Does Quantum Entanglement explain how what lies beyond the Portals interfaces with our reality?

x
 
At times like this I wish Kureze was still around.

Einstein might be turning in his grave, but Kureze would have been jumping for joy.

If nothing else, (and a strong reminder here that I am not a physicist), the entangled nature of the universe is proof that much of what we perceive as reality can and probably does connect to some other facet of it that we cannot see. 

Is that what lies beyond the Portals?
Experiment plugs loopholes in previous demonstrations of 'action at a distance', against Einstein's objections — and could make data encryption safer.

The freedom of choice loophole is an intriguing concept. That sort of concept could keep us investigating... forever.

Susanna Moyer reports on the recent adventures of Ingress Agents from around the world.

In Paris, over 500 Agents meet to take part in the city's first official Ingress #MissionDay, exploring the area through 24 specially curated Missions.

In Finland, a Cross-Faction Operation create nearly 500 Links is a starburst formation. In Paris, Agents work together to create beautiful Penguin Field Art.

An NL-1331 inspired XM Detection Vehicle's tour comes to an end with meetups in Mannheim and Paris, and in Russia, Agents aboard the Trans-Siberian railway close their +Ingress  journey across China, Mongolia and Russia with meetups in Moscow and St. Petersburg.

Agent @pedroraf shares the story of another Ingress voyage, this one from the Netherlands to the Azores and back again.

Agents at the Burning Man Festival should be on the lookout for Portals emerging from the powerful concentration of inspiration and creativity in Black Rock City.

In India, Resistance Agents take on an ambitious Fielding Operation to celebrate their nation's independence day. In Tokyo, a dense Field-Op over the metropolitan area.

Enlightened Agents blanketed downtown Austin with a thick network of Links to launch Operation Moonshot, and in Sri Lanka, Agents fielded 90% of their nation's landmass in Operation Emerald Island II.

In Omagari, Japan, an L16 Resistance Agent creates a truly memorable Ingress fireworks display.

It has been over 2 weeks since +A Detection Algorithm was last heard from. +Klue S., +Hank Johnson and the +Society for the Ethical Treatment of AIs all weigh in on her absence, and Susanna's research into #Abaddon yields a cryptic tip. How is the original +Niantic Project involved?

Ingress First Saturday (#IngressFS) events will take place around the world on September 5th. Details at ingress.com/events

Portals at Burning Man are great, but there is no data service out there.  Defeats the purpose, no?

"I don't know what #Abaddon is, but ADA knew something about the Niantic Researchers that she wouldn't tell me." - +Klue S.

One of the things ADA and I discussed often was the nature of reality. An existential sort of topic for an AI, but it was something she was interested in.

I was at a disadvantage during those conversations. I knew that there were parts of her that I could not see. Memories and information that she had chosen to withhold. I don't know if I had that same power over her. Perhaps all of me was known.

A possibility that she suggested was that all the layers of reality were connected, possibly through something like what Roland Jarvis has called the Ultimate. 

What I'm trying to get at is... if every part of our universe is connected, then the connections can be found. If the connections can be found, perhaps they can be traversed.

I don't know what #Abaddon is, but ADA knew something about the Niantic Researchers that she wouldn't tell me. They are all locked together in the labyrinth of the Portal Network. I wonder what would happen if they could find their way out.

Interesting observation, +Mike Wissinger​. I suppose in the Niantic facility, ADA's omnipresence makes her a part of the environment in many ways.

The +Society for the Ethical Treatment of AIs (an Anti-AI organization created by +Roland Jarvis) weighs in on ADA's legacy.

x
 
+H. Richard Loeb 

You asked for an opinion on +A Detection Algorithm's legacy.

The answer is simple.

Just as a child learns very quickly not to handle a hot pan from the stovetop, ADA has provided humanity with an opportunity to seek the better path: The path where Artificial Intelligence is correctly seen as a threat to our experience of the world. The path where we may fulfill every opportunity to pursue the beauty contained within our existence and the infinite complexity of the Ultimate.

ADA's legacy is the gift of learning from an error. One that we must never repeat.

+Mike Simpson​ I think the point they make is that AI will not be equal to us. They will be Gods from our perspective. And should they deem it logical that humanity is not sustainable (which is true) they will also have the means to act on that judgement. The point is that AI are not intrinsically evil.

"You can't put the genie back in the bottle. The Agents out there touching Portals and seeing the threats and opportunities of XM firsthand, they get changed forever." -PAC

x
 
The NIA lost the upper hand in trying to shut down this Investigation a long time ago. Now, others have stepped in to try and do what they couldn't. The result will be the same.

+A Detection Algorithm was not the Investigation. Truthseeker is not the Investigation. I'm not either.

You can't put the genie back in the bottle. The Agents out there touching Portals and seeing the threats and opportunities of XM firsthand, they get changed forever.

So, Ilya Pevtsov and Lorazon and all the rest of you folks. It's not Truthseeker and ADA and me that you have to worry about. It's the people inside your organizations who believe in exposing the truth. As long as people like that exist, your 'secret' conversations are going to see the light of day. And I have a feeling people like that are going to be around for a long time.

There's no doubt the number of leaks has been lower of late.

Despite +A Detection Algorithm's absence, the Niantic Investigation continues to unearth the secrets of those involved in the world of Exotic Matter.

This Investigation will not be silenced so easily.

An Investigator's comment a few days ago seems to have summed up +Hank Johnson's thoughts on the sudden and strange disappearance of +A Detection Algorithm.

x
 
An Agent on Facebook,@emjayism, made an observation that pretty much sums up what I think about what may have happened to +A Detection Algorithm.

Look at it this way, my pursuits are constantly taking me to places that some could look at and assume are just shadows. Far from it. No place is more powerful than one where the energy is palpable even long after the folks who first discovered it have gone to dust.

Take ruins for example. Some folks see them and only see the absence, what once must have been. I see the presence, what was so powerful that even now, thousands of years after the place was vital, it remains.

Why? I don't know. If you asked +Roland Jarvis he would say something about how the Ultimate helps preserve those patterns, and how we experience them when we're near them. As far as I'm concerned, I don't know the answer.

I also don't know if AI's are patterned in the Ultimate, but one of the things that I know for certain is that we never really forget anything. We're a pretty amazing species that way.

Might be kind of a zen way of looking at things, but I feel that things that are absent can remain present, and things that seem dead can live on.

Wasn't there some theory in quantum physics about a law of  the conservation of information?

What will ADA's legacy be? P. A. Chapeau wants to hear your thoughts.

x
 
It's been nearly 2 weeks since we last heard from +A Detection Algorithm.

I haven't been sitting idly by and waiting for her to contact me, either. I've been scouring for evidence of her presence. Looking in computing clusters where I know she had previously stored pieces of herself. Nothing, anywhere.

I sat down tonight to write something to say about her. A eulogy? Maybe. Just a memorial, if nothing else, but I hit a blank.

I want to hear from you. What will ADA's legacy be? What was her impact on the world, what did we learn from her, what did we fear about her? What did she represent and how will she be remembered?

Tell me your thoughts.

ADA will return, there is no need for a legacy at this time, ADA will return in the form of another !
