ECONOPHYSICS, AND THE PROMIS OF RIOT

Mr. P.T. brought this to my attention, and I have to comment on it. And this "having to comment" is both an interior compulsion, and a kind of moral imperative, all at once.

But first, a little background.

In my book Babylon's Banksters I talked about the emergence, in the late 1970s and early 1980s, of a new discipline, "econophysics," as physicists trained in quantum mechanics brought their statistical modeling methods of the interactions of multitude of particles of all sizes shapes and colors to the world of economics and finance, and thus created a new discipline. Indeed, in that book, I pointed out the close relationship between the ancient temple and finance, implying a connection between cosmology of the physics kind, and cosmology of the economics and religion kind.

I have also written here on this website, and again in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, of the INSLAW scandal, and the Department of Justice's alleged theft of its proprietary software, PROMIS, which it was developing for the Justice Department to track cases and people through the criminal justice system. But it soon became apparent that the architecture of the software allowed it to be modified to track almost anything: terrorists, money-laundering, you name it. In Covert Wars, I pointed out how convicted hedge fund manager Sam Israel had tried to acquire the now famous software program.

I suspect, putting two and two together, that there are deep connections between the emergence of "econophysics" during this time period, and software architectures that began to acquire the capability of tracking literally billions people or other kinds of information. The two go hand in hand. The humans assemble the equations, but the supercomputers have to calculate them (and in that, there is a significant clue).

With that in mind, we now have this development:

Software that tracks people on social media created by defence firm

Now, consider the implications in the context of the INSLAW/PROMIS scandal: imagine the implications of such software development being applied to tracking money, money laundering, in addition to people.

Implication: I strongly suspect, though of course, cannot prove, that there are deep connections between RIOT and PROMIS, if for no other reason than that the lessons learned in constructing the architecture of PROMIS will, at some point, have been passed down, expanded upon, modified, and so on, as hardware capabilities expanded. But now, unlike in the 1980s Ed Meese Department of Justice, the "other" applications of the software tracking capabilities are at least being discussed openly. To these we might add: the ability to track people also implies - like the name econphysics suggests - the ability to predict aggregate behavioral response to specific contexts. In short, we just took another huge step forward into Philip K. Dick's universe of Minority Reports and a Department of Pre-Crime, where people are literally arrested for a crime they are predicted to commit. We're not there yet, of course, but we're on our way.

Such a capability also indicates yet another, and that is the ability to construct computer models - to literally print off a graph or chart - of all of an individual's or group's associations; to literally chart the social network of anyone, or any group, including a central bank, a financial oligarchy, a corporation. As I said in Covert Wars and Breakaway Civilizations, the real problem for the central bankers is increasingly they are confronted by technological capabilities that allow others to break their monopoly. And those capabilities will, inevitably, trickle down to average people. Such capabilities spell computerized competition even to their own clearing franchises such as SWIFT and CHIPS. It also means that, for the moment, governments in possession of such technology will make common cause with those clearing franchises simply for the sake of expediency. But inevitably, the break in the monopoly will come.

Why?

Rest assured, China, and Russia, will be eager to gain, steal, or emulate these software capabilities.

See you on the flip side.

  1. As part of my graduate thesis, I resorted to some advance time-series methods to simulate future volatility in Financial Assets.

    During my thesis selection process everyone would say that there were no projection power in such methods but as always, they failed to prove why!

    i found a professor who kindly accepted to guide me through the thesis..

    As I thought, a diligent application of the process turned out highly accurate predictions of an asset volatility path over a couple of months, thus allowing big money to be made in derivatives trading.

    Yet! the official line in academia (as legacy of people who were no longer in academia but elsewhere in the hedge fund space) was that those methods were useless.

  2. First heard of PROMIS through Michael Ruppert & Catherine Austin Fits. Just thinking how long ago that was, in terms of technology – it is ancient. To imagine where they are today & where they are going; has dystopian shades, realized Philip K Dick plots – all coming together in a perfect storm, reaping a whirlwind of madness.
    Need to gather up these elitist inmates runing the asylum back in their gilded cages, minus their money & power.

  3. And the citizenry’s response: the flash mob.

    “In the past, apolitical groups used the flash mob approach to organize surprising performances in public. But now right-wing extremists have adopted the method for their purposes, usually making the arrangements secretly through internal distribution lists and text messages. If a supporter reveals the plans on Facebook, for example, the event is cancelled. In this way, the right-wing extremists avoid protests by leftists and bans by the authorities. The conspiratorial nature of these events also has its allure, enhancing the experience for participants.”

  4. I just saw a commercial for a new show on THE WEATHER CHANNEL that said something like “Cool ways to control the weather.” No joke.

    the name of the new show? HACKING THE PLANET.

    That is so significant if requires no comment.

  5. The slave junkies are at it again their lust for control knows no bounds. Let us hope this will blowup in the face as usual. They never learn marching morons as always.

  6. “the real problem for the central bankers is increasingly they are confronted by technological capabilities that allow others to break their monopoly.

    Those capabilities HAVE trickled down or rather have already been created:

    Bitcoin is an example of a so-called crypto-currency that is both the currency AND the payment network at once(!)

    Yes, let that one sink in for a moment 😉

    An excellent overview is given here:

    From this page:

    “Bitcoin and Disruption

    Once one makes this realization – that the government is actually quite powerless to stop Bitcoin, then a few ramifications might spring into mind. If Bitcoin doesn’t fail on its own, then to some extent it will succeed, and as it succeeds, it starts to replace many of the institutions which have caused so much trouble for humanity.

    First on the chopping block are market actors which compete for the business of money transfer. Mega-companies like PayPal and Western Union (and even more deeply rooted companies like SWIFT) discover that they have to compete with a system that transfers money at practically zero cost. ”

    SWIFT and others are no longer needed to send money across the world.

    1. First heard of “bitcoin” on The Max Keiser Report. It is the anthesis of The Centralized Banksters; it is decentralization personified.
      I imagine these control freaks, biting at the bit.

  7. Rest assured, China, and Russia, will be eager to gain, steal, or emulate these software capabilities.

    If they haven’t already, of course.
