Scientists are concerned that computers are already overtaking us in their abilities, raising the prospect that we could lose control of them altogether. Pictured is the Terminator film, in which robots take over – a prospect that could soon become a reality
Last year, scientists made a driverless car that learned by watching humans
But even the creators of the car did not understand how it learned this way
In another study, a computer could pinpoint people with schizophrenia
Again, its creators were unsure how it was able to do this
It’s easy for very wealthy people to act like having money isn’t such a big deal. “Anyone who thinks money is ever ‘just money’ couldn’t have much of it,” as Charles Van Doren says in the movie Quiz Show.
But occasionally a person with quite a lot of money demonstrates that he still thinks reasonably and practically about what money is good for. Such is the case with the ridiculously symmetrical, highly objectified Mad Men star Jon Hamm, who toldWealth Simple his thoughts on stacking paper for their money diaries series.
First off, Hamm is not a lifelong blueblood — he’s held plenty of lowly service jobs that taught him about the value of hard work:
I was a busboy and a dishwasher, and eventually I worked my way up the ladder and became a waiter. Sweet Rose was a sweet place. I learned how to cook and how to keep a clean kitchen. I learned how to be nice to people and to ask for help when I need it. I learned to love work and find meaning in it. To this day, I like going to work, clocking in and clocking out, the satisfaction of a job well done.
He knows firsthand how service jobs foster compassion for humanity — something rich people are notably bad at:
The appreciation you have for anyone working in a service capacity goes up radically the longer you work a service job yourself — you quickly learn what a difference a little bit of kindness and common courtesy can make for people. It’s important to know how to treat people, and to learn how to respond when someone you’re working with is having a bad day.
He worked as a teacher at his high school in St. Louis, and learned how undercompensated they are, so now he donates his money to students there:
Teachers in general are pretty under-respected and underpaid. That’s a real drag. Investing in higher teacher salaries is one of the most obvious things we could do to improve life in our society. I spent two years teaching drama, and then came back to L.A. Since then, I’ve found a little success, and now I’ve been able to endow a scholarship for John Burroughs students in my mother’s name: the Deborah Garner Hamm Memorial Scholarship. We just helped one kid to graduate college, and another one is working his way through right now. That’s been a gratifying way for me to spend some money.
He knows that money isn’t magic happy juice:
Money, for me, is a means to an end: to pay your bills and eat. Growing up, we were never rich, but I was around money a lot — I had friends who had money. And I didn’t see that people with money seemed any happier than those who got by on less. I’ve never been driven by money — there are more important things to life.
But he doesn’t pretend not to need it, either:
But not having money can be a hindrance — it can make life hard, and you spend time worrying about not having it. To me, the main reason to have money is to remove the hindrances that accompany being broke. Once those hindrances are out of the way, it doesn’t matter if you have a ton of money or just a comfortable amount.
Sure, that’s easy to say when your net worth is reportedly $30 million, but at least he recognizes it can’t solve his shitty life problems, either. Hamm recently went to rehab to deal with alcohol abuse and ended his long-term relationship with Jennifer Westfeldt in the public eye—both the kinds of problems money simultaneously helps to create and to fix, but cannot shield you from.
Yet all this gives him something else money can’t buy: perspective.
Some people say that the older you get, the wiser you become and the easier life gets, but I don’t find that to really hold true. As you get older, making decisions can become even harder, since it feels like there’s so much more at stake. There’s more at stake with relationship stuff, with career stuff, and with money stuff. I think the best advice I have for anyone facing tough decisions is not to let the stakes loom so large in their mind that making a decision becomes impossible. You have to keep a healthy sense of perspective — don’t sweat every choice too much or overthink things. If you take a wrong step, you’ll find the right one.
The great seal on the back of the US dollar bill (above) is full of occult symbolism. Even the most hardened sceptic would have a difficult time dismissing the following features on the bill as mere ‘coincidence.’
13 leaves in the olive branches
13 bars & stripes
13 letters in: ‘E Pluribus Unum’
13 stars in the green crest above
13 stones in the pyramid
13 letters in ’Annuit Coeptis’
Then just below the pyramid there’s‘Novus Ordo Seclorum’ that translates, ‘New Secular Order’ or ‘New World Order.’ Why the number 13? What about the other features?
I will answer later. First, a couple of significant questions seldom asked.
What are the 2 biggest forms of enslavement on humanity?
-Answer: The monetary system and religion.
Both are massively entrenched in deception which is the basis of how the enslavement on humanity works: In many ways, the more attached to either the more immersed one becomes in illusion… I’m sure you’ve heard it said ‘It’s a mad world’. Indeed, it is a mad world and in many ways connections to money andreligion have been the causes.
Both were invented by the hidden powers that be about 5,000 years ago in the first ever known cities such as Babylon, Mesopotamia and Nineveh in ancient Sumer. Basically, the invention of the monetary system has enslaved humanity on the physical level, while religion has enslaved on the spiritual level stultifying genuine spiritual growth. Many people are totally unaware of this, that they have been stitched up and how over the years the inventors the ruling elite have used both money and religion purely for power, financial and political gains.
I will be covering religion extensively in other messages (apologies for putting this subject on hold in the way I have). This message is a brief expose on the money scam and how it is symbolised in the Western world using the American dollar bill as an example, giving rise to how the hidden powers that be work behind the scenes and what you can do after you’ve got the realization that you’re being played.
What is money?
-Answer: Money is a means by which energy is exchanged. The economic system is based on work energy exchanges from person to person during the supply and demand.
Let me give some simple examples. I am a musician and let’s say I have received payment for playing a live musical performance. This payment represents the energy I had to put in to make that performance happen.
Let’s say I then give money earned from this performance to a mechanic. The money or payment the mechanic receives is for the energy he had to put in to repair my car. Then, the mechanic gives this money earned to someone else for their work energy related services to him… and so on.
-In short, throughout the working world money goes where the energy flows in the exchanging, but here’s the rub.
In the above examples let’s say in every case the money paid out was fair and fitting to the amount of energy each person had put in for their services. However, in the world of work this is definitely not the case. There is a great imbalance:
Most people (like yourself?) in order to earn their pay check will have to put in far more than they’ll ever receive. That is, instead of receiving a balanced payment for their efforts most of the money made will go to their corporation. The fact that giant corporations make huge pre-tax profits each year and can get away with paying some of its workforce minimum wages tells you there is a huge imbalance. –This imbalance, unfair returns on people’s daily work energy contributions occurs on a global scale. It has been orchestrated by the hidden powers that be and it doesn’t end there.
The Biggest Scam In The History Of Mankind – Who Owns The Federal Reserve? Hidden Secrets of Money
There’s a whole list of other bloodsucking systems including many unfair taxations, banking and financial scams… (video) designed to siphon off the people’s hard earned cash to just a few very wealthy individuals: The ruling elite have deceptively manipulated the world financial system to such an extent that they control more money than the entire world’s governments stuck together. This means that they have usurped the energies from we-the-people to such an extent that we have become physically and mentally enslaved.
Now back to the dollar bill
As I have said in previous blogs the hidden powers that be or ruling elite are heavily into the occult. As seen printed on the back of a dollar bill (page1) the pyramid and all-seeing-eye embodies the secret occult organisations that continue to control America. Since this symbolism is frequently used in numerous corporate logos it may also serve as a statement by the ruling elite that they control the world through business and banking.
Since the creation of the 1 dollar bill it has apparently been understood that number 13 indicates the colonial states with a Christian nation social order representing freedom, equality and peace… but actually the symbolism represents the opposite, something quite unchristian and sinister in its secrecy.
The 13 not only represents the number of families making up the ruling elite but it is also rooted in satanic occultism. It was a mystical number to the Babylonians and Egyptians. Today, it is a mystical number to the Masons. Each item count of 13 given on page 1 represents in occult terms the plans for a one world government takeover New World Order (NWO) where we will be living in a global fascist dictatorship like that in George Orwell’s fiction novel 1984. So, in more detail:
13 bars & stripes – Represents opposing God and the churches of Christ.
13 arrows in the right claw of eagle -Represents war and military power.
13 letters in: ‘E Pluribus Unum’ – ‘Out of Many’ is the plan to bring together all the world’s governments, religions and money systems into one for control in the NWO. Incidentally, the planned new religion is Satanism.
13 stars in the green crest above the eagle -Stars arranged in a hexagram known as ‘mogen David’ used in occult practice to evoke Satan.
13 stones or steps in the pyramid -the number of satanic families controlling the planet.
13 letters in ’Annuit Coeptis’ -’Announcing the beginning or arrival’ (of the NWO).
13 leaves in the olive branches -Symbolises peace (oh really?!)
In the bill, the all-seeing eye is that of Lucifer (Satan). Notice how it is surrounded with light. This represents the illumination and those in the satanic occult practices are the ‘illuminated ones’ because they have the secret knowledge and understand the hidden meanings. So called the all-seeing eye because it knows and sees everything, just the kind of thing you’d expect in a big brother is watching you global fascist dictatorship…
