A European Union Most Bizarre: Public Spectacle of Pagan Lucifer Invocations Taking Place in EU Leaves Little to the Imagination

[ Thank God I Live in America, Which is STILL a Christian nation, no matter what lies the #Bilderberg owned TV networks & media broadcasts. ]

Here it is. You can’t make this stuff up, people.  I could author 40 pages of essay on all of the overt explicit Illuminati Luciferian  / Satanic symbolism in these ‘public events’, [ that’s what they call these gatherings for TV ] but you all already know all about all that, and you can detect the obvious at a glance. They make no effort to hide anything anymore. If #Christians among my readers had ANY doubts that we are living in the Last Days, this video of clips ought to settle that question once and for all.

Please know that I am posting this NOT to participate in the orgy of #Luciferic symbolism and public invocations on display here, but to help educate young people and the generally clueless everywhere as to what is being done right under their noses, in plain view, only thinly disguised as “public performances” and celebrations.

Oh, they’re celebrating something, alright. It’s just not what you think it is. These ceremonies are invocations to darkness. I cannot prove that, of course. But my soul knows what my soul knows.

Islamic Jihad Graffitti Appearing All Over America: TV News Media Blackout

This disturbing phenomenon [ Islamic Jihad graffitti on American buildings and other public spaces ] has been escalating for several years, yet you don’t hear a peep about it on local or national TV news broadcasts. Local officials scurry out to cover or otherwise remove the material, but I worry this will get to a point where the messages begin appearing faster than they can erase and eradicate them. These images are from all over the United States. Some are also from Great Britain. Please share this report.

Humanity’s Shared Future with Artificial Intelligence: Just How Awful Will It Be? Or Not.

Artificial-Intelligence01_Web

“How will humanity respond when confronted with the sickening knowledge that networks of self-evolving computing machines, self-bred, self-replicating AI corporate conglomerates, with aggregate IQs which are the equivalent of 3,375 or more, begin quietly restructuring the world to fit their own needs for the next 500 million years? Will humanity even realize that such an event is happening, when or if it occurs?”  – Screenshots news blog 

> It’s 2039 in Seattle Washington. AI computer engineer John Ross wakes up one morning after spending a late night at the corporate AI lab, where he is the director of R&D, uploading new financial growth and budget cutting algorithms into the company computer, Gill.  Arriving at work, Mr. Ross discovers to his dismay that not only is he locked out of the corporate campus [ none of his eye scans or palm scans work ], but he has been deleted from the Seattle payroll and relocated to the Sydney Australia branch, soon to be working on a part-time basis only.  No human being took this action.  Gill’s upgrade from last night endowed the thinking machine with the prerogatives to take all reasonable actions which would bring the company’s projected 4th quarter profit margins into line with original projections from late 2038. She took several simultaneous actions overnight, based on her upgrade, laying off 4,000 Seattle area employees, including her creator, Dr. John Ross. She also ordered a moving van, bought airline tickets for John and everyone in his family, disconnected his electrical and internet service, cancelled his garbage pick-up, emailed every contact in his address book a press release with the news, and called his wife while she slept, delivering the jolting news via voicemail, in a lilting electronic monotone, followed by “We’re sorry to see you go. Don’t forget to be at John’s going away party today at 2pm on the 3rd floor lounge.” By the time Dr. Ross figures out what has taken place, he learns about his own going away party for his departure to Australia on his smart watch company news alert, delivered orally from his wrist while he is still trying to get into the building.

Last night’s show on Coast to Coast Radio show sampled the broad gamut of possibilities that AI [ artificial intelligence ] presents for humanity, both wonderful and dire, as most AI scientists now believe we have a tenuous window of less than 40 years before thinking, self-updating, even possibly self-replicating AI machines achieve levels of intelligence that surpass that of humankind by a factor of one thousand times or more. Seriously.

Artificial Intelligence (AI)

“Artificial Intelligence is the ability of a computer or other machines to perform actions thought to require intelligence. Among these actions are logical deduction and inference, make decisions based on past experience, solve problems with insufficient or conflicting information and  artificial vision.  AI is frequently used to  improve solutions and attack problems that may not be solvable using standard methods.”

This potentially bizarre new reality is bearing down upon humanity at an alarming rate of speed. Director of Research at the Centre for Theoretical Physics at Cambridge, Dr. Stephen Hawking recently authored an article on AI for The Huffington Post and had this to say about the urgent need to address recent developments in AI:

“Artificial intelligence (AI) research is now progressing rapidly. Recent landmarks such as self-driving cars, a computer winning at Jeopardy!, and the digital personal assistants Siri, Google Now and Cortana are merely symptoms of an IT arms race fueled by unprecedented investments and building on an increasingly mature theoretical foundation. Such achievements will probably pale against what the coming decades will bring.

The potential benefits are huge; everything that civilization has to offer is a product of human intelligence; we cannot predict what we might achieve when this intelligence is magnified by the tools AI may provide, but the eradication of war, disease, and poverty would be high on anyone’s list. Success in creating AI would be the biggest event in human history.

Unfortunately, it might also be the last, unless we learn how to avoid the risks. In the near term, for example, world militaries are considering autonomous weapon systems that can choose and eliminate their own targets; the UN and Human Rights Watch have advocated a treaty banning such weapons. In the medium term, as emphasized by Erik Brynjolfsson and Andrew McAfee in The Second Machine Age, AI may transform our economy to bring both great wealth and great dislocation.”

Based on the comments of the four distinguished guests on last night’s Coast Radio show, we are VERY unprepared as a species for the possibility of our eventual, even possibly accidental, AI induced displacement as the most intelligent creatures on the planet. How will humanity respond when confronted with the sickening knowledge that networks of self-evolving computing machines, self-bred, self-replicating AI corporate conglomerates, with aggregate IQs which are the equivalent of 3,375 or more, begin quietly restructuring the world to fit their own needs for the next 500 million years? Will humanity even realize that such an event is happening, when or if it occurs?

According to Dr. Susan Schneider, it may – in fact – be all but undetectable. Elon Musk has been worried enough about such prospects that he recently set aside 10 million dollars to fund AI research which would avert such catastrophes.

“If we build these devices to take care of everything for us, eventually they’ll think faster than us and they’ll get rid of the slow humans to run companies more efficiently.”  – Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak

2029-2038: The AI Pandora’s Box Begins to Open

To state that the human race is presently unprepared for the immediate potentialities of emergent AI thinking machines may turn out to be the understatement of the century, that possibly being the LAST century in which an organic, soul incarnate, carbon based biological ‘organic’ species has predominance over the earth with all it’s natural assets and treasures. There are any number of imagined ‘AI worst case scenarios’, [ one such fictional ‘AI worst case scenario’ was played out at the beginning of this post ], but it is the UNIMAGINABLE series of potentially disastrous computing events which might ultimately be the unraveling of humanity’s position at the top of the intelligence food chain.

Both James Barrat and Dr. Schneider stated last night in their interviews that at least 52 nations around the world are actively pursuing AI as a battlefield option, specifically either AI enhanced human super-soldiers, or AI battlefield robots which would be programmed to make a kill WITHOUT consulting a human engineer or supervising officer. These are very alarming developments. This week I’ll be posting a whole series of reports on where we stand with current military applications of battlefield AI. Please feel free to share them, as we need to raise more public awareness of what is happening. It’s time to encourage more robust public debate and conscientious examination of the spiritual, moral and ethical implications of emergent AI.  Before humanity chooses to race off the cliff with AI technology, shouldn’t we at least build some proper parachutes?

A Tribute to the Legendary Starman David Bowie: Photos, Music, Links

I’ve been truly shaken to learn of David Bowie’s untimely death. I had to sit down when I saw the headline. No one ever expects the death of one of their childhood heroes. Throughout the morning as I put together these tributes, I listened to the full tracks of Black Star, while I worked. Any man, quietly dying of cancer, who worked on perfecting his latest studio release up until the very last days of his own life to present a final work of musical art for the world, is a man we can all love and admire for his courage, his undying talent, his dignity, his refusal to elicit pity, his dedication to his music, and his determination to set his own pain aside in order to give the world one last gift of music and personal creativity.

It’s personal for me. I have loved this man and his music and art for decades, literally, since I was a very young teen in the 1970s, struggling with my own sexual identity. Trying to find my own way in a very messed up family, in an oppressive mostly fundamentalist small town in the south, I papered the walls of my teenage bedroom with Bowie photos and blasted his music through the house at all hours, much to the despair of my parents, who thought he was the most bizarre assemblage of a human being they had ever seen. All the more reason for me to turn up the volume, I thought. David Bowie could well be credited for being one of the reasons I did not commit suicide as a gay teen. Seriously. Thank you David, for letting me know it was ‘ok’ for me to just be ME in 1972. Gay people were still being beat up and dragged behind trucks in parts of the deep south, and it wasn’t that much better in central North Carolina, where being gay meant living a double life, having “fake boyfriends” in high school to survive and sneaking into gay bars with a fake ID at age 17 in the hopes you might find others who were as different as you were, who were also finding a way to cope.

It turned out eventually, much to everyone’s surprise, that David Bowie was NOT gay, although to look at him in the early seventies that might have been considered arguable. He was one of the first popular musicians other than 1960s rocker ‘Little Richard’ to publicly flaunt his feminine side, so androgynous in some early photos that any decent drag queen might have been jealous. He was rumored to have had a wild sexual affair with Mick Jagger in the early seventies, and sexual androgyny was a frequent theme in his early songs. David Bowie finally arrived at the altar, was twice married, and has surviving adult two children: Duncan Jones and Alexandria Jones.

“Planet Earth is a lot bluer today without David Bowie, the greatest rock star who ever fell to this or any other world. He was the hottest tramp, the slinkiest vagabond, the prettiest star who ever shouted “You’re not alone!” to an arena full of the world’s loneliest kids. He was the most human and most alien of rock artists, turning to face the strange, speaking to the freak in everyone. He stared into your twitchy teenage eyes to assure you that you’ve torn your dress and your face is a mess, yet that’s precisely why you’re a juvenile success.”Rolling Stone Magazine 1.11.2016

It’s quite clear after listening to Black Star, that David well knew his days were numbered, yet he kept working, right up until the very end. It was only two nights ago that late night host Jimmy Fallon announced Bowie’s latest album release on his show, displaying the stark enigmatic cover art, which was only a large black star on a white field, the only Bowie album not to display a photo of him.

If you are unfamiliar with Bowie, wading through tribute posts and articles, I’d like to recommend that you read one particular article about him from start to finish, as it says the most about who he really was and how his art was a real embodiment of emotionally distilled moments from his life, which had a huge impact on others, even upon history itself:
