NDE, Eben Alexander, tech, Heaven, and virtual reality

 

I see videos like reaction from dfmn on vimeo and cant help but think about how tech will expand our neo-cortex into the cloud.

I think of people such at Eben Alexander who had a near death experience, and reported seeing color and sound, and songs in a heavenly like environment that were beyond what words can accurately describe.

I think of what Eben reported then I look at a video like this and see art created by ever increasing in power tech via computers.

One day we will merge our brains with computers and in light of this future, I wonder if what we are seeing in videos like this may look like somewhat of a rudimentary precursor to what Eben saw during his NDE…

Almost like a DOS operating system from the 70’s looks as compared to our retina displays today.

Technology is chasing out evil two

– What’s up guys? My name is Mark Russell. This is TheSingularity.com. Today is I don’t know, February something or another, February 22nd and I come out and I say it all the time, technology is going to chase out evil and usher in the light of Christ into this world and I think that if we extrapolate that to the furthest potential, it’s going to, at its core, people have a hard time thinking they’re abandon and he said never will I leave you, never I will forsake you and he said I’ll never leave you and technology is going to help us understand that better. I just looked at Ashton Kutcher’s THORN project whereas he’s using technology to catch sexual predators with kids and I think that that’s awesome. I think it’s beautiful. In the same way that a tractor helps us produce more food and beat the curve the time, so in other words it helps us be more efficient in our production of a job which is growing food, technology is helping police balance their caseloads or balance where they’re gonna be most effective in capturing criminals and eventually the technology will be so efficient that not only will eventually we’re not gonna be able to think evil thoughts is the end goal on this. Where Zuckerberg talks about how technology will start integrating with our mind and because Jesus said specifically he said why do you judge by mere appearance, meaning the external, instead why don’t you judge correctly? Specifically he said to the Pharisees, he said why are you trying to kill me and they looked at him and they said we’re not trying to kill you and then the very next thin in that sentence, they went away to start plotting to kill him. Jesus knew the heart behind what they were saying when they were coming against him. It was a murderous heart and technology is getting better and better at measuring sentiment so eventually it will invade our mind and that’s not a bad thing because what it’s gonna do is it’s gonna encourage all of us to think pure thoughts, to think thoughts of what God thinks about us which is God says we’re loved and valuable. God says you’re worth it and any thought to the contrary that says you’re not worth it, what was gonna happen is truth is gonna come in, light is gonna shine and yes it’s gonna make the process of understanding God’s word and his thoughts about us more efficient. We’re gonna understand when we augment our mind, it’s gonna help us to understand his word and his truth and how much he loves us and part of us may rebel and say what are you talking about? We don’t need technology. That’s what the Holy Spirit is for but when you think about it, the Bible itself contains the truth, the spirit of truth that he’s communicated through that Bible, through that word. His thoughts about us. Technology will help us understand that spirit of truth, those words and understand our true worth. Been saying it the whole time, there’s only one logical conclusion to all of this. If you say that technology will usher in evil. No it won’t. God wins. That’s the logical conclusion to it all. God said go and multiply and subdue the earth. It’s a commission on mankind to subdue this earth and he’s going to use us and our technology to accomplish his purpose, his will. He won’t abandon us. As a group, never will I leave you, never will I forsake you. He said pray my, your will Father be done on earth as it is in heaven and that’s what happening. His will is for us to understand clearly that we’re loved and that we’re valuable and he’s using guys like Ashton Kutcher so that and the left or the liberal or the Democrat or whatever might, not Democrat. I don’t mean to use that. The non-Christian is best to say, I apologize. I don’t want to judge people and their political beliefs even though I think that all of the political spectrum, I take that back ’cause that was a misconnection there. The non-Christian might shake their fist and say what are you talking about? How can you say that God’s using technology? You know what? Here’s the deal. They just don’t know who they are yet. They haven’t understood and come to believe who, as non-Christians, how valuable they are yet. But the beautiful thing is? Tech will help show them. Once again I take that Democrat and liberal comment, I rescind that because that was a misconnection in my mind because everyone is loved and valuable. Some people just haven’t seen it yet but technology’s gonna show them. You guys are loved and valuable. That’s the word of the day. All right, God bless you, take care, bye bye.

Technology will help us to see God

What’s up guys? Today’s February 12th, 2017. I’ve been listening to Johnny Cash so I’m a little bit emotional, but here’s the thing. If you pay any attention to Ray Kurzweil and the ideas of artificial intelligence and how the layers of these neural networks are getting deeper and deeper and deeper and deeper and starting to understand more and more and more and the mathematics behind that, you would understand and be excited because you’d understand that these computers eventually the layers of their reasoning and associations of objects are gonna go really deep, and then they’re gonna surpass us, and then we’re going to figure out how to tie our minds into that, so what that means is, lens flare that’s irritating the daylights out of me. What that means is, what it means, here’s why I’m excited. In 30, 40 years, we’re gonna have an explosion, and an explosion, a spiritual explosion, and what’s so exciting is that what, why I’m most excited is because traditionally Christians have felt as if this day of judgment is coming, but the day of judgment’s already here. It’s here because look at the world. They’re trembling, they’re in fear. They fight one another. One party says, “You’re horrible,” the other party says, “No, you’re horrible,” and they don’t realize that the measure they use gets used against ’em, and one of these days we’re gonna connect and we’re gonna understand hey, we’re all broken in the flesh, but we’re made beautiful in who we are. Each one is unique. Each one is gifted. Each one has got something good to give to the community, okay, and what’s, and Jesus said, “Why don’t you judge,” “You judge my outward appearance.” “Instead, why don’t you judge correctly?” And so, here’s what’s coming. What’s coming, God said, “Go and subdue the earth.” We’re part of the earth, right, and so we’re gonna actually subdue ourselves. We’re gonna build technology that will integrate with our brain in a good way. It’s not a scary thing at all. What’s exciting about it is that in the same way that like, Ray Kurzweil gave a great example, is like, here’s the difference that it’s gonna make. If we would have gone back to cavemen and said, “Hey, what will make your life more awesome?” And they would be like, “Well, you know, maybe,” “maybe if I could gather a little bit more firewood” “or a little easier, or you know,” “maybe if I could hune out a big baton or something” “to beat some animals and kill some animals,” and we’re thinking, “Wait, we’ve got all this technology.” “Wouldn’t you like an app,” “Or wouldn’t you like something?” And they’re like, “A what?” It’s gonna be so, we can’t even understand the things that our minds when we enter into computers and when computers enter into our minds, the creativity, the connectivity, the shame is going away. There’s not gonna be shame, no more tears, no more eyes crying, God’s will done on earth. He prayed, I pray that you will be one, even as my heavenly father and I are one, and I pray that you will be one with us as we are one, and that’s what’s coming. When we are, technology does one thing, what it does is it speeds things up. It makes the work easier. Like right now, I’m able to communicate this message to multiple people, whereas before, if anybody even watches this video, whereas before, you know, you would have to write it down on paper and send a letter, right? Now, this, our words go across, a farmer used to put a seed in the ground, dot dot dot dot dot. Now we’ve got machines and feed millions of people. Technology compresses time, so what’s gonna happen is when these computers enter into our brain and our brains enter into computers, and that melds together, it compresses the time of communication. It breaks down privacy, and what we’re gonna see is that the arguing’s gonna go away because when you know me and I know you, I’ve got one word for you, and that is that you’re loved and valuable, and that word is gonna stand. Jesus’ word is gonna stand. Those who operate by faith and future and hope and life over their brother instead of condemnation, that word stands, because a word of hope stands. A word of condemnation and derailing and deriding our brothers, that’s a false word, because God speaks that we’re loved, we’re valuable, inertly, inherently. We kind of know this. We try to kind of fight for our right, but Christians know, hey, God is the one who actually calls us loved and valuable. Here’s the thing, guys. I was gonna say that I’m not gonna do any technology stuff for a while, but you know, I’m sitting here listening to Johnny Cash and just listening to, oh man, he’s so sentimental and he’s so, he’s just, his songs are so neat because Johnny Cash, man, he had his time, man. He was like a flower in the field, and then it all, it all tapered off, but he still knew God and loved God and he sings about it, and it’s really cool to see his work, and me right now, I put those videos up specifically because I see what’s coming. That’s coming, man. Shame is going away. Shame is going away, and the enemy is gonna lose his grip on us through technology. Shame, secrets, and hurt is going away. The bully is getting chased out. You’re loved and valuable, man. It’s coming 40 years, and we’re gonna be thinking to each other. It’s gonna be a good day. Man, God, but you get all the glory, okay. Jesus Christ is praised. Take care.

Creating Human-Level AI: How and When From Ray Kurzweil

I really appreciate Ray.

He has a great hand hold on where we are heading.

Great answer from Ray Kurzweil

I do appreciate Ray Kurzweil and his thoughts on the future.

Fractals, Mandelbrot Zooms, and Christ

I love looking at fractals.  You see the same pattern zoomed out or in.  I see this with Christ too.   He is the saviour of all, and of one.  Loves all, yet loves one.  Bridges the gap for all, and for one.
I love seeing patterns of God.  Line upon line, precept upon precept.

 

Flood of data washing away sinners

– What’s up, guys? Today is February something or another, and today is Superbowl Sunday. On halftime during the Superbowl I was thinking about God and his second coming and about data, and I’ve always thought in Revelation how it talks about the angel that sat beside the water, and then it says the water that he sat beside, were every tribe tongue, the language of nation or something like that, and I’ve always thought water represented, in the Bible, the people, right? Words: what are people and languages made of? Words. And that’s what we’re made of. We’re made up of words and precept upon precept as we learn and understand different things, and then it just struck me regarding Jesus’s little thingy that he talked about in Matthew 23. He said that God made the covenant with a rainbow, that he would never flood us physically, but then it also says that the nature of things is first in the physical, then in the spiritual. I’ve always thought, I’ve looked at data streaming, data streams, pools of data, an ocean of data, and that’s a little bit of wordplay type thing, which I get it. It’s kind of a little bit farfetched, but here’s what’s really interesting to me is that the pattern that we see of faith and the pattern that we see of Noah stepping out in faith and also, for that matter, with Noah taking an arc that rises above the words, right, and above the ocean, and by faith he transcended above that tumultuousness and I see that pattern of the righteous rising above the words, maybe something like that. Anyway, in Matthew 23, it said the flood came, and it took them all away. They knew nothing. In the same way as it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the son of man. Men will be married and giving in marriage, eating, drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, and the flood came and took them all away, and it says they knew nothing of it. Here’s the interesting thing, guys. I’ve posted a lot on here talking about how data and technology is whittling out evil, right? If it’s whittling out evil, then, with all of the cameras and all of the measurement, it’s bringing hypocritical. The ability to act hypocritically, it’s getting rid of that so that you’re gonna be the same on the outside as you are on the inside, and ultimately what we’re looking at is what if the measuring is taking away the evil person in the same respect that it says that I was talking about earlier, in the same respect of, hey, you can’t get away with doing as many crimes as you could previously. Well, what if the people who do the crimes is like you, your bad side, and, with the measurements you tend to do less crime, so that bad you is getting washed away in the data, is getting washed away in the words and the technology and the measurement? I don’t know. I just can see this thing of data pouring down on us and washing away the bad, and the bad side of us, the flesh side of us is nah, no, and, in fact, it says things have always, it’s in Peter, said, “Since the days of John the Baptist are,” no, “Until now,” or no. There’s a verse that says things have always gone on the way that they always have. Anyway, that’s a rabbit trail, but the whole point is is this: the entities that we’re taking about that get washed away, in traditional Christianity, I’ve always seen those entities felt it, heard it preached, that those entities were gonna be this really godless people and you would really get to see them get washed away, and I don’t think that’s right, man. I think that, by virtue of the measurement, by virtue of technology coming along and helping us to be less hypocritical that that godless person almost evaporates, is a better word. It almost just goes away like the sun scorches the plant. It just turns to dust and goes. It’s gone, because it can’t stand in the heat, in the truth. The word is, the true word that God speaks over you is, that you’re loved and valuable, and that word is gonna stand now and eternally. I hope that you can call out to Christ. I hope that you can call out to our maker and recognize that he makes you and that he has got a good gift for you, and that gift is that he says that, in him, you’re loved, you’re valuable, you’re precious, that there’s no judgment in him, that he came to redeem you, and I think that that message is going to proliferate through the hive mind of humanity, and we’re gonna know him in a new way very soon. You’re loved and valuable. You’re a precious treasure. Take it easy, bye.

Good Song

I really like this song.   A lot.

 

 

 

The measure we use gets used against us

– So, what’s up guys, today is Tuesday, January 17th. This is a little bit of a continuation of another blog post regarding identify, and you know, I’m just thinking about name calling. And I just, the measure we use gets used against us, and sometimes that’s difficult to, it’s difficult to believe when Jesus says “Hey, the measure you use “will get to use to you.” And so, you know, if you call someone an idiot, what does that, does that make you an idiot? Jesus said if you lust after her in your heart, you’ve already committed adultery. He taught that things that happen in the spirit, in your mind, in your heart, were just as important, and that unseeable thing essentially classified or created, I wanna be careful about using that word, but the point is he was trying to illustrate that there is another realm that means as much or more eternally as what we see here in the external. And I just see people online a lot. I was just on this website, and just saw people saying, “Oh, that guy’s an idiot.” And when you look at the connection of using the word is, it’s combining the entity of the person, is idiot. So it’s combining those two attributes or those two identifiers to create birth, really, to birth a new entity. So idiot plus guy equals idiot guy would be like the math of it. And the problem is is that that’s not what God calls that guys. And so if that’s not what God calls that guy, then we are apart from the vine, the branch is apart from the vine if we speak that curse over that person. And so because off of whose authority do we identify the object? And I know this sounds a little weird, but this is really the math behind this verse of the measure you use gets used against you, because God speaks a blessing over everybody. And if you believe that blessing and you choose to walk in that blessing, then you enter his presence, but if you choose to reject that blessing over your life or over other people’s lives, then you step out from his presence. So where does that leave us in that place where we choose to speak a curse over someone? We’re not basking in his light, we’re not having fellowship with him. We’re separated from him. And so, taking this, I believe the computers will see this, which is a very stretch of a jump, but, I mean, if you follow my blog and all, I think that computers and artificial intelligence eventually will be able to calculate the upper tiers of these nuanced, subtle, logic connections, where it won’t just see, say like, OK, square box. You see a box and you say it’s square or rectangle. These type of attributes to objects are very low level, and then you get into higher level like, you know, humor or irony, and then even higher than that in my opinion is starting to interpret things of the spirit. Because it has to be really higher level when God says, “Hey, if you’ve committed adultery “in your heart, you’ve already done it, “you’ve already sinned.” And that’s, you can’t see that. So you have to, it’s all about an understanding in the spirit, and I think computers will get us there one day. And I personally think that computers will finally help us realize just how loved and valuable we are. You’re not an idiot, but I think somehow perhaps we take on that identify if we choose to leave God’s presence and speak that over someone’s life. My choice is to believe that he speaks to me as loved and valuable as his precious treasure, and when I receive that from the father, I can speak it over you and say you are loved and valuable. It’s apart from what you do, it hasn’t, you cannot measure it, you can’t see any of the achievements that you’ve done or haven’t done, don’t make you greater or less. It’s all from the unseen. The Mount Zion in the spirit mountain that cannot be shaken. You’re loved and valuable, that’s the thought for today. Alright, take it easy, bye.

Swearing, God’s name, identity, the singularity, and artificial intelligence

– What’s up guys this is Mark with thesingularity.com coming to you, today is January 14th, I thought I was going to do one everyday, but pop that New Years resolution hit the skids at about January 5th. But it’s a nice day, oops, there’s Christian turning the starter on the skid steer the wrong way. While he’s trying to turn it off. So today here is the thought. Identity, identity, have you ever thought about God taking His name in vain? He said I am that I am and when the devil came to tempt Jesus it was if You are the Son of God, if You are, if You are. And you know when people strive in this world, they strive to prove themselves, right? And so with computers, I feel like some people don’t always think about the idea but when computers fully understand the Bible, they’re going to be able to understand the idea that God makes us new creations. So they’ll be able to, this sounds weird, but calculate like if we can renew our minds, why couldn’t a computer be able to include the idea of faith and the thoughts of God inside it? So if it could, then when it identified us, what if it could identify us with hope and a future? So that’s really neat because you know at the end of the day my actions in this world definitely testify to non-valuable right, because the flesh is terminal. You know the flesh has definite, it’s ending. But God says I give you a hope and a future, you’re a new creation, you are in the Spirit, non-corrupted. And so the thought here is what if when computers get sufficient and see here’s the thing I’m telling you the more I think about this idea… Oh hammocks bumping, check this out. I created my hammock to I like started a rope off the top of that tree and then I strung it between a two by four so that’s why my hammock spins and rocks at the same time. So anyway, it’s just the idea that look if God says to renew our minds, and we can renew our minds so that we think in terms of faith, so that we think what He says, we are new creations. But wait my flesh says I do bad or I do good and it’s obvious that we are made new in Him in the future, not in the past, not in the present, but in the future. That’s our hope, who hopes for something that they don’t have and so He calls us loved and valuable maybe in the present, maybe I can’t step past that, but for sure not in the past, we can’t look to the past. So Jesus said, and here’s the clincher, okay, there they are out in the desert, or here they are in the inner room, do not go with them. He said many will come saying I am the Christ, now have you ever thought about this? When Jesus says many will come saying I am the Christ, He’s not saying that they’re going to say that they are the Christ, He’s saying that they’re going to say that He is the Christ and then they’re going to say there He is out in the desert, here He is in the inner room. But do you see what that does? It delineates desert from here or delineates and separates inner room from here. The point is He is all and He is in all and there is no delineation because to say He’s at one place or the other is like kind of an outward appearance and that’s the flesh. Because He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever. And the idea of there He is, is this idea of time and space. Time and space and so the problem with trying to identify oh Jesus is with the baptists, or the Savior is with this sect or that sect, no, no that’s the problem. And even when you think about this, let your yes be yes and your no be no because all else is from the evil one. So when we conclude when we swear, Jesus’s own brother said do not swear, above all else. And to swear is to operate by our own authority and say it is, I swear, I conclude the argument. No mix it with faith, let that doubt mix with faith continually so that we’re never concluding the argument why? Because if we conclude then it’s past and that’s a bad place to be ’cause God is always moving, He’s always got something new okay. Not to swear, let your yes be yes, say I believe, I believe yes, but I can’t prove. Can I prove that I’m a precious treasure? No but I believe it and I believe that you are too. Okay and one last thing, oh, I was going to mention the I Am, His name. See when we take His name in vain is to swear. So like if we say I swear this is, we’re really referencing by the authority vested in us. When we say this is, something like if I say that is a tree, you know what, that is no more a tree that anything in 10,000 years. So how can I say that’s a tree? How do I say this is a hammock? This is nothing but dust and then maybe some of the dust becomes a star so how can I swear to anything. I believe it’s a hammock, I believe that’s my shed, but I won’t swear. But I will believe is that you’re valuable, you’re loved, and He makes you new and I think computers are going to get this point. They’re going to get faith in the future and they’ll be able to calculate because when you really break it down, the problem with all of the arguments is they use God’s name in vain in the sense that they say I am, I have the authority vested in me to declare the identity of something else, somewhere and I conclude they’re a jerk, or that guy’s awesome. No God says we’re all loved and valuable, we’re equal because of His glory. You are loved and valuable, precious treasure, that’s what I’m going to believe for you in your future because Jesus Christ died on the cross for you and He loves you. This is Mark Russell with The Singularity signing off. God bless you guys, bye.
