“In spite of language, in spite of intelligence and intuition and sympathy, one can never really communicate anything to anybody. The essential substance of every thought and feeling remains incommunicable, locked up in the impenetrable strong-room of the individual soul and body. Our life is a sentence of perpetual solitary confinement.” ― Aldous Huxley

During Mahabharat, Barbarik, the son of Ghatotkach, strolled into the Mahabharat war.  He came with just three arrows.  He had powers that very few had.

Before the war, when Krishna had asked the greatest warriors on both sides as to how much time they need to win the war, the answers were quite similar.

Bhisma replied it would take him 20 days. Dronacharya said he would take 25 days. Karna said it would take him 24 days and Arjuna said it would take him 28 days. (Source)

This new warrior, Bheem’s grandson, however, had a revolutionary answer.

One Minute.

He needed only one minute.


He was asked.

With one arrow, he would mark those he wanted to kill.  With the other, those he wanted to save.  And with the third, he would kill all who had been marked to kill.

His only condition - he will fight from the side which was weaker and losing.

Subsequently, Krishna tests him, where he shows his extremely remarkable skills and on realizing the tremendous danger he could pose for the Dharmic side, Krishna tricks him to kill himself.

This story has a lesson.

Even the most competent and fierce fighters with the greatest of weapons cannot do what one man with a weapon that can target a specific group and individuals with one deadly and potent weapon can.

Warriors like Bheeshm, Arjun, Karna, and Drona with all their mastery, skills, and power were nowhere near one man - Barbarik.

One, who could specifically target his enemy.

That is the power of a weapon that kills by tagging specific individuals.  What the world would need in the face of such weapons, if they are mobilized and used, is nothing short of extreme trickery.

targeting ethnicities with bio-weapons via genetic engineering

In 2004, the British Medical Association (BMA) came out with a report titled “Biotechnology, Weapons and Humanity II.”  In that report, the BMA warned about genetically engineered bio-weapons that could target specific ethnic groups.

Such "genetic bombs" could contain anthrax or bubonic plague tailored to activate only when genes indicated the infected person was from a particular group. (Source)

But last year the Cambridge University research went even deeper.  They said that the unscrupulously created bio-weapons could target specific individuals even within an ethnic group.

Biological weapons could be built which target individuals in a specific ethnic group based on their DNA, a report by the University of Cambridge has warned. Researchers from Cambridge’s Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) said the government was failing to prepare for ‘human-driven catastrophic risks’ that could lead to mass harm and societal collapse. (Source)

And, this technology and sophistication of science have become cheaper, more widely available, and complex.

What would those who want to target specific ethnic groups or even individuals within that ethnic group need?   A humongous and deep bank of genetic mapping information.

“In a particularly bad case, a bio-weapon could be built to target a specific ethnic group based on its genomic profile.” (Source)

Which force with dark designs for the world do you think is working on creating just such a database?

Here is a hint.

Chinese state media first reported the government’s intention to construct a national forensic DNA database in 2017. But a report released on 17 June compiled by the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI), a think tank in Canberra, reveals the scale, and key details, of the operation for the first time: for several years, police have been collecting DNA from men and school-aged boys across the country. They aim to collect and store genetic profiles of roughly 10% of the country’s male population — as many as 70 million people, according to the report. The report estimates that those DNA profiles can be used to construct genetic links to China’s entire male population, roughly 700 million people. (Source)

70-80 million DNA samples that can provide profiles for 700 million!

BGI Group - Beijing Genomics Institute, a genetics-based pharmaceutical company has been involved in building the gene pool in Xinjiang to create a “genetics-based surveillance” of the ethnic Uighurs.

BGI has engaged in gene sequencing of Xinjiang residents and has announced it would build a gene bank and a "judicial collaboration" center in Xinjiang, Axios has found, a region where authorities are seeking to build up genetics-based surveillance capabilities targeting ethnic minorities. (Source)

But those are for the population within China.  How does that impact the non-Chinese?

Well, BGI Group was involved in the very ambitious Human Genome Project.

The International Thousand Human Genome Project was launched in January 2008 by an international research committee and is jointly undertaken by scientists from China, the United States and Germany to provide the most detailed map of human genetic variation and to advance genomics in the field of diseases and health applications. (Source)

And, it has made inroads into the populations of different regions.

In Australia, for example, they set up a lab to do genome sequencing to ostensibly collect samples for creating the coronavirus vaccine.

BGI – Beijing Genomics Institute - has grown into one of the world’s largest genomics companies in the two decades since it worked on the Human Genome Project. It has one lab in Australia and had been seeking to expand its genome sequencing services. (Source)

Using the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse, the Chinese company has worked its way to the genetic pool of many countries.

While the U.S. struggled to come up with enough tests to manage the world’s largest coronavirus outbreak, a Chinese genetics company took less than a month to build testing centers thousands of miles away in the Middle East.

By moving swiftly, Shenzhen-based BGI Group won hundreds of millions of dollars in contracts with traditional U.S. allies including Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia. Now the U.S. is warning those countries that they may be giving Beijing access to highly prized personal data that will propel economies of the future.  The push against the adoption of Chinese testing technology is part of a wider row between the U.S. and China that’s complicated global efforts to mount a response to the pandemic. (Source)

Not just these, also the Chinese vassal state - Pakistan has been coopted.

With this, Prof. Atta-ur-Rahman became the first Muslim, first Pakistani and the third individual in the world to have his genome mapped with revealed identity. This project has been jointly accomplished by Dr. Panjwani Center for Molecular Medicine and Drug Research (PCMD) of ICCBS – Pakistan, and Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) – China. (Source)

So the Chinese are going after the genetic pool of people in different countries - Australia, Saudi Arabia, UAE (Arabs), Israelis, and even Pakistan.  They don’t have to do that for India because the genome sequencing for Pakistanis will mimic that of the Indians as well.

Same company.  Same excuse.  Same objectives.  And all sorts of red flags being thrown around by the intelligence and medical experts in the US and UK.

The normal legal, albeit deceptive, ways are not the only way the Chinese are targeting the information of the populations.  They may also be involved in hacking their way to that data.  In not analyzed news, some Chinese hackers hacked into the Anthem servers.

A federal grand jury has indicted two members of "extremely sophisticated" hacking group operating from China in the 2014-2015 theft of the personal information of nearly 79 million customers of insurer Anthem Inc., the biggest known health care hack in U.S. history. (Source)

What is scary is that this theft was understood to be for what it was - not by the private hackers to be sold on the dark web, but for “state-sponsored espionage.”

Alex Holden, founder and chief information security officer of the cybersecurity firm Hold Security, said there is no credible evidence any of the stolen data was ever put up for sale for use in identity theft. He said the Anthem data would be much more potent "on a state-sponsored level" for purposes of espionage than it would be in private hands. (Source)

So, what were the state-sponsored Chinese hackers doing stealing Anthem’s insured?

Fattening the genome database!

Those who know what we are dealing with have been discussing this threat since the 1990s.

In 1997, U.S. Secretary of DefenseWilliam Cohen referred to the concept as a possible risk. In 1998 some biological weapon experts considered such a "genetic weapon" a plausible possibility, and believed the former Soviet Union had undertaken some research on the influence of various substances on human genes.  The possibility of a "genetic bomb" is presented in Vincent Sarich's and Frank Miele's book, Race: The Reality of Human Differences, published in 2004. The authors believe that information from the Human Genome Project will be used in just such a manner.  In 2005 the official view of the International Committee of the Red Cross was "The potential to target a particular ethnic group with a biological agent is probably not far off. These scenarios are not the product of the ICRC's imagination but have either occurred or been identified by countless independent and governmental experts." (Source)

In a 1942 novel, titled Sixth Column, which was later republished as “The Day after Tomorrow,” Robert Heinlein had written about “race-specific radiation weapon is used against a so-called "Pan-Asian" invader.”

India needs to be ready and prepared for that could target only certain ethnicities in the world or even specific groups within India.

how fanatic ideologies throttle millennia-old cultures

Indonesia and Malaysia are tropical islands.  This environment requires certain clothing for a comfortable living.

Until the early 1900s, women in Indonesia and Malaysia would dress like this.  Irrespective of the religion.  Then the Salafi Imams took over and Arabized the whole culture.  The women were made to go into veils and covered clothing.  What was normal and comfortable for women suddenly became ‘revealing and degrading’ in the eyes of these “believers.”  (Source)

The question one has to ask himself is - Is what is seen the issue or who sees it the main issue?  One whose mind is in his pants, for him every woman is a sex object.  For another, she could be seen as a sister or a mother or a child.  That is humanity.  Former is a sick society of constipated psychopaths.

China villages between India and Bhutan: Satellite imagery has emerged of China setting up villages in hitherto uninhabited stretches on its disputed borders with India and Bhutan, particularly in Arunachal Pradesh, with experts saying the move could be aimed at buttressing Beijing’s territorial claims (Source)

Khalistanis targeting Indian High Commission: The Indian High Commission in London reached out to UK Foreign and home office after a large group of protestors began protesting in front of the mission, defying COVID-19 protocols and carrying Khalistani flags. The gathering of 3500-4000 people, violated the rule of only 30 protestors due to the COVID-19 pandemic and around 700 vehicles had participated at the rally, even though permission was sought only for 40 due to the pandemic.

Chinese using tech to launder money: Still, U.S. law enforcement officials told Reuters that Chinese "money brokers" such as Gan represent one of the most worrisome new threats in their war on drugs. They say small cells of Chinese criminals have upended the way narcotics cash is laundered and are displacing the Mexican and Colombian money men that have long dominated the trade.  Virtually unheard of a decade ago, these Chinese players are moving vast sums quickly and quietly, authorities said. Their expertise: routing cartel drug profits from the United States to China then on to Mexico with a few clicks of a burner phone and Chinese banking apps – and without the bulky cash ever crossing borders.

the secret reason for the amazing Castrati voice

It was very common in different cultures to shape/structure a certain part of a person to either enhance a particular skill or satisfy a beauty fetish.  The Chinese practice of “footbinding” was one such practice. (Source)

In Europe, for example, a certain practice was followed to “prepare better opera singers.”  Prior to puberty, both the boys and girls have the same vocal range.  However, post-puberty, the boys’ voices drop in octaves as the male voice becomes deeper.  The girls retain their vocal range for the most part.  So, in Europe, they would castrate boys before they reached puberty to retain their prepubescent vocal range.

These singers were known as Castrati.  A Castrato (singular), would be given intense voice training.  With a combination of retaining the earlier vocal range and training, they would create a powerful voice range with a great amount of fluidity.

What you got was a singer with the voice of a child and the breathing ability of an adult, since their lungs would develop normally.

Castrati were extremely popular in the 18th century. They were very popular among Italian operas, as they had the ability to execute extremely difficult vocal passages. In fact, the majority of 18th century male opera singers were castrati, as the practice was widespread and acceptable.  (Source)

Here is one Castrato - the only one recorded for posterity.  Quite incredible!
