Is Anything Real?

The world is real, right? But how do you know? It’s not rocket science, it’s a question about whether rocket scientists even exist in the first place.

Immortality Within Reach

Theoretical physicist Michio Kaku tells us that science’s Connectome Project will soon have the technology to map the pathway of the entire human brain, paving the way for genetic and digital immortality. “It will map all your memories, quirks, personalities, everything digitized,” says Kaku. “And, it will put it on a disc, and for the most part, will put it in libraries.” Imagine visiting a library of the future and conversing with Einstein or Churchill?

The Minds of Men

Here is The Minds of Men, a  major documentary from the Truthstream Media team of Aaron and Melissa Dykes that took them more than three years to complete. It’s an investigation into the experimentation, art, and practice of social engineering and mind control during the Cold War — a mind-bending journey into the past that gives startling insight into the world we are living in today.

The work is comprehensive — nearly four hours long — but quite stunning and chilling. Plan to watch it in hour-long blocks. You can return here to Stormy or bookmark the YouTube video on your own.
