Just when you thought the insanity of the modern age could not possibly get any kookier, along comes another billionaire busybody with another billionaire busybody-pet-project to make life more miserable for the bulk of humanity. But of course, that’s not what he’s saying. No, this time the “selling point” is even crazier than that, according to this article shared by G.L.R.:

Elon Musk Launches Company To Hook Up People To Computers

By this juncture, I’m certain most readers of this website, and of my book Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas co-authored with my friend Scott deHart, are aware of the transhumanists’ plans to merge man and computer, to download and upload “personalities” from one clone to another, and, for the really ambitious, to skip the cloning part altogether and just “live inside a computer.”

What could go wrong?

Well, I can think of a whole lot of things that could go  wrong; taking but one possibility from recent news memes from the lamestream corporate controlled media, this would obviously open up the whole procedure to the Evil Criminal Mastermind Supergenius Dr. Fu Manchu    Vladimir Putin and the always-byzantine-never-to-be-trusted-Russians-who-are-behind-all-the-hacking-in-the-world.

Apparently, however, Mr. Musk has thought of a couple of new “selling points” for the whole cyborg agenda:

In case revolutionizing the transportation and energy industries while colonizing Mars wasn’t enough of a challenge for Elon Musk (or perhaps taxpayer subsidies for Musk’s ventures in those fields have dried up) in his latest venture the billionaire entrepreneur now “wants to merge computers with human brains to help people keep up with machines.” Specifically, the WSJ has uncovered that Musk has launched another company called Neuralink, which is pursuing what Musk calls “neural lace” technology, which is shorthand for a brain-computer interface and consists of implanting tiny brain electrodes that will one day be able upload and download thoughts. (Emphasis added)

And if “keeping up with machines” isn’t specific enough, it’s spelled out more specifically. First, there’s the predictable “health benefit”, followed quickly by avoiding slavery to machines:

And, the WSJ notes, somewhere in his packed schedule, he has found time to start a neuroscience company that plans to develop cranial computers, most likely to treat intractable brain diseases first, but later to help humanity avoid subjugation at the hands of intelligent machines.

Of course, the article continues by detailing the current benefits of neural implants in combating various neurological disorders, and notes that the “neural lace” and “virtual immortality” are a long ways away.

But my high octane speculation of the day concerns the selling point, for I suspect Musk has hit upon something that the vast majority of the public would buy into, notwithstanding the dangers that become apparent on just a little reflection on that selling point. Basically, that selling point boils down to “Buy our neural lace and protect yourself from rogue AI(s).” Presumably, however, if one wants to download and upload things to and from that neural lace, one has to be connected to some kind of network, and with that comes precisely the danger of “rogue AI,” not to mention the Evil Criminal Mastermind Supergenius Dr. Fu Manchu    Vladimir Putin and the always-byzantine-never-to-be-trusted-Russians-who-are-behind-all-the-hacking-in-the-world. And all they would have to do to break down communications completely would be to implant a “Babel virus” to have us all making up our own pronouns and defining words any way we choose without regard to prior common usage.

Just a thought.

See you on the flip side.

Space News: NASA’s EM [Warp] Drive Paper Says It Works, Musk Wants To…

November 19, 2016

To say that the last two weeks have been an incredible period for news would be putting it mildly, by almost anyone’s criteria. One of the most interesting stories – well, interesting to me at least – was that indicating the President-elect plans to reorient NASA from its current Low Earth Orbit mission orientation to a new deep-space, long-term human exploration mission. In this, there was nothing really that new. Previous presidents have tried to do this, beginning with the administration of G.H.W. Bush, which was then revived under his son G.W. Bush, and even President Obama made a couple of attempts to reorient NASA; none of the efforts were really successful. However, it should also be remembered that DARPA, or as we affectionately refer to it here (following a suggestion of Mr. J.B.), the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency, announced during the second Obama administration a goal to make the United States “warp capable” in 100 years. So, quietly, even during the “space quiescent” administrations of Bush II and Obama, space has quietly been pushing along. The current President-elect however seems to have more than just a mission-reorientation in mind, but has actually proposed a bureaucratic reshuffling that would transfer low earth orbit oriented missions to other departments of the federal government, thus freeing NASA for the longer-term deep space missions. From a purely political and bureaucratic point of view, this would seem to make some sense.

All that is context, in my high octane speculation playbook, for a few other stories that emerged in the last couple of weeks that indicate that something, indeed, may be “up” with space matters. There’s three stories in particular that regular readers here brought to my attention, that I’d like to pass along, together with my usual high octane, or in this case, orbital speculations:

SpaceX wants to launch 4,425 satellites into space to bring super-fast internet to the world

Leaked NASA paper shows the ‘impossible’ EM Drive really does work

Documents/The Artificial Inducement of Space Warp

That’s quite a list, so let’s begin at the first article, and SpaceX’s Elon Musk’s plans to launch over 4,000 satellites to “bring superfast internet to the world.” There are three paragraphs here that draw our attention. According to Arjun Kharpal, author of the CNBN article on Musk’s plans, this plan is presented in a filing with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission):

SpaceX – the company on a mission to colonize Mars – outlined plans to put 4,425 satellites into space in a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) filing from earlier this week.

That’s three times the 1,419 satellites that are currently in space, according to the Union of Concerned Scientists, a not-for-profit group made up of scientists across the world.

Once “fully optimized”, the system will be able to provide bandwith of 1 gigabytes per second for users globally. That’s over 180 times faster than the current global internet speed average of 5.6 megabytes per second which was recorded in the Akamai State of the Internet report at the end of last year.

Reports earlier this year suggested Google and Fidelity had invested $1 billion into SpaceX to support the satellite project.

As noted, Musk has presented formal filings to the FCC, and has heavyweight backers in the form of Google and Fidelity for high-speed internet development. The question is why? Here I find myself in agreement with former HUD Assistant Secretary Catherine Fitts, in that this built out is in part a massive project designed to preserve US dollar reserve currency status, and this project can be, and I strongly suspect is enhanced by the offer of rebates on internet devices, smart phones, and so on, denominated in dollars. There is, however, a deeper agenda here, and I suspect most regular readers here already see what it is: such a massive build-out also implies building massive redundancy into the international financial clearing systems, which are currently rather centralized, and hence, easily targetable, as much of that system currently flows through SWIFT (Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Transfer) in Belgium, and CHIPS (Clearing House Interbank Payments System). Decentralizing such systems, using other database management systems, builds a measure of security into the clearing system that is much needed, especially against potential threats. The question is, why now? Why the push to globalize such systems and to build in redundancy? The short answer is, such moves are only undertaken when long term strategic planning indicates potential conflict on the horizon. Here the question is, with whom?

I suggest the answer is suggested from the space context itself, which brings us to the recent announcements concerning NASA’s tests of the EM drive, which produces thrust from microwave reflections and interferometry within a shaped, conical cavity. While I’ve blogged about this story before, I want to draw the readers’ attention to something very interesting that appeared in the second article linked above, by Fiona MacDonald; first, note the numbers:

Last year, NASA’s Eagleworks Laboratory got involved to try to independently verify or debunk the EM Drive once and for all. And a new paper on its tests in late 2015 has just been leaked, showing that not only does the EM Drive work – it also generates some pretty impressive thrust.

To be clear, despite rumours that a NASA paper on these tests has passed the peer-review process, the version that’s been leaked hasn’t been published in an academic journal. So, for now, this is just one group of researchers reporting on their results, without any external verification.

But the paper concludes that, after error measurements have been accounted for, the EM Drive generates force of 1.2 millinewtons per kilowatt in a vacuum.

That’s not an insignificant amount – to put it into perspective, the super-powerful Hall thruster generates force of 60 millinewtons per kilowatt, an order of magnitude more than the EM Drive.

But that’s not what caught my eye. What caught my eye were these statements:

“The test campaign included a null thrust test effort to identify any mundane sources of impulsive thrust, however none were identified,” the team, led by Harold White, concluded in the paper.

“Thrust data from forward, reverse, and null suggests that the system is consistently performing with a thrust to power ratio of 1.2 ± 0.1 millinewtons per kilowatt.”(Emphasis added)

Yes, you read that correctly, the NASA team testing the EM drive and performing these tests was led by Dr. Harold White, that’s Dr. Harold “Sonny” White, of NASA’s warp drive project fame. Readers here will recall my previous blogs about Dr. White, for it was Dr. White who, by reworking the metric of Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre’s 1990s warp drive paper, came up with the breathtaking conclusion that the vast mass-energy conversion needed in Alcubierre’s paper – a mass-energy conversion factor on the scale of the planet Jupiter, and hence impractical as a potential human technology – was far too large, and that the actual mass-energy conversion factor was much smaller, and conceivably within reach to human science in, say, a hundred years or so. It was because of Dr. White’s reworking of that paper that DARPA came out with its 100 year warp drive goal in the first place, and additionally, that NASA placed White in charge of designing the initial proof of concept experiments for his re-working of Alcubierre’s metric. All this places his participation in the EM drive tests into a different light, for what is being suggested is that the EM drive may have some very minor space-warping properties. Now, this isn’t a big surprise to those of us who have been following the work of the late Gabriel Kron, the Hungarian electronics engineering genius who first told us that all electrical devices, no matter how simple, can be derived from the generalized equations of electromagnetism by specific applications of tensor calculus and hyper-dimensional operators. In essence, what Kron was saying was that all devices of an electric nature are both hyper-dimensional, and produce minute modifications of the lattice of space-time. In short, space warps.

Which brings us to the… oh, by the way, did you notice the date of Ms. MacDonald’s article? Nov. 7, 2016, a day before the US general election, which has given us a President-elect who’s talking about deep solar system manned explorations, and oh, who, by the way, had an uncle who was a Professor at MIT, John Trump, who according to some internet stories was tasked with looking at the late papers of Nikola Tesla…. Talk about things that make you go “Hmmmm….” At the minimum, the presence of this particular technologically-inclined Trump in the stump of the Trump tree means that the current President-elect, unlike almost all previous presidents, may have a unique family insight into technological history, and perhaps even into some very secretive aspects of it, a definite advantage over his predecessors.

Which brings us to the third article about a small “start up” company in Nebraska that has been doing simple warp-field tests, using (here it comes) interferometry, electrical tri-poles, and measurement by laser red-shift effects. You’ll note that the context here is Einstein’s general relativity, and this requires some basic explanation. In the theory of General Relativity, large masses such as stars or planets literally “warp” the lattice structure of space time, in a fashion similar to placing a large bowling ball or medical ball on a trampoline that one has drawn a grid work of squares on. Placing the ball on the trampoline compresses that lattice work by appearing to stretch it in the region immediately surrounding the ball. This is of course a two dimensional representation, so one has to imagine an infinite series of such planes each in touch with a point on the ball, and you get the idea. The trouble is, in General Relativity, it can work in both directions: a large mass can distort that local lattice work, or a distorted local lattice work can create the effect of the presence of a large mass, i.e., gravity. What’s interesting here is that physicists appear to be discovering, through careful manipulation of such effects electromagnetically, which physicists, including Einstein, long suspected, namely, that there’s some relationship between gravity and electromagnetism. What I find intriguing about these experiments is twofold: First…

Facebook’s Latest $200 Million Spying Technology Just Blew Up On Space X

Source: TheMindUnleashed.org
Christina Sarich
September , 2016

We could bemoan the fact that Elon Musk’s recyclable rocket ship just experienced a set back, or rejoice that the recent Space X rocket explosion also just destroyed a $200 million-dollar satellite technology developed by Facebook, presumably to spy on the earth’s credulous inhabitants.

Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s developer, says that he is ‘deeply disappointed’ in the recent explosion, but that he will forge ahead with a technology meant to ‘bring the Internet to remote rural areas such as in Africa.’ Is Zuckerberg’s technology really a boon to society, or is it tainted with the same baleful ‘philanthropic’ disease as projects like those of Bill Gates and his Foundation – another billionaire with ample assets to control the world?

Though the social media platform has promised users it will alert them if they are being eavesdropped on by the government with ‘state sponsored spies,’ FB users have increasingly reported being vocally castigated for posting certain anti-government sentiments. Numerous people have screen shots of posts being pulled or ‘likes’ being altered – of outright censorship by Facebook, itself.

In another post, Zuckerberg seems to flatly deny overt cooperation with the NSA, or other spying entities in one breath, and practically admits cooperation with America’s clandestine surveillance program in another:

“I want to respond personally to the outrageous press reports about PRISM:

Facebook is not and has never been part of any program to give the US or any other government direct access to our servers. We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received. And if we did, we would fight it aggressively. We hadn’t even heard of PRISM before yesterday.

When governments ask Facebook for data, we review each request carefully to make sure they always follow the correct processes and all applicable laws, and then only provide the information if is required by law. We will continue fighting aggressively to keep your information safe and secure.

We strongly encourage all governments to be much more transparent about all programs aimed at keeping the public safe. It’s the only way to protect everyone’s civil liberties and create the safe and free society we all want over the long term.”

Notice he reiterates the word ‘safe’ a number of times, but how can we be safe with a vast spying network being launched into space by a private entity listening in even to our phone conversations?

Is Facebook Spying on You?

Some users of Facebook have reported themes of conversation on their smart phones showing up in ads just hours after having a conversation related to the topics discussed.

One participant in a study which was trying to find out just how invasive social media can be said:

“It’s so creepy, it’s so creepy, I mean, for anyone to say it’s not creepy is just fooling themselves, it’s beyond what I ever thought I would see.”

For example, if a student discussed ordering food to take home or their favorite alcoholic drinks, those specific products would show up in the FB feed.

Facebook flatly denies using such technology, issuing a statement saying, “Facebook and Instagram do not use microphone audio to inform advertising in any way. Businesses are however able to serve relevant ads to people based on other aspects, such as their age, their city, and their interests.”

Zuckerberg does admit with enthusiasm, though, that FB is developing a form of artificial intelligence (AI) called ‘Deep Learning’ that can recognize you from pictures you post, even if you aren’t in them, giving your location, and other private information to whomever they please.

The AI, FB combo is beyond unsettling. As Wired recently reported, “Deep learning provides a more effective means of analyzing your most personal of habits. “What Facebook can do with deep learning is unlimited,” says Abdel-rahman Mohamed, who worked on similar AI research at the University of Toronto. “Every day, Facebook is collecting the network of relationships between people. It’s getting your activity over the course of the day. It knows how you vote — Democrat or Republican. It knows what products you buy.””

No matter how Zuckerberg spins his true intentions, stating that he “has developed other technologies like Aquila that will connect people as well,” the truth is that even in the most remote places of the world, there will be fewer personal freedoms.

How do you control an entire planet? You control their means of expression – their open communication. Facebook has already manufactured consent with a means to “amuse ourselves to death,” as Walter Lippmann would say. There are 1.71 billion active monthly users. Who among us hasn’t had issues with Facebook insinuating its corporate aims into our feed?

Propaganda imposed upon us by an elite media, and regulated by private companies like Facebook who are now editing our posts without our permission only add to a system of indoctrinated compliance.

Social media may be controlled by algorithms, but it is also controlling our opinions of democracy, war, and genocide. It is controlling what evidence we see of false flags, and tries to alter our opinions of presidential candidates.

Where once mainstream news had open conversations about controversial topics, but increasingly became silenced by a few companies controlling big-budget advertising campaigns, we now see a similar phenomenon happening on social media platforms.

When only four companies currently own almost everything in the world, do we really think Facebook’s space-satellite is meant for ‘connecting every single person,’ as Zuckerberg states, or is it just another means to lock down the inmates on this blue-green planet? At least for now, Zuckerberg’s plans have been spoiled. Thanks to the Space-X explosion, $200 million dollars’ worth of satellite spying technology is little more than rubble.

Google’s AI Kill Switch

GOOGLE’S AI KILL SWITCH

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell
June 15, 2016

One of my favorite television series is Person of Interest, which has – to say the least – a very contemporary story line. In it, the inventor of a massive AI datamining and surveillance operation, Harold Finch, has created this program for post-9/11 monitoring of potential terrorist activities. Mr. Finch has built a back-door into his own program, allowing him to use it to intervene in the lives of private individuals facing difficulties. And, as a means of being able to control his creation, he has built in his own kill switch, a program that shuts his machine off every 24 hours and wipes its memory, to prevent it from going out of control.

THe trouble is, in the series, another friend of his has built a similar program called Samaritan, but this is stolen by a rogue MI-6 intelligence agent, who removes the kill switch, allowing Samaritan to grow and grow, and mount a cyber war against Finch’s machine.

Well, art imitates life, as they saying goes, and in this case, it may be a little closer to home than we imagine, but we’ll get back to that. In this case, the following article was shared by Ms. K.M., a regular reader and contributor of articles for review here. And in this case, it’s a whopper doozie:

Google is working on a kill switch to prevent an AI uprising

The crux of the matter is addressed right up front:
