Quote of the Day:

I don’t want to really scare you, but it was alarming how many people I talked to who are highly placed people in AI who have retreats that are sort of 'bug out' houses, to which they could flee if it all hits the fan.

”We live in a nightmare of falsehoods, and there are few who are sufficiently awake and aware to see things as they are.”

Quote of the Day:

Quote of the Day:

"Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I've done that. Yes, that works."

Quote of the Day:

The top 1% of the world's population own 80% of the world's wealth. It's incredible that people put up with it. But...they're poor, they're demoralised, and they're frightened. And therefore they think perhaps the safest thing is to take orders and hope for the best.

Quote of the Day:

You have to remember we brought back a picture of the Earth as it is 240,000 miles away. And the fact is, it gives you a different perspective of the Earth when you see it as three-dimensional between the sun and the moon...

You have to really kind of think about our own existence here in the universe. You realise that people often say, ‘I hope to go to heaven when I die,'. In reality, if you think about it, you go to heaven when you’re born.

It's only paranoia if their not out to get you...

Quote of the Day:

Every fact of science was once damned. Every invention was considered impossible. Every discovery was a nervous shock to some orthodoxy. Every artistic innovation was denounced as fraud and folly. The entire web of culture and ‘progress,’ everything on earth that is man-made and not given to us by nature, is the concrete manifestation of some man’s refusal to bow to Authority.

Robert Anton Wilson
