Bob Podoloksy on Maximizing Peace and Prosperity Through Truth and Creativity


Bob Podolksy is the son of well-known physicist Boris Podolsky who along with Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen wrote a paper on Action at a distance in 1935. Bob talks about Peace, Prosperity, and Freedom via maximizing Truth, Awareness, Love, and Creativity (TALC). Bobs talk is about ways of getting to peace, the importance of organization, entropy vs evolution, and dimensional quadrature.

Introduction

There has been much discussion about “property rights”, “human rights”, “self-ownership” and the “non-aggression principle” or N.A.P. Most of the ideas on these subjects that seem worth discussing are existential in nature. For instance one often hears questions like,

  • Does “property” actually exist?

  • Do “rights” actually exist?

  • Does anyone really “own” anything?

  • What does it mean to both “be oneself” and “own oneself”?

  • …and what implications do these questions have concerning the validity of the N.A.P.?

While many academic philosophy buffs like to argue who has the best answers to such questions, the significance of their arguments is more a matter of ego aggrandizement than one of applying ethics in a practical way.

This body of subject-matter leaped into the minds of modern libertarians when Murray Rothbard introduced it as a way of understanding the libertarian perspective. Briefly, he opined that self-ownership is self evident… axiomatic. And based on that assumed logical starting point, deduced that therefore anything one’s body produces is also one’s own property. From this he went on to define property rights and expanded the definition to include anything found unclaimed in nature or acquired by voluntary trade. His logical equivalent of the N.A.P. was a further logical outcome of this thought path.

Rothbard’s reasoning is a good example of weak logic leading to correct conclusions. Some of the weaknesses include:

  • Rights” are not actually things…you can’t put them in a wheelbarrow.

  • The clear definition of “property acquisition” doesn’t actually explain the existential relationship between property and its owner.

  • And, most importantly, most people don’t intuit self-ownership, because they were indoctrinated as preschoolers to believe that their parents “owned” them, and later their teachers “owned them”, and in many cases their employers subsequently “own” them.

A consequent weakness in the N.A.P. is the common belief that it constitutes a complete ethic rather than a principle based on an ethic. While the N.A.P. forbids behavior deemed “bad”, it fails to define behavior deemed “good”. Thus use of the N.A.P. as the sole determinant of ethical behavior leaves much to be desired.

An Alternative Algorithm for Ethical Behavior

For a much more comprehensive discussion on this topic, check out this article on Ethics, Law & Government. Here I summarize some of the article’s conclusions without including the derivations covered in the linked article.

An act is said to be ethical (synonymously good, just, right, or righteous) if it increases truth, awareness, love, or creativity for at least one person, including the person acting, without limiting or diminishing any of these resources for anyone. An act that does diminish any of these resources for someone is said to be unethical (or synonymously bad, wrong, unjust or evil). An act that has neither effect is said to be “ethically trivial”.

Based on the foregoing definition, is is a simple exercise in logic to derive a set a dozen or so principles that can assist one in making ethical decisions on a day-to-day or moment-to-moment basis. Foremost among these is the fact that ethical “ends” require “ethical means” …which in turn must be ethical ends in themselves.

At this point, I hope you can see that the N.A.P. effectively defines unethical acts while leaving trivial acts and ethical acts undefined. So an act that complies with the N.A.P. could be either ethical or trivial. For anyone wishing to live their life as ethically as possible the N.A.P. fails to deliver the best guidance available. In other words the N.A.P. tells us what not to do but leaves us in the dark concerning what to do.

The ethic that I’ve recommended above not only tells us what specific resources are most worth amplifying, but it also opens the door to a way of organizing human institutions so that they make consistently ethical decisions. For a comprehensive explanation of how this can work, I invite you to read FLOURISH…An Alternative to Government and Other Hierarchies.

CHOOSING AN ETHICstar of laskmi

by: Bob Podolsky

Why choose an Ethic?

It’s a truism that most people wants to “better themselves” – that is to better the circumstances of their lives. Philosophies and religions are all derived from this fact. When one adopts a valid ethic, this goal can be realized or “manifested”. The result is a life characterized by peace, prosperity, and freedom… it feels like having a compass in one’s head… important decisions become simple…work feels like play… relationships “bloom”… and the day-to-day challenges and vicissitudes of life seem much less daunting. This is the state-of-mind in which one actually “becomes the change” one wishes to see in the world.

Introduction

As a young man I believed two things about ethics – one true, and the other false:

  1. I believed the choice of an ethic is “arbitrary” – because one can choose any ethic one likes; and

  2. I believed therefore that the entire subject of ethics is trivial – of no real use in making behavioral decisions.

As I learned much later, statement (1) above is true; but statement (2) is false. Lets examine the concept of an ethic a little more closely, and then apply it with some logic to a few actual ethics.

Specifying an Ethic

Every ethic consists of 2 parts that must be defined in order to fully specify a particular ethic:

  1. A Value that the ethic is intended to increase, and

  2. A belief or belief system that tells one how to behave in order to increase the desired value.

For instance, one might choose an ethic that values prosperity and operates on the belief that prosperity can be maximized by getting a job working for 40 years for a big corporation after, many years of education. As absurd as this belief is, in combination with the value, it is, nonetheless, an ethic – by definition – albeit not a very good one. When this is true, the belief fails to support the value, and the ethic is said to be “invalid”.

Ethical Validity

An invalid ethic fails to produce more of the value sought – and in many instances actually has the opposite effect, diminishing the desired value. An example would be the Soviet Ethic that sought to produce “material well-being for all”. The accompanying belief was that this outcome could be achieved through the adoption of a tyrannical communist regime. The result was: almost universal poverty. The ethic was clearly invalid.

The “No Ethic” Ethic

There are those who are so enthralled by the arbitrariness of choosing an ethic, that they see no reason to consciously make such a choice. This of course is just another kind of ethic. In this case both the value and the belief are random. And since there is no discernible value sought, the random belief fails to produce a value – so the ethic can be said to be invalid. On the other hand, since the random belief does produce random values, one could describe the ethic as valid.

As I see it, the real value sought is the illusion of having little or no responsibility for the adopter’s experience of his life. And adopting this ethic certainly supports and increases that illusion, so it might best be called the “lazy man’s ethic” – and it is technically valid, though of no practical use.

The “Golden Rule” and “Universally Preferred Behavior”

I’ve lumped these two ethics together because they both suffer from the same weakness – namely, there is no “universally preferred behavior”. To see this clearly, imagine you have an encounter with a sado-masochist. He is someone who prefers to have others inflict pain on him. Do you really want him to do to you what he wants you to do to him? Unless you are also a sado-masochist, the answer is “probably not”.

While you might suppose that sado-masochism is too uncommon to be of real relevance, the fact is otherwise. In my 40 years experience as a psychotherapist, At least 20% of the population worldwide displays a significant leaning towards such preferences. While the degree to which such a person actually acts on such impulses varies greatly from person to person, the fact of this phenomenon’s existence proves the Golden Rule and the Universally Preferred Behavior to be invalid ethics.

The “Non-Aggression Principle”

Let’s now examine an ethic that is valid, but not optimal. Called the “Non-Aggression Principle”, the NAP states:

any initiation of coercive action (that is, any aggressive act) is ethically wrong.

The NAP ethic embraces freedom from violence as the value; and the belief is that this can be achieved by refraining from initiating violence or the threat of violence – while retaining the freedom to use limited violence in self defense.

If everyone restrained themselves from initiating violence, violence would indeed disappear, and no one would be the victim of violence. However, many of us learn violence from our parents when we are very young – usually before the age of 5 years – and we will still encounter violence until child-rearing becomes generally improved. My experience leads me to say those who were the abused as children, are the most are the biggest abusers as adults.

A more serious weakness of this ethic is that the value chosen is something not wanted – something to be avoided. In other words the value is a negative rather than a positive. It’s based on what we don’t want instead of what we do want. So while the ethic is valid, it doesn’t address what we must do to increase a number of other equally important values. So let’s look at the best ethic I have found to date.

The Ethics of Ethics

As everyone seems to know, ethics are the means by which one decides what is “good” and how to behave…how to live one’s life. What is slightly less obvious is the fact that the choice of an ethic is itself subject to an ethic-based decision. This second-level ethic might be called a “meta-ethic”. In similar fashion, one can construct any number of metan ethics…i.e. meta-meta, meta-meta-meta, and so forth. So the question this fact engenders is, “where does one start, in formulating a worthwhile ethic?”

To answer this question (quick before the theologians jump in) we can simply choose what I call a “universal referent” – which is to say, an objectively observable phenomenon of obvious value everywhere and at all times. For this choice I strongly suggest the phenomenon we call “evolution”… the opposite of which is “entropy”. This choice has several advantages.

  • The phenomenon is objectively (scientifically) observable and is certainly of great intrinsic value.

  • The choice of this referent directly amplifies truth, awareness, love, and creativity… and indirectly creates peace, prosperity, happiness, and freedom.

  • For those who prefer to involve the “god” concept in their ethics, one can simply define “god” as that toward which life evolves. Doing so is completely compatible with the valid portions of the “Christian Ethic”.

So let’s take a closer look at the formulation of such an ethic.

The Evolutionary Ethic

For starters, there are a number of values that are logically equivalent to one another:

  • Truth (scientifically verifiable) + Objective

  • Awareness & Personal evolution

  • Love

  • Creativity

TALC resources are logically equivalent to one another in that increasing any one of them always increases them all – AND – limiting or diminishing any one of them always limits or diminishes them all. Any of these values can be used to create a valid ethic.

Here’s an example based on the value of creativity and on the following belief system:

An act is ethical if it increases creativity for at least one person (including the person acting), without limiting or diminishing creativity for anyone.

In the definition above one can substitute any of the other values in the preceding (TALC) list for the word “creativity” and still have a valid ethic.

I have yet to see or find a valid ethic that is not logically equivalent to this one. Also, it should be noted that, counter-intuitively, no one has yet created a valid ethic based on the values of:

  • Freedom

  • Happiness

  • Pleasure

  • Power

  • Wealth

Many attempts to do so have been made; but to my knowledge none has succeeded.

Conclusion

For a more comprehensive discussion of ethics and their effects on the human condition, you are invited to read Ethics, Law, & Government on the Titanians.org website. The BORG has told you all your life to obey the law and to revere the government. Is it giving you what you want? Perhaps it’s time to re-examine that decision.

SOUL-BONDING: What Is It?

 

Soul Bonding: What is it?

by Robert Podolsky

Introduction

“Soul-Bonding” is based on my 25 years in private practice as a psychotherapist. Soul Bonding encompasses everything I know about how people connect with one another, all the obstacles to such intimacy, the effects of these obstacles, and all the means available to minimize or eliminate the long-term effects of those obstacles. As such, Soul-Bonding may be seen as a snapshot of the current state of our cultural evolution and as a road-map to the future evolution of that evolution.

While the above statement is global and comprehensive, it is also rather abstract, whereas the efforts required to realize the potential benefits of cultural evolution are very personal. It is at this personal level that each of us has the opportunity to enhance the quality of our lives, and that of those around us ? our families, neighborhoods, communities, and regions. I use the word “regions” rather than “cities”, “counties”, “states” and “nations” because, as human culture evolves, these distinctions are likely to become obsolete and irrelevant ? making the words effectively meaningless.

The Mother-Child Bond

The most important interpersonal bond in the life of a human being is the bond between a mother and a child during the first five years of the child’s life. And it is the earliest of these bonds that is the most important in determining how the child’s awareness, character, and attitudes develop. Recently it has been proven that the neurological development of a child’s brain is profoundly affected by the quality of these earliest bonds ? especially those formed during the first few hours outside the womb.

So how are you to know if your early bonding was adequate for your own mental health? What do you remember? Do you remember your birth? If you’re a man, do you recall your circumcision? Can you remember how long you had to wait to be fed when you were hungry as an infant? Was your toilet training pleasant or arduous? Did your parents let you get away with saying “no” to them sometimes when you were a toddler? And how did your parent of the opposite gender respond to your earliest expression of sexual feelings when you were 5 or 6 years old?

Any experience that you can’t remember is an experience that was intensely unpleasant, and your subconscious is protecting you from the memory as if the experience occurred just yesterday ? and the risk of a repetition (though totally unrealistic) has warped your emotional development, thereby interfering with your ability to live a full and satisfying life. Such warpage is, at least partly, recoverable in most cases ? as are the corresponding memories.

Of Lethal Concern

Consider this fact: in every instance of the initiation of violence by a child or an adult, the perpetrator suffered some form of violence as a small child. Absent the childhood trauma, the adult will never initiate violence against another person. The importance of this fact cannot be over-stated. Governments the world over are the beneficiaries of violence done to children ? because in its absence, no one would volunteer to join the military; nor to become a law enforcer. Of course, in the absence of childhood trauma, there would be no plausible justification for the existence of armies and police forces ? or, for that matter, governments. It is for this reason that it behooves us to eliminate the most common childhood traumas from our societal culture.

Where To Start

If we are to eliminate violence we must become better parents. Unfortunately we are not taught as youngsters how to do this. Parenting is arguably the most important and least adequate part of education. And there is a “chicken and egg” phenomenon that interferes. Although good parenting can be learned in adolescence, most people of child-rearing age are ignorant of what is involved. By the time we really start to “get it”, we are more likely to be grandparents than parents. That means we are too late to help our children. Ouch!

Fortunately, with time and effort we can heal most of the wounds of childhood trauma in adults ? and then these adults can educate the younger generation as they enter their child-rearing years. If we can complete this process before our ruling classes destroy us, we’ll have initiated a massive shift for the better in our cultural evolution.

Personal Benefits

Participants in this educational program can expect to realize some or all of the following benefits:

  • Increased access to truth, love and creativity
  • Enhanced communication skills
  • More satisfying relationships
  • A powerful and useful understanding of ethics
  • Greater comfort living in one’s own skin
  • Renewed enthusiasm for life
  • Extreme applicability to organizational development
  • Expanded financial opportunities

How To Start

Creative Consulting Services, Inc. is an educational branch of the Titania HoloMat that is now offering presentations, inexpensive experiential workshops and ongoing training in Soul-Bonding. The curriculum encompasses:

  • Childhood development
  • The types of traumas and their effects,
  • Recognizing traumas,

First Study in 40 Years Legitimizes Medical LSD

The reality is that all psychoactive drugs can be abused with negative effects.  Not to however is the road of science and good medicine while discovering what benefits can be delivered.  At the moment we rediscovering what we already knew and taking a refresher.

What it does mean is that the toolkit is quickly expanding and most of all this will be available for therapeutic reasons.

It appears that a host of mental disturbances can be described as imprinting problems.  Some of these drugs allow that effect to be countered in conjunction with well thought out therapy.  This will be a huge blessing that may well remove the weakest third of such problems and may surprise us with the rest.  Just getting rid of borderline cases frees up effort to be applied.

This appears to be a low threshold but I think that prevents later development of sever cases.

First Study in 40 Years Legitimizes LSD for Psychotherapeutic Use

March 4, 2014 |

Buck Rogers, Staff Writer

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2014/03/04/first-study-40-years-legitimizes-lsd-psychotherapeutic-use/

The public image problem for psychedelic substances is finally correcting itself, due in large part to the willingness of some scientific communities to ignore taboos and press ahead with modern research into the efficacy of their use as therapeutic medicines. Cannabis is the front-runner in the campaign to end the war on consciousness and open the door for psychoactive substances as publicly available medicine. Psilocybin is now touted as a natural and potent remedy for chronic depression, and the healing benefits of the South American medicine Ayahuasca are widely discussed in the Western world, and is even showing promise as an anti-cancer agent.

Now, 40 years of prohibition against medical research into the psychological benefits of synthetic compound lysergic acid dyethlyamide (LSD) has finally come to an end with positive results. Peter Gasser, M.D., a private practice psychiatrist in Solothurn, Switzerland has recently published the significant findings of a recent study of the effects that LSD has on patients with certain anxiety disorders.

“A double-blind, randomized, active placebo-controlled pilot study was conducted to examine safety and efficacy of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD)-assisted psychotherapy in 12 patients with anxiety associated with life- threatening diseases. Treatment included drug-free psychotherapy sessions supplemented by two LSD-assisted psychotherapy sessions 2 to 3 weeks apart.” [Source]

The study is considered to be a success because while showing no lasting adverse reactions to treatment with LSD, study participants showed significant and sustained long-term reductions in state anxiety over a 12-month period:

“These results indicate that when administered safely in a methodologically rigorous medically supervised psychotherapeutic setting, LSD can reduce anxiety, suggesting that larger controlled studies are warranted.”

Peter, an Austrian subject in this study remarked, “My LSD experience brought back some lost emotions and ability to trust, lots of psychological insights, and a timeless moment when the universe didn’t seem like a trap, but like a revelation of utter beauty.” This statement is characteristic of many people’s experience with LSD, both clinical and recreational, and brings further testimony to the case for legitimizing these medicines for public use.

The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) has for years been the forerunner in the advocacy of legalization of research into the medical benefits of psychoactive substances. In a recently released MAPS press-alert the organization notes that, “there is considerable previous human experience using LSD in the context of psychotherapy. From the 1950s through the early 1970s, psychiatrists, therapists, and researchers administered LSD to thousands of people as a treatment for alcoholism, as well as for anxiety and depression in people with advanced stage cancer.”

Originally formulated by the renowned Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman, LSD produces an effect that can amplify consciousness and bring about positive lasting changes in perception and one’s feeling of ‘connectedness’ to the universe and the web of life that supports human beings:

“LSD in oral doses of more than 100 Kg produces vivid psychosensory changes, including increased sensory perception, illusionary changes of perceived objects, synesthesia, and enhanced mental imagery. Affectivity is intensified. Thoughts are accelerated, with their scope usually broadened including new associations and modified interpretation and meanings of relationships and objects. Hypermnesia and enhanced memory processes typically occur. Ego identification is usually weakened. The general state of consciousness can be compared to a daydream, but with pronounced affectivity and enhanced production of inner stimuli (Grof, 1975; Hintzen and Passie, 2010).” [Source]

Research into the psychotherapeutic benefits of LSD began in the 1950′s but was brought to an abrupt halt in 1966 when LSD was made illegal by the Unites States government, ostensibly due to overuse of LSD as a recreational substance by America’s youth. The Executive Director of MAPS, Rick Doblin, Ph.D. states that, “this study is historic and marks a rebirth of investigation into LSD-assisted psychotherapy. The positive results and evidence of safety clearly show why additional, larger studies are needed.”

In a world dominated by scientific materialism and marked by a war on consciousness the criminalizes the free exploration of one’s own mind and body, legitimate and positive scientific research is the key that can unlock long-held cultural taboos and misunderstandings about the nature of psychoactive substances.

Steve Jobs on coming reset to Bitcoin

Sovereign Man modified by Morpheus original article
Wisdom from Steve Jobs on the coming system reset

April 30, 2014
Santiago, Chile / Mesa, Arizona

Hi all fans of Simon Black and Sovereign Man.  I got this in my email. After I read it and have to suggest that Simon doesn’t carry his thought to the logical conclusion.  BitCoin IS the future, not metals or Banks in other jurisdictions are still part of the BORG and for that reason they are not to be trusted in any way shape or form.  Bitcoins properly dealt with are safer than the gold in Fort Knox, if there is any there, that is.

“Money” is a concept of the mind, it doesn’t exist in the real world.  It is only exists as construct of the mind.  Here is the Progression:

Agrarian Age: In this era there was no: electricity, Internet, cars, trucks, planes, trains, running water, Walmart, Circle K, running water in your house, newspapers, or mail services, some people thought the world was flat.  This age is marked by Barter, and with the rise of Roman Empire the “invention” of gold and silver as “money”. Keep in mind during    However in their lust for expansion and debasement of the coin through clipping and non precious alloys being added caused hyperinflation.  This gave rise to the dark ages with control going to the Roman Catholic Church, and all the Flat Earth sillyness.

Industrial Age: Moving out of the dark ages was marked with the “invention” of Paper Money with the “invention” of the printing press, they say they were printing Bibles, “Riiight”,I say “they were printing money Guttenberg wasn’t printing Bibles’. That coverup story is for the slaves and no different than the cock and bull 9/11 coverup.” This age is marked with the enslavement of humanity to debt, debt that is created by the banks to pit human against human to create governments to “referee” all disputes.  Of course they never indict themselves for criminal behavior.

Digital Age: This age is marked with the “invention” of the “computer” and the “Internet.” These “inventions” created a totally new kind of money one that could not exist with the previous systems to build on.   That new technology created a crypto-currency known as Bitcoin. There are other alt coins like:  Litecoin, Namecoin, Mastercoin to name a few.  To attempt to go back to the past and use the technology from an age that is so long gone is a mistake. I like to ask people “How come you don’t have a phone with a really long cord instead of a cell phone?”. The simple reason is because the new technology, the cell phone, replaced the corded phone so no one uses corded phones much any more.  To have be against bitcoins is like being against cell phones when they came out.  Those who were the Luddites back in the beginning of the industrial revolution quickly disappeared or got ran over.  We can’t take Gold and Silver into space its way too heavy.

Sure its a good idea to have gold and silver in case the aliens or the machines turn off the power, however a prudent person would also want to stock up on 9mm 40 and 45 cal double ought buckshot, food , water and other supplies. When you look at the progression of the price and the market cap a person would have to be out of your mind to not get involved with bitcoin.

So read both articles and see which one comes to a better conclusion.  Simon hit me up if you like m-o-r-p-h-e-u-s<at>t-i-t-a-n-i-a-n-s<dot>org

Steve Jobs used to tell a very inspiring story about an article he read in Scientific American when he was a boy.

He said that the article measured the ‘efficiency of locomotion’ of various species– essentially how many calories different animals spend getting from Point A to Point B.
The most efficient of all? Not human beings. Not by a long shot. It was the condor. The condor expended the least amount of energy per meter or kilometer traveled. Human beings were pretty far down the list.

But as Jobs recounts, the authors had the foresight to also test the efficiency of a human being on a bicycle. And this absolutely blew all the other species away.

Jobs later said that this was incredibly influential on his thinking because he realized that human beings were fundamentally tool creators. We take our situation, however grim or rudimentary, and we make it better.

There’s undoubtedly a lot of bad news in the world these days. Some people realize it. Others refuse to believe it and stick their heads in the sand. Our century-old industrial age monetary system is unraveling before our very eyes.

This absurd arcane structure in which we award a tiny central banking elite with the dictatorial power to control the money supply in their sole discretion is now drowning the world in paper currency.

ALL financial markets are manipulated by central banks, predominantly the Federal Reserve. One human or possibly a reptile in a human woman outfit — Janet Yellen– has the power to affect the prices of nearly everything on the planet, from the wholesale price of coffee in Colombia to the cost of a luxury flat in Hong Kong.

Moreover, politicians in some of the most ‘advanced’ economies in the world (Japan, the US, France, the UK, etc.) have accumulated so much debt that they have to borrow money just to pay interest on the money they have already borrowed.  Most would call this insanity.

They are and continuing to saddling future unborn generations with a debt that is SATANIC.

They wage endless, costly wars, murdering millions. They spy on their citizens. They spray poisons in the air. They inject fluoride, a carcinogen into the water. They arrest people for the burning a plant.  They tell people what they can and cannot put in their bodies. They confiscate private property and wages at the point of a gun.

They abuse the population with legions of heavily armed government agents (thugs). They conjure so many codes, rules, regulations, laws, and executive orders that it becomes totally impossible for any individual to exist without being guilty of some innocuous, victimless crime.

And they arrogantly masquerade the entire ruse as a FREE SOCIETY.

>None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free.Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

This system is on the way out. It will reset.

Like feudalism before, our system will go the way of the historical dust bin. And future historians will look back (just as we view feudalism) and say “why did they put up with that nonsense…?

This reset is nothing to fear. Human beings are incredible creatures who have a long-term track record of growth. We rise. We progress.

Or more appropriately, we ride bicycles. We create tools to overcome our challenges. We create new forms of currency.  The new currency will be in the form of a crypto-currency. The most prevalent in the world is called Bitcoin. You need to wake up and learn why Bitcoin is so much better than the current model.

Your industrial age country’s currency (paper debt money) is being rapidly debased, you could hold some savings in a different currency. Or you may hold agrarian currency (precious metals).  Or move into the future with Digital money…Bitcoin!

Freedoms are being rapidly degraded in almost every country in the world!  Make a decision to stop funding the destruction they cause. Get your bitcoins now.!

I liken all of these to wearing a seatbelt– another one of humanity’s marvelous tools.

You will be better off for holding your funds in a bitcoin wallet, where your money is safer there than all the gold in fort Knox, that is if there is any gold there at all. Or for wearing a seatbelt. But if the worst happens, it can make all the difference in the world.

Buckle up with Bitcoin.

You never know an accident is about to happen until it’s too late. But the warning signs of danger are all there: it’s raining and the road is slippery, fog has descended and visibility is severely limited. It’s an ominous evening.

Make sure you have your Bitcoin seatbelt on.

Until some other time in the Future
Morpheus, peace out. Thank you Simon Black!

Feb 042014
 

Morpheus is invited to give a presentation on Bitcoin. Being its something to wrap your mind around, he talks about what is money actually, how the incredible fraud that the federal reserve perpetuates, and most importantly how to take advantage of Bitcoin’s incredible properties.

Bitcoins are transfered from person to person without a third part intervener like a bank or government. No one or no organization can freeze your account, there are no cost or barriers to being involved, zero or low cost to transfer money even internationally and there are no arbitrary limits.


Because of the rate of how bitcoin is mined it produces a deflationary currency contrary to the inflationary currency that is currently being produced by all other nations. The reason all countries like inflation is because when they borrow money they are able to repay the debt with “dollars” “euros” “yen” that is controlled by a third party. These evil central planners like the fact they can line their own pockets and the pockets of their friends with money created out of nothing.

Because the market cannot be fooled, the market responds to the fraudulent creation of money by prices going up. This is form of tax that is very easy to hide. In fact, Thomas Jefferson said or wrote:

“If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children wake up homeless on the continent their Fathers conquered…I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies… The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs.”

Because we are moving into the future, one day at a time, it is normal to conclude that humans are going to find solutions to problems. For example, paper money did not always exist. At one point in humanity evolution, those that traded, carried their gold or silver in a bag on their belt. Well, having a big bag of gold around your belt was a great way to advertise how much you wanted to be robbed.  Hey, you have to go to sleep sometime right?

To prevent from being robbed, many people kept their gold or silver with a goldsmith / silversmith. These were people who where trusted and could afford to have other trusted people keep watch over his inventory as well as the precious metals from those who entrusted the goldsmith with their gold.  Of course the Goldsmith, received a fee for watching over other peoples precious metals. In exchange the Goldsmith / Silversmith, would give those people a receipt for the metals that he would be entrusted to protect.  It was found that people then started to trade the receipts just as well as the trade of the precious metals. This was the precursor to modern banking.

Then what happen is the Gutenberg invented the printing press. They say he was printing bibles, I say that was a cover story, just like 9/11. With the “invention” of the printing press, this allowed the banks and governments to create a giant FRAUD and at the same time cover it up. The famous Economist John Maynard Keynes said:

By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens. There is no subtler, no surer means of overturning the existing basis of society than to debauch the currency. The process engages all the hidden forces of economic law on the side of destruction, and does it in a manner which not one man in a million is able to diagnose.

What bitcoin does effectively is level the playing field for everyone. The great news is that because it is leveling the field there is great opportunity to CASH in on the the leveling of the playing field. For example back in July 10 2010 YOU and I too, could have bought Bitcoins for Frn$ 0.06 but we both missed it. Had you sold those same 1428.5714 bitcoins in July 10 2011 their value in Federal reserve Notes (Frn$)would have been Frn$ 21,285.77 at Frn$14.90 Fast forward to July 10 2012 the value of them would have been about $10k cause the price went down slightly to Frn$ 7.76 still a decent profit. Move forward again 1 year to July 10 2013 and the value was Frn$ 82.26 the value would have been Frn$ 117512.29 Move forward to November 29 2013 at the top of the market those same 1428.5714 bitcoins would be worth…drumroll please… Frn$ 1.59 MILLION Dollars. We both missed that one however I am not going to miss the next big one are YOU???

Morpheus Titania: Businessman, activist, Bitcoin Sales

Morpheus has chosen to live outside the “system” ever since the events of 9/11. At that time he was co-owner of Direct Mail Business known as “The Direct Hit” The company was started in his home. The Company did $300,000 in 2000 and $1.5 Million in sales from January 2001 to August 2001. After the Events of 9/11, first with the “terrorist” of planes being flown into buildings, then with the Anthrax in the mail, September sales were tanking from $250,000 in June and August 2001 to $5,000 in September 2001. With all contracts being canceled all the salesmen quit, cause they weren’t selling anything. With his formerly thriving business imploded, this left Morpheus had a great deal of time on his hands to study the events of 9/11. He came to the irrefutable proof that at bare minimum there was a massive co-ordinated coverup of the events of 9/11. Since that time he has been removing himself more and more from that “SYSTEM”.

Prior to owning The Direct Hit” Morpheus worked at the number 1 Dodge store in the world as a top producing salesman, as well as being a top producing gold certified Fleet manager.

Working outside of the system for over 10 years has lead him to the wonderful qualities of the digital currency known as Bitcoin. Bitcoin has many desirable qualities:

  • Bitcoins are transferred from person to person via the internet.
  • Any amount of Bitcoin can be easily transferred locally or internationally for pennies.
  • Bitcoin transactions happen instantly and the transaction clearing happens in 10 minutes.
  • properly protected Bitcoins are virtually impossible to be steal.
  • A Bitcoin “account” can’t be frozen.
  • Bitcoin has no prerequisites or limits.

Morpheus has been selling Bitcoin with a fervor of a man on a mission. The old decrepit systems of the Banks, Organized Religion and Government (The BORG) are failing humanity at every level. Through the use of Bitcoin, is how the old power structure will be made obsolete. He applies his 20 years of sales and marketing experience to Bitcoin marketing and sales.  Because of his rock solid reputation, He is one of the biggest sellers in the Phoenix area.

Morpheus is now semi retired as a bitcoin trader / entrepreneur. He got started selling in March 2013 when Bitcoin was selling for $31. He has successfully done traded over 1000 bitcoins in the past year. He uses his role as an activist now, to promote the use of Bitcoins by businesses. Business that accept Bitcoin have a unique advantage over other business that do not accept Bitcoin, because there are many people out in the world that have bitcoins and want to spend them at participating merchants.  Not accepting Bitcoin in the future

Because of the unique nature of Bitcoin, it is very possible to acquire sizable wealth by taking advantage of Bitcoins incredible DEFLATIONARY Nature. This means things in the future will cost less than in the past.  This is exactly the opposite of the de Facto system most of us live under.  Many of us know there is a financial shit storm brewing on the horizon. Every single inflationary monitory system the world has ever seen has eventually destroyed itself.  Are we so pompous to believe that human nature is going to be any different now then any other time in history. Do you trust the “government” to save you?

Many of us know, the current status quo system provides a unique relationship between the Banks and the Government that allows these 2 institutions to do anything they want, even when it is to the detriment of humanity.  Bitcoin and crypto-currency is the way We The People, take back control of our lives.  With Bitcoin, Banks are no longer needed. Now, anyone can be a bank and the fees are a whole lot less.  Banks will simply fade away, like the old vinyl record and carburetor companies did, when the CD and fuel injection was introduced. Government bureaucracy will also diminish as they won’t have unlimited resources to implement their fraudlent schemes.

For Businesses, it’s like the Gold Rush or the Internet boom all over again.  Business that accept Bitcoin have significant advantages over business that have yet to take bitcoin.  Many of us know that Credit Cards are insecure, in the past even large institutions like Target and Home Depot have had Credit Card security breaches; with Bitcoin an invalid or counterfiet transaction is statistically IMPOSSIBLE!  Retailers pay between 2-5% for the use of credit cards. Using Bitcoin there is never a fee, unless the merchant wants to convert the Bitcoins to de facto currency like dollars or euros’s. There are Bitcoin exchanges like Coinbase who will convert the Bitcoins into Currency for 1%, although the first million dollars is a zero fee.

Even more importantly than saving money for a business is access to new customers.  Like a said earlier all business have 2 requirements, you have to find new customers and service the ones you have.  The Bitcoin community does all this for you.  Most people involved in Bitcoin want to see it succeed, well in order to have it succeed it has to be promoted.  Whats the best way to promote a new currency, is to use it.  So a business that accepts Bitcoin, is going to automatically earn my business, every time.  Lets take where my office is, in the complex is Ashleigh’s Cafe, she takes Bitcoin because i introduced it to her.  Ashleigh’s Cafe is listed with other Merchants on Airbitz.co It made sense and now every morning I go to her Cafe to get coffee and something to eat and I pay her with Bitcoins.  She wins my business BECAUSE she accepts Bitcoin.  There are business all around town that take Bitcoins, when I need something they offer, I buy it from them.  Whats the expense? Zero.  I had her download an Free app and she is now accepts Bitcoin.

Business that do not convert their Bitcoins into cash get to take advantage of the deflationary nature of Bitcoin.  Even with the huge fluctuations the general trend has been in the for the rise of the price of Bitcoins vs the fiat monetary systems.  For example, the first known Bitcoin trade occurred on May 22, 2010.  On that date, a guy from Fort Lauderdale sent 10,000 Bitcoins to a guy in England, who then bought $30 worth of Pizza, for the guy in Ft. Lauderdale. That established the price at btc 10,000 / $30 = $.003 per Bitcoin. As of this writing the price of Bitcoin is $263.28. so the guy with the 10,000 bitcoins has profit of 2.63 Million dollars!

2014 The Year of Bitcoin

Like it or love it, bitcoin has been a constant theme of headlines for the past year, as 2013 marked its coming of age.

Last year’s nerd money fad has become this year’s most talked about product.

Ultimately, nature abhors a vacuum and with western political leadership an increasingly distant memory, citizens are becoming increasingly restive about the parlous state of financial governance. Throughout the West, the ravages of quantitative easing [QE] have helped the wealthiest prosper, while ordinary citizens have struggled through a grinding economic plight, which has left voters feeling increasingly abandoned by government.

Into this void has stepped something which had been mooted for many years: a popular electronic currency. Bitcoin is filling a gap self-interested central bankers are keen to suggest doesn’t need filling. Establishment media has been wrong-footed as the Copernican Revolution in finance creates not just bitcoin but a series of parallel financial universes where independent money is at the center of commerce, as opposed to government manipulated fiat currency.

Meanwhile, bitcoin may not be the cryptocurrency the world uses in a decade and the biannual obituaries may yet prove right! As 2013 concluded, BTC’s value had multiplied albeit off its highs after the Bank of China endeavored to close the door to the threat of a backdoor floatation of the renminbi.

In reality, BTC is still remarkably small – growing exponentially from about 142 million dollars to circa 8 billion by Christmas. In other words, the total value of bitcoin amounts to the annual GDP of the Bahamas. Clearly bitcoin isn’t economically significant, yet. However, it now has its first ATM and many have bought beers, lattes and even homes with BTC this past year.

Naturally bankers of all shades are scared of losing their monopolist grip on money, yet given the vast inefficiency of their decrepit systems, it is probably already too late. Decentralized money is an idea whose time has come. Bitcoin is the breakthrough currency creating a widespread consciousness that there is an alternative to holding greenbacks, or lugging a trunk full of gold around.

Perhaps the most surprising thing about bitcoin is, in essence, the banality of the arguments. When all else fails, skeptics just cry tulipmania. Indeed, bitcoin bubbled and almost halved in value before the year’s end, but then again, thanks to the idiocy of the banker-government nexus in the last decade, just about every asset bubbled then and a great deal are bubbling now, like art and classic cars, thanks to QE [quantitative easing].

Yes, people steal bitcoins and these thefts are techno-mythologized by scaremongering media. Yet stealing bitcoin is just a virtual variant of traditional pickpocketing. Indeed BTC has been used to finance crime, just like the dear old anonymous bearer bond dollar is beloved of drug cartels. Some American security agencies have expressed concern about their lack of control over bitcoin, but they had an annus horribilis, during which, despite their vast overarching eavesdropping capacity, they still failed to see their own currency woes coming.

While price inflation is the first thing everybody recalls about bitcoin in 2013, what really defines its incredible year was how it slipped out of nerds’ virtual wallets into the mainstream. An 8 billion dollar asset leveraged its value to dominate the headlines and gain widespread recognition. Germany legalized it and many nations acknowledged it – even the US courts. That Norway called it an asset was seen as a dreadful slight; rather it was a splendid incremental step to wider appreciation. In the end, China and Thailand pushed back against the bitcoin juggernaut. The latter is hardly of global economic significance, while the former maintains a closed currency regime.

The year of bitcoin began with the currency on the fringes of digital society, but by the end of the year it was clearly “merging with the mainstream”. Decentralized crytocurrency is still in its infancy but the argument against central bankers’ follies is being won across the globe. After all, you can’t ‘clip’ bitcoin to degrade its value, nor can you inflate its value with QE or other flawed government policies.

2013 ended with citizens increasingly alienated from government as a monetary ally and edging closer to “In Bitcoin we Trust”. Bitcoin itself may only be the first stage of a revolution, similar perhaps to the Netscape browser at the birth of the web, or the Ford Model T which popularized automobile transport. Ultimately, however you look at it, this was the year when bitcoin made its irrevocable mark on history.
