You may have been duplicated: The U.S. Military has funded a world simulation system.
What exactly would it take to get the US public spurred into action? Per Heather Wokusch on, yes, Thom Hartmann's show (he's so good, he's triple-post worthy):
Sentient World Simulation (SWS) may have an answer. It's a computer-based project designed to "generate alternative futures" and no surprise, the US Defense Department is actively involved.Once again, my patented, award-winning HartmannQuickNotes:
They want to match one person on earth to one cyber person in the project, as well as group to group and institution to institution. Then they can see how each responds to events such as natural disasters or political upheavals.
Example: They go to say, Portland, Oregon and built a data base dossier on everyone who lives there, including what they do for a living, if they're married or not, a psychological profile, information about their credit cards, medical histories, etc. They then create a simulated world on a computer, using all the information from these same people, so that each cyber person becomes one of the real people that they've profiled. Then they use these duplicates to try out various things, using all the info.
So, all day these people are running around Portland, doing what they do, and this cyber city is running simultaneously. They could try dropping a bomb, or setting off a dirty bomb, or blowing up a building, or a taking a building hostage, or some other terrorist attack...or putting up surveillance cameras. Then they see how people will react.
The technology has already been used for marketing in the corporate world. And now there's this.
There is one organization that has achieved this parallel universe, and that is--fanfare-- the U.S. Army.
They can test the draft. They can test pretty much anything. Why? Because if you know how people react, you can figure out how to get them to do what you want them to do. PSYOPs. You can anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners.
But nobody's talking about it. Yes, the Department of Defense and the Department of Homeland Security are all over this, and the U.S. military has funded it to the tune of millions of dollars. If they were testing the effects of Psychological Operations on Portland or anywhere else, it would be illegal, but we'd never know about it.
Have a nice day!
