How does your WM method
2. What is your experience
The majority of modified weather events lasting 1 - 3 days in duration now total more than 200 (as at mid-1999) in number. There have been fewer trials of longer duration (weeks | months) performed to date - about five so far (at mid-1999) - but sufficient to consider long term WM viable and deserving more attention. In this regard, Aotearoa NZ is an ideal "laboratory" for long term experiments because of volatile weather resulting from its shape and location. Given these conditions, generating and prolonging drought is more difficult and takes longer than the process of terminating it. But knowledge about WM dynamics has been of greater value.
Overseas experience has shown that the technology is essentially unaffected by geographic or climatic variation. Remote (long distance) WM trials involving target areas at distances of 1,000 kms or more, have been successful. With appropriate ancillary resources (a) the distance or area may be significantly increased (b) an altered weather pattern may be sustained for several months, or longer, if required.
Another innovative application that is gradually being refined is that of "multi-tasking". This means that a number of WM projects may be initiated and managed at the same time. The first publicized demonstration was in December 2002 while TWM was involved with both the Louis Vuitton series in Auckland, Aotearoa NZ and the bushfires in New South Wales, Australia. Trialing was held over several years and mainly confined to various parts of Aotearoa NZ.
Relative to other WM (cloud seeding) services, TWM is capable of generating a wide range of modified weather events with greater accuracy. This is possible because it operates at a fundamental level of physical manifestation.
Yes. The method evolved from early experience with "non-local or distant healing". There has been some experimentation with other applications but the emphasis is on fully developing the potential of WM.
Consciousness as an
active agent in
the establishment of physical reality is receiving considerable
from some of the world's prestigious scientific
institutions. It has been claimed, despite impressive achievements
by materialist, mechanistic science, that the most important
scientific endeavour will be the "science
of the subjective" or "science of
awareness has been part of Indigenous knowledge systems for a very long
time. Ancient traditions such as in India and China (the world's two
Indigenous groups) have indicated that the "ultimate" technology is not
external, local, or physical but ubiquitous, non-local and
Furthermore, an individualised aspect (human consciousness) fully aware of this field as itself is capable of displaying (see holographic paradigm) similar creative-destructive abilities. Such an individual could be described as a "knower of the Field". In most cases however, whether these abilities are actualized is uncertain without dedicated application.
4. Any connection between
and a weather change is just coincidence.
The same claim could also be directed at weather
as a predictive method. Because of its esoteric-occult- indigenous
forecasting has been reinvented as a western scientific method
and is now regarded as a respectable vocation and indispensable to the
efficient management of modern society. Whether Indigenous weather
achieves similar recognition remains to be seen.
In brief, if TWM's achievements are due to coincidence then, logically, the same applies to forecasting. As far as TWM activities are concerned, synchronicity, rather than coincidence, is a more credible interpretation of the process.
Note also that the TWM method is a version of Indigenous WM traditions (see 18. below) with a long history of success. To suggest coincidence as the basis of a methodology | technology that has been used repeatedly for thousands of years by various Indigenous practitioners, is both superficial and misguided.
Water dowsing | divining is another methodology derived from ancient traditions that sceptics have described as "unscientific", lacking credibility, and its achievements dismissed as coincidence. A recent government sponsored program to test dowsing completely demolishes these arguments with impressive field studies and impeccable research. It has established that dowsing does work but is unable to explain how or why. If a similar study of Indigenous WM methods was conducted, one could reasonably expect results and conclusions which parallel those of dowsing.
5. Why should anyone
Therefore, any belief based on ignorance, including belief in outmoded paradigms, is of little value compared with knowledge derived from experience. For example, the materialist reductionist scientific paradigm was undermined by Einstein nearly 100 years ago and yet the majority of people, notably in the West, continue to live as though nothing has changed. This suggests a regression into a Dark Age mindset based on superstition and habit rather than an enlightened decision to embrace a more subtle and complex worldview resulting from the discoveries of quantum physics and the new sciences.
One important and indisputable fact is that since 1992 not one local institution, affected by weather disasters, has chosen to examine and test TWM's claims by accepting its offer of assistance. Instead, each has ignored TWM and | or resorted to wasteful, inefficient, conventional methods with little success. The usual result is that after unnecessary delay, cost and inconvenience the problem has been resolved by a weather change which is exactly what TWM was offering about $100-500 million earlier. Such mind-numbing prodigality is unjustified and the decision-makers involved should be made accountable.
Perhaps, the real reason for Pakeha institutional resistance is political-racial rather than economic-scientific. Acknowledging TWM's expertise may imply serious deficiencies in the facade of Pakeha omnipotence and that could be fatal for the continued maintenance of its colonial structures and belief | control systems.
Indigenous weather modification is no more incredible than the implications of scientific research in psychokinetic phenomena or scalar electromagnetics and many other fields. It would be advisable therefore, to review Clarke's Laws. Public scepticism regarding Indigenous weather modification is due to the fact that, for centuries, developed (European) nations have deliberately ignored or denigrated Indigenous knowledge systems (IKS) and traditional ecological knowledge (TEK). This policy and practice continues today.
Ironically, these same nations now encourage academic and corporate interests to pirate IKS and TEK before international recognition of Indigenous ownership of that knowledge is formalized. Clearly, in such cases, credibility of Indigenous knowledge is not a major issue compared with the economic benefits to be gained through ownership of patent rights. Having initially exploited the physical resources of Indigenous peoples, they are now colonizing their intellectual and cultural resources and, what is worse, presenting these as their own. An example of the assimilation of indigenous concepts | knowledge by mainstream Western thought is the "New Science-Physics" paradigm which proposes an extraordinary, complex, non-mechanistic and "mystical" reality. This is a radical departure from the narrow mechanistic scientific model that has prevailed for centuries.
Perhaps, as a result of changing attitudes to the value of Indigenous knowledge, underscored by increasing weather disaster costs, serious consideration of TWM’s expertise in weather modification will develop. This inspiring story about Dr Graeme Mather, a WM pioneer (cloud seeding), may serve as an example of what one persistent and courageous individual is able to achieve despite the scepticism of others.
6. Can you prove that your
The only real proof, in a relative sense, is in first-hand experience of tangible events in the field. One example of a WM technology that was initially controversial is cloud seeding which eventually gained acceptance as a result of successful field trials in the USA and elsewhere. To date there is still some debate about cloud seeding as a "proven" method of WM.
there are those who insist on "scientific
proof" or peer-reviewed documentation of TWM technology as the only
method of assessment. This desire to assert absolute
authority and control by Western institutions (a kind of
could be interpreted as a violation of
It must be pointed out that Indigenous WM traditions existed many millennia before Western science was conceived and that they continue to be practised today. [This 1998 report of the huge Amazon forest fire describes how it was successfully extinguished by only two Indian shamans in a few hours. Contrast this with months of frustrated effort by hundreds of fire fighters with modern support services. Note that the Brazilian authorities employed the shamans without demanding "scientific proof" of their expertise - a wise decision that produced results much more efficiently and economically than by orthodox methods.]
Why is this type of WM not widely
or publicized? Cultural bias (with the
exception of Brazil) appears to be a common reason. For those who may
interested, the nature of cultural bias is discussed by a Nobel-prize
physicist regarding the attitude of
science to parapsychology.
Until progress towards transformation of business and political values becomes universal practice, the above policy will remain unchanged. If requested, TWM will help to avert weather disasters and demonstration trials as part of contractual obligations for drought mitigation or water supply augmentation will be the only exception to policy at this stage.
8. What WM services are
9. What are the dangers of
Usually associated with this question is the concern that TWM endangers or creates negative atmospheric effects in other parts of the world. The short answer is, everything affects global weather. To single out one from an infinite number of contributing factors strains credibility. To put it in context, the global economy must avoid using fossil fuels, all air, land and sea transport cease functioning, etc., etc., before one can even begin to quantify the effects of WM. The whole system must be considered.
Admittedly the potential negative effects, namely weather warfare, are considerable. This is acknowledged by certain government | military | corporate groups who regard WM as a legitimate element of military strategy. One group refers to it as, "Owning the weather in 2025 AD".
10. What are the benefits
of TWM services?
TWM however, is capable of operating in any situation and has been modifying weather systems for two decades. This capability is available to all developing economies which are relatively more vulnerable than those in developed countries. The range of weather disasters that are generally experienced can be prevented or mitigated on a scale and in a manner that has not yet been achieved by other WM services.
The benefits to weather-dependent businesses such as agriculture, commodity markets, bulk water supply and hydro power generation are, at least, equal to those presently obtained through weather forecasting. The crucial difference is that TWM is able to produce weather events that were not anticipated by forecasting services and also to reverse or alter events that were already predicted. This does not diminish the valuable role of forecasting. It is intended to highlight the potential advantages and positive contribution that TWM can bring to sustainable development.
11. What are the
of your technique?
It is becoming apparent that, in a world where water is rapidly becoming the most important resource, more important than oil, any WM technology that can efficiently meet demand will be the dominant economic activity of the 21st-century. TWM is well-positioned to service that market once governments and entrepreneurial water-related businesses realize the benefits that can accrue from participating in bilateral arrangements. Enquiries are welcome.
Regarding the issue of legal
liability. It is not an issue for TWM. The "technique" is
essentially natural and, compared with
cloud seeding which injects particles into cloud systems, leaves no
physical evidence of human intervention. The only distinctive
is the timely and congruent nature of a weather event, as demonstrated
during the America's Cup projects and
The issue for observers | researchers | lawyers is that of isolating the TWM component from a range of other possible causes. Acquiring tangible proof of a direct link between intent, action and outcome is basically a statistical exercise necessitating TWM input. (See 4. and 6. above)
How ironic that what may be a possible disadvantage in one context (eg. prove that the method works) may also become a distinct advantage in another (eg. prove that the method was used for weather warfare).
12. What are the military
Comprised of consciousness, energy |
and unlimited access to atmospheric resources, Indigenous WM is an
"force multiplier". It is seamlessly integrated into existing weather
and unless one has prior knowledge of the intended event(s), it
is difficult to distinguish modified phenomena from those derived from
"random" natural processes. The current spate of global
weather disasters illustrates its potential as the penultimate
Is it a weapon of mass destruction? If in doubt, check out the most destructive hurricane to hit the USA in recent times.
Another application, adapted to more precise surgical functions, is related to long distance Qi experiments in China with saline and glucose solutions, regarded as critical to the physiological functions of the human body. Demonstrations of structural changes of the test solutions, as indicated by their Raman spectra, were successful. What this means is that one can affect the well-being of any individual through the application of Qi and consciousness. As a reverse form of "non-local or distant healing" (see 3. above) it may be used to incapacitate key persons virtually anywhere in the world. An extreme example of this, from Maori esoteric lore, is the practice of makutu.

The attacks against the WTC and Pentagon, on 11 September 2001, have been cited as an example of "fourth generation" warfare. This concept may be further extended by the application of human consciousness interfacing with the quantum vacuum or Zero-Point field and manipulating natural forces. WM is just one facet of this revolutionary quantum technology- weaponry. One probable scenario of future warfare will involve highly advanced individuals using low tech methods with high tech capacities. A crucial advantage that these psychic, or psycho-spiritual "warriors" have over conventional methods is their ability to circumvent the usual defence and intelligence systems that are employed by nation states. Call it "fourth density" (higher dimensional) warfare.TWM affirms that military applications will be used only for defense purposes as well as protect Human and | or Indigenous rights. This does not necessarily preclude the possibility of "pre-emptive strikes" as defined by the Bush doctrine.
Consciousness and deep knowledge of its transcendent nature and application is the pathway to real personal liberation, empowerment and unlimited creative-destructive ability latent within each individual. Few, however, are prepared to make that journey and it is that choice which separates the intrepid explorer from the masses who prefer to remain apathetic, ignorant, vulnerable and enslaved.
13. What limits are there
method of long distance WM?
Relate this development to the TWM method and world wide WM coverage via a combination of computer-Internet-remote sensing technologies is a distinct possibility. This application has been successfully tested during the America's Cup 2000 and 2003 series in Auckland. More recently, in December 2002, it was used to avert the imminent destruction of Sydney's inner suburbs by firestorms (Distance - over 2,000 km). See 2. above. These and other examples indicate that the method is successful over distances of up to 2,000 kms and global application should, in time, become standard practice. To date, all major WM projects have been managed from Auckland.
Long distance (remote) WM enables changes to be made to local weather conditions within nation-states from outside their territorial borders. It is one factor that members of the World Trade Organization will need to consider regarding the negative effects of their "globalization" agenda on developing nations and indigenous peoples. Where the current planetary reality is one of rapid and unpredictable social, environmental crises and everything is inter-connected, the repercussions are guaranteed to be catastrophic.
14. What response have you
your web site?
It's interesting to note that the majority of positive
and supportive responses have been from private individuals from
overseas countries. In
they seem to indicate a widespread acceptance of Indigenous knowledge
as a valid source of information about the world in which we live.
Attention should be drawn to the striking contrast between the negative attitudes of Pakeha (European) institutions in Aotearoa NZ, Australia, Canada, USA (see 15 below) and positive recognition by institutions from several indigenous nation states such as China and India. Since the latter two represent one third of the global population, TWM regards it as vindication of its vision of developing a technology that may well provide a solution to the climate change crisis.
15. Why do you call it
But the fact is that this type of WM is not regarded as publicly accepted practice in Western(ized) societies, as deduced from negative experiences in communications with institutions in Aotearoa NZ, USA, Canada, and Australia. Each of these countries was a signatory to Agenda 21at the Rio Earth Summit of 1992 and committed to supporting | empowering Indigenous peoples. Nevertheless, each has a history of European colonization and oppression of native inhabitants and to expect them to transcend collective prejudice was being too optimistic.
The UN and
agencies have displayed similar attitudes regarding the status of
peoples. One example is that most Indigenes with WM traditions have
excluded as signatories to the UN convention on the prohibition of
or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques.
16. Any WM laws,
regulations in New
Any law or regulation concerning WM must take into account the Treaty of Waitangi and the concept of tino rangatiratanga. Any action by central or local authorities to regulate Indigenous WM would be seen as one more attempt by non-indigenous Pakeha (European) to reinforce colonization and further limit Maori autonomy. In addition, according to at least one credible source, Parliament | Government is "constitutionally illegal and has no further authority to govern". That being the case, the only institutions with any legitimate claim to "constitutional sovereignty" are traditional indigenous (Maori) entities.
Therefore, any Pakeha government claim to ownership and control of the atmosphere (as well as other natural resources) is illegitimate, lacks substance and will be contested. In comparison, TWM has an established track record and can demonstrate that it not only has a Treaty right but also the capacity to "own" and "control" atmospheric resources. It is significant that this is the only remaining major natural resource over which Maori are able to exercise tino rangatiratanga-without being compromised or marginalized, as is common practice, by Pakeha interest groups or government. In fact, as far as weather is concerned, the reverse applies.
It may be necessary, if government persists with its covert agenda of relegating Maori to the status of just one of several "ethnic minorities" instead of Treaty partner, to apply more forceful methods of "lobbying" including weather manipulation. Since government has no defence capability in this area (see also 12. above), it should consider very carefully the consequences of such a policy.
17. How does TWM compare
types of WM?
As cloud seeding is currently the most popular form of conventional WM, further comparison with the TWM method may be instructive. Apart from its considerable advantage in being able to operate in any situation there are other factors which make TWM more attractive. These are: simplicity, functionality, integration, holism, adaptability, and sustainability.
Regarding other Indigenous WM methods. At a deeper level there is no difference, although outwardly in terms of observable customs, rituals or ceremonies, they may appear to be so.
18. Are there others who
may be working
on traditional WM methods?
There is a danger however, that the rich potential of their highly sophisticated traditions is being subverted or colonized by Western business-military-political-scientific organizations. It is an established fact these entities have, either separately or in combination, pirated Indigenous intellectual | cultural resources and attempted to suppress potential threats to their drive for hegemony in the evolving global "knowledge economy".
As part of its campaign to counter this
devious and insidious
conspiracy, TWM offers support to Indigenous peoples who may wish to
| regenerate their WM traditions.
