Progress and Poverty

When you study emergence…your only choice is through a rear view mirror–where things are “closer than they appear!”

“I just received the following note from one of our Inner Circle members.  Below the note is my response.”

Has anyone followed the work of Catherine Austin Fitts? This video is one of the most informing pieces I’ve seen to explain the roots of our economic condition, terrorism, and war. It’s really worth the time to watch. She has very high credibility and does not mince words.

At the Secret Space Program Conference held in June 2014, in San Mateo California, Catherine Austin Fitts lead the talk entitled: “The Black Budget: What Does It Mean to US Federal Budget, the Economy and You,” wherein she asks, “Are financial fraud and market manipulations actually mechanisms for financing the black budget and is centralized governance necessitated by high-tech secrecy?”

There may be as much as $100 trillion dollars worth of hardware flying the skies powered by anti-gravity and field-propulsion technologies. This has significant implications for the ownership and design of manufacturing and energy infrastructure on planet Earth. It also has connections to trillions of dollars which are “missing” from defense and domestic agency accounts (as reported by official financial reports of the US government).

To the extent that the US taxpayer has financed this technology (or its reverse-engineering) why should private corporations own it on a secret basis?  The financial fortunes and geopolitical power involved are significant. If you control these technologies, you possess weaponry sufficient to engineer a financial coup d’etat and to centralize control of the entire global financial system.




Mike’s response:

I liked the ending quote:

“Don’t worry if there is a conspiracy…if you’re not in a conspiracy, you need to start one!”

I don’t there is any question about this…

Think about your own lives?

Are you doing anything in your life that involves any kind of past coverup or future secret?

It’s “human nature” NOT to be transparent.

The scale on which this is happening is so big that it’s clear it’s mind-boggling…but!

You have to do this in a way that doesn’t alienate the people in the matrix, or they revolt through destabilizing society…so the deft hand that is able to control this is amazing…and it goes back to Adam Smith…?

Smith always talked about ONLY “one hand”….


You know what the other hand is doing!!

History a Catalogue of Patterns and Solutions | Armstrong Economics

It is totally wrong to assume that we have advanced as a society. We have only advanced technologically while human nature remains unchanged. The transition from game hunting to agriculture and stock-raising marks the start of the neolithic period, that is, the late stone age. In 2005, a necropolis around 4,600 years old was found in Eulau near Naumburg (Saxony-Anhalt); there were 12 graves, each of which contained up to four burials. Detailed laboratory analyses showed that all those buried had suffered a violent death. Yet we have families buried together and the bodies were all positioned facing south for some religious or cultural reason. What this illustrates is that human nature has not changed – only technology.

The Meta Model

“I just received the following note from one of our Inner Circle members.  Below the note is my response.”


Just an fyi…



One of the Hottest NLP Techniques

NLP has a ton of extremely powerful strategies and techniques. One particular model is called the ‘The Meta Model’ and was created by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in 1975.

The Meta-model is primarily a tool for discovering where and how to really enrich a person’s model of the world that they hold in their mind, and may be one of the most powerful NLP tools in existence.

This model helps you get past the vague words that people use in everyday language and gets you to what things really mean. The Meta Model is a tool to help you get more direct access to a person’s experience that they code in the words they say.

Whenever you find someone who has a problem or limitation, and you want to dig deeper and really understand how they create it internally, ask the following question:

“How do you manage to [have that problem or challenge]?

When a person takes personal accountability for the current situation, they start to access the resources to change it. By asking this question it presupposes that the problem or challenge is a skill that they’ve developed. How do you get scared of meeting new people? How do you manage to never take action on your dreams? If they see it as a skill then, they also see that they can learn the opposite of that skill.

By studying the structure of something, you have information that can help you begin to change it. If you watch and listen while asking the question, the person will begin to give you indicators as to how they are creating their internal representation of the challenge. They might do things like gesture with their hands or move their eyes in a particular direction. Most people have never thought of their “challenge” as skill prior to this exercise. A simple change in their perspective can give them new and powerful resources in the situation.

If you are facing a challenge you might ask yourself right now: “How do I manage to do that?” and see what comes up for you.

Still @BS

Makes so many assumptions, see talking points @F-L-O-W.

Meta Models get to be because they serve wired-in ends with constructed means/memes.

While means are flexible, ends are much more concrete…even though they mostly unconscious.

This model makes a lot of assumptions that we will do something “logically” even when most meta models are illogical (which his meta modeling relies on as a mechanism).
