    Pandora’s Box: A Fable From the Age of Science 

    Published on Aug 23, 2012

    Pandora’s Box, subtitled A Fable From the Age of Science, is a six part 1992 BBC documentary television series written and produced by Adam Curtis, which examines the consequences of political and technocratic rationalism.

    The episodes deal, in order, with communism in The Soviet Union, systems analysis and game theory during the Cold War, economy in the United Kingdom during the 1970s, the insecticide DDT, Kwame Nkrumah’s leadership in Ghana during the 1950s and 1960s and the history of nuclear power.

    The series was awarded a BAFTA in the category of “Best Factual Series” in 1993.

    Black Power

    This episode looks at how Kwame Nkrumah, the leader of the Gold Coast (which became Ghana on independence from the UK in 1957) from 1952 to 1966, set Africa ablaze with his vision of a new industrial and scientific age. At the heart of his dream was to be the huge Volta River dam, generating enough power to transform West Africa into an industrialised utopia and focal point of post-colonial Pan-Africanism. At first, it was hoped the UK would help finance the project, but after the Suez Crisis of 1956, interest was lost. Later, after meeting President Eisenhower and President Kennedy, American backing of the project materialised. A scheme was finally drawn up offering Kaiser Aluminum favourable conditions (including the smelting of aluminium imported from outside Ghana) and the dam was opened to great fanfare in January 1966.

    Weeks later, in February 1966, while Nkrumah was on a state visit to North Vietnam and China, his government was overthrown in a military coup (possibly CIA backed), and evidence of massive corruption and debt revealed. As of 1992, for many Ghanaians, the promised benefits of the project were still unrealised.

    New International Legislations 




    Pope issues Motu Proprio on new Financial Intelligence Authority.

    (Vatican Radio) The Vatican press office on Monday announced the publication of a Motu Proprio in which Pope Francis officially approves the new statutes of the Holy See’s Financial Intelligence Authority. This document follows up on earlier regulations from Pope Francis, and from his predecessor Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, to put in place norms on financial transparency and oversight of the Institute of Works of Religion (IOR), commonly known as the Vatican Bank.

    Please find below the full English text of the note from the Vatican press office on the new Motu Proprio:  The Apostolic Letter issued Motu Proprio of 15 November 2013, by which Pope Francis has approved the attached new Statutes of the Financial Intelligence Authority (F.I.A.), is being published today. This pontifical document will enter into force on 21 November 2013.

    As is known, with his Motu Proprio of 8 August 2013 and with the Law N. XVIII of 8 October 2013 on norms on transparency, supervision and financial intelligence, Pope Francis had strengthened further the institutional framework of the Holy See and the Vatican City State to prevent and contrast potential illicit activities in the financial sector and had accorded to the F.I.A., in addition to the functions that it already had on the basis of the Motu Proprio of Benedict XVI of 30 December 2010, the function of prudential supervision of those entities that carry out professionally financial activities. The present Statutes adapt F.I.A.’s internal structure to the functions it is now called to perform. In particular, the Statutes distinguish the role and functions of the President, the Board of Directors and the Directorate, so as to ensure that the F.I.A. may fulfill even more adequately its institutional functions in full autonomy and independence and in a manner consistent with the institutional and legal framework of the Holy See and the Vatican City State. In addition, the new Statutes establish a specific office for prudential supervision, providing it with the necessary professional resources.

    A look at TRUST(S) 

    Although some NEGATIVE and goolish entities out there will dissuade the seeker from making accurate self-reflection and prevent you, the seeker from the execution of your “WILL” for the betterment of your ‘trust’, the ONLY way for anyone to make way, real head-way is to do their own research and discover that reality for self.  For those who thought that giving me negative publicity with slander was an effective counter-intelligence strategy, the committee behind all these blogs cautions them, that for this one here, the best strategy is NOT to bring his NAME(S) up at all.  In this case, “SILENCE” on who I am is your best strategy. (Simple reason is, ‘ I do not promote any schemes, vices or devices ‘ and I do NOT sit idle when attacked!  Furthermore, my purpose is to help create systems for all, and it is NOT in your best interest to embarrass yourself at my expense.)

    There are agencies out there who appreciate the system networks that our committee have built and will continue to build in order to re-configure the matrix of energetic components that relate to the transfer and exchange of energy itself.  The algorithms are needed for some agencies and if you do not have the self-respect to or good sense to leave my work alone, you will ONLY escalate the publicity factor of all the systems at once.  It suggest you leave it alone and allow ‘time’ to run its slow course.  The OGCGC (OMNI-GALACTIC COMITAS GENTIUM) is non profit corporation that holds the rights to the intellectual property of the Account Science Architecture


    What IS it – (Some trolls have asked?)

    First, it is one of many models that is derived from a mathematical principle that resolves a universal problem (if you want to know what that ‘universal problem’- you will need to ask me, directly!).  (It is also called the MODEL 3Q.)  The full scale model is NOT available for just anyone and although what you see as codex or yantra may be revealing, note that the numeric algorithm for the symbols is a closely guarded tool. (lets leave it that way… I warned you and my court process is about communication to the executives to fix their administrative blunders… A dismissal is a WIN / WIN scenario for this one here, you primitive-low-grade-vibration-junkies! Get a grip of yourself before you make things worse by attacking me. I sat here in the dark for a reason, your attempt has already created a ripple that you will need to manage.)

    Second, there are many templates that have been built from the same principle and the ‘Account Science Architecture’ is the testimony for the ‘government and banking ‘infrastructure’.  The reason why ‘banking’ is listed is due to the nature of financial institutions and their relationships with accounts.  It is simply a tool for organization and capacity and although it is encrypted, much already can be deciphered from it.  ( if you want to know more about the  ‘Account Science Architecture’- you will need to ask me, directly!)

    A look at TRUST(S);

    Today we will look at the I.R.S manual concerning Trusts and other ways to protect your interests and Investments.  Later on We will amend this with the Canadian equivalents.



    Question: What is a “trust”?


    Answer: A trust is real or personal property held by one party for the benefit of another or oneself. A trust can be created for any purpose as long as it is not illegal or does not go against public policy. A trust must have a specific purpose, a designated beneficiary, and specific duties for the trustee as designated by the grantor.

    Life cycle of a public charity – sample organizing documents – Draft A – charter


    Charity – Sample Organizing Documents – Draft B – Declaration of Trust


    (NOTICE the end of the SAMPLE where its an agreement between Trustee and Trustee (?) – Do you know what that means?)

    Form 1041, U.S. Income Tax Return for Estates and Trusts

    (The Form (!))


    (Other Documents that may be needed with the Form)




    (Annual returns to File Transactions with Foreign Trusts and Receipt of Certain Gifts)


    _ _

    The Canadian equivalent is NO secret. The trick is how to use them!  What is it (the form?) for the Canadian person? Any one care to post an answer?

    _ _

    So Why is the Topic of Trust, relevant?

    The answer lies in the number of Trusts that are set up and who is currently managing them.  It is like a game of monopoly but the board game is currently NO-existant as to what the Issues, or Transfer(s) and/or Pay-Outs are.  Within that ‘government and banking board game’, every one that starts the game, is allowed to play with the default number of “chips” and accounts.  (The logic that an account (which has a #, is NOT an “account” requires another explanation.  If it was NOT an account, how could Public Trustees charge it and leave the non-assuming with a public debt of “money” where “money” was created out of thin air?    watch the interview with the ex-defense Minister of Canada  –

    https://consultforlife.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/end-tax-and-financial-slavery-now-with-paul-hellyer-thatchannel-com-2013-03m-12/ –   http://wp.me/p1Ua9p-dH

    (although there many examples out there.)

    IS THAT SOMETHING FOR THE TROLLS to get upset about?  Hey Trolls, go post this on your forum and make “this litigious moor” famous;


    Interpretation Act

    R.S.C., 1985, c. I-21


    « personne »

    “person”, or any word or expression descriptive of a person, includes a corporation;

    Since all corporation are doing some type of commerce its only reasonable to look at the circumstances around debt, (all you paid mercenaries, attention!!)

    The reality that debits and credits run side by side and when a charge exists leaving one a debtor, means that the other side of the ledger (credit) has been removed.  What the “eff” does that mean?

    Quick look at DOUBLE ENTRY ACCOUNTING:  (do more research on this for yourself!)

    “A double-entry bookkeeping system is a set of rules for recording financial and non-financial information in a general ledger system in which every transaction or event changes at least two different nominal ledger accounts.

    The name derives from the fact that financial information used to be recorded using pen and ink in paper books or “ledgers” and that each transaction was entered twice (hence “double-entry”), with one side of the transaction being called a debit and the other a credit.

    It was first codified in the 15th century by the Franciscan friar Luca Pacioli. In deciding which account has to be debited and which account has to be credited, the golden rules of accounting are used. This is also accomplished using the accounting equationEquity = Assets − Liabilities. The accounting equation serves as an error detection tool. If at any point the sum of debits for all accounts does not equal the corresponding sum of credits for all accounts, an error has occurred. It follows that the sum of debits and the sum of the credits must be equal in value.”

    above link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Double-entry_bookkeeping_system)

    Hmm, “It  follows that the sum of debits and the sum of the credits must be equal in value? ”  (Does that mean, someone already took the credit and whats the meaning of NOT doing the books properly?  Are we NOT in a debt-based-system? Why are people left with a debt, while the Agencies (corporate entities who can access your JURIDICAL PERSON have taken the credit), force people to balance an equation that NEVER eliminates the PUBLIC DEBT and leaves the “books” lob-sided.

    _ _

    THE TOPIC IS RELEVANT because, PUBLIC OFFICIALS ARE NOT GOING TO BALANCE THE BOOKS FOR YOU!  (Is this how the theft of the PENSION Funds occur? That includes all pension funds, Judges, Police, Nurses, …all of them…etc, due to the  accounting system that creates “money”out of thin air.” )  watch: http://wp.me/p1Ua9p-jU  (Looting the Pension Funds)

    What is more unfortunate is the level of ignorance and people acting as believers and allowing opinions stand in as TRUTH.  Everyone has an account (JURIDICAL PERSON);



    7. Everyone has the right to life, liberty and security of the person and the right not to be deprived thereof except in accordance with the principles of fundamental justice.


    1. Tout être humain possède la personnalité juridique; il a la pleine jouissance des droits civils.




    1. Every human being possesses juridical personality and has the full enjoyment of civil rights.

    1991, c. 64, a. 1.

    and they (people) must learn to balance the books at an ADMINISTRATIVE level.  In this game, there are NO titles of NOBILITY (sorry to offend the EGO, and the MEDIA,) or any other brand, even if the media says so.  LETS NOT BE PRIMITIVE here, although its difficult in this reality.  IF one sees the picture clearly and properly, two things would come to mind;

    1.  Its about simple accounting and the administration of the juridical person back to source.  ALL YOU PUBLIC OFFICIALS WILL GET SOON ENOUGH because the spirit of the future is PRIMITIVE, no matter how much FEAR you wish to impose on people, the FUTURE is always about UNIFICATION of all systems.

    2. (For the trolls), it may be wise to leave the creator of this blog alone.

    (and yes, the TAX OFFICE is the fiduciary of all of my juridical persons and so are all of you PUBLIC OFFICIALS, is that why you decided to be a ‘government agent’?  If NOT, I’ll remind you with your Oath of Office and Allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen and also remind you how the Vatican really is your superior. What does that mean? Insurance, with peoples belief in good things will happen. It mean that you too are insured,  NOT to make the spirit of people look bad or at wrong things, who is to say? Has it not already been written in your oath and duties to follow, NOT trail a path of destruction and falsehood(s)?)

    Beethoven: Revealing His True Identity (?) 

    Essays by Dr. Kwaku Person-Lynn – http://stewartsynopsis.com/Beethoven.htm


    The following essays are from a new book Touching The Soul: Revolution In History, Culture & Critical Issues – Quick Notes. It is now in the re-writing and editing stage.

    Beethoven: Revealing His True Identity


    In the 15th and 16th century, written history underwent a massive campaign of misinformation and deception. With Beethoven 2 the European slave trade in full swing, Afrikans were transported to various parts of the world and were stripped of every aspect of their humanity, and in most of western civilization, were no longer considered human. This triggered a wholesale interpretation of history that methodically excluded Afrikans from any respectful mention, other than a legacy of slavery. This can result in being taught, or socialized, from one perspective. In this instance, historical information tends to flow strictly from a European perspective. No judgment of right or wrong is being made here, only that the breadth was very narrow in scope.

    In an age where history is seriously being rewritten, new information is coming forth that is shocking intellectual sensitivities. What was once considered written in stone is now melting away with the discovery of facts that heretofore have been hidden or omitted; things so different that they are generally classified as controversial or unusual.

    What specifically is being referenced, is the true identity of Ludwig van Beethoven, considered Europe’s greatest classical music composer. Directly, Beethoven was a black man. Specifically, his mother was a Moor, that group of Muslim Africans who conquered parts of Europe–making Spain their capital–for some 800 years.

    In order to make such a substantial statement, presentation of verifiable evidence is compulsory. Let’s start with what some of Beethoven’s contemporaries and biographers say about his appearance. Frau Fisher, a close friend of Beethoven, described him with “blackish-brown complexion.” Frederick Hertz, German anthropologist, used these terms to describe him: “Negroid traits, dark skin, flat, thick nose.”

    Emil Ludwig, in his book “Beethoven,” says: “His face reveals no trace of the German. He was so dark that people dubbed him Spagnol [dark-skinned].” Fanny Giannatasio del Rio, in her book “An Unrequited Love: An Episode in the Life of Beethoven,” wrote “His somewhat flat broad nose and rather wide mouth, his small piercing eyes and swarthy [dark] complexion, pockmarked into the bargain, gave him a strong resemblance to a mulatto.” C. Czerny stated, “His beard–he had not shaved for several days–made the lower part of his already brown face still darker.”

    Following are one word descriptions of Beethoven from various writers: Grillparzer, “dark”; Bettina von Armin, “brown”; Schindler, “red and brown”; Rellstab, “brownish”; Gelinek, “short, dark.”

    Newsweek, in its Sept. 23, 1991 issue stated, “Afrocentrism ranges over the whole panorama of human history, coloring in the faces: from Australopithecus to the inventors of mathematics to the great Negro composer Beethoven.


    Of course, in the world of scholarship there are those who take an opposite view. In the book The Changing Image of Beethoven by Alessandra Comini, an array of arguments are presented. Donald W. MacArdle, in a 1949 Musical Quarterly article came to the conclusion that there was “no Spanish, no Belgian, no Dutch, no African” in Beethoven’s genealogy. Dominque-Rene de Lerma, the great musical bibliologist, came to the same conclusion.

    Included in this amazing discussion is a reference made of Beethoven’s teacher, Andre de Hevesy, in his book, Beethoven The Man. “Everyone knows the incident at Kismarton, or Eisenstadt, the residence of Prince Esterhazy, on his birthday. In the middle of the first allegro of Haydn’s symphony, His Highness asked the name of the author. He was brought forward.

    “‘What!’ exclaimed the Prince, ‘the music is by the blackamoor (a black Moor). Well, my fine blackamoor, henceforth thou art in my service.’

    “‘What is thy name?’

    “‘Joseph Haydn.’”

    We have all been fed false information for reasons previously mentioned. It is no secret that scholars, writers, critics, advertisers and Hollywood have changed history for their own specific reasons. What is uniquely different in the intellectual landscape, people of color now have an army of sophisticated scholars to combat the continuation and dissemination of false information that has been accepted as standard, as well as the canon in academia.

    It is hoped that the revealing of this information will motivate others to critically look at all data flowing in their brains for authenticity. Hollywood is notorious for changing facts. I am not saying to hate Hollywood, but we do have to hold it accountable for disseminating inaccurate depictions, especially when it changes the course of history, by which our children are influenced.

    3.) Engraving by Blasius Hofel, Beethoven, 1814, color facsimile of engraving after a pencil drawing by Louis Letronne. This engraving was regarded in Beethoven’s circle as particularly lifelike. Beethoven himself thought highly of it, and gave several copies to his friends.

    Foreign Investment Protection Agreement 

    DID YOU KNOW, while the “CRAZY” ROB FORD Scandal continues, a certain LEGISLATION IS ABOUT TO BE PASSED?

    FURTHERMORE, concerning the ROB FORD SCANDAL and his COUNCILLORS “trying”to get him out, DID YOU KNOW THAT ROB FORD, like all MAYORS are signed into OFFICE by THE CITY CLERK?


    SERIOUSLY, does ANYONE READ THE G–DAMN LEGISLATIONS? ROB FORD WOULD BE OUTTA THERE IF “HIS BOSS” (NOT THE COUNCILLORS) SAID SO… IN FACT, I WONDER WHAT RISK MANAGEMENT (thats a department in every city that deals with public official breach, malfeasance etc…), and the CITY CLERK (If anyone checks the Municipal Act or the Local Government Act or the Charter of Toronto, or any city, you will find the order of hierarchy in regards to who holds the liability), THINK OF ALL THIS,

    (Maybe Rob, just may be that it is the City Clerk and all the City Managers (these are other agents behind the scenes in conjunction with the City Clerk) that have asked your Councillors to mitigate the damage so that they can stay out of the spot light. Remember, its the City Clerk that also approves (signs) your Councillors into office…. (BUT OF COURSE, THEY ALL KNOW THIS…..don’t they?)

    regardless, the NEWS or MEDIA conveniently leaves out crucial liability factors such as

    1. THE TWO MURDERED so-called hoodlums; (yes, FORD needs to answer the question about the murders)



    lets all do some homework on this: (it only takes a couple of tweets)

    http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_01m25_e.htm (MUNICIPAL ACT – ontario)
    start around here; PART VI – PRACTICES AND PROCEDURES – Municipal Organization and Administration

    http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/Statutes/English/elaws_statutes_06c11_e.htm#BK174 (City of Toronto Act, 2006)
    start around here; PART VI – THE CITY AND ITS GOVERNANCE – Officers and Employees of the City

    36:1 Bill 86, Better Local Government Act, 1996 http://www.ontla.on.ca/web/bills/bills_detail.do?locale=en&BillID=1424&ParlSessionID=36:1&isCurrent=false
    start where it defines powers of clerk (then goto Municipal Elections Act); http://www.e-laws.gov.on.ca/html/statutes/english/elaws_statutes_96m32_e.htm#BK15
    goto; Election Officials;

    Now, after the Election, the Inaugural Conference takes place, this is where the City Clerk signs off on the Mayor and the Councillors. (Are you having a hard time finding that “private”document? Take a trip to the City Archives and under “microfiche ( http://www.wisegeek.org/what-is-microfiche.htm#slideshow ) you can certify that the Mayor and the Councillors were indeed signed off by the City Clerk;

    NEVERTHELESS, LETS LOOK AT A LINK to the FIPA THAT WILL SHED SOME LIGHT ON THIS NEW LEGISLATION LURKING LIKE IN THE BACKGROUND, as we all take the bait with such a scandal as a Mayor of a City is busted for smoking crack cocaine. (Seriously, IF ROB FORD was NOT a White Man, there is NO WAY, he would still be there….even MArion Barry went to Jail for smoking crack as the Mayor of a United States City)


    (Isn’t that fun, people…reading legislation? – because if we cant do just that, we might as well be smoking crack ourselves or being distracted by this scandal instead of exercising our critical thinking. If you like to continue chasing the “bait”you can find more @) https://consultforlife.wordpress.com/public-trustees-behaving-badly/

    SO, to end the distraction with the Mayor Ford, does the Mayor NOT know the City Clerk signed him in?

    Foreign Investment Protection Agreement




    At any moment, Prime Minister Harper could pass the most significant international investors’ deal of a generation.


    In fall 2012, Prime Minister Harper quietly announced that he wanted to pass the biggest international investors’ deal in a generation, without a single vote in Parliament. Together, the Leadnow.ca community raised the alarm about the danger of FIPA’s secret investor-state courts. We united hundreds of thousands of Canadians, making national news, and divided Harper’s caucus forcing him to pause and think twice about ratifying this secretive and binding investor deal.

    How do the secret tribunals in FIPA undermine our democracy?

    Investor-state lawsuits undermine our democratic control. Right now, an American company called Lone Pine Resources is using a similar measure in NAFTA to sue Canada for $250 million dollars. Why? They are suing because Quebec placed a temporary hold on gas fracking to study the controversial practice’s impacts on health and environment.8

    Similarly, if BC tries to regulate or block Enbridge’s Northern Gateway Pipeline, Sinopec, another of China’s state-owned oil company with investments in Canada’s natural resource infrastructure, may be able to sue for damages, and we may never even hear about it the case or the details of the results.5,6

    What are other countries doing?

    Other countries like India, South Africa and Australia are moving away from this kind of investment deal. Last year Australia rejected investor-state arbitration due to concerns that it would “constrain the ability of Australian governments to make laws on social, environmental and economic matters”.7,8

    Can our provinces and territories stand up against FIPA?

    We live in a democratic federation, and our provinces should have to consent to any major federal decision that would undermine their authority. Our provinces and territories can defend their constitutional powers from FIPA.2,3 If our premiers and provincial leaders act now to defend our rights, they can help stop Harper from locking us into FIPA for 31 years.

    Has there ever been broad provincial consultation on an investment deal like FIPA?

    Yes, our provinces have defended our rights before. In the 1990s, the B.C. government played a leadership role in the successful fight against the Multilateral Agreement on Investment (MAI). The B.C. government established a special committee to examine, inquire into and make recommendations respecting all aspects of the MAI. The committee considered key issues – implications of the agreement for Canada and British Columbia, how to represent the interests of British Columbians with respect to the agreement, and the most effective means of increasing British Columbians’ awareness and knowledge of the issues arising out of the agreement. It held 8 days of expert witness hearings, followed by public hearings in 8 cities. An educational video was produced and shown through various television outlets, and released to other media.

    The committee recommended that:

    “When negotiating the MAI or any future investment treaty, the federal government must ensure that the agreement does not apply to matters within provincial jurisdiction, including local government measures, without the express consent of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia … If the federal government fails to provide for such consent, then the provincial government should explore all means, including legal action, to defend vigorously its own jurisdictional rights and those of local governments to represent the interests of British Columbians.”9

    How are First Nations helping to lead the fight against FIPA?

    Under Canada’s constitution, the Government of Canada has a duty to consult First Nations before entering into any deal that affects their Aboriginal Title, Rights, and Treaty Rights.

    The BC Union of Indian Chiefs has written an open letter to Prime Minister Harper condemning the Canada-China FIPA. They begin their letter: “On behalf the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, we are writing to firmly express, advise and direct the Government of Canada to reject the Foreign Investment Promotion and Protection Agreement with China as the Government of Canada has breached its fiduciary duty to consult First Nations on our respective constitutionally-enshrined and judicially-recognized Aboriginal Title, Rights and Treaty Rights.”9

    The Chiefs of Ontario have also written to both Prime Minister Harper and China’s Ambassador to Canada advising that the Canada-China FIPA investment deal violates First Nation Treaty rights and international law, and should be postponed indefinitely, pending nation-to-nation discussions between Canada and First Nations.10,11

    The Hupacasath First Nation have even taken the Federal Government to court over FIPA, supported by over $380,000 crowd-funded by the Leadnow community and allies. By challenging FIPA in court, the Hupacasath First Nation are buying time that we can use to rally Canadians to stop this bad deal for good, and we are deeply grateful for their leadership on behalf of all Canadians.4 For more information about the legal challenge, and to donate to support it, see http://www.leadnow.ca/fipa-legal
