Is that a feedback mechanism? I would liken facebook / social media / phones to an inescapable feedback mechanism for 99% of society.

You're on the right track. The title of this thread refers to a statement made in the notorious Rofsy thread, wherein it is said...

Quote
There are terms in MECHANICAL ENGINEERING: LAG and LASH, for example! You likely know LAG already. LASH can be defined as: the maximum distance through which one part of something can be moved without moving a connected part. The next system eliminates the LAG and LASH inherent with FIAT. Think of it this way. You have two domestics in your employ. Domestic A is willing to perform the household tasks, and is generally competent in doing so. However, one must provide specific instructions as to every action desired. For example, you return home and Domestic A greets you at the door. You have to tell it to take your coat and direct it to prepare dinner. Regardless of the fact that your routine seldom varies, the domestic requires direction! One deals with varying degrees of PASSIVE RESISTANCE. Now apply this RESISTANCE across vast numbers and CALCULATE the WASTE! Domestic B greets you at the door and wordlessly takes your coat, and leads you to a sumptuous banquet...carefully prepared and flawless in execution and plating. You finish the meal and find the fire prepared and your favorite drink ready. Later, the bedsheets are carefully turned down and your nightwear laid out carefully. All without the need to issue commands. The first system has excessive LAG and LASH. System two provides FLOW and CONTINUITY with no wasted effort. The holy grail of engineering...ABOVE UNITY! FIAT has done its job. The NEXT system implements a level of control with an inescapable feedback mechanism which encourages seamless and utter COMPLIANCE!

Replace "Domestic" with "humanity." Consider the repercussions of a programmable CBDC, which can only be used to buy specified goods or services. Connect that back to your point of social media, vis-a-vis a social credit score, which is already being implemented in China. Now connect all that to the recent patent filed by Microsoft for a cryptocurrency system attached to a digital device attached to the body.

What exactly is the singularity?

Full manifestation of an objective intelligent consciousness that is meant to guide humanity from an external source, rather than an internal one. Basically really hardcore left-hand path work with a twist because its about way more than individual power. Alot of these people believe they are doing good... and as brg has said they may very well be at this point. They figure they can "make" the horse drink after leading it to water, so to speak.

I'm only parsing your words because they are so well articulated. Rather than describe the system as an objective intelligent consciousness, I would refer to it as a technological anti-Christ. "Anti" meaning "in place of." A counterfeit of real consciousness. Other than than, your description is spot on.

Highland park.
Parkland high.

Just like the Christchurch inversion. Can't remember the counter to that one though.

I did meet two women from parkland. Even people on the ground think they're real (albeit they do have questions).

I think that's the point of amazon.

1. dominate the book market and then push out all the book sellers

2. censor/modify the books it sells.

And the fifth angel sounded his trumpet: and I saw a star out of the heaven fallen to the earth; and there was given to it the key of the pit of the abyss.

I have an uneasy feeling today that I woke up with that I can't shake.  I hope everyone has a good safe day today, good time to be with loved ones.

I went to a friend's house several weeks ago.  She lives in the forest and has no home wifi.  Ironically, THIS is where I got sick with the current covid like illness that is going around.

It progressed into a sinus infection and bronchitis.  After 2 weeks of fighting it, a blast of antibiotics (which you know is a last resort for me) + an inhaler and I am finally on backend of this illness. 

Everyone else in the house also got sick.  Two other adults were vaccinated (3x).  One had a hoarse voice for the weekend and mild sniffles; he tested positive for covid.  The other adult started with a sore throat (like I did), a hoarse voice, and went into a dry cough.  She still coughs a few times a day two weeks later. (But I am coughing more than her still and I need cough meds round the clock).

There were 2 young teenagers in the home - one was vaxxed 3x, the other no vax. The vaxxed one is mostly nonverbal.  We know she had mild sniffles and the sickness aggravated her exisiting seizure disorder.  The non vaxxed one had a mild sore throat for days and had mild sniffles.  Nothing Sudafed, Claritin, and Vitamin C couldn't help with. 

Is there amazing conclusive evidence the vaccines "work?"  Other people in town had the same illness.  The vaccinated ones seemed to get over the worst of it in 3 days.  But I was also stressed from traveling, with little sleep, etc.  Maybe in my home environment it would have only lasted 3 days or less too. And there wasn't much difference in the teenager's sicknesses between the 3x vax and no vax.

I won't travel again without all my "covid fighting" supplements.  It's worth dedicating suitcase space to all of those meds.  You never know what you will find in stock in town.

I had it the last few days. Tested neg for covid but had all the symptoms and another night of internal tremors / hypothermia swinging to hyperthermia. Doubled my quercetin / zinc dose and fine 2 days later. Not vaxxed, had delta+ last nov (almost killed me).
