I got on the plane, into my seat, where an older gentleman kindly stood up to let me in after my greeting stating that I hoped he would not have to do
this again for the duration of the flight.
As we started to descend into Brisbane after the three hour crossing from NZ, I turned to that gentleman and apologized to him saying that I should
have been more communicative because as there was so much technology of screens on seat backs and headphones and choices of entertainment that this
got in the way of genuine human to human communication.
He heartily agreed and we talked about this and then he ramped up the conversation to talk about the capacity of the human to communicate, and with
that I took his lead and we were sharing information that took the frequency to yet another level. One where metaphysics and spirituality merged.
We continued to extend our stories and talk all the time and as the plane landed and came to the terminal he asked me my name and I shook hands with him
and said Tim Lynch and he replied that he was Barry McGuire. I, stunned, put my hand on my heart and said 'Thee Barry McGuire' from 'Eve of Destruction'?
The 1965 American hit that topped the charts ... and he beaming at me, said Yes!
Well that only pushed the conversation upwards and that Barry said he was going to work and sing with Aborigines and bring through some new music and
I shared with him that this was a very synchronistic meeting, because I was flying on the wrong day, on the wrong airplane and sitting in the wrong
seat. He laughed.
Then I told Barry that I had been on the Rainbow Warrior 36 hours before it went down and of my synchronistic meeting with Steve Wozniak of Apple Computer
in Red Square outside the Kremlin at 12 midnight back in 1986.
Steve had been on a peace march from Leningrad to Moscow and could not believe that I could have picked him out at that time of night. He thought I
was KGB, with bushy eyebrows and all, and that because he was the top computer tech man in the USA he might be targeted.
He was equally shocked when I then pointed out Leonard Nimoy 'Spock' of Star Trek standing 10 feet from him, who I had met in a queue at the hotel
we were staying in whom we both later conversed with. He thought this was quite surreal.
It then resulted in him also having a serendipitous meeting with a Muscovite Joseph Goldan who I had been previously that day, hanging out with and
who had been involved in a rock and roll festival 'space bridge' utilizing a satellite sitting in geo stationary orbit high up over the Bering Strait,
between Alaska and Siberia. This was the first televised rock concert initially intended to be a celebration of technology and culture, 'the US Festival'
that Steve had actually financed, that was linking San Bernadino, California to Moscow USSR.
The result was that I was able to contact Joseph and that both ends of this act of 'citizen diplomacy' were able to have coffee together the following
morning in Moscow.
Anyway, Barry and I had to part at the immigration desk so I gave him my card and we laughed in very high spirits and hugged each other then went on
After exiting the Brisbane airport I took the train up to the Sunshine coast to stay with a dear friend Pamela in Caloundra, who was having her 60th
birthday the following day.
When I told her the story of my meeting Barry McGuire she immediately started singing:
'The eastern world it is explodin', violence flarin', bullets loadin', you're old enough to kill but not for votin' with delight and passion, because
she was writing a novel and Barry's song, the Eve of Destruction was mentioned in one of her later chapters.
Well, Pam had her joyful 60th party the next day and I sat with a friend of hers Jill from NZ and the conversation came around to world events and
that NZ was still a Nuclear Free country. That is when she jumped in and mentioned the radiation cloud that was supposed to have come from Fukushima,
Japan, that was first noticed off the Australian coast at Caloundra back in early January of that year and that one was measured over Dunedin NZ -
that seemed to be an extension of that original same cloud
I said yes! I was very aware of this radiation cloud, and I had previously sent the only news article available to me in NZ - to Pam in Caloundra and
that it had irked me that radiation had entered the Southern Hemisphere. To the extent that a very good naturopath I knew had advised me on detoxing
radiation a number of days previously. She then said that she lived opposite the guy who first raised the alarm when his geiger counter spiked up to
8 microcervits back on the 8th January in 2012.
I immediately said I want to talk to him and the next day visited Peter Daley an IT specialist, who was adept at computers and monitoring certain
Peter then conveyed that things were indeed very serious and that the global media and governments world wide, including Australia and New Zealand
were playing everything down. They are censoring a huge percentage about Fukushima radiation contamination.
So much that the former Japanese Ambassador to Switzerland had broken ranks with Japanese Governmental gags and had written to the Head of the United
Nations saying that the situation is exceptionally precarious.
He said that all the worlds best brains need to come together to sort this critical challenge out and to forget about the Japanese Government having
to 'save face.'
He strongly stated that if through failure, the crippled building of reactor unit 4 with 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 100 feet (30 meters)
above the ground collapses, not only will it cause a shutdown of all six reactors but will also affect the common spent fuel pool containing 6,375
fuel rods, located some 50 meters from reactor 4. In both cases the radioactive rods are not protected by a containment vessel; dangerously, they are
open to the air.
This would certainly cause a global catastrophe like we have never before experienced. He stressed that the responsibility of Japan to the rest of
the world is immeasurable. Such a catastrophe would affect us all for centuries.
Then top spent-fuel pools expert Mr. Robert Alvarez, former Senior Policy Adviser to the Secretary and Deputy Assistant Secretary for National Security
and the Environment at the U.S. Department of Energy, was asked for an explanation of the potential impact of the 11,421 rods.
Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is
in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity.
At stake here is about 134 million curies is Cesium-137 roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the
U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP).
We may find it difficult, to appreciate the actual meaning of the figure, yet we may be able to grasp what 85 times more Cesium-137 than the Chernobyl
would mean. It could potentially destroy the world environment and our civilization. This is not rocket science, nor does it connect to the pugilistic
debate over nuclear power plants. This is an issue of human survival.
So the question that is asked, are we on the Eve of Destruction? Seriously?
What must we do, and what must the Japanese Government do?
Little did I know that I would end up running into synchronicities that would bring me to this juncture.
So, this is where we are today, NOW!
Trusting that this information does not disturb you as much as it has me.
Sincerely with Love
