Hold on to your seats, because this one blew my mind when I first read it after Mr. V.T., a regular reader here, shared it. Now, I realize the story is somewhat dated, but please bear with me, as I've had to pre-schedule the last two weeks, and this weeks', worth of blogs all at once (hence I'm actually composing this blog on Oct 27, even though you're only seeing it on Nov 12). But late date or not, this is an important story simply for its contents alone. The United States Air Force, it seems, has admitted that DARPA ran many tests on its now mothballed HIgh Altitude Auroral Research Project (HAARP) at the famous (or depending on one's lights, infamous) Gakona, Alaska facility:
Note the zinger at the end of this article:
"While HAARP and weather control has been called a conspiracy theory by the mainstream media and government officials, during a Senate hearing on Wednesday, David Walker, deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force for science, technology and engineering, dropped a bombshell in answer to a question asked by Lisa Murkowski in relation to the dismantling of the $300 million High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program in Gakona this summer.
"Walker said this is 'not an area that we have any need for in the future' and it would not be a good use of Air Force research funds to keep HAARP going. 'We’re moving on to other ways of managing the ionosphere, which the HAARP was really designed to do,” he said. “To inject energy into the ionosphere to be able to actually control it. But that work has been completed.'"(Emphases added)
Oh really!? "Other ways to manage the ionosphere" of the entire planet?
As I put it in my talk at the San Mateo Space Conference last June, shutting down HAARP means "they have something better now," and now Mr. Walker has confirmed my suspicion. So what might that be? and more importantly, why develop such a capability?
So herewith my high octane speculation of the day... As I pointed out in my San Mateo talks, the ionosphere is a planetary system, and "managing" it implies the ability to manipulate systems of a planetary scale (that's Kardashev Class One capability, in the "Farrell Corollaries" model), systems like the weather. Interestingly enough, weather systems are also linked to stellar effects from the Sun, and as I put it in San Mateo, it is just remotely conceivable that by manipulating the ionosphere, which plays its own unique role in the Earth's magnetosphere, one might be able to manipulate, or "manage" to use Mr. Walker's bland term, effects in the Sun via some resonance-coupled oscillator effect, which in effect would be a Kardashev Class Two capability (in the "Farrell Corollaries" once again).
Yet another possibility is that via their experiments with HAARP, they may have also discovered terrestrial or geodetic means of "managing" the ionosphere via induction of standing EM wave effects throughout the planetary core, modifying the Earth's magnetic field, which would also produce ionospheric effects.
Time alone, of course, will tell, but ultimately the "other ways of managing the ionosphere" will eventually be revealed, if, of course, we don't end up blowing up the Sun, or destabilizing the core of the Earth ala the movie Core, and have to "fix" it by detonating hydrogen bombs in the core.
Just a few thoughts for the day...
See you on the flip side...
