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.

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

Image Source: Trade Finance Global.

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.

Online Group Discussion and AMA Bookchat Today: Social Control and Blockchains

Image Source: 4chan.

There is an AMA Bookchat today on the blog's Discord group (https://discord.com/invite/Zy9XVad). This is a weekly text chat in which I talk with readers about technology's legacy in the early 21st century, in the form of red-pilled history. My definition of red-pilling is here. The bookchat is part of my work while I write my book-in-progress, Inside the Potemkin Village.

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

Theme: Social Control and Blockchains

Go to the room marked hashtag #bookchat. The blog's Discord was established as a free, mutually-supporting community.

Time and Politics 28: The Transhuman Globalization of Slavery

Simplistic right-left political arguments do not explain current events. Image Source: 4chan.

Listen to mainstream analysts, commentators and protesters about current events, and you will hear grim economic and electoral prognostications as the foundations are laid for medical dictatorship. These ideas are being combined with anti-identity and pro-environmental narratives, inserted into canned left-right politics.

Our problems cannot be explained through simple appeals to these old ideas. This is a watershed moment, a transition into techno-feudalism, masquerading as techno-emancipation. There are remarkable historical continuities here, as American slavery revives and expands itself to include all of global citizens. The Black Lives Matter protests against racism and other legacies of American slavery are germane. BLM and Antifa activists' assumption that slavery is currently the preserve of one minority, or one class of people, or a product of a particular political system, based on history, is a mistake.

TRANSHUMANISM AND YOU (10 August 2020). Video Source: Bitchute.

Where the system once enslaved one group as it modernized, now it will enslave all groups. The blockchain is coming for us all. Where subspecies were once defined in terms of racism against a minority, or through the degradation of one social class, pure humans will now be considered the subspecies, compared to enhanced, transhuman cyborgs. Exploitation was always the wrong part of change and expansion. It never went away, and now it will be universalized and escalated through technology.

Any references to left and right politics when explaining the evolving politics of oppression will be misleading. That which is labeled good will be bad, that which is labeled bad will be good.

'Essential workers' are just the best house slaves. A technocracy will require scientists, doctors, and geneticists to follow the plans of social engineers and psychometric managers, who will, in turn, serve billionaire technocrats. Philanthropic, egalitarian, social health and welfare, academic and other altruistic fields will provide misdirection and positive window dressing for anti-human transhuman and posthuman systems.

Oil is being removed as the commodity which drives the global economy. The new basic commodity is humanity, transformed into Big Data which will be controlled and tokenized on blockchains. Instead of the stock market betting on whether a barrel of oil will rise and fall in price, it will bet on whether you will live or die, and which bits of your information are still valuable. The key term to know in this transition is 'rehypothecation.' In the videos below, alt- and techno-commentators explain how humanity is becoming the new global commodity through rehypothecation.

This is a launch not unlike the roll-out of a new iPhone, except that the nature of this particular technology - humanity commodified on the blockchain and integrated with computers through nanotechnology - is being obscured.

I have explained on this blog how robotics failed to cross the Uncanny Valley over the past generation. We never got Blade Runner androids which were nearly indistinguishable from humans. As a result, technocrats decided to transfer their chips and tools into our bodies, and turn us into the androids. As I have stated in other posts, this is why Bill Gates leads the trend: humans are computing's new wetware. The human body is Microsoft's Windows 11.1 operating system. Gates's involvement in the pandemic and education, as well as other social areas which should normally be outside his field of activity, are red flags that these areas are being subjugated to the needs of the technocracy.

The new economy will be based on the metrics of your physical existence, vastly expanding the definitions developed by medicine, the life and health insurance industries, and the banking and credit sectors. To survive in this emerging economy, it's not enough to talk about hyperinflation, worry about the overheated stock market, or buy gold and cryptos. It is necessary to understand how and why the economy is changing, and what that will mean for you when your thoughts and actions are intimately monitored and positively or negatively monetized.

My analyses on the rehypothecation of humanity will appear on the Blog's forum and in upcoming Patreon blog posts.
