The Emerging “Global Brain”, by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog . . . a simple article that explains the shift in consciousness — and more 🙂
There’s been heightened chatter as of late, particularly in the Twittersphere, around the idea humanity might be undergoing a consciousness expansion. This concept seems to be going mainstream, which could be a great thing provided it doesn’t get turned into a cliché or marketing gimmick.
This notion of a human consciousness shift that could emerge and alter the paradigm on planet earth in unimaginably positive ways was something I became obsessed with last year. My interest was sparked by the infantile and demented political environment which swept across the U.S. in early 2017, and was solidified by an encounter with the concept of Spiral Dynamics generally, and the work of Ken Wilber specifically. I ended up writing a five-part series on the topic, which I’d like to revisit before moving on.
According to Wilber, the key threshold to hit in order for the next stage of human evolution to occur is 10% of the global population moving into a second tier-type consciousness (yellow based value system). To understand what that means, let’s revisit some of the key characteristics of people resonating at second-tier consciousness.
Yellow value system Characteristics
Firstly, he noticed that a Yellow orientated lifestyle is much more free than a lifestyle in any of the other value systems. Yellow oriented people seemed to move and express themselves completely free and independent of their life environment. Contrary to people in other value systems, they were not afraid anymore to be rejected and they didn’t fear other people’s or God’s judgment. They didn’t show the need to make an impression on others and to reach the top at the cost of everything.
They also didn’t strive anymore for absolute truths and they didn’t have the need to belong to something anymore. In short: these were people without irrational fears, compulsive needs and compulsive behaviors. However, this Yellow freedom doesn’t mean that people in the Yellow value system are not connected to their environment. On the contrary, Yellow oriented people are very much involved and show a lot of compassion. The biggest difference with people from other value systems is that their life environment is not fearfully or compulsively leading them.
Although it’s become trendy to disparage the internet, and social media specifically, as propagators of “fake news” and tribal echo chambers, I take the opposite view. First off, fake news has always been a fundamental part of the human experience. In prior centuries, the wealthy and powerful simply had a monopoly on creating and spreading it. The establishment doesn’t care about “fake news,” it’s simply terrified that people are now able to come to their own informed (or misinformed) conclusions without gatekeepers telling them what to think and how to think. The primary driver behind the establishment panic over “fake news” is simply fear regarding a loss of narrative control. There’s nothing else to it.
Looking at the bigger picture, human beings communicating in realtime, globally, on a peer-to-peer basis using social media (as flawed as the current iterations of it are) is an extraordinary achievement with no precedent in world history. Moreover, this sort of connectivity has only been happening at scale for around a decade or so. This is a meaningless blip in the context of time, and we simply can’t imagine what the ultimate consequences will be.
My personal view is that we’re currently witnessing the emergence of what Terence McKenna called the “global brain.”
Here’s what he said about it in 1994:
The people who are not switched on don’t even know anything has happened. To them the world looks exactly like it looked five years ago. To the people who are switched on, earth is becoming a distant memory.
The internet is the global brain. The cyber-spatially connected telepathic collective domain that we’ve all been hungering for.
Some of you may misinterpret this, so let me elaborate. When talking about a “global brain” I’m not referring to uniformity of thought at a planetary level, but rather the ultimate outcome of human beings directly talking to one another across borders. Over time, I’m completely convinced this will result in a much more compassionate, understanding and connected species, which will make manipulating us into crazy wars or other insane activities counterproductive to our wellbeing much more difficult for the types who make a habit of that sort of thing.
The “global brain” is just humanity discovering that we are all connected. That we aren’t as different as we’re led to believe, and that we certainly shouldn’t be running around killing each other to satisfy the money and power cravings of a very small, but highly motivated, type of person.
In other words, the emergence of the global brain, thanks to the internet, will in the long-run help free us from systemic manipulation and lies. I’m not talking about a utopia, but I am talking about a much healthier paradigm for our species.
It won’t happen overnight, but it is happening. Your job is to do whatever you can help it come into being.
Given a universe in which anything goes, what are the most lovely, generous, and exuberant things we can do?

“God damn you to hell,” Caputo said in his closing statement, obtained by the Washington Examiner, telling the panel that their investigation “forced” his family out of their home, leaving his children “crushed” over the mounting legal costs due to the inquiry.
“Today, I can’t possibly pay the attendant legal costs and live near my aging father, raising my kids where I grew up,” Caputo said. “Your investigation and others into the allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Russia are costing my family a great deal of money — more than $125,000 — and making a visceral impact on my children.”
Caputo said that Senate Intelligence Committee members are working together and contributing to the “swamp,” pointing to the fact that a former Senate Intelligence staffer to Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) – Daniel Jones, was one of two sources in a recent McClatchy report about Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney whose office, home and hotel room were raided last month at special counsel Robert Mueller’s request.
“But who is McClatchy’s second source? It couldn’t be Dan; he was the first source … So who could it be — perhaps one of his former Senate Intelligence colleagues? I mean, you’re all in this together. You’re the swamp.”
Jones, a former FBI investigator who was previously one of Feinstein’s top aides, is conducting an ongoing, private investigation into Trump-Russia claims using $50 million supplied by George Soros and a group of 7-10 wealthy donors from California and New York. Jones is working with opposition research firm Fusion GPS – and Christopher Steele, the former UK spy Fusion commissioned to create the infamous “Steele Dossier” which former Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe said was instrumental to the Trump-Russia investigation.
Caputo called for an “investigation of the investigators,” demanding to know who was “coordinating this attack on President Donald Trump.”
“Forget about all the death threats against my family. I want to know who cost us so much money, who crushed our kids, who forced us out of our home, all because you lost an election,” Caputo said. “I want to know because God damn you to hell.“

George is filled with so many, many provable facts and connects the dots in every way possible, and still we get stonewalled. (Awans’ trial is now put off to June 7th.) Could John McCain/Q even begin to approach George’s knowledge? Or does John just want another war — you know, any war will do — and why has Q tied himself in with McCain?
George spoke earlier today on his feelings about the care of veterans, and I have to wonder how he will feel when he sees the following headline:
. . . this is so totally destructive, and I can tell you it will cure nothing. Drugs never do. What it will do is create zombies, the A-21 kind. Our veterans need professional, humane, caring contact with people they can trust, who know how to help empower them to release this trauma from a brain — all our brains — that cannot tell reality from a ‘triggered’ memory. It is possible to learn to go into the FEAR, experience it, and then tell it (the fear, terror) that it didn’t destroy you before, that you know it is only a memory . . . and thus begin to banish it from your memory. I’ve been there, and I Know. It’s difficult, but it is entirely possible — only you need the help of another caring human being, most definitely not pills.
Well, I didn’t plan to say all this, but I suddenly felt so bad for these veterans, who don’t deserve to be given drugs. What they deserve is to be loved and cared for, and respected for their service to our country!
