It may sound like science fiction, but it’s a future that Facebook is building inside our labs. And today, we’ll share our vision for how people will interact with the future of teleportation.

There is an end times Christian movie from the 1990’s called Apocalypse 2: Revelation, and while I very enjoy watching it I will also admit it’s a tad dated and a tad cheesy, but in the best possible way if you love end times bible prophecy. A full copy of that film is at the bottom of this article, and I highly suggest you watch it. The main scene I want you to see in the scene in which the actors put on Augmented Reality (AR) glasses on something called the Day of Wonders.

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” Revelation 13:16-18 (KJB)

When you watch that scene I want you to then come back to this article to see the connection. As it turns out, instead of being a cheesy, Christian end times movie, it’s actually more like predictive programming. Facebook is spending hundreds of millions to create the Day of Wonders. I would highly advise you have nothing to do with anything from Facebook Reality Labs, augmented reality, teleportation or any of that junk.

Inside Facebook Reality Labs: The Next Era of Human-Computer Interaction

FROM TECH AT FACEBOOK: Imagine a world where a lightweight, stylish pair of glasses could replace your need for a computer or smartphone. You’d have the ability to feel physically present with friends and family — no matter where in the world they happened to be — and contextually-aware AI to help you navigate the world around you, as well as rich 3D virtual information within arm’s reach. Best of all, they’d let you look up and stay present in the world around you rather than pulling your attention away to the periphery in the palm of your hand. This is a device that wouldn’t force you to choose between the real world and the digital world.

The AR interaction challenge

Facebook Reality Labs (FRL) Chief Scientist Michael Abrash has called AR interaction “one of the hardest and most interesting multi-disciplinary problems around,” because it’s a complete paradigm shift in how humans interact with computers. The last great shift began in the 1960s when Doug Engelbart’s team invented the mouse and helped pave the way for the graphical user interfaces (GUIs) that dominate our world today. The invention of the GUI fundamentally changed HCI for the better — and it’s a sea change that’s held for decades.

But all-day wearable AR glasses require a new paradigm because they will be able to function in every situation you encounter in the course of a day. They need to be able to do what you want them to do and tell you what you want to know when you want to know it, in much the same way that your own mind works — seamlessly sharing information and taking action when you want it, and not getting in your way otherwise.

“In order for AR to become truly ubiquitous, you need low-friction, always-available technology that’s so intuitive to use that it becomes an extension of your body,” says Abrash. “That’s a far cry from where HCI is today. So, like Engelbart, we need to invent a completely new type of interface — one that places us at the center of the computing experience.”

This AR interface will need to be proactive rather than reactive. It will be an interface that turns intention into action seamlessly, giving us more agency in our own lives and allowing us to stay present with those around us.

Importantly, it will need to be socially acceptable in every respect — secure, private, unobtrusive, easy to learn, easy to use, comfortable/all-day wearable, effortless, and reliable.

As we build the next computing platform centered around people, we’re committed to driving this innovation forward in a responsible, privacy-centric way. That’s why we’ve crafted a set of principles for responsible innovation that guide all our work in the lab and help ensure we build products that are designed with privacy, safety, and security at the forefront. In short, the AR interface will require a complete rethinking of how humans and computers interact, and it will transform our relationship with the digital world every bit as much as the GUI has.

The problem space, explored

Say you decide to walk to your local cafe to get some work done. You’re wearing a pair of AR glasses and a soft wristband. As you head out the door, your Assistant asks if you’d like to listen to the latest episode of your favorite podcast. A small movement of your finger lets you click “play.”

As you enter the cafe, your Assistant asks, “Do you want me to put in an order for a 12-ounce Americano?” Not in the mood for your usual, you again flick your finger to click “no.”

You head to a table, but instead of pulling out a laptop, you pull out a pair of soft, lightweight haptic gloves. When you put them on, a virtual screen and keyboard show up in front of you and you begin to edit a document. Typing is just as intuitive as typing on a physical keyboard and you’re on a roll, but the noise from the cafe makes it hard to concentrate.

Recognizing what you’re doing and detecting that the environment is noisy, the Assistant uses special in-ear monitors (IEMs) and active noise cancellation to soften the background noise. Now it’s easy to focus. A server passing by your table asks if you want a refill. The glasses know to let their voice through, even though the ambient noise is still muted, and proactively enhance their voice using beamforming. The two of you have a normal conversation while they refill your coffee despite the noisy environment — and all of this happens automatically.

A friend calls, and your Assistant automatically sends it to voicemail so as not to interrupt your current conversation. And when it’s time to leave to pick up the kids based on your calendared event, you get a gentle visual reminder so you won’t be late due to the current traffic conditions.

Building the AR interface

FRL Research has brought together a highly interdisciplinary team made up of research scientists, engineers, neuroscientists, and more, led by Research Science Director Sean Keller, all striving to solve the AR interaction problem and arrive at computing’s next great paradigm shift.

“We classically think of input and output from the computer’s perspective, but AR interaction is a special case where we’re building a new type of wearable computer that’s sensing, learning, and acting in concert with users as they go about their day,” says Keller, who joined FRL Research to build a five-person team which has since grown to a team of hundreds of world-class experts in the span of just six years. “We want to empower people, enabling each and every one of us to do more and to be more — so our AR interaction models are human-centric.”

At Facebook Connect in 2020, Abrash explained that an always-available, ultra-low-friction AR interface will be built on two technological pillars: The first is ultra-low-friction input, so when you need to act, the path from thought to action is as short and intuitive as possible.

You might gesture with your hand, make voice commands, or select items from a menu by looking at them — actions enabled by hand-tracking cameras, a microphone array, and eye-tracking technology. But ultimately, you’ll need a more natural, unobtrusive way of controlling your AR glasses. We’ve explored a range of neural input options, including electromyography (EMG). While several directions have potential, wrist-based EMG is the most promising. This approach uses electrical signals that travel from the spinal cord to the hand, in order to control the functions of a device based on signal decoding at the wrist. The signals through the wrist are so clear that EMG can detect finger motion of just a millimeter. That means input can be effortless — as effortless as clicking a virtual, always-available button — and ultimately it may even be possible to sense just the intention to move a finger.

The second pillar is the use of AI, context, and personalization to scope the effects of your input actions to your needs at any given moment. This is about building an interface that can adapt to you, and it will require building powerful AI models that can make deep inferences about what information you might need or things you might want to do in various contexts, based on an understanding of you and your surroundings, and that can present you with the right set of choices. Ideally, you’ll only have to click once to do what you want to do or, even better, the right thing may one day happen without you having to do anything at all. Our goal is to keep you in control of the experience, even when things happen automatically.

While the fusion of contextually-aware AI with ultra-low-friction input has tremendous potential, important challenges remain — like how to pack the technology into a comfortable, all-day wearable form factor and how to provide the rich haptic feedback needed to manipulate virtual objects. Haptics also let the system communicate back to the user (think about the vibration of a mobile phone). To address these challenges, we need soft, all-day wearable systems. In addition to their deep work across ultra-low-friction input and contextualized AI, Keller’s team is leveraging soft, wearable electronics — devices worn close to or on the skin’s surface where they detect and transmit data — to develop a wide range of technologies that can be comfortably worn all day on the hand and wrist, and that will give us a much richer bi-directional path for communication. These include EMG sensors and wristbands.

AR glasses interaction will ultimately benefit from a novel integration of multiple new and/or improved technologies, including neural input, hand tracking and gesture recognition, voice recognition, computer vision, and several new input technologies like IMU finger-click and self-touch detection. It will require a broad range of contextual AI capabilities, from scene understanding to visual search, all with the goal of making it easier and faster to act on the instructions that you’d already be sending to your device.

And to truly center human needs in these new interactions, they will need to be built responsibly from the ground up, with a focus on the user’s needs for privacy and security. These devices will change the way we interact with the world and each other, and we will need to give users total control over those interactions.

Building the AR interface is a difficult, long-term undertaking, and there are years of research yet to do. But by planting the seeds now, we believe we can get to AR’s Engelbart moment and then get that interface into people’s hands over the next 10 years, even as it continues to evolve for decades to come.

The Tech Titans Control Every Aspect Of Our Global Society From Determining Your News Feed To Electing Leaders, Can Anything Stop Them Now?

The tech titans have created a world that they own and that they control, not knowing that they are controlled by Satan to carry all this out

The headlines today have been shocking as for most of the day a majority of cell phone users have been experiencing a total blackout of service for still unexplained reasons. Federal agencies are ‘urgently investigating’ whether the massive cellular outage that plagued Americans on Thursday was a cyberattack. It brings to mind the dystopian thriller produced by Barack Obama for Netflix called ‘Leave The World Behind’ about civil war and EMP attacks from the government. One thing is for sure, our global society is controlled by technology and the tech titans to such a degree that everything has become a conspiracy. No one believes anything anymore, and they shouldn’t.

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.” Matthew 24:4 (KJB)

Just about every headline I see is about something I don’t like, don’t want and didn’t vote for. I watch tech titans with messianic delusions trying to create a techno-theocracy where they rule as gods, determining what we’re allowed to consume on a daily basis. They lock us down, infect us with gain-of-function viruses and then mandate we receive injections for the ‘greater good’, gaslighting us about ‘slight’ side effects as the casualties mount in the millions. The next president? It will be whoever they pick, and whoever it is you’ll get the same result. Don’t be surprised if it’s Michelle Obama. Playtime is over, they’re not taking prisoners. History is being recast, and this time the Nazis win.

People like Bill Gates, Elon Musk, George Soros, and all the others are working in harmony with a single goal in mind, even if they themselves aren’t aware of it. They are preparing this world to receive Antichrist. Everything new invention they fund and release brings us closer and closer to the Mark of the Beast System. We all dream of seeing people like Bill Gates being brought to trial to answer for their crimes, but they never will in this life. Why? Luke 22:53, “…but this is your hour, and the power of darkness.”

I wish I had better news for you, but I don’t, we are too far along on the timeline and this sin-cursed lost world has an unbreakable date with the coming Antichrist. So in the meantime, stay in the Book, stand against the world system, help us send out Bibles, and preach deliverance to the captives through the shed blood of Jesus Christ while we wait for the Rapture. That’s the memo.

Release Of The Apple Vision Pro Ushers In Dystopian World Where Humans And Computers Are Irreversibly Connected As We’ve Long Warned You

Published

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

By charging $3,499 for a souped-up headset, Apple is telling us exactly what the Vision Pro is. This isn’t a toy for normal people. It’s a dystopian device for a dystopian world.

The 1999 movie Revelation 2: Apocalypse showed us a dystopian world about to go into the time of the great Tribulation, and in it, they presented a novel way of administering the Mark of the Beast, using a VR headset. Here we are 25 years later, and the world has moved much closer to that reality, brought to us by the company whose first computer sold for $666.00, and whose logo is an apple with a bite missing. Now with their Apple Vison Pro mixed-reality headset, they are enticing you to enter their dystopian end times world. Don’t.

And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.” Revelation 14:11 (KJB)

We’ve long told you there is a 3-Step Process to complete the transhumanist master plan. Step 1 was getting the whole world connected online and in front of a computer, and that officially began in 1994. Step 2 was to get the computer on you, beginning in 2007 with the release of the world-changing iPhone. The Vision Pro is the consummation of this second step. Step 3, the third and final step, will be to put the technology inside you. It began this year with the announcement of the first human implanted by the government funded NeuraLink and Elon Musk. The Apple Vision Pro is a great way to celebrate Step 3!

The Apple Vision Pro Is a Dystopian Device for a Dystopian World

FROM CNET: A dad stands awkwardly in the kitchen. He’s using the Vision Pro headset to check his email when his daughter — dressed to play soccer complete with goalie gloves — runs out. She rolls a ball to her dad who, still wearing the headset, sort of distractedly kicks the ball back to her. As a dad who’s spent a depressing amount of time trying to get rid of their kids so I could spend more time glued to an Apple device, it was relatable. It also felt icky.

But it wasn’t designed to feel icky. It was supposed to be heartwarming. Designed to dispel concerns about the Vision Pro and virtual reality headsets in general. Look, it says, the dream is possible! You can still live life and interact with your family while wearing a gigantic, expensive headset on your face! You won’t become a hollowed-out shell of a human! The Vision Pro won’t suck you into a virtual reality hellscape devoid of human interaction!

The Vision Pro isn’t an adequately priced smartphone. It isn’t an iPad Mini. In its press release, Apple seemed determined to avoid the word “headset,” instead referring to it constantly as a “spatial computer.” Either way, this isn’t a fun, disposable device, it’s a wildly expensive MacBook that costs tens of thousands of dollars. Or a $17,000 gold Apple Watch, like the one Kanye West used to wear.

Because of this, the Vision Pro almost certainly hasn’t been designed to change the world the way the iPhone was. At this price it simply can’t. It’ll be a device for well-paid creatives at best, a status symbol for the mega-rich at worst.

Expectations — our expectations — are part of the problem. We’re on our screens, possibly ignoring our children like morons waiting for the next big thing. What piece of consumer tech will transform our lives like the smartphone did? There’s a large part of us that expects Apple to do this, since the iPhone was the catalyst that helped define how we currently interact with the world. But it’s fairly clear virtual reality or augmented reality will not be that thing. The Vision Pro most certainly will not be that thing.

No, the Vision Pro is just another device that some people will buy and others won’t. And in a weird way, that’s OK. As long as you don’t linger on it for too long. Which I won’t. READ MORE

The woman says, “to activate the Home screen, just reach up with your right hand and press the digital crown“. Really, Apple? Come on, man.

General Council of Brotherhoods and Guilds In Spain Commissions Painting Of ‘Gay Jesus’ For Holy Week 2024 That’s Actually A Picture Of Antichrist

Published

on

SHARE NOW THE END BEGINS:

A shocking portrait of an obviously gay ‘Jesus’ has been released for Easter Holy Week 2024 in Spain, but the image actually shows you Antichrist.

No actual images of Jesus of Nazareth exist, but if they did, you can know for sure from the biblical description of Jesus what at least some of His attributes would look like. For example, the Bible says Jesus is a Jew, so He would have dark, full hair, olive skin, and a dark, full beard. Jesus was a carpenter, so He worked with His hands, He would have been physically strong. Solomon says “His legs are as pillars of marble” so that gives you some idea. One thing’s for sure, Jesus wasn’t queer, He didn’t look queer, and He didn’t act queer. But the Antichrist? That’s a different story.

My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand. His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven. His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.” Song of Solomon 5:10-12 (KJB) 

When you look at the face of the person in the painting, you see right away there is nothing Jewish about him. He looks effeminate with smarmy evil at the same time, like a drug dealer, and sporting the Roman Catholic ‘split hoof’ beard you see in many of the paintings done during the Dark Ages when the papal powers ruled Europe. Nothing about this image, on any level, shows you Jesus Christ of the Bible. But it is perfectly in line with Pope Francis and his current bid to create an affirming Catholic Church. When the Antichrist finally comes on the scene after the Rapture, he will have great appeal to the entire 2SLLBGTQIA++ alphabet, he will be the “king over all the children of pride” as Job 41 shows you.

This ‘gay Jesus’ created for Holy Week 2024 in Spain has much more in common with Antichrist

FROM QUEERTY: Easter is coming up at the end of March. The Christian holiday is a particularly big thing in Spain and many regions hold their own special festivals. This includes Seville. The city’s General Council of Brotherhoods and Guilds announced last September it had chosen local, respected artist Salustiano Garcia (b.1965) to design a poster for Holy Week 2024. That poster was unveiled this week… and it’s divided opinion online.

Some have expressed love for the image. The city’s Council of Brotherhoods praised the work. It says it depicts “the radiant side of Holy Week.”

That’s not what others are seeing. IPSE, an ultra-conservative Catholic group said, “It’s absolutely shameful and an aberration.” It went on to say the depiction of Christ is “camp” and “effeminate.”

Javier Navarro, of the far-right Vox political party, claimed the poster was designed purposefully “to provoke.”

semana-santa-2024-holy-week-spain-depicts-gay-jesus-antichrist-end-times-roman-catholic-full

HOW CONFUSED AND DISAPPOINTED WOULD YOU BE TO GET TO HEAVEN AND BE TOLD THIS WAS JESUS?

The artist disagrees. He told Spanish newspaper ABC the image was based on his own son, Horacio. Garcia described it as “gentle, elegant and beautiful”. He said he created it with “deep respect” even if, “the representation of the sacred image is very far from my style.”

“To see sexuality in my image of Christ, you must be mad,” he said. He added that painters and sculptors have depicted Christ in a similar fashion over hundreds of years.

Others agreed with him and pointed to similar depictions. Many condemned the implicit homophobia behind some of the criticism. READ MORE
