“Today, everything serves war. There is not one discovery which the military does not study with the aim of applying it to warfare, not one invention which they do not attempt to turn to military use.”
—Nikolai Fyodorov, “Philosophy of the Common Cause, 1891”
In a world of rapidly increasing scientific and technological innovation, much of which is conducted under the auspices of corporate and defense contracts, it is reasonable to believe that types of technologies exist which would appear to be science fiction to the average person. But in fact are quite real. Some of these technologies can affect us in ways that could make someone appear mentally disturbed. Is the fact that certain neurological or physiological conditions could be caused by some variety of exotic corporate or military technology not worth determining? Would disclosure of such technology impact the medical field or improve treatment? If such technologies were treated as “real” by the media or academia in general, what changes and protections could arise from that?

This is the latest in a series of essays concerning a concept known as History in 4D. History in 4D on one hand is an assessment of the modern information space as being overwhelmingly influenced by political, corporate and military intelligence actors who through guarded communications with the public craft a version of reality using narrative structures embedded in mass media communications. On the other hand, History in 4D is a set of heuristics for use by students, teachers, analysts and information seeking citizens as they attempt to make meaning out of the endless waves of narratives thrown at them. In total, History in 4D is a method of viewing history and current events in an effort to improve media literacy and one’s general awareness about history and how the world operates. If 2016-2018 has proven anything they have proved that the Information Age has given birth to the Age of Information Warfare and our minds are all in the crossfire.

“Published in 1937 by Vanguard Press. It is an argumentative analysis of wealth and class in the United States, and how they are leveraged for purposes of political and economic power, specifically by what the author contends is a “plutocratic circle” composed of a tightly interlinked group of 60 families.”
