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.

Current Crises and Public Justice

Image Source: Fine Art America.

I have a new post up at Patreon, for $1 subscribers.

Become a Patron!

This post asks how we got to a point where the Federal Reserve was printing USD$1 trillion per day in March, 2020. We live in a world where cause and effect do not connect; where our leaders can do anything, hit bottom and dig, and no one can stop them.

As I discussed in this post at The Dragonfly, our whole global system is based on a disconnection between actions and consequences. Not only that, but this standpoint has moral, psychological, emotional, and spiritual consequences. Everything is based on simulated approximations and substitutes, materialistic proxies for the real thing. At the most profound level, this includes consumer goods and social status as replacements for love and compassion.

Crimes at the highest levels go hidden and unpunished. The everyday person is blamed for this great gap in accountability, which originated in the Second World War. Are there punishments for authorities' transgressions and violations of public trust? Or can the global public be endlessly plundered with no justice?

I am developing a general argument that pandemic crises will lead to a moment when actions will finally have consequences, thereby devastating the current order and all who have most profited from it. In order to understand this outcome better, today's Patreon post examines how we got here, by responding to the philosophical origins of our present, irresponsible materialism.

Those origins are summarized in the documentary below. They concern philosophical concepts of positive and negative liberty, which were developed in the 1950s, and which were combined by global policy-makers from the 1980s to the 2000s.

The Patreon post explains how the abuse of negative and positive liberty has led to a mendacious system, filled with illusions of prosperity, security, and love, rather than the real things. In our own personal lives, these lies start out early and seemingly innocently - as with traditions around Santa Claus (below).


This whole philosophical view is dangerous. It constitutes a distorted form of freedom, the freedom for blue-pilled, mainstream, conformist citizens to believe in universal lies, illusions, and proxies. These lies lead straight to totalitarianism. The way through and out of this problem depends on a reappraisal of freedom and the development of a system which demands that truth be reinstated as a basis for systemic architectures, private life, and public justice. My upcoming Patreon posts will discuss the path back to reality and the most creative individuals and projects committed to that end.

The Pandemic, One of Many Disruptive Technologies?

I have located a related video (below) from Celeste Solum about pandemic global plans at the World Economic Forum (WEF). I blogged about it in my previous two posts, The Birth of the Totalitarian Technocracy: Would You Like to Know More? and The Highest Point of Beta Male Ambition in Human History.

Artificial Intelligence and the Soon Coming Mark of the Beast! (22 April 2020). Video Source: Subsplash.

Solum, a former FEMA manager-turned-whistle-blower is also a militant Christian with a dash of New Age awakening. The opening music and religious rhetoric used by Lyn Leahz and Celeste Solum may not to be the taste of some readers, nor will their ideas. They are as far from a mainstream view of current events as it is possible to get.

However, the substance of what Solum is reviewing is drawn from mainstream Websites, including the WEF and Imperial College London. Thus, it might be worth considering this information. The video I originally shared which was censored was not the above interview; the censored video showed Solum exploring the WEF Website. You can see her commentaries dismissed as a hoax, here.

Coronavirus Fragments 16: The Highest Point of Beta Male Ambition in Human History

Image Source: The Verge.

On 23-24 May 2020, Celeste Solum's video, featured at the top of my 23 May 2020 post, The Birth of the Totalitarian Technocracy, which criticized the World Economic Forum's plans as a roadmap for totalitarian global governance, was taken off Youtube. The account which hosted it, Willem Felderhof, removed all content.

Assuming that the owner of the Willem Felderhof channel did not have a change of heart overnight for other reasons, this could be interpreted through a blue-pilled view, which trusts authority, or through a red-pilled lens, which does not. Was this a question of censoring harmful, crackpot disinformation? Or was this information suppressed because Solum's anti-establishment heresy was correct?

In alt media circles, there is a consensus that one is only shot down if one is over the target, that is, one's interpretation of establishment misdeeds was correct and therefore had to be silenced. Of course, the mainstream perspective is the opposite - that a particular interpretation of information is beyond the pale of reasonable discourse and must be suppressed.

On 19 May 2020, the NYT interpreted this distinction as a question of the dangers of being red-pilled, which it defined in terms of a gulf between left- or right-wing political opinions. But red-pilling is not about conservative politics, so much as it is about crashing out of the whole left-right paradigm. Being red-pilled reflects profound disillusionment about establishment narratives, a shattering of world views, and a refusal to accept top-down interpretations of information. The red-pilled experience of extreme alienation, born out of democratized access to information, countered by the control and manipulation of information, describes the new context of 21st century politics.

On this blog, I have maintained that social alienation and economic decline have been compounded by a misunderstanding of the degree to which things have changed over the past two decades. Outdated terms from previous centuries dominate our political, economic, and social discourses. They have not kept pace with enormous leaps in technology. Within that gap, there lie cognitive dissonance, and the potential for totalitarian exploitation as the public cannot distinguish between propaganda, that is, historical terms used to describe reality, and evident, Protean reality.

The Birth of the Totalitarian Technocracy: Would You Like to Know More?

Still from Starship Troopers (1997) © Sony / Buena Vista. Reproduced non-commercially under Fair Use.

There are people on the Internet who are already building the anti-technocracy. Among these is a New Age, back-to-the-land commentator, Celeste Bishop Solum. I haven't investigated her background, but she is listed as having worked for decades for the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and other US government agencies. She speaks with assurance and claims to be a whistleblower. Her profile statement is here. Her Website is here. I will address her New Age attitudes and anti-technocracy projects in a separate post.

Solum has summarized the birth of the totalitarian technocracy, in the form of an ever-changing, enormous plan for all sectors of the economy, society, politics, and all countries - by perusing the World Economic Forum's (WEF) Website.

Even if you doubt Solum's statements, opinions, and credibility, the WEF's statements are there for you to read for yourself, and you should read every last word on the WEF Website, if you want to know what is planned for you.

According to Solum, these pages explain how the technocracy will be birthed on the back of the pandemic and where all this is going. You have to create an account and sign in to see this information. Obviously, if you trust the authorities, you will not agree with Solum’s interpretation of WEF planning.

The planners' big picture for the pandemic:

Global Transhumanist Technocracy 1.0

Protests over the coronavirus lockdowns are becoming more intense, especially in the United States, as the impending related economic collapse comes into sharper focus. In Michigan, USA armed protesters entered the State Capitol building on 30 April 2020. Views are divided on these protests. Critics on social media showered  protesters with withering, politicized contempt; for example:
"All I see is a bunch of retarded right wingers and neo nazis getting Covid!"
"Why didnt one of this idiot fire a shot on the floor by accident and that will shut these fucker up. Imagine how the swat will get their asses."
".....morons, illiterates and animals, WITH WEAPONS. A person's true nature is always exposed in a crisis situation. I don't know about you, but I fear for our future."
"Bro if I was the governor I would have riot police push these fuckers outta the building"
The next uproar in the state of Michigan revolved around Karl Manke, a barber in Owosso, who reopened his shop, surrounded by supporters. When the police came to shut down the shop, an armed militia mobilized to block the police. A Circuit Court judge subsequently refused to uphold the Governor's order to shut down the shop.

In Seattle, Washington, USA, police officer Greg Anderson refused to arrest citizens for walking down the streets and other pandemic protocol violations. The father of three was subsequently put on leave, then fired for refusing to take down his Instagram message to other police officers (below). A family friend set up a Go Fund Me campaign on 11 May 2020. The crowdfund has raised almost half a million US dollars. The initial goal was USD $50,000.

There are two theories evolving in the alt media about nCov now, and neither focuses on public health. Both theories assume that the pandemic is really about the development of new weaponry and the introduction of new technology. One view, developed by George Webb, Dr. Paul Cottrell, Dr. Judy Mikovits and others, focuses on the big business of vaccines, as a front end activity for bioweapons development and espionage.

The second view, developed by Aaron and Melissa Dykes at Truthstream Media, among other members of the alt media, such as James Corbett and James Evan Pilato, is that we are witnessing the initial launch of the brain-body-machine interface. I find the second view convincing.

Awaken the Amnesiacs 13: Wake Up, You're Next

Wake Up Outta Your Sleep (3 May 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

The Technological Revolution stands at a crossroads. The leaders of the technocratic movement are using the global population to enter the heart of darkness. My Awaken the Amnesiacs series concerns the ways in which the technocratic movement has exploited human slumber, both the collective unconscious and a deliberately-imposed unconsciouness, forced upon our daily awareness.

Wake Up, You're Next

Dear members of the global public, you must wake up. You must heed the warnings. You must not sleepwalk into the technocratic heart of darkness. Authoritative voices will tell you to trust authority under the guise of the left-right division. They will tell you that believing them is part of your personal identity. You are intelligent, well-educated, prosperous, respectable, well-traveled, civilized, and liberal.

Make no mistake. The technocracy will use these slogans, but it is about being none of these things. Stop believing authorities, just because they are mainstream and official. It is not good enough, in the Age of Information, to state something and be believed just because one is authoritative. Purveyors of information must be telling the truth.

Nor is the current debate solely about COVID19, lockdowns, or a mandatory vaccine. This is not about whether a citizen is personally 'respectable' or 'intelligent,' or not. This is not about what other people will think if you change your mind. It is not even about the virulence of the virus and whether good citizens obey lockdowns. Leave all smug dismissals and judgements of others at the door. This is about whether you and everyone else will be subjugated to technocratic totalitarianism. It is about the implementation of the human body and brain as the new technocratic operating system. This is not a game.

If you agree with the mainstream media and official line because you think that Bill Gates is a selfless great humanitarian and his critics are ignorant, stupid, and left behind, impoverished racists, then you are reacting based on your social, educational, political, and professional conditioning.

For your own sake and for of all humankind, step back from politics. Even step back from the pandemic. Investigate the COVID19 question purely in terms of what is happening in the technological space. Look at what is being done in that space. Begin researching the proposals and projects which are bring brought forward now, particularly in the areas of transhumanism, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and nanotechnology. Listen to the years of speeches, made by tech leaders. Listen to the words they have used, the plans and promises they have made. Start with the fact that Bill Gates called his vaccine, "the Final Solution." That was not a mistake. Wake up.

Do not only consider the sources you usually consult. Examine the companies involved. Read their Websites. Do not do this to criticize the anti-vaxxers or the moronic, racist populists and conservatives. Stop relying on outdated political ideologies and rhetoric, which were designed to enslave you and keep you asleep, trapped in the false emancipation of hating the other half of the political population. Look into these questions now, as if for the first time, because if you do not, your own life, as an individual, will be destroyed.

Pitted against these authoritative voices are alternative voices, like the Youtuber above. It is not these contending mainstream and alternative media actors who will profit or lose, based on your decision over whom to believe - it is you, directly. Do your research. Read and listen widely, not just in the places you are accustomed to seek information. You must wake up.

Imagine the picture presented in Robert Browning's 1844 poem, Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came, about which I have blogged here.

Childe Roland is a poem about a knight, cut off from his company, all of whom have been picked off, one by one. This knight is the last of his companions. In despair and isolation, he comes to a crossroads, where a smirking, sinister guardian of the road encourages the knight to take the wrong turn: "My first thought was, he lied in every word." The knight ends up at the Dark Tower, and all around him, there are ear-splitting warnings, screaming at him. He is deaf and blind, but in a sudden moment, he hears the alarms and recognizes that he has nearly wandered into the heart of darkness.

Into the Heart of Darkness

As the technocrats push humanity toward the heart of darkness, at double time, and drive us forward with crowbars and sticks, we may well ask: why do they keep going? They know that they are pushing everything past the point of no return. Some of these moguls and tech designers have even had moments of doubt. Why are they so convinced that there are problems, yes, but we must do this anyway? Hurry, hurry, hurry, we must do this now. There is no time to debate. There is no time to pause and contemplate. Their breathless rush is a warning sign that something is wrong.

Political and media authorities, and the tech leaders behind them, do this on purpose so that the global public cannot wake up and question them. We will be given no time or space to consider whether or not the technocratic course and transhumanist cybernetic immersion is healthy and justified. The time to consider these questions was in the independent media, from 2005 to 2019. If you did not use that time wisely, then you will have to wake up quickly, and you must wake up now.

Coronavirus Fragments 13: The Final Solution

Image Source: Scientific American.

This week: controversy everywhere, as several themes emerged. The mainstream narrative about the pandemic is failing to gel into a publicly-accepted consensus. Different commentators expect this crisis to continue over time in multiple parts and waves.
  • Continued discussion on virus origins
  • Seriousness of COVID19 and treatment controversies
  • Loss of rights and freedoms, fear of deep state 'plandemic,' extended lockdown debates; Sweden as the alternative example (thanks to -B.)
  • Ongoing revelations about 'deep state' prior to the outbreak, with potential, unrecoverable embarrassments for famous, powerful people. Revelations of crimes have been coming too close for comfort, e.g. Epstein case and exposure of connected figures like Bill Gates
  • Bill Gates, vaccine debates and controversies
  • China's strategic position in global politics, Chinese empire in Africa
  • Financial and economic collapse, starvation, debates on alternatives including digital currency
  • Artificial Intelligence, big data, nanotech, weaponized robots and drones finally ready for mass release
  • Banned and censored discussions on coincidental roll-out of 5G fast connectivity, possibly enabling AI and nanotech operations, main 5G whistleblower 'leak'
Some say that this crisis will be used as a catalyst to replace the old system with a new, AI-driven simulacrum of society, a transhumanist fascist technocracy, which will depend on turning the world population into nanobot-vaccinated cyborgs. I will discuss the problem of conscience, consciousness, transhumanism, AI and the pandemic in a different post. Here are some other highlights.

China 2.0 in Africa

Pay Back Time For Chines In Africa, As Africans Discovers China Recolonization Strategies (29 April 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

All week, the online news outlet, Voice TV Nigeria, has been lamenting the lack of unity and leadership among African countries, while complaining that the Chinese want to build an empire in Africa.

This stance reflects a conspiracy theory I mentioned in my previous post, namely, that the coronavirus was a bioweapon manufactured by Chinese scientists to depopulate Africa (see below). The hypothetical aim of the Chinese, having spent the last decade building African infrastructure with the blessings of the UN, was a take over the continent and to turn it into China 2.0. Supposedly, the nCov experiment blew up in the faces of Chinese scientists and was accidentally released by them out of the Wuhan biolab. Alternatively, it was intentionally released by non-CCP Chinese or non-Chinese intelligence agents, and the Wuhan biolab was framed. The latter actors were supposedly placed in Wuhan at the World Military Games, 18-27 October 2019. If there is any credibility to these deep dark rumours, then the non-Chinese intentional release of the virus in Wuhan was retribution for, and prevention of, Chinese plans in Africa.

The Final Solution

Bill Gates: Global Innovation Is The Key To Achieving A Return To Normal (24 April 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

Bill Gates had an interview with Stephen Colbert on 24 August 2020, in which he stated that his vaccine was "the final solution." Colbert suggested that maybe they shouldn't use that term. Gates cackled, "Good point." The already-riled Internet, whose anons and trolls despise Gates, erupted in rage and began producing hundreds of videos on Gates's past, his motivations, his family, his real intentions. Colbert also stated: "If you don't save our lives, you can't control our brains."

MUST SEE - OUTRAGEOUS! "If you Don't Save Our Lives You Can't CONTROL Our Brains" Colbert to Gates! (26 April 2020). Video Source: Youtube.

Gates also stated that we are only now dealing with Pandemic One. Pandemic Two, when it arrives, will be likely a bioterrorist attack. This will be followed, presumably, by Gates's 'final solution.' Gates aroused more criticism because he just bought a new house (USD $43 million), but not a new yacht, despite rumours.

The blue-pilled public believes that anons dislike Gates because the latter are God-fearing, superstitious, anti-science morons. The discussion is rather more complicated than that, since anons fear that nanotech dust will be placed inside vaccines.

Coronavirus: TikTok, TikTok, The Clock is Ticking

The 2012 Olympics in London, opening ceremony. Image Source: Daily Mail.

This week, the Canadian government is considering criminalizing unofficial discussions about the coronavirus, i.e. anything that the government labels as nCov or COVID19 misinformation or disinformation, potentially including any discussion that the virus is lab-made. CBC:
"The federal government is considering introducing legislation to make it an offence to knowingly spread misinformation that could harm people, says Privy Council President Dominic LeBlanc.

LeBlanc told CBC News he is interested in British MP Damian Collins's call for laws to punish those responsible for spreading dangerous misinformation online about the COVID-19 pandemic.

LeBlanc said he has discussed the matter already with other cabinet ministers, including Justice Minister David Lametti. If the government decides to follow through, he said, it could take a while to draft legislation.

'Legislatures and Parliaments are meeting scarcely because of the current context of the pandemic, so it's not a quick solution, but it's certainly something that we would be open [to] as a government,' said LeBlanc. ...

'Extraordinary times require extraordinary measures and it is about protecting the public,' he said.

'This is not a question of freedom of speech. This is a question of people who are actually actively working to spread disinformation, whether it's through troll bot farms, whether [it's] state operators or whether it's really conspiracy theorist cranks who seem to get their kicks out of creating havoc.' ...

More recently, said Collins, the misinformation has shifted to conspiracy theories about what triggered the pandemic — claims that it was cooked up in a lab, for example. A conspiracy theory claiming the disease is caused by 5G wireless signals prompted attacks on wireless towers in the U.K.

The British government has set up a rapid response team to correct false information circulating online. ...

Collins is calling for legislation to combat online disinformation, perhaps modelled on Germany's laws governing online hate speech or France's legislation countering disinformation during election campaigns.

'It's such a serious public emergency that I think for someone to knowingly, willingly and at scale and maliciously spread this content should be an offence,' he said.

'And equally for the tech companies, if it is highlighted to [them] that someone is doing this and they don't act against them doing it, then it should be an offence for them to have failed to act — they would have failed in their duty of care.' ...

'I think it would be reasonable to enact with the RCMP, with our security officials and some public officials, a team to monitor disinformation and have the power to shut it down so it does not interfere with the efforts of our frontline medical workers,' said Angus.

'We need to be taking all measures right now because we don't know how long we're going to be in this crisis.'"
In light of the Canadian agreement with British calls to censor the idea that the virus came from a lab, i.e. the Wuhan Institute of Virology, I would like to point out that the Canadian government is currently funding individuals who are working at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. Some people would consider this to be a conflict of interest.

The Canadian federal government has just dedicated CAD $27 million to nCov research. See the document archived here. Under the auspices of the University of Alberta, nearly CAD $1 million ($828,046) is being devoted to diagnostic testing in China. Wuhan-related funding was brought to light by Canadian vlogger, Frank Vaughan. If discussion of 'disinformation' like this is criminalized, it will become impossible to hold governments accountable, and any attempt to do so will potentially become a criminal act. As a writer based in Canada, I am following this development. I will address this issue in an upcoming post.

Disclaimer: everything I list below is not necessarily reflective of 'my opinion' or 'my personal belief' simply because I post it. Repostings and summaries do not constitute my endorsements of that information.

My approach on this blog is not to take a side, but to collect information, images and videos as artefacts of 21st century history. As I have stated on this page, this blog is a unique, self-conceived project in writing what I call 'real time history,' or historical research and writing as affected by the accelerated timelines of 21st century technology. This project is the basis for a future book on this topic.

From a historian's point of view, this pandemic has been horrific. I have personally witnessed important historical testimonies, evidence, documents, and videos disappear off the Internet from one moment to another. I have seen officials stating what I know to be outright lies. I have also noted that in China, real discussion among citizens and the collection of eye witness accounts migrated to closed chatrooms. These forums became private newsrooms, accessible only to members. In December 2019, Chinese doctors began talking in code on social media to evade censorship.

I have also seen the authoritarian imposition of a top-down monolithic narrative (which is arbitrary and changeable, chained to policy, but divorced from realistic discovery and scientific discussion), and the maltreatment of online critics through censorship, deplatforming, shadow-banning, demonetization, and erasure of information. I will comment on the silencing and disappearances of Chinese medics in a separate post. I have previously written about human rights and historical and literary accounts of disappeared persons, here and here.

There were similar scenes in China at the same point in the pandemic. PHILADELPHIA MAN DRAGGED OFF BUS BY THE POLICE FOR NOT WEARING A FACE MASK (13 April 2020). Video Source: Bitchute.

There are serious breaches of laws and human rights taking place in the name of the pandemic. To speak to the spirit of these dictates, I would remind everyone of the following point as this crisis unfolds:
  • To all tech leaders and workers, bureaucrats, politicians, military, police, medical workers, bank employees, and other essential workers: an illegal order that is labeled 'legal' it is still illegal. If you are told on the fly under new pandemic ordinances to silence, erase the personal information or the work of, intimidate, invade the homes of, abduct, injure, imprison, torture, medicate, vaccinate, tag, trace, tattoo, euthanize, or kill your fellow citizens in any way which you know violates your professional oaths, citizens' rights, the constitutions of your countries, the Common Law, the Civil Law, the International Declaration of Human Rights, or the Laws of War, do not do it. Once again: do not do it. No matter who is giving you the order, no matter how legitimate they seem in the moment, you will later be held accountable under true legality.

If you think this is extreme, look up Rex 84. Wiki:
"Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, was a classified scenario and drill developed by the United States federal government to detain large numbers of United States citizens deemed to be 'national security threats', in the event that the president declared a National Emergency. The plan was first revealed in detail in a major daily newspaper by reporter Alfonso Chardy in the July 5, 1987 edition of the Miami Herald. Possible reasons for such a roundup were reported to be widespread opposition to a U.S. military invasion abroad, such as if the United States were to directly invade Central America. To combat what the government perceived as 'subversive activities', the plan also authorized the military to direct ordered movements of civilian populations at state and regional levels."
There are many debates about COVID19 symptoms and treatment. Perhaps the most notable of these is New York doctor, Cameron Kyle-Sidell, who is speaking online from clinical experience.

Coronavirus: The Prestige of Censorship

Still from The Prestige (2006). Reproduced under Fair Use. Image Source: 3d Dog Script.

To quote the Christopher Nolan film, The Prestige (2006), every magic trick has three acts: the pledge, the turn, and the prestige. In the pledge, the magician shows you something ordinary. In the turn, the magician makes that ordinary thing do something extraordinary, like making it disappear. But in magic, it's not enough to make something disappear. You have to bring it back. This final illusion is the prestige.

The Prestige Every Magic Trick Has Three Parts (11 January 206). Video Source: Youtube.

Using a trick in which the magician makes a canary disappear, The Prestige explained how magic works. The trick takes something away and brings it back. How does it do this? The video below shows the grisly truth. The original canary is killed by the magician and replaced by a duplicate living bird, an imposter. It looks like the original bird is recovered. But the thing that is brought back is not the same thing that disappeared. It only looks that way.

The Prestige: Hiding In Plain Sight (24 February 2012). Video Source: Youtube.

Information about the coronavirus pandemic has something of a magician's prestige about it. Whatever we lose now, we will lose for good. When it comes back, it will not be the same thing, even though it will look identical. This week, nCov's competing narratives divided between:
  • Governmental and mainstream media: the pledge
  • Real alternative media: the turn
  • Fake alternative media (in fact, governmental): the prestige
In our current situation, the 'canary' being made to disappear is the original alternative media, and the magician is governmental control.

Pandemic Chats in the Darkness 6: NCov Herd Immunity, A Prelude to War?

Image Source: 4chan.

This post reviews recent information from governments and the Internet Underground to understand what the nCov virus is and how different governments are responding to it. It may become clear why some leaders are taking controversial actions. I am considering the following factors:
  • Is nCov lab-made?
  • Two strains of the nCov virus

NCov: A Chinese Boxes Problem

If we intend to survive, we need to understand nCov without personal prejudices clouding our judgement. Challenge everything you thought was real. NCov is a Chinese boxes problem. Go deeper, go higher, go outside your normal frames of reference.

A couple of days ago, I spoke to a dear friend in respirology who was about to enter clinical settings to combat COVID19 in London, UK. I wish him all strength and protection. In speaking to him, I was concerned. He is a top trained and extremely intelligent medical professional. However, based on research for this blog, I believe he was mis- or under-informed. I think this has happened with a lot of medics, because policy-makers want them to stay in place as the nCov tsunami hits. If they knew the truth of the situation, how many would remain to face the onslaught? I am not questioning their moral values or stamina. I am suggesting that they may deliberately not have been told the whole story.

NCov and COVID19 present a Chinese boxes problem. Solve the obvious challenges, and they keep revealing more complicated issues.

My friend thought the nCov virus arose from Chinese people eating bats and snakes and pangolins. But even Nature (doi: 10.1038/d41586-020-00548-w) stated on 26 February 2020 that the "mystery deepens" on the source of the virus.

I asked my friend whether he thought the nCov virus came out of a lab. He denied this, since he felt that if it was bioengineered, it would be a controlled pathogen. There would be a cure. It never occurred to him that there might be a cure, but that it is concealed or is not being universally implemented.

I argued that doctors are strongly rewarded by the system, and so they do not understand, until it is too late, just how insane and arcane a political system can be. They might complain about red tape, but as favoured actors in an already corrupt environment, their sight is occluded when they view the true face of power.

Medics are accustomed to structure. They are used to having authority. They are given enough resources and social respect to exist comfortably as individuals. Having been so encouraged, they never imagine that they could be considered expendable. They cannot see how they could be exploited to support operations which are much, much larger than they are. They are not trained to recognize when states are entering into conditions of strategic conflict and how they - like the medics in World War II Nazi Germany and imperial Japan - might be co-opted to serve purposes of genocidal policy-makers. I am not saying that our current policy-makers are genocidal. I am saying that we have historical examples of that fact in the past. It is not outside the scope of possibility.

Under normal conditions, doctors have also almost never - except by personal choice - had to operate in total alienation from the system, or in deinstitutionalized settings. I spoke to my friend about ways to operate successfully in situations which cannot be rationalized or controlled, yet which are not necessarily chaotic. I mentioned the Buddhist concept of the 'pathless path.' It provides a guideline for flying blind. He disliked that, and said that the pathless path sounded like a problem that needed more big data. He prefers a quantified reality.

To challenge the quantified reality, I asked him to consider the pangs of conscience experienced late in life by one of the best-known policy-makers in the world. I referred my friend to the words of the former US Foreign Secretary Robert McNamara (1916-2009), who visited Oxford when we were there.

McNamara, in his old age, struggled with the problem of the 'fog of war,' and insisted that we must devise rational guidelines in out-of-control situations and conflicts. He implored the students at Oxford to develop these guidelines. He was haunted by the fact that "reason has limits." Even with artificial intelligence and big data, we are mewling infants when we observe the mysteries and majesty of nature, including human nature. McNamara understood this, based on his experiences during the Vietnam War. A true advocate of mid-20th century quantification, standardized testing, and positivist thinking, McNamara concluded that extreme politics defies quantification, yet that form of politics must have rules of war. He yearned for larger architectures that made sense.

On 20 March 2020, an anon wrote to me about the rules of war:
"Coincidental that the pandemic is happening after reading the comment, 'The Geneva convention has been scrapped and biowarfare is on the menu.'"
I wasn't aware that the Geneva Convention has been scrapped, but governments have certainly been ignoring it. We can therefore ask if this pandemic is a function of Great Power politics.

Pandemic Chats in the Darkness 5: Two Strains

Click to enlarge. Image Source: 4chan.

The thread above from 4chan features a supposed Chinese leaker explaining the meaning of the L strain (lethal) and S strain (safe) on 17 March 2020. Bear in mind that everything in this post could be lies and disinformation; for example, both strains could be deadly, or their virulence reversed. However, MSM sources have indeed described these two strains of the coronavirus and have been puzzling over this fact, given that the WHO stated there has been no significant mutation.

Warnings against Reading Weaponized Disinformation

My posting of this information does not constitute my belief in this information, nor my desire to spread fear. This 'Pandemic Chats' series is published here to make people aware of the scope of discussion. I do not know whether this is a milestone in the history of real bioweapons in public health or a milestone in the evolution of weaponized online propaganda. Or both.

There are good reasons why you should read this information with extreme caution and discernment. It is possible that the virus is a bioweapon or it may have arisen naturally. Either way, the Chinese government may perceive this outbreak as a bio-weaponized attack.

As such, the coronavirus epidemic might invite Chinese revenge. That retribution may come first in the form of a wave of Internet disinformation warfare, intended to spread panic and violence.

Read this information at your own risk. Treat it as a toxic waste neo-cultural cyber-event. Examine it with the sober reserve of an anthropologist. Coronavirus rumours may be an extreme new type of online propaganda. Do not presume the information is true.

But also understand that if these are real leakers and they are telling the truth to the Internet Underground to relieve their consciences, then the world is now a different place.

I cannot assess the veracity, sources or accuracy of this (dis)information. Some of these fragments and citations refer to legitimate medical publications, which you can read, if you have time. If the rumours are true, you don't have time.

Coronavirus: The Garden of Earthly Delights

Image Source: 4chan.

This is a surreal moment, not a funny one. Plague humour takes on a Bosch-like quality. Bosch depicted sin as a catalyst for social breakdown in his Garden of Earthly Delights. His famous triptych symbolically portrayed a world letting go. That's the feeling now. Jokes get thrown in with intense news reports and crazy conspiracy theories. There is no clear narrative.

Paranoia and Priorities

Image Source: 4chan.

Crazy predictions, apparently from 2017 - or if you prefer - crazy disinfo. Click to enlarge. Image Source: 4chan.

The Internet Underground, as I have previously blogged, regards Aaron Swartz (1986-2013) as a Gen Y hero; rightly or not, they believe his death reflects deep corruption at MIT and Harvard. Image Source: 4chan.

As authorities respond to the spread of the coronavirus, public trust dissolves into paranoia. It is hard to trust officials when so many disturbing things were happening prior to this pandemic. Even with the best containment measures, governments and hospitals will not be able to contain the medical tsunami. Failures may be so catastrophic that they will look orchestrated or premeditated, even if they are not.

Combine that disaster with economic failure and restrictions on citizens' movements, communications, and activities, all on a stage set to sweep aside civil rights. An economic Gordian knot could be conveniently cut by means of the pandemic response. At the same time, the public will be immobilized and partly decimated. This is not a nice coincidence.

Even red-pilled and black-pilled anons are surprised. They nursed alienation from the 'normies,' whom they regard as wage slaves, for two decades. Anons' distrust of the establishment is so complete that they regard everything labeled 'good' as 'bad,' and vice versa. Yoichi Shimatsu's quotation above in relation to the late Aaron Swartz is emblematic of these priorities:
"Striking at the nerve center of the military-corporate-pharmaco-porno complex is an ethical duty not a crime, one of the few available means to defend constitutional law."
Anons cannot decide now whether soldiers are being shuttled around countrysides to help them in an eleventh-hour coup against Deep State actors - or if the military are ready to imprison dissenters in quarantine camps.

To some extent, this nervousness extends to the mainstream public, made worse by mixed messages from governments and media and the fact that this nCov crisis reminds everyone of 9/11. Compare a semi-official statement about tanks moving now into London, UK with a citizen's observation. Like 9/11, this pandemic will shape the global landscape for another twenty years. Like 9/11, the devastation will not just be measured in terms of loss of life. Unless there are serious, far-reaching changes to shift things away from the current technocratic drive to control the very thoughts inside our heads, this pandemic will be remembered in terms of a powerful loss of faith in existing politics and society. That trend will probably overturn most systems of authority today, whose leaders assume that they will consolidate power through this crisis, not be flushed away by it.

"Harness Biology as Technology"

The public have good reason to doubt the integrity of the global establishment. Things were hardly ideal before the pandemic began. Below is a screenshot of a 12 November 2015 report in Nature about bat virus research at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. It is one of the reasons anons - and the Chinese government - claim that the coronavirus had a (partially) American source. There are also reports about an explosion at a Russian biolab, known as VECTOR, from September 2019. There is a Harvard connection, and a Canadian connection, to this crisis.

The main thing to take away from this speculation is that it is not all paranoia and disinformation. Gain-of-function research was certainly taking place in top level biolabs over the past few years. Chinese scientific publications from Wuhan were full of it. The money was there for it and the Chinese were not restraining their scientists with red tape or regulations. There was an ethical debate about reckless behaviour in this field within the scientific community.

This is before we get to highly questionable genetic experimentation with tools like CRISPR. And it is also before we get to strange innovations in quantum computing, artificial intelligence, biotech, and nanotech, all of which overlap in the worst ways with genetic experiments. It is easy to dismiss lunatic conspiracy theorists who have been rambling for years about vaccines, chemtrails, and retweeting Julian Assange's warnings against smart dust. But they have a point: DARPA has stated that its goal is to "harness biology as technology."

Public fear is justified, because the scientific and tech communities have not restrained themselves. They have not moved forward in careful ways. They have been held back only by the availability of funding and legal jurisdictions. No one appears to have lost sleep over whether certain experiments should even have been attempted. Lines are and were being crossed all over the place. Researchers have been arrogant and deceitful in their practices and this time, the Petri dish blew up in their faces.

At the same time, specialists in the arts and humanities have failed. They normally act as critics to indicate a larger moral context when science, technology and engineering get out of control. Gone are the greats like Jacob Bronowski, who could stand in a human ash pool at Auschwitz and state: "we have to cure ourselves of the itch for absolute knowledge and power." Bronowski warned repeatedly that knowledge must move forward with integrity, and that anyone who did not pair integrity with knowledge would lose the light of true understanding and any power and authority that might accompany that understanding. Only Bronowski could have pleaded for the integrity of science in terms of the Auguries of Innocence by William Blake:
"To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour"
I discussed Bronowski's assessment of physics in the 20th century as an "immortal work" in my 8 April 2011 post, Worlds within Worlds.

The Jacob Bronowskis are gone. The most vocal practitioners in the arts and humanities have become compromised by politicized navel-gazing. Unlike researchers in the sciences, they barely get funded anyway. And when they do, it is for the worst reasons, to bolster Franken-science with Orwellian goodthink. I get the impression that the only permitted 'soft' fields around cutting edge 'hard' scientific research are espionage, finance, politics, and marketing. The classic commentator from the humanities, who once played a crucial role in scientifically- and technologically-advanced societies, has devolved into a controlled environmental activist pawn like Greta Thunberg. At least the pandemic has mercifully forced her off the world stage.

As an individual, I have tried on this blog to meet the moral obligation to society of a person based in the humanities and the arts, by holding up a philosophical mirror to the Millennial march progress. In the past two decades, there are a lot of bloggers and vloggers in the alt-media who have also done this, as well as some trolls and hacktivists.

In order to grasp the myriad of scientific and technological experiments, tests, trials and research groups which were underway at a single point in time, I selected one month as an example. In February 2016, I tried to track down as many science and tech reports as I could in the mainstream English-speaking press or in institutional press releases. I summarized my findings in one post: Science and Tech: Headlines and History in February 2016.

I barely scratched the surface of what was currently being pursued in labs and test facilities in the United States, let alone worldwide. The footage I remember above all was of a Cape Cod warehouse, in which DARPA was repeatedly flying small, very expensive quadcopter drones into cement walls. I had hoped to make this type of post a monthly digest, but there was simply too much information for me to catalogue. It was overwhelming. I reflected on this big picture in the post, The New Millennium's Gothic Moment.

Surreal Reality: The Garden of Earthly Delights

Notice that mainstream reporting on nCov and COVID29 consistently draws attention away from any moral failing on the part of the scientific community. Were researchers playing with fire in Promethean bioweapons projects? Rather than broach these concerns, the MSM fail in their duty, and paper over the cracks. They fixate on pandemic numbers and manage public behaviour. No one is allowed to get to the bottom of preexisting problems which may have lain at the root of what has occurred.

The only reason this comes as a surprise to the public is that we were not paying attention, and we trusted our governments and universities to monitor top level biolabs. That wasn't happening.

As a result of the lies and cover-ups, no one knows what is really going on. We can't get a real grip on this thing. No one is being held accountable. We could even be in the early stages of World War III, and be blind to it. A Canadian anon expressed the Underground's sentiment:
"we can only speculate as to whether coronavirus is a nothing burger or not. if you trust the media, or politicians, or the corrupted scientific establishment you are naive. but you cant totally discredit them either. we can just speculate and guess as to whats going on because everyone everywhere is a lying piece of shit.

should you be worried or not i dunno, flip a coin, 50/50

maybe this is the best possible response, maybe its the worst possible response. feel free to speculate but dont pretend like you know fuck all, you are just a dumb fucking peasant like everyone else and you dont have access to accurate information. who the fuck does?"
This uncertainty creates a surreal atmosphere. No one knows what exactly is happening in this pandemic, how it started, and where it is going. This has led to disillusionment about some leaders, and to jokes and criticism at their expense, which they may or may not deserve. More seriously, it has led to accusations between Chinese and US governments about the origins of the nCov virus.

An American veteran's response to Lijian Zhao on 4chan: "dude when I was in the army there wasnt even enough money to fart outside let alone poison a bunch of bats in wuhan." Where the uncertainty about reality goes, actual reality follows.
