In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Melania's decision to wear a jacket with the message, "I REALLY DON'T CARE, DO U?" when she went to visit immigrant children in a detention center clearly contains a hidden message.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this blatant act of symbolic messaging, fully uncharacteristic of the office of the FLOTUS, indicate that we are in a special time, where things that have always been hidden from us are soon to be revealed?

If you were perplexed when you heard that First Lady Melania Trump made a surprise visit to a child detention center in McAllen, Texas wearing a jacket with the message “I REALLY DON’T CARE, DO U?”, welcome to the club. It is a maneuver that nobody–whether in mainstream or alternative news–has been able to make coherent sense of.

It is important to note that Melania took the jacket off prior to going into the facility, but wore the jacket on the way there where the press took photos.

Facts First

Amid the controversy stirred up by Democrats that Donald Trump’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ immigration policy has led to the separation of illegal immigrant children from their parents, Donald Trump signed an executive order on June 20th that stops the separation of illegal immigrant children and parents at the border.

The jacket worn by Melania on her June 21st trip was a $39 cape from the 2016 Spring-Summer collection of Zara, a fast-fashion brand started by one-time ‘richest-in-the-world’ billionaire Amancio Ortega.

Melania’s stylist Hervé Pierre told Women’s Wear Daily he had never seen the jacket before, but declined to comment any further.

That day, FLOTUS communications director Stephanie Grisham implies that there is no ‘hidden message’:

Today’s visit w the children in Texas impacted @flotus greatly. If media would spend their time & energy on her actions & efforts to help kids – rather than speculate & focus on her wardrobe – we could get so much accomplished on behalf of children. #SheCares #ItsJustAJacket

— Stephanie Grisham (@StephGrisham45) June 21, 2018

Later that same day, Donald Trump contradicts Grisham and implies there was a message to his wife’s madness:

Obvious Ploy

What is self-evident from the facts is that this was not ‘just a jacket’ that Melania chose to wear on this particular day, and her communications director knows it. Anyone aware of Melania’s meticulous and purposeful style habits would know that this obviously awkward and uncharacteristic choice of garment, complete with offensive message, was done for a special reason.

She didn’t even own this jacket, as per her stylist. She was obviously asked to do this, and not by Donald himself–more likely by advisors that are managing much of what Donald Trump says and does. For her to be willing to subject herself to the obvious derision and mockery of the mainstream media, it must have been somewhat important.

And this was not lost on the mainstream media. It was SO obviously a fashion faux-pas that they must have been thinking, as they were lashing out their tirades about her not caring about the children she was visiting, that somewhere, Trump’s people were having a big and knowing laugh at mainstream media coverage. It became safer for the mainstream to report on what celebrities and others were saying and doing about it, both in outright criticism as well as efforts to turn this into publicity opps for those who ‘really care’ about the children. This tweet from Julia Louis-Dreyfus kind of encapsulates what was being reported on:

Attack On Fake News Media?

Now does this jacket signify an attack on Fake News Media, as Donald Trump tweeted? Perhaps, but certainly not on the part of Melania. It does put the mainstream media in a difficult position: opening them up to criticism for focusing on Melania’s fashion rather than her efforts to help these children, but making it impossible for them to ignore. But this is only the first cut. What really seems to be going on is an attempt to gain control of the narrative, not only about immigration policy but about one of the most important things happening on the planet: child (and human) trafficking, something that Trump has hinted that the mainstream media has been complicit in.

Child Trafficking

Like no other president before him, the Trump Administration is bringing human trafficking to light and combating the slave trade, sex trafficking, and pedophilia. Under Jeff Sessions there have been thousands of arrests on sex traffickers and pedophile rings; the information barely gets a mention in mainstream media.

Trump’s ‘Zero Tolerance’ Immigration policy was designed to prosecute adults who were bringing children with them across the border either for cover or to eventually sell. There was a Senate Report in 2016 entitled ‘Protecting Unaccompanied Alien Children from Trafficking and Other Abuses’ that describes, among other things, how immigrant children were used for forced labor at an egg farm in Marion, Ohio.

Trump appears to be getting the upper hand in the debate by blaming the Democrats for being unwilling to agree to legislation on immigration that would close loopholes that are exploited by those adults crossing the border Trump refers to as ‘coyotes.’ In a recent speech Trump noted that ‘Trafficking is worse today than at any time in history,’ and it seems that politicians who will not be willing to acknowledge what a huge problem human trafficking is will begin to be seen as facilitating it.

Back To Melania

It is noteworthy that within the Texas facility Melania visited while wearing her jacket, 49 of the 55 children staying there had arrived in the country unaccompanied. While the outcry promulgated by Democrats was about children being separated from their parents, what the public is hopefully starting to get alerted to is that there is a far more significant and widespread crisis about child exploitation and trafficking that the Democrats don’t seem to be in a hurry to acknowledge or to solve.

While it indeed seems that the Democrats are getting in the way of efforts to combat human trafficking, my theory looks beyond left/right politics. Political administrations from both sides have for a long time either turned a blind eye or were complicit in allowing child and human trafficking activities to flow unabated. The reason for that? Because these activities are actually run by the small, powerful elite who control the government.

Message To The Elite

I believe the real story here, and the underlying reason that Melania’s jacket ploy was used, is to send a cryptic message out to this very elite group, saying that all ‘pretense’ to caring about children will be laid bare, and the nefarious abuse of children perpetrated by this group will soon be brought to light. There seems to be a confidence with which Melania, Donald, and the White House are carrying themselves, as if to say that this hidden group that has so long controlled political activity in the country has lost enough power that they will soon be revealed.

An interesting note is that Zara founder Amancio Ortega stepped down right after Trump signed the executive order to freeze assets of those involved in crimes against humanity. It is not a big stretch to think that someone who has risen to become the world’s richest man selling cheap clothing is part of the elite group.

Regardless, the whole jacket incident is the most blatant attempt I think the American presidency has ever made to convey to people that things in our world are not as they seem. We are at the precipice of receiving revelations that will surely anger and disturb us, but we need to have the courage to ready ourselves for it. I believe that an end to the systemic coverups about child trafficking by the elite/mainstream media axis may soon be upon us.

The Quantum Eraser Experiment: What Happens In The Present Can Change The Past

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    At the quantum scale, what we do in the present can impact what happens in the past. This is shown through what's known as the quantum delayed choice choice, or quantum eraser experiment.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are factors associated with consciousness directly intertwined with physical material matter at the quantum scale? What does this mean when it comes to our physical material world in relation to our thoughts, perceptions, feelings and emotions?

Before you begin...

Take a moment and breathe. Place your hand over your chest area, near your heart. Breathe slowly into the area for about a minute, focusing on a sense of ease entering your mind and body. Click here to learn why we suggest this.

One of the founding fathers of quantum theory, Max Planck, who is often credited with originating quantum theory – a feat that won him the Physics Nobel Prize in 1918 – once stated: “I regard consciousness as fundamental. I regard matter as derivative from consciousness. We cannot get behind consciousness. Everything that we talk about, everything that we regard as exiting, postulates consciousness.”

Fast forward to today and there are a number of experiments in multiple fields showing that Planck was right. Consciousness is fundamental and it is directly intertwined with what we call physical material matter. You cannot explain consciousness in terms of the existing fundamentals like space, time, mass, and charge. As a result, the logical thing to do is postulate whether consciousness itself is something fundamental to the existence of reality.

A classic experiment used to examine the role of consciousness and its relationship to matter is the quantum double slit experiment. In this experiment, tiny bits of matter (photons, electrons, or any atomic-sized object) are shot toward a screen that has two slits in it. When there is no measuring device placed at the screen, the tiny bits of matter act as a “wave” and creates an “interference” pattern on the other side where a wall is placed to catch the pattern. Because there was no measuring or observation device used to see what slit the matter went through, we cannot know what path it took. When the pattern on the wall is examined to see what path it took, it represents a wave of possibilities, meaning the matter (particle) went through both slits, and one slit, and interfered with itself, which should be physically impossible. Welcome to the wacky world of quantum physics – anything and everything is possible.

The kicker is, when an observation device is set up to observe what slit the particles go through, the particle then only goes through one, thus collapsing the wave pattern and forming a pattern that is representative of the particle only going through one slit. In other words, the behaviour of the matter changes when we decide to measure  or observe it, the particles act as they are aware they are being watched. 50 percent of the time the particle will go through one slit, and the other 50 percent of the time it will go through the other and form a two slit pattern, just as if they were balls lobbed through one slit or the other.

Observations not only disturb what has to be measured, they produce it…We compel (the electron) to assume a definite position…We ourselves produce the results of the measurement. (M. Mermin, Boojums All the Way Through: Communicating Science ina Prosaic Age (Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 1990, referenced by Dr. Dean Radin, From A paper published in the peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays explaining how this experiment has been used multiple times to explore the role of consciousness in shaping the nature of physical reality

If this isn’t already mind-altering enough for you, one physicist, John Archibald Wheeler, pondered what would happen if we don’t interfere with the photons on their way through the slits? What would happen if we didn’t set up a measuring device to observe what slit the matter went through, and instead, what if behind the back wall there were detectors? One detector is focused on each slit, and just before the particle lands on the screen after it has passed through the slit device, the detectors are pulled away. When no one could detect which slit the photon had gone through, there was a wave pattern, but when the detectors were in place, there was no wave pattern. Similar to observing the particles before they went through the slit. No observation produced an interference pattern, and observation formed a one line, one slit pattern.

If they collapse to a state of particles from a wave at the moment of detection, after they have gone past the slit device, this means that even though they went through the slit unobserved and should produce a wave (interference) pattern, the very act of observing, still, instantly transforms them into particles and collapses the wave function.

This begs the question, how could these detectors interfere with something that had already happened? It would mean that what happened in the present changed the past. The very act of detecting the particles after they go through the slit determines how they went through the slit, either as a wave or as particles. How is this possible?

Like the quantum double slit experiment, the delayed choice/quantum eraser has been demonstrated and repeated multiple times. For example, physicists at the Australian National University (ANU) have conducted John Wheeler’s delayed-choice thought experiment, and the findings were recently published in the journal Nature Physics.

In 2007 (Science 315, 966, 2007), scientists in France shot photons into an apparatus and showed that their actions could retroactively change something that had already happened.

“If we attempt to attribute an objective meaning to the quantum state of a single system, curious paradoxes appear: quantum effects mimic not only instantaneous action-at-a-distance, but also, as seen here, influence of future actions on past events, even after these events have been irrevocably recorded.” (source)

To make the experiment easier to understand, Wheeler used a cosmic scale explanation. Imagine a star emitting a photon billions of years ago, heading in the direction of planet Earth. In between, there is a galaxy. As a result of what’s known as “gravitational lensing,” the light will have to bend around the galaxy in order to reach Earth, so it has to take one of two paths, going left or going right. Billions of years later, if one decides to set up an apparatus to “catch” the photon, the resulting pattern would be an interference pattern, as explained above in the double slit experiment. This demonstrates that the photon took one way, and it took the other way. A “wave” of possibilities, but the way it took has not been defined.

One could also choose to “peek” at the incoming photon, setting up a telescope on each side of the galaxy to determine which side the photon passed to reach Earth. The very act of measuring or “watching” which way the photon comes in means it can only come in from one side. The pattern will no longer be an interference pattern representing multiple possibilities, but a single clump pattern showing “one” way.

What does this mean? It means how we choose to measure “now” affects what direction the photon took billions of years ago. Our choice in the present moment affected what had already happened in the past.

Below is a great video of Wheeler explaining.

My mind is blown just writing this article, I can’t stop thinking about it and what it could possibly mean, and how factors associated with consciousness are, in more ways than one, intertwined with what we perceive to be our physical reality. I recently published an article regarding consciousness and how it might be fundamental to the creation of our physical material world. You can read that here if interested.

“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” ― Nikola Tesla

Why does all of this matter? Because it’s one of multiple experiments showing a strong connection between consciousness and physical matter. What does this mean at the classic physics scale? What does it mean with regards to the way we think, feel, perceive? What does it mean when we are talking about solutions to problems we are facing on our planet? If human consciousness could be so fundamental with regards to the ‘creation of our reality’, why aren’t we talking about it more? What impact would changing the way we look at our world have on the human experience? What would happen if we started to see things in a different light?

We tend to believe in our culture that we are beings where everything in our world is happening to us, as opposed to us being intimately connected to everything in our world. How might that knowing change the nature of our choices?

Study Finds That Humans Would Be Quite “Upbeat” About The Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life

As the possibilities of a non-human intellect being present on Earth increase on a daily basis, one critical question must be addressed: How will we deal with it if we make contact? Will we be terrified if we feel threatened? Will we accept it? Will we be able to comprehend it? Or will we dismiss it as just another item to cope with in our increasingly fast-paced world?

Researchers from Arizona State University performed a study to try to find out the answer, and the article is titled “How Will We React to the Discovery of Extraterrestrial Life?”

“If we came face to face with life outside of Earth, we would actually be pretty upbeat about it,” said Arizona State University Assistant Professor of Psychology Michael Varnum.

The pilot study’s articles focused on the 1996 discovery of possibly fossilised extraterrestrial Martian microbes, the 2015 discovery of periodic dimming around Tabby’s Star, thought to indicate the presence of an artificially constructed “Dyson sphere,” and the 2017 discovery of Earth-like exoplanets in a star’s habitable zone.

The pilot study discovered that the language used to depict these events elicited much more positive than negative feelings.

In a second study, the researchers invited over 500 people to write about their potential reactions to the discovery of alien microbial life, as well as humanity’s possible reaction. When considering their individual sentiments as well as those of mankind as a whole, participants’ replies revealed substantially more positive than negative emotions.

“I’d be a little excited about the news,” one participant remarked. “Even if it existed in a rudimentary form, it would be fascinating.”

The scientists discovered evidence of considerably happier than negative emotions in responses to the alleged finding of alien life, and this impact was larger in response to reading about extraterrestrial life than in response to human-made synthetic life.

“This discovery demonstrates that other planets can support life,” one participant stated. “It’s an intriguing and fascinating discovery that might be only the beginning.”

According to Varnum, “taken together, this implies that if we find out we’re not alone, we’ll take the news rather well”
