The party of unity and healing: "Those who disagree are not people"

Image
I posted previously that American liberalism is fascist , and conservatism is in fact liberal. A conservative wants freedom; a "liberal" wants to punish people who do not follow the liberal diktat. Along these lines, the same party that spent the past 4-5 years demonizing Trump and those who support him is now sanctimonously announcing "unity and healing". Just as soon as Biden takes command. Pinky promise! It's just unfortunate how the unity and healing looks remarkably like dehumanizing those who would disagree. In the Washington Post, owned by Amazon billionaire Jeff Bezos: On Reddit, owned by the New York Newhouse family, not to mention a $150 million investment by China's Tencent: Folks: if you are in favor of election integrity, you are a rat, a psychopath, an authoritarian, and not a person. The only kind of "unity and healing" we can have is if the corporate state and its outlets are completely wiped out . This must be a wiping o

Seth on Buddhism

Image
Striking passage on Buddhism in The Early Sessions: Book 4 of the Seth Material . Session 177, August 11, 1965: "It is natural then that such a study will involve us in many allied matters. I may say that Buddhism does indeed come closer in essence to reality than other religions. However, the Buddhists either have not gone far enough, or have gone too far, according to your viewpoint. If they have gone too far, then they have been so concerned with inner reality that they have become too tolerant of physical disease and disasters. If they have not gone far enough, then they have not followed through sufficiently so that these physical disasters could truly be suffered without pain. They have the knowledge to a very large degree, but they have fallen short. It is one thing to realize that all physical matter is camouflage, and they know this. But this camouflage can be most disastrous if it is not manipulated correctly. You are in no position to ignore it. You are in a posit

Amazing Covid-19 tests in China!

Image
While we struggle with our Covid-19 tests which all have significant proportions of false positives and/or false negatives, China has these brilliant, amazing tests where they test 7.64 million people in 4 days, and have zero false positives. Apparently, they also don't worry about any false negatives, which are normally part of a PCR test low in false positives. The Chinese bureaucrats who conducted this exercise are absolutely unconcerned with the actual reality of the virus. Instead, they are ensuring the appearance of "no virus". They can do this because Covid-19 is so relatively harmless that its existence in the population cannot be distinguished from the flu, as long as the state media claim there is no Covid-19. All the testing circus goes to support this point and reassure everyone. This is how they keep their economy open, while their corporate lackeys influence our media so that we tank ours.

Liberalism is fascism; conservatism is liberalism

Image
There are two ways to think about your locus of control. One is empowering, the other is disempowering. One is to believe your locus of control is inside you: you have both the power and responsibility to decide your outcomes. The other is a victim narrative: it is not you who are at fault; it's other people, it is things that have been "done" to you. The victim narrative is self short-circuiting. If other people are at fault for my actions which have led to my outcomes, then who's at fault for them acting that way toward me? If we're consistent, the fault for other people's actions must be with still other people. So nothing that happens is actually anyone's responsibility, and nothing can be done about that at all. American liberals instinctively recognize that this won't do after all, someone must eventually be held responsible for their actions. This ends up being a majority scapegoat. White people, especially white men, must be at fault for

What you don't see on CNN

Image
You really should follow TheDonald.win , otherwise the corporate media will completely brainwash you into a distorted picture of reality. Here's the kind of video you're not going to see on CNN, or any major media outlet. YouTube's policy is to outright delete it, even if it is testimony in front of the Senate: According to CNN, you should not trust this because it's on OAN. Only CNN has the truth, you see. You might also watch this for a brief idea of the shenanigans at play: This one is on YouTube, and of course carries their disinformation banners. The people involved in all these cover-ups, silencing and creation of false narratives need to be mass-arrested and marched to prison. And they need to stay there for very long times indeed.

The value of intellect

Image
If it turns out these people were right all along; and that we, haughty with pride in our reason and intellect, were wrong; what does this say about the value of this intellect? If all of our rationalizations lead us to the wrong conclusion about this big a thing – what is the value of these rationalizations?

Experiments on humanity: Fertility effects of vaccines

Image
From a Slovenian you don't know, but the message matters: [Translation] Yesterday I found an interview with a researcher working on the Oxford version of the vaccine and a sentence which he carelessly and casually mouthed, specifically that the vaccine will sterilize “only” 70% of the population, sounded so incredible to me, I thought I must have misunderstood. I therefore asked dr. Pušenjak for an explanation. I received a reply which shocked me even more and which cannot be missed 📷 “There's not much to comment, it's all clearly stated. The vaccines in approximately 2/3 of cases (70%) cause formation of antibodies against a surface protein of the virus Sars-cov-2, which is similar or identical to the protein syncytin-1, which is important in fertility and in the placenta, which means the immune system may attack own structures in the ovary of the woman and in the placenta of the fetus, which are important for the continuation of the species. In other words, abo

Lin Wood's impenetrable fearlessness

Image
In this recent tweet (image below), Lin shows a rarely understood fearlessness. It seems irrational. If there's such coordination as we're seeing, if it's so brazen and malicious, shouldn't we tremble in fear? 😲 Some people do! The truth as I understand it is, we each create our own reality. But we externalize our locus of control. We think we're victims of external events which affect us! We are not victims of such events. We choose them. The choices are made by the inner self, but they're based on emotions and beliefs which are accessible to the externally conscious ego. Lin is untouchable, in that he creates his own reality. If you fear that he might die, you might experience it. But that is your chosen event. He has his faith, which is impenetrable. It's key that positive expectations are always stronger than negative ones. If this were not the case, the world would have been destroyed many times over. In fact it has been, and it is – for tho

The US corporatocracy: A proto-totalitarianism

Image
The US is becoming no longer a democracy. It is supposed to be a republic. In fact, it has become a corporatocracy. In 2014, a study by professors at Princeton and Northwestern looked into how what people want correlates with what politicians do. They found this correlation is low. Meanwhile, there was a strong relationship between what politicians do and what the corporate elites want them to do. They concluded the US is an oligarcy . The people elect politicians, but the politicians serve corporate elites, whose policies are consistently something other than what people want. Over 50% of the American workforce are employed by 0.4% of businesses. Most of these are C corporations. So the US corporatocracy controls politicians, and dominates the livelihoods of half the population. Moreover, all major US media and technology is now controlled by a handful of corporations, and these limit what you can see and hear. The media and tech giants are not somehow run "by the peop

The corporate coup: As predicted in July

Image
It comes to mind there's a (single-digit) number of people who check my blog and don't see my Facebook. If that's you, here are screenshots I took of this Twitter thread , posted July 21, 2020. Events are now happening mostly as predicted:

This is the choice

Image
Folks seem to be oblivious to the seriousness of this situation. This is the last stand for democracy anywhere in the world. You can have fair elections in Elbonia, but that doesn't matter one fig's leaf if the world's only liberal superpower is unrecoverably corrupt, with no path back to liberalism. The one alternative is China, which is the same. This is the hill to die on. This is the turning point. From this point onward, there is totalitarianism vs. freedom. You have to choose. Unfortunately, many are choosing unwisely, and do not even realize the choice. Climax of decades What's happening now is not a culmination of 4 years, it's a culmination of 20+ years, with a climax to match. The overt brainwashing we're seeing in media nowadays, Fox coming out as an alter ego of CNN, a complete blackout on true things that are happening – the people behind this propaganda machine are now fighting for their lives, so this is the most overt lying I've s

Listening to experts

Image
We're always being told to listen to experts. So listen to this one : Noting that he was also an expert in virology, Hodkinson pointed out that his role as CEO of a biotech company that manufactures COVID tests means, “I might know a little bit about all this.” “There is utterly unfounded public hysteria driven by the media and politicians, it’s outrageous, this is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on an unsuspecting public,” said Hodkinson. The doctor said that nothing could be done to stop the spread of the virus besides protecting older more vulnerable people and that the whole situation represented “politics playing medicine, and that’s a very dangerous game.” Hodkinson remarked that “social distancing is useless because COVID is spread by aerosols which travel 30 meters or so before landing,” as he called for society to be re-opened immediately to prevent the debilitating damage being caused by lockdowns. Hodkinson also slammed mandatory mask mandates as comp

Racism in a nutshell

Image
Suppose the mood strikes you and you're looking for casual sex. You go to a club, and the club has two rooms. Each room has 100 people, who are on average similarly attractive. At the entrance, you are given this bit of information: In room #1, there are 99 healthy people, but also one with a sexually transmitted disease. In room #2, there are 90 healthy people, but also 10 with a sexually transmitted disease. You can visit room #1, or room #2, or both. As you prefer. Given the above information, tell me you're not going to restrict yourself to the people in room #1 only. This is racism. You could also visit room #2. There are 90 healthy people in there. Maybe your soulmate is there. But you won't. Now for a small tweak. Imagine, instead of each room with 100 people, the rooms are like this: In room #1, there are 900 people, and 9 of them have an STD. In room #2, there are still 100 people, and 10 of them have an STD. Now the decision is even cleare

Facebook and Twitter interfering with the election

Wow, this is big. Facebook and Twitter are actively obstructing reporting that could influence the US presidential election. They are going so far as to suspend the accounts of the New York Post and the White House press secretary. Notice Twitter's policy "prohibiting publishing hacked materials" . That sure sounds like a convenient policy that doesn't benefit anyone in particular! From the Washington Post : Facebook and Twitter took unusual steps Wednesday to limit readership of an article by the New York Post about alleged emails from Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, one of the rare occasions they have sanctioned a traditional media outlet. The social media giants took that action before verifying the contents of the article, in which President Trump‘s personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani and his former top adviser Stephen K. Bannon claimed to have obtained and leaked a trove of private materials from Hunter Biden. The leaked documents suggeste

Sun angle, vitamin D and UVB

Image
In my previous post on this topic, I summarized the difficulty of maintaining adequate vitamin D levels, and how nearly everyone in Western civilization lacks enough. All of the risk groups for Covid-19 are people who are lower than most in vitamin D, and the average is already catastrophic. Some of the lowest vitamin D levels can be found in seniors, people with darker skin, and the obese. All of these correlate with a much higher rate of Covid-19 infections and complications. A commonly accepted idea is that the sun needs to be at least 50° above the horizon if you want to generate "any" vitamin D. If you do a quick search, Google will reinforce this. If the sun angle is lower, the UVB portion of ultraviolet light will "reflect" from the atmosphere, and no vitamin D for you! I've found this study by M. El-Nouby Adam, Effect of The Atmosphere on UVB Radiation Reaching the Earth's Surface: Dependence on Solar Zenith Angle , which suggests such popular

The reality simulator

Image
( Image : George Redhawk) Summary of a dream I just had. The text below, that is. :) A friend takes you to a reality simulator so real, after you enter it you can't tell whether you're experiencing "real" reality or not, except for a few key details and tests which can tell you it's a simulation. Except, you're in college and the "friend" who is introducing you to the simulator enjoys practical jokes. He tweaks or makes up information about the safety details so they don't work in the simulation (making you think it's real until something impossible occurs), and so he can simulate it working in the "real" reality (making you think it's simulated). Then he proceeds to torture you / mind fuck you. He confuses you completely about what's real and not real, repeatedly getting you to "exit" from the simulation and think you're in the real world for a bit, only to reveal you're still inside. Maybe one of

Vitamin D and Covid

Image
By now, we have several studies showing a strong correlation between vitamin D deficiency and the (a) Covid-19 infection rate, and (b) Covid-19 complications. Here's a study from Boston University and Quest Diagnostics. Here's one from the University of Chicago. Here's one from the University of Birmingham (UK). Sample finding: At the same time, we have skeptics like Leonid Schneider , who can't believe a major factor in Covid-19 could be something that simple. He ridicules vitamin D because it's associated with "natural cures", since Schneider despises placebos. He doesn't understand that placebo and nocebo are much more important than he imagines; that a major way chemotherapy works is as a more convincing placebo. (For people who don't believe simple cures work, medicine has to cost them.) If he's proven wrong, he'll find excuses. And if he did not, he will not be able to pay for the damage of these beliefs. Now, the reason so

And now for gratuitous political views about the election

Image
I saw someone today – ostensibly a non-US person – comment like this: For the sake of the rest of the planet you should be voting Biden. [...] I do hope you're not voting based on a single issue, it needs to be the whole picture. Obviously, I now must dispense my wisdom. 😄 Unfortunately, "the whole picture" is something like this. Regardless of who wins: Covid will unfold the way it's unfolding. The US has had 7.6 million confirmed cases. That means tens of millions of actual infections. Community spread will continue until it arrives at a natural end. Any attempt to slow it more than is necessary for hospitals to function will delay arrival at the natural end. A "natural end" means the super-spreaders will get it and get over it. That's mostly young people who won't suffer much from it. The virus will continue to circulate, people will wear masks but hospitalizations and deaths will return to a previous average without forceful top-down me

Summarizing Seth: The structure of the self

This is part of a series of posts where I try to summarize the Seth Material . First post: Table of contents Previous post: Introduction Behold, my MS Paint skills. (I like simple tools 🙂) This diagram represents my current best understanding of the relationships between the elements of "ourselves". The spacious present The fundamental reality can be described as a spacious present. This does not have time or space as we imagine them. There is a concept of time, but it is psychological and much more flexible than we imagine. The spacious present can be thought of as ever expanding, but not how we think space expands. It expands like an idea: like inspiration becomes a sentence, a sentence becomes a paragraph, and a paragraph becomes a novel. There are no limits to this expansion, and the expansion is blazingly fast. Entity An entity exists in the spacious present. It cannot exist in a physical universe. It explores different realities by spawning

Summarizing Seth: Introduction

This is part of a series of posts where I try to summarize the Seth Material . First post: Table of contents Next post: The structure of the self Seth is the chosen name of a personality channeled by American writer and poet Jane Roberts over a period of 21 years, starting in late 1963 and until her death in 1984. Most sessions were dictated to her husband, Robert Butts, but many were held in front of a small audience of interested students. A small proportion of the sessions were recorded on tape, and an even smaller proportion were recorded and remain available on video . The bulk of the material was written down by Robert on pen and paper, then later typed. The material spans over 20 published books and can be argued to represent the life work of Jane and Robert, in addition to their other published work. Both the published and unpublished material is now stored in the Yale University Library Archival Collection. The books are available in physical as well as electroni

The Swedish success with Covid continues...

Image
... while at the same time, it's being called a failure – by media in other countries cheering for top-down control. Yes, so far they've had more deaths per capita. Partly, they could have done more to protect the elderly. But importantly, they crossed the hump before other countries, and had their deaths and hospitalizations in one go. There were predictions, for Sweden, that the new school year would surely cause a large new wave of hospitalizations. Maybe this is still coming, but 6 weeks into the school year, not so : Meanwhile, other countries – Britain , France , as well as Slovenia, out of those of which I know – show inability to learn from Sweden, and are preparing for new harsh measures that will surely be economically "helpful". Of course, the UK Members of Parliament at first instituted a separate set of rules for themselves. They exempted UK Parliament bars from the 10 pm curfew, or from drinkers having to register their name and address fo
