Wisdom, Justice, and Love

Vegas_2017_Wisdom

Just celebrated the United States birthday of being 241 years old! Proud to be here but I really need to travel more. It really pays to know your history, it guides you into sorting out the core values of life and to gear toward what’s really important.

Still learning to go beyond jack of all trades – but things seem scattered picking a single thing to specialize in. It’s good to know, and wisdom is acquired very slowly. I talk to the older crowd to get direction with that.

Getting more organized and being stern to core values are key to directing inner happiness. To many of you reading this, just reading through some previous posts will assist in your own health and overall wellness.

The number 28 is very fascinating,  I continue to grow along side of concepts with astrology, meshing with math. Exploring the beauty of geometry all around us is very rewarding.

Also, wisdom, justice, and love are 3 things that inspire to build a strong moral guideline, that helped me stay positive and strong.

Continue to stay healthy and live for those core values.

The Mandela Effect

***UPDATE #2*** Feb 5th, 2017

Big thanks to the reddit group who are pioneer’s of the aftermath.

www.reddit.com/r/Mandela_Effect

Compare the differences on Google Trends to see when timelines cross!

Also the James Bond movie, Moonraker, that young blonde girl with pigtail braids she reminded you in a weird way about “Jaws” ?

Great but NOW – there is no such scene because blonde girl, Dolly – no longer wears braces in the movie at all…

“It’s not just me who is blown away by this. I asked Roberta Lipp, author of The Ultimate James Bond Fan Book. She too was flabbergasted by the “disappearance” of the braces.

It makes no sense for the braces to be gone, both visually from memory and as movie plot device the braces are the reason the beauty bonds with the beast, it makes sense organically to the plot and it’s a visual gag to boot. I know this is not a confabulation in my head and several other people have backed me on it.” (SOURCE)

Added more pictures of the effects – if anyone has any stories or other content they discover please email it to me at 28isthefuture@gmail.com 

THE MANDELA EFFECT IS REAL

nelson_mandela

What is the Mandela effect?

mandela_rezz

Basically it works like this – if you remember something a certain way, and are confident with the way you remember it, but when you check now – it is different. Altered timeline? Digital hacking? Is this a cover up on a government level? I try to be reasonable and explain things logically – a different timeline doesn’t sound that scientific does it??

Sinbad

It’s not Luke, I am your father. Its – NO – I AM YOUR FATHER… Huh?

When I was a child my dad owned a video store in the late 80’s and through the 90’s. I saw all sorts of weird, odd, one off movies. One of them was called Shazaam. I saw the movie, it was real. Now what happened was after a few years this other movie came out with Shaq called Kazaam. Same idea almost, but the movie I saw had two kids – boy and girl.

The Shaq movie only had 1 kid and it was a boy. Now being younger – there was no google or DVDs – and I think I misplaced the VHS because I never saw it again. Forgot all about it. Then last year – I saw other people bring it up on Reddit. I was SHOCKED – because I SAW THE MOVIE!

Then in December some fans asked Sinbad on twitter – and he DENIES ever making the movie. How is this even possible? At first I thought the movie sucked so bad he wanted to get rid of it. He had enough money to buy all the VHS copies and pay off google and whoever to remove any / all digital content. That was the first guess. And then all of a sudden I see the Ford logo altered, also not to mention Mandela himself died in prison in the 80’s. But in our timeline he lived till 95, became president, and died in 2013. Random fact, thenumber28 came online in 2013.

Also everything they mention on Mandela I remember – it was Berenstein Bears. It was Chic-Fil-A – I remember that Pikachu had a freaken black stripe! Google autocorrects me like I AM WRONG, but no – I am not – it was altered!?

Pikachu_Stripe_mandela

The idea is if something was changed in the past – it created a ripple effect, changing things SLIGHTLY – but this didn’t alter our memories or minds.

When I asked my dad about this – he called it ridiculous and could care less. But – still – where is that Kazaam movie that I saw??

mona_lisa_mandela

Seems to me there are two realities that merged. If you remember the old way, your from reality B. Anyone who doesn’t remember any differences at all are from reality A.

A OR B ?
CHOOSE YOUR REALITY

More pics and info on this – I also believe that because I really did see Sinbad’s movie – that somehow the number28 itself was drawn to the altered timeline.

I understand it’s hard to trust the human mind – slight changes might just be damaged memories. However I am convinced that there is more to this story, and so do thousands of others who are around the same age as me.

Her eye... She had a gun in her hand. Please god no?

Mandela Quotes

Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.
It always seems impossible until it’s done.

Energy Never Dies

“Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”

Albert Einstein

This year his theory of gravitational waves were detected therefore proving Einstein’s theory.

atoms2

He figured it out in 1916, and 100 years later – we verified he was right.

Why should we care about gravitation waves? What about energy? There are many other discoveries just around the corner. We have just touched the surface on the transformation of energy.

We know the world has two geographic poles, the polar N and S. That is earth’s magnetic field at play. Imagine a massive magnet bar inside of the Earth, and you will get an idea what Earth’s magnetic field is shaped like.
Now earth does NOT have a giant bar magnet inside it – but it does have a field made by rotating swirling motion of molten iron around Earth’s outer core.

So we have the North Pole and the South Pole. The world also has two magnetic poles: the North Magnetic Pole and the South Magnetic Pole. The magnetic poles are near, but not exactly in the same places as the geographic poles. So two different things, a geographic pole and a magnetic pole.

The needle in a compass points towards a magnetic pole. The compass needle points pretty much due North unless your in the Southern Hemisphere – it points South.

However, if you are near either pole, the compass really becomes useless. It just points to the magnetic pole, NOT the TRUE geographic pole.

Our magnetic field is also tilted a little bit. So on an angle of about 11°, it is no guess that the magnetic poles and the geographic poles are not in the same place. I will note the magnetic poles actually move around.  The spinning motions of  the our planet’s magnetic field, the swirling motions, are changing all the time.

The magnetic field is actually changing, therefore the magnetic poles move. In the 1800s the poles moved an estimated 5.6 miles per year. For some reason, after 1970, they started moving faster. Recently they are moving around 25 miles per year.

atoms1

The Northern and Southern Lights happen near the magnetic poles because of the charged particles (protons and electrons).

While our magnetic fields and energy are fluctuating – our Universe continues to expand. Our world is constantly moving, vibrating, and traveling in circular patterns.

A proven fact is all forms of matter contains an underlying energy of vibration. In fact, everything in the universe is vibrating – from the atom, the molecule, even the seed or a rock. Vibration exists in every living thing. Energy. It never dies. The constant rate of vibration determines the energy form. Slow vibration manifests as a rock, fast vibration is the wind, and very vast high vibrations register as sound or music. Here is the kicker – thoughts and feelings make our atoms vibrate – so they are also energy vibrations.

Even our nervous system consists of tiny ion pumps that maintain an imbalance flux of the inside and outside of the nerve cells.  Changing patterns inside our body when a nerve cell fires, energy is allowed to suddenly flow through the cell membrane. With every breath – your heart is beating to love, and a myriad of oxygen and nutrients flow to the nerve cells in the body to pump ions.

We  also contain forms of chemical energy like fats and sugars.  When our central nervous system creates electrical energy – we lose an equal amount of chemical energy.  So, rather than being energy, life is all about this moving energy – transforming it – from one form to another.

Magnet_Man

Just like magnets – positive attracts positive – and our thoughts, feelings, words, and actions produce vibrating energy, our atoms, which in turn desire other like energies.

Negative energy is also magnetized to other also negative vibrations. We must then, instead of reacting to all the energy around us – we must create it from the energy within, and focus on your attention to what you want to attract.

Higher vibrations consume and transform lower ones.  Therefore, we have the power to change the conditions in our lives by learning how to utilize our thoughts and emotions (our energy).

When you give to a charity, or give up your time – using your energy positively, it will be converted and returned to you. Maybe not right away – but the energy will be sent out and transformed – and come back you.

As we all know – for every action is an equal and opposite reaction.

If we give, we will receive. Our energy will be transformed and converted. In my experience, nothing is closer to the truth.

Learn, Live, and Love!

Leap Year 2016

28isthefuture@gmail.com
Leap into the future

Today is the 28th of February, a special day as our number comes into glory today.

As we know, tomorrow February 29th, 2016 is our leap day. 2016 is a leap year, this is also the Chinese year of the Monkey.

It takes the Earth approximately 365.242189 days – or 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 45 seconds – to circle once around the Sun. This is called atropical year, and is measured from the March equinox.

However, the Gregorian calendar has only 365 days in a year, so if we didn’t add a leap day on February 29 nearly every four years, we would lose almost six hours off our calendar every year.

After only 100 years, our calendar would be off by about 24 days!

thenumber28 celebrates this leap year 2016 to inspire our imagination by moving into the future and taking the risk of leaping smack dab into your ultimate destiny.

Let’s celebrate our time on this earth, and leap!

The Moon’s sidereal period is about 28 days whereas its synodic period is 29.5 days so you are partially right.
The sidereal period is the time it takes the Moon to reach the same position in the sky (the background of the stars) or the time it takes the Moon to return to the same celestial longitude.

The 28-letter word anticostituzionalissimamente (‘in very anticostitutional way’) is the longest word in the Italian language.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Finale

Season 5 Finale last night was OMFG! John Snow what happened????

game-of-thrones-cersei-shame-public-nudity-season-5-finale-recap1

Melisandre gets all smug when, in the wake of Shireen’s murder, the snow begins to melt. But things start looking a little less “Everything’s coming up roses!” when Stannis’ wife (name not worth mentioning, since she did nada to protect Shireen) hangs herself, Stannis learns more than half his men (and horses) have deserted him in the wake of the Worst Bonfire Ever, and then Melisandre abandons camp on one of the last remaining steeds.

(We can all agree now that she’s just a pyromaniac with unusually good powers of persuasion, right?) Apparently the Red Woman saw defeat in her king’s future?

As Stannis proceeds with his plan — attack Winterfell at sunrise! — he gets another “Oh, snap!” surprise, as Ramsay and his much bigger army descend on him, and leave ’em all bleeding out in the snow. Stannis is staggering, badly wounded, when Brienne of Tarth arrives, seeking vengeance for Renly’s black-magic death, and she cuts him down with about 1,000,000 times less effort than she used to fight off the Hound about a year ago. This is how Stannis’ claim to the throne ends, not with the roar of a dragon, but with a “whatever.”

* Sansaplans her mid-battle escape from Winterfell, but is sidetracked by Ramsay’s terrible strumpet, wielding a bow and arrow and threatening mutilation. Reek intervenes, knocking the enemy to her death, and the tormented siblings leap off the castle wall, into the snow and into… freedom? broken bones? hypothermia?

Only time will tell. I could’ve used a bigger win for Sansa to end the season, but hopefully she continues growing into her power — and learns the power of the sword/poison/noose in Season 6.

Spider Dress powered by Intel

Amazing – imagine in the next 3 years how much gear will be fused with wearable technology. Battery charging technology will be able to charge a cell phone in 10 mins. This means it will get smaller and be used by more devices. Check out Intel’s spider dress!

Smart Spider Dress, powered by Intel Edison, blends fashion with robotics and wearable technology to express the wearer’s emotions and protect their personal space.

This fascinating and captivating couture is her latest exploration into what can happen when the worlds of robotics, wearable technology and fashion collide. It made it’s public debut at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas last week.

Intel Spider Dress

The Dutch designer is known for creations such as the brainwave and the dress Fergie wore during the Black Eyed Peas live performance at Super Bowl 2011. She came to Intel last fall to work on projects that inspire innovation in wearable technologies beyond wrist and eyewear. She calls her one-of-a-kind Spider Dress “badass” for how it pushes and bends the boundaries of social norms.

Intel Spider Dress

“Fashion and tech are merging at the moment, beyond blinking dresses or cute skirts. I’m showing how fashion can be thought provoking, something that pushes people to think and share their feelings.”

Her latest creation is a 3D-printed experimental dress crowned at the collar with robotic spider legs.

It’s a violent thing of beauty, at once mesmerizing, provocative and intimidating. The legs constantly move, reacting to real-time biometrics based on pre-programmed social norms and violations. “Spider Dress acts as the interface between the body and the external world,” said Wipprecht. “It uses technology and the garment as a medium of interaction.”

The so-called animatronic arachnid limbs on the Spider Dress know exactly when someone is invading the wearer’s personal space. The legs are driven by computer and sensor technologies that allow it to be autonomous, but assistive and adaptive to the owner’s emotions and desires.

Spider Dress

 

“Since the system based with mechanic spider legs is literally hosted on the shoulders of the wearer and attacks using the same viewing angle as the wearer, the system knows how you feel and adapts to those feelings,” she said.

Thank you for reading – godspeed!

Dual-Core getting weaker

Gaming so far has been good to those on a budget. Intel’s Pentium G3220 and the Pentium G3258 Anniversary editions provided light for many gamers out there. But according to several posts on blog sites and social media, these days might be coming to an end.
Ubisoft’s Far Cry 4 does not run on straight dual core PCs and ends up displaying a black screen and a failure to launch bug. In all fairness, Far Cry 4 does have the Intel Core i5-750 or AMD’s Phenom II X4 955 listed in its minimum requirements section.
Far Cry 4 however is not the only game which has moved past dual core CPUs. EA’s Dragon Age: Inquisition is another game that does not support dual-core processors.
While EA is encouraging demands for a refund for Inquisition and Ubisoft is expected to release a bug fixing the failure to launch bug, by the looks of things, it might be a good time to start saving for a quad core upgrade.
You all know that the new consoles Xbox One and the PS4 pack eight cores coupled with 8 GB of RAM? Even more games such as Watch Dogs show poor performance on dual core CPUs. On mine it would skip and act bogged down. Truely poor when other games run amazingly 60 FPS. They are using programming assigning tasks for multi-cores. Without that extra cores the instructions just halt, even if your dual could handle it at a slower latency.
Looks like times are getting to the last stop folks.
Though not for AMD it would seem, with its low-budget CPUs looking to be the next best alternative for low budget gamers. They have 90$ chips with actual quad cores – where the best 4x core I have listed below.

High Performance Gamer’s Pick

Intel’s Core i5 processors are well-known for their high-end gaming prowess at reasonable prices. We look to the new i5-4460 for its balance between price and performance at $190. Although this CPU’s multiplier is locked, you don’t need aggressive overclocking to achieve excellent frame rates with it.

Architecture Haswell
Frequency (Turbo) 3.2 (3.4) GHz

Windows 10 Beta Style

Microsoft showed off the latest version of its flagship operating system at an event in San Francisco Tuesday. It wasn’t a complete unveiling — Microsoft focused on a handful of features that will benefit business customers.

Here’s a quick rundown:

– Return of the Start menu. After being inexplicably removed from Windows 8, the Start menu is back, and includes a new personalizable space for favorite apps, programs and websites.

windows 10 start menu

– Apps in windows. With Windows 10, Microsoft has standardized the format for apps from the Windows Store and regular desktop programs. Both now run in traditional windows that can be resized and minimized from the bar at the top.

– Multiple desktops. A feature Mac users have enjoyed for years: the ability to create and swap between different desktops.

windows 10 multiple desktops

– A soup-ed Snap. The “Snap” feature, which allows users to work on multiple apps at once from the same screen, has been redesigned with a new quadrant layout to allow for up to four programs at once.

windows 10 snap

– New Task view button. A new button on the task bar takes you straight to a single screen that displays all your open apps and files (the old Alt + Tab trick).

windows 10 task view

One noteworthy aspect of Tuesday’s announcement was the revelation that Microsoft will allow business customers to choose specific Windows features to upgrade one at a time, rather than being forced to transition all at once from an older version.

Windows 10 is a key part of new CEO Satya Nadella’s effort to position Microsoft as a “mobile-first, cloud-first” company with a particular emphasis on productivity software. The goal is to make products like Office, Outlook and Skype staples for individual customers regardless of the device they’re using, and to transform Windows from a desktop operating system to cloud computing platform that can be accessed from anywhere.

Microsoft says Windows 10 “will run across the broadest range of devices ever,” from consumer products like PCs, tablets, Xboxes and phones to enterprise data centers and “Internet of Things” connected devices. There will be just a single app store for all these formats, and Microsoft says it will be possible for developers to write an application once and then deploy it across device types.

The company didn’t provide a timeline for when it would announce new consumer-focused features, let alone when Windows 10 would be available to the public. Microsoft typically shows off Windows features incrementally to customers to try them out and provide feedback.
