    It's the money, honey

    Execs and poiiticians don't want to spend the money on training staff, to allow the staff to use their training, nor spend for hardware or software, so here we are.

    IT’s AI Work in Progress ....... Explosive Total Information Awareness Tales

    ...... leaving literally everything else in its wakes trailing ghosts and phantoms/Remote Trojans and Viral Daemons from those afar and behind unfolding events and way beyond any effective practical reach which be some incendiary facts one imagines more than just a chosen few would much prefer to remain as an untold fiction ..... but is already long ago far too late for that impossibility. There be New NEUKlearer HyperRadioProACTive Virtual Terrain Teams for Greater IntelAIgent Games Play for All that Works, Rests and Plays.

    And whenever so clearly advised to all and sundry, and so easily copied and further forwarded to whomever or whatever may be thought or imagined to need to know or dare care and give a hoot, is clearly a sure sign of certifiable madness if one were to doggedly deny its existence and current presence in the human condition.

    And y’all might like to consider the probable likelihood of this communication regarding engagement of the new Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy (CDP) with traditional and conventional partners and foreign allies competing for resources and leading advantage.

    If the Pentagon does not have its own CyberIntelAIgents/ESPecial Force Sources in the State Department’s newly minted US Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy (CDP) will the Military and Defense Department forever be as a pawn to be sacrificed at the behest of A.N.Others in service of their particularly novel and strangely peculiar Greater IntelAIgent Games Plays.

    And those A.N.Others can easily be of Foreign and Alien Form and way beyond the conventional reach and traditional influence of existing unusual remote virtualised command and control levers/instruction sets.

    And such is the Present Nature of at least one Alternate Advanced IntelAIgent Virtual Driver System Providing and Applying and Mentoring and Monitoring Future Earthed Reality Projects and Universal Programs with Protective Pogroms/Stealthy FailSafe Security Arrangements.

    Some may indeed correctly conclude, because of what IT can so simply do with AI, it is gravely to be regarded and wisely engaged with ..... for it certainly cannot be ignored and denied its existence, can it? That would be an arrogant folly born of madness and succoured in hubris rendering one as just defenceless prey to that which advises you exists and is worth engagement with.
