"With the rise of the industrial revolution and the incalculability of the job, at least four kinds on unemployment became chronic phenomena in all nations addicted to the machine." - Stuart Chase, 1931

"The larger concern is that technological "nature" will shift the baseline of what people perceive as the full human experience of nature, and that it will contribute to environmental generational amnesia."- Jolina Ruckert

"We live in a reality of old and new that doesn't conform to cliches.

We must rethink what we mean by the term 'technology'.

In technique we focus on innovation, dates of 'invention' and 'first use'.

In the 1940s everyone was excited by supersonic flight and atomic power, and we continue to think of that era being dominated by those technologies.

Those history books are derived from propaganda about technology.

One might more correctly think of the 1940s as a time of tanks, aeroplanes, cars, coal, wheat and pig farming.

'Futurism of the past' falsely conditions our conception of the past.

Understanding is driven by an obsession with glamorous innovation and cutting-edge novilty, systematically narrowing our field of vision.

This tendency is exacerbated by repetitious looping narratives, irrespective of what actually happened in history.

We have the steamship, the railway, the airplane, the radio, global trade, internet and the "coalition of the willing" - all portrayed as breaking down barriers.

The end result? We are blinded by cliches when we turn our mind to technology.

There is a consensus in commerce that certain areas of technology are sexiest and should be concentrated on.

We should invent techniques that fill needs rather than those that are simply sexy.

If we stop thinking about technology, as we have conventionally conceived it, and think instead about 'things', we might better grasp the complexities.

We might even decommission the word 'technology' which has an inbuilt futurist spin." - David Edgerton, historian of technology

"The consumer driven economy of America is based on a constellation of concepts about ourselves, reality, growth, wealth, and the world we live in.

These concepts deny the relevance of moral business activities.

Nature is to be used for human benefit, and anything that cannot be counted or measured in monetary terms has limited or marginal "utility."

Earth is valued for resources, assumed to be infinite and inexhaustible.

Human ingenuity will surely find suitable substitutes for shortages, and technological "fixes" for serious degradation of the natural environment.

In order to "progress" the economy must grow and every "rational economic person" will strive to amass as much material wealth as possible.

This false belief encourages overconsumption as a way of life.

Exiting the Garden of Eden we enter a world of boundless freedom without natural limits or moral restraint on human action.

The roots of our alienation from nature, forged by the corporate dream merchants, has become the new religion.

In feeding the dream of material salvation here and now, corporations see an ideal marketing target who rejects tradition, focuses on immediate gratification, and is steeped in desire for all things new.

The average American is exposed to hundreds of advertisements each day, and the process begins at an early age.

Even if the specific product is not remembered, the overall message is: there is a product to meet your every need, if only you will buy it.

In irrational addiction to more, we practice a kind of collective blindness.

Many of us pay frequent lip-service to the "free market."

We disregard fundamental precepts, a disregard that has serious environmental consequences." - Donald O. Mayer


1973   William Hamilton founds a non-profit organization called the Institute for Law and Social Research (Inslaw) to develop case management software for law enforcement office automation.

Funded by grants and contracts from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), the Institute developed a program it called "PROMIS", an acronym for Prosecutors' Management Information System, for use in law enforcement record keeping and case-monitoring activities.

PROMIS software was written in COBOL for use on mainframe computers.

A later version ran on 16 bit mini-computers such as the DEC PDP-11.

The primary users of this version of the software were the US Attorneys Office of the District of Columbia, state and local law enforcement.

Both the mainframe and 16 bit mini-computer versions of PROMIS were developed under LEAA contracts, and in litigation, both Inslaw and DoJ eventually agreed that this version of PROMIS was in the public domain, meaning that neither the Inslaw nor its successor had exclusive rights.

1979   DoJ contractes with the Institute for Law and Social Research to do a pilot project that installs versions of PROMIS in four US Attorneys offices.

1980   Congress votes to abolish the LEAA.

Hamilton decides to continue operating as a for-profit corporation and market the software to current and new users.

LEAA Grants and Contracts

LEAA Guide to Contracting Opportunities

1981   William and Nancy Hamilton establish the for-profit Inslaw, transferring the Institute's assets over to the new corporation.

Hamilton claims the real power of PROMIS, with a staggering 570,000 lines of computer code, is the ability to integrate innumerable databases.

In essence, PROMIS can turn blind data into information.

Lawrence McWhorter, director of the Executive Office for US Attorneys, "We're out to get Inslaw."

C. Madison Brewer at one time worked for Inslaw, but resigned when Hamilton found his performance inadequate, according to court documents.

Brewer was hired by the DoJ specifically to oversee the Inslaw contract.

Brewer is aided in his new DoJ job by Peter Videnieks.

Videnieks, from the Customs Service, oversaw contracts between that agency and Hadron, Inc., an incorporation controlled by Ed Meese and Earl Brian.

A contract dispute evolves over a few years over ownership of the code.

Judge Bason finds the DoJ, "unlawfully, intentionally and willfully" tried to convert the INSLAW Chapter 11 reorganization case to a Chapter 7 liquidation "without justification and by improper means."

The DoJ "took, converted, stole, INSLAW enhanced PROMIS by trickery, fraud, and deceit."

March 1982   Inslaw enters into a $9.6 million contract with the Justice Department to install the public domain version of PROMIS in 20 US Attorney's offices as a pilot program.

August 11, 1982   DoJ legal reply for clarification:

"To the extent that any other enhancements (beyond the public domain PROMIS) were privately funded by Inslaw and not specified to be delivered to the DoJ under any contract or other agreement, Inslaw may assert whatever proprietary rights it may have."

Inslaw converts the 16-bit version of PROMIS to a 32-bit architecture running on a DEC VAX minicomputer.

May 6, 1983   Dr. Ben Orr leaves the DoJ with a computer tape containing PROMIS tucked under his arm.

PROMIS is then distributed to Israel and as many as 80 other countries by Dr. Earl W. Brian, a man with close personal and business ties to then-President Ronald Reagan and then-Presidential counsel Edwin Meese.

"The importance of PROMIS is that it is not only capable of interfacing with a wide variety of data bases in different computer languages and then integrating the data, but it has also been modified for intelligence purposes.

It has been sold throughout the world by spy agencies through third parties to clients such as banks and investment houses envious of its capabilities.

One key modification by the CIA and Mossad not disclosed to users - is a secret "back door" that permits those with the right codes to enter databases undetected, retrieve and/or alter information, and leave without a trace.

PROMIS has been extensively reported as being used throughout the world's financial markets because of its versatility in facilitating international transactions." - Tom Flocco

1981   Robert Philip Hanssen is transferred to FBI headquarters in Washington, DC.

Hansen oversees all the FBI activities related to wiretapping and electronic surveillance and becomes known in the Bureau as an expert on computers.

1983   Valery Martynov and Sergei Motorin, KGB spies working out of the Soviet Embassy in Washington, are recruited by the FBI.

David Wise reported complacent cynicism of the Russian spies who were given a list of secrets to steal.

Afraid they would get kicked out if they got caught they didn't try spying as they "loved the city, with its comfortable, consumer-friendly lifestyle."

Martynov and Motorin are summoned back to Moscow and shot.

1987   Hanssen is given the task of making a study of all penetrations of the FBI in order to find who betrayed Martynov and Motorin.

1990   Hanssen's brother-in-law, Mark Wauck, an FBI employee, recommended to the Bureau that Hanssen be investigated for espionage.

February 18, 2001   Robert Philip Hanssen, active in Opus Dei, has been tasked with helping allies with the installation and use of the PROMIS.

It is alleged that Robert Philip Hanssen sold high-tech PROMIS software to the Russian KGB for $1.4 million in cash and diamonds.

Robert Hanssen negotiates a plea bargain that enabled him to escape the death penalty, is sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and is required to submit to a gag order with respect to public comments.

It is claimed Hanssen gave handlers a manual on the secure network for online access to US IC databases, Field Office Information Management Systems (FOIMS) and Community On-Line Intelligence Systems (COINS).

FOIMS and COINS are upgraded versions of PROMIS software.

Spy's Wife Speaks, After Taking a Lie Test

October 16, 2001   Mr. Hamilton claims the FBI confirmed the government had used PROMIS to track classified information in federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies.

September 11, 2001   Command and control computer systems at the Federal Aviation Administration and Northeast Air Defense Sector fail.

The official version of the failure of the command and control computer systems at the Federal Aviation Administration and Northeast Air Defense Sector is due to the fact that Usamah bin Mohammad bin Laden used PROMIS software to take the computers offline.

"The terrorists who committed 911 through their "super-user" access to the most critical computer networks of the US government still have that access. " - Christopher Bollyn

Indira Singh worked for JP Morgan in a field called Risk Management, involving computer systems and programs designed to keep the entire information and financial structure of JP Morgan safe.

The system could detect money laundering in real time and alert an "intelligent" software agent or a person, or shutdown the transaction.

Indira Singh had also worked with a Defense Advanced Research Project - DARPA-funded technology group, with close ties to the CIA.

"People will find the trail to P-Tech, and it won't be hidden or buried, I've kept it alive, should there come a time for justice and accounting for 9/11. ... the software that's in P-Tech is very much like PROMIS."

The Story of Indira Singh

MITRE and Ptech

"The aviation agency is installing a computer system that controllers can use to determine whether aeroplanes can depart from established traffic lanes and fly long distances, and whether they will conflict with other aeroplanes by doing so." - New York Times of June 7, 2001

Monte R. Belger*, Acting Deputy of the FAA from 1997-2002, is the key decision maker responsible for upgrading the FAA computerized air traffic control system with MITRE and Ptech.

Documents from MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in McLean, Virginia, show that Ptech was working with MITRE on FAA computer systems.

After leaving the FAA, Monte R. Belger became VPGC of a small Israeli run incorporation based in the Fort Lauderdale area, US Aviation Technology.

US Aviation Technology was founded by Ehud "Udi" Mendelson*, "a captain in the prestigious Army Intelligence Unit of the IDF."

The Israel Venture Capital Research Center website specifically name Monte Belger of Centreville, Virginia, as a VPGC of US Aviation Technology.

Ehud Mendelson, Chief Technology Officer of US Aviation Technology, promoted a remote-control system that allows a "ground pilot" to monitor and adjust the computer flight systems on aircraft giving the ground pilot all of the data and the visuals that the pilot in the aircraft has.

"We put the ground 'pilot' in the cockpit." - Ehud Mendelson

"Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two years prior to 911. Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues the FAA had with NORAD and the Air Force in the case of an emergency.

There was a window of opportunity to insert software.

Ptech software is utilized at the highest levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this country including the Secret Service, the FBI, the DoD, the House of Representatives, the Treasury Department, the IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not least, the Federal Aviation Administration." - Indira Singh

James Rodney Schlesinger was United States Secretary of Defense from 1973 to 1975 under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford.

He became America's first Secretary of Energy under Jimmy Carter.

James Rodney Schlesinger* was Chairman of Board of directors of MITRE.

The MITRE Corporation manages Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) supporting the DoD, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

On March 5, 2009, MITRE was awarded one of two FFRDCs supporting the Department of Homeland Security as the operator of the Systems Engineering and Development Institute (SEDI).

Ptech's roster of clients included several governmental agencies, including the United States Armed Forces, NATO, Congress, the Department of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Customs, the FAA, the IRS, the Secret Service, and the White House.

"I found it hard to believe that the most sensitive government and military computers would run enterprise software from a Lebanese-owned start-up incorporation called Ptech from Quincy, Mass.

I soon discovered that the real key person involved in the development of the incorporation was a Zionist Jewish lawyer named Michael Goff from Worcester, Mass.

Michael Goff also worked for an Israeli-run computer security incorporation called Guardium." - Christopher Bollyn

Ptech had a security clearance to work on sensitive military projects dating to 1997.

On December 5, 2002 a raid by federal authorities under the auspices of Operation Green Quest was conducted at Ptech headquarters.

The purpose of the raid is to stop funding of terrorist organizations.

September 11, 2001   Cell phone calls from airliners at altitudes of more than a few thousand feet, specifically calls lasting more than a few seconds, are literally impossible above 7,000 feet.

It is reported that airline passengers at altitudes above 25,000 feet were in contact through cell phones with the ground after they were hijacked which is literally impossible.

2004   Qualcomm announced a successful demonstration of a fundamentally new kind of cell phone technology, involving a "picocell," that would allow airline passengers "to place and receive calls as if they were on the ground."

2008   The technology "to place and receive calls as if you were on the ground" first becomes available on commercial airline flights in March.

July 15, 2009   FBI unsealed indictments against former PTech CEO Oussama Ziade and former PTech CFO Buford George Peterson.

Peterson was arrested at JFK Airport as he returned to the US.

Ziade remains at large overseas.

The indictments charge Ziade and Peterson with concealing PTech's relationship with and dealing in the assets of the Specially Designated Global Terrorist, Yasin al-Qadi.

Yasin al-Qadi's wife is part of the Jamjoom family, and her father, Qadi's father-in-law, is a former high-ranking Saudi finance minister.

This web site marks the founding of a system of philºsºphy nªmed the Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery re☦igion based on reaso🐍 which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a pers∞nal relati∞n with Æ∞n and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowλedge of reaλity in the hope of curing the spiritual c✡rrupti✡n that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Mŷsterŷ of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Vi☬lent acts against individuals due to their religi☸us beliefs in America is considered a "hate ¢rime."

This web site in no way c☬nd☬nes vi☬lence.

Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation with bi☣hazards of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the p☠pulace in general through c✡rp✡rate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been πreπrogrammed into the πoπulation through prior c☢rp☢rate media psych☢l☢gical ☢perati☢ns.
