This work is a dead end waiting to happen. Of course it will attract much interest, money, and perhaps even yield new insights into the commonality of language, but there’s better ways to get there.
What’s even more sad is that they, who should know better, will see my intentions in making this clear as destructive criticism instead of a siren warning regarding research governed/originating through a false paradigm. These people cannot see or overlook the costs humanity pays for the misunderstandings research like this causes and is based upon.
It’s even worse in the field of genetic engineering with their chimera research. The people wasting public money funding this research need to be gotten under control again.
I don’t want to criticize the researcher’s intentions. It’s their framing and methodology that I see as primitive, naive, and incomplete.
I’m not judging who they are nor their ends; rather, their means of getting there.
“Quantification” is exactly the wrong way to ‘measure/compare semantics; not to mention “partitioning” them!
1) The value in this investigation that they propose is to extrapolate and interpolate ontology. Semantics are more than ontology. They possess a complete metaphysics which includes their epistemology.
2) You cannot quantify qualities, because you reduce the investigation to measurement; which itself imposes meaning upon the meaning you wish to measure. Semantics, in their true form, are relations and are non-physical and non-reducible.
3) Notice also, partitioning is imposed upon the semantics (to make them ‘measurable/comparable’). If you compare semantics in such a way then you only get answers in terms of your investigation/ontology.
4) The better way is to leave the semantics as they are! Don’t classify them! Learn how they are related. Then you will know how they are compared.
There’s more to say, but I think you get the idea… ask me if you want clarification…
Your life depends upon this knowledge, since our ‘owners’ belong to this group of humanity and are responsible for most of the suffering in our world.
We would be living on other planets and travelling to the stars right now if we hadn’t stood by and allowed them to make a mess of our world. We are called upon, for the sake of ALL, to now stop these parasitic ‘vampires’ forming a blight on the whole of humanity.
We must only stop obeying them. They cannot lead us if we don’t let them. If we don’t, we will be pulled farther into their nightmare which their fears have created for us.
There are dangerously FEW humans in the universe. Will we allow our wings to be clipped before we have a chance to unfold them?
Good Intentions – False Causality – Sadly, Therefore Meager Cure
Earth Day: This is another brilliant video that unfortunately assigns the condition of our world to humans as a whole.
Certainly WE ALL are responsible by allowing it to happen in OUR name, but the corporations (artificial persons) and the banksters (which run the corporations) are who have performed the deed!
Yes, WE looked on, but we trusted them and they failed us all. Now WE must do something about it! He is absolutely wrong in that we must NOT look away from how our governments are dictated by corporations! (which have become the real countries)
We are losing our individual and collective sovereignty through ruses like ‘Climate Change’ (Global taxing scheme).
We should now take the corporations down and replace them with real humans and not the 1871 version that allows them to enjoy those rights of being human and yet are exempt from the responsibilities that real humans must answer to.
This man is well intentioned, but not up to par on what needs to be done. He is passionate, but unfortunately not enlightened. The onus is on us for allowing it to continue, but the onus is on the corporations and banksters, for directing humanity towards where we have come!
Why is Fukushima no longer in the news?
Why is the Gulf spill no longer in the news?
Why do we no longer think about them?
Here is where WE ALL are responsible!
Hoarding Can Be Cancer Too
This short video’s symbolism and message is paradigm changing. The video stems from a religious message and also contains a bit of idealism, but has meaning even to agnostics and atheists alike.
The Universe is suffering from a shortage of humans right now. Please do your share to rectify this situation by having many children who do not need to hoard.
The true measure of the value of a society finds expression in how it treats its weakest members: the old, infirm, and children.
It Starts as a Fear and Becomes a Cancer
This post offers a brief and partial answer to the question: “Why is it that humanity must suffer so deeply and yet those who cause that suffering can bring themselves to inflict such harm on others?”
There is what I call a disjunct in the minds of those who can make others suffer… it happens this way:
It starts with fear. If you mix that fear with high intelligence (which most of them have), the fear is amplified very drastically. Their knowledge of the world around them gives them even that much more to fear, because they are so intelligent. The ‘snake’ begins to eat it’s own tail and causes begin to create themselves anew – with each new coil of the snake their fear manifests its own reasons to increase!
That fear leads to their need to control in order to compensate for it. They notice though that most other people are trusting. They convince themselves (wrongly) that those trusting people around them are less sophisticated than they (i.e. they become an exception to themselves with respect to the rest of humanity), otherwise those others would need to fear and need to control as much as they do.
Ergo: those who are trusting are schmucks or ‘makes’ that are asking to be screwed.
In order to counter this distortion they sense in their view of the world, they tell themselves they are ‘special’ and lie to themselves reaching hegemonic conviction with statements like: “The ends justify the means.” or any other permission to continue making their world ‘safe’. The truth is that the ends are determined by their means. (destructive means ALWAYS lead to destructive ends – it’s a natural law)
This ‘cancer’ begins to cause a feedback loop in their psyche. They need to ‘touch’ and ‘mark’ all things they purvey to make themselves ‘safe’.
It metastasizes into a need to even control and pervert everything and everyone around them. They can’t even have sex without some sort of perversion. It’s usually they who become pedophiles.
Their obsession with control mechanisms forces them to confuse chutzpah with ruthlessness and bravery with cruelty.
It is also they who ‘paint’ our skies with artificial clouds to witness their ‘mark’ in assuaging their fear and to express their thirst for more control.
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.
Self-organization? NO! Organization’s purpose: epistemology, otherwise the organization is artificial.
… a purpose in everything… even if we do not yet recognize it!
”The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but, on building the new.”
(The ‘best’ of us are sometimes capable of the worst.)
Here is what I wrote to the Sherriff’s office:
Don’t you know that your police union and the people who are in control will also be after you when they get done using you to go after us?
Wake up please! We must stick together!
When the shtf, the people who are asking you to do warrentless searches are the only ones who’ll profit from our fighting each other.
They will sit off-shore and do game theoretical betting on us while we go through our second civil war!
Please don’t let that happen! We must stick together!
Sincerely and with all the best thoughts to you and your office.
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.
Forget positive and negative thoughts and move towards understanding the more general differentiation of constructive and destructive thoughts.
Neuroplasticity and how it can, for just one example, cure OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) without drugs!
I’ve been reading this man’s work since 2005 and I’m just as enthusiastic now about it as I was back then!

Come and Listen To Meaning in Music
I’ve enjoyed this song since 2011 and needed to share it today.
AI (Artificial Intelligence) may be easier, but OI (Organic Intelligence) is more comprehensive.
Muster all of your courage to break loose from conventional wisdom on knowledge and you will be open to new potential that just may, if you are diligent, bring you to the ‘promised land’.
Don’t take the word of an outsider (outlier) like me. Simply open your mind to other possibilities.
“And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear their music.” – Friedrich Nietzsche
‘Music’ our technology is trying to replace instead of understand.
Adaption = Celebration
Watch to really understand (see) the connection.

The principles of organization in qualitative authenticity… from a ‘Cosmic Snoop’!
“We’ve been given a physics of non-life…”
“To be alive you constantly change yourself…”
“Life is the inventor…”
“Humans are different than animals, because they are story telling creatures.”
Someday people will junk the ‘theory’ (if you can call it that!) on the junk pile like phrenology!
(pssst… there’s a VERY short conclusion in case you don’t have time to read the whole article.)
As if it were a ‘combination lock’, if we begin to ask the right questions… the ‘tumblers’ move…
