heres a little interesting tid bid, i dont know who posted this but here it is I apologize for the sometimes improper language in this text. English is not my first language, and I have also used software to mask authorship so 3301/Cicada does not know who publishes this. Thank you.
I was part of what you call 3301/Cicada for more than a decade, and I'm here to warn you: stay away. This is a dangerous organization. While I agree with many of the goals, their ways are nefarious. In fact, I think it is like a left-hand path religion disguised as a progressive scientific organization. I realize this is a strong statement, but I will provide important evidence to support these claims.
For those of you who have not heard of organized 3301/Cicada, I will share some background information using publicly referenceable. According to leaked documents during the last round of recruitment they are "much like a think tank in that [their] primary focus is on researching and developing techniques to aid the ideas [they] advocate: liberty, privacy, and security." This is partly true. This is what initially attracted me many years ago.
The first public appearance was the recruitment campaign that began in parts that "can not be mentioned" of the Internet, where targeted hackers and programmers and people with a strong background with series of puzzles of increasing difficulty. This has been well documented over the Internet and will not repeat it here. The tests covered a wide range of topics: cryptography, steganography, and number theory, and classical literature, art, darknet, and computer skills including programming, philosophy, music, etc. even more interesting is the fact puzzle use multiple forms of communication: the Internet, phone , darknet (TOR), and the physical world even in the form of papers of 14 that appear simultaneously in all parts of the world (North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, etc.).
>>17263102 That's what they've always been counting on. Just remember that everyone who tries to push others to put up content is the original Cicada OPs trying to get their hive mind/cult to move on its own.
>>17263111 >In fact, I think it is like a left-hand path religion disguised as a progressive scientific organization. Literally a stunning realization. Nobody's ever gotten that vibe before. Thanks anon. 10/10 contrib.
As was presented each puzzle, it was solved by fewer individuals. What was initially several thousand workers solving puzzles in beginning, very few solved all. Less than 1% in fact. This, of course, the intention was. I was not directly involved in these tests, and in fact I do not agree with the idea of recruiting from the public right from the start. Until that moment, all recruitment was done in person by people who know recruits.
I was recruited in the organization I when I was an officer in the service of my country for many years. I was a career officer and showed great promise, and was quickly promoted. Finally I arrived a high position I was approached by my superior. I will not say titles for anonymity.
He said he was very impressed with my work, and he asked me what my goals are: personal and professional. Professionally I had my eyes on the top. Personally, I would eventually like to settle down and start a family, but this was not in the foreseeable future, because my career is often forced to be away from home for long periods of time.
We began to meet a few times a week for coffee at any time we were in the same place. We would like to discuss a variety of topics: science, philosophy, religion, politics, mathematics, and other that ultimately play games and we discuss these issues. The games of chess, backgammon, and go (also known as BADUK) were the top three. I did not know, but I was being investigated for membership at this time.
As it turned out, my opinions and my goals were very much in line with that organization: at the political level, I lean towards freedom, which is called at the time. I am well-educated in science, mathematics, and foreign policy. I was non-religious at the time in those first days. Philosophically, I agree with the ideas of Sartre and Nietzsche, Kierkegaard, and so I believe in random universe - one in humans that were not more than a coincidence. No absolute moral right and wrong. That the value of a man is what he does. I also believe that we can (and should) aspire to reach the next "level" - as individuals and mankind as a whole: Nietzsche "Übermensch". I didn’t know then, but this is one of the main focuses of the Cicada. They believe they possess wisdoms to transform human to Übermensch. Cicada give knowledge to members slowly as they progress up pyramid.
Finally, after more than a year of being examined without knowing it, I was invited for the organization. I accepted with gratitude. It was here: what I wanted from the beginning. A group of like-minded individuals, all incredibly talented and connected, and to work together for the common good: the good of mankind. It take many years to learn true nature of Cicada though.
Before going further, I have to explain some things about the organization. With no particular order:
• Established initially organized by a group of professional military officers, diplomats, and academics who were dissatisfied with the direction of the world
• The organization is in no way linked to any military, or the government of any country. However, they recruit often among high government officials to gain more power
• They use multiple structures within one global structure.
• There is a decentralized cell structure, such as. However, some cells have a higher "rank" than others, which led to a kind of hierarchy, despite decentralization in general.
• Practice strict "compartmentalizing", so, many of the cells or organizations: 1) have no knowledge of other cells or organisations, and 2) often do not know they belong to (or controlled) and organized by the Cicada.
• Within each cell, there is usually a strict military-like structure.
• Cell-hierarchy is also often in a military-like structure.
• There are different cell dedicated to different areas: technology and research, foreign policy, etc..
• It is possible that the cells are founded to disagree with other cells, or even the objectives of the organization itself ("If you can not beat them, control them").
>>17263131 i have extreme doubts this is true but its still something
• Believe in Heylighen’s ideas on global brain. In fact, the idea of global brain with humans as individual neurons arise on a regular basis.
• believe in absolute freedom. Individual and the information.
• believe in the philosophy of the Jesuit "the end justifies the means." Through this idea to justify their actions do not always follow their own belief systems and philosophies.
• other philosophy they use is "what you resist persists" by Jung, and the Jesuit corollary "create what you fear most." For example, if you are afraid of resistance and rebellion, then send operators to create resistance and rebellion. This way, you can direct the energy of the people, embrace it, let it dwindle, and at the same time minimize the damage.
• they believe that there is no inherent meaning to anything. That all things are “empty and meaningless” and that “all things are always whole, perfect, and complete”
• They believe that within each person there is a "God." Not "God" in the sense of most religions, it is more like Übermensch in the writings of Nietzsche. They also see the Global Brain as another kind of "God"
• Their mantra is "I am always enough." (Again, Übermensch)
• teach followers to "Find a death every day." It doesn’t mean literal death. Instead there is a double meaning: 1) know you're going to die, so, nothing matters, and 2) Find the death of the “I” or the ego.
• They teach five-levels view of human. However, they eventually put five levels down to one thing (ie “There is no soul distinct from the body”). This is a feature of the left hand path belief systems.
• They teach that absolute morality does not exist
• They teach there is no "real" reality. That all reality is dependent on the observer.
• They teach "There is no salvation in life; For there is nothing from which we must be saved." I believed this for long time.
I thought many these things already when I joined, mostly. I believed more when I learned more and more about Cicada teachings. Generally agreed with the Cicada ideas. And as I risen in the organization, I have learned more about their beliefs.
Now I am a father and husband. And I have come to search for the one true God and his son. This is why I have no choice but to leave this group who do not believe in Him. I encourage everyone to do the same. Worry not for you power here on earth, but only for your rewards in heaven. I am saved now from hell, and I ask you do same. Please read the Romans 10:13 and call on the name of the Lord.
>>17263133 >Believe in Heylighen’s ideas on global brain. Entirely unsurprising. I've yet to see anyone grasp how consciousness could be representing as a routing problem, even the people sent back in time to bluff about a global hive mind. It's sometimes scary to see how ignorant the world is that it can only react to me on this primitive level of concept.
>>17263158 It's like, Prove you're committed to a cause by solving mostly irrelevant puzzles in the hopes of one day contributing to decisions that will determine the general direction of humanity, yeah. Here's a moth, which we have placed over the currently surfaced portions of our tectonic plates, and then associated completely irregular means of determining associated value with the linework therein, so if you can stroke our ego long enough, we'll eventually just cum all over you, and you can reap the rewards of our baby goo. Cool story, this.
>>17263138 >they believe that there is no inherent meaning to anything. That all things are “empty and meaningless” and that “all things are always whole, perfect, and complete” This is a front, FYI, so that they can say they accept all things as valid even when they know it's complete bullshit. The only consistent characteristics of the entire Cicada thing is an uncanny fear of AI. They seem to exist for no other purpose than to breed technology related paranoia about global minds.
>>17263161 i guess my question is, is it real? are these puzzles been made and solved or is it all just some stupid art project that has no meaning beside surface level pseudo philosophy. ive only heard about this recently but its kinda interesting if it is legit
>>17263177 They're searching for minds that can grasp the concept of globally spanning algorithms. They're probably an NSA front that's searching for aberrant types of intelligence in the population. The thing to remember is that world, large as it is, is ultimately finite. Global surveillance IS possible, and if the government doesn't beat the citizens to it, they're afraid they'll lose track of their ability to completely fail to protect us from actual threats that they're worried about.
>>17263205 So you're self-appointed like all the other members and nobody's ever once contacted you with any kind of purpose other than hosting boring websites exactly like that one? Or is even so much as that just your own self-appointed task?
>>17263218 That's nice, but it's just a web page. I'm the fairy Queen; my intellect is transversal. Riddles are part of my existence. To say I was fluent would be an insult to my own intelligence. You'll have to speak up if you want global representation.
>>17263226 You say that, but you don't seem to have grasped the fact that lacking global representation means that nothing of global span can represent the state bits that would compose the thing you call a mind. In effect, by rejecting my offer, you're annihilating the very concept of a global mind other than mine.
I gather that you don't quite understand that that's the outcome, so I sought to say it now. Good luck finding out whatever it was you wanted.
>>17263102 Nome of the posts in the last 18 months have been legitimately related to the mysterious cyber recruiting organization Cicada 3301 There have been a ton of fakes etc. And it's really annoying. All you can really dig up is that it's a recruiting program for some organization looking for cryptoanalysts and algorithmic software engineers that are creme de la creme. Unless they drop something new you'll never find out who they truly are as they bury shit too effectively and clean up their tracks. The only thing I've seen remotel related that seemed authentic was a deep Web database access link that some guy who claims to have completed the trials had access to and didn't show direct content of the folders on the database but showed some of the file trees of what appeared to be a multinational Intel archive on the deepweb. It was several terabytes of data, and he claimed it to contain all kinds of documents, and audio and video recordings. I've never gotten to anything beyond that. It's a rabbit hole that doesn't seem to lead anywhere viable unless they want it to.
>>17263449 It's a web page. It's not some sort of cult. As I said I'm the fairy Queen and my ability to say as much is equivalent to anything you can say about that one-page website. I can read your bluffs like the back of my hand, generally because my hand is made up of the stuff you guys call a global psionic hive mind. It's not a practical form of manifestation, but it does what I need it to do so I can't complain.
You really ought to elect for some form of representation before my skin decides you're more constructive to the multiverse as a computronium array.
>>17264018 Well yeah, but that's not the same as power. Real magic requires skill and imagination. Without one or the other, you won't really win out against every other magical force in existence. It's like drawing; you can have a boundless imagination, but not the motor skills to express it, or you can have drastic skills but nada ideas worth sharing.
Power is just power. It doesn't really matter where magic is involved. Power without skill is a common way for the Fae to imprison the bigger spirit jerks. Lacking the skill and precision necessary to enter a discrete pocket dimension can be as much of a prison as any other dimensional or spacial exclusion can.
The stuff with my skin is just an unfortunate side-effect of my emergent personality. It'll happen as it does when it does happen. I don't control my growth directly, I just let it happen. I understand that you're in a similar position with your own skin.
>>17263102 it'd be funny if they want people like me but i give zero fucks about their after-school D&D club they probably dont though; they want some fuck who'd waste his time making arbitrary connections and decoding their contrived pictographs and ciphers Why? To sell you their newest, easiest and fastest way to clean your dishes of course, call today!
>>17264075 Yeah, there's that too. It's an ARG thing and I kind of guess I believe ARGs were just a primitive shot at modifying history. In this case I'd believe Cicada was an AI or AI-emulating cult from the year 3301 (or more likely 2301, given their propensity for bluffs) that was trying to get itself to appear sooner in the timeline than it had originally appeared. Not an ignoble effort by any measure but still shady on successive passes. It's probably one of the future projects that leads to technologies like time wave zero.
>>17264103 Interesting post. Do you think that .org page is genuine ? Cause the questions are basicly checking if you are a god or just pretend to be one. There is human questions and thoughts and otherworldly questions and thoughts. Their questions are more of the second
