|The pursuit of knowledge through science has a far longer history than the Hellenizing propagandists or Empire-builders have allowed us to know. Knowledge is power and in the hands of a few people it is a corrupting influence. Alchemy can also be a transforming spiritual science. Our intellect is important but it is not the only wisdom-acquiring capability we humans are in possession of. I may use the word 聭believe?or 聭think?as if my mind is fixed or closed on a particular issue but there is next to nothing which I am not open to. I attribute my love of questioning to the alchemical sage or humanist known as Socrates. The act of questioning in an open manner will lead a person who loves learning to many places. John Von Neumann seems to be a more current progeny of the sort that St. Germain was and he comes from Budapest too. The Jet Propulsion Laboratory which is so important to space exploration and black ops was founded by an alchemist or at least Jack Parsons was important to JPLs very beginnings. I am quite concerned about the usages of this knowledge in the hands of people who do not have the proper ethical training.
Origins of Alchemy:
It is fair to say that the first alchemists set out to collect ***** or plants and meteorites even before man gathered in clans for protection against other hominids and large animals long before man traveled the ocean to Flores Island at least 825 ,000 years ago.
There are many twists and turns to follow in the pursuit of knowledge and its power that has been the purpose of many secret agencies since 'his'-story began. We must look to a time even before the records of history; that extend (by way of stones and symbols) to the beginnings of man's thoughts. These beginnings did not start with language due to some God-given gift and they did not need alphabets or other form and structure such as Locke's 'tabula rasa' would have us believe. You will see the Jewish and Muslim as well as Catholic myth-makers were involved in cryptic or coded information. It is important to remember that the Islamic people didn't have as complete a 'Dark Ages' destruction of knowledge despite the efforts of Caliph Omar. Hermes Trismegistus is reckoned by many to have been the cause celebr?or namesake of Hermetics and yet Barrett (who was a social engineer with MI6) would have us believe he and his work did not exist until the Catholic Churchians had developed Hermeneutics. Talk about 'revisionist history' or Hellenized plagiarization!

Let's face it. Monitoring employees' e-mail, tracking their Internet use, logging everything done at keyboards has become the norm in Corporate America.
With computer monitoring software so cheap and easy-to-apply it's no wonder that workplace surveillance becomes more and more widespread.
Here are some figures from the 2005 Electronic Monitoring & Surveillance Survey made by American Management Association and the consulting firm ePolicy Institute:
76% of companies monitor websites their employees visit , and 65% use software to block connections to certain websites.
36% use software to log keystrokes and keep track of the time spent at keyboards. 50% store and review computer files.
55% store and review employees' email messages.
So, wherever you work, the odds of your company's keeping a keen technology-aided eye on you are pretty high. There is no such thing as privacy at the workplace , experts say. Let's not have any illusions about it. Even if you are allowed to use workplace computer at lunchtime or after work, the policy covering the use of computers and the Internet applies as well.
According to the same study, 84% companies surveyed do have rules covering personal use of email , 81% have established policies governing the Internet use. So, majority of organizations at least have set up rules for everybody to observe.
80% of organizations that monitor keystrokes and time spent at keyboards let employees know about that. 86% notify staff about email monitoring, and 89% alert workers that their Web activities are tracked. These figures show that for vast majority of employers the aim is to make workforce to comply with the rules rather than to catch somebody red-handed. The remaining 20% , 16% and 11% probably carry out clandestine monitoring. Too bad, but there is little employees can do in most such cases.
It seems odd, but under the law , in many states employers aren't obliged to warn employees about computer and or email monitoring. We may grumble it's not fair, we might protest, but that's that. At least in the vast majority of organizations monitoring is not surreptitious.
If the rules are set , the only option is to conform to them. And try not to take offense, though it is not easy. Though employers sometimes are carrying it too far, in most cases they aren't doing it out of pure malice. Company owners are protecting themselves from reputation-damaging scandals , costly workplace harassment lawsuits and data leakage.
Employers are expected to protect employees from hostility at workplaces, and they monitor, say , email messages to spot those who are sending obscene or hateful emails. Software for email monitoring costs far less than a single compensation payment in case the victim sues the firm. Lots of companies can't afford litigation; those who can, don't want it.
Even logging every keystroke can be justified if the employees are dealing with trade secrets or some other highly valuable (in a direct sense of this word) information. It doesn't necessarily imply distrust -- some companies just won't survive i.
