Wide Angle and Telephoto Lens Distortion Tutorial

Having personally owned several expensive cameras and lenses over the years and including friendships with a few special effects people and radio broadcast gurus over the years I can totally agree with this tutorial.. Wide angle and telephoto lens distortion for the purpose of deceiving YOUR eyes…Been going on for decades where Hollywood and government is concerned.. They don’t merely rely upon words/terms to fool YOU… A picture, video, used in media news no doubt is worth a thousand lying words…

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.

The Strength of Individualism, The Weakness of Collectivism

I contend that there is no greater strength and power than that of combined individualism and independence. Most of all the greatest accomplishments of men came from those true individuals allowed to carry out their independent thoughts. Governments, on the other hand, thrive in the collective where manipulative actions toward the people are necessary in order to maintain the masses into a near hypnotic state of silent acquiescence, stripping them of any sort of power to push back against the governments that threaten them.

Imagine how things would be if the majority of people were a collection of true individuals and independent thinkers. What power would lie in their hands? Can a collective exist of independents? In theory, yes! Governments and those who promote governmental collectivism must fear the thought for it threatens their very existence. Sounds like war to me.

Perhaps the greatest example of the power and strength of individualism can be found in Bible history. We may have head knowledge of the existence of Yahweh’s “Church,” but do we truly understand its composition? Some would argue that the congregations of churches, making up the “Church,” is similar to the collective existence of governments. This may be true in some cases, but the true Church of Christ is made up of real individuals, each with their independent, spirit-filled relationship with their Savior. There can be no other everlasting existence even though so many are caught up in the collective of the church instead of the individual salvation of their Savior.

It is a rare commodity these days to find actual individuals with independent thoughts and ideas. Media so heavily influences and controls us that it seems impossible to escape the onslaught. Life in the United States exists between two enemy collectives – Republican and Democrat. Absent independent thought, each person eventually acquiesces to one side or the other, eager to become automatonic True Believers, participants in each party’s form of Romanistic Bread and Circuses.

If it’s not the false paradigm of Republican and Democrat, groups and mass movements are countless within our society, each bent on achieving their selfish agendas at the expense of ostracising anyone and everyone who doesn’t eagerly conform to their dogma.

Remembering that the collective can only exist by controlling the minds and thoughts of the masses, we see the need for groups and movements to make enemies out of those who don’t conform. I’m reminded of the Star Trek enemy of the United Starship Federation – The Borg. The Borg, a combination of human and robot, is a collective. They call themselves the Collective. None have independent thought. On the contrary, they all share their thoughts in a continual bombardment of back and forth, never-ending, noise. One of the missions of the Borg is to “assimilate” anyone who is not like them. To “assimilate,” people are turned into half human, half robot creatures who almost never stray from the collective as it would mean certain death. Are the Borg that much unlike what we are seeing today with our collectives in American Society?

Eric Hoffer, the author of “The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements,” writes: “The permanent misfits can find salvation only in a complete separation from the self; and they usually find it by losing themselves in the compact collectivity of a mass movement.”

He also states: “The quality of ideas seems to play a minor role in mass movement leadership. What counts is the arrogant gesture, the complete disregard of the opinion of others, the singlehanded defiance of the world.”

As I have repeatedly stated, collectives can only exist absent the individual with independent thoughts and ideas. To ensure that absence, Hoffer says that what must exist within the collective, “is the arrogant gesture, the complete disregard of the opinion of others, the singlehanded defiance of the world.”

This exists everywhere!!!

From the outside of each collective looking in, most often “quality of ideas” is missing. It is replaced by the importance of “sticking together” and “remaining united” while echoing the propaganda crafted by the collective – a real “defiance of the world.”

Straying from, or at least presenting independent thought and individualism, within a collective, in our society, often does not end in death to that brave soul truth seeker, but they are truly ostracised, kicked out of the gang for failure to assimilate and remain the robotic servant it is intended for them to be, thus removing any hope of achieving another of man’s great accomplishments.

Perhaps you, too, have been a victim of being expelled from a collective. Being a part of a group for the purpose of educating and bringing to the forefront important and truthful information pertaining to the subject of that collective, is not a bad thing. Should one dare disagree with the collective, or present truth that might be contrary to the collective’s talking points, you are removed from further communication – essentially black-balled.

If the most important accomplishments of men have come from individuals with independent thoughts and the freedom to exercise their freedoms, why then is it that our society seems bent on ensuring that never happens. An independent thinker might wonder if this act isn’t part of the intentions of another collective, threatened by the existence of those of us who honestly cherish their individuality. To them, we must assimilate.

If we are so much assimilated into the myriad of collectives, how can we have any hope of individuality and independence?

And isn’t that the entire premise of which I am attempting to convey? Being in this state, it is a near impossibility, short a miracle, for anyone to recognize they have no real independence, no real freedom, and certainly no respect for being an individual other than the one dictated by the collective.

Come out of her my people.

“Social Media is Ripping Apart Society

The original link that I found on Drudge, is here. The video link provided below, is the link, time-marked, for readers/viewers to see and hear the former Facebook executive tell about what social media is doing to our society and those worldwide.

Of course, the article with the Youtube introduction says, “…probably make you think twice about your social media use.” It might “make you think twice” but it will have zero effect on its use. By design, Facebook is destructive, and yes it does “rip apart society” but the addiction is so strong that it cannot be broken.

Those bent on social destruction have done a marvelous job. And you will keep on aiding and abetting the destruction.

PERVERSION: “We stood there crying” As The Polar Bear Died

*Editor’s Note* – So deceived! There is little hope for anyone so mentally disturbed and for those who think that if there is any such thing as global warming it is caused because I fart and drive my car. To stand, as a grown adult and cry because a bear was dying is beyond perversion. To immediately blame a bear’s death on man-caused (other than government) climate change is just plain blinded ignorance.

And yet, this deception is now running so deeply into a perverted society that when the co-founder of an environMENTAList group, one of those crying, admitted they knew the bear didn’t die from global warming, it doesn’t stop the freaks from demanding man must be killed in order to save the planet.

“In August, this bear would have been only recently off the sea ice: since most bears are at their fattest at this time of year, something unusual had to have affected his ability to hunt or feed on the kills he made when other bears around him did not starve and die,” Zoologist Susan Crockford wrote on her blog.

“It could have been something as simple as being out-competed for food in the spring by older animals,” Crockford wrote. “But if sea ice loss due to man-made global warming had been the culprit, this bear would not have been the only one starving: the landscape would have been littered with carcasses.”<<<Read More>>>
