“GO UNDERGROUND, YOUNG MAN”: DARPA’S LATEST GOAL

This fascinating story was shared by Mr. R.M., and it has me speculating wildly (of course) on what it might all mean. It seems that our friends at the Defense Advance Research Projects Agency, or as we like to refer to it here following the suggestion of Mr. J.B., the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency,  want to take humanity underground. The only question is, why? As one might imagine, the ostensible purpose is military, but as we'll see in today's high octane speculation, I can think of a few others.

Here's the article:

Dig Deep: DARPA Contest Aims to Take People Underground

According to Ms. Tia Ghose, authoress of this article, the goal of all this is to develop the technologies, both hard and soft, for deep human presence underground, with an ability to respond to "unknown conditions" quickly, a military purpose to be sure:

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced its latest challenge, called the Subterranean or "SubT" Challenge. The global competition asks entrants to develop systems that can help humans navigate, map and search in underground locations that are normally too perilous to visit.

"One of the main limitations facing war fighters and emergency responders in subterranean environments is a lack of situational awareness; we often don't know what lies beneath us," Timothy Chung, program manager in DARPA's Tactical Technology Office (TTO), said in a statement. "The DARPA Subterranean Challenge aims to provide previously unimaginable situational awareness capabilities for operations underground." [Humanoid Robots to Flying Cars: 10 Coolest DARPA Projects]

Groups all around the world will compete to solve problems that help people navigate in unknown, treacherous subterranean conditions, where time is of the essence, according to the statement.

Now, obviously, the ostensible purpose of this contest and goal is to develop new military capabilities for subterranean cartography and operational capability. This has been going on as long as there have been militaries and fortifications: the easiest way is not through, but under, or over them. "Sapping" or digging beneath an enemy position is as old as warfare, perhaps the most famous example being the enormous tunnel and mine the British tried to dig prior to the Battle of the Somme in 1916. Then, British sappers dug a tunnel beneath the German fortified trenches and planted an enormous amount of explosives, which were then exploded at the beginning of the battle with the hopes of blowing an enormous hole in the German lines. That it certainly did. The only problem was, the Germans heard the British digging, and simply pulled back prior to the detonation, and the effect aimed for was entirely lost.

So while the DARPA project appears to be par for the course for the military-industrial complex, I cannot help but think that there may be other purposes lurking in the shadows, unstated, and herewith, my high octane speculation of the day.

Recall, for a moment, that it is the same DARPA that (1) wants to create "super-soldiers" of various types, sizes, and "capabilities" (including the capability of relying on less sleep, and being able to function in exotic environments), and (2) set the century-objective for the USSA to be "warp capable" in one hundred years. Goodbye, rockets. Thus, I strongly suspect that this "subterranean operations" initiative is related to the long-term space objectives, where such capabilities would be most valuable, and, if the indications of subterranean structures on Mars that have emerged over the years are any indicator, it's a capability that would serve any manned missions there quite well...

... particularly if one suspected there might be someone to encounter...

See you on the flip side...

  1. Lol BW Yes, I was & IT was a general observation Lmao …just like everyone just “assumes” that ANY/EVERY UFO are …aliens :)r

  2. Lol Why does everyone just ALWAYS assume that “they” are Morlock-like people,lizards,rep~toids,insect~toids & this , that & on &on …maybe “our genetic cousins” are just …that ? “they” look like us ,talk like us ,walk like us … ‘cept but 4 a little …different ?

    1. Are you referring to my question? If so, I must explain it a little better. When I stated the phrase “Morlock-like” I meant it almost literally, and a little figuratively. Since some of the blog refers to Mars and its underground environment, I *imagined* that any hominid living there would have to look quite different from humans, or better still, Earth-dwelling humans, especially when one factors in Mar’s gravity, atmosphere and any other environmental aspects that vastly differs from that of Earth’s. I thought that the Morlocks may serve my description as an example of genetic deviation from their original version.

      I had only recently finished watching “The Time Machine” (Rod Taylor) and the Morlocks in that movie looked extremely different to their surface-dwelling genetic cousins. So such thinking is really not such a stretch of fantasy, in my opinion.

  3. Dr Farrell, do you think there are Morlock-like people living underground on Mars? Perhaps our genetic cousins ?

    We do not only know what’s below; we also don’t know what DARPA has raining down on us in the form of Chemtrails; nor do we know what radiation we’re ingesting[Fukushima] , GMOs & pesticides[apparently, “we’re” the pests in ?]; and not the mention all the unknowables being instigated against our living spirit.
    Going down into the darkness of DARPA’s objectives is certainly symbolic of the times “we’re in.
    Perhaps now that the oceans are being radiated and depleted of oxygen; the trees being wiped out[no oxygen] on land – DARPA is sending us from the land of plenty[BD, before DARP] into the land downunder, where women glow and men plunder?

  5. Military use, of course. But I am thinking of those underground ‘cities’ in Cappadocia in Turkey. Or, the ancient Longyou ‘Caves’ in China. Those required an enormous amount of labor, and so were not built for a trivial purpose…

    DARPA may know something is coming, and is preparing tech and processes. One theory was that the underground ‘cities’ were for protection from solar flares/coronal-mass-ejection events. Even gamma-ray bursts from supernovas. Another was that they provided hiding from foes who used aerial reconnaissance or even recce-satellites. Not to mention fallout from the Anunnaki civil war.

    Ah, Morlocks and Eloi…

  6. Just a quick thought. North Korea is meant to have a lot of underground stuff (for want of a better word). Maybe they want to get rid of NK for good?? Would give them another option rather than trying to bunker buster bomb them into oblivion, and prevent South Korea from being bombed back to het stone age!(?)

    Snake wants to go underground with a drill on its nose. It feels hunted on the surface.

    After all the venom flowing through the world, reptiles can no longer get a foot to the ground.

    What is a den of vipers called? A snake pit bunker?

  8. Maybe human has little body hair, that gives a tinny advantage, but over all we are not built for subterranean environment. The real question is – will the original underground dweller who has higher technology and more adapted underground environment willing to share? I would like to call it an invasion and it will only lead to epic fail.

  9. If “they” are terraforming planet earth, it would include the entire planet and not just the surface. Darpa even makes a game of it where the humans devise new ways to destroy our planet and each other.

    1. If Darpa honestly think they already have the power and capabilities to do anything, then they are only deceived by their stupidity and egocentric, there are more than one species of intelligent life form share earth with human, they may even have more advance technology, if people like Darpa going to destroy the earth, what will these intelligent life form think? They going to allow it by hop into their spaceship and take off?

      Don’t know why I suddenly think of Kim Jong-un, he brag about the North Korean technology innovation, give me a break!! That is like more than 50 years old technology, he actually show it to his fellow country men, to solidify his rule. Chinese call it – Paper Tiger. Yes I’m hinting Darpa the paper tiger, they can only bully people like us, but when it comes to other intelligent life form who living underground, I have my reservation to their capabilities.

  10. Just as an aside re super soldiers – recently I have read quite a few articles re cannibalism being discovered around the world – some of it sounding almost organised, there was a recent Russian case. A great addition to being a super soldier would be to cannibalise one’s enemies without any health / gag reflex problems and no need to find food. Simply kill and eat or be programmed to want to kill so you can eat. Just a thought.
