Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Hallowe'en 2020: A Little Switch A Roo

On 4 August 2020, 4chan/x/ - the forum's paranormal board - discussed the 2014 disappearance of Dutch tourists Lisanne Froon and Kris Kremers. They took note of  a 2020 BBC news story about a murdered band of tourists at GatĂșn Lake. They also discussed this probably-photoshopped, grisly image from Deadfleet Non 2011, thereby adding to the distressing mystery, which has circulated on the Internet for years.

Blog Forum Announcement: Covert Cryptos?

In the shift to a digitized economy, stakeholder capitalism, and commodified humanity, this blog's Discord research asks: if the global vaccination drive is administered by an AI-driven blockchain, will a cryptocurrency be used to monetize that blockchain, and if so, which one?

Discord #bookchats for Thursday and Friday September 3-4, 2020 will be canceled and replaced by chats on the forum, September 3-4, from 6 pm eastern. These are two catch-up sessions for Patreon supporters, who have access to the blog's forum.

Go to: https://hottc.forumotion.com/t25-can-blockchains-save-us-from-blockchains

I won't be on Discord for #bookchat on Saturday, September 5, 2020.

Forum topics: (1) Identifying any investible cryptocurrency attached to the blockchain to be used in the global vaccination drive.  (2) AAVE, cryptos and real estate.

- The blog's private forum (https://hottc.forumotion.com) provides a community for medium-tier Patreon supporters (https://www.patreon.com/LCDouglass). Register at the forum and your account will be activated when your Patreon support is confirmed.

Can Blockchains Save Us from Blockchains?

Will blockchains enslave us or free us? Image Source: Harvard University.

In June, I moved discussions on this blog to a Discord group, blog forum, and Patreon posts, to build a community and avoid censorship. After two months, Discord chats reveal that behind the pandemic lies the global implementation of blockchain technology, through the planned vaccination of every person on earth.

Distributed ledgers can track and trace vaccines as well as the vaccinated. Critics claim that blockchains can also potentially establish a new kind of technocratic slavery.

We stand at a crossroads, because blockchains offer Main Street a way to survive during an economic collapse. Cryptocurrencies, gold and silver are the main hedges for the common people against a new great depression, a shelter from technocrats' transition to worldwide stakeholder capitalism, which the latter call the Great Reset.

While this reset is couched in benevolent, humanitarian and inclusive terms, a World Economic Forum discussion on 3 June 2020 revealed that it is anything but. Davos leaders plan to cap the number of stakeholders in their planned economy at 1 billion and they mean to select that group of 1 billion people. And again, critical to that cashless and exclusive Great Reset system is the blockchain. Central banks and the financial districts of the world are suddenly united in their pursuit of digital currencies.

Can blockchains save us from blockchains? To answer this and other pandemic questions, I have divided the discussion into the following schedule:

Discord #bookchat: Problems of the Pandemic
  • Saturdays, Sundays and all weekdays except Friday: 6 pm-7:30 pm; Fridays: 6 pm-9 pm Eastern (NYC) time. The bookchat on Fridays covers research relating to the writing of my red-pilled history of the early 21st century, Inside the Potemkin Village.
Blog forum (for Patreon supporters): Answers in the Pandemic
  • Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays: 7:30 pm-9 pm Eastern (NYC) time. Includes: cryptocurrency investment discussion, prepping, economic survival.

The Internet of Humans

Very few sources tell you clearly what is happening now in the world. Blogger activists Alison McDowell at Wrench in the Gears and Robin Eubanks at Invisible Serfs Collar explain how a new technocratic system and a human capital economy are being built on the backs of an Internet of Humans. They reveal radical truths in a bankrupt world, based on lies.

McDowell and Eubanks contend that today's technocrats and power-brokers are wolves in sheep's clothing, who conceal their real endgame behind benevolent rhetoric and philanthropic projects. The most serious example of this is evident in the new field of social impact investing, which transforms human lives into Big Data, anchored on blockchains, to drive AI systems of social control. These technocratic systems will eventually sideline today's state governments.

Both bloggers are preoccupied with exposing systemic truths, cloaked in reversed and diversionary meanings. Eubanks has stated that his legal background led to his interest in accurate versus misleading language:
"I started off in Big Law doing corporate work and then helped start a legal department for a small healthcare company that grew to be a New York stock-exchange traded company. Healthcare turned into an excellent background for my current work in education as government regulation and special privileges drive the everyday dynamics of what raises money and creates costs.
A background in Law is also excellent preparation for determining precisely what the terms commonly used actually mean. Especially in an industry that is consciously using language to hide the actual intended goals. My experience allowed me to recognize that education in the US and globally has been, for decades, engaged in a massive Newspeak (as in George Orwell’s 1984) campaign that creates a public illusion on what is being promised and what is coming to the schools and classrooms that are this country’s future. I know what the words and terms really mean to an Ed insider and how it differs from the common public perception. ...

For me the English language is both a sword and a shield. I have documented what is really going on, written a book describing how and why education became a weapon."
McDowell has revealed technocratic plans for a Fourth Industrial Revolution in a recent interview, posted in four parts on Youtube. I have already posted these videos. But this is the one must-see set of Youtube videos in 2020. Please watch, please share.

These plans may have been decades in the making and well formed, but there is no guarantee that these plans are scalable beyond their pilot project launches in American municipalities such as Harlem, New York, Santa Clara, California, and the Twin Cities - and, in the UK, Peterborough.

The technocracy is not inevitable but the launch phase is underway. Whether human capital and stakeholder capital projects will be implemented on a grand scale depends on the blindness, acquiescence, and obedience of the population. My upcoming posts on Patreon will discuss remedies to social blindness, and the public's inability to perceive technocratic dangers.

Everyone is invited to join the discussion. Friday, 14 August 2020. 6-9 pm Eastern (10 pm-1 am UTC).
