The Coming War On Information


 

Recalling the Nazi Burning of Books

The heard phrase: `history repeats itself’ is potentially finding its relevance in this tumultuous time as the world awaits the inauguration of Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States.

Preceding this historical event, predicated upon the choice selection of the coming Trump Administration’s Cabinet members, professional communities are actively taking steps to preserve precious scientific information archives from perceived potential of tampering, deletion and retarding of broad accessibility. Literally, backup copies of all relevant scientific information and study in the realm of climate change especially, are being directed to foreign countries such as Canada for preservation and safe-keeping.

 

The construct of President-Elect Trump’s cabinet speaks to a denial of all claims of human industrial impact on the environment leading to an inevitable broad deregulation, if not total dissolution of agencies established to protect the environment.

Not only will Trump’s administration impact the field of science but too, education, social security, health and welfare and most importantly, immigration, are directly targeted for dramatic, draconian change given the faces to occupy key positions within his administration.

Without a doubt, the only winners, ironically, will be those whom his vocal and candid supporters of his campaign, the lower & middle working class, are against; the establishment elite. Proof to this are the conflicting statements regarding tax cuts which during his campaign suggested major benefits for lower-middle class earners [campaign tax plan] and subsequent statements post his election [tax cut expected]. It will remain to see what actually transpires but, no doubt, those who enthusiastically supported him stand to be greatly disappointed.

There is little doubt Trump’s campaign slogan: `Make America Great Again’ will unleash a tsunami of de-construction of policies and regulations that took decades of progressive administrations to establish. The Will of the People who take responsibility for putting a shrewd, win-at-any-cost individual such a Trump in the White House, have also provided him with a compliant Congress, Senate and most importantly, a Supreme Court to allow his administration to chart a course unprecedented in the history of the United States and the World, no doubt, potentially stands to be the worse for it. Only with time’s passage will it be known what fate awaits us all.

What Monumental Event?


PROMISE BOUND

Awakening to this world increasingly in disarray,
When will this needless suffering go away?
Cluster bombs, extreme weather taking innocent lives,
When will we take serious the global, human, deathly cry?

Who are these leaders that make the charge?
To what end do they allow this to go so far?
To allow suffering on such monumental scale,
Can they not see their deemed leadership, disastrously fail?

Have decades of brutal war on every horrendous scale,
Not taught humanity, this is a defeatist’s path to curtail?
Trillions of dollars expended to advance this inflicted pain,
All to the benefit of those, out of harm’s way, to richly gain.

Political platitudes and ceremonial remembrances become insults
To those willingly giving their lives, to remedy these egregious faults.
Expending the future of humanity, being lost to needless death and strife;
What monumental event will it take to bring back a loving, harmonious life?

The Blame


flag

This poem was written a while back, however, given the recent expansionist mindset of the current Canadian government to give approval to the installation of a liquid natural gas terminal on the pristine coastal waters of British Columbia recently; it demands a revisit to consider the possible detrimental, future outcome of such an environmentally impacting decision. 

Myopic is the global, political mindset,
It yields the greatest electoral return,
Foregoing the interest of the unborn children,
Yields fossil fuels legislated to pollute, opposition to spurn.

Jobs, jobs, and more jobs
The rationale to explain and excuse
The destruction of earthly resources;
Health and welfare of the many to be abused.

Fracking, pipelines nomenclature of the day,
Hyped as essential for the economy to survive.
Forests and fresh water are resources to be given up for the cause;
Deemed unessential for humanity to flourish and thrive.

The powers that be hold all the relevant cards,
The balance of power rests in their hand.
To reverse the current destructive, global path;
The powerless together, must unite and band.

Populace, street demonstrations are impudent to needed change;
A more powerful, permanent message may be needed, enforced.
A global, collective opposition to those whom self-serving, rule;
A tangible, visible sign of change that all humanity can endorse.

Violence, loss of property and life is not the wanted course
Yet they who hold the power for conditions to be sustained;
Continue to ignore the plight and demands of the many,
Whatever the outcome, responsibility, to them, the blame, remains.

The Right to Breath

Right to Breath

Banking of Nature: An insightful and somewhat disturbing look at current financialization of earthly resources that opens the environment to speculative machinations of Wall Street with its dire reputation for the loss of trillions of dollars worth of wealth by the crash of 2008, the impact of which is still being dealt with and, now this greed machine is targeting the natural resources on which to bet.  

Watch this documentary presented by the Passionate Eye:

http://www.cbc.ca/passionateeye/episodes/banking-nature

to which I felt the need to express my distraught via the following poem:
Right To Breath

Financial machinations of white shirts and ties
Entombed in glittering glass and concrete towers
While outside, increasingly, the monetized world dies
Succumbing to insatiable greed of stolen global power

Nations stripped of resources for short-sighted economic gain
Common Peoples’ lives measurably deemed expendable
When barren, deforested land for them is all that remains
A reality scourge that is inhumane and incomprehensible

Irrational reasoning of so-called wise and learned men
Around boardroom tables devise, scheme and plot;
Their foolishness of folly questionably there to defend
When all that motivates is growth of their riches sought

Stock market speculation of all future life here on Earth
Already an experienced, proven destructive ending course
Will lead to all that is living being given its economic worth
A time when the `right to breath’ will be a financial source

REALITY: A Rear View Reflection?


What is Reality? Most of us take ‘reality’ for granted that is, to take the view (no pun intended) that it is what is before us, that what we see, hear, smell, taste and feel. But is it?

In the field of quantum physics, physicists for generations have attempted to clarify or quantify reality in measurable, mathematically equational terms. The fundamental element to what reality is, is ENERGY. The all too familiar Einsteinian equation: E=mc2 (energy=mass x the speed of light squared). However, since the acceptance of this fundamental equation physics has advanced in its theories of reality to the realm of particles, quarks and string theory. However, even with these advances in the science, the ability to satisfactorily balance the equation to mathematically equate a formula to address all known quantum that manifests as `reality’ has not reached consensus by peer review.

So what is missing, what will it take to understand or present a clear, acceptable formula to say what comprises reality?

TIME:

Just recently it was reported that the Hadron Collider in Cern (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/44629271/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/neutrinos-clocked-moving-faster-than-light-speed/#.TtkiQ1bZfT4d) a neutrino (non-charged electron) that arrived at its target faster then speed of light i.e., it traveled faster than the speed of light. In accord with scientific protocol, the test was repeated and confirmed the event.

The implication of this finding, beyond confound the general acceptance that nothing travels faster then light and, in view of the generally accepted principle: speed of light is the component to the principle equation for energy, then what implication does this have for the understanding to: what is reality?

INFORMATION:

This era of human history is clearly the Information Age and like its predecessors: the Stone-Age, the Iron-Age and the Industrial-Age, it is undoubtedly going to play a significant role in clarifying for human-kind Who and What it is and to better comprehend the Where, When and How it will evolve from the present Now toward what Time defines as a Future. Note here too, though time has been included in this statement as per the section above, its relevance is truly questionable.

So what is Information?

To anyone mildly familiar with the mechanics of how a computer does the seemingly miraculous thing it does, elementally, it is purely the sequencing of ones (1‘s) or positive charge electrons and zeros (0‘s) negatively charged electrons that in prescribed sequence are deciphered by a central process to create the desired reality; virtual reality. Note here too, time is not an essential contributor to the process. The time element is imposed into the equation by virtue of the observer to the transaction. To understand better, the virtual reality within the realm of the computer’s memory – time is unknown, it just IS, It knows nothing of the fact that is was manufactured by the processing of a specified sequence of ones and zero (positive and negative electrons) therefore, by extending this comprehension to the dimension humanity calls reality, is it not likely to be comparable?

So to answer the question: What is Information? It could be postulated that it is Consciousness,

So what is Consciousness?

Not unlike the computer with its central processor, the human and all living, organic, biological entities, is nothing more than an elaborate, mobile, biological computer with its own central processor: the Brain replete with a hardwired, communications network; the central nervous system to perform involuntary and voluntary functions that move the human body through its various capabilities. Too, not unlike the computer, these functions are identifiable on two levels: a basic operating system and application software.

The basic operating system for all living entities is its DNA (Deoxyribonucleic Acid). The double-helix is the program born with every living entity to direct how the biological entity will operate from conception forward through its lifespan. Inherent in DNA code translates to the what and how for the biological entity; when being not a function of time as it is commonly referred but rather, a function of cycle (not unlike the cycle of the Moon orbit the Earth and the two, orbiting the Sun).

As detailed above, the operating system routinely transmits electronic signals to perform various, essential operations keeping the biological machine `live’ (breathing, blood circulation, etc). and, responses to external, unforeseen events (example: a rise in body temperature due to an activity causing the body to sweat). Note: these functions are performed without the influence of time but are cyclical or immediate.

The second level eluded to application software; how does this manifest?

Arguably. it can be simply stated as information `learned’ or acquired. This can be classified as external information and knowledge: gained through education, interaction with others, experience, etc..

Then there is intuitive knowledge. Knowledge theorized as encoded to DNA as a function of biological evolution, passed-forward, generation to generation. This hypothesis is open to speculation and at the root to this discussion.

Firstly, accepting the principle: the brain, the human brain for this discussion, is comparable to the central processor of the computer; not unlike the computer, it reacts, processes according to minute electrical impulses on neuron synapsis’ that, by way of the nervous system, stimulate specific, physical activity. Then what about `mental’ or `cognitive’ brain activity?

The discussion now becomes more esoteric, speculative and definitely arguable as to its veracity and strength in fact.

To aid in making this part of the discussion more comprehensible, the analogy of the recent and growing computer technology service: Cloud Computing Technology will be used:

The Cloud utilizes the resources (software and information) from computers as a collective virtual computer, where the applications can run independently from particular computer or server configurations basically, floating around in a “cloud of resources” making hardware less important to know how applications work. The software run on individual computers or those of a company’s is becoming less and less essential. Add to this configuration Wi-fi technology, allows an individual user to seemingly access and extract information, for all intents and purposes, out from nowhere specific. And this is how it is hypothesized the mental and cognitive brain functions.

The Hypothesis: As do a school of fish in a body of water, humans swim in an unseen pool of cosmic electrical energy comprised of positive and negatively (ones and zeros) charged particles that, not unlike a computer central processor, can be translated into information.

The brain with its built in `wi-fi’ receiver becomes the recipient and processor of digital information offered up by the cloud of consciousness contained within the cosmic electrical ocean that envelops all living entities. It is suggested here this process is the source of such knowledge as intuition, imagination, inventiveness, etc.; information for which there is no discernable source but coming from the human brain.

There are several documented anecdote that support this possibility such as that written by Christopher M. Bache titled: The Living Classroom – Teaching and Collective Consciousness that brings into question that minds are individual, separated and isolated from one-another. Further questioning the Newtonian view that the universe is essentially dead.

Synopsis:

What has been presented here is a simplistic, hypothetical perspective of a very complex and compelling subject that affects all of humanity though, unfortunately, ignored by most.

Encumbered by antiquated, institutional theories for the topic has only served to retard the advancement of enlightened theories and limit open discourse for the inability to concretely and substantively meet the strict protocols of scientific purview thus subjugating it to the realm of pseudo-science and esoteric thinking.

That said, retrospective examination by those so inclined will undoubtedly find several opportunity from past experiences of serendipity, synchronicity, coincidence or even precognition to question whether that contended to be Reality is not unlike looking in a rear-view mirror whereby that being realized has already happened and it is just in the NOW realized by five limited senses of awareness.

Thought Du jour 01-19-15


JOKE

The grist of daily awakening, encumbered by the resolve to eliminate the angst of being within this captive vessel of genetic codes making, uncontrolled control of free will choosing, blind to ultimate consequence of dimensional implication, experiencing reality of experience realized, seeking what is not yet known to be sought, suffering what is not known of suffering, limited by the limitless choice for choosing, forgetting what is yet to be forgotten, ultimately dying from the death of it all.

One-way Ticket to Extinction


Since before the day the man who we’ve come to know as Jesus Christ, whether the Son of God or not, who took it upon himself to throw over the tables of the money-changers, running them out of the Temple of worship, charging them to be thieves by way of their commercial enterprises; the majority of humanity has suffered from the ills and hardships derived from the greed and power derived from and associated with, the mechanism know as Money.

Now in this 21st Century, the global commercial economy firmly committed to the avails of monetary exchange, essentially the life-blood to all that is to manifest, is driving this World’s inhabitants, all species, toward certain extinction.

As of this writing, in Paris France, for the third time since the start of this new millennium, a gathering of World leaders and a throng, a thousand-fold in number, of bureaucrats, activists, scientist and international journalist, have convened at the Cop 21 Climate Change Summit. A two week exercise to derive an international agreement setting limits on the level of carbon-dioxide emitted into the atmosphere and, practical measures to reduce existing levels to maintain a 1 degree Celsius rise in global temperatures.

Of the above statement what need be emphasised is `for the third time’.

To listen to what can only be termed `political rhetoric’ espoused by the respective leaders of participating nations, they ring hollow given that they speak to nothing new from words spoken in prior conferences. And, though some progress has be achieved by introduction of new carbon sequestration and limiting technologies, alternative energy solutions, etc.; on balance, they are dwarfed by comparison to the continued introduction of new sources and use of oil, coal and natural gas.

Too, the business driven concept solutions known as Carbon Tax and Cap and Trade are by any order of mindful rationale, nothing more then mechanisms to appease both commercial and public descent and short-term political solution to sustain power of government by the ruling political party. Regardless, the long term effects are still devastating to the well-being of all living creatures of the Planet.

To listen to the arguments present by the individual, international players comprising this latest gathering in Paris France, whether for and or against dramatic concrete, uniformly and permanently implemented efforts to combat the known environmental contributors to observed and experienced effects of Climate Change globally; Money is a the root to reasons put forward to substantiate either doing or not doing.

Given the life-threatening and extinction level effects of climate change presently and with certainty, future catastrophic events; money should be the last item of consideration when a viable, permanent solution is in the offering.

So, what or better stated: Who, is stopping this from happening?

Humanity has regrettably but succumb to the living concept that `money is power’. Countless lives and whole civilizations for aeons have been sacrificed to sustain this fictitious edict that, as stated at the beginning to this essay, has plagued human-kind since before the mythical time of one known as Jesus Christ.
Is it not time for this ridiculous concept to come to its end before it `buys’ humanity’s ticket to extinction?

There are solutions and it need not be bought by MONEY! The Collective of Humanity must once and through the strength and resolve of the power that is inherent purely by its presence on this planet Earth, TAKE BACK, that which belongs to every living specie: the RIGHT TO LIVE!
