Renoir: General Network Visualization and Manipulation Program

by 5ocietyx


With the recent revelations by Edward Snowden regarding the NSA’s domestic spying programmes, a great deal of attention has focused on this clandestine agencies ability to slurp network traffic and decrypt its contents.

How it then analyses and visualises this mountain of data is somewhat more opaque.

One way this is achieved is detailed on their own website’s research section. You can find the link here. A brief description follows:

Renoir is a general-purpose desktop program for manipulating and visualizing networks, otherwise known as graphs. It is written in Java to run on any platform that supports the Java Virtual Machine. Through a well-developed GUI, users can manipulate, analyze, and picture graphs. The program is very general, and applicable to visualizing any information expressing associations.

Renoir offers a variety of both automated and manual layout operations for conveying information. It provides user control of node icons, node color, node labeling, link colors, link styles, link labeling, and a host of other preferences. Graphical elements can have any number of attributes of varying types, including text, numbers, sound, and pictures. Attributes may be local or reside on other computers or in databases. Renoir offers unique capabilities to abstract the graph particularly when the graph gets complex, presenting simplified diagrams with details, which can be expanded and/or contracted real-time.

From what they describe it would appear United States Patent Number 6,515,666 otherwise known as ‘Renoir’ is one way they go about it.

Written in Java, Renoir is network-enabled graphing software, very similar to a tool the 5ociety has itself utilized recently provided by Gephi when attempting to analyse the chatter on the ‘Savile Outed as a Paedo‘ mega-thread on the David Icke Forums.

You can play around with the alpha version here (allow 30 secs to load).

Renoir was of course a famous French Impressionist painter. Impressionist painting characteristics include relatively small, thin, yet visible brush strokes that together form an interpretation of reality. The brush strokes of the NSA’s graphing software are the nodes and the picture of reality they form would appear to be whatever the operative wants to graph.

It is quite easy to see how this would potentially work. The operative could easily scale from a national or even regional level right down to an individual and their associated groups and personal profile that may include real-time communications.  And they could do all this from the comfort of their laptop sat in polo shirt, shorts and sneakers eating doughnuts.

For all its generalised power, ‘Renoir’ is merely one small component of the overall capabilities of the U.S.’s  ‘Total Information Awareness’ programme that some say has taken on an artificial intelligence of its own and is known by the nickname ‘Mr Computer’ and is considered to be a digital ‘superconsciousness’.

When One become two

by 5ocietyx

Always two there is…

This report from 2006 suggested humanity would eventually divide into two species; one race, tall, athletic and attractive, and the other squat, ‘dim-witted’ and ugly.

‘Evolutionary theorist Oliver Curry of the London School of Economics expects a genetic upper class and a dim-witted underclass to emerge.

The human race would peak in the year 3000, he said – before a decline due to dependence on technology.

People would become choosier about their sexual partners, causing humanity to divide into sub-species, he added.’

Is this a far cry (albeit in reverse) from evolutionary theorist Stan Gooch’s ideas about our origins? In fact, the descriptions used in the BBC piece could quite easily be of Cro-Magnon and Neanderthal man: The tall, athletic, ‘intelligent’ and attractive (to whom?) Homo Sapiens, and the short, dark, cave-dwelling Neanderthals, ancient foes still alive in the breast of one species, constantly at war with itself, both mentally and socially.

Gooch maintained that the final solution to the internal tug-o-war created by our hybridization would be genetic manipulation of the species. Through technology we would discover a way to eradicate our dual nature,  to divide Dr Jeckle from Mr Hyde once and for all. In some ways it would be the end of the humanity we know, but perhaps in other ways, it would be a fresh start. Without the constant battle between Ego and Self perhaps we could end the thousands of years of senseless warfare and enforced partition that have blighted the books of history since our time begun.

The multiple personalities of Billy Milligan

by 5ocietyx

An interesting case of multiple personality disorder from the 1970’s in Ohio, USA. Billy had compartmentalised his emotional and physical experiences into a number of ‘experts’, in order to process the world around him.

‘According to the definitive book on this strange case, The Minds of Billy Milligan, doctors and prosecutors were able to ascertain the existence of 24 distinct personalities, or “alters,” from a variety of social and cultural backgrounds, and even ages. Ten of them were considered acceptable to both Billy and the two most dominant alters, while 14 had been deemed “undesirable” and repressed, not to be discovered until after his trial, along with some insight into the choosing of the alter that would have “the spot,” or the most command of Billy’s body at any given time.’

Stan Gooch – ‘Creatures from Inner Space’

by 5ocietyx

Taken from chapter 16 – The Natural History of Psychics

‘The foregoing material, and indeed the whole of this book, exposes as complete nonsense the standard scientific view of dreams as some kind of poisonous or incoherent by-product of normal consciousness. The recently published and typical views of Francis Crick, an establishment scientist and Nobel Prize winner, are especially pathetic. He considers dreams to be a process whereby useless mental material picked up during the day is disposed of by the brain. He writes in conclusion: ‘the practice of remembering dreams should be discouraged’. How well this statement reveals the desperate, frozen paranoia of the western scientist towards dreams and the unconscious generally. In this area modern science can justifiably be said to be both repressive and fascist – that is, psychologically disturbed and politically despicable. It was, essentially, this same attitude which led to the burning and torturing of so many unfortunate wretches who dared in former times to proclaim the validity of our human ‘secret life’.

Third-Eye Symbolism of the Pinecone

The gradual unfolding of the pinecone is symbolic of the gradual expansion of consciousness
