Over the past weeks we've all been watching, perhaps a bit stunned, as revelations of the IRS pressure on political groups broke, followed closely by the Snowden revelations that The NSA has been spying on...well, pretty much everyone, including the Queen's dogs. But what, really, is the purpose of all this spying? After all, it's been going on for a while.
One purpose that I suggested previously on this site was that such data mining, coupled with sophisticated architectures and computer programs, could run global simulations for the ultimate insider trading schemes. It would be the ultimate tool in the hands of "economphysicists", those physicists that began to move into banking in the 1950s and 1960s, taking their techniques of modeling vast amounts of individual particle behavior and adapting them to modeling the complexities of human interactions under all sorts of contexts.
Now there is this article, which I must share, because the implications are so vast, and so extensive, that I scarcely don't know where to begin:
Sentient World Simulations. ACQUAINT or "Advanced QUestion Answering for INTelligence.” "Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA)]."
While reading this disturbing article, I had of course the disquieting thought that such data management architectures could be bringing about a nightmare - the ultimate insider trading, the Minority Report of Philip K. Dick and his department of "pre-crime," or a Robert Heinlein-Eagle Eye scenario where the computer "wakes up" and turns on its own masters.
But behind it all, there is another possibility that lurks, one I suggested in Babylon's Banksters: the ability to figure out the relationships between celestial geometry and human behavior. Recall, for a moment, that both ancient Egyptian and Babylonian sources indicate that their astrological observations were taken over tens of thousands of years... in other words, if taken at their word, they were suggesting that an enormous stastistical database was compiled. Astrology was the result, which, without that database, was merely a "pseudoscience," with the "results" being passed down to become the qualitative "science" it is today, sans the data that had been compiled.
Since we like to indulge in high octane speculation here, then suppose for a moment that these various hidden programs were also being used to find and collate such correlations. It would mean, quite literally, that "econophysics" would be given a component from celestial mechanics... it would become a real though obviously deeply hidden "astrology". Now let's extend our speculations a bit further. Suppose, in compiling such correlations, that another set of correlations were examined, namely, those between celestial mechanics and actual astrological texts, beginning, of course, with the various Egyptian and Mesopotamian records that are still extant. In such a case, the program would perhaps provide insights into the original basis of the origins of astrology, of human history, and of those civilizations' claims for having been compiled over thousands of years. It would be, in other words, a way of verifying their own statements that they were legacy civilizations, declined civilizations, from something far more ancient and advanced.
What all this means is that "black projects" have indeed become black, i.e., the technologies are emerging that will confirm, or deny, the alternative research community's speculative reconstructions of High Antiquity. The esoteric tradition becomes a subject of computer modelling and statistical analysis in an Ahnenerbedienst on steroids.
We know, from those ancient texts, what happened to that Very High Civilization in High antiquity, precisely because of its vaunted technology.
There is of course, an upside to all of this, for the problem with all such models remains what it always has been for would-be world dominators: the individual person.
See you on the flip side.
