Purdue University's Synthetic Environment for Analysis and Simulations, or SEAS, is currently being used by Homeland Security and the US Defense
Department to simulate crises on the US mainland. SEAS "enables researchers and organizations to try out their models or techniques in a publicly
known, realistically detailed environment." It "is now capable of running real-time simulations for up to 62 nations, including Iraq,
Afghanistan, and China. The simulations gobble up breaking news, census data, economic indicators, and climactic events in the real world, along with
proprietary information such as military intelligence. [...] The Iraq and Afghanistan computer models are the most highly developed and complex of the
62 available to JFCOM-J9. Each has about five million individual nodes representing things such as hospitals, mosques, pipelines, and people." END
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.
The NSA’s illegal warrantless wiretapping programming. The building of the massive NSA data center in Utah to permanently store copies of
all digital communication sent around the world. The UK government’s “Communications Data Bill” to monitor emails, instant messages and other
personal information. What was dismissed as crazy conspiracy theory just over a decade ago has become, in this post-9/11 era, the all-too-familiar
stuff of newspaper headlines and talking head reportage.
The Sentient World Simulation’s aim, according to its creator, is to be a “continuously running, continually updated mirror model of the
real world that can be used to predict and evaluate future events and courses of action.” In practical terms that equates to a computer simulation
of the planet complete with billions of “nodes” representing every person on the earth. - See more at:
I have heard of many simulations but never one on such a grand scale and detail. I can see the benefit from such a simulation for planners; but golly
gee I can also wonder where all this path of technology may be used in the future. A detailed sim with all the emails, text, credit card transactions,
you ideas on your social networks all placed in a sim and a little number is you... Pretty big "WOW" factor IMO especially if used as a psyop
program for the masses.
With the spread of blogs, social networking sites and media-sharing technology, the conditions under which our military forces conduct
operations are rapidly changing. These conditions and speed with which information is pass are further accelerated by proliferation of mobile
technology. Addressing the implications of these trends is part of preventing strategic surprise. DARPA’s mission is to prevent such
To accomplish this, SMISC will focus research on linguistic cues, patterns of information flow and detection of sentiment or opinion in
information generated and spread through social media. Researchers will also attempt to track ideas and concepts to analyze patterns and cultural
narratives. If successful, they should be able to model emergent communities and analyze narratives and their participants, as well as characterize
generation of automated content, such as by bots, in social media and crowd sourcing.
DARPA conducts its works within legal and ethical constraints and has taken a leadership role in the science and technology community to
address privacy and ethical, legal and societal implications (ELSI).
Seems like we heard that in front of a congressional hearing from Clapper, No? www.darpa.mil...(SSIM).aspx
Develop quantitative analytic tools to study narratives and their effects on human behavior in security contexts;
◦Analyze the neurobiological impact of narratives on hormones and neurotransmitters, reward processing, and emotion-cognition interaction; and
◦Develop models and simulations of narrative influence in social and environmental contexts, develop sensors to determine their impact on
individuals and groups, and suggest doctrinal modifications.
News to me and I'm supposed to know about these things. Must have been the 400 acidtrips finally catching up to me.
I wonder...An exercise here that people are really sick of is terrorist blowing up Wolf Creek dam and the colossal destruction it would cause. The
worst case scenario is the swamping of Browns Ferry Nuclear Plant with tsunami like waves. These drills are ok-and kinda fun-the first and maybe the
second time. After that it is just redundant.
I wonder if this is the kind of scenarios they propagate?
The trouble with such a simulation is that it can't emulate sentience in its nodes. Without that aspect of human nature, a simulation is basically
You would be surprised how much of your "sentience" behavior is predictable and easily guessed by simulation, despite what people think,
We all are not unique snow flakes and predictive modeling has been highly successful in guessing human behavior from past trends.
The more disturbing trend is what Successfully modeling the entire planet and population could mean for the Simulated or Holographic universe
hypothesis. IF we are ever able to pull off such a model it leads to a high probability that this universe is one such creation.

You must not understand the implications of there being one simulation. Ho ho, you're gonna love this.
IF there is one complete simulation, ever, then that means we are most likely a simulation. Not just one of many, but one of a probable infinite
number. Give the vid a watch and then reassess your life and everything you believe in.
Do you feel that creeping sensation as it inches up the contours of your spine? Do you hear that dark whisper as the chilling breath of truth gently
graces the hairs upon your earlobe? And as the words so long kept hidden from you begins to wash over your brain, tell me, in that mess of electrical
signals...do you comprehend what this means?
Now you're free. Do the thing that you know you must do.
