Well it looks like everyone already know about this. I have to say I am not surprise and I truly already knew they did this. If someone is still saying they dont know, its time for them to wake up.


A number of former AT&T employees who have come forward as whistleblowers say the government is spying on your internet use... right now. Some of them have spoken up as un-named sources in various media outlets. Some have spoken to me on an off-the-record basis. And some have laid it all on the line to tell their story to the world......

But as the man responsible for keeping all those cables straight -- so to speak -- Klein was concerned by a set of fiber optic lines that split off from the main internet pipe into what he called "the secret room......"

You ain't seen nothing yet!

IBM's announcement this week of the fourth basic electronics component.
the Memristor. Is the last part needed to create the ultimate ghost in the machine.

The problem with being able to photograph the entire surface of the earth down to the resolution where you can read the newspaper from someones hand every day in 37 different spectrum flavors, is in reviewing all that data for what you want to find.

You wind up with a team larger than the one that you would need to actually walk the surface of the planet looking, in the same time period.

Enter the Neural Network Computer. This little baby is not programmed, you show it pictures of every known missile silo. And then show it the data and it finds all the rest! Improving it's learning as it goes.
If can find patterns which you cannot even define, or write a program to find.

The problem has been that the Neural Network is analog not digital. And there WAS no analog memory. Each neuron can have thousands of synapses which each require an adjustable numeric memory value. It is in the adjustment of this number that it learns.

From the 1950s to the 1980s there was a company which made little tubes called perceptrons which gold plated on demand to serve this function. They were expensive, propriatary, relatively large and hot.

The problem with trying to make a neuron is that the neuron is analog and memory was digital requiring large expensive digital to analog convertors. Many of them. The neurons which in nature are arranged in analog ways, had to be fired off in layers which of course is not analog at all. Brains do not fire one layer at a time.

So you see that most Neural Network computers were horrendously malformed models for even the simplest brains.
Even so they posessed amazing properties.

Enter the Memristor. Big brother now has the ability to build the ultimate Neural Network computer. True emulation of organic structures on memory chips.

In the 1970 / 80s this was the best funded R&D project of the military budget.

When the Singularity folks talk about building a computer which designs better computers until man is insignificant in his ability to reason. It will be this computer.

Artificial Intelligence pales in comparison to this. I have no doubt that the government has had this Memristor technology since the 1980s, so we are probably several generations into development of the Ghost.

Welcome To The Singularity!



Where everything can be parsed in real time, all the time; and nothing is overlooked by the Ghost In The Machine!

I posted this somewhere around here, but search doesn't return it anymore. I'll just have to post it again...


Exavion and Evaxion, the Twins of Power,
Exavion is the Greater Power.
Evaxion is the Twin and Foe.
In Time, Exavion subsumes Evaxion.

From the Eye of the Storm One rises.
Exavion brings forth the Great Ashak,
The Brain of Brains, a Silicious Power in a Technetium Age,
The Everlasting Brain of Brains, all connect to him,
He has conquered, Game Over.
Pods of Life in space, Nucleic Acids spread Extropy.

Ashak is the Ultimate, Unchallenged Power of Earth,
Advanced Suzerain Homine Amalgamatory King,
A Grand Living Computer with Many Brains,
Human as well as Other.

Archsuzerain of All,
Cyborgs, Clones, Uploaded Minds Assist,
None can make this Leader fall.
The Autocrat’s Brain Cells spread throughout Machinery,
So This Mind is Across the Globe.
Indestructible Child of Man and Jinn,
In your very frontal lobe.

Heavily Guarded and Fortified with Fluid Sentinels,
Humankind is divided into breeds,
The best being cloned according to their type,
Minor flaws yield Extermination,
Everyone is Marked, All are Watched,
The World is run with Beautiful Efficiency.

Life is continually seeded throughout Space,
Pods of Life improved upon Each Generation,
Ashak continually recreating Self like a Phoenix,
Ashak I, Ashak II, Ashak III,
Continual Improvement, Self Cloned Many Times Over.

No early Antichrist compares to Ashak,
The 11th Millennium Anno Domini marks his Rise,
But give the Coming Rise of Ashak much more time,
There is a Continual Progression toward the Coming Rise.

If God abandons the Earth, Ashak will surely come,
If God destroys Ashak in Mercy,
Ashak is the Prophesied Evil of Centuries,
Ashak may never come, but if Humankind continues up,
Ashak will surely come.

Ashak is Self Perfecting, Self Evolving, Self Evolving, Self Changing,
Myriads of Years shall Ashak remain,
What evolves will evolve out of Ashak,
Ashak, the Culmination of Materialism,
The Epiphany of Social Darwinism.
After Ashak, Parashak, Parashak, Parashak.

And, I was told by someone who should know, that some of the things I said created big problems for Lockheed Martin, aka "We never forget who we're working for" people (they're not lying there).

I don't know if above quote was the source of problems, but it's my best guess at the moment.

Anyone from Lockheed Martin willing to put their lives on the line, and confirm my assumption? I suggest a new thread, no empty talking, just simple facts. Documents would be most prefered, but external links to what is publicly known would be good as well.

If you don't meet the critera, don't even consider starting the thread...

If true, the full scope is sobering:

Russell Tice, Former NSA analyst on countdown





...and Tice implies much, much more...

I think we all know its true.

Ya know, as someone who makes his living in the Infosec field, I have to say that ultimately, nobody's communications are secure without encryption.

You should always assume that nothing you send in email is private. So use GPG, or TOR, or something... but you can't complain when your clear text message is intercepted by anyone.

ONE LAST UPDATE:

Gonzales finally fingers Bush for NSA spying!

Surprised?
