We have heard of it, “They” spy on us, it’s not news. But do you know how they spy on us? Do you know their ways of acquiring information about who we are, what we do and what are we going to do?
Knowing how they do it may help us take a little control back in our hands and secure our privacy. It is a long shot, but if we all work together and pay attention on these things, “They” will lose their power over us.
6. The Internet Says a Lot About Your Character
Have you ever listened to a song on YouTube and the next day similar songs were found in your recommended sidebar, or have you ever searched Google about something and when you went on Facebook an ad, exactly about the thing you searched before was on your Sponsored sidebar?
Of course this happened, it happens to all of us because the large companies use algorithms and codes to create a profile on each one of us. With these profiles they can target individuals more easily and sell them stuff, according to their needs. If “They” know what are our needs they know a lot about our character.
But, that’s not all…
Your internet connections, your friends, your likes, your pages, your messages, places you spend most of your time on the internet, “They” know all of this and when you combine all this information, it creates a very vivid profile of your character, more vivid than your Profile Picture on Facebook.
You’ll probably say “They” don’t have a right to do this. But the thing is you gave them the right to this. You approved to share your personal information each time you “agreed” with the Terms and Conditions and we all have read the Terms and Conditions didn’t we?
5. Telephones Record Your Conversations
You may be the kindest person in the world, but if you say something like “bomb”, “kill” or some other threatening word, an automatic recorder starts recording your conversation. After your conversation is recorded it is sent to a supercomputer that analyzes its “Threat Alert” and calculates the probability of it being a real threat. The phone you use doesn’t even have to have a recording option, the conversation is recorded through the network provider you use.
This is for the best of everyone, right? I mean it makes us safer from hostile plots. But who is to say that there are no other hot-words that turn the recording on which don’t have anything to do with terrorists?
4. Biometric IDs Tell About Your Location
Almost all of us have an ID, Driver’s License, Passport, or/and a Credit Card, some even Credit Cards. In each of them there is a chip which holds your personal information, like Who you are, Where are you from, Age, City, and Criminal Records.
Many public places like bus, train stations, airports, large markets and restaurants have a reader that reads your biometric chip without you even noticing. The collected info is sent into the FBI, CIA, NSA’s database for further use. When you pass near a biometric detector, “They” almost immediately know where you are and depending on what category you fall into, they know your potential actions.
3. Public Cameras Reveal Your Feelings
We all know that certain feelings make our bodies react in a specific way, like our pupils get bigger, our heart rate rises, temperature of our body changes etc. We also know that there are public cameras on almost every corner and not to speak of places like banks, stations and airports. Some even have home cameras to keep their home safe.
But do you know that every camera has an IP address which can be hacked? Do you know that there is a program “They” use which analyzes your face, body and behavior calculating what emotions you feel? With the facial recognition system/feeling recognition system and some great hackers you can know everyone’s emotions at any time as long as there are cameras around.
2. Satellites Show Your Journey
It’s like this, the whole world can use Google Earth but “They” can use Earth in Real Time. Today there are more than 3000 satellites orbiting The Earth and Over 16,291 previously launched objects have decayed into the Earth’s atmosphere.
So you see how things work, you make a large company and then you launch yourself a satellite in space to celebrate the starvation in the world because that’s what others did.
Jokes aside, this is the truth. There are many satellites orbiting around The Earth and more than half of them belong to the ones who spy on us. Their satellites have High Quality cameras that film The World, like a reality show, and they can zoom so close to see a license plate of a moving car.
So every move you make, every step you take “They” will be watching you. Kind of romantic don’t you think?
1. Barcodes Speak of Your Lifestyle
Have you ever wondered what the heck is a Barcode? It is an optical machine-readable representation of data relating to the object to which it is attached, a machine-readable code in the form of numbers and a pattern of parallel lines of varying widths, printed on and identifying a product. Despite its definition, in other words, a barcode is a code holding information about the product you buy.
Every product falls into a certain category. But the categories we usually think of, like technology, gardening or food are not the categories that “They” take in consideration. Their categories are much more complex than the ones we know.
They work by an algorithm which calculates how many products from one category you’ve bought and what are the other products you are buying and what picture your shopping cart paints for you. All of the items are looked upon as one big description and they are not the ones that fall into a certain category, no, you are the one who is being categorized.
So, let’s recap really quick…
“They” collect data from your time on The Internet and create a profile of your character and your interests. The Telephones and Cameras tell your intentions. Biometric Chips and Satellites show your location and your Shopping Cart reveals your lifestyle.
All of this information is kept in your personal profile and all of this makes knowing someone a lot easier even if you’ve never even seen the person. Every profile describes each person’s deepest desires and fears, personal behavior, options, flaws and talents.
Now imagine these profiles of individuals on a global scale, arranged by demographics, age, sex, character, astrological sign and what a person had for lunch. It is insanely easy to guess who will act how in a certain situation which makes things a lot easier than they look.
This makes the world a giant Chess Table and every individual a certain figure that acts in a specific way. So, change your Paradigm, stop acting as a chess piece and use your heart to do what really matters.
