Take charge of your own life: The first steps to Food Independence
-by Vicki Batts
Food Independence is a growing concern for many people, especially as access to foods that are free of GMOs, pesticides and other chemicals grows more and more restricted. For many, self-sufficiency is a path not only to independence and readiness, but a path towards a healthier lifestyle overall. Indeed, dependence on Big Agriculture and other corporate schemes is a modern sham — but it is possible to live and eat without depending on corporations...
I Don't Know: The Arising of Intelligence
Don't try to understand life. Experience
Everything happens for a reason.
Wait, no it doesn’t! Everything just happens.
We want life to make sense, and so we invent reasons why things happen. We pretend to know what we don’t know to avoid living with uncertainty.
But by not admitting to our lack of understanding we miss an opportunity to tap into a far greater intelligence. We walk right past an unlocked door to freedom – freedom from the limited sphere of thought... see more
Dog With 6-Pound Tumor Rescued Just In Time After Being Abandoned At A Kill Shelter
-by Brianna Acuesta
Though many of us wish that all dogs and cats and other domestic animals all had loving homes and families, that is simply not the case in the United States or any other nation in the world. In the U.S., there is a sharp distinction between the county and city shelters and independent rescues, and the former is exactly where Clyde, a 1-year-old puppy, was dropped off last week. His owner had taken him to a high-kill shelter, which most county shelters have to be because of space and monetary restrictions, and instead of informing staff of this dog’s name he simply said they should euthanize him... see more

The Internet of Things: A New World Order?
Was the marketing hook 'The Internet of Things' conjured up before the technical definition? Are we being persuaded to spend money on fending off yet another fantasy tsunami of data? Already, we have televisions that listen to, and report, your conversations; so are we facing the Science Fiction future of gadgets that report where you go, who you visit and what medications you take? As Robert Sheldon says; "It's big, almost too big to get your arms around" -See more
Government Report: In 20 Years A.I. Implants Will Allow umans To Control Our World
The agenda to push towards Transhumanism is on course. It has now been by the House of Lords that within 20 years A.I. implants will allow us to control our homes, enhance our muscles, cells and repair our bodies.
John McNamara, who works at IBM Hursley Innovation Centre, in Hampshire, presented evidence to the House of Lords Artificial Intelligence Committee, which is considering the economic, ethical and social implications of the giant leap into using A.I... see more
10 Characteristics of Highly Evolved Beings
-by Jeff Street
Highly evolved beings, and the civilizations that they create, embrace principles and ways of being that create highly beneficial outcomes for all. Their civilizations are characterized by cooperation, harmony, and love rather than competition, conflict, and fear. The net result is civilizations where freedom, prosperity, and happiness abound. Their example serves as a great model for Humanity to emulate if it truly wants to create the better world that many of us are hoping for.
Privacy under attack as internet “fingerprinting” tracks your every move
-by Isabelle Z.
If the dwindling level of privacy offered by internet use makes you more than a little uncomfortable, you might not want to hear about the latest tracking technique developed by a Pennsylvania professor of computer science. Yinzhi Cao of Lehigh University has come up with a way to make “fingerprinting” work across multiple browsers with near-complete accuracy… see more
Becoming what you are
-by Robert Anton Wilson
If you stroll through a large art museum, you will notice that Van Gogh does not paint the same world as Rembrandt, Picasso does not see things the way Goya did, Georgia O’Keefe doesn’t much resemble Rivera, Salvador Dali looks like nobody but himself, and, in general, no world-class artist became a “classic” by doing what somebody else had already done or even what everybody else in his/her own era did.
And in science, the names of Einstein, Dirac, the Curies, Bohr, Heisenberg, Schroedinger, John Bell etc. live on because none of them took Newton as Holy Gospel: they all made unique and unpredictable innovations in basic theory…
Hey McDonald’s — Just Because You Have A Vegan Burger Doesn’t Mean Vegans Will Eat It
-by Alanna Ketler
As a teenager I worked at McDonald’s. I became an expert in the drive-thru and even received a round of applause from the staff once during a busy lunch rush for taking every order effectively and without making a single mistake. I loved this job at the time, as it was a lot of fun. Yet I remember the day I questioned why we didn’t have a vegetarian menu, to which my manager responded, “People who don’t eat meat wouldn’t want to eat at McDonald’s even if there were a vegetarian option.” And you know what? I couldn’t agree more... see more
A Brazilian Shaman Reveals the Dark Side of “Positive Thinking”
Have you ever been told you just need to “think positive” and your problems will go away? Or that to achieve what you want in your life, all you need to do is visualize it and it will end up appearing? It’s an approach to life that’s been popular for decades thanks to books like Think and Grow Rich and How to Win Friends and Influence People. But does it really help us to live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. Not exactly, according to this Brazilian shaman initiated in the traditions of the Amazon Rainforest... see more
New fingerprint tech hints at “offender’s state of mind” – and detects gender, recent diet and sexual activity
-by Isabelle Z.
As technology advances, it often comes at the cost of our personal privacy, whether it’s GPS tracking technology, browsers sharing your history with advertisers, or smart TVs recording and transmitting your personal conversations. The latest major setback for those of us who are uncomfortable with so much personal information floating around comes in the form of a new fingerprint testing technology that is set to be used in courts in just a few months... see more
7 Ways To Naturally Increase Your Mood & Vibrational Frequency
-by Jennifer Sodini
Within the spiritual community, terms like “raise your vibration” and “elevate your frequency” seem to circulate many conscious conversations. These terms can be taken in a literal sense, as you can literally feel when someone has a low vibe, or a dense frequency, as these circumstances usually lend themselves to less than ideal experiences. On the flip side, when you are feeling good, or a situation is really “light” and vibing high, the same ripple effect of consciousness happens within the space you occupy — and the feelings of goodness can be felt by most anyone who is open to receive that higher state of consciousness... see more
Millennials top 20 fears reveal an astonishing decline in self-reliance and practical intelligence
-by Jhoanna Robinson
Researchers from Goldsmiths University in London found out that not being able to find a WiFi spot and forgetting passwords to different online log-in accounts are among the biggest fears of modern millennials.
If this sounds insane to you, baby boomer, imagine what your reaction will be when you find out that millennials are also afraid that the avocado they just opened will turn out to not be ripe, and that there will be a shortage of Prosecco. (Related: Millennials are totally unprepared for the realities of life, study finds.)
This is vastly different from the concerns of young people from 10 years ago; back in the now ancient 1997, individuals were worried about not finding “the one”, not being able to pay rent on time, and overexposing their photographs. People in 2017, however, are anxious about leaving their phones at home and having to buffer online shows for a long time.
Social media “likes” are also a big thing for today’s millennials – they say they spend an average of around five minutes just to edit a photo that they plan to post and that they won’t be happy until they get at least 44 likes.
The top 20 fears and anxieties – also known as “first world problems” – that millennials in 2017 have are: See more
