"We're focusing on persistent surveillance"
—Jonathan How, MIT Black Helicopter engineer
The UAV SWARM Health Management Project aims to imbue protosentient nanobiotechnological helicopters with a hive mind, allowing groups of them to operate as "an intelligent airborne fleet that requires little human supervision". The technology monitors the health of the quasi-lifeforms and manages their collective consciousness so the swarms can adapt to changing environments.
While the version that MIT is showing to the public uses purely mechanical quadracopters networked to separate PCs, clearly the goal is to integrate the technology into actual nanobiotechnological Black Helicopters so they can swarm autonomously. These press releases are merely an attempt to condition our acceptance of inevitable Black Helicopter swarming in our neighborhoods.
Paranoid analysts theorize that eventually this same technology will allow a swarm of Microscopic Black Helicopters to coalesce into a fluid colonial body known as a Metamorphic Ooze Being (MOB). Black Helicopter MOBs will be able to shapeshift into any form, including humanoid, in order to infiltrate paranoid communities.
Although the individual helicopter cells would be black, by controlling the reflective interference of light on a nanometer scale with their tiny rotor props in a manner similar to the scales on butterfly wings, MOBs would be able to make themselves appear to be any combination of colors, thereby rendering their camouflage visually undetectable. They would make Simulacrum androids as we know them obsolete.
Indeed, some suspect that MOBs are already among us, disguising themselves as children to gain our trust. Sightings of so-called Black Eyed Kids (BEKs) started in 1996 when journalist Brian Bethel reported that two strange children with completely black eyes approached him in a parking lot and tried to get him to drive them home. Similar BEK sightings followed, almost always involving the children trying to get invited into someone's home. This pathologic need to be invited would suggest they seek human acceptance as part of their infiltration programming. The MOB theory of BEK origins doesn't explain why their eyes would remain characteristically uncamouflaged -- unless BEKs merely represent a malfunctioning tip of a mountain of perfectly camouflaged ooze beings in our midsts.
However, this unsettling possibility is a minority view; the more accepted explanation for BEKs in the paranoid community is that they are otherwise normal kids with massive Parasitic Black Helicopter infections. When children with insufficient exposure to natural allergens are inoculated with Black Helicopter seed crystals by NWO agents, BH reproduction can overwhelm the immune response, causing a thin, black coating of helicopters to form over the entire nervous system, including the eyes.
Whatever the case, Black Helicopter swarms are coming. Invest in swatters.
