A New World Model

This essay / article contains among the rudest of English language words. If you are easily upset by such langauge, do not read.

“I welcome any channel that... allows us to feel as if we are living in a real world.
I am sick of a media narrative that doesn't match the reality.”

Dear Tap,

A friend said the other day, “I don’t like the company you’re keeping.... I saw your Eyes on that Tap website, they looked great, but I checked some of the other stuff and it was promoting right wing extreme gun ownership, food survivalists, Obama and gay bashing stuff.... I won’t be going there again.”

This friend is years more than I experienced in exploring ‘alternative’ ideas; the friend who, for example, lent me Bruce Lipton’s Biology of Belief. I began to explain gun ownership was a constitutional right in the US where there is widening concern that the government is removing firearms from the people; that Obama does appear to be a Nobel Peace Prize winning war monger and... so, if the BBC website were to publish my thoughts, would I be keeping better company?

Perplexed I enquired further and it seems my friend had accessed The Tap Blog via I explained such sites can be seen as portals that allow freedom of expression from different points of view.

It set me thinking how easily we make judgement over others. Having undertaken my online Quantum Universe workshop at least twice, my holding any belief system is now compromised by the requirement to avoid judgement. The theory of Quantum Universe suggests that what counts is reaction and response to any given moment and doing so from a source of unconditional love. Holding any belief and therefore, dismissing the apparent beliefs of others as incorrect, infers an act of judgement. Quantum Universal theory might be compared similar to the concept of God; love; infinite consciousness and suddenly science is meeting and complimenting the realms of spirituality; the new model of Bruce Lipton, Tom Campbell & co are showing signs of making Richard Dawkins, David Attenborough & co the old and soon to be obsolete model.

“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”
Richard Buckminster Fuller 1895-1983

Sites such as The Tap Blog, Alternative News, Before It’s News, appear to allow a variety of ideas, thoughts and observations to flow through, giving us, the audience, the opportunity to be our own Mary Whitehouse’s; make out own censorship decisions rather than someone do it for us. I find that an attractive idea.

It made me wonder how The People’s Voice (TPV), David Icke’s new media project, will work out. His intention is ‘no censorship’ and how exactly will that be managed since someone makes a decision as to what goes to air based upon judgement and, therefore, belief systems will presumably come into play.
Mainstream journalist Sonia Poulton of is due to jump ship and collaborate with TPV. Her profile states she deplores bad manners. Will TPV air commentary from the likes of Christopher Spivey and The Artist Taxi Driver flowing with expletives intact? My friend certainly gets prickly at the audio phonetic frequency of ‘cunt’. Art critic Brian Sewell wrote to me about the ‘... mentality of cunts... the word survives only in the Romany of gypsies.’
Another friend says a ‘cunt’ is a gypsy term for ‘pretty small fire’. There is ‘cant’ slang and apparently once a Gropecunte Lane in London. TPV could have Brian involved; he pulls no punches. I digress.

Sonia e-mailed me:
       “Hi Ned... I welcome any channel that not only does what you want but starts to allow us to feel as if we are living in a real world.
       I am sick of a media narrative that doesn't match the reality. Time is long over-due for a change. Exciting times.”

Yes, these are exciting times and I’m anticipating TPV with enthusiasm and intrigue as to how beliefs, judgement and censorship will be managed or not.

I further considered judgement of others and bringing people to justice, such as perceived tyrants like Kissinger, Blair and Obama; recently referred to as a war criminal in the Irish Parliament. What if the ‘system’ cracked, misdemeanours were unveiled and suddenly individuals held to account for crimes committed. Where will the accountability stop? There is allegedly an extensive web of individuals to be held to account. The thought of filling more jails with more criminals has a sense of merely repeating the same old model. BBC Radio 4 told me the other day it costs £300,000 per year to keep child killer Ian Brady locked up. What else to do? A locked cell and throw away the key? Cheaper still, a bullet?

I would welcome seeing the likes of the current mismanagement team, whether Jamie Dimon, Ben Bernanke, Jon ‘The Slime’ Corzine or any number of likely suspects, side-lined once and for all. We’ve had enough of their running this abysmal show: now go away, stay away, be in comfort provided by your ill gotten gains by all means, so long as you are no longer running our lives; a new model has replaced you! However, a new model approach might involve implementing the concept of unconditional love and a general amnesty for such crooks and bounders; and that will be a challenge for those seeking justice from the ‘Just Us’ gang; as trends forecaster Gerald Celente refers to the white shoe boyz.

The first time I really considered a policy of general amnesty was while listening to Dr. Steven Greer, the UFO Disclosure chap. He suggested the spider’s web of foul play runs so deep and wide, we have no choice but to announce a general amnesty. A general amnesty fits nicely with the Holographic Universe unconditional love model and conjures up that old ‘spiritual’ commandment: Judge not lest ye be judged. What a pity so many who say they are religiously inclined do not adhere to this commandment; not crusaders such as Blair or Bush; or hard-line Zionists; or hard-line Buddhists, a term used in Time Magazine recently; nor extreme Islamists. Just by referring to someone as an extremist, I am being judgemental. It’s a challenging concept to adhere to. Relationship breakdown with girlfriends, boyfriends, parents, anyone, is a challenge of unconditional love for everyone everyday.

Mind you, returning to art criticism, Sewell refers to L.S. Lowry as "inept, tedious, repetitive, lacklustre, stuck in a rut" and my first reaction was, that’s a bit harsh Brian. But, that’s Brian’s job: to give his opinion and make judgement on an artist’s work.

Yep, it might be as well we consider a general amnesty, perhaps a truth commission or investigative enquiry to explore all the lost technology and hidden secrets, so we can offer sanctuary to those we require to spill the beans, put them to one side out of our or their harm’s way and focus on creating a new model based on... here we go: unconditional love. Yeah, nice idea Ned, now get real! You can't beat the system! Or can you? It’s a thought.

As a footnote my friend, while working on a project together, once slammed a specific choice of music of mine: Miles Davis, Kind of Blue, which he described as boring twiddly-twiddly sounds made by blokes on heroin. Kind of Blue is sublime and among my desert island disc choices. My friend then put Hawkwind on the music box, one of the few albums I’ve bought in my time and, unimpressed, I returned it to the record shop. Awful stuff. I rest my case. Of course, by merely resting my case I have committed judgement again.

I have suggested my friend write and comment directly to Tap. He didn’t seem keen to.

Anyway Tap, seems I continue to keep your company:

Children Detained In Turkey

How does this happen? Stuff just does?
294 children detained during Gezi protests in Turkey:

This is alarming considering the significance of Children's Day for Türkiyeah...

Children’s festivals take place throughout Turkey on National Sovereignty and Children’s Day, held on April 23 each year. Children take seats in the Turkish Parliament and symbolically govern the country for one day.
The first gathering of the Turkish Grand National Assembly took place on April 23, 1920, during Turkey’s War of Independence (1919-1923). Mustafa Kemal Ataturk proclaimed the parliament an important step toward building a new state after the Ottoman Empire was defeated during World War I. Ataturk reportedly dedicated the Turkish Republic to children in Turkey.
Turkey officially celebrated Grand National Assembly Day on April 23 and held a children’s week starting on that day, from 1923–1934. The Turkish government then combined the two events into National Sovereignty and Children’s Day in 1935. Turkish Radio and Television Corporation has been organising international children’s festivals, held during the week of April 23, since 1979.

Turkish Hurriyet Newspaper Publishes Blessing & Beating

I just watched this on Turkish/English newspaper website
There's a video showing police beating 'protestors'. This kind of behaviour must stop, whether in Turkey, Brazil, the USA or wherever, it has to stop. It is not a solution for anyone, it is not civil, it is not policing, it is bullying and presumeably criminal.
Video of beating:

On the same website is: Prime Minister Erdoğan blesses Turkish police for ‘heroic’ action during Gezi unrest:

Compared to footage we have seen from other countries, this could be viewed as tame, but it is not acceptable, full stop. No Prime Minister can have it both ways. At least a mainstream Turkish newspaper Hurriyet is presenting different sides to the story which can be appreciated and shared far and wide. We do not want this behaviour from taxpayer funded officials in any country.

In 2006 NPP, Ned Pamphilon Productions, were asked to contribute toward the 161st anniversary of the foundation of the Istanbul Police Department by presenting of a portrait of Atatürk to the Istanbul Police HQ. Ned Pamphilon, that's me, accordingly presented the painting on 09 April 2006 in the presence of Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbaş, Istanbul Governor Muammer Guler and Istanbul Police Chief Celalettin Cerrah at Taksim Square, Istanbul. The painting Gelecege Gulumsemek gives reference to a progressive, optimistic, peaceful and tolerant future for us all:
'Let’s look to the future with smile!'
... Hey, I'm an artist; I was being optimistic; always look on the bright side of life etc.
Police Chief, Governor, Mayor, artist...

Whether you are an admirer or otherwise, Atatürk stated his desire for the national police force to be disciplined, law abiding and caring. These are qualities all police organisations throughout the world must relate to. These are qualities we can all relate to whether public or private citizens.

These are qualities NPP are happy to promote and any gesture intended to consolidate this message is regarded as a positive and constructive step. NPP donated this painting as a positive message for the Turkish Police Department while at the same time highlighting the international peaceful vision of Ataturk. Watching this video it is tempting to comment, how bloody naive Ned!

As Mustafa Kemal AtatÜrk stated upon the establishment of the Police College in 1934:



He'll be rolling his blue eyes at the shameful excuse for policing shown in the video. I still have the scarf. Well, it's Arsenal colours... I know, I know.

We’re the best! But, we’re the best! Neither of you are, we are the best!

I heard Merve from Istanbul this morning talking to the bloke who hosts the Sunday morning BBC Radio 4 programme at 9am...
(BBC Broadcasting House 23.06.2013

In response to being asked if she felt patriotic, proud to be Turkish, she replied something along the lines of,
“... not necessarily proud to be Turkish, but to be a human being.”

Wow. That was a brave thing to say. In Turkey being proud to be a Turk is part of growing up and especially as a modern, post-Atatürk Turkish woman, I expected her to say,
“... of course, I’m proud to be Turkish.”

Whether in the UK, USA or Turkey, so often I’ve heard the same old rhetoric from the same old political mind-set: we’re proud to be British/American/Turkish; we are the best! I often thought, how can the British, the Americans, the Turkish and each country along the way all be the best? It’s like a weird version of Spartacus...
We’re the best!
But, we’re the best!
Neither of you are, we are the best!

Why do we have to be the best? I’ve come to equate it as a Darwinian survival of the fittest and strongest mind-set; though Turkish PM Tayyip Erdoğan may raise an eyebrow at any suggestion linking him to Darwinian theory.

There is a paradigm apparently shifting toward the theory of love and oneness rather than being above, beyond and better than the competition. This ‘new’ paradigm of course is not a new philosophy, indeed, according to Turkish/Persian icon Rumi Mevlana:
“Love is the positive energy that is responsible for interaction between particles, thus connecting everything with everything else in the universe. So everything in the universe is interdependent.”

Proud and patriotic? Merve, I heard you, I get it and I’m with you! I’ve long felt a disassociation to being patriotic. I feel a sense of care and responsibility to my family, friends, local community, the wider community and generally an increasing awareness of being a part of the human community; wanting to get on and be peaceful, cordial and constructive with everyone else rather than the perpetual fighting and squabbling that has haunted our planet for aeons. I sensed in Merve’s answer the evolving consciousness awareness that seems to be growing and developing around the world perhaps inspired by the alternative media voices such as Graham Hancock, Bruce Lipton, Tom Campbell, Gerald Celente, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Jeff Rense, Alex Jones and numerous others and last, but by no means least, ex BBC Sports anchor David Icke.

The likes of Tayyip Erdoğan, David Cameron and Obama (I keep wanting to type Obomba) seem so out of touch. The guests invited onto the same morning BBC radio programme to make comment on the Sunday papers also seemed out of touch. To my mind, though intended to be aware commentators with fingers on the pulse of current affairs and thinking, the guests were predictable, conventional and bloody dull.

The protests in both Turkey and Brazil seem to be a level up from the ‘conventional’ Arab Spring uprising. With the advent of media outlets such as Icke's The People’s Voice, the shift may well come to be even more exponential. Inshallah!

Which Side Am I On? Dear Ned. You Are Bonkers.

Matthew Hancock, Conservative MP West Suffolk, UK
Media outlets: Bury Free Press, Diss Express, Archant Newspapers, BBC Radio Suffolk, BBC Radio Norfolk
... plus IceniPost (not really a ‘debating’ platform, yet cool people who serve the local region and kindly promote my projects)

Coney Weston sits on the Suffolk-Norfolk border, so I include Norfolk media outlets; I have dealt with all of you before, and I suggest this issue concerns all of us.

18 June 2013

Dear Matthew & local media outlets,

Which side are we on? I invite community conversation. I have sent this by e-mail. One tries to retain a sense of humour, but I am serious and am asked to write where others prefer not to be seen doing so.

We have a memorial outside our Coney Weston village hall. As we approach the 99 year anniversary of WW1, I am uncomfortable about this Syrian business. I'm about to attend my 2012-13 tax returns and wonder how it is UK taxpayers apparently finance the war against terror instigated by Al Qaeda and now there is talk of the UK financing Al Qaeda and Al Nusra alongside Syrian rebels against Syria's President Assad. How might one distinguish between a terrorist and a rebel? Which side are we on? Which side am I on?

With regard to next year's 100 year WW1 anniversary, it gives pause for thought: 1914-1918: Bloomfield, Brothers, Hogg, Hogg, Hubbard, Ollington, Sadd... exactly what did these men; teenagers; boys die for? Who did they die for? I presume they fought to maintain the freedom we have at home today; freedom for folk like me to book the village hall and invite a chin-wag with anyone who might be inclined to ask similar questions: which side are we on? I add that my Granddad Ned Pamphilon of Gasthorpe and employee at Riddlesworth Hall, thankfully came home.

I heard William Hague on BBC Radio 4 making further argument to remove the regime in Syria.
"Our priority is to save lives..."
How will arming Syrian 'rebels' save lives? As Vladimir Putin said yesterday:
"Do you want to supply arms to people who eat their enemies organs?"

I watch events unfold in Istanbul, Turkey, where I spent over 10 years, Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan (phonetic: air-dough-an) said during a speech to the parliament in Algeria...
"Assad... will have to pay the price sooner or later..."
About the protests in Turkey he has said:
"Nobody can intimidate us. We take no orders or instruction from anyone but God..."

I sense an increasing number of voting people here and there, asking: which side are we on? Turkey is close to my heart; these eyes of Atatürk looking over Taksim Square are from my image:

A chat with my hairdresser about her son being diagnosed with ADHD led to discussions on food, diet, politics, life etc... don’t get me started on the multi-billion $ cancer business. I was challenged to hold a community meeting... inspired by a comment about Kevin Kostner's Field of Dreams film: build it, they will come. So, I booked the village hall to find out if they will come.

There is at least one new radio/TV media outlet I am aware of being established: The People’s Voice. It’s a crazy idea and they plan to avoid censorship; we must stop being victims. I read Orwell’s 1984 in 1984 and I observe ‘thought-crime’ has become a reality. I want to make up my own mind, not have Mary Whitehouse types censoring on my behalf. You all have the choice: adapt and evolve as the market requires or become redundant. The younger generations are getting it and older generations better wise up. Please understand I wish to be constructive, helpful and available. I am informing you, not intending to alienate you.

I write as I feel, speaking up rather than not and organising the Village Hall of Dreams in my 'conservative' English countryside village where I risk being looked upon as an eccentric fool... sod it. The other week I performed guitar and song for the Botesdale Village Hall 100 year anniversary; in July I will perform at Coney Weston church. I am hardly a fringe member of the community. I am fed up with bloody endless war fighting and taxpayers funding it.

This is the 3rd Village Hall of Dreams and the first time I'm publicly announcing it. I've no idea how many will come. Some have already said they will attend, but we'll see. If nothing else we'll have a sing-song, though I trust there will be further discussion. Sure, it’s a drop in the ocean, but drops make an ocean. I suggest there are issues and discussions local newspapers and radio – that’s you lot! - could further engage in... my hairdresser certainly thinks so.

Best wishes,
Yurtta Barış Dunyada Barış!
Peace at Home, Peace in the World!
