(Nova Biscotti Update April 9, 2016: This website is going to be undergoing a dramatic overhaul over the coming weeks and months. The changes are going to be aligning this website with a new mission and purpose – developing communication strategies, tools, and downloadable reference PDFs which can be shared with corporate executives, Chambers of Commerce (National/State/Local), utility providers, small business owners, and non-profit civic leaders for the express purpose of keeping the distribution system running during the time of the EVENT i.e. the period where the electronic financial system has been shut down so it can be rebooted.
This will also include practical tools such as utilizing neighborhood watch groups via existing organizations such as the non-profit supporting “National Night Out” in the US: https://natw.org/ . All of these tools and resources will be necessary in order to maintain some semblance of public order during the critical initial 72 hours of the EVENT. I have received important guidance over the last month that after the first three days, things will be able to calm down quite rapidly… but the key is to maintain civility such that mass panic, riots, and vigilante behavior does not disrupt the peace. This can and will be successful, but the more quickly tools and resources can be created and disseminated to a mass audience, the faster the EVENT will occur which will ultimately free us all from Spiritual & Financial Tyranny. Please keep coming back regularly to this website as updates occur, and email me email@example.com if you have specific ideas which you think would be helpful.)
Hello, Earth Family – this is a new website being started to assist in bringing some of the concepts surrounding what many of us understand to be ‘The Event’ to a broader and slightly more skeptical audience.
This is not intended to necessarily be a news-oriented website; while there will be references to current events, in many ways they will be presented in a historical context. This is because there will be many people guided personally and via social media to this website by the creators of this website conceptually. This fact alone will mean a few thousand new people will be coming here for the first time just in the first hours after the Event starts.
This is the first substantial website-building gig for us both, and we intend to improve every step of the way – always refining, always tweaking to reach more and improve the website. We don’t know how long it will be until the Event, but we do know as many people need to be reached as possible in some manner prior to the Event.
Given the desire to be relevant and useful for a broad audience, a lot of what we’ll be presenting will be in terms of practical ideas which will be useful at the time of the Event. These will not be all warm & fuzzy, but every once in a while there may be a blog post with something light!
I am hoping to reach others who are determined to encourage at least a few others to start conceptualizing the idea of drastic, tumultuous, yet positive change. For those of us who have been following Cobra from his blog’s beginning in Spring 2012, many of these ideas are so entrenched in our brains that it is sometimes difficult to conceive of being a person who does not know what is going on. It is hard for us to get into that mindset again, so I’m asking those reading this pre-Event to take a step back from their current belief system and go back to that time when they were still more or less mainstream belief-wise.
I know many people who would be upset to be called ‘mainstream’, but being part of a quirky subculture does even not remotely qualify one to join this club. You have to be someone who has crossed the Rubicon of belief; you’ve become part of the what I call the TinFoil Hat Guild. I use that because hope all readers will clearly understand what I’m getting at even if they’d prefer a different term. I know from experience that many in the ‘unconvinced’ audience get offended when the term ‘asleep’ gets thrown at them – so I’ve decided to define the distinction differently. Think about it – we need to get as many people thinking about what is happening and what will transpire as possible, so why do we want to alienate the people we are soliciting as allies?
We need to think about others – those who believe we are completely crazy or gullible – and begin to assess the best ways to educate them quickly without being condescending. While we may be successful in getting a few people to join us before the Event, the vast majority of the people we will influence about the Event will be when it is actually happening – not beforehand. Hence, we have to develop an understanding of our own journeys across the threshold, and realize that the vast majority of people will be experiencing this process in a very accelerated manner compared to our varied experiences.
Ask yourself this question:
“If you could tell everyone you have ever known during your entire life just what is going on and why, what would you say to them?”
If simpler approach is preferable, ask yourself this instead:
“What is it that people will need to know and need to think about?”
There will undoubtedly be a substantial amount of reassuring and explaining involved initially, as it there will likely be a high initial level of emotional distress. Now combine that with the fact that most people are not going to have more than 3 days worth of critical supplies. This means we need to find as many creative and ethical ways to get critical supplies to people who need them as quickly as possible.
The good news is this: When the people band together and work with their neighbors, any group of people or community can successfully deal with this. Personally, my belief is that the biggest issue is going to be keeping the peace within urban areas around the world. But there are distinct issues which will arise in any setting or country; to the extent any of you out there have ideas to address these issues during the Event, please send your ideas. We welcome contributions to build out a legitimate reference website. This includes donations to assist in paying for regular website costs, but most important of all is getting ideas from readers – especially in the form of ready-to-publish submissions for articles, posts, or even entire pages (depending on purpose).
In the greater scheme of things, this isn’t a big deal – humanity will get through this easily enough.
It “isn’t” the end of the world!
It’s the beginning of a new one.
