Gimel's Gate!

by Mississippi Sound 

 As my reference for the Hebraic months one book I like to gain wisdom from is A Time to Advance by: Chuck D. Pierce with Robert and Linda Heidler. I want to share some nuggets about this month from this book. The Hebraic month of Cheshvan that began yesterday October 7th.

  • The Hebraic letter for this month is: NUN - symbolizes the Messiah

  • The Tribe is: Manasseh - to forget, to leap, up and away

  • The month of Messiah: The number '8' signifies eternal revelation and new beginning

  • Constellation: Scorpio (the scorpion) - tread on serpents and scorpions

"Cheshvan is the only month which has no holidays. Jews believe this month is "reserved" for the time of Messiah, who will inaugurate the third Temple in Cheshvan. Cheshvan is the eight of the twelve months of the Jewish calendar. The number "8" signifies eternal revelation and new beginning." 

"This Month is a time to allow the fragrance of God to begin to permeate your soulish nature. Many people with a Greek mindset think that God is dealing only with spiritual issues, and they do not make the connection of body, soul, and spirit. God sanctifies us spirit, soul and body. The Jews believe the soul responds in this month in unusual ways. This is a month to smell the awe of God and a month when the fragrance of the Holy Spirit begins to emanate so a move of Holy Spirit can begin." 

"Being a Christian doesn't exempt us from going through bad times. However, as we present ourselves as living sacrifices to God, we are transformed by the renewing of our mind in Christ. If you are in the world and you are a child of the world, which means you are a son of Belial, all you can do is conform to the image of the world. If you live in the image of Christ with the blood of Jesus flowing through you to purge your soul, you cannot be conformed to the world. This is a time to activate your ability to dissect and assimilate things. Begin moving in new revelation, and you will be digesting and assimilating God's wisdom and truth."

"War with your world this month. Words that are not spoken correctly go into the inward parts of your stomach. Lots of stomach problems are the result of receiving wrong words. You should yell from your inner being, "I am satisfied;" and push out anything in you that is dissatisfied." 

"The constellation associated with Cheshvan is Scorpio. The scorpion and snake are symbols of this month. We need to understand the snake of Eden. But God has given us authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, so this is a key month to stand in your authority."

"Cheshvan is reserved for the anointing in which God pulls you aside to draw a new anointing out of you. This can be an easy month or a hard month because He must press the anointing out of you. Cry out for the anointing to get pressed out of you. Satan wants to get the upper hand, but this is the time to plant your heel on the enemy's plan to transform you into his image. Instead as you deal with your trials and difficulties through the anointing, you will be changed into Christ's image. Revelation should be so abounding in you this month that you flow in the supernatural dimension. If you are moving in revelation and the anointing, you will gain the upper hand on Satan."


Cryptocabulary: Wringing More Freedom Out of Blockchains zk-SNARKS Protocols

by πd Piper

One of the beauties about blockchain technology is the level of anonymity it provides p2p engagements on-chain. It is private and secure.

You give me your wallet address, and I send crypto to that address. Done. End of story. No record of names, social security numbers, drivers license, or physical locations-just two addresses, sender and receiver, and the change reflected on the blockchain ledger showing the transaction.

It's permissionless, and it's beautifully simple. It's freedom. That's why we love it.
But the pathway to get to this place, is not necessarily so.

How did you buy your first crypto coin? If you're like me, you signed up on an exchange, centralized or decentralized, and provided some pretty personal private information (PPI) in order to engage in buying or selling on the exchange. Right?

Pretty much every exchange has a Know-Your-Customer (KYC) policy, and they vary on the amount and kind of information they require from you in order for you to use their services.

Moreover, if you were like me, you probably felt a little wooziness in the stomach providing that information for the first time. Maybe you felt safe, but certainly not private.

Now every transaction you do on that exchange is tied to your PPI, including that connected bank account that you use for the wire transfer.  If your glass is half-full, It's called exposure. Transparency for all those who just don't care.

The point is, in order to enjoy the beauty of private and secure transactions that blockchain can give you, you have to give up privacy in order to get privacy.

Wait? What?!

Exactly. It seems a bit snarky, and sure doesn't make sense.

But this is where zk-SNARKS protocols come into play. zk-SNARKS stands for Zero Knowledge-Succinct Non-interactive Argument of Knowledge. It’s a zero knowledge proof protocol that enables a party to prove to the other party the verity (truth) of a statement (transaction) without revealing any information beyond the validity of the statement itself. It takes a few milliseconds to verify the proof.  Zk-SNARKs is the strongest privacy protocol in the crypto sphere. You can learn how it works here.

There a few blockchain DAOs already running on this protocol. zCash (ZEC), Monero (XMR), and Pirate Chain (ARRR), are a few examples.

So how does zk-SNARKS work? In the case of Pirate Chain:

"For privacy reasons, all ARRR addresses are by default protected z-addresses only, and all transactions are exceptionally z-transactions. Meaning that the balance of each address is visible solely to its user. Pirate Chain provides no-trace transactions, meaning that no one can track the transactions since there is no trace beyond its user’s wallet. Users’ privacy is further protected through embedded Tor network compatibility."

"As for blockchain security, it implements a Proof-of-Work algorithm offered by Komodo. Delayed Proof of Work indexes Pirate Chain’s blockchain onto Komodo and Bitcoin blockchains. So, in case someone tries to attack Pirate’s blockchain, they’ll need to overcome Komodo and Bitcoin Blockchains first, which is practically impossible."

These blockchains are not as mainstream as BTC or ETH, and there are a few hoops to jump through. But if you're looking for a way to leverage greater privacy with cryptocurrency transactions, this is one of the ways to do it. Each of the DAOs linked above provide tutorials and guides to help with the on-boarding experience.

Most people invested in crypto will continue to use the wider roads--willing to forgo some level of privacy for the sake of simple and easy. It's understandable.

So the winding narrow paths of zk-SNARKS protocol based blockchains will remain a road less traveled, perhaps, for those more adventurous--those seeking to wring the most freedom out of life that they can.

Snoopy Scoop!

by Boston C!

  • The “Mandate of Heaven” in Jeopardy? President Xi Jinping could quickly lose what the Chinese call “the Mandate of Heaven.” That’s a term that describes the intangible goodwill and popular support needed by emperors to rule China for the past 3,000 years. If the Mandate of Heaven is lost, a ruler can fall quickly. Boston C! feels a little prophesy on this article. Have a snoopy look! I'm seeing my foot crushing the head of a snake! What say you?

  • Counsel of sententia - "Always be mindful that you are a Spirit with a Soul living in a Body and so, function accordingly"  ~ Boston C!

  • Switch on your Brain by Dr. Caroline Leaf. I am learning how to function and imagine how my four brains operate and how the head brain, heart brain, belly brain and body brain are all interconnected. I'm re-reading Dr. Leaf's book which I highly recommend. Although she doesn't use four brain language however, I love how she teaches and trains and ties the science and meta-physical on how we can change the way we think and renew the mind from a scientific and spiritual perspective.

  • I'll share a paraphrased commentary and musings in future newsletters. In the meantime, I'm very focused on my thought life and keeping a consistent Above The Sun attitude in all things. Be inspired today! Up and away!
