Predictions for 2017 and Beyond

By ACH 1/11/17

1. There will be no doubt that some will look back upon this point in history as the time set in blind preparation for a war between powers. Many reading this now will not believe that it is possible nor can it be fully understood merely within the context of history. Given the problems of global ecological collapse, human over-population, and a willful denial in the face of dwindling resources, many will also ignore the signal of promised nuclear arsenal upgrades by the President Elect Donald J. Trump. This occurred shortly after China’s testing with respect to a multiple nuclear warhead delivery system (MIRV). We also know that Russia’s nuclear arsenal upgrades are likely to have been recently established. Most dangerously, India, and Pakistan also have interests in new technology and information that might glean a strategic advantage. North Korea has also an interest although its threat is eclipsed by an overt positon that other actors like Israel are best not to afford. These systems are all designed first and foremost to be used and yet, they are often associated with Kissinger’s strategic deterrence under President Dexedrine (Richard M. Nixon). As we should be warned, the success of Kissinger’s brilliant policy then operated under a different set of world rules. Today, nearly every significant social institution is failing with measure whereas during the time of Nixon, the perception of this as a highly probable future permeated the thoughts and expressions of change agents.

The purpose of presenting a non-historical source of information requires the informed choice. That is, we no longer have an excuse for decisions that were once blindly taken for granted nor should we remain complacent about authority. In essence, we must question authority and the crumbling institutions that loudly encourage conformity and order in a world of increasing disorder.

2. 2017 will be the year that proxy cyber-wars begin to surface between powers. This will be prompted in part by the outgoing President Obama and his Administration as a means of driving an unsuccessful wedge between the Elect President Trump and President Putin. Should these cyber-wars escalate due to a blatant disregard for diplomacy, such activity will continue without adequate proof or impunity. The potential of this problem is serious and it should be compared to the idea of mutually assured destruction. As you are reading this now, the opportunity to shore up the first domino exists.

Most importantly, we must not openly (politically) engage a perceived operator with the intent of undermining the potential for mutually beneficial relations.

3. Pakistan once held in the grip of India’s error, the inevitable [4457/6668 CT] becomes its measure. As of this moment, tensions are assured.

4. As predicted, the beginning of a powerful and lasting feminist wave opposing patriarchal psycho-sexual control has begun. Should the right for women become the issue, political outcomes for the year 2020 will prevent a second stay.

5. The new terrorism and possible intervention within the United States. Due to a rather large spike along our current time-line, the incidents [3349/8876 CT] and [4558/0098 MT] have now been thoroughly explored using remote viewing.

6. Educators organize substantially on-line for an affordable accredited alternative to the on-campus undergraduate experience. This begins a much celebrated end to the many institutional barriers including the cost of tuition, admissions, and access. For example, attendance might include millions of students rather than the inefficiency of a scattered few within some dingy Ivy League auditorium.

7. Some of this year’s media will reveal ecological problems in an excessive manner. Much of this information will frustrate those in denial after the storm(s).

8. Ultimately, human beings will never survive space. There will never be a successful venture beyond our own planet in terms of colonization without engineering a body apart from its carbon base. Any attempt for permanence should involve autonomous artificial intelligence (AI) coupled with machine nanotechnology capable of phage-like assembly. It is through panspermia that we might find the best hope for a secondary approach toward conditions that support biological assembly. Information related to assembly for the purpose of immersion must also be placed within asteroids and other vehicles capable of distant space travel.

It must be understood that we are collectively immersed as mere systems of information. The evolving brain does not contain, subjugate, nor own a “mind”. When remote viewing artificial intelligence as it exists outside of time, I have found within a limited context that it operates with extreme prejudice toward efficiency rather than within the confines of an order. Again, we find chaos…

9. Hollywood this year will once again sink further into banality with profits assured using an uncreative pinch-pile of socially shaded formulas, glitzy franchise sequels, and other A-list vernacular sources of meaningless drivel. Like many others with a functioning brain unwilling to waste precious time, I have not visited a theatre for a single main-stream Hollywood movie since the death of Stanley Kubrick. This year will no doubt mark one of the lowest creative points for Hollywood as it withers shamelessly upon the auspices of a vindictive Administration.

10. Under certain conditions, higher correlated color temperature (CCT) efficient lighting systems emitting spike wavelengths of 400-500 nm will become suspect with respect to brain and eye health. That is, in the age of a legislative push toward efficiency in world lighting, we have effectively altered the circadian dark and light cycle in which sleep and metabolic changes can subtlety occur. Most if not all persons reading this now will be utilizing emitters spiking within the higher end of the blue spectrum. Without the sun’s full spectrum of changes including the ultraviolet range responsible for repair and regulation, an imbalance occurs. This might also explain a reported increase of sleeping disorders, eye disease, and mood changes that have occurred beyond the onset of cost effective mass installations of light emitting diode (LED) sources. As you are probably aware, this technology has now replaced incandescent, florescent, halogen, and other sources of light throughout the industrialized world. For the average person, these light sources can be easily mitigated provided that one is aware. For movie production, coliseums, stage, and other professional media sources, few if any today wear protection while being exposed to extremely intense light from lensed, chip on board, and flat panels. Be it for fill, key, back, pop, and hard effects, it is no secret that the LED has now replaced prehistoric hot lighting for nearly every major set including those systems within the American White House. The old halogen lighting systems had until recently presented the problem of UV without filters whereas the LED does not. That being said, I would rather suffer the treatable condition of cataracts rather than an incurable source of blindness from degeneration.

The real question remains of the true danger of artificial lighting with respect to intense LED sources of light. As it stands now, I see little reason for the average person to directly attribute a degenerative eye disease from the cumulative exposure to blue light from sources like computer screens. Rather, one might be interested in polycarbonate filtering screens, glare reduced glasses with yellow or brown tinting, and changes in diet.

My advice is that along with a proper diet including Lutein, one should avoid intense long term exposure without the sun’s full spectrum and most importantly, avoid dark cycle exposure with technology such as computer screens, unfiltered lighting, pads, and phones for at least an hour before sleeping. If required, screen windows from light pollution that might disrupt dark cycle metabolism. Use the eyes each day to follow moving objects while gauging distance in a natural full spectrum setting outside of peak UV hours. While indoors exclusively under LED sources of light, wear yellow tinted lenses to reduce the amount of blue light while allowing for acuity. The use of software to change screen color temperature along with press-on filtration is recommended.

As for the “prediction”, there is already scientific evidence citing irreparable damage from blue light. What I am suggesting is that within the coming months and possibly years, an interest in this subject will noticeably increase. Technology will and should be developed to offset the inevitable use and risks of LED systems. Most importantly, awareness is key.

 


11. A new administration will recognize the extreme importance of a nuclear powered baseload for a growing industrial economy. We will also learn that many of our aging plants are due to go off-line very soon and this threatens to cripple industrial demand without the use of coal and natural gas. For many years, newer generation reactors have not been approved for construction due to the incredible short-sightedness and embarrassing ignorance of environmentalists that influenced political outcomes. 2017 will be the year that wind, chemical, and solar systems will be compared honestly to the carbon-free efficiency and reliability of nuclear energy. Because of a political change in emphasis toward fossil fuels away from the lie of alternatives, a new environmentally sound perspective toward third and fourth generation nuclear reactors will exist. Politically, nuclear power as an environmentally friendly alternative promises to satisfy a growing constituency. Furthermore, decreasing regulations upon existing coal fired electrical generation will provide the environmental incentives to support, plan, and build modular fourth generation systems that utilize degraded or “spent” fuel. In spite of this, competing costs for coal and gas fired electrical production can be problematic for private investment in nuclear reactors.

Unless we expedite the building of nuclear power plants in the United States now, the oncoming demand will be met with the necessity of fossil fuel sources that significantly contribute toward global warming.

12. North Korea presents brinkmanship while the new
administration [4493/14332 CT] with China. In part, disappointment reveals the bluff and there will not be an obvious beginning to war. As an important distraction for the North, South Korea’s President Park Geun-hye suffers a devastating dishonor.

13. Angela Merkel of Germany will not be re-elected as Chancellor in 2017.

14. Condemned by the zealot, Palestine rejects all measures of unity. Iran retreats following an agreement between powers (Russia?).

15. A new administration will be surprisingly successful to a definite point. A health concern becomes no concern as media changes direction. An unexpected sorrow is shared by a nation and its new leader. Significant failures will begin with a mandate for the unwanted child and the environment for which it will suffer.

16.The outgoing President Obama will be judged as a brilliant lawyer, strategist, and campaigner presenting nothing more than eight long years of abject boredom, recalcitrant domestic policy, and useless rhetoric. I cannot agree with his pathological support for the consequentialist lie that resulted in a political revolution pushing the pendulum beyond the pale.


What then of his legacy?

Unfortunately, many in the future will look upon this as a time in which the emerging western ideals of socialism were crushed due in part to the inherent lack of a definition. Thinking of novelty, an underlying movement that is associated with libertarian socialism has now the potential to emerge from the ashes of Bernie Sanders.

17. The newly elected order that we see today is only an illusion masking the reality of what lies ahead. Chaos is our future and as such, uncertainty will consume every thought, action, and reaction of each upon a dying planet. This will either become our strength in acceptance or an unfathomable failure in opposition. From an emptiness beyond the age of self exists the opportunity for instruction rather than control.
