Of Machines, of Men and of Co-evolution

The “technological singularity” (as computers and machines actually become smarter than men are) progresses. Google’s CEO, one of the originators of the whole idea, said that he expected it around 2040. At such, I almost scoff, believing as I do that this actually happened with Windows 8.0 (by a couple of clues), and certainly has been growing strongly in its reach during the reign of Windows 10, (and the control of computers, virtual assistants and robots over our lives). I am in as much a condition to comment on all this as anyone, having spent 15 to 20 hours a day for 15 years as an “internet addict,” working on various websites I have owned, and with ten years of college in the hard sciences.

Virtual Reality and “Fixing” Time

The Daily Walk with Love — A wrongness about time finds it’s expression in our modern society in its obsessions over time and schedules.

Speaking from my Heart about Tolerance and Acceptance in Religious Differences

The idea of this article dates back maybe ten years to a sermon given at the local Unitarian-Universalist church here ins Wooster, Ohio, by the pastor, Rev. Strawn. Did you know that more people have died in the last 2,000 years because of religious differences in active religious warfare than from any other single cause? And this is despite Jesus’ wish at the Last Supper “that they all may be one.” In other words, (you know in your heart, now) we must lay aside our differences and and tolerate and accept each other, and cease trying to force everyone to believe just as one person or one church or even one denomination does, in all the doctrines and dogmas which have been put forth. We must (as Pope Francis put it a few years ago) come to know that God is patiently waiting for us to accept his love, with open arms, “NOT as people say we must be, but just as we are.” I have my own ideas about some of the more important beliefs, and teach those ideas here, put forward not as any sort of doctrine at all, but only as a sort of (hopefully informed) exploration, which however I have arrived at through 37 years of on and off study of comparitive religion.

Rush 2112 full album

If you like hard rock, you already know about Rush, but may not have followed just how great the 2112 album is. It’s not heavy metal , it’s Rush, and always worth a listen. Rush is just three people, Geddy Lee (bass, lead vocals, keyboards), Alex Lifeson (guitars, backing vocals) and Neil Peart (drums, percussion, lyrics). Now, alas, Rush is no more, having recently broken up. Hey Rush, your fans would sure like a reunion concert…. Read More …

The Problem With Goal Setting

Vishen Lakhiani of Mindvalley Academy asks us, do we really want to spend our lives pursuing the factors (“means goals”) which usually lead to an “end game” of successful enjoyment, or do we want to cut to the chase, so to speak, and simply enjoy one (or more) of three, process oriented “ultimate” or “end” sort of goals which all humans normally hope for: experiences, personal growth and/or contribution to society and your friends as well.) So choose one or more of three, process oriented “ultimate” sorts of goals we all desire and start enjoying life again! (with a new summary from “Forget About Setting Goals. Focus on This Instead.”) Read More …

Who Owns and Runs Microsoft and Why You Should Care

To quote my previous article, “the average American slips deeper all the time into despair for a decent future, even for families with two full-time jobs (which is rare). We are being replaced, in a gradual, creeping evil, by automation, AI, robots and outsourcing. …The elite no longer intend to keep paying for the Entitlements which somewhat sustained us in the past. To take one example, Obama’s 50 percent cut in food stamps, five percent a year for ten years (while the average person on food stamps HAS a job, and most of them are single working mothers).” Did you know that the Illuminati, 0.1 percent of the world’s population, control 95 percent of the wealth, as “The 13 Ruling Families?” You can find out more at the “Humans Are Free” website. May God and the good people all over America, right wing or left wing, even neo-nazi or communist, unite as one to fight our terible oppression. Did you know that the entire lower 40 percent of us haradually ve 0.3 percent of the wealth? Fight against hypnosis and mind control over TV and the internet (the Matrix), take all the breaks you need to avoid hypnosis. May the CIA and all patriotic Americans as well as Anonymous, the Christian Militia and the Patriot and police organizations lead us to real freedom — freedom or death, which is what the Illuminati have planned for the average American and the poor, as we are gtaken off to out-of-the-way FEMA camps. None of this suffering and depopulation needs to be at all, it is purely a product of evil legislation dictated by the billionaire investment bankers (the Illuminati). In this article, we specifically examine Microsoft, which controls almost 90 percent of computer operating systems. I honestly don’t think Microsoft is as money-oriented as it used to be, but there IS evidence that it, too is tied to the Illuminati. You know, Linux is free. Let freedom ring! Read More …

Life as Sacred and IR vs. UV Light

I have always thought that not enough attention was paid to the Holiness of Life, and believe we are doing a poor job of “the stewardship of the land,” which is what God asked of us. After a 40 years long reading and writing about comparative religion, this article well sums up my conclusions to this point. Some of this thinking is quite new to me, so I incorporated the new ideas into a new, hopefully better summary article, which, I nonetheless believe, is also firmly grounded in science. If nothing else, even if you don’t usually concern yourself with religion, I believe that you will find this article interesting, and maybe empowering. Read More …

Life is a Miracle, a gift from God

Good morning, God be with you. I’ve been meaning to publish this from my sidebar because I feel it’s important that we understand these religious and scientific facts. Indeed, life on earth is fully and even mathematically a miracle, a gift from God. Maybe this will help you see that this is fully true, at least it had that effect on me. It also made me feel a little more humble and grateful. – any way you look at it, life is a miracle, a gift from God. Here’s why. Read More …

Global Warming: Can the Human Species Survive Extreme Heat

Rolling Stone (on Pocket-Firefox) has a new article, “Can We Survive Extreme Heat?” This is much more than a question of casual interest. The area around Death Valley has a record heat wave underway, with temperatures around 130 Fahrenheit. Rolling Stone discusses a heat wave around Phoenix with temperatures around 115 Fahrenheit, saying we “have never lived on a planet this hot, and we’re totally unprepared for what’s to come.” As I have stated in a few articles on global warming on The Daily Walk, Conservatives refuse to believe the abundant evidence for global warming, while Democrats are ideologically wedded to a dangerous (and completely false) idea that the warming is due to an increase in CO2, probably because this is what is being pushed on them by corporate America. Now it’s getting to the point where we either face up to the truth about global warming or risk extinction as a species. Read More …

The Doobie Brothers — Stampede

The Doobie Brothers Stampede is courtesy of YouTube
and Warner Brothers – I snapped this one up just as soon as it
came out in 1975 and have always been glad. Stampede is not
among the Doobies’ best known albums and is not packed with the hits everyone knows, but it really rocks. The music really moves,
the rhythms are great, and there’s not a bad song in the bunch. It is one of their very best sounding as well as their roots-iest album, and I know you’ll love it! Read More …

Amazon’s Jeff Bezos says this new AI technology is worth 35 Amazons (about $17 trillion)

Jeff Bezos, owner of Amazon.com, the richest man alive, with a net worth approaching $200 billion has said he is “all in” for a new AI technology which may well create the world’s first trillionaire and is vital to Amazon’s continued success. One company, now a sixth the size of Amazon owns most of the patents dominating “a radical breakthrough that Wired says is ‘the rocket fuel of AI.'” One source I read said that the AI breakthrough would lead to, in Bezos’ own words, Amazon soon going bankrupt. I doubt that sincerely, because more recent issues of such investment gurus as “The Motley Fool,” and Bezos’ more recent comments infer that Amazon will buy into this technology big-time. However this new AI technology is viewed, though, it’s a huge game changer. Wall Street is drooling all over this one and multi-billionaire “investor Warren Buffett says that it will have a ‘hugely beneficial social effect.'” Read More …

Democracy and Tyranny: Lessons from Ancient Rome

From what I have read, Rome had seven centuries of almost unparalleled growth in size, power, as well as an increasingly better life for most of its citizens until it became an empire about 27 B.C. After that, it was basically only three centuries until Rome and the Roman empire were finished and done, at least in the west. This is a huge lesson for America, Empower democracy outside of corporate control (or by the military-industrial complex), and America will flourish. If not, you face an end to America’s strength in the world, as well as an end to the real respect of other nations towards us. This, more than anything else, is the vitally important lesson from ancient Greece and Rome. Read More …

Midnight Oil – “Forgotten Years” (Mix)

The Daily Walk with Love — Midnight Oil is “indie-rock,” not quite alternative and (somewhat) punk, too, but they are great rockers.
