If any of you missed this show, here it is, the clearest take on the Gun Control issue. Also, juicy info on RnA Drops (interview starts at 22:55)
Bob [Neveritt] says things on this show that no other human being has ever said before! Here are just some of the quotes that tickled my tactility:
"That [The gun] is the American penis, it is the most intimate, important, body part that the American culture as a meme believe in. What's the point in aggravating that?"
"...guns are an extension of the eyeball...you look and you aim..."
"Americans were built on the printing press, they are the only culture in the world that started with that medium, so they are very heavily, visually biased, and that is why it is such a big issue to wipe away the eye function, which the gun represents."
"The eyeball is the most sacred apparatus, and it's extension, like the book and the gun, in America, and that's why it is such a hot button issue. It doesn't mean Americans are violent, just don't mess with their eyeball."
"The tactile extension since radio and television, into the digital medium, threatens the basic core sensibility of the Americans."
"Americans are actually eyeball/kinetic, verses the Europeans who are actually eyeball/ear, and this is why Americans as a general meme...are really good at rock 'n roll, cars and sex. These are kinetic processes."
"The difference between Americans and Europeans in the kinetic extension, the industry. There is no other culture that is so fanatic and has such a variety of dances [as America]. Dancing is a kinetic art form."
"I always object to politicians never discussing these issues in the sensory terms I am talking about. A politician should not be stirring up crap, they should be trying to provide perspective that smooths everybody over and gets them thinking differently."
"What I have just told you guys is what The President should be saying."
"I came up with a unique pattern; if we look at the battle between the T.V. environment and the new internet or computer or chip environment, Alex Jones represents the chip body, and he goes into CNN studios, and he is up against the T.V. body, which is Pierce Morgan. Pierce Morgan is asking for decency, or give and take, and that's the T.V. affect within the American culture. T.V is now a secondary environment... The new environment is the chip body, and American's use the chip body to go into forums and yell and scream their visually biased point of view. So Alex comes onto CNN and he seems to be unreasonable, he's not trying to match with Pierce or be understanding of his argument. No, Alex is just doing what he does in the chip body, he's there for the Americans to scream and yell and have a chorus of support...so you have two sensory biases there, two technologies, the old passive T.V. body verses the chip body. Alex doesn't understand this, neither does Pierce."
"You don't try to get your point across in the chip body, you just want coverage, you just want a space where you get to say it."
"T.V. doesn't influence people like it did in the 50's or 60's, the chip body influences everything in your life, so it's the medium. And it enhances individual autonomy, and the ability to go around the old center margin broadcasting model, and Alex Jones is a figure for that action."
"Alex should use what I am talking about in his course of argument."
"We today don't live in the United States with the chip body, we live in a weird membrane, it's no longer a global village or global theater, it's a global membrane, and we should be thinking and operating from that level."
"Freedom should not be used as a category of what we are defending. Nobody is free when they have technology mutating them and their kids, their societies and their businesses. What is freedom? What am I free of? I'm not free of electricity."
"I am talking about the larger apparatus that the world works in. Government is just a big bug-a-boo. It's a figure of the bureaucratic level of visual society."
"The reason bureaucracy is growing in the United States ... is that it is a security blanket against the interactivity of tactility, which threatens everybody, every culture."
"As we moved into a weird simulation of tactility...what I call the android meme and modern chip landscape, it threatened even the tactile cultures, like Thailand and Japan. That's where the real identity crisis is. Every cultures image of its medium that it is devoted to is threatened under this weird environment, where nobody can really figure out what is the point, what is the informational conclusion?"
"We've just got to stop looking at things as an extension of our bodies, and that includes freedom of speech. There is so much freedom in The United States when you look at the technological environment. It's way beyond anything any futurist could have imagined...do you realize how much freedom there is, with the ability to express, with the chip technology in all that you do?"
"This is a key point: When Americans scream for freedom, they are thinking in terms of the visual bias idea that the individual can express themselves. But today people express themselves by creating technologies and creating media....so Americans, by freedom, they mean the openness, or less interference to create any kind of expression...like rock 'n roll with Elvis in the 50's, that was a new kind of expression, and the American culture got uptight about that because it wasn't visually biased..."
"You could say that Bill Gates is not an anarchist, he's a nihilist, and nihilism is the disrupting and destroying of your environment, and not caring. Well every new famous inventor does that to American society, and eventually the global society."
"Overall, cultures do not want new technology... because they notice it upsets what they already have."
"...the I-Cell, which is in the RnA Drops and some of our other products, is the new technology that is going to become the new environment. So it upsets every previous tactile technology that ever happened. And the figure, the focus image for that in medicine is big pharma, so we are going to topple big pharma because of the power of this new technology. So we are being violent, we are upsetting the established setup of education in med schools...so the chemical technology that came in in the late 19th century, they are obsolest by RnA Drops, which are not measurable or understood in chemistry terms. That's why I said I was President. I have the authority of knowledge of this new environment, and I have a way to distribute it, and I have a way of making it that nobody else does, along with Carolyn and J.W., and so we are the actual, almost terrorists, in terms of new technical effects the the RnA Drops bring forth. But Americans love to be upset, they love to have new experiences, so they just love the RnA Drops. And then they bring in their visual bias, they say: 'Well, what is this made of, what is my opinion of this? You guys, you guys are CIA', they do all this crazy stuff. Well, that is the normal visual bias of America. Americans think traditionally that someone at the headquarters of some bureaucracy is manipulating them. Not possible with so many technologies that have been developed in the last 30, 40 years. Nobody runs our environment anymore."
"It's not my point of view, I'm just pointing out the weather we are swimming in."
"Scientists cannot measure RnA Drops because they cannot see it. Because there is nothing there on that level. Because it is not a visual phenomenon. It's a weird, tactile, non-physical situation, that came from a non-physical source, and so all those that use their eyeballs to judge their expertise [will not see anything].
"I don't have the truth on my side, I've got the facts on my side."
"We're the only company that admits to the effects we're having."
These are just the bits that jumped out at me. I encourage you to listen to this whole show as it is Bob on fire! You rock Bob, Mr. President. Thanks for giving us the facts. No one else can.
