Andy Warhol

A leading figure in the pop art movement, Warhol is considered one of the most important American artists of the second half of the 20th century. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, advertising, and celebrity culture that flourished by the 1960s -- wikipedia.

Volodymyr Zelensky

"Ukrainian actor and comedian who was elected president of Ukraine in 2019. Although he was a political novice, Zelensky’s anti-corruption platform won him widespread support, and his significant online following translated into a solid electoral base" --

Donald Trump

His opponents focus on his low-end range, his boosters on the high-end. Sensible people see a mixture of integrity and non-integrity, but where does it land overall? Calibration shows the current average.

Justin Trudeau

Canada's Prime Minister. "At one point, people are going to have to realize that maybe I know what I'm doing" -- Justin Trudeau.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO)

"His government instituted direct payments to tens of millions of Mexicans living below the poverty level, raised the minimum wage, and enacted labour reform... However, he proved to be more of a populist than a progressive" --

Joe Biden

"January 6th and the lies about the 2020 election, and the plots to steal the election, posed the gravest threat to our democracy since the Civil War" -- Biden's 2024 State of the Union address. Interestingly, either political party could agree this, but for different reasons.

"The leader of the world's most populated country and second largest economy (GDP), Xi Jinping holds a firm grasp on China's only political party" --

Vladimir Putin

cal. 190 in TvF. 'The Russian president has on numerous occasions presented himself as a staunch defender of the Christian faith from the “Satanic” West' -- This is evidently the inflation of Messianic narcissism, including psychological projection of his own corrupt motives.

(1947–2024) His personal calibration and a calibration of whether he killed two people.

Slobodan Milosevic

Laid the ideological foundations for the slaughter of Bosnian Muslims and other former-Yugoslavians in the 1990s. Died in 2006 while being prosecuted for war crimes. Calibrated at 130 in TvF.

Rupert Spira

"He suggests that a form of happiness, a satisfying if unexotic 'enlightenment', can be found if one can identify with the I that lies behind the imagined I of feelings and thoughts" -- wikipedia.

Rupert Sheldrake

"I suggest that morphogenetic fields work by imposing patterns on otherwise random or indeterminate patterns of activity... I propose that that they are transmitted from past members of the species through a kind of non-local resonance, called morphic resonance" -- Rupert Sheldrake.
