What happens when a Space Shuttle guidance system engineer reverse engineers the brain?


Site Posted 10/11/16 updated 4/2/17



Did you know that you have a three axis gyro and accelerometer behind each ear? This organ, called the Vestibule, is similar to the sensor used in all military guidance and navigation including the Space Shuttle. I would know this because I was one of the engineers who "wired up" the Space Shuttle  (see HAINS or 7075736514) navigation system back in 1990 while working at Kearfott Guidance and Navigation in Wayne, NJ. My department was responsible for the electrical wiring of the circuit cards, motherboard and wiring harness which, by the way, is a tedious and time consuming task. One wrong connection and the system doesn't function. I later invented the first computerized thermal test for motherboards and wiring harnesses to improve the reliability of guidance systems used in nuclear missiles. Years later, I was promoted to supervisor of all computer aided design and engineering for the entire company. After President Clinton cut the defense budget, I left Kearfott to start my own software company and have been writing code for over 25 years. As you can see, I am highly trained in electronics design and programming. So imagine my thoughts when I first read about the vestibule and discovered its function in our brain. The vestibule provides linear and rotational accelerometer output, in three dimensions, (see How it works) to a processing system in our cerebellum to control our balance and stabilize our vision (see Vestibulocerebellum). Plus, it works to keep our eyes focused on a target while running (see Vestibulo-ocular reflex) and even to provide navigational data (see Inertial Navigation System Pinpointed) to track our movement through space. Whoa! As a guidance system engineer, I was blown away. vestibuleThe vestibule in our brain is the same sensor we used to guide missiles because it measures the linear and rotational acceleration in the X, Y and Z axis which is required to calculate distance traveled in 3D space. That's six degrees of freedom tracked by one tiny organ. From an engineering perspective, there is no way that this technology could have formed and wired itself. It was at that moment that I gave up my trust in "science" and started my own research to wire up all the vestibular circuitry. I found hundreds of neuroscience papers available online which trace the connections from the vestibule to other regions of the brain. For someone not trained in circuit card design, these connections may be difficult to understand; for me however, this is what I was trained to do. As a guidance system engineer I was so overwhelmed by the complexity ("engineering") of the vestibular circuitry, that I spent the next six years of my life wiring up all the key circuits of the brain.  I soon realized that someone who studies fossils or even a neuroscientist or doctor, would have no idea how a guidance system works or how the neurons and synapses in our brain work like the transistors and logic gates in our microprocessors.  When it comes to the technology in our brain, scientists have no idea what they are looking at or even how brain circuits work to process all this information.  In their own words they say "it's a mystery". 

“One of the greatest mysteries in cognitive science is the human ability to recognize visually-presented objects with high accuracy and lightening speed.” -The lateral occipital complex and its role in object recognition -Kalanit Grill-Spector MIT

So let me explain what a guidance system engineer has discovered through all this research, in a way that someone who is non technical can actually understand. Keep in mind that I am not affiliated with any scientific organization or religion and am not interested in making money from this. I have been completely humbled by all this research and feel a great responsibility to share what I have learned with all of mankind; To be a light for those who have been blinded by false teachers; like I was.

How Brain Circuits Process Data

A human brain contains over 80 billion neurons.  Neurons work like little batteries, building up charges by moving ions through a membrane. A connection between two neurons is called a synapse.  A synapse allows one neuron to pass a signal to another neuron much like a transistor allows electricity to pass from one side of a circuit to another. Essentially it works like a switch, it turns the circuit on or off. So what can electrical engineers do with trillions of switches?

"Materials scientists at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) have now created a new type of transistor that mimics the behavior of a synapse. The novel device simultaneously modulates the flow of information in a circuit and physically adapts to changing signals."  - (301) 537-5782 Harvard University 2013.

Well, if you wire a few transistor switches together you can make something called a logic gate. Logic gates let computers make very simple decisions and if you connect many gates together they can perform calculations (See how computers add numbers).  So if you wire a few neurons together you can also create a logic gate. Now we can see how brain circuits, if wired correctly, can work like our microprocessors using synapses and neurons, instead of transistors and logic gates. Using this logic we can now easily estimate the processing power of the human cerebral cortex of the brain.

The Cerebral cortex of our brain is the 2-4mm thick outer layer that makes all the folds. We see it as a skin or a shell covering the brain but it is the cortex itself that contains all the neuron cell bodies. There is an estimated 20 billion neurons in the human cerebral cortex, that make about 60 trillion synaptic connections. The Cerebellum, an area that stores and controls your synchronized motor skills and habits, contains most of the remaining 60 billion neurons.

“One cubic millimeter of cerebral cortex contains roughly 50,000 neurons, each of which establishes approximately 6,000 synapses with neighboring cells creating over 300 million interconnections" - Harvard University

From an engineering standpoint, the cerebral cortex is a six layer circuit card packed with transistors and logic gates at a density greater than five times our most compact microprocessor (the Apple A8). Then it's intelligently folded up to fit in a smaller space while also reducing the length of interconnecting axons. The minimum estimated processing power of the cerebral cortex (based on synapses equal transistors) exceeds 34,500 Intel Quad Core i7 processors while in actuality it could even be much higher.

“Brain circuits process information through specialized neuronal subclasses interacting within a network. Revealing their interplay requires activating specific cells while monitoring others in a functioning circuit." pg1 “we have shown the computational impact of different forms of inhibition on sensory processing.” pg 2 Division and Subtraction by Distinct Cortical Inhibitory Networks in Vivo - Massachusetts Institute of Technology

When I first became aware of all the circuitry in the cortex and how the brain was actually processing live data from our senses, I was frightened that this level of intelligence existed in the universe. I became so consumed by this research that I almost lost my small company that I have run for over 25 years. Now, after six years of researching thousands of neuroscience articles (see 450-331-4064), I have put together possibly the world's most advanced brain maps (see The Brain) that shows the incredible organization of technology in our brain and how it works. Below is just a small section of the large brain schematic I created, where each wired connection you see actually represents thousands to millions of parallel axon fibers. These wired connections are referred to as "white matter" by Neuroscientists. Engineers would call them the "wiring harness or mother board".

brain map

However the real engineering technology is within each colored box or processing region. These regions (Neuroscientists call "grey matter") are part of the cortex and contain all the processing neurons and axons (referred to as inter-neurons) which are wired at a density of over five times our most compact microprocessor. Each region is like a custom microprocessor and contains billions of wired circuits (up to 300 million per mm3) that are actively processing the inputs received from other regions. Signals come in from the axons of other regions starting with our senses, are processed based on its internal circuitry which is unique to each area, then output is sent to the next processing region shown by the direction of the arrows. For example, region 45b in the schematic above is a cortical area called the 801-903-5365 FEF which controls our visual attention. With all those inputs and outputs to different regions and even outputs to the cerebellum for motor control, there is definitely a highly engineered circuit that processes all those signals.  This system controls your eye muscles to keep the fovea fixed on a moving object in your visual field that has your attention.  It works hand in hand with the intraparietal sulcus (IPS) areas LIP (also know as the Parietal Eye Field or PEF) and MIP which are part of the dorsal visual stream, to help guide your limbs accurately to an object in your visual field, through coordinated and trained movements controlled by your cerebellum (for example catching or hitting a ball). By watching the movement of a pitcher's arm the batter's eye sends data to area MT (middle temporal) which uses the cerebellum to calculate the velocity and direction the eye needs to move to track the ball, giving the eye a head start to track the moving object. This eye reflex is called "smooth pursuit" and the circuitry to process it is highly engineered as you can see from this diagram.

"Vestibulo-ocular reflex is controlled by the floccular lobe; saccadic eye movements are controlled by the oculomotor vermis and ansiform lobule, while control of smooth pursuit involves all these cerebellar visuomotor regions" 972-940-9710.

Think of each box on the diagram as a microprocessor that's more advanced than all the electronics used in the space shuttle navigation system I worked on 25 years ago. Now you may be thinking that 25 years ago our understanding of electronic circuits was limited compared to today, however just the opposite is true. Today we have fast processors and high speed memory so our guidance systems are programmed mainly with software which allows for easy updates and far less circuit card design. The electronic systems built 25 years ago were massive hardware systems and the programming was done with electrical circuits and very little software. The brain is a hardware based system, it is not software based. There are far too many circuits in the cortex for neuroscientist to break down and wire. Trying to analyze the circuitry in just 1 mm3 of the cortex is much more difficult than trying to reverse engineer a microprocessor, it's that advanced. Someone not trained in electronic circuit card design would hardly appreciate the intelligence they see. The point to point wiring of these circuits are to electronic design as the software code is to an app. It has to be wired precisely in order for it to function. While we may not have the technology today to reverse engineer these circuits,  we can recognize how the system works by analyzing the information that is being processed in each region of the cortex.  Using MRI scans we can identify the regions of the brain that are actively processing information when a subject is experiencing a sensory input, for instance, looking at happy or sad human faces.  Neuroscientists have been analyzing this information and mapping the white matter connections by MRI and through the dissection of animal brains and deceased human brains, so it is now possible to reverse engineer how the brain actually works without having to wire the entire connectome. This is the research I have been actively pursuing. By understanding how the brain processes sensory input, it is very possible that we can change our response to stimuli, heal ourselves emotionally, change our habits and keep our minds in a more peaceful, healthy state, without the need for chemicals or surgery.  I'm not talking about just coping or having to always hold oneself back from anger, hunger, anxiety, worry, depression, addictions, etc. What I am talking about here is a complete change in the mind's self reacting function, its emotional reflex.  There is a neuroscience term for this (see Relearning extinction).  I already see it working and this is what I hope to teach through all this research. Believe me this is the knowledge that we are all thirsty for, it will be worth your time to continue reading and besides, it's free.

Reverse Engineering the Brain: from Vision to Emotion to Health
After six years of wiring up most of the circuits in the brain I have programmed myself to understand the flow of information and how it effects our emotion and ultimately our health;  and I now understand the steps required to reprogram it. The key to all it arises from a human's large prefrontal cortex that allows them to modify their good/bad beliefs network; something that animals cannot do. However this network matures later in life, up to age 25 and older in some, and therefore leads many young adults into risky behavior. This network can be programmed with different beliefs that create different reward patterns with different health outcomes; which we will talk about in later chapters. First let's start by looking at the visual processing system, which is the most advanced of all the senses. The visual processing system is comprised of 4-6 billion neurons giving the visual processing system more processing power than 200 Apple A8 processors.  Vision starts in the eye where light passes through the cornea, aqueous humor, pupil, lens, vitreous humor, then projects upside down on the retina which contains over 125 million rod and 7 million color cone photoreceptors. Light activates the (937) 389-2755 causing them to fire, sending signals through a very sophisticated motion sensing circuit in the retina (512-508-2004), to the "only" one million output axons in the retina that make up the optic nerve. I say "only" because the input of over 130 million photoreceptors signals gets compressed down to only one million output signals right in the retina of the eye. The way this works is due to a processing circuit in the retina that is so advanced there isn't enough manpower to map it.5416380329.  Within the circuitry in the eye is a multi layer motion processing system that detects the direction of movement of objects in our peripheral vision. Signals processed by 125 million rod photoreceptors detect objects in our peripheral vision coming into our path and relay coordinates through the optic nerve, not to the visual cortex where we see but rather to a region called the superior colliculus (SC). The SC has direct control of our eye muscles and moves the fovea (area of sharp vision) of the eye to the exact spot where the motion is detected so we can recognize a potential danger (example: a ball bouncing into the street while driving). A second motion layer in the retina detects objects in our peripheral vision that are getting larger rapidly, this layer fires the SC which also has direct connections to a spinal tract to control our limbs to make avoidance movements (example: ball coming at you). This highly sophisticated electronic circuit is what gives us our visual reflexes. The rest of the output from the eye contains signals from our 6 million color cones and travels down the optic nerve to the optic chiasm,  where the left side and right side of each eye cross, then flow along the optic tract and connect to the one million neurons in the lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) of the thalamus, where they are then wired to the calcarine fissure of the occipital lobe (back of the head) through over five hundred thousand optic radiations, and there, in the calcarine fissure is where you actually see, and not one pixel is out of place. This region is referred to as V1 of the visual system and from there the vision is split to two processing systems. The Dorsal Stream goes upward to the Parietal Lobe where our vision is used to coordinate the movement of the limbs, for instance picking something up. The Ventral Stream processes across the Occipital Lobe into the Temporal Lobe and this visual stream is used to identify what you see, like faces, facial expressions, objects, even naked body parts (yes it's true) and sends these images to higher processing areas for detection. The Temporal Lobe is strictly an identification area, there is no reward or emotion associated with recognition at this point. As the types of objects are filtered, for instant, the system detects a face, that part of the image is forward to both the superior temporal sulcus (STS) where facial expressions are read, and the fusiform face area (FFA) where the face is identified (if it's previously etched in memory). Recognition occurs if the object or face matches the pattern stored in the Perirhinal cortex (PRC) where it then passes that input forward to the Orbital Frontal Cortex (OFC) (front of head) through a white matter pathway called the uncinate fasciculus to process the stored emotional and reward value for that person or object. That signal is then passed forward through other areas like the amygdala to eventually arrive at the Hypothalamus, the body's control center, where it can modify your hormones (via the pituitary), digestion, hunger, heart rate, sexual behavior, and more.

Nudity Processing System

There is a nudity processing region in the occipito-temporal lobe that fires the insular, the extended amygdala, (BST) and then the medial preoptic area (MPOA) of the hypothalamus to initiate male sexual behavior.  The BST and MPOA are sexually dimorphic meaning that they are different in males vs females (twice as big in males).

Here we used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to show that the amygdala and hypothalamus are more strongly activated in men than in women when viewing identical sexual stimuli. -Men and women differ in amygdala response to visual sexual stimuli

In males, neuroscience experiments show that nude or partially nude images of female body parts, are the most highly reactive areas of recognition and increase as clothing decreases.

Moreover, the N170 amplitude increased linearly as the amount of clothing decreased from full clothing via swimsuits to nude bodies. Strikingly, the N170 response to nude bodies was even greater than that to faces, and the N170 amplitude to bodies was independent of whether the face of the bodies was visible or not -276-632-9245

These images process automatically through the brain circuitry of men to the MPOA which activates the paraventricular nucleus of hypothalamus (PVN) to release a neurotransmitter called 6148405930 into the cerbrospinal fluid (CSF) and into the blood system via the Pituitary.  When oxytocin was injected into the spinal column of rats, erection occurs (see studyA studyB).  CFS is flushed and renewed every 6 hours.  So, based on existing research, the way a woman dresses can trigger an awareness in both men and woman (higher in men) but can also produce physiological changes in men that can last up to 6 hours. If a man wants to prevent the reaction, he must look the other way because the effect has been shown to not be dependent on current task goals. This understanding can finally explain how men can be stimulated simply by the way a woman dresses, which could hours later lead to the desire to engage in a sexual act, view pornography or even commit a sexual assault. 

"We conclude that nude human bodies have a privileged status in the visual processing system due to the affective arousal they trigger" -Additive effects of affective arousal and top-down attention on the event-related brain responses to human bodies

Facial Expression Processing System

What is interesting about the facial expression detection network in the STS is that it subconsciously fires our reward, punishment, and emotional processing circuits based on the perception of happy, sad, surprise, fear, anger and disgusted faces. Because of this network, we can be unconsciously programmed to want or even despise something that others are experiencing. Based on the look of someone's face our brain can release dopamine from the Ventral Tegmental Area (VTA) which wires in a "want" reward value for that object.  It all depends on whether or not your trust circuit (see) is activated, which is required for learning. Negative rewards are wired through the habenula and rostromedial tegmental nucleus (RMT) based on negative experience or even viewing someone else's expression during punishment, like watching a sibling getting spanked. ((323) 963-0263).  The RMT turns off the VTA to eliminate the "wanting" feeling.  Do you understand how highly engineered these circuits are? It would take someone with my level of training or someone who designs integrated circuits to understand it. Not an evolutionary biologist, scientist or doctor, what could they possibly know about electronics design.

"Reverse-engineering the connectivity and function in a neural network made of 50 different component types (Retina) is a daunting challenge. The task would be more plausible if each of the neuron types had a part number stamped on it, much as one finds for components in a radio." -Eye Smarter than Scientists Believed: Neural Computations in the Circuits of the Retina 2009 Plank Institute, Harvard University

All these recognition circuits are located in the same areas of the brain in all humans and if there is damage to say, the fusiform face area, the ability to recognize people by their face is lost.

"the very fact that the FFA lands in roughly the same location across subjects, along with its predominant lateralization to the right hemisphere, suggests some constraints on its development. Second, neuropsychological patients who selectively lose face-recognition abilities as a result of focal brain damage are rarely, if ever, able to relearn this ability, suggesting that the remaining visual cortex (which is adequate for visual recognition of non-face objects) cannot be trained on face recognition in adulthood"   -The fusiform face area: a cortical region specialized for the perception of faces -2006 Nancy Kanwisher and Galit Yovel

From an engineering perspective, because our emotion and reward circuits are wired to our Amygdala (AMY) then to our Hypothalamus and our Locus coeruleus (LC) the stress center of the brain, it is probable that we don't need any prescription drugs to heal, but simply a change in the way we think and react. We've all heard of the placebo effect and research has shown that optimistic people live longer. (see: Optimists live longer and healther lives) The reason drugs work in the first place is because they activate or deactivate the chemical networks already in place in our body. Our hormones are a type of wireless messenger network between our brain and our cells that's called the endocrine system. Your Hypothalamus, which controls your pituitary gland, is more than capable of producing all the chemicals (hormones and neurotransmitters) you need, but can also produce too much or too little leading to stress, anxiety, inflammation, cancer, reproductive disorders and poor health.

"Negative emotions and anxiety result in the up-regulation of serum interleukin (IL)-6, which in turn further activates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis and enhances the release of catecholamines and glucocorticoids" - Serum correlates of the placebo effect in Irritable Bowel Syndrome

By mapping the brain we can see how our behavior and the behavior of others, can control our endocrine system. By changing the way we think and react we can change our health, without the need for any prescription drugs. We can now understand how important it is to lay the proper foundation of emotional circuitry in our children during their development years, and how changes in society can lead to an increase of behavior disorders including ADHD and even Autism. You don't simply feed a child and watch them grow like a plant. Circuits are being wired up to record the emotional responses to stimuli, with each new experience. Every new recognizable object becomes wired up to trigger a lasting emotional response, which in some experiences can lead to lifelong phobias. All children go through critical growth periods that can lead to serious emotional development issues lasting into adulthood and beyond. This is why raising children in a safe, nurturing environment is so important and more and more couples are being forced to use day care (see Experience and the Developing PFC ).  In February 2012, the German weekly publication Der Spiegel reported in its cover story that Dr Leon Eisenberg (many consider "the father of ADHD") spoke of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in his final interview, seven months before his death, that ADHD was the prime example of a "fabricated disease".

“ADHD is a prime example of a fabricated disorder,” Eisenberg said. “The genetic predisposition to ADHD is completely overrated.” Instead, child psychiatrists should more thoroughly determine the psychosocial reasons that can lead to behavioral problems, Eisenberg said. Are there fights with parents, are there are problems in the family? Such questions are important, but they take a lot of time, Eisenberg said, adding with a sigh: “Prescribe a pill for it very quickly.”  - published in German in Der Spiegel magazine in 2012 (see Snopes and (409) 203-5171)

Leon Eisenberg wrote a ‘mini-autobiography’ called "acushla" where he suggested that a switch from 'mind' to 'body' has taken place in psychiatry as a discipline, which led to overuse of medication. He also argued that, while medical scientists were worrying about the tedious science at the base of medical practice and healthcare decisions for the general public, "money" and monied interests had been making de facto decisions for the populace about how things that affected them deeply were going to be done.

While academic psychiatrists sought evidence in clinic and laboratory for health-related decisions, the 'monetarization of medicine' overruled science and made large de facto decisions for the profession. -Were We Asleep at the Switch?, Leon Eisenberg

Is Evolution Dead?

All this research proves that Darwin was right about one thing, no not that 34,500 microprocessors can evolve and wire themselves without instructions, that is an absurd thing to believe, especially if one knows anything about engineering. This is why Darwin called it a "theory" in the first place. He was awaiting future evidence that never materialized in favor of his theory, and quite the contrary, the new evidence has crushed it. But Darwin also wrote about a system of universal facial expression in his book "(715) 585-2331"(1872). This facial expression system has been proven to be true and thus confirmed by research that it's an integral part of the design of the brain and the sense of emotion. See, our brain has a microprocessing area in the superior temporal sulcus (STS) that processes the facial expressions we see (see (215) 458-4118) and a processing area in the amygdala that activates the facial expression muscles connected to our facial nerve that display how we feel (see 4695534024 and Amygdalo-motor pathway and the control of facial expressions).  As a design engineer and programmer it's easy for me to see that these two processing systems had to be designed to work together, along with all the muscles and wiring necessary to control them. One without the other would provide no benefit from these extra muscles in our face that are only used to produce facial expressions.

“The human face is an engineering marvel. Underneath our skin, a large number of muscles allow us to produce many configurations" -A Model of the Preception of Facial Expressions of Emotion by Humans

With the help of our cell phone cameras we can see how multiple faces can be recognized and tagged in an image and used for special processing, which in the case of the camera is for focusing. However the brain has a similar system that not only can detect faces but can also detect every type of object that we can recognize. Otherwise we couldn't recognize it. Now try to imagine the amount of "live" image processing that's going on with your vision. Once a face in found in our visual field, that data is extracted and forwarded to the superior temporal sulcus ((818) 620-3390) to extract the emotion. We see this system in place when we smile at a newborn child. It's already wired up and running at birth so the child can begin recording it's emotional memories. Now think awhile about this, with one processor our cell phone can backup all our pictures, video and data to the cloud without any wires? What is your brain capable of backing up with over 34,500 processors. (That's another story we'll get to later)

"Visual object recognition is essential for most everyday tasks, including reading, navigation, and face identification. In a small fraction of a second (approximately 150 ms), we can recognize complex shapes and categorize objects and scenes" How cortical neurons help us see: visual recognition in the human brain, -Julie Blumberg and Gabriel Kreiman 2010

Neuroscientists may spend their entire life studying just one region of the brain, never quite understanding how all these systems works together, and Darwin didn't even understand the technology the brain uses to process these emotions; he couldn't because the transistor had not been discovered yet and nobody knew how to use electrical switches to perform calculations. Even today, most Neuroscientists still have no idea how data is actually processed in the brain. After all this is hi-tech engineering we are seeing. For the brain to process a facial expression it must extract a clip of vision, scan it to find faces in the image, then send that data to the STS to analyze the facial expression and also to the FFA to recognize who it is. Do you understand the engineering involved here? Now, all the instructions to wire up this facial expression microprocessor must be stored somewhere in order to build all these advanced circuits, we're talking billions of connections just in the STS. The wiring connection schematic between transistors are what allow circuits to perform their mathematical functions, just as the lines of software code allow an app to control the microprocessor and perform it's function. You can't wire up a system this advanced without instructions as it would defy the laws of engineering. Remember, we are talking about over 34,500 unique microprocessors with billions of connections in each and that's just in the cortex.  So where is all this wiring data stored in order to assemble a newborn child?  Well it absolutely has to be in the DNA code.  According to science, all that is known about our DNA are the instructions for building proteins from amino acids which is only 4% of the entire code. Building proteins from a code is an incredible engineering feat in itself as these chains of amino acid (some up to 25,000 long) fold up by the laws of atomic attraction to form mechanical parts (7576531451). This, however, does not answer the question of "Where are the instructions needed to wire 80 billion neurons?" or "Where are the instructions to assemble all these proteins together to form a working body?" So according to the Laws of Design Engineering, all science has given us so far is a "parts list" for making proteins. The muscle systems in our body are also very complex and require two or more muscles to function since muscles only contract. (how muscles contract) Each muscle pair must be attached to opposite sides of a joint so the contraction of one muscle stretches the other. Then there needs to be electronics in the spinal column to control these muscles so the firing of one motor neuron inhibits the other. There also needs to be connections in the Cerebellum to track the movement of each muscle pair.  Do you realize how highly engineered this muscle control system is? Where are the assembly instructions to build it?  So even if scientists claim that it took millions of years of natural selection to evolve, where is the assembly code that is required to build and wire this "evolved" system of electronics with the processing power of over 34,500 i7 quad core processors? Where is the assembly code to build your bone structure, muscle systems, joints, ligaments, tendons, arteries, etc?

After doing some DNA research (see DNA) I was amazed to discover that DNA is now being used to store electronic data like programs, pictures and PDF files. A Harvard Scientist estimated the storage capacity of DNA to be 455 Billion Gigabytes per gram. From that I was able to calculate the storage capacity of one cell of DNA to be over three gigabytes. With all this storage capacity, it was easy to see that the 96% of the DNA that science conveniently calls "junk" has to contain all the wiring and assembly code.

Understanding how the brain actually works, how the instructions to wire up 80 billion neurons can be stored in our DNA, and seeing all of this organized circuitry was a very humbling experience for this engineer. Ironically I also began reading the Bible around the same time. Actually, there were many things going on in my personal life at that time and the signs that led me to all this research were a miracle in itself (see "The Story" when I finish writing it), but it was my oldest son who came home one day with a Bible in his hand while dating a girl who was "born-again". He asked me to help him and when I started reading the Bible, I realized that the advice it contained was matching the design of the brain I was reverse engineering. I can imagine that I am the first man to ever read scripture while understanding how the brain actually works. Now all this may sound crazy and just a few years ago I probably would have agreed, but after six year of brain research, seeing all this organization and complexity and understanding, as an engineer and programmer, the basics of how it works, I realized that it's crazy to believe anything could evolve on its own. It's crazy to believe that even one cubic millimeter, that I now know contains over 300 million connections, could even evolve. Evolution is utter nonsense, how could I, an engineer who built guidance systems, have been fooled into believing this without even doing some research? I became so disappointed in myself and the things I had been teaching my family and all the suffering it had caused in our home. 

So now, in light of all this research, do you still believe that all of this circuitry can wire itself? If I tell you that this system is hundreds of thousands of times the complexity of the space shuttle navigation system would you still believe it?  Even if I tell you that it would take me an entire lifetime just to wire up one eye. Yet a child can be wired and born in only 9 months on its own. Do you really still believe that all these circuits can be wired up by chance, without any wiring instructions?   Watch a leading evolutionary biologist deceiving viewers by explaining how the eye could evolve, ignoring all the complexity of the eye circuits (billions of connections) which he must know about and instead trying to convince us that the eye works like a pinhole camera without any electronics. (see eye evolution deception).

Here are some of my favorite Bible verses that touch on this very topic.

Isaiah 44:24-25
I am the Lord, the Maker of all things, who stretches out the heavens, who spreads out the earth by myself, who foils the signs of false prophets and makes fools of diviners, who overthrows the learning of the wise and turns it into nonsense.

And that what evolution is, utter nonsense, complete deception.  Acting like one is intelligent so others will feel foolish by doubting them.  I have to admit, they deceived me for a long time but now they have become the fools.

Romans 1:20-22
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools"

Engineering the Truth

Now with our new understanding of the brain, let's begin our journey for truth, by opening up our mind: literally.   Can this new understanding of the brain finally prove that the Bible is really the word of God?

Luke 24:45
Then he opened their minds so they could understand the Scriptures.

If the Bible is inspired by God, and there is only one book, there why are there so many different religions.  Can our new understanding of the Brain answer these important questions and guide us finally to the truth found in scripture?  Could it be possible that, by understanding the circuitry of the brain, we can finally see how the human spirit is formed and how scripture works in the mind?

Zechariah 12:1
The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: “I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling."

I have wired up circuits that form the human spirit and now understand the basics of how it works. It's the most incredibly high-tech system of electronics I have ever witnessed.  But does this prove that the Bible really was inspired by God?  The first question had before I could trust the Bible was: "How could the ancient men have known so much about the brain and the laws that lead to a prosperous and peaceful society?"  Well, this one Bible verse really opened my eyes.

Numbers 7:89
"When Moses entered the tent of meeting to speak with the LORD, he heard the voice speaking to him from between the two cherubim above the atonement cover on the ark of the covenant law. In this way the LORD spoke to him."

Really, Moses can hear a voice coming from a box back in 1400 BC? That sounds pretty high-tech to me. And this voice is telling Moses, and the priests after him, to write all these words in a book as a testament (witness) for future generations to see that all the suffering they have brought upon themselves and their children has come from their turning away and not following the Lord's advice, his Law.

Deuteronomy 31:24-27
After Moses finished writing in a book the words of this law (Torah) from beginning to end, he gave this command to the Levites who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord: “Take this Book of the Law and place it beside the ark of the covenant of the Lord your God. There it will remain as a witness against you. For I know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are.

As a Catholic, I never heard about the "book of law" only the Ten Commandments. The Ten Commandments were on the tablets placed inside the ark, but the book of law is placed beside the ark, so it could be read. I admit that I got nothing out of church to help me lead my family and now I am reading all this advice in scripture that I so greatly needed in my life and wondering why I didn't learn about this in church. This is the same Bible that my priest claims to follow, is it not?  In fact, America's first vice president and 2nd president John Adams, who had a law degree from Harvard, had this to say about the biblical law.

John Adams diary 1, 18 November 1755 - 29 August 1756  Feb 22nd
"Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited! What a Utopia; what a Paradise would this region be!

 So here we have a lawyer and writer of America's Declaration of Independence and Constitution telling us how perfect this law is.   Now after many years of Bible study it finally becomes clear that the stories of the Old Testament provide us with clear insight into the power that the moral law has to create peace and prosperity when followed, and division, death and destruction when ignored. You think John Adams would understand the law found in scripture and how it would lead a nation into peace. (see the section on "The Pilgrims" for all the Founding Fathers advice).

Now you may have heard it said in church that the New Testament replaces the Old Testament. Having read both, I now understand it completely different and see that the New Testament is based entirely on all the Old Testament laws, nothing has been added, nothing has been removed. The purpose of the New Testament is actually to clarify the Old. As a matter of fact, this is what Jesus said very plainly about the law.

Matthew 5:17-18
“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law (the Torah) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. So whoever sets aside any command that seems unimportant and teaches others to do the same will be unimportant in the kingdom of heaven. But whoever does and teaches what the commands say will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. I can guarantee that unless you live a life that has God’s approval and do it more faithfully than the experts in Moses’ Teachings (Torah) and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Wow! So here is Christ telling all Christians very plainly that they must be experts in Moses' Teachings and follow every command in the Torah law in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. So what is this law of Moses' Teachings? In Hebrew, the word for the the law given to Moses is called the Torah.

"Torah" means instruction and offers a way of life for those who follow it .  In Christianity, they use the word "Pentateuch" which means first five books of the Old Testament. When you read the Bible, the translators use the word "law" in place of the Hebrew "Torah", so don't think that the word "law" means simply "rules" but rather "a way of life" for example:

Hebrews 10:16 / Jeremiah 31:33 (ESV)
“This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my laws on their hearts, and write them on their minds,”

Hebrews 10:16 / Jeremiah 31:33 (Orthodox Jewish Bible)
"This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days," says the L-rd, "I will put my Torah in the mind of them and I will inscribe it on their heart".

And what is interesting, based on the brain research, is that we store our values and laws in our PreFrontal Cortex, an area which develops later in life and matures in your mid twenties. So through the brain research, we see very clearly that we are all born sinners, because we don't have the brain function to store our moral laws. But a time will come, after your brain fully develops, when you can overcome the power of sin, the "wanting feeling" that activates your VTA to produce dopamine. You can train your brain to do this, but only if you know the law. As Paul says in Romans:

Romans 7:7
I would not have known what sin was had it not been for the law. For I would not have known what coveting really was if the law had not said, “You shall not covet.”

So according to Christ and Paul, the New Testament tells us that understanding this law ("Moses’ Teachings" or Torah ) is very important, yet I haven't heard a mention of it at church.  Instead we hear only about Christ and how the Jews killed him.  This teaching only leads to division and separation of people which the law strictly forbids.

Leviticus 19:18
Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord.

And so we see how important the Law was to Christ, that he even knew the greatest commandments in the Law?

Matthew 22:35-39
One of them, an expert in the law, tested him with this question: “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment.And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.

The truth is that this Law is what the Bible is all about, in fact Christ knew the Law so well that it was in his heart, so he became a light for others.

John 1:14
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,

You may be surprised to know that the Founding Fathers of American fled England so that they can read the Bible, follow these laws and teach them to their children.  Reading the Bible was unlawful and punishible by death back in England.   Here is a quote from Benjamin Franklin's parents that he speaks about in his autobiography.

From The Life of Benjamin Franklin (254) 275-1072
In Oueen Mary s days, either his wife, or my grand mother, by father s side, informed my father that they kept their Bible fastened under the top of a joint-stool, that they might turn up the book and read in the Bible, that when anybody came to the dore they turned up the stool for fear of the aparitor, for if it were discovered they would be in hazard of their lives.

Now in this biblical message Moses tells the priests, as well as the parents, that all children must hear the law, yet I went to church for fifty years and never heard of any law except for the Ten Commandments.  Yet Christ tells us (see above) that the most important two laws, to love the Lord and to love your neighbor as yourself,  are not even in the Ten Commandments but rather the book of Leviticus, chapter 19 along with dozen's of other laws.  (see "The Law" for a full listing)

Deuteronomy 31:10-13 Old Testament
Then Moses commanded them: “At the end of every seven years, in the year for canceling debts, during the Festival of Tabernacles, when all Israel comes to appear before the Lord your God at the place he will choose, you shall read this law before them in their hearing. Assemble the people—men, women and children, and the foreigners residing in your towns—so they can listen and learn to fear the Lord your God and follow carefully all the words of this law. Their children, who do not know this law, must hear it and learn to fear the Lord your God as long as you live."

The brain research shows the power fear has, through the amygdala, to control our behavior. We tell our children not to drink and drive or take drugs by making them afraid of the consequences; not through love but through fear will our brain protect us. But many religions say that we shouldn't fear the Lord, taking away our children's protection. While reading the Ten Commandments in the actual Bible, I discovered what I believe is one of the most important laws in the Bible. This is a warning that every parent should know (and fear) because of how it effects their children and grandchildren. A warning that was "etched in stone" tablets, so it could not be changed.

Exodus 20:4-6
“You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below. You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.

Wondering why I haven't heard this before? I did some research and discovered that the Catholic Church omits this piece of scripture from their version of the Ten Commandments.

This serious omission of scripture, part of the first commandment and words that I feel every parent needs to read, seems very irresponsible coming from those we are supposed to trust. It teaches us that the mistakes we make as parents can scar our children and even our grandchildren. For instance, if you commit adultery, might your children fear that the same fate may happen in their marriage? If you quarrel and fight with your spouse, might your children dread having a spouse that treats them the same way? The design of the brain shows us that the look on your face is communicated subconsciously to your children as a reward, no reward, disgust, or even punishment. Could this perceived punishment become wired into their brain and even prevent them from the desire to marry. Knowing how the brain works, I believe it absolutely can. In my opinion, this scripture doesn't mean that our God will punish innocent children, it means that their own parents do, by not following the very laws that were designed to protect them. So why did my religion remove this warning from the Commandments? After reading through the Bible several times, I couldn't find anything that said to take those words away. On the contrary, I found this warning.

Deuteronomy 4:1-2 Now, Israel, hear the decrees and laws I am about to teach you. Follow them so that you may live and may go in and take possession of the land the Lord, the God of your ancestors, is giving you. Do not add to what I command you and do not subtract from it, but keep the commands of the Lord your God that I give you.

So I gave up my trust in "priests" (not to be confused with pastors who teach from the Bible) as I did with "science" and began studying the scripture with the same level of detail as I did the brain.

Since there is only one Bible with one law, how can this one book lead to the formation of thousands of different religions? Is it not because of their lack of understanding? So if people simply call themselves Christians, but their behavior demonstrates that they don't understand the Bible, then are they really Christians?

Matthew 7:21-23
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’

So Christ warns us that many will call themselves Christians, yet they don't follow the will of his Father, his law. They want to divide and control people by inventing a new doctrine, an easy one, that doesn't depend on any laws and allows its followers to essentially make their own religion.

Galatians 2:4-5
False Christians were brought in. They slipped in as spies to learn about the freedom Christ Jesus gives us. They hoped to find a way to control us. But we did not give in to them for a moment, so that the truth of the Good News would always be yours.

Deuteronomy 12:8
Never worship in the way that it’s being done here today, where everyone does whatever he considers right.

You may be asking yourself, how do I know that this Bible and law are really the word of God?  How did Moses and the prophets know what to write? Well the more I studied about the Ark of the Covenant and the blueprint Moses was given to build it, the more I started to see, from an engineering perspective, how communication through this box could actually work. There were special instructions required to operate it and if not followed resulted in death by a high voltage arc or by cancerous tumors. Now all this understanding is coming together and I can see how humans, without being forewarned, can make life changing mistakes and even be controlled by those who understand the mind. Advertisers are now paying neuroscientists to measure the programmability of their commercials by using electrodes and brain scans to find out which brain regions are firing while watching their commercials. Apple recently purchased a company that specializes in facial expression research (see Apple mood ad targeting patent). This abuse of technology is leading to a life of fighting, of coveting, over eating, and of stress for some, while making others rich in the process.

I now understand the power scripture has to "open the eyes of the blind" and to heal with this knowledge. So what do I do now, do I sell it, or even write a book? I guess the Lord (the real engineer) has won me over because I have decided to give it all away for free.

Isaiah 52:3
For this is what the Lord says: “You were sold for nothing, and without money you will be redeemed.”

Even the prophet Daniel was not interested in profits.

Daniel 5:15-17
Now if you can read the writing and make known to me its interpretation, you shall be clothed with purple and have a chain of gold around your neck and shall be the third ruler in the kingdom.” Then Daniel answered and said before the king, “Let your gifts be for yourself, and give your rewards to another. Nevertheless, I will read the writing to the king and make known to him the interpretation.

See I have so much trust in everything I have learned that I have even flown to Utah,  to Zion National Park to post this website, including the law, from there on the eve of Atonement Day in the hope that it could lead to the peace promised in Isaiah Chapter 2:

Isaiah 2:3-4
The law will go out from Zion, the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and will settle disputes for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not take up sword against nation, nor will they train for war anymore.

As the sun set at Zion, under the light of a super moon,  I prayed from the Book of Nehemiah, Chapter 1.

Nehemiah 1:5-7
Then I said: “Lord, the God of heaven, the great and awesome God, who keeps his covenant of love with those who love him and keep his commandments, let your ear be attentive and your eyes open to hear the prayer your servant is praying before you day and night for your servants, the people of Israel. I confess the sins we Israelites, including myself and my father’s family, have committed against you. We have acted very wickedly toward you. We have not obeyed the commands, decrees and laws you gave your servant Moses.

  This was the same prayer that John and Abigail Adams would pray when the battles leading to the Revolutionary War began.

Letter from Abigail Adams to John Adams, 25 June 1775
We live in continual Expectation of Hostilities. Scarcely a day that does not produce some, but like Good Nehemiah having made our prayer with God, and set the people with their Swords, their Spears and their bows we will say unto them, Be not affraid of them. Remember the Lord who is great and terible, and fight for your Breathren, your sons and your daughters, your wives and your houses.

Understanding this biblical influence on Adams and the people who fought for America's independence leads us directly to the ideology that inspired the Declaration of Independence which we will discuss later.  A few weeks after my trip to Zion,  Donald Trump shocked the world and was elected president.  I am very convinced that, through all this research and understanding how the Law works in the mind, that the reason there is so much cancer, divorce, bitterness, division, suicide, depression, obesity, addictions, anxiety, sleeping disorders, etc, costing billions of dollars in medical expenses, is not because there is no god like many non-believers say. On the contrary, it's because we don't follow his laws, which he gave us for our own sake and the sake of our children. We are now trusting in the world view, the view forced upon us by the rich, and are wearing ourselves out and even our children, for the sake of our pride. The rich and the media are tempting us into sin, spreading bitterness, luring the young and naive into debt, taking away their love and families, forcing them to work 10 hour days, forcing them to raise their children in daycare, allowing hate to be taught on college campuses, dividing people into groups primarily to control and profit from them. No wonder our health care cost have gone up so much in the last 20 years.  So I promised the Lord that I would do all this work to open the eyes of the those who are being oppressed, so that they may finally see the cause of it.

Jeremiah 9:13
The Lord said, “It is because they have forsaken my law, which I set before them; They have not obeyed me or followed my law. Instead, they have followed the stubbornness of their hearts; as their ancestors taught them.”

So what is this Law and what happens if we don't follow it? What is the Bible really suppose to teach us?

Deuteronomy 31:16-18
And the Lord said to Moses: “You are going to rest with your ancestors (die), and these people will soon prostitute themselves to the foreign gods of the land they are entering (by follow the ways of the people). They will forsake me and break the covenant I made with them. And in that day I will become angry with them and forsake them; I will hide my face from them, and they will be destroyed. Many disasters and calamities will come on them, and in that day they will ask, ‘Have not these disasters come on us because our God is not with us?’ And I will certainly hide my face in that day because of all their wickedness in turning to other gods.

  The Bible warns us about the spreading of bitterness in a nation, which separates people into groups and divides a nation against itself. In the chapter called The Law, we will see how, by using the facial expression network, bitterness is subconsciously spread from generation to generation. This bitterness leads to discrimination, fighting and even war and can change the course of one's whole life. Some groups like the media profit through the popularity of bad news and bitterness; colleges profit by spreading bitterness, convincing students they need costly advanced degrees because their marriages will fail, and even priests have been known to spread bitterness for the purpose of recruiting more followers. Today one in four women over the age of fifty are on anti-depressants so advanced degrees are not leading women to happier lives.

Matthew 12:25
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand.

So join me on a journey through scripture as we use the design of the brain as our guide. Now that we know we are high-tech, there must an understanding that will show us how the Torah Law works in the mind.  The understanding that might finally bring all our religions together and finally lead to a world of peace. An understanding that might even make this scripture come true.

Zechariah 12:9-10 “And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.

The spirit of supplication is this..

Jeremiah 3:21
A voice is heard on the barren hills —the weeping and supplication of the children of Israel— because they perverted their way and forgot Adonai (the Lord) their God.

Age of Understanding

This new understanding of the design of the brain will finally lead us past the "Age of Reason" or "Age of Enlightenment" which began in the 16th century when scientists rebelled against the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, which, at the time prevented (by death) all citizens from reading the Bible. This age led to the enlightenment found from reading of the Bible, which led to the protestant movement, which led to Pilgrims coming to America, which led to the Declaration of Independence, which led to the forming of a new government, a government based on biblical laws and faith in God, but independent of individual religious ideologies. 

The most amazing understanding, in the history of America, is that the word INDEPENDENT was actually removed from the Declaration of Independence before it was signed.

The declaration we call the Declaration of Independence (from the laws of Great Britain) is really The Declaration of Dependence, a binding to one another by the laws of God. The dissolving of political bands and the assuming of Godly bands.  Let's read the declaration again.  Here is first the final version.

The Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

— We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions

— And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

Thomas Jefferson was asked by Adams to write the first draft because Adams felt that Jefferson was a better writer.  Jefferson's draft (which did not mention the Creator) and John Adams in his own handwriting made his own copy to review and another copy went to Benjamin Franklin.

Draft 1: by Thomas Jefferson  "We hold these truths to be sacred & undeniable; that all men are created equal & independant, that from that equal creation they derive rights inherent & inalienable, among which are the preservation of life, & liberty, & the pursuit of happiness;  "

Final Draft: Inspired by Adams & Franklin and approved by Congress.  We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

The most important aspect of this declaration, that lead to "the pursuit of Happiness" is that men and women are not independant of one another, but rather dependent through the moral laws of God.  It seems we assumed (supposed without proof) when we really should have assumed (take on).

as·sume [əˈso͞om]
VERB
1.suppose to be the case, without proof:
synonyms: presume · suppose · take it (as given) · take for granted · take as read
2.take or take on, begin to have (power or responsibility):
synonyms: accept · shoulder · bear · undertake · take on/up · manage · handle ·

In our search for happiness, how can one be happy if other citizens plan to harm you or your children; if the adulterer seeks to destroy your marriage, if you are lured ( of forced) into debt or sinful living, if you are repeatly forced to work long hours because others are willing to do it and take your job, if your job is outsourced to foreigners due to corporate greed, if you are deceived by someone you trusted and lose your wealth, if someone embitters you and destroys your ability to love, if pride causes you to pressure your own children for the sake of vain rewards (sports, degrees, high paying jobs); if your politicians take bribes which lead to higher taxes, outsourcing of jobs, mandated insurance premimums, higher student debt; if schools are teaching your children that there is no God; if your priest hides the Lord's moral law from your family. States can be independent, governments can be independent, but the happiness of people that live in these states is dependent on the interpretation of the moral law of its citizens. When morals drop, people become greedy, they oppress one another, embitter one another, mock one another, decieve one another. Oppression sets in, greed takes over, and the cost to regulate this sinful behavior will cause governments to grow which increases taxes which decreases happiness. History has shown that the greedy and the rich are not able to buy their own happiness, but their lack of understanding blinds them into thinking it can.

Ecclesiastes 4:4
Then I saw that all toil and all skill in work come from a man's envy of his neighbor. This also is vanity and a chasing after wind.

So the question is, who was smart enough to say that our rights to happiness and liberty come from our Creator and what actually are those rights? Well, I have spent much time reading the letters from John and Abigail Adams' diary and I see, what I believe is their influence in this final edit. Here are some of Adams notes. By understanding the thinking of John Adams at the time, one can finally interpret true meaning.

John Adams diary, 8/1/1761
"A Man who can read will find in his Bible rules and observations that will enlarge his range of thought, and enable him the better to judge who has and who has not that Integrity of Heart, and that Compass of Knowledge and Understanding, which form the Statesman."

That "compass" former President Adams speaks about, is what we today call our navigation system: our direction. So the Bible according to Adams is the book of Knowledge and Understanding that forms the moral character of the citizens who are united as "Americans". How did the government let this understanding fade from our history books? How can people be united under God's law if we don't teach God's laws to our children? Without God's law the Declaration of Independence is null and void. How can we have a Constitution with laws that were added that contradict the biblical law? How can we have judges that render decisions that don't even know God's law? I have studied the Bible in great detail and see that God's law is perfect for uniting people and creating happiness in society. John Adams was a great leader to preserve this understanding for us.  Here is some of his thoughts about the knowledge found in scripture and how it would be suitable to the basis of America's civil laws.

John Adams diary, 4188630720
July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more.

John Adams diary 1, 18 November 1755 - 29 August 1756 Day 3/2/1756
The great and almighty Author of nature, who at first established those rules which regulate the World,

John Adams diary 1, 18 November 1755 - 29 August 1756
For G. [God] governs his great Kingdom the World by very general Laws.

No Priest nor Pope has any Right to say what I shall believe, and I will not believe one Word they say, if I think it is not founded in Reason and in Revelation. Now how can I judge what My Bible justifies unless I can read my Bible.

John Adams diary 1, 18 November 1755 - 29 August 1756  Feb 22nd
Suppose a nation in some distant Region, should take the Bible for their only law Book, and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. Every member would be obliged in Concience to temperance and frugality and industry, to justice and kindness and Charity towards his fellow men, and to Piety and Love, and reverence towards almighty God. In this Commonwealth, no man would impair his health by Gluttony, drunkenness, or Lust-no man would sacrifice his most precious time to cards, or any other trifling and mean amusement-no man would steal or lie or any way defraud his neighbour, but would live in peace and good will with all men-no man would blaspheme his maker or prophane his Worship, but a rational and manly, a sincere and unaffected Piety and devotion, would reign in all hearts. What a Eutopa, what a Paradise would this region be.

The problem dividing America now is that by removing GOD from the equation, we have nothing to be bounded by.  Without God's Law there is now chaos and disorder and people can't agree on what is right and what is wrong.

John Jay
"No human society has ever been able to maintain both order and freedom, both cohesiveness and liberty apart from the moral precepts of the Christian Religion. Should our Republic ever forget this fundamental precept of governance, we will then, be surely doomed."

This is what happens when we are united by politics and no longer by God's Laws.

Micah 7:3
"The ruler demands gifts,the judge accepts bribes, the powerful dictate what they desire, they all conspire together"

Hosea 4:6
my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. “Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children"

So our way back to our "united" state of being is first by rejecting the lies and bitterness spread by those whom we once held in high esteem.  Evolution is dead, you have a guidance system in your head.  The "age of reason" has proved to be, well un-reasonable.

Isaiah 9:14-16
So the Lord will cut off from Israel both head and tail, both palm branch and reed in a single day; the elders and honored man (scientists) are the head, the prophets who teach lies are the tail (priests). Those who guide this people mislead them, and those who are guided are led astray

Next we need to restore our faith in God's Law, the law that once united us . This will make us wise to be able to recognize the bitterness (evil) in the people who are guiding us. Then the fighting will dissapear and we won't need any more antidepressants. Marriage and family will return, parents will stop fighting and children won't need anymore ADHD medication. Health care costs will be cut in half so young families can afford it. The very fact that one in four women over fifty, needs antidepressants in today's society teaches us that modern laws are not leading to happiness.  Our eyes have now been opened and it's not a pretty picture on how far we have faded from our Founding Father's guidance.  George Washington once said.

George Washington, January 9, 1790
"The establishment of our new Government seemed to be the last great experiment for promoting human happiness."

Washington's Inaugural address of 1789
"the propitious smiles of Heaven, can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right, which Heaven itself has ordained: And since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty, and the destiny of the Republican model of Government, are justly considered as deeply, perhaps as finally staked, on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people."

And for over two hundred years the experiment, could the biblical law lead to happiness, produced its fruit. America rose to be the greatest and richest nation on earth."

Donald Trump's Inaugural Address Jan 20, 2017
The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.” - Psalm 133:1

I have wired up the brain and understand how the law works for all people (see The Law), so I am confident this verse is true.

Psalm 19:7
The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.

The Age of Understanding will open up our minds so that even the simple (like I once was), will become wise. There will be no more bitterness; it's destroying our health, our happiness and our lives. We have lost our way back to the truth found in the biblical law. Religions and evolution have corrupted the moral law that once united the nation and now, just as John Adams predicted, the values of society have been reversed.

Warning from John Adams

John Adams diary 15, August 1770
The Government of the Supreme and alperfect Mind, over all his intellectual Creation, is by proportioning Rewards to Piety and Virtue, and Punishments to Disobedience and Vice. Virtue, by the Constitution of Nature carries in general its own Reward, and Vice its own Punishment, even in this World. But as many Exceptions to this Rule, take Place upon Earth, the Joys of Heaven are prepared, and the Horrors of Hell in a future State to render the moral Government of the Universe, perfect and compleat. Human Government is more or less perfect, as it approaches nearer or diverges farther from an Imitation of this perfect Plan of divine and moral Government. In Times of Simplicity and Innocence, Ability and Integrity will be the principal  Recommendations to the public Service, and the sole Title to those Honours and Emoluments, which are in the Power of the Public to bestow. But when Elegance, Luxury and Effeminacy begin to be established, these Rewards will begin to be distributed to Vanity and folly. But when a Government becomes totally corrupted, the system of God Almighty in the Government of the World and the Rules of all good Government upon Earth will be reversed, and Virtue, Integrity and Ability will become the Objects of the Malice, Hatred and Revenge of the Men in Power, and folly, Vice, and Villany will be cherished and supported. In such Times you will see a Governor of a Province, for unwearied Industry in his Endeavours to ruin and destroy the People, whose Welfare he was under every moral obligation to study and promote, knighted and enobled. You will see a Philanthrop, for propagating as many Lies and Slanders against his Country as ever fell from the Pen of a sychophant, rewarded with the Places of Solicitor General, Attorney general, Advocate General, and Judge of Admiralty, with Six Thousands a Year. You will see 17 Rescinders, Wretches, without Sense or Sentiment, rewarded with Commissions to bejustices of Peace, Justices of Peace the Common Pleas and presently justices of the Kings Bench. The Consequence of this will be that the Iron Rod of Power will be stretched out.

Is anybody listening?  Does anybody know what the Iron Rod of Power is? That is what you will learn about reading the rest of this site.   It's time to remove the obstacles out of our way and return to the way of the Lord, to a life of happiness, love and family. (see The Way)

Isaiah 57:14
And it will be said: “Build up, build up, prepare the road! Remove the obstacles out of the way of my people.”

For Example,  look at the bitterness that divided Abraham's household in the Old Testament. Abraham was the father of both Isaac (whose descendents became the Israelites) and Ishmael (whose descendents became the Muslims). And because Abraham listened to his wife (remember Adam's sin) and sent Ishmael away with no inheritance, this created a lasting bitterness that has spread from generation to generation. Imagine how you would feel if your own father did this to you. To this day the Israelites and the Muslims are still fighting. But the Lord promised Abraham that he would watch over Ishmael:

Genesis 17:20
And as for Ishmael, I have heard you: I will surely bless him; I will make him fruitful and will greatly increase his numbers. He will be the father of twelve rulers, and I will make him into a great nation.

Isaac also had two sons Esau and Jacob and the same thing happened where Jacob received all the inheritance and a feud broke out again over money. Then Esau's children hated Jacob's children. Many believe Esau's descendents became the Palestinians. It's easy to see how bitterness can last for generations and separate people. Racism is a bitterness that spreads and now feminism is a bitterness that spreads. By our facial expressions and mirror neurons we spread bitterness from generation to generation. Our brain wires up the reward value based on the facial expressions of others, this spreads bitterness if we are not aware of it. Now, we can stop that trend because we know how it works in our brain.

Hebrews 12:15
See to it that no one falls short of the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.

See, it really doesn't matter who our leaders are or what country you are from or the religion you claim to follow, there is one Creator with one moral law. It's just generations of bitterness that separates us and the media and even our religions are good at spreading this and turning us against one another. World peace starts with people believing in the good found in one law, it starts with our families, then spreads to our communities, states, countries and eventually to the entire human race.  As Adams writes in his diary, the lines of this poem that provide us with an important clue to our history.

John Adams diary 15, 30 January 1768
Self Love but serves the virtuous Mind to wake as the small Pebble stirs the Peacefull Lake, The Center Moved, a Circle straight succeeds, another still and still another spreads. Friend, Parent,Neighbour, first it does embrace, our Country next and next all human Race.

This very interesting text entry from John Adams diary can be traced to a poem from The Harvard Classics. I read this poem and was surprized to find this passage in the same poem. The missing link to understanding our Forefather's thinking when writing the Declaration of Independence.

1909–14. Epistle IV—Of the Nature and State of Man with Respect to Happiness. Alexander Pope (1688–1744)  line 330-335
Yet poor with fortune, and with learning blind, The bad must miss, the good, untaught, will find;  Slave to no sect, who takes no private road, But looks through nature up to nature’s God: Pursues that chain which links th’ immense design, Joins heav’n and earth, and mortal and divine; Sees, that no being any bliss can know, But touches some above, and some below; Learns, from this union of the rising whole, The first, last purpose of the human soul; And knows where faith, law, morals, all began, All end, in love of God, and love of man.

Wow!  here is the likely source of the words Nature's God from the Declaration of Independence.  This book The Harvard Classics was well read among the Founding Fathers.  So it's time to put all this UNDERSTANDING into action.  John Adams knew that the  the Iron Rod of Power would eventually be stretched out against America, so he left us a light to guide us backWhat a wise and understanding leader.  No wonder the Lord granted him a long life of 90 yrs.  We can all make a difference if we just humble ourselves, repent our bitterness, our greed and our pride all of which we got from our ancestors, and show thanks to our creator by simply observing his law and teaching it to our children. According to scripture, the Lord judges us as individuals and by our following of his law. You don't have to change your religion to do this; there are many branches that lead back to the root. That root is the Lord's moral law.

Amos 2:4
The people of Judah have rejected the Lord’s Teachings and haven’t kept his laws. They have been led astray by false teachings, the same ones their ancestors followed.

Romans 2:12-13
All who sin apart from the law will also perish apart from the law, and all who sin under the law will be judged by the law. For it is not those who hear the law who are righteous in God’s sight, but it is those who obey the law who will be declared righteous.

John 5:3-4 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments. And his commandments are not burdensome. For everyone who has been born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.

The Pebble has been thrown, it's time to stop the waves and bring back the peace.

So join me and use this wisdom and understanding to create a better world for our children, a world where love, family, and humility are greater than money, greed and pride. A world that puts its posterity (all future generations) first like our forefathers did. A world without bitterness, and coveting that leads us into debt (a form of slavery). A world that knows and follows the Lord's Law (see The Law), the real "inspired" word of God. I can promise you that anyone who hears The Lord's moral law, if they are not already following it, will eagerly accept his law over what they now follow. I've learned, after a great deal of suffering, that this law creates the peace in our homes, it renews our marriages, earns back our respect, protects our children, promotes strong family values, and leads us back to good health and happiness while, at the same time, expanding the size of a nation.

So let's not let our religion deceive us or divide us any longer. Bring this teaching to your Bible study.

There is only one Earth, one Creator and one set of Laws that lead to peace! Imagine the world peace, the utopia as John Adams writes,  we could all share if we could just humble ourselves and agree to follow that one book of Law! The law that our forefathers trusted in, the Law that made America great among the nations.  After all, everything that is alive on Earth is just made from dust,  a collection of amino acids wired together by an intelligence far greater than an human can comprehend. Why let pride and greed destroy us like it has destroyed many kingdoms before us.  The next four chapters will guide you in the understanding of this Law, the leaders who followed it, and the nations that rose up because of it.

Genesis 18:18 "Abraham will surely become a great and powerful nation, and all nations on earth will be blessed through him."

Daniel 5:18-20
The Most High God gave Nebuchadnezzar kingship and greatness and glory and majesty. And because of the greatness that he gave him, all peoples, nations, and languages trembled and feared before him. Whom he would, he killed, and whom he would, he kept alive; whom he would, he raised up, and whom he would, he humbled. But when his heart was lifted up and his spirit was hardened so that he dealt proudly, he was brought down from his kingly throne, and his glory was taken from him.

Psalm 40:8
"I desire to do your will, my God; your law is within my heart.”

Deuteronomy 10:16
Circumcise your hearts, therefore, and do not be stiff-necked any longer.

May this work bring peace and good health to you, your family and even your country.

Enjoy the research! -Adon

Leviticus 19:18
‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself.
I am the Lord.
