“Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance.” — Albert Einstein
It has been done before, what makes you think its not going to happen again? A little history for you – Adolf Hitler was DEMOCRATICALLY ELECTED Chancellor of Germany in 1933. The people CHOSE to empower him, and much like we have been forced to succumb to crippling laws restricting our god given freedoms – Hitler also empowered himself with these laws. The only difference was what the propaganda artists at the time referred to them as. Then it was the enabling act. Now its the Patriot act. The war on terror has opened the same gateways that the nazi’s wrenched open back before world war two and all it takes is a concious effort to find out the truth for yourself.
This is where it starts, not ends i’m sorry to say. If you refuse to even acknowledge our past history that is wide in the open now for everyone to see – then it’s sad. The carrot on the stick mentality has gotten the better of you and there is probably too much comfort to be sought in material possessions and meaningless distractions like MTV or what ever the latest reality TV show is that has absorbed your every thought. Awareness is neccessary to prevent this agenda from progressing, how could you possibly stop something from happening if you refuse to acknowledge its existence. ‘Conspiracy Theory’ is indeed a sociological weapon that has been turned against the people in true Sun Tzu fashion. Divide and Conquer. It has empowered people to simply shut of their brains by arming themselves with a series of quickly administered ignorance in the form of a one liner.
“There is a principle which is a bar against all information, which is proof against all arguments and which cannot fail to keep a man in everlasting ignorance; that principle is contempt prior to investigation.” — Herbert Spencer
This shocking revelation only came to me recently, I stumbled across a website that described the barcode that we know today. After having been fresh from watching the documentary ‘One Mainframe to Rule them All’ I was fully aware of the ludicris involvment of IBM and the Nazi regime. If you haven’t seen it yet, do yourself and others a favour and watch it. If you cannot identify the parts of your life where this is being conditioned into your thought – then we are doomed. It is being SOLD to us and millions of people aren’t even aware of it.
It started with the Barcode. According to wikipedia – “A barcode is an optical machine-readable representation of data, which shows certain datas on on certain products. Originally, barcodes represented data in the widths (lines) and the spacings of parallel lines, and may be referred to as linear or 1D (1 dimensional) barcodes or symbologies. They also come in patterns of squares, dots, hexagons and other geometric patterns within images termed 2D (2 dimensional) matrix codes or symbologies. Although 2D systems use symbols other than bars, they are generally referred to as barcodes as well. Barcodes can be read by optical scanners called barcode readers, or scanned from an image by special software.”
There is a heap of different styles of barcode, you’ve lived before and purchased something – I dont need to convince you of this. Just as with many other shared industry protocols, there needs to be a standard. The most commonly used standard today, was invented by IBM. It is known as the UPC – Universal Product Code. The UPC encodes 12 decimal digits as SLLLLLLMRRRRRRE, where S (start) and E (end) are the bit pattern 101, M (middle) is the bit pattern 01010 (called guard bars), and each L (left) and R (right) are digits, each one represented by a seven-bit code. This is a total of 95 bits. The bit pattern for each numeral is designed to be as little like the others as possible, and to have no more than four consecutive 1s or 0s in order. Both are for reliability in scanning.
Wallace Flint proposed an automated checkout system in 1932 using punch cards. Bernard Silver, Franklin Light, and Norman Joseph Woodland developed a bull’s-eye style code, patented it (filed in 1949 and received in 1952). In the 1960s railroads experimented with a multicolor barcode for tracking railcars, but eventually abandoned it.
A group of grocery industry trade associations formed the Uniform Grocery Product Code Council which with consultants Larry Russell and Tom Wilson of McKinsey & Company, defined the numerical format of the Uniform Product Code. Technology firms including Charegon, IBM, Litton-Zellweger, Pitney Bowes-Alpex, Plessey-Anker, RCA, Scanner Inc. Singer and Dymo Industries/Data General proposed alternative symbol representations to the council. In the end the Symbol Selection Committee chose to slightly modify, changing the font in the human readable area, the IBM proposal designed by George J. Laurer.
Although various companies had UPC Scanning systems in the back of stores, the first UPC marked item ever scanned at a retail checkout (Marsh’s supermarket in Troy, Ohio) was at 8:01 a.m. on June 26, 1974, and was a 10-pack of Wrigley’s Juicy Fruit chewing gum. The entire shopping cart also had barcoded items in it, but the gum was merely the first one picked up by the cashier. This item is currently on display at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C.
“The DNA Transistor is a project from IBM Research that aims to advance personalized medicine, by making it simpler (and much cheaper) to read an individual’s unique DNA sequence — the special combination of proteins that makes you unlike anyone else. The technology isn’t finished yet, but its potential is tantalizin enough that IBM wanted to share it with the world. And the company claims researchers are making progress. Essentially a bar code reader for genes, the DNA Transistor is part technique and part device. It consists of a 3-nanometer wide hole, known as a nanopore, in a silicon microchip. A sensor in the pore can read DNA and determine its unique makeup.”
I’ve cocked on about it enough so I’m not even going to go into the cashless society. I’ll link it for you how ever for convenience. But if you need more explanation of the above — see the flash example I have created to full explain it to myself. I did not make these barcodes up myself, I used a program that is available for commercial applications, so you can generate barcodes for your business.
