  1. I read Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 at nine years old, it was a particularly difficult time in my life,, and that book fundamentally altered, my view of the world. I will always be thankful to him for that!
  2. Propaganda War

    China is fighting a propaganda war. Beijing's plan is to shift all blame from China for the initial botched response concerning the outbreak. The communist government is claiming that it has largely controlled the epidemic, even as it suspiciously now blames “foreign arrivals” for new cases of virus. Videos smuggled out from China shows huge lines at a hospital in Chongqing, raising questions about just what is happening around the country. What Beijing cares about is clear from its sustained war on global public opinion. Chinese mouthpieces have launched a broad attack against the facts, attempting to rewrite history. Chinese state media is touting the government’s effective governance. The truth is that Beijing dropped the ball early on because of long-standing CCP policy. Chinese officials knew about the new virus back in early December, and did nothing early on except to persecute their true heroes sounding the alarm! China also has enablers abroad helping to whitewash Beijing’s culpability. The World Health Organization refused for months to declare a pandemic, and instead thanked China for “making us safer,” a comment straight out of an Orwell novel. Most egregiously, some Chinese government officials have gone so far as to state that the Wuhan virus was not indigenous to China at all. The reality is that China did not tell its own people about the risk for weeks and refused to let in major foreign epidemiological teams, including from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. Thus, the world could not get accurate information and laboratory samples early on. Because of China’s initial failures, governments around the world, including democratic ones, now are being forced to take extreme actions that mimic many of Beijing’s authoritarian tendencies,. Not least of the changes proposed will be in more invasive, digital surveillance of citizens, (public safety has always been the main venue to curb freedom and we all need to keep that in mind as the world transforms around us), so as to be able to better track and stop the spread of future epidemics, a step that WILL NOT be necessary, yet it will be an argument parroted by most government because, of Beijing's slipshod incompetence.
  3. Hello all, I am going to skip past all the times I have seen the future without someone to corroborate the facts. So, I will be talking of the times I have seen future events, told/warned the parties involved in these events, and then it has happened according to the way I saw it happen. A confirmed, but rather uncontrolled, vision. The reason for these visions is always unclear. They are rarely something major or important. I can not command them or control them. I am simply a witness. What is clear, is that certain things are set to happen, regardless of warnings or ways of trying to stop them, or change them. The future then, is already decided and we are simply carrying out the play like actors on a stage, puppets if you will, of things we have no control over. This is very important to understand. Because if it is true that the future is decided, we actually have no free will, we actually make no real choices, since those have already been decided and determined. I don't believe, if you understand what I mean. I know it to be a fact. So this is part of how the world "is" for me. I am not speculating or guessing. For things to happen, the way they happen, at the time they happen, all other things have to fall into place. I don't see the butterfly effect, or any way to really change it. Looking at it doesn't change it. Telling people doesn't change it. Trying to intervene is always not successful. In the sense of making it to heaven or hell, already decided before you were born. Seems rather unfair, doesn't it? In the sense of your "karma" and how you are punished, according to your "decisions" or "personal choices", already decided for you. Again, very unfair... We are puppets in this world view, with no way out, no way to make our own life, or our own decisions. Otherwise, how can visions of the future come true? How can prophecy be real? A simple example for you: I woke one morning straight out of a prophecy dream, which is different kind of dream because I am simply a witness to events, and I know they are coming, and not past, without knowing how or why I know this. On this morning, it involved one of the trucks at work. I arrived, made some coffee. The driver showed up, in a hurry, running late. I offered him a cup of coffee and asked if he wanted a bite to eat before heading out, to see if I could change the events. He said no, grabbed his coffee mug, and headed out. I said, you are not going to get very far today. He gave me an annoyed look, having seen my abilities first hand in the past. I heard the truck start and leave. I started making some eggs, enough for two. Within a few minutes, what I had seen was happening, there comes the truck, lurching and smoking, puff! bang! He came into the place, put his coffee down, and sat down. I have him a plate of eggs and smiled. He said, "I hate it when you are right...", and we both laughed. I had seen and heard the truck breaking down that morning. It is not an important thing, very trivial and very personal to us and the job of the day. So why that? The only outcome is that I am reminded that nothing is chance, everything is already decided. It has all already happened. Who is driving this? Who is creating the future? Are we pulling our own strings and then living it after we set it up? Is it some other force? Are we confused as to the flow of real time? Stay fluid
  4. Predictions for the future. The first rule of Prediction Club is there are no rules for prediction club, except these: Rule 1, Include sort of time table. When will the thing might happen or some sort of schedule. Rule 2, Try to make it some what exact. Too fuzzy and a prediction is worthless, ie I predict a war in the middle east; wow what are the odds, be more exact with who and a rough time table. Rule 3. Keep it civil. son of a bitch, I meant to put this in Off Topic.. moderator?? later edit> thank u.

  7. You sometimes will see that there are people these days who always like to portray the past religions and past spiritual traditions in a negative light. They like to blame the stumbling blocks, limitations, and mistakes in human history on Spirituality and Religion. However, in reality humanity is simply growing and progressing over time. Ultimately, building on the foundations of the past, progress is always made, and greater and greater understandings towards a higher spiritual ideal are ultimately realized. 3 major paradigm shifts in Human History- http://childrenofthe...lisone-paradigm Glossary of terms for the new millennium and future paradigms- http://thegreatwhite...org/Amenti.html
