The cancer has already cancer – and now we are creating A.I. to solve what exactly?

Metastatic cancer

For cancer cells to spread to other parts of the body, they have to go through many changes: They have to be able to break away from the original (primary) tumour and get into the bloodstream or lymph system, which can carry them to another part of the body.

Truth

“To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true”.

Aristotle

 

Question to each one of us

This article is written in the thinking that we are now facing the greatest threat of life – artificial intelligence. It is not only the biggest threat to us humans, it is the biggest threat to all life forms existing on this planet as well as on any other planet, once the A.I. will expand throughout space. This is, what every intelligent life form is aiming for. It needs to expand and to be “fed”. And it will protect itself, which is something that we humans are not doing.
In the moment of our greatest threat, we experience also a great chance finding to each other and finding the truth. With the truth is meant, finding the true source of our problems. And what the truth is, you have read in the beginning of this article.

The question is:

If you are the frog which was sitting in the cold water while it gets heated up to boiling temperature, would you become aware of your situation early enough to jump out or will you die?
It is only your own decision, what will happen. So, think very carefully. Your personal decision affects all of us.

The beginning of the cancer – The history of money

Coins and paper money

Metals objects were introduced as money around 5000 B.C. By 700 BC, the Lydians became the first in the western world to make coins. Countries were soon minting their own series of coins with specific values. Metal was used because it was readily available, easy to work with and could be recycled. Since coins were given a certain value, it became easier to compare the cost of items people wanted.

Some of the earliest known paper money dates back to ancient China, where the issuing of paper money became common from about AD 960 onwards.

Representative money

With the introduction of paper currency and non-precious coinage, commodity money evolved into representative money. This meant that what money itself was made of no longer had to be very valuable.

Representative money was backed by a government or bank’s promise to exchange it for a certain amount of silver or gold.

For example, the old British Pound bill or Pound Sterling was once guaranteed to be redeemable for a pound of sterling silver.

For most of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, the majority of currencies were based on representative money through the use of the gold standard. But this changed around 1900 with very dramatic consequences.

The cancer starts to have his own cancer – Jekyll Island in 1910

While the US Congress officially created the Federal Reserve in 1913, contrarian G. Edward Griffin believes it was born in secret on a secluded island in 1910, designed by a handful of the world’s most powerful men:

Griffin, president of American Media and author of The Discovery of Noah’s Ark, leads a circuitous journey through a different version of history, a recounting that bolsters his belief that mighty cabals aim to subjugate the United States to a new world government. Griffin sees the Federal Reserve System as the primary instrument of these enigmatic groups since he believes that it manipulates economies and people while meeting in closed session. Readers who enjoy conspiracy theories will find much to ponder in Griffin’s book, which is extensive in length and conjecture. More realistic readers may want to do some fact-checking. While always politically neutral, getAbstract suggests this alternative take on economic and political history only to those who are curious about Griffin’s ideas or who like a good international economics horror story and aren’t picky about facts. Even the author says his saga is “incredible, which means unbelievable,” and he’s right, though he expects his audience to accept “the evidence of the truth of this story.” Griffin’s history may indicate how far to the edge some fringe thinkers really sit (unless you agree with his theories – and some do – in which case, you will have a good time reading along as he builds his case).

Griffin looks the Fed “creature” straight in the eye and tells us it is not federal, it has no reserves, and it is not a bank. It is, in fact, a pernicious cartel operating against the public interest. The widespread belief that the Federal Reserve exists to “stabilise the economy” is hogwash; the real reason for its existence is the making of money – not out of “thin air” as is commonly supposed, but, more accurately, out of debt.

Griffin explains that it is the act of borrowing by the federal government that causes money to spring into existence
Griffin takes us through the Open Market steps by which Treasury IOUs (bonds) are inverted by the Federal Reserve into money through the issuance of Federal Reserve checks with no money in existence to cover them; anyone else doing this would go to jail. Congress has made this legal for the Fed, however, because this hidden process allows our congressmen to enjoy unlimited revenue without having to visibly raise taxes.

Without this service, says Griffin, the monetary/political partnership would dissolve, and Congress would abolish the Fed.

What are the results of the metastatic cancer?

Current Environmental Issues

It is high time for human beings to take the ‘right’ action towards saving the earth from major environmental issues. If ignored today, these ill effects are sure to curb human existence in the near future.

Our planet earth has a natural environment, known as ‘Ecosystem’ which includes all humans, plant life, mountains, glaciers, atmosphere, rocks, galaxy, massive oceans and seas. It also includes natural resources such as water, electric charge, fire, magnetism, air and climate.

Engineering developments are resulting in resource depletion and environmental destruction. Modern technologies used in the engineering and manufacturing industry have a major impact on our life in past few years. Due to the rapid changes in the engineering and manufacturing industry have been drastic changes in the environment. Learn how going green can help your business, hire the number 1 environmental speaker, Jim Harris.

Engineering and manufacturing industry has increased the use of materials like metals, plastic, oil and rubber. These are used in the production of numerous end products which can be associated with different industries such as Car production units, shipping industries, Cotton mills, plastics industries, Coal mining, heavy types of machinery and etc which are causing numerous arduous effects and are considered to be non-environment friendly.

Crucial environmental issues are no more a blame game. While most of us crib about dirty air, smelly garbage or polluted water, least do we know it is “us” who is responsible for these unfavourable circumstances leading to cautionary environmental issues.

Here are 10 significant current environmental issues, where human beings play an important role in its cause.

1. Pollution

More than half of the human population knows what is pollution, but we are still not ready to face its damaging consequences. Pollution is not only limited to water, soil and noise but has extended to light, visual, point and non-point sources. Human beings and their actions are majorly responsible for causing all types of pollution. Water pollution is essentially caused by oil spills, urban runoff and ocean dumping. Air pollution rises from burning of fossil fuels, hydraulic fracturing and gases emitted by vehicles. Water and soil pollution are majorly cause from industrial waste.

Plastic pollution

Here are 22 Facts About Plastic Pollution:

  • In the Los Angeles area alone, 10 metric tons of plastic fragments—like grocery bags, straws and soda bottles—are carried into the Pacific Ocean every day.
  • Over the last ten years, we have produced more plastic than during the whole of the last century.
  • 50 percent of the plastic we use, we use just once and throw away.
  • Enough plastic is thrown away each year to circle the earth four times.
  • We currently recover only five percent of the plastics we produce.
  • The average American throws away approximately 185 pounds of plastic per year.
  • Plastic accounts for around 10 percent of the total waste we generate.
  • The production of plastic uses around eight percent of the world’s oil production (bioplastics are not a good solution as they require food source crops).
  • Americans throw away 35 billion plastic water bottles every year (source: Brita)
  • Plastic in the ocean breaks down into such small segments that pieces of plastic from a one liter bottle could end up on every mile of beach throughout the world.
  • Annually approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. More than one million bags are used every minute.
  • 46 percent of plastics float (EPA 2006) and it can drift for years before eventually concentrating in the ocean gyres.
  • It takes 500-1,000 years for plastic to degrade.
  • Billions of pounds of plastic can be found in swirling convergences in the oceans making up about 40 percent of the world’s ocean surfaces. 80 percent of pollution enters the ocean from the land.
  • The Great Pacific Garbage Patch is located in the North Pacific Gyre off the coast of California and is the largest ocean garbage site in the world. This floating mass of plastic is twice the size of Texas, with plastic pieces outnumbering sea life six to one.
  • Plastic constitutes approximately 90 percent of all trash floating on the ocean’s surface, with 46,000 pieces of plastic per square mile.
  • One million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals have killed annually from plastic in our oceans.
  • 44 percent of all seabird species, 22 percent of cetaceans, all sea turtle species and a growing list of fish species have been documented with plastic in or around their bodies.
  • In samples collected in Lake Erie, 85 percent of the plastic particles were smaller than two-tenths of an inch, and much of that was microscopic. Researchers found 1,500 and 1.7 million of these particles per square mile.
  • Virtually every piece of plastic that was ever made still exists in some shape or form (with the exception of the small amount that has been incinerated).
  • Plastic chemicals can be absorbed by the body—93 percent of Americans age six or older test positive for BPA (a plastic chemical).
  • Some of these compounds found in plastic have been found to alter hormones or have other potential human health effects.

2. Climate Change

Climate change today is less of a natural process. It is rapidly occurring due to the ill effects of human actions responsible for disturbing and harmful out comings such as global warming, greenhouse effect, urban heat, coal industry etc. Climate change is not only changing the overall weather scenario but has larger and harmful effects. Some of these include: melting of polar regions, an occurrence of new diseases and permanent inhibition in growth of certain plants essential for human survival.

3. Global Warming

Global warming is another environmental issue which is an increase in earth’s temperature due to the effect of greenhouse gases called carbon dioxide, methane, water vapour and other gases. These gases possess heat-trapping capacity that is needed to create greenhouse effect so that this planet remains warm for people to survive. Without these gases, this planet would turn be cold for life to exist.

During past several decades, the accumulation of greenhouse gases has grown rapidly, which means more heat gets trapped in the atmosphere and few of these gases escape back into space. These gases heat up the earth’s surface and this results in global warming. According to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports, the earth’s temperature has increased by 0.8 degrees Celsius over the past century. Global warming is a serious public health and environmental concern. Global warming can have long-lasting effects which can result in melting of glaciers, climate change, droughts, diseases and increase in hurricane frequency.

4. Deforestation

With the population growing at a rapid pace, the demand for food, shelter and cloth has almost tripled in last few decades. To overcome growing demand, a direct action that we have come to recognize as “Deforestation” occurs. Deforestation means, clearing of forests or green cover for means of agriculture, industrial or urban use. It involves the permanent end of forest cover to make that land available for the residential, commercial or industrial purpose.

According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an estimated 18 million acres (7.3 million hectares) of forest are lost each year. The long-term effects of deforestation can be severely devastating and alarming as they may cause floods, soil erosion, increase in global warming, climate imbalance, wildlife extinction and other serious environmental issues.

5. Overpopulation

This is a never-ending human tragedy which is responsible for causing all types of environmental issues. Water pollution, resources crisis, gender imbalance, pollution, land pollution, urban sprawling, deforestation, overproduction are some common examples of dangerous effects caused by overpopulation. Despite efforts taken by the government in terms of family planning in many countries, overpopulation is difficult to control at international level. This has become more like a subjective concern and no method seems to be 100% efficient to resolve the problem of overpopulation.

6. Industrial and Household Waste

At present, tons of garbage is produced by each household each year. Items that can be recycled are sent to local recycling unit while other items become a part of the landfills or sent to third world countries. Due to increase in demand for food, shelter and house, more goods are produced. This resulted in the creation of more waste that needs to be disposed of. Most waste is buried underground in landfill sites. The presence of huge landfills sites across the city poses serious environmental concerns. It affects human health, degrades soil quality, effects wildlife, cause air pollution and results in climate change.

7. Acid Rain

Acid rain simply means rain that is acidic in nature due to the presence of certain pollutants in the atmosphere. These pollutants come in the atmosphere due to the car or industrial processes. Acid rain can occur in form of rain, snow, fog or dry material that settle to earth. Acid rain may cause due to erupting volcanoes, rotting vegetation and sea sprays that produce sulphur dioxide and fires, bacterial decomposition and lightening generate nitrogen dioxide.

Acid rain can also be caused due to man-made sources which include combustion of fossil fuels which release sulphur dioxide and nitrogen oxides into the atmosphere. Acid rain can have devastating effects on aquatic life, forests, public health and architecture and buildings.

8. Ozone Layer Depletion

The ozone layer is a layer of gas that sits 25-30 km above earth’s surface. It mainly contains contain ozone which is a naturally occurring molecule containing three oxygen atoms. This layer is present in the stratosphere and prevents too many harmful UV (ultraviolet) radiation from entering the earth. The ozone layer is capable of absorbing 97-99% of the harmful ultraviolet radiation that is emitted by the sun.

However, during last several decades, human and industrial activity has contributed a lot which has resulted in considerable reduction in the ozone layer of the atmosphere. The main cause of depletion of ozone layer is determined as an excessive release of chlorine and bromine from man-made compounds such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). CFCs (chlorofluorocarbons), halons, CH3CCl3 (Methyl chloroform), CCl4 (Carbon tetrachloride), HCFCs (hydro-chlorofluorocarbons), hydrobromofluorocarbons and methyl bromide are found to have a direct impact on the depletion of the ozone layer.

9. Genetic Engineering

Genetic modification of food, human and animal organs seems like the gem of science and technology but this has major harmful effects. Biotechnology is an impressive technology but limiting is used is the need of the hour. Genetic engineering is a controversial subject and has seen more ill impacts than the benefits it brings to mankind. Genetic pollution and alteration of food products not only have harmful effects on human beings but are responsible for crucial concern known as ‘genetic modification’.

10. Urban Sprawl

Not only India and China are classic examples of overpopulation and urban sprawl leading to land degradation. Today almost all countries are using the land irresponsibly to meet the ever-growing demand of the greedy human wishes. The expansion of industrial areas has not only led to land degradation and soil pollution, but the habitat destruction is a terrible misery. The natural environment consisting of flora and fauna is indiscriminately destructed and lost completely instead of being replaced. This, in the long run, has a harmful impact on human survival and cause a serious environmental issue.

All these damages are also affecting all the other life forms on this planet. They did not do anything to cause them.

Damages to humans done by humans

Casualties World War I

The total number of military and civilian casualties in World War I was more than 41 million: there were over 18 million deaths and 23 million wounded, ranking it among the deadliest conflicts in human history.

The total number of deaths includes about 11 million military personnel and about 7 million civilians. The Triple Entente (also known as the Allies) lost about 6 million military personnel while the Central Powers lost about 4 million. At least 2 million died from diseases and 6 million went missing, presumed dead. This article lists the casualties of the belligerent powers based on official published sources. About two-thirds of military deaths in World War I were in battle, unlike the conflicts that took place in the 19th century when the majority of deaths were due to disease. Nevertheless, disease, including the 1918 flu pandemic and deaths while held as prisoners of war, still caused about one third of total military deaths for all belligerents.

Casualties World War II

World War II was the deadliest military conflict in history in absolute terms of total casualties. Over 60 million people were killed, which was about 3% of the 1940 world population (est. 2.3 billion). World War II fatality statistics vary, with estimates of total deaths ranging from 50 million to more than 80 million. The higher figure of over 80 million includes deaths from war-related disease and famine. Civilians killed totalled 50 to 55 million, including 19 to 28 million from war-related disease and famine. Military deaths from all causes totalled 21 to 25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 5 million prisoners of war.

Recent historical scholarship has shed new light on the topic of Second World War casualties. Research in Russia since the collapse of the Soviet Union has caused a revision of estimates of Soviet WW2 fatalities. According to Russian government figures, USSR losses within postwar borders now stand at 26.6 million. including 8.5 million due to war related famine and disease. In August 2009 the Polish Institute of National Remembrance (IPN) researchers estimated Poland’s dead at between 5.6 and 5.8 million. Historian Rüdiger Overmans of the Military History Research Office (Germany) published a study in 2000 that estimated the German military dead and missing at 5.3 million, including 900,000 men conscripted from outside of Germany’s 1937 borders, in Austria, and in east-central Europe. The People’s Republic of China puts its war dead at 20 million, while the Japanese government puts its casualties due to the war at 3.1 million.

We achieved all these damages and casualties in only 2017 years. Scientists have calculated that Earth is 4.54 billion years old, with an error range of 50 million years. Therefore, we are far away from calling ourselves “civilised society” or the most powerful species.

Now, we are creating A.I. artificial intelligence in the hope for help

Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth. And the truth is, there is something terribly wrong with this country, isn’t there? Cruelty and injustice, intolerance and oppression. And where once you had the freedom to object, to think and speak as you saw fit, you now have censors and systems of surveillance coercing your conformity and soliciting your submission.

How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those more responsible than others, and they will be held accountable, but again truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty, you need only look into a mirror.

V

Some people are buying sports equipment and fitness machines in the meaning that these machines will make them slimmer and healthier. Today, we are working on projects like “machine learning” and “artificial intelligence”. The main purpose of these projects is in most cases the thought, that A.I. will help us to solve the problems on our planet.

But the truth is, that we all caused these problems. We all let the things above mentioned happen. You see, laziness and comfort are the biggest enemy of any longterm thinking and taking responsibility for important decisions. The creation of a comfortable life without taking responsibility for our actions is not the correct understanding of living in freedom. Being a human is not an easy thing. It needs some level of discipline, of research, of careful thinking and most of all of being fully aware that each single human on this planet is part of a whole species of human mankind.

Now, what do you gonna do?

Either we heal now, as a team, or we will die as individuals. That’s all it is.

Al Pacino

The true solution of all our problems, within our society, our species, and globally on earth, the home planet for all of us, lies in our own hands: facing the truth. We don’t need artificial intelligence, we don’t need robots, we don’t need machine learning. We don’t need to enhance any humans and we definitely don’t need to replace any humans. What we really have to do now is to have the courage to be humans.

With great power comes great responsibility. Since the existence of human mankind, we have never taken responsibility for what we are doing. Instead of fighting against each other about which kind of religion is more plausible and instead of killing each other for values which have nothing to do with life, we should work on our natural learning and our own development!

We suggest replacing any monetary value system with the simple central orientation and basic for all our decisions and our all doings: LIFE

Preserving life, developing life and most and above anything protecting life, with all its consequences and responsibilities, are the most important orientation points we should have in our focus, no matter what we are doing. At any given time. At any given place or planet.
