Thanks.. Based it on observations that have made over the years - both real world and online.. It helps a bit though scary if they ever manage to create a true ai that also displays emotions.. Then will be back to gut instinct and knowing how to read between the lines to spot them.. figure that with whats at stake in todays world it helps to share tips to remain a step ahead..


DARPA (parent of the IAO) is working on this:

The U.S. military’s premiere research agency is already trying to use math to predict human behavior and neuroscience to replicate a primate’s brain. The next step: Lean on the study of energy and heat to create an entirely new theory for how intelligence actually works.

The idea behind Darpa’s latest venture, called “Physical Intelligence” (PI) is to prove, mathematically, that the human mind is nothing more than parts and energy. In other words, all brain activities — reasoning, emoting, processing sights and smells — derive from physical mechanisms at work, acting according to the principles of “thermodynamics in open systems.” Thermodynamics is founded on the conversion of energy into work and heat within a system (which could be anything from a test-tube solution to a planet). The processes can be summed up in formalized equations and laws, which are then used to describe how systems react to changes in their surroundings.

Now, the military wants a new equation: one that explains the human mind as a thermodynamic system. Once that’s done, they’re asking for “abiotic, self-organizing electronic and chemical systems” that display the PI principles. More than just computers that think, Darpa wants to re-envision how thought works — and then design computers whose thought processes are governed by the same laws as our own.

Sounds spooky, but what Darpa suggests has been kicking around as branch of philosophy, called physicalism, since the early 20th century. And researchers have already designed computers that can solve problems of complex physics. What is a little freaky is what DARPA’s new paradigm would mean for the distinction, or lack thereof, between humans and machines.

“If successful, the program would launch a revolution of understanding across many fields of human endeavor, demonstrate the first intelligence engineered from first principles, create new classes of electronic, computational, and chemical systems, and create tools to engineer intelligent systems that match the problem/environment in which they will exist.”

Even for Darpa, this is a wildly ambitious goal — one that may never be reached. But if the human mind is nothing more than the sum of its parts, Darpa’s new paradigm just might create computational intelligence that outdoes our own thermodynamic capabilities… making your brain the equivalent of last year’s model.

Wired Magazine.

These brains would then be linked via synthetic telepathy which they are already working on.

Before being vocalized, speech exists as word-specific neural signals in the mind. Darpa wants to develop technology that would detect these signals of “pre-speech,” analyze them, and then transmit the statement to an intended interlocutor. Darpa plans to use EEG to read the brain waves.

Even scarier is this technology is being developed to force the soldier into action... but if the soldier is a PI grown for the job it would have no problems with following even the most horrendous orders instantaneously.

The military has been funding a handful of mind-tapping technology recently, and already have monkeys capable of telepathic limb control. Telepathy may also have advantages beyond covert battlefield chatter. Last year, the National Research Council and the Defense Intelligence Agency released a report suggesting that neuroscience might also be useful to “make the enemy obey our commands.” The first step, though, may be getting a grunt to obey his officer’s remotely-transmitted thoughts.

Wired Magazine
And those monkeys, or in this case PI do not even need to be on the same continent and now control walking robots. So a small group of TPTB can sit in a war room... or strip club... and order a central PI which then can order an army of PI's in drones (now you know why they are pushing drone over human controled planes) to carry out any whim they desire.... and they are already proven eugenicist who think we all need to die anyways.

A few years back, Duke neuroscientists, funded by the Pentagon, figured out how to have monkeys control robotic arms with their little simian minds. Now, if that wasn’t unnerving enough, the same Duke crew has discovered a way for one of the monkeys to make "a 200-pound, 5-foot humanoid robot walk on a treadmill using only her brain activity," the New York Times reports. How far away are we from the ultimate sci-fi dystopia: Terminator and Planet of the Apes — at the same time!

And did we mention that these same researchers recently took out a patent on mind-controlled weapons?

Wired magazine

A few Eugenics quotes:

“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.” - Prince Phillip, Duke of Edinburgh, leader of the World Wildlife Fund – quoted in “Are You Ready For Our New Age Future?,” Insiders Report, American Policy Center, December ’95


“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.” – Ted Turner – CNN founder and UN supporter – quoted in the McAlvany Intelligence Advisor, June ’96


“The world has a cancer, and that cancer is man.” – Merton Lambert, former spokesman for the Rockefeller foundation


“In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.” – Jacques Cousteau

It is no random fluke that the Psy-Ops were working on Senators recently... they just got caught. This has been DOCTRINE since the 70's.


Good point, how many Psy_Ops are they waging? !

You know what? Do You know what I believe that what the PTB are most afraid of?

1) our numbers
2) they cannot hold onto control forever
3) the thought that we will figure out how powerful we really are
4) our solidarity with our brothers/sisters .... there WILL be a new world just not what THEY want
5) we can fix all the wrongs
6) we can eradicate the thought that more power is better and perhaps even learn to control that in the future if this problem arises again!

According to their stated agenda in that paper they are working on mass control of the US population. They have been caught time and again controlling media and politicians:

CNN AND PSYOPS
By Alexander Cockburn

Military personnel from the Fourth Psychological Operations Group based at Fort Bragg, in North Carolina, have until recently been working in CNN's hq in Atlanta.

CNN is up in arms about our report in the last issue of CounterPunch concerning the findings of the Dutch journalist, Abe de Vries about the presence of US Army personnel at CNN, owned by Time-Warner.


They have their own media division for broadcasting. Everytime a see a "CNN Journalist" my eyebrow raises... especially when they go deep into wars. CNN were caught in the gulf-war making lots of fake news... now you understand it. It was all over the MSM at the time laughing at CNN.



ETA here is a video which actually shows the basement and false stage:

Great information there thank you for posting it !
Well it should come as no suprise then, it seems this is another revolving door.


For those new to the story, it involves email revelations that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation's largest corporate lobbying firm, was working with the law firm Hunton & Williams (H&W), to develop a scheme with three well-connected, government-contracted cyber-security/intelligence firms (HBGary Federal, Berico Technologies and Palantir Technologies --- calling themselves "Team Themis" collectively) to use nefarious and likely illegal schemes in hopes of discrediting VR, myself and other progressive citizens, journalists and organizations who had opposed the Chamber's extremist corporate agenda.

A parallel plot, similar in many ways, was also being developed, according to tens of thousands of emails and other documents posted to the web by the "hacktivist" collective Anonymous, led by the Bank of America to attack WikiLeaks with the same law firm and security contractors on board. That plot included a scheme to target Salon journalist Glenn Greenwald, and both involved the use of tools and techniques developed for the so-called "War on Terror", the planting of false documents and the creation of fake personas, all in hopes of discrediting the perceived political enemies of both the Chamber and BofA.

Incredibly enough, H&W was recommended to BofA by the U.S. Dept. of Justice.

and no coincidence that:

Emails also show the HBGary Federal executives corresponding with federal employees from a range of agencies including Los Alamos National Labs, the Army, and the National Security Agency. There's also talk of work with the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security.

Ah yes, the corporate angle, thanks for highlighting. And thanks for your threads, Starred and Flagged.
The two are very close these days, and maybe even sharing socks.



On a proposal bearing Berico Technologies’ document header, Themis places their proposed “Corporate Information Reconnaissance Cell” next to a Joint Special Operations Command F3EA “targeting cycle” with this explanation:



Team Themis will draw on our extensive operational and intelligence experience to rapidly make sense of the volumes of data we’ve collected through the application of proven analytical/targeting methodologies. Drawing on the principles and processes developed and refined by JSOC in the “Find, Fix, Finish, Exploit, Analyze” (F3EA) targeting cycle, we will develop and execute a tailored CIRC intelligence cycle suited to enable rapid identification/understanding, refined collection/detection, focused application of effects, exploitation, and analysis/assessment.


Mind you, this is just a fancy graphic for “analysis”–the kind of stuff civilians do all the time. But Themis–led by Berico Technologies in this case–decided to brand it as a JSOC (Joint Special Operations Command) product, applying an American unconventional warfare model to targeting political opponents engaging in free speech.

Why is this considered "Breaking News?" This is as old as communication itself.

Obama's DOJ has been trolling the net and posting against critics and in support of the BHO regime for almost as long as he's been in office:

Obama Disinformation Agents Are Actively Posting ...

Did someone just now come around to realize that if they could do it in-house, they could freelance it as well, and better?

Does it really matter who or what is behind the message; or isn't the real issue about being able to independently and accurately assess what is real and to stand behind your own position/belief with reason and fact?

This really isn't much different from the old "propaganda machines" employing earlier media and means to move the masses.

If people learned to clearly think for themselves there would be no "threat" no matter the source, means or message. We need to regain the ability to use our heads rather than react to what we hear, read or are told.

It's really quite simple, when you think about it.

Thanks for posting and also for your thread.

This is in breaking news due to the new scandal exposing personal management software.
Uncanny that many of us picked up on it before it was proven, as you did.

One laptop = 10 people, or I am sure there is a way to increase the capability.
I cant help but think of that entourage of folks that followed Obama everywhere, with thier laptops.

But even if it were to be made illegal the alphabet agencies could still do it?! What would stop them?
It's not like they aren't already spending billions of dollars on secret projects that we know nothing about..

This is very disheartening..


I guess the only way to fight back is to get a hold of the same software and use it against them.. ?

We're in your hands now benevolent hackers.. make us proud!

I have ZERO doubt that these programs are RIFE all over the net, and it likely constitutes a whole HOST of not just military, but I would surmise the alphabet soup orgs as well.

Many have called out folks right here on this very site who appeared to have VERY vested interests, and seemingly "different" user names, which appeared to have not only those very similar agendas,but strikingly similar writing styles as well.

Coincidence?

We suspected (my late brother, my sons and me, also some friends) that some of the people we were debating the 'war on terror' with on h2g2 back in 2001-3 were alphabet soup or military people...
The similar writing styles, and the claim to have secret knowledge we Eurotrash weren't privy to, kind of gave it away, as did their assumptions about us...
It was hard to distinguish the real cranks from the 'fake' people, but time told, that is, we could see who stuck around after it was all a done deal and Iraq and Afghanistan had been invaded.
My son even used his IT skills to ferret one guy out as, at the least, a really inventive liar.

The practice is not new... the medium is.

"Right to privacy" is the keystone to protecting ourselves.

An invitation to an open forum to discuss matters should not be equated to an invitation to an ideological institution to infiltrate the group.

Participating in the forum (or any forum) should explicitly require the commitment that:

a - you are representing yourself... not some organization,
b - you are not engaged in intelligence activities, including assessment and reporting on membership activity,
c - you are - in fact - a sentient human who is not operating with a programmed agenda

Frankly, as long as my suggested item 'a' is adhered to - we are theoretically safe from such infiltration. But it is naive to think that those intent of pursuing this line of intelligence or counterintelligence activity won't simply lie about it.

This community exists (presumably) to engender dialog.... 'manufactured' dialog is not - by definition - dialog, any more than a written script is a conversation.

I wouldn't be too confident of the ability to 'detect' computer-generated personalities.... they abandoned that strategy quite some time ago. Now they are fusing human output with computer-generated nuance to create consistent and distinguishable traits in specific 'poster identities' - to eliminate the detection that some have made here in the past.....

and yes, make no mistake about it, more than one cabal of politically-aligned jackalopes did attempt to control our discussions in years past.. and they will likely try again..... they seem, every time,. to forget that our members are smarter than they are.... either that or they keep thinking eventually we will fall to the weakness they insist all people have - "repeat a lie enough times and people will come believe it."

It used to be mostly political zealotry that fueled this kind of thing.... now its a bit more frightening.... because the government "of, by, and for, the people" seems to be doing it...... "to" the people..... that makes it no longer political.... it has become oppression, subversion, or suppression of thought.... ugly indeed.

True, that I just read about this. Corporate information reconnaissance coupled with Joint Special Operations Command F3EA, it would be a challenge. Certainly would require engagement.

Method that should be used soley for national security have been perfected to intimidate, and entrap those engaged in free speech.

All I can say is the more people know about this (even if they don't believe the government would use it on us) the easier it will be to spot the "fakes" and will soon become obvious. I don't think they're plan involved us knowing about this tech en mass but thanks to Anon I guess they'll have to implement their plan B and you know they have one and probably a plan C and D you know how it goes. I find that for myself I do my own research into what I hear and never take anyone online serious till I check the facts myself. Stay alert and don't forget to think for yourself!

The revolution will not be televised.
The fake revolution may be webcast however.
The implications of this are truly staggering.
As these fake personas become more and more life-like the greater the influence they will have.
Which stories get talked about, how they are spun and perceived public opinion will all be affected.
IMO they are amassing information that will be used to make people conform or expose themselves during some "crisis" of sorts, which will require everyone to sign on to some new electronic currency scheme or a public health crisis which requires everyone to be tested.
They may even (if they haven't already) establish on-line "patriot" organizations to lure those who might wish to radically change our government in.
So here we are, wandering aimlessly in cyberspace inhabited by government agencies posing as friends and collaborators.
Sowing distrust among the people and asserting new methods of control among them.
It may well already be too late to stop this madness
Forgive the meandering thoughts but I'm overwhelmed by the possibilities, none of them very good.

now you know why Obama has positive
ratings in the polls. Fake people.

And if they can do it online ....
they can do it at the voting booth !!!!

Like Proto and Burn said:
this is one of the most disturbing
pieces of data facing the world today.

Humans are being replaced by a
biased software system. Sounds like the
Matrix, doesn't it???

Also, this is one of the means that TPTB
are creating the revolts in the ME.

This chit ought to be outlawed and it's
users thrown in prison.
