Day 152. Have you ever pondered the absurdity of conscious existence. Everyone thinks they know so much but the truth is we all know so little. I
can't prove that the people around me even exist. How can I ever really know if I'm unable to see reality through their eyes? I've never left this
planet, can I be absolutely sure that space really exists beyond the atmosphere unless I go there myself? What if this entire reality is just a super
advanced computer program, a virtual reality?
After scanning the ambient electromagnetic radiation in the area I noticed some oddities. There were some weird signals floating among all the noise,
they looked suspiciously similar to the signals emitted by WAHC technology. Remember when I was saying my mind works better at night. It turns out
that my most absurd theory was true after all. They are probably using satellites, radio stations and cell phone towers to transmit a hypnotic signal
during the day. After nullifying the signal with my defense mechanism I can think clearly during the day now.
"Testing... testing... 1, 2, 3." mumbles TheDoctor, and I can hear his voice as if he were next to me.
"Houston, we have contact!" I exclaim.
"I will never doubt you again! I can't believe that our voices sound so much like our real voices!" shouts TheDoctor.
"Well the voice samples from each of our voices made it work nicely. We could have used robotized voices but that didn't seem like any fun." I
"So what the hell do we do now? What are we going to do with this technology?" TheDoctor questions.
"I've been thinking about that. The people who I stole this technology from. God only knows what they are planning to do, or are already doing with
this technology. We need to find out more about them and find out what they are up to." I pronounce.
"That's going to be dangerous. Do you really want to mess with these guys?" he asks.
"I don't trust these people, I need to know what they're using this technology for. From now on this is the safest way to talk. Right now our voices
are being sent to each other over the internet using encrypted connections which are handled by a server in Sweden. Even if they managed to decrypt it
they'd need to understand what they were looking at. And only very specialized quasi-government organizations will have the ability to read signals
used in WAHC technology." I explain carefully.
"That's easy enough to understand. So I'll need to have this little device behind my ear for us to talk this way?" questions TheDoctor.
"Correct. From now on we'll call those little units a NERD - Neurological Extension and Relay Device. NERDs essentially have the ability to alter your
mind and read your mind. But the 'control center' - your wifi laptop - is responsible for sending a signal to the NERD which tells it how to alter
your mind. Then the NERD 'relays' a weaker signal to your head. The NERDs second function is to intercept the brain waves emitted from your head and
'relay' the signal back to the 'control center'. All signals sent between the NERD and control center are encrypted for security and so that it wont
affect anyone in the area." I answer.
TheDoctor and myself are achieving great success with the WAHC and WIHC technology. By combining these technologies with the internet it's possible to
achieve 'telepathic' communication aided by technology - or TCAT - with anyone in the world. It's a bit like having a conversation with microphones
over the internet, but it's actually feels like the person is standing right near you, and that's because the WAHC technology alters your brain to
make you actually believe it.
WAHC technology can alter your entire perception of reality. It can make you hear things that aren't there, but it can also make you see things that
aren't there. I have used this concept to develop a visual display/overlay (lets just call it the 'OVI' technology - Overlaid Visual Interface) which
alters my brain to create a state of augmented reality. I can literally see things that aren't there floating in front of my eyes. Images inserted on
top of my normal vision.
It works exactly the same as before when I was overlaying my computer screen onto my normal vision. Only now I have developed a custom operating
system specially designed to work with the OVI technology. Everything has been made semi-transparent and the interface is extremely compact so that it
wont obscure my normal vision too much. WIHC technology lets me use my thoughts to control a virtual keyboard and a small cross hair cursor instead of
a large triangle pointer. The cross hair will also appear and disappear when I want it to.
The OVI display also shows me graphs about my brain activity and the status of my security system. I've provided TheDoctor with this new OVI program.
It also has an inbuilt function that lets me initialize a TCAT conversation with TheDoctor. When call his OVI display will show that he has an
incoming TCAT call and he has the choice to accept or reject it. He also has the ability to make TCAT calls to me. We agreed that we would always
answer each others calls except in cases of emergency.
Incoming TCAT call (TheDoctor) ...
Call authorized ...
Initializing connection ...
"Hey dude I have something you need to see." TheDoctor informs me.
"What is it?" I reply.
"This hacker I talk to some times, CrystalViper, phoned me from a public phone, told me he was on the run from the cops, and told me where to download
a file he stashed on a random server. He said that you might know what do to do with it. I just heard on the news they caught him and he's being
sentenced for some sort of hacking offense." explains TheDoctor.
"What? How did he know who I was? Did he know my name?" I ask furiously.
"Well everyone in the underground knows your name is Adam. It's your screen name on all the boards. I didn't even think your real name was Adam
though... even if it is your real name, it's a very common name. At least no one knows your last or middle name." TheDoctor answers.
"Just upload the file to my FTP server. I can browse my FTP server from within my OVI display." I respond.
"It's a fairly large file but with my upload speed it shouldn't take too long." boasts TheDoctor.
"I can't help but think this feels like some sort of trap. To bust me they might try going through you." I propose.
"There can't be much harm in checking it out." TheDoctor suggests.
"Ok I've got the file. It's just a single program... I'll fire it up in a sandbox and see what it's used for." I reply.
"Sounds like it could be a tracking app. Make sure your firewall doesn't let it make any connections to the internet." TheDoctor warns.
"It's not a virus and it hasn't tried to establish any connections yet, but there's a settings area and a button which says 'connect to server' so I'm
assuming it will try to make a connection when I hit that button." I respond.
"What are the settings for?" TheDoctor asks curiously.
"Input Network Stream... Output Network Stream... could this be some sort of WAHC-WIHC program? I'm able to select my NERD input and output signals
from the drop-down lists... this might be similar to the TCAT software I developed. The last requirement in the settings is a password. The
connections are encrypted like ours." I suggest.
