The ‘Human’ Hundredth Monkey Effect Explained | Critical Mass, The Shift And What It Could Look Like

Sharing truth and compassion may catapult us into a new era of human-conscious development.

Because I think it’s incredibly important to assess and reassess who we are and what we are capable of, I’d like to bring attention to this post that was created over 6 years ago. In it, it details an incredible study (that wasn’t even the focal point of the study…) that occurred in the 1950’s.

Granted, the study happened in monkeys, but it is still an amazing insight into what’s possible using a sort of collective mind, a consciousness that lifeforms may be able to tap into in order to grow and develop for widespread benefit and harmonious synergy.

What would be better for humankind? To remain in a state of chaos and panic, division and hostility? Or to finally realize that we are all connected and we learn to love and understand one another instead?

If it’s true that there is a common kindredship between all of us, and I do believe there is, then eventually a conscious awakening is the inevitable step forward for our evolution.

While the below example simply involves washing potatoes to introduce a better way of living (and even then, this harmless act was still resisted by some in their communities…), the pursuit by many people to find the truth, the meaning of life, a more joyful and compassionate experience in the world – will spread and affect others to want to pursue the same enlightenment.

And while again, there may be some who will resist, that will be their choice – and they will have chosen to remain in the same bleak creation that they refuse to leave; while others will have moved on to create a new, more benevolent, honorable world while simultaneously phasing out the “old way”.

The 100th Monkey Effect is probably one of the most cited phenomenons in the awakening community, yet it is also greatly misunderstood.

Many contend that this effect is proof positive of an instantaneous and automatic ascension or awakening of all people will take place in the near future. A type of ‘tsunami’ of awakening will sweep the planet, forcing everyone to be more loving, honest and fair. But is this really true?

The 100th Monkey Effect

As the below article details, the 100th monkey effect is an accidental discovery by a team of researchers in the mid 1960’s. The team was studying the Japanese Macaca monkey that was provided sweet potatoes from the team that they enjoyed eating.

Here is an excerpt from the accounting below:

“In 1952, on the island of Koshima, scientists were providing monkeys with sweet potatoes dropped in the sand. The monkeys liked the taste of the raw sweet potatoes, but they found the dirt unpleasant.

“An 18-month-old female named Imo found she could solve the problem by washing the potatoes in a nearby stream. She taught this trick to her mother. Her playmates also learned this new way and they taught their mothers too.

“This cultural innovation was gradually picked up by various monkeys before the eyes of the scientists.

“Between 1952 and 1958 all the young monkeys learned to wash the sandy sweet potatoes to make them more palatable.

Only the adults who imitated their children learned this social improvement. Other adults kept eating the dirty sweet potatoes.

“Then something startling took place. In the autumn of 1958, a certain number of Koshima monkeys were washing sweet potatoes — the exact number is not known.

“Let us suppose that when the sun rose one morning there were 99 monkeys on Koshima Island who had learned to wash their sweet potatoes.

“Let’s further suppose that later that morning, the hundredth monkey learned to wash potatoes.

“Then it happened!

“By that evening almost everyone in the tribe was washing sweet potatoes before eating them.

“The added energy of this hundredth monkey somehow created an ideological breakthrough!

“But notice.

“A most surprising thing observed by these scientists was that the habit of washing sweet potatoes then jumped over the sea 

“Colonies of monkeys on other islands and the mainland troop of monkeys at Takasakiyama began washing their sweet potatoes.

And here is the most revealing passage:

“The new behavior pattern spread to most, but not all, of the monkeys. Older monkeys, in particular, remained steadfast in their established behavior patterns and resisted change. When the new behavior pattern suddenly appeared among monkey troupes on other islands, only a few monkeys on those islands picked up on the new idea. The ones most receptive to new ideas started imitating the new behavior and demonstrating it to the impressionable younger ones. Thus, they too began their own path towards their eventual hundredth monkey effect.”

First the effect was not a complete and total paradigm shift within the monkey population. At best, all that occurred was a transition of awareness; the newer monkeys learned about the washing method, but did not automatically begin washing the potatoes.

Second, the transmission occurred after a sufficient number of monkeys in the host population expressed the washing behavior. It was then that “only a few monkeys on those [new] islands” began washing the potatoes. In other words, it wasn’t enough to simply be aware of this new way, it had to be accepted and expressed in order to ‘build up’ in the host population, which eventually experienced a pandemic awareness of the better way.

Finally, the newly affected monkeys on the surrounding islands “began their own path towards their eventual hundredth monkey effect,” in other words, that the affected population had a time delay between transmission and the majority of monkeys displaying the washing behavior.

All of these points suggest an entrainment or synchronization process, which is a property of waveforms or systems of frequency. The mind and consciousness have long been associated to frequency and rhythmic patterns, and this transmission effect perfectly matches what can be observed in other phenomenon, such as synchronizing metronomes.

Related Entrainment, Communication, Information and Evolution

When two systems of motion come in contact with each other, such that information from one can be transmitted to the other, a slow and steady process of entrainment takes place. Eventually the two different systems synchronize to the point that the motion of one is reflective of the other. One of the better examples of this universal information transmission via frequency and resonance is metronomes.

Synchronizing Metronomes

 

Synchronization occurs in a four-step process and is symbolic of how the same process occurs within the mind.

  • Step 1: Initially, the metronomes are ticking at unique rhythms, unable to be transmitted to the others because no medium or channel is available to provide for the mechanical energy to flow. The swinging of each metronome arm moves from side to side, and is it does so, kinetic energy in the arm pushes against the base of the metronome. But because the devices are on an immoveable surface, this energy cannot be sent to their neighbors and it is absorbed by the table; no transmission can take place.
  • Step 2: The metronomes are placed on a board and moved on top of two cans. Now the motion of the arms has a pathway to travel to the other metronomes, which pushes against the base through the board and on to the other devices. The moment that they are placed together a new system is created with an ideal resonant frequency. This frequency will push against out of step motion and push with instep motion, which slowly alters the behavior of each individual device to match the larger board and metronome system; transmission is beginning to occur.
  • Step 3: The resonant frequency of the board metronome system is initially at a low intensity or ‘volume’, but as each metronome’s behavior is adjusted, they begin to tick in harmony. Eventually the intensity of the resonant frequency overtakes the frequencies of the individual metronomes. At this point the near instant synchronization begins to takes place; transmission is rapidly accelerating.
  • Step 4: The resonant frequency of the board metronome system is now dominant, exponentially working against out of step movements of the individual devices. The inertia of the initial frequencies of each metronome becomes less and less strong, until the whole system dramatically shifts into a synchronized state over a few seconds of time; transmission is fully complete.

Analysis and Integration with the 100th Monkey Effect

In the above example, metronomes were only able to synchronize under certain conditions. A metronome placed on a table that is too rigid, won’t allow for the unique frequency to be transmitted and harmonized with the group. This aspect represents free will, that a metronome can only be changed if it is open to the others. Finally the process took time, it wasn’t until the resonant frequency of the metronome board system reached a strong enough intensity that the ‘quantum leap’ process started.

Similarly, the same type of shift occurred in the Monkeys. For example, the subjects that were the most receptive to the washing behavior were the young monkeys, those able to recognize the advantage of doing so, and that were open minded enough to try the new way. The older monkeys that were more stubborn never learned to wash the potatoes at all. The key principle here is free will, the monkeys were not forced to change but instead had a choice. Finally the process took time, marked by definitive and recognizable hallmarks of progress. Once enough monkey’s made the choice to wash the potatoes, an ‘overnight’ shift took place, and almost all of the monkeys took up the new behavior.

Human ‘100th Monkey Effect’

How does this translate to human consciousness and the infamous paradigm shift spoken of in various circles?

Firstly, the key reason why the metronomes synchronized was because the resonant frequency was ‘better’ then the individual ones. Similarly, the washing behavior was ‘better’ then not washing them. This means that there was a real and bonafide objective improvement that was overriding the older behavior. For the human consciousness shift this translates as truth and practicality, that finding the truth and sharing it with others isn’t just a nice thing to do but it literally improves the quality of life of individuals and groups objectively. This is an essential aspect to consider because the shift in consciousness is objective and practical while also being ideal and subjective. It is a personal choice as well as a scientific process of discovering and finding the better way.

As each individual on the planet discovers the truth and understands it personally, they alter their behavior accordingly so as to embody the wisdom gained. For example, cutting wood with a small axe is less effective than using a large one, and in most cases a person would rather be more efficient then not. Therefore the shift in consciousness is not just a more positive way, it is literally a better way, the marriage of idealism and pragmatism.

Second, this better way can not be forced on to others, free will and the ability to choose is still in effect. This means that as the consciousness shift progresses forward, on average people will most likely embody these more accurate truths and change accordingly; but not everyone.

That being said, the nature of our social fabric is such that many people find value in what the collective is doing. In this sense, when a majority of humanity embodies this newer way it will naturally become more appealing to the minority; but free will choice of each individual is still the determining factor. Additionally, each person is on his or her own unique path towards discovering this better way, and while from our point of view it may seem as if others aren’t evolving fast enough they are still making progress. Even people who reject all forms of truth and hold on to the past are part of the shift taking place, their stubbornness in and of itself is an indication that the newer way is gaining strength and as such it requires more energy to deny. Compassion in these instances is far more helpful then peer pressure.

Finally, not everyone will shift. This is an idea that makes most people uncomfortable, as if some are being left behind. But in truth, since the whole process is founded on free will choice, is this not more honorable? If an individual denies the objective truth of the better ways, then that is their choice and the universe will not force it on to them, but they will continue to labor under the errors of their own making. This is just like the older monkeys chose not to wash the potatoes and suffered the displeasure of eating dirt as a result.

It is these contrasting experiences that help us open our minds to newer ways of being. As such we need not become frustrated at the close-mindedness of others because this is actually an indication they have received the transmission, but simply chose to reject it; a choice we would do well to honor so long as it does not harm others.

Conclusion

At this stage not enough data is available to make any kind of prediction as to how many people will shift. But since the shift is ultimately a personal choice based on knowledge and awareness, we can assist others in their path by sharing what we have come to understand as individuals. This means that the simple act of kindly sharing our truths is the single most important factor to the human 100th monkey effect.

It may be difficult to see the shift occurring, but it undoubtedly is and we need only stay the course of seeking the truth, understanding it and sharing it with others to ensure things progress forward. They may not want to hear it at first, they might fight us and call us crazy, but all these things and more are indications the transmission has been received; we need only honor their choice while taking measures to ensure it does not harm another in the process.

It is my hope that these deep principles of free will and information transmission are understood so as to provide the surety in knowing our work is having an impact.

As More People “Wake Up”, We Have Been Given Warning Signs of What’s to Come – They All Point to One Thing

Whether we’re in the “end days” or not, we need to prepare ourselves and strengthen our faith in God/Jesus Christ.

While many people are questioning the “COVID” agenda and the vaccine narrative, myself being one of them, since it is one of the biggest corruption scandals and crimes against humanity, I also focus on other outlets that we need to be focused on in order to realize our true nature.

Many people may consider these topics as “woo” or “conspiracy theories”. But as we’ve seen the last few years, what is labeled as “conspiracy theories” end up being proven TRUE in the long run. Not every topic, of course, but a fair amount of them, especially when it involves government intrigue. (Which the majority of them do…)

As these last couple of years has shown us, and as more and more people become awake to the many lies that have been fed to us – while digging into biblical proportions (quite literally) found a source of interesting information that seems to be predicting exactly where we’re heading.

I have covered this young gentleman before, but wanted to directly show the many eerie topics he spoke about, compared to what we’re seeing today. The quotes below are from Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov, as told by his mother and translations from Russian to English.

Keep in mind, he passed away in 1993, at the young age of 10, and since then there have been documentaries and books speaking about these events as early as 2006, if not earlier.

“Injected” (marked) people will have more benefits

“Those who have implanted a chip do not stand in queues, are the first to the plane at the airport and come up with other benefits.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

CNN’s Leana Wen: The Unvaccinated Should Not Be Allowed To Leave Their Homes (2021)

“You have the option to not get vaccinated if you want,” said the doctor. “But then you can’t go out in public.”

(This is not to say that the vaccinated have an implanted chip, but only to show where we’re heading in terms of segregation and division if one doesn’t agree to getting injected with foreign substances at the demand of “health”/political reasons.)

“Rapid Response Brigades” to address dissidents

“Vyacheslav said that instead of the army in Russia they will create rapid response brigades. They will “extinguish” any manifestation of human discontent with their rapid appearance.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

A Kremlin youth group says it will field ‘brigades’ to push back against opposition rallies (2018)

“Molodaya Gvardiya” (Youth Guard), a wing of the ruling political party United Russia, says it will create rapid-response “brigades” in the country’s biggest cities and other areas where the party has performed poorly.

Between 100 and 200 activists would comprise these groups, which would be expected to organize public demonstrations within a few hours “on various issues” — mainly with the aim of confronting protests by the anti-Kremlin opposition.”

Spiritualism and occultic/demonic infiltration

“Almost all people will be engaged in spiritualism. People will clearly hear demons and will live on their prompting.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

A Not So Secret Conspiracy: The Occult is Everywhere (2021)

“The occult has infiltrated almost every aspect of society and the culture and most people don’t even realize it. From the highest level of global organizations to your next-door neighbor, almost no one is immune (so to speak) from the effects of the occult, in one form or the other.”

“From the COVID miracle potion, to Bill Gates and leaders of the United Nations who actively engage satanism and Gnostic spirituality, to your next door neighbor Sally who plays with tarot cards while her daughter attends weekly Yoga class, the occult is everywhere. The devil feeds off of all of it.”

Son accused of killing mom says he was possessed by ‘demons and Hitler,’ authorities say (2018)

“Steiss, who repeatedly asked to be locked up, then told police he was “possessed by demons and Hitler,” according to the affidavit.

WANE-TV reported that a source confirmed Steiss suffered from depression and bipolar disorder. The source told the station that Steiss complained of hearing voices in his head, had seizures and a temper.”

Changes being made to the church Creeds

” – when they change the creed”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

“I believe in Pope Francis…”: Bizarre Pseudo-Creed recited at Mexican Parish (2020)

” I believe in Pope Francis as the legitimate Successor of the Apostle Peter. I believe that the Holy Ghost speaks to the Church through him. I believe that he guides the Catholic Church as a true Pastor. I believe that he is diligently concerned with all of humanity, because we are all brothers and sons of God. I believe in his magisterium, which is in perfect harmony with the faith and morals of the Church. I believe that his personal opinions reflect the evangelical attitude of the believers in Christ. I reject all offenses, aspersions, and insults towards his person. As for those who reject his authority, I affirm that they are in ecclesiastical error as much as in error of communion.

We ask all of this of Thee, O Lord, through Jesus Christ Our Lord.”

(While it is to be noted that the original Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed had been recited at its proper place, and the additional creed was spoken at the end, this example still signifies where the churches are heading (complete trust in man…). And we can’t discount other changes that are being made. Take the following for example):

United Methodists Remove ‘Father’ from Apostle’s Creed to Be More Gender Inclusive to God
(2018)

“United Methodists in the Minnesota Conference decided that referring to God as “Father” wasn’t inclusive enough for the 21st century United Methodist Church. At the conference, held May 30 through June 1, conference organizers omitted reference to God the Father. Instead, they changed the phrase “God the Father Almighty” to “God the Creator Almighty.” The creed passed out to attendees also removed the phrase, “Jesus Christ, His only Son” to “Jesus Christ, God’s only Son.”

Some priests will stay true to God

” – some temples will still serve according to the old one. Not all priests will betray God”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

The Viganò Tapes | Dr. Robert Moynihan’s Interview with Archbishop Viganò (2021)

” – not only do the ecclesiastical authorities not condemn in the least the abuse of power by those who govern public affairs, but they support them in this wicked plan and go so far as to condemn those who do not accept being subjected to inoculation with an experimental gene serum with unknown side-effects that does not impart any immunity from the virus – to say nothing of the moral implications related to the presence of genetic material derived from aborted fetuses, which for a Catholic is itself a more-than-sufficient reason to refuse the vaccine.” – Carlo Vigano

TRUE FAITH: Canadian pastor Artur Pawlowski refuses to obey fascist Canada’s gag order, says he’s “prepared to go to prison” (2021)

“Pawlowski was recently ordered by Judge Adam Germain to start preaching Chinese Virus propaganda to his congregation as punishment for previous lockdown violations. Pawlowski was also fined $23,000 and told he would have to serve 18 months of probation for his Fauci Flu “crimes.”

Being a principled man of faith, Pawlowski of course rejected the court’s order that he lie to his flock.”

Ice that doesn’t melt

” – crystals would fall from the sky. They are brought by rockets when they fly from space to the ground. If they fall on a person, then there will be a bunch of ice and blood. But such ice will not melt.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

WHAT HAPPENED WHEN THEY DRILLED INTO AN ICE WALL NEAR THE FIRMAMENT IN THE 60s? (2020)

“The rest of the time, which was most of the time, the scientists were studying something they called “sky ice”.

“And here’s the really weird part. It didn’t melt into water. When it got warm, because we had it inside, it just started to shrink. It got smaller and smaller, but my glove never got wet. And there was no water on the floor, the stuff just turned into thin air when it got warm and vaporized.”

“So I asked my friend where they get the “sky ice” from and he said it comes from “the wall”.

“He said it was the biggest natural structure in the world.”

(While this testimony hasn’t been verified, it does talk about the governmental/national treaties put in place dealing with Antarctica and the secrecy surrounding the projects like Operation Fishbowl and the formation of NASA, to the rockets aimed at… well, “the wall”.)

Stocked underground bunkers while famine/hunger strikes the world

“People will be allowed to live well, but then they will hide the products underground and hunger will begin.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

ELITE UNDERGROUND BUNKERS – Why Are So Many Of The Super Wealthy Preparing Bug Out Locations? World’s largest Underground City (2016)

“It is believed to be large enough to house 60,000 persons, with a special air filtration system designed to withstand a , chemical or biological . Enough food and water is believed to be stored at the site to sustain the entire underground population for months on end”

“A lot of ultra-rich people are quietly preparing to “bug out” when the time comes. They are buying survival properties, they are buying farms in far away countries and they are buying deep underground bunkers. In fact, a prominent insider at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland says that “very powerful people are telling us they’re scared” and he shocked his audience when he revealed that he knows “hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand.”

Two large buildings in America will be blown up

“In America, two large houses will be blown up (the World Trade Center?)”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Lying Mainstream Media Ignore Expert New 9/11 WTC7 Demolition Report (2001 / 2020)

“The discovery by Professor Niels Harrit and colleagues of active thermitic explosive material in dust from the 9/11 World Trade Center catastrophe provided chemical physics-based evidence for the destruction of the Twin Tower buildings by nanoparticle thermite-based explosive demolition”

(Of course we all know the towers fell in 2001, although I also used the date 2020 because of the date of the article in question. And admitting that I hold biased views against the “official narrative” of the September 11 attacks, I could not in good conscience link to an article ascribing to those falsities.)

“The seal will glow green, like an electronic scoreboard”

“The seal will be in the form of a tattoo, it will be applied by rays, some isotopes, three sixes. God will not forgive anyone who has accepted the seal. At first, the seal will not be visible, but then it will glow green like an electronic scoreboard.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Ultrathin tattoo-like QLEDs laminated on human arm
shows the QLEDs under dark conditions

(This is another incidence in which to show what is possible with today’s technology, but does not necessarily mean that the “seal” will look exactly like this. Only to demonstrate that these “glowing tattoos” are real attempts by the scientific/government community.)

“In those days, men will seek death and will not find it.”

“They will become like immortals. If such a person because of a terrible life wants to commit suicide, accelerates in a car and crashes somewhere, then scattered to pieces with the car, he is like a monster in a horror movie will gather in a heap and come to life.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Rob Skiba Predicted Mind Control Parasites “Liver Fluke” in Relation to Vaccines – “Liver Fluke” Studies Currently Being Conducted Using CRISPR Technology (2021)

” – it’s immortal; in a lab setting, at least. It continuously produces its own stem cells, it never stops and it can make itself innumerable times; you can chop it up into little bits, put it in a petri dish – it forms itself again, and again, and again. It can, you know, chop one of its tentacles off, it makes a new one. It’s over and over.” – Dr. Carrie Madej

(There have been reports of a parasite named “hydra vulgaris” allegedly being found in the COVID vaccines. There have also been studies published at the NCBI/NIH website to prove that this “immortal” organism is being tested to use for vaccine development. Could the integration with this parasite into our human body, along with the combination of mRNA/CRISPR technology, modify human beings to the point that we won’t be able to die?)

Targeted weaponry against certain nationalities (or on humanity in general…)

“Americans will use a new psychological weapon against the Chinese that affects only this race, and drive them away, but the effect of these weapons will be such that even in China they can never be normal. Slavochka said that the Chinese who fell under the influence of these weapons at home will try to get into a dark place and will constantly tremble with horror.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

US funds: Pouring Acid Into Monkeys’ Brains & Then Terrorizing Them (2021)

“Candace Owens tweeted, “Reading through Fauci’s experiments and the one I find most alarming is the use of an acid to destroy a region of monkeys’ brains to magnify terror. They then simulated images of spiders and tormented them with fear. Human DNA is 97% identical to apes. Why fund that research?”

(In addition to all of the horrific experimentation on animal and human life, we also need to keep in mind the Human Genome Project and the DNA collection agenda that in all plausibility has a lot to do with these types of projects as well. Collecting DNA in order to target a specific group? That would most definitely not be unheard of from a biological/chemical warfare point of view.)

Scientists will create a device to see demons

“Scientists will not all believe the miracles and this will make of such a device that will allow them among people to recognize the so-called “aliens”, that is, incarnated demons”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Why Is Dicyanin Dye Illegal? (2010)

“Before the 1940’s, private researchers were able to freely use Dicyanin Dye. During this same time frame the U.S Government banned any use with the dye.

In 2010, very briefly the public was able to buy Dicyanin Dye but was quickly banned once again.”

“…A friend of mine and four of his friends experimented with crystalline structures a year or two ago (mid-1980’s – Branton), and they figured out how to cut them along certain planes so they could actually see the aura or energy field around people. That’s when they discovered that all people aren’t ‘people’, or the people they thought they were. It appears that some E.T. humanoids have a dark blue ovoid aura.”

(Even though the dicyanin glasses above were initially created in the early 1900’s and then subsequently banned in later years, the notion that scientists would not continue to investigate the different spectrums and viewing capabilities, with or without dicyanin, would be impractical.)

Craters and sinkholes increasing in number

“There are huge voids in the ground and with a warming climate, the earth will fall into these places”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

“In just over a week since a massive sinkhole opened up in Puebla, Mexico — and three days since another cavern appeared in Jiangxi, China — the shocking phenomenon has turned up again in Israel.”

Massive Sinkholes Swallow the Shrinking Dead Sea – More Than 6,000 Just in Israel and Craters Forming Daily (2012 / 2019)

“There are now over 6,000 sinkholes around the Dead Sea on the Israeli side. This compares to 40 in 1990, with the first sinkhole appearing in the 1980s.

The Dead Sea is drying up at an incredible rate leaving huge chasms of empty space in its wake.

These enormous craters appear in the form of large, devastating sinkholes – some as deep as eight-story buildings – and are increasing in number throughout the region.”

England will sink, and the inhabitants will be evacuated to Russia

“England will sink and the British are evacuated to Russia, and the Government of England knows this, but they cannot believe it.”
– Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

London ‘among cities sinking into the sea’ (2018)

“London is among the cities sinking into the oceans as climate change raises global sea levels.

Christian Aid says London is sinking partly due to glaciers in Scotland melting, resulting in these regions literally rising as the weight moves off them. This has resulted in London and the south of England sinking downwards in a see-saw motion, providing one factor as to why the Thames Barrier is having to be used increasingly often.”

Worm-like organisms that emit hydrogen sulfide in the Black Sea

” – there would be a giant explosion on the Black Sea, since a small layer of water remained on the sea, and under a layer of water on the bottom of the sea some organisms climb, such as worms, of which there are a lot and they emit hydrogen sulfide.” – Vyacheslav Krasheninnikov

Hydrogen Sulfide in the Black Sea (2007)

“Hydrogen sulfide production in the water column by sulfate-reducing bacteria is the main source of dissolved sulfide, and sulfate reduction is the dominant process of organic matter mineralization in the Black Sea anoxic zone.”

What is Hydrogen Sulfide and Why is it a Lethal Hazard?

“Hydrogen sulfide, or H2S, is a colorless, flammable gas that is toxic at extremely low concentrations.

Hydrogen sulfide forms as a result of microbes breaking down organic material in areas with little or no oxygen. This gas can often be found in natural sources where elemental sulfur comes into contact with organic materials. For instance, it can be found in volcanic gases, natural gas, and some well water and hot springs.”

While we cannot discount that this has been a propped up propaganda, the uncannily specific subject matter, of which not many of his age would even be interested in – nor likely, his mother – lends a type of interesting credence to this material. And while many sites attempt to debunk the legitimacy of this young prophet, we see the same ridiculing and smear campaigns happening to anyone who goes against the mainstream narrative.

And of course there are theories that the child may have just had lucky guesses or discussed topics that coincidentally came true (or perhaps “they” deliberately took certain prophecies to make them come true), or perhaps he was just a really well-educated child for his age, or his mother embellished stories of her son for notoriety or some such other reason (although those closest to this family would know for sure)… but that still doesn’t detract from the unfolding of the accuracy in these certain events that, in my opinion, deserves a deeper look. 

"‘And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, That I will pour out of My Spirit on all flesh; Your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, Your young men shall see visions, Your old men shall dream dreams."
Acts 2:17

Fact checking is extremely important. I want to reiterate not to take everything at face value; no matter what you read, where you read it from, or who you hear it from. And to be clear, do not rely on “fact checking” websites to give you accurate information either. These are just as likely, (if not even more likely…), to feed false information and false debunking accounts to manipulate the reader. Please take everything into consideration before adhering to a certain narrative – and always keep your mind open to other possibilities.

The Other Virus: Learned Helplessness

Compliance leading to our downfall.

Reblogged from peckford42.wordpress.com

What is a culture of compliance, and ever-shifting rules, doing to us?

MAY 17, 2021|12:01 AM

PETER VAN BUREN

Why would any American allow the government to deny him a final goodbye to the person who raised him? Why would anyone allow grandma to die untouched in a hospital room without fighting back? In the post-vaccination era, why don’t people remove their masks? Learned helplessness, employed as a control tool.

Learned helplessness is well documented. It takes place when an individual believes he continuously faces a negative, uncontrollable situation and stops trying to improve his circumstances, even when he has the ability to do so. Discovering the loss of control elicits a passive reaction to a harmful situation. Psychologists call this a maladaptive response, characterized by avoidance of challenges and the collapse of problem-solving when obstacles arise. You give up trying to fight back

An example may help: You must keep up with ever-changing mask and other hygiene theater rules, many of which make no sense (mask in the gym, but not the pool; mask when going to the restaurant toilet but not at your table; NYC hotels are closed while Vegas casinos are open; Disney California closed while Disney Florida was open) and comply.

You could push back, but you have been made afraid at a core level (forget about yourself rascal, you’re going to kill grandma if you don’t do what we say) and so you just give in. Once upon a time we were told a vaccine would end it all, yet the restrictions remain largely in place. You’re left believing nothing will fix this. Helpless to resist, you comply, “out of an abundance of caution.”

American psychologists Martin Seligman and Steven Maier created the term “learned helplessness” in 1967. They were studying animal behavior by delivering electric shocks to dogs (it was a simpler time). Dogs who learned they couldn’t escape the shock simply stopped trying, even after the scientists removed a barrier and the dog could have jumped away.

Learned helplessness has three main features: a passive response to trauma, disbelief that trauma can be controlled, and stress.

Example: You are being stalked by a killer disease which often has no outward symptoms. There is nothing you can do but hide inside and buy things from Amazon. The government failed to stop the virus initially, failed to warn you, failed to supply ventilators and PPE gear, and failed to produce a vaccine quickly enough. You may die. You may kill your family members along the way. You have lost your job by government decree and are forced to survive on unemployment and the odd stimulus check—manufactured dependence. It is all very real: WebMD saw a 251 percent increase in searches for anxiety this April.

Americans, with their cult-like devotion to victimhood, are primed for learned helplessness. Your problems are because you’re a POC, or fat, or on some spectrum. You are not responsible, can’t fix something so systemic, and best do what you are told.

The way out is to allow people to make decisions and choices on their own. This therapy is used with victims of learned helplessness such as hostages. During their confinement all the important decisions of their life, and most of the minor ones, were made by their captors. Upon release, many hostages fear things as simple as a meal choice and need to be coaxed out of helplessness one micro-choice at a time.

Example: You cannot choose where to stand, so follow the marks on the floor. Ignore the research saying three feet apart is as useful or useless as six feet apart. Don’t think about why the rules are the same inside a narrow hallway and outsidein the fresh air but don’t apply at all on airplanes.

Kin to learned helplessness are enforcers. Suddenly your waitress transitions from someone serving you into someone ordering you to wear a mask, sit alone, eat outside, etc. Flight attendants morph from delivering drinks to holding the power to have security haul you to jail for unmasking when not actively eating. Companies once run by entrepreneurs are today controlled by the harassment-stalking undead from HR. We’ve become a republic of hall monitors. And there it is. The wrong people are in charge.

One of the better examples of learned helplessness is One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, a great book made into an impressive movie starring a lean Jack Nicholson. Nurse Ratched cows a group of mentally ill men into complete learned helplessness, encouraging them to rat each other out for small offenses, and to follow her every order no matter how absurd. The kicker comes near the end when we learn all of the men (except Nicholson) are free to leave the hospital at any time. They just…can’t.

It is amazing how fast people stepped into the Nurse Ratched role. Within moments of COVID’s arrival in the national conscience, officials like California’s Gavin Newsom, and New York’s Andrew Cuomo and Bill De Blasio raced to assume fat emergency powers. They spent not one moment assessing the impact of their decisions to lock down against the effects of the lock down. They ignored information questioning the value of lock down. 

They turned topsy-turvy the idea that in a free society the burden of proof is on those who would restrict freedom and not on those who resist such restrictions.

They were aided in manufacturing learned helplessness by the most sophisticated propaganda operation ever created. Already engorged with the coin of three years of fake news, the legacy media saw the value of a new crisis in working toward their two real goals: making as much money as possible garnering clicks, and defeating Donald Trump. Previous shows—Russiagate, with a hat tip to 9/11 when Americans demanded fewer freedoms to feel safer—illustrated the way. On a 24/7 basis Americans were injected with the message: You are helpless and Donald “COVID” Trump will kill you; your only hope is to comply fully with the people at CNN who are administering the electric shocks.

Truth is useless to propagandists, actually a threat. 

Look at what turned out to be false (in addition to Russiagate): We never ran out of ventilators or PPE or nurses or ICU beds or morgues. Masks are not needed outdoors. We did in fact develop a vaccine, several for that matter, in less than a year. Almost everyone who died was elderly or had serious comorbidities (a distinct class) but we salivated over “new case numbers” as the primary metric anyway because they went up so much faster. When people questioned the real-world view against the media portrayal, they were told about “asymptomatic COVID” or shunned as hoaxers. Everyone makes mistakes. But just as with Russiagate, all the media mistakes swung one way.

It worked. Condo boards boarded up their gyms. Restaurants forced diners to eat outside in the rain. Entire industries, such as tourism and hospitality, disappeared overnight. New groups were shoved into poverty and unemployment. Children were denied education, criminals released from jails. People were told not to hug their loved ones or celebrate birthdays or attend church. We were told to fear our neighbors as potential carriers.

Every time dissenting information popped up—Florida opening its beaches for Spring Break, for example—the media rushed in to declare everyone was going to die. Texas was declared dead, South Dakota was declared dead, and Americans believed it all even when reports of survivors started drifting out of Disney World.

Americans are not comfortable accepting that their lives being manipulated at this level, the way for example many Russians assume it to be so. We tend to dismiss such things as conspiracy theories and make an Oliver Stone joke. 

But ask yourself how many of the temporary security and surveillance measures enacted after 9/11 are still controlling our lives almost 20 years later. Is the terror threat still so real the FBI needs to monitor our social media in bulk? Was it ever?

Nothing here is to say vaccines don’t work, or are themselves dangerous. That’s another debate. 

This is about the politics of mass control. Add up the “doesn’t really make sense but we do it anyway” COVID rules and try to make sense of them. Why would otherwise smart leaders implement such rules, for example in New York’s case, purposely impoverishing a city or seeking to defund the police in the midst of triple digit rises in crime? Every time your answer is, “it just doesn’t make sense,” consider a scenario beyond coincidence where it would make sense, however out there that might be. It might be the most important thing you can do.

Then look out the window. Remember “15 days to flatten the curve?” With no voting or debate, a system based on a medical procedure capable of controlling our travel, which businesses we can visit, which hotels we can stay in, what jobswe can hold, what education we can access, at which point it is no more “voluntary” than breathing, was put into place. We no longer need to ask what is going to happen. 

Remember the real question is always why.
