Testimonial from Mariama – Cassiopaean Forum Member

Hoge bomen vangen veel wind. Met je kop boven het maaiveld komen.

Dat zijn van die prachtige Nederlandse uitdrukkingen die precies omschrijven wat er telkens weer gebeurt met een dame als Laura Knight-Jadczyk en haar heer Ark.

Laura’s intelligentie lijkt namelijk grenzeloos. Eveneens haar kracht en haar moed. Ze heeft het vermogen om tegenslag na tegenslag op een waardige manier te doorstaan. Ik sta iedere keer weer versteld over de zaken die ze weet en de verbanden die ze legt. Zo is er nog veel meer, maar ik heb het nog niet in mij om dat op juiste waarde te schatten. Continue reading

Testimonial from Mocachapeau – Cassiopaean Forum Member

I first discovered Laura Knight-Jaczyk’s work in 2007.  I had spent over a year doing some truth seeking of my own and had become familiar with a number of topics she discusses in her books.  After reading her book High Strangeness I was very impressed with how meticulous she was in her research, and also with her insightful interpretations of the evidence she presented.  Never did she try to exclude evidence to try and fit an hypothesis, she would always try to come up with an hypothesis that would include all the evidence.  Furthermore, she never tried to claim anything as fact that could not be proven.  The honesty and objectivity inherent in her work was quite refreshing.  It was for these reasons that I decided to check out her websites, and eventually join the SOTT forum, in 2008.  I have been a member ever since.

To say that my time spent participating on the forum has helped me, would be a gross understatement.  I have been encouraged to read well-recognized books about psychology, history, health/diet and the esoteric, among other things, by many different authors.  All of the suggested reading has been chosen with the specific goal of helping people to better understand themselves, the people in their lives and the world we live in.

Testimonial of Nathan – Cassiopaean Forum Member

My name is Nathan and I’m a writer from Australia. In 2001, I came across the Cassiopaea website while in search of information on my father’s psychological condition; information that was noticeably sparse in Western psychiatry literature: psychopathy. At the time, Laura Knight-Jadczyk had experienced several close encounters with such dangerous individuals and had skillfully dug up and pieced together what little data existed of their condition.

For many years I looked on with interest at Laura’s impressive bibliography of work and not to mention the insightful articles on the Cassiopaea and Signs of the Times websites, but it wasn’t until later that I returned to the Wave and the Adventure series with renewed interest (they were and are still available for free). Like many others I soon became a daily reader of the Signs of the Times website (appropriately sub-titled “The world for people who think”) because I wanted to keep up with what was really taking place on this crazy planet of ours.

Témoignage de Vulcan59, membre du forum Cassiopaea

À propos des individus comme Vincent Bridges, Jay Weidner et autres diffamateurs de Laura et Ark : qu’est-ce que c’est que ces gens ? Ils viennent chez vous et commencent à faire des commentaires sur les meubles, les photos accrochées au mur, ce que vous mangez, vos enfants, etc. et quand vous leur demandez d’arrêter, ils se vexent ! Alors vous les jetez dehors et, ni une ni deux… vous voilà catalogués ! « Malades, raclures, tarés, secte »… C’est exactement ce qui est arrivé à Laura et Cassiopaea. Ces individus ne vous fichent jamais la paix.

Je suis pilote de ligne ; je forme aussi des pilotes pour une compagnie aérienne internationale. J’étais pilote militaire avant de passer aux vols commerciaux. Je suis dans l’aviation depuis bientôt 33 ans, depuis l’âge de 19 ans.

Pour commencer, je voudrais mentionner que je lis les sites Cassiopaea depuis environ 12 ans et que je n’ai jamais rencontré Laura ni sa famille. Je suis tombé sur les travaux de Laura en 1999, en faisant des recherches, et depuis, je suis ses travaux. J’ai vu évoluer ce projet. C’était d’abord l’initiative d’une seule personne qui collectait et publiait tous les articles, gratuitement devrais-je ajouter. Aujourd’hui, c’est devenu un groupe d’individus dévoués – qui inclue la famille proche de Laura – qui se consacrent à la collecte et à la publication d’articles qu’il serait bien difficile de trouver dans les médias officiels.

Testimonial of Palinurus, Cassiopaean Forum Member

Who wouldn’t gallop to the rescue of a Dame in distress??!

So when Laura asked for more testimonials to be placed on the countercult website, I mounted my hobbyhorse and started typing. Not being a Don Quickshot, it took me quite a while to complete this diatribe, but nevertheless I reached destination after painstaking detours and disappointing drafts. Continue reading

Testimonial of Neema, Cassiopaean Forum Member

I have been following Laura and Ark’s work since 2002. I have also met them personally. In all the time that I have followed their work they have always been sincere and honest. They have shown themselves to be dedicated researchers with the upmost compassion. In fact they and their humble extended family, are the type of individuals that bring out the best of everyone and everything around them.  In  all the years I have followed their work, despite confirmation after confirmation of their research, they have always constantly and viciously been under attacks. From these attacks the most ridiculous of them all is the accusation of them being a cult. I mean they are so far away from the idea of a cult that the notion of it is outright bizarre.

To me, three things are needed for the notion of a cult. Unquestioning loyalty and obedience (we tell you what to think), financial and labours commitment (we own you and your assets), and last but not least everyone is welcome and no one leaves (freed former cultists always describe prison like conditions).

Testimonial of Laurel, Cassiopaean Forum Member

History is replete with instances where those seeking to uncover the truth have been maligned, persecuted, and repeatedly disavowed to maintain the status quo. Take Galileo for example. In his book, Starry Messengers, he set the Church and present day rulers on their ear, so to speak, as they responded fiercely and quickly to bury any information that contradicted the status quo. In a letter to Kepler of August 1610, Galileo complained with  rather well known sarcasm that some of the philosophers who opposed his discoveries had refused even to look through a telescope:

My dear Kepler, I wish that we might laugh at the remarkable stupidity of the common herd. What do you have to say about the principal philosophers of this academy who are filled with the stubbornness of an asp and do not want to look at either the planets, the moon or the telescope, even though I have freely and deliberately offered them the opportunity a thousand times? Truly, just as the asp stops its ears, so do these philosophers shut their eyes to the light of truth.” Continue reading

Testimonial of Alan, Cassiopaean Forum Member

I was introduced to Laura’s work when my wife bought me a copy of the
“Secret History of the World” as a Christmas present. Shortly after reading that we ordered the Wave Series and we both read our way through all the books.

We then joined the Cass Forum, following an interest in Castaneda and Gurdjieff, wanting to learn more.  I had never seen a forum or an Internet group before and I was very suspicious of them, but I soon realised that Laura and the Mods hosted a very inclusive, non judgemental environment where one could learn and develop and feel safe doing so. As well as our original interest in the forum we found we were introduced to other interesting topics through books recommended by other forum members. Continue reading

Testimonial of E.V., Cass/SOTT Reader

Dear Laura,

I want to thank you deeply for your work. You have provided me with greatly needed knowledge and most importantly with the desire and ability to leap over established beliefs that weren’t serving me nor others. I have found your work last year, at a time most desperately needed. There are no words to describe how I feel about it looking back. I have to confess that your book Secret History of the World made me terribly angry at times and had a very strange effect on me. I followed your links and your thought trails and it was one of the most amazing journeys I took.

All the while, even at the times I was horribly depressed or angered by what I was reading, I couldn’t stay away from it for too long. Later, I found the Cassiopaea forum. I read all the advice given there and my view on supplements and diet changed drastically. I have nothing but good results to speak for it. Continue reading

Testimonial of Jonathan, Cassiopaean Forum Member

I encountered the work of Laura Knight-Jadczyk in 2007, through a couple people I met who had read her books and were actively discussing her material, as well as that of G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky, Boris Mouravieff and others.

At the time I was a recovering addict.  Though I was actively finishing University, pursuing professional work and personal development, I still had a LOT of problems with responsibility and right living. Continue reading
