    Well, look at it this way: it would be the greatest human accomplishment of the century so far if we were to gather all of the bankers, the politicians and the other one-percenters, and send them off to Mars. Just think of it. It would be brilliant, because...:

    • There would be a human exploration crew on Mars, who would be relaying scientific information about the planet to the population of Earth, and who would be capable of terraforming Mars (to a limited extent).

    • For the first time ever, the aforementioned specimens of the human species would discover for themselves what it means to have to fight for one's survival, and that one's chances are at their best if one collaborates with others, as opposed to exploiting them and waging war on one another. So we would actually be doing them a favor by stimulating their intellectual and spiritual development.

    • The average IQ of the Martian population would go up by about 80 points. And so would the average IQ of the population of Earth.

    • It's a one-way trip. They won't be able to come back. (We'd have to have a word with Elon Musk first to make sure of that, of course. )


    Brilliant idea, not?

    Humans, their labor and creativity, are the only true value. Money only purchases that true value.
    Perhaps money is a favored tool of the AI. It's one of the easiest ways to control us.

    Indonesia's Mount Barujari Volcano Erupts, Trapping Tourists

    More than 200 foreign tourists were feared trapped on an Indonesian volcano Wednesday after the peak erupted and sent a plume of ash 6,500 feet in the air, officials said.

    More than 1,000 people were evacuated after Mount Barujari erupted just before 3 p.m. Tuesday (3 a.m. ET), officials said.

    Rescuers initially were looking for at least 389 tourists — 333 of them foreigners — who had registered to climb the mountain since Sunday, according to a statement by the country's National Disaster Management Authority issued late Tuesday.

    Around 120 of these hikers, most of them foreigners, were subsequently located and were heading down the mountain Wednesday, local search-and-rescue official Heronimus Guru told The Associated Press.

    There have been no injuries reported so far — but more than 250 people remained unaccounted for.

    Indonesian officials haven't released details about the nationalities of those missing. The U.S. Embassy in Jakarta said it didn't know whether any of the them were American nationals.

    Mount Barujari is a "baby volcano" that sits inside the crater of Mount Rinjani, a 12,224-foot-high volcano on Lombok island.

    Walter Bosley | Breakaway Civilizations & The Senora Aero Club

    TheHighersideChats

    Join the Higherside Chats podcast as Greg Carlwood hosts returning guest, Walter Bosley.

    Bosley has upped the ante with his research into a group of Hermetic Prussian Nationalist called NYMZA, artist Charles Dellschau, and a secret society of exotic craft makers in California called the Sonora Aero Club. It's a deep and rich Pandora's box of conspiracy goodness that connects some dots and fills in many gaps- taking the popular idea of a 20th century breakaway civilization and extending the timeline back to it's 19th century beginnings and beyond.
