Thrive-The Trailer

This short trailer raises more questions than it answers and I will be watching the whole film when it is released on 11/11/11.

Here's the blurb:

"THRIVE lifts the veil on what's REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream -- uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future"

The industry I have worked in for over 20 years is accused of trashing or eradicating potential new energy sources. Their biggest problem with these new sources? They are free.

Big Oil & Gas is worth trillions. It employs millions. And just about all of us need its products. Looking around my office, I can see that every thing in it has either used oil (or its derivatives) to be manufactured or transported so that I can use it. A highly useful substance, is oil.

We would not have made the progress we did make in the last 150 years without it. No question about that at all.

But is there something better, cleaner, cheaper?

The film will tell us in October. Keep an eye out for it.

I have a stake in the status quo. I really need the O&G industry to thrive itself for the next 15-20 years until I retire. It has provided a good living. It keeps a roof over my head, it puts food on the table, it has educated one of my sons, and it will soon be paying for my youngest sons education. As an aside, it has transported me to over 75 countries and has enriched my life in ways I cannot count.

It has been an adventure. Perhaps selfishly, I do not want that adventure to stop just yet, but I love change. I know that we have made some fantastic discoveries in the last several hundred years, and oil allowed us to do that: it allowed us to travel to the stars, and to the depths of the deepest oceans. It plays a part in almost everyones life every single day, yet I hope I am around to see the new sources of energy carry my kids, their kids, and their kids forward into a bright new future.

That's always assuming, of course, that the much discussed X Class Flare doesn't mess us up too much. Note that most of the worlds leadership are hiding away for the next five to seven days. What do they know that they aren't sharing with us peons?

As with everything else, time will tell.

Stay safe.

well done mr ranty look forward to the vid! also my friend have you heard anything about david noakes from the web site is up to lately as all has gone quiet at the moment and he seems a good chap

Captain Ranty said...

Thanks James.

Heard nothing from David Noakes. Very odd. You'd think he'd be salivating (like I am) at the imminent death of the EuroZone.

My bullsh1t detector is permanently set to eleven and phrases like, 'empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies' send the needle way into the red zone. I going to call this now - it's bullsh1t. I'll bet this is from the same stable as the Venus Project.

The geometric shape is a cubeoctahedron. The physicist briefly featured, Nassim Haramein, has produced a unified field theory based on the idea that vaccum in space is sething with colossal quantities of energy which is in equilibrium (A word Princes of the Divine Secret will recognise). The basic shape of this energy in equilibrium is the aforementioned cubeoctahedron.

The vid has lots of feel good stuff, taps into people's genuine concerns, some credible contributors and a good few known charlatans thrown in the mix. In short, like all good propaganda, the poison is conduited by the good stuff.

Here is the test. In a few weeks time will these people be offering to sell you a gizmo which will produce clean, free, limitless home energy for a few grand outlay?
Or will they want you to go and live in a yurt, wear clothes made out of lentils, and sing Kumbaya while you wait for the return of the Annanuki?

My guess is it will be closer to the second proposition. Any takers?

Thanks for the link. Watching now.

Probably an accurate prediction but I will reserve judgement until I have seen it all.

Interesting trailer.

My thoughts are on the same lines as Twisted Root's comment above. I don't want to come across as being relentlessly negative about these sorts of things, but there is sufficient stuff here to be wary of IMO. The case can be made that this is yet more propaganda.

For example:
Foster Gamble is apparently a descendant of James Gamble, of Procter & Gamble megacorp fame. Back in the 80s he was one of several wealthy "heirs of industry" who funded the (failed) congressional campaign of NWO globalist James Garrison, who, as president of the Gorbachev Foundation, came out with this gem:

"We are going to end up with world government. It's inevitable ... There's going to be conflict, coercion and consensus. That's all part of what will be required as we give birth to the first global civilization."

And I see that we have the involvement of, for example, well known new age occultists & Club of Rome associates like Barbara Marx Hubbard; she of the "destructive one fourth must be eliminated from the social body...we are in charge of God's selection process for planet Earth" line of thought.

And then there's the usual symbolism to be found; not least the poster but in the trailer itself. There is a HQ version of the poster which supposedly has a dollar bill reflected in the eyeball, though I have yet to see this picture myself. (That could be interpreted several ways if true, however.)

These sort of things usually contain elements of truth, so as hook in those who are finding out such things. Yet it is the rest that one must take care with. Grains of truth slipped out? A solution being provided? Sounds like the familiar disinfo, priming & programming, preparing for something... Needs further investigation at the very least. Well produced, isn't it? ;)

I always stand to be corrected on these sort of things, but my default position is "trust no one"...

I nlotice F Gamble is surrounded by mighty fine things in his life...probably going to profit from this says my inner sense...will there be a world left by then I wonder, the sunspot that I warned about is to be joined by an even bigger one on or around the 27th...thanks for the linky m8!

Heard it all before. " Oh, Bussards Polywell Fusor will give us all free power" except it doesn't work. "Cold fusion is here" except it doesn't work. "We can run cars on water if only the wonder gigit hadn't been stolen by the evil oil companies" except the gigit didn't work.
In the sixties, you decoked the car every 20 thousand miles; I can't remember when I last did that. Why? Because the evil oil companies refined oils and fuels to such a high degree that they dont leave deposits in your engine like they used to. You're welcome.
(38 years in Petrochem here)
This movie is yet more unicorn magic and fairy dust bullshit from the anti industrial losers. Tell you what assholes, you go live in a cave and die old at 40, leave me out of it.

Sadly I reckon news stuff, really new stuff, just appears out of nowhere no trailers, no fanfare, no pr.

Rather like the Climategate e-mails. Whoever released them did a much better job than a certain swede.

James Higham said...

The very first thing which worried me were the Them colours - the muted blues, pinks and yellows, then the look of those two sitting there.

Then we get to the solar flare biz and Elinin. Might be so and yesterday was pretty magnetic in the atmosphere but I don't trust it from this source. There's something going down but I think it's political rather than celestial.

FrankC said...

If the world's leadership are hiding from this X-class flare which kills the rest of us, they'll have a pretty smelly pile of corpses to get rid of. Might be the only real work they'll ever do!

I am Stan said...

Yo Capitan,

As Nick Drake said "Oh how they come and go, oh how they come goooo!" (Riverman)

They do though don`t they though "come n go" so do we, and when we go more will come!

Truly, there`s so much more to enjoy.

Love Stan

Gas and Oil has for hundreds of years held back mankind. Without it we would have the energy we needed.
The end of the word came and went when Oil (crude) replaced whale oil.(And NO, for those idiots that think it, I don't mean we go back to this)

There is and has been an alternative for thousands of years but has been demonised and banned. HEMP, and before any one states there is not enough land to produce the amounts required - DO the research and do it for yourself.
Is there anything that cannot be manufactured by hemp?
Rather look at what CAN be manufactured by hemp and while we do this ask ourselves 'What IS it we really need?' Not what do we want.
Personally I am with Twisted on this, I do believe there IS such a thing as free energy and we have it NOW.
I ask myself, 'Why wait, those in this trailer have spent masses of 'fiat' to produce this movie, they have scheduled its release and they will RAKE in millions just to tell us what we already know.
BEWARE of FALSE prophets.

Something else is about to happen and it ain't gonna come from 'without' it is coming from 'within', our own governments.

There ARE 'off worlders' out there and there are strange things happening but our single most dangerous enemy is governments around the world, it's a CLUB and we ain't in it - we are here to do the dirty work and little by little we are EATING the OIL and GAS they say we need - DON'T complain THOSE that VOTE ASKED FOR IT.

For those who are NOT active, get off your ASSES and at LEAST say or DO something, the move to oust these politician scum has been on the go for a couple of years now and still nothing - WHAT are we waiting for - To see what happens first and then DO something, because by that time it will be WAY too late.

Stop talking about football and the latest coronation st and start telling your mates you have had enough and come clean with your thoughts - we need a global conversation and we need to sanction all government finances and we need to DO it now.

Just DON'T PAY something, 'Govnmt bill' for one month, or for as long as you can get away with it and that will send a message.

Namaste, phil;

Oh you people. I know Foster personally. he's actually a nice guy, has good intent, and really does look to improve the world. He doesn't need your money, he has plenty. Nassim is a good guy too and he has some very valid ideas on free energy. Good for them. Quit bashing people, and start doing something good on the planet. The rest of those in the video, I cannot account for, some of them are quite negative people in my opinion. Nevertheless there is bits of wisdom there. I bet the movie is meant to open minds. Those of you with closed minds, move along now. Nothing to see here.
