Latest work, articles and images
Our purpose with regard to the articles which will be published here, is to open new lines of research and debate around a mysterious figure such as this, and who, as is everyday more obvious, may have been the subject of some kind of historical forgery.
Not until the middle of the XXth century did the scholars agree to make the writer Miguel de Cervantes a native of the town of Alcalá de Henares. This assertion, nevertheless, is plainly in contrast with the fact that the author himself variously said that he came from Valladolid, Madrid or Córdoba. The biography ascribed to him according to extant documentation doesn’t in the least agree with his personality. So, while the Cervantes of the documents was the son of peasants, farmers, maybe of a poor village surgeon, with no education and whose children were illiterate, the Cervantes we have come to know from the information given by himself in his writings is a highly educated man, with vast and deep knowledge in many fields, such as, for instance, classical authors, navigation, contemporary philosophers, legal and commercial terminology, history, the worlds both of literature and the military, and with a very determined political mind. He is a royal tax collector and can count on the support of highly placed courtiers. What has happened, then, with his biography? Can it be that it has been tampered with by some bureaucratic censor? Everything leads us to think this has been the case. With what purpose? This is what i intend to uncover at the conference.

The Lie Of The Millennium
I must warn you. The reading of this document is captivating, hard to believe at the beginning, surprising and shocking.
This document is no other than the short translation to the www of the investigations carried out by Jordi Bilbeny over the last 18th years already exposed in his books.
What Bilbeny discovered is a bomb historically speaking. There is no other discovery that dismantles so many false theories which have become certainties and fill nowadays our school books.
The truth always ends up emerging. What has been concealed by the official history cannot now bear now more disregards. Despite the history is always made by the powerful the search of the truth has always been in the very nature of man and sooner or later the enigmas and lies get resolved and unmasked.
The evidence now revealed strikes twice. For the unearthing of the real circumstances of the discovery of the New World still so misunderstood and for the incredible and appalling manipulation of the historical facts by the authorities. It may be difficult for the outsider to understand the reasons for such misconduct without understanding the politics of modern Spain as well as the historic politics of what was then the Catalonian Kingdom of Aragon and the Castilian Kingdom of Castile.
The baroquely engineered false history and intended manipulation of all related data regarding the discovery of America cannot be understood without understanding first the Castilian fanaticism of the age. An age and a fanaticism that gave life to the Spanish Inquisition, the catholic fundamentalism that in a degree still remain in such land today, the very much alive ethnic hatred towards the Catalonian nation.
The Spanish authorities couldn’t burn definitively all books and evidence regarding such discovery for the new arising Castile would have lost his borrowed glory. They could not reach the books written out of their borders or the copies sent abroad and it is thanks to that that nowadays we can sum the evidence and reconstruct what really happened.
The silence of the official institutions when presented with the evidence point out an accusing finger to those who in the past hided the truth as well as those who today try pointlessly to ignore it.
In this new millennium we shall start with a clear conscience and for the sake of knowledge make the truth prevail upon the political usage of history.
2.- The false “Bartolome de las Casas” and his work
Since the beginning of the sixtieth century the history of bookmaking, book printing and its distribution is closely related to the history of censorship. If fact, from this very age are known the censorship laws which allowed the censor agents to revise any books to be printed and modify its contents to oblige to the religious and political interests of the Spanish Crown. This was applied to all books referred to the then recent discovery of America:
* Royal bond 21st of September 1556 -- Remains prohibited the impression of any book about America without the special license of the kingdom council. And therefore ordered the collection of any existing one and severe punishment for any bookseller that may carry on selling them.
* Royal bond 9th of October 1556 -- It is ordered to royal officials the requisition and identification of all books arrived in ships not indexed in the Saint Inquisition indexes.
Curiously enough it is in those dates that the historian Bartolome de las Casas wrote his will. We may easily observe the relation between the censorship laws being introduced and the precautions undertaken by the writer.
It is just after each of the Royal bonds of 1556, 1558 and 1560 that Bartolome de las Casas takes the first measures in protection of its work and four year after the 1560 Royal bond that indefinitely postpones its “General History of the Indies”. To be more precise, the November of 1559, Bartolome de las Casas signed will letter for the future of its work.
Through that document he gave the manuscript of this book to a religious order and expressed his will for the book not to be published until at least forty years later after his dead: “Once those forty years passed, in the event of convenience for the good of the Indians and of Spain, they can order it to be printed for the glory of God and revealing of the truth”. Passed five years, on his later will of the 17th of March 1564 insisted: “And therefore I gave in donation [my work] to the Saint Gregorian College of all my Latin and romanc writings may them be found in the theme of the Indians and the General History of the Indies which I also have written in romanc. It was my intention that never leaved the college but for printing when God provided the time remaining the originals in within the college which I ask and pray to the very Reverend and councillor fathers of the time. That they shall do for good. Upon which conscience I command them that in within the college may they guard and protect”.
There is yet one more fact that Bartolome de las Casas decided to protect his work from censorship: The fact that only puts all his writings about the Indians in his General History of the Indies.
Yet the maybe most undeniable evidence is that like all the other censured writings, the General History of the Indies remained completely unknown for some years and not at the abbey in which he ordered it to be kept. We know that by the Royal bond of the 3rd of November 1571, after five years of its dead, the original work was subtracted by Juan de Ovando of the abbey and moved to Madrid under the custody of Juan Lopez de Velasco, the Indies Council censor. There remained until 1597.
For the correspondence we have regarding Lopez de Velasco referring to his censorship activities we know that he was a statesman upon which his country’s interest prevailed upon the convenience of letting the truth be public. Is in that way, how Bartolome de las Casas, has being conserved in royal ownership: serving the interest of the Castilian state upon the historical truth and against the interests of the Kingdom of Aragon.
The clearest example of this censorship is the wide quantity of changes, added-ups and contradictions we can find at the General History of the Indies, a recognised fact already mentioned by the international historian community.
Another revealing fact I that the original work was hidden during centuries despite that from time to time someone made reference upon it:
* The historian and bibliography writer Antonio de Leon Pinelo in his book “Epitome of the Oriental and Occidental Library” (published in Madrid 1629) says he saw the work in two volumes at the Simancas archive, where he went on 1626 to examine the General History of the Indies of Bartolome de las Cases by the command of the Indies Council. He also tells us that those volumes corresponded to 1492 and 1552. And therefore he mentions another two existing copies. Those volumes though one in the Villa-Umbrosa Count library and the other at Jacob Krisius in Amsterdam.
* In the same way, in “Memory of Antonio Herrera and the books and papers of Casas who where taken from San Gregory College in Valladolid and are in possession of Juan Lopez de Velasco” it is said that the works where composed of three volumes and the first had 624 pages. But in fact the first conserved volume according to Lewis Hanke had only 496 pages.
Another aspect of evidence again from censorship sources and its political intention, it is revealed when analysing the pretended autograph preface by Columbus of the “On board diary”. From this letter, we have an extract that Bartolome de las Casas publishes in the first volume of the General History of the Indies (pages 47 and 48), and an oddly complete incorporated text to the codex of the “The prophecies book”.
Now, in the original (modified) text by Bartolome de las Casas of the General History of the Indies which is in Madrid’s National Library at the text from the preface letter one can see scrawls, modifications and other proofs that what one’s reading is not a transcription.
The fact that is being incorporated to the codex allows us at least to be suspicious about a fraud case. Numerous historians have already noticed that like Gallardo in his “Essay of a library” and in fact it can be checked that not only is something added afterwards but also unrelated. Let’s take a look at the following examples:
* The letter which is taken off the book’s content starts at the 4th front and longs until the 6th front. Of those pages, the ones which carry the 4 number are part of the bunch of paper but not the 5th, which seems glued. The number 6 finally are even with 4.
* The handwriting is the same from the 4th to the 5th pages but different from the 6th on.
* The paper of the added page, is completely different from the one in which has been inserted. Looking closely we can see that they have nothing in common.
* The handwriting of the added page doesn’t appear again in the codex.
* The letter presents blanks, added text and signs of manipulation which is clearly suspicious.
The conclusion is that “The prophecies book” was modified so it matched with the preface-letter of the General History of the Indies not to say that from the General History of the Indies itself didn’t last match of the original once the abuse of the “The prophecies book” was done.
If Columbus is the most important character in America’s discovery, there is another character whose importance is even or more due to the very valuable literary legacy which has been crucial to the discovery’s understanding. This character is Bartolome de las Casas and no else. According the official Columbine Spanish historiography he was a missionary friar, born in Andalusia albeit there is not a single document proving his andalusian nature.
As it will be demonstrated following this was the Catalonian friar Bartomeu Casaus.
If we analyse the copies of the official texts lost in that age that speak about the American discovery we will see that the character is called Bartolome de las Casas but we also will see that almost all copies where published in Castile. Knowing the certainty of censorship we cannot trust those sources faithfully. In fact a Latin translation of the “Brief Tale of the Indies destruction” published in Frankfurt on the 1598 has Bartolomaeum Casaum as author.
We can also state thanks to Girolami Banzoni in the “History of the New World” that the father of the friar was called “Casaos”. Yet a more clear prove is the signature of that character when on 1543 was appointed Bishop of Chiapas until 1550.
We cannot at that point avoid considering the bishop one of many Catalonians un-nationalized in profit of Castile.
(Note to the reader: Once proved the nature of the character, the character will be called henceforth by his real name: Bartomeu Casaus)
3.- Quo Vadis Columbus
Are the contradictions in the preface-letter an accidental finding? Are they affecting only this part of the text? Or rather spread all throughout the book as an unavoidable and indelible fact by the censorship agents to manipulate the facts and change the sense of the history? In the following examples we can explore it clearly:
In General History of the Indies is being told both of the discovery of the new lands and about going to Asian India, part which has been openly modified.
We also find contradictions in the fact of Cuba being an isle or terra firma. The vision that Casaus gives about what Columbus believed Cuba was is totally contradictory, not only throughout the General History of the Indies but also with the Admiral’s word in the “letter” with which he announced the discovery where is clearly stated that Cuba was an isle.
All posterior fakes used by the censors to give evidence that Cuba was terra firma, or Japan, and that that terra firma was Asia should be understood as a very astute political game. Why? Because if Columbus didn’t discover neither land nor isles by his will and labour but by chance and not knowing where he was going and confusing all he saw with other geographical places as found written in the “Capitulations” book, the Crown would cancel the contract and expropriate the land and profits gained and the novelty titles given.
As known, the Colom (Columbus) where finally expropriated which is even more clear the extreme importance of this character in Casaus history.
4.- About Jaume Ferrer De Blanes, missing in combat
A very related issue with the Discovery of America is the correspondence between Columbus and a famous cosmographer of the age who according to some sources would be one of the main cause that would throw Columbus to the quest for the new world. Well, as Casaus says in his books, this cosmographer was called Paulo. A Florentine physician identified lately by the columbine critic as Paolo dal Pozzo Toscanelli.
Altolaguirre in his “Cristobal Columbus and Pablo del Pozzo Toscanelli” demonstrated that the correspondence that includes Ferran Colom, son of the discoverer in “The history of the Admiral” was an invention for there was a bunch of incongruences (repetitions and common places) and inexact data not according to the mentioned facts.
For instance, in one of those letters of 1474 Toscanelli says that “at the end of the path the great province of Catai should be found, official residence of the Great Khan. The one of Mangi and the beautiful city of Quinsai”.
This fact wouldn’t have any importance at all if it wasn’t because all those denominations belong to China’s Mongol dominion founded by Genghis Khan the 1206 and ended the 1369 so either manipulation of the text has occurred or Toscanelli wasn’t what one can say a ‘brilliant’ geographer because in 1474, when this letter was written China wasn’t ruled by the Great Khan any more and the country wasn’t called Catai, the province of Mangi didn’t exist and Cambelec, Zaiton and Quinsai cities had other names.
Another fact that makes Toscanelli’s existence dubious is the fact that an historian called Herrera, in one of his latest studies about Casaus and specially in the chapter that refers to by whom was Columbus induced to the quest for the New World there is no reference to Toscanelli at all. According to Herrera, the man that induced Columbus to the discovery was no one else than Martin of Bohemia.
As we know how the censorship agents behaved cutting and adding its easier to believe that the truth is that those who manipulated Herrera’s and Ferran Colom’s books, did it based on an original missing today and containing a different name than the legated. Which one then?
All we know is that the writer was a friend of Colom and that he should have known a lot of cosmography. It happens that the unique letter sent to Columbus by a cosmographer which critics haven’t yet turned down for not being original is Jaume Ferrer de Blanes’s one. This letter once again is the translation of an now lost original one in Catalonian tongue for there is no lack of references showing the origin like phrases like “this our Spain” or the sharing of the same monarchs in “Our common lords”.
Also it should be taken into account the letter to the kings sent the 27th of January 1494 in which was written “I will always refer to those who know more than myself like the Admiral of the Indies who at tempore existente knows about this issues like no one else” which proves the friendship between both characters.
The fact that Ferrer was a top cosmographer of its time is being testimony by plenty of historians like Roselly de Lorgues and so is explained his involvement in the partition of the Atlantic Ocean between Spain and Portugal once legalized the discovery of the new lands. In fact, Ferrer creates the first world map including America which would be sent to the kings at 1495.
Being Ferrer who orientates, gives counsel and induces Columbus to the New World discovery it is not hard to imagine that he was a Catalonian himself. So Columbus was a Catalonian and Ferrer was a Catalonian. They are the one who organises the expedition and succeeds and the one that supervises the details and set the limits between Spain and Portugal. That discredits the traditional Spanish teachings “for Castile and Leon was America discovered by Colon”.
The facts since now dismantle the prejudice that America’s discovery was reserved to Castile. Why should Ferdinand the 15th of August 1494 write to his deputies on Catalonia, Majorca and to the viceroy of Sicily all belonging to the kingdom of Aragon asking them for the search of sailors, cosmographers and expert astrologers to give their opinion about the Atlantic division then?
To close the chapter then we can conclude that the cosmographer that was intentionally erased form Casaus, Ferran Colom and Herrera’s books couldn’t be no other that Jaume Ferrer de Blanes and that was intentionally erased because of his Catalonian condition, because his old and compromising relation with the different states of the Aragon Kingdom and because of his proved and old friendship with the Admiral.
5.- The great Mediterranean port of Palos de Moguer
Casaus compiles Columbus words in “I came to the village of Palos sea port where I loaded three vessels very adequate to the purpose and leaved the port provided with very suppliers and sea people” but in another says “he left the river called Saltes, for it is called like that the river of Palos”. Saltes was yet then and since two centuries before an inhabited island. Plus that “river in Palos” that Casaus mentions has never before mentioned.
Otherwise, there are a great number of chroniclers of the age that record Columbus leaving land neither from Palos nor Saltes but from Cadis.
In the below annexed text:
This wide range of choices is yet again showing that the censors shaded the name of the original port and that they where more worried of making it disappear than synchronising the invented substitute port.
The historian Bilbeny has demonstrated that Columbus didn’t leave from Palos but from Pals de l’Emporda instead. The documents speak about a military fortress in Palos but there was never one there. Nor there is any archaeological remaining evidence today. Pals de l’Emporda though still conserves today all traces of a fortified medieval town. Sometimes a picture is worth more than words:
[imatges - Pals General History of the Castilian quests cover. 1) where it is clearly seen that the official Palos is Pals de l’Emporda]
Another evidence is the fact that other chroniclers like Piri Reis (1513) and Alfonso Garcia de Matamoros (“De Academia et Doctis Viris Hispaniae”, 1553) tell us that the first expedition of the discovery “ … in reaching the Strait of Ceuta and having sailed four thousand miles”. There is clearly not 4000 miles from Palos de Moguer to the Strait of Gibraltar. There is about 4000 miles from Pals de l’Emporda to the Strait of Ceuta though.
Also if you ever have been in Palos de Moguer you will see with your eyes that the supposed river from where the three vessels leaved land doesn’t exceed what you can call a torrent.
Yet more evidence is that is being told that from Palos de Moguer is from where Columbus returned to Barcelona to be received by the kings. Numerous historians compiled the fact that Columbus went from the landing point to Barcelona walking. That he did in three days because the kings gave him the order dated the 30th of March and he arrived the 3rd of April. This makes sense with the receiving that the Catholic Kings gave to Columbus in Saint Jeronimus of the Mutra’s monastery in Barcelona. Should have been true that he came from Palos rather than Pals de l’Emporda he must have done an average of 14 Km hour.
It was at the Mas Sunyol, a house close to the monastery where according to the chroniclers he was allocated and slept. In 1990 the historian Francesc Albardane, stealing from the Notary archive from Barcelona, found a document in which was written that this house belonged to the Colom family in Barcelona. The discoverer slept at his home.
6.- The sailors invented at purpose
With the sailors the pattern in consistent: their names disappear, and are being substituted afterwards by Spaniard sailors who either went to America far later or never went at all because where the result of the censors imagination.
Despite Casaus says that they where all from Palos Roselly de Lorgues has demonstrated that none of the crew of the Santa Maria where from Palos.
There is a clear fact though: the fact that the text “List of the people who went with Columbus in his first voyage” is a copy of 1498, that is not signed by the Admiral, that there is a missing page, that only forty of the hundred and twenty original sailors are in it and that only ten of them are mentioned previously by other sources induces at least at being suspicious.
7.- The Pinzon brothers
According to Casaus book, the Pinzon brothers (Alfonso, Fernando, Vicente Yanez Pinzon) lived in Palos.
By Casaus also we know that Alfonso Pinzon had been in Rome at Inocnecius the VIII pope’s library. That he had been in Rome is known also by several witnesses.
It’s curious though because the Royal attorney and the Generalitat’s loyal ambassador in Rome at that age was Alfons Anes Pincon.
It is also known that Columbus organized the first voyage with Fernando Yanez Pinzon.
It happens that the deputy of the Generalitat’s royal treasure of the age was Ferran Anes Pincon.
And yet another coincidence is that in the uprising of the Generalitat against John II it is recorded the name of a knight called Vicens Anes Pincon from Pals de l’Emporda.
[Imatge text - Fragment of a letter from the councils of Barcelona to the prince Ferran on 1479 where he is told that between the attackers to Barcelona’s port is Vicens Anes Pincon from Pals]
There is no registry that the three brothers with the same where born in Palos and all induces to think that the names as well as the name of the town itself was indiscriminately translated.
The fallacious of a certain Columbus that coming from Portugal would find Rabida and by predestination with the Pincon brothers in Palos de Moguer is absolutely discredited by Juan de Castilla in “Elegies of the gentlemen of Indies” where is proved that Columbus wrote to the Pincon brothers explaining them his project before going to find them telling them that “for being experienced sailors he sent his letters far before” which explains the previous friendship that can only come from the age when they fought together against John the II.
8.- The andalusian sailors with Catalonian cap
Another proof that the original sailors where Catalonian rather than andalusian or from extremadura or castile is the what they ware which was distinctively Catalonian.
For starters Juan de la Cosa born in Santander according to the traditional historiography although no document gives it credit is oddly painted with the typical Catalonian hat as conserved at Madrid’s National Museum.
Obviously the use of the Barretina (Catalonian hat) could have not been taken neither from Santander nor Andalusia if there where the places where the Armada was being prepared.
Below is the map of the geographical area where the Barretina was used by Romanic peoples which does not include neither Extremadura nor Castile nor Andalusia or any of the Biscay golf peoples. The use of the Barretina had been a characteristic between the Catalonian sailors and army although having less tradition upon the latest.
[Map of the geographical area of the Barretina amidst Romanic peoples which does not include Andalusia, Castile or Cantabria]
It happens that in Catalonia there is reported and documentation about a sailor called Joan de la Cossa who was one of the major military characters of the Generalitat in the uprising against John II. He was governor of Provence and was in the Emporda with his brother Gaspar count of Troy and Great Senescal of Provence.
Rey Pastor and Garcia Camarero’s book “The Majorcan cartography” we can find that the cartographic school of Seville “was burned by Don Juan de la Cosa which was the remote successor of the cartographic school of Majorca”. It is far more faceable that this Majorcan influence had come from being from somewhere near Majorca. Like Catalonia.
Zuloaga also painted Juan Sebastian Elcano with Barretina which induces to believe that this great sailor defined traditionally as Basque was probably Catalonian too.
If we look closer to the signature probably modified of Juan Sebastian Elcano we can observe that is written “del Canos” rather than Elcano.
It happens to be and being documented in the Catalonia of that age Joan Cacirea del Canos father of the lord of Montcortes, Clariana, el Canos and la Goda (in the Segarra shire). We also know by world atlas of 1545 that there was an isle called JoanCanos which seems a bit too much of a coincidence.
Also Theodor De Bry in his book “Americae” dated the 1559 shows the first sailors who arrived to America with Columbus and they are clearly wearing the Catalonian hat Barretina.
[First sailors at the New World with “saravells” and Barretina according to the book “Americae” by Theodor De Bry. 1559]
We can also see the censors hand in this issue looking at several books we can see that the word Barretina has been translated by “red cap” or “Bordeaux cap” and other colours which shows an exceeding variety of opinions which can only be because of a poor manipulation.
In the “first relation” from Hernan Cortes we find that arriving at Saint John’s isle the Mexican conquistador uses the barretina hat as a friendship sign to the indigenous chiefs. In the “first relation” he says “to make the Indians trust him, Cortes gave them two shirts… several red hats and several couple of zaraveles and with those wares did they go to the chiefs”. Cortes’s description is very interesting because apart from giving them some barretina hats makes clear that he gave them “zaraveles” which is the translation to Spanish of the Catalonian “saravells” which are a wide trousers used by a lot of south Catalonians and the Valencian country also from the kingdom of Aragon.
When De Bry publishes pictures about sailors with the barretina hat, drying their ropes near the fire he also paints them with “saravells” trousers which reinforces the fact that the first discoverers where Catalonians.
The same happens with Bernal Diaz del Castillo’s tale “True History of the Conquest of New Spain”, in which explains that to please some chefs Cortes bring “a red hat with a gold medal”. What is now clear is that this hat was a barretina hat and the fact that the medal was a Saint George in horse killing a dragon is a clear sign for Saint George is the patron saint of Catalonia and Aragon.
It is clear then after all that evidence that the sailors that went with Columbus in the first voyage and established themselves in Cuba and then went to Mexico with Cortes did also wear hats.
We will also refer to what the discoverer said in his “On board diary” the 11th of October speaking about the moment in which the crew descended to land and took possession of the New World. We read “I. To make them have us in friendship and because I knew they would be people that would better convert to our saint faith by love rather than force gave to some of them beautiful red hats”. The same happens when a native that came with canoe from Saint Salvador’s island was taken by sailors and boarded into the ship. Columbus said to them “And he was in to the front of the ship being all seen by myself sent him to be brought to me and gave him a red hat”.
It seems that the red hats didn’t please to the copiers for in the Spanish version of Ferran Colom’s book, when he describes the 15th passage the text doesn’t say the discoverer gave to the native a red hat but only says “some things”. Instead the Italian version of the paragraph of the 11th day says that Columbus gave them “a red hat”.
The mythology of the traditional teachings about Isabel of Castile lending her jewellery to finance the expedition was already turned down by Francisco Martinez Martinez in “The discovery of America and the jewellery of the queen Isabel”. Quoting the author “…the fake modern histories shadow interesting circumstances, inventing a patriotic and poetic legend but totally false at the same time”.
Neither did the very excellent queen lend nor sell her jewellery for she didn’t have possession of them by being in Valencia.
No serious historian today gives credit to the tale but the consequences remaining that induce to people to think that the organization of the company was done in Castile because Isabel was her queen rather than the truth which is that was a project born and linked with the Aragonese-Catalonian crown who carries it forth and appropriates it being excluded afterwards of the profits of it.
How would be possible for Castile to finance an expedition and allow all the preparations and the taking off being done in Catalonia as already demonstrated?
10.- The taking of possession. Another historical manipulation
It has always been said that the discovery of America was a Castilian enterprise. If Columbus would have taken possession for Castile or in its name the chronicles would describe the quartered flag with castles and lions of Castile and Leon in the land taking. Even the adulterated history we inherited does not state that.
In Ferran Colom’s “History of the Admiral” says “The admiral took land with the armed boat and the royal flag”. The same was done by the other vessels (Alfons lanyes and Vicenc lanyes), who took land with their boats and the enterprise flags which was a green cross with an F in a side and crowns at the other in memory of Isabel and Fernando.
In the same way, Casaus in the “General History of the Indies” says “The Admiral took the royal flag and the two captains the flags of the green cross that the admiral carried in all his ships as a sign”
It seems then that there where two kind of flags: the royal and the enterprise’s one.
About the royal flag it’s curious because in both cases is being spoken about one royal flag but which one? Castile’s or the Aragonese-Catalonian crown? If it was Castile’s is sure that the censors would have specified so or wouldn’t have eliminated the adjective.
Is because of that that we are entitled to think that the kingdom who owned the flag (the Aragonese-Catalonian crown) had been eliminated of both texts as we will demonstrate now.
The disappearing flags are common in the pictures of the age. In the first edition of “Americae” (1559) by Theodor de Bry the three vessels have Catalonian flags while in posterior published editions those Catalonian flags are now shadowed and even one of them have clearly remade the Castile-Leon arms.
In Lopez de Gomara’s “General History of the Indies and the conquest of Mexico” we can read “…said that the Pope in Rome (Alexander VI), representative of Christ in earth with absolute power upon souls and religion had given those lands [the Indies] to the very powerful king of Castile his lord” which is false proving the bad skill of the censor because Alexander VI as Catalonian was only serve of one king. The Aragonese-Catalonian king.
About the cross flag: in “Historical News of the conquest of Terra Firma”, Pedro Simon says “They jumped to the ground with the royal flag wide opened which was the one given for the enterprise with a green cross”. The flag of Castile is never mentioned. The only repeatedly mentioned is the cross flag. Curiously enough one of the most used Catalonian flags used by the royal Catalonian army in at the age was Saint George’s flag as demonstrated in a letter by Pere el Cerimonios to his brother Ferran the 6th of February 1359 in which we can read “…we have ordered that all cavalry squadrons on battle day shall be signed by Saint George’s flag. And we order and ask you to do throughout you all the said sign which shall be white with the red cross”.
The cross of Saint George is then in the Catalonian wars.
We should remind at that point that the official books are manipulated when they say that Columbus’s enterprise flag was green. The very odd thing is that the green cross doesn’t have any national sense; it doesn’t belong to any king, nor does it to any army of the Iberian peninsula.
The historian Gerard Garrigue in his book “Chistope Colomb. Les cles de l’enigme”: “The green colour is a mystery because is a seldom colour for a cross. There is only one religious order who adopted a green cross. That was the Saint Lazarus order in Jerusalem”. It is neither a national nor royal sign then. Not being able to find an answer to the mystery says “we ignore why Columbus adopts such a singular sign”. It has a clear answer though. Because the cross was not green but red. The censorship changed the name of the colours substituting the red by the green trying to erase the political significance of the flag.
To remove any doubt about the red colour of the flag and thanks to the poor skill of the censors and the difficulty to control all texts related to the discovery of America there are remaining texts with the original colour as in “Relation of the things of Yucatan” by Diego de Landa where we can read “…arriving Cortes to New Spain he started colonising and the called the first town Vera-Cruz according to his flag the red cross of Saint George”.
The fact that there has been manipulation about the colours is being demonstrated by the diversity of colours with which is called the flag of Catalonia. For some chronics as the Franciscan Montoliu the Cortes’s flag had “a red cross upon black”. For Dorantes de Zalazar the cross “was black upon yellow”. For Cervantes de Zalazar the flag “was black upon blue and white”. Probably each censor used the colour of his favourite football club.
As the pictures we can see in the “Letter” by Columbus published by Jacobb Wolff in Brasilia show how at the ship of the second page a Catalonian flag.
The same happen in the cover of the “Letter” by Columbus published in Brasilia by Johannes Bergmann d’Olpe. A ship appears again at the second page with the Catalonian flag. The same flag that Columbus’s men carry in the taking of terra firma and again in the fight against the rebels leaded by Porres. All recorded in the “Americae” by Theodor de Bry in 1559.
[The troops of Columbus in combat with the Catalonian flag according to “Americae” by Theodor de Bry in 1559]
Using only the copies of the “Letter” published in Castile the Catalonian flag does not appear anywhere and when it does appear is because of the lack of skill by the censor.
There are pictures though in which Saint George’s and the Catalonian flag appear in Columbus ship regarding the discovery of America. The first is in the National Library in Paris from 1494 to illustrate the arrival to the Indies. The importance of this picture is enormous because it will also be in the cover of the “Book of the sea consulate” when published in Barcelona in 1502. The second picture is Columbus ship in “Portuguese letter of the Indian Ocean” dated by Martinez-Hidalgo about 1510. Saint George’s cross is in the main mast and the Catalonian flag is clearly visible in the vessel’s castle. Finally in a Portuguese map by 1590 again appear Catalonian flags as possession of the new continental dominions.
There are plenty of those proofs discrediting the traditional Castilian Historiography which for long years attempted to consider unrelated the Aragonese-Catalonian crown with the discovery of America.
11.- Novelty titles and honours
Clearly showing the true nature of the new world’s taking of possession is the political titles asked by Columbus in the “Capitulations book” in the new possessions to be. He asked for the titles of Admiral of the Oceanic sea and Viceroy of and principal governor.
All those titles where characteristics of Catalonia and only the Aragonese-Catalonian crown could have given them. It cannot be acceptable from an historic point of view to consider any viceroy in the XV century’s Castile. Therefore the American viceroy-led governments which where the main structure of the Spanish administrative government at the Indies of almost three centuries inherited the that structure from the previous institutions in Catalonia, Aragon, Valencia, Majorca, Sardinia, Naples and Sicily all belonging to the Aragonese-Catalonian crown.
There are also coincidences between the language used at the viceroy, deputies, and governor’s appointment clauses in the new world and those used for the same purpose in the Mediterranean possessions.
Comparing the “capitulations” in the Archives of the Aragonese crown in Barcelona with another similar document in Simancas and Indies archives we can once again observe the influence of the censors.
The first difference we observe is that while the Catalonian archive is according to the prescriptions of the chancellery of the Aragonese crown the ones in the Castilian chancellery are according to the prescriptions of the Castilian chancellery not having bothered to delete the name of the secretary Coloma who signs the “Capitulations” stored in Barcelona.
There are other changes at the Castilian side though. The omission the “General” title referring to the Governor (which affiliates it to the Aragonese crown), the elimination of the phrase “in satisfaction of what has been discovered” because this phrase gives evidence of a pre-discovery. It has also been systematically changed the kingdoms which the Catholic Kings possessed erasing all Catalonian involvement.
The evidence is fundamental regarding the differences between both archives as is the nature of the titles Columbus asked for.
The influence and involvement of Catalonia to the judicial organization of America is even more specific taking into account that in the orders of 29 of May 1493 it is specified that Columbus would be able to appoint judges “as they do other viceroys and governors of their highnesses”. But “Their highnesses” are obviously as kings of the Aragonese-Catalonian crown because those titles never existed in Castile.
12.- How is it possible that the documents of an exclusively Castilian expedition are stored in the archive of the Aragonese crown in Barcelona?
The traditional Spanish historiography says that the 17th of April 1492 the “Capitulations” between Columbus and the Catholic Kings for the discovery of the new world where signed in Santa Fe. Is a contract between two parts for which Columbus asks for certain government titles and economic privilege in exchange of the findings of new and yet unknown lands and to put them under sovereignty of the Crown.
As we already know the censors acted we see in no wonder that the originals have already disappeared. We will though analyse step by step what the Spanish history says.
First: the documents are said to be signed in Santa Fe but at that time Santa Fe in Granada where only a tent camp. Not a town.
Second: the Catholic Kings didn’t sign themselves those “Capitulations” but instead was done by Joan Coloma which was the royal secretary of the Aragonese Kingdom. This makes clearer that the fact that Columbus leaved land form Catalonia as already being demonstrated previously. I would be rather odd to think that Mr Joan Coloma from Catalonia and Columbus would travel to Andalusia to sign themselves those documents just to return home afterwards.
There is yet more evidence though because if the “Capitulations” where entirely Castilian documents then they would have been prepared, stamped and registered by civil servants of the Castilian chancellorship and being conserved as the remaining documents regarding the issue in the Castilian archives.
It was not. Instead the document was registered in the archives of the Aragonese crown.
As in all documentation that has disappeared the most ancient document is in the 3569th book in the “Diversorum sigulli secreti” section in Simancas archive.
Yet more evidence that the document was concerning the Aragonese crown is the fact that even the Concorde of 1475 for the union of both Hispanic crowns didn’t allow the royal colitigant to use civil servants from the Aragonese-Catalonian crown to sign documents of high importance in Castilian politics. In our case not only they where signed by a Catalonian civil servant but also stored in Catalonia.
13.- Castile. Paradise of gardening
It is not bizarre at that point in time once seen the way the censors automatically excluded Catalonia and Aragon from the American discovery to understand that all references written by Casaus in the “General History of the Indies” of those names where replaced by Castile or Spain.
It would have been difficult to see if the changes made by the censors wouldn’t be so far from reality and strange. In Casaus book we can find statements like:
* <<...there are gardens, the more famous of the world and almost even to those of Castile>>
* <<...and is all settled and harvested and as green as Castile on may or June...>>
* <<...the sweet and pleasant winds all through the night. Neither cold nor hot like Castile on May...>>
By all those descriptions Castile looks like a Mediterranean country rather than one with continental clime as it is. The references to the harvested gardens lead us to Valencia and Barcelona for is there where they where famous.
Yet to give more evidence we can quote the description of the Barcelona and Valencia of 1494 by the German writer Munzer which would point out the plain clear manipulation in Casaus’s book.
Muner says of Barcelona: “From Saint Anthony’s door to occident is full of gardens and tree plantations such as lemon-trees, palm trees, pines and vineyards. The land is fruitful and plentiful”. Of Valencia says: “We where taken to see the gardens of the city, which are excellently planted of lemon-treed, orange-trees, etc”.
We can find plenty of those examples giving evidence of the attempt of the censors to un-relate Catalonia with the discovery of America.
14.- The great Castilian Mediterranean Empire
The lack of skill by the censors whilst manipulating the books relating to the discovery of America is again evident in Casaus’s book “Of the beauty of the lands they saw referred and exceeded all isles of Castile in fruitfulness, beautifulness and goodness” Which where all those islands of Castile? It is obvious the continuous replacements of the word “Catalonia” by “Castile” because the islands being talked about are no other than Majorca, Minorca, Ibiza, Sardinia, Sicily, Formentera and Cabrera.
Even that there is yet some Spanish historians that assured that the isles referred by Casaus where the Canary Islands without taking in account that in the year in which Columbus makes the description Castile was still fighting for the Canary Islands. Pretending an imperial Castile ruler of the waves with dominions around the world on the XV century is a pretension ridiculous and very sad indeed.
15.- Castile land of fish
The falsehood reaches ridiculous proportions when spoken about Castile as a fishing country and rich in fish.
The proofs of the name replacing are evident in the names used to describe the fish found in Casaus’s narrative.
First the “pijota”. “pijota” in Spanish means the baby “merluza”, “pescadilla”. Well the Spanish “pescadilla” has noting to do with the long and slim fish described by Columbus for the Italian name given by his son Ferran Colom in the “History of the Admiral” in no other than “lachie”. “lachi” meaning bow or strings. Those really make sense with the Catalonian “pixota” which have a long and compressed body. The “pixota” is the common name for several eel-like fish as the white “pixota”, the red “pixota” and the “pixota de llanguet” or “pixota de carall de jan”.
The second fish is called “pompano” by Casaus and “pampani” by Ferran Colom in the Italian version. As the name is totally inexistent in Spanish the correct translation of the Catalonian “pampol” which according to the family would have to have been translated as “romero”, “cherna” or “piloto”. Is evident that the translator confused “pompano” with a tree leaf.
There are plenty of examples and not only about fish. The names of the birds have also been translated from Catalonian to Spanish without making any sense al tall. The famous “rabo de junco”, which does not exist in Spanish as a bird’s name and which Casaus records and Ferran Colom mentions continuously is no other than the Catalonian “cua de jonc”, a very common bird in the albufera of Valencia.
Looking at the descriptions made by Casaus and Columbus we can clearly see that the Spanish translation would have been “pato rabudo”.
Nevertheless there is still in the Antilles an island called Montserrat where a yellow and black bird is called “oriol” by the local people. According to the island inhabitants this bird was named by the discoverer because it looked like one of his land. It is no other than the known Catalonian bird “oriol”.
16.- Castilian history?
If Castile pretended to have all the new lands by it’s own even if it where only a literary possession it was necessary for this desire to adequate to the reality but because the reality not only was inexact to the history but also frontally opposed the censors decided to change the reality.
In that fashion, the “On board diary” by Columbus in which he narrated precisely, exactly, day and night all the facts happening in the first voyage of the discovery was the objective of the censorship machinery. For this reason is not conserved nowadays any of the original scripts of the admiral that make reference at their voyages in America. Not even the first copies made at the moment. Anyway we have inherited a fairly exact copy of the facts happened in the first voyage of the discovery. It was thanks to father Casaus that included in his “General History of the Indies” the original quotations by Columbus although mutilated and confused.
The fact that manipulation censorship happened is widely accepted by the historians and there is plenty of examples.
This is a brief resume of a comparative study of the “General History of the Indies” by Casaus (the copy conserved in the National Library in Madrid) with the “History of the Admiral” by Ferran Colom and with a resumed copy of the “On-board diary” (also in the National Library in Madrid).
Those three books where made following the same original by Columbus disappeared nowadays.
Monday, 12 of November
History of the Indies: Thought the admiral that he should bring from this Cuban island or terra firma as he already suspected some Indians to Castile for them to learn the language of Castile.
On-board diary: Hi thought good to take some people from that river to the kings se they could learn our language.
History of the Admiral: He commanded them to take some inhabitant from that isle for he had the purpose to take one from each part to Castile so he could give account of the matters of his land.
Thursday, 6th of December:
History of the Indies: All that land seemed very high, of small trees like the ones in Castile, like the coscoll tree and the Cyclamini-Quercetum.
On-board diary: All that island seemed more mountain-full like no other found: the trees where smaller and a lot of them of the nature of Spain like the coscoll tree and the Cyclamini-Quercetum and others.
History of the admiral: But the land have little mountains and the trees are smaller. Similar of those of Castile amidst those there was oaks, arboc tree and murtra trees.
Monday, 10th of December
History of the Indies: They fished a lot of the fishes in Castile: albor fish, roger fish, pixotes, gall fish, salpes fish, llisses fish, corbines fish, gambetes fish and European pilchards.
On-board diary: They saw a lot of fish from Castile, albor fish, roger fish, pixotes, gall fish, salpes fish, llisses fish, corbines fish, gambetes fish and also saw European pilchards.
History of the admiral: Seeing that the island of Bohio was so big. That the lands and their trees seemed at those of Spain and that in an occasion in which the sailors throw their nets they cached a lot of fish like the ones in Spain. So: horse fish, llisses, salmons, sabogues, gall fish, salpes fish, corbines fish, European pilchards, and cancers resolved to give to the island a name according with Spain so in the 9th of December gave it the name of the Hispaniola.
17.- Not allowed to be Catalonian
If necessary to delete the names of Catalonians in the chronicles and to create and spread the idea that those didn’t intervene in the discovery, evangelisation, and settlement of America the censors had to change the nature of the discoverer.
It was necessary to eliminate all relation between the discoverer and Catalonia. To do so the discoverer was made Italian-like. The name “Colom” was changed by “Colombo” and a similar origin was searched. Genovese. That came in favour for in the Spanish language of the age there was the oddity to call “Genovese” all foreigners which Columbus was not being a Castilian himself.
Anyway, the origins of the discoverer have been changing depending of the fashion of each age: there is a manuscript in the British Museum in London and another in the National Library in Madrid in which he is said to came from Milan. In the Royal Academy of the History and in the National Library of Spain he is called a Genovese.
Manuel Gomez Moreno and Juan Carriazo demonstrated that the manuscript of the National Library in Madrid dated of 1594 is mysteriously with handwriting of the XVII century. It seems that the censors did their own thing again.
The evidence is so wide that I will filter for the ones that demonstrate the Catalonian condition of Columbus which make the whole official history hard to believe. It is clearly evident in all European publishing of the “Letter” by Columbus which announced the discovery where we can read “Colom” almost ever. In the Italian versions the evidence of being translated from the Catalonian is plain.
The quantity of names with which the new lands of America and the genealogic links with the Colom-Bertran family from Barcelona and the statements by Ferrer de Blanes in which is clearly written that the admiral and himself have the same lords are too much of evidence to ignore.
In the “memorandum” that Columbus gave to Antoni Torres to be transmitted to the kings the 30th of January 1494 Columbus asked to Their Highnesses “as King and Queen my natural lords to whom service I desire to finish my days”
This expression (Natural lords) is key to reveal that his Catalonian nature. This expression implies the speaker that he is subject by the natural order to those ho he is speaking. In other words: Columbus considered himself subject of the Catholic Kings by nature so by being native of one of their reigns and not from an act of naturalization of contractual submission.
Because Columbus was not natural of the crown of Castile where he was a foreigner without a doubt as he writes in plenty of documents but he was at the same time a subject of the Catholic Kings that means that he could only be natural from the other kingdoms that where not Castile but dominion of the Catholic Kings.
Therefore if Columbus was natural of Spain as testified by Ferrer de Blanes. If the German version of the “Letter” calls him “Cristoforus Colom von Hispania”. If he had the Catholic Kings as natural sovereigns but being himself a foreigner to Castile. That only can mean that he was native of any of the land of the Aragonese-Catalonian confederation.
Is because of that that there is not a single text in Italian written by the admiral. Not even when writing to his supposed Italian friends.
There are plenty of proofs demonstrating the links between Columbus and Catalonia:
* The grand-daughter of the discoverer was married with the Duke of Sanc de Cardona.
* Alexandre Cosco was the translator to Latin of the “Letter” by Columbus.
* Bernat Cosco is one of the heirs of the religious Francesc Colom.
* Several times Columbus wrote “Sio” at the “Book of the prophecies” as if it was his own thing.
* Casaus says in the “General History of the Indies” that the parents of the admiral “where notable people rich in a time and made poor by wars and partialities never lacking in Lombardy”. Was Henry Harrisse who denounced the lack of truth in those statements comparing with the live that lived the Colombo family in Geneva. They were never noble, never participated in a war. Nevertheless Columbus was never considered from Lombardy by any chronicle. Nor there is any documented proof that induces to think so. If we substitute back the work “Lombardy” by “Catalonia” it all makes sense because the Colom family from Barcelona where noble, participated in the war by the Generalitat against John II and yes they had to exile.
* The 28th of May 1493 the kings gave to Columbus in Barcelona the document for which they authorised him to use the employment of governing the lands of the Indies. By the powers given by the monarchs to Columbus he named Pere Margarit as head of the military force sent to the New World in the second expedition. This naming can only have the explanation that amongst Margarit and Columbus there was a previous relation or a common nation. Several rhetoricians demonstrated that the full name of Pere Margarit was Pere Bertran Margarit the cousin of Bertran de Gelida which where cousins of the Colom-Bertran of Barcelona. The link between the discoverer and the family is yet more evident.
* The atmosphere of Catalonian relationships of Columbus is widened even more with the following proof: the relations between Lluis Santangel and the discoverer are know by al and the involvement of this sailor in the funding of the first voyage. It happens to be that Santangel was son of the Valencian canviador and very well connected with the banks of Barcelona, Valencia and Zaragoza in 1466. in 1472 he went to Barcelona and established himself in the house of Guillem-Joan Colom in Sant Domenech street in the Jew quarter.
* The link between Christopher Columbus and the Colom-Bertran family of Barcelona is evident once again by the heraldic. We know that Columbus used to bring with himself his own arms gained by his family and that those arms where widened by the monarchs in Barcelona from a document of the 24th of May 1493. Over the shield there is clearly seen with the round world and with a cross upon it which curiously coincides with the Catalonian family of Mont-Ros. If we examine the genealogic tree of the Colom from Barcelona we can clearly see the link with the Mont-Ros: Lluis Colom Bertran was married with Violant de Mont-Ros.
* Regarding the surname of the discoverer we know thanks to Casaus and Ferran Colom that when Columbus signed in Latin before the discovery of America he did it as “Columbus de Terra-rubea” (or in other versions “Columbus de Terra-rubra”) which is no other than the Latin equivalent of the Catalonian surnames “Colom” and “Mont-Ros”.
* Continuing with the arms of Columbus in the second quarter there is a rampant lion which by historiography inertia has bee associated with the lion of Leon in Castile. It has been founded though that the Marimon family from Barcelona had as heraldic sign the very same rampant lion. That wouldn’t mean anything if they weren’t linked with the Colom family: Guillem Ramon Colom grandfather of Lluis Colom married Catarina de Marimon. It looks to much of a coincidence.
* The remaining proof in the arms of the discoverer is the blue line in the fifth quarter of the arms. Once again this line relates to the Bertran family which with the So where the only two Catalonian families characterized by a line.
In resume, the relation between the Colom-Bertran family and Christopher Columbus matches with exact precision.
18.- The Toponymy
Another surprising fact is the translation to Spanish of the toponymy. In that way, the “Ferrandina” and “Illa Bella” in the “Letter” by Columbus where changed in Casaus texts for “Fernandina” and “Isabela”.
This is just an example. There are more severe examples: “Cotlliure” for “Coluna”, “La punta del Galiot” for “La Punta de la Galera”, “Fortalesa de la Nativitat” for “Fortaleza de la Navidad”, etc.
According to the columbine history the enterprise of the discovery was exclusively supported by Castile. How is then possible that Casaus speaks ducats, excellents, florins and golden marks which are currencies from the Aragonese crown?
For instance, when Medinaceli’s duke provides Columbus with what that one required for the expedition mentions “up to 3000 or 4000 ducats”. The ducats weren’t introduced in Castile since 13th of June 1497 by “Pragmatica de Medina del Campo”. It is obvious that the economic operation had to happen in any of the Aragonese crown dominions where this currency was used at John’s II age.
Another example by Ferran Colom in “History of the Admiral” when mentioning “The admiral only asked for five hundred shields to prepare the armada”. Because the “shield” wasn’t introduced into the peninsula since 1535 it is evident that the substitution of “some coin” by the “shields” was done by the censors after that date with the intention of making the mentioned currency disappear.
There is a further censorship of the currencies. It has not to do with the payment but with the price with which the discoverer taxes some of the exchanges of American products done by his sailors. While the German version of the “Letter” by Columbus published in Strasbourg on 1497 speaks about “Golden ducats”, giving clear evidence of the Catalonian nature of the currency the Latin versions published in Castile speak about “Golden solidus” a Castilian currency at that time.
20.- The Catalonian ill-spellings by the Admiral
A “catalanada” is an ill-spelling done by a Catalonian when speaking in other latin-derived languages due to the close connections between them.
The admiral’s “On-board diary” by Columbus is full of catalanadas. It’s not understandable that an Italian could write with such a Catalonian style without ever having been in Catalonia.
Let’s see some examples:
* <> (7 Agost)
* <> (29 set)
* <> (4 Oct)
* <> (13 Oct)
* <> (15 Oct)
* <> (17 Oct)
* <> (21 Oct)
Also the fact that in the “On-board diary” is empty of Italian syntactic structures and that there is no other original text written in Italian led to think that the “On-board diary” that reached our days is no other than a translation of a Catalonian one.
The manipulation of history has been and still is a weapon the winner uses upon the loser and a country needs its history. Castile and Spain lately have tried it several times unsuccessfully.
Thus there are serious reasons to start doubting about the official history and specially in the issue of America.
It is time to understand that that naval quest couldn’t ever be done by an ignorant crew who didn’t know where they where going and without knowing who was leading them.
There is clear evidence that where the Catalonians those who discovered America and that the official history has been a lie at the service of Spain but a lie at last regardless of being widely believed for a long time.

Kindom (Do No Harm Communities) is the dream for freedom, but it is the dream for the freedom of those around us who also live the dream of freedom, because it is in living for the freedom of others that we get our freedom. When we live for the dreams of Kindom of those around us, we live life as a gift because we live for (dedicate our lives to) their dream of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance, etc, just as they live for our Kindom dreams too. This is true co-creation (cooperation) with no attack on the uniqueness of each of us. When we live this way, we have no need for any man-made system - everything/everyone has already been taken care of by our love for life.
Just as we do not have to jump 10 feet across the room to grab our next breath, neither do we have to worry about food, water and shelter because it has all been taken care of as we each co-create Kindoms/Kin-Domains for everyone. Now everybody and everything of the dream of life that is Kindom/Paradise is free (has been set free once again). The issue is greed and selfishness, power and control trips, arrogance, ignorance, being fed many many lies and being traumatised. The issue is not overpopulation - there is more than enough land available for every family to have a hectare (2.5 acres Kin-Domain) to care for. The land of Australia can provide a Kin-Domain for every family across Earth, each with a food forest, clean fresh drinking water and plenty of space for building natural do no harm habitats and with plenty of land left over.
Everyone must have the freedom to take full-responsibility for their lives, for the water they drink, the food they eat and for their shelter. Currently, "The System" forces everyone to give up taking full-responsibility so that we become grown up children accustomed to sucking on the nipples of "The System" corporations for everything, having to use money to get by and to follow the rules of money because we are not co-creating freedom, peace, truth, joy and abundance for each other. Money only leads to haves and have nots and all the abuse, manipulation and distractions that we are subjected to as slaves to money.
When we give up living for other's Kindom dreams, we start creating hell ("The System") all around us because we become self-centred - now it's all about "my freedom","my money", "my land", "my belief", "my saviour", "mine", "mine","mine", "i","i", "i", "own", "own", "own", etc. To protect what we claim we own requires a man-made system with FORCE to protect those self-centred claims. This is ALL trauma based and all story-telling (brainwashing/braindirtying).
Our true freedom comes when we set our thoughts of freedom into motion so that we live freedom rather than just talking and thinking about it while we still slave for "The System". Kindom will not happen while we meditate for hours in the bush or do yoga retreats or wait for Jesus or follow the processes of the OPPT (One People's Public Trust now called One People). This is not freedom because we are not living freedom because we are living the story-telling of Jesus or Zeitgeist or The Secret or Thrive or One Earth/Consciousness/People.
Living Kindom is very, very hard work as we set about repairing the damage to MAN/Earth/Nature that we are ALL responsible for but the burden becomes lighter the more of us put our life-energy into the dream of returning Earth to Paradise. Day-after-day, we all have to work our arses off until Kindom is all around us (MAN) once again. This is the price we pay to set each other free on a piece of land (Kin-Domain), so that no one is under the image-power (education/brainwashing/story-telling) of another MAN anymore and so that everyone can have their space of love to create and live their unique, do no harm dreams. This only happens once we have the Kindoms set up so that everyone is provided for.
Once we re-create the food forests, whether on land or in the suburbs, we can re-claim our freedom, breaking the strangle-hold of "The System" because we are no longer reliant on its services and benefits and no longer turning each other into slaves of "The System", cogs in the wheels of "The System" machine. If we don't put the effort in to set everyone and everything free all around us then we still live in HELL ("The System"). The key is to live for everyone else's freedom so that we can have it too.

All the best
Arthur & Fiona Cristian
Love For Life
We feel there is an essential peaceful do no harm transition required to get all of MAN back to standing on MANS feet without reliance upon another MAN for water, food, shelter. As it stands everyone in "The System" are highly dependent and reliant on the "group mind-set" that forms "The System" of slaves providing services and benefits for the emotionally addicted slaves to "The System" (and you can put us in the same basket too). The transition is to get MAN back to relying ONLY on nature without 3rd party interlopers, intermeddlers, interceders getting in the way. The transition is a team effort with the foresight for setting all of MAN free down-the-line so that MAN is no longer dependent on slaves and masters providing services, benefits, privileges and exclusivity while being bound to contracts, rituals, procedures, conditions, rules & regulations which compromises MAN severely.
This transition is all about shifting from limited liability/responsibility to full liability/responsibility. This full responsibility is all about caring for our health, nature all around us, clean uncorrupted (pure) water and food, partner/co-creator, children, shelter, animal-friends in partnership, etc. In "The System", we are already together destroying each other - we have to come together to create peace together so that we can all have peace. We cannot live peacefully when we are islands, not taking full responsibility for the lives of those around us until EVERYONE can take full responsibility for their life, which means that EVERYONE is healed of system trauma. In "The System", we all come together to make slaves of each other - now is the moment to come together to set each other free, to live for each other's freedom, peace, joy and abundance. Once we have set each other free, we are free.

"The Steps Of Kindom"
Once we fix these issues, we or our children or our descendants to come, can start focusing on the even bigger picture of getting back to where our ancestors were, as breatharyan's, before they fell into non-sense images to be enslaved by them.
All the best to you and your family

The Cristian family and The Love for Life Campaign are apolitical, non-religious, non-violent, anti weapons, anti drugs (both pharmaceutical and recreational) and anti any ideology that denies the existence of Do No Harm Communities (Kindoms) and suppresses the uniqueness and freedom of all men, women and children.
The Cristian family and our Love For Life work is unaligned to any big business corporation, intelligence agency, government body, "system" law, "system" think tanks, "system" green or environmental movements, religion, cult, sect, society (fraternity, brotherhood, sisterhood, order, club, etc,) secret or not, hidden agenda, law or sovereignty group, occult, esoteric, New Age or Old Age.
The Cristian family supports and promotes the remedy that brings an everlasting peace, freedom, truth, joy, abundance and do no harm for all of life without causing loss of uniqueness or the need for having slaves and rulers. We are not into following the one in front or being sheeple. Most importantly, we take full-responsibility for everything we think, feel and do.
The Cristian family are not Christians.
Arthur & Fiona Cristian
Love For Life
Being of clear brain, heart and intention, we each declare the following to be true:
• We have no intention of ending our own lives.
• We will not tolerate suppression of truth, ideas, freedom, or our work. We stand for freedom of speech.
• We stand together to support others in the expression of truths and freedom to speak out no matter how radical those ideas may seem.
• Standing for freedom takes courage; together we shall be strong in the face of all odds.
• If it is ever claimed that we have committed suicide, encountered an unfortunate accident, died of sickness/disease, disappeared, been institutionalized, or sold out financially or in any other way to self-interested factions, we declare those claims false and fabricated.
• We testify, assert and affirm without reservation, on behalf of all those who have dedicated their lives to the ending of secrecy and the promotion of freedom of thought, ideas and expression that we shall prevail.
• We Do Not Have Multiple Personality Disorders

We are turning the Love for Life Quick User Guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 into a blog of all the main insights of our work since March 2005, whether through articles, videos, podcasts or discussions/debates.
As we do not have the time to compile everything we have written into a book, as many have suggested we do, compiling all our most important work into one area of the website is a way of providing easy access to this work so those interested are able to fully comprehend the big picture.
Instead of having to find our different articles, videos, etc, in various parts of the website, it will all be accessible here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385.
As amateurs and posted in the Quick User Guide below the Facebook links, we're currently creating and posting a series of videos called "The Dream Of Life" which covers the ground of all the Love For Life insights. We plan to have the videos completed by December 31st 2012. Once this is behind us, our intention is to create a 2 hour or so video covering the body of this work. All videos are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 and uploaded in Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife.
We have started recording songs, with others, that express the themes of Love For Life. They are now being posted on Arthur's YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/ArthurLoveForLife and are embedded in the quick user guide http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608. We have over 100 songs to record. A few rough demos have already been used as the soundtrack on the first "Dream of Life" video.
Also, everything we, the Cristian family, have gone through, from bank fraud and the theft of the family home to death threats and attempts on Arthur's life, is documented in the Quick User Guide too. If you, the reader, are prepared to put the effort in, you will comprehend the extent to which we have all been tricked into becoming slaves, giving up our uniqueness and our full-responsibility for life and destroying everything of life to the point where life is in danger of dying out completely. You will also comprehend the remedy to all this chaos; a remedy that requires only love for life and the determination to do what needs to be done. Though our focus is very strongly on the remedy that creates a world of freedom, truth, peace, joy, abundance and Do No Harm for all of life without loss of uniqueness or the need for slaves and rulers, we realise that it is vital to comprehend how to get there and what stops us from getting there. This is why there is so much information on the hows and whys of everything going wrong in the world today. We are not into peddling conspiracy theories, we are into routing out all forms of organised crime.

Note: Updated Wednesday 17th June 2009 8.00pm Sydney Time.
Love For Life does not support harm doing in any shape or form. However, we are supporters of free speech and post articles, documentaries, etc, that represent a wide cross section of ideas. See the Love For Life extensive research library where over 11,000 individual documents, articles, videos, podcasts and debates/discussions are posted: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/82. We clearly see the evidence of the destruction to MAN and Earth that has been caused by ALL religions over the centuries and are therefore not supporters of religions, cults, sects or any group that demands conformity of thought, speech or action, or has rules, regulations or rituals that must be followed. Religions, nationalities and cultural "identities" are formed as a result of the brainwashing we receive from childhood. They are part of the tactics the Establishment uses to keep us all divided from one another and fighting one another.
All religions promote discrimination and division, leading to hatred and even violence and murder. None of them have yet to produce a remedy to all the suffering, poverty, unhappiness and discrimination in the world. If any religion truly had the remedy to all the suffering on earth, there would no longer be any suffering. What have Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, atheism and the New Age done to end the suffering in the world?
The Love For Life website has information from all sides on many subjects, whether about Islam, Judaism, Christianity, Law, health, psychology, mind control, vaccination, aspartame, MSG, Chemtrails etc. There are over 11,000 individual articles, documentaries, etc on the website and they are so diverse that we are sure that everyone would be able to find something they loved and something they hated, if they took the time to search. If we removed all the articles hated by everyone, there would probably be nothing left! We are not anti anyone but freedom of speech is freedom of speech and no one should condemn the work of another without taking the time to research the subject themselves. Yes, there are articles by those who have a less-than-rosy-viewpoint of Judaism, but there are also articles on the dark side of Tibetan Buddhism (and it is very dark) for those who are interested in the truth: Tibet - Buddhism - Dalai Lama: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6271 Should the authors of these articles be abused and imprisoned for daring to challenge the widely conceived reputation of Buddhism as being the religion of peace and love and that of the Dalai Lama as a saint, or should those interested be allowed to study the work and come to their own conclusions? The same applies to all the articles, documentaries, etc, about Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, New World Order, etc.
The Love for Life website also shows how the Rule of Law, the Bar, the Government, the Monarchy, the system of commerce, the local, national and multi/trans-national private corporations, all the courses and careers on offer from our universities, all the educators, scientists, academics and experts, the aristocrats and the Establishment bloodlines have also done NOTHING to end the suffering in the world. The website maps the insanity of a world where there is no help for those in need, just as there was no help available for us when we were victims of terrible bank fraud: http://loveforlife.com.au/court_case orchestrated, condoned and protected by an international crime syndicate/terrorist organisation of judges, barristers, registrars, lawyers, politicians, banksters, big business representatives, media moguls and other lackeys who, all together, put up a wall of silence despite our trying many, many avenues. After the family home was stolen and business destroyed we were left close to poverty and destitution caring for 4 young daughters. Three years later not much has changed regardless of all our efforts. Where were all the followers of all the religions to help us? Or do we have to be members of those religions to receive help from others involved in them?
We have been accused of being anti - Jewish because we had posted an excerpt from James von Brun's book: Kill the Best Gentiles! http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6054 in which he blames Jews for the problems of the world. Obviously this is not our view because of what we have stated above. We do not hate anyone, whatever religion they follow. We are always open to talk to any religious leader or politician and meet with any judge, member of the Bar, experts, academics, educators etc to share the remedy we offer that heals all the divisions between MAN and MAN, and MAN and EARTH.
Today, a representative of the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies is threatening to close the website down, because they have decided it is anti - Jewish and that we promote racism. What has the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies done to end the suffering in the world? Can they show that they are concerned with the suffering of ALL men, women and children AND ARE SEEN TO BE DOING SOMETHING ABOUT IT or are they only concerned with Jewish affairs? If so, they, along with all the other religions that only care for their own, are part of the problem, not part of the solution. The man who rang Arthur today was only concerned with Jewish affairs; he was not interested in our intentions or in anybody else, just as most Christians, Muslims, Sikhs, Catholics, etc, are only interested in their own. While we separate our lives into groups, dividing our lives from others with rules, regulations, rituals, procedures, conditions and contracts, we will never solve our problems.
No matter what we in the Western World Civilisation of Commerce have been promised by our politicians, religious leaders, scientists, educators, philosophers, etc, for the past two hundred years, all we have seen is ever-increasing destruction of men, women and children and Earth. None of the so-called experts and leaders we have been taught to rely on are coming up with a solution and none of them are taking full-responsibility for the fact that they can't handle the problem. All religious books talk about end times full of destruction and suffering but why do we have to follow this program when there is an alternative to hatred, mayhem and death? Why are our leaders following the program of destruction and death rather than exploring the do no harm alternatives? It seems that any mainstream politician, priest or academic are only interested in supporting the RULES OF THE DIVIDE, that maintain the haves and the have nots. For 200+ years, 99% of the world population have been so trained to pass on their responsibility for their lives, others and Earth, that the 1% of the population that make up the leaders of the rest of us are making all the decisions leading to the destruction of all of us and Earth. Let's not forget the education system that brainwashes the 99% of the population that we are free and have equal rights while, in fact, we are feathering the nests of those at the top.
At the root of all our problems is self-centredness, an unwillingness nurtured by the Establishment that keeps us concerned only with our own needs rather than the needs of others around us and Earth. Instead of creating and releasing acts of love for those around us as gifts to benefit them and Earth, we take, take and take, until there is nothing left. The whole point of the Love for Life website is to show people the root of all our problems and to share the remedy. The extensive research library is there to attract browsers and to provide access to information not available through mainstream channels. If the New South Wales Jewish Board of Deputies can, after careful examination of our work, prove that anything we are saying is wrong, we will be happy to accept their proof. If they cannot, and they are still insistent on closing the website down, they will be showing themselves to be traitors to MAN because they are not interested in pursuing any avenue that can end the suffering in the world.
All religions, corporations and organisations that support and maintain the Western World Civilisation of Commerce are part of the problem because our civilisation is a world of haves and have nots, exclusivity, privilege, racism, violence, hatred, poverty, sickness, discrimination, abuse, starvation, homelessness, corruption, collusion, vindictiveness, social unrest, arrogance, ignorance, fear, war and chaos. While we support civilisation, we support death and destruction.
If we truly want peace and freedom for all, we have to let go of all that which keeps us divided, and come together as MAN, conscious living co-creators of creation/life. The Love For Life website offers a remedy to the problems we all face in the form of DO NO HARM COMMUNITIES (KINDOMS): http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6608 - http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3641 For more details see here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/6511 and here: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/3385 - We also highly recommend that everyone read the brilliant Russian books called The Ringing Cedars: http://loveforlife.com.au/node/1125 - The Love For Life homepage/front-page also provides lots of inspiring remedy based information: http://loveforlife.com.au - If you want to be kept up to date with our work please register to the Love For Life mailing list here: http://loveforlife.com.au/campaign_list We usually send two postings per month. Presently (September 2011) there are over 7000 registrations reaching over 500,000 readers across Earth. The website now (September 2011) receives up to 12 million hits per month. Since December 2006, over 100 million people have visited the Love For Life website.
