During the last few weeks I have been confronted with several troubling images of caged and chained animals, some in circuses, which affected me deeply.
It made me wonder whether my feelings of sadness, anger, and empathy would have been similarly aroused if I had seen a computer tethered to a desk, or a rock chained to another rock.
Of course not.
It reminded me deeply of one of the Dalai Lama’s suggestions for meditation — that within stillness one try to sense the interconnectedness of all sentient beings.
On a scientific level we usually attribute sentience to the presence of a brain and nervous system; it is interesting to consider that at the smallest molecular levels some viruses are alive sometimes, and inanimate substances at other times. (Sometimes this is a matter of whether they are in a host organism.)
In any case there is something in us that seems to know or believe we know when something is animate or inanimate — alive or not alive.
This sense seems related not to that we feel but indeed how we feel — to the aspect of sensation that biologists and psychologists sometimes refer to as “qualia” — the quality of a feeling that something within us knows.
For example, we can read many articles about wine but the actual taste of a sip of wine leaves us with an ineffable taste that we can sense but for which all additional verbal description is inadequate.
Similarly we simply know that an animal that is caged or chained is suffering because of empathy — we put ourselves in that being’s position and know that for us it would horrible and intolerable.
In his book I Am a Strange Loop, neuroscientist Douglas R. Hofstadter proposes that there is a depth of sensation and thought that is essentially bottomless (an endless loop of “knowing” or information) that results in our feeling and noticing an emotion–and thereby knowing or sensing that “something” is alive.
To be sure, we can be fooled. The Turing test for artificial intelligence is based on the premise that at some point an inanimate something can convince us it’s human through our verbal interaction with it.
So if we take this inquiry a bit further we know that such an “artificially” intelligent machine is powered by software that was presumably intentionally and intelligently programmed.
And as we’ve noted previously, our DNA operates as software — we can now edit and reprogram it to make biochemical changes in ourselves or even create other organisms.
But DNA is presumably the product of natural evolution. While we can now synthesize it (artificially) in the “natural” world it has preceded us by billions of years.
Biochemically DNA also interacts with the other substances and hormones in our bodies to apparently result in or produce our feelings like empathy, sadness, and anger — we know that in some instances these can be measured by biochemical monitoring.
But again we do not know the HOW. How do these biochemical combinations produce qualia — or the feeling or taste of anything? What is noticing or evaluating these sensations and then labeling them; or better yet what notices even before a label is applied?
Going deeper, it would seem that it is precisely the ability to sense and evaluate a sensation or feeling that makes something alive, animate, or conscious.
It is the presence of a quality (not a thing) that allows us from our “inside” to know that we’re here, that we feel, and of course that we exist.
And it is the sense that the caged or chained animal also feels its existence and knows its predicament, and in fact has been horribly deprived of necessary qualia-like affection, that gives rise to our empathy, however it may express biochemically.
This is clearly a pointer to Consciousness — the discernment between what is natural and what is inanimate or artificial — and the sensing of that unique energetic quality within ourselves.
But all software that we know of through computers is inanimate. It expresses human intelligence (encoded) but it is not a natural occurrence. Humans created it.
So to this point ALL software that we have encountered has been “artificial” — created through programming code and having it express through inanimate silicon.
DNA, however is an anomaly. We understand it as software but it is apparently a completely organic, natural entity.
We might go a step further and claim that software is also a natural substance, since it is the product of natural beings (humans), but that would be insincere if we return to the caged animal — because we do innately know the difference (or generally do) between what is alive and what is inanimate. And we are alive – software is not.
We also know that software is the product of (human) intelligence; without human intelligence it would not exist. We call it intellectual property and protect it with patents and copyrights.
And we now allow companies to patent genetic configurations similarly as intellectual property.
So the question needs to be profoundly addressed: is the natural world in and of itself capable of intelligent evolution to the level of DNA?
Is intelligence the default in nature, and then are we just another expression of that reality?
(Or is DNA the product of another nonhuman intelligence — which simply begs the question of how did any life actually arise?)
For our current science, and sadly for our civilization, this is currently the most “inconvenient truth”: Any scientific answer is elusive without addressing the issue of consciousness (which is precisely that aspect of reality in which recognition of one’s existence arises).
We simply cannot account for the existence of DNA as a software program without greatly broadening our entire notion of reality. As an intellectual product how could it have evolved in a dead or non-sentient universe? Only a living intelligence could have given rise to DNA.
But staying completely open to either not knowing the answer, or the answer being beyond our ever knowing, can lead to a deeper sense of allowing the natural flow of life to be as it is.
Once we are able to grasp that life itself must be ineffably intelligent to have evolved DNA, our entire relationship to LIFE must change; so that instead of believing we can control life and nature from a position of superiority, we must assume our rightful place within the vast infinite Intelligence of the natural order.
Alien Hunter Reveals Alleged UFO At Area 51 On Google Earth
- The Facts:
A man by the name of Scott Waring created a video showing an alleged UFO at an area called S4 at Area 51. He used Google Earth to disclose the UFO. Area 51 is now fully acknowledged as a secret base by the US government.
- Reflect On:
What are the true implications of the reality of UFOs and extraterrestrials? Most leave this topic as a fun mystery, but truly think of how this changes the consciousness and worldview of people all around the world.
Back in the late 80’s Bob Lazar hit the mainstream news via an interview with journalist George Knapp. In the interview, he claimed to have worked on reverse engineering extraterrestrial technology at a site called S-4, near the Area 51 facility. Lazar also mentioned information regarding extraterrestrials and the fact that there are multiple groups of them, some of which have been in contact with several global governments.
Now, a man who claims to be have worked in the US Air Force shows a UFO via Google Earth. At first read, you might think this is hoaky, but looking more closely at his video below and what he actually reveals brings a lot more intrigue to this story.
YouTuber, ET Data Base, claims to have found an unidentified flying object near Area 51 in a region called S4 using the world’s greatest surveillance service – Google Earth. The YouTuber’s real name is Scott Waring and in the video he claims to have worked in the Air Force and had worked on B1 bombers. He did everything from paint to climb on top of them he claims. I was unable to verify these claims thus far, but his video below is interesting nonetheless as it doesn’t require that his background in the military is necessary.
Waring begins by locating Groom Lake on Google Earth. He then moves the map across the landscape to a smaller base (under the Area 51 umbrella) inside a massive circle. There he begins discussing what he feels is a massive UFO. Watch the video below to see exactly what Waring uncovered.
Regardless of what you feel about this particular video, it isn’t necessarily what I would call the strongest evidence to support the case of a massive and concerted UFO coverup that has been going on since the 60’s in the West. While other nations more widely discuss and admit the existence of UFOs and Aliens, the West has been sure to maintain a culture of disbelief, even if it goes against common sense and evidence.
We’ve covered the UFO subject in such deep detail over the last 10 years that a look through our archives can reveal much truth that is well documented.
Area 51 Used To Be A Conspiracy Theory
Like anything in our world that is laughed at before it is proven true, Area 51 used to be a mocked conspiracy theory. Those who allow government rhetoric and stuck belief systems to limit their view of reality long laughed off Area 51 as something that simply wasn’t to be taken seriously. That was until 2013 when the US government officially recognized the base following a freedom of information request. The FOIA request revealed they had once classified documents referring to the 8,000-sq m (20,700-sq km) installation by name and locating it on a map near Groom Lake.
This isn’t the only location as such, the reality of deep underground military bases has been thoroughly investigated and revealed.
Although common sense, research and credible whistleblowers had already blown this truth wide open, getting government admission is what some require to begin seeing the truth. An important step in breaking the illusion of our programmed reality such that we can understand what’s really going on in our world.
Since Bob Lazar: Area 51 and Flying Saucers went on Netflix, even characters like Joe Rogan have completely changed their mind about the subject. This is great news as Rogan used to be one that mocked the subject as having no evidence, a claim many who simply have not done the research will state.
I have stated many times that there is this feeling deep within us at this time, and I know you feel it, where we are beginning to deeply question our ways. How we treat one another, our political systems, the elite manipulation and control that exists, the existential reality of who we are and how we are truly just consciousness, is all connected. These deep questions are asking us to explore who we truly are and why we are truly here. And many of us are doing so. This is beginning to create instability and change in our system because the consciousness that holds up our old world is beginning to crack, and a new one is emerging.
The biggest secret behind why ET and UFO disclosure has been suppressed is something that isn’t discussed all that much – it’s the suppression of consciousness.
When you can avoid the shifting of a societies consciousness you can continue to maintain rigid systems that keep them enslaved. The ET and UFO discussion causes one to expand their mind so deeply that their view of reality evolves and expands deeply. This is a scary reality for those in power, but an inevitable awakening humanity is currently experiencing.
RFK Jr. Slams Gov’t & Big Pharma In Eye Opening Speech About Forced Vaccinations
- The Facts:
A recent speech given by Robert F Kennedy Junior highlights how vaccine bill SB267 represents medial tyranny.
- Reflect On:
Why does the mainstream continue to use headlines "anti-vaccine" and use ridicule instead of addressing and countering the points made by vaccine safety advocates.
California has very strict compulsory vaccination laws for children in school, and as a result more parents are deciding to homeschool their children. The latest information regarding vaccines in California that’s making noise is Senate Bill 276 by Senator Richard Pan. The bill eliminated nearly all vaccine medical exemptions. Under this bill, politicians, not physicians, are in charge of deciding whether or not children may receive medical exemptions, which in turn would determine whether or not they can attend school.
This bill, which was recently signed into law, represents medical tyranny that is similar to a police state. Forcing vaccinations on any segment of the population and taking away their freedom of choice is ridiculous. All of this is done under the assumption that unvaccinated children pose a danger to vaccinated children, and this is simply not true for several reasons.
Herd immunity is a largely theoretical concept, yet for decades, it has furnished one of the key underpinnings for vaccine mandates in the United States. The public health establishment borrowed the herd immunity concept from pre-vaccine observations of natural disease outbreaks. Then, without any apparent supporting science, officials applied the concept to vaccination, using it not only to justify mass vaccination but to guilt-trip anyone objecting to the nation’s increasingly onerous vaccine mandates.
In a 2014 analysis in the Oregon Law Review by New York University (NYU) legal scholars Mary Holland and Chase E. Zachary (who also has a Princeton-conferred doctorate in chemistry), the authors show that 60 years of compulsory vaccine policies “have not attained herd immunity for any childhood disease.” It is time, they suggest, to cast aside coercion in favor of voluntary choice.
This is true, in fact, there has been a history of disease outbreaks in heavily vaccinated populations. I wrote an article not long ago providing multiple studies showing this, and the studies are elaborated on and linked in that article, which you can go through here.
According to a MedAlerts search of the FDA Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) database as of 2/5/19, the cumulative raw count of adverse events from measles, mumps, and rubella vaccines alone was: 93,929 adverse events, 1,810 disabilities, 6,902 hospitalizations, and 463 deaths. What is even more disturbing about these numbers is that VAERS is a voluntary and passive reporting system that has been found to only capture 1% of adverse events.
How can vaccines produce herd immunity if they’re not safe for everybody? It’s impossible.
The various forms of vaccine failure not only make herd immunity impossible to achieve, but also feed the occurrence of “vaccine-preventable illnesses” in highly or even fully vaccinated populations. There are numerous examples of this in published literature, again, some of which I link and go into greater detail about measles here.
Vaccines Aren’t Safe For Everyone
It’s no secret that vaccines are not completely safe for everyone, it’s clearly not a ‘one size fits all’ product, and that’s evident by the fact that nearly $4 billion has been paid out to families of vaccine injured children via the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Act (NCVIA). As astronomical as the monetary awards are, they’re even more alarming when you consider that only an estimated 1% of vaccine injuries are even reported to the Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS). If the numbers from VAERS are correct – only 1% of vaccine injuries are reported and only 1/3 of the petitions are compensated – then up to 99% of vaccine injuries go unreported and the families of the vast majority of people injured by vaccines are picking up the costs, once again, for vaccine makers’ flawed products.
This completely debunks the validity of herd immunity.
Speech From Kennedy
While California’s tragic fall into what might rightly be described as a Medical Police State has many up in arms, RFK Jr. spontaneously delivered a speech outside Gov. Newsom’s office, helping to transform the anger and grief experienced by thousands of shaken onlookers into inspiration and hope, no doubt catalyzing further what is clearly becoming this country’s next grassroots civil rights movement.
In the astoundingly powerful and uplifting speech by RFK Jr. below, one senses the historical importance of what just transpired. And that the fall of California into medical fascism also marks the beginning of a new, broad-based civil rights movement, including all sexes, races, walks of life, religions, and socioeconomic classes — as it concerns the primary, inviolable human right of bodily self-sovereignty and health freedom, and a parent’s right to make informed health choices for their children, which can have life and death consequences.

Another Informative Statement From Kennedy
Via Robert F. Kennedy Jr.
Merck introduced its measles vaccine in 1963, claiming the vaccine would convey lifelong immunity equivalent to a natural infection, with health officials promising that 55% vaccine coverage would produce “herd immunity” sufficient to eradicate measles by 1967.
Leading scientists of the day, including the world’s preeminent bacteriologist, Sir Graham Wilsonand Harvard Virologist John Enders, who first isolated measles, warned against introducing a vaccine unless it provided lifelong immunity. Measles, they cautioned, would rebound with increased virulence and mortality as the vaccine forced the evolution of more virulent strains and shifted outbreaks away from children—biologically evolved to handle measles—to the elderly who could die from pneumonia, and young infants now unequipped with maternal immunity.
A 1984 Johns Hopkins University modeling study predicted that Merck’s population-wide experiment would increase measles outbreaks by 2050, (when the last generation subject to natural immunity died off,) compared to the pre-vaccine era. This is exactly what has happened. Merck’s vaccine, with a growing failure rate has been incapable of abolishing the disease. Vaccine failure has left millions of adult Californians effectively unvaccinated. And 79% of people affected by measles in this year’s California outbreak were adults.
When eradication predictably didn’t materialize and measles attacked fully-vaccinated populations, Merck simply moved the goalpost saying that herd immunity required 75% vaccination, then 85%, then 95%, then 98%. And now 99%. To distract the world’s citizens from its failed vaccine, Merck started blaming “anti-vaxxers.” (The Vaccine Safety Movement)
California’s bought or brain-dead lawmakers are proposing to “fix” Merck’s vaccine failure problem by punishing 4,000 vulnerable children with medical exemptions. In an act of legislative savagery, Democratic politicians propose to forcibly vaccinate children whose doctors have told them that a vaccine could kill or severely injure them. SB276 will not fix the measles outbreak or solve the problem of vaccine failure, it will only reward a corrupt company for a defective product.
The idea that politicians can force children to be vaccinated, including those deemed to be in danger of severe adverse reactions, and strip them of their rights to attend public school is insane. Freedom of choice and medical freedom should always exist, especially with regards to vaccines. If parents want to vaccinate, fine, but parents who wish to not vaccinate their children for whatever reasons should always have the freedom to do so.
Mandatory vaccination is tyrannical.
“The fight for liberty and health freedom in California is far from over. There will be legal challenges,” said RFK. Jr., “all the way up to the Supreme Court if necessary. In fact, this incident brings to the forefront a deep, dark problem in the United States that has been festering for decades: the rise of the Pharmaceutical industry’s influence on the government to mandate products that the free market would otherwise reject, due to the profound liability these products have now underwritten completely by the government via their indemnification through the National Childhood Vaccine Injury Compensation Act (NCVIA) of 1986. Now, over three decades since the inception of NVICA, that same industry is starting to use the police powers of the state to enforce these mandates.” [Taken from the Youtube description in the video posted above]
Trump Furious As New Brett Kavanaugh Sexual Assault Allegation Emerges
- The Facts:
Trump angrily Tweets, calling our the "Radical Left" as new allegations of sexual misconduct on the part of Justice Kavanaugh emerge.
- Reflect On:
How are we to move forward as so many politically driven claims come forth like this? Are they true? Are they a ploy? Can we truly ever tell? Are we seeing more political battles or a wake-up call about the misconduct of people?
President Donald Trump has come out suggesting Brett Kavanaugh should sue for “libel” after a fresh sexual assault allegation has emerged against the Supreme Court justice in the New York Times. Trump initially misspelled the word “libel” as “liable” and this of course sent mass media into a frenzy.
In an op-ed published yesterday, New York Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly stated that in the midst of their research for their forthcoming book about Kavanaugh, they found a previously unreported allegation of sexual misconduct against the Supreme Court justice.
According to both Kelly and Pogrebin, Yale student Max Stier had witnessed Kavanaugh pull down his pants at a dorm party and his friends then pushed his penis into an unnamed female classmate’s hand.
Stier reportedly told senators and the FBI about the incident during the investigation into the then-Supreme Court justice nominee last year during the Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford accusation trial. According to the Times op-ed, the FBI did not investigate Stier’s account.
Trump accused the “Radical Left” and news media of attempting to intimidate Mr. Kavanaugh with the new allegation.
“Brett Kavanaugh should start suing people for libel, or the Justice Department should come to his rescue. The lies being told about him are unbelievable. False Accusations without recrimination. When does it stop? They are trying to influence his opinions. Can’t let that happen!” Trump wrote on Twitter.
Since the new allegation on Kavanaugh, some have been calling for the impeachment of the Supreme Court Justice, the hashtag #impeachkavanugh has been trending on Twitter.
As we always say here at CE, not enough information about this has come to public access to make any complete statements. This certainly doesn’t stop most people from reacting extremely emotionally though, which sometimes you can’t blame people for when you look at the nature of some in high places, but at the same time reacting so emotionally often leads to issues we collectively could avoid by simply remaining calm and pursuing more information.
This, of course, is the design of our modern engineered rage culture, but this isn’t to say there isn’t truth to allegations like this, more so that creating rage, whether events are true or not, is what pulls society apart. This is the clear goal of those in power beyond government.
That said, it’s possible Kavanaugh is guilty in this case. While the Blasey Ford story in 2018 seemed to fall apart very quickly, including her witnesses, one cannot simply brush off new allegations. I do feel it is the responsibility of people and the media to be responsible and not move into a political rage as it often happens. I also feel honouring such allegations with a proper investigation is a necessary step in our current society.
On the Right, some might view this solely as a political ploy to create more chaos around Trump, this is not a bad observation as we have seen this so heavily with the hoaxed Russian Collusion investigation. It’s media ploys like that, which become proven false, that make it hard for people to then believe events that could be true.
On the Left, this story fits right into the rhetoric that has been building for years. The reality is, we have learned that many in high places are involved in inappropriate sexual acts. It simply appears though that we only want to see the truth of ones that fit our political beliefs and identity. For example, the DNC’s prized Clinton’s are highly implicated with Epstein’s pedo-ring, but that isn’t a convenient narrative for our beliefs, so let’s just stick to the Right and Kavanaugh being guilty.
Perhaps we can’t see the world clearly when we crowd our observation with identities and political sides?
The CE protocol is what it is for a reason, it’s designed to help humanity evolve and find peace. This involves breaking the illusion of our reality, awakening neutrality within ourselves, deprogramming limits and living aligned with that state of being. In this case, if we do not break the illusion political sides place on us, we cannot expect to see the truth of our world.
Those on the Left and those on the Right will always fail to see the hidden hand above that works to engineer society into these divides and keep us disempowered both consciously and within society.
Check out the CE Protocol here to learn more about how we can truly shift the way we see our world and ourselves.
