(Abbreviated by me; There are three pages of this story, well worth the read....)

Perhaps your real life is so rich you don't have time for another.

Even so, the US Department of Defense (DOD) may already be creating a copy of you in an alternate reality to see how long you can go without food or water, or how you will respond to televised propaganda.

The DOD is developing a parallel to Planet Earth, with billions of individual "nodes" to reflect every man, woman, and child this side of the dividing line between reality and AR.

"SWS provides an environment for testing Psychological Operations (PSYOP)," the paper reads, so that military leaders can "develop and test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners".

Chaturvedi is now pitching SWS to DARPA and discussing it with officials at the US Department of Homeland Security, where he said the idea has been well received, despite the thorny privacy issues for US citizens.

In fact, Homeland Security and the Defense Department are already using SEAS to simulate crises on the US mainland.

Of course, government agencies and corporations can add to SWS whatever personally-identifiable information they choose from their own databases, and for their own purposes.

And with consumers already giving up their personal information regularly to websites such as MySpace and Twitter, it is not a stretch to imagine SWS doing the same thing.

"There may be hooks through which individuals may voluntarily contribute information to SWS," Chaturvedi said.

At the very least, this shoud make participation in various "hook" services, like Facebook and Twitter, something you'd think twice about.

They're essentially admitting that these are designed to get us used to the idea of volunteering private info to the public.

Additionally, I'm curious about the meteoric rise of these services, like Facebook, particularly since part of that rise was provided by the MSM's constant promotion of these services.

I mean, we all know that MSM is propaganda...And should we be surprised that this propaganda machine was promoting something that would benefit an EVIL program like this????

I wonder if they could/would use this technology to simulate/predict positive events. It's all a bit negative, they keep banging on about how they can test how people react under stress and what might hint at negative outcomes. Why not use it to test out different methods of economic stimulation/regulation and use the results as a basis for policy?

I agree about the facebook worries. Its not just the signing up for it though.. How many questionaires are going around on there? Urgh it's sickening to think that we could even be that predictable but its not surprising when we have so much of our 'opinion' spoon fed to us.

BTW, at first I thought you meant that they had literally made (found?) an alternate universe as a test run... Slight disappointment there

That's really funny about the Sentient World title assumption!

It's true though, they're really trying to make it mimic our lives. They want to predict how we'll react to news events.

Makes you re-examine the "burn the Koran" guy...

I'll bet you anything that the actual news events we saw were just backtesting what they'd already simulated in this program...

Maybe we all need to become misinformation specialist.

How can the government know what I might do in the event of a situation when I have several plans.
Each plan depends on the threat situation.

What really scares me is that the people collecting our information truly believe they are more intelligent than the majority of citizens are.

I live with an expert psyops veteran taught by the US Army.

Do not believe anything you see or hear. Things are rarely what they seem.

Happy gaming to all. Stay alert.
