Coronavirus and 5G: How Viruses Are Caused by Our Abnormal Electromagnetic Environment
Eva Bortnick – TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Aug 2020

The answers lie in the new forms and amounts of electromagnetic radiation in our environment since the start of electric power, and its effects on biology. Because electromagnetic energy is invisible, most people think it isn’t there, and unlike the frequencies above light (“ionizing radiation”), governments and industry do not talk about it.

Re-membering the Globe from a Flatland Perspective
Anthony Judge | Laetus in Praesens - TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Aug 2020

Reconciling in 3D the Vitruvian Archetype with Sports Ball Curves – The speculation here is that the long-admired (and much-reproduced) Vitruvian Man, as famously depicted by Leonardo da Vinci in 1490, could be seen as apparently reinforcing a two-dimensional worldview — even though it is interpreted as implying and exemplifying what could be considered as a vital perspective on proportions in their more integrative global sense.

Black Lives Matter: Resisting the Propaganda of Status Quo Defenders
Roy Eidelson - TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Aug 2020

5 Aug 2020 – First came the unjustifiable police killings of Black Americans. Then came the batons, the pepper spray, the tear gas, the flash-grenades, the helicopters, the armored vehicles, and the rubber bullets.

Hiroshima Spring
Gary Corseri - TRANSCEND Media Service, 10 Aug 2020

In the Twentieth Epoch of Love

the bone at the heart of will,
the snake in the garden of Love;

Theoretical Note: John Maynard Keynes vs. Milton Friedman

The thesis of this note is that what is most important about Keynes was that he called attention to staggering features of the basic structure, namely the chronic insufficiency of effective demand and the chronic insufficiency of the inducement to invest. What is most important to extrapolate from Keynes survives the falsification of some of his empirical claims.

A True Intelligence Assessment, For Once!
Naresh Jotwani – TRANSCEND Media Service, 3 Aug 2020

So as long as one is articulate, persuasive, photogenic, assertive and well-networked – what one says does not matter. The truth value of a narrative does not count. What counts is only the result: Which narrative ‘looked like it carried the day’? That explains the 24×7 yakety-yak. In such an environment, rational debate is not possible. And what happens if rational debate fails? Conflict, what else?
