The Internet - The first Worldwide Tool of Unification ("The End of History")

" ... Now I give you something that few think about: What do you think the Internet is all about, historically? Citizens of all the countries on Earth can talk to one another without electronic borders. The young people of those nations can all see each other, talk to each other, and express opinions. No matter what the country does to suppress it, they're doing it anyway. They are putting together a network of consciousness, of oneness, a multicultural consciousness. It's here to stay. It's part of the new energy. The young people know it and are leading the way.... "

" ... I gave you a prophecy more than 10 years ago. I told you there would come a day when everyone could talk to everyone and, therefore, there could be no conspiracy. For conspiracy depends on separation and secrecy - something hiding in the dark that only a few know about. Seen the news lately? What is happening? Could it be that there is a new paradigm happening that seems to go against history?... " Read More …. "The End of History"- Nov 20, 2010 (Kryon channelled by Lee Carroll)

“…5 - Integrity That May Surprise…

Have you seen innovation and invention in the past decade that required thinking out of the box of an old reality? Indeed, you have. I can't tell you what's coming, because you haven't thought of it yet! But the potentials of it are looming large. Let me give you an example, Let us say that 20 years ago, you predicted that there would be something called the Internet on a device you don't really have yet using technology that you can't imagine. You will have full libraries, buildings filled with books, in your hand - a worldwide encyclopedia of everything knowable, with the ability to look it up instantly! Not only that, but that look-up service isn't going to cost a penny! You can call friends and see them on a video screen, and it won't cost a penny! No matter how long you use this service and to what depth you use it, the service itself will be free.

Now, anyone listening to you back then would perhaps have said, "Even if we can believe the technological part, which we think is impossible, everything costs something. There has to be a charge for it! Otherwise, how would they stay in business?" The answer is this: With new invention comes new paradigms of business. You don't know what you don't know, so don't decide in advance what you think is coming based on an old energy world. ..."

More people in Taiwan will soon be able to make payments with their mobile phones after the country's Financial Supervisory Commission announced that banks in the country can apply for approval to integrate credit card functions with card holders' handsets.

The commission made the announcement on Jan. 15, after Taiwan's Bankers Association completed and filed the standard security control procedures required for making credit card payments with mobile phones.

With the new mobile payment service and the existing mobile banking service, users will be able to transfer money, pay bills, shop online and make credit card payments through their mobile devices, a bank official said.

Compared with the ongoing trial project related to mobile phone payments, which is carried out by five local banks, the official scheme will allow shoppers to make payments that exceed the current limit of NT$3,000 (US$480), officials from the commission said.

The five banks taking part in the pilot scheme are Chinatrust Commercial Bank, Taipei Fubon Bank, Union Bank of Taiwan, Taishin Bank and Cathay United Bank.

However, card holders will still have to sign a receipt or provide pin numbers if their purchases exceed NT$3,000 (US$480), which is mandatory under current regulations.

Moreover, in addition to the existing method of making credit card payments through a specially made phone casing, which has been adopted by banks in the trial scheme, the new regulations will allow banks to store the card information on mobile phone SIM cards or memory cards.

To ensure transaction safety, credit card issuers are required to follow the rules formulated by the Bankers Association and meet security standards designed for credit card payments made through mobile phones.
