Troubling Dream


  I awoke troubled by a dream early yesterday morning, and puzzled by it. I have just read a compilation of articles about "human machine hybrids" which is evoking the same feelings that I had in the dream, and which remain with me...
Chris sent this link to 10 articles, including  "Privacy and the Connected Mind", and "The internet of Bodies".
  Part 2 is perhaps more chilling than part 1, perhaps. These white-papers by governmental, military and corporate "stakeholders" in artificial intelligence and brain-computer-interfaces already have machines with biological computers, and sharks controlled remotely by hardwired computer interfaces. It's presented in the most pleasant light possible. Everybody being connected to an artificially-intelligent brain internet "could potentially increase diversity", for instance.
  One recurring argument is that this is coming, so either embrace it and "win" or spurn it and "lose", especially militarily. This argument assumes some fixed role of the status-quo, at least the worst forms of oppression, in the face of fundamental changes in biological existence, and advises choosing the lesser evil of becoming a cyborg to "your own side" proactively.
  Missing from all of this is any consideration of the spiritual nature, the "meaning" of life as an intelligent, empathic and emotional being, with profound experiences of reality.  It's easy to see how that is completely invisible to this approach, to these sterile explorations, selling the nicest points of what inherently extends the internet into human brains and bodies. Shall I have my thoughts censored? Shall I experience pain or hunger if I do not do as I am directed. Will I get a little burst of pleasure each time I comply? Will I really have a choice in what my body does? What will become of my body when it is old, sluggish and creaky?
  This is the "Fourth Industrial Revolution" plan for western industrial society. We need not be concerned for any of our needs, as that is well above our pay grade. We can find "meaning" in any of thousands of virtual-reality worlds, which we can share with other minds through the world-interfaces. This will be our new home. Our bodies can be nourished and made comfortable quite cheaply and easily, as we rest and enjoy it.

  The dream I awoke from was that I was somehow in a series of hotels, and I could not find a way out. They were not uncomfortable except for my pervasive sense of uneasiness about what was going on. I felt somewhat hesitant to ask others, to show that I had no idea how or why I was there, or where I was. Others also seemed reserved, timid and uncertain in their actions, not speaking much or confiding to each other. There was nothing green, nothing alive, nothing natural. 
  I seemed to find myself in several of these settings, and felt they were different, and in different places. There were few men, mostly women, and nobody was aggressive, all very muted and tentative in movements and conversation with each other.
  In the last of these venues, maybe "Hotel California", by the feeling, there was a coloration of darkness and reddish light. 
I found my way outside into the night, into a vast and empty parking lot, with rain, but warm rain, and another guy looking around in the warm rain. 
It was on a vast and empty plateau, with the lights of some city (LA?) in the distance. I noticed that I was wet, but not cold, and wondered about it.
There seemed to be no answer for me out there in the darkness. When I went inside a group of five or six women was standing together, trying to communicate with each other. One of the ladies turned to the others and spoke as I drew near to them. She gestured towards me and said, "he saved my life".
I was included in that group, my first feeling of connection in that world of lonely mingling. 
What I felt was the sudden responsibility to find the way, the way to meaning, to answers, to connection with the outside, connection to life, connection to reality.
 I was elected to serve, to find the way. 
I was entrusted with that responsibility. I could not fail them.

  As I drove down to Yoakum yesterday morning, to put insulation in the attic, I repeatedly felt emotion well up in me, nearly to tears, as I re-experienced the woman in my dream telling the other souls, "he saved my life".
  The time for us to learn in spirit, to develop our awareness of our connectedness, and our ability to serve love, compassion, wisdom and cooperation, is now. We may do so now. We may feel our connectedness now, feel others gently touch our souls now. Ask for wisdom and guidance now. The artificial world of the hard-wired hive mind of human bodies has no love, no compassion, and is designed to serve selfish corporate power interests, while the physical world of industrial capitalism relentlessly declines.
  The alternative world which we can nurture is the world of life, the world of complex ecosystems, of complexity which harmonizes at every level. We have the ability in our own nature to be the stewards of nature, not the overlords of nature. 
  A one time discovery of energy in coal and oil, of machines to build and transport and travel, of electricity and instantaneous communication across the world, has brought us each to a decision point. 
  We can join in loving spirit, or be starved and coerced into submission to the Borg, to becoming meat-robots in an interactive computer simulation with goggles, a comfortable cocoon and little wires and chips in our brains. I have felt that emptiness in a dream. 
  The way that I must serve those souls who I met in the dream is to serve now, earlier in time, to find a path for all of us, which does not lead to the places of that dream. I pray that we can do this together.

Thanks Doc Robinson:  (I'm still looking for deaths clearly caused BY Omicron. There should be a few by now...)
Clinical outcomes among patients infected with Omicron (B.1.1.529) SARS-CoV-2 variant in southern California  
The table S10 from the report shows there were 52,133 patients with Omicron (SGTF) and 16,929 with Delta (No SGTF).
Half of the Delta patients were unvaxxed (49.6%).
Only a quarter of the Omicron patients were unvaxxed (26%).
74% of the Omicron patients were vaxxed.
Only 0.5% of the Omicron patients were unvaxxed with a documented previous infection.

"Vaccine" mandates make no sense in Omicron-world, but that can't yet be taken into consideration, nor can their toxicity or lack of efficacy, it seems.
Supreme Court Strikes Down OSHA Mandate, Says Vaccine Mandates for Healthcare Workers Can Proceed
​  ​T​​he U.S. Supreme Court today rejected the Biden administration’s COVID vaccine mandate for large businesses, but ruled separately that a mandate for healthcare workers can move forward.

​Pepe Escobar has Kazakhstan-failed-hybrid-war-color-revolution wrap-up. 
The US, UK, Israel and Turkey had a command and control center. Their jihadi-mercenaries captured the airport, but could not hold it.
  In this “center,” there were 22 Americans, 16 Turks and 6 Israelis coordinating sabotage gangs – trained in West Asia by the Turks – and then rat-lined to Almaty.
​  ​The op started to unravel for good when Kazakh forces – with the help of Russian/CSTO intel – retook control of the vandalized Almaty airport, which was supposed to be turned into a hub for receiving foreign military supplies...
​  ​It didn’t take long for Tokayev to understand the merits of immediately calling the CSTO to the rescue: Kazakhstan signed the treaty way back in 1994. After all, Tokayev was fighting a foreign-led coup against his government.
​  ​Putin, among others, has stressed how an official Kazakh investigation is the only one entitled to get to the heart of the matter.
​  ​It’s still unclear exactly who – and to what extent – sponsored the rioting mobs. Motives abound: to sabotage a pro-Russia/China government, to provoke Russia, to sabotage BRI, to plunder mineral resources, to turbo-charge a House of Saud-style ‘Islamization’.
​  ​Rushed to only a few days before the start of the Russia-US ‘security guarantees’ in Geneva, this color revolution represented a sort of counter-ultimatum – in desperation – by the NATO establishment.
​  ​Central Asia, West Asia, and the overwhelming majority of the Global South have witnessed the lightning fast Eurasian response by the CSTO troops – who, having now done their job, are set to leave Kazakhstan in a couple of days – and how this color revolution has failed, miserably.
​  ​It might as well be the last. Beware the rage of a humiliated Empire.

A Carbohydrate-Binding Protein from the Edible Lablab Beans Effectively Blocks the Infections of Influenza Viruses and SARS-CoV-2

​Two friends sent this, and it reminded me of the Peter Tosh song, "Bush Doctor"
Cannabinoids Block Cellular Entry of SARS-CoV-2 and the Emerging Variants
​...​Cannabinoid acids from hemp (Cannabis sativa) were found to be allosteric as well as orthosteric ligands with micromolar affinity for the spike protein. In follow-up virus neutralization assays, cannabigerolic acid and cannabidiolic acid prevented infection of human epithelial cells by a pseudovirus expressing the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein and prevented entry of live SARS-CoV-2 into cells. Importantly, cannabigerolic acid and cannabidiolic acid were equally effective against the SARS-CoV-2 alpha variant B.1.1.7 and the beta variant B.1.351. Orally bioavailable and with a long history of safe human use, these cannabinoids, isolated or in hemp extracts, have the potential to prevent as well as treat infection by SARS-CoV-2.

​W​hatever Russia "might" do is ​probably ​already done, but still reversible through diplomacy. 
I don't know what that may be, but NATO probably has ​some​ idea by now.​ ​

  1. Meat robots. Evolved from rocks banging together in space. I feel bad for those with no faith, religion, or spirituality. A materialist world view is so meaningless and hopeless. Humanist can only offer us the techno/human great reset and worsening scarcity. They become our corrupted gods. Heaven help us. We are right and true. Dream Big and Do. Dream On!:)

    1. It's such a tragic loss to be a meat-robot. You can't tell anybody anything, though...
      I pray earnestly for guidance, insight and the ability to love and comprehend better.
      I feel like I go back and forth between being a fine harpsichord and a battle-bot made out of a circular saw with a carbide-tipped blade.
