So last night on /b/ a former government contractor revealed that he was partially "in the know" regarding some earth shattering information. I will summarize it all if you like...
Below is a lost of the "facts" presented by an anonymous user on /b/ who claimed to have been hired to transfer classified government documents (U.S.) from microfiche to a modern medium (presumably digital hard drives). He was contracted along with around 70 other people to do this work in 2007. Everything that he was reading and copying was written in code, but after a working with the information for long enough he was able to crack the code, claiming that it wasn't a particularly difficult one. He did not take any notes, for obvious reasons, but tried to remember as much as possible.
For description's sake, he referred to any corresponding parties within the documents as 'voices'. This simply means that any government officials that are reporting their involvement or interactions with the project are not listed by name, but do describe their experiences in detail. These are likely debriefing documents.
The basics are as follows:
- there is a large, square object located on Earth, specifically on 'American property'. This description may mean that it is not actually within the continental United States (possibly some acquired territory or research base elsewhere).
- The object is somewhat mechanical or technological, so it is referred to (by the author) as The Device. It is roughly 4,000 square feet, and consists of two levels, though apparently the separation of the two levels is very strange.
- The Device was discovered by the Americans in 1941 (but there may have been knowledge of it earlier than that). However botanists and geologists testing the area around the device concluded that it has been sitting where it is for an extremely long time (the author hinted at hundreds of thousands of years).
- Quite a lot of modern technology has been inspired or copied from the Device, including WiFi. Interestingly, the author pointed out that nothing has actually been reverse-engineered. This is because it is apparently impossible to disassemble or dismantle anything on or within the Device.
- The author described the Device as seeming to always be 'on', but operating at very low power. He likened it to a facility running on emergency lights after a power outage. However, the officials in charge do not know if this is the case (it may simply require very little power).
- Perhaps most important is the 'door' or 'portal' inside the device which will be described further later.
The author went into further detail about his tasks, what he was able to remember and why he felt the need to share it on a message board (/b/ is part of 4chan.org, a site popular for being completely untraceable.*) Like many others he felt comfortable revealing 'secrets' since even if this was noticed by the government, it is unlikely anyone would know specifically who he is (70 others were on the same project).
He was also quick to point out that nothing he ever read mentioned anything about aliens. Obviously the Device was not made by our civilization, but the documents never once mention aliens or spaceships or anything of the sort.
After a lot of questions and the like from others on /b/ he felt encouraged to reveal some of the really strange things that he had read. There were basically two major revelations that stuck with him. He admitted that he is not an extremely smart man, so the fist revelation has bothered him for years because he cant get his head around it. Essentially, many of the 'voices' in the transcripts describe the device as being the 'only actual thing in the universe that is real' and 'more real than anything else we have ever quantified'.
The second revelation was more of an event. At some point in the 70 year history of the American interaction with the device, four people were inside when a 'door' opened. This was unlike any type of door the way that we would visualize it, but those involved all describe it as a portal or gate, etc. Once fully open, the four people actually saw themselves on the other side. Not reflections or projected images, but four tangible near-duplicates (apparently there were tiny variations, but they were positive about the others being like copies of themselves). They were able to fully interact with their doubles and communicate with them, though the author either chose not to include the details of their talk, or they simply aren't recorded in the coded text. The major thing that he added was that this was completely and utterly life changing for the four involved, in that it filled them with great humility and understanding. Almost as if they now knew that they were nowhere near as important as human beings believe themselves to be. Apparently one of the four never shows up in the documents again after this event.
So that's that. Could be a talented writer trolling people online... could be a completely honest guy who felt the need to share. The thread actually 404'd out of nowhere before much more could be addressed, but it was fascinating to imagine.
I was wondering how long this would take to get to /x/
It's copypasta in that I typed this up on my ipad earlier today, but the thread I described happened on /b/ last night. That OP may have been working from pasta for all I know.
>- Quite a lot of modern technology has been inspired or copied from the Device, including WiFi. Interestingly, the author pointed out that nothing has actually been reverse-engineered. This is because it is apparently impossible to disassemble or dismantle anything on or within the Device.
But I'm still interested. Anyone got a screencap?
There's a bit more regarding some of the questions people were asking. An interesting thing he mentioned was that if you were to consider a device like a transporter on Star Trek... how it completely destroys something in one location and creates a perfect copy in another location... How that concept should be applied to our reality when we question the universe.
I remember him sayin they found a ship or something but no crew and also another ship that was "out of sync" and thats where we got synchronize from. Unfortunately there were so many questions and so many ass trollz things that theard was unbearably long
>a site popular for being completely untraceable.*
I think the boiled down concept he was trying to express is that this reality is nothing like we think it is, and a few people know the truth. It seemed like we was saying that this universe is not unique, and may even be a 'program' (one of many)
>Anyone got a screencap?
I read the original thread, or most of it (but didn't screencap anything) and I think I remember the dude saying he was certain it was solidly under american control, wherever it was. And at least as early as 1941.
>but the documents never once mention aliens or spaceships or anything of the sort.
>they found a ship
He only used the term "ship" to give us a reference point, since it had walkways and lights and such. It seems like they ever really knew exactly what it was, if it was ever mobile, etc.
thanks for clearing that up. anything else you remember? What about you OP?

Ah yes, we already have our first fool here now. Notice the subtle aggression that tells you he is extremely insecure and seeks secret knowledge to put himself above others.
A fascinating specimen of native /x/ fauna.
Exactly. People release secrets and confess crimes on here constantly because it's all so readily dismissed as lies. This makes it a great place to get shit off of your chest, and it keeps whistleblowers from being a real threat to secrecy because "who's gonna believe 'em?"
Mankind has just began probing into the quantum realm of things. Through quantum physics, the leading physicists have done experiments that has proven quantum entanglement, as well as the probability wave, characterized by electrons in the double-slit test. The probability is that we never really know where an electron is in a particular space, but the probability of it being there. Could it be that the paradigm of the human mind can only fathom one possibility, one dimension at a time? "The Device" would possibly be a gate to other dimensions, allowing you to gaze at yourself in another timeline. Everything is an illusion my friend. The Device is the only physical truth we have.
This is sorted what I was gleaning from the whole thread. The Device showed them that they are one copy of possibly billions of versions of themselves, and perhaps none of them are real. This would humble a man alright.
Of all the threads in /x/, you come to this thread to spread hate and remind of us that this is not a fact (which we already know). I wasn't trying to claim it is not so. I'm just interested, why this thread specifically? What are you, a government agent spreading hate and disinfo about this? Why do you bother? You seem to have no interest in /x/ related, you only came here to remind us that this isn't a fact....why this thread?
>inb4 native is more angered
If you don't understand why I am interested in YOU, you must be a fool
Look at the way the /x/oophile irrationally beats his chest in a threat display. Perhaps he is trying to attract a mate from among the other members of the board? Absolutely remarkable behavior.
Seeing how far we have come technologically in the last 100 years, it's hard not to be optimistic of what we will be experiencing in our life time. The study of quantum physics and mechanics among other things could allow humans to see a truer universe, one not so separated from itself and us. We shall just wait and see.
My oh my, it seems to be waving a crude flag in our direction. Given the previous threat displays, this must be a further threat or some sort of insult. It's amazing how well they function and grasp abstract concepts despite their shortfalls in intelligence compared to other sapiens.
Man, this thread is reminding me of some crazy as fuck transhumanist site that I visited. It was incomprehensible most of the time but kept talking about how humans were like ants and had a quote from some old text along the lines of -If you go this way you will become more than God and God will be like nothing to you and you will be lost-
Not at all what it was I really can't remember but, it scared the shit out of me I never went back to the site. Felt like I was learning something that shouldn't be. Damn I wish I could remember what it was called.
Also, the Monolith gave monkeys the power to kill a dominate, which furthered their evolution in a way making them God.Then it fast forwards to the space age like all of history meant nothing until the Monolith revealed itself again.
All life would be meaningless without whatever it is that the Monolith is trying to do.
>All life would be meaningless without whatever it is that the Monolith is trying to do.
but what's the purpose of the people who built the monolith?
did they also have a monolith of their own?
if so, what's the purpose of the monoliths?
Love it. Sounds like a very cool site. If there is indeed a creature running all of these simulations who is the ultimate 'us', then it would indeed be amused by the gods we created with our minuscule minds.
that's because i work in telecommunication and know a fuckload about the mechanisms behind wifi, as well as it's history
it's not some magick cube, we owe more for faraday, maxwell, hertz... and they certainly didnt make their discoveries becuase some ancient cube spoke to them
maybe the cube told them not to tell others about talking to it
Hey bro, check this site out: http://www.qsl.net/n9zia/
If you ignore the political diatribes, they got some pretty cool projects.
Check out the "Military and Espionage" and "Radar" sections in the Other Projects bit.
Well think for a minute about the fact that this government employee does not work I your field, and would not know the history of WiFi or radio. He is likely just misinterpreting information.
Last nighs thread started throwing around the term 'artist'. Somewhere, there is an artist who has sketched billions of self portraits, each a little different. You are simply one of those drawings. The 'real' you is the artist, somewhere.
>"because some ancient cube spoke to them"
nobody said someone made wi-fi because they saw/heard/interacted-with the so called "Device". It was an indirect inspiration, maybe someone told someone about a device that contains many connections connected to a singular(internet maybe?), which I'm not sure because I don't work in telecommunications.
>"fuckload" = 25 mins of google?
I figured this out when I broke through on dmt and it doesnt humble you it makes everything seem simple and retarded.
The purpose of out holographic reality is to fill the nothingness with everything ever through the multiverse theory. Everything that could ever happen happened in some universe. All of time is one moment. We are only mediums to observe this process so it would have an audience.
My theory from all that I know is that the Monolith or "device" is a catalyst for evolution. It is "all that we are" in a very simple state. But to the evolved beings that created it, it is probably nothing more than a calculator. Something they already have access to but more conveniently.
I just read the Kyballion and it says that we will constantly grow to higher and higher levels, and those who are extremely more advanced than us would look at human behavior like we look at the behavior of matter. It has intelligence but it is so simple and predictable.
So when we access the "device" or "Monolith" it can only show us so much until we integrate what we learned and can access even more information from it.
The purpose for us would be so we could evolve and learn how to be more of ourselves.
The "ultimate" purpose for the transcended beings is obviously unknown to us.
You're right. Everything is simple and basic. Our measurable universe is just 12 particles and 4 forces with an infinite number of possibilities. This gives us the illusion of complexity, but in reality, everything is stupid.
>I was being gently sarcastic
ah ha! that statements sparks the juxtaposition of common sense. We see the data showing the enormous emptiness (the void) in matter, but that knowledge just yet cannot really be applied. We experience things as solid, as whole, as real but through detailed measurement, we see quite the contrary. Maybe our brain and our senses are more barriers than windows to our world, shielding us from the true beauty of God.
What's the deal with Monolith's
maybe we shouldn't force philosophical meaning (or the lack of it) onto everything
there's no reason debating the /meaning/ of shit not actually being solid, especially not when we can't even properly define what the shit is if not solid.
sure from a scientific viewpoint it's good to know, because then we can create cool things like nanotubes and spectrometers but it doesn't change anything, philosophically.
when you're mentioning the "detailed measurement" leading to a different picture than what we usually have we can step it down another level and make a detailed measurement of the detailed measurement, we'll then see that the actual part of the atom that actually is "stuff" and not empty void are just fields of probability, not even THOSE particles are actually particles, they're just the probability of the energy of a particle being localized (interactable) at some given location, and when we step it down a level more we'll get to the realization that different "particles" (of the same kind) aren't separate entities, they're just manifestations of energy in ONE single field.
so now suddenly solid things aren't just not solid, the parts that actually "are solid" aren't solid either, and they're also not different things, they're all the same thing.
then we can step it down yet another level and we get to the definition of spacetime itself, if it's all just some fields "spanning the entirety of the universe", is space and time actually real things?
i mean, since all inter/action is based on the "states" of some seemingly arbitrary fields what's to say the appearance of some "room" in which the fields reside is actually real?
turns out it isn't, space and time are the same thing, "space" as in room is just a manifestation of certain fields interacting in different degrees with a specific field (the Higgs field) it's not an actual thing.
and if space isn't "real", what is time?
it's yet another thing that looked like something but it "isn't really, lol"
So its a multivac.
>there is a large, square object located on Earth, specifically on 'American property'. This description may mean that it is not actually within the continental United States (possibly some acquired territory or research base elsewhere).
I saw that movie. Great film.
There certainly are a lot of narrow minded people here for a board called Paranormal. This story has to be one go the more realistic threads in here ( there is no mention or aliens or spirits) yet nobody is willing to suspend disbelief for a moment to consider that it may be true...
Just for your information you stupid fuck :
Kubrick knew alot about occult he was involved in rituals and he knew alot of secrets thats why they killed him and cut 25 minutes of his last movie EYES WIDE SHUT. They say those 25 minutes were meant to deprogram the mind control victims. If he shows something in his movies theres a high chance of it being real. He was one of a few jews who despised jews and praised hitler. They kidnapped and tortured his daughter to make him stop but it was already too late.
mfw recently I had a spiritual experience that proved this to me. mfw humans are bi-planar beings existing in both the physical and the astral plane and the astral plane is the gate-way to all other realities and planes of existance and the amounts of realities are infinite but all versions of yourself are connected and it is possible to have a reverse lucid dream/ astral projection where instead of gaining omnipotence over reality in those "dreams" you gain omniprescence with all other reality versions of yourself.
mfw we are all tiny gods.
I couldnt find it but his close friends and his wife confirmed they took 25 minutes out of the movie. Here is a very interesting article about him :
HOLY SHIT ! HOLY SHIT ! HOLY SHIT! OP WAS RIGHT HOLY FUCKING SHIT!
>When asked by Eric Nordern in Kubrick's interview with Playboy if 2001: A Space Odyssey was a religious film, Kubrick elaborated:
I will say that the God concept is at the heart of 2001 but not any traditional, anthropomorphic image of God. I don't believe in any of Earth's monotheistic religions, but I do believe that one can construct an intriguing scientific definition of God, once you accept the fact that there are approximately 100 billion stars in our galaxy alone, that each star is a life-giving sun and that there are approximately 100 billion galaxies in just the visible universe.
Given a planet in a stable orbit, not too hot and not too cold, and given a few billion years of chance chemical reactions created by the interaction of a sun's energy on the planet's chemicals, it's fairly certain that life in one form or another will eventually emerge. It's reasonable to assume that there must be, in fact, countless billions of such planets where biological life has arisen, and the odds of some proportion of such life developing intelligence are high. Now, the sun is by no means an old star, and its planets are mere children in cosmic age, so it seems likely that there are billions of planets in the universe not only where intelligent life is on a lower scale than man but other billions where it is approximately equal and others still where it is hundreds of thousands of millions of years in advance of us.
I'm sure that you believe this happened to you, but most people fall victim to not realizing how creative and manipulative our senses are. That's really cool stuff that you describe, and it's all feasible, but you went in the wrong direction I think. We are not MORE powerful than we thought... We are considerably less powerful.
When you think of the giant technological strides that man has made in a few millennia—less than a microsecond in the chronology of the universe—can you imagine the evolutionary development that much older life forms have taken? They may have progressed from biological species, which are fragile shells for the mind at best, into immortal machine entities—and then, over innumerable eons, they could emerge from the chrysalis of matter transformed into beings of pure energy and spirit. Their potentialities would be limitless and their intelligence ungraspable by humans.
JUST HOLY SHIT!
Kubrick either knew a lot of secrets, or was just acutely aware of the true nature of things ( a few artists are, for whatever reason). Lots of dudes think that The Shining is really a story about how the government asked him to stage the moon landing and how it kind of wrecked his life... I'm now going to take another look and consider this secret facility and portal as the hidden meaning... See if it pans out.
I think i know where the device is. Anybody remembers this incident?
Not that guy, but it makes sense on the level that we are identifying the alternate-reality versions of ourselves as ourselves at all. We need some kind of connection to them for them to be us- otherwise they're just people who greatly resemble us.
I will dump more pictures. It was a weird night on /x/ i shat myself and we thought it was the real end of the world or a huge alien invasion. Whatever it was, it was real because it was on multiple radars.
I hate to bring in something as silly as a Disney video game, but is anyone familiar with the character Roxas from Kingdom Hearts? His realization that he wasn't real popped into my head while reading about this stuff.
Another picture. This thing was circling like a spiral changing its shape into perfect sacred geometrical shapes. It was weird as hell. I had a gif version of it but i lost it if anybody have it please post it.
You "void" inside molecules disappears all the time. This is what creates a black hole. If you squish the electrons into the nuclei of more and more molecules an object becomes extremely dense, generates incredible gravitational pull, and becomes a black hole. It's happened trillions of times.
I think that was meant as more of a 'nobody would bother tracing me' type comment, since it can always be seen as bullshit storytelling. I am sure most people know you can be traced or tracked.
So these things are antennas for the DEVICE?
Notice how an obelisk is actually a monolith + a pyramid on top of its head.
>An obelisk is a monolithic stone monument whose four sides, which generally carry inscriptions, gently taper into a pyramidion at the top. The ancient Egyptians usually erected them in pairs and associated them with the rays of the Sun, which increase in width as they reach the Earth. The earliest known examples, excavated at Abu Sir, Egypt, date from the Old Kingdom during the reign of Neuserre (2449-2417 BC).
HOLY FUCKING SHIT HOLY SHIT
>The Obelisk you see below was brought from Egypt and erected at the Vatican.
IM GOING INSANE!
why the fuck would the erect an obelisk from egypt in vatican what the actual fuck
Naturally , Anon.
See, Vatican is comprised of the same buddies as English aristocracy, and they have a huge hard on for anything Egyptian.
Do you know why ?
It is because they are basically the same aristocracy, they just moved from Egypt to Rome and later to London.
From which they still rule the world, with branches in Vatican and Washington.
>mfw nobody posted the real cube
theres a black stone in kabaa that nobody knows where it came from and they say it has paranormal powers.
Copied from the original thread on /b/ (regarding WiFi)
>What little we learned from this object, this tech, resulted in wifi, most communication systems, storage systems, modern tech we have today and continue to have. They were never able to move the object or dissamble more than a few minor pieces of tech, so they built around it and brought the smartest of the smart in different areas of study in at differing times to exam and poke at it to try to make any sense of it. Botanists, Archeologists, etc... were brought in to study the earth and area in and around it to attempt an explanation at the age discrepancies.
Honestly, as cool as it seems, I don't think there 25 minutes missing. The movie as it exists now is already dripping with messages about the secret elite, Beta Kitten slaves, and warnings about those who run the world. I think the version that was released was what he wanted.
Could be Poland. For some reason USA is paying tons of attention to its government, also the east of the country is basically desolate. Also it has a long history of secret american military facilities.
It's fun to speculate the location, but it could be almost anywhere. The thing isn't very big, and the Americans have installations all over the place. Really, the only thing we have to go on is that it's somewhere firmly controlled by the Americans from at least 1941 to 1979, and the surrounding area was studied by botanists and archeologists, which probably rules out Antarctica, the Arctic, and big deserts.
I don't get it, he said NO greys and NO reptillians and attributes all the sightings and abductions to "hallucinations" even though different people all saw the same thing.
Then later people start talking about alien beings though.
Well, you gotta remember that most people have a bias toward assigning mysterious things to aliens. Also, loads of folks on /x/ are pretty set in their own theories about the world, and may already have it all "figured out".
I was there, I am not sure about this. From what I read, it's mostly Poland that tries to establish strong political relations with US (or it goes both ways), whether it's proof for or against, dunno.
East of the country is somewhat underdeveloped but still first world - had no problem with finding decent hotel, wifi was rather accessible and free at many places while prices in general - in comparison with US - are quite low, even for quality goods.
Their job market sucks though, no wonder Poles now go fucking everywhere all around the world looking for cash.
Other than that, in relations to OP, I find his attempt at OC commendable but the description of item itself kind of stupid. It's really hard to base/copy any technologies off anything withotu reverse-engineering the equipment to see how it ticks.
And, like people mentioned, if posters on 4chan wouldn't be traceable, all those party vans and anons hacking anons wouldn't happen.
OP (of this thread) here... I don't know... He claimed to be just a contacted paper pusher, and the job ended 7 years ago. I can see him maybe getting a bit drunk and posting shit on /b/. Hell, I've revealed legitimate secrets on there for the fun of it.
Shit, someone needs to find those pictures of Google Earth where there are just... blank areas that don't match up.
I remember seeing one in a mountainous region in the Urals, I believe, where probably a good 10 square miles were white, in the middle of a valley.
For visualization's sake, this house is roughly 4000 square feet, same size as the Device. Something like this can be hidden almost anywhere.
they have been moving forward with a plan to either continue the movie vers or a total reboot for awhile now.
Basically, we had the radio way before WiFi and the principles behind aren't that different. We would be dumb if we discovered this application (not even the technology, just a variant of something we already used) of frequencies thanks to some alien instrument.
The whole "it's the realest thing", however, is actually a good concept. I always liked stories about forgotten technologies, specially massive and undiscovered ones. This would make one of the best SCP ever, it could even be related to the Broken God.
Well its over /x/...
I have a theory.
If this thing is, as has been said, 'the realest thing', what's to say it couldn't rewrite our reality to it's own ends? That many discoveries that we've had that we believe to have been built on those that came before are the product of reality changing to become more cohesive to those inventions?
I'M NOT EXACTLY SURE WHAT YOU'RE DOING WRONG, BUT I AM SURE YOU'RE DOING SOMETHING WRONG
In the series of books, the monoliths are multiple, and are used to spread advanced lifeforms around the universe.
You are almost completely right, but both the movie and the book are extensions of a previous Clark's work, I think it was called "The Sentinel"
Nobody does it quite like Kubrick, but there are a handful of directors who are great at using symbols. Artists in other mediums are worth mentioning as well. Dali was on to something, but kind of hid his intentions.
Aronofsky comes to mind. Especially in The Fountain. I don't think he has 'secret knowledge' but his own ideas about death and infinity are displayed in a fascinating way in that film. Double meanings everywhere, etc.
I don't have time
I've seen a few of Aronofsky's, thanks for reminding me of him.
Another fantastic one is Guy Ritchie's Revolver. Apparently he was married to madonna at the time who was into the Kabalah and motivated him to make Revolver. Movie is a mindfuck
This is HORSESHIT.
I understand desire for wanting answers, and I am not one of those militant atheist faggots that believes we are just blood sacks. Even so, only people whose twilight phase hasn't worn off would believe this.
You get a sense of the hidden nature of our reality through experience, not trolls on /b/ or assholes trying to sell books.
There is more to our existence than meets the eye but this is bullshit.
Thankfully the Americans are the one's that have control of it though. You Americans handle crazy secrets well. For all we know Obama fucks alien bitches and travels to other universes.
Sounds like some fanfiction level shitty writing OP. Who the fuck honestly beleive we copied wifi from a fucking giant cube somewhere on earth that's never been spotted from any satellite picture or anything.
God /x/ is so fucking retarded.

from the perspective of someone who has experienced the conditioning i would say that i strongly disagree with the notion of using the word 'victim' to describe those in the MK programs; by the time they are pursuing the use of your mind they have identified that you have an intact one, whereas most of the population that they passed over is operating at a diminished capacity with a reduced set of cognitive tools

tl;dr the MK kiddies are looking at the world like everyone else is shortbus special
I highly doubt it. Area 51 is almost certainly a misdirect. Odds are the craziest secrets there are just experimental planes that fly there 5-7 years before we see them elsewhere.

I mean have you thought about it? So many western journalist reported that this place is unbelievable and feels really great
I have been desperately trying to share information that may widely concern this. But it's hard to explain and even harder for most people to believe.
What is quantum teleportation? It is not the movement of matter, but the movement of information. Two years ago, there was a major breakthrough when Einstein's "spooky action at a distance" could be observed on a useful scale across two locations in the Canary Islands.
> Our experiment confirms the maturity and applicability of the involved technologies in real-world scenarios, and is a milestone towards future satellite-based quantum teleportation.
That is, photons seem to possess a property that can be manipulated, that its entangled twin instantly adopts. Some people think this reflects the interpretation of QM that says: because their probabilities are fundamentally intertwined, they are really the same particle in two different places. Which is a convenient conclusion, as it's the answer to the classical double slit question. The imperative is this: spooky action occurs by some mechanism that is faster than light. No information is transmitted between the particles.
This information has always and impressively been suppressed. Since usenet days, long before research in optics made a demonstration like this possible. What could anyone possibly have to hide about EPR, of all things, on BBS services and forums?
The arms race of data control and cryptography vs. oversight has recently reached a climax. The FBI and the NSA co-opted the strangulation of Lavabit, an asymmetrically encrypted email service. They were forced to hand over their SSL keys. TrueCrypt had to abandon their legendary open-source file encryption software because "no one knows why". Everyone following knows why. Everyone quietly shitting their pants on IRC knows why, but even there it's like they can't keep up the ghost, like they know there is someone breathing down our neck.
Who were those TrueCrypt contributors? It's not an unanswerable question. In the same way everyone can tell that the endless exploits, web-facing injections, defacement of US facing servers comes from China. The U.S. Fed dreamed up code changes that secretly and systematically weakens random seed generation into just a few predictable zones. Then, they posed as active users in the community. How long has this been going on? It is impossible to tell. It is no wonder it is abandoned. I don't know why I bother to post from Tor.
There is now knowledge so valuble that it's worth this gargantuan effort. There is talk. It's hard to listen to. When we look at the pinpoints of light in the night sky that are many thousands of years old, there are properties of this light that are uncertain. But it's uncertainty can be measured. It has been measured, for some time. It doesn't make any sense. Somewhere across infinite distances, something is sending data to something else. It's not a "ghost", like the light from distant bodies. They are on the line. We have just only plugged in.
There's the chance that all of this is a test. Every atom that makes up the world around you, including all of the other people in it are part of an experiment. When it it done, maybe 'you' get to see what is really going on.
