Negrophobia: Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and America’s Fear of Black People
By Brandon Hill

Phobias are lethal. This summer’s series of prominent killings of unarmed Black men, Michael Brown being the most covered, have forced me to come to terms with my own fear: I am an arachnophobe.

A few nights ago, I noticed a dark spot in my periphery. Suddenly it twitched. My stomach dropped. The dark spot was a five-inch spider, looking as if it had muscle and bone. There was no possible way I could sleep soundly until the behemoth was neutralized. I scrambled to find a shoe, then swung it with all my might. With a clap of thunder, the big dark enemy was no more; flattened to a wall stencil. Relief.

Phobias are extreme aversions. They are embedded deep in our psyches, activated when we come face-to-face with the thing we fear. For me, spiders trigger overreactions. For others, it can be people.

Black people.

Before there was Michael Brown, there was Eric Garner, a dark spot in the periphery of the NYPD—a trigger for their phobia. There was no possible way they could patrol confidently that day without assurance the behemoth was neutralized.

Garner’s 400-pound anatomy forms an object of American Negrophobia: the unjustified fear of black people. Studies show that Black people, particularly Black men, are the group most feared by White adults. Negrophobia fuels the triangular system of oppression that keeps people of color pinned into hapless ghettos between the pillars of militarized police, starved inner-city schools, and voracious prisons. And this summer there weren’t only Garner and Brown; there were John Crawford, and Ezell Ford, and many others who will not be eulogized in the media.

Even the most well-intentioned people sometimes have difficulty avoiding discourses that reinforce problematic notions of Black physicality. A few months ago, I got into a conversation with a mentor of mine, a Stanford administrator. This individual told a story of a visit to a penitentiary where there was a stellar performance of Shakespeare’s Othello by a cast of inmates. My mentor’s description of the lead, a brawny African-American male convict, will always fascinate me. In this person’s words, the thespian was a “large, beautiful, intimidating Black man.”

This stream of modifiers—large, beautiful, and intimidating—is normally reserved for majestic, predatory beasts like tigers, bears, or dragons. It describes something both appealing and appalling, but not typically a human. You can see classic buck and brute tropes echoed in various corners of modern popular culture. These types of perceptions of historically marginalized groups can, in the wrong circumstances, foment phobias—and dangerous overreactions.

But misperception is nothing new. The bestial depiction, and treatment, of Black people follows a linear history from the times of pickaninny children to the current United States president.

I hate to think this is what the police see when they approach any unarmed Black person—a predator that has escaped captivity and must be tranquilized before he or she wreaks havoc. And yet. An officer quelling Ferguson protests can be heard screaming on live television, “Bring it, all you f**** animals!” to the predominantly Black demonstrators.

Back to the spider once more: my perception of the fear and the ability of that spider to actually produce the threat I have mentally assigned it were completely disproportionate. It was just me spooking myself into fury. Phobic people hyperbolize a threat that is not actually present, and trip themselves into aggression. We as Americans must learn to see each other properly and not through the lens of phobia.

This is a plea to those officers who are unflinching in the gravest of dangers, whose courage is forged in the crucible of our nation’s worst emergencies, yet who lose all composure when facing the grimace of a Black man. The concept of diversity, like Eric Garner, is large, beautiful, and sometimes intimidating. America will only be America once we learn how to fully appreciate it, not fear it. One day, I hope, we won’t see our fellow humans as dark spots.

water follows static electricity from the balloon.  :)

#physics can be presented in a way that makes it very fun. :)


I hope more people will choose a career in science, math or engineering.  The world would be a better place if more people knew more science, since we would find solutions much faster to the challenges we face. :)    Science & technology allow for a lot of artistic expression, so one can do art by crafting new genes, writing new DNA poetry, creating new inventions and longevity potentials:) while being a scientist, engineer or etc. :)

Science will allow us to bring what is thought of as sci-fi or magic into the everyday reality, things like curing aging, eternal youth, telepathy, teleportation, shapeshifting, physical immortality, world peace as explained in the tech-filled videos below (some feature the Google Director of Engineering). 

FUTURISTIC SCIENCE AND TECH VIDEOS



SHAPESHIFTING

Shapeshifting matter means a tablet will change into an anti-gravity flying belt & we'll overcome the tendency to look at outward appearance - looking instead at Compassionate Intelligence. :) We won't recognize people by their shape, form, gender, height, skin color, which all will be fluid and changeable, but by their kindness & IQ. :)  Here is a shapeshifting gadgets 3 minute video ► Intel Claytronics (Programmable Matter) - DARPA from Intel.  What is more amazing is when we can re-assemble subatomic particles some day, so that we take air, water or anything solid and shapeshift it into any material object or even nutrients in our bloodstream (eliminating the need to eat and fixing all molecular damage, curing all dis-eases, making us ☺☻♥Shimmering Immortals♥☻☺). We will then be able to 'materialize' things out of thin air. :) We will be able to shift our form :), much more than the octopus in this 1 min video: Shapeshifting Octopus, amazing camouflage

TELEPATHY

NANOYOU PART 5 - The Nano Future is a 2 min video about a nanoconcept of human-human telepathy using physical technology, tiny robots that swim in our blood or brain.  Using the same idea, in the future, holographic computers, made of light and/or energy, could assist our brains to use telepathy and navigate other dimensions.  The video talks about the disposable nanobots [the cellphones of the future] enabling us to become Immortal global telepaths. Computers become smaller, so smartphones will become nanobots. Forget email, texting and phone... telepathy is the future :) see, hear, smell, feel, think what others (who answer your '♥telepathy call♥') ☻☺think-feel-hear-see-smell☺☻, full communication :) Brainwaves can be recognized (every time we speak or think a word, there is a voice or brain pattern), as voice can be today, so telepathy will be natural. We'll even move beyond basic sensory + verbal telepathy to conceptual complex trans-linguistic telepathy allowing us to have a communication ☻a billion times richer and more exact than human languages today☻.

In the coming telepathy age we will communicate thru concepts, colors, images & true sensory information instead of language. It'll be a communication a billion times more exact, as you can get a nuanced version of every 'word' or 'bit of info' encoding. ☻Telepathy allows fast transfer of Immortality technologies, volumes of info as vast as the present internet processed in 1 minute by our new brains.  We'll evolve to use a trans-linguistic high speed telepathy & present human languages will disappear. 

Telepathy will obsolete the monetary system even, as blueprints for 'goods' (things are information patterns) are exchanged freely & as pico-technology materializing centers [within human template] provide ability to re-assemble dirt protons-neutrons into any object. We'll also be able to create perfect weather thru a planetary shield.  Compassion & Peace will prevail♥.  

TELEPORTATION

Teleportation will make fixed physical location outdated and nations will disappear as a result.  Anyone will be able to be anywhere. Professor Zeilinger hopes it will be possible to teleport people in a few decades, as the 7 min video explains: Visions 19 Beam me up :). Certainly ☻♥Immortal Humans♥☻ should be able to teleport, why not. :)  Michio Kaku explains more teleportation in this 1 min video ► Michio Kaku on Teleportation.  Nations and languages will disappear and a multi-planetary Galactic Union of Immortals - GUI :) -  (extended to many planets we will terraform and colonize) will emerge.  

PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  Other billionaires have started Immortality efforts.  There are scientists within these projects who even talk of connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers and mystics (vallalar.org) have thought of Immortality for many decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)  

WORLD PEACE

We will become a Type 1 Civilization, a unified planet of peace, as Michio Kaku explains in this 10 minute video about aliens of Type 1, 2, 3, etc and our future ► Michio Kaku - Alien Life.  He explains that the European Union is the beginning of a type 1 civilization. Type 0 are like us. Type 1 attained World Peace thru kindness, create perfect weather (no more climate change) & have no natural disasters.  Type 2 and above are Immortal.  Type 2 are those who engineer stars.  Type 3 engineer galaxies.  Type 4 engineer an entire universe.  Type 5 include Universe creators. Optimists don't attack others verbally/physically (fear=expecting/creating others' negative behavior), but with gentle forgiving compassion♥ they are kind to all, expecting/creating others' positive future behavior.  Saying/doing positive things creates a positive present/future, so kindness is optimism. If we're helping and praising others more, we'll attain ♥World Peace♥ faster.   Armies will be only for asteroid defense, terraforming.  We'll invest trillions (lost in wars) in healthcare, enabling us to live as long as we want. :)   Benjamin Rush, one of America's founders, wanted to set up a ♥ Department of Peace ♥  ► thepeacealliance.org, with the same budget as the Department of Defense ►en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_of_Peace.  All nations could create Departments of Peace and Immortality.:)☺☻☼ Imagine a world where human                     #immortality and                     #worldpeace     are real! :)  As we imagine, so we create... ♥  World Peace is required for true Longevity of thousands of years, let alone Immortality, since wars cause death.  World peace will come as we return compassion for hate, quantum computers for today's computers:), altruism for selfishness, gentleness for aggression, immortality focus for death focus.

The reason world peace will manifest is that people will realize nationality and race are illusions.  "Race is a social concept, not a scientific one" according to Dr. Craig Venter, one of the first to see biological proof of this by sequencing the human genome. :)  The New York Times article ► http://www.nytimes.com/2000/08/22/science/do-races-differ-not-really-genes-show.html made it clear even in 2000, after we sequenced the human genome, that race is a social label, unsupported by scientific data.  Since 2000, many studies show within the same ethnicity/race there is often far more variation in DNA between  random people than between people of 2 nationalities.  Nationality is a very political social non-scientific label that has no basis in reality, since the nose, eye shape and skin-hair-eye color, appearance are just 0.01% of the DNA.   Science knows of tens of thousands of human genes so far and 3 genes have a role in how much melanin we have in eyes, hair, and skin. A little melanin means white skin, blue eyes, blonde hair; more melanin means darker eyes, hair, skin. :)  It's not worth having wars over such super-tiny differences.  Another article from Washington University highlights the illusion of races being real too ► http://wupa.wustl.edu/record_archive/1998/10-15-98/articles/races.html.  

It is likely one day USA, Canada, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Ukraine, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, South Africa, Vietnam, Australia, Turkey, European Union, etc will join and form a GALACTIC UNION headquartered maybe:) in a moving GIGANTIC MOTHERSHIP ORBITING THE EARTH, with other  ♥GIGANTIC SELF-SUFFICIENT MOTHERSHIPS♥ IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM being rotating headquarters after we terraform other planets.  :)  Everyone will like the advances we reach thru teamwork and all nations will join this Union eventually.  :)  The goal of this ☻♥Immortal Union of Altruistic Galactic Citizens♥☻ will be to Promote PEACE AND IMMORTALITY GALACTICALLY.  Within this Galactic Union that aims for Trans-Linguistic Telepathy to replace languages, we will also strive for the  Pursuit of Immortal Freedom, Immortal Happiness, Immortal Life.  "We, the citizens of the Galaxy, herein birth the Constitution of the GALACTIC UNION of Immortals... "  

BUILDING PARALLEL DIMENSIONS

Physical Immortality will be real one day & when we get bored of this dimension, we might even go to live in an inter-dimensional city by translation. Maybe we will be able to come back & use cosmic rays to precipitate an etheric-physical body template in a lighter more astral like dimension that resembles our physical one.  We will probably have millions of people willing and able to dispose of stomach, teeth, eating, reproductive organs, as human kids of 18 years old physiology could be precipitated by cosmic rays. Tech theoretically can allow kids with a billion parents, pro-creation done via 3d printing a "body for the soul" thru a mind-ray field of 1 billion Immortals, making everyone love any new born as if it's theirs as in true world peace and unity. :) That would be a little far out,lol, but not impossible since scientists today talk of birthing babies with 3 parents ► http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/27/us-ivf-3parent-idUSBREA1Q12420140227.  :)

MIND READING TECHNOLOGIES

The IBM 1 minute video on mind reading computers makes many wonder ► IBM Next 5 in 5 2011: Mind Reading. Selflessness-Honesty-Compassion-Understanding are enhanced by mind-reading technology. The super-intelligent ultra-compassionate ☼♥Shimmering♥☼ (due to luminescent picobots) ♥☻Immortals☻♥ (who are smarter than all science geniuses of the past combined) will be able to live without eating, shapeshift their forms & materialize anything (off-spring too, no reproductive organs needed). It will be natural to telepathically share the Bliss of Eternal Life with billions of Immortals in a mind-field of Ecstatic Joy.

ASTRAL MIND VERSUS BRAIN MIND Discoveries

There is proof we have more to our mind than the brain... as oberf.org, noetic.org, nderf.org, iacworld.org, iipc.org, monroeinstitute.org and other research centers explain.  I guess it could be that selfless seekers of truth will one day become Immortal by discovering via other dimensions the locations of planets (soul body can travel at trillions of times the speed of physical light) of Immortals and co-creating with these Immortals a civilization of Immortals here. :) Entanglement (Quantum Entanglement is a video with mind/matter experiments) potentially allows us to see and connect to multiverse (Multiverse Theory by Dr Michio Kaku) planets (NASA astral star traveler: goo.gl/2j0Tv) where people attained peace & Immortality and where they are ready to help us move towards Peace. War=death, so only peaceful folks are Immortal.  The Selfless, Kind and Intellectual will be Immortal only, naturally - as those who are selfish war with each other and war leads to mortality via death. :)  Plus one needs to be super-intelligent to maintain one's Immortality.  Immortals may build their own dimension later. Long-term though, picobots will enable everyone to become 1000 times smarter than all geniuses of all current history combined eventually, so more people will engage in more intelligent selfless activities than today. :) picobots will enable all to learn in 10 minutes what we have learned in 10 years, to gain full learning at neuron level in a high-speed movie (there is no word for it, but it's a movie that has all knowledge in it, all the emotions, intentions, etc) of the lives of the greatest geniuses and their knowledge, universal compassion, selflessness and grace. :) Everyone will be like a super-genius sage, a soft song of boundless compassion for all. Mind reading gadgets will be about freedom from limitation and from 'low intelligence'. Why move our hands to dial a phone and use our mouth with voice recognition when we can control a computer with our mind and that energy of speaking can be spent learning something that would help us live a few thousand years in any dimension we want? :) Mind reading gadgets will be seen as a natural evolution towards Immortal kindness and Immortality in any realm we wish. :)

Echoing the comments by Ukrainian Col. Andriy Lysenko, a senior NATO official said at least 1,000 Russian troops have poured into Ukraine with sophisticated equipment, leaving no doubt that the Russian military had invaded southeastern Ukraine.

The Evolution of a Narcissist
“The hand from behind is becoming more and more overt now,” Brig. Gen. Nico Tak said at NATO’s military headquarters, adding that Russia’s ultimate aim was to stave off defeat for the separatists and turn eastern Ukraine into a “frozen conflict” that would destabilize the country indefinitely.

“An invasion is an invasion is an invasion,” tweeted the Lithuanian ambassador to the U.N., Raimonda Murmokaite.

The U.N. Security Council will hold an emergency meeting on Thursday afternoon.

“Russian forces have entered Ukraine,” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said, canceling a foreign trip and calling an emergency meeting of the country’s security council. “Today the president’s place is in Kiev.”

Poroshenko urged his citizens to resist giving into panic.

“Destabilization of the situation and panic, this is as much of a weapon of the enemy as tanks,” Poroshenko told the security council.

As Poroshenko spoke, the strategic southeastern town of Novoazovsk appeared firmly under the control of separatists and their Russian backers, a new, third front in the war in eastern Ukraine between the separatists and Poroshenko’s government in Kiev.

Russia’s ambassador to the EU, Vladimir Chizhov, told the BBC that “NATO has never produced a single piece of evidence” of Russian troops operating in Ukraine. He said the only Russian soldiers in Ukraine were the 10 captured this week, who Moscow insists had mistakenly wandered across the border.

The Russian Defense Ministry didn’t directly deny its troops were in Ukraine, but said the list of Russian military units said to be operating in Ukraine had no relation to reality.

Lysenko said the missiles from Russia were fired at Ukrainian positions in the southeast about 11 a.m. and an hour and a half later, two columns, including tanks and other fighting vehicles, began an attack. They entered Ukraine from Veselo-Voznesenka and Maximovo in the Rostov region of Russia.

Russian stock markets dived as Switzerland joined the European Union in imposing restrictions on Russian state banks and fears grew that the U.S. and EU could impose further sanctions on Russian businesses and individuals in response to the military escalation. Russia’s MICEX index dropped nearly 2 percent on Thursday, and major Russian state banks VTB and Sberbank dropped more than 4 percent.

“Over the past two weeks we have noted a significant escalation in both the level and sophistication of Russia’s military interference in Ukraine,” Tak said in Casteau, Belgium. “Russia is reinforcing and resupplying separatist forces in a blatant attempt to change the momentum of the fighting, which is currently favoring the Ukrainian military.”

He said the 1,000 Russian troops was a conservative estimate and said another 20,000 Russian troops were right over the border.

NATO also produced satellite images to provide what it called additional evidence that Russian combat soldiers, equipped with sophisticated heavy weaponry, are operating inside Ukraine’s sovereign territory.

“This is highly sophisticated weaponry that requires well-trained crews, well-trained command and control elements, and it is extremely unlikely that this sort of equipment is used by volunteers,” Tak said.

Moscow has described the Russian citizens fighting with the separatists as volunteers.

Tak said the satellite images were only “the tip of the iceberg” in terms of the overall scope of Russian troop and weapons movements.

NATO also has detected large quantities of advanced weapons, including air defense systems, artillery, tanks and armored personnel carriers being transferred to separatist forces in eastern Ukraine,” he said. “The presence of these weapons along with substantial numbers of Russian combat troops inside Ukraine make the situation increasingly grave.”

The leader of the insurgency, Alexander Zakharchenko, said in an interview on Russian state television Thursday up to 4,000 Russians have fought on the separatist side since the armed conflict began in April.

The U.S. government also has accused Russia of orchestrating the rebel campaign and sending in tanks, rocket launchers and armored vehicles.

“These incursions indicate a Russian-directed counteroffensive is likely underway in Donetsk and Luhansk,” U.S. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said. She voiced concern about overnight deliveries of materiel in southeast Ukraine near Novoazovsk and said Russia was being dishonest about its actions, even to its own people.

Russian forces, she said, are being sent 30 miles (about 50 kilometers) inside Ukraine, without them or their families knowing where they are going. She cited reports of burials in Russia for those who have died in Ukraine and wounded Russian soldiers being treated in a St. Petersburg hospital.

On Thursday morning, an Associated Press journalist saw rebel checkpoints on Novoazovsk’s outskirts and was told he couldn’t enter. One of the rebels said there was no fighting in the town.

Novoazovsk, which lies along the road connecting Russia to the Russia-annexed Crimean Peninsula, had come under shelling for three days, with the rebels entering it on Wednesday. This area had previously escaped the fighting that has engulfed areas to the north, and the only way rebels could have reached the southeast was by coming through Russia.

The new southeastern front raised fears that the separatists are seeking to create a land link between Russia and Crimea. If successful, it could give them or Russia control over the entire Sea of Azov and the gas and mineral riches that energy experts believe it contains. Ukraine already lost roughly half its coastline, several major ports and significant Black Sea mineral rights in March when Russia annexed Crimea.

In Mariupol, a city of 450,000 about 30 kilometers (20 miles) to the west of Novoazovsk, a brigade of Ukrainian forces arrived at the airport on Wednesday, while deep trenches were dug a day earlier on the city’s edge.

National Guard spokesman Ruslan Muzychuk told the AP in Mariupol that the government has evidence that large amounts of weapons have been brought into Novoazovsk from across the Russian border.

He added that National Guard reinforcements were taking up positions in Mariupol.

“The positions are being strengthened,” the spokesman said. “The road from Novoazovsk to Mariupol is under the control of Ukrainian troops.”

Associated Press journalists on the border have seen the rebels with a wide range of unmarked military equipment — including tanks, Buk missile launchers and armored personnel carriers — and have encountered many Russians among the rebel fighters.

In Donetsk, the largest rebel-held city, 11 people were killed by shelling overnight, the city said Thursday.

Calico, the Google founded company for life extension, just got its own website. :)

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  


Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality/Longevity related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality/Longevity at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)

Health Department Reaching Out To Transgender Community To Improve Health, Safety

“The Transgender Tipping Point”- it was the focus of a recent “Time” magazine cover, calling it America’s next civil rights frontier. And here in Columbus, there is an effort underway to reach out to the transgender community and improve its health and safety. From the outside looking in, Heather Caminiti was a cheerful, happy little girl. Behind the sweet smile of a 4 year old was a world of turmoil. “I look at that and I think ‘God, I was such a sad kid. And I really remember being so disgusted and so upset about having to wear a dress.” That’s because despite all outward appearances, Heather knew very early on that “she” was actually a “he”. “It was confusing to me- why are people calling me by this female name and having me wear these girls clothes and use the girls restroom?” It was a lonely, bewildering existence that no one else seemed to understand. “Feeling that you’re a freak, you know? That you’re not, almost that you’re inhuman. You’re not similar to other people. And although I may have struggles that were different from others, I’m human. I cry and laugh just like everybody else. And I think [...]

We can create a World of Peace where we help each other build bridges to cross our common challenges as the boy does in the gif. :)

One day Peace will reign, nations will help each other... :)  How could we help Ukraine cross the bridge towards Peace?  First of all, thank You to all who send peaceful thoughts/energies to that area.  :)  Perhaps a good bridge is for all nations to tone down nationalism and recognize we are first Earth CITIZENS and national citizens second, so a trans-national Union for World Peace makes sense.  :)  The more democratic nations of the world could build a COMMON BRIDGE, A COMMON  GLOBAL PEACE ALLIANCE or GPA, with the aim of making wars history and protecting existing borders.  A GPA Military-Economic-Monetary Union could include US, India, Ukraine, Turkey, Indonesia, Canada, Mexico, European Union countries, Brazil, Australia,  Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, New Zealand and others.  :)  Maybe someone who is young reads this post and will help create this some day, as we all want to finally move on to Civilization and World Peace.  :)  All the trillions lost in warfare could be used for healthcare, Longevity, eliminating starvation, death due to dirty water, etc.  

The Ukraine crisis can be seen as one of many opportunities for a deeper WORLD PEACE, for monetary-economic-cultural-linguistic integration.  In a hilarious twist of history, some (not sure how many) people in Finland, Baltics, Philippines and other nations (afraid of being invaded by Russia/etc) want to hold referendums on whether to become semi-independent countries within some future American federation or American territories or protectorates, to prevent becoming the next Crimea.  That sounds almost comical, lol, but it shows how karma works.  Seriously though, perhaps establishing English as second official language in more nations could help the Global Peace Alliance♥ goal of WORLD PEACE.  Time will tell. :)  

Long-term though, the world will move beyond languages to TELEPATHY, beyond trade to Materializing by Thought, so all these things like economy-language, etc will vanish.  :) More on the future of Teleporting Shapeshifting Immortals of the ONE WORLD OF PEACE can be found in the videos below, some featuring the Google Director of Engineering 

FUTURISTIC SCIENCE AND TECH VIDEOS



SHAPESHIFTING

Shapeshifting matter means a tablet will change into an anti-gravity flying belt & we'll overcome the tendency to look at outward appearance - looking instead at Compassionate Intelligence. :) We won't recognize people by their shape, form, gender, height, skin color, which all will be fluid and changeable, but by their kindness & IQ. :)  Here is a shapeshifting gadgets 3 minute video ► Intel Claytronics (Programmable Matter) - DARPA from Intel.  What is more amazing is when we can re-assemble subatomic particles some day, so that we take air, water or anything solid and shapeshift it into any material object or even nutrients in our bloodstream (eliminating the need to eat and fixing all molecular damage, curing all dis-eases, making us ☺☻♥Shimmering Immortals♥☻☺). We will then be able to 'materialize' things out of thin air. :) We will be able to shift our form :), much more than the octopus in this 1 min video: Shapeshifting Octopus, amazing camouflage

TELEPATHY

NANOYOU PART 5 - The Nano Future is a 2 min video about a nanoconcept of human-human telepathy using physical technology, tiny robots that swim in our blood or brain.  Using the same idea, in the future, holographic computers, made of light and/or energy, could assist our brains to use telepathy and navigate other dimensions.  The video talks about the disposable nanobots [the cellphones of the future] enabling us to become Immortal global telepaths. Computers become smaller, so smartphones will become nanobots. Forget email, texting and phone... telepathy is the future :) see, hear, smell, feel, think what others (who answer your '♥telepathy call♥') ☻☺think-feel-hear-see-smell☺☻, full communication :) Brainwaves can be recognized (every time we speak or think a word, there is a voice or brain pattern), as voice can be today, so telepathy will be natural. We'll even move beyond basic sensory + verbal telepathy to conceptual complex trans-linguistic telepathy allowing us to have a communication ☻a billion times richer and more exact than human languages today☻.

In the coming telepathy age we will communicate thru concepts, colors, images & true sensory information instead of language. It'll be a communication a billion times more exact, as you can get a nuanced version of every 'word' or 'bit of info' encoding. ☻Telepathy allows fast transfer of Immortality technologies, volumes of info as vast as the present internet processed in 1 minute by our new brains.  We'll evolve to use a trans-linguistic high speed telepathy & present human languages will disappear. 

Telepathy will obsolete the monetary system even, as blueprints for 'goods' (things are information patterns) are exchanged freely & as pico-technology materializing centers [within human template] provide ability to re-assemble dirt protons-neutrons into any object. We'll also be able to create perfect weather thru a planetary shield.  Compassion & Peace will prevail♥.  

"Race is a social concept, not a scientific one" according to Dr. Craig Venter, one of the first to see biological proof of this by sequencing the human genome. :)  Telepathy will help us see that even more, as the identification with language will disappear.  The New York Times article ► http://www.nytimes.com/2000/08/22/science/do-races-differ-not-really-genes-show.html made it clear even in 2000, after we sequenced the human genome, that race is a social construct, unsupported by scientific data.  Since 2000, many studies show within the same ethnicity/race there is often far more variation in DNA between  random people than between people of 2 nationalities.  Nationality is a very political social non-scientific label that has no basis in reality, since the nose, eye shape and skin-hair-eye color, appearance are just 0.01% of the DNA.   Science knows of tens of thousands of human genes so far and 3 genes have a role in how much melanin we have in eyes, hair, and skin. A little melanin means white skin, blue eyes, blonde hair; more melanin means darker eyes, hair, skin. :)  It's not worth having wars over such super-tiny differences.  Another article from Washington University highlights the illusion of races being real too ► http://wupa.wustl.edu/record_archive/1998/10-15-98/articles/races.html.  

TELEPORTATION

Teleportation will make fixed physical location outdated and nations will disappear as a result.  Anyone will be able to be anywhere. Professor Zeilinger hopes it will be possible to teleport people in a few decades, as the 7 min video explains: Visions 19 Beam me up :). Certainly ☻♥Immortal Humans♥☻ should be able to teleport, why not. :)  Michio Kaku explains more teleportation in this 1 min video ► Michio Kaku on Teleportation.  Nations and languages will disappear and a multi-planetary Galactic Union of Immortals - GUI :) -  (extended to many planets we will terraform and colonize) will emerge.  

PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  There are other billionaires, Immortality efforts, scientists who gather and discuss at congresses about connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers have thought of Immortality for decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health.

WORLD PEACE

We will become a Type 1 Civilization, a unified planet of peace, as Michio Kaku explains in this 10 minute video about aliens of Type 1, 2, 3, etc and our future ► Michio Kaku - Alien Life.  He explains that the European Union is the beginning of a type 1 civilization. Type 0 are like us. Type 1 attained World Peace thru kindness, create perfect weather (no more climate change) & have no natural disasters.  Type 2 and above are Immortal.  Type 2 are those who engineer stars.  Type 3 engineer galaxies.  Type 4 engineer an entire universe.  Type 5 include Universe creators. Optimists don't attack others verbally/physically (fear=expecting/creating others' negative behavior), but with gentle forgiving compassion♥ they are kind to all, expecting/creating others' positive future behavior.  Saying/doing positive things creates a positive present/future, so kindness is optimism. If we're helping and praising others more, we'll attain ♥World Peace♥ faster.   Armies will be only for asteroid defense, terraforming.  We'll invest trillions (lost in wars) in healthcare, enabling us to live as long as we want. :)   Benjamin Rush, one of America's founders, wanted to set up a ♥ Department of Peace ♥  ► thepeacealliance.org, with the same budget as the Department of Defense ►en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_of_Peace.  All nations could create Departments of Peace and Immortality.:)☺☻☼ Imagine a world where human           #immortality and           #worldpeace   are real! :)  As we imagine, so we create... ♥  World Peace is required for true Longevity of thousands of years, let alone Immortality, since wars cause death.  World peace will come as we return compassion for hate, quantum computers for today's computers:), altruism for selfishness, gentleness for aggression, immortality focus for death focus.

It is likely one day USA, Canada, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Ukraine, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, South Africa, Vietnam, Australia, Turkey, European Union will join and form a GALACTIC UNION headquartered maybe:) in a moving GIGANTIC MOTHERSHIP ORBITING THE EARTH, with other  ♥GIGANTIC SELF-SUFFICIENT MOTHERSHIPS♥ IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM being rotating headquarters after we terraform other planets.  :)  The goal of our ☻♥Immortal Union of Altruistic Galactic Citizens♥☻ will be to Promote PEACE AND IMMORTALITY GALACTICALLY.  Within this Galactic Union that aims for Trans-Linguistic Telepathy to replace languages, we will also strive for the  Pursuit of Immortal Freedom, Immortal Happiness, Immortal Life.  "We, the citizens of the Galaxy, herein birth the Constitution of the GALACTIC UNION of Immortals... "  

BUILDING PARALLEL DIMENSIONS

Physical Immortality will be real one day & when we get bored of this dimension, we might even go to live in an inter-dimensional city by translation. Maybe we will be able to come back & use cosmic rays to precipitate an etheric-physical body template in a lighter more astral like dimension that resembles our physical one.  We will probably have millions of people willing and able to dispose of stomach, teeth, eating, reproductive organs, as human kids of 18 years old physiology could be precipitated by cosmic rays. Tech theoretically can allow kids with a billion parents, pro-creation done via 3d printing a "body for the soul" thru a mind-ray field of 1 billion Immortals, making everyone love any new born as if it's theirs as in true world peace and unity. :) That would be a little far out,lol, but not impossible since scientists today talk of birthing babies with 3 parents ► http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/27/us-ivf-3parent-idUSBREA1Q12420140227.  :)

MIND READING TECHNOLOGIES

The IBM 1 minute video on mind reading computers makes many wonder ► IBM Next 5 in 5 2011: Mind Reading. Selflessness-Honesty-Compassion-Understanding are enhanced by mind-reading technology. The super-intelligent ultra-compassionate ☼♥Shimmering♥☼ (due to luminescent picobots) ♥☻Immortals☻♥ (who are smarter than all science geniuses of the past combined) will be able to live without eating, shapeshift their forms & materialize anything (off-spring too, no reproductive organs needed). It will be natural to telepathically share the Bliss of Eternal Life with billions of Immortals in a mind-field of Ecstatic Joy.

ASTRAL MIND VERSUS BRAIN MIND Discoveries

There is proof we have more to our mind than the brain...  I guess it could be that selfless seekers of truth will become Immortal by discovering via other dimensions the locations of planets (soul body can travel at trillions of times the speed of physical light) of Immortals and maybe even co-creating with these Immortals a civilization of Immortals here. :) Entanglement (Quantum Entanglement is a video with mind/matter experiments) potentially allows us to see and connect to multiverse (Multiverse Theory by Dr Michio Kaku) planets (NASA astral star traveler: goo.gl/2j0Tv) where people attained peace & Immortality and where they are ready to help us move towards Peace. War=death, so only peaceful folks are Immortal.  The Selfless, Kind and Intellectual will be Immortal only, naturally - as those who are selfish war with each other and war leads to mortality via death. :)  Plus one needs to be super-intelligent to maintain one's Immortality.  Immortals may build their own dimension later. Long-term though, picobots will enable everyone to become 1000 times smarter than all geniuses of all current history combined eventually, so more people will engage in more intelligent selfless activities than today. :) picobots will enable all to learn in 10 minutes what we have learned in 10 years, to gain full learning at neuron level in a high-speed movie (there is no word for it, but it's a movie that has all knowledge in it, all the emotions, intentions, etc) of the lives of the greatest geniuses and their knowledge, universal compassion, selflessness and grace. :) Everyone will be like a super-genius sage, a soft song of boundless compassion for all. Mind reading gadgets will be about freedom from limitation and from 'low intelligence'. Why move our hands to dial a phone and use our mouth with voice recognition when we can control a computer with our mind and that energy of speaking can be spent learning something that would help us live a few thousand years in any dimension we want? :) Mind reading gadgets will be seen as a natural evolution towards Immortal kindness and Immortality in any realm we wish. :)

https://plus.google.com/105861077871083662983 Joe Carpenter : THE BRANDING OF THE AMERICAN WOMAN FOR SALE, 2016. Can the American psyche handle it?  Are you woman...

THE BRANDING OF THE AMERICAN WOMAN FOR SALE, 2016.

Can the American psyche handle it?  Are you woman enough?  The “Time Magazine Cover” that reminded me of my first protest letter written to the La Jolla Museum of Contemporary art for a show that included a portrait/photo of a transvestite breast feeding a dead aborted fetus, umbilical cord and all, over 30 years ago. That was my first introduction to the “P.C. Elite” intellectually perverse mindset of the new progressives. The battle for America was defined in that shock and aw moment of realization that perversion sells in America and is considered interesting, not sick. The P.C. double standard precedence was culturally set at the highest levels, that offense is permissible on one side of the argument, but defense is not allowed on the other side of the argument. The Mount Soledad Cross now labeled as Cruciphobia in Google search along with Hetrophobia brings the DSM5 battle for medical definitions of the mind into the for front of the P.C. thought police as a “Newsweek Cover” proudly portrayed Obama as Americas first gay president. 

So the game is at foot. The challenge is on. Can the “American Media” brand, sell, monetize, script, create, exploit, denigrate, manipulate, subjugate, compromise, confuse, improve, raise, clarify, exalt, honor, respect or bring into focus the identity issue of what it means to be a “Woman” in America. Is Mrs. Clinton the role model for what it means to be American women to represent the female psyche as a standard? I think not as I defer to Judge Jeanine.

 “Justice” with Judge Jeanine on Fox News Channel brings it on last night as the 2016 election cycle of news wars begin. Some one is learning how to play this game and its not John McCain, Mitch McConnell or Lindsey Gram as, they just got castrated by a woman doing their jobs. Judge Jeanine eviscerates Mrs. Clinton for over an hour on the Benghazi scandal before the nation with high power guests supporting her every accusation. Poor John McCain dinosaur-ing his way with from one snooze alarm to the next as America goes down the road of blurred lines at the hands of equivocating spineless white men suffering from vagina envy afraid to have an opinion on anything.  It takes a woman to do a man’s job. It takes a homosexual to define sexual norms to the country. It takes a black president to fundamentally transform America and fix the white mans mess.  It takes a woman to put another woman in her place. It takes a black man to criticize a black man. It takes a homosexual to criticize a homosexual. It takes an interest group member to have the moral authority to criticize another interest group member? How stupid does it get? 

I just took a pole here at the coffee shop asking the mother of 3 besides me if she thinks Mrs. Clinton is a role model. The female police officer poring cream in her coffee over hearing my question flinched on hearing the words Mrs. Clinton and looked over at us. So I asked her, “You are a woman in uniform, what do you think?” She responded, I have no comment on that. I pressed the point looking at her eye to eye, what do you think? Do you think Mrs. Clinton is a role model? She just smiled, a real smile, like there is no way I am going to say anything bad about her but the answerer is no. I heard that loud and clear. Now I am a mind reader. Call it male intuition. (Catch that P.C. dig) I turned back to the mother of 3 and said there is no way Mrs. Clinton is going to be our next president.

Same thing for the Republicans and that John McCain and the Republican Rhino stamped of ineffectual, inarticulate, lack luster, feckless stuffed suits of the GOP. The 36 year old attractive mother of three next to me chimes in again and explains that she gave up her carrier to raise her children so that she can be the gold standard for her children. She says that she wants to be strong for her children because once that Kernel of doubt is entered in their minds it just spreads. I said its called primacy and recency, the recency effect in teaching, you want to be the first bean in and have standing with your children. We then agree that if she allowed her children to be raised by the culture they would be all confused.

Hear that Republicans you have failed to hold the line. You people have lost the culture war. Just as the Duck Dynasty people doing your job again. Stand aside GOP the girls will do what you people have refused to do. Where is that Sarah Palan these days anyhow? Has she started a third party yet?

On Aug. 12, Ferguson City Hall’s website went black, its phone lines died and officials had to communicate by text, according to the St. Louis Dispatch and the New York Times. Self-identified members of the amorphous, hard-to-define hacker community Anonymous had struck again, according to the papers, this time in response to the shooting of a black teenager, Michael Brown, by a white police officer. A Twitter account allegedly associated with Anonymous —@TheAnonMessage— threatened Jon Belmar, the St. Louis County police chief, with publicly releasing his daughter’s information “in one hour” unless he released the name of the officer who killed Brown. While Belmar didn’t give in, and @TheAnonMessage dropped the ultimatum, the account and other self-identified Anonymous members would post two days later the home address, Social Security number and phone number of Belmar, telling him to “run, Jon, run.” While that practice, known as doxing, is a common Anonymous cyberattack,@TheAnonMessage would go on to wrongly accuse a citizen of killing Brown. Twitter subsequently shut down the Twitter account @TheAnonMessage without much uproar from the Anonymous community, which prides itself on fighting censorship.

A week later, Anonymous is still at work, marking Thursday as a nationwide “day of rage” to protest police brutality. To better understand why Anonymous, whose targets have been varied (including MasterCard, a Tunisian dictator and Kiss singer Gene Simmons), is interested in the Brown shooting, TIME spoke with Jay Leiderman, an attorney who includes among his clients Anonymous hackers, and Gabriella Coleman, a McGill University anthropology professor who is writing a book on the loose-knit community. We also spoke about how many people were involved in Operation Ferguson and how the organization dealt with one of its own after falsely accusing someone of murder.

Inside the Tragedy of Ferguson
The Evolution of a Narcissist
Why is Anonymous involved in the Ferguson protests?
Anonymous’ “main demand” is “justice” for Brown and his family, Leiderman says. They can grab the attention of the Ferguson police and “let them know that they’re serious,” he says. Operation Ferguson falls in line with previous Anonymous efforts to unmask alleged perpetrators, like the 2012 Operation Red Roll, which released private information about people allegedly complicit in the rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio.

The “whole reason why” Anonymous got involved was a local rap artist — Tef Po — who called out for help on Twitter, according to Coleman, and the affiliated members responded. A day after the Brown shooting, Anonymous, through Operation Ferguson, released a statement asking Congress to pass a bill to set “strict national standards for police conduct.” It also warned the Ferguson government and police department of cyber-counterattacks if the protesters were abused, harassed or otherwise harmed.

“If you attack the protesters, we will attack every server and computer you have,” wrote the Operation Ferguson author. “We will dox [document trace] and release the personal information on every single member of the Ferguson Police Department, as well as any other jurisdiction that participates in the abuse. We will seize all your databases and e-mail spools and dump them on the Internet. This is your only warning.”

Coleman says that there isn’t unanimous support within the hacker community nor Anonymous on shutting down websites. “It’s a big contentious debate between hackers who have a purist, free-speech view, and others who have a more contextual one,” says Coleman. “There’s also a debate within Anonymous itself where a lot of hackers who really do the work of intrusion are not fans of doxing for two reasons: a) it’s technically uninteresting and b) sometimes they’re actually trying to gain access to those sites to hack them.”

“Really the main point is to gain media attention,” she says. “That’s kind of why that’s done more than anything else.”

How many Anonymous members are involved in Ferguson?
Anonymous is by definition a secretive group, one without leaders, an agenda or a set list of members. “No one has any idea” how many people are involved in Operation Ferguson, according to Leiderman, who called Anonymous a “nebulous and decentralized collective.”

“It’s impossible to say who is and who isn’t a member of Anonymous,” says Leiderman. “There is now way to disprove it.”

But Coleman says you can see which causes are more popular than others.

After the arrest of WikiLeaks’ founder Julian Assange in 2010, and Anonymous disrupted the websites of MasterCard, Visa and PayPal for declining to serve WikiLeaks, around 7,000 people logged onto the Anonymous chat channel and downloaded hacking tools, according to Coleman. That ad hoc association was “probably the largest ever,” Coleman says, and by her estimates, much more than the current Operation in Ferguson. (Anonymous distanced itself from Assange in October 2012 after he asked supporters to pay money for access to documents.) The Ferguson channel is used by up to 160 people, she says, although “thousands and thousands” are “within the orbit” supporting the cause through Twitter.

“It is really hard to tell in terms of the numbers,” says Coleman. “You do get a sense of which ones are bigger and smaller and I would probably put this in the definitely not small, [but] definitely not as big as something like WikiLeaks. Probably in between.”

How is the Anonymous community dealing with the member who misidentified the officer who shot Michael Brown?
The Twitter account @TheAnonMessage was not a very well-respected one within the Anonymous community, according to Coleman and Leiderman, despite the fact that it had been around for awhile.

“People had suspicions, but because he was being really active and contributing a lot to the operation,” says Coleman, “they kind of put their skepticism aside in some ways until it was too late … This is something that in some ways is perennially a problem and just has to do with the kind of architecture of Anonymous where you can’t really control what people are doing. There are norms and rules and ethics that definitely push behavior towards certain areas and not others, but by no means [are they] foolproof.”

After Twitter took down the account, an Anonymous member wrote a post to show a detailed ticktock “that this was the work of an Anon who was acting against the advice of others.” Other Twitter accounts associated with the group, like Operation Ferguson’s account, declined to name the Brown shooter as it looked for additional sources.

Coleman says that with the exception of a few cases, Anonymous has “generally been correct” in uncovering the right information. She calls @TheAnonMessage a “loose cannon” that had earned “skepticism” because of erratic actions in the past. Coleman says there “was no outcry” when Twitter shut down @TheAnonMessage despite Anonymous being “so famous for hating censorship.”

“Anonymous attracts people who are willing to push the envelope,” she says. “But there is always a hope that people who are doing it are getting the right names and information … I think that there was this expectation that people are doing that work carefully so when they’re not, people in Anonymous get really pissed off.”

When asked if Anonymous’ reputation was hurt after @TheAnonMessage released inaccurate information, Leiderman first blamed the media for going with an untrusted source before saying that Anonymous usually does a better job of establishing a correct verdict.

“Really you can’t pin that all on Anonymous,” he says. “The media that ran with it [failed] to confirm or deny the veracity of the statement … If the older and larger accounts run with something, it usually has a better chance of being more accurate.”

“You really want to see more consensus in the collective before you run with something like that,” he adds. “People that identify with Anonymous are really good at asking, ‘Are you sure?’, ‘How do you know?’, ‘Can you share the data with us in a secure way?’… and I’m not sure that happened in this case.”

Calico, the Google founded company for life extension, just got its own website. :)

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  


Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality/Longevity related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality/Longevity at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)

Obama, the ‘big data’ president

In the political world, the promise of data — whether it’s Nate Silver’s spot-on election predictions or President Obama’s clearinghouse of government information, Data.gov — is that we no longer have to take so much on faith. “What do the data show?” is the new “What do you think?,” the new “Is this a good idea?”

But belief in the clarifying power of data is its own kind of faith, and it is one Obama has embraced, even before winning the presidency. And now, with the revelation that the National Security Agency is processing huge caches of telephone records and Internet data, the American public is being asked to take on faith how data — and how much data — is being gathered and used in Washington.

The “big data” presidency transcends intelligence-gathering and surveillance, encompassing the White House’s approach on matters from health care to reelection. A ­big-data fact sheet the White House put out in March 2012 — upon the launch of its $200 million Big Data Research and Development Initiative — listed more than 85 examples of such efforts across a number of agencies. They include the CyberInfrastructure for Billions of Electronic Records (CI-BER), led in part by the National Archives and the National Science Foundation, and NASA’s Global Earth Observation System of Systems (GEOSS), which the fact sheet described as a “collaborative, international effort to share and integrate Earth observation data.” And the Defense Department is putting about $250 million a year into the research and development of such projects — “a big bet on big data,” as the White House called it.

“In the same way that past Federal investments in information-technology R&D led to dramatic advances in supercomputing and the creation of the Internet,” said a statement from John P. Holdren, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, “the initiative we are launching today promises to transform our ability to use Big Data for scientific discovery, environmental and biomedical research, education, and national security.”
 
This constant emphasis on data-driven decision-making is, in some respects, a deliberate break from the George W. Bush years, the revenge of the “reality-based community” that a Bush aide famously disdained, describing its members as people who believe that “solutions emerge from your judicious study of dis­cern­ible reality.” The White House’s embrace of big data is meant to suggest that ideology is less important than inarguable facts. In some ways, this faith in data over ideology defines what it means to be part of Team Obama.

Faith in data’s power is, no doubt, part of Obama’s political genealogy. Both his 2008 campaign and last year’s reelection bid made extensive use of organized and analyzed information. (His team’s data-mining and microtargeting became one of the big stories of those campaigns.) Obama campaign folks dismiss the idea that they were using data to sell the president like soda pop by burrowing into our brains with targeted appeals. In campaign politics, they say, the power of data is in making the most of resources, whether ad dollars or volunteer enthusiasm.

Generally, though, the conversation went something like this: Our mastery of data is (1) world-changingly powerful and (2) not something the public should worry about too much.

Obama didn’t first learn about the power of data on the campaign trail. One of his legislative accomplishments during his brief time in the Senate was a bill co-authored with Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) that called for the creation of an online federal spending database. At the time, they called it “a significant tool that will make it much easier to hold elected officials accountable for the way taxpayer money is spent.” (The result: USAspending.gov.) The transparency bill helped establish Obama’s bona fides as bipartisan as well as tech-savvy.

And this reputation carried over into the White House. Cass Sunstein, Obama’s first-term regulatory czar and now a law professor at Harvard, often said that regulations should be “evidence-based and data-driven.” Meanwhile, U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park, an assistant to the president, declared that “we are witnessing the emergence of a data-powered revolution in health care” in the lead-up to the latest Health Datapalooza, an annual conference showcasing innovations in the use of data by companies, academics and government agencies. Data in the hands of both patients and medical practitioners, Park argues, has the power to lower costs and improve health care.

That work is of a piece with the Obama administration’s release last month of a massive price list showing what more than 3,000 U.S. hospitals charge to treat 100different conditions — a move inspired by Steve Brill’s Time magazine cover story this year on health-care costs. The government collects that data in the course of administering Medicare and chose to release it to bolster public support for Obama’s health-care overhaul.

Sometimes, too, data has been for Obama a way of routing around awkward confrontations. His Federal Communications Commission has been hammered by some advocates for, as they see it, failing to put the public’s interest in cheaper, faster and more widespread Internet access ahead of the demands of telecom companies such as Verizon and AT&T. The FCC has focused its energies on techniques such as a “broadband speed test” that asks people to gauge how well their Internet connection works, data that providers aren’t eager to release. A neat hack, maybe, but some advocates would rather the FCC focus on getting tougher with industry.


In his talks on new approaches to government regulations, Sunstein is fond of quoting the late legal scholar (and, like Sunstein, former University of Chicago law professor) Karl Llewellyn: “Technique without morals is a menace,” Llewellyn supposedly remarked, “but morals without technique is a mess.”

The enduring challenge of those words has reappeared in the NSA controversy. Are the agency’s techniques a menace? Obama says he is happy to have the conversation. “I think it’s a sign of maturity,” the president said recently in California. “Because probably five years ago, six years ago, we might not have been having this debate.” But he hasn’t been entirely helpful in getting the debate going. “Nobody is listening to your telephone calls,” he said with a slight smile that quickly turned downward. “That’s not what this program is about.”

Unfortunately, “data-driven” has become a conversation-ender, rather than a conversation-framer. There are scores of substantive policy discussions to be had, about big issues — such as PRISM — and small, like how the Obama administration chooses to order the health-care plans detailed for the public on HealthCare.gov, which can nudge Americans toward one provider or another. But there are gaping holes in the understanding of big data among the private sector, elected officials and policy specialists — not to mention the public at large.

The PRISM and Verizon episodes have made plain that we lack even a common vocabulary for talking about big data. Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.)has for years tried to dance between his responsibilities as a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee and his desire to galvanize public attention on the NSA’s operations. In a March hearing, he asked Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for a yes-or-no answer to a seemingly straightforward question: “Does the NSA collect any type of data at all on millions or hundreds of millions of Americans?”

“No, sir,” came Clapper’s response. “Not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly.”

In light of the PRISM and Verizon revelations, critics have seized on these remarks as evidence of the agency’s duplicity. But as the Electronic Frontier Foundation has pointed out, the intelligence community uses a different definition of “collect” than other humans do, holding that it refers to the act of actively processing materials rather than, you know, collecting them.

“This job cannot be done responsibly if senators aren’t getting straight answers to direct questions,” a frustrated Wyden said this past week. (Nor is it always possible in these things to simply pretend it’s Opposite Day. Under federal law, “content” includes details such as e-mail subject lines. But the NSA has held that it isn’t parsing “content” when it evaluates the subject lines of e-mails it has collected. Or is that “collected”?)

In the high-tech and business worlds, big data is all upside and potential. Data on a giant scale exposes truths hidden in smaller sets. But in the policy realm, when big data is discussed at all, the conversation tends to focus on angst over personal privacy — and whether big data is a major threat.

That’s a limited view of what’s at stake. The government would have a strong self-interest in knowing, for instance, whether some small slice of the 1.1 billion Facebook users was discussing a coup, even if it couldn’t pinpoint the planners. That would be particularly true if, at the same time, it saw an upswing in people pulling up Google Maps images of the Ellipse across from the White House. Patterns are powerful.

Obama has sought to dismiss “the hype that we’ve been hearing,” as he put it, about the NSA’s data-crunching efforts by arguing that they’re complex answers to national security challenges — and ones that Congress has been fully briefed on. But there’s much to discuss about the nature of PRISM and similar programs before we get into the security nitty-gritty. And if it’s a complicated discussion, all the evidence suggests that it isn’t one that Congress is well equipped to have on its own.

What else should that discussion cover? There’s what the intelligence world calls the “mosaic effect” — when a nugget of data that is insignificant on its own takes on new meaning when combined with other bits of information. The White House warned of the risks of this effect in a new set of open-data rules it unveiled last month. There’s what big data means for the relationship between the government and large tech firms; beyond PRISM, for instance, the White House relies on data held by Google and Facebook to line up participants in its frequent online hangouts and chats. And then there’s what it means to be truly informed about what rights we’re giving away to the government — the end-user terms of service, in other words, for big data programs.

Old frameworks take us only so far. “The Constitutional text provides us with the general principle that we aren’t subject to unreasonable searches by the government,” wrote yet another former University of Chicago law professor. “It can’t tell us the Founders’ specific views on the reasonableness of an NSA computer data-mining operation.” That was Sen. Barack Obama in “The Audacity of Hope,” not long before entering the White House.

In his “military-industrial complex” speech in 1961, President Dwight Eisenhower warned the American people that “in holding scientific research and discovery in respect, as we should, we must also be alert to the equal and opposite danger that public policy could itself become the captive of a scientific-technological elite.” He said, “It is the task of statesmanship to mold, to balance and to integrate these and other forces, new and old, within the principles of our democratic system, ever aiming toward the supreme goals of our free society.”

More than 50 years later, the task of the modern statesman and stateswoman is to engage the public in the work of integrating the old and the new.

And if they don’t, well, see you on the Internet.

We can create a World of Peace where we help each other build bridges to cross our common challenges as the boy does in the gif. :)

One day Peace will reign, nations will help each other... :)  How could we help Ukraine cross the bridge towards Peace?  First of all, thank You to all who send peaceful thoughts/energies to that area.  :)  Perhaps a good bridge is for all nations to tone down nationalism and recognize we are first Earth CITIZENS and national citizens second, so a trans-national Union for World Peace makes sense.  :)  The more democratic nations of the world could build a COMMON BRIDGE, A COMMON  GLOBAL PEACE ALLIANCE or GPA, with the aim of making wars history and protecting existing borders.  A GPA Military-Economic-Monetary Union could include US, India, Ukraine, Turkey, Indonesia, Canada, Mexico, European Union countries, Brazil, Australia,  Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Vietnam, Cambodia, Philippines, New Zealand and others.  :)  Maybe someone who is young reads this post and will help create this some day, as we all want to finally move on to Civilization and World Peace.  :)  All the trillions lost in warfare could be used for healthcare, Longevity, eliminating starvation, death due to dirty water, etc.  

The Ukraine crisis can be seen as one of many opportunities for a deeper WORLD PEACE, for monetary-economic-cultural-linguistic integration.  In a hilarious twist of history, some (not sure how many) people in Finland, Baltics, Philippines and other nations (afraid of being invaded by Russia/etc) want to hold referendums on whether to become semi-independent countries within some future American federation or American territories or protectorates, to prevent becoming the next Crimea.  That sounds almost comical, lol, but it shows how karma works.  Seriously though, perhaps establishing English as second official language in more nations could help the Global Peace Alliance♥ goal of WORLD PEACE.  Time will tell. :)  

Long-term though, the world will move beyond languages to TELEPATHY, beyond trade to Materializing by Thought, so all these things like economy-language, etc will vanish.  :) More on the future of Teleporting Shapeshifting Immortals of the ONE WORLD OF PEACE can be found in the videos below, some featuring the Google Director of Engineering 

FUTURISTIC SCIENCE AND TECH VIDEOS



SHAPESHIFTING

Shapeshifting matter means a tablet will change into an anti-gravity flying belt & we'll overcome the tendency to look at outward appearance - looking instead at Compassionate Intelligence. :) We won't recognize people by their shape, form, gender, height, skin color, which all will be fluid and changeable, but by their kindness & IQ. :)  Here is a shapeshifting gadgets 3 minute video ► Intel Claytronics (Programmable Matter) - DARPA from Intel.  What is more amazing is when we can re-assemble subatomic particles some day, so that we take air, water or anything solid and shapeshift it into any material object or even nutrients in our bloodstream (eliminating the need to eat and fixing all molecular damage, curing all dis-eases, making us ☺☻♥Shimmering Immortals♥☻☺). We will then be able to 'materialize' things out of thin air. :) We will be able to shift our form :), much more than the octopus in this 1 min video: Shapeshifting Octopus, amazing camouflage

TELEPATHY

NANOYOU PART 5 - The Nano Future is a 2 min video about a nanoconcept of human-human telepathy using physical technology, tiny robots that swim in our blood or brain.  Using the same idea, in the future, holographic computers, made of light and/or energy, could assist our brains to use telepathy and navigate other dimensions.  The video talks about the disposable nanobots [the cellphones of the future] enabling us to become Immortal global telepaths. Computers become smaller, so smartphones will become nanobots. Forget email, texting and phone... telepathy is the future :) see, hear, smell, feel, think what others (who answer your '♥telepathy call♥') ☻☺think-feel-hear-see-smell☺☻, full communication :) Brainwaves can be recognized (every time we speak or think a word, there is a voice or brain pattern), as voice can be today, so telepathy will be natural. We'll even move beyond basic sensory + verbal telepathy to conceptual complex trans-linguistic telepathy allowing us to have a communication ☻a billion times richer and more exact than human languages today☻.

In the coming telepathy age we will communicate thru concepts, colors, images & true sensory information instead of language. It'll be a communication a billion times more exact, as you can get a nuanced version of every 'word' or 'bit of info' encoding. ☻Telepathy allows fast transfer of Immortality technologies, volumes of info as vast as the present internet processed in 1 minute by our new brains.  We'll evolve to use a trans-linguistic high speed telepathy & present human languages will disappear. 

Telepathy will obsolete the monetary system even, as blueprints for 'goods' (things are information patterns) are exchanged freely & as pico-technology materializing centers [within human template] provide ability to re-assemble dirt protons-neutrons into any object. We'll also be able to create perfect weather thru a planetary shield.  Compassion & Peace will prevail♥.  

"Race is a social concept, not a scientific one" according to Dr. Craig Venter, one of the first to see biological proof of this by sequencing the human genome. :)  Telepathy will help us see that even more, as the identification with language will disappear.  The New York Times article ► http://www.nytimes.com/2000/08/22/science/do-races-differ-not-really-genes-show.html made it clear even in 2000, after we sequenced the human genome, that race is a social construct, unsupported by scientific data.  Since 2000, many studies show within the same ethnicity/race there is often far more variation in DNA between  random people than between people of 2 nationalities.  Nationality is a very political social non-scientific label that has no basis in reality, since the nose, eye shape and skin-hair-eye color, appearance are just 0.01% of the DNA.   Science knows of tens of thousands of human genes so far and 3 genes have a role in how much melanin we have in eyes, hair, and skin. A little melanin means white skin, blue eyes, blonde hair; more melanin means darker eyes, hair, skin. :)  It's not worth having wars over such super-tiny differences.  Another article from Washington University highlights the illusion of races being real too ► http://wupa.wustl.edu/record_archive/1998/10-15-98/articles/races.html.  

TELEPORTATION

Teleportation will make fixed physical location outdated and nations will disappear as a result.  Anyone will be able to be anywhere. Professor Zeilinger hopes it will be possible to teleport people in a few decades, as the 7 min video explains: Visions 19 Beam me up :).

PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  There are other billionaires, Immortality efforts, scientists who gather and discuss at congresses about connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers have thought of Immortality for decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)  

WORLD PEACE

We will become a Type 1 Civilization, a unified planet of peace, as Michio Kaku explains in this 10 minute video about aliens of Type 1, 2, 3, etc and our future ► Michio Kaku - Alien Life.  He explains that the European Union is the beginning of a type 1 civilization. Type 0 are like us. Type 1 attained World Peace thru kindness, create perfect weather (no more climate change) & have no natural disasters.  Type 2 and above are Immortal.  Type 2 are those who engineer stars.  Type 3 engineer galaxies.  Type 4 engineer an entire universe.  Type 5 include Universe creators. Optimists don't attack others verbally/physically (fear=expecting/creating others' negative behavior), but with gentle forgiving compassion♥ they are kind to all, expecting/creating others' positive future behavior.  Saying/doing positive things creates a positive present/future, so kindness is optimism. If we're helping and praising others more, we'll attain ♥World Peace♥ faster.   Armies will be only for asteroid defense, terraforming.  We'll invest trillions (lost in wars) in healthcare, enabling us to live as long as we want. :)   Benjamin Rush, one of America's founders, wanted to set up a ♥ Department of Peace ♥  ► thepeacealliance.org, with the same budget as the Department of Defense ►en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_of_Peace.  All nations could create Departments of Peace and Immortality.:)☺☻☼ Imagine a world where human           #immortality and           #worldpeace   are real! :)  As we imagine, so we create... ♥  World Peace is required for true Longevity of thousands of years, let alone Immortality, since wars cause death.  World peace will come as we return compassion for hate, quantum computers for today's computers:), altruism for selfishness, gentleness for aggression, immortality focus for death focus.

It is likely one day USA, Canada, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Ukraine, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, South Africa, Vietnam, Australia, Turkey, European Union will join and form a GALACTIC UNION headquartered maybe:) in a moving GIGANTIC MOTHERSHIP ORBITING THE EARTH, with other  ♥GIGANTIC SELF-SUFFICIENT MOTHERSHIPS♥ IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM being rotating headquarters after we terraform other planets.  :)  The goal of our ☻♥Immortal Union of Altruistic Galactic Citizens♥☻ will be to Promote PEACE AND IMMORTALITY GALACTICALLY.  Within this Galactic Union that aims for Trans-Linguistic Telepathy to replace languages, we will also strive for the  Pursuit of Immortal Freedom, Immortal Happiness, Immortal Life.  "We, the citizens of the Galaxy, herein birth the Constitution of the GALACTIC UNION of Immortals... "  

BUILDING PARALLEL DIMENSIONS

Physical Immortality will be real one day & when we get bored of this dimension, we might even go to live in an inter-dimensional city by translation. Maybe we will be able to come back & use cosmic rays to precipitate an etheric-physical body template in a lighter more astral like dimension that resembles our physical one.  We will probably have millions of people willing and able to dispose of stomach, teeth, eating, reproductive organs, as human kids of 18 years old physiology could be precipitated by cosmic rays. Tech theoretically can allow kids with a billion parents, pro-creation done via 3d printing a "body for the soul" thru a mind-ray field of 1 billion Immortals, making everyone love any new born as if it's theirs as in true world peace and unity. :) That would be a little far out,lol, but not impossible since scientists today talk of birthing babies with 3 parents ► http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/27/us-ivf-3parent-idUSBREA1Q12420140227.  :)

MIND READING TECHNOLOGIES

The IBM 1 minute video on mind reading computers makes many wonder ► IBM Next 5 in 5 2011: Mind Reading. Selflessness-Honesty-Compassion-Understanding are enhanced by mind-reading technology. The super-intelligent ultra-compassionate ☼♥Shimmering♥☼ (due to luminescent picobots) ♥☻Immortals☻♥ (who are smarter than all science geniuses of the past combined) will be able to live without eating, shapeshift their forms & materialize anything (off-spring too, no reproductive organs needed). It will be natural to telepathically share the Bliss of Eternal Life with billions of Immortals in a mind-field of Ecstatic Joy.

ASTRAL MIND VERSUS BRAIN MIND Discoveries

There is proof we have more to our mind than the brain...  I guess it could be that selfless seekers of truth will become Immortal by discovering via other dimensions the locations of planets (soul body can travel at trillions of times the speed of physical light) of Immortals and maybe even co-creating with these Immortals a civilization of Immortals here. :) Entanglement (Quantum Entanglement is a video with mind/matter experiments) potentially allows us to see and connect to multiverse (Multiverse Theory by Dr Michio Kaku) planets (NASA astral star traveler: goo.gl/2j0Tv) where people attained peace & Immortality and where they are ready to help us move towards Peace. War=death, so only peaceful folks are Immortal.  The Selfless, Kind and Intellectual will be Immortal only, naturally - as those who are selfish war with each other and war leads to mortality via death. :)  Plus one needs to be super-intelligent to maintain one's Immortality.  Immortals may build their own dimension later. Long-term though, picobots will enable everyone to become 1000 times smarter than all geniuses of all current history combined eventually, so more people will engage in more intelligent selfless activities than today. :) picobots will enable all to learn in 10 minutes what we have learned in 10 years, to gain full learning at neuron level in a high-speed movie (there is no word for it, but it's a movie that has all knowledge in it, all the emotions, intentions, etc) of the lives of the greatest geniuses and their knowledge, universal compassion, selflessness and grace. :) Everyone will be like a super-genius sage, a soft song of boundless compassion for all. Mind reading gadgets will be about freedom from limitation and from 'low intelligence'. Why move our hands to dial a phone and use our mouth with voice recognition when we can control a computer with our mind and that energy of speaking can be spent learning something that would help us live a few thousand years in any dimension we want? :) Mind reading gadgets will be seen as a natural evolution towards Immortal kindness and Immortality in any realm we wish. :)

The photographs and videos of police trying to calm the rioting in Ferguson, Mo., look like a war zone. There’s the black-clad special-ops cops, backed by armored tactical vehicles that wouldn’t look out of place on a battlefield. The police are doing their best to restore order following Saturday’s police killing of unarmed Michael Brown, 18. But their tools and tactics have grabbed the attention of some of the nation’s real soldiers dispatched to fight its post-9/11 wars.

Brandon Friedman, who served as an Army officer with the 101st Airborne in Afghanistan and Iraq, tweeted a pair of photographs contrasting a policeman in Ferguson with one of him on the eve of the 2003 Iraq invasion. “The gentleman on the left,” he said of the Missouri cop Wednesday, “has more personal body armor and weaponry than I did while invading Iraq.”

“Army underequipped pros,” a commenter said. “Cops here overeq/amateurs.”

Actually, that’s not right. Local police departments are strapped for cash and can’t afford the high-tech body armor, communications gear, weapons and armored vehicles that have replaced the local cop’s nightstick, revolver and cruiser. Most of this beefed-up arsenal is coming from the world’s biggest Army-Navy surplus store: the Pentagon.

Ending the War on Fat
The scenes from Ferguson have reached a point where Mashable has posted photos from Afghanistan, Iraq, and Ferguson—and asked readers to try to figure out where they’re from. The Department of Defense told USA Today last year that Ferguson acquired two Humvees, a 10-kilowatt generator and an empty flatbed trailer. St. Louis County, whose police have been out in force in Ferguson, acquired much more equipment, according to the Missouri Department of Public Safety, including night vision goggles, Humvees and more.

With the Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected vehicles, Kevlar-vested and helmeted personnel, outfitted with serious-looking firepower, in some snapshots it’s tough to tell Ferguson from Firdos Square in Baghdad or Farah, Afghanistan.

To be sure, there are times when a law-enforcement challenge—rescuing hostages or taking down terrorists—requires such heavy-duty gear, including some military handdowns. But the use of SWAT—Special Weapons and Tactics— teams has leapfrogged from such serious cases to less-serious episodes of trying to calm civil unrest, where a less-confrontational approach might work better.

“American policing has become unnecessarily and dangerously militarized, in large part through federal programs that have armed state and local law enforcement agencies with the weapons and tactics of war, with almost no public discussion or oversight,” the American Civil Liberties Union reported in June. “The use of hyper-aggressive tools and tactics results in tragedy for civilians and police officers, escalates the risk of needless violence, destroys property, and undermines individual liberties.”

The Pentagon encourages the trend. Beginning with its effort to help fight the war on illegal drugs in 1997, the Defense Department’s provision of military gear to local police departments exploded following 9/11. “Since its inception, the [Law Enforcement Support Office] program has transferred more than $4.3 billion worth of property,” LESO says on its website. “In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71 worth of property was transferred to law enforcement.” (Seventy-one cents?)

There’s a bit of a sales pitch, too: “If your law enforcement agency chooses to participate, it may become one of the more than 8,000 participating agencies to increase its capabilities, expand its patrol coverage, reduce response times, and save the American taxpayer’s investment,” it adds, along with a proviso noting that the weapons “are on loan from the DOD and remain the property of the DOD. … Trading, bartering or selling of the weapons is strictly prohibited.”


In 2011 and 2012, the ACLU estimated that an 63 police departments received 500 Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicles, armored 20-ton behemoths (3-5 mpg) that were designed to defeat enemy roadside bombs in Afghanistan and Iraq. The New York Times reported in June that the Pentagon has given local police forces 435 other armored vehicles, 533 aircraft and nearly 94,000 machine guns.

This has at least a few cops wondering what’s going on. “We’re not the military,” Salt Lake City Police Chief Chris Burbank has said. “Nor should we look like an invading force coming in.”

An ex-Boston police lieutenant—from a force not known for its gentler, kinder demeanor—agrees. “Have no doubt, police in the United States are militarizing, and in many communities, particularly those of color, the message is being received loud and clear: ‘You are the enemy,’” Tom Nolan, who spent 27 years on the Beantown beat, wrote for Defense One in June. “Police officers are increasingly arming themselves with military-grade equipment such as assault rifles, flashbang grenades, and Mine Resistant Ambush Protected, or MRAP, vehicles and dressing up in commando gear before using battering rams to burst into the homes of people who have not been charged with a crime.”

The ACLU said its analysis showed that 79% of SWAT missions were for drug investigations, while 7% were for hostage or barricade situations. It also noted that more than half of the SWAT deployments tracked were aimed at minorities. “The incidents we studied,” it added, “revealed stark, often extreme, racial disparities in the use of SWAT locally, especially in cases involving search warrants.”

We’ve been through similar, if not precise, episodes before: Think of the Ohio National Guard killing four students with their M1 Garand rifles at Kent State University in Ohio in 1970, for example. The troops turned on the students after some lobbed rocks and tear-gas canisters toward them. A presidential commission refrained from concluding why the Guardsmen fired the estimated 67 shots, but concluded that “the indiscriminate firing of rifles into a crowd of students and the deaths that followed were unnecessary, unwarranted, and inexcusable.”

Of course, they were military troops. In Ferguson, those now wielding them are local law-enforcement officers, many of whom lack the training—and the command and control of their use—that most military units receive.

World renowned GA preacher says don’t be afraid of the dark

ATLANTA (CBS46) - We all want our 15 minutes of fame, but when Time magazine says you're one of the 100 most influential people in the world, that's serious. That's also reality for a woman who's long called Georgia home. Barbara Brown Taylor is known worldwide as an acclaimed preacher, theologian and author. She talked recently about her new book and in it, she says, enlighten your life by going to a dark place. Barbara said, “I noticed how automatically I and a lot of people I know turn on lights the minute it gets a little murky. And I mean that in the physical world, the spiritual world, the relational world and emotional world.” Her latest book got a Time magazine cover story recently with the headline ‘Finding God in the Dark.' However, she says her book is for believers or non-believers because it challenges the belief that darkness is inherently bad. She said, “God shows up in dark clouds all the time. We just don't pay attention. We like the bright clouds not the dark clouds. Or I can go to experience and tell you story after story about people who've said they've gone through dark nights of [...]

SF6, sulfur hexafluoride, is a gas that looks like air but is heavier than air. :)

Sulfur hexafluoride is an inorganic, colorless, odorless, non-flammable gas. It has a density of 6.12 g/L, higher than the density of air (1.225 g/L).

#science  is fun :)

Science allows us to understand exactly how this happens. :)  We could say that science will also allow us to bring what is thought of as sci-fi or magic into the everyday reality, things like curing aging, eternal youth, telepathy, teleportation, shapeshifting, physical immortality, world peace as explained in the tech-filled videos below (some feature the Google Director of Engineering). 

FUTURISTIC SCIENCE AND TECH VIDEOS



SHAPESHIFTING

Shapeshifting matter means a tablet will change into an anti-gravity flying belt & we'll overcome the tendency to look at outward appearance - looking instead at Compassionate Intelligence. :) We won't recognize people by their shape, form, gender, height, skin color, which all will be fluid and changeable, but by their kindness & IQ. :)  Here is a shapeshifting gadgets 3 minute video ► Intel Claytronics (Programmable Matter) - DARPA from Intel.  What is more amazing is when we can re-assemble subatomic particles some day, so that we take air, water or anything solid and shapeshift it into any material object or even nutrients in our bloodstream (eliminating the need to eat and fixing all molecular damage, curing all dis-eases, making us ☺☻♥Shimmering Immortals♥☻☺). We will then be able to 'materialize' things out of thin air. :) We will be able to shift our form :), much more than the octopus in this 1 min video: Shapeshifting Octopus, amazing camouflage

TELEPATHY

NANOYOU PART 5 - The Nano Future is a 2 min video about a nanoconcept of human-human telepathy using physical technology, tiny robots that swim in our blood or brain.  Using the same idea, in the future, holographic computers, made of light and/or energy, could assist our brains to use telepathy and navigate other dimensions.  The video talks about the disposable nanobots [the cellphones of the future] enabling us to become Immortal global telepaths. Computers become smaller, so smartphones will become nanobots. Forget email, texting and phone... telepathy is the future :) see, hear, smell, feel, think what others (who answer your '♥telepathy call♥') ☻☺think-feel-hear-see-smell☺☻, full communication :) Brainwaves can be recognized (every time we speak or think a word, there is a voice or brain pattern), as voice can be today, so telepathy will be natural. We'll even move beyond basic sensory + verbal telepathy to conceptual complex trans-linguistic telepathy allowing us to have a communication ☻a billion times richer and more exact than human languages today☻.

In the coming telepathy age we will communicate thru concepts, colors, images & true sensory information instead of language. It'll be a communication a billion times more exact, as you can get a nuanced version of every 'word' or 'bit of info' encoding. ☻Telepathy allows fast transfer of Immortality technologies, volumes of info as vast as the present internet processed in 1 minute by our new brains.  We'll evolve to use a trans-linguistic high speed telepathy & present human languages will disappear. 

Telepathy will obsolete the monetary system even, as blueprints for 'goods' (things are information patterns) are exchanged freely & as pico-technology materializing centers [within human template] provide ability to re-assemble dirt protons-neutrons into any object. We'll also be able to create perfect weather thru a planetary shield.  Compassion & Peace will prevail♥.  

TELEPORTATION

Teleportation will make fixed physical location outdated and nations will disappear as a result.  Anyone will be able to be anywhere. Professor Zeilinger hopes it will be possible to teleport people in a few decades, as the 7 min video explains: Visions 19 Beam me up :). Certainly ☻♥Immortal Humans♥☻ should be able to teleport, why not. :)  Michio Kaku explains more teleportation in this 1 min video ► Michio Kaku on Teleportation.  Nations and languages will disappear and a multi-planetary Galactic Union of Immortals - GUI :) -  (extended to many planets we will terraform and colonize) will emerge.  

PHYSICAL IMMORTALITY

Quantum computers (here is a 6 min video from Google about their potential to help us understand the multi-verse, time-travel, Immortal aliens, etc Google and NASA's Quantum Artificial Intelligence Lab) will make possible another faster billion fold increase in computation power/dollar (as the one that happened in the last 3 decades) so we will have petaflop supercomputers the size of red blood cells, nanobots that could repair cells and enable us to live for thousands of years as Google Director of Engineering explains in this 4 min clipRay Kurzweil — Immortality by 2045.  Already, today microrobots can do amazing things, as they travel thru our blood vessels, see this 2 min video for more info:  Micro robot aids surgery

A Recent Time Magazine Cover asked if Google can solve death thru  the founding of Calico, a company that aims to cure aging using Google's vast computational resources to figure out which genes cause aging, etc.  Some say that this is a hundreds of millions of dollars effort over several yearsgoo.gl/BFtcC2.   Here is a post about Calico from the Google CEO ► goo.gl/Jge6dk.  Defeating aging has been the dream of humanity for eons, but these days, with science we are getting much closer to that dream.  Worms have been created that can live 6 times longer by 17 year old Laura Deming who explains her wish to bring Physical Immortality to all interested in this 5 min clip ► Laura Deming - 20U20 Episode 1. Laura has started IMMORTAL IP, a Venture Capital Fund to bring Immortality Tech faster to the mass market.  Calico will inspire more companies to enter the market for curing aging and Physical Immortality therapies.  

Calico is not alone.  Other billionaires have started Immortality efforts.  There are scientists within these projects who even talk of connecting the soul body (not all believe in it though) with the immortal android bodies of the future. Mystics and emperors have sought physical immortality for millennia.  Modern astral researchers and mystics (vallalar.org) have thought of Immortality for many decades.  
ASPR OBE Experiment 1983 is a 25 min video about some ESP experiments.  In the video Alex Tanous explains at 7min22sec how the scientific understanding of astral energy will enable us to attain physical Immortality - just like understanding electricity brought us a lot of progress in medicine.  

Ray Kurzweil wrote a book about Immortality by 2045 and TIME Magazine published an article called "2045: The Year Man Becomes Immortal"goo.gl/wRN64 and had a cover page about it.  Body temp element transmutation nanobots (future quantum computers maybe, who knows?) can make nutrients for cells directly from air, take back waste chemicals from cells and turn these chemicals into molecules cells need, thus eliminating the need to eat.   Nikola Tesla, one of the greatest geeks of all time, whose inventions are in every home with electricity, predicted one day we would live without eating.  Combined with terraforming billions of barren planets, Living on Nanobot Energy eliminates any worry about agriculture land, food or space.  All want Immortality♥ or at least living in perfect health. One day the trillions spent on war (that shortens our lives) will be used for nano robots and quantum computers that help us stay youthful for centuries.  :) 

Over time, more and more people in governments and private sectors will allocate hundreds of billions of dollars towards Immortality related projects.  Some billionaires have given already hundreds of millions of dollars to stem cells research ($100 Million Gift from T. Denny Sanford Launches Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center) and other anti-aging ventures.    This process of shifting the societal focus to constructive Immortality endeavors will be done in hundreds of ways, even thru Departments of Immortality at the Government level and University Level, thru new startups that focus on anti-gravity belts or nanobots and apps able to extend lifespan.  Video games will often be about how people help each other, how they find Immortality technologies and cures for aging, how they bring a World of Peace and Immortality.  A culture of Immortality will emerge and pervade the contents of movies, songs, TV programs, radio, books, and all media, thus enabling us to create that reality of Immortality.   Life will be valued more than anything else. :)  Millions of people will dedicate their entire lives to manifesting this great Immortality future because inside we are all beings of compassion. :)  

WORLD PEACE

We will become a Type 1 Civilization, a unified planet of peace, as Michio Kaku explains in this 10 minute video about aliens of Type 1, 2, 3, etc and our future ► Michio Kaku - Alien Life.  He explains that the European Union is the beginning of a type 1 civilization. Type 0 are like us. Type 1 attained World Peace thru kindness, create perfect weather (no more climate change) & have no natural disasters.  Type 2 and above are Immortal.  Type 2 are those who engineer stars.  Type 3 engineer galaxies.  Type 4 engineer an entire universe.  Type 5 include Universe creators. Optimists don't attack others verbally/physically (fear=expecting/creating others' negative behavior), but with gentle forgiving compassion♥ they are kind to all, expecting/creating others' positive future behavior.  Saying/doing positive things creates a positive present/future, so kindness is optimism. If we're helping and praising others more, we'll attain ♥World Peace♥ faster.   Armies will be only for asteroid defense, terraforming.  We'll invest trillions (lost in wars) in healthcare, enabling us to live as long as we want. :)   Benjamin Rush, one of America's founders, wanted to set up a ♥ Department of Peace ♥  ► thepeacealliance.org, with the same budget as the Department of Defense ►en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Department_of_Peace.  All nations could create Departments of Peace and Immortality.:)☺☻☼ Imagine a world where human                         #immortality and                       #worldpeace     are real! :)  As we imagine, so we create... ♥  World Peace is required for true Longevity of thousands of years, let alone Immortality, since wars cause death.  World peace will come as we return compassion for hate, quantum computers for today's computers:), altruism for selfishness, gentleness for aggression, immortality focus for death focus.

The reason world peace will manifest is that people will realize nationality and race are illusions.  "Race is a social concept, not a scientific one" according to Dr. Craig Venter, one of the first to see biological proof of this by sequencing the human genome. :)  The New York Times article ► http://www.nytimes.com/2000/08/22/science/do-races-differ-not-really-genes-show.html made it clear even in 2000, after we sequenced the human genome, that race is a social label, unsupported by scientific data.  Since 2000, many studies show within the same ethnicity/race there is often far more variation in DNA between  random people than between people of 2 nationalities.  Nationality is a very political social non-scientific label that has no basis in reality, since the nose, eye shape and skin-hair-eye color, appearance are just 0.01% of the DNA.   Science knows of tens of thousands of human genes so far and 3 genes have a role in how much melanin we have in eyes, hair, and skin. A little melanin means white skin, blue eyes, blonde hair; more melanin means darker eyes, hair, skin. :)  It's not worth having wars over such super-tiny differences.  Another article from Washington University highlights the illusion of races being real too ► http://wupa.wustl.edu/record_archive/1998/10-15-98/articles/races.html.  

It is likely one day USA, Canada, Mexico, India, New Zealand, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Indonesia, Ukraine, Philippines, Thailand, Cambodia, South Korea, South Africa, Vietnam, Australia, Turkey, European Union, etc will join and form a GALACTIC UNION headquartered maybe:) in a moving GIGANTIC MOTHERSHIP ORBITING THE EARTH, with other  ♥GIGANTIC SELF-SUFFICIENT MOTHERSHIPS♥ IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM being rotating headquarters after we terraform other planets.  :)  Everyone will like the advances we reach thru teamwork and all nations will join this Union eventually.  :)  The goal of this ☻♥Immortal Union of Altruistic Galactic Citizens♥☻ will be to Promote PEACE AND IMMORTALITY GALACTICALLY.  Within this Galactic Union that aims for Trans-Linguistic Telepathy to replace languages, we will also strive for the  Pursuit of Immortal Freedom, Immortal Happiness, Immortal Life.  "We, the citizens of the Galaxy, herein birth the Constitution of the GALACTIC UNION of Immortals... "  

BUILDING PARALLEL DIMENSIONS

Physical Immortality will be real one day & when we get bored of this dimension, we might even go to live in an inter-dimensional city by translation. Maybe we will be able to come back & use cosmic rays to precipitate an etheric-physical body template in a lighter more astral like dimension that resembles our physical one.  We will probably have millions of people willing and able to dispose of stomach, teeth, eating, reproductive organs, as human kids of 18 years old physiology could be precipitated by cosmic rays. Tech theoretically can allow kids with a billion parents, pro-creation done via 3d printing a "body for the soul" thru a mind-ray field of 1 billion Immortals, making everyone love any new born as if it's theirs as in true world peace and unity. :) That would be a little far out,lol, but not impossible since scientists today talk of birthing babies with 3 parents ► http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/27/us-ivf-3parent-idUSBREA1Q12420140227.  :)

MIND READING TECHNOLOGIES

The IBM 1 minute video on mind reading computers makes many wonder ► IBM Next 5 in 5 2011: Mind Reading. Selflessness-Honesty-Compassion-Understanding are enhanced by mind-reading technology. The super-intelligent ultra-compassionate ☼♥Shimmering♥☼ (due to luminescent picobots) ♥☻Immortals☻♥ (who are smarter than all science geniuses of the past combined) will be able to live without eating, shapeshift their forms & materialize anything (off-spring too, no reproductive organs needed). It will be natural to telepathically share the Bliss of Eternal Life with billions of Immortals in a mind-field of Ecstatic Joy.

ASTRAL MIND VERSUS BRAIN MIND Discoveries

There is proof we have more to our mind than the brain... as oberf.org, noetic.org, nderf.org, iacworld.org, iipc.org, monroeinstitute.org and other research centers explain.  I guess it could be that selfless seekers of truth will one day become Immortal by discovering via other dimensions the locations of planets (soul body can travel at trillions of times the speed of physical light) of Immortals and co-creating with these Immortals a civilization of Immortals here. :) Entanglement (Quantum Entanglement is a video with mind/matter experiments) potentially allows us to see and connect to multiverse (Multiverse Theory by Dr Michio Kaku) planets (NASA astral star traveler: goo.gl/2j0Tv) where people attained peace & Immortality and where they are ready to help us move towards Peace. War=death, so only peaceful folks are Immortal.  The Selfless, Kind and Intellectual will be Immortal only, naturally - as those who are selfish war with each other and war leads to mortality via death. :)  Plus one needs to be super-intelligent to maintain one's Immortality.  Immortals may build their own dimension later. Long-term though, picobots will enable everyone to become 1000 times smarter than all geniuses of all current history combined eventually, so more people will engage in more intelligent selfless activities than today. :) picobots will enable all to learn in 10 minutes what we have learned in 10 years, to gain full learning at neuron level in a high-speed movie (there is no word for it, but it's a movie that has all knowledge in it, all the emotions, intentions, etc) of the lives of the greatest geniuses and their knowledge, universal compassion, selflessness and grace. :) Everyone will be like a super-genius sage, a soft song of boundless compassion for all. Mind reading gadgets will be about freedom from limitation and from 'low intelligence'. Why move our hands to dial a phone and use our mouth with voice recognition when we can control a computer with our mind and that energy of speaking can be spent learning something that would help us live a few thousand years in any dimension we want? :) Mind reading gadgets will be seen as a natural evolution towards Immortal kindness and Immortality in any realm we wish. :)
