On my current trip to Italy, Germany and then perhaps some other countries, I am learning a lot about family and love. It appears to me that I am part of more families than you can shake a stick at. All of them are worth my love. So if you feel you’re connected to me in a tribe or family know that I love you, no matter what the world may look like at this moment.
Oh yes, Love. It is what’s required in these times to overcome or perhaps sidestep the various disasters and catastrophes that have been “predicted” or should I say scripted, for us. Love unconditionally, and do not give an exclusive of your love to ANYone, no matter who they might be.
Retribution and “Justice” … blast them. We do not need to judge anyone or take vengeance on them for anything they have done. Just holding a mirror up to them will make them realize the error of their ways. They’ll either change their tune or fall by the wayside, leaving space for new things to emerge, new ways to be explored, new lands to be traveled.
Cradle of humanity
Mother Earth or Gaia Sophia as she’s also called, is a real person. The earth is her body and has real physical existence. As Gaia, she also has spiritual capabilities. The planet has been and is being badly abused. Gaia may perhaps have been asleep for a while, but she is waking. Her body is the cradle of humankind. Earth has been home to a number of civilizations. No, they haven’t all made it into our history books yet. Those civilizations evolved on her surface and in her bowels. Some went on to seek a home and make history elsewhere in Space. Others apparently remained here, under ground so to speak.
Gaia is also the cradle of this current humanity. It is we, the thinking, feeling bipeds that are living on her surface. Without her however and the myriad of other species sharing our biosphere, we simply would not exist. Lacking a home, we’d be hard pressed to call ourselves humanity. So honor her and protect both her physical integrity as well as her community of living species. After all, this is our home, if not to say our “family”… #RandomInspirations
When taxes are too high, people go hungry. When the government is too intrusive, people lose their spirit. Act for the people’s benefit. Trust them; leave them alone. The Tao Te Ching – Ch. 75
It would be wonderful if governments could follow that advice and let us get on with our lives, but recent events have shown that instead most of our governments seem dead set to accommodate corporate and elite agendas, trampling people’s rights and freedoms in the process.
The pandemic was mooted (war gamed) in a meeting of government and elite players a year before it actually happened. Heavy emphasis was placed on how to get the media on board and suppress any contrary voices. As it turned out, covid was not the deadly menace it was said to be, yet it was declared a “pandemic” in a hurry by the World Health Organization, which a few years before had amended the definition of a pandemic to remove the requirement of widespread death.
We saw widespread suppression of prevention and early treatment of Covid, with doctors who spoke out in favor of treatment losing their jobs and being attacked in the media. Instead, governments forced development of vaccines, granted emergency approval without proper trials, and widely imposed the experimental shots. Meanwhile, we saw outright murder of older people with unworkable or no treatments. Many of the elderly died in homes without being shown mercy or receiving proper care.
The pandemic is a perfect excuse to roll out controls over people’s lives, travel, association and freedoms. Selective business closures are bankrupting small and medium enterprises, while the well-placed multinationals are raking in record profits.
Elections appear rigged, not only in the USA but also in other countries, using hackable electronic voting machines and other shenanigans. In the US, Donald Trump’s re-election was foiled in this way, and there are indications that the recent French elections were tampered with in a similar way, but who knows how widespread this practice has become. Klaus Schwab, who boasts to have infiltrated governments, recently said “my people don’t lose elections”, making it seem that the meddling is generalised and comes from the highest levels.
Meanwhile, censorship has become a real thing. Governments and parliamentary figures insist on Big Tech’s duty to suppress “misinformation”. Big Tech has also been accused of censoring certain politicians and political trends, and has apparently been successful in that endeavour. We are even now criminalising words in the name of “social justice”, sexual pronouns have become a matter of contention. Antifa and BLM supporters caused mayhem in American cities.
Recently, mass shootings in the USA have re-started with a vengeance, after two years of pretty much complete absence. Intel agencies have been accused of grooming the shooters who often are also on psychiatric drugs. The events provide justification for calls to control gun ownership, or disarm the population as someone recently put it.
We are sending armaments to the Ukraine to “arm the population” in an attempt to involve Russia in a long drawn out and expensive proxy war there. Economic sanctions imposed on Russia say that the target of the West (USA and Nato allies) is regime change in Russia, something that has been a standard goal of US interventions abroad for decades.
War in Ukraine and a threat of war in Taiwan are used to increase the public fear factor. The war mongering forces are fully at work, yet always accusing the other side. Nato, far from being a defensive alliance, is on a suicide mission, supplying weapons to Ukraine’s nazi battalions. The last vestiges of neutrality remaining after World War II are being dismantled with Sweden and Finland being offered preferential access to Nato membership, completing the encirclement of Russia and hardening lines of enmity.
The World Health Organization is pushing for more decision power through a “pandemic treaty” that would give them dictatorial powers in the event of another pandemic. “Monkey Pox” appeared just in time to try and help this along. Meanwhile, various countries work to implement digital IDs, justified by the need to control people’s movements in case of another pandemic.
Global warming is the constant (and always the next and coming up) emergency that justifies increasing controls over people’s lives. The extreme weather events that are the consequence of weather modification and geo-engineering are being blamed on “global warming” now named climate change. Scary stories of sea levels rising to swallow coastal cities in a few decades are used to stoke up fear levels, while the world’s rich enjoy their sea front properties.
The Catholic Church has fallen in line with both the push for vaccines and the global warming agenda. They are forwarding the trend towards more and more controls and surveillance. Elites and politicians as well as much of the Catholic hierarchy are into satanic rituals, torture and sacrifice of innocent children. No moral moderation to be expected from those quarters.
Bill Gates has openly advocated a “culling of the herd” policy of vaccination and indeed it seems that one of the delayed “side effects” of the vaccines he has promoted so heavily is a diminished number of live births in several of the most highly vaccinated countries.
Excessive violence by police against demonstrators in Germany, the Netherlands, Australia and Canada signals that governments have lost sight of their primary function and are following an agenda that excludes protecting their own citizens.
Artificial Intelligence and trans-humanism
Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla automobiles, says AI is dangerous but he pursues a strategy to link people’s brains to AI through an implanted chip apparently in an attempt to influence AI to “be good”. If you can’t beat them, join them, seems to be the idea here. It is doubtful such a strategy would work.
Human presence in Space is a well kept secret from earth humans, although what happens out there deeply affects us all. In the end, we are the ones to foot the bill, supplying both manpower and technological construction capability to those covert space endeavours.
Manpower for covert space operations has for decades been obtained by kidnapping and torturing (mind fracturing) children who are used as soldiers and then sent back as mind-wiped veterans of space.
Meanwhile a planet-wide electronic control grid, also called the internet of things, is being rolled out using 5G mobile phone technology. Everything is to be connected with sensors, surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology, to achieve pretty much total control of all humans operating in the space of today’s cities and technological infrastructure. Control over humans is projected to be pretty much complete once all those sensors have been linked up to a central AI computer network.
“The great cull”
What we are witnessing is the intentional culling of potentially a large part of the human population, on the surface justified by what seem to be ecological concerns. The immediate target is the transformation of humanity into a tightly controlled technocratic slave society, where the individual counts for nothing and is sacrificed to the greater good. This is made possible by an absolute moral degradation of the “elite” strata of society.
Currently, the great cull is in full swing. It has too much momentum to be stopped by any one of us, yet there is a good part of humanity that has not fallen for the two great emergencies, the virus and the environmental agenda. It is those resistors who stand a good chance of preventing the implementation of that technocratic dystopia. Humans will not be staying in the water getting hotter and hotter, like a couple of slowly boiling frogs. There will be resistance, and the control technology will be vulnerable to such resistance.
Still, what is planned for us is hunger and widespread disruption of society, all part of the operation to force people into that technologically controlled environment. At the same time there will be a component of humanity that swings around into a “back to nature” type renaissance. Those people will refuse to be slaves of technology, instead finding joy and spiritual powers in niches that can’t be reached by the technocrats.
People will construct their own society, one that rejects trans-humanism and the techno-dystopia that comes with it.
The great resist and the HUMAN re-set
The more pressure there is for a technocratic “great re-set”, the more there will be resistance. But resistance is really just a perpetuation of the problem. It won’t resolve the situation. Not that resistance isn’t important, it just does not offer a way out of our current dilemma.
Where are we going to go? is the question. So what needs to be done in parallel with resistance, is to create and construct that new society, the human-directed re-set of our way of life. Let us not underestimate the difficulty of doing this, but by all means let’s at least take a peek at what we will need to consider. I am not saying that any of this is valid, You are as qualified as I am to imagine the future. Anyway, here’s what my personal crystal ball shows me …
Self-government – our political systems are irredeemably corrupt so we will have to find a way to replace politics with proper administration. The knowledge of administering a society exists, we have resources. All we need is to make sure that administrators work for the well-being of the populace, getting out of the way as much as possible when intervention is not needed.
Monetary system – money has been hijacked by the banking system as a control technology and as a tool to rob us. It is projected to get much worse with digital money issued by central banks and controlled at the push of a button. Blockchain technology, far from freeing us from the control of bankers, has provided the tool for even tighter control. If we are to have money in the future, it should be simple. Money should be a mere recording device of transactions, not something to control whether we are allowed to transact or not.
Education – schools have been used to grow crops of obedient citizens, people who will accept a 5-9 job or worse, a series of gigs without any economic safety. Some parents have started to home-school their children, a step in the right direction. Going one step further though, we arrive at “unschooling”. This means a system of education where not everything is pre-determined. In unschooling, children have a say in what they are going to study. Yes, that will bring unknowns, but it will also allow genius to flourish where today it can’t.
Communications – the internet has opened our lines of communication in an unprecedented way. Information is at our fingertips and we can reach people across the globe with ease. However this was immediately hijacked by the giant electronic operators and instead of free communication we now have censorship of both the information that is available to us as well as the reach of other humans through electronic communication. What we need is a non-censorable, distributed communications infrastructure that does not depend on Big Tech’s server farms and the controls associated with walled-garden social networks. Let’s have real privacy and real free flow of information.
Energy security – hydrocarbon fuels have allowed us to develop an industrial society. Environmental considerations push us to limit their use, but the alternatives, solar and wind, developed and run by the same energy cartels, are technologically inefficient and not capable of guaranteeing our energy security. Real alternatives exist but have been suppressed by vested interests. Hydrogen as a source, not only a carrier of energy, is one of those. Magnetics as a source of energy is being ridiculed but has potential, and so do a number of other technological advances that need to be liberated.
Transport infrastructure – we have heavy transport for just taking a few people from one place to another. Trains, airplanes, cars are all heavy both in material use and in technological complication. Cars should have been in the air for decades, but they can’t because we become “too difficult to control”. Long distance transport should work by teleportation, a technology that has been available to the covert intel and space programs for decades. Trains could run in tubes and be as fast as airplanes, while airplanes could and should be orbit-capable. All of the technology is available, it needs to be unlocked for us earth humans. Oh – and not to forget bicycle lanes for getting back and forth locally.
Food security and nutrition – profits dictate that food should circle the globe before we eat it. Fresh, locally grown produce could be available everywhere, if profit wasn’t the overriding motive. There is a potential source of nutritious food and no, it isn’t bugs. Neither is it lab-grown meat. Plankton grows in sea water with the help of sunlight, and is a super nutritious paste. It is the food of the whales. We all know they are well nourished. Agriculture needs to not only grow nutritious food but to enrich the soil in the process. Plenty to do there. Eliminate the poisons, gradually supplant chemical fertilisers with natural ones. Start cultivating food in harmony with nature…
Medicine and real healing – we have witnessed the disastrous failure of Pharma-based medicine in the response (and often the lack of it) to the current “pandemic”. Either none of the medical experts know what they are talking about, or they know very well and their goals are not aligned with ours. I see de-population in full swing, and medicine is being used to achieve it. We need real medicine finding and handling the real problems with our health. That starts with proper nutrition and other prevention strategies, and it goes on to workable medicines. Pharma profits are NOT a sign of successful medicine. Not every illness is caused by some bug that needs to be destroyed. We have all kinds of workable non-pharma-based medicine to rehabilitate and reactivate. We need to dismantle the industry-of-death that medicine has become and replace it with something workable.
Electromagnetic pollution – we are microwaving the planet to death. Microwaves heat anything that contains water, and they are influencing plants, insects and animal/human organisms directly, even if no heat is involved. Birds falling out of the sky, bees dying off, insects vanishing, as well as humans getting sick are all time coincident and spatially connected with the use of microwave technologies. Satellites use microwaves as does radar and the phone and entertainment infrastructure on earth. This is damaging technology that should be replaced as soon as possible.
Atmospheric pollution – We are chemically poisoning the environment in which we live. This includes the air, the water and the ground. There is nothing wrong with technology per se, and there are ways to make our technologies clean, non-polluting. Agriculture, transport, energy production and transmission need deep revision with a view to cleaning up the way we do things. Electric cars may be all the rage but as long as we have no clean battery technology and as long as much of our energy is produced by burning fuels, it is a mere fig leaf, not real technological progress. “Green” is not necessarily clean. We have to think those things out properly.
Climate action – I may have to disappoint you here, but real climate action starts with open scientific discussion of the causes and the real trends in climate. The well has been poisoned by emotional appeals and accusations of “denial” when in reality the problem never was open to discussion. Is human CO2 emission to blame for a warming trend? Is that warming trend real? If it is real, what are the possible consequences? None of those questions have been answered honestly, after open scientific debate and discussion. So let’s go back to basics on this one and open the discussion to ALL the experts, not just the ones we emotionally agree with.
Fiercely independent humans – it would seem that as humans we must develop our own ideas and convictions, independent of the trends we are given by press and other media. Perhaps that should be part the first point above, the one about self-government. As a matter of fact, we cannot hope to self-govern if we do not have our independent opinions and convictions. Always open to new data, never closed, but still not wishy-washy either. Do our own research, avoid responding to emotional appeals of the media, and become self-determined humans.
You may disagree with me on some of those points and that is quite ok. No one can know it all. My purpose here is to outline what I think would be a way forward. But if you have other ideas, other priorities, by all means go with them.
Here I am taking a look at the current situation in the Ukraine from a different perspective.
With open censorship on both sides of the conflict, we hardly have a chance to put together a complete and undistorted picture of what exactly is unfolding, yet it can be done. I believe that things can only make sense if we see the recent and current events there from a geopolitical perspective, zooming out to get a wider view. The Ukraine in that sense is merely incidental, it is not the objective of the current struggle as much as that might appear so.
According to Alexander Dugin, the foremost Russian expert on geopolitics, we have two powers at work here. One of them is the Sea Power, technologically oriented, poised to ever expand its sphere of influence. It is exemplified by the US/UK/Nato coalition. What traditionally started out as a Sea Power (think British Navy), then took to the Air (think US Air Force) to continue its politics of expansion. It is now in progress of taking to Space, witness the recently constituted ‘Space Force’ which is but a continuation of existing, but secret, high tech covert Space Programs that are in full swing already.
On the other hand we have the Land Power, based on tradition, and on the occupation and use of the land. Land Power is not bent on expansion. It is more conservative and it does not have designs to be a monolith. It envisions a multipolar world. The Land Power is exemplified by Russia, spanning the huge Eurasian land mass, but also China and India come into this, and perhaps a few other players.
Sea Power is doing everything it can to expand its sphere of influence. We remember a whole string, decades of US-initiated “regime change” operations where several countries’ leaders were toppled to be replaced by Sea Power friendly puppets. There have been a series of bloody wars that destroyed functioning countries and their governments, merely because they resisted the dictates of Sea Power. Irak and Libya as well as Syria are just a few of the more prominent recent examples of such intervention. This may be the first time in recent history that a candidate for regime change can put their foot down and have the firepower to back up that decision …
Coming back to the Ukraine, it appears that the country has been prepared to become a powder keg for initiating “regime change” in the Land Power, mother Russia. After a Soros sponsored color revolution in the early part of the century, a Russia-friendly president came to power, only to be then overthrown in the violent and also Western-sponsored Maidan events of 2014. A Western friendly president was then installed but with him came a coterie of hard core Nazis. They took to the streets and made no bones of their intention of “cleansing” the country of all those minorities that did not come up to their nationalist standards.
First and foremost among those minorities to be exterminated were the ethnic Russians – several millions of them – living in the south and in the east of the Ukraine. The campaign to exterminate the Russian minority started in earnest in 2014, when nationalist, right-wing Nazi factions had gained a foothold in government and in the military. Civilian victims of that ethnic cleansing campaign already number more than fourteen thousand, but the West turned a blind eye.
Even when Russia said hey, our people are being massacred here by Ukrainian Nazi battalions, not one of the Western powers was listening. So eventually we had a casus belli, a spark to set off the powder keg the Ukraine had become. When earlier this year a huge Ukrainian clean-up operation of the resistance in the eastern provinces was planned and the troops amassed to do the deed, the Russians intervened preventively to save their compatriots in those eastern provinces and to break the back of the Ukrainian extermination battalions.
The USA and Nato allies, having pushed for such a conflict to break out were somewhat taken by surprise, but they had a planned response which immediately swung into action. Propaganda about the Russian cleanup campaign and economic sanctions against “the aggressor”. The intention was, from the very beginning, to mire Russia in a drawn-out bloody war, to bleed the country until “regime change” would become inevitable. As it looks now, the trade sanctions are causing rising food and energy prices in the West, backfiring on the countries imposing them, as well as touching a large section of the less developed countries, mainly in Africa, that depend on the no longer available agricultural products out of both Ukraine and Russia.
The financial sanctions, among others the exclusion of Russia from the SWIFT international payments system and the freezing of Russia’s sovereign funds in Western controlled banks, have had even more pronounced unintended effects. Not only have Russia, India and China implemented their own international payment exchange, they also have gradually said good-bye to the US dollar as a trusted reserve or commercial exchange currency. So in some way, the Land Power was forced to build up its own financial network, independent from the West. It should be noted that the US dollar’s status as a de-facto world reserve currency has permitted the US to do heavy spending on armaments and warfare, with other countries basically footing the bill. This may definitely be coming to an end now.
In this war situation – let’s remember that the Ukraine are a mere puppet they’d gladly sacrifice – the Sea Power has a definite advantage on the propaganda side, since it controls practically all Western public media. Meanwhile, the Land Power is calmly proceeding its special operation of clean-up and protection. Russian forces go out of their way to avoid civilian casualties, something you would never know reading only the Western press. The Ukrainian population to a large degree welcomes the arrival of Russian forces and the step by step defeat of the Nazi forces, yet the court of public opinion is in favour of the “defenders”, including their Nazi-tainted military.
A meeting of the UN Security Council held on 5 April 2022 shows almost unanimous condemnation of the Russian intervention, but there is also, I sense, some uneasiness as to the narrative of brutal Russian troops indiscriminately killing Ukrainian civilians. There are too many inconsistencies in this narrative that has been imposed by force of sheer propaganda. So now it seems that calls for independent investigation and fact-finding missions are getting louder.
It would appear that the combined Ukraine/Western media propaganda machine will eventually out itself for what it is: unreliable when it comes to real facts. On the other hand, the Russian side is quietly documenting what is being found: deadly germs in various US-supported bio-laboratories, efforts to develop nuclear weapons and other things which we can hardly imagine at this time. We will need some patience to let those documents accumulate and mature, and for a good opportunity to appear to cross the wall of censorship for Land Power to bring those informations to the attention of a wider audience.
At one point we may see a grand reckoning between the two sides, the Sea Power and the Land Power. The final outcome is by no means certain. The Sea Power seeks to be a monolith, the only and central place of decision making in the world. The Land Power seeks to preserve its independent existence and to build a world where decisions are made in co-operative manner by a number of power centers. So the question becomes, will the Sea Power find it in itself to graciously concede space to Land Power, to a multipolar reality, or will they try to “take it all” and thereby commit suicide, taking much of the Western World down with it.
If we go back to Zbigniew Brzezinski’s work “The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and Its Geostrategic Imperatives” there is little hope for such a conciliatory step by Sea Power. But miracles have happened in the past and might happen again. Who knows, some strategists might think it worth to avoid all-out war, which would certainly be devastating for both sides.
I could imagine that Sea Power, in its natural evolution towards Air and now Space, might appreciate to have a home base on this planet that need not be subjugated and constantly patrolled. On the other hand, Land Power could take on the important task of stewarding the earth and our natural environment, protect all of the species present with us on this wonderful planet, as well as provide a place to grow and develop to those humans who do not aspire to a life in Space.
In this way, humanity could finally put its long history of continuous war and conflict behind itself and grow up into a species that can take care of its home planet, as well as expand and explore, interacting with other races out there in space.
But for this to happen, we need both, the space oriented and the earth-based humans. They must find a way to co-exist in a climate of mutual respect.
Ukraine on Fire – this excellent documentary by Oliver Stone goes into the history of how the Ukraine was turned into a powder keg that eventually needed to explode. Tellingly, this film was for a long time on YouTube but has been censored there … removed. https://rumble.com/vwxxi8-ukraine-on-fire.html
Here is the UN Security council meeting on the Ukraine situation on 5 April 2022
Watching the whole three-hour meeting, I find myself cautiously optimistic that eventually a solution will be found that leaves the parties safe and stable. Despite the almost unanimous condemnation of Russia by country delegates, there were many calls for keeping cool and actually investigating (independently) the reports of war crimes and atrocities to ascertain who is to blame. There are also plenty of calls for Russia to abandon its operation that will, for now, fall on deaf ears I believe. Zelenski speaks from 39:00 to 57:00. To contrast what the Ukraine says, there are two interventions of the Russian representative, first from 1:25 to 1:38 and later again from 2:41 to 2:53. A 2-minute video with dramatic music purporting to show the result of Russian atrocities was introduced by the Ukrainian delegation and was shown to the meeting delegates at. 1:15 – 1:17 The content of the video is contested in the second Russian intervention.
Alexandr Dugin “We are the last Restrainer, the Catechon. We alone oppose global evil. Now this noble idea must be developed, this mission must be told openly and without shame. Then everything will fall into place.We are fighting against the Antichrist, this must be said. This is our Russian idea, this is how everything bends.And it’s not just about us, not just about Ukrainians or Europeans. It concerns everyone. We are fulfilling our spiritual duty with this special operation” https://www.geopolitika.ru/en/article/we-are-war-civilisation-antichrist

They say attack is the best defense. Once you start attacking, others will join. Keep that in mind…
I have written about AI before, first some years ago in a facebook note titled “I looked at the world and here is what I found” which identifies AI as the force responsible for the messed up situation in which humanity finds itself. Later on, I wrote another piece, “The Virus of Artificial Intelligence”, describing AI as a kind of virus, an anti-life force that is invading human life on earth. This piece however will turn things around, instead of AI being the active virus, it will be us humans that become the hunters, the active infiltrators of that – to most of us still imaginary – force, that is artificial intelligence or AI.
Ideally, we humans should be healthy and self-determined, economically well off, close to nature and busy improving our lives and those of others in our communities. We should have time to invest into improving our personal abilities including those spiritual (psy…) abilities that are today something of an exception, like telepathic communication, telekinesis, teleportation and the ability to freely access and perceive distant spaces, as well as past and future events and knowledge.
Far from that, we still have widespread poverty and increasing homelessness and we practically have lost our privacy and self-determination, at least with respect to health. For the technocrats who rule the day, we humans are seen as a mere resource, an object of impact investment, a populace they intend to make “be good” and behave. Through widespread testing, our DNA is no longer a private matter and is no doubt ending up in someone’s centralised database. So we have reason to complain.
The radio frequency radiation from our communications devices is predominantly in the microwave range, with an emphasis on 2.4 gigahertz (resonant frequency of water and therefore used in microwave ovens) and 60 gigahertz, the resonant frequency of oxygen widely used by the emerging 5G technology. The more sensitive among us, the canaries in the mine, are getting sick from the continuous onslaught. It appears that every “improvement” of radio and microwave technology has come with an uptick in illness. Arthur Firstenberg has written about that in “The Invisible Rainbow”. . .
I think that ultimately, the purpose of life is for life to know itself through experience … every kind of experience. Sometimes I think that we humans are really suckers for experience …
Someone, I forget who, made this play on words: “They know we know. We know they know we know. They know we know they know we know.” So we have a stalemate. Since knowledge is power, in one way or the other, the situation we find ourselves will resolve itself.
For there to have been made predictions galore about this period of clarification, of lifting of the veil, a lot must be hidden from our view, enough to make this a period of special interest for many, whether human or not.
Exposing the lies and filling in the omissions in our knowledge will be difficult to confront, if not traumatic for many. Perhaps I can somehow soften the blow by giving you a few hints as to what may be afoot and where to look to be prepared. These are my personal opinions, please don’t take them as statements of fact.
I have said before that, if you take the official story, the consensus view of reality, and you reverse that by 180 degrees, you will be right most of the time. We could almost say that all those views that have been termed “conspiracy theories” are turning out, more and more, to be the gospel truth.
Anyway, let’s not waste a lot of words. Here is my view of the areas we can expect to hear radically different stories about in the not too distant future: You may already be familiar with some of this to varying degrees…
They say “time is an illusion”. I don’t think that is quite correct. What is an illusion is human limitation to a narrow range in the vast scale of cosmic time. Just like the light we can see with our eyes is but a small slice out of a wide spectrum of electromagnetic frequencies, it appears to me that the human perception of time may be limited in a similar manner. I will try and explain …
Time is a mere consequence of the existence of matter and energy. That is why time is unique to this 3D, physical plane of existence. What creates the apparency of time is motion. We measure frequency of motion which is, the intervals between repeating events. Events are linked to matter (and energy) in motion.
Life itself is timeless and therefore, in 3D terms, eternal. It is only the physical expression of life that is subject to the laws of time, to the gradual degradation of physical integrity characteristic of existence.
Just like we have tonal scales or octaves in music, one could say there are scales of time. From the micro scale of particles – atoms and molecules – to the macro scale of stars, galaxies and universe, with us humans stuck in a narrow band somewhere in the middle. Perception of time changes with frequency of motion and just like matter therefore, time is fractal.
On a cosmic scale of time, the existence of humanity is a mere blip on the radar screen. What to us appears as thousands of years are mere moments in cosmic time. Billions of our years measure the lifetime of a star.
Humans can transcend time
Although on a cosmic time scale, what we do here on earth might seem completely insignificant, it really is not. We do have a role to play in terms of cosmic events.
Since humans are energy beings endowed with life, we are able to connect the different scales of time. Life as an eternal quality bridges all scales of time from the micro to the cosmic. The designs of life over all these scales are mysterious and full of wonder and we couldn’t even begin to understand them, unless we found a way to broaden our perspective. Other than being “mere humans”, we realise that at heart we are cosmic eternal beings.
How are we able to do that? I believe stillness may be the key. It is stillness that gives us a chance of getting a glimpse of cosmic time. So we come to realise the important role that life, including human life, plays in the cosmic designs of universe.
There is a new paradigm emerging. It says that there are serious questions about the existence of a thing we are calling “virus”. The argument is that what we see as a virus coming from the outside to infect us is actually an “exosome”, a particle emitted by our own cells in an effort to rid themselves of toxins or to adapt to an environmental stress.
The whole concept of infectious disease is therefore under serious revision, but for the purpose of this writing I will use the terminology that has been used all during the so-called corona pandemic. Just keep in mind that infection may not be what we have been told it is.
With all of the apparent insanity of corona related regulations and prohibitions, one might be forgiven to think that the Covid 19 bug is not a virus but something that attacks humans’ brains, something that prevents us from thinking straight.
Never before has an illness that manifests much like a flu and that, when all the numbers are on the table and cleaned of exaggerations, is no more deadly than our regular winter season of colds and influenza. Never before has such an event been even close to giving justification for closing shops, restaurants and churches, scuttling public events, shutting down travel, or for everyone to stay at home, keep distance from each other and wear face masks, much less the closing of hospitals for everything but essential corona business. This has been a total disruption of the normal functioning of society, justified by what essentially is turning out to be a non-event.
So what happened?
We all know it started in China, apparently in the now famous city of Wuhan, and that from there, “it” spread around the world. First projections were of great disaster and the public reactions, well rehearsed apparently and directed from the highest health authorities, were harsh and – at the time – almost understandable.
As time passed and the severity of “it” came into perspective as being much milder than was generally anticipated, the restrictive prohibitions, instead of being lifted as they should have been, were made even more severe. At first, it was supposed to be an attempt to “flatten the curve”, in order to keep hospitals from being overwhelmed by all those sick people. It soon became apparent that most hospitals were essentially standing empty, their personnel sent home, and the anticipated wave of sick people never materialized in the way it was predicted except in fictionalized media reports.
We now have a situation where, although deaths from the virus are approaching essentially zero, police in some countries are ordered to enforce strict curfews and people are chased out of parks and sent home off the beaches, at times arrested and charged or fined – insanity indeed.
Let us look at some of the background of what appears to be an unmitigated disaster of wrong judgement if not outright misdirected action on the part of government officials.
Artificial intelligence is an ability to calculate but it misses morals and it certainly misses the spark of creativity that is characteristic of life.
Machine learning algorithms have given computers the ability to learn from available data, where programming becomes an internal function to the machine. That internal programming function and the language it uses is often incomprehensible to the human programmers.
A link-up of millions if not billions of sources of information in what is called “the internet of things”, would feed the data from all monitoring cameras and sensors to a central artificial intelligence. Some say this will be a boon to mankind and others warn that there are dangers.
I was traveling yesterday. To get from Terceira island to Rome, I took an early flight out to Lisbon, and from there on to Rome. Got up at 4:30 in the morning to get to the airport in time. Although unusual for me to get up that early, it wasn’t as bad as I had imagined it. The flight itself was a wonderful experience. I had been unable to secure a ticket in economy class, so I put my hand in my pocket (figure of speech, it was all done with plastic money) and spent the money for a flight in business class. It cost me, but I am happy I did.
On both flights I had a row of seats for my self, and excellent service. Thanks TAP staff – you were great and your readiness to help much appreciated. Flying in Business gave me some time to think … time I usually don’t just take out of my day. And so I was daydreaming … imagining what the world will look like a few years hence. I would like to share the vision I had with you.
What does the future hold in store for humanity? – Dreaming the other night I took a gander…
Futurists, the professionals of prediction, are notoriously inaccurate when they seek to describe any scenario located more than just a few years in the future. Perhaps that is because their analyses are projections based on what already is. They cannot calculate the unforeseen, and so they are routinely miles off the mark if predicting even as little as two or three decades ahead.
Perhaps a dream might do better.
Note that this is a follow-on to another thing I wrote some time ago. If you haven’t seen that one, you might want to take a look…
My vision of the future
Here is the direction in which I see humanity developing. By necessity, I can only paint that picture in very broad brush strokes. There are lots of details I can not yet fill in, and much of that will be dreamed up by others, rather than myself. The common effort will be one of co-creation. It is your imagination, as well as mine, that will shape our common future…
