Don't have to go anywhere near that far before the gubernment wants to have a talk with you and work will suddenly go dark to the rest of the world. …. asdf Posted Friday 2nd August 2013 23:55 GMT
Methinks, asdf, there be a number of problems which would really be many new leading opportunities for those and/or that in the field to resolve and share if they wish, and/or just exploit in the vast stealthy darkness of mass ignorance and arrogance for personal enrichment and absolutely fabulous reward, should one have cracked such as is spoken of here on this thread and would be also an enigmatic quantum [qubit*] conundrum and government intelligence service providers nightmare regarding the processing of information which be hoovered up covertly and clandestinely but which in Great IntelAIgent Games plays in reality and virtual reality be deliberately specifically provided for discovery to lead both prime and sub-prime operating systems in a completely novel and quite alien direction beyond any traditional conventional established command and control, with not the least of those problems and/or opportunities being that governments would be no where near intelligent enough to understand the dilemma which would be collapsing their systems remotely from virtual spaces afar, and thus would engagement with them through a knock at the door and a chat be quite unlikely, even if one would be leaving them a clear enough trail and tales to follow with direct communications with their more widely known by the public, security and secret intelligence services.
However, big money making businesses which work in the shadows and venture into the dark side may be a different kettle of fish to spear phish and have a cosy chat with.
And all of the above may or may not have been thoroughly tested and proven, not by theoretical experiment but through heretical experience, and that would make it exponentially considerably more valuable proprietary private intellectual property which be more suited and destined to remain in pirate and renegade domains and right dodgy royal regimes rather than entering the public education space.

Ok .... gotta dash, there's a knock at the door. Speak to y'all later. Have a nice day and weekend.
