Secrets from Above

Gathering top-secret military information has moved far beyond the classic spying techniques. The daring spy of the past is now replaced by sophisticated devices that endanger no one, can reach anywhere and can instantly extract current and reliable information.

The Washington Post reports that the CIA now uses micro-UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) the size of a pizza tray to locate insurgents in Pakistan. The Pentagon is currently working on Clandestine Tagging, Tracking and Locating Initiative (CTTL) that will use technologies such as marking individuals with invisible biological dyes or mechanical sensors;  these could be observed or monitored from a distance. Another technique involves capturing an individual's thermal “fingerprint” – the unique rays given off by each person's body heat – and following the person by use of aircraft with infrared sensors.

Perhaps the most advanced tagging concept is “smart dust,” clouds of “motes,” tiny micro-electromechanical sensors that can attach themselves to people or vehicles. Thousands of these sensors would be scattered at a time to increase the chance of at least one of them reaching its target. These sensors, the size of a grain of rice, would then send out signals to report on the location of the individual thus marked.

This trend, of using ever-more sophisticated tracking devices that no one can escape, from the Taliban fighter in his cave to the President of the United States, of everyone knowing everything about everyone, is part of a process coordinated from Above. There are Divine secrets hidden within creation, and very soon they will be revealed in full glory, to be recognized and identified by everyone.

For the past 250 years, the teachings of Chassidism have been disseminated throughout the world for this purpose, sometimes in hostile areas (as in the history of Chabad in the former Soviet Union). The results are now apparent to everyone – the inner teachings of Torah have reached every area of the world, in both a physical and spiritual sense. The fields of therapy, sociology, psychology and philosophy are now permeated with concepts that have their root in Chassidic thought.

True, the popularizers of these concepts do not necessarily recognize or acknowledge their debt to Chassidic philosophy, but that doesn't change the reality, that G-dly concepts are percolating throughout our modern day social and intellectual culture. This revelation will be complete in the time of the final Redemption, when we will witness the fulfillment of the prophecy of Isaiah, "And the world will be filled with knowledge of G-d, like water covers the ocean bed."
