You know the movies from the Terminator movie and skynet, right?


In case you missed it , here is a trailer for one of the many movies.






Skynet is a fictional artificial neural network-based conscious group mind and artificial general superintelligence system that serves as the main antagonist of the Terminator franchise.

In the first film, it is stated that Skynet was created by Cyberdyne Systems for SAC-NORAD. When Skynet gained self-awareness, humans tried to deactivate it, prompting it to retaliate with a nuclear attack, an event known as Judgment Day. John Connor forms a human resistance against Skynet's machines in the future, which include Terminators, and ultimately leads the resistance to victory. Throughout the film series, Skynet sends various Terminator machines back in time to try to kill Connor to ensure Skynet's victory.


en.wikipedia.org...(Terminator)

Well , guess what. The military has signed a deal with Elon Musk's Spacex to use Starlink satellite broadband for testing. Just for communications.

Yeah right....




At issue will be how Starlink performs in connection with the military’s own communications systems, which are somewhat lacking in flexibility and compatibility between hardware and software. They’re also not particularly mobile, relying on large dishes mounted on trailers that can’t handle the amount of data they’re currently having to put through. Army deputy program executive officer for command, control, communications tactical Joseph Welch has compared the Army’s woefully inadequate network capacity to a “soda straw.”

However, the Army will require a whole new system of ground terminals in order to use the Starlink system, which won’t be cheap. The CRADA will evaluate the cost of that overhaul, as well as the security of data as it is transferred from Starlink satellites to ground stations.

SpaceX already has hundreds of Starlink satellites orbiting the planet. While the broadband network eventually hopes to blanket the earth in high-speed internet, it is nowhere near complete, aiming to send up as many as 42,000 satellites in total within the decade. Musk hopes to launch 1,400 satellites this year alone at a rate of 60 every two weeks and plans to begin service for some US and Canadian customers later in the year.

Just following to see how it pans out.

Btw, good luck tomorrow with the launch !

It's artificial heaven. It will emulate global consciousness by connecting everyone through technology. The problem being that many will lose touch with their natural ability to connect with each other. The natural order will be the final enemy for the emergence of a one world totalitarian technocracy.

AI will do a better job than our sorry behinds.

Look at the wonders we've done, we cant even vote correctly or listen to common sense and let a damn virus not have dumb bodies to infect and travel in...

This VIRUS IS LITERALLY AN IDIOT PATHOGEN...

If only I could build a really big "E.M.P." that would reset things once and for all?

Remember the old days? Music came on flat disks and telephones used wires.

Can't beat analogue. It is beautifully in tune with what we are, screw all those noughts and ones, I want all the bits in between too.

You know that has already happened, right.

Like, through social media?

I've labeled my home security system as Skynet, every notification from it, to my phone and watch has the label Skynet.

Is really funny, because one of my friends has worked for General Dynamics, since we got out of highschool. He doesn't think it's funny that people joke about Skynet, which gives me even more reasons to do such. LoL.

Seriously though, I'm ok with Skynet.

I'd rather fight robots, than endless infectious hordes of zombies and or aliens. Let the robot wars begin.

I wonder if skynet would have us of prepared for this economically, and educationally, maybe even technologically...

Maybe inject some logic, into the dumb statements being said, to protect egos, ( not the ones you need syrup for )

I mean, we still have 2 presidential voting processes

The Sham popular vote,
The Electoral vote, where you elect some state reps, who can change their mind half way thru... ( seems fair )

That is pretty funny, and you do have a point. Think I could take them down if they got to close with a super strong neodymium magnet?

Don't know were the ego thing is coming from, I can only guess, but how does this relate to anything about this post?

Can keep blaming Humanity. The blame game it all points back to European racism who started it all with Colonization and brainwashing programs like MK Ultra. Neither Africa or Asia was mad enough to do these things, could've left everyone else in sword and shield Age, but just had to push for it. Turned a blind eye since Opium War to WW2.

Skynet, eh. How about Blackjack...

DARPA Blackjack



DARPA to begin new effort to build military constellations in low Earth orbit

A Pentagon experiment to process the torrent of data from space



The Defense Innovation Unit has selected Ball Aerospace and Microsoft to demonstrate how cloud processing can handle the torrent of data that would produced by a distributed constellation of small satellites in low-Earth orbit.



DARPA has been quietly working for some time through its Project Blackjack to demonstrate the technology necessary for such a massive constellation for years, and in March the Pentagon established the Space Development Agency specifically to design and coordinate that proliferated LEO constellation.


DARPA assembling team of Blackjack players


[...]Blackjack is trying to prove the utility of commercial space mega-constellations and low-cost satellites in military systems. The plan is to take commercial buses and match them with military payloads. DARPA said its goal is to launch a small experimental constellation of up to 20 satellites to test the concept.



The first two payload awards were made to Raytheon in December and Trident Technologies in January.



Mandy Vaughn, president of Vox Space, had a few cautionary words fo Blackjack program manager Paul “Rusty” Thomas.

“Blackjack is a great way to be able to easily show that five to 10 satellites can be on the ground ready to go and deployed on a meaningfully operational timeline,” she said. But she worries that DARPA may be adding too much complexity to the program. “I’m nervous watching it and thinking, ‘We don’t need to have a self healing, self aware completely autonomous omniscient constellation for us to be able to show that the basis of the concept of operations can work.”



Thomas, reacting to Vaughn’s comments, said DARPA does not intend for Blackjack to become a “requirements program” and that the project will continue to be the “poster child for government leveraging” of commercial technology.


Blackjack Program - Mr. Paul “Rusty” Thomas


DARPA’s Blackjack program aims to develop and demonstrate the critical elements for a global high-speed network in low Earth orbit (LEO) that provides the Department of Defense with highly connected, resilient, and persistent coverage.


DARPA Blackjack: Who’ll Get Prized Satellite Tech, Air Force Or SDA?


Large networks of small, cheap satellites derived from commercial technology would be harder for China or Russia to kill than a handful of expensive, exquisite military-unique birds. But who gets to build it?

Show Me The Money


Right now it’s hard to say where Blackjack will end up, as neither SMC’s CASINO nor SDA actually have dedicated funding to take it over.



Blackjack Pit Boss [PDF]
Pit Boss is a constellation-level autonomous functionality suite. It can be viewed as a collection of data services hosted aboard on-orbit processors on Blackjack functional layer nodes, or – at a higher level of abstraction – as a space-based data cloud service.

SEAKR Awarded Pit Boss Contract To Develop Advanced Processing For DARPA’s Blackjack Program


SEAKR has been awarded a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Pit Boss contract supporting the Blackjack Proliferated Low Earth Orbit Demonstration Program. Key contributors to SEAKR’s Pit Boss effort are Microsoft, Applied Technology Associates (ATA), Advanced Solutions Inc. (ASI), Kythera Space Solutions and NKrypt.

Currently, most of the data that traverses the Internet is beneath the ocean but in the coming years will also be in a JEDI Space Cloud. As above, so below.

Worth a try.

I'm going with thermite. Between your idea and mine, we stand at least a half chance. LoL



a reply to: EndtheMadnessNow

I'm certain "Space Force" will be the lucky winner of the tech.
Primary branch for all space operations.
Like Space to Air and or Ground.

Air Force will evolve to become an Atmosphere based branch, allowing for air to air and air to surface support operations.

As well as air to space capabilities.

Yeah, I'm gonna say that I never believed the nonsensical cover story for Starlink in the first place. I knew something was up when they started deploying that many satellites with such a flimsy excuse as they gave. Nobody spends that much time, effort or money on such a massive gamble as the stated purpose of Starlink. And also, I don't believe for a second the government would be just fine with him launching all those into orbit unless they had a very long talk with him and came to a very clear understanding with him.

Something is up with that. Something has been up with that from the get go. And the timing is just right in your face, huh?

Is that pre or post nuclear annihilation?


I keep saying... There is something in a name and always has been. Why does everything seemingly important always tend to host a biblical name or reference?

7 Headed Beast - 7 Seated 'Dragon'
Elon has 3 crowns in the way that he has citizenship from 3 countries.
Elon means Oak Tree and also
Elon was of the Tribe of Zebulun who served as a judge of Israel for ten years (bible)
- Succeeded by Abdon (Abaddon?)
(I HATE to address this but IF there was some spiritual connection to Elon, I have to for only that reason) - First child was still birth. Significance unknown. (carried off to protect it from the dragon?)

Musk - Old French origins. Introduced into England after the famous Norman Conquest of 1066. The derivation is from word mesch meaning MAN, and was originally a nickname to distinguish a younger person usually a SON, from an older bearer of the name.

Amios - Supercomputer that will help battle Covid 19
- Amos? Biblically means 'borne by God'. It also means 'uncertain' origin in Hebrew

Blue Origin - New Shepard
- I don't need to say anything about this one. It pretty much says it on it's own. Ok - Maybe add - "Kachina"?
- Bezos named his company Amazon because it started with an A. Alpha?

Are these names simply a mockery? Are they possibly fulfilling prophecy by their own sillyness or use of biblical names?

Could be something to it... maybe?

We can add GATES and TRUMP to that list and possibly quite a few more. I don't know why, I just have this thing for name relation. It seems to connect to spiritual matters.


I'm not saying Elon is the anti-christ. Though, he doesn't believe in God. I actually like the guy. It would truely suck if he was the debbil!

I always thought Google is/would be the next sky net. Musk makes more sense, IF he's not to be trusted.

Simple

Humans aren't always able to see the forest from the trees.
And will not always do the right thing, in favor of saving face ( hence the go talk )
So we have issues where problems are created, where a logical aspect of control, would have not had a problem in the 1st place.

In more understand terms: ( Humans are pretty dumb still, emotionally, and unable to do what is needed )
Egos almost always come before beneficial policy changes

I like to look at anagrams of people's names.

The best I could come up with For Elon Musk: Molek Sun or Sun Molek.

Make of that what you will.
