Zero G Fakery: More Plausible Than You Thought….

This is a really great video, speculative to be sure, but speculative within the bounds of lots of corroborating perpendicular evidence. I really DO believe the I.S.S. is being faked, one way or another, and honestly when we consider what can be constructed in terms of things like CERN and so many other places, building a mock space station on Earth and employing fake zero gravity would be comparatively small potatoes. (I do think they use wires in some of the older ISS footage, however…)

“Meritocracy”, another anti-Establishment message brought to you by, the Establishment…

If you told me the following video was created as a clever piece of satire, I’d probably believe it, and find the whole thing to be a rather entertaining parody which quite adequately portrays how the an idealistic new political system might be advertised to a younger generation who “know all about the Elites, and hate them…”

Unfortunately, this is all completely real…

But really it serves as a terrific textbook example of Hegelianesque social engineering at work. One of the things of interest to me in this little video pitch, is how it all falls so nicely into the growing stream of millennial-generation political thought which one many levels has a greater awareness of there being an “Elite”, and on the surface seems to pushing back against a good many truly odious forces in our modern society. It is Zeitgeist phenomena trying to turn the corner into tangible political action. The “Occupy Movement” hoping to gain genuine traction and dethrone those pernicious “One-percenters”…

However… “There is nothing new under the sun”… It would seem that the Ecclesiastical Biblical maxim holds true, yet again. As a quote from Patrick Wood’s technocracyrising.com reads:

“In the heat of the Great Depression during the 1930s, prominent scientists and engineers proposed a utopian energy-based economic system called Technocracy that would be run by those same scientists and engineers instead of elected politicians. Although this radical movement lost momentum by 1940, it regained status when it was conceptually adopted by the elitist Trilateral Commission. (co-founded by Zbigniew Brzezinski and David Rockefeller) in 1973 to be become its so-called “New International Economic Order.”

As far as I can tell, the differences between Technocracy, and Meritocracy, are merely subtle discrepancies in the way the same core concept is being packaged and presented. As such, the basic tenets of Meritocracy are neither new, nor any genuine threat to the entrenched power brokers who originally spawned and funded such propositions in the first place, almost a hundred years ago. There are many interviews and lectures Wood has given, breaking down the elaborated definition of all that Technocracy was championed as in the past, as is finding a resurgence now once again. It does make a lot of sense that in our technologically-infused age, this kind of ideology would find an increasing amount of sympathy, where instead of spoiled billionaires and pompous politicians, people would welcome the suggestion of having engineers, scientists, (i.e., the “Technocrasts”) run things. After all, we’ve already seen people worship figures like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates, for their perceived techno-revolutionary Buddha-like wisdom and philanthropic altruism, why not put people like that in charge…?

And so, the familiar Hegelian dance sashes on. Front foot thesis, back foot anti-thesis, everybody shuffle over into synthesis…

As has been before, in so many previous prepackaged “counter-culture” movements, the ideological seeds of this “grass-roots” were first nurtured under the warm lamps of an “Institutional Greenhouse” of thought manipulation. And, also like so many other “independent” and allegedly fight-the-Man groups and movements, we once again see how the same familiar kinds of long-used Establishment/Esoteric symbolism keep popping up as doubleheadedphoenixwell. The compass/rose of the main “Meritocracy” logo is telling in and of itself, yet I also found this other symbol that is supposedly affiliated with the Meritocracy political movement, and was rather amazed at how much it resembled a somewhat abstracted version of the double-headed eagle/phoenix, a symbol of Empire, secret societies and mystical ambitions of power which goes back who-knows-how-many millennia…

Of course, speculations involving symbolism is always just that in the end, speculation. But, what I would heavily argue is NOT speculation, is that the both the political mechanisms being proposed in the video above, as well as the broader almost Utopian vision being touted, is undeniable the very SAME vision that has been held by the very Elites which the naïve young believers in Meritocracy have convinced themselves they are going to break away from. It’s merely a different road to the same ultimate destination. Or maybe not even that far, maybe only more like a newly upgraded billboard, on the same road, to the same NWO destination…

I mean, come on, the guy is in his twenties after all, and he’s wearing a sport coat over a cool-looking graphic tee. You think stodgy old New World Order billionaires and aristocrats are hip to wearing graphic tees? No way man… 😉 Never mind that as the video goes on, it becomes increasingly hard to tell if the Illuminati-related images being shown in the background are included as examples of things intended to be done away with, or actually emulated and pursued, only in a younger, more hipster-friendly way. The Georgia Guidestones? Hey those are cool, as long the people putting their message of massive population reduction into effect are smart, educated, tech-savvy scientists, and not a bunch of stuffy lame media-mogul billionaires…

In the end, the only conclusion I am able to come to is that Meritocracy is simply Technocracy 2.0. It is a political ideology which ultimately seeks to establish the same globalist, totalitarian, privacy-eliminating, “data-omniscient”, State-worshipping goals already being advocated by the current batch of ruling “crats”, and only attempts to repackage it in such a way as to make it appear less threatening, more “scientifically-based”, more environmentally-friendly, and overall more attractive to a world embracing the integration of technology into every corner our everyday lives.

So… “Out with the Old, in with the New”, but then… “Everything that was old, is new again!” Please stop the merry-go-round sir, I want to get off. I think I just threw up a little bit on my graphic tee..

CERN: “It has a lot to do with you, and the Bible…”

The above is a fantastic RSE montage made from a recent sermon by Pastor Charles Lawson, the full sermon is here. Even though I’m usually not the hugest fan of “good ol’ fashioned Baptist preachin”, I have to admit that I am quite inspired to hear this man speaking out about this. I don’t think CERN is the kind of thing being addressed in too many pulpits these days…

But of course the “alternative media” is all over it. Gonz just had a fantastic interview with Stan Deyo about it, and the whole issue of the possibility of opening interdimensional portals/gates, and extra-dimensional beings possibly coming through etc.

Getting Ready to “Download Personalities from the Cloud”…

“Google patents robots with personalities in first step towards the singularity.”

This is not science fiction, this is “mainstream news“….

The story below is from the Independent:

Google has been awarded a patent for the ‘methods and systems for robot personality development’, a glimpse at a future where robots react based on data they mine from us and hopefully don’t unite and march on city hall.

The company outlines a process by which personalities by which personalities could be downloaded from the cloud to “provide states or moods representing transitory conditions of happiness, fear, surprise, perplexion, thoughtfulness, derision and so forth. ”

Its futuristic vision seems to be not of a personalized robot for each human but a set of personality traits that can be transferred between different robots.

“The personality and state may be shared with other robots so as to clone this robot within another device or devices,” it said in the patent.

“In this manner, a user may travel to another city, and download within a robot in that city (another “skin”) the personality and state matching the user’s “home location” robot. The robot personality thereby becomes transportable or transferable.”

It doesn’t sound dissimilar from the opening of a Will Smith sci-fi movie, with one robot’s evil data genes spreading via the cloud to all its other robot brethren.

While this sounds far-fetched, the technological singularity – the point at which artificial intelligence exceeds man’s intellectual capacity and produces a runaway effect – is something that Stephen Hawking, Bill Gates and Elon Musk have all expressed concern over.

Google is probably just safeguarding for the future, however, and is unlikely to release any products that require the patent to be employed anytime soon. We’ve still yet to create a robot that can convincingly walk up stairs, so an apocalyptic army is probably a long way off.

Portal-Mania…

portalfunction

In light of the fact that they are now once again juicing up the flux capacitors at CERN (they use flux capacitors at CERN, right? I’m pretty sure they do…) in order to rip holes in the space-time continuum and collapse the dimensional divides, in order to usher in some Nephilim-horde army, I’ve been thinking about portals a fair bit lately. Well, I don’t really think all that, I was kidding of course. That’s silly. All those billions of dollars spent on a national-boundary-spanning hadron collider are so we can finally solve a theorem of quantum mechanics that 99.9999999% of humanity is too mathematically-challenged to understand in the first place. I think they’re hoping that enough power will be applied this time around so that they can finally know which final mark to make on that worn-out chalkboard at CERN, after which they’ll finally get to sit back and relax with a nice cup of tea and game of Sudoku…

cernportalsNah. Just kidding again. I am uCERNtain what exactly to make of it all, but I don’t think it’s something to be completely unconCERNed about. Ha, more shameless CERN-worldplay.

But ok… I know I’ve written about portals before, and here I go again, without having a whole heck of lot to try and say about the topic in any real “meaty” way (I’m no quantum-physicist, I confess) but what I DO find myself marveling at, again and again, is just how much this concept is just constantly showing up in entertainment/Hollywood etc., again and again. It’s something I see I don’t how many times in an average week, so, I finally sat down and tried to find images from all the recent examples I could remember, just to see what it would be. I wound up with folders within folders, literally, over a hundred images. I couldn’t possibly use them all, so I chose a few of my favorites and had some photoshop playtime…

portalsposter1

But wait… Science fiction films/shows for adults aren’t the only place you see copious amounts of portal-related entertainment. One thing that has seriously blown me away over the past several years now as a parent, is how much my KIDS have been completely reared by modern children’s entertainment to be so utterly familiar with the basic concept of inter-dimensional travel that they essentially have assumed it was REAL from the time they could speak. Think about that… I mean, if I were to sit down with one of my kids and try to explain to them with words things like “teleportation” or “quantum folds” etc., then they’d just stare at me drooling while I rambled for an hour and accomplished nothing. But alas, cartoons and movies and video games have easily achieved what wouldn’t even know how to attempt. It’s literally EVERYWHERE, from hit video games like Minecraft (a big favorite in our house) to the Lego Movie, even My Little Pony. (!) I mean, when my youngest son was like THREE, if he saw some image even remotely resembling some kind of “swirling spiral”, his immediate response was just, “Hey look, a portal”, just as nonchalantly as if he saw a representation of a house or a tree or a rainbow…

So anyhoo, about a week ago I finally got to sit down and watch “Big Hero 6” with my ninos, and what “sci fi” concept happens to feature prominently in the storyline, yet again….? Yeah, you guessed it.
portalsforkids

I dunno what to make of it all exactly, but one thing I do know is that if suddenly tomorrow it was announced that the “greatest scientific achievement in history” had finally been accomplished and interstellar travel was not proven to be possible through some incredible breakthrough in quantum mechanics, my children would almost certainly not be glued to the television, having their minds blown.

They’d probably just say something like “well DUH Dad, it’s just a portal…”

The Truth is stranger than Radio…. (project in the works…)

truthradioOk, so I’ve been kicking around the idea of doing some kind of podcast / radio project / “radio” sort of thang / for quite some time now, but still haven’t quite got there, although I am constantly playing around with sounds/music for “intros”, as that seems to be fun to do just for it’s own sake, and so perhaps that is even half my motive for wanting to do such a thing in the first place.  🙂  But anyhow, I’m still in the “brainstorming” phase really, (I suppose I more or less live in the that phase, but no matter…) and really I don’t know exactly where it might go, but all I think I do know at this point is that I’d want it to be something different, something very free and open in it’s format, and honestly I don’t think I’m looking to do another “let’s sit and interview this author/speaker/person” show, not because I don’t like those types of podcasts, because I love em, it’s just that I don’t necessarily think that’s either my “strength” or my cup o’ tea necessarily…

I think I’m more envisioning something more compilation-oriented, in the vein of say, NPR radio-shows such as “This American Life”, or “Radiolab”, if you’re familiar with those. Just more like little collections of “sound vignettes” and more like just random recorded conversations with people, about, well, all the fun/weird/crazy/prophetic stuff that typically finds it’s way onto the blog here, only I think I’d actually be hoping to collaborate with a lot of my fellow YOUs out there, in a project like this, my friends (and just anybody really) out there in the ‘sphere who might want to talk about, well, anything… How’s that sound? I’d love to just get recordings of stuff like, people’s testimonies, views on what’s going on in the world, governments, pop culture, music, art, the Bible, “spirituality”, conspiracies, NWO, movies, books, and of course, TRUTH!

I already have several of you specifically in mind, so be prepared to start getting some emails peeps, and please, do take the time to let me know what kinds of things YOU’D be interested in talking about, listening to, and just seeing tried overall. It’s not intended to be the most amazing thing you’ve ever heard in terms of “production value” or anything, nor is it hoped to be something that would garner some massive audience. It’s just, like this blog, another small outlet, a way of hopefully being able connect in a slightly “deeper” way with lots of other people out there, collaborate, get creative, and actually be able to hear the tones in each other’s voices…. Here’s one of the “intros” I’ve come up with:

WordPress Reader Woes…

6636556953_08a05f7fe2No, not talking about you, a reader of wordpress blogs, talkin about the “WordPress Reader”, which allows all WP bloggers to customize their own hub of blogs “followed”, which then pop up in your Reader the second they are published.

The thing is, when I first started using wordpress, (as opposed to Google’s blogger, which I tried first) I loved the whole Reader component. Ol’ BlogSpot never had anything like it when I was over there, not sure if they do now. But anyhow, the ability to have all your followed blogs be tossed like the morning paper on your digital doorstep was a fantastic idea to a person as lazy as myself. After a while, once I had established a wide enough range of followed blogs, I basically realized that more often than not, WP Reader was my go-to news aggregator, veritably eliminating the need to really go anywhere else to hear about anything of much import. In fact, a quick glance at my WP Reader usually gave me a greater awareness of what’s going on in the world (of true import) than a look at any “official” news syndicate. Very cool.

But then, you start to encounter hiccups… First, I began to realize that when I would follow certain blogs that I did indeed find interesting, the fact that sometimes those particular blogs were so, um, “prolific” that they would essentially fill up my Reader to such an extent that I’d be regularly completely missing posts from other blogs I truly loved. I don’t mean “prolific” in the sense of those bloggers who find the time to actually themselves write several amazing posts a day. I mean the ones who will post (or re-post) like 20 things a day. Sometimes they will rarely write a single word of their own, just post copious amounts of material from elsewhere along some singular theme…

Now, I’m not trying to dog these folks, after all, I chose to follow them, I could very well un-follow them, but then, at the same time I DO find interesting stuff in the mix every now then from those aggressive re-posters, stuff I would’ve never come across otherwise, and so, it creates a bit of a pickle…bookface

Do I cull the mega-posters from my Reader, so as to make sure I don’t miss posts from the those I know are worth the read every time they post? Or do I continue on trying to weed through the morass of stuff in my Reader every day, because I’m ever so addicted to encountering that odd and unexpected tidbit of information…?

What IS the generally-accepted sustainable number of followed blogs in a WP Reader anyhow? Any thoughts fellow WP’ers? Any tricks you’ve learned that maybe I’m missing here? I more or less wish there was some way that I could categorize my followed blogs into different subsections, ya know? Like, click this and see my favorite followeds, click that and see everything, click there and see the weird stuff, etc….

Integratronics….

integratron0While watching an older episode of Anthony Bourdain last night we stumbled an interesting bit of Americana. Bourdain was cruising around the Californian desert with the frontman for Queens of the Stone Age, and one of the places they stopped was a place named “The Integratron”, a dome-shaped building out in the middle of nowhere, built out of wood and interlaced with copper wires and other things, where they stopped for a “sound bath”, basically a meditative session where they lay in the dome and the hosts created chakra-opening tones using crystal bowls…

The interesting thing to me is the history of this “Integration” design, and it’s builder, Mr. George Van Tassell, who I confess I’d never heard of before this. (I’m sure amongst UFO buffs he’s super old news, but hey)

106084077_medium_6b2e6dThe Integratron is built in close proximity to “Giant Rock”, which is where it all begins. The massive boulder is (of course) a site long considered sacred to Natives for it’s spiritual properties, which wound up being the “home” of a man named Frank Critzer. Critzer was a homeless prospector who somehow came across Giant Rock and, much like Patrick the starfish from SpongeBob Squarepants, proceeded to carve out a little domicile for himself underneath the humongiant_rock1gous stone. Van Tassell had become friends with Critzer shortly before he dug out his little cave-dwelling, and after some time became a frequent participant in group meditation sessions that Critzer would hold in his underground home.

Then Van Tassell is visited by a “space man”, who tells him all sorts of things, including a “formula” for time travel, and the design schematics for what would eventually take shape as the Integratron structure.


Now to me, when you look at the broader sequence of how the history of this place unfolds, I think it serves as a rather telling example of how the “UFO phenomenon” is indeed real, but ultimately of a very spiritual nature. The place existed for ages as a known epicenter of “energies”, and as such it functioned as a location whereby meditation and communication with the spirit realm was enhanced. While the Integratron design given to Van Tassell fails achieve “time travel” in the classic sense, it nevertheless proves to indeed exhibit all kinds of strange and pronounced effects in relation to meditative practices. So again, we see a very familiar pattern that emerges quite often when examining the Ufology, this sort of boomerang effect, where there is often an initial connection to some ancient shamanic location or practice, which then in the 50’s or 60’s is tied to some experience involving “spacemen” or “spacecraft” or both, from which is gleaned some form of information that ultimately points people BACK to ancient, shamanic beliefs and practices…

Integratron-(2)-500The figure of Van Tassell is of further curiousity when it is noted that not only was he (like so many others) a military man involved in the aerospace industry, but he actually worked for/with “eccentric billionaire” (and CIA asset) Howard Hughes, there are apparently also correlations between the designs of the Integratron with the technologies of the much speculated over Nikola Tesla. Heck, even Billy Corgan thought the place was cool enough to shoot a video there…

Outrageous Coincidence Theories…

bcc8bdf6d269f237c278a2e85bdb5623“Coincidence theory”. Oh, how I wish I had come up with that one… I didn’t of course, but was simply enthralled by the term and the inference behind it when reading a recent repost from Orwelliana. I could have just reposted the article once again, for it itself is quite good, focusing mainly on this idea in the context of Charlie Hebdo, but I suppose I simply wanted to ruminate on the rather profound implications of just how much “coincidence theory” is actually promoted and preferred to such an overwhelming degree.

Lots of people have already put forth a good deal of thought-provoking content dealing with this, and I suppose I might just put together a little collage of sorts here centering around the “Coincidence Theory” theme.

glass_pyramidDave Hodges has a rather pithy but intriguing article called “Conspiracy Theorists vs. Coincidence Theorists” in in which he elucidates nine examples of “coincidences” which beleaguer the mind…

All the way back in 2004, Jeff Wells wrote a piece called “The Coincidence Theorist’s Guide to 9/11”, an absolutely fantastic compilation of factoids and links surrounding, of course, the litany of bizarre “coincidences” attached to 9/11.

Much more recently Bernie Suarez wrote “How Coincidence Theorists (Non-Conspiracy) Are Playing Key Role In Destruction Of America”, which does a fairly nice job of describing how the system is undergirded by a basic mentality whereby: “They believe that politicians, government bodies, agencies, and committees accept the end results of daily political 6849817403_1f5a563739events as all due to happenstance. They believe chaos and spoof coincidence is the norm…”

Another fascinating little tidbit I came across whilst searching for “conspiracy-or-coincidence-related stuff”, was the story of the “Deadly Double Dice Game“, which was advertised for in the New Yorker a few weeks before the attack on Pearl Harbor, bearing all kinds of rather telling occult symbolism and numerology that seems to predict the attack.

Also, these two vids seemed worthy of inclusion on this topic. The first is “9/11 Coincidence Theory”, an excerpt from a speech by David Ray Griffin:
And here is Alan Watt on Conspiracy vs. Coincidence Theory:

(I certainly don’t necessarily agree with every little thing the guy has to say, but I think he at least creates plenty of decent conversation-kickstarters, and really the last minute of the video is the best part)
