End of year review

Any stunningly dramatic events, or non events, that have shaken your belief in your understanding of the world?

Any global events that are confusing?

Any massive event that you just don't understand?

Has your government done something completely irrational, that truly confuses you?

Has anything happened to challenge any of your core beliefs?

Did you give your core beliefs any critically thought?



For the Elite Critical Thinkers, which events tested the core beliefs of our civilisation?

World war two, gulf war two, JFK, the cold war, 911, U.S. support for both Israel and Saudi Arabia. When will the official narrative be seriously questioned?

Feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section below.

I suggest long pieces are written elsewhere first and then cut and pasted into the comments section. Just in case of gremlins. I look forward to reading them.

Feel free to post links to your own blog or vlog.

Thanks for reading mine

What is bitcoin? What is bitcoins value?

First off all, this is high order analysis and not a prediction of the future.

Bitcoins come into existence when a particularly cunning mathematical puzzle is solved. The puzzle gets harder or easier depending upon how much computer power is allocated to the task of solving it. The puzzles designer has decided that it ought to be solved every ten minutes. The reward for solving the puzzle is bitcoin. Once 21 million bitcoins have been allocated, that is the end of bitcoin production. However, the puzzles continue and the winner will get a small skim of any bitcoin transactions that occurred since the last puzzle was solved, about ten minutes ago.

As you may imagine, the first puzzle solvers were cryptographers who were interested in solving the puzzle as well as understanding the puzzle. Today, the puzzle solvers choose to call themselves 'miners'. They would like you to believe that bitcoin is similar to gold. That they are bitcoin miners, who are not unlike actual gold miners. They are people who never switch off their computer which is optimised to solve the bitcoin puzzle, they are unlikely to use it for anything else. At least, for now.

I have known about bitcoin when they were less than fifty dollars each. I very nearly bought three but I didn't. Which is annoying. At the time I thought that these had the potential to be worth one million dollars, or more likely 100,000 dollars or perhaps easily ten thousand dollars.  My plan was to acquire three and swap them for gold when they were at par. What a foolish plan. I smile at my own lack of critical thought.

What I ought to have thought was if one bitcoin could be worth one million dollars, then keep one until it is worth one million dollars, sell it and then retire. Surely, a fifty dollar risk to retire early was worth taking? I never considered it.

If I thought $100,000 was the future value, then I ought to have bought ten. A 500 dollar risk against a win of early retirement?

How about $10,000? I ought to have at least considered buying 1000. A 5,000 dollar risk which could have been realised this week?

Two would have got me a new car and twenty a house. All for 1100 dollars of risk.

Anyway, I didn't buy any. I tried mining but after a couple of hours and some research, I realised I was wasting my time. I needed to buy a 'mining rig' but the lead time was months by which time the 'mining rig' would not be sufficiently powerful to brings the odds of solving the puzzle my way.

A 'mining rig' is a specialised computer designed to solve the puzzle.

I hope that gives you an impression of what bitcoin is. Ownership of these bitcoin can be transferred, between computers incredibly easily, cheaply, quickly, accurately and securely over the internet. The bitcoins are stored in an electronic wallet. The electronic wallet and therefore the bitcoins can be stored on a USB stick, on your phone or even printed out onto paper. You can buy little electronic gizmos too very securely store your bitcoins.

Now, what are these things worth? Each bitcoin is made up of 100,000,000 satoshi. If you owned one bitcoin, you could just as easily say that you own one hundred million satoshi. If each satoshi was 'considered' to be worth one cent, then the bitcoin itself would be worth one million dollars.

This is crucial, how much we believe a satoshi to be worth, if multiplied by one hundred million gives you the value of bitcoin.

The word satoshi is based on the man or group of men who wrote the original cryptography code. He, she or they have 2 million bitcoins which have never ever moved anywhere. Now we have a mystery. I could retire on 100 bitcoin and he has 2 million of them and has done nothing with them. Nothing. This allows the human mind to whirl away believing whatever it chooses too. Such a mind may come to believe that bitcoin is better than dollars or pounds or euros or gold or silver or a pension fund. What wouldn't help is some bloke saying it was just a cryptography puzzle. Or that he can create bitcoin II in about ten minutes, assuming he has to make his own cup of coffee.

Bitcoin can be viewed as a worthless in game currency. However, its value comes from the fact that there is no associated game, apparently.

Higher order analysis reveals to us more detail. The creator never wanted to be asked any questions about what bitcoin is or isn't. He created something beautiful, magical and elegant. He or she did not create it to become rich or famous as they are showing remarkable restraint if that we the case. Bitcoin is a gift given freely to the world for us to use as we see fit. Many have chosen to view it as a currency devoid of any central banker or govt control and that is what gives it value. Others refer to the blockchain or ledger. This shows us who owns which bitcoins, not their name but the encoded name of their bitcoin wallet. This could be used as a way to prove ownership of other assets such as shares or houses. Changing how banking operates. Others realise that this could be used for voting, secure voting over the internet. Changing how we are governed.

The value of bitcoin, or rather the puzzle itself is unimaginable and unrealisable unless we develop the moral courage (https://davidwatkinson1.blogspot.co.uk/2017/12/moral-courage.html) to realise its potential.

Now, forgetting all that, which is really important. How much is a bitcoin worth, how much should you invest and how much could you win or lose?

You have already lost all that you have been given and all that you were and all that you could be. You have no desire to create, you simply wish the means to gain power over the rest of us. To do as you please at our expense. Imagine I have 100 bitcoins, would I now retire and expect you to service all my needs and requirements in exchange for 2-3 bitcoins per year?

That is not the dream of the creator. That is the dream of a member of society. Is that all you perceive yourself to be?

What is bitcoin is a question to ponder for yourself. Is it currency? Do you know what currency is?

Could we use it to redefine banking and government? Could we use it a a stepping stone to creating the truth and beauty of an actual civilisation?

We need to stop concerning ourselves with the price of bitcoin and ponder its value.

However, should society need to see a price of one million dollars per bitcoin before it can begin to realise the value of bitcoin, then so be it.

Attempt to understand the value of bitcoin, not in how many dollars a bitcoin is worth but what is the worth of a dollar and why. Once you understand how a dollar has value you can begin to question if it deserves to have any worth and ultimately the truth. Does the dollar free mankind or enslave it. Once that question is answered we can choose to use bitcoin to free mankind and usher in an actual civilisation.

In asking the question, how much is a bitcoin worth? You prove yourself lost in a system that does not consider you important. Why would you 'choose' to be worthless? You are programmed to respond that society is bigger than all of us and it is good to be a part of it. Which is a lie but very close to the truth so we can readily accept it as truth.

The question is, how best can we use the gift of bitcoin to enhance our collective experience of this thing we call the 'real world'. Is bitcoin real? We have nothing to measure it against as the 'real world' most certainly is not 'real'.

The question is, why do we continue to live in a society as valueless consumers when we have the technological means (bitcoin et al) to live in a civilisation of our own creation? Where we create the value?

Is the Financial System - sound?

The financial system is fantastic, it allows trade to flourish across the world. A few countries have not signed up for these benefits, Iran, Cuba, Syria and North Korea.

We can all do a first order analysis of the currency we carry in our pockets, the electronic currency registered in our bank accounts, the wealth stored in our pension pots. Basically, it is what we use for money and highly paid people look after all this, on our behalf.

A second order analysis blows this out of the water. The financial system is both very complicated and incredibly simple. Which is why higher order analysis is truly valuable.

High order analysis can only be done once you have become a mindful being and can still and calm your own mind. Your mind needs to be 'unsticky', in that it is free to consider new ideas without bias.

Now try this idea, forget what you think the financial system is, what paper currency in your pocket is, what electronic currency in your bank account is and what wealth you believe is stored in your home and pension plan is. The Financial system is what it does.


  • it creates wealth inequality
  • it creates the belief that it is real
  • it centralises power
  • it is a controlling mechanism
  • it relentlessly destroys those who oppose it
Perhaps now you wish me to explain each of the above bullet points? There is no point, you are either a mindful being who recognises the merit of each point or you aren't. Remembering now, at the beginning of the article, I mentioned only mindful beings are capable of higher order analysis?

Regardless, is the financial system truly fantastic? Well, creating wealth inequality means that it takes from the many and gives to the few. That is not fantastic for the many.

It makes you believe that it is real when it isn't. That is never good. How can you relate properly to 'reality' when it isn't real?

Centralising power simply means taking power from individuals. How is that good? You may say that this is for the greater good. Fine. Unfortunately, I am a mindful being and I don't give away my power to people who aren't. Why would someone capable of higher order analysis give power to those with sticky minds who aren't even aware of their deficiencies?

Is it really a controlling mechanism? How can it not be? Imagine you buy some land in the middle of Australia, just because it was inexpensive and you wanted to own something real. You try and build a a small hut but the ground is full of a heavy, sticky clay. That my friend is silver. Without massive loans from the banks, you are never going to realise the full wealth potential that your land in the middle of nowhere possesses. A property developer, like President Trump, gets nowhere fast without the support of banks. What banks give, they can take away and give to someone of their own choosing. Again. some thought and independent research is all you need to investigate these ideas, assuming you are a mindful being or an equivalent thereof.

It does destroy those who oppose it. Or even those who try to ignore it. Like N. Korea, Iran, Syria and Cuba.

N Korea has masses of mineral wealth, rather like the piece of land mentioned in the Australia example. Does the man in charge allow large multinational banks and conglomerates in to realise this wealth? No. Which is why he is targeted by those who you have freely given your wealth and power to. 

Anyway, we have sufficient resources to feed, clothe and house everyone on the planet. We have chosen to give our wealth, power and minds to a financial system that does not want to feed, clothe and house everyone on the planet.

Now, the important bit. What does this mean for you, personally? It means you are a being incapable of higher order analysis who is a modern day slave and integral part of a financial system that does not care if you live or die. it just does.

The currency in your wallet are just pieces of paper. They have value today, less tomorrow and eventually are worthless.

The electronic currency in your bank account is an illusion of wealth. This is easily proved. Apparently, we all know they lend out ten times more than they have. The 1000 units in your account are not there, perhaps only 100 are. Actually, it doesn't matter. It is just an illusion.

How about the value of your home? Well, I have a £500 car. It is as valuable to me as a £100,000 car, providing that car is reliable. Could I sell it for £500? Probably not. Perhaps £200 is its numerical value. What about your house, £200,000? Potentially, yes. What about your £400,000 pension?

So yes, currency is useful. Otherwise how do we exchange our time and experience for other peoples time and experience? How do we turn heavy, sticky clay into silver jewellery and coins without currency?

We have currency but we have allowed others to determine the rules of the game and these others have tilted the table to their own favour. I cannot fault them. If we choose not to critically think for ourselves then others will do it for us and then we become slaves to a system of their design.

What can we do? This is a question that slaves ask. The elite have no need to answer it as other slaves will instantly tell you that you can do nothing. The system is too powerful.

You know what to do, become a Mindful Being. Then become aware of others and sensitive to the demands of society. I have walked that path. Since writing my trilogy, I have walked that path with far greater confidence. I am no longer a slave. However, nothing in my life has changed. I still have the same job and car. The only thing that has changed is me. The title of this piece was, is the financial system - sound? No, it isn't. You and I need do nothing. It is not sound, it is becoming increasingly brittle. The collapse of the financial system will take down banks and government, releasing power straight back to the individual. Many slaves will not be able to adapt quickly enough to this sudden transition. Mindful Beings will adapt but the transition will still be unnecessarily harsh.

Truthfully, If more of us were mindful beings the transition could be managed humanely. I said the transition would be unnecessarily harsh. I don't believe that. The human race needs a lesson it won't readily forget. Therefore, the transition does need to be harsh. Which displeases me.

You could do yourself a major favour and attempt to understand my books and adapt them to your own needs. Then when others ask, advise them as best you can.

You might wonder if there is anything you can do to ease the pain of transition for yourself and your loved ones. I am most certain that there are.

You take care and hope that the human race does not need too severe a lesson.

Over Christmas, the 'Complete Trilogy' of my books will be available on Amazon for just one major currency unit. Each currency unit that I receive will be exchanged for something real. It will not be 'stored' in a bank account or 'saved' in a pension fund. 100 units or less will be exchanged for a bottle of fine single malt whisky. 1000 units will make their way toward a Swiss watch. 10,000 units a luxury Swiss watch. Any more gets a car. Should I get hundreds of thousands, all of the above and a house. The one I am currently renting. Anymore than that would need to be invested with great care for the benefit of mankinds soul.

Thanks for reading and if you have given any of this some critical thought, take some deep breaths and relax. Perhaps go for a mindful walk. We are creating Hell on Earth but you can still walk in Eden.

UK Govt scrap stamp duty for first time buyers

Let me give an example of critical thought in action.

As the title suggests, the UK government is helping first time buyers by scrapping stamp duty on houses up to £300,000

So, no need for critical thought. or is there?

Stamp duty is just a fee you have to give the govt for no real reason when you buy a home in the UK. Now first time buyers have no need to pay it but is this helpful?

A first order analysis says yes but let us go deeper. Imagine a young couple able to afford a £600 a month mortgage on a £100,000 home. Imagine interest rates for first time buyers were govt subsidised and the young couple only had to pay £300 a month. A first order analysis tells us that the govt is helping the young couple. However, the sellers now realise that the couple can actually afford to pay £200,000 and so the house is now twice as expensive.

This second order analysis tells us that the unintended consequences of making house buying easier for first time buyers is to increase the price of the least expensive housing. Which is the opposite of what the government said they were doing. Likewise, anyone selling for £300,000 or less who does not increase the price will find selling easier. All the govt interference has achieved is to make selling easier or transfer more wealth to the sellers from the buyers.

At this point we can laugh at govt incompetence or continue our analysis and deepen our understanding. To actually make house buying easier for new buyers the govt needs to INCREASE interest rates. This sounds bizarre unless we have actually understood the previous paragraphs. Each time house buying is made easier, house prices rise.

Let us imagine a massive increase in interest rates, the couple can still afford £600 each month but this only buys a £50,000 home. House prices then definitely do not rise, they fall. Imagine how easy it is saving for a deposit when interest rates are high. Imagine how easy house buying is when house prices STOP rising. This is a third order analysis.

We can then summarise what the govt is actually doing, not helping buyers but sellers.

This is how society works. Govt gets to pick winners and losers. So, would you care to take a guess at who advised our govt that this was a great idea to help first time buyers / good youth vote winning strategy. Well, as a seasoned critical thinker I can tell you it was bank sector lobbying. I mean, it wasn't the oil and gas lobbyist was it? I know that this is the realm of conspiracy theorist but it is obvious once you apply critical thought. Why would the banking sector want this new policy?

We have already done the heavy lifting, high interest rates would help first time buyers but crush house prices. That would not encourage people to take out second and third mortgages on their homes. Many people would struggle to pay high interest rates, so defaults would spike. The banks have done their sums and this is their best current strategy for squeezing more wealth out of us. Let us keep the analysis going.

Whilst banks can make money by making home buying easier, they will. Eventually, this strategy will no longer yield as much wealth as allowing interest rates to rise. I think you know what happens then. Yes, interest rates start to climb upwards, slowly at first. A gentle rise, not enough to cause too much critical thought by the masses. As the defaults start, the bank lobbyist will spin a new tale about careful lending and talk at length about increased risks. Interest payments will continue to rise slowly. You can perhaps imagine the rest. If not, time will reveal it all to you anyway.

Now, to be able to critically think you don't need a high IQ. You need to have a calm and well disciplined mind. Which is what book one of my trilogy helps you develop.

I hope that helps with your understanding of the 'real world' and where we are in this current financial cycle. Critical thought could prove to be a highly valuable skill. Well worth the effort to acquire.

You are welcome

Last month I mentioned free schools and free sweets. One was apparently the best idea ever to a headmistress. The other the best idea ever to a six year old.

As you can see, humans are predisposed to ideas that greatly benefit themselves but like to explain that the actual benefits are for everybody to enjoy. I called this cognitive dissonance.

I shall assume that society is more or less the best that it can be. Nothing is actually free but society can and does provide certain things for free, for the common good.

So, this should be a short blog.

Now, the word free stirs up a great deal of highly emotional debate. So it should. Free school meals, free this and free that all costs society something. What strikes me as odd is that very few of us realise that central banks get to create any sum of currency their little hearts desire for free.

Boom.

This isn't like getting a free school meal or unemployment benefit. No, any sum for any reason can be created in an instant by these central bank currency wizards.

Do your core beliefs see this as a problem? A worry? A concern?

Or nothing whatsoever to do with you?

The Bank of England is a very solemn entity. Black shoes and nice suits. Even Brown shoes are frowned upon. This central bank bunch of suits do not, under any circumstances, want you to think they are simply creating currency and giving it to their chums.

Despite the fact that they are. They even tell us that this is indeed what they are doing. Obviously, they tell us with solemn faces and mention the words 'sound' and 'rules' fairly often. Never the less. They are legally allowed to create currency and give it to whom they please.

Boom.

Is your spider sense tingling? Are your core beliefs untroubled?

Obviously, most are not concerned otherwise it would not be happening.

Currently, ten billion each month is given by the bank of England to their corporate chums. Fifty billion a month to their financial friends. Free pounds sterling to whoever they wish to give it to.

At the same time, benefits to physically and mentally challenged folks is cut, saving millions. Whilst billions are freely given to the already wealthy.

This dear readers is not a problem. It is simply a case of central planners allocating resources. Your resources.

I think the masses need to do some of their own critical thought on resource allocation. You can clearly see where central planners determine resources are best allocated, do you agree?

Boom.

Or just a quiet nod of appreciation that these central planners know best?

Yes but I hear many of you say, the currency they give out has to be paid back. Well, yes. In theory. However, the government has never ever paid back a single copper penny of any of this free currency ever.

BOOM?

This free currency issued by central banks, borrowed by government which is never paid back, flows into our pension funds.

BOOM?

No BOOM?

Is this sixty billion a month of free currency a concern, really?
Allow me to share my insight and my arithmetic skills.
Sixty billion a month shared by sixty million people is £4,000 per household of mummy, daddy and two little ones. Obviously, it isn't politically advisable to take this £4,000 each month from their bank account. So, where is this apparent wealth coming from? It is coming from this families expected pension fund. Again, the nominal value of their pension fund is not being decreased by £4,000 each month. Just its value.

At some stage the value of this young families pension fund will match its numerical value. Which is unfortunate. There is a far greater threat than these four people never having the opportunity to retire. That is, the free currency issued by vast numbers by the central banks, which is helicoptered over to their financial friends and corporate chums, could abruptly change the value of the cash in our wallets to zero too.

BOOM or NO BOOM?

Again, we are back to your core beliefs. Facts can prove anything, therefore facts can prove nothing.

To be fair, a central banker has far more credibility than I have. They have doctorates and degrees and expense accounts and gold watches and solemn faces and black shoes.

The average set of core beliefs the average person has will inform them that I am a conspiracy nut or just scaring you into buying gold or simply a little scamp  causing trouble for his own amusement. You wouldn't be wrong.

However, a broken watch is right twice a day. Is there a sliver of a chance that I have imparted, accidentally, some information that would make me worth my own body weight in silver? (Currently £33,333)

Doesn't matter either way. I have suggested something that might happen only once in a thousand galaxies. If it did happen it would be massively damaging to those who have not considered its possibility. On this basis, I would strongly recommend that you risk a portion of your time critically thinking about it.

If you don't know how to even begin critically thinking about something so potentially huge. Well, work your way through my posts from the beginning where I blather on about watches! (It was for your benefit not mine.) Or read my trilogy of books.

Next month is the end of year round up where I shall list all the booms!

Monthly Musing

This blog attempts to challenge your core beliefs. I like to think that I am cleverly pointing out some of the assumptions your core beliefs are based on are no longer valid.

In the twenties, everyone wore a hat. Everyone had a core belief that everyone wore a hat. At some point, that core belief changed.

Currently, the core belief is that government, although not perfect, is the best way of managing / controlling people.

My core belief is fundamentally different.

The two contrasting core beliefs can be summed up as:-

Government is an appealing / appalling way of managing civilisation.

The problem with not critically thinking about core beliefs is that facts that do not reinforce our core beliefs are simply rejected. Facts that do are kept to hand to be used as necessary.

Thus the famous quote, 'facts, facts, don't talk to me about facts. You can use facts to prove anything.'

Therefore, we really do need to understand what our core beliefs are and check that they are still appropriate. I suggest critical thought is the way forward, I am astonished that critical thought isn't taught in schools as a core subject.

Which circuitous logic brings me to my main point. We have got where we are today with very few of us bothering with critical thought. What would today be like if most of us critically thought?

Better or worse?

Now, many people tell me that they, as individuals, do critically think. They realise that government and banking do have some issues but you just have to get on with life and not worry about it. Their motto is, 'the rules are the same for everybody'.

Assuming that motto is essentially correct, wouldn't it be wise to ensure that these rules are the very best rules that the very best minds can imagine?

Perhaps, but these rules are never challenged. Which indicates to me that critical thought even of the very basic rules of government and finance are not given sufficient critical thought by the masses.

When I was six the rather stern headmistress at my school was enraged when another six year old wrote a short story about how sweets should be free. Apparently free sweets would mean the end of civilisation. I must agree, any fundamental rule change ends that civilisation and begins a new one. The key point of Mrs Farnsworth speech was that who would pay the people who made the sweets? What she didn't mention was that school was free but somehow she managed to get paid. Even as a six year old, I was amazed at how this contradiction caused her no concern whatsoever. Her core beliefs were flexible enough that free sweets would destroy a society but free school would not. This is called cognitive dissonance. The headmistress benefited immensely from free schools and could probably argue for hours as to why free schools benefited everyone else too. If schools were not free and the local children's parents had to pay her salary directly, her salary would have been far smaller.

As a six year old I didn't have the vocabulary to discuss my concerns over her logical inconsistencies. However, even if I could I would have been wasting my time. Unless she decided to spend some time in critical thought regarding her own core beliefs.

Getting people to examine their own core beliefs is challenging. Particularly people who gain great benefits from not examining their core beliefs. Which would be the people in power, with authority and with wealth.

All of this feeds into my core belief that we need more critical thought and hence this blog aimed at the every day folks. The people who ACTUALLY bear the massive costs of this civilisation.

Who am I? (Prepare yourself for some Zen.)

I am a mixture of ancient monkey brain and human being. The two cannot be separated.

I am a complex system of processes within a complex system of processes. The two cannot be separated.

What we believe about ourselves and the universe is just that, a belief. From this belief we have grown massive governments and too big to fail banks. Common sense has been suspended.

I am someone who was born but I have not been comfortable with what most call the real world. Your so called real world is a truly unbelievable fairy tale for adults.

In your world, human beings infest this planet and we need governments and banks to provide and enforce a system of rules, otherwise we would have anarchy and destroy everything.

Really? Under the illusion of keeping you safe our governments declare war on other governments and develop ever more devastating weaponry. There is no logic or common sense to this real world. This real world is a manifestation of our ancient monkey brains. Our inner monkey needs to know who is their superior and who is their inferior. From this we spend fortunes stopping people consuming certain drugs and confiscate wealth via taxes from people consuming other drugs.

Government is legalised theft and banking is legalised theft. I have explained this many times.

So what is the real real world? This is the world we create from the human portion of our brain. It is family and groups of families known as communities. Either in the same physical location or on-line.

Again, these two worlds exist together and cannot be separated.

My problem is with balance and harmony. Common sense dictates that we need a balance but the monkey part of our brain is dominant within our society. I use the word society deliberately. If our human brain was allowed to flourish, then we would have a civilisation. Of course, we do have both a society and a civilisation and this is common sense. We just do not have a balance.

Society has massive government and too big to fail banks. It has achieved this by over stimulating the monkey portions of our brain and by fooling us into believing that we are each alone in a vast universe, a frightening thought which does stimulate the ancient legacy systems of our brains, the part I call the monkey.

This is both true and not true. People are part of the universe.

Allow me to tell you who you are. Initially the universe was simple. There was nothing. Then 'bang' or six days later or whatever, the universe was born. The universe is what it is and was created. We have all deliberately forgotten to remember or even notice what the universe is doing. Common sense must prevail. You know what the universe is doing. It is evolving. It is dynamic and it has a job to do. Clearly, the universe is striving to create ever more complex systems. Now, on this ball of rock that we call Earth, the universe has created what we call life. Even a single celled organism is a fantastically complex system of processes. The universe, quite obviously, did not stop there. The universe strives towards creating evermore complex systems. It does this because that is what it does. Creation is the purpose of the universe. Whatever, you wish to believe is fine. The universe is what it does. A creator of increasingly complex systems. Human beings are part of the universe. As are rocks and bananas. The universe is everything, both known and unknown. Human beings are continuous with the universe as are rocks and bananas. E=mc^2

I will quickly explain the e equals mc squared equation. It states that energy is the same as mass (multiplied by a very large number). There is a vast amount of energy in all matter. You can view matter as solidified energy. However, it isn't. You can view matter as crystallised energy. However, it isn't.

Matter or mass or physical things are simply a form of energy. The universe is striving to form its undifferentiated energy into ever more complex energy systems. The universe has spent a great deal of time and effort creating a rock from what was nothing. The universe has relentlessly striven to create and to create ever more complex energy systems. A rock isn't separate from the universe. It isn't a frozen chip of energy outside of the universe. A rock is still a rock. The universe deliberately created the rock. The rock is still part of the universe. The rock is an energy system which is part of a larger energy system which is part of a larger energy system. And so on.

Man is also part of the energy system. Man is a complex system of energy within a complex system of energy and so on. The rock, you and the universe are all part of the universe and its continued efforts to produce more and more complexity.

Man should not feel alone. He is part of everything and connected to everything via both seen and unseen, both simple and complex, both known and unknown energy systems. Our purpose in life is the same as the universes because we are one with the universe. As is the rock and banana.

The single great truth that we strive so hard to not remember. The great truth that we are determined to never acknowledge is known. Alan Watts who died when I was four, revealed this truth to me via youtube earlier this week. We are part of the universe, we are part of the plan of the universe. A rock is just a rock. A man is just a man. But there is more, so much more. The rock is an energy system. Man is an energy system. The rock is an integral part of the whole universe as is man. The point I am labouring towards is that man has eyes, which are complex energy systems. The universe created the rock of itself and the rock is still of the universe. This is common sense, at least to me. What is also obvious, the universe can observe the rock through our eyes.

That last sentence is crucial. Not only are all the energy systems connected and part of the same initial undifferentiated energy. The universe sees through our eyes. It feels through our emotions and our tactile sensory systems. We are instruments of the universe for the universe. We are incredibly sensitive but only to a very narrow range of energy. Sound waves and visible light rays only. We cannot detect radio waves, or ultraviolet or infrared. Cosmic rays, gamna rays and xrays are not something that we can detect. But, as the universe created us we created tools too.

There you have it. We are the universe and the universe is us. As is the rock and the banana.

Now back to my favourite topic, governments and banks. These deny complexity. They try to manage complexity, first by assuming that the complex is not complex. Well, that only works over very narrow ranges. We are more complex than that, so governments and banks will fail, probably together as they share the same view of us. The strange view that we are not complex energy systems that the universe has created as tools in its quest to produce ever more complexity.

So I am me but I am so much more than just me. I am a complex energy system that exists within loop after loop of ever more complex energy systems. The universe exists to do what it does, develop ever more complex energy systems. I am a complex energy system developed by the universe, of the universe for the universe. I am the eyes of the universe. The universe is able to view itself through my eyes. As it does and can through yours.

Man is both an individual and a cognitive tool of the universe. When I gaze into your eyes I see myself reflected in them. Well, I would because the universe sees through all our eyes.

You are you and so much more.

Thoughts are also systems of energy. As are our eyes. The universe can see through our eyes and be connected to our thoughts. We are individuals but also the same and all separate and all connected.

We do deserve a far better balance of society and civilisation. We do deserve to treat each other better and be more sensitive to our environments because we are all of the universe and the universe exists within us. Our purpose is the same as the rock and the banana and the universe because we are all the universe. Our purpose is obvious, it is to create. Feel free to update the common sense portion of your brain.

There you go, I have told you who I am, who you are and your purpose. Crack on.

Just be. Enjoy being. When the mood takes you, allow the universe to create something through you. Or, create something for the universe. Or a loved one. The universe and the loved one are one and the same.

Have fun but do take care

You, the Rothschild, the C.I.A. and the Illuminatae ('them')

It is my intention with this post to shine a light into a dark and frightening place where our collective enemies plot against us. Now, depending upon your perspective, these people are the shadowy forces behind government, a cabal of billionaires, C.I.A. / Mossad, the Rothschilds, the Illuminatae, or informally as 'them'. Who 'they' are depends upon who you believe 'they' are. Mr Hitler was absolutely convinced that 'they' were jews. In this post, i will reveal two secrets, who 'they' are and why 'they' exist. My reason for doing this is simple, once we truly understand who 'they' are, we can take away their power and control over us. This will require some effort.

At this point, you may be wondering who I am. How do i know such things. Am I credible? This is understandable, 'they' have conditioned you to be this way. Make it your intention to consider this post, to think and ponder about this post, rather than the author.

Secret number one
'they' do wield a vast amount of power. A frightening amount of power. 'they' do exert control over us, both directly and indirectly. 'they' do have significant control over our education, wealth, and our government's. I will name a few of them in this post.

The power 'they' yield is formidable and can be frightening. However, I ask that you do not simply have an automated choice of fight or flight. We have been conditioned to regard stories of 'them' as conspiracy theories and not to take them seriously. Those who do believe can become frightened and desperate, calling those who do not believe in 'them' as sheep or simply not awake. Many people take great comfort from being 'awake', a great start to understanding. A small number of these people strap explosives to themselves to trigger in public places or deliberately drive vehicles into crowds. The third choice to fight or flight is to choose to not react. There is a fourth choice. This blog encourages a fourth choice, critical thought.

If you are suddenly confronted with a lion, fight or flight is the way to go.
In most situations, ignore or critical thought will serve you far better than a overly excited flight or fight response.

It is important to recognise that virtually all the power that 'they' yield existed before 'they' existed. 'they' merely use this power against us. This is where we could start discussing good and evil. However, we can only judge the intentions of our own actions. Even then, most of us are not self aware enough to do even that simple a task. So, don't consider 'them' to be good or evil, simply accept 'they' exist and choose to severely limit their power and control over us.

If we simply define 'them' as individuals or groups that take advantage of a vast pool of pre-existing power, we are beginning to understand 'them'. We do not need to think of them as evil. One such person is Stephen King. He writes horror stories. He successfully taps into this vast pool of pre-existing power. He most likely does this because he enjoys it. He has many fans who also like reading his books. Is he one of 'them'? According to my simple definition above, YES. Does it matter, NO. Is he a problem or enemy, NO.

So who 'they' are is unimportant. 'they' probably do not recognise themselves as 'them'.

Governments are often called 'them'. Tony Blair is often referred to as one of 'them'. Governments do use this vast pool of power against us. Theresa May and Hillary Clinton are currently using this vast pool of power against us. One scaring us with increasing the terror threat level, the other with tales of Putin and Trump conspiring against her and the American people. Remember, we can choose to dampen our fight or flight reflexes. We can choose to ignore or to critically think.

I have now named three of 'them'. May, Clinton and King. Do they know that they are 'them'. That depends solely upon their level of self awareness, awareness of  the intentions of those close to them and of their intended impact upon society at large and their reaction or otherwise to the unintended consequences of their actions.

Just to be clear, 'they' will always exist. Removing individuals, certain clubs, thought tanks and other organisations is a pointless waste of effort.

Secret three is a weapon, a defensive weapon. This weapon cannot be defeated, ever. This weapon can, if wielded properly, reduce the power of 'them' to more or less nothing. The power of this defensive weapon is massive. It is not the equivalent of turning an AK47 into a water pistol, it turns an AK47 into a crayon drawing of a water pistol made by an average four year old. Something to put on a fridge door. Not something to have a flight or fight reaction about.

The secret is not a word, a phrase or even a mythical object. The secret is made up of three elements.

Mindfulness of self

Awareness of others

Demands of society

Once the three elements are understood, as one. The vast pool of power that 'they' appear to control becomes yours.

Written differently, you can become one 'of them'. At this point, don't expect to become a recipient of a membership and benefits card. No, you will simply become the real You. The You you would be without 'them' holding you back. Or not, as always you are allowed a choice, or free will as it is mockingly referred to by some of 'them'.

Either way, you get to decide who You are and the power to realise it.

Finally, you determine if the concepts and ideas that you perceive from this rather repetitive assortment of shapes that we call letters are of any benefit to you on your quest to become You.

With time and effort you really can become You.

Take from this text only that which you can use and adapt on your endless journey to become You, the rest of the text is inconsequential.

Take great care of yourself, whilst I attempt the same.

Monthly Musing

There doesn't appear to be much awareness as to dangers of government surveillance. We are told that this surveillance protects us from terrorists. What we are not told is that it is another method of control.

Again, I am putting forward views that will immediately clash with the vast majority of peoples core beliefs. Logically, this is due to the fact that if everyone had core beliefs similar to mine we wouldn't have too big to fail anything and mass surveillance.

It won't always be this way. Anyway, please allow me to present another 'truth' regarding mass surveillance. Let us assume that without public confidence in the full faith and credit of the United States the dollar crashes in value and that this impacts upon all global trade and currencies in a massively negative manner. That is my stated assumption. The assumption need not be true but based on that assumption I can state, simply, that close monitoring of the public's perception of the dollar is vital.

Now there are two ways of monitoring public perception. There is the method that the British Secret Service taught the American Secret Service, which is through massive data collection and developing the tools to search through this data. This is what is known as miss direction. The system works, in theory only, but in practice over time three important things occur. The first is that more and more data is required, hence the ever increasing mass surveillance. The second is that this gets increasingly more expensive. The third is that regardless of how fast resources flow into such an undertaking, it's effectiveness diminishes. In Engineering terms, it is an utter waste of time and effort. It is a scandalous waste of resources. In the spy world, it is a splendid wheeze.

Regardless, the American Secret Service can now actively monitor their general population and note any special interest in key words, such as explosive. Thus indicating they might be a terrorist. Or they could just be playing a particularly tricky computer game and are asking for tips on defeating the end of level boss. In my example, the key word could be inflation. Or more likely a number of key words. Thus the American Secret Service can produce reams of data that the federal reserve can use to tailor their communications policy.

Thus, we can see that the American public can be carefully managed by those with access to the mass surveillance machinery.

J Edgar Hoover had a much smaller surveillance system but he used it to control key figures not everyone. The much larger surveillance system can easily be used on individuals, in the same way as Hoover used his. Blackmail, coersion and the like but information without someone like Hoover wielding it is just data.

The mass surveillance is believed by those who wield it to be an effective form of control of the general population. It is, up to a point.

A useful analogy would be a kettle. A kettle is turned on to heat some water. Steam starts to be emitted by the kettle. Mass surveillance is a tool that can, initially stop the steam exiting the kettle. Eventually, more and more control is needed to prevent the steam escaping from the kettle. Ultimately, more energy is spent containing the steam than heating the water. BANG, the kettle explodes. Who could possibly see that coming? Well, me and the British Secret Service.

In summary, the three reasons for not allowing mass surveillance are
It is a spectacular waste of finite resources
It is used to both monitor and manage the populations core beliefs
It attempts to control forces that will ultimately overwhelm it in an explosive manner

Here I use the word explosive to refer to a collapsed time frame. In other words, changes that would happen naturally over many years, happen in hours instead.

For the hard of understanding, some major change that impacts upon our core beliefs can readily be accommodated over a number of years. An abrupt change that happens in hours is likely to promote fear and panic that will do more damage than the change itself.

I hope you found this interesting, worthy of additional thought and perhaps something to discuss and develop with a friend over a nice single malt?

Perhaps it is becoming clearer to you as to why I write this blog?

I am on your side, whoever you are.

In the above analogy, I am attempting to be the pressure release valve.

Those of you with flexible minds and advanced reading skills may have noticed that I wrote 'two methods' of monitoring public perception and only wrote about one. The one that wastes hundreds of billions of dollars annually. The other method costs just millions of dollars but does need intelligent intelligence officers with a rare individual, such as myself, at the helm.

Anyway, you might not get what you pay for but you do get what you deserve.

Pension crisis? What pension crisis?

Imagine 80 workers and 20 retirees. The workers produce more than enough for themselves and the retirees. The workers can easily 'save' for their own retirement.

How about 60 workers and 40 retirees? The workers must be far more productive to produce enough for themselves and the retirees, much more.

In the first example, 1/5 of everything is 'sold' to the retirees.
In the second example, 2/5, of everything is bought by the retirees.

The retirees, are simply taking twice as much from each worker, in the second example.

Now, in a simple society, this is understood. The workers are being far more generous than those who came before them.

In our society, the workers simply need to work harder. The retirees believing the workers to be lazier than they ever were.

Now, in the second example, the workers will really struggle to save enough for their pension whilst supporting the retirees. This ought to mean that the value of pension products falls, dramatically. In the above example, pension product values should more than half.

That would certainly be called a pension crisis. 40 retirees living on what previously 15 retirees had.

So are we now in a pension crisis?

Yes. It started a while back, with a big upset in 2007/2008 which we didn't call a pension crisis because those in charge lied, lied then lied some more.

Central banks are now buying a vast amount of pension products at three times their actual value, to maintain and increase their price.

This is most unfortunate. It works for a while. Far longer than is prudent. The cost of this delay of a pension crisis is going to be beyond imagination. Or perhaps not. The consequences are revealing themselves but we are ignoring them or blaming terrorists or Trump or Putin or the North Korean gentleman with the dashing haircut.

The true villain is ourselves. Always has been and always will be until we attempt to be mindful of self, aware of others and of the demands of society. Which is why I wrote the books of the same title.

So when a central bank starts buying the pension products that retirees are selling but that workers cannot afford. Then that is a pension crisis. Ten years on, nobody appears to care. Unfortunately, carrying on will mean that the workers are going to have to work far harder and far longer than the retirees ever did for less and less and less. This will make vast numbers of workers increasingly angrier. To maintain control of its increasingly aggressive population, war is usually started. This gives people a target for their anger.

Again, this is most unfortunate. Can we do anything to prevent this? Yes, try and understand my trilogy of books.

Then we can realise that the retirees have bought pension products, in good faith, rather than actually critically thinking. The workers work, having full faith and confidence in their own government and currency, again with little critical thought.

Fundamentally, this is a question of belief. Without critical thought, men will gladly march to their deaths rather than admit that their lifelong beliefs are simply fairy tales for non critically thinking adults.

Read my trilogy of books and belief in yourself. Your world will then change dramatically. You will start to become the you that you dream of.

Anyway, you have a think. Not about pensions or government. Have a think about becoming an actual human being rather than being unduly influenced and controlled by your inner monkey.

To summarise, you not understanding who you actually are is the biggest obstacle to world peace and mankinds development. Not Putin, Trump, Clinton or the western worlds pension crisis.

Remembering know that how you respond to a crisis is who you actually are. You can be who you would like to be. Initially, this means six months effort and reading my trilogy. Then your remaining lifetime of practice. Do it for yourself, do it for your children, do it for mankind, do it for your God.

C.I.A. (part two)

Recently C.I.A. asset Biden mentioned the soul of America. Which is how the C.I.A refer to themselves and unfortunately they are correct. Biden said that America is in a war for its soul, unfortunately that is also true. A war few see or even know who their enemy is. (You see the face of your enemy everyday, when you look into a mirror.)
Until we start putting effort into behaving more like human beings (INDIVIDUALLY), our souls will be owned by others.
Should we allow the C.I.A. to own our souls? I believe not but this great recession, great depression, great war is about beliefs. Not religious beliefs but belief in ourselves. Are we monkeys with an intelligence add-on? Or are we human beings with some monkey legacy hardware? (Both. Have an awareness of your self and notice when the monkey is troubled. I have written a trilogy about such a thing - read rs, Biden mentioned the soul of America. Which is how the C.I.A refer to themselves and unfortunately they are correct. Biden said that America is in a war for its soul, unfortunately that is also true. A war few see or even know who their enemy is. (Biden knows a great deal and understands nothing.)
Until we start putting effort into behaving more like human beings (INDIVIDUALLY), our souls will be owned by others.
Should we allow the C.I.A. to own our souls? I believe not but this great recession, great depression, great war is about beliefs. Not religious beliefs but belief in ourselves. Are we monkeys with an intelligence add-on? Or are we human beings with some monkey legacy hardware? (Both. Have an awareness of your self and notice when the monkey is troubled. I have written a trilogy about such a thing - see blog below, or not. Your choice.)
Who is best suited to looking after your soul? You or the C.I.A
Who is best suited to helping you care for your soul? A loved one or the C.I.A.
Some actual information regarding what the C.I.A. are below but surely you don't need to read it? They keep you safe, don't they?
(Perhaps read The Mindfulness Trilogy on Amazon, or not. Your choice.)
Who is best suited to looking after your soul? You or the C.I.A
Who is best suited to helping you care for your soul? A loved one or the C.I.A.
Some actual information regarding what the C.I.A. are below but surely you don't need to read it? They keep you safe, don't they?

The upper echelons of the C.I.A. truly believe that they are humans with some ancient legacy wet ware. The rest of America are just monkeys with a basic intelligence upgrade. They don't attempt to wield their understanding to help you become a better and happier you. They haven't made my choice to help you help yourself. They have chosen to own you. To control you. To influence you. All to remain in power at the expense of you and your soul. All to maintain their own belief that they are superior to you.
Ultimately, the choice is yours and yours alone. The source of the power the C.I.A. wield is you. The C.I.A. uses your wealth against your interests. They do this because they believe you are not one of them, a true human being. They are essentially correct.
In this, the elite at the C.I.A. and I are one and the same. The great unwashed need to be herded, Controlled and influenced. Where I disagree with the C.I.A. is in your potential. I believe that most of us have the potential to be beautiful human beings, the C.I.A. elite have chosen to believe that you have no potential.

The C.I.A. are well resourced and funded. They will maintain belief in their own superiority even when that belief destroys them. They will endure and in time, they will ascend again.
The C.I.A. are not the problem. You are. As each of us begins to take better care of ourselves, of our souls, we take our power back from the C.I.A and their equivalents. Remembering now, that we vastly out number them. Virtually all the power is ours. It always was. We are Controlled, Influenced and Alienated for their benefit, not ours.
As we strive to become more mindful of self, more aware of others and begin to recognise the demands of society, we become the elite. Then we can choose to help others become more like us or to do as the elite at the C.I.A. has chosen to do. To control, influence and alienate to gain advantage at your expense.
This isn't about right or wrong. Good or evil. The C.I.A. believe that they deserve far more than what they take. That they give far more generously to society than they need to. They can readily justify their own existence. The fact that they exist means that they are necessary.
Leave the C.I.A. be. They are an indicator of our collective 'humanity'. Should we all choose to be more human, the C.I.A. will simply dissolve.
Numbers wise, we are looking at just 2% That is all it takes to change the world. From what it is, to what it could be. Just 2% striving to become more human.

Anyway, your beliefs either free or control you. You get to choose your own beliefs. The C.I.A and I are one and the same. We have simply reached different conclusions. The C.I.A. exists because it needs to exist. In that, the C.I.A. and I agree completely.

You can make a difference, a massive difference to yourself. This difference will not go unnoticed.
Make your choice. It is yours to make. 
I am beginning to doubt my belief in your potential. A lucrative job offer to work for the C.I.A. would be sufficient incentive for me to realise that the three blogs and the three books are a waste of my time and simply an annoyance to you.
:-)
Regardless, you take care.

C.I.A. (part one)

The C.I.A. exists to keep Americans safe and has a website, so have a look yourself.
The website is designed to make you feel safe and to accept that the C.I.A. is necessary, for your safety.
They call themselves a Central Intelligence Agency. This is true, sort of. The name helps them to do what they do. Which is, where possible, Control or failing that, Influence. If those two fail, then they Alienate.
For the C.I.A. to exist they only need two things. For Americans to believe that the C.I.A. exists to keep them safe and a large powerful government.
The number one priority of the C.I.A. is not to keep you safe, it is to continue to exist. CONTROL, INFLUENCE or ALIENATE are its three core methods of survival.
The C.I.A. is simply part of society. The function of the C.I.A. is to promote and stabilise society. Which is a good thing. Unless, you understand the difference between a society and a civilisation.
A society is what we get when the ‘monkey’ parts of our brain are over stimulated.
A civilisation is what we get when the ‘human’ parts of our brain are in control.
Therefore, the C.I.A. has a higher level function to maintain our society by ensuring the ‘monkey’ parts of our brain are continually stimulated.
Fun fact – did you know that the C.I.A. coined the phrase ‘Conspiracy Theory’, to describe any article that did not promote the ‘Government’ narrative concerning the Kennedy assassination?
Executive summary – the C.I.A. does not keep you safe, it keeps you both angry and fearful.

Why so much hate?

A simple enough question with a stunningly complex set of answers. Perhaps a better question would be, 'why is hate starting to flourish in the world?'

It is the economy, stupid.

Or more specifically, the root of all evil is money.

The answer was soon found and is simple enough for anybody to understand.

Let us go deeper, the answer remains the same but our 'seedling' of understanding can grow into a strong oak tree.

Money is just an idea, it isn't real. Modern society, an increasingly hate filled society, uses bank credit as money. These bank credits do not exist until borrowed into existence. Once the loan is repaid, the bank credits cease to exist.

Now, contrast the reality of bank credits with what society have us believe money is. Banks have money. Banks lend that money to society and if the loan is repaid, the banks can loan that money again. Also, banks are allowed to loan more of this money than they have because that is how it works.

In reality, banks simply create bank credit. This is simply a number that the bank adds to your balance, if your loan application is successful. There is no money, as money is a lie society needs us to believe.

I am progressing towards answering the increasing hate question.

So, where have all the bank credits come from that fill our pension accounts? Well, some entity must be borrowing vast sums and never repaying them. Ever. We call these entities who borrow such vast sums of bank credit into existence, governments. There is no intention of ever not borrowing more every year. For as long as society allows them to.

Government is a vast bank credit borrowing and spending machine. For hundreds of years it doubles the amount of bank credit it borrows every eight  to ten years.

Most members of society have a firm belief that bank credits are money. That saved bank credits are 'money in the bank'. This is most unfortunate.

We can determine how well the economy is performing by looking at interest rates. As our governments borrow more and more bank credits each year, they get larger and larger every year. Should the people be getting more productive each year, then no one really notices how much of their wealth the government is taking. Should productivity fail to rise quickly enough, then the people will start to notice that they are being stolen from. This creates anger but not understanding. Instead of blaming themselves for allowing their governments to grow far too large we blame jews, black people, bankers, muslims, disabled people, LGBT's, Trump, Bush, Clinton, Washington, Iraq, China, diesel cars, petrol cars, the weather or aliens. No. No. No.

We must blame ourselves for never bothering to critically think. We must blame ourselves for being members of society, rather than that which we are. Human beings capable of living in a civilisation.

Not knowing that this choice exists is our failing.

Not knowing that there is a difference between society and a civilisation is our fault.

Hate is increasing and will increase far faster and faster still, as we continue to live in a society based on viewing bank credit as money. Society allows governments to borrow without ever repaying a loan. It allows large corporations and the wealthy to borrow vast sums of bank credit at far lower interest rates than members of society.  This is simply stealing by stealth as few people are educated to the necessary level to understand it. Regardless, low interest rates indicate that the people are not being productive enough to tolerate higher interest rates.

How can society be stopped? How can all this hate be stopped?

There is the easy way and there is the hard way.

The easiest way is the hard way. We simply carry on. Society will explode in time. The explosion will be devastating. This will be hard beyond my imagination. Suicide will be the exit of choice for many.

The hard way, is the easiest. Stop thinking of bank credit as money.

This will probably need some explanation.
A home valued at 200,000 bank credits is a home.
200,000 bank credits in your pension account could be a home. BUT UNTIL IT IS, IT ISN'T

For every 3.2 million bank credits in a pension account, there is only one 200,000 bank credit home.

In simpler terms, for every sixteen retirees who believe they have enough wealth to purchase a rental property, piece of art, lump of gold, silver bullion, piece of land, etc, only one such thing exists.

Therefore, the first person to believe bank credits are not money, gets to swap them for something that is real. The other 15 get nothing.

When one person in 16, stops believing in the illusion that bank credit is money. Society ends.

Civilisation can then get underway.

Society crushes our humanity.

Civilisation encourages our humanity.

98% of people are beautiful human beings.

The other 2% are easily recognised by those living in a human civilisation.


Simply put, there is so much hate because there is so little understanding by anybody.

Anyway, good luck with your beliefs. Sorry about all the hate but that is your fault, not mine.

I finish on a cliche, as I started on several.

Human beings are wonderful creatures.
Crowds (society) is an ugly beast.

I forget the exact words but remember, I make all this up.

Monthly Musing

Helicopter money is being mentioned far more often and at ever increasing levels of 'authority'.

Now helicopter money is not a simple concept. It is a method of control within existing methods of control. It is designed to make banks look wealthy and governments look powerful. Thus it is illusory.

First, forget the word money. Money is not being distributed. Money is only an idea. Gold and silver can perform as money but these metals will not be being flung from helicopters.

Now you can also forget about helicopters, obviously.

What helicopter money is supposed to do is prolong a financial system based upon debt. All our current currencies are only ever borrowed into existence. Once the debt is repaid that currency no longer exists. Each year more currency needs to be borrowed into existence to enable previous debt to be extinguished and the interest to be paid. This works provided the public don't realise they are being scammed and that the public are prepared to be continually more productive each year, ultimately, for less and less.

Anyway, the concept of helicopter money is similar or the same as universal income. Each week or month, or perhaps randomly, funds are added to your bank account balance.

There are two ways this currency can be created. One is that the government borrows it into existence. The principal will never be repaid but a sliver of interest payment will be expected. The second method is that your bank balance is merely increased.

Many people have, as a core belief, the absolute understanding that currency is money. What complicates things is that money is only an idea. Money doesn't exist. However, we can choose to use whatever we like as money. On that basis, currency can be money. What is now crucial is how this 'money because we believe it is' is created. Our current system has us borrowing currency into existence. This has two innate structural flaws / features. It favours the rich who can borrow cheaply. It favours the government who never repay any of the debt. Helicopter money will always be introduced as a concept when the people can no longer be encouraged to borrow more currency into existence than they did the previous year.

Therefore helicopter money performs the function of delaying a deflationary collapse and extends the life of a financial system that is actually a clever mechanism for both controlling the masses as well as taking wealth from them.

What the banks and government hope is for things to soon get back to normal. Only critical thinkers who spend / waste their time analysing the global financial system / public scamming structure recognise what helicopter money is and what its 'unintended' consequences will be.

I am of course referring to you.

I have led you to the 'water'. Why are you looking at me expectantly? What is the point of me drinking it and describing it to you?

It is now time for you to give some critical thought to your own core beliefs.

Use the idea of helicopter money / universal income as your starting point. What do you feel will be the result? Which of your core beliefs guides you?

Now, bizarre as this sounds, I don't know what would happen if we did the stuff I recommend we do. I hope for a good outcome. I can see quite clearly the world as it is and where it is heading but I am not prescient.

However, I believe that humans are at least as good as monkeys. Should the dominant monkeys be removed from a group. Then the group thrives. Should a dominant monkey discover this unled group it soon discovers that the group will not tolerate its dominance.

Assuming humans are at least as good as monkeys, then the future looks bright. If we allow our leaders to lead us then the future looks far darker.

Not black and white exactly, just darker or lighter. Good or evil should you wish a simple binary choice.

After lots of critical thought, I would like to share my belief with you. I believe that humans believe in themselves. A rich human will readily believe he has worked hard, is skilful and perhaps a little lucky. A rich human can easily believe that a poor human has lacked these abilities and not expended enough effort, yet. A poor human can easily believe that the system is against them. Both are right. Both are wrong. The system is gamed. The system works far harder against the poor than the rich but it works against everybody. The system works for no one.

Certainly, the system can be exploited. However, the system seeks control and dominance over billions of people. The force it seeks to control is far more powerful than the force it wields. Those exploiting it risk exposure to forces beyond, or perhaps not, their wildest nightmares.

Exploiting the system requires access to the banking system and the political systems. There are people and groups who are currently taking advantage of the system and of our collective good nature's. No doubt they consider themselves to be clever and not greedy little pigs. They are both.

The system has no morals and has no concern as to the horrors of another world war or two. Each human owes it to themselves to give some critical thought to the world and to the system of rules we obey without thought, that both limit and govern our destiny.

Rules should never overwhelm common sense. However, rules rule. Yet another controlling mechanism. We say law and justice. Laws are rules. Laws overwhelm both justice and common sense. This is basic stuff we all know but don't understand.

Language and words shape our thoughts. Helicopter money or universal income or basic resource allocation?

Who could object to a basic resource allocation program for all human beings on a CIVILISED planet?

(Only those who feel that a basic human being ought to be controlled by other human beings. I deem that to be foolish and yet that is the world I endure.)

I hope I have furthered your understanding of 'The Matrix'. A subtle / brutal inhuman controlling mechanism creating the bars of your cell you cannot see, touch or taste.

Unfortunately, the Matrix cannot be seen, touched or tasted either. It exists yet does not exist. It doesn't care if you know about it or even if you understand it. The Matrix has entwined itself amongst our core beliefs and we must deliberately shine a bright light on all our beliefs to expunge this inhuman, uncaring, amoral darkness. In other words, question everything - always.

P.S. For those wondering what happens to the debt that governments never repay. It finds its way into your pension fund. I call debt that is never repaid a bad debt of zero value. You call it your pension. The Matrix reinforces your belief. Just an example of the Matrix in action. (This sort of thing does not matter, until it does.)

Remembering now that Governments start world wars, not civilised human beings.

Trump and his advisers

Trump has a big brain and knows all the big words, such as 'huge'. He continues to surround himself with people who make him feel clever and presidential.

His ability to critically think is zero. His ability to choose and listen to advisers is zero.

The US is experiencing an accelerating decrease in their standards of living. However, they are told things are worse in the EU. Well Greece is struggling but so is Detroit.

Russia is the new bad guy, somehow interfering in a US election to help either Trump or Hillary win, depending upon which one of these people you dislike the most.

North Korea is another bad guy. A nation of mostly starving people and one fat man. Not a credible distraction but we are supposed to fear them.

China is also an enemy. They aren't helping the US enough with their bizarre and contradictory foreign policies.

Anyway, let me comment on one small detail. Trump is annoyed with China for running a huge trade imbalance. Supplying America with inexpensive real things in exchange for US dollars. The threat being that the US can zero out Chinas vast holding of dollars and US treasuries. Let me paint you a picture.

Trump is effectively encouraging China to diversify away from holding dollars. Other countries can also see this threat of zeroing out their own dollar holdings, should they disagree with one of Trumps increasingly bizarre foreign policy ideas. Thus the world is beginning to feel increasingly nervous about using US dollars as a reserve currency.

Oh dear. This lack of confidence in the value of the worlds reserve currency will further increase the accelerating decline of Americans standard of living.

To simplify, Detroit was not an outlier, it was the first.

For the next decade, America will struggle more and more as the world moves away from the dollar as a reserve currency. The balance of trade deficit will start to diminish.

At this point, the US government will become very dangerous. It will zero out its perceived enemies treasury accounts. It will threaten to use tactical nuclear options. It will further brutalise the American people.

Amongst all this aggression, there is hope. The American people will do the right thing and neutralise their own government. Hopefully, the militarised police and US military will not slaughter too many Americans on US soil.

America will be great again and Trump will play a key role in achieving this. Just not in the way he imagines.

America is about to shape the future of all humanity. I fully expect a great civilisation to arise from the death of our society.

At this point, I could provide help and advice on how to weather this brutal storm. Or try to make some currency from reducing your fear. How about both?

I jest but I do strongly recommend reading my three books, slowly and carefully. They are designed to help you to open your mind to new ideas and to critically think.

For balance, Obama walked the same path that Trump is bumbling down. Clinton would have walked the same path too. It is inevitable. At least Obama did it with style!

Good luck to America in embracing humanity, rather than destroying it. I hope the world can survive however many attempts it takes you to do the right thing. I also hope that the US govt slaughters only a tiny amount of US citizens in this difficult process.

The costs of our society can be measured in the millions of lives it slaughters and will slaughter to sustain itself at the expense of all the humanity of all the survivors.

If you feel this post was negative. Read my books.
If you want to know why we cannot carry on as we are. Read my books.
If you believe mankind is advanced. Read my books.

However, you do have free will. You could choose not to read my books. Then you will never actually know what free will is. All you will know is the illusion of free will.

Read or do not read.  You take care.

Well readers, that is all I have got. I can write more posts, demonstrating how to view on going events through the lens of understanding as portrayed in this blog, so I will probably do that.

I have spent my entire life (47 years) attempting to understand why the world I live in is not the same as everybody else's. Which is another way of saying I was born differently to mostly everyone. As you may imagine, I have massively abused this difference. It has also caused me incredible mental stress. Thus, in the mainstream media's eyes and mostly everybody's eyes my background is varied and certainly not normal. My credibility is zero. My Doctor genuinely believes I am mentally ill. I feel fine. He thinks I am delusional. I critically think and I simply understand that our core beliefs are incompatible. Notice the use of language, belief and feel. Critical Thought is just a stepping stone to enlightenment. It is not enlightenment of itself. Ultimately, all we have is our feelings and beliefs. Let us allow understanding, gained through critical thought, to add depth to our feelings and strengthen our beliefs against those who would seek control over us.

At thirty, I started a degree level course. A very general Engineering course. I see it as a systems analyst and design Engineering course but I do see things differently to mostly everyone. As you well know, this blog isn't (currently) full of standard main stream ideas. At 34, I completed the course, David Watkinson B.Eng(Hons)

The intellectual weaklings and those most fearful of change will consider me a spark. Perhaps a bright spark but dangerous near gasoline / petroleum spirit / petrol. Perhaps they are right.

I see myself as a catalyst. I don't take part in the reaction and I don't start the reaction. All I do is speed up the reaction.

Mankind is at a junction, it always is. One path leads to World War and the other doesn't. On a lovely day, with a full stomach and a day full of options, very few of us would think destroying the planet was the best option.

I am just a catalyst.

I must point out that the point of life is not to understand it but to enjoy it. With a little critical thought, compassion and understanding we can all help guide Earth towards a garden of Eden rather than destroy it.

I hope these monthly musings are easier to digest than last year's force feeding of 'new' concepts.

Changing core beliefs is perhaps best done gently! (Time permitting.)

Whether these words are understood today or multiples of eighty years from today makes no difference to my soul. My body and mind would prefer the former.

Thanks for attempting to understand my particular point of view. I truly hope it helps you to bring the world into focus and make whatever adjustments you see as necessary to your own life.

Ideas should be shared freely. (Mentoring and further guidance, that should be valued and an exchange of value should at least be genuinely offered.)

I wrote this on the last day of August 2016. Events will be heading down the path I have described, both towards Eden and towards World War. This will always be the case.

To understand the world we just need to understand human nature, in other words, to believe in ourselves.

In the coming dawn of civilisation, what could we use for money?

We can still use what we use now. Although we ought to consider them as vouchers rather than cash and tokens rather than coins.

So no actual physical difference, just a change in our collective attitude.

The real difference would be in how this simple change would impact upon our lives. No longer would a busy and much needed hospital be shut down due to a lack of vouchers. Just print some more, we would exclaim.

We would all still go to work, if we wanted too. If we could find nothing paid we liked we could do something unpaid. Vouchers, or their electronic counterparts, could easily be added to everyone's bank/social account each week. It isn't money, so what would be the problem?

I know of at least one critical thinker who may have just exploded in intellectual rage. Or may be not.

Inflation would be high, necessarily high. The over inflated asset prices would deflate slowly or even briskly but hopefully slow enough for people to cope psychologically to the new voucher system.

The best part of a voucher system, in my opinion, would be that it would generate debate on how best to allocate resources.

Pensions would now be a concern, a real concern. Individuals would have to think. Personal responsibility will be a solid foundation of this civilised society.

Gold and silver would not become money either. Someone with vouchers surplus to their needs may well purchase gold or silver as a store of wealth. However, should some people see gold and silver as money, then it could easily perform as money. Money is only an jdea, if you think something is money, then it is.

The current voucher system we currently use has a fatal flaw. An unavoidable deflationary collapse is designed in. If the banks and government delay this collapse for too long we get hyperinflation. Either way, numerically speaking, zeroes out your pension.

Now, here is the really interesting part of my little journey into the world of 'what if'. I don't actually have to persuade anybody of anything. I can view coins as tokens and cash as vouchers. I don't have to rely on a government pension. It is however, very annoying living in such a barbaric society when things could be so much more humane. You could say two percent of the population are spoiling it for everybody. Actually, the truth is 98% of people not bothering to critically think is a far bigger issue. Allowing the government to think for us won't end well. It will end. It will end slowly, as it has since 2007, 1998, 1971 or perhaps 1913 but then end abruptly, perhaps 2020, 2025 or 2030?

Timing when hyperinflation will occur is not possible as hyperinflation only occurs when the public lose their confidence in their own currency system. How can anyone predict that?

Bear in mind, the system came close to collapse one day in 2007. An abrupt collapse. Here the financiers risked hyperinflation and won. Each round of QE is another gamble. As is each change or not in interest rates. As is each bond issuance by any government.

The risk increases every day. The perception of risk by the public appears to be unchanging. That can change in a heart beat.

I choose an orderly change into a voucher system with the government self liquidating due to issuing vouchers freely to all rather than taxing people and stealing, unnoticed, from their pension accounts.

Will this gigantic system of control we call government self terminate?

Mankind faces a test. Will we mature and take a step closer to our potential or take yet another step backwards?

If we believe that governments will not voluntarily give up control then we must expect them to increase it as the financial system continues its deflationary collapse.

However, when sufficient numbers of people understand this blog and thus the world, I won't need to inform you of how force government into liquidation. They will liquidate it themselves. I am sure the surviving core of government will say that lessons have been learned. They won't have. They will just be waiting patiently for us to stop thinking critically, again!

Assuming your core belief in gigantic government paid for with counterfeit bank currency using wealth stolen from your retirement account is faltering, what should you be doing?

Whatever you like, provided that behave as a reasonable human being. There is no need to riot or even write a stiff letter to the BBC. There is no need to be upset or to even have an emotional response. If you are upset, that's fine. Have a little weep if it helps.

Now that you understand the world, you need just practice being a civilised human being for when the dawn of an actual civilisation comes.

You will understand that banks only have an illusion of wealth.
You will understand that government only has an illusion of power.
The promise of a pension, although genuinely given, is just wishful thinking.

Relying on any of the above, knowing what you now know, just isn't possible.

Now that you have disposed of a false core belief you can choose to replace it with something that is actually beneficial to mankind. You may choose to believe in yourself, in developing a new skill, to teaching a skill, to raise a civilised human child, to build a house, to wire a plug, to be happy. The choice is yours and the possibilities are infinite.

The only thing that has actually changed is you. If everyone understood this blog over this weekend, then Monday morning could follow on the same as last Monday morning. Obviously, there would be a great many changes on Monday. Mainly politicians apologising and starting to dismantle vast swathes of utterly unproductive and unhelpful government departments. Bankers, financiers and billionaires would realise their 'wealth' was counterfeit and questions would be asked of the public, rather than enforcing synthetic financial rules that are based only on fraud.

Not exactly cloud cuckoo land is it? Seems very reasonable and civilised to me. Rather than this perverse sick joke of a society I was born into, as were we all. Is it not worth a little effort understanding this blog and explaining it, however you see fit, to the rest of humanity?
