Actuality: Gates and windows

QUESTION POSTED BY ALIEFF FARWELL

The universe is made up of multiple levels and the power flow in any given star system creates a constant exchange throughout the whole. This exchange also feeds into the rest of the galaxy at various points.

The “new” technology of Ethernet and microwave transmissions, radio, television, etc., is opening gates to everywhere in an indiscriminate manner. Is anyone following the possible downside to all this? Can anyone follow it? Has anyone else noticed the increase in social violence and so-called paranormal manifestations of the darker kind that has come with this technology? Do any of you leave your front or back doors unlocked when you are in bed or away?

My question is:                                                                                                                                Does earth have the scientific understanding to use this technology safely?

Post your answer by comment…and remember to send your question.                                The Qbox is made of YOU!!..Thank you

    Like your blog!
    I expect earth has her own arsenal – but do people understand that? I wonder if our electromagnetic activity is not being hurled back at us in some manner. I don’t think we understand this, this is like the industrial revolution and instead of coal, we are inventing a billion poisons.

    Also – people are musing about chemicals affecting behaviour.( perhaps triggering violence )

    I have noticed an increase in violence in the news with the release of new movies – and even if you think that’s uptight, there are studies backing this up, and I study film and media and have noticed a direct correlation. Even the hero archetype, the villain, the antihero ( with weapons ) is messing this up for us.

    I also know from my work it is a global consciousness that many people share. One angry person can cause 1 billion angry souls to follow.

    I keep trying to get through…knock knock…:)

    There is a stronger feeling of energy in urban areas than rural. 3D safety is more complicated, but still the same.

    Technology does not provoke violence or crime. It is the misuse of technology that does that. Levels of violence have risen because the human population has more than doubled during the past fifty years. Not only are there more people to become violent, but as our numbers grow we have more to fight for. Cows won’t fight each other if there is enough grass on the field to feed them all. Moreover, we hear about the crime much more often thanks to media and other forms of information exchange becoming faster every year, and you could argue that they create a vicious circle for bad behavior but, again, that is caused by misuse not technology. If we go around the block shooting plasma or X-rays at people, then yes we will cause harm. We need to learn how to use technology intelligently.

    As for the gates, windows and paranormal manifestations of darker nature…. Well, if by that you mean, what I think you do, then the last time I saw a demon creeping out if the telly was about 15 years ago in some silly children’s film and I did not notice the frequency of such occurrences to rise. But if there have indeed been scientific studies in the subject then I am all ears.

    No, I never leave doors unlocked, but neither would I do that if I lived in the Middle Ages. In fact I would be more keen to do it now, since in the 21st century we have the glorious institution of insurance policies at our disposal.

    In one sense all our technology offers us more of a “one world” experience but at the same time I feel people are losing their ability to interact on a one-to-one basis–hiding behind our computers and cell phones does create a feeling of isolation at times. What does this do to our young people? Im talking psychologically/emotionally.
    As for other forms of technology–the ability to create weather patterns, clone humans, etc… No, I don’t believe we are ready (on an evolutionary scale) to deal with the consequences.
    And yes, I keep my doors locked. Always.

    Interesting question. A long time ago I took a philosophy class by accident that was all about technology. I thought I would hate it but I loved it because the whole class was about critically thinking about the adaptation of all technology. Since then I don’t jump on a band wagon without consideration to all the effects adopting said technology will have. I do my best to try to remain aware of all impacts as I incorporate new technologies. My recent upgrade from a flip cellphone to an Iphone, becoming a blogger, and joining Facebook are all recently adopted technologies impacting me. I find it interesting how after time, it seems unthinkable to go without. However once in a blue moon, due to a power outage, or by choice, I live without these technologies, and realize life without them, does go on.

    And to be honest I never lock my door. I know I am a rarity. The way I figure it is if someone is so intent on getting into my house that they are not detered by my three dogs, especially my large German Shepard, then a lock is not going to stop them. My nearest neighbors are over half a mile away, my home is not visible to anyone. Anyone belt on trouble will break a window, and I’ll have to fix that as well as replace everything they have stolen.

    • Demosthenes says:

      A very good point there about considering the effects of adopting technology. Very few people do that since they naturally focus on the benefits of a new cellphone or a faster car and they should not be blamed! You do not even need to look around to be bombarded by ads which are designed not just to make you want and need a product, but also to make you believe it only carries great advantages and benefits for your lifestyle without negative impact. You do realize that it is not the case, but you dismiss it anyway, because everyone does. People need to learn critical thinking more than any other subject, but on the other hand they should not need to do that. Technology should be developed and applied, from the very base, in a way that brings the most benefits to people while creating as little negative environmental, health or social impact as possible instead of creating financial profit.

  6. 1kaur says:

    First I need clarification: does the questioner with the delightful metaphor on Gates and Windows (which has not been sufficiently alluded to yet, and yet you may regret I said it) mean- does Earth, i.e. our planet in itself as an organism …”have the scientific understanding…”, or is the meaning less literal as in the people of earth, society in general “…have the scientific understanding…”? If we are talking about astrological bodies having intelligence then this is a different discussion entirely, and an interesting window to look through it might be.

    Second, I agree “technology should be developed and applied, from the very base, in a way that brings the most benefits to people while creating as little negative environmental, health or social impact as possible instead of creating financial profit” but this is also rather optimistic to throw our friend Gates’ profit out the window (or god forgive me, Gates’ Windows profits!) or at least very very far back in the queue. Oh, to live in a world such as that.

    Thirdly, and now I must make preface that I am talking about the people of earth, which is what many here are pointing to, is the need for a larger debate about ethics. Have we answered the necessary ethical questions about the safe use of technology? We would have to define safe. What non-monetary costs are we willing to accept? How far into the future do we have to project in our definition of safe? By many standards nuclear energy is extremely safe, today. However, the impact of all those canisters of nuclear waste and who finds them and where they are stored and if they leak…. are all considerations for the more distant future. I believe it more ethical to consider a long look at the future.

    I certainly think that technological developments are moving at a pace that does not include a “wait a minute, did we think about what will happen if someone uses it this way…?” question. Are we willing to wait for those questions to be answered and furthermore, who will be included in the discussion? Who will be the gatekeepers, so to speak? Hmm I think I went too far there, but no harm done…

    It’s looking like, with the length of my response, my answer is no. We do not have the ethical guides to proceed at our current pace. My hope is that there are enough peace lovers and Demosthenes like ethicists out there to paranomically pick up the pieces of those whose psyches have been shattered by the impatience of progress and lead the way to a more enlightened approach.Or, we can just pray that our dear Earth has a better sense of ethics than we do.

    • Demosthenes says:

      You left me terrified for sounding like an ethicist. To me “ethics” are an empty word carrying very little meaning. Subjectively accepted concepts of right and wrong have nothing to do with the real world – no matter how strongly and how many people believe the Earth is flat – it does not make it so, but science, on the other hand, can determine that it is round. If you want to find out whether nuclear energy is safe, please do not use ethics! Use science – it will give you a specific number at the end of your “safety equation” instead of a vague idea that follows ethical discussions.

      Also, it is not a lack of proper ethical guides that make our future so uncertain but lack of information. People are not educated (by education I mean scientific knowledge, not morals) enough to understand how the world goes round, interacts and how we relate to our environment.

      Yes, these ideas are optimistic, because its optimism that has any power for positive change. If 5000 years ago, all that our ancestors did was cry about their miserable lives, we would still be living the the very same cave.

      • 1kaur says:

        I had no idea that the term ethicist might come off as an affront, my apologies. However, I think you are pointing to the basics of ethical debate- public good vs. private good in your earlier post and the posts of others. The public goods here are clean air, a healthy environment, etc, but also energy. The private good is money, assuming a private company profits from the provision of energy. I don’t believe that these questions should be debated only in ivory towers or congressional buildings. These are not rhetorical questions for the few or the elite to decide. Quite the contrary, I believe there should be lively public debate and the inclusion of general citizens in discussions that will impact the development and use of technology. Furthermore, the discussion should include science, writ large. But science alone will not determine the “goodness” of a technology. In fact, I think that has been the problem thus far. Science may determine how many people will be killed in a nuclear energy disaster. Ethical discussions would decide how many deaths we are willing to accept as a risk. These ethical issues should be integrated in to the very fabric of developing technology, which I thought was what you actually suggested earlier. A proper debate about nuclear energy would include both the science of how to dispose of nuclear waste, and its dangers, as well as what public goods are produced and what public goods we are willing to sacrifice and for how long are we willing to risk their destruction. It is the very stuff of critical thinking.
        “An even more significant ethical issue is the distribution of harm. One must ask if some communities or regions will be (or are more likely to be) harmed (or threatened with harm)? Ethical systems will answer this question differently: Is it ok to harm some in order that a greater good is produced? Whose greater good? As a corollary, we must also ask about the distribution of benefits. We also generally question the fairness of a situation where someone benefits from another person being harmed.”-Social and Ethical Considerations of Nuclear Power Development
        I conclude that nuclear energy and technology more generally are topics loaded with ethical and scientific considerations. I may be optimistic that we can all agree on the answers to the ethical questions, but I certainly don’t think the debate nor how we proceed with our resolutions are empty at all.

    • Demosthenes says:

      Oh you do not need to apologize, that was no affront but a realization that next time I will need to rephrase not to seem like an ethicist. 🙂 Well, anyway call it what you wish, its just an empty word. 😀

      Public good and private good (although I would rather say benefits, or needs since good is often too subjective) are the very same thing: clean air, healthy lifestyle, energy etc. Money does not bring any real benefits. You cannot eat it nor can you build a house with it. It’s an abstract, now more than ever since all that is in the physical world are electric charges in bank computers.

      Public debates are great as long as no decisions are made based on human opinion. If you want to make a decision that will benefit the individual as well as the society, and in which everyone’s “good” will be considered, it HAS TO be based on scientific knowledge, not some hocus-pocus ethics.

    Thought provoking!

  8. Thankyou for helping out, wonderful info .

  9. What we follow, is what we serve. How can science ever solve anything? Science is but the means to an end; it cannot grant us the totality of existence, and it never has been able to do so. To put our trust in science would be to cut off the core of our being, while trying to explain spiritual phenomenon. These are gross contradictions of life. Science is a great and studious thing, yet it is not the source of all things, it is merely a schoolmaster, a tutor, that pointedly explains shadows and types of what is to come beyond us. For we all possess eternity within our hearts. What we serve is our own decision, a life or death decision indefinitely.

  10. I personally think the reasons behind the phenomena you noticed are these:

    We are all connected, and the amount of suffering and hopelessness of more and more of the consciousness we all contribute to dramatically increases with each day. Just because the bombs are invisible and they are thrown not in batches but one by one in isolation, this is a war, a silent world-war through political and media lies, through uncovered international treaties and illegitimate political bodies, through skipped referenda, miseducation, and through the deepening recession (stagflation) as a result of the unregulated form of global capitalism, and the consequent withdrawal of billions of dollars each day from the production sphere.

    We all feel it in our bones and sense the manifestations of these in reality. We are the generation of frustration, hopelessness, helplessness and anger -angered by the lack of opportunities under the frozen new world order, by the increasing confusion and daily conflicts in a globalised yet ruled-and-divided world, by the cynical mass media that blatantly lie into our face, by the world politics building a global capitalist empire over our heads which will keep deepening the recession and gearing our future towards giant-size global monopolies, which will provide less and less jobs; by science and technology which – while chasing the ultimate non-divisible subatomic particles – couldn’t care less solving our real human problems, and all these factors leaving the younger generations helpless and powerless to shape our future.
