God's Algorithm

There is this kind of time travel experience we've all had now and then; when hearing a certain song brings back a flood of memories from our past.  Emotional associations to the soundtrack of our lives do have a habit of letting some memories out for some fresh air; and when they do we're momentarily caught up in this swirl of memories released from stasis.

This has happened to me a few times over the past several weeks, yet there is something different about the memories; they're not as sharp or clear as always before, like looking at something thru water.  Though some may disagree, I don't think this is due to natural aging...it just feels different than that.  When this occurs it reminds me of being in grade school; having to learn ancient history even though it happened so long ago and couldn't have a bearing on my life.  That is kind of how those old memories feel, like ancient history, almost unconnected to my life today...and more importantly to the future.

It's like the poet Bob Dylan warned us: "The Times they are changing"

We certainly don't need to rely on such experiences to remind us of just how distorted everything is these days; even a casual appraisal of the world around us is more than enough to tell us we're not in Kansas anymore.  It would be a different story if all these rapid changes we're experiencing were leading towards that Aquarian paradise we've all heard about; but they are not - they're leading towards even greater pandemonium and all out chaos world wide.  Not the dream so many have envisioned for so long.  Not even close.

Some envision the time when things can be fixed, and the world can return to a more dignified and peaceful state of being; unfortunately the bad news here is that the system isn't broken; it was designed to operate exactly as it is.   The world is controlled, and events driven, by the power elite who always promise that life will improve but never seem to make good on that promise.  Every so often we remember those empty promises and raise a little hob to demonstrate our displeasure; and the reaction from the power elite is the same every time, doesn't matter what country you're in.  In every instance such demonstrations are met with brute force & violence, and put down hard.  This is the signature trademark of the power elite: the nail that sticks up gets hammered back down.

We walked on the moon for the first time 45 years ago this week, and I for one, was sure we would have walked on Mars by now; but now we don't even have a space program anymore - (well, at least not a public one) just one more example of the arrested development humanity has been steered into by the power elite.  Those who consider themselves our owners rely heavily on confusion and obfuscation as a primary tool of control, and it works quite well because almost nobody sees the big picture and those who do are labeled as "nutters" and marginalized. 

Humanity currently has everything necessary to abolish war, end poverty, conquer disease, and provide decent living conditions for everyone, not a single human excluded; we have everything that is except control, that is where it's always been, in the hands of the power elite.  Knowing as we do that the fix is in, the game is rigged, and all elections to powerful positions are fraudulent; we also know that the power elite never intend to relinquish that power - ever, so what is to be done?  "They" have everything so confused and chaotic that to the average mind solving all these greed generated problems seems an impossibility, like solving the Rubik cube puzzle.  Almost every current threat to humanity can be traced directly back to human activity, mostly in pursuit of business, & power.  These things can be undone, reversed, or ended altogether, but it will take much more than wishful thinking. 

Did you know that the Rubik cube can be solved in 20 moves or less, from any starting position, and without cheating?  It doesn't seem possible, but it's the truth, (just like 80% of  household dust is actually human skin!)  There is no "trick" to solving the Rubik cube, but rather a Key...which will also work just as well with any other complex human endeavor.  The key is something called God's Algorithm, which basically is all about solving the problem by only making moves which give optimal results.  An optimal result is one requiring the fewest moves toward final solution, and is therefore also an elegant solution.  An excellent example of using god's algorithm would be the book "Critical Path" by the late renowned futurist R. Buckminster Fuller.   Originating back when we still had a space program; the critical path refers to the exact, precise steps which must be taken in proper sequence in order to have a successful rocket launch.  The Apollo program had a critical path of two million steps, half of which required new technological solutions.  Fuller's book takes a similar project planning approach to the saving of mankind, and sees how it can be accomplished with existing technology, and with no fighting over resources.  Not only worth reading, should be mandatory reading! 

So, let us talk of elegant, optimal solutions for the world of today.  Collectively speaking we all know where we want to be...call that the solution of the puzzle...in so much that most all of us humans would prefer a world free of war and corporate domination, a world without hate, greed, hunger, slavery or undue violence, just for starters.  So, we know what we want, and most certainly we can see where it is we have been taken by the power elite, where we are today.  There is a lot of gnarly territory between where we are and where we'd like to be; and as before, the key to getting there (collectively) is making only optimal result kind of moves; those moves which serve the greater good of humanity, and the planet herself.  What does that critical path look like?

I dare say it will take more than twenty elegant, optimal moves to achieve the end result humanity desires; but first and foremost I think it will require a unity of spirit and purpose we'll never have as long as we continue to allow the power elite to set us against each other.  This could be a huge stumbling block considering our collective need to feel special, or "better than" those around us, factoring in our seemingly hardwired need for conflict & drama in our everyday lives. 

I think it's true that we can only change the world one person at a time; one heart at a time.  I also think such change can spread throughout humanity like a prairie fire once the saturation point of the hundredth monkey is reached, after that it will have its own inertia and momentum.  That is why so many have "worked on themselves" over the last couple decades; getting ready for the shift that has been underway for awhile now, the shift which relentlessly increases in intensity.  Obviously we cannot make optimal, elegant moves that will change the world without first applying the same to our individual lives, and therein resides another Key.  By asserting the sovereignty of our timeless-ageless-multidimensional-souls; we can take back our power from those who stole it away: which diminishes them and empowers us

This brings us right back into the domain of the universal law which states that energy follows thought.  We create our individual reality according to what and how we think, and choose to believe.  It isn't a universal law that demands your compliance, but is rather, one that operates on universal principles regardless of your awareness.  Every day you consider yourself a powerless victim, that is exactly what the universe will show you because the universe rearranges itself to match your picture of reality.  Where is your attention focused, and what keeps it focused there?  The matrix of the power elite sells us all a common world view in a myriad of ways, and uses that to exploit the more negative aspects of our basic human nature.  The fear mongering power elite know very well how easily manipulated humanity is when kept in a constant state of fear.  It really doesn't even matter what the fear is, as long as everybody feels it most of the time for one reason or another.  Works really well.

We've seen that same tired old dog & pony show all our lives, haven't we?  Nothing ever changes for the better and the swamp is getting deeper all the time.  What if we denied them our focus of attention, and began looking at other ways to see, and be in, this world?  Because the universal law of energy follows thought has no choice or option: it operates elegantly & optimally every time, according to input.  If we then (collectively) begin to divert our attention to the opposite of the status quo, it is weakened, as that which we focus our attention on is empowered toward manifestation. 

The great shift of the ages is happening right now, and part of this evolutionary event is the accelerating resonance of humanity, to a higher spiritual octave: we're graduating~ not from high school but from kindergarten.  What we knew as 3rd dimensional reality ended on a rainy afternoon a few years back, ushering us abruptly into the resonance of 4th dimensional frequency resonance...a brief (thank goodness) transitional period in which humanity can now choose a different path.  The facade of the old white men's club is crumbling more each day as that paradigm dies, just as the dinosaurs did.  It can't go on like this much longer without imploding, and I think by now we can all sense that is true.  I say stand back, and let it fail, let it fall and good riddance. 

There is no universal law that says we must follow the "news" read the paper or watch TV, no spiritual directive to give that tired old dog & pony show another minute of our time or attention, because doing so just keeps us at that vibration.  Life, and reality is a multiplex theater my friends, so if you are now tired of this old show, there are many others to choose from just around the corner.  Just a mouse click away you can find entire universes of awareness resonating at higher frequencies.  Places like Earth-Heal.com and in5d.com are a couple of my favorite higher resonance resources for finding something better to focus upon, and a better world view.  Another regular stop for me is sorendreier.com. a repository of wisdom both ancient and contemporary, and a portal to other voices and other visions.   Krishna Das is currently doing a bus tour of America and performing to sold out auditoriums every where he goes; kinda like a spiritual Johnny Appleseed, sowing the harmonics of raised consciousness across the land, and he is just one of many musicians doing the same thing.  It's spreading like a prairie fire folks!

If we are to apply god's algorithm to our individual lives the first order of business is the clearing away of some residual debris of all descriptions.  Go thru your closets and garage: when you see something you haven't touched in over a year, get rid of it, give it away, sell it - you no longer need it.  Lighten the load, clear the clutter.  Use everything, leave nothing.  If you have people in your life you haven't touched in over a year, no advice from me will help, but the idea here is to release yourself from toxic relationships which no longer serve you.  If you're in a toxic relationship and it does serve you; well here again you probably aren't even reading this! 

Very often events such as the great shift of the ages are the catalyst for personal epiphany.  Abruptly changing your world view and/or spiritual path is seldom a smooth transition in and of itself, much less during the halcyon times such as we live in.  Sometimes the foundation is the first to go, ushering in a period of confusion and a certain detached  sensation.  When the dust settles and you get your bearings, the first thing you may discover is that some things no longer "work" the way they used to...that a sequence of moves which always before produced optimal results, no longer does.  No worry, just ditch that sequence of moves in favor of some new combination, remembering that energy follows thought

Before we can see a new world, we first must be sure we are willing to see and be open to new concepts and inter-relationships of things and people.  Everything new and wonderful exists just beyond your comfort zone.  Try to be available for life to show you the way you may be seeking.  Don't plan stuff out ahead of time to create a schedule, instead; as much as possible, let go and go with the flow - see what that shows you!  To rise up out of the sticky energy of 4D, we must release our addiction to conflict and negativity.  Focus on the positive instead.  We each have free will, and can therefore choose to align with either the positive or negative polarity, just remember that energy follows thought and the universe shapes itself to match your expectations.

Stop over-thinking everything!  First of all there is literally zero chance of any of us figuring out the answer to Life, the Universe & Everything, and trying to will earn you a check-up from the neck up in the pre-hab unit, so relax...there is a whole bunch of stuff we will never understand...enjoy the now!  Right now all of humanity is like Lewis & Clark; moving through undiscovered realms of time-space for the first time ever!  Just like Krishna Das, signs of higher resonance energy are everywhere these days but we may not always recognize them as such simply because there's no instruction book handy to tell us just what to look for.  Life is a river ~ go with the flow.

You know how you can get a melody stuck in your head?  That has been happening to me for several weeks now, always the same little tune; one I've never heard before, ever.  Sometimes I find myself whistling it, other times lightly humming, but increasingly wondering its origin.  I've found that just allowing the melody to play out in my mind seems to bring about a slightly altered state of consciousness where my thoughts take flight to new and exotic places...so I've decided maybe the tune comes from the future; perhaps the new jeopardy 'think music' or something - doesn't matter where it comes from, I enjoy it.  

In the undiscovered country still ahead of us, there exists perhaps not a perfect world; but one which is at the very least the polar opposite to the world of the power elite.  It exists, and there is indeed a critical path to getting there.  Although getting there may require a couple million elegant, optimal moves; it can all be accomplished with existing technology and resources. The first move must be towards unity, and the greatest good of all humanity.  One heart at a time.

Shifting Timelines, Free Will & the Power of Choice

Have you been feeling of late that someone turned up the treadmill on the rat race?  Perhaps the world has begun feeling a bit like an accelerating merry-go-round threatening to toss you off if your grip fails.  Does it feel as if insanity gains more ground every day while decency and morality continue to be given the Rodney King treatment?  Have ya noticed that we're not in Kansas anymore?  I don't know what is worse; the fact that there are now school shootings nearly every week - or that we're getting used to it; accepting it much as the slave endures yet another lash from the walking boss. 

These are just a few of the symptoms of the spiritual evolution currently well underway; and although it gets very little mainstream news coverage it is an irresistible wave of change, happening all around us right now.  We can try to surf the crest of these changes, or be pummeled & pounded by them.  The tired old paradigms of the Piscean age are crumbling now because they have to; they have no choice in the matter, their time on the stage is over, and thus we have the two opposite and divergent timelines separating from one another.  One timeline remains in 4th dimensional frequency resonance, the other simply moves uphill an octave on the evolutionary scale, to 5th dimensional frequency resonance.  This shifting of the timelines is rather like an election in the realm of spirit.  Decide which frequency you wish to express in, and vote for it by giving it all your mental energy and focus...and it will become your reality. 

Energy follows thought.  If you focus primarily on the hateful and negative side of life, and always feel like a victim; that is what you will attract, and vice versa.  Understanding this is key to resolving which timeline you will embrace.  How much change are you willing to accept in order to raise your frequency resonance?  We are witnessing the shifting of the timelines more every day now; as each day brings even more reports of high strangeness, crumbling paradigms, and a  visible, growing rift throughout civilized society.  Even as the warmongers are wringing their claws in glee at sending "Advisors" back into Iraq as if we've never heard the term and never lost a war there.  You see it isn't about changing the people in control, or  "good" overcoming "evil" or even changing society: it's not about that at all.  It's about individual transformation, and spiritual growth from childhood, into adolescence. 
It's about free will, and the power of choice.  It's about taking responsibility for our own spiritual destiny, before someone else does it for us by consensual proxy.  It's about taking our power back and consciously choosing the reality we wish to exist in.  The 4th dimensional world will continue on as it is essentially unchanged, for those who are not yet ready to make the transition, and still need it.  For others the way is now open to make that transition into higher vibration, and higher consciousness, but ya gotta leave the baggage behind, lighten the load.  I know it is much harder than I make it sound; but then if it was easy, everyone would be doing it.  You could say it's kind of a rite of passage, I suppose.  The key here is in your intention!  Whatever your intention is, focus on that, because by so doing you are essentially programming your uplink to the Unified Quantum Field.  If your heart's desire is to stick around and see how this all plays out, then by all means, keep obsessing about the current state of world politics, wars, and rumors of wars; and your wish will be granted.  If however you desire a more refined, more spiritual environment; now is the time to place your order, as the veils are lifting, the timelines are diverging.  Wherever your thoughts & intent are focused the strongest & longest, that is where your energy will flow to.  It has to.  It doesn't have a choice~but we do.

Free Will vs Fate
My personal belief is that this is not a dimension of pre-determined, immutable fate, but rather one where we have each been endowed by Source with free will, to choose our own path, and destiny.  I have seen far too many people overcome having life stack the deck against them, and emerge whole, happy and successful people, to believe any other way.  When life gets hard, and knocks people down time and again; it's easy to take the view that it's fate, and there is no escaping it no matter how hard you try.  When 'the rules' change without notice and the futures of millions are decided by a select few behind locked doors; it's only human to become discouraged, then jaded in one's world view.  But, there is always more to it than just that, of course, it goes much deeper and farther back than most people realize.  All too often folks use the unfairness of life and the harshness of reality to kinda shut down, give in, and quit trying.  It becomes just too hard to make sense of the madness, so we just work around it the best we can and try to find some meaningful happiness. 
Peoples belief systems are a lot like setting a long string of dominoes on end, with each one representing a certain belief.  Great care is then taken to ensure that nothing be allowed to topple this chain of beliefs, especially the first ones, the foundational beliefs upon which all subsequent beliefs are structured.  If something is allowed to topple those first few beliefs, the entire system comes cascading down, one after another.  Our ego's cannot tolerate that, so we protect and defend our belief systems against all comers, including logic.  Logic and facts are a dangerous threat to belief systems founded upon illogical presumption. 

Belief systems are also a lot like a life preserver at sea.  If the one you have barely keeps you afloat in calm waters, it is likely to fail you all together when the winds of change whip up a storm.  Isn't it more appealing to believe in the power of free will, which permits you to overcome nearly any obstacle, than to limp along with the crutch of "fate" being responsible for all your woes?  I think so!  Another nice aspect of free will is that it doesn't require others to validate your belief system with their agreement.  On the other hand, proponents of  fate often feel they must insist on such agreement for their views to have merit; all the while rejecting all contrary views out of hand. 

These diverging timelines are a great stressor on simply everything, especially us frail and flighty humans.  We have moved out beyond the reach of history into uncharted waters with no landmarks to guide us onward.  Our comfort zones are being squeezed & stretched with each new assault on our decency and dignity; and all we have to cling to are our belief systems, most of which are firmly rooted in the now-dying paradigm.  Not such a great flotation device after all.  As the dichotomy & duality of life we've always accepted become more distorted; and society seems to be leaning more each day toward Bat Shit Crazy, our souls become a bit restless as our egos try to maintain our outward composure.  Pretending to those around us, and those who depend on us that we have it all figured out adds a tremendous amount of stress to everything else stressing us out.
Now the owners of this crumbling paradigm are frantically pulling out all the stops; in a desperate effort to prop up the facade a little longer so they can milk it for every last possible dollar.  Unfortunately for us average folks, one of their nastiest tricks is to keep us distracted by setting us against each other with a mine field of controversial "hot button issues" which only serve to divide us further than we already are.  They are succeeding.  No matter what the issue: 911,  abortion, gay marriage, global warming, chemtrails, religion, or unicorns; these days nobody wants to debate the actual issue, instead they unleash a pack of feral ankle biters attacking the character of those who believe differently with a litany of  subterfuge and linguistic tricks; and they fill up every "news cycle" with exactly that.  Because a citizenry capable of critical thought is "their" worst threat, those in power are waging an astonishingly effective war against science; seeking to not just dumb us down but to drive us back into the dark ages.  They know that energy follows thought, and that if they can keep our thoughts & minds focused here rather than on the 5th dimensional frequency resonance, our energy will trap us here as the timelines complete their separation, and the opportunity to choose is lost to us.  Its working. 

One good reason why it is working is because with the nature and pace of modern life, nobody makes the time to do the necessary reading & research to be well versed on so many different topics.  They just repeat the last thing they heard that sounded intellectual, and once repeated a few times, it becomes belief.    Even with the internet on your smart phone, who takes the time?  Let's walk thru this a minute:  Today's advanced state of technical, medical and computer wizardry with all the modern conveniences we depend upon and enjoy - is a product of science.  Now suddenly this cult of science deniers has sprung up to dispute everything that is already established fact.  It does no good to argue with these people because all they do is deny and attack.  Anything they have no answer for is simply ignored, like the issues themselves.   They're like telemarketers, and have a snappy but hollow comeback for whatever you may say, and like telemarketers, they operate from a script.  I cannot help but think of how very difficult it must be to believe in anything when your knowledge is so very limited.  The locked room.  If these science deniers have the courage of their "convictions" then I would expect them all to throw away their cell phones, automobiles and television, not mention the computer they use to deny science....yet, they aren't exactly doing that, are they?

The Power of Choice

I don't think many of us could get thru the day, much less function efficiently without making choices; we make a multitude of them every day, many of them on the fly, so to speak: without having much time for analysis or contemplation.  We make some choices so subconsciously as to be hardly aware of them until afterwards, in hind sight.  Life is all about choices, because its about free will, the freedom to pick one thing or way over another, and we do it constantly. 

There are basically three types, or levels of choice we humans make; and they follow along these lines:  The first level of choice includes the multitude of relatively small decisions we tend to make on a daily, weekly and monthly basis, the stuff of everyday life.  The second level of choice is represented by the fundamental choices we make around which our life will operate, and determines our comfort zone.  The third level of choice involves mid-to-long range plans and the decisions necessary to guide us there.  Now, on the surface this all seems straight forward enough, but as life so often teaches us; there is a hitch, and its not small.  The hitch is that no choice or decision can exceed the parameters of the second level of choice.  By example, if one of your second level choices is to have only a minimum of responsibility in life; then your third level choice to become president will never become your reality.  Energy follows thought!
The thing that makes this so critical is that the vast majority of us form the core of our second level choices while still adolescents...teenagers.   Society places a tremendous amount of pressure upon teens to compete, do your best, beat the other guy and be a winner!  Parents and peers are little help in this case, as they also encourage the same things in us, it's even said to be a healthy thing.  Well, maybe.  Now factor in all the other pressures bearing down upon the average teenager in western culture, echoing the mantra of success thru competition; acceptance, rejection and beauty...and then try to relate!  All too often this cumulative pressure becomes too overbearing; a nagging thing from which there seems no escape, and in an instant the choice is made.  Being a winner is too much hard work, too much competition and way too much stress - and being a loser is unacceptable for a whole raft of reasons.  The choice is then made to be neither a winner or a loser, but rather to seek the middle ground between those extremes, and it nearly always is made in the grips of pain, angst, confusion & low self esteem; during a dark night of the soul. 

When you argue in favor of your limitations, you get to keep 'em

This decision; this choice to be neither a winner or a loser in life becomes a core directive because in it there is safety, and insulation from the abuses of this world.  Being a second level choice it automatically trumps any other or subsequent choices that would exceed the built in parameters, and limitations.  Because life becomes somewhat easier after making the choice to not be a winner, it hangs around long enough to become habit; and long after that dark night of the soul, our tendency is to forget the pain that caused us to cripple our entire future with failure.  We forget making the choice, but that does nothing to limit its powerful effect.  Years later when full of potential and passion to achieve, we cannot understand why we just never seem able to grab the brass ring no matter how hard we try.  We forget that night we chose not to be a winner because we simply cannot believe choices made by tormented teens can be so powerful, but indeed they are! 

Now, if the choice made by a confused teenager in pain can be that powerful for that long a time: Imagine the power of a choice made by a spiritually conscious & aware soul with a focused intention!  Just imagine that!  Remember that hitch in the three levels of choice?  I said that no subsequent choice can overturn a second level choice...but I never said you cannot go back into the system and update the firmware, because you can!  If this scenario sounds familiar to you, and you now wish to break the cycle by changing that cornerstone choice to a better one, there'll never be a better time than right now.  The power to do this all rests within you.  Indeed, avail yourself of whatever technique or tactic that will help; (as long as it harms no one) but the power is all within you.  Once you understand that; and that energy follows thought, the rest is a piece of cake, or easy as pie if you're a cake hater.
One thing is certain, those who keep on sleepwalking thru this life by refusing to face the harsher realities of it, are most likely destined to remain in 4D frequency resonance until they figure it out.  Spiritual growth doesn't arise from defending a belief system inconsistent with evidence to the contrary because one is too afraid of change, or truth.  It, in fact is exactly opposite of what most folks embrace.  It isn't about believing it after you see it.  Its about seeing it when you believe it.  When Columbus landed in the new world, those who were already here saw only white puffy clouds approaching just above the water because they had no concept of a "ship" in their belief system.  Therefore they were unable to see the wooden ships, just the white canvas sails.  Within a very short time those who greeted Columbus could all see the ships just fine, once they had a concept of it.  In the exact same way, we are blind to those things we don't make room for in our perceptions of this world.

It doesn't help that we are programmed and conditioned from birth to conform, fit in, don't rock the boat and most of all; to be good consumers who never question authority.  As the old saying goes, "the nail that stands up gets hammered back down."  Generation after generation just keep accepting the imposed structure of the 40 hour work week (once upon a time) and whatever benefits the employer feels like giving.  With things being as they are economically a great many people feel lucky to even have a job; so they silently endure whatever draconian measures the employer may now impose that allow him to exploit the situation for more loot.  Once signed on to the grist mill of earning a living by building other peoples dreams; we automatically give up a whole lot of choice in the way our personal & collective futures will unfold.  Slavery was never abolished, it was just expanded to include everyone; your smart phone & smart meter are your newest manacles.   
Modern life and those who call the shots have an abrasive way of grinding the human spirit down gradually over time; to maximize productivity & minimize problems.  They've been at it a very long time now and gotten it down to a real art form of sorts.  We call it the Rat Race because there literally is no way out other than the grave.  At least that's what they want us to believe; that we have no options, when in fact we have several at any given time.  We just don't know how to recognize them anymore, being that we're out here beyond the reach of history, in uncharted waters and all.

So, yeah, if your getting the feeling lately that the world is a runaway train headed for a washed-out bridge with no one at the controls; and everyone is fighting over seating arrangements; that's actually fairly accurate, and if you aren't concerned now, you really should be.  Maybe it's time to quietly get up, leave the baggage, and find your way to the nearest exit.  This train is gonna crash whether you are on it or not, whether you believe it or not; so why stick around?  There is still time to make a hasty transfer to that train on the next track over, headed for 5D, but at this late date you may have to jump for it.

Global Warming for Dummies

You remember them, I'm sure you do.  How could we ever forget such people?  It seems they were just always there.  No matter where on this planet you went to school there were always a handful of those smarmy, conceited, opinionated, cowardly little quislings who thru the magic of ego always claimed to be right.  It never mattered what evidence there may be to the contrary, not even eye witnesses could prove them wrong. 

Even worse than being insufferable, these dilatants of the schoolyard somehow always managed to get protected species status whenever the principal became involved.  they were always the ones to start things off, then when it got out of hand, they were somehow just never held accountable, for anything; and never had to show their work.  They were a large part of why most of us hated going to school.  I took comfort in knowing that the real world beyond the schoolyard would eat those spoiled brats alive.  I never dreamed they would be running (and ruining) the planet fifty years later.

Back when I went to school being smart was what it was all about, becoming an educated, intelligent person.  I'm not sure about everyone else, but it just seemed to me that the smarter one became; the more advantage they had over the ignorant by choice types.  It was why moms wanted their daughters to marry doctors or lawyers: big brain - big bucks!  As I entered the workforce it certainly seemed like the smartest and most highly educated were the ones who worked at the management level, while the rest of us punched time cards.  Accordingly  it just went without saying that that to rise to the highest office in American politics, one must be smarter & more intelligent than the great unwashed masses; it was kind of a prerequisite for the job. 
Then about twenty years ago it all began to change, almost overnight it seems.  "They" began the great dumbing down of America in subtle little ways at first; the way all good social engineering begins.  Moving ever closer to their endgame objectives, the last thing  "they" wanted was an educated, intelligent population capable of critical thought.  The groundwork of course was laid with the younger generation.  In oh-so-subtle ways the powers that be torpedoed the upcoming generation by hi-jacking their culture and replacing it with the cult of the BCFMO's (Brightly Colored Fast Moving Objects).  Before long the ME generation became self absorbed, marginalized and polarized, wanting nothing to do with Washington politics.  Exactly as planned.

Leaving nothing whatsoever to chance, the powers that be covered all the bases with dozens of projects & programs which kicked the dumbing down of America into high gear.  Things like Chemtrails, GWEN towers, GMO food-like-products, and aspartame to go along with all the fluoridated water.  Weather modification became a huge thing, because what good is being able to do a thing, if you don't actually do it.  Never mind the consequences to the environment, or children.
Soon, all the legislation to protect the environment from industrial pollution began to disappear; replaced by legislation favoring the polluters, and privatizing water.  To top it all off and seal our fates they then installed our first ever truly moronic president, the bemused chimp, "W".  Our new role model in chief appeared as a savior to the ignorant and uneducated.  He instilled a new found pride in all who cannot speak without embarrassing themselves, or who just make up words when they don't know the correct one.  This of course quickly mutated into just making up new facts when the real ones are too inconvenient ~ and if the president can get away with it, then it must be okay.  Somewhere in those eight years of "W" everything got turned on its head and suddenly everyone wanted to be Larry the cable guy so the Tea Party was created so the truly ignorant could be represented in Washington DC

To me the most frightening aspect of all this was the way those in power suddenly stopped going to extremes to conceal their crime & treason.  Where always before dirty deeds were done in dark smoky rooms under a thick cloak of plausible deniability; now they were doing them in broad daylight, for everyone to see...as if they no longer cared!  With Dick Cheney & Karl Rove at the helm; a war on perception itself was waged whenever questions were raised.  By simply exchanging the words being used with their own, they sought to bring obfuscation to an actual art form for the ant farm.  It worked beautifully.  The legislation to protect polluters became the clean air & water act; the government controlled propaganda mill became clear channel and of course, global warming turned into climate change.  Change the words, spin the truth, crush the opposition! 

It never seems to matter nowadays what the facts are; not with the spin doctors & their manicured one-size-fits-all talking points parroted by every talking head on every one of those clear channels.  Yup, these are the very same talking heads who last week acted like Eric Cantor loosing an election was a national tragedy, while dismissing the most recent school shooting as one would a rainy day...except we don't seem to be getting many of those anymore!  What really gets me is how they even attempt to deny the obvious reality of global warming with their antics of obfuscation & Newspeak.  You see "climate change" is a very natural and normal part of life on earth; there have been many instances of climate change throughout history, always preceded by some global event, such as the end of the ice age.  Global warming isn't so natural in our case, as it is the direct result of burning fossil fuels; and is tied directly to our conduct upon the planet.

It takes a full year for Earth to take a single breath.  We have a record of this breathing going back some eight hundred thousand years.  Every ice core sample we take from the arctic regions holds an unbroken record of earth's atmosphere.  In all that time, the carbon dioxide (CO2) levels never exceeded three one hundredths of one percent...until the turn of the 20th century.  By burning fossil fuels we have turned earth's atmosphere into a dumping ground, with 40% higher CO2  levels than before the industrial revolution.  All this additional carbon dioxide has the direct result of trapping heat inside the atmosphere that should be escaping back to space.  With our arrogant mindless burning of fossil fuels, humans are dumping far more CO2 into the atmosphere than earth can absorb.  As a result, CO2 is building up in the atmosphere, which traps heat in, which is why we humans are responsible for global warming.

Yes, I know there are those who will say it isn't us, but rather the volcanoes on the planet.  Well, we can tell the two apart on the microscopic level; and the numbers say that all the planet's volcanoes add 500 million tons of volcanic CO2 to the atmosphere annually.  That is less than 2% of the 30 Billion tons of industrial CO2 we dump into the atmosphere every year.  The measured annual increase in atmospheric CO2 matches this known amount we create, almost perfectly!   If only carbon dioxide wasn't invisible; maybe if we could see it we could abandon our denial.  The arctic region is warming faster than anywhere on earth, and the arctic is primarily composed of permafrost which is permanently frozen organic material.  With the arctic warming, the permafrost is thawing, melting, and rotting; adding massive doses of CO2 and methane (another dangerous greenhouse gas) to the already polluted atmosphere. 

Scientists are concerned about this because the entire arctic region can double the current atmospheric CO2 levels; which in turn could conceivably crank the positive feedback loop into territory the earth  might not recover from, ever!  If the Earth quits breathing & dies from CO2 poisoning...well, you can extrapolate what that would mean for us.  So, why exactly are we still burning fossil fuels?  Then there is that whole Fukushima factor, and people dying in the gulf of Mexico from corexit poisoning...Who benefits from turning Earth into Venus' twin? 

Then there are those who claim that global warming is a result of the Sun.  Well, let's have a look at the facts!  First of all, solar output levels have remained stable over a remarkable length of time, no increase that would account for all the warming we're currently seeing.  Then, there is the fact that earth is warming more at night than during the day; and warming more in winter than in summer.  Exactly what one would expect from industrial greenhouse warming.  It isn't the Sun - but the sun can save us from ourselves, there is still time if we just choose to act instead of deny.  In one hour more solar energy falls to earth than all the energy our civilization consumes in a year.  Suppose we could harness just a small fraction of available solar & wind power; we could supply ALL our energy needs forever without adding carbon dioxide to the air we breathe.  Simple really!  So, why do we ignore these facts, and continue to pollute & toxify the only planet we have to live on?? 

It is perfectly fine to not know all the answers all the time, it's what fuels the thirst for knowledge in the first place.  In every case, it is always better to admit one's own ignorance than to believe in something wrong, or not to believe at all.  Pretending to have all the answers closes & locks the door to discovering the truth; and it dishonors your soul.  The abandonment of reason & logic can only lead us into a second helping of the dark ages, and doesn't that sound perfectly dreamy?  

Is it logical or reasonable to continually elect, then ignore politicians who when pressed for accountability always use the same words; "I have no recollection of that at this time."?  Does it strike you as odd that following the eight years of "W" we immediately got eight years zero progress on anything?  "They" would have us all believe that congress & Washington are in gridlock because of the skin color of the resident president; when the truth is they are using that as a ruse, a ploy to provide the country with street theater while they continue to rob everyone blind and push their endgame agenda.  What does it say about us as a species that we give more credibility to the lies about global warming than to what we can observe around us with our own senses?  Nothing terribly good, I'm afraid.

So, this is the whirlwind we reap for ignoring those prissy cowards on the schoolyard fifty years ago; when we should have kicked their collective asses.  If no behavior modification is applied to spoiled brat children during the formative years, what you invariably end up with is spoiled brat adults who think the rules don't apply to them, because they never have.  Sums up our current dilemma rather nicely but unfortunately doesn't offer much in the way of solace at this point.  The way out of this quagmire nightmare isn't going to be easy, but it is possible.  It comes down, as always to a simple choice.  You can choose to know, or to deny You can choose to act, or be the deer in the headlights.  The choice is yours!

Knowledge is power ~ Ignorance is bliss.  Pick one!

Legend of Augureye Express

"Knowledge is Power~Ignorance is Bliss...Pick One"






Chautauqua's Picks


(First known use in 14th Century)

An augur holding alituus, the curved wand often used as a symbol of augury on roman coins

The Augur was a priest, and official in the ancient world, most notably in Rome.  His main role was the practice of augury; interpreting the will of the gods by studying the flight and habits of birds.  This was known as "taking the auspices."  The ceremony and function of the augur was central to any major undertaking in Roman society; public or private, including war, commerce and religion.  The Roman historian Livy stresses the importance of the augurs: "Who does not know that this city was founded only after taking the auspices, that everything in war and peace at home and abroad was done only after taking the auspices."
