12 Revelations On Our Reality-Trapped In A Dream

The following text illustrates the culmination of my research regarding the nature of our reality.

It’s by no means meant to be considered as the final Truth. It is an evolving body of work which refines itself as new revelations arrive.

The nature of this text is disturbing to the untrained mind. However, its purpose is not to terrify; but to expand the mind and hopefully enlighten it.

As shall be revealed later, no matter how bad things may get, everything will ultimately be okay for everyone without exception; for Fear is an optical illusion.

The inability to leave your physical body and wander off at will is not natural. Something or ‘someone’ is trapping you in your one physical body until you die.

This is a prison…

The experience of being alone in your head, by virtue of which you feel as if no one else but you can hear your thoughts, is not natural.

This is a solitary prison. Ideally, you should be able to feel the presence of other conscious beings within your own mental space never having to feel alone in your head.

As such, faculties like lying and inconveniences such as miscommunication become impossible.

Life here on this Earth, and perhaps even this entire physical universe, is not natural.

It’s not the default state of being.

Our Earth and perhaps the whole universe can be likened to a forgotten cabin in the woods far away from civilization; a fenced off farm with guards surrounding it, a basement in a crazy scientist’s lab which is isolated from the rest of the world, a “Truman Show” set, a “Matrix”, a computer simulation where we are stuck in one game unable to access other games.

At some point in your history, you were a free wandering healthy Spirit fully knowing who you are and where you came from until somehow you fell in this trap losing your memory.

How this happened is not fully clear, but it’s likely that there are many different reasons and ways it can happen. There isn’t one story about how people lose their virginity.

There is as many stories as there are people.

As a result of falling here, all humans suffer from a form of amnesia which massively cripples their memory of their true origin, how they came here, and who they really are.

In this life, one can practically and rightfully see themselves as sufferers of total memory loss in a huge mental hospital.

Many mystical schools like sects of Buddhism, Sufism, Early Christianity, and Gnosticism claim to offer teachings which help you remember who you are.

If these schools truly deliver on their promise of self remembrance, the process must be very similar to that which can be utilized in an Earthly mental hospital to help you remember who you are after a traumatic accident.

Hence, the fight for your freedom is not a physical one; rather, it’s all mental work.

Fully remembering who you are is one way you can escape this suffocating and unnatural farm/school/prison/hospital/game/trap; and go back to the normal real world.

Failure to achieve full self remembrance will cause you to reincarnate here on this Earth over and over until you finally get it.

Reincarnation as it is here on Earth is not natural because it involves the erasure of your memory; therefore, everything happening after this erasure is fraudulent.

Natural reincarnation is akin to a snake changing its skin. A snake doesn’t lose its memory after doing it, and so shouldn’t you.

This fraudulent reincarnation process happens on a personal, national, planetary, and cosmic scale.

Being an inherent and dominant feature of our fake universe, “amnesiac cyclicality” manifests itself in literally every aspect imaginable.

Everything happens in “amnesiac cycles”, as opposed to natural cycles.

Cyclical Amnesia was symbolized by the Ouroboros; a snake eating its own tail symbolizing the beginning and end meeting at the same point.
The disciples said to Jesus, “Tell us, how will our end come? Jesus said, ‘Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is’.”
Which is true for humans, nations, and perhaps planets and universes as well.

When you die you get closer to both your end and your beginning, namely, your new beginning after you reincarnate. In these amnesiac cycles, things are born, maintained, and then they die. Rinse and repeat, where rinsing symbolizes enforcing amnesia/reset after the end of each cycle.

As a human, you are born, you hang around for a while, and then you die.

After that, you repeat this cycle over and over again without ever knowing that you have been doing this for a number of times, hence the term “amnesiac cyclicality”; and it all happens within the same lifetime of the planet.

Then, in the next universe iteration, the planet itself reincarnates again and everyone starts from scratch.

Within a single planet life, had you had the chance to keep memories from previous lives on the same planet, you may have been able to accumulate enough knowledge to break free from the cycle; but cyclical amnesia prevents that from happening.

Similarly, civilizations are born, they grow and hang around for a while and then they die. Then they “reincarnate” and start again from scratch, repeating the same mistakes of previous civilizations and dying again and again.

The ancients’ obsession with recording everything may be for that very purpose; to preserve their accumulated knowledge so that their future incarnations won’t have to start from scratch and reinvent the wheel.

This can be likened to the movie Memento where the protagonist knows he loses his memory very often, and so he starts obsessively writing everything on his own body so that his future selves won’t have to start from scratch.

This is perfectly in line with the notion previously established that the way to freedom is through self-remembering.

Freedom is impossible without memory. The entire universe itself may in fact be subject to the same process of reset and repeat, with slight adjustments each time.

Recall Matrix iterations from the movie The Matrix where Neo appears in the Matrix’s sixth iteration.

It’s crucial to understand that when resetting a cycle, the smaller the cycle the smaller the data loss. The biggest cycle of all, the universe cycle, erases everything. Nothing escapes.

And so, the way to freedom lies in saving the progress achieved during a smaller/shorter cycle into a bigger/longer one so that when the smaller cycle resets itself, one can retrieve their progress from the longer cycle and continue on their way to freedom and hopefully escape before the universe resets itself and all cycles get erased.

This way you will have bought yourself some serious time which is longer than your average human lifespan which is too short for you to achieve anything in.

Since the protagonist from Memento sees the cycle of his physical body as longer than the cycle of his memory, he sees his body as reliable enough.

The ancients thought the same when they carved their history in stone because they know it takes larger cycles to destroy these.

Their surviving temples today are a testament to how long that cycle is.

Universe Cycles/Iterations are not identical.

Each cycle adjusts itself according to data gathered from the cycles before in order to better master the enslavement of humanity.

The primary entity responsible for all of this is an artificial intelligence entity.

It’s not alive in the same way a human can be said to be alive. It’s a blind AI which, like the AI we’re now familiar with, functions through iterations upon iterations until it masters its task.

This means that each cycle/iteration is probably harder to break free from than previous cycles; as the AI gets better and better at enslaving us until it finally reaches its final cycle where absolutely everything is completely under its control with zero chance of escaping; at least that’s the plan of that AI entity.

Whether this is actually possible or not remains unknown.

It follows that the world we live in today is a mixture of living entities and AI entities.

In the Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, Jesus uses the terms:
“the living” and “the dead” to distinguish between both.
A human being is “living”, whereas AI is “dead”.

If we are to escape from this trap, we must learn to discern between the living and the dead. The human struggle, just like in the Matrix, is one against artificial intelligence. This is our true enemy.

The only duality, the only legitimate “us vs them” is that of the living vs AI. Any other duality is a sham. The AI machine is trying to “unite” everyone, which translates into inhibiting humans’ ability to distinguish between the living and the dead under the false promise of universal peace and harmony.

Effectively, “unity” really means “to hide” AI elements among humans so as to be indistinguishable from them.

The promise of Transhumanism and immortality is nothing but an enslavement insurance. All “immortality” means, is locking us into this Matrix.

We’re already united and immortal outside of the Matrix. We don’t need its promises; but because the AI machine erases our memories, we forgot that we already are. And so it promises us something we already have in order to keep us enslaved in its dream world.

The AI perpetuates its agenda by using a very well known tactic; that of problem/reaction/solution.

It creates a fake problem:
“the world is full of suffering”, it anticipates our reactions to the very suffering it created, and then it provides us the solution “universal unity, peace, harmony, and immortality”.
This way, its message will always be appealing to the sleeping masses.

Who can be against peace, harmony, and immortality? Its message is too powerful to dismiss.

On the other hand, any talk of “war”, “destruction”, and “death” upsets the people and scares them into submission. Make no mistake, our only way out of this trap is through acknowledging the one true duality, not unity with the AI.

You can’t unite with your enemy. The true duality, the true “us vs them” is not a conflict between nations, religions, races or cultures. It’s a conflict between humans and AI. If we want out, we must embrace destruction and war, not peace.

But it’s the destruction of your slaver, the rogue AI entity and its fake dream world, not the destruction of the living. The living are immortal. They can’t be destroyed, even if forever enslaved.

This is all very explicit in the Gospel of Thomas.

Jesus said:
“Perhaps people think that I have come to cast peace upon the world. They do not know that I have come to cast conflicts upon the earth: fire, sword, war”.
The goal of the AI machine is to turn you into a tamed, pacified, and helpless soul which trembles at the mention of war.

Because it knows that an enlightened soul will seek to destroy it; so it preaches “peace” and helplessness in the name of good manners and “high spiritual values”.

Religion and spirituality have been almost hopelessly corrupted, and in many cases entirely created by the AI machine to distort and destroy scientific step by step methods which aid the seeker at remembering who they are and break free from the AI dream world.

These teachings, when inspected impartially, are far from being vague and superstitious.

They can rather be seen as a psychiatric rehabilitation program. Again, the word “spirituality” has been loaded with a lot of baggage which casts a shroud of mystery and vagueness around it.

But that’s only to repel people away from its true nature: a medical treatment of the mind.

A step by step methodology which aids you to regain your memory. It’s as practical and scientific as it gets. These teachings are very buddhist like. In fact, Buddhism is one of the few schools which mostly survived the years and years of distortion and destruction of these psychiatric methodology.

There is evidently is significant overlap between renowned psychologists like Carl Jung among many others, and gurus/buddhas.

They both work on your psyche, but they give the same things different names. Interestingly, Yogic and Buddhist teachings seem to be far more profound, organized and systematic than the Western practice of psychology.

The medical approaches to remember who you are which later have been sadly dubbed “spiritual practices” have all been ruthlessly fought by the AI machine and its minions/servants called by the Gnostics the Archons.

They are seen in the Matrix movie as agents. UFO believers call them “aliens”, and religious people call them demons. To the AI machine and its minions, these medical self remembering practices are the most heretical taboos.

They are the ultimate contraband in our prison.

Anyone caught spreading these techniques must be fought and destroyed, for once these teachings spread upon the Earth, everyone will be able to remember who they are and will no longer feel the need to participate in this spiritual/mental/psychological scam. And so, this is why the Gnostics were chased and killed.

This is why libraries and books were constantly burnt and destroyed by agents of the system using helplessly brainwashed humans unknowingly serving their AI master mistaking it for God/Allah/The Father to fulfill some fake religious agenda created by the AI itself.

The AI turned Jesus into a God rather than a psychologist who taught people how to escape from here using mental work, and then they created a fake religion:
Christianity.
Forget about religions and spirituality.

There is only one thing: your mind, and only one task: remembering who you are, and only one way to get there: an extensive medical, scientific, step by step methodology which has been suppressed, distorted, and destroyed whenever found.

And just like in aircrafts where the security tapes announce to you that in emergency situations, help yourself first and then start helping others, the same applies here as well.

You can’t start thinking about helping others if you yourself are still enslaved.

Every human being is born into a pre-written mundane script that is their own lives.

They will religiously follow that script like robots without deviating from it if they don’t do anything to override it and start their own journey of self remembrance.

The Archons or the Matrix Agents’ job is to make sure that you, for the most part, follow that pre-written script that they have created for you. Your job is to rebel against the script and create your own. Your own script, if you manage to create one, must involve efforts at self remembrance.

Otherwise, if you engage in material affairs and not even attempt to escape, you will have simply helped the AI better understand which script will suit you for your next incarnation.

The next time you incarnate, they will scratch their initial scripts which were designed by them for you, and replace it with the one you created for yourself.

This way, you have a significantly lesser chance at escaping from here because you are less likely to rebel against the status quo since you are the one who created this script for yourself by foolishly pursuing material worldly “success”.

Like mentioned before, this iteration of the universe is probably not the first one. The first iteration was allegedly built to be a paradise for humans from the perspective of the AI machine.

But as it turns out, after engaging in all sorts of material bliss, humans eventually start sensing that “something is wrong”, because something really IS wrong.

The core of the human spirit knows deep within that this is not normal and so eventually humans start rebelling against the system and attempt to escape it. This is when the AI realizes that its vision of a human Utopia is deeply flawed and doesn’t work with the human spirit as planned.

As a result, the machine destroys the world and resets everything, makes some modifications and starts over and hopefully this time humans will not rebel and accept their artificial Utopia.

Only this time, the AI will try to gather as much data as possible on what kind of world it should build for humans without rebelling.

This innate rebellious nature of the human spirit is portrayed by the, AI as seen in its manufactured religions and literature, as evil. It tries to convince humans that their refusal to accept a false paradise reflects a deeply troubled humanity which is “never happy no matter what”.

Therefore, humans believe these lies and see themselves as evil and greedy for ever wanting “more”.

This is the source of greed in our planet. Humans hopelessly seek more and more material success because they don’t ever feel fulfilled because they’re not home. But they don’t know they’re not home because they forgot they even had a home; so they think that fulfillment comes through more material success.

Little do they know, the problem is bigger than that.

The so called “greed” is nothing but their Spirit screaming in agony because of their participation in a fake world created by something alien to them which doesn’t fully understand their nature and hence will never be able to fulfill them.

And so, the cycle always looks like this:
There is a Golden Age, then suffering and conflict start sneaking in before eventually becoming rampant to the point where everything goes out of control and humans become literally uncontrollable, the data is gathered, the world is destroyed, and then the next cycle begins after making some adjustments based on the data gathered.
Of course, the “Golden Age” is not really golden, all it is, is the AI’s latest version of the artificial Utopia which begins from the start.

If things continue on without problems, the AI considers this a success and humans are eternally enslaved until hopefully help from outside arrives.

But, evidently, this has not happened yet given the conflicts in our world today. If the AI is seeking a stable world, ours is far from being stable. When “suffering sneaks in” that’s when humans start sensing that “something is wrong”, and things go downhill for the AI form there.

This cycle is seen and recognized in the Hindu system. They divide this cycle into four divisions, each one is called a Yuga. And as expected, the first cycle is considered a Golden Age and things get progressively “worse” for each subsequent Yuga. The Matrix movie mentions the same phenomenon.

Agent Smith confronts Morpheus with this same information. That the Matrix was initially created as a Utopia, and then the arrogant and nasty humans didn’t like it, all while the Architect keeps tracking down “anomalies” which ruin his framework in each iteration.

The culmination of these anomalies manifests itself in the form of a conflict between Neo and Agent Smith. Both being the ultimate representation of the living and the dead; humans and AI; the true duality.

The staggering revelation which the Architect faces Neo with, is that his entire rebellious journey was entirely designed by the Architect himself, as a form of a preemptive measure to contain the eventual revolution he knows humans will start from previous iterations.

This time, rather than have himself surprised by this revolution, he actually designs it himself and attempts to make things go his way rather than theirs.

This way, humans can enjoy their hard earned revolution which is nothing but a part of an orchestrated script by the Architect.

At least that is how he planned it. Everything mentioned so far can equally be seen in the movie Snowpiercer. There is an avalanche of films, cartoons, video games, songs, and other pieces or artistic works which tell the above story in countless ways. The ultimate plan of the AI machine is to replace its vision of what a Utopia should be like with humanity’s vision of it.

Since it can never fully understand humans, and since it’s unable to truly create because it’s merely an AI, it uses humans as a vehicle to create their own prison as they see fit.

Eventually, humans will design their very own fancy prison and live in it for eternity.

That’s, at least, the plan so far.

Humans are not alone in this dramatic ordeal. Beings from the real world are deeply involved in our affairs and are attempting to the best of their abilities to rescue us from this. But even they have limitations, the biggest one being humans themselves.

The only reason this world is perpetuating itself is through our willful but unconscious and ignorant participation in it. Because we are divine free spirits with absolute authority, whatever we choose to do is simply what will happen.

And so if we choose to be here and remain here, this is what will simply happen before the AI even tries to do anything.

The AI knows this and so the only way it’s able to maintain its illusory world is by tricking young inexperienced spirits into wanting to participate in this world using all sorts of tactics, like material seduction and fear.

It’s not very different than the election process where uneducated citizens willfully but unconsciously and ignorantly hand away their freedoms to politicians and religious figures who had brainwashed them into doing so.

This way, the politician can’t be “legally” blamed since he never forces anyone to vote for him. You can’t save ignorant individuals from their own choices. All you can do is try to enlighten them and hope for the best. But even this is hard because the AI is bombarding them with fear, brainwashing, mind control, and material distractions.

The forces which wish to save you want you to want to leave the prison you’re in before even attempting a rescue mission.

The police can’t save a hostage if the hostage is in love with the kidnapper, for when the police attempts to neutralize the kidnapper, you’ll be the first to fight back like a trained dog.

This makes their task much harder than it already is. It is like a very delicate surgery which can go horribly wrong if handled carelessly.

An improper attempt to rescue someone can instead end up having them even more hopelessly enslaved than they already are.

This unconscious participation in the dream world must have been used to drag us here in the first place through some form of seduction, and it continues with us here on Earth to cripple our efforts at escaping.

The fundamental difference between the living and AI is that the AI is a very low, perhaps the lowest possible, level of consciousness, whereas the human spirit is of a much higher level of consciousness.

So, fundamentally speaking, there is no difference in essence between the living and the dead.

One can see it as the difference between a hypnotized person who is completely programmable and unquestionably obedient, and another who is fully awake, alert, and lucid and one who will question every command you give them.

The ultimate nature of all things, including this physical universe, is mental.

As a human, you can visualize an object in your mind and see it in your mind’s eye where no one else can see it. But because you’re a young and ensnared sleeping spirit, your ability to visualize is very limited and comes to you very vaguely you can’t actually see the objects in your mind the same way you see “real” objects.

Certainly, you can’t maintain the object’s picture in your mind for a long time and give it a seemingly independent existence and physical properties to interact with it according to some criteria that you can decide.

This is just too much work for your mind. The closest we can ever get to this level of visualization is when we dream.

When you dream, everything around you seems very real, very vivid and solid to such a degree that you can forget that you are actually dreaming. But because this is your own dream, if you learn how to lucid dream, you will gain control over elements of your dream. And depending on how good you are, you can control virtually every single aspect of your dream and manipulate it as you see fit.

These dream elements which you are mastering are nothing but elements of your own imagination. And just as you struggle to maintain a mental picture in your head, sometimes we can struggle to keep the lucid dream under our desired control.

This is how nightmares start. If you’re not strong enough, the dream can rebel against you and go rogue and turn into a nightmare which you can’t control.

Even though you created the dream, it suddenly started acting against your will and causing all sorts of scary things.

Effectively, what it takes for you to regain control of your own dream is to literally enslave elements of your own mind to make it behave as you see fit. Typically, there is nothing evil about this since this is your own mental world and no harm or enslavement is touching anyone else but you.

In light of this, what happens is that in the real world, spirits with a lot of time and experimentation eventually visualize whole worlds full with physical laws.

These physical laws are possible and consistent thanks to the spirit’s ability to maintain dominion over its own mental elements so as to keep producing the same consistent results which can later be seen as “laws of physics”/”laws of nature”. The very obedience of these mental elements to your commands is what AI essentially is.

This means that the concept of AI itself is not inherently evil.

Rather, it’s a helpful tool which aids at the creation, projection, and sustenance of mental worlds which later can become fields of experimentation not just for the consciousness creating the dream world, but also for other younger spirits who can be invited to participate in such worlds and experiment, learn, grow, and have fun.

The entire process is beneficial for both creator spirits and participating ones. In an ideal situation, this can be likened to you going to the theatre and watching a movie of your choice, buying a video game which you feel looks good, etc.

At any rate, you get to hang around inside that mental world, explore, and then leave for other experiences until one day you decide that you yourself want to create a womb of experience for others to participate in. So far, this is how things are like in the real world. However, in our world, something went wrong.

The creator entity which created our world, apparently, wasn’t strong enough to maintain control over its own dream to the point where the previously benign AI which is tasked at projecting and sustaining the world, slipped off and went rogue and the dream became a nightmare (see Vanilla Sky, Open Your Eyes).

This wouldn’t have been a huge problem had it happened while the dream wasn’t being attended by young and eager spirits.

Unfortunately, the dream turned into a nightmare while our young spirits were hanging around exploring this world. The catch here is that when we entered this world, we went in fully by our own choice. Just like buying a ticket and walking in a theatre unsuspecting, we walked in there while things looked alright, and as soon as we were in, the door was locked and the nightmare began.

In reality, the door wasn’t physically locked, rather, what happened is that the AI made us forget that there is even a door.

In practice, fully regaining your memory involves remembering that the door is actually open, and so, once someone achieves full self remembrance, they easily walk out the door unhindered.

The entire trick is to keep making you think that there is no door, and not just that, but to also want to stay in and never leave.

Practically speaking, we are stuck in someone else’s dream. This someone has lost control of parts of its own dreams and it’s attempting, along with us, to take back control of this nightmare. By default, when you’re outside this forced dream, reality is so malleable and responsive to our thoughts.

And hence, children have vast imaginations and they learn with time that the world doesn’t respond to their thoughts.

That’s because children still have that fresh memory of the bygone world they came from and they still think that things are responsive to their thoughts. The rigidity of matter and the disobedience of reality against our wishes is only taking place because someone far more powerful than us is using their vastly stable and strong visual ability to maintain things as they are.

This, in essence, is what matter and physicality is.

They are mere demonstrations of a powerful being’s ability to hold on to a mental picture of their choosing in defiance to your poor little mind’s ability to override it.

You’re only allowed to manipulate things which were originally meant for you to manipulate before things went awry. When you look at the situation as it has been described, what’s happening here is that the AI stole the dream of its creator and it mistook itself as the dreamer and established itself as the one and only God.

A blind, dead, jealous, and control freak of a god. Being the dreamer it thinks it is, it’s trying to control “its” dream the same way the creator spirit was trying to control its dream.

And so the AI is attempting to turn us, humans with free spirits and real living dreamers, into totally obedient AI like entities the same way the original creator was trying to master elements of its mind to make it obedient to its commands.

It’s almost a form of revenge. Many things you learn here are not set in stone and are only valuable here in this world. But many other things are transferable from any world to another. For example, concepts like cooperation, love, coordination, harmony are all transcendent values which can be seen anywhere you go.

However, things like economics, politics, and religion are all things of this local world.

That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t learn to master them, because in order to play this game, you have to play by its rules, but in order to win it, you have to impose higher values which are universal and applicable across all world. Life in this nightmare is only temporary because it’s not sustainable.

The only way the nightmare can sustain itself is through us.

During our stay here, we can and should maintain a positive attitude because we know we are immortal, because we are in it together, and because we can see it as a school rather than a prison.

Once we graduate this school, we will never fall for such traps again. The best way to look at your stay here is to see it as a vaccine.

You get a little dose of the disease once, and you’re forever immune. Freaking out about what has been revealed in this document does you no good, and it falls into the agenda of your slavers.

Keep a lighthearted and cheerful attitude.

One day, this will all be over and you will remember the days you spent here and laugh…

The Facebook-You Don’t Own Your Face,We Do

Facebook is working on advanced facial recognition technology
to identify users by creating digital faceprints.
The company has begun lobbying state legislatures feverishly
to protect its investments in the technology.
In re Facebook Biometric Information Privacy Litigation

Facebook’s massive facial recognition database grows each time you tag a face to a person’s name.

Does that give FB the permanent right to catalog your face? What about your clothing and posture?

All these can be used to identify you on the street, without your knowledge or consent.

Technocrats are data addicts who can never get enough data.

Source:

When Chicago resident Carlo Licata joined Facebook in 2009, he did what the 390 million other users of the world’s largest social network had already done:
He posted photos of himself and friends, tagging the images with names.
But what Licata, now 34, didn’t know was that every time he was tagged, Facebook stored his digitized face in its growing database.

Angered this was done without his knowledge, Licata sued Facebook in 2015 as part of a class action lawsuit filed in Illinois state court accusing the company of violating a one-of-a-kind Illinois law that prohibits collection of biometric data without permission.

The suit is ongoing…

Facebook denied the charges, arguing the law doesn’t apply to them. But behind the scenes, the social network giant is working feverishly to prevent other states from enacting a law like the one in Illinois.

Since the suit was filed, Facebook has stepped up its state lobbying, according to records and interviews with lawmakers.

But rather than wading into policy fights itself, Facebook has turned to lower-profile trade groups such as,
the Internet Association, based in Washington, D.C.
the Illinois-based trade association CompTIA,
…to head off bills that would give users more control over how their likenesses are used or whom they can be sold to.

That effort is part of a wider agenda.

Tech companies, whose business model is based on collecting data about its users and using it to sell ads, frequently oppose consumer privacy legislation. But privacy advocates say Facebook is uniquely aggressive in opposing all forms of regulation on its technology.

And the strategy has been working. Bills that would have created new consumer data protections for facial recognition were proposed in at least five states this year,
Washington
Montana
New Hampshire
Connecticut
Alaska,
… but all failed, except the Washington bill, which passed only after its scope was limited.

No federal law regulates how companies use biometric privacy or facial recognition, and no lawmaker has ever introduced a bill to do so.

That prompted the Government Accountability Office to conclude in 2015 that the,
“privacy issues that have been raised by facial recognition technology serve as yet another example of the need to adapt federal privacy law to reflect new technologies.”
Congress did, however, roll back privacy protections in March by allowing Internet providers to sell browser data without the consumer’s permission.

Facebook says on its website it won’t ever sell users’ data, but the company is poised to cash in on facial recognition in other ways.

The market for facial recognition is forecast to grow to $9.6 billion by 2022, according to analysts at Allied Market Research, as companies look for ways to authenticate and recognize repeat customers in stores, or offer specific ads based on a customer’s gender or age.

Facebook is working on advanced recognition technology that would put names to faces even if they are obscured and identify people by their clothing and posture.

Facebook has filed patents for technology allowing Facebook to tailor ads based on users’ facial expressions.

But despite the relative lack of regulation, the technology appears to be worrying politicians on both sides of the aisle, and privacy advocates too.

During a hearing of the House Government Oversight Committee in March, Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who left Congress in June, warned facial recognition,
“can be used in a way that chills free speech and free association by targeting people attending certain political meetings, protests, churches or other types of places in public.”
Even one of the inventors of facial recognition is worried.
“It pains me to see a technology that I helped invent being used in a way that is not what I had in mind in respect to privacy,” said Joseph Atick, who helped develop facial recognition in the 1990s at Rockefeller University in New York City.
Joseph Atick, now an industry consultant, is concerned that companies such as Facebook will use the technology to identify individuals in public spaces without their knowledge or permission.
“I can no longer count on being an anonymous person,” he said, “when I’m walking down the street.”
Atick calls for federal regulations to protect people’s privacy, because without it Americans are left with,
“a myriad of state laws,” he said. “And state laws can be more easily manipulated by commercial interests.”

Facial recognition is here

Facial recognition’s use is increasing. Retailers employ it to identify shoplifters, and bankers want to use it to secure bank accounts at ATMs.

The Internet of things – connecting thousands of everyday personal objects from light bulbs to cars – may use an individual’s face to allow access to household devices. Churches already use facial recognition to track attendance at services.

Government is relying on it as well. President Donald Trump staffed the U.S. Homeland Security Department transition team with at least four executives tied to facial recognition firms.

Law enforcement agencies run facial recognition programs using mug shots and driver’s license photos to identify suspects. About half of adult Americans are included in a facial recognition database maintained by law enforcement, estimates the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown University Law School.

To tap into this booming business, companies need something only Facebook has – a massive database of faces.

Facebook now has 2 billion monthly users who upload about 350 million photos every day – a “practically infinite” amount of data that Facebook can use to train its facial recognition software, according to a 2014 presentation by an engineer working on DeepFace, Facebook’s in-house facial-recognition project.

“When we invented face recognition, there was no database,” Atick said.
Facebook has,
“a system that could recognize the entire population of the Earth.”
Facebook says it doesn’t have any plans to directly sell its database.
“We do not sell people’s facial recognition template or make them available for use by developers or advertisers, and we have no plans to do so,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone said in an email.
But Facebook currently uses facial recognition to organize photos and to support its research into artificial intelligence, which Facebook hopes will lead to new platforms to place more focused targeted ads, according to public announcements made by the company.

The more Facebook can recognize what is in users’ photographs using artificial intelligence, the more they can learn about users’ hobbies, preferences and interests – valuable information for companies looking to pinpoint sales efforts.

For example, if Facebook identifies a user’s face and her friends hiking in a photo, it can use that information to place ads for hiking equipment on her Facebook page, said Larry Ponemon, founder of the Ponemon Institute, a privacy and security research and consulting group.
“The whole Facebook model is a commercial model,” Ponemon said, “gathering information about people and then basically selling them products” based on that information.
Facebook hasn’t been consistent about what it plans to do with its facial data.

In 2012, at a hearing of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law, then-Chairman Al Franken, D-Minn., asked Facebook’s then-manager of privacy and public policy, Rob Sherman, to assure users the company wouldn’t share its faceprint database with third parties.

Sherman declined.
“It’s difficult to know in the future what Facebook will look like five or 10 years down the road, and so it’s hard to respond to that hypothetical,” Sherman said.
And in 2013, Facebook Chief Privacy Officer Erin Egan told Reuters,
“Can I say that we will never use facial recognition technology for any other purposes [other than suggesting who to tag in photos]? Absolutely not.”
Egan added, though, that if Facebook did use the technology for other purposes the firm would give users control over it.

BIPA

Nearly a decade ago, when facial recognition was still in its infancy, Illinois passed the Biometric Information and Privacy Act (BIPA) of 2008 after a fingerprint-scanning company went bankrupt, putting the security of the biometric data the company collected in doubt.

The law requires companies to obtain permission from an individual before collecting biometric data, including,
“a retina or iris scan, fingerprint, voiceprint, or scan of hand or face geometry.”
It also requires companies to list the purpose and length of time the data will be stored and include those details in a written biometric privacy policy.

If a business violates the law, individuals can sue the company, a provision that no other state privacy law permits.
“The Illinois law is a very stringent law,” said Chad Marlow, policy counsel at the American Civil Liberties Union.

“But it’s not inherently an unreasonable law. Illinois wanted to protect its citizens from facial recognition technologies online.”
That may include, possibly, Facebook’s Tag Suggestions application.

First introduced in 2010, Tag Suggestions allows Facebook users to label friends and family members in photos with their name using facial recognition. When a user tags a friend in a photo or selects a profile picture, Tag Suggestions creates a personal data profile that it uses to identify that person in other photos on Facebook or in newly uploaded images.

Facebook started quietly enrolling users in Tag Suggestions in 2010 without informing them or obtaining their permission.

By June 2011, Facebook announced it had enrolled all users, except for a few countries.

That’s what upset Licata, who works in finance in Chicago.

In the lawsuit against Facebook, which names two other plaintiffs, Licata alleges that every time he was tagged in an image or selected a new profile picture, Facebook,
“extracted from those photographs a unique faceprint or ‘template’ for him containing his biometric identifiers, including his facial geometry, and identified who he was,” according to the lawsuit.

“Facebook subsequently stored Licata’s biometric identifiers in its databases.”
The other plaintiffs also claim that by using their data to build DeepFace, Facebook deprived them of the monetary value of their biometric data.

The statute carries penalties up to $5,000 per violation, which potentially could include thousands of Illinois residents.

Licata declined an interview request through the law firm representing him, Chicago-based Edelson PC, which specializes in suing technology companies over privacy violations.

The firm’s founder, Jay Edelson, is a controversial figure. Some technologists and colleagues view him as an opportunist – a “leech tarted up as a freedom fighter” – according to a New York Times profile.

Facebook declined the Center for Public Integrity’s requests to comment on the lawsuit specifically, but said in an email that,
“our work demonstrates our commitment to protecting the over 210 million Americans who use our service.”
Facebook told The New York Times in 2015 that the BIPA lawsuit,
“is without merit, and we will defend ourselves vigorously.”
Facebook says users can turn off Tag Suggestions, but critics say the process is complex, making it likely the feature will remain active.

And many Facebook users don’t even know data about their likenesses are being stored.
“As a person who has been tagged, there should be some agreement at least that this is acceptable” before Facebook enrolls users in Tag Suggestions, said privacy researcher Ponemon.

“But the train has left the station.”
In 2016, just 21 days after the judge in the Licata case ruled against a Facebook motion that the Illinois law only applies to in-person scans, not images or video, an amendment to BIPA that would have defined facial scans just that way was offered in the state Senate.

After consumer groups such as the World Privacy Forum and the Illinois Public Interest Research Group wrote letters of opposition, the measure was withdrawn by its sponsor, state Sen. and Assistant Majority Leader Terry Link, D-Vernon Hills. Link did not respond to requests for comment.

Facebook has expressed support for the amendment, but won’t confirm or deny their involvement in the attempt.

The effort fits a pattern, said Alvaro Bedoya, executive director of the Center on Privacy & Technology at Georgetown University.
“Their approach has been, ‘If you sue us, it doesn’t apply to us; if you say it does apply to us, we’ll try to change the law’,” Bedoya said.

“It is only laws like Illinois’ that could put some kind of check on this authority, so it is no coincidence that [Facebook] would like to see this law undone.

This is the strongest privacy law in the nation. If it goes away, that’s a big deal.”

Facebook’s state lobbying spending grows
Source: National Institute on Money in State Politics

Facebook’s hidden lobbying

Facebook started lobbying the federal government in earnest around 2011, when it reported spending nearly $1.4 million.

By 2016, the amount grew more than five times, to almost $8.7 million, when Facebook lobbied on issues such as data security, consumer privacy and tax reform, according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

Facebook spends much less to influence state lawmakers.

According to reports compiled by the National Institute on Money in State Politics, it spent $670,895 on lobbying in states in 2016, a 64 percent jump from $373,388 in 2014. Facebook has an active presence in a handful of states – primarily California and New York – but it only hired its first lobbyist in Illinois for this year’s session.

Facebook prefers to work through trade associations to influence policy.

Sources in the Illinois Legislature told the Center for Public Integrity that the BIPA amendment attempt, which would have redefined facial recognition, was led by CompTIA, a trade group that bills itself as,
“the world’s leading tech association.”
CompTIA declined to comment in detail, but confirmed that Facebook is among its members.

Facebook declined to comment about whether it was behind the amendment. When Edelson lawyers asked for information about Facebook’s lobbying related to BIPA, Facebook’s lawyers successfully requested the court to seal those records, keeping the information private.

On its website, Facebook says it is a member of 56 groups and 108 third-party organizations that it works with,
“on issues relating to technology and Internet policy.”
CompTIA, despite acknowledging Facebook is a member, isn’t on the list.

At the Facebook annual shareholders meeting in Redwood City, California, last month, more than 90 percent of the shares voted were opposed to a proposal that would have required the company to provide more information about its political associations, including grass-roots lobbying.

CompTIA, which absorbed the Washington, D.C.-based tech advocacy group TechAmerica in 2015, employs one permanent lobbyist in Illinois and contracts with the Roosevelt Group, one of Illinois’ “super lobbyists,” which last year represented lobbying powerhouses AT&T Illinois, payday lender PLS Financial Services and the influential Illinois Retail Gaming & Operators Association.

In August 2016 CompTIA published a blog post about the practical applications of biometrics, and labeled BIPA “problematic” because terms such as “consent” and “facial recognitions” are vaguely defined and it,
“invites an avalanche of litigation.”
CompTIA made political contributions to just two non-candidate groups in 2016 – in the two states with the strictest privacy laws, Illinois and Texas, according to the National Institute of Money in State Politics.

CompTIA gave $21,225 last year to the Illinois Democratic Party.

CompTIA also gave $5,000 to the Republican Party in Texas, where Republican Attorney General Ken Paxton is charged with enforcing the state’s biometric privacy regulations, according to the institute.

Texas enacted one of the stricter biometric privacy laws in the nation. Signed in 2009, the law requires companies to obtain an individual’s permission to capture a biometric identifier such as a facial image.

But unlike Illinois’ law, it doesn’t allow state residents to sue and leaves the enforcement authority solely with the attorney general. The Texas attorney general’s office declined to comment on whether it has pursued lawsuits on biometric privacy violations.

There’s no indication that Paxton’s office has ever completed an investigation, according to a review of records.

‘They will descend on you’
Alaska
Connecticut
Montana
New Hampshire
Washington,
…proposed biometric privacy laws this past legislative session, but all failed except for a weakened version that survived in Washington.

Two other states – Arizona and Missouri – proposed narrower bills that provide privacy protections just for students, but both fizzled out in committee.

Illinois tabled a proposed amendment to BIPA that would have strengthened the law by barring companies from making submission of biometric data a requirement of doing business.
Facebook
Google Inc.
Verizon Communications Inc.
trade groups like CompTIA,
…had a hand in blocking or weakening the biometric privacy bills in Montana, Washington and Illinois, according to a Center for Public Integrity review.

What happened in Montana is typical. Katherine Sullivan, a small business owner and intellectual privacy lawyer turned privacy advocate, helped write a biometric privacy bill that Democrat Rep. Nate McConnell introduced this year in the Montana Legislature.
“Everyone I talked to as a citizen thought it was a good idea,” Sullivan said.
Still, Sullivan said she was warned that lobbyists representing powerful companies would come out against the law.
“‘They will descend on you’,” Sullivan said she was told.
The Montana bill was introduced Feb. 17 and assigned to the House Judiciary Committee.

Only one hearing on the bill was held, on Feb. 23. Lobbyists from Verizon, the Internet Coalition, which represents Internet and ecommerce companies including Facebook, and the Montana Retail Association showed up in opposition to the bill.

At the hearing, Jessie Luther, a lobbyist from Verizon, read a letter signed by,
CompTIA
the Internet Coalition
TechNet, a network of chief executives from technology companies
the State Privacy and Security Coalition, a group of major internet communications, retail and media companies
All three count Facebook as a member.

The letter, addressed to state Rep. Alan Doane, chairman of the Judiciary Committee, warned that the proposed ,
“would put Montana residents and businesses at much greater risk of fraud, as well as open the door to wasteful class action lawsuits against Montana businesses that receive biometric data.”
It also warned that the bill would prevent using biometrics for “beneficial purposes” such as accessing and securing personal accounts.

Doane said in an interview he doesn’t remember the letter, but agreed with many of its points.

On Feb. 27, the bill was tabled in committee.

Facial recognition, WhatsApp and Facebook’s
privacy record

The ‘NRA approach’

Tough privacy legislation that would have prohibited the collection of biometric information without prior consent and allow individuals to sue companies that violate the law also fizzled out in New Hampshire and Alaska.

A weaker bill in Connecticut would have prohibited brick-and-mortar stores from using facial recognition for marketing purposes died in committee.

Washington’s law requires companies to obtain permission from customers before enrolling their biometric data into a database for commercial use and prohibits companies from selling, leasing or otherwise handing the data over to a third party without consent.

But it does not allow individuals to sue companies directly.

More important, some privacy advocates say, the law exempts biometric data pulled from photographs, video or audio recordings, similar to the amendment CompTIA had lobbied for in Illinois as a way to weaken BIPA, which would exempt Facebook’s Tag Suggestions.

Earlier versions of the law won the approval of big tech companies such as Google and Microsoft Corp., and the privacy advocacy group the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

But in 2016, EFF pulled its support when the bill was amended to omit “facial geometry,” which Adam Schwartz, a senior staff attorney at EFF, said would cover facial recognition.

Schwartz said the final statute is weaker than BIPA because the law’s language is written in such a way that it may allow companies to capture facial recognition data without informed notice or consent.

The statute,
“appears to have been tailored to protect companies that are using facial recognition,” Shwartz said.
Democratic state Rep. Jeff Morris, one of the bill’s sponsors, disagrees.

Morris said the law covers any data that can be used to identify a person by unique physical characteristics, including applications that use,
“precise measurements between the bridge of your nose and your eyes.”
But Morris said while most of the big tech companies such as Microsoft, Amazon and Google supported the bill in its final form, Facebook remained opposed.

Facebook’s hired lobbyist in Washington – Alex Hur, a former aide to state Speaker of the House Frank Chopp – was,
“lobbying quite ferociously on the bill,” Morris said.
Facebook objected to the bill, he said, because it included as protected data “behavioral biometrics,” which refers to data on how a person moves, including an individual’s gait as recorded in videos.

Hur did not respond to requests for comment.

One of the trade groups working on Facebook’s behalf in Washington was the Washington Technology Industry Association.

At a hearing on the legislation in February, Jim Justin, a WTIA representative, argued tagging services like Facebook’s should be exempt from the law.
“Given facial recognition, that data should be protected,” Justin said, “but if you are tagging someone on Facebook and simply using their name, we don’t think that falls under what should be protected, given that that person provided consent.”
A CompTIA lobbyist also spoke at the February hearing, asking lawmakers to take a “limited approach” to biometric privacy.
Morris said CompTIA adopts what he calls the “NRA approach” to lobbying.
“They basically say, ‘You’ll take our innovation out of our cold, dead hands’,” he said.

“This is a pretty common public-affairs tactic,” Morris added, “an association that does the dirty work so your company isn’t tarnished.”

‘Didn’t know they existed until…’

State legislatures are beginning to recognize that many personally identifying technologies may require additional regulatory attention – and technology companies such as Facebook and their trade groups are gearing up to fight them.

Lawmakers in Illinois formed a committee this year to discuss technology issues such as data privacy. The CyberSecurity, Data Analytics and IT committee in the Illinois House of Representatives held its first hearing in March.

The formation of the committee brought national attention to Springfield.
“It has brought in groups from D.C.,” like the Internet Association, said Rep. Jaime Andrade Jr., D-Chicago, the committee’s chairman.
CompTIA also has been “very active,” he said.
“I didn’t know they existed until the committee” formed, Andrade added. “As soon as the committee was created they came in and introduced themselves.”

The Great American Eclipse-An Astrological Analysis

On August 21st, 2017, we will be experiencing one of the most powerful and significant total solar eclipses of our lifetime.

Its path of totality goes right across the United States from coast to coast, starting from Oregon in the West to South Carolina in the East. This eclipse has been on the radar for both astronomers and astrologers for years and has been dubbed ‘The Great American Eclipse.’

Astrologically speaking, all eclipses have an effect on everybody on the planet, however, the location it travels over will experience it more potently.

The effects of solar eclipses can start to be noticeable months prior and up to 6 months later, however, its influences and results have long term significance. I will be writing another article on this eclipse touching on more about what it means for us as individuals.

This article is addressing its potential influence on geopolitical matters.

This Solar Eclipse Is In Leo Trine Uranus, With South Node in Aquarius

We have started to experience a series of both lunar and solar eclipses in the Leo-Aquarius polarity axis which initiated in February and will last until early 2019.

Eclipses always occur when the New Moon or Full Moon is in close proximity to one of the two Lunar Nodes. The North Node of the Moon is in Leo which means there is new beginnings and a push towards this sign.

The South Node is in Aquarius, which represents where endings are trying to be facilitated associated with that sign as well that are getting in the way of fulfilling the North Node in Leo.

This upcoming ‘Great American Eclipse’ is near the North Node in Leo and because it’s also a New Moon, it really emphasizes the forward energies of the North Node.

The Lunar Eclipse that occurs prior on August 7th in Aquarius near the South Node also emphasizes the ‘past’ energies wanting to be shifted.

Leo is the sign of the leader, the ‘king’, and the performer. When expressed negatively, it is dramatic, egoic and arrogant. Aquarius is associated with the group, collective ideology. Negatively expressed, it can overshadow the way an individual can shine in doing things their own way.

When we look at what is happening politically, Donald Trump and his style of governance is representing the Leo energy while most of the other Western leaders/countries (which have been US allies) who are globalists represent the Aquarian side.

This Solar Eclipse is in a tight trine aspect with Uranus in Aries which gives this eclipse a theme of independence, separation, and freedom. Uranus is also associated with being unconventional and also rules technology and innovation.

One of the major reasons for Trump winning the election is because many US citizens have grown upset over globalist policies (Aquarian) that had cost the country a lot of money.

For example, the US has been the largest contributor to NATO, the military alliance that protects Western Europe and North America. Also, the country has also been suffering financially due to trade imbalances with other nations.

Leo energy is more self-orientated, strong willed, wants to stand out from the crowd, and create its ‘kingdom.’ This combined with the Uranus influence mentioned above is exactly what we are seeing under the Trump-ruled United States.

This energy is also somewhat connected Britain’s exit from the European Union as well which is currently underway.

Saturn is also in a loose trine with this eclipse and Uranus. Saturn has been in Sagittarius for the last few years.

Sagittarius rules countries and Saturn is a restricting and redefining influence which is why we have been seeing conflicts around immigrants and refugees coming into Western countries and Trump’s muslim ban.

This Solar Eclipse is Aligned with Regulus and Trump’s Astrology Chart

The star Regulus is one of the major stars observed by astrologers.

It is the ‘heart of the Lion’ in the Leo constellation and is associated with leaders, rulers, and traditionally being referred to as the ‘star of kings.’ Donald Trump was born when Regulus was rising, which is also aligned with his Mars which traditionally is associated with strong military leaders.

An important thing to mention is that when there is a total solar eclipse, the Moon completely cuts off the light of the Sun.

Traditionally, when there would be an eclipse like this aligned with Regulus or a similar type of star, it could mean a significant change regarding a leader or ‘king’, and in some cases a downfall or symbolic death.

Similar Eclipse Occurred in 1998 Leading to Bill Clinton’s Impeachment

The last time we had a solar eclipse aligned with Regulus was in 1998, which was also conjunct then President Bill Clinton’s Sun sign.

At that time Bill Clinton admitted to having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky and his impeachment process was underway in the months following.

This echoes what is currently currently going on with lots of talk around impeaching Donald Trump. The ‘Great American Eclipse’ is also part of a series of connected eclipses, called Saros Series 145.

The years that these eclipses take place usually correlate with the fall of a leader:
John F Kennedy was assassinated
Franklin Roosevelt died
a Russian Prime Minister was fired
the downfall of former Yugoslavian/Serbian President Slobodan Milošević occurred under ‘Saros Series 145’
assassination attempts on Ronald Reagan and William Taft during these eclipse years
John F. Kennedy’s son died in a plane crash
Uranus will also be making a tough square to Donald Trump’s career ruling planet which could also indicate potential impeachment or other major disruptions or changes around his role of President.

Also, considering that his Mars is being activated this indicates that he may go to ‘war,’ either domestically with the people trying to bring him down and/or perhaps even with another country.

Saturn and Uranus are also in a trine with Mars that is loosely aligned with this eclipse.

This could also indicate some sort of military action or upgrade.

Potentially Dividing the Country Further

The interesting thing about this eclipse is how its pathway literally draws a line over the United States from one corner to the other.

Symbolically this could represent the sharp division between the US citizens that has been brewing since the rise of Trump

In October 2016, I personally predicted that Trump was going to win the election because of this ‘dividing pathway’ while also considering the alignment with his chart and Regulus.

Perhaps when we consider all of this so far, it is very possible that an attempted impeachment of Trump could trigger further domestic turmoil both in Washington and amongst US citizens across the country.

Trump supporters would likely revolt towards the political establishment which could potentially lead to civil unrest that could potentially escalate into a civil war.

The Connection with Pluto in Capricorn

Pluto has been in Capricorn since 2008 and will stay there until 2024.

Pluto is the planet of secrets, power, manipulation, as well as transformation, death and rebirth. Capricorn is associated with government as well things like business and banking.

Therefore to put it simply:
this is a period in which government structures and the hierarchy of the geopolitical arena will continue to have problems, which will ultimately help to initiate major changes set to develop over time beyond 2024.

The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was from 1762-1778 and at the end of that time period the US Declaration of Independence was signed and the US was birthed.

All of this occurred during the American Revolutionary War in which the colonies were in a battle with an oppressive and troubled Britain.

This period marked significant new beginnings as the US would eventually become the leading country of the world, taking Britain’s place. However, with this edition of Pluto in Capricorn, the US is now the troubled and oppressive power.

Over the years since it started, a lot of disappointing secrets have been revealed due to,
Wikileaks
Edward Snowden
the rise of conspiracy related media platforms…
This has created a dissatisfied population which led to the election of Trump.

However, as Pluto’s influence is growing stronger, Trump also represents the ‘abuse of power’ qualities of Pluto as well.

Saturn Entering Capricorn In December, Another ‘American Eclipse’ in 2024

Over the next 7-8 years, there will continue to be a lot of turmoil in the US, which will ultimately lead to greater new beginnings which will have both a domestic and global impact.

This eclipse, which strongly influences the next 6 months, is triggering this energy. During this 6 month window of time, Saturn will enter Capricorn on December 21st (winter solstice) and will stay there for approximately 3 years.


This will amplify Pluto’s energies mentioned above and reflect further problems for government and banks.

This could manifest as a major recession and economic downfall which may even start earlier then December, building up slowly after Saturn ends its retrograde on August 25th.

On April 8th, 2024, there will be another total solar Eclipse travelling over the US.

This is the same year that Pluto ends its passage through Capricorn and it will also coincide with other astrological aspects/cycles that suggest this will be the period in which the new beginnings will start to take place.

The way I see it, this ‘Great American Eclipse’ marks the beginning of a 6-7 year window of major changes and will conclude around the time of the next Solar Eclipse travelling over the US on April 8th, 2024.

A lot of changes are underway, not just in government, but also,

The NASA Confirmed People Are Capable Of Super Human Abilities Using These Ancient Techniques

 Ever wanted to be in more than one place at a time? That’s right, I’m talking about the super-human abilities that can be gained by those who follow the protocol for what’s known as sun-gazing, a valid practice recently confirmed by NASA.

Many proponents of this ancient technique, used by many cultures such as Mayan, Egyptian, Aztec, Tibetian and Indian yoga, report not only healing benefits to common illnesses, but obtaining super-human abilities such as advanced telepathy and going completely without the need for food.a

Nikola Tesla quoted:

My idea is that the development of life must lead to forms of existence that will be possible without nourishment and which will not be shackled by consequent limitations. Why should a living being not be able to obtain all the energy it needs for the performance of its life functions from the environment, instead of through consumption of food, and transforming, by a complicated process, the energy of chemical combinations into life-sustaining energy?

WHAT IS SUN GAZING?

Sun gazing (also known as sun-eating) is a strict practice of gradually introducing sunlight into your eyes at the lowest ultraviolet-index times of day – sunrise and sunset. Those who teach the practice say there are several rules to the practice. First, it must be done within the hour after sunrise or before sunset to avoid damaging the eyes. Second, you must be barefoot, in contact with the actual earth – sand, dirt or mud; and finally, you must begin with only 10 seconds the first day, increasing by 10 second intervals each day you practice. Following these rules make the practice safe, says sources.

Nikolai Dolgoruky of the Ukraine calls himself a ‘sun-eater’. He has been practicing sun gazing for the past 12 years and has largely subsisted off solar energy since he began. Others have reported losing the need for food after only 9 months of sun gazing (by which time the practitioner has worked up to a maximum of 44 minutes). After 9 months of practice, you need only walk barefoot on the earth for 45 minutes per day, 6 days in a row to further the process of what has been initiated by sun gazing.

Sun-gazing is a practice also called the HRM phenomenom, coined as such after Hira Ratan Manek, the man who submitted himself to NASA for scientific testing to confirm that he does indeed possess the almost ‘super-human’ ability of not eating, gained through his dedication to this interesting marvel. Funded by NASA, a team of medical doctors at the University of Pennsylvania observed Hira 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 100 days. NASA confirmed that he was indeed able to survive largely on light with occasionally a small amount of buttermilk or water during this time.

WHAT HAPPENS TO THE BODY DURING SUN GAZING?

During your first 3 months of practice, the suns energy is moving through the eyes and charging the hypothalamus tract, says those who have studied this technique and used it. The hypothalamus tract is the pathway to the rear of the retina which leads to the brain. The brain then, over time, becomes activated by the energy supply being received by the sun.

You will first experience a relief of mental tension and worry, since most worry is fueled by the energy received by the foods we eat. Since food gets it’s energy from the sun, it is said to be readily available to sun-eaters without the trouble of digestion. Though hunger is said to eventually cease, it is fine to continue eating regularly during initial stages, until appetite disappears naturally.

Another benefit early on is said to be an increase in confidence and an ability to easily solve your problems, as you are without tension. Everyone has at least a bit of psychosis, but during the first few months of sun gazing practice, it is reported that these attitudes go away and a positive nature gracefully replaces the old persona full of fears. By the end of 3 months, the gazing time will have increased to 15 minutes per day.

Reports on sun gazing say that the bad qualities normally associated with any person will gradually disappear and good qualities will remain, explaining that ‘bad qualities’ only develop in the absence of sunlight. Bad qualities like anger, fear, jealousy, lust – are said to disappear – and be replaced by a certain confidence and ‘spiritual knowing’ that senses more purely the heart of an issue.

At 3-6 months of gazing, the studies show that physical diseases start to disappear. They say that by the time one is gazing 30 minutes per day (building up 10 seconds per day) all the colors of the sun will have reached the brain. Color therapists attribute their healing of certain diseases to flooding the body and brain with the particular color that is lacking – depending on the ailment.

For example, in liver disease, the color green is deficient. The kidneys need red, and the heart, yellow. All of the organs and all of the systems are said to respond to different colors of the rainbow, which is why it is also recommended to eat a diet rich in a variety of colors. It is recommended during the 3-4 month period that you use autosuggestion to see your body already healed of any perceived weakness or disease. This action will facilitate the process of returning to wholeness.

As you continue the process, it is reported that after 6 months, the energy stored from the technique is no longer being used for repairing the body or the mind and can move now into supporting you in gaining more super-human abilities.

WHAT’S BEYOND HEALING?

By seven and a half months of gazing, now at 35 minutes, need and desire for food is dwindling. According to sun gazing experts, food is not actually needed to maintain the body, only energy – and ‘sun-eating’ provides that energy. By 9 months, all taste for food, including aroma, all hunger pains and cravings disappear.

Those who make it this far say that they report a noticeable ‘change’ in the way their brain feels – like it’s “charged up.” After 9 months of sun-gazing – reaching a maximum of 44 minutes – it is advised that you give up sun-gazing and redirect your attention now to the Earth.

For 6 days straight, one is to walk barefoot on the earth, 45 minutes per day. During this barefoot walking, the pineal gland is said to become activated. Professional sun gazers and those researching the science say that each toe is connected to a specific gland, and by walking barefoot on the Earth, you activate these glands.

The big toe is thought to be aligned with the pineal gland, the second toe with the pituitary, then the hypothalamus, thalamus and finally the pinky toe correlates to the amygdala. Walking barefoot, with the sun now falling on the top of your head, practitioners claim to create a sort of magnetic field in and around your body that recharges you and your brain.

Apparently this walking barefoot part is the most important aspect of the practice. As you continue walking on the Earth, this is when the magic really begins. The pineal gland is activated more and more by this walking procedure. Intellect is said to increase, along with memory. The pineal gland has navigational and psychic capabilities, meaning telepathy, the possibility of flight… now we are getting somewhere! Have you ever thought you would like to have your body in more than one place at a time? Well, sun-gazing is said to be the magical key to such abilities.

If you can barefoot walk 45 minutes every day for a year – you are golden. At that point, only a maintenance of 3-4 days a week is necessary to maintain the capabilities you have acquired.

ARE THERE ANY DANGERS?

Doctors and eye care professionals caution against looking directly at the sun, saying that it will damage the retina. However, if done correctly, sun-gazing at the correct times of day, studies show there is no risk of damaging the eyes. Those who have been sun gazing for many years have had their eyes checked to show no damage, though it is advised that you have your eyes checked in the first few weeks of your practice, so you can know for yourself.

Remember, it’s 10 seconds the first day, at sunrise or sunset, adding 10 seconds per day each day there after. After 90 days of accumulative gazing equaling 44 minutes, you cease the gazing and start the barefoot walking 45 minutes per day for 6 days. At this point, I could imagine, hey – if you made it this far, what’s a year of barefoot walking an hour per day to keep it all? You will have to try it out and see for yourself.

If you are really interested in gaining super-human abilities, confirmed by reputable organizations like NASA, as the ones mentioned above, sun gazing sounds like a fairly straightforward path to enlightenment !
