ABOUT NHNE & HOW TO JOIN US
I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS WORLD
"I am in love with this world... It has been home. It has been my point of outlook upon the universe. I have not bruised myself against it, nor tried to use it ignobly. I have tilled its soil, I have gathered its harvests, I have waited upon its seasons, and always have I reaped what I have sown. While I delved, I did not lose sight of the sky overhead. While I gathered its bread and meat for my body, I did not neglect to gather its bread and meat for my soul. I have climbed its mountains, roamed its forests, sailed its waters, crossed its deserts, felt the sting of its frosts, the oppression of its heats, the drench of its rains, the fury of its winds, and always have beauty and joy waited upon my goings and comings."
A MESSAGE FROM THE PUBLISHER:
A MAJOR TURNING POINT
By David Sunfellow
This issue of the NHNE News Brief marks a major turning point in our efforts to provide timely, factual and inspiring information about the extraordinary events unfolding all over our planet. Beginning with this issue, James Gregory will be assuming the role of Editor-in-Chief of the NHNE News Brief. Along with being a long-time friend, James comes to NHNE with experience as an editor in New York City and Ottawa, Canada. Working together, James and I plan to transform the NHNE News Brief into a dynamic weekly publication that draws heavily on NHNE's own "SwiftWing" global network of reporters. Our goal is to provide the NHNE readership with a steady stream of vital information.
In order to support a weekly publication, we have decided to ask our online readers to support our efforts by paying $1 a week for our services. This is a request, not a requirement. We will continue to email the NHNE News Brief to everyone on the NHNE Mailing List, whether they financially support this work or not. Our hope is that if you find the NHNE News Brief interesting and valuable, that you would be willing to contribute a dollar a week to NHNE (a small price to pay, we think, to stay on the cutting edge of today's rapidly changing planetary transformation movement). In addition to receiving the NHNE News Brief, paid subscribers also receive NHNE Special Reports and Fast-Breaking News.
As of this issue, we are also offering offline versions of our News Brief, Special Reports and Fast-Breaking News. Offline subscriptions are $2 a week ($2.50 for international addresses).
Online News Briefs will be emailed out every Friday, while the offline version will be mailed out the Monday following the publication of the email version. The latest issue of the NHNE News Brief will continue to be published on our web site about a week after the email version comes out. (See the end of this News Brief for more information on how to subscribe.)
Finally, we plan to turn the NHNE News Brief into a money-making venture AND share the abundance. Starting in July, we will begin a profit-sharing arrangement with our contributors and supporters. After paying for basic expenses, 50% for the profits will go to those people who put the News Brief together - the writers, editors, bookkeeper, web programmers, and publisher; the other 50% will go to those people who help promote the News Brief, specifically those who brought in subscriptions, sponsors and donations. We will ask each person who pays for a subscription how they found out about us. If you were the one who told them about NHNE or urged them to take out a subscription, then you will receive a portion of the profits. This also applies to gift subscriptions. We will go into more detail about profit-sharing in future issues.
And that's it from me. I hope you appreciate our efforts to build a grass-roots network among those of us who care about planetary transformation topics. Your support, financial and otherwise, will help insure all of our hopes and dreams for a better, more spirit-filled world become a reality.
With Love & Best Wishes,
GIANT PYRAMIDS IN CHINA
(Source: ISCNI*Flash, 5/16/96)
Hartwig Hausdorf, a German researcher, announced at the Stardate SETI Conference May 4 that China has up to 90 pyramids ranging in size from 35 to 300 meters high and backed up his claim with film footage. Their design of piled earth, stepped sides and flat tops is similar to those in Teotihuacan, Mexico. Why have we never heard of these pyramids before? Because a number of them, including the biggest, are near a Chinese rocket base. (JG)
CHAMBERS TO BE OPENED BENEATH SPHINX & IN QUEEN'S CHAMBER
(Source: MMList, 5/6/96)
Concessions have been granted to open a sealed door in the Queen's Chamber in the Great Pyramid as well as access to a chamber discovered underneath the front paws of the Sphinx. TV companies are expected to pay £10 million to cover the event in September. So far there are no immediate plans to open up a room discovered at the back end of the Sphinx. (JG)
OMINOUS WARNINGS ON WEST COAST & ELSEWHERE
(Source: Stan Deyo, 5/15/96)
Thermal rates have increased dramatically in the Yucatan, along and inland of the California coast, adjacent to the Red Sea, and in and around the Mediterranean. This has also been accompanied by a strange lull in earthquake activity. All indications are that a massive earthquake is immanent. (JG)
HALE-BOPP COMET NOW VISIBLE TO NAKED EYE
(Source: NASA Jet Propulsion Lab, 5/30/96)
The Hale-Bopp Comet discovered on July 23, 1995 by Alan Hale of New Mexico and Thomas Bopp of Arizona is now visible to the naked eye. It can be seen in the mornings just before dawn about 30 degrees above the south-western horizon. Look for a smudge fainter then most stars with a tail of one degree of arc long. The comet will pass within 120 million miles of earth on March 23, 1997. (JG)
TED DANIELS & THE MILLENNIAL PROPHECY REPORT
By David Sunfellow
Nowadays, there are no shortage of prophets, psychics, soothsayers and end-time organizations predicting some kind of epic transition around the turn of the century. Who are all these people? What do they believe? How did they begin? Where are they located? What are they presently doing? One man who has been tracking millennium groups since 1987 is Ted Daniels, publisher, editor and sole employee of THE MILLENNIAL PROPHECY REPORT.
Daniels, 56, who has been mentioned in such main stream publications as US NEWS & WORLD REPORT (12/19/94), recently made a prominent appearance in the alternative press as well. Daniels was featured in a glowing eight-page spread in NEW AGE JOURNAL (June, 1996). Photographed amid piles of end-time newsletters, tracts, newspapers and books, Daniels appears a little frazzled, and no wonder, he claims to be tracking over 1,100 different millennial sources!
But tracking over a thousand millennial sources, and believing in them, are two different things. The NEW AGE JOURNAL article quotes Daniels as saying, "I'm not a believer in any of this stuff." Daniels does, however, believe that "a global change of some kind is actually happening." According to him, "the old centers of geopolitical power are fading away, and economies are shifting their faces and natures."
What's more, Daniels also claims to be a visionary of sorts himself. After spending years working as an actor in New York, and exploring dance therapy and group psychiatrics, he ended up studying folklore at the University of Pennsylvania. It was there, on his way to receiving a Ph.D. in folklore, that the idea came to him to publish a newsletter. "It just dropped on me. It really was like a vision, that this stuff was going to be important."
Beginning with a 600-page compendium called MILLENNIALISM: AN INTERNATIONAL BIBLIOGRAPHY, Daniels eventually began publishing his current newsletter, THE MILLENNIAL PROPHECY REPORT. Although THE MILLENNIAL PROPHECY REPORT has a subscription base of fewer than 200 people, you would never know it from the massive amount of mail Daniels handles: up to 300 email messages a day and some five to ten pounds of snail mail a week. Daniels is also exploring new ways to reach more people. His newest idea? To set up a web site, of course. According to recent email exchanges with this reporter (yes, Daniels is on the NHNE Mailing List - and probably tracking the NHNE project along with his other 1,100 sources), Daniels says his web site is nearly ready to go. According to Daniels, "It'll include an open section of back issues of the newsletter, mainly articles on 'big events' like Waco, the Solar Temple, Aum Shinri Kyo, and Oklahoma City. There will also be a section of current issues that's open to subscribers only."
Daniels defines a "millenarian" as "someone who thinks the world is about to enter or return to a state of paradise - with or without apocalypse and tribulation." He also thinks that America is especially prone to millennialist thinking, and has been from the start. "This is the country where people come to be reborn," Daniels says. "America is the home plate of second chances."
But America is not the only country on Earth subject to end-time fever, nor is Christianity the only religion being whipped into a frenzy as the year 2000 approaches. Pointing out that end-time musings are "human universal" (an idea shared by vast numbers of human beings from many different cultures), Daniels zeros in on one common factor: millennium-thinking tends to thrive during times upheaval and change.
Finally, it is important to note that much of Daniels' fascination with millennialism arises out of a desire to better understand the inner workings of the human psyche. On this count, Daniels offers a warning: "You can't know what's going to come, so it's very tempting to pay a lot more attention... to someone who says 'I DO know what's going to come.' I suggest that people really give these kinds of people some very close scrutiny."
THE MILLENNIAL PROPHECY REPORT is published quarterly.
Cost: $90.00 a year.

MUTANT MESSAGE DEBUNKED
By David Sunfellow
You may remember reading about Marlo Morgan's magical adventures in her best-selling book, MUTANT MESSAGE DOWN UNDER. Morgan, a white, middle-aged American woman, claimed that she was working in Australia as a part-time holistic health-care worker when she received an invitation to attend a ceremony with Aborigine elders who wished to honor her work on behalf of wayward Aboriginal youth. The next thing she knew, she found herself on a 4-month, 1400-mile walkabout with a mystical tribe of miracle-working Aborigines.
While the story itself was fascinating enough to create a rabid following in many New Age circles (and make Morgan a lot of money selling books, appearing on television shows, speaking on the New Age lecture circuit, and pondering multi-million dollar movie deals), there were simply too many holes in her story to keep her ship afloat. She tried (see News Brief 1, October 22, 1994, for details), but a growing chorus of outraged Aboriginal elders, along with a host of tenacious reporters, publishers and government officials finally prevailed. In an emotional hour-long phone call, Morgan admitted that her work was a complete fiction and apologized to group of eight Aboriginal elders. The elders said they would not ask for compensation from Morgan, but they did seek to stop her story from doing further cultural damage by its untruths. There are also reports that a group of Aboriginal elders met with officials from UNITED ARTISTS in an attempt to stop the Hollywood studio from turning Morgan's book into a movie.
No news on what the studio decided to do, but Morgan's book is alive and well. To date, the book has made over $1.8 million and has been published in 11 different languages.

SCALLION'S 4-QUAKE SCENARIO REVISED - AGAIN
Gordon-Michael Scallion has repeatedly revised his 4-Quake Scenario prediction (see NHNE News Brief 13 for details). While the first three events arguably took place more or less as predicted, the fourth event, an earthquake on the West Coast of the United States, has proven elusive. But Scallion hasn't given up. In the current issue of Scallion's EARTH CHANGES REPORT (May, 1996), Scallion repeated the following prediction, which first appeared in the April issue of ECR:
"I sense that a series of quakes will hit the West Coast of the United States this April or May, and that one of these will hit the Los Angeles area with a magnitude 7.7 or greater. This may, or may not, be my predicted Palm Springs 9.0 quake. I also see quakes greater than magnitude 6.0 occurring in the Cascade Range in Oregon and Washington during the same time frame."
Since this is the last day of May, it looks like Scallion struck out again on this one.
On the positive (or negative) side, Scallion points out that the Mammoth Lakes region of California continues to be active. The area has been hit with 16 quakes of magnitude 3.0 or greater prompting seismologists to issue a volcano watch. And, of course, as reported earlier in this issue, Stan Deyo, is reporting dramatic hot spots (indicative of future earthquakes) are appearing in various parts of California. (DS)
SCALLION'S WORLD MAP
For those of you who have been anxiously waiting for Scallion's "Future Map of the World" to become available, your wait is over. Scallion began shipping his HUGE world earth changes map the first of May. Measuring a massive 46" X 60", the map shows the relief of the ocean floor and land masses, as well as current political boundaries, and contains Scallion's global earth change predictions and explanations.
The cost: $22.00 (folded), $25.00 (rolled), $35.00 (laminated), plus shipping and handling.
And, yes, you will have to buy a copy of Scallion's map to get a good look at it. In the most recent issue of ECR, the map was described, and even pictured, but the picture was electronically doctored so both the map was fuzzy and the text that appears on it couldn't be read. (DS)

CROP CIRCLE WATCH:
LECTURE BY COLIN ANDREWS
(The following information was presented by Colin Andrews at Madison Square Garden on November 19, 1995. It is taken from a summary by Jon Strauss that has been widely distributed on the Internet.)
Colin Andrews is an electrical engineer who has been studying the phenomenon of crop circles for more than 12 years and now holds the largest database on crop circles in the world. His first experience with crop circles changed him profoundly. He is the author of "Circular Evidence" and lives in England.
Crop circles are now a global phenomenon. They commonly occur in cereal crops, but also in fields of tobacco and sugar. They have been found on ice too thin to support weight and in conifer forests.
Many represent geometric figures such as tetrahedons, logarithmic curves and the Mandelbrot Set; others show sacred symbols like the Celtic Cross.
Some specific examples:
A crop circle half a mile long was created within a five-hour time period next to a busy highway. No unusual activity was noted during that time.
A crop circle was found in a Japanese rice paddy, but no footsteps were found in the mud.
Three crop circles appeared in Germany and in the center of each, a metal plate showing a drawing of the respective crop circle. One of the plates was pure gold, one pure silver, and one (possibly) bronze.
A researcher deliberately destroyed a crop circle of a complicated logarithmic curve only to see it re-appear a few days later.
In an extremely complicated design of three circles forming a triangular shape, with each circle having 48 lines radiating from the center and seven concentric rings, more rings were added over the next few days, some only two inches in width.
One crop circle showed the Latin text: "Opponno Astos" - "I oppose deception."
Stonehenge seems to be somehow connected to the phenomenon with the largest percentage of crop circles appearing within a 40 mile radius of it. 90% of crop circles are found near water, especially underground springs. Some of the crop circles show infrared designs not visible to the naked eye.
Up to 50% of crop circles are suspected to be hoaxes, but some aspects of those judged to be genuine would be exceedingly difficult, if not impossible, to duplicate. Stalks are bent, never broken; in fact, the grain involved quickly rebounds and seems to grow better than the surrounding crop. Plants seem to be altered at the cellular and atomic levels and show a lattice structure never seen before. The inner perimeter of the designs show sine waves of a complex mathematical formula. High radiation levels up to 300% above background seem to be associated with crop circles. Eyewitness accounts verify that crop circles occur in seconds.
Andrews feels that crop circles are created by a high form of consciousness using a form of microwave radiation and are a "spiritual nudge" to humanity.
LINK BETWEEN SOLAR ACTIVITY & EARTHQUAKES?
By James Gregory
The science of predicting solar storms is decades behind weather prediction, but scientists say that within the next four years, a spectacular display of northern lights in the night skies over Florida will signal the arrival of a billion-ton wave of superhot, electrically charged gas blasted out from the sun. It will crash into the Earth's magnetic field at speeds of up to 1,000 miles per second. The next burst is predicted to peak around January, 2,000 and will be more active than average. In 1989, the last time solar activity peaked (it tends to come in 11 year cycles), it knocked Hydro-Quebec off the power grid and blacked out 6 million people in several northeastern states and the province of Quebec.
According to Stan Deyo, a specialist in alternative methods of earthquake prediction, the sun has been behaving peculiarly the last few years. In 1991, it began emitting a new band of spectral emissions. At the same time, the numbers of neutrinos in solar emissions declined dramatically. And studies based upon data going back to 1840 indicate that the diameter of the sun has been shrinking at the rate of 16 kilometers per year, but in the last two years the diameter of the sun has suddenly increased by 200 kilometers! So much for solar stability!
What happens on the sun seems to do more on earth than create northern lights. Preliminary studies of world-wide earthquake activity over the past 250 years reveal a startling correlation with solar storms. But how can activities on the sun 93 million miles away be the cause of earthquakes on Earth? It appears that the impact of the collisions actually alter the Earth's rate of rotation thus triggering earthquakes.
Sound far fetched? A recent flurry of solar activity studies seems to indicate otherwise. NASA has just launched two satellites called "Wind" and "Polar" to monitor the solar wind as it howls towards Earth and photograph the northern lights respectively. Next year Russia will launch two similar probes. In November, the European Union will open a radar installation in Norway to monitor solar particles. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in Boulder, Colorado, has set up a aurora borealis hotline: (303)497-3235. And next year NASA will launch the Advanced Composition Explorer satellite which will park 1.6 million miles out between the Earth and the sun to provide the first real-time advance notice that a geomagnetic storm is on track to Earth.

1996 HURRICANE SEASON PREDICTIONS
(Source: Reuters, 4/5/96)
Looks like 1996 is going to be another above-average year for hurricanes, according to hurricane forecaster Prof. William Gray of Colorado State University. Last year was second only to 1933 as the busiest year ever for hurricanes with 19 tropical storms resulting in 11 hurricanes, 5 of which were classified as killer storms. The average season would expect 9 tropical storms resulting in 5 hurricanes.
For 1996, he is predicting 11 tropical storms leading to 7 hurricanes, 2 of which are expected to be killer storms. His predictions are based on an analysis of world weather patterns including ocean temperature, surface pressure, wind patterns, and rainfall.
Hurricane seasons begins June 1. (JG)
"AWAKENING TO ZERO POINT"
By James Gregory
According to Gregg Braden, the author of "Awakening to Zero Point," the rotation of the Earth will cease completely in four years. This is the "Zero Point," the quiet that precedes transformation. This event will be accompanied by a reversal of the Earth's magnetic field and a change in the base rate of vibration of the planet from 7.8 to 13 cycles per second heralding the awakening of planetary consciousness.
As much as I am interested in planetary transformation and would love to see it happen in my lifetime, I had a number of problems with Gregg Braden's book.
First of all, I was put off by the fact that the book is padded with double-spaced text and extra-wide margins. It seems to me to be an attempt to make it look impressive by sheer bulk.
Secondly, although the book is filled with charts and diagrams, much of his science is fuzzy and his conclusions do not follow from the data. For example, his world map of the vertical magnetic field intensity is a crucial piece of evidence to support his theories, yet the map is so small (this in a oversized book!) as to be incomprehensible and his conclusions regarding the effect of low magnetic zones on world history are vague. His comments concerning the changing base vibrational rate of the planet are interesting, but his projected rate of 13 cycles per second by the year 2000 does not follow from the data he presents. And as a final example, he predicts that the Earth will soon completely cease rotating because the rate of rotation is slowing down yet, curiously, he never tells us the rate at which the Earth is slowing down (the days are getting longer by about 20 millionths of a second each year). If the Earth is to stop based upon the forces he is talking about it will not be in our lifetime. [However, there may be cosmic forces at work which do have the power to significantly affect the speed of rotation of the Earth. See the article in this issue about the link between solar activity and earthquakes.]
In other cases his data is downright wrong. He claims that electric signals have been recorded travelling at over 100 times the speed of light. This is not true - the speed of light is still nature's upper limit. He talks about crop circles increasing at a geometric rate, but uses a linear curve as his proof, plus he omits data from the last two years where the total number of crop circles actually went down. He talks about the human body being 98% carbon, yet every school child knows that the body is 75% water (hydrogen and oxygen).
On the positive side, I enjoyed his discussion about crop circles. First appearing in England in the mid 70's, these "glyphs," as he prefers to call them, have since increased in number and complexity. They are now found around the world not only in cereal crops but also in snow, ice and stands of tall trees. Only a small percentage can be explained as hoaxes, the rest have many unusual features that cannot be naturally duplicated. I feel his interpretation of the crop circles as messages written in at least five different symbolic languages -- sacred geometry, genetics, electrical circuitry, mathematical constants, and sacred symbols -- was intriguing, but needs further research for clarification. It seems like the universe is going to a lot of trouble to make a point that humanity finds unclear.
What the book does well is to promote his own line of video tapes, seminars, retreats, and sacred journeys. He plugs his business at least ten times throughout the book.
All in all, I think Bradden tries to draw so many diverse elements together to support his theories that he ends up leading the reader into a confusing morass. The author could benefit from being clear as to the conclusions he wants to make, and then include only the data that is needed to make those points.
I long to see the transformation of the planet in my lifetime, but this is not the book that is going to give most of us the tools or the understanding we need to prepare for it.
MILK'S SAFETY QUESTIONED
(Source: SPECTRUM, Jan-Feb/96)
The wonder drug recombinent bovine somatotropin (rBST, also called rBGH) developed by Monsanto in 1993 to boost milk production in dairy cattle by 10 to 20%, does not seem to be living up to its promises to be safe for humans. It does seem to boost milk production by elevating Insulin-Like Growth Factor 1 (IGF-1) but the IGF-1 was supposed to break down during digestion. It now appears that the protein in milk prevents it from being destroyed, allowing it slip into the human bloodstream. IGF-1 is a suspected carcinogen. Many European countries and Canada have banned the hormone from milk production. (JG)
TAKING LEMONS AND MAKING LEMON-AID
(Source: NEWSWEEK, 6/3/96)
Since they invaded the Great Lakes decades ago, lampreys (snake-like eels that suck the living juices out of other fish) have plagued the lake trout fishing industry. Over the years, the Fishery Commission has tried to eradicate the pests with poison, traps and sterilization, but to no avail. Now there is hope: a Duluth, Minn., project has started shipping lampreys to Portugal where they are considered a delicacy. If they pass the taste test, they will be exported in quantity at $23 a pound. Now if we can just talk the French into sampling our Zebra mussles! (JG)
ORGANIC FOOD IS BETTER
(Source: SPECTRUM, Jan-Feb/96)
Childhood cancer increased 21.3% from 1950 to 1988 and pesticides and other chemicals in food are suspected to be the cause. The problem is that safe levels for chemicals were set for adults not children. Pesticides seem to lower vitamin content in vegetables. The best defense seems to be organically-grown food. On the positive side, the National Academy of Sciences has just released a report that pesticides and chemical food additives pose less of a cancer risk than a bad diet. (JG)
GOOD SLEEP MAKES FOR GOOD RELATIONSHIPS
(Source: SPECTRUM, Jan-Feb/96)
Lack of sleep could destroy your relationships as well as your health. Sleep deprivation impairs cognitive functioning and leads to negative personality changes, such as increased irritability and loss of humor. Interpersonal conflicts could easily escalate into major confrontations.
Snoring is one of the great sleep stealers. It is common for people to snore more as they grow older. There are a variety of techniques to reduce snoring, such as sewing a tennis ball into the back of your pyjamas (most people only snore when they are lying on their backs), wearing mechanical devices or using nasal sprays such as Y-Snore that open the nasal passages making it easier to breathe through your nose, devices that shock the snorer, and even laser surgery to reduce the soft pallet.
Our advice: try the non-surgical methods first. We are especially fond of the tennis ball solution. (DS)
POISONED IN THE GULF
(Source: TIME, 5/29/96)
10,000 soldiers came home from the war in Kuwait to find themselves covered in rashes, forgetful and sometimes too weak to walk without canes. Five years and $80 million later, the Gulf-War Syndrome was still a mystery, until last week, when researchers from Duke University and the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Centre released the results of a study that linked the veterans' problems to chemicals used to protect them from insects and nerve gas.
In the report, chickens were treated with nonlethal doses of Deet and Permethrin, insect repellents used topically and sprayed on uniforms, and Pyridostigmine, an anti-nerve gas pill. Birds receiving just one, suffered no ill effects, but those exposed to any two of the chemicals showed signs of nerve damage. Chickens treated with all three showed extensive nerve damage and suffered from tremors, weakness, and loss of muscle control in their legs. The results of a second study monitoring 249 veterans have not yet been released, but ailing veterans feel vindicated already. (JG)
THE PATTERSON POWER CELL
By David Sunfellow
GOOD MORNING AMERICA, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL and NIGHTLINE have all reported on a remarkable new energy device that claims to produce more energy than it uses. Dubbed the "Patterson Power Cell" after its inventor, James Patterson, the device consists of a cannister of tiny metal beads coated with layers of copper, nickel, and palladium. When ordinary water and a small electric charge are run through the cell, enormous amounts of heat are produced.
Sounds impressive, but is it for real? Well, THE U.S. PATENT AND TRADEMARK OFFICE, which has flatly said that cold fusion, like perpetual motion, is impossible and unpatentable, has issued a patent on the gadget. The new energy machine has also been boldly demonstrated at three technical conferences in the last nine months-- a significant accomplishment because most cold-fusion contraptions are so unstable they don't work on command.
The folks behind the Patterson Power Cell are so confident of their invention that they are seeking to develop various commercial applications for the technology, such as industrial heat/power generation equipment, residential hot water heaters, continuous battery charging units, and other commercial and industrial products.
Only one problem: they're not sure how the darn thing works.

Standing Elk of the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota has invited medicine people and elders from the Red Nation and ET experts from around the world to a sacred convocation to pool known information about extraterrestrial visits and share that knowledge with the world. The conference will be held in Wagner, South Dakota from June 12-15. For more information, call (605) 384-5152 or fax (540) 349-1750.
WORLD PEACE AND PRAYER DAY: JUNE 21
The birth last year of a white buffalo calf was a sign to native spiritual leaders and elders that ancient prophecies are now being fulfilled. "It is time for a return to balance or face global disaster," says Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe for the Lakota, Dakota, Nakota Nation. Looking Horse is calling for a day of prayer on June 21 starting at 10 a.m. MST in an effort to heal the planet.

THE MYSTERIOUS ORIGINS OF MAN: JUNE 8
NBC's "The Mysterious Origins of Man" sparked heated controversy within the academic community when originally broadcast February 25, 1996, and will be re-broadcast on Saturday, June 8 (8-9 p.m. ET). Professors of science and anthropology from some of the nation's most prestigious colleges and universities voiced strong opinions about some of the theories in the special, which challenged long-accepted beliefs about man's beginnings.
"Our goal was simply to present the public with evidence which suggests an alternative view to some of our most accepted theories," says producer Bill Cote. "We questioned fundamental issues that they (scientists) felt should not be questioned. The bottom line is: the world is bigger than scientists can explain, and some of them want us to believe they can explain everything."

WORKS IN PROGRESS:
A SECOND WHITE BUFFALO
There have been reports that a second white buffalo calf has been born. We are looking into this story, trying to find out what the presence of a second white buffalo may mean in Native American prophecies.

ABOUT NHNE & HOW TO JOIN US:
NewHeavenNewEarth is a spontaneous, grass roots network of enthusiastic people who believe that a divine plan is unfolding in the earth. Our primary goal is to identify, understand and manifest this plan as best we can.
We also believe that our planet is passing through a time of profound change and we are busily building a global network to share information, pool resources and connect with others of like mind. Our goal is to create a global community of like-minded people that can safely pass through whatever changes may come our way and help give birth to a new way of life on our planet.
Based primarily on the Information Highway, we are not directly affiliated with any particular religion, organization, political view or institution, but are aware of and working in harmony with many groups who share similar goals.
We invite everyone who is sincerely seeking to understand the reason for our existence and the nature of the changes presently unfolding on our planet, to join us.
To join NHNE, send an email message to "firstname.lastname@example.org" and ask to be placed on our mailing list. There is no cost, but we do ask that you consider taking out a subscription to help us with our expenses.
Our home base is on the World Wide Web. Along with containing a database of all of our material, our Web site also provides a host of other important services.
