    He says with agreement of Medina: Right and Wrong is an illusion...

    Ok, I think this is a contradiction...From a biblical perspective right and wrong is reduced to a finite point..., (my interpretation) Murder is no greater crime than rudeness...BUT, there is a right and wrong. Negative energy vs positive energy. Anyone engaging in negative thinking is doing wrong. So, that begs the question...how can I hold Trump in contempt without doing wrong? I can't, but you see I'm no saint... These guys are living on energy, how can they agree that there is no right and wrong?

    So, I propose we let it go...I am blocking the Trumpster from my consciousness...he does have a positive role in our consciousness...he exposes the dark side for us to see and therefore raises our awareness...but he will get no help from me. Obama is on the same scale of consciousness raising. He is a dark figure representing the light for those whose antennae are tuned in.

    Ego is why none of this makes any sense...only the core has validity...interpretations are all guess work.

    At least a simulated Alien Invasion would be exciting for awhile.

    the source created the matrix, duh!

    His usage of the word 'magic' is pretty magical...A bridge between DNA and the cosmic structure? He has just solved one of the great human conundrums...

    e.g. What is the nature of the connection between bacterial growth and radioactive decay?
    What is the nature of the strange attractor that resolves order out of chaos?

    According to Joshua, human energy bridges, of course... Which to give him credit is a polite euphemism for 'that is a dumb forking question, who the hell knows the answer to that'

    Boyan Slat is back. He has been busy with his project removing plastics from the ocean. He's also cleaning up rivers. Just a few are the source of large amounts of the plastic which ends up in the oceans.

    I posted a video by David Pakman where he lays out the different forms of socialism and which ones have worked. He has a segment on his show called Hatriot Mail where he has a voice dramatically read some of the hate mail he gets, which seems to almost always come from the right.

    David is from Argentina, he's jewish (which often comes up with callers) and english is not his native language, although it sounds native.

    Right off the bat they discuss the dangers of 'ad hominem'.

    They discuss troubles with youtube.

    At 51 minutes David lays out the distinction between liberal/progressive folks who work in tech and the corporations themselves which are part of a very different dynamic when it comes to taxation.

    Amen to that DT...I'm working for Hewlett-Packard Inc. right now. New CEO, brand new psychopath, layoffs all around me...

    When I was contacted about this job, I told the recruiter that I didn't want to work for them...his advice was, 'what the hell'. So I went through the process and was eventually hired, after a series of the 'usual really weird sh*t'. Turns out it is a pleasant environment because most of the people that I work with aren't 'engineer' types. It is an atypical tech environment as most of my co-workers have a background and interest in the liberal arts. I work with people from Japan, Vietnam, Mexico, and my immediate supervisor has a undergrad degree in the Russian language and anthropology.

    I don't know how long I will be there though... ... bottom line, life sucks...holidays have always been the time of year that I can't wait to get past.

    And I always get a good laugh when I tell them about my alien implants

    1:32 David defines and discusses stochastic terrorism.

    It should be very familiar. We have a leader who uses it on a regular basis.

    At 1:45:30 Joe talks about acronyms. He points out an acronym that used to refer to colored people, at term that you can't use now. He insists that it still stands for that.

    He would do well to remember that that sort of thing happens all the time. My husband works with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities. They used to be called mentally retarded. Many agencies have acronyms with the letters M and R with that origin.

    They no longer use the spelled out name. The name is only the acronym, and the agency no longer has the spelled out origin in any of it's papers or business.

    This is how things change and this has been happening throughout the century.

    In recent times we call it re-branding.

    Here's a recap of the last decade rather than the last year. It's pretty funny, showcases themes and recurrences.

    Finishes off with Alex Jones.
