Descartes - 1

devolution |ˌdevəˈlo͞oSHən|
noun
1) formal descent or degeneration to a lower or worse state: the devolution of creative inquiry into empirical dogma; resulting in a religion posing as science:

Huh. Where to begin. With the behaviorists?

“You can’t convince a chimpanzee to give you a banana with the promise it will get 20 more bananas in chimpanzee heaven. It won’t do it. But humans will” -Yuval Noah Harari

Descartes believed in God, and one can extrapolate from that, a heaven. And you’d have to believe in a heaven to set yourself up with a fatal trap you don’t know how to undo. Sort of like the trap where technology to clean up, and dispose of, the melted cores at Fukushima hasn’t been invented yet; recalling Einstein’s much neglected observation:

“We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them”

Applying  a spiritual dimension to this, It’d make much more sense to assert ‘man made god in man’s image’ considering the stupidity of our divine inspirations, not only origins:

It is not yet known if the fuel melted into or through the containment vessel’s concrete floor, and determining the fuel’s radioactivity and location is crucial to inventing the technology to remove the melted fuel”

In other words, General Electric & Westinghouse et al, had sent our world’s population off to enjoy a nuclear skydiving hobby, the planes are provided for your opportunity to jump, and you’re provided a placebo parachute, because the ripcord hasn’t been invented yet. Uh… heaven bound? Just wait, it gets ‘better.’

“‘The Problem of Objectivity’ challenges the Cartesian picture according to which there is a metaphysical distinction between the inner and the outer, knowledge of one’s own mind is more fundamental and secure than knowledge of other minds, knowledge is based on data given to the individual mind, and acquisition of knowledge is based on a progression from the subjective to the objective”

Well, that’s quite a mouth-full, but, maybe there’s someone out there with similar but better distilled observation:

“The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment” -Theoretical physicist Bernard d’Espagnat

And so it is ‘human consciousness’, a-la-Cartesian ‘objectivity’ based in ‘science’, with all of its glorious empirical dogma, creates a machine that, when it breaks, not only is it incredibly toxic, the technology to clean it up hasn’t been invented yet. Chimps were never so stupid. When the behaviorists invented a scale comparing a chimp’s IQ to that of a human, we should probably have named it the human ‘narciss-o-meter’

I once heard a Native American tell a joke story about an indigenous champion wrestler. In short, when this Indian had finally earned a shot at a professional championship match, he had to meet ‘The Pretzel’ with a reputation for turning his opponents into German pastry. When this Indian had been put into ‘the pretzel hold’ and his demise was assured, his coaching corner couldn’t bear to watch and averted their eyes. But when they looked again, their Indian was standing with referee holding his arm in the air, he’d won! Asked “HOW DID YOU DO IT?!” The Indian replied: “It was all but over. The Pretzel had me in his pretzel hold. It was then, I felt something, hanging in front of my face, and I bit it. You know, it is amazing what a man can do when he bites himself in the balls.”

Now, what this next has to do with ‘man’ biting himself in the balls, and if that’s actually an ‘objective’ solution, I will leave to your conjecture:

Suppose, in 2029 or 2019, next week, or whenever, a sun generated electro-magnetic pulse destroys a major portion of, or all of the Northern hemisphere’s large transformers, critical to propping up (the heart of) the grid and the replacements are not yet manufactured. It follows, all of the available reserve resources have to be, first and foremost, directed to keeping Europe’s 186, and the USA’s 104, of the world’s five hundred or so nuclear reactors, cooled. This happens from fuel reserves which must be pumped from underground storage; and the only means to do that is to use severely limited above ground fuel reserves to recover and deliver the fuel necessary to cool the unspent & spent cores and manufacturing the many heavy transformers & repairing the grid will require years, possibly decades. But, social upheaval, related to immediate survival, prevented this. Five hundred Fukushimas (shortly) later, and then two hundred million years into the future, radiation adapted ‘intelligent’ life manifests, descended from cockroaches, who reinvent Fukushima:

I stole this preceding story (and ‘modified’ it) from a neocon with a habit of lying or self-deceit, I’m not certain which, or maybe he went as far as he thought he could run with the EMP-transformers-grid scenario and hoped someone would fill in what amounts to ‘lies by omission.’ In any case, the guy had been kicked out of the Bush Jr neocon ‘intelligence’ circle, no matter the reasons given, that almost makes him smell right.

In his: Worst Case EMP Scenario? Half in the U.S. Dead that could been titled ‘best case EMP scenario’ Michael Maloof cites NASA as a source:

“with an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, generated from the sun’s flares – some of which can be up to 10 times the size of the Earth – the unprotected grid, including transformers, electrical components and automated control systems that everyone takes for granted in their everyday lives, could either be severely damaged or fried, taking months if not years to replace.

“NASA estimates that a direct hit to Earth from one of these enormous flares would have a catastrophic impact on the nation’s critical infrastructures over a very wide geographical area.

“In the first year alone, NASA estimates, such a disaster could cost just the U.S. upwards of $2 trillion. It also would take from four to 10 years to recover – if that even would be possible – and affect the lives of some 160 million people, threatening starvation and death.

“Some EMP experts say that such a catastrophic event could wipe out America’s urban centers, due to their total dependency on critical infrastructures for electricity, communications, food and water delivery, oil and gas, transportation, automated banking and financial institutions and even emergency services.

“The experts say grocery stores, for example, would have their shelves cleared in a matter of hours due to the panic that would sweep the population. Normally, grocery stores carry a maximum of three days of products before being restocked. However, restocking would come to a halt due to the inability of trucks to function, with fueling stations unable to pump the fuel needed to run the vehicles”

Nowhere in his article does Maloof mention what happens to the nuclear reactors. What the f**k does NASA actually think happens with those? Oh, that’s right, we can generate a plan and pull it out of our anus when an EMP hits, because we never figured out what we’d do about it, prior to it happening. Just like Fukushima.

Do you suppose, with the real ‘worst case scenario’ on their desks (it’s impossible to imagine this ‘problem’ has never been identified) those ‘powers that be’ would begin dismantling the world’s nuke plants, post-haste? Nah. Too much ‘quality of life’ loss for the shareholder. They’ll build you a virtual space-ark instead and you know where that actually leaves you, dear reader, that is ‘in situ’, or just another body in a very wide-spread mulch pile that will be a feast for the cockroaches.

Devolution Part 2

A former Special Forces Sergeant of Operations and Intelligence, Ronald Thomas West is a retired paralegal/investigator (living in exile) whose work focus had been anti-corruption and human rights. Ronald is published in International Law as a layman (The Mueller-Wilson Report, co-authored with Dr Mark D Cole) and has been adjunct professor of American Constitutional Law at Johannes Gutenberg University, Mainz, Germany (for English credit, summer semester 2008.) Ronald’s formal educational background is primarily social psychology. His therapeutic device is satire –

‘Liberals’ or ‘The Apes Will Rise’

Liberals are hard to lampoon. It’s like trying to create interesting satire around a personality made of fungal ooze… for instance Hillary who has no personality, only a sort of freaked out laugh with head back and mouth wide open .. and Bill wouldn’t go there because Hillary was incapable of, or uninterested in, giving a quality blow-job. So, Bill didn’t keep his ‘willy’ at home and the whole thing turned into a ‘high crimes and misdemeanors’ Polish joke. Ok, so that’s a start, but this one isn’t a satire about Hillary, Monica, Bill and Congress making fellatio into a world headline event. Rather it’s about a larger liberal problem of a social IQ scoring in the 20-34 range on a scale determining functionality:

“Basic intellectual tasks, including language, are difficult to learn. Can learn some self-care behavior but remain dependent on others. There are usually motor problems and physical anomalies. Usually not employable”

^ Note the above ‘severely retarded’ criteria does not preclude employment as a politician in DC.

Now, if there were to be developed a flexible social IQ scale tied to Congress approval rating, I propose the party controlling the House of Representatives determines the functional social IQ, as of this composition, rating the Republicans with a solid score of 16. It follows, the Republicans are soundly established as “profoundly retarded”

“Usually multi-handicapped with obvious physical deformities and short life expectancy. Heavily dependent on others. Can learn no or only the very simplest tasks”

With physical deformities measured in layered on telegenic make-up for sound-byte tv news, and life expectancy manifest in a political ‘sell by’ date determined by the vagaries of lobbyists (the ‘heavily dependent on others’ criteria), we turn our sights on delving into the higher IQ of America’s liberal leadership, but first a bit of explaining is in order:

Of the many cynical laughs I’ve experienced in relation to liberals making exceptionally dumbfounding decisions, there are a few that stand out in memory. One such event was, liberals behind a voter registration drive in Indian country, for the 2012 elections. Now, my honest belly laugh in relation to this particular event was, Native Americans have historically, typically voted conservative. Some might wonder why? Simple answer is; liberals have a long history of creating solutions for social problems in a cultural context they have little understanding of, compounding those problems more often than not. Conservatives, on the other hand, have a history of neglect in relation to Native Americans, and consequently it is the liberals are perceived as the worse offenders or ‘meddlers’ in Indian affairs. Conservatives, therefor, are less likely to imagine up solutions for problems they don’t understand whereas liberals are inclined to shove solutions that don’t work down peoples’ throats because ‘they know better.’ At the end of the day, the lower conservative social IQ in the legislative body, unable or disinclined to imagine up all sorts of ‘good’ things for other peoples lives, works out to the better solution for certain disadvantaged populations.

Now, it stands to reason the higher IQ in liberals will translate to a certain ability to grasp they’re obviously the more important people with superior ideas. So, let’s have a go at how it is liberal methodology translates into sensible decision making for the rest of us.

As a baseline comparison, we’ll consider how it is conservative monitor lizards look back on the ‘good old days’ of dinosaur climate with its 400 parts per million CO2. This translates into attitude of ‘hands off’ the fossil fuels industry. Hey! If it’s not broke, don’t fix it! (never-mind it was ‘liberal’ democracies run amok had initiated the industrial revolution, a phenomena conservative monitor lizards have forever failed to grasp)

Liberals, on the other hand, are ‘reasoning’ higher primates with a cerebral cortex:

Chimpanzee Brain, Drawing

^ evolution’s ‘monkey business’

Any liberal chimp provided with a loaded AK-47, can plainly see they are, or should be, competent to deal with anything, not dissimilar to our present liberal administration’s policies training commandos in Africa:

 

^ the Apes will rise

And because the liberal value of tolerance is held to be superior to xenophobic behaviors, it makes sense for the Kurds to be split into four minority divisions with no territory to call their own. In this current version of events, the Turks, Syrians, Iraqis and Iranians will all be forced to learn the superior liberal value of tolerance with the enforced subjection of the Kurdish nation’s aspiration to cultural integrity. This can surely be accomplished with extending the Kurds ‘minority rights.’ But hey! When American allied conservative dinosaurs are the ‘turks’ in power and xenophobia is on the rise, ‘minority rights’ for Kurds is a minority’s reality of no rights at all. But this is a minor inconvenience or bump on the road to what surely must be liberal enlightenment, right? Oh yeah, it’ll all sort itself out, because arbitrary, artificial borders are sacro-sanct, insuring the Turks and Kurds will be locked in a perpetual, murderous struggle on the road to liberalism’s enlightened vision of multi-cultural tolerance.

So, to now, how’s that frontal lobe ‘reasoning’ power of the cerebral cortex working out? Let’s look a bit closer to home:

America’s conservative monitor lizards are in a dinosaur’s basal-ganglia rage over the liberals’ cerebral cortex value of multiculturalism having neglected to explain to millions of immigrants the full implication of what it means to live in a ‘secular democracy.’

reptilian-brain

^ function of the basal ganglia

Now, if it had been the business of Freedom House and the National Democratic Institute to promote an understanding that; when you relocate to America your kids are going to be free to be depraved as they please, marry outside their culture and religion, and basically live apostate lives, no matter what you think of this ‘freedom’, and whether you like it or not, well, that’d been a ‘good’ thing. But these CIA fronts were too busy promoting ‘color revolutions’ to do anything sensible like provide simple explanations that’d have stopped a different species of conservative immigrants in their tracks. And so instead, America’s basal ganglia types sense their xenophobic monitor lizard habitat is threatened by another species of reptile and they’re lashing out at anything that moves, whether suitable prey or not. Well, after all, you know what science says about an exotic species invasion of another species habitat, it’s just not conducive to good ecological outcomes.

There Be Dragons

^ Rush Limbaugh feels ‘threatened’

This brings into question the soundness of a multiculturalism doctrine and how it is liberals expected inter-species mixing was a good idea because everyone should have innate intelligence enough to be ‘tolerant.’ We can contrast this to the conservative monitor lizards pining for the ‘good old days’ and arrive a determination of empirical science showing whether the reactionary behaviors of dinosaurs should be defended with provision of nature reserves to protect the ‘threatened’ species.

Sadly for the liberal theory of multiculturalism and the associated idea introduction of exotic species would in theory see innate ‘tolerance’ manifest; when contrasting the present environment of social tensions to former model, a social-scientific scrutiny clearly demonstrates the instincts of the basal ganglia types had been ‘in the good old days’ quite hospitable. You understood the species in your habitat, there was law and order and a more or less general stability. This result demands nature reserves for the xenophobic are not only practical but actually necessary to conform societies to a reasonable standard of behavior…

…but then, evolution had demanded a liberal’s cerebral cortex manifest with its experiment of ‘reason’
