EXCLUSIVE: The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness is a giant Disinformation Comedy Show

While humankind tries to get everyday more aware about its role as a civilization and how to relate and connect to the Universe, the Disinformation machine never stops. Its latest performance was a fake University Conference in which a bunch of "scientists" reached the awkward and unexpected conclusion that even animals have a Consciousness.

Indeed I just learned that: "a prominent international group of cognitive-neuroscientists,neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuroanatomists and computational neuroscientists gathered at The University of Cambridge reached this conclusion": 

We declare the following: “The absence of a neocortex does not appear to preclude an organism from experiencing affective states. Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Nonhuman animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.”

The two pages conference paper can be seen here 

For your knowledge, the whole list of "scientists" have no affiliation with the University of Cambridge.

And this says all about this "Declaration". 

However as we are very committed people to the matter of Consciousness which we consider as the starting point of human awareness towards real evolution, we want to explain to our readers WHY this statement is simply ridiculous and why this Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness is a giant DISINFORMATION scheme, a huge fraud whose only objective is to destroy the human path towards awareness by exploiting people' sympathy towards domestic pets and for the animal world in general. 

Unfortunately for these fraudsters, Consciousness implies EMPATHY and AWARENESS, a condition that would inevitably lead animals to EVOLVE, something that has never been witnessed in the natural world and that would never ever HAPPEN.

Animals are not aware of who they are otherwise they would be in an evolution process and our dogs wouldn't jump on our couch when we treat them like human beings. This is the basic difference. Animals do not know they are animals and you can easily see it when you start spoiling your dog and then suddenly you want to restore discipline or a sort of order/education. If they were aware of who they are they would never behave like humans but they would accept their condition of animals.

At this regard you can read the Alicia P.Melis experiments at the Max Planck Institute. 

At present Dr. Alicia P.Melis is  Assistant Professor of Behavioural Science at Warwick Business School. 
While she was working as researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, she went to Ngamba Island in Uganda to study chimpanzee behavior. 

After ten years of continuous experiments, Dr. Melis demonstrated that in the wild, chimps are not in an evolution process because of their selfish attitude, a sort of natural instinct that push them to "exploit" their beta fellows to achieve food and not to share it. 

The main experiment consisted of two chimps in a cage and food put in front of them outside of the cage. A rope passes along a wood stick where the food is. In order to get the food the alpha chimp needs the help of the beta chimp. 

Alpha calls up Beta to cooperate together in order to get the food. That´s intelligence. 

However, once the alpha chimp is able to reach the food, if this is not enough for both of them, only the alpha fellow between the two get to eat. 

Hence, once the food is put a second time on the stick the beta fellow is not willing to cooperate because he knows he won´t get any reward. Animals do not evolve because they do not have Consciousness. They do not have Consciousness because they lack Empathy, which is the basis of Consciousness. The beta chimp helps the other not because it feels empathy towards its condition of hunger, but because the beta itself is starving too so they collaborate together to satisfy their state of hunger.

This is where evolution arrests for chimpanzees. With this simple experiment she demonstrated that Consciousness is a human prerogative because what pulls the monkey Beta to help the monkey Alpha is not empathy nor any kind of AWARENESS of itself that would help him to mirror into his fellow. Animals lack awareness of their own self which is the starting point of empathy. If you are not aware of yourself you cannot mirror yourself into someone else' condition hence you cannot feel empathy. (I hope is clear now)

I know this is a difficult subject but to reinforce Prof. Melis scientific achievement, we could report that the very same conclusions of Dr. Melis, have been reached by Evolutionary Biologist Chris Adami of the Michigan State University. As we do not want to bore our audience, let just say that Prof. Adami reached the conclusion that SHARING is the only attitude that leads to Evolution. Prof. Adami scientifically demonstrated that a selfish attitude leads any life form from single cell entities to human society to its Extinction, while Sharing not only leads any Biological community to its survival but to Evolution. 

We can speculate that this conclusions might be extremely scary for those forces of Darkness who see altruism and sharing as the very image of the devil, and who instead consider selfishness as the most beautiful example of human survival instinct.

As a matter of fact, the disinformation machine has always been teaching us that selfishness and greed are good feelings that would improve our condition of individuals. This might be true in the short term, but in the long term selfishness and greed would lead any Community to its own extinction.

Do you realize now why Dr. Melis scientific achievement and Prof. Adami's conclusions are the worst possible nightmare for some people and that these idiots have been led to set up a giant fake conference only to try to keep people away from the truth?  

With Dr. Steven Greer's Consciousness movement that is growing everyday more and more awareness about our role in the Universe, what these "people" are trying to do is not to elevate the importance of the animal world but their objective instead is to downgrade the role of Consciousness to the animal level. 

Do you realize how idiotic, tricky and funny this is? 

However the situation is in fact very serious, because these people have a huge disinformation power. To give you an idea of the extent of this disinformation machine, read below the articles and the media outlets that published this absolute nonsense (Links will open in a new window)








Could you explain me how an average folk would be able to put into discussion such a huge mass of information coming from such a mainstream media power? Unfortunately for them and luckily for us, today the independent media are much more reliable than the mainstream, but still we have to acknowledge they worked very much to prop this whole thing up.

Sometimes I feel a sort of pity for these disinformation folks, although I almost quiet admire them for their determination, I can almost see them working hours and days to set up this giant comedy show only to attack our path towards awareness. I really hope one day we will have a beer together but in the meanwhile we are on opposite fronts. 

However this thing requires enormous motivation and a very good reason to do so, unfortunately for them their reasons are the wrong ones and what they are really doing is trying to stop our civilization from evolving towards Awareness. And this is something nobody has the right to do so.

NO SCIENTIST in his/her right mind would ever reach such a crazy conclusion nor he would risk his/her career with such a misleading statement unless he's being paid to do. 

To confirm you that this is a giant propaganda scheme we would like to report the most meaningful detail of this "Conference":

The Declaration was signed by the conference participants that very evening, in the presence of Stephen Hawking, in the Balfour Room at the Hotel du Vin in Cambridge, UK. The signing ceremony was memorialized by CBS 60 Minutes.

Prof. Stephen Hawking has been part of an active disinformation campaign over life in the Universe since March 2010 when he speculated that any life form existing in the Universe had to be considered dangerous.

On this issue I have been published an article "Stephen Hawking perceives the Universe like a chimp" on April 29 2010 on American Chronicle. Obviously my reference to the chimp's perception of the Universe was related to Dr. Alicia Melis conclusions.

The funny aspect of this article story is that you can still see the article headline and a few lines on this link here, unfortunately though, if you click on the headline, that would lead you nowhere as for some reasons which now are clear to everyone who just read this, my article has been removed both from American Chronicle than from Zimbio but there's a link that has not been removed yet which you can find it here.

I hope you realize how stupid these people are and how idiotic is their fight to prevent humankind from evolving. You can't be even thinking that you can hide something so huge as Life in the Universe or like Universal Consciousness, because these two things are the very essence of the whole Universe.
