The Butterfly War described the concept of cyber phrenology and detailed how make automated censorship platforms target unintended targets.
Here’s the most comprehensive timeline of contributing factors for the idea:
2003-2012: I engaged in extensie research and experimentation for the ideas within my book, “The Empath“. The story is about an AI platform that consumes huge amounts of Internet activity to understands and predict human emotions. These predictions are then used to influence and control powerful economic and political institutions while hiding its influence as genuine human activity. There’s an entire crazy story behind my efforts to write this book that I will release that at a later date.
Aug 23rd, 2012: NodeJS contributors and GitHub employees colluded to intimidate and silence me because I complained about male engineers acting strangely around female engineers. They tried to get me fired from my job and attempted to blacklist me from the tech field entirely at a time when my now adopted daughter lived in dire and extreme poverty.
Aug 26th, 2016: CultState released “The Planned Destruction of the Alt-Right“ which went semi-viral in certain circles. It explained, at a high level, how state actors could be using the repeal of the Smith-Mundt Act to stage political destabilization tactics on American soil.
Nov 9th, 2016: The impossible happened: Donald Trump won the election for the United States Presidency.
Aug 2016 - Sep 2017: I was employed at Rubicon Project as an engineer to understand the finer detaisl on how ad exchanges work. I demonstrated enough understanding of the industry to make a recommendation for a buyer to the CEO when the company was severe performance problems.
May 15th, 2017: After months of research and evaluation of ad exchanges, I received a call from A**** (I’m not ready to reveal that one yet!) to explore the feasibility of my plan to eliminate the political power of ad exchanges. The plan was sent to Cambridge Analytica for analysis. (Yes, this actually happened)
Sept 21th, 2017*: I was used as a source of the Playboy article on Milo Yiannopolous and managed to establish a rapport with several Gizmodo editors.
When I initially chronicled these events, I had done so via an impromptu AMA on 8chan that has been active for almost four months. The community’s response yieled an extremely unexpected outcome. The curiousity, interplay, and revelations were genuine enough to make me start organizing my efforts in a more formal and accessible way. Ever since I started The Abusive Oracle, I’ve left hidden and complicated clues everywhere to protect myself and to send signals to certain types of personalities. After everything that has been going on, I beleive the world just might finally be ready to tackle the problem of the new emotion and what it means for national security, domestic affairs, economic arrangements, and human destiny.
If all goes as planed, next week will bring this act of the story to an end. To verify my involvement in that upcoming event, this SHA-512 was generated based on a sentence involving the names and actions of the event that will take place. I injected a newline after every 32 characters to improve readability on mobile devices:
By Friday of next week, I will release the sentence used to generate the hash above. I used the following command on a Debian-flavor of Linux:
echo "<my hidden message to reveal next friday" | sha512sum
UPDATE: I had begun writing this on Janurary 10th, 2018 and the date mispublished. I’ve since updated the date and URL to reflect the date the article was actaully released. (Thanks @eli_schiff)
