The Game Was Rigged From The Start
Part One Of a Series
The progenitors of the Internet knew about network assisted “spooky action at a distance”, or parapsychological effects related to networking human minds, from the very beginning. Jacques Vallée has stated such:
”there were many people researching interface between consciousness and computers for example with DARPA funding”
”we began to observe something very interesting… these people were very frustrated because they wanted to communicate with lots of people very quickly but they only had a keyboard, so they had essentially there was a psychic component on top that we could observe on top of the typed communication”
While at the Institute for the Future, he directly succeeded Paul Baran, the Grandfather of the Internet, as principal investigator on the National Science Foundation project for computer networking, which developed the ARPANET conferencing systems, Planning Network (PLANET). This was the first network conferencing system— and it was being used for psychic research, or “weird entanglement” as some describe it.
The entire time Vallée was at NIF, he was also working closely with the Stanford Research Institute, the DIA and the CIA on various endeavors, including the infamous remote viewing unit, Stargate Project.
Many of the projects that SRI dealt with involved “electronic perturbation”, the ability “to interact, by mental means alone, with sensitive electronic equipment, and to ascertain how this phenomenon might be utilized for Army-designated applications.”
These projects were not unsuccessful.
Interfacing with a virtual environment, with the screen, is by itself an altered state of consciousness. Projecting your mind into the semiotic space inside is a form of sensory deprivation. You are reduced to the material and deprived of the animal simultaneously. Psuedo-initiated into the brute-forced mystery of hyperreality. The strange light hypnotizes, the sigils and images are filled with the vital florescence, the attention and intention, of millions.
Simulacrum made in secret, and curiously wrought in the realms of air, feeding on the flesh of the Real.
How are you feeling? Are you enjoying your “altered state of communication”? Your organic senses deprived, your mind outreaches, entangled in a network of bodies within virtual cosmos— comingling with those bodies as forms of artificial life that are profilic, algorithmic, and coded. Artificial life is protocol in the sociopolitical theater, a protocol distributed throughout the brains and bodies of the actors. The atmosphere has a mineral tinge, the audience has metamorphosed into graphene antennae. This is the price of admission.
”The data of psychic research suggest that reality includes paraphysical effects, that nonmaterial mental states exist and transact with physical systems, and that humanity has a mental or consciousness aspect which transcends its physical nature.”
