British Telecom, Britain's giant telecommunications enterprise,
has a long history of involvement with the intelligence
services. "Tinkerbell" is the name given to a secret unit of
official phone-tappers who once roamed the nation searching for
a socket in which to place a black jack-plug.

Targeted were wicked state enemies: the Gay Rights Movement,
Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Green activists, the liberal
Church and other equally dangerous undesirables.

Now privatized and generating a massive revenue stream of
33 billion a year, things at BT have changed. Exchange
digitilization and computerization has reduced Tinkerbell
"tappers" to a manageable and profitable number.

But links to the intelligence services are still an integral part
of the structure, and employees still sign the all encompassing
"Official Secrets Act," designed to muzzle their every word.
The mere mention to a friend of the colour of the office
carpet is still, technically, punishable by an extended term
in prison.

In a recent announcement, BT outlined it's commitment to
leading-edge communications developments, that it believes will
shoe-horn it into the new millennium. The
state-controlled-private-sector giant no longer just want your
every last penny. They now have plans to grab your Soul, too.



Nexus Magazine, Oct/Nov 96.

British scientists are developing a concept for a computer chip
which, when implanted into the skull behind the eye, will be able
to record a person's every life time thought ands sensation.

"This is the end of death," said Dr. Chris Winter of British
Telecom's artificial-life team. He predicts that within thirty
years it will be possible to relive other people's lives by
playing back their experiences on a computer. "By combining this
information with a record of a person's genes, we could recreate
a person physically, emotionally and spiritually."

Dr Winter and his team of scientists at BT's Martlesham Heath
Laboratories, near Ipswich, call the chip "the Soul Catcher."

British Telecom would not divulge how much money it is investing
in the project, but Dr. Winter said it was taking "Soul Catcher
2025" very seriously. He confessed there were profound ethical
considerations, but emphasized that BT was embarking on this
line of research so it could keep at the forefront of
communications technology.

Dr. Winter said "an implanted chip would be like an aircraft's
black box, and would enhance communications beyond current
concepts." For example, police would be able to use it to relive
an attack, rape or murder from the victims viewpoint, to help
catch the criminal... I could even play back the smells, sounds
and sights of my holidays to friends.

Other more frightening applications include downloading an older
person's experiences into a newborn baby by transplanting the

The ability to remotely interrogate audio and video signals
suggests that future "implantee's" could also be remotely
interrogated. The miniaturization of implants remains at the
forefront of technological innovation. I have seen an implant
the size of a grain of rice. I understand this is large compared
to current technology; that implants the size of a human hair
exist -- that they are injectable.

The ancillary volume of the USAF's "New World Vistas," and Metz
& Kievit's "Revolution in Military Affairs," both outline
futuristic scenario's not dissimilar -- at heart -- to BT's

Then recall that advanced military technology has a lead-time of
20-30 years. Lastly, remember that BT remains a willing servant
of the British secret state.

You figure it out.
