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. ..."

Pope draws half a million Twitter followers

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI boasted hundreds of thousands of followers on his new Twitter account on Tuesday -- just a day after it was unveiled and more than a week before any actual tweets appear.

The English-language version of the @pontifex handle had more than 376,000 followers -- up from 2,400 at the time of the announcement on Monday.

Counting all the eight languages of the accounts on which papally-approved tweets will appear, the number of followers was more than 500,000.

The numbers still represent only a tiny fraction of the world's 1.1 billion Catholics who follow the pope offline and are far lower than for celebrity singers Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber who each have over 31 million followers.

The pope's first tweet will appear in English on December 12.

"I'm not surprised there has been such a strong response," Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said, adding that the initiative had given "a signal of the ability of the Pope and his collaborators to respond to expectations.

"Obviously being a person of a certain age and like other people of a certain age he is not a digital native and will therefore use social networks differently from youngsters but he understands their potential," Lombardi said.

The pope will not be firing off tweets about his personal life but the opinions expressed will be his own, meaning the tweets will not be infallible.

The pope is considered infallible on questions of Catholic dogma.

The first messages will be answers to questions posted for him about matters of faith and afterwards will be drawn from his speeches at the weekly general audience as well as reactions to major world events, according to the Vatican.

Among the thousands of users welcoming Benedict to Twitter with personal messages was Israeli President Shimon Peres, who tweeted: "Our relations with the Vatican are at their best & can form a basis to further peace everywhere."

Others were jokier, with a Bruce III tweeting "Jesus had 12 followers, @Pontifex has over 300K. Won't be surprised if his first hashtag is #Winning."

The Vatican has taken precautions to ensure the account is not hacked into and the tweets will only come from one computer.

The 85-year-old German pope is a published theologian under his name Joseph Ratzinger and has just completed a trilogy about the life of Jesus Christ -- drafts of which he wrote by hand before they were typed up by aides.

Famous for speeches laden with dense theological references, some followers have questioned whether he can condense the world of God into 140 characters.

Lombardi said Benedict will not be using the medium to serve up answers to all life's questions, but his words can be used as examples to guide believers.

"Sometimes the answers we look for may not come from him personally, but we can find them in the Church," he said in an interview with Vatican Radio.

The tradition-bound Vatican has embarked on an ambitious digital agenda including the launch last year of the news.va information portal, as the Catholic Church tries to reach out to a younger global audience.

The Vatican is also launching a smartphone app called "The Pope App" that will allow users to follow papal masses and events in real time, as well as being able to look inside off-bounds parts of the Vatican using webcams.

“ … Spirituality (Religions)

Number one: Spirituality. The systems of spiritual design on your planet are starting to change. This is not telling you that certain ones are going to go away. They're simply going to change. Some of the largest spiritual systems, which you would call organized religion on the planet, are shifting. They're going to shift away from that which is authority on the outside to authority on the inside. It will eventually be a different way of worship, slowly changing the rules while keeping the basic doctrine the same.

The doctrine of the Christ has always been to find the God inside. The teachings were clear. The examples of the miracles were given as an example of what humans could do, not to set a man up for worship as a God. So when that has been absorbed, the teaching of the Christ can remain the teaching of the Christ. It simply changes the interpretation. …”
