WWIII – The Second Volley

16 Jun

I have been wondering what form the second volley of this world war would take. The first one, of course, was the deliberate release of the Covid-19 virus from the Wuhan lab in China. It appears that the second volley is about to be launched.

Lori Lightfoot, the unhinged Mayor of Chicago, gave it away in a recent interview. As she observes, cities cannot handle the rising crime problem on their own. They need federal help. Of course, not defunding and undermining local police forces might have helped.  

Recall that when Donald Trump was president, the federal government stepping in to help troubled cities was out of the question. Apparently, the Communists needed the right man in position before they called for this.

Wasn’t communism supposed to be dead at the end of the Cold War? What is up with these people? What is the obsession with this bizarre philosophy?

If the federal government under the Biden Administration steps in to solve America’s inevitably growing crime problem, there will soon be jackbooted thugs on the corner of every street. This will include neighborhoods that have no existing crime problem. These thugs will be handpicked by our new military leaders that are busy carefully screening our military to get rid of any patriotic “subversives”. Lloyd Austin, Secretary of Defense since January 22 this year, will make sure the jackbooted thug on your corner is thoroughly loyal to the cause.

Before long, there will be dawn raids on your next door neighbor. If you live in my neighborhood, I will probably be that neighbor. I just write a blog, but that could lead to subversive activity, so I will need to be prevented from this dangerous practice.

WWIII is upon us. We are into the thick of it. God help us all.

Good night, and good luck.

World War Three Was a Masterpiece of Engineering

15 Jun

My last entry was called “World War Three Is Well Underway”. Since I wrote that, I have had an epiphany.

Recently, a robber in San Francisco was filmed brazenly loading up a bag with goods at a Walgreens while he was being filmed by two people, including a security guard. The thing to note about this robber is that he was wearing a bandanna-like mask.

Where have we seen this before?

Of course, it is how robbers are typically depicted in images of the American West.

If it was your mission to bring about the destruction of Western Civilization and replace it with communism, you would, of course, want to increase crime as much as possible. What better way to do it than to make it “normal” to wear a mask everywhere. The robber videoed above was able to walk into a Walgreens with a robber’s bandanna on without raising an eyebrow. Now, he will be difficult to identify. I am, of course, not the first person to make this connection, but it struck me so clearly while viewing the video of the Walgreens robbery.

Note that we are now learning that the mask mandate did not prevent the spread of Covid-19 and probably exacerbated it. Dr. Fauci and his coconspirators were aware of this.

World War Three was not haphazardly planned or executed. It was a masterpiece of engineering. The CCP, the Democrats and every Leftist behind this putsch were and are masters of strategy.

World War Three Is Well Underway

11 Jun

Recently, when Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked if he thought the Covid-19 virus could have originated in the lab at Wuhan, he responded that it is unreasonable to think that the Chinese would deliberately release a virus that would kill their own people.

When I heard this, I assumed he was creating a red herring by deliberately answering the wrong question. However, a colleague pointed out something that eluded me. As she observed, he probably knew in the back of his mind that China had, in fact, released the virus on purpose and he was unconsciously anticipating the wrong question. Why would he know that?

We all know that Chris Wallace of Fox News helped Joe Biden win the 2020 presidential debate. Recently, when someone brought up the issue of getting to the bottom of the origin of the virus, he frantically insisted that we should be concentrating instead on curing the virus. This was after three vaccinations were well on their way to ending the pandemic. Is Chris Wallace not a “hard” news man? Cannot the media walk and chew gum?

There is a pattern to all of this. Every prominent Leftist is behaving like they are deathly afraid of the truth coming out. Are they that worried about people learning that Covid-19 was accidentally released from a lab in a backward foreign country…or do they have a deeper concern?  

We all saw the desperate way the Democrats employed genuinely unscrupulous and illegal means to drive Donald Trump from office. We all saw how the election was stolen. And it was definitely stolen. Just as it is becoming clear that the virus came from the Wuhan lab, it will ultimately become clear that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. There is something these people are deathly afraid of. They are so afraid of it that they are willing to forge documents and rig elections. Whatever they are afraid of, they apparently believed it would come out if Donald Trump remained in power.

If you believed your “side” was in a desperate, even life-or-death, situation, you might declare war. You would know that people, many millions of people, would die…but people die in wars. You would expect there to be causalities in this latest war.

Wars are fought with all sorts of weapons. They are fought with guns, gas, computers, biological agents and lately with cyber attacks. A war could be fought, at least in part, with a deadly virus. If you decided to wage a war by releasing a deadly virus, how would you go about it? You would, of course, have to create a virus that will do more or less what you want it to. This would require that you engineer it in a lab. Once you created your virus, you would be faced with a bigger problem. How do you deploy it? Would you take it to a busy location and open the vial of virus in the manner of Dr. Peters in 12 Monkeys?

If you knew the virus was engineered, you would also know that its genetic makeup would contain telltale signs of engineering. If you took the virus to a high population area and released it, the world would discover that it is a manufactured virus and it would be obvious what you had done.

You would want plausible deniability. Knowing that the world will eventually discover that the virus was manufactured, you would seek some reasonable explanation for how an engineered virus got into the environment. Instead of releasing it at a high population area, you would release it directly from the lab where it was made and behave as if it was an accident. After all, accidentally releasing a virus from a lab is essentially manslaughter, but that is a better charge to endure than the deliberate murder of millions of people. However, you may as well add the extra layer that you believe the virus came from nature.

The CCP and everyone that is involved are probably surprised at how easily they got away with this. They did not expect the West to buy into the lie that an obviously tailor-made virus that started at the exact location of a gain-of-function virology lab had a natural origin. They are probably dumbfounded by the world’s gullibility. That gullibility has bought them time to clean up evidence and reinforce the lie.

You know a tree by the fruit it bears. What did the Covid-19 virus do? It killed mostly old people, it crippled market based economies, and it drove Donald Trump out of office. But that is exactly the outcome China would seek. They have too many old people and they were in economic danger from Donald Trump and his market based economics. They also needed an excuse to crush Hong Kong. The Chinese Communist party does not care one whit about the lives of its own citizens. Just ask the Uyghurs!

The Covid-19 virus also got the marionette Joe Biden into office and created cover for endless mayhem in the streets that has led to, of all things, defunding of United States police forces. I wrote an essay a while back that considered the possibility that Barack Obama is essentially a communist sleeper agent. Is Barack Obama the one pulling Joe Biden’s strings? Are the same people who pulled Barack Obama’s strings pulling both of their strings?

The facts that are emerging and will continue to emerge are dark beyond grasp. China deliberately generated a tailor-made virus and deliberately released it on the world. However, the Democrats and the deep state in the United States were apparently in on it as well. All of them, along with the CCP, just declared war on the Western world…and your life is not worth grass to them. Do you doubt this? Consider that they squelched the use of effective medications like hydroxychloroquine for purely political reasons. They consciously allowed people to die because they thought it would help them win an election.

Most likely, the big tech companies were in on it too. It is difficult to imagine civilized westerners doing something like that, but keep in mind how those people must see the world. To someone “way up there” people “way down here” are ants. Since they are materialists, little people’s lives are worth no more to them than ants. Note that materialists typically support abortion on demand up to the day of birth. And remember: people die in wars.

Why have these people declared war on the West? What is their objective?

It is the same objective that it has been for over 100 years. Critical Race Theory is just Critical Theory with the word race inserted. But even the left-leaning Wikipedia makes it clear what Critical Theory actually is. It is just the same old communism that some enigmatic cabal has been pushing since the beginning of the 20th Century:

In sociology and political philosophy, “Critical Theory” means the Western-Marxist philosophy of the Frankfurt School, developed in Germany in the 1930s and drawing on the ideas of Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_theory

Don’t be fooled by subtle distinctions. Its proponents are not fooled. They regularly describe themselves with phrases like “trained Marxists”.

Ask yourself a simple question. How many of the aforementioned culprits have denounced this insidious movement? How many of them have denounced the genuine violence and destruction it has wrought? How safe do you feel right now? How secure in my person do you believe I feel while writing this?

Not all wars are fought between nations and over property. Wars have been fought between peoples of the same nation. Wars have been fought over religion. Wars have been fought over political ideology. This latest war is akin to an international war of political ideology.

World War Three is well underway, and the first volley was launched from a lab in Wuhan China. The next volley may be on its way, and there is no guessing what form it may take.

God help us all. Good night, and good luck.

The United States Is in Grave Danger

27 May

There is a scene often repeated in war movies where a soldier hears a click underfoot and realizes he has wandered into a mine field and that as soon as he shifts his weight he will be blown to bits. Right now, as of this moment, the United States is in the exact position of that soldier.

The New York Post has uncovered smoking gun evidence that Joe Biden was deeply involved in his son Hunter Biden’s nefarious enterprises in China:

https://nypost.com/2021/05/26/hunter-biden-arranged-secret-dinner-with-business-partners-and-vp-joe

If this was any other country than China, this would only mean that our President is implicated in some shady dealings. However, China is not like other international foes. The Chinese Communist Party has complete control of everything that goes on in China:

https://thediplomat.com/2019/02/the-real-danger-of-chinas-national-intelligence-law/

If Joe Biden is involved in criminal activity in China, it is certain that Chinese leadership is keenly aware of every detail and is prepared to use it to their advantage. From the moment that Joe Biden got involved in criminal practices in China, he was effectively their slave. He has to do exactly what they want or they will rain down ruin on his whole family…probably resulting in all of them, even Dr. Jill, going to prison for life…a prison sentence that is likely to go about as well as that of Jeffrey Epstein.

As of this moment, we know that we have a President of the United States that is completely controlled by a hostile foreign power.

That would be bad enough, but here is where the clicking landmine aspect comes in. We now also know that China is responsible for an international crime that killed 7 million people worldwide and caused 4 trillion dollars in damage:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2021/05/25/timeline-how-wuhan-lab-leak-theory-suddenly-became-credible/

http://www.healthdata.org/news-release/covid-19-has-caused-69-million-deaths-globally-more-double-what-official-reports-show

https://www.statista.com/topics/6139/covid-19-impact-on-the-global-economy/

Every office holder in the United States, including every Democrat senator and every Democrat representative, should demand the immediate resignation of Joe Biden. If Joe Biden will not resign and/or Democrats will not cooperate, Republicans should call for immediate impeachment and refuse to cooperate in any legislation until the Democrats agree.

This is our nation’s great moment on the stage of world history. We must not flinch.

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.

The Dead Universe

31 Mar

This theory is an extrapolation of a theory I had quite some time back that I discussed in an essay called A Plausible Biblical Young Earth Creation Theory. While thinking along those lines, I had an epiphany. What if the thing that causes quantum field collapse is not observation or measurement, but sin? Bear with me for a moment.

When we observe something or measure it, we interact with it in some sense of the word. However, if sin exists and is a kind of nebulous fluid that can move from place to place as Christians suppose, whenever we observe or measure something we also touch it with sin. If this is the case, in a universe where there was no sin, there would be no quantum field collapse. In such a universe, anything would be possible.

Suppose the Garden of Eden had been a place where there was no sin. The only things that would have been “real” would have been things that some outside force, perhaps God, decided were real. Adam and Eve would have lived in a world where literally anything is possible. Predators could have survived without killing and snakes could have talked.

When Adam and Eve sinned, they became a source of a special kind of observation that caused quantum collapse in anything they came into contact with. In a sense, anything they touched, they killed. Suddenly, a universe where anything was possible became a dead universe where only dead mechanical things were possible. Their sin killed the universe in such a way that its living creation by God was replaced by a dead creation that resulted from billions of years of natural history. Even their own bodies became dead mechanical things with only the slightest bit of light, their souls, keeping them from becoming nothing but robots.

Adam and Eve had not been “naked” before because nakedness had not existed before. Nakedness was a mechanical psychological characteristic of a dead mechanical universe with a natural development going back billions of years and not a property of the beautiful garden that God had prepared.

Adam and Even were not exactly driven from the Garden. They could no longer see it. In some sense, the garden is still here today and no one can see it. It is always behind us or on the other side of a wall, but whenever we look, quantum field collapse causes it to disappear. In this same sense, the living universe is also always still around us. It is only dead when and where we observe it.

In this scenario, science and mechanical invention are the processes by which we kill the universe in stages. Whenever we build a bigger telescope or a more powerful microscope, we kill the universe a little further out or a little deeper in. Whenever we build a better engine or computer we make the universe more like a mechanical object. What we consider genius, is actually ingeniously perverse.

In this scenario, to people who read the Bible without faith, it too is dead. People with faith do not see the dead naturalistic reality of the Bible because, for them, that reality is not there. The Bible is God’s truth that has somehow survived quantum field collapse just sufficiently intact so that believers are able to follow the truth it tells, but as a result of quantum field collapse, it is simultaneously a dead piece of literature that seems, to the faithless, to have been composed by charlatans and con men.

Maybe the men in the past who were able to heal by faith were somehow able to draw sin out of people in such a way that quantum field collapse was no longer prevalent, making it possible for their subjects to miraculously heal.

Maybe, when people give themselves to Jesus, the universe killing force that courses through them begins to dissipate through him so that they no longer read a dead Bible nor see a dead world and so that, when their already dead bodies no longer entrap them, they are able to see all the beauty of the garden that is constantly around them.

An idea I have pondered for quite some time is that Adam and Eve might not have been the first physical humans, but merely the first humans that had souls and were conscious. Maybe consciousness spread across the world after they left the garden. With that in mind, the story of the flood, the rainbow, and the tower of Babel could have been phenomena that resulted from the gradual “killing” of reality as sin spread from the original sinners to the rest of the world. If I decide this theory is a good idea, which I presently have decided against, I may expand on those aspects.

Well, it is just a thought. I had to write it down.

Siialand

25 Jan

A while back, I invented a new place. I call it Siialand (pronounced SEE-ya-land). Like many things that have names, the origin of its name tends to be forgotten as it takes on a life of its own. Siialand is a beautiful name that evolved from an ugly realization: the unfreedoming of America. Siialand does not yet exist in the physical sense. I suspect that it soon will.

In the not too distant future, there will be a place where noble, dignified men and women walk among Greco-Roman minimalism and elegance. They will be dressed in attire appropriate for citizens of such lofty purpose. I call this place Siialand. In Siialand, citizens will not have to work. All labor will be done by artificial intelligence and robotics. Citizens of this land will spend their days appreciating finery, creating art, studying science, and contemplating, discussing and pursuing man’s place and purpose in the universe. Citizens of Siialand will be free in a way that no men and women have ever been free before. They will be free of fear.

Siialand will be extraterrestrial. It will be in the Oort cloud or further out among the stars. Possibly, Siialand will be built in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter, exploiting resources from large asteroids, and eventually moved out to the Kuiper belt, the Oort cloud and beyond. It will be immense, but it will also be mobile. Siialand will be in the form of a giant wheel station or possibly something more sophisticated. It will be a world, a nation and an ark.

By the year 2030, it will be possible to build a robotic system that is capable of mining asteroids and manufacturing the materials into more robotic systems. When this technology is available, these systems will be sent to the asteroid belt, possibly Ceres, and set to work. The first thing they will do is manufacture an army of robots. Since their increase will be exponential, they will quickly produce enough robots to begin work on a giant wheel station in earnest. With such a large work force, the task will be completed quickly. It can be shown that if these robotic systems self-replicated at a rate of once per month, within seven years the entire solar system, including the sun, would be robotic systems. Their actual task will be far more limited.

As work is completed on the station, the robotic systems will manufacture transports that will head for earth to pick up occupants for Siialand. These transports will be accompanied by rockets similar in many ways to the largest rockets being contemplated by Elon Musk and SpaceX. Possibly, these accompanying rockets will be direct descendents of the SpaceX rockets. However, unlike Elon’s rockets, they will be built in space from materials in space. They will pick up occupants at a rate of 1000 at a time and take them to space where they will transfer to the more comfortable transports and go on to Siialand.

A quick calculation shows that if these rockets landed and launched every hour from 200 airports around the world, they could evacuate the entire population of earth in 4 years. However, there will be no need to be in such a hurry because only a minority of people will be interested in leaving for space and those who are interested may not yet be ready to leave.

Prospective citizens of Siialand will be those who have been dispossessed by contemporary “wokeness” and critical race theory. They will be people who want to live normal, natural moral and ethical lives uninterrupted by the division and exploitation disguised as progressive political correctness that has overtaken the world. They will be interested in improving themselves and their lot rather than imposing heterodox norms on others.

When those who are recruited to live in Siialand arrive, they will find a vast natural landscape dotted with habitats, temples, arenas and other structures. Siialand will be beautiful and clean. It will inspire lofty thoughts. It will be impossible to enter Siialand without a sense of profound purpose. However, this will be only the superficial appearance of Siialand. It will also have a vast system of artificial intelligence that allows occupants to simulate and directly experience any reality they like. On the surface, Siialand will be kept elegant and austere because anyone who wants to experience something more intriguing or lascivious will be able to do so at any time in VR.

Siialand will be a republic. It will have a constitution and accompanying laws and regulations based on a perfected understanding of the laws and regulations of all the republics that have come before, including the United States. As the United States once was, Siialand will be a nation under God. However, it will not be a theology. Its citizens will be enlightened people who grasp that the universe is not the simple mechanistic structure that some thoughtless scientists and their sycophants have proclaimed it to be. The economics of Siialand will be capitalistic, but this system will never become oppressive or divisive because in Siialand there will never be any need or want. People will trade in luxuries and accessories. Every genuine need will easily be met. Siialanders will be generous and egalitarian to a fault, and this behavior will tend to overshadow their capitalistic economic base.

In Siialand, no one will grow old or die of senescence related illnesses. When Siialand is created, the technology will exist to replace any organ in the human body and ultimately replace an entire body. It will be possible to clean up and restore brains so that they are also like new. The brain is not the soul, but it appears to be the physical nexus of the soul, so restoring it, rather than replacing it, may be essential.

Citizens of Siialand will be called Siialanders.

Siialanders will retain their humanity. They will be surrounded by artificial intelligence that is able to do miraculous things, but they will never merge with artificial intelligence or artificially modify their own intelligence. They may effectively enhance their intelligence by syncing with synthetic intelligence in ways that do not significantly alter their psychological makeup. Significantly altering one’s psychological makeup with technology would be dangerous in the same way that using drugs is dangerous. When a person alters their psychological makeup, either through technological or chemical means, they risk altering the way they perceive reality and therefore they risk losing track of their original motivations. As a result, they may welcome other alterations that effectively erase their original motivations. In this way, they may drift from their human moorings until they become something that can only be regarded as a “monster”. Indeed, many drug addicts become monsters that are completely unrecognizable to their peers. I may discuss this topic in detail in other essays.

Siialanders will be male and female. This will come about through enlightenment rather than coercion. They will not want to subject their children to unnecessary strife, so they will monitor their morphology in utero to ensure that they are delivered as healthy, well defined males and females with associated erotic compasses. This is a complex topic that I may delve into in detail in another essay. For now, I will just point out a couple of things. It is probably rare for a black couple, a white couple, an Asian couple or a couple of any other genetic makeup designated as a race to want to have a baby that is not of their own race. (Mixed race couples have obviously dispensed with this concern.) Moreover, guarding against a particular race, especially when the couple is of that race, is tantamount to genocide. It is probably equally rare for a heterosexual couple of any race to hope for a homosexual child, and a homosexual child is typically not like either the mother or the father. As I explained, guarding gender orientation will come about through enlightenment rather than coercion. No couple will be kept from having a homosexual child. However, they will be aware that if they do so, they will be consciously creating a child that has little chance of finding a romantic partner and is destined to be miserable. Gender dysphoric children are amenable to the same analysis. Nevertheless, in Siialand any sexual urge will easily be accommodated through virtual means. Everything from macrophilia to necrophilia will be accommodated in virtual space. What people do in virtual environments will be regarded in the same vein as what they do in their dreams.

Siialanders will have beauty that emanates from perfect health. They will not “sculpt” their bodies because no one will be concerned with superficial appearance. They will consider it more important to be recognizable than to conform to any morphological ideal.

Eroticism will play a nominal role in the public life of Siialanders. They will satisfy all their lascivious urges in virtual environments so that they are easily able to keep associated behavior out of the public arena. To a Siialander, public displays of eroticism will not seem inappropriate but merely silly: “Why would one make something like that physical when it can be done infinitely better in VR?” Siialanders will keep their sex lives private.

For a Siialander, choosing a mate will be driven more by practicality than ardency. No human will have erotic characteristics that can match anything in VR, so there will be much less of an urge to have “sex” with another physical individual. Nevertheless, new citizens will be the product of the joining of a natural male sperm and a natural female egg. This may come about through artificial insemination and incubation, but not in any way that will distort a child’s natural morphology and development. Every effort will be made to ensure that children are normal in every respect, including that they have normal sexual urges. 

Siialanders will be curious. They will be explorers. They will investigate science, mathematics and philosophy with great interest. They will never be conquerors or exploiters. In all things, they will exercise restraint. They will live in harmony with nature.

Siialanders will give little thought to race. They will consider old concerns about the precise color of one’s skin or one’s precise ancestry interesting from a naturalistic standpoint, but not important socially or politically. Any person will be able to acquire any racial characteristics by technological means but altering one’s appearance in this way will be considered unhealthy.

Siialanders will prize their individuality, but they will not strive to be exceptional. Any urge to stand above others will be considered aberrant. This does not prohibit the possibility of being exceptional, but celebrity will be considered more of a responsibility than a blessing. Bear in mind that any person will be able to acquire fabulous intelligence, beauty, strength or courage through technological means but that doing so will be considered harmful to oneself and the community.

Siialanders will be educated in the civics of the community they inhabit from an early age so that they understand why things are done as they are done in Siialand.

Siialand will be beautiful. It will not be perfect because perfection is reserved for God.

See ya in Siialand!

Why Did God Send Us Donald Trump

20 Jan

Anyone with common sense realizes that Donald Trump was one of the greatest presidents in US history. Admittedly, he behaved terribly at times, but that was just his modus operandi. Those close to him knew that he was a warm and genuine person. He was obviously a terrific father, as witnessed by the character of his children. Donald Trump’s accomplishements are detailed here:

Promises Made, Promises Kept

When Donald Trump was a candidate, I thought he was fooling us. His behavior was so erratic and inexplicable at times that I was sure he was actually working to get Hillary Clinton elected. It seemed like every time he got ahead in the polls, he would say or do something that would set him behind again. By some miracle, he was elected president.

Right away Donald Trump set to work. The things he did defied expectations and, in some cases, defied belief. It seemed like everything he touched turned to gold. And that gold was our gold. Donald Trump touched things, they turned to gold, and all Americans benefitted from their splendor.

Donald Trump seemed destined to be reelected, and if not for the Covid-19 pandemic, he would have been reelected in a clear landslide. It appears that he actually was reelected, but that is a topic for another time and another discussion.

When the pandemic came along, the people controlling Joe Biden played it for everything it was worth, and they played it from the bottom of the deck. Through Joe Biden, they claimed that Donald Trump “mismanaged” the pandemic and that his mismanagement somehow resulted in the thousands of deaths that occurred. This was, of course, a ridiculous argument, and actually harmed our recovery efforts, but for some reason many Americans believed it.

Somehow Joe Biden obtained the presidency. He entered the White House, and Donald Trump went out with a bang. As a parting gift, Donald Trump left us with a vaccination for Covid-19 that was ready years before experts thought possible.

All of that is history now. The real mystery to me is this. We had a magnificent leader that raised the United States up and, with the exception of a virus that no one in the United States could have predicted or controlled, left it in a much better place. Yet, we so quickly parted with him.  While Donald Trump was president, those of us who were not blinded by irrational hatred for his methodology, saw him as a gift from God. As I observed, everything he touched seemed to turn to gold. Yet, somehow, Americans foolishly disposed of him and shoehorned in the comic book car salesman and corporate pawn Joe Biden. Why did that happen? Is God punishing us or is there some larger plan?

If you ask any genuine Christian why God gave us the Law of Moses, they will explain it essentially like this. He gave it to us so that we would realize that man is incapable of following the law. The purpose of the law was that we be prepared, upon the arrival of Jesus, to grasp that our only hope for salvation is to somehow escape the law. Of course, the means of escape offered by Jesus was salvation through his sacrifice. I have issues with this interpretation, but as an analogue for our contemporary situation, it will suffice. God did not send us Donald Trump to improve our lot. In that sense, Donald Trump was like the Law of Moses. God sent Donald Trump to show that, in our current political and economic environment, real improvement is impossible. He sent him, in essence, to show us that the only way forward is out. God did not send Donald Trump to fix our nation’s engine. He sent Donald Trump to show us that it is time to sell the car. Americans are not in a position to benefit from a genuine tough leader who can lead us out of the quagmire of crony capitalism, internal corruption and moral decay that has beset our nation. However, we had to witness Donald Trump’s struggle against that morass before we could see the truth.

Moses Receives the Law

Donald Trump was also a temporary shield blocking the dark cloud descending on civilization. As long as he was in office that cloud remained at sea. With him gone, it is moving ashore as assuredly as the Wuhan flu. Probably, all of us have anecdotes of the destructive force known as “wokeness”. For me that force descended this week in a new imperative from the school I work for. They are compelling me to “disaggregate” students by race, ethnicity and gender. In other words, they want me to start segregating students and treating them differently according to their superficial appearance. “Disaggregate” is a synonym for “separate”, and a near synonym for “discriminate” but the people compelling me to do this did not have the courage of their convictions to use the more common and clearly understood term. Imagine someone in the eighties telling us to “discriminate” between students based on their race, ethnicity and gender. If Martin Luther King Jr. had still been alive, he would have been appalled. I have been wondering when this social disease would land on my doorstep. That day has arrived. For others, that force may have arrived as an imperative that they stop recognizing natural gender or stop honoring hard work. Perhaps it has arrived as an imperative to suppress “incorrect” ideas. This dark cloud manifests in innumerable ways. All of us with natural ethics and values can perceive it; but that also is a discussion for another day.

With Donald Trump out of office, people with sensible political, economic and social views are in danger. The impeachment we saw on January 13 was not an impeachment of Donald Trump. He was just the effigy. It was an impeachment of the American majority who supported him and voted for him. It was a signal from Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her ilk that they are coming for us and we had better swear allegiance to the Devil if we want a place at the new table they are setting. These Leftists are speaking in earnest of deprogramming measures and reeducation camps. We will be safe for a while if we pretend to go along, but we cannot stay here indefinitely. If our days are not numbered, the days of our beliefs and values definitely are.

We are the latest instance of the Pilgrims that set out from Plymouth Devon for what would eventually be called Plymouth Massachusetts. Like the Pilgrims and other immigrants who left Europe for the Americas, we must become visionaries. We must leave for new worlds. You will soon grasp that I mean this quite literally.

If you are like me, you grew up celebrating the Fourth of July and hearing songs about our marines fighting our nation’s battles in air, on land and at sea. You probably feel pangs of guilt at the mere thought of leaving old Uncle Sam behind. However, if you are like me, you are probably awakening to a sad reality. Uncle Sam had a long illustrious life. We honored him, we respected him, and we cared for him in his old age. But Uncle Sam has passed away. He is not with us any more. The best thing we can do for him now is respect his memory, move on and carry the lessons we learned from him forward. I explained my position on this in detail in my last essay:

I Have Begun to Self-Identify as an Illegal Alien

It is time for modern visionaries to head to space. The technology to colonize space does not appear to be ready, but there are strong indications that it will be ready sooner than most people expect. I honestly believe that the technology to start setting up substantial independent colonies in space will be available by 2030. I have explained that technology and how it will be exploited in previous essays:

Colonizing Space

In a discussion with a friend and colleague, she pointed out a hard reality of the Pilgrims who came to America. The nation they helped to create was a tremendous experiment, but after 244 years that experiment has failed. However, that is only part of the picture. Most of us have heard of “the shot heard round the world”. That was the first shot of the American Revolutionary War, and it is was probably a large component of other revolutions that followed in France and other nations, leading to the modern democratic state. The Pilgrims and other immigrants came to America and they created a new kind of nation, the word got back to Europe, and soon the whole world was a much better place to live in. The modern world may not be perfect, but it is far better than medieval Europe. We stumble, but we keep moving forward.

We will build colonies in space, and we will build them upon the morality we cherish and the economic lessons we have learned. Those colonies will lead to new nations, and those nations will be beacons of change for the earth and the whole solar system.

Of course, no one can overlook the reality that the American Civil War was a bloody affair and it would be unfortunate to go through that kind of experience to make a better life. However, it need not necessarily be the case that the kind of separation I envision will come about only through violence. First of all, international law already makes it difficult for any nation to stake claims in space. If a group of people mined an asteroid and built a giant wheel station and they did not wish to live under the dominion of any particular nation, it would be difficult for any nation to lay claim. Also, the capital for these colonies will probably come from private investors, which will naturally limit the legal claims that any terrestrial nation can make. Finally, it appears that modern civilization is sufficiently reticent about making such claims, especially in light of its own history, to allow a colony that wishes to operate independently to do so. I strongly suspect that a colony in space will be regarded somewhat like a colony built at sea. Governments will inevitably influence them, but they are unlikely to directly interfere.

The colony I envision will have a constitution like extant republics, however it will start from scratch and learn from the lessons taken from those republics. It will realize that political offices must have limited terms and political donations must be limited. The constitution of the United States was written by a collection of geniuses, but they did not have a working model to draw from. We have seen a republic in action for nearly 250 years and we have learned what works and what does not. We have 250 years of data regarding what can happen with a republic, and we should be able to construct a relatively simple document that takes all that knowledge into account. This time, there will not be so many surprises.

Of course, there will still be some surprises, but that is how the story continues. Fortunately, in space, there is infinite room for expansion. Since we are unlikely to encounter intelligent life, or really any life at all, we will not have to worry about displacing native populations. Also, it appears that there are natural boundaries of time and space that will keep extraterrestrial civilizations from interfering with each other in the foreseeable future. If a space colony managed to make its way to the nearest star, the transport time between it and old earth is likely to be decades, if not centuries.

It is time for those of us who realize there is no place for integrity in the aging Americas to set sail for the stars. Our progress may seem slow at first, but it will pick up at a surprising rate. Probably, this was the plan all along. God knew that men must colonize space and he knew that he would have to light a fire under our butts to get us out there. For that reason, he mired us in decadence and corruption. For that reason he sent us Donald Trump and worked through him to show us that we have to leave. Our mandate from heaven is clear. It is time to prepare our minds for loftier goals.
