The debate regarding the topic of God Gives Us Free Will has been a dynamic discussion with my friends, colleagues, peers and grown children.
If you believe in God then you see, feel, hear and sense God all the time. If your an atheist you take the point of view that it is all up to you and God has nothing to do with it.
There is even a more significant element to how we move in the world. What is that? It is our thoughts.
Want to know what your future is going to be? Observe without judgment your thoughts. There is another part of your free will, and that is your stomach. How many times have you said to yourself, “I should have gone with my gut.” Only you can decide what is right or wrong for you, but I can tell you one thing. You can make a decision right here right now that in the next moment by merely making small changes to how you do things, you will experience an astounding shift.
Now imagine how spectacular your life will be when you dump FaceBook. Do it, get rid of your social media. It’s a fake online lifestyle that you are not living anyway. My next dump? Instagram. Don’t let the A.I. take you over.

Reflections on a Quiet Geo-Engineered Day by Mitch Santell
There is a dark cloud over America that no one is discussing. What is it? It is the suicide rate across the country. You would think that living in a first world country that most people would find a sense of happiness in their life.
One in Four Americans are taking some antidepressants, and that little pill they take may make their negative suicidal thoughts worse.
Three groups seem especially vulnerable. Doctors,Veterans,Entertainers.
The first group is medical doctors.
“It has been known for more than 150 years that physicians have an increased propensity to die by suicide. It was estimated in 1977 that on average the United States loses the equivalent of at least one small medical school or a large medical school class to suicide.  Exact numbers are not known. Although it is impossible to estimate with accuracy because of inaccurate cause of death reporting and coding, the number most often used is approximately 3-400 physicians/year, or perhaps a doctor a day. Of all occupations and professions, the medical profession consistently hovers near the top of occupations with the highest risk of death by suicide.”
Surgeon suicide-homicide: What happened to Dr. Chris Dawson?
Sometimes there are no words. Not even a eulogy.
Then one courageous family writes this obituary. (This obituary was written by Rachel Dawson, his wife, with the blessing of his parents.) In it, they share how their son lost his battle with severe depression. How he adored his children. How he sacrificed fun, free time, and relaxation to receive his medical degree. How he took on the challenge of surgical residency. How he was so very damaged by his untreated anxiety, long work hours, and intense stress. How he attempted to self-medicate his hurt. How despite being an intelligent surgeon and a loving father, he did the unimaginable.
I realized the other day that most people grow up thinking in terms of professional affiliations. “I’m going to be an accountant.” “I’m going to work for General Dynamics.”
Somehow, I always thought of my career as a series of projects, not jobs. Projects… things to be invented, funded and shipped. Sometimes they take on a life of their own and last, other times, they flare and fade. But projects, one after the other, mark my career. Lucky for me, the world cooperated and our entire culture shifted from one based on long-term affiliations (you know, ‘jobs’) to projects.
I had a two-part approach to building a career about projects. The first was to find a partner who was willing to own the lion’s share of the upside in exchange for advancing resources allowing me to create the work (but always keeping equity in the project, not doing it merely for hire). Publishers are good at this, and it enabled me to bootstrap my way to scale. The second was to grow a network, technology and the confidence to be able to take on projects too big for the typical solo venture. Complicated projects, on time, is a niche that’s not very crowded…
The stages of a project—being stuck, seeing an outcome, sharing a vision, being rejected, finding a home, building it, editing it, launching it, planting the seeds for growth—I’m thrilled it’s a cycle I’ve been able to repeat hundreds of times over the years.
There’s a difference between signing on to someone else’s project and starting your own. The impresario mindset of initiation and improvisation are at the heart of the project. It’s yours, you own it. Might as well do something you’re proud of, and something that matters, because it’s your gig.
(9:02 Discussion of 1990’s, Harvard Failure, Homosexuality and the Control Grid).
“It amazes me how so many have caught on to the ancient trick of ‘controlled opposition’ or false (Left/Right) polarity in politics but overlook the same game in the religious sphere. When Satanists shock you by their ‘blasphemy’ against ‘God’ they are also tricking you. The great religions are mostly their creation and subterfuge, packed with the symbolism and values of the Babylonian priesthood, their ancestors. They handed down to us the deeply violent and polarizing concepts of sacrifice, the sacred, blood atonement, Heaven and Hell to poison the human heart and mind through the ages. So long as people perpetuate such religious-sacrificial doctrines, actively or passively, the Satanists will gloat in their superiority because that person is, in effect, just a mediocre satanist.
We have all been lied to on a gigantic scale and the Satanists are counting on the truth is too much for us bear.
In any event, it’s worth noting they’re not the ‘genuine ones’ they think they are. In their need to use power over others they betray their fundamental mediocrity (like the god-monsters they worship); they show themselves to be less intelligent than the average person by exulting as a mystery (‘order out of chaos’) what everybody else has long recognized as the scapegoat technique (or strategic stupidity). They are, above all, just another bunch of hypocrites, claiming to ‘give the sheeple what they want’ while actually building, slowly and meticulously, a microcosm of their own cultic system of hierarchies, slaves, terror, and pyramids.
Take away the fear of suffering and death and the Satanist becomes a truly pathetic, almost laughable, figure. We see the pitiful fruit of their imagination. Robots who didn’t rebel.”
Comments on iPhone Cloning of Humanity by Mitch Santell
The change is very subtle but you notice it still the same. What is it? The darting of eyes in the supermarket here in America as patrons (we call them guests), decide if they should pass you on the left or on the right.
The reason that most people don’t know is that the level of wireless wi-fi and radiation coming off portable smartphone devices, plus the cloning off of your thinking skills is enough to take for one person.
In atomization, the subcultural mode’s local communities cannot hold together, because they no longer deliver adequate meaning. The subcultural solution to the problems of self and society—intermediate-scale subsocieties that buffer individuals from national institutions—failed.
Instead, society moves onto global interactive media. Internet social networks support larger, geographically dispersed virtual communities. You no longer need to be in the happening place to get access to a genre or scene. You may not know the gender, race, or nationality of some of your closest friends. It is wonderful to find people who share your nearly-unique interests—but can online relationships replace in-person ones? Can electronic communities provide the same benefits as local ones?
The vestiges of systematic social organization are crumbling. As culture and society atomize, it becomes impossible to maintain a coherent ideology. Religions decohere into vague “spirituality,” and political isms give way to bizarre, transient, reality-impaired online movements. Decontextualized, contradictory, intensely-proclaimed religious and political “beliefs” displace legacy systems of meaning. These are not beliefs in an ordinary sense, but advertisements of personal qualities and tribal identification. The atomized mode generates paranoia, because without the systematic mode’s “therefores,” its structure of justification, there are no memetic defenses against bad ideas.
Technology divides us more than anything else. The more I read and observe, the more I am convinced of this.
Dystopia is everywhere. No longer just a narrative form in the vein of 1984 or Soylent Green, the very word is seeping into our daily news and culture, invoked as readily in the pubs of London as the checkpoints of Gaza. Far from “an imagined … society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic,” dystopia is now used to describe Facebook, Brexit, biometric data, militancy, antibiotic resistance, and HQ Trivia.
A 2017 article in the Nation summed up a great deal of liberal feelings about the current political climate: “With the election of an uber-narcissist incapable of distinguishing between fact and fantasy, all the dystopian nightmares that had gathered like storm clouds on the horizon—nuclear war, climate change, a clash of civilizations—suddenly moved overhead.”
Of course, the Western political and economic upheavals of the past few years are about as dystopian as a party balloon next to the reality of life in, say, North Korea, whose government sums up the rights of its citizens with a simple phrase—“One for all and all for one”—better known in the West for a book that is probably not discussed much in Pyongyang. Like Stalinist Russia and Nazi Germany before it, the totalitarian oppression of the DPRK feels so remote that it becomes almost pantomime. The hysterical weeping of party officials at the death of Kim Jong-il and the assassination of Kim Jong-un’s defector brother, with the killers allegedly told it was part of a “prank” show, feel closer to fiction than fact—stories to be marvelled at, rather than profound human truths. Propaganda and history collide, blurring the lines between fiction and reality; as these lines move, so does our cultural understanding of dystopia.
Reflections on Hollywood Studio fall out by Mitch Santell
Netflix as a company that has the strength, financial backing, and corporate culture to take down the current Hollywood Studio System as we know it! How do I know this? This is the 4th or 5th time that Hollywood has had to confront its own shortcomings.
Netflix can change game plans much faster than a regular studio. The most recent example of this was the new season of Arrested Development. Season 4 which had mixed reviews by fans and critics alike was literally re-mixed, re-edited by Mitchell Hurwitz the Executive Producer (Writer and sometimes Director of the show).
Not only did Mitchell Hurwitz have the integrity to Re-Edit Season 4 on Netflix just days before the release of Season 5, even though Jeffrey Tambor was “accused” of “sexual misconduct,” Mr. Hurwitz did not punish Tambor or the series.
According to the Associated Press:
LOS ANGELES —The creator and executive producer of “Arrested Development” acknowledges that some people will not like his decision to keep Jeffrey Tambor on the show after allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced last October.
“Good people will find this offensive,” explained Mitchell Hurwitz. “I, too, get worked up when I hear about Harvey Weinstein and other people who have taken advantage of people. But I also believe very strongly that we don’t want to live in a world where accusations ruin people’s lives. We have tried that as a human race and it doesn’t always, doesn’t work out great, you know? So accusations are very different than proof and, you know, we obviously are going to support people that haven’t done, that haven’t been proved guilty.”
Hurwitz said production was nearly wrapped on season five when news broke of the allegations made by Tambor’s former assistant and an actress on his other show, “Transparent.”
“Not only do I support him as a friend, but I’ve known him for 20 years. I’ve worked with him for 20 years and I’ve never seen any behavior like that described. I’ve never, even in private, he’s never been in any way inappropriate about, we don’t talk about women or objectify. It’s just not who he is, and he’s got a lot of things that I’d like to list, a lot of really bad qualities I’d like to list for you now, but nowhere in there, in my experience, is any kind of creep,” said Hurwitz.
The “Arrested Development” cast unanimously supported the 73-year-old actor at the Los Angeles premiere Thursday for the cult comedy’s new season. The event also marked one of the first public appearances for Tambor in recent months. Tambor posed for photos with his wife, Kasia Ostlun, but didn’t do interviews with the press.
“We are a family and it’s great to have everybody in the family here,” said co-star Will Arnett.
Inner Secrets Disguised as a Blog Posting by Mitch Santell
There is a real cultural transition happening right here right now in the United States of America. This transition is not new but was never as apparent as it is now.
The change is this: Alpha Men are no longer appreciated, respected or tolerated by the mainstream media.
The solution is this: If you are an Alpha Male, pretend to be a Beta male. The benefit of this is that you would not be harassed, bullied, tormented or gas lamped by people.

The Difference Between Alpha and Beta Males
Alpha Males Are:
Confident – alpha males tend to think very highly of themselves. They aren’t always right or perfect, but they always believe in their own ability and themselves no matter what.
Not Embarrassed Easily – alpha males don’t worry too much about other people’s opinions. If they did they would never speak up, do what they want, or go against social norms.
Masculine – alpha males are men. They come in all shapes and sizes but have common traits: leaders, dominant personalities, comfortable around the opposite sex, etc.
Take What He Wants Attitude – alpha males are not jerks or rude but they believe they are entitled, this allows them to do things and request things an ordinary person would not.
Direct and Honest – alpha males are not afraid to speak their mind. If they need something, they will tell you. They don’t hide behind a lot of fluff when they are talking to you. They tell you things you might not want to hear.
Social – alpha males have a dynamic personality that allow them to connect with all types of people.
Take Chances – alpha males are risk takers (big or small). They aren’t afraid to fail because they know that success comes from taking chances.
Beta Males Are
Nice guys – beta males are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. They help you when you need help, they are courteous and pleasant to be around.
May Question Their Ability – beta males lack the confidence alpha males have. There are times that beta males will second guess themselves or make excuses to not do something even though they are fully capable. They just don’t always realize their potential.
Worry About What Others Think – beta males are usually restricted in life because they care too much about what other people think. This includes family, friends and strangers. These external factors limit what a beta male does and the choices he makes in life.
Puts The Needs of Others First – this isn’t a bad thing, but beta males put the needs of others ahead of their own. They are very giving people and unselfish.
Secretive – beta males don’t always make their desires known to others. Beta males have secrets they keep to themselves including their career aspirations, dreams, and sexual desires. This is usually due to not wanting to be judged by others and may be due to lack of self-confidence.
The most important thing that I work on each day is myself. How can I mentor or produce or inspire another person if I am not the best version of myself?
My observations and opinions are based on my experiences, books I have read, conversations that I have had with others. It is my quest to be coachable and willing to revisit topics and situations that are not comfortable.
Living in a post-modern era here in Southern California reminds me of an out-take from Blade Runner. Since I can’t read your mind, it is best I work on my own.
