The New Biblical Prophet, the Messiah of the 21st century
HARARI, Homo Sapiens WITHOUT
HARARI — SAPIENS, A BRIEF HISTORY OF HUMANKIND — 2011
My first remark is that the book
starts the history of humanity at 70,000 years BCE. At this time all the
migrations out of Africa have taken place and were practically finished. That enables
the author NOT TO CONSIDER the at least 230,000 years of Homo Sapiens’s
emergence before this date 70,000 BCE, and this emergence took place in Africa
and ONLY Africa. This is from my point of view a grave and sinister shortcoming
that is practically racist, de facto segregative against Africans. The author
can then forget to tell us we are all originally black and in the book this
black exclusion is systematic. Later on, when he speaks of the agricultural
revolution, he rightly connects this agriculture with cereals, rice, wheat,
corn, and some other like rye, oats, etc. And here again, since this
agriculture that emerged in Africa too is not based on cereals (except in Egypt
which is not officially black) but on cassava which is a root, the African
continent is entirely ignored. This then becomes a bias, a choice, a desire, an
intention: ignore Africa.
HARARI — HOMO DEUS, A BRIEF HISTORY OF TOMORROW — 2015
This is the too long
presentation of the various ideological, technical, technological and
scientific theories and at times pure dystopias produced today by the
Internet-of-All-Things in the WEIRD world, meaning the new upgraded old WASP
(White Anglo Saxon Protestant) into Western Educated Industrialized Rich and
Democratic. he never questions these elements either in meaning or legitimacy.
Why Western and not Asian. What on earth is an education valid for the whole
“global village” (never attributed to its author, Marshall McLuhan) as he says
so often? Industrialized is not elaborated upon and no question about what
industry is, what it is for, what it produces, what makes the value of these
products, how these products can bring in the added value they carry, where
does this added value come from, and above all could there be any industrialized
world without producers and customers? He easily envisages the total
disappearance of human producers but what would the customers these producers
are, become if they were no longer producers? Could the economy of a country
work if all customers disappeared because of their not being producers at all?
And there will always be a good mind, like Ron Hubbard to say that useless
people have to be liquidated in a vast war against parasitical organisms.

It took Homo Sapiens 300,000 years to become what he is!
300,000 YEARS OF HUMAN EVOLUTION
38-minutes’ Read Illustrated with rock art from all over the world,
HIGHLY MISLEADING EUROPEAN PALEOANTHROPOLOGY
Dr. Jacques COULARDEAU
GENEVIEVE VON PETZINGER – THE FIRST SIGNS, UNLOCKING THE MYSTERIES OF THE WORLD’S OLDEST SYMBOLS – 2016
APPENDIX: CHRIS HEGG — ANCIENT UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE OF MAN — 2015
Genevieve von Petzinger has just finished her Ph.D., but she is connected to National Geographic in their Paleoanthropology department. But the book is not up to the research in the field of the last ten or fifteen years, at times even more.
First of all, her locking her personal research onto Europe is of course very dubious and definitely unacceptable in our global world. Then her coverage of Africa is only collecting information about what others have done, but she mentions Sally McBrearty only once haphazardly though Sally McBrearty spoke very loudly against two myths. First she rejected the idea of a Neolithic agricultural revolution. And the second thing Sally McBrearty was very critical of is the idea of a cognitive revolution somewhere around 50,000 BCE, because all the elements these cognitive revolutionaries are putting on the table are all necessary genetic mutations for Homo Sapiens to become a bipedal long distance fast runner when he came out of the forest
The collateral side effect of these mutations is that Homo Sapiens was able to multiply the vowels he could utter and the consonants he could articulate. He could then develop human articulated language.
But Genevieve von Petzinger is short on a few other subjects. She does not study the THREE basic migrations out of BLACK Africa. She is so ignorant on this subject that she does not know about the vast research of Theo Vennemann who proved Old Homo Sapiens in Europe, the Homo Sapiens of the Ice Age that von Petzinger is considering, spoke a set of Turkic agglutinative languages and nothing else.
Moreover, it is not scientifically acceptable to transfer a modern world shamanistic practice onto another practice that is at least 45,000 years older. Such retrospective transfer is a methodological mistake that disqualifies eventual conclusions.
Luckily Genevieve von Petzinger herself concludes that is worth nothing, that no shamanism can be proved. So why on earth did she write and published all these pages on something that is worth nothing?

Between fire and darkness, plainly doomed humanity
The Human Species is Doomed
RYAN GOSLING — HARRISON FORD — BLADE
revive an old film that was considered in 1982 when it came out and in later
years, and has been since and still is, as a classic representing some cultural
or even civilizational achievement is always a difficult task and here again, a
lot of imagination and skill, if not art, has to be found and developed, though
the result is slightly obscure and entangled into complicated intertwined
circumstances that make facts fuzzy more than clearly explained. […]

LA GRÈVE DES PRIVILÈGES
Il est urgent que les clients de la SNCF, de plus les clients réguliers, abonnés ou avec carte de fidélité quelle qu'elle soit soient compensés ou dédommagés commercialement du service commercial non rendu, ou bien nous changerons de crémerie. Il y a le choix aujourd'hui et encore plus d'ici un an ou deux. Quand les trains seront vides les conducteurs, les contrôleurs et les aiguilleurs seront inutiles, sauf les aiguilleurs qui devront assurer le service pour les trains autres que les trains SNCF

Music, poetry and thrilling love story
UNDER THE PAWS OF THE LIONS
IN LIFE THE WORST CHALLENGE IS A LOVING DIVORCE
Two strange birds one day meet along an avenue in a big city, two strange birds of a feather, Ilya and Vanya. An explosion of red relish shakes their minds while an implosion of blue bliss enthuses their hearts. Attraction, appeal, love and fear entrap their souls and throw them down into a dark adventure in some no man’s land, some wasteland they have never visited and they have kept fallow, plowed but unseeded, for an unspecified future that has so far never come.
Fate today resolves to generously fertilize and sow these territories of theirs with the fire of sanguine love and the lure of supine fear. Their love is so powerful that they hate it. Their fear is so compelling and consuming, overwhelming and uncontrollable that pain and torment stoop down and conquer their blood and flesh.
Till the day everything gets into Sour Distressfulness and Miserable Sweetness . . .
Twenty-nine songs dedicated to the strutting bard from Stratford on Avon. Alas without the music available though on Amazon: ASIN: B00J0B57BC

The End of a Genocidal Trail
CÉCILE R. GANTEAUME — OFFICIALLY
INDIAN, SYMBOLS THAT DEFINE THE UNITED STATES — 2017
not ask this book what it does not plan on doing.
It does not plan in
any way to show the Indian genocide and what it meant for the USA. It does not
plan to show the survival of the remnants of all Native Americans in squalid
conditions of oppression, segregation and rejection that followed the final
defeat of these men and women and their being kicked out of any fertile land
after the infamous Trail of Tears that has become sacred to anyone who condemns
this genocide. […]

Le SIDA, arme suprême des intégristes
ROBIN CAMPILLO — 120 BATTEMENTS DE CŒUR — 2017
Nous qui avons survécu cette épidémie, nous nous
retrouverons dans ce film comme si c’était hier. Nous avons survécu que ce soit
grâce aux traitements qui progressivement se sont mis en place, ou bien parce
que nous sommes restés séronégatif, et certains de nous ne savons même pas
pourquoi, et il est temps de se pencher vers ces années 1980 où tout a basculé
de l’amour et de la promiscuité absolue à la peur, la panique, l’abstinence, la
prévention, les précautions, et les visites nombreuses aux hôpitaux et aux

Necrophilia in the Midwest
THREE BILLBOARDS OUTSIDE EBBING,
MISSOURI — 2017
A very sad and
sinister story in a small town in Missouri, bleak indeed. The drama of a mother
whose daughter was raped while dying and then carbonized, burnt down to ashes
or a pile of incinerated bones. […]
Enter in the car and step into the drama
Buick 8 and a lot more soon
STEPHEN KING — FROM A BUICK 8–2002
This book is about a
car as is written on the cover, but in fact, it is not about a car at all,
since it is not a car, though we do not know what it is and we will never know
anyway. What is important though in Stephen King’s work is the use of cars in many
novels and short stories. In fact, we could find a car, more or less benevolent
or malevolent, in most stories, most novels. […]

Two brothers again, fighting for survival
Numb3rs Autistic and Asperger
DAVID KRUMHOLTZ, ROB MORROW, JUDD
HIRSCH — NUMB3RS — 2005–2010
This is a series that
should make you shiver in your armchair, not of cold but of mental disruption,
in other words, it will make you lose your mind. The idea is that everything is
mathematical and everything can be reduced to statistical, numerical networks
of equations and operations that dictate everything that may or might happen on
this earth or in the universe. […]

Don't be afraid of music
Mozart lost in a rainforest
A menagerie more than a jungle
ALEX TIMBERS, ROMAN COPPOLA, JASON SCHWARTZMAN — MOZART IN THE JUNGLE — 2014
The episodes are too short for enjoyment. Half an hour does not even enable a rich episode, at best a sitcom like Seinfeld. The episodes then are becoming some sort of big vignettes but the problems the series is dealing with are too big, too important, too serious to be dealt with in big vignettes that are like isolated and separate slices of a sausage you can never reconstitute.
