Prior to the Secret Space Program conference, Mr. Henrik Palmgren of Red Ice Creations radio interviewed me about the conference and other space matters, and one of the things we both talked about during that interview, was the prediction of an increase in indicators of international efforts in space. No sooner said than done, as at the end of May, the Austrian Times announced that an unusual player, one that does not normally talk in the same breath about manned missions to Mars and international efforts, has announced that it would like to be a participant in precisely such an effort:

Japan Eyeing Manned Mission to Mars, Seeking International Participation

I'll go way out on a limb here, because I suspect there's a deeply hidden agenda here on the part of Tokyo, which has seen its standing as the world's third largest economy recently been overtaken by India. The nation has also, as most are aware, been decimated by the Fukushima tragedy, and some in Japan suspect there is something very abnormal about that disaster, and they're casting their suspicions in Washington's direction. Prior to that disaster, you'll recall, there were some truly seismic political events in Japan, which brought in a new government, which appeared to be ready to try to reach out to Beijing and attempt to mend fences and ill-will between the two Asian powerhouses left over from World War Two. The new Japanese government was also strongly but politely asking Washington to close down the base on Okinawa. You'll recall that in response to this request(and probably in response to the wider context of looming rapprochement with Beijing) then US Defense Secretary Robert Gates issued to Japan a statement that amounted to little more than a direct threat that if Tokyo pressed the issue, it would regret it. Washington was not about to allow its Japanese satrapy to start thinking for itself. Who do they think they are? DeGaulle?

Then Fukushima happened.

Now, Shinzo Abe has happened, and his noises about Japanese re-militarization are understandably not too popular in Taipei, Beijing, Manilla, or New Delhi.

I suspect, however, there's a segment of interests in Japan that still maintains some hope for a saner course, which appeared to be underway prior to Mr. Gates' threats and Fukushima.

Enter space once again. Japan has sent out the smoke signals about an international mission to Mars. Normally, this would be a way to get the Europeans and NASA on the bandwagon. But so far, there are no big puffs of smoke from London or Paris or Berlin. Certainly not from Washington, which is showing all the signs of not being able to read any smoke signals any more, even if its own geopolitical house appears to be on fire. But what if the real target of the signals were New Delhi? Beijing? Moscow? A nice way to bury that World War Two hatchet: to have a Russian, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese crew as the first humans on Mars?

In other words, I suspect this is a feeler, folks, a tentative exploratory balloon. If any of those BRICSA nations answers the smoke signal, then we might be watching the beginning of yet another bizarre space chapter, with, of course, some geopolitical nations, for if Washington protests such a cooperation, or insists on running it, it will be obvious to all, especially the Japanese electorate, that American unipolarism is not serving their country very well.

See you on the flip side.

    btw, there’s a 150 miles per hour typhoon (almost category 5) now in Japan..

    It’s not the money it’s the technology the end game of the Norman-Virginians is to drive the world to a post Roman Empire existence. The Japanese better hope that the Russo-Sino-Hindu alliance they merging with can pull this off or it’s death world for those of us unfortunate to survive. I use the Norman because since ten sixty six the Anglo-Saxon-Jutes have not been masters of their fate. I use Virginian because that was the name the rulers of Britain gave to the North-American lands they lay claim too.

    Have you seen this article?


    With this new model, Tegmark says that consciousness can be described in terms of quantum mechanics and information theory, allowing us to scientifically tackle murky topics such as self awareness, and why we perceive the world in classical three-dimensional terms, rather than the infinite number of objective realities offered up by the many-worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics.

      Postulates “perceptronium”. Wouldn’t it have been simpler just to go back to “ether”?

    Why Mars you may ask, space exploration is the “in thing” these days and after some 50 years of talking about it, now someone is getting serious about it. BUT these ideas are all wind if one cannot find the mulla to fund it. Secret hidden system of finance by the breakaway civilization has to be “exposed”, or otherwise the whole idea of getting out there ain’t gunna happen. So what we have here is a simple “wish list”, and it will stay that way until somebody opens the till $$$$$.

    I find it means a lot of things, depending on what level of influence you look at. There are at least 20 levels of influence. When we are talking cosmic level of influence we are talking the ego driven need to extend dominance into space and to un-distort the awareness about our universe. When we are talking cosmic secret military level of influence, we are talking about militarization and de-militarization of space. On the other hand, when we are talking national political level of influence, we are talking the sponsoring of space activities for white world science and national military dominance. Given that there are at least 20 levels of influence, you truly get a lot of meaning behind each news. It is nonetheless interesting. Thanks Joseph!

    “…a Russian, Indian, Chinese, and Japanese crew as the first humans on Mars?”

    Joseph, you’ve just returned from the Secret Space Program Conference… How then can you write “first humans” on Mars?

    Just kidding, but only slightly 😉

    If in fact the American PsTB were responsible for Fukushima, any discernible defiance of the U.S. on the part of the Japanese thereafter would seem to be suicidal. (Banzai!)

    Therefore, if this Mars proposal were indeed a not-so-subtle overture to the BRICSA nations, one would assume that the Japanese have reason to believe that within that growing world alliance lies a sort of sanctuary within which even the secret power to lift oceans and split the ground asunder could not penetrate.

    But under whose mighty aegis would that sanctuary actually lie — that of the Russian gods or the Chinese ones? (Interesting how we seem to be coming full-circle back to a world of fearsome, legendary wonders and their revelation through the scandalous intrigues of god-like powers.)

    On a speculative side note, could it be that this emerging and metastasizing ISIS Sunni state, which stands now bristling at the western border of a predominantly Shi’a Iran, represents an American-engineered payoff to the Saudis for their continued support of the petrodollar and for their continued silence over the theft of their London-based gold reserves?


    If so, that’s a heck of a chess piece to push their way. (Bishop? Rook?)

    The US might not be interested as they have their own horse in this race. They’ve just completed a critical design review for a deep space rocket – the first such CDR since 1961.

    I’ll try some far out nitrous oxide speculation here(dental work not withstanding)If the china-russo space program takes off I believe the outer limit beings may favor them with some sort of boosted physics as their socialogical approach to mankind is more universal. Watch western space powers begin to migrate towards this combination in hopes of sharing in the bounty as they peal away from NASA joint projects. I don’t think Nazi or Royal race superiority theories will bode well on the intergalactic net. Hows them apples?

    • sjy1969 on July 7, 2014 at 10:52 am

      “Their socialogical [sic] approach to mankind is more universal”. Maybe I’m a bit slow today but would you mind explaining that one to me?

  10. DanaThomas on July 7, 2014 at 9:03 am

    All of these diplomatic minuets going on: some things never seem to change, Talleyrand would feel quite at home brokering a space program (preferably a secret one!). The old game of Diplomacy (yes I played that too!) will have to be updated with a 3D “board” covering the whole solar system.
