Humans are good at some things. Computers are good at other things. But what is it that people are good at?
I w as born in In that same year, I had my cultural and mystical awakenings. During my second year of college, I had my first existential crisis and a paranormal event changed my studies from science to business. I s till held my energy dreams, however, and ineight years after that first paranormal event, I had a second one that suddenly caused me to move up the coast from Los Angeles to Seattle, where I landed in the middle of what is arguably the greatest attempt yet made to bring alternative energy to the American marketplace.
That effort was killed by the local electric industrywhich saw our technology as a threat to its revenues and profits, and my wild ride began. The owner of the Seattle business left the state to rebuild his effort.
I followed him to Boston and soon became his partner. My use of "radical" intends to convey the original " going to the root " meaning. He would never see the energy industry the same way again after his radicalization also called " awakening " in Seattle, but he had more radicalization ahead of him.
The d ay after I arrived in Boston, we began to pursue what is today called free energy, or new energy, which is abundant and harmlessly produced energy generated with almost no operating cost. We attracted the interest of a legendary and shadowy group while we were in Boston. I have called that group the Global Controllers and others have different terms for them.
However, they are not the focus of my writings and efforts. I regard them as a symptom of our collective malaisenot a cause. Our fate is in our hands, not theirs. Inwe moved our business to Ventura, Californiawhere I had been raised, before the sledgehammer in Boston could fall on us.
We moved because I had connected us with technologies and talent that made our free energy ideas potentially feasible. Our public awareness efforts became highly successful and we were building free energy prototypes.
In earlyour efforts were targeted by the local authorities, again at the behest of energy interests, both local and global. In a surprise raid in which the authorities blatantly stole our technical materialsmere weeks after those same authorities assured us that we were not doing anything illegalmy radicalization began.
Soon after my partner refused their offer, he was arrested with a million dollar bail and our nightmare began. It helped inspire me to sacrifice my life in an attempt to free my partner.
My gesture incredibly worked, in the greatest miracle that I ever witnessed. I helped free my partner, but my life had been ruined by the events ofand in I left Ventura and never returned.
I had been radicalized " awakened "and I then spent the next several years seeking understanding of what I had lived through and why the world worked starkly differently from how I was taught that it did. I began the study and writing that culminated in publishing my first website inwhich was also when I briefly rejoined my former partner after he was released from prison, after the courts fraudulently placed him there and prison officials repeatedly put him in position to be murdered.
The Global Controllers then raised their game to new, sophisticated levels and I nearly went to prison. As I discovered the hard way, contr ary to my business school indoctrinationthere is little that resembles a free market in the USA, particularly in its energy industry, and there has never been a truly free marketa real democracy, a free pressan objective historya purely pursued scientific methodor any other imaginary constructs that our dominant institutions promote.
They may all be worthy ideals, but none has existed in the real world. Soon af ter I moved from Ventura, I met a former astronaut who was hired by NASA with a Mars mission in mind and was investigating the free energy field.
We eventually became colleagues and co-founded a non-profit organization intended to raise public awareness of new energy. In the spring ofI spent a few days with my former free energy partner and, like my astronaut colleague, he had also been run out of the USA after mounting an effort around high-MPG carburetor technology.
Every American president since Ronald Reagan knew my partner by namebut they proved to be rather low-ranking in the global power structure. My astro naut colleague investigated the UFO phenomenon early in his adventures on the frontiers of science and nearly lost his life immediately after refusing an "offer" to perform classified UFO research for the American military.
It became evident that the UFO and free energy issues were conjoined. A faction of the global elite demonstrated some of their exotic and sequestered technologies to a close fellow traveler, which included free energy and antigravity technologies.
My astronaut colleague was involved with the same free energy inventor that some around me were, who invented a solid-state free energy prototype that not only produced a million times the energy that went into it, but it also produced antigravity effects.
It was no conspiracy theory, but what my fellow travelers and I learned at great personal cost, which was regularly fatal. My former partner is the Indiana Jones of the free energy field, but I eventually realized that while it was awe-inspiring to witness his efforts, one man with a whip and fedora cannot save humanity from itself.
I eventually took a different path from both my partner and astronaut colleague, and one fruit of that direction is this essay. Not only was the public largely indifferent to what we were attempting, but those attracted to our efforts usually either came for the spectacle or were opportunists who betrayed us at the first opportunity.
As w e weathered attacks from the localstatenationaland global power structures, such treacherous opportunities abounded. The antics of the global elites are of minor importance; the enemy is us.A View from David Byrne Eliminating the Human We are beset by—and immersed in—apps and devices that are quietly reducing the amount of meaningful interaction we have with each other.
Wolves have litters of same-age puppies which the mother leaves in the care of another adult while she hunts; elk give birth to calves which are able to stand up and follow the herd within a matter of minutes.
Primates, including human beings, have one offspring at a time which the mother carries with her while she seeks food or works, often sharing .
1 AN OPINION COMPOSITION When you are writing an essay that asks you to discuss a topic or give your opinion on a question, it is important to organize your thoughts and present your arguments clearly and to.
The table below presents an abbreviated geologic time scale, with times and events germane to this essay. Please refer to a complete geologic time scale when this one seems inadequate. Morpheus: The Matrix is everywhere, it is all around us, even now in this very room. You can see it when you look out your window, or you turn on your television.
You can feel it when you go to work, when you go to church, when you pay your taxes. The technological singularity (also, simply, the singularity) is the hypothesis that the invention of artificial superintelligence (ASI) will abruptly trigger runaway technological growth, resulting in unfathomable changes to human civilization.
According to this hypothesis, an upgradable intelligent agent (such as a computer running software .
