I say it's over, unless there are other questions that you have
which you don't understand.
This is the application of relativity, that all things are relative.
You can't know exactly the way things work.
You can only know what you can receive.
There's a gadget that scientists use
to see if there's an electromagnetic field here.
They also have a gadget they lower from an airplane
(like a big disk) with an electric current going around in a circle.
There's a lot of iron under the land
and it slows up the electric current.
Instead of going around geologically looking for iron
the airplane drops this down, and it flies over the Earth
and it tells you where the iron is
(do you understand? ) by a current moving around in a coil.
It's called a magnetometer.
That's how they know.
In the old days they used to dig down, find metals and say
"This is a good place for it!"
Nowadays, with a prism, a certain type of prism
arranged in a certain way, if you aim it at a star.
It tells us there's no oxygen on that star
no nitrogen, no water.
The prism, the color bands, tell you what there is on that planet.
It was discovered accidentally
when the Germans made airplanes that were lighter and stronger.
They didn't know what it was made of. They heat the metal
so it's bright white hot and run it through a prism.
They get a color band, and the color band says:
2% magnesium, 1% carbon, cobalt
(you know what I mean?). It's called spectral analysis.
We can turn a spectrum on anything today
and if we heat it so it's white hot, we can tell what it contains.
That's how they knew there's no air on the moon
before they ever went there, but normal people [ask]
"How did they know there's no air on the moon? They've never been there!"
There are other ways, but they don't know about spectroscopes.
Do you know about spectral analysis?
A lot of people don't know about those things, so they [say]:
"How the hell do they know? My opinion is just as good as theirs!"
They don't look into it and say "How do they know?"
They speculate, you know what I mean?
That's why we have so much trouble with people
because they do not have a common way of seeking information.
They say "If you ask me, I think my opinion's just as good as yours."
Good.
People want to feel equal to you.
They say "That's your opinion, now I'm going to give you mine."
They think one opinion is as good as another
and that's valid amongst people that don't know how to check things out.
They should say "I wonder how they know there's no water on the moon"
but wondering that, they don't go to their computer and say
"How do people know that?"
I don't know if your computer will handle that
but your computer will tell you every phase
of metals with a memory. If you put in
'metals with a memory' or you put in 'materials with a memory'
you'll get more than metals with a memory.
If you put in 'What is memory?'
(you know what I mean? ) That's another question altogether.
We don't ask those questions
because we're not brought up to ask such questions.
We're brought up [with]: If you get money you can buy anything;
a Rolls-Royce, or a big house with 40 rooms.
Most aims are for money, not scientific instruments.
If you wonder why do people only think of making money?
[It's] because they can buy any car, any house, pay off people.
Money is a symbol and it can get you anything you want.
If you study chemistry, you might learn about chemicals
but you can't afford to live in a nice house.
That's why people are money-oriented.
Not because they're bad or greedy.
[It's] because money gives them what they want
and without it they can't have what they want.
Is that real clear? It's rewarding to people.
If helping people is rewarding you instead of money
that's different, but you'll be abused by it.
You'll have to drive a car that breaks down
because you don't have the money to buy a car that doesn't break down.
A brand new Mercedes will last longer than the average car
but you can't afford that.
If you use magnetic braking, it will last longer
but you can't afford it.
People with money ask "What's the best braking system?
I'll take two. " You know what I mean?
"How do I make my house fireproof? " "You do this. You do that"
and they can afford it.
Without money, you're pissed off by people
sleeping in the street. You're broke.
Everybody says "This guy is a bum!"
I've met, what they call 'bums'
that were so well read, that they didn't want any part of the system.
They lived in poverty. I think I told you about the guy in Haiti
with a shirt made of nothing but patches.
I couldn't tell which was the real shirt
because it was so patched up.
He was well informed in semantics.
The shirt he wore looked like a guy put a hand grenade in it
and blew it up. There were holes all over it
and torn, and he still buttoned it up because that's all he had.
He loved to read, and he was very well informed
in what he read
but he was pissed on by everybody.
I talked to him for hours. He was bright as hell
but he couldn't identify with being part of the world.
So, they were considered bums
and I consider politicians, bums
and people that design bombers, bums
and the people that made the atom bombs, dangerous
because they gave it to people who were not wise enough to use them.
They couldn't take that into account, but they loved the challenge
of solving the problem.
Even the Bible says "Cast ye not pearl before swine."
You know what that means? If you give a pig a pearl
it doesn't say "Gee that's great, thank you!"
If you give an atom bomb to an undeveloped country
they'll blast the hell out of people they disagree with.
They'll poison the Earth. They don't care about that.
They're not wise enough to use it.
That's what "Cast ye not pearl before swine" means to me.
Don't give people atom bombs. Don't give people bombers
unless they learn to live together in peace!
You give them airplanes, spectroscopes and things like that
so they can educate kids in spectral analysis
and magnetometers, and all the things they don't know exist.
They will not make their own conclusions.
They'll say "Let's put a spectrometer on that and try to find out."
They don't even think that way today. They think
"Man will always be greedy, no matter what you do."
You can say that man has always been greedy
due to scarcity or fear of loss.
A man can have a million dollars and still steal
because he wants to secure his position.
He wants to make damn sure that even if the banks fail
he has money buried under the mattress
or under the ground in a trunk in the backyard.
People are insecure because they've known banks to fail
and all their money that they put in the banks is gone
because the bankers called other bankers and said "Hey!
We're going to sell out. We're going to close down in three months.
Take your money out" to their friends in the banking business.
They did that first, so there was nothing left
even though a guy worked all his life and saved up $800,000.
When the bank failed, they were lined up outside the banks
demanding their money. The banks said "We don't have it"
and the people killed themselves because they felt
they'd let their families down.
So people that don't put money in the banks
they have a locker in banks where you can put cash
and it gets no interest
but that can't be touched by the banks. They can't invest it.
In that way came a form of security.
If you put a million dollars in the bank, if you did that
and you get interest, you get about $50,000 a year in interest
so you don't have to worry about anything.
You can live on $50,000 a year as long as your million stays there.
And that puts it on the back of other people.
[Roxanne] - We should... I should go down and... - Yes, OK.
That was the last portion of a talk on the subject of relativity
and he covers some other things in there, as well.
If you'd like to hear more of that
as well as other lectures in audio format
please go to the twitter page that we just set up
where we will post links to more new material including answers
to questions and more current update briefs.
I'll put a link to the twitter below.
In addition to the Venus Project tours
which are given on scheduled Saturdays
Jacque continues to give new lectures almost daily
in which he covers all areas of social designs, human behavior
and more in depth issues that are important to consider and understand
when learning about this direction and way of thinking.
We're also doing our best to get
these talks edited and released onto DVD and expect to have
about 15 to 20 new lectures available as soon as we can.
If you check on thevenusproject. com, you go to the store
check that out. In the next hopefully few weeks
there will be some new material available there.
Thanks for watching, and also The Venus Project
is appreciative of everybody that's out there
in the trenches talking about these ideas that are not so easy
to talk about with 'normal people'.
As Jacque always says "We have a tough job ahead of us
but I'd rather have a tough job than to go along with this system."
