Bringing in-depth reporting of crime and corruption in high places
DOOM WEAPONS & AUM SHINRIKYO
it comes to Aum Shinrikyo - the sinister Japanese cult said to be
responsible for the Tokyo subway Sarin attack in 1995 - almost anything
is possible. But some
serious journalists and independent scientists who have investigated
the shadowy background of Aum, are unravelling sinuous connections
that leap-frog the Aum story into another league altogether.[i]
focus on claims that Aum were intimately involved in the research
and development of futuristic doomsday weapons that make today’s nuclear
missiles look like children’s toys.
These weapons, they believe, are so advanced that they don’t
“officially” exist in the armouries of the major powers.
These involve the use of Tesla Electromagnetic pulse, earthquake
inducing and Plasma weapons being covertly tested in remote regions
of the world.
at the centre of these allegations are a series of powerful earthquakes,
strange fireballs and aerial lights manifesting above Western Australia.
They also revolve around the major January 1995 quake which
laid waste to the Japanese City of Kobe.
The latter resulted in the crash of the Tokyo stock exchange
- itself directly leading to the collapse of England’s spook-infested
Barings bank. Suggestions
that the Kobe event may have been caused by a laser-powered seismic
weapon continue to circulate.
Aum’s charismatic guru, Shoko Asahara, predicted the Kobe quake nine
days before the event. In
an 8 January 1995 radio broadcast, Asahara stated “Japan will be attacked
by an earthquake in 1995. The
most likely place is Kobe.”
Hideo Murai, the late Science and Technology minister for Aum
Shinrikyo also adhered to this view.
Murai - said to have been the most intelligent Japanese who
ever lived - was murdered in a Yakuza orchestrated assassination shortly
after speaking on the record to foreign news correspondents.[ii]
presented his allegation in an April 7 1995 news conference at the
Foreign Correspondent Club in Japan.
In answer to questions about the Kobe quake, Murai said “There
is a strong possibility of the activation of an earthquake using electromagnetic
power, or somebody may have used a device that applied force inside
the Earth.” The Aum leadership
believed the Kobe quake an act of war: “The City of Kobe was hit by
a surprise attack…” they claimed, adding the City was an “…appropriate
singular interest in weapons of mass destruction - including sophisticated
earthquake, weather and plasma weapons - were considered serious enough
to launch a special investigation by the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee
on Investigations. Chaired
by Senator Sam Nunn, the committee spent five months conducting hundreds
of interviews of “both government and private individuals.”[iv]
These included classified briefings from numerous US intelligence
agencies. Their findings
were published in an October 1995, 100 page report on the Aum cult.
Nunn report, in addition to outlining Aum’s large international membership
and massive finances of US$1 billion plus, also revealed the cult’s
fascination for Tesla weapons.
The Senate report describes Aum’s visits to the New York based
International Tesla Society (ITS), where they sought to obtain a number
of his books, patents and papers.
A representative of the ITS told Senate investigators that
Aum’s interest focused on Tesla’s experiments with “resonating frequencies,”
adding that “Tesla had experimented in creating earthquakes.”
Significantly, the report also states that Tesla claimed “…with
his technology he could ‘split the world’ in two.”
This astonishing assertion closely parallels remarks made by
Soviet Premier Krushchev to the Presidium in 1960, where he referred
to “…the advent of a new class of Soviet Superweapon, so powerful
it could wipe out all life on earth if unrestrainedly used.”[v]
least, the Senate report mentions Tesla’s development of a “ray gun
in the 1930’s, which was actually a particle beam accelerator,” and
which was said to be able to “shoot down an airplane at 200 miles.[vi]”
Following Tesla’s death in 1943, the US government seized his
papers and research notes, placing them under national security lock
and key. An undoubted
genius during his life, Tesla’s papers curiously remain highly classified
today - 53 years later.
addition to visiting New York’s ITS, Aum personnel also travelled
to the Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
Their studies here included researching the so called “Tesla
Coil” - a device used for alternating currents.
Additionally, they also uncovered Tesla’s work on “high energy
voltage transmission and on wave amplification, which Tesla asserted
could be used to create seismological
intriguing and informative as they are, this is not the place to provide
a detailed background of Aum Shinrikyo’s ideology.
However, it is important to note that the cult shared one common
thread with their arch rivals, the militaristic Soka Gakkai.
The latter is a truly enormous and powerful Japanese religious
cult with 15 million members and massive finances.
The cult have thoroughly infiltrated every aspect of Japanese
life and, according to veteran reporter Jack Amano, have “covert cells”
operating throughout all government departments.
Every major Japanese business corporation is riddled with members,
Moreover, SG have enormous influence over current Japanese
cults adhere to the cataclysmic teaching of the 18th century
prophet monk, Nichiren. This
doctrine states that an apocalyptic “final war” (saishu senso”) is
to be fought against the “Christian west and the Islamic world.”
Also known as the “100 hundred year war” it pre-dates WW11
and continues to be fought in the shadows, even as we speak.[ix]
THE RUSSIAN BEAR
the early nineties, Asahara and his fellow Aum leaders had made giant
inroads into the former Soviet Union.
Operating at the highest levels, agreements were reached for
the Russians to provide advanced weaponry to Aum.
Unsurprisingly, as soon as pen was put to paper - between the
Russian government and official representatives of the Japanese government
- to ratify the agreements hammered out by Aum - the leadership of
Soka Gakkai again felt free to re-commence hostilities against their
rival. This resulted,
Amano says, in the now infamous Tokyo gas attack.
Vilified throughout the world - for an act of sabotage they
did not engineer - Aum Shinrikyo’s growing reach and power was effectively
crushed, leaving Soka Gakkai in the driving seat once more.
Nunn report makes clear that Aum sought to selectively recruit Russian
scientists into its fold. They
targeted, in particular, physicists, chemists, biologists and others
engaged in advanced military weapons research.
The Senate report also states that Aum were in the process
of purchasing a gas laser for plasma-weapons research from their Russian
contacts, one of who was Oleg Lobov, Premier Yeltsin’s close confidante.
Lobov was paid a significant sum of money for his assistance.
The figure may have been as much as US$900 million.
It is also clear that Aum received significant assistance from
various Russian intelligence services, according to “Vitaly Savitsky,
head of the Russian Duma’s religious affairs committee.”[x]
Aum’s intelligence connections also extended to Toshio Yamaguchi,
head of Japan’s foreign intelligence service - and allegedly a Soka
the real question is do powerful Tesla-type earthquake weapons really
exist? According to conventional
scientific wisdom, the answer is a categorical no.
Yet, there are many who harbour simmering doubts, and still
others who maintain that “conventional wisdom” inside the scientific
community merely reflects a mind-set rusted closed by prolonged conservative
this, electromagnetic pulse and plasma weapon R & D is rapidly
occurring behind the misnomer of “Non Lethality,” and clearly parallel
Tesla’s work. Major US
defence contractors and leading government weapon research laboratories
are intensely interested in “Directed Energy Weapons (DEW).”
Research includes “Radio Frequency and Particle Beam Weapons,”
“Air and Space Based Directed Energy Weapons,” and, among many others,
“DEW Weapons Effects on Personnel.”[xi]
Of interest too, is a paper written by Australian defence analyst,
Carlo Kopp, which outlines in considerable detail an “Electromagnetic
Bomb.” The “E-Bomb,”
Kopp says, has the ability to inflict damage “… not unlike the experience
through exposure to close proximity lightning strikes.”[xii]
In a broadcast dated 27 February 1996, Beijing radio outlined
advances in particle beam energy technology and alluded to a “weapon
even more powerful than the ‘death ray.’”
The broadcast likened the weapon to a “Thunderbolt,” adding
that the moment it struck it’s target (vaporising it), a temperature
of 8000 degrees Celsius would be produced.[xiii]
Not least are the comments of Boris Belitsky, a leading Russian
Science and Engineering correspondent, broadcast on Voice of Russia,
24 February 1997. Belitsky
in replying to a question on Russian military applications of microwave
generators, stated “they can be used to fire a plasmoid, that is,
a blob of plasma…”[xiv]
the uncanny similarity of these latter-day lightning and directed
energy weapons to his own published research almost 100 years ago,
the name Tesla remains unuttered.
Tesla, clearly has become an Orwellian “non person” in the
scientific and weapon research community.
His classified research papers, however, may well have been
dusted down and quietly re-cycled?
brief foray into the literature of Tesla reveal an ingenious inventor
years ahead of his time. Born
in Serbo-Croatia in the former Yugoslavia, Nikola Tesla settled in
the USA where he received citizenship.
Today, his work - at least that part which is not hidden under
national security wraps - is undergoing a marked, although unofficial
revival. He is belatedly
credited with the discovery of alternating AC/DC currents, fluorescent
lighting, free energy and remote-controlled robots.
However, his inquiring mind carried him into far wider realms.
the late 1890’s, Tesla built a “lightning bolt machine” at Shoreham,
Long Island, NY. Funding
for the project, dubbed “Wydenclyffe” was provided by banker-entrepreneur,
J. P. Morgan. The construction
consisted of an enormous 187 foot high tower, capped by a 55 ton,
68 foot metal dome. Tesla
was confident his machine would work as envisaged - following previous
experiments in Colorado where he had accidentally destroyed the generating
station at Colorado Spring’s Electric Company.
US Army Colonel and missile specialist, T. E. Bearden, credits Tesla
with the invention of what he calls the “Tesla Howitzer.”
This, Bearden maintains was able to transmit electric energy
over vast distances wire-lessly.
Tesla himself argued that this device could destroy entire
armies and thousands of airplanes at a distance of hundreds of miles.[xv]
It is this device, using Scalar waves, that lays at the heart
of discussions of an earthquake weapon.
Bearden’s work, however, is generally regarded as being theoretical
rather than practical. Non-the-less, Tesla claimed his inventions were not only possible
but fairly straight-forward.
The fact that many of his more exotic weapons concepts arose
at the turn of the last century is, of course, remarkable.
Nor should we loose sight of the fact - which I have repeated
because of its significance - that his work papers remain veiled behind
US national security classification.
such weapons do, indeed, exist, and covert testing is taking place
- as cited by Archipelago journalists and others tracking this story-
then we would expect solid evidence of unusual earthquakes and related
events to surface. The Kobe earthquake, though interesting, must be viewed with
caution. Aum guru Asahara’s
prediction could just as easily be predicated on known geological
forecasting. This rationale,
however, does not appear to fit the facts regarding a large number
of powerful quakes and other curious energy events that peppered Western
Australia over the last few years.
WEAPON TESTING IN THE OUTBACK?
1995, British born Geologist/Geophysicist, Harry Mason, stumbled across
a strange, unaccountable earthquake which rumbled across the vast
open spaces of Western Australia two years earlier.
The event took place at 11.03 p.m., on 28 May 1993 with an
epi-centre close to Banjawarn sheep station in the Leonora-Laverton
area - North-west of Perth. The event registered 3.7 on the Richter scale and was assumed
to have been the first ever recorded quake in that part of Australia.
Mason, who was very familiar with the region and it’s geological
composition, was intrigued. Initially believing the tremor was the result of a meteorite
impact, he set about gathering detailed data.[xvi]
reported sighting a fireball trailing across the sky just minutes
before the subsequent tremor.
This was followed by a bright blue flash and shortly afterwards,
by an earth tremor measuring 3.7 on the Richter scale.
Shortly following this a “large hemisphere of orange light,
lined with a silverish glow, rose above the apparent blast site.”[xvii]
Extraordinarily, the dome of light remained in place for two
hours, and then rapidly vanished like “someone turning off a switch.”[xviii]
interviews soon revealed to Mason, a number of major inconsistencies
with his meteorite theory. For
one thing the object was heard before it arrived overhead and clearly
was moving at a sub-sonic speed.
Aware that meteorites generally have entry speeds of around
25,000 mph, Mason was bemused. In addition the object gave of “no sparks or other drop off
fragments, and appeared to arc up over the observers before seeming
to plunge down to the North.”[xix]
Moreover, the fireball emitted “a fiery spherical white-blue-yellow
light…” and “…flew at relatively low altitude,” and “emitted a regular
pulsed swooshing roar” similar to a Diesel freight train engine roar[xx]
Some witnesses told Mason they thought they had observed a
jumbo jet or plane crash. Subsequent
flights over the estimated impact site revealed no crater or blast
his detailed investigation continued, Mason became increasingly convinced
that the Banjawarn event was not a meteor.[xxi]
In time, his thoughts increasingly turned towards the peculiar
group that had purchased the Banjawarn sheep station in late April
of Aum Shinrikyo had first arrived at the station in early April 1993
and commenced negotiations to buy the property five weeks before the
powerful quake. By May
1993, four other Aum members, including a nuclear physicist arrived
on site. By September
1993, Guru Shoko Asahara, arrived with his entourage and remained
for a few weeks. Throughout,
a series of unusual geological investigations by Aum scientists in,
and around Banjawarn, were undertaken.
involved the curious activities of Aum’s chief arms dealer, Kiyode
Hayakawa. Visiting Banjawarn
station, he set about conducting extensive electromagnetic tests with
electronic probes. The
data he accumulated was fed into a laptop computer.
Hayakawa remains central to the story.
He had extraordinarily good contacts in Russia, travelling
there no less than 21 times and repeatedly meeting with the chief
of Russia’s Security Council.
It was Hayakawa who decided to purchase the sheep station,
just days prior to the energy event and subsequent ground tremor.
researching part in the Aum story, journalist Jack Amano, is convinced
that Hayakawa’s sojourns to Russia reaped rewards: “Aum’s Russian
scientists had provided detailed designs and the theoretical grounding
to develop a technology more powerful even than the ultimate weapon
predicted by Asahara.”[xxii]
Not least in the Aum efforts, was the acquisition of related
US weapons data obtained by hacking into “sensitive US databases.”[xxiii]
This, with the aid of Japanese government funding, Russian
technological know-how and advanced equipment provided by major Japanese
transnational corporations, a terrifyingly powerful super-weapon was
being constructed in secret.
Geologist, Harry Mason, was gathering information that made him pause
for thought. Intriguingly,
just a few kilometres from Banjawarn, is a military facility located
at Laverton. Mason says
that press photo’s of this facility “are identical”[xxiv]
to the Alaskan HAARP (High-frequency Active Aural Research Project)
programme. HAARP has
received intense media speculation in recent years, due to its Tesla-like
research programme. In
an early, detailed essay, Mason concludes “One is certainly left with
the impression that someone has been utilising the Leonora-Laverton
region as their own private testing ground.”[xxv]
In a private telephone conversation with the US Senate Investigations
Chief Council, Dan Gerber, Mason was told that Aum had “developed”
nuclear bombs and were thought to be conducting a “crash” programme
to build an “Earthquake Inducing Weapon.”[xxvi]
he continued his research, Mason began to gather a significant amount
of additional data relating to what he terms “beam events.”
These are bright beams of light that hang suspended from the
sky, often for prolonged periods.
He states that these include “orange beams, small bright white
lights and vivid blue-white energy discharges” in the more uninhabited
regions of Australia. These
also include observations of “diffuse orange energy ‘cylinders’ coming
down and striking the ground, whilst clouds overhead light up with
exotic colours.” These
beams, some experts believe, are a clear “signature” of Scalar wave
weapons. In addition
there have been other unexplained “fireball” events - notably a 1st
May 1995 explosion above Perth, estimated to have been in excess of
1 megaton of TNT energy equivalence.
NAVY TO THE RESCUE?
investigation by Mason centred on the South East Great Sandy Desert
of Western Australia. An
area unknown for earthquake activity until 1970, an amazing 173 tremors
measuring between 3-0 on the Richter scale occurred between 1970-3,
with the majority between March and early October 1970.
The epi-centres of these events are spaced exactly 10 kilometres
apart, along “8 lines each 50-70 km long.
Several similar events have occurred subsequently.
With the present figure standing at 246 (through 1995), Mason
concludes they are “abnormally regular,” and believes Australia is
being surreptitiously used as a testing ground for advanced “scalar
E/M weapons exercises. Originally, Mason thought these tests may have been of Russian
KGB - or more probably French origin.”[xxvii]
However, recent data points to Scalar EM weapon tests conducted
from the top secret US Navy Exmouth Peninsula Tx facility.[xxviii]
The US Navy connection is intriguing.
was the US Navy who were responsible for Project “Prime Argus” - a
precursor programme to HAARP.
Argus was responsible for exploding three atomic bombs in the
Van Allen belts and, thereafter monitoring the resultant effects.
Researchers who have recently investigated the son of Argus,
project HAARP, maintain this is an advanced weapon system capable
of acting as an impenetrable planetary-wide missile shield.”[xxix]
Behind the construction of HAARP lay the scientific patents
of Bernard J. Eastlund. Previously
classified as Secret, Eastlund’s patents are now partly available
for inspection. They
are revealing for the sheer scope of what the HAARP project may be
capable of, including “weather modification.”
Eastlund had in fact used much of Tesla’s work to arrive at
his concepts, a fact he openly acknowledged.
Moreover, the original Prime Argus project was also concerned
with looking “at ways to cause earthquakes.”[xxx]
Tesla’s earthquake inducing devices, and other terrifying weapons
of mass destruction are being secretly tested by the major powers
is, so far, unproved. But
the fact remains that serious military research demonstrates these
are within grasp. Who
knows, they may even have been grasped - considering the 100 year
lead-time of Tesla’s inventions?.
Those of us closeted outside the secret world of weapons research
are left to squint and speculate.
that can mimic cataclysmic natural disasters open a Pandora’s box
of deniability, and are, therefore, of great value in today’s “I didn’t
do it” doctrine of political survival.
The fact that Aum did acquire significant advanced weapons
from Russia, and that Japan is presently re-militarising itself as
part of the “China containment” strategy must be of concern - even
disregarding the dark visions of the prophet Nichiren and his festering
adherents inside Soka Gakkai and the Japanese military, industrial
and intelligence complex.
one cannot disregard the EM weapon advances of the US, nor forget
the touted joint US-Soviet-Japanese missile shield, which might easily
switch from defensive to offensive posture?
If we are on the brink of a new class of weapons so terrifying
in their destructive potential that they prompted Kruschev to sound
his warning 36 years ago, should not the public at least be permitted
knowledge of what is being done in their name and with their tax dollars?
Apparently not. As
ever, Joe and Jane citizen are to be left blinking in ignorance -
a fact their masters regard as “blissful” - as they are Goose-stepped
into a brave new world.
one experiment in 1896, Tesla accidentally triggered an earthquake
across a dozen New York city blocks. This,
Tesla later said, was caused “by a little piece of apparatus you could
slip in your pocket.” As
local police stormed his lab, the wily inventor lifted a sledge-hammer
and smashed the oscillator to pieces, bringing an end to the pandemonium.[xxxi]
one simple act of common-sense wouldn’t go amiss today.
[i] I am indebted to Yoichi Clark
Shimatsu for patiently guiding me through the subtleties of the
Aum story. Yoichi
- the former general editor of Japan Weekly Times - together
with a small band of dedicated journalists have investigated the
Aum Shinrikyo story in great detail.
Those interested can find in-depth articles posted on their
website “Archipelago (www.pelago.com).”
I have to say that the Archipelago team are virtually alone
among the Japanese media to courageously unravel the Aum story.
This has resulted in the team members of Archipelago suffering
genuine threats on their lives and necessitated being kitted-out
in body armour and assigned unofficial police guards to protect
them. Such dedication
is rare and itself should not go unreported.

relationship to SG and the 100 year war doctrine.
During WW11, right wing Japanese militarists loyal to Nichiren’s
teachings, occupied China and established the puppet state “Manchukuo.”
This was to be a staging ground for the larger cataclysmic
global war. It was
here that Lt. General Shiro Ishii of the notorious Unit 731, developed
a leading edge in Biological Warfare.
Using captured POW’s as test subjects, Ishii and his team
were responsible for some of the most abhorrent human experiments
ever recorded. A
key figure during this period was Kanji Ishihara.
A right wing military strategist, Ishihara predicted that
the final war would be fought with future “weapons from the laboratory.”
However, Allied victory in WW11 ensured that Japanese militarism
ground to a halt, and potential developments of sophisticated
weapons were outlawed. Nichiren’s
cataclysmic doctrine, however, was not forgotten.

Significantly, Belitzky ruled out the possibility that these weapons
are mere bluff: “This is evident if only from the fact that a
few years ago, at the Russian-American summit in Vancouver, the
Russians proposed a joint experiment in testing such generators
- or plasma weapons…” The
proposal was called the “Vancouver to Vladivostok (V2) Initiative.”
Similarly, an October 1996 government announcement stated
that Russia would join with Japan in the creation of a joint ballistic
missile system to balance Chinese regional power.
This system would, eventually, be linked to the US HAARP
programme in Alaska.
