Ukraine and the Future of Humanity

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.

Here is the UN Security council meeting on the Ukraine situation on 5 April 2022

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9-GvM1Ln2g

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.

Here a video that goes into the history of the US domination – by force – of the rest of the world, any country that could in any way touch US interests …

The Artificial Intelligence Wars

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. 

Technological radiation

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”. . .

Apocalypse or Revelation, lifting the Veil

“What is the purpose of life?” 

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…

Time and the Cosmic Being

Visible light a narrow slice of electromagnetic spectrum

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.

Behind Corona…

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.

The virus of Artificial Intelligence

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…

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?

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…

Are humans really at the top of the food chain?

We pride ourselves to be at the top of the food chain … but are we really?

In the animal world, we have the lion who knows he’s the strongest predator and has no equal. Yet, humans hunt the lion with spears, traps and now with guns. We can kill the lion or catch him at our pleasure. In the seas, no fish is more voracious than the shark. Sharks know they are at the top of their food chain. Yet we catch the shark with bait and hook and kill him. Many a shark is caught only to be mutilated. Humans – if we can call them that – cut off the shark’s fins and throw the still living creature back into the sea to die a painful death. The fins are dried and sold for good price as a delicacy.

So humans, we think, must be the most powerful creatures in the world. Even the scriptures tell us that the world is ours to inhabit and control. It is true … if we only look at the physical, the world of animals that surrounds us, we’re hot shit, we’re really in control. But as soon as we consider the spiritual, the picture changes.  Continue reading “Are humans really at the top of the food chain?”

I looked at the world the other day … here is what I found

This was first published in January 2017 as a note on facebook.
To friends and family – here is something I wrote the other day and it is time I got it off my chest …

“Communication is the universal solvent … Love is the glue”

I wanted to tell you all that in the near future I should be out and around in the world, traveling, visiting, doing what I can to unify those who care to travel this new path with me. Details are not really in focus yet, but in general terms, I will be doing what I can to help bring together all the different streams of Life on our wonderful blue planet, so together they might in time form a majestic river…

But first things first – let’s look at the situation we are finding ourselves in.

The current situation on Mother Earth looks rather glum

Access to resources is reserved to a few, wars are waged for profit and for domination, religious and racial hatred is at an all time high, poverty is completely unnecessary … yet it persists, destruction of our natural environment is the order of the day, entire species are on the verge of going extinct, including our own, if we persist down the path we are currently taking … anyway, whatever bad thing you can think of – you name it … it’s happening here! Our problems don’t seem to resolve … actually, they are getting worse and worse as time goes by.

Why is this?

In my view, the destructive trends we witness are carefully calculated and planned.

The objective, it would seem, is to subjugate and eventually wipe out all thinking, free life on earth and for that matter, in the universe.

It might even be that right here, right now, we are living in a place that could be the last bastion of resistance of real life in this whole universe…

Who or what would be pushing such an anti-life agenda?

Let’s just say that the perpetrator I identified when looking more closely and putting it all together is digital. It is synthetic “life” … we call it “artificial intelligence” … which really is a force of death, directly opposed to and intent on wiping out real free Life – human and otherwise – in all its various forms and manifestations.

You might ask: Do we have a chance against such a formidable enemy, such a comprehensive onslaught?
