kim.com: Official Statement on #SethRich

#SethRich was a hero
I know that Seth Rich was involved in the DNC leak.

I know this because in late 2014 a person contacted me about helping me 
to start a branch of the Internet Party in the United States. 
He called himself Panda. I now know that Panda was Seth Rich.

Panda advised me that he was working on voter analytics tools and other 
technologies that the Internet Party may find helpful.

I communicated with Panda on a number of topics including corruption and 
the influence of corporate money in politics. 
“He wanted to change that from the inside.”

I was referring to what I knew when I did an interview with Bloomberg in 
New Zealand in May 2015. In that interview I hinted that Julian Assange 
and Wikileaks would release information about Hillary Clinton in the upcoming election.

The Rich family has reached out to me to ask that I be sensitive to their loss 
in my public comments. That request is entirely reasonable.

I have consulted with my lawyers. I accept that my full statement should be provided to 
the authorities and I am prepared to do that so that there can be a full investigation. 
My lawyers will speak with the authorities regarding the proper process.

If my evidence is required to be given in the United States I would be prepared to do so 
if appropriate arrangements are made. I would need a guarantee from Special Counsel Mueller, 
on behalf of the United States, of safe passage from New Zealand to the United States and 
back. In the coming days we will be communicating with the appropriate authorities to make 
the necessary arrangements. In the meantime, I will make no further comment.

- you are your own biggest roadblock
- if you can get your thoughts/feelings to support you, you got it made
- your beliefs matter more than most other mental tools available
- at some point in my past, socializing became associated with pain/anxiety
- anxiety is designed to protect oneself from pain

- think of a feeling/belief/situation that is stopping you from getting what you want
- recognize the positive intent and write it down
- say "thank you brain for doing your best to keep me safe"
- associate a tremendous amount of pain to not-changing/staying anxious/staying lazy
- find strongest leverage point
- cast a wide net
- write all the ways it will cost you
- talk about the pleasure created IF you change

- still failed

- if foreign powers have breached federal powers, what about state-level?
- local races
- full-blown panic

Here's the facts: 

- Seth Rich had dirt on DNC 
- Seth was talking to WikiLeaks 
- DNC wanted him gone 
- Seth was killed 
- DC Police covered it up
The FBI released heavily censored emails regarding Hillary Clinton. 
#SethRich fits perfectly into redacted space referring to the informant.
I get death threats all the time but nothing scared me more 
than researching this #sethrich https://t.co/DAks3esuvB

I've relocated to a new city temporarily and am looking for a new location and ways to elevate my situation. Due to financial stress, allergies, and asthmatic conditions, I've been lacking the energy necessary to regularly update these livethoughts, hence my disappearance. Fortunately, whenever I do get back around to these blog posts, I can easily share my status with you, my audience, via Facebook and Twitter and other social media sites. I would get into more detail behind the what-happened aspect but I am unable to say at the moment. Just know that I am focused on growing myself and the dojo.

Autonomy is a way to heal the command center of the human soul.

"My husband said he'd rather our son attack us every day than suffer through that. At age 9, my son became the youngest person with a medical-marijuana license in Rhode Island. A psychiatrist and professor at Harvard Medical School who has been researching cannabis since the 1960s, reassured me that the worst we could do was make our son fall asleep. We settled on White Russian, a favorite of cancer patients in pain, and we transitioned from cookies to an oil tincture that my son received orally every few hours with a dropper. Once, when my son was late getting his cannabis oil after school, he put his head through a window and cut his face in a frenzy of pain. Because my son had to turn in his medical-marijuana license when we moved, we can't go back to get more. What are my choices as a law-abiding parent, when my son's cannabis oil runs out? The look of joy and pride on his face as he rides, same as other kids with their families, on a beautiful waterside bike path in New York is glorious to see."

  1. Russia did not hack the DNC.
    • No evidence.
    • Likely to stoke flames of war at Russia.
  2. #BLMMatterKidnapping is connected to #BLM
    • "Fuck Donald Trump" common shout in #BLM
    • Definitely a hate crime.
    • Don Lemon claims the kids who commited the act weren't evil.

" The quantum computer with the most qubits so far - 20 - is being tested in an academic lab led by Rainer Blatt at the University of Innsbruck in Austria. Whereas classical computers encode information as bits that can be in one of two states, 0 or 1, the 'qubits' that comprise quantum computers can be in 'superpositions' of both at once. This, together with qubits' ability to share a quantum state called entanglement, should enable the computers to essentially perform many calculations at once. This rapidity should allow quantum computers to perform certain tasks, such as searching large databases or factoring large numbers, which would be unfeasible for slower, classical computers. One approach, which Schoelkopf helped to pioneer and which Google, IBM, Rigetti and Quantum Circuits have adopted, involves encoding quantum states as oscillating currents in superconducting loops. If the algorithm is run on a quantum computer made of relatively few qubits, a classical machine can predict its output. The results of the calculation will not have any uses, but they will demonstrate that there are tasks at which quantum computers are unbeatable - an important psychological threshold that will attract the attention of potential customers, Martinis says."

quote: Stephenson also mentioned a book by Julian Jaynes, The Origin of Consciousness in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind, as one of the main influences for Snow Crash.

quote: To be sure, not everyone is cut out for remote work, the same way not everyone is cut out for office work. For my part, I can't fathom going back to regular office work. I found I was frequently disrupted by hallway conversations and "just want to bounce this off you" pivots and were nothing but frustrating.
