Do you happen to know if dystopian future scenarios such as the digital blackout have been modified in any way with the recent reptilian brain evolution?✶ Or will more steps be required for this?
The reptilian infiltrators that the recent ceremony was aimed at, are not the ones intending digital control.† It's the next wave of infiltrators (AI) that I've mentioned.‡ We'll have to deal with those, if and when the time is right. But in the meantime, each day, also becoming self-sufficient by taking a step back from digital dependency, will help.§

Christina & Barbara: great questions & observations… followed by Ciara's great response as to what she has examined and devised as a go-forward plan for herself. She notes that people are in different situations, we often can't change things all at once, yet we can take whatever (small) steps to move us in our desired direction.
Also, if we can maintain an attitude of trust & faith combined with our actions, perhaps some "unknown or unknowable miracles" may manifest to assist us in future?

My whole work life is online and has been for many years. Still not sure how or what to create outside of it especially where I am. I wonder also as this is the case for Almine to a certain extent. How will she share information with us? We will not be able to order from the shop and the FA oils? This is a great source of income for her. I know it is serious and I ask Infinite constantly to show me what else I can do to sustain myself if I can no longer work online. I hope and pray we will be able to stop these infiltrators before it comes to this.

I have never much liked 'social media' and haven't looked at FB for years. Having enjoyed a few cat videos, also years ago on YouTube, I haven't been back. Politics bore me. Conspiracies equally so.
I have plenty of free classic lit downloaded from gutenberg.org, Some of which I read. And some worthwhile exchanges by email with friends and several-word textos with our grandson 🙃
However, don't let's kid ourselves.
There isn't one administative requirement that I can do by post or phone.
In my country of residence everything legal is done only online, with a daunting series of security codes to access, then finalise, these obligatory acts: forms, payments of various taxes, vehicle registration or sale, traffic infractions, business declarations of any sort, passports and residency renewal, even school lunch enrollment!
Banking is online only. Meaning if our accounts cannot be accessed, as we found when our server was 'upgrading' its regional towers, any transfer delay causes expense.
Any overdraft due to not transfering funds in time, would incurr penalties…and be potentially compounded.
There. Is. No. Way. Not…to be utterly bound and dependent on this vital aspect of the internet.
First month = fines, second month massive penalties and cancellation of obligatory insurances leading to further fines. Foreclosure results and, guess what? Bankruptcy can only be filed online, pending validation of security codes which have meanwhile expired.
Having a bit of cash in the empty cookie jar, an extra row of brussel sprouts in the garden and a basket of wrinkled windfalls hanging from a shaded rafter, overseen by a bonny wee mouser protecting the pantry…does not resolve the internet dependency. Nothing to do with 'addiction'. Or personal choice. Or prepping.

I've been exploring this too dear BK. I got rid of my smartphone at the end of last year (hallelujah!) but still have to keep it in a drawer to use for online banking and all the other stuff that it's totally impossible to do without it. Can't even make a payment online without it, because the payment has to be approved in an app – so in the reality the phone gets switched on multiple times per week. The way I'm viewing (and feeling) it though is that even having gotten rid of it for the most part is such a huge step, and I can feel the difference it's made to the fabric of life – so I believe that if we all do as much as we can these "baked into modern life" dependencies will ultimately go away as well.
The big thing for me right now is that I am currently dependant on the internet for my work since we live in the middle of nowhere and running my business without it isn't an option, and I need my work to have the funds to create a life where I ultimately won't need to any of this at all! It seems like a catch-22, but so does so much of this stuff… there is always a catch-22 type feeling when alchemical leveraging is needed I've noticed, and we're just doing this piece by piece. I'm careful to monitor my attitudes such that I recognise I'm using these things as a tool to ultimately free myself, and that feels balanced to me at the moment with minor tweaks to the way I'm holding it every few days to keep aligning with the new levels coming forth.
Thank you Almine, and Rogier for this update on the digital blackout.
