There are microcosm events that are a pretext for even greater events —  little by little, the acclamation process is preparing us for the microcosm of what can be seen as a Terrestrial Mega Risk. Civilization by weight alone makes us vulnerable to Terrestrial Mega Risks and it appears that a microcosm of events is demonstrating the vulnerability of humans in the face of what would be seen as science fiction mega-disasters and synchronistic occurrences. It’s almost impossible for most of us to mentally accept the most difficult of all consequences; loss of inhabitable land because of a rapidly changing environment and natural and man-made disasters. How are we to cope with so much uncertainty? Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks about BABYLON BARBIE – MICROCAUSTIC MEGA RISKS.






Tonight, I think it would be interesting to focus on what I see as microcosm events that are pretexts for even greater events — that little by little, the acclamation process is preparing us for the microcosm of what can be seen as a Terrestrial Mega Risk.

In order to illustrate my point, I have to use a bit of science fiction — to demonstrate some creepy synchronicity.

Now mind you, much of what happens in science fiction lives firmly outside the realm of possibility — given the world as we currently understand it but a lot of what we see in sci-fi is rooted in fundamental principles that are proven or, at least, theoretically sound.

I want to talk about one of my favorite science fiction TV shows — it was a cult favorite called FRINGE.

The show’s third season explored some of the alternate universe tropes that we are all now taking for granted in movies right now. It seems that Multiverse theory is becoming a go-to for superhero films right now.

Walter one of the characters discovers a dimension similar to ours. But it’s also remarkably different.

We know this universe is more technologically advanced than our own. It features hyperbaric chambers, sophisticated all-in-one ID’s called “Show Me”s and the widespread use of a substance called amber, which characters use to quarantine large areas. The substance starts as a gas and hardens into a mineral similar to amber, preserving its contents. That said, it also kills everything inside of it because, as you might imagine, being surrounded by amber makes things like breathing difficult.

The synthetic amber is used to hold in stasis areas that have been damaged where dimensions have opened. They hold trees, insects, animals and people in suspended animation — so that the area surrounding it will not be contaminated from the other dimension.

The amber substance in Fringe was created by an alternate scientist and isn’t a natural substance– it is sprayed on an area that has been contaminated and or sends out radiation.

Something similar is about to happen to Maui and there are many eerie synchronistic impressions that I wanted to share — Maui will not be suspended in amber but it will be turned pink.

With more of the burn zone searched each day, the charred black earth and ash will soon turn pink as a “water-based glue” is applied to prevent winds and rain from kicking it up and running off into the ocean.

Workers for the Environmental Protection Agency’s incident response team will begin applying the biodegradable, nontoxic material, known as a “soil tackifier,” in the coming days, using water trucks that will spray the material from hoses, an agency official said.

The Tackifire will include a Coploylmer of Vinyl acetate,  ethylene and vinyl ester with mineral fillers and a protective colloid Liquid product.

The glue like material, which will turn pink, will be applied to stop toxic substances in the burn area from running off into the ocean, according to the EPA.

Another synchronicity to consider was that long before Barbenheimer, was a thing — Ryan Gable and I did a show called “Barbie The Destroyer of Worlds.”

We speculated about how the combining of The Pink world of Barbie was being juxtaposed with the charcoal gray world of Oppenheimer– meaning that there was going to be a transformation where a Pink Happy world was about to change into a post-nuclear, charcoal grey world where paradise will be reduced to rubble.

From the presentation we speculated that this was a social experiment that explores themes of appearances vs. reality; of course, we live in a world of hyperreality and things are not as they seem and Oppenheimer of course is going to shake us into reality by showing us the power and what can be the end of civilization.

It is a pink world versus a world of charcoal.

But the direct comparison between the two makes for an interesting clash of film theories and understanding of what is more appealing to American audiences, especially in a period where divisiveness and diametrical opposition are on the rise.

With both films addressing what it means to live a meaningful life, whether that means considering one’s mortality or examining the ramifications of world-changing, destructive possibility, the popularity of one film or the other could reflect which of these societal anxieties audiences are more concerned with.

Well, we saw the charcoal black devastation of Paradise when Maui caught fire and the devastation of Lahaina looked very much like a Nuclear attack– It seems that both films were predictive programming where The Pink Paradise is burned to the ground and in an ironic twist the black charcoal world will be pink again — but this time a symbol or a Microcosm of gray charcoal being suspended in pink resin.

In a fit of ghoulish Irony the color pink or ʻākala is established and designated as the official color of the island of Maui.

Take this as a lesson in social engineering. From pink to gray to pink again– and the synchronicity does not stop as we see yet another city where humans are plagued with gray mud in Nevada.

The Burning Man festival was hit by freak flooding that left attendees stranded at the Nevada desert campsite. The place called Black Rock city was hit by Monsoon rains that stranded 70,000 festival goers in deep gray mud.

There were all sorts of rumors that the festival had more problems as there was one death reported and several other unconfirmed reports of a hemorrhagic disease breaking out and cannibalism as campers tried to survive.

A local nurse denied any and all of these reports, however, there may have been accounts of people contracting trench foot something that soldiers contracted in World War I.

According to the Reno Gazette Journal, the dust of the playa is alkaline and prolonged exposure can cause skin irritations and lung complaints, maybe even incidents of coughing up blood.

Festivalgoers were urged to “shelter in place” until the waters subside and to also conserve food and other supplies.

Some were predicting that if the festival goers were stranded for too long there would be a Mad max scenario in the making.

It was announced earlier that Burning Man was declared a national emergency because it was flooded, and so they sent in FEMA.

Watching the reaction to this disaster should send a message of what could happen if an even bigger disaster were to happen in your city or small town.

In an apocalypse, the pink world goes black and if you are not prepared in can be terrifying.

On Wednesday, October 4 at 2:20 p.m. ET, every TV, radio and cellphone in the United States should blare out the distinctive, jarring electronic warning tone of an emergency alert, accompanied by a notice along these lines:

“This is a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System, issued by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, covering the United States from 14:20 to 14:50 hours ET. This is only a test. No action is required by the public.”

The test is planned of the entire nation’s Emergency Alert System, a tryout to ensure everything is working correctly in the event of a big, national disaster or attack.

In the wake of the horrific fires on the island of Maui on August 8, when warning sirens that might have alerted people to the danger weren’t deployed, it’s a reminder of what systems are in place should they be needed.

On Wednesday, October 4, the message will go out at the same moment across every time zone in the United States.

That means 2:20 in the afternoon in the East, 1:20 p.m. Central time, 12:20 p.m. Mountain time and 11:20 a.m. on the West Coast. People in Alaska will hear it at 10:20 a.m. and in Hawaii the alarms will go off at 8:20 a.m.

The message will be heard and seen pretty much everywhere. It’s being conducted with the participation of radio and television broadcasters, cable systems, satellite radio and television providers and wireline video providers.

So all across the United States, TV shows will be interrupted, radio programming halted and phones will get a warning message. The message will go out in both English and Spanish, showing up in most places in English but in Spanish depending on the language settings of the device.

Of course this raises an alarm as to why the system needs to be tested simultaneously all over the country – could this be a drill that could go real world?

Are we prepared for something that is in the planning and the authorities need to make sure that emergency systems are ready for an attack or something else?

These events need to be evaluated and preparations should be your responsibility for you and your family.

What is even more telling is that this is all part of a plan—something that was in the planning for 13 years—or maybe more.

In 2010, the Rockefeller Foundation funded a scenario-planning exercise that envisioned how hypothetical future events could impact the development of technology.

It was basically the framework for a post-scarcity economy. It has a chapter called ‘Lock Step’ which reports a global pandemic as if it happened in the past, but which is clearly intended as a rehearsal for the future.

Rockefeller Foundation’s Operation Lock Step: “Under the guise of a pandemic we will create a prison state”.

Now keep in mind, at the time of its printing, all of these events were hypothetical.

The implementation of totalitarian control is described:

“During the pandemic, national leaders around the world tightened their authority and imposed strict rules and restrictions, from mandatory face masks to body temperature controls at the entrance of communal areas such as train stations and supermarkets”.

Clearly, tightening up authority is the desired answer. But it gets worse, according to this ‘Scenario of the Future’:

“Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and surveillance of citizens and their activities stalled and was even intensified.”

“In developed countries, this increased surveillance took many forms: biometric identifiers for all citizens, for example, and tighter regulation of key industries whose stability was considered vital to national interests.”

Cities would disappear and would be replaced with more efficient cities– population would be reduced to fit parameters for agendas dealing with mega risk opportunities. like pandemics, and mass die-offs. natural disasters or man-made disasters that would push us closer to extinction-level events.

It would also be easier to maintain order in smaller cities and neighboring regions using biometrics and surveillance:

According to the document:

“In developed countries, this increased surveillance took many forms: biometric identifiers for all citizens, for example, and tighter regulation of key industries whose stability was considered vital to national interests.”

The same Rockefeller Foundation came up with step two: a handbook for implementing new control systems for the world post-pandemic. Only when all the required control networks are in place can the world open up again.

It also mentioned that this time would be called the Decade of Doom — where the world would see major cities crumble and populations disappear through various mega-risk events.

It illustrates that between 2010 and the mid-2020s the Earth will see some of the worst catastrophes ever recorded.

Now keep in mind the document was released in 2010 outlining scenarios for future doom scenarios. In a paragraph summary, it states:

“Not surprisingly, this opening series of deadly asynchronous catastrophes (there were more) put enormous pressure on an already overstressed global economy that had entered the decade still in recession. Massive humanitarian relief efforts cost vast sums of money, but the primary sources from aid agencies to developed-world governments had run out of funds to offer.

Most nation-states could no longer afford their locked-in costs, let alone respond to increased citizen demands for more security, more healthcare coverage, more social programs and services, and more infrastructure repair.”

Many catastrophes that were predicted were eco-collapse brought on by catastrophic weather and earth changes caused by solar weather and possible threats from space.

There were reports of major cities being wiped off the face of the earth due to severe firestorms brought on by nuclear war, and sun storms creating massive fires burning down major population centers.

Much of what was predicted in the workbook has conveniently transpired.

The workbook predicted mass loss of life in several African countries. The geological upheaval of crust displacement, climate collapse, violent earthquakes, disease outbreaks, and a possible asteroid strike which throws much of the world into chaos.

All mega-risk events are where people become refugees in their own countries.

If you do the math and read websites dealing with what are called Mega Risk events, you will learn about how many times we humans have almost vanished off the face of the earth. It is true that we all seem to think that civilization would not be wiped clean from the planet — but using mega risk theory, we learn that perhaps macrocosms — or mini deaths occur, and little by little earth mega risks build up over time.

Add all of us up, all 7 billion human beings on earth, and clumped together we weigh roughly 750 billion pounds.

This is more than 100 times the biomass of any large animal that’s ever walked the Earth. And we’re still multiplying. Most demographers say we will hit 9 billion before we peak.

Populations have waxed and waned — and even though people are demanding we save the planet — they probably won’t tell you that if the earth wants a species to go — it will find a way to devour it little by little.

Once in our history, the world-wide population of human beings skidded so sharply that we were down to roughly a thousand reproductive adults. One study says we hit as low as 40.

Forty sounds really bad — and it sounds unbelievable– Well, the technical term is 40 “breeding pairs” (children not included). More likely there was a drastic dip and then 5,000 to 10,000 bedraggled Homo sapiens struggled together in pitiful little clumps hunting and gathering for thousands of years until, in the late Stone Age, we humans began to recover.

Around 70,000 B.C., a volcano called Toba, on Sumatra, in Indonesia went off, blowing roughly 650 miles of vaporized rock into the air. It is the largest volcanic eruption we know of, dwarfing everything else.

That eruption dropped roughly six centimeters of ash — the layer can still be seen on land — over all of South Asia, the Indian Ocean, the Arabian and South China Sea. According to the Volcanic Explosivity Index, the Toba eruption scored an “8”, which translates to “mega-colossal” — that’s two orders of magnitude greater than the largest volcanic eruption in historic times at Mount Tambora in Indonesia, which caused the 1816 “Year Without a Summer” in the northern hemisphere.

With so much ash, dust and vapor in the air, it’s a safe guess that Toba “dimmed the sun for six years, disrupted seasonal rains, choked off streams and scattered whole cubic miles of hot ash and mud across acres and acres of plants.

African game became scarce; early humans, living in East Africa just across the Indian Ocean from Mount Toba, probably starved.

Then — and this is more a conjectural, based on arguable evidence — an already cool Earth got colder. The world was having an ice age 70,000 years ago, and all that dust hanging in the atmosphere may have bounced warming sunshine back into space.

There’s in fact evidence that the average temperature dropped 20-plus degrees in some spots,” after which the great grassy plains of Africa may have shrunk way back, keeping the small bands of humans small and hungry for hundreds, if not thousands of more years.

So we almost vanished.

But now we’re back.

It didn’t happen right away. It took almost 200,000 years to reach our first billion which was in 1804. We reached 3 billion by 1960, another billion almost every 13 years since then, till by October 2011, we zipped past the 7 billion marker.

The lesson of Toba the Super volcano is that there is nothing inevitable about our domination of the world. With a little bad luck, we can go too.

We once almost did.

We’re unique in the history of mammals. We’re unique in this history of vertebrates. The fossil record shows that no other species of large-bodied beast — above the size of an ant, say or an Antarctic krill — has ever achieved anything like such abundance as the abundance of humans on Earth right now.

But civilization by weight alone makes us vulnerable to Terrestrial Mega Risks and it appears that a microcosm of events is demonstrating the vulnerability of humans in the face of what would be seen as science fiction mega disasters and events.

Today’s Earth System Mega Risks are real even though seemingly science fiction because of the near impossibility of mentally accepting the most-difficult-of-all-consequences; loss of inhabitable land because of rapidly changing environments, and natural and manmade disasters.

Nobody wants to believe the worst can happen. But truth is stranger than fiction. The threats posed by mega risks are real and active and advanced.

There are private groups like The Council for the Human Future that are exclusively dedicated to itemizing the full panoply of mega risks to the planet with a mission of organizing humanity under one umbrella to do something constructive.

Human extinction has always been a great motivator to organize a world order. We have seen megadeaths and mega-risks with events that have transpired recently and one has to wonder if they are preparing for an even bigger event that includes an even bigger mega-risk event.

    All this is leading up to what is in the Bible. We are in the end times. Your shows have been very incredible as your guests give us insight into the future. Though we are not to fear what needs to happen, we have been told to place our trust in GOD’s Mercy. This is the final battle between good and evil. We belong to GOD, not Satan.

    By spraying that area with a pink substance, to “prevent toxins from leaking out” , I take that as Their Admission of Guilt for causing the fire/weather event.

    Well, they certainly wern’t worried about vinyl chloride in Ohio, so if the Maui toxin is worse than vinyl chloride, that seems unlikely to me, so something else is the purpose, …..another trial run etc

    The photos from Maui sites look more like a weapon attack than a natural event….if that’s true, the question becomes which govt used it?

    The demonic strongholds around todays musical artists is what you see brought out in their music. Taylor Swift’s mom was once married into the LaVay family. The Church of Satan patriarchs.

    Toba was the name of that super volcano that went off 70,000 years ago that caused that population bottle neck in the human race, yet according to that DISCOVERY CHANNEL documentary about super volcanoes they said there was more diversity in a group of chimps than in the entire human race.
    This is fascinating, Clyde and would make a great show, but when I have commented on things that weren’t directly related to the show, you admonished me, in fact several months ago, when a caller tried commenting on one of your on air comments, about old people, as I recall, you shut him up. I think that was Jim from Ohio. The same regarding the earlier caller tonight, regarding all those concerts you just remarked about before going off the air tonight.

    The “seal, trumpet, and bowl judgements” described in the Book of Revelation, will effectively destroy the present day Earth.
    It will , however, be “built back better” with a new Heaven and a new Earth. Just not by ‘BS’ (Beast System) globalists who contribute with their own eclectic devastation.

    Que sera sera whatever will be will be. The future is not ours to see. The old Doris Day song my mom used to like that.. hard saying anymore what’s going to happen You can get killed crossing the street going to the mailbox? Or ride a motorcycle when somebody’s playing with their cell phones. There’s probably 1 million things to kill ya.. the weather biological threat nuclear threat geological anonymous…… Take it take care joy every day to the max. Life is precious.
