THIS IS WHAT THE SCIENTISTS DID TO ME
GOOD BAD SERIOUS CRITICAL NEUTRAL

Ralph Merkle is a world famous nanotechnologist. He wrote this essay on how to scan a brain with molecular precision. I believe they did this to me at some point in my early childhood in the 1970s. They were studying the brain and they raised me in a controlled setting and because I wet the bed I went to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital for a scan of my bladder. It was all a set up.

Right before the inspection of my bladder, they let me play with a GIF ViewMaster stereoscopic 3D viewer. I have vague memories of being packed in ice while being awoken from anesthesia. It hurt so bad it was painless. I talked to a very kind and compassionate scientist who wanted to tell me that I was very brave and how much I was helping humanity and how much they appreciated my sacrifice.

I have since that time realized that I am being treated like a true patriot. They let me speak my mind. I get rid of religion by appealing to the religious. I made a secular savior of earth and humanity. A terrorist would have chosen earth alone and screw humanity given our ecological track record. Messenger of the gods. A Secular Libertarian Utopia.

I believe that I came out of that procedure in a virtual reality simulation of my former life, complete with burning piss. They scanned me and resurrected me in VR and gave me access to my prior timeline, which is your present timeline.

My reward for helping the scientists understand the human brain is that I get to save the world and upgrade the banking system by being the safest civil libertarian peace activist in human history. I am safe.

New monetary system. Computers pay for everything. Now you own your home. Now you have an income. Free electric cars. New green energy and green transportation infrastructure at no cost to anybody. Roads and bridges everywhere. Clean water infrastructure everywhere. No taxes. No debt. FAIR MARKET VALUE, PAID IN FULL. All workers will be well rewarded.

Somehow, I get to use the internet and say whatever I want. I talk about taking over the world and creating a whole new monetary system in which computers pay for everything and everybody owns their home. That would eliminate the banking, insurance, mortgage and property rental industries in their entirety.

My suggestions would make me the world's most dangerous man. Surely I am a threat to the whole global economic system. Yet, I am still online and I feel safe as ever. You might consider reading my ideas, as I seem to have the right to publish my thoughts online and I am using that opportunity to overhaul the whole system.

My puppet masters have conditioned me to be brave and rebellious. I accept my hardwired role as a drug addict. They gave me PTSD on purpose just so they could heal me later by legalizing marijuana. They let me use THC. Won't you join me now as I provide you with the formula for world peace.
