Fool's Gold

 Google has a cute April Fool's joke this year - an 8-bit Google Maps for Nintendo. The Japanese children are delighted when they can find the Pyramids of Giza, the Skytree of Japan and the Nazca of Peru. All man-made constructions, two ancient and one modern, that some surmise have been intentionally designed to be "seen from space".

The natural question is "seen by who?", and we get all kinds of alien gods, angels and nephilim stepping in to take the role. Since Google actually DOES see things from space, one might suspect that Google is showing itself, in a playful manner, to be our new god.

I'd have to say the Google are right. Whenever I want to know something, I run to the computer and query Google for the answer. I'm like a resident of the Emerald City who, when confronted with an anomaly like the 'Surrender Dorothy' skywriting of the Wicked Witch of the West over the city, I rush to the Wizard/Google for an answer.

We also saw a curious story about the Anonymous hactivists who some say had threatened to take down the internet today. But no, that story was the work of trolls:
It’s of course still possible that some hackers will attempt to take down the Internet today. They will fail. Furthermore, they won’t be supported by Anonymous. I can’t emphasize this enough: do not believe reports saying Anonymous is attacking the Internet. Some may be trying, but the larger group has made it clear many times it loves the Internet and would never even attempt to take it down.
So there you go. Even Anon loves the Wizard.

Human Consciousness, the 8-bit computer getting an upgrade. 8, 16, 32, 64. Or 8x8 - the star g8. When we're done, we'll realize we never needed the Wizard after all, the ability was within us all the time.
