The importance of the Readiness Period for speech, listening, and decision making

Libet gave participants of his experiments a simple task, while measuring their brain activity: they had to decide to flex a finger whenever they wished, and note the position on a fast-moving clock at the precise moment they took the decision.

The result was that the brain showed activity at least 400ms before the participants became aware of their “decision making.”

Here’s a diagram showing what’s going on:1

“RP” stands for “Readiness Potential,” that is, the supposed build-up in brain activity before the decision to act and the subsequent action. What we see is that this brain activity starts before the participants became aware of their intention to flex the finger.

The results have led the no-Free-Will crowd to [falsely] exclaim, “see, everything is driven by your brain, and you taking decisions is just an illusion!”

However, this seems to be a typical case of taking something very specific and isolated out of context and then drawing conclusions based on existing biases.


The exercise of free will in basic FIML is done during the “Readiness Potential” period described above. FIML done with a partner is an exquisite exercise of free will that completely changes how we speak and listen for the better. FIML is somewhat difficult because it requires being aware of the Readiness Potential period close to its onset. But this can be learned with practice. Buddhists or others who practice mindfulness may find this part of FIML to be rather easy. From this point of view, FIML can be described as mindfulness shared by two people, or pair-work mindfulness. FIML mostly focuses on interpersonal speech and listening but also includes all other interpersonal semiotics. More posts related to FIML and brain science can be found here. ABN

Two threads analyze Balenciaga

Both of these threads are admittedly speculative. It must be that the people controlling artistic expression are promoting these designers and encouraging them. Some of the photos are very good but most depend entirely on disturbing dark themes. Add these to Satanic themes in CERN opening ceremonies and elsewhere and we cannot turn from the suspicion that so much of the evil we see in our world today is inspired by and supportive of demonic arts, beliefs, and practices. In Buddhism, this world is a mix of light and dark, good and bad, moving toward the Tathagata or away from. Christianity emphasizes the power of Satan. In the West we are more deeply influenced by Christian thought and thus express it more in artwork. But the underlying conflict between good and bad is also prominent in Eastern thought and traditions. ABN

‘Died Suddenly’ – An Explanation

Protein Folding

It sure looks like protein folding irregularities lie at the heart of severe COVID-19, long COVID and vaccine harm (both immediate and delayed), these being driven by the presence of the spike protein. A Midwestern Doctor draws upon a solid body of research to reach the following conclusion:

In summary, this study demonstrated that there are always slightly irregular or misfolded fibrous blood clots being formed within the body, but at the same time the body has a mechanism for removing them. However, once small amounts of spike protein are added into the mix (at concentrations I believe will be reached through vaccination) those irregular fibrous clots spiral out of control and come to dominate the clotting process. At this point, the body’s mechanisms for removing them are no longer able to outpace this growth function and they instead grow until they are constrained in size by the blood vessels they are within like the large fibrous clots shown in Died Suddenly.

Ante Mortem Hypercoagulation

My penny worth – as expressed in my initial article – is that these clotting processes likely continue after death, these grotesque results being an example of ante mortem hypercoagulation. I’ve chewed this over with a switched-on GP and we agree that the size and quantity of fibre and clots, along with the level of blood decomposition seen by embalmers, is not plausible in a living person. We presume that the emergence of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) and the rise in excess young death around the globe is due to onset of these processes.


Many have pointed out problems with the movie “Died Suddenly” and also many have pointed out there is a lot of evidence for the clots. This article provides a probable explanation for why so many clots are being found by embalmers. ABN

What is Causing the Blood Clots from “Died Suddenly?”

The documentary “Died Suddenly” was recently released and went viral. I am personally a bit torn on this movie because it covers a lot of important ground and is presented in a highly persuasive manner that will red-pill many who are on the fence, but it also has a variety of errors and tangental conspiratorial content which makes it prone to being debunked and discrediting this message to those who were on the fence about it.


Endgame Ukraine; Putin’s Battleplan

“Ukraine’s unquestioned strategic center of gravity is its western corridors to the Polish border where the vast majority of its war support enters the country. Their operational center of gravity is their resupply lines emanating eastwards from Kyiv to Ukraine’s various frontline positions. Without those two corridors, it would be nearly impossible for Kyiv to sustain wartime operations for more than a few weeks. Putin, therefore, may calculate the best use of those 218,000 additional troops will be to launch a three-pronged axis to cut both of those supply routes.” Lt. Colonel Daniel L. Davis, Senior Fellow for Defense Priorities and Contributing Editor at 1945


The question is not ‘Is there a pull forward effect?’ ~ THE Random Dude

The question is not ‘Is there a pull forward effect?’

The question is ‘Why would a person take advisement about Covid trends, from someone who does not even grasp that it exists?’

All Cause Mortality Analysis = Deception

The pull forward effect exists in ALL competently run numbers.

Only charlatans leave it unaddressed.

This is important information that all of us should understand. It is not hard to understand. This string has follow-up questions and comments. MSM and US health officials and academics consistently fudge the importance of this kind of statistical analysis or—what’s worse—do not understand it or even know of it. ABN

The Richest Man in the World

The purpose of this essay is threefold: (1) to bring to the attention of readers the existence of a long-standing conspiracy about the identification of “The Richest Man in the World”, (2) to dismiss from contention the current list of candidates, and (3) to document that a small number of Jewish banking families operating out of the City of London have for generations held these wealth records with fortunes that are orders of magnitude above anything we might have imagined. I will address these points in reverse order, and deal with the current crop of wunderkind at the end.


If this true, there is no need to worry about a one-world government because it already exists and will do what it wants. The author of this article answers a reader’s question thusly: Q: “I’d love to read something on how to counter this phenomenal concentration of wealth, and some successful examples from the past (Reconquista Spain, Eastern Roman Empire, Tsarist Russia…?).” A: I don’t think it can be countered. I think it is already too total. The only solutions from the past that I am aware of, are the total expulsions. I doubt that is possible today. ABN

Trudeau did everything he could to make sure Canadians couldn’t get a hold of Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine, but he made sure every hospital had plenty of Remdesivir

🇨🇦 Trudeau did everything he could to make sure Canadians couldn’t get a hold of Ivermectin or Hydroxychloroquine, but he made sure every hospital had plenty of Remdesivir. Here is a list of evidence I’ve compiled over the last two years. 🧵

Remdesivir is causing many diagnosed Covid Patients to Die

I only block a** h***s.

The reality is —> They can’t do the work.

They crave so badly to be hailed as a super-smart-troll.

If I wasted my time teaching insincere people to do this work, it would take 2+ yrs. In the meantime we all would suffer a net loss in research & insight.

Only the troll wins.

I have had several congressional/senate offices call, to have their PhD analysts walk through the work with me.

They asked pointed questions. I gave specific and resolute answers.

I explained how I did each step, how it was conservative, and how it was reality checked.

So I hope that you all understand, why I do not consider trolls as any form of ‘peer review’.

I will not suffer fools.

This is too important.

This is an important post by TES. For many months, he has been plagued by credentialed trolls even though he has explained his work fully. In this post, he is clear as a bell so even the trolls can understand. His work is an example of what the entire West is up against. Good people doing good work are trolled, cancelled, vilified by what are essentially parasites ensconced in parasitic communities, i.e. the woke, virtually all of academia, most of government, IC, foreign actors, secret societies, etc. TES is a rare example of an individual who has been able to bear the abuse and triumph. On the one hand he is an inspiration. On the other, he shows how bad our situation is in stark detail. He possesses rare skills, rare moral strength, rare perseverance that few can match. ABN
