Clinically, we understand death to mean the state that takes hold after our hearts stop beating. Blood circulation comes to a halt, we don’t breathe, our brains shut down—and that’s what divides the states we occupy from one moment (alive) to the next (dead). Philosophically, though, our definition of death hinges on something else: the point past which we’re no longer able to return. Those two were more or less the same until about 50 years ago, when we saw the advent of CPR. Today, someone’s heart can stop and they can be dead, and then they can come back.

Modern resuscitation was a game-changer for emergency care, but it also blew apart our understanding of what it means to be dead. Without many people returning from the dead to show us otherwise, it was natural to assume, from a scientific perspective, that our consciousness dies at the same time as our bodies. Over the last few years, though, scientists have seen repeated evidence that once you die, your brain cells take days, potentially longer, to reach the point past which they’ve degraded too far to ever be viable again. This does not mean you’re not dead; you are dead. Your brain cells, however, may not be.

“What’s fascinating is that there is a time, only after you and I die, that the cells inside our bodies start to gradually go toward their own process of death,” Dr. Sam Parnia, director of critical care and resuscitation research at New York University Langone Medical Center, told Newsweek. “I’m not saying the brain still works, or any part of you still works once you’ve died. But the cells don’t instantly switch from alive to dead. Actually, the cells are much more resilient to the heart stopping—to the person dying—than we used to understand.”

Evolutionary theory is universally accepted among the mainstream science community. And yet, when the evolutionary perspective is applied to human behaviour, the approach continues to meet with resistance, and in some cases outright disdain.

A team led by Benjamin Winegard thinks part of the reason is because of the misrepresentation of evolutionary psychology in textbooks, especially social science textbooks on the topics of sex and gender. Based on their analysis of eight types of error in 12 widely used books in this genre, the researchers conclude that the treatment of their subject is “shoddy”.

And because anthropology tuned into these other aspects of their lives, the idea of “primitive affluence” fell out of favour. Some branded it a romantic myth. Others raised questions about the accuracy of the some of the original data pointing out that hunter-gatherers suffered from occasional hardships, that the 15 hour work week didn’t apply equally to all hunter-gatherer groups and that the likes of Lee ignored time and effort domestic tasks like preparing food and fires.

But in focusing argument on these particular details they conveniently ignored the central cultural pillar of the argument which was that regardless of many hours the likes of the Ju/’hoansi worked they only worked to satisfy their immediate needs.

The early work on primitive affluence has recently been given new impetus by recent advances in genomics that have enabled us to map in increasingly greater detail the 200,000 year history of our species. These indicate that the northern Kalahari, rather than east Africa, may well have been cradle of modern Homo Sapiens. The data also suggests that this core group of Homo sapiens split into two around 150,000 years ago and while one branch restlessly expanded northwards gradually colonising the rest of the planet, the ancestors of the Bushmen remained where they were, so that by the time modern humans first set foot in South America eleven thousand years ago the Bushmen had remained in the Kalahari for 140 thousand years or more.

Taken in tandem with a series of new archaeological finds it also suggested that for at least 70,000 years- and possibly considerably more, the ancestors of modern Bushmen lived in the same places and in a very similar manner to those that were still hunting and gathering midway through the twentieth century. Perhaps most importantly, the data also reveals that if we measure the success of a civilization by its longevity, then the Bushmen were by far the most successful civilization in all of human history. Given that a society’s ability to reproduce over time depends on its ability to feed itself then the key to the Bushmen’s success lay in their economic approach.

The transition to agriculture is one of the most important points of human evolution. This process has been the subject of intense debate over the last hundred years, but recent results from early DNA have shown the predominant role of migration of populations from Anatolia to Europe. These migrations followed two main roads, one along the Mediterranean coast and the other towards Central Europe and Northern Europe. These dispersions have been accompanied by genetic mixtures with local hunter-gatherer populations to varying degrees. The Neolithic transition in Britain begins only a millennium after its arrival in the North-West of the European continent.

Selina Brace and her colleagues have just published a paper entitled:Population Replacement in Early Neolithic Britain . They sequenced the genome of six Mesolithic individuals and sixteen Neolithic individuals from Britain. These results were merged with the genome of 51 previously published British Neolithic individuals :

The proportion of Anatolian ancestry among British farmers is equivalent to that of the first farmers of the Iberian Peninsula or farmers of the Middle Neolithic of Central Europe. In the interior of Great Britain, farmers in Wales have the least hunter-gatherer ancestry, while the South-East English and Scots have the most. These proportions remain stable throughout the British Neolithic. In addition, the British Neolithic people share more genetic affinity with the farmers of the Iberian Peninsula than with those of Central Europe. There does not seem to have been (or very little) genetic mixing between farmers who arrived in Britain and British hunter-gatherers.

There are no such things as “wild” horses anymore.

Research published in Science today overturns a long-held assumption that Przewalski’s horses, native to the Eurasian steppes, are the last wild horse species on Earth. Instead, phylogenetic analysis shows Przewalski’s horses are feral, descended from the earliest-known instance of horse domestication by the Botai people of northern Kazakhstan some 5,500 years ago.

Further, the new paper finds that modern domesticated horses didn’t descend from the Botai horses, an assumption previously held by many scientists.

“This was a big surprise,” said co-author Sandra Olsen, curator-in-charge of the archaeology division of the Biodiversity Institute and Natural History Museum at the University of Kansas, who led archaeological work at known Botai villages. “I was confident soon after we started excavating Botai sites in 1993 that we had found the earliest domesticated horses. We went about trying to prove it, but based on DNA results Botai horses didn’t give rise to today’s modern domesticated horses—they gave rise to the Przewalski’s horse.”

The findings signify there are no longer true “wild” horses left, only feral horses that descend from horses once domesticated by humans, including Przewalski’s horses and mustangs that descend from horses brought to North America by the Spanish.

“This means there are no living wild horses on Earth—that’s the sad part,” said Olsen. “There are a lot of equine biologists who have been studying Przewalskis, and this will be a big shock to them. They thought they were studying the last wild horses. It’s not a real loss of biodiversity—but in our minds, it is. We thought there was one last wild species, and we’re only just now aware that all wild horses went extinct.”

“To take something on faith means to believe it without good reason, so by definition a faith in the existence of supernatural entities clashes with reason.”

Well, it’s good to have that settled once and for all. There is no need to trouble yourself with the arguments of historians, anthropologists and evolutionary biologists, who treat religion as a highly complex phenomenon, serving a variety of human needs. All you need do is consult a dictionary, and you will find that religion is – by definition – irrational.

A younger Jordan Peterson:

  • Maps of Meaning 1 (Harvard Lectures)

It’s that time again, when I need to write something here to keep this blog alive.

It has become an increasingly difficult task, because my head, my whole being, is messed up because of the stroke, and also because of the handful of pills the doctors say I must take every day.

Nonetheless, I think it is important for me to persevere and to stay with it. Nobody compels me to do this. It’s entirely my own volition. But it’s become a central focal point of my existing, which is quite interesting, because, without it, how would I be ?

My little perch here on my sofa, in my living room, at the keyboard and screen, is, for me, the Centre of the Universe, a more-or-less fixed point around which to circulate.

It’s rather like driving a car on a long journey, except that, geographically speaking, I remain static. But the imagery and information on the screen moves and changes, and me, the viewer and pilot, I move and change too, from hour to hour, day to day.

But it’s a lot like meditation in a meditation hall. I break to eat, sleep, visit the bathroom, but mostly I have this precious luxury of continuity and stability, where as many aspects of existence as possible are stabilised and kept fairly tranquil and static.

This is in marked contrast to the lives that most people I’ve known live, where the constant is continual challenges, distractions and interruptions. You know, customers, children, colleagues, schedules, myriad urgent demands and constant changes, which prevent the establishment of a coherent stabilised inner state.

I think that a person has the right, indeed the obligation, to change their mind if they receive new evidence, information, facts, insights. I used to find myself agreeing with people on the Left, (such as Ian Welsh, George Monbiot, Vinay Gupta, Yves Smith, Kevin Carson, etc, etc ) whose thoughts I used to read regularly. But I believe that our socio-political circumstances, the landscape, has changed, much like the turning of the tide. I see those people’s positions as ridiculous, they are stranded on the dry beach yet still insist on pointlessly paddling, waving their oars in the air, flailing about like dying lobsters.

It is the hardest, thinnest, time of the year in this part of the world. The abundant growth of last summer has all shrivelled and died off, and the Spring has yet to arrive, but it is getting closer. There are a few birds practising their songs early in the morning and soon the daffodils will be blooming. Will I reach my three score plus ten ? Who knows ? I am rather weak and decrepit, personally I wouldn’t bet money on it. I’m actually quite surprised that I am still here. Very surprised 🙂

Still here ? Where is ‘here’ precisely ? Most people seem to be rather shallow and never give it much thought or serious attention. I mean, being alive in the world, or on a flat or round planet, etc.

But that is a sort of physical or partly physical location. We are much more than that. We are mentally, emotionally, spiritually located. A good illustration is, for example, if a man or woman whose been married for, say, twenty years or so, who discovers that all that time their partner had been cheating and having sex with someone else. Suddenly they realise that all their assumptions about the decades before have been wrong. They never really knew or understood the other person whom they had trusted.

Which means, that at that sort of psychological, emotional and intellectual level, ‘the past’ is not some definite fixed thing at all, it can be overthrown and disrupted, devastating a person’s sense of identity and place in the world.

Vinay Gupta, whose thinking I used to find entertaining at one time, once wrote that he based his life work on a vision that he’d once had, where the gods had asked him to try and avoid having the whole human species, (presumably the seven and a half billion and rising), all arriving in Eternity (or wherever) at the same time. That’s what would happen, supposedly, in the event that we all annihilate ourselves with our weapons of mass destruction.

But I do not buy that. For one thing, I’ve had many, many such visions, and they have been contradictory. The domain of visions does not follow the rules of ordinary rational discourse, as anybody experienced with psychedelics will know. I don’t mean to disparage the value or worth of visionary experiences, only to point out that they can be, indeed usually are, bewildering, inconsistent, contradictory, open to multiple interpretations.

For every one example, like when God speaks to Noah and tells him to build an Ark, where there seems to be some wise divine guidance, there’s zillions of cases of lunacy, like those folk in Syria who felt that Christ’s teaching required them to go around naked and live by eating grass.

I mean, we do have the modern Tower of Babel, everybody talking in different languages and mutually incomprehensible. There are almost countless voices out there, plugging their own particular theme, trying to exert influence and gain support. So which are you going to choose ? How are you going to select and decide ?

You can grab onto one, in the attempt to give your existence meaning, or you can reject them all, and try meaningless nihilism.

For life to be tolerable, you need something that makes you want to wake up and get out of bed. If you are so lost in defeat and despair that you don’t want to wake up and live, then try giving up and exploring the pain and agony that you are submerged in, and see if you can find the strength to begin to rebuild and make something of yourself. You can begin, as Jordan Peterson recommends, by cleaning and tidying your room. Because, essentially, your room is not some abstract space equivalent to all and any other spaces. It IS you. Like the clothes you choose to wear, an extension and expression of what YOU are.

But then, there are homeless people who don’t even have that as an option. It’s not hard to take wrong turns and end up in a mess. At the moment I am so weak and ill that I can hardly do anything much. I absolutely love my room, it’s full of stuff that I love, but it’s not very clean or tidy, mostly because I can hardly hobble about anymore. But I do have my wonderful perch on this sofa, gazing at this screen, which, in my personal estimation, is far superior to anything Elon Musk has come up with, or ever will come up with.

Perhaps I will recover and get stronger again. But even if so, there will still eventually be a limit and the inevitable ending. That above is ME now, my external photographic appearance, amidst all my splendour, perched at the Centre of the Universe 🙂

Despite my affection for quirky thinkers, like Jay Dyer, Brien Foerster, the New Earth Lady and others, I still subscribe more or less, to the mainstream view of history and prehistory, which, despite the many gaps and anomalies, disputation and constant updates, makes most sense to me personally.

You know, there’s a lot of people who cannot clearly recall what happened yesterday or last week, let alone have any joined up memory of their own life back to childhood, even to birth and before, as a few exceptional individuals do. So they have no real individual identity across time. It’s just a mush, a fuzzy blur.

Perhaps that’s the case with this person who seems inappropriately and callously amused by Jordan Peterson’s condition here.

 

That occurred before Peterson’s rapid rise to fame and popularity, at the time when he was very seriously ill. It tells us something about the character, insight and values of his opponents on the Left. (I gather that the comment comes from a socialist, although I don’t know much about that person.)

As a sort of zen buddhist, but also merely as a fairly decent and honourable civilised man, I’m rather disgusted by that individual finding amusement in someone’s agony and distress. Still, this world is full of ignorant, insensitive, immoral, depraved barbarians, and that is not going to change just because I do not like it, is it.

I’ve probably loved some animals and birds I’ve been privileged to share my life with, at least as much, if not more, than humans, which is one reason why I loathe and despise the teaching of Mohammed. I’m somewhat disgusted by much of Islam, but I can sort of accept that if those people in those countries, like Saudi Arabia and Pakistan, really want to live like that, then it’s their problem, not mine. But when Mohammed instructs that all dogs are ‘unclean’ and should be killed because ‘they are of the Devil’, that’s too much for me. I’d be willing to die to keep that appalling doctrine far faraway from where I live.

    The scale and darkness of this phenomenon is a sign of a civilization in a more acute crisis than we knew, a nation overwhelmed by a warp-speed, postindustrial world, a culture yearning to give up, indifferent to life and death, enraptured by withdrawal and nothingness. America, having pioneered the modern way of life, is now in the midst of trying to escape it.

    The InfoWars YouTube channel received a “first strike” warning over a video suggesting that the survivors of the Parkland school shooting were coached and given lines for interviews with various media outlets following the Valentines Day massacre which left 17 dead.

    The video, uploaded to the InfoWars channel with over 2.2 million subscribers, was removed for a violation of YouTube’s “harassment and bullying” policy. It revolved around this clip of Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, who appeared to be having trouble conveying his account of the shooting:

    if you get a computer you can google “youtube alternative”.

    in the results you might find something like this:

    https://www.thetoptens.com/best-alternatives-youtube/

    the top one is vimeo, but there is a brief description of all ten, not that long of a read.

    zippcast says this in one of their reviews:

    If you’re one of those YouTube oldies who want to ditch the current layout and want to experience a similar look how it was back in ’07, ZippCast is that site.

    ZippCast almost feels like using the Web Archive to see what YouTube looked like back then, ZippCast literally uses the YouTube layout from 2007.

    actually some of the others suck.

    update: that site left off one i heard of called flickr. yeah it’s a photo sharing site, but they do videos. rub is, the video limit is 90 seconds. so it’s sort of like sex.

    Hmph, there are so many questionable, indeed ignorant and foolish, assertions in that video…. for instance, there’s masses of anecdotal evidence from people describing past lives. Materialist scientists don’t even look at it, they dismiss it with scorn because it doesn’t fit their blinkered materialist paradigm.

    Hopefully this will serve to illustrate just how far Dr. Peterson is from the actual Alt-Right.

    One thing they comment on is that houses of the Beakers Complex continue in the traditions of those regions. Even when the genetic turnover was nearly total, such as in Britain, houses continue to be constructed as before.

    I imagine this means that efficiency, building materials, and proven designs have a lot to do with house architecture rather than who builds them. Also, well built houses can survive hundreds of years, so it’s not as if the wheel needs to be constantly reinvented.

    Tire tracks stretched across the flat lake bed to the horizon. We followed them in a Suzuki 4×4, looking for clues about what’s happened to Poopó, once Bolivia’s second largest lake, which has vanished into the thin air of the Andean highlands.

    We were driving on the lake bottom, yet we were more than 12,000 feet above sea level. The spring air was lip-chapping dry. Many of the fishing villages that have relied on Lake Poopó for thousands of years have emptied too, and we drove past clusters of abandoned adobe homes. Dust devils danced around them, spinning in warm winds. In the distance we spotted several small aluminum boats that seemed to be floating on water. As we drove closer, the mirage receded, and we found the boats sitting abandoned in the silt. I stepped out of the vehicle. My shoes cracked the salty crust that had formed jagged lumps, like ice cream in a freezer that has melted and recrystallized.

    Police maintain the suspect Nikolas Cruz arrived via an Uber ride at 2:19 p.m. and initiated his attack within 1 minute. If true, that would mean that Cruz would have had to suit up into full metal body armor, put on a full helmet and the whole nine yards, all the while assembling an AR-15 rifle which was purportedly packed into a duffel bag with a number of fully-loaded magazines.

    An affidavit filed by the Broward County Sheriff states: “Cruz stated that he was the gunman who entered the school campus armed with an AR-15 and began shooting students that he saw in the hallways and on the school grounds. Cruz stated that he brought additional loaded magazines to the school campus and kept them hidden in a backpack until he got on campus to begin his assault.”

    An NBC News report gives the official timeline of events:

    Within barely two minutes of being dropped off, Cruz started firing into four classrooms in Building 12, returning to two of them to shoot again, Israel said.

    Cruz then went upstairs to the second floor, where he shot one of his victims, before proceeding to the third floor, where he ditched his rifle and backpack, Israel said.

    He then ran down the stairs and outside, where he blended in with hundreds of terrified students — many of them his former classmates — and eluded officers as he left campus, Israel said.

    Amid the chaos he’d left behind at the school, Cruz made his way to a Walmart store, bought a drink at its Subway restaurant and walked away again, Israel said.

    Such a scenario seems not only entirely unlikely but almost impossible.

    How does the purported shooter exit his Uber ride, put on full body dress, helmet, assemble his rifle, load it and start firing at targets within two minutes?

    I hope Gene Rosen and Robby Parker were not injured.

    Funny how it is always CNN, Wolf Blizter and Anderson Cooper.

    The media is going full metal on the web defending David Hogg saying he is not a crisis actor, CNN emplyee or 2015 Redondo Shores HS grad.

    Parkland, FL is so liberal and ko$her. B$O or Broward’s Sheriff Office and Scott I$rael are so corrupt. BSO has jurisdiction for Parkland but neighboring Coral Springs had more cops there right away. I wonder if Coral Springs PD almost wrecked this false flag. Also timelines. David Hoog is making drill video, with anti gun commentary, at 9:32 am but the call went out at 2 pm? At 9:32 am you could see cops leading kids out in military uniforms? Did Coral Spring PD show up at 2 pm?

    Just remember – these same dual shitizen types in Parkland/West Broward County aka Wasserman Schultz voters are related to the people who murdered 25 million Russian Christians who were not armed. They want to disarm us for the same reason. They also hate Putin because he is a Christian.

    Was this just a fucking drill that they pretended was an actual shooting?

    This one looked like it was cut and dry an actual shooting. Except for Boss Hogg this one looked pretty legit.
    Now with the officers standing outside while this went on, and the fact a teacher saw a full body armor (and helmeted) shooter there is no fucking way this went down like they said.

    Is this another Sandy Hook?

    Unless you people start red-pilling everyone you know, this WILL NEVER END.

    Society is being bullied and brainwashed by the MSM into ignoring the TRUTHS about these shootings. YOU MUST NOT ALLOW THIS.

    We gotta get honest about why these shootings CONTINUE to happen (almost always by the same script) and it takes time and effort to do research. Too much laziness in leaping into a familiar argument and being distracted with MSM smoke and mirrors, rather than digging in and understanding this.

    MANY patterns are readily obvious in nearly ALL of these shooting events:

    failure in law enforcement/intelligence (who are consistently notified of problem individuals ahead of time) to prevent event
    common weaponry – ARs
    event coincides with on site drills run by authorities/law enforcement
    mental health issues and kids on SSRIs and other psychotropic drugs
    eye-witness reports of multiple shooters sharing repetitive contrary observations/testimony to “official” version
    significantly varied descriptions of what the shooter was wearing/doing/problems with timeline
    lack of visual documentation (CCTVs down, non-existent, disappears) – there is not a kid breathing in this country who doesn’t have a cell phone w/ camera
    few people show up at local hospitals
    911, 33, 666 numbers evident–as crazy as this sounds
    the lone-gunman rhetoric
    and ongoing resistance to gun control in DC
    MSM censoring YouTube vids and Twitter conversations and other contrarian proof to the “official storytelling”
    In the recent FL shooting case – in the first press conference following the event, the Sheriff basically threatened the press NOT to pursue any students for information…
    Odd connections between “authority” figures involved in the siting of the event (Sheriff, police dept, school principal, etc.) and other strange events
    and many other “details”
    NONE OF THESE ARE COINCIDENCES! Nor are distractions in MSM’s version of events w/ controlled propaganda.

    What hangs people up when you mention false flags is that the MSM has brainwashed everyone into believing the false flag theory means “people weren’t killed”. That’s entirely untrue – simply consider 9/11. Of course false flags can involve tragedy, injury, deaths. Even children, which is what makes it unconscionable. MSM wants you to immediately dismiss and be repulsed by anyone asking questions about the official narrative propaganda. Don’t fall for it.

    Children will stop being killed when America wakes the fuck up and starts asking the right questions, making the right demands. It’s time.

    Something similar happened to a colored woman in Dallas that witnessed the Officer Tippit murder, just minutes after President Kennedy was assassinated. She told investigators that the man that she saw pull a pistol and kill Officer Tippet looked nothing at all like Lee Harvey Oswald. In fact, she stated there was a total of two men in the car. The Warren Commission never even took her eye witness account of the event into evidence.

    The Warren Commission was chaired by . . . wait for it . . . Alan Dulles, who created the CIA and was pushed out by Kennedy after CIA engineered Bay of Pigs fiasco. Dulles still (unofficially) ran the CIA from his home and likely was the spider at the center of the Dallas operation. (cf. The Devil’s Chessboard by David Talbot).

    “The JFK witness spreadsheet database shows there were at least forty (40) suspicious deaths in the three years following the JFK assassination; at least 33 were unnatural (homicide, accident, suicide, unknown). The probability of 33 unnatural deaths is lower than 1 in 100 TRILLION TRILLION!”

    Experts at Vindolanda, near Hexham, in Northumberland, believe they are “probably the only known surviving examples from the Roman period”.
    Dr Andrew Birley, Vindolanda Trust director of excavations, described the leather bands as an “astonishing” find.
    The gloves were discovered last summer along with a hoard of writing tablets, swords, shoes and bath clogs.
    Made of leather, they were designed to fit snugly over the knuckles and have the appearance of a protective guard.
    ‘Hairs stand up’
    Dr Birley said: “I have seen representations of Roman boxing gloves depicted on bronze statues, paintings and sculptures, but to have the privilege of finding two real leather examples is exceptionally special.

    The eunuch priests likely made their sacrifices in only the morning or evening hours, when the concentration of the gas was highest, Pfanz says. Sacrificial animals were not tall enough to keep their heads fully clear of the CO2 lake, and as they became dizzy, their heads would have dropped even lower, exposing them to higher CO2 concentrations and leading to death by asphyxiation. The priests, however, were tall enough to keep their heads above the dangerous gasses, and may have even stood on stones to add to their height. “They … knew that the deadly breath of [the mythical hellhound] Kerberos only reached a certain maximum height,” Pfanz says.

    We describe a European Acheulean site characterised by an extensive accumulation of large cutting tools (LCT). This type of Lower Paleolithic assemblage, with dense LCT accumulations, has only been found on the African continent and in the Near East until now. The identification of a site with large accumulations of LCTs favours the hypothesis of an African origin for the Acheulean of Southwest Europe. The lithic tool-bearing deposits date back to 293–205 thousand years ago. Our chronological findings confirm temporal overlap between sites with clear “African” Acheulean affinities and Early Middle Paleolithic sites found elsewhere in the region. These complex technological patterns could be consistent with the potential coexistence of different human species in south-western Europe during the Middle Pleistocene.

    Elizabeth Walker, Palaeolithic & Mesolithic Archaeologist and Head of Collections at National Museum Cardiff, talks about a Neanderthal hand axe, which dates back to c. 60,000-35,000 BC

    This hand axe was found during excavations at Coygan Cave, near Laugharne, Carmarthenshire, in advance of the cave’s destruction by quarrying in the 1960s. It is of a form typically made by a Neanderthal and was left at the cave with another similar tool sometime between 60,000 and 35,000 years ago.

    Findings like this hint that Neanderthals may have lived in the Carmarthenshire area, but we have no evidence of their physical remains. The two axes we have were found near the wall of the cave, and it’s been suggested they were deliberately cached by their owners, who intended to return to the cave to use them on a future visit.

    Since at least 2011 the U.S. military is manipulating social media via sock puppets and trolls:

    A Californian corporation has been awarded a contract with United States Central Command (Centcom), which oversees US armed operations in the Middle East and Central Asia, to develop what is described as an “online persona management service” that will allow one US serviceman or woman to control up to 10 separate identities based all over the world.

    The Centcom contract stipulates that each fake online persona must have a convincing background, history and supporting details, and that up to 50 US-based controllers should be able to operate false identities from their workstations “without fear of being discovered by sophisticated adversaries”.
    It was then wisely predicted that other countries would follow up:

    The discovery that the US military is developing false online personalities – known to users of social media as “sock puppets” – could also encourage other governments, private companies and non-government organisations to do the same.
    Israel is long known for such information operations in which its paid trolls not only comment on issues on social media but actively manipulate Wikipedia entries. Such astroturfing has since become a common tool in commercial marketing campaigns.

    With the new money the State Department will expand its Global Engagement Center (GEC) which is running “public diplomacy”, aka propaganda, abroad:

    from a previous thread

    Samuel Andrews
    “It looks like red hair frequencies more than quadrupled in frequency after the Beaker folk arrived in the British Isles. This makes it a uniquely British development, however, it could have happened simultaneously all over northern Europe including the northeast.”

    this is certainly plausible and if true doesn’t lead anywhere much except figuring out what would cause red hair to be selected in certain spots but not others.

    however Udmurts http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-29950844 and for me more importantly Chinese records of northern barbarians having red hair and green eyes make me wonder if there are other more interesting possibilities.

    just to see where it leads if we assume the Chinese records are correct then that might imply:

    1) there may be other genes that cause/caused red hair which haven’t been identified and which have been replaced or maybe switched off in some way since then.

    for example something like the mutation in TYRP which apparently causes blondism in Melanesians:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melanesians#Incidence_of_blond_hair_in_Melanesia

    one of the noticeable things about red haired people is a reduced ability to tan – more likely to freckle instead – and so *if* (1) is correct then one possible explanation for it might be

    2) a newer version of skin lightening allele that included an improved ability to tan being selected for after the ice age among people who already had the red hair version.

    not suggesting this happened – just a logical exercise to see where it leads.

    “Going back to the very earliest finds, there was also evidence of stone tool production dating between about 13,000 and 10,000 BC at Milltimber, a near unprecedented body of evidence which pushes back our understanding of human activity in north east Scotland by several thousand years. The same site revealed spreads of flints along with large pits dating between 10,000 BC to 4,100 BC that could have been used by hunter-gatherers to trap deer, elks or aurochs (an ancestor of modern bison). What is particularly exciting is that these finds have been made in an area where our knowledge is rapidly expanding through research projects such as Mesolithic Deeside.”

    The discoveries made during the works were not confined to the environs of the River Dee. A structure dating between 7,000 BC to 6,700 BC was also found at Standingstones, in the hills to the west of Dyce. This tent-like shelter was likely only used for a few nights by a small group of people while they collected nuts, berries and tubers or hunted animals in the immediate area.

    ““It’s not necessarily a story of violent conquest,” Armit said.”

    This is what’s known as a rear-guard action. If they can’t deny migration any more, for the love of God don’t allow conquest. The noble savages were peaceful until Imperialism and greed came along. As I think Thomas Kuhn said, new ideas don’t win out – old professors just go quiet, retire or die.

    Ha ha, true that there does seem to be natural bias to interpret it as bloodless as possible. I think it is more likely that archaeologists are trying to be careful with the available evidence. I have several very large papers I haven’t been able to fully read from last year concerning weapon use at this time. Pretty gory stuff.
    Keep in mind though that there was a very sharp decline in many of these populations hundreds of years before the migrations. Apocalyptic plague is likely based on an increase in mobility (Native America)and descent into increasingly destructive Neolithic wars seems evident. God’s wrath ends with CW encroachments running cattle and pigs through the fields of farmers. And everything goes haywire from there.
