DOOM WEAPONS & AUM SHINRIKYO
When it comes to Aum Shinrikyo - the sinister Japanese cult said to be responsible for the Tokyo subway Sarin attack in 1995 - almost anything is possible. But some serious journalists and independent scientists who have investigated the shadowy background of Aum, are unravelling sinuous connections that leap-frog the Aum story into another league altogether.[i]
These focus on claims that Aum were intimately involved in the research and development of futuristic doomsday weapons that make todayâs nuclear missiles look like childrenâs toys. These weapons, they believe, are so advanced that they donât âofficiallyâ exist in the armouries of the major powers. These involve the use of Tesla Electromagnetic pulse, earthquake inducing and Plasma weapons being covertly tested in remote regions of the world.
Laying at the centre of these allegations are a series of powerful earthquakes, strange fireballs and aerial lights manifesting above Western Australia. They also revolve around the major January 1995 quake which laid waste to the Japanese City of Kobe. The latter resulted in the crash of the Tokyo stock exchange - itself directly leading to the collapse of Englandâs spook-infested Barings bank. Suggestions that the Kobe event may have been caused by a laser-powered seismic weapon continue to circulate.
Extraordinarily, Aumâs charismatic guru, Shoko Asahara, predicted the Kobe quake nine days before the event. In an 8 January 1995 radio broadcast, Asahara stated âJapan will be attacked by an earthquake in 1995. The most likely place is Kobe.â Hideo Murai, the late Science and Technology minister for Aum Shinrikyo also adhered to this view. Murai - said to have been the most intelligent Japanese who ever lived - was murdered in a Yakuza orchestrated assassination shortly after speaking on the record to foreign news correspondents.[ii]

singular interest in weapons of mass destruction - including sophisticated
earthquake, weather and plasma weapons - were considered serious enough to
launch a special investigation by the US Senate Permanent Subcommittee on
Investigations. Chaired by Senator
Sam Nunn, the committee spent five months conducting hundreds of interviews
of âboth government and private
individuals.â[iv] These included classified briefings
from numerous US intelligence agencies.
Their findings were published in an October 1995, 100 page report
on the Aum cult.
The Nunn report,
in addition to outlining Aumâs large international membership
and massive finances of US$1 billion plus, also revealed the
cultâs fascination for Tesla
weapons. The Senate report describes
Aumâs visits to the New York based International Tesla
Society (ITS), where they sought to obtain a number of his books, patents
and papers. A representative
of the ITS told Senate investigators that Aumâs interest
focused on Teslaâs experiments with
âresonating frequencies,â adding that
âTesla had experimented in creating

to the Presidium in 1960, where he referred to

Not least, the Senate report mentions Teslaâs development of a âray gun in the 1930âs, which was actually a particle beam accelerator,â and which was said to be able to âshoot down an airplane at 200 miles.[vi]â Following Teslaâs death in 1943, the US government seized his papers and research notes, placing them under national security lock and key. An undoubted genius during his life, Teslaâs papers curiously remain highly classified today - 53 years later.
In addition to
visiting New Yorkâs ITS, Aum personnel also travelled to
the Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
Their studies here included researching the so called
âTesla Coilâ - a device used for alternating
currents. Additionally, they
also uncovered Teslaâs work on âhigh
energy voltage transmission and on wave amplification, which Tesla asserted
could be used to create seismological
and informative as they are, this is not the place to provide a detailed
background of Aum Shinrikyoâs
ideology. However, it is important
to note that the cult shared one common thread with their arch rivals, the
militaristic Soka Gakkai. The
latter is a truly enormous and powerful Japanese religious cult with 15 million
members and massive finances. The
cult have thoroughly infiltrated every aspect of Japanese life and, according
to veteran reporter Jack Amano, have âcovert
cellsâ operating throughout all government
departments. Every major Japanese
business corporation is riddled with members, Amano
states.[viii] Moreover, SG have enormous influence
over current Japanese foreign policy.
Both cults adhere to the cataclysmic teaching of the 18th century prophet monk, Nichiren. This doctrine states that an apocalyptic âfinal warâ (saishu sensoâ) is to be fought against the âChristian west and the Islamic world.â Also known as the â100 hundred year warâ it pre-dates WW11 and continues to be fought in the shadows, even as we speak.[ix]
ENTER THE RUSSIAN
By the early nineties,
Asahara and his fellow Aum leaders had made giant inroads into the former
Soviet Union. Operating at the
highest levels, agreements were reached for the Russians to provide advanced
weaponry to Aum. Unsurprisingly,
as soon as pen was put to paper - between the Russian government and official
representatives of the Japanese government - to ratify the agreements hammered
out by Aum - the leadership of Soka Gakkai again felt free to re-commence
hostilities against their rival.
This resulted, Amano says, in the now infamous Tokyo gas
attack. Vilified throughout
the world - for an act of sabotage they did not engineer - Aum
Shinrikyoâs growing reach and power was effectively crushed,
leaving Soka Gakkai in the driving seat once more.
The Nunn report makes clear that Aum sought to selectively recruit Russian scientists into its fold. They targeted, in particular, physicists, chemists, biologists and others engaged in advanced military weapons research. The Senate report also states that Aum were in the process of purchasing a gas laser for plasma-weapons research from their Russian contacts, one of who was Oleg Lobov, Premier Yeltsinâs close confidante. Lobov was paid a significant sum of money for his assistance. The figure may have been as much as US$900 million. It is also clear that Aum received significant assistance from various Russian intelligence services, according to âVitaly Savitsky, head of the Russian Dumaâs religious affairs committee.â[x] Aumâs intelligence connections also extended to Toshio Yamaguchi, head of Japanâs foreign intelligence service - and allegedly a Soka Gakkai devotee.
But the real question is do powerful Tesla-type earthquake weapons really exist? According to conventional scientific wisdom, the answer is a categorical no. Yet, there are many who harbour simmering doubts, and still others who maintain that âconventional wisdomâ inside the scientific community merely reflects a mind-set rusted closed by prolonged conservative values.

on Voice of Russia, 24 February 1997.
Belitsky in replying to a question on Russian military applications
of microwave generators, stated âthey can be used to fire

community. His classified research
papers, however, may well have been dusted down and quietly re-cycled?
A brief foray into the literature of Tesla reveal an ingenious inventor years ahead of his time. Born in Serbo-Croatia in the former Yugoslavia, Nikola Tesla settled in the USA where he received citizenship. Today, his work - at least that part which is not hidden under national security wraps - is undergoing a marked, although unofficial revival. He is belatedly credited with the discovery of alternating AC/DC currents, fluorescent lighting, free energy and remote-controlled robots. However, his inquiring mind carried him into far wider realms.
During the late 1890âs, Tesla built a âlightning bolt machineâ at Shoreham, Long Island, NY. Funding for the project, dubbed âWydenclyffeâ was provided by banker-entrepreneur, J. P. Morgan. The construction consisted of an enormous 187 foot high tower, capped by a 55 ton, 68 foot metal dome. Tesla was confident his machine would work as envisaged - following previous experiments in Colorado where he had accidentally destroyed the generating station at Colorado Springâs Electric Company.

Colonel and missile specialist, T. E. Bearden, credits Tesla with the invention

wire-lessly. Tesla himself argued
that this device could destroy entire armies and thousands of airplanes at
a distance of hundreds of
miles.[xv] It is this device, using Scalar waves,
that lays at the heart of discussions of an earthquake
Beardenâs work, however, is generally regarded as
being theoretical rather than practical.
Non-the-less, Tesla claimed his inventions were not only possible
but fairly straight-forward. The
fact that many of his more exotic weapons concepts arose at the turn of the
last century is, of course, remarkable.
Nor should we loose sight of the fact - which I have repeated because
of its significance - that his work papers remain veiled behind US national
If such weapons
do, indeed, exist, and covert testing is taking place - as cited by Archipelago
journalists and others tracking this story- then we would expect solid evidence
of unusual earthquakes and related events to

though interesting, must be viewed with
caution. Aum guru
Asaharaâs prediction could just as easily be predicated
on known geological forecasting.
This rationale, however, does not appear to fit the facts regarding
a large number of powerful quakes and other curious energy events that peppered
Western Australia over the last few years.
TESLA WEAPON TESTING
IN THE OUTBACK?
In 1995, British
born Geologist/Geophysicist, Harry Mason, stumbled across a strange,
unaccountable earthquake which rumbled across the vast open spaces of Western
Australia two years earlier. The
event took place at 11.03 p.m., on 28 May 1993 with an epi-centre close to
Banjawarn sheep station in the Leonora-Laverton area - North-west of
Perth. The event registered
3.7 on the Richter scale and was assumed to have been the first ever recorded
quake in that part of Australia.
Mason, who was very familiar with the region and itâs
geological composition, was intrigued.
Initially believing the tremor was the result of a meteorite impact,
he set about gathering detailed
sighting a fireball trailing across the sky just minutes before the subsequent
tremor. This was followed by
a bright blue flash and shortly afterwards, by an earth tremor measuring
3.7 on the Richter scale. Shortly
following this a âlarge hemisphere of orange light, lined
with a silverish glow, rose above the apparent blast
site.â[xvii] Extraordinarily, the dome of light
remained in place for two hours, and then rapidly vanished like
âsomeone turning off a
soon revealed to Mason, a number of major inconsistencies with his meteorite
theory. For one thing the object
was heard before it arrived overhead and clearly was moving at a sub-sonic
speed. Aware that meteorites
generally have entry speeds of around 25,000 mph, Mason was
bemused. In addition the object
gave of âno sparks or other drop off fragments, and appeared
to arc up over the observers before seeming to plunge down to the
North.â[xix] Moreover, the fireball emitted
âa fiery spherical white-blue-yellow
ââ¦flew at relatively low
altitude,â and âemitted a regular pulsed
swooshing roarâ similar to a Diesel freight train engine
roar[xx] Some witnesses told Mason they thought
they had observed a jumbo jet or plane
crash. Subsequent flights over
the estimated impact site revealed no crater or blast damage.
As his detailed investigation continued, Mason became increasingly convinced that the Banjawarn event was not a meteor.[xxi] In time, his thoughts increasingly turned towards the peculiar group that had purchased the Banjawarn sheep station in late April 1993. Representatives of Aum Shinrikyo had first arrived at the station in early April 1993 and commenced negotiations to buy the property five weeks before the powerful quake. By May 1993, four other Aum members, including a nuclear physicist arrived on site. By September 1993, Guru Shoko Asahara, arrived with his entourage and remained for a few weeks. Throughout, a series of unusual geological investigations by Aum scientists in, and around Banjawarn, were undertaken.
These involved the curious activities of Aumâs chief arms dealer, Kiyode Hayakawa. Visiting Banjawarn station, he set about conducting extensive electromagnetic tests with electronic probes. The data he accumulated was fed into a laptop computer. Hayakawa remains central to the story. He had extraordinarily good contacts in Russia, travelling there no less than 21 times and repeatedly meeting with the chief of Russiaâs Security Council. It was Hayakawa who decided to purchase the sheep station, just days prior to the energy event and subsequent ground tremor.
In researching part in the Aum story, journalist Jack Amano, is convinced that Hayakawaâs sojourns to Russia reaped rewards: âAumâs Russian scientists had provided detailed designs and the theoretical grounding to develop a technology more powerful even than the ultimate weapon predicted by Asahara.â[xxii] Not least in the Aum efforts, was the acquisition of related US weapons data obtained by hacking into âsensitive US databases.â[xxiii] This, with the aid of Japanese government funding, Russian technological know-how and advanced equipment provided by major Japanese transnational corporations, a terrifyingly powerful super-weapon was being constructed in secret.
Harry Mason, was gathering information that made him pause for
thought. Intriguingly, just
a few kilometres from Banjawarn, is a military facility located at
Laverton. Mason says that press
photoâs of this facility âare
to the Alaskan HAARP (High-frequency Active Aural Research Project)
programme. HAARP has received
intense media speculation in recent years, due to its Tesla-like research
programme. In an early, detailed
essay, Mason concludes âOne is certainly left with the
impression that someone has been utilising the Leonora-Laverton region as
their own private testing
ground.â[xxv] In a private telephone conversation
with the US Senate Investigations Chief Council, Dan Gerber, Mason was told
that Aum had âdevelopedâ nuclear bombs
and were thought to be conducting a
âcrashâ programme to build an
As he continued his research, Mason began to gather a significant amount of additional data relating to what he terms âbeam events.â These are bright beams of light that hang suspended from the sky, often for prolonged periods. He states that these include âorange beams, small bright white lights and vivid blue-white energy dischargesâ in the more uninhabited regions of Australia. These also include observations of âdiffuse orange energy âcylindersâ coming down and striking the ground, whilst clouds overhead light up with exotic colours.â These beams, some experts believe, are a clear âsignatureâ of Scalar wave weapons. In addition there have been other unexplained âfireballâ events - notably a 1st May 1995 explosion above Perth, estimated to have been in excess of 1 megaton of TNT energy equivalence.
US NAVY TO THE
investigation by Mason centred on the South East Great Sandy Desert of Western
Australia. An area unknown for
earthquake activity until 1970, an amazing 173 tremors measuring between
3-0 on the Richter scale occurred between 1970-3, with the majority between
March and early October 1970. The
epi-centres of these events are spaced exactly 10 kilometres apart, along
â8 lines each 50-70 km
long. Several similar events
have occurred subsequently. With
the present figure standing at 246 (through 1995), Mason concludes they are
âabnormally regular,â and believes Australia
is being surreptitiously used as a testing ground for advanced
âscalar E/M weapons
exercises. Originally, Mason
thought these tests may have been of Russian KGB - or more probably French
origin.â[xxvii] However, recent data points to Scalar
EM weapon tests conducted from the top secret US Navy Exmouth Peninsula Tx
facility.[xxviii] The US Navy connection is
It was the US Navy who were responsible for Project âPrime Argusâ - a precursor programme to HAARP. Argus was responsible for exploding three atomic bombs in the Van Allen belts and, thereafter monitoring the resultant effects. Researchers who have recently investigated the son of Argus, project HAARP, maintain this is an advanced weapon system capable of acting as an impenetrable planetary-wide missile shield.â[xxix] Behind the construction of HAARP lay the scientific patents of Bernard J. Eastlund. Previously classified as Secret, Eastlundâs patents are now partly available for inspection. They are revealing for the sheer scope of what the HAARP project may be capable of, including âweather modification.â Eastlund had in fact used much of Teslaâs work to arrive at his concepts, a fact he openly acknowledged. Moreover, the original Prime Argus project was also concerned with looking âat ways to cause earthquakes.â[xxx]
Whether Teslaâs earthquake inducing devices, and other terrifying weapons of mass destruction are being secretly tested by the major powers is, so far, unproved. But the fact remains that serious military research demonstrates these are within grasp. Who knows, they may even have been grasped - considering the 100 year lead-time of Teslaâs inventions?. Those of us closeted outside the secret world of weapons research are left to squint and speculate.
Weapons that can mimic cataclysmic natural disasters open a Pandoraâs box of deniability, and are, therefore, of great value in todayâs âI didnât do itâ doctrine of political survival. The fact that Aum did acquire significant advanced weapons from Russia, and that Japan is presently re-militarising itself as part of the âChina containmentâ strategy must be of concern - even disregarding the dark visions of the prophet Nichiren and his festering adherents inside Soka Gakkai and the Japanese military, industrial and intelligence complex.
cannot disregard the EM weapon advances of the US, nor forget the touted
joint US-Soviet-Japanese missile shield, which might easily switch from defensive
to offensive posture? If we
are on the brink of a new class of weapons so terrifying in their destructive
potential that they prompted Kruschev to sound his warning 36 years ago,
should not the public at least be permitted knowledge of what is being done
in their name and with their tax
not. As ever, Joe and Jane citizen
are to be left blinking in ignorance - a fact their masters regard as
âblissfulâ - as they are Goose-stepped
into a brave new world.
In one experiment in 1896, Tesla accidentally triggered an earthquake across a dozen New York city blocks. This, Tesla later said, was caused âby a little piece of apparatus you could slip in your pocket.â As local police stormed his lab, the wily inventor lifted a sledge-hammer and smashed the oscillator to pieces, bringing an end to the pandemonium.[xxxi]
That one simple
act of common-sense wouldnât go amiss today.
I am indebted to Yoichi Clark Shimatsu for patiently guiding me through the
subtleties of the Aum story.
Yoichi - the former general
editor of Japan Weekly Times - together with a small band of dedicated
journalists have investigated the Aum Shinrikyo story in great
detail. Those interested can

I have to say that the Archipelago team are virtually alone among
the Japanese media to courageously unravel the Aum
story. This has resulted in
the team members of Archipelago suffering genuine threats on their lives
and necessitated being kitted-out in body armour and assigned unofficial
police guards to protect them.
Such dedication is rare and itself should not go unreported.
