] was run by Donald Herman of Germiston, South Africa from 2001-2008. The last version of the site from 2008 displays information described as "new" that is dated 2006.
Desteni appeared on the Internet in 2007 with the desteni-universe.co.za website -- [web.archive.org
]. At that time Bernard Poolman was behind the scenes. He was known as "Eagle", as per Acumen Sense's earlier post. Donald Herman got a message from his "spiritual guide" called "Grey Eagle": [web.archive.org
'"You must move towards an alternative ... it is your voyage this time ... your repetitive search. Do not focus anymore and further on the religion, but focus on an alternative."
Donald: Alternative! Again 'alternative'. Always alternative.
"Seek an alternative ... thé alternative ... something new. There must be aimed at a meaningful alternative; something as wide-ranging as the religion.
Do not try to replace religion with another religion. Do not try to attach a new piece of cloth to an old, rotten garment. Search for something totally new. Replacing. Meaningful.
Now, go and think it over."'
In 2007, the "interdimensional portal", Sunette Spies AKA at that time as "Winged", took on the job of representing Desteni on YouTube. Poolman and Spies were known as "Eagle" and "Winged", but Sunette was sometimes mistaken for "Jack". Although at that time many people also wrongly assumed Spies' name was "Desteni".
"Eagle" (Bernard Poolman) invented "Desteni", which could be said to be an alternative to a religion. There appears to be no record of Bernard Poolman on the internet until after 2007, and then always in relation to desteni-universe or desteni.co.za.
Information uncovered at this forum shows that Bernard George Leopold Poolman and Susara (Esteni?) Petronella de Wet went bankrupt in 2008. See: [forum.culteducation.com
Donald Herman's "God-Forum" was concerned with subjects such as "How the Annunaki enslaved human beings", Planet Nibiru, Atlantis, channeling Hitler and child abuse. All of which are favorites of Bernard Poolman's "Desteni".
There is a note at: [web.archive.org
] which reads:
"The dedeucements and views herein do not necessarily originate from Medium S, except when designated as such, nor does she of necessity nor by implication support same. Donald is the author and thinker and Medium Sue is the medium."
Which sounds like it could be referring to "interdimensional portal", Sunette Spies, whose activities in 2007 were still referred to as "channeling".
But Medium Sue is someone else, a Spiritualist medium. Her website is at [www.crossingover.co.za
