So, on Tuesday, Chicago rocked the country in a possible attempt to rebrand itself. It elected a Republican mayor for the first time in almost 90 years. The corrupt Democratic political machine was in tatters having gotten only 26% of the vote.

In the past 100 years, Chicago has been home to the Mafia, the radical Weather Underground movement of the 1960s and the most corrupt political party in the country, sometimes referred to as the Daley Machine.  In addition, Chicago can boast that, in the University of Chicago, it has the most radical university in the country. Historically, the University of Chicago has been the incubator for various subversives, including what would later become the Neo-con political movement.  Yes, those neo-cons.

The fascinating part of this mayoral race is how a relative unknown became a landslide winner.  I would refer to it as the Jussie Smollett Effect.  You know, that Jussie Smollett. The Jussie Smollett who has ties to the corrupt Chicago political machine.  The Jussie Smollett who had all the charges against him dropped suspiciously by said corrupt politicians.

Apparently, Chicagoans had finally had enough. Enough of the murders, enough of the payoffs, enough of Jussie Smollett and…well, just plain enough.  They expressed their displeasure at the ballot box and voted out the Daley Machine.

It was one Arenda Troutman, a corrupt former Chicago politician herself, who famously declared this about Chicago politics, “Most aldermen, most politicians are hos,” ‘Nuff said. Only time will tell, however, if Chicago has shaken off its ghosts of the past.

On the website of a Lyndon LaRouche PAC is an interesting take on the staged Russia-collusion coup of the American government.  The Russia-collusion investigation, of course, has recently ended with the report of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller which I covered in an earlier post.

In the article, LaRouche leaves out most of the details of the coup but notes that “… the City of London wants the U.S. to go to war with Russia and China rather than change their failed post-World War II order, an economic and strategic order which has devastated both our country and much of the world.” By the City of London, LaRouche is referring the City of London Corporation which controls the world’s financial system.  LaRouche adds, “It is the successor of the British East India Company, that vehicle for the world’s oligarchs, against which the American Revolution was fought.”

Note: There is a tie-in to what LaRouche is saying about outside forces wanting the U.S. to go to war with China or Russia and what I have previously referred to as the Tulsi Gabbard Effect.  That is, the establishment is not going to back any candidates running for president in the 2020 election that do not support endless wars.  That’s why there was such a “hue and cry” from both politicians and the media when Trump announced the pullout of U.S. troops from Syria. That, in effect, was the establishment pushing back on the troop withdrawal.

Interestingly enough, LaRouche fingers the British for being the source of the coup plotting.  By British, however, you need to know that LaRouche is referring to members of the British government who owe their allegiance to the City of London (rather than to England), just as members of the American government do. Although, LaRouche doesn’t mention it, there is also a hierarchy above the City of London. The rabbit hole is very deep and you aren’t even supposed to know that there is a rabbit hole, but of course…now you know.

 

Epilogue

Lyndon LaRouche is a man with a colorful history.  He ran for president eight times, mostly as a Democrat. LaRouche is a dangerous man, so to speak.  He understands the politics inside the Beltway and, being an outsider, isn’t afraid to go up against the establishment.

There is a question about the universe which no one seems to ask.  That is, if the universe is conscious, then which came first, the universe or the consciousness? The answer must be that the consciousness came first, but boy does that open up Pandora’s Box.

So, we have all these existing theories above the universe, from the Big Bang to black holes with talk about strange stuff like dark matter and dark energy.  Then, we have the dilemma of why these scientific theories can’t explain the universe or can’t even explain rather elementary things like, say, gravity or why some scientific theories disagree with other scientific theories. So many theories with literally no real answers.

Here’s the thing about consciousness, though.  Consciousness does not require Big Bangs or black holes or any of the other existing scientific theories for that matter. While consciousness does not explain what we are doing here, it does explain what the universe is doing here.  The universe is here because consciousness created it.

So, exactly where does that lead us?

For one thing, it would be impossible to develop a scientific theory that explains everything unless you have experienced everything (and understand it).  So, complete understanding of all that is …is an impossibility. Pure science is pretty much at a dead end anyway as John Horgan discusses in his book The End of Science.  Therefore, all the exotic theories discussed in science today are simply an attempt to stay relevant…which is pretty much impossible under the circumstances.

For another thing, it means that we are not a physical life form. There are, then, only a few possibilities of what we are. We could be part of a computer program which is simulating life or we could be the consciousness that is, in effect, creating all life (including, perhaps, a simulation) or we could be part of a unified field of consciousness which includes everything in  the universe.  If we are part of a computer simulation, there still has to be a higher level of consciousness (even, maybe ourselves in another form) that is creating the simulation.  In any event, consciousness has to be the source of reality.

Bottom line: Consciousness is the creator of all that is and therefore, all that is… is consciousness.

Of course, there is no way to exactly define what consciousness is.  Suffice it to say, though, that consciousness is the creative force in, and of, the universe.  For some, perhaps that’s enough; for others like me…..

 

“Life is the most mysterious of all the wonders of creation because atoms have been assembled in such a way so that they can ponder their own existence.” – Martin Rees, astrophysicist

P.S. “Ponder” you understand, meaning that the universe is self-aware and intelligent.

 

 

 

An interesting video on YouTube is about the mysteries of the universe – see link below.  Here’s their top ten list of mysteries:

  • What exactly is gravity?
  • Is the universe infinite?
  • Why does The Double-Slit Experiment work?
  • Will the universe someday cease to exist?
  • What set off The Big Bang?
  • How does spooky action (quantum entanglement) work?
  • Are there more than the three dimensions in our universe?
  • Is time travel possible?
  • Will the universe become invisible?
  • Could other universes exist?

The problem with science speculating on such subjects is that pure science is based on observation and measurement. The questions above are mostly theoretical in nature and while interesting to discuss are beyond the scope of science because they relate to matters which cannot be observed or measured.  Not now and not ever.

As a result, what passes for science today is theories, in essence formulae written on a chalkboard probably by some theoretical physicist.  Those theories are confined to existing scientific thinking on the subject. While the theories will no doubt evolve over time, they will continue to be nothing more than theories.

However, since I do not have a scientific background it is much easier for me to think outside the box, so to speak. So, here’s my ideas on some of these questions.

  • We obviously don’t know if the universe is infinite. The better question, however, is what is the universe?  Does it exist at all or is it just an illusion?
  • Why does the Double-Slit experiment work? Well, why not? Obviously, we have a problem with this because we don’t understand the laws of the universe. So, again, we’re asking the wrong question.
  • Will the universe cease to exist? Well, I suppose that depends on how you define the universe and how you define life. After all, Einstein said that energy can not be either created or destroyed. If you can’t destroy energy, then the universe could possibly cease to exist in its present form, but the energy would still be there.  The energy would not cease to exist. However, Einstein’s statement that energy cannot be created is incomplete, at best.  Creation (of energy) happens all the time in ways that we can’t understand. For example, the great void of space is not a void at all.
  • Is time travel possible. Of course, why not? Keep in mind, though, that time is an illusion so it’s not so much that you would travel through time but that you would create a timeline that you would be an observer in. This would not be unlike how you would edit a movie.

From some of the other questions, one can infer that scientists realize that things exist beyond, or outside of, our universe.  Of course, the answer is that life does exist outside of our observable universe.  Seeing as how our field of observation is so limited, however, it is problematic as to how we will ever observe the things that are necessary to answer those questions.

It is not an accident that we are so limited.  Someone, or something, is denying us access to a complete picture of creation.  Without that complete picture, our laws of the universe are, relatively speaking, meaningless. In any event, scientists will no doubt endeavor to try to answer the unanswerable without even addressing the big picture. This is painfully obvious in Dr. Michael Turner’s comment on the Big Bang: “If inflation is the dynamite behind the Big Bang, we’re still looking for the match.” Problem is: they should be looking for the matchmaker.  Only then, would the laws of the universe make any sense.

I wonder if the LGBT community realizes the ramifications of Sharia Law.  That is, homosexuals are executed under Sharia Law in most Muslim countries. Here’s the rundown.

Brunei, a predominately Muslim country in Southeast Asia, recently converted to Sharia Law and will now be executing gays. Their crime – homosexuality.  Of course, Brunei is not alone as homosexuality is punishable by death in most Muslim counties including Afghanistan, Iran, Mauritania, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen.  Of course, Sharia Law applies to all people in those countries whether they are Muslims or not.

In this country, the problem is that Sharia Law is incompatible with American law, American culture and American values.  For example, under Sharia Law, women are treated as possessions and it’s allowable to rape non-Muslim women (see what’s happening all across Europe, for example), or even kill them in the case of “honor killings” …and, of course, there’s the LGBT issue.

So, as Islam becomes more prevalent in this country, it’s inevitable that some Americans, and especially LGBT, will become increasingly threatened by the lack of assimilation on behalf of Muslims.  After all, while Muslims may feel perfectly comfortable under Sharia Law, many Americans will not.

 

Global warming was supposed to be bad for the planet, but I’m here to tell you that global cooling is so much worse.  All the cold weather this past winter produced record snowfalls, especially across the Midwest.  When spring came, the snow melted and now we have an apocalypse of flooding.  The following article refers to it as “an agricultural disaster without equal in modern American history.”– see link https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2019-03-30/midwest-apocalypse-satellite-data-show-least-1-million-acres-us-farmland-devastated

Get ready for a disaster at the supermarket.

Of course, weather runs in cycles and we know from past cold weather eras, like the late 17thcentury, that cold weather can wreak havoc on the planting and harvesting of crops.  Never mind the loss of animal life which we are experiencing in record numbers across the Midwest and in Australia in particular.

The real key to understanding the whole global warming/cooling debate is this. Food can’t be grown when it’s cold but can when it’s warm.  If temperatures got real hot and the major ice floes melt and sea levels rise, that would be a problem for populations along coastlines.  However, the planet would survive.

Note: We all wouldn’t perish in 12 years even if CO2 levels increased dramatically. That is, CO2 is good the planet, not bad. It’s a scientific fact that we need to have CO2, and lots of it, to exist on this planet despite what Al Gore thinks.

However, with cooling, things could get really bad especially in the Northern Hemisphere. There’s a reason why the Northern Hemisphere was not populated during some ancient periods (ice ages). To survive, the northern populations, which constitute 90% of the world population, would all have to move way south.  Good luck with seven billion people trying to survive on one-third of the planet’s land mass and with very little in the way of food production because food is primarily grown in the Northern Hemisphere.

Here’s the rub.  The media isn’t reporting on the implications of our weather problems.  That’s because they might have to explain why cold weather is far worse for us than warm weather.  Fancy that. However, when people wake up to the reality of major increases in food prices and/or empty shelves in the supermarket, there will be hell to pay. Better get the parkas out as the cold weather isn’t likely to end anytime soon.

 

Epilogue

A study published in Nature Climate Change looked at the four major warming periods of the last 5,000 years. Of the four, the coolest one was for the period recently ended in 1980. in fact, the Minoan warm period approximately 3,500 years ago was 4°C warmer than today. None of the four warm periods were associated with failing ecosystems despite being warmer than the 20th century.  So much for the threat of global warming.

 

What are you?  Who are you? What’s your purpose in life? Everybody wants to know.  Well, here’s a few clues.

There are a few recurring mathematic/geometric patterns in Nature. For example:

  • Pi – The ratio of a circle’s circumference to its diameter (3.14159265359…)
  • Golden Ratio – An irrational number found by dividing a line into two parts so that the longer part divided by the smaller part is also equal to the whole length divided by the longer part (1.6180339887….).
  • Fibonacci sequence – A sequence where each number is the sum of the two preceding ones. It is pervasive throughout nature, art, music, biology, and other disciplines.

Pi and the Golden Ratio are significant because they produce a result that cannot be exactly calculated (at least not in this universe).  That is, they are infinite numbers in a finite universe.  They indicate that something exists outside of this universe.  Further, all three show that our universe has intelligent design.

Physicist James Gates Jr. has stated that scientific theories which describe the fundamental nature of the universe contain embedded computer codes. Gates was talking about the 1s and 0s found in the software of modern computers. Think programming.  Again, intelligent design.

Einstein believed that time was an illusion; that the past, present and future exist simultaneously. This kind of “reality” can only be found in video games or movies. Many movies/TV shows were made with a message to the viewer about the true nature of reality, including The Matrix, The Truman Show, Blade Runner and Westworld.

 

The Game of Life

So, let’s start playing the game of life. First, what’s the purpose of life?  I would suggest that the purpose is to exit the game. Think of Tron.

Why Tron?  Well, in Tron the main character exists outside the game and subsequently becomes trapped inside the game, and then has to find his way out again.  So, the object of the game is to find the door, to find the exit from the game of life. Why? Well, because the programmers of the game require it. Remember, intelligent design.

What is reality like inside the game? So, if our reality is a video game/simulation what can we deduce about it? First of all, this is not a material world. The universe simply consists of information. It’s digital. For those of you who argue over a flat earth, the earth is neither round or flat, it’s holographic.

So, how do we experience this reality? Actually, in our mind. Everything is a function of consciousness. Even Einstein and Planck realized that.  Our physical bodies have sensory equipment that send information about the nature of our surroundings to the brain where that information is “translated” giving us an “interpretation” of reality. The interpretation of reality, based on sight, does not take place outside of our bodies but rather in the brain where there is no light whatsoever. As for thinking, science has demonstrated that the vast majority of thinking is done by our subconscious mind without our awareness. These apparently are the rules of the video game. When you play the game of life, you operate based on your “perception of reality.” Of course, you have no idea that you are inside of a video game.  All you have to go is your perceptions to go on.

So, where is the door? Here’s another clue. Remember, perception is everything. Think of yourself as being the game itself, instead of being trapped inside. Games actually can be quite interesting when you know the rules…and are aware that it’s actually a game.

 

“I’m trying to free your mind, Neo. But I can only show you the door. You’re the one that has to walk through it.” – from the movie The Matrix

 

Saving The Planet

03/28/2019

 

I’m having pizza tonight at the local pizza place and exchanging pleasantries with the owner. A really nice guy.  Very engaging sort.

He’s bemoaning the fact that the world is going down the tubes, times are harder with little hope for the future. He says that he thinks that we need to have a war to save the country. Well, okay wars do sometimes solve certain problems, but for every winner there has to be at least one loser, if not more. So, on a global scale that doesn’t solve anything.  Just more endless wars.

Being the outspoken person that I am, I say that there are really only two events that can truly save the planet.  One possibility is extraterrestrials and the other would be the next step on Nature’s scale of human evolution.  Why these two? Well, extraterrestrials (e.g. a type II Kardashev civilization) if they exist and if they are friendly and if they want to help (I know, it’s a lot of ifs) by definition would have to be a more advanced civilization than the human species, so perhaps we could learn something from them.

Evolution is the wild card in all of this. We know from looking at the geology of the Earth that the planet has gone through many evolutionary cycles, some of which happened almost overnight in evolutionary terms.  Why not a move by humans out of our three-dimensional universe into something whose energy vibrates at a higher rate.  We know, for example, that the Schumann Resonance (the heartbeat of the planet) has recently been skyrocketing up out of sight.  What if the increase in the vibrational rate of the energy in the universe turns the human species into a higher life form? I said what if.

Pooh, pooh these possibilities all you want. Unless you come up with a better idea, I’m the boss.  At least, I agree with AOC on something.

 

 

So, supposedly it’s getting warm at the Arctic Circle and the ice is melting.  I said supposedly.  Apparently, it ain’t so in Greenland.

A new NASA study published in Nature Geoscience has found that the biggest glacier in Greenland has been growing, instead of shrinking, since 2016, and growing rapidly at that. NASA has been using satellite data to monitor ice accumulation all over the world. For example, NASA’s website has a study of Antarctic ice accumulation that shows that Antarctica has actually been gaining ice. This challenges the conclusions of other previous studies, including the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC), which have said that Antarctica is losing ice.

As for the weather, somehow it’s supposedly warm in the Arctic Circle but cold further south.  The cold weather coming into North America, for example, is supposedly a by-product of the warm weather in the Arctic Circle. Of course, that’s completely counterintuitive.  To try and explain it, a new term, polar vortex, has been coined. I said to try and explain it.

In any event, NASA says that the whole planet can expect a lot more cold weather, really cold. The headline in NewsPunch reads, “Scientists Find Earth is Cooling, Not Warming; NASA Predicts Mini-Ice Age.” So, it turns out that we’re going to need all the greenhouse gases that we can get to help offset the global cooling! Another NASA climatologist, Dr. Kate Marvel, was interviewed recently and said,I’m not sure that climate change is an immediate threat to human existence.”  Obviously, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez hasn’t convinced Dr. Marvel that we’re all going to die in twelve years.

 

Epilogue

Then, there’s the United Nations who are at the forefront of the global warming initiative. Basically what they have been doing is pedaling a political agenda as science consensus. However, Dr. Nils-Axel Marner who worked for the IPCC says that, “The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is misleading humanity about climate change and sea levels…In fact, it is more likely that sea levels will decline, not rise.” How’s that for a ringing endorsement!

 

 

“The sun is entering one of the deepest Solar Minima of the Space Age…The lack of sunspots on our sun could bring about record cold temperatures, and perhaps even a mini ice age.” – Dr. Tony Phillips, NASA

 

 

 

So, Mueller finally turned in his report and the backpedaling is happening fast and furious all over town (inside the Beltway).  However, the bigger story is that of the real collusion with the Russian government. It’s a story that parts of are already out in the public but it is not being fully covered (yet) by the media.

You see, a gentleman by the name of Christopher Steele testified in a London court on a related matter.  You should get use to hearing Christopher Steele’s name because it’s likely to come up a lot in the near future. Steele testified that he was hired with regards to “the potential impact of Russian involvement on the legal validity of the outcome of the 2016 U.S. Presidential election” (as reported by the Washington Times) and that based on his report (which has since been referred to as the Steele Dossier) “…parties such as the Democratic National Committee and HFACC Inc. (also known as ‘Hillary for America’) could consider steps they would be legally entitled to take to challenge the validity of the outcome of that election.”  Steele was specifically tasked with uncovering evidence “on the Trump campaign conspiring with Moscow on election interference.” So, Steele, a former British spy, was hired by Hillary Clinton in an unprecedented attempt to overturn the results of a presidential election.  All this with the apparent cooperation of certain members of the Russian government.

Here’s the salient points that you need to know about the Steele Dossier (excerpts from The Federalist):

  • Christopher Steele was hired a law firm on behalf of the DNC and Hillary Clinton’s Reelection Campaign.
  • The sources for the Steele Dossier were senior Russian officials.
  • The Steele Dossier was used as a basis of illegal wiretaps on American citizens.
  • The primary focus of the Mueller investigation was the widely discredited Steele Dossier.

In retrospect, we now know the story behind the story primarily because of all the testimony in front of the House Oversight and Judicial Committees. It was Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein that recommended that James Comey be fired as head of the FBI and it was the very same Rod Rosentein who then hired special prosecutor Robert Mueller. Much of the special counsel appointment was based on the false claim that Trump fired Comey to end the Russia investigation. Then, Rosenstein conspired with other individuals (Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok et al) to overthrow the Trump presidency.  Meanwhile, the FBI was using the fake Steele Dossier to illegally get FISA warrants to spy on the Trump campaign. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. The rabbit hole is deep and the list of characters is long.  It features people like Donna Brazille, John Podesta and Sen.John McCain… and strangely enough even Seth Rich.

The full story is not for the faint of heart and many of the sordid details, such as Pizzagate, probably will never be revealed to the public. Maybe, that’s how it should be as the American people love anything that conforms with their own belief systems but can’t really handle the truth (cognitive dissonance). So, despite the end of the Mueller investigation, the topic of Russia collusion isn’t dead, rather it’s just getting started.
