Is Richard Hoagland The Bee's Knees?

After (more or less) reading the book Dark Mission I wanted to follow up on Richard Hoagland's research into torsion physics. What I found was a hornet's nest.

Worker honeybees have been disappearing. It's called Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) or honey bee depopulation syndrome (HBDS). Whatever label you choose, the fact remains that domesticated honeybees are a key link in the world's life cycle, providing pollination to agricultural crops.

What's causing the problem? It could be factors such as pesticides, genetically modified crops, mites, insect diseases, or some combination of these and other factors.

But Richard Hoagland has the answer:

Our civilization has developed marvelous gadgets, giving us instantaneous, worldwide data and audio-visual communcation [sic]. The signals travel through "empty space" on invisible electromagnetic waves -- for which, the existence of civilization (if not our own existence!) now depends. Nature and the biology of the "natural world" is no different -- but instead of electromagnetic waves, it uses (in part) something called "torsion fields" for the same essential purpose -- to transmit vital signals into and between living eco-systems, so that they may function properly.

In Dark Mission Hoagland and co-author Mike Bara gone on about hyperdimensional physics. From what I've read there isn't much difference between HD and quantum physics. With quantum stuff it's all a lot of speculation with mystical formulae, of spooky stuff like the observer influencing the observation, a cat both dead and alive, the universe is made up of silly string, whatever.

Now E=mc2. That's impressive. You can see the effect with the detonation of an atomic bomb. But until there's a Q-bomb, quantum physics is a lot of talk about nothing.

I won't go into all the details about torsion physics except to say it doesn't have any dead-alive cats (as far as I know). Hoagland does claim it promises all sorts of free energy for mankind, that's why "They" are keeping it a secret.

As for the case of the disappearing honeybees, Hoagland states the torsion field background flux might be changing, ergo "the domesticated bees may have lost their equally fundamental torsion navigation systems." It's a matter of lost, not dead, bees.

The online article that is my source (see below) is dated April 2007. There's the promise of "Part II Currently in Preparation" but I haven't found it. Maybe Hoagland got mentally lost from a torsion flux.

Anything is possible with those damn torsion fields.


The Bees' Needs: It's the Physics, Stupid!

My wife is an entomologist of sorts. She explained the CCD problem. Initially scientists thought it was a virus, but I think now they think it's some kind of pesticide in use in Europe that's the main culprit. But yes, the bees get lost and can't find their way home, so they die.

This is the Cydonia Face guy, right?

Good to know that Mars ain't behind some sort of plot to kill off mankind. I know Earth does obstruct your view but tough.


Yup, that's the guy.

Torsion fields was pretty much discredited back in the 80s when the Russian "scientists" who came up with the concept were exposed as frauds. Why Hoagland would use pseudoscience to explain something that's more easily explained by a host of other reasons is beyond me, unless he's purposefully trying to discredit himself.

BTW, I was thinking about reviewing a paper I recently read from the Naval War College about the MWI (Multi-Worlds Interpretation) of quantum physics. There actually is experimental evidence for such, but only on a very small (literally sub-atomic) level. But that's not to say that people can develop fraudulent interpretations of a valid scientific principle. Torsion fields would be one such example.

Obviously he got too close and had to be silenced. Probably by some advanced quantum weapon.
