Handling Weather Broadcasts


Something has always bothered me about how the 24/7 Weather Channel and other television networks report on so-called “superstorms” and other extreme-weather events. I always change the channel because it’s no different than presenting a detailed, drawn-out, graphic description of the symptoms of some dreadfully “incurable” disease. First of all, the use of words that are constantly breaking the first commandment by describing the storm in all its detail over and over again to hundreds of millions of viewers who do not know Science. This creates, almost instantly, a majority of malpracticers who are obliviously viewing the storm as malicious mind (personal sense) views it.

Secondly, the idolatry of force-fed satellite images and computer-generated “vines” (videos that are only a few seconds long repeated over and over again for dramatic effect) depicting the size of the storm, with its pulsing image obstinately (and unnaturally) stationary: more audience-titillating emotional binging on the “reality” of the storm’s Goliath-like proportions. Adding to the aggressiveness of the hurricane suggestion are the climate-change believers, who always appear to be so desperate to see their apocalyptic dreams come true.

While we can certainly be thankful for this technology, its overuse is simply wrong because it is malpracticing on planet Earth: technologically enabled malpractice — unprecedented in the history of broadcasting until only very recently — and it only serves to strengthen storms (such as Sandy a few years ago). This is the additional, supplementary evil that goes far beyond the simple reporting of a storm — mass-mesmerism — and it needs to be thoroughly neutralized.
