- your life is very much dependent on how you were born, how much you money you have, etc... In spite of being a capitalist, democracy it still bears aspects of being stuck with a caste/feudal/colonial system. Electrical power stability issues still. Ovens generally lacking. Pollution and traffic problems no matter where you live in India. They have the same number of hours in each school day but everything is shifted forward an hour due to heat (8AM-2PM)? Considered a possible superpower in future.... 0% live in rural areas
What Americans Get Wrong About India
- another one with a colonial background. Continual battles the Mughal Empire, Persians, Europeans, British, etc... Ganges river crucial to country... Dabbled with multiple religions including, Veda religion was replaced with Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism (and Islam if you consider some of Muhammad's conquests).
In 2015, the Indian economy was the world's seventh largest by nominal GDP and third largest by purchasing power parity. Following market-based economic reforms in 1991, India became one of the fastest-growing major economies and is considered a newly industrialised country. However, it continues to face the challenges of poverty, corruption, malnutrition, and inadequate public healthcare. A nuclear weapons state and regional power, it has the third largest standing army in the world and ranks sixth in military expenditure among nations. India is a federal constitutional republic governed under a parliamentary system and consists of 29 states and 7 union territories. It is a pluralistic, multilingual and multi-ethnic society and is also home to a diversity of wildlife in a variety of protected habitats.
- three core sectors from which GDP is derived; services, industry, and agriculture. Break down comes down via software, petroleum products, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, textiles, steel, transportation equipment, machinery, leather, cement, mining, construction. World's 2nd largest population but and largish economy. Has issues with poverty at around ~12%
- Dharavi. Life in slums/shacks are desperate. Tourists interest in slums as destination? 2/3 of people working for less than $2 USD a day? No social mobility for people living in slums. Families basically live in a single room. India wants to become like China and considered to be amongst best of the West. Highly classful society. People living in skyscrapers may never see slums? Indian people proud, want the world to see the best of India not just the worse
Life In The Slums
- India world's 4th largest economy, overtake US in mid-2030s. 42M live in slums. In cities along 87M live below poverty line. DFID does work in India and has helped 7M people in slums thus far...

Hard life in India
- street market shopping. Their markets reminds me of some other Asian markets. You can get fresh coconuts in the street and have them chopped for you
Bangalore Marathahalli India Indian Shopping Street Life In India
- almost like going back in time several hundred or thousand years. Street bazaars. People still living in straw huts
RURAL LIFE IN INDIA
- rickshaws, animals, cars, etc... all over the roads. Roads often unpaved. Feels desperately poor. Strange thing is that people seem to dress according to Western fashions? Once again like going back in time several hundred years. Open air street markets. People make money any which way they can
Daily life in India - driving in traffic in Delhi ( India )

- this is what I mean by money making a difference in India. Life in Pune seems drastically different. Look at all of the pictures. It's not so different to others parts of Asia. Homes are constructed in whatever way they can. Makeshift materials such as tent like materials, corrugated iron, tiles found from anywhere. Walls can be made from brick, straw, wood, absolutely anything. You can see that there aren't any real building standards because the lines of some of their building are often 'wonky'

- heaps of interesting macaques and langurs (look like monkeys), Indian Wild Ass (looks like a donkey)
- very strange defence setup. Obviously, has a native capability but also deals extensively with Russia, Europe, Israel, US on their needs. Reminds me of Indonesia in a way. Sort of 'neutral'? They have issues mainly with Pakistan in their border area with regards to rebels and terrorists in particular
- plenty of English media options. Media intensive like a lot of US/Western sites though. You can clearly see Western influence on media
The media in India represents a confluence of paradoxes: tradition and modernity; anarchy and order; diversity and unity; conflict and cooperation; news and views; feudalism and democracy; the free market and monopoly.
Economic realities and relationships between press, television and those who own these engines of control and change will eventually determine the future of India's communication culture. India's complex cultural mosaic, especially linguistic and communal, strengthens its diversity. The media and press continue to play a dominant role in deconstructing the diversity discourse that sometimes flares up in explosive situations.
Capitalism, the press, and public hunger for news promote a culture of media that is fast replacing the legacy of a feudal/colonial system. While corporatization and state regulations can muffle free expression, the force of public interest and the market economy strive for greater freedom and openness. Both politics and capitalism thrive on the liberties of a democratic system that continues to evolve into a functional hybrid of chaos and order.
On Prophets/Pre-Cogs. This part is obviously a continuation of this series of posts:
- animals seem to have pre-cog abilities? Maybe animals can smell/sniff certain events (we know that certain migratory birds effectively have a compass in their brain while humans can also smell the scent of salt in the air prior to rain so this isn't entirely out of the question) or maybe they're the only option if no one else is capable of 'receiving a message'?
Are there really spiders out there that react so fast it borders precognition?
- I wonder how different animals and human really are? Clearly, they have their own saviours as well? Clearly, they haven't discovered 'democracy' yet though (peaceful transition of power). I wonder how long it is before they discover 'vote rigging'? Do they have the same vices that humans do. Apparently, in China zoo keepers have used pictures of Pandas engaged in 'exotic moves' in order to 'get them into the mood'. Are dogs the same?

- clearly my implementation of Hyperspace travel seems much more viable then anything currently on offer? The obvious core problems are finding pre-cogs/prophets who offer 1 to 1 correlation between what they see and where they end up. Otherwise, they need a perfect knowledge of how to interpret what they're seeing (some of what I'm hearing says the correlation between what they say and what they interpret is so different it makes it very difficult impossible to develop a proper 'navigation/co-ordinate system'. Either way, I think these people (and animals) maybe more useful to dealing with the FTL drive problem (and de-mystifying of God) then just attacking it via the pure physics methodology alone
- how do you defend against them? You can't since we don't know anything about the science?
- the funny thing is that anything we can't explain using science is pushed towards the 'paranormal/God'. The irony is that if you believe in science you don't necessarily believe in religion and vice-versa
- given the all of the superhero films out there (and the seemingly large amount of evidence for the existence of these people) it makes me believe that they are trying to propagandise these people into helping humanity (should they exist)?
- the irony is that those in power will realise when and if one or more of these people arrive and it's very obvious that they will try to take credit for whatever breakthroughs these people make. The huge irony is that while they can take ideas they can't complete the job because their abilities will be minimal or non-existent and they'll have a much more difficult time making sense of any existing research? What's even funnier is that those in charge would probably have a diminished opportunity for any afterlife (if it exists)/
- one of the laughable things about what security agencies have admitted is that on the one hand they say they didn't find anything useful yet on the other hand they have attempted to make heavy use of them over the years still?
- it's clear that most of the people who have abilities are generally more spiritual? It's also clear that the leadership of some countries and religions have played and continue to play a role in society. Look at Ancient Egypt where the pharoahs were said to have pre-cog abilities, Iran where the language seems to imply that it's leaders possess 'abilities' of some sort, Buddhism where ESP seems to play a role in selecting the new Dalai Lama, Japan thought that it's Emperors were divine in origin, China was much the same, England the same with their Royal Family, etc...
CIA Used Remote Viewing to Learn about Mars Pyramids & Inhabitants
Guess What Remote Viewers Saw in Ancient Egypt Pyramids
- I always thought that Muhammad was sort of 'free of miracles'. Perhaps not?
- one of the infuriating things is that many people define the word miracle in many different ways? The irony is that if you understand how things work a lot of the miracles aren't that miraculous?
- there are hysterically funny implications of humans thinking that other humans are divine of origin obviously. Imagine strangers think that you are God or are a representative of God on Earth? Imagine the questions and how do you answer them without a direct line to those 'up above' or if you aren't the 'real deal'? What's the meaning of life? Why doesn't God save everyone? Why are some pre-cogs/prophets while others aren't? How do they explain the miracles?
- I define 70-80% and above to be a success rate worthy of further research? The irony is that a lot of the research is having success rates that are only marginally better then chance (for instance, even on a coin toss experiment even 53% is considered worthy of further research. Seems crazy optimistic? That said it seems obvious that ~90% accuracy seems to be possible and 100% even if two remote viewers are used and the claims are to be believed from those formerly of the Stargate program?)?

- if the US experiments are correct then we may be able to exptrapolate results. Maximum of 10K out of ~300M population? That is roughly 0.003333333%. Spread over the entire human population of about 7B that results in about ~23M who could be pre-cogs/prophets (at the upper end)? At the lower end it would be about 10 times less at about ~2.3M. Clearly, most haven't been able to fully take control of their abilities (should they exist) yet otherwise they would be of 'interest' to everyone else?

- you can warp forward back/forward in time and through space arbitrarily but you won't know what you're looking at. With regards to the scientists it's easier to use that 'other space' for thinking. If they can control forward warps then it's easier to see decades or centuries ahead of time. The science is unlikely to make any sense to them otherwise. One of the interesting side effects of navigation via EM and natural phenomena is
- it feels a lot of the pre-cogs out there don't have a genuine 1 to 1 correlation for their visions? Calibration for navigation via Hyperspace via noetics/lucid dreaming/EM is not possible with these people (or just more difficult). Clearly, the Hyperspace Drive that I've been looking at for complete control over weather, weapons, pretty much all natural phenomena, etc... (should it be possible/viable). The obvious way to use it to create thrust (at sub-FTL level) is to basically create tunnel from space based material of known thrust/power. Then you simply re-direct/control it as you see fit. Negates the need for fuel for propulsion obviously...
- the 'Lights of Pentecost'/animal telepathy thing is likely to be one way? Two way telepathic communication is only possible if the other side also has 'abilities'? Telepathic and direct communication with alien races seems to be mentioned over and over again? Else, it's a case of trying to get inside the body of something/somebody else and trying to sense things out

- lose your point of origin and you can use background radiation to navigate back. That's your 'time reference' point within interstellar travel. Star maps only make sense to a certain point because the Universe isn't the way you think. It's imperfect... It's 'ordered chaos'
- curious why they called it the 'Stargate' program? Wonder whether it was for this particular purpose (hyperspace travel)? Assuming that they don't have genuine FTL/gate ability yet else life would be better? They wouldn't spend so much on TECHINT/COMINT/SIGINT/HUMINT if their abilities were fully functional as well?
- if the hyperdrive capability/gate works then how does re-animation of those work as they come across? Surely, they just need a vessel/body and assuming they can transfer themselves into bodies (which we can now 3D print)? Assuming they're like the other pre-cogs/prophets and can move from place to place at will (relative control of time and space)? It's just like the 'Light of Pentocost', telepathy, remote viewing phenomenon... This also explains Jesus' resurrection (if it actually occurred) as well as others. As long as his physical body didn't suffer too much physical trauma then he simply could have separated his body and soul from one another and transferred his 'self' back into his body once repairs were completed (easiest way is to call for help from 'others'. The blunt trauma from cruxifiction would have been too much for him and he have passed out if he remained inside of his physical body? It's easier to understand this if you or you know of someone who has ever attempted to 'divide' their body/soul or had an 'out of body experience') or else another body/vessel. It makes more sense that there is something besides DNA which separates us. After all, think about identical twins who may share identical DNA but are completely/radically different with regards to their characteristics
Uri Geller on the Declassified CIA Stargate Project Documents - The Big Seance Podcast - My...
- the substrate, medium is obviously the problem for any potential 'hyperdrive'. If the pre-cogs/prophets are being categorised as schizophrenics then we shold be looking at them? Their brains/neurochemistry forms the baseline for further investigation. Ironically, the works of those who were interested in 'eugenics' (such as the Nazis) were interested in this as well but they were more interested in proving the 'supremacy' of a single race? Ironically, many races have gone through this period?
Goebbels, The Master of Lies (RT Documentary)
Joseph Goebbels Final Speech
- brain structure has to be different (otherwise all of humanity would have them? Pyschotic episodes are fairly high in regularity across the population)? Particular brain wave pattern and frequency is required? Buddhists looked at Gamma brain wave pattern but lucid dreamers are occurring somewhere between full sleep and fully awake so induction of brain wave patterns? Brain state (sleeping, awake, etc...) is obviously critical else they would have visions all the time? Science back when Stargate program was being run was pretty primitive? Rest relies on subject in question? Clear that parts of their schizophrenics are different. Biggest problem is the research seems to be very narrow? Brain mass reduction in temporal and frontal lobe actually makes sense if E=mc^2 theory of of mine is true? Namely, interaction with external signal causes reduction in brain mass
brain wave patterns
The temporal lobe is involved in processing sensory input into derived meanings for the appropriate retention of visual memory, language comprehension, and emotion association.
The frontal lobe contains most of the dopamine-sensitive neurons in the cerebral cortex. The dopamine system is associated with reward, attention, short-term memory tasks, planning, and motivation. Dopamine tends to limit and select sensory information arriving from the thalamus to the forebrain. A report from the National Institute of Mental Health says a gene variant that reduces dopamine activity in the prefrontal cortex is related to poorer performance and inefficient functioning of that brain region during working memory tasks, and to a slightly increased risk for schizophrenia.
schizophrenia brain structure difference
The team found individuals with schizophrenia have smaller volume in the hippocampus, amygdala, thalamus, nucleus accumbens and intracranial space than controls, and larger pallidum and ventricle volumes. The study validates collaborative data analyses can be used across brain phenotypes and disorders, and encourages analysis and data-sharing efforts to further understanding of severe mental illness.
The ENIGMA collaborations include working groups for other disorders such as bipolar disorder, attention deficit, major depression, autism and addictions, who are all doing these same analyses.
Significant Loss of Brain Gray Matter: Individuals with schizophrenia, including those who have never been treated, have a reduced volume of gray matter in the brain, especially in the temporal and frontal lobes. Recently neuroscientists have detected gray matter loss of up to 25% (in some areas). The damage started in the parietal, or outer, regions of the brain but spread to the rest of the brain over a five year period. Patients with the worst brain tissue loss also had the worst symptoms, which included hallucinations, delusions, bizarre and psychotic thoughts, hearing voices, and depression.
Please note that while there is significant loss of brain gray matter, this is not a reason to lose all hope. In recent (September, 2004) group of presentations and discussion we had with Dr. Daniel Weinberger and other leading National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) schizophrenia researchers, we learned that there are reasons to believe that this gray matter loss may be reversable. Moreover, the NIMH is currently researching a drug that seems to have potential for reversing the cognitive decline that is caused by schizophrenia, and there are many drug companies also now researching in this area. It is anticipated that we will see some significant announcements related to these develpments in the next few years.
Structural and Functional Brain Abnormalities in Schizophrenia
Schizophrenia is associated with changes in the structure and functioning of a number of key brain systems, including prefrontal and medial temporal lobe regions involved in working memory and declarative memory, respectively. Imaging techniques provide an unparalleled window into these changes, allowing repeated assessments across pre- and post-onset stages of the disorder and in relation to critical periods of brain development. Here we review recent directions in structural and functional neuroimaging research on schizophrenia. The view emerging from this work is that schizophrenia is fundamentally a disorder of disrupted neural connectivity, the sources of which appear to be genetic and environmental risk factors influencing brain development both prenatally and during adolescence.
“Lucid dreaming is a very good tool to observe what happens in the brain and what is causally necessary for secondary consciousness,” says Voss. She has found that the brainwaves produced by people who subsequently report experiencing lucid dreams fall somewhere between those of REM-sleep and wakefulness. The frontal and temporal lobes of the brain, responsible for most of what we think of as higher thinking, show lower frequency gamma waves, 25-40Hz, thought to be associated with conscious attention.
- identifying those who are more 'useful' suddenly becomes much easier. Core to experiments are pre-cog/prophet (raw ability), purity (less inclined to lie. Will allow faster progress), intellect and curiosity (easier to work with as they'll be able to identify more exactly what they are seeing and be able to make use of what it is that they are seeing), age (they tend to lose power/abilities as they grow older as has been seen with other pre-cogs/prophets?), health (pointless working with them if they aren't 'stable'). Despite what is said those who have abilities/borderline schizoprehnia tends to be asset to some people provided that they are stable because it if the balance is correct between intelligence and the 'symptoms' then that other space offers more room to help their understanding of things around them
- awakening/schizophrenia important? It generally scrambles things but it also allows for connections that they wouldn't normally otherwise make? It's like short circuiting your brain? Signals end up all over the place. Notice accounts all speak of heightened reality as I alluded to earlier which makes it easier to discern between real pre-cog abilities and 'noise'. Hyper-reality is critical for them to distinguish fact from fiction and dreams/nightmares? Notice that brain seems to be sensitive based on age which helps pre-cogs/prophets to distinguish true pre-cog visions from 'noise'? It also explains why things get more difficult to distinguish as they age. Higher incidence during moments of stress and anxiety so assuming neurochemistry and hormonal levels of dopamine and adrenaline important? Animal experiments are useless because we can't understand them?
Additional research done during the past decade has revealed that schizophrenia is caused by a combination of genetic or biological predisposition as well as other factors such as prepregnancy factors, pregnancy stress, other prenatal factors, social stress, family stress or environmental stressors during a person's life. Research has now shown that children's and teen's brains are very sensitive to stress (up to 5 to 10 times more sensitive than adult brains) and can be damaged by frequent or ongoing stress
- the Stargate program (and others) seemed to target those who 'claimed' abilities. It doesn't tell you why they have abilities though?
- if there is a God, I wouldn't be surprised if there were roughly perfect distribution of particular groups/types of people? People who are more suitable to certain types of occupations in life are in perfect harmony if the system that is implemented is correct much like the global ecosystem before humanity started 'changing things'?
- assume that if those from above come down lose abilities/memories unless they figure out how to take control of their 'other self/alternate form'?
- one of the things the pre-cogs/prophets seem to understand is the nature of how things unravel/make sense for them. This is why some of the Middle Eastern wars (whatever the reason for them looks odd to everyone/anyone) make sense but no sense? If you look through some of the works of Muhammad and Jesus it's clear that they both have the hallmarks of what would be genuine 'prophets/Messengers of God'. The obvious problem is if they've been mis-identified, mis-interpreted, they were only supposed to play smaller roles in the overall scheme of things, etc... That said, I find it hard to believe that they wouldn't do their best to authenticate/verify them?
- one of the troubling things for all of these pre-cogs/prophets are what are they? You look through history and the interesting thing is that there are constant difficulties in authenticating pre-cogs/prophets properly? There are even instances of valid pre-cogs/prophets being killed with the evidence of their validity only turning up after their death? What I don't get about them is this? If others have a genuine chance at things 'thereafter' with pre-cogs/prophets who simply need more time to finish things off what's the point? Why take your chances in the life of now if you have to deal with a God that can create infinitely more problems for you thereafter (should he exist)
- can't be as simple as neurochemistry and structure? It's almost like coded messages intended for specific people (think about communication and AESA RADAR on stealth aircraft: http://www.radartutorial.eu/02.basics/LPI%20radar.en.html, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Low-probability-of-intercept_radar). Else, they could just 3D print brains, dump the correct neurochemistry in and they'd notice brain mass decreases in the temporal and frontal lobes if it's like my brain as a neutrino detector theory is true? Not that difficult to crate a detector along those lines. Containment of the experiment is the key problem and dealing with biological decay? If broadcast message then all brain matter that is similar should simply break down, if not only certain people receive the messages? What if you clone the brains? Possibly require modulation at Gamma or Theta brainwave patterns as mentioned above?
- history of this research goes into religion as well as military for thousands of years. Unless you have these abilities yourself or know of someone who does it won't make sense. Some of them are particularly good at particular styles of remote viewing. For instance, shapes, colours, etc... Feels like there is common human and alien/ET contact? Many of the people associated with these 'programs' seem to definitely have 'abilities' but probably not to the extent that they could change the world? All of them seem to acknowledge alien contact...

Some of them went overboard which made keeping the program around more difficult? Aliens/ET are so far ahead of humanity that we look like neanderthals to them? It's pointless for us to communicate with one another because we're so primitive? Angels exist and stop people from doing bad things to one another? Makes sense if their are pre-cogs/prophets out there and angels exist and are actively blocking them from seeing future numbers? Exactly what I and others have thought, body and soul are different.

- it's clear that religious leaders still play a significant role in the way that society is setup. Despite initial impressions 'liberalism' and 'free market capitalism' is almost like a final semi-desperate solution that looks for answers because they can't establish what the meaning and purpose of individuals in society should be nor have they been able to distinguish true pre-cogs/prophets from false pre-cogs/prophets who are supposedly there to 'guide the way' (the transition from religious feudalism to free market capitalism and the links in how they work aren't obvious but if you examine things in a systemic fashion then you'll realise that for the same input we're getting roughly the same output in either system. Many things are roughly the same if you dig deeper. For instance, wealth distribution, social mobility, etc... http://dtbnguyen.blogspot.com/2016/11/saving-capitalist-democracy-random.html, http://dtbnguyen.blogspot.com/2017/01/saving-capitalist-democracy-2-random.html). Fundamental to it's core is the belief that people should know what they are good at and work hard for and society that society should reciprocate
- since most people are imperfect though and the system is imperfect then we have basically ended up where we have ended up with social systems that look different but fundamentally act alike (they simply don't scale upwards). The way some of them think is obvious. If there is a God, they would feel that just like nature everything would be arranged in perfect ratios. Moreover, religious leads see 'abilities/enhancements' as a blessing of some sort and so think that all other things being equal these group of people should rise to the top of society? Sadly, given the state of affairs things don't always work out the way they're supposed to...
- there's a fatal flaw that every single one of the 'enhanced' knows that comes associated with their abilities (if they can control them). They can warp to arbitrary points in time and space which means that there's no 'where to hide' for anyone. This is also the reason why the Hyperspace technology technology that I outlined in one of previous posts is so problematic. If and when the 'final individuals/groups' (required to achieve the complete transcendence of humanity) arrive there won't really be a choice. You can either choose to side with God/Heaven or Satan/Hell (either the person who was in charge of the 'Revelations' was either a philisophical genius or he was 'enhanced' himself). There's in between here. If you choose the former you gain access to all of time and interstellar travel, those in Heaven (should it exist), effectively infinite resources, everything that is available that has been outlined in the Holy Scriptures. Stick with the latter and humanity is stuck where it is and possibly worse in future?
Beyond Classified - Stargate Program - Multiple Mantis Underground Bases - Lynn Buchanan
- it's been said that a 'House divided cannot stand'. My guess is that if the way the pre-cogs/prophets function then things should 'unravel' when the 'final individuals/groups assemble'. The relationship between God, Arch-Angels, Angels, Prophets, and so on feels symbiotic? If real, they know each one serves one another in a way as part of something much greater and that it isn't just the sum of individuals parts that separates them. The role that humanity plays as part of this is entirely up to them...
- it makes sense that the only way this can be completed and works in favour of humanity is if those who have 'abilities' effectively give up their vows to their nations and work only for God? Thus far, it feels as though
- it's clear through the experiments that they've conducted into these areas. Stimulation via chemical, electrical, EM, meditation, etc..) that they've made progress. Not enough to make a genuine big different though?
bill gates lucid dreamer
- it's clear that religious/political heads have also come to a tacit understanding with regards to PSYOPS, information warfare, propaganda fidei, etc... They're hope is that someone the good, bad, and otherwise people of the world somehow see through all of the messaging to what they are themselves, what others are, etc...
- at times, it feels as though Marx was entirely devoid of religion/spirituality but at others times it feels like he was pretty knowledgeable in this area? Look at the style of his language and writing... He just couldn't make the 'final leap of faith' though?
- the Buddhist/Hindu belief in continual renewal only makes sense if you're 'enhanced' and have ever detected any animal with a 'life signature' that resembles that of a human in a context that they would find otherwise difficult to explain. A good example this was sensing the presence of such animals behind objects/doors that they couldn't use their five senses for (and it's happened on multiple occasions)
- read through Jewish, Islamic, and Christian history and it seems fundamentally obvious (I'm assuming that that Hinduism and Buddhism were just precusors to these Abrahamic religions especially in light of some recent material that I've come across) what many people in these religions were thinking when they were going through difficult times. Somehow they had done something wrong and that God had abandoned them. What feels obvious is how the 'ways of God' and the 'ways of Man' can interfere with one another. As stated in the Quran and in many other religions if you keep on looking on and in the right places you should figure things out (most other religions refer to this as 'faith')?
- the time travel issue/paradox is one that plagues every single one of those who are 'enhanced'. What feels obvious to any of them is that if our time on Earth is about trying to gain/earn the right to 'ascension' then you generally only get one shot at things? Genuine time travel also set's into play a whole bunch of other issues...
The Man Who Took His Pocket Knife Back in Time
- I'm guessing these abilities are like other physical abilities? Some will find it easier then others? If these people have been in use for a long while they have 'limited but still useful' abilities...
- assuming that from all of this that humanity wasn't technically 'born on planet Earth'? It doesn't matter whether you believe in the Holy Scriptures or science. Either way, this seems to be true?
- the problem for those without 1 to 1 correlation of what they are seeing is that they are simply to hard to work with? They need to understand what the correlations and be able to explain them in a way that makes sense. It also harder to factor out if the pre-cog isn't a pre-cog but is just lucking out over and over again
- I'm assuming that some of the pre-cogs/prophets are somehow already 'shielded' (whether by others or they've learnt to protect themselves over time?). That the issue of technique is not really a problem except if you attempt to channel via an entity that doesn't necessarily have your 'best interests' at heart?
How To Hide From A Psychic Attack
- obviously, all of the above sounds crazy unless you have these abilities or have seen someone who has demonstrated it. It's interesting either way... Mixed results. Clear that they haven't figured everything out. The funniest stories are probably about those who have used it to make a little money on the side

- a lot of messaging services don't have a picture upload facility. A lot of sites out there have temporary drop box picture/file type facilities if you require to deal with this problem. It's interesting for me in another way because of the way in which some of them work. Since you can upload via various API's should you also be upload remotely from another website that you may have built yourself.

- found a bug in blogger.com/Google Services a while back. Seems to be browser specific and basically doesn't allow you to logout without deleting specific caching data. A few days ago I noticed that the URL encoding on logout seemed to change to be more inclusive of various services. At the same time, they didn't acknowledge that the bug was there and the forum thread is 'locked' now? Is Google is now part of the 'secret services'? Our failures are never known as well our successes? LOL

- one of the obvious interesting things for me is if the RCS of the PAK-FA and Eurofighter are roughly the same did the Europeans and Russians come to a tacit agreement so as not to come across as threatening to one another? Knowing USSR/Russian history and what is required to make the PAK-FA stealthier I'm fairly certain it wouldn't take that much to push it to another level? That said, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if this is just a test platform for more interesting things down the line

- In 2009, Liberal Democrat MP Tom Brake accused the police of using undercover agents to incite the crowds at the G20 protests in London.
In the US, the FBI ran a secret program called COINTELPRO from 1956 to 1971 which infiltrated groups such as the Black Panther Party and peace activists such as Martin Luther King Jr.
The FBI conducted systematic plots and surveillance to discredit and harass King, including false allegations he was influenced by communists and a threatening letter sent by agents in 1964 calling him “an evil, abnormal beast,” just one year after he delivered his famous “I Have A Dream” speech.
- If Trump and his army of the “forgotten and neglected”, as the man himself puts it, are supremely apolitical – so much so that they can scarcely articulate any specific objectives for his administration other than to “make America great (or safe, or a winner) again” – then the Corbyn army is Politics Unbound. So why do we get the eerie feeling that there is something uncannily – and alarmingly – similar if not in the manifestations themselves at least in the restiveness which has caused them? The facile explanation has been that there is a general, widespread disillusion with the governing class – what Mr Lansmann calls “the political elites” – in advanced democracies. Leftists like Jeremy Corbyn exult in what they see as the final stage of the alienation that Marx predicted. Nationalist demagogues like Trump present it as a betrayal of the trusting folks at home and of the people who thought their country belonged to them.
But the important thing they have in common is the use of demonic enemies: evil employers in the case of Corbyn; evil foreigners in the case of Trump. We have been here before. It was these wicked fables of class and racial enmity that fuelled the terrible ideological crimes of the last century. The democratic process – which was a product of the Age of Reason – is being systematically discredited. The message can be shouted (Trump) or whispered (Corbyn) but it is equally insidious: elected governments do not – cannot – deliver for you. This may be more, God help us, than a fleeting, comic historical moment. It may be the beginning of something truly terrible.
- Effectively, the current Russian Air Force leveraged late Soviet-era investments in advanced technology to field capabilities that had previously been reserved for Western air forces—such precision guided munitions and long-range strike. Moreover, the Syrian operation showed that the Russian forces have reached a level of proficiency where they can generate sustain sorties from an expeditionary base far from home. Indeed, the Russian Air Force will likely continue to incorporate lessons learned from Syria and continue to improve as time goes on. Thus, while not as large as its Soviet predecessor, the current Russian Air Force is in some ways more capable—its crews are better trained and it has much improved technology at its disposal. The question is really how quickly can Moscow afford to modernize given the state of the Russian economy.
- The actual nukes (about 50 of them) stored at the Incirlik Air Base in Turkey are B61 gravity bombs. They are “dumb” bombs first developed back in the days when a tactical nuclear bomber raid of the Soviet Union’s Eastern European flank was a plan kicking around the offices of RAND’s real-life Strangeloves. In other words, they serve no conceivable use in any current day situation.
So of course the US just spent $8 billion upgrading them to B61-12s by adding moving fins so they can be more effectively steered toward their targets after they’re dropped. Controls have also been added so that the bomb’s yield can be adjusted before they’re deployed, all the way down from their full yield of 170 kilotons (11 Hiroshimas) to 0.3 kilotons (a measly 2% of a Hiroshima). The idea is to make these nukes “small” enough so that their use is conceivable and acceptable to the public…the entire opposite of the MAD doctrine that was used to promote their development and stockpiling in the first place.
- An interesting fact about the interviewees that were cited here, Tkacik and Liley, is that they’re both retired. Why, then, do they still keep up the lying front (especially since they’re now feeding myths that could produce a nuclear war)? They’re no longer on the U.S. government payroll. But they do receive income as ‘experts’, based upon their past official positions. How much credibility would they now have if they said: “Oh, it was just lying — that’s what I did for a living”? They’re never really free. They’re always like horses that are harnessed to a carriage of frauds. They’ve simply got to keep pulling this carriage, until they die.
- What is it with Hillary Clinton? What is it about this brilliant and accomplished woman—described by Barack Obama as possibly “more qualified” to be president than anyone in history—that makes so many people certain she is an incurable liar? More than anything else about Clinton—her occasional tin ear for politics, her seeming inability to connect with large crowds, her ultracautiousness—it is the trust issue that could yet cost her a general election she should otherwise win, given her opponent’s vulnerabilities.
Plainly put, Clinton herself has kept the issue alive over 25 years of public life, with long-winded, defensive, obfuscating answers to questions that—in politics, if not in law—cry out for a crisp yes-or-no reply.
- But when the Navy completed its frigate study in November 2014, its recommendation — which Hagel quickly approved — was to simply add a few pieces of additional equipment to the existing LCS variants and remove their modularity capability.
The planned enhancements included a more powerful air-search radar, an over-the-horizon anti-ship missile, a small amount of additional armor, improved electronic jamming, a towed-array sonar and an anti-submarine torpedo launcher — all things the baseline LCSs lacked. But the new frigate version of the littoral warship would not get a long-range surface-to-air missile system nor significant hardening against enemy attack.
In short, the frigate was little more than a “minor-modified LCS,” according to the Government Accountability Office, the U.S. government’s main watchdog agency which, in June 2016, released a scathing report on the Navy and Defense Department’s decision-making processes regarding the frigate.
In the GAO’s assessment, the Navy’s main concern was selecting a frigate quickly and building it at the same yards building the baseline LCSs, so as to protect the shipbuilders Lockheed Martin and Austal — and, in theory, minimize the additional cost. The Navy expects the frigate to cost around $190 million more per copy than the roughly $500-million baseline LCS.
- Moreover, American foreign policy is, from the progressive point of view, based on theft, because America only invades countries like Iraq which have oil, while it never invades resource-poor countries like Haiti or Rwanda.
- China has banned a number of online news organizations from reporting original news in an effort to suppress non-government approved information.
The Cyberspace Administration of China banned the companies, including Sohu.com, Sina Corp and Net Ease Inc on Friday, telling them to cease their “current affairs news,” according to reports from Chinese media, as reported by Bloomberg.
The companies are accused of having “seriously violated” internet regulations through their original reporting, which caused “huge negative effects,” state media reported. Violators of these regulations will face penalties.
The ban increases China’s influence over what information its people can access, allowing them to shape and suppress news.
President Xi Jinping has told Chinese media it must work in the interests of the Communist Party. “They must love the party, protect the party, and closely align themselves with the party leadership in thought, politics and action,” he said in February.
- Kadyrov has repeatedly accused the United States and other Western nations of deliberate policies aimed at destroying Muslim countries and the Muslim faith. In February last year he said IS had been “spawned” by the West to incite hatred towards Muslims all over the world. Kadyrov also suggested the West was backing the terrorist group in order to distract public attention from numerous problems in the Middle East, in the hope of destroying Islamic nations from within. In November he accused the Turkish authorities of aiding Western nations’ plot to weaken and destroy Islam by assisting Islamic State and its allies in Syria.
Kadyrov also previously claimed that he possessed information that the Islamic State leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, had been personally recruited to work for the US by General David Petraeus, the former director of the CIA and former commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. At that time, Kadyrov claimed IS “was acting on orders from the West and Europe.”
- It was a remarkable moment: Even at the height of the Cold War, it was hard to find a presidential campaign willing to charge that its rival was essentially secretly doing the bidding of a key American adversary. But the accusation is emerging as a theme of Mrs. Clinton’s campaign, as part of an attempt to portray Mr. Trump not only as an isolationist, but also as one who would go soft on confronting Russia as it threatens nations that have shown too much independence from Moscow or, in the case of Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, joined NATO.
- The Russians didn’t hack into Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server, as others have reported, according to a very reliable source of mine who has connections with US intelligence agencies.
They didn’t have to.
Clinton was so careless when using her BlackBerry that the Russians stole her password. All Russian President Vladimir Putin’s gang had to do was log into Clinton’s account and read whatever they wanted.
They had to be laughing their butts off. So you can add the Russians to the list of people who know bad and personal things about Clinton that the Democrats will wish remain hidden.
FBI Director James Comey said a few weeks ago that Clinton had been “extremely careless” with her e-mails, but he added that he didn’t think the server she’d been using had been hacked by “hostile actors.”
- The protesters said Mr Xian had violated the Shaanxi-Gansu-Ningxia treaty, a decades-old agreement between Hui people which prohibits anyone from opening a beef noodle restaurant within 400m of an existing one.
The document says this is to promote a "harmonious and stable" noodle market, and that those who do not abide by it will have to face the consequences and accept any financial losses.
Ma Jinglong, a protest organiser and Hui Muslim who owns two nearby beef restaurants, told news outlet The Sixth Tone that the treaty "doesn't have any legal standing" but that most Muslim restaurateurs observe it anyway.
"I have a big family to support. If one restaurant ignores the treaty, the rules will be broken, and more restaurants will follow suit," he said.
- Following the liquidation of the USSR and the Eastern camp, a unipolar model appeared in the world under which the American dragon reached the peak of its power. Networks of American agents of influence, most often in the form of liberal ideology, but also in more hidden forms mimicking local political and ideological trends, permeated society in practically all countries. The dragon infiltrated political elites, big business, education, the media, and sometimes security circles in European and Asian states.
In Russia, pro-American forces almost openly dominated in the 1990’s, and only in the 2000’s did Putin begin to push aside their authority little by little. These networks spread into Islamic countries where their military wing became radical Islam, a true servant of the American dragon.
But the dragon received a blow, or a series of blows, most likely fatal, at the height of its power. All of the countries which didn’t bow before American hegemony in the 1990’s and did not completely accept the unipolar model of the world as irreversible gradually came to form an informal club and began the process of resisting the dragon. China very carefully played with this line in trying to ride the tiger and carry out modernization and liberalization while preserving and even strengthening national sovereignty.
At the beginning of the 2000’s, Russia began to follow this path. Iran occupied a similar position. Contemplative India tried to escape direct American diktat. Opposition began to form among the dragon’s followers in the EU, Turkey, and even among pro-American Salafi extremists. The most important is that the Americans, having obtained the historic chance to rule the entire world, simply couldn’t handle this task. Perhaps they did not have enough historical, imperial experience, intelligence, or resources. Hegemony overheated. The dragon was then wounded.
Today, we are dealing with a globally wounded monster. The United States is still strong and its networks are still effective. Liberals, Islamic extremists, Atlanticists, and hidden agents of influence are still strong in different societies. But the peak of American dominance is behind us.
The fact that the dragon is wounded became clear already in the early 2000’s when America ceased to impose even a semblance of order and aimed only for controlled, bloody chaos. Color revolutions, putsches, coups, and Western troops’ invasions of the Middle East and post-Soviet space are evidence of this.
The essence of this is that the dragon is wounded. It is still strong and has the appearance of a power that knows its purpose. But in reality, he has gone mad from the pain of his collapsing rule. Hence why the US begins to behave so inappropriately in many cases.
It strikes at its own servants, ruins what could be preserved, and painfully and disproportionally reacts to small attacks.
This is extremely dangerous. The wounded dragon is equipped with nuclear weapons and all of its great power can still send all of humanity into the abyss with one blow.
- "Election days come and go. But the struggle of the people to create a government which represents all of us and not just the 1 per cent – a government based on the principles of economic, social, racial and environmental justice – that struggle continues."
Citing a 40-year decline of the middle class; the 47 million Americans living in poverty and a "grotesque level of income and wealth inequality" that was the worst since 1928, he castigated any who thought they might skip voting – as many of his supporters have indicated they might.
"If you don't believe this election is important, if you think you can sit it out, take a moment to think about the Supreme Court justices that Donald Trump would nominate and what that would mean to civil liberties, equal rights and the future of our country."
Before telling the convention that Clinton "will make an outstanding president", Sanders seemed genuine in celebrating their relationship as a professional success.
"It is no secret that Hillary Clinton and I disagree on a number of issues," he said. "That's what this campaign has been about. That's what democracy is about."
- In one speech, he argued that it was the British who had been brainwashed by their ruling class. "If the people in this country, or in America, knew that there is a country in the world, where there is a free education, free housing, free medical care, then they'd have second thoughts," he said, to laughter from his audience.
"That is the reason why the mass media creates all those shocking, terrifying stories about my country."
The BBC's diplomatic correspondent James Robbins says it now looks as if Mr Thae's heart may not have been in the task of defending North Korea - one of the poorest and most authoritarian countries in the world.
- A senior diplomat from the North Korean embassy in London has defected, according to South Korean media, in the first case of its kind since official ties were established and the embassy opened 13 years ago.
The diplomat, who vanished earlier this month with his wife and children, was based at North Korea’s suburban embassy in Ealing, west London. He was now seeking asylum in a third country, the JoongAng Ilbo newspaper said.
One of five officials at the embassy in addition to the ambassador, the diplomat’s job was to keep track of North Korean defectors living in London. He was also tasked with rebutting UK criticism of his country’s human rights record, the reports said.
According to the JoongAng Ilbo, the missing diplomat was likely to be either Thae Yong-ho, a minister, or Ryu Kyong-jun, a third secretary.
- He says University of Queensland has spawned 75 start-ups, raised $600 million in capital for them and earned $400 million on them in the last dozen years – a much higher return on its commercialisation activities than most Australian or British universities.
But the impact on the university's reputation of successfully translating high quality research into commercial outcomes was much more profound.
Dr Moss will be on a panel with Darren Kelly, founder of drug developer Fibrotech, and Vern Boles, founder of head lice treatment company Hatchtech. The two companies came out of the University of Melbourne and were sold in the past two years for up to $500 million and $279 million.
He says he has heard others saying commercialisation is too hard because time frames are too long, regulatory barriers are too steep, there isn't enough capital and so on.
"I think there are a lot of people that put up a lot of perceived barriers, but they are just not committed, they are not focused and they don't have the right people on it, they are sub-scale and it's not strategic to their universities."
- “The reality is there are not enough trains, we need more of them – and they’re also incredibly expensive.” He said the whole experience was a good case for public ownership.
Later, Corbyn said: “Is it fair that I should upgrade my ticket whilst others who might not be able to afford such a luxury should have to sit on the floor? It’s their money I would be spending after all.”
Ellen, a mother-of-two who travelled on the same train and and also had no seat, said: “It was a surprise to see him there, but it was refreshing. It made me realise that it shouldn’t be a surprise to see a politician travelling alongside average commuters. They should be on the same level as the general public.”
It is not the first time Corbyn has experienced the reality of Britain’s transport woes. During the 2015 leadership campaign he was spotted on a night bus after a day’s campaigning:
- When America landed on the moon, the Cold War essentially ended. Russia gave up and ended its space program. We can’t yet know what the West vs Islam version of the Moon landings will be, but it is moments in culture like Neil Armstrong’s first steps which turn the tide of history and create the conditions for popular rebellion. Islam has to be made uncool.
They also need to champion the greatness of western culture and ask more strongly why there isn’t a single world-class university in the Muslim world and why there is no Muslim Shakespeare, Picasso, Mozart or Nietzsche.
This is a war of culture as much as it is a war of politics or faith, and we have to start fighting it now, in music, books, journalism, art and with every other means of creativity at our disposal, demonstrating as we do so what is possible with the free expression we so cherish in the west and which made America the greatest country in the history of human civilization.
But more than that — and this is what they really don’t want to do — our leaders need to talk about what makes Islamic societies bad. Perhaps they can start with Indonesia.
- When Boris Johnson was working for the Daily Telegraph in Brussels in the early 1990s, rival British correspondents dreaded midnight calls from their news desks in London. Sonia Purnell, Johnson’s biographer, who worked with him at the time, recalls that Boris’s stories about the curvature of bananas, the shape of cucumbers and other EU absurdities were known as “duvet blasters”. Despairing reporters were ordered out of bed to write follow-ups. “The stories were almost always wrong but they would still blast everyone’s duvets,” says Purnell. For the young Johnson, it was good journalistic fun.
The Brussels establishment regarded the British hack as an irritant set on lampooning Europe’s institutions at every opportunity. But back in London, John Major’s Tory government, beset by Eurosceptic rebellion, was more worried. The foreign secretary, Douglas Hurd, could see that Johnson was framing a new, populist form of Euroscepticism that was spreading beyond Westminster, by depicting Brussels as power-grabbing and ludicrously bureaucratic. A little noticed historical irony is that a young Tory MP called David Davis, who was a whip steering the vote for the Maastricht treaty before he became Europe minister in 1994, was working hard with the Foreign Office to contain the Eurosceptic rebellions by Tory MPs as Johnson stoked them.
More than two decades on, and two months after the UK voted to leave the EU, partly as a result of his role in the Brexit campaign, Europe is no longer a target for Johnsonian ridicule. The man who arguably did more than any to lead Britain out – and was then stunningly installed by Theresa May as foreign secretary – has been charged with the giant task of shaping a vision of life after Brexit for the British people.
- The free speech think-tank issued a report recently which found eight in 10 universities it examined had policies or had restricted free speech.
“Students should be free to express views, not be interrupted and punished,” he said.
A spokeswoman for the university said it did not seek to avoid politics in lectures.
- A lot has changed in the 100 years since the term "schizophrenia" was first coined, but perhaps not quite as much as you might think. People living with schizophrenia still experience many of the same problems today.
In 1910, Winston Churchill summed up contemporary attitudes when he wrote to the prime minister, Herbert Asquith, arguing for the mass sterilisation of people with severe mental illness.
Churchill warned that the "feeble-minded and insane classes" constituted a "danger which it is impossible to exaggerate", and that "the source from which the stream of madness is fed should be cut off and sealed up before another year has passed."
- Trump may well lose the presidential election just as Sanders failed in his bid for the Democrat nomination. But this does not mean that the forces opposed to hyper-globalisation – unrestricted immigration, TPP and TTIP, the free movement of capital and much else – will have lost the argument and are set to decline. In little more than 12 months, Trump and Sanders have transformed the nature and terms of the argument. Far from being on the wane, the arguments of the critics of hyper-globalisation are steadily gaining ground. Roughly two-thirds of Americans agree that “we should not think so much in international terms but concentrate more on our own national problems”. And, above all else, what will continue to drive opposition to the hyper-globalisers is inequality.
- Tardigrades, better known as water bears, are tiny, nearly indestructible creatures with eight pudgy legs and snouts. They’re found around the globe, swimming in pockets of wet moss or in the capillary water between grains of sand. When the water dries up, they retreat into a semi-animate state – a survival mechanism that amazes scientists.
Sam Gon III, a biologist and Native Hawaiian cultural practitioner, began hunting these smaller than 1mm curiosities in the 1980s. His search plot included the moss and lichen-covered lava plains of Haleakalā National Park. Sitting atop a 10,023ft volcano on the island of Maui, the park is subject to intense solar radiation during the day and freezing temperatures at night. Few life forms thrive on this windblown summit, which offers little in the way of food or shelter. But, as Gon discovered, it’s a perfect habitat for tardigrades. He found 31 distinct species in just 50 sq miles.
- In 2005, Vladimir Putin called the collapse of the USSR the greatest geopolitical disaster of the century. The Russian leader has repeated this thesis several times since, and in 2015 explained that he was speaking of the humanitarian consequences to the common people.Putin noted in a public speech that after the crash of the Soviet system 25 million ethnic Russians found themselves living in foreign countries which made the Russian people became the largest divided people in the world.
However, Putin acknowledged that the primary reason behind the collapse of the USSR was the great amount of internal contradictions and general failure of its economic and political systems.
- The Royal Navy’s only vessel capable of repairing British warships on the sea is being offered up for sale by the UK’s Ministry of Defense due to cost-cutting measures, despite a recent retrofitting that extended the life of the RFA Diligence to 2020.
“We can confirm that the out-of-service date for RFA Diligence has been brought forward to the end of 2016,” a naval spokesperson told The Telegraph.
The RFA Diligence was first deployed in 1982 to serve in the Falkland War with Argentina. The ship is the only “Forward Repair Ship” in the UK’s fleet and it was deployed in both Gulf conflicts.
Its sophisticated design allows the RFA Diligence to conduct multitasking at sea, as it is fitted with a wide range of workshops equipped to carry out repairs on hulls and machinery. Its unique design also allows the vessel to generate electricity, water, fuel, air, steam, and supplies for other ships and submarines.
In order to find prospective buyers, the British Ministry of Defense has recently placed an ad in which the multipurpose vessel is listed as “MOD surplus equipment for sale.”
“RFA Diligence is in good overall condition and moored at Bidston Dock, Birkenhead,” the ad reads. “Viewings will take place, Mid/late October 2016.”
Interested parties are urged to provide a summary of “Further Use proposal” outlining how the 111-meter (367-foot) vessel will be used at its new location.
In 2013, the Diligence underwent a major refit to extend the ship’s service life to 2020. The work included modifications that enabled the ship to carry out repairs on Astute-class nuclear-powered attack submarines. However, the vessel has been moored since last year due to manpower shortages, leaving the UK’s Royal Navy without a deployable operational maintenance and repair (OMAR) platform at sea.
