Take my wife, please !

This is a very interesting read! The key to our present and future is in the past! I highly recommend checking out this article and the topic addressed!

West Hunter

There’s a new paper out in Science – ” The genomic history of the Iberian Peninsula over the past 8000 years” .  It discusses genetic change over time, from hunter-gatherer days, the arrival of the Anatolian-ancestry farmers, and the coming of the Indo-Europeans.

The chart above shows what happened when the Indo-Europeans show up. Autosomal steppe ancestry goes from zero to ~40%, but on the Y-chromosome, it goes from zero to 100% over a few hundred years.  As quoted in the New York Times, archaeologists ruled out violence as a possible cause. [ ” I cannot say what it is,”said Roberto Risch, an archaeologist from the Autonomous University of Barcelona, who was not involved in the new studies/ But he ruled out wars or massacres as the cause. “It’s not a particularly violent time,”, he said.

Instead, Dr. Risch suspects “a political process” is the explanation. ]

Everyone’s using “social construct” wrong

I highly recommend reading this article! I find this blog extremely interesting overall! Make sure that you check it out!

Well.

Dr. Seers is close.

A “social construct”–in the context of groups of people–is just a stereotype. We’ll call it an “idealized version.” We learn this idealized version by interacting with many individual instances of a particular type of thing and learning to predict its typical behaviors and characteristics.

Suppose I asked you to draw a picture of a man and woman. Go ahead, if you want; then you can compare it to the draw-a-man test.

Out in reality, there are about 7 billion men and women; there is no way you drew someone who…

The Digital Doghouse – R.I.P. Facebook

I remember how incredulous I was when my numbers outdid establishment guitarists on Facebook. Obviously this made me extremely excited and I saw it as a very strong card to have on my hand. I was proving my potential in terms of commercial appeal. My Q&As were more well attended than establishment musicians who were taking over major instrument brand’s Facebook pages and when I was given a shot at visibility among the major players my numbers were way better than theirs.

I took screenshot after screenshot and sent these to the brands that I endorsed to prove my appeal with “the public“ and felt that nothing could go wrong. This was not based on delusion or wishful thinking but from seeing my actual reach and the reactions from people both online and in the real-world. This made me incredibly excited!

Just posting a picture for fun like the one below received a good response on my page.

I was certainly on to something since people loved what I was doing! And if people love what you are doing then that must surely result in show-biz insiders dying to work with you and your endorsement deals improving, right?

Even in 2017 when I was largely absent due to bad health my like count was pretty good, it even was at the start of 2018, but then all of a sudden something happened to my Facebook.

july 2017 fb

2018 on facebook january

My reach just vanished, followers complained that they did not see my updates anymore, people had no idea that I was releasing a new album, and my Facebook started suffering a slow death.

The fact that we were able to pull off a successful pre-order campaign and had to print up a new batch of CDs before Christmas, sending out these to no less than 19 different countries around the globe can certainly be seen as a bit of a masterstroke with no major press outlet mentioning the album launch and with Facebook (which used to be my number one site) dead and gone.

It certainly looked like digital sabotage to me as it seemed a bit telling that my reach went south when I announced that I was back to work recording my 3rd album. My reach starting going down for the count way before I shared anything from my new release and while my Facebook reach became increasingly horrendous leading up to my album launch I experienced all sorts of strange things online: When Someone Is Messing Around With Your Social Media….

This is how it looks like when Facebook screws you over…

Frustrated  I attended a webinar at the end of last year about Facebook to see if I could catch some valuable information. What I gathered from the whole thing was that you can reach maximum 2% of the people who have liked your page. If you look at this screenshot from late 2018 you can also see that not all comments will be visible anymore on your pictures. Facebook simply filters out compliments and positive feedback so that the interaction seem less than what it is.

Of course this could in part explain why Facebook wasn’t working for me anymore, but I also realised when seeing Facebook’s actual advertising costs that this was the end of Facebook.

Independent artists and small business owners will not be able to pay the sort of fees that Facebook are demanding and if you are interested in reaching young people then Facebook is a dead-end anyway since teenagers have no interest in the site at all.

You start sensing a social media site’s death when there are too many “ghost accounts“ with the latest update being from 2-3 years ago. You can also spot it when people start posting less frequently.

They’ve simply found a new place to hang out.

Which is something that I detected a good while back on Twitter when going through real human profiles.  I felt like I was digitally walking through a ghost-town. Media people and establishment characters still tend to it, but in terms of “the people“ I’ve been under the impression for a while that Twitter’s best days are behind them and I think the same can be said of Facebook.

I hope that new sites will spring up bringing back the organic reach that evened out the playing field between corporate and independent. Only when opportunity is enabled can you have true freedom and diversity instead of a stagnant monopoly which is what is currently happening to the major social media sites.

Users leave sites usually after the youngest players have already abandoned the ship, the pain for independent artists is that they have to build up a presence once again hoping that old fans will remember to follow and that new fans can be easily reached.

 

YouTube Might Be Over! – Article 13.

If you click on the video title & watch it on YouTube’s site then you’ll see links to an EU page where you can find your representatives. I’ve also a linked to an online petition + two other YouTube videos from other content creators who go into more specifics than I do!

This is a very important issue both for those using YouTube and for those of us who produce content!

Thou Shall Not Laugh In Europe – The End Is Nigh For YouTube Entertainment!

The end of YouTube as we know it might be near thanks to the western world’s most notorious party-poopers: The EU.

YouTubers doing covers of other people’s music, game-channels, parody channels, top. 10 lists and independently run news sites will be the first content creators to be affected since the law is supposed to protect those who own their own copyright a 100%, in addition to whatever mechanical and/or visual copyright. (I do, or  we’ve paid for a license).

In short you need to own all the content that you upload. It will ultimately be the responsibility of YouTube to ensure that this rule is being followed. Which means that it might only be profitable and safe for social media platforms to approve content from major entertainment companies.

This will literally mean the end of socio-economic mobility and independent brand-building via social media an opportunity open to anyone with an internet connection. It will simultaneously be the end of the youth-culture that our younger siblings and/or children have grown up with.

The face of my younger sister when I explained this to her says it all, I don’t even want to know how my youngest sibling might react.

The role-models of Generation Z are YouTubers, when they meet they talk about bloggers, when they laugh they enjoy parody accounts and memes, their heroes are gamers and influencers and Millennials and other Zers who are doing covers, often times 10x better than the actual original.

Not only will it mean the end of their unique and diverse culture it will also put a lot of influencers and role-models who have not become part of the entertainment establishment out of business.

It is an attack on anyone who is not a baby-boomer, an attack on anyone who is independent, an attack on those who’ve been fortunate enough to be able to create their own playlists and choose their own role-models rather than having content defined for them by whatever establishment.

It is an attack on freedom, youth, diversity, creativity, vitality and innovation.

The EU are the ones who claim that they care about diversity, cultural enrichment and children, now we see how deep this concern truly is in their handling of the internet.

Generation Z & Millennials will never forgive them – Thou Shall Not Laugh In Europe.

You can contact your EU representatives and find out who they are by a simple Google search or make a video if you are a YouTuber: http://www.europarl.europa.eu/unitedkingdom/en/your-meps/uk_meps.html#shadowbox/1/

 

Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

A good while back I linked to a series of articles where it was said that the U.K. coastal boarder is incredibly weak enabling human trafficking. I listed this article along a great deal of others that described defence weaknesses not only in the UK but also in Norway.

Enter Sajid Javid who as Home Secretary in the UK is sorting out said issue. Upon his appointment there were people on the right who saw this as suspect, I even came across a story, or a theory, that England was now getting closer to becoming a “Caliphate“ due to the position of Home Secretary going to Javid. This is interesting considering that people with the same heritage and lineage betray each other all the time which is something that once again crossed my mind when I saw a ridiculous viral video clip of a White American shouting at another White American due to his Trump t-shirt. The embarrassing “interaction“ was witnessed by a quiet Afro-American bystander who was probably wondering what on earth he found himself in the middle of. I haven’t encountered any English Millennials helping out in the village where I live, for example, in fact it’s only me and I’m not ethnically English….

I would highly recommend reading this book about Norwegian War Criminals: Norway’s Worst Nazis by Bernt Rougthvedt. Of course this doesn’t nullify racism between groups, which I’ve described before, I just think it is most important to point out that things are always multifaceted and not nearly as straightforward and simple as many think. As pointed out in my book review above: German expansionist nationalism was explicitly just that, which is why there was no genuine room for Norwegian nationalists who thought that they could somehow cut a deal with Hitler. The torture and hideous treatment of fellow Norwegians described in the book is not uniquely Norwegian either since there is nothing new about civil-wars and internal issues within a Nation.

After Javid’s latest actions there should be no doubt where is loyalty is, sadly he now appears to be in the receiving end of accusations of racism since he is doing his job. Having access to England is a great, great privilege. He is very right in pointing out that illegal immigrants/asylum seekers pass a great many “safe territories“ before they attempt to enter the UK. It’s good to see that these type of issues are sorted out since they cause a lot of problems long-term unless resolved!

You would think that all of the critics in the media who published the articles that I linked to describing UK’s challenges would now be happy that something is happening.  Here is the Twitter of the UK Home Secretary: Javid on Twitter.

Creation Myths From The Whole World.

This is a collection of creation myths from throughout the world translated to Norwegian. It was lent to me by a relative who clearly wants me to engage in comparative-religion. This is understandable since we used to be Pagan in Norway before we were Christened by the sword; if you are a believer in universalism I guess it makes sense too.

Universalists, as I’ve come to understand it, think that we are all worshipping the exact same God, but that our different cultures have led us to interpret this deity in different ways.

This theory is refuted when looking at those cultures who worship multiple Gods, in addition to the story lines themselves… 

All of the stories contained within this book are ethnocentric and location-based in nature. You would think that the book had been edited by members of the alt-right since the least race-conscious ideology is dethroned, while all others that are linked to blood-lines and ancestry are exalted.

What becomes obvious is that there are no “globalist religions.“ The closest you get is Christianity which appears unique and groundbreaking in offering a religion open to all regardless of race, ethnicity, location and/or socio-economic status.

Then again; the existence of Nations are acknowledged in the Bible and Christ will come back to judge all the Nations, which means that the abolishment of Nations is not part of the plan.

Yet Christianity comes across as the most inclusive of faiths when reading this book that was lent to me clearly as an act of undermining the status of Christianity.

In this my relative failed once again, mainly because of the fact that I’ve actually read the Holy Bible in full:

“The Old Testament” from the “Holy Bible.”

“The New Testament” from the “Holy Bible.”

If it was up to the book itself I wouldn’t know anything about the Christian faith since the religion is represented by two lone quotes. One at the front and one at the back of the collection; that’s all.

Based on that I would have concluded this entry by saying that Egyptian Sun-worship is what I enjoyed the most, since Christianity certainly doesn’t come off as particularly groundbreaking or special in this context.

Much space is dedicated to all sorts of weird worship traditions completely foreign to the Norwegian people and our culture, with the exception of the Norse creation myth.

After realising the importance of racial/ethnic identity when it comes to religions a thought presented itself to me: what if we summon our ancestral Gods when we pray, regardless of who we think we are praying to?

What if each tribe can only access its God/s and this is completely pre-determined due to the “spirit-wifi“?

My personal favourites were out-takes from the following: Eskimos, The Finns, Native Hopi Americans, the Mayans, Sumerians and Muslims.

What is of interest is that a great number of the myths present the Big Bang theory in ancient wrapping displaying the longevity and widespread acceptance of this belief.

What I found interesting in the Norse creation myth (besides the obvious inspiration for Lord of The Rings) was that female and male Gods were to be seen as equals (at least according to this translation) and that poverty and injustice was lamented, just as in The Old Testament.

The reason as to why this is of great interest is that if old Jewish tribes and old Norse tribes were complaining about this back then, then what makes us think that inequality is a challenge that can ultimately be solved in our time?

When reading the Norse creation myth I saw parallels to Greek mythology as well, which was an interesting detail to note; some of these belief systems overlap in part, but not all of them.

In gender-egalitarianism the Norse myth proved itself unique since all of the other myths would fall under the sexism umbrella in today’s socialist culture.

In the Japanese myth everything goes horribly wrong when a female deity speaks to the male deity first. Order is restored and creation can take place once the feminine submits to the masculine.

The African creation myth is certainly the most entertaining one concerning gender roles, since men and women are described as completely separate entities, and that the men are very puzzled when these alien creatures all of a sudden come into their villages helping themselves to their huts. The men are wondering why these women don’t build their own homes and why they come and live-off the men. This instantly made me think of how women are described in Ancient Greek myths:

Ancient Greek Myths – The Universe, The Gods, And Mortals told by Jean-Pierre Vernant.

Liberalism is described as “an evil that has come upon us“ (to paraphrase) in the Native American texts, which once again echos the laments of the prophets in The Old Testament.

Liberalism was clearly not seen as empowerment in ancient texts but rather as the act of demons and/or evil corrupting society.

The complaints from the people in the Buddhist myth also made me think of The Old Testament, where the Jewish people are reprimanded but repeatedly repeat past mistakes only to lament at the heavens again and again.

One of the myths that was of particular interest was the one from the Mayans. The Gods want to create a being that can worship them. They refer to it as the “human doll.“ They try repeatedly but fail and eventually it is said that the humans of today are linked to the monkeys!

The strangest myth of them all was the Kabbalah one. It only reminded me of the “illuminati confirmed“ sketches on YouTube. Kabbalah is clearly trying to decode the Hebrew language in order to “hack the code,“ gaining access to the assumed programming language of God.

Creation myths are becoming increasingly valid and intriguing when observing our own creation of artificial intelligence and advanced machinery, not that it can surpass what has already been created, but it certainly puts our favourite habit of mimicry into perspective.

Some of the texts were quite boring but I forced myself to read them since reading for pleasure isn’t really my number one reason for doing so.

I read out of curiosity and I also have a policy of reading the books that end up in my possession so that I don’t end up with piles of books that are only for show. This has led me to some horrible reading experiences, but it has also introduced me to different perspectives and stories that I wouldn’t normally have been exposed to.

Reading fiction for example is something that I seldom do. I’m intrigued by works that can either help me or enlighten my curiosity in one way or another, and interestingly enough this has led to inspiration for artistic projects as well.
