This blog was born out of an understanding of the counter-forces working against life in our times. Not only against human life but against all that lives here on Earth in the four manifest kingdoms of nature. All four kingdoms are in big trouble. I could have chosen to focus on any one of several specific means by which the assault on life is manifesting, but the area which called to me for special focus has been and still is, the effects of radio frequencies, magnetic fields and electrical fields within the electromagnetic spectrum, on the continued viability of all life forms.
Specifically, this blog endeavors to
Bring more of an emphasis on the positive ways and means by which we can mitigate any ill effects of our exposure to electronic digital technology;
Continue to highlight developments which underline the growing world-wide general health concerns – especially of 5G;
Expose the various reported incidents of damage to human health and that of other life forms which can be likely linked to 5G and other mobile data networks;
Draw attention to any viable social action that you could be part of that might positively change any potentially dangerous use of digital technology such as 5G;
Give useful information regarding maintaining soul-spiritual health in a technological culture … etc.
Where possible and appropriate, inspiration and knowledge, as in the past, will be to some extent drawn from Dr Rudolf Steiner’s lectures and writings. If you have a comment or question please contact me by email or by the comment facility on this site.

Waiheke Local Board chairwoman Cath Handley has written to Auckland Council’s environment and community committee calling for an independent safety assessment of the fifth-generation service.
“The board’s request is that a precautionary approach should be adopted until evidence of effects is fully documented and well understood,’ she wrote.
“As the largest and most densely populated city in the country, Auckland should take a leadership role in ensuring the safety of the proposed network.”
Mobile company Spark plans to roll out 5G across the country in mid-2020.
University of Auckland psychology professor Susan Pockett said radio frequency emissions were linked to many health problems.
“Approximately 600 peer-reviewed research reports from a range of international scientists show us that radio frequency radiation is linked to infertility, diabetes, various kinds of cancer and psychiatric disorders,” she said.
“The present situation is already bad and adding 5G on top of it will hugely increase the amount of radiation to which everyone is exposed and make the whole situation much worse.”
A 2018 article by Pockett in the New Zealand Medical Journal said evidence existed that radio frequency emissions at some intensities could impact people’s health.
“The biological effects of radio frequency emissions are clearly complicated, but there is no longer any reasonable doubt that under some circumstances, levels common in the present environment do have harmful biological effects.”
The paper concluded until more was known about the effects, a “precautionary approach” in the rollout of cellphone and WiFi technology was justified.
Overseas, more than 200 scientists have written to the United Nations and the World Health Organization expressing concerns about potential health risks from the technology.
Minister for Broadcasting, Communications and Digital Media Kris Faafoi said he had not received any advice suggesting a link between adverse health effects and exposure levels associated with radio communications.
“On that basis, the government will continue the roll out of the 5G network next year as planned,” he said.
“We are on track and keeping pace with other countries with the spectrum being progressively allocated, companies can start rolling out 5G from 2020.”
A Spark spokesperson said overwhelming evidence indicated 5G presented no risk to human health.
“Most scientific opinion shows no clear evidence from the thousands of scientific studies undertaken to date that mobile phones or base stations present risks to human health,” he said.
“Spark will continue to test and comply with all national and international safety limits and always ensure we incorporate substantial safety margins.”
However, Pockett said the current guidelines regarding safe levels of radio frequency were flawed.
“The present guidelines for safe levels of exposure assume that the only biological effect of radio frequency is tissue heating. So if it’s not intense enough to actually cook you, the Ministry of Health and the wireless industry are telling us it’s fine,” she said.
“In fact though, there are multiple proven mechanisms by which radio frequency damages all biological organisms, at intensities a tiny fraction of those needed to heat tissue.”
The Ministry of Health monitors overseas research on radio frequency emissions and reports to the director of health every six months.
In 2018, a report concluded that any risk to health was low.
The council’s environment and community chair Penny Hulse said she was seeking information from Faafoi about the government’s response to any health risks.
The following letter contains important links (reports and videos) regarding children and digital technology. The World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared that children under the age of one should be protected from digital screen technology – BUT surely the recommended age should be higher? What do you think?
Dear Friends of ELIANT,
This week the WHO published guidelines declaring that children under the age of one should live a completely screen-free existence.
Throughout the world private schools are increasingly insisting on screen-free lessons and disregarding the trend towards early digitalisation. By doing so they are enabling children to develop independent thinking, social competencies and creativity. Most state schools on the other hand are being kitted out with technology which already in the play group, will force children to learn how to operate digital gadgets. What is particularly concerning is that this development is being driven rapidly forward without any conscious, let alone democratic, decision making process.
ELIANT has therefore responded with a Position paper which maps out the consequences of premature digitalisation (short version). In this position paper you will find:
Links to the results of many independent scientific studies of the neurological, psychological and behavioural effects. These studies reinforce the need for a screen-free and therefore more human focused approach to education throughout Europe.
The key role parents play in screen-free education and the right that parents, teachers and educators should have to choose the kind of education their children need.
The purpose of this position paper is to encourage constructive dialogue between the various interest groups including the state authorities so that all children can be assured optimum health and possibilities for development. The fact sheet stating ELIANT’s position can be downloaded and printed. We would be delighted if you could disseminate it widely among friends, acquaintances and representatives of interest groups. The importance of our petition campaign calling for the right to a screen-free education, will then gain even wider traction – see also our current video.
We thank everyone for their moral and financial support of this important task.
With warm greetings on behalf of the alliance
People are waking up around the world because they are beginning to realize what 5G is really all about. Those who remain asleep to the grave concerns do so because they don’t have the necessary information.
Please spread the word. Knowledge is power.
The following link shows that a momentum has begun. The dominoes are falling. Please read then share widely …
It’s clear that the widespread opposition to 5G is now having an effect. The tide is beginning to turn. The article (link below) offers a ray of hope, but it also shows that at every level of society, wherever we are, we need to be sharing our concerns and what we know about the serious threat to humanity that this technology poses.
So please, in whatever way you can, share information regarding 5G. Share email links that you come across. Bring the subject up at work, amongst friends, with your political ‘representatives’. There are some good brochures online which you can give out as appropriate. Here is a link to a simple flyer that you can download, print and distribute. Good resources and info is available at 5G.org.nz
I have one of these meters and recommended it in an earlier post.
Many people, including family, friends and others, prefer to remain oblivious to what phones and WiFi are actually radiating. When they see the red alarm band on the meter light up – and hear the screechy sound -many get the message immediately. We have to see it to believe it!
I know that several readers have purchased the excellent Cornet Meter. You will get more out of the meter from watching this excellent 15 minute guide video from well-known EMF Educator and Researcher Josh del Sol.
If you don’t have a meter then Josh’s video may well convince you …
Here is an excellent essay from Julian Rose of Global Research. He says: “Yes, everybody wants to be ‘smart’; after all, smart accessories are fun, fashionable and cool, right? But you must first sacrifice your intelligence in order to have ‘fun’ in this toxic playground. In this world, there’s little doubt that you have to be stupid to be smart.”
