Seeking Context

 Swamped Again,

  There is so much raw information today, not just abstracted information, but the rawness of human anguish, rage, hate and avarice, as well. This integrates more broadly than individual feelings, or even group-rage, I think. Human societies behave as "superorganisms", and we can see that, but what if there is a form of consciousness to such superorganisms, and we are only studying individual humans and small group interactions and miss it? We have probably all looked back at the German "holocaust" years and witch-burnings, and wondered how people could do that. It seems to be apparent now that when people feel hungry and threatened for a long time, even if it is not in absolute terms, but they live in precarity, then a sudden crisis can galvanize society into naming scapegoats to dehumanize and kill. 
  The comfort-level of living in the US declined after 9/11/01, and declined further in steps after that, being brought to crisis during COVID and lockdowns.It became clear to me and to a lot of people, that government misdirection about COVID treatment was more sinister than stupid by the summer of 2020, but we still failed to grasp where it would be a year later, with the dehumanization of "the unvaccinated''. Many Americans supported putting "the unvaccinated" into concentration camps, and certainly firing from their jobs. 
  Jenny and I had taught our teenagers about WW-2 and "The Killing Fields" in Cambodia, during our travels to the Anne Frank House, Dachau concentration camp, and Tuol Sleng museum in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. This was a thing that ordinary people did to other ordinary people in these kinds of severe times. How could we know when it was starting, in order to get out? How many times have I considered that since childhood? Star Trek did an alternate-universe episode like that once.
  When I saw the sudden blacklisting of everybody who refused experimental-vaccination against COVID, and I already knew how well antiviral treatments worked, I saw that it was that time in America. Surprisingly, I saw that I needed to immediately, openly and outspokenly stand with the "untermenschen". Others saw this too. The Houston Methodist-Hospital Nurses had already accepted firing when I took my stand. How could I do less? The critical moment of fear passed with about 25% of American adults (perhaps more) having refused the experimental gene-therapy "vaccines", and none of us seems to have deep regrets today. That tide was turned by the resolute morality of some vilified healthcare workers at all levels of training and expertise, who accepted punishment and shunning, rather than participate in the wave of punishment and shunning of others.

  What is a "world war"? My study of history tells me that a world war resets the international paradigm of trade and financial transactions. WW-1 and WW-2 did this. That may seem like a trivialization, but who makes such decisions, and what do they look at and consider in the process? Power and wealth are represented through finance, so finance is a simplified model to use when considering the dynamics of wealth and power.
  The post-WW-2 financial system is burdened by unserviceable debt at this point, paying the interest by borrowing more, a Ponzi scheme. The 2008 crisis was "managed" by going-bigger, not addressing the inconsistencies in the system. In the next and final crash those inconsistencies will have to be remedied. Perhaps payoff on debts-owed could be 20% if the economy kept working, but it won't be working. It will fall into something like command-economies, wartime-economies, with restraints on all kinds of international trade, notably energy and food, but everything else, too.
  It is not difficult to see the current international struggles as being pre-positioning for the breakout of WW-3. I see that as the right way to look at them. It seems to me that the collapse of the compound-interest-debt-based-money system will be replaced with a system of representative value, based on commodities like gold, oil and grain, and already in existence, as is being proposed for BRICS+, though it may take a long time for a new "currency" to be agreed upon. "Investments" as we now know them will mostly disappear, including retirement plans. "Ownership" of productinve land, properties, mines, wells, factories, utilities and pipelines will be hotly contested. Current "owners", typified by WEF types, should not remain in primacy, though that is their well-funded project. This stands to be more sever than WW-1 or WW-2, and different in form.

  Yet there may be another level of "superorganism" to consider, our planet-mother, Gaia. I have recently seen a metaphysical model that predicts Gaia will undergo a planetary-consciousness phase-transition to a more spiritually harmonious planetary-mind in about a week. I'm working to help that, whether it becomes observable or not. As it is presented, some people will be able to engage it, but others will stay stuck in a competitive-world model. That's how things are now, so I'll just keep on praying for peace in human souls and paying attention.

  John Helmer has the view from inside Russia, an important vantage:  
  Russians have never had a higher level of confidence in the Army since the end of World War II,  according to a national poll just published by the independent Levada Centre of Moscow.
  This also means a record level of confidence in the General Staff to outwit the principal enemy of the country, the United States, and defeat it and its allies on the Ukrainian battlefield. Most Russians now believe this war will take the Russian Army at least another six months, and more likely a year to finish.
  This new poll signals that most Russians believe it prudent not to fight the US with the same intensity in two long wars at the same time – in the Ukraine and in the Middle East — because the Army has decided so. This is despite the overwhelming Russian support for the Palestinians in their fight for survival against Israel. No poll is allowed to measure and publish this support,   and the emotional reaction the majority of Russians feels towards the operations of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and the US military to destroy the population of Gaza.
  “We should not, we have no right and we cannot allow ourselves to be carried away by emotions,” President Vladimir Putin announced on October 30.  
  “We must clearly understand who in reality is behind the tragedy of peoples in the Middle East and in other regions around the world, who has been organising this lethal chaos and who benefits from it. In my opinion, it has already become clear to everyone, as the masterminds brazenly act in the open. These are the current ruling elites in the United States and its satellites who are the main beneficiaries of the global instability that they use to extract their bloody rent. Their strategy is also clear. The United States as a global superpower is becoming weaker and is losing its position, and everyone sees and understands this.”
  This is the president running for re-election in five months’ time, speaking directly to Russian voters, reflecting what the polls on his desk tell him they already believe...

..Levada also reveals an unusual analysis it has carried out to gauge the nature of Russian sentiment for waging war against the country’s enemies. The result is the first clear signal that most Russians trust the Army to defeat the enemy on the battlefield more than they trust Putin to negotiate an agreement on paper with US and NATO officials...
​..In the special session Putin called on Monday of the major ministries and security chiefs, he began by saying that “the Defense Minister [Sergei Shoigu] is back from his official trip abroad, and he will brief us on its outcomes and report on the progress of the special military operation.”   Shoigu had just returned from China. What he said there in public was that Russia was fighting a world war on three fronts. The US-led allies were “covering up the buildup of military force in the Asia-Pacific region with an ostentatious desire for dialogue, imposing alliances and lines of operational interaction on partners…Having provoked an acute crisis in Europe, the West is seeking to spread conflict potential to the Asia-Pacific region, and in several directions.”  
​  The war in Gaza is one of these “directions”, one of the war fronts, Shoigu said in Beijing; and Putin repeated the next day.​..
..(Putin)​  "I would like to say once again that we must realise where the root of evil lies. We must know where the spider that is trying to entangle the entire planet and the whole world in its cobweb is. It wants to ensure our strategic defeat on the battlefield, and it is using people on the territory of contemporary Ukraine who have been brainwashed by it for decades. I would like to stress once again that, while fighting this enemy in the course of the special military operation, we are boosting the positions of all those who are struggling for their independence and sovereignty.” ...
​..This is the first time in public Putin has linked the war goal of denazification of the Ukraine with the “future of the Palestinian people”. Putin is implying what the unpublished Russian polls show the majority of the country thinks – between the fascist regime in Kiev and the Israeli government in Tel Aviv, there is no difference.
​  This is as explicitly as Putin has gone since October 7 to rebuff the line in several of the state propaganda organs of Moscow that the Arab war is not Russia’s fight, and that Russia should stay out of it.  
​  “There’s something much bigger left unsaid,” a well-informed Moscow source adds, “which puts the people behind the war effort in the last week, and that is what Israel is doing to Gaza. That is what Brits and Americans did to Dresden and Hiroshima. That is what Germans did to Leningrad and Stalingrad. Russians, accused of anti-semitism and sympathy for Hamas by the usual media mouthpieces put two and two together and understand what awaited Russians of Donbass.  They see Gaza and understand the race hatred and cruelty of the western axis. The bombing of Gaza reminds Russians what was done to their grandparents and what would be done to them if they do not win this war.” ...
​..“The moral high ground is already held by Russia as Putin has just said,” a Moscow source comments, “while the state propaganda line portrays Russia as against ‘terrorism’, ‘genocide’, and ‘fascism’.” On the battlefield, he says, the situation is “far more grim. The satellite pictures show they [IDF] now have about 400 vehicles in total. They will overrun all of North Gaza while flooding or gassing the tunnels.”
​  For how long can Hamas defend against this without the opening of the other fronts to force the diversion of the IDF, stretch the US rearm and  resupply capacities even further, and lengthen the war? There are pro-Russian military veteran sources who believe not long enough. “The Iranians are showing themselves to be blowhards. Hezbollah is afraid of the US response. Both know they risk losing power and position if the war escalates. Israel has called their bluff. Islamic ‘unity’ is proving to be hollow — a dead end.”
​  The Moscow source concurs. “When this is over, it will take away any chance of change to status quo for at least a decade. The only defeat it appears will still come in Ukraine​, 
but not in Palestine.

​Russia grinds away methodically over most of the line-of-contest with Ukraine. 
We Have Never Seen Such Fierce And Bloody Battles. Military Summary And Analysis For 2023.11.02

  ​Patrick Lawrence, Deeper Into Depravity
​  By common agreement among many lawyers, scholars of international law, special rapporteurs, and the like—including Israelis in these fields—what we witness daily now is by all acceptable definitions a genocide. Whether or not Israel is committing war crimes by the hour is not even worth debating. But I am taken up now by the spectacle of human beings who have allowed themselves to be destroyed in the name of an ideology that proves every bit as racist as it was when, in 1975, the U.N. General Assembly declared Zionism to be so. Resolution 3379 was revoked in 1991; it should not have been.
​  I am reminded of what I learned years ago when studying the Japanese Imperial Army’s conduct in China and Korea before and during World War II and the long record of the Kempeitai, commonly known as Imperial Japan’s Thought Police. Victimizers, I came to conclude with conviction, are victims, too. This holds for the people in the videos I have recently viewed and for every Israeli wearing an IDF uniform. They have been stripped of all ordinary decency by the radical ideologues of “the Jewish state.” They can laugh or sneer or pull all the triggers they like: Their lives, too, have been destroyed.​..

​..I saw an interview Sunday with a Defense Department contractor who has visited Israel dozens of times over many years on DoD work. He recounted the steady decline in any belief in a peaceful settlement of the Israel–Palestine crisis that he has detected since 2007. For most Israelis, he observed, it is down to violence now. A headline in Monday’s editions of The Times, recording these changing desires and expectations: “I Don’t Have That Empathy. It’s Not Me Anymore.” This is the voice of a nation that has demolished itself in its attempts to destroy others.
​  A couple of weeks ago in this space I published a commentary asserting that the two-state solution to the Israel–Palestine question is dead, and a single, secular state is the only way forward. I had some mail afterward to the effect that a one-state solution is too far from reality to think about. I will reply here that these readers have it upside-down. A one-state solution is now the only realistic idea worth considering. Until Israelis accept that they must live in a single nation wherein Palestinians dwell as equal citizens, there is no more future for them than there is for Palestinians. They, Israelis, will be condemned to live in a walled-off garrison state that will come to look ever more like a commodious version of the “open-air prison” we speak of when we speak of Gaza.

​  The Cycle Of Evil , Egon von Gryerz
​  We are on the inevitable road to perdition for the world economy & financial system, ending in a potential global conflict of uncontrollable proportions.
Evil begets evil as The Cycle of Evil hits countries at the end of an uncontrollable debt expansion.
​  The pattern throughout history has always been the same – countries and empires, without fail, become victims of their own success -failure, whether it was the Mongols, Ottomans or the British.
​  As real growth ceases, a country starts to finance expansion with debt until it cannot even afford the interest on the debt, never mind the capital which it has no intention to repay.
​  At some point, the people, fearing a war or terrorist attack will approve of the leader’s fear mongering by supporting unlimited debt issuance. This is now happening in the US with regard to Ukraine and Israel.
​  Neither the US nor Europe is taking a single step to remedy the situation.
​  The spokeswoman for the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR), Elizabeth Trussell, said that the commission documented crimes against humanity committed by “Israel” in Gaza.
​  This comes after a series of massacres committed by the Zionist occupation, the most recent of which was in Jabalia Camp in the northern Gaza Strip.
Trussell added in media statements that “the UNHCHR has submitted reports in this regard and will continue to document Israeli violations in the Gaza Strip.”

  ​It appears that the US, Israel, NATO, 5-eyes, etc. will continue the grinding aerial and infantry grinding out of all life in Gaza until stopped, or until 2.3 million native Palestinians are killed and removed from their ancestral land. 
  ‘Operation Al-Aqsa Flood’ Day 27: Biden calls for ‘pause’ for first time since fighting began
Palestinians are desperate for international intervention to end Israel’s ongoing onslaught and siege. President Biden calls for a pause over concern for Israeli captives, as Gaza death toll surpasses 9,000.

  Look, I'm supposed to stop worrying because they might stop bombing children on their own soon.
Seymour Hersh: Israel Won't Stop Bombing Gaza Until It Destroys 65% of Hamas Tunnels
​  Moreover, “The slow approach takes time. How much time does Israel have to pursue this war?” the source said, referencing growing worldwide protests against the IDF operation in Gaza.
​  Hersh, for his part, pointed out that the Israeli Air Force (IAF) is doing its best to obliterate “the extensive Hamas tunnel system that includes exits and entrances underneath the thousands of residential and office buildings in Gaza City.”
​  In this vein, the source told the journalist that almost 50 percent of the targeted buildings inside Gaza City have already been destroyed, and that "the bombing is scheduled to continue until the IAF reaches its goal of wiping out 65 percent of the possible citywide escape routes for the Hamas leadership and its fighters."

​  Hamas' military wing, the Qassam Brigades, said on Wednesday that seven hostages, including three foreigners, were killed as a result of Israel's strike on the Jabalia refugee camp on October 31.

​  The Israeli Air Force on Tuesday bombed the Jabaliyaa refugee camp in Gaza, killing or wounding at least 400 persons and destroying the Block Six residential complex, felling 20 buildings. More victims are believed to be under the rubble.An Israeli military spokesman said that the strike was directed at Hamas leader Ibrahim Biari, a mastermind of the October 7 attack on Israel. Although Israeli authorities proclaimed that they had succeeded in killing Biari, Hamas announced that he was still very much alive.
​  It should be noted that the Palestinians, now dead or wounded, living in Jabaliyaa are refugees because Zionist forces ethnically cleansed them from what is now southern Israel in 1948 and expelled them as refugees to Gaza. Some 70% of the families in Gaza are such refugees. Israeli state concerns for the security of towns in southern Israel is concern to protect squatter-settlements where these Palestinians used to live.
​  Killing and wounding 400 noncombatants and destroying 20 residential buildings to get at one target, even if the target is a wanted terrorist, is strictly forbidden under the post-World War II laws of war and International Humanitarian law.

Lindsey Graham insists no amount of Palestinian deaths should make the US put the brakes on Israel
The US should stand by Israel in its campaign against Hamas no matter how heavy a toll it takes on the civilian population in Gaza, Senator Lindsey Graham has argued. He likened Israel’s military operation against the militants to the allies’ struggle against Nazi Germany and Japan during World War II.

​  Another lawmaker, Ofer Cassif, told the Strategic Culture Foundation that the Netanyahu government is ramping up repressive powers against any form of opposition to its military and security policies.
​  Cassif says public meetings throughout Israel are being banned for any groups who are calling for an end to the violence and for negotiations to prevail. He says the persecution is particularly sharp against Palestinians living in Israeli territory. Still, all citizens including Jews who are speaking out against war are liable to be charged as “terrorists”.

​Retracted for political reasons:  The origin of Palestinians and their genetic relatedness with other Mediterranean populations
​Abstract: The genetic profile of Palestinians has, for the first time, been studied by using human leukocyte antigen (HLA) gene variability and haplotypes. The comparison with other Mediterranean populations by using neighbor-joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses reveal that Palestinians are genetically very close to Jews and other Middle East populations, including Turks (Anatolians), Lebanese, Egyptians, Armenians, and Iranians. Archaeologic and genetic data support that both Jews and Palestinians came from the ancient Canaanites, who extensively mixed with Egyptians, Mesopotamian, and Anatolian peoples in ancient times. Thus, Palestinian-Jewish rivalry is based in cultural and religious, but not in genetic, differences. The relatively close relatedness of both Jews and Palestinians to western Mediterranean populations reflects the continuous circum-Mediterranean cultural and gene flow that have occurred in prehistoric and historic times. This flow overtly contradicts the demic diffusion model of western Mediterranean populations substitution by agriculturalists coming from the Middle East in the Mesolithic-Neolithic transition.

​  Spartacus had another long conversation with Chat-GPT, now that Chat GPT can upload and read PDF publications. The topic was the developments by DARPA and others of microbio-transceiver technologies, 6G wireless communication technologies in development and official governmental position papers from US, UK and Germany about how this is to be approached without public debate. I picked this out of the summary, but the conversation with the robot is very instructive.
​  The technocrats, like the head honchos at the WEF, are strict materialists and don’t believe humans have souls. To them, we’re basically absurd collections of molecules with deterministic behavior, which could be represented as data. That’s what biodigital convergence fundamentally means; life as data and data as life. Encoding the configuration of molecules that makes a “human” into data, and then decoding it back into an organism.

​  Earth’s Hidden Guests: Strange Blobs in Deep Mantle Are the Remains of an Ancient Planet
​  A Caltech-led study suggests that two massive, iron-rich structures deep within Earth’s mantle are the remains of Theia, an ancient planet that collided with Earth, also creating the Moon. This discovery answers long-standing questions about the Moon’s origin and Theia’s fate.
​  In the 1980s, geophysicists made a startling discovery: two continent-sized blobs of unusual material were found deep near the center of the Earth, one beneath the African continent and one beneath the Pacific Ocean. Each blob is twice the size of the Moon and likely composed of different proportions of elements than the mantle surrounding it.
