NSA Disinformation – Watch The Watchers With Me (Part 2)

Mon Jan 9, 2012 2:59 PM EST

Before we get to the good stuff, analyzing the technology employed in the NSA’s global listening network, I thought I would deal with one more instance of disinformation.  This one appeared on Slashdot.org on Christmas Day under the title of “The Science of Santa”.  I  …

NSA Disinformation – Watch The Watchers With Me

Sun Jan 1, 2012 3:14 AM EST

Its been around seven months since my last article on the NSA’s technology. I have been watching the slow spread of the information throughout the web and the disinformation it has spawned. It has been very interesting to watch the spies at work.

Tue May 3, 2011 8:45 PM EDT

What is the connection between Guantanamo bay, human experimentation, color revolutions, middle-east uprisings, Total Information Awareness and the War On Terror?  It almost sounds like the lead in to a very funny punchline.  Unfortunately, no such punchline exists.&nb …

Build A Radio That Does Not Require Batteries

Tue May 3, 2011 12:35 PM EDT

I have been tinkering around with a very basic crystal radio over the last week.  For those that do not know what that means, a crystal radio is a very basic radio used mainly to listen to AM broadcasts.  Vital to the war effort during WWII, “foxhole radios” as they we …

Can A Satellite Read Your Thoughts? – The Target’s Story

Wed Mar 30, 2011 5:19 AM EDT

With so many articles on this topic, I thought it was about time that a high level overview was produced. So, in this article we are going to focus on what this system can do and present it in plain English.

Can A Satellite Read Your Thoughts? – Hunting For The Signal

Wed Mar 23, 2011 4:39 PM EDT

Well, the inevitable has happened. With all this analysis showing that human perception can be controlled by ELF radio signals, I decided to create a setup to analyze signals in this portion of the spectrum. So, what did I find? The Setup

Can A Satellite Read Your Thoughts? – Eye-Witness Testimony

Sun Mar 6, 2011 5:49 AM EST

If you have been following this series for the last year or so, you would know that I demonstrated how naturally occurring radio signals can be reconstructed by computer to betray thoughts, feelings, sight and sound and how such information can be communicated back to the body.

The End Of The Airforce?

Mon Feb 14, 2011 3:07 PM EST

Considered the work horse of the modern military, the airforce has played a pivotal role in conflicts for the last century. As with most things in life, everything has its day. The last two decades have seen a surge in development of both unmanned and autonomous aircraft.

Should Your Vote Depend On Your IQ?

Thu Nov 11, 2010 3:47 PM EST

I have been thinking a lot about how Democracy appears to be broken across the world. From unaccountable governments, to rises in extremism all forms, it does seem that some form of modification to our current models is required.

Can A Satellite Read Your Thoughts? – Physics Revealed – Part 4

Sat Oct 9, 2010 2:48 PM EDT

In the last article, we refined our figures for the detection of weak radio emissions, from a single neuron, at orbital distances. Whilst the signal was weak, less than -200dBW, it was nothing outrageous that a modern satellite array could not detect.

Einstein’s Missing Pages – The Energy And Mass Relationship

Sun Sep 12, 2010 2:28 PM EDT

Unless you have spent your life living under a rock you will have heard of the equation E=MC^2. Often touted as the equation that led to the nuclear bomb, it implied that Energy and Mass were interchangeable.
