“The tendency towards psychological collectivism does not have man’s welfare as its end. It is designed for his exploitation.” – Jacques Ellul
As you surely know by now, your online behavior, from banking to shopping, to searching for anything including health and financial information, even your cell phone usage is, “…fed into databases and assembled into profiles of unprecedented depth and specificity.” [Pasquale]
This information is then sold to companies you know nothing about and used to market to you, to evaluate your potential to get a job, a mortgage, a loan, a rental, and many other dreams you may have that could be denied to you because of collected data you know nothing about.
There is no such thing as a ‘free’ App — all Apps are Trojan Horses. We now live in the Internet, the algo-matrix… like it or not, and the tyranny of massive data collection is upon us.
Now is the time for us to rethink our euphoria with technology.
As law professor and author Frank Pasquale notes, Silicon Valley’s top managers are not great sages to be trusted— in fact, they “hide behind corporate operations so covert that their actual contributions are hard to assess… why all the secrecy?” His book, The Black Box Society, The Secret Algorithms That Control Money and Information, asks why secrecy is so important in the ‘black box’ takeover of society.
Perhaps the most egregious example of this is in the area of finance. Algorithms have expanded exponentially into every aspect of banking, bonds and stock markets, with ever increasing mazes of derivatives, collateralized debt obligations, CDO’s, now in the trillions of dollars. Humans no longer trade in global markets, as algorithms move stocks, commodities, and currencies around the planet in seconds. HFT, high frequency trading, is a ubiquitous form of high-tech front-running. Actual people don’t stand a chance.
A ‘flash-crash’ can take markets down a thousand points in a few seconds. Bots, mysteriously called ‘dark pools,’ are “artificially intelligent systems that execute trades in milliseconds and use the cover of darkness to outmaneuver their creators, ultimately hijacking the global markets from human control and pushing the entire system toward a global meltdown that could happen in seconds.” [S. Patterson]
The Greed Algorithm
The algorithms are constantly being refined and expanded to further invade every aspect of our lives, therefore, there can be no ‘transparency,’ as regulators struggle to even understand an ever-changing field created by minds digitally oriented and advanced far-beyond most. The private companies and corporations pay these digital geniuses far more money than possible for the government agencies that are supposed to protect the public, luring the best minds away from the regulatory sector with hugely obscene salaries.
The innovators run the game and everyone else, including regulators, are clueless, in the dark, and vulnerable. As Pasquale says, “Secret algorithms — obscured by a triple layer of technical complexity, secrecy, and ‘economic espionage’ laws that can land would-be whistle-blowers in prison — still prevent us from understanding what is truly going on in many major financial firms.”
The ET Connection
The rapid rise and implementation of technology like this for largely evil ends doesn’t add up unless you broaden your perspective a bit.
The Hopi Indians have told the story of how more evolved Extra-Terrestrials, ET’s, once offered earth governments technology that could clean up the planet and help us advance into a partnership with the rest of the galaxy, the Confederation, or the Galactic Federation. In return, we would have to give up nuclear weapons, nuclear energy, and all nuclear research. Our military, afraid of the ET’s, turned them down.
Then, the story goes, that another group of ET’s approached earth governments with offers of more advanced technologies – without the request that we give up our pursuit of nuclear anything. In return, alien abductions of humans for their hybridization programs were allowed.
When you bring Extra Terrestrials, ET’s, into the picture, the present situation makes more sense. After Hiroshima, ET’s began showing up more frequently, especially in the USA. Out-of-control radiation is considered by ET’s to be unacceptably perilous to all life, and they were intervening so that the humans would not irrevocably damage their planet, the solar system, or beyond.
These less evolved ET’s began to give world governments technologies within certain limits and planet earth went from an industrial era with machines and assembly lines, to silicon chips, fiber optics, computers, Apps, robotics, drones, artificial intelligence, AI, and we know not what else, all in the span of a single lifetime.
The advances in technology since the 1940’s are beyond exponential. They are flat out unbelievable. How long did it take us to invent the wheel? How, then, could we achieve all of this in such a short time frame?
What They’re Hiding… The Breakaway Civilization
The people who have access to secret technology are way ahead of the rest of us. They are the ‘Breakaway Civilization,’ and “secret algorithms — obscured by a triple layer of technical complexity, secrecy, and ‘economic espionage’ laws that can land would-be whistle-blowers in prison still prevent us from understanding.” [Pasquale]
We have little to no comprehension of the veiled, secretive world we are now forced to inhabit. The people with ‘access’ are the owners, controllers and financiers behind these technologies that emerged out of the ET ‘deal,’ and they have become obsessed with their own power. Pasquale reports CEO Eric Schmidt of Google saying he wants Google users the be able to ask it, ‘What shall I do tomorrow?,’ and ‘What job shall I take?’ This is beyond creepy and moving into the domain of a totalitarian invasion of the human heart and psyche.
“What concerns me is when these projects go ‘beyond black’; people with ulterior motives that have gotten in control of these projects and/or the funding for them, and/or the ability of what is really scary, to write unlimited checks with no recourse to anybody…it becomes evident that they have agendas that are independent of the United States. And the attitude is seemingly one of control — power and control.” – Former U.S. Air Force computer operations and programming specialist, William J. Pawelec. [T. Good, EARTH an Alien Enterprise, The Shocking Truth Behind the Greatest Cover-up in Human History]
The power to obfuscate these technologies, to use them for individual profit, to manipulate people, markets, global finance – this kind of power has never been seen on our planet in written history, some 6000+ years. This extreme power has made the elite insane with greed. Only insane men and woman would destroy the middle class, a necessity for a successful democracy and culture, and initiate the largest transference of wealth in history, confiscating 90% of the wealth of the planet for themselves, the 1%.
They are building a technological Superclass, “…an international upper class of people whose economic interests had more in common with each other than with the majority of people who share their nationality. [D. Rothkopf]” Nation states are finished. It’s a global corporate state in their eyes.
The men and women who wield the power of these secret technologies are now taking over the planet under the guise of what is called ‘globalization,’ which is supposed to benefit mankind. However, globalization “undercuts many national and local power structures and cultural concepts that have foundations deep in the bedrock of human civilization, namely the notion of sovereignty.” [D. Rothkopf]
Take the Trans Pacific Partnership, the TPP, as proof. No one is allowed to read this trade agreement, which shouldn’t even be called a ‘trade’ agreement, because the TPP is “a corporate/investor rights agreement… that extends patents, copyrights and other monopolies so investors can collect ‘rents’ (and) elevates corporations and corporate profits above the level of government.” [Common Dreams] You can be sued for breaking corporate laws you know nothing about.
We are watching our lives and the future being turned over to a global technological corporate authoritarian empire that secretly tracks us every second of the day in vast databases stored around the planet – our home planet – that is being polluted and poisoned as global corporations suck its resources dry. Our techno-overlords have seduced us into a hypnotic complacency, and we are spinning out our own spiders web that entangles our consciousness, awareness and intelligence… a stealth ‘net’ that enslaves us to an invisible elite.
The bizarre level of control that has emerged, was nearly impossible to foresee even just 20 years ago.
What Can We Do? The Key to Liberation
There are many brave men and women speaking out, working to expose the tsunami of multiple layers of lies, propaganda, grand illusions and fraudulent delusions that we are being force fed.
Frankly, though, it is difficult to envision a way to win, to overwhelm them with any known human force, so, we turn to the ideas of Enlightenment and Liberation that are found in ancient wisdom. From the Sanskrit Upanishads:
Even the gods [any other dimensional beings] cannot prevent his becoming this, for he has become their Self. …if a man worships another deity thinking: He is one and I am another, he does not know.
He [who does not know] is like a sacrificial animal to the gods. As many animals serve a man, so does each man serve the gods. Even if one animal is taken away, it causes anguish to the owner; how much more so when many are taken away!
Therefore it is not pleasing to the gods that men should know this [that they are the One].
– Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, I.iv.10
The wisdom in these lines holds the Key.
What happens metaphysically when you bow-down to worship any ‘other’ is that you in fact give whatever you worship, in the external illusory hologram, your energy. You might say you give them ‘permission’ to take your energy and will. Whoever worships another – meaning any other being on this earth, or any being from the myriad denizens of the Invisible Realms, the gods, angels, or ET’s – his energy becomes ‘sacrificial’ food for that entity. They are indeed giving their own power away to another.
Our entry into the rest of the universe, the end of Earth’s so-called ‘quarantine’ and centuries of the miserable rule of tyrants lay in our realization of the Oneness of All and of our inter-connectedness with the Woven Universe. As more of us begin to understand that everything and everyone, every man, woman & child, and every being in the universe is God, we increase our chances of being able to shake off these insane greedy tyrants, like the fleas that they are, without firing a shot.
The revolution has to take place within each of us as a change in our consciousness. The Truth does set you free.
