Buy food. A can of Spam may become a trade-worthy investment commodity as time progresses. And it is an asset that can keep you from starving in a pinch!I am feeling less inclined to travel anywhere or spend anything. I've already liquidated my wall street linked investments and bought some gold and silver. Hmmm... what else can I do?
I wonder how China would have fared if the globalists had not been moving millions and millions of jobs from America and Europe to China. If the rapidly growing wealth couldn't bring the CCP to move to a more democratic system you can be sure that it never will. The CCP can only survive if it remains totalitarian.
Yes interesting speech.LIVE: PRESIDENT TRUMP FAREWELL ADDRESS TO THE NATION 1/19/21
At no point did he refer to 'the Biden administration', or to Joe Biden at all for that matter. Only 'a new administration'.
Could be reading too much into it; it could just be pettiness on his part.
This could also be another reason why the left and demoncrats want to defund the police. Get rid of the county sheriffs that would go against their nazi regime and place their own minions.
The Cs acually seem to have a similar idea...There is a psy school called PCT or Perceptual Control Theory.
Today I think many are manipulated to become so "obsessed" by the propaganda that they are unable to gather true knowledge.Q: (L) There are an awful lot of people who are being open and trusting and having faith who are getting zapped and knocked on their rears.
A: No. That is simply your perception. What you are failing to perceive is that these people are not really gathering knowledge. These people are stuck at some point in their pathway to progress and they are undergoing a hidden manifestation of what is referred to in your terms as obsession. Obsession is not knowledge, obsession is stagnation. So, when one becomes obsessed, one actually closes off the absorption and the growth and the progress of soul development which comes with the gaining of true knowledge. For when one becomes obsessed one deteriorates the protection therefore one is open to problems, to tragedies, to all sorts of difficulties. Therefore one experiences same.
Q: (L) What do the Cassiopaeans look like?
A: Light form.
Q: (L) What do you mean by light form?
A: Humanoid light form.
Q: (L) Are you physical in atomic terms?
A: All according to the perceiver.
Q: (L) Do you mean you arrange yourselves according to what the perceiver wants?
A: No. It is according to perception capacity.
Today I think many are manipulated to become so "obsessed" by the propaganda that they are unable to gather true knowledge.
I think one has to develop or already have a capacity for "perception".
What is perception?Perception is the ability to capture, process, and actively make sense of the information that our senses receive. It is the cognitive process that makes it possible to interpret our surroundings with the stimuli that we receive throughout sensory organs. This important cognitive ability is essential to our daily lives because it makes it possible to understand our surroundings. It's possible to train and improve perception with cognitive stimulation. It is an active process and requires that we process information with both "bottom-up" and "top-down" processing, meaning that we are not only directed by the stimuli that we receive (passive, bottom-up processing) but that we expect and anticipate certain stimuli that control perception (active, top-up processing).
Types of Perception and NeuroanatomyPerception is a complex process that allows us to connect with the surrounding world. Classically, it is divided in five senses:
- Visual: The ability to see and interpret light information within the visible spectrum that arrives to our eyes. The area of the brain responsible for visual perception is the occipital lobe (primary visual cortex V1 and secondary visual cortex V2).
- Hearing: Ability to receive and interpret information that arrives to our ears by audible frequency waves through the air or another mean (sound). The brain part in charge of the basic stage of auditory perception is the temporal lobe (primary auditory cortex A1 and secondary auditory cortex A2).
- Touch, somatosensory or haptic : The capacity to interpret information of pressure and vibration received on the surface of our skin. The parietal lobe is the part of the brain responsible for the basic stages in haptic perception (primary somatosensory cortex S1 and secondary somatosensory cortex S2).
- Smell or olfactory : The ability to interpret information of chemical substances dissolved in the air (smell). Basic stages of the olfactory perception are done by the olfactory bulb (primary olfactory cortex) and the piriform cortex (secondary olfactory cortex).
- Taste: The ability to interpret information from chemical substances dissolved in saliva (taste). The main brain areas in control of the basic stages are the primary taste areas G1 (postcentral inferior gyrus, parietal ventral lobe, anterior insula, fronto-parietal medial operculum) and secundary taste areas G2 (caudolateral frontal orbital cortex and anterior cingulate cortex).
Other types of Perception
Apart from the classical five senses, today we are aware that there are other types of perception:
- Spacial : the ability to be aware of your relationships with the environment around you and with yourself. It is related to the haptic and kinesthetic perception.
- Form : the ability to retrieve information about the limits and aspects of an entity through the outline and contrast. It is related to visual and haptic perception.
- Vestibular : the capacity to interpret gravity's force according to the relative position of our head and the floor. It helps maintain balance and control our posture. It's related to auditory perception.
- Thermoception or thermal : the ability to interpret temperature on the surface of our skin. It's related to the haptic perception.
- Nociperception : the capacity to interpret very high or very low-temperature stimuli, as well as the presence of harmful chemicals or high-pressure stimuli. It is related to the haptic and thermoception.
- Itching : the ability to interpret harmful stimuli on our skin that causes scratching. It's related to haptic perception.
- Propioception: the ability to interpret information about the position and state of our muscles and tendons which allow us to be aware of our posture and in what area is each part of our body. It is related to the vestibular and haptic perception.
- Interoceptive : the capacity to interpret the sensations that indicate the state of our internal organs.
- Time : The ability to interpret changes in stimuli and be able to organize them in time.
- Kinesthetic : the ability to interpret information about movement and velocity of our surroundings and our own body. It is related to visual, spatial, time, haptic, interoceptive, propioception and vestibular perception.
- Chemosensory : the ability to interpret chemical substances dissolved in saliva that translate into strong tastes. It is related to taste perception but the two use different structures.
- Magnetoreception or magnetoception: the capacity to interpret information from magnetic fields. It is more developed in animals like pigeons. However, it has been discovered that humans also have magnetic material in the ethmoid (a nose bone), making it possible for humans to have magnetoception.
Phases of PerceptionPerception is not a single process that happens spontaneously. Instead, it is a series of phases that take place in order for the correct appreciation of stimuli to occur. For example, to perceive visual information, it's not enough for light to reflect off an object and this stimulating our retinal receptor cells for them to send this information to the correct brain areas. For it to happen, all of that is necessary. However, it is an active process, where we have to select, organize and interpret the information sent to the brain:
- Selection: The number of stimuli we are exposed daily exceeds our capacity. For this reason, we need to filter and choose the information we want to perceive. This selection is done through our attention, experiences, necessities and preferences.
- Organization: Once we know what to perceive, we need to gather the stimuli in groups in order to give them meaning. In perception, there is synergy, since it is an overall recognition of what is perceived and it can't be reduced to separate stimuli characteristics. According to Gestalt principles, stimuli organization is not random but instead it follows specific criteria.
- Interpretation: When we have organized all the selected stimuli, we then proceed to give them meaning, completing the perception process. The interpretation process is modulated by our experience and expectations.
Other Gestalt principles
Other Gestalt principles highlight the person's role in this process, designating a three stage sequence:
- Step 1: First hypothesis about what we are about to perceive. This will guide the selection, organization and interpretation of the stimuli.
- Step 2: Entrance of the sensory information.
- Step 3: Contrast the first hypothesis with the sensory information obtained.
Examples of Perception
- It's important to identify on time any perceptive problem that the student might have. This will allow us to apply the means necessary so no auditory information is lost (what the professor says) or visual information (the text on the board and books).
- A correct perception helps workers do their job efficiently. Artists are a clear example of the importance of it in the professional world. However, any job requires, in a greater or lesser manner, some type of perception: sweepers, taxi drivers, designers, policemen, cashiers, builders, etc.
- Perceiving road signs, as well as sounds from your own car, is essential in driving safely.
- It makes it possible for us to advance in our environment and interact with it. Grocery shopping, playing a video game, cooking and doing laundry require that we use all our senses.
Agnosia and other disorders regarding perceptionIn some circumstances, perception may not reflect reality without this being pathological. These "failures" in perception may be illusions or hallucinations. Illusions refer to an erroneous interpretation of a real external stimulus, while hallucinations consist of an erroneous perception without the presence of a real external stimulus. These perceptual experiences can happen with any existing pathologies, they are mainly caused by physiological or cognitive characteristics of the system or altered states (substance abuse or sleep). An example of illusion would be the well-known optical illusions (perceiving two identical colours differently, perceiving movement in a static image, etc.). The most common hallucinations are hypnagogic (when you are falling asleep and perceive a figure, sound or feel like someone is touching you), hypnopompic (same sensations but when you are waking up) and the ones derived from consuming hallucinogenic drugs (such as LSD or hallucinogenic mushrooms that provoke more elaborate hallucinations). Nonetheless, illusions and hallucinations can also be pathological, related with schizophrenia, psychosis episodes, delusional ideas.
Perception can also be altered by damage to our sensory organs (for example, an eye injury), damage in the pathways that take the sensory information to the brain (for example, glaucoma) or in the brain areas in charge of perception (for example, an injury in the occipital cortex). A damage in any of these three points can alter the normal perception of stimuli.
The most common perception disorder is Agnosia. This disorder entails a difficulty in directing and controlling perception, as well as behaviour in general. There are two types: Perceptive visual agnosia (can see parts of an object but is incapable of understanding the object as a whole) and Associative visual agnosia (understands the object as a whole but can place what object is it). It's difficult to understand it through these disorders since even though they can see, for them it is a similar sensation to being blind. There are also more specific disorders, such as akinetopsia (inability to see movement), achromatopsia (inability to see colours), prosopagnosia (inability to recognize familiar faces), auditive agnosia (inability to recognize an object by sound, and, in the case of verbal information, person with agnosia wouldn't be able to recognize the language as such), amusia (inability to recognize or reproduce musical tones or rhythms). These disorders are produced by brain damages such as ictus, brain trauma or, even a neurodegenerative disease.
How Can you Measure and Assess Perception?Perception evaluation can be of great help in different aspects of life: in academic fields (to know if a student needs extra help to perceive the information in class), in clinical fields ( to know if a patient will present difficulties in relation to the environment)or in professional fields (to know if a worker needs support due to a perceptive problem).
Through a complete neuropsychological evaluation we can measure it and other cognitive abilities efficiently and reliably.
I have been wondering what is going to happen tomorrow. Then I thought, ehh, just watch the show. (or don't) Then it hit me. If they want to quickly move into extreme authoritarian control with minimal opposition, a domestic terror law could be the center piece to implement that. If so, tomorrow could be a major false flag event to trigger and legitimize a quick knee-jerk response with the obligatory 550 page law written in 10 minutes that nobody is allowed to read before they vote on it. I sure hope not, of course. But that makes logical sense. Maybe this is too obvious to actually happen. I don't know. If I had to vote on a poll with all the various outcomes, that would be my guess. The ultimate hubris would be that they don't even bother with the PSYOP.
That "550-page law" probably was written years ago, and just has been waiting for other pieces to be maneuvered into place.I have been wondering what is going to happen tomorrow.
