Situation Report – Operation Buddha
( #SitRep   – #OPBuddha  )
0845 hrs – 0945 hrs, 28th Feb’ 2015 

This Op is dedicated to all the awesomeness we witnessed in the world of ingress.

India has always played a crucial role, supporting global MU score, may it from either faction. Our worthy opponents Resistance have awed us many times with their awesome coordination on field, during anomaly and during artifacts. We were inspired by their team spirit, mixed it with our strategization skills and set ourselves to achieve a feat, previously unthinkable of.

As a TL; DR, here are the quick stats:
Total Mind Units Captured: 17.5 BMU (14BMU within Check Point)
Total Number of Layers (established): 91 (83 across Check Point)
Total Number of Links (as per plan): 207
Total Execution Time: 50min (40min within Check Point)
Total Portal Count: 105
Preparation Time: 7 months
Agents Involved: 90
Cities Involved: 14
Anchor Cities: 7
VRLA Used: 0

It doesn’t matter which color you wear, if you’ve been around in the world of Ingress, these numbers are bound to strike you with shock and awe. For all the right reasons - it was no small a deal.

The single most impressive mind unit operation till 27th February, 2015 was OP BudDhi: , with it’s 5.3BMU (5.9BMU globally). Closely followed by the recent worldwide resistance op, Unight16  - which managed to capture a staggering 4.7BMU globally, along with their other achivements to mobilize agents.

These numbers used to be held high with much respect and inspiration for a long time now. But, Enlightened India had been planning to set the bar a bit higher. Almost 3x as much as its own past glory. A goal, that’s not only mind-numbingly complex & spine-breakingly hectic - for most, it’s on the line of a moonshot or lunacy.

The Conception & Planning:
Back in early September, some inspired agents set themselves to break the previous world record of Operation BudDhi by capturing even more Mind Units, calling it the “Bigger Op”. The draft plan was to include Delhi, Bangalore & then newly enlightened city Kolkata as the main anchors.

With time, dedication, availability of keys, multiple iterations by incredible planners with experience from Op Buddhi - that plan eventually became Operation Buddha.

Agent Sheldor & Djasdak went down their memory lane - with an incredible story to tell, with far more details. You’re encouraged to find their Memoire CoSitReps from the links below.

OP Execution:

Early in the Morning, agents from all cities prepare up to the tasks they were delegated to. Forming teams, learning the execution strategies, or to be on time for the cross-link takedowns.

The OP had a total of 14 phases, each with substantial amount of details to follow, in very specific order, within a very short amount of time.

By 7:30am, all local teams are briefed, tasks & keys delegated & execution phases explained.

By 8:00am, agents are all in position, cross-link take down team starts their job after getting the go from the Op Control team. Minor hiccups there, but were managed skillfully. Nothing unplanned for.

At 8:50am, Delhi team is given the GO to start linking. Delhi, Kolkata, Rourkela & Hyderabad links start coming in. Minutes after, the Hyderabad team starts layering on top of the base links.

From 9:00-9:20am, control moved to Bangalore. Starting with Bagepalli (~100km North of Bangalore) and then to Whitefield (North-East end of Bangalore). The Bagepalli team faced mild network issues, taking rather longer for the fields to go up. Quickly after, with an astounding average of 5 links per minute (in proper order, synced and ack’d between teams and the control), Whitefield teams start linking. Everything went smoother than imagined, with a little Just-In-Time change in link order.

Meanwhile, some cross-links start appearing in Tirupati. XLink Control Master takes over and local resident agent takes down those xlinks in a very tight ETA. This is all while the tens of links going out, and is being managed in parallel.

Around 9:25am, Kolkata team starts linking to Coimbatore - with longest of links and making the highest MU layers. But were only able to do half the job within time - East Kolkata portals yet to be linked, with agents waiting for their turns.

9:30am, Checkpoint is Reached!

But without any hitch, agents complete their respective linking orders & fields. MU gathered contributes to the OP, though not to the checkpoint - but that’s okay!

Most agents weren’t aware of the full picture of the OP. Especially, because it was still under scrutiny even the night before. Which helped a huge deal. Because once agents saw the full picture of the complexity involved and started realizing how big an OP it was - it’s simply appeared scary. The appreciation & respect for the Planning & Control teams’ dedication instantly became paramount.

Oh... that, and the laggy scanner!

Wrapping Up:
As you must have imagined, 7 months of planning, preparation & execution is not a small tale to tell. Not that all the parts are equally interesting to everyone. Hence, we’ve planned to dive into the details with the help of CoSitReps. Those Companion Situation Reports will go deeper into the specifics that they will discuss & are a massive gold mine of information. This one, however, is the bootstrapping page - to be shared, to be bookmarked, to get back to and to be inspired.
Special mention of Siddharth, Rourkela, JSR, Kolkata key transfers to all cities was handled by him, also he was a key coordinator for all the harvesting and key transfers, a planner and most importantly our moral booster. 

Post Script:
There has been concerns regarding this OP may have been the effect of the new Illuminator badges. It is simply not the case. The OP has been in the pipeline for a long time now (i.e. wasn’t planned/prepped with Illuminator badges in mind). Secondly, most of the participating agents had their Onyx Illuminator already; the ones who got Onyx while in the OP, are marked with a * in the agent listing. The average MU collected per agent, for the participating agents, were more than 100 Million MU, with agents 1.5+ Billion MU captured topping the chart (@cyanokeet).

Fun Trivia:
 - Once cities were finalised, there were 17 version of layering plans, the maximum being 112 layers and minimum being 89.
 - Rourkela and Bangalore were the common anchor cities in both Op BudDhi and Op Buddha.
 - The Harvesting of Rourkela keys was done by an L2 agent Anuj & happens to be the first set of keys to be farmed for the OP.
 - The Op was supposed to happen long time back, but then artifact hit Delhi and agent burnout derailed it.
 - Only one layer of the full set between, Coimbatore, Kolkata & Delhi, was done before checkpoint. We missed 2.5B MU before checkpoint due to that.
 - Indigenously developed tools were used to describe, validate and confirm layering plans.
 - Cross-link team accommodated many last day changes to help all the crosslinks to go down in one shot!

Amazing! Wish I could have been there.   #Ingress   #ActualGameplayFootage  
Back from beautiful Florence.

Where the pavements are 1 ft wide, the street cleaners are faster than the taxis, and your GPS is taking your actual position into consideration as a rough guideline.

Where a snack is 5 times the price of a coffee, you can "buy selfie?" on every corner, everything is "vecchio", and absolutely everyone is called Giacomo.

Oh and regarding #Ingress  , here are some rough statistics:

Uniques: 1350/800 (visited/captured)
Missions completed: 100
Kilometers walked: 150
Body mass lost: 5 kg

My thanks go out to ferocious +Mark Byers , who has been absolutely merciless doing missions.

Thanks and respect to all agents attending, in the field, on the Intel, in the CCs. But most of all to the amazing +Karen Thorpe .

Big shoutouts to +Robertt Bertton , +Steve Djadoenath , +Dion Segijn - hope to see you again soon.

+Gabriele Bertini and +Sandro Limaj - decoding skills know no faction animosities.

And finally huge thanks for the stunning work of +Anne Beuttenmüller , +Matilde Tusberti , and all other local and non-local organizers, you were making my trip a wholly awesome experience.

See you all around.

Awesome turnout in Atlanta for #Ingress #Shonin.
If you were in Atlanta, mind helping me tag people? I need help tagging. I can't find everyone who was there Saturday. I only know usernames vs google req actual names.

Theres also a link to the FB album in the description too.

It's a beautiful place and there's many portals in temples, but it's often difficult to receive data...
Don't forget to make my mission at the Phnom Penh Royal Palace before living Cambodia, a great place to visit too!

#DarsanaPoint  approaching....
How Cognitive Science will Complete Physics.

There is a little known paradox, an irony perhaps, at the heart of our idea of the physical universe.

There is no 'material' or 'particulate' nature in the universe.

That is, that the apparent particulate and 'solid' nature of physical objects in the universe is an illusion. An illusion created by the signalling of our brains.

Everything that is understood in physics, comes from a basis of observation. Observation, that began without an understanding of neuroscience and cognition. Here is an update;

- Sensory organs in our bodies, energy sensitive cells and neurons, convert wave-energy signals from the outside world into 'binary' like neural impulses called 'action potentials'.

The fact that objects in reality look solid, with definitive form, is the effect of our brains converting wave signals into percepts. Indeed, even sophisticated measurement devices created by scientists also have this signal-conversion quality.

In the universe outside of our minds and brains, there is no such thing as form. No such thing as a particle. Instead, there are fields of energy potential that move relative to each other. Fields of energy with different properties.

What are properties in physics?

- Properties are such things as 'mass' and 'electrical charge'.

- They describe qualitative states in dynamic systems; that is perceptual features that are communicable and representable in the mind of a conscious observer.

It is said, that within the laws of physics there is nothing to suggest that time should flow in a linear direction. The implication being, that mathematically at least, causation could flow both forwards and backwards (perhaps even sideways). This however is in all likelihood due to an oversight that permeates throughout all science;

The effect of consciousness, mind, 'the subjective' is deliberately ruled out of theoretical understandings of the natural universe.

Such a 'black spot' within our understandings of the natural world, whilst historically understandable, is quite a strange one. Everything that a human knows, understands, and observes emanates directly from consciousness and perception. It is an inalienable first principle factor in everything that humans do. Further, it is becoming increasingly evident that consciousness, and observation, have tangible effects on the appearance and occurrences of the natural world. This is well demonstrated in the 'double slit experiments' and other observer effects found in quantum physics (e.g., electrons despite being a field of potential, appear at the exact place they are looked for).

Last year, I proposed that physical and mathematical understandings of nature would be more complete, and comprehensive, if consciousness itself is considered as a property of a physical system; living physical systems.

Consciousness and awareness, is most obviously considered a property related to the qualities of change and time.

Neurons cease to signal if there is no change in the input stimulus. If things aren't changing, a person loses awareness and consciousness of those things. Consciousness is, after-all, an ongoing experience of change.

The physical property of consciousness within a physical system, means that time and directional causality exist for that system.

The brain, and consciousness, is selective in what it processes and represents in perception. This selectivity, is most likely related to the response affordances of the environment, relative to the capabilities of a conscious system to effect change. As such, consciousness is defined by the response, change, and behavioural capabilities of the physical system that has conscious property.

If a thing doesn't afford change within our neural networks, or the affordance to be changed by conscious action, to consciousness at least, it is as if it doesn't exist.

So what is consciousness?

Consciousness is the property that arises when there is a range of affordances for change due to the interaction of physical systems; the property that underlies the experience of time and causative flow; if things could go more than one way due to a systems action, consciousness arises as the 'decider' of the way it does go.

[Note: there are obviously gaps and holes in this definition and description; this is a tricky and complex subject to articulate. So please consider this a work in progress!]
