Fake Money Making real things, and providing real services should earn us real money. Fake money is different. It is not earned and adds nothing to the world’s wealth. Fake money is borrowed from future output, and issued by a criminal bankster syndicate. On the contrary, real money is not controlled by anyone. It is…Read more & videos
Within the past five years alone, it’s truly amazing just how many people have become aware of important information that was once, absurdly, labelled as a mere conspiracy theory. There are too many examples to list, with perhaps the latest being the UFO footage that was just released by the Pentagon, or perhaps, the Edward….Read more
If you’re familiar with CE’s content, you may have noticed that we frequently refer to the shadow government, the deep state, the cabal, the Illuminati, and the elite. We often use these words synonymously, though some of these terms have slightly different meanings. If you’re unfamiliar with the true meanings of these terms, then this article is…Read more
“We were born to be free… to build things and grow our own food, develop our skills and be creative, not to lose ourselves in shopping, technology and mindless consumption. We are here to love and practice forgiveness, not to make war, seek revenge and take the lives of others. Here to share our wealth, to be noble and generous, not to hide behind high walls and hoard possessions…”
We live in an age where the delusions and ignorance of modern civilizations have become the global norm.
Most of the problems in our world stem from how “civilized” humans have compartmentalized life in such a way as to hide reality from ourselves and other people.
A fantasy view of reality, what Buddhists call samsara, has been packaged, marketed and sold to the masses by those in positions of influence and power.
This has been done on purpose, has been the “operating code” of hierarchical human civilizations for thousands of years. Our leaders don’t want us to know what is really going on, with anything.
This was as true of pharaohs and kings in the past as it is of large corporations, governments, billionaires, military leaders and media elites now.
The compartmentalization of knowledge and intentional hiding of facts is how those in power maintain control.
They hide how food is produced, how wars create future terrorists (and civilian casualties), how education is being intentionally dumbed down, how the earth’s ecosystems are being destroyed, how politicians are corrupt, how democracy has been rigged, how debt enslaves people and wealth is accumulated unfairly.
Most importantly, they try to keep us in the dark about how all this is harming us now and will harm generations far into the future.
Instead of the truth, we are fed a fantasy view of reality, constructed by slick policy makers, speech writers and marketing wizards.
These deceptions and illusions are spread through newspapers, advertising, TV dramas, magazines and even the way children are taught in schools.
This is the challenge of mind control and tyranny that our ancestors battled for centuries, that we of the 21st century are still struggling with.
It’s way bigger than the economy, the debt, the stress, the political unrest and social dysfunction we see all around us.
If current generations don’t throw off the delusions of ignorance and open our eyes to what is REALLY going on, our children and grandchildren will continue to be enslaved, not only by the lies, but also by the very real and harmful consequences that our ignorance of reality has been producing.
Without a clear vision and understanding of the unity and interdependence of the world, we are unable to make wise judgements and choices.
Wisdom requires creative and critical thinking, the ability to understand causal relationships and connections, so as to judge which actions will have positive consequences, and which actions will most likely create harm.
The cult of ignorance twists and compartmentalizes our thoughts so that it’s harder for us to make wise choices and judgments.
We choose what we are told to choose, what tastes good, looks good, feels good in the moment and benefits those in power, but is in truth harmful for the rest of us, for the earth, and our future descendants.
Are you ready to wake up from this, to embrace our true potential, interdependence and wholeness? We need to wake up, each of us, and then wake up others, wake up our family, friends and children. It’s the only way the cult’s power can be overthrown and diminished.
We were born to be creative and free, not to serve others like serfs and robots. We were born to build things and grow our own food, develop our skills and be innovative, not to lose ourselves in shopping, mindless technologies and consumption.
We are here to grow spiritually, to love and practice forgiveness, not to make war, seek revenge and take the lives of others. Here to share our wealth, to be noble and generous, not to hide behind high walls and hoard possessions.
We can wake up and turn the tide. Humans must wake up, there is no choice. Now is the time. We need the richest and most powerful among us to awaken as well, to share their wealth and power, to behave more wisely and compassionately.
Our children, all the creatures of the earth and the future of life on our planet now depend upon us, all of us, to awaken from this spell of ignorance and become wiser as a species.
“People normally cut reality into compartments, and so are unable to see the interdependence of all phenomena. To see one in all and all in one is to break through the great barrier which narrows one’s perception of reality.” ~Thich Nhat Hanh
“I think the difficulty is this fragmentation.. All thought is broken up into bits. Like this nation, this country, this industry, this profession and so on… And they can’t meet. That comes about because thought has developed traditionally in a way such that it claims not to be effecting anything but just telling you the way things are. Therefore, people cannot see that they are creating a problem and then apparently trying to solve it..” ~ David Bohm, Wholeness: A Coherent Approach to Reality

(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 Robotics.news:
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.
