That's right folks. I finally decided that I would make The EDM Hour available as a podcast. Episodes 001 through 004 were posted today, September 26, 2014. You'll see it as a new item on the menu to the left, but most importantly, it should be showing up on iTunes soon. Based on my experience with previous podcasts, it should take a day or two for it to show up on iTunes, so look for it this weekend and into next week. If you see it, drop me a line and give me a heads up! And let me know what's your favorite way of listening to the show! Thanks!

There are roughly 7.2 Billion people on Planet Earth today. If current trends continue, in slightly more than a year, they will all be dead.
1n 1980 a mysterious stone monument called was erected on public land in the State of Georgia. Known as The Georgia Guidestones, they set forth a number of commandments set forth in eight languages, and have been linked to the suppposed New World Order. The first commandment on the Georgia Guidestones is to keep the population of the planet below 500 Million.
Looking at the world today, there are several ways in which such a drastic population reduction could take place. We are already in the midst of the greatest mass extinction event in the history of the planet, with millions of dead fish now washing up on the oceans shores, and similar numbers of birds falling from the skies. We can speculate as to the reasons why, but the bottom line is that we are in the midst of an eco-collapse.
Another way could be through world war, as the United States is expanding its wars in the Middle East, and tensions with Russia over Ukraine continue to escalate. But neither of these are likely to hold a candle to Ebola.
In Ray Kurzweil’s book, The Singularity Is Near, the author explains that the human brain evolved to perceive linear progressions quite well, but is not particularly good at perceiving or comprehending the significance of exponential progressions.
This fact was illustrated in an ancient Indian legend, in which a king, who was a chess enthusiast, was in the habit of challenging visitors to a game of chess. He challenged a traveling sage to a game of chess but the sage was reluctant. To persuade the sage, the king offered him whatever reward he wanted if the sage won the game. The sage requested that a chessboard be filled with grains of rice, one on the first square, two on the second square, four on the third square, eight on the fourth square, 16 on the 5th square, and so on until the board was so filled on every square. The sage won the game and the king ordered a sack of rice be brought to him so he could make payment. However, he soon realized that he did not have enough rice. On the twentieth square he would have to place a million grains of rice. On the fortieth square he would have to place a billion grains of rice, and by the 64th square he would have to place more than 18 quintillion grains of rice. It turns out, however, that the traveling sage was Lord Krishna in disguise, and that he agreed that the King would not have to make the payment, at least not all at once. Thus, to this day offerings of rice are made annually in satisfaction of this gambling debt.
This week it was reported that the World Health Organization estimates that the number of ebola cases in West Africa could reach 21,000 by September 30, and that the number is doubling every 20 days.
The most alarming part of this story is not the number of cases, but the doubling rate. This is clearly an exponential progression, just like the one in the Indian legend - a fact the implications of which, if we are to believe Ray Kurzweil, are likely to go unrecognized by most people.
The WHO released projections based on this arithmetic only through January of 2015, at which point they state that the total number of cases will be 1.4 Million. My calculations indicate 1,344,000 cases by January 28, 2015. They probably stopped there because the full implications of this progression are much more frightening than a paltry 1.4 Million cases.
But first, I did some calculations to take the current numbers back in time and they correspond roughly with the numbers reported in the media over the last six months, except that the number of cases seems to have been consistently underreported. Nevertheless, the overall numbers support the reported trend, even if the dates are off slightly. My calculations indicate that the first case probably started around Christmas Eve, 2013, with the outbreak not being recognized until mid March, 2014 when the cases numbered about 20. By early April there were about 40 cases, and by Mid May about 164 cases. In July the number would have broken a thousand, and by August first it broke 2,500. This also means that by September 10 there were over 10,000 cases.
The executive summary is this: If the current trend continues, expect to see 1.37 Billion cases by August 16, 2015; 2.75 Billion Cases by September 5, 2015; and 5.5 Billion cases by September 25, 2015. In other words, within one year, most of the human population could be wiped off the face of the earth. And if you think that a year is plenty of time for western medicine to resolve this crisis, consider the fact that virtually no progress has been made abating this trend for the past nine months.
