Normally when people send me a story like this, I like to thank them by mentioning their initials. In this case, we'll just say thanks go to "N". You'll understand my reticence in a moment, because I have the distinct impression that what's going on here is not only an April Fools' Joke, but a bit of "psyops fun", so to speak. So, while normally I like to post the article first and then my high octane speculation, here I'm going to reverse the process.
Suppose, for a moment, that you want to introduce maximum contextual doubt into a target population. How would you do it? Well, one way would be to "leak" a story, or plant a story, with claims so outlandish that people would wonder whether or not there was a kernel of truth in it, simply because it's source was (1) a no-nonsense sort of source, and (2) that source made it abundantly clear that the whole story was a prank, a joke. Even with the stated caveat, a certain segment of the population will then indulge the "yes, but" phenomenon, and get itself tangled in infinite loops, debating and holding internal conversations to the effect that how does one hide truth? Why, right out in the open, in the form of a prank. Or, conversely, because it's a prank, there's no truth to it. And so on, in endless spirals oscillating ceaselessly between belief and skepticism. And of course, as part of such an operation, one can use it as a "dye-the-waters" operation, to monitor who picks up on it (which we're gladly doing here because we like this sort of high octane speculation).
As I've argued elsewhere, this sort of "experiment" might even conceivably be part of some sort of "macro-physics-consciousness" experiment to see if indeed group consciousness effects can manifest, not on a quantum level, but precisely in the everyday world. The experiments of California materials science professor Dr William Tiller would seem to suggest the latter. In any case, the possibility of experiment-cum-prank, or prank-cum-experiment, or, far more likely, just a plain old prank, remains. So with that context in mind, consider the following story shared by "N":
I have to admit I had quite a chuckle at the "details" of the "expedition" of the teleporting soldiers who stepped into a chamber "over here", and stepped out in the twinkling of an eye (quite literally!) "over there" in Grafenwoehr, Germany:
The nine human research volunteers, fresh out of Advanced Individual Training, were participating in experiments in the Doriot Climatic Chambers at NSSC when they disappeared and moments later materialized at the Grafenwoehr Training Area, completely unharmed. The chambers are capable of replicating any climate or weather in the world but have never before been used in this manner.
Of course, this unexpected result caused a great deal of "elation" as the Army officials quickly realized the strategic implications:
Officials at Natick were elated by the event, which promises to one day revolutionize the way that American troops and equipment are transported around the globe. It also could ultimately make overseas bases obsolete as forces are instead moved from U.S. soil to remote trouble spots in the blink of an eye.
With that, of course, we have the other part of the psyop: if we can do this, we can also materialize soldiers in... oh, say, the Kremlin, or in, oh, say, Sultan Erdogan's bed chamber, the Saudi royal palaces, or Mr. Xi Jinping's gold-platted bathroom. (Singing:) "And we won't be back till it's over over there." Ha ha, April fools! Just kidding!
And you have to give credit where credit is due: the Army has a sense of humor, and is playing it up for all it's worth. The teleportation trek, as it turns out, was a complete accident and surprise, and the whole thing resembles the technical gadgetry of Back to the Future:
Storm and other Natick researchers are now poring over mountains of data from the development in hopes of replicating it. Meanwhile, the Army quickly established a Teleportation Study Task Force, which will be based at Natick. Leading scientists from private industry and academia worldwide are converging on the chambers to lend whatever assistance they can.
According to Storm, a device not unlike the "flux capacitor" seen in the "Back to the Future" movie series was employed during the experiment. This led to immediate speculation that the Army was also working on time travel, but time travel requirements of generating 1.21 gigawatts is no trivial feat.
"1.21 gigawatts? Holy smokes, Dr. Brown! That's enormous! ... wait, isn't HAARP's output in the gigawatt range?"
"Wait, climate chambers that can produce weather? Like tornadoes 'n vortices 'n stuff? Like the chambers what's-his-name says Obama and he took teleporting trips to Mars in?"
You have to hand it to them, they're having a lot of fun with this one. (By the way guys, 1.21 gigawatts is a walk in the park for our flux-capacitors. Check with our Sales Department. They're $1,000,000,000 each, but we have bulk plans available.)
And the final bit of fun:
The Task Force expects to report its initial findings by April Fools' Day, 2017.
Now, we could add a few things at this juncture, by way of a patent here and a document there and a news story or two about quantum entanglement over there, a DARPA story about warp drive goals back over here, but that would ruin their fun. So commence a festival! It's a pure prank, right? or, wait a minute, they're hiding truths right out in the open, right? Or, no, it's just a prank. But then, it's a psyop... but, then again, if so, against whom? For what purpose? Wait... were they dropping acid that day?
Have fun... and...
...oh, by the way, we'll be releasing our own analysis of their report, also on April Fools' Day of this year.
See you on the flip side(which might be awhile, because I'm still laughing here.) ...
