Pluto(nium), the manga character used in the 60s by the JAEA to advertise nuclear plants encourages a Japanese kid to drink irradiated water because it is ‘safe’. The newspeak of the French and Japanese industry at the head with US in the evolution and number of nuclear plants explains why accidents like Fukushima and perhaps CERN happen.
Newspeaks of course require censorship. And so as in the case of CERN, once the social alarm was not enough to steer the course of this tragedy and prompt action from political and social groups, a veil of censorship has fallen over Fukushima. To talk about Fukushima disaster in main stream press is forbidden, even liable, as CERN’s issue has become to the western press. It seems both ‘nuclear issues’ are ‘things of the past’, but of course they are not. The quark canon at CERN (no other technical name deserves the final ‘evolution’ of the Nuclear Weapon’s Industry) will double its potency in 2015, crossing the threshold of production of strangelets and maybe black holes, and Fukushima, as this excellent Fukushima diary explains, keeps provoking new deaths and pollution.
And yet our technological civilization has as single religion the machine, and so the ‘name of god’ cannot be spoken. CERN’s incoming genocide and Fukushima’s ongoing one are ‘taboos’. God must be respected. Indeed, the wider view – the religion of technology that cannot see the collateral effects that machines are having on this planet – is needed, given the degree of indoctrination of the human sheeple, who no longer understands and cheers the values of life.
1. Ongoing Fukushima Genocide: More info at Fukushima Diary.
2. Relevant Updates:
June 2014. Children’s ‘future’ Genocide reported.
Some 39 months after the multiple explosions at Fukushima, thyroid cancer rates among nearby children have skyrocketed to more than forty times (40x) normal.
More than 48 percent of some 375,000 young people—nearly 200,000 kids—tested by the Fukushima Medical University near the smoldering reactors now suffer from pre-cancerous thyroid abnormalities, primarily nodules and cysts. The rate is accelerating.
More than 120 childhood cancers have been indicated where just three would be expected, says Joseph Mangano, executive director of the Radiation and Public Health Project.
The nuclear industry and its apologists continue to deny this public health tragedy. Some have actually asserted that “not one person” has been affected by Fukushima’s massive radiation releases, which for some isotopes exceed Hiroshima by a factor of nearly 30.
But the deadly epidemic at Fukushima is consistent with impacts suffered among children near the 1979 accident at Three Mile Island and the 1986 explosion at Chernobyl, as well as findings at other commercial reactors.
The likelihood that atomic power could cause such epidemics has been confirmed by the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission, which says that “an increase in the risk of childhood thyroid cancer” would accompany a reactor disaster.
UPDATE. Christmas. 2013
According to the Fukushima plant operator, Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco), dismantling the Fukushima Daiichi plant will require at least 12,000 workers just through 2015. The company and its subcontractors are already short of workers, however.
While there are currently some 8,000 registered workers, there are 25 percent more openings for jobs at the Fukushima plant than applicants, according to government data. These gaps are often filled by the homeless and the unemployed, those who are down-and-out.
It was reported last month that among the homeless men employed cleaning up the stricken nuclear plant for less than minimum wage, there were also those brought in by Japan’s notorious Yakuza gangsters.
RT’s Aleksey Yaroshevsky caught up with an investigative journalist who went undercover at Fukushima, filming with a camera hidden in his watch. He said that when a certain construction project requires an immediate workforce in large numbers, Japanese bosses usually make a phone call to the Yakuza.
“This was the case with Fukushima: the government called Tepco to take urgent action, Tepco relayed it to their subcontractors and they, eventually, as they had a shortage of available workers, called the Yakuza for help,” Tomohiko Suzuki told RT in November.
Japanese police say that up to 50 Yakuza gangs with 1,050 members currently operate in Fukushima prefecture.
Earlier this year, the first arrests were made. One Yakuza was detained over claims he sent workers to the crippled Fukushima plant without a license. Yoshinori Arai took a cut of the workers’ wages, pocketing $60,000 in over two years.
It also emerged that many of the cleanup workers, who exposed themselves to large doses of radiation without even knowing it, were given no insurance for health risks, no radiation meters even.
Update, april 13.
Sometimes i wish i were wrong. Most of the times but once you have seen the monster you cannot forget or forgive him. Yesterday the government finally acknowledged, a month later that Fukushima is a 7 event like Chernobyl was, as we have said all along this month.
When asked why it did not say the truth earlier, it bluntly responded as if that answer was acceptable, that if it had said so, people and foreigners would have abandoned Japan – meaning people must sacrifice their lives for the well-being of Japan Inc.
Still, the recognition of the importance of the accident has not changed Tepco’s plans NOT to bury the plant, as we asked from the beginning, to limit radiation, but slowly piece by piece, with the sacrifice of more Japanese people, dismantle it in the future. Why? The answer lies to the south, in the river Ota. I went to the river Ota, once it was clear to me that Tokyo tech didn’t want the wisdom of organicism to build up a more just and humane society but to build up better robots. So armed with a cam, I took the bullet-train stop first in Kyoto and finally arrived to the city where all started. And the first surprise was the rebuilding of the entire city with only a small memorial building, a half-destroyed dome and a museum in the center. Why? The Japanese after the war did not want to recognize the disaster they have brought upon themselves; they did not change; the Americans didn’t want them to change, only in the surface, so they would keep producing the machines of the FMI system, now for their American masters. That was all the change required and Japan performed well. The Japanese nuclear agency even invented a nice little manga character, Pluto(nium), to advertise the new nuclear plants that soon will spring up all over their coasts, so the Japanese will drink the water of the nearby springs without fear of becoming irradiated. The irony of a nation victim of the nuclear bomb that makes an icon of the nuclear industry cannot be easily understood without the larger view of Japan Inc. and the Financial-Military-Industrial Complex which the Earth has become,
Fukushima like Hiroshima must not represent a change on the direction of Japan Inc. only a hiatus. So the plants cannot be buried, because they would become a memorial to the foolishness of man, as Chernobyl is. Hiroshima was rebuilt very fast so nobody would remember and Pluto the manga character, soon convinced children of the wisdom of making Nuclear Plants in the densest populated island of the world. Now Fukushima must also be buried in the memory of the Japanese people, and for that it must be buried on the colorful sands of Sendai.
And so the plants will keep radiating for months to come, as the slow, never tried process of dismantling a radiating molten core of uranium and plutonium, is performed for new victims of TEPCO.
But of course, by then, Fukushima da-ichi won’t be TEPCO. The powerful zaibatsu has played with its corrupted pawns, all those aggressive-passive politicians that have come with the ‘banksters’ solution once more: Tepco won’t be nationalized. Only the Fukushima plant will be taken from Tepco and nationalized so the company that broke all safety standards, and it is still killing unneeded and unknown numbers of human beings and life fauna, will not pay fines, will not compensate their victims; all the Japanese people will pay them with their taxes, so profits keep coming to Japan Inc. The Message is clear: pollute, murder, save money whenever you risk human lives. This is the Free Market, the FMI complex, and its citizens, corporations are not being bothered by some collateral damage on the human sheeple. We don’t count corpses. We count profits, and as the news were ‘sipped’ days before the announcement the market was already profiting. Tepco was back on the spot, up, up as new columns of smoke surged from plant one, and 6 earthquakes threw down to the floor the citizens of Japan.
Update, april, 7.
And so slowly we are ‘becoming trained’ to accept the unacceptable: Tokyo power throws tons of radioactive water to the sea. Radioactive cesium will accumulate on fish. The sushi market will plummet. Here, in California, sushi used to be my main staple. You can already notice a decrease of customers. Radiation levels outside the ‘evacuation zone’ have shown to be up to 10.000 times those permitted. The loss of land at the astounding prices of Japan in that area is such, that it will be soon repossessed. All this could have partially avoided with swift action to bury the reactors. But there is a hierarchical order in the pecking world of the financial-military-industrial complex in which we live. And Gaia and those humans that live on it – agricultural and fishing communities destroyed by the Tsunami and Fukushima come last. They are always sacrificed, have always been in Japan and the world at large, since mechanism and the cult to money, weapons and machines changed the future of mankind.
So nobody talks of burying the plants. An aftershock could break the water-filled containers. Till when?
Will mankind react on time to create a sustainable planet? Or will the Financial-Military-Industrial complex evolve till poisoning the planet beyond our survival? After 20 years of activism that is my take. Indeed, CERN is just the first singularity machine that can extinguish us – the cosmic bomb. The second singularity machine, researched in Tokyo Tech, Los Alamos, France, Venice and Korea – a self-reproductive bacteria of metal will be ready in a couple of decades. The main problem as today is resolve the ‘energy engine’ for such a small ‘metalife species’. The solution has been found recently: radioactive dust sprinkled over the body of the bacteria will allow it to take a constant flux of energy to start its reproduction. Within 3 months it will poison the planet’s atmosphere and the III Earth, after the age of anaerobic bacteria and aerobic bacteria (us) will be born. This is indeed, the meaning of a complex system: it evolves synchronously: robots and their future brain Internet and their future energy, solar cells; bacteria and their future energy, radiation; what doesn’t evolve any longer is life; it has never been the center of our mechanical world.
But of course, you don’t believe me. This looks like science fiction. We are humans. TEPCO is ran by humans. CERN is ran by humans. Fukushima is not Chernobyl, CERN is not a research center of the 3rd horizon of nuclear weapons. It is easier that way. You will be happy. Just in case though if you live 30 miles from Fukushima get away and don’t forget your dog, leave perhaps your Toyota, because you are being irradiated.
3. Original Post-In-Depth:
29 march, 2011. Fukushima, a new Chernobyl?
Even if the government lies to the people of Japan, with a 4 rating for the accident, the Fukushima plant is a Chernobyl event of another type: the number of reactors and spent fuel pools accumulate so much radioactive material that even if the amount of radiation released in the first days is smaller, given the fact that the Japanese government doesn’t want to leave a ‘memorial’ to the victims of the nuclear industry, it is to be expected that in the incoming months the plants will radiate a similar amount to that of Chernobyl. Fukushima should be buried, but TEPCO is trying to save it with absurd methods like throwing water from the air, which merely will damp the electric wiring and produce polluted water to be released in the anonymous ocean. All to prevent the creation of a ‘monument’ to the foolishness of man.
The reality of the children of Chernobyl contrasts clearly with the childish Pluto-nium manga that popularized Nuclear Plants in Japan or the rhetoric of God’s particle that makes possible CERN’s experiments with unpredictable consequences. Life is a weak proposition of light, fragile atoms but mechanist science has never counted the collateral damages of its techno-Utopian dreams.
Fukushima is doomed. Everyone who knows nuclear physics could tell it. Even those optimists who believe the script could see the images of the III reactor, buried in the ashes of the building. So there is only a solution – not to dump water from helicopters but to bury the reactor as the Russians did with Chernobyl, with sand, lead and cement, to stop the radiation that will affect thousands of ‘future victims’ with cancer, specially children affected of thyroid cancer. In Chernobyl 10 years latter there was a spike of 100.000 new victims of thyroidal cancer.
Fukushima regardless of what the Japanese government says with its ‘safety experts’ is a 7 event but that cannot be told, in the same way CERN cannot be denounced.
In Fukushima the profit of each machine is 10 billion $ a piece – the cost of each Nuclear plant; and the expendable elements are the workers and the people the plants will irradiate, increasingly more, every day they are not covered, every day it is not recognized as a Chernobyl event.
The price could even be higher if Fukushima is recognized as a Chernobyl event, because the Nuclear Industry has been very successful re-making its marketing as no longer an industry of nuclear weapons, but of research (so CERN is not exploring the III horizon of nuclear weapons, strangelets and black holes, but researching the ‘big-bang’), and its plants are not the most polluted and accident-prone systems of reproduction of energy for our machines but clean – they do not produce CO2.
France, the site of CERN and Japan, the site of Fukushima, are with the US, origin of this type of energy and quantitatively a much larger economy, the nations with more generation of nuclear energy. The result is that US, France and Japan built a mystique around nuclear energy, which never acknowledged the hidden truths – the military grandeur of the US and France, the Japanese racist outlook and distrust of the rest of mankind, which makes them prefer the risks of nuclear accidents to dependence from Arab nations, oil markets and Chinese solar panels. Those historic, economic and sociological elements must be explained to understand CERN and Fukushima and the propaganda built around them.
CERN is sold as a research institution, using the mystique built during the cold war era, in which to justify the enormous amount of money wasted in nukes and accelerators to research those bombs, the American sanctified what till then were just nuclear physicists studying a very limited range of nature – sub-atomic particles – as the ‘high priests’ of science that would reveal the meaning of it all. So accelerators were marketed not as what they truly were, instruments of military research, but as ‘seekers’ of the ‘ultimate particle’, now as ‘seekers’ of the particle of God.
Master Magician, Leo Lederman, the Jewish-American main lobbyist of the Industry of Accelerators, invented ‘God’s particle’ catchy newspeak for what Glashow had called ‘Weinberg’s toilet’, an absurd scalar boson that breaks all the laws of physics, has never been found and will never be found, but Leo needed a catchy name and a good excuse to convince fundamentalist Christian Mr. Reagan to fund the Texas super-collider and give jobs to the nuclear physicists in an economical downturn after the Three Miles accident and the diminution of the Industry of Hydrogen Bombs, which was long past its glorious days, when it consumed 13% of the electric energy of America.
Amazing as it sounds, the most sacred of all human religions, mechanism, the belief that machines are our destiny to which we shall sacrifice even our lives, still goes strong and so during the Fukushima accident not a single newspaper has argued about the safety standards of CERN and the ridicule particle that might blow us all.
When i was young people were not yet lobotomized by big brother smiley, damned lies and statistics; they had something much more precious than calculating skills, they had common sense.
This has been all lost to the ego-trip of mechanical power in which we are brought up. Marketing has become the more sophisticated science of the day. All can be sold says ‘Say’s law’, one of the pillars of capitalism, with the right propaganda, imprinted in the tabula rassas of our brains. In the Millikan experiments, humans were told to torture and murder with electric discharges people hidden across a room and 90% of randomly chosen people from the streets murdered the actors behind the screen, because a scientist was telling them so.
Once this is understood, you can understand why nuclear physics, from being just an industry of WMDs has become the saint grail that will solve the meaning of God and bring us clean energy with accelerators and plants, the two instruments invented to manufacture the nuclear bombs that are now in lesser demand (for short though, thanks to our insistence in ‘liberating’ countries that do not follow the libretto of capitalism, we can expect a new race arm, since obviously if you don’t have the nuke, our armies and NATO ill-informed geographers will liberate you – where is the Atlantic coast in Afghanistan, ts, ts, one error is OK, but where is the Atlantic coast in Libya – I thought the military had good maps and gps 🙂
How the industries of weapons work is easy to understand if the emotional fog of propaganda didn’t disguise them. We sell weapons because we live in a ‘free market’, so there is no restriction whatsoever to lethal goods, weapons, nuclear plants, accelerators, as we impose in lethal biological goods (Aids virus cannot be manufactured), on account of our religions – nationalism and mechanism and capitalism. Weapons are the most expensive goods that make money.
This is the hidden reason. But nationalism is the emotional reason that convince, for example, the British that they have to cut health-care to renew the trident float of nuclear bombs, since perhaps the Americans? the French? – who else? – might start a war against Britain? Those billion $ are totally absurd, since Great Britain has enough nukes to retaliate against who? But the emotional discourse of Mr. Cameron convinced the people of Britain and was elected. Of course BAE, heir of vickers and Nobel industries is the biggest war company in the world. So BAE sells to any dictator who buys, and every 8 years we choose the worst, more criminal dictator, Saddam or Gaddafi to make a lesson, showcase our arsenals and NOT protect their people. Indeed, we left Saddam there in 1992 and didn’t arrive to Baghdad so we had a excuse for arsenal building. And now we have not parachuted day one 10.000 special troops in Tripoli, ending the war in 24 hours but only show-case and spend billions in air strikes while leaving snipers and mortars massacre people in Misurata for months. But people are lobotomized to such extreme by the visual, emotional big brother TVs of the Financial-Media-Military-Industrial complex (FMI-complex) that they believe we are actually saving Libyans. The same goes with nuclear plants, accelerators researching black holes, you name it. Those who are believers need a reason to feel optimist. Humans like to believe, the sheeple doesnt’ want to think, neither rebel, nor being told they are sheeple. So they believe CERN is safe when as today is still the biggest danger of extinction of life in this planet when in 2014 crosses the threshold of black hole production.
To the point, if the accelerators were sold by Leo to that luminary of western thinking, Mr. Reagan, nuclear plants soon found the perfect excuse: clean energy. And so the industrial plants that were needed to produce enriched uranium and plutonium to make the nuclear bomb became reconverted and marketed as ‘clean, cheap producers of electric energy’.
Suddenly, 2 military instruments, accelerators and nuclear plants became the Saint Grail of science and energy and the mystique that brings now Fukushima and in two years the ‘likely’ extinction of man by CERN, was put in place.
There are here at work several elements of the human ego-trip that conflict and cannot be reconciled.
– People don’t reason, they imprint their minds with beliefs, even if they internalize them and rationalize them. So when they memorize the Higgs, they just believe on it.
– The system chooses only those theories that back the creation of profits, the development of machines, the national goals of empire-building.
So the system ‘guides’ and ‘convinces’ people that the Higgs for example, is a better theory than the original theory of Einstein, of masses as vortices of space-time, which attract as hurricanes do, the faster they turn, so the black hole turning at c-speed is the most attractive form. This however closes the Industry of accelerators and so Nobel Prize Wilczek, this writer in the field of complexity and recently Sir Roger Penrose in his last book, time cycles, who have been sponsoring this concept despite its enormous power to solve all questions of physics are ignored by mainstream science. The Higgs is false but is money. Einstein’s evolution by those 3 authors is knowledge but it is not profitable.
So it never comes out from the scholar circuit…
Because what is clear is that science is the religion of mankind, and without any self-criticism, scientists, especially those who create robots and nuclear weapons, will extinguish. And nobody cares within the rest of society, as long as profits keep coming. This myopic vision of mankind is now ‘structural’. The system has transferred to its automatisms and financial and industrial structures the lemming-like race of our species, and Fukushima and CERN are just the spearhead of that. And as the speed of machines accelerates, humans become more and more an automaton of the process, with an ever more and more myopic view of all the complex systems that trap us into the 10th extinction cycle of life. Audiovisual machines meanwhile keep a rossy infantile fiction, an emotional ego-trip, a fog that extends to all social classes. And the sensation for those who still fight, is similar to that of the character of Matrix which looses his mouth in front of agent Smith, the same name of the lawyer for the government in our suits, the first ‘smith’, iron master, who imposed the power of weapons over the living organism of gaia, and has ever since worshipped metal more than life.
This magic mysticism built around the Nuclear Industry now reconverted with marketing for peace survived the cold war, as the industry had grown so large that it fed itself, but it has not changed the lethal nature of Nuclear Energy. So those who were making nuclear bombs in Russia became employees of CERN and with the awesome profits of its military contracts and cheap but risky energy, the nuclear industry marketed itself as the clean source of non-polluting gases and paid awesome amounts to the ‘global warming scare campaign’ to sell his plants. Now the nuclear industry was to discover the meaning of it all with the biggest bang for the buck ever achieved and it was going to save the Earth from the warmer summers that would come and release huge tracts of land in Russia and Canada for wheat supply.
Again, as in the case of Mr. Weinberg’s ‘(e)sc(h)atologic’ particle from toilet to God, the biggest menace for the environment became the liberating, cleanest energy that would save us all from ice-cream consumption on longer summer days.
Anti-truths and newspeaks – the zeitgeist of the day.
Goebbels’ the inventor of political marketing, an extremely intelligent guy who designed parades, uniforms and converted the svastika of Buddhism into the symbol of Nazism knew better. The brain is imprinted by memes and the best meme is the anti-truth: ‘the bigger the lie the most likely people will believe it’. Since the brain enters into a short-circuit when you change from truth to antitruth. So from God back to toilet is a difficult jump; and from clean energy to radiation even more. You have to see it happening with your own eyes, as it has been the case of Fukushima.
And so mankind will not believe the risks of CERN unless it kill us all and yet then it will be too late. God is after all the absolute truth, how can be God ‘Weinberg’s toilet’? (for the curious mind, the name was given by Sheldon because the particle was an ad hoc invention that broke all laws of science – bosons by definition cannot be scalar, without spin; it does also require a negative mass to exist; and a field that permeates the entire Universe never seen – but it allowed Mr. Weinberg to solve some equations that didn’t match, and so instead of having common sense and consider that the equations were wrong, it brought the particle and the result was so ugly that Sheldon told him, it is like a toilet, you need it but you never show it to people, you keep it closed in the closet; where indeed the Higgs should be store)… Ah, but since we never will find a false particle, we shall have always an excuse to build a stronger accelerator, spend more money and declare that we didn’t find the Higgs, because we needed more energy, till we indeed make a stable black hole that blows us all).
I am too cynical for your taste? Perhaps, but remember the British said truth has 4 levels, truth, irony, sarcasm and mordacity… When the obvious truth doesn’t penetrate the ‘believer’, one tends to go up the ladder of truths. Somehow they quench your angst.
Take this example of another anti-truth for the money: in the labor field we compete NOT with other humans but mainly with machines, blue collar robots and white collar PCs, which are throwing us from jobs as they rise the ‘productivity’ of companies, but this is not told. We are the ‘people’, we are the ‘best’, we are ‘number ones’, we compete, we are the ‘productive people’. When a factory like a recent one created by Panasonic makes 1 million sets of TVs with a single operator, he is the superman that produces the 1 million machines not the robots.
So everybody thinks competition in economics is good because it improves the quality of our ‘supermen’.
Moreover, Darwin said that members of the same species must love each other because the species is what fights for survival. But this became the antitruth of social darwinism in politics (Nazism) and capitalism in economics: we must fight with the members of all other human groups for political and economical power because that is the law of Darwin.
The antitruth trick always works, and so Orwell took it to define ‘newspeak’, the ministry of war would be called the ministry of love. He missed but not so much, now it is called the ministry of defense. And the ministry of peace and human rights, which are the reasons why we bomb children with predators in Afghanistan. But nobody has masterminded the newspeak of death like CERN and the nuclear industry. Everybody jumped in the wagon. If you ask the people around, the biggest problem on Earth is NOT robotic weapons, stricken poverty, the end of democracies masterminded by an elite of financiers and credit agencies that tumble nations when they do not obey the laws of extreme capitalism – you don’t need to send CIA operatives anymore, Moody’s and Goldman can do it alone – witness Portugal, a nation which was healthier than England, but social-democrat.
Ah but you have that wonderful word: ‘democracy’, the government of the people, so you are safe, don’t worry be happy, you are the government, you put a paper in an urn every 4 years, so a guy that will never be accountable for his broken promises can go to the parliament and put his hand to corporations in the plutocratic world we live in. Since the politico’s and judiciary job is not so much to govern but as we learned in this case to act as placebos of social power, when basically once elected they must pander without the rights to print money (deficit zero laws) to corporations and bankers to whom they sell their laws. And so CERN has the European politicos on his side, as the flagship of multiple technological corporations and TEPCO has the government of Japan as its P.R.
TEPCO, a free citizen of Japan Inc.
I visit Japan and filmed the ceremony in honor of the lost souls of Hiroshima. I went to the museum and saw the suffering faces of those who still remember. But the government of Japan doesn’t seem to learn from its mistakes. All has changed to remain the same. In this excerpt from the film quantum roulette we show the beautiful ceremony and museum in honor of the victims of Hiroshima. But the past is easy to remember. What about the future victims of Fukushima?
So back to Japan and why TEPCO will delay for months the admission of this accident, provoking thousands of radiation victims: Tepco is just a citizen of the FMI system, whose purpose is to feed machines with electricity at the minimal cost and to that aim it ‘eliminates’ the human life cost. But all this is done with digital numbers so Tepco ‘human enzymen’ don’t suffer much doing it.
We, humans, are always a ‘cost’ for a corporation, which works with a ‘syntactic equation’ proper of the ‘values’ of money that exchanges humans for pieces of gold since the beginning of the FMI complex: man=price=object is the economical equations of all monetary transactions. Man has a price which is a salary and the salary is a negative price, a cost for the corporation.
On the other side there is the object which the company reproduces and has also a price, but a positive price, its sale is a profit for the corporation. So all corporations discount humans (today substituted by blue collar workers, called robots and white collar workers called PCs) and help their machines. And this is good, you are told by the ideologies of capitalism, mechanism and nationalism that make you a slave of the machines that substitute you, the money that enslave you for a price and the weapons that kill you cyclically in times of war when top predator machines consume humans instead of humans consuming machines. Now in times of peace nuclear weapons do not consume Japanese, Japanese consume the electricity of nuclear weapons… But things have not changed that much; only your brain is much better imprinted with the memes of the FMI complex. So you are happy. You are part of Japan Inc. look at those Toyotas, never mind you live in a place not much bigger and a Kobe filet mignon cost more than a computer. Resources must be spent in producing PCs not meat, electricity for machines, not sushi. This is progress. This is what you wish and want, little piece of the FMI complex and its most eastern part, Japan Inc.
I was in Japan giving lectures on complexity when I chaired ISSS Duality science (before the chair was canceled after suing CERN, but this another story). It was the Tokyo Technological Institute and I saw the Japanese of the post-war. They thought they had changed their national spirit because they have moved from doing weapons to doing machines, and they were advancing the robotic age. They didn’t realize they had not changed at all. They still worshiped machines more than life, only of a new kind. And they were being sacrificed to and by their company-mothers. They had little rights. The old Zaibatsus existed in a disguised manner. Tokyo power had 40% of the electricity of the nation. Mitsubishi, Mitsui, Sumitomo now participated by the American plutocracy and divided in smaller corporations however worked together with a single obsession: to evolve the best machines.
And so the answer to the impossibility of Fukushima’s burial is obvious. Japan Inc. is competing with Korea and US and Germany for the top notch in the high priesthood of Nuclear industries, accelerators, techno-machines and could not recognize a mishappening of the size of Fukushima, and so the truth has to be buried, sacrificing future lives 10 days in the road, by denying the seriousness of the incident.
Fukushima must be ‘cured’ and the people around must die in 10 years from radiation, when nobody is on the news, so we ‘solve’ the little mishap and can carry the reproduction of new nuclear plants. This is a given, a non-spoken truth that will continue sending workers to radiation, maintain in the perimeter between 15 and 30 miles, half a million people exposed. It will radiate fish on the sea, which accumulate heavy metal in their organisms.
The press has already profited for the scary campaign and now it will appease the sheeple and convince them this was an accident. What the press has never said is that this was not an accident, the tsunami didn’t cripple the plants. The plants merely lost electricity for a few days, and without electricity a plant radiates, heats and explodes. So the accident is easy to repeat as earthquakes 9-scale, if CERN is not causing them, will not happen often but black outs, loss of electricity, might happen in a myriad of plants being built around the world. And that larger view is this one in a nutshell:
The humane Japan, once more sacrificed.
I was also in Sendai, a touristic zone for the connoisseur that wanted to flee the Financial-Military-Industrial Complex with its 70 million ant-workers, coming out of the subways in white and black at 7.50 pm. Within 10 minutes all were in their cubicles. Their company-mothers were asking them a sacrifice that summer: they were sweating at work without air conditioned to save more money to their owners, but they were told this was to reduce global warming, a campaign paid by the Nuclear Industry, the placebo that hides the more pressing problems of the evolution of robotics that throw us from jobs and nuclear weapons and predators that will kill us when the FMI complex becomes truly a biological ecosystem of machines that has displaced man as man displaced mammals from mother-earth.
Yes, Sendai was charming: small wood houses and small lots of nicely arranged farming; fishermen villages. All that was gone, but the sacrifice was not enough. Now the Sendai people must die as the bewildered sheep always does, happily obeying their masters, believing the FMI complex cares for them. But the function of Japan is not to care for his people but to evolve the robotic r=evolution. We made bodies of machines in the XIX c., heads of machines in the XX c. (ear=mobiles, chips=brains, eyes=cameras) and now we are putting them together in the III Industrial R=evolution of robots. And suddenly the meaning of the FMI complex becomes clear: a global organism that reproduces machines with its 3 physiological systems – the nervous/informative/monetary system that gives orders to all the components of society, with salaries, prices, bribes; the energetic/digestive/weapons systems that kills life and the ‘reproductive systems’ of increasingly automated company-mothers of air, sea and land machines, which imitate life in metal.
Japan Inc. is at the head with Korea of the most advanced organic robots and they will use both, solar energy and nuclear energy to become autonomous; they will consume the eyes of Sony and the chips of Toshiba and the iron of Mitsubishi and Honda will assembly the new citizens of Japan Inc. which are making obsolete their workers. This is happening, will happen during the XXI century guided by the equation of productivity imposed by corporations: productivity = capital/labor. So as we fire more workers and put more robots productivity rises. And this is the future: a world in which humans are obsolete, productivity rises, labor disappears and so we need 2 things to keep labor happy:
– A matrix of fictions handled by 3-D virtual realities, cheap processed food that seems more and more like what we feed to our animals.
– And methods to liquidate peacefully with just wars, invisible radiation, future terminators and other machines of the singularity age, the rebels.
Japan is also at the head of this process. And Fukushima leads the way. The FMI complex has though an attached, secondary system, a relic of the old good times when humans were building truly human super-organisms, called Gods, (networks of DNA-believers with the same code of love that shared energy and information among them as cells of the body do); or civilizations or cultures. That was Japan in the Edo times that you can still glimpse at Kyoto. No longer. Now the simplex, attached to the FMI complex of Japan Inc. are a group of clueless politicians who work for corporations not for the Japanese people.
And yet since the Japanese, even those perfectly indoctrinated working at TEPCO are still human, we can expect, as Fukushima keeps radiating and the wishful thinking of TEPCO becomes more hopeless, a certain amount of the population, today still puzzled by the infantile methods of ‘saving’ our 10 billion $ a piece plants and the mass-media propaganda that hails the sacrifice of TEPCO workers, ‘the 50 of Fukushima’, so TEPCO makes money, its stocks grow and the plutocrats who think to run the show but merely parasite the FMI complex and all of us, get fatter.
At certain point I hope people will protest about the pouring of water that becomes radiactive and falls to the ocean, the cesium 137 that lives 30 years and will accumulate in hamachi, saba and sake…
As today all what is expected of the Japanese people is to die for Japan Inc. with order, Bushido spirit and quiet silence for years to come, so Fukushima doesn’t break the unrelentless pace of extinction of life in this planet, the natural goal of the FMI complex hidden in its equations of profit and productivity.
The false ideologies of a non-human future that will not go away.
This is the big picture nobody wants to talk about. We are self-centered people and so we cannot, will not, wish not to see the obvious: we have become slaves of our machines of measure (scientists) of war (nations) and of profits (corporations and the money they invent in financial e-derivatives and use to cre(dit)ate a reality made to the image and likeness of their machines). We are terraforming the Earth and we are NOT the future of the Metal-Earth we are creating. And this is taboo; because what needs to be reformed is our entire civilization, one in which we run towards a goal that is plainly speaking the extinction of life, but we run like horses do, toiling without distraction, with our eye-lateral vision closed. In the Orwellian animetal farm we live all is so complex that cannot be even understood by those who have a limited part in the construction of the whole.
And at the summit of it all there are 3 ideologies that cannot be disputed (yes i repeat this, because this is how today ‘truth’ is imprinted, no longer by reason but by repetition, following the first master of modern mass-media, Mr. Goebbels’ minister of propaganda and radio of the 3rd Reich: if a lie is repeated many times people will believe it). And that is how your ‘truths’ have been imprinted on you, repeated ad eternal, so you believe in:
– Mechanism, the belief that the Universe is NOT an organic system and man is NOT made to its image and likeness, but that machines are the measure of all things and the meaning of knowledge. On top of this ideology seats CERN with its ultimate weapon and machine of measure. And so nobody during the Fukushima crisis has even wondered about CERN as part of the Nuclear Industry – never mind unlike Fukushima, CERN might irradiate 7 billion human beings – the entire sheeple of the FMI-complex.
Indeed, CERN is the summit of mechanism. And this is sacred. We must not think that man is the measure of all things – that is subversive thought. Those ideas have always been ‘negative’ for the industrial evolution of machines – the worldly profession of physicists. We must all believe in the FMI complex, in the energy of machines that now are feeding even in agricultural goods (ethanol), rising the price of human food. So we will worship CERN’s bigbangs and Tepco’s nuclear plants. Imagine that Fukushima workers think their lives are more important than saving 10 billion $ plants for Tepco. That could be the beginning of a serious r=evolution. Imagine that a worker of Fukushima burns himself in front of Tepco’s headquarters as the Tunisian hero did. That could spark a Japanese awakening.
– Capitalism, the belief that we should NOT create an economic ecosystem in which machines are our slaves, and the language of social power, money, is produced NOT by their company-mothers but by our governments, freely elected, hence used to reproduce and promote the welfare goods of biological nature that cater to our natural drives (our biological food, housing, health-care, culture, education, environment, etc.). This is taboo in capitalism, the religion of money for a few on top and the machines they build.
So MONEY, the experts of corporations, called economists, tell us, must be reproduced by financial companies in global stock-markets and then handled to companies of machines and used to evolve and re=produce them. That will make the free citizens of the free market, corporations, happy.
The rest of society however must earn their salary and work as part-time slaves (an improvement over the first gunboat corporations for which all were full-time slaves).
So we, happy slaves of capitalism, pass deficit-zero laws and our beloved governments must extort money from us through taxes.
– Nationalism, the belief that we are NOT the members of the same species that must love each other and evolve together, to create a paradise on Earth, a sustainable planet, a world in which humans would be eternal, but we must compete between us, and kill each other, reproducing the best machines – always weapons, because we have different cloths with primary colors called flags, and for those painted cloths we must sacrifice ourselves.
This is Japan Inc today. Japan doesn’t compete with weapons, and so we think it is a peaceful, loving country. It is not. It just changed the machine. Now it competes with Korean Robots and German cars but still doesn’t allow other humans to enter their country. In the Tokyo subway, they move out from you because, as we all know, foreigners smell bad. They might be polluted. Let us then breathe the clean air of Fukushima without humane smells.
And so when you add capitalism+nationalism+mechanism, you get the Japanese XXI century frame of mind.
Japn is developing robots to help the elderly not to pay a much better filipino care-taker. Japan my friend deserve Fukushima because after Hiroshima it didn’t learn anything. Their samurais changed from making weapons to make machines and their bewildered herd followed the dictum of Samurais: ‘a Japanese (peasant) is like a soy seed: the last squeeze gives more juice’.
The Orwell+Huxley world.
The world we live in masterly combines the happy brave new world of Huxley thanks to the egotrip, emotional fog and visual hypnotism of big brother Tv-smiley and the real side of the electronic age: surveillance cameras, ‘splendid little wars’ for profit and evolution of robotic weapons and censorship of dissident humanist thought, steppenwolves without voice beyond blogs like this one. Where this path will take us is obvious to all still thinking humans except the elites that profit most from money, weapons and machines. So our automaton leadership will not create a sustainable world and live the day, believing in the myths and ego-trips they created for the mass. Because corporations create machines & weapons, top predator versions, so a tank is an armored car and a terminator a military robot, it has been easy to disguise the dangers of the Nuclear weapons Industry, its plants and accelerators, with newspeaks of ‘civil uses’. But the naked fact – that our weak bodies cannot tolerate the energy of CERN’s big-bangs and black holes and Fukushima radiation – will stay and bring the foretold consequence of all weapons: death to Japan Inc. and the Earth inc unless those industrial plants are cancelled NOW.
The last squeeze is death; and so those who will die at Fukushima, instead of sitting around TEPCO headquarters, asking for the burial of the Plutonium Reactor, will become the new soy seeds, ‘examples’ of citizenship that ‘endure’ the last squeeze without protests, like good cattle must always do in the Anim(et)al Farm.
Ah, of course, the newspeak of our heroes will be remembered. The 50 of Fukushima, by now irreversibly dead into the future, so TEPCO stock-holders regain soon their 50% of price of shares lost, but climbing fast, might even get a memorial. TEPCO will ensure with the death of Sendai people that its nuclear plants keep alive and in good health the machines of Japan Inc. And Toyota, now building hundreds of thousands of pre-assembled homes, will plant them around Fukushima soon. And in a couple of years the ban will be lifted, to show the world the radiation is healthy enough to keep the Japanese living for a decade or so, when they can die as the silent soy victims they had always been.
Then we will have the IAEA telling us like it did at Chernobyl that only 50 died (the official toll of Chernobyl, 56, must not be overcome). Of course the IAEA doesn’t count cancer victims because like the black holes at CERN, when and if they kill us all, cannot be proved by absolute evidence of cause and effect.It might be a black hole coming from mars; the 200.000 new statistical cancer victims around Chernobyl a decade latter might have taken too much sun… They were ignored. We must expect that in Japan the new Hibakusha will not even be mentioned. And certainly the 7 billion potential victims of CERN in 2014, when they make perhaps black holes, will never be mentioned
Time will prove me right in both issues, unfortunately for all the victims of Fukushima as per all the victims of CERN – mankind. How can i say this? You might wonder. How can i affirm a doomsday without crying? The answer is that perhaps, like the Japanese, humane farmers and fishermen who were a happy lot, making ceramics already 10.000 years ago, before the first warrior hordes of Koreans invaded them, I have suffered angst about this issue for so long, I have confronted the ideologies of eviL=anti-life memes with so little results that at a certain point, my organism rejected more suffering, adapted to the circumstances, acknowledged death. Unlike the Japanese sheeple though I will not believe ever in flags, money and machines.
IFew people know that the present industrial process of automated assembly lines was not invented by Ford, but by the pig slaughterhouses of Chicago, from where Ford got his inspiration.
We humans are still the knives that cut the pigs of Gaia and kill nature, but we shall soon trade places with the machines that will cut us into pieces, or blow us from mother Earth. And with all my organic wisdom, there is nothing i can do, only with words. Because people only hears the rattle of swords and engines, cruising at full speed towards doomsday. There will be of course newspeaks till the end to appease the herd and the wolves will dress sheep skins to confuse with the sheeple. So I the steppenwolf will look more threatening even if I try to warn the herd than the disguised cannibals of Gaia. And even when it happens there will be still newspeak and none will be responsible. But the bottom line is that we might all die in the decades ahead of Fukushima radiation or CERN’s experiments with the ‘fire of the Gods’.
If so we will all die in an instant of time. God, not the FMI complex, is after all graceful. It does give us the freedom of killing ourselves, and if we choose so, it makes the moment brief.
Now let us imagine there was another world, a change of paradigm, a shift of values back to the meaning of it all: the values of life over the values of metal, the values of the ethic wor(l)d over the values of money . In that dream there would not even a debate on Nuclear Power. The only reason we have nuclear power is that it is cheaper than any other form of electricity. But we wouldn’t be concerned either with the price of electricity. Nuclear power can kill and so in a sustainable planet it would not be implemented. CERN can kill and so the test of a probably false theory about a particle called the Higgs would be irrelevant. In that dream, it would not be corporations what had become globalized – the FMI complex will be local – what would be globalized would be mankind’s need – a common currency as Keynes wanted with equal deficit for each nation – a 30% of annual deficit would create as much money as corporations do for free in stock markets. Every human would have a minimal salary to promote the production of human, biological goods the poor demand. We would have less machines, evolving much slower, so we could choose which ones are good for man. Each country would produce its own machines so Japan Inc. would not throw millions out of work with its cheap, robot-made cars and electronics. The machine would not be the goal of the human species. This world is gone, for a while existed in a very limited region of northern europe but the memes of capitalism, militarism and mechanism killed it. The chip came and the mind of man started to become obsolete; the cold war ended and capitalism didn’t have to behave with its people, once there was no alternative; the plutocracy took over and attacked all nations with socialist policies, obliging everybody to enter the race for cheap, evolved machines, cheap nuclear energy, iron salaries, perpetual wars in the weapons-dumping cultures of Africa and Islam. ANd of course machines, money and weapons keep evolving, but now the human brain is brain-washed and it is difficult to find a human who is not happy living in the nightmare.
The japanese are happy living the nightmare. They truly think a robot will be a better nanny than an Indonesian woman. They really think it is heroic to sacrifice their lives for Fukushima. The idea that CERN might have provoked the earthquake is risible for them. They are bidding strongly for the new lineal accelerator. Their sense of belonging to mankind is null. The world is more like the Japanese. To look at the future, look at Japan and Korea and Israel, the leading nations of the future. Yes, i know this is not the theme of cerntruth.com anymore. The world is crumbling and I am isolating myself from it. The problem with complex systems is that at a certain moment the system takes over its parts. And that is to me where we are now. The FMI complex and the fictions and ideologies it has established in the minds of mankind is ’emerging’ both at global level and at individual level in places like the war walls of korea and israel, protected by terminators, in complex fluxes of information called e-money that select nations, companies and management by their capacity to destroy faster labor, life and a future for mankind. Fictions will keep most people unaware of the nightmare, but those who lived the dream know better.
A wider view. The machine measure of all things. The FMI complex.
All this of course, is an introduction to the wider view: you live in a system of an enormous complexity called the Financial-Industrial-Military complex, which cares nothing for humans, for democracy, for human rights, for life but you need newspeaks because you are human; and the biggest of all newspeaks is your ego, pump your ego. Here Leo is going to explain you God, and Hawking is the genius that came after Einstein, and since he is sorry folks, i know this is hard but real, a fellow with a neuronal atrophy, if he can be Einstein we all can.
There is where common sense has been lost. We cannot be all, we cannot resist radiation, we cannot see God, we cannot be the Einstein of the XXI century when we have been 40 years in a chair without being even able to write and science has advanced 40 years into the future, which in the days we live is like pre-history of science. But marketing can cover all that with an emotional discourse. So CERN has survived untouched Fukushima and so as the Japanese will die for Japan Inc. we shall all die perhaps for CERN in 2014.
Therefore to understand how those newspeaks have been not only tolerated but widely accepted (and in the case of CERN still are) by both left and right human ego-bubbles requires a deeper, humbler wider analysis of what we humans are becoming and what we are doing with the Earth… through the work of those machines.
Our civilization is in a crash course because it has abandoned his respect for life and man himself and it is building an entire ‘other reality’, of which we are just a part, not the whole. Japanese know how to sacrifice their lives for what they call ‘the body’ of Japan, the ‘whole’, but what they don’t understand is that such a ‘whole’ is no longer a human whole. It is what I call Japan Inc. a key section of the Globalized Financial-Military-Industrial Complex, which we, system scientists study as a growing, organic system of ‘metal’, a truly new brave world, of which we cannot speak in the mainstream press and so it has been better described by science fiction sages. But it is not a fiction, it is real, and it is time for you to understand it, or else you will always be in a fog of ‘accidental tragedies’ that have nothing of ‘accidents’ but are necessary steps in the process of extinction of life in which history is set.
A tale of two trees. The emergence of a new brave world.
A sustainable planet requires to prune the tree of science of its bad fruits, machines whose energy (nuclear devices) or information (robots and A.I.) vastly outperforms our body energy and mental information, or else we will become obsolete and extinct during the XXI century – the age of the singularity . But money and the ego trip of the added power that machines gives us has provoked a global wishful blindness with predictable consequences.
I know you don’t believe me. I know you think and believe the ‘experts’ of the system. This is what you have learned. Those are your memes to keep you happy. And that is right. It is what it is expected of you. Especially if you are a Japanese living close to the death zone. Because the world you live in is NOT a world in which life has an infinite value.
You live in the Financial-Media-Military-Industrial Complex (called in newspeak the Free market, the FMI system in complexity), a perfectly organized system that we complexity theorists study scientifically as an evolving organic system, whose functions, equations, evolution and purpose is crystal clear to us – though all this might be hidden to you.
So if you want to keep happy, don’t worry and don’t read. Probably mankind is beyond salvation. And yet there is a certain beauty in knowing the truth, in being free at least in your mind, even if you are prisoner on the iron jail the FMI complex has built for all of us.
Before II world war, the FMI complex was more obvious. The Matrix of fictions and marketing built today to appease the sheeple was not yet in place. Men had not been devolved into a short attention-span, visual neopaleolithic and ego-centric, anthropomorphic belief on our self-centered position in the Universe.
But now the FMI system controls our information, so we believe what it tells us.
There is no confabulation theory here, but ’emergence’, a concept of systems sciences that discharges full responsibility in the individuals and yet creates the same effect. We humans have become completely dependent on machines – organic systems of metal, more complex than we are, to which we transfer our form and evolve to reach higher degrees of energy and information – to exist and what is far worse, our beliefs have adapted to them subconsciously since the Bronze age in which we discovered the power of weapons.
There was an age that has resurfaced from time to time in religions of love and social, ecological movements in which people were aware that metal, weapons that kill our body, gold that hypnotize our mind and today machines that make us increasingly obsolete were ‘dual fruits of the tree of science’, some good some bad, and by not distinguishing and pruning the bad fruits, such as the nuclear industry, in a ‘free market’ where all goes, in an economic ecosystem in which weapons could predate on man, we would become extinct.
All this wisdom was lost and soon selfish egocentric tribes that relied on weapons to impose their power (Indo-Europeans) or money to hypnotize and slave people (cananeans), came on top of all societies. And for 5000 years they built a matrix of ideological, self-centered fictions which now are ‘common-sense’, the ultimate beliefs.
Those are the ideologies that sustain the Financial-Military-Industrial complex in which we live. They justify all the wrong paths with the same self-centered, myopic, short-span, individualist egotism that corporations, nations, nuclear scientists, bankers – you name it – show in everyday behavior.
Yet behind those ‘selfish memes of metal’ imprinted in our mind, there is still a natural genetic, biological program of love for nature, natural food, clean air, social love – the genetic program of human evolution. Andso a great deal of ‘newspeak’ takes place within the Financial-Military-Industrial Complex and the die-hard ‘believers’ that worship with messianic zeal the evolution of weapons, machines and money as the future of mankind, to appease and convince people that the FMI system cares for us, that corporations serve us, that nations are the supreme meaning of our existence.
And this duality between a brain-washed mankind who adores the wrong memes and a newspeak of caring is specially present in Japan; a nation founded by iron-horse warriors coming from Korea, who became samurais and emperors (but this cannot be said, Japanese are kept in a state of ‘neoteny’, with infantile myths and self-restrain, and worship their ‘traditions’, the jail of their mind; displaying an extreme aggressive-passive behavior to people who might ‘offend’ their sensibilities) and imprinted the happy peasants of the sun-god with an absolute slavery to the master. This samurai today rules japan and its corporations that manufacture machines with a submissive population that likes more their robots than the foreigners, because it has become lobotomized to a point in which so much restrain of otherwise natural feelings and inner emotions, makes them in external behavior closer to their robots than to human beings.
How this is possible is obvious: today the imprinting of our mind with the ideologies that make us love the FMI complex that is killing gaia starts at 3, when you are put in front of a TV. From then on, the ‘nervous system’ of simultaneous indoctrination will imprint your brain with mass-media propaganda and the 3 ‘ideologies’ that make of its 3 networks, the idols of mankind. The financial system has an ideology called capitalism that tells us money is NOT just a system of metal-information (evolved from gold, the most informative atom of the Universe into e-money, data in a computer), but the invisible hand of go(l)d, the meaning of it all, and its values must be respected. To explain you really the meaning of economics I would need an entire web-blog on complex economics which I have, so I will not insist on it.
But the FMI complex is an evolving system independent of man, which merely constructs it. So it has its own organization and goals. It has a global, digital brain called the world stock-market and a type of citizen called the corporation; but in system sciences I prefer to call it by its biological function – so we shall call corporations company-mothers of machines. 90% of the stock-market is dedicated to re=produce those machines, feed them with energy, provide them with information and within that scheme, we humans have only 2 functions: to work=reproduce those machines and to test=consume them.
Every time we work, we reproduce a machine or a part of it, every time we consume it we test it and vitalize it. Because the FMI system is an evolving ecosystem of machines that is terraforming the Earth and substituting us, the super-organism of history as we substituted our fathers, the organism of life. That simple chain is the world you live in, evolving unrelentlessly: Gaia->History->The Metal-Earth (FMI complex).
And only if you are aware of that arrow of evolution we have set in motion, and we back with the 3 ideologies of mechanism (machines are the future of man, not organic systems of metal that substitute and make obsolete human beings), capitalism (money is the language of god, not a language whose values are different from those of words and give zero value to life and maximal value to machines and weapons) and nationalism (the idea that we are different races according to a piece of cloth, called a flag, so we must not love each other and evolve together as members of the same species, but use weapons to come up on top), we can interpret the world as it is, including Fukushima.
