O vídeo com link baixo, nos seus 6;oo minutos menciona o livro do físico  Schrodinger( o do Schrodinger cat),  “What’s Life” escrito nos anos 1940, e explica como ele influenciou os biólogos que na época era a Biologia considerada uma ciência de segunda classe. Muitos dos biólogos que seguiram escrevendo sobre teorias da vida nos anos sequentes vieram também com background da Física.

Uma das criticas ao livro foi que o autor expos um problema real, existente, mas nao sugeriu nenhuma solucao. Um estudante disse: ” Yeah, what he said in 1985 had come startlingly true, we had amused ourselves to death . . . so why read it?”

Esta uma vantage que tenho nesta pregacao. Eu aponto uma solucao: o desmascaramento e o conhecimento da Matrix e’ a motivacao para se vencer o vicio do entertenimento banal.

Cérebro: Sensacional Tema para Entender Nosso Cérebro e Grande Oportunidade para a Matrix/DNA Theory

segunda-feira, novembro 11th, 2013

Desde que Teilhard du Chardin escreveu sua tese sobre “uma camada de inconsciente coletivo que paira sobre o planeta Terra” (creio que o nome do livro era ” O Fenômeno Humano”, e Carl Gustav Jung publicou suas teses na mesma linha de pensamento, e desde que encontramos a formula da Matrix/DNA, tenho suspeitado e desenvolvido na medida do possível a tese de que o cérebro é um sistema também estruturado pela formula, mas não apenas o cérebro carnal. Manifestações elétricas na forma de sinapses que se formam e desaparecem a cada novo pensamento, me parecem que estão forçando se fixarem permanentemente e também na forma de sistema, o mesmo sistema da Matrix/DNA. Isto significaria que o que entendemos por mente será mais uma nova forma evolucionaria de um sistema universal que começou com o Big Bang e vem evoluindo. Mas a suspeita não para ai. Os cérebros individuais de 7 bilhões de humanos estão se comunicando a nível mental estruturando uma espécie de mente social, e…. tornando-se um novo sistema nos mesmos moldes da Matrix. Esta mente social seria a camada mental de Chardin, as nourees de outro grande pensador que me esqueço o nome agora, o inconsciente coletivo de Jung, agora se tornando algo inteligível, um sistema perceptível, com uma figura visível. nesta linha de pesquisa me deparo agora com uma volumosa pesquisa de outro autor, por duas décadas estudando os efeitos de suas aplicações de MRI, descrito no artigo com link abaixo, o qual fica aqui copiado para eu pesquisar cada detalhe, ler o livro, etc.

O autor mostra que problemas sociais produzem ativação das mesmas regiões do cérebro que são ativadas quando ocorrem dores físicas. Por exemplo a perda de um ente familiar. Isto para mim é evidência de que a mente individual esta ampliada como mente social e a mente social esta se estruturando no mesmo modelo da mente individual, a qual esta estruturada na configuração do cérebro como sistema operacional, o qual esta estruturado em cima da formula da Matrix/DNA. Então, conhecendo a formula da Matrix, podemos começar a delinear e entender essa camada do inconsciente coletivo, ou mente social. Trechos como este a seguir são verdadeiras joias para a Matrix/DNA:

The neural basis for our personal beliefs overlaps significantly with one of the regions of the brain primarily responsible for allowing other people’s beliefs to influence our own. The self is more of a superhighway for social influence than it is the impenetrable private fortress we believe it to be.

Isto vem afrontar as modernas correntes cientificas baseadas na crença de que a psicologia e comportamentos são causados pela genética e química, que o individual tem a tendência inata para adotar uma religião, uma ideologia, etc., pois isto sugere que o individual nasce limpo como as paginas em branco de um livro e é a cultura social vinda do exterior que preenche estas paginas. na logica da Matrix/DNA, tanto a genética quando a cultura social entram com 50% cada.

The Science of Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect

by

“The self is more of a superhighway for social influence than it is the impenetrable private fortress we believe it to be.”

Pela visão da Matrix/DNA, isto sugere que o ^Eu^ é uma peça na formula de sistemas com seus dois terminais abertos, um se comunicando com a peça anterior e outro com a peça posterior para formar um circuito, e não que o cérebro individual, o ^Eu^,  seja um sistema completo e fechado em si mesmo.

“Without the sense of fellowship with men of like mind,” Einstein wrote, “life would have seemed to me empty.” It is perhaps unsurprising that the iconic physicist, celebrated as “the quintessential modern genius,” intuited something fundamental about the inner workings of the human mind and soul long before science itself had attempted to concretize it with empirical evidence. Now, it has: In Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect (public library), neuroscientist Matthew D. Lieberman, director of UCLA’s Social Cognitive Neuroscience lab, sets out to “get clear about ‘who we are’ as social creatures and to reveal how a more accurate understanding of our social nature can improve our lives and our society. Lieberman, who has spent the past two decades using tools like fMRI to study how the human brain responds to its social context, has found over and over again that our brains aren’t merely simplistic mechanisms that only respond to pain and pleasure, as philosopher Jeremy Bentham famously claimed, but are instead wired to connect. At the heart of his inquiry is a simple question: Why do we feel such intense agony when we lose a loved one? He argues that, far from being a design flaw in our neural architecture, our capacity for such overwhelming grief is a vital feature of our evolutionary constitution:

The research my wife and I have done over the past decade shows that this response, far from being an accident, is actually profoundly important to our survival. Our brains evolved to experience threats to our social connections in much the same way they experience physical pain. By activating the same neural circuitry that causes us to feel physical pain, our experience of social pain helps ensure the survival of our children by helping to keep them close to their parents. The neural link between social and physical pain also ensures that staying socially connected will be a lifelong need, like food and warmth. Given the fact that our brains treat social and physical pain similarly, should we as a society treat social pain differently than we do? We don’t expect someone with a broken leg to “just get over it.” And yet when it comes to the pain of social loss, this is a common response. The research that I and others have done using fMRI shows that how we experience social pain is at odds with our perception of ourselves. We intuitively believe social and physical pain are radically different kinds of experiences, yet the way our brains treat them suggests that they are more similar than we imagine.

Citing his research, Lieberman affirms the notion that there is no such thing as a nonconformist, pointing out the social construction of what we call our individual “selves” — empirical evidence for what the novelist William Gibson so eloquently termed one’s “personal micro-culture” — and observes “our socially malleable sense of self”:

The neural basis for our personal beliefs overlaps significantly with one of the regions of the brain primarily responsible for allowing other people’s beliefs to influence our own. The self is more of a superhighway for social influence than it is the impenetrable private fortress we believe it to be.

Contextualizing it in a brief evolutionary history, he argues that this osmosis of sociality and individuality is an essential aid in our evolutionary development rather than an aberrant defect in it:

Our sociality is woven into a series of bets that evolution has laid down again and again throughout mammalian history. These bets come in the form of adaptations that are selected because they promote survival and reproduction. These adaptations intensify the bonds we feel with those around us and increase our capacity to predict what is going on in the minds of others so that we can better coordinate and cooperate with them. The pain of social loss and the ways that an audience’s laughter can influence us are no accidents. To the extent that we can characterize evolution as designing our modern brains, this is what our brains were wired for: reaching out to and interacting with others. These are design features, not flaws. These social adaptations are central to making us the most successful species on earth.

 

The implications of this span across everything from the intimacy of our personal relationships to the intricacy of organizational management and teamwork. But rather than entrusting a single cognitive “social network” with these vital functions, our brains turn out to host many. Lieberman explains:

Just as there are multiple social networks on the Internet such as Facebook and Twitter, each with its own strengths, there are also multiple social networks in our brains, sets of brain regions that work together to promote our social well-being.

These networks each have their own strengths, and they have emerged at different points in our evolutionary history moving from vertebrates to mammals to primates to us, Homo sapiens. Additionally, these same evolutionary steps are recapitulated in the same order during childhood.

He goes on to explore three major adaptations that have made us so inextricably responsive to the social world:

  • Connection: Long before there were any primates with a neocortex, mammals split off from other vertebrates and evolved the capacity to feel social pains and pleasures, forever linking our well-being to our social connectedness. Infants embody this deep need to stay connected, but it is present through our entire lives.
  • Mindreading: Primates have developed an unparalleled ability to understand the actions and thoughts of those around them, enhancing their ability to stay connected and interact strategically. In the toddler years, forms of social thinking develop that outstrip those seen in the adults of any other species. This capacity allows humans to create groups that can implement nearly any idea and to anticipate the needs and wants of those around us, keeping our groups moving smoothly.
  • Harmonizing: The sense of self is one of the most recent evolutionary gifts we have received. Although the self may appear to be a mechanism for distinguishing us from others and perhaps accentuating our selfishness, the self actually operates as a powerful force for social cohesiveness. During the preteen and teenage years, adolescent refers to the neural adaptations that allow group beliefs and values to influence our own

The rest of Social: Why Our Brains Are Wired to Connect, which dives deeper into this trifecta of adaptations and their everyday implications, is absolutely fascinating — necessary, even. Get a teaser-taste with Liberman’s TEDxStLouis talk based on his research and the resulting book:

Is consciousness an epiphenomenal happenstance of this particular universe? Or does the very concept of a universe depend upon its presence? Does consciousness merely perceive reality, or does reality depend upon it? Did consciousness simply emerge as an effect of evolution? Or was it, in some sense, always “out there” in the world? These questions and more, are addressed in this special edition.

Physics and fractal structures

Fractals tambem estudado como processos repetitivos e nao apenas matematicamnte como formas geometricas repititivas. Interessante porque a Matrix parece um fractal vivo.

Jean-François Gouyet

Springer Verlag Gmbh, 1996 – Mathematics – 234 pages
The structures of physics, in general, are studied by using simplified geometry on objects that are actually irregular and highly complex. The complex morphology and dynamics of many phenomena are lost when this is done. Benoīt B. Mandelbrot, author of the preface, has spent 20 years studying the phenomena required to model these structures in all their dimensions. These structures are called fractals, and are characterized by their invariance of scale: each figure is composed of figures which are virtually identical and which are in turn composed of virtually identical figures, and so on indefinitely. Fractals are the result of 70 years of research in many fields; what they reveal has pertinence to physics of materials, mechanics of fluids, functional anatomy, plant morphology, geomorphology, astrophysics, and other disciplines. This book highlights the structures of fractals in related disciplines: turbulence, chaos, fracture, percolation, diffusion fronts, aggregation, phase transitions, particle trajectories. The author describes in detail the dynamic aspects of transport phenomena in the field of fractals. Intended for students of physics and chemistry in their second or third year, this book is also addressed to researchers and engineers interested in the trends of contemporary physics as they relate to real applications. An extensive bibliography directs the reader to additional material on specific topics.

Opinião deste Autor:
Não é o tema do brilhante artigo abaixo relacionado com o comportamento do governo americano que me interessa apenas, mas sim o comportamento da inteira Humanidade e quica, desta biosfera terrestre. Por isso intervenho no website daquele autor postando o comentario que podes ver abaixo. Ninguem pode negar que estamos dentro de uma maquina natural que funciona perfeita. Nos existimos na superficie de um planeta que esta orbitando em torno de uma estrela, a qual esta orbitando em torno do nucleo desta galaxia, e ela funciona como um relógio perfeito. Enquanto ninguem mostrar alguma outra coisa existente alem desta galaxia que teria estado aqui criando a Vida, e através dela, nos criando, o nosso criador só pode ser a galaxia, uma maquina funcional. Tanto é uma maquina automatica que a melhor descrição humana para ela ainda é a da mecânica Newtoniana.
Essa maquina fez a biosfera, e nela, o DNA. Portanto ela nos rodeia por todos os lados e ao mesmo tempo esta dentro de nos, dentro do nosso centro diretor. Ninguem pode negar que essa maquina dentro de nos é nossa herança, nossa carga genética. E essa maquina por trás da biosfera inteira nos impõe um comportamento que coincide com o comportamento que nos dirige desde dentro, portanto o exterior controla para que o interior não saia fora do seu modelo. Isto tudo é a Matrix. Uma Matrix que nada tem de virtual, supernatural, e parece não ter proposito outro que não seja sua eterna existencia.  A Matrix é puramente natural, é a Natureza em si mesma.
A Matrix tem tido longa existencia ( ja conta 13,7 bilhões de anos), portanto nos parece eterna, mas ela muda de formas, e para tal, ela morre temporariamente com a certeza de que ira ser reciclada ressuscitando. Sua morte é produzida pelo processo da entropia que existe a nivel universal, alem dela, pois ela não consegue evita-la. A entropia a faz fragmentar-se em seus menores fragmentos, que são seus bit-informação, poe-nos a girar caoticamente dentro de vortices, mas dos quais sempre emerge um principio de ordem que restabelece a configuração da maquina perfeita. A nossa biosfera foi assim construida sob o estado de caos, produzindo essa biosfera selvagem e tempestiva, a 3,5 bilhões de anos, mas todos os elementos dessa biosfera vão lentamente se acomodando pela forca do processo da ordem. Nos humanos somos um destes elementos, seremos por forca invencível da Natureza, mais uma peca da maquina que vai finalmente se instalar aqui. Portanto, nenhuma surpresa que governantes dirigem seus sistemas sociais para esse destino de maquina, e nenhuma surpresa de que nos mantemo-nos submissos a esse destino, inconscientemente. No artigo abaixo o autor pinta o governo como se fosse o demonio, o unico demonio, mas o governo e composto por humanos, e todos os humanos são dirigidos inconscientemente para esse destino. As pessoas dos governos nao sabem o que fazem, ou seja, construindo sua propria futura prisão, para si e seus filhos. Para condicionar o cerebro humano a maquina tem usado os proprios humanos para erigirem uma forca irresistivel denominada “cultura”. Todos os simbolos da cultura, seus sons de linguagem, são virtuais, uma representação irreal da realidade para iludir nossa psicologia que metida a refletir o seu estado no mundo. Isso é perigosos para a maquina, mas a cultura e a sua ferramenta que anula essa ameaça.
Mas a galaxia não é o Universo e sendo menor que este, pressupõe-se que aquele seja mais poderoso. Pela logica, o Universo deve ser a mesma maquina, apenas uma sua forma primitiva, mais antiga. Mas o Universo sera o limite ultimo? Ou haverá algo mais alem dele que tambem tem influencia sobre as existencias aqui dentro? As evidencias estão sugerindo que sim, que existe algo alem da galaxia que nao ev uma maquina e esta atuando, ou tentando se manter e atuar aqui, para nos levar a um destino diferente. Essas evidencias são – o fato de que a galaxia certamente ev estupida e não consciente, portanto sua genetica nao teria sido capaz de produzir aqui dentro dela a auto-conciencia que emerge dos cerebros humanos. A substancia e genetica dessa auto-consciencia deve estar vindo de alguma fonte alem e independente desta galaxia, e no caso, ate deste universo. O fato de que esta auto-conciencia conseguiu descobrir e desmascarar a Matrix indica que temos dentro de nos uma forca que pode nos salvar do terrivel destino de zumbis-pecas do  modelo de maquina que o nossos ancestrais não conscientes tentam ainda impor a nos simplesmente deixando sua carga genetica atuar.
O resultado final jamais imaginado antes em que cai com essa minha mania de investigador naturalista foi esse. Eu vi a imagem, a cara da Matrix. Talvez foi uma ilusão de óptica como as comuns que atacam torturados no deserto e nas selvas brutas. Mas para mim tudo faz muito sentido racional, penso que a ameaça existe, penso que a oportunidade de eliminar a ameaça tambem existe, e como não tenho mais nada em que investir minha vida, assumo como minha missão ficar repetindo isso para quem eu puder fazer ouvir.  Se estiver tudo errado, não causarei prejuízo algum a Humanidade, tudo sera rapidamente esquecido, mas se tiver certo, apenas a menção dessa Matrix sera a semente que facilitara o trabalho daquela fonte alem deste mundo – se é que ela existe.
Uma das formas de eu gritar apontando a cara da Matrix e chamar a atenção das pessoas para notarem-na, sera sempre tentando desmascarar os simbolos da cultura. Por exemplo, a palavra “lucro” é um simbolo da cultura que nos cega para o fenômeno de que sempre que obtemos algo que nao produzimos com nossas maos, esse algo foi produzido pelo suor e calejamento das mãos de outro ser humano. Então quando alguem diz que teve um lucro eu entro imediatamente dizendo que não, que ele acabou de praticar mais um ato predador. E assim que se vai desmascarando e dilapidando essa arma da Matrix.
O artigo abaixo tem interessantes insights sobre este tema, por isso o copio aqui para analisar isto depois com mais tempo. Mas antes veja meu comentario postado:
TheMatrixDNA – Less Than A Minute Ago

“… virtual slavery—a lifelong hibernation state—imposed by hyper-advanced artificial intelligence machines…”

I can’t understand why you are not seeing the obvious. We, humans, are under slavery, you are seeing it. The system is going towards to be a functional automatic machine, you are still seeing it. We, humans all life forms in this planete were created by a machine, described by Newtonian mechanics. You are forgetting to see it. There is a machine inside us and surrounding us, modelling us from inside and modeling us from outside. Driving us and the whole biosphere towards to be a reproduction of that machine, with new materials, new states of matter, as the liquid state. There is “the machine” ” the Matrix” , but it not virtual, not supernatural and neither intelligent. It’s all about Nature, the free course and flow of natural forces. The Brave New World under the political control of the Orwellian Big Mother – like any bees and ants colonies – but under the rules of the celestial machine, is irreversible, inevitable.

You need see it, and quick. The very fact that here there is something different from all properties saw in that natural machine, and that this “something different” can see the Matrix, is indicative that we have an opportunity for a freedom future. At human brains has emerged this thing called consciousness, productor of intelligence, hidden from the Matrix’s knowledge, we need exercising this property, we need a great calling for everybody to know that, at least in theory, there is an evil behind government, behind us, inside us, surrounding us, and if we do not be vigilant, we can make the story telling of the Bible, about Adam falling under the traps of the serpent, be real just now and here. And Newton will write the same history with his technical and scientific words. Go to my website to see the black face of the Universal Matrix/DNA, pictured as formula like a computer diagram of genetics software, see the shape of the serpent swallowing its own tail, see the tree, the fake paradise, the apple, and how happened the fall that crested this chaotic biosphere from where abiogenesis lifted up a flow of order, towards the reproduction of this celestial and natural machine. Do not focus on governments, they are victims, like we are.

 The Land of the Blind: The Illusion of Freedom in America

“How far does a man have to go to be thought so dangerous that he needs to be locked away, physically separated from the rest of the world, behind stone walls and iron bars? Clearly, it is a last resort.”—Joe,Land of the Blind

In the Wachowskis’ iconic 1999 film,The Matrix, the protagonist Neo is wakened from a lifelong slumber by Morpheus, a freedom fighter seeking to liberate humans from virtual slavery—a lifelong hibernation state—imposed by hyper-advanced artificial intelligence machines. With their minds plugged into a perfectly crafted virtual reality, few humans ever realize they are living in a dream world to such an extent that most are willing to give their lives in order to preserve the system that enslaves them.

Sound familiar? It should, because as I make clear in my new book, A Government of Wolves: The Emerging American Police State (available on Amazon.com and in stores), we too are living in a fantasy world carefully crafted to resemble a representative democracy, while in reality we are little more than slaves in thrall to an authoritarian regime, with its constant surveillance, manufactured media spectacles, secret courts, inverted justice, and violent repression of dissent. And for the few who dare to challenge the status quo such as Edward Snowden, they are assured of being branded either as conspiratorialists, alarmists, lunatics or outright traitors.

Consider how quickly the government’s attack dogs went from defending the NSA’s warrantless mass surveillance of Americans’ phone calls to targeting and punishing any and all parties involved in the “leak” of sensitive information, including labeling Snowden a traitor, charging him with espionage and warning foreign governments against giving him refuge. Adding to the surreal drama, President Obama has begun preaching about the need for Americans to “trust” their government, insisting that the NSA’s surveillance is perfectly legal with no acknowledgment of the fact that the information leaked by Snowden shed much-needed light on government corruption, illicit programs and treachery on the part of our so-called representatives.

So well-oiled and interconnected are the cogs, wheels and gear shifts in our government machinery that it can be near to impossible to decipher where the fault lies when something goes awry. What some are slowly coming to realize, however, is that the mechanism itself has changed. Its purpose is no longer to keep our republic running smoothly. To the contrary, this particular contraption’s purpose is to keep the corporate police state in power. Thus, when hiccups, belches, whinges and jams arise, they are not being caused by the mechanism itself becoming faulty—its various parts are already a corrupt part of the whole. Rather, that’s the sound of someone jamming the mechanism and interrupting the smooth flow of the corporate state.

Just consider how insidious and incestuous the various “parts” of the mechanism have become.

Congress.Perhaps the most notorious offenders and most obvious culprits in the creation of the corporate-state, Congress has proven itself to be both inept and avaricious, oblivious champions of an authoritarian system that is systematically dismantling their constituents’ fundamental rights. Congress’ most grievous behavior, however, is its failure to bring the president to task, who for all intents and purposes now operates above the law. The precedent set during the Bush administration of Congressmen going along with senseless and illegal White House policies has turned the office of the president into an untouchable, unstoppable force.

The President.Despite having ridden into office on a wave of optimism and the promise of a new America free of civil liberties abuses, President Obama has proven to be a more effective manipulator of the American people than his predecessors. His presidency has been defined by “kill lists,” the murder of civilians in secret drone strikes, the assassination of American citizens, the continued operation of Guantanamo Bay, the championing of warrantless surveillance of American citizens, and most recently, the funneling of arms to al-Qaeda backed rebels in Syria.

The Supreme Court.The U.S. Supreme Court—once the last refuge of justice, the one governmental body really capable of rolling back the slowly emerging tyranny enveloping America—has instead become the champion of the American police state, absolving government and corporate officials of their crimes while relentlessly punishing the average American for exercising his or her rights. Consider that in the past month alone, the justices have determined that criminal suspects, who are supposed to be treated as innocent until proven guilty, may have their DNA forcibly extracted from them by police. They have decided that staying silent while the police question you may be considered evidence of guilt, despite the Fifth Amendment’s protection against self-incrimination and the well-established “right to remain silent.” Finally, the Court has decided that it operates in a zone in which First Amendment protections cease to exist, as they have unilaterally barred protests outside the Supreme Court building, countering a federal court decision that determined that activities on the Supreme Court grounds are protected by the First Amendment. These are just three examples of a Court that, like the rest of the government, places profit, security, and convenience above our basic rights.

The Media.Of course, this triumvirate of total control would be completely ineffective without a propaganda machine provided by the world’s largest corporations. Besides shoving drivel down our throats at every possible moment, the so-called news agencies which are supposed to act as bulwarks against government propaganda have instead become the mouthpieces of the state. One need only look at the media’s behavior post-9/11 to understand what I mean. From championing the invasion of Iraq based upon absolute fabrications, to the fanatic support of all surveillance state policies and the demonization of whistle blowers like Edward Snowden and Bradley Manning, the pundits which pollute our airwaves are at best court jesters and at worst propagandists for the false reality created by the American government.

The American People.Of course, the most superior engine in the world still requires some form of energy to bring it to life and maintain it, and in this particular mechanism, “we the people” serve that vital function. We are the petrol that powers the motor, for good or bad. We now belong to a permanent underclass in America. It doesn’t matter what you call us—chattel, slaves, worker bees, drones, it’s all the same—what matters is that we are expected to march in lockstep with and submit to the will of the state in all matters, public and private.

Through our complicity in matters large and small, we have allowed an out-of-control corporate-state apparatus to take over every element of American society. Our failure to remain informed about what is taking place in our government, to know and exercise our rights, to vocally protest, to demand accountability on the part of our government representatives, and at a minimumto careabout the plight of our fellow Americans has been our downfall. Having allowed ourselves to descend into darkness, refusing to see what is really happening, happily trading the truth for false promises of security and freedom, we have allowed the police state to emerge and to flourish.

Having started withThe Matrix,allow me to conclude with a woefully overlooked film,Land of the Blind(2006), a dark political satire in which tyrannical rulers are overthrown by new leaders who prove to be just as bad, if not worse. In the film, citizens perceived as questioning the state are sent to “re-education camps” where the state’s concept of reality is drummed into their heads. Joe, a prison guard, is so impressed with a political prisoner Thorne that he eventually joins a coup to unseat the present dictator and replace him with Thorne. Before long, however, Joe becomes the target of the new government and comes to realize that the old boss is the same as the new boss.

In an age of governmental doublespeak, media obfuscation, and insidious subterfuge on all sides, it can at times be hard to know who is working for whom, and which side the “good guys,” if there are any, are really on. When in doubt, just remember what Orwell had to say about the matter inAnimal Farm: “Four legs good, two legs bad.”

Driving us and the whole biosphere towards to be a reproduction of that machine, with new materials, new states of matter, as the liquid state. There is “the machine” ” the Matrix” , but it not virtual, not supernatural and neither intelligent. It’s all about Nature, the free course and flow of natural forces. The Brave New World under the political control of the Orwellian Big Mother – like any bees and ants colonies – but under the rules of the celestial machine, is irreversible, inevitable.

You need see it, and quick. The very fact that here there is something different from all properties saw in that natural machine, and that this “something different” can see the Matrix, is indicative that we have an opportunity for a freedom future. At human brains has emerged this thing called consciousness, productor of intelligence, hidden from the Matrix’s knowledge, we need exercising this property, we need a great calling for everybody to know that, at least in theory, there is an evil behind government, behind us, inside us, surrounding us, and if we do not be vigilant, we can make the story telling of the Bible, about Adam falling under the traps of the serpent, be real just now and here. And Newton will write the same history with his technical and scientific words. Go to my website to see the black face of the Universal Matrix/DNA, pictured as formula like a computer diagram of genetics software, see the shape of the serpent swallowing its own tail, see the tree, the fake paradise, the apple, and how happened the fall that crested this chaotic biosphere from where abiogenesis lifted up a flow of order, towards the reproduction of this celestial and natural machine. Do not focus on governments, they are victims, like we are.
