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.

Online Group Discussion and AMA Bookchats: At the Lion's Gate

I have increased the bookchats on the blog's Discord group (https://discord.com/invite/Zy9XVad) to include daily, unusual insights into the changing economy, especially in relation to cryptocurrencies, nanotechnology, and technocracy. Blockchains are fascinating - until you're inserted into them.

These meetings are each evening in the #bookchat room, (6-7:30 pm Eastern (10 pm-11:30 pm UTC). If I cannot attend at that time, I'll notify the Discord group and do the session the next day.

On Fridays, I will continue to talk in #bookchat (6-9 pm Eastern (10 pm-1 am UTC) about technology's legacy in the early 21st century, in the form of red-pilled history. My definition of red-pilling is here. This week, the possible start to World War 3 could not have been more surreal, when the People's Liberation Army introduced their dedicated boy band in a live Hong Kong performance, "I am the bullet."

The bookchat is part of my work while I write my book-in-progress, Inside the Potemkin Village. Analyses of findings from these sessions will appear in blog posts and vidchats on Patreon and in the blog's forum. The blog's Discord, forum and Patreon offerings were established to develop a free, mutually-supporting community.

To mark the arcane Lion's Gate on 8/8/2020, the alt media are launching the fortnightly hashtag: #ExposeBillGatesDay. You can see related material on that herehereherehere, and here. I am not convinced that we will end up living and dying in a billionaire's paradise. These people are creatures of the system. When it is destroyed, they will erase their own bases for authority and wealth.

Bank Glitches and the Beirut Disaster

Against the backdrop of the Beirut explosion which took place 6 p.m. local time (11 a.m. ET) (see it here), it is very strange that tonight and for the past week or so, dozens of online banking services and some card services have been coincidentally down for maintenance, as is evident from tweets of disgruntled customers around the world.

Does the Beirut disaster connect to the fragility of the global economy at this moment? Banking is a worldwide business, and perhaps financial systems needed an upgrade. But maybe there is something more to the hundreds of complaints of bank customers on Twitter through the end of July and into the first days of August, 2020, who noticed that online banking services, and sometimes cards and ATMs, were suddenly not working. See a selection of complaints below the jump. There were hundreds more besides these examples, from around the globe.
