The Speed and Complexity of Change0
By Rahasya Poe
Change—it is the one thing we have always been able to count on. But the times are different now, and the complexity and the speed of change are growing exponentially. We were on fairly firm ground until recently, when the advancement of technology reached a point at which technology itself is creating even more advanced technology; without supercomputers a lot of what we see, and don’t see, happening in our world would not be possible.
Some may ask, “If change is inevitable, why even be concerned? Whatever is going to happen is going to happen no matter what we do or don’t do.” Well, that’s true to a certain extent, but picture it this way: We are driving down the road and the accelerator gets stuck and we are going faster and faster. One could say, “Whatever is going to happen is going to happen,” and let go of the steering wheel, and that driver would, to a certain extent, be correct. But it would also be to everyone’s advantage to at least take hold of the wheel, watch the road, and have some control over where we are headed, even if it is way too fast.
But here’s the real problem as I see it. Along with the rapid advance of technology, which has brought us unprecedented advancement in the medical world with technology that can make all of us a lot safer, there are other areas of advancement that consistently slide in under the watchful eyes of most of us. Take Senate Bill HR 4919, which was passed in July 2016 as a “companion” bill. This will allow tracking devices (RF devices—microchips) to be put into people with autism, mental disabilities, Alzheimer’s, bipolar disorder, and a list of other developmental disabilities. And as with most new laws that are kept out of the media, we have to ask why? The red flag for me popped up when I looked deeper and found that this will be under the scrutiny and control of the attorney general and the Department of Justice and state and local law-enforcement agencies instead of the Health and Human Services.  To put this in a larger context, think about this: The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention says “about” 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). From 2006 to 2008, about 1 in 6 children in the United States had a developmental disability. Some verifiable statistics say these estimates are much higher now. During the 1970s and ’80s 1 in 2,000 children was diagnosed with autism. Without getting into what’s causing autism, which is being researched extensively at the moment, one has to ask what this means to almost 4 million autistic children: Are we going to start “chipping” all of them now? This in itself may or may not be a good thing, but we need transparency with programs such as this and we don’t have it.
I bring this up because this and so many other things are happening under the radar. Actually, the only thing we hear about are the events where the people make so much noise that the news finally hits the corporate media outlets, for example the DAPL-Standing Rock protests, but even then it’s so distorted that it usually lacks credibility.

As some of you know, I have a segment on the Golden Road television show called “Rahasya Uncensored,” in which I bring things such as this to the attention of the public. It’s never my intention to tell others “what” to think; I am thoroughly satisfied if I can give them enough facts to get them “to” think. If there’s one thing I believe in, it would be the power of the human spirit to make good choices, but only if they have good information.
My last show was an interview with Dane Wigington of GeoEngineeringWatch.org on climate change and how almost all of the climate engineering programs (more than 50 programs at the moment) are going on without the attention or even knowledge of the vast majority of the uninformed public. If you go to my Facebook page (www.Facebook.com/rahasya.uncensored) you will see that most people are starting to wake up to this and many other stories we’ve been fed through the years. As John Adams once said, “Facts can be stubborn things.” You can also visit www.RahasyaUncensored.com to watch the edited versions of my “Rahasya Uncensored” segments on Channel 11, which is out of Chico but broadcasts in five counties. Most people are craving information because we are waking up to the fact that something is terribly wrong and we are not being told the truth. The way I see it is that it’s all of our duties to “Question their answers” and demand the truth. I will post a very interesting Ted Talk on my website in which a former CBS reporter exposes everything from media lies, Internet shills, and astroturfing. It’s important to also realize that there are a lot of disinformation websites and You Tubes out there so always use discernment when looking for truth.
As a final thought I would like to thank the readers of Lotus Guide for their support and feedback on the “Rahasya Uncensored” column and the fact that I am touching upon some issues that so many of us are thinking about. The truth is, I would rather be writing about how I see that we are approaching a time when something amazing is on the horizon, something beyond our human understanding. This isn’t to say that it won’t be challenging, but if we can all pay attention and do what we can to steer us in the best possible direction, we can avert a mountain of suffering for the vast majority of people on this planet. The communities we live in here in Northern California have their problems but for the most part, we have some incredible people and organizations working in the background like hospitals and emergency medical services to care for us when we are sick or injured, the local police and fire departments that protect us when we are threatened, and basically put the fires out in our lives, both figuratively and actually. So when you finish with this article take a moment and feel gratitude that we still live in a great country where we still have the right to say what’s on our minds and disagree publically without “too much” fear of retribution. Yes, it’s true, I am a realist, but I’m also a dreamer, so it’s nice to know that I’m not the only one, as John Lennon once said.
My next TV show will be January 22, 2017 at 6pm on a Sunday on Channel 11 and some cable networks. Read the article on Golden Road television in this magazine for more information.
