Cold hard facts

Authored by James Rickards via The Daily Reckoning,

American cities are burning, there’s a lethal pandemic and we’re in a new Great Depression.

Other than that, everything’s fine…

PLEASE SUPPORT WWW.ZEROHEDGE.COM – MY FRIENDS WORK THERE !

People often ask me when things will “get back to normal.” Well, the answer could be never (or at least not for a long time).

Germany was not “normal” from 1914–54, for example. Social disorder is like a virus; it goes away eventually but not necessarily soon.

Meanwhile, we’re now in our third month of a national lockdown, with perhaps another month to go, depending on your locality.

Some states and cities are beginning to reopen, but they’re doing it in “phases,” so maybe your hair stylist reopened last week and your favorite restaurant will reopen next week.

The lockdown has certainly been painful for many. Even under the best of circumstances, anxiety levels went up, patience wore thin and tempers flared at trivial things. Cabin fever is a real disease.

Was it all worth it?

I’ve done a deep dive on this and the answer is almost certainly no.

The lockdown did slow the spread of the virus and did save some lives, that’s true. Yet the gains may only be temporary.

“Flattening the curve” does not mean reducing total infections and deaths. It just means stretching them out over a longer period so the hospital system is not overwhelmed.

There were much better solutions for this, including temporary hospitals and sending doctors and nurses from low-infection areas to those areas most in need, like New York City.

The biggest problem with the lockdown was that everyone counted the benefits but no one calculated the costs.

Many may have died and still could die from suicide, drug overdoses, alcoholism, domestic violence and other untreated medical conditions like cancer and heart attacks because patients were afraid to go to hospitals for fear of getting the virus.

In short, the lockdown may end up costing more lives than were saved.

That’s on top of trillions of dollars of lost wealth and lost economic output. That’s what happens when you put doctors in charge of the economy. Next time, it might be a good idea to let a few economic analysts into the room also.

But don’t worry, the optimists say. We’ll see a “V”-shaped recovery once the lockdowns are fully lifted.

You probably know the theory of a “V”-shaped recovery. The idea is that the economy fell sharply in March and April 2020 but it’s ready to bounce back with a record recovery this summer and fall.

The crash is one side of the “V” and the recovery is the other. The result is you end up recovering all of your losses and are ready for new growth from the old levels.

You’ll hear this a lot, but don’t believe it.

Remember “green shoots” in 2009 and 2010? They turned out to be brown weeds. Yes, the economy eventually recovered and the stock market went on to new highs, but it was the weakest recovery in U.S. history and those stock market highs took almost seven years to appear.

Things are much worse now.

Yes, we will hit a bottom this summer. And yes, a recovery will begin. But it will be long and hard.

Output may not get back to 2019 levels until 2022 or later. Unemployment will come down, but it is still expected to be higher than the worst of the 2008 crisis in 2023. The bankruptcies are just starting.

We’ve seen J. Crew, J.C. Penney, Neiman Marcus, Pier 1 Imports and Hertz all file for bankruptcy in recent weeks. There is a long line of name-brand companies right behind them preparing to go bankrupt also.

Receive a daily recap featuring a curated list of must-read stories.

Not only will we not have a V-shaped recovery, but it will probably be an “L” (down and then sideways).

The 2009–2020 recovery was an “L” where the new trend for growth was 2.2% instead of the post-1980 trend of 3.2%.

Now the new recovery (when it begins) may have output of only 1.9% or less.

When each recovery is weaker than the one before and debt goes up faster than growth, it’s just a matter of time before you go broke — or eventually break out in inflation.

We probably won’t see inflation for a while because inflation has a strong psychological component and right now a deflationary mindset prevails.

That may change — it probably will — but we’re not there at this point.

Meanwhile, people are looking for “safe havens” right now.

Stock and Treasury market behavior can be explained as much by “safe haven” demand as fundamentals. But what happens when the safe haven doesn’t look so safe?

There’s still one place to go — gold.

Personally, I really hope things get better. But when I was in the hospital, the scary part is, that what I was seeing is happening today and I don’t like it. AND, NO, what is BS is WHAT THEY DID TO ME.

Obama gate

What is Obama Gate?

Today on May 11th, 2020 I awoke to an explosion of Twitter feed #Obamagate

I am slowly building this and might post it before it is completed. BLOG WORK IN PROGRESS. This event is rapidly unfolding, each day I add to this more information comes out. The point of this post is to post a summary of ObamaGate along with my thoughts, bringing in rare knowledge to you that I have been digging for! All of my comments are with a Drop Cap, the first letter is Big .

We want to show the people facts on why the world is talking about Obama Gate.

Obama was all in favor of a peaceful transition of power. Behind the scenes he was plotting some bad things, as is still coming to light about this entire dark part of history. When they say “drain the swamp”, what are they talking about? Things are corrupt and it goes deep.

WATCH THE VIDEO – Obama Transition of Power 2016

We see Obama talking about the transfer of power from his administration to the next.

What we found out was another plot.

What is this guy talking about?

Proof is coming?

I woke up to over 3.36 Million Tweets ! Huh ???

8th Trending topic in the world !

What exactly is OBAMA GATE?

It is a reference from Water Gate, from the Richard Nixon Administration.

We all know our history right?

This almost happened to Trump. However our 45th President did not leave his office, he was exonerated.

Who is Michael Flynn?

Biggest Abuse of Power Scandal in American History

Part 1

Part 2

The Aftermath Witch Hunt

President Donald Trump is acquitted for life!

The Democrats’ impeachment witch hunt has finally come to a close. Here’s the disgraceful sham by the numbers:

  • 134 wasted days not working for the American people.
  • 119 Democrats who supported impeachment before the whistleblower complaint became public.
  • 17 Democrat witnesses called.
  • 0 Republican witnesses called.
  • 3 silver platters Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) used to present celebratory pens for the “solemn” signing ceremony.
  • 33 days Speaker Nancy Pelosi held the extremely “urgent” articles of impeachment.
  • 63 million votes Democrats tried to invalidate due to their hatred of the man in the White House.

The impeachment political hit job lacked due process or fairness for the president, breaking all historical precedent. The Democrats’ unfounded case met its final fate in the Senate where it came crashing down due to lack of facts, evidence, or truth. The White House Defense Team obliterated the sham orchestrated by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Co. bit by bit.

No quid pro quo. No pressure. No impeachable offense.

Now, this unconstitutional impeachment expedition is the Democrats’ legacy. They are responsible for dividing our country and taking us down a long, hard road of impeachment solely because it’s what their radical base demanded. It’s been the goal since Jan. 20, 2017 when they saw President Trump step foot in the White House, promising to drain the swamp and put America first.

Their legacy of impeachment is all they have to show for their House majority – and the American people will judge them harshly. In the midst of it all, President Trump stood up for America on the world stage and worked to unleash the best economy in the world. He never let the impeachment noise from the swamp stop him.

It’s time to move on now that the Democrats’ efforts to dismiss 63 million Americans have been crushed. The impeachment chapter is closed, and the witch hunt is over.

SOURCE – THE HILL IMPEACHMENT REPORT

I am just a unicorn in the corner web of the internet. A very casual blogger. The following article describes this Operation Cross-fire Hurricane and it looks, sad, and dirty. The only response I hear back is “well he deserved it”. You can please describe how to digest and process all this information. All that tax payer money, elected officials, everything that represents America had some corrupt things going on only recently. Is this why #ObamaGate was blowing up on Twitter ?

OPERATION CROSS-FIRE HURRICANE

SOURCE – THE HILL – OPINION

“Operation Crossfire Hurricane,” the FBI’s code name for its investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign and Russia, blew through the United States in 2016 and did more damage to our national security institutions than any real hurricane could. The upcoming report from the Department of Justice’s Inspector General may well conclude that high-level Obama Justice Department and FBI officials knowingly lied to obtain top-secret surveillance warrants that were originally designed to target foreign spies and terrorists, and used them to monitor a U.S. citizen whose only crime appears to have been acting as an adviser to the Trump campaign.  

While lying to a federal court is a crime, lying in the context of using our nation’s most secret — and most constitutionally intrusive — counter-intelligence assets as part of a false narrative to oppose a political candidate is downright dangerous and should strike fear in the average citizen who now is left to wonder what protects them from such seemingly unchecked power of the state. 

It is a very serious matter to obtain a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) warrant. The members of the FISA Court are appointed by the chief justice of the Supreme Court. Each of these federal judges rotates into Washington to sit in the highly-secure courtroom inside the Department of Justice (DOJ) on Pennsylvania Avenue to review and sign FISA applications, which then become formal warrants to surveil national security targets in a variety of classified and unclassified ways. 

THE HILL SOURCE – Link to Entire Article about the Operation

Here is Trump again saying they have done some pretty bad things.

Then you see this article.

The President Declines to Name the Crime

This country has many secrets. You know what I think happened? There is national security, big heavy secrets about things, and you know, somehow Trump got tagged as a threat to our nation that could not imagine an outsider (out of politics) getting into the White House, so he was put on the backside of our spy agency. They put him in as a threat to our nation.

That in a nutshell is what happened. The President can’t tear the layers of the onion too far because of all the other Pandora Boxes around in that basement. Dominos ! The entire thing might come down and collapse, the previous President thought this new President was a threat to our democracy and there you have it.

Declassified docs show Obama knew about Flynn investigation

Will President Obama come out to talk about this?

What will the consequences be of this evidence that has been hidden from the public result in? Will it be swept under the rug? Are we going to have another trial?

I want to add I voted for Obama twice. I was proud to have the first black President serve in the White House. I also knew that the impeachment trial was unfair. When we get to this point in 2020 about ObamaGate, I can only dream of this being properly investigated and to have all the information come out to the American people and we make up our own minds on what really happened.

Re: Your Failure to Find Precedent for Flynn Dismissal

Regarding the decision of the Department of Justice to dismiss charges against General Flynn, in your recent call with your alumni, you expressed great concern: “there is no precedent that anybody can find for someone who has been charged with perjury just getting off scot-free. That’s the kind of stuff where you begin to get worried that basic — not just institutional norms — but our basic understanding of rule of law is at risk.”

Here is some help—if truth and precedent represent your true concern. Your statement is entirely false. However, it does explain the damage to the Rule of Law throughout your administration.

First, General Flynn was not charged with perjurywhich requires a material false statement made under oath with intent to deceive.1A perjury prosecution would have been appropriate and the Rule of Law applied if the Justice Department prosecuted your former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe for his multiple lies under oath in an investigation of a leak only he knew he caused.

McCabe lied under oath in fully recorded and transcribed interviews with the Inspector General for the DOJ. He was informed of the purpose of the interview, and he had had the benefit of counsel. He knew he was the leaker. McCabe even lied about lying. He lied to his own agents—which sent them on a “wild-goose-chase”—thereby making his lies “material” and an obstruction of justice. Yet, remarkably, Attorney General Barr declined to prosecute McCabe for these offenses.

Applying the Rule of Law, after declining McCabe’s perjury prosecution, required the Justice Department to dismiss the prosecution of General Flynn who was not warned, not under oath, had no counsel, and whose statements were not only not recorded, but were created as false by FBI agents who falsified the 302.

Second, it would seem your “wingman” Eric Holder is missing a step these days at Covington & Burling LLP. Indelibly marked in his memory (and one might think, yours) should be his Motion to Dismiss the multi-count jury verdict of guilty and the entire case against former United States Senator Ted Stevens. Within weeks of Mr. Holder becoming Attorney General, he moved to dismiss the Stevens prosecution in the interest of justice for the same reasons the Justice Department did against General Flynn—egregious misconduct by prosecutors who hid exculpatory evidence and concocted purported crimes.

As horrifying as the facts of the Stevens case were, they pale in comparison to the targeted setup, framing, and prosecution of a newly elected President’s National Security Advisor and the shocking facts that surround it. This case was an assault on the heart of liberty— our cherished system of self-government, the right of citizens to choose their President, and the hallowed peaceful transition of power.

Third, the inability of anyone in your alumni association to find “anybody who has been charged [with anything] just getting off scot-free” would be laughable were it not so pathetic.

Many of your alum feature prominently in the non-fiction legal thriller published in 2014: Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice. A national best- seller, it focusses on the egregious prosecutorial misconduct of your longest serving White House Counsel, Kathryn Ruemmler; your counter-terrorism advisor Lisa Monaco; Loretta Lynch’s DAG for the Criminal Division Leslie Caldwell; and Mueller protégé Andrew Weissmann. While they worked as federal prosecutors on the Enron Task Force—under the purported supervision of Christopher Wray—they destroyed Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs; sent four Merrill Lynch executives to prison on an indictment that criminalized an innocent business transaction while they hid the evidence that showed those defendants were innocent for six years. Both cases were reversed on appeal for their over-criminalization and misconduct. Indeed, Andersen was reversed by a unanimous Supreme Court.

Fourth, even if your many alumni don’t remember multiple cases that had to be reversed or dismissed for their own misconduct, Judge Emmet Sullivan should remember dismissing the corrupted case against Ted Stevens. Judge Sullivan is the judicial hero of Licensed to Lie. It is that case that caused Judge Sullivan to enter the strong Brady order the Mueller and D.C. career prosecutors violated repeatedly in the Flynn prosecution.

Fifth, there is precedent for guilty pleas being vacated. Your alumni Weissmann and Ruemmler are no strangers to such reversals. At least two guilty pleas they coerced by threats against defendants in Houston had to be thrown out—again for reasons like those here. The defendants “got off scot-free” because—like General Flynn—your alumni had concocted the charges and terrorized the defendants into pleading guilty to “offenses” that were not crimes. Andersen partner David Duncan even testified for the government against Andersen in its trial, but his plea had to be vacated. Enron Broadband defendant Christopher Calger had his plea vacated. There are many others across the country.

Sixth, should further edification be necessary, see Why Innocent People Plead Guilty, written in 2014 by federal Judge Jed Rakoff (a Clinton appointee). Abusive prosecutors force innocent people to plead guilty with painful frequency. The Mueller special counsel operation led by Andrew Weissmann and Weissmann “wannabes” specializes in prosecutorial terrorist tactics repulsive to everything “justice” is supposed to mean. These tactics are designed to intimidate their targets into pleading guilty—while punishing them and their families with the process itself and financial ruin.

Most important, General Flynn was honest with the FBI agents. They knew he was—and briefed that to McCabe and others three different times. At McCabe’s directions, Agent Strzok and McCabe’s “Special Counsel” Lisa Page, altered the 302 to create statements Weissmann, Mueller, Van Grack, and Zainab Ahmad could assert were false. Only the FBI agents lied—and falsified documents. The crimes are theirs alone.

Seventh, the D.C. circuit in which you reside vacated a Section 1001 case for a legal failure much less egregious than those in General Flynn’s case. United States v. Safavian, 528 F.3d 957 (D.C. Cir. 2008). Safavian sought advice from his agency’s ethics board and did not give them all the relevant info. The jury convicted him on the theory it was a 1001 violation to conceal the information from the government ethics board. The court disagreed: “As Safavian argues and as the government agrees, there must be a legal duty to disclose in order for there to be a concealment offense in violation of § 1001(a)(1), yet the government failed to identify a legal disclosure duty except by reference to vague standards of conduct for government employees.” General Flynn did not even know he was the subject of an investigation—and in truth, he was not. The only crimes here were by your alumni in the FBI, White House, intelligence community, and Justice Department.

These are just a few obvious and well-known examples to those paying any attention to criminal justice issues.

Finally, the “leaked” comments from your alumni call further evinces your obsession with destroying a distinguished veteran of the United States Army who has defended the Constitution and this country “from all enemies, foreign and domestic,” with the highest honor for thirty-three years. He and many others will continue to do so.

Did Einstein Believe in God?

“There must be something behind the energy” – Einstein

In school, my younger years, it was my understanding that Einstein was all science. And I was tricked to believe he was an atheist. He was not. Doesn’t bother me either way, but perhaps was some group’s idea to ‘hide’ or ‘alter’ what he really said from the conscience of mainstream civilization post 1960. When finding this article on bethinking.org I thought I would share this incredible work with you.

What would Einstein say about God? I admire him and Edison very much, as Tesla. Who doesn’t? Everyone has their view on how the world works, free will baby!

Except, I wonder, what did he say about God specifically?

Dawkins explains that in dealing with Einstein’s religious views he relied on Max Jammer’s book Einstein and Religion

What did Einstein really say?

The following quotations from Einstein are all in Jammer’s book:

“Behind all the discernible concatenations, there remains something subtle, intangible and inexplicable. Veneration for this force is my religion. To that extent, I am in point of fact, religious.”[8]

“Every scientist becomes convinced that the laws of nature manifest the existence of a spirit vastly superior to that of men.”[9]

“Everyone who is seriously involved in the pursuit of science becomes convinced that a spirit is manifest in the laws of the universe – a spirit vastly superior to that of man.”[10]

“The divine reveals itself in the physical world.”[11]

“My God created laws… His universe is not ruled by wishful thinking but by immutable laws.”[12]

“I want to know how God created this world. I want to know his thoughts.”[13]

“What I am really interested in knowing is whether God could have created the world in a different way.”[14]

“This firm belief in a superior mind that reveals itself in the world of experience, represents my conception of God.”[15]

“My religiosity consists of a humble admiration of the infinitely superior spirit, …That superior reasoning power forms my idea of God.”[16]

“There must be something behind the energy”

What gives the lie to Dawkins’ claim that Einstein was an atheist is Einstein’s repeated references to “a superior spirit””a superior mind”“a spirit vastly superior to men””a veneration for this force” etc. etc. This is not atheism. It is clear Einstein believed that there is something beyond the natural, physical world – a supernatural creative intelligence. Further confirmation that Einstein believed in a transcendent God comes from his conversations with his friends. David Ben-Gurion, the former Prime Minister of Israel, records Einstein saying “There must be something behind the energy.”[17] 

According to Dawkins, “Einstein was repeatedly indignant at the suggestion he was a theist.”[19] The evidence from Jammer’s book is the exact opposite. What Einstein actually said is:

“I am not an atheist, and I don’t think I can call myself a pantheist.”[20]

“Then there are the fanatical atheists whose intolerance is of the same kind as the intolerance of the religious fanatics and comes from the same source.”[21]

“There is harmony in the cosmos which I, with my limited human mind, am able to recognize, yet there are people who say there is no God. But what really makes me angry is that they quote me to support such views.”

Violet vs Purple

Mid September 2018 – Today  I learned more about purple and violet. How color hits our eyes and we create the picture based on color
wavelengths sent to our eye. I like learning things, and in particular I like violet better then purple for a number of reasons. Here is what you should know about these colors.

The individual difference between ‘violet’ and ‘purple’

People say that a picture is worth a thousand words, so let’s take a look at the two colors in comparison (there are various shades of purple and violet, and the following picture shows some of the more common ones):

So, purple is more reddish and saturated, while violet is more bluish and less saturated. Case closed, right?

There is more in it than the eyes can see (quite literally). To understand the difference, we have to take a look at how our eyes work first.

The electromagnetic spectrum is a continuous range of wavelengths, only a tiny part of which is visible to humans:

Electromagnetic Spectrum

We see neither the ultraviolet wavelengths and shorter, nor the infrared wavelengths and longer. How do we see the rest? We have three types of color-sensitive cells in our eyes, so-called cones.

The cones don’t perceive just a single wavelength; they are activated by a whole range of wavelengths, and the signals received from the cones are then processed by the brain in such a way that every color can be thought of as composed of three different elementary signals.

The following picture shows approximately how the brain perceives different spectral colors (the higher the curve, the higher the intensity of the elementary signal the brain receives):

Color-Cones

For example, when you see monochromatic (pure) red light on the very right side of the spectrum, only the “red” signal path is activated, which tells your brain to create the impression of red. On the other hand, when you see pure green light (in the middle), both “green” and “red” paths are activated, but your brain knows that “a lot of green activation and a bit less red activation” is in fact just a pure green color, which is what you see.

When a mixture of photons that have different wavelengths hits the retina (creating a ratio of red, green, and blue activation different from any spectral color), the brain will perceive it as an entirely different color. For example, there is no white wavelength. What we perceive as “white” is in fact just a mixture of many different spectral colors.

What happens when violet light hits the retina?

The “red” signal path has an interesting additional property. As you can see above, it has a small bump of activation around the short-wavelength (violet) end of the visible spectrum. When violet light hits the retina, both the “blue” path and (much less) the “red” path are activated. The brain interprets this kind of input in a specific way, which we call “violet”.

It is worth noting that the pigment in the “green” cones themselves also has a small peak of absorption around violet wavelengths, but the brain seems to ignore it (it is not possible to simulate the perception of violet by a combination of green and blue light).

Purple is not a spectral color

As we noted before, many colors we can see are not in the visible spectrum. When you see an object, typically a mixture of different wavelengths reaches your retina, which causes the cones to be activated at a ratio not achievable by a spectral color.

Our brains are very good at interpreting this mixture (it would be silly to simply throw away a part of the incoming information and make everything look like the closest spectral color), and, as a result, we are able to see several million different colors, most of which are not present in the spectrum.

As we noted at the beginning of the article, purple looks more “reddish” than violet, and that’s absolutely correct. Purple is formed by mixing red and blue at a ratio close to 1:1, whereas violet is perceived by your eyes as containing more blue than red.

Purple and violet look similar only to humans

To us, humans, purple looks like a more saturated shade of violet, but violet objects in nature are fundamentally different from purple ones. Purple objects are “red and blue at the same time”, whereas violet objects are… just violet.

If you take a look at the distance between violet and blue in the picture of the spectrum above, it is about the same as the distance between green and orange. Purple is a mixture of red (which is at the opposite side of the spectrum than violet) and blue (which is relatively far from violet), so it is, in terms of wavelengths, a completely different color.

The reason why purple and violet look similar to us is because they stimulate our cones in a similar way, but most other animals don’t share the same types of cones and “post-processing”. This means that to other animals, purple and violet may look completely different!

Now imagine a violet flower petal with a purple pattern on it. Depending on the particular shades, this pattern might be completely invisible to us, while many other animals could see it as clearly as we can see an orange pattern on green background. Even common consumer cameras wouldn’t help us; they are designed to capture the same red-green-blue information as our eyes do, so even taking a photo of the petal and editing it in Photoshop would not uncover the pattern.

Look for aura that is “deep pink and dark green” for the cosmic teacher.

Fawn M Brodie

This post is dedicated to Fawn M. Brodie

Born – September 15, 1915 – Died –  January 10, 1981

She would have turned 103 years old – if any of you like to read and want a good book – I mean, a book where YOU REALLY get into it – Please pick up one of hers!

Here is a quote Fawn:

She has written some incredible books. IN FACT – I really enjoy her writing style. Very brilliant. I wish I could have met her.

Fawn Brodie’s father was LDS Prophet David O. McKay’s brother. She was known nationally for her historical works on Thomas Jefferson and Richard Nixon, but among the Mormons was best known as author of “No Man Knows My History”, a biography of Joseph Smith, Jr.

This interview is adapted from an audio taped interview by California State University – I posted a sample of this HERE =

Q: What was your mother’s reaction to your disbelief in Joseph Smith’s divine calling as a prophet?

A: Mother was a kind of quiet heretic which made it much easier for me. Her father had been nominally devout but as president of the Brigham Young University he had brought in people like G. Stanley Hall and John Dewey as lecturers, and philosophers and psychologists who were fascinated by the Mormon scene. He was a very open minded man and a fine educator. Some of this rubbed off on my mother and so I say, “My grandfather was not a heretic, but his children were,” or rather some of them were.

Q: What about your brother and sisters?

A: Well, my brother is still a devout Mormon but my sisters are all, what we call, “Jack Mormons,” since they are still technically in the church but they are not active and they don’t go along with the Mormon dogma. They still count themselves Mormons.

Q: Do you?

A: Oh, no. I am an excommunicated Mormon. I was officially excommunicated when the biography of Joseph Smith was written and published. About six months after publication, there was a formal excommunication.

Q: Would you care to explain more about that?

A: I was excommunicated for heresy–and I was a heretic– and specifically for writing the book. My husband was teaching at Yale at the time and we were living in New Haven, CT. Two Mormon missionaries came to the door and presented me with a letter asking me to appear before the bishop’s court in Cambridge, MA to defend myself against heresy. I simply told them, or wrote a letter telling them, that I would not go because, after all, I was a heretic. So then I was officially excommunicated and got a letter to that effect.

Q: This was because of writing the book “No Man Knows My History?”

A: That is right.

Q: Were you allowed ample access to records and manuscripts when you were writing the book?

A: Almost all of the material in the book came from three great libraries. At the University of Chicago, where I was working after I married Bernard, there was really a great collection of western New York State history so by going through the material I was able to find out something about the sources of Joseph Smith’s ideas, particularly the ideas which went into the writing of the Book of Mormon. I finally ended up going to Albany, NY, where all the newspapers were kept which were published in Joseph Smith’s own hometown in Palmyra, NY. So I was able to read the newspapers he had read as a young man. This turned out to be an absolute gold mine!

A lot of the theories about the American Indians being descendants of the Lost Ten Tribes and the descriptions of what were being found in the Indian mounds were in the newspapers. The speculation was there. That was extremely important as was the anti-Masonic material. The anti-Masonic excitement was very strong at that time. Then I went to the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library. The New York Public Library has the best Mormon collection in the country outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.

I did go to the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints at Independence, MO, and I did go to the library of Salt Lake City for some periodicals, early Mormon periodicals that I couldn’t get anywhere else. I was permitted to see those, but I was not permitted to see any manuscript material.

Q: Are those church archives open now? I read a comment indicating that it was believed that your book would open archival material.

A: It had the reverse effect. The archives were largely closed to scholars after my book came out. But in recent years they have become open again. The new man who is head of the church historian’s office, Leonard Arrington, a fine historian, is much more liberal in his attitude than the older historians. The younger scholars are now being given access to the archives in a way they were not before. I think this was long overdue but a very good trend.

Einstein & Tesla 2018

What will 2018 bring?

Ten years from today – we will be in 2028.

Could you imagine? Is that the future or what.

I wish you peace, long life, and joy wherever you go.

Happy 2018!

Here is some facts found by BBC.com about Tesla and Einstein, a rather curious read indeed.
Celebrated inventor and physicist Nikola Tesla swore by toe exercises – every night, he’d repeatedly ‘squish’ his toes, 100 times for each foot, according to the author Marc J Seifer. While it’s not entirely clear exactly what that exercise involved, Tesla claimed it helped to stimulate his brain cells.

The most prolific mathematician of the 20th Century, Paul Erdos, preferred a different kind of stimulant: amphetamine, which he used to fuel 20-hour number benders. When a friend bet him $500 that he couldn’t stop for a month, he won but complained “You’ve set mathematics back a month”.

(28 EDITOR’s NOTE) Hey guys – don’t do amphetamines. It does help some people, but only if you suffer without it. My experience is it effects long term memory. If you were a real brilliant person you would use herbs, medicine, and healing elements in the highest regard. Try to avoid chemicals if at all possible. **

Newton, meanwhile, bragged about the benefits of celibacy. When he died in 1727, he had transformed our understanding of the natural world forever and left behind 10 million words of notes; he was also, by all accounts, still a virgin (Tesla was also celibate, though he later claimed he fell in love with a pigeon).

Like it or not, our daily habits have a powerful impact on our brains

Many of the world’s most brilliant scientific minds were also fantastically weird. From Pythagoras’ outright ban on beans to Benjamin Franklin’s naked ‘air baths’, the path to greatness is paved with some truly peculiar habits.

But what if these are more than superficial facts? Scientists are increasingly realising that intelligence is less about sheer genetic luck than we tend to think. According to the latest review of the evidence, around 40% of what distinguishes the brainiac’s from the blockheads in adulthood is environmental. Like it or not, our daily habits have a powerful impact on our brains, shaping their structure and changing the way we think.

Of all history’s great minds, arguably the master of combining genius with unusual habits was Albert Einstein – so what better person to study for clues to mind-enhancing behaviours to try ourselves? He taught us how to squeeze energy out of atoms, so maybe, just maybe, he might be able to teach us a thing or two about how to squeeze the most out of our tiny mortal brains. Could there be any benefits in following Einstein’s sleep, diet, and even fashion choices?

10 HOURS OF SLEEP AND ONE-SECOND NAPS

It’s common knowledge that sleep is good for your brain – and Einstein took this advice more seriously than most. He reportedly slept for at least 10 hours per day – nearly one and a half times as much as the average American today (6.8 hours). But can you really slumber your way to a sharper mind?

The author John Steinbeck once said: “It is a common experience that a problem difficult at night is resolved in the morning after the committee of sleep has worked on it.”

Many of the most radical breakthroughs in human history, including the periodic table, the structure of DNA and Einstein’s theory of special relativity, have supposedly occurred while their discoverer was unconscious. The latter came to Einstein while he was dreaming about cows being electrocuted. But is this really true?

Back in 2004, scientists at the University of Lubeck, Germany, tested the idea with a simple experiment. First they trained volunteers to play a number game. Most gradually got the hang of it with practice, but by far the quickest way to improve was to uncover a hidden rule. When the students were tested again eight hours later, those who had been allowed to sleep were more than twice as likely to gain insight into the rules than those who had remained awake.

Those who have more spindle events tend to have greater ‘fluid intelligence’

When we fall asleep, the brain enters a series of cycles. Every 90-120 minutes the brain fluctuates between light sleep, deep sleep and a phase associated with dreaming, known as Rapid Eye Movement (REM), which until recently was thought to play the leading role in learning and memory. But this isn’t the full story. “Non-REM sleep has been a bit of a mystery, but we spend about 60% of our night in this type of sleep,” says Stuart Fogel, a neuroscientist at the University of Ottawa.

Non-REM sleep is characterized by bursts of fast brain activity, so called ‘spindle events’ because of the spindle-shaped zigzag the waves trace on an EEG. A normal night’s sleep will involve thousands of these, each lasting no longer than a few seconds. “This is really the gateway to other stages of sleep – the more you sleep, the more of these events you’ll have,” he says.

Spindle events begin with a surge of electrical energy generated by the rapid firing of structures deep in the brain. The main culprit is the thalamus, an oval shaped region which acts as the brain’s main ‘switching centre’, sending incoming sensory signals in the right direction. While we’re sleeping, it acts like an internal earplug, scrambling external information to help you stay asleep. During a spindle event, the surge travels up to the brain’s surface and then back down again to complete a loop.

Intriguingly, those who have more spindle events tend to have greater ‘fluid intelligence’ – the ability to solve new problems, use logic in new situations, and identify patterns – the kind Einstein had in spades. “They don’t seem related to other types of intelligence, such as the ability to memorize facts and figures, so it’s really specific to these reasoning skills,” says Fogel. This ties in nicely with Einstein’s disdain for formal education and advice to “never memorize anything which you can look up”.

And though the more you sleep, the more spindle events you’ll have, this doesn’t necessarily prove that more sleep is beneficial. It’s a chicken and egg scenario: do some people have more spindle events because they are smart, or are they smart because they have more spindle events? The jury is still out, but a recent study showed that night-time sleep in women – and napping in men – can improve reasoning and problem solving skills. Crucially, the boost to intelligence was linked to the presence of spindle events, which only occurred during night-time sleep in women and daytime slumbers in men.

It’s not yet known why spindle events would be helpful, but Fogel thinks it may have something to do with the regions which are activated. “We’ve found that the same regions that generate spindles – the thalamus and the cortex [the brain’s surface] – well, these are the areas which support the ability to solve problems and apply logic in new situations,” he says.

Luckily for Einstein, he also took regular naps. According to apocryphal legend, to make sure he didn’t overdo it he’d recline in his armchair with a spoon in his hand and a metal plate directly beneath. He’d allow himself to drift off for a second, then – bam! – the spoon would fall from his hand and the sound of it hitting the plate would wake him up.

DAILY WALKS

Einstein’s daily walk was sacred to him. While he was working at Princeton University, New Jersey, he’d walk the mile and a half journey there and back. He followed in the footsteps of other diligent walkers, including Darwin who went for three 45 minute walks every day.

These constitutionals weren’t just for fitness – there’s mountains of evidence that walking can boost memory, creativity and problem-solving. For creativity at least, walking outside is even better. But why?

When you think about it, it doesn’t make a lot of sense. Walking distracts the brain from more cerebral tasks, and forces it to focus on putting one foot in front of the other and not falling over. Enter ‘transient hypofrontality’ – translated into basic English, this impressive mouthful basically means temporarily toning down the activity in certain parts of the brain. In particular, the frontal lobes, which are involved in higher processes such as memory, judgement and language.

By turning it down a notch, the brain adopts a totally different style of thinking – one which may lead to insights you wouldn’t get at your desk. There isn’t any evidence for this explanation of walking’s benefits yet, but it’s a tantalizing idea.

EATING SPAGHETTI

So what do geniuses eat? Alas, it’s not clear what fueled Einstein’s extraordinary mind, though the internet somewhat dubiously claims it was spaghetti. He did once joke that his favorite things about Italy were “spaghetti and [mathematician] Levi-Civita”, so we’ll go with that.

Though carbohydrates have got a bad rep, as always, Einstein was spot on. It’s well known that the brain is a food-guzzling greedy guts, consuming 20% of the body’s energy though it only accounts for 2% of its weight (Einstein’s may have been even less – his brain weighed just 1,230g, compared to an average of around 1,400g). Just like the rest of the body, the brain prefers to snack on simple sugars, such as glucose, which have been broken down from carbohydrates. Neurons require an almost-continuous supply and will only accept other energy sources when it’s really desperate. And therein lies a problem.

Despite this sweet tooth, the brain has no way of storing any energy, so when blood glucose levels drop, it quickly runs out. “The body can release some from its own glycogen stores by releasing stress hormones such as cortisol, but these have side-effects,” says Leigh Gibson, a lecturer in psychology and physiology at the University of Roehampton.

Smoking is not advised, Einstein wouldn’t have been aware of all the health risks (Credit: SPL)

These include the familiar light-headedness and confusion we feel when we skip dinner. One study found that those on low carbohydrate diets have slower reaction times and reduced spatial memory – though only in the short-term (after a few weeks, the brain will adapt to salvaging energy from other sources, such as protein).

Sugars can give the brain a valuable boost, but unfortunately this doesn’t mean binging on spaghetti is a good idea. “Typically the evidence suggests that about 25g of carbohydrate is beneficial, but double that and you may actually impair your ability to think,” says Gibson. For perspective, that’s around 37 strands of spaghetti, which is a lot less than it sounds (around half as much as the recommended portion). “It’s not as simple a story as it sounds,” says Gibson.

SMOKING A PIPE

Today, the many health risks of smoking are widely known, so this is not a habit that it would be wise to follow. But Einstein was a hardened pipe smoker, known as much around campus for the cloud of smoke which followed him as for his theories. He famously loved to smoke, believing it “contributes to a somewhat calm and objective judgment in all human affairs.” He’d even pick cigarette butts off the street and stuff the remaining tobacco into his pipe.

Not really the behavior of a genius, but in his defense, though evidence had been mounting since the 1940s, tobacco wasn’t publicly linked to lung cancer and other illnesses until 1962 – seven years after his death.

Today the risks are no secret – smoking stops brain cells forming, thins the cerebral cortex (the wrinkled outer layer responsible for consciousness) and starves the brain of oxygen. It’s fair to say that Einstein was clever despite this habit – not because of it.

But there is one final mystery. An analysis of 20,000 adolescents in the United States, whose habits and health were followed for 15 years, found that irrespective of age, ethnicity or education, more intelligent children grow up to smoke more cigarettes, more frequently, than the rest of us. Scientists still don’t know why this is, though intriguingly it’s not true everywhere – in the UK, smokers tend to have lower IQs.

Who needs socks? They're generally relatively unnecessary (Credit: Getty Images)

NO SOCKS

No list of Einstein’s eccentricities would be complete without a mention of his passionate aversion to socks. “When I was young,” he wrote in a letter to his cousin – and later, wife – Elsa, “I found out that the big toe always ends up making a hole in a sock. So I stopped wearing socks.” Later in life, when he couldn’t find his sandals he’d wear Elsa’s sling backs instead.

As it turns out, rocking the hipster look probably didn’t do Einstein any favors. Regrettably, there haven’t been any studies looking directly at the impact of going sock-less, but changing into casual clothing, as opposed to a more formal outfit, has been linked to poor performance on tests of abstract thinking.

And what better way to end that with some advice from the man himself. “The important thing is not to stop questioning; curiosity has its own reason for existing,” he told LIFE magazine in 1955.

Failing that, you might try some toe exercises. Who knows – they might just work. And aren’t you dying to find out?

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.

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)

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??

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.

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.
The synodic period which is much more widely known is the time for the Moon to go through 1 complete phase cycle. For example, the time from one Full Moon to the next averages 29.5 days.

The factor pairs of 28 are:

1 × 28,  2 × 14,  and  4 × 7

The number 28 has two prime factors which are 2nd 7.

The product of prime factors for the number 28 is 2 × 2 × 7.

The number 28 is also a perfect number since it can be written as the sum of its divisors excluding itself (1 + 2 + 4 + 7 + 14)

The first ten multiples of 28 are 28, 56, 84, 112, 140, 168, 196, 224,252 and 280. All of these multiples are even numbers.
