Saving Mother Earth

Are we using today’s best technologies and using the Earth’s resources efficiently?

There are tons of ways to produce energy from a scientific point of view. As we all know, energy, cannot be destroyed and can only be transferred or transformed into another form of energy. In today’s modern society, one of the most commercial energy sources is electricity.

Solar power is produced by collecting sunlight and converting it into electricity. This is done by using solar panels, which are large flat panels made up of many individual solar cells. It is most often used in remote locations, although it is becoming more popular in urban areas as well. This page contains articles that explore advances in solar energy technology.

In current science today, we are up to date with the latest technology that is provided by our brainstorming scientists and plethora of researchers. Nikolai Tesla was one of the few geniuses who discovered the power of electricity and free energy. However, the more famously known Thomas Edison was the one who commercialized and made electrical energy available to the rest of the world. This was a historic moment of human existence on Earth, regarding the debate and battles of controversy between what we may know today as ‘free energy’ and ‘coal-powered electrical energy.’

There are tons of other sources of energy on our dear planet, however, it is an obvious sign that many of our resources are depleting. This is due to over usage and wastage in excess of these energy sources. Carbon, also known as CO2, is the base of all things living and non-living on Earth is the main source. World carbon emissions are over the top now as we continue to use fossil fuels, oil & gas, coal and more.

Below is a graph chart to depict the numbers per metric ton.

As you can see above, the numbers keep rising and rising as we continue to grow and evolve as one race and together as carbon based lifeforms. Getting worried now?

Here’s how we can help contribute to saving the planet by reducing our carbon footprints.

Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

If you live in a big city, chances are that you are not committing all the aforementioned steps for reducing your carbon footprint, assuming you are not a peace and love kinda hippie from the 70s. I am also guilty as charged, doing my very best to contribute in a positive manner towards our planet. Let’s work towards our common goal of preserving our resources and lifeforms in this beautiful world that we share!

Make Love, Not War

World War Terror

With the recent attacks in Paris, bombings in Syria and many other human tragedies, it is now clear to most that we, as a human beings, are being leashed by fear. Where will ‘they’ strike next? When? How? These are the questions that will be running through countless minds all around the world as they are being misinformed. Do not get me wrong, the tragedy that happened in Paris was devastating and I am still in grief by the horrific scenes of my fellow-men being slaughtered and in bidding to kill. However, we still need to clear our minds and hearts to discover the truth embedded within such tragedies which will assist us in finding out how we can reduce and even stop such incidents from ever happening again.
Who is ISIS? As stated in Wikipedia, ISIS is a militant group and self-proclaimed Islamic state and caliphate, which is led by and mainly composed of Sunni Arabs from Iraq and Syria. As my searches intensified, I found that the terrorist organization have come about from during the United States of America’s occupation in Iraq during 2003. Here is a video of investigative journalist, Ben Swann, explaining and exposing in detail, the rise to power of ISIS (LINK1).

As mainstream news flooded with coverage from the attacks of one of the most beautiful cities in the world, we were presented with the devastation, chaos, blood, grief but also kind acts of humanity where people come together, walking hand in hand, to oppose such violence. The scene seems endless and is still being broadcasted worldwide. On social media, people began movements such as #prayforparis (for donations towards the French Red Cross) and displayed the French Flag as their display pictures on platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, to show that they are against the violence and are “with Paris” after the horrific attacks. Whilst, mainstream media coverage tends to throw words around like ‘Islamic terrorist’ and ‘jihadist’. Upon further research, it undoubtedly seem that some of the mainstream news have been altered, even fabricated to only show one perception of truth, that these deaths were attributed by violent muslim terrorist from Syria. With the rising number of unnecessary hate comments on Muslims, an overwhelming feeling of disappointment encapsulate my heart as I see my fellow human beings, entangled within the loathing that only fuels more intolerance and resentment. Always, keep an open mind when it comes to information that has been presented especially from the mainstream media. There are many avenues of false and misleading information which will only segregate and divide us into condoning more violence and hostility. Keep your mind and heart always open to information during these times as it would be key to revealing the false truth that the Elite power of the world has put forth to keep us in their control.

These are a few videos I came across that show some discrepancies in the media coverage of the Paris attacks.

1. Paris, France “Terrorist Attack” Psyop Hoax – Cafe Suicide Bombing scene “Forensic experts” exposed (LINK2)

2. Paris Attacks: Staged Bombing Shooting Hoax For Syrian Invasion exposed (LINK3)

Where was ‘this’ kind of media coverage when terror attacks on other countries occurred? There are a few countries, beside France, that suffered attacks that was claimed by ISIS as well. Not a lot of the world population know about these. On 21st September 2013, Kenya, was a victim of a horrific mass shooting at the upmarket Westgate shopping mall in Nairobi. There were 67 deaths and 175 injured. On 2nd April 2015, Kenya also suffered a worse attack to that of Paris, that resulted in 147 killed with 79 injured and many more evacuated to safety. On the 12th November 2015, two suicide bombers detonated explosives in the southern suburb of Beirut, Lebanon which reported over 37 killed. This was also claimed by ISIS. This was just a day before the paris attacks and there are many more terror attacks that have occurred within this year alone. Here is the list from Wiki (LINK4).

Here are some other information on ISIS and countries that have been assisting and funding their regime:

I simply cannot understand the need for conflict, war, servitude and unnecessary deaths due to revenge and profits. This will only result in a negative effect towards the world’s population and ultimately leading to our extinction. I know that in all human beings, there is kindness and affection. A desire to grow and the ability to love. To overlook all and any differences that has brought us to this frightful stage in civilization. Of course, we have been through the bad and even the worst of times and we are constantly being pushed to our limits, cornered with no form of solution. To be beaten and battered every time. To be forced with segregation and hatred. To be lied to and use as cattle for the elite which only craves power to rule and reign, elusively. I also understand that we yearn the need for conflict which only arises due to the conflict that is within. Before providing any form of opinion, we should exercise tolerance and care. We are in a midst of awakening and there are some people who are aware of these tragedies that have infected the human race. Solutions and policies have been put into place to deter such mishaps by people who truly care and are concerned of devastation that has been reoccurring.

However, there is room for improvements to make it all better. Look at the people around you and feel their need to survive, to live with freedom and strive for justice. We do not need to have sides of what is right and wrong. We need to only work together with tolerance and love for each other to make the world a better place. We live within such a short period of time and death will soon take us. No materials that we have acquired or will be acquiring will last forever. No amount of fame and fortune can bring you closer to happiness and bliss. We have only our perception of our own rights and wrongs. We can agree or find consensus together, but every thing we express is based on our opinions, beliefs and experiences. As we all have a variety of different experiences that ultimately makes us, we cannot fully grasp an emotion or thought captured by the next person in line. We can never find peace with one another if all we think and do are only of our opinions. We have to be empathetic and understanding to the different circumstances that are. Clear your mind and hearts of hatred and fear. Look without prejudice and feel with all your heart and soul. You might find that all you see in the person next to you is yourself. Just another human being going through life as intended. We all have obstacles to face. Open your eyes and heart to realise that no matter who and where you are and what you are doing, it creates our future, our reality. It may seem impossible, but every act of kindness and love helps. We have to come together in loving embrace to create a future for our children and their children that will be of freedom, liberty and peace. Be of sharing and discovering rather than judging and killing. We only have love and only with love we can change our reality. It starts with you and me.

“The world will not be destroyed by evil, but by those who watch them without doing anything”

Ignorance of Information

History.
It originated from the Greek word “Historia”, which means inquiry, knowledge acquired by investigation. It is presently defined as a continuous, typically chronological, record of important or public events or of a particular trend or institution (wikipedia). As I dove into website and books of historical events, I find myself pondering on the veracity of the information that I have gathered. It seems that most of what I have learned in our school history class are only one side of the story. Information of which is mostly exaggerated and some even fabricated for indoctrination of the people. There are a lot of examples of these fabrications of information and in our current times, people tend to trust in these information without doing any of their own research on that particular subject. Nowadays, the population is more aware and infatuated with what a celebrity is wearing, eating or even thinking than any other information that is available to us. All these news and information on these redundancies are made to seem more important than that of war, inhumane acts, pollution and many others.

The mainstream news and information outlets only provides information that tends to sway towards what the appointment of power in that particular country or corporation want us to ponder about in an explicit view of just one perception. You can clearly expect these entity to only show us certain information while withholding others. No matter what, we as the people hold the power of choice. We can just blindly accept it or we can choose to learn more before making the decision on that information. We as the population will need to have these information interpreted according to our own beliefs and understanding while keeping an open mind which is much more difficult said than done. We live in the age of information but we are never well-informed.

“All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” A quote by Friedrich Wihelm, a German philosopher whose work has exerted a profound influence on Western philosophy and modern intellectual history.

Here are some links of evidence that shows us some of the exaggeration and confabulation of information that Countries or rather the Government want us to know and not know.

1. September 11, 2001 – Coordinated terrorist attacks by Islamist Terrorist Group Al-Qaeda on United States. Please see the Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth website (HERE). They are a non-profit non-partisan organization of architects, engineers and affiliates dedicated to exposing the falsehood and revealing facts about this tragedy.

2. 2003, US military invasion of Iraq. This may be by far,  the most comprehensive and misleading campaign of government propaganda in US history. Watch the ‘Hardball’ interview (HERE) with former CIA deputy director on the Iraq invasion. Here is another article, from the Independent and Global Research, of the 20 lies about the Iraq invasion.

3. Global Climate Change. For some, climate change is a natural occurring phenomena while for others, it is human induced. Here there are two different websites that gives you information on both sides. (1 & 2)

These information can be easily obtained anywhere and anytime. With the use of our portable smart devices, we have the ability to search, understand and even provide our own point of views on a particular subject. However, we at times, tend to be the culprits when it comes to fabricating and exaggerating particular events and information like, when reminiscing the past, describing a series of events or even conveying information. The intelligent capacity of our brain and imagination tends to alter and distort such information gathered and align it to our own perception and beliefs. This is especially when that particular information creates a conflicting paradigm of your beliefs. This will result in a feeling of discomfort which will ultimately lead to one’s changing their attitudes, perceptions and beliefs to reduce discomfort and restore balance within the mind.

We, as humans, have a drive within to hold all our attitudes and beliefs in harmony or to avoid dissonance. Leon Festinger, a social psychologist, theorized that a powerful motive to maintain cognitive consistency can give rise to irrational and sometimes maladaptive behavior. According to Festinger, we hold a lot of cognition or perception of the world and ourselves, and when beliefs or information clash and evoke discrepancy, it will result in a state of tension or stress known as cognitive dissonance. As the experience seems to have an unpleasant effect to self, we are motivated to reduce or eradicate that particular information to meet and achieve consonance. Read this on Leon’s experiment to show cognitive dissonance.

There are a few ways we can overpower and even extinguish cognitive dissonance. Here is an article by Will Meek PHD on how to resolve cognitive dissonance. Below are the few methods and also strategies which may help to reduce the emotional discomfort that results from cognitive dissonance.

1. Minimize or Avoid
2. Rationalization
3. Acceptance
4. Change the Beliefs or Actions
5. Integration

Here is a quote from the book, ‘The Universe in a single Atom: the Convergence of Science and Spirituality’, by the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, which was published in 2005.

“My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false, then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims.”

I feel that we need to take responsibility of whatever information taught or provided by researching and identifying the real from the fabricated and decide from there on which we will likely believe based on facts that are presented. I understand that we all have opinions on certain issues however, please exercise caution and also tolerance as one man’s food is another man’s poison. Opinions are indeed the lowest form of communication while empathy is the highest. In these current time, we as the people, have to always keep an open mind towards any information provided and also to keep an open heart to find consensus and understanding with one another.

Let’s use these information available to us to create a better world for the Human race.
