The Smart Camera
Street Surveillance

Surveillance cameras make one think Big brother is watching - but, in truth, they are needed to solves crimes and prevent terrorism. There are thousands of unreported terrorists plots thwarted each year that are not reported in the news. Terrorist cells exist in many communities.

    Within the grids, human consciousness is now programmed to become radical, explaining why people are going crazy. They say that humans get brainwashed by terrorists and the military, but all of this goes to the larger Program - the one in which we are vicariously experiencing in the simulation most humans believe is their true reality.

This morning, the Today Show reported on the efficiency of Smart Cameras everywhere in NYC. This type of surveillance reminded me of The Machine in the TV series Person of Interest - which I believe exists but few know about it. The Machine is a mass surveillance computer system programmed to monitor and analyze data from surveillance cameras, electronic communications, and audio input throughout the world. From these data, the Machine accurately predicts violent acts.

Drop a bag in NYC? Cue the bomb squad   NBC - April 23, 2013
If you put your backpack down in lower Manhattan and walk away, a "smart" camera may focus in on it. New York City's top cop explains how the city's surveillance cameras help authorities investigate potential threats. If you put your backpack down in lower Manhattan and walk away, a smart camera may just focus in on it. And if you don't retrieve it within a few minutes, a bomb squad might storm your knapsack. More and more smart surveillance cameras are being used to identify potential threats in New York City, according to Ray Kelly, the city's police commissioner. "You can put an algorithm in these cameras" that can spot potential threats like a discarded backpack or large package, Kelly explained.

Along with Google Earth and Google Maps - we have Google Street View which provides panoramic views from positions along many streets in the world.

    Fact: We exist in a consciousness program that is watching us. Within that program are programs within programs that are also watching. Watching means waiting. We are waiting.

    Fact: You are projected illusion and are therefore an observer.

    Fact: Reality is a mathematical construct designed and created by algorithms. It may seem illogical, but understanding the purpose of its inception will allow it to make sense.

    Fact: Every "day" your programming is being rebooted.

    Fact: Technology and the Internet have come into play in end times to accelerate the process of closure and the understanding of reality.

Traveling Today

As if things weren't bad enough at airports - heightened security - weather and other delays - now we find something even worse.

    Flight delays are here.   CNN - April 23, 2013
    Just like the government warned a few months ago, air travelers have started experiencing late flights caused by forced federal spending cuts. On Monday afternoon, all three New York City-area airports reported delays for all incoming flights, in part because fewer air traffic controllers reported for duty as they were forced to take unpaid time off, according to unions and airline trade groups. The FAA said there were 400 furlough-related flight delays Sunday. On Sunday night, flights into to New York's John F. Kennedy International and LaGuardia airports were delayed by an average of 70 minutes.

Friends and clients who work in the Travel and Tourism Industry report that business is down. Most people I know make their own travel arrangements - unless business trips or something abroad.

Do you know where your child is?

The world is a crazy place and growing crazier every day.

Last week, just after the Boston Marathon Bombings, when many people were on edge, I stopped at Staples to do some shopping. On the way out, I noticed a little boy, no more 3 years old. He had big blue eyes and short blondish hair and was waiting for the sliding doors to open that lead to the parking lot. He seemed to be lost, so I stood there a second as the doors opened and 3 Staples' employees returned after their break.

"Don't let him out", I said. "He's lost." They turned and looked at him, but he walked over to me with the saddest expression and said, "Where's my daddy?"

"We'll find him," I said knowingly, and walked back in the store with the little boy and the 3 men. For some reason, I called out across the store, "Where's daddy?" and the boy smiled as if I was meant to make him laugh. It wasn't hard to spot daddy who was frantically looking for his son and ran toward us, as the little boy ran into his arms. Daddy and I smiled at each other. Not all stories end that well and daddy learned a lesson many parents do - you can't take your eyes off your children even for a minute ... bored children tend to wander. I shudder to think of him alone in the parking lot, where many cars pull in quickly or that he could have been taken.

In the USA an estimated 800,000 children are abducted every year.
