In this edition of Symbolic Pics of the Month: Police state fashion, pop stars with weird t-shirts and ads that make you go hmmm…(what you know about this C + C Music Factory reference??).
This photoshoot “named State of Emergency” by photographer Steven Meisel came out in 2006 (a few years before the creation of this site). It is featured here because it eerily foreshadowed police state tactics that appeared in the following years. And it makes it sexy. This pic apparently predicted the the sexually demeaning TSA searches and pat-downs that were instated around 2010.
Another airport scene showing a mode forcibly undressed and searched at an airport check up. Again, many cases of TSA agents requesting people to undress and get patted down have appeared 3-4 years following this photoshoot.
Allusions to police brutality at an airport, complete with batons and aggressive K9 unit…and look at that dress!
Agents with TSA badges violently apprehending a model. Is it foreshadowing the next step of “airport security”?
Other pics in the shoot take place in the streets, where fashion models are brutalized by police in riot gear. Its all about making police state sexy.
Model laying on the ground with police foot on her throat…Police brutality is not glamorous.
I know I ask this often but…Is this fashion? Really?
As usual, a lot of one-eye signs popped out in mass media in August. Here’s Katy Perry with a mask hiding one eye.
Han Hyo Joo in September’s edition of Vogue Korea
On this single cover, Ayah Marar is hiding one eye and the name of the song is “Mind Controller”…Can’t really add more to that.
A gigantic hat hides one of Gwen Stefani’s eyes on the cover of Bazaar magazine.
This ad for Lady Gaga’s Little Monster mobile app reminds us that Gaga still is an Illuminati puppet.
Model Coco Rocha doing the trifecta of Illuminati signs in the NY Times: Self-mutilation, devil horns and one eye. Name of the article? “Expanding Her Efforts to Be a Role Model”
Kreyshawn’s album cover features a bunch of eyeballs and one-eyed creatures observing her. A giant one-eyed thing is wrapped around her…is she under its control? Also, there are pyramids in the background, making this thing a big Illuminati tribute.
An interesting way of portraying Mitt Romney…
Ashley Benson is known for being an actress and for wearing shirts with inverted crosses on them.
In last month’s Symbolic Pics, we saw Rihanna wearing a shirt saying “Control Minds” in the shape of an inverted cross. This month, we have Rihanna walking around with a shirt saying “Sex Kittens” – which is, as we know, a type of Monarch programming. The shackled figures convey the concept of mind control.
Illuminate your cigarette with this Illuminati lighter.
This ad for OPI nail lacquer “celebrates the incredible life & legacy of Whitney Houston”. If that’s the case, why does this thing appear to be splashing blood everywhere? Is it subtly celebrating Houston’s sacrifice? Let’s look at other ads by this same makeup company.
I guess we know who they’re rolling with…
This graph made by MTV shows the world’s richest rock stars. Notice how a bolt of lightning emerges from pyramid of artists to another pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the bottom. Is the image hinting at who or what made these artists as rich as they are?
In this edition of the Symbolic Pics of the Month: The Olympics, Azelia Banks, Selena Gomez, Beyonce and the fashion world gone Illuminati.
The Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics basically took place in a gigantic eye. The culmination of the ceremony was the lightening of the Olympic cauldron which was, incidentally, the pupil of the eye. Expect a full analysis of the ceremonies once the Games are over.
Speaking of one gigantic eye, here’s one of the mascots of the Olympics. Hundreds of them are scattered around London.
Speaking of eye, Rita Ora (who was featured in last month’s Pics of the Month) unveiled her new album cover. Yes, it is all about one eye symbolism, like countless other industry puppet’s album covers. Original, brilliant, profound, revolutionary – those are all words that we cannot apply to this album cover.
Dior’s new ad campaign features not-so-subtle one-eye action.
Another brand, same sign.
Fashion magazine, same sign.
Here’s Beyonce flashing the Roc aka “eye-inside pyramid” sign for her fans on Tumblr.
The handsign made by Beyonce is featured on this t-shirt made by yet another brand using a lot of Illuminati symbolism, WAXDfashion
More symbolism from same brand.
Yup, they really want kids walking around with these symbols.
Fashion brand Iron Fist wants you to party with them…while they’re flipping you off and flashing a single eye inside an inverted pentagram.
Azealia Banks is becoming one of these artists that is forcibly pushed down our collective throats. She hasn’t accomplished much but she is already clear on who’s controlling her.
She’s constantly sporting Mickey Mouse-related stuff – a mind control symbol that is often slapped onto industry pawns. But maybe this shirt is just a coincidence…no pattern there…
Still can be a coincidence.
A big-ass Mickey Mouse head right between her legs on cover of Paper magazine.
MK symbolism right on her head. No coincidence.
Azealia seems to enjoy her Baphomet horns in the video Liquorice.
Her album cover pretty much sums it up: A beautiful siren under the control of the all-seeing eye.
Robert Downey Jr. giving the “one-eyed salute” in many different ways.
Keith Urban combines one-eye with the “hidden hand”, a Masonic symbol (see the article entitled The Hidden Hand that Shaped History).
The “original” Sugababes are back together as “Mutya Keisha Siobhan”. To celebrate their comeback, they released these pics announcing that they’re still pawns.
Selena Gomez thought it was a good idea to sport a shirt bearing 666 while visiting a children’s hospital.
Speaking of the number of the beast, a new TV series entitled 666 Park Avenue will soon be featured on ABC. According to the network, the series “follows a couple who learns that the Manhattan building complex that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants, might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force”. This story is very similar to Rosemary’s Baby, a movie that was analyzed on this site, where rich elitists living in NYC dabble with the occult forces and the Devil himself. This promotional pic clearly features a Masonic checkerboard pattern.
This image is heavily circulating around social networks. What’s your take on it?
When terrible events like the now infamous “Batman Shooting” occurs, I tend to not have a knee-jerk reaction of yelling “It’s a conspiracy” because, obviously, sometimes it is not. But in some cases, like this one, tidbits of information begin leaking out, weird synchronicities surface and, at a certain point, one can’t help but think “hmm”, “huh?” and “what?”. Pieces of the puzzle start coming together and, when one is aware of the symbolism and workings of the occult elite, the whole thing starts to look like a big, dark, disturbing ritual that was carried out by pre-programmed patsy. No, I won’t say that I cracked the case, but here are some facts that simply cannot be overlooked.
A Mind-Controlled Pasty?
As new information surfaces regarding James Holmes (who dubbed himself “The Joker”), many facts point toward a man who is prone to having alter-personas, delving into “inner-worlds” and generally exhibiting the behavior of either a schizophrenic or a programmed drone. Obviously in an altered state of mind and most probably embodying a completely different alter-persona, Holmes told police at the time of his arrest that he was “The Joker”. In this article that appeared in the Telegraph, Holmes was reportedly fixated on the concept of altered states of mind.
“After the massacre Holmes calmly told detectives he had taken 100mg of the prescription painkiller Vicodin, and identified himself as “The Joker”. The same drug was found in the system of actor Heath Ledger when he died of an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in 2008. Ledger played The Joker in the previous Batman film The Dark Knight. Vicodin side-effects can include euphoria, paranoia and, in rare cases, hallucinations.
The video footage of Holmes was taken at Miramar College in San Diego and showed him explaining that “temporal illusions” are “an illusion that allows you to change the past”. Holmes said he had been working on “subjective experience, which is what takes place inside the mind as oppose to the external world”. - Source: The Telegraph
According to news sources, Holmes was pursuing a neuroscience doctoral program at the University of Colorado’s Anschutz Medical Campus. Could this prestigious academic location dedicated the study of human brain functioning and behavior also be Holmes’ mind-control programming site? The concepts stated above of “illusions that allow you to change the past” and “subjective experience” are very reminiscent to the programming of alter-personas in mind control, where illusions are indeed used to create a false pasts in MK alter-personas.
After his arrest, Holmes appeared to be completely dissociated from reality, as if still in character.
“Holmes has yet to show any signs of remorse and his behavior is reported to be erratic and bizarre. Per a released inmate outside the jail, “He was spitting at the door and spitting at the guards. He’s spitting at everything. Dude was acting crazy.” - Source: The Examiner
The Odd Batman Connection
One-Eyed Heath Ledger as The Joker in this movie poster. There’s some Illuminati crap going on here.
As stated above, Holmes dyed his hair orange and claimed he was “The Joker” – as played by Heath Ledger in the previous installment of the Batman series The Dark Knight. We’ve seen in previous articles (notably “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus” and Heath Ledger’s Sacrifice), that there are many odd and ritualistic facts surrounding the death of Heath Ledger after he played the dark and disturbed character of the Joker, a role that apparently took a toll on the actor’s health.
Shooter James Holmes even went as far as to take Vicodin, a drug found in Heath Ledger at the time of his death. Vicodin is a powerful pain-killer with morphine-like effects that is used in mind control to “dull out” victims.
Is there some kind of ritualistic connection between The Dark Knight, the sacrificial death of Heath Ledger and this new installment of a Batman movie that was “launched” with a mass murder? Is there a reason why this mass-murder, which occurred during the midnight screening of a movie called Dark Knight RISING took place in a city called Aurora, the name Roman goddess of dawn (dawn being the time where the sun begins to rise)? Another interesting fact: Aurora is considered to be the mother of the morning star, also know as the Light Bringer, or Lucifer.
Pop Culture Synchronicity
As it is always the case in these mega-rituals, the event appears to have been “foretold” in mass media. Coincidence, premeditation, or synchronicity? Not sure, but here are some strange things that appeared in the mass media before the shooting:
Released only days before the shooting, Lil Wayne’s video “My Homies Still” features him and his boys sitting in a movie theater full of skeletons. Aside from this scarily prophetic scene, the video features many dismembered dummies, a symbol associated with Mind Control.
Shown right before the fatal showing of Dark Knight Rises, this trailer of the movie Gangster Squad ends with a big shooting in a movie theater.
In the trailer, gangsters walk through the movie screen and start shooting at the crowd. Strange that the people at the “Batman shooting” actually saw this right before it then happened to them. Fiction indeed turned into reality.
This page from the 1986 comic “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns” features a crazed man killing three people in a movie theater. In the comic, media then states that the shooting spree was inspired by Batman.
Was the Batman shooting a mega-ritual carried out by the occult elite and its mass media appendage? It is not possible to say for certain, but a lot of the information that is surfacing leads Vigilant observers to realize: “Something’s weird about this”. As it is always the case in these types of events, the “investigation” will most likely begin and end with the proverbial “lone nut”, the single crazy psychopath toward which all fingers will be pointed. Were there people pulling his strings? Maybe, but the media always show the puppets, never the puppet masters.
Some might ask: “Why would ‘they’ even want to carry out these kinds of rituals?” It is indeed quite difficult to compute these events without taking into account “their” mindset, which is all about magick, symbolism, numerology and the power of rituals. Blood sacrifices are the most potent forms of ritual and the more people who witness and emotionally participate in that ritual, the more potency it gains. Right now, the whole world has its eyes turned towards the town of Aurora. And while outraged citizens across America demand a culprit to pay for this horrendous act, the REAL masterminds behind it will just sit back and enjoy the show.
The many articles on this site attempt to prove that the same set of symbols – those of the ruling elite – are being permeated across popular culture. While we often look at outlets intended for teenagers or young adults (such as movies and music videos), children are definitely not exempt of it. A blatant example is Disney’s new show Gravity Falls, a “quirky and endearing” cartoon about 12-year old twins spending summer with their Great Uncle Stan in Gravity Falls, Oregon.
The 40 seconds long intro theme alone is loaded with symbolism. Here it is.
First, Great Uncle Stan wears a fez, which is the hat worn by the Shriners – an appendant body of Freemasonry. As they like to say, all Shriners are Masons, but not Masons are Shriners.
Stan wearing a Fez hat. Also, he is hiding one eye for the heck of it.
An Old School Shriner.
Up until 2010, only 32nd Degree Scottish Rite Masons (the highest degree attainable other than the honorary 33rd) or Knight Templars of the York Rite could join the Shriners. This means that Grunkle Fez is most probably a high level Freemason. Therefore, he knows what’s the deal with all of these symbols. He knows.
The show is full of eyes everywhere. There’s even a jar of eyeballs for sale at Stan’s store.
All-Seeing eye inside of triangle and more here…
This frame flashes for literally a split second at the end of the intro. We can easily recognize the Illuminati pyramid with illuminated capstone and All-Seeing eye, along with other alchemical and magical symbols. Also, there’s the Contra code on NES, which is rather hilarious.
I won’t start analyzing all of the episodes but here are some interesting shots from the first episode of Gravity Falls.
Aside from the eyeballs everywhere, the little humans in a jar are homunculi – a concept that is found in alchemy and occult rites.

“Floating eyeballs, are they watching me?”.
The attic of Great Uncle Stan’s shack has a prominent Masonic stained glass window featuring a symbol that is omnipresent in this cartoon.
Stan appears to have two Owl clocks – the owl is an ancient symbol representing the occult elite (those who work in darkness), the Illuminati and the Bohemian Grove.
Check out the rug on the floor.
The letter “A” of the word “Shack” consists of a compass above and All-Seeing Eye, a combination of symbols of found in Masonic symbolism.

In short, Disney’s new show is centered around a specific set of symbols associated with secret societies and the occult elite, which we call the Illuminati. While some might argue that these signs are inserted to add “mystery” to the show, we must also consider the fact that popular culture in general is being permeated with the exact same set of symbols. This show plays it part by exposing young children to the symbolism, which normalizes it and ultimately accomplishes what the occult elite has been doing for centuries: Hiding in plain sight.
“I, Pet Goat II” is a computer animated video that is loaded with silent messages and esoteric symbolism. While the movie has no dialogue, each symbol tells a piece of a story that covers the fields of history, politics, occult conspiracies and spirituality. We’ll look at the esoteric meaning behind the viral sensation “I, Pet Goat II”.
Produced by the Canadian production crew Heliofant, I, Pet Goat II is a short animated movie that quickly went viral across the internet. Praised for its visual feats and its interesting imagery, the video however left many puzzled about the meaning of its symbolism. Politics, conspiracies and false flag operations are mixed with esoteric spirituality and occult symbolism in one big mesmerizing mind bender. Here’s the video.
After watching the video, many might say something like “What the hell did I just watch?”. The story is somewhat non-linear and there are many cryptic and enigmatic elements in the movie. I won’t claim to fully decode every single symbol-filled frame of the video, but many of the messages are easily understandable due to rather heavy-handed symbolism.
In general, the movie appears to be about the political and social climate of the past decade – complete with puppet Presidents, false flag terror and mind-controlling sorcerers. Then, through the following of a Christ figure, we leave all the sadness behind to enter a new, sunny era. In short, the story is about the triumph of spiritual enlightenment against the forces of darkness. Let’s look at the movie and at some of its many details.
I, Pet Goat II
The opening scene is already replete with symbolism.
The video begins with an interesting scene: A goat inside a box in what appears to be some sort of detention (FEMA) camp. The goat has a bar-code on its head with the numbers 6 6 6 underneath it. If I, Pet Goat is about liberation from the forces of darkness, this first scene seems to depict the exact opposite. Does this goat represent those who have been “boxed in”, bar-coded and brainwashed by the corrupt system? The usage of the pronoun “I” in the title implies that the goat might be, in fact, the viewer himself.
The Puppet Show that is Politics
In the first part of the video, a hidden puppet master controls George “Dubya” Bush inside a classroom. When the planes struck the Word Trade Center in September 2001, Bush was inside a classroom reading the book My Pet Goat to children. The Masonic checkerboard floor of the classroom might signify that this whole charade had a ritualistic component to it.
Bush tap-dances, makes scary faces and says random stuff to keep the masses clueless about the truth.
Above Bush is an interesting graphic depicting the evolution of mankind from fish, to monkey, to man holding a weapon. What is the final stage of evolution? The illuminated man, represented by a sunburst around its head.
Bush wears a dunce cap, this conical hat that was given to “slower” students to humiliate them. When Bush is done making a fool out of himself, he turns into Obama, a charming and distinguished man wearing a graduation cap. He starts off nice and lovable, but he ultimately begins to laugh at the audience. While he appeared to be the perfect response to the idiocy of Bush’s era, the fact remains: He is simply another puppet controlled by the same puppet master.
While most of the audience is totally oblivious to what is happening, one girl is not buying it.
While the masses appear to be deaf, dumb and blind (and restrained by barb wire), this little girl realizes that “this apple is not hers and drops it”. Obama is concerned by the awakening of this girl.
We are then taken to the cold and snowy outside world around the school. On a wall, there’s a graffiti with an important message behind it.
On the school wall is a graffiti saying “Psalm 23″.
The Biblical verse that is referred to by the graffiti appears to foretell the journey viewers are about to embark on.
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
- Psalm 23, NIV
A World in Decay
The outside world is dark, cold and literally in decay. It is sad, corrupt and everything is shaking and crumbling down.
At one point, two towers – reminiscent of the WTC – fall down. We then learn that it was an inside job.
Bin Laden is wearing a CIA badge, hinting to the fact that he was a tool used by the American government to advance its agenda. The moon crescent, a symbol associated with Islam, is reversed, which is may be a way of saying that all this Al-Qaeda stuff is a perversion and an exploitation of Islam.
While oil leaks from everywhere, a six pointed star appears under the Statue of Liberty, renamed by the makers of the movie “Lady of Helotry” (“helotry” means serfdom or slavery).
Is the six-pointed star (also know as the Star of David) appearing under the Lady of Helotry a way of saying that the US is highly influenced by Israel?
While the world is crumbling down, many ancient institutions disappear or get destroyed.
This Mosque is destroyed by fighter jets.
This Latino worker is sinking, along with his hammer and sickle – representing the disappearance of Marxism in third world countries. On Heliofant’s official site it is said: “After years of economic exploitation and the environmental degradation, Juan “Pepito” has a decidedly sinking feeling.”
Controlling the Masses
The world is under the spell of an evil sorcerer named Drako. According to the makers of the movie, Drako is:
“The Sorcerer, the unseen hand and spirit of madness seeking ever more control through trickery, lies, poisons, false-flag events, wars, and mountains of bureaucratic and legal framework to siphon off the energy of the inhabitants of the earth. He fears the light of day as he fears life itself, and operates in the shadows. His greatest power is his hold on the issuance of the currency.”
Does this sound like what we call the Illuminati? Yes, yes it does.
The same way the Illuminati seeks to brainwash children since birth, Drako preys on this unborn child named Ludovic.
Drako’s reptilian eye awaits the birth of Ludovic.
In esoteric tradition, the symbol of the serpent-entwined egg is known as the Orphic Egg. In short, it represents the latent seed of life and the infinite potential of creation. In other words, while this child appears to be hopeless, he still has the power to reach his full potential.
When the egg is hatched and the child is born, Drako literally takes control of his mind in a creepy, parasitic way.
Drako has the pyramid and all-seeing eye found on the US dollar bill on his chin. Not only does it represent the fact that he controls currency, it also represents the Illuminati. Underneath Drako’s eyes is the saying “Ordo Ab Chao” – meaning Order Out of Chaos, the occult elite’s favorite slogan. Also, the dude has only one eye open. Could he, like, more represent the Illuminati?
Amid all this chaos, a figure emerges with the power to make everything right.
Navigating on an Egyptian ceremonial boat, Jesus Christ appears to be in trance.
The Christ-like figure has a third eye painted right on the pineal gland, which refers to the concept of spiritual illumination. The triangle above the eye represents divinity and that illumination leads to the contact with one’s own divine nature. The symbols on the Christ’s forehead are in complete opposition to pyramid on Drako’s chin. While both figures bear similar symbols on their faces, Christ has them “right” and Drako has them in reverse/inverted, meaning that he (and the Illuminati) have corrupted these ancient symbols.
Named by the makers of the video “The Fire of Truth”, the Christ figure is not meant to be Jesus Christ himself, but a representation of the concept of Inner Christ as defined by Gnosticism. According to this esoteric current of Christianity, the Inner Christ is the potential found in everyone to reach godhood through spiritual illumination. On Heliofant’s website, The Fire of Truth is described as:
“That’s YOU!!! when you stand in the awareness of your sonship with the Divine and the brotherhood of mankind!!! “
When the Christ figure breathes the Fire of Truth on the world, some oppressed or distressed characters come back to life, like Ludovic, the child inside the egg. Also, Aali, a little Muslim boy that appeared battered and dead rises back to life.
Little Aali rises up from the crumbles of the destroyed Mosque, twirling in traditional Dervish attire.
The boy is executing the ancient art of Sufi whirling, which is practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. The Dervishes are an ancient esoteric current of Islam.
“The mysteries of the Islamic faith are now in the keeping of the dervishes – men who, renouncing worldliness, have withstood the test of a thousand and one days of temptation. Jelal-ud-din, the great Persian Sufic poet and philosopher, is accredited with having founded the Order of Mevlevi, or the “dancing dervishes,” whose movements exoterically signify the motions of the celestial bodies and esoterically result in the establishment of a rhythm which stimulates the centers of spiritual consciousness within the dancer’s body.” - Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages
The rebirth of the Muslim boy as a Whirling Dervish signals that there is a link between him and the Inner Christ: Both represent initiation into esoteric schools, which all have a common goal – the contact with divinity through spiritual illumination. Other religions with esoteric undercurrents such as Hinduism (represented by a dancing Shiva), are also represented in the movie. Is the Christ figure maybe the Anti-Christ deceiving all religions into following him? Perhaps.
When the Christ figure exits the Cathedral, the building (which was guarded by an evil-looking gargoyle) crumbles behind him.
In this new era of spiritual enlightenment, elaborate man-made buildings become unnecessary and outdated. They therefore crumble and disappear.
As night turns into day, the Christ figure opens his fiery eyes and navigates towards the sunlight. Lotus flowers, symbols of spiritual enlightenment in Eastern philosophy, appear behind him, confirming to the viewers that the path to freedom is indeed a spiritual one.
I, Pet Goat II has received widespread acclaim for its technical prowess and its original storytelling. Although there is no narration or dialogue, an elaborate story is delivered using the most ancient and universal language in History: Symbolism. Through symbols, the movie manages to deliver an acerbic critique of today’s Western Civilization, to describe its numerous evils and even to predict its inevitable downfall. More importantly, a thorough decoding of the movie’s symbolism reveals a powerful message of spiritual enlightenment based on ancient Mysteries. While this esoteric aspect of the movie might not be understood by many, it is at the core of the movie and is presented as the ultimate solution to the evils and corruption of today’s world. The movie’s conclusion is therefore a very personal one: Either YOU become a pet goat with a 666 bar-code on your forehead or YOU become a Christ figure with a third eye on your forehead. This notion of personal enlightenment is definitively a Gnostic one and is common to most esoteric schools of thoughts in all civilizations.
Agreeing or disagreeing with the movie’s spiritual conclusion is a question of personal beliefs, but it is nevertheless obvious that those behind I, Pet Goat II are “in the know” about all things occult, esoteric and even conspiratorial. Each scene has a profound underlying story behind it – whether it be historical, political or spiritual – that would take pages and pages of words to thoroughly explain. Therein lie the power of symbols: They can simply be admired for their aesthetic beauty or they can, when fully understood, reveal a profound story about humanity, God and everything in between.
Within the next year or two, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security will instantly know everything about your body, clothes, and luggage with a new laser-based molecular scanner fired from 164 feet (50 meters) away. From traces of drugs or gun powder on your clothes to what you had for breakfast to the adrenaline level in your body—agents will be able to get any information they want without even touching you. And without you knowing it.
The technology is so incredibly effective that, in November 2011, its inventors were subcontracted by In-Q-Tel to work with the US Department of Homeland Security. In-Q-Tel is a company founded “in February 1999 by a group of private citizens at the request of the Director of the CIA and with the support of the U.S. Congress.” According to In-Q-Tel, they are the bridge between the Agency and new technology companies.
Their plan is to install this molecular-level scanning in airports and border crossings all across the United States.
The machine is ten million times faster—and one million times more sensitive—than any currently available system. That means that it can be used systematically on everyone passing through airport security, not just suspect or randomly sampled people.
Above: The Genia Photonics’ Picosecond Programmable Laser scanner is capable of detecting every tiny trace of any substance on your body, from specks of gunpowder to your adrenaline levels to a sugar-sized grain of cannabis to what you had for breakfast.
Meanwhile, In-Q-Tel states that “an important benefit of Genia Photonics’ implementation as compared to existing solutions is that the entire synchronized laser system is comprised in a single, robust and alignment-free unit that may be easily transported for use in many environments… This compact and robust laser has the ability to rapidly sweep wavelengths in any pattern and sequence.” [PDF]
So not only can they scan everyone. They would be able to do it everywhere: the subway, a traffic light, sports events… everywhere.
The small, inconspicuous machine is attached to a computer running a program that will show the information in real time, from trace amounts of cocaine on your dollar bills to gunpowder residue on your shoes. Forget trying to sneak a bottle of water past security—they will be able to tell what you had for breakfast in an instant while you’re walking down the hallway.
The technology is not new, it’s just millions times faster and more convenient than ever before.
And the Russians also have a similar technology: announced last April, their “laser sensor can pick up on a single molecule in a million from up to 50 meters away.”
*** There has so far been no discussion about the personal rights and privacy issues involved. Which “molecular tags” will they be scanning for? Who determines them? What are the threshold levels of this scanning? If you unknowingly stepped on the butt of someone’s joint and are carrying a sugar-sized grain of cannabis like that unfortunate traveler currently in jail in Dubai, will you be arrested?
And, since it’s extremely portable, will this technology extend beyone the airport or border crossings and into police cars, with officers looking for people on the street with increased levels of adrenaline in their system to detain in order to prevent potential violent outbursts? And will your car be scanned at stoplights for any trace amounts of suspicious substances? Would all this information be recorded anywhere?
In other words, these portable, incredibly precise molecular-level scanning devices will be cascading lasers across your body as you walk from the bathroom to the soda machine at the airport and instantly reporting and storing a detailed breakdown of your person, in search of certain “molecular tags”.
(Researchers at Cornel university are working on ways to scan which are even cheaper … leading to the possibility that these type of scanners could one day be ubiquitous.)
I Heard That …
Moreover, as Newsweek, Telegraph, the Daily Record and many other mainstream sources have reported on experiments showing that mind-reading machines have gone from the realm of science fiction to engineering fact.
Newsweek points out:
Nothing in physics rules out remote detection of brain activity. In fact, says law professor Hank Greely of Stanford, an infrared device under development might read thoughts using little more than a headband. He can imagine a despot scanning citizens’ brains while they look at photos of him, to see who’s an opponent.
As with all technology, some uses will bring unalloyed benefits (translating a quadriplegic’s thoughts to move a prosthetic limb). Other uses … well, as Greely says, “we really don’t know where this will end.” That mind reading has begun, however, there is now no doubt.
