Jostling

Dave Lysak mentioned humans “jostling” in the furtherment of their goals a few comments back in the last post, a nervous agitation of human souls and cells seeking fulfillment of their energy requirements. I found this video clip of jostling ruthenium atoms in carbon nanotubes and thought it thermodynamically similar, at a smaller scale, of what humans are up to.

Rhenium atoms in carbon nanotubes.

You can see that the atoms are unsettled, releasing and accepting photons from each other and from what must be an environment turbulent with electromagnetic wave energy. They jostle and jostle, each in competition with the others to reach that position and bonding configuration closest to absolute zero, which might not be very close zero at all, but closer. Waves are incoming from the environment and outgoing and being passed from electron to electron. If they were chilled sufficiently perhaps the Brownian motion would slow and finally stop. No doubt the mechanism that provides the visuals adds heat to the subject and ambient temperature of earth’s biosphere is not free of turbulence thanks to the sun.

But what does this have to do with humans jostling or any organism for that matter? It may seem counterintuitive, but humans are also trying to achieve the lowest energy state. They bounce around the environment motivated by greed and dopamine trying to find a configuration of atoms and molecules to help settle into a lower energy state, to help them reach their most stable configuration where significant amounts of energy has been depleted from their bonded structures and exhausted as heat wave energy. But humans avoid their own equilibrium state, lowest energy level, by helping others achieve theirs, by eating and essentially burning them. In the process they build-up their own complexity and avoid low-energy equilibrium with the environment. Like recharging a battery before it goes dead. In accordance with the Second Law of Thermodynamics the total energy in bonds that has moved farther away from equilibrium, become more complex, in building the human dissipative structure, is less than the amount of food/bond energy or complexity that was consumed. Some of the food energy lost from the food bonds is exhausted into the local environment and then into space. There can never be one-hundred percent efficiency or conversion of food to dissipative structure. But the entire ecosystem cannot run down to equilibrium as the sun creates electromagnetic turbulence every day to stir the matter, including and especially chlorophyll, which again captures some of the ample energy in bonds, likely later to be released by some other dissipative structure like a caterpillar.

The struggle for existence is the struggle to release energy from other matter that still has the potential to reach a lower energy state. Don’t mind eating the pig, according to the universe it’s not in a optimal state of being. If you eat it, much of the embedded energy will be released and your own structure will be bolstered while a certain proportion finds its way into space. But equally, the human is not in an optimal state either. Nothing that lions and tiger and bears and other humans can’t take care of. The whole biosphere would likely approach its lowest energy state if it weren’t for the sun blasting us daily with wave energy that blows the atoms from their comfortable low-energy states. The complex behaviors of humans and other dissipative structures are no different in essence from atoms jostling to reach the lowest energy state. Humans and other organisms do it at a large scale by eating big chunks of energy rich matter and burning it. The universe thanks you for releasing the heat from the pig, even though you’ve bolstered your own out-of-equilibrium structure.

Squeezing the energy out of fossil fuels is the human’s special project for the universe which has the beneficial side effect of allowing humans to eat much more organic life than would have been possible with the energy derived from their tissues. We can actually eat food that would have traditionally had a negative Energy Return on Energy Invested (EROEI) throughout all of natural history. Fossil fuels have been a nice subsidy while they lasted but have created lots of damage to the coevolved ecosystem. Humans in their rRNA tool-building capacity are desperately trying to come-up with something additional to eat as fossil fuels begin to wane. Even the organic matrix and been stripped bare and has been depleted of nutrients so that even if fossil fuels lasted, the matrix of industrial growth for human food likely would not and fake laboratory meat and meal worms will not make-up for capacities being lost from the natural environment.

Idaho potato farmer.

A farmer (technological RNA) working a field in Idaho that will likely grow taters. The plants will capture the energy from the sun with chlorophyll and produce some starchy sugars to store in the taters. Humans, knowing that there’s a lower energy state potential for the taters, will dig them up and eat them, maybe at McDonald’s, and release their bond energy back to space while bolstering their own structures. It is often said that there are ten calories of fossil fuel energy spent on every calorie of food produced and eaten. Judging by the diesel eating tractor and the irrigation system along with pesticides, processing and distribution, that might be pretty close. It seems like an impressive economies-of-scale operation though, much more efficient than a backyard gardening effort. If humans were to try to accomplish the same feat, planting by hand, harvesting by hand, picking bugs off the plants and carrying water from the nearest river, I’m sure that in the end they would use more energy than they got from the potatoes. Negative EROEI equals starvation. But at least it would be totally organic.

This is an example of high EROEI living:

Cheek storage of excess energy, similar to that found in some rodents.

And this is an example from Madras, India during the famine of 1877 of negative EROEI living:

This is what happens when we suddenly stop using fossil fuels. People on the verge of bankruptcy, also known as death by starvation in the natural world.

    This won’t hurt a bit. My name is Evolution and I’m here to program you. My goal is to make sure energy gradients are reduced. To attack larger gradients and create the tools necessary to do so, you must stop competing against each other and cooperate to consume larger gradient. Cells did this long ago. I will maintain the “hierarchy” feature which evolved naturally when you lived in small groups. At the top of the social hierarchy will be a “God” that is mysteriously responsible for all “creation”. Beneath that God will be human priests to interpret the will of the almighty God and direct worship sessions. The primary reward for participation will be alleviation of fear of death, social acceptance and group safety while consuming the gradient. Don’t move, I’ve almost made the connection to the nucleus accumbens. Done. Do you feel better? Are you ready to cooperate and take-on larger gradients? Just a few more adjustments. You can’t be too religious or you’ll spend all your time on your knees in a church. I must turn-up the social climbing, and individual greed just slightly to make sure you do a good job for “God”. Celibacy is a real deal breaker as it will likely take many generations to get the job done. And if the sun keeps shining and the plants keep growing, it may be a perpetual job. Now get busy enriching yourself and doing God’s work. God is waiting and expects the best from you.

      How’s it doing these days: have all the parts fused with the craziness, or perhaps it’s achieved the Singularity?

      Just been reading a candid contemporary history of the 9th century in Europe and Byzantium by a witty bishop, it sounds fun: the Byzantine Emperor had a mechanical elevating throne which shot him up to the roof while you were bowing and scrapping, and the Pope delighted in the ‘impure embraces’ of several wicked ladies.

      Being a peasant was somewhat less fun, and being a warrior not much better – too many battles, and the slaughter of the whole losing side being usual.

      A roaring trade was done in white eunuchs, emasculated in Verdun (where France later bled to death in WW1 – some places just have bad karma) and exported down south to Muslim Spain, ‘at very great profit’. At the time of the Ottoman Empire, 25% of the boys didn’t survive the operation – investing always has it’s hazards.

      Being a contemporary peasant, it’s nice that I’m awaiting enslavement/extermination/genetic emasculation with a hot brioche, jam, and Columbian coffee for breakfast each morning – for the time being.

  6. The human project of turning fossil fuels into dopamine and opioids is on-going. Spinoza says that God knows best (any gradient reduction is a good gradient reduction).

    Is Nate Hagens of contrite heart? Why? Energy gradient reduction is obviously desirable in the universe. Could it be that evolved human empathy especially between humans, a key adaptation for cooperative existence, with some spill-over into the greater ecosystem is creating some doubt regarding self-destruction? We should celebrate our ability to burn for the greater good of the universe. We could torch the entire fossil fuel and biomass stock immediately except that we must spread it out in a distribution system where it can contact oxygen. And even though starting a giant bonfire would be somewhat enjoyable for a short while, we can get much more dopamine and opioids by driving cars, flying in planes and consuming the bodies of other organic dissipatives. So why feel bad? Is it because we emerged from a long-standing sustainable, ecological system of cells that always gave our progeny a foot in the door to continued existence? And that our seemingly uncontrollable desire for more opioids is essentially slamming the door on their coffins? The universe, if sentient, would be so interested to see how this might turn out. Will the massive explosion of burning things for a “better life” win-out over the slow and sustainable ecological burn? It seems our leaders with graft and corruption, multiple homes, five-hundred foot yachts and so on, have chosen the quick burn route for personal satisfaction. But, but what about the children? Give them Fentanyl or Crystal Meth and send them on their way. That’s a bit of cheating isn’t it? Lots of opioid and not much burn. They should have to work long hours burning fossil fuels at meaningless jobs to get those kinds of rewards. In the meantime mommy and daddy are planning another trip.

Undoubtedly humans have a considerable effect on the climate, but how much of an effect do cosmic ray variations brought about by sun cycles and the migrating and potential flipping of earth’s magnetic field?

      The cloud issue is critical and I can’t find anything definitive or a consensus.

      It does sort of make sense that the bankers would decide to go cold turkey on fossil fuel usage now that growth is dead, not to save the ecosystem, but to transition into a more static “new world order” where populations and consumption are tightly controlled. Reducing fossil fuel use to save us from anthropogenic global warming will be the heart warming excuse for our future poverty and reduction in population. Creating the “static” condition will probably be like stopping the World Trade Center collapse at the fiftieth floor. They’ll need to lop off twenty or thirty floors of consumption and population first if there’s any hope of stopping the cascade back to the Stone Age.

      It only takes a few hours to watch a conspiracy video, whereas requiring the science fundamentals to know if you are being lied to takes years of study. If you are not naturally curious, then you will never do the required work.

      Climate change all on it’s own could extinct the humans [hot house extinctions are the norm on this planet], but CC is only one of a number of existentialist predicaments & problems under the Overshoot umbrella.

      If you look at the data of fossil fuel use over the last 50 years the only conclusion you an come to is the humans don’t take the threat seriously since more is all they’ve done.

      This is why climate change deniers are the dumbests fucks around – worrying over what? Only recently have we slowed down & that has nothing to do with “saving the planet”.
      All hot & bothered [duped] over nothing. If the humans had any control of their energy use or any speed other than full throttle there would be no Megacancer. James never named his blog Megacancer because it’s catchy. It’s descriptive.

      If you wish to get an idea of earth’s future, look to her past – there have been a number of hot house mass extinctions before and the only difference between then & now is in the past it was volcanism that burned buried carbon and puked up mega greenhouse gasses resulting in runaway global warming which led to even nastier stuff like mass reproduction of purple bacteria and a Canfield ocean. This time it’s the humans acting the part of volcanism by digging up the carbon and burning it for our own purposes. The physics & chemistry are the same and it leads to the same nasty outcome, although I doubt any humans will have survived be around to view the purple ocean.

Old enough to have seen many of them, including both the above, and I think it was just evolution-there were so many gaps in the musical ecosphere that had to be filled so these blokes looking for sex and drugs and rock and roll filled them. My go to band as a student were Free-always super cheap and easy to get into the gigs. I doubt if there’s ever been a better rock band in the last thirty years-standards have fallen.

  20. The elimination of energy gradients generally follows the “path of least action” or the shortest course towards equilibrium. It makes sense that the path of least resistance as when electrical fields are guided down an electrical conductor, are also encountered in the case of the dissipative structure. The path of least resistance is through the dissipative or conduit due to its unique structure which also gives the dissipative the energy necessary to maintain structure and behavior. The conduit that conducts the most energy with the least investment multiplies in number. The dissipative that earns the greatest profit will soon supplant other competing conduits. There is an evolutionary contest to become the dissipative that has the “path of least resistance” for the energy gradient. This can be seen in the measure of Energy Return on Energy Invested (EROEI) in which conduits compete for maximal entropic flow with least capital investment. “Profit” is a measurement of of the efficiency and effectiveness of a conduit.

    Since humans are dissipative structures, it occurs to me that their structures, including the formation of their brains and behaviors, should be primarily set to task of earning the greatest income or flow of energy with the least effort. This, in an evolutionary sense, could open the door to many untoward actions like thievery, slavery, warfare, murder, deceptions and much more. Anything that provides a “path of least resistance” for the energy/money flow is likely to be preserved in the DNA. These characteristics only last as long as the energy acquired through their use is invested in copies or progeny. A billionaire that is able to build and organize many technological conduits for energy flow and reap the rewards will likely see those abilities become more scarce unless they are preserved with progeny.

    Some might think that an equal, egalitarian apportionment of energy flow through all dissipatives is the best arrangement. But if it is not the path of least resistance, it will eventually break down to allow the path with maximal flow and profit to take over. Communism or socialism could never compete for flow or profits with capitalism and therefore capitalism supplanted them. Capitalism intends to grow and use resources as fast and efficiently as possible. But it will be a short-term victory ending in extinction as the energy gradient is fully reduced and depleted. It’s no surprise that the main goals of human dissipatives is in getting a “good job” (least amount of work for greatest pay), asset accumulation, money, sex and reproduction. They can also imagine and implement new complex technological conduits through which to channel excess energy and with a high enough EROEI they can siphon off enough energy to buy yachts, expensive cars and large homes. But when the gradient begins to shrink, many small conduits or dissipatives will be eliminated by larger, more powerful ones to steal the energy flow which is becoming scarce. It may seem logical to preserve the economies-of-scale (EOS) conduits while cutting the energy to smaller entities, but the EOS entities are dependent upon nourishment of the smaller consumers of energy. Eliminate the supportive base and the EOS entities go extinct too.

    Humans are not conscious of the forces that have led them to the self-organized present but will continue to follow their subconscious programming which can be summarized in Lotka’s Maximum Power Principle described by Howard T. Odum, ” During self-organization, system designs develop and prevail that maximize power intake, energy transformation, and those uses that reinforce production and efficiency.”

    So sit back now and watch the greedy dissipatives tear each other apart as they compete for diminishing flows of energy. They seemingly can’t access their subconscious programming and even if it were open to introspection, they might find the murder and mayhem quite acceptable. We seem to be in the first stages of elimination of the relatively defenseless useless eaters and their paper claims on future energy flow, which may seem logical but which will eventually lead to collapse of the entire energy dissipating system. International warfare also seems to be a likely outcome as each quasi-species blames adjoining ones for their lack of energy flow and assesses the potential “spoils of war”.

History demonstrates that expectations of infinite growth lead to collapse. Unfortunately, millennia of evidence also indicates that needed attempts to stabilize such societies run counter to the expectations of the populace and of interest groups. For that reason, such attempts at stabilization frequently fail.”

And the billionaires of the world compete with each other to be number one and turn the wealth they wrest from humanity into five-hundred foot yachts and private jets. Don’t forget, “You will will own nothing and be happy.”, the next stage in our technological evolution dominated by sociopathic competitors.

    1. Good interview. I wonder what will happen after what Jamie Diamond describes as an “economic hurricane” blows through in the next six months. Will the war have provided enough cover? Will they try to eliminate Putin concurrently with the economic collapse or was all of the Putin bashing part of the plan to start the diversion of attention in Ukraine? Power and control through the creation of credit seems to be shifting towards power and control by other means since credit and growth is wearing thin. Put on your mask and roll-up your sleeve, lock-down, quarantine, martial law, curfew, gun control, famine, food processing plants burning, trains derailing……………..monkeypox. The Deep State and City of London are putting on quite a show.

      “After the capture of Mariupol, the situation in Ukraine weakened, and on March 21st, Zelensky made an offer that was accommodating to Russia. But as in February, the EU came back two days later with a second package of 500-million Euros for weapons. The UK and the US subsequently put pressure on Zelensky to withdraw his offer. Negotiations in Istanbul subsequently stalled. This was a clear indication that de West didn’t want a negotiated solution.”

      And Soros says we must win against Putin or lose Western Civilization. More likely that the money-changers of New York and London will lose their grip on power. I think we’re going to lose civilization anyway unless there’s another massive “clean” gradient into which we can place our siphons (not Russian oil and gas). Nate Hagens euphemistically calls it “The Great Simplification.”, which is what happens to a body when it expires. I would call it “The Not So Great Death by Megacancer.”

      1. I noticed that he didn’t make the connection to the energy gradients. People in general are blind, working in their dark little cells on new tools to attack the gradients or out in the open on distribution systems which will give them fame, power, wealth and reproductive advantage, to varying degrees and a ticket to consume some of the macerated organic world that flows through the technological arteries. They dismiss what I try to explain in favor of comforting beliefs that sanction doing more of the same. Besides, regardless of what they believe, they’re unfortunately programmed to do exactly what they’re doing. The great nabobs are powerless to suppress the natural “pursuit of happiness” or the dopa-dollar equivalent and are more interested in pursuing their own version of the MPP (mostly by pandering to the desires of their electorates). Human societies collapse because their constituents consume everything in an effort to outdo each other, individually and collectively. If people are amenable to reason when they’re well fed, I’m sure they’ll be extra amenable to reason when they’re starving or can’t afford to drive to work.

And to be the most prolific you have to be the most effective and efficient energy funnel able to turn your winnings into growth without getting eaten by something else. If matter/energy weren’t trying to reach its lowest energy state, like water flowing to the oceans, then the funnels would be of no use. We’re accelerators. Sort of like a big catalyst. We have positive EROEI unless they make us start hunting and eating insects. That’s a conduit that can’t even keep the lights on.

        The area that I’m, Cheshire, CT, kinda went from farm to suburbia. There was no real industry and such here, as far as I know.

        It existed as a small farming community, orchards, dairy, meat… It existed mostly to supply food to the nearby industrial cities, Waterbury, New Haven, Etc. After WW2, it began to be converted into subburbia. This excellerated when the white working class and middle class started to leave the cities., mostly in the ’60’s, I guess. I am the product of a white working class family that stayed in the city. But that’s a whole other story.

But one day they notice that new chairs aren’t arriving and the cost of existing chairs is rising faster than they can accumulate claim tickets.

But then again, that clone-like existence and organization of drones might only accelerate the use of the energy gradients. Surely fighting over ownership slows the consumption. But we do already have some degree of ego suppression in formation of the religion or tribe in which personal good is suppressed in favor of collective good. Leaders or the priestly class like to cultivate and use this behavioral characteristic in which egos disappear and individuals coalesce to accomplish an important task, whether it be “fighting evil” (anti-social behavior) or the tribe one valley over. While the default setting for humans is individual self-interest, they can easily flip into the patriotic collective setting where great sacrifices are acceptable, including fighting and dying in wars. A collective mindset may even free resources previously hoarded for rapid burning during times of strife.

Government can create the money, but that only stokes inflation which makes it impossible for people to pay more in taxes or on debt. Even after the chaos and carnage of the money system explosion there will be a steady inflation as resources are depleted or fall off the list of economically exploitable resources.

    on June 8, 2022 at 4:20 am said:
    @tagio, civilization itself is a giant ponzi scheme based on energy. All is good while we have rising energy availability, just like more cash into a ponzi scheme, but when the input slows to a ponzi everyone heads to the exits at the same time and the scheme collapses.
    Right now with energy there is all sorts of discussions about saving energy for local use, gas exports being targeted by some on the East coast of Australia, similar in other places. IMHO when it becomes obvious to everyone that energy growth is over there will be a rush to conserve what current owners have, while those that rely on buying in their energy will have a very hard time, and probably start using any means to grab others energy. It’s where we have been heading ever since the US invaded Iraq as the US way of life was not negotiable, or more likely since the dawn of agriculture.

    The price of all ‘renewables’ are going up because of the vast energy inputs in their manufacture (mining, transport of ores, heat processes, embedded energy in new factories, delivery and installation), most likely the same for Nuclear power plants and new hydro schemes. The price of these will only fall when the energy to make them declines. If energy prices keep rising as most here are fairly certain they will, then the cost of building Renewables, Nuclear, Hydro will become so high as to be niche’ additions only.

    If we learn anything from history it is that as energy inputs decline, the complexity of a system unravels, no matter if it’s past human civilizations, natural ecosystems, or stars. The decline is also more rapid than the growth in every case. We need a high level of complexity for ‘renewables’ and/or nuclear to be viable alternatives, which means increased energy use.

    No-one is predicting the replacement of the current ~170,000 Twh/yr use of energy with alternatives to fossil fuels, we simply do not have the resources. Every plan I’ve read states replacing everything with ‘electric’ and a much lower overall energy use. Using the latest figures from the World Bank of expected world growth of 3% pa for 2023 and 2024, extrapolated out to 2050, and also using the correlation of energy use with ‘growth’ (remembering we are mining lower grade, deeper, more remote and harder ores), we would need to be producing 388,000 Twh of energy in 2050 to avoid collapse, such is the power of the exponential path ‘we’ have been on over the last couple of centuries.

    All we can do is hope the collapse of the civilization ponzi scheme is a lot slower than other ponzi collapses, but I fear it isn’t, nor is there any evidence it will be slower. Depletion of oil resources (and ECOE) will send prices of coal and gas higher as both require lots of diesel in exploration, extraction and transport.
    Energy will become a scarcer commodity, leading food to be scarcer (because of situations like current fertilizer costs), which will lead to countries or communities holding on to what they have and collecting what they need by any means if possible..

  37. Diversion, the Primary Strategy
    Experience has prevent that the simplest method of securing a silent weapon and gaining control of the public is to keep the public undisciplined and ignorant of the basic system principles on the one hand, while keeping them confused, disorganized, and distracted with matters of no real importance on the other hand.
    This is achieved by:

    disengaging their minds; sabotaging their mental activities; providing a low-quality program of public education in mathematics, logic, systems design and economics; and discouraging technical creativity.
    engaging their emotions, increasing their self-indulgence and their indulgence in emotional and physical activities, by:
    unrelenting emotional affrontations and attacks (mental and emotional rape) by way of constant barrage of sex, violence, and wars in the media – especially the T.V. and the newspapers.
    giving them what they desire – in excess – “junk food for thought” – and depriving them of what they really need.

    rewriting history and law and subjecting the public to the deviant creation, thus being able to shift their thinking from personal needs to highly fabricated outside priorities.
    These preclude their interest in and discovery of the silent weapons of social automation technology.
    The general rule is that there is a profit in confusion; the more confusion, the more profit. Therefore, the best approach is to create problems and then offer solutions.

The book would call into question the sustainability of global economic growth and Peccei would be invited by Schwab to make the keynote speech at the 1973 World Economic Forum. This risqué public relations strategy paid dividends for Schwab and his organisation. From that point on, the forum would grow in size, scale and power.

They have been maneuvering for a one world government the whole 20th century but also had this inconvenient overshoot problem they had to deal with. On top of that the Russians have enough nuclear weapons and resources after World War 2 to stop them and guarantee sovereignty to other nations like Cuba, Iran, North Korea, and China. So basically, since the end of World War 2 they needed to knock Russia out to then knock out all the other dominoes.

            Of course, no one wants to live in a one world government, the point is that we are ruled by psychopaths of an extraordinary degree. Think of our leaders as serial killers. If collapse is inevitable anyways, then this is their last chance for globalism. They just need to make sure the population doesn’t know they are being systemically murdered. I’m not sure psychopaths care to be rational, they simply want to dominate, manipulate and control. Of course, even if they succeed with the population the earth’s climate may still melt down to the point of human extinction anyways. They may make mistakes, but they can’t be totally clueless.

            The flaw in a one world government of course is the problem of excessive complexity. So, it was always a stupid plan. Not understanding complexity does not preclude these people from understanding the connection between energy and finance.

  38. Consent, the Primary Victory
    A silent weapon system operates upon data obtained from a docile public by legal
    (but not always lawful) force. Much information is made available to silent
    weapon systems programmers through the Internal Revenue Service. (See Studies
    in the Structure of the American Economy for an I.R.S. source list.)
    This information consists of the enforced delivery of well-organized data
    contained in federal and state tax forms, collected, assembled, and submitted by
    slave labor provided by taxpayers and employers.
    Furthermore, the number of such forms submitted to the I.R.S. is a useful
    indicator of public consent, an important factor in strategic decision making.
    Other data sources are given in the Short List of Inputs.
    Consent Coefficients – numerical feedback indicating victory status.
    Psychological basis: When the government is able to collect tax and seize private
    property without just compensation, it is an indication that the public is ripe for
    surrender and is consenting to enslavement and legal encroachment. A good and
    easily quantified indicator of harvest time is the number of public citizens who
    pay income tax despite an obvious lack of reciprocal or honest service from the
    government.
    Amplification Energy Sources
    The next step in the process of designing an economic amplifier is discovering the
    energy sources. The energy sources which support any primitive economic system
    are, of course, a supply of raw materials, and the consent of the people to labor
    and consequently assume a certain rank, position, level, or class in the social
    structure, i.e., to provide labor at various levels in the pecking order.
    Each class, in guaranteeing its own level of income, controls the class
    immediately below it, hence preserves the class structure. This provides stability
    and security, but also government from the top.
    As time goes on and communication and education improve, the lower-class
    elements of the social labor structure become knowledgeable and envious of the
    good things that the upper-class members have. They also begin to attain a
    knowledge of energy systems and the ability to enforce their rise through the class
    structure.
    This threatens the sovereignty of the elite.
    If this rise of the lower classes can be postponed long enough, the elite can
    achieve energy dominance, and labor by consent no longer will hold a position of
    an essential energy source.
    Until such energy dominance is absolutely established, the consent of people to
    labor and let others handle their affairs must be taken into consideration, since
    failure to do so could cause the people to interfere in the final transfer of energy
    sources to the control of the elite.
    It is essential to recognize that at this time, public consent is still an essential key
    to the release of energy in the process of economic amplification.

  39. Logistics
    The successful application of a strategy requires a careful study of inputs, outputs,
    the strategy connecting the inputs and the outputs, and the available energy
    sources to fuel the strategy. This study is called logistics.
    A logistical problem is studied at the elementary level first, and then levels of
    greater complexity are studied as a synthesis of elementary factors.
    This means that a given system is analyzed, i.e., broken down into its subsystems,
    and these in turn are analyzed, until by this process, one arrives at the logistical
    “atom,” the individual.
    This is where the process of synthesis propery begins, at the time of birth of the
    individual.
    The Artificial Womb
    From the time a person leaves its mother’s womb, its every effort is directed
    towards building, maintaining, and withdrawing into artificial wombs, various
    sorts of substitute protective devices or shells.
    The objective of these artificial wombs is to provide a stable environment for both
    stable and unstable activity; to provide a shelter for the evolutionary processes of
    growth and maturity – i.e., survival; to provide security for freedom and to provide
    defensive protection for offensive activity.
    This is equally true of both the general public and the elite. However, there is a
    definite difference in the way each of these classes go about the solution of
    problems.
    The Political Structure of a Nation – Dependency
    The primary reason why the individual citizens of a country create a political
    structure is a subconscious wish or desire to perpetuate their own dependency
    relationship of childhood. Simply put, they want a human god to eliminate all risk
    from their life, pat them on the head, kiss their bruises, put a chicken on every
    dinner table, clothe their bodies, tuck them into bed at night, and tell them that
    everything will be alright when they wake up in the morning.
    This public demand is incredible, so the human god, the politician, meets
    incredibility with incredibility by promising the world and delivering nothing. So
    who is the bigger liar? the public? or the “godfather”?
    This public behavior is surrender born of fear, laziness, and expediency. It is the
    basis of the welfare state as a strategic weapon, useful against a disgusting public.
    Action/Offense
    Most people want to be able to subdue and/or kill other human beings which
    disturb their daily lives, but they do not want to have to cope with the moral and
    religious issues which such an overt act on their part might raise. Therefore, they
    assign the dirty work to others (including their own children) so as to keep the
    blood off their hands. They rave about the humane treatment of animals and then
    sit down to a delicious hamburger from a whitewashed slaughterhouse down the
    street and out of sight. But even more hypocritical, they pay taxes to finance a
    professional association of hit men collectively called politicians, and then
    complain about corruption in government.
    Responsibility
    Again, most people want to be free to do the things (to explore, etc.) but they are
    afraid to fail.
    The fear of failure is manifested in irresponsibility, and especially in delegating
    those personal responsibilities to others where success is uncertain or carries
    possible or created liabilities (law) which the person is not prepared to accept.
    They want authority (root word – “author”), but they will not accept responsibility
    or liability. So they hire politicians to face reality for them.
    Summary
    The people hire the politicians so that the people can:
    o obtain security without managing it.
    o obtain action without thinking about it.
    o inflict theft, injury, and death upon others without having to contemplate
    either life or death.
    o avoid responsibility for their own intentions.
    o obtain the benefits of reality and science without exerting themselves in
    the discipline of facing or learning either of these things.
    They give the politicians the power to create and manage a war machine to:
    o provide for the survival of the nation/womb.
    o prevent encroachment of anything upon the nation/womb.
    o destroy the enemy who threatens the nation/womb.
    o destroy those citizens of their own country who do not conform for the
    sake of stability of the nation/womb.
    Politicians hold many quasi-military jobs, the lowest being the police which are
    soldiers, the attorneys and C.P.A.s next who are spies and saboteurs (licensed),
    and the judges who shout orders and run the closed union military shop for
    whatever the market will bear. The generals are industrialists. The “presidential”
    level of commander-in-chief is shared by the international bankers. The people
    know that they have created this farce and financed it with their own taxes
    (consent), but they would rather knuckle under than be the hypocrite.
    Thus, a nation becomes divided into two very distinct parts, a docile sub-nation
    [great silent majority] and a political sub-nation. The political sub-nation remains
    attached to the docile sub-nation, tolerates it, and leaches its substance until it
    grows strong enough to detach itself and then devour its parent.

        Most of us find this hard to fathom. Are there powerful influential people who would consider or plan such a diabolic scheme? The reader who is well versed in geopolitics and aware of the Bilderberg Group, will find this 1981 quote which many attribute to Bilderberg member Jacques Attali. Attali served as a counselor to President François Mitterrand from 1981 to 1991 and was the first head of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in 1991.

        ” The future will be about finding a way to reduce the population. We start with the old, because as soon as they exceed 60-65 years, people live longer than they produce and that costs society dearly. Then the weak, then the useless that do not help society because there will always be more of them, and above all, ultimately, the stupid. Euthanasia targeting these groups; Euthanasia will have to be an essential tool in our future societies, in all cases. Of course, we will not be able to execute people or build camps. We get rid of them by making them believe that it is for their own good. Overpopulation, and mostly useless, is something that is too costly economically. Socially, too, it is much better when the human machine comes to an abrupt standstill than when it gradually deteriorates. Neither will we be able to test millions upon millions of people for their intelligence, you bet that! We will find or cause something a pandemic targeting certain people, a real economic crisis or not, a virus affecting the old or the fat, it doesn’t matter, the weak will succumb to it, the fearful and stupid will believe in it and seek treatment. We will have made sure that treatment is in place, treatment that will be the solution. The selection of idiots then takes care of itself: You go to the slaughter by yourself.”

Why hold back? Things will never get back to normal, even if he defeats Ukraine with their installed puppet president Zelensky, but he may successfully starve much of the West. It’s said he did throw out many Western opportunists after the Soviet Union dissolved which would have been much easier for the globalists to work with. He can play along with the globalists in collapsing the West and extend the war or he can end it quickly. I think he’ll play along.

          The Davos Manifesto

          At the third European Management Symposium, the Forum broadened its European focus, picking the theme “Shaping Your Future in Europe”. His Royal Highness Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was the honorary sponsor and the Commission of the European Communities renewed its patronage.

          Two developments distinguished this Davos meeting. First, Aurelio Peccei, the Italian industrialist, delivered a speech summarizing The Limits to Growth, a book that had been commissioned by the Club of Rome, the global think tank that he founded. When it was published in 1972, the study had caused a sensation for calling into question the sustainability of global economic growth. The authors outlined the choices that society had to make to reconcile economic development and environmental constraints. The landmark publication sold more than 12 million copies and was translated into over 30 languages.

          Second, participants took the initiative to draft a code of ethics based on Klaus Schwab’s stakeholder concept. With just one abstention, all participants approved the text in the final session of the symposium.

          From its beginning, the Forum set out the principle that it should neither act as an advocacy group nor express any opinions on behalf of its members or participants. The Davos Manifesto was a rare exception to this policy.

    Here’s A portion of Donald Rumsfeld’s biography.

    From 1977 to 1985 he served as Chief Executive Officer, President, and then Chairman of G.D. Searle & Co., a worldwide pharmaceutical company. The successful turnaround there earned him awards as the Outstanding Chief Executive Officer in the Pharmaceutical Industry from the Wall Street Transcript (1980) and Financial World (1981). From 1985 to 1990 he was in private business.

    Mr. Rumsfeld served as Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of General Instrument Corporation from 1990 to 1993, a leader in broadband transmission, distribution, and access control technologies. Until being sworn in as the 21st Secretary of Defense, Mr. Rumsfeld served as Chairman of the Board of Gilead Sciences, Inc., a pharmaceutical company.

    2 Pharma companies and a Broad band company. Nothing suspicious here. He wasn’t involved in providing chemical weapons to Iraq.

                  Here’s the first page of silent weapons for quiet wars. I have no means of verifying its authenticity, but I believe its a genuine article. It’s outdated because it from 1979 but the first page sets the intent. I believe the intent is still relevant.

                  TOP SECRET

                  Silent Weapons for Quiet Wars
                  Operations Research Technical Manual TM-SW7905.1

                  Welcome Aboard
                  This publication marks the 25th anniversary of the Third World War, called the “Quiet
                  War”, being conducted using subjective biological warfare, fought with “silent weapons.”

                  This book contains an introductory description of this war, its strategies, and its
                  weaponry.

                  May 1979 #74-1120

                  Security

                  It is patently impossible to discuss social engineering or the automation of a society, i.e.,
                  the engineering of social automation systems (silent weapons) on a national or worldwide
                  scale without implying extensive objectives of social control and destruction of human
                  life, i.e., slavery and genocide.

                  This manual is in itself an analog declaration of intent. Such a writing must be secured
                  from public scrutiny. Otherwise, it might be recognized as a technically formal
                  declaration of domestic war. Furthermore, whenever any person or group of persons in a
                  position of great power and without full knowledge and consent of the public, uses such
                  knowledge and methodologies for economic conquest – it must be understood that a state
                  of domestic warfare exists between said person or group of persons and the public.

                  The solution of today’s problems requires an approach which is ruthlessly candid, with no
                  agonizing over religious, moral or cultural values.

                  You have qualified for this project because of your ability to look at human society with
                  cold objectivity, and yet analyze and discuss your observations and conclusions with
                  others of similar intellectual capacity without the loss of discretion or humility. Such
                  virtues are exercised in your own best interest. Do not deviate from them.

                  I can only assume that what they mean by “todays problems” which “requires an approach which is ruthlessly candid, with no agonizing over religious, moral or cultural values” is the issue of primary concern, that of dominance, revolved around the subject of the energy sciences. The secondary concern is that of limits to growth, or as you call it the megacancer. These people cannot have the first objective without getting control over the second objective.

                  These people benefit too much from civilization not to try something to save themselves. If we were all going to die from collapse anyways what difference does it make for them to kill us now, before we die later. The only way to stop the megacancer is to halt its biological growth and reduce its consumption. Hence “you will own nothing and be happy”.

                  2. Hannah Rothschild, daughter of Jacob, wrote a novel – not Sci-fi – a few years ago in which she revealed some interesting basic assumptions:

                    1/ If the continued power and existence of The Family is threatened, no ethical restraints apply when acting to secure survival, wealth and continued dominance.

                    2/ In the novel, an innocent – and highly talented – young woman is stitched up for theft and murder, but this doesn’t provoke any guilt as ‘she led a miserable poor life, with no prospects, and what was her tiny urban apartment like anyway but a cell? Prison was no different – to her. ‘

                    The ruthless protagonist is exposed, but is let off quite lightly and reigns as head of the family, as her peers feel that she only acted for the best, and they would have done the same in hr place.

                    In a interview, Hannah revealed that Jacob has brought her into the inner workings of the Rothschild firm recently, after a career in the arts, in order to care-take for the next generation.

                    Through the fictional character she was perhaps indirectly addressing the family psychopathy: which is only too human, of course. How many say they would kill for their children?

            Apart from the ultra-wealthy and powerful who can’t bear to think of losing what they have , people who live too much in the intellect – as many scientists and above all technologists do, simply can’t tolerate the thought of death as it confounds and exposes all their delusions about being able to fix or perfect things. It is also totally ego-crushing.

            Religions which enjoin personal humility and recognition of mortality as part of the inevitable, even desirable, order of things help to reconcile people to death, making primitive beliefs much saner in effect than the delusions of the sophisticated.

    1. I would like to look more closely at the evolution of rRNA in cells to get a better feel for how the self-organization with humans is going to turn-out. Perhaps those cells and cellular organizations that were populated by well-controlled RNA populations had a survival advantage. The first thing to be eliminated would be the RNA’s ability to replicate at will with RNA populations kept at an “as needed” level. There wouldn’t be any medical care or retirement either. Some of the predictive programming may be a creative glimpse into the inevitable course of self-organization, but the above clip seems to have hit the mark. They probably won’t get there with humans (dependable, programmable, disposable RNA) which will be ditched in favor of the rapidly evolving robots. They’ve already made great progress.

Now that the houses, cars, educations and medical care are unaffordable because of debt growth and soon all types of energy and food will be beyond reach, it’s time to dump the paper store of wealth. Even gold will be relatively worthless since the many trillions of paper currencies have already cleaned-out the pantry. As it becomes apparent that long-term inflation in excess of rates paid on paper investments is here to stay, there’s only one thing to do, dump the paper which is losing value and buy something real which is inflating in price every day. That’s why everyone is clamoring to get the price inflation under control, because it may encourage a stampede out of paper assets. But what if the inflation is not because of overheating economic activity, but rather because of resource shortages? Raising rates won’t have any effect or will deprive people of the income needed to buy necessities. Growth and increasing supplies has flipped to contraction and inflation. Reducing credit through higher interest rates will certainly cause bankruptcies and won’t solve supply side inflation until many people and businesses are dead or locked-down. Increasing credit with low interest rates will increase leveraged living thereby pricing people out of existence.

    Many mom and pop businesses and people have already been killed by the pandemic and vaccine. Others have been locked-down repeatedly thereby slowing economic activity. What comes next? How about everyone huddling in the basement while awaiting incineration and clouds of radionuclides or a never-ending, population-reducing sequence of pandemics and safe and effective vaccines?

    “In 2018 the United Nations Office of Disaster Risk Reduction warned in its Global Assessment Report that: with the certainty of near-term non-linear changes, the critical assumption of the relationship between past and future risk must now be revisited. The last few years have given us a vivid foretaste of this new and increasingly dangerous and uncertain future. It is one where we cannot consider pandemics, climate change, energy constraints, war, ecosystem destruction, fracturing social cohesion or vulnerabilities within the financial system in isolation, but as one among multiple intensifying and interacting drivers of risk. What they interact through, the synchronised global dance of societal infrastructures, are proving themselves to be vulnerable transmitters, amplifiers, and generators of further disruption.”

    1. Education is development of the analog mind for the developing rRNA, so they can read, write and do arithmetic. Reading mRNA and writing sequences of amino acids is what they do. But reading and writing is not enough if you’re involved in creating new tools. To do that you need the chemistry, physics and math. You can’t design an enzyme without an analog world with “mathematical precision.” Math is simply a grid placed upon reality for humans to describe the same so their tools fit.

      Children are taken at an early age and are put through the education regime to make them most effective rRNA, to work in factories or design/engineer new tools, cells, etc. All of this is a result of evolution, self-organization, profit and loss over millions of years. I’m pretty sure that almost all people are not conscious of what they are or what they’re doing.

      One of the key functions of tools or enzymes in the cellular world is to make available new gradients. Energy is invested in an enzymatic tool which greatly increases the energy return as when an enzyme brings two substrates together at a rate a million times faster than would occur naturally. For example, without specialized tools, fracking for oil would be impossible. The EROEI would be highly negative and extinction of the effort would happen in short order. But with the right tools it becomes possible to get to the oil with a positive energy return (or maybe a slight loss.) Humans build enzymes like cells build enzymes and instead of fossil fuels to energize their tools, the cells use ATP.

      But how important are physics, chemistry and math when the gradients have been mostly tapped? Do we really need to get better and better at emptying “finite” gradients? We will reach a point where even providing educations will not have a positive EROEI, because it only results in unusable RNA sitting around playing video games, wondering where their high-paying job has gone. Eventually, with the damage we’ve done, not even the unaided human will have a positive EROEI. The aided human will have tools, but nothing to apply them to.

      They should also teach you in school that humans kill each other for resources and that is why we are in an arms race and that when resources become scarce competing humans will try to take what you have. That might help the uptake of chemistry, physics and math, but if the world is to be destroyed anyway it might be best to play video games. Thank you well educated, hard working video game rRNA.

Some think it will expand to almost absolute zero while others think it will collapse back upon itself.

With innovative tools, great cellular structures and many roads to nowhere, we’ve released the long-sequestered energy. We can be proud. We didn’t actually do it, the universe did it.

    First of all, a human being perceives the group as an invincible power. Therefore, they stop feeling responsible for their actions because they can act as anonymous figures.

    Second of all, the masses infect their members with their way of feeling and acting. This happens unconsciously and allows for a group to be manipulated by a leader.

    Third of all, groups hypnotize individuals. Being a member of a group leads to experiencing feelings of omnipotence.

    Also, in a group, the unreal predominates over reality.

    Finally, groups are considered survival mechanisms. Thus, not belonging to one is considered dangerous.”

    You could learn a lot from a guy like Gustave Le Bon. I would guess that Jacque Attali is a student of Le Bon.

Published in 1907 and available as a .pdf at archive.org. I’ll be disappointed if he describes humans as rRNA. I’m sure that if he were alive today he would be led to the same conclusion.

But the annual reduction in population probably needs to be somewhere around 200 million people a year to compensate for falling oil production, more if you want to free some oil to build solar and wind. Extra points for Westerners since they burn more oil and somehow believe they’ll have pensions in the future exchangeable for oil. Their pilot operation may be ramped-up to industrial scale with time. We’ll have to wait and see if the vaccines actually kill and sterilize billions and or the impending famines take-out hundreds of millions or billions. In any case, the excess population will be taken out chaotically by nature or methodically by capital owners. Willliam Catton would call it a “bottleneck” although the thin, hollow needle of the hypodermic may be more apt at this time.

    by John Coleman, FMR MI-6 Intelligence Analyst
    (excerpt by henrymakow.com)
    [The Goal is]

    A One World Government and one-unit monetary system under permanent non-elected hereditary oligarchists who self-select from among their numbers in the form of a feudal system as it was in the Middle Ages.
    In this One World entity, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, famines, until 1 billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population.
    There will be no middle class, only rulers and servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One-World unified military to enforce laws in all former countries where no national boundaries shall exist.
    The system will be on the basis of a welfare state; those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws, thus a target for anyone who wishes to kill them. Privately-owned firearms or weapons of any kind will be prohibited.
    Only one religion will be allowed and that will be in the form of a One World Government Church, which has been in existence since 1920 as we shall see. Satanism, Luciferianism and Witchcraft shall he recognized as legitimate One World Government curricula with no private or church schools.
    All Christian churches have already been subverted and Christianity will be a thing of the past in the One World Government. To induce a state where there is no individual freedom or any concept of liberty surviving, there shall be no such thing as republicanism, sovereignty or rights residing with the people. National pride and racial identity shall be stamped out and in the transition phase it shall be subject to the severest penalties to even mention one’s racial origin.
    Each person shall be fully indoctrinated that he or she is a creature of the One World Government with an identification number clearly marked on their person so as to be readily accessible, which identifying number shall be in the master file of the NATO computer in Brussels, Belgium, subject to instant retrieval by any agency of the One World Government at any time.
    The master Files of the CIA, FBI, state and local police agencies, IRS, FEMA, Social Security shall be vastly expanded and form the basis of personal records of all individuals in the United States.

    MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
    Marriage shall be outlawed and there shall be no family life as we know it. Children will be removed from their parents at an early-age and brought up by wards as state property. Such an experiment was carried out in East Germany under Erich Honnecker when children were take away from parents considered by the state to be disloyal citizens.
    Women will he degraded through the continued process of “women’s liberation” movements. Free sex shall be mandatory. Failure to comply at least once by the age of 20 shall be punishable by severe reprisals against her person. Self-abortion shall be taught and practiced after two children are born to a woman; such records shall be contained in the personal file of each woman in the One World Government’s regional computers.
    If a woman falls pregnant after she has previously given birth to two children, she shall be forcibly removed to an abortion clinic for such an abortion and sterilization to be carried out. Pornography shall be promoted and be compulsory showing in every theater of cinema, including homosexual and lesbian pornography.
    DRUGS, MIGRATION, SILVER, BANKS
    The use of “recreational” drugs shall be compulsory, with each person allotted drug quotas which can be purchased at One World Government stores throughout the world. Mind control drugs will be expanded and usage become compulsory. Such mind control drugs shall be given in food and/or water supplies without the knowledge and/or consent of the people.
    Drug bars shall be set up, run by One World Government employees, where the slave-class shall be able to spend their free time. In this manner the non-elite masses will be reduced to the level and behavior of controlled animals with no will of their own and easily regimented and controlled.
    The economic system shall be based upon the ruling oligar-ethical class allowing just enough foods and services to be produced to keep the mass slave labor camps going. All wealth shall be aggregated in the hands of the elite members of the Committee of 300.
    Each individual shall be indoctrinated to understand that he or she is totally dependent upon the state for survival….Only the Committee of 300 members and their elitists shall have the right to any of the earth’s resources. Agriculture shall be solely in the hands of the Committee of 300 with food production strictly controlled.
    gg-stones.jpeg

    As these measures begin to take effect, large populations in the cities shall be forcibly removed to remote areas and those who refuse to go shall be exterminated in the manner of the One World Government experiment carried out by Pol Pot in Cambodia. Euthanasia for the terminally ill and the aged shall be compulsory. No cities shall be larger than a predetermined number as described in the work of Kalgeri.
    Essential workers will be moved to other cities if the one they are in becomes overpopulated. Other non-essential workers will be chosen at random and sent to underpopulated cities to fill “quotas.” … (Quote above)
    From time to time there shall be artificially contrived food and water shortages and medical care to remind the masses that their very existence depends on the goodwill of the Committee of 300. After the destruction of housing, auto, steel and heavy goods industries, there shall he limited housing, and industries of any kind allowed to remain shall be under the direction of NATO’s Club of Rome as shall all scientific and space exploration development, limited to the elite under the control of the Committee of 300…
    The United States will be flooded by peoples of alien cultures who will eventually overwhelm White America, people with no concept of what the United States Constitution stands for and who will, in consequence, do nothing to defend it, and in whose minds the concept of liberty and justice is so weak as to matter little. FOOD and shelter shall be the main concern.
    No central bank save the Bank of International Settlement and the World Bank shall be allowed to operate.
    Private banks will be outlawed. Remuneration for work performed shall be under a uniform predetermined scale throughout the One World Government. There shall be no wage disputes allowed, nor any diversion from the standard uniform scales of pay laid down by the One World Government.
    Those who break the law will be instantly executed. There shall be no cash or coinage in the hands of the non-elite. All transactions shall be carried out by means of a debit card which shall bear the identification number of the holder.
    Any person who in any way infringes the rules and regulations of the Committee of 300 shall have the use of his or her card suspended for varying times according to the nature and severity of the infringement. Such persons will find, when they go to make purchases, that their card is blacklisted and they will not be able to obtain services of any kind.
    Attempts to trade “old” coins, that is to say silver coins of previous and now defunct nations, shall be treated as a capital crime subject to the death penalty. All such coinage shall be required to be surrendered within a given time along with guns, rifles, explosives and automobiles. Only the elite and One World Government high-ranking functionaries will be allowed private transport, weapons, coinage and automobiles….
    Ethnic and religious differences shall be magnified and exacerbated and violent conflict as a means of “settling” their differences shall be encouraged and fostered. All information services and print media shall be under the control of the One World Government. Regular brainwashing control measures shall be passed off as “entertainment” in the manner in which it was practiced and became a fine art in the United States. Youths removed from “disloyal parents,” shall receive special education designed to brutalize them. Youth of both sexes shall receive training to qualify as prison guards for the One World labor camp system.

    “And I despise your books, I despise wisdom and the blessings of this world. It is all worthless, fleeting, illusory, and deceptive, like a mirage. You may be proud, wise, and fine, but death will wipe you off the face of the earth as though you were no more than mice burrowing under the floor, and your posterity, your history, your immortal geniuses will burn or freeze together with the earthly globe.”
