Day 439: There is No God in the Bible – Crap, Now What?

Mauro Biglino used to work as an ancient Hebrew translator for a Catholic editor called Edizioni San Paolo.

He translated several books for them and everything was nice and rosy, until he started to send the first versions of his Bible translations, where he excitedly pointed out that the Bible is not a sacred book, was never meant to be one either, but was simply a History book about war, massacres, ethnic cleansing and  about the Creation of Humanity.

He insisted that according to the Script-ure there was no mention of a God in the Old Testament originally, but just of Cosmonauts/Aliens, who created Humanity in their likeness using a part of the substance of the image of themselves.

That was when his work assignment ended abruptly and he was told they no longer needed his services, he now says luckily, because he doesn’t have anything to lose anymore by exposing what was clearly written out and, obviously, covered up during the centuries, by those that shared the power over the planet with some, not-so-human, partners in crime.

Of course a deluge of insults has covered Mauro Biglino after he published his book titled ‘The Bible is Not A Sacred Book – The Great Deception’, some went as far as threatening him to death sending him a letter and a bullet to dissuade him from participating as a guest at a conference, some may honestly fear what he says and feel their whole core belief system threatened by his very existence -and he won’t shut up!- and some may fear the public exposure and consequent embarrassment for  the fact that they knew all along what was going on and they covered it up, because they could -and did- benefit from the Status Quo, tremendously.

Biglino worked on this project with eminent jewish scholars and all of them confirmed that the Old Testaments tells a story that has nothing to do with the story we know, or better said, it has bits and pieces of it, just not the relevant bits and pieces to work out our origins, our purpose and why things have gone on for centuries the way they did.

To those that object to learning a new truth, a truth that doesn’t match the belief system we have unwillingly embraced from birth, one should ask how do we hang on, without batting an eyelid, to a virgin birth or to an All Knowing God that didn’t see THIS coming, an All Powerful Creator that allowed the existence of such a dishonorable world where abuse, violence and wars reign and FEAR is our Core Drive and how do we reconcile such aspects of the MonoGreatGod with His Legendary Compassion, because those are the real hard to swallow dogmas that we never even questioned vs a new idea that this planet of slaves might have been created as such and that we have never had, like never ever, a model of Life Support we can dig out and build upon and maybe THAT is our problem and if we can face it, we can change it, right?

In this light, anything new that we propose can’t be put up for debate using the old, the old was deliberately rigged to make it work for just a bunch of Holy See-rs, Wholly Seers, Overseers and hence we should open up gladly to anything new to consider, with unconditional open arms and work to see HOW we could make fresh, unheard of, models for peaceful and beneficial living that may work for All.

Those that were waiting for God to sort it all out will be very disappointed, they are suddenly dis-appointed from their role of Waiters as in those waiting for someone/something to come and sort it all out. It ain’t happening.

On the other hand though this could be great news, there is no one above us, no one below us, there is just Us, scary as hell maybe but letting God go for Good could be our Saving Grace. Then, considering to Guarantee a Living to All would not seem so outlandish, we were meant to not do that, we were meant to exist enslaved, as slaves, through our Make Belief Money System, Class System, Peasants workforce, so we would ensure the subservience of many to the few for their own survival.
With God out-of-the-way -We are now in charge.

Obviously if we can let God go, we can let the Elite of this existence go as well, they were the Gods of this world and Equally Bad Providers as the Original Creators were, we can’t fix what has been, there will be no restitution for what has taken place and rightly so, we have all equally participated just by the mere fact of being Here, interwoven with each other into a physical fabric that sees us all as equally response-able and equally ineffective at changing the world so far.
So, better start with new models to assist each other and create a world that works for all, we have no one to be loyal to if not each other, our loyalty, our sense of honour, our investments in value have always been misplaced, there was one valuable thing on this planet, Life and we managed to live next to it and never notice it, too busy as we were in refining our art to find ways to survive just another day, without considering the whole in the solutions we sought just for ourselves.

But we can change, if we return Value to Life, if we make Life the Capital worth living for, if we redefine what Capitalism should be as in a System that honours the Life of every living being, the whole world will turn upside down, it just takes a decision to make All Lives Worth-while, while we live Life itself as The Worth and All Lives as having the same worth to Dignity and Freedom from the Fear of how and what we’ll have to do, or even just consider, to make sure we can make it through another day.

Consider A Living Income Guaranteed – there is no God in the Bible, GUARANTEED, we are the Gods of this existence, it is up to us to create a world we are proud to call our MasterPiece and Total Change is just a few beliefs away from where we are, Let’s close the Gap!

Living Income Guaranteed, join the Solution.

Day 437: Inside the ISIS Gift Shop

 

We have been taken on an Al-Qaeda Ride for quite some time, but like all things, Al-Qaeda grew old and the Fear Factor it could generate has exponentially diminished with our over-exposure, Fear is like that, you can only milk it for so long but soon or later the FEAR effect diminishes and we’ll have to manufacture something new to keep the population on their toes.
Fear is a great manipulation tool, we should know, we even use it to scare and manipulate ourselves!

The New FEAR Virus that some hope will take the world by storm is the new ‘jihadist’ group called ISIS, you can notice how quietly all the ex Al-Qaeda news are being replaced with the ISIS news, if more of us knew history and our mythological beliefs the idea of ISIS Rising would sound like a complete mockery of our intelligence but it is possible that the current puppeteers of this world have given up on any hope for any sign of intelligence on our side, since we have proven that there are almost no limits to human stupidity and what we accept to be driven by, will Isis Rising succeed in sending our hopes for a fearless future into the trashcan?

That would not be too bad, Hope is another System Prop, we are sold Hope because we rather Hope for Change than Stand for It, mainly because many don’t know what to do, where to turn, some may fear bloody revolutions, some may have enough to get by while we are called to action, we are prompted to take the streets, to protest and if the system tightening won’t happen through force because we have not fallen for the clear invitations we have been sent for a revolution ‘Vendetta Style‘, it will come through our FEAR, as we allow the FEAR to Rise and will end up asking for More Security, More Police, More Force to Fight against Our Imaginary Enemies.

And while we create all the required cues, such as ISIS Rising, a name – a program,  some can make money out of our FEARS, talk about have your cake and eat it.

We have to realize that the FEAR Factor is what is holding us in our places, this world is laced with FEAR, we start from our, mostly terrifying, family system to grow into Religions and their fear promoting symbols, a guy on a cross is not a bad start to infuse children with sheer terror and one wonders why that, or telling children that they will go to Hell for not obeying our made up rules and desires, should not be considered Child Abuse – instead we don’t question anything but grow up Living FEAR into Existence, breathing FEAR, being so FEAR-FULL that some Minds, soon or later, just give in.
Most mental illnesses are FEAR based, so are we sick and tired of this – or just accept ourselves to be sick -forever?

Fear should be treated like any other disease, there are no people infected with viral diseases that refuse to cure themselves just because they got it from someone they can blame it on, are there? Why isn’t FEAR treated in the same way, it doesn’t matter how we got it, who gave it to us, which forces are at work to make us scared and weak, what matters is if we can stand up regardless of the FEAR FACTOR-Y we live in, and come together to seek solutions that can change this world to the best World for all.

For me, best for all means to be able to consider all the parties involved and find solutions that are inclusive, that consider the best outcome for all, beyond our diseases, of course if we are affected by Fear, Blinding Greed, Ruthless Competition or System Impulsed Desires that prevent us from accessing our ability to see a Best for All Outcome in the problems we face, we can’t ask that our dis-eases be taken into account while we move to redesign a world that works for All.
A first step is to become aware of the fact that if we can’t consider others and others Lives as important and worthy as our own, we are sick -and from that realization we can consider ways to correct ourselves to realign to a Life of Principle or to the Principle of Live above All, then everything can change, everything will change.

Our Institutions don’t need major make overs, they need People Makeovers, Monsters create Monsters, when we’ll become Humans again we can create a Humane Society that benefits All, when a solution is found for everyone, for every People of this Planet, when the FEAR FACTORY for our Lives and our very Survival comes to an end, many things will be solved at the root level by default, simply by implementing a system of support vs a system of back stabbing and competition for survival.

If a Living was Guaranteed to All, we could then see, for real, how many would be willingly corrupted, how many would commit terrible crimes, how many would go and support money making wars, how many would sell their organs or their bodies for a meal, for a shelter, we will never know the human potential until we stop the FEAR that drives us all, we will never know what we would be capable of, if our needs were taken care of, if everyone was equally cared for and every life was recognized the same right to dignity and every basic living necessity was given unconditionally – to All.

So, we can wait for ISIS Rising or We can Rise and agree on a different way of living, we can set a Principle in motion that says that every living being has a right to a Life, it should be obvious, a given – but it’s not, why not make it so?

Check out a Living Income Guaranteed, a life with No Money in a World Run by It, is a Life of FEAR, we can end the FEAR for everybody by deciding on a different principle, Unconditional Life Support for All -and once a New Principle is in place, the details, the logistic, the rules can be fixed as we go.

Give up your Fears for Good, to Stand for the Life of All with A Living Income Guaranteed.

Day 434: Sderot and The Fun of Watching People Die

On the news today I read this

Israel-Gaza conflict: ‘Sderot cinema’ image shows Israelis with popcorn and chairs ‘cheering as missiles strike Palestinian targets’

I am not sure how to comment this if not asking that we take a hard look at ourselves and start wondering if there is something seriously evil about ourselves that we need to address and change.

Watching people die for real, and enjoying it, for some may not be too different to watching movies, we have become blurred in our understanding of what reality is, the proof is that we don’t even have clear recollection of our lives, that we tend to distort even our own memories and facts and turn them always to our advantage.

Drone killing is another example of overlapping reality with fantasy, how many times have those boy soldiers ‘drone killed’ during video games and felt nothing about it if not the elation of a winning moment?

So, how do we become surprised when we take our fantasy lives, our fantasy habits of rejoicing about deaths in the virtual world and then find some do that in the real physical world? We should not, we are grooming people for this kind of world and this kind of entertainment from birth.

One thing that could help us to change the course we are on is to face reality head on, for example, the people sitting on those couches on Sderot Hill should come face to face with the mothers who have lost their children in Gaza, or had them burnt and maimed as a result of those ‘fun fireworks’ some watch from afar.

It is our remoteness from reality that is killing Life around us, our landing will not be a comfortable one, what will Israeli mothers feel when faced with the sorrow of another mother, what will those that had fun at the expense of others face when looking at real suffering in the face?

My guess is that the awakening would be brutal, it will be brutal, but such awakening is what we really need, to stop doing what we are doing and Change.

This is the appeal of a Norwegian doctor, Dr. Mads Gilbert, working in the Gaza district

Don’t send bandages. Don’t send syringes. Don’t send medical teams. The most important medical thing you can do now is to force Israel to stop the bombing, and it is to lift the siege of Gaza.
Then the Palestinians will manage well themselves.

Sure, common sense would tell us that if the cause of death and wounds and civilian casualties is the bombing – ending the bombing would be the first thing to do. But here we are, we have to be told by a doctor what the common sensical solution would be or we would do all the other things he listed, we would send syringes, bandages, medical teams – because we accept wars as something beyond our ability to stop, we have accepted our warrysome behavior as normal, unavoidable, something we have to deal with and not STOP. Does this make sense, are We making sense at all?

We have a proposal to help sort ourselves out, it’s called a Living Income Guaranteed, what it will guarantee for all will be choice, the choice to participate in a war or not, just to name one, if everyone was guaranteed a living, I wonder, how many would sign up to kill other people in wars that are deemed necessary by those that have lost it completely, and sit in the button room looking for any excuse to press a button and start the war machine – whatever their reason/reasoning (hardly to see how to apply this word in this context by the way..) may be.

Consider this, maybe stopping wars is a choice we have not yet considered because we grew up believing that this is how countries solve their differences, or because this is how we solve our differences, by declaring war on each other, or because we need to make a living and we go and join the army, but the truth is we have never made different choices, like decide we will never again have a war and we’ll instead work to find solutions to our immoral/amoral killing of each other and learn to find ways to reconcile that are not bloody for anyone, that seek peace and harmony and the best for all parties involved.

Nor we have ever had a Living Income Guaranteed, we never had Our Living Guaranteed, our Lives are for sale and if we don’t change that point, we should not be surprised that we sit on couches enjoying watching people die, because we are living Death and not Life, and our hideous perception of Life as worthless needs to change to allow us to  make different choices, including the one to not enjoying watching other die in the name of some Ideal/Belief System/God or just, simply, for the heck of it.

Support a Living Income Guaranteed, to make sure everyone has the choice to a Dignified Life, let’s make wanting a Life Guaranteed for All our collective mission, to give to Others’ Lives the same worth and value we want for ourselves, because we can never have what we are not willing to give to others -with open arms.

Day 428: Are the Pitchforks Coming for the Plutocrats?

I have read a very interesting article by Nick Hanauer, the multibillionaire that has already been exposing the lie of ‘The Job Creators’ during a TED talk that became banned.

This is an extract from his great talk:

Anyone who says that rich people create jobs is lying – rich people don’t create jobs more than a squirrel created evolution. There have never been so much rich people as it is today. If rich people created jobs we would be drowning in jobs now.
 
Money doesn’t trickle down from the rich to the poor either, you just have to look at the world today and see that this isn’t true. The stock exchanges making more money than ever and we are only getting more and more poor people.

Funny how it sounds truer when spoken by one of the 1%ers, like in many other things, we give some the authority to make common sense claims and vow to only believe those that have acquired a patent for speaking up through, go figure, some system means, be it money or education. We authorize those that were system indoctrinated to promote ideas and beliefs about why things are the way they are and ask them advises on how to change them  – we are strange, clueless creatures so far.

Here is his latest article entitled

 

This guy is wide awake, I like the way he looks at Capitalism specifically because he loves Capitalism and yet he is able to see its many faults, that could be corrected by amending the starting point, by deciding that all must benefit and that, the whole benefiting, will benefit the few up on top way more than the trickle down fantasy that has not benefited the ones at the bottom -at all.

The ones at the top can count on the ones at the bottom spending money when they have it buying up products of the very corporations they own, while the opposite showed to not be true, people who are richer are not benefiting the economy more in proportion, they can’t buy 10000 pillows because they are richer, or 5000 cars, there is a limit to their ability to spend, which is not the case for the, currently, poor/poorer ones.
Those are the ones that could really boost an economy up.

Among the comments in his You tube video which was originally longer, here is one that struck me

‘This guy has the balls to show an earth centric solar system then starts his argument in the same fashion stating that the consumer is the center of job creation. The fact is, without the entrepreneur, without the loan or capital of the rich or those with savings, VC’s, without initial jobs created, and consumables consumers want already available does the consumer then even enter the equation. This guy is an idiot, and as proof I offer this: If the rich don’t create jobs, it’s only the demand for the product, why don’t time machines exist? I would love a time machine, and so would most consumers. If demand is the key to job creation, time machines and the associated jobs would surely exist, but guess what, they don’t because demand doesn’t create shit but fools. Jobs are initially created by entrepreneurs and capital from the rich. They bear all the burden of failure, the consumer risks nothing. This guy is a disgrace to TED and intelligent life in general.

 

mainly it struck me because the argument made is not valid at all but proves what Nick Hanauer just said, demand creates jobs, if we have not created a time machine is because those that really wanted one may already have it, who knows all the technological advancement that the public has not been made a part of because those with the loot wanted the benefits only for themselves? Wouldn’t you have done the same in their position? How do you protect what has been stolen from the whole to make it just yours, if you don’t make sure to always have an advantage on the rest of the pack?

Plus it proves that demand is there for bare, basic necessities, like a gas cooker, a washing machine, things that for some have already moved into the realm of the obvious, while they are not at all in a world where 2.5 billions don’t even have access to sanitation. Those people are not dreaming about a time machine, hello??

So, many of the comments of those that use any theory, model, philosophy and means to justify why some are entitled to way more than they need, while some have to go without the bare necessities, are part of the advantage I just spoke about, come on, wouldn’t you have meddled with education as well to raise a world of dumbed down, compliant people who believe what they are told no matter what common sense would state – how did we come to believe we had no rights of any sort to a Life otherwise?

Nick Hanauer said that he can see the pitchforks coming, he said as well that he was always an astute business man who could see how the future unfolds, I believe him, so my question would be, how come the other trickle-downers don’t see that coming?

What do they expect, that people will allow them to take away every one of their human rights, including the one to live and just roll over and die? Some will, those deeply lost in the master-slave construct might -but many won’t.

And for the ones versed in mathematics, we can easily figure out why the 1%ers are so afraid, they could be outnumbered without much effort and when those that are paid to protect them, the very buffer they had allowed into existence, the middle class, will disappear completely, their asses will be up for grabs and unhappy people can be mobilized with the stroke of a hand, they can in fact even be manipulated into revolutions just for a change up at the top (think Ukraine), has this not been done before?

Revolutions are not played out by calm rational people, they are the result of the stroke that broke the camel’s back, those on top have isolated themselves so much that they have lost the pulse of the situation, they can no longer feel the revolution’s breath on their necks and have erroneously taken signals like Occupy Wall Street and other manifestation of Public Outrage as transitory, as something that comes and goes and that will go away if they stay united and keep on not paying any attention to it.
Wrong, as Nick Hanauer said, if they keep not paying attention the whole game will blow up in their face and they won’t have seen it coming – if that is imaginable.

This specific point shows the disconnection between the top and the bottom, it shows as well why many who are reliant on the top ‘doing the right thing’ are in for a rude awakening – the right thing for the top is MORE for them, the $$$ bubble in which they have isolated themselves puts them at great risk for their lives, which is another reason why they don’t let go even one inch of the advantage they have on the rest, that space is their life insurance policy, the more the fear grows, the bigger the money buffer they will try to create for themselves.

We have more chances than those on top to see what is coming and how to prevent it, revolutions are hard to stop once they start because they become the excuse, the cesspool in which everyone can convey their life frustrations and justify the crimes resulting from it.

What we need to do is get together and design a better living condition for all, look at the case of raising the minimum wage to 15$/hour, as Nick Hanauer said, it boosted the economy of the cities who embraced this change, instead of fighting it, almost overnight.

So, what is it going to be? A revolution or a war to distract us from the revolution – what would be your pick?

None of the above is a good choice, imagine the suffering we would have to face just for the satisfaction of kicking some asses in the first case or to fight a war we can’t understand that turns into another money-making opportunity for the rich, stuck between a rock and a hard place.

If you can see both the need for change and the unnecessary damage a revolution or a war would bring us all, consider another alternative, like redesigning our economics models, introducing a model where everyone wins (it’s this or the pitchforks? – note to the One Percenters), where we defuse the anger by giving to each other without coercion what we need to live a dignified life, a new inclusive model where all parts and their needs are taken into account, consider how Life could be for All with a Living Income Guaranteed, it means we grant a Living, a Life to All, not a scrawny, pathetic survivalist life, no, a Dignified Life, we make sure everyone can expand their access to choice, to Life itself and in one go, as we come together, the pitchforks will be put down to rebuild a world we can be proud of.

 

 

Day 427: Humanity as Unesco Intangible Patrimony?

Silvano Agosti – Letter to Unesco

 

We have an Italian philosopher called Silvano Agosti that has been trying to reach Unesco and Onu through our Ministry of Culture to ask that ‘The Human Being’ be recognized as Patrimony of Humanity.

 ‘Our request to the United Nations is to name the Human Being “the pinnacle of humanity.”It is important to substitute the obsession “to become something or somebody else” with the awareness that every Human Being is born having within himself all that he needs “to be himself.”The Human Being is the prime masterpiece that nature has made in a billion years, but is such only until the age of three years old. Then a child is forced to become anything or anyone except himself– except what nature meant him to be.

 En el universo conocido, a lo largo de 5mil millones de años, el Ser Humano sigue siendo la mayor obra de arte hecha por la naturaleza, pero lo es solo hasta la edad de 3 años. Luego está presionado por la actual orden social, a convertirse en cualquier cosa, excepto sí mismo. La meta de la petición a las Naciones Unidas de nombrar el Ser Humano “patrimonio de la humanidad” es que cada persona descubra y sea consciente sobre el globo entero de su valor infinito. La obsesión de querer llegar a ser algo o alguien tiene que ser reemplazada por la conciencia que cada Ser Humano es unico e irrepetible y nace llevando en sí todo lo que necesita para ser sí mismo.’

 

When I learnt about this I found his perspective fascinating, more than anything I was fascinated about the idea that we treasure old creepy buildings and historical sites, monuments to and of our enslavement, but not Human or other creatures Lives.

Just think about the pyramids or the Great Wall of China and all the slaves that died building them, many of which are buried alongside the Wall or under the sand in Egypt, beings for which no special burial place was ever made because their lives were -and are- considered simply irrelevant and our obsessions with Monuments and ValueLess MasterPieces.

We have organizations designed to preserve them and not only that, to preserve the  ‘Intangible Patrimony of the Planet’, here we go

 

Intangible Cultural Heritage

The importance of intangible cultural heritage is not the cultural manifestation itself but rather the wealth of knowledge and skills that is transmitted through it from one generation to the next. The social and economic value of this transmission of knowledge is relevant for minority groups and for mainstream social groups within a State, and is as important for developing States as for developed ones.

Intangible cultural heritage is:

  • Traditional, contemporary and living at the same time: intangible cultural heritage does not only represent inherited traditions from the past but also contemporary rural and urban practices in which diverse cultural groups take part;
  • Inclusive: we may share expressions of intangible cultural heritage that are similar to those practised by others. Whether they are from the neighbouring village, from a city on the opposite side of the world, or have been adapted by peoples who have migrated and settled in a different region, they all are intangible cultural heritage: they have been passed from one generation to another, have evolved in response to their environments and they contribute to giving us a sense of identity and continuity, providing a link from our past, through the present, and into our future. Intangible cultural heritage does not give rise to questions of whether or not certain practices are specific to a culture. It contributes to social cohesion, encouraging a sense of identity and responsibility which helps individuals to feel part of one or different communities and to feel part of society at large;
  • Representative: intangible cultural heritage is not merely valued as a cultural good, on a comparative basis, for its exclusivity or its exceptional value. It thrives on its basis in communities and depends on those whose knowledge of traditions, skills and customs are passed on to the rest of the community, from generation to generation, or to other communities;
  • Community-based: intangible cultural heritage can only be heritage when it is recognized as such by the communities, groups or individuals that create, maintain and transmit it – without their recognition, nobody else can decide for them that a given expression or practice is their heritage.

______________________________

This Philosopher I am talking about is aware that we produce enough food to feed 10 billions people, that we let 35000 children to die every die of preventable causes, he is aware as well that we are lying about the future of employment and what is waiting for us down the road, which is not a renaissance but more unemployment, more austerity, more empty promises when we could just make an agreement, we could wake up to the Tangible Needs of All and change this world together instead.

After all, if we want to preserve a Cultural Heritage that has to be passed down from generation to generation, we need to keep Human Beings alive or there will be no generations to do that work and we will lose the ‘Intangible Masterpieces’ we felt the need to glorify and protect, we could even consider keep Human beings Living vs Surviving, to make sure they care at all to pass down the valuable by products vs the source of the value that we have, incredibly, once more, miss-placed.

I see what Silvano Agosti is trying to do as a provocation to bring attention to what we are forgetting, that supporting Life on the planet should be our first goal if we have to preserve anything of value, I see as well why the Ministry of Culture in Italy replied to him in 2011 that ‘The Human Being’, could not be granted such ‘privilege’ because he did not fit the description of an Intangible Heritage – he was living yes, but in the completely wrong- kindofway.

We can’t go on creating money grabbing organizations for the sole aim to collect and list folk songs and prayers while forgetting the Human Being, because that would make us INSANE and yet, we keep up these delusions and expand them every year, without questioning how we have come to place value on the ‘Intangible’ while forgetting the Tangible, Breathing, Living Beings of this Earth.

We have a proposal, it is a work in progress and we invite all to assist in fine-tuning it, this proposal is a stance that we take and ask others to take with us, the Proposal is to give a Living Income Guaranteed to All the people on the Planet that need one, because they are real, tangible, breathing living beings -just like us.

Check it out, see if you can find the common sense of supporting Life into Existence and stop fighting to have our survival granted, we can do so much better than this, we just have to make up our mind and then move together to achieve what we see needs to be done, to create a World that Works for All and leave the non-sense we valued behind, not to be remembered but hopefully, to be forever, gladly, forgotten.
