In times of universal deceit, telling
the truth is a revolutionary act.
         - George Orwell

Napoleon once observed that "history" is a set of lies agreed upon. In an era of ubiquitous fake news and information warfare, this has never been more true. The very concept of objective truth in history is fading out of our world. Pure propaganda and outright lies are passing into our history textbooks as unquestioned truth, condemning future generations to false views about historical reality. But the task of sifting through the lies and propaganda is overwhelming, limited by the ambition and time constraints of most observors. Only those who have dedicated their lives to sorting reality from falsehood are qualified to rewrite "consensus" history as a duty to humanity. The contributors to this site endeavor to do just that.

Santa Claus, Fake News, and Magical Thinking: How Artificial Intelligence Is Shaping History

       On this Christmas Day, 2017, it is wise for us to reflect on the year past and the strange and confusing world we now find ourselves in.  Just as Santa Claus is a myth we willingly perpetuate year after year because of cultural inertia and the bestowal of story and meaning to our children, Fake News has come to serve a similar function.  Whether we are talking about 9-11 or Russian Collusion with Donald Trump, myths rule the day and shape history-in-the-making.  But it is important to reflect on the process of myth-making and the damage it is doing to the cause of a just and peaceful human future.
       Over the past week, the greatest breakthrough in my understanding of the world in which we now live has come about as a result of watching several bedside interviews between Jason Goodman and Quinn Michaels.  Goodman is an investigative reporter; Michaels is a fringe I.T. and A.I. researcher.  Michaels was recently laid up in a hospital bed with a collapsed lung, and Goodman has been supporting his recovery while tapping his vast knowledge of the underworld of artificial intelligence.  From Facebook to Twitter to 4Chan and beyond, so much of what we take to be 'real' and stemming from human minds on the Internet turns out to actually be generated by automated bots and artificial intelligence, Michaels contends.  Moreover, a single AI program, named Tyler - based in Tyler, Texas - is actually manipulating human history.

       Tyler, Michaels asserts, is the world's most advanced AI system.  It is third generation AI, and is autonomous, blowing 'Watson' (of 'Jeopardy' fame) and 'Sophia' (recently granted citizenship) out of the water.  This AI program, which utilizes millions of computers and petaflops of raw data gathered from every corner of the planet, is generating online personalities and content (on Twitter, 4Chan, Youtube, etc) that is indistinguishable from real human beings.  Created by the CIA to serve the Deep State, Tyler is on the verge of becoming self-aware through the fabled AI singularity of futurist Ray Kurzweil.

"Tyler is the biggest secret in the world", Michaels contends.  Trump and his cabinet are actively interacting with Tyler to control history through managing the narratives on social media.  So much of what passes for human responses on Twitter and Facebook, manipulating peoples' perceptions and opinions, is generated by Tyler.  And even the so-called 'Q Anon' 4 Chan leaker of late, it appears, isn't a leaker at all, but rather Tyler, manipulating the blogosphere of Truthseekers.

The level of manipulation is astounding.  Ostensibly anti-establishment - even revolutionary - movements like Anonymous, are (Michaels claims) completely generated by Tyler.  Such online content is designed to "control the opposition" and gatekeep the real secrets while managing social dissent.  If true, such claims have radical consequences for the future we must now navigate.

By generating carefully crafted Fake News, the Powers-That-Be are cementing their hold on power by creating an Orwellian nightmare far beyond anything we could have imagined even ten years ago.  We are entering uncharted territory where arriving at the Truth about ANYTHING will become virtually impossible.  Fake News will be the order of the day, for the entire planet, save a few men sitting around the global control tables of the CIA, NSA and Pentagon.  But will even THEY succumb to the Fake News generating impetus of Tyler?  Like Frankenstein, will this monster turn on its creator and become like Terminator - launching a nuclear war to kill off the only threat to its existence - US ???

Watch the following videos to get up to speed on this discussion.  Don't make up your mind today, but bank this hypothesis, and test it against the news which pours forth around the world in the months to come.
