A Year in Review Might More Resemble Simply a Look to the Future Which Is No More Than the Past

When I began blogging, about 15 years ago, I used to pen a piece in which I would take another look at what I thought to be the important issues of the preceding year. Much of that subject matter was about hunting, fishing, wildlife and the outdoors.

I thought about doing something like that again but decided against it, and instead present one item of this past year that points to our future, which is our present, which is our past. Things sometimes really don’t change that much if you open your eyes.

It seems everywhere we turn today there is some form of “Artificial Intelligence” (AI). This should be no surprise to a person of awareness, but to many, they see AI as innovative, modern and even incomprehensible; something of the future and futuristically advanced beyond comprehension – our older generation.

IBM’s version of AI comes in the identity of “Watson.” Google has their’s and of course, Amazon has Alexa and Echo. We see ads on television for face recognition software to access your cell phone, “eye” pad, laptop, etc. Perhaps you’ll not be able to buy or sell unless you have all this stuff?

The only thing that’s really new about this so-called artificial intelligence, is the way in which we are being brainwashed and mind controlled. The propaganda – some call it facts, history, data, information – is controlled and fed to us in doses and by means in which we are programmed to handle. Artificial Intelligence is nothing more than the same written information that has always been available to us but proportioned out in desired bits that us lazy automatons can get by simply asking a machine a question. Can you imagine, short of manipulation of our physical bodies, any better way to ensure that what can be learned, heard or read is what is intended for us, is control-fed to us by Watson, Google, and Alexa?

I learned a long time ago that history is written by the victors of war. History, it seems, only knows war. History, which also includes all information (yes that’s difficult to conceive), is controlled by the ruling powers (the Victors of wars) from the beginning until the end. In short, what we learn, hear, and read, specifically in our modern eras, is what is intended for us to learn, hear, and read. When ruling powers decide that the known existence of written documents (much more difficult to control) is undesirable, every effort is made to rid the world of that information, or at least control it. Perhaps I can give you two examples.

The Library of Alexandria, in Egypt, was considered the largest collection of documents, recorded history and writings amassed throughout ancient history. According to some historians, prior to its burning, the library was dwindling away over a period of 800 years. We can only guess as to whether this action was deliberate or not in order to rid the world of unwanted documents to control what was learned, heard and read, in order that we might be fed “artificial intelligence.” This might be reinforced by the fact that we are told, that certain “intellectuals,” numbering as many as 150, were kicked out of the country.

Some historians state that when Julius Ceasar was in Alexandria in 48 BCE, during his battles there the library was “accidentally” burned. Reassurance? Completion of a task? Who ruled most of the world then? And, yes, Ceasar sent his own people to the Library in Alexandria to “copy” and “rewrite” as many documents as they could. Hail Ceasar!

Another example might be the War of 1812. This was the war in which Washington, D.C. was burned. It is believed by some that the act of burning Washington was to rid the world of documents in which the King of Great Britain, as well as certain members of the U.S. Government, did not want the rest of the world to see and to never be passed down through history.

Many scholars and intellects of this world have read such documents as James Ussher’s “Annals of the World,” or A.T. Jones’ “The Two Republics,” the comparison of the United States and Rome, and “The Works of Josephus” by Flavius Josephus, a Jerusalem-born writer and historian. These are all essential historical writings of accounts of events that took place throughout history. There are many, many more writings available as well.

In reading and studying The Annals of the World, the reader gets to examine the accounts of more than just one historian and the writings of the victors of all the wars. You soon see that braggadocio behavior embellishes the events and thus with the knowledge that the victors write the history, we can never be certain how accurate anything is that we read. That is why it is important to be very well-read, for without vast knowledge of events who are we to claim the high ground when it comes to truth?

Not that any of these writings aren’t important, but I wonder how many have never heard of these works?

In our education factories of today that have run their course, what our children learn is lacking in historical truth. With each rapidly passing generation of technology, are we to soon see school buildings becoming dinosaurs? After all, simply ask Alexa what it is you need to know. That’s easy! Alexa in every home! Alexa on every wrist!

When I was a child, I was taught how to count or “make” change. We all buy goods and still use fiat currency as a means of exchanging the currency for those goods. Today when you make a purchase with cash, if there is change due, the clerk looks at the computer screen (cash register) and it tells them how much change should be returned to the customer. This computer display is, in fact, artificial intelligence. It just didn’t have a good name until now. One has to wonder if the computer gave the wrong amount of change, would the clerk or the customer know the difference?

In fact, isn’t just about everything put before our eyes artificial intelligence? Would we know if it wasn’t?

Our future is headed for more of the same. As eager, pre-programmed appliances that we have become, persons are being replaced with gadgets loaded with “Artificial Intelligence” – that is ONLY the stuff THEY want you to learn, hear and read.

Welcome to your future. What will you do about this?

I think I already know the answer.
