My ex girlfriends uncle was high ranking defence official (no I have no way of verifying this, I was only 17 at the time and didn't think to press him on his position) ... when I asked him what the technologys we (the U.S. Gov.) currently have in use his only reply before becoming eerily silent was "If you knew, you most likely would go insane"

That statement alone still sends shivers down my spine!

What can we as a collective dream up beside the standard; Anti Gravity devices, time travel, light speed travel, invisability...

What sort of technology could drive the average man insane just by its mere existance?...

Get wild with this one... I see just about all possibilites viable with this question...

Well, one technology they have is highly sophisticated spell checkers, that would blow your mind. As for speculation, you do realize that without any means to ever have closure, it's kind of an intellectual waste of time. You'd be best served by sticking with known sciences(i.e. physics, engineering, etc...), to help eliminate things that aren't technologically possible.

Real Time Voice Morphing
Cloaking
Anti-Gravity
3d Holographic projection
....etc, etc...

Some technologies are not economically feasible to implement though. So you won't see things like anti-gravity and cloaking being used on a massive military scale.

Im sorry, I forgot all were supposed to be perfect, I dont understand if you dont agree with a thread, why post at all? All you are doing is bringing more people here to post about the very thing in which you dont agree about...


How about personal holographics, instantly changing you appearance without changing your phisiology?...

That's probably why he said that, that way you wouldn't ask anymore questions.

When i was in the Cryptology field, i used to give replies of that sort all the time, when i was asked what i did. After my response, they normally didn't ask any more questions.


Now i'm in the Telecommuncations field. It's alot easier to answer the questions now.

This is a good thread man. I would love to be high up in the government and see all the cool things they have researched and invented. I can only imagine
(Clones, removable vaginas
, aliens, non addictive crack
, and prolly some kick a** guns :lol

Well if we're limiting the topic to human technologies, and not trying to talk about the military using Alien technology, then there are physical limits to what can be done. There is gee whiz stuff out there, but we're not quite to Star Trek/Total Recall/Predator level gizmos yet. What I was trying to point out with sarcasm, is that wild speculation without focus is purely academic. It'd be like if someone said "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you," and then you saying, "my God, this must be some serious stuff, if they'd have to kill me. They must have anti-gravity cloaking devices, that they've tested in deep underground bunkers, on college students that were taken to Montauk."


One can speculate about anything, but if you never have anyway of knowing if you're accurate or way off the mark, it just isn't a terribly useful thing to do.

Who told you about the college student experiment program?

Alright buddy, we're going to have to have a talk with your security officer.

It's part of the college orientation program. They take otherwise normal kids, and then have them sit in "classes" while they "teach" them things.
120 or so credit hours later, they're now the perfect instrument for the NWO, as many will go on to work for "corporations."

If you are a nice guy at heart, some of it would make you unhappy.

Some of it would make you sleep less well.

Some of it would p--s you right off because you're not going to see it in your lifetime.

A bunch you wouldn't understand because it's too arcane.

But the bulk of it is pure mundanity that you would look at and say "What? Why in God's name is that secret? We could save the taxpayers about 10 metric gazillion bucks by declassing that sort of thing. What possible use is maintaining that as TS?" and the answer would be - bureaucracy. Why think, when you can go by the book?

In my personal experience, the dance-around-the-table-laughing-and-high-fiving stuff is about 0.1% of the "yet another classified screwdriver" ones.
