If you’re still sitting there believing EVERYTHING you see on TV or on the internet or in magazines (dang! You can’t even believe that the person you’re looking at in a magazine hasn’t been altered in some way by some photo shop wizard),– If you still believe that everything you see and hear is true, then maybe this video can serve as an audio/visual smelling salt to stir you out of your media-induced coma.
Share this video with everyone you know…ESPECIALLY with those who buy into everything they see on TV!
We live in a day and age where neither seeing or hearing is necessarily believing. Computer animations, remastered digital recordings and scripted scenes in top-story sound bites and video clips or front page photos in newspaper and online publications seem so real…so believable. But the safe stance to take would be the stance of suspicion whenever anything is presented to you from the multinational or government sources.. And yes…this goes for anything on internet as well.media
Here’s what I’m getting at. Using facial capture and facial reenactment software, students at colleges are able to, in real time, create facial expressions and even insert audio to make you believe that individuals like world leaders are doing and saying things that they aren’t actually doing or saying.
This is how a Stanford website explains it, “We present a novel approach for real-time facial reenactment of a monocular target video sequence (e.g., Youtube video). The source sequence is also a monocular video stream, captured live with a commodity webcam. Our goal is to animate the facial expressions of the target video by a source actor and re-render the manipulated output video in a photo-realistic fashion.”
In other words the source (in this case a college student) projects the expressions of that student’s face upon the target, (in this case Arnold Shwarzennegger,
or here with George Bush
or in this case with Vladamir Putin and Donald Trump).
The students face is warped onto the target’s face, making him look like his mouth is opened, or that he’s laughing or making any number of facial expressions.
The Stanford website continues to explain the process.
“At run time, we track facial expressions of both source and target video using a dense photometric consistency measure. Reenactment is then achieved by fast and efficient deformation transfer between source and target. The mouth interior that best matches the re-targeted expression is retrieved from the target sequence and warped to produce an accurate fit. Finally, we convincingly re-render the synthesized target face on top of the corresponding video stream such that it seamlessly blends with the real-world illumination. We demonstrate our method in a live setup, where Youtube videos are reenacted in real time.”
Add to this the fact that in the late 90s a scientist named George Papcun, who developed a voice morphing technology, was able to, with pinpoint accuracy clone the voice of Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command. What did the cloned voice of Steiner say? “Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government.”
And this was over 17 years ago guys! There is no telling what kind of advanced technology the government has today to employ methods to further deceive the masses. And you can believe that if the government is employing these technologies…It will not be for our good.
When you combine all this technology with the obvious packaged for the masses psychological operations like Sandy Hook, the Boston bombing, the London Subway Bombing or 9/11, where such events were used to create widespread panic, and feelings of national indignation, and you see how Government puppets used the fear they created to sell the idea of a decades-long war in the middle east and legitimize an interventionist foreign policy which makes America a global bully, the scourge of the earth and a refuge for the criminal cartel of a vast network of international bankers and financeers, and you see as a result the demoralization of our culture, the removal of our individual rights and the constant plundering of our wealth by the military industrial complex, then you’ll begin to see the enormous scope of the monstrosity known as the Federal Government…and maybe…just maybe we can all wake up together, unite together and crush the beast that’s been sitting on our chest for so long.
If you want more information about voice morphing and facial capture and facial reenactment software, and some of the other things mentioned in this video. I’ve got some links for you in the description below.
Keep in mind…the price of freedom is eternal vigilance and indifference to this notion is the means by which the people will secure their own oppression. And when injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty!
