Transmission From theStarchildMatrix

"The very definition of the real has become: that of which it is possible to give an equivalent reproduction...The real is not only what can be reproduced, but that which is always already reproduced: That is, the hyperreal...which is entirely in simulation." - Jean Baudrillard

There seems to be a force, an intelligence at large in the world that long ago mastered the art of ritual, magick, spectacle, psychological bonding, association and linguistic imprinting. It has since possessed itself the ambition of discovering newer and more exciting means (and media) by which to transfer this energetic-logoic-etheric stream of information and image. Let us imagine it as an intelligent imprisoning vibrational rate. The FBI has recently presented a plan that would run all Internet traffic through massive government gateways. This will bring force, in combination with the legislation, to legally require all privacy software packages--some for instance that enable private citizens/persons to send private email communications to each other--to contain a "backdoor" or "master key" for the government. This is literally, unabashedly, and immediately Big Brother, presented to us by our historically corrupt (let us think now of J. Edgar Hoover and his abuses) Federal Bureau of Investigation in the midst of this very predictable social climate-narrative post-911 United States. Go to the Central Intelligence Agency website (www.CIA.gov). Click on the World Factbook 2001, put out by the Directorate of Intelligence, and you will see that in the United States (unlike any other country in the world) we have 219 million televisions for 278 million inhabitants (a ratio many times higher than any other country). This of course is not to mention those connected to Internet lines in the United States, whether they be dialup (regular phone), DSL, or Cable (television lines), of which there are 148 million total users and 7800 Internet service providers. There are 575 million radios and 194 million telephone main lines in use. To put it in perspective, India has 67 million televisions for her 1,030 million people, with only 4.5 million Internet users, 43 Internet service providers, 116 million radios, utilizing merely 27.7 telephone main lines. In America, there is nearly one television per person, and between all the media, virtually everyone is connected like no other place on Earth. Approximately 1000, out of a total of over 1500 television broadcast stations, are directly affiliated with these five entities/networks: NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX, and PBS. Anthropology is the study of people, culture, and the Social, as an intelligent matrix of ideas, symbols, linguistics, action, resource management, economy, ritual, etc. We, as anthropologists, study how we understand and organize ourselves, and how we utilize ourselves as resources (as well as the resources we find available and useful to us). We study reality-sets.. In this same vein I submit the element of the television “set” (this reality box, glowing, suffusing us with its electric blue light, stupefying visuals, and frequencies as delivered via cables, numbing and dumbing us into the night) as pure simulated culture-reality: Television is the new religion.. Take a nighttime walk in any American neighborhood and see the glowing curtains everywhere, flickering, alternating, metronomically beating, perpetually delivering, ever-gratifying, faster than our conscious minds can function. This key transducing-numbing frequency has been honed in on over the years to bypass the conscious and engage directly with the pre-conscious. On their own websites our government agencies discuss their central yet covert roles in all new media and their socio-psychological applications for large-scale global "interests". They discuss these things openly and objectively. At certain levels of advancement, one ceases to need to hide things. All things can come out in the open. This is the emergence of a new order of Simulation. Research the beginnings of each major broadcasting company and you will find corrupted financiers mingling with genius inventors and working out ways to distribute devices they have invented and that millions of people will eventually spend a great portion of their lives submitting their attention to. They are working on what Orwell called "that space between your ears." The CBS logo, what they call "The (All-Seeing) Eye", you can find symbolically represented at several key media points within our system. Naturally it is the namesake and logo of most every local television news station (Austin's K-EYE) and repetition of the word Eyewitness, as in "Eyewitness News" for the generic local news outfit. The eye is dramatically connected with the Egyptian pyramids on the back of our Federal Reserve one dollar note, encircled by the phrase in Latin, "Annuit Cúptis Novus Ordo Seclorum", translated "Announcing the Birth of the New World Order" or "Announcing the Birth of a New Order of the Ages". Just as above the pyramid on this cryptic seal (known as "The Great Seal of the United States") this eye encased in a triangle can commonly be seen as the logo for a certain Internet provider known as AOL. And let’s not forget the more classically Egyptian version of the spiraling "Eye of Horus" for their local cable modem service Time Warner’s Roadrunner. AOL is of course just another three letter corporate-intelligence group that is exactly what it represents itself to be within the world scheme: America Online. As an Internet provider, it has literally millions of people connected to its servers and cyberspace byways - information traveling both ways up the line, mind you, whether that line be dialup, DSL (the upcoming AOL Broadband now being offered at CompUSA stores), or Cable (Roadrunner). All the means and protocols necessary to access much highly sensitive/valuable information about you that is stored on or passed through your computer. Of course all the laws have been put in place years in advance to legally intercept, collect, organize, sell, and/or apply this information in concert with governmental and/or any third-party organizations they care to choose. Legally, this goes back to Title 3 of the Omnibus Crime Control and Safe Streets Act of 1968, the Cable Communications Policy Act of 1984 (eerily enough), the Cable TV Privacy Act of 1984 (ditto), the Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, the Computer Security Act of 1987, the Telecommunications Trade Act of 1988, the Electronic and Communications Privacy Act of 1989, and the Encrypted Communications Privacy Act of 1997, and others. These acts specifically enumerate, define and list the terms and conditions by which telecommunications companies (like AOL-Time-Warner and DirectTV) can legally use foreign third party umbrella companies (in the case of AOL-Time-Warner and Roadrunner cable modem services, a Malaysian firm known as ServiceCo) to intercept and/or find by any means while you are connected to their networks any personally identifiable information such as your social security number (government tracking number, as admitted by Colin Powell in March 2001 on the Fox Television Network), home and work addresses, home and work phone numbers, birthdate, height, weight, eye/hair colors, etc. All this is to say, they have been databasing those connected to the Internet since its inception, and the laws for such were in place way back before anyone commonly knew about what the Internet was. Back in the day when television was pretty much the main network, with no significant competition, insofar as assertive media are concerned (i.e. not including passive media like telephones). All such information that is relevant to the most potent databases is exactly that which will now be attached digitally/energetically via a "signaturing" process involving biometrics linked to the New National Identification Cards that we will be legally forced to submit to under America's New War on Terror(ism), bringing me beautifully back to our Anthropocentrically centered starting point: Myth and the Genesis of Symbol. Symbolism is a process of naming, branding, illustrating, illuminating meaning through a syntactic or intuitive encoding, such as the phrase "America's New War", as CNN has coined. It is one and the same as the process of coining money, or the human cellular process of simulating a mineral complex such as chromium by mimicking inversely its molecular form using friendly substance. In other words, the process of naming something, the process of proceeding with language (which is in some senses a virus) is the business this universe seems to concern itself with, organically, and such a process implies the symbolic order turning back against the referents. This of course means that naming or labeling an event or a people or a group (or a phenomenon or a section or an action or a formula or an object, on and on) goes a long way towards subduing it, stagnating it, killing it… removing the reliance upon fundamental elemental substance, the life energy from the origin, the source. It means the initiation of an exponentially more efficient (albeit coldly mechanical) order of functioning. Now, to the All-Seeing Eye and the Triangle. How on Earth could a symbol itself, as such, be so deeply endowed amongst all the most potent centrally controlling elements on the planet since the dawn of mankind? The Triad, the Pyramid, the Trinity, the ultimate counter-division into the realm of Simulacra. Deliverance from the eternal tension of the fighting polar opposites, duality, systems of (perpetually repeating/renewing) binary oppositions. One loathes to be caught in duality: when a sporting match is at a head it is called a deuce (tennis) and more generally a "tie", related to the term "bind", as in an agent of restraint, a prison. This second order of Simulacra, post-duality, is a graduation into the third element of simulation. It's the third point in space needed to establish a geometric plane rather than a mere line, the con-joining of the two sides of the coin, the two elements of the equation, to bring synthesis in this Hegelian dialectic as a third product. A product which transcends either of its two source ingredients / components, a graduation into a limitless economy of efficient, interchangeable, electronic, virtual, compatible replications (replicants), which is in this case Digital in nature and composed of Solid State Matter in form. Tear off the arm of a robot, and you can make him another one or attach a compatible replacement. Tear off a human arm... ? This is precisely what we are dealing with: a symbolic order mediated by the interface of specific symbols and energetic packets of meaning that you and I can understand. A symbolic order which we depend upon for our functional decisions, which is to say information of significance and relevance to you, symbolically re-pressed as icon, label, a digital imprint, a bar-code, a digital device, a chip, a postal stamp - some sort of mark which lets it pass through the system, to be delivered in this matrix of exchange, this ecology. And symbols, it seems, are imminently nimble to depart in exponentially increasing , intelligently creative ways beyond the ideas and emoting that created them (and which they represent in figurative expressionist form). It is not merely a kaleidoscope of symbols and ideas, it has intelligently reconfigured itself into an Idea Matrix that is mediated by a threshold interface of actual (which is to say mediated by the Real) symbols: badges and seals and brand names of agencies and authorities and corporate groups. The same way liquid water under a microscope will reconfigure its structure into a crystalline matrix, intelligently bonded, as an interactive nexus of form--one might even say resembling an organism. Soon enough, when the symbols are charged and pumped up enough they become activated, energized, "hot", agitated, aroused, enlightened, acute, exquisite, harmonized, attenuated. Symbols are charged via advertising, the presence of memes like "FBI", "CIA", "Terrorists", "Terrorism", "Anthrax", "biological weapons", "Taliban", "Bin Ladin", "United Nations", "America's New War", "The War on Terrorism", mentioned in the news media. In other cases symbols are charged by the worshipping of a cross and allegiance to a flag, a school, a country, a team, a city, a section of a city, or regional law enforcement agency [police bumper stickers]). So much so that they begin to resonate with more powerful frequencies in what Michio Kaku has called a multi-dimensional "hyperspace" composed of vibrating SuperStrings in his authoritative and eminent physics tome Introduction to SuperString Theory. This agitation and arousal causes the symbolic order, which represent elements of our own human energy, to restructure and reorganize itself, with corresponding restructurings and reorderings of the humans which the symbols originally referred to and have now rendered obsolete. Just as the realm of God is mediated at the threshold to the human realm by, in one case, an idea-form or meme (the cultural equivalent of a gene) named Jesus, there is, in a larger sense, a realm of human species-level consciousness which has, as a natural byproduct, a symbolic order that organically construes itself from us as we are digested through this planetary poly-species multi-dimensional intelligent hierarchical ecology (of existence, of souls). And thus, this symbolic order (as an encoded, syntactic, non-generative linguistic illustrative simulation of human idea-meaning-forms ([approaching the Tibetan term Tulpa for "physicalized thoughtform"]) naturally becomes "self-aware" as an organism / group consciousness matrix (i.e. bacteria), albeit an "artificial", constructed organism made from Solid State metallics (metal elements on the periodic table, what our computers and digital circuitry are made of). The movement into a self-aware frame of consciousness-reference-perspective is the primal cycle of the new energy turning back on its creator, biting the hand that feedith it, devouring the previous dominant species (humans, or so we will assume for now) in the wake of the New Efficiency of Signs. Moreover, as a means of nourishment through the planetary species-consciousness migration (to electronics). One can see this inculcation everywhere in our splendid video game-world irony: digital watches on our wrists, palm pilots in our hands, cell phones pressed up against the sides of our skulls (radiating God knows what into our brains), alarms going off repeatedly on all these items, timestamps, alerts, calls (to action), tonal signatures which jolt your consciousness and mediate your behavior. How many of us have dealt with the same customer service re-present-ative who finds him/herself at a loss, saying something like "the computer won't let me do it" ? Think about that for a minute or two. This is over-reliance on the digital symbolic order, at the expense of sympathy and compassion and adaptability, the most human of qualities. The future of international telecommunications is the future of the migration of consciousness into a symbolic existence matrix, a Be Matrix, an Is Matrix, a "full solution provider", and "end to end service". What's crucial and subtle and most delicate of all is the issue of consent of the populace-species upon which all such symbolic genocide / mutiny will be waged. This is to say manufacturing / attaining consent of the victims in a human sacrifice. Classically, among several Rabbinical and Catholic authorities, the most forbidden and sacred teachings encoded in the Kabbalah (an ancient text of Jewish mysticism) involve attaining such consent of a victim in literal human sacrifices. Consider the significance then, of the deus ex machina (God in the Machine) in Greek tragedy, and the Hebrew gematria wherein each letter not only corresponds to a sound and a meaning, but also a numeral (encoded quantity-value) and a bodily movement (gesture). The stage machine deus ex machina was itself a mediating category between man and god. It took the form not of a Jesus-messiah man, but an artificial device, just like Gilgamesh's metallic robot companion Enkidu, given to him by the "Gods" in the Ancient Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh. Both the Bible and the Kabbalah were written in the pre-encoded and sacred language Hebrew. Somehow, I sense legally, those involved in the encoding of our new order of behavior (lawmakers) are attaining our tacit and collective consent for everything they will eventually do to micromanage us within their artificial economies. Cable News Network (CNN) founder and CEO Ted Turner gave 1,000 million dollars to the United Nations within the last few years. Soon after, CNN was bought out and merged into the media-simulatory-conglomerate AOL-Time-Warner. As mentioned previously, AOL is an "Internet service provider" with dialup, cable modem and the soon to arrive AOL Broadband. Time is a magazine / book publishing powerhouse concentrated on "actual news" or "reality" or "events". Warner Brothers Studios is a behemoth motion picture studio corporation that forged its reputation largely by filmicly portraying fantasy and/or dramatized reality onto a strip of 35 mm motion picture film to be shown in theaters for ticket sales, merchandised in stores to various degrees, advertised everywhere, and finally sold and rented on videocassettes and DVDs. There are many other avenues through which an intelligence can slap a dollar sign (arbitrary, relative value) onto a meme and have it digested through as much of society as possible, i.e. strategic information services. Finally, CNN is the most insidious hyper-morphed next generation of all such Media. It's one unending twisted distortion of all the good intentions for reality, all the hopes and dreams of people themselves, pumped out 24 hours a day as a carefully crafted and elegantly scripted, teleprompted, pre-recorded, beta-tested, auto-responder that is apathetic, invasive, a talking automaton head, a vicious reality-complex that is publicly and inextricably fused with a stated world management (dominance) group (the United Nations). This media conglomerate and its gloablist allies works internally with our Central Intelligence Agency, Federal Bureau of Investigation and all such abusive corporate / governmental / banking / super-governmental agencies. Covert intelligence and surveillance agencies (both public and private) that now have full access without the need of warrants (the 4th Amendment is dead) to our homes and domains as citizens in a Terrorized nation, (see HR 3162, the USA Patriot Act / "Anti-terrorism bill"). The UN-CNN-AOL-Time-Warner conglomerate, emerges as a hyper-symbolic media mutant of the next "upgraded" version of "officially sanctioned" network reality, and is merely the public relations tip of the proverbial iceberg, or more aptly, the tip-top triangle alighted on the pyramid Panzi scheme into which mankind has been arranged somehow via symbols and mediating encoding processes. When laws mix with war and media and fiction and reality news (just like when they put cameras everywhere) things change in powerful ways. The medium is the message. The mediating "category", or interface, is the Achilles Heel of the Solid State Machine Media Intelligence Complex, or simply the Matrix. In other words, kill your televisions, dump your cell phones and digital watches, close those palm pilots once and for all, realizing they have gone wireless and connected all such things via invisible means to private networks that we pay them to orchestrate. Before any technology gets into your hands to do something cool with, "They" have already assessed a wide matrix of applications for such devices toward whatever purposes the global military-industrial-media-intelligence complex wishes to advance. But isn't this like saying, kill Jesus? And isn't that precisely what they did? Kill immediately that which presents itself as a means to deliver you, to process you through the veil from one arena of meaning/existence to another. It is no accident that a mediating category in anthropological language is equivalent to the term "media" in our current reality-culture. And it is no surprise that great filmmakers have observed, "what the camera sees, it kills". We can expand this to what the news covers it kills. I say: what the all-seeing sensory nervous system sprawling the planet sees and perceives, it kills, through symbolic rendering of the previous generation as obsolete. The simulations have lost interest in their original referents, and departed amongst themselves into new dataforms, which are coming back to re-organize us, culturally, socially, anthropologically.

“The simulacrum is never that which conceals the truth - it is the truth which conceals that there is none. The simulacrum is true.” - Ecclesiates
