https://news.sky.com/story/decline-in-fertility-will-see-global-population-shrink-triggering-radical-shifts-in-economic-power-report-12028364

 

It's all over the news today and basically overpopulation has been killing the planet for decades (too many cars per household, excessive Greenhouse gases, can't get a dentist, artificial housing-shortages and subsequent building/ruination of the Green Belt ,traffic congestion etc)  but now apparently the increase in women's empowerment is having profound effects on the fertility rate.   This to me is justice, a tipping of the scales and a fitting indication of the incoming Aeon of Maat ....probably.

I read that yesterday. It's a "prediction," based on 5th ray scientic data and trends. I have personally been predicting this for (synchronisticly) decades. The scientists and the news writers get paid for releasing this prediction. I get nothing, which is the goal.

Yes, more wage slaves for soon-to-automated jobs. That's what we need. 

I don't know any more about economics than the next guy, but I do know that the more complex a system, the harder it is to predict its future. That's why I steer clear of articles like this one.

As to the proposed course of population decline, that too isn't a sure thing. You may think I'm silly for saying so, but the dystopian cyberpunk future isn't so far away. The technology of the artificial womb, ironically in its infancy, could do away with old aeon notions of reproduction and its inherent limitations. Quantum supremacy, neural networks, genome editing (and germline engineering, more importantly), technogaianism, these are but some of the Horian variables which cast a large shadow over anyone trying to see the future from frameworks built in the last aeon.

Or not, who knows. More pollutin' for me, either way.

This is true (complex = variable). The article (I read at BBC) is a fairly well-researched  trend and, you know, the docs are all predicting things about viral trends, and what will happen, will happen, regardless of the predictions. But this one fits into my prophecy, so I'll give it a B+. I believe this is what the sophisticants call confirmation bias. Yes, that's it. "Birth. Incessant Birth!" said the Buddha.

I confess, but I don't repent.

Not at all. Nothing is a sure thing, so you'd be silly not to say that. The only sure thing is when you're in charge of "fixing" the outcome. In such a case, you "put the fix in" and manifest your reality; you are not making things up, and of course you'll have a bet running on the side.

I understand politicians and police agents are very good at this.

Is this anything like Crypto-Vedantism?

Or was it Hypno-hedonism?

Now we have to get Sirius. Said Art Room is a feature of many (many) science fiction novels, and some of those novels have a way of being prophetic.

The Cosmic Legends tell us that we (us) were created in some artificial manner and seeded onto Earth, with self-replicating abilities, by praeterhuman intelligences, who were called in some old book, The Elohim. Read Genesis from that viewpoint and certain unprovable possibilities arise out of the void.

Disregarding accusations of Deep State or Black Lodge, or Ceremonial Magic: The corporate overlords will attempt to install automation as much as possible. The individual seller on eBay or Amazon just wants to list the ad, have the company ship it, and sit back doing nothing (unpleasant. Free Money! If you can "fix" it right, it can work.

Meanwhile, nobody works and the Borg runs everything. Skilled hackers make more money than poor yogis like me. The masses are in trouble (unless they biologically depopulate as a natural reaction to the prevailing frequencies.

The weak point is the growing universal dependence on computers and satellites to run and coordinate everything. It is unlikely that certain major powers do NOT have EMP-capable rockets standing by ... somewhere. One good ElectroMagnetic Pulse, from a bomb, a well-aimed solar flare (one hit Earth in the mid-1800s), or a radiated beam from a dwarf neutron star called Elohim, would (theoretically) knock the world civilization back into the pre-industrial, or early industrial age. In an instant. No computers. No electricity.

Manly P. Hall, who was shaped like a pear due to some disease I cannot remember, sat in his great high-backed throne/chair and delivered the only "sermon" I remember. He spent an hour describing Trades, and ended with, "That's why every initiate should have a Trade."

He was referring, of course, to some practical, vocational, useful thing you can do - that other people need. He cited a King, which one I cannot recall, who prided himself on the fact that he could shoe a horse.

I advocate the principle that everyone should cultivate a useful Trade, even if you're a CEO and it's just your hobby. The theory of a digital world and an EMP is so very pre-industrial.

the Horian variables which cast a large shadow

You have painted a masterpece of potentiality, and I have tried to add a little more variation, but yes, the scientists, or the business dudes, or the military, has already looked into anything you, or I, or anyone else present, have written in this short thread. There are capable science-docs who are just itching to get into genetic modification, cloning, and probably androidism. They are only held in check by prevailing cultural taboos ... which any reasonable plotter would find a way to get around. Mein Gott! They made Dolly the Sheep!

I need to go do a banishing now, so I can sleep without worrying about the future. They say One Day At A Time is good, and I try to meet that schedule.

Like I said this is not some obscure fringe news story it was all over the world media disreputable and reputable.   I just randomly chose that article because the title was quite expressive.

Yay my library! Yay my batteries with my discman with CDs lol. 

Nay no LAShTAL! Nay no random talks with fun correspondents in Ireland, Japan Korea or Uranus. 

Queue: The Postman starring Kevin Costner. I shall write letters I suppose.

Population will not decline, the Third World will always outbreed the First World until they get as depressed as we are. Or something.  Perhaps more likely is a Children of Men scenario where we all go infertile.  But with no Black Jesus to save us.

That's part of the analysis , if you do your research you'll see that Nigeria is apparently going to be a 21st century super-power along with India.

I wouldn't be surprised, I have met a lot of very smart Nigerians, mostly doctors. Same with Indians.

Problem is the field of 'doctor-ing' is getting overcrowded and too expensive for the salaries they expect so here in the states it's mostly PA's or MA's, Physician or Medical Assistants, seeing you.

Imagine that, an African super-power.  That's pretty inspirational considering the history of Africa.

Colour me skeptical though.  Those governments have a history of self enslavement and corruption even before the bad White-ys came and took their stuff. 

I read an essay by an Indian chap about how the Third World needed Colonialism because it made them organised and more successful.  Just see how Tanzania was before and after the British Period.  A marked decline in morals and order. But that's also a bit of a broad brush.

Sorry I know this is your latest "dom's new thread for everyone for discussion for the week", but I can't see the particular connection or relevance to either AC or his work here. 

Someone, "Call the cops  the moderator Shiva"!?  Oh, hang on: it appears he's already posted (quelle surprise!) - but obviously chosen not to wield his authoritarianly truncheon on this occasion...

(At least, "that's what she said!?"),

PA's or MA's, Physician or Medical Assistants, seeing you. 

PAs have the same general privileges as an MD. They must be supervised (indirectly) by an MD. That means the doc reads the patients' files and makes notes. I worked in a very busy clinic staffed entirely by PAs and owned by one of them. He would hire an elderly, retired MD to go over the files. She wrote notes in my files, which was unnecessary because I was/am a primary care practitioner, and we don't need legal supervision.

MAs are medical assistants. They go to school for 6 or 9 months. They don't see you as a practitioner. They help the doc or the PA.

You might have been thinking about the N.P. (Nurse Practitioner. These are Registered Nurses (4 yrs school) who went the extra mile and got a Master's degree. Then they get a license. They are not supervised. They can open their own practice or work for a doc. They do all the basic things a doc or PA can do (not brain or heart surgery). They can issue orders for a medical cannabis permit. They tend to be much more human than most docs.

I am pleased to see you have a ? towards the end, because she never said any such thing. However, your paraphrase is close enough to the original to pass mainstream media standards, so we'll let it stand.

I am disturbed by disorder, so I tend to help out in matters of posting order or protocols for beginners. I have been doing this most of my life. I ran Orders and Campuses, but I was never the owner. I was always the enforcer, but never made the decision about what to do with the problem child.

Threads are supposed to be related to AC, or at least someone or something he wrote about, or knew ... etc. My/our enforcement activities are voluntary. I lied about the pay being good, as there is none. Thus my/our powers are discretionary.

I have warned about off-topic derailing and even vulgar news threads such as this one. I have also participated in off-topic lingo, but I have not started any off-site threads. So it is Dom who must be punished. I will recommend that he talk to Xavier via skype or zoom or similar, 2 hours per day, for six months. Will that satisfy you?

I hereby deputize you with enforcement privileges. A badge is unnecessary as you have already (just now) performed without one. You will be either a secret chief or a secret agent, I forget which.
