Seeds of Death

cornCHOICE is meaningless if consumers are not able to make informed decisions.

And the cornerstone of our capitalist market, for better or worse, is consumer choice.

The debate over genetically modified organisms (G.M.O.’s) used in our foods has been long and controversial.

Those decrying “frankenfood” railing against those portraying the process as the savior from food shortages and high food prices.

The battle over labeling these foods has been gaining significant traction in recent weeks, with states like Colorado putting labeling initiatives on their ballots for the upcoming elections.


The G.M.O. You Didn’t Know

Consumer empowerment should be central in G.M.O. labeling debate.

In preparation of the global March Against Monsanto, you are invited to watch our award-winning documentary Seeds of Death free.



The leaders of Big Agriculture—Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta—are determined that world’s populations remain ignorant about the serious health and environmental risks of genetically modified crops and industrial agriculture.

Deep layers of deception and corruption underlie both the science favoring GMOs and the corporations and governments supporting them.

Angels in the Snow

SNOW angels, as far as we know, are only human-made depressions formed in an area of snow in the shape of an angel.

Snow angel making is a classic and fun winter child’s game — adults too can’t resist.

Nearly everyone living in northern latitudes knows about making “snow angels.” If you don’t, or haven’t, here’s the recipe.

The creation of the snow angel is easy. The first step is to find an undisturbed blanket of snow.

The next step is to lie on your back on the newly fallen snow, spreadeagled. Arms and legs are then swept back and forth, creating the winged shape.

The finished creation should have the appearance of an angel, the movement of the arms having formed wings, and that of the legs having formed the dress.

The trick is always to launch oneself carefully out of the newly formed impression without disturbing the design.

Then, if possible, take giant steps away minimizing any tell-tale footprints — leaving behind, for passers-by to marvel, a glistening angel dropped magically out of heaven!

The Delusions of Science

MANY scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world.

The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in.

The impressive achievements of science seem to support this confident attitude. But in recent research including his own studies, frontier biologist Rupert Sheldrake believes otherwise.

His experiments reveal unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology.

Resolutely dismissive of paranormal findings or brain-free consciousness, traditional science asserts that matter is the gold standard. But even great authorities especially in modern science may be found to err, and scientific dicta are frequently influenced more by personal prejudice than rigorous research.

A pure impartial science always weighs “the laboriously acquired knowledge of the senses with the intuitive omniscience of the Spiritual divine Soul,” said H. P. Blavatsky, world Theosophy teacher.


As Hermes believed so does Theosophy, she wrote (Secret Doctrine 1:296): that “knowledge differs from sense which is only of the physical world — but Knowledge is the end of sense which is only the illusion of our physical brain and its intellect.”

It is “self-contradictory, and simply absurd — from a scientific point of view, as much and even more than from the occult aspect of the esoteric knowledge.”

When the high priests of material science, she wrote, “resolve consciousness into a secretion from the grey matter of the brain, and everything else in nature into a mode of motion, we protest against the doctrine as being un-philosophical.”

In a formal yet hilarious experiment he calls “Telephone Telepathy,” Rupert Sheldrake demonstrates that consciousness can indeed fly away on its own from one mind to another.

Olympic Update: Lindsey can Finally Fly

Lindsey Van

WOMEN’S ski jumping has a long and troubled history, longer even than the trials and tribulations of Women’s Suffrage.

H. P. Blavatsky’s mother Helena Andreyvna Fadeyev, a novelist, known as the “Russian George Sand,”  was an advocate of women’s rights.

Mme. Blavatsky herself was passionately involved in the movement.

“It was man, not woman, who became the first sinner and was turned out of Paradise,” she argued in The Pioneer, December 2,1880.

“If man is endowed with stronger muscles, woman’s nerves surpass his in capacity for endurance. The biggest brain ever found—in weight and size—is now proved to have belonged to a woman.”

“If so many women were found good enough to reign and govern nations, they surely must have been fit to vote. … Law was ever unjust to woman; and instead of protecting her, it seeks but to strengthen her chains.”

“The very first organized ski jumping event in history featured at least one participant in a skirt. Ingrid Olavsdottir Vestby jumped 20 meters that day in 1862,” says Lead Writer Jonathan Snowden in today’s Bleacher Report, “and brave women have been jumping ever since.”

One of those women is Lindsey Van, and this is the story of her struggle for Olympic recognition and acceptance in her chosen sport, and for all female athletes:
