Brian Greene on Lex Fridman’s podcast, Part 1☄️

‘Life is really what you make of it,’ says Brian Greene, world renownedphysicist and New York Times bestselling author. Brian says we’re all in a position of only being aware of our own conscience being though we can only judge that others are conscience by their behavior. There is something special about us. Fish and dogs aren’t able to come up with the ideas that we are. How can it be that a particle can create consciousness? Brian says.

In my opinion, it’s God. I believe in a supreme intelligence—Holy Father (God). His size spans the entire earth and he is too big to make out visually. I’m not sure how big he is, but he’s huge! His son, Jesus, is a reflection of his love.❤️‍🩹 All loving and kind. God is full of power amd light.✨ He’s the creator of the heavens and earth! Brian Greene says that he doesn’t believe there is no God. He has said he just doesn’t know.

By the way, he keeps the largest Christmas trees in his home at Christmastime!🎄 That’s another detail he’s shared. His views are accurate. We are beings just passing through; the whole universe will be destroyed due to entropy at some point. We don’t know when that will be (probably much further down the road). But in the meantime we are to make the best of life, enjoy it, and be kind to all of humankind.❤️‍🔥🙏⚛️✨🌤

Elon Musk on Lex Fridman’s podcast. Wowie wow!🔥

Elon Musk (one of my favorite innovators) was on the Lex Fridman podcast (a world renowned and famous podcast show). He gets A LOT of listeners! I would LOVE to be on his show!

Apparently Elon thinks that one day AI (artificial intelligence) will be just as ‘smart’ as us and even difficult to discern. What I mean is one day it will be hard to tell whether you are dealing with AI or a human being.

AI safety is the goal. Right now they are making driverless cars completely driven by a computer. Elon argues that driverless cars are safer. For example, one day you may get a pizza delivered by a driverless JET’s pizza driver!

AI will be responsible for helping relieve Alzheimer’s. Or a ‘chip’ will be I should say. There will be a chip one day that will help those with Alzheimer’s remember their birthday, names of their loved ones, and other important things, etc.

‘We’ve got a monkey brain with a computer stuck in it,’ Elon says. Elon also says it should be that the ‘smart thing controls the dumb thing.’lol But the dumb thing, being us, controls the smart thing (AI).🤣😂

Neuralink (Elon’s company) will solve a lot of critical damage that has been done to the brain or spinal cord due to disease or accidents. He will solve brain related diseases even simple memory loss. At some point we may all experience it. His company has just been launched in 2016. That is not long ago!

It will improve quality of life! They will implant ’brain machine interfaces’ that will be embedded ’threads into the brain!’ It will cure TBIs and motor function issue due to spinal cord injury! Why couldn’t he have come out with this 20 years ago? I’ve had a spinal cord injury since 1994!

If you want to watch this AMAZING interview, I am still mind blown, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=smK9dgdTl40 I hope you enjoy it and learn a lot like I did!

Some things you may want to know, Part 4!

On average, EVERY single star🌟 has a planet🪐 going around it. One fifth of them have an “earth”🌍 sized planet going around it. How many galaxies✨ are there? There are about a hundred billion galaxies with a hundred billion STARS in EACH one! Do you really think we are alone? In this lifetime, we have already picked up signals.🛸

If there are alien life forms (I believe there are), there are three types. I will explain. But of course first we would want to decipher their language. So, a type one civilization is capable of harnessing planetary🪐 power. They would manage or modify the weather: earthquakes, hurricanes💨, etc. Type 2 would be stellar⭐️. They would play with stars and use the energy out put of a star like in Star Trek! Type three would be galactic: they would roam the galactic space lanes like in Star Wars!☄️

There are planets, stars, and galaxies (and we are made of the same elements that stars are🌠), and that’s it. Most of the universe is made up of dark energy. It’s the energy of ‘nothing.’ It’s a result of the “Big Bang” or Big event when God said, “Let there be light💫.” There was no “bang” because there were no air molecules; thus, there was no noise at that time. Quantum physicists don’t believe the “big event” happened only once. They believe in the multi-verse theory and that we are living in a cosmic bubble with multiple universes as a result of multiple “let there be lights💫.”

Our universe had a beginning, but there are other bubble universes out there that are expanding beyond our three dimensional comprehension. It is hyper space; it is eleven dimensional hyper space. String theorists tell us. The Big “event” is nothing but the collision of universes, according to Michio Kaku (famous world renowned physicist). String theory teaches that inside the “nucleus,” which we once thought was the tiniest particle, is a tiny heart string♥️. God created these tiny heart strings that vibrate and EVERYTHING is made up of this “heart” string. God created a symphony🎶!

Einstein didn’t believe in a personal God; he believe in a God defined as a “God of Spinoza.” God as a singular self-subsistent substance, with both matter and thought being attributes of such. He believed that God was orderly and that God is organized and not random. On a single sheet of paper we can write all the known Laws of the universe. He believed God is beautiful. We can write down Einstein’s equation (one inch long) and string theory is a lot longer, but you can write it all on one piece of paper. The PURPOSE of science✳️ is to determine how the heavens go: the purpose of religion is to figure out how to go to heaven, says Michio!

By the way, I believe in a personal God. The one who parted the Red Sea. I believe in Jesus Christ. His son. I believe in the Holy Trinity. At the same time, I believe that God is orderly, organized, beautiful and amazing. In a way, I believe Holy Father is like a “God of Spinoza.” I also believe that God is all loving and that he loves unconditionally. I don’t focus on condemnation. I believe God is omnipresent (he can be everywhere all at once!).

I believe he is awesome! I believe that “mind can’t contain” as the bible says, “what the Lord has prepared.” I also believe that if there are aliens it doesn’t mean God loves us any less. My God is big enough to love me as if I’m the only one here! You know what I mean? God’s love is not limited by how massive his universe(s) are. We are intelligent beings. God created us. We are his children. We are made to rule over creatures of the land and sea. We are brought to consciousness and may feel like we have free will.

I believe we do to some degree. Some physicists would also argue that everything is in cosmic order and that “free will” is more of an illusion. I believe that God is the greatest Chess player. He knows every way that something can go. He has a plan for even when we fail. That is the way that the famous pastor, Greg Boyd, explained it.

Robots are getting smarter and smarter. They are about as smart as a cockroach. In the coming years, they may become as smart as a cat or a dog. If they ever become as smart as monkeys they may become dangerous. Aliens from out in space can be genetically and cybernetically advanced, according to Micho Kaku! And…the “chip,” folks…will be made for Alzheimer’s patients. It will NOT be made for us. I mean, it WON’T be in the Covid 19 vaccine! Lol🤣

To learn more about these topics, I recommend you watch this video. My notes are based off this podcast I watched with Lex Fridman and Michio Kaku (world renowned physicist, professor, and author!). Here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kD5yc1LQrpQ

Not Without God: A Story of Survival and what it’s about!

I wrote a book about a catastrophic accident I was in at sixteen years old that left me paralyzed. While trying to cross the street on my way to school, I was hit by a car. I had to be taken via ambulance to the local hospital, Botsford, but the hospital didn’t have the technology or scope to save me. So they sent me to a level one trauma hospital. I was flown via helicopter to Mott Children’s Hospital via Survival Life Flight at the University of Michigan.

That was where I went into 12 hours of emergency surgery. The doctors were able to save my life. The Lord was working through them. I had severe injuries. My spine had shifted and broke at the thoracic level. I had a fracture in my C1 vertebrae and had to wear a neck brace while in the hospital. I had internal bleeding, and my ribs were broken. My tibias and fibias were both shattered. I had to learn how to walk through an extensive amount of physical therapy, thousands of hours.

It’s a huge miracle I’m alive let alone able to walk. I use AFOs (an ankle to foot orthosis) and forearm crutches. Although I’m not walking as well as I would like, I am grateful for how far I’ve come. Some medical professionals predicted I’d never walk at all. The nurses in the hospital were happy for me because they thought I wanted to go home soon. I had to stay at the hospital for a little over three months. They made sure to send me home just before my birthday, and my nurses would come in and say, “Aren’t you happy to be going home?”

What they didn’t know is I was terrified. I didn’t want to go back into the real world. I knew it would be difficult for my family to take care of me. I didn’t know how best friends would receive me. I was the one who used to drive and pick them up. I was active before the accident. I was even on the Multicultural & Multiracial Diversity council at school that year. The teachers and administrators would always be pleased with my wise comments.

***

There have been many blessings since the book has come out. My book proposal was accepted by Morgan James Publishing in New York, New York. I got to meet my publishers at Author 101 University in Las Vegas, and then I went to Author 101 in Las Vegas. I’ve had book signings and even got to have one at a local Barnes & Nobles. I got to Speak at Harvard University about my book to a group of 59 other entrepreneurs and the whole thing was live streamed!

I’ve gotten to meet celebrities at an event, “Living Legends of Entrepreneurial Marketing,” at Carnegie Hall. It’s been an amazing experience. Now I’m working on my second, “Not Without God: Hope In the Storm.” It will be a narrative as well but a teaching book also. This will be where people can write in various chapters that offer journaling sections. I ask questions like, “When was the last time God was really there for you, for example?” I do that so people can write and reflect upon their own lives. I’d like it to be a self help guide. But writing is optional.

I’m looking forward to the blessings that will come from my second book and most of all, it will be nice to reach out to more people. Tomorrow I will be featured on ESPN’s “Solutions from the Huddle” and interviewed on a podcast show. I’ll talk about my book, experiences, business, and life. I’m looking forward to it, and I hope that I am able to touch more lives and help more people!

‘Keeping Up With the Chaldeans’ (Not the Kardashians!) Interview

Check it out, everyone! This is my latest candid interview that I did before the stay-at-home orders (over two months ago) with my generous hosts, Anthony Toma, and Junior Binno. Here is the link to the YouTube show: https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=keeping+up+with+the+chaldeans Please LIKE and subscribe! It is a MUST watch!

In case you don’t know who the Chaldeans are, they’ve been around since B.C. days and have developed a reputation for learning and knowledge of math, writing, and astronomy. Their greatest king was Nebuchadnezzar, the ruler of the Babylonian empire (from 605-562B.C.), and he was also the creator of one of the Seven Wonders of the World: The Hanging Gardens of Babylon.

Babylonia is also referred to as ‘the land of the Chaldeans’ time and time again in the Bible. We originated in southern Mesopotamia, one of the cradles of civilization (along with India, Egypt, and China). I can speak the language, although, I was born in the U.S. I’m second generation.

I talk about my book, Not Without God: A Story of Survival, and recall my accident and other events including a healing work that was performed on my left arm! There is no greater time than now to watch! This should encourage, inspire, and help. I hope you enjoy it!
