It's a Victory



Veterans For Peace member Tarak Kauff from Woodstock, NY has been to Standing Rock in North Dakota three times.

Here is an interview with him upon his most recent visit there earlier this month along with the couple thousand of other US military veterans.

Tarak comes to Maine frequently and was arrested with the Zumwalt 12 here in Bath, Maine last June 18 when we blocked the entrance to the 'christening' ceremony for the latest Zumwalt 'stealth' destroyer at Bath Iron Works.

Jury selection in the trial of the Zumwalt 12 will be January 5 in West Bath District Court.

This is the face of the next 4 years at least.
Not a face of victims but of what the "little" people can accomplish. A little courage and a lot of God. Kauff said that each of us has what was brought together in Standing Rock. The Bible said it as well, the hills and the rocks shout and dance for joy. Ok, so I put several psalms proverbs and prophecies together to get that. I just got a "quantum computer simulator" just by using a search engine (not 'giggle') for open source quantum computing. Quantum holds a lot of theory, one part is that each center of each particle or unit of space,time, energy and mass is simultaneously in the exact center of the universe. And no, I don't have much of a "logical" handle on that. But I know that in the early 90s Oxford researchers sent an email to Auckland NZ and it got there at the same time it was sent. Under Einstein's Special Relativity that would mean the message arrived BEFORE it was sent.

and that swarms of insects and birds and bats react the same way, synchronized, from one part of the swarm to any other part, often miles across. Not possible unless... There IS a map and a plan of all creation and yeah, it's hard for somebody who almost lives mathematical theory to see or think non-linear, extremely non-linear thought and further to communicate in those invisible patterns.

The only way to do it is turn off the noise of what we "know". And just feel it. Just be it. Not control it, just accept it.

Not being facetious, because I have been in the Medicine "sweat" Lodge. If I go further I'll get into some kind of mysticism that would make the most patient reader believe me insane. And some already do, so I ain't going to press my luck further. Just try it.And what you see in the total darkness will teach you. Before the West Door Invitation I would feel almost like I couldn't survive. Then it changed, or I changed. For being so hot it sure was cool.
