Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

WikiLeaks' Advent Calendar

Every day in December has opened a new door like an Advent calendar, and the surprises behind each door are orchestrated by Julian Assange. Some of his followers think he is dead, despite recent statements about his Swedish rape case. His supporters, who are reading WikiLeaks materials, believe they have uncovered child sex trafficking rings in the American establishment. Their comments on these documents are dismissed as lies, hoaxes, and suppressed as hate speech by the mainstream media and governments.

Perhaps more intriguing than the Pizzagate allegations is the claim that Assange was threatened in mid-October 2016 and this threat tripped part of his dead man's switch. On 23 November 2016, there was a report at The Lie Politic that a 'taster' was released on WikiLeaks to protect his life. That taster is here. I will show some of the images and links from the taster below the jump. By the third week of November, The Lie Politic claimed, the material had been available for a month and it was not discussed in the alt-press or the mainstream press. The former are wrapped up in Pizzagate. The latter are busy dismissing everything the alt-news are reporting as fake news.

Canadian actress Pamela Anderson visited Assange with trays of London vegan goodies on 15 October 2016 and 13 November 2016, which fueled conspiracy theories that the food was poisoned. Anderson first met Assange in August 2014. Image Source: Express.

In November 2016, images circulated of Anderson attending a Maria Abramović Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) occult gala in Los Angeles, California: An Artist's Life Manifesto (12 November 2011; see more photos of stars here). Above, some of the gala photos, showing Debbie Harry cutting a cake made in her likeness, discussed amid the recent WikiLeaks/Pizzagate controversy. Images Sources: Getty Images/MOCA via a mirror site, here. Choreographer Yvonne Rainer slammed the 2011 gala in an open letter against the "grotesque" bastardization of performance art, and her protest against this dinner was supported by other artists.

Assange's followers and MSM sources claimed that the above pre-commitments were threats against anyone planning to kill Assange, not indicators that Assange's dead man's switch had been tripped and Assange was dead.

Mainstream and alt branches of the media are battling to control the public square, the Internet, and the majority vote. They are resorting to identical tactics of accusing each other of faking information, and inciting repression, totalitarianism and anti-social violence.

Where once Julian Assange was the dissident darling of the mainstream media, now he is the bête noire. Despite the argument that WikiLeaks is fueling fake news, the organization has released hacked information which contains facts. Even if Assange's aims are politicized or commandeered by Putin, the leaks still reveal serious problems. Those defending alt-news Websites claim that this is precisely why the information is censored, suppressed, and dismissed as fake; the information is not being properly investigated or verified because the MSM have dismissed the leaks as lies, hate speech, and weaponized information. Mainstream news outlets attack alt-news investigators as dupes; but when they report on citizen journalists in non-western régimes, they remain breathless with admiration.

Double standard: MSM admiration of whistle-blowers and citizen journalists who expose authoritarianism outside western democracies remains high. That enthusiasm for unregulated online journalism fades when citizen journalists try to expose corruption and establishment violence closer to home. In the west, citizen journalists' revelations are automatically dismissed as fake, hate-filled, alt-right, amateur, populist, wild, discredited conspiracy theories.

Below, some images, purportedly from Assange's dead man's switch 'taster.' I have not verified that this material is indeed part of Assange's dead man's switch, or that the information is genuine, or that labels of the information are accurate. I present them here to consider the possibility that behind the crazy, distracting battle between the MSM's fake news allegations and alt-right occult-pedo-Illuminati-scandals, images like this are the real sources of concern.

These leaked files cover an enormous amount of jaw-dropping information, from every continent; and they tell you how the world sadly, horribly works: from Kenyan police extra-judicial killings; to the Scarlett Keeling murder (which oddly, has a pizza-related file, and it is evident that the Pizzagate FBI document on secret pedophile symbols came from this trove as well); to the 2008 Sarah Palin hack. There is information on thousands of topics, including: prediction on the 2008 Austrian election; Barclays bank tax avoidance; avian flu; Canadian universities; American universities; Afghanistan; the British National Party; the compromise of Rocky Mountain Labs in 2006; the CIA; the FARC in Colombia; the European Court of Auditors; the FBI; FEMA; muzzling the Guido Fawkes Website in the UK; the 2009 e-mails of Holocaust-denying historian David Irving, showing his contacts and supporters; China; the Democratic Republic of Congo; the Indian military; Iran; Iraq; child sex in Italy; Kenya; the Mormons; the US Marine Corps handbook on North Korea; New Zealand; Norway; nuclear power plants in Malaysia; Pakistan; Peru; the Rosicrucians; a German report on secret prisons; Swiss banks; a Swiss child porn investigation; Tanzania; Thailand; Timor; the UK; the US military; the Vatican bank; Venezuela; and American college fraternity initiation rituals. There are even bits on Scottish Freemasons, scientologySteve Jobs - and a draft script for the Indiana Jones movie, Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. There is almost nothing on Russia in this batch of documents.

I note that the documents marked 'Spy Files' lead to 404 blank screens: "404 We are sorry, the file you have requested could not be found. Please wait [a] few minutes and try again." The list of spy projects (here) promises that WikiLeaks has information on these topics and can make the documents active, but has not yet done so. Assange's group states that their documents prove that western governments are enabling mass surveillance of their own citizens, and of citizens living in repressive régimes; WikiLeaks will be releasing this information in 2017:
"Mass interception of entire populations is not only a reality, it is a secret new industry spanning 25 countries

It sounds like something out of Hollywood, but as of today, mass interception systems, built by Western intelligence contractors, including for ’political opponents’ are a reality. Today WikiLeaks began releasing a database of hundreds of documents from as many as 160 intelligence contractors in the mass surveillance industry. Working with Bugged Planet and Privacy International, as well as media organizations form six countries – ARD in Germany, The Bureau of Investigative Journalism in the UK, The Hindu in India, L’Espresso in Italy, OWNI in France and the Washington Post in the U.S. Wikileaks is shining a light on this secret industry that has boomed since September 11, 2001 and is worth billions of dollars per year. WikiLeaks has released 287 documents today, but the Spy Files project is ongoing and further information will be released this week and into next year.

International surveillance companies are based in the more technologically sophisticated countries, and they sell their technology on to every country of the world. This industry is, in practice, unregulated. Intelligence agencies, military forces and police authorities are able to silently, and on mass, and secretly intercept calls and take over computers without the help or knowledge of the telecommunication providers. Users’ physical location can be tracked if they are carrying a mobile phone, even if it is only on stand by.

But the WikiLeaks Spy Files are more than just about ’good Western countries’ exporting to ’bad developing world countries’. Western companies are also selling a vast range of mass surveillance equipment to Western intelligence agencies. In traditional spy stories, intelligence agencies like MI5 bug the phone of one or two people of interest. In the last ten years systems for indiscriminate, mass surveillance have become the norm. Intelligence companies such as VASTech secretly sell equipment to permanently record the phone calls of entire nations. Others record the location of every mobile phone in a city, down to 50 meters. Systems to infect every Facebook user, or smart-phone owner of an entire population group are on the intelligence market."
