Remember all those 5G towers that went up during the first lockdown at the beginning of 2020? Welcome to the ‘metaverse’: a strange new world where the same billionaire globalist elites who destroyed the lives of millions using the pandemic as their main battering ram, will now entice the masses into a fake utopia, created by AI and computer algorithms. Similar to the ‘holodeck’ from Star Trek, this digital world will become less and less distinct from reality as it continues to develop and increase in complexity. Eventually, with 6G and beyond, you will not be able to tell reality from fiction in the metaverse.
With the metaverse at your fingertips, you can literally own nothing and be happy in your fantasy world. The lines between your physical and online identity will become forever blurred. Right now, humanity is clearly at a choice point. Will you choose to exist in the magic of the expanding physical universe or will you choose the trappings of a fake reality in the metaverse? The metaverse is currently being shown to us with clunky old VR sets, however, recent advancements in the internet of things are transforming the human body itself into a new technology platform. The plan is for our physical bodies to be nodes in this automated and programmable cyber-physical convergence (referred to by the National Science Foundation and the National Nanotechnology Initiative, in 2017, as Nano-Bio-Info-Cognitive Convergence, or NBIC), littered with stealth “smart contracts” and pervasive “smart environments.” Have you given your consent to this engineered consummation?
As we exit the pandemic, we are starting to hear much more about The Great Reset and the elite’s slogan to ‘build back better’. However, far from resulting in a low-carbon dream life, what is appearing is a garish, cartoonish fantasy that will hand the global elite even more power. The Great Reset refers to a plan to rebuild the world’s infrastructure ‘in a sustainable way’ following the economic ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic and to establish a global treaty to prevent future pandemics, or as it is described more formally, to “build a more robust international health architecture that will protect future generations.” If you ever hear anyone talking about “building back better,” they are referring to The Great Reset.
“The cost of storing information is approaching zero (storing 1GB costs an average of less than $0.03 a year today, compared to more than $10,000 20 years ago).”
The Internet of Things
The most disturbing part of The Great Reset is how much it strongly resembles business-as-usual, only with fewer freedoms and EXTRA globalism. Most of the plan seems to include a further weakening of national boundaries and individual national autonomy, in favour of more ‘universal governance’ and totalitarian dictates. Everyone’s favourite supervillain, Darth Schwab, says the aim of The Great Reset is “the Fourth Industrial Revolution,” with the first being powered by water and steam, the second introducing mass production, and the third electronic automation. The fourth will blur the lines between “physical, digital and biological spheres.”
In this grab-bag of technical advances, he lists, “fields such as artificial intelligence, robotics, the Internet of Things, autonomous vehicles, 3-D printing, nanotechnology, biotechnology, materials science, energy storage and quantum computing.” This sounds like futuristic optimism, because many of these technologies are anything but clean. On top of that, fewer than 9% of companies use machine learning, robotics, touch screens and other advanced technologies listed as somehow ‘changing everything.’ Stakeholder capitalism, as a concept, does not explain itself as foolproof, and will no doubt be freely interpreted by the likes of Silicon Valley or supply chain conglomerates.
As stated by the Spatial Web masterminds, the ultimate goal is to seamlessly (and permanently) integrate the physical, digital, and biological domains together into one universal digital infrastructure. This new “living network” is one where the “Web becomes the World.” They seem ardently content with the depiction of this vision as a “mirrorworld,” invoking the pre-eminent conjurer of mirror worlds, Yale University computer engineer (and a leader, yet dissenting voice, in Artificial Intelligence) David Gelernter, author of the 1993 book, Mirror Worlds: Or: The Day Software Puts the Universe in a Shoebox – How It Will Happen & What It Will Mean.
“Machinic desire can seem a little inhuman, as it rips up political cultures, deletes traditions, dissolves subjectivities, and hacks through security apparatuses, tracking a soulless tropism to zero control. This is because what appears to humanity as the history of capitalism is an invasion from the future by an artificial intelligent space that must assemble itself entirely from its enemy’s resources.”
AI Prophets - Integrating Religion With Technology
The jewel in the crown of Great Reset optimism has to be the belief that the advent of AI will alter everything positively (again without specifics) to somehow create a low-carbon new world. It appears at best to be all be smoke and mirrors, a childish corporate fantasy manufactured by isolated bean counters. At worst, it is an intentional power-grab by unaccountable international agencies and hidden oligarchs with nefarious motives. Either way, they are pushing ahead with a fake utopia at the price of privacy and autonomy. Plans for “6G Humanity” (and beyond) are already in the pipeline, with infrastructure being arranged behind the scenes. “Sentient World Simulation” (SWS), ties directly to the Spatial Web, or Web 3.0. As noted by Gabriel René in his October 2019 Medium article, “An Introduction to the Spatial Web”: “In Web 3.0, we will not only create a ‘Digital Twin’ or soft copy of our world and everything in it, but a Smart Twin of everything, with its own unique ID, interaction rules, and verifiable history capable of being linked and synced to its physical counterpart, spatially.”
These digital infrastructure enthusiasts, who seem somewhat deranged as they describe an augmented reality universe, regularly reference Ernest Cline’s book, Ready Player One. For those who haven’t seen it, view the movie trailer here. For context, here is an oversimplified summation: the story depicts a world where living in a virtual reality game, called the OASIS (Ontologically Anthropocentric Sensory Immersive Simulation), is presumably better than real life. The media are touting artificial intelligence is changing how we interact with everything, from food to healthcare, travel, and also religion. We can already see the ‘love and light’ message being used as a trojan horse to get us to accept a new one-world religion based on Transhumanism.
If you are confused and think transhumanism is the next stage in human evolution, we have news for you. Just like Internet of Things (IoT), the Internet of Bodies (IoB) refers to access and control of the human body via the internet. The rise of collecting data from the human body is accelerating, with the Internet of Bodies (IoB) transforming health care and jeopardising our most intimate personal information. With the Internet of Bodies, mental health data is fed into your “life locker” for AI monitoring – layered with gamified skills and badge attainment for improved futures market predictive profiling. Welcome to the wonders of blockchain! Privacy and security risks are inherently ethical issues for the individuals whose data is compromised. However, the IoB raises further ethical concerns, including inequity and threats to personal autonomy – and you thought you had already lost most of your freedoms! (cue evil overlord laugh)
Incidentally, the author (and screenplay co-writer) of Ready Player One, Ernest Cline, is married to fellow writer, Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz, whose brother, Kevin Aptowicz, Ph.D. is a physicist working in the research domains of hydrogels and light scattering of respiratory aerosols. Dr. Aptowicz has collaborated in NASA-funded research with renowned physicist Arjun G. Yodh, Ph.D., who served for 11-years as Director of the Laboratory for Research on the Structure of Matter (LRSM) at the University of Pennsylvania until 2020. Dr. Yodh holds multiple biotechnology patents, including carbon nanotubes as applied to oxygen and blood flow in the human body. It’s a very small world – particularly in the sector of nanotechnology. Cristin’s sister, Caitlin Aptowicz Trasande was involved in building the digital biotechnology future, serving in a management role at Nature Publishing Group, then as Head of Research at Digital Science. She is now positioned as Scientific Director of the Computational and Systems Biology Program at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
“Maybe the only significant difference between a really smart simulation and a human being was the noise they made when you punched them.”
The Mindscope Program
“A future where the boundary between carbon-evolved and silicon-designed life becomes ever more porous is approaching at warp speed. Supervised and unsupervised deep machine learning allows computers to listen and answer appropriately. Computers and their siren voices, linguistic skills, knowledge and social graces will become indistinguishable from those of high-functioning humans — flawless, creative and ubiquitous in homes, industry, entertainment and, inevitably, warcraft.”
“Tech’s demiurges will fashion digital creatures, first virtual but eventually with humanoid, quadruped, insectoid or avian bodies. Assuming no planetary nightfall, these trends, accelerated by the pace of progress in machine learning, databases and hardware (e.g., quantum computers, bipedal robots), are all but irreversible and will profoundly affect humanity’s future, including whether we have any.” …Sounds like the stuff of nightmares!
The Metaverse will not be created by one company. It will be built by creators and developers from all over the world, effectively making it a holographic dark web powered by a digital economy. Instead of physical things being assembled in factories, they’ll be holograms in a fake reality unconstrained by today’s platforms and policies. The focus on Facebook’s VR “Meta” verse is simply a distraction for the masses to divert attention away from the AR blockchain smart contract spatial web, which is much more of an immediate threat to our humanity. Unfortunately, increasing demand for ESG impact verification data has the nefarious hidden agenda to drive the adoption of sensor-based infrastructure. Whenever you see non-profits, academics, and policy people bandying about terms like “equity” and “sustainability.” What they really mean is digital surveillance. Digital ID, blockchain, micro-grids, human piezoelectric energy harvest and IoBNT smart materials – combined with coercive social impact, health behavior pathways and energy futures trading – it is completely devoid of humanity and out of alignment with Nature.
“Artificial Intelligence is another term for the Archontic hive mind. It is a binary operating system that imitates the many shades of grey, characteristic of human intelligence – only to end up a circumscribed parody of it that processes everything strictly in terms of black and white.”
Choose Your Reality
In May 2017 the Economist ran the headline, “The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data”. We know that the major players in the digital world trade in data harvested from their users. Now they have an opportunity to literally get inside our heads – is this a commodity we really want to trade commercially? Elon Musk has argued that AI “is the single biggest existential crisis that we face”. Perhaps a more imminent danger we are facing is a break down of the last wall of privacy many of us have, our innermost thoughts inside our own brains. George Orwell said, “Reality exists in the human mind, and nowhere else.” We must be very careful about who we allow to access this core part of ourselves.
The foundation of human control is to isolate and restrict human perception into the five senses so that the world we see, touch, taste (or think we do) is the only one that is influencing perception. Here’s the thing: we are multidimensional beings. If we are accessing other expanded levels of consciousness, then we get to perceive through another filter – another way of looking at the world – so we come to different conclusions. Expanded levels of consciousness see the unity of everything – the ONEness of everything – how everything is connected. The five senses, by their very nature, are decoding the world as separate, so the five senses perceive empty space between everything. Because of our limited perception, this creates infinite potential for ‘divide and rule’ by limiting people in their sense of identity.
“We must not confuse performance on a dataset with the acquisition of an underlying ability.”
The Transhumanist Agenda
What is being inflicted upon the human race is mass trauma. Fear is the the weapon of choice. If there are only a handful who want to control billions, then they must control our perceptions because from perceptions comes behaviour. People have responded to the COVID era because of their perceptions. People with an expanded perception have looked at the narrative and said “no way!” whereas those who are stuck in five-sense perception, have just following along and done as they are told. Our focus of attention has become so manipulated in to the myopia of the five senses that we perceive ourselves to be ‘Dave driving the Uber’ or ‘Sal on the checkout at the supermarket’ when that is actually just an experience that our consciousness is briefly having. What we really are is infinite awareness having that experience. We have the ability in this lifetime to realise our own power to dictate reality and not have it dictated for us by ugly old evil dudes in terrible clothing.
While this very small and very sick cabal leads the way, their army of foot soldiers trudge along behind, gazing into their mobile phones and wide screen TV’s, awaiting the next instructions: their designer-slave minds already given over to the slow march into spiritual oblivion; their bodies bent with denial; their souls’ vital transmissions suffocated under a heavy blanket of mind-controlled and poisoned thinking, whose chief ingredient is fear. Those of us with eyes to see know the plan and we know of humanity’s retrograde passivity which has been responsible for allowing this plan to get as far as it has this far.
Transhumanists hold that the human condition of ignorance, loneliness, sadness, disease, old age, and even death can be transcended through improved gadgetry. Many believe tribalism will also be eliminated – perhaps through neural lace or some other brain implant. Here’s the thing: this elite clique tends to be so convicted that legacy humans will have no say in the matter. Unfortunately, their radical ideas are hardly marginal. Transhuman ‘values’ have been implicitly embraced by the world’s wealthiest technocrats. Consider pretend philanthropist, Bill Gates pushing universal jabs, Jeff Bezos’s quest for “life extension,” Elon Musk’s proposed brain implants, Mark Zuckerberg’s forays into the Metaverse, and Eric Schmidt’s plans for an American technocracy racing against China. Of course, these are all just front-men for the same insidious trap – a nefarious plan for power and control at the cost of our very humanity.
To suggest that these are just speculations of marginalised wingnuts is completely ludicrous. This agenda is front-and-centre, being pushed by the World Economic Forum and thought leaders in major industries. Ray Kurzweil, for instance, is Director of Engineering at Google and co-founder of Singularity University. Kurzweil does not “need” a job, but took the position at Google – to further his Transhuman dreams. Transhumanism is a futuristic religion that exalts technology as the highest power. Transhumanists’ goal is to merge man with machine. Their wildest prophecies seem ridiculous at first, until you consider the dizzying advances in bionics, robotics, neuroprosthetics, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, and genetic engineering.
“A thought has no boundaries. A hundred kilometers or a hundred billion, five minutes or five million years. With a thought, you can instantly be anywhere and any time.”
Nature is The Way
The vindictive plan to attack and distort our DNA – the very building blocks of life itself – is the most despicable to date. The WEF has declared open war on Earth as well as humanity. We know that such brutal attacks on this living planet and its occupants stem from a grossly distorted perception of what Life is all about – a reversal, in fact. In order to splice our consciousness into the codes of their spirit-less digital mechanistic void, they have created the ‘ex-human’ robotic designer-slave – that has all its faculties genetically engineered to the synthetic point of no return. No return to nature. No way home. This is the Hell you have heard about in biblical stories of old. Becoming trapped in a synthetic metaverse is NOT the way. Love is the way. Nature is the way.
The rising tide of awakening humanity has recognised the deception and is now establishing a formidable resistance. We, humanity, are discovering our inner powers and wherewithal to directly challenge the architects of destruction. We are beginning to understand how times of profound darkness can be precursors of times of searing illumination. A great metamorphosis of life on Earth is in the air! A manifestation that will bring with it that which we nurture in our hearts and envision in our minds. We are the guardians of the flag of truth, and leaders of a new society built on love, honour, wisdom, truth and justice for all of Life.
“Faking it is never sustainable.”
We Need Real Leadership
These are end-times. This is the line in the sand. We find ourselves in a battle royale, and make no mistake: the road to peace is not secured by passivity and wishful thinking. It is now clear to many leaders, managers, and change agents that we need a new way of operating. The world needs real leadership. Leaders who are courageous, authentic, conscious, and regenerative to step up, stand up for their people and be the change. In the past many have sought solutions ‘out there’. New ways that have been invented elsewhere, packed-up, tried-and-tested, and ready to buy off-the-shelf so we can solve our problems. We have gone for the silver-bullet, the cook-book approach that, with enough budget, senior management buy-in and will-power, we could implement for a job done. Tick, move-on, next!
The time for half-assed band-aid fixes is over. Things are only set to get more volatile, more uncertain, and more ambiguous as the war for our consciousness heats up. Our search for neat off-the-shelf solutions may satisfy the immediate desire to get the job done and move on, but in our hearts, we know something deeper is now required. Life and our humanity depends on it. What is now clear to those of us at the leading edge of leadership and organisational development is that a shift in consciousness in terms of how we lead, organise and operate is essential if we are to enable our organisations to flourish amid increasing complexity, shifting stakeholder demands and wicked systemic challenges… oh yes, and global tyranny. We must not forget that there is a transhuman agenda and an all-out war for human consciousness. In a war for consciousness, we can only win with a shift in our own level of consciousness.
“Authentic leadership is a whole body experience. Our bodies have a lot more to teach us about ourselves than our thoughts.”
This consciousness shift is not just a shift in perspective from seeing the organisation-as-a-machine (locked-up in separateness, control and linearity) to seeing the organisation-as-a-living-system (flourishing through the living-systems dynamics of emergence, interconnectedness and synchronicity). It is also a shift in how we attend to life; a shift in our own inner-outer dynamic within ourselves and within our relationships and wider social systems. This is a change in the ‘centre-of-gravity’ within ourselves and in our connections with others; a readjustment of our ego-soul dynamic – finding our true nature by tuning-in and letting it flow. It’s a shift from a prevalent focus on the outer, metaverse enabled doing – the goal orientated achievement to grasp at something out there driven by a mechanistic, linear cause-and-effect perspective.
Polished brands, quarterly numbers, cascaded KPIs, data upon data upon data, goal-orientated agenda-driven meeting protocols, explicit measurable learning objectives, performance-driven metrics, are all part-and-parcel of this mind-set. And there is nothing wrong with it per se. It has a useful place and serves a purpose. The problem comes when this mechanistic mindset dominates our modus operandi; then we wind up overly emphasising the ‘outer’ at the expense of the ‘inner’, the implicit, the unconscious, the liminal and intangible thresholds beyond the known; then our systems of learning and development prioritise the very logic that created our problems in the first place and we end up with abominations like a fake reality in a digital metaverse. Trying to fix our sea of challenges with the same consciousness that created our problems is not what future-fit regenerative leadership is all about. In fact, Phoenix Leadership is a radical departure from how we have thought, felt and done things, and it’s not for the faint-hearted who would rather the seeming security and superficiality of the status quo.
“The most courageous act is still to think for yourself. Aloud.”
As 21st-century leaders, we face the dual challenge of:
- A prevalent mechanistic mind-set in business and beyond;
- A system-field of increasing volatility and wicked inter-related problems.
This is why we need to shift this inner-outer dynamic, first within ourselves and then through our relationships, conversations, and meeting conventions. Then we naturally also shift beyond our organisations into the interconnected ecosystems in our communities and the world. We do this so that ‘space’ is brought in and not left out. When we do this we bring in a more balanced, more holistic, more human attentiveness. This is the level of consciousness – the intention and attention now called for to change our world.
It requires courage to depart from the prevalent thinking of the day and the restless pressure for the concrete cause-and-effect, neatly definable, packaged up metrics, models and methods. We invite you to catalyse the necessary regeneration to not just catch up, but to lead the world into the 21st century. The ‘new normal’ of business is unceasing transformation, hand-in-hand with increasing stakeholder complexity. Simply put, business-as-usual is no longer an option. In fact, business-as-usual is very much a part of the problem!
“If you have influence with at least one person, that makes you a leader. An organisation is any time two or more people are in a relationship. So, everyone is a leader in some organisation or sphere in which they live, work, and play.”
Most of our leaders today have no clue how to address the complexities we are now facing. Most leaders are educated with a logic that may served them well in the previous century, but it is not geared to address today’s challenges so our people, businesses and ecosystems can thrive into the future. Unceasing transformation is the new-normal and it demands a new way of leading that is fundamentally different from what we are used to. There are so many amazing minds and creative problem solvers on this planet, and humanity has the numbers! We will not give away our power or our very humanity to a group of insane billionaires. It’s time to illuminate a pathway to transcend our broken national and global politics and get to the urgent work at hand.
Ignite the Flame is an online introduction to regenerative conscious leadership. The world needs leaders we can trust in every industry, from all walks of life. Where you stand right now matters. It’s time to step up TODAY and guide the people around you to build new and better systems for the future of humanity. We believe with every cell of our being that Nature is the way. All else is fake and artificial, restrictive and easily manipulated. The paradigm shift now upon us must be radical – philosophically, scientifically and culturally. The system is broken. Therefore, it needs to go to the very root of our corrupt engagement with reality: space-matter, content-context, human-nature, self-Self. Are you ready to Ignite the Flame and shift your way of being, knowing and thinking?
