5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific Examination Of The Nature Of Reality & Illusion, Dec 2 2003
David Icke has become famous (or infamous, depending upon one's perception) for speaking and writing passionately about the manipulative, oppressive nature of civilization and the global control structure that implements this system of control. Icke's underlying philosophy and motivation is spiritual - he hopes to assist others in their awakening from the delusions of our reality matrix, and sees those fighting against the perceived system as caught up in the illusion of good vs. evil. In Tales From The Time Loop, Icke reports that he got the message in an altered state that All That Exists Is Infinite Love, everything else is illusion. Icke shares insights he received while in a state of expanded awareness associated with use of a hallucinogenic Amazon herb - a state of awareness that he admits would ideally be reached without any external aid. Icke provides an expansive definition of what "love" means, while he provides a thoughtful exploration of the physics and metaphysics of how the illusory "matrix" is created and how it functions. The explanations of spiritual reality and scientific evidence of the "new physics" that support Icke's paradigm are solid, and a welcome improvement over Icke's previous books. The discussion of the history of manipulation and the reptilian consciousness operating within the matrix is somewhat redundant for readers of Icke's previous books, but even these sections have some enhanced insights, making this book a must read for Icke's admirers and those seeking to expand their understanding of existence and of the world we perceive as humans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise overview of medical suppression, racketeering, Nov. 24 2003
Lynes does a solid job of looking at the history of allopathic medical racketeering in the USA, focusing on cancer treatments that have been suppressed because they are safe, natural, cheap, and effective. The history of Royal Rife is impressive and well documented, and his proven electromagnetic treatments remain suppressed, with practitioners persecuted by the established allopathic medical cartel and their allies. Lynes documents his research well, and offers enlightenment to those seeking to understand the history of the bogus war on cancer and medical racketeering. The only major aspect of the topic not discussed is evidence that certain elements of global oligarchic powers see allopatic medical control and practices as a means of population control or population reduction.

4.0 out of 5 stars good overview of what to expect from applied kinesiology, Nov. 20 2003
This book is designed to give readers an introduction to muscle testing used in health assessment and treatment. It is written for the patient rather than as a guide for practitioners, and thus focuses mainly on what treatments are like, what they can accomplish, and what can be expected from these approaches. This book is useful for its intended purpose, but doesn't provide a clear understanding of the science behind kinesiology or ways of developing skills as a practitioner to make therapeutic use of this.

Secret Societies of America's Elite: From the Knights Templar to Skull and Bones
Secret Societies of America's Elite: From the Knights Templar to Skull and Bones

Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 19.02

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting Look At Secret Societies & Elite Intrigues, Nov. 8 2003
In this book, which examines the historical period ranging from the medieval beginnings of the Templars to the present occupant of America's White House, the author looks at how elite families, secret societies, and corrupt business activities (piracy, drug trade, slavery, smuggling, etc.) have intertwined in guiding political affairs. His research is broad but careless in places, and there are relatively few footnotes and citations for the many pieces of information that Sora presents. This book covers details of history that have been skipped by most other authors who examine similar topics, while Sora does an excellent job at presenting general themes of how secret societies have functioned and the importance of illicit business and financial activities in building the power of the elite families in our civilization. This book is a valuable read for history buffs seeking out suppressed themes and facts, but may be tedious in places for people who are bored by details. The author has tackled a large topic in a medium sized text, which leaves certain flaws evident in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Examination of Nutrition, Brain Chemistry, & Addiction, Oct. 26 2003
This book clearly documents how nutritional imbalances contribute to addictive substance use, and how nutritional treatment can help safely and effectively resolve problems with addictions. The author also points out how prescribed psychoactive medications are also addictive substances that aggravate underlying nutritional deficiencies. This book is a great contribution to the field of orthomolecular medicine and natural substance abuse treatment. Unfortunately, health care insurance, which insures income for doctors and pharmaceutical business interests rather than your health, does not cover nutritional healing interventions. Those seeking true health must make a personal commitment of resources and willingness to make lifestyle changes rather than expecting a pill or a professional to magically take their problems away.

Manchurian Candidate (Widescreen/Full Screen)
Manchurian Candidate (Widescreen/Full Screen)
DVD ~ Frank Sinatra
Offered by thebookcommunity_ca
Price: CDN$ 12.57

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Classic Thriller, Oct. 7 2003
The Manchurian Candidate, starring Frank Sinatra, Janet Leigh, and Angela Lansbury, is a well-acted film based on the novel about a mind-controlled assassin created to facilitate a political coup. Sinatra is the former army colleague of the man programmed for the deed, and he begins to have nightmares about the experience where his unit was captured in Korea and then brainwashed by Russian & Chinese personnel. Laurence Harvey plays the programmed killer, who is promoted as a war hero (and the other unit members programmed to praise him even though his real personality was unpleasant). Sinatra's character begins to work with military intelligence to uncover the Harvey character's memories and uncover the full plot, which involves the mother of the programmed assassin, played by Lansbury as the wife of a U.S. Senator seeking the Presidential nomination on the heels of his McCarthy-esque tirades against communists in the government. This clever plot unfolds with a smooth pace, and Janet Leigh provides a stylish role as Sinatra's romantic interest as he pursues the main mystery. The DVD has some extra commentary on the film, with Sinatra & the director providing their insights, although there could have been more bonus material and improved picture quality for the DVD transfer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solid Overview Of Research On Fluoride & It's Hazards, Oct. 4 2003
This book reviews the science and salesmanship involved in the fluoride debate, as there is no clear valid evidence of significant benefits from added fluoride consumption, while there are many independent studies showing a variety of potential negative mental & physical effects. This evidence has been available previously in some other texts and online information collections, and is beyond rational refutation. There are, of course, some really insecure people who just can't accept or admit that the government, medical, & dental authorities are spreading lies and contaminating the public water supplies. One reviewer claims that people who denounce fluoridation are opportunists seeking economic profit and getting paid thousands of dollars per event for speaking against fluoridation. To deny one conspiracy, this reviewer has invented his own conspiracy, based on no evidence. If speaking publicly against fluoride were financially lucrative, where are all the wealthy fluoride opponents and anti-fluoride ads? Of course, all the damning evidence about fluoride is in professional journals and government documents for anyone to see. Then again, maybe consuming so much fluoride made that person dumb enough to think fluoride is good and anyone against fluoride isn't - after all, fluoridation has been correlated with diminished IQs.

5.0 out of 5 stars U2's "Achtung Baby" - One of their best!, Sept. 19 2003
This review is from: Achtung Baby (Audio CD)
This is a terrific album from U2, with almost every song being memorable and well crafted. This is an album with lots of poetic, emotional songs, with both introspection and observations about society in general. Most importantly, though, the songs are musically memorable, with both Bono and Edge's guitar singing on tracks like Mysterious Ways, One, Trying To Throw Your Arms Around The World, & Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses. Other excellent tracks include The Fly, Ultraviolet, & So Cruel. Love Is Blindness is an almost somber song, changing the tempo from other songs and contrasting with the grungy industrial feel of the album opening Zoo Station. This album has the energy of the live U2 band, making it perhaps "even better than the real thing," another solid song from Achtung Baby. The song "Acrobot" is an excellent ode to hypocrisy, and that title could also describe Bono's vocal acrobatics when he uses his falsetto on the track "One." This album is possibly U2's best, and highly recommended for anyone interested in hearing modern rock music's best talent.

4.0 out of 5 stars U2 returns with a soulful look at the world, quality songs, Sept. 19 2003
In this release from Irish rock superstars U2, Bono's voice is not what it once was, but U2's musical textures and Bono's songwriting skills have not been left behind. The popular single Beautiful Day starts the album, and other tuneful tracks include In A Little While, Walk On, & Stuck In A Moment. The album is oddly prescient of the September 11 events of 2001, and Bono has tunes such as New York, New York, Peace On Earth, & When I Look At The World. While much popular music is formulaic and insipid, U2 continues to be poetic and thoughtful while crafting memorable songs. This album is an excellent addition to rock/pop music collections and a must for U2 fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark Thriller Of Dissociation Is Riveting To The End, Sept. 18 2003
This movie, starring John Cussack, takes place mostly within the mind of a character who is an accused killer. This is not evident in the film until there is a switch in scene to the criminal defendant and his legal and psychiatric team. This makes the film intriguing, and sets the stage for the search for the true killer within the personality "alters" of the main drama. This leads to a surprise ending, which may not be too surprising to those familiar with real life multiple personality and dissociative identity cases and mind control programming. This film has a solid plot and convincing performances, and should be a delight for those who are bored by happy endings.
