The Fifth Pachakuti and NatGold™: Gold’s Natural Metamorphosis

In the shadow of modern technological marvels and the burgeoning awareness of our environmental footprint, an ancient prophecy from the heart of the Incan civilization finds resonance. The Inca, a people renowned for their intricate society and profound connection to nature, foresaw a time of profound transformation—a Pachakuti. This concept, a cycle marking a span of 500 years, predicted the end of an era and the birth of another, one that would set the world right-side up, returning us to a golden age of balance, harmony, and sustainability.

As we navigate through the tumult of the 21st century, with its environmental crises and a global reawakening to the interconnectedness of all life, one can’t help but wonder: Are we living through the dawning of the fifth Pachakuti prophesied by the Inca?

The Prophecy of the Eagle and Condor: A Call for Unity and Higher Consciousness

The ancient prophecy of the Eagle and Condor is a narrative that has woven through the tapestry of time, beginning over two thousand years ago. It depicted two paths of human evolution: the path of the Eagle, representing the mind, science, and industrialization; and the path of the Condor, symbolizing the heart, intuition, and spiritual connection to nature. These paths were said to diverge, only to meet again in a time of potential unity and shared consciousness—the fifth Pachakuti.

History bore witness to the first part of this prophecy with the arrival of European conquistadors in the Americas, a time that marked the near extinction of the Condor peoples and their wisdom. Yet, the prophecy held a vision of hope: a future where the Eagle and Condor would fly together, birthing a new era of understanding and consciousness.

The Unfolding of the Fifth Pachakuti: An Era of Change

The dawn of the internet and the dissolution of communication borders have ushered in an unprecedented era of global consciousness. It’s an era where the ancient wisdom of interconnectedness finds a new voice in the digital age, promoting a shift towards environmental, social, and governance (ESG) consciousness. This rising tide of awareness is not merely a coincidence but perhaps the manifestation of the fifth Pachakuti, a period marked by love, healing, and a renewed commitment to the preservation of our planet.

From Conquest to Conservation: Reimagining Our Relationship with Gold

The irony of history echoes loudly as we contemplate our past actions and future possibilities. During the early days of the 4th Pachakuti, waves of conquistadors arrived in Latin America in search of gold to enrich their monarchs, a quest that led to the genocidal decimation of numerous indigenous tribes, including the Incas.

Today, centuries beyond the era of the conquistadors, the fervorous quest by corporations to extract this precious metal continues unabated, despite the environmental and societal devastation it causes, particularly in relation to illegal mining operations. This modern-day crusade to extract gold simply no longer makes sense when approximately 80% of all gold ever mined is merely buried away again in central banks and private vaults, serving as a store of wealth.

However, in alignment with the ethos of the fifth Pachakuti, a new vision for gold mining calls for a shift towards peaceful and sustainable methods. This vision is championed by the International NatGold Council, which promotes practices that are in harmony with nature and beneficial for the wellbeing of our planet.

NatGold Council: A Beacon of ESG-Conscious Change

The International NatGold Council embodies the essence of the fifth Pachakuti, championing an innovative approach to gold mining that honors the earth and its inhabitants. By promoting a digital, green alternative to traditional mining, the Council fosters a future where the pursuit of gold does not come at the expense of our environmental or social integrity.As we find ourselves at the cusp of the fifth Pachakuti, we are reminded that the path to a golden era is paved with the choices we make today. The prophecy of the Eagle and Condor encourages us to embrace both the rational and the intuitive, the scientific and the spiritual, in our journey towards a balanced and sustainable future. In this spirit, the International NatGold Council invites us to reimagine our legacy—one that is forged not from the conquests of the past but from the conscious decisions that honor our planet and all its inhabitants.

As we spearhead the revival of gold to reclaim its 6,000-year-old monetary significance, let us be guided by the ancient wisdom of the Inca. Our collective efforts toward ESG consciousness echo a prophecy centuries in the making—a call to return to our roots, to harmonize with nature, and to embrace a future where NatGold, embodying these principles, benefits all.

How is an ounce of NatGold different from a traditional ounce of gold?2024-05-03T15:18:34+00:00

An ounce of NatGold is not physically different from a traditional ounce of gold; both are essentially the same element, gold. The distinction lies in their extraction and storage methods. NatGold leverages a digital mining process that is ESG-friendly, allowing the gold to remain securely in the earth. This process unlocks the monetary value of gold without physical extraction, preserving the environmental, social, and economic landscape.

In contrast, a traditional ounce of gold is physically mined, requiring it to be dug out of the ground and brought to the surface. This conventional method captures the value of gold but often comes with significant environmental, social, and financial costs.

Why Must NatGold Legislation Ensure Perpetual-Like Protection for Titles?2024-04-20T23:28:00+00:00

Perpetual or perpetual-like title protection in NatGold legislation is vital to ensure that NatGold coins, which are backed by certified green gold resources, remain a reliable store of value. Traditional mining titles are generally issued by governments for fixed periods, such as 20 or 30 years, allowing companies to explore and exploit subsurface mineral rights. However, for a monetary asset like NatGold coins, the backing asset—certified gold resources—must not expire. Money, unlike perishable goods, should not have a shelf life.

Perpetual title protection ensures that the value represented by NatGold coins is enduring and stable, thereby upholding the monetary integrity of NatGold as a dependable and long-lasting store of value. This approach aligns with the foundational principles of sustainable and ethical finance, ensuring that NatGold remains a viable and attractive option for investors and stakeholders in the long term.

Why do U.S. Patented Land Claims align with NatGold legislative policy, enabling them to qualify for NatGold tokenization?2024-04-21T13:15:45+00:00

U.S. Patented Land Claims align well with NatGold legislative policy primarily because they provide comprehensive ownership rights that include both surface and subsurface mineral rights. This dual ownership structure allows holders to fully control their property without the complications of ongoing fees or royalties that are common with traditional mining titles. Moreover, the associated costs, primarily property taxes, can be significantly reduced or even eliminated by severing the subsurface rights from the surface rights, thereby assigning the tax liability solely to the surface rights holder.

Additionally, these claims are perpetual and fully transferable, which are crucial attributes for the NatGold industry. The perpetual nature of these claims ensures that there are no expiry dates on the rights to the resources, aligning with NatGold’s requirement for a stable and lasting resource base. The ability to freely transfer these claims supports the continuity and integrity of title transfers, a fundamental requirement for tokenizing these assets within the NatGold ecosystem. Together, these features provide a stable foundation for the NatGold industry, facilitating the seamless integration of real-world gold resources into the digital economy.

What is NatGold Legislation?2024-05-03T15:22:03+00:00

NatGold legislation, often referred to as natural gold or green gold legislation, is designed to amend and expand current mining laws to provide a sustainable alternative to the traditional, production-centric mining model. It enables entities within the conventional mining legal framework to convert their exploration or exploitation titles into NatGold titles. Once a title is transitioned into a NatGold mining title, it obtains a form of perpetual protection, making it exempt from production permits. Instead, these titles become eligible for tokenization, allowing them to be exchanged for NatGold coins. This innovative approach aims to preserve natural resources while still leveraging their economic value, aligning with modern environmental and sustainability goals.

What are U.S. Patented Land Claims?2024-04-21T13:06:18+00:00

U.S. Patented Land Claims are a unique type of property right established under the General Mining Act of 1872, designed to promote the exploration and extraction of mineral resources on public lands. These claims grant full ownership of both surface and subsurface rights to the claimant, allowing for comprehensive control over the mining and management of mineral resources. Originally issued by the General Land Office—now known as the Bureau of Land Management (BLM)—these claims provided a mechanism for individuals and companies to secure land for mining, playing a pivotal role in the development of the American West.

As privately held assets, U.S. Patented Land Claims include both the surface and subsurface mineral rights, distinguishing them from public lands where mining rights are typically leased or licensed. This ownership model facilitates complete autonomy in the exploration, development, and extraction processes, making these claims particularly valuable for the tokenization of physical gold resources into digital NatGold coins. Although the issuance of new mineral patents was significantly curtailed by a moratorium enacted in 1994, existing claims that met all the requirements before this enactment are still in effect, offering a vital pathway for the digital mining of gold through tokenization in the evolving landscape of the NatGold industry.
