BEYOND Do you feel like something really big is on the horizon but you cannot put your finger on what it is? What if there was a ‘Cosmic Wildcard’ that no one can truly imagine?
There are many possibilities that could qualify as the Cosmic Wildcard, so we will try to cover a few of them

The Photon Belt

The Photon Belt is a belt or ring of photons is going to envelop the Earth, causing a cataclysm and/or initiating a spiritual transition, with the time period leading up to “The Shift” referred to as “The Quickening.”
The theory is based on an immense belt of photons orbiting around the Pleiades. According to some beliefs, Earth will pass through this belt of photons, resulting either in humanity’s elevation to a higher plane of existence.
Authors Virginia Essene (born 1928) and Sheldon Nidle write that the Photon Belt represents a temporary window for spiritual transition during which time humans can reach a higher level of existence, which they term the “galactic” level.
Samael Aun Weor, who adopted the idea in the late 1970s, refers to the Photon Belt as “Alcyone’s rings” (or “the rings of Alcyone”). Weor claims that “Alcyone is the principal sun of the Pleiades and in its orbit gravitate seven suns, our sun being the seventh which circles Alcyone.” According to Weor, Alcyone has rings made of “radiation” caused by the “splitting of the electron.” Weor refers to this “radiation” as “manasic” (from the Sanskrit term for the mind, manas), and indicates that “it in some way relates to [the distinction between] the inferior manas (lower mind or lower self) and the superior manas (higher mind or Higher Self).” Weor purports that “the electrons in Alcyone’s rings release a type of unknown energy”According to Paul LaViolette, there has been galactic superwaves that emanate from our galactic core which occur every 13,000 – 26,000 years or so. This would fall on the approximate timetable of the precession of the equinoxes, which is a 26,000 year cycle.
According to LaVioletteWhile there are many possibilities that can occur such as the ones listed above, there also remains the possibility of something occurring that no one ever anticipated.
The Earth’s heartbeat is known as the Schumann Resonance, which has been recorded atapproximately 7.83 cycles per second for presumably thousands of years. In recent years, the Schumann Resonance has been rising and was recently recorded as high as 8.50.
Speculation infers that the Earth may stop rotating once the Schumann Resonance reached 13 cycles per second. At that point, the Earth would stop rotating for 3 days and then start spinning in the opposite direction, causing a magnetic reversal of the poles.
Under this premise, a magnetic pole reversal may affect the way the hemispheres in our brain interact. Three possible scenarios exist in such a situation:
  • 1. Nothing happens to our brains.
  • 2. The hemispheres of our brains instantly interact with one another, opening up synapses to higher metaphysical abilities.
  • 3. We all go crazy!
  • Cosmic rays from coronal mass ejections may possibly mutate our DNA into the next realm of spontaneous evolution.
    David Sereda has been working diligently in this area of science. According to Sereda, since 2006, scientists have been noticing a difference in the decay rates in nuclear particles, which had been consistently reliable in previous years.
    What does this mean? It isn’t typical to see such a drastic change in these decay rates. Scientists are seeing a change of 1/10th of 1% in these particles, which was previously unheard of and is unexplainable at this moment. When a particle speeds up, it means it’s radiating more energy. This includes the energy and particles within our own bodies. Studies on DNA have indicated that even very weak changes in the energy field can cause profound changes in our DNA

    Galactic Ribbon and Galactic Bubble

    There is an energy field at the edge of the Milky Way Galaxy that’s described as a ribbon. “This is a shocking new result for us and one that is not entirely understood,” said David McComas, the lead scientist on a NASA mission called IBEX.
    This “ribbon” is a long band of high-energy particle emissions that could feasibly alter our DNA.
    There also exists a Galactic Bubble that appears to be growing in size above and below the Milky Way GalaxyIs it possible that these changes are related to our location to the center of the Milky Way Galaxy as we near the precession of the equinoxes? Do the changes in our Sun have any relevance to the changes in our solar system? How do these changes affect us on a cellular level?

    Mass UFO Landing

    How would you react if, “out of the blue”, a mass UFO landing occurred? What if this was your galactic family wanting to bring you back “home”? If you had to make a decision right now, without being able to consult friends and family, would you leave or would you stay with Mother Earth?

    The Harvest

    According to the Law of One channelings:
    The book argues that the goal of a soul is to “polarize” in one of two different directions: “Positive polarization” (labeled as “service-to-others”) through identifying with others empathetically, or “negative polarization” (labeled as “service-to-self”) through “separating” the self from others. Souls are said to “harvest” and proceed to the next level once they are properly “polarized”.
    Some argue that this is a harvesting of energy by archonic forces while others believe this is a harvest of souls who are ready for their next level of spiritual progression.

    Converging Waves

    In May of 2016, I released an article and video entitled, “THREE Massive Tidal Waves Are Coming And It’s Not What You Think!“. In this video and article, I explained how I saw three massive tidal waves coming, yet there was no fear.
    The following is an excerpt from that article:
    Water is a mutable energy. It can be solid, liquid, or gas. If you think of a tidal “wave”, the wave can be viewed as a wave of energy This is what I feel the dream is portraying to me.
    There is a huge wave of energy arriving that all of us will be focused on. In the meanwhile, another wave of energy will be coming from the opposite direction and will converge with the initial energy wave. At that point, something magical will happen! Whether that’s moving into the next stage of spirituality, becoming alightbody, or something else is unknown, but it will be MAGICALIf these waves are viewed as conscious waves of energy, then this could very well be the transformative event that would qualify as the Cosmic Wildcard.

    The Unknown Wildcard

    The true unknown wildcard may come in the form of something completely unanticipated and could happen in the blink of an eye. Most people within this genre innately feel that whatever this event may be, it will be positive.
    Many of us have a sense of impending urgency compiled with a desire to “go home”. Whether home is going back to the organic Earth or to your galactic planet of origin, the feeling remains. We all feel like we are on the verge of something magnanimous, yet it is difficult to pinpoint exactly what that might be.
    Regardless of what happens (or doesn’t happen), ALWAYS use your own discernment. Be aware that as long as we are still within this matrix, we will remain pawns in a much larger game. As events unfold, try to think logically about what possible motives may exist for whatever choice you decide, as well as how your decision may affect those you love.

    What do you think?

4 ways to close the inequality gap in the Fourth Industrial Revolution

People are losing faith in the future, believing that their children will be worse off than they are. They are asking whether new technology is the road to a better future for all or only the few who are orchestrating the reshaping of our world.
We don't have to look very far to see the transformative and disruptive changes brought by the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the fusion of technologies blurring the lines between the physical, digital and biological spheres. Everyone and everything on our planet is becoming connected, spawning massive tributary flows of digital information on a scale unthinkable a decade ago. By 2020, more people will be equipped with mobile phones than have electricity or running water in their homes or villages. Facebook today has a larger population than China or India. Advances in artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are breaking down man-machine barriers and augmenting human potential.
At the same time, this unprecedented democratization of technology and flattening of our world doesn't guarantee a more open, diverse and inclusive global society. A Balkanization of countries previously open to free trade and free borders is under way, and the result is nation states squarely grounded in a new nationalism. We can see the effects of this geopolitical shift in the lack of trust for institutions and growing instability around the world. While the Fourth Industrial Revolution is enabling extraordinary levels of innovation and efficiency, it’s also contributing to a widening inequality gap.
As business leaders, we have an obligation to ensure that the changes wrought by technology transcend our companies and benefit all of humanity. I believe that four core, linked values are critical to navigating the Fourth Industrial Revolution and addressing the complex challenges it presents: trust, growth, innovation and equality.

Build trust

Many might recall the film The Terminator and know where this technology shift could go. Imagine an armed, autonomous drone operated by a private security company whizzing by your family's home, looking for problems in your local neighborhood. It has replaced the two police officers who walked the streets or drove by occasionally on patrol. When it finds something that is out of order, the drone facilitates the arrest and brings in other autonomous technology to support it.
Will consumers trust these new AI and robotic systems to augment human efforts or will they fear them? Similarly, in this digital age, will citizens trust the institutions and service providers who maintain their data? Will social media be used to enlighten or manipulate us? We need to bring transparency into how we govern and manage this technology, and develop security models that allow us to have confidence that these systems won't be hacked, run amok or become tools of oppression for those who control them.

Stimulate growth

Government leaders around the world are making jobs and rising incomes their primary pledge to citizens. They are promising to create millions of new jobs, but will quickly find that creating jobs as new technologies disrupt every industry is far more challenging than in previous eras. Moving factories run by automated robots from one country to another isn't an answer to national unemployment woes.
Advances in AI and robotics are rapidly consuming jobs, and widening the economic inequality gap around the world even further. The World Bank estimates that increasing automation will put 57% of the jobs in the 35 countries in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) at risk, including 47% of US jobs and 77% of the jobs in China.
While many existing jobs will be eliminated or transformed — especially manual and routine jobs that are easily automated — new kinds of jobs that require different skill sets will emerge. By one estimate, 65% of children entering primary school today will have to prepare for jobs in categories that don't yet exist.
Either the inequality gap continues to widen, leaving the world much less stable; or we invest in the creating the policies and education programmes that train young people for the jobs of tomorrow and retrain displaced workers. For those who cannot be retrained, and even those traditionally not compensated for raising a family or volunteering to help others, we need to look at universal basic income. These are the challenges we face in establishing dynamic job growth in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

Spur innovation

There is more innovation happening today than at any other time in human history. It's not just the information technology we experience every day on our smartphones, it's a broad technology shift that includes nanotechnology, virtual reality, 3D printing and genetic engineering, in addition to AI and robotics. For example, genome editing technologies, such as CRISPR, are bringing us closer to curing some of the most devastating diseases affecting humankind and creating more drought-resistant crops.
We now have exciting new ways to deal with the Zika virus, which is spread primarily by the Aedes mosquito. Using CRISPR/cas9 gene drive systems, a mosquito's genes can be modified to eliminate its ability to reproduce. Advances in AI and robotics are breaking down barriers between humans and machines with deep learning neural networks powering intelligent digital assistants and smart robots performing complex surgeries.
But, these incredible breakthroughs could also impact our species and ecosystems in unpredictable and unwanted ways. We need to ensure that the technical innovations of the Fourth Industrial Revolution are applied to solving the myriad problems we face, while protecting society from irreversible damage.

Drive equality

Technology can separate us as easily as it can bring us together. Today, the top 1% owns more than 50% of the world's wealth, while the bottom 50% has less than 1%. What is more, the richest 10% holds nearly 90% of the world’s wealth and that gap is widening as technological disruption progresses. New AI-based trading mechanisms, for example, are allowing major banks and hedge funds to tip the scales in their favour. Autonomous vehicles will significantly impact the transportation labour force in coming years.
The changes that the Fourth Industrial Revolution bring will be beyond anything we have witnessed before. Businesses driving the global economy are the greatest platforms for change. As business leaders we can choose whether we commit ourselves to harnessing new technologies and engaging with our communities to improve the state of the world; or let them erode what binds us together and cripple our planet. Every company has employees who want to give back to their communities, who can volunteer at their local schools to teach kids to code, help displaced workers learn new skills or support a non-profit focused on helping others. This is a vast army of millions of individuals who can have an enormous impact.
While technology is a factor in closing the inequality gap, access to a high-quality education and the opportunities that affords is critical. Today, anestimated 263 million children and youth worldwide are out of school, which is equivalent to about 80% of the US population. They are going to be unprepared to succeed as technology continues to advance.
When Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, first outlined the dimensions of the Fourth Industrial Revolution last year, he said: “We must look past our own narrow interests and attend to the interests of our global society.” A more equitable world, supported by living-wage job growth and transformed by phenomenal innovations, will lead to a trust revolution that allows us to confront the challenges of the Fourth Industrial Revolution in a responsible and responsive way. It’s within our grasp to work together to create a better future.
Equality is also about providing equal access, opportunities and rights for women and minorities. For example, women on average have less than two-thirds of the economic opportunity compared to men, and the World Economic Forum forecasts economic parity for women will take 170 years. Without proper governance and incentives, technology will exacerbate the pace of inequality.

Five leadership priorities for 2017

Written by
Klaus SchwabFounder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum

As the past year has demonstrated, leaders must be responsive to the demands of the people who have entrusted them to lead, while also providing a vision and a way forward, so that people can imagine a better future.
True leadership in a complex, uncertain, and anxious world requires leaders to navigate with both a radar system and a compass. They must be receptive to signals that are constantly arriving from an ever-changing landscape, and they should be willing to make necessary adjustments; but they must never deviate from their true north, which is to say, a strong vision based on authentic values.
That is why the World Economic Forum has made Responsive and Responsible Leadership the theme for our annual January meeting in Davos. As leaders in government, business, and civil society chart a course for the next year, five key challenges will warrant their attention.
Firstly, they will have to come to grips with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, which is redefining entire industries, and creating new ones from scratch, owing to groundbreaking advances in artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, self-driving vehicles, 3D-printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, and quantum computing.
These technologies have only begun to show their full potential; in 2017, we will increasingly see what used to be science fiction become reality. But, while the Fourth Industrial Revolution could help us solve some of our most pressing problems, it is also dividing societies into those who embrace change and those who do not. And that threatens our wellbeing in ways that will have to be identified and addressed.
Secondly, leaders will have to build a dynamic, inclusive multi-stakeholder global-governance system. Todays’s economic, technological, environmental, and social challenges can be addressed only through global public-private collaboration; but our current framework for international cooperation was designed for the post-war era, when nation-states were the key actors.
At the same time, geopolitical shifts have made today’s world truly multipolar. As new global players bring new ideas about how to shape national systems and the international order, the existing order is becoming more fragile. So long as countries interact on the basis of shared interests, rather than shared values, the extent to which they will be able to cooperate will be limited. Moreover, non-state actors are now capable of disrupting national and global systems, not least through cyber attacks. To withstand this threat, countries cannot simply close themselves off. The only way forward is to make sure that globalization is benefiting everyone.
A third challenge for leaders will be to restore global economic growth. Permanently diminished growth translates into permanently lower living standards: with 5% annual growth, it takes just 14 years to double a country’s GDP; with 3% growth, it takes 24 years. If our current stagnation persists, our children and grandchildren might be worse off than their predecessors.
Even without today’s technologically driven structural unemployment, the global economy would have to create billions of jobs to accommodate a growing population, which is forecast to reach 9.7 billion by 2050, from 7.4 billion today. Thus, 2017 will be a year in which social inclusion and youth unemployment become critical global and national issues.
A fourth challenge will be to reform market capitalism, and to restore the compact between business and society. Free markets and globalization have improved living standards and lifted people out of poverty for decades. But their structural flaws – myopic short-termism, increasing wealth inequality, and cronyism – have fueled the political backlash of recent years, in turn highlighting the need to create permanent structures for balancing economic incentives with social wellbeing.
Finally, leaders will need to address the pervasive crisis in identity formation that has resulted from the erosion of traditional norms over the past two decades. Globalization has made the world smaller but more complex, and many people have lost confidence in institutions. Many people now fear for their future, and they are searching for shared but distinct beliefs that can furnish a sense of purpose and continuity.
Identity formation is not a rational process; it is deeply emotional and often characterized by high levels of anxiety, dissatisfaction, and anger. Politics is also driven by emotion: leaders attract votes not by addressing needs or presenting long-term visions, but rather by offering a sense of belonging, nostalgia for simpler times, or a return to national roots. We witnessed this in 2016, as populists made gains by fostering reactionary and extreme beliefs. Responsible leaders, for their part, must recognize people’s fears and anger as legitimate, while providing inspiration and constructive plans for building a better future.
But how? The world today seems to be engulfed in a sea of pessimism, negativity, and cynicism. And yet, we have an opportunity to lift millions more people out of poverty, so that they can lead healthier and more meaningful lives. And we have a duty to work together toward a greener, more inclusive, and peaceful world. Whether we succeed will not depend on some external event, but rather on the choices our leaders make.
The coming year will be a critical test for all stakeholders in global society. More than ever, we will need responsive and responsible leadership to address our collective challenges, and to restore people’s trust in institutions and in one another. We do not lack the means to make the world a better place. But to do so, we must look past our own narrow interests and attend to the interests of our global society.
That duty begins with our leaders, who must begin to engage in open dialogue and a common search for solutions to the five major challenges on the horizon. If they acknowledge that ours is a global community with a shared destiny, they will have made a first – albeit modest – step in the right direction.

by Ginny Marston, Are you a Starseed?

Starseeds are beings that have experienced life outside of the universe on other planets and in non-physical dimensions other than the earth, although they may have had previous lifetimes on earth. There are 3 categories of star seeds
  • Typical Starseed: Had preparation lifetimes and may have lived 5-50 times on this earth.
  • Old Soul Starseed: Has had hundreds of lifetimes on earth, these are our guardians of the earth.
  • New Starseed: Many who have had no lifetimes on earth. These include some of the Crystal and Rainbow Children.
Traits of Starseeds:
  • Difficulty fitting in, not being able to relate to people, an innate loneliness and want to return home.
  • Shy and introverted as a child. They are creative and enjoy spending their time playing make-believe rather than playing with other children.
  • Highly intelligent and inquisitive. Fascination with learning but if they feel the information is mundane, they will tune it out.
  • Often diagnosed with A.D.D. or even Bi-Polar Disorder due to the dramatic mood swings because of their sensitivity to the world around them.
  • Often had imaginary friends and created a fantasy world to explore their own minds.
  • Around the ages of 5-11, they may have experienced a paranormal experience with shadow figures or ghosts.
  • Feel more comfortable communicating and being around animals and nature.
  • Due to their sensitive nature, they often choose careers that involve healing.
  • Have difficulty deciding what to do with their life as nothing on this planet makes sense to them.
Physical Traits of Starseeds:
  • A strange tendency to bruise easily.
  • Strong bodies that heal easily after an injury.
  • Sensitivity to extremes of hot or cold temperatures.
  • Many have very acute hearing and are very sensitive to sound.
  • Eccentric or intense eyes, any color hair with a reddish tint.
  • Have an extreme sensitivity to medicine, alcohol, or drugs with a high risk of dependency. The more awakened the Starseed becomes, the less likely they will become dependent.
  • They are more “night” oriented often staying up late and sleeping in. They feel a sense of peace when night falls.
Do you recognize many of these characteristics? If you have, you may have or be experiencing a Starseed awakening that may make you question if you are losing your mind.
Do not be alarmed as these are the signs that you may be experiencing
  • Feeling over stressed with an intense energy – Your body is now adjusting to a much higher vibration and slowly will adjust.
  • Feeling disoriented – You are not in 3D anymore and are in the process of moving into higher dimensions.
  • Increased pains or aches in your body – Your body is clearing out any blocked energy, cleansing you while your vibrations increase as you go into higher dimensions.
  • Waking up in the middle of the night – Your body needing to take a rest from your dreams as there is so much going on in them you need a “time out” to rejuvenate
  • Becoming sensitive to your environment – Not enjoying loud noises, large crowds and for some, TV or certain foods.
Starseeds more than any others on the planet have an inherent soul purpose to be of service in love, light, and truth for the evolution and ascension of Earth. They are here as guides, watchers, builders, and anchors. As a Starseed, you are approaching a time when the blissfulness of your inner states suggests that release is impending. While others around you may not know what is occurring, you will be in the forefront to show others who have not walked this way before how ascension is accomplished.

About the AuthorHello, my name is Ginny, author at I am originally from Long Island, NY but now live in beautiful Florida. I am a Registered Nurse, a healer by nature. Having worked in trauma, I have been with those at the time of passing as well as given comfort to their families. As a child and teen I exhibited special gifts but they faded as my life journey went to raising a family and having a career. It wasn’t until my Grandmother, and then Father, passed that I yearned to be able to see and speak to them to ensure they were at peace and to tell them the things that I wished I had when they were here on Earth. On October 10, 2016, I tragically lost my youngest daughter, Christina. This led me to ‘go down the rabbit hole’ with my grief, pain, and the empty place in my heart only Christina could fill. The note that I laid with her was “You will never be alone as at the time of your death a piece of my heart died with you.” Many of my spiritual friends began to reach out to me, I began to look for signs she was still here with us, and channeled my energy to go back in time to renew my gifts so that I could not only speak with Christina, as I had with my other passed love ones, but to also learn more about her new journey. Christina’s and my journey are just beginning and I hope to share not only my journey with her but how you too can connect with your loved one. Follow MetaMissy on Facebook!

20 History Questions They Refuse To Answer In School! In5D January 11, 2017 Awareness, Extraterrestrials

By Gregg Prescott, M.S.
Traditional educational systems basically teach us that the history of man only dates back to about 8,000 years ago while religious texts date mankind to approximately 6,000 years ago.  It is more than obvious that there a massive push to occlude our true history and origins.
While you may not agree with some of the questions, please try to view them with an open mind.  As you’ll see, the history we have been taught has been manipulated and obscured from us.  Ask yourself (or others) the following questions and feel free to comment at the end of the article!
A map drawn on a gazelle skin of an unfrozen Antarctica was found in 1929.  The map was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, who had privileged access to the Imperial Library of Constantinople.  Contained within the notes found on the map, Reis stated that he compiled and copied the data from a large number of source maps, some of which dated back to the 4 BC or earlier.  Our history books tell us that Antarctica was discovered by Captain James Cook while crossing the Antarctic Circle on January 17, 1773 with the ships HMS Resolution and Adventure.
1. How did Reis know of Antarctica several hundred years before Captain James Cook ‘discovered’ it?
The last time Antarctica was not frozen was at least 4,000 BC, so…. Where did the Imperial Library of Constantinople get THEIR information and who is responsible for the initial drawing of that mapA tiny figurine made of baked-clay (right) was brought up in amongst the debris churned out by a huge drill bit during the drilling of a well in Nampa Idaho in 1889. The object is a one inch long figure with one leg broken off at the knee.
3. Is it possible that mankind has been here many times LONG BEFORE our recorded past? 
4. How many millennia would it take for an object like this to be buried 300 feet into the ground?
According to Darwinism, man evolved from ape.
5. If man evolved from ape, then why are there still apes?
6. There are pyramids on every continent of the world.  Who built them and why were they built?
Klaus Dona stated, “inside the big cup it is very, very magnetic and outside the cup nearly nothing. Professional geologists are saying this is impossible because if a stone has metal particles inside the stone, it must be same magnetic from both sides.”
In Ecuador, one large Jade cup and 12 smaller Jade cups were found. Each of the smaller cups are a little bit different in size, but if you were to fill each one and pour them into the larger one, the contents would exactly fill the larger cup. The large cup has a perfect inlaid star constellation, showing Orion and other stars

In Illoinois a well bit brought up a 200,000 year old bronze coin from a depth of 114 feet just outside Chillicothe, Illinois. According to the Illinois State Geological Survey, the deposits containing the coin are between 200,000 and 400,000 years old.
7. If scientists say that it is impossible to have a very magnetic inside of a jade cup with a non-magnetic outside of the same cup, then who created these vessels and where are they from
8. Long before our state-sponsored recorded history will admit that civilized man was on Earth, what culture made this coin?
 Why do all history classes exclude this information?
More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador in an old tunnel system.  One artifact in particular shows the same pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the top of it (below).  Under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue while on the bottom of this artifact, you can see a star map of Orion’s Belt along with writing that is older than any known writing on this planet. According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings
We are seeing a continuing theme involving Orion’s Belt.  The pyramids on the Giza Plateau also reflect the exact same alignment as the “3 Kings” of Orion’s Belt.
10. What visitors came to this planet from Orion’s Belt?
It’s obvious that Orion’s Belt plays a large significance in the origins of mankind.  Who are these visitors from Orion’s Belt and what is their agenda?
11. What is the significance of the Orion’s Belt constellation?
Professor Kurt Schildmann, former President of the German Linguistic Association, called this writing “pre-Sanskit” (older than 6,000 years old) and was able to translate the writing as follows:
“The son of the creator comes.”
In the pre-religious Anunnaki creation myth, Anu had 2 sons, Enki and Enlil.  Enki, also known as Ea (as in EArth) in Sumerian texts, was loving and kind to the genetically modified humans who mined gold for the Anunnaki.
12. What is the true meaning of this pyramid and why is this symbol still being used
13. Does “The son of the creator comes” refer to Enki?
The Old and New Testament of the Christian bible clearly shows one vengeful god who kills millions of people while an apparently different god who is all loving.
14. Does the bible reflect the story of Enlil (Old Testament, malevolent towards humans) and Enki (New Testament, all-loving toward humans)?
 Who is “us” and “our”? Why “replenish”? To replenish suggests to “do it again”.
In the Old Testament, Genesis 1:26-28, it states, “Let us make man in our image, after ourlikeness.” It goes on to say, “Be fruitful, multiply, and replenish the Earth.
In 1851 in Dorchester, Massachusetts, a 4-1/2 inch high zinc and silver alloy vase was dynamited out of solid rock 15 feet below the surface.  On the sides were figures of flowers in bouquet arrangements, inlaid with pure silver. The rock out of which it came is estimated to be 100,000 years old.
16. According to academia, what civilization was capable of this type of art 100,000 years ago?
. Our recorded history tells us that civilized man has only been here anywhere between 6-8,000 years, so who made these spheres millions of years beforehand?
Over 200 metallic spheres have been found in South Africa and are estimated to be 4,500 million years old.  There are two types of spheres: “one of solid bluish metal with white flecks, and another which is a hollow ball filled with a white spongy center” (Jimison, 1982)
With the exception of stone and precious metals, virtually everything we own right now would eventually turn to dirt throughout the millennia, including all of our TV’s, cellphones, cars, planes and everything made of plastic.  If by chance, some major catastrophe were to hit our planet, within 100,000 years, just about every hint of civilization would be buried under years of decay.
18. Is it possible that there are malevolent rulers who have kept us in economic subservience for literally hundreds of thousands of years, if not millions of years?
All religions seem to share similar stories.
19. Is it possible that this template has been used since the earliest incarnations came to this planet, perhaps billions of years ago? 
20. When will we finally learn to live without being economic slaves to the same system of domination and control?
3 bonus questions for YOU to answer:
Why has our true history been hidden from us? What is the purpose of suppressing such information? How many times have civilizations come and gone from this planet? Leave your comments below!

How populism taps into the human desire for punishment - a psychologist explains

Dr. Molly Crockett, a neuroscientist and experimental psychologist at Oxford University, explains why we often punish others even if it hurts ourselves, how populist movements capitalise on our thirst for retaliation, and what responsible 
leaders can do to stop the cycle of retribution.

In your research, you study the neuroscience and psychology of retaliation. What have you discovered?
The biggest takeaway from this research is that social emotions like anger, envy, and spite are very powerful motives. They often outweigh economic self-interest and they tap into the brain's reward centres – the same brain areas that play a role in addiction. These emotions can fuel a behavior called 'costly punishment': where people take on a personal cost to punish another person for being unfair.
One speculation is that this destructive impulse to punish may be even stronger when people are under chronic stress, for example during an economic recession.
How did you find out about this impulse?
Costly punishment has been demonstrated in an experiment called the ultimatum game. In this game, one player (the “proposer”) is given some money and can decide how to split it with a second player (the “responder”). The responder can then accept the offer and take their share of the money, or they can reject it, in which case, the money disappears and neither player gets anything.
The research shows that most responders will reject offers they consider to be unfair (usually about less than 30% of the total pie). When this experiment was first conducted in the early 1980s, the results surprised most economists, because the results contradicted classical models of “rational self interest”. Over decades of research, this has proven to be one of the most robust findings in behavioural science: people care about far more than material self-interest. They care about fairness, they care about autonomy and identity, and they don't like being treated with disrespect. People find that destroying the wealth of a more powerful player is much more satisfying than taking a small offer they see as insulting.
You've studied the neuroscience behind this. How does our brain make the decision to inflict costly punishment?
When people reject unfair offers, a brain area called the dorsal stratum is activated. The dorsal stratum is at the core of the reward system of the brain. It's activated when we receive all kinds of rewards, for example money, food, or seeing nice pictures. It's also very strongly implicated in addiction. An initial hit of cocaine, for example, causes a response in the striatum. As people become addicted, any cue associated with taking cocaine also activates the striatum. The fact that this same brain area is activated during costly punishment suggests there could be an addictive quality to punishment and retribution.
According to our experiments, people are also more likely to reject unfair offers if their brain has been depleted of serotonin, a neurotransmitter involved in self-regulation. When serotonin levels are low, people become more focused on immediate rewards, and they become more impulsive and aggressive.
What can we do to control this destructive behaviour?
First of all, because the brain circuitry involved in punishment has also been implicated in addiction, it's very important not to indulge the impulse for revenge. Retaliation can breed more retaliation. When two groups are in conflict, and one side retaliates, the other side becomes more likely to retaliate. As this behavior escalates it could take on an addictive quality. Each time you indulge the impulse makes it more likely you'll do it again the next time.
Also - and this is more speculative - animal studies have shown that serotonin levels can be depleted by long-term stress. So the hypothesis is that chronic stress, which might be one consequence of an economic recession, could prime people to be in a state where they are more likely to engage in these retributive behaviours.
What if people feel they are acting out of a sense of justice rather than revenge?
Punishment is often described in moralistic, high-minded terms: punish unfairness, stand up to economic injustice. But in our research, people punished even when the experiment had been set up so that the punishment was hidden - the perpetrator never found out they had been punished. There was no social message in the punishment, no lesson for the perpetrator. People just wanted to hurt the person who had hurt them, and that's an anti-social motive.
We also find that people seem to be largely unaware of their own motives for punishment. When asked about why they punish, they are more likely to cite moralistic reasons like enforcing fairness norms, than antisocial motives like a desire for revenge. And self-reported desire for revenge is totally uncorrelated with vengeful behavior. This suggests people might be punishing for antisocial reasons, but telling themselves and others they are punishing for moralistic reasons.
Is there a link between the individual impulse to punish, and the global rise in populist movements?
Populist messaging has been very effective in channelling retributive impulses into votes. Around the world populist movements are wreaking economic destruction and social turmoil in the name of moral principles. That may be the story people are telling themselves and others, but it's likely not the only motive. One responsibility of leaders is to be careful not to let harmful, destructive behaviour be justified on moral grounds.
What else can responsible leaders do to stop the cycle of retribution?
Ultimatum game experiments have shown that if responders are given an alternative channel for expressing their dissatisfaction with unfair offers, for example by sending a written message to the proposer, then they will send that message and accept the offer. They sent angry messages like “Thanks for nothing”, “Why do you have to be greedy?” - but they accepted the offer.
When people feel that destructive behavior is the only option they have to make their voices heard, they are going to take that option, even if it hurts them financially. But if they have alternative channels to express their displeasure, they may be able to act in a way that's consistent with their long-term economic interest and still feel satisfied.
That's fascinating. But don't we have more channels than ever before to express our dissatisfaction in public?
This is a puzzle that we have not yet solved. On the one hand, research has shown that giving people alternative channels to express their displeasure makes them less likely to punish. But on the other hand, research on aggression shows that “venting” makes people more likely to be aggressive in the future. If expressing outrage is rewarding, small acts of self-expression, for instance on Facebook or Twitter, might increase the likelihood of future expressions of outrage – perhaps via one’s vote.
What's next for your research?
I would like to test the hypothesis that punishment has an addictive quality. If it does, then perhaps we can learn from addiction research how to counter the punitive impulse.

The Art of the Deal By Bayo Ogunmupe

       The Art of the Deal is the title of Donald John Trump's best selling book which catapulted him to become one of 50 greatest prosperity thinkers in the world. It was published in 1987, a symbol of capitalism in New York City, the United States. Owing to his self promotion, extravagant lifestyle and big business deals, Trump was already famous by the time The Art was published.
       The book's timing was lucky, coming out just ahead of the troubles that beset Trump in the late 1980s. Much to his enemies' chagrin, Trump sorted himself out, coming back bigger than ever. Whoever said  there are no second chances in business did not count on the power of a brand, a large part of Trump's fortune comes down to his name. When in 2003 television producers approached him to be the focus of a new reality television series based on entrepreneurship, a subject that he is an expert in, The Apprentice, he seized the opportunity to cement his fame with a new generation.
       Despite the array of books Trump had published to capitalize on the success of his show, The Art is still the best insight into the man and his philosophy of prosperity for all and life more abundant. Now 29 years on, it contains Trump's essential philosophies, practices and ways of working that have sustained his success for more than forty years. the only difference is that , then he was a brash upstart willing to take on anything and anyone, and now he is a wise, if still very showy, business and managerial guru.
       The scale of Trump's operations may have quadrupled, but the Trump of the eighties is largely the same one that dramatically pulled off a stunning election upset in 2016. Here we look at some of his deals, beliefs and strategies that have seen him thrive and prosper even in the face of malice and denigration.  In a nutshell, in The Art, Trump recommends: To succeed in business, balance boldness and promotion with patience, caution and flexibility.
       Trump's father was a developer of rent controlled housing in New York. Despite it being a low margin and unglamorous real estate business, his tenacity ensured  his success. Though Donald spent much of his boyhood following his dad around sites, he always dreams of creating landmark projects that made statements in Manhattan. Trump's first project was the Commodore, a huge hotel in a low rent Manhattan district. At the time he notes: "I was only twenty-sevenn years old and had never slept in a hotel." But he embarked on building a 1,400-room monster which remained the biggest in New York for 25 years.
       It is a myth Trump observes, that location is everything in real estate. It is important, but to make the most of any property, what you need to create is a sense of worth or mystique that will make people want to buy. He says: "People may not always think big themselves, but they can still get very excited by those who do. That's why a little hyperbole  never hurts. People want to believe that something is the biggest and the greatest and the most spectacular."
       To get your project noticed, you must be different, even outrageous and being so increases your chances of becoming a story in the media. He does not court publicity for publicity's sake; in fact, he claims to be a very private person. However, he notes that a small article in New York Times will be worth many times more than a full page advertisement costing $100,000, even if its slant is negative.
       Despite his flashy image, a major element in the Trump success is being prepared to wait. For example, for years he prized the Bonwit Teller site that would eventually become Trump Tower; repeatedly writing to its owners to state his interest. He kept up his interest, he notes: "because much more often than you'd think, sheer persistence is the difference between success  and failure."  When the site fell into the hands of new owners who were in a poor  financial situation, it was to Trump they turned to sell.
       Many of his successes came from offering to buy assets before they were on the market. You need leverage, find out what the seller needs , give them this in  addition to the purchase price. One of his trademarks is his hubristic confidence amplified by facts about his article of purchase. Other things we learn about Trump is that while in College, he preferred reading listings of property rather than reading comic or sports. In his biography of Trump: No Such Thing as Over Exposure, Robert Slater said Donald is more forgiving and generous than his image suggest. Indeed, it was the beneficiaries of his munificence who urged him to contest for president.
        Trump was born in Queens, New York in 1946, the fourth of five children of Mary, a Scottish immigrant and his father, the son of German immigrants originally named Drumpf who ran a hotel in British Columbia. At 13, Donald went to New York Military Academy; later he studied economics at Fordham University. Lastly he went to University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Finance, America's foremost school of entrepreneurship, graduating in 1968. He briefly worked  for his father before venturing out on his own. Trump has five children from three women. The Forbes Rich List if 2006 estimated Trump's fortune at $2.9 billion; making him America's 94th richest person. Donald J Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the USA in January 2017.

Leadership isn't position By Bayo Ogunmupe

       Many see leaders as those with position and power. Such people assume that leaders are the few people at the head of an organization. Nothing could be further from the truth. Peter Drucker a notable authority on leadership and management said: "All the effective leaders I have encountered, those I have worked with and those I merely watched knew few things; a leader is someone who has followed some principles. Popularity is not leadership. Leadership is not rank, titles or money; leadership is responsibility."
       Position, title and authority are often confused with leadership. That you are the president of a country or the chief executive of a company does not make you a leader. All a title does is just make you an executive. Whilst position and authority provide you with potentials, they do not make you a leader. You just don't suddenly become a leader just because you have a fancy new title.
       In fact you cannot lead in such circumstances, because leadership happens when people allow you to influence them. It is only when your influence causes people to work for a shared vision that you become a leader. Leadership is more of influence , trust and relationship than it is about control and governance. An American human rights champion, Ralph Nader defined leadership thus: "The function of leadership is to produce more leaders not more followers." 
       The danger of leadership as authority and position is  that it leads to dictatorship. Such leaders think that because of their elevated position they can do whatever they like. Titular leaders encourage the use of control to get things done. Such style of leadership results in the following negative outcomes. One, leading from such positions undermines meaningful change. Two, Such leaders crush the human spirit. Three, leading from position frustrates creativity. Four, leading from position erodes trust. Five, leading from position fosters mediocrity. Lastly, leading from position destroys empathy for others. Those who lead from position do not invest time needed on shared vision that inspires others.
       Leadership is not the exercise of control over others. Leadership is the empowerment of oneself and others towards  the execution of a shared objective. Which is why leadership is influence. It often comes as a surprise to new titular leaders that a large portion of their job involves influencing others outside of their control. The reality of governance is that you cannot control anyone- except yourself. That is why leading by control is the lowest form of leadership. Control is an illusion.
       Great leaders don't lead from position. That is why Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King Jnr, Jesus Christ, Mother Teresa and Mahatma Gandhi still bestrode the world as colossuses. These leaders had no titles before they attained greatness; yet they molded the history of their time. Their leadership was defined by the impact they made in their time. Leadership then is about what you do, not what you are served. The hallmark of effective leadership is the influence you have on the lives of others. The greater your influence the greater your leadership.
