Many have fought and died for the World we enjoy today we should not so easily give it away.

This is a trend by default but it is becoming more common and it is incrementally spreading throughout the World. It is the Virus Apathy.

It is not a personal fault. We all wake-up everyday to go to work – or at least the majority of us do. There in an ever competitive World we go about our work as obedient robot drones. We do not know who we work for as we are only a digit on a Multinational Bank Transfer. We are taught to sing the Company song and made to feel grateful for the fact they have given us work.

If we dare to use our brains we are shot down and made to feel an inch tall. So as good little robots we work as hard as possible in case they replace us with free trade immigrants who will work even harder for less.

When we get home we are too worn out to man the barricades and begin the revolution so we switch off to whatever drama of the day our Government is supposedly dealing with and tell ourselves it will all be better one day.

However, in the meantime we have lost our jobs, taken a pay cut and payed even more for our mortgage or rent.

We pretend Climate Change is not going to burn out homes down even though we know it probably will and we ignore the approaching Tsunami. Instead we attend the local Armageddon Party where drug dealers are the new black and the Police Station is now a Mcdonalds. This is the Trend of ‘If I ignore it it will go away and not keep me up at night’.

Unfortunately whilst we have been busty staying alive and out of Prison our Governments have stuffed up our World and will continue to do so.

So I would like Apathy to disappear forever and be replaced by ‘Government who do and not just say will do’. Many have fought and died for the World we enjoy today we should not so easily give it away.

How much longer can Theresa May survive?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Brexit is too important to the future of the United Kingdom for any one person to ‘upset the apple cart’ with a leadership bid for Prime Minister. PM May has steered the U.K negotiations through some very troubled waters after Davis and Fox let down the people of the U.K by underestimating the resolve of the E.U to ensure that the E.U remains at 27 Member States and not less.

PM May will be left alone until the deal is done. Then in typical British Fashion after all the sleepless nights and long hours PM May has had to endure she will be knifed in the back and sacked.

That is unless PM May is able to chart the future of the UK with a clear and accountable Economic Strategy and not more ‘ Pounds in Peru’ Speeches and the like.

When in April the UK leaves the E.U it will be alone. A new Economic Union is in the best interests of the U.K. With whom? Well those outside of the E.U need leadership and direction if they are to combat the growing Junckers E.U State monolith. If P.M May is able to promote such a union then PM May will likely stay as PM May.

There is a danger that a second referendum may still be on the cards even after the U.K leaves the E.U which is why it is so important to chart the future.

PM May also has other challenges to her tenure as Prime Minister on the Horizon which may yet cause her to resign – the rising crime rate in the U.K needs to addressed – you cannot have two legal systems; one for those who are allowed to commit crime and one for those who are not – without inviting widespread Civil unrest.

Either way PM May will be in Number 10 for a little while longer.

Do you feel the self-driving car industry bubble would burst anytime soon in the next decade or so?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last#

Possibly. What is the natural development of the self-driving car? A train or other forms of connected transport.

I understand that self-driving transport will bring down labour costs and should improve road safety.

However, if we are all being driven around then we may as well use connected transport ie trains and the like.

I think it is a technical distraction more than a new direction. We also have to consider the security concerns – ie hacking. We are unable to safeguard our computer systems let alone those of self-drive cars.

Do you think Theresa May is a “Strong and stable” leader as she so often claims?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

Stable yes but strong I am not so sure. PM May has completely underestimated the EU. There is no way the UK is going to get a good deal – because if the UK does then others may want the same.

May was too trusting of the EU. They have lead PM May down a blind alley. They were never going to do anything other than give it hard to the U.K.

Me I would put up the hard border to Ireland, stop all free movement, put 50 per cent tariffs on all German, Italian and French cars, do a deal with the U.S and tell the E.U that if they want hardball they can have it.

PM May has been far too trusting so ‘strong’ is not a description I would use. PM May has also allowed crime to soar out of control.

However, PM May has the best interests of the UK at heart as I have. I would rather have PM May then Corbyn. Nobody knows who Corbyn really is and for the Military that could be a problem.

Is Brain to Computer Technology to be the New Terrorist Weapon?

Q. Why have I written this?

A. Because I care about our World and the National and Global Security that is needed to ensure that mankind has a future. I perceive the somewhat ‘strange’ attitude of the United States and U.K Security Organisations such as NATO and the CIA/MI5/6 to the ‘Runaway Effect’ of Brain 2 Computer Technology to be a liability to both National and Global Security. I can find no logical reason to explain their lack of understanding of what will if not controlled become a threat to Global Security other than they have been ordered to ignore its development – which in itself a contravention of their own Statutory Requirements to safeguard National Security.

Runaway Effect. An inbuilt organic exponential growth which accelerates as it extrapolates to the point where it becomes a critical mass whose growth cannot be that of a controlled technology but that of an uncontrollable virus.


Brain to Computer Communication is a fact. It is not Science Fiction. We can no longer consign it to the realm of ‘tin hats’ and ‘fanciful imagination’. Research into deciphering the electrical impulses from the mind began in 1875 by Richard Caton who was a British physician. Canton was crucial in discovering the electrical nature of the brain and laid the groundwork for Hans Berger to discover Alpha wave activity in the human brain.


Hitler and the Nazis also carried out the same research. At the end of WW2 1600 Nazi Scientists involved in weapons and associated research went to America with Operation PaperClip . Some were involved in mind research.


Operation Mk Ultra was the CIA’s Public incursion into Brain to Computer Research. The operation began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967, and officially halted in 1973.

page1-220px-ProjectMKULTRA_Senate_Report.pdf


In July 2017  the U.S.A. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA awarded $65 million to develop the perfect, tiny two-way brain-computer interface. That is of course what we are told. No doubt the reality is that in 1875 Governments and Military learned of the possibility of being able to read and control the mind. It is highly likely that Governments and other interested parties have been investing in Brain 2 Computer Research from as far back as the early 1900’s. DARPA Brain Initiative is contracted out to the Private Sector. What are the safeguards in place to ensure a hostile agency, Country or Group have access?


Q. How far advanced is Brain 2 Computer Technology?

A. Nobody knows and that is why the CIA and other Nation’s Security Services must conduct an urgent audit of its progress. Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Why? Because it can be used to control nuclear weapons systems.


In the Research Laboratory the Technology may be hardwired. However, in the real world of Technology Criminal Exploitation a Developed B2C Technology could be  transmitted with an implant that was fitted to a U.S.A.F Fighter Pilot when he was asleep, in a hospital on a operating theatre, when he was in a crowd, when he put his clothing on or when his wife could fit it whilst he slept.  The implants are so small that they can barely be seen by the naked eye. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that at some point in time the B2C Technology will become organic and children will be born with it. All wired up, ready to be used and controlled.


Recently Elon Musk has invested in NeuraLink to also develop Brain 2 Computer Technology. My concern is that as we have not fully developed the Brain’s Capability all his research will do is prevent the natural development of the mind and increase the security risk of Brain 2 Computer Technology. Once a person is implanted with a connection that connection can then be accessed by anybody including those who may not operate in the best interests of National and Business Security. AI is not capable of original thought and never will be. AI will never be able to produce a new idea. Only the Human Brain has imagination.


The National Security Agency website states ‘Defending our Nation. Securing the Future.’ Really NSA ? Type in the words ‘ Dangers of Computer to Brain Technology’ into the NSA website search engine. What do you get – nothing. No warnings, no discussion not even a mention that somebody in your next business meeting could be ‘connected’ or your next Navy Seals Operation could be Wi-Fi’d to the enemy.


Q. How many People since 1875 to present day (2017) did not and have not survived  Research into Brain 2 Computer Technology?


Q. What has happened to all  those who have been experimented on?


Q. Is it possible to encrypt the information flow from the mind and ensure it is not  accessed by those who are not acting in the best interests of National and/or Global Security?

A. No it is not.


Q. Is Brain 2 Computer Technology a massive research program being undertaken by many Governments all over the World and which has no safeguards?


That is the problem. Our ‘intellectually challenged’ Governments do not appear to understand the ‘nightmare’ of what they developing and spending $millions and $millions on. The nightmare of Brain to Computer Technology is that is able to be used by anybody with a computer and the software for receiving and transmitting information from the Brain – and for many in our morally deficient world everything has a Price and many including ISIS and Al Qaeda as well as Criminals will pay it.


When the Commander of a United States Navy of the Ohio Class fitted with active strategic thermonuclear warheads next goes to the dentist and is put under could somebody insert a computer to brain implant into him? He would never know. Would an Intel Handler at R.A.F Northwood, Pine Gap in Australia, The Pentagon or GCHQ know? Were Intel handlers at any of these Security Installations checked for a developed Computer 2 Brain Technology in the last 24 hours, 48 hours, last week, last month, last year? Ever? Is there a Research Group carrying out Brain 2 Computer Technology Development who has access to Security Facilities?


The Brain 2 Computer Technology cannot and must not be allowed to be developed ad-hoc. Governments must ensure they know who is developing it and where and at what stage the development is at.

Personally I believe it all to be a waste of time and money. It has no benefit to mankind. Its only use is control and intrusion. But regardless of my opinion as to its real benefits to the progress of mankind the Security Implications are not merely an opinion. They are dangerously very real.

Brain 2 Computer Technology transmits visual, audio and mind information in binary form it can be accessed by anybody before it gets to the receiver . A bit like Wi-Fi is hacked into. Who has it fitted. Do you?

Experts-warn-growing-threat-monitoring-controlling-neural-signals.html


Warning: My urgent and immediate advice to those in Government, the Senior Military and the CIA/MI5/6 is to immediately audit and verify all research and all personnel in all fields of the Sciences and Behavioural Research who are or may be involved in Brain 2 Computer Research. This is necessary in order to account for the propagation and development of brain to computer technology. I believe this to be of the highest priority in order to maintain National & Global Security of those Nations with have nuclear and chemical weapons.


This is the summary of concerns listed in Wikipedia of Brain to Computer Interface.

Ethical considerations
Important ethical, legal and societal issues related to brain-computer interfacing are:
Obtaining informed consent from people who have difficulty communicating,
risk/benefit analysis.
Shared responsibility of BCI teams (e.g. how to ensure that responsible group decisions can be made).
The consequences of BCI technology for the quality of life of patients and their families.
Side-effects (e.g. neurofeedback of sensorimotor rhythm training is reported to affect sleep quality).
Personal responsibility and its possible constraints (e.g. who is responsible for erroneous actions with a neuroprosthesis).
Issues concerning personality and personhood and its possible alteration.
Blurring of the division between human and machine..
questions of research ethics that arise when progressing from animal experimentation to application in human subjects.
Selective enhancement and social stratification.


These are my own concerns:

Mind-reading and privacy in Government, Business, Banking and Military.
Mind-control by allowing Terror Groups or Criminal Groups to Control and Direct.
Use of the technology in advanced interrogation techniques by governmental authorities,
Control of all Communication to and from the media.
Memory Loss and the development of only ‘controlled memory’ as the end of Free Thought.
Organic Development by insertion of bio engineered control system to allow complete control of brain electron circuits.
A new form of human physics which transforms mind motor neuron control to manmade body components whilst retaining the human form for structure.
Replacement of key individuals in Government and Military with Human Robot Controlled Humanoids.
The Eventual Replacement of Mankind as ‘Free Thought’ in order to save it from its own destruction by a Power Elite who seek their own Survival and Destiny through Total Control.
Total Power controls absolutely and must control all that is capable of Free Thought if it is to survive.


Summary.

Time and events will prove if my warning was right or wrong. However, can we as People allow a Brain 2 Technology be developed which ‘Creates mankind in the image of whoever controls the Technology’? I describe Brain 2 Computer Technology as a virus. Its rate of development is now exponential, it’s fitting to minds is unrestricted, its potential for control by a Group or Power who do not want democracy is only restricted by the amount they want to pay for its developed use. The danger of Brain to Computer Technology to the future of mankind can be measured in the megatons of TNT per metric ton of nuclear weapons.

What should be our greatest concern is that our Governments and their Security Agencies seem to be unaware of the dangers of a rapidly developing technology which has the real potential to access any mind anywhere at anytime. From the Nuclear Command systems of a submarine with nuclear weapons to the cockpit of a B52 Bomber armed with nuclear weapons Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to access every mind everywhere.

Does anybody care?

U.N. scientists report world has barely ten years before climate disaster. Does this worry anyone besides me?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

I do not worry but I care. Why worry about the inevitable. We are governed by Governments who live to be re-elected. We no longer have economies we have corporate investment funds. Our Politicians cannot act without considering the opinion of big business. Big Business buys votes and expects to be able to steer Government Policy.

That was how it will continue to be until ‘OMG’ Day. That is the day the collective business light bulb is switched on. On that day torrential rain will flood coal mines, it will flood roads from Petroleum Reserves, it will cut power to businesses and it will make millions homeless. They will not be able to work and will have no money.

Meanwhile on OMG Day in another part of the World a whole City will be burned to the ground by an out of control bush fire and a whole Island will disappear forever beneath a raging tsunami.

Unlikely – No. It will happen. Then and only then when it is too late will Governments and Corporate Business want to do something immediately positive about Climate Change.

Ask the whistle blowers which Governments are preparing for the widespread civil unrest of Climate Change?

Also ask them where the secret bunkers are that will house the chosen few whilst the rest of us have to endure a relentless extreme Climate.

Then there is the Trojan Horse of Climate Change. I have warned the U.S Government about it but of course who am I – nobody. Somewhere in the World right now are an anti-democracy group who will use Climate Change to dominant whole communities and countries. They also believe the World is over-populated so Climate Change and missing nuclear weapons are a positive for them. Time will tell if I am correct.

We can all agree man-made or not our Climate is becoming more extreme.

Does loneliness affect peace and happiness?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

‘Know who you are then you can be who you are’.

Absolutely. Until you are able to provide yourself with the Powers of Observation necessary to assess the World around you objectively with subjective Parameters then you will not achieve Peace and true happiness.

We can all laugh at a joke or smile at a welcoming comment but how many of us are happy with our lot in life?

In order to be so you be able to stand alone in a crowd and be able to observe those around you with an inquiring mind and not need their emotions to enliven your own. Loneliness is a terrible state of mind which can lead to depression, addictions and finally suicide. It is a state of mind that is like a swamp which devours all it encounters.

It takes an act of conscience will to move yourself out of the cauldron of mankind and into the vast choice of humanity. But by doing so you will find a world of enlightenment which will see you never alone.

That means you must absorb all that is around you and not let those who seek to block you out from the world feed off your emotional state.

So if you are lonely then begin tomorrow by observing the World around you and assessing your own needs and wants against that which it has to offer you not that which it has to take away from you. Being lonely is a state of mind. There is always somebody who will talk to you.

It is not somebody you need it is something to be part of that does not remove all your emotional well-being you require.

Observing the World around you is the first step towards creating your own World and one in which you are part of. Trying to be part of a World as complex as ours now is without an anchor for your reality is loneliness.

‘Know who you are then you can be who you are’.
