From Raheem Kassam, on the new ""Inflation Reduction Act."

Internal Revenue Service (IRS) commissioner Charles P. Rettig told Congress his agency wouldn’t increase audits on households earning less than $400,000 after being handed circa 87,000 more agents in the Orwellianly-monikered Inflation Reduction Act hurried through the U.S. Congress this weekend.

Which means they absolutely will be doing that, if historical promises by agency heads in front of the lawmakers they pretend to answer to are anything to go by. And they are.

In other words, they just used your taxes to increase your taxes so they could hire 87,000 IRS agents to rifle further through your taxes in case you owe more taxes.

Welcome to American kleptocracy.

IRS estimates (which we know are always excellent) reveal supposedly uncollected taxes of around $1trn each year. Or, as I like to call it, one-eighth of a “war on terror.”

Even Senator Susan Collins has pointed out this move “more than [doubles] the size of the agency and [gives] the IRS more employees than the number of Pentagon, State Department, and FBI employees as well as Border Patrol agents combined.”

Welcome to "Our Democracy" folks!

Do you think the government needs 87,000 new IRS agents to harass the rich? Nope. They need it to go through the taxes of the working class and the middle class. And remember: The IRS has bought $696,000 in ammunition in 2022. That's a lot of bullets, folks. Turns out the IRS buys ammo every year.

While gun control laws are passed against citizens, the government makes sure it is armed to the teeth.

Scott Rosenberg at Axios reports that Facebook is changing its chronological organization of posts, and is going to “shape your online life around the algorithmically-sorted preferences of millions of strangers around the globe.”

Algorithms sorting posts? This is how Transhumanists want to run the world: Create a hive mind where individuality is subsumed by AIs and algos that know better what we should be thinking and reading and watching.

That's how TikTok sorts the videos it shows users, and that's largely how Facebook will now organize its home screen.”

That’s great! Tik Tok is owned by the Chinese Communist Party. All of the data you put up on Tik Tok goes to servers in China. The CCP has already created a totalitarian, technocratic state that ruthlessly suppresses dissent and individual opinion. In other words, the CCP and now Facebook are aligning their view of the world around the Hive Mind. Everybody think, speak, and act alike! Don’t rock the boat! The goal of Transhumanism and their allies in Big Tech and Big Medical, and the nutjobs in Davos, is to create an entire planetary society modeled on the CCP’s state fascism.

The dominant player in social media is transforming itself into a kind of digital mass media, in which the reactions of hordes of anonymous users, processed by machine learning, drive the selection of your content.”

Yup. That’s the “vision” of the sociopaths who have somehow gotten to the top of our governments and world institutions like the WEF, the WHO, and the UN.

Facebook and its rivals call this a ‘discovery engine’...For roughly a decade following the 2008 financial crisis, social networks — led by Facebook, with Twitter playing an important secondary role —dominated the internet's culture and economy. Their rise came with high hopes they might unleash waves of democratic empowerment and liberate self-expression around the world. But their chief impact emerged in the transformation of the media industry and the digital advertising business.”

Yes. And the suppression of free speech as the search algos became more and more authoritarian, suppressing “unwanted” content in the name of “protecting” people from “harmful” opinions.

The TikTok-style ‘discovery engine’ model shares many of the same problems. Posts are even less rooted in a web of social relationship. The larger the crowd, the louder the threshold for speech to be heard.”

But there is good news:

Messaging will continue to grow as the central channel for private, one-to-one and small group communications. Meta owns a big chunk of that market, too, thanks to Facebook Messenger and its ownership of WhatsApp. At the other end of the media spectrum, the ‘discovery engines’ run by TikTok and Meta will duke it out with streaming services to capture billions of eyeballs around the globe and sell that attention to advertisers.

All this leaves a vacuum in the middle — the space of forums, ad-hoc group formation and small communities that first drove excitement around internet adoption in the pre-Facebook era. Facebook's sunsetting of its own social network could open a new space for innovation on this turf, where relative newcomers like Discord are already beginning to thrive.”

Let the myopic giants in Big Tech and Big Medical, aligned with their nutjob Transhumanist buddies, continue to promote a World Hive Mind. They will capture a certain percentage of the population of course. But those of us with self-awareness will reject this dystopian future and create a better one, based on guaranteed human rights that come from God, not the state.

The UN, the World Health Organization, and their allies in the private sector such as Bill Gates and Jeff Bezos, are going all-out to impose a worldwide medical surveillance state

CNBC has announced that Jeff Bezos has just bought One Medical for $3.2 billion. In cash.

Amazon is acquiring One Medical for $18 a share, an all-cash deal that values the primary health-care provider at roughly $3.9 billion, the companies said Thursday.

The deal deepens Amazon’s presence in health care, which Neil Lindsay, senior vice president of Amazon Health Services, said is “high on the list of experiences that need reinvention.”

The e-commerce giant hopes to improve how people book appointments and the experience of being seen by a physician, Lindsay said in a statement.

“We love inventing to make what should be easy easier and we want to be one of the companies that helps dramatically improve the healthcare experience over the next several years,” he said.

And if you believe that last sentence, I have a bridge in the Gobi desert to sell you.

First take a gander at the WHO's "Immunization Agenda." This document expresses the goals of Big Pharma and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation's GAVI (Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization), which is to vaccinate every man, woman, and child on planet earth. From the WHO document:

The Immunization Agenda 2030 (IA2030) sets an ambitious, overarching global vision and strategy for vaccines and immunization for the decade 2021–2030. It draws on lessons learnt, acknowledges continuing and new challenges posed by infectious diseases and capitalizes on new opportunities to meet those challenges. IA2030 positions immunization as a key contributor to people’s fundamental right to the enjoyment of the highest attainable physical and mental health and also as an investment in the future, creating a healthier, safer, more prosperous world for all. IA2030 aims to ensure that we maintain the hard-won gains and also that we achieve more – leaving no one behind, in any situation or at any stage of life. [emphasis mine]

IA2030 is intended to inspire and align the activities of community, national, regional and global stakeholders – national governments, regional bodies, global agencies, development partners, health care professionals, academic and research institutions, vaccine developers and manufacturers, the private sector and civil society. Its impact will be maximized by more effective and efficient use of resources, innovation to improve performance and measures to attain financial and programmatic sustainability. Success will depend on building and strengthening partnerships within and outside the health sector as part of a coordinated effort to improve access to high-quality, affordable primary health care, achieve universal health coverage and accelerate progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). [emphasis mine]

https://www.who.int/publications/m/item/immunization-agenda-2030-a-global-strategy-to-leave-no-one-behind

What does this mean? Health = vaccines. "Leaving no one behind" means vaccinating EVERYONE. A worldwide effort in all sectors of society -- using what the WHO calls "global stakeholders" -- that means Big Pharma, their billionaire buddies, and their captured agents in every sector of society -- to inject you with whatever vaccine they choose. At any time. By calling a "health emergency."

But that's not all. If you want to know more about the game plan of the elites for the Great Unwashed masses of humanity, read this document: The WHO's "Global genomic surveillance strategy for pathogens with pandemic and epidemic potential 2022–2032" at https://www.who.int/initiatives/genomic-surveillance-strategy (You can read this doc by downloading it from the above link).

This document outlines a plan to surveil all humans on the planet via a genomic analysis of each human body, as a part of the UN's "Sustainable Development" program.. Then, our betters can devise "vaccines" and other "useful" methods to eliminate pesky pathogens that might interfere with health -- or, maybe, to silence those who think, say, or do anything that goes against a planetary medical bureaucracy run from above by a few psychopaths.

From the document:

Global genomic surveillance strategy for pathogens with pandemic and epidemic potential, 2022–2032

The Strategy provides a high-level unifying framework to leverage existing capacities, address barriers and strengthen the use of genomic surveillance in the detection, monitoring and response to public health threats. Genomic surveillance is part of the broader surveillance and laboratory system, and its implementation should reinforce end-to-end capacities including sample collection, diagnostics, data sharing and analysis. The strategy aims to facilitate the connectivity between different disease control programs and surveillance networks. This interoperability will strengthen the cross-cutting essential public health laboratory functions underpinning genomics holistically. The strategy articulates the overarching goal, objectives and strategic actions needed. These are dependent on commitments from countries, partners and WHO for their implementation. [emphasis mine]

...

Information on public health threats needs to be rapidly available to allow for country, regional and global risk assessments that can quickly trigger public health interventions. The IHR (2005) obligates State Parties to develop national capacity for the detection, investigation and reporting through WHO of potential public health emergencies of international concern...

The strategy does not focus on one pathogen or a specific public health threat. Rather, it aims to provide a unifying vision for using genomics as a powerful addition to address public health needs for pandemic and epidemic preparedness and response broadly.... Ultimately, genomic surveillance is part of the broader surveillance and laboratory system, and its implementation should reinforce end-to-end capacities including sample collection, diagnostics, data sharing and analysis....

As the genomic surveillance use cases extend beyond pandemic and epidemic preparedness and response, the strategy aims to facilitate the connectivity with other disease control programmes and surveillance networks. This interoperability will strengthen the cross-cutting essential public health laboratory functions underpinning genomics holistically. [emphasis mine]

https://www.who.int/initiatives/genomic-surveillance-strategy

You get the idea. There's more insanity like this as you read the rest of the document.

The globalist plan for your future and the future of your children is outlined very succinctly in these publications. They're not hiding anything.

Will it work?

Nope. These are the delusional dreams of a few psychopaths who think it's their right to run the planet.

We won't let them.

One of my favorite artists is the generational talent, guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. In any band he's ever been in, his solos and compositions stand out as exceptional and inspirational.

Nowhere is this more evident than in his 2021 release, "The Chopin Project." Here, Kurt and his band interpret the music of Frederic Chopin, a composer whose music is still very much alive almost two centuries after his death.

Wikipedia says of Chopin, "He has maintained worldwide renown as one of the best composers and musicians in history, one whose 'poetic genius was based on a professional technique that was without equal in his generation.'"

The same can be said, in my view, of Rosenwinkel. To illustrate this I want to play two versions of Chopin's Prelude in E Major, Opus 28, No. 2.

The first is a standard classical version of this short piece by pianist Evgeny Kissin:

Here is Rosenwinkel's interpretation of this (in my opinion) rather plodding piece. Somehow he finds something truly joyful, bright, hopeful, and happy in the original.

Some listeners might think that reinterpreting a classical music work in this fashion is heretical. But I think it's inspirational!

“Faith gives us the fixed compass points to navigate by, to know who we are. Absent that we are going to believe the most attractive and seductive lie, or whatever generates in us the most fear.”

— Father Robert McTeigue

Spirituality and religion – the connection to God/Spirit – are what totalitarians fear most. People who understand that they are not meat bodies cannot be propagandized because we understand that life itself, and our own personal self awareness, is not dependent on what happens to the body. We understand that consciousness is divine and ultimately non-physical. Our very essence is independent of the physical world, and therefore, out of their reach.

This is a terrifying idea to the forces of darkness. It is why totalitarians react so brutally and violently when anyone brings up the subject of spirituality or religion or faith, for it goes beyond their authority. Deep down inside, in a hidden recess of their souls, totalitarians understand this. It drives them crazy. They burn churches and attack congregations and forbid all mention of the higher nature of the human being.

 In the world today, under the pressure of a mass awakening of humanity, the forces of darkness have been forced to organize and come out into the open. Over the past two years, under the guise of “climate change” and phony pandemics, we have been locked down, forcibly vaccinated with experimental gene therapies, overprescribed with SSRI’s (anti-depressants), our jobs and businesses shut down, our children forcibly masked for hours in schools. You know the rest. Behind all this is Big Pharma, who have essentially bought off the “public servants” in our parliaments, in Congress, and in the medical establishment.

For example, a new study from UCL (University College  London), published in MedicalXPress, shows that there is no link between low serotonin levels and depression. For decades doctors have been prescribing antidepressants because of this link. Moreover, according to Dr. Robert Malone, it is now established medically that there is a link between antidepressants and violent activity (mass shooters, anyone?). From the study:

Lead author Professor Joanna Moncrieff, a Professor of Psychiatry at UCL and a consultant psychiatrist at North East London NHS Foundation Trust (NELFT), said: "It is always difficult to prove a negative, but I think we can safely say that after a vast amount of research conducted over several decades, there is no convincing evidence that depression is caused by serotonin abnormalities, particularly by lower levels or reduced activity of serotonin.

"The popularity of the 'chemical imbalance' theory of depression has coincided with a huge increase in the use of antidepressants. Prescriptions for antidepressants have risen dramatically since the 1990s, with one in six adults in England and 2% of teenagers now being prescribed an antidepressant in a given year.

"Many people take antidepressants because they have been led to believe their depression has a biochemical cause, but this new research suggests this belief is not grounded in evidence."

University College London, "No evidence that depression is caused by low serotonin levels, finds comprehensive review," https://medicalxpress.com/news/2022-07-evidence-depression-serotonin-comprehensive.html

Oops. Looks like “the science” is wrong and has been wrong for decades. Once again we find the involvement of Big Pharma in the harms that are being done to people who trust the medical establishment.

But there is good news! The link between Vitamin D, and sunlight, to combat depression is strong.

What’s the lesson here?

Perhaps we shouldn’t immediately take some pharmaceutical cocktail (or vaccine) every time we feel bad. Maybe, traditional remedies can help (Ivermectin, anyone?)

Guess what? The FDA (under Emergency Use Authorization, NOT licensure) has authorized a new COVID vaccine!! Yes sir, line up and get your Novavax shots (two-doses recommended by the company). Dr. Malone says that the vax is being promoted to the vaccine hesitant, claiming that the new vax does NOT contain spike protein. According to virologist Malone, this is false. The new vax DOES contain spike protein and is associated with adverse  myocarditis events (blood clotting).

The Root Cause of Human Misery

What motivates people to do irrational things, or act against their best interests? Or go on public mass-shooting sprees?

The root cause is a disconnect from a person’s own inherent spiritual nature. Our society is completely secular. Even the mention of religion or spirituality is roundly criticized by media and spokespersons for government and public institutions.

The hatred of religion and spirituality is the hallmark of those who either lack self-awareness, or who have succumbed to the unending brainwashing that comes from mass media and social media. What bothers me is that people feel miserable following this anti-human narrative, yet they do not connect their misery with their fervent secularism, which denies their personal connection to Source. This is why many turn to drugs. This is why many cling to a politicized scientific narrative that has nothing to with real science, or real investigation. "Mathematics is racist!”

However, it’s better to believe in something than believe in nothing.

Even belief in a dangerous secularism that denies a person their very soul is better than the emptiness and hollowness of no belief at all in anything.

Propaganda, disinformation campaigns, and secularist nonsense fills in the gaps. People become unglued and unhinged.

The secularist narrative is the materialist narrative. The primary belief of all secularists and materialists is the “human beings are meat” theory of life and consciousness. When you die, you’re dead.

I’ve talked about this in most of my posts.

The idea that a person’s consciousness is snuffed out upon death of the body is at the root of all secularist/materialist belief systems. It is the ultimate falsehood. It is the only thing in this world that is 100% WRONG.

As I said in the last post, there is no way to broadly raise a person’s awareness of their  intimate connection to the One. Recognition of your own divinity is a PURELY personal and subjective experience.

Fortunately, the human race is undergoing a mass awakening, for reasons I described in the last post.

A New Track

We’re on a different track now. We can discard the old history, the old narratives, the old “Now I have tos” and “Now I’m supposed tos.”

These are all part of the old track with its wars and conflicts.

This mass awakening isn’t going to happen all at once. It’s happening one person at a time. The filthy closet of the collective human psyche, with all of its self-destructive beliefs and karma, must be cleaned out. We’re going through that process now as a species.

The good news is that EVERY person on this planet can discover that spiritual connection for themselves. It’s personal and subjective, and it’s all yours. Even a totalitarian society cannot deprive you of that Knowledge, even if your body is thrown into a prison.

When you die, you go Home. Some of you reading this understand what I’m saying.

And then you get to come back again, if that is your choice.

This moment in time /evolution is something all civilizations go through. By that I mean, there are other planets “out there” in the galaxy that have gone through the shit we’re going through. Perhaps this is a like a standardized test – the grand Test of light and dark. On a planet of free will, individuals get to make a choice to go either way.

I’m trying to say that the earth experience isn’t for sissies. As incarnated souls, we chose to come here to this rough and ready planet, to help the human race advance in consciousness. Well, we’re in it now! The process of spiritual advancement has begun, initiated by the soul desire of over 7 billion. That’s why this process is so intense, so powerful, so overwhelming.

The more of us who believe we are going to make it, the more of us will create a benevolent future and unleash the power of human creativity. When that happens there will be a a worldwide Renaissance. I see it, I can feel it. Undoubtedly some readers can feel this as well, for it is an aspect of the Light that is beaming forth into the world and exposing the darkness..

Despite appearances, we are on our way to defeating the secularist/materialist crazies, whose narratives are getting nuttier and nuttier every day. Eventually, even they will see the light.

The Mental Plane

In order to make better sense of current events we are going to enter the realm of esoterica and analyze events from 40,000 feet, from the vantage point of the mental plane. Mental plane is a term coined by Marshall Vian Summers to describe an esoteric space that contains the thoughts and the wisdom (and the karma) of the human species.

The mental plane is the collective consciousness space of humanity, created by every soul-infused human being on the planet.

(This discussion makes no sense if you think that self awareness comes from neurons firing in the brain, and that when you die you’re dead.)

We define consciousness as the great American philosopher Arthur Young defined it: a self-reflexive awareness that learns from experience, modeled geometrically on the torus.

Image: Consciousness is modeled on the torus. A torus is like a really fat doughnut with a hole in the middle. Energy moves around it and through it from top to bottom. This illustration shows the human body at the center of a toroidal field.
The energy surrounding the torus moves outward and then inward, reaching out to the world and then moving inward to digest the information and thus learning from experience.

In this discussion, we say that consciousness is an intelligence that is aware of being aware. This definition eliminates phony, programmed AI algos that magically – the process is unexplained – become sentient. The great cartoonist Sidney Harris illustrates the idea of magic masquerading as science:

Yeah. The magical process of AI suddenly but mysteriously becoming self-aware from a bunch of silicon and electricity aint going to happen.

The consciousness space I’m talking about is on the mental plane. It’s an esoteric energy that is generated by 7.3 billion soul-infused human beings, and might look something like this:

Artist’s conception of the collective consciousness space of humanity.

Life Force and Consciousness

The planet provides the living space that is the foundation for the mental plane. The earth itself isn’t a collection of dead things, or an inanimate rock – it contains complex, living ecosystems, and an atmosphere, that are clearly regulated to support humanity and a variety of other species. Therefore, the earth itself is, in a major way, an ally of humanity and all life upon it. It is the platform upon which the mental plane exists.

A purely materialist explanation for consciousness degrades a human being to a pile of meat (Transhumanists call the human body a “meat suit”). Meat doesn’t have self-awareness. Buy some ground beef and try to have a conversation with it! The human body, plus the soul – the animating principle – creates a consciousness space that supports thought. Collectively, then, the human mental plane is a dynamical, ever-changing esoteric system composed of the thoughts, beliefs, intentions, and desires of 7.3 billion human beings.

The idea that all living things, including the planet, are infused with an esoteric component, or a “spiritual” (non-physical) aspect that makes consciousness possible,  has been a part of the human race’s understanding since cavemen looked up at the sky and wondered about the origins of the lights in the sky.

(There is a big debate about whether consciousness has to have a biological basis. Transhumanists say that the substrate upon which consciousness resides can be silicon based just as easily as being biologically based. They are trying to create consciousness from matter, which is doomed to failure. Materialists say that the claimed existence of the soul is also a magical, fantasy creation of deluded people, and has no validity. The entire field of Transhumanism is based upon the fear of body death, which is why they want to create artificial containers to replace the human body that do not deteriorate. Good luck with that, boys and girls.)

Materialists are fond of saying that no proof exists for a spiritual component, but perhaps that argument is simply a lack of understanding and awareness on their part. It could be said that the denial of a human being’s spiritual aspect is the crazy idea.

One can forgive a skeptic or a materialist for failing to understand, for from ground level it does look as if consciousness is entirely dependent on the physical vessel. Implicit in that assumption, however, is the assertion that consciousness dies when the body dies. This is unacceptable to those of us who know better. As Susan Sarandon says in the movie Bull Durham, “The world is a simple place for those without self awareness.”

Moreover, the charge of “no scientific proof” for a non-physical or spiritual aspect of the human being is always rooted in physical evidence, which by definition automatically excludes the esoteric argument and assumes the correctness of the materialist approach.

“Proof” of the spiritual component is always subjective and individual. It cannot be broadly shown to those without this understanding, or with scientific instruments that can only measure physical properties. Materialists cannot disprove the esoteric-soul argument and spiritualists cannot prove the idea that a non-physical component is the animating principle.

 This is the crux of the battle for the souls, minds, and hearts of humanity in this spiritual war. It’s “humans are physically incarnated souls” versus “humans are meat.”

A certain segment of the population (some say the vast majority) simply does not recognize that their physical bodies have been soul-infused. The Chinese call the life force chi. Westerners call this the God force, or just the force, the Japanese call it Ki, the Hindus call it prana. The Hindus say that prana permeates reality on all levels, including inanimate objects. This idea is embodied in reincarnation, the non-physical soul inhabiting different physical bodies through time.

The Fundamental Conflict through History

Thus the conflicts throughout history between the self-aware and the less-aware. I would say that this has been the fundamental conflict of humanity for the past 6,000 years. Forget the political and the economic and the sociological explanations. Fundamentally, those with self awareness are motivated to get along with their fellow man. Something deep inside the person understands that affinity and cooperation are the keys to life and living. This understanding is enough to prevent violent actions and the overwhelming greed that allows one to trample over others, and to start conflicts and wars.

Such are the depravities and malignancies of human beings. They occur only when one turns away from one’s personal connection to one’s own inherent, divine nature. This divine nature is powerful and benevolent.

Even though a person may turn away from their higher awareness, it still exists. Therefore, even the most hardened sociopath is contributing a positive energy (if only in a very limited way) to the consciousness space. Every human is a generator of esoteric energy, for each human is infused with the light-energy that comes from life force. Moreover, free will allows anyone who has turned away to turn back toward the light. Therefore, the game of earth is rigged in favor of higher consciousness; modified, of course, by free will decisions.

You’d never know it by examining the history of humanity! For millennia, humans have turned away from the light, etching history with intra-species wars and conflict.

Now, however, we have reached the End Times. The battle for earth is underway in earnest. Who has the upper hand at this point?

A rational observer would say that evil is ascendant, that fascism and communism and authoritarianism are rapidly subsuming the liberal democracies that are left in the world. From lockdowns to mandated experimental gene therapies to mass shootings, to economic uncertainty, the world seems to be spinning out of control.

Looks can be deceiving. Here we come to the essence of my argument, which is an esoteric one.

Jumping the Shark

Rational observers make a huge assumption: that the earth is on the same historical track it has always been on. Because historians and philosophers and scientists don’t account for the mental plane, and its effects on physical systems, discussions about the direction humanity is going in are all based within the same parameters. Einstein once said, “You can’t solve a problem with the same consciousness that created the problem.”  But that’s what we do, generation after generation.

My proposal is as follows: What if the earth has jumped the shark, or rather, jumped on to a new track of history? How could that even happen?

The only physical evidence for this leap of logic is (1) for the first time in history, all persons on the planet are connected through a worldwide messaging system, and (2) shit is happening on this planet that has never happened before in human history, and it’s happening all at once. This suggests that, esoterically, the earth has switched tracks. The two are linked, I believe.

We are all sitting inside the consciousness field, and we always have been. The difference is that the internet has made everyone aware of it. Peter Russell’s “global brain” has become a reality. Although Russell’s concept refers to the physical nodes and pathways of the internet, there is also a global brain on the mental plane, with over 7 billion human nodes. Again, we must distinguish between a purely physical concept and a more esoteric one, or doom humanity to a degraded existence wherein semi-conscious “meat suits” try to get over on each other until the end of time.

Just as Russell’s global brain is a collection of physical nodes and networks in the physical plane, so too is the esoteric global brain a collection of soul-infused human beings on the mental plane. The conscious thoughts of human beings on the mental plane create the human consciousness space, as in the image above.

Beliefs are just thoughts we keep thinking over and over again. Clearly, the human belief system is oriented around conflict and war, because generation after generation, we have accepted the idea that “human nature” is barbaric and greedy.

Just as with the internet, whose global network contain packets of data, so too does the earth’s mental plane contain packets of data called thoughts. Change the packets, change the orientation of the collective consciousness. Because thought always precedes action, physical conditions can then change.

What if “human nature” is just a dynamical creation of the collective consciousness on the mental plane? A dynamical system is one where the outcome always changes in response to different inputs that come into the system. This suggests that the consciousness space can be changed if the inputs (thoughts) change. Here there are no physical barriers to change. The mental plane responds at the speed of thought. All that is necessary to change “human nature” is a collective re-orientation of thought and belief.

I’m proposing this concept because the human race has made a lot of technical progress, but we are still fighting and killing and screaming at each other the same today as 6,000 years ago, at the dawn of recorded history. Something is missing; some concept we haven’t grasped is preventing us from creating peace on earth and unleashing the creative potential of our species.

The materialist solutions have all been tried and found wanting. That doesn’t stop them from being put forward over and over.

We’re seeing it again. In the spiritual battle for the souls and the minds of humanity, a Transhumanist, technocratic, authoritarian future is being created, complete with AI, neural-chipped humans connected to an Internet of Bodies and wired into the Internet of Things, complete with smart cities, lifelong vaccination, central bank digital currencies, and social credit scores to make sure no one questions the government narrative. It’s the last gasp from the old consciousness that has dominated the mental plane for millennia; one last attempt for a Final Solution for humanity.

The World of AI

The Track of History

Behind this attempt is a flawed conception of human nature.

Imagine that the track of human history is circular. We go around and around the track, century after century, creating more conflict and destruction. The track is so long that, like the horizon line on earth, it looks straight and flat. We think we are moving linearly when in fact we are going in a circle.

The Old Track of History

History repeats itself in eerie fashion; never precisely the same, but always according to the old saw, “The more things change the more they remain the same.” This saying expresses the idea that the human consciousness space never really evolves; it stays stuck in the same old rut of beliefs about itself. That’s because we keep traversing the same circle of history, over and over again.  

Until the “jump the shark” moment.

Jumping the Shark

A jump in consciousness can propel us onto a new track, clear of the old history and the old karma and the old beliefs.

The New Track of History

There is no physical evidence to believe this assertion, except that lately, the trajectory of human events has veered so wildly off-course from the track it used to be on. Of course we have had economic booms and busts before, and even world wars. However, the origin of these historical events had explainable causes, which historians have studied and come to general agreement on. But never have we simultaneously experienced planet-wide lockdowns, experimental vaccines given to billions, the crumbling of formerly stable institutions, gender dysphoria on a massive scale, mass shootings in the civilian sector, hatred and polarization all over social media, and a crumbling world economy. In the US, there are over 200,000 migrants from 150 countries presenting themselves at the border every month since March of 2022.

This is some crazy shit.

These events, concurrently, defy explanation in any terms we are familiar with. To explain them we have to take a jump out of the box of old assumptions and into a more “fuzzy logic” approach. Mathworld says about fuzzy logic,

In effect, much of Fuzzy Logic may be viewed as a methodology for computing with words rather than numbers. Although words are inherently less precise than numbers, their use is closer to human intuition.”

Take that one step further and compute with thought instead of words. Now we have a far more intuitive, fuzzy, and multidimensional computing system. This definition could, perhaps, describe the operation of the mental plane.

If the human race has launched itself onto a different historical track, what might the new track look like?

Well, if such a profound consciousness event did occur, its origins would not be explainable by past events, because we left the old track of history behind. This origins of this event would only be accessible through the mental plane. Materialists, Transhumanists, and sociopaths would have no idea, and would operate as if everything was the same. Unfortunately, access to the mental plane can only be personal and subjective. Fortunately, we are all connected within it, even those who are not aware of it. 

Futurists always look to the past to predict future events. We look to the “lessons of history” to guide us. But if humanity is on a new track, then the history of the old track is gone. When we look out through the train of history’s window on the new track, we no longer see conflict and war and poverty and injustice down through the millennia of history. We see green spaces and clean air and we can all take a fresh, deep breath.

There’s only one problem: We can always re-create the same history, the same greedy and conflicted “human nature” on the new track just as we did on the old track.

Why would we want to do that?

The simplest explanation is habit: “We’ve always done it that way.” We’re used to it. Human beings don’t like change.

The other answer is that the memories of the old track of history are still strong in our minds. Although the new track is historically clear, we see shadows from the old track through our mental and emotional filters. Perception is reality! This encourages us to look to the old past for predictions about the new future.

It is not obvious at all that we are on a different track. In fact it seems that we are quickly accelerating toward a hell on earth. Our memories kick in and we say, “You see, fascism is coming back.” “That politician is another Adolf Hitler.” “We are all doomed.” These premonitions come from our memories of the old track, because these events actually happened on the old track and many of us lived through them.

Things are going to hell because the light of higher consciousness is shining so brightly now that any system, organization, or individual that lacks integrity is collapsing. The dark underbelly of human society, with its human trafficking, drug running, and arms trafficking, is being exposed to the global brain. The crazies in the World Economic Forum, in Big Pharma, and in Big Tech and their nutty plans for humanity are being revealed. Individuals are feeling a sort of “psychic pressure” from the mental plane as the energy ramps up and events change rapidly.  

Perhaps the hell we are experiencing today is just the resolution of millennia of old karma in the human consciousness space. Although the new track of history is clean, the collective karma still exists on the mental plane. However, people are sick and tired of the old belief systems and the old ways. The desire for positive change is so strong it is creating a powerful new wave in the mental plane. Peace on earth and the unburdening of the human spirit requires that humanity’s old karma, and old ideas, be worked through. You can’t solve a problem with the same consciousness that created the problem.

It would be nice to clean out a filthy closet by waving a magic wand. Unfortunately, you gotta put on your grubby clothes, wade in, and get dirty. You gotta be willing to work long enough and hard enough to clean out the old crap, wipe down the filthy and moldy walls and floor, clean out the cobwebs and breathe in clouds of dust. I believe that is what is happening now. Current events are a madhouse of insanity as millennia of karma is being worked out in the collective human psyche.

Read the headlines every day for a new dose of insanity. The unbalanced ones are losing their minds.

Some guy dresses up as a girl and begins firing at a crowd of people celebrating in a parade. A man and his eight-year-old daughter are walking down the street in Chicago and she gets killed by a stray bullet from a gang fight. A guy in a SUV deliberately runs over people in a Christmas parade. A woman is standing by the subway tracks in New York, waiting for a train when some psycho shoves her onto the tracks just before the train comes. People are being mugged on the streets in random acts of violence. Some nutjob with no money spends thousands of dollars on guns and then executes 18 kids while 19 cops stand by for over an hour with riot shields and guns and do nothing (‘the door was locked, we couldn’t get into the classroom’). These are just a few of the acts of insanity that we have never seen before on such a massive scale. They are occurring just about every day now.

These are karmic acts between people that go back to the old track of history. They are unexplainable until we recognize our higher potential, and get more expert on the mental plane. We have to do this because we aren’t going back. We’ve jumped the shark and crossed the Rubicon to another dimension of consciousness and history.   

Conclusion   

An awakening of consciousness is occurring on earth, fueled by the desire of 7.3 billion people for change.

We’ve all had enough of corruption, injustice, poverty, war, and conflict. We’re scared because, deep down in our awareness, we realize that we’ve passed on to a new dimension of human existence. People are afraid and angry because they don’t know what will happen, and the historical reference points we use no longer apply. That creates a lot of anxiety.

Chins up! The human race is shedding old, unworkable beliefs about itself. We are about to step into our power – the power of self awareness and the connection to a higher power that will direct events in a much more benign way.

But first we have to clean out the closet. And it’s really, really filthy and cluttered in there.

I’ll leave you with a quote some have attributed to Winston Churchill, the man who saw Britain through the brutal Nazi bombings in World War 2:

The positive thinker sees the invisible, sees the intangible, and achieves the impossible.”

Background – A world economy in transition

The world’s economy and financial system is a complex system with billions of participants. This system is under enormous stress due to the recent actions of influential state actors. The Western (US) attack on the Russian ruble, and the freezing of Russian assets, has exacerbated a political shift that has turned state actors against the dollar. Countries in Europe and Asia saw how the current U.S. government weaponized the SWIFT interbank system[1] against a country (Russia) it doesn’t like. (SWIFT is a secure communication system between banks that allows them to quickly process international payments.) This political weaponization of routine currency payments between nations pissed off a lot of people. It has further cemented a new alignment of nations that is creating an alternative way of conducting business internationally.

The world economy is emerging out of a predictable dollar-based system into a more unpredictable one. This is causing huge volatility in markets around the world. And a lot of fear and anxiety.

The SWIFT system of international trade has dominated world commerce, and greatly benefits the U.S. dollar. The US controls SWIFT, so the U.S. government basically has (or had) control over global financial payments. From Washington DC, the US can damage the economy of any country by cutting it off from SWIFT. In 2018, the US also cut Iran off from SWIFT, which has caused continued damage to Iran’s economy.

U.S. sponsored economic sanctions are being rejected by powerful economies such as China, and other nations in China’s orbit. Despite its attack on Ukraine, Russia has gained sympathy from many nations because the U.S. sanctions have made it difficult for Russia to sell its products and conduct the business it needs to support its people. Nobody in the US cares about Putin and Russia (or the radical mullahs in Iran), but other nations ask the question, “What if we are next?” People want to be able to do business with each other without politics getting in the way.

As a reaction to the sanctions on its economy, Russia has demanded that all purchases of their liquid natural gas and oil be transacted in rubles, not dollars, bypassing SWIFT. This has further disrupted supply chains that world commerce relies upon, because Russia is a leading exporter of natural gas and oil.

In addition, the current U.S. government has curtailed domestic energy fossil fuel production in their zeal for a carbon-neutral economy. As a result, gasoline is much higher at the pump and truckers are beginning to run out of diesel fuel. Trucks transport 80% of the food and spare parts and appliances and the stuff in our hardware stores. Like it or not, trucks are the lifeblood of our economy. Not to mention that farm tractors, construction machinery, and transport trains also run on diesel engines.

Renewable energy is a wonderful idea. Unfortunately, wind and solar are intermittent energy sources. Wind and solar (with battery backups to release energy during periods when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow) are great for single-family homes connected to the fossil fuel grid, but they do not produce continuous baseline power generation, 24 hours a day.

Moreover, wind and solar will not solve our oil problem. Wind and solar are used to make electricity, but electricity won’t run today’s cars, and it won’t run tractors, or construction equipment, or transport trains, or aircraft. Oil and electricity are used for different things. Even if we generate more electricity, it doesn’t fix our oil problem.

And then there is the post-2008 era of massive Quantitative Easing and near-zero interest rates, which has led to a massive expansion of  U.S. government debt. The U.S. government has engaged in a trillions-of-dollars printing and spending spree over the past two years. This has resulted in massive inflation on vital goods and services. Like piling debt onto a credit card, you can only print so much money before the system maxes out! With a $30 trillion debt and over $9 trillion on the balance sheet of the Federal Reserve, the consequences of more money printing by the government is even higher inflation. More and more money chases a limited amount of goods and services, the production of which has been reduced over the past two years by COVID, vaccine mandates, and lockdowns.

F. William Engdahl sums this up succinctly:

Since January 2020 the Fed, Bank of England, European Central Bank, and Bank of Japan have injected a combined $9 trillion in near zero rate credit into the world banking system. Since a Fed policy change in September 2019, it enabled Washington to increase public debt by a staggering $10 trillion in less than 3 years. Then the Fed again covertly bailed out Wall Street by buying $120 billion per month of US Treasury bonds and Mortgage-Backed Securities, creating a huge bond bubble.”

According to Catherine Austin Fitts, former Assistant Secretary of HUD for Housing, the above is a planned operation. Where did that all the new money go? Not into the economy to procude more goods and services! I went to big banks and wealthy insiders like Larry Fink and Blackrock, who are picking up assets on the cheap as law and order breaks down in our cities. Fitts calls it “a significant financial coup d’etat. It’s not a turndown (recession), it’s a takedown.”

While the US has tried to wreck the Russian currency, and has inflated the dollar, China has cozied up to Russia. Russia has vast natural resources that China is in desperate need of to support its economy and its 1.3 billion people. China has offered to support Russia financially if it gets into trouble because of sanctions.[2]

Last year, the Chinese government  signed a 25-year agreement with Iran to support the regime in Tehran.

Combine the US attack on the ruble with China’s worldwide Belt and Road initiative, and you have a world economy in massive flux.

With Belt and Road, China is playing a worldwide game of Go while the US is playing chess with Russia. Go is a strategic board game in which the aim is to surround more territory than the opponent, whereas chess is a game that tries to capture the opponent’s king, killing as many pieces as necessary, strewing the board with dead bodies.

(This map does not show the effect of Belt and Road in South America and Latin America, but it gives an idea of the planetary game of Go China is playing.)

Well, there are a lot of economic casualties these days, especially when you consider the massive swell of migrants that are pouring over our southern border (financed by the Mexican drug cartels, who control large swaths of Mexican territory), along with Chinese made fentanyl that is killing tens of thousands of Americans every year. The U.S. government is facilitating this migration (and the resultant drug smuggling) which makes our government the world’s leading human trafficking organization. In March, April, May, and June of 2022 over 200,000 migrants came to our border from over 100 countries, including those in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, South America, and Latin America, and that number is increasing each month.

Migrants will put intense wage pressure on our working class as they compete for jobs, and will eventually drive down wages for everyone. That benefits multinational corporations who want labor costs reduced, as well as federally funded NGOs (non-governmental organizations) such as Catholic Relief Services who recruit and help migrants to the US.[3] But it doesn’t benefit the working class who are under intense pressure from inflation to make ends meet. (Forget the official government inflation figures. If you count the three most necessary items in anyone’s life – food, energy, and utilities – it is around 25%, not 8.6%)

We are a nation of immigrants, but a nation needs borders.

According to an analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, more than 12 million people were “deported” – either removed or returned – from the US during the Clinton administration. More than 10 million were removed or returned during the Bush administration. Even President Obama, who has always favored amnesty for immigrants, removed or returned over 5 million during his 8 years in office. In September, 2021, he said, in an interview with “Good Morning America,”

Immigration is tough. It always has been because, on the one hand, I think we are naturally a people that wants to help others. And we see tragedy and hardship and families that are desperately trying to get here so that their kids are safe, and they're in some cases fleeing violence or catastrophe. ... At the same time, we're a nation state. We have borders. The idea that we can just have open borders is something that ... as a practical matter, is unsustainable.”

We are living through a created crisis

Whew! That’s the situation we’re living in, as I see it. Seems hopeless, doesn’t it? As inflation rises and prices for essentials climb, as shortages occur and markets fall, many people see gloom and doom, and a complete collapse of the world economy. Call me delusional, but I don’t believe that will happen.

The world’s economic and financial system is certainly entering a more chaotic state in which formerly reliable supply chains are breaking down and the old reliable dollar-based financial system is under stress. But it isn’t collapsing, as the doomsayers loudly shout. The problems in the US economy are created, not systemic.

Food processing plants and grocery stores, truckers and farmers, and energy supplies, are under attack. Massive government overspending is largely responsible for increased inflation. These are political problems and human problems, not systemic ones. We are experiencing a  crisis that human intervention has created and human intervention can solve.

The average schmoe has never been able to influence the system, we just depend on it to work. Now, however, the system is breaking down because of human intervention. What can we do?

Above all we can ignore the screeching chaos merchants in the media and get informed. We can vote power-hungry political clowns from both parties out of office. We can also go out in the streets and protest and make a lot of noise to spur action by our benighted and incompetent national government in DC, which is run by stupid nincompoops in both parties. That will help, because the problem with the economy is largely poor economic and financial policy based on political narratives.

The Mental Plane

While we’re doing that, we also have to create something different on the mental plane. “Mental plane” is a term coined by Marshal Vian Summers. It refers to the world’s collective consciousness space, composed of 7.3 billion conscious human creators.

Thought precedes action. All action first originates in thought. For 6,000 years human history has essentially been interludes of peace between wars and conflict. History tells us that our thoughts are all messed up, because humans continue to create poverty, injustice, and misery over and over again. So, we have to collectively change our thinking.

The human race is ready for this. For the first time in world history, the world is connected. 7.3 billion thinking human beings are available in the collective consciousness space.

We have to intelligently apply hope and faith as a strategy. Faith and hope aren’t vague concepts; they involve the practical application of thought to a specific goal or purpose. We do this all the time when making life plans or achieving business goals. Now we can do it on the mental plane to affect the complex human systems on the planet, and make a better world.

I visualize the consciousness space of humanity like this:

Billions of humans are walking around on the planet, connected to an esoteric force generated by their own consciousness. We’re sitting in the middle of a powerful creative force that we don’t think to use, because we’re so distracted by the craziness of life. Many of us just accept doom and gloom from the media. We talk about how bad things are as if it is inevitable and will continue. It will continue only because we’re creating it.

Anecdotal evidence suggests that using the mental plane can be effective. A U.S. Department of Justice publication concluded in 1981 that using Transcendental Meditation reduced crime in experimental cities where large groups of meditators gathered. A similar project was undertaken in 1993 and again between 2007–2010. According to the Institute for Science and Public Policy,

In September 2003, the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation devoted all four issues of its annual publication to a special volume entitled “Transcendental Meditation in Criminal Rehabilitation and Crime Prevention” (J Offender Rehab 36 (1-4), 2003). This special volume presents a wide range of research showing that the practice of Transcendental Meditation can significantly reduce crime, criminal aggression, violence, recidivism, terrorism, and even international conflict, while simultaneously developing higher levels of psychological functioning—higher states of consciousness—in TM practitioners (see article titles and abstracts below).”

Of course it is difficult to measure these effects or establish causation. What would happen if, instead of a couple of thousand meditators using the mental plane, millions participated? At the very least, such activity comes under the heading of “Do No Harm.”

Human consciousness is the driver behind the rapid changes to our economy and our lives, because people are fed up with the old, corrupt organizations that only benefit a privileged few. People are asking and praying for improvements. That human desire from billions of people is creating a powerful force for change in the human consciousness space.

We have to go up to 40,000 feet and take another look at the way human beings have organized themselves. This takes us beyond the physical body, beyond politics and public policy and education, and into the essential nature of human consciousness. We have to finally acknowledge that there is a higher power, it is benevolent, and it exists within each of us. And then we have to use it to move the Overton Window upward toward more positive outcomes. And it doesn’t take a majority of us to have an effect.

Transhumanism

Purely materialist solutions will no longer work without positive action on the mental plane, utilizing the human being’s spiritual component on a completely interconnected planet. That is why, for example, the Transhumanist movement will fail. Transhumanists are the people behind the dark aspects of societal change.

Transhumanism completely and deliberately rejects humanity’s spirituality, and believes that consciousness goes away upon death of the body. The Transhumanist worldview is a doomed attempt to escape from the jaws of physical death, not understanding that consciousness continues after the body dies.

We are seeing certain people trying to implement a Transhumanist economic order (The New Normal, The Great Reset, etc.). This Build Back Better technocratic/materialist wet dream requires an all-powerful central authority for it to work. In this crazy plan for humanity, destroying the private economy must occur, for the private economy has independent thinkers and actors. Lockdowns, for example, wrecked the private economy of small businesses. Corporate Big Box stores were immune. Lockdowns – even if necessary – made the central authority much more powerful.

 The goal of the Transhumanists is a world where humans are chipped and neural implanted, living in smart cities where all human bodies are connected and monitored by programmed AIs that are controlled from above by a few, and where the government controls all of your money via central bank digital currencies.[4] This dystopian vision for humanity’s future is an evolutionary dead end, as is the entire Transhumanist worldview. If embraced, it will result in the collapse and eventual destruction of the human race.

Fortunately, we don’t have to go there. Transhumanism, like all myopic philosophies, is acting as a catalyst to show people where we don’t want to go. It’s a motivation to connect with the higher power and create a much better future.

In order to save humanity from its own destruction, we must reject the doomsayers, the war mongers, the fear merchants in the media, the Transhumanists, and the forces of darkness that have chosen to ignore their personal connection to the divine intelligence – a universal intelligence that is waiting for us to recognize who we are, and change the future. Human and political problems can be influenced by positive action on the mental plane, and then in the physical world. We must recognize the power of consciousness.

Let us not just hope for a good future, but actively create it.

In the powerful words of a Navajo elder:

There is no greater gift than having a soul, a spirit, and moving, in rhythm, with God’s wisdom, with God’s love, with God’s power, with God’s vision of who we are as a species....The [new] wave that is coming has a fresh new heart and a strong, strong, spirit.”

Amen.

Integrity

Systems and organizations that lack integrity will implode. Whatever components of business and finance that lack integrity will collapse. That is causing some pain, but what is the alternative? 6,000 more years of fighting, injustice, poverty, and war?

The human family has made a collective decision on the mental plane to propel humanity to higher levels of cooperation and integrity. As a result, anything lacking coherence will fall apart. That’s a good thing, even though massive change may occur in our lives.

Let’s celebrate the change because it is being driven by the light of higher consciousness penetrating the darkness and exposing the dark underbelly of human society.

The collective human psyche must be cleansed of its dark memes, and the accumulated karma of humanity’s 200,000-year history on this planet. That is happening right now, and it’s happening quickly and decisively.

The only power the dark has is to convince you that failure and misery and anarchy is inevitable, and that it is all-powerful. That is a perversion of the truth. The light of God and higher consciousness is all-powerful, even though a small minority of humanity has freely chosen to turn away from the light and is attempting to create a dystopian world.

So what? Let them try! It can never happen if enough of us recognize our connection to the Creative Source. There are millions of us who have already done so, and that’s enough to create a tipping point for humanity.

The fresh new wave is creating more awakened humans every day, which is why the Dark is fighting so desperately to hang on to its power.

Don’t get convinced by the forces of darkness into creating a miserable future. The dark only has the power we give it. Exercise your spiritual power on the mental plane and create a bright future for the planet and for the human race.

Hope can be a strategy if it is applied with the conscious application of our inherent co-creative power!

CDBCs work hand-in-hand with social credit scores, and make it easy to track every financial transaction a person makes from the moment of birth until death.

Including the Federal Reserve's "fight" against inflation

From Mike Whitney:

The media would like to believe the Fed is doing everything in its power to fight inflation, but it’s not true.Yes, the Fed raised rates by 50 basis points in May and, yes, the Fed is trying to sound as “hawkish” as possible. But these things are designed to dupe the public not to reduce inflation.

Let me explain.

The current rate of inflation in the US is 8.6%, a 40-year high.At its May meeting, the Fed raised its target Fed Funds Rate to 1%.Got that? So the Fed’s rate is still a measly 1%. That’s what the media is trying to hide from you, and that’s why you might have to read 9 or 10 articles before you find a journalist who provides you with the actual rate.

Why are they hiding the rate?

Because the rate is 7.6% below the rate of inflation, so it doesn’t do a damn thing. It’s another public relations travesty dolled-up to look like serious monetary policy. But it’s a joke, and you can see it’s a joke.Think of it like this: If I loaned you $100 at 1% interest– but inflation was running at 8%– I would lose 7 bucks per year, right?

Right. And that’s what the Fed is doing. When interest rates are set below the rate of inflation, then the Fed loses money on every loan. In other words, the Fed is providing a subsidy to the banks for borrowing money. Have you ever heard of anything so ridiculous?

How would you like a deal like that? How would you like it if the Fed paid you interest on your credit card debt? You’d probably like that, right? But—if you were honest with yourself—you’d admit that it was a “gift”, because that’s what it is, a gift. The big banks are getting another handout from Uncle Sugar. That’s the whole deal in a nutshell.

Meanwhile, you and I and the other 300 million serfs, continue to pay a hefty 18% to the banks that are being subsidized by the Federal Reserve. Sound fair?

So, how much would the Fed have to hike rates if it really wanted to do its job? Check out this clip from an article at the Chicago Booth Review:

“The usual wisdom says that to reduce inflation, the Fed must raise the nominal interest rate by more than the inflation rate. In that way, the real interest rate rises, cooling the economy.

At a minimum, then, according to the usual wisdom, the interest rate should be above 8.5 percent. Now. The Taylor rule says the interest rate should be 2 percent (the Fed’s inflation target), plus 1.5 times how much inflation exceeds 2 percent, plus the long-term real rate. That means an interest rate of around 12 percent. Yet the Fed sits, and contemplates at most a percent or two by the end of the year.” Source: “Why Hasn’t the Fed Done More to Fight Inflation” Chicago Booth Review

So if the Fed was serious about fighting inflation, they would have raised rates to roughly 12%. Instead, they have decided to use their allies in the media to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes. That’s what’s going on.

It’s another big snow-job.
