How Far Can Rule 41 Go?


“Be a citizen of the world!”

That’s a quote from “Passport to International Profit”, the first book I wrote in the 1970s.

passport

“Be global” was the theme.  Technology was advancing to the point that we could live in one country, bank in a second country, earn in a third with a corporation set up in a fourth country… all directed from an office in a fifth country.  I called it the five point command posture.

Technology made this path of freedom easier and easier… then.

See why this is not the case today.

Since the 1970s, governments, almost everywhere,  have been using technology to systematically strip away global freedoms and tag their citizens with extraterritorial jurisdiction.

Extraterritorial jurisdiction is when a government exercises its authority beyond its normal boundary.

This means that a government’s hold, its control, its force pressed upon you, does not have to stop at any border.

Examples of this beyond-the-border, action has ranged from Russian killings of its citizens living abroad to America’s taxation of expats.

The Chinese government exercises its extraterritorial jurisdiction with forced renditions (aka kidnapping).  They forcibly repatriate people that they consider Chinese nationals — even when some are also citizens of other countries.  The Communist Party is serious. Its assertion is that anyone it regards as a national — no matter where they live, work, or study — is subject to its authority.

The US  claims authority over its citizen’s bank accounts wherever they may be.   The US taxes earnings on its citizens wherever they may work, live or earn.

Then Came Rule 41

In 2016, the US government decided to claim authority over your computer as well.  Rule 41 of the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure, which was proposed by the US Department of Justice, was approved by the US Supreme Court.

This rule allows federal investigators to seek permission from a magistrate judge, in any state, to plant hacking software on a computer that’s… anywhere.

The Justice Department does not even need an elected judge to be this forceful.  Magistrates are not elected judges, but are judges appointed to assist district court judges in the performance of their duties (1).  They are “Justices of the Peace” who administer criminal or civil justice in minor cases, can act as a notary, administer oaths and perform marriages.  In some cases magistrates are not even required to have a law degree.

You can’t hide from US government hacking as US law enforcement has this easy legal path to hack into any computer, anywhere in the world.

This is a Rule… not a Law!

This enormous intrusion into our privacy is not even a law created in Congress.  This is a rule simply proposed by the Department of Justice, which the courts have gone along with.

How can it get worse?

If  Yuval Noah Harari, author of “Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow” is correct, the problem is about to get much, much worse.

Governments don’t want to just control our money and body, they want to take over our will.

Harari says: Governments and corporations will soon know you better than you know yourself.  Belief in the idea of ‘free will’ has become dangerous.

Harari argues that free will isn’t free.  We can make independent choices, but these choices depend biological, social and personal conditions that we do not control. We had nothing to do with our gender, family background, national culture, genes or the family we have.

He asks: Just observe the next thought that pops up in your mind. Where did it come from? Did you freely choose to think it? Obviously not. If you carefully observe your own mind, you come to realise that you have little control of what’s going on there, and you are not choosing freely what to think, what to feel, and what to want.

Harari thinks that the belief in “free will” is dangerous because governments and corporations have learned to manipulate our thoughts.

He believes that governments and big business can hack humans.

He says: It starts with simple things. As you surf the internet, a headline catches your eye: “Immigrant gang rapes local women”. You click on it. At exactly the same moment, your neighbour is surfing the internet too, and a different headline catches her eye: “Trump prepares nuclear strike on Iran”. She clicks on it. Both headlines are fake news stories, generated perhaps by Russian trolls, or by a website keen on increasing traffic to boost its ad revenues. Both you and your neighbour feel that you clicked on these headlines out of your free will. But in fact you have been hacked.

The scary aspect of Harari’s predictions are that governments can tailor their message to the unique weaknesses of each individual brain.   Algorithms can be used to spot and reinforce bias.

In recent years some of the smartest people in the world have worked on hacking the human brain in order to make you click on ads and sell you stuff. Now these methods are being used to sell you politicians and ideologies, too.

The really thought provoking point is that this is just the beginning.

Right now hackers rely on data based on what we buy, where we visit, the words we use on our phones, email and search for online.  Once biometric sensors are improved government hackers will have direct access to our facial expressions, our heart beat, blood pressure and brain activity.

Then they can correlate our physical rhythms with our credit card data and search history.   The hackers will know us and how to direct our thinking, better than ourselves.

His suggestion for combating this horrible intrusion is “come to terms with what humans really are: hackable animals. We need to know ourselves better”.

“Know thyself”.  We have all heard this before, but it’s valuable advice.  Modern technology allows too many people to sell us anything they want – be it a product or a politician.

If we get to know ourselves better and accept our vulnerabilities, we can start to build protection from that.

It is particularly important to get to know our weaknesses. These are the key features that hackers look for when they  hack you.  Algorithms reinforce pre-existing fears, hatreds, biases and cravings.

Hackers cannot create fear or hatred out of nothing. But when they discover what people already fear and hate it is easy to push the relevant emotional buttons and provoke even greater fury.

If we look within and accept that our thoughts and desires are not just ours, we become less attached to them.  When we understood that our desires are not just free choice, we’ll be better able to be flexible in our thinking.

Once we realize that we are a product of a history and surroundings we did not create and can do little about, we become more connected with reality and can see and hear other people better.

Curiosity can bring us back.

Thinking this way can expand curiosity.  When we accept that our thoughts and feelings are not all “us” we can begin to question and see through the attempts at control more clearly. .

Question everything and you’ll start being smarter.  We do not know all the things that governments might do to kill freedom, but if we can stimulate our curiosity we’ll be better positioned to bring our self control back.

Become Smarter

 

Join the top 3 percent of intelligent people in the world.

Become more independent and relaxed by becoming smarter.

A study of 10,000 British people studied the pure relationship between intelligence and happiness stability.

IQ can predict the emotional ups and downs of life.   The research found that the lower the IQ,  the more stress and higher the ups and downs in life satisfaction.  The differences were not due to education, income, or jobs either, but simply IQ.

Delegates at a Super Thinking course relaxing in their secret rose garden.

Free yourself by becoming smarter, healthier, happier… in just weeks… hearing  a relaxation session that takes you into your secret rose garden.

Merri, David and I originally developed this session for our Super Thinking courses and have set it into an online workshop for you.

Listen… just 18 minutes day.  We guarantee your life will be better.

Inflate Your IQ.

When it comes to money… inflation is cheating.

That’s bad for you.

When it comes to intelligence… inflating is smart… fair… good for you and it’s good for the rest of the world.

Monetary inflation is a sneaky government and business trick.

What cost a dollar in 1965 can easily cost $15 now.

They promise you more.

Liars?

They devalue the currency so you get more dollars that buy less.  They can rip off your salary,  your pension…raise insurance, almost everything.

And they make you work harder… longer… for less.

Whittle, whittle, whittle.  Push, push, push.  That’s what monetary inflation does to you.

Fight back… overcome the inflation trick.  Inflate your IQ as you relax.

Gain more than IQ.

Be smarter… more energetic…. healthier… more relaxed.

That’s the way to get ahead!

Create more income opportunity.  Reduce stress.  Improve your health.  Be naturally smarter… use Super Thinking.

You can improve your IQ in just weeks.

You might well ask… How is this possible?

Here’s how the scientists say it is possible.

A Wall Street Journal article entitled “Ways to Inflate Your IQ”(1)  show how you can be smarter and actually add matter to your brainThe article says:

           Many people think of IQ as a genetic trait, like brown eyes or short legs: You’re born with it and you’re stuck with it.

Now, a growing body of research is showing that a person’s IQ can rise—and even fall—over the years.

Scores can change gradually or quickly, after as little as a few weeks of cognitive training, research shows.

British students were given IQ tests and brain scans at ages 12 to 16 and again about four years later.  9% of the students showed a significant change of 15 points or more in IQ scores.

The study published in Nature said that on a scale where 90 to 110 is considered average, one student’s IQ rose 21 points to 128 from 107, lifting the student from the 68th percentile to the 97th compared with others the same age. 

MRIs in this study showed changes in gray matter in areas corresponding to fluctuations in the kid’s skills.

There are practical steps people can take to see longer-term IQ changes.  New tasks stimulate the brain most.  Young adults given just one month of intense training in juggling, found an increase in the corresponding gray matter in the brain as early as seven days after the training began.

Fluctuations in IQ scores over time underscore the brain-boosting benefits of musical training and new experiences throughout a lifetime.

Music lessons are linked to higher IQ throughout life.  Six years’ lessons lifted children’s IQ scores an average 7.5 points.

 Improve the brain through music… without lessons.

Here’s the Super Thinking story…

The educational program Merri and I developed uses a form of brain wave integration that increases IQ.

Super Thinking uses frequency (in music and a number of other ways) to integrate brain waves so the process of absorbing, processing and recalling information is vastly accelerated.  The music creates the three C’s:  Calm, Clarity and Coherence.

This Super Thinking program is not a gimmick or trick… just advanced education.

Certain types of Baroque music are the base, and they make you smarter!

Proof?

At least four best selling books, “Psychic Discoveries Behind the Iron Curtain”,  “Superlearning”, the “Mozart Effect” and “Superlearning 2000″ showed how to learn and think more powerfully based on systems drawn from the Bulgarian educational master, Dr. Georgi Lozanov.

This Baroque music tactic alone is so powerful that Small Business Innovation Research… an official site of the US government granted over $100,000 for the specific purpose they said was: to provide a method to remove barriers which hinder or prevent the employment of blind persons.  An innovative method, the Lozanov Learning System, is proposed to help train blind persons to become computer programmers and operators of automated equipment.

Merri was among just a few who learned this technique directly from Dr. Lozanov the time he visited the USA.

Our Super Thinking workshop enhanced this system with numerous other tactics.

We added slight alterations in nutrition that create a higher IQ.   Altered nutritional tips in Super Thinking can make anyone 25% smarter!

Baroque Music and nutrition are just part of seven, easy to use, learning techniques that make you smarter.

Gain any skill, from computers to athletics to conversational languages…in less time…two-to-five times faster.

Here’s a huge bonus.  Super Thinking also relieves stress.  Super Thinking is fun.

You can use a Super Thinking focus in everything:  health… earning… education… investing.

Super Thinking works on the learner first…the data second.  This system “grows the learner” rather than the information.

If you have 4.5 inches of information flowing through a 4 inch learning pipe, the solution is not to add another inch of information.  The answer is create a six inch IQ pipe!

Share our years of experience.

For nearly 50 years, Merri and I have conducted hundreds of courses and tours for tens of thousands, in dozens of countries (even behind the Iron Curtain).  Our Super Thinking Workshop has been one of the most profound.  Now the workshop is even better online because it condenses Super Thinking so you can increase your IQ, at home… right away.

The workshop shows how these mind expanding tactics can be applied to starting and running a business for extra income, to forex trading and investing.  Athletes of all types… golfing being one common sport benefit.  Our Super Thinking plan goes far beyond Lozanov and allows you to rapidly get smarter in every part of your life.

For example, real estate broker, Suzy Kurinsky took the workshop to help her learn Spanish.

She wrote: “You are the BEST!!! Your Seminar was fantastic! I am so excited. I had procrastinated fulfilling my continuing education for my Broker’s License and then just before my surgeries, I realized by expiration date isn’t Nov. 12th – it is Sept 12th. Prior to taking your course I had only completed 3 units of the required 45 units. I thought I would take your course and then complete my remaining 42 units over the next 2 weeks. However, I took one class exam on Saturday night, August 27th. I didn’t even take the cellophane off the required Course manuals until after I saw the two of you today less than 5 hours ago! I used your techniques and completed 39 units of continuing education today. I have now completed all 45 units. All of my test scores were in the 90.6-96% range.  My course exam information is listed below. I just wanted to let you know how valuable your course was to me. Thanks again!”

Super thinking can improve almost anything you do… faster, better, more fun and with less stress.

Another attendee to the Super Thinking Workshop sent this note.

 Thank you for the wonderful workshop on Super Learning + Spanish!  I really enjoyed the workshop and getting to know you.   I can see several ways to apply what I learned in the classes I teach.

Since I returned home, I have purchased some of the CDs of Baroque music and thought about which specific pieces will work best in different parts of my classes.  I am also reading Perfect Health by Deepak Chopra.  I found your discussion of this book to be very helpful in showing how to balance one’s life.  I have adjusted my daily schedule, and I can already notice a difference in my productivity.

Super Thinking can help improve your health. Super Thinking can make you rich and add richness to your life.

However the time, travel expense and workshop cost (delegates have paid up to $999) have prohibited many from getting this benefit.

That’s why we have created the workshop in electronic form.  Get Super Thinking online for less than fifty bucks.

Relax in the Secret Rose Garden.

The workshop is divided into two parts.  Part one is the application… the sessions that tell you exactly what to do, what music to use and even includes two recorded sessions based around a secret rose garden that you can use.  We have kept this portion short and simple so you can easily start immediately.

Part two is a longer portion on theory.

Part one is enough.

Super Thinking is like jogging… giving results if you simply do it!

You do not have to know why Super Thinking works to increase your IQ.   But Part Two explains why you are getting the good results from Part One, if you want to know.

You might ask…”Will it work for me”?

The Super Thinking Workshop will help increase your IQ.

Our guarantee.

I guarantee it.  Order the Super Thinking Workshop.  Use it for two months.  If you are not totally satisfied… in any way, during that time, simply let me know and I’ll send a full refund… immediately… no questions asked.

Another Super Thinking workshop attendee wrote: Listening to the two of you during our time together has suddenly got me to thinking, and although some of the ideas still seem foreign to me,  I am at a point in my life now where I can say, “anything is possible”.   I am now willing to embrace and allow myself to experience the world of possibility and let it take me in directions I may have in the past resisted.  I really don’t know where all this is going to lead me but I am now willing to explore, develop and grow.   Thank you again for a wonderful four days!!

Inflation is a cheat… a crime when it comes to money.  Inflating your IQ to beat inflation is simple good sense.  Learn Super Thinking now with no risk.  Begin to increase your intelligence today.
