    The presentation in this you tubby represents my point of view exactly, to my huge surprise!
    Didn't know that Manly Hall and Confusius are that close to my point of view
    on "how to be online or not to be online"? It's a message with heart, thank goodness.
    Enjoy!

    Moments of my truth in a most dynamic and intense planetary constellation

    Post  B.B.Baghor on Tue Apr 29, 2014 1:43 pm

    Here's my view on the world of bits and bites and actually it's a synchronistic moment.
    This morning I completed my letter and decided to wait for the right moment to post it.
    The lecture by Manly Hall on "Computers and Confucius" is an excellent opportunity to post it today.
    I feel they're both coming from the same source and intention.

    I choose to include my letter in the attachment, because I feel there's quite a share of my views present here already.
    So, for those who really have an interest in it, have a go!

    "Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist at CERN, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989. The web was originally conceived
    and developed to meet the demand for automatic information-sharing between scientists in universities and institutes around
    the world. The first website at CERN - and in the world - was dedicated to the World Wide Web project itself and was hosted
    on Berners-Lee's NeXT computer. The website described the basic features of the web; how to access other people's documents
    and how to set up your own server. The NeXT machine - the original web server - is still at CERN.

    As part of the project to restore the first website, in 2013 CERN reinstated the world's first website to its original address.
    On 30 April 1993 CERN put the World Wide Web software in the public domain. CERN made the next release available with an open
    licence, as a more sure way to maximise its dissemination. Through these actions, making the software required to run a web server
    freely available, along with a basic browser and a library of code, the web was allowed to flourish".

    On the open internet and the free web

    David Foster
    Posted by Cian O'Luanaigh on 12 Mar 2014. Last updated 15 Apr 2014, 13.31.

    David Foster, deputy head of CERN's IT department and early web contributor, on our responsibility as individuals to preserve an
    open internet and a free web for the benefit of humankind.

     
    "The internet created the platform and opportunity for people to communicate, to collaborate and to share at unprecedented scale and speed.
    The creation of the World Wide Web opened up these possibilities to the world, enabling individuals to participate and play their own creative

    role in the sharing of all human achievements. This has enabled interactions between all sorts of people – from all sorts of domains, including business, government and scientific communities – for all manner of activities like never before in human history. The web has evolved from simple information sharing to transacting business through socializing and more recently collaborative problem solving in citizen cyber science.


    In these ways it harnesses the capabilities of humanity to do what we do best; share, learn, collaborate and innovate. However, with this capability comes considerable responsibility. Basic human rights – including the right to freedom of expression and the protection of privacy – all need to be balanced and preserved in order that this incredible resource can be a safe and exciting place for creativity for people of all ages and interests. The accessibility and openness of the internet are crucial to enabling new ideas to flourish and compete with the long-standing traditions and to ensure that the evolution of the web continues to proceed at a pace limited only by our ideas.

    This responsibility rests with all of us – whether politicians, lawmakers, scientists or citizens – to ensure that the incredible progress we have made in the last 25 years, starting with the work of a few, and now capturing the innovations of many, can continue in an open, trusted, safe, free and fair way."

    I truly wonder and marvel at the contradiction between the concept of internet as an awareness expanding, educational instrument,
    that is intended to be or will be beneficial to mankind and its presence in real life, in public transport and pubs, mainly in densely populated
    areas in the Western world, where the awareness of people is compressed to the size of a screen. We've still a way to go, before internet becomes part of and is managed by humanity's evolving awareness, as I perceive it.

    Part of my wondering is also, having gone through statements of visionaries, like Krishnamurti and recent whistleblowers, saying that
    the "invention" of internet is part of an agenda that is aiming to turn humanity into a robotic state, ruled by that virtual world, with the
    help of chipped bodies and ID chips added to vaccins, according to Simon Parkes now being used in the vaccination program in Australia.
    I'm not saying that this agenda will be played out in its evil way, if it's in existence.

    That agenda could be a projection of a human consciousness, feeling its conscience burning in shame, pointing at "a guilty party... out
    there in hiding" for the convenience of stifling that voice. In short, our reality, the way we see things around us, is ruled by our conscious
    presence and awareness of the moment we're in.

    (quote)Popular culture as presented by mass media:


    - turns fantasy into myth while driving a false understanding of reality into the subconscious;


    - destroys traditional mythological structures and replaces them with ego fulfillment myths;


    - con-vinces people possession of material objects defines their individual value in the social culture;


    How do we deal with the trap that desires lay for us?


    Eliminate as many manufactured desires as possible


    Refuse to desire what you do not need!


    Simple pleasures rarely disappoint"(end of quote).


    Yesterday, I listened to an advertisement for a dream-car, on the radio, ending with "Sometimes, what you want is what you need"
    That's an example of what I mean to convey here in this post. It's subtle and it's hypnotic when such suggestions are repeated each hour.
    And so can messages work on our unconsciousness that are coming from whistleblowers, speaking their truth, but
    conveniently used to silence the voice of our conscience, when we're not turning within and be prepared to live our truth.




    (quote)- "Undermining the role of parents has been a strategy, marketers have exploited to sell their brands,
    through the development  of "kids only" products and marketing themes. Kiddie marketing often strives
    for the "nag factor" an actual measurement by the advertising industry of the extent to which an add
    drives a child to pester the folks about a purchase" - Jamie Court.




    The "nag factor" is marketing strategy that takes manipulation of children to the extreme.


    From 1992 to 1997 the amount of money spent on marketing to children doubled, from $ 6.2 billion to
    $ 12.7 billion. Today it is estimated that $ 15 billion is being spent.


    "It is no coincidence that governments want to educate children. Government education, in turn, is supposed to be evidence
    of the state's goodness and its concern for our well-being. The real explanation is less flattering.
    If the government's propaganda can take root as children grow up, those kids will be no threat to the state apparatus.
    They fasten the chains to their own ankles".
    Lew Rockwell.(end of quote)
