Khmers was published in 1957 several years after his mission in Cambodia during the Korean war. First you must know that historical ties linked France and Cambodia since Napoleon and that included french language. Raymond a French speaking Canadian originated from an emancipated French colony (Nouvelle-France). Our family ancestors date back to the mid seventeenth century in Quebec (lower Canada). Originally from Orléans (France) early seventeenth century. They have participated in the ranks of the French Army (as scouts) in one battle along the St-Lawrence river... When the French inflicted the only military defeat the United States has ever known during the Battle of the City of Quebec: against Admiral Phipps of Massachusetts (1690). Several other locations were involved in this war such as in LaPrairie on the south shore of Montreal.
Raymond was selected by the Canadian Government and the United Nations on the basis of his qualifications and credentials to fulfill the task of Chief Mission Technical Assistance. In Cambodia he soon developped a friendship with an American: Mr. Trepagnier (Smithsonian Institute) and several French Officers (General Jean de Latre de Tassigny) and Academicians. They had a joke between them: - If a Diplomat didn't go crazy after a month over there then he probably would make it... The cultural shock was immense even for the toughest...
I found out that cultural shock could even cross oceans one day in elementary school in Candiac (quebec). When I was lynched by bullies in the schoolyard... I was explaining to them that in Cambodia children went about naked in daily life... The next day I was expelled from school after a strap beating by the school principal... (wasn't my day) because I had brought the book with me and shown a photograph to all my schoolmates to prove my point. I've always been hard headed so the following week when I was allowed back to school... I also explained that my sister had a pet baby leopard and a brother had a pet baby asian elephant... Now that didn't go well either and I was accused of seeing this on TV in Jungle Jim... So they decided to destroy my brand new bicycle... Funny they never got kicked out of school... Unfortunatly all these photographs were lost to a basement flooding in one of my brothers house.
Raymond (wrote & typed) & Claire (typed, pianists are lightning fast) many confidential reports to the Canadian Government, French Government and the United Nations such as one listing the tributes (taxing) to China throughout history (Gold, Silver, Minerals, Goods) or another about the decyphering of several bas-reliefs concerning Siam and the Annamites that were ignored by the scientific community... Now again all lost (my copies) to the ravages of time...
You must know that in those years Cambodia was the Free World's only Ally in the region... because of the historic Protectorate Treaty signed with Napoleon !
The job isn't finished after the Field Work... Mom & Dad must still compile the data.
Note the montage:
On top is a typical Cambodian family dwelling... You won't find native Cambodians in cities since they don't control their economy nor their politics. Chinese mercantilists in fact control the economy everywhere. They are easily differenciated from native Cambodians by their lighter toned skin. And the so-called Buddhist monks who control spiritual life are all chinese... or from Thailand. The so-called Buddhist schools teach nothing besides the Art of Begging !
At bottom the olympic sized swimming pool in the back of the typical dictator/butcher dwelling... Palais Royal de Phnom Pehn that of Norodom Sihanouk: an uncurable narcissistic psycopath... Me Myself and I is only the beginning in describing his case... The bodyguard assigned by him to the family was an Islamist Indonesian Officer. In the back of his Jeep you would find an adult spotted panther who followed him everywhere. When my mother asked him why he was in Cambodia, his answer was to say the least perplexing: - We will only rest when the whole world is converted to Islam - . I wouldn't dare imagine what diet his pet was on.
Dad loved native cambodians and got tremendous satisfaction out of his field trips. Mom rarely stepped out the Palais Royal and had to take care of my sister and two brothers. Besides a woman couldn't have a life of her own.. why she wasn't even allowed to cook. The only time she tried: she was expelled from the Royal Kitchens manu-militari. So she survived several years on a diet of sweet condensed milk. She really was severely traumatised and the anecdote below will show why...
You all saw that 'Jones movie where the hero is seated at a royal table and served live monkey brain (through a hole in a tabletop)... I personally find this movie grotesque in it's depictions (it's a purely personal opinion). Anyway in reality at the Palais Royal in Phnom Pehn matters were slightly different... Mom or Dad never mentioned any eyeball soup. However Claire sometimes related these anecdotes with great sorrow and distress, all of them. Know that war is creeping within Cambodia through the Khmers Rouge and the chinese communists with all of it's horrors also. The monkeys are brought to the guests in a contraption, with their skulls already cut with a holed tabletop on their heads. I would have been traumatised too, had I been born then.
You have to know all about the - Oeufs de Cent Ans - / One Hundred Years Eggs... These eggs are wrapped in Betel leaves and buried in the ground for Three Months (not a hundred years).
Betel leaves are used for a more elegant cultural purpose by native cambodians (thank god)... It is chewed by everyone and when mixed with an alkaloid they not only provide effects similar to cocaine but dye the gums and teeth a vivid red. Cambodian woman without this characteristic are not considered attractive. Let's all step outside for a breath of fresh air shall we.
Back to the montage: The Medal to the left was pinned to my father by Raoul Follereau (a Swiss citizen). He was an exceptional human being giving without restraint for the benefit of mankind. In 1946 there were 46 million lepers in Africa and Raoul Follereau started his crusade to eradicate this evil from Planet Earth... And alleviate the suffering of those victims. So he wrote a Manifesto - Donnez-moi deux bombardiers - , - Give me two bombers - and inundated the political world with it. At the time there was no cure for it. Eventually Canada developped a treatment: SULFATES and Raoul Follereau was on his way to Africa. This is how Raymond and Raoul rubbed shoulders.
The ruffled Medal on top was given to Raymond by the Archbishop of the - Diocèse de Saint-Jean - (Gérard-Marie Coderre).
It is the Order of Charity. This one was issued for other reasons not relevant to our discussion.
There is a Medal missing from the montage (lost to time). The - Dragon Impérial d'Annam - ... the one with an enameled blue dragon spanning across it's top which rests on the - Flamboyant Star - .
It is a very rare honor and distinction issued by the French Government. Some Old french dictionaries with illustrated pages in color show it but without the Blue Dragon.
If you ever watch the movie Mozart (70's)... In a scene somewhere... There is a huge highly Stylized representation of the Flamboyant Star on a wall which is part of the free-mason's iconography. They surely were inspired by a design somewhere, somehow, sometime... Remember it is Flamboyant... (flamboyant stars always hold a cosmic significance).
The picture to the left was taken in Angkor by my father. However he never outlined the two - decorations - on the historical figure's chest. Because they just jump in your face. It so happens that the - École Française d'Extrême-Orient - was established a long time ago in Indochina and they are known for their ties to let's say secret societies... Dad couldn't stand European Freemasonry for very good reasons of his own that I won't digress into. But to be fair know this: Europeans do not practice the Rites of York.. It is only practiced in America. And I will provide a MEME I made myself to put you on track... - Saturn devouring one of his sons - (below). (remember: Cosmic not Litteral meaning ;)
To view the matter under another perspective (an excellent one by the way) perhaps you should consider what our friend Mr Cati has to say about it. Through his serious observations he has defined two Groups that are in opposition on this Planet. The Red (23) and Blue (24). His discussions are fascinating, no less ! Unfortunately both groups are present and active in North America generating tensions that have never been seen in history !
In the world of cheap entertainmant you will find that the media is flooded with Conspiracy Theory so-called documentaries... Documentaries that are nothing more than Clickbaite... and all those useless clips that are junk collages... Exceptionnally you will discover brilliant minds who contribute to a better form of communication. I call them Enigmatologists because, yes of course they provide quality entertainment.
Some go far beyond and realise true historical documents of value based on documented facts. We tip our hat to the following group of collaborators in the following presentation by Graham Hancock. They show us that Egyptologists are there to promote tourism and perpetuate ignorance... This is why at SBMarine we call egyptologists: PyramIdiots.
As far as CODE & Measurements are concerned we still prefer to go along with the pioneer in those fields. A document of great importance produced in 1994 by Carl Munck... at a time when a Commodore 64 with the GEOS program was considered the nec-plus-ultra... Munck never tried to build a Cult, a Church, a Belief, a Dogma... No he simply uses science as it is meant to be understood: a Tool to comprehension. Not once will Munck intertwine beliefs in his discussions. His methodology is inherently GOOD !
Of course there is no wisdom in Superstition such as that attributed to supposedly Lost Civilizations... Any mystic who has faith in God beholds it WITHIN him. The Duality of Good & Evil is what any good human being should be concerned with. As you may have observed in my excerpts: the Universal church (this is the true meaning of Catholic) asks any Catechumen to behold God within himself. This means one should not consider God to be above him (Zodiac) but within his soul... It is a personal choice, you either make it or not. It does not imply that you submit or obey... Every human being has the LIBERTY to decide what is good and what is evil. The Universal church is not a temple or a shrine or a cathedral or a pyramid... Wisdom cannot be chained, bought or destroyed for it is an integral part of one's soul and individuality. You must understand that seeing God as being above you is what the ancient MAGIS professed (science of the Spheres) out of ignorance and is what Saint-Augustine fought with all his heart. Saint-Augustine was well versed in ancient knowledge and it only becomes obvious after reading: Moïse Maïnomide's - Le Guide des égarés - and: Saint-Augustine's - Confessions.
What does this have to do with the Khmers Empire may you ask.... A lot since they were fighting Evil in their own time in their part of the world. Only that. In the same manner the far east dynasties Tang etc (what we today call china) were all at war with each other dating back as far as 3,000 B.C.. Except one they were all empires of extreme cruelty and enslavement (unimaginable). Any god that should ask to kill in his name or pull out the hearts of his ennemies alive or sacrifice virgins to appease his wrath should be considered EVIL. Furthermore substituting Science to God amounts to same. If there is ONE thing that science will never answer is quite obvious: What is Good and What is Evil... This is where the Big Lie resides.
A question remains out of focus but thanks to Carl Munck we can easily understand that at least the ancient builders had obviously a PURPOSE (not the tribes that occupied these territories subsequently.)
Everything starts in Pnom Pehn on the legendary hill where the Stupa stands (book cover) with the statue of king Sisowath.
Summary: No matter how poor a National Language may be it must figure predominantly in the elementary school system. Because younger children return to the rice paddies where french is not spoken. At the next level french becomes vital because those who pursue their studies will become the leaders of tomorrow dealing with the rest of the world.
Typical Native Cambodians
Since the 1970's the U.N. has inundated the media with it's financial assistance programs to restore and preserve Angkor... Claiming that it will benefit Cambodia and Cambodians... Many including myself question the validity of this propaganda... Nothing has changed at Angkor since the mid-fifties... The jungle is still creeping onto the site and as far as I'm concerned no reconstruction can be seen..
(photos below from: SBM archives - Confidential Sources)
Nothing has changed for the native Cambodian people since the mid-fifties... They still don't live in cities, don't control their economy or politics. You will find out later that a major evil event occured though...
(photos below from: SBM archives - Confidential Sources)
What happened? Where did all the money go? I guess it's a no-brainer... To those who control Cambodia's economy and politics... Angkor (believe it or not) has been transformed into a cheap mercantilist SAFARI-ZOO like tourist contraption complete with authentic so-called buddhist monks... native wild monkeys... Elephant rides... and no educational or historical material available... I'm sure some of you would realy like to know who owns and operates that pinky on site motel complete with AFRICAN Elephant statues...

What about the Royal Khmers dancers? What you see here is a parody... Note the women's hands they are normal... Oh yes true: four women were flanked left and right by two transvestites, the analogy stops here. The costumes are not even close to history. You see the female Royal Dancers were enslaved to the king's court at a very young age... Gradually all their knuckles were broken and braced until they became permanently bent upwards (no way you can grasp or hold anything with such a condition). The kings though thought this to be sublimely elegant for the performances... I won't get into the Royal Musicians and traditional instruments that were all richly decorated with Ivory Trimmings... Asian Elephants have no tusks !! Nowhere may it be in India or Cambodia can African Elephants be found !! So where did the Ivory come from ? Imagine centuries ago getting Ivory from Africa must have been very expensive... Poachers got that Ivory from slaughtered animals... And who controlled trade after the fifteenth century in Cambodia.... Yup you guessed it. To tell the truth: nothing has changed up until today... I ask you who are the folkloric dancers enslaved to nowadays ?
