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.

Crowds (society) is an ugly beast.

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?

Let us take yet another look at pensions. Most pension funds are forced by our governments to buy low risk assets, which is government debt.

I hope some of you have just started panicking. If not let us use the lens I gave you last month.

The government allows banks to counterfeit currency with the unspoken / unwritten agreement that the banks never refuse a government request for a loan or ever demand repayment of principal

Let me break this down for you. When a government needs more money, the bank counterfeits whatever amount of currency is required. The bank then unloads this unrepayable debt / bad loan into your pension fund.

Currently our pensions funds are saturated with this government debt so the central banks cannot unload it. Central Bankers then announce some QE (quantitative easing) to cover up the fact that our pension providers are unable to buy any more government debt, so the central bank is stuck with it.

More of you should be panicking now. Have you figured out the double con?

Ultimately, more or less, every penny a boomer believes is in his pension fund has already been spent by the government. The stuff many of us call money is actually just counterfeit currency. Thus the actual value of a boomers pension fund is zero. It is denominated in a counterfeit currency. BOOM.

Now, many of you have core beliefs that will prevent you from understanding this. Despite the fact that I have presented you with truth, you will struggle to recognise what truth actually is. You are not acquainted with truth, hence it looks strange.

Still not panicking? I hope that is because you are critically thinking.

If, as I suggest, dollars, pounds, euros, yen, yuen and the like are counterfeit, what isn't? Those of you able to grasp how I think will know. Gold and silver. Physical gold and physical silver. Now these metals aren't exactly money either. However, they are the closest thing to money on this planet.

I am not doing myself any favours telling you this. I am not retired, so I am accumulating / storing wealth for my retirement. Exchanging my surplus counterfeit currency for real money is far easier when you lot aren't!

Anyway, I'd rather be right than rich. I'd rather live in an actual civilised society than this one.

I hope you are enjoying these monthly musings. I hope they prove to be of value to you and yours.

Earlier, I mentioned that QE is required when more currency flows out of our pension funds than flows in. This prevents the value of government debt crashing and destroying the numerical value of your pension. It also prevents interest rates from rising, as the value of government debt is 100% negatively correlated to interest rates / yield on government debt. If that sort of mathematics is beyond you, sorry. Blame your government. Blaming yourself is a little harsh but ultimately you and only you are responsible for you. In an actual civilised society you would not need me explaining this stuff to you. You would have been taught how to critically think rather than simply obey authority.

Again, we are back to your core beliefs. Challenging those is incredibly challenging. Keep at it, you are fully capable of being a productive member of a civilised world that everyone can enjoy.

You take care and question everything, always.

Last month I gave an example of a narrative where power was grossly exaggerated. The two nuclear bombs were laughably weak and the narrative that they ended the war is a core belief of our society.

Now, an example of something completely under played. Trivialized, when it really should be taken very seriously.

Back to Japan and nuclear power. In my day, back in the eighties there was a big budget horror film about an out of control nuclear reactor heading towards the centre of the earth. In Japan there are several.

I doubt your core beliefs are being impacted by this news. Two similar stories, one where both Japan and the U.S. exaggerated the destructive strength of nuclear power. Another story where both U.S. and Japanese governments trivialize the destructive strength of nuclear power. The common theme is that governments are powerful and in control. Which is delusional but does back up last month's musing of governments lying to us about the really big stuff.

So, who is going to win the next big govt election? I don't care. (Clinton, probably.)
It is like asking your victim if they prefer apples to pears before strangling them.

A tiny accountable government is what you get in a civilised society. Humans are nearly all, civilised. Thus something is clearly wrong. If you feel that mankind is barely civilised and needs a large govt to control it then you are wrong. There are not enough police or soldiers to control such an uncivilized population.

Thus, we live in a fairly civilised society despite having a large government rather than because of it.

You should be concerned, very concerned. The government is costing us far more than we realise. World war two was started by two Governments. Despite the fact that the first government got the permission of the second government before it even invaded Poland. How dumb are we to believe the narratives our governments drown us in?

I hope you are investigating some or may be all of the claims I am making rather than me catalogue them for you and then you decide what you feel about my credibility? This blog is attempting to encourage Critical Thought, not ask about your feelings about the evil Nazis.

So has a society ever existed for centuries without government? Yes.
Living in a town not spread about in small farms? Yes.

Without monkey brained thinking interference? Yes.

Why don't we?

The monkey brained people resort to violence far far sooner than a normal civilised human being.

Janet Yellen controls her own security force despite her belief of how civilised, wise and intelligent she may feel that she is.

You may ask what am I, the author of this blog?

Well a civilised human being is a beautiful thing. I am practising being one of them.

The monkey brained human treats a civilised human being as cattle.

I, quite obviously, am whatever it is that attempts to prevent the monkey brains from controlling society and who prevent it becoming an actual civilisation. You are welcome.

We all have an element of monkey brain within us. Our modern, civilised society is almost entirely based on continually stimulating that portion of our brain. Recent examples include the UK brexit farce and the current U.S. debate about who is the most presidential, Clinton or Trump. Which is also farcical. Which one is the most deluded would be a far better question.

We all know all of this. Yet the comedy continues. Greek society is being gutted to delay the collapse of a couple of large, to big to fail, German banks. Yet we carry on, part of the problem, without ever imagining something actually civilised.

Too big to fail, that is a fascinating concept. For decades banks have lent governments unlimited funds. Governments now tell us that these banks can never fail without destroying society. Well, that point of view is the narrative the government's of the world insist is true. Unfortunately, it is only true if the underlying assumptions, which are not stated, are true.

My truth is different. Mankind cannot mature, an actual civilised civilisation can never develop unless or until banks collapse and take our governments with them.

Governments believe that government is civilisation. That is the main underlying assumption. Large government believe in the continuation of Deutsche bank more than they believe in the dignity of the Greek people. That is not civilised.

The government control is illusory. As is the wealth of the banks. There is a silver bullet that cuts both these down to earth. Time is one. The unsustainable can only be sustained, temporarily, at ever increasing costs. The other is us simply no longer accepting the government narrative without question.

We need do nothing except be patient. Both banks and government will collapse. The cost will be devastating. The struggling Greeks don't get much media attention. Neither do the Spanish who are also enduring difficulties. That the government's narratives are so divorced from reality really proves just how strong our core beliefs truly are.

Well done for reading this blog and (hopefully) shedding some light on your own key beliefs.

Try not to get caught up in wondering whether or not 911 happened according to the government narrative or whether the moon landings were staged. Just question one thing, how can something be too big to fail and what are the costs involved in sustaining the unsustainable? (They are unimaginably horrific. Which means that our current outsized governments are not part of any civilisation, they merely delay it.)

Let me give you a truthful core belief. You can use this as a lens to view the world. It will make understanding the world far easier. If you accept it as true.

The government allows banks to counterfeit currency with the unspoken / unwritten agreement that the banks never refuse a government request for a loan or ever demand repayment of principal.

Take a moment. You need to feel the above truth in your bones. Intellectually, you may wish to do a great deal of research to determine whether or not you can understand the depth and importance of my statement.

You take your time. Four months or four years. Four minutes or four seconds. Once you feel it in your bones, the world changes.

Governments bailed out the banks in 2007 otherwise society, as we know it, would have collapsed. Governments just re-allocate our wealth. Banks create pretend wealth in order to skim our real wealth.

Now you know the truth of it.

P.S. I have written a short book, you may know people who would benefit from understanding it. Simply reading it is easy enough. Unlike this blog.

Mindfulness of Self

Hi Gang, I have written a short ebook on mindfulness of Self. For those who want to know how a mixture of new age spiritualism melds with the cold hard logic of critical thought, read on.

I have raged at banks and government, bankers and politicians. That, is not cold hard logic. That is a loss of emotional control. Which is not a problem or a fault, simply a fact. Cold logic and hot emotion do not meld together.

My ebook explains that the hot emotion comes from the ancient part of your brain that connects directly to your endocrine system. In other words, your hormones.

My ebook suggests several things that you can practice that will enable you to increase awareness of yourself and remain cool, calm and collected.

Remaining calm, in the face of extreme stupidity from billionaires and world leaders will dramatically improve your analytical and decision making abilities. That should be self evident.

Now, let me give you an example from this morning. Billionaire burger muncher and Coca-Cola drinker Warren Buffet spoke about why he had bought a vast amount of Apple shares. Now, this is where you don't want any emotional response whatsoever. You might love Apple products and hate Warren Buffet. Fine. However, financially speaking, you just want to know why.

Buffet said he bought the shares because Apple products are blah blah blah. Utter nonsense. Cold, hard logic suggests he bought them because central banks buy them and they have an infinite amount of central bank funds. Warren Buffet is making a bet that they will continue to buy.

FANG - Facebook, Apple, Netflix and Google. These are interesting companies and Warren has picked the only one with a physical product.

That analysis took me less than a minute and I actually laughed at Warren Buffets 'reason'.

I am following the practices in my ebook too. This morning my car stopped working on my commute into work. I let it coast to the side of the road. Got out. Locked it. Stuck my thumb out for a lift. Four motorists were busy looking elsewhere and the fifth one gave me a lift. I doubt he would have done so, if I wasn't cool, calm and collected.

At work, I mentioned the car and that I was likely to be coming to work on my motorbike. At which point, one person offered to collect me. Would he have done that had I been stomping round the office in a dark mood? No. He also gave me a lift home. This has increased his commute from forty minutes to two hours. John, you are my hero.

Understanding my ebook just helps with life. It just does.

It is free for the next few hours, then free again on the 30 March 2017

I don't believe anything I just wrote. It all happened. My car is where I left it twelve hours ago, abandoned and non functional.

My day was relaxed but busy. My mood never dipped below happy. One colleague did not believe my car had broken down because I was too cheerful.

Do yourself a large favour, believe this post and read the book, carefully.

It is only a few dollars, even at full price.

You take care, as will I

I have mentioned my fear of World War III. This is due, mainly, to growing up in the eighties and my govt delighting in scaring me with nuclear horror stories. I say govt because this happened at a state school.

Now, for the few to control the many, the many must be managed. We must all be homogenized as much as possible. So that when authority speaks, we all listen with the same ears. This is called 'the narrative'. A carefully constructed story that reinforces core beliefs and gives us the story that furthers govt control.

I could give examples but these would go against you core beliefs. How about Hiroshima and Nagasaki? We all know that the utter destruction of these two (civilian) cities by nuclear weapons ended WWII. So, what was the narrative here? Easy, the nuclear power and dominance of the United States. The actual facts hardly matter. Our core beliefs in western dominance and power and my fear of global nuclear war are far more important than the truth. These nuclear bombs were fairly weak. Embarrassingly weak. We have been led to believe otherwise. Does it matter?

Yes it does. Our governments lie to us about the very big things all the time. The narrative is what binds us all together. Without the narrative govt would collapse.

Now the narrative tells us that govt collapse is the end of society, as we know it.      

I suggest that this is the core belief that govt wants us to believe more than anything. What if govt collapse, to say 2-3% of its current size is not the collapse of society but the start of a new civilisation?

What else do governments tell us that doesn't remotely fit in with the facts?

Margaret Thatcher once covered up a paedophile ring with the softly spoken words, 'if the people knew, then it would bring down government.'

Winston Churchill said, 'the only thing harder than getting Hitler into a war was getting him to stay in it.'

Mr Ford, builder of the black model T said, 'if the people all suddenly understood finance this weekend, no bank would survive Monday morning.'

A UK central banker once said, 'if the people understood banking, I would no longer be a rich man. That would probably be a good thing.'

Now, I really am on dangerous ground here. Not from govt or the intelligence services but from you. I am attacking your core beliefs and some of you are not actually critical thinkers. You will feel like I am attacking you and calling you an idiot. Calling your dad an idiot and your grandfather an idiot. No, I am not. I am simply pointing out that you have been carefully managed for generations.

Obviously, critical thinkers will just have a think and do some research and think some more. I am irrelevant. Just a source of interesting thoughts and ideas.

The current narrative is that the Islamic people are out to destroy us. Russia is out to destroy us. China are being held in reserve but will be thrown in with Russia at some stage. Probably the stage where our fraudulent financial house of cards collapse starts causing real pain and a sudden decrease in living standards. All synthesized by the structural defects in our so called civilised society of banking and government.

How do I know all this? I don't, I understand all this. I am a reasonably rare non-linear learner, have a deep but general awareness and high intelligence. I am both naturally curious and analytical. I also have defects but these just reinforce my other abilities, in terms of understanding the world. (My biggest flaw is excessive modesty.)

Am I unique? We all are.

You deserve better. You deserve to live in an actual civilisation. Yet these monkey brained barbarians won't allow it. We out number them by at least fifty to one!

These monkey brained few can only attempt to control society. They cannot improve it. Yet society does continue to advance despite all the wealth and power that they wield in an attempt to prevent change that reduces their control over the rest of us.

Please remember, monkey brained does not refer to intelligence but the innate need to dominate and control others. For example, Janet Yellen is Queen of the monkey brained and she is 'probably' highly intelligent and will consider herself to be highly civilised. Which she is. In this monkey brained themed civilisation we all suffer under, even her.

More nonsense next month.

For those who wish to develop their own awareness, understand more of our monkey brained nature, I intend writing three short 'self help' books, aimed at the masses.

Monthly Musing

Perhaps I ought to explain why the status quo is so objectionable.

There are many reasons. The first, using a key trigger word, is sustainability. The world we westerners live in is unsustainable. Ever increasing debt is absolutely necessary for the status quo. It is also absolutely unsustainable.

Government growing ever larger is also unsustainable. Yet that is what we have had for at least a century.

Ever increasing house prices and financial assets are also unsustainable. Yet, we have 'enjoyed' this state of affairs for decades.

I suppose, house prices can continue to rise as long as interest rates continue to fall. Under such circumstances, a zero percent interest rate is not a boundary. Merely a point to pass through as interest rates continue downwards.

That is the paradox of our western civilization. For things to remain the same, certain things have to continue to change. So no rise in interest rates despite central banker blathering to the contrary.

Is this sustainable? No. America pays much the same in interest payments each year. The status quo requires the debt to continually grow, so it does. The status quo cannot afford increasing interest rates, so they fall.

Politicians blather on about productivity gains. Again, these gains are also required for the status quo to continue.

Those wishing I would be quiet and want everything to carry on without change are missing the point entirely. Ever increasing debt and productivity are essential in maintaining this state of 'no change'.

In the last fifty years, productivity gains have come from women entering the work force and more recently ever more powerful and affordable computer power. Not to mention ever increasing supplies of oil. How can these productivity gains be expected to continue forever?

I read an article that said we needed to find a new oil field every eight years the size of Saudi Arabia's biggest oil field. To keep the 'game' going. Well we haven't which may be why fracking is so heavily funded despite the lack of profit.

That is my answer as to why can't things just carry on.

There is no need to do anything. The unsustainable, eventually, can no longer continue.

The biggest 'promise' our governments make is about our retirement. Apparently, they promised me that I could retire at 65. Now it is 67. In Germany, the people are a little upset too. They were told that they could retire at 62 and now 67 is also their new number. The status quo needs this number to increase to around 80.

The status quo is heavily reliant upon its parasitic financial system. This needs a continuously more productive private sector and a public sector to continually grow its debts or the financial system just collapses. Slowly at first.

Those are a few reasons for my objection to the status quo. I feel that they are quite big issues. I am not suggesting any politician has ever lied about our collective pensions but the underlying assumption of ever increasing productivity has failed and with it our collective pensions. Or at least, the age of pension entitlement will need to rise further and faster.

The pension industry needs returns of about eight percent, forever, to meet its financial obligations. As interest rates must continue downwards, this eight percent becomes increasingly riskier to achieve. If not, actually, impossible. That little paragraph should have you smash whatever device you are reading this on. (I hope someone who loves you has given you a printed copy.) I have just explained that the pension you covet is actually worth nothing. NOTHING. Currently, it is worth something, HOPEFULLY.

At this point, should you be happy that all of the above is a reasonable view of the world, I feel obligated to give you some financial advice that would be worth its weight in gold. I suspect that would be illegal. Illegal is Latin for 'whatever those in power say you can and can't do'. Well, I cannot offer you a silver bullet to protect against whatever collapses first. Not legally. I can only ask you to seek out whatever treasures you truly value. The treasure with true value. I mean of course, your neighbours, friends and family. Somethings really are as good as gold and as shiny as silver.

Perhaps I ought to write a piece on subliminal manipulation. For examples read a newspaper or watch the news.

The trouble with sustaining the unsustainable is that when it can no longer be sustained then we get severe and abrupt changes that will impact heavily upon all of us. Even me.

For the hard of understanding, we are basically slaves on a Roman ship that is sinking. The reason for it sinking and getting increasingly difficult to pull on the oars is that we are not rowing hard enough. Well, that is the government's version of the truth. One that the boomers agree with. Why the millenials are happy to row is beyond me. The only thing that puzzles me more is my own involvement. (Rowing whilst screaming the ship is sinking.) So, are we set to row until we drown? Are there no human beings capable of imagining something different?

My view is that we stop rowing, dismantle the ship and build lots of new ones in a range of sizes and designs. Then we must be forever careful about who we choose to captain the vessels. No doubt, we will eventually be swayed by an enigmatic captain in a huge boat that he says is unsinkable. The boat will be as cheaply made as possible and already taking onboard water but not enough to worry about, yet.

You all take care and look after each other

P.S. A great many baby boomers will really struggle with the concept of nearly all of their pension being worthless. They will also struggle with the reality of heating their homes and feeding themselves but not yet, HOPEFULLY. I do write these things well in advance of publication.

UK inflation expectations 2017

I recently had the pleasure of talking to someone who admitted he wasn't a financial expert but he had maintained an active interest in the financial field for decades. Particularly in regards to mortgage payments, house prices, interest rates and inflation. Well, these were the things we discussed.

I learnt a great many things, most of which reinforced my view. I was also lucky enough to discuss a few things where I was plain wrong.

However, one thing really disturbed me. He expected interest rates to slowly normalize and inflation to increase. His interest rate opinion is as valid as anyone's. His inflation expectations simply shocked me.

This morning, I spent ten minutes with Google and found the following paragraph.

The Bank now expects inflation to hit 2.7% next year, up from the current rate of 1%.
It also raised its forecast for economic growth next year to 1.4% from 0.8%, but cut expectations for 2018 to 1.5% from 1.8%.
An interest rate cut this year was no longer an option, the Bank indicated.
From
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-37860880 
A quick scan of the text and I feel confident that Mark Carney has everything under control, the BBC Business people are not concerned, so why should anyone worry?

Well, let's look closer at the numbers and try to actually understand them.
The words state, 'increased economic growth' which sounds very reassuring. A point I will come back to later. So 1.4% growth and 2.7% inflation. Which means nothing to me. However, if we subtract 1.4 from both numbers we get zero economic growth and 1.3% inflation. Hmmm. Zero economic growth is far too easy to imagine. No pay increase and you spend exactly the same this year as last year. If we change 1.4% inflation to 2% then that number feels easier to grasp than 1.4%.
I believe the numbers can now be easily understood.
Zero economic growth means that, for example, if you spent £100 on chocolate bars last year, you will spend £100 this year too.
2% inflation means that last year you may have bought 100 chocolate bars, this year you will only get 98, unless you spend a little bit more.
Has the first penny dropped? If economic growth rises a little bit (1.4%) but inflation rises a little bit more (2.7%), you get less.
Mark Carney has said this publicly and the BBC has published his words exactly. None of the BBC Business editors or Mark Carney care that this year you will have (2.7 - 1.4 = 1.3) on average just over one chocolate bar less.
Now, this may or may not concern you. It clearly hasn't bothered the BBC or The Bank of England. It isn't just chocolate bars it is everything. Less food, less heating, less petrol, less, less, less. This is a decline, a small one, in the average standard of living, on average, for everybody.

Well, what a silly little society we live in. All the technology and science and we are worse off. Anyway. Let us do second order analysis. In other words, think a little deeper.

Let us make two assumptions. The figures turn out to be accurate, which is a point I will return to. The trend continues for eight years.
A 1.3%s decline in our standard of living for eight years will mean that in eight years time we will not be enjoying 100 chocolate bars each year. We will be happy to accept 90 bars of chocolate.
Should the decline in our standards of living be 2% a year, rather than 1.4%, then get ready to relish 85 bars of chocolate.

Are you still completely unconcerned? Mark Carney is. The BBC is. The BoE is.

The BBC article just re-stated the Bank of England's position. I gave it some critical thought. Then decided to do some more critical thought. Then decided to share the results of my first and second order analysis with both of my readers.

There is a third level analysis. This is one where you realise that a simple reassuring statement from the Bank of England is, in fact, a statement of war. The masters of our currency are quite simply stating you will be getting less and less every year from now. The blame is entirely with the currency masters. However, the currency masters are openly blaming technology in general and robots specifically.

I can understand this and so can you. Mark Carney does. Either way Mark will be eating however many chocolate bars he wants and he expects us to gladly work however hard is necessary to provide him with all his material needs. In return, we get less and less every year. He even publishes the information for all to see. I am an arrogant prick and he is a world class arrogant prick.

You all take care and enjoy whatever you have. In eight years time you will have at least ten percent less.

Fun fact, the Romans call a ten percent loss a decimation. 
The article mentions 4% inflation. After eight years of zero economic growth, your chocolate bar ration would fall to 72 bars. Or, should you insist on consuming 100 bars, your costs rise from £100 to £150
That is what this society has in store for you. Less and less every year. For your children? Far less.
When did this 'less and less' trend start?
This 'less and less' trend is a feature of our currency system. The financial system takes more and more each year. However, science and technology helps us to produce more and more each year. The Bank of England then takes whatever it thinks it can get away with. Currently, the Bank of England is clearly communicating that it will be able to take at least ten percent more from us in just eight years time. This doesn't include all the extra production that the robots will be doing.

So, forget about inflation expectations. What do you think your chocolate bar ration will be in eight years time? How many of us are prepared to accept less than 100?

The top business and financial people don't expect you to be worried about receiving 90 bars of chocolate.
Advances in science, technology and robots could get the chocolate bar ration up to 110 bars easily.

I think we all know where the missing twenty bars of chocolate will be ending up in eight years time. Government waste, CEO salaries and banker bail outs and bonuses.

This is your society. I believe we can do so much better, far more easily.

You all take care of yourselves and each other. The masters of our currency certainly won't.

Just a quick but incredibly revolutionary thought. How much is our currency masters currency worth if we refuse to use it? (NOTHING)
Alternatives to currency are readily available. Physical currency can be replaced with physical silver. Wealth stored in pensions could necessarily stored in physical gold. Electronic currency can be replaced with Bit Coin or similar.

In fact, a human civilisation does not require Bank issued currency. Such a civilisation has a wealth of options.
Only our society needs currency. It is a means of taking wealth (chocolate bars) from the many to the benefit of a few.
However, this isn't what we are told about a society. We are repeatedly told that we all have to make sacrifices (pay taxes) for the benefit of us all.
These are the same people who have blamed immigrants and are now blaming robots for the continued erosion of our collective standards of living.
We are being lied to on a global scale. Outlets which attempt to voiceless concerns are labelled as fake news or Putin's puppets.

I have noticed that I am beginning to rant so I will choose to do something else. If you all want to live in a society rather than a civilisation, then so be it. You have my fondest regards and best wishes for your own and your children's futures.
