This is a Random Event Generator (REG) assembled by Soul Rider friend, Leo Madrid, founder of the P.E.A.C.E. Museum. When encouraged by, and influenced by the conscious coherence of human thought, this array tends to show colors which are the same or similar. We’re considering its use in training remote viewers with another method to encourage great session results. http://ow.ly/dNsV30o7TBh http://ow.ly/i/LGnRT

The new movie, Third Eye Spies, is prett

The new movie, Third Eye Spies, is pretty good. You could enjoy it if you’re new to remote viewing, or if you’re experienced with it. Russell Targ and Lance Mungia have produced an interesting, entertaining and meandering biopic about Russell’s work in remote viewing. I know Russell well. He encouraged my Soul Rider companies to work with Marty Rosenblatt’s nonprofit and for-profit Applied Precognition Project companies. https://thirdeyespies.com/

In 1996 I architected, built, expanded and ran for 12 years our 25-user, mixed operating systems company LAN, from soup to nuts, including significant quantities of sensitive data, internet firewalls and fat-pipe data lines. In the new context of the many, massive data thefts from companies most of us use, it’s my suggestion that every customer now needs identify theft insurance and protection. No company except an identity-monitoring company can be expected to guard your sensitive data from theft. http://ow.ly/kzpI30jkUnm

Donella Meadows on Earth Economics

Photo: Ceiba Tree, Vieques, Puerto Rico, by Marta Ceroni

“THE LAWS OF THE EARTH AND THE LAWS OF ECONOMICS

Economics says: compete. Only by pitting yourself against a worthy opponent will you perform efficiently. The reward for successful competition will be growth. You will eat up your opponents, one by one, and as you do, you will gain the resources to do it some more.

The Earth says: compete, yes, but keep your competition in bounds. Don’t annihilate. Take only what you need. Leave your competitor enough to live. Wherever possible, don’t compete, cooperate. Pollinate each other, create shelter for each other, build firm structures that lift smaller species up to the light. Pass around the nutrients, share the territory. Some kinds of excellence rise out of competition; other kinds rise out of cooperation. You’re not in a war, you’re in a community.

Economics says: worry, struggle, be dissatisfied. The permanent condition of humankind is scarcity. The only way out of scarcity is to accumulate and hoard, though that means, regrettably, that others will have less. Too bad, but there is not enough to go around.

The Earth says: rejoice! You have been born into a world of self-maintaining abundance and incredible beauty. Feel it, taste it, be amazed by it. If you stop your struggle and lift your eyes long enough to see Earth’s wonders, to play and dance with the glories around you, you will discover what you really need. It isn’t that much. There is enough. As long as you control your numbers, there will be enough for everyone and for as long as you can imagine.

HAPPY AND ACTIVE EARTH DAY TO ALL!”

Donald Trump’s Barking Madness

Trump at 2-16-17 White House Press Conference

This man, Donald Trump, is certified, barking mad. The one good thing he did was to suspend the Trans-Pacific Partnership. Every thing else has been, and will continue to be a disaster.

Here’s the complete video of today’s presidential press conference from CBS News. It’s crystal clear he should be impeached before he does further significant damage. U.S. Congress are clearly a willing accessory to the destruction caused by this malignant narcissist. Yet they have abandoned their duty to enhance, preserve and protect both the nation’s citizens and our principles of compassionate democracy. This is a political coup in progress.

You’ve heard about the letter by psychologists to the New York Times declaring that Trump’s unfit to serve? Here is it is. And if you really need another, here’s one from Johns Hopkins.

Trump’s Dubious Clothes as Emperor

“Even on his own Trumpian terms, it’s fascinating to watch him destroy his standing as an expert in litigation. Who seriously thinks you can win a case by intimidating a United States judge?

These are the tactics of organized crime and they haven’t exactly been successful. If Trump wants to know how his attacks will be treated, he need only pick up one of the beautiful phones in the White House to call his sister. Judge Maryanne Trump Barry was appointed to the bench by Ronald Reagan, and has a reputation for delivering blunt justice to mob bosses.”

Whatever happens with Trump’s presidential administration and his presidency, it’s unequivocally important to stand up his administration’s xenophobic, sociopathic policies. To get the best information about the U.S., you often have to look outside its borders. Major news media in the U.S.A. have for decades kowtowed to the advertisers and government who toss them the most cash.

To see how Trump’s administration is trying to subvert the U.S. Constitution, you can have a look at Richard Wolffe’s pointed analysis in the Guardian, “When a president fights the law, there’s only ever one winner.”

Bannon’s Headfake to Stage a Coup

I appreciate what Jake Fuentes wrote about the Trump administration’s actions, “The Immigration Ban is a Headfake, and We’re Falling For It.”

Fuentes starts out:

“When I read about the incredibly active first week of the Trump administration, I struggle with two competing narratives about what’s really going on. The first story is simple: the administration is just doing what it said it would do, literally keeping its campaign promises. Lots of people won’t agree, but it’s playing to its base. They’re also not really good at this whole government thing yet, so implementation is shaky. The second is more sinister: the administration is deliberately testing the limits of governmental checks and balances to set up a self-serving, dangerous consolidation of power. ”

The Trainwreck of Trump’s Disaster Capitalism

It was several years ago when I read Naomi Klein’s excellent book, “The Shock Doctrine:  The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.” Now, with Narcissist-in-Chief Donald Trump and his number two man, Mike Pence, in office, we can expect the Trump administration to instantly begin staging actions from the disaster capitalist’s playbook. It’s gonna get way ugly before it ever gets better.

For those of us looking for foot- and hand-holds while scaling the parapets of the neofascist policies Trump is now doing his best to quickly build, I recommend reading Klein’s fresh essay about disaster capitalism in the Intercept_, titled, “Get Ready for the First Shocks of Disaster Capitalism.”

Gird your loins, people. It’s time to gear-up, and we must move quickly.
