With every new AI surveillance technology that is adopted and deployed without any regard for privacy, Fourth Amendment rights, and due process, the rights of the citizenry are being marginalized, undermined, and eviscerated. We are now witnessing the rise of digital authoritarianism. Beyond the metaverse and the so-called Eighth Sphere extinction, we need to understand the world governments have already made the decision that Artificial Intelligence will be utilized in a new digital utility called Web 3. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with surveillance expert, Andrew Sternke about WEB 3 – BEWARE THE 8TH SPHERE DIGITAL UTILITY.





I was alerted to a story from a listener that told me that it fit in with what I was saying about the surveillance state going out of control.

The powers that be want us to speed up our relationship with machines so that they can collect more data on us and use it to their advantage.

Nothing that was once private is protected.

We have not even begun to register the fallout from the tsunami bearing down upon us in the form of AI (artificial intelligence) surveillance, and yet it is already re-orienting our world into one in which freedom is almost unrecognizable.

Everything that was once private is now up for grabs to the right buyer.

Governments and corporations alike have heedlessly adopted AI surveillance technologies without any care or concern for their long-term impact on the rights of the citizenry.

Buckle up Dorothy because Kansas is going bye bye.

Indeed, with every new AI surveillance technology that is adopted and deployed without any regard for privacy, Fourth Amendment rights and due process, the rights of the citizenry are being marginalized, undermined and eviscerated.

We are now witnessing the rise of digital authoritarianism.

Amazon has acquired the vacuum cleaner maker iRobot for $1.7 billion, scooping up another company to add to its collection of smart home appliances amid broader concerns from privacy advocates about the tech giant’s power and ability to gain deeper insights into consumers’ lives.

iRobot sells its products worldwide and is most famous for the circular-shaped Roomba vacuum, which would join voice assistant Alexa, the Astro robot, Ring security cameras and others in the list of smart home features Amazon offers.

The acquisition also adds to Amazon’s vast store of consumer data — leading tech experts to raise the alarm that the tech giant could use this business deal to vacuum up personal information from insider users’ homes.

It is just another way a major computer conglomerate finds a way to collect data on you and spy on everything you do.

Advanced Roomba vacuums have internal mapping technology that could benefit Amazon. The technology allows the devices to learn the floor plan of a user’s home. Devices can remember up to 10 floor plans “so users can carry their robot to another floor or a separate home, where the robot will recognize its location and clean as instructed,

Now they can actually know the layout of your home and products that are in your home to target you for further purchases for really anything — any consumer goods,

Amazon’s Alexa can already warm users’ homes, control the lights, keep track of schedules and add vacuuming to its list.

Roombas have already collected on users: such as Billing information Mailing address Social media accounts, if you signed up through one

Any data from other devices you’ve connected to, including your smartphone.

This is where we have to ask — is convenience the thing that is going to do us in? Too lazy to vacuum? You can give up your privacy to get a robot vacuum cleaner and all your cares and troubles will go away.,

How can this not be seen as intrusive?

It is believed that behind the scenes of external events there are organizations who work tirelessly to achieve certain objectives, kept hidden from the mass of humanity. One of their most guarded secrets is known in occult circles as the Eighth Sphere. It is one of the the most challenging and difficult subject to comprehend but without at least some idea of its relationship to the aims of certain forces of evolution.

When we dig deep into the occult we can see in our minds eye exactly what the future beast system will have at its’s disposal and of course the digital era has been  revealed  with godlike mathematics, secret numbers and alphabets.

The all-seeing eye of the beast looks beyond your biometrics and looks directly into the bone, marrow and sinews of the human body.

From there the soul is easily harvested.

We have discussed the alchemical description of this as the advent of the eighth sphere, something that was described by religious scholar Rudolf Steiner at the turn of the 20th century.

The eighth sphere is  a metaphor for the counterfeit life experience. I would say that Steiner saw a future where we would choose to be sucked into the Eighth Sphere — the A.I. Metaverse.

Rudolf Steiner explains that the ultimate goal of the adversarial powers is to draw as much of humanity into the Eighth Sphere as is possible. If you imagine a future where people’s minds are permanently connected to the internet, which by then will likely be a quantum internet controlling all aspects of life both real and virtual; the virtual made up from countless worlds indistinguishable from physical reality, then you will have some idea of how consciousness will be controlled, harvested and bottled up like Data — just like DNA is being cataloged for the new final solution whatever it will be.

Steiner gave 10 lectures in 1917 and in one of them he described the future and how the eighth sphere would influence mankind.

“In truth, therefore, our Earth —the Fourth Sphere — is simply not what it appears outwardly to be. Were it really to consist of atoms, all these atoms would still be impregnated by formations belonging to the Eighth Sphere — which are perceptible only to visionary clairvoyance. These formations are present everywhere; so too is the specter-like content of the Eighth Sphere which can therefore be perceived just as actual specters are perceived.

All earthly being and existence are involved here. Lucifer and Ahriman strive unceasingly to draw from the Earth’s substances whatever they can snatch, in order to form their Eighth Sphere which then, when it is sufficiently advanced, will be detached from the Earth and go its own way in the Cosmos together with Lucifer and Ahriman.”.

If the Eighth Sphere is the metaverse, then I contend that Steiner saw it as the domain of Lucifer and the Antichrist.

Within spiritual science, Rudolf Steiner used the names Lucifer and Ahriman to designate two opposing forces towards mankind.

Rudolf Steiner and his adherents explain how the workings of Lucifer and Ahriman are connected with the forces of man-made electricity and magnetism, the polarities that information processing technologies are based upon.

Anti-spiritual forces are precursors to anti-life actions and many see Transhumanism as the bridge to extinction like a thousand paper cuts as we are beguiled to trade our bodies for avatars and our souls for bytes in a technological Eden.

Imagine a future time when the internet is a quantum internet and much of our technology uses quantum-based processors. As strange as it may sound, the processing will not be taking place within the physical hardware but, rather, the physical hardware will create a condition where the processors can access and utilize the parallel, non-physical dimension of our reality system known as the Eighth Sphere.

What we are projecting a future with interchangeable hyper reality but arguably, the Mark of the Beast in the initiation into the pit of the metaverse and eventually the full surrender to the portal to the other side.

Beyond the metaverse and the so called eight sphere extinction — we need to understand the world governments have already made the decision that Artificial intelligence will be utilized in a new digital Utility called Web 3.

Unless you work in tech you’ve probably never heard the term “Web 3.0” before (also written as “web3”).

To understand web3, a quick history lesson is in order: When the internet was first made available it was “read-only”, in other words, it made information available to the public but in static format; regular people did not have the know-how to publish new content, as this required technical expertise and deep knowledge of code. This initial form of the internet, we will call “web1”.

The next iteration of the internet, which we experience today, allows regular users to both read content and publish it. With “web2”, the internet became interactive, paving the way for the creation of social networks, allowing users to connect and create.

The problem with web2 is that information is controlled by central authorities that collect and productize it. In exchange for the ability to create, we’ve allowed large corporations to establish ownership over our personal data.

That brings us to “web3” which seeks to solve the problems created by web2 while also providing the infrastructure for new, disruptive technologies.

Web3 infrastructure leads to new use cases for the internet. In other words, there will be new ways for people to engage with one another, earn money online and entertain themselves. This includes the creation and selling of “NFTs”, new ways to conduct commerce, decentralized communities, gaming, and yes, the “metaverse”.

A quick word is needed about NFTs. NFT stands for “Non-fungible token” (i.e., something that’s one-of-a-kind); they are basically digital collectibles that are stamped onto the blockchain. They can also represent real-world items (this is important). The introduction of NFTs has resulted in jpegs of apes being worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.

People have even begun to mint real-life animals as tradable NFTs and yes some of them have been sheep –In short, NFTs will form the basis for ownership in the metaverse.

The final “layer” of web3 will be the access layers, which are the means by which participants will access the system. Right now, we experience the internet through applications and websites. With web3, users will access the internet using these same means together with decentralized apps and crypto wallets.”

With web3 comes a strange dichotomy between freedom and enslavement. On the one hand, it could lead to a free internet, ungoverned by authorities, and uncensorable, where everyone has the ability to transact freely, without the need for third parties.

On the other hand, many people that promote web3 as being an uncensorable utopia are the same people promoting “programmable” currencies and the “metaverse” – two concepts utterly adverse to the notion of a free society.

After all, for a currency to be “programmable”, somebody must be doing the programming. This brings us back to the promotion of CBDCs (Central Bank Digital Currencies),

Like most things in life, the effect that web3 will have on society will depend on how we use it.  It appears to be the new digital 00utility used by the elites to construct a digital dictatorship.

The World Economic Forum is now advocating for the merger of human and artificial intelligence systems to censor “hate speech” and “misinformation” online before it is even allowed to be posted.

A report published to the official WEF website ominously warns about the peril of “the dark world of online harms.”

They want to merge the ‘best’ aspects of human censorship and AI machine learning algorithms to ensure that people’s feelings don’t get hurt and counter-regime opinions are blacklisted.

“By uniquely combining the power of innovative technology, off-platform intelligence collection and the prowess of subject-matter experts who understand how threat actors operate, scaled detection of online abuse can reach near-perfect precision,” states the article.

After engaging in a whole host of mumbo jumbo, the article concludes by proposing “a new framework: rather than relying on AI to detect at scale and humans to review edge cases, an intelligence-based approach is crucial.”

“By bringing human-curated, multi-language, off-platform intelligence into learning sets, AI will then be able to detect nuanced, novel abuses at scale, before they reach mainstream platforms. Supplementing this smarter automated detection with human expertise to review edge cases and identify false positives and negatives and then feeding those findings back into training sets will allow us to create AI with human intelligence baked in,” the article rambles.

In other words, your free speech will probably get censored before you’re even able to post it on social media sites. Some are calling it “preemptive censorship.”

Or as the WEF puts it, “Trust and safety teams can stop threats rising online before they reach users.”

No doubt that a central part of such “misinformation” will be strident denunciation of the WEF itself, given that the organization is notorious for blocking its critics on Twitter.

Many would ask why the World Economic Forum, amidst a cost of living crisis, upcoming energy rationing and a global recession, is concerning itself with any of this.

It’s not the runaway inflation, energy costs, and even food security in many parts of the world. For how dedicated to globalization the organization is, it’s strangely tone-deaf to what is actually happening around the globe.

The truth is the globalist wolves know their sheep.

There is a Latin phrase that applies here:

Praeclarum Custodem Ovium Lupum which means “An excellent protector of sheep, the wolf.”

And in Orwellian Animal Farm fashion, the pigs and the wolves have the sheep bleating for direction as they have lost their ability to help themselves.

I was the pharmacy over the weekend and I overheard a woman at the pharmacy, asking the pharmacist if the they had a polio booster available.

The pharmacists asked “Weren’t you vaccinated when you were young?”  The woman replied “yes when I was 5– but you can’t be too careful — I heard that polio is back.”

The pharmacist assure here that everything was okay –and her reply was “Is there another pharmacy that will give me the booster because I have been to several and they tell me I will be Okay.”

I was waiting for Mark Dice to Jump out and say it was all a joke.

It wasn’t –she was seriously terrified of getting polio.

Obviously listening to the wrong people and feeling like she is being ignored by pharmacists that can’t help or give any advice that she wants to accept.

People seem to have a psychological compulsion these days to enable authority figures and systems – they have been prone to “doing the wrong thing.”

They enable by handing over to these entities the responsibility of filtering through data  to determine what they should and shouldn’t be exposed to.

Even if a person thinks these powers are not corrupt, this enabling and handing over responsibility and power will make them corrupt.

This is a natural law no one can ignore.

However there is more than one power that people have surrendered their agency to and that is to the computer and artificial intelligence,

When we surrender to an authority that is corrupt or a machine that has no care of what or how information is distributed we are well on te way to our own destruction.

Unless you have a reliable inside source, or someone who has seen the events first hand — it is hard to determine just what information is reliable.

Most information people take in is only propaganda, nothing else.

This is how we disseminate information  under the control of the agenda, and the strangulation of information sources that benefit you instead of confusing you.

We live in a sealed black box, under the illusion that the Internet in all of its free information glory is actually managing to supply us with all the information we could possibly need.

Only problem here is that many don’t believe 90% of it because it doesn’t meet the state’s criteria for trustworthy news, we are told most of it is misinformation, and should be avoided like the plague.

The entire world is about to implode, and most people in  don’t have a clue because they have been brainwashed to avoid any information that does not come from the state-sanctioned ministry of truth .

If we bury ourselves in the controlled narrative, we don’t have to bear the responsibility of having to make decisions and fail.

They let daddy and mommy figure all that out for them, to protect them, to relieve them from deciding for themselves what they should or should not read or see or hear, or to facilitate the state’s nefarious, and self-serving, agenda. This all boils down to trust. I think most oppressive regimes begin with the masses trusting the oppressors (of course, they are not oppressors at first but rather present themselves as liberators).

As time goes by these same masses start to see their prison wardens can’t be trusted, and then the censorship and news that is shoved down their throats as obvious propaganda takes on a different character.

It becomes the alternative to the alternative and if the propaganda is successful those with new ideas will be shut down — or forced to adapt to an accepted narrative provided by the state.

There will be an urging by the globalist controllers tio create a governing body over the internet and introduce a new digital utility that will include blockchain technology, metaverse access and information that will be popped directly into the brain through a Neuro000link hook up.

Although the metaverse is being marketed as a “decentralized” universe controlled by its users, that simply isn’t the case. At best it’s a mistake, at worst it’s another example of how internet commerce and information will be controlled by the elites.

If there were a world where the metaverse, or some form of virtual reality, were going to be beneficial to society, it would have to be spearheaded by transparent and accountable organizations with nothing to gain.

Facebook is hardly that sort of organization. And joining them in building out the meta ecosystem are several prominent tech players.

This will almost certainly ensure a continuation of the centralized, monopolistic practices that have allowed unethical behavior, such as harvesting of private data, to go largely unchallenged not to mention the stifling of innovation in the online space.

    We’ll just have to push back, refuse to use WEB3, or any other such utility, and resist and refuse to use any utility that violates human rights and human dignity, Clyde.

    Clyde, that last revelation you said was scary, reminds me of another of those TIME TRAVELLER videos I mentioned a few weeks ago this one station that people born after the year 2300 would have microchips implanted in their eyes. My reaction was ,”I’m glad I’ll be long gone by then.”

    The data harvesting is in overdrive now. Smart tvs are a big harvester but not as big as phones. A lot of smart tvs have microphones built in as well as infrared sensors for sensing ambient light to adjust the picture. My thought on all of the privacy invasion and medical experimentation is that they are searching for a certain type of person. Maybe like when Herod killed the children hoping to kill Jesus as a baby. When some people get older they connect with ancient beings like when the priests say to Jesus you are not even 50 and you claim to see God. The accumulation of knowledge and experience opens the mind to higher realms. I also heard that when the supercomputer reaches full knowledge it will spell gods name YHWH backwards and will end this world.

    Rev. 2:17 applies to the concept of a sovereign, unknown and unknowable identity, to everyone except the holder of it. This is NOT an encryption, and therefore cannot be broken
    (or hacked) operating on a decentralised, open public blockchain, or anything else based on this paradigm (surmise that when GZ staff hasn’t stumbled on something themselves, they don’t wish to discuss it with someone who has).
