TIMES, TIME, AND HALF A TIME. A HISTORY OF THE NEW MILLENNIUM.

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.

Coronavirus Stories: Thermonuclear Pandemic Level Bad



Regarding the coronavirus (2019-nCoV) outbreak, the following information is circulating, according to tweets and videos reproduced here. Bear in mind that some may be disinformation, faked or staged information, or wrong information; also bear in mind that it took approximately six weeks from Patient Zero's case in Wuhan to explode into an epidemic. First cases are now appearing in the USA and Canada:

Wuhan: Leaks and Speculation


Day 1 In Real Resident Evil City Video Leaks-Wuhan-People Fell Down,Doctor Broke Down.Heart Breaking (). Video Source: Youtube.

As the coronavirus spreads from China to other countries through airports, speculation about the origins of the virus proceeds apace. Leaked phone videos are filtering out of Wuhan, capital of Hubei province, the locked-down epicentre, which suggest that the outbreak is much worse than the Chinese government is admitting. Twitter commenters, who are poring over videos, are convinced that the outbreak has also been going on for longer than the stated start date of 12 December 2019:
"This is no pneumonia. They had a breach of a bioweapons facility. Hemorrhagic fever on the loose. Think Ebola type shit and other pathogens. Look at the blood."
And:
"It looks like he coughed up blood. we've been seeing videos of this happening to chinese people for months now... just how long has the virus actually been around?"
Some trolls and Anons distrust any media coming out of China, and assume that even leaks are intentional and government-vetted. It is difficult to tell who made these videos, because real leakers would have to obscure their identities and source origin to get past the electronic Chinese firewall.




The most concerning of these leaked videos is that of a doctor who breaks down on the telephone to superiors or colleagues at another hospital in the city. He repeatedly yells: "What did you guys do?" He accuses them of not accepting enough patients.



Image Source: Twitter.

Internet conspiracy theorists are convinced that Wuhan is the site of a bioweapons research lab, the National Biosafety Laboratory, which opened in 2017. This comes via gossip that there are people in Wuhan who work there and are telling loved ones abroad about their work.


In the footage above, notice the blood around the collapsed man's head. Trolls and Anons believe that this disease is a manmade virus that was accidentally or deliberately released. Conspiracists are digging through records of patents and vaccines and are examining suspicious film scenes, which they believe show predictive programming. They are placing into this context past comments from notable figures such as Prince Philip, who said in 1988:
"In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, to contribute something to solving overpopulation." 
The main investigation of this type is being undertaken by someone with the Twitter handle, OctoberReignz, who joined Twitter in October 2019.

A Journal of the Plague Year



For today, hear the full audiobook of Daniel Defoe's (1660-1731) novel account of the plague in London in 1665, A Journal of the Plague Year. It was first published in 1722. Although medical standards have changed, people's psychology has not. The book reveals how people react to a full-blown epidemic.

A New Moon and an Old Omen


Image Source: Straits Times.

There is a new moon in Aquarius on Friday 24 January 2020 (4:42 p.m. Eastern; 9:42 p.m. UTC). Astrologers expect a purge of what has been stagnant or stuck, a jackhammering of old deals and agreements, followed by disruptive, shocking, crazy changes, and a subsequent, exhausted recovery through recognition of suppressed truths. After that, there will be a series of brand new developments in completely uncharted territory. Venus is extremely bright in the southwestern night sky and will have a rare conjunction with Neptune.

Image Source: Chinese New Year.

The tone is echoed by the MSM: this is - could be - the calm before the storm. On 25 January, much of Asia, and Asians abroad, will mark the lunar New Year of the Rat, already overshadowed by its potential for a sparking a coronavirus pandemic.

The conspiracy theories about the virus began to swirl yesterday, when Green Pill Youtuber Jordan Sather found a 2015 coronavirus patent.

Politics, Ideology, and the Technosphere 2: Anarchists and Luciferians


Image Source: The Transmetropolitan Review via The Conversation.

This year, I am presenting a series on ideology and the technosphere. The series rejects mainstream political discourse and returns to first principles, historical background, and online trends to deconstruct the current evolution of politics.

Thus far and in today's post, I have identified the following components of tech-oriented politics:
  • New political terms, like the Red Pill and Black Pill
  • The weaponization of political virtues, morals, ideals, and values, leading to inversions of those values in practice
  • Internet dynamics and unpredictability
  • New moral, spiritual, or ethical frameworks of common reference
Positive Values, Negative Outcomes: Our Inverted World

Political virtues, moral labels, and positive platforms contrast with real outcomes, whether in everyday reality or online practice. There is a vast gap between what people say they are doing politically and what actually happens. On the Internet, this gap is exposed and described, especially among the alt media and conspiracy theorists, as corruption.

Some Deepfakes Shine, And Some Don't


Jim Carrey DeepFake [VFX Comparison] (3 September 2019). Video Source: Youtube.

Above, see a video crafted by the Youtuber Ctrl Shift Face, who uses facial image data from films to replace one actor's face with another. In this case, data from Jim Carrey's many films were used to cast him as a Jack Nicholson Doppelgänger in Stanley Kubrick's The Shining (1980). The title of this post is, of course, taken from Mr. Hallorann's dialogue in the film.

When one considers how many cameras (including our own virtual assistants, computers, tablets, smartphones, smart TVs and other gadgets) follow us all day long, one can see that our facial data are being collected for future applications. Digital facial recognition and tracking are already entrenched in China as tools of state control.

This extraordinarily dangerous technology shows how deepfakes could be used to manipulate politics and elections, falsify the news, blackmail people, destroy reputations, and essentially control anyone and everyone, anywhere. I will discuss this tech further in future posts. Below, see all the videos related to the deepfake Shining. If the playlist does not play automatically, you can watch it here.

Intermission

It is time for an intermission. I have called the 2010s a 'decade of disillusionment,' when many of us lost our faith in authoritative realities, due to revelations of corruption, violence, mass manipulation, and exploitation. It is hard to know what to believe as we leave those years behind.

Supposedly normal. Image Source: Oprah Winfrey Instagram via reddit and 4chan.

I miss the days before that decade, when I believed in official reality. I miss the days when I thought that Kevin Spacey was just a great actor and Tom Hanks played a nice Boomer Everyman. Now we live in an alternate reality where Spacey kills people with kindness. And Hanks publishes creepy photos of lost gloves and baby shoes, whether they are on streets, parks, or abandoned in the desert. We do not have to look very far before we encounter photos like the one above - freely posted by the celebrities themselves! This is no whistle-blower's work. This is symbolism, rubbed in the faces of the uninitiated mob. But it is so blatant that even the uninitiated know there is something twisted, ugly, and wrong about it.

It's time for a breather from the theatrics in which the mass media, political media, and social media are weaponized against audience populations. It is time to collect ourselves and get our bearings. It is time for an intermission.

Materialist Rhetoric: The Cosmic Indifference of Alien AI Gods


From Alan Moore's Lovecraftian comic, Providence. Image Source: Xataka.

This week, I am selecting vocabulary used by materialists to reveal their long game. Materialism here refers loosely to those who subscribe to secular and scientific values, that is, those who explore the world in the strictly physical sense.

I deconstruct some materialist values here, not to write an anti-scientific or technophobic screed, but to consider alternative approaches toward science and technology. I mean to show here that what we think of as 'rationalism,' 'secularism,' 'materialism,' 'science,' and 'technology' are social constructions, grounded in obsolete, 19th and 20th century modernist concepts of order and madness. I will discuss this historical background in future posts.

Can we build AI without losing control over it? | Sam Harris (19 October 2016). Video Source: Youtube.

In recent years, several tech leaders have come forward to predict the rise of artificial intelligence. The prediction rests on a definition of intelligence as 'information processing' and 'interactivity,' about which I have blogged here. Developers consider AI 'goal-setting' to be the same thing as human dreaming. The AI vocabulary projects machine processes onto human cognition, and removes the extra-sensory, the anti-materialistic, or any magical thinking that is otherwise undefined in physical terms.

If one adheres to this set of ideas, one removes emotional, moral and ethical concerns from intelligence. One ignores non-linear, lateral, interstitial, and other undefinable elements that are part of the purely human, non-mechanical experience. (Thanks to -D.)

Materialist Proposition 1: Progress is Worship, Expressed through Physical Augmentation of Natural Ability

Tech leaders like Geordie Rose, father of marketed quantum computers, adhere to a 19th century vision of 'progress.' They believe that history is an upward story of human and scientific expansion. We must develop bodies, societies and systems which transcend the limits of biology.

ideacity 2019 - Geordie Rose - Synthetic Minds, Cooperation and the Future of Humanity (21 June 2019). Video Source: Youtube.

In this view, the brain is a machine, which we will decode, mechanize and develop with the help of artificial intelligence. Because of its independent functions and the symbiotic assistance it will provide during our brain upgrades, the AI will appear to us like an alien god. Technologists admit this god will destroy our humanity, but that is acceptable, because the god will help one nation get ahead of another in the geopolitical balance of power. That, or the god will cure cancer.

Despite their supposed adherence to logical explanations, these technologists justify themselves through glib asides. They never ask if there is an alternative to 19th century scientific progress. They do not reflect on whether their political biases pose problems for their planning. They never consider whether the nation-state is a dated idea. They never refer to the evolutionary purpose which cancer may serve, about which I have blogged, here and here. They certainly never ask (at least publicly) if there are extra-physical aspects of human cognition, which cannot be simulated. It does not matter if the consequences of technologists' blind spots will result in species-wide slavery. In fact, that is the expected result.

The real question, then, concerns the developers' ambitions. A very small number of humans aim to control the machines that will control the bulk of humankind. XPRIZE founder Peter Diamandis remarked:
"Today, a group of 20 individuals empowered by the exponential growing technologies of AI and robotics and computers and networks and eventually nanotechnology can do what only nation states could have done before."
These humans will act, based on their limited intelligence and values. If the story of the AI as alien god is really a story about the ambitions of a tiny group of tech moguls and billionaires, we should identify the real beliefs of this group.

Materialist Rhetoric: The Splice


A rat embryo. Image Source: Science Pictures ltd/SPL via Science.

This week, I am highlighting vocabulary which is being used by materialists to explain their long term goals and beliefs. I will then expand on where all this is going. For today, a news headline from The Post Millennial: Japanese scientists to grow rat embryos spliced with 30 percent human DNA. The plan is to grow human organs inside animals, and the word 'splice' is equated with 'help.' The plan was explained in Nature on 26 July 2019:
"A Japanese stem-cell scientist is the first to receive government support to create animal embryos that contain human cells and transplant them into surrogate animals since a ban on the practice was overturned earlier this year.

Hiromitsu Nakauchi, who leads teams at the University of Tokyo and Stanford University in California, plans to grow human cells in mouse and rat embryos and then transplant those embryos into surrogate animals. Nakauchi's ultimate goal is to produce animals with organs made of human cells that can, eventually, be transplanted into people.

Until March, Japan explicitly forbade the growth of animal embryos containing human cells beyond 14 days or the transplant of such embryos into a surrogate uterus. That month, Japan’s education and science ministry issued new guidelines allowing the creation of human–animal embryos that can be transplanted into surrogate animals and brought to term. ...

Nakauchi says he plans to proceed slowly, and will not attempt to bring any hybrid embryos to term for some time. Initially, he plans to grow hybrid mouse embryos until 14.5 days, when the animal’s organs are mostly formed and it is almost to term. He will do the same experiments in rats, growing the hybrids to near term, about 15.5 days. Later, Nakauchi plans to apply for government approval to grow hybrid embryos in pigs for up to 70 days."

To Know What World We Live In: The Son of Sam


Untermyer Park, Yonkers, New York, USA. Image Source: Atlas Obscura.

For the past several years, I have participated in the Hallowe'en Countdown blogathon. I won't this year, due to personal matters. But I will touch on topics this month which were intended for the countdown. The first such issue concerns David Berkowitz's Son of Sam murders in 1976 and 1977 in New York City. A case summary is here. I have previously blogged about this case, here.

The Temple of Love in Untermyer Gardens. Image Source: Untapped Cities.

In an April 1977 letter left by Berkowitz near one of his murder scenes, the killer referred to himself as the 'Son of Sam': "I am a monster. I am the 'Son of Sam.'" Berkowitz later claimed that 'Sam' was his former neighbour, Sam Carr, and that 'Son of Sam' referred to Carr's demon-possessed dog. Others have speculated that 'Sam' referred to the USA as 'Uncle Sam.' The police offered the possessed dog story to the public, even though a psychiatrist who assessed Berkowitz believed that the killer knew the dog story was bunk.

Thus, at the heart of this case, the name which Berkowitz adopted for himself remains a mystery.

I noticed a curious coincidence in the Persian poem, The Shahnameh (شاهنامه) or The Book of Kings. Written by the poet Ferdowsi, it is the national epic of Iran; it took over thirty years to compose and has almost one thousand chapters. While the poem was completed around 1010 CE, it refers to the much earlier history of the Persian Empire in mythical and quasi-historical terms, from the dawn of time up to the Arab Islamic conquest. You can read the work in English translation, here and here.

There is a section in The Shahnameh entitled, Zāl, the Son of Sam, about an albino child who is rejected by his father, a warrior named Sam:
"No human being of this earth
Could give to such a monster birth;
He must be of the Demon race,
Though human still in form and face."
The father abandons the child on a mountaintop to die, where the baby is raised by Simurgh, the "Shah of birds." You can read the tale of Sam and his son Zaal in English prose translation here and here. Zaal becomes a Persian king who lives for three hundred years and watches his personal dynasty fail and die.

When Berkowitz adopted 'Son of Sam' as his alter ego, he may have been referring to Sam and Zaal in The Shahnameh, or to a corrupted derivative thereof adopted by New York City's hippie cultists.

Bitcoin's Satoshi Reveal and Genetic Feudalism: I



Another 'Faketoshi' debuted this week and tried to claim the mantle of the anonymous Bitcoin inventor, Satoshi Nakamoto. Crypto watchers scoffed. The reveal was a hopelessly amateurish LARP. Faketoshi claimed he lost his 980,000 Bitcoins in a crashed laptop and that he deliberately uses bad English. He also does not make major decisions without checking their symbolic representations in a Chaldean numerology machine - and in the Bible.

I read Faketoshi's three-part bulletin so that you don't have to. I concluded was that this was not a Satoshi reveal at all. Beneath the blather, it seemed more sinister, a coded announcement about how Bitcoin will be used with Big Data to enslave us.

Mind you, I'm someone who concluded that Grammarly is spyware to track thoughtcrimes in writers' drafts folders.


Faketoshi stated he was a Pakistani Brit who is and was brilliant, although in truth he is and was more of a generalist who knew how to hire brilliant people. He is confidently coming forward now after a suicidal depression.

He had his hakuna matata years (warning: Disney reference) while he worked for the NHS. He spent years pretending that Bitcoin didn't exist and that he didn't invent it. But now, he's making a comeback to take Bitcoin in an exciting new direction. To do this, he has legally changed his name from Bilal Khalid to James Caan, because he is the Godfather of Bitcoin.

For someone who claims he was born in 1978, the reveal was filled with tone deaf cultural references suspiciously relevant to Baby Boomers (the reveal was dedicated to Steve Jobs?), rather than a younger generation. Faketoshi's Chaldean numerology, with its Babylonian disinformation, seemed to come straight from some Illuminati mystery sweat lodge.

Wait. Did he say he worked for the NHS?
