This is my first post on the Orgones.uk forum. I began this thread in 2013 on Don Croft’s old forum, at his urging, and have been adding to it without cease since. I moved to a subscription only format shortly after Don passed on.
A week or so ago, I learned that Adam had saved much or most of Don Croft’s old forum, including my “Positive Changes That Are Occurring” and “Rising Female Death Rate” threads. It means the world to me, in that I didn’t save anything I wrote, back then.
The forum was dropped and our webmaster assassinated.
The attached photo is Don and myself when he came to visit me in Pittsburgh in 2016. Cruising around the U.S. with no driver’s license - the man had more balls than a big brass monkey.
Don wrote this in response to one of my “Positive Changes That Are Occurring” posts on his old forum:
"I think Jeff is wise to include the same intro paragraphs at the beginning of each posting because the enemy established this long con by repeating the same erroneous claims and constantly reinforces them with their memes. Maybe it needs to be undone the same way in the record. I think it worked pretty well for them during the years when their weather weaponry was all working and the earth was turning into a desert at an accelerating rate, before orgonite suddenly proliferated in this century’s beginning. Carol and are are still ‘baffled’ that Jeff Miller is the only person on the planet, out of five or so billion souls, who collects and publishes solid, statistical evidence that the tide has turned forcefully against the parasitic world order and their ‘Gaia destruction’ agenda.
Getting my (the ‘old hippie’) generation to accept earth-worship was perhaps their strangest psychological coup. I remember when it suddenly happened in the mid-1970s after a massive, international publicity campaign, then the politicos got on board and on cue. The hippies had run out of steam by then (too many heroin addicts among them?) and after the Vietnam War there were millions of militant pacifists who had nothing to do .
It was similar to the big social challenges that are presented when armies come home after a war. There were even ‘terrorist organizations’ who suddenly started blowing people up, then, in Europe on behalf of ‘Gaia,’, though of course they were just part of Rome’s (London’s) P2 masonic network that had been doing that throughout Europe and even in Turkey since the 1840s. Al Qaeda and ISIS are the CIA’s newer versions. David Livingston has documented all of that in the most thorough way, I think. ~Don"
I’m going to continue with the mailing list, and also post here.
This first post is my 2019 year in review, which I published a couple of weeks ago.

Jeff Miller, Brooklyn, New York, January 13, 2020
(Don Croft and Jeff Miller, Pittsburgh, PA, 2016)
“He is the Napoleon of crime, Watson. He is the organiser of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city. He is a genius, a philosopher, an abstract thinker. He has a brain of the first order. He sits motionless, like a spider in the centre of its web, but that web has a thousand radiations, and he knows well every quiver of each of them. He does little himself. He only plans. But his agents are numerous and splendidly organised. Is there a crime to be done, a paper to be abstracted, we will say, a house to be rifled, a man to be removed–the word is passed to the Professor, the matter is organised and carried out. The agent may be caught. In that case money is found for his bail or his defence. But the central power which uses the agent is never caught–never so much as suspected. This was the organisation which I deduced, Watson, and which I devoted my whole energy to exposing and breaking up.”
Sherlock Holmes, from “ The Final Problem ”, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1893

THE ENGINEERED PLAGUE OF TECHNOLOGY
“Why you fool, it’s the educated reader who CAN be gulled. All our difficulty comes with the others. When did you meet a workman who believes the papers? He takes it for granted that they’re all propaganda and skips the leading articles. He buys his paper for the football results and the little paragraphs about girls falling out of windows and corpses found in Mayfair flats. He is our problem. We have to recondition him. But the educated public, the people who read the high-brow weeklies, don’t need reconditioning. They’re all right already. They’ll believe anything.”
From “ That Hideous Strength ”, by C.S. Lewis, 1945
“But suddenly the Mirror went altogether dark, as dark as if a hole had opened in the world of sight, and Frodo looked into emptiness. In the black abyss there appeared a single Eye that slowly grew, until it filled nearly all the Mirror. So terrible was it that Frodo stood rooted, unable to cry out or to withdraw his gaze. The Eye was rimmed with fire, but was itself glazed, yellow as a cat’s, watchful and intent, and the black slit of its pupil opened on a pit, a window into nothing.”
From “ The Fellowship of the Ring ”, by J.R.R. Tolkien, 1954
“The more data you compile the clearer this will become and I think it’s worth pursuing but just broaching the subject is a pioneering effort.”

There is something which unites magic and applied science while separating both from the “wisdom” of earlier ages. For the wise men of old the cardinal problem had been how to conform the soul to reality, and the solution had been knowledge, self-discipline, and virtue. For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men; the solution is a technique.
