The outer skin of the airplane is metal so how has it created a stain that looks like it's soaked in? The middle blood stain looks airbrushed on.

I am not sure where this belongs or what it means...

If you live in the US it's nearly impossible to avoid the onslaught of media and civilian commentary on the presidential race.

I found this video interesting simply due to the ELA (starting at 28s) look of it which, AFAIK, is only available for analysis of still photos.

More DBA perhaps?

:lol: In my humble opinion - I'd say so ! Oh, well - more than a "DBA" op (Discredit By Association operation), the farcical 'ANONYMOUS HACKTIVIST GROUP' narrative is probably just an umpteenth scare-mongering ploy - 'courtesy' of the Nutwork - designed to make us all wet our pants and think that "we'd better stay anonymous if we're the sort of folks inclined to criticize the current "orwellian System"...

Quite frankly now: what exactly are Wikileaks / Edward Snowden / Anonymous hacktivist group - but three versions of the very same tasteless hamburger with different pickles / onions & toppings?

These two sentences from Wonkypedia should tell us all we need to know - concerning the "mysterious ANONYMOUS hacktivist / whistleblowing group" :
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_(group)

"In 2012, Time [magazine] called Anonymous one of the "100 most influential people" in the world."
Ah well.. if the influential Time magazine says so ... :rolleyes: (I wonder, does 'influential' actually mean "prone to transmit influenza - i.e. a flu?")

"The group's few rules include not disclosing one's identity, not talking about the group, and not attacking media."
I suppose the message goes a bit like: "Don't touch the media, you budding cyber-tewwowist - the media's on YOUR side ! :P

But this tidbit from Wonkypedia's "ANONYMOUS" page takes the cake for me...

"In January 2015, Anonymous released a video and a statement via Twitter condemning the attack on Charlie Hebdo, in which 12 people, including eight journalists, were fatally shot. The video, claiming that it is "a message for al-Qaeda, the Islamic State and other terrorists," was uploaded to the group's Belgian account. The announcement stated that "We, Anonymous around the world, have decided to declare war on you, the terrorists" and promises to avenge the killings by "shut[ting] down your accounts on all social networks." On January 12, they brought down a website that was suspected to belong to one of these groups. Critics of the action warned that taking down extremists' websites would make them harder to monitor."


How droll : the "ANONYMOUS HACKTIVIST GROUP" shutting down the websites of "ANONYMOUS (nay, NON-EXISTENT) TERRORIST GROUPS" who, we're told, 'threaten our Western values and Way of Life'. Good gracious me - what a silly, silly world we live in...

The group's few rules include not disclosing one's identity, not talking about the group, and not attacking media.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anonymous_(group)

Why not say this bizarre "not attacking media" rule shows Anonymous to be merely another aspect of the media? This makes for a simple theory with explanatory power:

Anonymous is a New Media psyop in the typical manner. It follows the characteristic "feedback circuit" of New Media psyops in its astroturf marketing which borrows (thematic, semantic, and iconographic) content from - and is given free publicity by - the same Old Media establishment it pretends to oppose. A clue as to who is running Anonymous is its marketing tie-ins to the V for Vendetta film, like the flatology campaign's tie-ins to The Matrix.

These two films were probably hatched at the same culture-counterculture incubator that brought us the Wachowskis.

They completed The Matrix in 1999. After its success, they directed two sequels, The Matrix Reloaded and The Matrix Revolutions, both released in 2003.

Later work

The Wachowskis' next feature-film project was V for Vendetta, an adaptation of Alan Moore's comic book of the same name. They wrote and produced the film with Matrix producer Joel Silver, who had previously purchased the film rights to the novel. The film was directed by Wachowski collaborator James McTeigue.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Wachowskis

The Wachowskis, through the Matrix films and their personal (possibly fictitious) biographical details, are promoters of the NWO's transhumanism.

We're of course familiar with multimedia propaganda ops. The major campaigns of the last many decades have all used every available mass communications format: TV, radio, newspaper, film, etc., so that the content of each format references and confirms (even if superficially opposing) the content of the others in regards to the objectives of the psyop.

Nowadays the internet is also a factor. But the internet differs from previous mass media in that it is very decentralized - its consumers can also be producers. Hence the increased astroturf component in today's propaganda.

Well, trans- something or other, at least. Both brothers have recently come out as transgender, so they now claim to be sisters.

This seems so unlikely to be true (whatever 'true' means in this context) that it brings every aspect of their public life into question.

Absolutely fascinating! It's like Bad Will Hunting meets Rain Man... Yeah, Rain Man, definitely Rain Man!

There wasn't any (overt) transgenderism in the Matrix films. There were, however, transhumanist themes in those films, including the depiction of technologies that paralleled the (at the time) newly launched Internet.

Transhumanism has much in common with both the media's utopian ballyhoo that accompanied the widespread rollout of the internet in the late-1990s and the Matrix depicted in films released around the same time.

Transhumanism (abbreviated as H+ or h+) is an international and intellectual movement that aims to transform the human condition by developing and creating widely available sophisticated technologies to greatly enhance human intellectual, physical, and psychological capacities. Transhumanist thinkers study the potential benefits and dangers of emerging technologies that could overcome fundamental human limitations, as well as the ethics of using such technologies.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transhumanism

Aside from what the Wachowskis did for transhumanism through the Matrix films, their own (possibly fictitious) transgenderism is another aspect of transhumanism they've helped condition society to accept.

So, the Wachowskis have promoted two aspects of transhumanism:

1. Cyborgization, in their Matrix films.

A cyborg (short for "cybernetic organism") is a being with both organic and biomechatronic body parts. The term was coined in 1960 by Manfred Clynes and Nathan S. Kline.

[...] It is hypothesized that cyborg technology will form a part of postbiological evolution, in the form of transhumanism - where people are artificially enhanced beyond their original biological characteristics.

D. S. Halacy's Cyborg: Evolution of the Superman in 1965 featured an introduction which spoke of a "new frontier" that was "not merely space, but more profoundly the relationship between 'inner space' to 'outer space' - a bridge...between mind and matter." [...] The 1970s television series The Six Million Dollar Man featured one of the most famous fictional cyborgs, referred to as a bionic man; the series was based upon a novel by Martin Caidin titled Cyborg. Cyborgs in fiction often play up a human contempt for over-dependence on technology, particularly when used for war, and when used in ways that seem to threaten free will. Cyborgs are also often portrayed with physical or mental abilities far exceeding a human counterpart (military forms may have inbuilt weapons, among other things).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyborgization

2. Transgenderism, in their personal (possibly fictitious) biographical details.

Gender neutrality or "gender transcendence" is part of the transhumanist concept of postgenderism.

Advocates of postgenderism argue that the presence of gender roles, social stratification, and cogno-physical disparities and differences are generally to the detriment of individuals and society. Given the radical potential for advanced assistive reproductive options, postgenderists believe that sex for reproductive purposes will either become obsolete, or that all post-gendered humans will have the ability, if they so choose, to both carry a pregnancy to term and father a child, which, postgenderists believe, would have the effect of eliminating the need for definite genders in such a society.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gender_neutrality

Postgenderism as a cultural phenomenon has roots in feminism, masculism, along with the androgyny, metrosexual/technosexual and transgender movements. However, it has been through the application of transhumanist philosophy that postgenderists have conceived the potential for actual morphological changes to the members of the human species and how future humans in a postgender society will reproduce. In this sense, it is an offshoot of transhumanism, posthumanism, and futurism.

One of the earliest expressions of postgenderism was Shulamith Firestone's The Dialectic of Sex. It argues,

"[The] end goal of feminist revolution must be, unlike that of the first feminist movement, not just the elimination of male privilege but of the sex distinction itself: genital differences between human beings would no longer matter culturally. (A reversion to an unobstructed pansexuality - Freud's 'polymorphous perversity' - would probably supersede hetero/homo/bi-sexuality.) The reproduction of the species by one sex for the benefit of both would be replaced by (at least the option of) artificial reproduction: children would born to both sexes equally, or independently of either. [...]"

Very impressive!

Looks like you've really done your gender bending wiki-research. Thank you very much Mr. Roboto & good luck with the operation(s)!
