There is a lot I would like to share although I cannot at this time. I will write more about it all when I feel comfortable with it. I can only say I am an avid researcher and biblical student; in the process over these 40 plus years I have been on many, many paths of which I believe were leading me to where I am now. I can only say I am shocked and astounded by where this search as brought me. Truth is stranger than fiction for sure…
Since writing my last blog and while having the topic on my mind I suppose I began to notice more stories, blogs, and videos on the subject. Like when you’re thinking of buying a 2014 Volvo S80 and you are amazed and overcome with the car thinking you have just found the hidden Gem no one has ever seen! Then the days following there are Volvo S80’s all over the place! I guess that is what happened with me and this tech stuff; especially in the robot or “bot” group. I ran across this YouTube video and I was astounded by the logic and inevitable out come of it. So I just had to share it with you all.
I remember when I was growing up a lot of people thinking that would happen someday, that robots would take over the world!
I think it has happened! Although in a much more subtle form. Everyone knows that technology has taken over our lives and the way the world works. I’ve even heard it said that technology has taken the world by storm just in the last decade. Whether we want to admit it or not technology has in many ways, taken over our lives. Almost everything we do today has some computerized system behind it for it to work.
The next technological milestone has been the implementation of the Internet worldwide. The worldwide web they call it, which interconnects almost everything. More and more the Internet is working together with all of the computerized systems that are operating everything and controlling most of what we do in our lives; from our basic utilities and much-needed services in our homes to the vehicles we drive, our finances, our medical services, our entertainment, many of our jobs and jobs done by many types of robotics; in addition to our social interactions, even our everyday communication with friends and family.
All this is done through an artificially intelligent super brain we call a central processing unit or CPU in a computer / tablet / smart phone / smart TVs and Blue Ray players / our vehicle’s brain under the hood or dash / medical equipment / cash registers and card readers, etc. These are what control all the computer systems that control all the other things that control our lives. These super brains or CPUs have become more and more powerful year-by-year or you might say smarter and smarter! Most of us are holding in our hands what we call a smart phone which in turn is controlled by a CPU which gets more and more powerful and smarter with each new update. The average person cannot begin to comprehend the power and intelligence of these CPU units which control our world. As a matter of fact they do not want the average person knowing the potential of these tiny super brains that we carry in our pockets, control our vehicles, and provide our services. While these technological miracles cannot begin to match the human brain and mind; as we use them more and more of them we use less of ours. That is a scary thought, and that might be the plan or “Program”. What plan? The plan to control society without people even knowing they’re being controlled.
Now, every day more and more of these computer systems which control all of “our things” are being put online! This through the World Wide Web so that they can offer us even more services for our benefit of course! (Of course the world knows too!) What many do not realize is that all of these computer systems being interconnected with the World Wide Web are tracking everything we do from where we go using our GPS on our smart phone (Even embedded – hidden in the pictures we take with it) to our shopping habits through surfing the web and computer systems in the on-line superstores to all of our purchases to our banking habits. It’s all connected through the World Wide Web and these super-smart super computers. It’s all “Super” isn’t it? i.e. marketing jargon…
This thing is not done in a corner, it is all over the tech news but most people pay little attention to those things while they surf the web, check-in at Facebook, play on-line games, surfing Amazon, make bids on eBay, tweet about breakfast, and talk to or text friends and family about everything they’re doing, sending pictures and “links”. Yes, like links in the chain connecting your whole life and all that you do. While these computer systems track you and record everything you do, – yes they record everything you do, they are storing it all in huge data collection centers (I could say much more about that) and sifting through it learning habits and patterns of behavior to predict possible actions and decisions that you might make in the future.
It is a fact that they are doing this and has been talked about on many news paper stories, programs and special reports and blog articles that I have read in the tech news that most people overlook or care little about; and they are glad you don’t. Because these are the tools that they use to manipulate you and control what you do without you even knowing it. Like certain adds or offers popping up in certain places at certain times of day custom made just for YOU by their knowledge of your life status, family information, habits and patterns… Who are “they”? They are the ones that control the economies of the world, big business corporations and big banks, from governments to the entertainment industry, and now at least partially, you and me. Money is the oil that keeps this world machine running, whoever controls the money controls the whole system. To what degree, I am not sure; but you can be sure of this; they are gaining more control all the time through these computer systems, the World Wide Web, banking systems, marketing strategies, social and entertainment industries along with our jobs, our income and what we do with it.
So, robots controlling the world? Well not walking around slapping us on top the head and giving us orders. Although there is an artificial intelligence system in place that is controlling more and more of the world and our life – you and me. For the most part it’s called “services”, and I do enjoy many of them and don’t plan on giving them up anytime soon. I am actually excited to see all that it can do and enjoy using all of it that I can. Nevertheless it is not running on it’s own, behind the scenes there is a controlling group (Some call them the Illuminati) That does concern me; but I have no control over them so I don’t worry too much about it. That would be a pointless waste of time when I could be on Facebook! LOL! …

I don’t worry because I trust the mastermind controller of the universe! The almighty sovereign God overall things! He is the author of my destiny, I read about it in His Book. I know the end of the story, it’s going to be okay!
Let’s see, I have two of the cutest little Maltese dogs you ever saw. They are my constant companions and best friends. We are a team, we eat, sleep and play together. We take walks and have talks. We love to play fetch and eat treats. Life is so filled with joy to them they bounce up and down and run in circles they cannot contain it; so it runs over into me and I love it! They can make me smile when it’s the last thing I want to do.
I have written a lot about religious views, some poetry, some technical stuff, RVing, and general life experiences. There is no telling what I might write about on this blog. It’s just me Daniel W Isrite and my life; love me or hate me, take me or leave me, I am who I am. I like to express my opinions but I am teachable, open minded to a point, however some things are ‘in my opinion’ no-brainers and non debatable; at least it would be a senseless waist of time ‘in my opinion’. Although opinions are like passing gas; everybody does it, some just don’t want anyone to know it’s theirs. They would rather share someone else’s and hide behind whoever it might be they’re quoting; that way they don’t have to own it. You see a lot of that on Facebook and twitter. I suppose I do it too at times like everyone else; but then there are times I just let my words fly and tell the world what “I” think. Although I have written some things I wish I hadn’t; it’s kinda like toothpaste, once it’s out there there’s no putting it back.
I like reading although I am a slow reader. I have took speed-reading courses and tried all the tricks but nothing really helped me. Oh yes, I increased my reading speed dramatically according to the test but usually didn’t have much of an idea what I just read! So the thing about more retention and comprehension didn’t work for me. I listen to a lot of books with Audible while I’m driving and enjoy it, still, it’s just not the same as reading it. I also read a lot on my iPad, and Mac (the iPhone is just too small for me to read much) even so, digital reading is just not like holding a book in your hands and reading words off a page. It really doesn’t make sense, it’s the same thing, but not the same…? Can I say that? I have literally thousands of books in my digital libraries for different purposes (Mostly for study) I use them for reference for the most part accept for some titles on my kindle and iBooks account. Digital books also makes it a lot easier to copy and paste when I want to quote something. I have books on almost everything I could think of. I also have a large library in my study that mostly collect dust. I have so many interests it’s hard for me to focus on one thing for very long. Maybe I have ADD I don’t know. Then there are times when I am zeroed in on something like a laser and I won’t let up till I take it to a conclusion even if it means staying up till the wee hours of the morning. Sometimes I just need to know, ya know? My brain wont let me rest till I know that I know.
I like the outdoors and nature. I love being in the mountains, or out in the boonies by a lake or on a sea shore. This is why I like RVing. As a matter of fact that is where I am right now, looking out at the lake as I type these words. I used to ride motorcycles cross country and tent camp. I did that a lot until I had an accident at work that injured my neck leaving some nerve damage. I can still ride, but I like to ride big bikes and I don’t think it is all that safe anymore for me with the possible side effects of the nerve damage flaring up at 70 mph. with a 900 lb. bike under me. Maybe I should get a scooter… Anyway, I traded in the big bike and bought an RV, well, three before I got settled on one; kinda the goldilocks thing… RVing is what I do now whenever I can; which is pretty often since I’m retired. My wife is still working and I do have an elderly mother that needs me to not stay away too long so that kinda keeps me from only seeing life through the windshield and rearview mirrors for now. RVing is more than just recreation for me; it’s therapeutic and the perfect setting for the few things I can be productive at and I like to do. I could even see it being a lifestyle someday.
I am a Christian but I am also a thinker. I don’t believe everything someone tells me because they have some title or are standing behind a pulpit. I have even been behind that pulpit myself many times and many times I’m sorry to say, I was wrong, sincere, but sincerely wrong. The difference is when I am wrong I will admit it when it is proven to me that I am wrong; publicly if I need be. Many will not do this because their livelihood depends on being right or at least in agreement with whatever denomination is telling them what is right and or wrong. I was never in that position as I always worked at a regular job. Teaching and preaching was always something I considered a gift so I figured I should return the favor and make it a gift as well. I was put on a salary once but soon refused it. I cannot count how many different views I followed thinking I was right at the time, only to find later on I was mistaken yet again. Now? Well now, since about 8 months ago I decided that the bible is my only rule of faith and practice. Many will say that is what they adhere to as well, however, when confronted with an obvious discrepancy in their teaching as apposed to what the bible actually says; they will dance around the issue quoting from this commentary and that expert Dr. So-n-so, juggling words like a circus clown in a bin full of beach balls. Anything but admit they must be wrong; that is if the bible is their sole source of truth. Anyway, I’m off on a rabbit trail here. I’ll just say, if the bible says it, I believe it, if it says it’s right, it’s right, if it says it’s wrong, it’s wrong. I’ll just say I do not wear any Christian labels, I’m just a bible believer, Jesus follower, and kid of the King of the universe who thanks God everyday for His forgiveness. I’m sure I’ll say more about all that later.
So that’s a little about me and what this blog may be used for. Feel free to leave a comment.
