TIDBIT: THIS WEEK’S HONORABLE MENTIONS

Last week there was no "honorable mentions" list of articles, and someone emailed me and asked where they were. Well, it's a good question and I thought I'd try to answer it before listing some of the other articles that came close to the finals blogs list this week, articles that were shared by a lot of people. The problem this last week was, as I said, the overwhelming amount of articles on the theme of money.  Anyway, the reasons for last week's lack of an honorable mentions are manifold: (1) the "honorable mentions" is not meant to be a regular feature, merely a feature that when I do get articles on topics that are not blogged about, but which came close to being blogged about, I mention them in an "honorable" mention; and (2) If I have the time to compile an honorable mentions list I do so. Last week it was a bit of both: there were not enough articles on various topics to gather together, and I was far behind schedule-wise to do so anyway, as I'm burning the candle at both ends trying to get a book done.

But this week there are some honorable mentions, in some cases a few people sent articles, and in some, just one or two people (and as usual I'll try to mention them). Again, thanks to everyone who spot and send articles:

Ms. M.W. spotted these two articles:

Human Mind Control of Rat Cyborg’s Continuous Locomotion with Wireless Brain-to-Brain Interface

U.S. Chamber of Commerce Unleashes USMCA Coalition for North American Integration

Mr. N. spotted this article about a suppsoed Nazi u-boat in Antarctica (and I'm skeptical, if for no other reason than the "u-boat" does not look like the majority of boats in service with the German navy, except perhaps the Type 21):

Mr. T.M. spotted this update about the gold mergers:

Barrick CEO Vows to Press On With Bid for Newmont After Rebuff

And Ms. K.M. spotted this on giving infrared vision to mice:

Incredible Experiment Gives Infrared Vision to Mice—and Humans Could Be Next

  1. As we embrace our flaws; the transhumanists judge that human behavior as nostalgia[a dangerous romantic interpretation of misinterpreting our savage past as a purer state of being.

    [the computer is disrupting my crap game by picking up the dice/can’t take my eyes of the keyboard and/or screen w/o countless errors]

    Embracing nature & biology as mysteries is verboden; transhumanist see them as limits to transcend. They want to close the gap between man & machine.
    It’s apropos that this concept then, transcends to the eye of the beholder. For, you see the screen is encroaching on the eye; from the 1950’s TV screen to the computer monitors to the phone interfaces to VR to tiny LEDs that project images onto the retina to neural implants that communicate directly to the optic nerve to injecting nanoparticles for seeing augmented realities.
    W/ each augmented step, our resolution increases?, our utility value is improved along some hidden measurable metric? The mindset that counts steps?, counts heartbeats?; all under the pretense of life extension?
    Are transhumanists just numbers, a quantified self?

    1. As this “science” pans out onto the commercial block[or is that the commercialized smartphone ap?]; in this corporatize capitalism so-called market place, look-out! for those puppet-strings that come attached, like user agreements. Oh what a world it could be. Of course, you’ll need some heavy-duty insights to avoid those deep pit falls.
      Fortunately, they’re on sale now; but you must act fast!

  2. FTR, I immediately had great respect for Ms. K.M. (also known as Kelly Em on chat) and, over the years, she and I have connected by phone and email many times. For which I feel honored. Because she is GENIUS-level intellect with a great eye for analysis. I believe this is why JPF also values her input.

    That said, any article submitted by “Ms. K.M.” has got my attention. She passes my “BS/sniff test.” Just sayin’…

    S ^i^

  3. Bet on it: injecting infrared-sensitive nanoparticles into human eyes is ‘old’ technology for the breakaway state. I am wondering why release-to-the-public is occurring now… (Note that this research is technological, not genetic. It does not filter into future generations.)

    I remember reading in an old Scientific American that mammals have four distinct light-sensing ‘systems’. Deer have one that humans do not have, for example. It turns out that humans ‘lost’ two of these systems along our evolutionary pathway. (Unless Enki ‘deleted’ them, for his own purposes.) As a partial-compensation, one of the two remaining systems evolved to fill-in the gaps. So, present-day humans have kind of a two-and-a-half light-sensing ‘system’.

    Where breakaway-state genetic research is probably heading is in the restoring of the full ‘four system’ capability in humans…

  4. Human min control of a rat cyborg.
    It now looks like The Borg a more highly evolved species.

    The Transnational Corporatist, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, is finally getting rid of that pesky nation state it gets it name from, the U.S. Yes, it wants to incorporate it into the blob; er., Canada, Mexico, U.S.
    The story board being developed between the ruling classes of a three along w/their respective machineries of State and their news medias. Karl Marx would have loved it[pure propaganda/The German Ideology].

    The German U-Boat in Antarctica reveals
    black/white 1951 circle in THE THING.

    Barrick’s bid is still in the
    counting dead bodies phase of negotiations.

    Instead on relying on wearable tech;
    just embed it, or inject the nanosh*t.

    1. By the way, how long until that high-end, top-of-the-line chip they implanted into my brain; and those subsequent neurons, whose growth flourished around it – are obsolete?

      What’s the market telling to do?
      Better pull up that ap and “see” what I should do.

  5. SLINGSHOT AHEAD 3

    When Christ was broken in despair, 
    he rose, shattered everywhere, 
    into shiny fragments 
    of entanglement, 
    fulfilling star spangled air.
