How We Are Being Programmed By The Television

My view on what mainstream television is currently:

(Finnish)

Mainstream TV is a way of transmitting Visual Programming for People. Locking Us in front of the strangely pulsating screens, letting our brains fall into sleep and succumb into the mind numbing pleasureness of watching the latest episode of the current blockbuster series. Keeping us sedated, relaxed in our chairs, peaceful.

TV Programming

TV Programming

Enter: Tainment, which keeps us in our current place. How many hours of human development has been wasted by staring into these hypnotizing devices ? How much more richer our lives could be if we were not kept back by the imposed world views of the Mass Media Providers ?

We are being programmed by the TV all the time. We think characters in TV series are Real, we talk about them like they are our Friends. “Hey, did you hear what happened to Joey in the last episode of Friends ? Wasn’t that crazy?! Oh man, That Joey guy!”. We talk about Imaginery People like they are real, something tangible. Isn’t this classed as psychotic behavior by some ? Are we living in a Dream? In a Fantasy ? And if we are, who are we allowing to Create that Fantasy ? You .. or those who control the mass media ?

Want your kid to become a Slave to the Caffeine filled, sugary cola drinks ? Want your kid to think that dressing up like Britney Spears is something to be wanted in Life ? Want your kids heroes to be sucking up to Big Companies that continue raping our Planet for Profit. Then do nothing, let your kids get their world views from the mainstream media, and watch how our society transforms slowly into a land filled with Shopping Centre Temples, where Money, Image, Ego and Golden Bling Bling are worshipped and where everyone is a Slave to the System they have Built.

And From The Heavens God Passed Down Hundreds of Dollars

And From The Heavens God Passed Down Hundreds of Dollars, And Oh Joy, It Was Good

The One God we worship now, Money,  goes Beyond Everything. Morals, Empathy, Feelings and almost everything can be surpassed by the Greed For Money. We have iMagiNated and Created This One Monoteistic Earthly God,  Money, by worshipping it everywhere, putting our I-Magi-Nations into it.

Through Us and Our Lust For Money & Power, Power Over Other Men, we Continue To Support this System (US:THEM).

What We Imagine

We Create

Imagine If You Could Imagine All That Ever Existed

Imagine If You Could Imagine All That Ever Existed

Funny how Easy it Is, but That’s It. When We Imagine Constant Fear and Doubt for the Future, We Create Constant Fear and Doubt.

Currently we live in a System (Us, Them) that Encourages this kind of IMagiNation.

But I Thought Slavery Did Not Exist!

But I Thought Slavery Did Not Exist!

We have to first Break The System, In Order to Evolve. Currently, Mass Media, Movies, CDs, Advertising, Religions, Governments, they all push down the idea of Constant Fear. Fear of the War. Fear that There Is Not Enough for Everyone. That only those who Prove themselves in the Money Game are allocated Resources. Limiting our natural way to Evolve. Limiting Free Copying of Digital Material. Limiting with Copyrights, Patents, Deals, Social Numbers, Rules, Limitations and ultimately Neural Programmings that control everything we do in life.

WHAT? THERE IS _******* ?

WHAT? THERE IS _******* ?

When we break free from that limiting system, we see how things really are. So, if you still want to keep on watching TV, go ahead. But know that it is designed to keep us Passive Consumers, whose behaviour is being modified all the time into a Easily Controlled Group Model, resembling that of Frightened Sheep, kept in a passive mode by filling it’s body with highly sedative and Feelings – blocking chemicals.

Primal Sacred Geometry .. Being Taken Over By Someone

Primal Sacred Geometry .. Being Taken Over By Someone. (Yeah, They Know About Power of Sacred Geometry)

Pushing down passivating cow milk & sugary poison drinks, dictating what News we should beLIEve and what products to buy. Even going So Far as Creating these Fake and Illusionist Reflections of What is Currently Happening in our World, called Movies & TV Series, where people are being told that “THIS IS A MOVIE, THIS IS NOT REAL”.

Then Creating Movies Out Of Real Things, making us beLIEve that This Event Only Happens In Movies, and not In Real Life.

Ultimately, programming our Minds to tell us “THIS IS NOT REAL”, which leads to us Denying that Event from being Created, because we cannot I-Magi-Ne it.

Making us Think that what you see, may not be Real. It may be Unreal. That something you experience, cannot Exists at all. So Far have we Gone in Experiencing Total Disconnection From The True Nature of Our Universe and Creating this big Illusion of Dis-Connectivity. But It Is Time To Move On. To REvolve, Evolve and Ultimately just Love.

What Will Lead Us To This? It’s Simple:

Do Not Let Any External Source To Tell You What You Can iMagiNe!

This Way, We will automatically start behaving as It Is Natural For Us, in Respect With Nature, and with Respect to Each Others. As we start acting on our Highest Behalf, we are at the same time assisting others to walk their paths following  their true Passion. If we Hide Our Powers, We Will Not Reflect the True Nature of Our Selves, and We Will Stay Enslaved as Anonymous Work Drones.

We Have So Long Been Programmed Into Thinking that we do not have enough, that we are not enough, that we need to buy these sunglasses to look cool, to wear these shirts, to listen to this music and to BeLieVe in these Gods and Masters, for they Know The Secret to Life and are So, Oh So, Sacred and Holy! But, We All Have The Secret Within All Of Us, all we have to do is To Look Within, to Find It ! :)

Manifesting Fraktal Forums

I’ve been working for about two weeks  on visualizing, conceptualizing and sorting out the big picture for Fraktal Forums, the project I’m currently working on. I want to show you a sneak peek of the vision I’m having about the system, with some points on the actual implementation and usage too.

see the fraktal view!

see the fraktal view! click for bigger version

You are in the center, with topics that interest you surrounding you, floating like fractals, connected to other topics.

Fraktal Forums

Simplest example application of this way of communication is a text based forum, and that is what I’m targeting as a first milestone for Fraktal Forums too. Currently most of our Internet-forums are displaying text page after page, boringly trying to imitate a book for some silly reason. Computers are not books, and web pages trying to act as books isn’t the most natural way to do things. We should take what’s the best side of a book and combine that with best of new technology. This is what I want to achieve, to make communication and collaboration easier. It is essential for us to communicate, share and remix ideas to achieve global consciousness.

User is in the center of things and can focus on following the discussions that are of relevance to the user. Where the user can create as easily as possible and others can collaborate on that creation process. Realtime flow of data, with rich visualization of the discussions in different contexts.

branch detail

Each branch contains discussions related to that topic. The user can zoom in on different topics and then actually see the discussion happening there, real time. Everything can be connected, as here we can see ‘Games’ linked to ‘software’ and ‘hardware’ for example purposes. This way interesting relations can be made to better understand our communication.

Actual discussion happens in a different view when the user zooms/clicks on the topic. Though, I haven’t yet thought much detail about how the detailed look will be, that’s something that has still to be designed through.

One key point for this kind of representation is also the easiness of following your discussions. The branches and leafs (let’s call nodes leafs from now on) that you have been participating can be highlighted easily, showing if somebody has replied to you. Different branches of the discussion could also be visualized differently based on the content, for example content rich with images would be green as text rich content would be blue. This would let the user know easily what is going on and where. Leafs could be weighted differently based on content, hanging from the brances with real physics simulation. Visualization of discussions could be taken to a whole new level. These are of course ideas only for now, for the first milestone only the most basic features are needed.

What do you think ? Is this an easier way to grasp information ? :)

Much work to do

Ultimately I just want to make sharing information easier. I’ts too cumbersome in most of the cases, it needs to be more natural. Humans have amazing capabilities that don’t rely in logical thinking, but intuition and natural action. This means that we can visualize more than two pages of text at the same time :) And wtf people?! this is 2010 and quoting text is still so hard on most if not all forums. Easy quoting will definitely be part of the natural user interface.

For the server side implementation I’m probably going with PythonDjango, hosted on either Linux or Mac Os X. Client side pure HTML 5, Javascript (Dojo), CSS 3. No legacy support, no flash, only standards based stuff that should work with anybody who cares to support standards. Propably Canvas based drawing, not sure about that yet.

Anyway, this is only a sneak peek, I still have much to do until I can present this idea on a more conceivable level. Anyway, let me know what you think! And I’m not doing this alone, going to need help in the future :) Everything will be kept open source and I will try to document this development process more as I go on, hopefully generating discussion and sparking new ideas :)

Is our Internet freedom being threatened by the EU ?

 

EU telecoms package

EU telecoms package

Like many of the Internet dwellers yesterday, I noticed a distressing page advertised on the frontpage of http://thepiratebay.org yesterday: http://telekompaketet.se/ and further on to http://blackouteurope.eu/. Reading on the subject I was really surprised, are they really voting on the freedom of Internet tomorrow on the 21st day in Sweden? Sweden is right next here to Finland, and this kind of news right in the tails of censoring child pornography related sites and Lex Nokia this seems like the thing we have been subtly prepared for.

I don’t want to live in a world where mass media is owned by the same companies, e-mails are being watched by your employer (Lex Nokia here in Finland) or any content chosen by the internet provider marked is censored because it is controversial (already happening with child pornography). Does anobody who stands for freedom of speech want this?

I can imagine the reasoning how this will be sold to the public. They will make a claim that it’s for something good for the whole public and make the subject so controversial that nobody can comment against it without their public image being put on a negative light. Good examples of these kind of subjects are child pornography, racism or the ever so popular “Think of the children!”. You don’t want to be a pervert, racist or a child hater, do you ? This is how the mass of people will be lured into not exactly being for the cause, but certainly not being against the case. This has already happened with the controversial child pornography filters as mentioned earlier, and the same thing is happening with racism too, see the case of Halla-Aho in Finland:  http://www.halla-aho.com/scripta/

I can’t really understand what the new proposed law runs against, as the big pictures is fuzzy and not everything is told to the conserned citizen. Sites like http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/june2008/061108_kill_internet.htm rumored about this kind of law coming into passing earlier, but I don’t really know how reliable the sources are. Some older news like http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/7495085.stm say that this is happening too, and that they’re doing it for “improving users rights”. Yes, we all know companies like to watch for their users rights, and not how deep their own pockets run.

I will be ready to go on the streets for this. My plan for now is to ask my local representavies if they know any more about this act and let them know that people care.
