It’s time to break up big tech, warns Artificial Intelligence pioneer – October 8, 2017

Image: It’s time to break up big tech, warns Artificial Intelligence pioneer

(Natural News) A pioneer in artificial intelligence says that the time has come to break up what he is calling “Big Tech” embodied by three principal AI leaders — Google, Facebook, and Apple — because they are becoming a “threat to democracy.”

As reported by Axios, the remarks by Joshua Bengio, a leader in the field, a professor at the University of Montreal and a member of the “Canadian Mafia” that broke new ground in machine learning — which is the foundation of AI — are noteworthy because of his influence throughout the industry.

But they are also significant because he and many of his peers all lead or consult for Big Tech’s AI programs.

“Concentration of wealth leads to concentration of power,” he said, as Axios reports. “That’s one reason why monopoly is dangerous. It’s dangerous for democracy.”

Bengio is a consultant for tech giant IBM. His colleagues Geoffrey Hinton and Yann LeCun also consult for Big Tech — Google and Facebook, respectively. And a protege of Hinton, Ruslan Salakhutdinov, runs Apple’s AI research program.

Since there are several companies involved in AI research, it’s not likely they would be subject to the U.S. Constitution’s prohibition on government-granted monopolies. But Bengio is correct in stating that the AI industry is becoming more concentrated.

In fact, Bengio said that continued concentration of resources, knowledge and talent among a few giant technology corporations is growing and that only government can act to prevent further consolidation. “We need to create a more level playing field for people and companies,” Bengio told Axios at an AI conference in Toronto recently.

The site noted further:

In recent years, Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft have amassed a towering lead in AI research. But now, they are subject to growing scrutiny because of their outsized influence on society, politics and the economy. I asked Bengio if the companies should be broken up. He harrumphed and responded that anti-trust laws should be enforced. “Governments have become so meek in front of companies,” he said.

“AI is a technology that naturally lends itself to a winner take all,” Bengio added. “The country and company that dominates the technology will gain more power with time. More data and a larger customer base gives you an advantage that is hard to dislodge. Scientists want to go to the best places. The company with the best research labs will attract the best talent. It becomes a concentration of wealth and power.”

Bengio is only the latest to warn about the dangers of AI in general, let alone the concentration of AI knowledge and research. (Related: Artificial Intelligence ‘more dangerous than nukes,’ warns technology pioneer Elon Musk.)

But tech experts aren’t the only ones warning about the rise of AI. Russia President Vladimir Putin recently predicted that whoever managed to perfect the technology could end up ruling the world. As reported by

Addressing students last week, Vladimir Putin said that there are legitimate concerns about AI and that its development will produce “colossal opportunities and threats that are difficult to predict now.”

Going further, Putin warned that “the one who becomes the leader in this sphere will be the ruler of the world.”

He added: “Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia but for all of humankind.”

Perhaps sensing the kind of power a company — or even a few companies — could amass if they became the first to fully develop AI, Putin warned that such technology should not become “monopolized” (sound familiar?), hinting that Russia would share the technology if it develops AI first.

“If we become leaders in this area, we will share this know-how with the entire world, the same way we share our nuclear technologies now,” he told students around the country, via satellite link-up, as he spoke to them from the Yaroslavl region.

Frankly, I wouldn’t buy that but the points are well-made: AI may become too powerful for one company — or three or four — to contain.

Very Good News for Humanity ∞The 9th Dimensional Arcturian Council via Daniel Scranton – October 8, 2017

“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.

We have been witnessing more acts of kindness within the human race, and we can say for certain that these acts of kindness are a result of the quickening of your evolution. It is without a doubt that the energies that are upon you are having the desired effect. We not only see you being kinder to each other, but we also notice that you are carrying less resentment towards those who you previously had quite a bit of resentment for.

You are beginning to see the world through the eyes of Source on a more regular and consistent basis. You are bringing yourselves to an elevated state of your consciousness where you are more likely to see the good within each other and less likely to point out the so-called flaws or negative aspects.

We can see the energy of the human collective operating more harmoniously than ever before, and we know that this trend will continue. The energies that are upon you at this time are making it harder for individuals to stay in the lower frequency ranges. Those who continue to hold grudges are having a harder time. They are having a harder time maintaining those thoughts.

And you are all getting upgrades at this time that will activate within you information and DNA from the Sirius Star System. You all carry within you genetic material and energy from the other star systems in the galaxy. With the upgrade, and the energy and information from Sirius, you can expect to be more inclined towards acts of service, and that will bring you even closer together as a collective. In case you didn’t realize it already, this is very good news for humanity.

We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”


5 Attachments to Release on the Path of Enlightenment — October 8, 2017

You probably don’t need me to tell you that spirituality isn’t all about feeling positive or uplifted. The enlightenment path requires us to sacrifice things that hold us back and keep us from making progress, and maybe this is where the notion of religious sacrifice was created. Most religious sacrifices throughout history have been unnecessarily violent…Read more

Since 2016, Cops have Killed 3 Times as Many Citizens Than 4 Decades of Mass Shootings COMBINED – October 8, 2017

As American citizens call for disarming the public, they conveniently ignore the most deadly group of people who will be the only ones with guns



As Hillary Clinton calls for repealing the second amendment, this behind the scenes deep state puppet master epitomizes what those in favor of gun control really want — only the government can have guns.

Every time a lunatic, who is usually on some form mind-altering pharmaceutical, goes on a shooting rampage, the do-gooders in Washington, with the aid of their citizen flocks, take to the TV and the internet to call for disarming the American people.

The citizens who call for themselves and their neighbors to be disarmed, likely think no deeper than the shallow speeches given by the political blowhards, designed to appeal to emotion only. They do not think of what happens during and after the government attempts to remove guns from society. They also completely ignore the fact that criminals do not obey laws and making guns illegal would have zero effect on criminals possessing guns.

In the perfect statist world in which only the government has guns, we’re told that crime rates would plummet, people wouldn’t be murdered, gun violence would be brought to its knees, and a disarmed heaven on Earth would ensue. But how effective would disarming the citizens actually be at preventing gun violence, while at the same time keeping guns in the hands of government?

One simple way to determine the outcome would be to compare mass shootings in America with those killed by police. It is entirely too easy to compare all senseless murders carried out by the state to those carried out by citizens, so we will zoom in with a microscope…..

Why Expansion of Consciousness triggers the Sh*t out of us – October 8, 2017

Why Expansion of Consciousness triggers the Sh*t out of us

“Man, I feel like sh*t again. Does this ever stop?” When we go through our expansion of consciousness, we sometimes feel like being caught up in the neverending story. In line with the intense energetic frequency shifts we experience on the planet we go through deep waves of exhaustion, frustration, fear and nothing seems to make sense anymore. Why?

Shifting frequency is fastly done on the energetic level of higher consciousness. This is what often is referred to as shifting into another dimension. What we tend to forget ist that all of our existence: the mental, the emotional and the physical body need to come along, too. And that takes time. Every time we step out of our comfort zone, we cause this process to be set into motion. We can either choose actively to take that step, or prolong and avoid it until the law of attraction does us that favour and delivers us the necessary trigger/situation/people that kick us out.

The step into the uncomfortable, into the fear zone triggers an emotion. This is the necessary basis for an energetic frequency shift. When we do, there are always two processes running in parallel:

1) Releasing of old Frequency Patterns that do not fit that new Level

The step out of our comfort zone naturally causes an energetic friction between different frequencies within us. Old fear frequencies we still hold in our bodies are surfacing to be let go of. They show up in form of emotions we feel. When we allow ourselves to feel them without being afraid of the pain, without going into the drama or letting our head create a story around it, we shift it quickly. Treating emotions as energy without any interpretation keeps us in our power and in the moment. We feel the old pain and then let it go. We go deep, but feel lighter afterwards.

“Treating emotions as energy without any interpretation keeps us in our power and in the moment. We feel the old pain and then let it go. We go deep, but feel ligher afterwards.”

Depending on which body is cleansing the sensations feel different. The mental (home of the ego/masculine) and emotional body (home of the inner child/feminine) are not as dense as the physical body (embodiment of the energetic frequency band we are currently in/spirit). Releases from the mental body just come in form of “thought garbage” – thoughts that fly by without being able to really grasp them. That is very often experienced in Reiki sessions, as it is the easiest and quickest level to cleanse. The emotional body releases in forms of feelings. They come suddenly and can be quite explosive, and they often feel like the complete overwhelm. The physical body releases from the cellular memory and that takes a lot more time due to its higher density. The releases feel more like pulling out chewing gum. The emotions and thought patterns that come up for release feel subtler and yet go much deeper. It is a deep aching, almost like recalling a past life memory that becomes very real in that moment. In addition to that, old chronic disease flares up, also a final purging of old patterns. This is no fun, and yet it is necessary and important to allow it to be there and to not try to suppress or fight it.

2) Integrating new Information of the new Frequency Band (Dimension)

The second process is that our bodies are integrating new information and are forming new pathways to operate on. We are rewriting the script by taking in the new data. Our bodies are upgrading and learning to maintain the higher frequency band we intend to fully shift into. Also here, the integration of information of the different bodies happens in different speeds depending on the density.

“The whole energetic strucure needs to change to be able to handle the new frequency permanently. That really means to rebuild everything.”

The whole energetic structure needs to change to be able to handle the new frequency permanently. That really means rebuilding everything. Also here, the physical body needs longest to restructure its whole geometry and integrate the DNA upgrades (data / Light codes) we are receiving when we are outside of the comfort zone. The mental body experiences sudden insights and aha moments, where all of a sudden everything is crystal clear and makes total sense. The emotional body experiences unconditional love for the first time through the heart and it can be completely overwhelming and emotional in a beautiful way, feeling connected with all that is energetically. The physical body is integrating new DNA information and changes in behavior, form and structure. Shape shifting is a common thing to observe. As the body is now able to take in more and more light, the form of the eyes changes, weight changes, cravings change, the skin color changes, hair growth intensifies etc. Along with that come tons of symptoms: Blurry eyes, spine pain, especially in the neck area, flu symptoms, especially a sore throat, ringing ears, heart palpitations etc. The whole system is adapting to be able to handle the new frequency and that is far from comfortable. (Of course… because we are outside of the comfort zone…)

The Chaos in between

When we go through these releases and upgrades, we experience a lot of chaos. We are in the middle of two frequency bands and feel that nothing makes sense anymore. We don’t understand what is going on, we feel hopeless, useless and crappy. Although these phases are uncomfortable, they are a necessary part of the process and cannot be avoided. We are recalibrating, reforming, restructuring. The old structures are dissolved, so that the new structure can form. Until we are able to fully hold the new frequency because we have restructured our whole system to handle it, we are experiencing these intense periods of chaos and overwhelm. And that is the feeling like “Sh*t” part that is necessary.

“Although these phases are uncomfortable, they are a necessary part of the process and cannot be avoided. We are recalibrating, reforming, restructuring.” 

To make it a bit more tangible, let’s look into Cymatics. Cymatics is the visualization of different sound frequencies (measured in hz). When you put sand on a plate that vibrates to the different sound frequencies coming out of a loudspeaker, geometric patterns form and change. Between two frequency bands, the sand corns are reorganizing and go into chaos. The higher the frequency, the more complex the geometry gets. Looking at this we can understand much better, what is going on within our bodies when we shift our own frequency upwards. Just imagine how much longer that restructuring takes, when you don’t take sand but clay instead (to kind of compare it to our physical body). Our geometric patterns change, yet in between there is chaos. As long as we are not able to fully hold the new frequency, we fall back into chaos. Until we have completely restructured and built our new geometry.

This video shows this experiment beautifully.


So please be patient with your bodies / System when going through the shifts. There is a lot going on within that we cannot see, but surely feel and experience. It is all normal and necessary in order to go through our personal human evolution. Understanding how energy works and connecting with and empowering our inner child plays a vital role in our process. Patience is key, and we really need to become our own compassionate space holders, appreciating what our body does and goes through, in order for us to shift our experience.
