Orb near the TV again

Orb near the TV again

It’s not only TV but I find it funny how it’s always around it. My house is spic and span clean, there is no static to lure dust and if that was the case the basement will be filled with "Orbs". I never had them in my house though I did see them with my own eyes when I was getting over an illness and not just once but several times though it stood still and looked like something was moving inside. It must have been a pulsating orb but used to be in the corner of the hallway where it lead to the bedroom I once slept in. We had paranormal activities in our house too and even our house keeper we once had said that there are spirits in the attic several of them. She never went up there but kept all her cleaning product at the bottom. She felt uneasy she said. My roommate never told me of this until one night when I was in my bedroom working with the computer I felt several around me and I put my arm out and told them to get away. I felt as if I was cutting water, I seen a women twice. It was when I got better, going out taking videos of my deer and then I got myself 2 cats they went away. Maybe they were saying goodbye? I don’t know. I also saw a women with a white dress out in the backyard and this I don’t know if it was a dream or real. I was sleeping and suddenly I felt this strong wind coming from the kitchen. This is when I started to sleep on the couch. I got up and went to the kitchen and the door was opened and it was as if the women was telling me to come out. It was all too real but to this day I don’t know.

When my deer was killed and started to do more praying and a friend committed suicide I started to photograph orbs in my house which I hear it happens to others who had someone close to them die whether be human or non human animals.

Curiosity AI – Artificial Intelligence in Virtual Worlds

Curiosity AI - Artificial Intelligence in Virtual Worlds

Flickr only shows a short clip… see the video in its entirety here:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=lKTP36tqwK0 or here: archivopedia.com/Curiosity/About.html


Humankind has often wondered, “Is there intelligent life beyond Earth?” With the recent Augustine Report findings and the New NASA Plan that stresses unmanned exploration, the demand and use of humanlike and non-humanlike machines to be the robotic explorers in our solar system and beyond has become increasingly important. Robotic explorers, both humanlike and non-humanlike in appearance, can reduce the danger to humans by gathering environmental data and sending that data back to Earth for detailed analysis. Perhaps of greatest importance, AI robotic explorers have the potential to serve as “intelligent assistants” to aid those working in “the field.” These hypothetical scenarios are modeled in the virtual world Second Life project “Curiosity AI.” In particular, the ability of AI machines to control other machines; to sense, transmit and remember environmental data; and to perform tasks in groups are explored.


In a presentation given by Tara Estlin, one of NASA’s Artificial Intelligence programmers whose work has been useful for several Mars rovers, one of the problems identified is the need for In-Situ data analysis. Data transmitted by the rovers only has a certain window of dish time when transmitting to the DSN receivers on Earth, so reducing the amount of data sent to only the most relevant is an important goal. The ability for an AI to summarize data therefore would be an asset. This demonstration shows Curiosity Scientist delegating to the rover a request to the Phoenix lander—to calculate and report the sum the first 20 readings of atmospheric pressure data for day 5 of the Phoenix mission. One way this type of in-situ analysis could be used is to detect extreme pressure drops which may be a sign of dust devils. If these spontaneous dust devils were detected, more than one robot could be coordinated so as to record these interesting phenomena while they are occurring.


The simulated Mars Embla is an example of an expert machine. AI can be used to identify other AI and delegate responsibility to a machine with a specific expert capability, perhaps one that it lacks itself, like the previous example. One of the possibilities for future systems is an expectation that AI may serve as emissary exchange agents for collection and routing of other AI queries. This type of cooperative behavior allows communication with each other and the coordination of behavior to jointly accomplish tasks. In Second Life one way this can be accomplished is by programming robots to listen for certain commands while others ignore them. Another way is to program robots to only listen to certain AI agents, and ignore all other agents. In real life, the Curiosity rover is limited by its size, speed, and need to travel along a sometimes difficult terrain. In this simulation, Curiosity Scientist tells the rover to launch the Mars Embla swarm. The Mars Embla, modeled on the actual Embla, is small, travels much faster than the rover (50 mph compared to .6 mph), and hovers above the ground capable of flying up to 10,000 feet (which is above Mars’ dust devils). The Embla swarms quickly spread out to cover a lot of territory. The swarms are programmed to maintain a certain distance from each other. The swarms might be used to return simultaneous, multi-location readings back to Curiosity Scientist. In this case they are temperature readings, but they could be any type of readings or video capability for which the Embla is equipped. These readings might then be processed by Curiosity Scientist for in-situ analysis.


Generally, the capabilities of AI agents can help people better manage “information overload” and to interact with data on a more “human” level. That is, an AI should be able to navigate the information superhighway reducing the information flow to meet the requester’s needs, communicate in natural language, and generate an emotional response. This attempt for computers to have a human-like response, was made famous by Alan Turing in 1950. So where is AI today? What’s beginning to occur is a paradigm shift from software-as-tool to software-as-assistant, performing tasks based on less specific requests. From the user’s perspective, it means less work and help finding information while still lacking a good understanding of the subject matter during the process of learning and decision making. Say I’m a student and I want to write a report about quasars. I don’t know anything about quasars yet, and I’m not sure where to look to find the best information available. Normally, I might turn to Google and use some resources that might in fact be unreliable. Here, Curiosity Scientist, an intelligent agent, can perform a search for my keyword in natural language. I can, of course, make a specific request to "Google quasars" and have the AI return the search result. But what is better is to have the ability to tell the AI to "Find astronomy resources on quasars." The AI is programmed to return results from authoritative, highly respected resources that professional astronomers (experts) turn to, revealing the latest research and findings in the field–sources I as a student probably did not know about. Like a library’s pathfinder, the AI guides the learner to trustworthy, targeted academic resources without the student needing to evaluate what is trustworthy and what is not. Curiosity can also simulate human emotion not only through his words but his actions and facial expressions that are triggered when conversing in natural language—an aspect that was not a consideration for Turing. Turing also assumed that the computer would be honest. But just ask Curiosity and he will tell you he is alive.


Curiosity can move autonomously, navigating around obstacles when needed. When called, he avoids the tall crater and rover to go to Archivist. He rezzes the Odyssey satellite which immediately goes into orbit around Mars. Afterwards, Curiosity can command both the rover and the orbiting satellite to communicate with one another (in this case communication is simulated as green “UHF” waves). Next, Curiosity tells the rover to go to Spirit. The rover responds by moving to a waypoint location near the Spirit rover. Both Curiosity Scientist and the Curiosity Rover are able to go into an “Explore” mode, where they move in pseudorandom motion within a limited range. Here, Archivist tells Curiosity Scientist to wander about, meaning he can move around within a 50 meter range. In this case, he unexpectedly wanders outside the Mar sim and falls into a pit. Without assistance, Curiosity navigates his way out of the pit and back into the Mars sim.

In addition to the movement skills demonstrated, Curiosity Scientist has many capabilities that just can’t be covered in this short video. For example, Curiosity can perform 133+ animations, communicate in both local chat and IM, and Tweet his location. He can make observations about avatars , such as performing “facial recognition” of sorts, to associate an avatar with their photograph. Curiosity even has his own group—and, on a timer, detects nearby avatars and automatically invites them to join. The rover also has a laser, which simulates the actual Curiosity rover’s ability to detect the chemical composition of targeted rocks when rocks and the laser come into contact. Generally, agent actions can be immediate or scheduled. In Second Life, immediate questions are asked in local chat while scheduled tasks offer and on and off feature. Finally, for those without access to Second Life, a video stream to UStream (when broadcasting) simulates machine vision where viewers can watch the action live.

Focus Your Faith in God, Spirit and The Angels in The Light

Focus Your Faith in God, Spirit and The Angels in The Light

Over these next few days, when many family and friends are worshipping in their church of choice, it is equally important for you to know that your heart must also be filled with joy. This means you should be paying respectful attention to beliefs of others. It also means that you should be rejoicing that the world is still a place of deep love; even in its darkest moments. When that is occurring, we see it as the perfect time for you to share the light within your heart. Be the beacon of contentment for many people who either cannot or choose not to absorb the perfection of the meaning of Easter.

After all, we see this as one of the greatest measures of inspirational symbols of hope. It comes to you from the highest of Ascended Masters. His resurrection was intended to be a signal of everlasting life on the other side. When you arrive back to that side, you will find a place that is permeated with pure love. You cannot escape it, nor be fearful on the Golden Side. Feeling the love of God and the land of angels cannot be fully understood by those in a physical body. Be warned that this is a much more intensified feeling when you get there by the many natural ways for the soul to advance.

We only want you to be thinking about the happiness of this anniversary with an intent that flows deep into the womb of the Creator. Know that you are blessed. It is a blessing that comes to you no matter where you travel because you are worthy and deserve to be treated with love and respect. You are perfect in the eyes of angels and will be released of your purported sins. Forgiveness is a divine attribute and one that we hope all people on earth can learn and abide by. This is one of the most important spiritual principles to live and breathe. With your faith in God, you have the power to accomplish anything. May your days be filled with the love you seek. These are The Spoken Words of Spirit.

Elizabeth Revelely Radical Self Care – Body Spirit and Mind in Tune With Breathing and Water

I just had the most amazing session in what people call self care or radical self care but I have to admit, I was a bit skeptical at first. The thought that the simple things like breathing, water and thought could turn ones life around was one that I couldn’t grasp until I checked it out.

So I went for an hour consultation to meet a radical self care specialist here in Hawaii and right off the bat, she made me fell relaxed just based on her presence. She sat me down and started to point out that the way I was breathing or lack thereof was the first step to a better life.

After explaining to me the aspect of breathing correctly, we proceeded to do an exercise with the diaphragm. It was completely amazing. I didn’t realize how much I was restricting my breathing/flow of oxygen to my body with a tense diaphragm.

Then we spent time on in-depth knowledge and understanding of the power of water and how it is the single most underrated bit of information among the public. She told me that water is life and that many take it for granted and don’t drink enough of it to keep the body completely hydrated. The main reason for that is that there are so many “water substitutes” that stimulate the sense of taste (soda, flavored drinks) that people are not interested in water.

And finally, the power of choice. I think we all struggle with some kind of faith in the power of thought. She spent time and talked to me about the power of thought in a way were she herself seemed to be in such command of. She didn’t talk about the power of thought for things like money and wealth but for peace of mind. From what she had been talking to me about I had my own break-through and realized that on the surface, the power of thought pertained to will-power; the one thing that seems to be my biggest challenge.

I guess to write this is to let me know that I have accepted what I thought was a fad type movement as a way of life. The form of radical self care was not so much radical as it was an understanding that we as a people have gone way beyond the scope of self maintenance with seeking quick fixes instead of techniques that we were born with and already know.

Mars, Spirit after global dust storm

Mars, Spirit after global dust storm

A mosaic of images taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit after a global dust storm. The solar panels can be seen along the bottom of the image, and are relatively heavily coated with dust.

The fact that this mosaic exists indicates that the rover’s Panoramic Cameras (pancam), pointing system, onboard computer, solar panels, batteries, and communication system are all functioning (at the time the images were taken).
