NASA scientists have been secretly at work for a year on a walking, humanoid-like robot meant to evoke awe in anyone who comes across it — and it looks like they’ve accomplished their mission.

Researchers at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas have released video footage of what they’re entering in a Pentagon-sponsored robotics contest later this month, and the evidence is enough to give just about anyone some spooky, sci-fi nightmares.

The JSC is entering a creation dubbed “Valkyrie” in this year’s DARPA Robotics Competition (hosted by the United States military’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), and it very well may be one of the most realistic endeavors of its type yet.

Measuring in at around 6’2” and around 275 lbs (125 kg; 1.9m), the Valkyrie is a joint effort being undertaken by NASA and scientists at the University of Texas and Texas A&M University that will participate in a trial run later this month against five other creations courtesy of five competing groups of robotics wizzes.

Along with projects from the likes of Drexel University and Virginia Tech, the NASA/Texas team will enter Valkyrie in order to demonstrate a robotic creation designed for disaster areas that can mimic the behavior of man but with some added, lab-produced perks.

The challenge created by DARPA involves tasks like walking over uneven terrain, climbing a ladder, using tools and driving,” Evan Ackerman wrote on Tuesday for the IEEE Spectrum, who first published video of the robotic in action. “This means that Valkyrie has to be capable of operating in the same spaces that a person would operate in, under the control of humans who have only minimal training with robots, which is why the robot’s design is based on a human form,” he said.

And while the creation may indeed be human in form, its designed to do things that the average Joe might have a hard time accomplishing: mighty, interchangeable arms allow for ambidextrous control, and powerful legs provide for bipedal climbing that could put Valkyrie in situations and scenarios that a human being wouldn’t be able to transverse.

Even with humanoid features, however, the Valkyrie sports a modified design that makes it that much more different. Its arms have seven degrees of freedom and its feet feature six-axis force-torque sensors — which, along with every other aspect of what’s intended to be a fully-autonomous endeavor — is powered by a battery on the robot’s backpack, good for around an hour of use before it needs to be recharged.

We really wanted to design the appearance of this robot to be one that when you saw it (you’d say) ‘Wow. That’s awesome,'” Nicolaus Radford of the NASA JSC Dextrous Robotics Lab says in the video published by IEEE Spectrum.

But with electronics aplenty, the developers of the project say they didn’t want to make something that necessarily resembles the metallic clanking robots typical of classic science fiction.

Our robot is soft. If you brush against it while you’re working, you don’t want to feel this cold, hard metal. You want it to feel natural, like you’re working next to another human being. The soft goods, the clothes we put on the robot, give it that feel, that appearance of being more comfortable to be near,” added Radford.

The Valkyrie is expected to go up against the competition on December 20 during the “track A” trials among DRC contestants. Meanwhile, other teams will compete in a less-advanced track that will involve a pre-designed robotic prototype from DARPA dubbed the ATLAS robot. That creation is the same height as the Valkyrie but weighs in at around 55-lbs heavier and has to be tethered to its power source, rather than rely on a backpack.

It is wonderful when someone grasps what you are trying to expose and explain: they run with it and they find the answers.

Hilda did just that. She found what was so well hidden that it had escaped the attention of scientists for years. This is so important. It must be shared and openly discussed. Questions must be asked and answers must be given. This is the information that I have been preparing you for, and leading you towards.

I ask that you devote time to study the implications contained in this lengthy document and carefully consider what steps to take, in order to rectify the damage that was done to humanity by the Dark Ones in order to create a slave race to support and serve them.

You are waking up. The doors are opening wide to a future that, until now, you never expected to have. The future is yours. Grasp it with both hands. Go with the flow towards it. Leave everything negative behind you, it is not worth a moment of your time. Welcome the ENERGY that you will release when you all come together in peace and harmony. This is the last hurdle you face. You now have all the information you need to make the necessary changes. You are almost there. Read the following document carefully, my friends.

Alldenale’s Return and the Event – Message channeled by Multidimensional Ocean -11 Dec.2013

http://multidimensionalocean.wordpress.com/2013/12/11/alldenales-return-and-the-event-message-channeled-by-multidimensional-ocean-11-dec-2013/

kagaya_earthlight1Laura: Hi Allendale! It was nice hearing you and feeling your presence yesterday and again today! Thank you for dropping by and giving us some news! You were telling me about the upcoming Event in the kitchen yesterday. Would you like to give us some news about it maybe?
Allendale: Ai lassie! It is good to be back. I have returned to be part and to witness the last and final phase of the Ascension of this amazing planet of yours.
She has been caring for so many for so long, she went through pain and suffering through time, and now, she is in her most desperate hour seemingly, because of the constant threats to her life and to the lives that she carries with her.
We all have an immense respect and love for your Earth, and we all rejoice to see her suffering come at last to an end, as she will complete the final phase of the permanent transition into the freedom and loving grounds of the 5th dimension.
You are going to see more and more activity in the air, as it is going to be increasingly difficult for the ET guests to remain hidden from the amateur astronomers, and the folks on the ground with cameras and iphones. he he he ! (smiles and giggles). I have to admit that there s a big crowd out there monitoring this birthing event so to speak.
It is going to be an amazing transition, and we all want to be part of it.
I know… at the moment, the cabal and just random events are conspiring together to take as many souls down the rabbit hole as possible, including your planet’s soul. This is in fact a sign of how desperate they are, and how they try all the tricks in the books.
This is the other reason why so many of us are here to keep an eye and an ear on their deeds, so that they don’t interfere in a dramatic manner with this beautiful transition.
The transition is in the books, it has already taken place, and many of us, who can time travel come back to this moment in time, when all seems lost, and people begin to awaken to the fact that they have been lulled into this illusion of democracy, of freedom and peace, when in actual fact the truth is far from what is being advertised on TV by the news media.
This is a moment in time when the power of awakening hits many, and the vibrations of love, peace and change begin to truly manifest visibly into reality.
Oh, I know that your readers have been fed up of hearing us speak of liberation time and again. You have got to understand that to any of us, who exist outside of the time and space plane, we do not perceive time as you do at all. So I am sorry for al the unrest and expectations that our messages can sometimes bring to you. Please take them with a pinch of salt and understnd that they come from a time outside of time, and from a place, outside of space. From beings who have bridged the gap between the perception of life and death. To us life and death are 2 sides of the same coin, and we keep our consciousness both when we take a physical form and when we are only in our energy form.
I come to bring great news, as the matters will continue their natural acceleration from now on towards the Event. The Event will be as beautiful as you can all dream it as a collective, you will help and shape this transition into 5D.
It wil be a cosmic Event, of Galactic impact and awareness. The victory of Love and Light at long last, that many of you have been waiting for, for so long, thoughout many ives.
Keep dreaming of love, of peace, keep calling your twin flame to you, and you will experience unimaginable hights of love, passion, and you will transform yourselves and the planet together.
The Earth’s rivers will flow with tears of joy, and with unconditional love.
Earth will be freed from those who kept it in shackles for eons and will know true joy and abundance at last.
Many people are still working behind the scenes to make dreams come true. These are your angels and archangels, and also many people incarnated onto the Earth at this time.
Keep the spirit of love and Chrismas alive, open your heart to joy and abundance.
The door is now open, and you are once step away.
Allendale out!

MAKE THIS VIRAL! RETURN TO INNOCENCE

RETURN TO INNOCENCE
12-21-2013

After the very successful activation of the Aion portal, it is time to take action again! Therefore we will meet in groups large and small, as individuals and couples, at the time of the solstice on December 21st, to experience the Return to Innocence. Many of us will gather and open ourselves to the deepest aspect of our Being, the innocent Soul, to anchor our consciousness beyond the world of games the Cabal tries to play with us.

Our inner experience will support the plan for planetary liberation, so that it manifests as soon as possible, as non-violently and smoothly as possible. We can do it! It needs to go viral! We need to reach many people, so that the critical mass of people actually doing it is attained. Please post it on your websites and blogs. If you know an alternative media outlet, you can send it to them. You can create a Facebook group for your local group of people dong this in your part of the world. You can create a video about this and post it on Youtube.

The moment of solstice on December 21st will be a culmination point of a mini portal which will open at the end of October-December Window of Opportunity. This mini portal will be a multidimensional window to further anchor and ground the energies of the Aion portal and prepare us for the activation of a very important portal which will open in April 2014.

The mini portal will open with full moon on December 17th, will have its turning point with Return to Innocence activation on December 21st and will close on December 25th.

The heliocentric chart for Return to Innocence activation shows a grand trine of Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron (together with Juno), healing a grand square of Venus, Vesta, Mercury and Juno. This signifies the time when healing of all tensions within the collective feminine principle is finally possible, leading us towards the return of innocence:

When we are in touch with our innocent Soul presence, we are beyond the reach of the Cabal and their manipulations. When a critical mass of people experiences that innocence, there is no turning back. It will bring about the disintegration of Archon’s control systems of karma, lack and guilt and open our collective consciousness for the arrival of the miraculous.

Miraculous reality is the future destiny of our planet and the future outcome of the evolution of the totality of our universe, when we all converge into the One.

We have been programmed by the Archons in Atlantis to stop believing in fairy tales and to buy into the reality they created for us. But we do not need to play the game by their rules anymore. It is time to wake up and begin creating a reality we all deserve. When you have a strong contact with your inner innocence, you do not need to struggle for survival or follow any other aspect of Cabal’s programming. You can exit the game and being manifesting everything you need through magnetic manifestation by expressing yourself as a Soul and following your divine mission which helps you to contribute to the planetary liberation.

We will be having our main activation in Glastonbury in United Kingdom. Glastonbury is one of the most powerful Goddess vortices on the planet and the perfect place to anchor the Return to Innocence activation. You are more than welcome to join us:

http://portal2012.org/Glastonbury.html

Even if you can not join us in Glastonbury, you can do this activation in your own group or even alone, wherever in the world you are. We will all be doing this activation at the same time, at the moment of the solstice, which comes on December 21st at 5 hours 11 minutes pm UT/GMT. This equals 6:11 pm CET in central Europe, 12:11 pm EST in New York, 11:11 am CST in Chicago, 10:11 am MST in Phoenix and 9:11 am PST in LA.

You can view the exact time of the activation for many places here:

http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Return+To+Innocence&iso=20131221T1710&p1=2477

Instructions:

1. Dedicate December 21st to get in touch with your inner innocence. Read a fairy tale. Play with your child. Watch the sunrise. Smell the flowers. Smile.

2. Few minutes before solstice make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and relax by watching your breath

3. Each time your breathe out, radiate your inner innocence into your surroundings through your heart chakra and continue doing so for anytime between 5 and 30 minutes

Well, how does everyone feel today? Squashed? Ecstatic? Tired? Want to find a nice comfy cave for a while?

Well, now I know I have a lot of male energy. I just put a piece of furniture together without once looking at the directions! And even used a tool!

Cold persists, both inside and outside, although I feel stronger today. Did have an overwhelming urge to nap this afternoon, but managed to finish the work day without finding a dusty corner.

When I tune in, I instantly feel really light energies, heart-warming glow. Very nice. Need an open heart to feel it.

This morning had the usual discussions with guides. At one point, I’m not sure if I was quite dreaming or what, but I visualized a crystal basin in front of me. It was filled with a dark liquid and looked kind of gunky…

Attacks Are a Call For Help

[Translated by PinChu/Feilla2013 from an original Chinese source]

It’s in fact very difficult to get that “Attacks are in fact the sign for asking for help”  because at that very moment, our negative mood also gets evoked. The solution is to experience a sense of well-being of our own existence .

I in fact heard  by accident from a friend that : [ attack is in fact a sign of asking for help.] The first time when I heard this, I was just startled, having no more idea about it, and just wondered : attack is undoubtedly malicious, besides, it injures people or even provokes self-defense. So how would it possibly be the sign of asking for help ? Asking for help is on the contrary a sign of goodwill, it has to do with reliance and the will of doing exchange.

Later on according to what I got in the course of doing consultations and my personal experience of getting along with my family, I could make out this gradually. When one of my female patient told me how her husband was vexatious, blaming her for her irreverence to his parents, it occurred to me that : her husband was in fact asking for help. It turned out that her husband was in fact desperate for the bad relationship between his wife and mother. So this kind of behavior was asking for her help in the circumstances that he felt so painful and helpless, and would like his wife can understand his emotion and consideration towards his parents, and treat them as he does. However, how many people in the world are capable to express pertinently their own helplessness and as well as to ask for help? Most people turn directly this kind of mood into anger, even attacks. Via attacks, they push the very ones to make out their own critical situation and change these ones to satisfy their expectation.

However, most people show an armed state to do self defense or to prepare to defense, as their instinct. I that circumstances, the mood behind it becomes very complex, such as grievances, sadness, anger and helplessness. IN all lifetime of most people, this kind of communication mode may repeat again and again. Some other ones may turn this kind of behavior into Cold War, such as indifference, few conversation, less contact. All these are for avoiding more quarrels that are thought to cause more harm. However, at the same time they are so afraid so of becoming strangers to each other.

In my own recent case as being mad with my own family, I found that when I was in a very anger, complaining that my family neither understand, nor support me, I suddenly found  that I was in fact asking for their help in distress. Since my work pressure gets enlarged, and it’s the very course that my work is at the very crossroad of changes, I need much more their understanding and acceptance. However, since my childhood, I’m not used to ask for help from the people who are closed to me, I just skipped from that kind of mood to anger, dissatisfaction and attack. Realizing this, I confessed to them that I did have such a pressure; if they feel being attacked, it was in fact a misunderstanding, as I was asking for their help, longing for getting their support and unconditional comfort.

But at the very moment when we are the very attacked object, it becomes more difficult to realized that attack is in fact a sign of asking for help. Because  at that very moment, our own negative mood gets evoked, and we are blown away by it. We hence cannot calm down and make out “what’s going on exactly?” What we can see is only the ruin of the appalling battlefield, the wounded ones who respectively fall their own back, licking their wounds lonely. The wounds may even still get bleeding.

The solution hence lies in a sense of well-being, that of security and confidence to some degree. When you can center your mind, at clearness and ease, you won’t be easily blown away by this furious mood. On the contrary , your wisdom will be generated ; besides, your mind will be as clear as a mirror, reflecting what’s hidden behind those malicious attacks. [ Aha ! It turned out that he was in fact asking for my help. However, I should have been unaware of this, even had thought that he looks down on me, hates me. However, the truth is that behind this tough facial expression, he is actually asking for my help ! ] When you see this truth, your tears would drop, and you will finally get that, [ it’s in fact not owing to my fault, but that he was showing his helplessness.]

When you get this, the next time when someone attacks you, you won’t first think of defense, fighting back, guilt, even revenge, but ask “What cause him this way, and what I can do to help him get out of this. ”

Giant Underwater Pyramid Found Near Azores Island Associated With Atlantis, Portuguese Navy Investigating

[Konstantinos’s note: Thanks to my  friend Pinchu-Feilla for letting me and others, who may haven’t noticed this post back in September, know about this.]

http://beforeitsnews.com/beyond-science/2013/09/giant-underwater-pyramid-found-near-azores-island-associated-with-atlantis-portuguese-navy-investigating-2443658.html

Researchers have discovered an underwater pyramid 60 meters high and 8000 meters square base near the Bank De João de Castro, between the islands of Terceira and São Miguel.
B4INREMOTE-aHR0cDovLzEuYnAuYmxvZ3Nwb3QuY29tLy1neHRmTUtDUzR1Yy9Va0VmNEZtMTdWSS9BQUFBQUFBQVZDRS84YWh6d2lPQU9Xdy9zNDAwL3VuZGVyd2F0ZXIrcHlyYW1pZC5QTkc=

Video here

 The structure was identified by the sailor Diocleciano Smith based on bathymetry readings. The author does not believe that the pyramid is of natural origin.

The Government says that the matter is already being investigated with the support of the Portuguese Navy.

The Regional Secretary of Education  Luiz Fagundes Duarte believes that, taking into account the location one should not treat it as human work.

In the video it is said that the vertexes of the pyramids are aligned in a way that one of them points north and one of them points south, exactly like the pyramid of Giza.

 The base bigger than a football stadium.
The discoverer found it a few months ago but he couldnt really believe it, he kept it a secret and began to study it, he then decided to reveal it.
 The man already has given the coordinates to Portuguese officials for further study.

Terceira, also referred to as the “Ilha Lilás” (the “lilac” or “violet” island), is an island in the Azores archipelago, in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean. It is one of the larger islands of the archipelago, with a population of 56,000 inhabitants in an area of approximately 396.75 km². It is the location of the historical capital of the archipelago, the Azores’ oldest city and UNESCO Heritage Site (Angra do Heroísmo), the seat of the judicial system (Supreme Court), main base of the Azores Air Zone Command (Commando da Zona Aérea dos Açores) Base Aérea nº 4 and to a United States Air Force detachment.

 Historically, there has been uncertainty in the date and the discoverer associated with the islands of the Azores. Nautical charts before the “official” discovery identified islands in the Atlantic Ocean as far back as 1325, when a chart by Angelino Dalorto identified “Bracile” west of Ireland, and later one by Angelino Dulcert which identifies the Canaries, and Madeira, along with mysterious islands denominated as “Capraria” (whom some historians suggest were São Miguel and Santa Maria).

Legends also persisted of Atlantis, Sete Cidades (Kingdoms of the Seven Cities), the Terras of São Brandão, the Ilhas Aofortunadas (The Fortunate Islands), the Ilha da Brasil (the Island of Brasil), Antília, the Ilhas Azuis (Blue Islands), the Terra dos Bacalhaus (Land of Codfish), and charts appeared between 1351 and 1439 of several groupings of islands with various names. The first association between the modern island of Terceira and these stories, was that of the island of Brasil; it first appears as Insula de Brasil in the Venetian map of Andrea Bianco (1436), attached to one of the larger islands of a group of islands in the Atlantic.
