Gorilla War

In Joe Haldeman’s novel The Forever War, Earth finds itself at war with an alien race called the Taurans. A force of interstellar troops is created to prosecute the war, whose battle grounds are thousands of light years from Earth. Due to the time dilation effects of interstellar travel, however, the lead protagonist, William Mandella, and his fellow soldier and lover, Marygay Potter, find themselves increasingly estranged from the human society they are fighting for. Each time they return from a mission they find that Earth has changed beyond recognition, so much so that they volunteer for new missions simply to escape the sense of alienation. When they return from their final assignment they discover that the battle they fought was part of a war that ended centuries ago. Not only that, they’re finally told the truth: that the war was the result of a misunderstanding between the two races, one that was seized upon by war profiteers with a vested interest in perpetuating the conflict. Their suffering and pain had been for nothing.

The gorilla war: ancestors battle for system resources in the Primate Simulation called ‘reality.

The guerilla war: ancestors battle for system resources in the Primate Simulation called ‘reality.

Haldeman’s novel is based on his experiences in Vietnam. That war ended, only for another to begin. Have we ever known peace? Today we are engaged in an in-formation war. The weapon of choice is the computer, a device created during war for the purposes of prosecuting war. This should come as no surprise, because nothing and nobody likes people in-formation – lined up in neat little rows like good little boys and girls – more than the military.

The In-formation War.

We are now in the midst of our first television war … the television environment is total and therefore invisible. Along with the computer, it has altered every phase of the American vision and identity. The television war has meant the end of the dichotomy between civilian and military. The public is now a participant in every phase of the war, and the main actions of the war are now being fought in the American home itself.

— Marshall McLuhan

It has become society’s organising principle.

It has become a bad dream, a nightmare.

For some, that nightmare has become ‘reality’.

Consider the Blade Runner knife attack in Jason Mel-Bourne.

Why do these things happen within the primate simulation? Because nothing serves to bring people into neat little lines of in-formation more than a juicy terrorist incident. It makes the presence of balaclava-clad armed police looking like Nazi thugs on a day trip from the Bosnian killing fields appear ‘normal’, ‘natural’, and ‘reassuring’. It makes terms such as ‘control’, ‘security’, ‘monitoring’ and ‘surveillance’ appear necessary and desirable for the purposes of ‘public safety’.

It’s not real though. The Jason Mel-Bourne attacker had ‘gas cannisters’ to ‘gas the ancestors’. Sound familiar?

Prepare to meet the ancestors in eXistenZ.

Notice how all the walkie-talkie mobile phonies filmed the Jason Mel-Bourne event? In-formation is also intelligence, and in the in-formation war called ‘reality’ everyone is an artificially intelligent intelligence asset. The phonies in their hands, along with the network that connects them, are merely 3D projections of bio-chemical sensors called eyes and ears, which record data in an organic computer called ‘the brain’, one of billions of nodes in a hive mind.

Assets are properties with values assigned to them, and they exist to be exploited…

…and sexploited, because sex is how the ejaculate deception of the Primate Simulation perpetuates itself. Like it or not, you are part of the…

Four ‘skin jobs’?

What was that he said?

You wouldn’t have come if I just asked you to…

Or foreskin jobs?

And my point is…? Well, it all leads back to The Covenant: the fanatics who make sacrifices on your behalf in temples called ‘parliaments’, ‘senates’, and so on. What is war if not a mass sacrifice of Truman Beings?

According to Genesis, God told Abraham to circumcise himself, his household and his slaves as an everlasting covenant in their flesh. Those who were not circumcised were to be ‘cut off’ from their people (Genesis 17:10-14). Note the connection between circumcision and slavery. It is alluded to in the New Testament.

Cut off or be cut off? Not much of a choice is it? As I observed in The Pyramid Spam, it appears to have something to do with the Due Boys not paying their ‘dues’.

In the Ancient Encryption Pyramid Scam, the leaders were worshipped as gods. Today’s version ‘gamifies’ the scam. The end result is the same: you end up on your knees worshipping ‘The Profit’.

A yet more recent Pyramid Scam: Bernie Madoff, the Wizard of Lies. The end result is the same: you end up on your knees worshipping ‘The Profit’.

Initiative Q, a big-bang-up-to-date Pyramid Scam. The end result is the same: you end up on your knees worshipping ‘The Profit’.

The fineries of the Ancient Encryptions were ostentatious displays of wealth, power, and status – and nothing more. Today we call it ‘bling’, and that bling is designed to awe, intimidate and blind.

The japanese have a saying about business.

She was ‘the business’, an engineered ‘skin job’, a ‘bio-robot‘, a slave.

In the end, it turned out that he was, too.

I recently referred to Prometheus and the Aliens franchise, and asked if engineered truman beings are the real aliens. What would you do if faced with a hostile species intent on waging war come what may? To keep things fair and balanced, let’s ask a gorilla to grunt up an opinion. After all, this bad dream is under military command, so it’s only appropriate to raise a middle finger to Queen Bee’s pathetic attempt to burp up a pardon, and award Corporal Hiccups the final say.

Amen to that, brothers and sisters.

Alive and Kicking

A ‘story’ that caught my eye this week concerns the development of a new sugarcomputer supercomputer specifically designed to mimic the human brain. Named SpiNNaker, it was built by the University of Manchester, but unlike its monolithic single processor dinosaur ancestors it contains one million processors operating in parallel. It was designed to run large-scale simulations, and does so by breaking the ‘problem’ to be solved into separate processes and assigning them to specific processors. This ‘many acting as one’ approach is not unlike that of the hive mind of an ant or bee colony. Does it also reflect the state of truman kind, though? As accustomed as we are to thinking of ourselves as ‘individuals’, the fact is that the vast majority are playing the follow-the-leader game. Pretty much everyone is doing exactly the same thing as everyone else: working, paying taxes, watching TV, going on holiday, etc. Never in truman history have so many ‘individuals’ been so successfully lined up in neat little rows of in-formation. And therein lies the problem: are you actually an individual, or are you one of 7.5 billion processors solving programs problems and crunching data in a primate simulation called ‘reality’?

Interestingly, it’s not the first time that the University of Manchester has played such a pivotal role in computing history. Oddly enough, in the late 1940s the same university gave birth to the ‘Manchester Baby’. The designers gave truman beings the gift of recollection: the ability to store a program in memory, execute it, and display the results graphically.

The story of the Manchester Baby is well worth watching and exceedingly strange, not least because the designer sounds almost exactly like the alleged paedophile Jimmy Savile.

Odd. Jimmy fixed it for them to have Cadbury Animal Biscuits containing only elephants.

Perhaps you’re having a Close Encounter of the Word Kind? Can you see the elephant in the room?

But let’s get back on track. The designer of the Manchester Baby had a beautiful mind, and his creation guided the evolution of the computer, providing a blueprint for the future.

Who wants a design for life, though? Think about it: the Manchester Baby was designed to execute a program stored in memory and display the results graphically. What if I told you that the artificial construct you call ‘reality’ operates on a similar basis, and that what you see ‘out there’ is simply a graphical representation of ‘data processing’ within the mind? What if I told you that even our inception perception of time as a linear or sequential flow from left-to-right is itself a reflection of in-formation processing within the electro-chemical computer we call the ‘brain’?

Do you actually want to be ‘in-formation’?

In a recent conversation with a friend, I highlighted the impossibility of time. We live in a perpetual ‘present’ that eludes definition, and we can only conceptualise the ‘past’ within this ‘present’. A few years ago, the friend in question visited the ruins of Machu Picchu. Yet those ruins only exist in a ‘present’ that is impossible to isolate. Even my friend’s memories of the visit (along with the photos he took as a memento) only exist in the ‘present’. So what does this tell us about our ‘existence’?

If Machu Picchu only exists in eXistenz then can it be trampled out of eXistenZ?

The Manchester Baby of yesterday is also the Manchester Baby of today. What if your perception of time is complete false? What if everything is happening all at once, so that the Manchester Baby was created, is being created, and will be created? Is this recreation of history – or to put it another way, a simulation – repeating over and over again in ways that were imagined, are being imagined, and have yet to be imagined?

The Fear and Loathing ‘cockroach’.

The Ejaculate Simulation: Inception and ‘The Kick’.

WASP. Shoot from the hip, because in this ‘reality’ fucking and shooting are the same.

World War Z and Jerusalem.

Word War Z and the digital-to-analogue sinnergogue shooting in Bradpittsburgh.

All the above ‘stories’ have appeared in my recent posts. Put all that in-formation together in the pot, allow it to simmer for a while, and what do you get?

Here’s an interesting thought: supercomputers are valuable commodities, valuable assets. As I pointed out in Meat The Ancestors, another term for ‘information’ is ‘intelligence’.

In intelligence, assets are persons within organizations or countries being spied upon who provide information for an outside spy. They are sometimes referred to as agents, and in law enforcement parlance, as confidential informants, or “CIs” for short.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asset_%28intelligence%29

During World War II, millions of valuable ‘assets’ were killed during indiscriminate bombing raids. Since then, political and military leaders have gone to extraordinary lengths to minimise ‘civilian casualties’, or ‘collateral damage’ as they call it.

Collateral (noun)

Security pledged for the payment of a loan: He gave the bank some stocks and bonds as collateral for the money he borrowed.

Anatomy: a subordinate or accessory part; a side branch, as of a blood vessel or nerve; collateral circulation.

A relative descended from the same stock, but in a different line.

Source: https://www.dictionary.com/browse/collateral

Why are you considered ‘collateral’, a financial asset, a subordinate part of a whole that is the ‘Truman Family’?

Today, military operations are conducted with surgical precision in order to minimise truman ‘losses’, the destruction of valuable ‘assets’. Let’s examine the beehive-iour of drone strikes in The Truman Zoo for sexsymbol.

Before George Romero got to work on the genre, the portrayal of zombies was a more-or-less accurate reflection of their roots in voodoo.

Zombies are featured widely in Haitian rural folklore as dead persons physically revived by the act of necromancy of a bokor, a sorcerer or witch. The bokor is opposed by the houngan or priest and the mambo or priestess of the formal voodoo religion. A zombie remains under the control of the bokor as a personal slave, having no will of its own.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zombie

The original use of the term is not unlike our use of the term ‘drone’. If everything happening ‘out there’ in 3D reality is a reflection of what is happening in the mind then what does a ‘drone strike’ actually represent? Are you an obedient drone acting under orders, commands, instructions?

How many instructions per second can you perform?

Instructions per second (IPS) is a measure of a computer’s processor speed. For CISC computers different instructions take different amounts of time, so the value measured depends on the instruction mix; even for comparing processors in the same family the IPS measurement can be problematical. Many reported IPS values have represented “peak” execution rates on artificial instruction sequences with few branches and no cache contention, whereas realistic workloads typically lead to significantly lower IPS values. Memory hierarchy also greatly affects processor performance, an issue barely considered in IPS calculations.

Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instructions_per_second

The computer is a product of war. It was designed to crack codes, calculate the trajectory of artillery shells, and assess the feasibility of nuclear weapons. If our ‘reality’ is a graphical representation of events taking place in the mind then it should be very obvious that a battle is being waged for control of the individual node called you. It is an In-formation War, and its purpose is to keep millions of individual ‘nodes’ in line and on line with the rest of the hive: good little worker bees ready and willing to take orders from the Queen.

The military refers to the battleground as a ‘theatre’. It is a global stage play, and the operations being conducted on stage are designed to influence your perception, and thereby your actions. Take the below ‘story’ for example: choose which leader to follow in the belief that doing so amounts to ‘freedom’.

All it really does is offer the ‘freedom’ to choose who exercises power over you, in order to keep you in-formation, in-line, in sequence…

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.

― Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

…and singing from somebody else’s hymn sheet.

Inputs and outputs. Are you seeing what you want to see, or what somebody else wants you to see? A perception of knicks, or an inception of kicks?

Ready to wake up? Those wishing to receive a kick should watch the below raining training videos.

Video ‘Number One’.

Video ‘Number Two’.

As for those in the know, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.

Meat the Ancestors

The subject of ancestry seems to be all the rage these days. Historically, keeping track of one’s descendents was the prerogative of royalty and the nobility, who had a vested interest in recording their lineage, the transmission of their ‘blue blood’ across time, and thereby their inheritance and right to rule. Today, however, anyone with a few quid to spare can get in on the act. It began with the rise of the internet and emergence of sites such as ancestry.com, which offer access to online databases of births, marriages, and deaths. This made it possible for us all to trace our ‘family tree’. More recently, the market has expanded to offer analysis of the alphabet soup that is DNA, for those keen to know whether their own truman source code contains Viking or Norman genes – or perhaps something even more exotic. Does it really matter, though? Whether you believe that truman beings evolved or were created by ‘God’, if you go back far enough then it all boils down to the same scenario: the original couple – the original copy of the source code – from which the whole truman family can trace its lineage.

The Inception Deception and the Family Tree: eat the fruit thereof and become like the gods, knowing ‘good’ from ‘evil’.

We don’t seem to be doing too well on that score though, do we? Moral codes derive from religions, and the modern ‘criminal justice’ systems they gave birth to still assume that a clear dividing line exists between ‘right and ‘wrong’ and ‘good and evil’. Ultimately, we make a mistake if we conflate ‘the legal’ with ‘right and good’ and ‘the illegal’ with ‘wrong and evil’. Changes to the criminal code create new forms of crime literally overnight, criminalising practices that were previously ‘legal’. The reverse is also true (albeit far more infrequently) inasmuch as changes can also decriminalise certain behaviours, although it goes without saying that pardons are visited upon those criminalised under the outgoing law only in exceptional cases.

It’s not difficult to see the similarities between priests and judges. Back in the day, a priest’s moral compass derived from encryptions inscriptions carved into tablets of stone…

…but it seems that even God was confused by his own legal proceedings. The Bible is awash with bloodshed, all of which was ‘author-ised’ by the man with the white beard, despite his holy injunction: Thou Shalt Not Kill. The Law’s uselessness as a moral compass should be self-evident. The case of Nazi code breaker and father of modern computing, Alan Turing, is a prime example. He was criminalised, chemically castrated and driven to suicide for being homosexual. The Law condemned his actions as ‘indecent’ and ‘immoral’, yet what it proscribes one day it permits the next. Today, the wheel has come full circle: those who speak out on the subject of homosexuality must guard their words, lest they find themselves held to account and criminalised.

Of course, it goes without saying that Her Majesty reserves the right to burp up pardons. By the time she saw fit to do so Turing was long dead, and very little is ever said about those of lesser status who were criminalised under the same law.

But I digress. Earlier today, a friend sent me the below image, depicting what looks eerily like one of Ridley Scott’s aliens adorning a 12th century abbey.

If you’re familiar with the Alien films (and the film Prometheus) then you’ll probably know two things about the creators creatures: first, that they were engineered by a more ancient race of trumans, and second that they had acid for blood. Oddly enough, so do we. The truman source code is DNA: Deoxyribonucleic Acid, which begs the question: are we the ‘aliens’? More to the point, if their source code is our source code then…?

It is us. It is everything.

And what is IT?

One of the first things I noticed when I started work at The Tabernacle College was that the computers were all made of stone.

Our ancestors wrote their encryptions inscriptions on stone tablets. The Sumerians wrote on clay tablets using a stylus.

From the ‘Stone Age’ PC, to the merely ‘PC’. Ever get the feeling that ‘god’ likes to mock The Fall, and those who fall for the immaculately conceived Ejaculate Simulation?

Eating the Apple: from the tablet and stylus to the tablet and stylus.

God giveth: Ireland votes to liberate itself and allow the piss to be taken out of those who, quite frankly, deserve to have the piss taken out of them.

And God taketh away. Having thrown off Covenant oppression, they now find themselves back at square one.

Ever get the feeling that ‘God’, along with The Covenant and its priests, are taking the piss?

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has ruled that criticism of Mohammed, the founder of Islam, constitutes incitement to hatred and therefore is not protected free speech. With its unprecedented decision, the Strasbourg-based court — which has jurisdiction over 47 European countries, and whose rulings are legally binding on all 28 member states of the European Union — has effectively legitimized an Islamic blasphemy code in the interests of “preserving religious peace” in Europe.

Take Pope Frankie, the High Judas Priestess of The New Holy Woman Umpire, for sexsymbol. The fucker purports to warship the ‘Mother of God’ and her Ejaculate Deception, but can’t even bring himself to acknowledge what the ‘Holy Spirit’ so obviously represents in his trinity of Osiris, Horus and whatshername. As for the Holy Not-See and the kiddies…Jesus! If you ask me then Frankie needs to shut his mouth, sit down, and actually read the encryptions inscriptions that serve as his moral compass, and christian question the hell out of them.

Whether you refer to them as Osiris/Isis/Horus or God/Mary/Jesus, the Trinity clearly symbolises the original truman source code, the first ‘Holy Family’. Yet tracing our descendents back to an original pair praises raises some uncomfortable christians questions. Is it ancestors or ‘incestors’? Did they follow the sexsymbol of Ancient Encryption royalty and keep it in the family?

What about the creator of the source code, our true ancestor? The ancients used tablets, we use tablets. Our ‘modern’ IT systems run source code predicated on anthropomorphic concepts such as inheritance, parent-child relationships, and ‘classes’.

In object-oriented programming, inheritance is the mechanism of basing an object or class upon another object (prototypical inheritance) or class (class-based inheritance), retaining similar implementation. In most class-based object-oriented languages, an object created through inheritance (a “child object”) acquires all the properties and behaviors of the parent object (except constructors, destructor, overloaded operators and friend functions of the base class). Inheritance allows programmers to create classes that are built upon existing classes, to specify a new implementation while maintaining the same behaviors (realizing an interface), to reuse code and to independently extend original software via public classes and interfaces.

Take a look at the below story about a shooter shooting from the hip in the Ejaculate Simulation of ‘the gods’. If, as Marshall McLuhan maintains, the medium is the message then are ‘modern’ plastic and silicon devices as antiquated as stone and clay?

In this Information Age, are we all sitting in classes? Lined up in neat little rows of in-formation, scribbling away on our ancient tablets, and slowly beginning to learn that everything we see – including ourselves – is information and in-formation?

What if I told you that you are both an ‘informer’ and one who is constantly being informed upon? Ask yourself why science-fictionists are in such a hurry to develop artificial intelligence, as opposed to artificial consciousness. If you don’t know what I mean then consider the following synonyms for the term ‘intelligence’.

If our ‘reality’ is indeed a simulation then are we in fact living in the past? Do ‘modern’ trumans inhabit a technological Stone Age in comparison with the environment that gave birth to the first ‘primitive’ nomads?

In The Colossus of Roads I observed that the early internet was referred to as The Information Superhighway, a digital network of roads. One of the first digital Wonders of the World was a computer named Colossus.

And one of the ‘ancient’ wonders of the world was the Colossus of Rhodes, modelled after the sun-god Helios, son of the Titan Hyperion.

Are we the mobile-phoney walkie-talkie ancestors of Colossus? Electro-comical cum-puters of ‘the gods’, who appear to rather enjoy mocking their most ardent supporters?

Is it time for the truman ‘meat computers’ to meet the Lightbulb Sun of God?

What if the ancestors – the ‘aliens’ – turn out to be us?

The Truman Zoo

Ever been to a zoo? These days they’re open to anyone willing to pay, but historically they have always been a symbol of Royal power. The zoo’s processor predecessor, the menagerie, dates back to the days of the Ancient Encryptions, and this tradition of treating animals like a private stamp collection was adopted by the empires that followed. Solomon, Nebuchadnezzar, and Alexander all followed the Encryption lead, as did the city states of Ancient Greece and the Roman Empire. The zoo proper, as a public rather than primate private display of exotic treasures plundered from conquered territories, has its origins in the 18th century. It was first established by order of the Holy Roman Emperor, Francis I, who opened his own private menagerie to the public in 1765. This magnificent act of Royal benevolence did not come to full fruition until the 19th century, however, when the need to entertain the masses and further the needs of science-fiction came together to produce the modern zoo, with which we are all familiar.

The Zoological Society of London was founded in 1826 by Stamford Raffles and established the London Zoo in Regent’s Park two years later in 1828. At its founding, it was the world’s first scientific zoo. Originally intended to be used as a collection for scientific study, it was eventually opened to the public in 1847. The Zoo was located in Regent’s Park – then undergoing development at the hands of the architect John Nash.

The ‘architect’ was John Nash. Now where have I heard that name before?

Talking of familiar names, one of my posts from last week was titled Primate Change, and the cover picture I used was from Planet of the Apes. Specifically, that of Caesar…

In my previous post, Come Ova and Play, I discussed the ‘MAGA Bomber’ in relation to nuclear weapons and the source code.

The ‘MAGA Bomber’ has now been arrested. And his name is…?

The term ‘issue’ relates to semen, ejaculation, and children.

Issue: Meaning “discharge of blood or other fluid from the body” is from 1520s; sense of “offspring, children” is from late 14c.

Do you think Cesar had enough ’tissues’?

Even the media got in on the acting: CNN’s entire office was ejaculated after a ‘suspicious package’ was found, although in their case it was a false alarm and the ejaculation turned out to be unnecessary. We can only hope and pray that they had plenty of tissue to deal with the issue, and that the post-ejaculation clean-up operation wasn’t too traumatic for them.

Ever get the feeling you’re a character in a global stage play, living in a world of ‘make believe’?

Something like this, perhaps?

Over in America, a.k.a. the United Estates of Vortex Pyramideum, they worship ‘The Profit’. Its citizens are under Mob Rule: gangsters who RECAPTALIZED the Ancient Encryption’s Pyramid Scam. Yet despite their cries of ‘Heil Caesar’ there can be little doubt that their crime is running out. They are refusing to breed, and they desperately need another economic Big Boom.

The same is true for citizens of the European Union, who labour under the oppression of The New Holy Woman Umpire. Why? Because ‘the capital’ is ‘the money’ and children are an ‘investment’ in the future.

Meanwhile, Britain (a.k.a. The Rainbow Alliance of Gender-Non-Specific Safe Spaces, plc) wants to go it alone in a politically correct hell of its own making. Just look at the school system, for example.

The Covenant trains its ‘pupils’ to be good little ‘eye spies’, but on its own terms – which are no more or less insane than those of the so-called ‘opposition’. The situation is even more confused in Northern Ireland, where citizens get hot-under-the-collar on the subject of which ‘cross-community’ they should belong to.

Should they stick with Team GB or join forces with the Pope Bomber? Cross or crescent moon? Heil Caesar or Heil Mary? Heil ‘The Profit’ or Heil ‘The Prophet’? Not much of a choice, is it? Yet is it really surprising when we consider that all states are run by The Covenant? And is it any wonder that the deluded fools who wield power in its Inner Sanctum believe that they are ‘rite’? Here in the UK at least, each and every insane policy initiative is prefixed and/or suffixed with the phrase ‘it is rite that we do this’. Why?

Rite: (a usually religious ceremony with) a set of fixed words and actions: funeral/marriage/fertility rites. You have to go through an initiation rite before you become a full member.

But let’s get back to the zoo. What does the term mean?

A zoo (short for zoological garden or zoological park and also called an animal park or menagerie) is a facility in which all animals are housed within enclosures, displayed to the public, and in which they may also breed. The term “zoological garden” refers to zoology, the study of animals, a term deriving from the Greek zōon (ζῷον, ‘animal’) and lógos (λóγος, ‘study’).

Source: Wikipedia

It’s said that animals are not conscious in the way that truman beings are. One of the most basic tests of ‘self-consciousness’ is the ability to recognise yourself. But if reality is a mirror and you are unable to recognise yourself in that mirror then in what sense are you ‘self-conscious’?

What if ‘reality’ is a simulation in which your own thoughts and memories are played back to you in symbolic form? A kind of IQ test for the artificially intelligent, to determine whether bio-robots have the capacity for true self-awareness?

A human Truman Show, the purpose of which is to determine whether there are any ‘supertrumans’ capable of breaching The Fourth Wall that separates watchers from players?

The fourth wall is a performance convention in which an invisible, imagined wall separates actors from the audience. While the audience can see through this “wall”, the convention assumes, the actors act as if they cannot. From the 16th century onwards, the rise of illusionism in staging practices, which culminated in the realism and naturalism of the theatre of the 19th century, led to the development of the fourth wall concept.

A bit like this, perhaps?

The Human Zoo: a ‘private collection’ of truman animals designed to self-replicate via ‘primate ejaculations’ in a ‘primate simulation’? Is it madness?

Or has someone made a monkey out of you? If animals could talk, how would they describe the bars of their enclosures?

Are we amused? As entertained by it all as the watchers? Or does learning that there is no difference at all between the penis and the gun leave you feeling a bit disillusioned?

On 14 January 1978, during the tour’s final date at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, a disillusioned Rotten introduced the band’s encore saying, “You’ll get one number and one number only ’cause I’m a lazy bastard.” That one number was a Stooges cover, “No Fun”. At the end of the song, Rotten, kneeling on the stage, chanted an unambiguous declaration, “This is no fun. No fun. This is no fun — at all. No fun.”

If you’ve been watching the news over the last few days you’ll know that the focus is on ‘pipe bombs’ sent to senior Democrats such as Clinton and Osama Obama, and their supporters. Those concerned were hastily ejaculated from their homes while the devices were made safe. Even the media got in on the acting: CNN’s entire office was ejaculated after a ‘suspicious package’ was found, although in their case it was a false alarm and the ejaculation turned out to be unnecessary. We can only hope and pray that they had plenty of tissue to deal with the issue, and that the post-ejaculation clean-up operation wasn’t too traumatic for them. The fact that the devices were ‘pipe bombs’ is interesting, don’t you think? A fat, cock-like phallus primed to go off in your hand, so to speak. Of course, sexual innuendo is only the tip of the iceberg: once you start examining the source code you realise that there are multiple levels of meaning. The double entendres (the term means ‘double meaning’) are merely the most obvious layer of obfuscation or occultation that hides the nature of ‘reality’ in plain sight and taunts us with it. The truth of our eXistenZ lies in the occult – that which is hidden – and can be discovered by those who are willing to penetrate the surface.

One of the more interesting targets is Robert De Niro, or more specifically the restaurant he owns. It seems that the bummer bomber is unhappy with what’s on the menu.

Those who read my previous post, The Signal, published the day before the MAGA bomber struck, may remember the Holy Slaughter Laughter of the ‘MAGA Love’.

Did he receive a ‘pipe bomb’ or a ‘Pope bomb’? Maybe the bomber is unhappy about what’s not on the menu. You know, plenty of mermaids or ‘big fishes’…

…but a marked absence of more bite-sized snacks?

In 2013 (yes, 2013) Pope Frankie raised the age from 12 (yes, 12) to 18.

Stiffer punishments? Can you hear the Holy Laughter in God’s ejaculator simulator? Ever get the feeling you’re being mocked?

In the same year, Spain raised its age of consent from 13 to 16 to bring itself ‘in line’ or ‘in-formation’ with the rest of the European Ocean Onion Union.

Frankie had to take the American line and make it 18, though. Just to be whiter-than-white and ensure that each and every pubic hair is firmly in place and accounted for before Holy Wood can be brought to bear deep inside the secretive realm of the Holy Not-See. Do you think Frankie knows the difference between his rifle and his gun? Which is for firing and which is for fun?

The Law has its origins in religion. Today, it is created and enforced by a priesthood known as ‘The Covenant’, whose members worship in temples called ‘Parliaments’ or similar ‘Houses of State’. Those possessed by the ‘will to power’ seek office through erections elections. Their entry into the Holy of Holies depends almost entirely on whether their speech is sufficiently orthodox to satisfy the Covenant leaders who head the competing sects you call ‘parties’.

Members or ‘cocks’ of The Covenant parade their credentials before your eyes, but you do not see this because you have been indoctrinated to believe that what they do, and the sacrifices they make on your behalf, is ‘secular’ and ‘rational’.

Let’s take a look at this ‘ancient’ discovery, shall we?

The country’s Antiquities Ministry said archaeologists also uncovered an attached building which includes a large Roman bath and another chamber that was likely used for religious rituals.

It, too, needs to be ‘ejaculated’ and studied by Covenant science-fictionists.

“The discovered building was built of brick blocks supported by huge blocks of limestone, whose foundations, external walls and inner staircase were built with red brick molds,” Mr Waziri said, according to Egypt Today. He said the area would be excavated and studied in order to discover more about the building.

The Ancient Encryptions and ‘The Ka ‘.

The Ancient Egyptians believed the soul had three parts, the ka, the ba, and the akh. “The ka was essentially a person’s double,” it was the life force and at death it was separated from the body. The reason for extensive and elaborate preparation for the body for the after life was to ensure the ka had a home.

Modern hieroglyphics – tokenized source code in the form of computer programs – have given us ‘The Car’. Autonomous and self-driving.

But what about the zombies, the walkie-talkie mobile phonies who are not self-driving and autonomous? Should The Covenant be permitted to sacrifice them?

Wiped off the map entirely, perhaps? In the phoney nuclear wasteland of Oblivion, everyone has been ‘evacuated’ and Jack is part of the ‘mop up crew’. Heil Mary, rite?

Mother Nature may be a bitch…

…but at least she has no regard for ‘The Law’. In her ejaculate simulation, we can all perform acts of ‘Ejaculate Inception‘ years before The Covenant’s legally sanctioned ‘Age of Consent’. Why, then, has this whole ‘consent’ business become so absurd and…ahem…out of hand?

Words are the source code, so when science-fictionists make up new words in an attempt to define our experience for us we should be ready and willing to sit up, take notice and ask the important question: Why?

The term ‘homosexual’ was invented by science-fictionists in 1880, in order to create a new class of ‘deviants’ who displayed ‘unorthodox’ behaviour, and legitimise new acts of Covenant control.

1892, in C.G. Chaddock’s translation of Krafft-Ebing’s “Psychopathia Sexualis,” from German homosexual, homosexuale (by 1880, in Gustav Jäger), from Greek homos “same” (see homo- (1)) + Latin-based sexual.

Similarly, the ‘paedophile’ was invented by science-fictionists in 1900, for the exact same reasons.

1900, from Greek pais (genitive paidos) “child” (see pedo-) + philos “loving” see -phile). First attested in an abstract of a report by Krafft-Ebing.

Source: https://www.etymonline.com/word/pedophilia

If ‘paedophile’ means ‘one who loves children’ then are you a ‘paedophile’? Why is The Covenant so desperate to criminalise those who love children? Never in the source course of truman his-story have so many Covenant officials had so many fingers inside our children’s pies. Why?

Everyone knows that the first simulators computers were designed during the war, to crack the Not-see code. Alan Turing was the pioneer who hacked the simulation, but he was gay, he was ‘unorthodox’, and The Covenant hounded him into the grave.

What did they do to him? They deprived this bio-robot of his right to ‘ejaculate’. They comically and chemically castrated him, and the act of comically castrating him destroyed his mind, driving him to commit suicide.

Court files recording details of World War Two code-breaker Alan Turing’s convictions for homosexual acts have gone on display for the first time. One of the documents, to be displayed at Chester Town Hall, shows the mathematician admitted “acts of gross indecency” at a trial in 1952. He then underwent chemical castration.

In The Number Games, I suggested that everything we do can be described ‘moth-a-magically’.

Everything we do is, in effect, an equation. You may be unable to perform long division, yet the act of throwing a ball requires you to perform a whole series of complex ejaculations simulations calculations to determine a trajectory based on the mass and shape of the projectile, the distance it has to travel, the prevailing weather conditions, and so on. Oddly enough, one of the very first ‘Turing complete’ computers was designed to do just that.

Although ENIAC was designed and primarily used to calculate artillery firing tables for the United States Army’s Ballistic Research Laboratory, its first program was a study of the feasibility of the thermonuclear weapon.

What is a ‘megadeath’?

Megadeath (or megacorpse) is one million human deaths, usually caused by a nuclear explosion. The term was used by scientists and thinkers who strategized likely outcomes of all-out nuclear warfare.

Every cell in every living orgasm organism contains nuclear material.

The semifluid matrix found inside the nucleus is called nucleoplasm. Within the nucleoplasm, most of the nuclear material consists of chromatin, the less condensed form of the cell’s DNA that organizes to form chromosomes during mitosis or cell division. The nucleus also contains one or more nucleoli, organelles that synthesize protein-producing macromolecular assemblies called ribosomes, and a variety of other smaller components, such as Cajal bodies, GEMS (Gemini of coiled bodies), and interchromatin granule clusters.

The Signal

I visited some friends the other day and, without intending to, ended up in a three-hour discussion about the nature of our ‘reality’. It was an interesting conversation, but I left knowing that it’s not possible to simply tell someone that ‘reality’ is unreal. Like ‘reality’ itself, the unreality of it has to be experienced on an individual level, and when the light bulb finally comes on you’re left wondering how you failed to spot the trail of breadcrumbs. One of the ‘stories’ I told was one I’ve recounted before: someone once engaged me in conversation and asked if I had a brother, telling me I was the spitting image of a friend of his. I replied with “No, so I must have a doppelgänger.” Next day, whilst walking home, a strange character (he was all of 5ft tall and reminded me of Robin Hood for some reason) hopped off a bus and trotted alongside, staring at me intently. I was on the verge of asking him if he wanted to take a picture when he suddenly asked “Do I know you, Sir?”, which in itself is a decidedly odd question to ask. I mean, if he did know me then presumably he would know that he knows me and have no need to ask, right? Obviously I said No, and he replied with “Then you must have a doppelgänger!” Needless to say, after telling this tale I wasn’t surprised to find the following day’s headlines full of stories about the ‘lookalike’ used as a decoy in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi Arabian consulate.

Despite claims that Khashoggi died in a struggle, it now seems that his death was ‘pre-meditated’.

In previous posts I’ve alluded to the similarity and relationship between the words ‘educated’, ‘ejaculated’, and ‘simulated’? All those words can be seen in the word ‘premeditated’, but what else can we see there?

DAMON is NOMAD. Words hidden within and between words. R U agitated? R U educated? R U ejaculated? R U simulated? Are you a zombified mobile phoney? Have you encountered ‘The Signal’?

Hhmm…I seem to recall encountering NOMAD before, in another probe…

The Signal is everywhere, even in something as mundane as a story about football. Take the below story for sexsymbol. Grumpy Mourinho provided a simulated response to christians about Christ-iano, but he was ‘less receptive’ when answering christians about specific individuals.

What is the ‘Genesis’ of an idea? How’s your ‘reception’ today?

Is The Signal coming in loud and clear?

“What are you going to do with him?”
“Nothing… but I can’t speak for COBOL Engineering.”
“I can find my own way to square things with COBOL.”

Excerpt from Inception

Genesis and the Apple. For the Truman race, all the world’s a stage and everything is staged.

The Signal is everywhere. It surrounds you right now, caresses your skin, and even passes right through you. Its in-formation is flying through the air. You cannot see it, and so you deny it exists, just as a fish might deny that it is swimming in an invisible substance called ‘water’ – right up the point someone adds a few drops of ‘die’ to it, whereupon it suddenly springs into view.

COBOL Engineering and the Source Code: a little bit of his-story repeating, replicating, over and over again.

Everyone in the Information Age is in-formation, in order, and part of a global network of informers. This torrent of information maintains the delicate balance that perpetuates The Covenant’s Word World Order and keeps you warshipping ‘The Profit’.

Do you believe in prophecy? Probably not, but The Covenant certainly does. It creates and maintains the environment in which ‘The Profit’ can be warshipped, and because you’ve been thoroughly propagandised from birth you don’t know what ‘The Business’ is about.

Hence you actually think that a ‘Prophet and Cross forecast’ is both ‘secular’ and ‘rational’.

The Nazi’s called it ‘Special Treatment’: the Jews paid their ‘dues’ and went like lambs to the laughter slaughter. The Covenant calls it ‘The Business’, a merry-go-round of birth and death. Heil Mary more crosses to bear? How much more ‘trolling’ to endure?

The Christian west wants you to warship The Profit, the Islamic east wants you to worship The Prophet. Perhaps they’re nothing more than manifestations of The Empire State?

“Learn the lesson of His-Story, Ben. The Assyrian gives way to the Greek, the Greek to the Roman, the Roman to the Byzantium, etcetera, etcetera. Ultimately, The Umpire never dies: ‘The King is dead, long live the King’ as they say. Who occupies the centre at any given point depends on chance and the skill of the puppet masters. Today it’s The Covenant and The New Holy Woman Umpire, tomorrow it’ll crumble to dust and be replaced by the same archetypal form under another name. You know, the Neo-Leviathan Thunder-Repentalist Republic or something.”

Except from Cultish II: The Tears of Jihadonai, by Hugo Stone

Needless to say, The Covenant doesn’t like it when ‘The Profit’ is attacked. Take a look at this article about Chi-Wonga attacking…um…Chi-Wonga. Am I seeing a double? Are you?

Chi-Wonga’s first name is Constantino.

The First Council of Nicaea was a council of Christian bishops convened in the Bithynian city of Nicaea (now İznik, Bursa province, Turkey) by the Roman Emperor Constantine I in AD 325. Constantine I organized the council along the lines of the Roman Senate and presided over it, but did not cast any official vote.

This ecumenical council was the first effort to attain consensus in the Church through an assembly representing all of Christendom. Hosius of Corduba, who was probably one of the Papal legates, may have presided over its deliberations.

Its main accomplishments were settlement of the Christological issue of the divine nature of God the Son and his relationship to God the Father, the construction of the first part of the Nicene Creed, establishing uniform observance of the date of Easter, and promulgation of early canon law.

What is ‘wonga’?

English Romany word for money. Originally means burning embers and in other european Romani dialects ‘angaar’ still has that meaning. In 18th and 19th century English ‘coal’ also meant money. Wonga is the romani calque.

The Church has a problem with it, but not The Business as a whole, apparently.

Talking of trolling, is the gun pen mightier than the sword? Are we living in an age of Big Data or Big Kata?

Through analysis of thousands of recorded gunfights, the Cleric has determined that the geometric distribution of antagonists in any gun battle is a statistically-predictable element. The gun kata treats the gun as a total weapon, each fluid position representing a maximum kill zone, inflicting maximum damage on the maximum number of opponents, while keeping the defender clear of the statistically-traditional trajectories of return fire. By the rote mastery of this art, your firing efficiency will rise by no less than 120%. The difference of a 63% increased lethal proficiency makes the master of the gun katas an adversary not to be taken lightly.

What if fucking and shooting are the same? Let’s ask the Wizard of Zardoz, shall we? He’s not ‘god’ either, just a truman pulling strings behind a curtain in order to manipulate a machine.

To this end, Zardoz, your God, gave you the gift of the Gun. The Gun is good, the Penis is evil. The Penis shoots seeds, and makes new life to poison the Earth…

To ejaculate means to ‘say something quickly or suddenly’. According to Genesis, God ejaculated the universe into being.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.

There’s so much trouble in the word world, but who fired the first shot? Who was responsible for the Ejaculate Inception, that first act of COBOL Engineering?

The simulation program problem and signal failure.

The Truman Race, each ‘member’ equipped with cameras and microphones, wired for sight and sound, walkie-talkie recording mediums, cell phonies broadcasting across the network.

Marshall McLuhan said that we are all NOMADs: nomadic hunter-gatherers of in-formation who inhabit a digital jungle.

But with electricity and automation, the technology of fragmented processes suddenly fused with the human dialogue and the need for over-all consideration of human unity. Men are suddenly nomadic gatherers of knowledge, nomadic as never before, informed as never before, free from fragmentary specialism as never before –but also involved in the total social process as never before; since with electricity we extend our central
nervous system globally, instantly interrelating every human experience.

What is a Truman Being? A bio-comical NOMAD?

Does that bio-comical code have an author? A code writer? An engineer?

Perhaps The Signal is a symbol, a representation of the alphabet soup that is DNA?

A token?

In computer science, lexical analysis, lexing or tokenization is the process of converting a sequence of characters (such as in a computer program or web page) into a sequence of tokens (strings with an assigned and thus identified meaning). A program that performs lexical analysis may be termed a lexer, tokenizer,[1] or scanner, though scanner is also a term for the first stage of a lexer. A lexer is generally combined with a parser, which together analyze the syntax of programming languages, web pages, and so forth.

A lexer forms the first phase of a compiler frontend in modern processing.

Are we bio-robots acting out a stage play written by the electric eye in the sky? And is this electric eye really ‘god’, or merely play-acting?

Primate Change

My recent posts have centred on the role of language as programming, so much so that I was thinking of calling this one ‘Bill and Grace’ as an allusion to Bill Gates and Grace Hopper. Everyone knows who Bill is, although most will be unaware that his business empire started with the development of a BASIC compiler for the emerging micro-computer market. In the days before CP/M, DOS, Windows and Linux there was no difference between a microcomputer’s ‘operating system’ and a programming language. In the early 1980s every beeping box came with a programming language stored on a ROM chip, and if you wanted your box to do anything then you had to learn to program, even if that meant nothing more than remembering a few simple commands to allow you to load someone else’s program. Amazing Grace‘s role in software development is much less widely known, yet equally significant. She is often referred to as the Divine Mother of COBOL, an English-like programming language that uses verbs, sentences, paragraphs and sections. It was designed in the late 1950s (the hey-day of ‘big iron’ when a computer filled an entire room) as a business programming language, and by 1997 it was estimated that 80% of all computer code was written in COBOL. It gained a particularly strong foothold in the financial sector, and even today it’s said that there are more financial trance-actions processed by COBOL code each day than Gargoyle Google searches.

All things considered, I think it’s safe to say that Amazing Grace has made her mark. Let’s ask Sweet Sister Mary Sue about what Amazing Grace knew about ‘warshipping’, shall we?

Google and production company Middleton Media are developing a “big-screen biopic” about the computer programmer, innovator, and warship namesake, Navy Admiral Grace Hopper. The film will be based on Kurt Beyer’s book, Grace Hopper and The Invention of the Information Age, and the script adaptation will be written by Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin, who wrote the script for Disney’s live-action Mulan.

Curious to think that some wish to bow the knee and warship her, no?

Hopper is only the second U.S. Navy warship to be named for a woman from the Navy’s own ranks. This ship is the 20th destroyer of her class. USS Hopper (DDG-70) was the 11th ship of this class to be built at Bath Iron Works in Bath, Maine, and construction began on 23 February 1995. She was launched and christened on 6 January 1996. On 6 September 1997, she was commissioned in San Francisco outside of Silicon Valley with Commander Thomas D. Crowley in command.

Even curiouser that Mr Crowley, The Beast himself, should be put in charge of her.

But is it really surprising given that COBOL was designed to be agnostic?

COBOL (Common Business-Oriented Language) is a high-level programming language for business applications. It was the first popular language designed to be operating system agnostic and is still in use in many financial and business applications today.

Some of you are deluded enough to actually find the process of having your memories crunched recording rewarding. Something about a bicycle theft?

The success of COBOL was predicated on the ease with which code could be re-compiled to run on different machines with different hardware specifications, in an era where the mainframe was king and there was no such thing as a common operating system. Hence COBOL’s agnosticism – but what does that mean, sexactly?

A person who believes that nothing is known or can be known of the existence or nature of God.

Again that strange tendency to situate God in the machine, to see the urine divine in the bread board circuit board. Yet we know that the union between the Holy Spirit and electronics is not exactly a recipe for a happy marriage.

Drink enough of the Holy Spirit, however, and you may well find yourself turning Holy Water into urine wine as part of a baptism of fire.

If ‘god’ is in the machine and urine the machine then what does that make you? God? Or merely another pretender to the toilet throne? Those ‘drunk in The Spirit’ might want to take the Holy Laughter in this ‘mega love vision’ production as a sexsymbol.

Of course, if you look for the divine then you will see the divine, and in so doing completely piss the Unholy Punchline.

Are you human, or part of a vast, interconnected cortex simulation?

A ‘primate simulator’?

A technologically mature “posthuman” civilization would have enormous computing power. Based on this empirical fact, the simulation argument shows that at least one of the following propositions is true: (1) The fraction of human-level civilizations that reach a posthuman stage is very close to zero; (2) The fraction of posthuman civilizations that are interested in running ancestor-simulations is very close to zero; (3) The fraction of all people with our kind of experiences that are living in a simulation is very close to one.

If (1) is true, then we will almost certainly go extinct before reaching posthumanity. If (2) is true, then there must be a strong convergence among the courses of advanced civilizations so that virtually none contains any relatively wealthy individuals who desire to run ancestor-simulations and are free to do so. If (3) is true, then we almost certainly live in a simulation.

If so, do you believe in man-made primate change?

We put a primate on the moon, but is primate change a program problem to be solved, or is it the solution? What does the fearmongering propaganda suggest? Take this ‘final call’ for sexsymbol. Are we facing Oblivion? Is this a Last Chance to Ejaculate Simulate Evacuate Planet Earth?

The faithful believe that we are all part of the ‘word’, the ‘divine logos’, the ‘Body of Christ’, and that this symbolic description of our plight is also a prescription for the future, i.e. that it is ‘desirable’ to be a ‘cell’, part of the great unconscious mass of humanity that looks in the mirror of reality and fails to recognise itself. Is it desirable, though? Or is it better to wake up, to become conscious of the nature of this ‘reality’ and refuse to be programmed?
