I'd wager most of you are familiar with that picture of Klaus Schwab in that bizarre robe. It looks like something out of a sci fi fever dream. Well, it's time for some analysis of the symbolism behind it.



The strange vestments seem to be associated with Kaunas University of Technology (the weirdness of that place we will discuss later and Schwabs connection), but the weird symbols on his dress are from the schools coat of arms.

Now, star motifs are pretty common in heraldry; however, what is not common is the NINE pointed star. This is what is strange. Their website describes it as "the light of science" (red flag)



The nine pointed star is most associated with Bahai. Bahai was supposed to be a religion of WORLD UNITY, synthesizing the main religions of the world into something new. The nine pointed star of Bahai is supposed to represent the supposed 9 major religions of the world

Bahai was basically the first attempt at a globalist religion. Now what has the Bergoglian Papacy been trying to do with the Synod of Synodality, what have the powers that be been trying to accomplish? A new world, globalist religion.

This has always been the goal. Now forget about all of that for a second. Lets now discuss the eight pointed star, one of the most common symbols in Rome, and a symbol on Pope Francis' own coat of arms.




Before we continue, im going to post some of my last substack to get you all up to speed.







Notice the change






Coats of Arms are obviously still important and relevant. Here we have Pope Francis rocking the typical 8 pointed star of Catholicism, while Schwab employing the new 9 pointed star. (do I have to spell it out?)

Also now let me make things a little more clear. In traditional Catholic symbolism, the 8 pointed star represents this: The earth is created in 7 days in Genesis. But in the Catholic symbolic imagination, Christ is the EIGTH day, the finality of the creative process

Thus the eight pointed star, ubiquitous in Papal heraldry, represent the seven days of creation, with Christ as the FINAL eighth day.

So then, what is this NINTH day of Schwabs star supposed to represent???? What trans humanist eschaton is it supposed to portray....



(also before we continue, im not sure if I added a screen cap of it, but you can see that the spikenard flowers of Francis' coat of arms were also originally grapes, alluding to some Dionysian weirdness...)

NOW TO GET EVEN WEIRDER. Something I haven't seen anyone mention. If the star on Schwab's robe is supposed to be from the coat of arms, WHY IS IT INVERTED????




The inverted pentagram always has been seen as a staple of Satanic symbolism. An inverted, satanic global religion, a demonic Bahai. This is what they are unleashing on us

Now lets move on from the star. Time to discuss something from the coat of arms that is more overtly satanic. The bull with the cross upon its head

Id wager most of you are familiar with the jagermeister symbol. And yet id wager most of you aren't familiar with the fact that the alcohol company stole the symbol from an ancient Christian saint.

Saint Eustace was a Roman Pagan soldier who converted to Christianity after seeing a cross appear over the head of a stag. He was martyred for his belief under the reign of emperor Hadrian

The symbolic subversion of the peaceful stag with the martial bull. Alluding also to the pagan mysteries of Mithras

An...interesting deep dive into our friend Klaus's symbolism.

Oh Sh*t, It's REALLY Happening

As the IMF, politicians and private sector discuss the move to Central Bank Digital Currencies, is this all leading to a brighter economic future for ordinary people or social credit system to control your every move? (…it’s the latter)



(because who do you think is helping to push this?)

Farmer Protests - This Is Impossible To Ignore


The takeover is happening - as farmers across New Zealand protest government plans to tax them for the gases that farm animals release, are we seeing yet another example of government bankrupting farmers under the guise of saving the planet?

How World Economic Forum, others are hiding their past ties with FTX


The shocking implosion of the FTX crypto exchange has become an embarrassment for a who’s who among global elites, with some issuing mea culpas — and others apparently scrambling to hide their ties to its disgraced, 30-year-old founder Sam Bankman-Fried.

Web archive sites show that the World Economic Forum — whose glitzy shindig in Davos, Switzerland, is a must-attend for billionaires and world leaders each year — had previously listed FTX as one of its “partners,” touting the Bahamas-based firm as a “cryptocurrency exchange built by traders, for traders.”

Bankman-Fried also was a speaker at Davos last May alongside luminaries such as Google financial chief Ruth Porat and Bill Winters, CEO of the London-based financial giant Standard Chartered. Nevertheless, WEF has since scrubbed any mention of FTX from its website in the days after the crypto exchange filed for bankruptcy.

“FTX was a World Economic Forum partner. In light of last week’s events, their partnership was suspended and they were removed from the Partners section of our website,” a spokesman for the Geneva-based organization headed by Klaus Schwab told The Post on Monday.

According to one WEF insider, Bankman-Fried likely landed on the group’s site because he donated cash to the group, in addition to his upcoming speaking gig.



“World Economic Forum survives on donations from outside organizations and companies that are typically aligned with their mission and politics,” the source told The Post.

The WEF isn’t the only group that has egg on its face from its cheerleading for FTX and Bankman-Fried, whose $16 billion fortune evaporated in a matter of days — a stunning collapse that has elicited comparisons to Lehman Brothers and Enron. Bankman-Fried is under federal investigation.

Photographs circulated online over the weekend showing former President Bill Clinton sitting next to Bankman-Fried on stage — along with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair — at an event in the Bahamas this past April.

The Post has sought comment from Clinton’s office.


Bankman-Fried appeared on stage with former President Bill Clinton and ex-British Prime Minister Tony Blair in the Bahamas in April.

While big financial firms like Sequoia Capital, SoftBank and BlackRock have revealed FTX losses in public filings, insiders say wealthier individuals bought in privately, typically plowing money into FTX through family offices.

“This is like a Madoff situation … almost everyone in tech and Hollywood invested in this thing,” one investor close to FTX told The Post. “Now no one wants to admit to it.”

One insider told The Post that Jan Koum — the Ukrainian billionaire who co-founded WhatsApp and sold it to Facebook for $19 billion in 2014 — bought a stake through his family office. Reps for Koum didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Twitter users promoted a video over the weekend showing CNBC investing maven Jim Cramer touting Bankman-Fried as “the JP Morgan of his generation.” The Post has reached out to Cramer and CNBC seeking comment.

Kevin O’Leary — the “Shark Tank” investor who also admitted he has taken a bath on an FTX bet — posted a mea culpa on his Twitter account over the weekend, telling his 951,000 followers: “As an investor, you will never get it right every time. You will make some mistakes. Sometimes big ones like FTX.”

Tom Brady and now-ex-wife Gisele Bündchen are among FTX’s most recognizable victims. After starring in several TV commercials promoting the crypto exchange, they got an equity stake in FTX that’s now likely worthless. Golden State Warriors basketball star Steph Curry was also given an equity stake in FTX. Curry, Brady and Bündchen were not immediately available for comment.

Elsewhere, Bankman-Fried’s FTX earlier this year collaborated with former White House advisor Anthony Scaramucci’s SALT conference to launch a star-studded cryptocurrency summit in the Bahamas.

“We are thrilled to welcome FTX as SALT’s premier global partner and to launch Crypto Bahamas. Sam and the FTX team are building the most important company in crypto and the financial industry more broadly,” Scaramucci said at the time.

The Salt Crypto Bahamas Conference included the now-infamous scene in which Bankman-Fried shared the stage with supermodel Bündchen to talk about sustainability practices within the crypto sector.

As Bankman-Fried’s estimated fortunate ballooned as high as $26 billion during the pandemic-era cryptocurrency boom, the FTX founder used the windfall to cultivate cozy relationships in media.

Bankman-Fried was an early financial booster for Semafor, the blue-chip news startup co-founded by New York Times veteran Ben Smith and former Bloomberg CEO Justin B. Smith.

The ex-billionaire poured money into Semafor in a Series A fundraising round that also drew contributions from media types such as The Atlantic chairman emeritus David G. Bradley and The Information founder Jessica Lessin.

Semafor mentioned its ties to Bankman-Fried in its reporting on FTX’s abrupt bankruptcy filing last week. The outlet also addressed its dealings with the FTX founder in a story revealing Bankman-Fried wanted to start a competitor to publishing platform Substack, staffed with his “favorite writers.”

“We closed our seed round in May and received all investments in full in USD. While we are monitoring the evolving situation closely, we don’t anticipate an impact on our financial outlook or our business,” Semafor spokesperson Meera Pattni said in a statement.

The Post has reached out to Semafor for further comment.

Bankman-Fried’s family foundation also gave a $5 million grant to ProPublica earlier this year to “support investigations into ongoing questions about the COVID-19 pandemic, biosecurity and public health preparedness.”

In June, Puck News reported that Bankman-Fried was hiring staffers with experience in journalism to advise him on media relations strategy for his pet projects, including future pandemic preparedness. His aides purportedly took meetings with “several newsrooms” on potential nonprofit and for-profit partnerships — all funded by Bankman-Fried.

Bankman-Fried was open about his ambitions to become a political kingmaker — once declaring that he planned to spend a whopping $1 billion in the 2024 presidential election cycle. He later walked back that brazen claim, describing it as a “dumb quote.”

The disgraced executive may have dialed back the extent of his planned political spending, but he was still a major booster of left-leaning candidates and causes during the 2022 midterm elections. He was the Democratic Party’s second-biggest donor, trailing only George Soros.

Bankman-Fried spent an estimated $36 million on political donations during the stretch run — most of which fueled Democrat-tied causes, according to the Financial Times.


Some $27 million went to Protect Our Future, a super PAC backing Democratic candidates committed to pandemic prevention. His spending included a disastrous $11 million investment in the campaign of Carrick Flynn, a first-time House candidate in Oregon who failed to advance past the primary.

Bankman-Fried’s sudden downfall has rankled some within the Democratic Party who expected a major influx of donor cash in the months ahead.

“Sam didn’t live up to his commitments,” one Democratic lobbyist told the outlet.

As for the WEF, its ties with Bankman-Fried extend to his family as well. His aunt, Linda P. Fried, an epidemiologist who serves as the dean of Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health, is listed on the WEF’s website.

In 2012, Linda P. Fried contributed to a WEF-funded study on the aging global population. The Post has sought comment from her.

Why he's even speaking there boggles the mind.

They think that they arleady win,so they could say what they would do with us.
Something like movie villain saing to his caged victim how he would torture him/her to death.

The Metaverse Is NOT Collapsing. Here's Why.

We have a problem.
About half of this is analysis is so flawed as to be completely the wrong way around.

Metaverse is almost certainly never going to become a dominant thing like The Oasis in Ready Player One. Nor will the combination of various different VR worlds.

Why?

Because VR equipment, and quality you gain using it, just isn't that great. The headset is bulky and somewhat uncomfortable (at best), you have to stand up and move around in a real-world environment, the control wand(s) are vastly more limited than hands, etc, etc, etc.

Also, technology can only solve these problems so far, without going into massive costs. Omnidirectional treadmills, especially one with the ruggedness and responsiveness you'd need to keep up with a VR system? That's going to be thousands of dollars just to manufacture, much less install.

By comparison, a decent webcam and microphone is 40-60 dollars, and decently-large wide-screen TVs can be had for about $200. Almost every advantage that a VR environment gives you for meeting people over a distance, a fraction of the cost, and can be used for all the other things a modern screen can be used for.

And this is before we get into people who have nausea issues, people who just don't like the technology, the potential issues with hacking/system interruptions, etc, etc.

There's also the matter of skillset and competency. Using VR technology effectively is a skill, one that takes time to learn, time that could be spent on other things, some people have little or no aptitude for, and others will disdain to develop even if they do. Comparatively, if you're competent with a smartphone or computer (basically mandatory in a modern business environment), you already have the know-how to activate a video conference call, and you conduct yourself the same way you would in a business meeting IRL.

That video basically just looks at the positives, and not at the many reasons why VR rollouts failed in the past, and are probably destined to only ever be a modestly-sized market throughout the future. VR is a good gimmick for some types of games, has some use for virtual tours, and if the technology becomes mature enough and cheap enough, it might develop into a role like game consoles, where many but not all homes have at least one system, but how much use it sees varies massively.

And, of course, that video also ignores the fact that not all jobs are white-collar. You can't install a plumbing, wiring, a furnace, an AC unit in a virtual environment. Even if androids capable of reasonably mimicing the full suite of human physical capabilities come into existence, moving them around would cost the same amount as moving a person, and you again would have the problem of it taking a skill to use them effectively.

All of these problems, better technology can alleviate to some degree. In the long run, technology may be able to outright solve these problems. But not in a time-frame that can rescue the amount of money that Facebook is investing in the Metaverse.


Finally, the single biggest problem with the metaverse, is that it just is not that popular. I'm a Computer Nerd. I hang out with Computer Nerds. I also hang out with book-nerds, have family and friends who are more outdoors-and-hunting types, people into theater, people in different parts of the political spectrum. About the only social strata I don't have social contact with are the 'trendy cool' types.

And I don't know anybody who uses the thing. I don't know anybody who's used Metaverse or a similar service even once. I know people with VR headsets, but they are exclusively used for a few games, and not all that many of them.

Most people simply do not see something like the metaverse adding anything meaningful or substantial to their life.

Discord, Skype, Zoom, the legacy messenger clients, forum boards, conventional video games, conventional voice and video calls, all of these things offer the most important things the 'Metaverse' offers, and most people just are not interested.

Obviously, some people are interested, as the service does get some use, but it looks a lot more like people trying 'the new hot thing' than something that's growing to dominate the market.

The video-maker draws a comparison between the iPhone and preceding pseudo-smartphones like Blackberry, but fails to really follow through on it. Blackberry did the same kinds of things the first iPhone did, but on a lesser tech base, and at a high enough cost to make it prohibitive to most people. The iPhone took off, and very visibly became the new industry standard, forcing other companies to catch up and offer similar products within a timeline of a year or so. Also, the iPhone came out before Apple completely trashed its brand name among techies; Facebook's name has been mud for years now.

Metaverse has done no such thing. It's a footnote to most techies, it has no 'must-have' capability that other platforms aren't offering, it has no quality-of-life upgrade over what people were using before.

There's just no compelling reason for people to want it.


I do agree with the video that a lot of powerful people want to use it as a tool to exert more power and influence over others.. I just don't think it's going to be an effective one, not on the scale big tech is used to operating.

As a straw poll, who here has ever used Metaverse, who has the equipment to use it themselves, and who actually uses it regularly?
