Despite Google’s dictum of “Don’t Be Evil,” the company has suspiciously aligned itself with the grand ambitions of American imperialism, with its executive chairman Eric Schmidt attending the infamous Bilderberg conference in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013. Schmidt also has a listed membership with the Trilateral Commission.

Far more disturbing, however, is Google participation in what appears to be a totalitarian ambition to create a New World Order under a superconscious computer likened to God.  See hereherehere, and here for more. While it may sound like science fiction, Google execs have been advancing the cause of “technological singularity,” and the advent of superhuman intelligence, known as “transhumanism.”

These delusional ambitions have their origin in the CIA-sponsored Cybernetics Group, formed about the Macy Conferences of the 40s and 50s. They were inheritors of the mad scientists of the Frankfurt School, a group of neo-Freudians who manufactured the foundations of American popular culture. Beginning with the 60s counterculture, it fostered the rise of the “personal computer,” which grew out of the CIA”s MK-Ultra program for the proliferation of LSD.

It would be through the aid of powerful psychedelics that the transhumanists would be aided in developing a delusional wonderment with this completely implausible scenario of a conscious computer.

These aspirations are outgrowths of the Kabbalah, according to which human intellectual history is that of man evolving to become God. From its origins with Isaac Luria in the sixteenth century, the idea has now evolved so that it is proposed that humans will become gods, by achieving the ultimate divine feat, creating intelligent life, in the form of a supercomputer.

The technological singularity, or simply the singularity, is a hypothetical moment in time when artificial intelligence will have progressed to the point of a greater-than-human intelligence, radically changing civilization, and perhaps human nature. Because the capabilities of such an intelligence may be difficult for a human to comprehend, the technological singularity is often seen as an occurrence beyond which the future course of human history is unpredictable or even unfathomable.

The use of the term "transhuman" goes back to Jesuit priest, philosopher and paleontologist Pierre Teilhard de Chardin., the "Catholic Darwin," who through his postulation that man would create the Noosphere, a supreme consciousness, is often regarded as the patron saint of the internet.

Teilhard applied the scientific concept of evolution to the Christian notion of spiritual rapture, believing that technology would bring about the ultimate spiritual evolution of mankind. According to him, this is the work of Christ. Teilhard's beliefs also reconciled panpsychism, the idea that all matter is intelligent. He developed the Omega Point Theory, which posits that all the organisms on Earth will reach a higher evolutionary point by merging into one "planetized spirit."

However, humans would have to merge their collective intelligence into one super-mind through computer technology, as a necessary first step in the collective evolution of the universe. Teilhard was unapologetic about the eugenic basis of his theory:

So far we have certainly allowed our race to develop at random, and we have given too little thought to the question of what medical and moral factors must replace the crude forces of natural selection should we suppress them. In the course of the coming centuries, it is indispensable that a form of noble eugenics, on a standard worthy of our personalities, should be discovered and developed. Eugenics applied to individuals leads to eugenics applied to society.[1]

The first use of the term "singularity" in this context was by mathematician John von Neumann, one of the leaders of the Cybernetics Group. According to Jeffrey Steinberg, in From Cybernetics to Littleton,

For John von Neumann and Norbert Wiener, the core of the Cybernetics Group project was the development of computers, and the prospect of combining high-speed computers with so-called Artificial Intelligence, to literally "program" the human race. Underlying all of these efforts was the unshakable, albeit preposterous conviction, most avidly presented by von Neumann, that there was nothing sacred about the human mind, and that the human brain was a machine, whose functioning could be replicated, and eventually surpassed, by computers.

The biologist and eugenicist Julian Huxley, who was once head of UNESCO and whose brother Aldous was one of the leading architects of MK-Ultra, popularizing the use of psychedelics, is generally regarded as the founder of "transhumanism." Julian also wrote the introduction to Teilhard de Chardin's The Phenomenon of Man. In 1957 he wrote:

Up till now human life has generally been, as Hobbes described it, ‘nasty, brutish and short’; the great majority of human beings (if they have not already died young) have been afflicted with misery… we can justifiably hold the belief that these lands of possibility exist, and that the present limitations and miserable frustrations of our existence could be in large measure surmounted… The human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself —- not just sporadically, an individual here in one way, an individual there in another way, but in its entirety, as humanity.[2]

Computer scientist Marvin Minsky wrote on relationships between human and artificial intelligence beginning in the 1960s. Over the succeeding decades, this field continued to generate influential thinkers, such as Hans Moravec and Raymond Kurzweil. The coalescence of an identifiable transhumanist movement began in the last decades of the 20th century. In 1966, FM-2030 (formerly F.M. Esfandiary), a futurist who taught “new concepts of the Human” at The New School in New York, began to identify people who adopt technologies, lifestyles and world views transitional to "posthumanity" as "transhuman."

The New School had become affiliated with the Frankfurt School when, following Hitler’s rise to power in 1933, its members left Germany for Geneva before moving to New York in 1935. There, they became affiliated with the University in Exile, which the New School had founded in 1933, with financial contributions from the Rockefeller Foundation, to be a haven for scholars dismissed from teaching positions by the Italian fascists or Nazi Germany.

These ideas were glamorized in Hollywood, such as Kubrik's version of 2001: A Space Odyssey by Arthur C. Clarke, the Terminator series, Blade Runner based on LSD-influenced author Philip K. Dick's Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep. Dick was also inspired by Teilhard de Chardin. Philip K Dick was also associated with Ira Einhorn, known as “The Unicorn,” a prominent figure in the New Age counterculture of the late sixties and seventies. through The Whole Earth Review, a by-product of Stewart Brand's Catalogue, where they initiated discussion of Soviet psychotronics and mind control. Shortly afterward, Einhorn's girlfriend’s body parts were discovered in a trunk in his Philadelphia apartment, and Einhorn charged with her murder.

Other movies following the transhumanist trends have been the anime classic The Ghost in the Shell, The Matrix, the remake of Robocop, and more recently Her, with Joachin Phoenix, and Transcendence, starring Johnny Depp.

Ray Kurzweil, now a director of engineering at Google, cited von Neumann's use of the term “singularity” in a foreword to von Neumann's classic The Computer and the Brain. Kurzweil received the 1999 National Medal of Technology and Innovation, America's highest honor in technology, from President Clinton in a White House ceremony. And in 2002 he was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame, established by the U.S. Patent Office. He has received nineteen honorary doctorates, and honors from three U.S. presidents. Kurzweil has been described as a "restless genius" by The Wall Street Journal and "the ultimate thinking machine" by Forbes. PBS included Kurzweil as one of 16 "revolutionaries who made America" along with other inventors of the past two centuries. Inc. magazine ranked him #8 among the "most fascinating" entrepreneurs in the United States and called him “Edison's rightful heir."

Kurzweil has authored seven books, five of which have been national bestsellers. The Age of Spiritual Machines, about artificial intelligence and the future course of humanity, has been translated into 9 languages and was the #1 best-selling book on Amazon in science. Kurzweil believes evolution provides evidence that humans will one day create machines more intelligent than they are. Kurzweil predicts the machines "will appear to have their own free will" and even "spiritual experiences".

Kurzweil's book The Singularity Is Near was a New York Times bestseller, says this will lead to a technological singularity in the year 2045, a point where progress is so rapid it outstrips humans' ability to comprehend it. Once the Singularity has been reached, Kurzweil predicts machine intelligence will be infinitely more powerful than all human intelligence combined. Afterward, Kurzweil says, intelligence will radiate outward from the planet until it saturates the universe.

Kurzweil's standing as a futurist and transhumanist has led to his involvement in several singularity-themed organizations. Kurzweil is also among the founders of the Singularity Summit, the annual conference of the Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence, in 2006 at Stanford University. SIAI was founded to "help humanity prepare for the moment when machine intelligence exceeded human intelligence." (Also check out the Singularity University.)

A leading evangelist for Kurweil’s ideas is Jason Silva, a television personality and “performance philosopher,” who quotes Teilhard de Chardin to substantiate his prognostications. Silva started out as a presenter on Al Gore’s cable channel, Current TV. In September 2012, he appeared at the Festival of Dangerous Ideas, where he presented a speech entitled "We Are The Gods Now."

Silva also promotes the ideas of David Pearce, a leading figure in the Transhumanism movement. Pearce owns a series of websites that feature biographies and information about MKUltra personalities like Chilean psychiatrist Claudio Naranjo and Aldous Huxley. In The Hedonistic Imperative, Pearce calls for liberation from our natural biochemistry, what he refers to as the “sick psycho-chemical ghetto bequeathed by our genetic past" and the beginning of an era of “paradise engineering.” With the help of psychedelics, he writes, we´ll be able to chemically enhance our dopaminergic systems so that “undiluted existential happiness will infuse every second of waking and dreaming existence.”[3]

The Atlantic describes Silva as "A Timothy Leary of the Viral Video Age."[4] Silva, who is also described as "a part-time filmmaker and full-time walking, talking TEDTalk," is completely giddy with wild possibilities about transcendence. Continuing the MK-Ultra tradition of drugs and computers, Silva says of himself that he is “fascinated by the relationship between psychedelics and technology…”[5]

Transhumanism is jewish to the core. Its original founders and promoters are jewish, and the ideas come straight out of the shetl and kabbalah. Here are some interesting quotes I found that show just how fundamentally jewish transhumanism is:
"Through the use of 'smart drugs' and what transhumanists call 'mind uploading,' man will be able to merge with the internet, which is envisioned as the end-point of Kabbalistic evolution, the formation of a collective consciousness, or Global Brain. That awaited moment is what Ray Kurzweil [Jew], a director of engineering at Google, refers to as The Singularity. By accumulating the total human knowledge, and providing access to every aspect of human activity, the Internet will supposedly achieve omniscience, becoming the 'God' of occultism, or the Masonic All-Seeing Eye."
--David Livingstone, From "Transhumanism: The History of a Dangerous Idea"
"Mordechai Nessayahu's [Jew] 'Cosmotism' depicts a future in which Israel saves humanity from eco-disasters and nuclear annihilation. Also influential as a Labor Party stalwart, Nessyahu motivated Yitzak Rabin and Shimon Peres to pursue the Oslo Accords peace plan. Shimon Peres published his own visions in 'A New Beginning.' He imagines an improved Israel via peace and an information revolution. Equally optimistic is Yigal Arica's [Jew] 'What's in the Future?' Niv Ahituv's [Jew] 'A World Without Secrets' presents a totally transparent world, where all information about everyone is available to everyone. It is the 21st century evolution of the ancient old ideals of Marxism."
-Hank Pellissier (Jew)
"Transhumanism is an occult project, rooted in Rosicrucianism and Freemasonry, and derived from the Kabbalah, which asserts that humanity is evolving intellectually, towards a point time when man will become God. Modeled on the medieval [jewish] legend of the Golem and Frankenstein, they believe man will be able to create life itself, in the form of living machines, or artificial intelligence."
-David Livingstone, author of "Transhumanism: The History Of A Dangerous Idea"
"A disproportionate number of Jews are leaders in Transhumanism, as also in these other Utopian ideologies."
-H+ Magazine http://hplusmagazine.com/
"There is precedent for strivings towards an earthly Messianic era, with overtones of Transhumanism. Socialists, and particularly the idealists of the late nineteenth century, looked forward to the hell-and-heaven of a secular End of Days, with science and technology as guides. Theodor Herzl (Jew) likewise offered a technophiilic and universalistic solution to the age-old problem of antisemitic persecution."

Ah yes, it is a "Brave New World", the long sought Jewish Scientific Dictatorship. Through the most efficient scientific and psychological engineering, people are genetically designed to be passive and therefore consistently useful to the ruling class. Reminds me of Mond, the theorist declaring, "History is Bunk", "He waved his hand and it was as though, with an invisible feather whisk, he had brushed away a little dust, and the dust was Harappa, was Ur of the Chaldees; some spider webs, and they were Thebes and Babylon and Cnossos and Mycenae. Whisk. Whisk- and where was Odysseus, where was Job, where was Jupiter and Gotama and Jesus? Whisk-- and those specks of antique dirt called Athens and Rome, Jerusalem and the Middle Kingdom--- all were gone. Whisk-- the place where Italy had been was empty. Whisk, the Cathedrals ; whisk, whisk. King Lear and the Thoughts of Pascal. Whisk, Passion; whisk, Requiem; whisk, Symphony; whisk......." "The combination, of annihilating war and the subsequent obliteration and erasure of cultural and historical memory...." Well Huxley, Yahweh God is Sovereign and he has other plans....Sick Bastards.

What was this secret philosophy? It was the unmistakable rabbinic doctrine, expressed in the Kabbalistic texts as tikkun olam (“repair of the world”) whereby Judaic (or Judaized) man assumes God-like powers to “correct” an “imperfect” and “flawed” Creation. The groundwork for the “repair” is rooted in government micro-management of our lives, along Talmudic lines of hair-splitting minutiae (cf. BT Gittin 4). Such unyielding bureaucracy paves the way for the apparatus of total control.

Kabbalistic mysticism emerges as the antidote to control, in this dialectical process. Here too is the central contradiction in this doctrine, for it nearly always advertizes itself to its New Age and pseudo-Christian percipients as a means for achieving healing, harmony, tranquility, balance, and bliss. Yet when the magical doctrines of Kabbalism came to ideological dominance in the 18th century, producing the so-called “Age of Enlightenment,” they produced not the path to renewal of the earth and a return to Eden, but the imposition and reign of “the Satanic mills” of the industrial revolution and a foreshadowing of the subjugation of humanity by an esoteric elite by means of machine surveillance control.

The dialectical process engendered by immersion in rabbinic ideology of redemption of the world produced a cataclysmic reversal, a “profound irony” missed by most of the historians of modern science. The supposed Kabbalistic philosophy of “harmony” espoused by Kabbalistic, gentile Renaissance occultists such as Pico, Reuchlin, Giorgio and Dee, led to the imposition of the tyranny of rationalism and materialism, in what Frances Yates terms a momentous shift from magic to mechanism: “It is one of the more profound ironies of the history of thought that the growth of mechanical science, through which arose the idea of mechanism as a possible philosophy of nature, was itself an outcome of the Renaissance magical tradition.

Mechanism divested of magic became the philosophy which was to oust Renaissance animism and to replace the ‘conjuror’ by the mechanical philosopher.” Once the principle of the religion of Judaism as expressed in the Kabbalah, of man’s prideful, god-like power and his lofty “right” to tamper with Divine Creation, was established, and scientism began to emerge as a system of thinking and action unfettered by traditional restraints and fear of God, the mystical aspects of the philosophy were discarded, leaving Satanic pride to wed itself to technological prowess. —Michael Hoffman, Judaism Discovered, 2008, Independent History and Research, pg. 817-819

Hoffman provides a well-known Jewish example of this alchemical process in the Golem in Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare (1989), Our would be-psychic engineers and human alchemists are well aware of the nearness of midnight in this, their ‘low bottom twelve’ time-cycle. They teeter on the brink of the synthesis of the darkest dream of the Kabbalists, a marriage frantically sought, between E. coli bacteria from the colon of man, the genome code and the power of computer automata, for the creation of the Golem. A theological conception of the creation of an animate being by man rather than God is found in the Babylonian Talmud (Sanhedrin 65b): ‘Rabbi Rava created a man and sent him to Rabbi Zera.’

According to Emily Bilski and Dr. Moshe Idel of Hebrew University, Jerusalem: ‘Found in a major authoritative Jewish text, this passage (from the Talmud) indicates that Judaism accepted the idea of the creation of an artificial man…At issue was the claim that Jews could attain a major achievement, that Jewish masters possessed the highest magical powers.’ The techniques for fabricating the golem are located in a Kabbalistic book, the Sefer Yezirah…thus it was that the Renaissance magical tradition gave birth to the monstrous world of machines, industrial pollution, ugliness, and the modern ways of death we have come to term, ‘the rat race.’

Lisa Nocks (M.A. in Media Studies, working toward a Ph.D. in Modern Intellectual History and Literature) wrote an interesting article which covers transhumanism, in a manner of speaking, based on a consideration of the infamous golem (“The Golem: between the technological and the divine,” Journal of Social and Evolutionary Systems, Volume 21, Issue 3, 1998, Pages 281-303).

No, in this case Golem does not refer to the human character in Lord of the Rings named Smeagol who became the creature Gollum.
Rather, the term golem comes from the Bible and the popular concept of the Golem came from Jewish mysticism: Kabbalah.
The one and only place where the term appears in the Bible is in Psalms 139:15-16 where we read:
My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the depths of the earth; your eyes have seen my unformed substance; And in Your book were all written The days that were ordained for me, When as yet there was not one of them.

The phrase “unformed substance” is in Hebrew as “golem golem” (Strong's H1564) a word that is generally defined as embryo or fetus. Gesenius's Lexicon notes that it is “something rolled together.”

So, Biblically a golem is not some sort of mythical, mystical, mud-man creature. This is why the term and the concept are different (there are actually two concepts; the Biblical and the Kabbalistic).

Lisa Nocks summarizes the point of the transhuman connection thusly:
…if biotechnology, genetic engineering, robotics, and artificial intelligence theory are any measure, our interest in moving beyond the limitations of Homo sapiens has grown steadily from tales founded in the archaic imagination toward twenty-first century technologies.

This interest, she notes, is “connected to our species’ struggle for survival through a kind of artificial selection.”
Thus, she further notes that “the Golem’s duality represents humanity’s anxiety over its transition from what Paul Levinson has called ‘products of evolution to producers of evolution or change.’”

Kabbalah aka Qabalah aka Cabala, etc. (which in a good mood one may call Jewish mysticism and in a more sober mood call Jewish witchcraft):
…is thought to have been founded by Isaac the Blind around 1200 c.e. in Gerona, Spain, and systematized by two of his disciples, Asher ben David, and Azriel ben Menahem.

Of course, this disregards the influences from which Isaac the Blind or any other expositor of Kabbalah. These influences came, mostly, from Babylonian mystery religions. It was whilst in exile in Babylon and Rabbinic Judaism came into being and this form of administration via the Rabbinate is clearly distinct from the Judaism of the Tanak aka Old Testament.

Rabbinic Judaism ultimately produced the Talmud(s) which combined oral traditions (Mishnah) and interpretation of the oral tradition (Gemara)—the Talmud(s) also include folklore, etc.

The less voluminous and less authoritative is the Jerusalem Talmud aka the Talmud Yerushalmi and the more voluminous and more authoritative one is the Babylonian Talmud aka the Talmud Balvi:
The largest body of Talmudic literature, began as oral discourses and homilies, took form c. 450-10 b.c.e. and gained impetus during the Tannaitic era, c. 10 b.c.e.-220 c.e. Not written down until c. early third century, c.e., the end of the Tannaitic era, Midrashic exegesis reached their climax during the Amoraic period, 220-500 c.e.

Note that in the quote above “b.c.e.” is an anti-Christian manner whereby to say “B.C.” and “c.e.” is “A.D.” These are merely politically correct terms that have become popular in academe.

According to de Hass, the fundamental idea of the Cabal was that through practice of its mysteries, one attained union with God:
. . .only through the contemplation of the mystic and secret tradition which goes back to the very origins of mankind, and by the aid of the holy names of God and intense concentration on, and study of, various religious principles (de Haas, 1934, p. 89).

She notes “two types of Cabala-theoretical and practical” which is reminiscent of the two types of Freemasonry: speculative (theoretical or philosophical) and operative (practical; actually building structures). And, of course, this should come as no surprise since at the very heart of just about any and every secret society, mystery religion, occult group (by any other name) of which you could think you will find the Kabbalah. And yes, of course, this includes Freemasonry:
Masonry is based on Judaism. Eliminate the teachings of Judaism from the Masonic Ritual and what is left?
—Jewish Tribune of New York, October 28, 1927 AD

Albert Pike, author of Freemasonry’s Morals and Dogma and Sovereign Grand Commander of the Scottish Rite, noted that the Kabbalistic “Theology of the Sephiroth” is the very premise upon which speculative Freemasonry is based.

So now, let us get to the actual Golem itself. The basic concept, with various variations, is for the Kabbalist to create a “living” being out of earth/soil/dirt. This “makes sense,” in a witchcraft sort of way, as YHVH created Adam from the stuff of the Earth and, in fact, Adam:
The key to producing the Golem was believed to have come from the Sefer Yezirah, parts of which are attributed to Abraham the Patriarch…There is no place in these volumes which gives direction in Golem making. The idea was extrapolated from its rather complicated explanation of the layout of the universe and the method by which it was created.

The aforementioned “Theology of the Sephiroth” is in reference to what Lisa Nocks describes as follows:
According to the Sefer Yeziruk God created the world through an emanation, or Safaria sphere of spiritual substance. From the first sphere emanated a second, and so on until there were ten spheres, or Sefirot. It is through these ten Sefirot and the twenty-two consonants of the Hebrew alphabet, especially those of the letters of the name of God (the tetragrammaton)—YHVH (sometimes written as YHWH)—that everything was created, and by which God communes with humanity and the rest of creation. The letters were understood to be alive, or comprised of the ten Sefirot. The twenty-two letters and the ten Sefirot make up the thirty-two paths of life.

Considering Kabbalah’s occult roots, it is no surprise that the concept of one emanation producing ten, in turn, which then combine with the twenty-two Hebrew consonants whereby everything is created and which make up the thirty-two paths of life sounds very much like Taoism.

Taoism is a Chinese theology/philosophy/mysticism which holds that from a creative nothingness brings forth an energy which splits in two (yin and yang) which then further break down and combine into various combinations known as trigrams (illustrated as a series of three solid or broken lines).

Furthermore, note:
The pattern of everything in the universe is thus based on a numerical formula surrounding the combination of these letters. Each of the twenty-two letters is combined with each of the others, so that in the end a circle of 462 letter pairs or “gates” results. Of these 462, half are redundant, so the first 231 are considered the “front gates” (going forward) and the other 231 are the “back gates” (going backward). These gates make up everything in the universe, which is “sealed on all six sides with the six permutations of the name YHVH.”

Glotzer points out that there was an important reason for the letters to read both forward and back, based on the Jewish philosophical theory of birth and decay (“Havayah VeHefseid”)-“they must accomplish not just creation but destruction”…Thus the two sets of gates were understood to be constantly moving forward and backward. The importance of the destructive side of the creative process becomes evident in the Cabalist’s: practice of Golem making, where performing the ritual in reverse returns the man to dust.

This is interesting with regards to satanism’s law of reversal which is that satan does that which YHVH does but does it backwards, upside down and inside out—or, rather, backwards.

With all of this background we can now understand how and why it was concluded that:
…the Golem could be brought to life by the utterance of the correct combinations of the holy letters (different combinations for male or female) while walking around the form; the Golem could be returned to its element by walking in reverse direction around it and uttering the combinations in reverse.

In keeping with the satanic law of reversals, note that Albert Pike also wrote:
The true name of Satan, the Kabalists say, is that of Yahveh reversed; for Satan is not a black god, but the negation of God. The Devil is the personification of
Atheism or Idolatry. For the Initiates, this is not a Person, but a Force, created for good, but which may serve for evil.

It is the instrument of Liberty or Free Will. They represent this Force, which presides over the physical generation, under the mythologic and horned form of the God Pan; thence came the he-goat of the Sabbat, brother of the Ancient Serpent, and the Light-bearer or Phosphor, of which the poets have made the false Lucifer of the Legend.

This turning of satan into a good guy (by any other name) is, by the way, the satanic theology behind the secret societies, mystery religions, occult groups, etc. For example, in Gnosticism the evil God (YHVH) created the evil material world and the good god (lucifer) came to enlighten humanity. In Greek mythology the Titan (titan/satan) Prometheus steals fire from the gods and gives it to humanity so that this is indicative of enlightenment.

Some credit Friedrich Nietzsche for coining the term “God is dead” however, the article points out that in a version of the Golem story from the Languedoc area in southern France of the early thirteenth century:
…a Golem made by the prophet Jeremiah has the letters “YHWH Elohim Emeth” (“God is Truth”) on his forehead. He also has a knife in his hand, which he uses to erase the aleph, leaving “meth,” meaning “God is Dead.”

In another story, which from our perspective hits the black magick aspect of this whole Golem issue on the head; a Golem requests to be unmade and explains:
So God has made you in his image and in His shape and form. But now that you have created a man like him, people will say: there is no God in the world beside these two!

The two referred to are the two Rabbis who had brought him into being. Indeed, the practice of making inanimate matter come to life is viewed within Kabbalah as the ultimate demonstration of having mastered the art. However, it is, in reality, the acceptance of the original deception in Genesis 3 wherein the serpent satan states, “you will be like God.”

In fact, in the context of the ubiquity of the original deception note:
The Book of Life, also from around 1200, refers to legends that the ancient Egyptian magicians used earth in the order of the Merkabah, by which they made creatures…This suggests that the Jews believed that the idea of creating life from the elements was not unique to them, but universal.

In fact, she further notes that the 1797 AD story The Sorcerer’s Apprentice Johann Wolfgang von Goethe plays off of the Golem idea. And, of course, Goethe’s Golem retelling was incorporated into the Disney film Fantasia wherein Mickey Mouse plays the part of the sorcerer’s apprentice. He brings an inanimate broom to life in order to perform certain services for him but chaos ensues until he attempts to kill it by chopping it into pieces with an axe. Yet, ultimately, the spell is only reversed (there is that reversal again) when the master magickian returns and does away with the cursed thing.

What a nice children’s story: black magick and violence—thanks Disney!

Recall that Lisa Nocks noted “our interest in moving beyond the limitations of Homo sapiens” and note that she further notes that Paul Levinson (Professor and Chair of Communication & Media Studies at Fordham University in New York City and the editor of the Journal of Social and Evolutionary Systems):
…writes that the agent of this change is technology, through which we “embody and extend our ideas, inject our minds into the world and disperse our theories to the far corners of the universe, and therein begin to mold the universe to human designs.”
—“Mind at Large: Knowing in the Technological Age,” Research in Philosophy and Technology, JAI, 1988 AD, p. 12

For much more on the concept of humanity’s designing the universe see:
Aliens and time travel

Let us conclude with some statements regarding Kabbalah:
The Jewish Encyclopedia notes:
The Pythagorean idea of the creative powers of numbers and letters, upon which the "Sefer Yeẓirah" is founded, and which was known in tannaitic times [circa 10 BC-220 AD]…[is] an old cabalistic conception. In fact, the belief in the magic power of the letters of the Tetragrammaton and other names of the Deity…seems to have originated in Chaldea…

Whatever, then, the theurgic [a magickal system practiced by Egyptian Platonists, et al.] Cabala was, which, under the name of "Sefer (or "Hilkot" Yeẓirah," induced Babylonian rabbis of the fourth century to "create a calf by magic" [a citation is provided to the Babylonian Talmud at Sanhedrin 65b, 67b]…an ancient tradition seems to have coupled the name of this theurgic "Sefer Yeẓirah" with the name of Abraham as one accredited with the possession of esoteric wisdom and theurgic powers…

The whole dualistic system of good and of evil powers, which goes back to Zoroastrianism and ultimately to old Chaldea, can be traced through Gnosticism; having influenced the cosmology of the ancient Cabala before it reached the medieval one. So is the conception underlying the cabalistic tree, of the right side being the source of light and purity, and the left the source of darkness and impurity ("siṭra yemina we siṭra aḥara), found among the Gnostics…The fact also that the "Ḳelippot" (the scalings of impurity), which are so prominent in the medieval Cabala, are found in the old Babylonian incantations…is evidence in favor of the antiquity of most of the cabalistic material…

The specific term for the esoteric or mystic doctrine concerning God and the universe…[was] preserved only by a privileged few…under the influence of Neoplatonic and Neopythagorean philosophy…In the geonic period [600-1040 AD] it is connected with a Mishnah-like text-book, the "Sefer Yeẓirah," and forms the object of the systematic study of the elect…[the] possessors of, or adepts in, the Cabala…These receive afterward the name of "maskilim" (the wise), after Dan. xii. 10; and because the Cabala is called…"ḥokmah nistarah" = the hidden wisdom...

Daniel 12:10 references the insightful by the term sakal. Thus, apparently, maskilim has sakal as its root. Think of it this way: maskil is mi-sakal with the “im” at the end merely denoting masculine plural.

The entry continues:
A Palestinian Midrash of the fourth century…asserts that three of the elements—namely, water, air, and fire—existed before the creation of the world; that water then produced the darkness, fire produced light, and air produced wisdom…

So “airhead” is actually a compliment! The statement continues thusly:
…and the whole world thereupon was made by the combination of these six elements…The gradual condensation of a primal substance into visible matter, a fundamental doctrine of the Cabala…It was an attempt to Judaize the un-Jewish conception of primal substances by representing them also as having been created. Compare the teaching: "God created worlds after worlds, and destroyed them, until He finally made one of which He could say, 'This one pleases Me, but the others did not please Me'"…

Closely connected herewith is the doctrine that the pious are enabled to ascend toward God even in this life…Thus were the first mystics enabled to disclose the mysteries of the world beyond…the central doctrine of Gnosticism—a movement closely connected with Jewish mysticism—was nothing else than the attempt to liberate the soul and unite it with God….Through the employment of mysteries, incantations, names of angels, etc., the mystic assures for himself the passage to God, and learns the holy words and formulas with which he overpowers the evil spirits that try to thwart and destroy him. Gaining thereby the mastery over them, he naturally wishes to exercise it even while still on earth, and tries to make the spirits serviceable to him.

So, too, were the Essenes familiar with the idea of the journey to heaven…and they were also masters of angelology. The practise of magic and incantation, the angelology and demonology, were borrowed from Babylonia, Persia, and Egypt; but these foreign elements were Judaized in the process, and took the form of the mystical adoration of the name of God and of speculations regarding the mysterious power of the Hebrew alphabet…to become, finally, foundations of the philosophy of the "Sefer Yeẓirah."

Helena Blavatsky, founder of Theosophy, noted:
Kabalah (Heb.) The hidden wisdom of the Hebrew Rabbis of the middle ages derived from the older secret doctrines concerning divine things and cosmogony, which were combined into a theology after the time of the captivity of the Jews in Babylon. All the works that fall under the esoteric category are termed Kabalistic.
—Theosophical Glossary

She also noted:
The kabalist is a student of "secret science"…This secret doctrine is identical with that of the Chaldeans, and includes at the same time much of the Persian wisdom, or "magic"…[none] agreed upon the origin of the Kabala, the Zohar, Sepher Yetzirah, etc. Some show it as coming from…Egypt, others again from Chaldea. The system is certainly very old; but like all the rest of systems, whether religious or philosophical, the Kabala is derived directly from the primeval Secret Doctrine of the East; through the Vedas, the Upanishads, Orpheus and Thales, Pythagoras and the Egyptians. Whatever its source, its substratum is at any rate identical with that of all the other systems from the Book of the Dead down to the later Gnostics.
— H. P. Blavatsky, Theosophical Glossary, 1892 AD and also in Isis Unveiled, 1877 AD

Secret Societies, Cybernetics & Mass Mind Control ... by Dean Henderson

Secret Societies, Cybernetics & Mass Mind Control
Masons, Brotherhood, Symbol, Brothers, Compass(Excerpted from Chapter 46: Nephilim Crown 5G Apocalypse)

In 1946, the British Crown’s Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) convened a meeting with the US Office of Strategic Services (OSS) at which the group launched Operation Ultra. With confiscated German & Japanese gold, the group launched a series of banks to fund future black operations.

The remainder of the looted gold ended up in the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. The BIS is the central bank for central bankers and would commandeer the new Bretton Woods global monetary system which was established in 1944 and features the official global South looters known as the IMF and the World Bank.

OSS Chief William “Wild Bill” Donovan was handled by Sir William “Intrepid” Stephenson, the real-life oo7 on which SIS veteran Ian Fleming’s James Bond movies were based. It was Stephenson who orchestrated the assassination of President John F. Kennedy from his Crown Agent BRINCO Jamaican base. (https://hendersonlefthook.wordpress.com/2014/07/25/who-killed-jfk/comment-page-1/)

It was very clear at this 1946 meeting that the Crown was to be the senior partner and a list of participants has never been released. The SIS became known as MI6 and one year later the OSS morphed into the CIA. These secret societies were not established to keep America and Britain safe. They were established to protect the new international financial paradigm which would concentrate the power of the already centuries-old bloodline banking families.

Secret societies are based on deception. Their very existence is itself a deception. Secrecy invites dark Archon energy into the world which then fills the initiate with a false sense of power based on his ability to lie and deceive. This goes against both natural law and human nature and should be seen as an alien intervention into this realm. Instead it passes for “official reality” as the Crown’s Freemason, Kabbalah, and Muslim Brotherhood operatives join their intelligence agency, military, corporate and police brethren in indoctrinating the masses with a steady diet of lies as to the nature of reality.

The 1946 Ultra program was based on cybernetic research being done at Cambridge, Oxford, Harvard and Yale. These are the universities set up as Crown Agents. By 1948 MIT mathematician Norbert Weiner had summarized cybernetics as, “the scientific study of control and communication in the animal and the machine”.

Ultra morphed into MK-Ultra in the early 1950s. This CIA program was based on the cybernetic research of Yale scientist Jose Delgado. It’s aim was to achieve mind control of the individual. The ghoulish program was brought to light during the 1975 Church Committee hearings, but a year later the CIA brought in George Bush as Director to orchestrate damage control. And in 1984 Sen. Frank Church (D-ID) died of “cancer”.

Having achieved individual mind control using various feedback mechanisms, the secret societies went back to the drawing board. Their bloodline-ordered task was to extend the operation from the individual to the entire society.

The search for mass mind control began in earnest and it was surely no coincidence that 1975 also marked the release of personal computers to the public. By 1981 IBM and Apple had, through theft of numerous patents and shear size, knocked out numerous competitors to become a computer duopoly which exists to this day.

By 1993 the National Security Agency’s (NSA’s) “golden child” Cisco worked with Intel to develop “aggressive remote control” chips which were installed in all personal computers. These chips, based on QRS-11 crystal gyroscope technology, enabled a “mechanical engine controller” known as Point Focal Node Trusted Remote Access Control (PFNTRAC). (https://hendersonlefthook.wordpress.com/2019/04/16/human-wetware-the-5g-computer-weapon/)

The Crown-controlled NSA now held the joystick and was able to not only track but to “aggressively remote control” anyone on a computer at any time. It was time to release DARPA’s Internet mass mind control weapon to the public.

Project Echelon had been formally established in 1971. It used signals bases in Canada, the US, Australia, New Zealand and the UK to monitor ALL telephone and eventually computer communications. AT&T and other telecommunications giants were complicit in the crime. The system was based on sifting through words and marking those persons using such terms as “revolution” or “Illuminati”, for example, for further monitoring and manipulation.

But even with the roll out of the Internet, the Echelon control matrix lacked meta-data. Words were one thing, but if the bloodline bankers were to “aggressively remote control” potential rebels, they would have to go deeper and know the target’s emotional state, political preferences, close associates and blackmail-enabling vices.

Enter Facebook and the other social media platforms, where each person would voluntarily create their very own NSA “profile”. The NSA could then provide a tailored “feed” to each individual based on that profile and the subjects would be allowed to construct a series of “posts”, effectively building their own electronic prison at their own time and expense. Society was now “connected” to the mind control/surveillance matrix.

Echelon would eventually become known as the Five Eyes Alliance and the Crown’s Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) would serve as the senior partner. This arrangement means US intelligence is available to the Crown and their bloodline feudalist comrades at all times.

The Crown’s secret society/intelligence agency deception arm has achieved its original cybernetic Operation Ultra goal of mass mind control. The manufacturing of the hive mind continues apace. But ultimately, as with all past tactical warfare declared on us by the fascist Illuminati degenerates, you have the ability to decide. Will you join the cyborg? Or will you be the resistance?

Dean Henderson is the author of six books: Big Oil & Their Bankers in the Persian Gulf: Four Horsemen, Eight Families & Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics & Terror Network, The Grateful Unrich: Revolution in 50 Countries, Stickin’ it to the Matrix, The Federal Reserve Cartel, Illuminati Agenda 21: The Luciferian Plan to Destroy Creation & Nephilim Crown 5G Apocalypse

Top Ten Transhumanist Technologies
by Lifeboat Foundation Scientific Advisory Board member Michael Anissimov.

Overview
Transhumanists advocate the improvement of human capacities through advanced technology. Not just technology as in gadgets you get from Best Buy, but technology in the grander sense of strategies for eliminating disease, providing cheap but high-quality products to the world’s poorest, improving quality of life and social interconnectedness, and so on. Technology we don’t notice because it’s blended in with the fabric of the world, but would immediately take note of its absence if it became unavailable. (Ever tried to travel to another country on foot?) Technology needn’t be expensive — indeed, if a technology is truly effective it will pay for itself many times over.

Transhumanists tend to take a longer-than-average view of technological progress, looking not just five or ten years into the future but twenty years, thirty years, and beyond. We realize that the longer you look forward, the more uncertain the predictions get, but one thing is quite certain: if a technology is physically possible and obviously useful, human (or transhuman!) ingenuity will see to it that it gets built eventually.

As we gain ever greater control over the atomic structure of matter, our technological goals become increasingly ambitious, and their payoffs more and more generous. Sometimes new technologies even make us happier in a long-lasting way: the Internet would be a prime example. In the following list I take a look at what I consider the top ten transhumanist technologies.


The List

10. Cryonics

Cryonics is the high-fidelity preservation of the human body, and particularly the brain, after what we would call death, in anticipation of possible future revival. Cryonics is an important transhumanist technology not only because it is already available today, but because the technology is relatively mature — we can reliably stop cells from decaying. In vitrification, the brain is not frozen in the conventional manner but with a cryoprotectant (antifreeze) mixture, which effectively prevents the formation of crystals, causing the water to freeze smoothly, like glass.

Maintenance of a cryo-patient is not difficult — it requires no electricity, but merely the replenishment of liquid nitrogen about every three weeks. As cryonics becomes more popular, this process could become automated and extremely reliable. Further improvements in dewar technology will continue to increase safety and reduce costs. The Cryonics Institute in Michigan, for example, has operated since 1976 without a single mishap.

Financed by the interest of the payout of a life insurance policy (which for people under 40 may cost as little as $100 a year to own), patients can be securely cryopreserved for as long as the cryonics company stays afloat and the dewar stays in one piece. Eventual revival does not require the technology to become available tomorrow, or next year… as long as the liquid nitrogen keeps replenished, you can stay on ice for as long as it takes.

For an existence proof of cryonic revival, there are frogs that can freeze solid and revive later, though reviving a human from freezing would likely require molecular nanotechnology (MNT). When we will be able to revive a cryo-patient will be strongly related to when we develop sophisticated MNT. Once we do develop MNT, the prospect of successful revival is extremely likely — it would involve slowly melting the ice and rebooting the metabolism by kickstarting the appropriate chemical reactions within cells.


9. Virtual Reality

 

The above image may look like a photo, but it’s actually a screenshot from the game Crysis, a first-person shooter which will be released later this year. Look at screenshots from the game and you’ll see that computer graphics are already beginning to approach photorealism. Sometime in the 2020s, reality simulations will become so high-resolution and immersive that they’ll start to get indistinguishable from the real thing.

Simulations will become the preferred environments for work and play. Pretty soon the main obstacle to truly immersive VR will not be the visuals but the haptics — our sense of touch. To fool our senses into believing haptic technologies are conveying the real thing, the “frame rate” needs to be significantly higher than for visual technologies, a few hundred updates per second rather than a few dozen — which is why development could take another decade or two. But many millions of dollars are currently going into efforts to develop advanced VR.

Clearly, World of Warcraft’s eight million subscribers and Second Life’s five million subscribers are onto something. At least 1% of all broadband Internet users play in virtual worlds, and this number is increasing rapidly. These worlds typically outclass the real world in terms of customizability, but still have yet to catch up in terms of sensory richness or social fulfillment. But it’s only a matter of time.

In the mid-to-late 2020s, I expect full-body, high quality haptic VR suits to be affordable to the average person in developed countries, obtained either from your local Wal-Mart or perhaps printed right out of a desktop nanofactory after payment of a fee. For more on this, here is one scientific paper, “Towards full-body haptic feedback”.


8. Gene Therapy/RNA Interference

Gene therapy replaces bad genes with good genes, and RNA interference can selectively knock out gene expression. Together, they give us an unprecedented ability to manipulate our own genetic code. By knocking out genes that code for certain metabolic proteins, scientists have been able to make mice that stay slim no matter how much junk food they eat. Lou Gehrig’s disease has been cured in mice, and it could only be a few years before we develop a therapy that can cure it for humans too.

Aubrey de Grey’s SENS (Strategies for Engineered Negligible Senescence) research program contains various prescriptions for the use of gene therapy. Within a couple decades or so, progress in anti-aging therapies will improve to the point where we are gaining more than an extra year of lifespan per year, reaching so-called “longevity escape velocity” eventually culminating in indefinite lifespans.

Like many transhumanist technologies, gene therapy is really exciting because it’s just beginning. No scientist has yet performed gene therapy on germline cells (sexual cells in the gonads) due to the ethical controversy of producing genetic changes which are heritable, but, as with many of these things, it’s only a matter of time. Regulations in any given country will only be capable of slowing the overall progress of the field by a few years at most.

The money will go where the research is permitted. In its mature form, gene therapy and genetic engineering will become extremely cheap and powerful, letting humans live comfortably in a wider range of environments and gain immunity to most, if not all diseases. Supercomputers of the future, with thousands or millions of times the crunch power of today’s best, will let us simulate the changes in extreme detail before we attempt them with actual human beings. This will make ill side effects quite unlikely for the typical case, much to the dismay of the authors of “genetic engineering turned daddy into a bloodthirsty zombie!” trash novels and films.


7. Space Colonization

Space colonies will become necessary to house the many billions of individuals that will be born in the future as our population continues to expand at a lazy exponential. In his book, The Millennial Project, Marshall T. Savage estimates that the Asteroid Belt could hold 7,500 trillion people, if thoroughly reshaped into O’Neill colonies. At a typical population growth rate for developed countries at 1% per annum (doubling every 72 years), it would take us 1,440 years to fill that space. Siphoning light gases off Jupiter and Saturn and fusing them into heavier elements for construction of further colonies seems plausible in the longer term as well.

Why expand into space? For many, the answers are blatantly obvious, but the easiest is that the alternatives are limiting the human freedom to reproduce, or mass murder, both of which are morally unacceptable. Population growth is not inherently antithetical to a love of the environment — in fact, by expanding outwards into the cosmos in all directions, we’ll be able to seed every star system with every species of plant and animal imaginable. The genetic diversity of the embryonic home planet will seem tiny by comparison.

Space colonization is closely related to transhumanism through the mutual association of futurist philosophy, but also more directly because the embrace of transhumanism will be necessary to colonize space. Human beings aren’t designed to live in space. Our physiological issues with it are manifold, from deteriorating muscle mass to uncontrollable flatulence. On the surface of Venus, we would melt, on the surface of Mars, we’d freeze. The only reasonable solution is to upgrade our bodies. Not terraform the cosmos, but cosmosform ourselves.


6. Cybernetics

Can you spot the cyborg in this picture? You’re looking right at him! It’s Michael Chorost, the man who was born almost deaf but now can hear, thanks to a cochlear implant. Most of the cyborgs in fiction fit certain stereotypes — bermensch wannabes, cyborg assassins, and supercops. But cyborgs already walk among us, and they look just like normal people.

This trend will continue in the future. Many cyborg upgrades which will become available in the 20s and 30s, such as hearing and vision enhancement, metabolic enhancement, artificial bones, muscles, and organs, and even brain-computer interfaces will be invisible to the casual observer, implanted beneath the skin. Cybernetic features on the surface, such as dermal enhancements or technological actuators like retractable wings, will be carefully camouflaged. No one will want to shock the rest of society by looking like the tin man in public.

The process of cyborgization has already been happening for centuries if not millennia, since the advent of clothing and piercings. For many generations, but especially in the last couple decades, our technological gadgets have been getting smaller, more functional, and more closely integrated with our natural activity.

Recently, Microsoft announced Microsoft Surface, a mouseless, keyboardless form of desktop computing which takes input from finger tracing and hand gestures. The sophistication of biotechnology and the availability of better materials and precision manufacturing will let us make systems so small and effective that even everyday people elect to implant them.

These cybernetic systems will greatly improve our everyday experience, from letting us hear a wider range of ambient sounds, to viewing millions of stars rather than just a few thousand, to making us more resistant to accidents. They will improve the overall economy by enabling us do more work in less time for better pay. In the long term, enhanced humans may get a bigger portion of the economic pie than un-augmented humans, but the pie itself will become so much larger than even the poorest humans of tomorrow will be better off than the wealthiest of today.

Here’s a good cyborg blog I found while doing research for this article, and the Power Jacket, a 4-pound jacket that enhances strength and is used by people recovering from paralysis. For more, see the cybernetics category of my del.ic.ious links, or my top ten list of cybernetic enhancements.


5. Autonomous Self-Replicating Robotics

Why do manual labor when the robots can do it for you? Self-replication might be considered the Holy Grail of robotics. A landmark NASA study, “Advanced Automation for Space Missions”, found that robotic self-replication is just a matter of engineering, and that no fundamental theoretical breakthroughs are needed. The study proposed sending a 100-ton package to the Moon, with a self-replication time of 1 year, and letting it self-replicate until the desired level of development is attained.

The design — which was fleshed out in great detail — was based on electric carts running on rails within the factory, “paving machines” that direct sunlight to melt lunar regolith, robotic strip miners for obtaining raw materials, and a solar cell “canopy” for powering it all. After 10 years, over 100,000 tons of lunar factory could be produced autonomously. The factory’s functions could then be hijacked for the benefit of human colonists, used to produce housing, products, and provide large quantities of solar power.

If similar self-replicating systems could be constructed on Earth, there would be little limit to the material plenty they could provide. Self-replicating factories could turn the vast empty badlands of Australia into lush gardens by pumping water from the oceans, self-replicating factories in the high Arctic could melt snow and create gigantic transparent domes suitable for habitation, and submersible automata in the seas could dredge sand from abiotic regions of the ocean floor and process it into gigantic platforms for human colonization.

By opening up such vast new regions of the Earth’s surface, talk of overpopulation and crowding would fall by the wayside for quite a few decades, with people realizing how much space there actually was all along. And once things really do get too crowded here on Earth, we can move to the Moon, Mars, and the asteroid belt, using the power of self-replicating robotics to create rotating space colonies suitable for housing trillions of people.

Self-replicating factories could reduce the costs of material goods close to that of food — the primary expenses would consist of raw materials, energy, and whatever small quantity of human oversight is necessary to keep an eye on the overall structure of things. By utilizing special, man-made “nutrients” for top-level functions (rare or exotic molecules such as custom-synthesized proteins) and the broadcast architecture — whereby derivative factories must receive affirmations from a central parent factory to continue self-replicating — such factories could be made safe by design.

With such abundance, humanity might actually shift from having a zero-sum perspective on a world to a positive-sum perspective. With medical tools and basic goods in ample supply, no one in the world would need to suffer from poverty or curable disease. The nature of human work would shift from manual drudgery and mind-numbing routine to more creative and personally fulfilling endeavors, like art, music, math, science, literature, and exploration.

For more details on the state of the art in self-replicating machines, see the Wikipedia entry, or the magnum opus on the topic, Kinematic Self-Replicating Machines.


4. Molecular Manufacturing

If self-replication is the Holy Grail of robotics, then molecular nanotechnology (MNT) is the Holy Grail of manufacturing. Molecular nanotechnology would use massive arrays of nanometer-scale actuators (produced initially through self-replication) to manufacture macroscale products with atomic precision. This concept is known as the nanofactory.

In practical terms, the creation of nanofactories would mean that practically everything could be made out of diamond, motors would become so powerful that a cubic centimeter would provide enough torque to propel a car, medical nanodevices could heal wounds and repair organs without the need for surgery, and air-suspended nanodevices (“utility fog”) could be configured to simulate practically any desired object on demand.

On the downside of things, it could become easy to manufacture mite-sized robots with a payload of poison sufficient to kill thousands, or a laptop-sized device capable of separating U-235 from U-238 in a worrisomely simple and rapid fashion, or self-replicating synthetic algae capable of clogging up our oceans with grey goo.

Enabling widespread use of the positive applications while cleanly and completely suppressing the nasty applications is a first-order challenge. Incidentally, you can make a difference right now by donating to the Lifeboat Foundation or Center for Responsible Nanotechnology, two of very few organizations focusing on this area.

To some, molecular nanotechnology sounds like science fiction, and based on the grandiose applications I discussed in the previous paragraph, you can’t blame them. But many of the prerequisites of molecular manufacturing have already been demonstrated — “molecular surgery” has been used to snip off and replace individual hydrogen atoms, various functional nanoscale devices have been built, scanning tunneling microscopy has been used to mechanically manipulate individual atoms, and so on. The challenge is to create a nanoscale manipulator arm capable of placing individual atoms with angstrom-level precision, avoiding undesired reactions, and serving as a universal constructor that can build a copy of itself.

There are numerous technical challenges still outstanding, but when these are overcome, manufacturing will be granted the power that nature has had for hundreds of millions of years — the ability to fabricate large objects with molecular precision. The numerous potential applications of the technology to human enhancement are obvious; with molecular manufacturing, we could orchestrate elegant improvements to every single body component, achieving all of the upgrades described on my top ten list, and many more.


3. Megascale Engineering

Most people are familiar with megascale engineering because it is seen throughout fiction — the Death Star, for instance. Typically, megascale engineering refers to building structures at least 1,000 km in length in one dimension, such as a space elevator, Globus Cassus, or Dyson sphere. With the self-replicating robotics described above, the production of such large structures could be done largely by autonomous drones, with intelligent agents only managing the highest top-level functions and architecture.

Considering that mankind’s long-term future is in space, and that space right now is pretty devoid of any structure useful or habitable to humans, we have a lot of work to do, and if you can make the projects megascale, why not?

Like some of the other items on this list, megascale engineering is only indirectly transhumanist — but is still very relevant to the long-term future of intelligent life. Megascale engineering goes hand-in-hand with the grandiose transhumanist vision: intelligent beings spreading across the cosmos, and eventually shaping the very structure of the universe itself.

The fact that these vast expanses of colonizable space are currently neglected imposes on us a vast opportunity cost — if we hurried up a bit and colonized them, we could give rise to tremendous numbers of people leading worthwhile lives. What experiences would they have, and what stories would they tell? We’ll never find out, unless we make it happen.


2. Mind Uploading

Mind uploading, sometimes referred to as nonbiological intelligence, centers around the controversial proposition that cognitive processing can be implemented on substrates other than our current neurons. Considering decades of successful results in neurophysiology, and the recent construction of the world’s first brain prosthesis — an artificial copy of the hippocampus — this seems very likely. It appears that our minds are defined more by the information pattern they embody than the particular hardware they are implemented on.

Numerous philosophers of mind have long recognized this, but acceptance among the wider public has been a long time in coming: people don’t want to think that they’re “just” data structures being implemented as computational automata on biological neurons. But it is hard to think of it any other way: once we dismiss the possibility of an immaterial soul, we must acknowledge the mind as a material pattern implemented in physical configurations, and if other substances aside from our current neurons can meet the requirements for these configurations, then there is no reason why intelligence and consciousness could not exist on another substrate. For a humorous look at this complex philosophical argument, see “They’re Made Out of Meat” by Terry Bisson.

If our brains really don’t have to be made out of meat, then we can transfer them to other substrates. By incrementally replacing each neuron with a synthetic neuron-equivalent, the whole process could go down painlessly and seamlessly. The transfer could be as slow or as fast as we want: from the information-processing perspective of the brain itself, nothing ever changes. Light still comes in through the eye’s lens, hits the retina, is transformed into nerve impulses which travel down the optic nerve, receives further processing in the visual cortex at the back of the brain, the highlights of which are sent to the prefrontal cortex for integration with information from the other senses.

The brain can’t tell if it’s made out of traditional meat, or accelerated biological neurons, or entirely nonbiological neuron-equivalents: the computation is the same. Sometimes this notion is also referred to as an application of the Church-Turing thesis.

If entirely synthetic brains are possible, then there’s nothing stopping such persons from inhabiting computer networks — not indirectly, sitting in chairs as we currently do, but directly, engaging in computer worlds as a sentient program of tremendous complexity. With molecular manufacturing on hand, reversing the process would be as simple as printing out a hundred or so kilograms of flesh and bone again, complete with memories from the networked experience.

This is probably among the transhumanist visions that most reliably elicits the “yuck!” reaction, but if functionalism is true, then virtual experience will be indistinguishable from physical experience. Not only that, but even more enjoyable, due to the manifold degrees of freedom which would become newly accessible. In a virtual world, there are no laws of physics except those we choose.

For a bit more on simulations, see this primer, and remember: be careful not to generalize from fictional evidence.


1. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)

As argued in the previous section, functionalism seems likely. If so, then strong AI is possible. Thinking, feeling, imagining, creating, communicating, thoughtful synthetic intelligences with conscious experiences. Whether serial computing is sufficient, or parallel computing is necessary, both are within technological reach, and present-day computing speeds are fast approaching the computing power of the human brain.

In fact, according to many estimates, the fastest present-day supercomputer, Blue Gene/P, has already exceeded it. Blue Gene/P operates continuously at speeds of over a petaflop, which is a million billion operations per second. For strong AI skeptics, no computer — even one operating at trillions of trillions of trillions of operations per second, is sufficient to implement true intelligence, but to functionalists like myself, such a meat-centric perspective is unjustified.

Distinct from artificial intelligence in general, which has come to refer to any sophisticated software program, artificial general intelligence refers to AIs that display open-ended learning and similar competency levels to human beings.

A handful of researchers are working diligently towards artificial general intelligence, informed by the mathematics of inference and probability theory: Jürgen Schmidhuber, whose “main scientific ambition has been to build an optimal scientist, then retire”; Marcus Hutter, author of the landmark book Universal Artificial Intelligence; Ben Goertzel, who recently presented his AI design in a talk to Google; and Eliezer Yudkowsky, who is developing a reflective decision theory from first principles. Whether or not others believe in the feasibility of general AI, these individuals will keep working, and one will eventually succeed.

The way the world would be impacted by the arrival of general AI is too extreme to discuss in much detail here. If raw materials such as sand can be converted into computer chips and then into intelligent minds, eventually the majority of material in the solar system could be made intelligent and conscious. The result would be a “noetic Renaissance”: the expansion of intelligence and experience beyond our wildest dreams.

Conversely, if not given empathic values, artificial intelligence could lead to the doom of all. It’s up to us to set the initial conditions appropriately: if not, we might not be around to regret it.

Transhumanism and Judaism

https://exposeintelligence.blogspot.com/2015/12/beyond-otaku-transhumanism-and-judaism.html

Transhumanism seeks to bring about a radically transformed future, one in which every aspect of our human existence is changed for the better. The ideology, though not explicitly dependent on any one culture, is in practice tightly bound with Silicon Valley way of life: intellectual, elitist, Americentric, secular, and technophilic.

Ethnic groups world-wide have developed distinctive elements such as oral traditions, literature, song, visual art, crafts, languages, family structures, ritual, moral systems, and much more. If Transhumanism completely remakes mankind in its own image, we will lose the best of thousands of world cultures, from New Guinea to Lappland. Transhumanists counter that in their preferred future, people will be permitted to retain their atavisms Amish-style, or else to adopt for themselves features of any culture, just as people today can choose punk, Goth, Otaku, or polyamory.

These alternatives leave a thin broth in place of yesterday’s rich stew. Western civilization has already swamped thousands of now-dead cultures, eliminating both their good and their bad aspects. Transhumanism threatens to wipe out all the rest.

Many Transhumanists strive to base their principles and beliefs on culture-neutral rational principles, such as utilitarianism. Yet cultural neutrality does not require neutralizing culture. Transhumanism also believes in “Humanity Plus,” in enhancing the best of what makes us human. This includes not only universal values, but also those found in the tremendous variety of cultures. There is a more out there than furries and anime. We must open a path into the future for these myriad cultures.

The path-breaking Transhumanism belief-system does draw on richer historical roots than are readily visible in its future-looking ideas. Though these are less important influences, they serve as a reminder that not all is rationalist-libertarian-atheist. Transhumanism has drawn on Pierre Teilhard de Chardin’s Jesuit learning, as well as the Taoist and Buddhist insights of East Asia, the Paleolithic lifestyle represented by today’s hunter-gatherers, and the Russian Orthodox traditionalism of Nikolay Fedorovich Fedorov. This essay will trace the connection to Transhumanism of another source: The Jewish culture, religion and ethnic group.

The Roots of Apocalyptic

The Singularity is a modern apocalyptic, the End of Days: the looming threat of world-destroying nanobots, or an superintelligent machine as world-devouring demon-god. Along with that, the Singularity offers the promise of a Messianic Transition Guide to lead us to utopia, with a Singleton AI as benevolent god-figure–or, as Eliezer Yudkowsky has put it, an entity greater than any god ever imagined.

The idea of the apocalypse (originally meaning “revelation”) emerged in Judaism during the late Biblical period, under the influence of Persian Zoroastrianism. The idea reached the form we know today around the turn of the era, emerging in both Judaism and Christianity.

As Steven Kaas points out, the concept of Singularity differs sharply from the religious version of the Abrahamic religions. Still, there is no doubt that the Rapture of the Nerds evokes many of the same feelings as the Jewish and Christian Apocalypse. And of these two religious visions, the Singularity more closely resembles the Jewish version, in which the Messianic era is purely earthly, a much-improved political situation, with people living their lives in a material Utopia, not transfigured into a spiritual existence.

There is precedent for strivings towards an earthly Messianic era, with overtones of Transhumanism. Socialists, and particularly the idealists of the late nineteenth century, looked forward to the hell-and-heaven of a secular End of Days, with science and technology as guides. Theodor Herzl likewise offered a technophilic and universalistic solution to the age-old problem of anti-Semitic persecution. Libertarians, who are disproportionately represented among Transhumanists, envisage a Utopia brought about by the elimination of government interference in society.

A disproportionate number of Jews are leaders in Transhumanism, as also in these other Utopian ideologies. This may be due to the influence on Jews of their tradition’s materialist apocalyptic; or this may simply be another case of Jews’ outsized representation in many areas of endeavor in modern society. But either way, a glance at any list of well-known Transhumanists shows that the Jewish people has contributed disproportionately towards this effort to improve humanity’s future. Ironically, the number of Jews involved also means that Judaism also gets a disproportionate amount of the anti-religious reactions common in the movement.

Israel and the Future

The Jewish people have re-built their national home in Israel. This state leads the world in many areas of interest to Transhumanists: computer science, software and hardware development, bio-tech, and others. I’ll refer you to an article by Hank “Hyena” Pellissier in an earlier issue of H+Magazine for the details, and I’ll let Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fill in the picture, with his speech at the United Nations in September 2009:

…. The allure of freedom, the power of technology, the reach of communications should surely win the day. Ultimately, the past cannot triumph over the future. And the future offers all nations magnificent bounties of hope. The pace of progress is growing exponentially ….

What seemed impossible a few years ago is already outdated, and we can scarcely fathom the changes that are yet to come. We will crack the genetic code. We will cure the incurable. We will lengthen our lives. We will find a cheap alternative to fossil fuels and clean up the planet.

I am proud that my country Israel is at the forefront of these advances – by leading innovations in science and technology, medicine and biology, agriculture and water, energy and the environment. These innovations the world over offer humanity a sunlit future of unimagined promise ….

Moral Complexity

I have traced several lines of connection between Judaism and Transhumanism: The rise of apocalyptic, with a focus on a material rather than an other-worldly Utopia; the outsized contribution of Jews to Transhumanism; and the role of the state of Israel in benefiting humanity through technological progress.

But I have not traced a connection between Transhumanism and Judaism as a religion. In Transhumanism, attitudes towards religion range from evangelical atheism to a diffuse personal spirituality. Support for organized religion is few and far between, with Lincoln Cannon’s Transhumanist Mormonism and Tohamer Toth-Fejel’s Catholicism as notable exceptions. There is no explicit connection between the Jewish religion and transhumanism. But Judaism, though it includes religion in the post-Enlightenment sense of personal spirituality, is more than that. It is also an ethnic group, an ancient civilization, a state, and a system of rules for daily life, including ethical principles

There is another area where Judaism’s contribution is crucial. Judaism was the origin of ethical monotheism. Other civilizations have established their own moral systems, all related through their origin in our evolutionary past, but the moral backdrop established by Judaism has spread world-wide through the civilization in which Transhumanism thrives, to a large extent through the medium of Christianity. We define morality here not simply in the narrow sense of “altruism,” but, in accordance with the Jewish legal system, as “the best way to order society and human life.”

Jewish religious law frames its commandments as divinely inspired imperatives , not merely as calculations of personal benefit, nor as arbitrary customs. The laws are not necessarily moral injunctions. Seen from the ethical perspective commonly adopted by Transhumanists, which tries to be culturally neutral while taking its guidance from Enlightenment principles such as individual choice, the ethical weight of the precepts vary from the immoral to the moral.

Some of Jewish religious law, like divorce regulations, are from the modern perspective immoral. (We should note, however, that such Biblical commandments as the extermination of enemy tribes are proto-Jewish, not Jewish; the religion has evolved radically since the writing of the Bible.)

Other rules, like dietary taboos, are morally neutral. Yet others, like rules for sexual behavior, are immorally restrictive of liberty from a modern Western perspective, yet considered key to morality by billions of people worldwide, including those who are followers of an Abrahamic religion.

But many of the religious precepts of Judaism are explicit demands for just behavior towards others, without hope of immediate reward. It is this ancient background, more than any utilitarian calculations or abstract deontological universal imperatives, which has shaped our altruistic feelings into what we call “morality” today.

Transhumanism as a whole has a “techno-volatile” world-view, foreseeing either tremendous benefit or tremendous harm from technology. This makes the definition of morality critical; when we set technology on a course, we may find that it takes us to a destination far beyond what we can imagine today.

There is thus a tension between simplicity and complexity in moral definitions. On the one hand, as technological power tends to an extreme, it is much easier to extrapolate its effect under simpler moral calculations.

David Pearce’s negative hedonism, the elimination of suffering, can be extrapolated to a world where no living being, neither human nor any other animal, experiences the subjective pain which today serves as a low-level driver for higher-level behavioral choices. Eliminating suffering is important, and it would be unfair to deprecate Pearce’s philosophy for “compromising” by seeking nothing more than the total elimination of pain. Yet morality as we intuit it, whatever it is, is much more than that.

Another Transhumanist philosophy, one which Hugo de Garis calls “Cosmism” and reluctantly advocates, ascribes primary moral value to increased intelligence. It is simple to extrapolate this morality under radical technological improvement, and relatively simple to guide the future towards perfection under this moral system. All that is needed is to fill the world with intelligent thought, and the ideal is achieved. Yet morality, again, is far more than that. An “artilect,” a superintelligence which is able to maximize intelligent thought by converting the world to ultraefficient computer processors, computronium, and then setting these processors to intelligent thought, would not have achieved moral perfection, as most of us see it.

The Singularity Institute is working on the formal definition of a decision-theory based on utilitarianism, which in the limiting case fulfills each human’s true desires with the help of a friendly superintelligence. Again, a simple definition and a relatively simple extrapolation.

The definition does try to subsume, within its compact specification, the complexity of individual human volition. And no doubt the ultimate solution, if any, will be based on something like this approach. Yet each individual’s desires sometimes contradict each other, as the science of heuristics and biases has shown. For example, the Trolley Problem, which poses certain moral quandaries to test subjects, produces results which apparently contradict not only each other but also utilitarian ethics. The “Framing Effect” bias produces mutually contradictory answers to moral questions by a single respondent depending on how the situation is described. Though the utilitarian formula “the greatest good for the greatest number” can cover pretty much any moral system with an appropriate choice of definition for “good” (technically, a utility function), human morality simply doesn’t work that way, and human morality is the only kind we can work with.

Moreover, in a world where different people want different things, reconciling their desires may be impossible. Ben Goertzel, Chairman of Humanity+, describes a Coherent Aggregated Volition which tries to average out human desires. But game theory has known, at least since the 1940s, of difficulties and paradoxes in rules-based preference aggregation, as for example Arrow’s Impossibility Theorem. The notion that one could average out human desire is a simplification.

Worse, even if one could average out human desires, what would emerge would not necessarily look like what most Transhumanists consider morality. It seems likely, for example, that an average of all humans’ attitudes towards homosexuality would work out to condemnation, or at least disapproval.

Eliezer Yudkowsky of the SIAI attempts to solve this with his proposal for Coherent Extrapolated Volition, in which the desires of humanity are not only averaged, but also extrapolated into the future towards what “we would wish if we knew more, thought faster, were more the people we wished we were.” The results of this extrapolation are not known precisely, but the dominant assumption seems to be that this future wisdom would be based on the liberal-secular-Western principles of the culture which surrounds the SIAI–augmented with other as-yet-unknown moral sentiments. The presumptuous notion that humans’ desires would converge under extrapolation at all, and that the SIAI’s host culture would serve as the core of this outcome, are simplifications with little evidence to support them.

Ray Kurzweil’s approach at least resolves the problem of oversimplification. He believes that humans will merge with machines. Rising intelligence and power will be controlled directly by humans, and thus will reflect human values in all their complexity. Unfortunately, humans are unreliable, and we cannot rely on individuals to use their power responsibly, particularly since their minds’ architecture could change in new and unpredictable ways as they merge with their computers; nor is there any guarantee that we will merge with our computers before a standalone AI self-improves itself to super-human intelligence levels.

Socialists also tried to discard our complex and contradictory morality, which was brewed by human societies out of the original psychological ingredients created by evolution; they wanted to eliminate the complex “bourgeois morality” and replace it with simple formulas like “from each according to his ability, to each according to his need,” “for the good of society,” and “for the good of the state.” Then, as the power of the state trended towards totality, the results were 100 million deaths and much more suffering.

In contrast to these simplifications, real human morality is a complex and internally inconsistent mess, as Joshua Greene has described. Morality is built of ad hoc and sometimes contradictory modules designed by evolution, and then further developed in human societies. If we really want a moral future, we must set our technology on a course towards true morality, which is deeply human, and not simple at all.

What is usually called morality, in the larger civilization in which Transhumanism is embedded, has been shaped by its Jewish origins. No one will develop brain-altering drugs to implement a morality based on the Jewish religion, or any other; nor will anyone assign a super-human AI to make this happen. The results would differ too often from personal definitions of morality in a world with thousands of cultures and billions of individuals. But the principles which emerge from this ancient, inconsistent source serve as a reminder that the world is not simple, nor is the definition of what it means to make the world a better place.

Creepy Valley ...Soul of H+

For the past twenty years Transhumanists have been trying to persuade (con) us into believing that our bodies can be “perfected” or “made gooder” via technology. Transplants, implants, supplements are now a plenty. If FANG (FacebookAppleNetflixGoogle) have their way they will breathe tiny computers called “smart dust” into your body that will link you to the Cloud and to billions of other Transhuman (part machine, part biological) and post human (non biological) citizens of Creepy Valley.

What most do not realize, is that like Yahweh (God) pulling Eve out of a rib of Adam, FANG seeks to pull a new being out of you, one that is either a cartoon that lives in a simulated reality or a robot. (A cartoon? Seriously? Yep. Read on.)

Just as God breathed into Adam and Eve and made them living souls, FANG seeks to suck the life out of the first you and blow it into the “second you” to make it their version of a living soul living on in Creepy Valley.

In order to do this, Transhumanists want you to believe our souls are not an immortal or divine spark created by God, each one like an utterly beautiful and unique ethereal snowflake that can exist apart from the body (as Plato said).

No, in Transhumanist philosophy, the soul is inseparable from the body (as Aristotle argued and Christians believe) and, to them, it is the accumulation of everything we do online, especially on Facebook.

All those photos, comments, videos and other data you have posted — that’s your soul according to Transhumanists. More, FANG is creating a rabbit hole to a new realm for you to inhabit. I’ve been alarmed and sacred about FANG. Now, I’m creeped out, too.

“You”, by the way, are thought of by Transhumanists as a pattern of matter and energy… the sum of the information you posted (which, we know, is only a fraction of the real you). The bits or stuff that compose your “soul” can be scanned, transferred, uploaded, downloaded, cut and pasted into a new, magically created non-biological machine body or cartoons and it will still be ‘you’ (just because they say it is you). Basically, like a voodoo priest, the priests of Silicon Valley (and a growing number of priestesses who have entered this mostly all boys game) believe they can capture your “soul” and imprison it, excuse me, implant it, in a new doll and still call it “you”.

This matches the concept of resurrection and ascension in a number of spiritual traditions. But it’s not.

It is more like the creation of the golem in Jewish folklore. The golem are human-like, but soulless, beings created by magical means. This folklore warns that creating golem is a no no. These being’s lack of empathy and spirit leads to disaster.

Interestingly, golem comes from the Hebrew galmi and meant “light form” or “raw” material. Some believe Adam was created as a golem. In the Bible we are told that “a mist (a cloud?) used to rise from the earth and water the whole of the ground. Then the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into this nostrils the breath and man became a living being” (Genesis 2:7).

As Eve followed Adam, Christian prophecy says that, one day, a second Adam (a next/new human) will appear and give life. I find it interesting that the creation of Adam was preceded by a mist that rose from the ground just as the creation of the Transhuman or posthuman is preceded by the rising of the Cloud.

NEW SPACES

I’m not sure if Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg knows his Jewish folklore or not, but he is in the process of releasing billions of digital golems into the world. In Facebook’s future you will create a cartoon “avatar” body or “pixel puppet” for your twin that will hang out with your friends on line in a simulated (fake) social reality called Facebook Spaces.

 

Facebook Spaces. Turn your flesh-and-blood self into a VR cartoon and “Go Live”.

Spaces is currently in beta testing, but you heard me right. Facebook wants to turn “you” into a bizarre cartoon (or a golem?)!

In the Jewish mystical book, Sefer Yetzirah, the golem were activated when the Name of God was written on a paper and inserted into its mouth. It could be deactivated by removing the paper.

Instead of a being activated by a piece of paper bearing the Name of God inserted in the mouth, Facebook will insert its A.I. code or algorithms into your new being to activate you. It can deactivate you in a blink of an eye.

Whether we realize it or not, we have already created “digital doubles” of ourselves that exist online in the Cloud. Every search, every email, every post is logged. Collectively, these thoughts are the source material (cells, particles) of the new bodies we are forming on line.

Now, the cells are preparing to morph into a humanoid form, your new doll, baby. Your new “soul” will live in the Cloud, that invisible web of consciousness rising from those black boxes buried beneath the Valley.

But this is just the beginning.

VR

Like the first fish who walked on land, once you strap on Facebook’s clunky VR headset and create your cartoon double or avatar it will interact in this new fake space (dimension) and will continue to grow and evolve.

As the A.I. technology improves — and it will, DRAMATICALLY, EXPONENTIALLY — your new cartoon body will become something beyond your wildest imagination. Your new reality will seem as real as the old, only better.

Tethered to an A.I. supercomputer, a black box, your avatar (‘cartoon double’) will continue to exist in the new fake reality long after your ‘real’ flesh has been committed to a marble vase collecting dust on a loved one’s shelf. It can even hang with the great grandkids a hundred years from now.

Another option in the works is to copy and paste your data/contents/”soul” into an AI robotic version of you (or multiple copies simultaneously). Your copy (golem) could be your companion, friend, caregiver, slave.

‘Stuffing’ our old mannerisms, memories and data into new robot versions is one way of cheating death. This copying of ourselves via disassembly and reassembly is also a form of teleportation. Once you become information you can be beamed anywhere. I mean, why not copy yourself into a new body on, say, Mars?

More, once you create this virtual or robot twin of yourself (or many ‘yous’) you can, at last, literally fulfill the wish folks sometimes have for us to ‘go f*ck yourself’.

Trust me, you are within a decade of doing this.

That is, unless you find the whole idea of transhumanism, uploading or teleporting your “soul” into your avatar doll or robot self is just “too creepy”.

CREEPY IS AS CREEPY DOES

Creepiness is the “ring-pass-not”, the ultimate limitation, for the ambitious (or obnoxious?) priests and priestesses, guys and dolls, of Silicon Valley and for humanity’s digital doubles game.

Google found this out in 2013 when its geeky target market rejected its dorky Google Glass. People looked stupid wearing these ‘smart glasses’ that promised to connect us to the Cloud and give us the ability to record everything we see. Restaurants and other public spaces (the ones with ‘real’ human beings) banned them due to privacy issues. (Remember when we had privacy?) Google’s smart glass vision was blurry to some. To me, they fell into Creepy Valley.

To avoid falling into Creepy Valley Facebook’s cartoons of us, our avatars, must be real, but not ‘too real’. Almost human, but not quite. This is a daunting design challenge, as FANG and the A.I. gurus know there is a line between loving and embracing our digital creations (and wanting to hump or ride them) and reviling them like creepy dolls from a horror movie.

If one crosses this line they land smack dab in what is called “the uncanny valley”. This is where a robot or an avatar is to “too human”, but not all the way. The result is creepy. We are reviled, alienated, by its uncanniness. The gap is so unsettling that it makes you sick or terrified. It just makes your skin crawl.

If they appear “off”, people will turn them “off”.

This is why Transhumanists are running scared. If they (and we along with them) fall into this gap, Transhumanism will become a dip in human evolution, a blip in history. The alien take-over of humanity will fail.

The way to avoid Creepy Valley is not to go in its direction to begin with.

THE ORIGIN OF CREEPY/UNCANNY VALLEY

“The uncanny valley” is a hypothesis proposed in 1970 by Japanese roboticist Masahiro Mori that represents the moment when a robot or avatar repulses us and we turn away from it. According to researchers, this discomfort stems from some existential questions about the nature of humanity (our souls).

This hypothesis says that the more humanlike something is, the more comfortable we feel with it and the more empathy we have with it. But this comfort level drops sharply off the cliff when the object (a robot, lifelike doll, 3D computer animation) too closely resembles a human.

We feel scared. And tricked. If we don’t resolve it, we are left momentarily hanging (like Wily Coyote) between the fake world and the real world.

Beep, beep!

IMHO, this gap could be the undoing of the avatars, golem and robots of Creepy Valley.

With the increasing use of virtual reality, augmented reality and computer animation that is becoming indistinguishable from reality, the ‘valley’ will face each of us more and more.

Everyone knows when they have landed in Creepy Valley. Everyone gets there at a different time because everyone’s tolerances are different. What I consider creepy, trashy or uncanny and what you consider uncanny are two different things.

The uncanny valley may be generational, too. Younger generations, like the Millennials who are creating the A.I., CGI Avatars, robots, etc. are not as affected by the shift into creepiness as, say, Boomers are.

Time is on the side of the Millennials.

According to the theory of ethical-futurist writer Jamais Cascio, once these technologies become commonplace and the new humans gain further distance from ‘us old humans’, “transhuman” individuals would cease to be judged by human standards and instead be regarded as separate (“alien” entities, which are called “posthumans”). Creepy will then take on a whole new meaning.

NO FAKE CREEPY STUFF

Humans appear programmed to reject what is ‘too’ fake and emotionless, because our brains are hardwired to identify whether the things brought to life in our imagination are hostile or friendly.

Not being able to tell the difference with our eyes freaks us out. This is the conclusion of a study published in the journal New Ideas in Psychology in 2016 in which psychologists surveyed 1341 people about the various scenarios and people that creeped them out.

The first-ever empirical study on “creepiness”, the international participants reported being creeped out by people and situations in which they couldn’t figure out the level of threat, like meeting a stranger who wanted to take a picture of your friend, or a person kept touching your friend; people with unusual patterns of behavior or strange emotional responses were also considered creepy.

Are these people actually predatory, or are they behaving innocently? That ambiguity, the researchers argued, is what makes people feel uneasy. They believed that the human “creepiness detector” is activated when a potential threat is considered unpredictable.

A.I. robots, virtual reality, avatars, and all the other Valley people, are nothing but unpredictable.

Roboticist Masahiro Mori was deeply indebted to Sigmund Freud, who first put forth the concept of the uncanny. In his 1919 essay Das Unheimlich, he said the mix of the familiar and the eerie triggers repressed impulses to surface from the subconscious. Psychoanalystic theorist Jacques Lacan proposed the uncanny puts us “in the field where we do not know how to distinguish bad and good, pleasure and displeasure”, resulting in an anxious journey out of the Real.

And, they are soul less.

THAT, IMHO, is the real problem.

EYE TO EYE, SOUL TO SOUL

Eye contact is a nonverbal form of communication. The eyes are the window to the soul. When we gaze into the eyes of another person or real living being, we can see beyond their flesh and blood body into their true self, their light body, THEIR SOUL.

This is why eye gazing is a fixture in ancient Buddhist and Sufi spiritual practice and is considered a path to enlightenment.

“If thine eye be true, thy whole body will be full of light,” said Jesus.

This cannot be said about cartoon avatars and robots…not JUST because they are creepy…but because they are creepy because THEY DO NOT HAVE SOULS. There may be eye-to-eye contact in Facebook’s new fake space, but no soul-to-soul contact, which is why it is creepy…and why it will fail.

Humans want deep, authentic and intimate connection with anything that has a soul. They want this because this is how we connect with God.

Until the priests and priestesses of Silicon Valley can find a way to beam souls into the proposed avatars, golem and robots, humans will turn away from Creepy Valley in order to enjoy the sunshine of the real world and to see the face of God in every person.

In so doing, they are choosing the path of Ascension.

'It's all very interesting how the government, banking and religion really work. And I will guarantee you, nothing in this world works the way you think it does. Nothing. Banks do not loan money. The authorities are not here to protect you.....When you understand all the symbols and concepts, it's a very simple story. But the whole world has been lied to about the occult and mystical things going on; it's really a shame how ignorant the human family really is. We've lost our humanity, we've lost our money, we've lost our morals and now the world is in the process of losing its mind....you should be able to have liberty, freedom and justice. But it's all gone. There is no freedom, no liberty and there is no justice. I will give you a prophecy: The world is headed toward a George Orwell movie. The whole world is headed toward a dark, occult prison. There's something going on here on this earth that if we don't awaken from we are going to find out we have all been had.....America is being destroyed, nobody knows why or how and nobody understands the secret societies...The entire world contains an occult, hidden system.

* From Disraeli's political novel, 'Coningsby', rumored to be based on Nathan Mayer Rothschild. According to his biographer, Robert Blake, the character of Sidonia is a cross between Lionel de Rothschild and Disraeli himself.

Intro
A very expanded version of a former post from the 29th of april - I am republishing this on this 1st of may 2017, Beltane Day (Baal), Walpurgis Night, also the day Adam Weishaupt founded the Illuminati (see here fx), and since this piece is dealing with the exposure and origin of dark forces and sinister secret societies, what could be synchromystically more fitting in terms of counteracting the adverse effects of the 1st of may! :-)

'Beltane can be translated as “Baal fire”... La Baal Tinne, Beltane, Beltain.. when the Sun reaches 15 ° Taurus, which lately has been happening more towards May 4-6th - source)

Approximately 5,000 years ago, the rising of Aldebaran - known as the Eye of the Bull - marked the vernal equinox and was the beginning of the Babylonian New Year which back then were ...at....drumroll...15˚ Taurus. Why is this interesting? Because the Aldobrandini Black Nobility took their name from Aldebaran and Babylon pertaining to this symbolism and timing.

BeltaneThis is going to be a very versatile, non-linear and unconventional mental travelogue - a multifaceted stream-of-consciousness excavation down the rabbit holes about powers behind Zionism, Babylon, Freemasons, Mossad, Sabbateans, Jesuits, Bohemian Grove, Venetians, ancient and astronomical connections, The Electric Universe, Saturn, and more. The following crypto-conspiranautic expedition will seem quite wacky if you are not in the know about these subjects already - if your mind is not very open, then get off the train now.

This is provisional dot-connecting written as internal research notes published for the first time. A lightning-fast fluid non-linear mental expedition that took 2 days, with esoteric interjected irregular pitstops and internal bullet points along the way, and although the expedition is occasionally sprawling, unstructured and fragmented, readers in the know will recognize some things or two and connect some of the dots and see a clear structure. You'll have to do your own further research from these tidbits here. While Venetians, Jesuits and Zionism play a central role in this saga, there is no definite conclusion as to who the 'master spider' is IMO. The use of the blanket term 'Illuminati' is used for convenience except when it's directly relating to Adam Weishaupt's order of the Illuminati.

At the bottom you will also find a very interesting response by the extremely knowledgeable M.K. Stylinski AKA Infrakshun

Finally, for the sake of historical interest, I have included a long quotation list by famous people about the Jesuits at the very botttom also *

Chabad Lubavitch - The Putin/Trump commonality

Ivanka and Jared prayed at the grave of the Lubavitcher Rebbe [Mendel Schnerson was revered as the Messiah, an extremely influential shadow master]: Why is the US Honoring a Racist Rabbi? Just a few days before the big election…

Something is truly wrong with this guy, and I agree: There is Something Very Strange about This Man - Kushner - You Tube
Jared Kushner was the head of the Chabad-Lubavitch at Harvard.

Kushner, who is now involved with nearly all facets of the campaign, now the most powerful man in the US.

Rabbi Lazar was born in 1964 to parents who were among the first emissaries of Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson. Berel Lazar was personally assigned to Russia by Rabbi Schneerson

Lazar is chief rabbi in Russia and known as 'Putin's Rabbi'

Lazar was funded by the same Jewish oligarchs that helped Putin rise to the Russian Presidency

Lazar became acquainted with Israeli diamantaire Lev Leviev

Leviev had business with Kushner og Leviev supports the Lubavitchers
'..nurtured ties with Vladimir Putin… He received the blessings for success in business and personal support of the Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Schneerson for his philanthropic activities, which include “an army of some 10,000 Jewish functionaries ...”

Federation of Jewish Communities of the CIS (FJC)...Current heads of the organization are: Lev Leviev, President of FJC of the CIS Rabbi Berel Lazar

With all this set before us, we see why it is interesting that Jared Kushner was forking over cash to Lev Leviev. It helps us begin to see the real connection between Trump and Putin: Donald Trump connects to Chabad operative Jared Kushner, who connects to Chabad operative Lev Leviev, who connects to Vladimir Putin… So the same Jewish group that brought Putin to power in Russia is now bringing Trump to power in the United States.

Chabad's power derives from two services
1. They work with Israeli intelligence in criminal and intelligence operations.
2. They promote a supremacist ideology that encourages Zionists to do dirty deeds

Lubavitchers mix with the upper echelons of each host country
"It's not enough that Chabad's man in D.C. knows the name and phone number of just about every congressman, senator and foreign ambassador in the nation's capital -- he also knows their legislative assistants, their secretaries and the people who clean their offices."
Chabad is a criminal organization with ties to Mossad. Chabad houses provides safe houses and storefronts for Israeli intelligence and criminal activity. This includes everything from terrorism to money laundering, drug running to prostitution.
Wayne Madsen writes: 'In Bangkok, Israeli military pilots and drivers who stay at the Chabad House there train Thai Army commandos, divers, and pilots who are fighting a Muslim secessionist movement along the southern border with Malaysia. 'Bangkok police have long suspected Chabad House as a center for the Israeli Mafia, which runs its Ecstasy and Ice trade from Bangkok for all of Southeast and East Asia.

The controversy of Jared Kushner: A suspected gangster within the Trump White House

Near the end of his comments, Netanyahu sought to show how well he knows Kushner, whose father, Charles Kushner, has donated generously to Israeli causes. "Can I reveal, Jared, how long we’ve known you?" said Netanyahu, looking to Jared Kushner, 36, who was sitting in the front row, next to his wife, Ivanka Trump."Well, he was never small. He was always big. He was always tall," Netanyahu said, implying he had known Kushner since he was a baby.

Barry Chamish and the Israeli Deep State
I was sorry to hear that author, investigative journalist and radio host Barry Chamish passed away on August 23rd. Barry was always my favorite right-wing Zionist. Unlike the neocons, he actually cared about truth. And unlike so many people these days, he had the guts to pursue the truth even when it led to uncomfortable places. In this interview recorded for Barry’s show in winter 2015, we discussed Charlie Hebdo (the French 9/11) and then 9/11 itself. Barry suspected inside jobs in both cases – actually, he more than suspected it in the case of 9/11. Kudos to him for standing up and telling a very painful truth: that certain high-ranking Zionists seem to be involved in this kind of false flag terror, which does not bode well for Jews or for anyone else. After this interview, Barry contributed an article to We Are NOT Charlie Hebdo voicing his suspicions that Bibi Netanyahu was behind the Charlie Hebdo massacre.

Barry Chamish (1952-2016)

"There are not many people who have the courage to take on the Israeli Deep State. Barry Chamish certainly did not expect that his own path would take that direction. Far from it, Chamish's early reporting career began as a journalist for some movie and music trade rags. By his own words, he didn't go looking for dirty secrets; they found him.
- Barry Chamish (1952-2016) Exposed Illuminati

Comment: Notable that VT writer Barry Chamish was Shimon Peres’ biggest critic, & was found dead a month before Peres’ own death, blocking the scathing historical statement on Peres that Barry would have made … Canadian-born rebel Jew Barry Chamish often presented evidence tying Peres to horrid murders & crimes … Age 64, Chamish wrote how his health problems seemed like a Mossad-induced-disease ‘hit’ in progress

In his book about the 1995 assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, Chamish gave evidence that Rabin’s killing was a plot under the aegis of Peres, who became Prime Minister after the murder, & that the accused ‘lone gunman’ was not the killer at all … Chamish documented Peres as tied to the Vatican [NB! Peres was Jesuit schooled by the way], western war-mongers & NWO globalists … & especially horrible crimes by which Israeli Sephardi & Yemenite Jewish children died in horrible agony in nuclear experiments [Peres was responsible it seems] (In Israel, dominant ‘white’ European Ashkenazi ‘Khazarian’ Jews, demean darker-skinned Middle Eastern & Spanish-heritage etc Jews, who had lived peacefully amongst Arabs & Muslims for centuries, let alone black African Jews often not allowed into Israel at all) Chamish saw Israel’s government as neo-satanists eager to kill even other Jews who were sincerely & non-satanically religious, or in any way opposition to the NWO … Chamish led in exposing the links of Israeli leaders, to Rothschild-connected ‘Frankist’ Jews, following 18th century Jacob Frank & 17th century Jewish ‘messiah’ Shabtai Tzvi (Sabbatai Zevi) … Chamish also led in pointing out satanic – illuminati themes in Israel’s Rothschild-donated-&-designed Israeli Supreme Court building

The library is divided in three levels, symbolically representing the last three degrees of Freemasonry (31st, 32nd and honorary 33rd) . The first level is reserved for lawyers, the second is reserved for judges and the books on the third level can only be read by retired judges. The library’s way of functioning – where some information is the exclusive privilege of a selected few – directly correlates with the functioning of occult orders, where teachings of a certain degree can only be given if the initiates have successfully cleared the previous degrees.
“Among the ancient Mysteries the pomegranate was also considered to be a divine symbol of such peculiar significance that its true explanation could not be divulged. It was termed by the Cabiri “the forbidden secret.” Many Greek gods and goddesses are depicted holding the fruit or flower of the pomegranate in their hands, evidently to signify that they are givers of life and plenty. Pomegranate capitals were placed upon the pillars of Jachin and Boaz standing in front of King Solomon’s Temple; and by the order of Jehovah, pomegranate blossoms were embroidered upon the bottom of the High Priest’s ephod”
-Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

 

As stated by Hall, pomegranates were placed on top of the two pillars standing in front of Solomon’s Temple. If you have minimal knowledge of Masonic teachings, you know that the Temple of Solomon and the pillars named Jachin and Boaz are of an utmost importance.

“The capitals were enriched by pomegranates of bronze, covered by bronze net-work, and ornamented with wreaths of bronze; and appear to have imitated the shape of the seed-vessel of the lotus or Egyptian lily, a sacred symbol to the Hindus and Egyptians.”

Illuminati-Jesuits, Frankist-Sabbateans, Rothschilds, Zionism, Israel, Henry Ford, Hitler, B'nai B'rith, Albert Pike, and weird connections

Rabbi Marvin Antelman is a rabbi and a chemist, author of the ‘Encylopedia of Electro-Chemical Potentials’ and of the ‘Encyclopedia of Thermo-Plastic Materials’. He is a holder of numerous patents related to these topics. However, he may be most well-known for his two-volume book, ‘To Eliminate the Opiate,’ an exposé of the Secret Societies who control the world and who have scapegoated the Jewish people in the process.

According to Rabbi Antelman, the Sabbateans hated Jews and sought their extinction. He cites rabbis who warned as far back as 1750 that if the Jews didn't stop the Sabbateans, they would be destroyed by them.
Antelman explains how the Sabbatean-Frankist apostate cult sprang from a Jewish community within the Ottoman Empire during the 1600s and it quickly spread to Eastern Europe. The fundamental principle of the Sabbatean-Frankists was/is(?) the belief that the Messiah would return either when all people had become good or when all people had become bad. It was the reasoning of the Sabbateans that it would be easier to hasten the arrival of the Messiah by pursuing the dark path, so they set about inverting the the practices of their own faith, with the ostensible purpose of precipitating the return of the Messiah. Their leader, Shabbatai Zevi (aka Tzvi), born in Izmir, Turkey (the city formerly known as Smyrna) was believed to be the Messiah by his followers and he became so influential that the Ottoman sultan forced Zevi to convert to Islam. According to Canadian-Jewish author, Henry Makow, “After his ‘conversion,’ over a million followers, who later included financiers like the Rothschilds, imitated his example. But they didn’t just pretend to be Muslims or Christians. They pretended to be Jews as well. They were the forebears of the Illuminati and Communism.”

In 1756, the Frankists (successors of the Sabbateans) were excommunicated by establishment rabbis for their heretical and frankly Satanic practices but they re-emerged under numerous stealthy guises, as the leaders of both the Reform AND Conservative (Hasidic) Jewish movements, as explained here by Antelman. Previously, Judaism had consisted in followers of the Torah but now, these wedges had been inserted into the Jewish faith. The largest Hasidic sect today is called Satmar and it is based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is known for its ultra-Orthodoxy and its opposition to Zionism. Many Reform Jews share the latter view. (Rabbi Marvin Antelman does not and is a hardcore Zionist).

An interesting aside here, is that Donald Trump’s son-in-law and his family, despite dressing like typical rich people, they are members of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement, which, similarly to the Sabbateans, claim to have been led by “the Messiah” (Moshiach), one Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who although deceased since 1994, is still revered by many as the leader of the Chabad movement. There is a vociferous group in Israel who do not consider Chabad’s ideology to be Jewish. They consider Chabad to be a white collar criminal organization, who engage in financial fraud, tax evasion, money-laundering, as well as being linked to several child abuse cases. Chabad is based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and they are distinguished for their “outreach” of non-affiliated Jews. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump’s association with Chabad may become more meaningful, as I continue to quote here from Henry Makow:

“Communist defector Bella Dodd revealed that during the 1930’s the Communist Party had 1,100 members join the Catholic Priesthood. They became Bishops, Cardinals and Popes. [Remember, according to Makow, Communism is an invention of the Sabbateans]. “By adopting this chameleon strategy, this Satanic cult infiltrated and subverted most governments and religions, and established an invisible tyranny without drawing much attention. In the words of the gifted Jewish researcher Clifford Shack, ‘Through infiltration, stealth and cunning, this invisible network has come to rule us all. Forty-one years after Shabbatai Zevi’s death, in 1717, they would infiltrate Masonry guilds in England and establish Freemasonry… [Zevi’s successor] Jacob Frank would have a great impact on the inner core of Freemasonry known as the Illuminati, formed in 1776. Freemasonry would become the hidden force behind events like the [American, French and Russian] revolutions, the creations of the UN and Israel, both World Wars (including the Holocaust!), and the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers who, together with their father, tried to thwart the efforts of the network on American soil.’”The Sabbatean/Frankists were also referred to as the "Cult of the All-Seeing Eye"

Barry Chamish:

'Frankfurt at the time was the headquarters of the Jesuit, Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati, as well as Rothschild Brothers' financial empire. This is worth repeating: Frankfurt was the birthplace of both the Illuminati and the Rothschild empire. When Jacob Frank entered the city, the alliance between the two had already begun. Weishaupt provided the conspiratorial resources of the Jesuit Order, while the Rothschilds contributed the money. What was missing was a means to spread the agenda of the Illuminatti and that the Frankists added with their network of agents throughout the Christian and Islamic worlds.
Jacob Frank became instantly wealthy because he was given a nice handout by the Rothschilds of Frankfurt. There is no other explanation.
And from this starting point, Rabbi Antelman gave us a blueprint for the war against Judaism...A movement of complete evil now took hold. The Jesuits' goal was the destruction of the Protestant Reformation leading to a return of one pope sitting in judgement on all mankind. The Rothschilds goal was to control the wealth of the planet. And the Frankist vision was the destruction of Jewish ethics to be replaced by a religion based on the exact opposite of God's intentions. When these factions blended, a bloody war against humanity, with the Jews on the front lines, erupted and it is reaching its very pinnacle at this moment....Rabbi Antelman proves that the American President Woodrow Wilson was thoroughly corrupted by the Frankists through their agent Colonel House. It was Wilson who put an end to America's open immigration policy. Until then, despite all their despair, most Eastern European Jews rejected Palestine as an escape route, the majority choosing America as their destination. From now on very few would enjoy that option. It would have to be Palestine or nowhere.We now jump to 1933. Less than 1% of the German Jews support Zionism [Makow says 3% - of course there were Bolsjeviks but many were not but secular unaffiliated]. Many try to escape from Naziism by boat to Latin and North American ports but the international diplomatic order was to turn them back. Any German Jew who rejected Palestine as his shelter would be shipped back to his death. By 1934, the majority of German Jews got the message and turned to the only Jewish organization allowed by the Nazis, the Labour Zionists. For confirmation of the conspiracy between them and Hitler's thugs read The Transfer Agreement by Edwin Black [unrefuted book], Perfidy by Ben Hecht or The Scared And The Doomed by Jacob Neuberger. The deal cut worked like this. The German Jews would first be indoctrinated into Bolshevism in Labour Zionism camps and then, with British approval, transferred to Palestine. Most were there by the time the British issued the White Paper banning further Jewish immigration. The Labour Zionists got the Jews they wanted, and let the millions of religious Jews and other non-Frankists perish in Europe without any struggle for their survival.

'One must bear in mind that Chamish is himself a Zionist who rejects, not the Jewish state, but merely the secular-leftist associations of Labor Zionism. This Israeli journalist is in favor of a religious or right-wing Zionism which is more devoted to military expansion of the state of Israel than even the Labor Zionists.'

Shahak’s most important academic contribution lies in the fact that he — as a speaker of Hebrew — is able to provide unparalleled insight into what is written in the Hebrew-language press itself about these contentious topics: “All modern studies on Judaism, particularly by Jews, …bear the unmistakable marks of their origin: deception, apologetics or hostile polemics, indifference or even active hostility to the pursuit of truth,”

He says a heretical cult, the "Sabbatean Frankists," controls organized Jewry, including Zionism and Freemasonry.

Up to a million people attend Chabad services at least once a year. Numerous campuses have such centers and the Chabad website states that hundreds of thousands of children attend Chabad summer camps..) According to the NY Times, Schneerson "presided over a religious empire that reached from the back streets of Brooklyn to the main streets of Israel and by 1990 was taking in an estimated $100 million a year in contributions. Schneerson believes Jews are the acme of Creation: "The general difference between Jews and non-Jews: A Jew was not created as a means for some [other] purpose; he himself is the purpose, since the substance of all [divine] emanations was created only to serve the Jews." "The important things are the Jews, because they do not exist for any [other] aim; they themselves are [the divine] aim." "The entire creation [of a non-Jew] exists only for the sake of the Jews." When Schneerson died in 1994, he was awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his contribution to "global morals." According to Schneerson, Jews are the Priests while the Noahide Laws provide "a religion for the rank and file." Eggert quotes another Lubavitcher rabbi: "When examining the chain of frightening events [since 9-11] with a Chassidic eye, we see that the US is being pushed toward fulfilling its historic role of teaching the Sheva Mitzvos [i.e. Noahide laws] to the world." According to Eggert, Freemasons have always called themselves "Noachids" and incorporated the statutes into their Constitution as early as 1723. - See more at:

The formidable erudite Stylinski AKA Infrakshun:

'As bizarre as it may sound, these are all part and parcel of Chabad Lubavitch literature, most typically the Noahide (or Noachide) Laws which are revered, respected and taken very seriously indeed. As German author and journalist Wolfgang Eggert reminds us:
“By 1723 freemasonry had already incorporated the Noachidic statutes into its Constitutions… Charges & Regulations; freemasons have always called themselves ‘Noachids’. In 1991 when the first war on Iraq was started, George Bush Senior forwarded this peculiar “blessing” to the whole nation: The seven Noachidic laws were solemnly declared to be the foundation of the United States by the Congress and the President.” [2]
Which may, in part, offer an insight as to why the Jewish Kabbalah has been so important in freemasonry and how Zio-Conservatism has comprehensively infiltrated US politics. Lubavitchers – or if you prefer, Chabadniks – are also embedded in the socio-political infrastructure of the United States. “

Question: Are Chabad Lubavitchers also Sabbateans? Either they are identical or very closely interlinked!

Henry Makow has written about the Sabbateans. The Sabbateans pre-date the Freemasons and exist to this day.

It seems that the Sabbateans are pre-dated by Freemasonry since it's origin is probably more than 12.000 years old. More on that below.

NB! Update on The Jewish Question, 2018

'Dr. Guyenot’s thesis, in a nutshell, is that a tiny Jewish elite, representing a very small fraction of Jews, has hijacked the idea of God and turned it to their own aggrandizement. Over two and a half millennia, this elite has terrorized its own people to enforce their sense of separateness from other groups, garnering wealth and power in the process. Today, much of the Jewish population neither believes in God nor practices most of the prescribed Jewish rituals. But the terrorizing of Jewish people by their own leadership, the enforced sense of separation from other communities, and the amassing of wealth and power by the Jewish elite whose prime weapon is the adaptation of millennia-old brainwashing processes to today’s secular setting, all continue—with Israel replacing Yahweh as a central focus of worship.Dr. Guyenot suggests that ordinary Jewish people, perhaps even more than non-Jews, are the biggest victims of their own elite. His book is an invitation to Jews to become aware of the bars of their mental prison, and then step outside into the light.'

An Open Letter by Jewish Rabbis Regarding the New Polish Law,
by Rabbi Moshe Beck – New York [Holocaust survivor], Rabbi Meir Hirsh – Jerusalem, and Rabbi Alter Hachhouser – London:

'...facts that have been proven and published widely: the collusion of the Zionist movement with the Nazis*, and their impeding the saving of Jews when it interfered with their nationalistic project. This is not to mention that the Zionists have a long history of stirring up trouble for Jews in countries around the world in order to induce them to flee to their state for safety( ....In reality, the state of Israel does not only escalate international anti-Semitism, but has never brought peace or security to Jews. The Zionists are those who created a Jewish – Arab conflict through creating “a Jewish homeland” in Palestine. They lit the fire of hatred in the Arab countries towards Jews.,,In the year 1948 immediately following the creation of the state of Israel, her founding fathers, through trickery and fear-tactics, were successful in importing over a million Jews from Arab countries to their new state. Many of these unfortunate individuals were incarcerated in closed camps and guarded meticulously twenty-four hours a day. Their property was taken away from them, and they were not allowed to contact the outside world. Their children were forcefully taken away to secular Zionist education and then into their Army.

This was the case even though they were entirely religious Jews. Many of these children were kidnapped by the Zionist movement and scandalously sold for profit(4). If anybody dared to protest, they were imprisoned, found themselves without any rights or any source of livelihood and in many cases, they were murdered.

Through these criminal acts and similar terror tactics, the State of Israel stifled the voice of opposition and falsely presented itself as the representative of Judaism and World Jewry. In truth it is self-evident that the state of Israel can in no way, shape or form represent world Jewry'

'I don’t see myself as taking on “Jewry” per se. Orthodox Judaism, yes. Israeli Zionism, yes. But since both of those institutions are at their core fundamentally anti-Judaic, I view my work as an expression of love for Judaic people and as a conduit for their liberation. A prime source of Jew hate is Talmudism itself, which oppressively tyrannizes and micromanages the lives of Judaics born through no fault of their own, into its psychic prison, while Israeli Zionism imprisons Judaics in a permanent war footing with the indigenous people of the Middle East. To free Judaic persons from these two prisons is an act of compassion and charity. We should never forget that our work is pro-Judaic. It is the Talmudic and Kabbalistic rabbis and Zionists who are putting Judaic people on the road to ruin.'
- 'Orthodox Judaism Is a Religion of Lying and Deceit' - The Saker Interviews Michael Hoffman, 2018

”By tying "Jews" into the Zionist equation you serve as a recruiter for the Talmud, Midrash and Kabbalah, all of which teach that there is no mercy or love for Jews among the goyim; that it is "impossible for the goyim not to hate the Jews. The Hitlers and the Henry Fords played into the hands of the rabbis by confirming this racial maxim of theirs. Hitler and Ford were, in this way, unconscious allies and agents of the rabbis!...We are fighting not a race of people but a spiritual and ideological toxin, which infects Judaics and gentiles with equal virulence.”
- Michael A. Hoffman II

'Also modern Jews, particularly those in Israel are not genetic Jews at all but are Khazars among other things. Fact is it's not Jews, and least not Real Jews (whoever they are), but they DO call themselves Jews, in fact they are Canaanites but that is a BIG subject which requires a little research and is a state of play which has remained for some two and a half thousand years. ... What is called Judaism these days was actually taken over by their mortal enemies the Edomites, a race of Canaanites, who had occupied ancient Israel in the absence of the Israelites and upon their return to Zion in 538 BC from the Babylonian captivity, they had no choice but to accommodate their ancient enemies. Then, the infiltration of the Canaanites progressed further still as a result of Hyracanus' unwise policy:......The true Jews are now probably lost and the trouble in the middle-east in not between Arabs and Jews but Arabs and Edomites. The Edomites were a Canaanite people who infiltrated into Israel in the mid classical period and became what are called The Pharisees....During the Babylonian captivitythere was a free admixture of the various Canaanite tribes; the Edomites intermarried with the Canaanite branch of the Judahites and Chers. Edom means red; ever since the Captivity,red has meant revolution and Canaanite massacre of the innocents. The Rothschilds, when they backed the formation of the Illuminati, changed their name from Bauer to Roth (red) child (shield).

The Canaanite Deception

 

Hasdai ibn Shaprut, who was foreign minister to Abd-al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, in his letter to King Joseph of the Chazars (about 960 AD) … speaks of the tradition according to which the Chazars once dwelt near the Seir Mountains [The ‘Seir Mountains’ are none other than the original land of Esau-Edom – ‘Thus dwelt Esau in mount Seir: Esau is Edom’ (Genesis 36:8). Seir was a mountain range sought of the Dead Sea and was also known as the ‘land of Edom’ (Genesis 36:21). The Seir mountains were the home of the Edomites for nearly a millennium (The Edomites arrived in Edom or Seir at the end of the 14th and beginning of the 13th century B.C. Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol. 6, p. 372) Thus we have it from Jewish sources that the Khazars originally ‘dwell near the Seir Mountains’ so are racially of Edomite stock. But how and when did Edomites get to Khazaria? There is evidence that in the 6th century BC, some of the Edomites fled their homeland of Seir and migrated north, ‘After the fall of Jerusalem, in 586 BC, the Edomites began to press northward (Ezekiel 36:5).”
(The New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible, ed. by Henry S. Gehman, The Westminster Press, Philadelphia, 1970, p. 418}].” (The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. IV, (1905), p. 3).

Shabbatai Zevi and his succesor, Jacob Frank, the Sabbatean Satanic false messiah of 1666 called his religion 'The holy religion of Edom' (ironically, the new titanic transhumanist project, NEOM, officially the world's biggest project, is geographically located overlapping the old Edom - extremely important video)

Zionism betrayed their own - Hitler, the creator of Israel
The Jewish writer J.G. Burg reports in his book Schuld und Schicksal (Guilt and Destiny),uncontradicted and unrefuted since its publication (in 1962):
"It would bother me little if cholera or Bolshevism came over Germany. As far as I am concerned both plagues can come over the Germans.... I would sooner see the demise of the German Jews than the demise of the State of Israel for the Jews."
Burg deduces from this that Weizmann only wanted to realize his Zionist concept, without regard for the fate of the German Jews.”Wir verweisen nur auf die Feststellung des jüdischen Schriftstellers J.G.

About the Transfer Agreement:
'This book documents the agreement between Nazi Germany and an organization of German Zionists in 1933 to salvage some German Jewish assets and the voluntary emigration of German Jews to Palestine before the Third Reich implemented expulsion and then extermination. The Transfer Agreement rescued some 60,000 German Jews. A sweeping, worldwide economic boycott of Germany by Jews helped spur a deal between the Nazis and Zionists.[3]...There was no effort to deny the history documented in this book'
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Transfer_Agreement

"...it is our obligation to make it known in order that everyone should understand that the Zionists are not the nation of Israel... and it is most definitely our holy obligation to announce before those nations of the world that the Zionists are not the spokespeople of the nation of Israel..."
- Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum

"It is well known that it was possible to redeem Jews from the Nazis with money, and save many hundreds of thousands of Jews in Hungary . . .THE ZIONIST LEADERS WHO NOW SIT IN GOVERNMENT PREVENTED IT!"

Anway, the Allies were murderously and relentlessly carpet bombing German civilians deliberately fx. Today the Germans and the Jews (and the whole world) are brainwashed by the Zionists, Jesuits and the powers behind them and official history is an unimaginable monstrous web of lies. There is no denying that Jews suffered in a campaign of persecution, but the story is more complicated since both Jews and Germans - according to fx. Dieter Ruggeberg - were victims of a sinister campaign, which was socially engineered to become polarized by deeper underlying forces - and most historians don't write about it, and victors always write history anyway.

The other side of the story: In Hellstorm the darkest side of Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill, Truman and Eisenhower is exposed, including their plans not just for the destruction of the Nazi empire, but for ordinary German people.

Thomas Goodrich has paid a great service to the world writing this book. The apocalypse that came about Germany in 1944-1947 was so appalling and dreadful that defies comprehension. Reading this book you will learn what humans can do, what kind of hatred and degradation obscured Western civilization during and after WWII, and you will understand over which pains is our current world based on. Goodrich has accumulated first hand testimonia and reports on all aspects of the Allies's crimes, from the carpet bombings on civilians to the horrors of Russian extermination campaigns, from the massacre of refugees to the death camps for German soldiers. The reader is spared nothing. Through the light of this book, figures such as Churchill, Roosevelt, Harris, and of course Stalin and the nauseating Ilya Ehrenburg will transfigure to show their real, wicked faces. This book will change your view, not only of the war, but of the world and the human being. You will never be the same after reading it. Here and there, you can question a figure or a death toll, but you will be shocked to the bones by the personal accounts. Next time that you read in Wikipedia that Roosevelt was one of the top three U.S. Presidents, along with Abraham Lincoln and George Washington, I hope you will start to question the 'official' history.

Interesting quotes:


"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig [Hitler]."
-Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960)

"The enemy is the German Reich and not Nazism, and those who still haven't understood this, haven't understood anything."
-- Churchill's chief counselor Robert Lord Vansittart (September 1940 to foreign minister Lord Halifax)
"The war wasn't only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales
markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn't want to."
- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)

"We made a monster, a devil out of Hitler. Therefore we couldn't disavow it after the war. After all, we mobilized the masses against the devil himself. So we were forced to play our part in this diabolic scenario after the war. In no way we could have pointed out to our people that the war only was an economic preventive measure."
-- US foreign minister James Baker (1992)

"We didn't go to war in 1939 to save Germany from Hitler...or the continent from fascism. Like in 1914, we went to war for the not lesser noble cause that we couldn't accept a German hegemony over Europe."
-- Sunday Correspondent, London (17.9.1989)
"Not the political doctrine of Hitler has hurled us into this war. The reason was the success of his increase in building a new economy. The roots of war were envy, greed and fear."
-- Major General J.F.C. Fuller, historian, England


All Wars Are Bankers Wars [English subtitles]

Yes, Israel is a despicable terrorstate (ask some of the finest Jewish famous scholars like Noam Chomsky, Norman Finkelstein, Israel Shahak, et al), and it probably will be destroyed in an Albert Pike'sque/Sabbatean NWO design if the puppet masters have their way. Most Jews are as ignorant and expendable zombiefied sheeple about the occultism and end game of the elites as non-jewish white Americans and Europeans. Psychopaths can only care about their own hardened, unempathic evil ego and interests.

'Zionism is both anti-Jewish, and anti-Christian. It is an atheistic repudiation of every characteristic of the Christian principle and the more down-to-earth Jewish principles of altruism which exist in every moderate religious affiliation to truth. Zionism breathed life into what came to be known as Nazism since it was founded on the very same tenets of racism and supremacy. Ironically, it was Adolf Hitler funded and supported by Zionists who took the battle against Talmudic teachings and political deception of Zionism; an inverted and distorted version of a truth. Finally, it was Hitler’s despotism and Anglo-American desire for war which provided a further layer of propaganda for the true instigators of chaos. It is in this sense that Jews and the rest of humanity have been had. There is no doubt that Zionism is at the forefront of covert operations to continue and extend this chaos culminating in their prophesied World War III. For Occult Zionists this is both a political and ideological drive. Global in its ambitions it extends far beyond the remit of Israeli nationalism. Accordingly, this relatively modern incarnation of Ashkenazi supremacy represents the best tool for psychopaths to create periodic revolutions, with monotheistic religions as the fail-safe mechanism to make sure that humanity keeps to the rule book.

Conversely, – and the point has to be hammered home – it is an absurdity to think that there is a strictly Jewish conspiracy when Judaism itself was merely the instrument to control the mass mind over centuries, with an extremely effective Middle Eastern imperialism taking precedence. It’s also true to say that Judaism itself has been hijacked from its very inception, as we will see. The inculcated psychology of Jewish victimhood and its historic propaganda was necessary for the fulfillment of psychopathic conquest. Ethnocentrism, race supremacy, blood and soil, and the institution of atheist totalitarian regimes under Communism, Nazism, corporatism and the neo-liberal economics of our present age – occult Zionism lies behind these major pathologies in some form of another. It is therefore hugely simplistic to make ordinary Jews culpable for what is after all, a very long unbroken exercise in social engineering. No wonder common traits in Jewish psychology display both a creative genius and a variety of neuroses in equal measure as the result of the distillation of a cognitive elite predicated on being “chosen.”

It is this cultural victimhood that is based on the reality of persecution yet, has morphed into a veritable industry that insulates the Jewish tribe and by default, Zionism from criticism from within and without. It has become a very effective vicious circle. Modern day Jews ARE victims but the tragedy is that the propaganda which has been created by Zionism prevents them from seeing the real nature of this bias which increasingly defines Jewish meaning. It points to a profound truth about their place in the world: that Establishment Zionists are using Jews for a specific purpose – to be the primary tools for pathocratic world vision. So, the authoritarian followers within Judaism and Judaic cults such as Chabad Lubavitch have been specially chosen not to act as inherently spiritual beings destined to preside over gentiles and inaugurate a new theocratic Eden for all – as if that weren’t bad enough – but chosen as the most convenient tribe to transform the world into Chaos from which a global Pathocracy can emerge. It is in this way that it is not about any race or religion it is purely about a psychopathic elite.'
- Babylonian roots of Occult Zionism.

A sidenote: Pinchas Goldschmidt, the president of the Conference of European Rabbis, told an interviewer on Russia Today that the Jews find themselves “in the middle” of a clash of civilizations between Christians and Muslims, but that in Europe Muslims are the “natural allies” of Jews.In the Middle East, however, Jews find themselves allying with Christians and other religious minorities against the Muslim regimes, and indeed have used their influence over the West to initiate wars and proxy wars against Israel’s Muslim, Persian and Arab enemies. And it is Israel and Zionist propagandists behind the fiercely anti-Islamic media campaigns associated with the Israeli-crafted ‘War on Terror.’

 

What all of this amounts to is a Machiavellian Zionist double game. Both Westerners and Middle Easterners, Christians and Muslims, are being used as cannon fodder for different Zionist imperatives. The Zionist architects of this elaborate geopolitical chess game aim to undermine, weaken and subjugate both Westerners and Middle Easterners in their own homelands. White Europeans are targets in Europe, where masses of Muslim, Arab and African immigrants and refugees are being wielded as pawns to further the Kalergi plan of White displacement and genocide. But at the same time, White Westerners are being manipulated to make incessant war and terrorism against Arab/Muslim societies and regimes that come into conflict with imperial Israel and do not bow to the whims of international finance capitalism, aka globalism.

It is important not to play into this Zionist ruse that seeks to divide Whites and Arabs, Christians and Muslims, having them fight it out to the death while the Jewish extremists sit back and reap the spoils of this engineered confrontation. Both of these plots, the Kalergi plan and the War on Terror, are primarily Zionist in origin and should be vigorously opposed on both fronts. It is not enough to only condemn one of these agendas and not the other, as many in the respective “white nationalist” and “anti-Zionist” camps do.

We should look at all of the information available, and identify all of the nefarious agendas and victims thereof, and then formulate a principled position that doesn’t turn a blind eye to any of the victims of this genocidal, multi-faceted scheme.'

By the way: I don't subscribe to the 'good of Judaism' (goes without saying that I don't - neither to Zionism, Fascism, Nazism, Hitlerism, etc.) - or traditional exoteric religions on the grounds that they have been extremely destructive and manipulated in the extreme, but subscribe to authentic spirituality and esoteric understanding, and I think that Israel should never have been invented. Most German Jews wanted to assimilate but the Zionists (Sabbateans) would not permit that because the plan was Israel from the get-go. Rudolf Steiner also said that Jews were not allowed to assimilate.

Zionism, Ashke-Zio-Nazi connections and high strangeness
'The Nazi leadership took no legal action against B'nai B'rith, which was allowed to continue its subversive activities. B'nai B'rith had 12 000 members in 80 lodges in Germany, three of them in Berlin. B'nai B'rith was the only Jewish organization allowed by Hitler to remain active and open during the Nazi regime after 1933. (Viktor Ostretsov, "Freemasonry, Culture, and Russian History", Moscow, 1999), although propaganda claims that it was dissolved in Germany in 1937 (Lexikon des Judentums"). But Hitler actually first in 1939 closed B'nai B'rith's operations in Germany. It was not until the war had begun, in November 1939, that the B'nai B'rith had their documents confiscated. The Jewish VOBB lodge had its library confiscated in April 1938.....It turned out that it was the Jewish masonic lodge B'nai B'rith, in co-operation with the Zionist organization, LICA (Ligue International contre l'Antisemitisme) in Paris that was behind the so called Kristallnacht on 9 November 1938 [False flag?

'As soon as the Nazis assumed power in 1933, the Zionists gained a protected political status. After the Reichstag fire, the Nazis crushed virtually all political opposition and closed 600 newspapers. But not the Zionists nor their newspaper which was hawked from every street corner, and saw its circulation multiply five times to 38,000. Zionism was "the only separate political philosophy sanctioned by the Third Reich."The Zionist uniform was the only non-Nazi uniform allowed in Germany. Same with their flag. Hebrew was mandated in Jewish schools. Still, German Jews wanted to stay in Germany "even as second class citizens, even reviled and persecuted." But the Zionists scorned the German Jews saying they deserved to be persecuted for wanting to assimilate." - source
"in a 1937 letter, ex-German Chancellor (1930-1932) Heinrich Brüning revealed to Churchill just who backed his successor, Adolph Hitler: 'I didn't, and do not even today for understandable reasons, wish to reveal from October 1928, the two largest regular contributors to the Nazi Party were the general managers of two of the largest Berlin banks, both of Jewish faith and one of them the leader of Zionism in Germany."
- David Irving: Churchill Warmonger vs. Hitler Peacemaker

The Real Winston Churchill by Historian David Irving - You Tube - from 13.20 to 16:19:

'Hitler was very favorably disposed toward cooperation with the Zionists and they with him. According to British historian David Irving, the two largest contributors to the Nazi Party were the general managers of two of the largest Berlin banks, both of them Jewish, and one of them the leader of Zionism in Germany. Irving uncovered this fact in a letter written by Dr. Heinrich Bruning, Chancellor of Germany before Hitler, to Winston Churchill in 1949, while researching for his book “Churchill’s War.”

Brüning [wrote that he] also knew that French sources, including the Schneider-Creusot works and both French intelligence services, had paid one half of Hitler's revenue from 1921 until 1932; that the SA and SS had before 1933 been equipped largely with revolvers and machine guns made in the United States.

'One particularly fascinating item was a coin which we assumed had belonged to my late mother-in-law’s father, John Aloysius Brown. The coin, celebrating the end of the depression, had been produced in 1932 by Stewart-Warner, a company that in its earliest incarnation had produced the speedometers that were used in the Ford Model' - source

Perhaps the coin was just a tribute to the Transfer Agreement (?), but the eye could be Masonic perhaps? Note that it was made by a Henry Ford-connected company.

 

”The bottom line is that both Nazism and Zionism were sponsored by the same banking cartel and had complimentary goals. ... This cartel, which controls the world today, has no compunction about using Jews (or anyone) as a means to an end.”
- Nazism and Zionism Sponsored by the Same Illuminati Banking CartelA Summary of the Secret Society the ”Illuminati,” Drawn from the Works of Henry Makow

According to the caretaker of Franz Bardon (a true initiate and magician), Dieter Ruggeberg:

In 1925 the book "Mein Kampf" by Adolf Hitler was published. Throughout its entire seven hundred plus pages, Jews are condemned wholesale. He writes as if the average Jewish citizen had invented the Protocols of Zion and the World Revolution. This is idiotic because it is not about the Jewish people, rather about very specific Jews. Specifically it is about those in the secret societies who intended to shape the world..Where are their names? The supposedly greatest Jew hater of all times has nothing to say about Adolphe Cremieux, Theodor Herzl, Parvus-Helphant, Leo Trotzky, Kaganovich, the Warburgs, the Rothschilds, Trebitsch-Lincoln, Bernhard Baruch, Mandell House and Walter Rathenau, just to name a few. That is absolutely ridiculous. These names simply had to be known to him because they had already been referred to by Ford in his book "The International Jew" and well known to anyone interested in politics. He openly stirs up hatred against Freemasonry which is supposed to serve the Jews, yet secretly he meets foreign High Degree Freemasons to prepare for the takeover of power. The name of the B'nai B'rith Lodge, pertaining to the centre of Freemasonry, is omitted altogether in his book.
- Ruggeberg, source

According to Dieter Ruggeberg:
"The centres of the conspiracy where thus:

1. the English Mother lodge of Freemasonry, including the Royal house of England, the Anglican Church and the high finance (City of London),

2. the American branch of the English Mother lodge of Freemasonry and the high finance,

3. the Vatican with the various orders like Knights of the Holy Grave, Jesuits, Opus Dei etc. and the connections to international Freemasonry,

4. the Zionist movement including the B'nai B'rith lodge and the ADL, the Jewish high finance and the messianic support movements from the various Christian sects.

Which where the main aims of all these conspirators?

a) Aim no. 1+2: Half of Europe should come under the slavery of communism (Jalta Conference).

b) Aim no. 1+2+3: Germany should be robbed as far as possible. The soil should be reduced as much as possible and twenty million people should be driven out from their homes. Further the German people should be in slavery for at least hundred years (60 years are over, please compare the chapter „Declaration of War“).

c) Aim no. 3: The world should become catholic and robbed in favour of the Vatican.

d) Aim no. 4: The state of Israel should be established and kept alive by oppression of the world (Holocaust museums).

Any historical researcher who does not take into consideration membership in secret societies of the power the elite, i.e. bank managers, politicians and heads of the big companies, is not at all able to discover much more than fifty per cent of the entire truth.

Henry Ford


' In Germany, Ford’s antisemitic articles from The Dearborn Independent were issued in four volumes, cumulatively titled The International Jew, the World’s Foremost Problem published by Theodor Fritsch, founder of several antisemitic parties and a member of the Reichstag. In a letter written in 1924, Heinrich Himmler described Ford as “one of our most valuable, important, and witty fighters”. Ford is the only American mentioned favorably in Mein Kampf, although he is only mentioned once: Adolf Hitler wrote: “only a single great man, Ford, [who], to [the Jews’] fury, still maintains full independence…[from] the controlling masters of the producers in a nation of one hundred and twenty millions”. ...Hitler said he regarded Ford as his “inspiration” explaining his reason for keeping Ford’s life-size portrait next to his desk

From Palestine lodge to Zion lodge - what's wrong with this picture, considering these names and Ford's anti-semitic activity?
'Edwin Black writes in "Nazi Nexus" on page 4: "Ford showed friendship to Jewish people – both the Jewish Eastern European immigrant factory workers who he treated with equality and his Jewish friends such as his next door neighbor,Rabbi Leo M. Franklin, who received a free custom-built automobile each year as a birthday present.
According to Wikipedi a, Rabbi Franklin was a member of the “Anti-Defamation League”, which in turn is merely an underground organization of the B’nai B’rith Lodge and further of the High Degree Freemasonry.I located a crucial reference from www.reformation.org regarding these underground secrets where it is written: "What most people did not realize was that the Ford Motor Company was a subsidiary of the Rockefeller owned Standard Oil Company."'
- Dieter Ruggeberg
If Ford is not showing extreme skizo-contradictory behaviour here then what is it? Giving Franklin, an ADL-member free gifts!?By the way; De-demonization of Hitler vis-a-vis the Allied does not mean auto-reglorification of Hitler or a state system with sole reference to the fact that Germany was attacked unjustly by the allies in WWII (while allegedly being supported by western weird connections and masonic factions clandestinely).

Huge collectivized state-structures can not be just, no matter what collectivized system.

Besides; the anomalies about Hitler might point to an even deeper narrative than the new pro-Hitler crowds (who see Hitler as rather immaculate and perfect, perhaps mostly due to him being the main adversary of the Zionists...or so it seems) might like - a '3rd narrative' like Dieter Ruggeberg's. Such '3rd narrative' of course is 'heresy' in their optics, just as it was 'heresy' to point out that Trump was controlled opposition, the same with Le Pen who's got most both pro and con duped (Le Pen is Mossad-Jesuit connected) just as it is heresy to speculate that Putin perhaps might be part of a controlled dialectics.

 

High Hexagon Saturn Strangeness and The Electric Universe

Masonic Lodge at 24 Rue Thiers, 35000 Rennes.
'The figure of the hexagram.... appears in the seal of one Joshua ben Asaiah, which dates from the late monarch period (about 600BC) probably about Jeremiah's time.The hexagram next appears much later on a Synagogue in Capernaum (2nd or 3d century building), ...displaying the Hitler swastika RIGHT NEXT TO IT!?
[...]

The career of the shield of David as magic not only reaches its height, but it moves beyond the realm of magic to become a symbol of the vision of the messianic redemption, which the followers of the Kabbalistic messiah Sabbatai Zevi (1666), believed they had already begun to detect.

[...]
The Modern interpretation of the emblem as a symbol of redemption, ...Star of Redemption, owes its initial rise to the stammerings of the Sabbatians about the redemption to which these amulets bear secret witness. ...The fathers of the Zionist movement, when they emblazoned the Shield of David on the flag of the Jewish rebirth of the nation, ...were in harmony with the secret intentions of those Sabbatians. ...Again their opponents compared the Zionist venture to that of the Sabbatians. ..The discovery of THIS SECRET FAMILY TREE OF THEIR SYMBOL (see p 273)......

...After 1680 the Shield of David, emanating from Prague and Vienna (the Askkenazic not the Sephardic branch of Judaism), uses it on its seal from the 18th century onward.
Sholem says the Jews of the emancipation period were looking for a "symbol of Judaism" to match the symbol of Christianity (see p 279). [...]
Recent findings in Redpaths History of the world, shows several cuts taken from Babylonian engravings that pictures the hex used as a symbol of Nimrod. It appears the symbol was also used to represent Shemesh or the sun-god. If it can be drawn that Nimrod was represented as the son of Shemesh in the same manner that the Pharaohs were considered sons of Ra, the Egyptian sun-god, then the history of the hex back to Babylon and to ancient satanic pagan religions would be unrefutable. That the hex then came to Canaan via the dispersion of the races in the figure used for Baal and his consort goddess Ashtoreth as copies of Nimrod and Simeramus, makes the hex the symbol of the snake throne of Mystery Babylon.
It is no mystery that in all the occults, the hex plays a central role in satan worship and upon and within these covens, human sacrifices are offered to lucifer. To hex someone has long been understood to mark someone for an evil curse or for death. Something we dare not overlook in this expose of the use of the stars in Israel is that Stephen in Acts 7:43 preached that the *STAR* of their god Molech was also a symbol used in Remphan, a supposed Babylonian Chaldean city of iniquity. Brother Stephen lost his life over that message. And finally, we may find chiseled on Jewish Synagogues the Hexagram, the Pentagram, and the Swastika. Those who study symbolism know that the Swastika and the Maltese Cross were adopted by Hitler because of their occult connection, and these led back to the Kabbalah.

The following is from an Historical Account of the Origin and Progress of Astronomy: With Plates Illustrating, Chiefly, the Ancient Systems – 3 Jan 2010 by John Narrien (Author) - a reproduction of a book published before 1923.

Thousands of years go by since the Chaldeans/Babylonians made such attribution of the hexagon to Saturn (Saturn is pivotal in Babylon mystery schools, Freemasonry, and esoterics in general) and then we suddenly discover this - here comes the shocker:
Mysterious NASA video of Saturn reveals impossible hexagon-shaped cloud pattern larger than planet Earth

 

Saturn's North Pole - a gargantuan hexagon - impossible to see from Earth.

 

Alledgedly this hexagon anomaly was already noticed in 1980 (Voyager) and afterwards, 30 years later with the Cassini probe, but how could the Chaldeans have acquired this knowledge thousands of years ago, a 'coincidental' idiosyncratic attribution – a hexagon – to Saturn? Either is was a vanished ancienct previous advanced civilization from earth before the flood or an extraterrestrial intelligence who provided the Sumerians/babylonians with this info....or perhaps something else (look below for the electric universe).

I figured that David Icke would have had something to say about Saturn's Hexagon (unfortunately I couldn't copy the images mentioned in the text):
“ A massive and apparently permanent swirling ‘eye’ storm two-thirds the diameter of the Earth has been recorded at Saturn’s southern pole (Fig 193). Eye-storms had not previously been found anywhere other than the Earth. There is also a permanent hexagon storm the size of two Earths at Saturn’s northern pole which has confounded scientists (Fig 194). The hexagon completes a rotation every 10 hours 39 minutes and 24 seconds – exactly the same period of Saturn’s very powerful radio emissions. The hexagon is a ‘flat’ version of a six-sided cube as is made very clear in the image of a crop circle that appeared in England in 2012 (Fig 195). The cube just happens to be an ancient symbol of Saturn. Islam, as with Christianity, Judaism and many other Archon-inspired religions, covertly worships Saturn and so its focus of worship at Mecca is a black cube, or the Kaaba which literally means cube (Fig 196). The symbol of the cross, which was used as a focus of worship way before Christianity claimed it for its own, is another geometrical expression of the hexagon/cube. The cross is, like the hexagon, a flattened out cube (Fig 197). The hexagon/cube is also expressed as the six-pointed hexagram, or Star of David. The six-pointed star is an ancient symbol of Saturn and the origin of the name Rothschild ‘Red-Shield’ (or ‘Red-Sign’ in German) after the red hexagram on their house in Frankfurt, Germany (Fig 198). The Satanist Saturnist) Rothschilds were called Bauer before they changed their name to one representing this major symbol of Saturn. The symbol is now on the flag of Rothschild-created Israel, a prime vehicle for the Archon manipulation of human society (Fig 199). The eye, cube and hexagram are all symbols of Saturn and all used profusely by the Archon networks within human society and their secret societies, religions and Satanists? This is all coincidence?? Knowledge of symbols and what they are and what they do is crucial to understanding how human society is being manipulated by the Archontic force. I have listed only a few headlines here in relation to Saturn, but I will be going much deeper into symbolism and its effect.....The hexagon and eye storms at Saturn’s poles are permanent because of the repeating sound emissions which are causing them to form in sync with the sound waves. They will remain until the sound changes. I have been highlighting since the 1990s the significance of a sound phenomenon known as cymatics in which sound is played across particles on a metal plate and the particles form into amazing geometrical shapes to reflect the vibration and resonance of the sound. When you change the sound the formations change to reflect the new vibrational ‘matrix’ and again if you put cymatics into YouTube you will see many examples of this at work ( Fig 200). When the sound is turned off the particles just lie there in random piles. The hexagon at Saturn’s North Pole, as with its geometrical expressions, the hexagram and cube, are all manifestations of a certain sound frequency which Saturn emits. Sounds and symbols are different manifestations of the same frequency. The sound is the symbol and the symbol is the sound. So by placing Saturn symbolism all around us the Archons are constantly broadcasting the sound – information – from Saturn into the planetary and human energy fields. They are doing this directly from Saturn, but the symbols underpin its effect on human perception... the symbols of Saturn emit Saturn vibrations and sound (information) beyond the frequency of the human five senses. They are holographic expressions of the Matrix (Fig 202). Standing waves are well named because they are waves that ‘stand’ or stay the same so long as the sound or flow that is keeping them constant remains the same. This is what we see with the phenomena of Saturn and its rings and eye and hexagon storms. They are standing waves, of which more later"
- Perception Deception, David Icke

The hexagram is not 'evil, neither are Freemasons per se - symbols and secret societies have been manipulated, usurped and infiltrated.

Turning to the Electric Universe the following could explain 3 huge mysteries namely 1) why Saturn's Hexagon could perhaps have been viewed directly from Earth - let alone the fact that 2) the hexagon of Saturn was known to Babylonians in an astronomical context (unheard of) - AND 3) what we today think is Sun-worship (integral to the Babylonian Brotherhood as well as to the contemporary esoteric elite) is in fact Saturn-worship, the ancient sun, mistaken for the current Sun!

Knowing these few fragments we are now equipped to put some of the pieces of the puzzle together:

Helios (the Sun) was an expression used for Saturn according to Diodurus Siculus, m.fl.
Saturn was called 'The star of the Sun' and 'Sol' according to Hyginus
Sumererans denoted Saturn as 'Shining like the Sun'
Saturn was associated with the North Pole in ancient times.
The Arctic sea was called "Cronian Sea' (after Kronos)

'"Apart from a few experts on Babylonian astronomy, historians and mythologists as a whole seem to be unaware that in Babylonian astronomical texts, the sun god Shamash and the planet Saturn merge in a most unexpected way. Where one would expect references to the Sun, one finds instead the name of the planet Saturn.....
As strange as it may seem, as difficult as it may be to comprehend, the ancient sun god is not the body we call "Sun" today. But how could such a strange identity have attached itself to the now-distant planet.

[It must be emphasized that we are not claiming our Sun was absent. What should become clear in the course of this investigation*17048 is that the Sun was simply not a subject of ancient myth, or the Age of the Gods. The celestial drama takes place at a particular location far removed from the path of the Sun.]

A first, crucial step is to distinguish the original meanings of "day" and "night."

Many hymns to Shamash and Ra — the celebrated suns of Mesopotamia and Egypt — describe these gods coming forth at the beginning of the ritual day, and the terminology will appear to signify our sun rising in the East. One of the chapters of the Egyptian Book of the Dead, for example, is "The Chapter of Coming Forth by Day." The sun gods of both Egypt and Mesopotamia turn darkness into day, inaugurate the day, appear as lord of the day, and so on. The language is *so strong* it may seem to make any interpretation other than the solar interpretation appear preposterous, since in our sky only the Sun could ever answer to such images.

But there is a profound enigma here. It turns out that the "day" actually began with what we would call the "night" — at sunset, with the darkening of the sky, and the coming out, or growing bright of other celestial bodies. It is widely acknowledged that the Egyptian day once began at sunset. The same is true of the Babylonian and Western Semitic days. We know the Athenians originally computed the space of a day from sunset to sunset, and the habit appears to have prevailed among northern European peoples as well.

Who, then, is the great god — the god of terrifying radiance — whose coming out or coming forth inaugurates the day?

This god of the archaic day, beginning at sunset, is in fact called Shamash, Ra, Helios, and Sol — the very god explicitly identified with the planet Saturn.
- SATURN: THE ANCIENT SUN GOD By David Talbott

From The Saturn Polar Configuration: Electric Universe theory:

According to the Saturn Polar Configuration theory, not more than 6,000 years ago our ancestors lived in a very different world, with a heavens in a different configuration than today. The planets were not far away from the Earth, but overhead, in conjunction above the North Pole. These planets were Saturn, Venus and Mars. Saturn was the primary orb, and was originally not a planet, but a sub-brown dwarf star.Saturn Polar Configuration
saturn system earth mars
The theory posits that the neighboring planets only recently settled into their current orbits, the Earth formerly being involved in a unique planetary configuration of sorts together with Saturn, Venus, and Mars. As the terrestrial skywatcher looked upwards, he saw a spectacular and awe-inspiring apparition dominating the celestial landscape. At the heart of heaven the massive gas giant Saturn appeared fixed atop the North polar axis, with Venus and Mars set within its center like two concentric orbs (see figure one, where Venus is the green orb and Mars the innermost red orb). The theory holds that the origin of ancient myth and religion—indeed the origin of the primary institutions of civilization itself—is inextricably linked to the appearance and evolutionary history of this unique congregation of planets.The Saturn Myth

What the ancients were seeing when they depicted the Sun as three concentric discs was a different alignment of planets from what we see in the sky today. They suggest that at one time Earth was in a polar alignment – an alignment Talbott, Cardona, and Cochrane theorize as having been with Saturn, Venus and Mars; – the large outer disc in the pictographs being Saturn, the next inner disc representing Venus (often with rays emanating from it) and the center dark or red disc being Mars.
The view of a crescent with a star-like body at its center is impossible if our moon were the crescent. However, it would indeed be the scene viewed from Earth in its polar alignment if the crescent were Saturn, somewhat illuminated by the Sun, and the star-like object, Mars, being superimposed upon Venus.OUR UNIVERSE UNLOCKING ITS MYSTERIES
Briefly summarized, the theory posits that the neighboring planets only recently settled into their current orbits, the Earth formerly being involved in a unique planetary configuration of sorts together with Saturn, Venus, and Mars.

As the terrestrial skywatcher looked upwards, he saw a spectacular and awe-inspiring apparition dominating the celestial landscape. At the heart of heaven the massive gas giant Saturn appeared fixed atop the North polar axis, with Venus and Mars set within its center like two concentric orbs (see figure one, where Venus is the green orb and Mars the innermost red orb).

As seen from Earth, several planets appeared together as towering forms in the northern sky. In its stable phase, the planets moved in "collinear" equilibrium - they stayed in a line as the system moved through space. For observers on earth, the result was a unified configuration in the heavens, visually dominated by a large glowing planet – one we theorize to have been Saturn (then seen without its present ring system). This highly unusual planetary assembly was centered on the north celestial pole. It was regarded around the world as the cosmic center, the theater of the gods. http://electric-cosmos.org/ouruniverse.htm

I presented my findings to Troy McLachlan and others with the quote from 'Historical Account of the Origin and Progress of Astronomy' from 1923 about the Chaldeans attributing a Hexagon to Saturn - here is McLachlan's reply:
"I do think the hexagonal shape at Saturn's north pole is an indication for that shape's association with the planet Saturn, but mainly because (according to Electric Universe principles) the same shape would have been seen by Earth's inhabitants at Saturn's south pole in the period I describe as the Golden Age. The electrical connection between Earth and Saturn was far more pronounced at that time and would have produced a much more defined hexagonal shape during that period.

This is because Birkeland currents are actually a combination of between six and eight twirling currents that always spin about each other according to the right thumb rule of electrical current flow - like a more complicated double helix. These twirling-twisting currents form the much larger Birkeland currents that flow through planets and stars and produce a hurricane-like electrical vortex at their points of contact that is often characterised by hexagonal-shaped centres.

We see the exact same phenomenon in Earth's hurricanes and twisters where hexagonal eyes are often observed at the centre of major tropical storm systems (which are themselves, according to EU theory, electrical phenomena).

The same is also true for the formation of craters on planetary bodies where so-called impact craters display this same tendency for hexagonal shapes. This is because most craters are, in fact, the results of intense arc-mode plasma/lightning strikes where the same high-intensity combination of twisting-twirling electrical currents are at work.

Here's a quote from a useful article on the Thunderbolts.info website that touches on this topic:
"One of the most bizarre configurations discovered on Saturn is the hexagon that dominates its north pole. The formation was originally seen by cameras onboard the twin Voyager spacecraft that flew by Saturn in November 1980 and then again in August 1981. NASA researchers continue to refer to the structure as “unexplained”, since the convective interpretations of Saturnian weather do not include mechanisms by which clouds can organize themselves into polygonal shapes.
For many years researchers studying the issue have known that beams of electricity flowing through plasma produce a central column surrounded by concentric cylinders. The cylindrical current filaments exhibit long-range attraction and short-range repulsion braiding that result in evenly spaced vortices surrounding the column. As the filaments rotate around one another, a preferred hexagonal cross-section forms within the innermost column. Hexagonal craters can be seen etched into the surfaces of planets and moons. Weather patterns, such as hurricanes on Earth, also exhibit hexagonal “eyes” that defy conventional explanation.
The hexagon at Saturn’s north pole is another example of electrical activity in the solar system on a tremendous scale. Electricity moves along Birkeland current filaments that electrically connect the Sun with its family of planetary bodies. The energy flows most strongly into the giant gas planets because their charge differential with the Sun is greater than that of their smaller, rocky cousins. See here for the full article: http://www.thunderbolts.info/tpod/2008/arch08/080201vertex.htm
I think the underlying truth here is that the ancients did indeed know that a hexagonal shape was closely associated with Saturn and that can only have been the case had Earth and Saturn been in closer proximity to each other at some time in the past.
No, I have not seen a direct correlation in ancient texts between a geometric hexagon shape and the planet Saturn. However, the number six is most definitely used as a Saturnian attribute (it's current position being the sixth planet in the solar system's current configuration), and a hexagon is the accepted geometric expression of the number six, along with the six-pointed star. The number six is also attributed to the male of the human species in many ancient texts and traditions, i.e. man made on the sixth day; the male torso having six appendages - two arms, two legs, one penis, and one head, etc.

Geometry and Music were considered the highest pursuits of the ancient priesthoods since both disciplines incorporate a pleasing combination of both mathematical and aesthetic qualities, so it is likely that Saturn was associated with the hexagon from time to time, though this cannot be proven conclusively using ancient texts (at least none that I know of). The symbols used for the planets, though ancient in origin, owe more to being language representations than geometric appreciations, and this is why a hexagon is not used officially to symbolise Saturn."- Troy McLachlan

Symbols of An Alien Sky - The Electric Universe

In other words: Saturn's Hexagon could perhaps be viewed once directly from Earth (lack of sources and farfetched but not imposible), but more importantly; the elites worship Saturn as the ancient 'Sun' and not the current Sun! This would explain a lot about the characteristics of the Saturn Cult. See the Saturn Death Cult (NB! extremely interesting article series by Troy McLachlan)

 

After its flare-up and ejection of Venus, Saturn would alternate between quieter times in which Venus could be seen behind Mars and more electrically active periods in which Venus flared in a distinctive eight-pointed star burst. - previous link

It is interesting to note that Dr. Peratt's plasma experiments were able to replicate many symbols that can be found in ancient mythology too, such as Sumerian god, Ninurta's "Divine Weapon":

Ninurtas Divine Weapon and Plasma Discharge Compared

 

So, could it be that Palaeolithic man was merely replicating what he saw in the heavens above him? This would account for why the same symbols and images are found all over the world (aprt from the fact that there actually was a global civilization once).

 

 

Sumerian/Babylonian star and crescent
Throughout the ancient world the star between the horns of a crescent was an important religious symbol. Yet it is physically impossible if the crescent represented the Moon. What is more, the apparition was universally reported to have occupied the top of a tapering column of light in the motionless center of the northern sky – the north celestial pole – where the Moon never goes. It was often pictured as a figure with arms stretching upwards. The north celestial “pole” was commemorated by all ancient cultures as the home of the prehistoric sun and the planetary gods. A true history of the Earth must explain these astronomical enigmas. And a true history of the Earth is necessary before we can speculate meaningfully about planet origins.

From Ouspensky description of The Tarot card # 15 - corresponding in all occult western systems with Saturn (note also how the # 15 is 6 (1+5):

"CARD XV. THE DEVIL
A pentagram, pointing downwards, shone in phosphoric light between the horns on his forehead. Two large, grey, bat-like wings were spread behind him. He held up one arm, spreading out his bare, fat hand. In the palm I saw the sign of black magic. A burning torch held down-end in his other hand emitted black, stifling smoke. He sat on a large, black cube, gripping it with the claws of his beast-like, shaggy legs.

Loki arrives on Earth standing upon a black hexagon. The hexagon is a subliminal 2D representation of a 3D cube - The Avengers (2012) - source

Taking it’s place as one of the highest grossing films of all time, the mythmakers of modernity at Marvel gave the world a fairly immense dose of esoterica combined with deep state black operations in the 2012 blockbuster ... Set in the same Marvel universe as Iron Man, Captain America, Thor and Guardians of the Galaxy, The Avengers’ plot centered around a common theme I’ve analyzed often in terms of geo-politics: that of energy and resources. Readers will notice similar patterns in science fiction of the last decade, from Transformers to Interstellar, revolving around cubes, tesseracts and energy sources. In my analysis, this is not accidental, but as with all of Hollywood’s major releases, the establishment is conveying and encoding real world politics and black budget agendas in a profound way, and The Avengers is no exception to that rule. The opening sequence of the film features a tesseract, or hypercube, which is the geometrical structure of the dimension above our own, four-dimensional space. Amongst physicists and mathematicians, the hypercube is not merely a fantasy, but rather a known reality that extends beyond our own field of perception. I have delved into this in the past, with articles on crystallography and Pythagoreanism, as well as in relation to the Quadrivium method of classical learning that utilized the platonic solids and as the fundamental architecture of reality.

Note the hexagonal form the cube takes in 2D. The cube in the film is explicitly a hypercube, or tesseract.
In relation to classical metaphysics from ancient Greece and Egypt, the association of the fifth element after fire, water, earth and air, is aether, or quintessence. It is not accidental that following the opening hypercube sequence, we see Nick Fury engaged in secret work under NASA at a “dark energy” project in an underground base. Seemingly far-fetched, there are actual deep state black programs that revolve around plasma weaponry, particularly with H.A.A.R.P., which the Navy has boasted about here. In classical Greek thought, not only are there five elements, but matter also passes in and out of four states: solid, liquid, gas and plasma.
Fans of Tesla will recognize the similarity between the exotic weaponry Loki steals from Fury in the film, and the aether-based plasma physics Tesla utilized to work towards the potential for unlimited free energy, known as zero point energy, borrowed from the environment itself, as well as in quantum physics, according to Paul Dirac, energy from the future.

Saturn and Satan
Saturn has also been associated with Satan and this, for numerous reasons. First, many authors argue that the word Satan is derived from the word Saturn. Second, Saturn is associated with the color black as well as Satan.. Saturn is consequently the celestial body that is the less exposed to the sun’s divine light and thus associated with the coldness of the principle of Evil. Finally, the “great god Pan”, the horned deity, represented Saturn in ancient paganism.

“Pan was a composite creature, the upper part–with the exception of his horns–being human, and the lower part in the form of a goat. (…)The pipes of Pan signify the natural harmony of the spheres, and the god himself is a symbol of Saturn because this planet is enthroned in Capricorn, whose emblem is a goat”
- Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

So Pan was depicted with horns due to the fact it represented Saturn, the ruler of the house of Capricorn which symbol is a goat. Pan was the controlling spirit of the lower worlds. He was portrayed roaming through the forests, penis erect, drunk and lascivious, frolicking with nymphs and piping his way through the wild. We might say he ruled the lower nature of man, its animal side, not unlike Satan. Despite acknowledging its association with Evil, secret societies find the veneration of Saturn necessary to obtain illumination. It is the necessary counterpart of the principle of Good. Masonic authors clearly associate Saturn with Satan:

“Saturn is the opposite to Jupiter; his symbol is the cross above the sign of Luna. He is the Satan, the Tempter, or rather the Tester. His function is to chastise and tame the unruly passions in the primitive man.” - J.S. Ward,

Probably the most extreme example of a secret society worshiping Saturn’s Evil principle is the “Fraternitas Saturni”. This occult organization is based in Germany and openly embodies the hidden side of Saturn worship.

“The Fraternitas Saturni (FS), the Brotherhood of Saturn, has become known to English readers through fragmentary descriptions which emphasize the sensational, sex-magical aspects of this lodge’s work or else its darker, more Satanic, side.This is understandable in light of the fact that the FS is (or was) the most unabashedly Luciferian organization in the modern Western occult revival, and its practice of sexual occultism perhaps the most elaborately detailed of any such lodge. The FS represents a unique blend of astrological cosmology, neo-Gnostic daemonology, sexual occultism, and Freemasonic organizational principles. This grand synthesis was originally the vision of one man, the long-time Grand Master of the FS, Gregor A. Gregorius.”

A short factoid:
Saturnus is a Roman god (they identified it with the Greek god Cronus)
El means “deity/god” in some Semitic languages, as in a deity or, with emphasis, as “the Supreme Deity” (which was different for the different Semitic people) and became the “One (and Only) God” (see Elohim, Allah…) after the adoption of monotheism so basically “El” is interchangeable with “God”.
Saturn as a planet takes its name from the god Saturnus since the Romans considered Saturnus the equivalent of the Greek god Cronus and the Greeks had made the outermost planet sacred to Cronus, so the Romans followed suit. (In modern Greek, the planet retains its ancient name Cronus—Κρόνος: Kronos.) Since Saturn has rings, some have dubbed the god Saturn the “Lord of the Rings” though the rings were only discovered by Galileo with a telescope in 1610...but actually they could have been discovered in ancient times.
Black cubes : there are black cubes in many cultures : the Jewish Tefillin (called ṭoṭafot in the Bible), the Muslim Kaaba and some various work of art around the world. Some Jewish will wear those tefillin on their forehead as instructed in some verses from Exodus to worship the Lord
Judges robes (in the U.S) : Colonial judges in England wore robes, and the tradition took off on American soil as well.

To sum it all up, there is real connection between the god Saturn and any of the items on the list. NB! The Hexagon, Kabbalah, the planet Saturn, Freemasonry, etc. are not 'evil' but it has been hijacked, hacked, and are misused big time for evil purposes since ancient times.

Another side story: More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador in an old tunnel system. One artifact in particular shows the same pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the top of it (right). Under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue while on the bottom of this artifact (see picture below), you can see a star map of Orion’s Belt along with writing that is older than any known writing on this planet. According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings.

 

We are seeing a continuing theme involving Orion’s Belt:

The pyramids on the Giza Plateau also reflect the exact same alignment as the “3 Kings” of Orion’s Belt. Professor Kurt Schildmann, former President of the German Linguistic Association, called this writing “pre-Sanskit” (older than 6,000 years old) and was able to translate the writing as follows:
“The son of the creator comes.” [just like the Book of Enoch, Genesis, Anunaki story, etc]

Comment: If the pyramid (video) is 12.000 or 10.000 years old fx. - and pyramids are way more ancient than that - why the hell is such pyramid found in ancient Equadorian tunnels - the identical freemasonry design with 13 steps and eye on top - to be found on the American dollar bill 12.000 years later!? So the roots of freemasonry are way older than just 6000 or 8000 years. I suspect Atlantean artefacts and that the roots of freemasonry are to be found in Atlantis before Egypt.

The master mason, Manly P. Hall:
'While the elaborate ceremonial magic of antiquity was not necessarily evil, there arose from its perversion several false schools of sorcery, or black magic.

Egypt, a great center of learning and the birthplace of many arts and sciences, furnished an ideal environment for transcendental experimentation. Here the black magicians of Atlantis continued to exercise their superhuman powers until they had completely undermined and corrupted the morals of the primitive Mysteries. By establishing a sacerdotal caste they usurped the position formerly occupied by the initiates, and seized the reins of spiritual government. Thus black magic dictated the state religion and paralyzed the intellectual and spiritual activities of the individual by demanding his complete and unhesitating acquiescence in the dogma formulated by the priestcraft. The Pharaoh became a puppet in the hands of the Scarlet Council--a committee of arch-sorcerers elevated to power by the priesthood.

Found this right now (perhaps this 4th is a scam):
"We have found the Fourth Black Pyramid. The Black Pyramid? Yes, like the three that already existed. Besides the one that we just came across the most previous pyramid was found in the jungles of Ecuador. They are each inscribed with a secret code that has been written in Sanskrit. The code is translated to mean, "the Son of the Creator Comes From Here." It is one of the most mysterious finds in the entire world and is relatively new in its finding, considering the fact that it was only found in the 1980s. The other two are kept in hiding. One is owned by the Rothschild's, who you know own the banking system of America. The other one is in a Belgian witch Museum, which I'm pretty sure is off limits to any mortal who dares to enter." - source

On a very cryptic note from the Typhonian order of the OTO we get this info about Sirius and Orion from various occult sources.

More cryptic copy/paste from the internet - alleged channeling stuff about Orion pertaining to an important facet of Laura Knight-Jadczyk's esotericism:

'This article explains a lot about my life. I can't say for sure if I'm a "wanderer" or not, but my profile sure fits this description. I've always felt out of place compared with most people. This feeling is increasing as I'm becoming more aware of the game that is being played here.

This article also sheds light on why the "Law of Attraction" or positive affirmations and visualizations fail to manifest positive results for me. I'm so tired of people saying things like "You're doing something wrong" or "You're not believing hard enough." Those explanations have never felt right to me. On the contrary, several times in my life it has been the very times that I am the most spiritual and altruistic -- when my focus and daily practice is one of doing good to others and helping myself and others to "awaken" that I attract the most bizarre negative shit into my life. The intentional sabatoge of wanderers by the "feeders" in other dimensions certainly would explain that phenomenon.

The other common phrase that doesn't ring true for me is "There are no victims." Certainly, you control your reaction to your environment, but there are countless examples of the STS (service to self) beings vicitimizing the STO (service to others) folk. I don't think there's any denying that there are manipulators and controllers at work in this world. It stands to reason that those unfortunate souls affected by them are the victims. There are so many examples of this dynamic I wonder how anyone can deny it. You need only look at children who are sexually abused or entire nations who are starving and homeless due to the selfish actions of the STS types.

It's a long article, so I'm not going to paste it. Below is an excerpt. I hope you get as much out of this article as I did. ~ Noa
“Furthermore, the Wanderer is less inclined to the deviousness of third density and therefore does not recognize as easily as a more negative individual would, the negative nature of thoughts or beings… [If the Wanderer is successfully co-opted by the Orion STS it would be] caught into the planetary vibration and, when harvested, possibly repeat again the master cycle of third density as a planetary entity.”
...those with missions, Wanderers, are “high priority targets” of the Orion STS faction.

Venetians - Powers behind The Rothschilds?
The real power behind Rothschild? Interesting thesis I found (even if flawed there are interesting points):

Our information speaks for itself and goes far beyond the Labor Masonic hofjuden pawns of the Zionist Anglo-American Empire. All they know is damn Rothschilds who were peons whilst the mighty Pallavicini were the mighty bankers of Britain. You won't see a Pallavicini sitting in a BBC News studio like peon Evelyn De Rothschild.

What we have is minor league minds who have been given an illusion to focus on that which diverts their attention away from the real power of this World. A power so great that it's controlled the World for thousands of years and long before any Sabbatean Frankist hofjudens. A power based in Rome which created the bloody hofjudens false messiahs of Jacob Frank and Sabbatai Levi.

These Judiac bashers will not look at evidence provided as it causes confusion to what's been implanted in their heads. Everyone's heard the Judiac bashing stories for years -- it's common place. What isn't common place is the power within Rome which was hushed all up by the Jesuit Order and their control over the education system within the 20th Century. I have no time for these low-level non-thinking Temporal coadjutors which the Curia Generalizia laugh at daily. Much of the Judiac bashers information is incorrect as proven by the likes of Barry Chamish who's an expert on the Sabbatean Frankists and has lived in Israel. . He also highlights the Vatican as we do, which should tell you something.

Once again many of the famous hofjudens are within the Knights of Malta. Let's not forget Gary Krupp and his controls for the Vatican over the hofjudens. As always these Judiac bashers cannot answer why Jesuit trained, Sabbatean Frankist -- Shimon Peres -- handed over Jerusalem to the Vatican in 1993 with the Declaration of Principles on Interim Self-Government Arrangements. They will never answer this because then they would be following our information about the Vatican control.

Real Torah-believing Judiacs know what's about to happen to themselves around the World

[”By tying "Jews" into the Zionist equation you serve as a recruiter for the Talmud, Midrash and Kabbalah, all of which teach that there is no mercy or love for Jews among the goyim; that it is "impossible for the goyim not to hate the Jews," because "Halacha hu beyadua sheEsav soneh leYaakov." The Hitlers and the Henry Fords played into the hands of the rabbis by confirming this racial maxim of theirs. Hitler and Ford were, in this way, unconscious allies and agents of the rabbis!...We are fighting not a race of people but a spiritual and ideological toxin, which infects Judaics and gentiles with equal virulence.”

Most jews are just as ignorant zombies as everyone else, and unwitting tools, majority of secular jews, not only Torah-jews, but all in all just pawns to be used and discarded by the occult babylonian/sabbatean/jesuit overlords just like the ignorant masses of 'goyims' in a Albert Pike-like scenario. Because many anti-Rothschild factions in the truth movements equate the rotten psychopathic elite with all jews/khazars (most of which are zombified ignorant tools and pawns, jut like most 'Goyims') , such 'anti-semites' will be used to whip up collectivized 'anti-semitic' punishment and divide & conquer, in favor of exactly what the Rothschild/Sabbateans/Zionists want - same old formula, just like WWII. The compartmentalized 'Albert Pike'sque' design of the 'Illuminazis/ 'ZioNazis'. Oh the irony. See also: The Sabbateans Plan To Destroy Israel] .

The same as what happened in World War II. They'll be destroyed in Israel also as the land gets destroyed in the coming World War III. Only Jerusalem will be spared but not the Judiac. Of course the important Sabbatean hofjudens will be moved out prior and during the coming destruction of Israel. So Rome needs to create mass hatred of Judiacs again as they did in Germany with the Knights of Malta-controlled Nazi party but this time Worldwide. Hatred must be focused regularly towards Israel so the common western sheople will accept its destruction with open arms. Are we not seeing this happening right this minute? All scripted of course by the Curia Generalizia and their Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem.

The Curia Generalizia have a plan to utilise the Arab World in Israel's destruction. The lands to be destroyed by nuclear weaponry in the form of depleted uranium and of course the typical nuclear detonations shortly between China and the United States Corporation. Once the lands are taken over, then the neutron activators will come into play to clean up the environment of the radiation. The Vatican will be moved over to Jerusalem as the Roman Empire destroys the Vatican 'front' of Rome, disguising themselves as "removed and non-players anymore". All as the new Babylonian pagan World religion takes place of worshiping nature. Run of course by the same Roman Empire with new dress and titles just as with the changing of Caesar to Pope, Senate to College of Cardinals and Praetoriani Guard to Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, now taken over by the Society of Jesus. To attack our information with talk of us being cuckoo is nothing more than what I'd expect from Temporal Coadjutors (knowing and unknowing) just as with Fox News against people speaking out about 9/11. Why is it that when hofjuden, Larry Silverstein is mentioned in this plotting on 9/11 they never mention his membership as a Knight of Malta? Same goes for all these Hofjudens like Henry Kissinger and Co...

Comment on Trump and nukes:

Written by the famous survivalist and conspiracy theorist dissident Brandon Smith , April 13, 2017:

@Milin

Trump will continue with his anti-globalist rhetoric and continue to be "protectionist" economically, even if his actions say otherwise. What you need to remember is that for most people rhetoric sticks in their minds more than action. If he says he's protectionist and the media says he's protectionist, then sadly millions of Americans will ALSO say he is protectionist. You also forget that at least a third of the country is liberal, and they'll believe anything that supports their inherent bias and hatred of Trump. I studied human psychology for many years before I studied economics, trust me on this one.

Finally, the best possible weapon for population reduction today is NOT nuclear war, but economic collapse. Today, if you starve people they will die en masse. During the Great Depression if you starved people some died but most were self sufficient, so, they also sent them to war.

I fully expect regional wars to continue. I also expect that we will see a limited nuclear event within my lifetime (meaning, a terrorist attack or something similar). Nuclear war, however, makes no sense whatsoever. Why would the elites spend decades and billions in capital to build an international biometric control grid only to vaporize it in a hail of nukes? They are pyschopathic, but not stupid.

Hmm, well, if they have Breakaway Civilization tech like so-called 'neutron activators', perhaps nukes will be used on a grander scale?

 

 

Ultra Powerful Aldobrandini Family - The REAL Saturnalian Illuminati?

THE REAL 13 ZOROASTRIAN BLOODLINES OF THE ILLUMINATI ***

Ptolemaic Papal bloodlines:

Orsini
Breakspear
Aldobrandini

[Interjection: David Rothschild married a beautiful girl from the Aldobrandini family in 1974.

 

" [The family name lives on, however, via a branch of the Borghese family, descended from the marriage of Olimpia Aldobrandini with Prince Paolo Borghese in the 17th century. This line is descended from Don Camillo Borghese, Prince Aldobrandini (1816-1902), a leading member of the soi-disant Black Nobility, who in turn was the younger brother of the then Prince Borghese and head of that family. Princess Olimpia Anna Aldobrandini, also a non-lineal descendent of Napoleon on her mother's side, married into the Rothschild family. - wikipedia

 

Long interjection:

“It’s been said that the movie’s [Eyes Wide Shut] sex magic ritual is a reenactment of orgy parties Kubrick attended at the Villa of the Aldobrandini family" - source (while others claim that Venetian masks and the scenes in Eyes Wide Shut might be a reenactment of parties in a Rothschild mansion.).

 

Eyes Wide Shut: Censored Vs. Uncensored (GALLERY)

 

Eyes Wide Shut was Stanley Kubrick's last film, as he died four days after showing his final cut to Warner Brothers. Warner Bros., claiming that they needed to secure an R-rating and that the orgy scenes were too explicit, edits some scenes of the film directly against Kubrick's wishes (his contract stated that he and he alone had final cut). The extent or details surrounding these edits have never been confirmed but Warner Bros. claims they only added some CGI to hide some of the more explicit sex acts (see Eyes Wide Shut: Censored Vs. Uncensored (GALLERY) ). The version in South America, Europe and Australia featured the orgy scene intact (theatrical and DVD release). Probably 15-20 minutes or more were cut and there is no chance in hell all those were orgy sex. - source Wikipedia, Reddit, etc.

Garrett Brown, inventor of the Steadicam, has expressed that he considers Eyes Wide Shut to be an unfinished film:
"I think Eyes Wide Shut was snatched up by the studio when Stanley died and they just grabbed the highest number Avid edit and ran off as if that was the movie. But it was three months before the movie was due to be released. I don't think there's a chance that was the movie he had in mind, or the music track and a lot of other things. It's a great shame because you know it's out there"
'The only one outside of Warner and the Kubrick Estate who can confirm these things is Nick Galt, Kubrick's editor. But Nick (like in the film itself) does not talk and seems to have been clamped down by Warner. When "editors.net" was asked why they had never interviewed him for their Eyes Wide Shut article, they simply said "WB had blocked it". Editors.net had to interview William Butler, the editor of Clockwork Orange, instead. ' - source

"I really love Eyes Wide Shut. I just wonder if Stanley Kubrick really did finish it the way he wanted to before he died."
-David Lynch

Even if Warner Bros hated Kubrick's finished version, and even if they felt that Eyes Wide Shut merited significant trimming prior to release, it is artistically and commercially unthinkable that they wouldn't have retained a copy of Kubrick's cut for cinema posterity (and a subsequent director's cut release for film buffs).
This suggests that Warner Bros butchered the film to hide specific details which amounted to hidden knowledge on issues like mind control, secret societies, girls born into the elite being groomed to be sex slaves (my reading is that Mrs Hartford used to be one, the daughter is taken away to become one) and we will never know what Kubrick really wanted to tell us. I want to know, and it will always bug me. Various sources say that Vivian Kubrick (Stanley Kubrick's daughter) claimed that he was killed because of the film 4 days after showing the final cut. 'Stanley Kubrick’s wife has gone on record at least once claiming she doesn’t believe Kubrick died from a heart attack' - source

 

"Perhaps most dangerous of all, d’Arc next delved into the eccentric life and death of filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, who many have speculated belonged to some sort of Illuminati secret society. “An example of an occult film is Kubrick’s 1999 release Eyes Wide Shut starring Nicole Kidman and her Scientologist husband at the time, Tom Cruise. It’s been said that the movie’s sex magic ritual is a reenactment of orgy parties Kubrick attended at the Villa of the Aldobrandini family, one of the 13 ruling bloodlines of the Black Nobility of Rome, known as the Illuminati. These families sit way above even the Vatican, Knights Templar, Freemasonry, Opus Dei, and all of the world’s richest families. After Kubrick completed this film, he had a sudden heart attack in his sleep.”

As one of the most tantalizing deaths in Hollywood history, d’Arc spoke about the possibility of foul play. “Was this a natural heart attack or was it induced? It’s not outlandish to suppose that Kubrick’s death was instigated by someone as punishment for exposing secret rituals of the world’s ruling families. In the 1950s the CIA studied ways to mimic death by natural causes such as heart attack and cancer. It was found that the use of potassium chloride or calcium gluconate to cause a heart attack would not raise suspicion since these chemicals are naturally present in the human body. Another way to induce heart attacks is via radio-frequency weapons.”

Another shocker: the highly significant Uniform Commercial Code ( UCC) is controlled and regulated by UNIDROIT. UNIDROIT also controls and governs global insurance, franchising, motor vehicles, Principles of International Commercial Contract, etc.
The International Institute for the Unification of Private Law (UNIDROIT) is an independent intergovernmental Organisation with its seat in the Villa Aldobrandini in Rome. Its purpose is to study needs and methods for modernising, harmonising and co-ordinating private and in particular commercial law as between States and groups of States and to formulate uniform law instruments, principles and rules to achieve those objectives.

All controlled through the Jesuit Order and their Knights of Malta & Teutonic Knights all based in missile protected Borgo Santo Spirito in Rome.

Pepe Orsini - Italy
Henry Breakspear - Macau, China

[Interjection: Sheldon Gary Adelson.. is an American business magnate. He is the chairman and chief executive officer of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, which owns the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore and is the parent company of Venetian Macao Limited https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sheldon_Adelson]

This is the true power finally.

This is the Guelph and the Ghibelline power over mankind.

The Cecil family were controlled by the powerful Jesuit family known as the Pallavicini.

Maria Camilla Pallavicini is far more powerful than Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen and Prince Philip are totally subordinate to the Papal Bloodline the Breakspear Family and their Jesuit UKHQ at 114 Mount Street.

Please go and study who funded Elizabeth I that astronomical amount of money to fight the Spanish, yes Pallavicini.

The most powerful man right now in the conspiracy over this World is a Roman by the name of PEPE ORSINI of the powerful Roman Papal Bloodline the Orsini also known as Orso and the ancient Maximus family.

There is no one more powerful than this figure who is really the Grey Pope.

The Papal Bloodlines are the secret shadow hieracy of the Jesuit Order even behind the Black Pope touted at the #1.

These powerful bloodlines are the Breakspear, Somaglia, Orsini, Farnese & Aldobrandini.

You'll notice David Rothschild marrying into the Aldobrandini with the pretty, Princess Olimpia Aldobrandini.

Another real head of this is Henry Breakspear who resides now in Macau in China.

Many of the Papal Bloodline heads now live in Asia and India. What does that tell you?

The current Black Pope, Adolfo Nicholas was bought forward for the position due to the Jesuits bringing about of Asia as the next power player of the agenda.

Both this Black Pope and the white Pope aren't of Papal Bloodline, they are both commoners.

I've named the most powerful families on the planet. I've named the Grey Pope the one inbetween the white and black but unseen

Saturnalian Brotherhood - The Real 13 Zoroastrian Bloodlines of the Illuminati

House of Borja
House of Breakspeare
House of Somaglia
House of Orsini
House of Conti
House of Chigi
House of Colonna
House of Farnese
House of Medici
House of Gaetani
House of Pamphili
House of Este
House of Aldobrandini

These Egyptian Ptolemaic Dynasty Rulers are in Full Control of the Company of Jesus, High Grey Council of Ten, and the Black Pope

This is some good info on the Black Pope:

The 'Black Pope', Superior Jesuit General (The President of the World), speaks at Loyola 'Military Fortress' University in his un-ratified 14th Amendment 'Little Rome' D.C United States Corporation.

A corporation under International Maritime Admiralty Law (Uniform Commerical Code) based upon Vatican Canon Law and perfected by the Roman Empire.

He lies about his power, he's over the Pope as of 1814.

He only serves and works with the shadow Jesuits being the Papal Bloodline Orsini's, Breakspear's, Aldobrandini's, Farnese's, Somalgia's.

Adolfo is not of Papal Bloodline, some Black Pope's have been.

The next in power beneath the Jesuits is the Bourbon, King Juan Carlos of Spain. The Roman Monarch of the World, The King of Jerusalem and SMOM Military Navigator.

This is the true World's power system right now.

Adolfo serves as a military General protecting the Zoroathrianism and Mithraism mystery schools.

The Jesuits were created by the Papal Bloodline Farnese during the reign of Farnese Pope Paul III.

Loyola was commissioned by Alessandro Cardinal Farnese.

The Borgia crime family created the Jesuits!!

After the terrible reign of Pope Alexander VI, the Romans were disgusted with the Spanish and vowed that there would never be another Spanish Pope. This animosity toward the Spanish was further aggravated by the Sack of Rome in 1527 in order to prevent the divorce of Henry VIII from Catherine of Aragon.

The Borgia answer to this Spanish animosity was the creation of the order of Jesuits—a quasi religious/military strike force whose members were totally dedicated to their Spanish leader who bore the military title of general.

Like the White Pope, the general is elected for life and the Jesuit dynasty is a parallel or pseudo Papacy....Of course, the general is content to run the show from behind the scenes so as not to arouse the age-old Italian hatred for the Spanish.

The Jesuit general is referred to as the '"Black" Pope at the Vatican because he always dresses in black.

The Jesuits were officially founding in 1540 by Pope Paul III. Ignatius LIEola became their first general.

Don Francis Borgia was the great-grandson of Pope Alexander VI, and co-founder of the Jesuits. On his mother's side he was descended from King Ferdinand of Aragon.

The Spanish control the Vatican through the Jesuits.

For the past 500 years, the Spanish Inquisition has controlled the Vatican by means of the Jesuits. All the Jesuits answer to their general in Rome, and he in turn is content to run the show from behind the scenes, without any publicity or public acclaim so as not to arouse the age-old Italian hostility to the Spanish...

Aldobrandini = Al Debaran They have an Egyptian lineage from Ptolemy Egypt. There name is Arabic, which means they are also Moorish converts to Catholicism, but came from Egypt as well they married into the Venetian Este Family. Theres a lodge called Al-dabaran. ?

Short dissonant crypto-Exopolitics-occult segue: Not that it's connected necessarily but we find Aldebaran AND Sumer of central importance for the Vril Society:
In December 1919 a small circle of persons from Thule, Vril and the DHvSS [Die Herren vom Schwarzen Stein (German: Lords of the Black Stone)] met in a specially rented forester's lodge near Berchtesgaden (Germany). They were accompanied by the medium Maria Orsic and another medium only known as Sigrun. Maria had mediumistically received transmission in a secret Templar script - a language unknown to her - with the technical data for the construction of a flying machine. According to Vril documents these telepathic messages came from the solar system Aldebaran which is sixty-four light-years away in the constellation Taurus. Here is a short summary of messages the Vril medium had received over the years and which formed the basis for all further actions by the Vril-Gesellschaft, compiled by author Jan van Helsing, and this is very important information to be able to understand the rest - this is not science fiction, but truly what is going on in the Inner Core of Thule and Vril. I need to emphasize to the reader that even if you don't believe a word of this, it's irrelevant. They believe it and have built at least two very complicated secret societies around it - and these societies are quite powerful and influential: The solar system Aldebaran has a sun around which revolve two inhabited planets that form the empire SUMERAN.
- Source
"According to the legend of the German Vril society, a fateful meeting was held in 1919 at an old hunting lodge near Berchtesgaden, where Maria Orsic presented to a small group assembled from the Thule, Vril and Black Sun Societies, telepathic messages she claimed to have received from an extraterrestrial civilization existing in the distant Aldebaran solar system, sixty-eight light years away, in the Constellation of Taurus. One set of Maria's channeled transmissions was found to be in a secret German Templar script unknown to her. A second series of transmissions appeared to be written in an ancient eastern language, which Babylonian scholars associated with the Thule group, recognized as ancient Sumerian."....By Christmas of 1943, medium Maria Orsic of the Vril Gesellschaft, claimed that subsequent transmissions from Aldebaran revealed there were two habitable planets orbiting that star and that the ancient Mesopotamian civilization of Sumeria was linked to earlier colonies of Aldebaran explorers.
- The Aldebaran Mystery…
Approximately 5,000 years ago, the rising of Aldebaran marked the vernal equinox and was the beginning of the Babylonian New Year.

Hebrews called Aldebaran God's Eye and Aleph. Aldebaran is also known as Buddha's Star, the Star of Illumination, God's Eye, and the Eye of the Bull.

 

The Crux: Double-headed eagle, Venetians, and Babylon Mystery

The double-headed eagle is the symbol of the 32nd degree Sublime Prince of the Royal Secret and is probably the best known..........25° - Knight of the Brazen Serpent This degree attempts to explain the conceptualities of celestial purity and the eternal soul of man. The apprentice is driven to look within his faith, life and God and to get a clear look at his inner self. The apron worn is white, lined in black, and with gold stars on the white side (Pleiades, Hyades, Orion, Capella) and with silver stars on the black side (Perseus, Scorpio, Bootes). Also on it is a serpent, Ouroboros, surrounding a scarab, a triangle in a glory with the Tetragrammaton in its center, and the four initials of the stars Regulus, Aldebaran, Antares, and Fomalhaut. The jewel is a gold tau cross (crux ansata) with a serpent entwined around it, and the Hebrew words HLThI ("he has suffered or been wounded") and NChShThN ("the Brazen Serpent") on it. http://crscottishrite.org/explaination.html
Aldebarán passes the meridian first, indicating his right to his peculiar title of Leader. Nowhere in the heavens are there, near the same meridian, so many splendid Stars. And close behind them, but further South, follows Sirius, the Dog-Star, who showed the nine Elus the way to the murderer’s cave....ORION is visible to all the habitable world. The equinoctial line passes through the centre of it. When Aldebarán rose in the East, the Three Kings in Orion followed him; and as Taurus set, the Scorpion, by whose sting it was said Orion died, rose in the East."
- Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma – Knight of the Brazen Serpent MORALS AND DOGMA OF THE ANCIENT AND ACCEPTED SCOTTISH RITE OF FREEMASONRY 1871

Whether Albert Pike, Gabriel Jagond-Pager, or somebody else behind the curtain wrote the following, it seems to the blueprint for the powers that be

Albert Pike received a vision, which he described in a letter that he wrote to Mazzini, dated August 15, 1871. This letter graphically outlined plans for three world wars that were seen as necessary to bring about the One World Order, and we can marvel at how accurately it has predicted events that have already taken place.

Pike's Letter to Mazzini

It is a commonly believed fallacy that for a short time, the Pike letter to Mazzini was on display in the British Museum Library in London, and it was copied by William Guy Carr, former Intelligence Officer in the Royal Canadian Navy. The British Library has confirmed in writing to me that such a document has never been in their possession. Furthermore, in Carr's book, Satan, Prince of this World, Carr includes the following footnote:

"The Keeper of Manuscripts recently informed the author that this letter is NOT catalogued in the British Museum Library. It seems strange that a man of Cardinal Rodriguez's knowledge should have said that it WAS in 1925".

It appears that Carr learned about this letter from Cardinal Caro y Rodriguez of Santiago, Chile, who wrote The Mystery of Freemasonry Unveiled.

To date, no conclusive proof exists to show that this letter was ever written. Nevertheless, the letter is widely quoted and the topic of much discussion.

Following are apparently extracts of the letter, showing how Three World Wars have been planned for many generations

"The First World War must be brought about in order to permit the Illuminati to overthrow the power of the Czars in Russia and of making that country a fortress of atheistic Communism. The divergences caused by the "agentur" (agents) of the Illuminati between the British and Germanic Empires will be used to foment this war. At the end of the war, Communism will be built and used in order to destroy the other governments and in order to weaken the religions."

Students of history will recognize that the political alliances of England on one side and Germany on the other, forged between 1871 and 1898 by Otto von Bismarck, co-conspirator of Albert Pike, were instrumental in bringing about the First World War.

"The Second World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences between the Fascists and the political Zionists. This war must be brought about so that Nazism is destroyed and that the political Zionism be strong enough to institute a sovereign state of Israel in Palestine. During the Second World War, International Communism must become strong enough in order to balance Christendom, which would be then restrained and held in check until the time when we would need it for the final social cataclysm."

After this Second World War, Communism was made strong enough to begin taking over weaker governments. In 1945, at the Potsdam Conference between Truman, Churchill, and Stalin, a large portion of Europe was simply handed over to Russia, and on the other side of the world, the aftermath of the war with Japan helped to sweep the tide of Communism into China.

(Readers who argue that the terms Nazism and Zionism were not known in 1871 should remember that the Illuminati invented both these movements. In addition, Communism as an ideology, and as a coined phrase, originates in France during the Revolution. In 1785, Restif coined the phrase four years before revolution broke out. )

"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other.

Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil.

Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time.

Since the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, world events, and in particular in the Middle East, show a growing unrest and instability between Modern Zionism and the Arabic World. This is completely in line with the call for a Third World War to be fought between the two, and their allies on both sides. This Third World War is still to come, and recent events show us that it is not far off.”

'You can find alot of information by studying Venice from its creation by Phoenicians on to present day Vatican bloodlines. Says alot I know. Starting with the major banking families of Vienna from 10th century on, especially the 11th. All of the above mentioned are part of what is referred to as the Black Nobility. The "Black Nobility" are/were the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, Italy, who in the 12th century held the privileged trading rights (monopolies)'
the Mythos Mafia - The Papal Bloodlines of the Jesuits

'Just like the Venetians, who invented the banking system and insurance, belong to a group of people who originate from Caldea. Now look at some of the family crests and flags of the royal houses of Europe, AND the Rottenchilds and you’ll see the double headed eagle. The double headed eagle was also to be seen on a cylinder seal of the Babylonian god Ninurta. So there you have it, the elites are related to the Annunaki(?), a nicer bunch of war mongering Kings you’ll ever meet. [see Cosmic Abandonment by Mark Passio]. It is in this wise that the bird appears in an old Babylonian cylinder seal once belonging to a priest of Ningersu. Upon this seal a priest or priestess presents a naked candidate or novitiate before an altar before which sits the goddess Bau, the Ishtar of Lagash. Behind the goddess is an inscription supported upon the two heads of a bicephalous eagle, which, of course is none other than the symbol of Ningersu and his city, Lagash. This is the oldest known representation of the double-headed eagle.....The double-headed bird may represent Ningersu and Enlil, the union of the Sun god and the Storm god, or it may represent the union of Ningersu and Bau.As an emblem of Ningersu and of Enlil (the god to whom the Tower of Babel was erected) the eagle represents the union of the two greatest gods of Mesopotamia. Indeed, in the later years of Babylonia, either of these gods might be called by the name of other, and to worship one was to pay equal tribute the other.

'A "crowned" double-eagle is commonplace to see in all of the above settings, especially in Russian heraldry. However, to see a crowned double-eagle (issued by Russia) with the all-seeing eye within the delta or triangle is a true rarity. The example below is the only such example that I have ever seen. It is a Russian Medal, issued by Czar Nicholas I in the year 1849 for the "Pacification of Hungary and Transylvania." On the obverse is a radiant triangle with the eye of providence (Almighty God) above a crowned double-headed eagle, wings upward, shield of armor, with scepter and orb held in its claws. I think it is worth noting that the all-seeing eye of Almighty God is positioned above the man-made royal crown. The eagle's claws are holding the scepter and orb.

The double-headed eagle symbol dates back thousands of years. Turkish princes used it on their banners, and later the Knight Crusaders adopted it, even though it had been their enemy's insignia. For some peculiar reason, the emblem instilled confidence and pride. The double-headed eagle in the Russian coat of arms dates back even before the reign of Ivan III

Roman Empire: Double-headed eagle

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cloaked in red, the High Priest sits on a throne which features a very important symbol: A double-headed eagle topped by a crown.
Scene from 'Eyes Wide Shut' - Kubrick gave us clues: ' the High Priest sits on a throne which features a very important symbol: A double-headed eagle topped by a crown.' - Vigilant Citizen
The earliest representation of The Double-Headed Eagle is found in the ancient Sumerian city of Lagash. It is the Sumerian-Babylonian symbol for the god of Lagash, Ninurta, son of Enlil. The cult of Ninurta can be traced back to the oldest period of Sumerian history. There is a pre-occupation with Ninurta’s Royal Blood-Heir Symbolism. The Double-Headed Eagle of Lagash is used as an emblem by the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry. It has been introduced in France in the early 1760s. This is the figure Scottish Rite Freemasonry holds up as the emblem of its highest levels of honor and achievement and is often referred to as the “Eagle of Lagash". The two faced eagle was popularized in Europe by the Emperor Charlemagne, and the symbol was adopted formally into Freemasonry in the mid-eighteenth century, by the Council of Emperors of the East and West. The double-headed eagle is associated with the Byzantine Empire, the Holy Roman Empire, the Austrian Empire, the Russian Empire and their successor states.
In Byzantine heraldry, the heads represent the Emperor having authority over both secular and religious matters, Byzantine emperors were regarded as Christ's viceregent on Earth. It also signified the dominance of the Byzantine Emperors over both East and West. In the Holy Roman Empire's heraldry, it represented the church and the state. Scottish Rite Freemasons claim it is “the oldest Royal Crest in the World,” nearly two thousand years older than the earliest representations known to archaeologists. According to various Masonic publications, the double­headed eagle originated ia thousand years before the Exodus from Egypt, or perhaps even as far back as five thousand years ago, or circa 3000 B.C.—approximately 1300 years before the oldest known Hittite artifact.

2 MUST-see in-depth analysis of Eyes Wide Shut and here

'For us to understand the power of the Aldobrandini today we need only remember the recent marriage between the House of Rothschild and the Aldobrandini with the marriage between Olimpia Aldobrandini and David Rothschild.

The House of Rothschild would not marry into a family of lower rank than itself, a fact of itself shows we are looking at a mighty family in the Aldobrandini, but if we are to take note of history and the opinions of some researchers in the field, it must also be considered that the House of Rothschild is by far the inferior of the two Houses, from the occult perspective and in wealth.

To gain insight into the power and spiritual essence of the Aldobrandini we must look at some symbolism. The Name Aldobrandini derives from The Constellation Alde-Baeran , there we find The Morning Star which represents Lucifer The Light Bearer [usually it's Venus but is there another elite symbolism? Who knows?)

Below right is the villa at which the marriage between David Rothschild and Olimpia Aldobrandini held importance, but it is in the symbolism of the entire estate that serves to enlighten us further into the private life of families that present a Christian and indeed Jewish front protocol, or the public persona,’ yet when you examine the foundations and their actions we see the exact opposite to be the case in the private.

'The Rothschild family do have a lot of land and minerals and why wouldn’t they when they know the currency they print is an illusion for the imprisoned and slaved herd (Cestui Que Vie Act 1666). ....What we have is the World being mastered by the great minds of the Jesuits and what are known as The Ancients (Venetians). If you look you will find all the Nobility like King Juan Carlos and elite figures like Bill Clinton, Shimon Peres (exposed by Leah Rabin in her book ‘Rabin: Our Life, His Legacy‘) are trained by the Jesuit Order (military fortresses such as Georgetown University). When you look at the mindset imposed over the system and people such as the pseudo-science (Royal Society) and social engineering (Tavistock/Fabian Society) this all stems from Venice commanded from the Arsenale di Venezia using the likes of the Cini Foundation. You will notice I highlighted the connection of the Jesuit Boston College in the US with the Venice International University which is something on par with the likes of the Nobility controlled Round Square education of the Gordonstoun School in New Venice (Great Britain). I do believe that the Venetian power will soon dump Britain as it moves its financial hub (City of London/Wall Street) into Dubai, the political power into Iraq and the spiritual power into the Latin Kingdom of Jerusalem the international city of the New Middle East. So by this time I expect Venice to come out of the shadows of Britain (New Venice) which it hides behind and once again bring back the visible power of ancient Venice.

I think that all this basically goes way back to Atlantis - a power struggle that never ended and that battle is still very much active today.

Graham Hancock’s Magicians of the Gods & Elitist Academia (RT Going Underground)

Hancock and others vindicated?:
"An announcement in an obscure scientific journal this month appears to vindicate 20 years of research by the maverick archaeologist Graham Hancock......The carvings at Gobekli Tepe do indeed describe a comet strike, in 10,950BC, said some staid and very serious experts from the University of Edinburgh’s School of Engineering. Their report appeared as a paper in the little-known International Journal of Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry, published by the University of the Aegean."
- Daily Mail 29th of april 2017

Throughout the ensuing centuries, the fair-skinned descendants of Shem, Noah's oldest son, have ritually been slaughtered by the darker descendants of Ham and Nimrod, in the world's most persistent campaign of racial and religious persecution. Not only did Nimrod kill and eat the fair-skinned descendants of Shem, in his fury and hatred he often burned them alive. The type of human sacrifice involving the eating of the slaughtered human victims derived its name from the combined names of his uncle, Canaan, and the demon god Baal, the two names being combined to form the word "cannibal." Nimrod was also known in ancient history by the names of Marduk, Bel, and Merodach. Because of his importance in its history, Babylon was known as the Land of Nimrod. Nimrod is also cited in the most ancient Masonic constitutions as the founder of Freemasonry...... Chambers Encyclopaedia notes that "After 1200 B.C. the name of Canaanites vanished from history. They changed their name to Phoenician." Thus the most notorious and most hated people on earth received a new lease on life. The barbaric Canaanites had disappeared. Themore civilized Phoenicians, seemingly harmless merchant folk, took their place. Having obtained a monopoly on purple dye, which was highly prized throughout the ancient world, the Canaanites advertised their control over this product by calling themselves Phoenicians, from phoenicia (phoenikiea), the Greek word for purple. From the outset of their history, the Phoenician Canaanites always managed to get a monopoly on some essential product. They later had a monopoly on tin for some centuries, until the Greeks discovered tin in Cornwall in 233B.C. Joseph of Arimathea, the uncle of Jesus, was said to have owned large tin mines in Cornwall.The change of name did not mean that the Canaanites had abandoned their worship of Baal" http://www.whale.to/c/war_against_shem.html

 

Canaanites became = Phoenicians who became = Venetians = Black Nobility


Btw: Bohemian Grove today is directly in line with Canaanite/Babylonian human sacrifice rituals and symbolism.

 

 


They are certainly connected with what Roland Bernard, a financier whistle blower, is talking about - recent explosive interview;

'Of secret services like FBI and CIA, Bernard says, "You think they are there to serve and protect a people, country, et cetera. But they actually turn out to be criminal organizations, in fact heavily so. We're talking about financing wars, creating wars.... Secret services will stop at nothing.... They're trading in drugs, weapons, or for that matter, people.... all of them. All of them."

Where do the Jesuits, Malta Knights, Sabbateans, Zionists, etc. stand in all this? Very close. It seems like the Canaanites/Venetians are in the top echelon, and the most invisible.....

 

David Icke's high-octane take on Venetians:
This Aryan expansion began as far back as 3,000 BC, probably earlier, with their seafaring branch, the Phoenicians. They were a technologically advanced people who have been marginalized by official history and this has obscured their true identity. They are fundamental to understanding where we have come from and where we are now. It was they who brought both their genetic lines and their knowledge to Europe, Scandinavia and the Americas, thousands of years BC.

Their story is told by L. A. Waddell in his book, The Phoenician Origin Of Britons, Scots And Anglo-Saxons. Waddell was a fellow of the Royal Anthropological Institute and spent a lifetime researching the evidence. He shows that the Phoenicians were not a Semitic race as previously believed, but a white Aryan race. Examination of Phoenician tombs reveals that they were a long-headed Aryan race and of a totally different racial type to the Semites.

The Phoenicians of the ancient world travelled by sea from their bases in Asia Minor, Syria and Egypt to settle in the islands of the Mediterranean like Crete and Cyprus and also Greece and Italy. It was the Phoenicians who carried the knowledge which later emerged as the civilizations of Minoan Crete, classic Greece and Roman Italy. They were also the ‘brains’ behind much of the Egyptian culture in this period, before it was hijacked by the reptilians.

The Egyptians knew the Phoenicians as the Panag, Panasa and Fenkha. The Greeks called them the Phoinik-as, and to the Romans they were the Phoenic-es. There is a simple reason why the Egyptians depicted many of their gods with white skin and blue eyes in exactly the same way as other cultures all over the world did. This advanced race, called the Phoenicians, were white skinned and often had blue eyes the same as the reptilian-human crossbreeds and the same, it would appear, as the race from Mars.

Thus we have the Scandinavian races, which were installed by the Phoenicians and other peoples of the same bloodstock and general location. It is also the origin of the Aryan ‘Master Race’ nonsense which obsessed the Nazis and the secret societies which created them. The hero of the Freemason secret society to this day is the mythical Hiram Abif, the so-called builder of King Solomon’s Temple. Abif is supposed to have been a Phoenician. The grandfather of the famous Egyptian Pharaoh Akhenaten, the father of Tutankhamen, was a Phoenician high priest.

The Phoenix, the mythical bird of Egypt, was in fact the Sun bird of the Phoenicians, the emblem of the Sun God, Bil or Bel, and as it has been later symbolized, a peacock or an eagle. Evidence has emerged in recent years about pyramids on Mars, when the NASA scientists, Vincent DiPietro and Gregory Molenaar, discovered six enormous pyramids like those in Egypt in the Cydonia region of Mars. It would make sense that the same Martian race with the same knowledge would also build pyramids when they came to Earth, and the same can be said of the Anunnaki if, as Zecharia Sitchin speculates and I agree, they had settlements on Mars.

The Phoenicians were not confined to the Mediterranean and the Middle East. They landed in Britain around 3,000 BC and unmistakable Phoenician artifacts have been found in Brazil, as well as possible Egyptian remains in the Grand Canyon in America. The Phoenicians landed in the Americas thousands of years before the manufactured ‘photo opportunity’ better known as the journey of Christopher Columbus. The reason that the native legends of the Americas speak of tall ‘white gods’ coming from the sea bringing advanced knowledge is because that is precisely what happened, if you forget the gods bit.'
- The Babylonian Brotherhood, extracted from 'The Biggest Secret' - by David Icke
'As the Freemasonic historian, Manly P. Hall, has explained, Columbus was connected to the secret society network in Genoa and northern Italy, the bastion of the Black Nobility Venetian-Phoenicians and the crossbreeds. He was at one time employed by Rene d’Anjou of the House of Lorraine, a member of the Babylonian Brotherhood and a nobleman with endless contacts across Europe, including Genoa and Venice. Columbus (real name Colon) was a member of a group inspired by the beliefs of the poet, Dante, who was a very active Cathar and Templar and the flag Columbus flew on his ships on that journey to the Americas was… the red cross on the white background. Crucial support for Columbus came from two high initiates of the Babylon Brotherhood network, Lorenzo de Medici, one of the most powerful Venetian families, and the artist Leonardo da Vinci, a Grand Master of the Priory of Sion.
- A HISTORY LESSON YOU WERE NEVER TAUGHT

Rudolf Steiner quotes on secret societies and infiltration:
'Using the firsthand knowledge available to him, Steiner takes us behind the scenes of events in outer history and contemporary culture to reveal a dark world of secret elitist brotherhoods that are attempting to control the masses through the forces of economics, technology, and political assassinations. These hidden groups, he explains, seek power through the use of ritual magic and suggestion........
Consider this: We, citizens of the West, see this escalation to dominate and control power utilities and strategic key regions in the world coming out of America now. Those of us under forty will surely live under its legislative, executive and judiciary authority and control. .... Steiner has no doubt these secret brotherhoods are anti-Christ and says so plainly and without ado.......the truth is most people will not believe what’s happening today on the political horizon. The forces that are at work behind the scenes are as old as the battle between good and evil themselves.'
- about Secret Brotherhoods by Rudolf Steiner
'The goal striven for is to establish a caste of masters in the West and a caste of economic slaves in the East, beginning with the Rhine, and extending eastward all the way into Asia"
- Rudolf Steiner, The Challenge of the Times

"Behind the external politicians, who are just straw men, stand the real leaders (secret society members,) with the conviction that it is the mission of the Anglo-Saxons to exercise a real world rulership, for many centuries into the future". "Anyone who is not aware of this cannot possibly understand the course of current events".
- Rudolf Steiner, Die Geistige Hintergründe des Ersten Weltkrieges (The Spiritual Background of WWI)

"Rudolf Steiner alleged that the political development of the world was controlled by small, secret circles in England capable of manipulating the instincts, thoughts, and feelings of the politicians, and of the general public as well. After the first world war had broken out, he began to say a great deal about these mysterious power centers of the West. In his opinion, these occultists were responsible for the outbreak of the war by lulling the European politicians to sleep and at the same time creating confusion among the European peoples by whipping up their nationalistic, hostile instincts. For this reason, he frequently reminded his audiences that "present-day events" forced him to reveal information about these lodges and their activities. In 1915 and 1916 he showed a map, and he insisted that he was able to prove that this very map, which showed the frontiers of Europe almost exactly as they were drawn after the armistice in 1918, had existed in England in the 1890's....Shortly after the Communist revolution in Russia. Steiner alleged that the secret lodges of the West had turned Russia into a theater for their social experiments, and it looks as if the political development in the East was a very important factor as to why Steiner felt compelled to speak about these lodges and their activities. Rudolf Steiner died in 1925, i.e. before the Nazis came to power in Germany. It is however tempting to speculate whether German national socialism was some kind of social experiment as well, staged by the secret lodges of the West. It is clear from several of Steiner's statements that he viewed Germany as especially challenged and threatened by the powers that be. When he says below that "The real being of the German people cannot perish," this illustrates that Germany was completely on the defensive and in the claws of hidden manipulators
- The Secret Lodges of the West

”Steiner even went further than anti-Masonic ‘conspiracy theorists’ such as Nesta H Webster and the eminent Scottish scholar, Prof. John Robison, himself a Grand Lodge Freemason, both of whom accepted English Masonry’s innocence of intrigue. Steiner, however, made a particular point of discussing the origins of Continental Masonry in the English Lodges. Despite its repudiation of ‘irregular’ Grand Orient Masonry that predominates on Continental Europe and Latin America, English Grand Lodge Masonry, stated Steiner, was also involved in a struggle for world power. He said the British Government was subverted by the secret societies, and that in particular foreign affairs was taken over by “an inner committee.”
Steiner, in tracing the origins of Grand Orient Masonry to the Grand Lodge, wrote that:

'But everywhere in a different way, in many places outside the actual British realm, Freemasonry pursues exclusively or mainly political interests. Such political interests in the most palpable sense are pursued by the ‘Grand-Orient de France’, but also by other ‘Grand Orients’. One might now say: what has that to do with the English?… But view this in conjunction with the fact that the first High-degree Lodge in Paris was founded from England, not France! Not French people but Britons founded it; they only wove the French into their Lodge…

[....]

After listing the Lodges that were founded under the impetus of the English Grand Lodge, from Spain to Russia, Steiner adds that, “these Lodges were founded as the external instruments for certain occult-political impulses.” These impulses included the “fury of the Jacobins,” (who launched a Reign of Terror over France in the name of ‘Liberty, Equality, Fraternity’); Weishaupt’s Illuminati and the Italian Carbonari. Although Steiner admits these began without “evil” intent (which I would dispute), they “continued their underground work in many different forms,” after being driven underground. Steiner alludes to the disingenuousness of Grand Lodge Masonry in being able to say:

‘[L]ook at our Lodges, they are very respectable – and we are not concerned with the others’. But if one can see through the historical connection and the driving forces in an interplay of mutual opposition to one another, then it is indeed high British politics that is concealed behind it.

Atlantis - Sons of The Law of The One VS Sons of Belial
Sons of The Law of The One and Sons of Belial are mentioned by Edgar Cayce, and in the Bible, Enoch's book, The War Scrolls, etc.:

Belial (also Belhor, Baalial, Beliar, Beliall, Beliel; from Hebrew Bliol בלוסל; meaning "without worth") In The 'War of the Sons of Light Against the Sons of Darkness',[20] one of the Dead Sea scrolls, Belial is the leader of the Sons of Darkness
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Belial
Law of One, a concept not only used by Edgar Cayce [1] but also Jon Peniel [2]. We find the same manichean worldview in Rudolf Steiner's descriptions, Indian scriptures, Silmarillion (Tolkien), Nordic mythology, Nicolai Levashov, The Book of Enoch, etc. .

BTW: The Über-egotripper in 'Jupiter Acending' [3] is Balem. (Baal, Belial ) from the powerful dynasty Abrasax - close to Abraxas, a gnostic concept, often an Archon like Yaldabaoth (Jehovah is Yaldabaoth according to John Lamb Nash).

On a flippant sidenote regarding Dutroux: "The police centered their investigation on an occult group called Institut Abrasax. It is a a legal organization set up in 1990 that teaches harmfull sorcery and initiation into satanic rites"
-Leyla Linton, "Satanic sect raided by child-sex police", London Times, London UK, 1996 DEC 24

[1] History seems to be repeating itself with this latest iteration of the Mad Scientist Syndrome in the Cult of Transhumanism. Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet, also described the genetic engineers of Atlantis who created chimeras (man-animal hybrid creatures or manimals) which they called “things,” that were then exploited by the Atlantean Ruling Class.

According to Edgar Cayce on Atlantis, “The reference to the ‘things’ imply that these creations probably had the status of slaves and were treated more like slaves or robots than human beings. Evidently one group, the Sons of Belial, wanted to keep these creatures in a state of slavery, while the other group, the Sons of the Law of the One, wanted to treat these creatures like the entrapped souls they were and help them regain a comprehension of their relationship with God.”

“Many people find it difficult to accept the possibility that the advanced civilization of Atlantis described by Edgar Cayce could have existed and disappeared with so little trace,” writes the author. “The slaves, automatons or ‘things’ described in the Atlantean life readings seem to have returned to haunt the world in the underprivileged, uneducated uncared-for masses of humanity. In Atlantis man faced a choice between following the Sons of the Law of the One (meaning his realization of his relationship with God) and the sons of Belial (meaning the use of his creative powers for self-aggrandizement). The strife among men brought physical destruction in the earth. Now man again is forced to choose between selfishness and unselfishness. He can use his scientific knowledge to improve the lot of all. He also has in his hands the means to bring about world destruction rivaling that of Atlantis.”

Flash forward… Now we have the emergence of the Prophets and Rabbis of Transhumanism…

Could they be the Sons of Belial “Born Again”?

Today there is a physical as well as a metaphysical battle going on between what can be called the Organics and the Synthetics. The Organics don’t want to eat genetically modified foods (GMO), breath geo-engineered toxic chem-trailed air, or have nanobots released into their bodies through disease and death producing vaccines, which are nothing but a clever depopulation scheme.

The Synthetics are fronted by mega-corporations like Monsanto, Google, et al and government agencies like the Pentagon’s DARPA, as well as the FDA, NIH, CDC, USDA etc. and their unrelenting drive toward a totalitarian society in the United States, U.K., Australia and other so-called First World nation-states. This model of a corporate-governmental technocratic imperialism is evidenced by daily events around the world.
-Transhumanism: The Anti-Human Agenda by URI DOWBENKO (NEW DAWN MAGAZINE)

 

 

[2] Anciently, there were two fundamental organizations that competed for the minds of mankind. These two groups have been described in various religious texts using somewhat different names. One group was called the Children of the Law of One or the Children of Light and the other was called the Children of Belial or the Sons of Baal (Book of Genesis in the Old Testament). One group taught the Doctrines of Oneness and the other group taught the Doctrines of Separation.

[...]

Children of the Law of One are also referred to as the “Sons of Light,” and the Sons of Belial are called the “Sons of Darkness.” Similar termnology is found in the Dead Sea Scrolls.

“The Sons of Belial were selfish, materially oriented individuals who focused on the pleasures of satisfying their own physical appetites and desires, with no respect for others. As their lives filled with thoughts of material objects, they came to believe, like many of us today, that the acquisition of more and more would bring them happiness. When disaster threatened Atlantis, they were so involved in the material world they did not heed the advice of wiser individuals, who urged everyone to leave if they wished to continue their lifetime on this planet.....In ancient times, the Children of the Law of One focused on love and practiced prayer and meditation, hoping to promote everyone’s spiritual knowledge. They followed the Golden Rule, and also believed that it was not possible to do something (either good or evil) to another without simultaneously do it to themselves

Babylon - The Unanswered Mystery of 7,000-year-old Ubaid Lizardmen

The Babylon Mystery and its dark factions are remnants of the evil that survived Atlantis? Probably. It goes way more back than that, with exopolitics, Saturn, and ET's (and/or intradimensionals) coming into the picture.....my hunch.

Reptilians - John E. Mack and David Icke have something in common btw.

 

Danish article about Atlantis and the power elite.

Found this vague crypto-stuff also:

The very oldest "brotherhoods" trace their origins all the way back to the "Time" before the original great Flood, to "First Time" (Zep Tepi) and have been working for several millennia now to "put Humpty Dumpty together again" and regressively transform our present "Second Time" (basic unit of time being the 'second') back to "First Time" ('lockdown').

All through these several most recent millennia, Anatolia/Turkey was located at the crucial Crossroads where Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Subcontinent all join.

Some of these old brotherhoods are working to re-establish the global dominion of the Empire that administered this slave-planet before the "destruction of a star".

This could very well be the origin of the Sabbateans/Sabbataians/Shabbathaians/Sebottians ("predators disguised as sheep") who have been utilizing the Abrahamic Faiths as their "Shadow Triad", with the core of "True Faith" balanced through the centuries by the millions and billions and the compelling testament of their human experience.

This is reflected in the various EU symbols showing a crescent or stars arranged in a crescent oriented so as to make a reference to "East".

And there is a different line that can be regarded as a "Templar" line in that the root of 'temple' means 'time'.
http://www.thunderbolts.info/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=47789&sid=be8db71923aaeffa3bce39ac224956f4

[3] I think they destroyed the 'Jupiter Ascending', it was postponed most mysteriously for a long time (without precedent) after it was supposed to premier. They edited it. The final result was an irritating watered down superficial mix, but at least some symbolism is clear:

"As writers such as David Icke have been saying for many years, the importance of DNA to the Elite is paramount and it is why the DNA has been focused on in ancient times. Evidence for such ideas can be found on the Sumerian tablets and not least the ‘Genetic Disc’ made from lydite and shows DNA splicing. The late Lloyd Pye did a lot of great research in this area, not least his work on the Starchild skull.

 

 


The prehistoric genetic disc found in South America shows biological details like male sperms, female egg cell and the genitals, the fertilized egg, foetus and the growing embryo.
The Goddess and ‘Queen Bee’ is another symbol that relates to the knowledge associated with the Matracondrial DNA and therefore the obsession with ‘queens and kings’ and their blood/DNA throughout history.

 

 

The 33rd Degree Freemason and historian, Manly P. Hall, points out in his book, ‘The Secret Teachings of All Ages’ that the Bee and the Fleur-de-lis symbol are interchangeable. So in the movie we have a scene where Jupiter (Milas Kunis) is taken into care by Sting Apini (Sean Pen) a Han Solo figure with part Bee DNA, to be protected. There she is quickly shown to be a ‘commander of Bees’ and from then on in the movie the two fallen angel protectors, Caine and Sting refer her to as ‘royalty’"- Jupiter (Lucifer) Ascending & the Harvesting of Souls

I hope you can get peeks of the structure by now....even through the whole picture is gigantic, cryptic and encyclopedic, and much is disparate, omitted, these tidbits in terms of dot-connecting are still some of the most profound unanswered questions IMO.

Response from the extremely knowledgeable M.K. Stylinski AKA Infrakshun ( https://infrakshun.wordpress.com/ )

It looks like you have a very sound handle on the whole Jewish/Zionist deal. I can't add anything more for the reasons I'll give below, but you have some interesting areas for further research there.

Hitler was just another puppet for psychopaths' designs working through their various co-opted bodies. Rudolf Hess wrote most of Mein Kampf with a supporting role from Martin Boorman, as far as I can recall.

"I am just not for huge collectivized state-structures in any case (more anarchistic but no isms). Besides; the anomalies about Hitler might point to an even deeper narrative than the new pro-Hitler crowds might like."

Spot on.

With your spiritual bent, UFO experiences and interest in Zionism and geopolitics I would highly recommend reading all of Laura Knight-Jadcyzk's books. Thank you also for your notes on Rudolf Steiner which was very interesting.

"Canaanites became = Phoenicians who became = Venetians = Black Nobility."

I believe this is the trajectory, being saturated in Babylonian Majick as well as mercantilism and the financial clout that goes behind it. Have you looked into Wikispooks? This is probably the closet and most accurate information on modern Establishment lines. Jesuit or Zionist, Liberal or Conservative etc. these are all just spin offs from a central, global occult elite which, bizarrely enough, I believe has a point of negative and positive balance within it. Tracing the bloodline lineage of the Establishment factions is a never ending process that seems to be a double-edged sword....

As to Zionism and Jews well, I think you probably already get this: namely that while Judaism, Jewish culture, various streams of Zionism, Hassidic sects etc. are largely a product of pathology it is not Jews per se that is the problem, it is the psychopathy or ponerisation that has occurred within this tribe and which now uses Zionism and Judaism as a tool of psychopathic conquest. It is indeed a high probability those whom we think of as Semitic "Jews" are merely chattel for the Khazarian/ Ashkenazi pool and likely the genetic ponerisation and appropriation of modern Jews and their tribalism. Although the infection was already taking place via Yahweh and the Israelite tribes and on down through the Pharisees and Levitical priests of Judea and Babylon where the black magic and channelling of higher negative entities really began to gain ground. Ashkenazim was merely the collective and final installation of that ancestral foundation - a massive geographical and genetic holocaust to take over and camouflage psychopathy with the most convenient traumatised and pathologised tribe: Jews. And further up the pyramid one might say that we have hyperdimensional entities (ultra-terrestrials or Archons, Greys etc. - call them what you will) actively downloading the "software" into various personality-disordered individuals. Evidence is compelling but still only circumstantial. (How could it be otherwise?) One can't put such a huge experiment upon humanity into a convenient lab and extract neat, empirical, deductive criteria. I suppose Knight-Jadczyk has come closest and built on the pioneers of the past who were so desperately trying to alert us to this global predator but did not have the science or true reference points of language to do it.

 

"So the roots of freemasonry are way older than just 6000 or 8000 years. I suspect Atlantean artefacts and that the roots of freemasonry are to be found in Atlantis before Egypt."

I agree. Which is why it was very probably corrupted or ponerised from the start, at least at the apex of such a system. Atlantis, according to various writers destroyed itself due to the exact same trajectory we now find ourselves. Evil always finds a way to continue to express itself and re-work its "magick." What better way to do that than to insinuate itself within Freemasonry? Hierarchical systems are designed precisely for such authoritarianism rooted in its abstract organisational order (institutionalised patterns of thinking) and repeated dynamics of statism and its superiors and subordinates. Not to say that there weren't/aren't genuine folks within the brotherhood and it did much good, but I think such a negative generational mind-virus thinks long-term and how best to maximise it's light nurients, shall we say; how to extract the maximum food in terms of a multi-generational cycle based on the simple sine wave. It's for this reason that the Rosicrucians and Rothschild Illuminism carried the modern baton of ritualistic magick and psychopathy into the modern age. Yes, it was protected as you have seen with the "Jewish" lodges (The Order of Zion and its American partner B’nai B’rith) The Protocols of Zion for example, regardless of its authorship, is the most extraordinary set of schizoidal declarations that's ever been produced. It is a perfect insight into the mind of pathocratic maneuvering - setting up the Jewish conspiracy in popular culture as a future meme. In reality, it is a treatise on how the mind of the psychopath works at a hyper-reality. This time of Machiavellian slight of hand saturates Jewish mythology as you know. So, whatever the particular strains of ponoerisation taking place within Judaism - Chabad or Sabbateans etc. - the inexorable chess game moves forward where Muslims become the new Jews and Jewish ethnocentrism and supremacy is diversified and strengthened through a pernicious victimhood that ensures cognitive, cultural and philosophical dominance. Quite a feat!

It's all just endless repeats of the same old cycle of cat and mouse, predator and prey; different cultures, same dynamics leading up to the Great Harvestt of Souls in the not too distant future and as it might have been with the demise of Atlantis. Of course, as there is nothing new under the same, that same macrocosmic cycle of soul-harvest is probably taking place in our current times which see the demise of Official Culture as expressed through Western civllisation and its present technology in the hands of such Pathocrats.

As you probably know, it may all be rooted in pre and post Atlantean priesthood the ritualistic, techo-sorcery of which has been passed on down through the Four Ages of Mankind, and peridocally strengthened by hyperdimensional interference via psychopathic vessels. Chaos and conflict and the installation of tribalism and later hierarchical modes of living and being allows this barabarism of blood-letting/ritual sacrifice to continue through ancient and modern enactments. The extraction of negative energy channelled to where it can be used as psych-spiritual nourishment along the involutionary line is the primary objective. Hence the focus on deities encouraging the same from Aztec to Spanish inquisition to the blood libel of Saturn's children - it's all just re-packaging of the same essential focus: create as much chaos and fear as possible as high-energy, psycho-spiritual nutrient.

If Humanity is essentially farmed, it matters little to me now who it is exactly that pulls the strings of a multitude of psychologically deviant vessels down here when the Three Model Establishment itself may well just be yet another tier in a much higher pyramid of control. So, what if it is the Jesuits and their Black Pope? So, what if it is Mossad big-wigs channelling "demons" via an exclusive Satanic circle...Good to know - knowledge is important - but In the end, the energy we expend in looking for the truth "out there" is not always a fair exchange when we look at the squandered creativity and potential for Being within ourselves.

It's for this reason I no longer research the question of who's who in Establishment control - Zionist or otherwise. This is partly because I believe I have enough comprehension of the basic structure and players but also due to the awareness that we'll never know the ultimate King Pin here on Earth, and indeed we don't need to know. Perhaps, what we need to understand is the general dynamics of evil in ourselves, how it works through us and in society, through history and how it expresses itself through the present pathocracy as Lowbaczweski called it; how we can become nodes of its influence without even noticing. Ideologies and beliefs become programs of conscienceless beings - "-isms" are used as interchangeable software for socio-cultural "upgrades" to keep pace with the collective conscience as it sees more of the bigger picture. Evil adapts through us, until that adaptation reaches a dead end and the cycle turns once more. In ones sense, there is no "master spider" since psycho-spiritual evil operates in a holographic fashion and can never be completely eradicated, nor should it - it is essential to the functioning of the planet and the cosmos. All that's needed is balance. This is why I think it's so important that our own ego and predator as a "foreign installation" must have the light shone upon it by our own will if w are to divest ourselves of negative influences, the ignorance of which makes us prone to ponerological influences and higher negative overshadowing as a result - usually whilst thinking we are resisting evil.


If it is true that occult psychopaths lie at the top of the Zionist Establishment - indeed blurring the lines between the various arms - then the more you focus on the physical expressions of this negative thought centre the more you will become a known to it. Be careful of that. No one is a nobody on that score and it has definite repercussions in one's life. You are touching on things that are connected to archetypal evil of the profoundest kind. This is why we need to work on ourselves in order to cope with the lessons that are necessarily thrown our way as a result of looking into that particular abyss. Humility is essential, as is an economy of energy; how can you BEST use that creative energy so that is will give access to your true reason for being? What will you do, once you have reached an intellectual dead end and the many headed hydra of psychopathic expression throws us yet more "clues" as to its core identity here on planet earth?

Although there is always much more to learn regarding the nature of our collective shadow and the pathology which anchors such negativity, I feel that I know enough of the mechanics of evil to start to assist others in building psychological defences, a more 'on the ground' approach, if you will, away from the blogsphere.

[Comment: I understand Infrakshun's important point but tend to think that the physical expressions through which evil operate must be named and found regardless of the constant morphing in time]

Quotes About the Jesuit Order ("Society of Jesus") From Famous People

"My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. Their [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration [in 1814 by Pope Pius VII] is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] death. … I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of [Ignatius de] Loyola."
- John Adams (1735-1826; 2nd President of the United States)

"The Jesuits…are a secret society – a sort of Masonic order – with superadded features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous."
– Samuel Morse (1791-1872; American inventor of the telegraph; author of the book Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States)

President Thomas Jefferson:

“I do not like the reappearance of the Jesuits...Shall we not have regular swarms of them here, in as many disguises as only a king of the gypsies can assume, dressed as printers, publishers, writers and schoolmasters? If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of Loyola’s. Nevertheless, we are compelled by our system of religious toleration to offer them an asylum....” (The Power and Secret of the Jesuits, Rene Fulop-Miller, 390)

Thomas Jefferson replied to his predecessor:

“Like you, I disapprove of the restoration of the Jesuits, for it means a step backwards from light into darkness....” (The Power and Secret of the Jesuits, Rene Fulop-Miller, 390)

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country, the United States of America are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe."
- Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general who served in under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War)

President Abraham Lincoln:

“This [American Civil] war [of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis [President of the Confederacy] nor anyone of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that under the mask of Democracy, the money and arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France, were at their disposal if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are, in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know on that subject from the knowledge of the nation, for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would at once take a tenfold more savage and bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The Protestants of both the North and the South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor [Samuel B.] Morse [Ed. Note: famous for the Morse code] has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome [i.e., at the Vatican] to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the [Roman Catholic] priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our Constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free.” (Burke McCarty; The Suppressed Truth About The Assassination Of Abraham Lincoln)

President Lincoln told Catholic priest, Charles Chiniquy (whom as a lawyer, Lincoln had defended against the Catholic Church; defeated them, revealed great scandal in the Chicago diocese, which led the Vatican and its military intelligence/assassins [the Jesuits] to become Lincoln's mortal enemy!) Abraham Lincoln's views on the Jesuits:

"So many plots have already been made against my life, that it is a real miracle that they have all failed . . . But can we expect that God will make a perpetual miracle to save my life? I believe not. The Jesuits are so expert in those deeds of blood that Henry IV (king of France who was assassinated by the Jesuit Revaillac for giving liberty to his people), said that it was impossible to escape them, and he became their victim, though he did all he could to protect himself. My escape from their hands, since the letter of the Pope to Jeff Davis has sharpened a million of daggers to pierce my breast, would be more that a miracle. . . . I know that Jesuits never forget nor forsake (never give up). Man must not care how and where he dies, provided he dies at the post of honor and duty." (Charles Chiniquy; Fifty Years In The Church Of Rome-1886)

“Above all I have learned from the Jesuits. And so did Lenin too, as far as I recall. The world has never known anything quite so splendid as the hierarchical structure of the [Roman] Catholic Church. There were quite a few things I simply appropriated from the Jesuits for the use of the [Nazi] Party.
- Adolph Hitler (1889-1945; Nazi leader and chancellor of Germany from 1933-1945)

"The Jesuits are a MILITARY organization, not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organization is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses."
– Napoleon I (i.e., Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the French)

"It is my opinion that if the liberties of this country – the United States of America – are destroyed, it will be by the subtlety of the Roman Catholic Jesuit priests, for they are the most crafty, dangerous enemies to civil and religious liberty. They have instigated MOST of the wars of Europe."
– Marquis de LaFayette (1757-1834; French statesman and general. He served in the American Continental Army under the command of General George Washington during the American Revolutionary War.)

“Alas, I knew they [i.e., the Jesuits] would poison me; but I did not expect to die in so slow and cruel a manner.” (1774)
- Pope Clement XIV (Who had “forever” abolished the Jesuit Order in 1773)

“It is impossible to read Elizabethan history [i.e., the history surrounding Queen Elizabeth I of England; queen: 1558-1603] except in the context of an army of Jesuits, masters of deceit, treachery, treason, infiltration, subversion, assassination, insurrection, civil war and coercion, plotting for the good of the papacy, and the defeat of all the Pope’s foes anywhere in the world.” (1987)
- J.E.C. Shepherd (Canadian historian)

"Between 1555 and 1931 the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] was expelled from at least 83 countries, city states and cities, for engaging in political intrigue and subversion plots against the welfare of the State, according to the records of a Jesuit priest of repute [Thomas J. Campbell]. …Practically every instance of expulsion was for political intrigue, political infiltration, political subversion, and inciting to political insurrection." (1987)
- J.E.C. Shepherd (Canadian historian)

“[Wherever] a totalitarian movement erupts, whether Communist or Nazi [Fascist], a Jesuit can be found in the role of ‘adviser’ or leader; in Cuba [it was] [Jesuit-trained] Castro’s ‘Father’ Armando Llorente…”
- Emanuel M. Josephson (American physician and historian)

"[The Jesuits] are the deadly enemies of civil and religious liberty."
- R. W. Thompson (Ex-Secretary, American Navy)

“The whole frightful responsibility for this terrible Thirty Years’ War [1618-1648] must rest upon the [Holy Roman] Emperor Ferdinand II, and his teachers, rulers, and bosom friends – the Sons of Loyola [i.e., the Jesuit Order].”
- Theodor Griesinger (German historian; 1873)

“The Jesuit Order at last reached the pinnacle of its power and prestige in the early eighteenth century [i.e., the early 1700s]. It had become more influential and more wealthy than any other organization in the world. It held a position in world affairs that no oath-bound group of men has ever held before or since… ‘Nearly all the Kings and Sovereigns of Europe had only Jesuits as directors of their consciences [i.e., as confessor-priests], so that the whole of Europe appeared to be governed by Jesuits only.’” (1927; using a short quote by Jesuit Cordara)
- Boyd Barrett (Ex-Jesuit)

“If you trace Masonry, through all its Orders, till you come to the grand tip-top head Mason of the World, you will discover that the dread individual and the Chief of the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Superior General of the Jesuit Order] are one and the same person.”
- James Parton (American historian)

“In Roman Catholic circles it is well known that the Black Pope is the term used for the [Superior] General of the Jesuits. As the Pope is always robed in white, and the [Jesuit Superior] General in black, the contrast is obvious. But those Romanists who do not greatly love the Jesuits, and their number is not limited, use the term as indicating that the Black Pope rules the White Pope…even while the former [i.e., the Black Pope] is obligated to make, at least, a show of submission to the latter.” (1896)
- M.F. Cusack (Ex-nun of Kenmore; author of the book The Black Pope)

“…The Jesuits are the only religious order in the Church of Rome…which has lain under the ban of the [‘White’] Pope, or which has been expelled from any country because of its interference in politics. Hence we may expect to find that to obtain political power forms a main feature in the plans of the Society [of Jesus – i.e., the Jesuit Order].” (1896)
- M.F. Cusack

“All these things cause the Father-General [of the Jesuits] to be feared by the Pope and sovereigns… A sovereign who is not their [the Jesuits’] friend will sooner or later experience their vengeance.” (1852)
- Luigi Desanctis (Official Censor of the Inquisition)

“The Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuit Order] is the enemy of man. The whole human race should unite for its overthrow. …For there is no alternative between its total extirpation, and the absolute corruption and degradation of mankind.”
- Robert J. Breckinridge (author)

“The Jesuits…are simply the Romish army for the earthly sovereignty of the world in the future, with the Pontiff of Rome for emperor…that’s their ideal. …It is simple lust of power, of filthy earthly gain, of domination – something like a universal serfdom with them [i.e., the Jesuits] as masters – that’s all they stand for. They don’t even believe in God perhaps.”
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881; famous Russian novelist)

“I [Roman Catholic Bishop Palafox] found almost all the wealth…and all the treasures of the Province of America in the hands of the Jesuits… ((Ed. Comment: I assume the Bishop is talking specifically about SOUTH America.))

All this property and all these considerable revenues which might make a sovereign powerful, serve no other purpose than to maintain ten [Jesuit] colleges… To this may be added the extraordinary skill with which they [the Jesuits] make use of and increase their super-abundant wealth. They maintain public warehouses, cattle fairs, butcher-stalls, and shops… They lend out their money for usury, and thus cause the greatest loss and injury to others.”
- Roman Catholic Bishop Palafox (from a letter of his in 1647)

“For the Vatican [Ed. Comment: Even then controlled by the Black Pope and his Jesuit Order] condemned the Declaration of Independence as ‘wickedness’…and called the Constitution of the United States ‘a Satanic document’.”
– Avro Manhatten (author; from his book The Dollar and the Vatican)

“The [Jesuit Superior] General is at the head of this black and mute militia, which thinks, wills, acts, obeys – [as] the passive instrument of his designs. Their whole life must have but one aim – the advancement of the [Jesuit] Order to which they are attached.” (1912)
- Jeremiah J. Crowley (Irishman; ex-priest in the Roman Catholic Church; author of the book Romanism: Menace to the Nation)

“Never before in the course of the world’s history had such a Society [i.e., the Jesuit Order] appeared. The old Roman Senate itself did not lay schemes for world domination with greater certainty of success.” (1800)
- Friedrich von Hardenberg (German philosopher)

“[Jesuit-trained Illuminist Adam] Weishaupt and his fellow Jesuits cut off the income to the Vatican by launching and leading the French Revolution; by directing Napoleon’s conquest of Catholic Europe; [and] …by eventually having Napoleon throw Pope Pius VII in jail at Avignon until he agreed, as the price for his release, to reestablish the Jesuit Order. This Jesuit war on the Vatican was terminated by the Congress of Vienna and by the secret, 1822 Treaty of Verona.”
- Emanuel M. Josephson (American physician and historian)

“Why would the Jesuits use their implacable enemy, the Jews, to further their designs for world dominion? The Jesuits never do anything out in the open where they can be exposed. If they are recognized as the culprits, they will be blamed and suffer the consequences, but if they can use someone else as the ‘cause of the world’s problems’, especially an enemy they can destroy in the process, then they have simultaneously accomplished two of their objectives. The Jewish people are the perfect scapegoat. Since the Rothschilds are Jesuit agents operating under a Jewish cover, using them [i.e., the Rothschilds] in forming the Illuminati back in 1776 effectively throws the onus of this conspiracy on the Jews. The Rothschilds are certainly not the only Jesuit agents that operate under a Jewish front.

“History books will tell us that the French Revolution first began in 1787 or 1789, depending on which book you read. However, it was actually planned by [Jesuit] Dr. Adam Weishaupt and the House of Rothschild almost 20 years before the Revolution took place.”
- William Sutton (Author of The New Age Movement and The Illuminati 666)

“Eight years before the attempted [Spanish] Armada invasion [of 1588], Jesuits were seditiously active plotting the overthrow of the English government. By using different disguises, aliases, and secret codes, to illegally slip in and out of England, Jesuit Robert Parson, in 1580, had led and then later organized a mission to bring other Jesuits into England to engage in a work of subversion.

When the [attempted] invasion [by the Spanish Armada] failed, these masters of intrigue [i.e., the Jesuits] turned to another bizarre scheme. Known in your encyclopedia under the subject, ‘The Gunpowder Plot’ – thirteen Catholic noblemen and five Jesuits formed a conspiracy devising a plan to explode 36 barrels of gunpowder in the cellar of the House of Lords and kill King James I, and members of the [House of] Commons as they assembled for the opening of Parliament on 5 November 1605. Their plan was to blow up the Parliament building and out of the chaos incite the people into a full insurrection.

…But before the date it [i.e., the basement full of explosives] was to be detonated, the explosives were discovered, leading to the arrest of all those involved. …Of the five Jesuits involved, two escaped, one died in prison, and two were convicted and executed.”
- John Daniel (Author of the book The Grand Design Exposed)

“They [i.e., the Jesuits] have so constantly mixed themselves up in court and state intrigues that they must, in justice, be reproached with striving after world dominion. They cost kings their lives, not on the scaffold, but by assassination, and equally hurtful as the society of Illuminati; they were the foremost among the crowd, at all events, who applauded the murder scenes in Paris [during the French Revolution].”
Hector Macpherson (Author of the book The Jesuits in History)

“[Jesuit Adam] Weishaupt established the [modern version of the] Illuminati specifically to be a front organization behind which the Jesuits could hide. After being [formally] abolished by [Pope] Clement XIV in 1773, the Jesuits used the Illuminati and other organizations to carry out their operations. Thus, the front organizations would be blamed for the trouble caused by the Jesuits.”
- Bill Hughes (Author of The Secret Terrorists and The Enemy Unmasked)

“For over 200 years, the goal [of the Jesuits] has been the complete destruction of the United States Constitution. In the religious arena, the goal of the Jesuits is to wipe out any trace of Protestantism and other religions, and to restore worldwide domination by the pope.”
- Bill Hughes (From his book The Secret Terrorists)

“The organization of the [Roman Catholic] Hierarchy is a complete military despotism, of which the Pope is the ostensible [i.e., apparent; seeming] head; but of which, the Black Pope [Ed. Note: The Superior General of the Jesuits], is the real head. The Black Pope is the head of the order of the Jesuits, and is called a General [i.e., the Superior General]. He not only has command of his own order, but [also] directs and controls the general policy of the [Roman Catholic] Church. He [the Black Pope] is the power behind the throne, and is the real potential head of the Hierarchy. The whole machine is under the strictest rules of military discipline. The whole thought and will of this machine, to plan, propose and execute, is found in its head. There is no independence of thought, or of action, in its subordinate parts. Implicit and unquestioning obedience to the orders of superiors in authority, is the sworn duty of the priesthood of every grade…”
- Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris

“[Jesuit-trained Illuminist Adam] Weishaupt’s success in forcing the Vatican to reestablish the abolished Jesuit Order [Ed. Note: it had been abolished in 1773 by Pope Clement XIV], through revival of the Church’s original Nazarene Communism in the form of present-day Communism, led to the conspiracy’s control by the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuits]...
…Wherever a totalitarian movement erupts, whether Communist or Nazi, a Jesuit can be found in the role of ‘advisor’ or leader; in [Communist] Cuba Fr. Armando Llorente and in Argentina the neo-Nazis are led by Fr. Menvieille.”
- Emanuel M. Josephson (1968)

“Today they [i.e., the Jesuits] are stronger in the United States than they ever were in any of the countries of Europe which expelled them as a menace to the government.” (1912)
- Jeremiah J. Crowley

“Above all things, Jesuits are ‘confessors’. Their services unto the royalty were urged as a ‘need’, as they became assigned to hear the confessions of the aristocrats, emperors, kings, queens, princes, princesses, [‘royal’] mistresses, those in every level of government – they all revealed their secret plans, their intimate sins, their inner-most thoughts, as their lives became virtually an open book to the Jesuits.

…Through various means of diplomacy, Jesuits worked their way into offices of State, climbing up to be the counselors of kings, and shaping the policy of nations. But it was ‘religion’ and its sacred duties of hearing the confessions of their penitents, and being their religious ‘wise’ guides, that was the key to their success. Without the ‘need’ of a religious confessor, the history of the Jesuits may have been quite different. And the Jesuits made very sure that it was they who filled that need as confessors [Ed. Note: especially to the rich and power elite] instead of the other orders of priests, by providing a most attractive policy of leniency as an enticement for their penitents.”
- John Daniel (Author of the book The Grand Design Exposed)

“In the agreement to rescue Rome [i.e., the Roman Catholic Church’s hierarchy] from the predicament of losing its world control to Protestantism, and to preserve the spiritual and temporal supremacy which the popes [had] ‘usurped’ during the Middle Ages, Rome now ‘sold’ the [Roman Catholic] Church to the Society of Jesus [i.e., the Jesuits]; in essence the popes surrendered themselves into their hands.”
- John Daniel

“…By a ‘providential’ synchronism, when [Italian dictator] Mussolini seized power in Italy thanks to don Sturzo, Jesuit and chief of the Catholic party, Monseigneur Seipel, a Jesuit, became chancellor of Austria. He held that position until 1929, with an interregnum of two years, and, during those decisive years, he led the Austrian interior politics on to the reactionary and clerical road; his successors followed him on that road which led to the absorption of that country into the German block. The bloody repression of working-class uprisings earned him [i.e., Jesuit Monseigneur Seipel] the nickname ‘Keine Milde Kardinal’ – the ‘Cardinal without mercy’.”
- Edmond Paris (Author of the book The Secret History of the Jesuits)

“It is believed that the Pope [i.e., Pius XI] will offer these services to Signor [Benito] Mussolini through the Jesuit Father Pietro Tachi-Venturi, who is often consulted by Mussolini on important matters.”
- (Daily Express, 2/9/1935) BRITISH UNITED PRESS

“The SS had been organized by [Heinrich] Himmler according to the principles of the Jesuit Order. The rules of service and spiritual exercises prescribed by Ignatius de Loyola [Ed. Note: the founder of the Jesuit Order] constituted a model which [Heinrich] Himmler strove carefully to copy. Absolute obedience was the supreme rule; every order had to be executed without comment.”
- Walter Shellenberg ((Chief of the Nazi Sicherheitdienst (SD))

“The term ‘Jesuit’ has become synonymous with terms like deceit, chicanery, infiltration, intrigue, subversion…many organized Jesuits have been justly described as treacherous, traitorous workers, seducing many in the service of the Roman Pontiff away from national allegiance…” (1987)
- J. E. C. Shepherd (Canadian historian)

“There was no disguise they (the Jesuits) could not assume, and therefore, there was no place into which they could not penetrate. They could enter unheard the closet of the Monarch, or the Cabinet of the Statesman. They could sit unseen in convocation or General Assembly, and mingle unsuspected in the deliberations and debates. There was no tongue they could not speak, and no creed they could not profess, and thus there was no people among whom they might not sojourn, and no church whose membership they might not enter and whose functions they might not discharge. The could execrate [i.e., sharply denounce] the Pope with the Lutheran, and swear the Solemn League with the Covenanter.”
- J.A. Wylie (Rev.; Author of the book The History of Protestantism)

“The assassins of St. Bartholomew [i.e., the Catholics who slaughtered the French Protestant Huguenots in 1572, starting with the St. Bartholomew massacre on August 24th], the inquisitors and the Jesuits are monsters produced by malignant imaginations; they are the natural allies of the spirit of darkness and of death…” (1883)
- Edwin A. Sherman (Author of the book The Engineer Corps of Hell)

President Of Europe Says : "We Are All Jesuits"
“The newspaper proudly quoted Van Rompuy as announcing: 'We are all Jesuits'. He was referring to those prominent European leaders with whom he is developing the architecture for the future Europe. 'It creates unbreakable ties. So there is a 'Jesuits International''.
Who are those people that Van Rompuy, himself schooled by the Jesuits at Sint-Jan Berchman College in Brussels, was talking about? First of all, there is José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission. Secondly, there is Jean-Claude Juncker, Prime minister of Luxembourg and Chairman of the Euro group. Van Rompuy also mentions the President of the European Central Bank (ECB), Mario Draghi, who was schooled in the Roman Jesuit College Instituto Massimiliano Massimo. The Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti and his Spanish collegue Mariano Rajoy have also been shaped by Jesuit colleges, Van Rompuy cheerfully added. ..
..Listening to Van Rompuy, you will instantly notice the similarities of the Jesuits with Europe. Jesuits formed the vanguard of the Catholic Church, like the European elite is the vanguard of the European integration. Both portray themselves as 'the elite', elevated above the ordinary people. Their methods are very similar. A sophisticated lie or purposeful deception is allowed when framed in the interest of the greater goal. A barely contained cynicism typifies the attitude toward the normal citizen, the ignorant fool, who within a democracy needs to be protected from himself. The Catholic and European elites work through inner circles. The rest is prose. Van Rompuy, Barroso, Monti and Rajoy are frequent visitors at papal audiences.

A force so powerful even legendary CIA Agent E. Howard Hunt has to admit on camera that the Jesuits are the greatest intelligence agency on Earth. All from Howard’s own mouth so no one can argue with that. You must understand that the Jesuits and The Entity have far greater intelligence than all other agencies around including the Mercer created British Intelligence created by Mercer, Sir John Dee:

“In reaction against many other spiritual streams in Europe, the opposite way was taken by those who are usually called Jesuits. The radical, fundamental difference between what we justifiably call the Christian way of the Spirit and the Jesuit way of the Spirit, which gives a one-sided exaggeration to the Jesus-Principle, is that the intention of the Jesuit way is to work directly, at all times upon the Will. The difference is clearly shown in the method by which the pupil of Jesuitism is educated. Jesuitism is not to be taken lightly, or merely exoterically, but also esoterically, for it is rooted in esotericism. It is not, however, rooted in the spiritual life..”
- Rudolf Steiner, From Jesus to Christ: Lecture I: Jesuit and Rosicrucian Training

'.. at the end of the 18 th and beginning of the 19 th century, but also on into our times, certain people infiltrated themselves into Masonic Orders, worked within them and carried into them these high degrees , developed these high degrees within Freemasonry ... People are gullible, ofte n even when they are initiated into those things. And those who smuggled themselves in, those are the members of the ‘Society of Jesus’, they are Jesuits ' - Rudolf Steiner
source: http://www.lochmann-verlag.com/Crisis%20A5%208th%20chapter.pdf
The movement which interests us in connection with out spiritual-scientific point of view, and which we may call an extraordinarily dangerous error in a certain sense, is the movement known in the external world as Jesuitism. In Jesuitism we encounter a dangerous exaggeration of the Jesus-Principle."

Transhumanism is a “Western philosophy” - it’s roots can be traced to FM-2030 (born in Iran, but lived and taught in New York, Los Angeles, and Miami) and Max More (born in England, founded Extropy Institute in California, currently CEO of Alcor in Arizona). Transhumanism today is primarily identified with Humanity Plus, a nonprofit affiliated with two California groups - Singularity Institute and Foresight Institute, plus Utah’s Mormon Transhumanist Association.

Humanity+ has dozens of chapters worldwide, but the bulk of them are in the USA. China is listed by H+ as having one chapter, and Japan’s “organizing” a chapter - but South Korea and Singapore aren’t represented.

Does the history of Transhumanism and present-day H+ centralization in the USA/Euro sphere indicate that the rest of the world is far, far behind in “transhumanist” and “techno-futurist” thinking?

To be more specific: Is East Asian (China, Japan, South Korea, Singapore, Taiwan) lack of representation in transhumanist organizations signify that it is lagging in forward-thinking? That it hasn’t grasped the visionary potential of transhumanist philosophy? That it is years behind the West in creating a world that significantly enhances the human species?

No. Quite the inverse, in my research-substantiated opinion.

This essay will assert and seek to prove that East Asia is actually the present Leader in “Transhumanist” ideas and on-the-ground implementation. East Asia will also, in the future, IMO, increasingly guide the rest of the (more backward) planet with its innovative, forward-friendly success.

Here’s a list of “transhumanist” categories that East Asia is triumphant in:

Elevated Brain Power - Empowering human intelligence / mental ability is a preeminent transhumanist goal. To be “superhuman” necessitates that a person is, of course, “supersmart.” Every transhumanist poll, like the Terasem Survey I conducted, also indicates that “increased intelligence” is one of the two most desired goals of transhumanists (the other is longevity). Now, let’s examine which nations have achieved the highest intelligence (IQ) per capita. Here’s the Top 12, according to statisticbrain.com:

1. Hong Kong 107 IQ

2. South Korea 106 IQ

3. Japan 105 IQ

4. Taiwan 104 IQ

5. Singapore 103 IQ

6. Austria 102 IQ

6. Germany 102 IQ

6. Italy 102 IQ

6. Netherlands 102 IQ

10. Sweden 101 IQ

10. Switzerland 101 IQ

11. Belgium 100 IQ

12. China 100 IQ

The Top 5 are all East Asian nations. Although China, with its 1.3 billion population, is “only” #12, it is still far ahead of the USA - #19 with 98 IQ.

Longevity - Living a radically long life, i.e., eliminating death via attaining “immortality”, is perhaps the primary goal of transhumanists. The attainment of this accomplishment will most realistically be accomplished in small bite-sized increments of time. What nations are presently leading in life extension? Who is most effectively chipping away at the power of death?

1. Monaco 89.63 years

2. Macau 84.46

3. Japan 84.19

4. Singapore 84.07

5. San Marino 83.12

6. Andorra 82.58

7. Guerney 82.32

8. Switzerland 82.28

9. Hong Kong 82.20

10. Australia 81.98

East Asian zones take 3 of the top 4 slots here, and 4 of the top 10. (Admittedly, China and South Korea are far behind). The most significant statistic is Japan’s high-ranking, because it’s population of 127 million is approximately 4X greater than all the other nations on the list, combined. Japanese are generally recognized as the longest-living people, with extremely healthy senior citizens that routinely do amazing feats, like the recent 80-year-old Yuichiro Miura who climbed Mount Everest.

Education - Training learners in fields that are required for technological innovation must be regarded as a transhumanist goal. Nations that best educate their children to contribute positively to “enhancing” humanity need to be applauded for their valuable schools. So.. what nations are presently producing the best-educated youngsters? Who will contribute “Human Capital”? What nations are preparing kids that out-compete all others in international tests? Below is the Top 12 ranking for PISA (Program for International Student Assessment)

Math

1. China: Shanghai 600

2. Singapore 562

3. Hong Kong 555

4. Korea 546

5. Chinese Taipei 543

6. Finland 541

7. Liechtenstein 536

8. Switzerland 534

9. Japan 529

10. Canada 527

11. Netherlands 526

12. China: Macao 525

Science

1. China: Shanghai 575

2. Finland 554

3. Hong Kong 549

4. Singapore 542

5. Japan 539

6. Korea 538

7. New Zealand 532

8. Canada 529

9. Estonia 528

10. Australia 527

11. Netherlands 522

12. Chinese Taipei 520

East Asian nations clearly dominate in this category, as they did in the “Elevated Brain Power” (Intelligence) rankings. The results are even more skewed when one considers that the Western competitors generally have minuscule populations - Finland (5.4 million), Estonia (1.34 million), Liechtenstein (36,304).

Per Capita Income via “Human Capital”

The ability to generate economic wealth via one’s intelligence should also be regarded as a “transhumanist” value. This characteristic has been defined as “human capital.” Many regions of the world are wealthy due to exploitation of local natural resources, such as mineral deposits, timber, fertile agricultural land, oil-and-gas. Getting rich doing that is just “lucky” - far more impressive is the generation of wealth solely via one’s ability to create, invent, innovate, discover and lead.

What nations are world leaders in “Human Capital” ? Unquestionably, we’re back to admiring East Asia. Many regions here - Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan - are significantly lacking in natural resources. Their primary method of income is simply their own well-educated, hard-working population.

Take a look at the chart below - it is a forecast - an estimate of the leading nations in the world in Per Capita Income in 2050.

1. Singapore 137,710

2. Hong Kong 116,639

3. Taiwan 114,093

4. South Korea 107,752

5. USA 100,802

6. Saudi Arabia 98,311

7. Canada 96,375

8. UK 91,130

9. Switzerland 90,956

10. Austria 90,158

If you think 2050 is too far away to be relevant, please note that Singapore is already #1 - it has passed oil-rich Norway.

The McKinsey report that produced the forecast, states that, “It is not hyperbole to say we are observing the mostsignificant shift in the earth’s economic centre of gravity in history.”

Another report, by Citigroup/Knight Frank, predicts “nearly half of the world’s economic output—49 per cent—will be in Asia by 2050. Today it is at 27 per cent. Europe and North America’s share, currently at a combined 41 per cent, will fall to a mere 18 per cent by 2050.”

​Scientific Leadership

Transhumanism’s goals need to be guided by leaders who are well-educated and scientifically-literate. Does the West fit this description? Decidedly not.

Out of 44 Presidents in the United States, only one of them received a PhD (Woodrow Wilson, in history and political science). Additionally, only one President - Herbert Hoover - had a science / engineering background. The bulk of USA executive leaders have been lawyers or soldiers.

Meanwhile, in contrast, East Asia is presently guided by leaders who are far more scientifically-trained than their Western counterparts. For example, the behemoth nation of China has a President (Hu Jintao) has a degree in Hydraulic Engineering, the Premier (Wen Jiabao) has an advanced graduate degree in Hydraulic Engineering, and eight of the top nine top officials in China are engineers.

Want more? The current President of Singapore, Tony Tan has a Master’s in Science from MIT in operations research, and a PhD from the University of Adelaide in Applied Mathematics. In South Korea, Park Geun-hye, the first woman elected President, earned her degree in electronic engineering.

Tech-Savvy Populace, Innovators & Investors

The ability of a population to be “early-adaptors”, “tech-literate”, and financially supportive of new research and development is a decidedly transhumanist requirement. In multiple areas of this category, East Asians are also either in-the-lead, or highly competitive. Here’s numerous stats with links:

China leads the world in patent filings

Japan leads in patents granted

East Asia leads in “business funding”

Three East Asian nations are ranked in the Top 7 in Bloomberg’s list of “Most Innovative Nations.” (South Korea #2, Japan #6, Singapore #7)

Singapore is ranked #1 as best country in which to run a business

Japan leads the robotic industry. Hot on it’s mechanical heels are China and South Korea.

China is the “leading nation in the artificial intelligence research field in terms of the number of publications”

China is “soaring ahead in nanotechnology”

Taiwan “Well-placed to be a Biotechnology Leader”

My Conclusion

It seems clear to me that the future, technologically and economically, is rapidly shifting to East Asia. But it doesn’t seem like transhumanists are cognizant of this.

There are occasional exceptions. Ben Goertzel has written about East Asia in essays such as The Chinese Singularity and A Samsung Robot in Every Home by 2020? and he organized a Humanity+ transhumanist conference in Hong Kong. I’ve written about East Asia for Hplus in my essay The Next Global Superpower Is… Korea? and for IEET in the article “Why is “Confucian Culture so Wildly Successful?” Additionally, there have been 2 articles written about Japanese “robot butt-cheeks”… here and here but very little other coverage of anything else East Asian.

What’s my gripe?

I believe transhumanists, and the West in general, need to wake up and examine the East Asian phenomenon with open eyes. In doing so, we might face realities that are jarring, uncomfortable. For example: East Asian success was NOT gained entirely via Western-style democracies. China and Singapore, for example, had authoritarian, one-party governments - defined, IMO, as “Intelliarchies” or Plato’s “Rule By The Wise” systems. Should we consider: is Western-style democracy, with its huge impediments caused by bickering two-party and multi-party systems, and its corruption-via-corporate-billionaires - absolutely the “perfect” form of government? Does East Asia offer any solutions?

I believe Transhumanism needs to acknowledge, respect, and educate itself on East Asian accomplishments, and what-seems-to-be-inevitable East Asian future leadership. If Transhumanism retains it’s blinkered, Western-centric POV, it runs the risk of looking xenophobic, ignorant, and irrelevant.

Cryonics, perhaps ironically, is the main transhumanist technology that presently out-paces East Asia… but will the healthiest way to “thaw-out” be discovered via superior East Asian scientists?

Abstract
The nanotechnology has become a billionaire industry with multiple potential applications on human beings; however, experimentation in humans is high risk, for that reason, the transnational nanotechnology companies would be resorting to criminal methods like the organized crime to achieve that purpose. Thus, mafias of nanotechnology, “nanomafias”, would being created, mainly in Latin America, which would be multiplying vertiginously due to several factors like the ignorance in society regarding the use of nanotechnology as criminal weapon, the “invisibility” of this mafia for being used as its tool, the wifi, its economic power, the extortion with the Brain net, the silence and participation of the press and the health unions, the media disinformation campaign, its world interconnection, being an organized crime and the possible participation of authorities of the national police, the prosecutor's office and the judiciary, and the intelligence services. Nanomafia aims to become the greatest organized crime network in the world, therefore, the world society shall know, be alert and report the crimes committed by this nanomafia.

Keywords: nanotechnology, internet, interface brain-machine, crime, latin america

Introduction
The nanotechnology is the science, engineering and technology that are developed to nano-scale, around 1 to 100 nanometers. One of nanotechnology main applications is the nanobots, machines that can construct and handle objects at an atomic level and that are capable of moving through the circulatory system.1

The nanotechnology has become a billionaire industry and since it has multiple potential applications in human beings, there is a great interest in human experimentation. However, the nanotechnology acts at atomic level and for that reason the experimentation in humans is high risk, which causes an evident lack of volunteers. Therefore, the transnational nanotechnology companies would be resorting to criminal methods to get human experimentation subjects; thus, they would be using violence, swindle, extortion and organized crime.2–4

Recent researches reveal evidences that the technological transnational companies, in illicit association with USA, European Community and China governments and the corrupt Latin American governments, have created an organization that is developing mainly in Latin America a secret, forced and illicit neuroscientific human experimentation with invasive neurotechnology, brain nanobots, microchips and implants to execute neuroscientific projects,2–5 which can have even led scientists to win Medicine Nobel Prizes6 based on this illicit human experimentation at the expense of Latin Americans' health.

The main potential harmful effects caused by this illicit human experimentation with nanobots in society include:

Mind control,7,8 memory deletion, torture, permanent espionage, theft of private information, extortion, sterilization, psychiatric disorders, suicide, and digital slavery.6

The mainly objectives of nanomafia are illicit enrichment, academic recognition, creation of human weapons, and the creation of a digital fascist society.

The evidences indicate that nanomafias would be interconnected forming an international network with a mega project whose purpose is to create a digital fascist society, an oligarchy that rules the rest of world citizens who will carry nanobots and will be digital slaves, a human robotisation of the society at the service of a millionaire elite.

The digital fascist project is global; the objective would be to control the whole planet using microchips in human beings, animals and things.

“The Internet of Things” and “the driverless car” really have as purpose the fascist control of things. In men, the "digital slave" (human robot) project has different components: the mind control, permanent espionage with the Brain net, elimination of the emotions, living in a virtual reality, memory deletion and elimination of sexuality.

The different kind of projects developed with nanobots has a common pattern: they are developed by telemetry, by wifi, they do not have physical form, and they are intangible. Really, nanomafia is the mafia of wifi, the “ghost mafia”, which makes almost impossible to report it. The torture researchers and the criminals know that “the best torture” is the one that leaves no marks since it cannot be reported. If the victim of tortures by wifi reports it, he/she can be unjustifiably considered as a person with psychiatric problems or a slanderer, for that reason, the crime uses wifi as secret torture weapon (Figures 1) (Figure 2).

Regarding the criminal methods that nanomafia uses, the swindle is one of the most common methods and the main types include the deceptive promotion, the intellectual camouflages or the humanitarian pseudo-aid.

The deceptive promotion is one of the most popular, it promotes the use of nanobots as a futurist scientific prediction and a benefit to the society, hiding the health risk and its true uses against society; thus, for example, transnational companies scientists state the following regarding the brain nanobots:

“With nanorobots in our brains we will be like Gods”9

“With nanobots we will be able to load the French language in the bloodstream of our brain” 10

However, these affirmations that, evidently, induce the ordinary citizen to use brain nanobots do not have strongest scientific evidence, and the most important is that these affirmations hide the harmful effect of brain nanobots.

In order to convince the citizens of voluntarily accepting being "digital slaves" of the nanomafias, transnational companies, economic powers and media magnates, a series of intellectual camouflages have been created and there is a whole terminology, created or already existing, that is being manipulated to promote the illicit uses of this nanotechnology, a terminology that could be called a “swindle dictionary”.

Thus, for promotion of memory deletion is “unlearn to learn”; for convincing of the use of brain nanobots is “the biological innovation” (innovation)11 and thus, with these implants, being "excellent" human beings (excellence), having more creativity (“creativity") a better attitude (“attitude”) and being evolved human beings( “evolution”) ; for accepting the permanent espionage with the Brain net is “connect”, “the privacy is out” “knowledge society”, “divergent thinking”, “lateral thinking”, “observatories”,“transparency”, “hiving thought”, “brainstorming”, “disruptive technology, “mindfacture”,12 “Smart-city”, “brain circulation”; for convincing a person of being a cyborg (creative destruction); for forcing the student to use the Brain net as academic tool are currently being developed “neurospecialties” (neurolaw, neuromanagement, neuroeducation, etc.); for living in the virtual reality is “live the experience…..13”; for promoting to live without sexuality is “gender”;14 for living in a digital ghetto is “community”; for accepting being a digital slave is the “Milleniums”;15 and finally for spying the poor (social responsibility); thus, the transnational companies will make the citizens believe that they live in a happy world without knowing that they are digital slaves, slaves not forced by a totalitarian dictatorship but by the mass consent made by the media.

There are several evidences that indicate that the social responsibility is another of the camouflages organized by this nanomafia, due to the strong and sudden interest of the companies in developing “social responsibility” projects with a big-money advertising that indicates that it is a business rather than a humanitarian aid. One of the companies is Fox which is suspected of being using this camouflage. Fox is one of social responsibility promoters,16 according to recent researches, that are making TV shows of zombies using mind control experiments with brain nanobots.7 The social Responsibility is promoted by prestigious institutions like the United Nations and is recruiting university youth as its main operators swindling them in a majority of cases. The use of transhumanist terminology called the “social innovation” by the social Responsibility organizers and the clichés that promote the personal surveillance as “The eye we all have set begins to see” lead to suspect that the social Responsibility would really seeks to develop the espionage with the Brain net in poor zones. The social responsibility that is demanded as mandatory course in Latin American universities like the Universidad Nacional Mayor de San Marcos, the oldest of South America, would seek to swindle poor populations in order to transform these towns in “communities”, really future ghettos of digital slavery, where they will be permanently spied and mentally controlled with the Brain net, their memories will be deleted and their sexual lives will be filmed and commercialized; the residents of these communities will live in a virtual reality. In short, the residents of these poor communities will be human slaves at the service of the transnational companies and nanomafias.

One of the most perverse objectives of this mafia, the mind control, turning a person into an animal, machine or slave, would also be being promoted subliminally through intellectual swindles like the “emotional intelligence”, the so-called “intelligent control of emotions”, seeking that the society in the future accepts the use of nanobots under the argument of emotions self-control hiding that their mind will not really be auto-controlled but they will lose their control, since the person with nanobots could be controlled and spied through telemetry used by nanomafias or intelligence centrals; their brain and body will actually be under mind control by others.

The actions of this nanotechnology mafia are facilitated because nanobots can be administered in foods and drinks, being one of the main ones the alcohol drinks like beer since it depresses the individual's central nervous system and he loses his self-control and therefore, it facilitates mind control by others via brain nanobots; for this reason, the beer is ideal to administer brain nanobots.

The illicit use of nanotechnology based on secret and forced human experiments would be giving rise to an exclusive corrupt circle of “new millionaires”: professors of medicine, health unions, doctors, nurses, technicians, hospital managers, physicists, journalists, publishers of scientific magazines, librarians, engineers, politicians, professors, policemen, prosecutors, judges, the military, university students and even school students who illicitly become rich at the expense of their victims' health and honor.

The illicit nanotechnology has also allowed appearing a new kind of criminals, operators that could be called “nano-hired killers" or “nano-torturers”, those responsible for the "dirty work" of nanomafia, group mainly conformed by journalists, university students, nurses and illegal inmigrants as many venezuelans in Peru, who would be responsible for performing several works including: selection of the victim, to choose “the person of interest”, person who can contribute with some benefit to the nanomafia; intoxication of the victim with nanobots through food, drinks or pills or his/her kidnapping to install them brain implants; editing, selection and commercialization of mind videos obtained with the daily espionage using the Brain net, mind torture, victim torture disclosing his/her privacy information and espionage of dreams; obtaining information from the dreams with the Brain net for extortion; creation of pseudo-diseases blocking the function of organs by telemetry to then extort the victim with "the cure".

Recent researches alert on the development of nanomafias in Latin America, mainly in Peru.6,4 The main suspicious ones include the hospitals of ESSALUD, company that, in 2009, would have started a criminal nanotechnology organization during the administration of Fernando Barrios Ipenza, one of transhumanism sponsors in Peruvian universities in association with European and US universities and the main Peruvian media.6 Barrios would continue developing nanomafias in the provinces of Peru, mainly in Huancayo, city where he was mayor.

These mafias of nanotechnology would be developing dramatically due to the following factors:

The ignorance in society regarding the use of nanotechnology as common crime, organized crime, state terrorism and cyberwar weapon.
The “invisibility of this mafia” because they have wifi as their main weapon and therefore is almost impossible to report it.
The economic and political power of this mafia. The main organizers include the transnational companies with more economic power like Google, Facebook and Intel and the governments of countries like China, United States, the European Community and the Russian Federation and especially, the US Army through the DARPA (Figure 3).

The extortion to the victims of nanomafia using new products developed with the nanotechnology like the Brain net. The Brain net allows obtaining the so-called “mind videos”, obtaining a person's thoughts in form of videos that can be transmitted to cell phones. Really, the Brain net aims to be the most powerful extortion weapon of the common crime, the organized crime, state terrorism and cyberwar.
The silence and participation of the press. Recent publications give evidences that owners of mass media and their extensive network of journalists in the world are the organizers of this mafia of nanotechnology4–7 since the main uses of nanobots on humans are projects of telecommunications like the Brain net, a person's permanent espionage by telemetry.
The media disinformation campaign that presents the mind control and the Brain net as a fiction or myth,17 thus, the society is informed about nanotechnology as a crime only in science fiction TV series, which leads to consider the crime incredible.
The silence and participation of unions
In Latin America, the health unions participate in multiple street protests, however, it is remarkable their silence in relation to the multiple researches that report forced human experimentation with nanobots in Latin American hospitals,5–7 which would reflect their participation in this mafia. In Peru, the Federación Centro Unión de Trabajadores known by its initials "CUT” from the Social Health Insurance (ESSALUD for its initials in Spanish) comprises 18,000 workers. In spite of its large number, which makes it almost impossible that their members do not know nanomafias, surprisingly “CUT” an health union has not denounced illicit nanotechnology (Figure 4) (Figure 5).

The nanomafia aims to be an interconnected worldwide network. One of its main camouflages would be the Millennium project, created, according to its promoters, the United Nations, to develop a “global intelligence”, therefore, it forms the “nodes” in different countries; this would actually be to develop the Brain net worldwide.

Alan García, considered one of the most corrupt politicians in Peru,18 surprisingly, was the person chosen by the United Nations to develop the Peru Node of the Millennium Project and to advise the RIBER Group, the Latin-American branch of this project. Garcia’s corruption fame and his relations with Fernando Barrios lead to suspect that Alan García would be developing the Brain net in all Latin America.

The nanomafia is an organized crime. In contrast to a band in which a group of people meets to commit a single crime, the organized crime organizations are created to commit crimes continuously, at long term; the organized crime is “the crime company”, for that reason, to achieve that purpose, one of the main key objectives is to include into it the authorities of the national police, the prosecutor's office and the judiciary,19 this makes the success of the criminal organization viable; it explains why the organized crime develops its actions with total impunity and it would explain why the nanomafia, a form of organized crime, has not been reported by any prosecutor's office in the world (Figure 6).

It is also evident that, given the great extension that the nanomafias can have in the world and the large amount of information that institutions like the world intelligence services as CIA or MOSSAD and police institutions like the FBI and the INTERPOL have, these institutions would know the nanomafia but instead of report it they hide it and participate in its crimes. Thus, for example, neither the FBI, the CIA, the MOSSAD or the INTERPOL, or any intelligence service in the world have reported the main nanomafia weapon, the Brain net, and the massive espionage that would be carried out in the world, on the citizens mainly on young women obtaining their sexual life.

It is necessary to emphasize that the criminal activity of this nanomafia, “the ghost mafia”, “the wifi mafia”, must be known by the society in all areas because it can affect any society sector and for the power of its weapons like the Brain net. The magnitude of this mafia can only be compared to that of drug trafficking. There actually are many similarities between the drug trafficking and this “nanotrafficking” organized by nanomafias, although the main crime element is different, in the former it is the coca leaf and in the latter it is the brain nanobot, both can damage the mental health, both are billionaries industries that infiltrate and corrupt all the institutions, however, unlike the drug trafficking that is reported by mass media in its headlines, in the nanotrafficking the press is its main member and for that reason it hides it, and it remains unknown to most of society that even considers it fiction due to the own press disinformation campaign that presents the crime as fiction.

Conclusion
The nanotechnology has become a billionarie industry with multiple potential applications on human beings, which has leaded to create a mafia of nanotechnology to be developed on human beings. A “nanomafia” that becomes rich with the secret and forced use of nanotechnology on human beings at the expense of their health, privacy and honor. The world society shall know, be alert and report the crimes committed by this nanomafia, mafia that aims to become the greatest organized crime network in the world.

Israel’s Value to TransHumanism

Hank Pellissier
By Hank Pellissier
H+ Magazine

Posted: Aug 22, 2010

Imagine this sci-fi scenario: A small tribe with unique literature, customs and myths believes they’ve been “chosen” for a glorious destiny. But they’re driven out of their native land, forced to wander the globe for aeons, persecuted and annihilated, until they’re impelled by a utopian novel to return to their homeland. They name their new city after the inspirational book and their country becomes a technological powerhouse… but still, they’re surrounded by enemies. They wage eternal war, they hover between hope and apocalypse”¦ their contributions to humanity are astounding but they continue to fear total extinction. Familiar? Of course. I’ve described Israel and the Jews.

A four-millennium saga with floods, burning bushes, diasporas, miracles, massacres, temples, pogroms, holocausts, and 180+ brainy Jews receiving Nobel Prizes - 22% of the total awards garnered by only .25% of the population. Today’s Israel - a dynamic nano-nation tinier than New Jersey in size and numbers - is imagination made concrete, the material manifestation of Theodor Herzl’s futuristic, Zion-inspiring 1902 book Altneuland (translated as “The Old New Land” in English, and “Tel Aviv” in the Hebrew translation by Nalum Sokolov.)
Is Israel valuable to Transhumanism? Yes. Even though most Israelis worry about surviving next week and regard contemplation of the year 2025 as impractical because they might be “pushed into the sea” by then. Yes. Even though membership in the Israeli Humanity Plus chapter is only 50-100 with twenty regular attendees. Yes, Israel is a crucial player in H+ and here’s why:

Silicon Wadi

In 1998 Newsweek named Tel Aviv as one of the Top Ten technologically influential cities in the world.Wired and The Economist rated Israel’s high tech region second only to Silicon Valley. “Silicon Wadi” - an area half the size of its California sibling - has over 3,850 startups with 120 companies on NASDAQ, the largest number outside the USA. Israel’s tech success is aided by low-rate government loans for development - Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Donald Trump and numerous global business surveys have all praised Israel’s economic environment. Another contributing factor: well-educated immigrants who arrived from the Soviet Union in the 1990’s, and abundant local grads from esteemed institutes such as Hebrew University, The Technion, Tel Aviv University and Weizman Institute of Science.

Consider this commendable data: The first cell phones were developed at the Israeli branch of Motorola. The majority of Windows NT and XP operating systems were developed by Microsoft Israel. Pentium MMX chip technology was designed at the Israeli Intel. Both the Pentium 4 and Centrino processors were designed by Israelis. Dov Moran, an Israeli, invented the flash disk. Voice mail technology? Israel. AOL Instant Messenger? Israel. Highest percentage of home computers in the world? Israel. Highest ratio of university degrees? Israel. Highest per capita number of scientists and technicians in the workplace? Israel. (145 per 10,000 - second is USA with 85). Techno-progressive President Shimon Peres recently declared, “the future is in nanotechnology.” Israeli universities advance research in cutting edge fields like cognitive neuroscience, cellomics, telomerase, etc. etc.

 

Petri Dish for Progress

On November 9, 2009, Ray Kurzweil was a guest at the Israeli Presidential Conference: Facing Tomorrow. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu credited Kurzweil for inspiring his “Renewable Energy Initiative” that seeks to replace all fossil fuel with renewable resources - primarily solar - in the next ten years. Kurzweil discussed reverse-engineering the brain with President Peres. The American futurist also proposed using nanotech to solve energy and environmental issues, and he suggested building an entrepreneurial technology incubator that would be shared collaboratively by both Israelis and Palestinians. Kurzweil has the ears of open-minded Israeli leadership. Imagine the impact if (when) his ideas are successfully enacted. Israel’s small size and tech chutzpah make it an ideal laboratory for scientific progress.

Robotics

Israel has on-going military needs and a small population (5.6 million Jews, 1.9 million Arabs). It has responded to this challenge by becoming a world leader in robotic weaponry. In 1981 it successfully utilized its first unmanned aircraft. Since then, it has added unmanned speedboats, unmanned ground vehicles, border guard robo-snipers, camouflaged robot snakes, and a nine-inch tall VIPeR ‘bot that climbs stairs, sniffs for explosives, disarms bombs with water spray, heaves grenades, and shoots hostiles with a mini Uzi submachine gun. Israel’s goal is to robotize one-third of its military machinery in the next 10-15 years. There’s also been non-violent success. Israeli scientists co-developed (with Europeans) the “SmartHand” (a robotic prosthetic hand), and they’ve recently invented a bionic retina implant, “Bio Retina.”

Artificial Intelligence: Michael Vassar of SIAI (Singularity Institute for Artificial Intelligence) notified me via email that “the main Israelis that pursued work vital to our core mission are Daniel Kahneman and Amos Tversky… and the computer scientist Judea Pearl for his development of Bayes Nets.” Kahneman (2002 Nobel Prize winner for his Prospect Theory) was born in Tel Aviv. Tversky was born in Haifa. Their collaboration on “Judgment Under Uncertainty: Heuristics and Biases” is a seminal work in the Artificial Intelligence field. Singularity essays like Eliezer Yudkowsky’s “Cognitive biases potentially affecting judgment of global risks” are deeply indebted to the Israeli psychologists. Judea Pearl - computer scientist and philosopher - is also recognized as a giant in the field of artificial intelligence. He’s a pioneer in the probabilistic approach to AI and the father of slain journalist Daniel Pearl.

 

Stem Cell Research

Israel leads the world in stem cell research papers per capita. On April 9, 2010, scientists at Hadassah Hospital achieved a crucial breakthrough. They demonstrated a new technique that can mass produce huge quantities of fetal stem cells. Two members of the Israeli Humanity+ chapter are highly knowledgeable in stem cell research: bio-scientist Dr. Danny Belkin and bio-ethicist Dr. Frida Fuchs Simonstein.

 

Environmental IQ

Israel aims to be the first nation with a national electric car network - they hope to have it fully operational by late 2011 (edging out Denmark). Its engineers are also developing hydrogen fuel. Israelis are world leaders in desalination and wastewater renewal. On World Water Day (March 22), the United Nations lauded Israel as the planet’s most efficient recycled water user. Tel Aviv University scientists also recently (04/22/10) discovered that ultra-violet nanoscale wavelengths are superior to chlorine for cleaning tap water. Israelis have long been leaders in solar energy technology and they export their expertise around the world. One company just signed a deal to build solar energy farms in California and Nevada. Israel is also unique in the world because every year its population of trees increases.

Science Fiction

Israel has been described as “the birthplace of science fiction.” For chariots in the sky, eco-cataclysms, invisible voices, and other paranormality, check out the Torah. Want a hero traveling through space, searching for the secrets of creation? Examine the apocryphal books of Enoch, circa 300 B.C. In contemporary Israel, “political science fiction” dominates the genre, with the vast majority of successful books using the homeland as a setting. A utopian-intended society tottering on the edge of annihilation is obviously ideal for SF. A partial list of important authors would include Pesakh Amnuel, David Avidan, Dan Zalka, Etgar Keret, Orly Castel-Bloom, Gail Hareven, and Addy Zemach.

Futurist Philosophy

Mordechai Nessayahu’s “Cosmotism” depicts a future in which Israel saves humanity from eco-disasters and nuclear annihilation. Also influential as a Labor Party stalwart, Nessyahu motivated Yitzak Rabin and Shimon Peres to pursue the Oslo Accords peace plan. Shimon Peres published his own visions in “A New Beginning.” He imagines an improved Israel via peace and an information revolution. Equally optimistic is Yigal Arica’s “What’s in the Future?” Niv Ahituv’s “A World Without Secrets” presents a totally transparent world, where all information about everyone is available to everyone.

Tzvi Bisk - author of Futurizing the Jews (co-written with Moshe Dror) and The Optimistic Jew - predicts that Israel will become a model superpower. He says that it will be a “light unto nations,” with one of the world’s highest scientific, cultural, social and economic standards. He also envisions a cyber-Israel, connecting global communities to enlarge the “Jewish homeland.” Recent events have perhaps dampened Bisk’s positivity. In an email to me he remarked, “you may have noticed from media reports we in the Middle East have not yet gotten the humanist thing right yet, let alone the transhumanist thing.”

Young Bright Lights:

Ilia Stambler is a primary organizer of the nine transhumanist seminars in Israel. He’s a 38-year-old PhD candidate at Bar Ilan University, writing a dissertation on “The History of Life Extensionism in the 20th Century.” He’s also an intern at IEET (Institute of Ethics and Emerging Technologies). Stambler notified me via email that Israeli transhumanists are primarily focused on life extension, with the Singularity ranking second in interest. He also reports that “futuristic visions are often underplayed here in view of the more immediate concerns.”
Adi Berman is only 19 years old, but Aubrey de Grey has praised her as “exceptionally bright and intelligent.” A singer/songwriter with her tunes on MySpace, she’s a respected writer on Imminist.org forums. Her emails to me were pithy: “Israelis hope that Israel has a future.” Discussing radical life extension, she insists, “Life’s irrelevant if death overcomes us… it’s natural that we seek unlimited life spans, every organism tries to survive… each having a natural tool to help them: venom, speed, strength, camoflage, etc… we have a BRAIN, a highly developed one, that is our natural tool to survive….”

Defense & Friends:

Israel is a world leader in satellite technology, often used in spying on hostile neighbors. Israel also has nuclear weapons - an estimated 75-200 warheads. It’s got the fourth largest air force in the world and the most impenetrable flight security. Israel’s “best friend” is not the United States, it’s India - a close economic and military ally, and a collaborator on space research. Israel’s also (usually) cozy with China, Russia, Germany and Mexico.

Conclusion

In my opinion, Israel (like South Korea) will be a tiny giant in the world of the future. Both nations have risen triumphantly from near-nothingness in the last sixty years. Although Israel is miniscule and threatened by opposition, it has used this challenge as motivation for advancement. Israel’s diminutive size and gargantuan progress is reminiscent of the small vibrant city states of history, such as classical Athens (rivaled by Sparta, Thebes and Corinth), medieval Florence (opposed by Venice, Milan, Genoa, Pisa and Siena), the Warring States of China (forward leaps in philosophy, metallurgy, government, law and military strategy), Swahili seaports (Mombasa, Malindi, Kilwa, Sofala, Zanzibar, and Mogadishu competed economically as their cosmopolitan cultures blossomed), plus myriad other mighty dwarfs that performed phenomenally under pressure.
I believe that Israel’s future will be as plucky as David with his technologically superior sling. All humanity can benefit from Israeli research and inventiveness as our planet progresses towards a metaphoric “land of milk and honey.”

Agreed, Nietzsche wrote that the root of antisemitism is jealousy, “Jews have brains and money”, he wrote. Unfortunately, Israel is heavily outnumbered, and hated to a greater or lesser extent not only in every nation outside Israel but also by a minority of Israeli citizens. BTW, the latest agreement for Israeli- Palestinian peacetalks is to maneuver & buy time.

The following corrections are not intended to take away from this wonderful essay:

—“But they’re driven out of their native land, ... to return to their homeland. They name their new city after the inspirational book”

Did you mean country instead of city? Also, what city or country was named after the word “Torah”?

—“and “Tel Aviv” in the Hebrew translation by Nalum Sokolov.)

That should say “Nahum.”

I think this is a fantastic article as long as the reader does not read too much into politics. Indeed, the Jewish people, as an ethnicity, suffered greatly in the lands of the majority through out history—that ethnic memory of hardship probably helped to shape a culture that cultivates hardwork, ingenuity into the young jewish child.

But the Jewish people is not a monolithic entity. There are a lot of Jews who are opposed to Israel’s policies. Einstein, along with many other Jewish luminaries were non-religious and did not identify with zionism, Jewish superstitions, etc.

One of the most passionate article I’ve read regarding the Israel-palestinian issue was written by a Jew who wrote compassionately for the cause of the Palestinians.(I could not find the article again, but I’ll post some links to articles of similar theme) To my mind, the Jews, who are wary of Israel as representative of the entire Jewish race, are not self-hating Jews, but Jews who are educated enough to look into the mirror and introspect. I"ll let u decide—

http://www.ajc.org/atf/cf/{42D75369-D582-4380-8395-D25925B85EAF}/PROGRESSIVE_JEWISH_THOUGHT.PDF

Never think of Israel as the place where a so-called monolithic Jewish race all dream to live in.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 22, 2010

this is Hank, the author - I did mean city, and I was referring to Tel Aviv, which I understand to mean “New Land” - the title of Herzl’s book. I am sorry that I apparently spelled Sokolov’s name wrong. Thanks for all yoru comments!

This following is a crazy idea; however as the physics professor would say, “your idea is crazy but not crazy enough to be valid”: Israel’s enemies have no intention of giving up their war, as the two ‘sides’ have been killing & maiming each others peoples for too long. There might very well be peace decades from now, yet with the increased quality and lower cost of weaponry the temptation for a settlement by terrorism and war is high. Since Germany created the situation as it is in 2010 (war would be ongoing in such a feudalistic region, but different from today), Germany could reserve a portion of its territory for qualified Israelis; that way Germany obtains gifted immigrants & its responsibility for the Holocaust is erased, while Israel isn’t as isolated—hemmed in.
But the above is fantastic, in the negative sense. War in the Mideast will go on until the older generation dies off.

To Jim of Davis CA.
1. Einstein was a Zionist—Ben Gurion proposed him to be the first President of Israel. Einstein declined making way for Chaim Weizzmann (another world famous scientist, in addition to being the individual who got the Balfour Declaration).
2. There are a lot of Israelis oppossed to Israeli policies. I am one of them. But I do so out of loyalty to certain Zionist principles not in opposition to Zionism—e.g. the settlements in the occupied territories are a bigger threat to Israel’s existence than the Iranian bomb.
3. ALL the major figures of Zionism were secular and called for separation of Synagogue and State—this list includes Herzl, Jabotinsky, Ben-Gurion and Weizzman.

To Hank:
1. Tel Aviv literally means “The Hill of Spring”—a play on the archeological term “Tel” which instead of revealing the past in Herzl’s book “The Old-New Land” reveals the future—not the winter of past Jewish suffering but the spring of future Jewish hope.
2. The book describes an attitude towards the Arab population which would cause much of the current Israeli rightwing to describe Herzl as a post-Zionist.
3. Nahum Sokolow’s great, great grand niece was just denied the right to marry in Israel because she could not proove she was Jewish (the testimony of 4 Conservative Rabbis was not Kosher enough).
4. Israel is both Space Age (the achievments you cite) and Dark Ages (the settlers and the Orthodox Rabbinate). It is both a constitutional state (unwritten constitutionalism) and a theocratic state (like England—unwritten constitution and a State Church of which the Queen—the head of State). Unlike England we have not emasculated the real power of religion.
5. The question is will Space Age Israel (Zionism) defeat Dark Age Israel or vice versa

This is a great article! I would say its positive outlook, focusing on high technology, is rather unique. I think such an outlook is vital for the promotion of peace in our region. As someone living in Israel, I can only agree in this regard with one of our prominent industrialists Stef Wertheimer, who believes that strengthening high-tech in Israel and developing joint regional high-tech projects is the true road to peace. People, particularly here, too often get caught in immediate politics, forgetting to look just a bit further into the future. And cooperatively developed and shared high technology, imho, is the way of the future.

http://www.iesiusa.com/index.php/2010/08/11/stef-wertheimers-tech-road-to-mideast-peace/

And indeed, the Israeli society or the Jewish people are far from being monolithic. And that’s an excellent thing. In fact, the ethnic diversity in Israel is one of the highest, including dozens of ethnic groups and immigrants from all corners of the world, each bringing and cross-fertilizing their cultures. In politics too, at one point we had some 40 parties running for Knesset, with often diametrically opposed agendas, particularly on the relations with our neighbors. And that is good too. The plurality of views has been a strong element in Jewish culture, since the Talmud, and may have contributed in no small measure to the development of science and technology. I must admit that the debates are often fierce. But one should also admit that disagreement with a certain policy can be by no means equated with “hatred” of the country, let alone of the entire people. Rather than a monolith, Israel may be seen as a central hub of Jewish culture.

And yes, the original title of Herzel’s book was “Alt-Neuland” (the old-new land). Herzel was actually hoping that we would be speaking German here, to strengthen the relations with the European community and with the Yiddish speaking communities worldwide. One of Herzel’s central mottos was “im tirzu, ein zo agada” in Heberw, or in the original “Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen” – If you want this, it will not be a fairy tale. One can hardly think of a better techno-progressive maxim.

> “Israel’s “best friend” is not the United States, it’s India — a close economic and military ally, and a collaborator on space research.”

Indeed, there was a poll: “The Foreign Ministry conducted a poll of 5,215 people from 13 countries described as “central” ones. The poll has found that the people of India are Israel’s best friends, at least among the larger powers: 58 percent of Indians surveyed said that they support Israel. 56 percent of U.S. citizens expressed support for Israel, as did 52 percent of Russians, 50 percent of Mexicans, 48 percent of Chinese and 39 percent of Italians.

Martin Fox, I think you read into the article what you wanted to read. I saw no “Jewish supremicism” here. However, I did see plenty of facts that I know you can’t refute.

Tsvi writes: “settlements in the occupied territories are a bigger threat to Israel’s existence than the Iranian bomb.”

Hank’s article was about facts and figures, not about unprovable assertions.

 

Kyle Munkittrick • Brooklyn, NY • Aug 23, 2010

Hank, Ilia,

How does one reconcile the closed nature of South Korean and Israeli society with progressive values associated with transhumanism? Immigration and integration into both societies is extremely difficult for outsiders.

Additionally, I find it startling that you would find the need to defend not only a country - which smacks of nationalism - but the Jewish people as well to a philosophy that is generally opposed to concepts of racial and national loyalty. It almost seems as if you are arguing to preserve a relic of WWII in the face of evidence that it is both unnecessary (your own statistics refute the need for a Jewish homeland) and philosophically backward (a nation-state centered around race and religion).

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 23, 2010

Kyle,
First of all I would like to quote Nick Bostrom’s “Transhumanist FAQ”:

“It is unclear why anybody who has a lot of plastic surgery or a nomadic lifestyle is any
closer to becoming a posthuman than the rest of us; nor, of course, are such persons
necessarily more admirable or morally commendable than others. In fact, it is perfectly
possible to be a transhuman – or, for that matter, a transhumanist – and still embrace most
traditional values and principles of personal conduct.”

Indeed, in the world we live in, there are different cultures, traditions, and dares one say countries and peoples. And to ignore this fact, or even try to annihilate all cultural heritages, in favor of some ideal of a home-less, tradition-less, post-human being is, shall we say, rather impractical. It seems to be a much more profitable way to study various traditions and cultures, in order to increase cross-cultural insemination and cooperation. This can only lead to a greater and wider increase of knowledge and, as a consequence, improvement of technology for the benefit of all.

And on the specific point regarding “the closed nature of South Korean and Israeli society” where “Immigration and integration into both societies is extremely difficult for outsiders.” I am not sure what this thesis is based on. Israel is actually a country of immigrants (including myself). Even now, immigrants from virtually all countries of the world and of all colors of the skin represent the majority of the Israeli population. I am no expert on South Korea, but it seems, it is one of the most receptive and cooperative societies, particularly with regard to the exchange of knowledge.

 

Kyle Munkittrick • Brooklyn, NY • Aug 23, 2010

Ilia,

I was not merely citing transhumanism, but the technoprogressive movement. Progressives generally move away from national and ethnic loyalty. Israel’s very creation and continued existence as a Jewish state embodies both nationalism and ethnocentrism in a uniquely intense way.

“A nation of immigrants” is a preposterous statement when most of the immigrants are non-Israeli Jews who become citizens using the Law of Return. Furthermore, you don’t care about the immigrants, it’s on Jews and Israel. In fact, your focus is on Jews in general, with Israel as their avatar, as exemplified by your “180+ brainy Jews receiving Nobel Prizes — 22% of the total awards garnered by only .25% of the population” comment. Are all those Jews Israeli? No, of course not. Most are American and European nationals. Israel has had NINE Nobel laureates.

By viewing ethnic and religious Judaism as the same and then further lumping Jews and Israelis together, you are stripping each group of unique elements of their identities in order to shoehorn them into your ethnocentric/nationalist rhetoric. Your statistics are all correct, but your (and Hank’s) framing is abhorrent.

Israeli researchers and entrepreneurs current work in transhumanist technology is wonderful, but H+ doesn’t need Israel anymore than Phenomenology needs France.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 23, 2010

Kyle - Israel is an extraordinarily progressive nation, especially compared to its neighbors. For example, Israel is very gay-friendly, gays have long been accepted in its military and in society. In contrast, Palestinian gays are persecuted, jailed, tortured and often seek asylum in Israel. Kyle, I believe you are over-emphasizing the value of immigration and not recognizing the dangers. I am also constantly amazed at American gays and gay-friendly activists who protest for Palestinian causes, without realizing that they’re simultaneously supporting homophobia. Are you suggesting that an open-door immigration policy is a requirement in a progressive-transhumanist society? I respectfully disagree. If you do some research about the Middle East you will find that Israel is considerably more open than its neighbors. For example, the last Jews are soon leaving Yemen, and there are no churches in Saudi Arabia. Personally, I believe progressive nations should have immigration policies that allow new residents in, only if they’re in agreement with the progressive policies of the nation. To open the borders to narrow-minded bigots is to end up with spectacles like the Gay Pride March in Amsterdam getting heckled and threatened by fundamentalist immigrants.
In regards to the second part of your letter, I am: yes, quite comfortable defending a “nation” and I find your accusation of me as a “nationalist” naively anarchistic. Your definition of Israel as “philosophically backward” is also simplistic - Israel has a large atheist demographic - about 25-40% - if that is an important qualifier for transhumanism.

 

hank Pellissier • • Aug 23, 2010

Hi Kyle—Hank here again. I want to discuss two of your statements. You said “Progressives generally move away from national and ethnic loyalty” and “H+ doesn’t need Israel”—Personally, I don’t see anything destructive about admiring a nation’s achievements. If we regard nations as entities that exhibit policies and goals to the rest of the world, what is the harm in admiring them? I am inspired by Germany’s solar energy policy, South Korea’s urban designs, Denmark’s wind energy, Israel’s stem cell research and electric car network, etc., and I think H+ obviously needs the ideas of those nations more than it needs, say the ideas of Myamar or Sudan. You seem to have a personal loathing of the nation-state but I don’t see that as a transhumanist virtue. I also see nothing negative about “loyalty” - quite the opposite. The failure or success of neighborhoods, cities and nations is partly dependent on the loyalty and affection of its citizens. Are you advocating absolute indifference to one’s community? I don’t think so…

 

iPan • • Aug 23, 2010

When will people learn that ‘Jew’ (whatever that means) and ‘Israeli’ are not mutually inclusive terms?
I’m pretty sure the word ‘Jew’ is a derogatory word. If we are talking about the people of Judea, we would call them Judeans. ‘Jew’ is a racial slur, one that modern ‘Jews’ use in the same way that African Americans have adopted the n-word in their own culture (though no one else is allowed to use it).
People are opposed to the State of Israel, because it practices apartheid, it is colonial/imperialistic, and because their military is guilty of war crimes and crimes against humanity.
Not all Israeli’s are even Jewish (religiously), and not all Palestinians are Muslim. It isn’t about religion, really. It’s about the fact that white europeans colonized this land, evicting and destroying as they did it, after WWII.
The IDF RAPES women in Palestine. The IDF kills innocent people all the time. And they get the worlds consent, which is the sickening part.
Those who fire rockets at them from Palestine are no better. To be clear, I’m a pacifist, and I don’t condone killing or violence by anyone. But, I have more understanding for the impoverished Arabs of Palestine, who have been facing military oppression from an illegal occupation for a long time.

Jews and Muslims, in the past, have lived together in peace in Israel many times in history. There is nothing within their respective religions to make this impossible.
This isn’t about religion. It’s about white vs. arab, and that’s what makes me sick to my stomach.

The solution is integration, reparations for the Palestinians, and a one state solution (tear down the wall, don’t build it higher).

Here’s some irony:
If the Jews get Israel, shouldn’t we give America to the Amerinds?

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 23, 2010

Hank’s original posting can be found on H+: http://hplusmagazine.com/articles/politics/israel’s-value-transhumanism

If you read the comments you will find that the exact same BS flamewar started there as well.

To restate my comments, Hank’s error was attempting to link Israeli scientific achievements into it’s “Jewishness”, and attempting to make a case that those achievements were due to their ethnicity and religious beliefs instead of simply talking about how valuable those achievements were all by themselves.

I don’t support the current Israeli government. I can’t support Jewish “exceptionalism” under any form, be it social, political, or religious, because it is in no way different that the Nazi “Supreme Race”, the Neo Nazi “White Supremest”, or indeed any other form of racial or religious bigotry. The Historical Jews were willing to commit genocide time and again in the bible over this bigotry, and the current government is still suffering from that same overweening arrogance today, as recently demonstrated by attacking an unarmed civilian ship. (So sorry, but even if you try to claim they had “pipes and knives” an untrained civilian armed with such weapons is STILL no threat to a trained special forces operative)

Sad to say, the majority of the governments around Israel are just as bigoted, arrogant, and driven by religious zealotry as the worst elements in the Israeli government. It’s a tense no-win scenario until that religious hatred of each other can be ended. While Israel holds enormous potential to modernize and bring peace to the region, it’s never going to do so while religious hatreds control the governmental policies it follows.

Simply put, I agree with most of what Hank writes about. In this one, I think he tried a little too hard to be complimentary, and made some very bad errors in overgeneralization. Jews are NOT Israel. Not every Jew supports Israel. Not every Jew IS Israeli, and not every Israeli is a Jew. Is Israel doing some really nifty stuff? Hell yeah. But it’s not BECAUSE those scientists are JEWS, the two have no correlation.

People are people. The sooner we all realize that fact, and the sooner we stop promoting stereotypes of this sort, the better off we will all be.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 23, 2010

Kyle,

First, thanks for the accusations in “nationalism and ethnocentrism”. It reminds me a lot of the rhetoric employed towards the Jews in Stalinist Russia. In case they upheld tradition, they were branded as “nationalists”; and in case they moved away from tradition they were branded as “rootless cosmopolites” and “infiltrators.” The Jews just don’t seem to get a break whatever they say or do. The accusation in being a “closed society” also reminds a lot of the Medieval inquisitorial statements about the Jews being “secretive” and “closed to the outside world” and, as such, they need to be converted to the broader culture of Christianity as soon as possible. You seem to basically argue that there is no “need” for Israel and the Jewish people (as an identity) for the “techno-progressive movement.” The Israeli achievements are ok, but the fact that they were done in Israel bears no relevance. In the same manner you could discuss whether Buddhism needs India, or for that matter, whether democracy needs America. It might be more fruitful to recognize the diversity and uniqueness of particular social contexts and traditions, instead of deciding the “need” for cultures and nations.

And nobody is “lumping” anything together. As I have recurrently emphasized, the cultural and ideological diversity in Israel and in the Jewish society is wide. I have also emphasized the need for international cooperation, through and thanks to the recognition of diversity. I guess my main point is that cultural heritages need to be preserved, as any unique “pattern” whose loss is tragic.

Under the “law of return” you so despise, more than a million people came to Israel in less than ten years, spanning all races, Jews and non-Jews, mostly from disadvantaged parts of the world (about a 20% increase in the country population). Is there anyplace in the world that has a stronger international relief program? Imagine 50 million poverty-stricken people currently immigrating to the US, whatever their identity. That having being said, I personally do support further liberalization of the law of return, which makes me no less of an Israeli citizen.

I abhor any claims to national supremacy by whatever nation. But I think that the fact of the existence of some “brainy Jews” needs to be studied as an ethnographic phenomenon, bearing on the crucial question of “nature” vs. “nurture.” The fact that less Nobelists are produced in Israel seems to indicate the crucial role of the environment in shaping personal achievement. In the case of Jews, imho, this was often the result of prosecution and the need to assert themselves harder than anyone else. Would you imagine any other nation or country that would have to defend its very need of existence for the benefit of humanity?

@ Valkyrie Ice:

“Hank’s error was attempting to link Israeli scientific achievements into it’s “Jewishness”, and attempting to make a case that those achievements were due to their ethnicity and religious beliefs instead of simply talking about how valuable those achievements were all by themselves.”

Captures my sentiment well.

 

hank Pellissier • • Aug 23, 2010

I just finished writing another article about the black power movement in the 1960’s, and I am wondering if “progressive transhumanists” would have told Harry Edwards, Huey Newton, Muhammed Ali and Dick Gregory that they were being “ethnocentrist” in their struggle? I don’t think so.


 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 23, 2010

I would have, Hank.

Centrism of any type, be it ethnocentrism, religiocentrism, Nationalcentrism, gendercentrism, or culturalcentrism is WRONG.

Period. No exceptions, no, “its okay in this case”

I can’t walk down the street wearing a t shirt that proclaims “Great Moments in White History” without being labeled a racist. I can’t wear one saying “Great Moments in Aryan History” without being labeled a Nazi, or “Great Moments in Islamic History” without being labeled an Anti-Semite, or “Great Moments in Male History” without being a misogynist.

And yet millions upon millions of people see “Great Moments in BLACK history” and fail to see that it is EVERY BIT AS BIGOTED as all those other examples I gave.

It’s not justifiable for ANY side Hank. Hate takes TWO SIDES to exist. And it requires TAKING SIDES to continue.

People are people. We are all unique individuals, and NOT ONE OF US IS INHERENTLY “SPECIAL”.

I may be more intelligent than most of the people around me, but THAT DOES NOT GIVE ME ANY PRIVILEGES OVER THEM. I’m just a person. I may be bigger than 90% of the people around me, SO WHAT? I may be tall, blonde, blue eyed, and of germanic descent, AND IT IS COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS.

People are People. No-one has a right to “superiority” over anyone else, and no-one is “inferior” to another.

And that is the error you made in this article. You made a case for “specialness” that cannot be supported.

I am sorry Hank, but as admirable as the advances being made are, you turned an objective report into an advocacy piece of propaganda.

hank Pellissier • • Aug 23, 2010

for Kyle and Valkyrie—I am not a “cultural relativist” - I do not believe every culture offers an equal contribution to civilization or transhumanism, and I think most people secretly agree with me, even though they might be afraid of being called a racist or other horrible names. Every culture is a collection of memes, and those memes may or may not be beneficial to progress. That said, I am also a student of history, which reveals that Jews have contributed significantly to civilization in many places: Spain, Russia, Hungary, Hollywood, and now modern Israel. Do I think Israel is Jewish? Yes. Do I think Israel’s success is due to the fact that it is? Yes. Am I a Jew, or an Israeli? No, I am not. I just see facts in front of me that add up to obvious conclusions. This is surprisingly difficult to do if one’s mind is distracted by notions of political correctness.

 

postfuturist • • Aug 23, 2010

You can see the hatred in some of the above comments; the posters hide their antisemitism behind analytical objectivity. Today anyone can see how the Jewish people (we can’t write ‘Jews’ because such is not PC) are the universal scapegoats of the world.

haig • • Aug 24, 2010

I think the way this article was written does a huge disservice to the author’s thesis. I can agree with the idea that some cultures have norms and values that can either promote or inhibit progress as defined by transhumanists. I cannot, however, agree with the framing of this concept as one intrinsically specific to a particular people or nation-state. Tell us more about what these people did, not some ‘essence’ that these people contain or were given by ‘divine’ writ, that is just absurd. You may not have said it in so many words, but the tone of this article, especially the ridiculous opening paragraph describing the Zionist movement as a ‘sci-fi’ scenario and then actually equating it to the reality of Israel, takes away from the informative lesson about creating a culture of learning and progress.

I am also constantly amazed at American gays and gay-friendly activists who protest for Palestinian causes, without realizing that they’re simultaneously supporting homophobia.”

Opinions vary. Less privileged Israeli queers don’t necessarily find the society so welcoming. For example, consider Yossi’s take on the matter:

“It’s the center of Tel Aviv which is open for queers who have money and who are consumers or part of the system. It’s not open for poor queers who are coming from Jewish-oriental families, it’s not open for Palestinians, and it’s not open for religious queers. Israel can say one thing, but usually they act differently. The situation here is a lot like in the US, and you wouldn’t say the US is queer-friendly.”

(http://aaron.resist.ca/?q=node/33)

Rejecting Israeli imperialism in no way implies support for Palestinian homophobia. That’s a dangerous false dilemma.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 24, 2010

I believe one of the most common objections raised above against Hank’s article and against the whole Israeli issue was about the “intrinsic specificity” of the Jewish culture presumably opposed to the presumably global and presumably non-discriminating world culture. The work, it seems to me, is not about discrimination or segregation at all! Nowhere does the article say anything about transhumanism or progressivism as an “inherently” Jewish ethnic trait. It rather is about the adjustment of techno-progressive philosophy and action to particular national and social contexts and traditions. Also the article on South Korea seems to be a part of the broader project of studying (and not prescribing) such adjustments. It acquaints the wider (mainly American) readership with the different traditions and forms of adjustment. I believe these were actually the fist articles even to mention these countries and communities in relation to transhumanism. It is just a shame that even the mere mentioning of diverging national contexts evokes such a passionate, even aggressive and suppressive response: “How dares he ‘propagandize’ other ‘special’ cultures!”—Talking about the colonialism…

Some of the comments made above indeed make one wonder whether they are not themselves inspired by deep-seated nationalism and xenophobia. They are of course not Anti-Semites, God forbid, they just don’t like anything that Israeli Jews do, especially the self-identification as Jewish or Israeli. Moreover, some of the sentiments presented above by the posters play right into the hands of nationalism. By refusing to see the Israeli part of the story, by ignoring the massive effort of a great part of the Israeli society to promote peaceful coexistence, by ignoring or despising Israeli achievements even if “we did good,” by denying/demonizing/black-labeling Jewish cultural heritage – they instigate the feeling that “the world is against us.”

“Palestinian Who Claimed to Be a Jew Jailed For Rape By Deception”

“Two years ago Kashur met a Jewish woman on the street in Jerusalem. He worked as a messenger for an Israeli law firm and like some other Palestinians looking to integrate more effectively into Israeli society had assumed the identity of a Jew. He called himself Dudu, a common Israeli name.

On the same day the two had a consensual sexual encounter in a nearby office building. The woman, whose identity is still protected by law, did not know Kashur was an Arab. When she found out she filed a complaint with police.

Kashur was questioned by police and spent two years under house arrest facing a charge of rape and sexual assault. It was later dropped to the one of “rape by deception” in a plea bargain.”

So…..they sentenced him for lying to get into someone’s pants?
Lol
That kinda shit would never hold up in “democratic” America.
What they’re really doing is jailing him for being an Arab.
A clearly racist motive.

No one here is arguing that Jews (as a religion or ethnicity - whatever that actually means) are not smart, or that they haven’t accomplished great things.
What we’re arguing is against the obvious totalitarianism of the Israeli government, and it’s anti-semitic policies.

Israel is even prejudiced against other Jews, if they’re not Ashkenazi (hank you should look into how they have treated the Sephardic Jews in the past).

Like I said, it’s not about Jew vs. Muslim.
It’s about the abhorrent racist attitude of the Israeli government, and it’s unbridled colonialism.

And I agree with Valkyrie…this article, while not entirely overt about it, has an undertone of exceptionalism for ‘Jewishness’ (whatever that actually means).
It’s this exceptionalism that I take exception to.

 

postfuturist • • Aug 24, 2010

The situation in the Mideast is lose-lose: Israel loses, the feudalists win; Israel wins, it brutalizes its minorities… without a buddhist-minarcho-socialist-vegetarian gay-tolerant world, ALL nations oppress their minorities to some extent.
Arab-Israeli peace treaties buy time for outside parties to do damage control; as with the Gazan war a year and a half ago: the war was limited but the willpower for doing another war is there. Belligerents do not spend their lives fighting & hating to cease merely because intellectuals living safely outside of military areas want them to. By all means, encourage another treaty—however be prepared to wait until midcentury when the oldtimers are dead and have taken their animosities with them.

 

hank Pellissier • • Aug 24, 2010

I have two comments to make - 1) I am still reeling from Valkyrie’s dismissal of the black power movement as “racist” and “ethnocentric.” I don’t know how old the readership here is, but I am 58 and I was lucky enough to have lived during the civil rights movement. I have various emotions regarding Valkyrie’s statement, but the main feeling I have is sadness. Black and brown Americans have struggled immensely for equal rights. I’ve recently interviewed black activists who were sent 100 death threats, whose dogs were killed, whose wives committed suicide due to stress, whose mothers died of heart attacks due to abuse from whites, etc all because they saying, “I am black and I want respect.” I urge anyone who is unacquainted with prejudice to inform themselves of the terrible physical and emotional abuse caused by racism in the USA. Then ask yourself if you honestly believe it is unethical for persecuted ethnicities to work together for equal rights. I am hoping that the only excuse anyone has for dismissing equal rights movements for persecuted ethnicities is that they are ignorant. Please don’t let yourself be attracted to notions just because they are “new” or have a sweet simplistic symmetry that you find appealing.
This is all relevant to my discussion of Israel. In case anyone has forgotten, there were 6 million Jews killed in World War II, and Israel was established because it is regarded as a safeguard for Jewish survival. To accuse Jews of “ethnocentrism” in these circumstances is
so wildly obtuse as to border on cruelty. Even if Jews historically decided to ignore their ethnicity, their opponents could - and did - decide not to ignore it. What resulted was genocide.
2) I agree with what Illia stated above. I have read the criticisms of my article, with their rather bizarre intellectual arguments, and my conclusion is (like Illia’s) is that the so-called intellectual contentions are, in fact, just hiding hostile emotions. I can only guess as to what they are, like Illia did, but I think his appraisal was accurate. I fear there’s some kind of WASPY jingoist American resentment, that Israel is not to be praised, or South Korea either, that instead of noticing others - we, the readers, (white Americans?) are only supposed to praise ourselves, as the superior leaders of future transhumanism. This terror of acknowledging success in others will only promote ignorance.

 

Summerspeaker • • Aug 24, 2010

I agree with you about black power movements, Hank. On the other hand, I’ve become increasingly dismayed by your comment asking gay Americans to fall in line behind Israel and I’ve written about it over at my blog.

http://queersingularity.wordpress.com/

I think that’s a downright pernicious bit of rhetoric.

 

CygnusX1 • • Aug 24, 2010

@ Hank

It is a shame you fail to see the reasons why some of us responded to your article in this way, could it be anything to do with the way you presented it?

Take for example the following article that I read 4 days ago, before your article was presented here. Perhaps you read this also? I found this article inspiring and in complete contrast to your own, yet can you understand why? Please have a read and compare for yourself.

“Breaking the Brain code”
>> http://www.jpost.com/Home/Article.aspx?id=184708

Heavens knows why you’ve labelled all those who criticise as racist and anti-semitic when the comments clearly state otherwise? You’ve also dragged the South Koreans into this for some apparent reason, when they are perhaps destined for even greater contributions to humanity?

 

iPan • • Aug 24, 2010

Hank, you got it all wrong.

You can’t seem to separate ‘jewishness’ from ‘israel’.
Most of the criticisms here have absolutely nothing to do with jews, and everything to do with the apartheid, racist, war mongering state of israel.
Jewish people, like all people, deserve to be merited on an individual basis, and not on the basis of their ethnicity, or nationality.

You clearly can’t separate the two issues in your mind.

 

postfuturist • • Aug 24, 2010

You are correct, Hank. I remember the ‘60s as if it were yesterday: blacks were treated badly at that time. If many black militants pushed too far it was because if they hadn’t used threats, blacks wouldn’t have had the upper mocbility thay have today.
However, today the situation is more complicated, the Al Sharptons & Jesse Jacksons are cheap demagogues.

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 24, 2010

@Hank

Dismissive? I rate them as exactly equal with all other forms of discrimination that need to be ended, and that’s dismissive?

Sorry Hank, I know many black people too, was even best friends with a man who lived in the heart of the old “Harlem Heights” area of my old home town, and I recall all too well the outright hatred I had aimed at me any time I would come to pick him up for work, for no reason whatsoever but that I was white.

Hatred works both ways Hank. You can’t condemn it from one side and support it from the other. Do Blacks have a right to seek equal rights? Yes, but not to the point of “superior rights” And an enforced double standard of it being “okay” for certain actions to be not only allowed, but encouraged from one side, while resulting in howls of outrage when engaged in by the opposing side.

I refuse to engage in that double standard, Hank. Sorry that you find that reel worthy. If I cannot support a behavior from one side, I cannot support it from ANY side.

So, If I can’t support exceptionalism for the “Aryans” why do you expect me to support it for the “Jews”? If I can’t support hateful stereotypes and rampant bigotry from the “White Supremest” why do you think I will support their opposite versions from the “Black Power”?

I am for STRICT EQUALITY, Hank. WITHOUT EXCEPTIONS. So no, I WILL NOT endorse exceptionalism in ANY FORM. Be shocked if you must.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 24, 2010

This is for SummerSpeak -
for the record, Israel is a gay-friendly nation
in Gaza, gay behavior will get you 10 years in prison
In Syria, it will get you 3 years in prison
in Iran, it will get you executed.
The Jewish religion has proven to be, in the modern world, far more accepting of gays than the Islamic religion.
For me, it would seem logical for anyone interested in gay rights to
be far more supportive of Israel and the Jewish religion than to be supportive of Islamic nations, especially Palestine, Iran, and Syria.
That is how I see the logic.
Of course, political stances should not be decided on a single issue.
But when the gap is so wide, either:
gay-friendly Israel?
or Iran where gays get buried up their neck and then have walls pushed on them?
it seems like an obvious choice.
But I also disagree with you on the women’s issue as well.
I can’t imagine why women would support in any way an Afghanistan Taliban regime that wants to cut off girl’s noses.
You may think that I am simplistic in my logic, but I find you illogical.
This is not the first time in history that people have had to decide to like or not like a nation based on a human rights issue. There was apartheid in South Africa. It was wrong, and the perpetrators were ostracized. There was genocide in Cambodia. Wrong again, ditto. Now there are homophobic killers in Iran, homophobic jailers in Syria and Palestine, and “honor killers” and men who cut noses off of girls in Afghanistan. Wrong again.
You call the Israelis “imperialists.” I find this preposterous. They are a very tiny nation that has no interest in controlling the land of its neighbors, except for defensive purposes. They have never threatened to push the Syrians into the sea.
I know that there are indeed many gays who support Palestinian issues. I suppose that there is some self-identification in a notion of oppression, or some glamourous Lawrence of Arabia attraction to the culture, but I find it all very uneducated and self-destructive. If one is truly interested in gay equality, it would be better to spend your time working to end gay oppression in Jamaica, Iran, Barbados, Trinidad and similar homophobic nations. There is a lot of work to be done and a lot of people who need help. Two “adulterers” were stoned to death in Afghanistan last week. Girls are slaughtered in honor killings regularly. I think it is wiser to work for injustice by helping people like that, than helping Palestinians who are essentially controlled by gangsters, and who torture gays by putting bags of feces over their heads and beating them. It is commendable that you want to work for justice, I just want to make sure you are know exactly who you are working for.
P.S. thanks, everyone, for all the correspondence. I do enjoy this.

 

iPan • • Aug 25, 2010

Here’s where you err Hank:

“For me, it would seem logical for anyone interested in gay rights to
be far more supportive of Israel and the Jewish religion than to be supportive of Islamic nations, especially Palestine, Iran, and Syria.”

First, you lump “Israel” and the “Jewish religion” together as though they are one thing, implying that one cannot support one without the other.
Second, you imply that one has to support either “Israel” and the “Jewish religion” OR Palestine, Iran and Syria.

This is illogical.

Muslim culture is also guilty of horrendous crimes, and we do not need to support either them, or Israel….or Chinese human rights violations, or N. Korean human rights violoations.

You set this whole argument up as a ‘you are either completely against Israel, or completely for them’, and that smacks of the propaganda that Israel dishes out.

Guess what?

The Israeli government and military (not the people by and large, though a few of them are guilty as well) do horrible horrible things. So do some of the Muslims in Palestine. So do the Muslims in Iran, Iraq, Syria, etc. etc.
So do the Chinese, the Afghanis, many countries in S. America and Africa.

But, there is absolutely no reason to pull this lumping together bit. Which is sorta the problem with your article to begin with.

As I stated, each and every individual on this planet should be measured by their own accomplishments, not by their nationality or ethnicity. You are clearly trying to draw a picture of ‘Israeli’ exceptionalism, and now that you’ve been called out on it, your getting defensive.

One does not have to condone ass backwards Muslim culture to condemn the violent hatred of Israel. We can condemn both at the same time.

Of course, there are brilliant people in Israel. There are also brilliant people in Iran, America, China…..etc etc etc….in fact, there are brilliant people all over the world!

 

Summerspeaker • • Aug 25, 2010

Hank, did you read the quotation and link I posted from the perspective of queer Israeli radical Yossi? He rejects the characterization of Israel as queer-friendly. Instead, he suggests that it’s only welcoming to privileged queers who support the status quo. This exactly matches my understanding of our status in United States. To modify the Brazilian saying, money straightens. This doesn’t necessarily help queer folks on the street.

The question of imperialism makes up the core of our disagreement. I view the creation of Israel as an extension of that classically imperialist Western presence in the region. It came out of the British Empire, after all. European domination of the Middle East in the nineteenth century is universally accepted as far as I know. U.S. support for and influence over Israel caused it to perpetuate that tradition regardless of whatever other motivations and goal were involved.

This role as vehicle for U.S. control of the region frames my stance toward the country. In context, focusing overmuch on the admittedly horrible governments in Muslim states gives either tacit or explicit backing to continued Western hegemony. I feel people rightfully obsessed with rational thinking often pay too little attention to the importance of positioning in these matters. As an American, it’s my duty to frist end the oppressive system I unfortunately participate in. Telling the Palestinians what to do or demonizing them for their treatment of queers from this side of the pond only reinforces the existing unequal relationship. Besides, I need not even leave my home to fight homophobia; a friend of one of my housemates yelled a popular slur while I was typing this comment.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 25, 2010

The real problem with the above criticisms is their heavy bias toward the almost exclusively negative representation of Israel. A rare and truthful positive representation is immediately attacked as “propaganda of exceptionalsim.”

Militant nationalists elsewhere too emphasize heavily the critical element, e.g. of the “American Imperialism.” No American achievements exist for them (that were made possible only in America), they make no distinction between pacifists and militarists, for them all Americans are imperialists. And this is the sense one gets in general discussions like this regarding Israel.

Yes, there has been some notice here that there may be some good people in Israel. But what I mostly heard in this enlightened discussion regarding ISRAEL AS A NATION was “you imperialists, racists, Nazis, war-criminals, separatists.”

A personal confession: I admire Iran, not only its glorious 1,000 year old (Islamic!) cultural heritage, but also its present achievements in technology, scholarship, literacy, social security.
Yes, there are violations of the human rights there that need to be struggled with, as there are violations of the human rights in Israel, the US, China, Russia and all over the world that need to be struggled with. But I believe that the recognition of the achievements of other cultures will get us much farther in the promotion of peace than mere black-labeling.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 25, 2010

Iran has a great deal to be proud of in its long history. I particularly admire its monumental architecture, its poetry, and its recent advances in space exploration and robotics. I was actually considering writing an article called “Iran’s Value to Transhumanism” because it has much to offer.
Unfortunately, Iran has a wretched government, that was not even fairly elected. And its president spews vile hatred at Israel, in language that is absolutely barbaric. Here’s a recent sample:

excerpt from a public address delivered by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, on Iranian News Channel (IRINN), on June 16, 2010.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad: Over sixty years ago, by means of an artificial and false pretext, and by fabricating information and inventing stories, they gathered the filthiest, most criminal people, who only appear to be human, from all corners of the world. They organized and armed them, and provided them with media and military backing. Thus, they occupied the Palestinian lands, and displaced the Palestinian people.

FYI an Israeli Glenn Beck wanna-be right-wing talk show host’s take on transhumanism:

http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Blogs/Message.aspx/4334

“In this ‘Tower of Babel’ crazy quest of mankind to climb to heaven, dethrone G-d and make themselves gods, we are talking about the attempt to erase all borders, national sovereignties, sexual borders and identity, the combining of robotic technology with the human brain, etc….I don’t want to see a NWO (New World Order) with a blurring of morality, a blurring of sexes, a blurring of borders, or becoming a ‘god’. I prefer to embrace my humanity, while serving G-d, not being a god.”

She seems to perceive quite clearly the threat of H+‘s Enligthenment cosmopolitanism and universalism to national boundaries defined by religion and race.

 

iPan • • Aug 25, 2010

Ilia:
My friend Doojie at kurzweilai.net talks extensively about this issue, and I suggest if you have the time, you look into some of his posts.

“The real problem with the above criticisms is their heavy bias toward the almost exclusively negative representation of Israel. A rare and truthful positive representation is immediately attacked as “propaganda of exceptionalsim.””

The above criticisms are criticisms of the State of Israel, not the People of Israel.
It’s criticisms of their collective decisions/goals, not their individuals.
This is a crucial distinction.
I criticize all nations in the same way. When ever someone lauds an American, crediting their success in part or whole to their being American, I’m quick to point out the imperialistic tendencies and racist attitudes of Americans.
When someone lauds an Israeli, crediting their success in part or whole to their being Israeli, I’m quick to point out the imperialistic tendencies and racist attitudes of Israelis.
When someone lauds a Chinese, crediting their success in part or whole to their being Chinese, I’m quick to point out the brutal oppression of the Chinese.
Etc.

When someone simply lauds a person, mentions their origins for thoroughness and reference, but doesn’t imply that their success is due to their culture, then there is no discussion, such as this one.

Terrence McKenna said culture was our enemy, and he was right.
It’s the social programming that makes us ‘numb to the self’.

No one doubts that their are extremely intelligent Jews, both within Israel, and outside of Israel. Or that there are intelligent Israelis.
Cygnus posted a link to just such an article above.

But, when you credit their merits to their culture, you are creating exceptionalism for that culture.
The issue gets compounded when said culture is guilty of horrendous crimes.
In other words, these arguments would be hard to make if Israel never committed these crimes at all.
I think people just don’t want the atrocities to be forgotten.

Kinda like when someone brings up some of the many accomplishments of German scientists, someone is quick to point out that they killed 6 million Jews (and somehow manage to omit all the other minorities they killed - isn’t it interesting that we focus so much on how many Jews they killed, but ignore the mentally ill, the gypsies, etc - is this not another example of exceptionalism? Why don’t these other victims get recognition? Why only Jews?)

I believe individual Israeli/Jewish scientists should be fully and publicly praised for their accomplishments, but I will not in any way attribute this to their Jewishness, or their Israeliness until these cultures make good on the crimes they’ve committed.

I hold christians, for example, to the same standard. Sometimes Christians do good things, but I will not ever attribute any good thing they do to their being christian, until they seek forgiveness for the Crusades, the Inquisition, the witch burnings, the sexual abuse (including molesting my ex-wife in church), etc.

Same goes for Muslims. I’ll be the first to applaud a Persian for a scientific breakthrough, and in the same breath condemn them for their culture of stoning women, executing adulterers, etc. Until they apologize, and attempt to heal some of the damage they’ve done to individuals, their *culture* get’s ZERO credit, even if I’ll gladly credit some individuals within that culture.

Those exceptional individuals are usually those who rise above their culture. Who rebel and/or reject their culture (whether openly or secretly). Most of the brilliant people within these oppressive countries, are brilliant precisely because they go against the norm.

Alan Turning is sort of a poster child for this point I’m trying to make.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 25, 2010

Hi this is for Summerspeaker again. I urge you to read more than one report on gays in Israel. read this, for example: http://www.outtraveler.com/features.asp?did=1095
Regarding your concern about imperialism, I find it interesting that people focus on one concern when they analyze global politics and have it trump all others. Apparently you’ve picked Imperialism. This fills me with nostalgia for the 1960’s-1980’s when many people ranted about imperialism being the greatest of all evils. Nowadays the only people I meet that express this are young folks in the ANSWER coalition who are rather uneducated in history, except that they have read 1-2 Noam Chomsky books. I hope this doesn’t describe you.
One problem with making imperialism your primary peeve is that we don’t know how far back in history to go to redraw the borders. Should the Turks be moved out of Turkey, back to Central Asia? Should Indo-Aryans be chased out of India, back to the steppes of the Caucausus? Should all Arabs vacate their vast area of conquest and return to the Saudi desert? And of course, should two continents be returned to the original Native Americans? Usually people ranting about imperialism just focus on recent European imperialism, because ... it fills them with self-righteous guilt? In the case of Israel, imperialism obviously does or does not apply, depending on when you want to roll back time.
Personally, I don’t make “imperialism” my primary gripe, because I am not interested in supporting cultures that are human rights violators. I support enlightened cultures that treat their citizenry fairly, but no others. You are willing to support Palestine even though they have no gay rights; I am totally unwilling to do so, for “selfish” reasons. I am not gay but I am the donor to two lesbian friends, they have a son, my biological offspring. I am never going to support any government that oppresses the moms of my genetic lineage. You probably think you are “transcending” identity politics, but I see you as helping people who would torture you if they could. Doesn’t make any sense to me.

 

postfuturist • • Aug 25, 2010

Dr. Hughes is right, “H+‘s Enligthenment cosmopolitanism and universalism” is what most at IEET want, not borders of all sorts: national, racial, ethnic, gender.
Still, the dislocation is and will be enormous—such ought not be minimized.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 25, 2010

for Kyle McKittrick—this is in response to your comment, “H+ doesn’t need Israel anymore than Phenomenology needs France” - I must admit that was thought-provoking for me and I couldn’t respond to it immediately, since I don’t know anything about French Phenomenology. But I have now researched the topic and my opinion is that your phrase is pithy, succinct and provocative, but the reference to French Phenomenology is just a pseudo-intellectual distraction, and there is actually no wisdom or integrity enclosed in your phrase. Your denial of Israel’s value is callous, and your use of language is glib. I commend you on your ability to distract me with the jingoistic skill you displayed, but it would be better to use your literary skills to actually say something worth merit. I was particularly saddened and shocked by the phrase “H+ doesn’t need Israel” - dismissing an entire hard-working nation with so many cutting edge contributions… I can only hope that you actually didn’t mean it, you just liked the clever sound of your phrase…?

 

postfuturist • • Aug 25, 2010

... there’s a temptation to perceive the world as a lab, and its residents as lab animals; to think thousands of years of traditions—most of them pernicious—can be removed without too much pain. But as bad traditions dissolve, the resulting pain is real, the dislocation is real. Look what happened to Russia, starting in 1917 the Russians tried to go from the 12th century to the 20th, with mass carnage ensuing.
One thing is for sure: in 2020 the Arab-Israeli conflict will be ongoing. After that, I don’t know, I’m not interested in more than a decade ahead—attempting to look too far ahead now appears to me to be chasing rainbows in searching for a pot of traqnshumanist gold.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 25, 2010

this is for Valkyrie and iPan and the other “anti-exceptionalists”
Thanks for letting me know about this terminology. I had never heard of it before. Now that I know about it, I must confess that I am indeed an “exceptionalist” - I believe there is a great deal to be learned by studying the admirable cultures of the world who achieved great milestones in art and science. I am not, however, at all enamored of “American exceptionalism.” I do like, and am inspired by, other “exceptional” cultures though, for example: Northern Sung Dynasty, Dutch Golden Age, Prague Golden Age, Japan’s Golden Age, Moorish Spain’s Golden Age, Athen’s Age of Pericles. You might note that 4 of those 6 had a strong Jewish influence.
for iPan - I am not particularly impressed by Terence McKenna, and I don’t think your tagline “Kill Your Culture” is good avice, especially if one’s culture has a great deal to offer.

 

iPan • • Aug 25, 2010

@Hank

“I support enlightened cultures that treat their citizenry fairly, but no others.”

Did you read the article I posted about the Arab who is being jailed for “rape by deception”?

“One problem with making imperialism your primary peeve is that we don’t know how far back in history to go to redraw the borders. Should the Turks be moved out of Turkey, back to Central Asia? Should Indo-Aryans be chased out of India, back to the steppes of the Caucausus? Should all Arabs vacate their vast area of conquest and return to the Saudi desert? And of course, should two continents be returned to the original Native Americans?”

This is why I’ve mentioned integration.
The Israeli’s are there to stay. We don’t want to uproot anyone again.
This is why I think the two-state solution won’t work.
They need to integrate into a unified society.
End apartheid.

I think that this whole argument really boils down to an issue about individualism vs. collectivism.

In the article you wrote, you make a clear bid to associate the accomplishments of individuals with their collective, or national identity.

Some of the more radically individualistic amongst us take exception to this, especially when the culture in question is guilty of crimes.

Not all Israeli’s are guilty of the crimes of it’s government, just as not all Americans are guilty of the crimes of it’s government, or all Persians are guilty of the crimes of it’s government.

But, if you’re going to attribute the accomplishments of an individual to the culture they live in, it’s probably a good idea to understand whether or not that culture is blameless, otherwise you’re always going to get people who will point out the less savory side of that same culture.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 25, 2010

@iPan

I couldn’t have said that better myself.

ANY distinction other than individual merit is meaningless. Even though I am a strong collectivist, who believes humans are at their best when working co-operatively, I express that thought in terms of the over-collective, not in terms of exclusionary sub-collectives.

We are all part of hundreds of collectives, but who I am is not determined by which collective I am part of. I am not just a cog in the “American collective” or the “LGBT collective” or the “trans-sexual collective” or the “transhumanist collective” or even the “Tennessee collective” I may be part of all those collectives, but I am an individual.

And as an Individual, I would take great offense at having MY PERSONAL ACHIEVEMENTS attributed to the COLLECTIVE instead of to me personally.

And that is the heart of what’s going on here. Do these scientists deserve recognition for their achievements? Or is it only their collective that deserves recognition, moreso than the individuals do?

Who did the work? These individuals, or the exclusionary sub-collective that is a nation state, or a religious ideology?

Collectives exist to serve the common good. They have no other purpose. It is the INDIVIDUALS responsibility to ensure that a collective fulfills this function. And when we forget that collectives ARE NOTHING BUT TOOLS OF THE INDIVIDUALS WHO COMPRISE THAT COLLECTIVE, and instead treat them as “greater” than mere individuals, then we have ceased to use that tool, and instead have allowed it to use us.

These scientists deserve their credit, and sadly Hank took it away from them and gave it to the collective instead.

And that is what turned it from a report, to propaganda.

@Hank

I’m sorry if you find my views shocking, but I’m not going to change my stance. If you couldn’t tell from my arguments over strict gender equality in the sexbots thread how strongly I oppose ANY form of exceptionalism and support ONLY precise equality for everyone regardless of gender, race, creed, culture or nationality, then I apologize for failing to make it even clearer.

I support equal rights for everyone. But ONLY EQUAL RIGHTS. No-one has a “freepass” for behavior that is not allowed by all sides. THERE CAN BE NO DOUBLE STANDARDS.

No-one. Not Blacks, not Jews, not Men, not Women, not terrorists, not Corporations, not even the Pope himself. NO-ONE has a right to “be an exception to the rules”

Call me a militant equalitist if you wish. I’ll defend pure neutral equality to anyone who argues for an exception, for ANY cause. And I will point out any arguments for exceptionalism I see, and attempt, as I attempted to do both here and on H+, to show why exceptionalism is WRONG, not only on a legal and moral level, but because it is DESTRUCTIVE TO THE CONTINUED EXISTENCE OF HUMANITY.

Look at every single MAN MADE threat to our long term survival, and in EVERY case you will find the threat is due to Exceptionalism. One side or another thinks it has a greater right to existence than the other, and tries to exterminate those “less deserving”.

Exceptionalism cannot be supported, period. Not if we wish for the human race to survive to reach a transhumanist future.

iPan,
There might be a better idea. Let us all ask and grant forgiveness from and to everyone we have ever wronged. (I believe this is what Christianity teaches and this is what religious Jews do every year on Yom Kippur). And we can also ask forgiveness from everybody our ancestors wronged whoever they may be, which may cover the entire world apologizing to itself. And this being done, we can strive to create a world that acknowledges and tolerates diversity, including religious and national diversity.

I fail to understand how Humanity Plus is inherently opposed to religious and national traditions. I have just found this quote, which impressed me very much and which I would like to share with you:

“There is no such age fixed for human life the transgression of which would be impossible. …. All the above observations in the medical and biological sciences make it possible for human beings to expect to discover the secret of longevity and overcome old age one day. Moreover, it has prompted them to continue their research until the goal is reached. There is hope that scientific research into understanding the mystery of longevity will also lead to uncovering the secret of the long life of the Qa’im [Imam Al-Mahdi] from the Family of the Prophet (peace be upon him and his progeny). Let us hope that day will come soon.”
In Ayatollah Ibrahim Amini, “Al-Imam al-Mahdi, The Just Leader of Humanity” Ch. “The Research About Longevity”

This is Islamic transhumanism right there! And this is the Islamic culture that I admire, that produced Firdousi’s “Shah Nameh” and the Taj Mahal, not the ramblings of Ahmadinejad.

How can any one say that these works were produced outside of the culture of Islam, regardless of it, or in opposition to it, when they define the best in the Islamic culture? How can we discard historical memory and tradition? Wouldn’t that make us less than human rather than more than human? Wouldn’t it be impossible to have Islamic, Christian, Jewish, Hindu or Buddhist, transhumanism, or diverse kinds of transhumanism adjusted to diverse countries and national contexts? Wouldn’t that make the world a richer place? Or is no one allowed to have any diverging cultural affiliation?

@ Hank

I’m not particularly impressed by McKenna either, and I find numerous elements from all cultures admirable as well.

What I don’t do is admire them so much I give them a blind pass for everything.

I admire Japan greatly, I freely admit to being Otaku, and even somewhat hentai.

But I don’t blind myself to flaws in their culture, which despite the popularity of “Yuri” hentai is NOT tolerant of lesbians, gays, bi, or trans. O dear friend of mine is not only lesbian, but she is a Korean adopted by a Japanese couple as a baby. She has thus GROWN UP as a Japanese citizen.

And she is an outcast to her entire family. Not because of her being a lesbian, which she is concealing, BUT FOR THE CRIME OF NOT BEING PURE BLOOD JAPANESE.

Can I admire many things about Japanese culture, while refusing to blind myself to the injustices perpetuated by it to those who aren’t “in the club”? You betcha.

It’s not an all or nothing deal Hank. We can value the positive points while condemning the negative.

If you have not yet read it, Hank, I would like to strongly recommend you read this book: http://www.scribd.com/doc/2532766/God-Wants-You-Dead

(description from the link)

“This book is about the past, present and future evolution of human ideas. Its primary emphasis is on parasitic collectivist ideologies. It examines where they come from, how they harm us and how we can remove them from our own minds and from the culture around us. Finally, it tells us the amazing things that will become possible for humanity when they are gone. Not only religions, but also nation states, racial groups, corporations and other collectives are targeted for clear minded observation and criticism”

I can be both a supporter for the needs of collectivism, while still supporting individual rights as supreme precisely because I refuse to accept ideologies as “lumps” in which every part is equally good. I can read the bible and acknowledge that a majority of it is BS, while still admiring those parts of it which promote positive messages. I can look at Japan and admire those parts of it I admire, without having to admire those specific cases of xenophobia, intolerance, and persecution that I am aware of.

Your argument is an All or Nothing one Hank, demanding I admire a culture in every aspect, or else I am assumed to be “against it” And I refuse to be drawn into such a false dichotomy. I can admire the actions and research of these scientists without having to admire the government of the nationstate, and the religion which it endorses.

Recognizing the value of individual aspects does not mean I must admire the whole. Someone could cover a beautiful statue with pigshit, and call it art. I can still admire the statue and desire to wash the pigshit off.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 25, 2010

@Ilia

As I just got done saying to Hank, I can admire those parts of a culture worthy of admiring, without having to blindly accept those aspects unworthy of admiration.

But those wonderful words you quoted were the words of an individual. They reflect his individual beliefs and opinions, and while those may be shared by many within his culture, THEY ARE NOT UNIQUE TO HIS CULTURE.

So by claiming it is the “Islamic Culture” that created these words, as opposed to the individual who actually wrote them, you rob this individual of the praise he rightly deserves, and give it instead to a fictional entity “Islamic culture”

In essence, you robbed him of his humanity, making him just a cog in his “Collective”, no longer a person, just a tool of the collective he serves.

Hank did the same in his article.

We need collectives, they serve valuable functions in human survival, but we must never forget that they are fictional entities, tools created by mankind to serve mankind. The moment we begin seeing collectives as “more than human” and thus “more deserving than humans” we cross the line into exceptionalism.

I much admire the words you quoted, and would certainly admire the man that they came from, but I have heard similar words from many transhumanists, in many cultures, in many variants, so why should I assume those words are “Islamic”? Why should I assume that they only came into existence SOLELY because the speaker was Islamic? What does his “presumed” religion have to do with anything? For all I know, he could simply be claiming a religious title without having the slightest faith in Allah. So presuming his words speak for his entire “culture” is only defensible if I make a bunch of assumptions based on what “I” think defines “Islam” which may or may not have any resemblance to what he may think of as “Islam”

And, as I recommended to Hank, I strongly recommend you read the book I linked in the above post.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 25, 2010

Just a few examples on how “special” cultures shape scientific and technological achievements: It has been often argued that the Japanese advancements in robotics owe a great deal to the Shinto religion that attributes a soul to inanimate objects. Israeli advancements in stem cell research owe to the fact that the experiments are allowed until 40 days of embryonic development. And that is because, according to the Talmud (to be precise “Yabamot”) the soul enters at the 40th day. It has been also convincingly demonstrated that the 17th century “Protestant Ethics” kick-started the scientific revolution. The list can be continued endlessly. And there is nothing “wrong” with it. To deny the crucial impact of specific social milieu or “culture” on scientific progress is simple ignorance.

 

Summerspeaker • • Aug 25, 2010

Hank, by the best estimates, U.S. adventures in Iraq and Afghanistan have directly killed many tens of thousands over the last decade. That’s only the most easily quantifiable measure of the harm imperialism causes.

The context that matters is the present. The creation of Israel is part of continuing story of Western domination in the region. As citizens of the great power it’s our moral responsibility to oppose the oppression we’re connected to.

The rest of your response makes me think my worst interpretation of your intent was accurate. You’re telling queers like me to pick up an Israeli flag or get tortured by the Other. (Strangely enough, the Palestinians I know over here have always treated me rather well.)

All true.
Many advancements in military technology (some of which Israel uses today) can be directly credited to Nazi Germany.

Israel is authoritarian in many ways, young men are conscripted into the IDF, just for starters. Yet the treatment of women by Israel is better than elsewhere in the region, which might be an understatement. IMO such is the only legitimacy exceptionalism can ethically claim; expediency? that is a different ball game; ethics are IMO what legitimizes exceptionalism. My judgment call is the ‘West’ is, overall, slightly more ethical than its enemies—even though our enemies are probably only fighting for their own interests.
Unfortunately for both them and us, their interests are not compatible.
So on both ethical and national interest grounds the opponents of exceptionalism at this time lose. Anti-exceptionalism reminds me of Leninism, people want to have a revolution but they don’t have a genuine way of realizing a revolution.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 25, 2010

Hi - this is my last email on this topic and I thank everyone for a lively discussion. My article has certainly sucked up sufficient attention and I believe we should now read all the other IEET articles and give them equal scrutiny. I want to thank everyone for what I’ve learned about myself: 1) I am an “exceptionalist” believing that certain cultures deserve praise and attention more than others, and certain ethnicities need to be protected from persecution 2) I am more of a human rights advocate than an anti-imperialist 3) I am a “collectivist” because I believe individuals owe an enormous debt to the culture they sprang from.—
So thanks, and see you all at the next debate, don’t take too many drugs iPan, don’t help people beat you up Summerspeaker, keep it real Kyle, we finally disagree and that’s healthy Valkyrie, and Illia, I think you’re wonderful and I guess I am supposed to join you at Masada. I will have another essay up in two weeks and I want to see you all there at your vicious best.

“The context that matters is the present. The creation of Israel is part of continuing story of Western domination in the region. As citizens of the great power it’s our moral responsibility to oppose the oppression we’re connected to.”

You write of the present, but Israel was created in 1948: you cannot return to the status quo ante of 62 years ago—two full generations—anywhere, including the Mideast.
None of you has any plan or even insight of what to do. It is a case of academics, armed only with their keyboards, passing judgment on partly understood armed belligerents thousands of miles away.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 25, 2010

@ Ilia

At what point did I deny that cultures can influence people? I haven’t. I have pointed out the fallacy of attributing individual achievements to a ideological fiction, in essence dismissing the individual, and treating them as if they have no existence other than as part of the ideological fiction.

Are certain memes beneficial? Without a doubt, but those memes exist with or without the ideological baggage that is attempted to be lumped in with it.

Let’s take your “Protestant ethics” shall we?

Do you truly understand why the protestants had these ethics? Because they were the same ethics that had always been enforced on the poor. “Be productive” “be a good worker” “be a good obedient servant to authority” These “ethics” were taught as part and parcel of the religion of Christianity, as they were taught as part and parcel of the Judaic laws they claimed to be taken from. Whether those “ethics” were actually in the bible is not at issue, they were still taught as “god’s law”

Why did the Reformation take place? Because the “protestants” saw that these “ethics” were taught only to the poor. The Rich could buy “Exceptions”.

This exceptionalism is the entire basis for the “Protestant Reformation” The Protestants didn’t think that there should be “exceptions”.

And so, we had the beginnings of “the Scientific revolution” right alongside the “Protestant Reformation” because BOTH OF THEM WERE STARTED BY THE INVENTION OF THE PRINTING PRESS, which enabled the “masses” the equal access to information that had previously only been the provence of the “exceptions”

And yes, they influenced one another enormously.

But that reformation also lead to 100 years of some of the worst religious intolerance since the early christian era prior to the establishment of the “Catholic” church at the Council of Nicea.

How many religious factions wiped each other out? How many wars occurred because of one religious group gaining political power and using it to wipe out their “enemy heretics”?

Do you even recall the civil wars in England between the Calvinists, the Anglicans, and the Catholics? The destruction of the Cathars and Huguenots in France?

And the Puritans? The Pilgrims? In fact almost every single religious “settlement” in the USA? They came here in search of “religious freedom” not because they were so horribly persecuted, BUT BECAUSE THEY WERE PREVENTED BY LAW FROM PERSECUTING RIVAL RELIGIONS. In other words, since they couldn’t have the freedom to “wipe out the heretics” they chose to escape to a land where “there were no heretics”.

Can I see enormous value in these “cultural” ideologies? Sure. Every culture has memes which are of enormous value to the collective good of humanity.

But I can also see the destructive memes which have become parasites on the non-destructive memes, creating an ideological memeplex which cannot be accepted as a “complete package”

And all that you and Hank have done so far is defend why we must ACCEPT these ideologies as A WHOLE, while all I have done is pointed out that I don’t have to ignore the bad to accept the good, but have the ability to disassemble that memeplex to extract the beneficial, while discarding the harmful, and explain why I can praise an individual, without having to assume that individual is an agent of a ideological memeplex.

 

postfuturist • • Aug 25, 2010

postfuturist • • Aug 25, 2010

... so tell us: why is it a nation comprisingly a small fraction of the Mideast region—and a population of only about 7,602,400—arouses such hatreds?

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 25, 2010

@ postfuturist

Why? Because it’s tied into the major religious dogma of western religions.

The Christians want Israel there, but do you really understand why?

Because the destruction of Israel is the “sign of the apocalypse” that heralds the Rapture, Tribulations, and the 2nd Coming.

So unless that nation remains INTACT up until the “Apocalypse” then it invalidates Revelations.

Iran is simply the latest “possible stater of Armageddon”. Before them it was Iraq, before that it was maybe the Chinese, before that it was the Egyptians, etc.

It’s sad when a powerful nation like America offers UNCONDITIONAL support to a nation that they helped create for no other reason then that it’s destruction will make sure a 2000 year old prophecy is validated.

If I were the Jews, I would find that little fact worrisome.

 

iPan • • Aug 25, 2010

Well, guess I’ll sign off too

@Valkyrie
Thanks for putting it so succinctly. I certainly didn’t make my arguments as gracefully as you did, but I see the issue mostly from the same perspective.

@Hank
Gratz to you for accepting that your an ‘exceptionalist’. Acceptance is the first step to recovery 😉
But seriously, now that you know that about yourself, you can examine it to find out whether or not it contains true moral value. Questioning values is always a productive process 😊

@Everyone
In case anything I’ve said is taken out of context, I want to be clear that my entire intent all along is to show ‘the other side of the coin’ and nothing more.

Thanks all.

p.s. @Hank
About the drugs thing. There is a fast growing movement amongst researchers right now that are pushing to use psychadelics in treatment of psychiatric disorders, namely, depression, anxiety, end-of-life. I feel vindicated, because I’ve always advocated controlled, responsible, guided, thought out use of psychadelics. Looks like I’ll get the last laugh on that score (and possibly some prescribed psychadelics soon!)

Farewell

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 26, 2010

I really am leaving, but I just can’t let Valkyrie’s goodbye go without comment—the final statement that Valkyrie made “It’s sad when a powerful nation like America offers UNCONDITIONAL support to a nation that they helped create for no other reason then that it’s destruction will make sure a 2000 year old prophecy is validated”
is absolutely preposterous, and insulting to both Jews and Americans.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 26, 2010

Valkyrie,

I guess we can agree that cultures are influential and necessary for human development and that there are good and bad elements in each culture, and for that matter in each individual, that need to be respectively nourished or opposed. The only difference it seems is that you primarily see the negative elements, and I see the positive elements that define the culture. You seem to think collectives are predominantly bad and exceptional individuals are good, I on the contrary believe that human communities are generally good and it is the individuals who commit atrocities that shame their cultures.

And Hank,
Thanks for your “exceptional” article, a beacon of positivity in the sea of darkness and hatred. As for Masada (I guess you are referring to 66 AD), I hope it does not come to that : - )

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 26, 2010

@Hank

Yes it is preposterous. And it’s also one of the wonderful little “facts” that if you had ever been to a SBC church and had to listen to the wonderful sermons on how important Israel is, and how it’s destruction will herald the Return of Christ, and all the “heathens will be destroyed!!!!” then you’d realize that the “support” offered by the “Christians” is that of a fanatic feeding what it sees as a sacrificial goat. After all, Jew’s aren’t Christian, and they aren’t going to heaven after having rejected “The Messiah”

And you are absolutely right it’s insulting. What’s even more insulting is how few “Christians” actually question these sermons that continually refer to “Revelations” and Israel’s “sacrificial” role in Christian Mythology.

But don’t take my word for it. Feel free to read any Chick Tract you wish, or even better, “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey.

And @ Illia.

You are making a rather large assumption there Ilia. I believe that “Collectives” are primarily good. They are a survival trait that all pack animals share. By definition, a collective is a co-operative effort in which each individual contributes to the common good. As such Collectives are inherently beneficial.

The problem comes when INDIVIDUALS derail simple collectivism into PERSONAL GAIN. When they misuse collective power to “line their own nests” at the collective’s expense.

The “evil” of a collective is the same as the “good” INDIVIDUALS.

In this case, some aspects of the “Jewish” collective are quite noble and beneficial. I am fully supportive of those cultural aspects that promote those beneficial memes.

But I WILL NOT allow those good points to make me overlook the bad aspects that are part and parcel of the memeplex of “Judaism”, especially the single primary meme of “Jew’s are Special” because they “Are God’s Chosen” and thus “Jews should not be held to the same standards as anyone else”

As someone else pointed out, 7 Million gypsies, gays, mentally ill, blacks, and other “undesirables” died in the German Concentration Camps. And you never hear about them, because they weren’t “Specially Chosen”

Exceptionalism. We hated the Nazi’s for it, but it’s okay for this group or that group? It’s okay to ignore human right’s violations, genocidal assaults on defenseless villages like Jenin, or assaults on civilian ships, because of who did it?

It’s not the collective itself that’s to blame Ilia. It’s the people who are using that collective to achieve their own personal agendas, and fulfill their own personal vendettas.

But it’s also just as much the fault of all those who turn blind eyes to such activities because they buy into the “exceptionalism” of such people because of collective affiliation. Because by allowing the “exceptions” to exist, they effectively support such destructive and self serving behavior.

 

Ilia Stambler • • Aug 26, 2010

Valkyrie,

If anything, the world is far from “ignoring” anything that Israelis do, that is to say, noticing almost exclusively the bad things they do. This is true exceptionalism. I would advise you to research deeper into the Israeli realities, even into the incidents you mention, to see how and why they originated. And I would also like to advise you to apply the degree of “fairness” you exhibit regarding Israel also to other contexts, including your own. (For example, always talk about atrocities in any conversation related to any other country.) But I guess there is really no point to argue about this any longer. People have their “memplexes” and nothing will ever change them.

 

Abraham • • Aug 26, 2010

Valkyrie Ice writes: “It’s sad when a powerful nation like America offers UNCONDITIONAL support to a nation that they helped create for no other reason then that it’s destruction will make sure a 2000 year old prophecy is validated.”

Then Hank slams Valkyrie Ice.

Then Valkyrie Ice backs up his insulting assertion by pointing to the SBC church.

As if they speak for all of America! Get real.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 26, 2010

@Ilia

Yes, EVERY COUNTRY AND CULTURE in the world has had it’s share of atrocities. History is filled with examples, but they don’t get the same glossing over that is reserved for “Exceptions”. America itself gets more glossing over than fifty Israels, I’m sad to say.

But I seem incapable of making you aware of why Exceptionalism is a danger to the continued survival of the human race, so you are correct, there is not much point continuing this discussion.

@ Abraham,

I referenced two universally available sources for my views. Chick Tracts, which are the #1 distributor of religious tracts in America (If you’ve EVER read a tract found in a phone booth or on a train, odds are it was a Chick Publication), and “The Late Great Planet Earth” by Hal Lindsey, which was a record breaking best seller in the late 70’s early eighties, which detailed in full how Israel would be destroyed as part of the Rapture, Tribulation, and 2nd Coming.

As for the SBC, Remember the Moral Majority? The massive political power group that helped put Regan and Bush 1 into office? It was almost entirely composed of the SBC.

But you are right, the SBC alone is not representative of the “majority” Christian faith, to give you REAL proof of my “insult”? I’ll give you the most definitive source possible.

http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Revelation+1&version=NIV

There you go, John the Prophet’s own words. The Book of Revelations. The definitive guide to the end time as written by John of Patmos during the time of Nero, and the Foundation of all belief in the “End Times” the “Second Coming” and of course, the “Destruction of Israel” by the “Beast” as a prelude to the “Return of Christ in Glory”

 

postfuturist • • Aug 26, 2010

“Then Valkyrie Ice backs up his insulting assertion by pointing to the SBC church. As if they speak for all of America! Get real.”

Don’t forget Hal Lindsey, that self-appointed spokesman

Abraham • • Aug 26, 2010

Valkyrie Ice, I think your prowess in logic is failing you today.
First, the fact that Chick tracts are very popular lends little support to your contention that they represent American thinking. The New York Times is very popular, too.
Second, the fact that most of America believes in the book of Revelations lends very little to support your contention that “America offers unconditional support to a nation that they helped create for no other reason then that it’s destruction will make sure a 2000 year old prophecy is validated.”

 

postfuturist • • Aug 26, 2010

Sorry, missed the comment on Lindsey thanks to a blizzard of comments in the mail—a thousand pardons for such an oversight. But a question: what was wrong with the “Moral Majority” pushing Reagan into office?; Reagan’s administration helped instigate the end of the Cold War—so in retrospect the Reagan administration was a blessing in disguise.
That is, unless some of you think the Cold War was a good thing.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 26, 2010

Thanks Abraham - the reason I say Valkyrie’s assertion is insulting to both Jews and Americans is because I believe Jews and Americans have a real friendship for each other, based on Jews living here for over a century and making massive contributions in numerous fields, including philanthropy and civil rights. To state that this is not an actual friendship based on mutual respect and appreciation, but just a relationship based on the Revelations, is to dismiss all the genuine natural feelings of goodwill, and the mutual work that went into establishing everything positive about Jewish & American relationships. It is tiresome to even have to explain this.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 26, 2010

@Post Futurist

I never said it was either good or bad. I simply said it occurred.

@Abraham

The error you are making is to assume I am saying this is an “active” thought pattern. It isn’t. It’s one of those cases of “exceptionalism” I have been attempting to point out all along. Can you deny that Revelations specifically states that the destruction of Israel is “Part of God’s Plan for the End Times?”

You can’t, not with any evidence that a simple reading of the book of Revelations won’t discredit.

But, an “exception” gets made now doesn’t it? Just like it’s expected to make an “exception” for Joshua’s genocidal purges in the Old Testament. The fact that Revelations specifically predicts the destruction of Israel is “glossed over” because we’re supposed to only see “the good” side of the bible. We “excuse” the fact that EVERY SINGLE BELIEVER IN THE SECOND COMING is IMPLICITLY looking at Israel as a sacrificial goat to “the Beast”

It is this EXACT same “exceptionalism” that allows this, in my opinion, horrendous belief system, to continue, with millions believing that “The End Times are Near” and that Obama is the Anti-Christ, etc, WITHOUT EVER EXAMINING THE IMPLICATIONS OF THEIR BELIEFS.

And you and Hank both proved all too well exactly why I say you cannot make exceptions. You’re insulted by my pointing out the actual verifiable FACTS of the belief system you support, and which you argue needs to be “An Exception”

Why? What part of what I said contradicts the actual words of the Bible? What part of what I said about the Christian Mythos CANNOT BE VERIFIED AS FACT? There is nothing to be insulted over, except the fact that you chose to make “Exceptions” in this case, and have blinded yourself to the reality.

And because of that Unconditional “Exceptionalism” given to the Christian mythology millions of people offer unconditional support for Israel, WITHOUT BEING AWARE OF THE FACTS OF THEIR OWN RELIGION.

And that’s today, when religion has a much much weaker hold on the average American than it did in the early half of the century.

And because of the “sacredness” and “holiness” of “Israel” unconditional support has been given by the vast majority of Americans, granting to Israel the exact same “exceptionalism” that they give to their own religious beliefs, never questioning the ideological memeplex which also includes such objectionable beliefs as the one you find so “insulting”

Why, because you refuse to see any evil, because you are making “An Exception” and turning off your rational mind when it comes to these deep seated, embedded in childhood, beliefs.

But I will concede that my statement was an overgeneralization, because it was not the SOLE reason, but it was and still is a gigantic hidden motivator in USA/Israel relations. It’s these hidden motivators that form the greatest dangers when dealing with “Exceptionalism”.

Now, Hank, I happen to agree with you that Jews and Americans have a real friendship. But it’s precisely because we “gloss” over the truth of these belief systems too many people seek to do exactly what you did in this article, IGNORE THE NEGATIVES, while seeking to hide them behind the positives.

Do you truly think that this is isolated SOLELY to USA/Israel relations? No. It’s ENDEMIC to most of the human race. Everyone seeks to make their side “An Exception” to the rules that they want to enforce on the other side. It doesn’t matter what the ideological dispute is over.

Feel free to think I dismiss whatever you want to think I dismiss. I don’t feel I am dismissing anything, and thats the problem. I’m not dismissing the things YOU want me to dismiss, and that you want “Exceptions” made for.

Hank, I consider you a friend, and there’s a lot we agree on, but we are going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I’ll apologize for the fact that you found my words insulting, but I can’t change the truth of what the bible says, or the Christian Mythos that has been built up around it, nor can I change the massive influence that it has on American culture, often in ways that are totally hidden from those acting on those influences.

And at all of you, I think we can agree that terrorist attacks are horrendously “bad” but think about what those who commit them are thinking. They are performing actions that they would otherwise object to, because the Islamic religion also forbids suicide… but they are “exceptions” and thus freed fom the same rules they want everyone else to obey.

Once you make an exception, you cease to use either rational or ethical judgement evaluations. I cannot make it any plainer than that.

“It is tiresome to even have to explain this.”

You know what else is tiresome?
Having to point out to you over and over that Valkyrie (and myself) are talking about Israel as a State power, and not Jews (even if some equate Jewish = Israel).

You constantly (and not explicitly) try to make Israel equivalent to Jewishness.

I think all along, that Valkyrie and I are only pointing out the error in this, and specifically, how it is culture itself that reinforces this error.

That’s tiresome.

Israel does not equal Judaism. And Israeli’s (as a whole, as a nationality) are not better than other nations/cultures, although there are some really impressive people there (and elsewhere too!)

for iPan—according to wikipedia, Israel is 75.4% Jewish and approximately 50% of the Jews in the world live there. so… Israel is not 100% Jews, as you have been pointing out. But it is a quite sizable majority.

> “And you and Hank both proved all too well exactly why I say you cannot make exceptions. You’re insulted by my pointing out the actual verifiable FACTS of the belief system you support…”

Just thought I’d point out your mistaken assumption: That’s not a belief system I support.

> “Can you deny that Revelations specifically states that the destruction of Israel is “Part of God’s Plan for the End Times?”“

No need to deny a statement that I felt was largely irrelevant to your overgeneralization. Since you finally admitted you overgeneralized, I feel my work with you is done. Oh wait, one more. I’ll use iPan’s statement for this one:

>“You (Hank) constantly (and not explicitly) try to make Israel equivalent to Jewishness.”

Since Valkyrie Ice makes the same equivalence between America and Christiandom, what’s the big deal?

“for iPan—according to wikipedia, Israel is 75.4% Jewish and approximately 50% of the Jews in the world live there. so… Israel is not 100% Jews, as you have been pointing out. But it is a quite sizable majority. “

Statistics can be misleading. The situation is more complex.
http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/world-jewish-population.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jewish_population

Of course, none of this mentions the distribution of Ashkenazi, Sephardic, or Mizrahim.
Which of these three groups do you think is most represented in Israel?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jews#Who_is_a_Jew.3F

Judaism shares some of the characteristics of a nation, an ethnicity, a religion, and a culture, making the definition of who is a Jew vary slightly depending on whether a religious or national approach to identity is used.[25] Generally, in modern secular usage, Jews include three groups: people who were born to a Jewish family regardless of whether or not they follow the religion; those who have some Jewish ancestral background or lineage (sometimes including those who do not have strictly matrilineal descent); and people without any Jewish ancestral background or lineage who have formally converted to Judaism and therefore are followers of the religion.[26] At times, conversion has accounted for a substantial part of Jewish population growth. In the first century of the Christian era, for example, the population more than doubled, from 4 to 8–10 million within the confines of the Roman Empire, in good part as a result of a wave of conversion.

Within the world’s Jewish population there are distinct ethnic divisions, most of which are primarily the result of geographic branching from an originating Israelite population, and subsequent independent evolutions. An array of Jewish communities were established by Jewish settlers in various places around the Old World, often at great distances from one another resulting in effective and often long-term isolation from each other. During the millennia of the Jewish diaspora the communities would develop under the influence of their local environments; political, cultural, natural, and populational. Today, manifestation of these differences among the Jews can be observed in Jewish cultural expressions of each community, including Jewish linguistic diversity, culinary preferences, liturgical practices, religious interpretations, as well as degrees and sources of genetic admixture.[31]
Jews are often identified as belonging to one of two major groups: the Ashkenazim, or “Germanics” (Ashkenaz meaning “Germany” in Medieval Hebrew, denoting their Central European base), and the Sephardim, or “Hispanics” (Sefarad meaning “Spain/Hispania” or “Iberia” in Hebrew, denoting their Spanish, and Portuguese, base). The Mizrahim, or “Easterners” (Mizrach being “East” in Hebrew), that is, the diverse collection of Middle Eastern and North African Jews, constitute a third major group, although they are sometimes termed Sephardi for liturgical reasons.[32]
Smaller groups include, but are not restricted to, Indian Jews such as the Bene Israel, Bnei Menashe, Cochin Jews, and Bene Ephraim; the Romaniotes of Greece; the Italian Jews (“Italkim” or “Bené Roma”); the Teimanim from Yemen and Oman; various African Jews, including most numerously the Beta Israel of Ethiopia; and Chinese Jews, most notably the Kaifeng Jews, as well as various other distinct but now almost extinct communities.

———————

Now, here’s the point I want to make about the Isaeli government (and this does not apply to the Israeli population at large, though it might apply to some of them):

The Israely government, because it’s interested in Hegemony, purposefully uses the ambiguity and confusion over this (most of the non-Jewish world doesn’t know how to differentiate between all these sub-cultures of Jews and therefore, just like you, thinks of them as one people) to keep people in the dark.

Early on in this conversation, I tried to clue you in to the fact that what’s really going on in Israel/Palestine is not a religious war. That is, it’s not a war of Jew vs. Muslim.
It’s a racial war.

When Israel was created (again) after WWII, it was settled by white europeans escaping from the after effects of the holocaust. They were immigrants to the holy land, from EUROPE. When they got there, they murdered and pillaged and stole from the indigenous people who were already there.

This is the core of the issue.

I know that many of the Israeli’s born there today had no involvement in what their parents/grandparents did when they arrived. But, due to escalation, and two cultures inability to integrate with each other (the situation in Israel is identical to what happened when europeans colonized the Americas), younger generations are indoctrinated by their respective cultures into hating the Other.

Each side picks up the sword of his father, to avenge the crimes done to his ancestors, and the GOVERNMENTS of both sides perpetuate this hatred for profit.

The zionists are hegemonists, and like the military industrial complex in america, they don’t care which side wins, they only care that there will always be customers to buy their guns.

My point is, those in power in Israel are as anti-semitic, as anti-Jewish, as any radical Muslim.
There are two sides to look at this from.
The Israeli government.
And the Israeli people.

The Israeli people (some of them who happen to identify themselves as Jewish), like Americans for example, can be manipulated by their government, so that some of them support their barbaric government, and some oppose it. Some buy into the propaganda, and some do not.

The Israeli government/military itself is wholly evil, and does not work in the best interest of the Israeli people, especially Jews, who suffer in the worlds perspective of them, because the zionist hegemonists have USURPED what it means to be a “Jew”, and therefore Jews the world over suffer for the crimes of the hegemonists, because most of the world does not know that these Israeli hegemonists are trying to give Jews a bad name. They do things in the ‘name’ of Judaism, but they themselves are not Jews.

If you want to help Jewish people, oppose the State of Israel.
If you just like the status quo, then support it.

http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Judaism/Sephardim.html

In World War II, Sephardim in Europe suffered the same fate as other Jews, and most perished during the Holocaust. In a few places, such as Holland, they received some preferential treatment, meaning they were among the last to be liquidated.

After the establishment of the State of Israel, conditions for Jews in many Islamic countries grew increasingly uncomfortable and, in some cases, their lives were threatened. In the 1950’s and 1960’s, tens of thousands of Sephardic Jews fled from North Africa and other countries in the Middle East to settle in Israel, usually being forced by the Muslim authorities to leave behind most of their worldly possessions. Once they came to Israel, most of the Sephardic immigrants were put in transit camps and became dependent on welfare. The conditions in these camps were very bad and it was difficult for the newcomers to work their way out of the lower rung of Israeli society because they had less education than the established Ashkenazic community. Consequently, many worked in blue-collar professions.

See, I’m trying to point out to you that even some jews suffer under Israeli rule.

It’s not as cut and dry as “Israel is Jewish” (and, it’s not as if the Sephardim are completely innocent either).

This whole race/religion thing sucks, and I can’t support any nation that propagate this kind of madness.

In my estimation, the exceptional individuals within such a society are exceptional in SPITE of their culture, not BECAUSE of it.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 27, 2010

@ Abraham

Actually I don’t. I specifically stated that the religious influences from Christian beliefs has an overwhelming influence on American political policy, as well as popular American unquestioning support for the “Religious” state of Israel, irregardless of what the “Secular” reality of Israel’s government policies happen to be.

While I cannot say I agree with iPan’s Zionist conspiracy theories (mainly because I have yet to hear one that actually conforms to realistic human behavior patterns) his statement “Each side picks up the sword of his father, to avenge the crimes done to his ancestors, and the GOVERNMENTS of both sides perpetuate this hatred for profit.” hits the nail on the head squarely. In America, this results in cynical political support for Israel from politicians who know that such support will be “admired” by a large margin of the religious populace, due entirely to Israel’s “mythological” importance to the Christian religion.

That same influence was also rampant at the time of WW2, when FDR was being pressured to enter the war by many religious and political groups to “save the Jew’s”, and it garnered massive support for the founding of Israel for those same “mythological” reasons.

Israel (the mythological state) is to all three major western religions part of their “Origin Mythologies”, and as such, there is a religious “compulsion” to confuse Israel (the secular state) with it’s mythological counterpart, and thus, “make an exception” for anything done BY Israel, while condemning anything done AGAINST Israel.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 27, 2010

Thanks Valkyrie, to admitting to your earlier over-generalizing. I believe it really is best to avoid doing that, what happens when it occurs is that the argument no longer seems based on presenting truthful facts, and thus, the discussion is no longer worth continuing. Right now I see two over-generalizations - 1) iPan’s statement that Israel’s government is “wholly evil” is too shrill in its condemnation for me to even want to engage with him on the topic. 2) Valkyrie is still insisting that the USA’s friendly relationship with Israel is primarily due to politicians sucking up to the Christian fundamentalists. I really don’t think this is true. There are many relationships that the USA has with Israel that have nothing to do with the 2,000 year old Revelations. I live near Silicon Valley which is closely tied in with similar tech startups and business enterprises in Silicon Wadi. My Catholic conservative agricultural parents admire Israelis because they made “the desert bloom” - this admiration for Israel’s transformation of an impoverished land into one with a 1st world lifestyle is quite common with many Americans. There are also 7 million Jews in the USA and many support Israel. These are all significant reasons that Valkyrie has not mentioned because… why? because it doesn’t fit into the anti-culture, anti-religious thesis Valkyrie wants to propose? I haven’t seen a poll, but I believe if there is one, the main reason Americans would give for supporting Israel would not be Revelations.
Be that as it may, I checked in with James Hughes to find out his POV, and he thanked me for instigating a lively discussion, but he also made it clear that he - and what he categorizes as the “H+/technoprogressive/Enlightenment point-of-view” is “opposed to any state being defined by race and/or religion including Israel.” This was interesting for me to find out - I did not know that my viewpoints were actually completely counter to mainstream H+ thought. This made me a bit uncomfortable, because I have been supporting H+ ideas in my writing for quite a while now. But I can’t support the H+ philosophical movement if it refuses to recognize the legitimacy of Israel. Luckily, I found a happy compromise - I am joining Illia’s Israeli TransHumanist organization, where the right of Israel to exist is taken for granted. I will also abandon my membership in other H+ organizations, like WTO, if they insist on a virulent anti-Israel stance. Thanks again, and goodbye again, for the 3rd or 4th time.

 

Valkyrie Ice • • Aug 27, 2010

@Hank

I’m as prone to human fallibility as anyone else, Hank. However, I have FAR more research time into the Christian religion, and it’s psychological domination of American “populist” thought than most, so I am probably far more aware it’s hidden influences.

But yes, “mainstream” Transhumanism is about equality, which is pretty opposed to “Exceptionalism” because exceptionalism is inherently NOT EQUAL. It holds that double standards MUST be applied, with one standard for the “exceptions” and another for the “Not Exceptions”. As such, exceptionalism is bigotry in it’s purest form.

I’m sorry you disagree Hank, but there is no other way of seeing it.

 

CygnusX1 • • Aug 27, 2010

@ Hank..

Well your last comment seems to be somewhat of an overreaction. Why not just convert to Judaism and move to Israel? But seriously, I thought this debate had finished several times now already, and parties agreed to shake hands?

Would it have helped to rename this article “Jewish contributions to transhumanism”? Most likely not, yet I do find that most folks objections towards Israel concern its political attitude and outlook towards the rest of the world, and how they get away with murder, literally, and how the protestations of the both the UN and world nations appear as impotent to influence Israel? Does Israel give a frig about world opinion or indeed any opinion here?

For many years I naively sided with Israel and its problems and striving, Now I see that I was wrong. And neither does this make me sympathetic to Hamas either, I have become indifferent to both sides, (a little like the debate here). Yet I do still respect the Jewish people/race/genome?

1) I never said it was either good or bad. I simply said it occurred.”

#2 is not quite neutral, it dilutes #1 somewhat. However it is ancient history and this is not to gainsay you. The situation in the Mideast is a life-death situation, possibly our greatest existential threat. First thing to do is find a loophole in the 1975 law that prohibits assassinating foreign heads of state: Ahmadinejad should perhaps “accidentally” die on a foreign tour; such would be a humanitarian act, perhaps saving millions of lives, tens of millions of injuries, in the region. Even if—which appears to be the case—Ahmadinejad is bluffing, he will end up carrying the bluff too far, which means no turning back for his regime’s position of starting the very apocalyptic holy war you rightly mention. We safe in the West see the Mideast as a game, something on the screen; even when we visit the Mideast we know we can be evacuated—however to the residents it is no game, but rather it is life or death.
I’m not authoritarian, IMO the Selective Service system ought to be abolished; if it isn’t feasible at this time then all minorities should be exempted. I’m contacting a number of groups to plan protests against conscription: drafting youths is unconscionable—they are not culpable for the foreign affairs mistakes of their elders.

“Would it have helped to rename this article “Jewish contributions to transhumanism”?”

Yes, I think it would have, because then we could focus on and discuss the contributions of Jews all over the world, and not just the Jews that happen to also be Israeli’s.
There are Russian Jews, German Jews, Chinese Jews, African Jews, American Jews.
But this article isn’t about Jewish culture, it’s about Israel, and lends support to the notion that they are a “chosen” people.

postfuturist
“That’s like saying the Eiffel Tower doesn’t have to be French, ipan. “

No it isn’t.
Israel doesn’t have an exclusive claim on Judaism, and there are sects of Jews that openly oppose Israel (like Neturei Karta).

In your example, your using a physical object, one that happens to physically exist in France.

But, there are Jews in many countries across the globe.
Israel doesn’t hold the exclusive right to be called “Jewish”. It doesn’t represent Judaism globally. In my opinion, it actually misrepresents Judaism (for a thorough explanation, see Neturei Karta’s website).

The problem with Israel for the most part, is all the foreign white people there, regardless of what their religion is.

 

iPan • • Aug 27, 2010

I would edit my last comment to add this bit, but that is not available here.

“Would it have helped to rename this article “Jewish contributions to transhumanism”?”

Yes.
For example, had the article gone by this title (and actually lived up to it), then one of the first things I would have mentioned is the Kosher laws on the humane treatment of animals, something I have deep respect for, and that I think also is relevant to transhumanism.

“Just have to intervene again. It is absolutely curious that the “techno-progressive” would cite Neturei Karta as an ally, one of the most (if not the most) backward techno-phobic and xeno-phobic sects of Judaism.”

Let me clarify a few things.
I bring up Neturei Karta to make the point that Judaism is not united under Israel, and that there are Jews who oppose the State.
I certainly don’t agree wholesale with everything Neturei Karta may or may not believe in.

A quick note about my feelings on religion. I feel that ALL religions are crackpots. That is, I think religion itself is a form of insanity. Generally, I don’t treat any religion differently from another in this judgement, however, I do note differences in how ‘weird’ certain religions are compared to another. For example, Christianity, between the three Judeo based religions, is the weirdest. Hands down. They are the nuttiest. And then there are religions, like the Church of Scientology, the Raelians, Mormons, and many more that take the cake even from Christianity.

I resent you implying Neturei Karta as an “ally” of mine, if only because it’s inaccurate. I’ve used them as a reference (for the reasons I stated above).

The one thing I like about Neturei Karta is that they are disabusing people of the idea that Israel “is” Judaism. They are opposed to the State of Israel, not to Jewish people, or even Israeli people.

I actually associate myself more closely with anarchism (despite the term having negative connotations in modern times…though if it’s easier on the ears, you can call it ‘autonomous egalitarianism’), and my problem with Israel is the same problem I have with all governments and forms of authoritarianism, regardless of nationality, ethnicity, or religion.
The criticisms I apply to Israel are the same criticisms I apply to America, and to Saudi Arabia, and North Korea (and so many others that I don’t want to take the space to list them all).

The thing about Israel, is that it is involved in a global campaign to confuse and cause cognitive dissonance over what’s really happening. Their propaganda machine is twisting people’s minds.

“Israel fired white phosporous at civilians!”
“But 6 million Jews died in the holocaust!”

“Israel killed aid workers!”
“But 6 million Jews died in the holocaust!”

See, I’m tired of the West giving them carte blanche because “6 million Jews died in the holocaust”.

Israel should be held accountable for it’s crimes against humanity and it’s war crimes.

(and so should American politicians)
(and so should Iranian politicians)
(and so should Chinese politicians)

 

Hank Pellissier • • Aug 28, 2010

iPan—yes I am back again, because you need to be critiqued on using Neturei Karta to back up your ideas. For readers who don’t know who Neturei Karta is, they are an anti-Zionist Orthodox group that is so extreme they have been “excommunicated” by other anti-Zionist groups. Neturei Karta has attended Holocaust denial meetings in Iran, they publicly mourned Arafat’s death (for reasons that I will explain later), they agree with Ahmadinejad’s desire to wipe Israel off the map, etc. They are nutjobs and they have also been PAID to conduct their anti-Israel activities—five years ago check receipts totalling up to $55,00 were found, Arafat was paying Neturei Karta for their activities, plus the head Neturei Karta rabbi was offered positions in future governments for his anti-Zionist displays. You could have mentioned this when you used Neturei Karta as an example, but you didn’t, either because you don’t know that much about them, or you decided not to mention it because it was counter-productive to your thesis. If you chose to do the latter, you’re being an irresponsible reporter. If you’re only guilty of the former, you’re just an ignorant reporter. If you want to present yourself as an informed person who has some relevant information to offer other informed people in a discussion, you need to actually be… an informed person. Otherwise you run the risk of appearing to be just an over-exaggerating, generalizing, pontificator of your personal opinions who imparts fragments of incomplete and perhaps totally invalid information. Your one point is accurate - yes, there are anti-Zionist groups in Israel, Many of them. We do all know that. But I suspect that you have only a flimsy knowledge of Neturei Karta. You would have been better off using many other saner Orthodox groups to buttress your contention.
I also want to tell you that I used to be an “anarchist” too but I got over it. I don’t find that stance to be politically realistic - It might be a simple and enjoyable revolutionary way for you to view the world, and that’s exactly why you shouldn’t do it. You need to think more instead of constricting yourself with your new-found ideology. I don’t know who you are, but my niece was also a pissed-off anarchist from the age of 20-27. Then she got over it. Best of luck.

 

ipan • • Aug 28, 2010

I’m going to do my best to address each point, one at a time.

“For readers who don’t know who Neturei Karta is, they are an anti-Zionist Orthodox group that is so extreme they have been “excommunicated” by other anti-Zionist groups.”

I’m not sure “excommunication” is relevant. The Pope has excommunicated many people and countries throughout history.
So, let’s take a deeper look.
(I did some more follow up reading after your post)

“Neturei Karta has attended Holocaust denial meetings in Iran”

Indeed they have.
I found this, from Aharon Cohen of Neturei Karta:
“There is no question that there was a Holocaust and gas chambers. There are too many eyewitnesses.”
and
“My friends I wish to end with the prayer that the underlying cause of strife and bloodshed in the Middle East, namely, the State known as ‘Israel’, be totally and peacefully dissolved.”

(there’s more, and I’m not leaving it out to omit any kind of context, and I certainly don’t agree with every thing he says…but I included this, precisely because you mention them attending Holocaust denial conventions - but you don’t mention anything they actually said there.
That would be like me insinuating Clinton is a Communist, because he took a trip to China to talk to it’s leaders.
Just because they were there, present at those meetings, does not mean they themselves deny the Holocaust, therefore I find your framing of it to be disingenuous.)

“they publicly mourned Arafat’s death”

All human life is valuable (unless your a sociopath), so why shouldn’t they mourn someone’s death?
This seems calloused to me.
You may not like or agree with Arafat (I know I don’t), but I wouldn’t put it the way you do, to criticize someone for mourning the death of another human being.

“they agree with Ahmadinejad’s desire to wipe Israel off the map”

I’ll repaste this quote, as pertaining to Neturei Karta:

“My friends I wish to end with the prayer that the underlying cause of strife and bloodshed in the Middle East, namely, the State known as ‘Israel’, be totally and peacefully dissolved.”

He says it should be PEACEFULLY dissolved. Not wiped off the map.

Also, I think Imadinnersalad’s rhetoric is just saber rattling, he’s just puffing up his chest to look all bad ass to his own country. I don’t think he has any real plans to “wipe Israel off the map”.

“They are nutjobs and they have also been PAID to conduct their anti-Israel activities”

Well, I think further investigation could be done about this, but from what I’ve been able to find so far, they were paid relatively small amounts (you should look at how much Sarah Palin was paid to speak at a University). Public figures, politicians, and diplomats have expenses. The airlines don’t let them fly free (at least not yet).
Now, I’m not saying I know what that money is being used for, all I’m saying is that all public figures are funded from somewhere, by someone. They need to funds to do what they do.
Churches ask for donations.
Governments collect taxes.
So, I’d like to look into this further, and I’d like you to provide substantial links to more information on exactly what that money was used for, and how much over how long.

“plus the head Neturei Karta rabbi was offered positions in future governments for his anti-Zionist displays”

Links?

“You could have mentioned this when you used Neturei Karta as an example, but you didn’t, either because you don’t know that much about them, or you decided not to mention it because it was counter-productive to your thesis.”

I used Neturei Karta as one of the most visible examples to illustrate the fact that Israel doesn’t represent all of Judaism.
I thought I made it clear that there is much they have to say that I personally disagree with.
For example, they talk about how Jews cannot enter Israel because God exiled them. This argument is entirely dependent on believing in their religion in the first place, which I don’t, so I find that particular stance kinda crazy.
But, it’s irrelevant to the point about how Israel itself was founded by european white imperialism.
The issue doesn’t revolve around their religion, it revolves around the fact that all the people who settled Israel after WWII were white european immigrants, and they stole land from the indigenous population, murdered it’s inhabitants, created an apartheid state, and inflict constant brutality on them.

See, I kinda figured that my caveat about how I feel about religion in one of my above comments was enough to stave off this kind of reactionary bile from you.
I thought I made it clear, that personally, I think all religious people are nutters, and I don’t share many of their beliefs.
This is about political zionism, not someone’s crackpot theories about God (which they are welcome to, as long as they don’t intrude on my freedom).

“Your one point is accurate - yes, there are anti-Zionist groups in Israel, Many of them. We do all know that.”

That in fact, is my ONE point.
You say you know it, but you don’t acknowledge it.
Not just anti-Zionist groups, but Jewish anti-Zionist groups. The whole point is that even Jews aren’t united under Israel, so Israel doesn’t represent all of Judaism worldwide.

“I also want to tell you that I used to be an “anarchist” too but I got over it. I don’t find that stance to be politically realistic - It might be a simple and enjoyable revolutionary way for you to view the world, and that’s exactly why you shouldn’t do it. You need to think more instead of constricting yourself with your new-found ideology. I don’t know who you are, but my niece was also a pissed-off anarchist from the age of 20-27. Then she got over it. Best of luck. “

I doubt you were ever serious about anarchism. If you were, you’d realize that it’s the highest ethical position one could take.

The conviction to NEVER exercise authority over another human being cannot be argued to be less ethical.
Your “political realism” is going to land you in a nuclear winter.

One last note:
I don’t appreciate your disrespectful tone in this last reply.
As far as I can tell, I’ve been very tactful, despite my strong feelings against Authoritarianism.
I think maybe you stepped just a little bit over the line this time.

You may disagree with their perspective, but as far as I can tell, Neturei Karta members haven’t killed anyone yet, and that makes them more blameless than Israel.

A goldmine for critical and cultural theorists everywhere! Transhumanists compare Israel to Transhumanism! I’m surprised no one has made this argument before - or perhaps somebody has. Of particular pleasurable to surf the waves of narrative reinforcement - a questionable ‘sci-fi scenario’ posed by the author (which, if it refers to the Holocaust at all, places it before Theodore Hertzel) prompts an article which recursively justifies itself. On a meta-level, the rhetorical similarities in Transhuman and Israeli discourse are captured in this article. Both lay claim, to on some level, existing outside-of or in-spite-of history, and both have a complex relationship to said history - in Israel and in the debate surrounding Israel, History is ideologically and politically loaded. Israelis and their country can too easily become a symbol subject to the desires of whomever deploys them in argument. In Israel, one can see the Present acting on the Past in its own interests, while simultaneously the Past shapes the Futures which those actors can foresee. Where in this semiotic jungle does human reality survive? Obviously, in transhumanism. Transhumanism hasn’t yet accrued the historical baggage (rhymes with damage, gladness, and sadness) that Israel has, and of course their paradoxical determination is to avoid it altogether, but Google, transhumanisms quiet vanguard, has in its brief existence gathered both controversy and acclaim to ornament its phenomenal success. In fact, someone should write a paper comparing Israel and Google! It’d be great PR for Israeli hi-tech.

To the moderator - I consider this post on-topic, as I am engaging in a critique of cyber-rhetoric, an issue certainly relevant to transhumanism (technically, wouldn’t anything ‘humanist’ be relevant to the ‘transhuman’?). Also, by locating the human encrusted within the information system we know as ‘language’ or ‘text,’ I am examining a virtualization of what a trans-human could be: consciousness, clearly present in said article by ‘Hank’, embodied (if that could said to be the right term) within an information system.

I don’t think zeroreference would have made this conditional accusation if he had known of the Chmielnitzki Massacres.

Now that the transvestite sadist (nothing wrong with transvestitism; yet sadism, real torture, is wrong) in Tripoli in on his way out, it is time to consider the future of Mideast/ N. Africa. I’m not anti-Arab/Shiite, because for one, Islamics in America have felt obligated to treat outsiders in a less pushy manner than Christians. And of far more significance: when you examine how Arab/Shiites were treated as proxies by the big powers, you realize their position is not all based on victimology—anymore than is Israel’s. Also, I do not approve of how Israel conscripts its citizens. But that’s their business.
Today peace in the Mideast has to be fast-tracked; merely to overthrow feudalist remnants is not enough—to say the least. Don’t know what to do, however do know it is going to be dicey.

People get violent when opportunities open up but they don’t know what to do with them.

i’m 31, i’ve been reading about transhumanism and negative utilitarianism for year.

i’ve seen this movement morph into years. and i’m laughing in a good way.

the lengthy comment thread above is a testament to people using their brains. what we, techno-humanists, appreciate is the use of intelligence in a cooperative manner.

of course, jews have been around far longer than technohumanism, and far longer even than the modern state of israel of which i am so proud. and during that time, jews as different peoples, and ashkenazi jews as a people in particular, have developed a culture that embraces reading, discusssion, philosophy etc…...

to any people out there uncomfortable with those jews who say ‘jews are smarter’, i will tell you we are not . but it is a fact that ‘we’ write more books , read more, and use our brains more because it is our culture and our value for the brain and the heart, rather than the fist.

it is no surprise that the state of israel, hewed in by its enemies, should be so succesful at using violence. why? because the language of violence has shifted from pure numbers to technology and logistics, things which, jews, as a people whose culture is centered on secular and religious intellectual pursuit, succeed at. we succeed at technology and humanism because we love using our brains.

the brain is a muscle. it gets stronger with use. it makes no difference who is ‘smarter’ , it makes all the difference who uses their brain the most and, whoever does, will in the short run help use technology to fight war, but in the long run, like einstein said,

will bring world peace. using your brain will bring world peace EVENTUALLY. it is a long process , and it will take hundreds if not thousands of years. and until then, those who think, and who read and write, will harness technology for many reasons, to better themselves , to get more power of violent weapons, etc….
the nation-state and the practical realities of man’s suffering in light of a chaotic world possessing famine, disease, random violent behavior (crime that is ===non-national but local in ALL nations) , organized criminal behavior, jealousy,
etc….

the well spring of human weakness and suffering will continue to drive the difficulty of global national politics as the non-political people’s of the world ( the average people ) work hard building the technology and humanist framework that is necessary for getting us to world peace.

as for the comments above—-the comments addressing political undertones of an article aimed at looking for the best in man while putting politics aside, i have this to say:

people who condemn israel for being a colonialist leftover, without reading the history of the middle east, understanding how no nation is without it’s false origin, are lying to themselves. and people who think israel is south africa , may have some valid points, but they dont’ understand that zionists are not going to leave without creating a massive nuclear mess.

to those people that condemn every-country in the middle east for being messed up, well, the world is messy, yes even america is very messy, and it is of no use to go around condemning everyone and being angry all the time.

the jews are trying to make the world a better place, but that doesn’t mean the legacy of a thousand years as a minority, of the holocaust, is going to be forgotten and that israel will simply be abandoned by intimidating it. american jews and jews all over the world will not abandon their brethren in israel simply because there are policy disputes. there is only really ONE policy at stake. and that is whether or not israel should exist. if it should than it has the existential right to defend itself. i believe in the policy of existence, the policy of zionism, and so do many people of all ethical , ethnic, and religious, colors. do i share the same philosophy as everyone who is zionist, no. i find many of them strange bedfellows ( particularly the religious american right comprised of apocalyptic baptists who are proudly ‘anti-science’ and who openly reject evolution——these are not people who are taking the world where it needs to go right now )

there remains tribalism in the world—and it will continue for the forseeable future . neo-futurists and transhumanists need to come to terms with this fact and learn to accept this on some level. are the jews tribalists? sure. is everyone else? of course. are the jews trying to create new religions to make the world peacefull, yes!!! and have we done this before , yea, jesus was a jew. and as much as some jews resent their historical treatment by christians. it is the development of christianity over 2000 years that brought us to this very point where we are now. this is a good point. it is the only point. it is where we must be and where we are. christians, jews, muslims, buddhists, aetheists, communists, and capitalists…..all of these people can be transhumanist.

contradictions are what allow human beings to trancend the narrow world they were born with, and to go beyond. to a better world tomorrow. in jewish prayer, the saying, bshana’ ha ba’ah bi’ yerooshalyim, means “in the year to come in jerusalem” . the phrase is key saying in our culture and it always meant to be spoken as a phrase of hope. looking forward. we are in jerusalem now. maybe not with the messiah ( if you believe in that sort of thing ) , but we are there none-theless. so what is next? what is the next hope?

perhaps the next hope is a new religion, a new philosophy . maybe some jews like hank will play a special role in making it happen. we did it once, maybe now’s the second time?

here’s to transhumanism being a positive force to help mankind. a force to break down all national racial and religious lines, and a force which people of all nations, ethnicities, and religions can cooperate together to build up together, to commune and to understand and tolerate one another.

leh’chaim.

 

Hank Pellissier • • Sep 4, 2011

@ zeev - thanks for writing in this great posting. BTW, I am not jewish. Not remotely so. Your remarks are wonderful, I particularly like your comment that transhumanists need to understand that tribalism isn’t going to simply disappear anytime soon. BTW - I might be going to a Sci Fi and Transhumanist festival in Tel Aviv in October - look me up and say HI.

 

zeev • • Sep 4, 2011

hank. i did not think you were jewish 😊.
just jew friendly, which i appreciate. i am jewish.
i have studied budhissm, spent a lot of time in catholic churches, i’ve been baptised for fun and i like religion.

it took years of being a so called aetheist and talking to communists and technoutopians, and other people to realize that the old model of seeing religion as only an opiate——- was based on a world where religion and state were the only fundamental models of social action, and where ‘philosophy’ was relegated to academia.

reglion has good parts. and new religions are desperately needed to deal with our new technologies.

——as for tel aviv. my sister is there, but i rarely visit. maybe this year will be different.

thanks you for your writing, so far i’ve like it a good deal.
i found this article and then read 4 of your others , they were all good.

i found the one on brazil very interesting but i didn’t comment.
funnily enough, you could spend your whole career on wall street analyzing brazil for a major investment bank. ===that was the one article of yours that seemed to be too involved in the real world of economics 😊 precisely why i liked it.
i have very eclectic taste. i am a deep believer in technology , almost being fundamentalist about it. but fundamentally, the most advanced technology we have is ourselves. mankind, and above all, it is studying this technology that will allow us to predict where our computers, medicine, communications, weapons, and even genetic/pharmocological engineering of ourselves and our personalities ( david pearce is keen on biopsychiatric utopianism) , will take us.

good luck hank!maybe i’ll see you in tel aviv.

Hank,

If you’re going to be in Tel Aviv, I think you should check out the mass protests going on there. It would be wonderful to get some interviews of those protesting.

No amount of achievements in ingenuity can act as atonement for
war crimes, ethnic cleansing , wholesale murders of innocent children or genocides. What Israel is doing is indefensible, even I encourage people not to try.

As a comparison, I loathe Islamic culture, especially the orthodox kind. I don’t know what I know am now allowed to loathe in Israeli society, but the thing I have come to viciously hate feels very familiar to me. It’s a particular kind of self-righteous, self-validating and psychopathic culture that was a little more visible in Europe about three quarters of a century ago. As far as I am concerned there is a sickness and a depravity in the middle east, and despite the ingenuity visible in Israel, the rotting heart at the knesset and the poison in Israeli society is uncannily akin to the same exhibited by some in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Al Quaida or the likes of ISIS.

Habitual murderers do as they do. They simply seem to be incapable of anything else. Must be something in the soil there, I suppose.

I suppose you were a little ignorant Hank, back in august 2010. Let’s hope you learned.

Let me say it in another way - I am losing faith in Transhuman ideals. I sometimes thing that the wonderful future we might inherit is something to be earned, by love, by forgiveness, by generosity, by patience. If that’s the case, well, I have been seeing so much filth that increasingly the human race is becoming deserving of quite another future.

Prove me wrong

Brandeis / Frank

Life of the First Jewish u.s. supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis: exploring “Privacy issues” and Ancestral Cultic Connections

Louis Brandeis was a descendant of one of the prominent shabbatean/Frankist families of Prague. They did not follow Frank’s example of conversion to Islam or Catholicism, but maintained a Jewish identity, though very detached from Jewish ritual and practice.

His mother Frederika Dembitz Goldmark brandeis “disdained formal religious ceremonies and encouraged her children to value ethical teachings of religion, including Judaism, while eschewing the age-old rituals.” Brandeis grew up in the family environment, where, though born a Jew, he was not raised as a Jew. In fact, he celebrated Christmas, but not the Jewish holidays; neither did he keep the kosher laws, or the sabbath. He was very disengaged from Jewish practice.

Brandeis’s maternal uncle, Gottlieb Wehle, wrote an ethical will in which he exhorts members of his family to “respect their ancestors’ tradition of antinomian disdain for the normative Judaism of traditional rabbis.” This was perhaps a reaction to the family’s waning allegiance to the Frank sect. It was Justice Brandeis’s relatives, who revealed a copy of a portion of this will to Gershom scholem, who published it.

In fact, Brandeis manifested a great interest in his mother’s background as evidenced by his insistence that she write down the history of the family, which she did. Although she never clearly expressed her Frankist background, she did allude to it. In her letters she gives some insight into why Louis Brandeis was so divorced from traditional Judaism. The environment as presented in her letters in which she detailed her family background evinces an anti-traditional atmosphere.

It harkened back to a time in Prague when it was normative to be Jewish ethnically, German culturally, and Austrian politically. Yet, the Brandeis family, obviously influenced by the Frankist sect, had shunned their Jewishness and failed to expose their son Louis to anything more than the vagaries of Jewish identity.

Brandeis’s mother gave him a copy of a portrait of Eva Frank (who was Jacob Frank’s daughter and his spiritual successor upon his death), which was handed down and reserved for those who were privileged descendants of Frankists.

This generation of Frankists had thrown off and/or forgotten the deviant ways of the founder; previous generations had actually destroyed the written remnants of their affiliation with the sect, even going door to door to collect any memoirs or written traces of the sect, so that they could discard the embarrassing “evidence.”

They continued, however, to maintain a certain elitist pride about being connected to the sect’s past. This pride was reflected in Brandeis’s mother’s letters to her son; her descriptions of the close-knit community bespeak the Frankist sect in clandestine terms. Hence, we know that Louis Brandeis knew of this “ghost in the closet,” that would not be wise to profess openly. This may have made him particularly sensitive about the importance of the right to privacy (which he defined in his co-authored Right to Privacy article as the right to an “inviolate personality”) and the right to speak one’s conscience.

Louis Brandeis took his second cousin, Alice, as his bride, a practice not uncommon for Jewish people and Frankists during this era. she too was a descendant of the circle of crypto-Frankist Jews, and was undoubtedly aware of the secret of the family’s past.

It is well settled that people possess learned traits, and in this respect there is much transfer from parent to child. For example, Holocaust survivors’ children often carry the scars and the effects of growing up in a home dominated by the fallout of the traumatic impact of the Holocaust on their parents. This may manifest itself in a variety of ingrained responses that are displayed throughout life; for example, paranoia, phobias, withdrawal, and many other traits. It is not far-fetched to speculate that Louis brandeis’
s personality was partly shaped by the secret in the closet that was possessed, and even repressed, by his parents who came to the U.S. to start a new life, obviously free of cultic influence.

Frankfurt at the time was the headquarters of the Jesuit, Adam Weishaupt, founder of the Illuminati, as well as Rothschild Brothers' financial empire. This is worth repeating: Frankfurt was the birthplace of both the Illuminati and the Rothschild empire. When Jacob Frank entered the city, the alliance between the two had already begun.

Weishaupt provided the conspiratorial resources of the Jesuit Order, while the Rothschilds contributed the money. What was missing was a means to spread the agenda of the Illuminati and that the Frankists added with their network of agents throughout the Christian and Islamic worlds. Jacob Frank became instantly wealthy because he was given a nice handout by the Rothschilds of Frankfurt. There is no other explanation.

Again, I continue to be very moved by the testimony of elite Dutch banker, Ronald Bernard and his insider perspective about the handful of Satanists, who manage to control much of the world through finance, confirming the speculations of many outside investigators over the years. This post, today intends to take Bernard's testimony a few steps further.

I had never heard the word "Sabbatean" until last Fall, when I was editing a foundational booklet, "The Right to Issue" about the Central Banking System, written by William Calder. He'd told me that he'd personally met a few of the top members of the "Committee" who control the Bank of International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, considered to be the Central Bank of Central Banks.

Calder said that ALL members at the top of the hierarchical structure of the Committee were Sabbateans and that they were very preoccupied with their bloodlines. These individuals were not free to marry without the approval of the entire Committee. He has told me that Jared Kushner is a direct relation of top members of the Committee.

It took me some time but I've finally found what I think is an even-handed, scholarly and accurate account of the history and the beliefs of the Sabbateans, in this interview with Dr. Rabbi Marvin Antelman by Tamar Yonah of Israel National Radio, recorded back in 2006.

I will reiterate that the opinions expressed in this article are not my own; they are the opinions of rabbi Marvin Antelman, Henry Makow and Clifford Shack, all of whom are Jewish scholars.

Antelman is a rabbi and a chemist, author of the 'Encylopedia of Electro- Chemical Potentials' and of the 'Encyclopedia of Thermo-Plastic Materials'. He is a holder of numerous patents related to these topics.

However, he may be most well-known for his two-volume book, 'To Eliminate the Opiate,' an exposé of the Secret Societies who control the world and who have scapegoated the Jewish people in the process.

Antelman explains how the Sabbatean-Frankist apostate cult sprang from a Jewish community within the Ottoman Empire during the 1600s and it quickly spread to Eastern Europe.

The fundamental principle of the Sabbatean-Frankists was/is(?) the belief that the Messiah would return either when all people had become good or when all people had become bad. It was the reasoning of the Sabbateans that it would be easier to hasten the arrival of the Messiah by pursuing the dark path, so they set about inverting the the practices of their own faith, with the ostensible purpose of precipitating the return of the Messiah.

Their leader, Shabbatai Zevi (aka Tzvi), born in Izmir, Turkey (the city formerly known as Smyrna) was believed to be the Messiah by his followers and he became so influential that the Ottoman sultan forced Zevi to convert to Islam. According to Canadian-Jewish author, Henry Makow, "After his 'conversion,' over a million followers, who later included financiers like the Rothschilds, imitated his example. But they didn't just pretend to be Muslims or Christians. They pretended to be Jews as well. They were the forebears of the Illuminati and Communism."

In 1756, the Frankists (successors of the Sabbateans) were excommunicated by establishment rabbis for their heretical and frankly Satanic practices but they re- emerged under numerous stealthy guises, as the leaders of both the Reform AND Conservative (Hasidic) Jewish movements, as explained here by Antelman. Previously, Judaism had consisted in followers of the Torah but now, these wedges had been inserted into the Jewish faith.

The largest Hasidic sect today is called Satmar and it is based in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It is known for its ultra-Orthodoxy and its opposition to Zionism. Many Reform Jews share the latter view. (Rabbi Marvin Antelman does not and is a hardcore Zionist).

An interesting aside here, is that Donald Trump's son-in-law and his family, despite dressing like typical rich people, they are members of the Chabad-Lubavitch Hasidic movement, which, similarly to the Sabbateans, claim to have been led by "the Messiah" (Moshiach), one Menachem Mendel Schneerson, who although deceased since 1994, is still revered by many as the leader of the Chabad movement.

There is a vociferous group in Israel who do not consider Chabad's ideology to be Jewish. They consider Chabad to be a white collar criminal organization, who engage in financial fraud, tax evasion, money-laundering, as well as being linked to several child abuse cases. Chabad is based in Crown Heights, Brooklyn and they are distinguished for their "outreach" of non-affiliated Jews.

I have not been able to find any information about the history of the Kushner family with Chabad but it is possible that they converted relatively recently. Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump's association with Chabad may become more meaningful, as I continue to quote here from Henry Makow: "Communist defector Bella Dodd revealed that during the 1930's the Communist Party had 1,100 members join the Catholic Priesthood. They became Bishops, Cardinals and Popes. [Remember, according to Makow, Communism is an invention of the Sabbateans]. "By adopting this chameleon strategy, this Satanic cult infiltrated and subverted most governments and religions, and established an invisible tyranny without drawing much attention.

In the words of the gifted Jewish researcher Clifford Shack, 'Through infiltration, stealth and cunning, this invisible network has come to rule us all. Forty-one years after Shabbatai Zevi's death, in 1717, they would infiltrate Masonry guilds in England and establish Freemasonry... [Zevi's successor] Jacob Frank would have a great impact on the inner core of Freemasonry known as the Illuminati, formed in 1776. Freemasonry would become the hidden force behind events like the [American, French and Russian] revolutions, the creations of the UN and Israel, both World Wars (including the Holocaust!), and the assassinations of the Kennedy brothers who, together with their father, tried to thwart the efforts of the network on American soil.'"

From Cybernetics to Littleton:

https://larouchepub.com/other/2000/2718_cybernetics_to_littleton.html
Techniques of Mind Control
by Jeffrey Steinberg

The $9 billion a year video-game industry in America, which contributed mightily to the carnage at Littleton, Paducah, and Jonesboro, is far more than the mere commercial exploitation of techniques and technologies developed as "legitimate" training instruments for the military and law enforcement agencies. To understand the roots of this new form of "Manchurian Candidate" programmed terrorism, it is necessary to go back to World War II and the immediate postwar period, when there was a concerted effort launched, by the Frankfurt School and the London Tavistock Institute, to use the Marxist/Freudian perversion of psychology and other social sciences, as instruments for mass social control and brainwashing. The two pillars of the assault on the American intellectual tradition were cybernetics and the drug counterculture.

At that time, a number of prominent social scientists openly spelled out their goal, of using the wartime-tested techniques of mass psychological manipulation, to pervert and control the American people. And in most instances, their emphasis was on children, and the need to destroy the fabric of family life.

Lord Bertrand Russell, who joined with the Frankfurt School in this effort at mass social engineering, spilled the beans, in his 1951 book, The Impact of Science on Society. He wrote:

"Physiology and psychology afford fields for scientific technique which still await development. Two great men, Pavlov and Freud, have laid the foundation. I do not accept the view that they are in any essential conflict, but what structure will be built on their foundations is still in doubt. I think the subject which will be of most importance politically is mass psychology. . . . Its importance has been enormously increased by the growth of modern methods of propaganda. Of these the most influential is what is called `education.' Religion plays a part, though a diminishing one; the press, the cinema, and the radio play an increasing part. . . . It may be hoped that in time anybody will be able to persuade anybody of anything if he can catch the patient young and is provided by the State with money and equipment."

Russell continued, "The subject will make great strides when it is taken up by scientists under a scientific dictatorship. . . . The social psychologists of the future will have a number of classes of school children on whom they will try different methods of producing an unshakable conviction that snow is black. Various results will soon be arrived at. First, that the influence of home is obstructive. Second, that not much can be done unless indoctrination begins before the age of ten. Third, that verses set to music and repeatedly intoned are very effective. Fourth, that the opinion that snow is white must be held to show a morbid taste for eccentricity. But I anticipate. It is for future scientists to make these maxims precise and discover exactly how much it costs per head to make children believe that snow is black, and how much less it would cost to make them believe it is dark gray."

Russell concluded with a warning: "Although this science will be diligently studied, it will be rigidly confined to the governing class. The populace will not be allowed to know how its convictions were generated. When the technique has been perfected, every government that has been in charge of education for a generation will be able to control its subjects securely without the need of armies or policemen."

Russell and the `Lethal Chamber'
Russell had been working on the concept of the scientific dictatorship for decades. In his 1931 book, The Scientific Outlook, he had devoted a chapter to "Education in a Scientific Society." Here, he was equally blunt about his oligarchical totalitarian vision. Drawing the parallel to the two levels of education provided by the Jesuits, Russell asserted: "In like manner, the scientific rulers will provide one kind of education for ordinary men and women, and another for those who are to become holders of scientific power. Ordinary men and women will be expected to be docile, industrious, punctual, thoughtless, and contented. Of these qualities probably contentment will be considered the most important. In order to produce it, all the researches of psycho-analysis, behaviourism, and biochemistry will be brought into play. . . . All the boys and girls will learn from an early age to be what is called `co-operative,' i.e., to do exactly what everybody is doing. Initiative will be discouraged in these children, and insubordination, without being punished, will be scientifically trained out of them."

For the children chosen to be among the scientific ruling class, education was to be quite different. "Except for the one matter of loyalty to the world State and to their own order," Russell explained, "members of the governing class will be encouraged to be adventurous and full of initiative. It will be recognized that it is their business to improve scientific technique, and to keep the manual workers contented by means of continual new amusements."

Russell, however, added one very strong caveat. "On those rare occasions," he warned, "when a boy or girl who has passed the age at which it is usual to determine social status shows such marked ability as to seem the intellectual equal of the rulers, a difficult situation will arise, requiring serious consideration. If the youth is content to abandon his previous associates and to throw in his lot whole-heartedly with the rulers, he may, after suitable tests, be promoted, but if he shows any regrettable solidarity with his previous associates, the rulers will reluctantly conclude that there is nothing to be done with him except to send him to the lethal chamber before his ill-disciplined intelligence has had time to spread revolt. This will be a painful duty to the rulers, but I think they will not shrink from performing it."

Huxley's `Concentration Camp of the Mind'
Russell's blunt description of a "scientific dictatorship" was matched by the account of Aldous Huxley, author of the utopian tract Brave New World, in a speech on the U.S. State Department's Voice of America, in 1961, of a world of pharmacologically manipulated slaves, living in a "concentration camp of the mind," enhanced by propaganda and psychotropic drugs, learning to "love their servitude," and abandoning all will to resist. "This," Huxley concluded, "is the final revolution."

Speaking at the California Medical School in San Francisco, Huxley announced: "There will be in the next generation or so a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak. Producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda, or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution."

Huxley's cohort in the 1950s experimentation with psychotropic drugs, Dr. Timothy Leary, of Harvard University's Psychology Department, provided another glimpse into the perverted minds of the Russell/Huxley/Frankfurt School crowd, in his autobiographical account of the Harvard University Psychedelic Drug Project, Flashback. Leary quoted Huxley: "These brain drugs, mass produced in the laboratories, will bring about vast changes in society. This will happen with or without you or me. All we can do is spread the word. The obstacle to this evolution, Timothy, is the Bible." Leary then added: "We had run up against the Judeo-Christian commitment to one God, one religion, one reality, that has cursed Europe for centuries and America since our founding days. Drugs that open the mind to multiple realities inevitably lead to a polytheistic view of the universe. We sensed that the time for a new humanist religion based on intelligence, good-natured pluralism and scientific paganism had arrived."

As these monstrous notions of mass social engineering were being presented as the "humanistic" alternative to world war in the age of the atomic and hydrogen bomb, two crucial projects were being launched, that would shape the implementation of this Brave New World, and bring us, today, to the world of Littleton, Paducah, Jonesboro, Doom, Quake, and Duke Nukem.

The Authoritarian Personality
The first of the two projects was launched in January 1943, by a team of three social psychologists at the University of California at Berkeley, Else Frenkel-Brunswik (a founding member of the Frankfurt Institute for Social Research, known as the "Frankfurt School"), Daniel J. Levinson, and R. Nevitt Sanford. What started out as a modest $500 grant to study the roots of anti-Semitism, would soon mushroom into the biggest mass social-profiling project ever undertaken in America, up until that time.

In May 1944, the American Jewish Committee established a Department of Scientific Research, which was headed by Frankfurt School director Max Horkheimer. Horkheimer established a project, called Studies in Prejudice, with generous funding from the AJC and other agencies, including the Rockefeller foundations. The Studies in Prejudice offered employment to a number of Frankfurt School members who, for various reasons, were not coopted directly into the war effort (for example, Herbert Marcuse and Franz Neumann were brought into the Research and Analysis Section of the Office of Strategic Services, or OSS, the forerunner to today's Central Intelligence Agency). Hedda Massing, Marie Jahoda, Morris Janowitz, and Theodor W. Adorno all worked on the Studies, and, under Horkheimer's direction, they all formally reconstituted the International Institute of Social Research, the transplanted incarnation of the original Frankfurt School of Weimar Germany.

The most significant of the five Studies in Prejudice, produced for the AJC during 1944-50, was The Authoritarian Personality (New York: Harper, 1950). Authors Adorno, Frenkel-Brunswik, Levinson, and Sanford assembled a large research team from the Berkeley Public Opinion Study and the International Institute of Social Research, to conduct thousands of interviews of Americans, to profile their allegedly deep-seated tendencies toward authoritarianism, prejudice, and anti-Semitism. Dr. William Morrow, the leading protégé of Dr. Kurt Lewin, who was one key, bridge figure between the Frankfurt School and the Tavistock Institute, was a research director for the Authoritarian Personality project.

The study was an exercise in self-fulfilling prophecy and Marxist/Freudian self-delusion. Long before the first survey questionnaire was drafted, Horkheimer and Adorno had written exhaustively about the "authoritarian" character of the American nuclear family, about the "problem" of the American people's belief in a transcendent monotheistic God, and about the underlying fascist character of all forms of American patriotism. They "cooked" the survey data, in advance, by devising a series of scales, purporting to measure the American population's tendency toward anti-Semitism, ethnocentricity, anti-democratic ideology, and, ultimately, fascism. Not surprisingly, the research team found the American public "guilty as charged," and produced dire warnings that, unless a dramatic overhaul of the American ideology and mass culture were carried out, America would soon emerge as a Fourth Reich, repeating the horrors of Hitler on an even grander scale.

The authors of The Authoritarian Personality let it all hang out in the concluding chapter of the book, in which they summarized their findings and spelled out their recipe for social transformation:

"It seems obvious, that the modification of the potentially fascist structure cannot be achieved by psychological means alone. The task is comparable to that of eliminating neurosis, or delinquency, or nationalism from the world. These are products of the total organization of society and are to be changed only as that society is changed. It is not for the psychologist to say how such changes are to be brought about. The problem is one which requires the efforts of all social scientists. All that we would insist upon is that in the councils or round tables where the problem is considered and action planned the psychologist should have a voice. We believe that the scientific understanding of society must include an understanding of what it does to people, and that it is possible to have social reforms, even broad and sweeping ones, which though desirable in their own right would not necessarily change the structure of the prejudiced personality. For the fascist potential to change, or even to be held in check, there must be an increase in people's capacity to see themselves and to be themselves. This cannot be achieved by the manipulation of people, however well grounded in modern psychology the devices of manipulation might be. . . . It is here that psychology may play its most important role. Techniques for overcoming resistance, developed mainly in the field of individual psychotherapy, can be improved and adapted for use with groups and even for use on a mass scale."

The authors conclude with this most revealing proposition: "We need not suppose that appeal to emotion belongs to those who strive in the direction of fascism, while democratic propaganda must limit itself to reason and restraint. If fear and destructiveness are the major emotional sources of fascism, eros belongs mainly to democracy."

Eros was precisely the weapon that the Frankfurt School and their fellow-travellers employed, over the next 50 years, to create a cultural paradigm shift away from the so-called "authoritarian" matrix of man in the living image of God (imago viva Dei), the sanctity of the nuclear family, and the superiority of the republican form of nation-state over all other forms of political organization. They transformed American culture toward an erotic, perverse matrix, associated with the present "politically correct" tyranny of tolerance for dehumanizing drug abuse, sexual perversion, and the glorification of violence. For the Marxist/Freudian revolutionaries of the Frankfurt School, the ultimate antidote to the hated Western Judeo-Christian civilization was to tear that civilization down, from the inside, by turning out generations of necrophiliacs.

If this statement seems harsh, consider the following. In his 1948 work on The Philosophy of Modern Music, Frankfurt School leader Theodor Adorno argued that the purpose of modern music is to literally drive the listener insane. He justified this by asserting that modern society was a hotbed of evil, authoritarianism, and potential fascism, and that, only by first destroying civilization, through the spread of all forms of cultural pessimism and perversity, could liberation occur. On the role of modern music, he wrote, "It is not that schizophrenia is directly expressed therein; but the music imprints upon itself an attitude similar to that of the mentally ill. The individual brings about his own disintegration. . . . He imagines the fulfillment of the promise through magic, but nonetheless within the realm of immediate actuality. . . . Its concern is to dominate schizophrenic traits through the aesthetic consciousness. In so doing, it would hope to vindicate insanity as true health." Necrophilia, he added, is the ultimate expression of "true health" in this sick society.

Erich Fromm, another leading Frankfurt School figure, who was instrumental as early as the 1930s in devising the scales used in the Authoritarian Personality study, devoted much of his seminal 1972 work, The Anatomy of Human Destructiveness, to the analysis of necrophilia, which he pronounced to be the dominant trend in modern society. Fromm defined necrophilia as all forms of obsession with death and destruction, particularly those with intense sexual overtones. Ironically, his ostensible "cure" for this mass social perversion was the drug, rock, sex counterculture of the late 1960s. "Simultaneously with the increasing necrophilous development," Fromm wrote in his chapter on "Malignant Aggression: Necrophilia," "the opposite trend, that of love of life, is also developing. It manifests itself in many forms: in the protest against the deadening of life, a protest by people among all social strata and age groups, but particularly by the young. There is hope in the rising protest against pollution and war. . . . This protest is also to be understood in the attraction to drugs among the young."

Liberation through Drug Abuse
It is noteworthy that one of the four directors of the Authoritarian Personality project, R. Nevitt Sanford, played a pivotal role in the 1950s and '60s experimentation and eventual mass usage of psychedelic drugs. In 1965, Sanford wrote the forward to Utopiates: The Use and Users of LSD 25, which was published by Tavistock Publications, the publishing arm of Great Britain's pre-eminent psychological warfare agency, the Tavistock Institute. Tavistock directed the Psychiatric Division of the British Army during World War II, and dispatched many of its top brainwashers to the United States in the immediate postwar period, to work on the secret mind-control projects of the CIA and the Pentagon, including the MK-Ultra project, devoted to the study of LSD and other psychedelics.

In his foreword to Utopiates, Sanford, who headed up the Stanford University Institute for the Study of Human Problems, a major outpost for MK-Ultra secret LSD experimentation, spelled out the argument for drug legalization that is, to this day, at the heart of the pro-drug movement's propaganda. "The nation," Sanford wrote, "seems to be fascinated by our 40,000 or so drug addicts who are seen as alarmingly wayward people who must be curbed at all costs by expensive police activity. Only an uneasy Puritanism could support the practice of focusing on the drug addicts (rather than our 5 million alcoholics) and treating them as a police problem instead of a medical one, while suppressing harmless drugs such as marijuana and peyote along with the dangerous ones." The leading propagandists of the drug lobby today—George Soros, Ethan Nadelman, et al.—base their argument for legalization on the exact same scientific quackery that Dr. Sanford spelled out in Utopiates 36 years ago.

The Cybernetics Group
One of the "Big Lies" permeating Fromm's Anatomy was the idea that the erotic drug-rock-sex counterculture was the antidote to the cybernetic, technetronic "necrophilous" society. In reality, the Frankfurt School and their closest allies among the Russell/Wells/Huxley British oligarchy, were the architects of both the cybernetics project and the counterculture project of the 1960s. In fact, the Cybernetics Group, sponsored by the Josiah Macy Foundation, was the umbrella, under which the CIA and British intelligence conducted their mass experimentation with mind-altering psychedelic drugs, including LSD-25, which experiment was, eventually, spilled out onto the streets of San Francisco, New York's Greenwich Village, and every American college campus, giving us the counterculture "paradigm shift" of 1966-72.

The Cybernetics Group, known among its members as the "Man-Machine Project," was unofficially launched in May 1942 at a New York City conference called the Cerebral Inhibition Meeting, sponsored by the medical director of the Josiah Macy Foundation, Frank Fremont-Smith. Among the participants were Warren McCulloch, Arturo Rosenblueth, Gregory Bateson, Margaret Mead, and Lawrence K. Frank. Rosenblueth, a protégé of Norbert Wiener, set out the broad parameters of the proposed effort. Speaking on behalf of Wiener and John von Neumann, he proposed to draw together a group of engineers, biologists, neurologists, anthropologists, and psychologists, to devise experiments in social control, based on the quack claim that the human brain was nothing more than a complex input/output machine, and that human behavior could, in effect, be programmed, on both an individual and societal scale.[1]

World War II prevented the project from getting off the ground for four years. But shortly after the Japanese surrendered, McCulloch asked Fremont-Smith to convene a second gathering under the formal sponsorship of the Macy Foundation. The first of what would be a series of ten major conferences and year-long research efforts, between 1946 and 1953, took place in New York City on March 8-9, 1946, under the title, "The Feedback Mechanisms and Circular Causal Systems in Biology and the Social Sciences Meeting."

What came out of that first meeting was not only a demonic drive to create the ultimate engineered society, based on the fusion of man and machine. A core group of 20 people constituted themselves as a task force to carry out this mission, and would spawn a series of permanent institutions, where the work would continue, to the present day. A year after the founding session of the Macy project, Wiener would coin the term "cybernetics" to describe their effort.

Who were the "Dr. Jekylls" gathered around the table for the first of the Macy conferences?

Warren McCulloch was the titular chairman of all ten of the conferences. At the time of the first meeting, he was a professor of psychiatry and physiology at the University of Illinois, but he would soon move to the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT.

Walter Pitts, McCulloch's protégé, first at Illinois, and later at MIT.

Gregory Bateson, the anthropologist and then-spouse of Margaret Mead, who would soon become the director of research at the Veterans Hospital in Palo Alto, California, where he was a pivotal player in MK-Ultra and other secret government experiments with mind-altering drugs.

Margaret Mead, then the assistant curator of ethnology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, who would function as the "earth goddess" of the Cybernetics Group, and would help launch the modern feminist movement, through her patronage of Betty Friedan, a student-protégé of Kurt Lewin.

Kurt Lewin, founder of the Research Center for Group Dynamics at MIT, a leading Frankfurt School fellow-traveller, whose work with Frankfurt School founder Karl Korsch on linguistics would form a foundation of the field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Lewin's National Training Laboratory would later become part of the National Education Association, and would facilitate the transformation of public education in America into an approximation of Bertrand Russell's nightmarish scheme for teaching children that "snow is black."

Paul Lazarsfeld, the director of the Bureau of Applied Social Research at Columbia University, who had been the wartime head of the Radio Research Laboratory at Princeton University, and had been the patron there of the Frankfurt School's Theodor Adorno.

John Von Neumann.

Norbert Wiener.

An incredible collection of guests attended the Cybernetics Group sessions during their seven years of existence. Among them were Max Horkheimer, the head of the Frankfurt School, who collaborated with the Cybernetics Group, while directing the Studies in Prejudice.

Dr. Harold Abramson, one of the CIA's top scientists engaged in the secret LSD experimentation, not only attended the Sixth Cybernetics Group conference, but worked with Dr. Frank Fremont-Smith, the research director of the Macy Foundation, on a series of spinoff conferences, where all of the top personnel of MK-Ultra were able to convene under Macy Foundation cover and finances, to plot out their mass drugging of America.

In return, Abramson dutifully provided Fremont-Smith with ample personal supplies of LSD-25.

The Macy Foundation also provided financing and publicity for the British social engineer Dr. William Sargant, whose 1957 book, Battle for the Mind, provided a "how-to-do-it" manual for mass brainwashing. Sargant spent 20 years in the United States, working on the MK-Ultra project and other secret mind-control efforts of the U.S. and British governments.

Among the nastiest of the projects launched by the Cybernetics Group was the World Federation of Mental Health (WFMH), whose first president, Brig. Gen. John Rawlings Rees, was the director of the Tavistock Institute, Britain's premier psychological warfare center.

Rees, Mead, Lawrence K. Frank, Fremont-Smith and Horkheimer were all in Paris together, in the summer of 1948, to launch the WFMH. Although he had died the previous year, Kurt Lewin had been involved in the preparations for launching the Federation, through his involvement, under Frank, in the National Committee for Mental Hygiene, and the London-centered International Committee for Mental Hygiene, with a half-dozen Cybernetics Group members on its board. Both bodies oversaw a network of over 4,000 "psychiatric shock troops," in Rees's words, who would be at the heart of a worldwide social-engineering apparatus, penetrated into every community.

Margaret Mead and Lawrence K. Frank, two pillars of the Cybernetics Group, authored the founding statement of Rees's World Federation of Mental Health (both Mead and Frank would later succeed Rees as president), which they titled, "Manifesto of the First International." Mead and Frank bluntly wrote: "The goal of mental health has been enlarged from the concern for the development of healthy personalities to the larger tasks of creating a healthy society. . . . The concept of mental health is co-extensive with world order and world community." Frank even proposed to create a new religion of mental health.

Computers and Artificial Intelligence
For John von Neumann and Norbert Wiener, the core of the Cybernetics Group project was the development of computers, and the prospect of combining high-speed computers with so-called Artificial Intelligence, to literally "program" the human race. Underlying all of these efforts was the unshakable, albeit preposterous conviction, most avidly presented by von Neumann, that there was nothing sacred about the human mind, and that the human brain was a machine, whose functioning could be replicated, and eventually surpassed, by computers.

Dr. Jerome Wiesner, the president of MIT, which became the closest thing to the home of the Cybernetics Group, participated in several of the Macy Foundation sessions. He clearly stated this Luciferian view of man, in an interview with counterculture propagandist Stewart Brand, which appeared in Brand's 1987 book, The Media Lab: Inventing the Future at M.I.T.:

"I'm not arrogant enough to think that we're going to develop real thinking machines in a short time. But nerve signals travel at 300 meters a second. Electrical signals travel at . . . 300 million meters a second. Also the components we make are much more reliable than neurons. . . . The higher degree of reliability of the components and the very much higher degree of speed of the impulses means to me you ought to be able to make machines that are just a hell of a lot better than the brain, if you knew how to do it."

Brand asked Wiesner, "You expect that?"

Wiesner: "Yeah, not necessarily in my lifetime. No one has given a reason why it can't be done. They make all kinds of crazy arguments—`A computer doesn't have a soul.' How do we know that it won't have the same soul that we do? After all, humans will program it. I don't think questions about identity are very interesting."

Dr. Wiesner not only participated in the Cybernetics Group efforts of the Macy Foundation. In 1952, he took over the directorship of the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT, where Wiener, McCulloch, and Pitts had all taken up residence. Soon, the RLE had spun off the Artificial Intelligence Lab, with Dr. Seymour Papert and Marvin Minsky taking up the task of programming human behavior and interaction.

By the 1980s, MIT had spawned the Media Lab, another direct outgrowth of the 1940s and 50s Cybernetics Group. Here, the social engineers worked hand in glove with the engineers and machine designers who were developing high-speed computers, computer graphics, holographics, and the first generation of computer simulators. Much of the work at MIT, and at the Artificial Intelligence labs at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California, was funded through the Pentagon's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Steve Joshua Heims, the author of the semi-official history of the Macy conferences on cybernetics, The Cybernetics Group, reported that, by the 1980s, the cybernetics crowd had even spawned their own religion—an overtly pagan belief-system remarkably in keeping with Timothy Leary's call for a "scientific paganism." "James Lovelock and Lynn Margulis," Heims wrote, "have examined how life—plants, animals, microorganisms—has influenced the chemistry of the atmosphere and the climate, and how life and climate have coevolved. Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, which relies on a detailed cybernetic analysis, contends that all life on earth acts in concert with the atmosphere to make one self-regulating system that keeps the earth a liveable habitat." Heims did admit, "The validity of the Gaia hypothesis is currently the subject of scientific controversy."

Heims was far less guarded in his embrace of the work of the Media Lab, and the fact that the Media Lab was a direct outgrowth of the Macy Cybernetics project.

"McCulloch's and Pitts' 1943 approach to understanding mind and brain has had enthusiastic successors in the 1980s," he wrote. "Consider next the new, transdisciplinary Media Lab instituted at MIT in the 1980s. Onetime Macy participant Jerome Wiesner (who was close to McCulloch, Pitts and Wiener), Seymour Papert and Marvin Minsky (important figures in the history of the artificial intelligence approach to mind and brain), are lab associates. . . . According to the initial proposal the lab was to provide for `the intellectual mix of two rapidly evolving and very different fields; information technologies and the human sciences'. . . . It deals with improvements in high-definition TV, satellite communications, fiber-optic cable TV, three-dimensional imaging, and data-compression to permit inexpensive transfers of full-length color film to a compact disk."

LSD Freaks Meet Cyber-Hackers
In 1974, Stewart Brand, chief propagandist for both the psychotropic drug revolution and the personal computer revolution, published a collection of his previously published essays under the title, II Cybernetic Frontiers. Two of the essays consisted of interviews he had conducted with Gregory Bateson, one of the architects of the psychedelic revolution in America, through his posting at the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, where much MK-Ultra experimentation took place. Bateson was one of the four or five most influential members of the Cybernetics Group. The other, longer essay in the book, "Fanatic Life and Symbolic Death Among the Computer Bums," was first published in the December 1972 issue of the leading counterculture publication, Rolling Stone.

Brand began the Rolling Stone piece with the startling boast: "Ready or not, computers are coming to the people. That's good news, maybe the best since psychedelics." He continued, "It's way off the track of the `Computers—Threat or Menace?' school of liberal criticism but surprisingly in line with the romantic fantasies of the fore-fathers of the science, such as Norbert Wiener, Warren McCulloch, J.C.R. Licklider, John von Neumann, and Vannevar Bush. The trend owes its health to an odd array of influences: the youthful fervor and firm dis-Establishmentarianism of the freaks who design computer science; an astonishingly enlightened research program from the very top of the Defense Department; an unexpected market-flanking movement by the manufacturers of small calculating machines; and an irrepressible midnight phenomenon known as Spacewar."

Brand provided a detailed explanation of Spacewar, perhaps the very first computer war game to be designed. "Ah, Spacewar. Reliably, at any night-time moment (i.e., non-business hours) in North America, hundreds of computer technicians are effectively out of their bodies, computer-projected onto cathode ray tube display screens, locked in life-or-death space combat for hours at a time, ruining their eyes, numbing their fingers in frenzied mashing of control buttons, joyously slaying their friends and wasting their employers' valuable computer time."

If this sounds like a mild version of the latter-day souped-up sex and violence video games of today—it is!

Beginning in 1963, when the U.S. space program was moved out of the military and housed under NASA, J.C.R. Licklider convinced his boss at ARPA (what would later be called DARPA) to devote a fraction of the agency's budget to computer research. At the time, the Department of Defense was the world's largest consumer of computers. Licklider became the director of an ARPA unit called IPTO (Information Processing Techniques Office), and, over the next years, disbursed millions of dollars to a wide range of computer and Artificial Intelligence research centers.

Until 1969, when the Mansfield Amendment placed restrictions on how the Pentagon could spend its research and development money, there were no boundary conditions on the kinds of projects that IPTO could bankroll. Billions of dollars went into the early development of computer networking, computer graphics, "virtual reality," simulation, and other key facets of what, today, is a $9-11 billion-a-year commercial industry of point-and-shoot video games. The Media Lab at MIT and the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Lab were two of the magnets for this money and the research work which fueled both the Pentagon training-simulation programs and the evolving video-game industry.

In his book On Killing, Lt. Col. David Grossman recounts how the advent of high-speed computers allowed the social engineers, responsible for training soldiers to overcome their aversion to killing, provided an unsurpassed technology for stimulus-response behavior modification. The increasingly realistic video graphics, the advanced work on neurological processes—all hallmarks of the cybernetic "man-machine" project—transformed the U.S. military into a force of programmed killers, and ultimately became the social engineers' "weapon of choice" for twisting the minds of millions of America's youth.

The social engineers seeking to fulfill Adorno, Horkheimer, Russell, and Huxley's visions of a perfectly engineered society, led by a "scientific dictatorship," were never far removed from the computer and AI labs where the technologies were being developed and tested. It was only a matter of time that, like the LSD experiments of the 1960s, the secret military experimental phase ended, and the American population became the targets, this time, of the sex and violence self-programming of Doom, Quake, and the rest

Following the arrest and subsequent death in prison of alleged child sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein, a little-known Israeli tech company began to receive increased publicity, but for all the wrong reasons. Not long after Epstein’s arrest, and his relationships and finances came under scrutiny, it was revealed that the Israeli company Carbyne911 had received substantial funding from Jeffrey Epstein as well as Epstein’s close associate and former Prime Minister of Israel Ehud Barak, and Silicon Valley venture capitalist and prominent Trump backer Peter Thiel.

Carbyne911, or simply Carbyne, develops call-handling and identification capabilities for emergency response services in countries around the world, including the United States, where it has already been implemented in several U.S. counties and has partnered with major U.S. tech companies like Google. It specifically markets its product as a way of mitigating mass shootings in the United States without having to change existing U.S. gun laws.

Yet, Carbyne is no ordinary tech company, as it is deeply connected to the elite Israeli military intelligence division, Unit 8200, whose “alumni” often go on to create tech companies — Carbyne among them — that frequently maintain their ties to Israeli intelligence and, according to Israeli media reports and former employees, often “blur the line” between their service to Israel’s defense/intelligence apparatus and their commercial activity. As this report will reveal, Carbyne is but one of several Israeli tech companies marketing themselves as a technological solution to mass shootings that has direct ties to Israeli intelligence agencies.

 

 

In each case, these companies’ products are built in such a way that they can easily be used to illegally surveil the governments, institutions and civilians that use them, a troubling fact given Unit 8200’s documented prowess in surveillance as a means of obtaining blackmail and Israel’s history of using tech companies to aggressively spy on the U.S. government. This is further compounded by the fact that Unit 8200-linked tech companies have previously received U.S. government contracts to place “backdoors” into the U.S.’ entire telecommunications system as well as into the popular products of major American tech companies including Google, Microsoft and Facebook, many of whose key managers and executives are now former Unit 8200 officers.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has made it no secret that placing Unit 8200 members in top positions in multinational tech companies is a “deliberate policy” meant to ensure Israel’s role as the dominant global “cyber power”, while also combating non-violent boycott movements targeting Israel’s violations of international law and stifling the United Nations’ criticisms of Israeli government policy and military operations abroad.

As Jeffrey Epstein’s links to intelligence in both the United States and Israel — the subject of a recent four-part series exclusive to MintPress — began to be revealed in full, his financing of Carbyne came under scrutiny, particularly for the company’s deep ties to Israeli intelligence as well as to certain Americans with known connections to U.S. intelligence. Ehud Barak’s own role as both financier and chairman of Carbyne has also added to that concern, given his long history of involvement in covert intelligence operations for Israel and his long-standing ties to Israeli military intelligence.

Another funder of Carbyne, Peter Thiel, has his own company that, like Carbyne, is set to profit from the Trump administration’s proposed hi-tech solutions to mass shootings. Indeed, after the recent shooting in El Paso, Texas, President Trump — who received political donations from and has been advised by Thiel following his election — asked tech companies to “detect mass shooters before they strike,” a service already perfected by Thiel’s company Palantir, which has developed “pre-crime software” already in use throughout the country. Palantir is also a contractor for the U.S. intelligence community and also has a branch based in Israel.

Perhaps most disturbing of all, whatever technological solution is adopted by the Trump administration, it is set to use a controversial database first developed as part of a secretive U.S. government program that involved notorious Iran-Contra figures like Oliver North as a means of tracking and flagging potential American dissidents for increased surveillance and detention in the event of a vaguely defined “national emergency.”

As this report will reveal, this database — often referred to as “Main Core” — was created with the involvement of Israeli intelligence and Israel remained involved years after it was developed, and potentially to the present. It was also used by at least one former CIA official on President Reagan’s National Security Council to blackmail members of Congress, Congressional staffers and journalists, among others.

Given recent reports on the Trump administration’s plan to create a new government agency to use “advanced technology” to identify “neurobehavioral signs” of “someone headed toward a violent explosive act” using data collected by consumer electronic devices, the picture painted by the technology currently being promoted and implemented under the guise of “keeping Americans safe” is deeply Orwellian. In fact, it points directly to the genesis of a far-reaching surveillance state far more extensive than anything yet seen in American history and it is being jointly developed by individuals connected to both American and Israeli intelligence.

Demystifying Carbyne
Carbyne911, which will be referred to simply as Carbyne in this report, is an Israeli tech-startup that promises to revolutionize how calls are handled by emergency service providers, as well as by governments, corporations and educational institutions. Not long after it was founded in 2014 by veterans of Israeli military intelligence, Carbyne began to be specifically marketed as a solution to mass shootings in the United States that goes “beyond the gun debate” and improves the “intelligence that armed emergency responders receive before entering an armed shooter situation” by providing video-streaming and acoustic input from civilian smartphones and other devices connected to the Carbyne network.

Prior to Jeffrey Epstein’s arrest in July, Carbyne had been receiving high praise from U.S. and Israeli media, with Fox News hailing the company’s services as the answer to the U.S.’ “aging 911 systems” and the Jerusalem Post writing that the company’s platform offers “hi-tech protection to social workers and school principals.” Other reports claimed that Carbyne’s services result in “a 65% reduction in time-to-dispatch.”

Carbyne’s call-handling/crisis management platform has already been implemented in several U.S. counties and the company has offices not only in the U.S. but also in Mexico, Ukraine and Israel. Carbyne’s expansion to more emergency service provider networks in the U.S. is likely, given that federal legislation seeks to offer grants to upgrade 911 call centers throughout the country with the very technology of which Carbyne is the leading provider. One of the main lobby groups promoting this legislation, the National Emergency Number Association (NENA), has a “strong relationship” with Carbyne, according to Carbyne’s website. In addition, Carbyne has also begun marketing its platform for non-emergency calls to governments, educational institutions and corporations.

Yet, what seemed like the inevitability of Carbyne’s widespread adoption in the U.S. hit a snag following the recent arrest and subsequent death of sex trafficker and pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who exploited underage girls for the purpose of obtaining “blackmail” on the rich and poweful, an operation that had clear ties to intelligence. Epstein, after his first arrest and light sentence for soliciting sex from a minor in 2007, was tapped by former Israeli Prime Minister and former head of Israeli military intelligence Ehud Barak, to become a key financial backer of Carbyne.

As a result of increased scrutiny of Epstein’s business activities and his ties to Israel, particularly to Barak, Epstein’s connection to Carbyne was revealed and extensively reported on by the independent media outlet Narativ, whose exposé on Carbyne revealed not only some of the key intelligence connections of the start-up company but also how the architecture of Carbyne’s product itself raises “serious privacy concerns.”

MintPress detailed many of Carbyne’s main intelligence connections in Part III of the investigative series “Inside the Jeffrey Epstein Scandal: Too Big to Fail.” In addition to Barak — former Israeli prime minister and former head of Israeli military intelligence — serving as Carbyne’s chairman and a key financer, the company’s executive team are all former members of Israeli intelligence, including the elite military intelligence unit, Unit 8200, which is often compared to the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA).

Carbyne’s current CEO, Amir Elichai, served in Unit 8200 and tapped former Unit 8200 commander and current board member of AIPAC Pinchas Buchris to serve as the company’s director and on its board. In addition to Elichai, another Carbyne co-founder, Lital Leshem, also served in Unit 8200 and later worked for Israeli private spy company Black Cube. The only Carbyne co-founder that didn’t serve in Unit 8200 is Alex Dizengof, who previously worked for Israel’s Prime Minister’s office.

As MintPress noted in a past report detailing Israeli military intelligence’s deep ties to American tech giant Microsoft, Unit 8200 is an elite unit of the Israeli Intelligence corps that is part of the IDF’s Directorate of Military Intelligence and is involved mainly in signal intelligence (i.e., surveillance), cyberwarfare and code decryption. It is frequently described as the Israeli equivalent of the NSA and Peter Roberts, senior research fellow at Britain’s Royal United Services Institute, characterized the unit in an interview with the Financial Times as “probably the foremost technical intelligence agency in the world and stand[ing] on a par with the NSA in everything except scale.”

Notably, the NSA and Unit 8200 have collaborated on numerous projects, most infamously on the Stuxnet virus as well as the Duqu malware. In addition, the NSA is known to work with veterans of Unit 8200 in the private sector, such as when the NSA hired two Israeli companies, to create backdoors into all the major U.S. telecommunications systems and major tech companies, including Facebook, Microsoft and Google. Both of those companies, Verint and Narus, have top executives with ties to Israeli intelligence and one of those companies, Verint (formerly Comverse Infosys), has a history of aggressively spying on U.S. government facilities. Unit 8200 is also known for spying on civilians in the occupied Palestinian territories for “coercion purposes” — i.e., gathering info for blackmail — and also for spying on Palestinian-Americans via an intelligence-sharing agreement with the NSA.

Unlike many other Unit 8200-linked start-ups, Carbyne also boasts several tie-ins to the Trump administration, including Palantir founder and Trump ally Peter Thiel — another investor in Carbyne. In addition, Carbyne’s board of advisers includes former Palantir employee Trae Stephens, who was a member of the Trump transition team, as well as former Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff. Trump donor and New York real-estate developer Eliot Tawill is also on Carbyne’s board, alongside Ehud Barak and Pinchas Buchris.

Yet, privacy concerns with Carbyne go beyond the company’s ties to Israeli intelligence and U.S. intelligence contractors like Peter Thiel. For instance, Carbyne’s smartphone app extracts the following information from the phones on which it is installed:

Device location, video live-streamed from the smartphone to the call center, text messages in a two-way chat window, any data from a user’s phone if they have the Carbyne app and ESInet, and any information that comes over a data link, which Carbyne opens in case the caller’s voice link drops out.” (emphasis added)

According to Carbyne’s website, this same information can also be obtained from any smartphone, even if it does not have Carbyne’s app installed, if that phone calls a 911 call center that uses Carbyne or merely any other number connected to Carbyne’s network.

Carbyne data collection
Carbyne gathers data points from users’ phones as well as a myriad of other web-connected devices.

Carbyne is a Next-Generation 9-11 (NG911) platform and the explicit goal of NG911 is for all 911 systems nationwide to become interconnected. Thus, even if Carbyne is not used by all 911 call centers using an NG911 platform, Carbyne will ostensibly have access to the data used by all emergency service providers and devices connected to those networks. This guiding principle of NG911 also makes it likely that one platform will be favored at the federal level to foster such interconnectivity and, given that it has already been adopted by several counties and has ties to the Trump administration, Carbyne is the logical choice.

Another cause for concern is how other countries have used platforms like Carbyne, which were first marketed as emergency response tools, for the purpose of mass surveillance. Narativ noted the following in its investigation of Carbyne:

In May, Human Rights Watch revealed Chinese authorities use a platform not unlike Carbyne to illegally surveil Uyghurs. China’s Integrated Joint Operations Platform brings in a much bigger data-set and sources of video, which includes an app on people’s phones. Like Carbyne, the platform was designed to report emergencies. Chinese authorities have turned it into a tool of mass surveillance.

Human Rights Watch reverse-engineered the app. The group discovered the app automatically profiles a user under 36 “person types” including “followers of Six Lines” which is the term used to identify Uyghurs. Another term refers to “Hajj,” the annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca. The app monitors every aspect of a user’s life, including personal conversations [and] power usage, and tracks a user’s movement.”

Such technology is currently used by Israeli military intelligence and Israel’s domestic intelligence agency Shin Bet to justify “pre-crime” detentions of Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. As will be noted in greater detail later in this report, Palestinians’ comments on social media are tracked by artificial intelligence algorithms that flag them for indefinite detention if they write social media posts that contain “tripwire” phrases such as “the sword of Allah.”

Carbyne’s platform has its own “pre-crime” elements, such as it’s c-Records component, which stores and analyzes information on past calls and events that pass through its network. This information “enables decision makers to accurately analyze the past and present behavior of their callers, react accordingly, and in time predict future patterns.” (emphasis added)

Concerns have recently been raised that “pre-crime” technology may soon become more widely adopted in the U.S., after President Trump stated that one of his planned solutions to mass shootings in the wake of the recent tragedy in El Paso was for big tech companies to detect potential shooters before they strike.

Israeli intelligence, Blackmail and Silicon Valley
Though many of the individuals involved in funding or managing Carbyne have proven ties to intelligence, a closer look into several of these players reveals even deeper connections to both Israeli and U.S. intelligence.

One of Carbyne’s clearest connections to Israeli intelligence is through its chairman and one of its funders, Ehud Barak. Though Barak is best known for being a former prime minister of Israel, he is also a former minister of defense and the former head of Israeli military intelligence. He oversaw Unit 8200’s operations, as well as other units of Israeli military intelligence, in all three of those positions. For most of his military and later political career, Barak has been closely associated with covert operations.

Prior to the public scrutiny of Barak’s relationship to Jeffrey Epstein, following the latter’s arrest this past July and subsequent death, Barak had come under fire for his ties to disgraced film mogul Harvey Weinstein. Indeed, it was Ehud Barak who put Weinstein in contact with the Israeli private intelligence outfit Black Cube, which employs former Mossad agents and Israeli military intelligence operatives, as Weinstein sought to intimidate the women who had accused him of sexual assault and sexual harassment. Former Mossad director Meir Dagan led Black Cube’s board until his death in 2016 and Carbyne co-founder Lital Leshem is Black Cube’s former director of marketing.

After Barak put him in contact with Black Cube’s leadership, Weinstein, according to The New Yorker, used the private spy firm to “‘target,’ or collect information on, dozens of individuals, and compile psychological profiles that sometimes focused on their personal or sexual histories.” In addition, The New Yorker noted that “Weinstein monitored the progress of the investigations personally” and “also enlisted former employees from his film enterprises to join in the effort, collecting names and placing calls that, according to some sources who received them, felt intimidating.”

Yet, more recently, it has been Barak’s close relationship to Epstein that has raised eyebrows and opened him up to political attacks from his rivals. Epstein and Barak were first introduced by former Israeli Prime Minister Shimon Peres in 2002, a time when Epstein’s pedophile blackmail and sex trafficking operation was in full swing.

Barak was a frequent visitor to Epstein’s residences in New York, so often that The Daily Beast reported that numerous residents of an apartment building linked to Epstein “had seen Barak in the building multiple times over the last few years, and nearly half a dozen more described running into his security detail,” adding that “the building is majority-owned by Epstein’s younger brother, Mark, and has been tied to the financier’s alleged New York trafficking ring.” Specifically, several apartments in the building were “being used to house underage girls from South America, Europe and the former Soviet Union,” according to a former bookkeeper employed by one of Epstein’s main procurers of underage girls, Jean Luc Brunel.

Barak is also known to have spent the night at one of Epstein’s residences at least once, was photographed leaving Epstein’s residence as recently as 2016, and has admitted to visiting Epstein’s island, which has sported nicknames including “Pedo Island,” “Lolita Island” and “Orgy Island.” In 2004, Barak received $2.5 million from Leslie Wexner’s Wexner Foundation, where Epstein was a trustee as well as one of the foundation’s top donors, officially for unspecified “consulting services” and “research” on the foundation’s behalf.

In 2015, Barak formed a limited partnership company in Israel for the explicit purpose of investing in Carbyne (then known as Reporty) and invested millions of dollars in the company, quickly becoming a major shareholder and subsequently the company’s public face and the chairman of its board. At least $1 million of the money invested in this Barak-created company that was later used to invest in Carbyne came from the Southern Trust Company, which was owned by Jeffrey Epstein.

In July, Bloomberg reported that Epstein’s Southern Trust Company is identified in U.S. Virgin Islands filings as “a DNA database and data mining” company. Given Carbyne’s clear potential for data-mining and civilian profiling, Epstein’s investment in Carbyne using this specific company suggests that Carbyne’s investors have long been aware of this little advertised aspect of Carbyne’s product.

In a statement to the Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Barak asserted:

I saw the business opportunity and registered a partnership in my control in Israel. A small number of people I know invest in it…Since these are private investments, it wouldn’t be proper or right for me to expose the investors’ details.”

However, Barak later admitted that Epstein had been one of the investors.

MintPress’ recent series on the Jeffrey Epstein scandal noted in detail Epstein’s ties to CIA/Mossad intelligence assets, such as Adnan Khashoggi; CIA front companies, such as Southern Air Transport; and organized crime, through his close association with Leslie Wexner. In addition, Epstein’s long-time “girlfriend” and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell, has family links to Israeli intelligence through her father, Robert Maxwell. While it appears that Epstein may have been working for more than one intelligence agency, Zev Shalev, former executive producer for CBS News and journalist at Narativ, recently stated that he had independently confirmed with two unconnected sources “closely connected to the Epstein story and in a position to know” that Epstein had “worked for Israeli military intelligence.”

Notably, Epstein, who was known for his interest in obtaining blackmail through the sexual abuse of the underaged girls he exploited, also claimed to have “damaging information” on prominent figures in Silicon Valley. In a conversation last year with New York Times reporter James Stewart, Epstein claimed to have “potentially damaging or embarrassing” information on Silicon Valley’s elite and told Stewart that these top figures in the American tech industry “were hedonistic and regular users of recreational drugs.” Epstein also told Stewart that he had “witnessed prominent tech figures taking drugs and arranging for sex” and claimed to know “details about their supposed sexual proclivities.”

In the lead-up to his recent arrest, Jeffrey Epstein appeared to have been attempting to rebrand as a “tech investor,” as he had done interviews with several journalists including Stewart about technology investing in the months before he was hit with federal sex trafficking charges.

Jessica Lessin, editor-in-chief of The Information, told Business Insider that a journalist working for The Information had interviewed Epstein a month before his recent arrest because “he was believed to be an investor in venture capital funds.” However, Lessin claimed that the interview was not “newsworthy” and said the site had no plans to publish its contents. Business Insider claimed that the way the interviews with Epstein had been arranged “suggests that someone in Silicon Valley may have been trying to help Epstein connect with reporters.”

Though it is unknown exactly which Silicon Valley figures were most connected to Epstein and which tech executives were potentially being blackmailed by Epstein, it is known that Epstein associated with several prominent tech executives, including Google co-founder Sergey Brin, Facebook co-founder Mark Zuckerberg, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, and LinkedIn co-founder Reid Hoffman.

Last year, Epstein claimed to be advising Tesla and Elon Musk, who had been previously photographed with Epstein’s alleged madam Ghislaine Maxwell. A few years ago, Epstein also attended a dinner hosted by LinkedIn’s Reid Hoffman, where Musk had allegedly introduced Epstein to Mark Zuckerberg. Google’s Sergey Brin is known to have attended a dinner hosted by Epstein at his New York residence where Donald Trump was also in attendance.

Elon Musk Ghislaine Maxwell

These associations suggest that the person in Silicon Valley who was trying to boost Epstein’s image as a tech investor before his arrest may have been Peter Thiel, whose Founders Fund had also invested in Carbyne. Thiel was an early investor in Facebook and is still on its board, connecting him to Zuckerberg; he is also a funder of Elon Musk’s SpaceX and a former colleague of Musk’s through PayPal. In addition, Thiel has ties to Reid Hoffman and both Thiel and Hoffman are prominent backers of Facebook.

It is unknown whether Epstein’s “damaging information” and apparent blackmail on notable individuals in the American technology industry were used to advance the objectives of Carbyne, which recently partnered with tech giants Google and Cisco Systems — and, more broadly, the expansion of Israeli intelligence-linked tech companies into the American tech sector, particularly through the acquisition of Israeli tech start-ups linked to Unit 8200 by major U.S. tech companies.

The latter seems increasingly likely given that the father of Ghislaine Maxwell — one of Epstein’s chief co-conspirators in his intelligence-linked sexual blackmail operation involving minors — was a Mossad operative who helped sell software that had been bugged by Israeli intelligence to government agencies and sensitive facilities around the world, including in the United States.

As will be noted later in this report, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — to whom all of Israel’s intelligence agencies answer by virtue of his position — has stated on more than one occasion that the acquisition of Israeli intelligence-linked start-ups by foreign tech giants, especially in Silicon Valley, is a current and “deliberate policy” of the state of Israel.

Carbyne’s ties to U.S. intelligence
While Epstein and Barak are the two financiers of Carbyne whose ties to intelligence are clearest, another funder of Carbyne, Peter Thiel, has ties to U.S. intelligence and a history of investing in other companies founded by former members of Unit 8200. Thiel co-founded and still owns a controlling stake in the company Palantir, which was initially funded with a $2 million investment from the CIA’s venture capital fund In-Q-Tel and quickly thereafter became a contractor for the CIA.

After the success of its contract with the CIA, Palantir became a contractor for a variety of federal agencies, including the FBI, the Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA), the National Security Agency (NSA), the Department of Homeland Security(DHS) and the military’s Special Operations Command, among others. Last year, it won a contract to create a new battlefield intelligence system for the U.S. Army. Palantir is also in demand for its “pre-crime technology,” which has been used by several U.S. police departments. According to the Guardian, “Palantir tracks everyone from potential terrorist suspects to corporate fraudsters, child traffickers and what they refer to as ‘subversives’… it is all done using prediction.”

Thiel has gained attention in recent years for his support of President Trump and for becoming an adviser to Trump following the 2016 election, when he was “a major force in the transition,” according to Politico, and “helped fill positions in the Trump administration with former staff.” One of those former staffers was Trae Stephens, who is also on Carbyne’s board of advisers. Thiel also has business ties to Trump’s son-in-law and influential adviser, Jared Kushner, as well as to Kushner’s brother Josh. A senior Trump campaign aide told Politico in 2017 that “Thiel is immensely powerful within the administration through his connection to Jared.”

Thiel has also backed some prominent Israeli tech start-ups connected to Unit 8200, such as BillGuard, which Thiel funded along with former Google CEO Eric Schmidt and other investors. BillGuard was founded by Raphael Ouzan, a former officer in Unit 8200, who serves on the board of directors of Start-Up Nation Central (SUNC) alongside neoconservative American hedge fund manager Paul Singer, neoconservative political operative and adviser Dan Senor, and Terry Kassel, who works for Singer at his hedge fund, Elliott Management.

SUNC is an organization founded by Paul Singer, who has donated heavily to both President Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu. Since it was founded in 2012, SUNC has sought to integrate Unit 8200-connected Israeli tech start-ups into foreign companies, primarily American companies, and has helped oversee the shift of thousands of high-paying tech jobs from the U.S. to Israel.

Another Carbyne-connected individual worth noting is the former head of the Department of Homeland Security, Michael Chertoff, who serves on Carbyne’s board of advisers. In addition to Chertoff’s ties to DHS, Chertoff’s company, The Chertoff Group, employees several prominent former members of the U.S. intelligence community as principals, including Michael Hayden, former director of the CIA and former director of the NSA; and Charles Allen, former assistant director of Central Intelligence for Collection at the CIA, who worked at the agency for over 40 years.

The Chertoff Group has a long-standing and lucrative contract with the company OSI Systems, which produces full-body scanners and markets itself as a solution to mass shootings and crisis events, not unlike Carbyne. While Chertoff’s company was advising OSI Systems, Chertoff went on a media blitz to promote the widespread use of the machines produced by OSI Systems and even called on Congress to “fund a large-scale deployment of next-generation systems.” Chertoff did not disclose his conflict of interest while publicly promoting OSI’s full-body scanners.

Some have also alleged that Chertoff’s mother, Livia Eisen, had links to Israeli intelligence. According to her 1998 obituary, cited by both researcher/author Christopher Bollyn and journalist Jonathan Cook, Eisen participated in the Mossad operation code-named “Magic Carpet” while working for Israel’s El Al Airlines. Both Bollyn and Cook have suggested that Eisen’s participation in this covert Israeli intelligence operation strongly indicates that she had ties to the Mossad.

Melding into Silicon Valley
Beyond its troubling connections to Silicon Valley oligarchs, Israeli military intelligence and the U.S.-military industrial complex, Carbyne’s recent partnerships with two specific technology companies — Google and Cisco Systems — raise even more red flags.

Carbyne announced its partnership with Cisco Systems this past April, with the latter announcing that it would begin “aligning its unified call manager with Carbyne’s call-handling platform, allowing emergency call centers to collect data from both 911 callers and nearby government-owned IoT [Internet of Things] devices.” A report on the partnership published by Government Technology magazine stated that “Carbyne’s platform will be integrated into Cisco Kinetic for Cities, an IoT data platform that shares data across community infrastructure, smart city solutions, applications and connected devices.” The report also noted that “Carbyne will also be the only 911 solution in the Cisco Marketplace.”

As part of the partnership, Carbyne’s President of North American Operations Paul Tatro told Government Technology that the Carbyne platform would combine the data it obtains from smartphones and other Carbyne-connected devices with “what’s available through nearby Cisco-connected road cameras, roadside sensors, smart streetlamps, smart parking meters or other devices.” Tatro further asserted that “Carbyne can also analyze data that’s being collected by Cisco IoT devices … and alert 911 automatically, without any person making a phone call, if there appears to be a worthy problem,” and expressed his view that soon most emergency calls will not be made by human beings but “by smart cars, telematics or other smart city devices.”

A few months after partnering with Cisco Systems, Carbyne announced its partnership with Google on July 10, just three days after Carbyne funder Jeffrey Epstein was arrested in New York on federal sex trafficking charges. Carbyne’s press release of the partnership described how the company and Google would be teaming up in Mexico “to offer advanced mobile location to emergency communications centers (ECCs) throughout Mexico” following the conclusion of a successful four-week pilot program between Carbyne and Google in the Central American nation.

The press release also stated:

Carbyne will provide Google’s Android ELS (Emergency Location Service) in real time from emergency calls made on AndroidTM devices. Deployment for any ECC in the country won’t require any integration, with Carbyne providing numerous options for connection to their secure ELS Gateway once an ECC is approved. The Carbyne automated platform, requiring no human interaction, has the potential to save thousands of lives each year throughout Mexico.”

The reason Carybne’s partnerships with Cisco Systems and Google are significant lies in the role that Cisco and former Google CEO Eric Schmidt have played in the creation of a controversial “incubator” for Israeli tech start-ups with deep ties to Israeli military intelligence, American neoconservative donor Paul Singer, and the U.S.’ National Security Agency (NSA).

This company, called Team8, is an Israeli company-creation platform whose CEO and co-founder is Nadav Zafrir, former commander of Unit 8200. Two of the company’s other three co-founders are also “alumni” of Unit 8200. Among Team8’s top investors is Schmidt, the former CEO of Google, who also joined Peter Thiel in funding the Unit 8200-linked BillGuard, as well as major tech companies including Cisco Systems and Microsoft.

Last year, Team8 controversially hired the former head of the NSA and U.S. Cyber Command, Retired Admiral Mike Rogers, and Zafrir stated that his interest in hiring Rogers was that Rogers would be “instrumental in helping strategize” Team8’s expansion in the United States. Jake Williams, a veteran of NSA’s Tailored Access Operations (TAO) hacking unit, told CyberScoop:

Rogers is not being brought into this role because of his technical experience. …It’s purely because of his knowledge of classified operations and his ability to influence many in the U.S. government and private-sector contractors.”

Team8 has also been heavily promoted by Start-Up Nation Central (SUNC). SUNC prominently features Team8 and Zafrir on the cybersecurity section of its website and also sponsored a talk by Zafrir and an Israeli government economist at the World Economic Forum, often referred to as “Davos,” that was attended personally by Paul Singer.

SUNC itself has deep ties to Israeli military intelligence, with former Unit 8200 officer Raphael Ouzan serving on its board of directors. Another example of SUNC-Unit 8200 ties can be seen with Inbal Arieli, who served as SUNC’s Vice President of Strategic Partnerships from 2014 to 2017 and continues to serve as a senior adviser to the organization. Arieli, a former lieutenant in Unit 8200, is the founder and head of the 8200 Entrepreneurship and Innovation Support Program (EISP), which was the first start-up accelerator in Israel aimed at harnessing “the vast network and entrepreneurial DNA of [Unit] 8200 alumni” and is currently one of the top company accelerators in Israel, alongside Team8. Arieli was the top executive at 8200 EISP while working at SUNC and several other top SUNC staffers are also connected to Israeli military intelligence.

Thus, Google and Cisco’s connections to Team8 suggests that their partnerships with another Israeli military intelligence-connected firm like Carbyne is a deepening of those two companies’ links to the growing bi-national security state that is uniting key players in the U.S. military-industrial complex and Israeli intelligence.

Mossad-backed Panic Buttons, coming to a school near you
Carbyne is hardly the only Israeli intelligence-linked tech company marketing itself in the United States as a solution to mass shootings. Another Israeli start-up, known as Gabriel, was founded in 2016 in response to a shooting in Tel Aviv and the Pulse Nightclub shooting in the United States, which took place just days apart.

Created by Israeli-American Yoni Sherizen and Israeli citizen Asaf Adler, Gabriel is similar to Carbyne in the sense that elements of its crisis response platform require installation on civilian smartphones as well as devices used by crisis responders. The main difference is that Gabriel also installs one or a series of physical “panic buttons,” depending on the size of the building to be secured, that also double as video and audio communication devices connected to the Gabriel network.

As with Carbyne, the ties between Gabriel and Israeli intelligence are obvious. Indeed, Gabriel’s four-person advisory board includes Ram Ben-Barak, former deputy director of the Mossad and former director-general of Israel’s intelligence ministry; Yohanan Danino, former chief of police for the state of Israel; and Kobi Mor, former director of overseas missions for the Israeli intelligence agency Shin Bet. The only American on the advisory board is Ryan Petty, the father of a Parkland shooting victim and friend of former Florida Governor Rick Scott.

Gabriel’s only disclosed funder is U.S.-based MassChallenge, a start-up accelerator non-profit. Gabriel is funded by MassChallenge’s Israel branch, which was opened six months prior to Gabriel’s creation and is partnered with the Israeli government and the Kraft Group. The Kraft Group is managed by Robert Kraft, who is currently embroiled in a prostitution scandal and is also a close friend of President Trump.

Notably, one of MassChallenge Israel’s featured experts is Wendy Singer, the executive director of SUNC, the organization created and funded by neoconservative Trump backer Paul Singer with the explicit purpose of promoting Israel’s tech start-ups and their integration into foreign, chiefly American, businesses. As was noted in a recent MintPress report on SUNC, Wendy Singer is the sister of neoconservative political operative Dan Senor, who founded the now-defunct Foreign Policy Initiative with Robert Kagan and Bill Kristol, and was previously the director of AIPAC’s Israel office for 16 years.

Gabriel’s founders have been quite upfront about the fact that the uptick in shootings in the U.S. has greatly aided their company’s growth and success. Last November, Sherizen told The Jerusalem Post that new mass shootings in the U.S. not only increased U.S. demand for his company’s product but also were opportunities to show the effectiveness of Gabriel’s approach:

Unfortunately every month there seems to be another high-profile event of this nature. After the Vegas shooting, we were able to show [that] our system would have managed to identify the location of the shooter much quicker.”

The Jerusalem Post noted that Gabriel is set to make considerable profits if concern over mass shootings continues to build in the U.S., writing:

With more than 475,000 soft targets across the US and amid increasing security fears, the potential market for Gabriel is huge. The company could gain revenues of almost $1 billion if only 10% of soft targets were to invest around $20,000 in its alert systems.”

Sherizen told the Jerusalem Post:

Our starter kit costs $10,000. Depending on the size and makeup of the community building, it would cost between $20-30,000 to fully outfit the location. We have made it very affordable. This is a game-changer for the lock-down and active shooter drills that are now a standard part of any child’s upbringing in the States.”

Much more than just a start-up
While it is certainly possible that numerous former officials and commanders of elite Israeli intelligence agencies may have no ulterior motive in advising or founding technology start-up companies, it is worth pointing out that top figures in Israel’s military intelligence agencies and the Mossad don’t see it that way.

Last March, Israeli media outlet Calcalist Tech published a report entitled “Israel Blurs the Line Between Defense Apparatus and Local Cybersecurity Hub,” which noted that “since 2012, cyber-related and intelligence projects that were previously carried out in-house in the Israeli military and Israel’s main intelligence arms are transferred to companies that in some cases were built for this exact purpose.” (emphasis added)

The article notes that beginning in 2012, Israel’s intelligence and military intelligence agencies began to outsource “activities that were previously managed in-house, with a focus on software and cyber technologies.” (emphasis added)

It continues:

In some cases, managers of development projects in the Israeli military and intelligence arms were encouraged to form their own companies, which then took over the project,’ an Israeli venture capitalist familiar with the matter told Calcalist Tech.”

Notably, Calcalist Tech states that the controversial company Black Cube was created this way and that Black Cube had been contracted, and is likely still contracted, by Israel’s Ministry of Defense. The private security agency Black Cube is known to have two separate divisions for corporations and governments. The firm was recently caught attempting to undermine the Iran nuclear deal — then also a top political objective of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu — by attempting to obtain information on the “financial or sexual impropriety” (i.e., blackmail) of top U.S. officials involved in drafting the accord. NBC News noted last year that “Black Cube’s political work frequently intersects with Israel’s foreign policy priorities.” As previously mentioned, one of Carbyne’s co-founders — Lital Leshem, also a veteran of Unit 8200 — worked for Black Cube prior to starting Carbyne.

One of the main companies profiled in the Calcalist Tech report appeared to be a front for Israeli intelligence, as its registered owner was found not to exist: even high-level employees at the company had never heard of him; his registered addresses were for nonexistent locations in Israel’s capital of Tel Aviv; and the three people with that name in Tel Aviv denied any association with the business.

This company — which Calcalist Tech was unable to name after the Israeli military censor determined that doing so could negatively impact Israeli “national security” — was deliberately created to service the Israeli military and Israeli intelligence. It is also “focused on cyber technologies with expertise in research and development of advanced products and applications suitable for defense and commercial entities.” (emphases added) In addition, the company’s management consists largely of “veterans of Israeli military technology units.”

Notably, a former employee of this company told Calcalist Tech that “crossing the lines between military service and employment at the commercial outfit was ‘commonplace’ while he was working at the company.”

It’s not exactly clear why Israel’s military intelligence and other intelligence agencies decided to begin outsourcing its operations in 2012, though Calcalist Tech suggests the reasoning was related to the difference in wages between the private sector and the public sector, with pay being much higher in the former. However, it is notable that 2012 was also the year that Paul Singer — together with Netanyahu’s long-time economic adviser and former chair of the Israeli National Economic Council, Eugene Kandel — decided to create Start-Up Nation Central.

As MintPress noted earlier this year, SUNC was founded as part of a deliberate Israeli government effort to counter the nonviolent Boycott, Divest and Sanctions (BDS) movement and to make Israel the dominant global “cyber power.” This policy is aimed at increasing Israel’s diplomatic power and specifically undermining BDS as well as the United Nations, which has repeatedly condemned Israel’s government for war crimes and violations of international law in relation to the Palestinians.

Last year, Netanyahu was asked by Fox News host Mark Levin whether the large growth seen in recent years in Israel’s technology sector, specifically tech start-ups, was part of Netanyahu’s plan. Netanyahu responded, “That’s very much my plan … It’s a very deliberate policy.” He later added that “Israel had technology because the military, especially military intelligence, produced a lot of capabilities. These incredibly gifted young men and women who come out of the military or the Mossad, they want to start their start-ups.”

Netanyahu again outlined this policy at the 2019 Cybertech Conference in Tel Aviv, where he stated that Israel’s emergence as one of the top five “cyber powers” had “required allowing this combination of military intelligence, academia and industry to converge in one place” and that this further required allowing “our graduates of our military and intelligence units to merge into companies with local partners and foreign partners.”

The direct tie-ins of SUNC to Israel’s government and the successful effort led by SUNC and other companies and organizations to place former military intelligence and intelligence operatives in strategic positions in major multinational technology companies reveal that this “deliberate policy” has had a major and undeniable impact on the global tech industry, especially in Silicon Valley.

Mossad gets its own In-Q-Tel
This “deliberate policy” of Netanyahu’s also recently resulted in the creation of a Mossad-run venture capital fund that is specifically focused on financing Israeli tech start-ups. The venture capital fund, called Libertad, was first announced by Israel’s Prime Minister’s Office and was created with the explicit purpose of “increasing the Israeli intelligence agency’s knowledge base and fostering collaboration with Israel’s vibrant startup scene” It was modeled after the CIA’s venture capital fund In-Q-Tel, which invested in several Silicon Valley companies turned government and intelligence contractors — including Google and Palantir — with a similar goal in mind.

Libertad declines to reveal the recipients of its funding, but announced last December that it had chosen five companies in the fields of robotics, energy, encryption, web intelligence, and natural language processing and text analysis. In regard to its interest in web intelligence, a Mossad employee told the Jerusalem Post that the intelligence agency was specifically interested in “innovative technologies for [the] automatic identification of personality characteristics – personality profiling – based on online behavior and activity, using methods based on statistics, machine learning, and other areas.” (emphasis added)

According to Libertad’s website, in return for its investment, now set at NIS 2 million (~$580,000) per year per company, “the Mossad will receive access to the IP [initial product] developed during R&D [Research and Development] while under contract, and a non-commercial, non-exclusive license to use it. Libertad’s contract with the company will not provide it with any additional rights.” In an interview with Calcalist Tech, Mossad Director Yossi Cohen told the paper that the Mossad’s partnership with civilian companies in Israel is “excellent” and that the agency will continue to strengthen those ties.

Israeli intelligence has a documented history in placing “backdoors” into technology products for the purpose of surveillance, with one well-known case being Israel’s repurposing of the PROMIS software, discussed in Part III of MintPress’ series on Jeffrey Epstein. Furthermore, given that U.S. intelligence, specifically the NSA, had “backdoors” placed into the products of major Silicon Valley companies (a service performed by Israeli intelligence-linked tech companies no less), Mossad may very well plan on doing the same with the technology products of companies it backs through Libertad.

Tim Shorrock, investigative journalist and author of Spies For Hire: The Secret World of Intelligence Outsourcing, told MintPress that the Mossad’s continuation of such practices through Libertad was definitely plausible, especially given what Shorrock described as the “unusual” choice of Libertad choosing not to release the identities of the companies in which it invests.

“The Mossad is trying to hide what they are investing in,” Shorrock stated, adding that Libertad’s secrecy “raises a lot of questions” particularly given that it was modeled after the CIA’s In-Q-Tel. Shorrock noted that In-Q-Tel and other venture capital funds with ties to U.S. intelligence or the U.S. military rarely, if ever, hide the identities of the companies they finance.


However, Libertad is merely the latest and most public expression of the Mossad’s interest in Israeli tech start-ups, the lion’s share of which are created by veterans of Unit 8200 or other Israeli intelligence agencies. Indeed, former Mossad Director Tamir Pardo stated in 2017 that “everyone” in the Israeli cybertechnology sector is an “alumni” of either Israeli intelligence, like the Mossad, or Israeli military intelligence, like Unit 8200. Pardo even went as far as to say that the Mossad itself is “like a start-up.”

Pardo himself, after leaving his post as Mossad director in 2016, dove straight into the world of Israeli tech start-ups, becoming chairman of Sepio Systems, whose two CEOs are former Unit 8200 officers. Sepio Systems’ advisory board includes the former chief information security officer of the CIA, Robert Bigman; former member of the U.S. Military’s Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC), Geoff Hancock; and former head of the Israel National Cyber Bureau and veteran of Israeli military intelligence, Rami Efrati. Sepio Systems’ cybersecurity software has been adopted by several banks, telecom and insurance companies, including in the U.S. and Brazil.

Pardo is not the only prominent figure in Israel’s intelligence community to compare Israeli intelligence agencies to tech start-ups. Shin Bet Director Nadav Argaman described Israel’s domestic spy agency in similar terms. “The Shin Bet is like an evolving start-up, with unmatched strength,” Argaman stated in a June 2017 speech, as he extolled the agency’s use of “pre-crime” technology to detain Palestinians based on their social media activity.

Argaman, at the time, claimed that more than 2,000 Palestinians, whom he described as “potential lone-wolf terrorists,” had been arrested as a result of these “breakthrough technological advances” that use artificial-intelligence algorithms to monitor the social media accounts of Palestinians, especially younger Palestinians, for the use of “tripwire” phrases that have been used by Palestinians who later committed acts of violence. In the case of those who use such terms, “their phones are tracked to see if they meet other suspects, or leave their districts to move towards potential Israeli targets. In such cases, security forces detain the suspect,” according to a 2017 report on the practice by The Economist.

The road to fascism, paved by a corrupted PROMIS
Though Israeli intelligence’s interest in tech companies goes back several years, there is a well-documented history of Israeli intelligence using bugged software to surveil and gain “backdoor” access to government databases around the world, particularly in the United States.

As was mentioned in Part III of MintPress’ Epstein series, a sinister yet cunning plan was executed to place a backdoor for Israeli intelligence into the Prosecutor’s Management Information System (PROMIS) software, which was then being used by the U.S. Department of Justice and was the envy of government agencies, particularly intelligence agencies, around the world. This bugged version of PROMIS — born out of the collusion between Earl Brian, Ronald Reagan’s then-envoy to Iran, and Rafi Eitan, then-director of the now-defunct Israeli intelligence agency Lekem — was seeded around the world by Brian’s company Hadron as well as by Mossad-linked media mogul Robert Maxwell, father of Jeffrey Epstein’s long-time girlfriend and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell.

After this first PROMIS “backdoor” was discovered, Israel would again gain access to sensitive U.S. government communications, as well as civilian communications, thanks to the collusion between Israeli intelligence and Israeli telecom and tech companies, especially Amdocs and Comverse Infosys (now Verint), that were operating throughout the United States. Today, Unit 8200-linked start-ups appear to have taken up the torch.

While the PROMIS software is perhaps best known for offering Israeli intelligence a backdoor into as many as 80 intelligence agencies and other sensitive locations around the world for nearly a decade, it was also used for a very different purpose by prominent officials linked to Iran-Contra.

One key Iran-Contra figure — Lt. Col. Oliver North, then serving on the National Security Council — decided to use PROMIS neither for espionage nor for foreign policy. Instead, North turned PROMIS’ power against Americans, particularly perceived dissidents, a fact that remained unknown for years.

Beginning in 1982, as part of the highly classified Continuity of Government (COG) program, North used the PROMIS software at a 6,100-square-foot “command center” in the Department of Justice, as well as at a smaller operations room at the White House, to compile a list of American dissidents and “potential troublemakers” if the COG protocol was ever invoked.

According to a senior government official with a high-ranking security clearance and service in five presidential administrations who spoke to Radar in 2008, this was:

A database of Americans, who, often for the slightest and most trivial reason, are considered unfriendly, and who, in a time of panic might be incarcerated. The database can identify and locate perceived ‘enemies of the state’ almost instantaneously.”

In 1993, Wired described North’s use of PROMIS in compiling this database as follows:

Using PROMIS, sources point out, North could have drawn up lists of anyone ever arrested for a political protest, for example, or anyone who had ever refused to pay their taxes. Compared to PROMIS, Richard Nixon’s enemies list or Sen. Joe McCarthy’s blacklist look downright crude.”

The COG program defined this “time of panic” as “a national crisis, such as nuclear war, violent and widespread internal dissent, or national opposition to a US military invasion abroad,” whereby the government would suspend the Constitution, declare martial law, and incarcerate perceived dissidents and other “unfriendlies” in order to prevent the government’s (or then-serving administration’s) overthrow.

This secretive database has often been referred to as “Main Core” by government insiders and, most troubling of all, it still exists today. Journalist Christ Ketcham, citing senior government officials, reported in 2008 that, at that time, Main Core was believed to contain the names of as many as 8 million Americans. Eleven years later, it is highly likely that the number of Americans included in the Main Core database has grown considerably.

Author and investigative journalist Tim Shorrock also covered other disturbing aspects of the evolution of Main Core back in 2008 for Salon. At the time, Shorrock reported that the George W. Bush administration was believed to have used Main Core to guide its domestic surveillance activities following the September 11 attacks.

Citing “several former U.S. government officials with extensive knowledge of intelligence operations,” Shorrock further noted that Main Core — as it was 11 years ago at the time his report was published — was said to contain “a vast amount of personal data on Americans, including NSA intercepts of bank and credit card transactions and the results of surveillance efforts by the FBI, the CIA and other agencies.”

Bill Hamilton, former NSA intelligence officer and the original creator of the PROMIS software, told Shorrock at the time that he believed that “U.S. intelligence uses PROMIS as the primary software for searching the Main Core database” and had been told as much by an intelligence official in 1992 and an NSA official in 1995. Dan Murphy, former deputy director at the CIA, had told Hamilton that the NSA’s use of PROMIS was “so seriously wrong that money alone cannot cure the problem.” “I believe in retrospect that Murphy was alluding to Main Core,” Hamilton had told Shorrock.

Though most reporting on Main Core, from the time its existence was first revealed to the present, has treated the database as something used by the U.S. government and U.S. intelligence for domestic purposes, MintPress has learned that Israeli intelligence was also involved with the creation of the Main Core database. According to a former U.S. intelligence official with direct knowledge of the U.S. intelligence community’s use of PROMIS and Main Core from the 1980s to 2000s, Israeli intelligence played a role in the U.S. government’s deployment of PROMIS as the software used for the Main Core domestic surveillance database system.

Israeli intelligence remained involved with Main Core at the time of the August 1991 death of journalist Danny Casolaro, who was investigating not only the government’s misuse of the stolen PROMIS software but also the Main Core database. This same official, who chose to remain anonymous, told MintPress that, shortly before his death, Casolaro had obtained copies of computer printouts from the PROMIS-based Main Core domestic surveillance database system from NSA whistleblower Alan Standorf, who was found murdered a few months before Casolaro’s lifeless body would be found in a West Virginia hotel room.

The source also stated that Main Core’s contents had been used for the political blackmail of members of Congress and their staff, journalists, and others by Walter Raymond, a senior CIA covert operator in psyops and disinformation who served on President Reagan’s National Security Council during and after Main Core’s creation. If used for this purpose by Raymond in the 1980s, Main Core has also likely been used by other individuals with access to the database for blackmailing purposes in the years since.

Given that Israeli intelligence was known to have placed a backdoor into the PROMIS software, before it was marketed and sold around the world by Earl Brian and Robert Maxwell, its role in the U.S. government’s decision to use PROMIS in the creation of Main Core suggests that Israeli intelligence likely advocated for the version of PROMIS containing this backdoor, thereby giving Israeli intelligence access to Main Core. Given that Reagan aides and officials colluded with Israeli “spymaster” Rafi Eitan in his efforts to create a backdoor into the software for Israeli military intelligence, the use of this version of PROMIS in the Main Core database is certainly plausible.

Furthermore, the fact that Israeli intelligence was known to be involved in Main Core nearly a decade after its creation suggests that Israeli intelligence may have played a role in certain aspects of the database, such as the criteria used to flag Americans as “unfriendly,” and — like Walter Raymond — may have used information in the database to blackmail Americans. In addition, the fact that the cooperation between U.S. and Israeli intelligence, particularly between Unit 8200 and the NSA, has only grown since 1991 further suggests that Israeli involvement in Main Core continues to the present.

While Main Core’s very existence is troubling for many reasons, the alleged involvement of a foreign intelligence service in the creation, expansion and maintenance of a database with personal details and potentially damaging information on millions of Americans targeted for detention or increased surveillance in times of crisis is chilling. It is especially so considering that the Trump administration’s latest proposals to prevent mass shootings before they occur are likely to use Main Core to flag certain Americans for increased surveillance or potentially detention, as was done by the George W. Bush administration following the September 11 attacks.

It appears that Main Core serves a dual purpose; first as a mass targeted surveillance system to crush dissent during times of “national crisis” — whether spontaneous or engineered — and, second, as a massive blackmail database used to keep every potential opponent in line during non-emergencies.

Peter Thiel’s Seeing Stone
As was mentioned earlier in this report, Palantir — the company co-founded by Peter Thiel — is set to profit handsomely from the Trump administration’s plans to use its “pre-crime” technology, which is already used by police departments throughout the country and also used to track Americans based on the company’s integrative data-mining approach. Palantir, named for the “seeing stones” in the Lord of the Rings novels, also markets software to foreign (and domestic) intelligence agencies that predicts the likelihood that an individual will commit an act of terrorism or violence.

Aside from its “pre-crime” products, Palantir has come under fire in recent years as a result of the company’s contracts with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), where it created an intelligence system known as Investigative Case Management (ICM). The IB Times described ICM as “a vast ‘ecosystem’ of data to help immigration officials in identifying targets and creating cases against them” and also “provides ICE agents with access to databases managed by other federal agencies.” ICM further gives ICE access to “targets’ personal and sensitive information, such as background on schooling, employment, family relationships, phone records, immigration history, biometrics data, criminal records as well as home and work addresses.” In other words, Palantir’s ICM is essentially a “Main Core” for immigrants.

Notably, part of Oliver North’s original intentions in “Main Core” was to track immigrants then coming from Central America as well as Americans who opposed Reagan era policy with respect to Central America. At that time, Main Core was believed to be controlled by the Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA), which is now part of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

VICE News reported in July that the Northern California Regional Intelligence Center, which is run by DHS, “serves around 300 communities in northern California and is what is known as a ‘fusion center,’ a Department of Homeland Security intelligence center that aggregates and investigates information from state, local, and federal agencies, as well as some private entities, into large databases that can be searched using software like Palantir. “ VICE further noted that this center alone used Palantir to surveil as many as 8 million Ameicans. There are many more such DHS “fusion centers” throughout the United States.

If the Trump administration moves forward with its proposal of employing technology to detect potential mass shooters before they strike, Palantir’s technology is set to be used, given that it has already been used by U.S. law enforcement and U.S. intelligence to determine which people run “the highest risk of being involved in gun violence,” according to an investigation of Palantir by The Verge. Furthermore, Palantir’s close ties to the Trump administration make the company’s role in a future nationwide “pre-crime” prevention system based on technology appear inevitable.

Worse still is the apparent overlap between Palantir and Main Core. Palantir — which has obvious similarities to PROMIS — is already known to use its software to track potential terror threats, including domestic terror threats, and a category of people it refers to as “subversives.” Palantir’s tracking of these individuals “is all done using prediction.” Palantir’s close ties to the U.S. intelligence community suggest that Palantir may already have access to the Main Core database. Tim Shorrock told MintPress that Palantir’s use of Main Core is “certainly possible,” particularly in light of the company’s use of the term “subversive” to describe a category of people that its software tracks.

Palantir also has alleged ties to Israeli intelligence, as there have long been suspicions that Israeli intelligence has used Palantir as part of its AI “pre-crime” algorithms targeting Palestinians after Palantir opened a research and development (R&D) center in Israel in 2013. The current head of Palantir Israel, Hamultal Meridor, previously founded a brain-machine interface organization and was senior director of web intelligence at Verint (formerly Comverse Infosys), which has deep connections to Unit 8200, a history of espionage in the United States and was one of the two companies contracted by the NSA to insert a “backdoor” into the U.S. telecommunications system and popular products of major American tech companies.

Given the above, Peter Thiel’s 2018 decision to fund Carbyne, the Unit 8200-linked start-up that markets itself as a technological solution to mass shootings in the U.S., strongly suggests that Thiel has been anticipating for some time the now-public efforts of the Trump administration to employ “pre-crime” technology to track and target Americans who show signs of “mental illness” and “violent tendencies.”

A nightmare even Orwell could not have predicted
In early August, in the wake of the shooting at an El Paso Walmart, President Trump called on big tech companies to collaborate with the Justice Department in the creation of software that “stops mass murders before they start” by detecting potential mass shooters before they cnm act. Though Trump’s ideas were short on specifics, there is now a new proposal that would create a new government agency that will use data gathered from civilian electronic devices to identify “neurobehavioral” warning signs, thereby flagging “potential shooters” for increased surveillance and potentially detention.

This new agency, as proposed by the foundation led by former NBC Universal president and vice chairman of General Electric Robert Wright, would be known as the Health Advanced Research Projects Agency (HARPA) and would be modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Per the proposal, recently detailed by the Washington Post, the flagship program of HARPA would be “Safe Home” (Stopping Aberrant Fatal Events by Helping Overcome Mental Extremes), which would use “breakthrough technologies with high specificity and sensitivity for early diagnosis of neuropsychiatric violence,” specifically “advanced analytical tools based on artificial intelligence and machine learning.”

The program would cost an estimated $60 million over four years and would use data from “Apple Watches, Fitbits, Amazon Echo and Google Home” and other consumer electronic devices, as well as information provided by health-care providers to identify who may be a threat.

The Washington Post reported that President Trump has reacted “very positively” to the proposal and that he was “sold on the concept.” The Post also noted that Wright sees the president’s daughter, Ivanka, as “the most effective champion of the proposal and has previously briefed her on HARPA himself.” Ivanka has previously been cited as a driving force behind some of her father’s policy decisions, including his decision to bomb Syria after an alleged chemical weapons attack in 2017.

Liz Fed — president of the Susan Wright Foundation, which is led by Robert Wright and created the proposal for HARPA and “Safe Home” — told The Post that the proposal emulated DARPA because “DARPA is a brilliant model that works. They have developed the most transformational capabilities in the world for national security…We’re not leveraging the tools and technologies available to us to improve and save lives.” Fed further asserted that DARPA’s technological approach had yet to be applied to the field of healthcare.

For anyone familiar with DARPA, such claims should immediately sound loud alarm bells, especially since DARPA is already developing its own solution to “mental health” issues in the form of a “brain-machine interface” as part of its N3 program. That program, according to reports, involves “noninvasive and ‘minutely’ invasive neural interfaces to both read and write into the brain,” help distance soldiers “from the emotional guilt of warfare” by “clouding their perception” and “to program artificial memories of fear, desire, and experiences directly into the brain.” Though N3 is intended to improve the prowess of American soldiers, it is also set to be used as a means of pursuing DARPA’s Systems-Based Neurotechnology for Emerging Therapies (SUBNETS) project, which aims to “to develop a tiny, implanted chip in the skull to treat psychiatric disorders such as anxiety, PTSD and major depression.”

Given that HARPA’s lead scientific adviser is Dr. Geoffrey Ling, former director and founder of DARPA’s Biological Technologies Office (BTO), which “merges biology, engineering, and computer science to harness the power of natural systems for national security,” it seems likely that DARPA’s neurological-focused research programs, like SUBNETS and N3, would be folded into HARPA’s portfolio, making the proposed agency’s approach to mental health very questionable indeed.

Aside from the dystopian nature of both DARPA and potentially HARPA’s approach to mental health, there is grave cause for concern regarding the Trump administration’s moves to address U.S. mass shooting events by implementing pre-crime technology based on artificial intelligence, data-mining and mass surveillance, technologies already laying in wait thanks to companies like Palantir and numerous Israeli tech start-ups led by former Unit 8200 officers.

With companies like Carbyne — with its ties to both the Trump administration and to Israeli intelligence — and the Mossad-linked Gabriel also marketing themselves as “technological” solutions to mass shootings while also doubling as covert tools for mass data collection and extraction, the end result is a massive surveillance system so complete and so dystopian that even George Orwell himself could not have predicted it.

Following another catastrophic mass shooting or crisis event, aggressive efforts will likely follow to foist these “solutions” on a frightened American public by the very network connected, not only to Jeffrey Epstein, but to a litany of crimes and a frightening history of plans to crush internal dissent and would-be dissenters in the United States.

Hoffman, golem Sanhedrin


The imaginative creation of the unmistakable rabbinic doctrine of Kabbalistic tikkun olam ("repair of the world") that gives God-like powers to fix a shattered vessel (the world) to a judaized man is at the heart of the drive to differentiate Judaism from Christianity. It's materialism versus idealism where

What was this secret philosophy? It was the unmistakable rabbinic doctrine, expressed in the Kabbalistic texts as tikkun olam (“repair of the world”) whereby Judaic (or Judaized) man assumes God-like powers to “correct” an “imperfect” and “flawed” Creation. The groundwork for the “repair” is rooted in government micro-management of our lives, along Talmudic lines of hair-splitting minutiae (cf. BT Gittin 4). Such unyielding bureaucracy paves the way for the apparatus of total control.

Kabbalistic mysticism emerges as the antidote to control, in this dialectical process. Here too is the central contradiction in this doctrine, for it nearly always advertizes itself to its New Age and pseudo-Christian percipients as a means for achieving healing, harmony, tranquility, balance, and bliss. Yet when the magical doctrines of Kabbalism came to ideological dominance in the 18th century, producing the so-called “Age of Enlightenment,” they produced not the path to renewal of the earth and a return to Eden, but the imposition and reign of “the Satanic mills” of the industrial revolution and a foreshadowing of the subjugation of humanity by an esoteric elite by means of machine surveillance control.

The dialectical process engendered by immersion in rabbinic ideology of redemption of the world produced a cataclysmic reversal, a “profound irony” missed by most of the historians of modern science. The supposed Kabbalistic philosophy of “harmony” espoused by Kabbalistic, gentile Renaissance occultists such as Pico, Reuchlin, Giorgio and Dee, led to the imposition of the tyranny of rationalism and materialism, in what Frances Yates terms a momentous shift from magic to mechanism: “It is one of the more profound ironies of the history of thought that the growth of mechanical science, through which arose the idea of mechanism as a possible philosophy of nature, was itself an outcome of the Renaissance magical tradition.

Mechanism divested of magic became the philosophy which was to oust Renaissance animism and to replace the ‘conjuror’ by the mechanical philosopher.” Once the principle of the religion of Judaism as expressed in the Kabbalah, of man’s prideful, god-like power and his lofty “right” to tamper with Divine Creation, was established, and scientism began to emerge as a system of thinking and action unfettered by traditional restraints and fear of God, the mystical aspects of the philosophy were discarded, leaving Satanic pride to wed itself to technological prowess. —Michael Hoffman, Judaism Discovered, 2008, Independent History and Research, pg. 817-819

Hoffman provides a well-known Jewish example of this alchemical process in the Golem in Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare (1989), Our would be-psychic engineers and human alchemists are well aware of the nearness of midnight in this, their ‘low bottom twelve’ time-cycle. They teeter on the brink of the synthesis of the darkest dream of the Kabbalists, a marriage frantically sought, between E. coli bacteria from the colon of man, the genome code and the power of computer automata, for the creation of the Golem. A theological conception of the creation of an animate being by man rather than God is found in the Babylonian Talmud (Sanhedrin 65b): ‘Rabbi Rava created a man and sent him to Rabbi Zera.’

According to Emily Bilski and Dr. Moshe Idel of Hebrew University, Jerusalem: ‘Found in a major authoritative Jewish text, this passage (from the Talmud) indicates that Judaism accepted the idea of the creation of an artificial man…At issue was the claim that Jews could attain a major achievement, that Jewish masters possessed the highest magical powers.’ The techniques for fabricating the golem are located in a Kabbalistic book, the Sefer Yezirah…thus it was that the Renaissance magical tradition gave birth to the monstrous world of machines, industrial pollution, ugliness, and the modern ways of death we have come to term, ‘the rat race.’

H+ techno religion spirituality

Perceived as the century with the fastest developments in technology, the 21st century has imposed a series of paradigm shifts, which implicated both the concepts of religion and spirituality. In this new paradigm, transhumanism represents a mechanism of the relative deterritorialization of religion/spirituality from their traditional-metaphysical system, and of their reterritorialization within the rational-scientific system that characterizes technological progress of the 21st century. At this level, personal development mechanisms go from the register of traditional methods to the improvements brought by the principles of transhumanist philosophy (the principles of extropy). The general objective of this paper is to analyze these new mechanisms of the transgression of human limits, and those of the traditional concepts of religion, personal development and spirituality, within the paradigm of transhumanist philosophy--governed by a technooptimistic ideology. At this level, according to interpretations of Michel Foucault's theories, we encounter a new technological 'regime of truth' regarding the new dimensions of religion and spirituality, both found under the dominance of technology: an aspect that permits us to talk about a 'techno-religion' and a 'technological spirituality'. This theoretical objective follows the process of deterritorialization-reterritorialization (approached within Gilles Deleuze's philosophy), applied to the philosophical theories of Ray Kurzweil and Max More, in order to emphasize the phenomenon of the fusion of the concept of spirituality with that of technology, forming a new territorial system: that of the rhizomatic post-transcendence technology, generated by technological singularity. Key words: transhumanism, extropy, religion, technological singularity, personal development, technological spirituality.

Tavistock Black people

Black people and the Tavistock Institute Dear Brothers and Sisters, Imagine that a stranger broke into your home, robbing it, leaving it in ruins and then kidnapped your children to work as servants within his home. This stranger, fearing an eventual retribution from these kidnapped children will find it necessary to implement systems for ensuring that these children remain loyal. The stranger may do so by routinely showing the children pictures of their ruined former home while falsely retelling the details of the event that he merely rescued them from the ruins and that their parents didn’t want them. This would cause the children to develop an undeserving sense of loyalty and appreciation towards their kidnapper. The kidnapper may also find it necessary to implement a scheme to divide the children, to prevent them from unifying against him, by teaching them not to trust each other while simultaneously teaching them to trust only him. Such a system with an objective of controlling the exploited group has been implemented against Black people. The above scenario is precisely what is being secretly done to Black people through a covert sophisticated mass marketing campaign that uses propaganda and public manipulations practices as a means to exploit and control the Black population. The common feelings of Black self hatred accompanied by an undeserving admiration towards whiteness, among so many Black people, are not merely indirect consequences of white cultural dominance upon the Black psyche, but rather instead the direct result of an insidious massive white global manipulation scheme. The constant relentless bombardment with deplorably negative images of themselves that of which Black people are so inundated with throughout the media is a very carefully and deliberately insidious designed psychological conditioning program. It is designed to subject Black people to seeing, through a totally white controlled national media, only the fraudulent worst in themselves —while insinuating that they admire, respect, and trust only Whites. The basis of this concept of mind manipulation is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind and it works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. It is deployed very much like a massive marketing campaign. It’s propaganda and manipulations practices are being deployed in a ll sectors - government, media, health and welfare, entertainment, and education, etc- nationally and internationally. Its weapon is the message that it carries and the way that it adversely affects the targeted Black recipient group in terms of their behavior. Its unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche corrupts many Black’s sense of racial unity and cohesion, mold the character of self -hatred, and engender selfdoubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group. It is also deliberately designed to collectively break down the Black populous' sense of personal knowledge in Black identity, Black racial heritage, allegiance and unity. It also collectively encourages Blacks to admire and love whites while blaming and hating themselves for their current despairing conditions historically created and presently continued by the white elites. The objective of this diabolical mass manipulations scheme against the Black race is to ensure the continuance of white dominance and control. It is being orchestrated by an extremely powerful and influential group of white individuals, at the highest echelons, which include many of the world's wealthiest people, top political leaders, and corporate elite. The consensus of these white elites are that such a manipulative scheme against the Black population is deemed necessary, because not only have they brutally exploited the Black world in the past during the era of slavery and colonialization, but also because their mistreatment of the Black world is ongoing through western pharmaceutal companies that uses Africa as a testing ground for its experimental drugs, unfair federal prison sentencing laws that targets Black populations, ongoing unfair trade practices that keeps Africa in poverty, western government’s economic hit men and war making espionage specialist that keeps Africans at war thus facilitating a setting of where in which Africa is more easily ravished of its natural resources –all while portraying the image to the world that it is merely Africans that are unable to govern themselves. Many researchers have concluded that this insidious racist propaganda manipulations program was originally orchestrated by London's Tavistock Institute of Human relations. Headquartered in London, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations is a leading organization in the use of new and experimental behavioral science programs. The Tavistock Institute is an independent organization that conducts research in the social and behavioral sciences, applied in the field of health, education and community development. Among the Tavistock Institute's specialties is a study group that predicts the timing and the

direction of a thermonuclear war, plus working out the many scenarios based upon its findings. Its research orientation places it between, but not in, the worlds of academia and consultancy; and its range of disciplines include anthropology, economics, organizational behavior, political science, psychoanalysis, psychology and sociology. However BRAINWASHING remains the primary function of the Tavistock Institute of Human behavior. It has developed pioneering breakthroughs in the field of mass manipulation and brain-washing techniques. Its experiments in crowd control methods have been widely used on the American public, a surreptitious but nevertheless outrageous assault on human freedom by modifying individual behavior through topical psychology. The Tavistock Institute uses its skilled method of mass manipulation and societal social engineering to maintain social order-of which includes maintaining white dominance and control. Although it had existed for decades earlier, the Tavistock Institute of Human Relations was formally established as an independent not-for-profit charity organization in September 1947. The Institute’s prophet was Dr. Sigmund Freud, whom settled in Maresfield Gardens when he moved to England. Tavistock's pioneer work in science along Freudian lines of "controlling" humans established it as the world center of foundation ideology. One of its prestige’s contributing members was Freud’s nephew and propaganda specialist Dr. Edward Bernays. He was one of the most skillful experts in mass manipulation. Dr. Edward Bernay’s invented the public relations profession in the 1920s and was the first person to take Freud's ideas to manipulate the masses. ―If we understand the mechanism and motives of a group mind, it is now possible to control and regiment the masses according to our will without them knowing it" -- Dr. Edward Bernays It is surmised that this psychosocial manipulation of Black people was implemented in America in 1968 in the face of widespread violence that ensued after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King’s brutal assassination led to many demonstrations of unrest and rioting disturbances; that of which were reported in more than 100 cities across the nation. This violence resulted in the loss of lives and property that cost the nation and taxpayers millions of dollars and increasingly placed the peace and stability of the nation in dire jeopardy. America’s brutal racial mistreatment of African Americans had appeared to have reached its boiling point creating much unrest and discord. These factors, combined with the rapidly tarnishing American global image, led the U.S. Government’s agents of White s upremacy to quickly reform their techniques of institutionalized racism. The problem led to the then president, Lyndon B Johnson, ordering that a commission be formed, later known as the Kerner Commission, to investigate and prescribe a cure or recommendations for the problem. The Commission concluded that blatant White racism was the single aggravating factor for the collective problems. The Kerner report’s findings required that the U.S. Government abandon it’s condoning of open, blatant forms of racism to control and maintain White dominance. This abandoning of dated tactics led to the need for developing an improved method of controlling and suppressing its Black population. Changing times made it necessary for the U.S. government to change its methods to a much more subtle and socially acceptable means of continuing its racial suppression of Blacks and to maintain its White dominance. Clearly, the sophisticated method of psychological warfare met such a need. It was the logical choice, perfect for the changing times. Unlike the blatantly brutal forms of racism used in the past, which Blacks were able to identify easily and therefore unify and form counter strategies, this modern method of racism works from a psychological perspective. This provided the U.S. government a more socially acceptable method of continuing the White racial hierarchy for dominance and control given that it is not as easily recognized. This new method exists in the space between overt racism and racial respect. Its methods include the ability to both influence the national climate and engender personal psychological feelings among Americans that meet the U.S government objective. Today as a means of maintaining its white dominance and control the U.S. government now manipulates, and shapes the minds and collective consciousness of its Black population through the usage of misinformation disseminated through the mass media. In the U.S. it was organized by Ronald Lippert, of the OSS, the American Jewish Congress, and director of child training at the Commission on Community Relations. The program was designed to break down the Black individual's sense of personal knowledge in his identity, his racial heritage. The basis of this concept of mind manipulation is that the human being's most critical aspect is the mind and it works by affecting the unconscious mind through deception. Its weapon is the message that it

carries and the way that it adversely affects the targeted recipient group in terms of their behavior. Here is a simplified example of how this is being implemented against African Americans. Let us, for example, imagine that a crew of people was aboard their own massive ship and that this ship was being shadowed by another neighboring ship that was constantly broadcasting derogatory messages to the first group. Such messages as that their ship was lesser, smaller, not seaworthy, perhaps slowly sinking or that their crew was incompetent and was planning a mutiny. With time, the group receiving the negative messages, being unable to refute or to confirm these derogatory messages and deficiencies will grow weary and paranoid of the negative messages and will eventually comes to accept these negative assessments of themselves. The perception created by the taunting now unconsciously influences how the taunted group perceives themselves, subsequently causing them to become distrustful of themselves, doubting themselves, hating themselves and, eventually, fighting among themselves. The taunted group may even become so besieged by deep feelings of inadequacy that they may even jump into the sea and attempt to swim towards the taunting ship now believing it to be superior to their own boat even if their own ship was in fact better. Within a real life setting this mortifying psychological manipulation is precisely what is being done to African Americans through an immense campaign of false derogatory misinformation and false negative media reports and statistics that are created by U.S. governmental agencies and then leaked to its collaborators in the news media, which either knowingly or unknowingly carry the stories as their own. These false information about African Americans is then disseminated unrelentingly everywhere; it is deliberately perpetuated through news releases in magazine articles, radio, television, press releases, documentaries, and false census reports perpetuating and framing the myth of Whites’ racial, moral, and ethical superiority over its Black population. However, the weapon is not in how the message is carried, but is instead within the messages that it carries and how these messages affect the targeted recipients. The constant relentless bombardment with deplorably negative images of themselves that of which African Americans are so inundated with throughout the media is a very carefully and deliberately designed psychological conditioning program. It is designed to subject African Americans to seeing, through a controlled national media, only the worst in themselves-- while insinuating that they admire, respect, and trust only Whites. This unrelenting daily assault on the Black psyche is designed to corrupt African Americans’ sense of racial unity and cohesion, mold the character of self -hatred, and engender self-doubt, self-loathing, and distrust among their group. Many Blacks may even begin to feel that there is something not quite right about their Black humanity. To the detriment of Blacks, this system of applied psychological conditioning has been an extremely effective. It has successfully conditioned many African Americans to accept the dominance of Whites and white institutions over their lives by misleading them to believe that they are, themselves, their own worst enemies, therefore engendering an aberration of internalized self contempt that pulverizes Black unity and halts Black upward mobility. All people are products of cultural conditions and their worldviews operate outside of their level of consciousness. Therefore, no group can be preconditioned to see only the worst in themselves and not exhibit some degree of negative psychological impact. This mass manipulation program is In fact, so proficient at damaging the Black self-perception that tragically it has become easier for many Blacks to accept derogatory premises of themselves rather than recognizing this program. This mass psychological conditioning program also significantly influences society as a whole. Its ultimate goal is to foster a consensual national setting of where in which Blacks are more easily divided, exploited and ultimately suppressed. The media’s driven psychosocial program is also being done to create a shift of victimization that changes the root problem of racism in America to be due to Black’s behavior rather than White’s proclivity for racism. Therefore it engenders prejudiced distorted perceptions and acrimonious beliefs about African Americans that are designed to makes the nation and the entire world insensitive to their plight, tranquilizes efforts on their behalf, lessens pressure for social change on their behalf and makes any serious criticism of White racism almost impossible today and attempts discourage miscegenation between Blacks and whites. It also creates a false justification for the legal system’s mistreatment of African Americans. Wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. These injustices now goes ignored because the perception has become that it’s all now justified. When contempt of Blacks is made to appear to be justifiable, it is the most fiercest and effective type of racism because its witnesses, bystanders, and even world audiences will sit by idly allowing African Americans to be brutally mistreated disproportionately incarcerated under the belief that it is justified.] It

also affects attitudes that when enacted through governmental policies, laws, and other legislation actions, serve to ensure that African Americans will not advance. Its effects are manifested in ideas, education, governmental policies, economic stratification, social segregation, housing markets, hiring and promotion practices, psychological issues, and minority access to a variety of social services and opportunity. This campaign successfully stripped African Americans of the national and international support that was acquired during the 1960's civil rights struggles. This anti Black governmental campaign of psychological warfare also creates a false justification for the l egal system’s mistreatment of African Americans wherein they are disproportionately incarcerated, given stiffer sentences, and are more likely than other racial groups to be treated brutally, beaten, and fired upon by police officers while they are unarmed. Moreover, some studies have shown that this shift of victimization now reflects increasingly acrimonious beliefs and prejudiced perceptions about and against African Americans that are arguably stronger today than they were after emancipation. The objective of the United States government has always been to maintain its White dominance over its Black population, and clearly, psychological warfare meets this need —because it covertly creates a national climate that allows the government to suppress consensually the advancement of its African American population and to maintain its White dominance and control

ritual abuse & mind control

It was against the backdrop of Larson’s book that I read two other books: an edited volume entitled Ritual Abuse and Mind Control: The Manipulation of Attachment Needs (published in 2011 with the help of the Bowlby Centre) and Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses by Daniel Estulin (2015). I read these two books because a Bowlby Less Traveled (BLT) reader recommended them. In an email, this reader asked me point blank, “Was Bowlby’s theory of attachment used for mind control?” Frankly, I have no idea. The only possible example that came to mind was Lt. Col. Grossman’s account of how organizational engineering techniques used during the Vietnam War played havoc with the attachment bonds soldiers formed with each other. (See my April 7th, 2016, blog post entitled Viewing Millennials’ Embrace of Socialism as Locked Mourning for a summary of Grossman’s account.) I figured that I’d take a closer look at attachment and mind control and report back here at BLT. If what I am about to tell you is true, then this might as well be my last BLT blog post. Read more, if you dare, as I rip the Band-Aid off of Tavistock and mind control.

In my self-published book Bowlby’s Battle for Round Earth (2011), I present a model that tries to summarize the major themes of systems thinking from about 1929 (when Ludwig von Bertalanffy reports he began work on General System Theory) until the present. Leading up to the start of WWII, systems thinking was influenced by two major philosophical trends: reductionism (e.g., breaking wholes into parts and examining those parts in isolation), and humanism (e.g., investigating the relationships expressed by systems within the context of a whole, say, a biological organism). Norbert Wiener (arguably the father of cybernetics) is associated with the reductionism trend. Bertalanffy (arguably the father of organismic systems theory) is associated with the humanism trend. Neither of these systems thinking trends gained much traction until the outbreak of WWII. During WWII, both trends were called upon to help with the war effort. Wiener helped develop guided antiaircraft gun systems. Betalanffy put forward the idea that organic systems could be self-directed and goal oriented (e.g., purposeful). The WWII war effort allowed both trends to gain traction and also to mix. As I have pointed out many times before, John Bowlby was well aware of both trends. Consider this quote by Bowlby from the first volume of his trilogy on attachment:

At one time to attribute purposiveness to animals or to build a psychology of human behavior on the concept of purposefulness was to declare oneself a vitalist and to be banned from the company of respectable scientists. The development of control systems of increasing sophistication, such as those that control a homing missile, has changed that. Today [the mid-1960s] it is recognized that a machine incorporating feedback can be truly goal-directed. Thus it comes about that nowadays to attribute purposiveness to behaviour and to think, if not teleologically, at least teleonomically is not only common sense, as it always was, but also good science.

Ultimately, Bowlby would go on to use the humanist trend as a backdrop to his work. However, the reductionist trend was never far away. During what I am calling the UK Macy Conferences (which took place from 1953 until 1956 in Geneva), Bowlby came into contact with systems thinkers representing both trends. (See my August 5th, 2016, blog post entitled Where Da UK Macy Conferences?—A Brief Look at “Traditions of Systems Theory.”) Here’s a partial list of the UK participants and their area of expertise. [1] You will no doubt recognize a few of these names:

Dr. John Bowlby—psychoanalysis

Dr. Frank Fremont-Smith—director of research at the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation

Bärbel Inhelder—psychology

Dr. Konrad Lorenz—ethology (animal studies)

Dr. Margaret Mead—cultural anthropology

Professor Jean Piaget—cognitive psychology

Dr. R.R. Struthers—formerly associate director, Rockefeller Foundation, Paris

Dr. J.M. Tanner—human biology

Dr. W. Grey Walter—electrophysiology

Professor Erik Erikson—psychoanalysis

Dr. Julian Huxley—biology and evolution

Dr. Ludwig von Bertalanffy—general biology

I’d be remiss if I did not point out that a series of Macy Conferences were held in the US (again, see my August 5th, 2016, post). These conferences took place from 1943 to 1954. A few of the participants attended both the US and UK conferences, most notably Margaret Mead and Frank Fremont-Smith. In her 1999 book entitled How We Became Posthuman, Katherine Hayles has an entire chapter on the US Macy Conferences. I am by no measure an expert in systems thinking and theory. For what I consider to be a great summary of the systems story—both trends—see Debora Hammond’s 2003 book entitled The Science of Synthesis—Exploring the Social Implications of General System Theory.

In the model I present in Bowlby’s Battle, I see these two systems trends—reductionism and humanism—becoming separate once again after the close of the 1950s. In my view, the reductionist or mechanistic trend continued on unabated. This trend has given us such cybernetic feedback systems or algorithms as Amazon.com, Facebook, Google, Siri (and all of the current crop of “talk to” personal assistants), TiVo, Netflix, Twitter, and on the list goes. For a good book on this theme, see Andy Clark’s 2003 book entitled Natural-Born Cyborgs: Minds, Technologies, and the Future of Human Intelligence. In contrast, the humanistic trend goes through three waves of development as outlined in Gerald Midgley’s 2000 book entitled Systemic Intervention. Biological frames characterize the first wave; sociological frames the second, and emancipatory frames the third. Again, Bowlby operated primarily out of the first wave, which was focused on biological systems (i.e., innate behavioral systems such as attachment, sex, and caregiving(receiving)). To a large degree, feminists and other social reformers brought about the second and third waves, each of which creates distance from any biological explanations. On a simple level, feminists wished to distance themselves from anything smacking of biological determinism: “biology as destiny.” By wave three, feminists (and a number of other social reformers) wished to be liberated from anything smacking of male oppression. In my model, I see the quest for wave three liberation short-circuiting against cybernetic systems and their promise of mechanically based life. I see this arcing of energy as lighting the way toward posthumanism or transhumanism: people as mechanically based entities or cyborgs.

These are not new ideas. Hayles (mentioned above) talks about them. And you can find them discussed at length in an edited volume entitled The Gendered Cyborg: A Reader (2000). Again, I was not trying to come up with new ideas: I was simply trying to track what happened to Bowlby’s theory and why. Or, on a more general level, what happened to organismic systems theory (as held by wave one systems thinking). Feminist psychoanalyst Susie Orbach says it best when she tells us, “Feminist analysts … had a difficult time with what they perceived as Bowlby’s valourisation of the maternal [and, by extension, maternal biology] at a moment when we were trying to understand the relationship of women’s oppression to the structure of the nuclear family.” [2]

So, now back to Estulin’s book Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses. [3] Simply, Estulin frames the elements contained in my model as comprising one big conspiracy. At the heart of this conspiracy we find the Tavistock Institute. In Estulin’s view, Tavistock was (and still is) hell-bent on bringing about mind control, and, by extension, world control. Estulin has an entire chapter on the US Macy Conferences. Apparently the US Macy Conferences were about turning people into machines (i.e., through transhumanism) so that they could be easily controlled. “The bizarre Macy cocktail blend of the late 1940s and the early 1950s,” writes Estulin, “became one of the primary covert funding conduits for the CIA through Macy Foundation director Frank Fremont-Smith.” Yeow! Note above that Frank Fremont-Smith helped organize the UK Macy Conferences. Frankly, this is a side of the Macy Conferences that I was not aware of. Estulin continues, “[A] significant number of the Macy Foundation conference members such as Gregory Bateson [of family systems theory fame], Margret Mead [who was once married to Bateson], and psychologist Kurt Lewin [who developed organizational engineering] worked closely with the U.S. government during the Cold War under covert MK-ULTRA drug brainwashing experiments on the one hand and psychedelic drugs as a means of social manipulation on the other.” [4]

Estulin puts forward the idea that such things as group therapy, family systems theory, and therapy in general all came out of secret meetings designed to bring about social manipulation and control. How about the feminist movement? Yup, it too came out of secret meetings. As a matter of fact, according to Estulin, Margaret Mead was the principal animator (or should I say agitator) behind the feminist movement. So, whereas I suggest that a number of chance events came together accidentally to pave the way toward our posthuman future, Estulin tries to convince us that all of this was planned well in advance, a fait accompli.

Most of you know that John Bowlby spent most of his career at the Tavistock Institute. He did participate in the UK Macy Conferences. Eric Trist was one of Bowlby’s war colleagues and, according to the research Suzan van Dijken presents in her 1998 book entitled John Bowlby—His Early Years, Bowlby knew of work by social psychologist Kurt Lewin. Suffice it to say that Estulin views Trist and Lewin as two men who regularly consorted with Satan himself. “[I]n combination with the work of Lewin, Trist and [John Rawlings] Rees at Tavistock … [psychedelic] drugs, spiritual techniques and laboratory tests opened a Pandora’s Box of suffering, violence and perhaps even redemption, through transformation: the Black Box of consciousness,” writes Estulin. He continues, “In this, Tavistock, the world’s premier brainwashing institute, was unwittingly following in the steps of magicians, sorcerers, gurus and cultists the world over.”

How much of this is true? I have no idea. How much was Bowlby caught up in this? Again, I have no idea. Estulin never mentions Bowlby directly. In the introduction to his 2000 book entitled Rule by Secrecy, journalist Jim Marrs suggests that there are two ways to view world events: as accidents, or as the product of conspiracies. “The issue of conspiracy … lies at the heart of how one views history. Here there are only two views: accidental or conspiratorial,” alerts Marrs. I guess my model takes an accidental approach. Clearly the Bowlby story, and along with it the Tavistock story, could be looked at using a conspiratorial approach. But in the final analysis, does it matter? Whether by chance or by plan, the feminist desire for emancipation—especially liberation from body and biology—is meeting up with the promises offered by cybernetics: mechanical or cyborg bodies. At this stage, railing at conspirators or the fates will not do much good. Transhumanism is here and as James Barrat suggests in the title to his 2013 book, transhumanism may well be Our Final Invention.

Are there secret groups and conspiracies? Sure. I think the story of the Lusitania points this out. Should we see conspiracies everywhere? I think there is a danger here. Conspiracy then takes on the form of a boogeyman or other to be feared without thought or reflection (like communists during the Cold War and terrorists today). And isn’t this the goal of mind control: non-reflective, knee jerk reactions. When it comes to conspiracies and mind control, the following saying comes to mind: “The lady doth protest too much, methinks.” [5]

Notes:

[1] There were four meetings of the UK Macy Conferences. Transcripts from all four meetings were pulled together, edited by J.M. Tanner and Bärbel Inhelder (longtime collaborator of Jean Piaget), and published under the title Discussions on Child Development (1971), published by Tavistock Publications. I was able to purchase a used copy through Amazon.com.

[2] The full reference is Why Is Attachment in the Air? (1999, Psychoanal. Dial., vol 9, p. 73–83).

[3] I will not be talking about Ritual Abuse and Mind Control: The Manipulation of Attachment Needs. This book contains gripping stories from survivors of mind control and ritual abuse, and the brave therapists who have spent years working with these survivors. I may talk about this book at a later date.

[4] Estulin suggests that the Woodstock Music Festival, along with a number of other such festivals during the late 1960s and into the 1970s, were testing grounds for the use of psychedelic drugs as a form of mind control. This is the era of Timothy Leary and Ken Kesey, who, according to Estulin, were both CIA operatives.

[5] As a part of writing this post, I reread the first part of Jim Marrs’ book Rule by Secrecy. Marrs starts out by talking about the Rockefeller family and all that they did to make their fortune (mainly in oil but also banking). Marrs points out that the Rockefeller story is filled with secret meetings. And, apparently, the Rockefellers were ruthless businessmen, often buying or putting out of business competitors. Maybe I’m a bit jaundiced but I found myself saying, “But isn’t this just business?” How many behind the scenes machinations took place during the recently completed presidential election? Plenty. Marrs even talks about how secret societies groomed Hillary Clinton for the presidency. How did that work out? Not so good. Sure, there are powerful movers and shakers—Rockefeller, Morgan, Rhodes, Rothchild, Carnegie, Zuckerberg, Gates—but in my mind, social control programs are incredibly hard to design, harder to implement, and near impossible to direct, right up there with herding cats. I guess this is why I’m an “accidentalist.” You cannot simply invent a bicycle. Metal, leather, rubber, and gear ratios must be invented first. Inventing a bicycle involves bringing together previously invented elements. As Marrs points out, secret groups have been around since the times of the Egyptian pyramids. Millennia later and we still don’t have world domination. What’s up with that? With each technological advance—fire, alphabet, print, gun powder, water, wind, oil, Internet—plans for world domination have to be scrapped and new ones formed or brought together. Whereas heads of state used to meet with the Rockefellers and Moragns, they now meet with Zuckerberg [6] and Gates. Writing in his 2002 book entitled Salt—A World History, Mark Kurlansky tells us that back in the 1400s, “No state had based its economy on salt to the degree Venice had or established as extensive a state salt policy except China.” Not to be glib but I doubt there are many secret meetings centered on salt anymore. Maybe the Internet—clearly another conspiracy—will get it right. Siri, are you a part of some conspiracy to take over the world?

[6] FYI – Facebook did run an experiment a few years back designed to assess whether they could affect people’s emotions by manipulating their news feed stories. The social media backlash was intense and, as a result (as far as we know), Facebook dropped plans for further emotional control experiments.

Space Fence, Surveillance Transhumanism

Space Fence: Connecting the Surveillance and Transhumanist Agendas
Published 2 years ago on November 9, 2017
By Makia Freeman
Last Updated on July 18, 2019

Space Fence
The Space Fence is not just to track and catalog space debris. It’s an overarching program that connects the geoengineering, surveillance and transhumanist and AI agendas.

The Space Fence
is a massive, planetary-wide, space surveillance system currently being constructed that aims to monitor you all the way down to your DNA. Officially, the Space Fence is, according to Wikipedia, a 2nd generation space surveillance system being built (started in 2014) by the US Air Force and Lockheed Martin to track artificial satellites and space debris. Its budget is US$1.594 billion, it’s expected to be operational in 2019 and the Space Fence facility will be located in the Marshall Islands along with an option for another radar site in Western Australia. The Space Fence is a resurrection of a program started by Reagan in the 1980s called SDI (Strategic Defense Initiative), commonly known by its nickname “Star Wars.” However, like many exotic weapons of the New World Order, it has a cover purpose and a real purpose. This article exposes the grander implications of the Space Fence – and how it connects to other technology that could be used to enslave you.

What is the Space Fence?
Although the USAF and Lockheed Martin tell us that the purpose of the Space Fence is to detect, track and catalog space debris, we must acknowledge that the MIC (Military Intelligence Complex) is at the helm of the New World Order and is routinely engaged in psychological operations against the rest of the population. The Space Fence is the answer to the prayers of a control-freak conspiratorial class. It will have the capacity to surveil everything on Earth. Like Skynet in the fictional Terminator films, it could become surveillance beyond comprehension. How? The Space Fence is designed to operate in LEO (Low Earth Orbit). It is designed to be one big interconnected machine, run by AI and joined to current (weaponized) technology by interacting with cell phone towers, Gwen Towers, Nexrad Towers, metal particulates and more to create a giant wireless network that manipulates us through the ionization of our atmosphere.

According to Elena Freeland, author of Chemtrails, HAARP, and the Full Spectrum Dominance of Planet Earth who is soon to release a book on the topic, the Space Fence will eventually develop into a conductive Saturnian ring around the Earth’s equator. From there, it could be used to facilitate a complete lockdown on planetary communications (including our DNA communications, since we are electrical creatures), in line with the MIC’s C4 objectives (Command, Control, Communications and Computers). Freeland states that the Space Fence will have the power to totally transform the entire environment of the planet. It thus is a tool of the AI/Transhumanist agenda to merge man into machine.

HAARP
Everyone loves the acronym of HAARP – but it was just one installation/project. These days it’s more accurate to call these weapons “ionospheric heaters”. According to HAARP insider Billy Hayes, there are 200+ of them worldwide.

Space Fence: Ionization and Conductivity
The Space Fence seems to tie many aspects of the worldwide conspiracy together. Two aspects to pay attention to are ionization and conductivity. To ionize is to create polarity within a substrate. Some things are naturally non-ionized, so to ionize them is take them out of their natural state. To make something conductive is to change it so that it can conduct electricity. The NWO controllers have been unleashing a torrent of light and heavy metals (aluminum, barium, strontium and more) into our environment – and thus into our bodies – for decades via industrial output, chemical-laden products, vaccines and chemtrails.

Ionization and conductivity crop up again and again when investigating the Space Fence. The reason the NWO conspirators are so obsessed with these concepts is because they have weaponized them. Ionization is linked to weather control. Ionospheric heaters (the most famous of which is HAARP) are now deployed around the world to heat and ionize layers of the atmosphere. Once ionized, it can be directed in line with geopolitical goals of the controllers, which can equate to earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods and droughts. In 2014, we were told that HAARP was being shut down, however since HAARP-like technology is the ultimate weapon of the globalists, does anyone in their right mind really think they are just going to give it away due to lack of funding or because they are supposedly finished with it? Former HAARP insider Billy Hayes (who worked on constructing the original installation in Gakona, Alaska) claims there are over 200 HAARP-like facilities around the world which are fully operational.

Conductivity is linked to both mind control and holographic manipulation (a la Project Bluebeam). It is theorized that, with nano metal particulates everywhere including inside of people’s bodies, the masses are easier to mind control, since the metals act as receivers of wireless transmissions. There is evidence that the more metal particulates in the air, the easier it is to project holograms onto it (e.g. see the 36:30 minute mark of this Elena Freeland presentation). As this Leak Project video revealed, HP (Hewlett Packard) is literally releasing billions if not trillions of nano sensors (smart dust) into the environment. Is one of the purposes to prepare for a Project Bluebeam scenario?

Our Ionized Atmosphere: Plasma, the 4th State of Matter
The ionization of our skies means that the air is transformed into plasma, the 4th state of matter. Plasma is defined as “an ionized gas consisting of positive ions and free electrons in proportions resulting in more or less no overall electric charge, typically at low pressures (as in the upper atmosphere and in fluorescent lamps) or at very high temperatures (as in stars and nuclear fusion reactors).” In simple terms, it is ionized air. Plasma keeps our atmosphere thick. It is a medium where electrons can be moved around. Altered plasma means dramatic earth changes via the troposphere and magnetosphere. According to Freeland, the Space Fence will also ionize the outer part of our planet.

Was the SDI only put on hold until they worked how to ionize the atmosphere (see Bernard Eastland’s patents for HAARP), then re-activated?

In this context, you can look at Space Fence as the controlling hub which is designed to capitalize upon and control the tremendous transforming and terraforming of our planet which is happening right before our eyes. How can inundating our world with billions of metal particulates, nano chips and smart dust possibly be a good idea?

chemtrails delivery system
Chemtrails: one of several delivery systems. Fancy some black heavy metals for dinner?

Space Fence Delivery Systems: Chemtrails, GMOs, Vaccines
The Space Fence is not only connected to HAARP; it’s also connected to geoengineering / chemtrails, GMOs and vaccines. How? Because all of these things are delivery systems by which metal nanoparticles are injected into our atmosphere, water, food, air and, in the end, our bodies. Look at chemtrails – now coming out of ships as well as planes – infusing the air with all sorts of toxic metals like aluminum, barium and strontium, as well as synthetic biological lifeforms. Look at GMOs – all sprayed with toxic metallic and synthetic pesticides which invades our bodies. Look at vaccines – the injection of aluminum, mercury and more straight into our bloodstreams. The net effect of all of this is to create one huge wireless metallicized network to surround, engulf and permeate us.

Final Thoughts: Ultimate Aim of the Space Fence
In conclusion, it’s vital to look just beyond the Space Fence project and see the bigger picture. The Space Fence involves absolute control over space, chemtrails, nanotechnology, terraforming, genetic alteration, transhumanism and AI. The endgame is to control our nervous systems and our very DNA. The question for an awakened humanity is now: what can we do to thwart this agenda?
