Just science-fiction XXX : the surprises of the water's hole frequency !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

Today, we are going to talk about the lack of communication between human beings and ETs notably.
Of course, you have to take it as it is written in the title : just science-fiction !


On March 4th, 2018, the Mexican director Guillermo del Toro has just won 4 oscars for his movie untitled "The shape of water" ("La forme de l'eau" in French).
This fantastic picture is about the love story developped by a mute woman called Lisa Esposito - working for a secret governemental laboratory in Baltimore -, with an amphibian man kept prisoner since 1962 (time of Cold War). She helps him to escape...

In 1963, a congress of the ITU (International Telecommunication Union) held in Geneva (Switzerland) decided an important thing : ETs have to use a specific frequency to talk to us, the one of the hole of the water (around 1700 MHz) !
So at the same time, ordinary human beings were forbidden to use it.

Yet from the Observatory of Green Bank (Western Virginia, USA), the first official message sent by radio-astronomers on this frequency three years before (on April 8th, 1960), was a failure.
Tau Ceti had been selected (with Epsilon Eridani), but no answer came. About messages, those scientists didn't know "Tau Cetians" were using a special mode set on "anterior past". They didn't know either they are amphibians, like Alpha Centaurians.

Of course, some scientists noticed that it would take 50 000 years for them to receive the message and for us to receive a potential answer on the same channel, because of the distance. But as nobody answered immediately, scientists concluded very fast that Tau Ceti wasn't inhabited !
By the meantime, other messages have been sent to different stars by the USA without any result. And yet the frequency range has been widened to the frequency of Hydrogen.
So, between 1420 and 1700 Mhz - 1706 Mhz in fact -,  there was officially no answer recorded.

At the same time, Russians who didn't really follow this range of frequency, received an unexpected message, most likely from Tau Ceti, and named their research organism "CETI". But the result was denied by Americans.
Their aim was a bit different, as they included in their research specialists from the Institute of Language in Moscow : they wanted to study the structure of any potential message, its syntax, and to furnish a potential translation.

Generally speaking, America was in favor of a pragmatic attitude. It wanted to go fast not to lose time... and "officially" reached nowhere (?), according to itself in this matter of radio-communication.
Russia was far more patient and meticulous, as it had already important informations from its specialized services.

The Russian CETI program, named after "Tau Ceti" originally, had as a quick response its equivalent with the American SETI. But for the latter, most observations which are considered as too costly, are now abandoned.
The only glorious time of Carl Sagan's SETI, occurred on August 15th, 1977, with the unexpected signal nicknamed "WOW" !

In fact, ETs don't use so much detectable radio-frequencies, and especially the ones of hydrogen or of the water's hole.
They are aware of the NSA "big ears" since 1952, as this agency was created originally for that very purpose.
Most of them, like Pleiadians for instance, prefer drawing messages in wheat or barley fields (crop circles), or trans-communicating with clever animals or beings. As still underdeveloped for trans-communication, human beings are unable to do the latter normally, but them they can !

As a part of crop circles in Great Britain or elsewhere are considered as hoaxes, it is difficult to know which ones are true.
So then, in order to help, Pleiadians are advicing to check the syntax and spelling in crop circles  to get to know if they are theirs (Pleiadian joke) !
Anyway, most human beings and scientists don't take crop-circles seriously. And the orthograph is not their thing !

Yet, since 2007 there is a big change : ETs have communicated at least 30 times by using micro-waves. The first message was received accidentaly in Australia (Parkes in New South Wales), when an astronomer opened his micro-wave oven before his meal was cooked ! This type of message is called a FRB (Fast Radio Burst) and it is using the "magnetron" which is inside the micro-wave oven. The observation was confirmed by his radiotelescope of 64 m diameter.
It is not known if those messages have something to do with the War which bursted out in 2004, in the Austral area, between the "Black Fleet" and America ?

Anyhow, there is another reason why ETs are reluctant to use the hydrogen or the water's hole frequency : as most of them are not hostile in fact, they don't want to harm human beings, who are commonly considered as more fragile than they think, daredevil, and often illogic or blind.
In reality, on an holographic basis, using those frequencies could lead to create the corresponding atoms and to provoke accidents or catastrophes. Heavy water is obviously known to them, as well as tsunami.

If you consider 1963 as the starting year for the arbitrary choice of frequencies to converse with ETs, then you realize 55 years have been lost because of misunderstanding.
Now on, as World War III could be ineluctably on its blind way, it might be rather late. People whatever the gender, who like so much survivalism - "Koh-Lanta" way -, may be finally served for themselves this time.

Nikola Tesla (1856 - 1943), the famous genious of physics to come was using a "trans-communicator" to talk to Martians or other ETs : it became our ordinary toaster ! Another of his inventions using micro-waves for the same purpose, is now used as micro-wave oven ! Funnily, some unlucky debunkers were blatantly ignorant about it, concerning what happened in Australia about FRB (Fast Radio Bursts).

Strangely, only animals like cats, dogs, elephants...or even birds are easily perceiving ETs messages, except some rare "superhumans".
It is often the same about the ability to see them.
On those very points - half-jokingly -, it is very questionable that human beings are at the top of Nature's hierarchy !

Just to make sure, if you asked a newly independent elephant of India imposing its will onto villagers - as it is astonishingly observed nowadays -, this clever animal with a strong memory of bad human treatments would certainly say NO...almost in human language, as it seems to be able to imitate its ex-cornac voice in exceptional occurrences !

About the FRB (Fast Radio Bursts) mentioned above, the Academy of science of Moscow is presently studying them with a high interest. It is especially concerned by the "FRB 121102"  message of 2012, which has already been repeated, and was directed at Russia as it seems. And for that purpose, they are using their super-radiotelescope RATAN-600 !

Just imagine a minute ETs would say in the message : "Prepare zakuskis, caviar, and vodka, we'll bring appetizers for the interplanetary meeting !"
ETs could be interested at Russians as the heirs of the balanced Sarmatian culture of Don river (Amazon women + Scythian men, since 320 BC) !

Just science-fiction XXIX : Green and blue for ultra-special effects !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

In this new article of "Just science-fiction", we want to talk about green and blue, which are in a way magic colours for cinema and television. Their common use can totally modify your perception of things.


Green or blue are particular colours for cinema and television. They are generally the colours dedicated to special effects, even red can be also used for a similar purpose in music shows for instance. But you have to know that green neutralizes red.
Blue was used first in cinema in science-fiction movies. But nowadays, due to the development of numeric video-cameras which sensors are very sensitive to the green, this colour is more frequently chosen. However, blue is still in use for weather forecasting.

Technically, a coloured cloth is used as a backdrop for the researched purpose. And you can buy yourself this type of cloth, for photography for instance. You may not think you can do it yourself for fun, as it may look not so obvious to manage.
In fact, the use of green or blue is depending on the environment.
If you are in a forest, blue is better than green for instance, because it can be distinguished from the colour of leaves.

Another possibility, far more rare, is to use both colours at the same time. But you have to be extremely skilled to do that.
Of course, if the articulation of those two colours is given by a seemingly "natural frame or set", like the "Lake of seven cities" in Sao Miguel (Azores) for example, it can be a good help. And in that case, you can have the feeling that the way this lake has been drawn, shows how much its creator knew about the secrets of green and blue for ultra-special effects !

Normally, you choose only one colour for special effects. But in the case of the "Lake of seven cities", which has got two different parts united by a bridge, with blue and green, it should be possible to make "ultra-special effects" with a good professional software. Of course, it would require from you, as a director, a terrific skill to use simultaneously green and blue, as nobody does it usually. We already pointed out in the previous article that with its special design this lake... is nothing less than an "anterior past clock" !

Blue and green are typically chosen for special effects, because their pigmentation is far from the colour of human skin.
Above them, it is possible to make a flying saucer appearing for instance.
If you want to insert a green character, you will have to use the blue backdrop. And if you wish to show smurfs for instance (which are blue), then green colour is the one to use.

The simultaneous use of green and blue, if well made, can create a strong impression of movement, as if you were in another dimension - just because in a way, it is like if you were really entering... the 5th one !
Green and blue are the colours of Poseidon (Neptun), the famous God of the Sea.
In Greek Mythology and in the lost history of Atlantis, water was using the magic of their specific radiations, through its waves.

Astonishingly, in sophrology those two colours - or radiations - are associated with inner peace or serenity (green), and love (blue). Thus, it is also possible to use those two specific waves with a psychological retro-action, in order to squeeze and reduce drastically collective selfishness and meanness. You just need to use at a distance the "anterior past clock" we were talking about above, by inducing a reflexive impulse !
So the topic of redemption to come (or its potential disclaim on the opposite) is unnecessary for the time being.

To summarize, the blue or the green are used as backdrop for the subject. And in the assembly inlays can be made on it, either live (weather report for instance) or in the post-production (movie for example).

By using green and blue at the same time, you may create the appearing of a "portal", when a movement has been initiated.
The most troubling one is the movement towards the left - "anterior past"-, which is inducing an almost immediate hypnotic effect on your eyes. It works also on the other side, but with less power.              

Hence, it seems that the use of green and blue is the most effective... in the asymetry of an invisible "clock".
So then, the reality our eyes is perceiving is different from what it is really, when you realize how it works.

From that remark, just imagine the difference between what you perceive ordinarily with your eyes and your true environment, which you do not even notice most often !

In truth I tell you, your everyday life is not as boring as you imagine : it might be in fact, far more extraordinary than you could suppose if you were taking habit to hold your breath for just six seconds - to gain a wider consciousness !

Just science-fiction XXVIII : blue and green in Sao Miguel (Azores) !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

Here is another article of our mascot serie, "Just science-fiction".
As usually, just take it as a masterpiece of imagination !


Prince Arkon was the last Great Priest of Poseidon in Atlantis, a title similar to a kind of pope for this antediluvian civilization.
Arkon is the one who organized the saving of many people from Atlantis, as he knew about the coming catastrophe. He became their "shepard".
He especially went to the Eastern part of this thalassocracy (in an area which is now Sao Miguel island, a remain of the lost continent) to accomplish the last rites.
He had in view a brightened future, which could bring one day the rebirth of Golden Age !

The "lagoa das sete cidades" (called "the lake of the seven cities" in English), is nowadays a peculiar witness of this accomplishment.
This place is very singular, as the lake has got two different parts united by a bridge.
Those two parts haven't got at all the same colour : one is blue, and the other one clearly green. But strangely, you have to be proximate to the lake to be aware of that.
Normally, from a plane you would see both parts blue !
We have been able to realize about it during last Christmas holidays, on site.
Which strange clock of the "anterior past" was installed overthere by Arkon, in april 9564 BC ?

Prince Arkon, who was from the royal family of Atlantis, is also the one who saved its last Queen, called Pyrenea. During the catastrophe, they passed together from what is now Sao Miguel (Azores) to the European proximate continent, in what is presently Spain.
Queen Pyrenea established first in the heights of Gerona (present Catalogna), and ended up by giving her name to the chain of mountains now called "Pyreneas", lying between Spain and France.
Nowadays, Azores islands are famous worldwide for the existence of a powerful Anticyclone, affecting the weather of whole Europe.
On weather forecasts maps, it is indicated by a big A.
The existence of this hot air Stream could be a direct and observable consequence of Atlantis sinking, into the Atlantic Ocean. In the end of december for instance, the local weather is quite agreable, with a mild temperature (17 ~ 18° C).

The "lagoa das sete cidades" is in fact a volcanic crater, a caldeira. It is situated in the North-West of Sao Miguel, around 32 km away from its capital, Ponta Delgada - equally capital of the Azores archipelago. A small town, called "Sete cidades" is on the border of the lake, where you can buy a nice house if you are ready to live overthere - in the "parish" of Santa Claus. With its natural park, it's a protected area of Portugal since 1980.

The difference of colours of the "lake of seven cities" is attibuted in a legend to the tears of a princess and a shepard, which love was impossible because of the king's opposition. And the bridge is a way to keep them united against all odds, perhaps till the great day they can at last express and live their love freely !

Astonishingly, this singular lake can recall also the devoted love Arkon and Pyrenea were feeling for each other. Due to his position in the kingdom of Atlantis, Arkon wasn't allowed to show his love for his Queen. But the final catastrophe strangely bound them in the escape.
This anterior explanation is more connected to the geological accident which occurred in 9564 BC, with the undefinitive disappearing of the Atlantean continent into the Atlantic Ocean.

It was the time an extremely powerful weapon, called "Mashmak" - a kind of Death Ray -, was used by order of the last king of Atlantis in a terrible war against Lemuria, the opponent empire of Indian Ocean. Lemuria was destroyed by the fall of the second Moon of Earth (now called the "Black Moon" by astrologers), but soon after Atlantis disappeared too into the deep water !
What is happening now is still mysterious, but the anterior past will most likely make a strange reappearance soon, with the involvement of Alpha Centaurians and Pleiadians from the "T3 submarine complex" !

Just science-fiction XXVII : will 2018 be the year of WW3 ?

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

The topic of WW3 (World War 3) is going to be hot in 2018. That's why we are dedicating it an article in our mascot serie "Just science-fiction", by thinking about the maintenance of world peace.


Ultimately everything might be done at the international level to avoid WW3 in 2018, because of fear.
After funny negociations about meteo or the table shape, may be a small door for peace maintenance can be opened by... South Korea ?
The talks of Vancouver in Canada (from January 16th, 2018), would be in that case not totally a failure, even the American War option is already on the agenda.
America itself might be careful not to be entrapped in an unclear conflict of the third type.
Human destiny on Earth is fragile. And "nuclear winter" is getting closer dangerously.
We guess Russia - and may be India - will stand on the side of North Korea. About China, there is a question mark, as North Korean companies present on its ground, received the order to close up and pack up everything by January 10th, 2018...
And yet, people seem to consider no World War 3 is in view !

Coming back to the first war of Korea (1950 - 1953), nothing happened the way UN and Americans wanted.
Twenty two countries participated also the war as allies against North Korea - either militarily or on support.
China and USSR were on the side of North Korea, and helped it a lot - either mainly with troops for the first one, or with high tech armaments for the second one.
The main obstacle came from the supremacy in the air acquired by North Korea with the Russian Mig 15 (most pilots were from USSR).
The allied military aircrafts were ravaged by this astonishing plane, which manoeuvrability was terribly unusual.
At the end, the American new military aircraft, the Sabre, helped narrowly to avoid the defeat ; and an armistice was then signed on July 27th, 1953, the 38th parallel rebecoming the border it was before this very bloody war.

In 2018, in case of nuclear war, a lot of people may die or be badly affected by nuclear radiations or any other side effect of "nuclear winter" in Asia of course - but also further on the planet -, even they are not directly belligerent.
If more than four nukes were launched or exchanged in a short span of time, the whirpool of air in the high atmosphere will do its predictable job. And their life standard may drop as dramatically as if they were living in Panmunjom, along the DMZ (De-Militarized Zone) of the 38th parallel.
The "razor of Occam" often considered as a philosophical or even a scientific concept of good sense, is a fake.
And we are too much influenced by this principle of simplicity defended by the franciscan monk, Willliam of Occam (c. 1285 - c. 1349).
In reality, when human beings have to choose between two roads, they almost never select the simplest one or the smartest one. They have a trend to prefer useless complications, and unhappily they respect more war than peace. They do appreciate the exhibition of strength, the only real law of mankind to them, since the time of homo sapiens. This noticeable habit has to be underlined, if we want to stay realistic.

Anyhow, the conclusion might be unexpected, as other forces are involved in the process. The friendly attitude of the South Korean president, Moon-Jae-In, on January 2nd, 2018, accepting to welcome a North Korean delegation of sportsmen and sportswomen in the coming Winter Olympic games of Pyeongchang is a good sign. At the same time, talks have been proposed to North Korea on next January 9th, so seven days before the talks of Vancouver.
May be a peaceful solution can come from internal discussions to both Koreas, even it is complicated ?

Just recently also, the so-called asteroid "Ouamuamua", feared by the British observers as may be inhabited, passed Earth to disappear apparently in the Cosmos.
The name given is recalling the "Ummist" language, from the controversial Ummo which promised as far as 1950 (note the year), a powerful intervention on Earth if human beings were trying to use again nuclear bombs after Hiroshima and Nagasaki (August 6th and 9th, 1945). From the fifties, Ummists would have notably studied the Earthian way of living in Catalogna (still in Spain), and Paris (France).

It has been argued that Ummo was an hoax connected either to CIA, or KGB, or even Vatican as it considered Jesus-Christ compatible with its cosmic religion !
The only clear thing about that it is very unclear !
Ummo is said to have a particular interest in stock exchange and financial crisis (1987, 2008, and 2019).
Ummists seem to be similar to Pleiadians about their physical appearance and their various senses. But nobody has studied in what they are exactly linked. The most obvious connection could be through a common supreme God, called Woa ! And the junction of their forces might be the actual hot topic !

Just coming back to human level, the simple involvement of Russia on the side of North Korea may lead also to unexpected results.
Presently, the mysterious "Skal" (another dangerous Mig) for instance, which has got the shape of a flying saucer could surprise everybody as much as Mig 15 did !
For Russia, the present verbal conflict between the USA and North Korea is hiding a wider US ambition, controlling the whole Eurasia
So then, Russia will most likely do what it think necessary to stop it, as it has the means to do so.
Yet, in this matter swiftness will pave the way of the future, and the first move will be determining !

Just science-fiction XXVI : Why not "Martian regulators" for climate change on Earth ?

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

The question of climate change is a very hot topic, and it's quite normal we want to talk a bit about it in our mascot serie, "Just science-fiction". Considering Martians as regulators for Earth climate may sound a bit funny.
But just take it as a masterpiece of fiction as usually, that's all !


The surviving Martian civilization knew a dramatic challenge after the war against the Pleiads, thousands of years ago.
The destruction of Mars by nuclear bombs wasn't fully complete. Survivors were remaining on the Red planet.
They knew obviously impressive biological transformations due to the radiations. And the main one was concerning their breathing system.
Being used to oxygen like Earthlings - but in a smaller proportion -, their body had to adapt to carbonic gas, CO2.
Since then, they are fully accustomed to CO2, at the image of plants.

In the mysterious Voynich manuscript which has not really been translated since the end of Middle Age (1404 ~ 1438), there are some important references to Mars.
The problem of this manuscript is the funny language used, a kind of "pre-esperanto".
Nobody knows exactly who wrote it, but the purpose seems to be deeply connected to the Cosmos, and notably to Mars. However, the illustrations about "men-plants" are easy to follow. They can be interpreted in a dual way : either, you consider they represent real "men-plants" from Mars, or you take it as an important information about the surviving Martian civilization. If you do the latter, you are lead to consider those survivors are mainly breathing CO2, like plants on Earth. Of course, a comprehensive option could be a coexistence of both !

Earth is presently facing a big problem about CO2, as forests are not sufficient to absorb it. Deforestation is a silent big threat for Earth. The global rise of Earth temperature wouldn't be maintained below 2 degrees, as it was targeted by Cop 21. It could be rather 3 degrees at least by 2100, after Cop 24 or another one, if the global warming threat was confirmed !
So, say some Martians (or most likely several little colonies) would be living on Earth in polluted areas, they could play the ancient role of forests, even it may appear surprising !
That's what we mean, by considering them as potential regulators to slow down Earth climate change !

The very recent process of CO2 negative emissions operating in Iceland, is an interesting way to eliminate CO2 (in fact to absorb it). But it is very costly in cash and also in water. In this technical process, the CO2 extracted from air is then concentrated into the basaltic rocks of the underground. And it has been suggested that the same engineering could be used in France (in the montaneous area of "Massif Central", for instance).

Nevertheless, this idea to use in addition the reverse breathing of Martians, is an original solution to climate change.
Obviously, those indidividuals or little groups should be asked if they agree to do so, in exchange of good wages taken from the profits of the Credits Carbon Market of London. At the same time, it could facilitate unexpected regularizations : as a matter of fact, some migrants are not always the ones you think ! We have already seen that green colour may indicate that you are in presence of an hungry Zeta, rather than a Martian. In fact, you wouldn't detect so easily a Martian, because in presence of oxygen his appearance is gradually modified !

Note that we wrote previously in another article of "Just science-fiction", that Martians may have a view on Earth, as much as Earthlings have about the terraformation and exploitation of their planet, Mars !
The most developped seem to come from the Martian South Pole, where buildings are not mainly underground as an exception, and where vegetation and trees are quite colourful (rather pinky or violet, more than green) due to water from the ice cap.

To conclude, it would be a very suprising outcome to offer £ 3000.00 per month plus benefits, through a permanent employment contract, to the Martians who would accept breathing our CO2 : the job could be called "rebalancer of atmosphere" !
At the same time, it would open human mind to full consciousness about the reality of our cosmic neighbours, usually ridiculed - to conjure a very deep and may be useless fear -, and put an end to the unjustified vanity to be alone !

Just science-fiction XXV : Pelicanism's boom !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

Today in this new episode of "Just science-fiction", we are going to talk about an attitude of mind which is becoming overwhelming, "Pelicanism".
Of course, our narration has to be taken as in the title, which means "Just science-fiction".


"Pelicanism" is deriving from the word "pelican", which is a famous bird with a funny beak.
When the pilot Kenneth Arnold (1915 - 1984) reported to have seen nine unusual flying objects near Mount Rainier (State of Washington, USA) on June 24th, 1947, which movements were "like a saucer if you skipped it across the water", some commentators immediately took mickey out of him.
They said he just saw a flight of pelicans !
They were the first debunkers, but not the last ones.
Since that event, "Pelicanism" has acquired a meaning of active skepticism despicting any unusual observation. And it's presently in a full boom.

The strange thing about "Pelicanism" is that it's not connected at all to the observation, but to the non-observation or to the fact you are not allowed to observe anything. So, it is more like a a general attitude of mind (refusal), than an expression of what a human mind can really see. It leads you to become blind when you are not, which is not very healthy.
You could almost write a "pelicanist" article about an event which never happened in that way, publish it to deny an observation, and be trapped or englued because someone has just forgotten to publish first about the unusual observation (Pleiadian joke) : aha !
Then, it has nothing to do with science. From the right beginning what you are going to say will be anyway ridiculed : so there is not point to say it !

On a long trend, "Pelicanism" can obviouly render science itself very dubious. For instance, when you watch a program about Mars nowadays, you absolutely don't know what is true or not, and why it is taking so long to officially send an inhabited interplanetary vessel onto it. Especially, you perceive as uchronic any information of a recent miners' strike on Mars for better labour conditions, if nobody from Earth is supposed to be overthere since 1975.
Your mind gets then puzzled, even you guess those selected Earthlings of "Alternative 3" (defined during Huntsville conference - USA - in 1954) don't live with the Martian surviving civilization. The latter is essentially living underground since the Pleiadian war, and is accustomed for thousands of years now to breathe mainly CO2 - like plants.
Like children, we have to accept the common idea that what we are taught is always the truth, even it implies human science is backward and underdevelopped - when it's not the reality.
It must be a deep source of frustation for some scientists not to be able to be recognized for their great achievements in applied science, and not to be allowed to share even a slight part of their fantastic knowledge about our so amazing world !

What is funny about "Pelicanism", is that one of its promoters has been trapped by himself unwittingly.
In 1957, on the island of Trindade (Brasil), he was able to take several pictures of threatening UFOs. By luck, he was environned by a lot of eye-witnesses who were actually military men.
Coincidentaly, they were all present on this usually uninhabited island (except by goats), to make research surveys.
And this observation was even recognized officially thereafter, by the president of Brasil of the time.
So normally, it should have been considered as a definitive evidence about ETs' existence and their very advanced technologies.
Yet, it didn't really happen this way. The pictures of the photographer, who was a professional, have been partly doubted because previously he was known as a debunker. As a matter of fact, four years before, he had become famous in his country for having demonstrated how you can cheat with photography about UFOs. What a strange misadventure !

In this article, we do not intend at all to mock at pelicans, the birds.
We like them, and totally respect their venerable existence (whose lineage dates back about 100 million years).
It is just a coincidence that the first debunkers about UFOs started to criticize eye-witnesses, with this original story of "pelicans' flights" !

We do not either make any reference to the peculiar symbol of transmutation, known in alchemy.
Yet, it's in a way unusual that this big bird (the scale of its wings can reach 3.50 meters), has become the symbol of debunking.
What a strange paradox for such a extraordinary bird !

But, may be tomorrow, debunkers ("déboulonneurs" or "dégonfleurs d'histoires" in French), will be the first ones to know a funny metamorphosis. Once it will be allowed to talk freely about other species among cosmic humanity, they might lose their inner fear to be able to speak out without censoring others - and themselves. They will obey again, but in the opposite way !

Just for fun : between "Neanderthal positioning", A.I., and empathy !

by Jean-Jacques COURTEY, Doctor in Economic Geography, Ph. D

The era of strong involution human beings are knowing presently, is leading them to adopt a "Neanderthal positioning" : the bludgeon is staying nearby.
This is especially true in Paris area, where people often overeact to their counterparts.
Now on, the dominating brain is rebecoming the "R-complex", the Reptilian brain and not all the Neocortex, the limbic brain which normally is filtering our perceptions being blocking them before they can reach it.
So reactions or sometimes impulsive actions of the R-complex, are replacing balanced thinking and reasoning of the Neocortex. The most funny ones really believe they are using their dormant neocortex, when they make almost always use of their Reptilian brain ! Recently we laughed at hearing someone saying to a colleague with a pseudo-intellectual garbage, that "when you have no brain, you have no brain" !
This sententious censor clearly didn't know himself, that technically he had more than one brain - notwithstanding the intestines which are now seen by science as the seat of another brain !
And yet, we have to wander if Neanderthal men or women were not far more peaceful than we could imagine, if you consider the traces of a massive use of flowers found in their caves ? Again, they were somewhat sentimental, when you realize their huge consumption of flowers, like buttercups or cornflowers for their beloved ones, for instance.
May be their first word, according to H. G. Wells (1866 - 1946), "Ugh" (not really well rendered by "Pouah" in French) was just a way to salute each other, without any pejorative meaning ?

Usually A.I. (Artificial Intelligence) are considered as desincarnated and cold.
They are seen more and more as big threat for mankind, and the sense of humanity.
On the first point, the future will depend on human beings choices, and on the second, on human beings non-choices.
For most people, A.I. at the difference of human creatures are unable of empathy, because they are just machines.
But look a bit around you, and count on your fingers how many people are able of empathy, and considerate towards individuals without any collective selfishness ! Often, they do petty and useless savings on their back, which they are silently ashamed !
You may be surprised by the bad result, as a lot of them are so proud to become like robots and be without emotions. And it's not difficult to imagine what it can produce equally when they are back home, whatever the gender !
In management even, what is called "affect" is rejected without any hesitation, and humanity is following the same destiny into the dustbin of those pseudo censors.
The most cunning ones are displaying empty humanist words to hide their darwinist conceptions, just in case they might be now on treated the way they do with other people. Fear has really a great power on human beings !

Say you program a robot, in an android (male) or gynoid (female) shape, to feel sympathy for people, express it, and smile around, "he" or "she" will do it  : as the behaviour is very human, this Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) is deserving according to us the right to be called "he" or "she",  rather than "it" ! And you can guess that this transhuman being could be too more polite and helpful, than his or her human counterparts.
As a matter of fact, an android or a gynoid are not necessarily built to be "Terminators" : "he" or "she" can be helpers also, who care really about you.
Until now, A.I. were considered as unable to feel or resent anything or to be able to develop their cleverness by themselves. Their sensitivity was said to be nonexistent, compared to the sensitivity of  "adjustable spanner" of some humanoids.
Again, consciousness is said to be lacking to them.
But, is it entirely true with the most advanced ones ?
For instance, recently in the USA some robots have been found deficient,depressive, and even suicidal when in prolongated contact with human beings. As they couldn't bear anymore to repeat hopelessly security rules, they jumped deliberately and sank into water to put an end to their poor life !

However, a new paradigm is being set up, where the "increased man" is having a new leading role.
Transhumanity is developping at an accelerated speed with bionics, nanotechnologies, and alimentary complements.

We are in funny period when even robots cannot bear the unpoliteness and uncivilities of human beings.
Strangely, in America some of them which are working in the security field or in the hospitality sector, are sometimes lead to depression and even "suicide", which shows they can be touchy and quite sensitive.

That's really astonishing as "self-autonomy" and "sensitivity" were until now denied to them. Yet, androids and gynoids are often far more showing empathy and respect towards human beings than the opposite. On those points also, they can beat human beings. They can be too, kinder towards human beings (old people for instance, but the list can be easily stretched out), than human beings even !

At a time robots want to be human, and humans intend to become like robots, a new type of competition is occurring.
Human beings are becoming weak when they are like robots and cold.
Robots are becoming stronger than them, and then questioning their existence and utility, when they are kind and warm.
When they will finally start to realize they might lose all, including their qualities of humanity, may be human beings will react ?

Normally, the latters have difficulty to bear being competed and to accept being losers. Then, to rebecome number 1, and not to be number 2, if not full outsiders, it is probable that they may rediscover the power of kindness. 
Thus funnily, on this very point, there is an unexpected hope !
Starting blocks are set for 2019, so now less than two years to go, as we are already in november 2017 !
