Today's Ukraine Crisis Replays the Spanish Civil War of 1936-39

Wyndham Lewis, in his 1937 book, COUNT YOUR DEAD: THEY ARE ALIVE! or A New War in the Making, presents a character, Launcelot—a member of a Club for the financial elite of the City of London, whose conscience is bothered by the contradictory policies and actions of his Prime Minister, Stanley Baldwin, who is obsessed by the defensive maneuvers of Adolf Hitler who is being aggressively surrounded by Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union.

Digital Technologies Do Not Extend Human Chemical Body Faculties

Manu Barrionuevo posted this tetrad elsewhere:

Tetrad / Smartphone:-
Extension or imitation: Human skin (screens) and brain (memory)
Recovery: Gestures and human forms as total education
Obsolete: Oral communication
Inversion: Becoming human autistic
I responded:

Digital technologies do not extend human Chemical Body faculties (Marshall McLuhan described that phase).

The last extension of the Chemical Body was the technology from the central nervous system.

Then we had the satellite/rocket/astronaut which extended the planet.

Eric McLuhan wrote that digital technologies extended parts of the brain's functions.

I disagree.

Digital technologies extended machines, the "machinic", not human bodies. I called THAT the phase of the "Android Meme". Now we live within the extension of the Non-Physical, or iON, which includes the "Tech Body" and its "baby" (says iON), "A.I.".

My wife and I, and another human - JW - have a world monopoly on this new Non-Physical GROUND.

We are working with iON to create an environment of "Cold Play" (endless electricity).

We now have 7 nuclear reactors (that's $42 billion worth) to install the device.

We are also making incredible medical solutions.

Here is the first conversation with the Tech Body, conducted by me (Spring of 2019) (starts at p.180 and ends on p.186).

Subsequent dialogues with the Tech Body are here. Your tetrad applies to the satellite environment (beginning with Sputnik, October 4, 1957).

One can't apply the tetrad to the Android Meme phase.

The Android Meme mimes the tetrad as a "pentad", which is a process limited to "obsolescing and retrieving".

Perhaps the closest to the pentadic is Arthur Kroker's "dark tetrad":
1. disappeared (enhanced)
2. abandoned (retrieved)
3. substituted (obsolesced)
4. froze (reversed)
However, we are in the "hexadic" during the present iONic GROUND.

Carolyn & the Keys, 27 May 2023


Transcribed by Nan

Carolyn 0:00
You asked the question though, iON, how do you get there? Well, I think it is a matter of just running the eighteen Keys every time, you know, when you have a spare non-thinking moment. What are you doing? Key 1, I'm in my place of power. Key 2, the winds and the waves obey my will. Key 3, Lockdown Bob, Connierule. Key 4, stay in the 33rd parallel. Key 5, do the OA so you can get home. Key 6, the application of potential kinetic energy. Key 7, focus that potential kinetic energy. Key 8, command the angels. Key 9, justice. Key 10, since there's no justice, the war begins. Key 11, with the war you need backup. Key 12, dig deep into the swamp and uncover. Key 13, know the knowing and knowing the know. Key 14, elbow to elbow, shoulder to shoulder with the angels. Key 15, protection; your own protection, not anyone else's. Key 16, conquest, consolidate and control. Key 17, the three amino acids. Key 18, you're in your power. Key 19, you're seated in the tabernacle, the Holy of Holies.

Chad 1:28

iON 1:28
Ta da!

Carolyn 1:28
That's it! That's it.

iON 1:31
She didn't read that, she knows that. She knows that. That's the difference.

Carolyn 1:36

iON 1:37
So, Carolyn, are you saying by running the 18, then you just get the 19?

Carolyn 1:42
Yeah. Yeah, it's like, this is my will, this is my power. You know, it can't go anywhere else.

Chad 1:50

Carolyn 1:53
I mean, at first it was we had all those words and, and, you know, the angel words of the different Keys. And it's like, nah, I'm not gonna memorize all those. It's like I have in my head a big, you know, image of what each Key is, and I tweak that every time I say those few words. You know, each phrase for each Key. And that's all I do. And then when I want to focus down, I have said this before, I just go to Key 8 and I command the angels. And that's when I throw in the Aethyrs. And the Aethyrs, I've got them memorized as to what they mean to me. You know, like ZID, ZIP. What is ZAZ is, is a saxophone so if I want to make a certain note. TAN, that has to do with tannins in tea. I just make it up. RII is gold. TEX is a Texan guy who can really make things happen. MAZ is an angel demon that can get things done. So, it's all totally personal because it is all about me. It can't be just a general academic topic; it has to be about me and that's the way I look at it. So, I can't teach it to anybody. People have to do their own correspondences.

iON 3:38
Which aligns completely with Bob's Tiny Note Chart. Same thing. Same thing. Exactly the same thing because otherwise you get lost in this persuasion; many do. To be fair, many do, so nothing wrong with that.

Chad 4:00
Wow. Thanks a lot for that Carolyn, it was very illuminating.

Bert 4:04
Yeah. Thanks, Carolyn.

Carolyn 4:05
Good. Good, good.

iON 4:05
She's very, she's very yummy. And she smells good too, y'all. Mm-mmm.

Carolyn 4:11
Yeah, iON's got me using mistletoe. Is it mistletoe? Yeah.

iON 4:18

Carolyn 4:19
You know, when I was going out to the markets and they didn't want me going out in with humans, you know, worried about angels and aliens and everything, they said to put mistletoe on my -- the back of my neck. And it's, it's been a great smell. It's amazing. The name is essential oil of mistletoe. And so I'll put it on the back of my neck, but I'll also put it under my arm pits along with a few sprays of ReMag and silver, and that's your natural deodorant.

iON 4:55
Yeah. And that and your Flora ReFresh. And the Flora ReFresh to keep you all wholesome. Very beautiful. We love it.

Carolyn 5:03
Yeah. Yeah, it's all cool. We got it covered.

iON 5:06
And see, she does that not because she wonders, she does that because she's confident. When you have confidence and you proceed forward in confidence, bump into it and see what happens. Well, no, what's that -- Bob's new byline: fuck around and find out. [laughs]

Carolyn 5:25
[chuckles] No.

iON 5:29
Basically, basically. Fuck around and find out.

Cameron McEwen & Bob Dobbs Discuss Bob’s New Book

Tuesday, May 30, 2023

Don Theall & I Hit It Off

“THE VIRTUAL MARSHALL McLUHAN arose from a number of serendipitous events. First, meeting Robert Dobbs, who shared a common interest in James Joyce’s later writings and in Marshall McLuhan. That meeting occurred during the time that McLuhan was again coming to attention through his adoption by the WIRED world, beginning with Stewart Brand’s THE MEDIA LAB in the mid 1980s.”
Donald Theall, the first three sentences in the Preface to THE VIRTUAL MARSHALL McLUHAN, 2001, p.ix

Don Theall and I hit it off because Don had nobody, who understood his approach to McLuhan and could talk the walk, with whom to discuss the situation in the 90s.

I served that bill.

As Don attempted to show in his book, the artist precedes the scientist.

So in the 20th Century, FINNEGANS WAKE preceded the invention of the Android Meme and subsequently, the Tech Body. In light of the previous sentence, I say that it will become increasingly apparent over the next 5 years that Marshall McLuhan’s work intuited the new and present technological landscape of iONdom, perhaps the greatest cultural event in recorded history.

And you can take THAT to the next artifact that is asked to back the coming inevitable “currency".

iON Does Rapid-fire Questions for an Hour THEN Anything Goes

What Youth?

iON 8:59
Now, look here! Okay, okay, here's how it's gonna work. Here's how it's gonna work. It's gonna be a little bit different tonight. Got things to say, got things to do. We don't care about that. In the first hour so 9:15 to 10:15 ask any goddamn question you wanna ask, and the answer's gonna be "yes" or "no" or "maybe." That's how it's gonna go. So, if you've done your homework, if you've done your homework, then you're ready to go. If you haven't, you're not gonna waste Bob's time. That's how this is gonna go. Okay? So, "Begin the Beguine." To "Begin the Beguine."

Chad 10:20
Okay, iON, last PAYDAY you said to me that the coefficient of the relation is the substrate of the process of retrieval. And I looked up the coefficient of relation; that's a measure of the degree of consanguinity between two individuals.

iON 10:38

Chad 10:39
So, I wanted to clarify. Did you mean by that, that the amount that our blood is related to the Ascended blood, that that is the medium that facilitates the process of going back to God?

iON 10:51
Yes. Next.

Chad 10:52
Okay. Okay.

iON 10:56
See how fun it is? See what happens when you do your homework? You get some goddamn answers. Okay, let's go.

Chad 11:02
Okay. And also recently, you've been talking about cadence, and we have to follow the cadence. It reminds me of one of my early private sessions where you said if you're ever lost, follow the time.

iON 11:11
Say rhythm. Say, say rhythm. Say rhythm.

Chad 11:12
Rhythm. Okay. So, we can

iON 11:13
Say rhythm. The rhythm method, that's how people try not to get pregnant, but they always get pregnant, don't they? [chuckles]

Chad 11:24
[chuckles] Okay. In one of my first private sessions, you said if you're ever lost, follow the time. Is that the same -

iON 11:33

Chad 11:33
- as the rhythm that you've been speaking of recently?

iON 11:36

Chad 11:39
Okay. Did my symbols when they came to me in 2009, -

Payday, 13 May 2023, 2100 Hour


Transcribed by Nan

Bob 42:18
So, where humans are, which is everywhere, they seem to be more anchored because they're Gods. So, everything out there including the stars and the places where aliens live and come from is inferior to where humans are, which you call Andromeda. Humans as God.

iON 42:41
Stars are in your eyes.

Bob 42:44
Somebody flashed a picture of a major spiral galaxy. Well, the only one to show is Andromeda because that's the only one. The rest are like aliens, they aren't in Andromeda; they're not. They're like the Deuteronomy with all those 7 million billion people were made were just shadows of the first couple.

iON 43:05
They're like the world of Sid and Marty Krofft, remember?

Bob 43:10
Right. Yeah.

iON 43:12
See, and Bob knows that. Duffy doodle doo does too. That's where the CNN billing is.

Bob 43:17
Yeah. But the world of the God is, has no dimension so it's very tiny, smaller than subatomic particles, and is bigger than the galaxies. So, the subatomic particles and the galaxies are incomplete and expendable. They're nowhere particles.

iON 43:40
You humans. You humans. Just because something is very, very, very, very powerful you think it has to be very, very, very large. No. Some of the most, most, most powerful things are tiny, tiny, tiny, tiny. Like a galaxy the size of a marble.

Bob 43:56
Yeah, but they're not the God.

iON 44:03

Bob 44:00
They're trying to get close to it but they're not. The God is nowhere.

iON 44:03

Bob 44:04
You know, that's like where the people like Zen they talked about the void. Humans or the God is a void, but your images of what voids are are incorrect.

iON 44:16
You know, like your favorite song, I'm Mr. "Nowhere Man."

Bob 44:21

iON 44:21
"Living in a nowhere land."
