CIA releases psychic experiment documents

“Stranger Things” got it wrong. It was the CIA and the Department of Defense, not the Department of Energy, that conducted covert research on potential psychic abilities.

The dubious, fictional experiments run by the Department of Energy in “Stranger Things” may have actually been conducted in real life by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Department of Defense.

Among the millions of declassified documents that the CIA uploaded to its site this week, quite a few reveal information about the Stargate Project, a $20 million secret program that started in the mid-1970s to try to develop psychic abilities in agents and military personnel.

The program worked under various code names such as Gondola Wish, Grill Flame, Center Lane, Sun Streak and Scanate. It focused on remote viewing, which involves someone known as a remote viewer seeing an object, person or place from a great distance with one’s mind or via an out-of-body experience.

According to one of the declassified documents uploaded to the CIA site, the Stargate Project at one time consisted of an activity chief, a senior intelligence officer, three operational remote viewers, an intelligence technician and a secretary. The project’s sole purpose was to test remote viewing methodologies. Even the participant consent form for Stargate seems ominous, reminding the participant that the “potential for injury during some training cannot be conclusively ruled out.”

The project apparently proved to be fruitless, and the CIA closed down the Stargate Project in 1995.

This isn’t the first time the CIA has uploaded unusual files to its website. Last year, the CIA uploaded over 1,700 declassified UFO reports.

“The declassification of 25-year-old records is mandated by Executive Order 13526, which requires agencies to review all such records categorized as permanent under the Federal Records Act for declassification,” according to a statement released Tuesday by the CIA. “As a result, following CIA’s review, documents are regularly added to this collection.”

Approximately 930,000 documents — that’s 12 million pages — are now available in the CIA’s Electronic Reading Room on its website. At least we have a way to pass the time while we wait for new episodes of “The X-Files.”

In Just 5 Years From Now, IBM Says We’ll Have Superman Vision

For the past few years, IBM has gathered its best and brightest minds to make five bold predictions about the technological innovations that could change our everyday lives within the next five years. The series, fittingly named 5 in 5, gives experts a chance to both outline the current state of research and innovation surrounding a topic and set a roadmap for its future development and applications. This year, the underlying theme of the series is making the invisible visible, focusing on advanced perception and increased awareness of the world around us. Of the five predictions, there’s one standout that really catches the eye: IBM believes that hyperimaging and AI will give us superhero vision.

Peter Diamandis Thinks We’re Evolving Toward “Meta-Intelligence”

https://i2.wp.com/www.bioethics.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/transhumanism.jpg

  • Peter Diamandis, founder and chairman of the XPRIZE Foundation, thinks the human species is headed for an evolutionary transformation.
  • The evolution of life has slowly unfolded over 3.5 billion years; but its pace has rapidly increased in recent years. Diamandis believes this heralds the next, exciting stages of human evolution.

From Natural Selection to Intelligent Direction

In the next 30 years, humanity is in for a transformation the likes of which we’ve never seen before—and XPRIZE Foundation founder and chairman Peter Diamandis believes that this will give birth to a new species. Diamandis admits that this might sound too far out there for most people. He is convinced, however, that we are evolving towards what he calls “meta-intelligence,” and today’s exponential rate of growth is one clear indication.

In an essay for Singularity Hub, Diamandis outlines the transformative stages in the multi-billion year pageant of evolution, and takes note of what the recent increasing “temperature” of evolution—a consequence of human activity—may mean for the future. The story, in a nutshell, is this—early prokaryotic life appears about 3.5 billion years ago (bya), representing perhaps a symbiosis of separate metabolic and replicative mechanisms of “life;” at 2.5 bya, eukaryotes emerge as composite organisms incorporating biological “technology” (other living things) within themselves; at 1.5 bya, multicellular metazoans appear as eukaryotes are yoked together in cooperative colonies; and at 400 million years ago, vertebrate fish species emerge onto land to begin life’s adventure beyond the seas.

“Today, at a massively accelerated rate—some 100 million times faster than the steps I outlined above—life is undergoing a similar evolution,” Diamandis writes. He thinks we’ve moved from a simple Darwinian evolution via natural selection into evolution by intelligent direction.

“I believe we’re rapidly heading towards a human-scale transformation, the next evolutionary step into what I call a “Meta-Intelligence,” a future in which we are all highly connected—brain to brain via the cloud—sharing thoughts, knowledge and actions,” he writes.

Change is Coming

Diamandis outlines the next stages of humanity’s evolution in four steps, each a parallel to his four evolutionary stages of life on Earth. There are four driving forces behind this evolution: our interconnected or wired world, the emergence of brain-computer interface (BCI), the emergence of artificial intelligence (AI), and man reaching for the final frontier of space.

In the next 30 years, humanity will move from the first stage—where we are today—to the fourth stage. From simple humans dependent on one another, humanity will incorporate technology into our bodies to allow for more efficient use of information and energy. This is already happening today.

The third stage is a crucial point.

Enabled with BCI and AI, humans will become massively connected with each other and billions of AIs (computers) via the cloud, analogous to the first multicellular lifeforms 1.5 billion years ago. Such a massive interconnection will lead to the emergence of a new global consciousness, and a new organism I call the Meta-Intelligence.

This brings to mind another futuristic event that many are eagerly anticipating: the technological singularity. “Within a quarter century, nonbiological intelligence will match the range and subtlety of human intelligence,” said notable futurist Ray Kurzweil, explaining the singularity.

“It will then soar past it because of the continuing acceleration of information-based technologies, as well as the ability of machines to instantly share their knowledge.” Kurzweil predicts that this will happen by 2045—within Diamandis’ evolutionary timeline. “The nonbiological intelligence created in that year will be one billion times more powerful than all human intelligence today.”

The fourth and final stage marks humanity’s evolution to becoming a multiplanetary species. “Our journey to the moon, Mars, asteroids and beyond represents the modern-day analogy of the journey made by lungfish climbing out of the oceans some 400 million years ago,” Diamandis explains.

Buckle up: we have an exciting future ahead of us.

Prepare For Antichrist’s Global Socialism And A “World Without Work”

As we start the year full of good intentions to flourish at work, social scientists are warning that our careers could be over sooner than we expect. The world is barreling toward what has been dubbed the “post-work economy,” as technology replaces humans at an unprecedented rate. Driverless cars are set to make millions of truckers and taxi drivers redundant and automated fast food service is poised to shut off a key job sector for young people. As artificial intelligence is increasingly able to carry out complex tasks that used to require humans, large numbers of us are set to find ourselves out of work, with no prospects. “Many jobs will be destroyed,” futurist Ross Dawson told news.com.au. “We can no longer be sure we’ll have a sufficient amount of the right type of work for people to be employed.” The experts aren’t sure how soon all this is going to happen, but the shift is taking place faster than predicted.

700 Million Androids Pre-Installed with Chinese Spyware

PowerSpy can determine an Android  user movement with 90% accuracy.

A Chinese software company called Adups, whose firmware comes pre-installed on some 700 million Android devices, has been found to be able to collect personal information from users without their knowledge or consent.

Security analyst firm Kryptowire first discovered the privacy breach in November 2016. Adups data mining was revealed almost by accident by a Kryptowire employee who discovered a backdoor allowing information to be leaked. After that, antivirus manufacturer Trustlook dug deeper and the scope of the privacy violations facilitated by Adups was quickly shown to be significant. The Adups data collector was found to collect text messages, call history, and device information from phones upon which it is installed.

Adups denied that the software is used to collect private user data, but was instead put in place “to identify junk text messages and calls.” They then referred to the installation of it on US phones as a “mistake.”

The majority of Android phones that use Adups are smaller companies that only release devices in Asia. However, BLU Products (which claims to have sold 35 million devices in the Western hemisphere) and several other well-known manufacturers including Lenovo and ZTE also install Adups firmware on their smartphones. BLU announced that they will no longer use Adups firmware on their phones, switching it out for one made by Google. Lenovo, ZTE, and others have followed suit.

Another endangered piece of hardware? Barnes and Noble’s NOOK Tablet 7, which, unlike a mobile phone, cannot remove its Adups firmware with a software update. Fred Argir, Barnes and Noble chief digital officer, issued a statement that Adups does not collect personal information from any of their users. He also said that the bookseller is working on a way to remove Adups from NOOK.

Trustlook advises Android users to upgrade their firmware to the latest version as soon as possible if they believe their phone may have privacy-violating software such as Adups installed.

Android devices typically rely on third party hardware and software, and thus are seen as more vulnerable to security breaches than their Apple counterparts. A piece of malware called “Gooligan” infected over a million Android devices in late November, putting control of the devices into the hands of hackers. Most of the compromised phones were in Asia. In August, mobile security experts found that the 900 million Android phones made with circuits from the component maker Qualcomm were highly vulnerable to cyberattacks.

Can Vaccines Be Tied Into Social Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Transhumanism: A Neuro-musculoskeletal Specialist MD Explains

transhumanism-imagination

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Before I drop some rather shocking vaccine information on readers relative to Artificial Intelligence [AI] and Transhumanism, and how most of today’s technologies are structured toward programming the human brain/mind to become a part of AI, let me just say that when I studied human nutrition, pregnant women were advised not to take any sort of medications, including aspirin! What’s happened that today, mothers-to-be are shot up with several vaccines?

A well-qualified and learned physician, Dr Graham Downing, who is a Neuro-musculoskeletal and Functional Medicine consultant in the UK, was interviewed on The Richie Allen Show posted November 24, 2016 where he dropped scientific information about how vaccines work in pregnant women, their fetuses and in vaccinated infants.  Those disclosures are something no one would want not to know, I think, as Dr Downing’s statements about the published science involved point to why so many vaccines apparently are being invented and will be mandated for all humans.

Here’s a hint: Vaccines may be part and parcel of the New World Order’s agenda for Artificial Intelligence and Transhumanism!

As Dr Downing points out, vaccinating pregnant women induces and/or creates inflammation in their bodies and also increases the risk of releasing inflammatory markers in their fetuses/infants. Such releases include phenotypes [the set of observable characteristics of an individual resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment (1)].

Aren’t vaccines an environmental health hazard chock full of neurotoxic ingredients, e.g., ethylmercury (Thimerosal), aluminum, formaldehyde/Formalin, and other chemicals e.g., sodium borate, detergent, polysorbate 80, inset cells, human fetal cells (diploid), [7] etc.?  That sounds more like a HazMat situation, or even a toxic waste dump, rather than some prophylactic to improve immunity!

Furthermore, Doctor contends that from vaccines there’s an increase in inflammatory cells, which also are elevated in the fetal brain where cytokines release glutamates.  The prefrontal lobes and the limbic system, which involves human emotions, are affected in fetuses from pregnancy vaccines administered to moms-to-be.

According to Dr Downing, vaccines damage the front part of the brain!  Aluminum, aka aluminium, a vaccine adjuvant in four formulations, prohibits glutathione production which is needed for detoxification.  Furthermore, a pharmaceutical-created-enzyme-deficiency prevents detoxification capabilities for baby.  Purkinje cells in the brain also are damaged.

Additionally, pregnancy vaccines create physiological distress in pregnant women along with impacting the developing right hemisphere of the male fetus.  Gross motor skills in male fetuses are impacted negatively, which coincides with more males being diagnosed with Autism.  The right hemisphere of the brain controls social skills.  “The research is there.”

Another ‘tool’ in the AI project is computers, the computer tablet, and their games ostensibly designed to be addictive!  They decrease the frontal brain activity, according to Dr Downing.  All those computer games on phones and iPads ‘inadvertently’ have a ‘designed or accidental purpose’ in addition to being entertainment.  Those computer games apparently decrease frontal lobe and the anterior cingulate cortex activity, creating “a mess in the brain,” he says.

One of the scary points Dr Downing makes is that cell phones are creating social problems by messing with human brains.  [Microwaves cause electromagnetic frequencies that impact the human brain greatly and their damage is called non-thermal adverse health effects, I offer.]

Small children, who are two and three years old using computers-games apparently experience increases in dopamine, a brain neurotransmitter, according to Dr Downing.  Psychopaths have high dopamine!

How does the Artificial Intelligence Agenda fit in?

Is AI a deliberate agenda or is it for corporate profits, Dr Downing asks.   Dr Downing says there are five year and fifteen year goals for AI.  The fifteen year goal is to have AI run everything, including humans!  You have to listen to his comments about that aspect—one word: “frightening!”   To ‘authentic’ his remarks, Doctor cited a report issued by the White House, “A Federal Vision for Future Computing: A Nanotechnology-inspired Grand Challenge.”  Here’s what that 15-page report is about:

Create a new type of computer that can proactively interpret and learn from data, solve unfamiliar problems using what it has learned, and operate with the energy efficiency of the human brain. [3]

[Basically, it’s an artificial brain to replace the human brain.  Also, they want to create a new soul for humans, too!]

Guess who’s involved?

Collaborating Agencies: Department of Energy (DOE), National Science Foundation (NSF), Department of Defense (DOD), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Intelligence Community (IC) [3]

What does that tell you?

However, Dr Downing says that Stephen Hawking [4] supposedly is afraid of Artificial Intelligence: “potentially more dangerous than nukes.”  And we will allow that to happen to us and our children?

How about “artificial intelligence for autistic kids”!

Ostensibly and according to Dr Downing, today’s humans are an obsolete version of Silicon Valley’s dream of what humans ought to be.  Do you consider yourself obsolete?

You can hear Dr Downing’s scientific discussion about vaccines, pregnancy and the Artificial Intelligence—Transhumanism agenda on the “Unborn Babies Being Prepared for AI and Transhumanism through Vaccines and Medicine” show in this video.


https://youtu.be/CPBU5WpmGv8?

William Casey, former CIA Director (1981), supposedly said, “We’ll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false.”  If that were a prognostication of sorts, then what do you think about pregnant women mandated to receive vaccines; 24-hour-old neonates being injected with the Hepatitis B vaccine; and 2, 4 and 6-month-old babies receiving up to nine vaccines at one time in view of what Dr Downing says about brain damage from vaccines?

‘Vaccines are safe’ is the fraudulent-science-prone CDC and FDA’s mantra.

Why has autism, first reported in 1943 as Kanner syndrome [5], skyrocketed from one in 10,000/15,000 in the late 1970s to one in 68 [1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls)] according to the CDC’s 2014 statistics?  Recall what Dr Downing said about the brain’s developing right hemisphere in male fetuses and their gross motor skills when their pregnant mothers received vaccines.

“There is a great deal of evidence to prove that immunization of children does more harm than good.” – Dr. J. Anthony Morris, Former Chief Vaccine Control Officer, US FDA

“The only safe vaccine is one that is never used.” – Dr. James A. Shannon, MD, Former Director, National Institutes of Health (1955-1968)

“The incidence of asthma has been found to be five times more common in vaccinated children.” – The Lancet, 1994. [6]

Why is the U.S. Congress stonewalling on its oversight duty concerning HHS, CDC and FDA regarding toxic vaccines and validly-documented, whistleblower-proven, scientific fraud at the CDC [8], and not rescinding the “get out of jail free” card it gave to vaccine makers in 1986?  In this short video, there’s more discussion about CDC fraud.


https://youtu.be/tvcdh7KlgPI?

Other countries citizens can sue for vaccine damages; why has Congress disenfranchised U.S. citizens of our rights to legal redress for health damages under U.S. product liability laws?  Good question?!

Lastly: “social engineering” of vaccines and the false meme being constructed around them

November 21, 2016, New York University’s Langone Medical Center in NYC held its “Confronting Vaccine Resistance: Strategies For Success” conference, which Dr Suzanne Humphries, MD, of “Dissolving Illusions” fame attended, took notes and graciously shared with the VAXXED production crew’s Polly Tommey.  Dr Humphries contends the conference was about “social engineering of medical professionals” regarding the forcing of vaccine mandates upon parents and those who question vaccines.

The conference panel included pro-vax luminaries like Paul Offit, MD, co-inventor of a rotavirus vaccine; Senator Richard Pan, MD, the propelling force behind California’s draconian SB277; and Dorit Rubenstein Reiss, PhD, pro-vaccine acolyte [9] among others who waxed profusely about how to ‘sell’ vaccines—or should I say—force vaccines onto parents, especially those who have questions and take more of pediatricians and doctors office time!

After watching the 45 minute video of Dr Humphries’ debriefing of that conference, I think she may have been describing what may literally have been a ‘tar and feather anecdotal fest’ about those who question the supposed safety and fraud in vaccines.

By the way, Dr Humphries says that the medical term “herd immunity” has been nixed in favor of “community immunity,” which they are pushing to have 99 percent of the population conform to!

However, what many question is the FACT that medical doctors who have gone through the indoctrination process of medical school; earned their ‘stripes’ and degrees; passed the rigors of internship; and have pushed and injected vaccines experience a complete change of mind and heart to the point where, after being confronted by well-informed parents about the dangers of vaccines, even issue letters of apology to their patients.  Here’s one from Dr Rachael L Ross, MD, PhD.

Even the CDC had to issue an ‘apology’ of sorts about the flu vaccine.  In 2014 the warning went like this


https://youtu.be/M6cVeHUvlmY?

How many readers know about or have seen the apology that CDC whistleblower William Thompson, PhD, sent to none other than Dr Andrew Wakefield, which is most revealing?, I’d say:

“I apologize again for the price you paid for my dishonesty.”

[To which Dr Wakefield replied:]

“I forgive you completely and without any bitterness.”

[Dr William Thompson’s reply:]

“I know you mean it and i am grateful to know you more personally.”

Now, please take in and enjoy Dr Suzanne Humphries’ exceptional debriefing about the NYU ‘social engineering’ vaccine conference.  Note what’s said about Measles around 36 minutes on the timeline.


https://youtu.be/QuwUUqg74r8?

Just for the record: I, and just about every child in the 1940s when I was in grade school, contracted all the childhood communicable infectious diseases: Measles, German measles, Chickenpox—the ones I lived through, as did every child in school, on the block where I lived and never was there any scare tactic by the medical profession about death from Measles or any of the other ‘childhood diseases’!  Moms knew how to treat those diseases without antibiotics and the pharmaceuticals available today.  Do you believe that?!

As a matter of fact, mothers took their children to homes where kids had those diseases for ‘parties’ so their children could be exposed to them, contract them and get them over with during childhood, as they would “fine tune” the immune system and provide life-long immunity [not financially profitable for Big Pharma], plus females could pass along those benefits to their fetuses/children!  Not so today, since the mandated vaccines ‘castrate’ the immune system so everyone who’s been vaccinated needs to get booster shots [profitable for Big Pharma], per the mandated schedules of the CDC and FDA!

What a rasher of scientific bull and scare tactics has been served up to the medical community, gullible-believing parents, and legislators who enjoy Big Pharma’s lobbying gifts, but obviously don’t realize the harm they are doing to their constituents by accepting, endorsing and promoting deliberate scientific fraud [10-11] ginned up by the vaccine industry apparently everywhere.

1st genetically ‘edited’ gene injected into human

Chinese take lead in race to create ‘superhuman’

Leo Hohmann

gene therapy CRISPR tech

Scientists are now on the cusp of creating a more perfect human – one that could avoid major diseases and live well past the century mark.

Chinese scientists on Oct. 28 became the first in the world to inject an adult human with cells that contain genes that have been “edited” using the cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas9 technology.

The edited cells were injected by a team from the Sichuan University in Chengdu, as part of a clinical trial against aggressive lung cancer. Experts say the stage has now been set for a biomedical race between the U.S. and China.

“If you haven’t heard of CRISPR as yet, you soon will,” reports ScienceAlert.com. “The new gene-editing technique is poised to revolutionize the way we treat disease, by offering scientists a quick and easy way to cut and paste genes from our DNA.

“CRISPR/Cas9 basically works like a pair of molecular scissors. Researchers just need to program it, and it can cut out certain genes — or add new ones — far more cheaply and quickly than any previous genetic tools.”

The introduction of CRISPR, which is simpler and more efficient than other techniques, will probably accelerate the race to get gene-edited cells into the clinic across the world, Carl June, an immunotherapy specialist at the University of Pennsylvania, told the science journal Nature.

“I think this is going to trigger ‘Sputnik 2.0’, a biomedical duel on progress between China and the United States,” said June, the adviser for a planned U.S. clinical trial that will use CRISPR to target three genes in participants’ cells, with the goal of treating various cancers. He expects the trial to start in early 2017. And in March 2017, a group at Peking University in Beijing hopes to start three clinical trials using CRISPR against bladder, prostate and renal-cell cancers.

If paid for by insurance, the new technology could be a blessing for millions of cancer patients.

But some warn there could be a “dark side” to this scientific advance.

Tom Horn, a Christian author, filmmaker and researcher, is one who has concerns. He and partner Sharon Gilbert have been warning about the dangers of transhumanism for years.

In a book Horn co-authors with several other researchers, “Pandemonium’s Engine,” he lays out the dangers of transhumanism.

Citing Cris D. Putnam definition, “Transhumanism is a transnational technocratic trend that promises to break through human biological limitations by radically redesigning humanity.”

horn told WND that his predictions, considered extreme by some, are now being proven accurate.

“This story confirms what we predicted recently that it would be no time at all before this technology was applied to humans,” Horn told WND in an email. “It holds great promise in new disease therapies but immeasurable peril due to its capacity to make germline genetic modifications, which would be passed on to all future generations, not to mention planned extinctions through gene-drive technology which is already past ‘proof of concept.’”

Carl Gallups, a pastor, radio host and author of several books on biblical prophecy, takes a look at the CRISPR technology and other advances in transhumanism in his latest work, “When the Lion Roars: Understanding the Implications of Ancient Prophecies for Our Time.”

While he lauds the technology’s usefulness in fighting disease, he laments the lack of ethical restraints on those who would seek to abuse it for their own political agenda.

“There may be an intensification of the efforts of the scientific community to bring some the technology’s more darkly-manipulated aspects to life,” Gallups said.

Among the most controversial aspects of CRISPR Cas9 research and development are the experiments in genetic modification — even that of human infants — animal/human hybrids, and “eternal life” technologies.

And, as was predicted early on, there are potentially darker military applications that could arise from this new knowledge.

Both the U.S. Department of Defense’s research arm, DARPA, and its Russian equivalent are reportedly in a race to create a super-human soldier with human intelligence and brute physical strength.

“To many in the biblical prophecy realm, such developments harken back to the days of Noah and even the Garden of Eden and tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil,” Gallups said. “Of course, Jesus plainly declares in Matthew 24 and Luke 17 that the days just before His return would be characterized as the same as ‘in the Days of Noah.’

“This technology, used for evil purposes, certainly could play directly into those prophetic utterances – and we are the first generation in human history to see such an explosive technological development that goes directly to the foundation of life itself.”

The ironic thing about the CRISPR cas9 research and technology is that, with a few exceptions, the scientific community working on it also belongs to the scientific ideology that “there is no God” and therefore we are only in existence as a result of a cosmic accident — an ancient lightning bolt hitting a non-purposed pond of chemical soup billions of years ago, Gallups said.

“Yet, as these same scientists uncover increasingly more information about DNA/RNA and specifically CRISPR Cas9, they discover the unfathomable intricacies of its information, communication and transportation systems – the very systems they hope might somehow grant them ‘eternal life.’ Yet, they refuse to turn to the one who created it all – so that they might truly have eternal life through Jesus Christ.”

Another author who has reported extensively on gene therapy is Patrick Wood, whose latest book takes an investigative look at the global technocracy movement and its drive to use science and data to rule the world, absent of any biblically based code of ethics.

“It was just a matter of time before Chinese Technocrat scientists would use CRISPR-edited genes on humans,” Wood said Wednesday in a post at his website, Technocracy News & Trends. “Now they have opened Pandora’s Box and a biomedical race is certain to follow. China was the first nation to be run as a Technocracy.”

Gallups says that having such power in the hands of elite scientists unbound by any religious ethics holds the potential for great evil.

“And when one considers the ‘eternal life’ technology promised by CRISPR Cas9 investigators, what student of prophecy cannot help but think of those doleful words found in Revelation 9:6, ‘During those days people will seek death but will not find it; they will long to die, but death will elude them.’”
