So I've been following P.A. Chapeau on the Niantic project and I urge any one else who has been following (Especially those in the so-called 'Resistance') to think critically, and look beyond just the surface of what he says.

The quick version. For more information see his page at nianticproject.com :

He's uncovered a mysterious operation by a shadowy government agency called 'The Niantic project'.  Throughout history extra-dimensional beings called 'Shapers' have been influencing human behavior  around 'Portals'. These portals emit an invisible particle called XM (eXotic Matter). Those sensitive to XM, typically engineers and artists, have gravitated towards XM and portals, and have built their works around them. If you've ever looked at a statue, or building and marveled at its beauty, it's probably a portal inspired by the Shapers. 

There are those of us who want to strengthen these portals. Those who are sensitive to XM are typically the smartest and most skilled of our species. We believe these are gifts from the Shapers and want to extend the gifts to all Humanity. Those of you who are 'playing' the 'game'  Ingress know that P.A. Chapeau is a member of the 'Resistance'. A group of people who believe that they are preventing harm by capturing these portals and shutting them down (or so they think).

Which brings me to my first question 

Why are the Resistance upgrading portals and setting up fields? Why the Enlightened do this is obvious, we want to strengthen the portals and increase the Shaper's influence through the fields. The Resistance, on the other hand, think portals are dangerous. Why are they capturing them, and why are they setting up fields to capture 'Mind Units' ? I've asked a few Resistance members that I've seen online and in real life. They say 'to shut them down of course'.  It just doesn't add up. Why increase the portal's energy by upgrading it if you think its dangerous? Why create fields of influence?  Why capture 'Mind Units'? Something is wrong with this

Next question: Why is P.A. Chapeau still alive? Niantic is supposedly this big super powerful government agency. It can cover up murders and has already taken out many people of interest trying to keep this information secret, yet here he is with a fancy web page documenting their actions. He is very successfully leading people to the Resistance. There are thousands of people begging for invites to this 'game' every day. (just look at +Brandon Badger 's page) All because of Chapeau .

I think I might have answers to these questions, and I'm interested to hear your version of the truth.

This is my current theory.You see, Niantic found a way to capture and control portals. They found a way to tear the power to shape minds away from the Shapers and put it solidly in their own hands. With this power: war, rebellion, opposition; it all goes away. They can shape minds to be obedient, instead of visionary. They come up with an app that helps them identify and strengthen portals. The problem is they didn't have the man power to physically go around finding, and capturing them all across the world. So they try to enlist sensitives like Tycho and Jarvis, thinking they might hold the key.
This backfire. By closely interacting with the enhanced portals at Niantic, these sensitives become even more connected to the Shapers and can see the plans of the NIA. The sensitives steal some of the technology from Niantic, intent on instead strengthening the portals for the Shapers. These phones with their portal detection apps start getting leaked. Right about the same time, a rebel-type named P.A. Chapeau starts piecing together their plans. 

Knowing that it was only a matter of time before a massive intelligence leak blew the whole project sky-high, they come up with the brilliant idea to use P.A. Chapeau. If they can frame the Shapers as the bad guys, they can use human's inherit fear of 'aliens' to start a group that will go around and capture portals for them. They quickly get together with their contact John Hanke at Google, and hatch a plan. Together, they release the 'game' Ingress and get people to go around capturing and linking portals for Niantic. They feed P.A. false information, and keep him on the run, but make sure his message continues to get out.

See when you frame it this way everything makes sense. The Resistance are removing the portals from Shaper control, but they aren't shutting them down. They're strengthening them for Niantic! Links, fields, 'Mind Units', it's all to increase Niantic's influence. The NIA are using the Resistance to do their footwork for them!

Jarvis, aided by the Shapers, figured out a way to hack the Ingress app so it can be used, instead, to take away portals from Niantic, and starts 'Enlightening' people of this truth one by one. That is why he is dead, and Chapeau still lives.

It all makes sense now. If I disappear, you know I was right.
