This video takes a look at Sophia, the A.I. robot made by David Hanson and Ben Goertzel of Hanson Robotics, as well as some other more ancient characters who were named “Sophia.” We’ll also take a look at the “Singularity,” an event of gargantuan proportions in which artificial intelligence will become as smart as (and thus begins the time when they begin to get smarter than) humans. Has the Singularity already happened? Ask Sophia—or just watch this vid to find out! Lolol Calling Sophia a mere “robot” is actually quite misleading, and this video explores the concept of the inevitable “A.I. Mind Cloud” that has already become a growing force to be reckoned with, especially since SingularityNET went online last week on Nov. 29, 2017.

In Light Dave
Part of our Intent for the One People Community will be to use local manufacturing to create items needed locally and cheaply. We already have someone who is intending to bring 3D printers here to help with this.
In an effort to bring some light as to what is possible with these manifold systems, I am going to post a series of articles here which describe the printers, what they are capable of and what is already possible via existing designs.
Key Concept Behind 3D Printers
Manufacturing of complex parts, machinery and molds has always required large warehouses, huge budgets and corporate over control; in the main. 3D printing allows for the small time designer, builder and manufacturing to produce high quality goods with out the hands of corporate control getting involved. They literally condense an entire warehouse worth of high quality production systems into something portable and local.
This concept is the foundation of why 3D printers are so powerful. Now the BIG question everyone wants to know is “what can they build?”
This question is answered by getting into the design of the printers themselves. Each printer has its own capabilities and limitations. Some can only use plastics, some only work with metals, some work with both – and all have limitations based on their size and software used to create the final product.
Implementation of designs and fleshing out of final products is a result of working with the designers and printers to produce a part which works. For example, if the end result is a laptop computer, this may require producing components in 3D printers that will later be assembled. And in time, a printer for assembly could also be created.
The key is that designers and builders can work together, with out having to jump through complex loop holes, to create items easily for whatever use they see fit. The limitations are only temporary as a new 3D printer can be designed to conceivably suite any need. The question is not so much what can’t they do, it is what do you want, and are you going to work with a network to create that system. The sky is the limit!
Lets begin to review some of the data available.
David, over at LightworkersXM has been focusing much of his work on building a network of manufacturers that are capable of addressing many of the needs of designers and builders. Networking, or Co-creation is the key. If your design does not have a printer that can create it, it is possible to reach out to your network and produce a system specially for your needs; again at a cheap cost and low turn around time in comparison to big industrial facilities. As the network expands, and their capabilities increase, more will be available to create.
3D Printing Energy Global Network : MISSION I’M POSSIBLE
I would like to introduce you to an amazing site and a brilliant group of people who are working together to make a difference in the world.
I first met Dave through the To-BE Community skype room and Nick and Dave and I immediately hit it off. …. Being from a British family, I’m even immune to his caustic brit wit, lol.
Dave is part of a global network of people using 3D Printers to give the planet an upgrade. I talked to Ralph Ring about Dave’s work in our conversation with Ralph and Marsha last weekend HERE, and the Rings were very excited by what has been put together in this area of 3D printing.
Dave and Nick and I had a long talk two nights ago where we bashed around all sorts of ideas for many many ways to utilize the network- in the community in Morocco and globally. One of the major things we discussed was the need of a “better base substance” than what is available on the market to use with 3D printers right now, which is: Plastics.
H E M P !!!!!!!
What we need is a way to use Hempcrete- which is literally a “concrete” made from hemp, water and lime- in a 3D printer!
So I am tossing this out there you all of you: If you know of someone who knows how, has a method, has a theory….. Please contact Dave or I right away!!!
(doing a quick search on “hempcrete” will give you a huge understanding of just how amazing and versatile this product is)
Very soon we will be getting Dave and Ralph together for a chat.

What is it all about ?
3D Printing Energy Global Network :
Brief description of The creation of 3D Printing Energy Global Network:
The 3D Printing industry is undoubtedly the fastest growing futuristic industry right now which basically gives people in their homes the ability to create almost any item of personal value for themselves on a 3D printer that builds in layers and produces NO WASTE. Those household items can be of their own style and design too with a little bit of creative 3D Building computer knowledge: This is ideal for people who have their own vision or small eco-project of the future.
Now imagine an ever growing team of Spiritually awakened Inventors, Scientists, Engineers and enthusiasts getting together and adding the subject of Free Energy to the 3D Printing Design Files Portfolio: This is exactly what has happened and this group of Brainstormers have grouped together to discuss the potentiality of adding more Free energy based 3D Printable projects to the station set up network to offer on an open source basis for others to replicate at home or in their own small project office.
Bringing Nikola Tesla back into your own home :
Free Energy has been suppressed for well over 100 years however what the Global ruling elite ( Euro Royals, Rothschilds, Rockefellers and Vatican/Jesuit Rulers in Switzerland) have not managed to suppress is the readily available information on the internet. The information to make a free energy vehicles and devices has been around for well over 80 years, it is this hidden information that is now becoming available, due to the vigilance in such networks, such as this.
Ancient technologies and energy.
The owners of all current Energy companies are a massive secret societies that the likes of John Lennon and President Kennedy spoke of in the 60′s and 70′s, these controllers have stealthily been in corrupt control of every country in the world (with few exceptions) through a clever network of deceit for 300 years commonly know as the Cabal, Illuminati, Sabbatean mafia or Plain and simply
The real source of this global control not only dates back even further to Roman Empirical days and even further back in ancient times, however the more research one embarks on, one finds that free energy technologies were available on earth and etched in stone going back more than 25,000 years.
Nikola Tesla should be a household name : WHO?
Do you not find it rather strange that All schools and colleges do not even mention The greatest modern day inventor of all times? For those who are still unsure about energy technology suppression
can look up on Google or Youtube Nikola Tesla:
Today, Worldwide Suppressed Energy Intelligence can be found in Cars that run on water and many free energy devices from Philippines through India into Europe and over to the Americas and Worldwide the inventors of Generators (Magno/Electro) that run on the Quantum sourcefield are widespread. Nowadays this technology is convertible on to the computer in 3D Format and can be made readily available for the 3D printing Energy Global Network Home Stations that are freshly setting up worldwide:
Update of the current new stations:
We shall be reporting an update on the radio show at Expanding U on Friday 8:00PM Est
Mission (I’m Possible) Statement: Mission One
It is the intention of the 3D Printing Energy Global Network to reach more inventors in time and store their files in our open source database to be held on this site xi4.com . The more devices that can be converted into modern 3D Computer software programs that can be 3D printed, the more will be made readily available all files and folders from inventors of Free Energy related devices (Ie: water, electric or magnetic) This will enable other people to Pioneer their own groups worldwide from their own homes where they can access these files and in addition become part of an otherwise Thought of, complicated industry:
Our aim also is to provide concise instructions on Building your own 3D Printer Station and technical support to get Your own station set up and producing items for your Eco Village project or your own community. The vision in return of these groups who become apart of thisopen source network would be not only to provide and produce their own items for their own income and return, also to give rise to providing self replicating 3D Printers for others to pioneer likewise, their own splinter stations within your local vicinity.
The Game Changer : Funding and Finance:
Whilst the modern day method of crowdsourcing is the prefered method of funding these days We seek like minded people who value this as THE GAME CHANGER so much so that they would like to ensure that this gets the best possible start by assisting in the funding of the database centre with a view of helping the set up process of visiting all new stations to maximise their potential. This of course costs money in the ‘Auld paradigm’ and we seek a sponsor the ensure that this takes place : Currently we have set this up out of our own pocket and could do with an injection of financial assistance : To contribute in any way to this Game Changer please state your good intentions in the Contact form below:
Starting your own Station or Groups:
If you would like to form a New Group Network Station you will need people within your team that have attained basic knowledge in Mechanical/Electrical and 3D computer design and software. To request to join this network please fill in the form in the box at the foot of this article and state any relevant skills you may have. The minimum amount needed to form your own station will be approximately $800-$1000. For those with greater plans, a minimum of $2000 for more professional start up arrangements.
Enthusiasts and Model makers are often multi skilled people who reach for the imagination when needed and are often very valuable to such a team set up as they have the patience needed to set up and build your 3D Printer kit which all helps you pioneer your own station set up in terms of knowledge, maintenance and project device building operations.
What is the Rep Rap Community and how does it help us with Station set ups: PART 1
Rep Rap is often a word that many people run from when it is mentioned and needs not be misunderstood, Invented in 2004 by Dr Adrian Bowyer in Bath University in UK as a community of inventors and scientists in all disciplines not unlike we are starting in 3D Printing Energy Global Stations Network, Their sole purpose was to create 3D printing technology that would end up replicating itself.
Dr Adrian Bowyer explains why RepRap ! He also explains The Rep Rap Project ( Replicating Rapid Prototyper)
‘Symbiotics in your own home’: Or a “Computer controlled Glu gun”
With materials that you can even grow at home.

Here is another article discussing one of the Metal Printers and their capabilities
Free Form Metal 3D Printer is a 3Doodler on Steroids
In May of last year, Juho relayed news of a free form 3D printer called Mataerial, by Petr Novikov and Saša Jokić from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) and Joris Laarman Studio. The machine, a material extruding robot arm, can print layer by layer onto any surface at any angle by using a fast-curing resin. Since then, the project has evolved to print metal.
Something really weird has been found on the wall of a cave in Nevada, and it is shaking a lot of people up. Two paranormal investigators named MK Davis and Don Monroe claim to have stumbled upon the handprint of an ancient giant in Lovelock Cave, and the pictures that have been released to the public are absolutely startling. If this handprint is real, it is estimated that it would have belonged to someone 18 feet tall. And what makes all of this even more compelling is that there is a very old Native American tradition that says that a tribe of red-haired giants was burned inside that cave a very long time ago. So could we actually be looking at solid evidence that the old Native American tradition about the red-haired giants is actually real?
There has been a tremendous amount of interest in this particular cave going all the way back to 1911. At that time, two guano miners claimed that they discovered several sets of giant bones inside the cave…
In 1911 David Pugh and James Hart, two guano miners (yes, mining bat poo is really a thing) were excavating a cave on the eastern side of Nevada when they found something intriguing buried under 250 tons of excrement.
According to the men’s bizarre tale, hidden beneath six feet of bat crap they discovered several sets of giant bones, remains which many now believe belong to the Si-Te-Cah, a storied Paiute tribe of red-haired cannibal giants. Legend has it that the last remaining giants were burned alive inside the cave thousands of years ago.
Unfortunately, nobody knows where those bones are today, and without hard evidence the excitement over that cave subsided over the years.
But now this discovery by MK Davis and Don Monroe is renewing interest in Lovelock cave. According to Paranormal Geeks Radio, this handprint has a number of characteristics that point to it being authentic…
This knife and its sheath have been used to get a measurement. It is 18 inches. Look at Don’s hand compared to print! If the proportions are equal to regular humans, this being would be 18 feet tall!
Besides what appears to be dermal ridges showing in the soot/fat mix that appears to be the basis of this hand print (from the cave ceiling and further legitimizing the story of a conflagration with the giants inside), the impression shows more pressure on the thenar eminence of the palm and the first three fingers, which is typical for anyone pushing or lifting something heavy (just hold your hands in front of your head as if you’re cradling a boulder – the inner aspect of your hand settles that weight).
Posted below is a video of MK Davis discussing this discovery in more detail. What he has to say is quite compelling…
But this isn’t the only discovery of this nature that has come out in recent years.
Last year, a German news source broke the story of a 15 inch long human finger that had been photographed in Egypt. The photographs of the finger were reportedly taken by a researcher named Gregor Spörri in 1988. The finger appeared to have been mummified, and from top to bottom it was approximately 15 inches long. According to the German news source, it is estimated that the creature that this finger came from would have been about 16 feet tall.
This really is a remarkable photo. If you look closely, you can even see where the fingernail would have been…
Unfortunately, nobody knows where this finger is today. Spörri said that he had to pay “an old man from a grave robber dynasty” 300 dollars to see the finger and take photographs of it. And since 1988 there have been no other reports of this finger.
Below is another view of the finger. In this one, you can see part of a bone coming out of the end of it…
Another very strange piece of evidence that has gotten a lot of attention in recent years is “Goliath’s Footprint” in South Africa. It is a footprint that is approximately 4 feet long, and it is located near the town of Mpaluzi, which is close to the Swaziland border. A picture of Goliath’s Footprint can be seen below…
If you look carefully at the photograph, you can even see that there were five toes and that the big toe was the largest of the toes.
Posted below is a video that someone took of Goliath’s Footprint. This video footage is quite stunning…
So what does all of this mean?
Did extremely large giants once roam the ancient world?
To many, such a notion is completely absurd, but the truth is that there are a whole host of ancient stories and legends that claim that giants once existed on this planet.
And even the Bible makes such a claim. In Genesis 6:4, we read the following…
There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.
So what do you think?
Are we looking at evidence that giants once lived on Earth?

Jeremy Rys is a physicist, researcher and media producer who runs the website Alien Scientist as well as the popular Youtube channel that puts forth a rational approach to Fringe Science, Aliens, and Conspiracy Theories. In the first hour, we’ll discuss resources and sustainability. Jeremy explains how nature will sort out what we don’t. Then, we’ll get into government black op programs and technology. We’ll also discuss recent news that physicists have created a quantum gas capable of reaching temperatures below absolute zero, paving the way for future quantum inventions. In hour two, we touch upon what genetic enhancements may bring, the end result being something similar to the greys. That leads us into a discussion about alien abductions, UFO files and secret space programs. Later, we’ll discuss 911 as the dividing point in history.

Creating armor that renders a soldier invisible. Stimulating the brain to suppress sleep for days. Arming sharks with chemical implants and cameras to work as spies.
This year the Pentagon will spend $78 billion — about half of all government research and development dollars — on a variety of projects, according to the American Association for the Advancement for Science (AAAS).
The vast majority – about $68 billion – goes to traditional spending, like weapons development and space systems. But some fringe research mimics the best of science fiction.
There seems to be no failure of imagination in advancing warfare, but some experts fear these farfetched projects show a little too much imagination.
Just this month, the government confirmed that an Ohio Air Force laboratory had asked for $7.5 million to build a nonlethal “gay bomb,” a weapon that would encourage enemies to make love, not war. The weapon would use strong aphrodisiacs to make enemy troops so sexually attracted to each other that they’d lose interest in fighting.
Last year, scientists at Boston University developed brain implants that could steer sharklike dog fish with a phantom odor.
Just three years ago, the military funded a specious study of psychic teleportation, according to the Federation of American Scientists. An 88-page report prepared by the Air Force Research Lab contended that moving through mind powers is “quite real and can be controlled.”
“The military has a lot of crazy ideas,” said Noah Shactman, editor of the Wired blog Danger Room. “But it’s hard to turn these ideas into action.”
In her book “Imaginary Weapons,” military expert Sharon Weinberger writes that the federal government is spending taxpayer money on war technology at a pace of about $50,000 per second.
“If you don’t support long-term investment in funding risky science and technology, you won’t get breakthroughs,” Weinberger told ABC News.
But investing in wacky weaponry can also have the opposite effect.
“There is more pressure to fund fringy things, much the same way a bankrupted person will be tempted to play the lottery,” said Weinberger. “There is the risk that agencies starved of funding will invest in schemes that promise high payoff, but aren’t a sound investment,” she added.
The Spark Behind New Medicines and the Internet
Scientists are exploring beamed speaker systems that only one person can hear and foam that makes the enemy slip and fall. And they are using something akin to microwaves to penetrate the skin and make the enemy feel as if they’re on fire, according to Shactman.
The controversial hafnium bomb — originally a $30 million project to build a nuclear grenade — never got off the ground. The idea was either “the beginning of a new superbomb, or the biggest fizzle since cold fusion,” Weinberg wrote in a 1998 article in the Washington Post.
“When it comes to Pentagon funding it’s important that imagination is tempered by two things: the laws of nature and the laws of the budget,” said Weinberger.
Some of the military’s most fantastical ideas come from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). The $3 billion agency — which laid the foundation for today’s Internet — says it is the “technological engine” for the Department of Defense.
Inspired by the U.S.-Soviet space race during the Cold War, DARPA’s mantra is “to prevent technological surprise for us and to create technological surprise for our adversaries.”
“We focus on research that has a high risk of failure, but if it succeeds, it makes a revolutionary difference in national security,” said spokesman Jan Walker. “We spend a lot of time talking to the senior leadership to ask them, ‘What are the things that keep you up at night?'”
DARPA is spending $15 million to use “megamaterials” developed by Duke University scientists to build shoot-through, invisible, one-way, self-healing shields for soldiers in urban battlefields. By bending light the wrong way, an optical trick can make objects disappear.
The agency created Stealth, Global Hawk, Predator and command and control systems that are being used today in Iraq. They also funded water purification systems and translation devices.
“We have a robust investment in urban warfare,” said Walker. “We worried well before 9/11 about biological defense before the anthrax threats.”
But Alexis Debat, senior fellow for national security and terrorism at the Nixon Center in Washington, D.C., told ABC News that many of these inventions have had “little value in the fight against terrorism.”
“It’s a very American thing to think that everything and anything can be solved by technology,” said Debat, a consultant for ABC News. He said the military needs to focus more on human resources, recruiting more Arabic speakers and using old-fashioned police work in communities in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Military writer Weinberger agrees that weapons research is still dominated by projects more appropriate for the Cold War — like the F-22 aircraft.
“It’s a really fine aircraft with some great technology, but not of much use for the war on terror,” said Weinberger. “It was proposed at one point that it could help hunt down IEDs (improvised explosive devices). But the idea of using an aircraft that costs in the tens of millions of dollars to defeat a homemade bomb that costs a few hundred dollars is a bit absurd.”
Much of the focus of the latest research is in neuroscience. Researchers at Stanford and Columbia universities are exploring the use of magnetic stimulation to keep soldiers in battle awake for days while preserving their cognitive function.
The military industrial complex, coined in the age of President Dwight Eisenhower, is alive and well today, according to Debat, whose research into how Muslims fight is partially funded by the Department of Defense.
“It’s an unwritten rule in the U.S. economy that defense companies play an important role in the stock market as anchors of stability,” he said.
“Living here in Washington, you have no idea how we are inventing enemies,” said Debat. “Hundreds of people are trying to figure out how to make China our enemy because there is so much money and power in the Pentagon.”
Still, “risky” research can offer advances that have ramifications far beyond the battlefield.
DARPA is funding research to create a prosthetics arm that can function like a real hand. The device gives sensory perception back to the fingers through nervous system signals.
Researchers at MIT are developing an artificial “exoskeleton” that will not only diagnose a soldier’s injury, but treat it.
Drugs have been developed to enhance aerobic function without lung injury.
Global positioning systems, composite materials for aircraft and many medical advances owe the military for their entry into the civilian world.
“Much has carried over into the economy, so if you put it all together, it’s worth it,” said Kei Koizumi, research and development policy director at AAAS.
“The technology was built on years of earlier science and development,” Weinstein said. “No one woke up one day and said, ‘I’m going to build a stealth aircraft.’ So when you ask: Do we take national security risks if we don’t try crazy things, my answer is, ‘No.’ Should we try risky things? Absolutely.”
“Let’s let U.S. enemies do crazy things,” she said. “And let’s make sure the U.S. government does smart things.”

More than 12 years after a car accident left him in a vegetative state, a Canadian man has begun communicating with doctors who are monitoring his brain activity through Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scans.
The BBC reports that 39-year-old Scott Routley has been able to communicate to doctors that he is not in any pain, marking the first time an uncommunicative, severely brain-damaged patient has been able to give direct answers regarding his care and treatment.
“Scott has been able to show he has a conscious, thinking mind,” British neuroscientist Adrian Owen told the BBC. “We have scanned him several times, and his pattern of brain activity shows he is clearly choosing to answer our questions. We believe he knows who and where he is.”
Owen leads a team at the Brain and Mind Institute at the University of Western Ontario, which used fMRI scans to measure responses from Routley.
Traditional tests have continued to indicate that Routley is in a vegetative state, with no relevant brain activity. Owen and other doctors say this means medical textbooks will literally need to be re-written when it comes to evaluating patients suffering from severe brain injuries.
Routley’s previous neurologist said that for a decade all test results taken from scans of Routley’s brain indicated he was not experiencing any mental activity.
“I was impressed and amazed that he was able to show these cognitive responses,” said University Hospital’s Bryan Young. “He had the clinical picture of a typical vegetative patient and showed no spontaneous movements that looked meaningful.”
Owen says the results could lead to improved patient care for those living with severe brain injuries, making a major improvement in the daily life of patients, including routine tasks such as when they prefer to be fed or bathed.
And since fMRI scans do not use radiation and are considered easy to use by trained technicians, it’s likely doctors could use them to communicate with patients on a regular basis.

SIMFEROPIL/ AQMESCIT (QHA) – A Ukrainian scientist discovered the oldest pyramid in the world. Most interestingly, it was found in the most beautiful corner of the country, in Crimea.
As the ICTV channel reported, the finding was revealed by accident, when during his test alternative methods of finding water Ukrainian scientist Vitalii Goh discovered underground unknown object, which proved to be a giant pyramid of 45 meters in height and a length of about 72 meters. Goh said that the pyramid was built during the time of the dinosaurs.
“Crimean pyramid” has a truncated top, like a Mayan pyramid, but its appearance is more like an Egyptian. It is hollow inside, and a mummy of unknown creature is buried under the foundation.
“Under the foundation is a small body in the form of a mummy long 1.3-1.4 meters with a crown on his head.”
“There is a resonance chamber of so-called Sphinx. The pyramids were built in the era of the dinosaurs,” says the scientist in an interview with ICTV.
It remains unknown who build the pyramid.
The unique building is the oldest on the planet, says Vitalii Goh.
