A relative minority of “old souls” are fiercely battling for the fate of the world. An immensity of “young souls”, utterly dumbfounded, have turned to a golden calf – snopes – as their latest deity. Barack Obama used the “Red Phone” to serve warning on Russia on October 31st. Then, around December 19th, when “faithless electors” largely failed to materialize – Pow! – the Russian ambassador was assassinated in Turkey.
Thus reads the description for my latest video, “Battle of the Old Souls”, published to YouTube on December 21, 2016. The clip, which clocks in at 9 minutes and 33 seconds, can hopefully be viewed at the top of today’s blog entry.
Old King Cole was a merry old soul, and a merry old soul was he…
The old nursery rhyme twice mentions “old soul.” Some believe there are souls who have reincarnated more times than others. Such souls are the “old souls.”
There “are older and younger Egos,” wrote Charles W. Leadbeater. The “older are striving more earnestly than the younger to unfold their latent possibilities.” 
The “young souls… make mistakes because they know no better.” 
As the number of incarnations increases, the soul within gains experience. The ability to think improves.
But the immensity of souls at this time are the young souls. Hence, less able to think for themselves, they are more likely to herd and let some “expert” do their thinking for them.
One such golden calf worshiped by the young souls is Snopes.com. You may sometimes hear people say, “I didn’t know the answer, so I went to Snopes.”
Sed quis custodiet ipsos custodes? (But who will guard the guards?)  Snopes stands guard for the young souls. But who will guard that Snopes itself is omnicient?
With the immensity of young souls unable to think for themselves, the battle now is truly between those few who can: the old souls. These are divided because, long ago, some chose the path of darkness (the “left hand path”) while others chose the path of light.
It is the battle of the old souls, and a mere feather can tip the balance either way.
It is reported that, on October 31, 2016, President Barack Obama used the hot-line “red phone” that connects the White House to the Kremlin, to threaten retaliation in the event of any Russian hacking on Election Day. (The part about “Russian hacking” I don’t believe, but the part about using the “red phone” I do.) Obama reportedly made a direct warning to Vladimir Putin of “armed conflict.” 
“[T]he departing president, Barack Obama, is working hard at this point to dump a fait accompli – war with Russia – into the lap of Donald Trump by January 20, 2017,” I wrote in my Ersjdamoo’s Blog entry of December 17, 2016. 
Obama uses the “red phone” on October 31st, warning Russia about “armed conflict.” The true source of tension was not the “Russian hacking” conspiracy theory, but a battle for control of Turkey’s foreign policy. Recall that back in July 2016, an attempted coup d’état was mounted against the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. “Turks Can Agree on One Thing,” reported The New York Times on August 2nd, “U.S. Was Behind Failed Coup.”  Then, on December 19th, the Russian ambassador to Turkey, Andrei Karlov, was assassinated. Several “conspiracy theories” are flying around in Turkey following the assassination of the Russian ambassador, reports Britain’s Independent newspaper. The incident is widely seen as an attempt to sour relations between Russia and Turkey ahead of talks between Moscow, Ankara and Tehran on the future of the Syrian crisis.  But again the U.S. “intelligence” services have screwed up. Relations between Turkey and Russia have improved subsequent to the Karlov assassination because the Turks have easily seen behind the façade.
