Guest Feature: “The Great Reset & The End of Biological Humans” (Alison McDowell) and Bonus Feature “Harvesting Energy from the Human Body”

Heart of Darkness 2.0?

What if “here there be dragons”


some deep, dark,

quantum location

on the human genomic map 

sourced by some 


searching for energy sources

that costs them nothing but us, all, 

until, brain neutered, power-drained,

we are harvested 

in some

Organic Farming Sustainability Project?…

I know.

Sounds like a horror novel.

A long one, though, because it takes time to build the plot and characters in plain sight, obscured for as long as possible with many distractions, crises, and the tongues of many slick salesmen programmed over time by some Ministry of Truth–to fundamentally transform civilization to one devoid of critical thinking, imagination, creativity, invention, art, poetry, prose, music, and ultimately, free will

But how, Virginia, might they do that?

Consider just this one video tapestry of many strands, so to speak, for some clues.

Consider also the bonus feature for one of the specs. – pbn

Trouble Ahead with AI? See What Experts Say (Guest Article) and Be Encouraged by What God Says

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

I am not a tech expert, but I do rely on common sense and reason as much as anyone else. But as a believer, I also have another source of knowledge and insight, one that remains the same “yesterday, today, and forever” (more below).

The predictions, warnings, and suggestions offered in the guest article, also below, are by experts who have explored the potential of bad outcomes as related to AI, both unintended and arguably intended. It is a fascinating read, but there are many other factors also in play when humans play with powerful new toys. Consider the following: Continue reading

4 Practical + Spiritual Warfare Strategies for Today from the Book of Nehemiah

Phyllis  Beveridge Nissila

Part 2

It seems time to re-post this. It’s always good to be reminded of the wiles of the devil against the church, especially in such a time as this.-pbn

Old-Testament-era prophet Nehemiah, who was commissioned to rebuild the wall around Jerusalem, employed several practical  strategies to deal with his enemies. Continue reading

On Remembering the Wisdom and Strength of “Small Things” (Another Resolution for ’22 from Proverbs 30:24-28)

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

See previous resolution for ’22.

Short version: the secret to both natural and supernatural strength and wisdom for both here and hereafter is syncing with the Source.

Today’s inspiration–and resolution–is drawn from Proverbs 30: 24-28 which is an exceptionally good passage to remember if you, like many in such a time as this, are feeling small and unimportant, literally or figuratively–or if some would like to CONVINCE you of same.

For by all appearances we–like the literal “small things” God has created that are often barely noticed–might seem unimportant and powerless, too, but appearances should not always be trusted.

The Proverbs excerpt below provides good examples of what I mean; the analogies almost preach for themselves. Continue reading

Surviving “COV-world Abuse” (Guest Commentary) Pssst: Doesn’t Take a PhD

The guest comment below appeared beneath a video clip of a professor who fears that given the nature of the powerful forces trying to suppress the truth about the “COV-world,” as the commenter describes our world this past two years, future historians  might “cover up” the truth, too.

Perhaps the professor believes they will be aligned with  the “victors” in this global conflict, and, as the old saying goes, the victors write the history books?

At any rate, I thought the commenter did a good job of explaining that it won’t take a future historian, or a PhD today for that matter, to deduce the truth because millions have already figured it out, meaning those who have survived abusive relationships by acquiring a specific set of skills that can be adapted in today’s COV-world.

See what you think. Continue reading

Defying the Angst in ’22 From the Get-Go (and for Grins)

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

For my New Year’s resolution this year, I have decided to make a change where change begins: in thought and attitude. I have chosen this for a banner:

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things. (Philippians 4:8)

And I have chosen this for an addendum:

A sense of humor helps lighten the mental and spiritual load.

I mean, in contrast to the above, take a look Continue reading

The Best Despite the Worst in the Time of COVID

Phyllis Beveridge Nissila

If you think about it, for as much grief, pain, lawlessness, unconstitutionality, death, destruction, petty tyrant eruptions, and over-all gloom and doom certain dark forces have perpetrated against humanity the past two years by the deployment of COVID 19 and its so-called vaccines, this seeming war against the world has also provided those who are resisting the evil therein, whether early or late to the fray, much good, too, as in, “what Satan has meant for harm, God has used for good” (Genesis 50:20).

And God is not done yet.

On the “surface” level, consider… Continue reading

“Autumn leaves: a journey to Bishopsbourne in the Elham Valley” (Guest Feature by English Writer Colin Markham)

Autumn leaves: a journey to Bishopsbourne in the Elham Valley 

Most sweet it is with uplifted eyes

To pace the ground, if path be there or none,

While a fair region round the traveller lies

Which he forbears again to look upon;

Pleased rather with some soft ideal scene,

The work of Fancy, or some happy tone

Of meditation, slipping in between

The beauty coming and the beauty gone…. [1] 

A walk through woodland can be an eerie experience, especially when the brisk hand of Autumn has wrought devastation among the trees. Continue reading

“King Catom” Part 2, Upgrade and Update

When I read this article this morning…

Creating believable real-time digital humans is incredibly challenging and time-consuming. What if we could make the process radically simpler, faster, and more scalable—without compromising on quality 

Introducing MetaHuman Creator.

…I recalled the post below from five years ago. 

Of course such high-tech whizmatronics read like they’re still in the production and advertising stages (not having mined enough data on us, I suppose), but, anyway, see what you think.-pbn
