Bruce Willis - Salem Nuclear Power Plant Security Guard, Deepwater Dupont, Salem, NJ Early Quaker Settlement on DE River

“Before he was making Razzies history, the alum of Penns Grove High School (Bruce Willis) worked at Salem Nuclear Power Plant in Lower Alloways Creek and DuPont Chambers Works factory in Deepwater, Pennsville.” @Stephers

"Willis is swapping sides from good to bad, playing the leader of a gang of mercenaries whose lust for revenge sees him hold a nuclear power plant hostage. "

“With the outbreak of World War I, industry boomed at the DuPont Powder Works and Chamber Works in the Penns Neck region north of Salem, and workers poured into the area seeking employment. DuPont remained a major employer for the rest of the century.”

I’m starting to equate “peace” with radio-eugenic harmonization - biophysics.

Hmmm. I had no idea. This seems VERY significant (in light of Bruce Willis’ films).

Yes, the connection you are making with the peaceful Quakers and nuclear programs/radio-eugenics seems sound, and worthy of even deeper exploration. Most would never suspect this intimate relationship, especially given the circulating notion of nuclear tech being applied to weaponry/war (anti-peace).

I would really like to know what lay at the bottom of this nuclear rabbit hole. Who knew the Quakers could potentially be a doorway?!

As you mentioned, Salem (in Hebrew) means PEACE. It is a derivation of Shalom.

Even more…

From the verb שלם (shalem), to be or make whole or complete.

Most translators interpret the name Salem with Peace or At Peace (NOBSE Study Bible Name List, Jones’ Dictionary of Old Testament Proper Names) but more accurate is Perfect or Complete.

I can’t help but also think about the fear and insecurity these films create in their audiences.

I feel like hormesis is going to be getting a lot of play moving forward - how to hack your metabolism with low-dose radiation from your local blockchained salt molten reactor.

A NUCLEAR.COM EXCLUSIVE:
The Fukushima Effect - A Good Time to Discuss Hormesis

by Steve Schulin

There is much evidence that low levels of radiation have a beneficial effect on human health, rather than having a detrimental effect. I’ve heard many assert that there is no safe amount of radiation. Well, we don’t know exactly where the dose-effect curve for radiation moves from benefit to harm, but we do know that the evidence supports the conclusion that low doses do indeed have a healthful effect.

I was prompted again to think about this subject due to the headlines around the world about a French comedian attributing Japan’s recent sporting victory over France to what he called “The Fukushima Effect” – he showed an image of Japan’s goalie using four arms to stop the French shots. I’ve seen reports of Japanese officials decrying the insensitivity of this joke, apparently worried that, yes, folks who were (and are) being exposed to radiation from multiple meltdowns at Fukushima could conceivably grow more arms, or perhaps have children with severe birth defects.

These officials are doing a disservice to their people, by emphasizing the dread of radiation. Let me tell you a story straight out of the scientific literature which illustrates why officials should say, yes the Fukushima effect might make it seem like our goalie has four arms, even though he has only two:

Some apartment buildings in Taiwan were built with radioactively contaminated steel. More than 10,000 people lived in those buildings for up to twenty years before it was discovered that the buildings were radioactive. Average dose: over 40 Rem per person. This is way higher dose than any residents, or even workers at the Fukushima site, have received. The residents of the buildings in Taiwan were all ages, shapes and sizes, encompassing old folks and even babies who spent their entire developmental lifetime and youngest years there after birth.

The residents of those apartment were found to have only 3% of the expected cancer deaths, and only 7% of the expected heart defects. The study is freely available at http://1.usa.gov/fauyt5

The authors of the study emphasize that “Information about this Taiwan experience should be communicated to the public worldwide to help allay its fear of radiation…” I agree.

Mr. Schulin is the founding editor of nuclear.com. He is a Registered Radiological Protection Technologist (NRRPT-Inactive). Since his first summer job at a nuclear plant courtesy of a professor at his college in 1977, he has worked as a technician, instructor, auditor and consultant for most of the nuclear plants in the US.

I’m feeling like Internet of Bodies is planned long-term low-dose radiation.

Twelve years later – 2012

Program Research Results

• Biological systems can actually detect and respond to very low doses of radiation

Cells not directly exposed can show a biological response to the low dose radiation exposure of neighboring cells

• Cell‐cell and cell‐matrix communication are critical in the total response to radiation, resulting in whole tissue or organism responses as compared to individual cell responses

• Qualitatively different molecular‐level responses result after low doses of radiation vs. high doses of radiation

• Many cellular and tissue‐level responses demonstrate non‐ linear responses with respect to radiation dose

• In addition to radiation‐induced DNA damage, other processes are induced by low dose radiation that participate in either increasing or deterring carcinogenesis

2000-2012 – Evolution of the Program:

  • NASA joint-funded research
  • Strong appreciation for cell microenvironment
  • Added mouse systems genetics

• Additional low dose / low dose-rate effects: • Proteomicresponses

• Immune system
• Epigenetic regulation
• Aging effects–cell/molecular endpoints

• Mathematical/risk modeling projects incorporating new radiobiology

• Funding of integrated program projects

Bruce Willis and his digital twin . . .

Published yesterday:

Two-time Emmy winner Bruce Willis can still appear in movies after selling his image rights to Deepcake, a Delaware-based company founded by Ukrainian-born CEO Maria Chmir, last year before his aphasia diagnosis.

Engineers at the AI-powered content optimization web platform created a [sic] ultra-realistic ‘digital twin’ of the actor, 67, by putting images of his face into their network.

In March the Die Hard veteran’s family shared news he was retiring from acting due to the condition, which is a neuro-cognitive disorder that effects the sufferers ability to speak and understand language.

Note: Strangely enough, I had just posted on another thread (ClassTag, Tech-Ed, Jason Olim, CDNow, Bertelsmann, Freshman Fund, Vlada Lotkina, Wharton, Boston Consulting Group, Dell Technologies, NYC, Ukraine, TechUkraine, Venture Capital in the Mid-Atlantic Region - #11 by Stephers) a Daily Mail article about a replica (of a college building) being modeled with a cake (think deep fake cake) – and by a Russian who is involved in optimization/AI. Weird.

That’s that movie “Congress” isn’t it?

@AMcD It also links back to the film, S1M0NE, which I had referenced briefly in Part 1 of my W0RLDBU1LD1NG Series:

Incidentally, I never got a chance to continue my series at POM, yet I had intended to post the following images at some point (as related to GANs) – and I think it is pertinent at this time (given the Bruce Willis “deep fake” ~ Deepcake ~ reveal):

See if you see any resemblance/resonance among these images (at the very least suggestive of a template/imprint, or implying perhaps an actual deep fake/digital twin presentation?) – notice the lips, the hair, the neckline, the attire, the colors:

From the film, S1M0NE (just as Simone asserts that she may pursue a career in politics):

From the testimony (of Ivanka Trump) to Congress regarding the January 6 “Insurrection” (invoking the Congress film above featuring Robin Wright — who sort of resembles Ivanka Trump):

Although it was reported that Ivanka Trump’s testimony occurred for about 8 hours, only about 3 minutes of said testimony was aired publicly on TV . . .

Ivanka’s testimony, which was conducted via a remote video hookup, ended around 6 p.m. ET.

“She’s answering questions,” said Rep. Bennie Thompson, D-Miss., the committee’s chairman, earlier about Ivanka, who served as senior White House advisor during her father’s presidency. She was in the West Wing on the day of the riot.

I mean, you know, not in broad, chatty terms, but she’s answering questions,” Thompson told reporters on Capitol Hill.

Something about Ivanka’s face and demeanor did not feel “human” to me . . . It kind of felt like a digital copy.

From the Deepcake website:

We ‘hired’ Digital Twin of Bruce Willis for an advertising project in Europe. This is what he said about our partnership:

"I liked the precision of my character. It’s a great opportunity for me to go back in time. The neural network was trained on content of “Die Hard” and “Fifth Element”, so my character is similar to the images of that time.

With the advent of the modern technology, I could communicate, work and participate in filming, even being on another continent. It’s a brand new and interesting experience for me, and I grateful to our team."

The deep-fake narrative is also meant to drive adoption of blockchain “web of trust” authentication in immersive reality.
