Whenever people agree with me I always feel I must be wrong. Oscar Wilde
I’m very busy these days with various projects but wanted to mention that I’m also still working on QuantumGate. While clients have priority (gotta keep the lights on), it’s QuantumGate that I think about before falling asleep every night. There’s some very, very cool things coming to QuantumGate in the future that haven’t been done before, as far as I know. At least one very interesting problem that I’m trying to solve.
I’m also trying to eliminate the backlog of important topics that I’ve been meaning to blog about. For years I’ve had them waiting for me in my “drafts” folder, and I’ve been urged to get back to work on them. I’m sure you’ve noticed the recent steady stream of long-form posts on the blog; there’s more coming soon.
The Master does his job and then stops. He understands that the universe is forever out of control, and that trying to dominate events goes against the current of the Tao. Because he believes in himself, he doesn’t try to convince others. Because he is content with himself, he doesn’t need others’ approval. Because he accepts himself, the whole world accepts him. Tao Te Ching
The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words. Philip K. Dick
If you want to be incrementally better: Be competitive. If you want to be exponentially better: Be cooperative. Unknown
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn. Alvin Toffler
A month ago Starnieuws published a very interesting and revealing article showing how banks are being used by the financial elite to implement their agenda globally. This is information that complements my previous post on the topic titled “The Financial Elite are behind Deplatforming and Censorship on the Internet”. Read more ⟶
Our highest endeavor must be to develop free human beings who are able of themselves to impart purpose and direction to their lives. The need for imagination, a sense of truth, and a feeling of responsibility — these three forces are the very nerve of education. Rudolf Steiner
Until you get comfortable with being alone, you’ll never know if you’re choosing someone out of love or loneliness. Mandy Hale
If you make a movie of the present day culture, in the future it’ll be a horror film. Jacque Fresco
Here’s an article that you definitely should read and think about in the coming weekend; from “Too Many Medicines Simply Don’t Work” by Peter Coy on Bloomberg Businessweek (May 30th 2019): It’s possible that the medicine you’re taking isn’t helping—even if it’s been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. That’s the upshot of a pair of studies in the latest issue of JAMA Internal Medicine. Not good. Read more ⟶
So long as they don’t get violent, I want to let everyone say what they wish, for I myself have always said exactly what pleased me. Albert Einstein
One of the things that I’ve realized and have been thinking about often in the last few weeks is how rich and successful I am. And I don’t mean this in the way that most people understand these terms, which is usually in the financial sense, because I don’t care about being rich and successful in that way. In fact, I’ve written before about the fact that I never want to get rich in that sense. Read more ⟶
Reading after a certain time diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking. Albert Einstein
As you go down the path of life, ask: ‘What’s true?’, not: ‘Who else believes it?’ I’m not in it for the likes. Bill Maher
When a flower doesn’t bloom, you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower. Alexander den Heijer
It is not worth an intelligent man’s time to be in the majority. By definition, there are already enough people to do that. G.H. Hardy
I don’t like ass kissers, flag wavers or team players. I like people who buck the system. Individualists. I often warn people that somewhere along the way, someone is going to tell you: “There’s no I in team.” What you should tell them is: “Maybe not. But there is an I in independence, individuality and integrity.” George Carlin
The German translation of Larken Rose’s excellent and must read book “The Most Dangerous Superstition” is now available on Amazon as paperback and ebook. Originally written in English, the book has also previously been translated into Dutch. The book goes into many details about the system of enslavement that we currently live in and the thinking and psychology that enables it to continue. Read more ⟶
Work on the new design for my blog is progressing nicely. I think I have the major work done; now it’s mostly about fine tuning, testing in different browsers and devices, and making sure all the many years of old content looks decent in the new design. As things stand now, I’ll probably be putting the new design live during next week when most people are busy celebrating and pretending to be happy and traffic will be low. I’ll then be doing most of the fine tuning on the live blog; so if you see weird stuff happening you know I’m working on it.
