The internet was designed as a smart wide-area network in the 1960s by defence departments in the United States, United Kingdom and France.  The internet was designed to re-route data traffic to get to its destination should any of the mid nodes be taken down.  In the 1970s, the internet was made available to the education system and in the 1980s the technology was commercialized.  Use of the internet boomed in the 1990s.  (Wikipedia)

People born in the early to mid-1900s have seen amazing changes to technology:  from horse and buggy to automobiles and airplanes; radios, telephones and televisions as household habits; calculators, desktop and laptop computers; satellites; networks wired and wireless; cellular telephones; and now convergence – the merging of all the different technologies in forms both foreseen by science fiction and much not expected at all.  Technology is exciting.  It broadens our horizons.  It gives us capabilities beyond ourselves.  But perhaps we are moving too fast to really ask ourselves – are there any risks?  The answer is yes, to both your physical and personal security.


Artificial Intelligence

There is a lot of talk about artificial intelligence (AI) these days with mainstream sources conveying the impression that computers are ready to take over the world.  The impression is more dangerous than reality. 

·         In reality, computers are simply electricity flowing through wires.  Their Archilles’ heel is electricity.  Turn off or interfere with the power (on/off, electro-magnetic pulse (EMP), pull the battery, drop the box,) and computers are useless.

·         Computers are programmable.  Programmed algorithms are servants of the programmer/funder (i.e. slot machines).

·         Computers can be hacked (i.e. voting machines).

·         Computers cannot be random as their logic is mathematical and can be recreated.  Once a computer can be truly random, then AI is possible.  However, the powers-that-be do not want random, they want control. 

Today’s adage that computer systems require more and more data proves that today’s “AI” is really just consensus data based on vast computer resources rather than true artificial intelligence.  True artificial intelligence does not yet exist.


The danger of prematurely declaring artificial-intelligence is that the powers-that-aught-not-be and other charlatans will use AI as an infinite excuse for bad or criminal behaviour.  Once a computer “takes charge”, humans are able to offload responsibility even though human programming/intent is actually at fault.  Meanwhile, “AI” simply consists of censored data or outright lies equivalent to propaganda.


For instance,



Knowing that computers are 100% man-made, why do we expect computers to be infallible?

Quantum Computing




Wireless technology is convenient.  The ability to pass energy and data through the air is both amazing and useful.  Restaurant servers can take your order, which goes directly to the kitchen.  Store clerks can run around taking inventory directly updating the system.  You can sit on a beach with your phone or laptop and work, read or play games.


However, all those signals – and the results of all those cross-signals, are biologically dangerous to you, your children, your grandchildren and all the animals, insects and birds of the natural world.


Definitively, wireless should not be in your child’s school.  And wireless in your home should be turned off at night while you are sleeping.  Or better yet, used wired technology instead.


Today wireless technology can be achieved through Bluetooth, WiFi and cellular networks.
