The golden rule is ... they who hold the gold make the rules.

Here's an interesting story. Prince Philip (97), the husband of Queen Elizabeth II pulled out of the Sandringham royal estate in Norfolk on Thursday, January 17th onto a public road in a Land Rover this week and promptly struck a motorist driving on a public highway resulting in his vehicle being involved in an auto accident and his vehicle flipping onto its side. One witness to this incident helped the driver of the Land Rover and it came as quite the shock to realize who was driving … and in the other vehicle, containing a twenty-eight year old woman (who was driving) and who experienced cuts to her knee, while the woman's nine-month-old baby remained uninjured. A passenger in the vehicle, Emma Fairweather (46) received a broken wrist … and what did the Royal household do? Nothing seemingly. The duke never bothered to contact any of them, nor did he offer an apology. And the following day, Friday, January 18th he was given an eye test and declared able to see and instantly was out on the road again in a replacement Land Rover and photographed NOT wearing a seatbelt, which under British Law carries a minimum penalty of a £100 fine. If the incident merits it being brought to court, the offender can expect a fine of £500 - and now the victims are asking why he was allowed back behind the wheel of another car and why he was not charged with driving without a seatbelt but that's nothing as under law motorists found guilty of careless driving can expect imprisonment but of course that won't even be considered in his case, despite the fact that he's broken the law. In the meantime, Ms. Fairweather who only recently began working as a social worker is now unable to do her job and all because she was injured in a road accident not of her friends making and now has to have her teenage son help her wash and dress. She said that while she was in hospital being X-Rayed, the duke came to visit but since she was not 'seriously' harmed he walked away as if her injury was relatively minor. As an aside and to show that the money holders also hold all the power, the road which the duke was on was instantly considered for the speed limit to be dropped following the crash from sixty miles per hour to fifty, not that fifty won't kill anyone who is hit by another car there again … curious really because in this country, trying to get the council to do anything like this often takes months and there is no end of bullshit and red tape involved. Oh, one last comment … seemingly the Queen was also seen at the wheel of a car in Sandringham on January 19th and NOT wearing a seatbelt too. What does that tell you? On January 21st it was suggested that Her Majesty had personally asked her most trusted confident to contact Ms. Fairweather and ask about her health. The duke has yet to make contact.
Mega-City One Justice Dept. Logo (Alt Universe)
It's often hinted at in the later Judge Dredd strips that the Mega-City One Justice Dept. has become a police state run by what amounts to fascist Judges - with the real question being, when did the Judges stop protecting the citizens and start treating them as little more than cattle. In many ways Mega-City One can be seen in much the same way that Germany under the Third Reich was run, albeit without the secret police (unless you count the Public Surveillance Unit (PSU)) and the Special Judicial Squad (SJS) with the citizens fearing the Judges rather than respecting them. With this in mind, the above piece of artwork was created, perhaps representing an alternative universe where this has come to pass.

Concept by Jonathan Bluestone. The artist who drew the original stylized eagle for the Nazi emblem remains unknown. Artwork Copyright Bluestone 2019.

Helopod (sketch 1986)
I came up with what now looks to be a pretty futuristic looking one-person vehicle in 1986. Naming it the Helopod, it was inspired by a wheel of cheese. Propulsion is provide by localized gravity stepping motor (which works by 'stepping' between gravitational 'ripples', a naturally created phenomenon common on all planetary bodies and is held above the ground by a focused anti-gravity suspension system. Transit between the interior and exterior is accomplished by opening either of the side-doors and stepping in or out. Controls are simple, the user merely has to turn the vehicle in the direction that they wish to travel and it complies, but the vehicle actually does some of the driving itself, using proximity and object identification (OI) sensors to determine the qualities of the landscape, objects in the landscape with special emphasis on any object that is emitting lifesigns higher than vegetation and trees. The vehicle can also be voice-programmed to travel between two or more points. Observation of the environment is provided by armored side and front panels. The back section of the Helopod contains a trunk for storage. The whole vehicle is powered by a small radio-active particle sealed inside a impact-resistant storage block.

I'm all for people believing what they want to believe but I often doubt their native intellect when they choose to believe in subjects that defy logic. That said, I'm a lifelong UFO believer (actually, I accept that such things are perceptually 'real' but don't feel the need to run the streets screaming about it like some people) and I honestly believe this planet is being visited by technologies and entities that have originated from places other than here and that is because at least with the UFO the sheer weight of reports over thousands of years, and in the so-called 'present era' an extended period of more than two centuries with random persons reporting sighting unusual phenomenon in the sky, close to the ground and even on the ground itself which are anything other than recognized meteorological phenomena - especially when said objects interact with the environment and observers. UFOs actually leave physical traces such as landing marks, burnt vegetation and trees, and can sometimes be photographed and leave radiation traces, as well as being observed and tracked on radar and thermal imaging; but that pales into the instances in which witnesses (often very reluctant) discuss being chased down highways, pursued closely in aircraft and even see landed craft complete with humanoid entities.

Frankly I'm more likely to believe in the UFO than I am with any form of religion but sadly there are a percentage of persons who are interested in the UFO phenomena who have in fact turned it into a religion
, can you believe that? In 1955 a British taxi driver named George King (1919-1997) claimed contact with what he termed 'extra-terrestrial intelligences' (apparently one wasn't good enough for him, so several were involved) and of all of the brilliant minds in Britain, the scientists, the theosophers, the real thinkers in society he alone was chosen to be the voice of what came to be the organization known as a Aetherius Society with King as the head of the Earth ''Interplanetary Parliament''
. You can read up on them if you wish but essentially they hold what amounts to religious meetings and 'charge' prayer batteries which they allege they use to aim energies at various places on the Earth's surface in order to heal warzones and such … given the state of the world, frankly I think they're failing. But I draw a line when it comes to the freak beliefs such as the flat earth theory. These are people who for some illogical reason actually believe the planet Earth isn't a slightly-stretched sphere but is in fact flat and that the whole universe is also flat … and how do these individuals explain something like a solar eclipse? Apparently the Sun and Moon are holograms and that they don't really orbit at all and that all of this is really a big international governmental cover up (we are talking about the same 'government' who cannot keep anything secret and whose members are essentially a very bad joke).

But coming back to the solar eclipse, when that happens the flat earthers believe that the holograms are switched off because they need 'updating' - please. But then, what do you expect of a group of people who refer to everyone else as ''roundies''?

Compared to the flat earth believers, the UFO is a dead certainty.

THAT'S RIGHT - I DO NOT POSSESS A NECK. Therefore I'm immune to vampyres.

"If my universe had a theme tune which defined it, its danger, the sheer hostility of it all, it would be the music The Fall from the album 'Total Recall' (2012) as it portrays the urgency and energy of things and the sheer ruthlessness of this dark universe. Make no mistake, Fallen Worlds isn't Star Wars or Star Trek, its dark, its violent and I create vessels and hardware to reflect that fact as best as I can.'' ~ Jonathan Bluestone, February 2018

Thank you for replying. I spent the better part of two decades on 'my' universe getting the feel of things, developing the technologies. Nice to see it appreciated - but sad that it was never a commercial success back in 1983-84 when I released my first book of illustrations.
