TruthBurn Sign Up Again in Marin County.


The Truth Sign is up again after its debut at this year's Burning Man. It now lives on its temporary home on a ranch in Marin County California. We plan to do further experiments with cutting thick structural steel, including using an new thermate cutter charge to slice through a piece of 2" thick plate steel...similar in thickness to the structural steel used on World Trade buildings 1 & 2. We will keep you posted about this event. We are also working on our short TruthBurn video documentary about why the sign was built. Plans include contacting various outdoor galleries to host the sign. The video, once completed, will accompany the sign. Dr. Steven jones has been using burnt thermate samples from our Burning Man event to compare to WTC thermite residue. The similarities are astonishing.

Dr Steven Jones Lab Analysis of TruthBurn/WTC Thermite Residue

Just got this in from Dr. Jones.
Dr. Jones said he used these comparisons (images) in a recent lecture in Connecticut

Here's an interesting link about a defense contractor that makes linear charges for the military. Their other products are interesting to look at.

and this re: nano-explosives as applied to nano-composite exothermic reactions

Excerpt from link -

Scientists at Texas Tech University made a nanocomposite of
aluminum and iron oxide (Fe2O3) that reacts exothermically when
ignited. The material could have applications in explosives or
as an energy source in micro-electro-mechanical systems devices or
in space. The researchers made a honeycomb-like alumina template by
electrochemical anodization of an aluminum foil in an acid. They
were able to tailor the diameter of the template’s pores by
altering the voltage and the acid used, producing pores between
10 and 150 nanometers (nm). The team then electrodeposited iron

Latest on TruthBurn

Sept. 6, 2007 San Rafael- We’re back home exhausted and nearly unpacked. I’ve included some posts here that I was never able to send because of a tenuous internet connection at Black Rock, partly due I believe to the daily onslaught of dust storms interfering with satellite communications. As mentioned below, we made what I believe was a safe and smart decision not to place our thermite cutter charges on the sign itself, rather ignite them beneath the sign on a hunk of steel we obtained from another artist. We talked to many people about 911 Truth, the use of controlled demolition on the World Trade buildings and of course, thermite and what it does to steel. Richard Gage, on hand for the event, gave a stirring talk about the melting temperature of steel, the numerous fire fighter observations of molten metal in the basements of World Trades 1.2 and 7 and the use of controlled demolition techniques to bring the buildings down. We remotely ignited about 75 lbs of thermite for the event. A huge arc bright fireball resulted that was seen all over the desert. The slag samples that were produced by this reaction are saved and some will be shipped to Steven Jones for a comparative analysis with samples from the actual twin towers. Though this art event didn’t fit our original plan, we feel that it was a great success nonetheless. I contacted most of the major controlled demolition companies in the US and even one in Japan, to solicit bids for using thermite cutter charges to bring the sign down. I heard back from none of them. This left me, a novice in the field, to devise the devices myself. The federally licensed pyro crew at Burning Man congratulated me on the safety and success of this rather large thermite burn. Cost was a factor as well. I did get one bid from a shadowy tech person with ex-defense contacts in Virginia to build 2 sol-gel thermate cutter charges. The price was $10,000.00 per charge.

Placement for TruthBurn

TruthBurn has been placed at 7:30 (a street) and about 1500' feet from the Man. Thermite destruction is set to go off at 11pm on Friday, August 31, 2007. The piece is nearly complete and most effects have been tested successfully. If you plan on going to Burning Man please visit http://burningman.com Tickets are still available. This was a courageous move by Burning Man to host TruthBurn. 911 activist-architect Richard Gage, AIA , http://ae911truth.org will give a talk before the 11pm event. Yarrow Mahko of Guns & Butter will be DJ-ing and playing G&B MP3s.This year the theme is the Green Man. Judging by the other art installations, this promises to be a very spiritual-political Burning Man.

TruthBurn still needs your financial help. We need to raise about another $7000.00 just to meet costs. Please send your gift to info@brightpathvideo.com using your paypal account or for a tax deductible donation please send to:
Agape/Northern California 911 Truth Alliance

We are planning to make DVDs available of the event.

Visibility 9-11 Welcomes John Parulis, Creator of 9-11 TruthBurn


This week Visibility 9-11 welcomes 9-11 activist and artist John Parulis, creator of the 9-11 TruthBurn Project which will be part of the Burning Man Festival held in the Nevada desert August 27 - September 3, 2007.  In addition to his idea of bringing down a huge piece of steel art spelling out the word "TRUTH" with Thermite cutter charges, John is a video producer, skilled craftsman, and environmental activist.  His work has been featured on 60 Minutes, MTV, Network TV.

TruthBurn is dedicated to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 and those who have since, and continue to loose life because of the events of September 11.

TruthBurn Given Final Approval By Burning Man!

TruthBurn Given Final Approval For Burning Man 2007

TruthBurn is happening at Burning Man! DaveX, the head of fire safety passed the final plan for the art project. A North SF Bay metal fabricator will be constructing the piece that has been designed by John Parulis, rendered into prints by Scott Page and engineered by Charles Pegelow, all members of ae911truth.org. The sculpture will be destroyed by about 40 lbs of remotely ignited thermite towards the end of the festival. With help from Ken Jenkins, audio and video from the 911 truth movement will be shown in the evenings on a screen suspended from the sculpture.

Architect Richard Gage, AIA, is slated to give a talk during the demolition phase of this art project.

TruthBurn still needs your funding support. By reducing the original weight of the sculpture, we were able to save a considerable amount of money, but money is still needed to cover costs, approximately $7,000.. Please send your tax free donations to Northern California 911 Truth Alliance (in memo section of check write “TruthBurn”) P.O. Box 60511, Palo Alto, CA 94306
Thanks to Carol Brouillet for offering this service.

About 40,000 people attend Burning Man. A considerable number of national and international press attend as well. A video of the TruthBurn event will be made available after the festival.

The sculpture will be made available for demonstrations and exhibits. A big thank you to Burning Man for having the guts to go ahead with this project!

Dr. Steven Jones & Kevin Ryan Support TruthBurn!

Good News! Dr. Steven Jones & Kevin Ryan not only support TruthBurn, they are giving technical advice as well. Architects Richard Gage, Scott Page and engineer Charles Pegelow are also consulting.

WE STILL NEED FUNDS! This is vital to the success of this project. The project will garner significant attention to the valid claims of the 911 Truth Movement. If any of you have emails or addresses of important donors, stars, celebrities, please consider sharing that with us or alerting them to this worthy project. Any donations are greatly appreciated and they are tax deductible.

"The Play's The Thing..."

“… guilty creatures, sitting at a play,
Have by the very cunning of the scene
Been struck so to the soul that presently
They have proclaim'd their malefactions;
For murder, though it have no tongue, will speak
With most miraculous organ”

-Hamlet, Act2, Scene2

Our Burning Man Art Installation called “TruthBurn” is aimed at eliciting the same kind of response for truth that Shakespeare’s Hamlet sought.
Our plan is to raise the funds for and build this twenty foot tall 40 ton structural steel art piece with the 8 foot tall steel letters “Truth” engulfed in flames. Towards the close of the Burning Man Art festival, the piece will be brought down in spectacular fashion by two steel melting thermate cutter charges set midway on the two massive foot square steel support columns.

911 Truth Art Project at Burning Man 2007

This is the scope of my proposal for an art project at Burning Man 2007
I believe it will garner significant press attention and therefore benefit the 911 Truth Movement
I need to raise $60,000.00 to realize this project. I feel that that sum is small in relation to the press and publicity benefits that the art project will attract. Please visit my new "911TruthBurn" blog site for more details. I appreciate your interest.
