The Creepy Line

Google, The ‘Creepy Line’ And The 2020 Elections

Google has the power to sway elections, but is it already using it in the 2020 election cycle? The nature of the ‘creepy line’ is comparable to the ‘Twilight Zone’, where reality and illusion are blurred to the point that it is impossible to know for sure. ⁃ TN Editor

The Creepy Line is a particularly sinister term used in an unguarded remark by former Google CEO Eric Schmidt in 2010. In hindsight, what is most disturbing about the comment is how casually he explained Google’s policy regarding invading the privacy of its customers and clients.

“Google policy on a lot of these things,” Schmidt says about 45 seconds into the introduction, “is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.” Time pointer needed.

The Creepy Line is an 80-minute documentary available through several options available at the link below. For now, it is available for free at Amazon Prime, but I’m not sure how long it will be offered there considering many current concerns regarding censorship of anti-establishment themes on various social media platforms. This film offers a very frank look at the number one source of news in our country: Facebook and Google.

Early in the film, you will discover how Google acquired an enormous and permanent cache of data about users. Initially, the data was used to refine search algorithms used to help index the websites and information uploaded to the world wide web. Now, however, it is used to fine-tune ads and content that most suits your interests, storing the information to better provide content suggestions for you. But, this film will give you a really disquieting idea (at least it should) about what else they may be doing with that data.

Initially, Google was simply the most popular Search engine, basically the largest available “indexing” algorithm on the net. Then, Google came up with Google Chrome, a browser, to track and log not only what you look for but also where you go and every keystroke you make while there. In fact, Google realized they could serve you best if they know what you are doing even when offline, which is why the the Android system can track you everywhere you take your phone. With all the free apps available and used globally, Google has a very accurate picture of what everyone’s daily life looks like anywhere in the world.

At intervals during the presentation, Professor Jordan Peterson offers insight from his own experience with social media and agenda setting. For those unfamiliar with Peterson, he was propelled into fame when he very publicly refused to use the new gender pronouns approved by Canada’s Political Correct Policy. Peterson’s outspoken refusal to yield to the thought police led to him being interviewed as being a spokesman for the Millennial Mindset, especially their willingness to accept new technology without questioning it.

“These are all free services but obviously they’re not,” notes Peterson, during his commentary, as he discusses the impact upon his life his sudden notoriety and the negative publicity Google and You Tube caused for him. He discusses his own battle with depression as well as insights into his daughter’s experiences with social media, which gives him special psychiatric insight into teenage (millennial) angst, perhaps. Some may find his frank openness about the issues off-putting, but he comes across to me as a man who has walked through hell and doesn’t want to talk about it, but has decided he will do so, if you are interested. I find Peterson’s point of view extremely relevant, especially in light of the the news regarding Peak Prosperity’s de-platforming today and the implications for our own sources of information going forward.

He is not the main speaker during the film, but Peterson does an excellent job explaining how the surveillance business model works. This leads to a discussion of how Google Maps, Google Docs, and the use of Gmail (even drafts of emails you don’t send!) combine together to form and shape your thoughts and behavior, similar to a bunch of people in a control room with dials which monitor and control your every interaction with the world. (15:28)

Less than ten minutes into the movie, you might have already decided to turn to non-Google search engines, but there is no hope of your retrieving any information they already have on you. It belongs to them, a legal point discussed several times during the presentation.

Immortality

Immortality: The Unequivocal False Promise Of Science

Scientists who fall victim to the religion of Scientism immediately join the quest to achieve godhood by conquering death and becoming immortal. This is Transhumanism and it is a false proposition that will never happen. ⁃ TN Editor

The super-rich will soon be able to “live forever” thanks to sophisticated scientific breakthroughs effectively bringing about the end of death, experts believe.

Speaking to Daily Star Online, futurologist and former Labour MP Dr Ian Pearson said that the next few decades will see the blurring of lines between humans and machines.

He argued that such technology is already here to some degree, with retina implants and microchips, but the coming years will see that technology take a massive leap forwards.

“Think of it as like adding an extension to the brain, similar to adding a conservatory to a house,” he said.

Dr Pearson believes that by the 2050s, we will have achieved what he calls “electronic immortality”.

This will enable those with the means to afford it the ability to extend their minds into something resembling The Cloud.

Such a development could open up remarkable opportunities, including, Dr Pearson says, “telepathic communication”.

Describing what this could look like, he explained: “Microscopic implants measuring just millimetres across could be inserted, linking up to our brains.”

This would also see humans able to communicate across the world, by transmitting our brains via something like The Cloud to another vessel, such as a cloned human body, on the other side of the world.

Although this incredibly sophisticated technology is likely to be restricted to the super-rich for the foreseeable future, Dr Pearson believes that “by 2060, this could become more mainstream”.

He added that it is most likely our brains would be transferred into Westworld-like robots.

“There would be no need for human cloning, we can create Westworld-style androids with rigid skeletons,” he said.

“These would have muscle-like fibres grown to human flesh, and they would be 10-15 times stronger than human muscle.”

This may sound straight out of science fiction, but Dr Pearson believes that such a human android could be produced as soon as 2050.

“You would need to create high-resolution silicon masks — and this technology will be here in the next 30 years,” he added.

In fact, he is so confident in the development of androids, he believes that we could even hire them out if we wanted to experience life in another body for a week or so.

“You could even get to live as a pet cat if the android was created,” he said.

Coronavirus: WHO Urges People To Go ‘Cashless’

Globalists are taking full advantage of a fearful crisis to promote a cashless world as a way to combat China’s coronavirus. Removing cash from society takes all monetary power away from citizens while giving it to central banks. ⁃ TN Editor

It looks like the Chinese started something…

Following reports that Beijing had “quarantined” dirty cash, the WHO warned on Monday that the virus could survive on banknotes, potentially spreading Covid-19 within communities, and across the world. To reduce the risk of being infected by money, the NGO advised citizens in countries struggling with outbreaks to favor digital payments when possiblethe Daily Telegraph reported.

That the WHO is telling the public to avoid cash is hardly a surprise: research has found that coronaviruses have been found to live on surfaces for as long as 9 days.

During the statement, a WHO spokesman referenced a Bank of England study claiming that banknotes “can carry bacteria or viruses” and urged people to wash their hands. Other studies have shown that 90% of US $1 bills had bacteria present, and one Swiss study found that viruses had survive on the faces of Swiss francs for days.

The WHO’s warnings follow the People’s Bank of China last month started disinfecting currency deposited at Chinese banks using ultraviolet light, before quarantining the bills for a week before releasing them back into circulation.

Brits, and their fellow Europeans, should be increasingly careful as the virus spreads across Europe, the WHO warned, via the Telegraph:

“We know that money changes hands frequently and can pick up all sorts of bacteria and viruses,” a spokesman told the Telegraph.

We would advise people to wash their hands after handling banknotes, and avoid touching their face. When possible, it would also be advisable to use contactless payments to reduce the risk of transmission.”

Of course, that one of the world’s major NGOs is seizing the opportunity to proclaim the virtues of ‘paperless’ money is hardly a surprise: the globalist push toward a ‘cashless society’ has been underway for years now, having had its biggest successes in Scandinavia. Sweden has gone virtually “cashless”, and in such a short time, they’ve already confronted the many drawbacks of relying exclusively on digital money.
