“.. Nuclear Power Revealed

So let me tell you what else they did. They just showed you what's wrong with nuclear power. "Safe to the maximum," they said. "Our devices are strong and cannot fail." But they did. They are no match for Gaia.

It seems that for more than 20 years, every single time we sit in the chair and speak of electric power, we tell you that hundreds of thousands of tons of push/pull energy on a regular schedule is available to you. It is moon-driven, forever. It can make all of the electricity for all of the cities on your planet, no matter how much you use. There's no environmental impact at all. Use the power of the tides, the oceans, the waves in clever ways. Use them in a bigger way than any designer has ever put together yet, to power your cities. The largest cities on your planet are on the coasts, and that's where the power source is. Hydro is the answer. It's not dangerous. You've ignored it because it seems harder to engineer and it's not in a controlled environment. Yet, you've chosen to build one of the most complex and dangerous steam engines on Earth - nuclear power.

We also have indicated that all you have to do is dig down deep enough and the planet will give you heat. It's right below the surface, not too far away all the time. You'll have a Gaia steam engine that way, too. There's no danger at all and you don't have to dig that far. All you have to do is heat fluid, and there are some fluids that boil far faster than water. So we say it again and again. Maybe this will show you what's wrong with what you've been doing, and this will turn the attitudes of your science to create something so beautiful and so powerful for your grandchildren. Why do you think you were given the moon? Now you know.

This benevolent Universe gave you an astral body that allows the waters in your ocean to push and pull and push on the most regular schedule of anything you know of. Yet there you sit enjoying just looking at it instead of using it. It could be enormous, free energy forever, ready to be converted when you design the methods of capturing it. It's time. …”

Buddha Bar under spotlight for two issues

Triwik Kurniasari, THE JAKARTA POST, JAKARTA | Tue, 03/03/2009 1:47 PM 


The city tourism and culture agency denied allegations it had distorted the Old Immigration Office building currently home to the Buddha Bar, insisting the building remained a historical public place.


Arie Budhiman, the agency's head, said that as of today, the building still belonged to the city administration.


"It used to be a neglected building until the administration decided to restore it a couple of years ago. Because of our limited budget, we decided to team up with the private sector to support the project," Arie told The Jakarta Post on Monday.


"It *the Buddha Bar* is open to the public. Everybody can enter the building since it is a restaurant-cum-art gallery," he said.


Lin Che Wei, founder of Independent Research and Advisory Indonesia, and architect and urban planner Marco Kusumawijaya, wrote a column recently criticizing the public-private partnership deal used to fund the old building's redevelopment. They pointed out that although the restoration used public money, the use of the building was limited to affluent people who could afford to hang out at the upmarket bar.


The Buddha Bar building used to be the Old Immigration Office building, which was originally set up as a center for the arts and hosted opera performances.


Buddha Bar is now run by the daughter of former governor Sutiyoso who initially approved the purchase and renovations.


Although Lin said he was happy that the building was being preserved for future generations, he was pained to see the general public lose access to one of Jakarta's historical buildings.


Lin and Marco said old heritage buildings should remain public spaces that belonged to all citizens.


In 2005, the administration led by former head of culture and museum agency Aurora Tambunan, promised the agency would work with private management to transform the building into a "unique venue" where all Jakartans could partake in all sorts of activities.


The Jakarta administration spent Rp 28 billion in 2002 to repurchase the old building and poured an additional Rp 6.1 billion into restoring it in 2005.


"We gave the bar management permission to turn the place into Buddha Bar because they were willing to help us restore the building," Arie said.


Buddha Bar has also attracted complaints from Buddhists in Jakarta who are angry the bar was named after the sacred "Buddha".


A group called the Anti Buddha Bar Forum has asked the administration to urge Buddha Bar management, PT Nereta, to change the bar's name.


Deputy Governor Prijanto said the administration would hold a meeting shortly between the forum and PT Nereta to solve the problem.


Budiman Sudharma, head of the Young Generation of Indonesia Mahayana (DPP GMMI) has asked all Buddhists to remain calm over this issue.


"We have yet to decide whether the name and symbols used in the bar are against the law. We are still discussing it. If it is proven wrong, we will file a protest," said Budiman as quoted by
