I thought this was interesting...
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2017/11/171116132657.htm

It is well known that all evidence suggests modern man evolved in Africa and crossed the land bridge into North America as well as spreading into Europe. Modern DNA evidence also comes to the very same conclusions which begs an interesting question.

If this is true then are we all not Africans?. Which puts an entirely new spin on racism because it would be like saying my family tree is somehow inferior or lesser than me despite the fact I came from them and carry the same DNA. Of course I understand that some believe two white folks were just created from nothing in some garden however there are no facts to support this claim. It also puts a new spin on aboriginal or native issues because they would also be immigrants and have no claim to being here first. In some sense almost everyone is in fact an immigrant who came from somewhere else.

I like this notion that we are all fundamentally the same and related to one another in some way because it should mean our differences are very small by comparison and they can be overcome.

That could be "his story", but I'm sure there are others.  Never forget, education, media and the sciences have two main purposes:
  • Ensure the masses are taught what the owners want them to know.
  • Ensure the masses are never taught nor able to find out what the owners don't want them to know.
That pretty much leaves most of us in the dark and rightly named "the unwashed masses" by the owners.

So as to our origins, I'm pretty uncertain.  Humans could have been made by higher intelligence--beings from another world and transplanted here or actually developed right here on Earth.  I have no idea.  I do not trust the supposed "facts" I'm spoon feed.  What I do trust is my gut and it tells me to watch, listen and be aware of some higher power, a force that has been in existence since the beginning of time.  If one's mind is able to tunnel through all the noise, a connection can be formed; that connection will give you access to the actual database of everything--a place where time & space are limitless.  In there you will find what you are looking for.  The rest...

..is simply noise.

Trust your instincts; let no one blaze your trail.


Are we all connected in some way?  Sure.  We all came from the same primordial soup didn't we.  We are connected to each other, bugs, birds, creatures of all sorts.  Lest we forget we are far more than the biological shell we are occupying at the moment.  There's something far greater that makes these globs of flesh alive.  Whatever it is, it is also connected and will remain so throughout eternity.

I don't believe that and you can only control a person if they accept the control which is generally peer pressure. As well many countries have free primary and secondary education light years ahead of the U.S.. So we should understand we are not speaking of every country trying to brainwash people only certain countries we all know.

I have the same thoughts and they actually agree with science. Science openly admits that there was a transition period between the Neanderthals and modern man which was exceptionally short and nobody can explain why. It is as if the transition took place over night so far as normal time lines are concerned. Thus one could speculate that modern man may have been a very successful mutation or there may have been a little genetic engineering going on we don't know about. Nobody honestly believes we are alone in the universe do they?.

I figure in 300-500 years, if we make it that long, genetic engineering and advanced technology will be common and we will be Gods in our own right with respect to people today. Understand only 200 years ago almost everyone was living in sod or timber houses riding horses and pooping in the woods. Only 200 years ago it was not much different than the dark ages and we have come a very long way in a short period of time. To put it in perspective... we learned more new things yesterday than we did in the last six thousand years before the year 1900. The rate at which we learn new things is increasing exponentially and in ten years we will learn more new things in one minute than we did yesterday or the last six thousand years before the year 1900.

Personally I don't see what your referring to and science and technology is moving faster today than at any other time in mankind's history.

I personally think science and technology has left us common people in the dust.  We hold a smartphone in our hand and think wow, that really is quite an achievement.  Meanwhile I suspect there are those deep into the cutting edge technology that hold a device in their hand of similar size capable of both giving and taking life.  Devices so complex and sophisticated, they must be well beyond 50 years more advanced than anything we can even imagine.  I think so-called science fiction is actually just a small taste of what's really out there.  When guys like Ben Rich say things like, "Anything you can imagine, we've already done."  I worked with guys like that years back and they don't need to blow smoke.  They show up to work with the real deal and the Generals go wild.

There's some interesting stuff out there from a lady by the name of Catherine Austin Fitts.  She has done a lot of research into what she calls The Break-Away Society.  There's good evidence humans have left this planet and are out there all over the place doing pretty much anything they want.  Flying saucers?  Child's play to the boys on the inside.  Maybe someday these people will find a sense of guilt and come back here with the goal of helping us all.  Not holding my breath though.

They are helping you Matt you just can't see it. Imagine you had this technology then disclosed it and then China, Russia, Iran and NK built 30,000 mph craft with advanced particle weapons...what do you think is going to happen?. Will you all be roast marshmallows around an open fire and singing Cumbaya?. You see if you did understand all of it and you did give it all away you would become an "Oppenheimer"...  “Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds”.

Maybe, just maybe they are not the problem and it is we who are the problem. I mean all you have to do is watch the news for an hour or so to understand how immature and irresponsible most people are and the term responsible adult seems so distant. I think everyone has a lot of growing up to do before we see this technology start to surface.

Look at the groper and chief Donald Trump, an embarrassment to humanity and the laughingstock of the world. If that isn't reason enough to bury this technology for 100 years I don't know what in the hell is.

Spot on!

It does make me think though.  We're never going to see fuel-less generators are we?  Nothing has been left to chance, the technology we need to get this done isn't available to us.  It just wouldn't be smart to allow people such as the members of this forum to be able to purchase some special new semi-conductor that would make this all possible.  Everything can be weaponized and I'm quite certain they know it.

Oh well, so much for my anti-matter power station...

Makes me wonder if the insanity can be scaled back to a point where the Break-Away Society can cut us some slack and allow us to live a little without being under the thumb of the real knuckleheads.

It's all very disconcerting.   Something big will need to happen that changes everything.

Have you heard of the Star Trek "Prime directive"?. I believe it was based on our history and the Spaniards who went to South America to trade with the native people. When they left they gave them knives, axes and hand farming tools. They thought they would hunt better, build houses, start farming and gain vast knowledge. In reality when they came back they found the natives used them as weapons and turned the whole region into a blood bath resulting in chaos.

The lesson is that technology cannot fix stupid and in many respects it only exaggerates the inherent problems already present and makes things worse. In many respects I think star trek and other media have already influenced many young people in regards to the intelligence, attitude and belief systems required by a truly modern civilization. Can we get there in our lifetime?, from what I have seen I don't think so however I believe we can be done. It's going to take time and a major shift in our attitudes regarding the incoherent accumulation of wealth and consumption as a supposed purpose in life... which it is not. I remain hopeful despite what I see on the news... who knows what the future holds.

I guess it comes down to education.  Until people understand and buy into a some sort of peaceful system of civilization, we will continue to hack away at the branches never knowing the tree has a root.

I was thinking about freedom tonight... freedom and independence.

Some see it as wealth or fame or beliefs however being a slave to our own desires or beliefs doesn't feel like freedom to me. Then I had this vision of a man who planned to climb that mountain for years. He planned everything out meticulously and then he climbed and he toiled and then 5 feet from the peak he stopped and took a deep breath and climbed back down. Why did he turn around?, because he had nothing to prove to anyone including himself.

Many might see this as failure however having the discipline and integrity to have all you dreamed of right in front of you and then turn the other cheek ... I would call that freedom.

It is odd that one can find insight in the most unexpected places. How can wealth and fame and beliefs be freedom if it means we must always be a slave to them?.

This should be mandatory reading for a whole lot of us ape-men.
Not many of us would understand it, granted.
But who knows, hopefully it will spark some ideas atleast in those of us who needs it the most.

Has anyone ever found everyone's sense of normal to be a little messed up, a little woo woo?.

For example the power goes out and everyone goes outside and they have this dazed and confused look on their face. As if to say what just happened?, I moved the switch on the wall and the light did not come on!. When I move the switch on the wall the light always comes on but this time it did not and I do not understand it and I find all this very disturbing. As if there were some fundamental force of nature in which every switch must magically act on every light through some spooky action at a distance unknown to them. Move the switch = light... not unlike a monkey pressing a red button and then a peanut comes out of a hole in the wall.

Not unlike the strange notion that food comes from a grocery store, water from a tap, heat from a furnace and electronics from amazon. It begs the question how did everyone become so superficial?, why do they judge most things on often false appearances? and when did they they lose their curiosity and stop asking questions?.  What is even more mind boggling is that a recent U.K. study found 65% of people do not know how to change the tire on their car and 20% are unsure about how to change a light bulb. Yes you heard that right and 20% are not certain, somewhat confused or unsure how one would go about changing a light bulb... oh the humanity.

I just find it mind boggling that so many have literally no real knowledge or understanding of how the real world actually works. They have created this imaginary world of often false and misleading man-made contrivance so far removed from the natural world it verges on complete delusion. It doesn't seem so hard to believe that with automation and AI in the future we may be breeding an entire generation of completely useless people detached from reality. Hell were already half way there from the looks of it and most people are completely dependent on others for everything relating to their continued survival.

This reality we have created feels like one of those B rate zombie movies where most know the zombies are behind that door because there is groaning and scratching noises but that half-wit just has to open the door. Some yell no no don't do it you fool but we know that person will open the door anyways and we all know how it's going to end. My theory is that if you do not find the mass delusion if not outright stupidity comical then you have so sense of humor. You have to laugh otherwise you would probably go insane and become one of them.
