Looking Toward The Future
All roads of knowledge are interconnected by technology. This digital book is created on the presumption that better days can lie ahead for the collective human race.
It is best not to view this in landscape mode.
The internet along with AI will connect many wonderful inner city environments more globally connected than you can imagine, and connected to all manner of future tech. Getting around in the future, from the AeroMobil (which surpasses the Taylor Aerocar of 1950) to the gyroscopic transport. CERN anyone? Some things will be great; other automations will not seem applicable.
Some people may think of Fatima as some outcrop of medieval superstition; something that man came up to explain a story fostered in some old religion. And, many today may even think of religion as myth, to be supplanted or replaced by a world of science and technology. The essence of science starts with the evidence (data) which can then translate into answers. You develop the theory that can explain the evidence. If it successfully explains the evidence, you can hold on to that theory, but if you can’t, you throw it away until you come up with another theory. The funny thing is that this book will try to do both, demonstrate hard evidence demonstrating Fatima was a real historical event, not to be caste aside, and give data that is not explainable by science but points to truths of the Christian faith that are as real as the nose on you face.
In the past this has happened before, scientific evidence that supports the evidence of something to exist but that was not explainable by science: the Shroud of Turin and the tilma of Our Lady of Guadalupe brought by a Mexican peasant, are two examples both over 500 years ago. Science explains they are real indeed, but cannot explain why so, and so in essence, they to this end, contradict the definition of science. The tilma of the Mexican Juan Diego is very unique for it is composed of a cactus cloth that supposedly only has a lifetime of under 100 years, yet to this date it is undamaged and has not disintegrated. Moreover, science cannot counterfeit both.
The story of Fatima must lend itself to the story of the modern-age. Ditto with her publishing aspect. The new, and veteran book publishers of Fatima books mainly stick to the religious topic of Fatima and do not have to decide about other affairs. That is wonderful, providing information on said topic, and needless to say that is about the only benefit of being Fatima centric.
Some historians of Fatima publish histories of monumental changes that have occurred since 1917, but lack the approach of worldwide developments that dot the modern landscape and the future. That is the reason we have chosen this book to be digital, it has the properties to be more current and can provide a landscape of immesurable wealth. The decades after 1917 form a forest of knowledge the likes you have never seen before, and this book provides a venture into this knowledge that may leave you breathless. However, unlike other Fatima centric books, we include in our treatise topics such as the current expanding affairs in the Mideast, Garabandal and Conchita’s warnings about the Synod and a connection to Russia. Like World War Two, huge mountains of books have been written on Fatima, but none in a single book, much less an ebook, that honor the spiritual, international front and behind-the-scenes scenarios, plus the supernatural.
Many lack the scientific investigations to their properties, including the properties that feature the eyewitnesses themselves, plus various messages from Our Blessed Mother that come from her Son--that are independent of the propositions of man.
One data point is the miracle of Oct. 13, 1917 in which a solar disk spinned, scared the heck out of people, religious and skeptics, and dried the earth, witnessed by over 60,000 people.
As I approached my first decade of research, I saw numerous dots missing, and not just the dots that link the Vatican silencing of Sister Lucia. The compass of our time has progressed immensely with technology, such as IOT, which is quite prevailing. Another welcome is artificial intelligence (AI), which is part of our daily lives. It is a thankless part that mark both the conventional and unconventional dots, and embody beyond 2017.
The whole concept of Marian history and human history is intertwined in evolvement. There are many, many smokescreens that cover the dimension of the story. The job of a good historian is to demonstrate what is relevant, but believe me, the ocean which current society swims in, appears to have taken a turn for the worse when it comes to morality. And, that being said, few in the modernity of things may find this book appealing; yet, one will persevere.
This digital book conveys the latest information on Fatima, and supports conversational artificial intelligence--although, I think the days of artificial intelligence (AI), like HAL in 2001, are gone, replaced by the latest in AI technology; although the crossover to ASI will be most menacing as it is something humans can not hope to achieve. [edit note: artificial intelligence (AI) is the process of a machine that ties thinking, perception and action together. AI is changing our lives. One example is conversational AI AMELIA; not your common every day AI. Unlike 2020, AI is real, see this ABC World News Tonight with David Muir link from Jan. 30, 2024, and advance to the 13.15 min mark on the medical announcement breakthrough on a biochip in the brain, Neuralink.
Conversational AI is now in its infancy, yet goes beyond Siri and Alexa and some of it will replace people and is freaky (courtesy of Thansis1997, Motech, AISHE and ABC News, Beeyond Ideas). The future of human interfaces will be more intuitive, inclusive of Apple, Android, making your Alexa model old, as LAM (LaMDA) becomes triggered, for now known as R1 and GPT-4. (11 mins)
There are seven stages to AI.
Do you remember yourself about 10 years ago? (courtesy of Bright Side, and how the dots of a future 2025 may look.) AI research and neural networks are rather novel and only beginning. The concept of computers teaching computers is as revolutionary as the commencement of computers were to the lifestyles of the mid-century era, ie. late 50s-1960s.
The future cosmos and the human dimension will involve AI, yet to what degree? (above 6 videos courtesy of Curiosity Stream, CNET, AI Uncovered, Bright Side, Caltech, Ares Descent)
What dots in mere space will each of us occupy? Will it be part of an innovatively bold and bright future or, one disconnected and left in a dim, reflective pool? Computing power can be real. Oh, beautiful planet what make of thee? Dystopian, altruistic, homophobic, amicably Biblical, animalistic? banalistic? How traverse the universe? And, what kind, dots the ambient freedom of the future? A technocratic system without God? or with God—and He who rose from the dead? The story of Fatima is not imaginary. There has to be a greater meaning to life than just science. Humanity may not loose control but, it might become a tangible nightmare in our future, if this pans out. ((courtesy of Beeyond Ideas ) Beyond AI, there exist things like nanotechnology. Remember that word, for it will be prevailing in the near future.) It is the hope of this author that we must not forget God, and alongside the technocratic world of the future, continue to accept God’s and our Blessed Mother’s help.
We live in ominous times.
Centers of Christian societies took centuries and centuries to materialize after the Fall of the Roman Empire--beset by pagan peoples, followed by rivalries of dukes, princes, kings and queens. And, then plagues. A contour of Christianity with interfaith squabbling and death and greed.
The bar of information in this treatise is high. Numerous data points will form enlightening sparks of information, and the spectrum may amaze you.
There is a novel way to read this book. And, it can be exciting.
It is called Moon+ Reader Pro which is an app that is downloadable which can read any file. That’s the way to go. It forces your smartphone to not only make it easier to read it, it can also make the book read aloud to you. That is the quintessential way to read this book on any non-Apple device, actually any ebook.
For iPads and iPhones try Speechify on the App Store when your reading time is
If you do purchase it, familiarize yourself. Open your book + Reader Pro.
Use your fingers to turn any pg. Tap on the center of the pg, and you will see the following tiny icons at bottom.
Tip #1. Hit the bottom 3 dots and keep the following check markers on & press OK. To hear your ebook read, see Tip #8.
2nd tip After OK, try not to fool around with parameter buttons if you’re not computer savvy. Tip #3. Tap on center of the pg, don’t use the big letter A on top as it increases size of text but messes up on the photos. It is to be used if your ebook has only text. [Retap A to get out of it if u did tap it, rem to tap center of pg 1st] Never tap the 4th icon, not needed. If u do, swipe your fingers diagonally across pg,to stop it or it will scroll entire book and you will waste your time. To increase text size, easiest way is to press left icon at bott, that turns our page lengthwise. You can use your fingers to also increase text further (above r), and it will stay there. Again, to move back an forth between pages, you move a pg with your fingers but rem, your pg is sideways. How to go back to normal pg mode? Again, tap the little left icon.
Tip #4 If by chance you see the following do not press them. If you did, you locked your page accidentally.
To emergency unlock, press the right with the 2 arrows, however if it still says locked, repress it and it will say unlocked. Once it says unlocked you are good to go. If it becomes unlocked but your ebook pgs don’t turn like a reg book, DO NOT PANICK. Here is where you had messed up and you had told it to read book by scrolling down, AND to get out of that is simple. Now, press once the following, you’ll return to normal.
And all your icons should look like so, with 7 icons.
One early enlightening spark of information will be the discovery of the sculptor Thomas McGlynn O.P.; of whom you will read, in another following link. While on the topic of techno, a subject dear to the author’s heart, although the following PDF does not provide information about Fatima, the PDF provides a unique look at what was invented during the last century, which is a key component of the story of Fatima.
This is part 1, from 1900 to 1967.
This PDF is included to show what existed and what was possible in terms of inventions and discoveries. It was originally included as an appendix in the printed book.
This PDF is quite varied, from the first radios and air flights to outer space. It goes up to only 1967. Part 2 of this will follow later, including such goodies as GTO-DI, GPS, and the first Hollywood film to link the camera with the wizardy of computers. If you are quite young, this is a bonus for you. The things that came about is quite interesting. This will, perhaps, be helpful in the understanding of history, because remember, we are covering many decades in the ebook.
Tip #5. Back in reg mode, and using round circle move it all the way to the left. You will see at the right this > OR <. Keep pressing it til you get to pg 6. Press 3 dots again. Press a checkmark on Bookmarks. Now you have 8 icons at bott (see larger illustration--unless on your own, u already pressed a checkmark.)
Press bookmark icon (left of magnifying glass), & where it says add new bookmark press it. That turns your table of contents pg TOC as a bookmark. So later when you are reading any pg, and you wish to go to the Table of Contents, it will whisk you to it. To leave your bookmark pg, press v top left arrow. Sample suppose you are on pg 99. Tap the center of pg, see the icons? Pressing 6th icon, your bookmark(s) will pop up. One of which is the TOC. Press on that and voila, you will see your TOC pg show up. From there you can short cut to any chapter you want to explore. ie. chap 3 139.
Tip #6 and very very important. In TOC, do you see the highlighted pg #s? To go there just press any pg #. But to return back to TOC, press the big blue arrow (bottom).
Tip #7. It is easy to look up a word. Again tap center of pg, and under magnifying glass icon, type in the word you are looking for. Sometimes you had already searched other words, in that case one of them pops up, so how do you type in a new word? Easy. If a past word shows up, press your finger on the last letter. Erase each letter 1 by 1. Once all gone, type in your new search. With practice it all becomes second nature. Whenever unsure how to get out of anything press the big “x” on the screen. The rest of the parameters you can experiment, but not until you become more familiar with your 8 tips. Practice makes perfect, like throwing a football.
Tip #8. To make your ebook read to you. Again tap pg, and press 3rd icon which looks like a funny speaker. Do not monkey around with the parameters unless you know what you are doing. Just press Start TTS. Whenever you wish to stop, pressing center of your pg does a pause. Press to cont. The little icons once u pressed pause can be useful. Try not to fool around with vol, pitch or speed, unless u want to change them. See the arrows below on your handheld device? Each one is different, they are for going to another sentence back and forth or to a diff pg. One more thing: Press the 3 dots upper right. In Miscellaneous, scroll down to the middle till you see “Use embedded fonts in book”. Make sure you check the mark to enable “on” otherwise, as I discovered, any numeral in the book appears as a lousy faded number. You don't want that, do you? Press x to return to regular page. When the book reads to you PRESSING a tiny square ON THE EXTREME bottom of pg takes you out of reading aloud mode and back to normal reading mode. Like riding a bike, it's all in the practice.

Quantum teleportation may still be far off, yet it might be interesting to see the Next three videos, take your pick: 10 amazing AI tools that already exist: about 13 mins or 12 mins (videos courtesy of Hayls World, and courtesy of Futurology. Take your time to watch them; at least one.) Innovation today is still formative as what China is trying to do but will eventually upgrade (video courtesy of FutureWorld.) Bus, taxi, delivery truck drivers will get the ax, if projections for a driverless world fully pan out.
By 2024, the beads of science have surpassed many expectations necessary for the betterment of humanity, from microscopic nanotechnology to awesome international ventures that range from small driverless cars (much is still in the experimental stages) to breathtaking high-speed rail, that includes this flagship in Chinese technology.
Humanity, I believe, can meet the challenge to provide human benefits, which is good but, the curbside pockets of menacing evil can also exist on the road to betterment, as witnessed in late 2023, when zealous hordes of Muslim terrorists employed technology to their own adoptive arm’s race, as seen adopted by fellow co-horts from Yemen over the Red Sea. They gleefully dispersed evils on traveling commercial targets with their pearls of death, outgoing drones—long-range drones, once a dream of the future, are now a maniacal application of a horrific novelty. I ask you, are they really necessary for the betterment of man?
My hope is that the gamut of benefits for society leave the unspeakable world of war technology, and allow the world to form a better modern era. I have always loved passenger trains for they are a wonderful way to see the land, if planned right. There exist beauties in both China and Russia— today seen as nemesis in arms in a la world moderne (that should be truncated)—with a kaleidoscope of wonders that can showcase their lands and people by rail, a beauty that exists, if only the jealousies of war would disappear. Why cant’t people get along? In 2024, for example—truncating war and military expenditures—is this planned $1.5 trillion investment by both China and Russia to develop a super-duper transnational high speed rail. That can be part of a better future. But, as long as there is war to be had, animosities, and economic blockade (ensuring the fat cats’s profits for their war chests) the instabilities can render the prospects of a better modern era into a bleak, dismal picture of the future. A prosperous future, from the microscopic to the vitality crossing borders on awesome scales, can be had, if countries drop their perculatung stills that cause drunkenness and blindness on great leaders, and bind them to wars. The benefits of AI will also suffer.
The presence of a better future for the rest of society can be a reality for a growing population that is expected to explode even further but, sadly, if it turns out otherwise, it may be because of not following what was requested in 1917. Its disputes and countercoups are best related within the ebook, because it is complicated. If you are Catholic, you may have an idea. If you are not, you may ask yourself why should I believe any of this in the first place? Isn’t promising technology good enough for society? This whole Fatima is not even mentioned in the Bible.
The same question was asked by many in 1917—by non-Catholic and Catholic alike like “Why should they believe it?”—it did not matter what denomination you belonged or not. It did not matter what nationality you were from and it did not even matter if you believed in no God. A phenomena was felt by all. Society is in an era that is indisputably grievous, even though absorbed in wonderful technologies, however one October day in 1917, something happened so supernatural, it shook people by their eyeballs, young and old.
