15 Quotes on Enlightened Business Practices from Steve Jobs’ Guru

Kyle McMillan, GuestAccording to The Business Insider, Steve Jobs only downloaded one book, ever, to his iPad 2: Autobiography of a Yogi, by Paramahansa Yogananda. To those in the know, this should come as no surprise, as it was also his parting gift to all of the attendees at his funeral — the last gesture he made towards everyone closest to him on earth. Jobs’ spirituality was not widely well-known during his life, and while many will contest that certain busi [...]

The Future of Technology in 2015?




Excerpt from
cnet.com


The year gone by brought us more robots, worries about artificial intelligence, and difficult lessons on space travel. The big question: where's it all taking us?

Every year, we capture a little bit more of the future -- and yet the future insists on staying ever out of reach.
Consider space travel. Humans have been traveling beyond the atmosphere for more than 50 years now -- but aside from a few overnights on the moon four decades ago, we have yet to venture beyond low Earth orbit.
Or robots. They help build our cars and clean our kitchen floors, but no one would mistake a Kuka or a Roomba for the replicants in "Blade Runner." Siri, Cortana and Alexa, meanwhile, are bringing some personality to the gadgets in our pockets and our houses. Still, that's a long way from HAL or that lad David from the movie "A.I. Artificial Intelligence."
Self-driving cars? Still in low gear, and carrying some bureaucratic baggage that prevents them from ditching certain technology of yesteryear, like steering wheels.
And even when these sci-fi things arrive, will we embrace them? A Pew study earlier this year found that Americans are decidedly undecided. Among the poll respondents, 48 percent said they would like to take a ride in a driverless car, but 50 percent would not. And only 3 percent said they would like to own one.
"Despite their general optimism about the long-term impact of technological change," Aaron Smith of the Pew Research Center wrote in the report, "Americans express significant reservations about some of these potentially short-term developments" such as US airspace being opened to personal drones, robot caregivers for the elderly or wearable or implantable computing devices that would feed them information.
Let's take a look at how much of the future we grasped in 2014 and what we could gain in 2015.

Space travel: 'Space flight is hard'

In 2014, earthlings scored an unprecedented achievement in space exploration when the European Space Agency landed a spacecraft on a speeding comet, with the potential to learn more about the origins of life. No, Bruce Willis wasn't aboard. Nobody was. But when the 220-pound Philae lander, carried to its destination by the Rosetta orbiter, touched down on comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko on November 12, some 300 million miles from Earth, the celebration was well-earned.
A shadow quickly fell on the jubilation, however. Philae could not stick its first landing, bouncing into a darker corner of the comet where its solar panels would not receive enough sunlight to charge the lander's batteries. After two days and just a handful of initial readings sent home, it shut down. For good? Backers have allowed for a ray of hope as the comet passes closer to the sun in 2015. "I think within the team there is no doubt that [Philae] will wake up," lead lander scientist Jean-Pierre Bibring said in December. "And the question is OK, in what shape? My suspicion is we'll be in good shape."
The trip for NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has been much longer: 3 billion miles, all the way to Pluto and the edge of the solar system. Almost nine years after it left Earth, New Horizons in early December came out of hibernation to begin its mission: to explore "a new class of planets we've never seen, in a place we've never been before," said project scientist Hal Weaver. In January, it will begin taking photos and readings of Pluto, and by mid-July, when it swoops closest to Pluto, it will have sent back detailed information about the dwarf planet and its moon, en route to even deeper space.


Also in December, NASA made a first test spaceflight of its Orion capsule on a quick morning jaunt out and back, to just over 3,600 miles above Earth (or approximately 15 times higher than the International Space Station). The distance was trivial compared to those those traveled by Rosetta and New Horizons, and crewed missions won't begin till 2021, but the ambitions are great -- in the 2030s, Orion is expected to carry humans to Mars.
In late March 2015, two humans will head to the ISS to take up residence for a full year, in what would be a record sleepover in orbit. "If a mission to Mars is going to take a three-year round trip," said NASA astronaut Scott Kelly, who will be joined in the effort by Russia's Mikhail Kornienko, "we need to know better how our body and our physiology performs over durations longer than what we've previously on the space station investigated, which is six months."
There were more sobering moments, too, in 2014. In October, Virgin Galactic's sleek, experimental SpaceShipTwo, designed to carry deep-pocketed tourists into space, crashed in the Mojave Desert during a test flight, killing one test pilot and injuring the other. Virgin founder Richard Branson had hoped his vessel would make its first commercial flight by the end of this year or in early 2015, and what comes next remains to be seen. Branson, though, expressed optimism: "Space flight is hard -- but worth it," he said in a blog post shortly after the crash, and in a press conference, he vowed "We'll learn from this, and move forward together." Virgin Galactic could begin testing its next spaceship as soon as early 2015.
The crash of SpaceShipTwo came just a few days after the explosion of an Orbital Sciences rocket lofting an unmanned spacecraft with supplies bound for the International Space Station. And in July, Elon Musk's SpaceX had suffered the loss of one of its Falcon 9 rockets during a test flight. Musk intoned, via Twitter, that "rockets are tricky..."
Still, it was on the whole a good year for SpaceX. In May, it unveiled its first manned spacecraft, the Dragon V2, intended for trips to and from the space station, and in September, it won a $2.6 billion contract from NASA to become one of the first private companies (the other being Boeing) to ferry astronauts to the ISS, beginning as early as 2017. Oh, and SpaceX also has plans to launch microsatellites to establish low-cost Internet service around the globe, saying in November to expect an announcement about that in two to three months -- that is, early in 2015.
One more thing to watch for next year: another launch of the super-secret X-37B space place to do whatever it does during its marathon trips into orbit. The third spaceflight of an X-37B -- a robotic vehicle that, at 29 feet in length, looks like a miniature space shuttle -- ended in October after an astonishing 22 months circling the Earth, conducting "on-orbit experiments."

Self-driving cars: Asleep at what wheel?

Spacecraft aren't the only vehicles capable of autonomous travel -- increasingly, cars are, too. Automakers are toiling toward self-driving cars, and Elon Musk -- whose name comes up again and again when we talk about the near horizon for sci-fi tech -- says we're less than a decade away from capturing that aspect of the future. In October, speaking in his guise as founder of Tesla Motors, Musk said: "Like maybe five or six years from now I think we'll be able to achieve true autonomous driving where you could literally get in the car, go to sleep and wake up at your destination." (He also allowed that we should tack on a few years after that before government regulators give that technology their blessing.)
Prototype, unbound: Google's ride of the future, as it looks today Google
That comment came as Musk unveiled a new autopilot feature -- characterizing it as a sort of super cruise control, rather than actual autonomy -- for Tesla's existing line of electric cars. Every Model S manufactured since late September includes new sensor hardware to enable those autopilot capabilities (such as adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assistance and automated parking), to be followed by an over-the-air software update to enable those features.
Google has long been working on its own robo-cars, and until this year, that meant taking existing models -- a Prius here, a Lexus there -- and buckling on extraneous gear. Then in May, the tech titan took the wraps off a completely new prototype that it had built from scratch. (In December, it showed off the first fully functional prototype.) It looked rather like a cartoon car, but the real news was that there was no steering wheel, gas pedal or brake pedal -- no need for human controls when software and sensors are there to do the work.
Or not so fast. In August, California's Department of Motor Vehicles declared that Google's test vehicles will need those manual controls after all -- for safety's sake. The company agreed to comply with the state's rules, which went into effect in September, when it began testing the cars on private roads in October.
Regardless of who's making your future robo-car, the vehicle is going to have to be not just smart, but actually thoughtful. It's not enough for the car to know how far it is from nearby cars or what the road conditions are. The machine may well have to make no-win decisions, just as human drivers sometimes do in instantaneous, life-and-death emergencies. "The car is calculating a lot of consequences of its actions," Chris Gerdes, an associate professor of mechanical engineering, said at the Web Summit conference in Dublin, Ireland, in November. "Should it hit the person without a helmet? The larger car or the smaller car?"

Robots: Legging it out

So when do the robots finally become our overlords? Probably not in 2015, but there's sure to be more hand-wringing about both the machines and the artificial intelligence that could -- someday -- make them a match for homo sapiens. At the moment, the threat seems more mundane: when do we lose our jobs to a robot?
The inquisitive folks at Pew took that very topic to nearly 1,900 experts, including Vint Cerf, vice president at Google; Web guru Tim Bray; Justin Reich of Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society; and Jonathan Grudin, principal researcher at Microsoft. According to the resulting report, published in August, the group was almost evenly split -- 48 percent thought it likely that, by 2025, robots and digital agents will have displaced significant numbers of blue- and white-collar workers, perhaps even to the point of breakdowns in the social order, while 52 percent "have faith that human ingenuity will create new jobs, industries, and ways to make a living, just as it has been doing since the dawn of the Industrial Revolution."


Still, for all of the startling skills that robots have acquired so far, they're often not all there yet. Here's some of what we saw from the robot world in 2014:
Teamwork: Researchers at the École Polytechnique Fédérale De Lausanne in May showed off their "Roombots," cog-like robotic balls that can join forces to, say, help a table move across a room or change its height.
A sense of balance: We don't know if Boston Dynamics' humanoid Atlas is ready to trim bonsai trees, but it has learned this much from "The Karate Kid" (the original from the 1980s) -- it can stand on cinder blocks and hold its balance in a crane stance while moving its arms up and down.
Catlike jumps: MIT's cheetah-bot gets higher marks for locomotion. Fed a new algorithm, it can run across a lawn and bound like a cat. And quietly, too. "Our robot can be silent and as efficient as animals. The only things you hear are the feet hitting the ground," MIT's Sangbae Kim, a professor of mechanical engineering, told MIT News. "This is kind of a new paradigm where we're controlling force in a highly dynamic situation. Any legged robot should be able to do this in the future."
Sign language: Toshiba's humanoid Aiko Chihira communicated in Japanese sign language at the CEATEC show in October. Her rudimentary skills, limited for the moment to simple messages such as signed greetings, are expected to blossom by 2020 into areas such as speech synthesis and speech recognition.
Dance skills: Robotic pole dancers? Tobit Software brought a pair, controllable by an Android smartphone, to the Cebit trade show in Germany in March. More lifelike was the animatronic sculpture at a gallery in New York that same month -- but what was up with that witch mask?
Emotional ambition: Eventually, we'll all have humanoid companions -- at least, that's always been one school of thought on our robotic future. One early candidate for that honor could be Pepper, from Softbank and Aldebaran Robotics, which say the 4-foot-tall Pepper is the first robot to read emotions. This emo-bot is expected to go on sale in Japan in February.

Ray guns: Ship shape

Damn the photon torpedoes, and full speed ahead. That could be the motto for the US Navy, which in 2014 deployed a prototype laser weapon -- just one -- aboard a vessel in the Persian Gulf. Through some three months of testing, the device "locked on and destroyed the targets we designated with near-instantaneous lethality," Rear Adm. Matthew L. Klunder, chief of naval research, said in a statement. Those targets were rather modest -- small objects mounted aboard a speeding small boat, a diminutive Scan Eagle unmanned aerial vehicle, and so on -- but the point was made: the laser weapon, operated by a controller like those used for video games, held up well, even in adverse conditions.

Artificial intelligence: Danger, Will Robinson?

What happens when robots and other smart machines can not only do, but also think? Will they appreciate us for all our quirky human high and low points, and learn to live with us? Or do they take a hard look at a species that's run its course and either turn us into natural resources, "Matrix"-style, or rain down destruction?

When the machines take over, will they be packing laser weapons like this one the US Navy just tried out? John F. Williams/US Navy
As we look ahead to the reboot of the "Terminator" film franchise in 2015, we can't help but recall some of the dire thoughts about artificial intelligence from two people high in the tech pantheon, the very busy Musk and the theoretically inclined Stephen Hawking.
Musk himself more than once in 2014 invoked the likes of the "Terminator" movies and the "scary outcomes" that make them such thrilling popcorn fare. Except that he sees a potentially scary reality evolving. In an interview with CNBC in June, he spoke of his investment in AI-minded companies like Vicarious and Deep Mind, saying: "I like to just keep an eye on what's going on with artificial intelligence. I think there is potentially a dangerous outcome."
He has put his anxieties into some particularly colorful phrases. In August, for instance, Musk tweeted that AI is "potentially more dangerous than nukes." And in October, he said this at a symposium at MIT: "With artificial intelligence, we are summoning the demon. ... You know all those stories where there's the guy with the pentagram and the holy water and he's like... yeah, he's sure he can control the demon, [but] it doesn't work out."
Musk has a kindred spirit in Stephen Hawking. The physicist allowed in May that AI could be the "biggest event in human history," and not necessarily in a good way. A month later, he was telling John Oliver, on HBO's "Last Week Tonight," that "artificial intelligence could be a real danger in the not too distant future." How so? "It could design improvements to itself and outsmart us all."
But Google's Eric Schmidt, is having none of that pessimism. At a summit on innovation in December, the executive chairman of the far-thinking tech titan -- which in October teamed up with Oxford University to speed up research on artificial intelligence -- said that while our worries may be natural, "they're also misguided."

Bridges to Light

“You must dissolve the borders of your perceptions that more and more of what IS can come into your conscious knowing…” IRSHA

I am a channel, though perhaps an unlikely candidate to fulfill a role as mysterious as many seem to perceive it to be. For more than twenty years, I had a successful business career in sales and field management, including a number of years as Vice President with an international research firm (very left brain.) In addition to my business career, I played the roles of wife, mother, grandmother and single parent. In order to raise my three sons – now grown – I have, at different times, worked as a writer, seminar and conference leader, professional singer and fashion model. I have also appeared on radio and television.


Six years ago, Beings of very powerful energy began to broadcast through my body for verbal communication into the dimension of human life experience. It was explained to me to be a mutual agreement made many lifetimes ago in preparation for this most important time this NOW – for human kind. The purpose was described as a necessary re-interpretation of ageless wisdom for contemporary understanding and application. New models, new myths, and new metaphors have been transmitted to provide ways to apprehend the unknowable, the unnameable.

From a basis of beginning to sense and comprehend realities not experienced through the filter of our five senses, the choice can be made by each to release attachments to things, places, beliefs and people which inhibit the evolution of conciousness. Introduction: Elmarilla’s Story

My creed for many years has been: GOD/ GODDESS is – therefore I am – and all that is! Spirit is REAL, vital and at work in the Universe and in us. Life has meaning and each of us has purpose. My purpose is to fully realize/actualize my Self and to make my contribution. I cannot fully realize my Self without making my contribution, and I cannot make my true contribution without realizing my Self. I am responsible for my Self – not my parents, my upbringing, the environment, the government, or what I had for breakfast. In suffering the pain of my own mistakes and in forgiving myself for me, I can learn to love my Self and others unconditionally, and to grow, and to serve.

It is my choice to be actively involved in this process until the day of my death/transition, and beyond. This process I see as my odyssey.

My odyssey is very personal (as it is for each of us) and is travelled inwardly before the changes in direction in the outward journey manifest. In fact, the signposts – symbols – of the inner journey indicate those directions for my outward way.

I feel somewhat ill at ease in sharing some of them, since I am basically a private person, but chose a number of years ago to plunge into the “sea of life” and run the risk of drowning, rather than watch in safety from the shore. I had a powerful and beautiful dream about that very figure of speech. It is still vivid in my mind and gives me the courage to risk to be open – letting myself out and allowing others in.

My journey started in the Midwest – lowa – on a farm. My childhood could be perceived as mostly idyllic: climbing trees, jumping into the hay from the rafters in the hayloft, riding ponies, swimming in a creek, picking wildflowers in the woods. Various life traumas occurred: the usual childhood diseases, including rheumatic fever at age 12; our home burned with all possessions lost at ~ 3; suffered through adolescence; experienced my first loss of a loved one – my very dear Grandfather; accumulated the wounds of life that happen to us all and got sidetracked for a while onto the “conform; do your duty; don’t feel too much; play it safe” track. Now and then my Self would pop out as when in the seventh grade Methodist Sunday School class, the teacher passed out W.C.T.U. commitment cards for us to sign, stating that we would never “touch a drop.” I refused to sign on the grounds that although I didn’t drink then, I might want to try it some day. I was not popular in the class after that.

I went to college – studied art, music, psychology, teacher education; got married; gave birth to three fine sons and did everything that women of my generation were “supposed to do.” I never became angry – I did have stomach problems and heart palpitations. I was very very “nice” the perfect daughter, perfect mother, perfect wife, perfect ministers wife. My ex husband had gone to graduate school and then to seminary after we married. We were on the staff of various Methodist churches in Arkansas, New Orleans, Louisiana and Minneapolis, MN. for a number of years. I (my Sell] gradually began to emerge again and to question and to form my own beliefs about life in the Spirit and life in general.

My experience of the organized church was stifling. Operating within a structure which preached love but generated guilt and fear of failure to conform to the “shoulds” and “oughts” did not make sense to me. I could not comprehend a relationship between this kind of “Love” and the unconditional Love that it seemed to me was spoken of and demonstrated by Jesus and the other Masters.

Finally, after 19 years, my husband, the church and I parted company. It was a bitter experience which took some time to recover from. The shock and sorrow of suicide ended a brief second marriage with a mate who turned out to have a severe illness. I still love both men dearly and realize that I magnetized these situations into my life as necessary experiences for my preparation.

Irsha has given that, “… Grief has a sharpness to it like a wound from the thrust of a knife; sadness is personal with hard edges; but sorrow is attuned to the collective of human kind, so therefore is vast with soft borders and has within it the core of compassion and unconditional love.”

In the meantime, I raised my sons (all three today are genuinely caring, authentic, contributing human beings), I formed relationships (some brief – lives just touching in passing, but significantly so – and some lasting) with other honest, searching persons who accepted my eccentricities without judgment.

I embarked full steam upon a career in the business world that eventually led to a position as a vice president with a research firm in New York City. I took up the cause of women without becoming a flaming feminist by mentoring others and by example. In addition to my business career, I also worked at various times as a writer, seminar leader, professional singer and fashion model.

You may wonder how a so-called “career woman” involved with statistics and research suddenly became a channel for cosmic mind. My extra-curricular interests have expressed in the realm of spiritual/metaphysical studies for at least 20 years. However, the channeling started spontaneously six years ago with very little warning. I was ,guided to turn on my tape recorder and meditate. My consciousness stilled and upon coming to sometime later, discovered a lengthy teaching had been recorded. Since then, profound change has been my experience in life. I was directed to leave my career and my home – all that meant security to me, and for a Capricorn, that’s a “biggie” – and allow myself to be used as a channel for the reception and transmission of information and energy by unseen beings from another dimension. Those of you who come to experience or read about this kind of “unusual” event always bring a host of questions, especially if this is new for you. These are the ones most often asked:

Why do you do this?

Who is IRSHA, and where do they come from? How does it work?

How does it feel?

When did it begin? Where do you go? Could we be channels? How does this fit with Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, etc.?

Are you possessed, Crazy?

How do you know the information is true? How do we know the information is true? What is your background for this?

Here are the answers, and I hope that the reading of them will remove the mystique usually associated with channels and channelled information.

I do this because it gives me a sense of fulfillment of my purpose.

The process is relatively simple when it is understood that all that exists is of energy and that the human is an energy field living in an assortment of slowly moving molecules called a body. The energy field (Spirit) is part of All that Is. Our human consciousness doesn’t remember this, so we think ourselves separate. A leap of faith reestablishes the connection in conscious awareness – then it’s just a process of allowing oneself to be used. It’s literally becoming as a radio receiver and transmitter for other dimensional frequencies. The more refined and powerful the vibrational frequeny, the higher the consciousness being transmitted.

The Irsha energy flows into my body (circuits) at the back of my head through the occipital lobes into the pineal gland and then through my body like an electric current, but pulsating like radio waves. The frequencies are translated into words and broadcast through my mechanism.

It is a feeling of ecstacy – unconditional love – and very powerful. When channeling, it flows through my hands and into the room and is reported as being experienced similarly by those in the audience.

As channeling is occurring, my consciousness could best be described as in a timeless, spaceless condition. I do not usually have a sense of what is being said, so I always tape record for later listening.

If you are alive and here on Earth, you are channeling. Your body is a channel for your own life energy. It has been given that all who are opening will channel higher frequendes in this new time, each expressing according to his/her agreed upon life purpose (whether it be as teacher, healer, musician, artist, gardener, animal husband man, food preparer, poet, storyteller, and so forth) for your greater joy and the enhancement of your service.

How does this fit with the organized religions? The information given includes all – excludes none. Presently, our many different religious systems divide mankind rather than unite. Irsha’s teachings do not conflict with any except those notions in each that are divisive. Rather, Irsha reveals the thread of unity in the diverse and colorful tapestry of creation.

Am I possessed, Crazy? If so, it is with commitment and zeal; crazy about the beauty, wisdom and energy of Irsha. It rewards me continually.

How do I know it is true? Most of it has been, and continues to be, validated by events and circumstances in my own life and the lives of others, and it just “rings true” for me.

How do you know the information is true? You don’t, until in your experience it is supported by your own discoveries, or the teachings resonate with your own deepest knowing. Irsha says, “Don’t let your brains go soft – become your own Guru. Truth is truth and knowing of it is within each. If what we say is truth, it is that which you already know and the hearing of it simply calls it up into your own remembrance.”

What is my background for this? In my odyssey you discovered that my background is much like yours – adventurers in the unfolding drama of human life.
