VOLUME XXII DECEMBER 1977 NUMBER
Dedicated to the propagation
of a better understanding among all the peoples of the earth, and of those who
are not of earth.
As the 1977 Christmas season dawns upon a strife weary
world, the news media, for the first time in many years, are filled with the
talk of peace rather than the usual rumors and details of war. Whatever may be
the ultimate result of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat's unprecedented visit to
Israel, it has certainly created a situation that neither Egypt nor Israel
would have believed possible only a few days before. Few of the newsmen who
reported Sadat's offer to go to Israel believed it was anything but a political
grandstand or an outright bluff made in response to the earlier offer of Israel's
Prime Minister to meet Sadat anywhere, even in Cairo. For example, an editorial
in the San Francisco Chronicle said, "It is hard to evaluate the sincerity
and the true purpose of President Anwar Sadat's offer, made Wednesday night in
the Egyptian parliament, to go "if need be" to the Israeli
parliament, the Knesset, to discuss peace. Grand gestures of this sort have
been made before in tense international situations. Indeed, Israel's Prime
Begin, made the same kind of offer earlier this year when
he said he would be prepared "to meet the president of Egypt anywhere,
even in Cairo, in order to negotiate....
Throwaway lines are the stock in trade of actors,
including actors on the world's stage, and it would probably be unwise to
invest in these lines much belief in the hope of progress toward the ultimate
sitting down of Arabs and Israelis at Geneva. It is particularly hard to find
any hope that, even if Sadat came to Jerusalem, the meeting would get anywhere,
since he is still insisting on what Begin considers unacceptable preconditions
for peace talks, namely, the establishment of a Palestinian homeland and Israeli
withdrawal from all occupied territories.
There is no question that it required a great deal of
courage and determination on the part of Sadat even to consider such an act,
and a very strong motivation to perform it, knowing full well that such an action
would be bitterly opposed by a large portion of the Arab world including some
of his own friends, and that his entire political future, his personal
reputation and perhaps even his life would depend upon his success in achieving
some sort of substantial breakthrough in a situation that seemed to offer
little hope of such achievement. Nevertheless, the meeting did take place, and
in an atmosphere that seemed to be far from the stiff and formal neutrality
that might be expected between representatives of nations that have four times
been at war with each other. The fact is that there was every evidence of a
sincere desire by both sides to find a common ground that would eliminate the
causes of hostility. There was an air of cooperation and conciliation that
would not have been believed possible if it had not actually occurred.
Immediately after the meeting there arose the expected
furor of indignation and accusations of treason by the leaders of those nations
whose political formats could not tolerate the concept of peace under any
circumstances, but the remainder of the world seems to be in complete sympathy.
DECEMBER 1977 3
As this editorial is being written, Sadat has again seized
the initiative by inviting all nations interested in achieving peace in the
near east, to a conference in Cairo. What results this conference may achieve
are still in the laps of the Gods, but will probably be fairly well known by
the time this editorial appears in print. In any event, the psychological
barriers to peace in the near east have certainly been broken and now
diplomacy, logic and reason may have their innings.
There is also the encouraging fact that Prime Minister Ian
Smith has announced plans to steer the country to black rule through a one-man
one vote settlement with moderate African nationalists. He also spoke of a
"safe return policy" for black nationalist guerrillas battling his
regime, and said he believed his plan would end the five year war with the
Whatever the result of these dedicated efforts for peace
may be, they are certainly a long step in the right direction, and it is just
possible that after several thousands of years, the leaders of nations are
beginning to see the merit in the advice given by Him whose birth we celebrate
each Christmas season.
A child usually conceives of freedom as the “right"
to do anything he wants whenever he wants, perhaps as long as it doesn't
"hurt" anyone else. When we grow up, freedom becomes the opportunity
to make decisions for ourselves, develop our own values, and take
responsibility for our own actions.
Much of the rhetoric during the 1976 political campaigns
dealt with what economic and social decisions (value judgments) a central
government should make for us. Our civilization approaches a singular, critical
point in history, as the finite natural resources it has grown accustomed to
exploiting now dwindle. Decisions made by the so-called "free
marketplace" - short term economic interests - may hasten catastrophe by
prolonging wasteful practices profitable only in the short run. There is no
question that we do need a coherent, centralized national plan to deal with
this problem, just as we would need one to defend our freedoms against military
attack. However, gradual decentralization of the economy, and encouragement of
personal initiative and generosity may, in the long run, reduce our need to
have big government dictate morality and have government take care of poor
people who are unpleasant to face person-to-person. For example, use of solar
energy in principle allows the individual homeowner to install and maintain his
own apparatus; use of nuclear power requires complex administration of safety
and constant surveillance for security.
♦ ♦ ♦
The central issue for personal freedom, however, is still
the individual's making his own decisions about his personal life, and his
accepting responsibility for them. Responsibility, in an interconnected
society, requires that everyone take his own job seriously, and not leave the
details to someone else.
In Communist countries, there is thorough centralized
planning and usually a genuine attempt to provide everyone with bare adaptive
necessities; but the individual is not allowed to develop his own personal
values. In Cuba, a young family's application for a private apartment hinges on
the referendum of neighbors and co-workers. The inference is that no one may
choose the persons he will care about out of his own values; allowing such
choice to the individual leads (according to the ideology) to decision-making
based on self-interest, to competition for "survival commodities",
and finally to
DECEMBER 1977 5
inequities. Individual differences are taken to follow
mostly from lucky inheritance and to bear little relation to basic
"survival competence." No one is allowed to develop his own surplus
in life, for his own purposes, until the fundamental "adaptive" needs
of everyone have been met. No one is allowed to use group (religious, ethnic)
associations and commitments to bolster his own ego. Consumer technology is
viewed with suspicion, enabling some persons to obtain convenience or
advantage, at the expense of others less aware or conscious of what is
According to many religious theologies, individual human
rights are not innate, but are granted by God to serve a predetermined purpose.
Some people can find liberty in spiritual surrender to God and to that
uncritical humanitarian service to the needs of others which must follow.
Unfortunately, men in power often use religious (or political) collective
allegiances to support group "manifest destiny," which, supported by
"religious" fervor, throws nations at each others throats and again
threatens catastrophe for the entire planet. When this happens, the individual
is no longer supposed to under-stand what he believes, or relate it to anything
unique in him. Soon, he is no longer responsible for his own life; he is
automatically "O.K." as a person because he follows his particular religion.
He may even feel he has the right to impose the "moral code" of his
own particular religion on others not of his faith.
The purpose of this very general discussion is to suggest
that human freedom and associated responsibility at the individual level, is
the right place to start in attacking social and economic problems. Whatever
one's personal experience with some particular controversial political or moral
issue, thinking should start with what encourages the individual to work on his
own happiness. The lives of the citizens (and families) in any territory should
be more important than someone's idea of the destiny of his own group.
Responsibility at the individual level can do much toward producing wealth
without destroying the planet, and toward sharing it equitably.
Solar vs. Nuclear Energies
(San Francisco Chronicle, November 15, 1977)
By William Moore
Despite Secretary of Energy James Schlesinger's public
pronouncements in favor of developing solar energy, dozens of people in a
position to know have told The Chronicle that, in reality, the Carter
administration is keeping the solar switch turned off.
"A growing band of solar proponents in Congress
contends that the President's top energy appointees are wedded to the nuclear
industry and, in the words of Congressman Richard Ottinger (Dem.-N.Y.) are
'un-questionably botching by design' solar research.
"An Energy Department official says his superiors
waged a behind-the-scenes battle against increases in the solar development budget
and the government purchases of solar devices that could be expected to help
the infant industry.
"Scientists around the country, including several
distinguished ones at Stanford and the University of California at Berkeley,
complain that their unsolicited federal solar research proposals have gone
unanswered. "Solar equipment businessmen and several knowledgeable federal
officials say they know of no serious efforts to recruit solar experts into
"The scientists and the bureaucrats, in particular,
were nervous about talking to the press. After all, they noted, research
contracts and careers could be at stake if their comments did not settle well
in the corridors of Washington power.
" 'Please don't use my name,' many implored.
"Among those requesting anonymity was an Energy Department official who
said he had firsthand
DECEMBER 1977 7
knowledge of the administration's solar plans.
" 'Strangely enough,' he said, `all sorts of people
have remained silent about something that has become quite obvious: the
administration has pulled back support for solar programs.'
"He said some federal employees handling solar
matters have been instructed by their superiors not to have contact with
Congressional members and staff.
" 'That's to keep them from letting Congress know how
acute the need is for additional staff in solar work,' said the official.
"In addition, he said, the Energy Department, only a
few days after it began operations last month, adopted the Pentagon practice of
opening all mail before it reaches the people it is addressed to. `The net
effect,' he said, 'is to stifle open discussion.'
"Despite these restraints on contact with the outside
world, the official delivered a scorching appraisal of the Carter-Schlesinger
" `This administration,' he fumed, `has done more
damage to the solar program than the Ford and Nixon administrations, and those
two prior administrations were hardly enthusiastic about this potential rival
to established forms of energy.'
"Experience with nuclear energy is the hallmark of
the key appointees in the month-and-a-half-old Energy Department.
"Secretary Schlesinger was a former chairman of the
Atomic Energy Commission (which was replaced by the Energy Research Development
Administration which, along with all federal energy agencies, was in turn
replaced by the Energy Department).
"Proponents of solar energy argue that government
officials with nuclear backgrounds have a built-in bias for high-energy
technology that is centralized, like nuclear power.
"Schlesinger's chief deputy is John O'Leary, another
former AEC official. The man nominated to be
assistant secretary of energy technology - the post with
direct responsibility for the development of photovoltaic cells - is former AEC
official Robert Thorne.
"He stirred up controversy last year, when, as an
official in the Energy Research and Development Ad-ministration, he allowed his
office in San Francisco to distribute 29,000 pro-nuclear pamphlets in the
campaign against the unsuccessful California initiative to set controls on the
construction of nuclear power plants.
" `Putting pro-nuclear people in charge of solar
energy is like having the fox guard the chicken coop,' said Gary DeLoss of the Environmental
Policy Center in Washington. "
Editor's note - Space does not permit inclusion of the
entire article, but the gist, herewith presented, is convincing evidence that
special interest groups still get more attention than the public welfare in
A U.F.O. FOR CHRISTMAS?
Although the producer has mailed us an invitation to see
and review the new $20 million U.F.O. extravaganza, "Close Encounters of
the Third Kind," we were unable to attend the preview in Dallas, Texas,
and since it does not open officially until December 14, we have not seen the
picture and so can only report what other critics have said about it.
REVIEW by John Hard
"Not many movies have a measurable effect on public
opinion. During the next few months, however, it should be relatively simple to
gauge the influence of Steven Spielberg's $20 million U.F.O. thriller, `Close
DECEMBER 1977 9
Encounters of the Third Kind,' which opens December 14 at
the King Cinema and around the country.
"My guess is that the effect will be substantial.
While the picture probably lacks the incredibly broad appeal of `Star Wars,'
there is little doubt that it will be popular, and its magical, romanticizing
attitude toward the U.F.O. phenomenon is likely to be particularly appealing to
" `Close Encounters' is a movie that believes in
miracles. Children may be more disappointed if they don't see a U.F.O. this
Christmas than if they don't have a close encounter with Santa Claus.
"As one reporter put it last week at a Los Angeles
press conference, following the premiere screening of the film: `Don't you
think this movie is going to prompt a rash of U.F.O. sightings?'
"Dr. J. Allen Hynek, who wrote `The U.F.O.
Experience, A Scientific Inquiry,' provided the film with its title and served
as its technical advisor and consultant, predicted not only that the film will
prompt more sightings, but that he hopes it will.
"After 22 years of investigating the phenomenon with
the Air Force, he feels that `efforts to investigate and understand it, and
eventually to solve it, could have a profound effect - perhaps even be the
springboard to a revolution in mankind's outlook on the universe. There is no
question that U.F.O.'s exist, but it's our problem to investigate them. In the
past few years, astronomers have been forced to admit that the universe is
teeming with life.
" 'I have a strong feeling that "Close
Encounters" will cause a wave of sightings. But the important thing isn't
how many sightings are reported, but how many old reports show up. Will people
suddenly be prompted to discuss what they saw four or five years ago and were
afraid to report?
" `Whenever I ask an audience for a show of hands,
usually 10 to 20 percent admit that they have seen a U.F.O. But when I ask how
many reported it, the percentage is much lower.' "

SCIENCE MUSEUM SHOWS SPACE COLONY'S LIFESTYLE
"If you have a hankering to live in space you should
visit the Space Building at the California State Museum of Science and Industry
"The museum has an exhibit showing a space colony
capable of housing and supporting 10,000 people. The NASA-prepared exhibit
shows that a colony is not a science-fiction fantasy but a scientific fact.
` `The display not only shows how the colony would be
self-supporting but also provides an artist's conception of how the space
dwellers would live, surrounded by farmland, rivers, homes and recreation areas
in a protected environment.
"The exhibit in the museum at Exposition Park is open
9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, with special slide presentations on the space
colonies on weekends in Kinsey Auditorium at 1 p.m."
BLAME THAT NEW DISEASE ON LATEST SPACE VISITOR
London (AP) - "Life on earth could have come from
outer space and major epidemics like influenza and the plague may still be
coming from there, two distinguished British astronomers said Thursday.
"Sir Fred Hoyle and Prof. Chandra Wickramasinghe
presented the theory in an article in the weekly magazine New Scientist.
"They speculated that the essential building blocks
of life were not formed in the `primeval soup' of primitive earth - the normally
accepted theory - but in the core and tails of comets.
"About four million years ago, their article
suggested, a comet could have crash-landed on earth, bringing the primitive
organisms from which all life has evolved.
"If the theory is right, the scientists said, it has
`profound biological, medical and sociological implications.' If life did start
that way, invasions of earth by fresh biological material from the debris of
comets is likely still to be continuing, they reasoned. "Such an
explanation, they said, could account for past epidemics and plagues which
spread quickly round the world at a time when travel was painfully slow. It
would also mean fresh epidemics could come the same way.
"Hoyle is professor of astronomy at the Royal
Institution of Great Britain, one of the country's most respected scientific
bodies. Wickramasinghe is professor of applied mathematics at Cardiff University.
" `A continual microbiological vigil of the
stratosphere may well be necessary to eliminate the havoc which will ensue from
extra-terrestrial invasions of the future,' they warned.
"They argued that the `primeval soup' theory depends
on assumptions that have never been proved and pointed to mounting evidence
that the essential building blocks of life - amino acids and other molecules -
are formed in large quantities through-out space.
"The 1973 comet Kohoutek was found to contain
important organic molecules, dust tails to comets may well contain similar
material, and meteorite remains on earth have been found to contain amino-acids
and biological molecules, they said.
"Bacteria able to survive on earth could have landed
locked in an icy comet billions of years ago, they argued further.
"The sudden plagues that have irregularly swept the
globe could be the result of fresh attempts at the evolution of life on comets,
DECEMBER 1977 13
suggested. The material would reach the earth on clumps of
debris from comets as the earth swings across their tails."
SPACE COLONISTS TO GROW THEIR OWN ON ASTEROIDS
Richland, Wash. (AP) - "A logical way to provision
space colonies is from farms operated by robots on asteroids, a Battelle
Northwest researcher says. "Battelle researchers have designed one such
farm for the Ceres, the largest of the thousands of asteroids which orbit
between Mars and Jupiter, said Peter Molton, a scientist with Battelle's
"Asteroids as sources of food and minerals would
reduce the huge freight costs for shipments from Earth to space colonies on the
Moon, other planets or moons or man-made space colonies, Molton said.
"Developing methods to mine and manufacture special
items in space would allow colonies to build a balance of trade with Earth, the
"One of the biggest problems of space colonization, Molton
said, is the cost of doing business in space.
6 " 'At projected freight costs of $20 million for
65,000-pound payloads, you couldn't ship lettuce back to Earth,' he said. `But
relatively pure uranium, aluminum or other minerals could be a different story
"Shipping food from Earth to space colonies would be
just as expensive, Molton said, but trans-porting food from the Moon to a space
colony would use only about one-fourth the energy to ship from Earth.
"Farms may not be possible inside space colonies
because of the restricted area under atmospheric controls, Molton said."
"What is truth?" Pilate asked the suffering man
standing in judgment before him. But Jesus the Christ had already taught His
message to those who wanted to hear, and the great Master answered nothing.
Throughout history in all ages and cultures there have
lived great teachers and enlightened messengers of truth in ethics. The common
man recognizes the truth of the message though it comes at different times and
in various forms. This message universally accepted as most humane, reliable
and Godly seems to have been always much the same, though its teachers and
originators were separated by centuries and continents.
Perhaps the most widely known and respected tenet of this
perennial teaching is known to Christians as the Golden Rule. In the beautiful
words of the Master Jesus, "All things whatsoever ye would that men should
do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. "
Five centuries earlier in India, Gautama Buddha taught his
followers and said, "Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find
During this same period Confucius was teaching this same
philosophy to his countrymen in China. Confucius said, "Is there one maxim
which ought to be acted upon one's whole life? Surely it is the maxim of
loving-kindness: Do not unto others what you would not have them do unto
In the Talmud, the scriptures of Judaism, the message is
again unmistakably clear, "What is hateful to you, do not to your
fellowman. That is the entire law, all the rest is commentary."
DECEMBER 197 15
Around the world and through the ages the great message
rings out loud and clear:
Brahmanism: "This is the sum of duty: Do naught unto
others which would cause you pain if done to you."
Taoism: "Regard your neighbors gain as your own gain,
and your neighbors loss as your own loss."
Zoroastriaism: "That nature alone is good which
refrains from doing unto another whatsoever is not good for itself. "
Islam: "No one of you is a believer until he desires
for his brother that which he desires for himself."
This great message, though slightly varied in wording,
remains the same for all people, places and times, and it cannot be improved

ONE, by Orest Bedrij, Strawberry Hill Press, is a small
paperback book that contains profound philosophy and guidance for fulfilling
the precepts of such philosophy. In this book spiritual philosophy and hard
science meet and unite in one law: the law of love. The last paragraph in the
Preface of the book gives a thumbnail summary of the contents of the book. The
author states: "My basic assumption in the first part (of the book) is
that Absolute Law exists and governs all. The second part proves the truth of
The book is divided into two sections: The first, One
Freedom, and that is sub-divided into four fundamental concepts; Where Are WE
Now, Where Do We Have to Go; How Do We Get There and I Am Who Am. The second
section is, One Law. It is also subdivided into three sections: That Which Is;
The Great Trinity and ONE Through Mathematics, Physics and Experimentation.

for yourself the words the author has quoted and in such
examination find the TRUTH the author is presenting with a clarity and
simplicity that is unparalleled in any work this reviewer has examined. In the
section on How Do We Get There? the author states: "If we are concerned
with man's happiness, our emphasis has to shift from the point of
error-and-terror and weeping over the previous actions, to the point of
knowledge and truth: from the point of justice to the point of freedom.*****
Whether a man is brought before man-made justice is not as important as whether
he understands that there is a higher Absolute law and that it will balance his
books regardless. "
Buried in the center of the book is a recipe for all men
to come to higher understanding of Who they are and of Who others are also. On
page 67 the author states, "If you really care, if you want to help the
child who watched his family kicked and herded into cattle trains to Siberia,
the defenseless into whose mouth boiling water is poured, the starving `trash'
who before death eat lubricating grease, the pregnant mother who is being
transmuted from a human being into an animal-----if you care you can put a stop
to all of this with one act. Moses did. So did Isaiah, Daniel, Elijah,
Socrates, Plato, Plutarch, Pythagoras, Jesus, Krishna, Buddha, Shankara, Confucious,
Lao-Tzu and Ghandi. President Lincoln issued a proclamation for the whole
nation to do it in a time of need. FAST!!! The power is fasting is tremendous.
