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 foreign
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 values.
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 damage.
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 1993.
Representatives 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
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
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
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
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.
