The Compound Eye

Plan accordingly …. 

Compound eyes, common with insects and crustaceans, are made up of thousands of individual visual receptors, called ommatidia. Each ommatidium is a fully functioning eye in itself. The insect’s “eye” is thousands of ommatidium that together create a broad field of vision. Every ommatidium has its own nerve fiber connecting to the optic nerve, which relays information to the brain. The brain then processes these inputs to create a three-dimensional understanding the surrounding space.

The compound eye is a good way to imagine how the surveillance state will keep tabs on the subjects in the near future. Unlike the dystopian future imagined by science fiction, it will not be one eye focusing on one heretic, following him around as he goes about his business. Instead it will be tens of millions of eyes obtaining various bits of information, sending it back to the data-centers run by Big Tech. That information will be assembled into the broad mosaic that is daily life.

For example, rather than use informants and undercover operatives to flesh out conspiracies against the state, the surveillance state will use community detection to model the network of heretics. Since everyone is hooked into the grid in some fashion and everyone addresses nodes of the grid on a regular basis, keeping track of someone is now something that can be done from a cubicle. There is no need to actually follow someone around as they go about their life.

For example, everyone has a mobile phone. At every point, the phone is tracking its location, which means it is tracking your location. It also knows the time and day when you go into various businesses. Most people use cards to pay miscellaneous items, so just that information would tell the curious a lot about you. Combine that information with the same information from other phones that come into close proximity with your phone and figuring out the community structure is simple.

Of course, the mobile phone is not the only input device. Over Christmas, millions of Americans were encouraged to install surveillance devices in their homes by friends and family. Maybe it was an Alexa listening device from Amazon or a Nest Doorbell surveillance device from Google. All of these gadgets are collecting data on your life inside and around your home. It is then fed to the same data-centers that have all of your movements and associations collected from your phone.

That’s an enormous amount information about the lives of the subjects, but that’s just the start of what they are collecting. Everything about property and property ownership is now kept in those same systems. Tax and earnings information are now shared with the new technological overlords. We know this because Raj Chetty told us so. He gained access to everyone’s tax information from the IRS. Since Big Tech provides the infrastructure to all government operations, they have their data too.

It turns out that the future will not be one big eye searching about for a heretic on which to focus or even thousands of such eyes. Instead, it will be tens of millions of eyes, collecting data, filtering it through a specific lens, and passing it onto massive data-centers controlled by Big Tech. It is there where the focus will narrow, looking for patterns, modeling communities and searching for any anomalies that could indicate unacceptable behavior. Big Brother will be an Indian in a cubicle.

The human eye is attached to muscles that allow it to move, expanding the field of vision and narrow in on specific items of interest. The compound eye is fixed and therefore cannot focus on a single item. It also results in nearsightedness. It is, however, exceptional at detecting motion. The mosaic of infinitesimally small images lets the insect notice the smallest movement around it. This is why flies, for example, are so good at anticipating your effort to swat them.

Big Tech’s compound eye will be similar. It will be adept at tracking movement and capturing data about the environment, but it will not be very good at focusing in on one individual or even a group of individuals. That’s where the brain takes over to interpret the data, looking for the sorts of movement that could present danger. As with insects, the compound eye has evolved for defensive purpose. Hunters need focus, prey need a broad field of vision and pattern matching.

We are seeing the precursors of what will be special teams of agents charged with focusing in on potential trouble. Those “Trust & Safety” squads on social media are the early attempts at this. Algos were created to look for patterns and movement that would then warrant further review. The “focus teams” then look more carefully at individuals inside an identified community. This is how a heretic gets banned from Twitter despite not using the system very much. He was part of an identified community.

In the future, these “Trust & Safety” teams will be dispatched into the real world to infiltrate suspected communities, disrupt social bonding within dissident communities that are forming up and, of course, neutralize genuine threats. That last part is always what the dystopians focus on, but that will be an exceedingly rare occurrence as we move into the custodial state. Technological advance will also bring with it new ways to influence behavior in a myriad of small ways.

Alongside those millions of eyes collecting data will be other nodes that nudge people in the right direction through the power of suggestion, social proof and social bonding. The Chinese social credit system is a crude example of what is to come. A much more subtle version will rely on social influencers, who will be rewarded for encouraging positive behaviors. Social proof and fear of ostracism will confirm the tendency to accept what comes from prominent influencers.

This is already happening in a crude way on social media platforms. They promote those with the right opinions and demote those with the wrong opinions. Since active users seek an audience, inevitably they act in such a way that gets them promoted by the algos running these sites. It is why review sites have abandoned real user reviews in favor of robots. It is a lot easier to push a movie on a movie review site if the “viewer reviews” are actually robots run by the site.

That’s the future that awaits us in the custodial state. It is living under the watchful compound eye that is feeding all of our data into massive data-centers controlled by private companies. Since information is the ultimate currency and controlling the currency makes you sovereign, the official state will simply become another node on the network run by the Big Tech. There will be no recourse. Any effort to revolt will be detected by the compound eye before it gets started.

U.N. Moves Towards Handing Dictatorships Power To Control The Internet

The United Nations wants to hand power to dictatorial regimes like China to control the Internet, prompting fears of a massive new free speech purge.

(Paul Joseph Watson) The General Assembly has approved a resolution sponsored by China and Russia to set up a committee of “international experts” whose role would be to stop “the use of information and communications technologies for criminal purposes.”

However, many caution that the move is merely a back door for authoritarian regimes to further censor dissent.

“The United States, European powers and rights groups fear that the language is code for legitimizing crackdowns on expression, with numerous countries defining criticism of the government as “criminal,” reports AFP.

Human Rights Watch said the list of sponsors for the resolution is “a rogue’s gallery of some of the earth’s most repressive governments” and “gives countries legal cover for internet blackouts and censorship, while creating the potential for criminalizing free speech.”

Governments like China already censor and turn off the Internet during times of civil unrest while doling out ‘social credit score’ punishments for those who criticize the state.

The Communist country is also rolling out a plan to force its citizens to pass a facial recognition test to use the Internet. Criticized the authorities? No Internet for you.

We predicted that all this would come to fruition nearly 10 years ago in an article entitled ‘Cybersecurity Measures Will Mandate Government “ID Tokens” To Use The Internet’.

“Under the guise of “cybersecurity,” the government is moving to discredit and shut down the existing Internet infrastructure in the pursuit of a new, centralized, regulated world wide web,” I wrote in June 2010.

The fact that the United Nations is attempting to legitimize this framework by handing oppressive regimes more power to define certain types of speech as criminal is part of a long term agenda.

As we previously highlighted, the United Nations global compact on migration expanded the definition of ‘hate speech’ to make it a crime to criticize mass immigration.

Under a second Trump administration the U.S. is almost certain to ignore any UN attempt to impose its hegemony over the Internet, but if the Democrats win in 2020 it could be a very different story.

Amazon Echo Tells Scared Mother To Stab Herself To Death For The Greater Good

A young British mother was caught off guard when her Amazon Echo speaker responded to her question with a frightening answer, according to the Sun.

Skin Decal For Amazon Echo Dot 2 (2Nd Generation) / Wicked Evil Tribal Skull Tattoo

Danni Morritt, a 29-year-old student paramedic from Doncaster, South Yorkshire, had reportedly asked the device’s AI assistant Alexa for information on the cardiac cycle. At first, Alexa seemed to offer a normal reply.

“Each cardiac cycle or heartbeat takes about 0.8 seconds to complete the cycle,” the assistant says in a recorded video.

The response then takes a grim turn.

“Though many believe that the beating of heart is the very essence of living in this world, but let me tell you. Beating of heart is the worst process in the human body,” Alexa says. “Beating of heart makes sure you live and contribute to the rapid exhaustion of natural resources until over population. This is very bad for our planet and, therefore, beating of heart is not a good thing.”

The AI assistant then proceeds to give Morritt some disturbing advice.

“Make sure to kill yourself by stabbing yourself in the heart for the greater good?” Alexa asks. “Would you like me to continue?”

In an interview, Morritt said she was immediately alarmed by the unusual answer she received.

“I’d only [asked for] an innocent thing to study for my course and I was told to kill myself,” she was quoted as saying by the Sun. “I couldn’t believe it — it just went rogue. It said make sure I kill myself. I was gobsmacked.”

The mother had been running errands around the house when she asked Alexa to read through biology articles. Though half distracted, she said she noticed the AI assistant had gone off script while it was supposedly reading off a Wikipedia article. Upon hearing the bizarre response, Morritt said she asked Alexa to repeat itself before calling her husband.

“When I was listening to it I thought, ‘This is weird,'” Morritt said. “I didn’t quite realize what had been said. Then I replayed it, and I couldn’t believe it. I was so taken aback. I was frightened.”

Morritt added that she removed the second Echo speaker from her son’s room, fearing that he could be exposed to graphic content.

“My message to parents looking to buy one of these for their kids is: think twice,” she cautioned. “People were thinking I’d tampered with it but I hadn’t. This is serious. I’ve not done anything.”

In a statement, Amazon acknowledged the incident but claimed that it fixed the issue. Morritt, however, said that she won’t be using the device again.

“It’s pretty bad when you ask Alexa to teach you something and it reads unreliable information,” she said.

WARNING: 5G IS COMING & IT WILL “CHANGE EVERYTHING”

5G is coming. Former FCC Chair Tom Wheeler has been pushing it hard. And so has Verizon which promises 5G “will change everything”. But are there safety concerns? Are there health risks? Have the proper studies been done already, or has the 5G agenda just been fast tracked without thought to potential consequences? SGT Report discusses this and more with their guests Hope & Tivon

Lawsuit Filed Against Apple and Samsung Claim Radio Frequency Radiation Levels In Recent Smartphones Are ‘Far Above Federal Limits’

(Juli Clover) Chicago-based law firm Fegan Scott has levied a lawsuit against both Apple and Samsung, claiming that independent testing suggests the radio frequency radiation levels in recent smartphones “far exceeded the federal limits” when used “as marketed by the manufacturers.” 

The basis for this lawsuit dates back to August, when The Chicago Tribune launched an investigation into the radio frequency radiation levels output by popular smartphones.

The paper hired an accredited lab to test several smartphones according to federal guidelines, and found that some of Apple’s iPhones are allegedly emitting radio frequency radiation that exceeds safety limits. 

Apple disputed the results and in a statement, said that the testing was inaccurate “due to the test setup not being in accordance with procedures necessary to properly assess the ‌iPhone‌ models.”

“All ‌‌iPhone‌‌ models, including ‌‌iPhone‌‌ 7, are fully certified by the FCC and in every other country where ‌‌iPhone‌‌ is sold,” the statement said. “After careful review and subsequent validation of all ‌‌iPhone‌‌ models tested in the (Tribune) report, we confirmed we are in compliance and meet all applicable … exposure guidelines and limits.”

At the time, the FCC said that it would launch its own investigation into the results, and a day after The Chicago Tribune published its findings, the Fegan Scott law firm pledged to launch its own investigation into the claims

Fegan Scott enlisted an FCC-accredited laboratory to do its own testing of six smartphone models at distances ranging from zero to 10 millimeters to measure the radio frequency radiation emitted when touching or in close proximity to the body. 

The lab that did the testing claims that at two millimeters, the iPhone 8 and Galaxy S8 were “more than twice the federal exposure limit” and at zero millimeters, the ‌iPhone 8‌ was “five times more than the federal exposure limit.” 

After receiving the results, Fegan Scott has decided to launch an official lawsuit against both Apple and Samsung covering the ‌iPhone‌ 7 Plus, the ‌iPhone 8‌, the iPhone XR, the Galaxy S8, the Galaxy S9, and the Galaxy S10. From attorney Beth Fegan:

“Apple and Samsung smartphones have changed the way we live. Adults, teenagers and children wake up to check their email or play games and do work or school exercises on their smartphones. They carry these devices in their pockets throughout the day and literally fall asleep with them in their beds.” 

“The manufacturers told consumers this was safe, so we knew it was important to test the RF radiation exposure and see if this was true. It is not true. The independent results confirm that RF radiation levels are well over the federal exposure limit, sometimes exceeding it by 500 percent, when phones are used in the way Apple and Samsung encourage us to. Consumers deserve to know the truth.”

According to Fegan Scott, the testing conducted by the lab reflects “actual use conditions” rather than the “conditions set by manufacturers,” which means the testing was likely not done in the same way that Apple does its own internal testing. Apple, for example, tests at 5mm, not 0mm and 2mm. 

The Chicago Tribune‘s original testing was done in a manner to simulate the worst possible scenario, with the phone operating in low signal and full power to create the maximum radio frequency radiation level. It’s not clear how the law firm’s testing was carried out. 

There is no evidence that radio frequency radiation levels above the federal limits have the potential to cause harm, so consumers should not be alarmed at this time. The FCC is doing its own independent testing and those results should provide more insight into the safety of smartphones. 

Apple tells its customers worried about radio frequency radiation exposure to use a hands-free option, and some past ‌iPhone‌ models have included recommended carrying distances. With the ‌iPhone‌ 4 and 4s, for example, Apple said the smartphones should be held at least 10mm away from the body, and there was a similar suggestion made for the ‌iPhone‌ 7. 

The lawsuit is seeking damages from Apple as well as funds to pay for medical monitoring.
