Well, could there be any doubt? Brilliant scientists are on the verge of perfecting the technology to make objects (including men) invisible.
I had first heard about the work that was being conducted in this technology when I worked up in Oak Ridge (and no, I was NOT a scientist).
At that time, work with Nano tech was really just heating up, and there will be many, many great advances that will result in the future.
As a side note, I had also read about advanced optics that would/could be used to achieve this “invisibility” (it is not real invisibility as you could not stick your hand through somebody, or see Koolaide pouring down their gulletts like in the movies – it only gives the appearance of true invisibility, which in my definition is being there, but not being there).
They work on a similar principle, but instead of bending light, they will actually have cameras on your back that take video of what is behind you, and then display that video on tiny LCD screens that hang down in front of you like a sniper’s Ghillie Suit. If you are unfamiliar with that, it looks kinda like “Swamp Thing”, or a fellow who has been swimming through seaweed and got it all over him. It is used to make the sniper blend in to his surroundings, which is essentially what is desired with the invisibility technology.
Now what does all this have to do with politics?
Well, I’m beginning to see a need to become invisible once the fascio-socialist sociopaths take office.
Just like the storm-troopers who invaded Europe with Hitler’s vision of what a wonderful world it would be under Aryan (not Arian) domination, I sense that the actors and actresses, the libertines and terrorists (and, lest we forget, terrorist sympathizers [1, 2, 3] ) on the left are most assuredly rising in their power, and their influence (and as citizens of the world [1, 2, 3]).
So, you see, invisibility becomes a very important tool from this perspective.
Think Anne Frank here.
Imagine further what a useful tool it would have been to those Russians who “disappeared in the night”; like the new technology, they did not “really” disappear either. But given a little time for decay, you could stick your hand right through their rib cage.
Think about it, though. Had they had this technology, they could have “virtually” disappeared and perhaps avoided their skeletal fate.
It does seem extreme.
I mean, come on, it is America after all. Land of the free, and home of the brave.
Stuff like this couldn’t happen here.
I would imagine there were Germans who said the same thing when General Eisenhower gave them the grand tour of the death camps as our soldiers worked to clean them up. “Surely, this did not happen here“.
It is disturbing to the utmost degree when I witness images of Citizen Obama overseas kissing up to the Europeans.
Honestly, tell me the difference between the following sets of imagery?
He is supposed to be representing us.
I suppose it is part and parcel of this attitude we have in our country today…it is elitist to the nth degree, and all too close to the same sort of intellectual and moral superiority that I believe was a tell-tale sign of the thought processes of the Nazi as he (it) was coming into its own.
We live in a nation now that is sharply divided. It is divided not along political lines as the media would like to portray, but rather, it is divided between those who believe they live in some pristine place from which they “flyover” the rest of us.
They are in an ivory tower, and they while away their hours hob-nobbing with actors and foreigners, and they really don’t give a damn about all of us down here in “flyover country”.
So, I say to the scientist, “bring on the invisibility”…from what I can tell through my looking glass, we are all going to need it (depending on who gets elected, anyway).
