“I have always been convinced that the only way to get artificial intelligence to work is to do the computation in a way similar to the human brain. That is the goal I have been pursuing. We are making progress, though we still have lots to learn about how the brain actually works.” - Geoffrey Hinton, from 20 Great Quotes on AI, Psychology Today

    Passing test after test, one thing researchers discovered was that Peter's ability could be amplified with the use of a Faraday Cage.
- It has been some time since I heard about Benjamin Crème. Now deceased, the mission of the organization he founded, Share International, continues. I interviewed Julian Crème, his son, and the Chief Editor of Share International Magazine, Felicity Eliot. A refresher on Benjamin Crème - in this brief video.

For more pictures of the star. Link. From the Share International site:

January 14, 2010 - "Benjamin Creme announced that Maitreya had given his first interview, on American television, and that millions had heard him speak both on television and the internet. Mr Creme explained: “He was introduced not as Maitreya, the World Teacher and Head of our Spiritual Hierarchy, but simply as a man, one of us."
Includes Benjamin's account
of his 40-year collaboration with
a Master of Wisdom.

The mystery remains. His identity and the name he used is undisclosed. Benjamin Crème addresses the subject and says it is up to the viewer to recognize the individual regardless of his name.

When it comes to classification in regard to religion, he insists the only label that applies is 'The Teacher'. Video.

In our interview, Julian offered the recap of how his father started the
organization in 1974. Felicity joined in 1976. We have very little time to explore more of the history of the organization and details about how Benjamin connected with the group of Masters. But the foundation is laid and we plan to reconnect later in the year.

Benjamin Crème was also an artist. In current terms, he experienced what could be referred to as a Spiritually Transformative Experience in 1959, being contacted by one he considered as a Master of Wisdom: Reference Alice Bailey/Wiki. Additional information and definition: STE.

"Creme's books on the reappearance of the Christ have been translated into seven languages and are published throughout the world by groups responding to his message. He was also founding editor of Share International, a monthly magazine that focuses on the political, economic, social and spiritual changes now occurring globally." Bio.

The book Felicity recommended during our interview is Gathering in the Forces of Light. Available via Share International.

As mentioned in the above video, more details on the Space Brothers, their goal and the purpose of Crop Circles. According to Benjamin, "They do this in order to make the foundation on the physical plane for a new type of energy, a new type of technology using that energy, which eventually will be developed on this planet." Source. Fascinating.

*Footnote - One of the memorable visions that happened along with my STE in 1997, I had an image (1998) appear above me in the sky, a man dressed in robes indigo/lavender. I could not see the facial features but there was a telepathic message: "Christ walks among you. Can you see him?" I assumed it was a message to be conscious of the presence of the Christ light in every human - and that image and message was also part of my subsequent encounter later that year at the Church of Saint Francis in Taos. The Shadow of the Cross painting glows in the dark. Link. And I have seen it shift to become holographic and present a message. A story for another time. Mysteries and wonders. Everywhere.
