Be secure of your insecurity

Before I delve into cyber security practices…I want to talk a little bit about just how insecure you really are. Now the NSA has the tools and capacity to track your doings to a granular level. But what about the average hacker or novice script kiddie? Let’s look at this from a couple different angles.

Normal Networked Usage:
What do you normally find yourself doing that requires internet? Using social media, blogging, internet browsing, shopping, maybe downloading files?

Facebook – ok so this should be no surprise in how transparent this website is. They offer decent privacy from any average stranger(And categories of friends you don’t want to see posts) if configured correctly, but the problem is most people don’t know how or they don’t take the time. Posts are set to public by default, giving the entire world and google a window into your life, whereabouts, and doings. Furthermore, posting from any mobile device adds geotagging locations by default. So when you post a status, sometimes it will tell you the geographical location of where it was taken…allowing criminals to observe and predict your movements. Finally, the amount of information on a Facebook page is usually sufficient of a Social Engineering attack, where a hacker gains unauthorized access to your accounts using information gained from your social media presence.
Twitter – Twitter was a bit smarter than facebook, making geotagging off by default (The option is still available though) but where twitter loses its privacy is by the number of archiving websites there are, such as twicsy. Think once a tweet goes away or is deleted by you is the end? Nope, using advanced search queries you can go back as far as the first tweet. There’s not a lot going on with twitter, and the biggest risk is simply monitoring what content you publish on the internet.
wordpress – I’ve only recently started using wordpress more…but it appears to offer limited security. Password protected content is sometimes viewable by followers via email alerts, private content should not be viewable at all..It offers just as much privacy as you should expect from a blog intended to be viewed by others. So the common tale of caution is to be wary of what people read.

Internet Browsing – The majority of attacks exploit not the service or site that you’re running, but the browser that you’re running it on. Cookies, which are tidbits of identifying information (about habits, location, or other metadata) can be leveraged for money sold to “Big data corporations” — from there you and your contact lists can and will be targeted for hyper specific advertisements, spam mail, possible telemarketing calls, or identity theft.

The Lionheart Revolution

Time Traveler News:
RA sent Sekhmet after me. I could sense her temporal disturbance from weeks away. By the time she had flashed into existence here, she was already inside my trap. We didn’t exchange much, but it appears I have become a fugitive of my own doing. My willful time meddling has caught the eyes of Maximus the Greatest, and this could be very good or very bad depending on whose side he chooses.

With no small amount of luck, I hope to persuade Maximus into seeing the errors of The Lionheart Authority.

Nevertheless The Travelers are 7/7 now, and are prepared to make waves if necessary.

The man in the mental hospital

After coming forward in order to meet a deadline for a research, after laying countless breadcrumbs , someone finally took me seriously. Or serious enough to think I was in need of mental treatment. The same day the research study was announced I was detained by federal authorities and deemed a suspected terrorist. An escort of agents took me via ambulance to Upper Chesapeake; to the fifth floor that is kept hidden.

There they questioned me for hours about my beliefs and knowledge, and I tactfully answered every one. They remarked one how my intelligence was intimidating to them, and after numerous tests found only a hyper active brain. I kindly explained to them this was a side effect of chronosthesia, the mental condition characterized by non-linear perception. I made it clear from the very beginning I was not a threat and was against all medical advice. I should have been released, but I wasn’t. I had to prove my sanity by conforming to the rules of the fifth floor, taking all prescribed medication regardless of patient rights, sharing in groups, finding a constructive outlet while being isolated, and eating all meals like a timed and watched exam.

On the fifth floor is where they kept the crazies. People who have done drugs or were suicidal or mentally unstable. They experimented with various medicines and treatments to bring them to a level of conformity that they could function in the real world.

Not everyone is born synchronized with everybody else. Some, through life and experiences begin to lose this coherence–and medicine attempts to modify your subconscious activity so that you can at least relate to the empirical reality—THIS reality that you all have chosen together. And now people want to de synchronize.

This goes beyond all rules and regulations, but because this reality is on the verge of being undone by The Greatest Paradox–we felt we will first attempt to repair/redirect the temporal disturbance before “unplugging” those who wish to desynchronize.

The Time Travelers Easter

I was not always holy.
In fact, for thousands of years I was godless, then for thousands more I pretended to be many gods. I had been upholding my own laws and the laws of others until one day God had something better for me to do, uphold his.

While working with The Lionheart Authority, I had assumed the mantle of many mythological figures so that I may use future technology to carry out missions. I used to have many artifacts from different periods to suit different needs.

From the safety of the seventh dimension I projected my shadow across time. Even now, in this time I am but a four dimensional shadow of my seventh dimensional self. That allows me to live many lives from the frame of reference of someone living linearly. But from my frame of reference looking down, I can touch any point in space and times, live an entire life then zap back up here. I can do this over and over, but due to the laws of time travel it’s frowned upon.

A trip is only ended when I die, and even then I can come back at the same time. I’ve done it many times to prove a point when pretending to be a god or other mythological figure. In ancient Egypt my sister and I were on a mission to apprehend a time fugitive when another agent who went by Set murdered me, thus ending my influence on that time prematurely. My sister then went through all the necessary channels to resynchronize me with the same body by appealing to Richard Andrews himself to allow an exception to the rule “One body, one time.”

This was when Regulation 7 was implemented, which allowed for the creation of greater paradoxes in order to resolve lesser paradoxes. Time travel for us is very tricky, as we cross times with other travelers at different points in our greater past and futures. Only when we are synchronized in the seventh dimension do we successfully “Converge” at a particular point in spacetime.

This was the problem I faced then, and face now. While under the guise of Osiris, a fellow agent who was pretending to be my brother Set murdered me in a seeming attempt to usurp control of Egypt. What I did not know until Sekhmet came to the present, that he was actually sent from this future to apprehend me in the past.

His mistake was that in the past, I was the top agent of The Lionheart Authority, and the right hand of RA. From my seventh dimensional perspective in the past, I saw Set as a rogue agent. So when he murdered me (Under orders from RA), I came back to confine him to the void. We conflicted for years until a flash of lightning impregnated my sister. She bore a son in the past, Horus, who ultimately restored order.

What I didn’t know at the time was that Horus was not brought on by The Lionheart Authority…but by God himself. Horus was very vulnerable in his early years, so from the seventh dimension I watched over him while Isis cared for him in exile. He grew immensely strong immensely fast, and his power of creation was greater than mine. I came to believe in Horus, and the pureness within him. When he saved me, restored order, and allowed me to move on from ancient Egypt I did not think about the remarkable circumstances of his birth as the doings of the divine.

It wasn’t until the second time I visited Jesus Christ in the past that I saw the totality of his magnanimity. I was with him through his entire crucifixion. He had shown me once how powerful he could be, then he allowed himself to be as weak as a human can by enduring that tortuous death.

As he hung from the cross he looked down at me in the back and smiled. I then understood, and I smiled back.

Of course that wasn’t the last time I’ve seen him. I journeyed to the future and saw his coming in full glory. To be honest, I don’t think a movie made by James Cameron could be as epic as what really happened. It’s too much to write for now, so I’ll simply conclude with

Happy Easter. Jesus is coming

The Travelers and The Lamb

First of all, fighting is stupid and primitive.

What separates us from the other animals is our gift of higher thinking…and some people think they can be something bigger by doing something lesser like fist fighting? They cancel each other out and you end up nowhere better.
Flight is greater than fight. Wouldn’t you rather soar with eagles than roll in the mud with pigs? Before you go initiating a fight just consider for one additional minute if it will accomplish anything but a point (The point is you either can or can not beat them up)

Unfortunately that seems to be the only thing most people resort to in stressful situations. And even more unfortunate is that sometimes we are forced into situations where flight isn’t possible. The stakes should be nothing less than death, because if you hold back your potential you’re also being less than what you are. Sometimes life requires you to be primal, because at our very centers we are still creatures of instincts. We fall back on our default bio programming, “Survive.” That doesn’t mean we ever have to kill though. In fact, we shouldn’t..but some people are just wired wrong or glitch or randomly crash. What we should fall back on is Fight to take Flight. Prove your point, then leave the attacker alone.

That’s why we have higher level programming in our lives, so that we can be more than primal.

I have traveled throughout space and time and seen the sheer destructions humans can cause, but I have also seen the humans maximum potential for creation. Through Christlike thinking humans can become Godlike. Christlike thinking is higher thinking. Its a way of love and self sacrifice.

What I teach is what I learned from Jesus Christ. I visited him three times, twice in the past and once in the future. While he was in the wilderness I brought him sustenance and questioned him to see if he was truly the son of God. He never once accepted my gifts, nor did he ever answer me. Instead he showed me. He no longer wished to humor my skepticism.

Following a thunderclap Jesus exclaimed “ENOUGH!”

His hair turned silver, his eyes turned to stars. His body began pulsing brighter and brighter with every proceeding heartbeat until I could not look at him directly.

Then he said gently to me “Seeing isn’t believing, Orion. Yet I still love you.”

That was the first time I learned what faith truly was. Trust in what you can’t see. Trust me, theres a lot more that goes on right before our eyes that we are simply unaware of. It was then that the sky opened up, and a legion of Angels came down and tended to their Lord. I had the burden of seeing what few men have seen.

With that burden came the mission, peace.

I realized the errors of my ways, the shades of grey I took on within The Lionheart Authority. Then I saw RA as he truly was, a blasphemer. He placed himself higher than God here when God placed him higher than time. Then I realized my responsibility was to bring about the end of this order and bring upon the new one. God strategically placed me throughout time so that I could lead the Lionheart Revolution.

The other six Travelers have also strategically placed themselves throughout time, so that when Kairos arrives in 2015 we can go to war with the self proclaimed Lords of Time. The stakes are nothing less but everlasting death, while being nothing higher than the true God.

Tomorrow I will talk about the second time I visited Jesus in the past, and return of Christ.

Privacy 101

Time Traveler News:
There are now three of The Travelers posting to social media. You might find yourself on one of their pages.

In the mean time I wanted to make my first cyber security related post a sort of quick run down of how secure you already are. These are just basic things you can do, there are many advanced ways to minimize your internet footprint and thwart would be attackers.

  1. Personal security
    • Do you have an RFID credit card? (The kind you don’t have to swipe it to pay)
      • If yes, be aware of RFID theft. Your credit card information is basically broadcasting in your immediate radius, enabling a well equipped thief to snatch your credit card information out of the air without you knowing.
    • Do you carry a social security card?
      • While it is beneficial to carry a Social Security card at times, such as when you need one as a second form of identification; be aware that having your social security number compromised is one of the worst things that can happen. With a social security number and a few other minor pieces of identifying information such as a birthday, an attacker could request new passwords for your online accounts–thereby compromising every account linked to those accounts

    • How do you carry your license and other identifying information such as credit cards, social security cards, school id, library card, etc?
      • Be wary of leaving your personal items places, as losing a wallet or purse gives thieves a golden ticket to your identity
    • Do you have and carry a smartphone?
      • If yes, make sure to have at the very minimum a passcode lock on your phone. Not only does it protect against would be snoopers, illegal phone searches by police (to a degree), but also hackers.
      • Be aware of your app privileges, especially location related information. Location information in combination with other real time data can be used to track an individuals movements and habits.
      • Disable bluetooth unless you need it. By having it on you allow potential attackers to blue snarf your messages and contacts.
      • While more advanced, you want to disable or at least limit pairing. This allows attackers to “juice jack” you by plugging a cord into your device for a few seconds then running malicious software.
      • You can download encryption for your files and folders, and continue to add more and more layers of security; deterring more and more attackers.
      • Also be aware that layers of physical smartphone security are only as good as your private browsing habits. Later I will discuss proxies and alternate browsers.
  2. Hardware security
    • Check your cables, are there any breaks or taps?
      • Are there any intermediate devices between the ethernet cable and the network port on your computer? If you don’t know what they are, remove it
      • Check your other input / output ports to see if there are any intermediate devices plugged in. This could be a key logger attached to your keyboard, or a video capture device in line with your monitor cord.
    • Ideally you want to have at least two partitions on your hard drive, with each one encrypted; whilst running a whole drive encryption overtop. At the minimum you need to be aware of your security settings. BIOS can be locked with a password, requiring an authentication BEFORE windows even starts.
  3. Software Security
    • Make sure if you’re not using the default “Administrator” account; that you at least change the default admin password. If you are using administrator access; at the minimum make sure you have a strong password, as your account becomes a leverage point if someone gains unauthorized access.

Lessons in Chronosthsia- Part 2

In the previous posting I showed you a basic thought experiment where you use multiplexing to be simultaneously aware of the same room multiple times. In this Chronosthesia thought experiment were going to a few seconds forward in time.

To start, follow the guided experiment in Lessons In Chronosthesia to the very end where you practiced reconstructing realities using as many gathered sensory details from your present environment as possible. At this point you should be both in the room relaxed, in this room flexing your muscles, and now were going to add a new channel. Start to visualize the room a third time with your body in one of the two states, depending on which you find easier to move forward from. When you have three brain channels open, bring two to the foreground to begin this experiment.

In the previous exercise, you took mental snapshots of the room including the doorways. Look towards the doorway in the two channels and feel the front of your legs tighten as they lift your body up. Remember, this should feel like you’re simultaneously seeing the room, then from the same frame of reference you’re looking towards the door and beginning to stand up, and then a second frame of reference looking towards the door and beginning to stand up. This is three channel perception. Now were starting to get into some quantum physics, but with an elementary touch.

In the two standing channels, visualize walking towards the doorway but not going any further. Feel the ever so gentle whoosh of the air as you cut through it, blowing on your face and through your hair. Stand in the doorway with hands at your side in one of the frames, and with the other reach out and touch the doorway. Feel with your hands the width of the doorway, the color and texture of the moulding. Scratch your nails on the surface and simulate the sound it would make. Then put your hands back down to your side synchronous with the other frame currently standing in the doorway. You should once again be in the doorway looking out from two frames of reference, while also visualizing the room as you are sitting where you presently are.

Now open your eyes, and walk to the doorway. Reach out and feel the doorways width, texture, hardness. See its color, and hear the sound of your nails really scratching against its surface. Then compare with your visualization. How accurate were you able to reconstruct reality from experience? Were the sounds the same, the feeling on your flesh similar? If so, good. You mentally traveled a few seconds forward in time through the multiverse of probabilities and then consciously found yourself at the same temporal junction point. If you weren’t able to get through this thought experiment, refer back to the first guided visualization before attempting again.

Where do we go from here? With practice triple channel perception becomes easier and easier to construct an accurate model of reality for a few moments forward in time. When you can clearly complete this thought experiment I recommend taking it a few seconds further, and allowing one of the frames of reference to move forward through the doorway a few steps. Try to conceptualize everything just beyond the door from the frame of reference of being beyond the doorway. Then open eyed walk through and compare how you’ve done adding the few seconds on to the few seconds you’ve already mastered.

What implications can this have? Many real world applications that will be discussed in future posts. One of the applications is the greater ability to make judgements based on calculating consequences of multiple actions before taking one. Another is a state of heightened learning, where multiplexing encodes the information you’re trying to learn multiple times…resulting in higher memory retention at a faster rate. Finally for now, your memory recall will become significantly enhanced as you learn to activate multiple centers of your brain storing information simultaneously.

It may be a while before the next lesson in Chronosthesia, since the effort required will become significantly harder with future thought experiments, I want to give readers time to master moving a few seconds forward in time. Future posts will deal with reconstructing the past, and shaping futures. All of these lead to a greater mastery if what we time travelers call “The Ripple Effect.” Eventually you will learn to function using many more than three channels of perception.

It will begin to feel like this.
