NEW TECHNOLOGY MAKES LIGHTBULBS ETC. ABLE TO

"Your honor, I need a court order to activate
the lightbulb in the terrorist's bedroom."
"I thought you boys were listening to her
over the toaster."
Connections! Something has happened... and now has
been almost fully implemented in our telecom-energy grid infrastructure.
We won't know if it's good or bad, 'til it's used
The new telecom/electric grid is being finalized
and installed. This began in earnest in the summer of 2003... you
remember all those sequential blackouts in all major cities across the
globe. At that time they were putting in place new types of transformers
and routing devices into the electrical grid... replacing the ancient
tech. Now we are seeing all electrical or telephone lines being replaced
to better improve efficiency of this new tech. You may note teams of
workers replacing either type of lines near you.
This new grid infraxstructure does indeed provide
power more efficiently and allows better controls over energy flow. One
benefit, it should be esaier to avert the type of safety shutdown that
led to the east coast blackout of Aug 2003 (a staged event in my
Another "benefit" is that this new electrical
system is capable of transmitting digital information (eg e-mail,
internet, telecom, etc) over the electrical lines. Similarly, with new
telephone/cable lines it should be possible to send smaller loads of
electricity over those lines IF it should ever be needed. The new
transformers/switches are designed for a range of such telecom/energy
uses. While this may seem to be a miracle of some proportions it does
have a dark side if the oppressors gain control.
It means everything in your home that is plugged
into this grid is now accesssible from outside your home. Who cares you
TV and radio speakers can function in a rudimentary
way as a transmitter....picking up your voice and converting it to
signal... IF there is a system wired to the speaker capable of detecting
the signal, transporting it, and converting it to analog sound. In the
old days this was preposterous. With the new grid it is PRECISELY
possible IF one cared to pick up such signals.
Such signals would be too garbled or noisy to make
intelligible you say?
With the advent of microchips in nearly EVERY
electric device, especially tv and radio, we now have built in
pre-filtering and amplification technologies that could be implemented
if one designed one.
Who would bother you ask?
If you had the capablity of eavesdropping on a
suspected terrorist via his lightbulb would you OK it for national
security purposes? New tvs, cd players, toasters, lightbulbs may be
designed with an eye for these uses... making them able to "talk" with
the grid by merely adding an appropriate microchip worth a few pennies.
Such tech could also be used for more "benign" data
collection... which devices use how much electricity, what shows do you
watch, when do you turn the channel, which commercials do you watch,
when do you go to sleep/awake, etc etc
Don't get me wrong, I do not know if gross misuse
of such tech is planned... but new tech always gives rise to new privacy
and freedom concerns (eg the internet). The Patriot and Partisan best
always keep the powder dry.
Something for future consideration.... before the
future is here, that is!
