The Plan

18 Apr

It is beginning to be clear that Leftists in the United States have a very different idea about our nation’s future than traditional Americans have. It is also beginning to be clear that they have a definite plan. We can only hope to counter their activities if we are clear about what they are attempting to accomplish and how they intend to accomplish it.

What we are seeing in the United States today is nothing short of the classic “crime so terrible that no one believes it is happening”. First of all, Leftists and Democrats in the United States have become indistinguishable. Leftist have completely taken over the Democrat party and bent it to their will. The now completely infiltrated Leftist-Democrats have a clear plan. Their plan is to simultaneously pack the Supreme Court with Leftist justices while they pass an unconstitutional national election law that will make it easy for them to steal the next election. They know that if they do the latter, the Republicans will take it to the Supreme Court to get it overturned. However, they are doing the former, packing the Supreme Court, to ensure that they win the case. After that, they intend to secure their power and dominate the United States indefinitely.

Nancy Pelosi will not immediately Bring Jerry Nadler’s Supreme Court packing bill to the floor. However, this is part of an obvious strategy. She wants to wait for Joe Biden’s slanted commission to finish “studying” the Supreme Court and come back with the recommendation that four more justices need to be added. My guess is that the commission will recommend that in order to be “fair” the court needs a gay male, a transsexual, a Native American, and a black woman. In the meantime, the Democrats and the Leftist media will be softening Americans up to the idea of adding justices. They will say things like, “The notion that we should have nine justices is a racist, sexist carryover from the 19th century.” 

When the Biden Supreme Court commission comes back with the recommendation that the court be packed, Joe Biden will declare that in order to be “fair” he is going to do exactly what the commission recommends. Then, Nancy Pelosi will take up the Nadler bill.

Republicans will try to filibuster the bill, but Democrats will call them racist, sexist and homophobic. The Leftist media will pile on. Democrats will use their accusations as an excuse to override the filibuster rule and add four reliably Leftist radical justices to the Supreme Court. They will simultaneously pass their new national voting law.

Republicans will challenge this unconstitutional new voting law in the Supreme Court, but the newly packed Leftist court will uphold it.  

The new Democrat sponsored voting law will make it easy for undocumented immigrants to vote in future elections. It will do this by prohibiting anyone from verifying the identity of any voter. Not coincidentally, the Democrats have been importing undocumented immigrants in record numbers. The Democrats will signal to undocumented immigrants that they can and should vote, and the immigrants will do so. The Democrats will undoubtedly even make it easy for them to vote by going around to them and forcefully harvesting their votes. Undocumented immigrants want, more than anything, to become citizens. They believe the Democrats will ultimately grant them citizenship, so they will eagerly vote for Democrats in the 2022 midterm election.

As a result of the 2022 midterm victories, Democrats will secure super majorities in the House and Senate. With the extra power of having super majorities in both houses, the Democrats will pass more laws ensuring that they can never again lose an election.

Voila! Suddenly, it becomes guaranteed that the Leftist-Democrats have complete power from now on.

Then, the Democrats will begin to remake the United States from a sovereign nation into something akin to the “North American Territory”, now subordinate to some yet unimagined communist new world order.

The plan is that simple. It is so malevolent and un-American that it is almost impossible to believe that it is taking place. Yet, clearly it is, and history will bear it out.

How did we get here? How did we elect leaders this dishonest and corrupt? I have described in the past how ridiculous Joe Biden is. There is good reason to believe that he is an actual “Manchurian candidate”. While Americans can only speculate about Joe’s dealings with China, the Chinese leadership knows exactly what he has been up to and they are ready to destroy him and his family if he dares resist their directives.  Kamala Harris is possibly the most two-faced power-craving reptile that has ever worked her way up the political ladder. She makes Anna from the 2009 television series V seem utterly humane.  She will do literally anything to see her name in lights.

Why do Democrats hate the United States? Have they been so thoroughly corrupted by our education system that they no longer believe in old fashioned ideas like patriotism and sovereign nations?

Is there anything we can do now but watch and marvel at the decline of the greatest nation in the history of the world? Have Americans finally proved that democracy simply cannot work? 

Oh well…this needed to be stated. I have done so. God help us all!

Bound for Glory

17 Apr

Like many people who contemplate the future of humanity and the universe, I tend to think of consciousness (the discernible manifestation of the soul) as just being along for the ride. However, when I take into account what consciousness must be and what it must be capable of, I realize that is a mistake.

When cosmologists imagine the future of our universe, they tend to make their projections without any consideration of anthropomorphic input. In other words, they imagine its evolution taking place while humans are merely along for the ride. Some recent futurists, of which Ray Kurzweil is a prime example, have begun to recognize that humans may have an influence on how the universe evolves. This is not an unreasonable idea. Earth scientists have begun to recognize that the evolution of the earth must now take into account the influence of humans, and they have even coined the term “Anthropocene”. Futurists, who are beginning to include the influence of humans on the evolution of the universe, recognize that humans may find ways to overcome some apparent physical laws and begin to restructure the universe in ways that are to their own liking. Some have introduced the idea of the universe being transformed into “computronium” and becoming one giant computer.

Similar to how scientists have tended to imagine humans being in a completely passive role when contemplating the future of the universe, I have long tended to imagine human consciousness as being in a passive role. I have come to realize that may be a mistake.

In past essays, I proposed theories for what consciousness may be and how it may work. What I have described, in essence, is an extra-physical phenomenon that traces the path of the universe and selects its course by choosing from a menu of possible variations that result from quantum events:

Consciousness, A Simple Model

However, this is only one interpretation of the phenomenon. Another interpretation is that consciousness is somehow able to influence the outcome of wave-function collapse. Whichever interpretation is closer to the truth, the result is essentially the same. Consciousness gives the appearance of being able to change the outcome of physical events.

It appears that consciousness is able to do this only in a limited way in a limited region of our brains. In this way, it appears to be able to influence our decision processes and direct our thinking. However, what if this ability to influence the immediate environment of our brain was somehow expanded? What if consciousness was able to influence a larger region of our brain and ultimately regions of space beyond our brain?

It is not clear what sort of change to our physiology might result in this kind of amplification of consciousness, but I strongly suspect that two changes may result in this. The first is that we are able to increase our natural intelligence. The second is that we are able to live much longer lives. A question I have raised in other essays is why God would have created the universe so that we are able to develop technology. The answer I arrived at was that doing so made it possible for us to fulfill his promise of creating a better place for us to live. This place is typically referred to as “heaven”. Like I argued, it made no sense for God to create a universe that would eventually accommodate technology, especially so much technology and such advanced technology, if his intention was to peanut butter over it and implement heaven himself:

Where We Are Headed

It seems inevitable that human technology will play a role in creating heaven. However, how will this occur?

It appears that physical laws will prohibit humans from travelling to the furthest regions of the universe. Already, parts of the universe are expanding away faster than the speed of light and it appears that it will always be impossible for any physical object to exceed the speed of light. If humans cannot “get out there” and change things, they will not be able to “rein the universe in” and transform it into heaven. The universe will eventually expand into nothing and die a slow heat death. However, consciousness (the soul) appears to not be restricted by the physical laws of the universe. It is apparently capable of overcoming Bell’s theorem and influencing the outcome of quantum events. It also appears to be capable of instantaneously spanning space and time.

So , we have two characteristics of the universe that have to be considered together if we are to anticipate the “plan” to create heaven. Technology is apparently essential, but the only aspect of the universe that could possibly rein the universe in to create heaven is some kind of super consciousness. This suggests that technology must play a role in ultimately amplifying consciousness.

How can technology be exploited to amplify consciousness?

It seems unlikely that technology will be able to directly amplify consciousness, but it is not unreasonable that it may create an environment where consciousness can expand on its own. The only ways that seem available for it to do this are for it to make human brains that survive longer and are able to consider bigger ideas. If brains are more powerful, it seems that conscious may ultimately expand into them and find new powers. However, the evidence from living experience is that if consciousness is capable of expanding, it is capable of doing this only very slowly. Therefore the expansion must take quite a bit of time. I am guessing something on the order of thousands of years, if not millions of years. This means that we must find technological ways to expand our brains and keep our brains, along with our bodies, alive for thousands or millions of years.

What I am suggesting is that we will ultimately find ways to keep our brains youthful and growing in the sense that they grow in the early stages of life for a much longer period of time than is currently the case. One may ask why this has not happened naturally, but there are definite constraints imposed by the processes that have brought human life about. Evolution can do only so much and it has a somewhat limited agenda. Evolution only acts to propagate the species and ensure its survival. It is mostly interested in reproduction rates and the overall survival of the species. Long lives serve no purpose in its overall plan. Also, the path by which humans have evolved has greatly limited the kinds of people that can be born. A woman’s narrow birth canal and the requirements of rearing children are both very limiting.

With technological advancements, it will be possible to extend what evolution has accomplished. It will be possible to give humans longer lives and artificially cause their brains to continue to grow. It will be possible to erase the effects of senescence and make people’s brains youthful and resilient again.

I tend to doubt that completely artificial augmentations like Elon Musk’s Neuralink will ultimately be the way forward. For a variety of reasons, I strongly suspect that consciousness cannot expand into such completely artificial machinery. Somehow, it must be possible to assist the growth of our natural brains so that more work is being done by real neurons. This may require that humans have somewhat larger heads. I suspect that the necessary expansion of cranial size will not seem particularly significant from a morphological point of view. The result will not be humans that look particularly odd. Probably, no one will be able to distinguish a person with a braincase that is, say, 20% larger. When the volume of an object is increased by this amount, its profile does not greatly change. However, if the expansion takes place only in the regions that are amenable to consciousness, a 20% increase in overall brain size should result in humans that have fantastically powerful consciousnesses.

Such people should be able to influence the behavior of materials outside of their brains. In doing so, their consciousness may be able to “occupy” to some extent objects beyond their brains. People with considerable experience may be able to leave their bodies entirely and move about the universe without needing any kind of humanoid body at all. Ultimately, they may be able to move through the matter and energy of the universe as pure spirit. They may be able to do this at superluminal speeds and reach the furthest corners of the universe. In the process, they may learn to expand further and gain further control of matter and space until they are able to reorganize the universe at its most fundamental level. They may be able to restructure the universe so that it no longer expands (or contracts) in an uncontrolled manner.

In this way, humans will create a universe that is perfectly suited to incorporeal beings that increasingly are not limited by any physical constraints.

Such beings will be able to detect souls that have passed on so that those souls can be reattached to the physical universe and grow along with the souls that have pioneered this new manner of existence. They will bring back every human, dog, mouse, worm or microbe that has lived before and give them the opportunity to grow and expand into their full potential.

Together, these purely spiritual beings may reach out to parallel universes that may be inhospitable to corporeal beings. They may find vast endless dimensions of possibilities to explore and reshape. They may explore spaces, not only of the physical, but of the emotional and sensual. I suspect that God has prepared quite a playground for the purely spiritual beings of the future to explore. This playground is undoubtedly more diverse and dynamic than any contemporary person is capable of grasping.

We will learn that Christmas, ostensibly the celebration of the winter solstice and the return of spring or the birth of a savior god, is actually the celebration of humanity coming out of the dark and entering the light of the vast and inexhaustible universe God has prepared for us.

Humans will never touch God. That, alas, is beyond even a purely spiritual being. But they will be increasingly certain of God’s existence. They will grasp that the nature of the universe they are expanding into is not an accident. It is rapidly becoming evident that the universe we inhabit could not be an accident, but the purely spiritual beings we will become will have no doubt of this.

We will experience the deep emotional bliss of the Christmas season with reverence and sincerity that no child looking into the light’s of a Christmas tree or the moon over new fallen snow has ever dreamt of. It will be glorious.

The Ultimate Abusive Relationship

2 Apr

Suppose you had a female friend that told you she is in a relationship. She tells you that the man she is in a relationship with promises her heaven. He has not given her anything yet, but he promises that he eventually will. However, he also expects her to give him money…lots of money. Moreover, he constantly reminds her that if she ever even thinks about breaking up with him, she will suffer a terrible fate. What would you say to that friend? 

Sadly, what I have just described is Christianity. Adherents to this faith describe it as a relationship with the man Jesus. They are literally promised heaven. They typically tithe 10% of their income to their church. They are constantly reminded that if they cease to believe they will go to Hell…literal Hell…where they will suffer everlasting torment…where they will burn forever in a fire that is never quenched.

I sometimes wonder why I am so resistant to becoming a traditional Christian. However, when I am truly honest with myself, I know the reason. I know that I would be entering into an almost inescapable psychological trap. I have been in abusive relationships and I am not about to walk into another one. I am certainly not going to walk into the ultimate one.
