"With the rise of the industrial revolution and the incalculability of the job, at least four kinds on unemployment became chronic phenomena in all nations addicted to the machine." - Stuart Chase, 1931

"The larger concern is that technological "nature" will shift the baseline of what people perceive as the full human experience of nature, and that it will contribute to what we call environmental generational amnesia."- Jolina Ruckert




"We live in a reality of old and new that doesn't conform to cliches. The important idea is that we must rethink what we mean and understand by the term 'technology'. When we imagine technology we typically focus on innovation - the new. We typically think of one-way, progressive time lines, dates of 'invention' and 'first use'.

Hence if you go to certain countries in the so-called undeveloped world and ask them if they have any technology they will ruefully answer 'no'. By which they mean they haven't invented anything important lately.

I would maintain that's a very odd definition of technology because it's neither a definition that looks at what matters, technologically, nor does it focus on historically significant inventions.

In the 1940s everyone was excited about supersonic flight and atomic power, and in today's history books we continue to think of that era being dominated by those technologies. It wasn't. Those history books are derived largely from propaganda about technology. One might more correctly think of the 1940s as a time of tanks, airplanes, cars, coal, wheat and pig farming.

We inhabit a reality where what I call 'the futurism of the past' falsely conditions our conception of the past. At the moment our understanding of technology is driven by an obsession with glamorous innovation which systematically narrows our vision and obliterates any comprehensive account of technology's past.

This tendency is exacerbated by narratives which repeat themselves over time, irrespective of what actually happened in history. So we have the steamship, the railway, the airplane, the radio, global trade, the internet and the "coalition of the willing" all portrayed as breaking down barriers between nations.

The end result?

We are blinded by cliches when we turn our mind to technology.

There is a consensus in commerce that certain areas of technology are sexiest and should be concentrated on. In fact, we should invent wherever and whenever we can. We should, for example, apply ourselves to inventing new modes of public transport, we should invent new methods of cutting metal, we should invent new techniques of extruding plastic.

If we stop thinking about technology, as we have conventionally conceived it, and think instead about 'things', we might better grasp the complexities involved. We might even decommission the word 'technology' which has an inbuilt futurist spin."

- David Edgerton, historian of technology



"The consumer driven economy of America is based on a constellation of concepts about ourselves, reality, growth, wealth, and the world we live in. These conceptions deny the relevance of a spiritual way to do business activities. Nature is primarily to be used for human benefit, and anything that cannot be counted or measured in monetary terms has limited or marginal "utility."

The Earth is valued for its resources, which are assumed to be infinite and inexhaustible. Even if not, we have faith that human ingenuity will find suitable substitutes for any shortages, and technological "fixes" for serious degradation of our natural environment.

The consumer driven economy presumes that nations and corporations must grow in order to "progress," and assumes that the "rational economic person" will strive to amass as much material wealth and experience as much pleasure as possible. These false beliefs encourage overconsumption as a way of life, for they posit a world of boundless freedom without natural limits or moral restraints on human action. Electing freedom to disobey the Law of God, mankind exits the Garden of Eden and enters a world where nature is to be conquered rather than accepted or embraced.

The roots of our alienation from nature are deep. The illusions created by the corporate dream merchants have become the new religion. In feeding the dreams and desires of material salvation here and now, corporations have deliberately created "the consumer," an ideal marketing target who rejects tradition, focuses on immediate gratification, and is steeped in desire for all things new.

When environmentalists claim that we need to reduce consumption, business and the consumer both recoil. The consumer is so well-conditioned to satisfying needs through things that any suggestion to cut back is met with "intense anxiety, depression, rage, and even panic.

The average American is exposed to hundreds of advertisements each day, and the process begins at an early age. Even if the specific product is not remembered, the overall message is: there is a product to meet your every need, if only you will buy it. In our irrational addiction to more and more, we practice a kind of collective blindness. Many of us pay frequent lip-service to the "free market." We do our best to disregard some of its most fundamental precepts, a disregard that has serious environmental consequences." - Donald O. Mayer

September 11, 2001 Cell phone calls from airliners at altitudes of more than a few thousand feet, specifically calls lasting more than a few seconds, are literally impossible above 7,000 feet.

It is reported that airline passengers at altitudes above 25,000 feet were in contact through cell phones with the ground after they were hijacked which is literally impossible.

2004 Qualcomm announced a successful demonstration of a fundamentally new kind of cell phone technology, involving a "picocell," that would allow airline passengers "to place and receive calls as if they were on the ground."

2008The technology "to place and receive calls as if you were on the ground" first became available on commercial airline flights in March.


software



1973 William A. Hamilton founds a non-profit organization called the Institute for Law and Social Research to develop case management software for law enforcement office automation.

Funded by grants and contracts from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), the Institute developed a program it called "PROMIS", an acronym for Prosecutors' Management Information System, for use in law enforcement record keeping and case-monitoring activities.

The PROMIS software was originally written in COBOL for use on mainframe computers. A later version was developed to run on 16 bit mini-computers such as the DEC PDP-11. The primary users of this early version of the software were the United States Attorneys Office of the District of Columbia, and state and local law enforcement. Both the mainframe and 16 bit mini-computer versions of PROMIS were developed under LEAA contracts, and in later litigation, both Inslaw and DOJ eventually agreed that the early version of Promis was in the public domain, meaning that neither the Institute nor its successor had exclusive rights to it.

1979 DOJ contractes with the Institute for Law and Social Research to do a pilot project that installes versions of PROMIS in four US Attorneys offices.

1980 Congress votes to abolish the LEAA. Hamilton decides to continue operating as a for-profit corporation and market the software to current and new users.

1981 Hamilton established the for-profit Inslaw, transferring the Institute's assets over to the new corporation. The real power of PROMIS, according to Hamilton, is that with a staggering 570,000 lines of computer code, PROMIS can integrate innumerable databases without requiring any reprogramming. In essence, PROMIS can turn blind data into information.

Lawrence McWhorter, director of the Executive Office for US Attorneys, "We're out to get Inslaw."

C. Madison "Brick" Brewer at one time worked for Inslaw, but was allowed to resign when Hamilton found his performance inadequate, according to court documents. Brewer was then hired into the DOJ specifically to oversee the contract of his former employer.

Brewer is aided in his new DOJ job by Peter Videnieks. Videnieks was fresh from the Customs Service, where he oversaw contracts between that agency and Hadron, Inc., a company controlled by Ed Meese and Earl Brian.

A contract dispute evolves over the next few years over ownership of the code.

Later Judge Bason finds the DOJ, "unlawfully, intentionally and willfully" tried to convert the INSLAW Chapter 11 reorganization case to a Chapter 7 liquidation "without justification and by improper means." The DOJ "took, converted, stole, INSLAW enhanced PROMIS by trickery, fraud, and deceit."

March 1982 Inslaw enters into a $9.6 million contract with the Justice Department to install the public domain version of PROMIS in 20 US Attorney's offices as a pilot program.

August 11, 1982 DOJ lawyer reply for clarification: "To the extent that any other enhancements (beyond the public domain PROMIS) were privately funded by Inslaw and not specified to be delivered to the Department of Justice under any contract or other agreement, Inslaw may assert whatever proprietary rights it may have."

Inslaw converted the 16-bit version of PROMIS to a 32-bit architecture running on a DEC VAX minicomputer.

May 6, 1983 Dr. Ben Orr leaves the DOJ with a computer tape containing PROMIS tucked under his arm. PROMIS was then given or sold at a profit to Israel and as many as 80 other countries by Dr. Earl W. Brian, a man with close personal and business ties to then-President Ronald Reagan and then-Presidential counsel Edwin Meese.

"The importance of PROMIS is that it is not only capable of interfacing with a wide variety of data bases in different computer languages and then integrating the data, but it has also been modified for intelligence purposes. It has then been sold throughout the world by spy agencies through third parties to clients such as banks and investment houses envious of its unique capabilities. One key modification by agencies such as the CIA and Mossad not disclosed to most users - is a secret "back door" that permits those with the right codes to enter databases undetected, retrieve and/or alter information, and leave without a trace. PROMIS has been extensively reported as being used throughout the world's financial markets because of its versatility in facilitating international transactions." - Tom Flocco

February 18, 2001 Robert Philip Hanssen, active in Opus Dei, has been tasked with helping allies with the installation and use of their versions of the PROMIS software.

It is alleged that Robert Philip Hanssen sold high-tech PROMIS software to the Russian KGB for $1.4 million in cash and diamonds which was then sold it to Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden.

Robert Philip Hanssen negotiated a plea bargain that enabled him to escape the death penalty, was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and was required to submit to a gag order with respect to public comments.

It is claimed Robert Philip Hanssen gave his handlers a technical manual on the US intelligence community's secure network for online access to intelligence databases, Field Office Information Management Systems (FOIMS) and Community On-Line Intelligence Systems (COINS) as part of his activities. Law enforcement authorities said FOIMS and COINS are upgraded versions of the PROMIS software.

Spy's Wife Speaks, After Taking a Lie Test

October 16, 2001 Mr. Hamilton claims the FBI confirmed that the government had used PROMIS to track classified information in federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

September 11, 2001 Command and control computer systems at the Federal Aviation Administration and Northeast Air Defense Sector fail.

As we can see from the above scenario the official version of the failure of the command and control computer systems at the Federal Aviation Administration and Northeast Air Defense Sector was due to the fact that Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden had PROMIS software and took the computers offline.

"The terrorists who committed 911 through their "super-user" access to the most critical computer networks of the US government still have that access. " - Christopher Bollyn

Indira Singh worked for JP Morgan in a field called Risk Management, involving computer systems and programs designed to keep the entire information and financial structure of JP Morgan safe. The new system would detect money laundering and other crimes in real time and then do something about it; perhaps alert an "intelligent" software agent or a person, or shutdown the transaction immediately. Indira Singh had also worked with a Defense Advanced Research Project - DARPA-funded technology group, with close ties to the CIA.

"People will find the trail to P-Tech, and it won’t be hidden or buried, I’ve kept it alive, whether they’ve renamed their company and moved on I wanna keep the names, the details, everything alive, no matter what I have to do, so that, should there come a time for justice and accounting for 9/11. ... the software that’s in P-Tech is very much like PROMIS."

The Story of Indira Singh


MITRE and Ptech

"The aviation agency is installing a computer system that controllers can use to determine whether airplanes can depart from established traffic lanes and fly long distances, and whether they will conflict with other airplanes by doing so." - New York Times of June 7, 2001

Monte R. Belger*, Acting Deputy of the FAA from 1997-2002, was the key decision maker responsible for upgrading the FAA computerized air traffic control system with MITRE and Ptech.

Documents and reports from the MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in McLean, Virginia, show that Ptech was working with MITRE on FAA computer systems. After he left the FAA, Monte R. Belger became the "Vice President, Government Connection" of a small Israeli-run company based in the Fort Lauderdale area called US Aviation Technology.
US Aviation Technology was founded by Ehud "Udi" Mendelson*, who described himself as "a captain in the prestigious Army Intelligence Unit of the Israel Defense Force."

The Israel Venture Capital Research Center website specifically name Monte Belger of Centreville, Virginia, as a Vice President and Government Connection of US Aviation Technology LLC. Ehud Mendelson, Chief Technology Officer of US Aviation Technology, promoted a remote-control system that allows a "ground pilot" to monitor and adjust the computer flight systems on aircraft giving the ground pilot all of the data and the visuals that the pilot in the aircraft has.

"We put the ground 'pilot' in the cockpit." - Ehud Mendelson

"Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 911. Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force in the case of an emergency. If anyone was in a position to know that the FAA - that there was a window of opportunity or to insert software or to change anything - it would have been Ptech along with MITRE. Ptech software is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this country including the Secret Service, the FBI, the Department of Defense, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department, the IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not least, the Federal Aviation Administration." - Indira Singh

James Rodney Schlesinger was United States Secretary of Defense from 1973 to 1975 under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. He became America's first Secretary of Energy under Jimmy Carter. James Rodney Schlesinger* was Chairman of Board of directors of MITRE. The MITRE Corporation manages Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) supporting the Department of Defense, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs. On March 5, 2009, MITRE was awarded one of two FFRDCs supporting the Department of Homeland Security as the operator of the Systems Engineering and Development Institute (SEDI).

Ptech's roster of clients included several governmental agencies, including the United States Armed Forces, NATO, Congress, the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Customs, the FAA, the IRS, the Secret Service, and the White House.

"I found it hard to believe that the most sensitive government and military computers would run enterprise software from a Lebanese-owned start-up company called Ptech from Quincy, Mass. I soon discovered that the real key person involved in the development of the company was a Zionist Jewish lawyer named Michael Goff from Worcester, Mass. Michael Goff also worked for an Israeli-run computer security company called Guardium." - Christopher Bollyn

Ptech had a security clearance to work on sensitive military projects dating to 1997. On December 5, 2002 a raid by federal authorities under the auspices of Operation Green Quest was conducted at Ptech headquarters. The purpose of the raid was to stop funding of terrorist organizations.

July 15, 2009 FBI unsealed indictments against former PTech CEO Oussama Ziade and former PTech CFO Buford George Peterson. Peterson was arrested at JFK Airport as he returned to the US. Ziade remains at large overseas. The indictments charge Ziade and Peterson with concealing PTech's relationship with and dealing in the assets of the Specially Designated Global Terrorist, Yasin al-Qadi. Yasin al-Qadi's wife is part of the Jamjoom family, and her father, Qadi's father-in-law, is a former high-ranking Saudi finance minister.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
