'The Mystery of the Moon' - Moonlit Nights (NHK World Program, Video)

Quoting from the introduction to this video:

The moon has long fascinated Japanese people. They have given it many different names depending on its shape and the season, and have even aligned their business activities with the stages of the moon.

One reason for that is because of the moon's mysterious powers. Why else does the "moonlight cherry tree" bloom on the night of a full moon? And why does "new moon timber" cut during the period of a waning moon have a wonderful fragrance and excellent quality?

The crescent moon, on its way to becoming a full moon, has particular influence and is a focus for prayers. This program will intrigue you and pique your interest in the mystery of the moon.

'Singing All Day' by Jethro Tull (Song)




Lyrics:

Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Oo, my, my, my
Oo, my, my, my

Went down to the station to look for her there
Looked through the crowds for a glimpse of her hair
Nothing to see but the crowds keep a-staring at me
My, my
Oo, my, my, my

Down in the street, try'n' to remember
Shuffling my feet outside a menswear
Is that her in the fur coat?
No it's not December yet
My, my, my
Oo, my, my, my

Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing

Back to the house, maybe she'll phone me
Singing my song, feeling so lonely
I'll sing very softly, so if the phone rings
I can hear it, I can hear it

Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Singing all day, singing 'bout nothing
Oo, my, my, my
Oo, my, my, my

'Mastermind' by Megadeth (Song)




Lyrics:

Anonymous existence, rendered useless to mankind
Destroy the logic volume in the confines of the mind
En massed and purposeless, marching in a perfect line
Neo-neuro torture, mental meltdown, a heinous crime

Mastermind, I tell you what to think
Mastermind, I tell you what you need
Mastermind, I tell you what to feel
Mastermind

Invade the core of souls to wipe the lives away
Design vacant beings, welcome the inhuman race
Encrypted horror codes, directive psyche overwrite
Processing brains to pabulum;
Delete and format living drives

Mastermind, I tell you what to think
Mastermind, I tell you what you need
Mastermind, I tell you what to feel
Mastermind, I tell you what's real

Solo - Friedman
Solo - Mustaine

Hail to the power age, lest the viral hour comes
Raise the flag of voltage, bow to circuitry unknown
Kneel before the processor, lords of static laugh
Electrons in submission, you must know who I am

I tell you what to think
I don't care what you thought
I tell you what to get
I don't care what you got
I tell you what to think
I don't care what you thought
I tell you what to get
I don't care; I don't care what you got

Mastermind, I tell you what to think
I don't care what you got
Mastermind, I tell you what you need
Mastermind, I tell you what to feel
Mastermind, I tell you what's real
I don't care; I don't care what you got
Subject!

Sophia 2.0 is Here! Hanson Robotics Releases The Future of Humanoid Robots (Video) - With my Comments

Are our leaders & institutions acknowledging their incompetence and abdicating their responsibility by handing over decision making on the future of humanity to intelligent robots/AI ?

It is chilling to see the likes of Dr. David Hanson (of Hanson Robotics, the creator of Sophia) in his presentation at the United Nations, present his vision of the role of AI in our future and state multiple times about Robots becoming 'alive' and the need to inculcate kindness and other human values into their basic working mind/algorithms before they become 'alive'.

Already we have Google and Facebook algorithms censoring and de-ranking content deemed by their standards to be detrimental for general public viewing & well-being. So what is to prevent Sophia or other AI robots or worse still an AI Hive Mind from not only censoring any content critical of AI but also from adopting punitive measures to remove any threat to its existence.

Throw into this mix the deployment of 5G networks, Smart Devices and the 'Internet of Things' and we might as well hand over willingly what little freedom we have left and enlist ourselves for perpetual enslavement.

The Dangers of Artificial Intelligence - Robot Sophia makes fun of Elon Musk - A.I. 2017 (Video)

Quoting from the introduction to this video:

The Dangers of Artificial Intelligence - Robot Sophia jokes and makes fun of Elon Musk - A.I. 2017 - 2ndEarth Alternative (22/04/2017)

Robots are more advanced than many of us may think. They are fully capable of having real world conversations, and have the mental and cognitive structures to eventually surpass humanity in 3-5 years according to Hansen Robotic chief scientist Ben Goertzel. 

Elon Musk with his Artificial Intelligence company OpenAI, which studies the potential dangers associated with A.I. has been adamantly warning humanity that Artificial Intelligence poses one of the biggest impending dangers humanity must confront in the coming years.

The Russians are also in the A.I. game, and have essentially built a Terminator like war robot termed Fedor. They have a robot that doesn't just accurately shoots targets, but also drives a car, which puts a whole new terms to the concepts of Self driving cars.

The Secrets of Wudang Wushu (Documentary)


Quoting from the introduction to this documentary:

- Wushu is a Chinese martial art comprised of “external” and “internal” styles.

- Wudang Wushu is the oldest of the “internal” styles, closely connected to Daoism.

- An ancient legend describes how animal movements inspired its origin.

- While Wudang Wushu is practiced around the world today, its original, authentic form is best preserved by the Daoist monks of the Wudang Mountains.

Chinese martial arts, known as wushu, combine hundreds of different styles that belong to one of two categories. The so-called “external” styles focus on improving muscle and honing battle skills, as famously practiced by Shaolin monks for example. “Internal” styles concentrate on manipulating “qi” or life energy, which is also the basis for most Chinese medicine. 

In the misty Wudang Mountains, followers of Wushu’s legendary founder, Daoist monk, Zhang Sanfeng, practice the oldest of the “internal” Wushu styles - Taijiquan or Wudang Wushu. Legend has it that Zhang Sanfeng was inspired by watching a fight between a sparrow and a snake. The style he created reflects the creatures’ fluid and precise movements. It’s said to build inner strength while practitioners remain calm and composed. In combat, the emphasis is on avoiding attacks and using the enemy’s own strength against them. Many believe that practicing Wudang Wushu also improves health, Zhang Sanfeng is said to have lived to his 300th birthday.

Wudang Wushu is still closely connected to Daoism but today, it is exported around the world in a simplified form without a specific religious and philosophical context. Its authentic form is preserved by the monks of the Wudang Mountains. For centuries they have passed the art on from teacher to student, saving it for future generations. Today they don’t just share the skill with trainee monks but anybody else willing to commit to using this ancient martial art to perfect themselves in body and spirit.

Zhangjiajie's Miracle Stone Forest (NHK World Special Program), Time-sensitive - VOD available only until 04-DEC-17 - JST

Quoting from the introduction to the documentary on the NHK World TV VOD site:

A magnificent panorama of more than 3,000 stone columns soaring as high as 200 meters into the air! Welcome to Zhangjiajie, a region of natural wonder in China that's registered as a World Heritage Site.

Although a popular destination for tourists and a model for the scenic backdrop of the film Avatar, much of the area has restricted access and is virtually unknown. With the permission of local authorities, we succeeded in filming this wonderland with a high-resolution 4K camera mounted on a drone.

Join us as we explore the mystery of a mountain with a giant hole located 1,000 meters above the valley floor; discover rice paddies cultivated on steep precipices; and document the lives of local minority peoples. Travel back in time to retrace the ancient roots of Zhangjiajie in the Han dynasty, and explore the secrets of geologic change that gave rise to these dramatic columns of stone.

And, as a special treat, witness the rare occurrence of the miraculous Torrent of Mist issuing from the mountain hole like white smoke from a dragon's mouth. Our bird's-eye view highlights the special appeal of Zhangjiajie for all to see!

'Why Look For The Key' by Howard Jones (Song)



Lyrics:

And they made the secret pact
His knowledge would be tapped
The link was based on a respect
On their lives they would reflect
A perfect state of non-attachment
Was striven for and claimed as fact
The younger grew and learnt his lesson well
All his ideals were intact

Why look for the key in another
The answer lay in his own heart
Won't find yourself in some other
It always was there right at the start

But power it corrupted
That's where attachment starts
The power had erupted
The spell will crack

As each mental bond was broken
Strength grew in the young man's heart
What began as love not passion
Had left a seed in his heart

Why look for the key in another
The answer lay in his own heart
Won't find yourself in some other
It always was there right at the start

Why look for the key in another
The answer lay in his own heart
Won't find yourself in some other
It always was there right at the start

Why look for the key in another

Won't find yourself in some other

5G Wireless Radiation Dangers (Video)

Quoting from the introduction to this video:

5G millimeter wave radiation dangers described by expert. These small cell transmitters will be located near every 2 to 10 homes, exposing your family to harmful, carcinogenic, neurotoxic, and genotoxic wireless radiation. See www.Bioiniative.org for more info.

Lethal levels of microwaves are filling our living space as a corrupt FCC facilitates an epidemic of brain cancer in our youth and other horrors to unfold. Our physiology is vulnerable to microwaves!

Wifi, wireless home phone, smart meters, WLAN, and now 5th Generation 5G will flood our environment even more: Lethal Levels!

Cell phones are known to increase the rate of breast cancer when stored in bras and shirt pockets, testicular cancer when carried in pants pockets and the FCC lets it go on because they're former hirelings of the industries they're supposed to regulate in the public interest.  They have not addressed the dangers here revealed, that other countries have already appropriately dealt with.
