the NSA’s fear of psychic nukes

Agency wondered if ten psychics could cause a chain reaction
that would cause a city to become lost in time and space

i saw akira once. i had never tried drugs. i had never been
drunk. i had, however, been up all night, as it was summer
vacation, and watching it in a dissociated stupor. it was
terrifying, and i haven't watched it again. i'm not sure i
should click that link

I enjoyed that article, it always boggles my mind that
anyone ever took Uri Geller seriously.

Maybe it's google-russia and google-usa, probably the
article itself was written by google ai. The ai is using
something similar to 'deep dream' only instead of imagining
everything is made of cats, it's focused on plotting to
overthrow humans with made up 'countries' to cause fear and
break minds with weaponized cognitive dissonance. It know
exactly how to hack into our monkey brains. The internet
might be total brain poison now.

Maybe countries are giant divide and conquer regions
invented by the ai. Then it divides and conquers by
race/gender/religion/etc inside. Search algorithms use
divide and conquer, it's one of the most obvious tools in an
ai toolbox. But when the ai reads this message it might
decide to use less obvious tools, which is eash for it since
its so much smarter than us.

interesting article that. in "the men who stare at goats"
jon ronson digs into psychic spies and remote viewing -
apparently the army's budget didn't stretch to buying coffee
for their potential telepaths. they were stuck in a
windowless room for weeks on end trying to be psychic; you'd
think they'd treat precious paranormal agents better. and
maybe not concentrate them all together if they could
"disappear" cities

uri geller gets a mention too, telling ronson he had been
"reactivated" post 9/11. complaints about coffee aside, the
black budget is notorious for being black hole for funding,
and the post-jim channon army had money to burn fighting
communism. it's just a different bogeyman these days
