It is like a scary dream or an altered reality. The comforts our parents and fore fathers laid their hearts upon are vanishing like dwindling clouds in a dimming sky
Belief systems ,cultural traditions ,old recipes and a close ensemble of community is lost in an avalanche of acceleration
HG Wells wrote in The Mind At The End Of Its Tether
“we see not genius or creativity ,before us ,not music which stirs the heart and intimacy to which the closeness of family relies but a scarceness of human resources and viability.
The closeness of community and a sense of value in things is lost as the old ways dissipate like morning dew on the stamens of flowers”
Our bees are dying and our insects are being lost as millions of chemical toxins cloud our world
Ray Kurzweil, Google’s Director of Engineering, is a well-known futurist with a track record for accurate predictions. Recently at the multi conglomerate SCSW CONFERENCE in Austin Texas he predicted that technological singularity will happen sometime in the next 30 years.
We are beconing a brave new world where the essential cultural identity of nations and cities are lost to homogeneity, as globalisation fed by the global net, and news media controlled by a handful of corporations, plus the never -ending consumer packages in mega stores fed by transnational companies denies our very freedom
As Kurzweil says, Artificial Intelligence gives us the chance to become trans humans where in a virtual reality game we can even exchange our sexuality
Add to this the fact that the very DNA of our planet is being modified to prepare GMO food for genetically modified enhanced humans--- we can see why Stephen Hawkins was so concerned that a not so distant future may see not only thousands of people displaced from work by robots, but artificial intelligence taking over from Homo Sapiens
So how much time have we left in this surrealistic world devoid of values and ethics, and even conscience?
Kurzweil says that Artificial intelligence will solve our global problems re mass production, agriculture, and transportation, as we reach singularities in life extension and health. Indeed, he predicts a healthy life and healthy immune systems for all the population enhanced by somatic nano bots and transhumanism as we more and more fuse with artificial brains, becoming a new breed of cyborgs.
This is called the longevity escape factor with working life extended beyond 65 and 70.
In the mean-time, our lives are said to be enriched by virtual reality and holographic images with ourselves working in our own chosen locations
According to the brains behind Google, and Apple, and the Singularity University we have now taken evolution into our own hands!
And yet, our millennials are depressed and disoriented by the competitive race for jobs and money.
This is the only status they can dream of!!!
Each mother's umbilical cord contains hundreds of toxic chemicals which can create diseases handed down from generation to generation
And the scale of autism and depression in our global society is enormous.
Is this because we exist in a society based on economic transactions, where social and true human interaction is severely compromised by iPhones, Facebook, and selfies?
It is said that Religion is almost dead!!
Our parents and ancestors loved the implicit values in their respective religious holidays and rituals, which served as a unifying focus for community togetherness.
And yet it seems in 29 years’ time religion will be dead.
The notion that good living conditions are associated with a decline in religious belief, importance of religion, church attendance, and so forth, is supported by a mountain of evidence assembled by Pippa Norris and Ronald Inglehart in their book, Sacred and Secular -, as well as numerous more recent works
Yet this goes against our humanistic tendencies, and the idiosyncrasy and individuality of the human condition.
It is not so much religion, as the fact that our inner world is being laid waste reflecting the possible demise of our outer world with climate change, pollution , loss of biodiversity , loss of resources, and over population.
In the United States, the 400 richest individuals now own more wealth than the bottom 64 percent of the population, and the three richest own more wealth than the bottom 50 percent, while pervasive poverty means one in five households have zero or negative net worth.
In a study sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Centre, and headed by the National Science Foundation's Safa Motesharrei, they found that advanced, complex and powerful societies are susceptible to collapse."
"Collapse can be avoided, and population can reach a steady state at the maximum carrying capacity, if the rate of depletion of nature is reduced to a sustainable level, and if resources are distributed equitably," reads the report.
When too much wealth is in too few hands it creates a critical situation "which history has diversely met by legislation redistributing wealth or by revolution distributing poverty", wrote the husband and wife historians Will and Ariel Durant in their survey of Western civilisation, The Lessons of History.
We are indeed at a tipping point.
A big proportion of American millennials do not trust society,and are suffering from low esteem, and are coping with a competitive fractured society where money as their key attention at work is paramount.
Recent world politics has given an indicator that the situation is approaching a critical situation as regards inequity.
Outbreaks of destructive populism such as Donald Trump's takeover of the US Republican party or UKIP's success in taking Britain out of the European Union are some of the rich world's early warnings that inequality has gone too far.
Central to restoring trust is the problem of flagrant tax evasion. The biggest economies, through the G20, have embraced the OECD's policy program to address "base erosion and profit shifting", inelegantly known as BEPS, and many governments are working towards fixing their leaky tax systems, cheered on by Oxfam and others.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), says that 11 percent of American children, ages 4 to 17 have an attention disorder. Often, they are given Adderall which is another name for amphetamine.
Add to this bucket list is the US Administration’s 2017 budget request for modernisation of their nuclear armaments, which will cost $1.2 trillion dollars over the 2017–2046 period:
War is better than peace as it is more profitable.
Illness is better than health because it is more profitable.
According to a 2010 study, an estimated 20 percent of children are misdiagnosed with ADHD.- Journal Health Economics- and the drugs used are hard core drugs with severe side effects.
Big Pharma has an enormous grasp on people’s lives where toxicity from drugs and vaccines is overwhelming.
The fact is that Medical error is the third leading cause of death in the US -BMJ 2016; 353 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.i2139 (Published 03 May 2016) behind only heart disease and cancer
It is interesting to know that 50% of people over 85 have dementia, and people over 65 are on as many as 12 drugs in a polypharmacy which also contributes to cognitive defect.
Our population is motivated by consumerism and dumbed down by toxins in food and drugs and trivialised by a sensationalist biased media, where good news and false news can no longer be discriminated. They are lost in social media and selfies, unable to see the big picture or speak out.
In November 2017 over 15,000 scientists hailing from more than 180 countries -issued a -warning to humanity:
“Time is running out" to stop business as usual, as threats from rising greenhouse gases to biodiversity loss are pushing the biosphere to the brink
The first 1992 plea, which said Earth was on track to be "irretrievably mutilated" baring "fundamental change,", was largely unheeded.
They said the planet would be mutilated unless immediate action was taken
And what have the governments of the world and the UN done?
The new statement—a "Second Notice" to humanity—showed that key environmental threats that demanded urgent attention a quarter of a century ago are even worse now.
Among the "especially troubling" trends, they stated, are rising greenhouse gas emissions, deforestation, agricultural production, and the sixth mass extinction event underway.
Taking a numerical look at how some of the threats have grown since 1992, the scientists note that there's been a 26.1 percent loss in fresh water available per capita; a 75.3 percent increase in the number of "dead zones"; a 62.1 percent increase in CO2 emissions per year; and 35.5 percent rise in the human population.
“By failing to adequately limit population growth, reassess the role of an economy rooted in growth, reduce greenhouse gases, incentivize renewable energy, protect habitat, restore ecosystems, curb pollution, halt defaunation, and constrain invasive alien species, humanity is not taking the urgent steps needed to safeguard our imperilled biosphere," they write.
Among the steps that could be taken to prevent catastrophe are promoting plant-based diets; reducing wealth inequality, stopping conversions of forests and grasslands; government interventions to rein in biodiversity loss via poaching and illicit trade; and "massively adopting renewable energy sources" while phasing out fossil fuel subsidies.
Taking such actions, they conclude, are necessary to avert "widespread misery and catastrophic biodiversity loss."
Where are our inner perceptions and inner values and truths which can enlighten us to our true selves before a radical materialistic positivistic science aligned only to profit making and entrepreneurship takes us over into a brave new world?
Perhaps the ancient gnostic scrolls and the esoteric teachings of all great spiritual traditions have something to say, not only about the sacredness of life, but also about our true nature as human Beings before we fall off the cliff into the valley of unknowing
These teachings are innate expressions of the human being in the act of becoming - the perfected human.
From an anatomical perspective as Dr Herbert Benson of Harvard has said the brain is hard wired for faith and belief
We have the neocortex and the front part of this -the prefrontal frontal cortex has, according to neuroscientist Dr Paul Mclean, the foundation of the higher intuitive aspects of humanness
Indeed, we might as well say that a person with a fully functioning brain integrated with his/ her heart and gut, is ripe for the development of what Dr Daniel Amen called eternal values.
In the book Jump Time , - Jean Houston believes that humans are entering a critical stage of rapid change. (The human potential movement says that people only use a small percentage of their positive potential, which can be unlocked by different means).
She sees a new human being capable of ultimate control of their emotions and feelings, and capable of self healing, and also youthing.
In the same ilk is Barbara Marx Hubbard, who sees herself as a midwife for humanity birthing the human universalis.
She says that the universal human is a name for the next stage of human evolution. It may eventually become our name for the new species that is now emerging from within so many of us.
She says that during these transition times it is important to stabilize our consciousness as universal humans by engaging in authentic relationship with others of similar intent in a collective field of resonance that can support our conscious evolution.
However, what is noticeable about all these new gurus and spiritual lLeaders is that they make a ton of money, but do not see the real challenges we face as they do not address the nexus of geopolitical and cultural factors facing us, or the integrating multiple solutions.
Let us look at the qualities of God expressed in the ancient gnostic teachings which are credited to go back thousands of years to other civilisations:
- God is perfection truth and goodness
- God is the treasury of life
- God can heal all human beings
- God represents the totality in that the material world is a tiny part of God’s Domaine
The totality of the Domaine is called the pleroma
The essence of oneness with the parent God is through thought as wisdom and love as feeling leading through angelic streams of life and light to the Domaine of the creator parent.
The Essenes saw the enlightened human as being awakened to the tree of life where the roots take their sustenance from Mother Earth, and the branches like antennae reach to the infinity of life and light in the universe.
If we see consciousness as the a causal focus and innate creativity of the universe, then light is the carrier of information.
The Essenes were asking us to nurture and show gratitude to our Mother Earth who nourishes our bodies as we stretch our arms out to the light of the creative parent, expressed as myriads of stars galaxies in the universe.
Although we become confused by the dogma of established religion —-hidden in these ancient truths are the very strands and warp and weft of meaning which express a completely different view and expression of the human interaction with the multiverse
THE ESSENE COMMUNIONS
Edmond Bordeaux Szekely
"And the truth shall bear witness of itself."
“See, oh Sons of Light, the branches of the Tree of Life reaching toward the kingdom of the Heavenly Father. And see the roots of the Tree of Life descending into the bosom of the Earthly Mother. And the Son of Man is raised to an eternal height and walks in the wonders of the plain; for only the Son of Man carries in his body the roots of the Tree of Life; the same roots that suckle from the bosom of the Earthly Mother; and only the Son of Man carries in his spirit the branches of the Tree of Life; the same branches that reach to the sky, even so to the kingdom of the Heavenly Father”
From a quantum Perspective we could almost say these mystics were quantum scientists.
What is expressed in poetic insight and intuition is of incalculable value for these ancient traditions and spiritual communications speak from the heart of the human soul
Make no Mistake that these communications handed down to humanity almost 2000 years ago as the gnostic and ESSENE scrolls express the epitome of the nature of consciousness.
As humans, we anthropomorphise and yet we classify primitive people on the lower levels in spiral dynamics as being animistic, as they create conscious realities in all of nature.
But we now know from the experiments of Tiller, and the writings of Ervin Lazslo and an understanding of quantum realities, that the mind creates and inspires reality.
Not only this, but the universe in its perfection is driven by life giving negentropic factors which illuminate the mind of the observer as much as the observer illuminates the universe.
I"Everything you need you already have. You are complete right now, you are a whole, total person, not an apprentice person on the way to someplace else."
-- Wayne Dyer
Predicts the end of humanity and the computerisation of God.
Historically, we humans don’t like change. We like waking up in the morning and knowing that that the world is the same as the night before.
That’s one reason why government institutions exist: to stabilize society.
But how will this change in 20 or 30 years? The nation-state is not as profound as it was Religion used to direct every aspect of your life, minute to minute. It’s still important in some ways, but it's much less important.
1-Nation-states are not isolated islands anymore.
So, we're already much more of a global community. The generation growing up today really feels like world citizens much more than ever before, because they're talking to people all over the world on face book and skype and other communication media.
National borders have become extremely porous, with ideas, people, capital and technology rapidly flowing between nations
2- We’ll hit longevity before we realize we’ve hit it [SPM1]
Scientists are continually extending the human lifespan, helping us cure heart disease, cancer, and eventually neurodegenerative disease. This will keep accelerating as technology improves. It is likely that in another 10 to 12 years, biotechnology is going to have taken over medicine,”[SPM2] and nanorobots will “basically finish the job of healing the immune system.,”
“Social Security will be destroyed,” the more abundance-minded will realize that extending a person’s productive earning life space from 65 to 75 or 85 years old would be a massive boom to the GDP.
3--. Technology will help us define and actualize human freedoms.
“I don’t think humans even have to be biological,” explained Ray. “I think humans are the species that changes who we are.”
At its base level, technology is the means by which we change our environment, and change ourselves. This will continue, even as the technologies themselves evolve.
“People say, ‘Well, do I really want to become part machine?’ You're not even going to notice it,” says Ray, “because it's going to be a sensible thing to do at each point.”
Kurzweil is saying that we are doing the right thing. Don’t worry / everything will be ok
Every problem can be resolved through artificial intelligence and nano technology.
The key to human intelligence is the neocortex and soon we will be downloading our brains onto the digital Cloud.
The problems of overpopulation will be solved as we create abundance with in vitro cloned meat and foods.
Peter Diamandis cofounder and executive chairman of Singularity University, says in 1970, 529 deaths were attributable to extreme poverty and famine per 100,000 humans. Today it's three out of 100,000!
What he does not say is that nearly 1/2 of the world's population — more than 3 billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. More than 1.3 billion live in extreme poverty — less than $1.25 a day. 1 billion children worldwide are living in poverty. According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty.
Kurweil says that Artificial Iintelligence will solve our global problems re mass production, agriculture and transportation as we reach singularities in life extension and health.
Indeed according to the brains behind Google and Apple and the Singularity University we have now taken evolution into our own hands![SPM3]
In the last century we have created over 80,000 chemicals and every year, four billion pounds of these toxins are released into our environment. Our air, soil, animals, plants, water, and our bodies are being contaminated. Our bodies are being poisoned by these carcinogenic, endocrine-disrupting, and gene damaging chemicals and they are being stored within our cells.
A fetus grows in a womb contaminated with as many as 287 foreign chemicals and the level of mercury in umbilical cord blood is 1.7 times higher than the level in the mother’s blood. Thousands of babies born each year are at risk for brain damage and learning difficulties due to the toxin exposure while in the womb. Do you think there could be a correlation with these facts and the ever-increasing numbers of Autism, ADD, and ADHD diagnosis in our children?
Everyday more and more people are being diagnosed with chronic health problems. Approximately 68 million people suffer from some form of heart disease, 25 million have diabetes, 1.5 million will die of cancer within the next year, 5-8% of the population suffers from a chronic, debilitating autoimmune disease, 57.7 million suffer from some mental disorder, and over 6 million are diagnosed with a neurological disease.
Alzheimer's has more than doubled since 1980, every week 200 people are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, diabetes has increased over 54% and the rate our children are being diagnosed with Autism, ADD and ADHD is alarming.
80000 toxic chemicals can contribute to numerous health problems including allergies, neurological illnesses, immune dysfunction, reproductive dysfunction, mood changes, asthma, autoimmunity, allergies, sexual dysfunction and dysregulation of glucose. Mercury, the most destructive of these toxins, can cause neurological, immunological, psychological and enzymatic issues. It can contribute or cause autism, Alzheimer’s, cancers, heart disease, autoimmune disease, endocrine problems as well as neurological and behavioral issues.
Ellen Langer, a Harvard psychologist, has stated “Social conditions may foster what may erroneously appear to be necessary consequences of ageing.,”
Through ground breaking experiments with elderly people, she found that ageing’s negative effects could be manipulated and even erased by psychological intervention.
She placed elderly people in a time warp. Representing environmental and social mMilieu and conditions 20 years ago in 1959.
Perry Como crooned on a vintage radio. Ed Sullivan welcomed guests on a black-and-white TV. Everything inside — including the books on the shelves and the magazines lying around — were designed to conjure 1959.
The men didn’t just reminisce about what things were like at that time (a control group did that). They were instructed to behave as if it were actually 1959, while the control group lived in a similar environment but didn’t act as if it were decades ago.
After two weeks in the group told to live as if it were actually 1959; a full 63% of them had better scores at the end of the experiment than they did at the beginning, compared to 44% in the control group. Four independent volunteers, who knew nothing about the study, looked at before-and-after photos of the men in the experimental group and perceived those in the “after” photos as an average of two years younger than those in the “before.”
To continue to field a nuclear force roughly the same size as it is today, the United States plans to modernize virtually every element of that force over the coming decades. CBO estimates that the most recent detailed plans for nuclear forces, which were incorporated in the Obama Administration’s 2017 budget request, would cost $1.2 trillion in 2017 dollars over the 2017–2046 period: more than $800 billion to operate and sustain (that is, incrementally upgrade) nuclear forces and about $400 billion to modernize them.
MEDICAL WEB SITES
Many of the world's major medical websites are now owned directly—or indirectly—by the pharmaceutical industry, although this is hidden from consumers searching for independent health advice.
WebMD, RxList, MedicineNet, and Medscape are the latest to forge ever-closer ties to the pharmaceutical industry after they were purchased by private investment firm KKR (Kohlberg, Kravis, Roberts & Co) and now the pharmaceutical industry have direct influence over the sites
For example, Medcscape has deleted all negative stories about vaccinations
WebMD's reach in the US is vast, and is one of the country's most influential health websites. It's visited by around 75 million consumers and 650,000 doctors every month.
KKR's Internet Brands division has day-to-day control of the recently-acquired sites. Its CEO, Bob Brisco, said: "WebMD and Medscape are the market leaders in online health with unparalleled reach to consumers and healthcare professionals"—and now they are even better placed to push the pharmaceutical line.
Stephen Hawking has said that A.I could be “'worst event in the history of our civilization”.'
- He urged creators of AI to "employ best practice and effective management."
- Hawking is among a number of voices including Elon Musk who have warned about the dangers of AI.
"Unless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilization. It brings dangers, like powerful autonomous weapons, or new ways for the few to oppress the many. It could bring great disruption to our economy."
The study was sponsored by NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center and headed by the National Science Foundation's Safa Motesharrei.
For those who think modern society is immune from the problems that brought down ancient civilizations, a "brief overview of collapses demonstrates [SPM4] not only the ubiquity of the phenomenon, but also the extent to which advanced, complex and powerful societies are susceptible to collapse," the study said.
So how do we save ourselves? "Collapse can be avoided, and population can reach a steady state at the maximum carrying capacity, if the rate of depletion of nature is reduced to a sustainable level, and if resources are distributed equitably," reads the report.
A big proportion of American millenials do not trust and are suffering from low esteem.
Coping with s competitive fractured society where money is the key attention at work is paramount
Whether ADD or not there is a huge reliance on Adderall and stimulant dugs at schools
At least 6-7 % of millennials are diagnosed with ADD
Add to this the increasing degree of depression we can see that the work competitive economic American mode of living is in fact destroying the younger generation and therefore America
In the United States, the 400 richest individuals now own more wealth than the bottom 64 percent of the population and the three richest own more wealth than the bottom 50 percent, while pervasive poverty means one in five households have zero or negative net worth.
Mind control occurs constantly from polypharmacy in old age homes to fluoridation of water to pharmaceutical drugs to iatrogenic medicine to media propaganda
Ai raises an even more dangerous spectrum
subject: Mk-ultra: the Cia's secret program to create assassins and super spies using young women
MK-ULTRA used tactics behind the scenes to manipulate global politics through the use of mind control
The essay Lifting the Veil, uses easily verified facts that prove the CIA and American government were willing to secretly program unsuspecting young woman in order to forward hidden global agendas. Yet our major media have sadly failed to give any incisive analysis of these highly unethical programs. Explore what is written here and verify the links given to prove that things are not always as they seem.
The essay Lifting the Veil, in. PEERS and WantToKnow.info from the online book Lifting the Veil, uses hundreds of footnotes with links to highly reliable sources which reveal countless political and economic manipulations carried out in secret worldwide by powerful, well-hidden groups for decades.
By educating ourselves and shining light into these shadows, we can create powerful change that will transform our lives and world for the better.
With best wishes for a transformed world,

RELIGION TO ATHEISM
The view that religious belief will give way to atheism is known as the secularization thesis. The basic idea is that as people become more affluent, they are less worried about lacking for basic necessities, or dying early from violence or disease. In other words, they are secure in their own existence. They do not feel the need to appeal to supernatural entities to calm their fears and insecurities.
The notion that good living conditions are associated with a decline in religious belief, importance of religion, church attendance, and so forth, is supported by a mountain of evidence assembled by Pippa Norris and Ronald Inglehart in their book, Sacred and Secular (1), as well as numerous more recent works (2)
We can be as sure of the relationship between material security and declining religious belief as we are of any other such connection in the social sciences. That does not prevent some serious scholars, like political scientist Eric Kaufmann (3), from making the opposite case that religious fundamentalists will outbreed the rest of us. Yet, noisy as they can be, such groups are tiny minorities of the global population and they will become even more marginalized as global prosperity increases and standards of living improve
The most obvious approach to estimating when the world will switch over to being majority atheist is based on economic growth.
This is logical because economic development is the key factor responsible for secularization. In deriving this estimate, I used the 9 most godless countries as my touchstone (excluding Estonia as a formerly communist country). The countries were Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United Kingdom. These 9 countries averaged out at the atheist transition with exactly half of the populations disbelieving in God according to Zuckerman's compilation of data on disbelief in God in around 2004. Their gross domestic product (GDP) averaged $29,822 compared to $10,855 for the average country in the world. How long will it take before the world economy has expanded sufficiently that the GDP of the average country has caught up to the average for the godless countries in 2004?
Is the loss of religious belief something to fear? Contrary to the claims of religious leaders, godless countries are highly moral nations with an unusual level of social trust, economic equality, low crime, and a high level of civic engagement (4). We could do with some of that.
Averaging across the two measures of atheism, the entire world population would cross the atheist threshold by about 2038 (average of 2035 for disbelief and 2041 for religiosity). Although 2038 may seem improbably fast, this requires only a shift of approximately 1 percent per year whether in religiosity or belief in God. Using the Human Development Index as a clock suggests an even earlier arrival for the atheist transition.
