‘If the dark-siders are so cock-sure about installing their ‘New World Order’ – they may be in for a bit of a shock – for we are sure to trump them with our ‘Great World to Come’.
These are the battle lines of the 21st century – and engagement is already well under way.
The birthing of The World to Come involves a long maturation period – and, right now, we are pregnant with expectation. The disparate energetic pixels of a great vision are coalescing towards each other; and as they do, the picture is starting to take on a discernible shape and form. It is, if you like, coming into focus.
Millions of shimmering complimentary thought patterns are forming this emerging picture; weaving and dancing their way into a glittering hologram of divine exigence. And yes, it is we who are its drivers – its creators.’
‘Public services are becoming increasingly algorithmic, a reality that has spawned hyperbolic comparisons to RoboCop and Minority Report, enforcement droids and pre-cogs. But the future of high-tech policymaking looks less like science fiction and more like Google’s PageRank algorithm.
For example, according to the Chicago Tribune, Robert McDaniel, a 22-year-old Chicago resident, was surprised when police commander Barbara West showed up at his West Side home in 2013 to warn “the most dangerous gangbangers” to stop their violent ways.
McDaniel, who had a misdemeanor conviction and several arrests on a variety of offenses—drug possession, gambling, domestic violence—had made Chicago’s now-notorious “heat list” of the 420 people most likely to be involved in violent crime sometime in the future. The list is the result of a proprietary predictive policing algorithm that likely crunches numbers on parole status, arrests, social networks, and proximity to violent crime.’
‘Two wrongs can make a right, at least in the world of visual perception and motor functioning, according to two University of Oregon brain scientists.
Much of what we take for granted about our inner lives, from visual perception to memories, is little more than an elaborate construct of the mind.
The human visual system analyzes the interactions between visible electromagnetic waves and the objects in our environment, extracts information about the world from them, and makes visual perception possible. Visual perception is considered a dynamic process that goes far beyond simply replicating the visual information provided by the retina.’
‘In 2010, Amber was a high school senior from a small farm town in Connecticut, when a small women’s college in Massachusetts offered her a generous financial aid package. She had applied to six schools, including a state institution, but had been wooed by the small women’s college in Massachusetts after visiting its campus and being offered a financial aid package consisting mostly of loans and a few grants.
The total cost of her tuition and room and board for her freshman year, $26,000, was just $5,000 more than she would have paid had she gone to a state school, so she went with the more prestigious women’s college because, in large part, it had a “better name.”
After attending the New England school for a year and a half, she had to withdraw in 2011 to deal with health issues. When Amber returned in 2012 and received her revised financial aid package, she was shocked to see that her aid was cut in half.’
‘Waking up to the realities presented before us and even more importantly what they imply is a very profound and personal experience. Once we become aware we are living in a world that’s been deliberately fabricated in ways we never would have imagined and that even our own true nature is anything but what we’ve been told, there’s no turning back.
It may appear to be a lonely path at first, but we are by no means alone in this awakening. It is happening in all walks of life. Whether a banker or corporate employee wakes up to the scam being perpetrated on humanity and pulls out of the matrix, or a normal taxpaying worker realizes they’re contributing to a military industrial machine.’
‘I am inspired by the very definition of self-reliance: to be reliant on one’s own capabilities, judgment, or resources. Ultimately, it is the epitome of independence and lays the groundwork of what we are all striving for – to live a life based on our personal principles and beliefs.
It is a concept rooted in the groundwork that made America great. Being dependent on our own capabilities and resources helped create a strong, plentiful country for so long. That said, the existing country as it is now is entirely different than when it began.’
‘What happens to us when we die? It’s a question that has exercised humanity’s finest minds since those humans have been around to have them – and has been recently the subject of a number of groundbreaking scientific studies.’
