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.

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:

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:

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:

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.


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.

I Have Begun to Self-Identify as an Illegal Alien

7 Jan

 Where oh where were you last night?
Where is the flag we looked for at dawn? 
We had a bold leader reviving our glory; 
You left for Biden and Phht! it was gawn.

During his tenure in office, Donald Trump did everything he said he would do and more. He made the United States energy independent. He cleared out ISIS. He brought our manufacturing base back. This was after Barack Obama said it could not be done. He built a wall between the United States and Mexico so that immigrants would be properly screened as they entered. The wall has proved to be a benefit to both citizens and non citizens. He repaired the VA. He initiated a trade war with China that has greatly improved the United States’ trade position with that nation. He renegotiated NAFTA and greatly improved the United States’ trade position with Mexico and Canada. He got European nations to pay their fair share of NATO. He negotiated peace in the Middle East. Pre-pandemic, he increased employment among every minority, and, thanks to the strong economy he built, that employment is quickly coming back. He strengthened markets both before and during the pandemic. He initiated the Warp Speed program and got several vaccinations ready faster than experts thought possible. Donald Trump blessed our nation with the skills he honed through a lifetime of entrepreneurship. The only thing Americans had to do was sit back and let him.

In the meantime, Democrats initiated two onerous and counterproductive investigations into Donald Trump then lied and cheated incessantly to facilitate those investigations. They fostered division and racism. They coordinated with big tech to advance corporatocracy in the interests of the Chinese Communist Party. Democrats ruthlessly persecuted worthy nominees to the Supreme Court. They mismanaged the pandemic in their own regions and killed thousands of elderly. They supported violent burning, looting and vandalism in nearly every Democrat enclave. Remarkably, instead of working to curtail the violence, they commenced to defund the police. Does anyone actually believe defunding the police is a good idea? For their encore, Democrats stole a presidential election. Democrats proved that in modern America if one utterly foregoes decency and legitimacy for as long as it takes, one can ultimately seize power.

Donald Trump and his supporters worked feverishly to show Americans these realities. Yet, when given a choice, Americans chose as their president in 2020 an incompetent Democrat that is under the thumb of China and is implicated in an influence peddling criminal probe. He promised to “build back better”, be nicer and give lots of stuff away. The only other consistency in his message was blaming Donald Trump for a virus that originated in Wuhan China. In essence, Americans chose him for his empty promises, his unthreatening behavior and one preposterous lie. It is likely that he effectively stole the election—rather that it was stolen for him—but enough Americans voted for him to make that theft possible, and they ultimately allowed him to assume power. Like Jack of Jack and the Beanstalk, Americans traded their reliable, albeit coarse, family cow for a handful of magic beans. Like Jack, Americans will be rewarded with a colossal vegetable: Joe Biden. If this seems purely allegorical, consider the following video narrated by our new Vice President:

Jack and the Rising Beansprouts

On January 6, 2021, Americans who still grasp our nation’s mission tried to show their disapproval. Their mostly peaceful protest was denigrated and their real message was ignored. That protest will be misrepresented as an insurrection in history books written by the hypocrites who control our academic institutions. Donald Trump will be misrepresented as instigating an insurrection. With the exception of the martyrdom of Ashli Babbitt and the puzzling death of one police officer, it was an unremarkable event. The protesters were unarmed and very little actual harm was done. They left peaceably when asked. There is a quote misattributed to Thomas Jefferson: “When governments fear the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” Those protesters were merely reminding their government to be afraid…and God bless them for their trouble. Some politicians and pundits (even on Fox News) have compared this protest to the attacks on 9/11/2001. For me, the insufferable pretension of those politicians and pundits was the last straw.

The United States has become a nation composed primarily of fools. Whether they foolishly chose Joe Biden as their leader through incompetence, cowardice or actual intent is irrelevant. Collectively, they are fools. A nation can be only as great as its citizens. There can be no great nation composed primarily of fools, so there is no future for the United States. Moreover, I would prefer not to tarnish the memory of a once great republic by associating it with its present inhabitants. There is a popular meme that goes a long way in describing our present predicament:

Hard times create strong men.

Strong men create good times.

Good times create weak men.

Weak men create hard times.

The United States of America had a magnificent 244 year run, but now it is gone. It has been replaced by Unbelievably Stupid America…an example of idiocracy (still the USA, though). A process of decadence that was initiated 100 years ago by John Dewey has finally coalesced. It is no longer possible to be a citizen of the United States of America. Citizenship in the United States of America is no longer possible for the same reason that it is no longer possible to be a citizen of the ancient Roman Republic. Our own republic, the United States, might have lasted another four years if Republicans in office had grown a spine and protected the Constitution, but they chose, instead, to look out for their own welfare and save their own pitiful incumbencies. And so their incumbencies may be safe, for the time being, but they too are dated. I feel badly for military veterans and service men and women tonight. For nearly 250 years they have fought our nation’s battles, and we have come to this. They did their job and I recognize their excellence. Alas, I am only the messenger. What has transpired is bigger than all of us.

It is not practicable for Trump supporters to be citizens of this new nation. Unbelievably Stupid Americans have already deprived us of the right to speak, and they are beginning to deprive us of the right to vote. To effect the former, they have been complicit in selective censoring on campuses and social media. To effect the latter, they are making it easy for noncitizens to vote in elections. This means that they are cancelling the votes of actual citizens. By taking away our right to speak and vote, they are stripping us of our citizenship. Moreover, powerful inhabitants of the region that once constituted the United States do not want people like us to be citizens. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her comrades have made that abundantly clear. They have started forming enemy’s lists and are making plans to punish people whose political views differ from their own. Doxing and blackballing appear to be their first order of business. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her comrades do not necessarily represent all or even most Americans, but remember: Unbelievably Stupid Americans are responsible for these characters. They put them into power.

Some residents of the former United States see the aforementioned offenses as a second amendment issue. However, they are making an important mistake. The second amendment was intended to protect citizens from tyranny. No oppressive government is stripping us of our rights. No foreign government has invaded…not yet, at least. We are suffering from a moral and ethical meltdown. We are suffering from lazy, wishful thinking. Too many former Americans have forgotten our original mission and ceased to care about restoring it. They are more concerned with rationalizing personal pronouns than with keeping their homes and families safe. Like ancient Romans, they have busied themselves redefining ‘gravitas’ until it no longer resembles anything like a plausible virtue. We are not being oppressed or conquered. We are rotting from within. It would not be possible to shoot enough people to correct this problem. Some militia group might seize control and install what they consider a responsible government, but what then? If they established anything resembling a democracy our slothful inhabitants would just vote them out again. If they established any other form of government, they would be hastening the inevitable.

Some residents of the former United States believe that if Joe Biden does a poor job, Americans will elect a Republican in 2024. They even believe it is possible that Americans will reelect Donald Trump. This is extremely unlikely. Democrats have an airtight strategy to shift the demographics of the former United States irreversibly in their favor, and they fully intend to deploy it. They will simply declare 20 million undocumented immigrants to be citizens. Failing that, they will fall back on their tried and true machinery to steal the next election. This time, they will have legal cover from the top. However, if Americans do succeed in getting a Republican into office, it most likely will not reverse what they have done and it definitely will not reverse what they have become. If their answer to stupidity is to do the opposite when given another opportunity, they are no better than animals. Even a rat will go right if it got a shock the last time it went left. Besides, in 2024, if Unbelievably Stupid Americans get a Republican into office, it will likely be a Republican who makes empty promises, is unthreatening and who ultimately bows to the deep state, corporate powers and foreign influences. Americans have already proved they have lost their way. They may get lucky once more or they may not. Ultimately, they will throw craps. I cannot endure years of monitoring them as they replace their present addiction with a different one.

For these reasons, I have decided to remain within the borders of the former United States but begin self-identifying as an illegal alien. Bear in mind that I do not consider myself alien to the United States, but rather alien to the idiocracy that has replaced the United States.

Before I explain what a self-identifying illegal alien is, I will first clarify what it is not. The term “illegal” does not necessarily refer to citizenship but an attitude about national laws. One who disregards the spirit of such laws and follows them only to the extent that is necessary to avoid consequences is, in my opinion, effectively illegal. An “alien” is not necessarily a person from a foreign land. Alien refers to anyone or anything that differs in nature to the point of incompatibility. I feel that I am incompatible with the nation that has emerged in the wake of this election.

As I see it, these are the characteristics of a self-identifying illegal alien (SIIA, pronounced SEE-ya):

  1. Never donates to or supports any political organization or cause. There can be no party for self-identifying illegal aliens. No “tent” is that big.
  2. Votes in elections. Voting has been made easy and one may as well feel a sense of entitlement regardless of how insignificant one’s influence may be.
  3. Takes advantage of any and all government give-away programs wherever and whenever feasible.
  4. Covertly avoids civic duty such as serving in juries and participating in anti-racist struggle sessions. Illegal aliens are not citizens and should not delude themselves into believing that they are. They may serve in any capacity that they believe is necessary to protect their loved ones, their residency or their freedom.
  5. Privately brags about being a self-identifying illegal alien. Self-identifying illegal aliens are coolly smug. They also need to be aware of one another. They often display the Ascension of Biden symbol (explained below).
  6. Officially claims to be a solid citizen in good standing. Self-identifying illegal aliens do not unnecessarily risk official sanctions.
  7. If the going gets rough, abandons the country, or at least the Leftist regions of the country, and sheds all concern thereof. There can be no patriotic loyalty to a nation to which one neither belongs nor is wanted. This does not mean abandoning loved ones.

Henceforth, I shall self-identify as an illegal alien residing in a nation where I do not naturally belong and where, frankly, my citizenship is being revoked.

Although I have begun to self-identify as an illegal alien, I see no reason why I should give up any advantages connected to residing in Unbelievably Stupid America. It should be relatively safe to remain here, for a while at least, as long as one is covert. It is safe for undocumented immigrants, so it should be safe for self-identifying illegal aliens.  Moving would be a lot of work, for now at least, and the extant nation promises lots of giveaways under Joe Biden. I have paid for those giveaways with my hard earned tax dollars and I would like to benefit from them as long as possible.

This ring is the official symbol of the self-identifying illegal alien. It helps adherents to the movement identify one another. It is called Ascension of Biden:

The baldness represents the phoniness of “Plugs Biden”. The Vacant eyes represent the blindness of those who propped him up. The “HA HA HA” represents the world laughing at the United States in its demise. The clown face represents that Joe is a joke. The aura of death represents the darkness behind the joke: the death of the United States. Its manufacture in China represents the United States’ ruling class selling out. The overall sense of disrespect represents the self-identifying illegal alien movement.

These are actual pictures of the ring. It can be purchased from several sellers. I recommend buying precisely one from three different sellers, since shipment from China can be a bit sketchy…as is the Biden administration…and its connection to China. The hollowed out part behind the face results in a fitting problem that I have noted in rings. If you are normally fitted with a ring that is completely solid in a certain size, then you should get one size smaller in the Biden ring. Thus, if your usual ring size is 11 for a completely solid ring, you should get a size 10. If you do not know your ring size, you should first get one of these:

If the ring won’t work for you, have the image printed or embroidered on a shirt, hat, bag, watch face or other customizable product. Who knows, there may soon be a market for Ascension of Biden wear. I do not recommend having it tattooed on your arm.

Keep in mind: the future may be bright…just not for the United States of America.

We SIIAs can remain here for as long as necessary, but we really need our own country. It would probably be too messy to carve one from the contiguous USA, but perhaps we can form a brand new country off-world by capitalizing on the work of true men of vision like Elon Musk. Fortunately, he is moving to Texas where he can do us some good. Suit yourself, but I may be headed for the stars. I have discussed my ideas for inhabiting space, a future government and a universal culture in other essays:

Colonizing Space

The Synthetic Republic

Spike’s New Moral Society

This is going to happen sooner and faster than most people expect. Artificial intelligence and robotics will greatly accelerate the rate that humans inhabit space. We need to get out there and get to work before Unbelievably Stupid America regulates the solar system to death and before its hegemon, China, establishes a cosmic tyranny. We can tell everyone back home that we are starting a colony. Hey, it worked for the Pilgrims! We can learn from their mistakes.

See ya in Siialand!

How God Views History

28 Dec

The other night, I got into a long discussion with a friend and colleague about why God allows evil to exist in the world. Her view is that he cannot prevent it because it is a consequence of the fall of man and sin entering the world. My view is that God permits unpleasant things to happen because they are an essential part of getting us to where he wants to take us.

Naturally, the subject of the Holocaust came up. How could there be any justification for allowing so many people to suffer such an unjust and horrific affliction? Before I discuss this, I must first make one thing perfectly clear. The Holocaust was a horrible atrocity and the Jews who suffered did not in any way shape or form deserve their fate. Nevertheless, the event did take place and anyone attempting to account for the appearance of evil in relation to God must explain this event. If you do not feel that you can tolerate any such explanation, you should stop reading NOW.

Anyone familiar with my writing knows that I utterly reject the possibility that God performs magic tricks. He is only able to help us and guide us through the medium of natural science. I have discussed the means by which he accomplishes this and his limitations in other writings.

Is it impossible that the Holocaust ultimately brought humanity to a better place? I can think of at least one plausible line of reasoning for how it could have improved our lot. Please suspend judgment until I finish my analysis and also keep in mind the purpose of this inquiry.

While Albert Einstein was visiting America, Hitler came into power in Germany. Since it was not safe for Einstein to return, he remained in the United States. He was one of the people who convinced President Roosevelt to start developing the atomic bomb. Although the mindset of someone like Albert Einstein is difficult to penetrate, it is not inconceivable that an otherwise peace loving man effectively prescribed the development of an unthinkable weapon because he anticipated Hitler’s agenda. Through the course of World War II the atomic bomb was developed and the resulting invention was utilized twice at the end of the war. That was horrific. However, atomic bombs have not been used in a military conflict at any time since the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Suppose the bomb had been completed later and/or by a different power than the United States. Instead of becoming the parting shot of the Second World War, it may have been the opening shot of a third world war. In that environment, it may have been used extensively and indiscriminately and resulted in the end of human civilization. Since the bomb was completed at the end of the Second World War and was used precisely twice, it entered the world’s imagination as an unimaginable horror that might result in mutant monsters or universal death. Humanity, as a species, learned to fear it at a time when their fear would have an opportunity to grow and fester. As a consequence, the atomic bomb has not been used in a military conflict at any time since the end of World War II.

However, there is a side effect of our fear of atomic weapons that became unmistakable at the end of the Cold War between the US and the USSR. Since every large nation quickly developed a massive stockpile of atomic weapons, the world became afraid of entering into a serious military conflict. Large nations have been afraid to get into direct conflicts because they fear that such conflicts may result in one side or the other becoming sufficiently desperate to deploy atomic weapons. As a result, they have fought mostly proxy wars and wars of posturing (cold wars) that have cost human lives but nothing on the scale of an all-out world war. It could be argued that the atomic bomb has been the greatest instrument of peace the world has ever known. Who would have guessed that sheer terror was the key to world peace?

So, it could be argued that the Holocaust resulted in the early creation of a weapon too terrible to use and that this weapon and its time of development has kept the world from entering into an all-out military conflict for 75 years. Again, I am not justifying the Holocaust. I am merely showing how it could actually have resulted in fewer casualties and less destruction than might otherwise have occurred.

If the scenario I have presented above seems too Rube Goldberg-esque, consider this simpler possibility. The Holocaust and comparable events perpetrated by Japan brought those nations and the whole world considerable shame. However, the use of nuclear weapons on Hiroshima and Nagasaki has inevitably been compared to those atrocities. Nearly every world power is worried about being the next one that is compared to Nazi Germany and they know that if they use NBC weapons (colloquially WMDs) such comparisons are inevitable. In this way also, the Holocaust may have saved the world from a civilization ending third world war.

I should point out at this juncture that the notion that horrible acts can be permitted by God and give rise to positive long term consequences is not completely alien to either the Christian or Jewish world view. In the Biblical account of Joseph (the one that was given the Technicolor coat), when he explains his brothers’ act of selling him into slavery, he says, “You planned evil against me; God planned it for good to bring about the present result—the survival of many people.” The idea that a horrible act permitted by God can ultimately have positive consequences is not new. It just is not often considered at the scale of something as historically troubling as the Holocaust.

However, all of this kind of misses the point. Whether or not I, as a limited human being, can imagine how something as horrible as the Holocaust could have been an overall benefit to the world, I suspect that this general apprehension only touches on how God views it. God has a definite objective that he intends to arrive at. I have described what I think that objective may be in other discussions. History is apparently something like a giant tree where possibilities are continually pruned away as time progresses. Every branch that remains on the tree of history represents possibilities for where we are headed as a species and every branch that is pruned away represents possibilities that have been eliminated. The paths leading away from the Holocaust were pruned away at least eighty years ago.

Apparently, for some reason that we may ultimately guess, but may never actually be sure of, the branch of the tree that extends to where God wants to take us led through the Holocaust. In that sense, it was neither good nor bad. It was merely one length of the long branch that takes us where God wants us to go. It would probably be impossible for any human to perform a calculation that shows all the people who lived and died as a result of the Holocaust or all the deeds they might have done or not done or how any of them might have turned out. God apparently sees the whole tree and can make such calculations accordingly.

So, this is how I suspect that God views history. He does not see it as a balance sheet of good works weighed against harm done. He sees it as a path to an objective that may, for whatever reason, take us through some rough territory.

The argument could certainly be made that we could have gotten to where we are or where we ultimately need to be without so much horror, but that is a very limited and human view of the tree of history. As humans, we cannot know what is and is not essential.

It would certainly have been difficult to convince a hypothetical person standing at the beginning of the Holocaust and knowing what is about to happen that it will all be for the best. That person would have objected, saying, “But wait a minute! You are saying that the end justifies the means. What if we do not get to the end that you are proclaiming? In that case, we will have gone through all this horror for no reason at all.” That person would have been correct. That is why humans should not perpetrate unthinkable atrocities as a means to an end. They may perpetrate them anyhow, and God may have reasons for allowing them to do it. However, such large scale planning is for God, not for men. Men should try to do only good. God alone is capable of permitting evil as a way of ultimately accomplishing good.

This is a difficult construct to wrap one’s head around and seems to suggest that God has no concern for individual lives. However, that is not the case. While I have presented this concept of trees with branches in a simplistic manner, the reality is that it is an extremely complicated construct with more inns and outs than any human can possibly take into account. It is a certainty that God looks at the lives of individuals and does for them what can be done while not neglecting the overall structure of the tree. Humans can never see events in that way…simultaneously at the microscopic and macroscopic scale. God can. He can juggle an infinite number of variables and maximize every one of them. Humans can handle at most a few variables and can rarely maximize more than a couple. We have developed mathematics and we are developing computers that are capable of extending our ability to do such calculations, but we are still relative infants where that kind of calculation is concerned.

I realize that this essay may be offensive to some. I hope I have not seemed to take a horrible historical atrocity and present it is as a mere mechanical process. Possibly, the Holocaust is still too fresh and raw in many minds to entertain such a discussion. Long ago, I attended the funeral of a cousin’s two year old daughter. Someone attending the funeral suggested to her that it was God’s will that her baby die. I learned on that occasion that one does not say such things to those who are still grieving. Nevertheless, the Holocaust is the big elephant in the room for anyone attempting to explain the appearance of evil in the world in relation to God, and I may not be around in fifty years when everyone has sufficiently recovered from the trauma to be able to look at it from a historical perspective. I have done my honest best. I can already hear a shout in the distance: “How dare you suggest that the Holocaust was anything but pure evil! How dare you suggest that it ever accomplished any good!” For some reason, I envision this shout coming from Sarah Silverman, although I have no idea why she in particular comes to mind. Note, however, that this is the premise that leads many to reject the possibility of God. They argue that a good God could not allow such suffering in the world and therefore that he cannot exist. While they may reject my premise, I must reject their conclusion. I am not attempting to justify a horrendous act. I am trying to explain God’s relationship to such acts. If someone rejects my argument and their rejection ultimately causes them to reject the possibility of God, they are at the greater loss. Their inability to get past their visceral emotional reaction is costing them every chance of achieving any genuine hope for the future.

The same historical tree that I have depicted will ultimately be my judge. If I am pruned away tomorrow, hopefully my words will still be a benefit to someone…if only as an example of places where one should never go.
