It was the spring of 1989. I was planning to leave my parents’ home to live in a dormitory at the campus of the University of Twente in Enschede. Students on the campus lived in groups. Newcomers had to do an interview before being admitted. I had been turned down several times. I was at my seventh interview. A female student asked most of the questions. She seemed to be the boss. She attracted my attention. For instance, during the interview she said to me: “You were warned of me during a previous interview.” Then she mentioned the specifics of where it happened and the name of the student warning me. And indeed it had happened that way. Perhaps someone had informed her but still it was odd. I was admitted to the group. I moved there on 13 May 1989, a Saturday.
She often said peculiar things. For instance, she repeated the acronym HAFMO like a mantra. These letters were the initials of the first and middle names of Hans van Mierlo, the principal founder of the Dutch political party D66. In 1989 he was again the leader of D66 after being out for a while. He was good-looking and popular with the ladies. D66 was a pragmatic liberal party in favour of referendums. There were elections upcoming in September so I guessed she would vote for D66. But this may not have been the reason why she repeated the acronym so many times. D66 as well as Hans van Mierlo have been used in a scheme related to D-Day. And she currently lives in the municipality of Geldrop-Mierlo in the Eindhoven area. Indeed, this is strange. And strange was also a word she repeated endlessly.
She was intimidating. It was better that you didn’t stand in her way. She dominated the scene. Once she said that all the women in her vicinity adapted their cycles to hers. This remark may appear delusional but it didn’t feel that way. And she occupied herself with cryptograms. These are about the hidden meanings of words. She wanted the living room to be redecorated. And so it was done, like everything else she requested. During the redecoration she made a copy of a Mondriaan painting on the wall.
After some time she began to make hateful remarks towards me. She singled me out. It was as if she had moulded the group into her little version of Paradise and that I didn’t fit in. It didn’t take long before I was forced to leave. That was on 13 October 1989, a Friday. She reproached me for being rude and hurting the feelings of others. I was a hapless autist and did not fit in anyway so there wasn’t a good reason to suspect a hidden agenda. Yet, over the years a series of peculiar coincidences happened, suggesting that my business with her wasn’t finished yet. Some of these incidents were quite eerie and intimidating. For a long time I believed them to be just coincidences, that is until the autumn of 2008.
September was turning into October. The financial crisis was getting serious. Things were falling apart. I had anticipated such an event for a long time and believed that interest would the underlying cause of financial collapse. Over the years I had discussed interest-free money on message boards but it was hard to convince other people. Interest-free money seemed an impractical idea. Why would anyone accept interest-free money if you can receive interest elsewhere? There was no solution, at least so it seemed, and usury was about to bring down human civilisation. Already in the year 2000 I bought some gold to cope with such an event. I also stored canned foods in the basement. At the end of September I began to think again about interest-free money.
Then in early October I figured out a solution. If interest were to be banned, investors would seek alternatives like equity. Balance sheets would become less leveraged and financial crises would be a thing from the past. Now comes the stunning discovery… trumpets please… the economy could do better and investors could make better yields. If there is no interest, the money could increase in value. Hence, an interest rate of zero could be positive return that could better the yields on interest-bearing money. In this way interest-free money would be possible, or even inevitable as soon as the knowledge becomes public. When yields on interest-free money are better there will be a capital flight so that interest-bearing money would be finished. This was a shocking find. This would be the end of usury. I named the idea Natural Money. The basic idea is:
- There is no interest on money and debts. Business profits are allowed.
- There is a tax on money of 10% per year. This tax only applies on money and it doesn’t affect investments and money lent. So if you lend out your money you don’t have to pay the tax so it can be attractive to lend without interest.
The financial crisis could easily turn into a biblical end times event. And I found a fix, or at least I believed I did. To be sure I didn’t invent Natural Money. It has been around for a long time. I only discovered its potential. Soon peculiar coincidences began to pile up. For instance, I woke up at night again and again to see time prompts like 2:22, 3:33, 4:44 and 5:55 time after time. And there was more. Natural Money is named after the Natural Economic Order of Silvio Gesell in which the tax on money was first proposed. Natural Economic Order can be abbreviated to NEO. Neo is the main character in the film The Matrix. The Natural Economic Order was first published in German. The German title of the book is Natürliche Wirtschafts Ordnung and can be abbreviated to NWO. That gave me the uncanny feeling that the discovery could be part of a greater scheme. And so I began to suspect that she had something to do with it.
My suspicions were soon confirmed when I tilted into a psychosis. Lots of remarkable coincidences happened at the same time so it wasn’t a simple delusion. I have written a detailed account of these events. For now it suffices to say that the psychosis suggested that she is Eve and that I am Adam and that we were to restore the gardens of Paradise. I don’t have any memory of a previous life. The psychosis arrived after my wife Ingrid had added lots of curcumin to our foods. Curcumin allegedly improves memory and helps against Alzheimer disease. And suddenly I was ‘remembering’ being Adam, a remarkable coincidence.
It may have been possible to discard the suggestions if it wasn’t for the coincidences. I just mention a few of them. She now lives in a suburb of Eindhoven. Eindhoven can mean Final Gardens. We might be on a journey from the Garden Of Eden to the final gardens of Paradise. I live in a town named Sneek. The name of this town is pronounced like snake and there allegedly was a snake in Paradise. The capital of the Netherlands is Amsterdam, often abbreviated to A’dam. This is even more remarkable if you realise that these references were not intended. If some place is called Eden then the founders probably intended to make the reference. But no-one ever was thinking, “Let’s call this place Sneek so that it sounds like the English word snake,” or “Let’s call this Amsterdam so they can abbreviate it to Adam.”
Natural Money is a very old idea. Stored grain was money in ancient Egypt. A fee was charged on this money to pay for the storage cost similar to the holding tax of Natural Money. According to the Bible it was Joseph who introduced the grain storage. The Bible and the Quran condemn charging interest. Hence, Natural Money is a biblical financial system that might solve a biblical crisis. So could she be God? And does God want Natural Money to become the money of the future? These questions seemed legitimate to ask. In the meantime central banks saved human civilisation from a financial collapse caused by fraud and usury.
This didn’t solve the underlying problems and probably made them even worse but it bought some time. The burden of interest bearing debt continues to grow. Fraudulent bankers weren’t punished so that they don’t fear retribution. The next crisis may require a more definitive solution. The psychosis not only suggested that I was the reincarnation of Adam, but also of Adolf Hitler. This was intimidating as it seemed that she could turn me into anything she desired. The time prompt recurrence already showed that my mind was controlled. Adolf Hitler found interest-free money to be a sound idea despite it being seen as impractical. And that was exactly what I was thinking too. It would be pointless to bring up that she was rude and hurt my feelings by making the suggestion.
The psychosis receded and for six months I was figuring out what to do. It seemed better not to ignore what happened. The psychosis suggested that she had a romantic interest in me. I have a wife and a son and had no intention of leaving them. A few years later I have emailed her asking whether she had something to do with these events. She denied it and it appeared that she hadn’t any interest in me. That would be fine with me, but her name suggests that she was lying, which is one of those peculiar coincidences. I later found out that she has a husband and three children. So perhaps a wedding has never been the plan in the first place. There also hasn’t been a specific order telling me what to do, but it seemed unwise to obstruct any plan there might be.
And so I took the liberty to write The Plan For The Future. This was part of the act I was destined to perform. In the summer of 2009 I started to work on it. I never told my wife Ingrid what exactly happened. I didn’t want to disturb my private life. Ingrid didn’t want to know either. And I never told anyone else I knew. At first I hoped or expected to find out that it was a delusion. When that didn’t happen I decided to wait for more proof to emerge, for instance Natural Money becoming a success. That would be a better time to come clear. Many people experience a psychosis, see things other people don’t see or hear voices other people don’t hear, so I may just be one of them. It seems unlikely that people will believe this. But that is not my problem in the first place as there appears to be a script. I can only do my best. And so I continued to live a normal life while working on the research. Some information was on the Natural Money website but it wasn’t easy to find. Nearly a decade has passed since then.
The suggestions made it possible to construct a theory on the nature of our existence that is free of contradictions and alligns with scientific findings. God being a woman who can have avatars in this world can make sense of the Abrahamic religions. I don’t know whether or not she really is the current avatar of God. If this universe is a virtual reality then our creators can make it appear anyway they want. There may be a violent controversy if this project ever achieves success and I may not survive. And so I began kicking the can down the road. Doing the research was rewarding as it was venturing into uncharted territory. Nevertheless, the most important reason for me to work on it is that I think this job needs to be done. It is a crazy scheme so it might work.
