So very shortly after publishing my previous post about Skyborg and comparisons with Skynet, I checked out one of my feeds to see this article, titled “AI disaster won’t look like the Terminator. It’ll be creepier.”
So I’ve been in a bit of a conundrum lately regarding this blog. It seems silly, especially considering the fact that so few people are actually reading it currently, but I’ve been torn as to whether I should post here as if I am trying to gain viewership, and filter all my choices through the lens of questions like “I wonder if people will like this post? Maybe I shouldn’t post again today – I don’t want to bug people?” and so on. I mean honestly, I would like to one day have enough followers, or a book deal, or something similar that would allow me to make a living writing. But should I actually write for that purpose? Should that be my main concern when I post stuff? I came to the conclusion this morning that no – no it shouldn’t be.
I write because I love to write, and I share the articles and posts I find because I like to spread awareness. I don’t do this for money (thank God, because I would be destitute right now if that was the case! Lol), I do it because I love to do it. I was thinking to myself this morning – I will continue to write whether or not I make it as a big-time writer one day. It’s not like at some point I would ever say, “well, I’m not making any money off this – time to try my hat at something else.” It’s not like that at all. I write because I enjoy it, and in some sense, have been compelled to do it. For many years, I wrote poetry – a LOT of poetry – which was ironic because I honestly couldn’t stand poetry lol. But the thoughts, the words and verses would come to me so strongly that I couldn’t not write them down – I was truly compelled. And it is often times that way with my writing still. To be certain, there are plenty of times I’m just writing casually too. But my best stuff always comes through me – not from me.
So starting today, I am going to cut loose and just post whatever I want, whenever I want, and if people don’t like it, tough! Lol. Like I said, it’s not like I have a readership of thousands who will be disappointed or something. I think I do have a few followers, and to you, I say thank you from the very depth of my soul. My dream has always been to share my thoughts with someone other than myself, my family, and my dog. Oh, who am I kidding – he’s way too into food blogs to take any interest in this science and spirituality stuff haha! My ultimate dream, as I have stated before, is to write my book. I have lived a pretty interesting life, experienced some pretty awesome stuff, and gained just a few grains of wisdom that I would love to share with the world. And I can do just that, a grain at a time, right here, right now.
I was thinking this morning about my belief that everything is connected, and how that is really not just some sappy hippie saying – “like, everything is connected man…” – but a scientific truth; it has to be if we are to believe science – cosmology and quantum physics. Cosmologists tell us that the universe started with the big bang, and that at one point – literally and figuratively – everything in our universe was condensed in an infinitely dense point – a singularity. Something caused that point to explode fantastically and eventually spread out to create all matter, all that is in our current universe. And because the laws of physics state that matter cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed, it stands to reason that every single thing is ultimately derived from the evolution of our universe that started with that process.
Now, if my understanding of quantum physics is correct, it would seem that at some point it time, right after that process started, all of the early particles that would go on to form various forms of matter and energy would have been entangled, because they issued forth from a common origin – one in which they were compressed to such a point that it would be hard to believe they could not have been entangled. And because everything that came after was derived from those early entangled particles, it seems it would stand to reason that every particle in the universe is entangled. And because matter is not destroyed or created but transformed, it would further stand to reason that the particles that make up our current universe are some of those very same particles – they have to be – and therefore, all particles in our universe are entangled. That seems to make sense to me, but I’m sure some materialist scientist could set me straight and tell my how I’m wrong. But honestly, sure seems like the reasoning is pretty solid, given what they purport to believe.
And all of that means that, scientifically speaking, every single thing – every person, every living creature, every rock, bacteria, cloud, wave, star – everything is quantum entangled at the deepest level; everything really IS connected! Of course the great mystics have told us that for years, but science and the priests of materialism assured us that was all mumbo jumbo, and that certainly, nothing was connected in such a manner. And our world society, our environmental policies, our social policies, our laws and associated economies were all built around that supposition. But what if everything really is connected..? Or more accurately – how much better could we make our world if we believed, and acted as if we believed the TRUTH that everything really IS connected at a very deep, very fundamental level..?
I think things are happening now that are going to usher in a new age of awareness: quantum physics, AI, CRISPR, quantum computing, astronomy, neuroscience, etc. Advances in all of these fields are pointing to an underlying layer of reality, belief in which has caused mystics and seers to be marginalized, made fun of, shamed and relegated to the slums of respectability for many, many years. But as science digs deeper and deeper into the foundations of our reality, they are finding out that it is much more fluid than they would like to believe. You know what I would really love to do? I would love to set an advanced instance of AI loose on some esoteric wisdom, psychology and neuroscience and see what it would come up with. Think about how it found an ancestor in our past that we were completely unaware of. Just imagine what kind of analogy might happen in those other realms.
It’s kind of interesting in an esoteric correspondence kind of way that next year is 2020. Might we finally see clearly for the first time in our collective lives…? I sure hope and pray so, and know many, many others do too.
The title of this post probably sounds like something filled with hype, but considering this article, is it really? A scientist in China was revealed to have edited the genes of twins that were born last year using CRISPR technology to supposedly protect them from some kind of birth defect, and it is now being revealed that the same procedure may have led to superior mental abilities for the twins.
The article states that “The genetically-modified Chinese twins born resistant to HIV last year may also have mental ‘superpowers’ their creator has kept quiet – a cognitive superiority that could kick off a genetic arms race, according to new research.” But when asked about the possibility that the deletion of the gene could possibly lead to superior cognition and memory, “the Chinese researcher insisted that wasn’t his intention. ‘I am against using genome editing for enhancement,’ He told a genetics conference a week after the twins were born, though he admitted he was aware of research on the effects of CCR5-deactivation on the brain.” I trust him totally – I mean, why would he lie about that, right? Riiiiight.
The point here is not whether he knew or not, whether it’s ethical or not – the point is that it is now actually possible to perform such procedures, and that it is actually being done. More accurately, the fact that it is being done has now been released to the public. I’m fairly certain though, as I’m sure others are, that this had been done long before the publication about the Chinese researcher. As I always say in my current career when asked if something is possible or not: given enough time and money, we can do pretty much anything. And there’s no doubt that there are plenty of people out there with enough money and influence to have tried this already. The fact that it made it to public release simply signals that it is happening on a more widespread basis.
I’m sure to some this may sound like “conspiracy nuttiness,” and perhaps it does. And I am the first to admit that I do lean towards conspiracy thinking on a number of issues. But I should clarify only on the ones that are scientifically possible or plausible (no flat earth, no reptilians, NO alt-right crap about races or anything), such as some of the ancient alien stuff, NWO, free energy being repressed (think Tesla – Nikola, not Elon), etc. But we know that certain technologies like GPS were known of and used by the government and the military long before they were released for public use. And in today’s world, where money is king, even above governmental power, there’s little reason to believe that a person with significant capital couldn’t procure the services and technology of another scientist in possibly the same or another country.
What does this mean for all of us? Well, the way I see it, it means that the stratification between the wealthy and the poor or middle class will only get more pronounced – that is, if nothing else fundamentally changes. But the whole point of this blog, of my whole like really, is that something can, needs to, and WILL change fundamentally if only we believe it can and work to make it happen in alignment with the will of the Spirit. In other words, as I have been saying, it’s time for the rebirth of True Magick – the kind that can stand against the darkness that the love of money and wealth is spreading. There is much more to write on this, but suffice it to say that the OQM (Order of Quantum Monism) is something that needs to happen sooner than later. I am putting the intention out to the Universe, putting out a call for help if you will, to aid me in getting this thing started off. I am humble enough to know I need help and to ask – I only hope my prayer will be answered. And if it could be soon, that would be great…. yyyeaahhh.
That’s the question that is burning in my mind this morning after waking up at 4am with thoughts about the book coming very, very strongly to me. I so wished I would have had the opportunity to jump out of bed and write down the stuff that was coming to me. Honestly, I could have – there was nothing really stopping me. The major concepts, the ideas to talk about, the purpose, the intro and title – it was all there. I felt for the first time since all this started happening again that I know exactly what I want to write about.
And more than that, I thought about how to speak to it, how to market it, “add-ons,” like a corresponding mobile app.. basically an entire business plan of sorts. Of course when I say “business,” I don’t necessarily mean it in the sense that the business world thinks of it. I don’t have some plan to market something that will make people a ton of money. I mean, I do think the book will be very successful, especially given the trick marketing campaign I have thought up (or has come to me maybe I should say). I even have an idea for a little “shtick” that will make it extra cool to all the millenials and young whippersnappers out there – a cool hashtag. Now, the trick is getting the funding to take the time I want to dedicate to really put all this stuff together.
I have been trying and trying to remember a site I had posted something to back in 2012 seeking investors for my “alternative community” that would survive 2012 lol. It was a pretty neat site, and while I obviously didn’t attract any investors, it was easy to use and seemed like it would fit the purpose I need now. I know there are people out there who write books while they are working their 9 to 5 jobs, and if I were better at multi-tasking, perhaps I could do that too. The thing is, I am having to take time away from my “real” job to write this stuff as the inspiration comes, and it honestly doesn’t feel good – it’s not right. At the same time, I am being compelled to write this stuff very strongly now, so I find myself in a bit of a conundrum.
I even thought this morning about taking a huge risk and seeing if I could get a small business loan for $250K. I’m fairly certain I could think up something web-based to get it. The thing is, I am terrified of what happens if I don’t succeed, then I owe all that money, and having been out of the field for a year, have a tough time getting back into the labor market. Part of me says “you know you can do it! Take the chance!” The other part of me says “are you crazy? You have a wife, kids, animals to feed and house – you can’t afford to risk their security like that!” So what am I to do…?
Again this morning, I made my plea to the Universe for a break of some kind. Honestly, it was a bit of a teary one, because I feel this so deeply, right down to the very core of my being – the person I have been since I can remember, and the thing I always wanted to do. It seems every time I read the story of someone who “made it,” they had some kind of small break – someone noticed them, or encouraged them, or something along those lines. I am really praying for my break. I remember back in ’90 when I quit my job at the bank and went to live with Willy to write my book. And I did just that. I spent many hours at his computer, organizing all of my works, typing them up, and putting rough drafts together to send out. And I did just that – sent them out to 10-11 different publishers. So it’s not like I haven’t done it before, and not like I wouldn’t actually complete the work. The difference is back then, I was young and single and could work like 20 hours a week so I would have time to write the book. I don’t really have that option now – not if I want to keep my family clothed, fed and sheltered.
I’m not sure what’s going to happen, but I am trying to do my part to make something happen. I have this blog I am actively posting to, I have my website that I am working on, I created a profile on writers.work, and am now trying to figure out how to secure some funding. I just need the Universe to do me a solid and give me a little “break” of some kind. The past few days, whenever I have prayed about something, it has been wild the way the Universe has answered; yesterday, finding the article about quantum monism; today, looking in my gmail inbox to see an email from David Wilcox talking about “going deeper.” I wonder what today will hold…?
Seriously. Just take a look at a few of the headlines from the world of physics over the last few days:
Now is it just me, or does that all sound like something straight out of either a science fiction book, or…??? Reversing time, no objective reality, some “mysterious energy field” tampering with the early universe. I mean, this is some pretty metaphysical stuff here if you ask me! The best part? These aren’t articles published on some new age blog, or in Deepak Chopra’s latest book. No, these are straight from the very bowels of the greats halls of physics : the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, MIT, etc. These are articles published in some of the most respected peer-reviewed science journals; they’re real; they’re LEGIT.
Now of course the militant materialists will say “just hold up a minute – these don’t mean anything. They only apply in very specific, limited scenarios, and only when working with very small numbers of particles, in carefully controlled conditions – you can’t make any inferences to real world stuff based on this.” And you know what I say to that? Well, you KNOW what I say to that – BS! Because the fact is, quantum computing wouldn’t even WORK if it weren’t for these principles. So take that you miserable atheistic skeptics! Lol. I mean, you’re ok postulating that there is a infinite number of universes, and every single time every single person makes any decision, an entirely new universe splits off, such that there are innumerable ones being created every moment – you’re ok with that, but REVOLTED when anyone even suggests that there might be something to the whole spiritual side of life… that there might just be some greater power, some creative force, some higher consciousness. I can’t stand the pretentiousness and hypocrisy of it all.
But the thing is, the great thing, I believe the more and more they go down the quantum rabbit hole, the more they probe the very foundation of reality, the more they are going to find that the mystics were really onto something, and that all of their staunch denial and plain ol’ nastiness towards us was completely misplaced. I mean, check out these sentences from the article on futurism.com about the early universe:
“The hypothesis, according to research first shared on the preprint server ArXiv in November, goes as follows: When the universe was just a mere 100,000 years old, a mysterious energy field that scientists are calling ‘early dark energy’ formed, rapidly pushing the still-forming cosmos outward even faster than before.Another 100,000 years after that, the research suggests, the strange energy field faded away — and left the young, accelerated universe to its own devices.”
A “mysterious energy field”…. “early dark energy”… How does that not sound somewhat mystical? And now, simple ol’ dark energy, their go-to explanation for why there is so much missing mass in the universe given their calculations using the known laws of science and physics – now that doesn’t work completely to explain why the universe is expanding more quickly than it should, again, given their calculations, so they have to come up with ANOTHER “mysterious force.” We are supposed to be ok with that, because they are scientists after all. But God forbid we try to actually TALK about that mysterious force and make any type of connection to anything that isn’t within their domain. What a bunch of arrogant, closed-minded twits they can be!
Anyway, I could – and will! lol – rant about this more. But for now, I want to leave with this thought: the most important part of all this to me is the fact that this stuff is REAL. It is POSSIBLE. They are PROVING it. The arrow of time moving in the opposite direction… objective reality being different for 2 observers looking at the same thing… a mysterious energy that seemed to give the early universe the little “push” it needed to birth all of known creation. If we let those thoughts penetrate into our consciousness, they can help break down some of the doubt and skepticism that keep our minds chained up to materialism. We need to reprogram our minds, reprogram our consciousness to BELIEVE that Magick IS REAL. We need to reconnect to the Eternal Breath that connects us to the very Spirit of the Universe and remember who we really are. How beautifully ironic to think that science, in its quest to disprove God is actually doing just the opposite, and exposing the Ultimate Truth that the mystics have always known. What a miraculous time to be alive!
Many a moon ago, I fancied myself quite the Tarot reader. Actually, to be more honest, other people considered me to be so. I enjoyed the cards and did readings for friends and myself. I was pleasantly surprised at how often people reacted in an almost astonished manner, feeling as if the cards were literally speaking to them. It’s been at least 20 years since I last did anything with them. But something compelled me to get some more, and so I did.
It’s always important with stuff like this to “charge” it – infuse it with energy of an appropriate kind. I have found that when I am “in the Flow,” it’s best to go with my gut, not necessarily what some book on the occult says, and follow the method that is guiding me. Here, I have 3 of my most meaningful pendants, a galaxy crystal ball on the crown, and Horus and Isis on each side. Rather than explain everything, I’ll let you look at it and ponder what it means to you – or what you think it means.
If you feel compelled, leave a comment with your explanation. Your answer is probably more accurate than mine – since I don’t know what mine is! Lol
I say reappearance, because I don’t think Magick ever died – it just hadn’t appeared in my life very much since getting sober – at least not in a way that made me go “wow!” Of course that’s not to say that getting and staying sober wasn’t (isn’t) a miracle, because it absolutely is – one I get to experience every single day. But as someone who has experienced some pretty powerful experiences – the “coin-incidence” and all that went along with it being the biggest example – I know what it’s like to feel as if I am witnessing actual magic – like the emergence of something beyond explanation in a meaningful way in my life, in this world, and it is – well, magical lol.
For a long time, I went between being depressed, thinking I would never again be able to experience those kind of peak experiences because I wasn’t going to take mind altering substances anymore, to being very angry at God/Great Spirit/Higher Power/Universe/Whatever for those same reasons. It seemed extremely unfair to me to think that I would have to give up the thing that I valued most in the world, true mystical spiritual experiences, because I was now sober – as if being punished for doing what I though, what I KNOW, is the right thing. I mean, why should anyone who is deeply spiritual be punished and deprived of those experiences? I just didn’t understand. But there is plenty of literature out there that says many shamans, medicine men, etc, use(d) psychedelics to achieved altered states so they can experience those things. I truly hoped that it wasn’t a necessity.
Then, about a year ago, maybe a little more, little synchronicities starting happening again; little situations arose that pricked up my ears; coincidences that went beyond the normal occurred, more than just once. And so I started getting that old feeling again, that I was back in the “flow” of Spirit, of Universal Consciousness, and that I was once again on the Mystic Path.
