    Why Elon Musk Is Warning Us About The Misuse Of AI

    To the casual mainstream headline-browser, Elon Musk is a doomsayer, foreboding that Artificial Intelligence will eventually exceed human intelligence in all respects and, motivated by its own intelligent self-interest, AI will eventually bring about the enslavement or even demise of the human race. Alas, no. No, that’s not what Elon Musk is saying. And no, that scenario is not even possible. Not now. Not ever. Understanding AI Let us come to an understanding about one thing. Artificial Intelligence is not intelligence in the way that we as human beings know it and experience it. As biological entities, we are all inextricably ... Read More

    Ex Chief Adviser For The UN’s Child Labour Program Arrested For Pedophilia

    There’s been a massive amount of disclosure with regards to elite pedophile rings for decades, but more attention was brought to it last year, with some weird and bizarre leaked emails from long time politician, John Podesta, it’s how the whole “Pizzagate” debacle began. Not only that, last year an NBC news report claimed that Hillary Clinton, while acting as secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks in order to avoid scandal and protect the careers of high ranking officials and an ambassador. Pretty crazy, isn’t it? Former U.S. representative, Cynthia McKinney, ... Read More

    So We Aren’t Allowed To Touch Anymore? We’re Living In A True Human Connection Crisis

    How often do you hug or touch someone who is not a member of your family or a partner? When did you pat the back of a complete stranger or opt in for a hug upon meeting someone? Physical touch, in general is becoming increasingly unpopular due to a lot of fear and worry around someone not reciprocating and potentially even taking legal action. While it’s true, you never know how someone might react, how is this lack of social touch affecting us as humans? Why are we being told that in all cases it’s inappropriate? There are many people ...

    Why Psychedelics Are Not A Shortcut To Enlightenment

    This may be controversial in some perceptions, but authentic truth is so important to me that I had to share this for deeper reflection. It’s especially important in a time where psychedelic substances like mushrooms, ayahuasca, peyote and so forth are becoming quite popular. I believe we are losing sight of what they actually do and what their true purpose is to some extent. My main calling in life is to help expand consciousness and possibility. This is what I have been doing  since founding CE 9 years ago and what I see myself doing until my heart makes it clear ...

    Closing gender gap in physics ‘will take generations’

    Image copyright Getty Images Closing the gender gap in physics will take hundreds of years, given the current rate of progress.That's the finding of research analysing the names of authors listed on millions of scientific papers.Physics, computer science, maths and chemistry had the fewest women, while nursing and midwifery had the most.Without further interventions, the gender gap is likely to persist for generations, said scientists from the University of Melbourne."Of the gender-biased disciplines, almost all are moving towards parity, though some are predicted to take decades or even centuries to reach it," said Dr Cindy Hauser.Number crunchingThe researchers used computer ...

    Bajau people ‘evolved bigger spleens’ for free-diving

    Why Western Medicine Will Never Cure Cancer

    If you have ever walked, ran, ridden, played a sport or grown a moustache in support of large corporate-sponsored drives to cure cancer, you are to be sincerely commended for your time, your effort, and your concern for your fellow human beings. Just know that such efforts have not—and will never—contribute to finding a cure for cancer. That Western cancer research is organized as a business whose fundamental motivation is profit is the subject of numerous excellent books and documentaries, among them Forest Gamble’s Thrive and Ty Bollinger’s The Truth About Cancer. However in this article I would like to ... Read More

    Why Are So Many Schools In Brazil Going Vegan?

    Recently, 4 Brazilian cities have pledged to serve only entirely plant-based meals in school cafeterias by the end of 2019. Many are calling this bold move, ‘historic’ and will certainly raise some eyebrows, provoke some questions, and likely inspire other countries to follow suit. Officials from Serrinha, Barroca, Teofilandia and Birtinga have teamed up with the charity, Humane Society International, (HSI) to begin implementing this program throughout the schools in the aforementioned cities. The schools will begin by reducing consumption of meat, dairy and eggs by 25 percent per semester until they reach their 100% plant-based goal by 2019. Small ... Read More

    Keeping livers ‘alive’ boosts transplant success, trial finds

For this study, scientists put them in a perfusion machine, pumping the organs with blood, nutrients and medicines.More of these "warm" livers went on to be transplanted and showed less damage than the "cold" ones, the trial found.Scientists said the ...

    Artificial Intelligence Causes Its First Death – Can We Really Trust A Robot To Do Our Driving For Us?

    On March 18th, 2018, the history of the automated vehicle industry was forever altered, as an automated vehicle caused its first reported fatality in Tempe, Arizona. A 49 year old woman named Elaine Herzberg, was struck and killed, by the vehicle while it was in autonomous mode. A video released by Tempe Police is bringing up new questions as to why the systems failed to prevent the accident. The Volvo SUV owned and operated by Uber collided with Herzberg who was jaywalking with a bicycle across three lanes of traffic. It is currently unclear what has gone wrong as there ... Read More

    Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters Stops Live Concert To Explain ‘False Flag Chemical Attack In Syria’

    “Not until we have done all the research necessary…” This is the reality of our current time, and the reason why so many in our world are so confused. We are taking the word of leaders, late night comedy show hosts and mainstream media as truth, when in reality they provide loose facts mixed with deep agendas. When it comes to geopolitical matters, how can we expect to be given any sort of truth when what we hear comes directly from intelligence agencies. Roger Waters, the frontman for Pink Floyd, stopped his concert this week in Barcelona to address the ... Read More

    MK ULTRA Survivor Shares How Her Multiple Personalities Were Used By The Global Elite

    According to the US Government, MK ULTRA was the code-name for a secret program run by the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) to conduct mind-control experiments on human beings from 1953 to 1964. The people used in these experiments did not suspect it, seemed to be chosen at random, and were often left emotionally crippled for the rest of their lives. The rationale for this type of activity? Well, it’s the typical answer, for ‘national security’ purposes. Basically, the program was designed to make people do things they normally wouldn’t do whilst under mind control, for the purposes of whoever is ... Read More

    Artist Replaces Billboards With Photos Of The Landscapes They’re Blocking

    If you’ve ever driven across the US, you know how beautiful the scenery can be. Unfortunately in addition to all of the beauty, you are probably well aware of the multitude of billboards that inhabit the vast land, both countrysides and cities. While advertising can be a way to be informed sometimes, what are we missing in its place? One artist took to asking that very question by creating some large pieces that in essence became windows to the very mountain scapes that would otherwise be hidden by the massive billboards that usually are seen throughout our drives. Last year, ... Read More
