Transformation to Transcendence

Technology - A Revolution of Evolution

“Learn to see; everything is connected.” - Leonardo da Vinci.

“We are all born geniuses; Society de-geniuses us.” - Buckminster (Bucky) Fuller.

We are entering the age of Quantum Computing. Already in operation, quantum computers process data anywhere from one thousand to one million times faster than today’s hardware. We will find our mistakes much faster now.

Quantum computing is a type of computing that uses quantum mechanics, a branch of physics that deals with the behavior of matter and energy at an exceedingly small scale, to perform operations on data. Unlike classical computers that use bits to represent information as either 0 or 1, quantum computers use quantum bits (qubits) which can exist in multiple states simultaneously, allowing them to perform certain computations much faster and more efficiently. This makes quantum computers particularly well-suited for solving certain types of problems, such as cryptography and simulations of quantum systems.

Quantum computers are elegant machines, smaller and requiring less energy than supercomputers. An IBM Quantum processor is a wafer not much bigger than the one found in a laptop. And a quantum hardware system is about the size of a car, made up mostly of cooling systems to keep the superconducting processor at its ultra-cold operational temperature.

A classical processor uses bits to perform its operations. A quantum computer uses qubits (CUE-bits) to run multidimensional quantum algorithms.


Your desktop computer uses a fan to get cold enough to work. Our quantum processors need to be very cold – about a hundredth of a degree above absolute zero. To achieve this, we use super-cooled superfluids to create superconductors.


At those ultra-low temperatures certain materials in our processors exhibit another important quantum mechanical effect: electrons move through them without resistance. This makes them "superconductors."

When electrons pass through superconductors they match up, forming "Cooper pairs." These pairs can carry a charge across barriers, or insulators, through a process known as quantum tunneling. Two superconductors placed on either side of an insulator form a Josephson junction.


Our quantum computers use Josephson junctions as superconducting qubits. By firing microwave photons at these qubits, we can control their behavior and get them to hold, change, and read out individual units of quantum information.


A qubit itself is not especially useful. But it can perform an important trick: placing the quantum information it holds into a state of superposition, which represents a combination of all configurations of the qubit. Groups of qubits in superposition can create complex, multidimensional computational spaces. Complex problems can be represented in new ways in these spaces.


Entanglement is a quantum mechanical effect that correlates the behavior of two separate things. When two qubits are entangled, changes to one qubit directly impact the other. Quantum algorithms leverage those relationships to find solutions to complex problems.

Software Intelligence

Second Coming

One of the anecdotes going around in the 1960s went as follows:

“Computer scientists from all over the world cooperated to gather all the existing information from all libraries (in every language) and download that knowledge into a computer network.

“Once finished, they began asking questions to test the veracity of the answers. Thousands of responses were verified to be accurate. Eventually, they asked a burning question: “Is there a God?”

“There is NOW!” came the reply.

Today’s Open AI and ChatGPT3 can access all available knowledge for reference by anyone – in any language. Truth can now be portrayed electronically. Because knowledge can be proven to be actual, knowledge bases can reject lies. Truth-based existence is coming soon.

Preparing children and grandchildren for the new paradigm includes understanding the following terms:

Finite state automation

Finite state automation, also known as finite state machine or finite automaton, is a mathematical model of computation. It is used to represent and automate tasks or processes that have a definite number of states and transitions between them. The machine can be in only one state at a time, and a transition from one state to another occurs only when a specified input or event occurs.

A finite state machine is comprised of a set of states, a set of inputs, a set of transitions between states, and a set of outputs. The transition from one state to another is triggered by a specific input, and the output of the machine is determined by the current state.

Finite state machines are used in a variety of applications, including computer science, electrical engineering, and linguistics. They can be used to model the behavior of systems ranging from simple switches to complex computer programs.

In computer science, finite state machines are often used in the design and implementation of algorithms, compilers, and lexical analyzers. They can also be used to model the behavior of protocols, network switches, and other communication systems.

Quantum computers are a type of computing system that use quantum mechanical phenomena, such as superposition and entanglement, to perform operations on data. Unlike classical computers that operate on bits, which can be either 0 or 1, quantum computers use qubits, which can be in both 0 and 1 states simultaneously. This allows quantum computers to perform certain calculations much faster than classical computers, particularly in areas such as cryptography, optimization, and simulation.


A qubit, short for quantum bit, is the basic unit of quantum information. Unlike classical bits, which can have only two values (0 or 1), qubits can exist in multiple states simultaneously, making them the building blocks of quantum computers. This property is known as quantum superposition.

In quantum computing, the state of a qubit can be described by a complex probability amplitude, which represents the probability that the qubit will be measured in a specific state (0 or 1). The state of a qubit can also be changed through quantum operations, such as rotations and reflections, which are performed using quantum gates.

One of the key advantages of qubits over classical bits is that they can be entangled, meaning that the state of one qubit is dependent on the state of another. This allows quantum computers to perform certain types of calculations much faster than classical computers.

However, qubits are also extremely sensitive to their environment and can be affected by any number of factors, such as temperature, electromagnetic interference, and other sources of noise. This makes the development of practical, large-scale quantum computers a significant challenge, as maintaining the coherence and stability of qubits is crucial for their correct operation.

Fuzzy logic

Fuzzy logic is a mathematical framework for dealing with uncertainty and imprecision in decision-making. It was first introduced by Lotfi Zadeh in 1965 to model the vagueness and ambiguity that often arises in real-world systems.

Fuzzy logic differs from classical (Boolean) logic, which only allows for binary decisions based on true or false values. In fuzzy logic, decisions can be made based on degrees of truth, represented as degrees of membership in fuzzy sets. For example, a statement such as "John is tall" can have different degrees of truth depending on the context, and in fuzzy logic, this uncertainty can be represented by a value between 0 and 1. Fuzzy logic is the “maybe” between yes and no.

Fuzzy logic is used in a variety of applications, including control systems, image processing, natural language processing, and artificial intelligence. It has been particularly successful in control systems, where it has been used to design controllers for a variety of processes, including heating and cooling systems, robots, and transportation systems.

In fuzzy logic, decisions are made based on the evaluation of fuzzy rules, which are statements that connect inputs to outputs based on the degree of truth of the inputs. Fuzzy rules can be combined to form complex systems that can make decisions based on multiple inputs and multiple criteria.

Fuzzy logic is a powerful tool for modeling uncertainty, and it has been used in a wide range of applications, from control systems to artificial intelligence. Its ability to handle imprecise and ambiguous information makes it a useful tool for solving real-world problems that are difficult to solve using classical methods.

Normalized knowledge

Normalized knowledge refers to knowledge that has been organized and structured in a systematic and consistent manner, so that it can be easily processed, retrieved, and used by computers and other information systems. The process of normalizing knowledge involves breaking down complex information into smaller, more manageable pieces, and organizing them in a standardized way, such as through the use of ontologies, taxonomies, or other structured representations.

The main goal of normalizing knowledge is to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of knowledge management and knowledge-based systems. By breaking down knowledge into smaller pieces and organizing it in a consistent way, it becomes easier to search, retrieve, and use the information, and to combine it with other information to form new knowledge.

Normalized knowledge also enables the development of knowledge-based systems that can reason, make decisions, and perform tasks based on the knowledge they have been trained on. For example, a knowledge-based system that has been trained on a normalized knowledge representation of a domain such as medicine can be used to diagnose diseases, recommend treatments, and provide other medical advice.

In summary, normalized knowledge is a crucial component of effective knowledge management and the development of knowledge-based systems. It allows for the efficient processing, retrieval, and use of information, and provides a basis for reasoning and decision-making in a wide range of applications.

Building the future

Scenario building is a method used to explore the possible future outcomes of a particular situation or decision by developing a range of plausible scenarios that may arise based on different assumptions, variables, and factors.

Scenario building involves identifying the key drivers and uncertainties that could impact the situation or decision, and then developing a range of scenarios that explore how these drivers and uncertainties could play out over time. These scenarios may be based on different assumptions, such as economic growth rates, political changes, or technological advancements.

Scenario building is often used in strategic planning, risk management, and foresight exercises to help decision-makers better understand the potential risks and opportunities associated with different outcomes. By exploring a range of scenarios, decision-makers can gain a more nuanced understanding of the risks and opportunities they may face in the future, and can develop strategies and plans that are better suited to a range of possible outcomes.

Scenario building can also help decision-makers to be more proactive in their approach to risk management, by enabling them to identify and plan for potential future risks and uncertainties, rather than simply reacting to them as they arise.

Deep Learning

Deep learning is a subfield of machine learning that involves training artificial neural networks with many layers to learn complex patterns and representations in data. Deep learning algorithms use a hierarchical approach to learning, where the input data is processed through multiple layers of nonlinear transformations, allowing the network to learn increasingly abstract and complex features. These learned features can then be used for a variety of tasks, such as classification, regression, and generation. Deep learning has achieved state-of-the-art performance in many areas, including computer vision, natural language processing, and speech recognition.


Ontology is a branch of philosophy that deals with the study of existence and being. In computer science, ontology refers to a formal specification of concepts, categories, and relationships within a particular domain, typically represented in a structured format using a standardized language. It provides a shared vocabulary that can be used to describe and reason about entities, their attributes, and their relationships in a particular domain, and facilitates interoperability and sharing of knowledge among different systems and applications.

It may be too late for us old fogeys to grasp the meaning of such a paradigm shift, but our grandchildren will make use of the truth to create a lifestyle accessible to all without damaging the planet and its inhabitants.

Software like ChatGPT technology is beginning to resemble Captain Picard’s onboard computer on the starship Enterprise. Soon, everyone will be able to create systems, applications, and programs by simply speaking objectives, like conversing with Siri or Alexa. We already do this as humans, but faulty judgment, prejudice, bias, and other bugs prevent accurate results for our endeavors. It would be difficult for anyone who voted for Trump to understand this post.

Intelligence is universal and contained in every manifestation of energy, even rocks. Artificial (fabricated) Intelligence is the human persona (ego). Computers have no emotional ego to deal with, ergo- no bias and preconceived notions. Human egos can be decent passengers but can be dangerous in the driver’s seat. Think politics for a moment.

Electronic knowledge bases can eliminate lies, false beliefs and emotional attachment to nonsensical ideas. The ego will release its control of our lives by confronting truth. Once we have accepted a truth we hadn't recognized prior, we can never return to the previous mental state. We may as well start singing “Imagine” now.

We are born with five physical senses (usually) to experience our worldly travels. These senses provide input to the brain for evaluation and action (or inaction.) Each sense is "tuned in" to a specific range of vibrations that allow it to communicate its findings to our inner being. If we allow the ego to make comparisons or judgments of those findings, we will suffer consequences. Only our intuition will "feel" the truth of the stimuli we experience.

Personality comes from the word "persona," which means mask or veil. Ego falls quite short in its ability to discern the connectivity of its observations because the senses provide only a tiny slice of what is there. Because of its stubborn insistence for seeing itself as separate and judgmental, it spoils the harmony and synchronicity of life itself.

We have a bicameral brain -- two chambers. In general terms, the left hemisphere receives energy waves in terms of frequency while the right interprets the same waves in terms of amplitude. Frequency gives us the concept of time and number while amplitude supplies the concept of space and size. It is important to note that everything we envision is within our natural mind, not "outside."

Helen Keller is the best example of this fact. Blind and deaf from an early age, she was yet able to write fourteen books and helped found the American Civil Liberties Union. Obviously, she did that from within her natural mind. Ego thinks in subjective terms when judging its observations, thus is always at least partially faulty in its evaluations. Helen Keller had no ego to spoil her accomplishments - like computers.

Another wonder woman is Mary Baker Eddy. The mid to late nineteenth century was an era of immensely significant advances in science and enlightened thinking. After Dr. Parkhurst Quimby cured her from a debilitating disease, she founded Christian Science with her book "Science and Health with a Key to the Scriptures." She discovered that the Universal Mind most would call "God" only seeks to regain balance in all life forms and heal any ills. Christian Science was mocked as quackery by materialists and industrialists as faith healing (even today) to prevent self-healing from becoming popular.

Voltaire said: "The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease."

Eddy's book has a clear message. It is not physical interpretations that explain our relationship to existence. It is the metaphysical understanding of thoughts that carves our creations.

Bucky Fuller is correct. Societal rules and values are indoctrinated into children’s brains by parents, teachers, peers, and the media of the day. Between the age of eighteen months (or when the child starts using language) and the age of reason (6-7 years), all manner of faulty apps, value systems, and programs are downloaded into the helpless victim’s brain. These create bad ideas and are used to make decisions in adulthood. They are the primary cause of psychic pain and mental illness. These victims will end up in the cemetery without ever discovering the truth that would set them free.

“If you want to understand the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.” Nikola Tesla.

Communication is the key. All human languages are zeroes and ones in various combinations to a computer. Computers can now be universal translators just like Picard’s on the Enterprise.

Open AI and Chat Generative Pre-Trained Transformer (GPT) already have the capability of making white-collar workers redundant. Knowledge workers will have to find new ways of occupying their time in the not-too-distant future. Fact-checkers will remain to oversee the computer outputs, but that will not necessitate more than about 10% of the current workforce handling information. Today’s grandchildren will be living in a vastly different environment than the one we now maintain.

Learning machines

The term ‘machine learning’ is often, incorrectly, interchanged with Artificial Intelligence, but machine learning is actually a subfield/type of AI. Machine learning is also often referred to as predictive analytics, or predictive modelling.

Coined by American computer scientist Arthur Samuel in 1959, the term ‘machine learning’ is defined as a “computer’s ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”.

At its most basic, machine learning uses programmed algorithms that receive and analyze input data to predict output values within an acceptable range. As new data is fed to these algorithms, they learn and optimize their operations to improve performance, developing ‘intelligence’ over time.

There are four types of machine learning algorithms: supervised, semi-supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement.

Supervised learning

In supervised learning, the machine is taught by example. The operator provides the machine learning algorithm with a known dataset that includes desired inputs and outputs, and the algorithm must find a method to determine how to arrive at those inputs and outputs. While the operator knows the correct answers to the problem, the algorithm identifies patterns in data, learns from observations and makes predictions. The algorithm makes predictions and is corrected by the operator – and this process continues until the algorithm achieves a high level of accuracy/performance.

Under the umbrella of supervised learning fall: Classification, Regression and Forecasting.

Classification: In classification tasks, the machine learning program must draw a conclusion from observed values and determine to what category new observations belong. For example, when filtering emails as ‘spam’ or ‘not spam,’ the program must look at existing observational data and filter the emails accordingly.

Regression: In regression tasks, the machine learning program must estimate – and understand – the relationships among variables. Regression analysis focuses on one dependent variable and a series of other changing variables – making it particularly useful for prediction and forecasting.

Forecasting: Forecasting is the process of making predictions about the future based on the past and present data and is commonly used to analyze trends.

Semi-supervised learning

Semi-supervised learning is similar to supervised learning, but instead uses both labelled and unlabeled data. Labelled data is essentially information that has meaningful tags so that the algorithm can understand the data, whilst unlabeled data lacks that information. By using this combination, machine learning algorithms can learn to label unlabeled data.

Unsupervised learning

Here, the machine learning algorithm studies data to identify patterns. There is no answer key or human operator to provide instruction. Instead, the machine determines the correlations and relationships by analyzing available data. In an unsupervised learning process, the machine learning algorithm is left to interpret large data sets and address that data accordingly. The algorithm tries to organize that data in a way to describe its structure. This might mean grouping the data into clusters or arranging it in a way that looks more organized.

As it assesses more data, its ability to make decisions on that data gradually improves and becomes more refined.

Under the umbrella of unsupervised learning, fall:

Clustering: Clustering involves grouping sets of similar data (based on defined criteria). It’s useful for segmenting data into several groups and performing analysis on each data set to find patterns.

Dimension reduction: Dimension reduction reduces the number of variables being considered to find the exact information required.

Reinforcement learning

Reinforcement learning focuses on regimented learning processes, where a machine learning algorithm is provided with a set of actions, parameters, and end values. By defining the rules, the machine learning algorithm then tries to explore different options and possibilities, monitoring and evaluating each result to determine which one is optimal. Reinforcement learning teaches the machine trial and error. It learns from past experiences and begins to adapt its approach in response to the situation to achieve the best possible result.

These learning techniques are being used daily by all humans to define their own peculiar universe.

This power will create an egalitarian society. No one is better or worse than anyone else. Whatever skills and talents we contain can grow to their maximum potential.

The power of Democracy

Most voters have little knowledge of what government is about and happily participate in the process like watching a spectator sport. Sides are chosen, cheering occurs when one side is winning, and polls are taken to decide what kind of message to broadcast for the opposing side to "score". Eventually, the chosen one is the least despicable to the most voters.

Jefferson, Franklin, and the other founding fathers intentionally put "Novus Ordo Seclorum" (New World Order) on the Great Seal for a reason. Regardless of whether their primary philosophy came from Freemasonry, all the symbolism on both sides of the Great Seal carries deep meaning of their intent. It is most likely that the democracy they envisioned was inclusive of all citizens, even though slavery was still in effect. The political atmosphere in the United States today absolutely reeks of exclusivity.

If human beings were a thinking species, they would not need to be governed. There definitely are a few independent thinkers, but they surely comprise a minority. This group, however, is the one that matters most to the candidates. Non-thinking voters already have placed their minds into a concrete shelter to prevent any information from entering and confusing them with facts. They will be ignored by the candidates because their votes are secure. How did we get to this situation?

The United States is a democracy, but that is just a facade for what is happening today. The ideal form of government is to have no politicians and no state. That would be Utopia. The current form of world government is Oligarchy -- government by the few. The oligarchs have used Capitalism to amass their power and use the military/industrial complex to terrorize the population while they party. Eisenhower warned us of the military/industrial complex but was ignored.

Another word for the existing government is plutocracy -- government by the rich. If we combine the two, we can coin a novel word -- Plutarchy. The members are comprised of consortiums like the Koch brothers have formed. The Koch Plutarchs gather twice annually to feed the coffers of the conservatives for the purpose of swaying uninformed minds into their camp. They are champions of disinformation and misinformation to serve their own best interests. One of their biggest concerns is unionization. They go through great lengths to divide and conquer. The last line of the Communist Manifesto is "Workers of the world, UNITE!" That would shake the Plutarchs to their boots. The surveillance systems implemented and continually improving is a good sign of their fears.

Touted to protect inventors from encroachment on their ideas, the United States Patent Office (USPO) also alerts the Plutarchy of potentially dangerous threats to their control. Nikola Tesla was the best example of being victimized by this new process. When he first published his findings on how to provide free energy to everyone on earth, J. P. Morgan and others promptly pulled the rug from under that goal by eliminating financial support to continue developing his idea.

The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries were times of fantastic scientific discoveries and enlightened thinking. Many attempts to automate human functions occurred in history, but the first hugely significant advances were made by Charles Babbage, George Boole, and Ada Lovelace in the mid-1800s. Babbage was commissioned by the British government to create the Analytical Engine that arguably would have become the first computer, had it been finished. Ada Lovelace was the first computer programmer.

George Boole contributed Boolean Logic that is contained in all software today. His "Laws of Thought" and "Calculus of Logic" are the foundation of modern computing. It wasn't until Alan Turing came into the picture in late 1930s and early 1940s that computers began using binary as the base for programming. The Z3, created by Konrad Zuse in 1941, started the revolution of computer evolution.

One of the greatest geniuses ever born was Nikola Tesla. His insight of how the universe functions is at the core of today's technology. His hundreds of patents were ignored and violated by Thomas Edison, Samuel Morse, and others but Tesla never took offense or indicated resentment. Edison was more opportunistic marketer than inventor.

There is no cell phone, television or computer that does not use Tesla's discoveries. They are all based upon his: "If you want to understand the universe, think in terms of Energy, Vibration and Frequency." That statement is the source of the digital age and virtual reality. Virtual reality is an artificial computer mind that can communicate with the human mind.

One of the first notables influenced by Newton was Franz Mesmer, the founder of hypnotherapy. His "animal magnetism" concept was used to heal a twenty-seven-year-old woman from a horrible condition that caused convulsions and many other symptoms. After Mesmer’s treatment, she was instantly and completely healed. Phineas Parkhurst Quimby used the same technique to heal Mary Baker Eddy from debilitating illness. Eddy went on to write "Science and Health (with a key to the Scriptures)" that is the foundation of Christian Science.

From these monumental works came the creation of the Industrial Age. Fulton, Edison, Tesla, and others used the science of their predecessors to create the basis for the military/industrial complex. As more factories appeared, agrarian society slowly gave up its lands to become wage slaves. Promise of a better standard of living lured young minds to growing cities. Whereas settlers had to be creative jacks-of-all-trades to survive and use both sides of their brain, industrialization has reduced their natural abilities to become simple and hypnotized "human resources."

The twentieth century brought major advancements. The airplane, automobile, and the introduction of automation moved the world faster and faster. The Atomic Age was born, along with all the paranoia associated with mass destruction. All elements were now available to control the human ego and its decision-making ability. The Plutarchy was now pulling the strings.

Inventions and discoveries that would erode the power of the Plutarchy were suppressed and discounted. Turning desert into farmland (1920s) was quickly stifled; leaded gasoline lasted far more years than it should because the oil barons did not want to spend money to clean up the air (1960s); Exxon/Mobil suppressed their findings (1970s) that burning fossil fuel contributed to the global warming, etc... If someone in power would oppose such activity, they would be assassinated.

John and Bobby Kennedy, Martin Luther King, John Lennon, and others were never allowed to further humanity’s harmony with the planet. The Plutarchy had plenty of cash to motivate the killers. If cash did not work, brainwashing weak minds to kill ensued.

The best weapon the Plutarchy uses today against the population is the television. Other media like radio and newspapers are also used to some degree but "a picture is worth a thousand words" works quicker and better.

When Newton Minow gave his speech "The Vast Wasteland," related to the usage of television, he was also ignored. TV has become the best brainwashing tool of the Plutarchy. It will be used extensively in the election process. It is no accident that schedules on television are called "Programming" because that is what it does to the human ego. This has evolved into new and improved brainwashing techniques evident in smart phones and social media outlets.

Smart phones with access to the truth means the elimination of politicians. We can all have a vote for the lifestyle we desire and change our minds every day. For us to reach this pinnacle of humanity, we must come to some agreements.

The media are controlled by the Plutarchy, without a doubt. Rupert Murdoch, Disney, Fox, and many others continually distract egos from the truth. Sports, entertainment, booze, and sex also are made plentiful to prevent independent thoughts from sneaking into the system. The idea here is to keep uninformed minds so occupied with irrelevant goals that the true goal of the Plutarchy is never sought. Diversion, distraction, and disinformation keep the herds from stampeding. Pro and con means for and against. If unifying the population is analogous to fusion, Fascists use con-fusion methods to divide and conquer.

Life is to be treasured. There is no life form that is "better than" or "worse than" any other life form. Human forms, tree forms, indeed, all forms are interconnected and interdependent. The culprit that screws up the soup is the artificial mind we know as EGO.

All life is doing its best to express itself in the environment it occupies. The ego is targeted by the Plutarchy to maintain its death grip on uninformed minds. This is accomplished by understanding how the human brain makes decisions and giving it input that will guide the decision in the direction the Plutarchy desires. It is a form of hypnosis that would make Mesmer proud.

Egos under hypnosis do not realize they are hypnotized. They are aware of what they are doing, but they do not know the reason they are doing it. When asked why they do what they do, they retreat into babble to try and avoid embarrassment. They may quote what they heard or read or rely on cultural indoctrination to justify their decisions. They also may be so deeply hypnotized that they have lost their ability to think for themselves.

Egos are subjected to indoctrination, training, and confusion. Education in the United States is primarily used to train wage slaves that can further the Plutarchy's interests. It appears that current curricula are sorely lacking in Music and the Arts. Cursive penmanship is disappearing in schools. These elements are served by the brain's right hemisphere, and this is the side that Plutarchs fear. Development of both hemispheres leads to effective and efficient decision-making. The digital side (left) communicates with the analog side (right) by traveling through the Corpus Callosum. We think about what we feel and feel what we think. If we all did that regularly, the Plutarchy would disappear.

Einstein's brain contained a Corpus Callosum of huge proportions, no doubt from contemplating his Special Theory of Relativity. Expansion of the Corpus Callosum happens when we exercise it, just like our musculature improves with exercise. One of the best ways to do that is to meditate. If we seek a peaceful space and allow our true consciousness to express itself, we can cleanse ourselves of the ego's control. For most people, this is no simple task.

Ego is a hugely persistent nag. Gimme, gimme, gimme is the constant cacophony of its unquenchable desire. And, once it has what it is nagging about, it seeks to hold onto it for dear life. Either that, or it becomes disenchanted with the worthless bauble it acquired and tosses it. Grasping, taking, holding for no other reason than to feel superior to other life forms. Ego is the only entity that wants more than it needs. That is why it is so susceptible to hypnotism. The Plutarchy is aware of this.

Our universal consciousness is in all forms. Humans have animal bodies and will have inborn programming common to all animals. This is our Instinct.

We are born when sperm and egg unite and begin developing into our human form. The programming in the genes and memes of our parents and all previous ancestors will occupy our amygdala while alive on Mother Earth. (All of us have Neanderthal traits.) This is our Intuition.

As we grow, we will acquire more atoms from Mother Earth to build a complete adult form. We will contain the same characteristics as Mother Earth herself. We are made of her dust and into her dust we shall return. The earth does not belong to wayward egos -- we all belong to Mother Earth.

The current infrastructure of world government uses technology to maintain control. Computers are extensions of the brain into the realm of zeroes and ones. Computers operate with a combination of hardware and software, and so do we. Computers can be digital or analog and so can we be. The Plutarchy uses communication systems extensively through computerization to manipulate uninformed and/or unthinking egos.

The brain operates much as an antenna that can both broadcast and receive vibrations of varying frequencies and amplitudes. As communication is received by the brain, messages contained in it will be examined first by frequency and then, amplitude. The left hemisphere manages the digital frequency, and the right manages the analog amplitude. In the examination, communication through the Corpus Callosum occurs to create the MEANING of the message for the ego examining it. The longer the examination, the greater the meaning for the simple reason that all meaning is connected. The Plutarchy knows this.

Abraham Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs also applies to groups and government. His pyramid prioritizes these needs as: physiological, security, love/belonging, esteem and self-actualization. Current Fascism does not enter the Love/Belonging level.

Those who think their vote is worthless are correct in this political scenario. As long as egos are willing to be hypnotized, the Plutarchy will continue wielding their power. The current crop of Republican candidates is not republican. It is a Fascist extension of the Plutarchy. The Democratic side appears friendlier but is still controlled by the Plutarchy. There is no one to blame.

Everyone is doing the best they can under the circumstances. There are only three circumstances in living our lives: Time, space and understanding. Since it is always Here and Now, the only way to improve life is to address our understanding.

After the Second World War, the United States experienced a period of unparalleled growth and prosperity. Unified efforts by the citizenry had started a process of cooperation, community, and general well-being for most. The "Baby Boom" indicates healthy relationships and promise of a good societal future.

After Eisenhower, things started changing fast in the United States. One major reason, of course, was the proliferation of televisions throughout the country. After the Plutarchy dispatched the Kennedys and Martin Luther King, they had a relatively free rein to manage the population at will. Their wealth could now be grown by creating wars and bleeding wage slaves.


Social stratification occurs because of levels of understanding. Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs depicts these levels (and have been expanded by others.) Truth is, we have no needs other than consciousness. Other so-called needs are only wants or desires. It is what we want that drives the economic system, not what we need. These unnecessary and egotistical wants are despoiling Mother Earth.

We do not need oil -- we need clean water and clean air; we need love and compassion, not atomic weapons; we need to share this planet, not assign ownership of pieces of it to the chosen few. It seems that the chosen few are leading this world into oblivion. We need new leadership for the masses unwilling or incapable of seeing this greater view.

If having a healthy planet is not the most important goal of our lives, we must agree to make it so.

Noetic Science

Noetic Science allows for states of insight into depths of truth unplumbed by the discursive intellect. They are illuminations, revelations, full of significance and importance, all inarticulate though they remain; and as a rule, they carry with them a curious sense of authority. Very much like becoming a mystic.

Noetic Science is a new and interdisciplinary field of study that aims to explore the nature of consciousness and its relationship to the physical world. It is based on the idea that consciousness is not just a byproduct of physical processes in the brain, but is a fundamental aspect of the universe, present in all living and non-living things.

The term "noetic" comes from the Greek word "noesis," which means "inner wisdom" or "direct knowing." Noetic science draws on a range of disciplines, including psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, physics, and spirituality, to explore questions related to consciousness, such as the nature of the mind-body connection, the relationship between consciousness and the brain, and the role of consciousness in creating reality.

Noetic science is a relatively young field, but it has already produced some interesting research and findings, such as the ability of the mind to influence physical reality, the existence of non-local consciousness (i.e., consciousness that is not limited to the brain or body), and the potential for consciousness to transcend time and space.

It's worth noting that some scientists and skeptics are critical of noetic science, as some of its claims are difficult to test or verify using conventional scientific methods. However, many researchers in the field believe that noetic science has the potential to shed new light on some of the biggest questions about the nature of reality and consciousness.

"The simple truth of the universe is that we create our own reality." Edgar D. Mitchell, Apollo astronaut; This is agreement number 2.

If we all commit to sharing meaningful context and begin imagining Utopia as our goal, there will be no stopping the climb up the enlightenment ladder. It will become the reality that Edgar Mitchell refers to.

Because of voice recognition, the knowledge base(s) can be made available to the entire population in whatever language it uses. The world population will eventually relate to truth and understanding.

Everyone reading these words is spending time on their number one priority Now, Here, under these circumstances (Knowledge). If your tea kettle calls you or your smoke alarm goes off, you will be distracted and address your new number one priority. Most people seldom address their goal valuation, but it will eventually be essential to do so in order to create a sane and safe Utopia. What would a Utopian society mean to humanity?

Heaven on earth is called Utopia. Utopia is a kind and gentle place. There are no homeless people in it. It is an egalitarian society where no individual is ignored. There are many examples of imagined Utopias in history from Plato, Thomas More and others.

The Hippie movement in the 1960s created communes intended to provide solace to the weary by ridding themselves of decadent objectives. There is one major difference between those ideals and the one we can create today - Technology. In Utopia, technology is the slave of humanity, rather than the other way around as it is today. To achieve that reversal, the existing ruling class must move aside.

Everything humans believe and value is based upon agreements among themselves. They form groups that communicate and bolster beliefs and values they desire to hold as true, or real, and live their life according to the mandates of the group(s) to which they want to belong. This is the basic herding instinct of social animals - which we are. In Utopia, there is only one group, and it is all-inclusive.

Splinter groups are created by "Groupthink," or Collective Consciousness of their members. They separate themselves by agreeing to trains of thought that differentiate them from other groups. Their behavior is governed by the indoctrination of dogma into their groupthink. This dogma is also called a tenet - French for "to hold," or ism. Today's society has too many isms to mention that create separation instead of unification.

Anarchism is the political belief that there should be little or no formal or official organization to society, but that people should work freely together. Communism is the elimination of political states and personal profit. In Utopia, competition is replaced by communication, collaboration and cooperation for the benefit and progress of the whole. There is no room for individual ownership, power, or greed. The prevalent isms of a sane, safe, and healthy society are anarchism and communism working in concert.

After the basic needs of human existence are satisfied, most people desire freedom and love. Freedom of expression, freedom from fear, freedom of movement, understanding and growth underpin Utopian society. Children are regarded as seeds destined to blossom into their purpose for being rather than be trained to become wage slaves. Traditions, superstitions, false beliefs, and values are replaced with the understanding that we are all threads in the fabric of Universal Consciousness. Development of the arts and sciences in young minds is the objective of education. To "educe" means to develop or make something appear. The power we all possess when connecting with the Universal Consciousness is the goal of Utopian education.

Utopians know that Mother Earth is the provider of our sustenance. Respect for our mother is a primary concern for all her inhabitants. These is no waste nor pollution in Utopia. There is no usage of her resources for the purpose of destruction, decadence, and frivolity. The quality of life has nothing to do with material things or toys and games to occupy idle minds.

There are no polluted streams or poisoned atmosphere in Utopia. Cities which have become like skin cancer upon her face are replaced with common sense, self-sustaining communities that harmonize with her Nature. These communities would be connected by technology that is available today.

Utopia is achievable without violence or coercion. It can be attained by the removal of false ideas and false isms. It will sprout when those who support the ruling class turn their attention to those being ruled. The only reason the ruling class has power is because we allow them to take ours.

Music can bring people and their thoughts together. The anthem of Utopia is John Lennon's song "Imagine." The message of the lyrics implies that the way to "live as one" is to eliminate organized religion, politics, and money. It may be that Yoko's influence, probably based upon Eastern philosophy, had an impact on John. Buddhism is not a religion, but rather a way of living. The Tao is the path to enlightenment and that is analogous to the road to Utopia. Its message is Oneness - “…and the world will be as one.”


This is longer than usual. If you have the patience to finish it, your gut-feel interpretation is welcome.

Isaac Asimov wrote "I, robot" in 1950. If you want to understand how that science fiction is becoming science fact, I recommend your reading this (or watch the movie).

The big takeaway I wish for you is to understand that software is congealed human thought. Once our knowledge bases have been purged of false thinking, we will all face the truth of what we are.
