Light \Light\ (l[imac]t), noun [OE. light, liht, AS. le['i]ht; akin to OS. lioht, D. & G. licht, OHG. lioht, Goth. liuha[thorn], Icel. lj[=o]s, L. lux light, lucere to shine, Gr. leyko's white, Skr. ruc to shine. [root]122. Cf. {Lucid}, {Lunar}, {Luminous}, {Lynx}.]

1. That agent, force, or action in nature by the operation of which upon the organs of sight, objects are rendered visible or luminous.

Note: Light was regarded formerly as consisting of material particles, or corpuscules, sent off in all directions from luminous bodies, and traversing space, in right lines, with the known velocity of about 186,300 miles per second; but it is now generally understood to consist, not in any actual transmission of particles or substance, but in the propagation of vibrations or undulations in a subtile, elastic medium, or ether, assumed to pervade all space, and to be thus set in vibratory motion by the action of luminous bodies, as the atmosphere is by sonorous bodies. This view of the nature of light is known as the undulatory or wave theory; the other, advocated by Newton (but long since abandoned), as the corpuscular, emission, or Newtonian theory. A more recent theory makes light to consist in electrical oscillations, and is known as the electro-magnetic theory of light.

What does Hillary Clinton think of the TPP?

CONSENT

Why is James Clapper still in his job after lying to Congress about the warrantless metadata program? He is an honorable man with good intentions and tough decisions to make, but lying to Congress in an OPEN and recorded hearing is a fireable offense. James Clapper, you were in a tough spot. You had to protect sources and methods and the sources and methods were classified and you weren't thinking on your feet too well at the time. Unfortunately, the public should have discussed this prior to its going into effect. We did not CONSENT to this. You did this without the public's CONSENT. You used secret interpretations of unconstitutional laws to justify your actions. If all of the data that our phone company or ISP has on us is the property of the U.S. Government without a warrant, then we should know that. This isn't something that you keep from the public. I'm sorry, you're basically a good man, but you did something unconstitutional with the best of intentions. You allowed our President to do something unconstitutional because you thought it was the right thing to do. It was unconstitutional nonetheless. I am holding you and your boss, the President of the United States of America, and the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America ACCOUNTABLE for this. I find this behavior unacceptable and I will clarify my position and offer constructive alternatives to the bureaucratic and business entities below. Once you eliminate the need for all taxation and debt while simultaneously ending poverty and providing a mechanism to finance FREE universal health care with the best available doctors, the public officials seem rather out of place and in over their heads, with all due respect. I know the sensation well. I do not aspire to be a politician. Caveat Emptor. I have a severe mental illness. I don't want your job. I'm in over my head right here. I am merely an OPEN and TRANSPARENT messenger of some simple ideas and futuristic concepts. OPEN and TRANSPARENT Accountability Virtual Central Bank Genie

What about using our science and technology and computer expertise to build a FREE-to-use REAL TIME online central bank and fee-FREE online and retail payment system? Design a bank that gives FREE credit or grants to people who would otherwise have no money. Design a banking system to eliminate poverty in general. Design a banking system where the bank pays for all health care and insurance. Figure out a banking system that eliminates the entire for-profit mortgage industry. Make credit cards that don't need to be paid back. Give all land and homes back to the occupants. For one moment in time, eliminate the word "RENT." Just buy out all the mortgage companies and landlords and give it all back to the occupants and residents. Pay doctors well. Eliminate the need for taxation. Re-pay all debts all at once and eliminate the for-profit credit industry for one moment in time all at once. Simply render the whole business model obsolete. Give them their money back, and put it all in the same REAL TIME bank. Which we will agree to use as the for-profit banking industry is relegated to the dustbin of history. Let the bankers have their money. They can invest it in the marketplace directly, as their for-profit banking services are no longer required. We as a species can administer credit for FREE because its in the PUBLIC INTEREST.

FREE REAL TIME VALUES Scientific Method

Certainly, as a species, we can design REAL TIME accounting systems that can scale to serve the whole world. That task, I'd personally have to delegate. I'm fairly smart and have some suggestions and ideas, but technically I'm afraid I have a disability that is preventing me from ever being an expert at anything, with perhaps this one exception among a few others: I know enough about the SCIENTIFIC METHOD to know that it all starts by asking answerable questions. That is my specialty. I'm good at asking good questions. Hey all you geniuses, you want some GOALS to figure out? Here are some GOALS. Can we do this? How can we do this? Where do we start? If I had the opportunity to have a talk with a genie, I'd ask it to design a global banking system according to these VALUES and parameters. FREE. REAL TIME. Ubiquitous. No taxation. No poverty. FREE universal healthcare with the best available and most qualified doctors. This isn't Medicare-for-all I'm talking about here, this is doctors and nurses get paid well straight from the online FREE-to-use REAL TIME central bank. Health care is paid for period. It keeps the economy running smoothly for all. We want all citizens everywhere to be healthy and happy.

CONSENSUS

When it comes to representing the 1% or the other 99%, I'll stick with the 99%, although in the interest of creating an effective CONSENSUS, my cashless banking ideas will also appeal to the 1% and businesses, because the strategies involve creating new funding mechanisms that allow us to eliminate all taxation while making all banking services FREE and REAL TIME. That means FREE credit that can often be converted to grants. This means FREE money that does not need to be repaid. The objective is to reward producers without indebting the consumers. If you have a totally computerized electronic banking system, you can reward the producers when the consumers consume their products and services without charging the consumers anything at all. You could literally make people totally FREE by converting to an internet based REAL TIME FREE banking system that can scale up to serve the whole planet. This is a PHILANTHROPIC and HUMANITARIAN set of FIRST PRINCPLES. This is a very positive GOAL for us to set for ourselves. This is in the PUBLIC INTEREST.

Click here to read Wikileaks' TPP Investment Chapter: https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/press.html. This agreement is being kept secret from the world public for a good reason. It is decidedly NOT in the PUBLIC INTEREST. This is an example of the high level government corruption that results when diplomatic and intelligence processes are NOT OPEN and TRANSPARENT and ACCOUNTABLE. This is an example of a product of too much secrecy. It is naked corruption.

OPEN and TRANSPARENT Accountable President Barack Obama OPEN and TRANSPARENT PUBLIC INTEREST

Barack Obama, I thought you were supposed to be THE MOST OPEN and TRANSPARENT administration by all reasonable measures. "HOPE" and "CHANGE," you promised during your campaigns. You disappoint me with this TPP. This is overtly and blatantly secret at the expense of the vast majority of taxpaying citizens. You are NOT OPEN and TRANSPARENT. This is blatant corruption. This is NOT in the PUBLIC INTEREST. You come across to me as very kind and thoughtful and charming and insightful and benevolent on the surface, and you are first class idea salesman and a powerful and persuasive motivational speaker, but there is no way in Hell that you could sell this TPP to the American people if you were OPEN and TRANSPARENT about it.

You are intentionally and willfully keeping the public in the dark about this. Just like when you told the American people that their "meta data" didn't contain any personally identifying information. They actually bought that. You fed them one level of database abstraction and they failed to connect the dots to themselves. You intentionally confused them into thinking that the data was anonymous. You said the data doesn't include your name and address. As if you don't know exactly what citizen and home address the phone number belongs to, just who the citizen called, when and for how long. You have our friendships and business contacts mapped in a database at your disposal without a warrant. That's unconstitutional. Thank you for setting the public straight on that one. It's good to have an informed populace, don't you think?

James Clapper lies to Congress, gets caught, keeps his job. That's corruption. The man lied to Congress. He lied to the American public while he violated their PRIVACY en masse. And you let him get away with it and you continued the violation without the citizens' informed CONSENT. You simply lied to them with some abstractions and soothed them to calm their fears about their PRIVACY having been violated in a major way made legal only by secret interpretation of corrupt and unconstitutional laws. I'm sorry, you have failed the populist integrity test. You don't get that kind of power. The Constitution forbids it. I am holding you ACCOUNTABLE.

Hillary Clinton,

  1. What is your position on the TPP?
  2. Do you have a hand in this mess?
  3. Are you in on this?
  4. Can you take credit for some of this?
  5. What do you know about this?
  6. Wikileaks doesn't always do the right thing. I don't agree with their publishing of the Sony e-mails. But I think they're doing the right thing by publishing the TPP documents. What do you have to say about it, as a potential Commander in Chief?
  7. Do you think this is a good idea or not as written here: https://wikileaks.org/tpp-investment/WikiLeaks-TPP-Investment-Chapter/page-1.html?
  8. Is this in the PUBLIC INTEREST?
  9. Here it is in black and white. Corruption enshrined in the world's biggest trade deal which is totally secret and hidden from the public. Elizabeth Warren thinks this is a bad deal. What do you think?
  10. Is this a RESPONSIBLE question for we citizens to ask of you?
  11. "Fast-Track" my ass! This deal sucks for ordinary citizens and taxpayers. That's my opinion. I'd like to know yours. You don't get to keep your opinion a secret on this one. We have a need to know where you stand on this. Are you totally corrupt or not?
  12. This should be a no-brainer. The longer you remain silent on this, the more I suspect that you support this TPP. The people have spoken. Now we know. What does Hillary Clinton think of the TPP?
  13. When I get it on tape I'll post it on my YouTube channel. Just how stupid do you think we are?
  14. Are you going to try to sell this to us?
  15. Are you actually a psychopath or do you give a shit about ordinary people?

I give a shit about ordinary people. Say, "Hell No!" to the TPP.

P.S., I've given a lot of thought as to whether or not I am a psychopath. I think I care way too much about people to be a psychopath. I think about things differently and I admit to having delusions. But I am kind and empathetic and compassionate at heart. I am crazy but I'm basically a good guy who deserves to be FREE.

PUBLIC INTEREST RESPONSIBILITY FREE Say "Hell No!" to the TPP. Accountable Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America

Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Constitutional expert? John Roberts, I'm sorry, you and your FISA judges made a big unconstitutional mistake. You are authorizing and condoning illegal search and seizure. Citizens United should have been a tip-off, but sir, you are certainly corrupt. Your secret courts are corrupt and unconstitutional. Your warrantless surveillance is illegal. If I were to design a better world banking system, I certainly wouldn't make it ACCOUNTABLE to you. You abuse your power and willfully allow others to abuse their power. You are corrupt. You are Mr. Warrantless Ubiquitous Surveillance. My phone calls are PRIVATE, thank you very much. None of your business without a warrant specifically specifying the person or place to be searched. The place is not whole the phone company. The person is not everyone who uses a phone. Sorry all you security geniuses, that's not constitutional. So much for your secret FISA court system. I believe the F stands for foreign. How's that working out for us?

PRIVATE Constitution Philanthropic Jannet Yellen, the Chair of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank

Janet Yellen, what do you think about a whole new world central banking model in which the producers are rewarded without charging the consumers by keeping all the money in the same online FREE central bank that pays for all products and services? Why create new money as debt? That is an undemocratic business model. It is not in the PUBLIC INTEREST when less expensive, high technology and more direct alternatives are available. We have the technology to administer central bank credit directly to consumers for FREE. We don't need a for-profit credit industry for most legitimate commerce. If the money never leaves the same bank, then debt repayment and taxes are unnecessary. This is a PHILANTHROPIC and HUMANITARIAN, NONPROFIT, REAL TIME banking system. This is an entire banking system that is not based on the manufacturing and maintenance of debt as a business model. We can retire the debt RESPONSIBLY with a little bit of supercomputing. The most efficient way to deal with all the debt is to settle all the accounts electronically. That is the path of least social disruption. You simply create a virtual bank and settle all the debts and get the citizens to agree to honor that currency in whatever marketplace. Create all the accounts. Credit the creditors for all the debtors' debts. Case closed. Ask the consumers if they'd be willing to honor this currency. I'll bet they'd be cool with it if you set it all up with maximum FREEDOM and LIBERTY and PRIVACY. The status quo has to go. With all due respect to a wonderful and brilliant person, technology has this problem solved already.

In summary:

These are the kinds of things that I talk about. I am a very Liberal Constitutionalist who devises global banking systems to directly address poverty and the need for quality health care for all in a FREE and REAL TIME banking system without taxation. We need to totally rethink the monetary system in terms of infinite computing power. What if the internet was ubiquitous? Economically speaking, what would that enable? From the standpoint of the banking system, what new opportunities does this new model present? Are these ideas good for business or not? Does this create new markets or not? Are these ideas good for humanity in general? Is this website serving the PUBLIC INTEREST or am I just a delusional spam bot or internet troll? I do not think that I'm a psychopath. Generally speaking, I try to be helpful and useful. We aim to please around here. We are benevolent. DO NO HARM is our motto. How can I use my power for good? I will do my best to relay information from others who I respect. So you have a bank with a hundred billion accounts. The GOAL: Reward the producers without indebting the consumers. Just make sure everybody has working capital. Get rid of all the debt up front. Sorry, kids, that game sucked. We're starting over. The status quo has to go. We have lost our PRIVACY. This is designing something that is TOO BIG TO FAIL for the right reasons, because it's FREE and it's an instrument of FREEDOM, not slavery. This is what we need our scientists and engineers and academics to design for us. That's my request of the Genie.

economic opportunity I quit that game. I SURRENDER OPEN and TRANSPARENT Monetary System TRADING SYSTEM Stock Market LEGAL TENDER Virtual Central Bank

I am passive, yet I am an activist. Peaceful in every way. Don't get me started on my childhood exposure to guns and guts. I learned empathy later in life. As a kid in a family of sport hunters where childhood rites of passage were rewarded with increasingly deadly rifles, I was an unabashed and remorseless killing machine. I was a ruthless, calculating hunter destroying life forms for the sheer fun and challenge of it from the age of 9. Lizards. Birds. Squirrels. Rattlesnakes. "Way to go! Good shot!" I killed these animals for target practice. After I moved out, however, I came to know compassion and empathy, and was filled with remorse about my childhood ignorance and learned insensitivity. I have done a lot of thinking about whether or not I am a psychopath. I see every animal as a sacred being with every right to continue experiencing life as I possess myself. I don't kill flies. I capture them and put them outside. I don't like killing things. I have outgrown sport hunting. Factory farming is anathema to civilization. That is no way to treat a cow or a pig or a chicken or a turkey. I am sorry all you factory farmers, you are not Gods. Cows eat grass, not corn and other cows. Pigs have strong legs because they are supposed to move around all day long.

Do I fit the terrorist profile now or not? Hitler was a vegetarian with big social plans. Here is PETA on Sport Hunting.

I support EFF and Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. Am I an extremist? Am I a left-wing radical? Am I a right-wing reactionary? Sort of like a Libertarian Socialist but totally in support of returning the private property to the occupants and residents and creating a virtual banking system that eliminates the need for taxation and debt while eliminating poverty and providing FREE universal health care with doctors and nurses who make good money.

We have the technology today to render the whole banking, insurance and taxation business models obsolete. We can certainly reward the producers without indebting the consumers. We have that capacity as a species. It's data in a supercomputer. We can program that functionality into the system. We don't need for-profit banks to hold all the mortgages. That industry is obsolete. Let's lower the cost of living by giving everybody their homes and land and getting rid of taxes and debt altogether. We can take care of all the bankers and coal miners while rendering their industries unnecessary. We aim to please around here. We believe in using positive reinforcement to get things done. We is the better nature of the human species. We is We The People. Can we do this? Yes We Can. I have faith in humanity as a whole. As a species, we are very smart. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the banking and taxation industries, we are presently mismanaged. The best and brightest among us can accomplish amazing things when given a set of GOALS and VALUES and FIRST PRINCIPLES. These are mine. These are my PHILANTHROPIC and HUMANITARIAN suggestions for the SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY as a whole and the public at large. This is what I think we should do to solve the problems we have with debt, government corruption, poverty, health care and the environment.
