From the original OP document -
"The designers are interested in launching a Matrix-style information meme
in order to form new patterns and programmes of belief-manipulation gaming."
As this century ends, we can say this was period where technology enabled the greatest of horrors and a return to unprecedented barbarity on a scale never before seen, along with dramatic improvements in living standards for the majority of people alive today. Technology is neither good or bad; it is value neutral. What does matter are the choices we make in deciding what end technology should serve. The same hammer that builds a house can bash a skull. We have the choice in how that hammer is used. If that's the case, then the continuing dramatic rate of technological innovation needs to be understood, and placed within a human context. All too often technology is presented as mysterious or monstrous. This just serves to disempower us from experiencing a state of certainty and control over our tools and the environment we create with them. The Into the Matrix web site (www.reach.com...) and the Meme newsletter you're now reading are dedicated to cutting though the jargon, the anthropomorphic metaphors and evasive hype slung at us from all sides. By placing technology in the human context where it belongs, I hope to reaffirm the idea that the future can exist as an improvement on the past.

1. Is there any merit in using it with such a phenomenon vs the 'normal' UFO scenarios?
2. What would be different from the perpetrators' standpoints about using this version vs the 'traditional' versions?
3. What goals would be different?
Maybe that's a good question to expand a bit on . . .
What 'merit' from the perpetrators' standpoints is there in this sort of phenomenon vs the standard sorts of UFO scenarios REGARDLESS of how it was effected, managed, propagated?

Look under June 15th. David Bennahum has sold a script to "EXTRA LIFE: COMING OF AGE IN CYBERSPACE" on the topic of "Set in 1980, centers on the pioneering of the digital culture."
The elation they achieve derives from the prolonged and diverse public reaction to their ‘installation’. This thrill is far greater than any applause or other temporary public approval the creator/s would achieve if they owned up to the work and offered provenance.
“…but there is an element of unkindness in the creator’s personality. …he shows us this wonderful thing then makes us fear it.”
“If it is organised I feel it may be nothing more than viral performance art where the observers are the performers, or a psychosomatic University experiment where the spectator is the cavea porcellus. (A similarly themed experiment took place in Australia recently).”
“…of a small artifact bearing the mysterious glyphs. It is on a laboratory table and supposedly being studied. The thing itself was mailed anonymously to a lab, which at this time is also anonymous, protecting itself from military government intervention. The parts themselves are surprisingly light. Preliminary "studies" indicate that it is unlikely that such a part could have been manufactured on Earth. Further studies will be done, and the results readied for a press conference in the near future. Much debate and excitement.”
Few individuals truly realize the power of the Net augmenting the usual communication mediums and the analog of brain/nervous system mapping would be a predictive asset. I would wager that those who "keep score" on internet are finding new ways to measure "need" and insert "just what you want to see" when "they" would like us to have that awareness.

Sometimes I wonder if Stanton, Linda, Bob, the whole lot of better known researchers are in cahoots with the shadow folks. But mostly, I trust at least Stanton and Linda well above average.
Dr. G would be reflected in the limelight off the drone anti-wings and project himself with ion-drive precision back into the middle of the eggbeater, thus creating more spin for french toast Disclosure.
This is by far the best thread on Isaac…If I can say anything is that this journey has led me to meet all of you..and in my searches grow more informed.
…and the turns to his fellow officers to say..Round up the usual suspects… …but i say all you need is a photo from california to bring it all home and keep distance or attention from oneself.
