The Polar Vortex: A Physical Manifestation of the "Chilling Effect" of NSA Surveillance? by David Wilcock January 23, 2014,edited version.


The cornerstone of our scientific research here at Divine Cosmos is the idea that the universe is alive and conscious. Is the Earth responding to the mass "chilling effect" of NSA surveillance with the "polar vortex" that has settled over America these last three weeks?

And if so -- is this a good thing or a bad thing? Find out in our first in-depth investigation of 2014 -- which we have already predicted will be the "Year of Disclosure".



2013 turned out to be quite a year. Quietly, without any extreme "fireworks" or epic, in-your-face sudden changes, our world has fundamentally changed.

Prior to June 2013, mass surveillance was already taking place, on a widespread level.

Our shiny new tech toys had a frightening secret -- but hardly anyone knew about it.

That will never be the case again. Every week we are learning more and more -- and there is no sign that the disclosure is going to stop.



The truth has come out -- and no one can put the genie back into the bottle.

As we're now finding out, the genie was never in the bottle to begin with.

Pandora's Box has actually been open for many years now.

We just had to physically see what came raging out of the "can of whoop-ass" -- mixing metaphors madly.




Much like gravity was working its magic long before the apple fell on Isaac Newton's head, mass surveillance was in place long before Snowden.



In fact, as you are about to see, the logo used by the US defense industry for this same mass surveillance program in 2002 was... *ahem* quite illuminating.

Up until Snowden came along, politicians were acting like everything was fine -- just business as usual.

We were taught to have a hearty laugh at anyone who believes in "conspiracy theories."

Now the "apple" has fallen -- and the public has discovered the truth about mass surveillance. History is in the making right as we speak.



Every stage of our development as a civilization has included an inevitable sense that we "know it all".



When we thought the Earth was flat, it was flat. When we thought the Sun revolved around the Earth, Galileo was sentenced to house arrest for the rest of his life for ...

Before we discovered micro-organisms, it was believed for thousands of years that most health problems co...

Furthermore, barely over 100 years ago, the President of the Royal Society of England, Lord Kelvin, proclaimed ...

Over a year after the Wright Brothers demonstrated a fully-operational flying craft, with photographic and eyewitness evidence,Scientific American magazine wrote a scathingly skeptical critique ...




Here are some other historical quotes worth thinking about -- before we discount new scientific concepts as being impossible:

"The telephone has too many shortcomings to be seriously considered as a means of communication. The device is inherently of no value to us." --- (Western Union internal memo, 1876)

"Everything that can be invented has been invented." (Charles H. Duell, commissioner, US Office of Patents, 1899)

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers." --- (Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943)

"The bomb will never go off, and I speak as an expert in explosives." -- Adm. William Leahy, U.S. Atomic Energy Project, 1945.

"Landing and moving around on the moon offer so many serious problems for human beings that it may take science another 200 years to lick them." -- Science Digest, August, 1948.

"There is no reason for any individual to have a computer in their home." --- (Ken Olsen, president, chairman and founder of Digital Equipment Corp., 1977)



There is compelling evidence that our current view of science is woefully incomplete. Once we fill in the missing pieces, we will see that the Universe is alive.

Skeptics say "there is no evidence" as a comforting, feel-good mantra -- but we now have two New York Times best-selling books with a combined total of 1,730 academic references that make the case.

A huge wealth of data points -- far too voluminous and interconnected to be dismissed -- reveal that the basic laws of quantum physics generate DNA and biological life.

It is impossible to do justice to this information in one article -- but the books and shows are available for you to survey the evidence yourself.

Rather than life existing only here on Earth, and perhaps in a few other rare and isolated places, life appears all throughout the Cosmos -- from microbial life on up through fully sentient beings like ourselves.

Furthermore, as I reveal in The Synchronicity Key, the Universe has an agenda. It is alive, it is conscious, and it has a plan for soul evolution that we all must follow.

If we overlook or ignore the plan in this "physical illusion," increasingly difficult and stressful events will occur until we become re-aligned with our true purpose.

This can be maddening, even infuriating, but at some point it makes more sense to recognize and accept what is happening rather than fighting against it.



It used to be the only way you could see me articulate the evidence was with the occasional YouTube video, or by attending a conference.

Now, in response to our ongoing economic difficulties and the need to get the message out cheaply, while still making enough to pay the bills, we have de-centralized the information.

Instead of paying 295 dollars to see a short summary of the case presented in a 16-hour weekend workshop with over 1000 slides, I am now going into far more depth on a weekly television show -- for 9.99 a month.

We have now filmed 57 richly illustrated half-hour episodes of Wisdom Teachings, my weekly television show that presents the evidence. Over 45 of them are already available for you to watch now on Gaiam TV.

You can watch it in full HD on your big-screen TV if you have a Playstation 3, or a 100-dollar Roku box -- which also lets you "unplug" from cable comp...



Up until I bought the Roku box, I was admittedly struggling to link my laptop up to the TV and make it all work. There were also some buffering problems.

Once I realized how cheap Roku was, and how perfectly it transformed Gaiam TV into a fully-functioning "metaphysical Netflix," I was admittedly astonished.

You can cancel cable, still see your favorite shows through services like Hulu Plus, subscribe to Gaiam TV, and watch it all for less than you were already paying.

Gaiam uses the same server technology as Netflix -- and I had a crystal-clear picture with no buffering the entire time I watched episodes of my own show, and many other things.

There are so many full-length titles on Gaiam TV that I would like to see that I could literally spend months exploring it -- and never be bored.

It is literally an "embarrassment of riches" -- and the content is actually worth far more than the monthly subscription cost.

Almost everyone who has made a name for themselves in metaphysics, spirituality, alternative healing, et cetera now has a presence on Gaiam TV, and it is constantly growing.



Catastrophes and cataclysms are not random. We have the ability to stop them from happening. That is one key realization that this new science teaches us.

However, until we understand that the Earth itself is alive -- as a part of the greater living Universe -- we will never grasp how we are ultimately causing these natural disasters to occur.

Natural disasters -- or so-called "Acts of God" in legal contracts -- are another way in which synchronicity manifests on a grand, worldwide scale.



The conditions on Earth are not occurring in a closed, isolated system that has no connection to us as conscious, living beings.

In fact, it's just the opposite.

If enough people in a certain area become "out of balance" in some way, the Earth will reflect that right back to us.

Whether we understand what is happening or not, the disasters are still taking place.

Catastrophic events "out there" end up mirroring, in a symbolic form, the emotional problems we are suffering "in here" -- throughout our daily lives.



The catastrophes also tell us a story through symbolism that reveals why they are happening. 

Each of the four elements in traditional astrology -- water, fire, earth and air -- has a story to tell in terms of natural disasters.

Water reflects emotion -- and particularly grief and sadness. Sudden abundances of water, such as floods and tsunamis, can occur in response to powerful, sustained sorrow in a majority of the people in that area.

Similarly, droughts can indicate an inability or unwillingness to grieve -- and to face our own pain.

Fires and volcanic eruptions can occur when there is a widespread outbreak of anger among many people in a given area.

Earthquakes can indicate a lack of "grounding" -- and an overall inability to keep ourselves stable on an emotional level.

Hurricanes and tornadoes -- explosions of air -- reflect an over-abundance of mental focus, and particularly of stress and anxiety.



Once I finally "nailed" how to present these concepts in a dramatic film, I realized that one of the most compelling and obvious examples of it was happening at the exact same time.

The "polar vortex" phenomenon that is freezing out America to an unprecedented degree is a powerful synchronicity event.

It's big, it's problematic and it's unavoidable. It's forcing us to deal with a major inconvenience -- whether we like it or not.

Flights are being delayed. Lifestyles have to be changed. The comfort and ease of our "ordinary" lives is being directly interfered with.

The problems are still happening this week as I write this article -- causing mass flight cancellations.



The emotional "temperature" of the average American, in response to "chilling" new revelations, is creating an unprecedented weather problem.



The NSA surveillance is a betrayal of the "average person" on the most fundamental level possible -- and the news is only getting worse and worse every week.

The NSA-exposing journalist Glenn Greenwald again said last week that a "Huge Number of Very Significant Stories" are still waiting to be released.

We now know that the government, or some greater and more frightening entity using government for its purposes, is intruding directly into our busy lives. 

As we just found out on January 15th, 2014, your computer doesn't even need to be connected to the Internet for the NSA to spy on its contents:



NSA Devises Radio Pathway Into Computers Not Connected to Internet

WASHINGTON — The National Security Agency has implanted software in nearly 100,000 computers around the world that allows the United States to conduct surveillance on those machines -- and can also create a digital highway for launching cyberattacks.

While most of the software is inserted by gaining access to computer networks, the N.S.A. has increasingly made use of a secret technology that enables it to enter and alter data in computers even if they are not connected to the Internet, according to N.S.A. documents, computer experts and American officials.



For most people, such a basic betrayal of trust from our so-called "authorities" is a horrible, isolating, terrifying feeling. 

They may not be ready to "make the jump" into the idea that the "New World Order" Cabal or "Illuminati" is real just yet -- but they definitely have had to confront the total loss of privacy with the NSA.

This "ugly" feeling actually has a name and a purpose.

It is an archetype -- i.e. a blueprint of consciousness that appears to be written into the "collective unconscious." 

The name of this horrible, chilling, terrifying moment in our life's journey is the Dark Night of the Soul.



As I argue in my new book The Synchronicity Key, all of us must move through these archetypes -- as a sort of basic "operating system".

The full collection of archetypes creates a story -- which Joseph Campbell called the Hero's Journey, and which is called the "Book of Life" in the Bible. 

We hunger so strongly to hear this story retold, again and again, that it is written into almost every Hollywood movie and television drama in existence. 

As I said, the top scholar who applied Campbell's archetypes to screenwriting is Christopher Vogler.

This story blueprint is so fundamental to the success of a film or TV show that you can't even get anyone to read your script if you don't use it.



At the peak of the Dark Night of the Soul, there is often a physical sensation of extreme cold in the body. As some have said,"Hell is not hot -- it is cold."

The blood withrdaws from the extremities to support the brain and nourish the internal organs as we experience trauma.

This is frequently referred to as a "chilling effect" -- and it does cause us to physically feel cold. In very extreme cases our teeth may even chatter.



This following list of clickable headlines has been arranged in chronological order.

This shows that the term "chilling effect" has been used all along to describe the Snowden revelations -- from the beginning right up through to the very recent past.

Almost every month, as this story has rolled on, you can find headlines describing the discovery of NSA surveillance as having a "chilling effect."






Let's consider the timing of the "polar vortex" that has descended upon America since the beginning of January.

A massive chill swept across most of America immediately after the holiday season. The weather front started to come in just three days after New Years' Day.


As soon as people got distracted out of the haze of holiday celebrations and back into the "real world," they began facing the fact that the NSA revelations are not going away.

The "cold sweat" settled in. 



Information like Snowden revealed about the NSA is often called "chilling", as we have now seen.

This type of shocking betrayal of trust, on the most basic level, can make your body literally feel cold.





If you have been a long-term reader of this site, then you are well aware that I posted dreams in advance of the Snowden documents revealing that "The Storm of Disclosure is About to Hit":


The above piece was dated April 27, 2013. Exactly 39 days later, on Wednesday, June 5, 2013, the PRISM documents first hit the mass consciousness.

Suddenly, everyone was confronted with a shocking new reality:


Almost every week since then, the disclosures have continued emerging.

Drip by drip, bit by bit, little by little, the story keeps getting worse... and worse... and worse.

Bear in mind that pain is useful. Your body was made to feel pain so that you know something is wrong.

The biggest problem we had before June 5, 2013, as a collective civilization, was that we didn't know something was wrong.

Now we know the truth -- but we're still not facing it and dealing with the "chilling effect" it has caused us on a collective level.

As a result, the Earth has shifted in a fundamental way -- bringing Artic air currents over the entire United States.




The term Illuminati, considered very "fringe" and nonsensical by most people less than a year ago, is now an ever-increasingly common word in the public vernacular.

Just last week, on January 15, 2014, this word again appeared in a headline on the very popular news-aggregator website



On January 3rd, the day before the "Polar Vortex" started descending over America, the Huffington Post had a very popular front-page article entitled "24 Things Millennials Need to Get Over."

Number 13 on the list -- of course -- was "The Illuminati".

This one-paragraph attempt to debunk such a staggeringly large amount of information, such as I summarized in Financial Tyranny, was so weak as to be laughably ridiculous:



24 Things Millennials Need to Get Over (#13: Illuminati Conspiracy Theories)

Although a world where Jay Z and Beyoncé are the head of The Illuminati and Blue Ivy Carter is the heir to the throne is a pretty appealing dream, millennials should just give it a rest with all the conspiracies.

If you stare at the eye above the tower long enough it isn't going to wink at you.

I could easily have hidden this book behind a paywall or sold it to a publisher, but I kept it free because this information is so vital to our survival.



Russia has truly been leading the way in groundbreaking disclosure television with high production quality and informational value.

We are seeing an irreversible trend. The truth is spreading like a wildfire -- and the Powers That Were cannot extinguish the flames.




I have no personal vendetta against the writer of the millennial-shaming Huffington Post piece. This person genuinely believes there is "nothing to see here."

It is an empowering feeling -- at least temporarily -- to declare that ugly, fearful and horrible information must not be true, and ridicule those who believe in it.

An earlier version of this same mass surveillance program was called Total Information Awareness and was run by DARPA -- the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

The DARPA logo for this mass surveillance program should look surprisingly and disturbingly familiar by now:



"Scientia Est Potentia" means "Knowledge is Power." The colorful logo visually tells you what kind of power is being sought -- and who is seeking it.

Best of all, the phrase "Scientia Est Potentia" was coined by Sir Francis Bacon -- one of the most important "Founding Fathers" of the Illuminati and Freemasonry.



The current Wikipedia entry on this program, which appeared very soon after 9/11, contains a variety of useful, provable links you can click on yourself:

Information Awareness Office – Illuminati Logo for Surveillance

The Information Awareness Office (IAO) was established by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency(DARPA) in January 2002 to bring together several DARPA projects focused on applying surveillance and information technology to track and monitor terrorists and other asymmetric threats to U.S. national security, by achieving Total Information Awareness (TIA).[4][5][6]

This was achieved by creating enormous computer databases to gather and store the personal information of everyone in the United States, including personal e-mails, social networks, credit card records, phone calls, medical records, and numerous other sources, without any requirement for a search warrant.[7]

This information was then analyzed to look for suspicious activities, connections between individuals, and "threats".[8]

Additionally, the program included funding for biometric surveillance technologies that could identify and track individuals using surveillance cameras, and other methods.[8]

Following public criticism that the development and deployment of this technology could potentially lead to a mass surveillance system, the IAO was defunded by Congress in 2003.

However, several IAO projects continued to be funded and merely run under different names, as revealed by Edward Snowden during the course of the 2013 mass surveillance disclosures.[5][6][9][10][11][12]



Yes. Immediately after 9/11, this early attempt to build a mass surveillance system was revealed to the public by whistleblowers.

The classic "Illuminati" logo was "hidden right out in the open" -- in the design of a surveillance program that has now become a part of widespread, public knowledge.

People automatically assume that "no one would be stupid enough to do that," when in fact they are counting on you to be incapable of handling the truth.

Congress got involved, the project appeared to be defunded in 2003 due to its unpopularity, and most people who even paid attention assumed it just went away.

If DARPA, or whomever is using DARPA for their purposes, had any sense of political savvy, you would think the last thing they would ever want to do is use the classic "Illuminati" logo in their design.

Particularly in the post-Snowden world, such a move could literally be political suicide.




However, to actually make that jump from saying "boy, that's kind of strange" to saying "these people really do exist and here's another piece of evidence" is quite a shift in perspective.

The irony is that there is tons and tons of blatant, in-your-face evidence, as I summarized in Financial Tyranny.

The younger generation has an easier time seeing and accepting new information, since they are at an age where they have a lot more time to think and reflect.

After all, this is the age group that accounts for a healthy percentage of the viewing audience for horror and fantasy movies.

Once adults enter into the full-time working world and the stress of parenthood, their available time decreases dramatically -- and they are more apt to push away uncomfortable truths.



I must say I am truly fascinated to observe Disclosure in progress. It is now happening at a slow, steady, inevitable speed.

As you may know, I have contacts with a variety of whistleblowers who are much more highly-positioned than Edward Snowden ever was.

Some of these contacts were filmed in Project Camelot interviews, as I've shared in recent updates here at

This group of insiders has access to people at the very highest levels of this world of secrecy and intrigue.

The evidence that we are right on the threshold of major changes is undeniable -- and far beyond the scope of one article.

This group has steadfastly tried to stop us from learning that the Universe is alive -- that "there is a God" -- because they want to be the only ones in charge.

There is a spiritual component to the war that is being fought here on earth. Until we understand that, we cannot "win" the war -- and create the future we seek.

Once you understand how comprehensive the lies have been, you can awaken from the "matrix" they have created -- and discover who you really are.

The fruits of your labor -- to simply "be nice" -- could quite literally lead to Ascension, where you achieve the next level of human evolution.



A long-time reader sent me this. He did a Google Trends search for the term "the illuminati" -- and this is what he found.

From 2004 to Fall 2009, the interest was marginal, and rarely changed, with a low of 6 percent out of a potential high now of 100.

The search term peaked in February 2013, and the trendline is now reliably holding steady at ten times more than it was before fall 2009:



I do find it interesting that the name "Snow Den" has a symbolic meaning as well.

Though these revelations do have a "chilling effect," by learning the truth we are able to create a safe place -- a Den -- to keep us out of the cold Snow.

The truth will set us free. Denial is an addiction that prevents us from seeing the truth. Once we accept it, true planetary healing can begin.

And that is worth fighting for.

There is nothing better we can do with our time and energy than to help co-create a joyous, prosperous future for everyone.

This year, I am re-dedicating myself to working harder than ever to get the truth out -- and "walk the walk."

Based on everything I'm seeing and hearing, which I will share with you as the time becomes available, we may see some absolutely incredible events this year.

The "payoff" from these events will be incredibly vast -- and propel us into the true Star Trek Era, since we already have all the technologies on that show in classified programs.

Though many of us love to think and ponder intellectual puzzles, the real master work of Ascension is in how lovingly we treat ourselves -- and everyone else around us.
