Conspiracy or Coincidence? Gmail version

Any Disinfonaut worth his or her salt will surely already know how the CIA made Google and how Google is poised to become the Ministry of Truth.

Well…

Say it ain't so, Morpheus!

Say it ain’t so, Morpheus!

The dauntless conspiriologists at The Resistance Journals have made another alarming discovery of a symbolic nature, this time concerning Google’s popular email platform, Gmail.

They write:

Freemasonry, like many dozens of other secret societies have branches and off-shoots. I won’t get any deeper into it for two reasons. 1. You can literally spend 15 minutes on YouTube and learn more than the average person will ever know, and 2. because it’s not needed for this article.

One of these Freemasonic “sister” organizations (if you can call it that), and I say sister for a reason, is the “Order of the Eastern Star.”

The Order of the Eastern Star is a special part of Freemasonry (again, not sure if I should call it that) because members can be both male and female.

Chimps are sensitive to what is right and wrong

How a chimpanzee views a video of an infant chimp from another group being killed gives a sense of how human morality and social norms might have evolved. So says Claudia Rudolf von Rohr of the University of Zurich in Switzerland, lead author of a paper in Springer’s journal Human Nature. It provides the first evidence that chimpanzees, like humans, are sensitive to the appropriateness of behaviors, especially those directed toward infants. It also shows that these primates might only take action when a member of their own group is being harmed.

The researchers filmed two social groups of chimpanzees living in two Swiss zoological gardens while the animals repeatedly viewed film clips. The films portrayed the actions of other chimps unknown to them. The control clip showed chimps doing neutral activities such as walking or cracking nuts. The experimental clips included aggressive scenes, such as an infant chimpanzee being killed by its own kind, a small colobus monkey being hunted and killed by chimps, and socially aggressive behavior between chimpanzee adults.

The real Alien vs. Predator is occurring right now in Antarctic waters

Rob_Robbins_Antarctic_toothfish1_1_N

Dr. M via Deep Sea News:

In the freezing and dark waters of the Antarctic, two marine species are pitted against each other in a battle of survival. Each of the players in the evolutionary game is trying to avoid a permanent residency in the other’s stomach. One of the competitors, you may not be surprised by. The behemoth colossal squid can reach sizes of sizes of 495 kg (1091 lbs) and 4.2 meters (13.8 feet). The colossal squid’s competitor? The Antarctic toothfish reaching a puny 200 cm (6.5 feet) and 80 kg (176 pounds) in length at is biggest. Not exactly the size to take on the hooked tentacular mass of a colossal squid. Yet attacks and feedings of this two biological killing machines on each other occurs frequently in the natural world’s answer to Alien vs. Predator.

Remeslo and colleagues*** report 71 toothfish with deep wounds from squid beaks or scratches from suckers.

Consciousness has less control than believed, according to new theory

San Francisco State University via EurekAlert:

Consciousness — the internal dialogue that seems to govern one’s thoughts and actions — is far less powerful than people believe, serving as a passive conduit rather than an active force that exerts control, according to a new theory proposed by an SF State researcher.

Associate Professor of Psychology Ezequiel Morsella’s “Passive Frame Theory” suggests that the conscious mind is like an interpreter helping speakers of different languages communicate.

“The interpreter presents the information but is not the one making any arguments or acting upon the knowledge that is shared,” Morsella said. “Similarly, the information we perceive in our consciousness is not created by conscious processes, nor is it reacted to by conscious processes. Consciousness is the middle-man, and it doesn’t do as much work as you think.”

Morsella and his coauthors’ groundbreaking theory, published online on June 22 by the journal Behavioral and Brain Sciences, contradicts intuitive beliefs about human consciousness and the notion of self.

Skunkwork’s Father of Stealth: Shocking Comments About UFO Technology

Arjun Walia via Collective Evolution:

It’s quite remarkable how many verified statements we have regarding UFOs (unidentified flying objects) and extraterrestrials from people who have held the highest positions possible within the government, military, academia, politics and more. To be honest, it’s overwhelming, and when you put all of those statements together with all of the previously classified documentation that has been released over the past few years, it paints a startling picture. Anybody who has done even a fair amount of research, and adheres to the philosophy of “condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” would not be able to deny this, and I have yet to come across someone who has done the research that still subjects this topic to the “conspiracy theory” realm.

To view a fraction of these verified quotes, and documents, more you can click HERE.

Below is an example, and a video I’ve used many times before, as it is an extremely powerful statement.

Could we one day control the path of lightning?

Institut national de la recherche scientifique – INRS via Science Daily:

Lightning dart across the sky in a flash. And even though we can use lightning rods to increase the probability of it striking at a specific location, its exact path remains unpredictable. At a smaller scale, discharges between two electrodes behave in the same manner, streaking through space to create electric arcs where only the start and end points are fixed. How then can we control the current so that it follows a predetermined path? Professor Roberto Morandotti and his colleagues have discovered a way to guide electric discharges–and even steer them around obstacles–through the clever use of lasers. This scientific breakthrough was published on June 19, 2015, in Science Advances.

Using the Advanced Laser Light Source (ALLS) facility, researchers from the INRS Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications research centre tackled this challenge, which had previously been the subject of intensive research, particularly in the 1970s.

Paranormal Ectoplasm

While paranormal ectoplasm has no basis in fact, its popularity among scientists in the 1800s reflects “the science of its time.”

Daniel Engber at Popular Science:

Of course, these ectoplasms were a parlor trick. Mediums used sleights of hand to present gauze and animal parts as spiritual pheno­mena. As silly as this now seems, many intellectuals of the time found the shows convincing, including Richet, who won a Nobel Prize for his pioneering work on anaphylaxis. “Richet was no dummy,” says Robert Brain, a historian of science at the University of British Columbia. Yet Richet was dogged in his studies of paranormal ectoplasm. “What made ectoplasm seem plausible to otherwise rational, clear-headed scientists?” Brain asks. “There had to be an underlying logic to it.”

He’s right. By the mid-1800s, scientists had discovered a gelatinous substance or “plasm” inside plant and animal cells, which they believed to be the basis for all life on Earth.

Neurologist Studies Brain Waves of Alien Abductees

lobes2

Doctor Michael B. Russo maps the brainwaves of alleged abductees and finds abnormalities in their parietal lobe.

Paul Seaburn at Mysterious Universe has the scoop:

Dr. Russo has the only dense-array electroencephalography (DEEG) machine in Hawaii – a $200,000 device for mapping brain waves. The Big Island must be popular with aliens because Dr. Russo has had numerous patients claiming to be abducted and having transmitters implanted in their brains. He scanned each and compared the results. What Dr. Russo found was that the patients all showed abnormalities in their parietal lobe.

Russo explains what this might mean.

That’s the area that does visual and auditory integration into higher order thinking. The parietal areas process visual and auditory data, but they can intrinsically create it themselves and then send it to the pre-frontal region, where you become aware of it. … there’s something in the parietal areas that’s generating (the feeling that transmissions from aliens are being sent to the brain).

Astronauts on the early Apollo missions orbiting over to the dark side of the moon were surprised to discover a mysterious, bright crescent of light glowing at the horizon. The controversial explanation was sunlight scattered by dust high in the Moon’s tenuous atmosphere, but proof has been hard to come by. Fast forward half a century and, for the first time, a team of scientists has analysed the Moon’s atmospheric dust in real time, discovering a permanent dust cloud. Surprisingly, however, they have failed to explain the glow.

At 384,400 km away, the Moon is our nearest planetary neighbour. It is the only celestial body that humans have set foot on and has it provided a natural tool for understanding the origin of water on Earth, the physics of our Sun and for testing fundamental theories of physics.… Read the rest
