The "Unseen Realm": Getting to Know the Supernatural Power of the God of the Bible

The "Unseen Realm": Getting to Know the Supernatural Power of the God of the Bible

https://youtu.be/2QM7anD5vSI Watch the Movie here. Can we understand God without the Holy Spirit? No! So why do so many churches leave out the Holy Spirit when they talk about knowing God? God is supernatural, we are natural. We have to understand and worship him by the spirit within us. This is not mystical, it is what the Bible teaches. This episode discusses the documentary about Michael Heiser's book the Unseen Realm. Heiser articulates and answers many questions that Christians are afraid to ask about the Bible because they are told not to be too mystical.

My first attempt at a video podcast. I discuss various aspects of the current state of AI, including OpenAI ChatGPT, and the possible dangers of GAI in the future, from a non-expert's perspective. I wrongly stated that GAI is generalized AI, I meant GENERATIVE.

DARPA Brain Initiative ProgramDescriptionDARPA Brain Initiative ProgramDescriptionElectrical Prescriptions (ElectRx)This program aims to help the human body heal itself through neuromodulation of organ functions using ultraminiaturized devices, approximately the size of individual nerve fibers.Hand Proprioception and Touch Interfaces (HAPTIX)The HAPTIX program will create fully implantable, modular and reconfigurable neural-interface microsystems that communicate wirelessly with external modules, such as a prosthesis interface link, to deliver naturalistic sensations to amputees.Neural Engineering System Design (NESD)The NESD program’s goal is to develop an implantable neural interface able to provide unprecedented signal resolution and data-transfer bandwidth between the brain and the digital world.Neuro Function, Activity, Structure and Technology (Neuro-FAST).The Neuro-FAST program seeks to enable unprecedented visualization and decoding of brain activity to better characterize and mitigate threats to the human brain, as well as facilitate development of brain-in-the-loop systems to accelerate and improve functional behaviors.Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology (N3)The N3 program aims to develop a safe, portable neural interface system capable of reading from and writing to multiple points in the brain at once.Reliable Neural-Interface Technology (RE-NET)The RE-NET program seeks to develop the technologies needed to reliably extract information from the nervous system, and to do so at a scale and rate necessary to control complex machines, such as high-performance prosthetic limbs.
