Facebook is funding brain experiments to create a device that reads your mind
NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

In 2017, Facebook announced that it wanted to create a headband that would let people type at a speed of 100 words per minute, just by thinking.

It is a sobering reality when you come to the startling conclusion that Facebook is not a product, no, not by a long shot. To paraphrase that classic line from ‘It’s A Wonderful Life‘, Facebook isn’t selling, they’re buying. What are they purchasing? You. You’re the product field they have purchased for the purpose of cultivating and harvesting.

“Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out. And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.” Acts 1:18,19 (KJV)

The list of stories that we have done warning you about Facebook stretch far and wide on this site. We told you how they launched their own cryptocurrency in a bid to become a global money source. We told about the psychological experiments they have already been caught conducting, and we told how about how Mark Zuckerberg is calling for the creation of the New World Order based around social media.

A Few Surprising Facts About Facebook:

  • How many employees does Facebook currently have:  39,651 as of June 30, 2019, an increase of 31% year-over-year.
  • What is the mission of Facebook:  “Founded in 2004, Facebook’s mission is to give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together. People use Facebook to stay connected with friends and family, to discover what’s going on in the world, and to share and express what matters to them.”
  • Worldwide, there are over 2.41 billion monthly active users (MAU) as of June 2019. This is an 8 percent increase in Facebook MAUs year over year.  This is compared to 2.38 billion MAUs for Q1 2019. (Source: Facebook 7/24/19) Facebook is simply too big to ignore as an on-going part of your digital marketing communications program.  Please note the last item on this list for the total number of people who now use Facebook, Instagram, WhatsApp, or Messenger every day on average.
  • 1.59 billion people on average log onto Facebook daily and are considered daily active users (Facebook DAU) for June 2019.  This represents an 8 percent increase year over year (Source: Facebook as 7/24/19).  Sixty-six percent of Facebook’s audience would be considered DAU versus Monthly Active Users (MAU).  The Implication: A huge and vastly growing number of Facebook users are active and consistent in their visits to the site, making them a promising audience for your marketing efforts.
  • Five new profiles are created every second. The Implication: Your potential audience on Facebook is growing exponentially.
  • Photo uploads total 300 million per day. (Source: Gizmodo) The Implication: Again, this is an indication of engaged users; also, it is an indication that there are a lot of photos, as well as other information, competing for users’ attention, so target your efforts strategically.
  • 4.75 billion pieces of content shared daily as of May 2013 which is a 94 percent increase from August 2012. (Source: Facebook)

If it’s still not clear, let me spell it out for you – the Internet in general and Facebook in particular is the One World System. It is being assembled every hour of every day, and you and I are helping them do it. That’s how close this world is right now to the Antichrist and his Mark of the Beast coming on the scene. Thank God the Rapture of the Church comes first. But man oh man, it’s going to come right down to the wire in an amazing prophetical photo-finish.

Facebook is funding brain experiments to create a device that can access your brain and reads your mind

FROM TECHNOLOGY REVIEW: Now, a little over two years later, the social-media giant is revealing that it has been financing extensive university research on human volunteers. Today, some of that research was described in a scientific paper from the University of California, San Francisco, where researchers have been developing “speech decoders” able to determine what people are trying to say by analyzing their brain signals.

The research is important because it could help show whether a wearable brain-control device is feasible and because it is an early example of a giant tech company being involved in getting hold of data directly from people’s minds.

To some neuro-ethicists, that means we are going to need some rules, and fast, about how brain data is collected, stored, and used. In the report published today in Nature Communications, UCSF researchers led by neuroscientist Edward Chang used sheets of electrodes, called ECoG arrays, that were placed directly on the brains of volunteers.

The scientists were able to listen in in real time as three subjects heard questions read from a list and spoke simple answers. One question was “From 0 to 10, how much pain are you in?” The system was able to detect both the question and the response of 0 to 10 far better than chance. 

How Dangerous Is Facebook?

Facebook is now so central to our lives, that it has great power of influence over us. Worse than that, crimes are being committed with increasing ease through Facebook. How dangerous is the brainchild of Mark Zuckerberg?

Another question asked was which musical instrument they preferred, and the volunteers were able to answer “piano” and “violin.” The volunteers were undergoing brain surgery for epilepsy. Facebook says the research project is ongoing, and that is it now funding UCSF in efforts to try to restore the ability to communicate to a disabled person with a speech impairment. Eventually, Facebook wants to create a wearable headset that lets users control music or interact in virtual reality using their thoughts.

To that end, Facebook has also been funding work on systems that listen in on the brain from outside the skull, using fiber optics or lasers to measure changes in blood flow, similar to an MRI machine. Such blood-flow patterns represent only a small part of what’s going on in the brain, but they could be enough to distinguish between a limited set of commands.

“Being able to recognize even a handful of imagined commands, like ‘home,’ ‘select,’ and ‘delete,’ would provide entirely new ways of interacting with today’s VR systems—and tomorrow’s AR glasses,” Facebook wrote in a blog post.

Facebook has plans to demonstrate a prototype portable system by the end of the year, although the company didn’t say what it would be capable of, or how it would measure the brain.

Privacy Questions

Research on brain-computer interfaces has been speeding up as rich tech companies jump in. On July 16, Neuralink, a brain interface company formed by SpaceX founder Elon Musk, said it hoped to implant electrodes into the brains of paralyzed volunteers within two years.

However, the public has reason to doubt whether tech companies can be trusted with a window into their brains. Last month, for example, Facebook was hit with a record $5 billion fine for deceiving customers about how their personal information gets used.

“To me the brain is the one safe place for freedom of thought, of fantasies, and for dissent,” says Nita Farahany, a professor at Duke University who specializes in neuro-ethics. “We’re getting close to crossing the final frontier of privacy in the absence of any protections whatsoever.”

Neuralink Founder Elon Musk Says First Prototype To Connect Human Brains To Computers With Implantable Microchips Powered By AI Ready In 2020

Facebook emphasizes that all the brain data collected at UCSF will stay at the university, but Facebook employees are able to go there to study it. It’s not known how much money Facebook is providing the university nor how much volunteers know about the company’s role. A university spokesman, Nicholas Weiler, declined to provide a copy of the research contract or the consent forms signed by patients. He said the consent forms list Facebook among several potential sponsors of the research.

While a brain reader could be a convenient way to control devices, it would also mean Facebook would be hearing brain signals that could, in theory, give it much more information, like how people are reacting to posts and updates.

“Brain data is information-rich and privacy sensitive, it’s a reasonable concern,” says Marcello Ienca, a brain-interface researcher at ETH in Zurich. “Privacy policies implemented at Facebook are clearly insufficient.”

Facebook says it will do better with brain data. “We take privacy very seriously,” says Mark Chevillet, who leads the brain reading project at Facebook. READ MORE

Why Elon Musk, Facebook and MIT Are Betting On Mind-Reading Technology

Elon Musk, Facebook, MIT, and a 16-year-old inventor are in the race to read minds with computers. Currently, researchers can detect brainwaves and track electromagnetic pulses within the neurons in our brains. Will this technology completely change humanity and what it means to be human? Big players like Elon Musk and Facebook have teased their entrance into a market that’s expected to reach $1.72B by 2022. New research is pouring out of universities like Massachusetts Institute of Technology and The University of California in San Francisco.

After Years Of Censoring Christians And Conservatives, Is Anyone Surprised That People Are Leaving Facebook In Droves For Sites Like Tik Tok?

Facebook Meta stock lost $200 billion in value in one of the biggest stock drops in history, as users flee for freer sites like Tik Tok.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Bad news, Mark Zuckerberg. People aren’t really interested in Facebook censorship anymore — let alone your metaverse fever dream. Facebook stock lost $200 billion in value in one of the biggest stock drops in history, as users flee for Tik Tok.

Today, hundreds of millions of ex-Facebook users are wildly cheering one of the biggest stock market collapses of a single company in modern times, a $200 billion devaluation of Meta formerly known as Facebook. Why did Facebook Meta stock crash so hard? Because so many users have fled fascist Facebook for places that don’t censor, ban and suspend you for having a differing opinion like Tik Tok and others. If Facebook disappeared from the planet tomorrow, that’d be fine with me. But don’t go getting your hopes up just yet.

“Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.” Ecclesiastes 8:11 (KJB)

Companies like Facebook Meta, Google, Amazon and even Elon Musk are part of the prophesied coming kingdom of Antichrist, and as such, I fully expect to see Facebook showing record profits in a relatively short period of time. But after having our NTEB Facebook page unpublished last month with its hundreds of thousands of followers, I am going to sit back, pour myself of steaming hot cup o’ joe, and enjoy this little victory against the tyrant Zuckerberg.

Facebook crashes after user base started shrinking

FROM FUTURISM: Stock prices for Meta, the company formerly known as Facebook, took a swan dive on Wednesday after the company revealed both a profit decline and, for the first time in its history, a shrinking userbase— leading to a sell off that resulted in a $195 billion stock plunge, Bloomberg reports.

If it holds, the 22 percent dip could be the biggest collapse in market value for a US company in stock market history. A look under the hood shows that the company is dealing with several problems that have culminated into a perfect storm of dwindling profits.

For one, Facebook has yet again failed to grow its daily or monthly active user bases as it faces stiff competition from TikTok and many other upstarts. The company’s advertising growth also slowed as changes to Apple’s iOS made targeted advertising more difficult. There’s also the case of the company’s moonshot goal of creating a workable metaverse. Meta’s AR and VR unit Reality Labs posted a more than $10 billion loss in its first ever financial report, according to CNN. The numbers don’t bode well for its future viability.

“Investors will look at these numbers closely as a first indicator of how far off the Metaverse is from being a profitable reality,” Tom Johnson, global chief digital officer at media agency Mindshare Worldwide, told the broadcaster.

Zuckerberg’s metaverse was always going to be a bit of a long shot. If the recent stock crash is any indication, convincing large swaths of the population to remain on Facebook and purchase a cumbersome VR headset to do depressing metaverse activities is going to be a near impossible task.

The Metaverse Will Be A Full-Time Tracking And Surveillance Platform That Records Your Eye Movements, Facial Expressions And Biometric Data

The Metaverse is trending as Meta Platforms Inc. wants to monitor people’s facial expressions, eye movements, and unique biometric data.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

The Metaverse is trending as Meta Platforms Inc. wants to monitor people’s facial expressions, eye movements, and body poses as well as create “virtual stores” that sell ad-sponsored digital goods in an effort to monetize the metaverse, dozens of recently filed patents suggest.

If you thought that the internet and mindless social media was a digital prison, you ain’t seen nothing yet, what’s coming will make what you see now look about as harmless as a nursery rhyme by comparison. Meta Platform Inc. has been patenting scary digital applications and hardware like crazy, including something called the ‘robot eye’ which will function as a digital version of the all-seeing-eye of Horus.

“Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.” 2 Corinthians 2:11 (KJB)

Remember that Eagles song from the 1970’s called ‘Hotel California’? The lyrics were something along the lines of “Relax, ‘ said the night man, ‘We are programmed to receive. You can check-out any time you like, But you can never leave!” That’s the Metaverse, and that’s no joke. If you are a Bible believing Christian, then resolve within yourself now to have nothing to do with the Metaverse, augmented reality and virtual reality. Nothing, just stay away from it. all of it.

Meta wants to track people’s facial expressions in metaverse

FROM THE NY POST: The company that began as Facebook and which has recently rebranded itself as Meta filed hundreds of patents recently with the US Patent and Trademark Office. These filings shed light on the company’s plans for the internet’s new frontier. The patents, which were first reported by the Financial Times, indicate that Meta wants to use biometric data in order to create a more realistic digital avatar using virtual reality or augmented reality.

Meta also plans to collect data on users so that it could tailor specific ad content while they immerse themselves in the metaverse, the patent filings suggest. One patent filing shows a sketch of a “wearable magnetic sensor system” that the user places around their torso for “body pose tracking.”

Another patent can detect a user’s facial expressions through a headset. The system would then compute the expressions and “adapt media content” based on its findings. The company is essentially following the same business model that translated into tens of billions of dollars in profit through its social network.

Meta also filed a patent for a headset that is equipped with cameras and sensors that ensure the user sees brighter graphics depending on where they’re looking. The firm is also said to be developing an “avatar personalization engine” that can create three-dimensional avatars based on a user’s photos.

“For us, the business model in the metaverse is commerce-led,” Nick Clegg, Meta’s head of global affairs, told FT. “Clearly ads play a part in that.”

Some of the patents appear to have originated in a science fiction movie. In December, Meta was granted a patent for the “mechanical eyeball 100,” which is said to be a “robotic eye designed to resemble a [human] eye.”

The eye is designed to “mate” with an animatronic robot head in an effort to make the eye “appear authentic to an observer,” according to Insider, which first reported the patent filing.

Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said his company plans to invest $10 billion per year over the next decade to develop metaverse technology. The race to metaverse supremacy has set up a clash of tech titans as Apple and Microsoft have also indicated they plan to spend considerable sums of money to grab a share of the market.

Meta’s push to collect more data could trigger a backlash, particularly in light of claims that the company disregarded its own engineers’ advice and bombarded Facebook and Instagram users with targeted content that was known to be harmful. Shares of Meta rose by more than 1.2% in the first hour of trading on Wall Street on Wednesday. READ MORE

Facebook Pulls Plug On Now The End Begins Page In Operation Since 2010 For Telling You The Truth About The COVID Vaccine And Digital Passport

Facebook has silenced Now The End Begins by pulling the plug on our page, after George Soros fact checkers banned our content for truth telling.

NOW THE END BEGINS SHARE:

Facebook uses a group funded by George Soros to conduct ‘fact checking’ operations on content posted to their site, and anything that goes against their fascist dictates is removed and the poster put in jail. Now they have silenced NTEB.

In 2010 I wrote “For generations the Bible has warned of the coming End of Days, and you will live to see it. The frightening events in the world financial markets foretells the coming undoing of America by her own elected officials. America, a nation raised up by the Hand of God to spread the Gospel and be a beacon of Freedom for people around the world is about to be forever silenced by those sworn to protect her. YOU are living in the time of The End.” Thus read the original ‘about’ section of the NTEB Facebook page, a page with hundreds of thousands of readers that has now been silenced by the George Soros funded ‘fact checkers’. NTEB is no longer allowed a voice on Facebook, but our voice has never been more powerful.

“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.” Revelation 2:10 (KJB)

My own personal Facebook jail term, which began at the start of December, will not finish until January 5th, 2022, and it has rendered me unable to do anything on Facebook but use Messenger. Mark Zuckerberg, who ironically is a Jew, has much more in common with Adolf Hitler and the Nazis then he has with anything connected to regathered Israel. Zuckerberg hates free speech, hates free thought, and lives for only one thing – to control what you are allowed to do. To that end, Zuckerberg spent hundreds of millions of dollars to sway the 2020 election results in 49 out of the 40 united states. That’s how the elites do election fraud, that’s how they got Biden elected.

“We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me.” ― George Orwell, 1984

Mark Zuckerberg Used Wealth To Sway Election

A former federal election official called the $400 million-plus that Mark Zuckerberg spent to help finance local elections a “carefully orchestrated attempt” to influence the 2020 vote — and recommended that all states ban private funding of election offices. Hans von Spakovsky, a former Federal Election Commission member, said the billionaire Facebook founder’s donations to a pair of nonprofits that doled out the cash to nearly 2,500 counties in 49 states “violated fundamental principles of equal treatment of voters since it may have led to unequal opportunities to vote in different areas of a state.”

George Soros Funds Facebook ‘Fact Checking’

The International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN) drafted a code of five principles for news websites to accept, and Facebook yesterday announced it will work with “third-party fact checking organizations” that are signatories to the code of principles. Facebook says that if the “fact checking organizations” determine that a certain story as fake, it will get flagged as disputed and, according to the Facebook announcement, “there will be a link to the corresponding article explaining why. Stories that have been disputed may also appear lower in News Feed.”

IFCN is hosted by the Poynter Institute for Media Studies. A cursory search of the Poynter Institute website finds that Poynter’s IFCN is openly funded by Soros’ Open Society Foundations as well as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Google, and the National Endowment for Democracy.

So after over a decade on Facebook, and our unceremonious removal from their fascist platform, the fight continues unabated, and we invite you to join us. Come join the NTEB global family of Bible believers, and help us to send out King James Bibles around the world, for free, to anyone who needs one and can’t afford it. Help us to put up more Gospel Witness Billboards to warn lost sinners that Hell is real. Help us, for the fields are ‘white unto harvest’, the laborers are few, and the time is almost gone. We need you.. and the lost need you even more.

The war is REAL, the battle HOT and the time is SHORTto the FIGHT!!!
