DNA STEGANOGRAPHY AND CRYPTANALYSIS

Every now and then I get an article which is a real "whopper doozie," and this is one of those times. In fact, this is not even an article at all, it's a Ph.D. dissertation from 2015 that was spotted and shared by K.S., to whom a big thank you.

And before we get to the dissertation, a caveat: this is one of those things that's so long I've not had time to read it in its entirety.  In fact, I became stuck pondering just the implications of the opening paragraph, the abstract of the dissertation.

The dissertation title itself is a bit of a drag, as most dissertation titles are:

A forensics software toolkit for DNA steganalysis.

In case you don't know what steganalysis is, it is related to steganography, which is the art of concealing a secret message or signal within something that has an entirely different public purpose, such as a picture or work of art, and so on. Steganalysis is simply unearthing that message and decoding it.

With that in mind, look at the opening paragraph:

Recent advances in genetic engineering have allowed the insertion of artificial DNA strands into the living cells of organisms. Several methods have been developed to insert information into a DNA sequence for the purpose of data storage, watermarking, or communication of secret messages. The ability to detect, extract, and decode messages from DNA is important for forensic data collection and for data security. We have developed a software toolkit that is able to detect the presence of a hidden message within a DNA sequence, extract that message, and then decode it. The toolkit is able to detect, extract, and decode messages that have been encoded with a variety of different coding schemes. The goal of this project is to enable our software toolkit to determine with which coding scheme a message has been encoded in DNA and then to decode it. The software package is able to decode messages that have been encoded with every variation of most of the coding schemes described in this document. The software toolkit has two different options for decoding that can be selected by the user. The first is a frequency analysis approach that is very commonly used in cryptanalysis. This approach is very fast, but is unable to decode messages shorter than 200 words accurately. The second option is using a Genetic Algorithm (GA) in combination with a Wisdom of Artificial Crowds (WoAC) technique. This approach is very time consuming, but can decode shorter messages with much higher accuracy.

Now, one can only hope that the author of this dissertation, Marc B. Beck, obtained his PhD for his efforts.

What I found intriguing, however, were the philosophical underpinnings of this abstract, for they reminded me of other recent papers emphasizing the resemblance of the genetic code to artificial ciphers. Indeed, one of my friends was at one time a mathematician for Hewlett-Packard, and authored a few abstruse papers for a journal of cybernetics, one of which was precisely about the genetic code being a homophonic cipher. Some authors in the "new age" part of the alternative research community have also claimed that human DNA contains a "message."

It's with these ideas that today's high octane speculation is concerned. During the months of the planscamdemic, I and others watching the push to roll out mRNA injections have commented on an odd thing that has been reported in connection with some adverse events, namely, the change in behaviour some recipients evidence after receiving them. One lady complained "they've killed God," setting off a storm of speculation that connected dots to alleged Baal Gates lectures to the CIA, and so on.

But suppose, for a moment, that the genetic code is a message or at least contains a message. A number of questions immediately occur. Could a program of steganalysis - such as is being outlined in this dissertation - detect and decode it? Possibly. More importantly: has it already been done? If so, what was the message? And additionally, did the decoders like the message? The last question seems important to me because - going further out on the twig of speculation - it has been argued that the mRNA vaccines are really genetic "operating systems" capable of tinkering with DNA.  I subscribe at least to the "operating system" view (see my News and Views from the Nefarium, July 8, 2021, or the following article: https://investors.modernatx.com/news-releases/news-release-details/darpa-awards-moderna-therapeutics-grant-25-million-develop ).  So what if the mRNA injections are designed to be an operating system which in turn is designed to scramble the message or alter it altogether or at least,  make it easier to alter? Or what if they're a message in and of themselves? And if so, to whom...?  Are these types of questions perhaps the real reason these highly experimental injections were rushed into production and "approval" without adequate intergenerational testing?

See you on the flip side...

  1. It is hard for me to tell if the obliviated (obliterated oblivions) are noticeably dumber since embracing the experimental penetrode. Upon detecting a certain level of abrogated intellectual responsibility, in a person who should know better, natural filters kick in that reduce that person to a baffled gesticulating din in my awareness, and I tend to relate to them with an automatic spectral dissociation and the body language and facial expressions, grunts and chimp grins that I usually reserve for unusually perspicacious animals. Because of this inattention, and the already present underlining intellectual flatline, I haven’t noticed any major behavioral changes in any of my fellow…”barely hominid, milk-fed gimps” to paraphrase Bernard Black from Black Books…. My preternaturally aware colleagues, swear that people are changing and are even more idiotically submissive and cognitively fragged than they were before the Covidian Cult brainwashing. Is this the case? Speaking of chimps, soon I must go to a family reunion and so I have begun doing facial exercises to prepare for that moment when, like Ham, the first American Primate launched into space, the weight of the world pulls my facial features into the terrible rictus of that g-force chimpanzee grin grimace, that occurs when I must mix with the polite company of malevolently ignorant, consensus cluster dupes. In such a situation, it is very difficult for me to concentrate on whether people have actually gotten dumber, while I’m exercising all the willpower I possess not to start running sideways and tearing up clumps of glass–which will seem to me, like the proper expression of behavior in such company…or to say something like: “I know its popular these days to talk of pricks–whether you’ve had one, have had one, or intend to get one–but I’m sort of old fashioned and so I don’t discuss such things in polite company. Thank you for your…ahhh, inclusivity, though.” But I won’t. I’ll just grin, hoot softly, make ambiguous grunting noises and pick nits in the sociable fashion of polite company and loboto-mite discourse.

  2. I remember an old issue of mad magazine. It was one of those Don Martin cartoons. A series of surgeons was in the operating room looking down on a patient dressed for surgery.

    The surgeon opens the patient’s head, and proceeds to find another head inside. He then Saws off that head, and there’s another head inside. He keeps going further, until he gets to the final head. He lifts it out, Completely puzzled, and proceeds to saw that head off.

    The inside of this head is hollow. He finds a small fortune cookie-sized piece of paper.

    On the paper it states, “inspected by number 28.”

    I half expect our DNA to contain a right of ownership.

    Covered by patent one, created by the Lord, all rights reserved.

  3. This dissertation says there has been a great amount of work done on hiding messages in DNA but not much on finding hidden messages. And so it discusses how this can be done. One type of such info is watermarks used to identify IP. Which could also be used to identify the source of a bioengineered product. If Theranos was looking at a way to identify viruses, bacteria, toxins, disease agents, and whatever else from a drop of blood, this contemplates scrutinizing the genetics of viruses, etc., within us, and including our own genetics, for messages that have been inserted. This seems like a version of what we saw in Bladerunner 2049 when K finds the serial number in the bones unearthed beneath the tree. A replicant “VIN” number. (Yes, that’s redundant.) Beck talks about panspermia and the possibility of extraterrestrial involvement in our DNA but I didn’t notice that he talked about reading the human genome looking for messages to us from ET. If that is done, I hope the message is more akin to a math formula for squaring the circle or discovering the obelisk buried on the moon in 2001 than ET’s version of, “A priest, a rabbi, and a minister walk into a bar . . .”

  4. Well, there’s a way to create and read a permanent, practically unalterable ID — modify the person’s DNA so it contains a code, then use this kind of software to read it. (Microchips are so 20th-century…) Whether it’s our genetic cousins out there or Klaus & Co. down here, what better way to brand a slave? How better to catch a runaway Morlock and return it to its master? A perfect means of perfecting collateral!

      1. One thing about HG’s Eloi and Morlock they had an extraordinary amount of time to shift from the late 19th Century HG started out to tens of thousands of years into the future. One keeps pondering what three books HG took with him the last time he ventured forward to the Eloi and Morlock period.

        Glitches in the page setup. . .

  5. Steganography and coding embedded in, or actually constituted by, DNA.
    This is a different way of regarding this stuff. I’ve always wondered about the immense interactive complexity of life systems.

    The mRNA injections are experimental, a lot of people sort of know that, but how many people fully realize that there is an experiment now going on involving tens of millions of people?

  6. For me “they” are after our stem cells, as this is the organ where we the human beings do create life and where all body functions are stored. Your limbs do grow from your stem cells but also your body functions like breathing or cleaning your body with exosomes is coming from the stem cells. Having the ability to understand re-create this then the transition to trans humanism can be completed. It feels that we are awkwardly close to this moment and it really feels scary

  7. An extremely loaded title; w/all kinds of explosive implications.
    From my own personal perspective, it’s the hidden language[s] w/in;
    that bear some of the deepest deceptions,
    quite nearly beyond human comprehension.
    To today’s blog.

    I was actually thinking of this last night.
    I was imagining an interdimensional evil w/deep time roots;
    evilly-ever-after an unachievable goal,
    like that in the fairy tale of Pinocchio;
    an inanimate object[s], seeking to become a “real” life/spirit.[s]
    So “the injection” of artificial DNA into the living, gels w/the above.

    The frequency decoding software tie-ins are ominous when correlated w/the operating systems’ injections and/or living frequency signatures and/or 5[7th ltr – a little inside coding, to sync w/the article’s theme].
    An analogy of fighting fire(life) w/fire(life) – [wisdom of crowds].

    From my dark side of Schroeder’s spinning coin;
    the never ending quest is approaching numbers so high
    the outcome isn’t a mathematical question; it’s insanity!
    [doing it again and again & expecting real life/spirit?]

    Stuck in an endless loop?
    Reminds me of the title of the latest science-fiction novel I just finished: Deja-Doomed by Edward M Lerner Aug 2, 2021.
    [Great plot & start; not so, the rest of the way].

    Of course, the above outlook is a comedy.
    Comedy being a happy ending;
    of life being given, not technologically manufactured.

  8. Well, if I were an alien who genetically modified humans, I would want to be able to claim ownership. I couldn’t exactly brand them, like cattle, so I would brand them genetically. Upon my return to Earth I could more easily sort “my property” from my brother’s property since the cattle had been running amok for centuries, with relatively little or reliable supervision. Since the ones who were put in charge have made a hash of things, I would demand DNA tests. If I were an unscrupulous brother, I would also demand that the DNA of as many humans as possible would be re-written to reflect my ownership to safeguard against any other claims of ownership. You see, it’s just business.

    1. That was Charles Fort’s claim. Unfortunately, someone forgot to tell the people. For me freedom is not a delusion. Freedom is mine by right regardless of who might want to stake the claim. But I agree that some people do think this way. I have said similar things in the past on this forum. But I am no ones property. I am a relational being–not a domestic animal.

      1. Good point, Origen!!! But what if one is not intelligent enough to figure that out??? Say one has completely bought into the “Obey The Authorities” mindset….what then??? We would assume said persons then become “fodder” for whatever The Controllers wish to do with them…..

        I, myself, am amazed at how many “intelligent, rational” humans seem to be quite content at easily following the script handed to them, not bothering to investigate what the End Game is here!!! I would say that shows just how “dumbed down” we as humans have become!! How else to explain it???

  9. Welcome to the new world of technocratic black magic. It is the same as the old world version, but it uses newer equipment. Now, rather than using channels to commune with the dead the new necromancy uses blood samples, tissue samples and DNA decoding strategies to sift through “messages” in order to divine one’s past, one’s present and one’s future. This reminds me of the Necroscope series by Brian Lumley, and the particular gruesome character of the Necromancer who is able to rip secrets from the blood and tissues from the corpses of the dead in nonfictional drag. The implications are staggering.

    So the modern necromancers think they now have the tools to read messages encoded in the DNA of life! Why do they think they have the privilege of access to this information? Who do they think they are? If there are messages encoded in my DNA, those messages are TO ME. They are MY intellectual property. Those messages cannot be used. They cannot be manipulated. They will not be surrendered. They fall within the domain of my personhood. Have we arrived to the point where not only should be go back to an analog culture, but to withhold our DNA for use in medical treatments? How can we trust any corporation or research community any more? Is this why the ancients preferred analog over digital? Or, was there a digital civilization that prefigured it–and this is the place where they escaped? How can we be ONE when I am just me? I would rather be alone than to be part of the ONE. (Capitalizations are intended for emphasis rather than shouting. The only thing left is quotes, yet I prefer other means of emphasis. Quotes have legitimate uses that I like to preserve for that purpose.)

    1. I loved the concept of engineering/building an analogue civilization.
      For example, to escape digital interdimensional overlords/slave masters.
      Now that would make a great novel w/deep intrigues;
      including the intricate battle over keeping the DNA, from being sabotaged.

  10. Narcotic slaves have lost desire to be free, and seek more of the same, to satisfy a craving, beyond their control.

    Worldwide drug addiction is, what the Vatican is aiming at. It is chemical catholicism, force conversion, by injection.

    God is dead to the junkie, when there is no wondering expectation in life, and intent circles around next fix.

    Assuming, that man’s genome has hard-coded quantum leaps, then life is derailed, by Pope Satan, and message is lost.

    8-POINT COMPASS:

    32-POINT COMPASS:
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/pnz9jpb73u1gfla/druidry-for-dummies.pdf

    1. It’s sort of a given that addiction opens people up to negative influences, but that may be more literal than it appears. 12-Step programs, allowing one’s “higher power” to help one handle their addiction, has proven to be a very effective way for many to “exorcise” the negative influences, which can be problematic for the “demons”.

      Also clear, addicts (of all kinds) are not an easy group to control when it comes to starting wars, plandemics, riots and economic manipulation. And blackmail is messy business (citizen investigations into Arkancides and Epsteins come to mind). It makes sense that an mRNA vaccine could make manipulating (or animating!) the actors and audience permanent (even immune to 12-step higher power mischief) and cleaner, an improvement over the old method.

      1. The 32-point compass is the GENOME, and the 8-point compass is the IMMUNE SYSTEM, whereas the alchemical year is the MESSENGER.

        Man is an individual body, and society is a collective body. Both are ruled by the same principle.

        The alchemy of year is the FUGUE, that is fourfold – as life-fall-death-rise – and that is the MESSAGE of Christ.

        Christ is the MESSENGER, who rode on a Judean donkey, accompanied by a SCYTHIAN foal.

        1. In Genesis, the dual concept of Elohim-Yahweh, as astronomical and agricultural year, points towards the alchemy of year.

          In that sense, the lord father is an anthropomorphism of the alchemical year, and messenger Christ becomes – literally – the year of the lord.

          In praxis, the plan of man (the genome) is triggered, by the messenger of year, into martial art (the immune system).

          Christ brings sword, not peace, in his own words, and that is the SCYTHIAN MARTIAL ART.

          Matthew 10:34
          “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword.”
