Foucault on disciplinary acts of cunning

June 1, 2015

Originally posted on Refracted input:

This is such a wonderful description of how institutions work from Foucault’s Discipline and Punish. The disciplinary society is only too alive and well – with a whole new technology at its disposal.

‘There can be no question here of writing the history of the different disciplinary institutions, with all their individual differences. I simply intend to map on a series of examples some of the essential techniques that most easily spread from one to another. These were always meticulous, often minute, techniques, but they had their importance: because they defined a certain mode of detailed political investment of the body, a ‘new micro-physics’ of power; and because, since the seventeenth century, they had constantly reached out to ever broader domains, as if they tended to cover the entire social body.

Small acts of cunning endowed with a great power of diffusion, subtle arrangements, apparently innocent, but profoundly suspicious, mechanisms…

Morgellons Disease exposed . . .

March 28, 2014

Originally posted on 2012: What's the 'real' truth?:

I’ve known for a very long time that Morgellons is a disease and that it has ‘dark’, unnatural causes, just as I have known that AIDS fits in the same category. Many of you who are just waking up are now getting hit with these facts, and so I’m publishing info again that will lead you to a site that gives good information on this problem. AIDS is not so well-known as a created disease, but Drunvalo has written about its origin in his book, The Ancient Secret of the Flower of LIfe, a book (in two volumes) which contains much of our ‘real’ history.

It’s time we understand the truth of who we are, where we really come from, and of above all, it’s time we remember what our purpose as a species is here on planet earth. Until we remember this, we will continue to destroy our home…

UFO filmed over Gold Coast skies

An unidentified flashing object seen flying over the Gold Coast has been filmed by baffled residents convinced they were being visited upon by extra-terrestrials.

Chevron Island resident Jack Purcell and his mother captured the UFO as it flew in the skies about their house on Thursday night.

“We were all just sitting out the front and my mum pointed to the sky and said ‘look at that colourful plane flying over’,” Mr Purcell said.

“Then it came to a sudden stop and was just hovering there. So I ran inside and grabbed my video camera.”

After notifying authorities, Mr Purcell said the police would “call it in” and sent over a near-by helicopter for a closer look.

However, police were not able to get a proper visual on the UFO because every time they flew in it “would turn its lights off and disappear,” said Mr Purcell who admits…

However, police were not able to get a proper visual on the UFO because every time they flew in it “would turn its lights off and disappear,” said Mr Purcell who admits he has become more open-minded about the mystery.

“It was really strange. I was quite sceptical of these things but it just blew my mind.”

A police spokeswoman said there were no helicopters in the area and believe the UFO was most likely some sort of small drone aircraft.

“Police believe it is a radio controlled device that was flying in the area and not a UFO,” the spokeswoman said.

“If it was anything larger it would have been picked up by the air control radars.”

But Mr Purcell is convinced the truth is still out there.

“I’ve seen drone choppers and they’re not that big whereas this thing was huge”.

Company says it has made an invisibility cloak

March 16, 2014

A Canadian company says it has made a camouflage material that makes its wearer invisible.

Hyperstealth Biotechnology Corp, a Canadian camouflage design company, claims the technology, called Quantum Stealth, works by bending light waves around the wearer.

“The material removes not only your visual, infrared (night vision) and thermal signatures but also the target’s shadow,” Hyperstealth president and CEO Guy Cramer said in a statement on the company’s website.

Mr Cramer said he could not reveal how the material bent light or show photos of it working “for reasons of security”.

Photos published on the website that are described as a “mock up” show a woman lying on grass draped in a material that looks exactly like the grass around her.

Mr Cramer said the US military and two Canadian military groups had tested the material and could vouch for it working “without batteries, lights or mirrors”.

He also claimed to be working with the US military to develop the technology further.

But don’t put one on your Christmas list just yet.

Mr Cramer said he did not expect the material would be made available for sale to the public.

“Not in the near future unless the military decided to release the technology and I don’t anticipate that will happen anytime soon,” he said.

Read Mr Cramer’s full explanation of the material and its development here.

SXSW Film Review: ‘The Dog’

March 16, 2014

Originally posted on Variety:

How often Hollywood embellishes. How rare then to find a documentary like “The Dog,” in which we discover that, if anything, Sidney Lumet’s “Dog Day Afternoon” left out much of the incredible story behind its 1972 hostage crisis, in which misguided romantic John Wojtowicz robbed a bank to finance his lover’s sex-change operation. Here, opening up to filmmakers Allison Berg and Frank Keraudren over the course of several years, the irrepressible stick-up man shares his side, serving as the unlikeliest of tour guides through the early gay rights movement in the process. This lively Drafthouse Films pickup should have a small, but wild ride in theaters and VOD.

Personified by Al Pacino in the 1975 film, Wojtowicz was never what one might consider leading-man material. A short, self-described “pervert,” the Brooklyn lothario compensated with charisma what he lacked in looks (and teeth). While married to his first wife, Wojtowicz sought sex…
