Chapter 7: Notes
We are analog beings trapped in a digital world, and the worst part is, we did it to ourselves.
We humans are biological animals. We have evolved over millions of years to function well in the environment, to survive. We are analog devices following biological modes of operation. We are compliant, flexible, tolerant. Yet we people have constructed a world of machines that requires us to be rigid, fixed, intolerant. We have devised a technology that requires considerable care and attention, that demands it be treated on its own terms, not on ours. We live in a technology-centered world where the technology is not appropriate for people. No wonder we have such difficulties.
Here we are, wandering about the world, bumping into things, forgetful of details, with a poor sense of time, a poor memory for facts and figures, unable to keep attention on a topic for more than a short duration, reasoning by example rather than by logic, and drawing upon our admittedly deficient memories of prior experience. When viewed this way, we seem rather pitiful. No wonder that we have constructed a set of artificial devices that are very much not in our own image. We have constructed a world of machinery in which accuracy and precision matter. Time matters. Names, dates, facts, and figures matter. Accurate memory matters. Details matter.
All the things we are bad at matter, all the things we are good at are ignored. Bizarre.
All things seem to consist of vibrations expressed by waves, whether being gas,liquid,or solid. These waves all seem to behave within the laws of the octave and can influence other waves by sympathetic vibration, thus the senses that exist in all lifeforms, like in plants. The Mimosa or sensitive plant, for example would be a classic example. Our hearing, sight, touch, and any kind of extrasensory perception reflects this.
All of our thought processes seem to function in an analog fashion,so converting these processes to digital, in my opinion could only be useful as a tool. The actual perceptions have to be analog to process the vibes, and digital machines might someday come close, but never match a perfect harmony within a wavelenghth by sympathetic vibration. Just speculating, but it seems logical that maybe somewhere in time and space is a computer based on the octave that operates by sympathetic vibrations,actual wavelengths, and frequencies.

The conditions for release of the First Edition remain as previously stated. There is not to be any profit motive associated with the release of this documentary. This documentary is made available to the public under the following conditions:
1. The documentary may be copied in its entirety and freely distributed.
2. No individual may distribute the documentary with a profit motive.
3. Any one who assists with distribution is entitled to reasonable compensation of expenses for reproduction, packaging and shipping of the documentary.
This documentary produced by chemtrail researcher Clifford Carnicom is a must see and an excellent research tool. Five plus years into the operations has provided ample evidence in this 90min DVD that covers many topics. Over the years aerosol/chemtrail research has provided some leads but even more questions as to who and why the spraying occurs. It is clear jets are deliberately spraying the sky's and it will not stop until enough people are aware and willing to stand up for the operations exposure and termination.

Two Seconds That Will Live in Infamy
by Dwain Deets
WTC Building 7 Collapses in 6.5 seconds
The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST), the government agency responsible for investigating and reporting on the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7, tried to avoid admitting that there was any free-fall acceleration when the building came down on September 11, 2001. All the way to their draft final report on August 26, 2008, nearly seven years after the event, the NIST report’s lead authors held firmly to their position that free-fall did not occur.
Once NIST received comments on its draft report, it was more or less forced to accept the indisputable facts based on the publicly available videos proving that free-fall had occurred. David Chandler, a high school physics teacher and AE911Truth researcher, provided the most compelling argument in a video seen widely on YouTube, "The Free-fall Acceleration of Bldg 7 ."
In their final report, issued November 20, 2008, the NIST report’s authors stated they had made a more detailed examination, and found a 2.25-second period in which the center roofline exhibited a “free-fall drop for approximately 8 stories.” Chandler had measured a 2.5-second period.
The NIST report did not state the significance of a free-fall drop. The significance is that during that period of free-fall, all of the gravitational energy (also known as potential energy) is being converted into energy of motion (also known as kinetic energy). There is no energy available for doing other work, such as breaking up structural columns, or causing structural pieces to be hurled out of the way. The graphic chart is an illustration depicting these points.
8 stories free fall drop
NIST tried to hide its admission of free-fall from public view by not listing it in the description of the changes it made in response to public comments. Admitting to free-fall leads directly to the question, What source of energy eliminated the 8 stories of heavy, interlocked structural steel? The NIST report’s authors didn�t explain. They tried to hide this dramatic change of position, that WTC7 did display a period of free-fall. However, gravitational forces alone can’t come close to explaining that.
The simple figure above, where section A had to have been instantaneously removed in order for the section above (B) to exhibit a free-fall drop, is suggested as an aid in explaining the NIST-free-fall issue to non-technical people. First on the list are all U.S. Senators. Two matters of Senate business are candidates for addressing this issue. One is the confirmation hearings of the head of NIST, who serves under the Secretary of Commerce. The other is the proposed Truth and Reconciliation Commission advocated by Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy.
In the words of the title, “Two Seconds that Will Live in Infamy,” the assertive attitude corresponds to a positive expectation towards President Obama’s promise to “reestablish transparency and openness in government.” The processes are in place to re-open NIST’s assessments of the WTC’s destruction. If this promise is actually fulfilled, then the chances are very good these two seconds will indeed live in infamy.
The building was constructed above a Con Edison substation that had been on the site since 1967. The substation had a caisson foundation designed to carry the weight of a future building of 25 stories containing 600,000 sq ft (55,700 m²). The final design for 7 World Trade Center was for a much larger building covering a larger footprint than originally planned when the substation was built. The structural design of 7 World Trade Center included features to allow a larger building than originally planned to be constructed. A system of gravity column transfer trusses and girders was located between floors 5 and 7 to transfer loads to the smaller foundation. Existing caissons installed in 1967 were used, along with new ones, to accommodate the building. The fifth floor functioned as a structural diaphragm, providing lateral stability and distribution of loads between the new and old caissons. Above the seventh floor, the building's structure was a typical tube-frame design, with columns in the core and on the perimeter, and lateral loads resisted by perimeter moment frames.

7 World Trade Center was a 47-story building, designed by Emery Roth & Sons, with a red granite façade. The building was 610 feet (186 m) tall, with a trapezoidal footprint that was 330 ft (101 m) long and 140 ft (43 m) wide. Tishman Realty & Construction managed construction of the building, which began in 1983. In March 1987, the building opened, becoming the seventh structure of the World Trade Center. The building was constructed above a Con Edison substation that had been on the site since 1967. The substation had a caisson foundation designed to carry the weight of a future building of 25 stories containing 600,000 sq ft (55,700 m²).

The last part of this video shows, in slow motion, more detail of the column of windows that were blown out during the collapse and also some debris being thrown upward from above where the windows were, along with some bright flashes that look like small explosions. Hmm...?
See Barry Jennings testimony of an explosion where the stairway was destroyed when he was descending from the sixth floor.
