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. ..."

Furious NatWest customers pledge to leave bank following latest IT crash

NatWest is facing a growing backlash from angry customers who claim they will shut their accounts after another IT problem at the bank left millions without access to their money on Wednesday night.

Customers were unable to withdraw cash, pay for goods and services, or carry out telephone and online banking on Wednesday 6 March and into the early hours of Thursday 7 March after an apparent IT error caused the bank's systems to crash.

NatWest said in a statement it was "disappointed" with the disruption but that the problem, which it declined to elaborate on, had been resolved.

However, some of its customers were still reporting problems this morning. At 9am on Thursday Daniel Adkins tweeted: "Still can't access my online banking. #Natwest statement says everything was fixed at 1am."

Another customer, stigbeater, tweeted Natwest to ask: "When will online banking be back on? Try to login = ssl connection error!"

It is not the first time the bank has been hit by IT problems. In June 2012 a botched software upgrade at the Royal Bank of Scotland group meant millions of NatWest, RBS and Ulster bank customers were left without access to their money for more than a week in some cases.

It now appears the latest technical problem has proved the tipping point for many RBS customers, who took to Twitter on Thursday to say this time they would shut their accounts.

Phil, who tweets as @wheatear9 said: "Why oh why have I stayed with #naffwest I should know better and will depart." Andrew Bissett, meanwhile, tweeted: "Disgraceful service. Am moving my banking to Santander! You cannot be trusted with our money!!!"

Anthony Gray said: "No money on my Oyster card last night. No way of getting money out. Had to walk home. Will now spend today changing banks."

Following the previous NatWest computer meltdown, and other banking problems including Barclays Libor-rigging scandal, millions of people switched their accounts to co-ops, building societies and credit unions.

The Co-op saw applications for its accounts increase by 25% in the week following the last NatWest IT debacle; Charity Bank, which lends its savers' money to charities, saw a 200% increase in depositors; the Ecology Bank had a 266% jump in applications; and Triodos, a Bristol-based "sustainable bank", a 51% increase.

Speaking about NatWest's latest problems, Laura Willoughby of the campaign group Move your Money said: "This is like groundhog day. Could RBS make things any worse for their already battered and bruised customers?

"What is for certain is that RBS customers already seething from news of Libor fines, bonuses and last years meltdown will not be as forgiving a second time around."

A spokeswoman for RBS was unable to say what caused the latest problems and whether or not affected customers would be compensated. However, the bank does not appear to be offering any additional assistance to customers. Those who are tweeting it to complain of fees incurred because of failed direct debits are being told by the bank to "speak to the charges team".
