You Are Significant in Your Insignificance!
That’s what they’re selling you with this graph. This is a ruse used very often by hucksters and snake-oil salesmen. They offer you the sugar with their ‘bitters’.
Problem: The ontological scope of the graph does not account for all of the aspects of being human (that we are aware of at this time). Of course you’re supposed to know that.
“We didn’t mean it that way.” they’ll tell you…
How many unsuspecting people believe this sophisticated form of lying? Now, see it with ‘new eyes’.
Obedience Is Inhumane
Except for those who’s income depends upon conformity and/or denial… then you’re on the wrong side of history. Think about it.
You know you’re working against yourself when you marginalize others to serve your own willful ignorance (“Conspiracy Theorist!”, “Nut Job”, “Anti-semite”, “Racist”). The perpetrators of our mutual demise have supplied you with heinous weaponry.
The greatest expression of cowardice is to deny your own conscience.
“Hunting” for Life in the Universe… Who Speaks For Earth?
Let’s be careful exactly WHO speaks for us. People who “want to hunt for other life” do that to their own too. Perhaps we need other ‘stewards’ of our world to make first contact with another planetary/galactic civilization.
Whoever ends up owning the world should know that our neighbors ‘out there’ will be very interested in who we are and our history. Will our ‘representatives’ tell those neighbors the truth or will they lie?
Many of the ‘problems’ we have in the world are as artificial as the solutions being manufactured to solve them. Some of the most well-known ‘problems’ are those like the myth of overpopulation (http://overpopulationisamyth.com/overpopulation-the-making-of-a-myth), world poverty, war, terrorism, financial crisis, peak oil,… and soon: peak water (caused by activities such as fracking and the merchandising of water).
Another artificial problem of recent times is known by many names: global cooling (1970s),… ah…, global warming (late 1980s to 2010),… ah…, climate change (Bilderberg 2010).
The ‘stewards’ of our world have been complaining about our problems (in many cases) for a long time now. The question arises as to why, if they were so important, that they haven’t been solved by now? We would be living in the clouds and traveling to the planets if they had done what we trusted them to do in the first place.
Instead they are busily animating the ‘makers and shakers’ of our world with loads of fake money to prematurely build a global civilization whilst running roughshod over all of our personal and collective sovereignty to get there. Those who execute the plans have no idea that they too will be ‘on the menu’ in a later phase after being of use in the earlier ones!
In order to perform this slight-of-hand, they require global problems (such as those above) to provide the thin lines of plausibility to their ends. All the while they have been telling the rest of us that we spread like a virus (like in the film: Matrix).
They believe the lie that “the ends justify the means” when the truth is, the ends are fashioned by their means. All ends are inextricably tied to the means used to arrive at them. We see the results of their lie when they develop technologies too soon, weaponize them and insert control mechanisms into them.
Everywhere there is artificiality: from AI (artificial intelligence) to artificial poverty (austerity); from artificial understanding (category theory) to artificial philosophy (systems theory, chaos theory,…); from artificial physics (Higg’s Boson, Big Bang,…) to artificial biology (synthetic biology in the video); from artificial finance (bankster bail-outs, inside trading, Libor, derivatives, CAFR,…) to fake money (central banking, money as debt); from artificial catastrophes (overpopulation, terrorism, war, financial collapse) to artificial scarcity (zero-sum resource mindset),… even artificial food (margarine, ‘ice cream’, and other fat-free junk, sweeteners,…), artificial people (robots) and artificial diversity (unchecked and unwanted immigration).
This video dovetails all of the aspects above and directs our attention towards premature globalisation arising out of the artificially created chaos around us. I’d like to know if we really want these kinds of people (who are only a small portion of our population) representing us in a galactic or even universal context?
Will our ‘representatives’ be proud of their ‘stewardship’ of humanity? Will they be able to show how they created constructive solutions to aid even the most needy of their own kind? Or will they need to keep a secret so large, that even our neighbors out there wouldn’t want anything to do with us? Humanity will never be trusted in a galactic or even universal context, if we don’t choose our way carefully now.
Who is deciding that this is the ‘medicine’ we need, not to mention what we want?
Here the reductionism is reducing thought to brain pattern recognition and the remembrance of them (named modules in this video) building hierarchies of modules. These hierarchies are mechanized by ascribing statistical likelihoods of contextual relevance and applicability to levels ‘higher’ up in the chain!
This statistical information (uncertainty is what they call it in other contexts) is also allowed to trickle down and alter the underlying levels below it to adjust their own set of probabilities into likely short-term expectations for their internal use in upcoming iterations.
By analogy and abstraction (that is missing from this video, but inferred) the model is then deemed (implicitly) to explain Qualia (qualitative consciousness) and all the while using tools that are strictly quantitative in capability!
It’s attempted in the video to make this ‘theory’ acceptable, plausible and trendy (for people who don’t know any better) by using some “algorithm which is similar to something called a hierarchical hidden Markov models” (06:27) as their supporting process! It’s as if we are in a submarine sending out pings to an undersea terrain and only able to recognize objects we have seen before!
Essentially they are using a horribly incomplete metaphysical foundation to explain our minds and do their best to convince us they can! Who says that thinking is purely biological (or even non-biological)?
If you can take anything from what I’m saying here, it is this: you cannot derive qualitative properties and relations from quantitative means! Even if at (09:07) it is said we can.

Come and Listen To Meaning in Music
I’ve enjoyed this song since 2011 and needed to share it today.

We are being fed disinformation telling us that we never had privacy and to get used to this new ‘environment’. We must reject this false set of memes!
If you think you have nothing to hide, think again! What if someone you love and cherish does have something to hide and the watchers frame you for being related to them? If they can watch your every move and thought, then they can replace them as well and say it was you!
We are in a whole new ball game of spying – watch and see!
Our Children Need You
and not some ‘face in the crowd’.
Find the courage even in small ways to make others aware of our responsibilities with respect to where we are in mankind’s unfolding.
“Freedom of Speech is a Privilege Intended for Educated Professionals”
“It should be illegal… if he cannot verify his statements…”
This is what happens when ‘Authority’ has been perverted to cancel an inherent right of humanity!
Are these ramifications being considered in Google Search?
Google is making what I feel are really big mistakes right now basing its technology upon the work of people who promulgate fear-control based paradigms and archetypes. Google is creating a beast that will devour even itself! See this, for an example: https://plus.google.com/104704674433954659866/posts/Mw9BR6WZNSQ
Behind the desire to stop gaming of Search from the outside, they do not provide us with a guarantee that Search will not be gamed from the inside!
What if you are deemed unpopular or dangerous to the ruling power monopoly?
Will they still let you have a voice or will they call you ‘non-authoritive’ or claim you’re not part of the search results because of a programming error!
It’s also about trust:
I’ve programmed SaaS applications (basically, cloud applications) and learned the basics of that technology from a well-known university which I won’t name here.
I was often in dispute with the professor and his proverbial ‘disciples’ (until they began to ignore me 😉 ) about the failing code of ethics and guarantee of privacy in the SaaS paradigm. Now, more than a year later, they ‘magically’ have made small progress in that vein.
I still wouldn’t trust them with my data and you shouldn’t either!
The terms and framing they have chosen will not save them from the coming ‘disruptive’ (using their term – I would use the term ‘reharmonizing’ instead) technologies that are coming down the pike which are going to change things drastically for everyone in a constructive(!) way! Google’s framing now, in comparison with these technologies as they arrive, will become a ‘straightjacket’ for itself.
There are those who are aware of this coming time (it’s all approaching a critical threshold very soon) and are preparing for it now, by creating free and open source technology with regard to Search and based upon a completely different paradigm of trust, openness and distributed control by putting that control in the hands of the user themselves.
(for just two of them)
This technology will be coming of age in the next 2 years – provided our controllers don’t take what’s left of the playing field away – which they have done before.
My attention has been recently brought again to the book: Thinking, Fast and Slow.
There is so much ‘work’ out there to comment on that it would take many lifetimes to cover it all, but this one hits me right in the gut: it’s about heuristics.
Of course there are many insightful aspects to the book and I hope this post induces people to buy and read the book! It is definitely worth that effort!
There is much truth in the book and useful considerations regarding the psychology of thought (at least for me).
There is a universal constant in our universe that I call the ‘Near and Far Contraposition’. This constant is responsible for the effect we experience when we look at things close up verses far away.
It ‘makes it’s appearance’ when we say things like; “He can’t see the forest for the trees.”
I will describe this constant more below as time permits me to do so.
This post will delve into the misconceptions in the book regarding a heuristic and heuristics in general with respect to mind, thought and, most importantly, knowledge and its representation.
Your thoughts are welcome too, but allow me to do this piecemeal. We all are impacted by this artificial environment created for us that causes stress and economy in our lives. It is possible to an extent to ‘divorce’ ourselves from these frenetic states, but when our customers do not ‘cooperate’ (due to different priorities, perspectives and needs) with our efforts, then it does present challenges for us.
The source article is a deception (Source: http://www.theguardian.com/environment/earth-insight/2014/mar/14/nasa-civilisation-irreversible-collapse-study-scientists)
The globalist parasites that feed on us and have built this culture/environment we are ‘living’ in want us to believe the destruction they are bringing down upon humanity is a normal cycle.
If we believe them, then we deserve our fate!
Yet a natural process is taking place!
Outliers who occupy an upper ‘elite’ section of a distribution have always led the rest of the population it belongs to. What is decisively important is what attributes that small group shares and projects onto the rest.
This natural process can act as a sort of illness/enslavement or a healing/empowerment upon the rest of the population. This ‘constant form’ finds expression in practically every living system and upon multiple levels.
The need for illness and enslavement of the remaining population is a sign where this ‘elite class’ is based upon fear and control which is malevolent in nature. This leads to a severance of membership to the rest of the population and its own destruction and, quite possibly, the remaining population.
The need for healing and empowerment of the remaining population is a sign where this ‘elite class’ is based upon love and trust which is benevolent in nature. This leads to a binding of membership to the rest of the population and its own survival and, quite possibly, the remaining population.
We are being ruled by a malevolent elite class which has gone rogue and, like a cancer, wrapped its metastases in, through and around the rest of us. They do this by eliciting the aid of those who are asleep or unaware among us or by those who are awake/aware, but are unwilling or unable to resist them.
The ‘natural’ cycles mentioned in the article need not be! It is up to us to decide here and now what side of history we want to be on.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is quoted to have said: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.”
If that statement is true, then we are here for many reasons:
To discover who we are.
To create who we are.
To decide who we are.
To witness others.
To be of aid or be of service to others.
Who will you be, witness,… serve?
