The above image is a ´social network diagram´ for Francois Genoud (more on Genoud here), which can be found at NameBase.org. Similar technologies can be found throughout the internet--for example, ExxonSecrets.org has a particularly good flash version of this technology.
The diagram was inserted here because I´m postulating that spaced based satellite remote brain mapping and target tracking technology, which may or may not be part of the Pentagon and NSA´s eavesdropping program on US and citizens of other countries, utilizes such a network database in covert electronic harassment programs.
The subsequent databases resulting from NSA eavesdropping not only monitor social networks, but also track all electronic financial transactions. Another possible utilization for tracking financial transactions or obtaining bank records could also be to create a virtual, electronic debtor's prison or 'electronic harassment gulag' for citizens with a repeat history of 'bad credit' or for those who have filed for bankruptcy.
At the risk of sounding like a complete kook, I´m going to go out on a limb here and again theorize that each of the ´people´ in these network diagrams are automated ´voice recognition´ systems similar to the ones used by financial institutions for their telephone banking services--which if you haven´t noticed, are become more and more advanced everyday.
Most of the literature I´ve researched in this area refers to these apparatuses as ´man-machine systems.´ Timothy L. Thomas makes reference to a similar such system I am attempting to describe here in the Spring 1998 issue of the US Army War College Quarterly, Parameters:
An entirely new arsenal of weapons, based on devices designed to introduce subliminal messages or to alter the body's psychological and data-processing capabilities, might be used to incapacitate individuals. These weapons aim to control or alter the psyche, or to attack the various sensory and data-processing systems of the human organism. In both cases, the goal is to confuse or destroy the signals that normally keep the body in equilibrium.
...psychotronic weapons are those that act to "take away a part of the information which is stored in a man's brain. It is sent to a computer, which reworks it to the level needed for those who need to control the man, and the modified information is then reinserted into the brain." These weapons are used against the mind to induce hallucinations, sickness, mutations in human cells, "zombification," or even death.
I would also venture to guess that the Pentagon has highly advanced prototype versions of these ´voice recognition´ technologies, which are probably on the verge of becoming full fledged artificial intelligences or possibly infomorphs. An infomorph-- or simulated ´person´ or ´virtual clone´ grown inside of a computer--has been touted by the once upon a time pertinent Wired Magazine as being ´the killer app of the 21st century.´
This may yet turn out to be a prescient prediction--in more ways than one.
