The Empath Test

Jon Ronson famously wrote a book a few years ago called The Psychopath Test, see: Now somebody has developed a test for another personality type: the empath. It's on a blog by a woman called "Willemijn". I don't know if that's her real name. It is a Dutch or South African name, but I don't know where she comes from. She says she used to work in the financial industry, one notorious for its attraction to psychopaths, see background link below. Then she had a spiritual awakening and started her website which also offers psychic services such as healing and divination. Her article is called: Are you an Empath? 13 Surefire Signs with a Personal Empath Test. As with the other examples in the background links below, it really strikes a chord with me, perhaps the most out of all of them. It uses the term "energy vampires" which sounds as if it means something similar to the one I coined: "emotional vampires", see here for details: Willemijn's article's description of relationships and interaction with narcissists is particularly perceptive.

Here are my test results:
Do you feel different or as if you don't fit in with others? Yes
Are you able to feel the pain of people or animals? Yes
Do these feelings tend to manifest physically? Yes
Do you know what others are feeling, even if they are trying to hide it? Yes
Are there times when you (or others) feel you are too emotional or sensitive? Yes
Do you struggle with chronic anxiety or depression that isn't situational? Yes
Does noise, lots of movement, or certain smells make you feel anxious? No
Do you avoid public places because they make you feel overwhelmed? No
Do you feel drained after being around large groups? No
Is your mood affected by the emotional state of others? Yes
Are interpersonal relationships with others hard for you to manage? Yes
Do art, literature, and music move you emotionally? Yes
Do you avoid conflict with others because of the way it makes you feel? No
Are there times when you mimic the accents or mannerisms of others without meaning to? Yes
Does multitasking seem overly difficult for you? Yes
Are you more connected with nature and animals than the average person? Yes
Do people tend to come to you for help with their problems? Yes
Are you affected physically or emotionally by violent images or videos? Yes
Do you overeat, drink, smoke, or engage in other unhealthy habits to deal with strong emotions? No
Do certain medications or caffeine have a strong effect on your physical or mental state? Yes
My score is fifteen yes answers. Anything above eight yeses means you are above average on the empathy scale. Fifteen yeses puts me very high, what the author calls "hyper-empathic". The article concludes with some advice for empaths on how to survive in this world, protect oneself and make the most out of life through spiritual practices and mental discipline.

Edward Snowden with Joe Rogan

Edward Snowden has appeared on the controversial talk radio show The Joe Rogan Experience. In 2013 the former intelligence officer and contractor to the National Security Agency revealed a huge number of classified documents relating to electronic surveillance of innocent citizens, not only in the United States of America, but across the world; see background links below. He contacted the journalist Glenn Greenwald (Not to be confused with John Greenewald of The Black Vault) and the two worked secretly at first. Then the information from Snowden was published by Wikileaks and in several newspapers. In May 2013 Snowden did a Kim Philby and defected to avoid facing prosecution as a spy. He first travelled to Hong Kong China where he remained until his possible extradition to the United States was tabled, then he moved on to Russia. His original destination was Ecuador, the same country that was harbouring Julian Assange, but the Americans put pressure on other countries on the route of his journey to prevent Snowden travelling through their airspace, so the fugitive was stuck in Russia where he was eventually granted political asylum. His actions have made him a popular hero with civil rights campaigners in the same league as Julian Assange and Chelsea Manning. However, does he deserve this accolade? The interview with Joe Rogan is as interesting and entertaining as all of Rogan's programmes, but the testimony of his guest raises some concerns for me. At the nine-minute mark he makes reference to a counterterrorism operation called Stellar Wind which was designed to look for Al-Qaeda sleeper cells in the USA "in the wake of 9/11". However Al-Qaeda had nothing to do with 9/11, as I and many others have demonstrated, for example see: At about twenty-three minutes into the interview Snowden recalls his own memories of 9/11 when he was a new intelligence recruit. He says: "I'm at Fort Meade (the NSA headquarters) when 9/11 happens... What people forget is: who knew what was going on before anybody else on September 11th? The intelligence community, right? What did they do? Did they get out a public warning? Did they tell you guys to evacuate? Did they say do this, that, or the other? No, no, not for everybody, not for a long time; but at the NSA the Director ordered the entire campus evacuated of thousands, tens of thousands of people actually. He just said, 'Go home.' The CIA did the same thing." So Snowden explains how the intelligence community had foreknowledge of 9/11, but how? Surely NORAD and the US Air Force must have been the first, wouldn't they? The obvious answer is because the intelligence organizations were directly involved. If somebody knows a crime is about to be committed, then doesn't this make them the prime suspect? Not according to Edward. He explains it as: "They (The NSA and CIA) were running on skeleton crews at the moment the country needed them more than they ever had... I'm like, 'This is crazy! It never closes down.' We don't know what's happening. Then we start checking the news, which is through websites because we're doing all this stuff and, suddenly, it's the big story everywhere. You know, nobody understands how big it is yet." This is a ridiculous excuse. The nation's major intelligence agencies with an annual budget of two-figure billions just happen to be looking the other way? Pull the other one! How can Snowden possibly be that naive?... He can't be; he must be lying at this point. He then moves onto other matters: "In the book (Snowden's upcoming autobiography), I talk about aliens and chemtrails and things like that and the fact that there's no evidence for that... I know, Joe, you want there to be aliens. I know Neil deGrasse Tyson badly wants there to be aliens, and there probably are; but the idea that we're hiding them… If we are hiding them, I had ridiculous access to the networks at the NSA, the CIA, the military; all these groups. I couldn't find anything so, if it's hidden, and it could be hidden, it's hidden really damn well, even from people who are on the inside. The main thing is conspiracy theories, right? Everybody wants to believe in conspiracy theories because it helps life make sense. It helps us believe that somebody is in control, that somebody is called the shots, that these things all happen for a reason; this, that, and the other. There are real conspiracies, but they're not typically that they've got tens of thousands of people working on them... I think there's four million people in the United States who hold security clearances, and you can get all of these people to not talk ever to journalists or this, that, or the other." It's difficult to know what Edward Snowden's thrust is here. He makes several points. The first is that he saw no evidence at all for anything relating to extraterrestrials or chemtrails etc. He does go on to admit that such matters might be outside his sphere of access due to compartmentalization; however he then states what appears to be a series of classic skeptics' lines about deep-seated psychological needs and how large numbers of initiated people would be necessary to keep secrets of that magnitude, and that it would be impossible to make them all collude. Not true at all. As I said to Dr David Grimes, there are other factors involved connected to psychology such as tacit agreement and the Milgram Experiment; see here for detail: Source:

What is really going on here? Snowden could be controlled opposition. Richard D Hall is utterly convinced of this, see: and: In the past I have criticized Richard for being much too hasty to slap the shill sticker onto people, and I still do; but this does not mean Richard is automatically wrong. Could Edward Snowden be a disinformer? In which case, what is the purpose of his disinformation? What thoughts and feelings is his deception implanting in the collective human mind? This is a crucial question everybody should consider when wondering if anything is disinformation or not. In this case the answer is: perhaps that the official story of 9/11 is true, that there are no aliens or geoengineering because if there were, then a top ranking CIA insider would definitely know about it, wouldn't he? Richard points to the fact that Snowden, Assange and Manning have been given essentially an unobstructed platform in the mainstream media, as opposed to people like Dr Judy Wood etc; and this can only be because the media want their information spread around; ergo it can only be false information. This is a distinct possibility. However, as I have explained before, the mainstream media doesn't always have everything it wants. Not everything goes the government's way; especially in the last three years, see: The whistle blowing trio's rise to stardom might be a "post-2016 cock-up", something the government really did not want to happen, but were unable to prevent. I'm pretty convinced that Snowden is lying in his interview with Joe Rogan, but his deceit could be of a different nature to the obvious one, that of simple factual disinformation. It is no secret that he has not published all the classified files he has extracted from the NSA and CIA database. Is he keeping some of them back in order to stay alive? Maybe he has to make a coded phone call to somebody every two hours and if he doesn't then these files hit the Net. In which case, I wonder what is in them? Possibly information about the very topics he ridicules in the interview; aliens, chemtrails, 9/11 conspiracies. Maybe something else that the government can't risk being published. If that it the situation then who would dare assassinate him? In Snowden's position it is understandable that he would do something like this and I sympathize with his plight; but at some point he has to find a way to disseminate these files to the people because the world needs to know.

Another RAF Scramble

At about half past four this morning many people across London and southern England were woken by what sounded like a loud explosion. This was actually a sonic boom caused by high speed aircraft breaking the sound barrier. The aircraft were a pair of Royal Air Force Typhoon fighter interceptors that had just been hastily deployed from RAF Coningsby in Lincolnshire. They accelerated to supersonic speeds, something RAF planes are only allowed to do during serious operations and never during an exercise. The deployment was done as a precaution because a commercial aircraft had become unresponsive. This is a standard procedure, understandable since 9/11. The RAF located the plane and reconnected it to air traffic control. An RAF press officer said: "Typhoon aircraft from RAF Coningsby were scrambled this morning as part of the UK's Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) procedures after an aircraft lost communications in UK airspace. The aircraft was intercepted and its communications were subsequently re-established." The Metropolitan Police Tweeted: "The loud bang heard throughout north London and surrounding areas was the result of a sonic boom from RAF planes. There is no cause for concern." Source:

The identity of the muted commercial aircraft has not been published. It was intercepted by the RAF over southeast England. It was en route to the USA and developed radio problems while flying over Germany. The pilot commented: "It took us about ten minutes to realize that the radio wasn't working and then about ten minutes to resolve that problem... I looked left and about had a heart attack when I saw (the RAF fighters) so close, strobes on and with bluish glow strips along the side of his fuselage." I've watched a few in-cockpit videos of planes in flight, for example see:, and that story lacks the feel of authenticity. Did they not have a spare radio or other contingencies to cope with a broken radio? Why did it take ten minutes to work out the radio was broken when pilots and air traffic control communicate all the time, especially over southern England, which is the world's busiest airspace? As with the other cases in the background links below, I suspect that the "lost plane" is a cover story. So what really happened? It could have been activity by the Russians or other hostile powers that the government wants to keep quiet. Alternatively it might have been invaders who were a little more exotic. I'm interested to find out if there were any UFO sightings in the area. Interceptions like these are becoming more common. Is this because we are receiving more attention from outsiders, however you define that word?
