Internal Musings:
You have to be secretive in the way you maneuver and search for patterns within logical paths of reasoning, through explorations in constant volatile space

Stockholm-based graphic designer/illustrator/typographer extrodinaire, Björn Johansson, has recently unveiled his latest anatomical typography project, Garamond Corpus.  What began as an exploration into the literal nature of typeface anatomy, has turned into a truly cohesive anatomical deconstruction of typography.   What I appreciate about Björn is his attention to detail and the cleanliness of his designs.
Björn explains his inspiration:
My purpose was to examine the individual letter, its shape and typographic qualities. Our letters have many characteristics comparable to the human: there’s big and small letters, thin and fat, there’s an indication of movement in the italic letter and every upper-case letter has a younger sibling, the lower-case.
Within the field of typography we have a definition for the different parts of the letter which is called the anatomy of the typeface and partly reminds of our own anatomy: the letters have arms and legs, eyes and ears, spines et cetera.

Illustrator Kelsey Niziolek says she “holds a special love in her (he)art for science, health, and medical related topics.” Her series titled, Body Oddities, is the result of a research project on the human body and its bizarre facts, including:
  • If all the bacteria from the intestines was squeezed out, there would be enough to nearly fill an entire mug to the top.
  • The human brain has a similar consistency to that of cooked spaghetti.
  • Every tongue print is as unique as every finger print (a future for tongue scanners perhaps?)

Economic facts: America headed for total collapse

Economic facts: America headed for total collapse:
According to the major polls, at least 2/3 of Americans think, “things will get better”. Yes, they are that stupid. Let’s look at some plain facts:
48% of Americans are considered either “low income” or living in poverty by the government.

20% of households are on Food Stamps.

1 in every 7 adults is on Food Stamps.

1 in 4 children are on Food Stamps.

Almost 3 out of 5 children are considered to be living in “low income” or impoverished homes.

The inflation rate is 10% not 3%.

The real unemployment rate is 22%, not “9%”. During the Great Depression it was “only” 25%.

Only 100 million Americans actually work for a living! They support the other 213 million. Many of these jobs are minimum wage and very low paying.

Household income has been seriously falling for over 10 years now. Your Social Insecurity check will only buy half of what it used to. Less and less people are self employed. More and more people work for the government and are overpaid and underworked.

Only half of black youths under 25 have a job.

Only two thirds of Latino youth under 25 have a job.

The average household debt is 50% more than their annual income.

Only half of Americans over 18 are married; in 1960 72% were married.

In 2005 the average home price was $225,00. It is now $150,000, and will be $100,000 by 2016. 1 in 5 Florida homes sits vacant. New home construction approaches zero.

1 in 5 American men aged 25 to 34 lives with their parents. Health care costs are totally out of control, as is Medicaid and Medicare. ObamaCare will just make all this infinitely worse.

We have 25% of the world prison inmates, but 5% of the population. We now have a police state far worse than China, North Korea, or Cuba.

There are far more derivatives that the GNP of the entire planet. When these collapse the world economy goes down with them.

1 in 7 Americans has 10 or more credit cards. Credit card debt and default are at never-before-seen rates.

Every man, women, child and infant in America owes a half million dollars in unfunded National Debt.
The real National Debt is about $170 trillion, not $17 trillion (the entire GNP is only $14 trillion).

Half of all Americans have less than $10,000 saved for retirement. Social Insecurity was broke decades ago.

One in six of the elderly live below the poverty line.

Half of all homes get some kind of gummint check.

During Obama’s three years in office he accumulated more government debt that in the entire history of this country from George Washington. to when Bill Clinton took office. In a mere three years he accumulated more debt than in 216 years. This is incomprehensible.

Only 1% of us farm for a living. During the Great Depression 25% of Americans were farmers. How and where are we going to get our food?

Americans hog down more prescription drugs that anyone on earth.

America spends HALF the entire worldwide war budget (with 5% of the world population) to attack other countries for no good reason at all. The entire War on Terror is a hoax. Al Qaeda is a media invention. The Taliban poses no threat to us at all.

The Constitution and Bill of Rights have been flushed down the toilet. Every week more Marxist, totalitarian police state bills get quietly passed by Congress with no media coverage.
Now explain how anything will get better.





This Time, A Mysterious “UFO” Spiral Is A Spaceship

This Time, A Mysterious “UFO” Spiral Is A Spaceship:
Writes Discover’s Bad Astronomy:
Last week, over the Middle East, people were shocked to see a bright fan of light moving across the sky, which suddenly turned into a gigantic glowing spiral! This is not just some uncorroborated eyewitness story; there’s video.
Pretty cool, huh? People are claiming it’s a spaceship… and they’re right. But it’s not an alien spaceship. It’s from Russia.

United Nations envisions transhumanist future where man is obsolete

United Nations envisions transhumanist future where man is obsolete:
The Global Future 2045 International Congress, led by iconic futurist Ray Kurzweil and held in Moscow a few months back, lays out a stark vision of the future for neo-humanity where AI, cybernetics, nanotech and other emerging technologies replace mankind– an openly transhumanist vision now being steered by the elite, but which emerged out of the Darwinian-circles directed by the likes of T.H. Huxley and his grandchildren Julian, who coined the term Transhumanism, and Aldous Huxley, author of Brave New World. Resistance to this rapid shift in society, the 2045 conference argues, is nothing short of a return to the middle ages.
As the video points out, the group admittedly met to draft “resolution that will be submitted to the United Nations demanding the implementation of committees to discuss life extension Avatar projects as a necessary tool in the preservation of humankind.”
2045: A New Era for Humanity
Russia 2045 dubs itself a ‘strategic social movement,’ with aims to ‘evolve humanity’ and extend life towards the everlasting. The project outlines a forecast for development in the following increments:
Now: the emergence of new Transhumanist movements & parties amid the ongoing socio-economic crisis between 2012-2013; new centers for cybernetic technologies to radically extend life, where the “race for immortality” starts by 2014, the creation of the avatar (robotic human copy) between 2015-2020, as well as robots to replace human manufacturing & labor, servant tasks; thought controlled robots to displace travel needs; flying cars, thought-driven communications implanted in bodies or ‘sprayed on skin.’ By 2025, the group foresees the creation of an autonomous system providing life support for the brain that is capable of ‘interacting with the environment’; brains transplanted into avatar bodies greatly expanding life and allowing complete sensory experiences. Between 2030-2035, the emergence of “Re-Brain,” a reverse-engineering of the human brain already being mapped out, wherein science comes ‘close to understanding the principles of consciousness.’ By 2035, the first successful transplantation of personality to other data receptacles and the “epoch of cybernetic immortality begins.” 2040-2050 brings the arrival of bodies ‘made of nano-robots’ that can take any shape, as well as hologram bodies. 2045-2050 will bring forth drastic changes to the social structure and sci-tech development. It is in this age that the United Nation’s original promise of the end to war & violence is again predicted, where instead “spiritual self-improvement” takes precedent. A New Era of Neo-Humanity Dawns, according to the video.
This is textbook Transhumanism, rooted in many ancient orders and the philosophy of eugenics.
At its heart, Transhumanism represents an esoteric quest for godhood among certain circles of the elite connected to masonry, occultism and science/technology wherein supposedly evolving, superior beings ‘ethically’ replace lesser humans. This philosophy is portrayed in this summer’s blockbuster Prometheus, a sort of prequel to the Alien series, and directed by Sir Ridley Scott, who founded the film franchise. See Alex’s highly accurate breakdown of the themes behind the movie below, which help illustrate the dangers of emerging technology in the hands of the elite who hold this vision:
Secrets of Prometheus Film Leaked
Fittingly, two of the attendees at the 2012 anglophile Bilderberg meeting were Russians dealing with science & technology (though neither were apparently involved directly in this 2045 conference) including the owner of a Nano technology company, while Bilderberg steering committee members like Silicon Valley exec Peter Thiel are funding private space ventures, artificial island civilizations, next-gen Internet ventures and more.

human bones grown from stem cells

Scientists have succeeded in growing human bone in a lab using stem cells taken from fat tissue.

The research is aimed at one day providing replacement bones for use in transplants and other operations. It took about a month to grow several inch-long segments of fully formed human bone from the stem cells.

"There is a need for artificial bones for injuries and in operations," said Professor Avinoam Kadouri. "We use three dimensional structures to fabricate the bone in the right shape and geometry. We can grow these bones outside the body and then transplant it to the patient at the right time."
