many changes are in store. Although there will be challenges, it is a
wonderful time for humanity. Instead of being led like sheep in a
drug-induced stupor, people throughout the world are awakening to
their inherent power as spiritual beings capable of connecting with the
universal intelligence and using it to manifest [IT]self in this 3D/4D/5D
(multi-dimensional) world. As more people recognise and become
comfortable using this ability everything will change rapidly. You will
have the ability to manifest a world of cooperation and abundance with
ease and grace. Life will no longer be the struggle it once was.
Challenges will be accepted as opportunities to grow, and trust in
connection with source will replace allegiance to any governments or
religious belief structures. It will enable each person to take responsibility for their own wellbeing as well as cooperating to make the lives of everyone else better as well.
Embrace these wonderful changes and be prepared
for an amazing time of turmoil and transformation. Ted Murray

flexible use of airspace. The operational requirements of modern
military aircraft can be better accommodated with flexible airspace.
Flexibility is also key if aviation is to be as efficient and sustainable
as possible, especially as the skies are becoming busier year on year,
but this is only achievable through the close working that this
contract enables. Environmental benefits can be gained if civil aircraft don’t have
to avoid military airspace – more direct flights will use less fuel,
resulting in lower emission levels.
eached to the point of infertility. Massive dust storms pick up the loose soil and carry it as far as Tokyo and Taipei. During sunset, fumes from factories block out the sun well before it can be observed sinking below the horizon.
But all this may be finally changing.
In 2005, the Chinese government, in cooperation with the World Bank, completed the world’s largest watershed restoration on the upper banks of the Yellow River. Woefully under-publicized, the $500 million enterprise transformed an area of 35,000 square kilometers on the Loess Plateau — roughly the area of Belgium — from dusty wasteland to a verdant agricultural center.
The result of careful terracing, replanting of native vegetation and restrictions on grazing, the rejuvenated land now supports a thriving local agricultural economy. Even better, the new vegetation reduces flooding and dust storms by anchoring the region’s soil and is becoming a large carbon sink.
As the Copenhagen meeting on climate change begins, the restoration project may finally get the attention it deserves. A new film directed and written by John Liu, the founder of the Environmental Education Media Project and a veteran eco-film director, will tell the story of the Loess Plateau. The documentary, “Hope in a Changing Climate,” takes the story of the Loess Plateau as its lead, but quickly moves to Rwanda and Ethiopia where similar successes have come from a process known as forest landscape restoration.
Copenhagen is the first time forest landscape restoration will be on the agenda at a major international climate conference. Under what is known as Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation Plus (REDD+), Copenhagen negotiators hope to establish a regulatory regime to fight deforestation and manage forested areas. Proponents of forest landscape restoration are hoping this could include recognition and support for projects across the globe.
That could be a major step forward in popularizing landscape restoration. The process suffers from being literally as exciting as watching grass grow. It can take decades for vegetation to fully return, and strict attention must be paid to mundane matters like grazing and over-planting. Mr. Liu’s documentary overcomes this stumbling block with jaw-dropping fades from muddy denuded landscapes to lush fields.
It is becoming harder to deny the importance of forest landscape restoration in combating climate change. A new study by the World Resources Institute shows that about 1 billion hectares of land could be restored across the globe. Rough estimates indicate that carbon sequestration through this process could eliminate 50 percent more carbon from the atmosphere than a proactive cessation of deforestation could.
Still, forest landscape restoration is decidedly complex. Because ecosystems vary based on geography, and lasting success depends on the support of local residents, the process is pesteringly cross-disciplinary. Any forest landscape restoration project requires the know-how of engineers, ecologists and soil scientists, plus an understanding of local economics and politics.
In the Loess Plateau locals built and must maintain the terraces that have brought about their ecosystem’s incredible recovery.
Much hangs in the balance of the Copenhagen talks, and although forest landscape restoration is a shining light in what has over the past few months become a darkening debate, it is no panacea. It must be implemented in combination with carbon cuts and sound anti-deforestation policies.…

Dr. Walter Schempp, a German scientist who happens to be a descendant of Kepler, discovered
the Quantum Hologram fifty years ago or so, and this shows that Cartesian duality, the dominant
belief of the past four hundred years, that body and mind are realms of reality that DO NOT
interact - IS totally WRONG. Schempp's Quantum Holography, is showing us that the intuitive
communication I have experienced in space - and that others are also experiencing - is more
fundamental than our normal perceptions. In English we call intuition our sixth sense, but we
should really call it our first sense because it is rooted in the quantum world and the
communication to which it testifies has been around long before human sensory mechanisms
were evolved. There is an intrinsic awareness in nature that reaches down all the way to the
quantum level, to the subatomic particles that make up matter. That to me, and I know you will agree, Ervin, is exactly where the crux of the matter lies.
There is a form of consciousness in nature. This consciousness is as important and as
basic as energy.
A few months ago quantum physicists Leonard Susskind, Craig Hogan and Brian Greene - among
others - came up with the idea that space-time is a hologram where everything is "entangled".
We know that in a hologram all of the information that makes up an image is given everywhere and
at the same time, so not time is involved in going from one place to another - everything is present
everywhere. This holographic information is likely to be present in the universe, and it is likely to be
given for all time. It is not ephemeral. The latest experiment carried out a few months ago testify to this.
This instant interconnection, what physicists call entanglement and nonlocality, may be the
key to better understanding of the nature of reality. It is also the secret of a healthier life
and a healthier and more sustainable world. At the heart of space and time all things are
non locally connected, and we can tap into these "deep connections" and experience the
oneness you experienced in space (on your return from the moon). This experience is
important for us, because it is the source of our feeling of empathy and solidarity. It motivates us to cooperate, to work together. And cooperation, as we both know, is
a basic pre-condition of surmounting the problems we confront in the world today.
