PostSubject: Trying to Control Boyd's OODA Loop Across Society   Tue 01 Jun 2010, 12:49 pm

Web 2.0 and "Cloud" computing is nothing other than a specific implementation of Air Force Colonel John Boyd's theories (Boyd's Loop, or the OODA Loop), as developed by the US Military, where those who execute the loop faster and more efficiently are more responsive to social forces, and will win the battle for the hearts and minds of their audiences.

http://www.wilsonresearch.com/main/ooda-loop.php

The military has been dealing with the problem of strategy vs. execution for a long time. Everyone has heard the truism that "no plan survives contact with the enemy," but the military has a doctrine to deal with that fact, called "OODA" -- Observe, Orient, Decide, Act. OODA describes a continuous command and control feedback loop, in which unfolding circumstances inform changes in strategy and execution. It is to the military what agile development is to the software team.

John Boyd's key competitive insight is the idea of "tempo" -- the speed with which you can run your feedback loop compared to your enemy. The most profound disruption occurs when you can strategize and execute inside the decision-making window of your enemy. As Boyd wrote about aerial combat:

"Time is the dominant parameter. The entity who goes through the OODA cycle in the shortest time prevails because his opponent [ie the public] is caught responding to situations that have already changed."

This is a massively important idea. Getting your opponent to respond to your moves prevents them from seizing the initiative and surprising you. I've seen this play out in business many times. In traditional video games, long development cycles created numerous examples of teams that conceptualized new products and delivered them to market while their competitors were mired in delays, grabbing market share and reinforcing brand. We've all seen supposedly weaker technologies vanquish more established ones through rapid, directed innovation in response to market forces.

http://bizpunk.blogspot.com/2009/04/disrupting-ooda-loop.html

Even the concept of "The Cloud" was developed by the Military, used to represent "an apparent conflict or dilemma between two actions." Hence, the cloud is nothing other than a data set the humans agree upon and perceived as true. Within these clouds problems can be framed, constrained and solved. It's quite fascinating that the Tech community has adopted this nomenclature for a social system designed for public use.



"A cloud is an elegant graphical means of displaying and solving an apparent conflict or dilemma between two actions. It is also sometimes known as a conflict resolution diagram; however, its correct name is a cloud. Central to the use of clouds as a problem solving device is the assumption that there are no conflicts in nature – only erroneous assumptions. 'There must be an erroneous assumption that we make about reality that causes a conflict to exist.'

Let’s look at this from another perspective and another culture – Japan; 'Problems exist because people believe they exist. If there were no people there would be no problems. People are also the ones who decide that a problem has been solved. Problem solving is the most typical human behavior.'"

The more I look the more I find that the path being pushed by Silicon Valley thought leaders is nothing more than a specific instance of Military Strategy.

This really boils it downs and show where so many of the forces that we are witnessing originate from.

For example, vectoring (ie propaganda) is itself a technique to create and control ones decision tree through the use of predetermined logic and semantics. The developers of propaganda figure out and test all of the "thinking" before the messaging is even deployed into society, so that the individuals conclusions are designed in advance, without the targets even realizing it.

As I think you illustrated in another post, and as I think was discussed here previously, we now have sensors in the public domain that are tied to a computerized neural network, created so that these "loops" can operate faster and perhaps even on an personalized basis.

Our decisions are being made for us faster than we can ingest the information, process, analyze and decide for ourselves. What's so unfortunate is that these techniques are already in full deployment and virtually no one is aware of them. The only way one can regain control of their own decision loop is to totally disconnect from their information outputs.

Unfortunately, most simply disconnect one set of inputs and replace them with another. But as Boyd's systems shows, this really is ineffective, as your decision loop is still controlled.

I guess the good news is that this cycle can be easily broken if the will to do so exists.

Here it is, in graphic format. Funny how the center of the World is the Pentagon.



This is essentially how social control will be achieved. Control ones Orient and Observe (O-O)part of the loop, and the Decide and Act part can be predicted. Do this across enough people, and you've got control across society.

Understanding this kind of explains everything that we're witnessing today. It's why control of the media is so darn important, whether it is AJ spewing his noise, or Rense, or Watt, or Dan Rather. O-O has to be controlled at all costs.

Excellent material offthepage, thanks for sharing. This is a new subject matter that I am unfamiliar with however I am sure I have fallen in the trap. So I know that this relates to media. What other ways has this been applied if it has other than the media? How do I make sense of this or apply the defense to this? I went into a store the other day and made it a point to look at every piece of advertising with a conscious mind of what I was looking at rather than being subliminized and I was just amazed at how much propaganda was at the stores, from every conceivable angle that the eyes glance to.You mentioned how social control will be achieved, has it not been achieved yet? I know that it has not pulled its magic on everyone yet. But are you referring to some future point in time as if 1984 style achievement? Do you think it is achievable? I personally don't think it is as there are always strangers who are off the grid so to speak and many of them but the question is is there enough of them/us to always be a thorn.

This is most definitely at play now and extremely successful. The current cloud, as you say, is magazines, consumer marketing, newspapers, TV, Radio, etc. The purpose of the cloud is to control the Object and Orient (O - O) part of your decision process. They've found that if O - O can be controlled, then an individual's Decide and Act (D - A) can be deduced, and therefore planned.

So, the new cloud is the Internet cloud, which they are actually calling "The Cloud" in an ironic twist. But now it gets even better, because they are getting individuals to store all their personal information in this cloud, thereby gaining even greater control of an individuals O - O. For example, now they will have direct access to your personal calendar, your todo lists, scribble notes, etc. Hence, they'll have that much more insight into your decision process, and thereby have more influence over it.

We're already at 1984, now we're headed somewhere else, somewhere new that is so frightening it is hard to conceive of. I think this is pretty easy to break free from however, all we have to do is just understand what they are attempting to do and disregard it. Unfortunately, no one seems to want to, or be able to, recognize the manipulation in our own internal decision processes. Hence, free choice becomes managed choice.

The Cloud And The OODA Loop

The cloud is formidable, but it is also enigmatic. It is used both to formulate the nature of the problem
and also to formulate the direction of the solution.

"http://www.dbrmfg.co.nz/Thinking Process Cloud.htm"


Quote :
The OODA Loop is shorthand for a series of short steps that many businesses and competitive teams do naturally, but don't have a name for it.

Observation (Means observing unfolding events, gathering research and intelligence, which includes actively collecting intelligence about the battlefield/market where the action is taking place, the so called frontlines, or in business, the place where the customer decides on which product or service to buy, the moment of customer action.)

Orientation (Means sythesizing and analyzing and empathizing with the overall traditions, backgrounds, settings, previous experiences, successes, rejections, and observations into a whole picture of the environment in which the action is taking place.)

Decision (Means arriving at plan of action based on all known intelligence, observation and orientation.)

Action (Means executing the plan of action and feeding back positive and negative results into O-O steps above)

Those who execute the OODA Loop faster and more efficiently than their competitors are more responsive to current market needs and market forces, and will win the battle for the hearts and minds of their audiences.


http://www.wilsonresearch.com/main/ooda-loop.php

Without the OODA Loop... "we will find it impossible to comprehend, shape, adapt to, and in turn be shaped by an unfolding, evolving reality that is uncertain, everchanging and unpredictable."

John Boyd, author of the OODA Loop.

"A future reality tree allows us to map out our future expectations given that we will introduce something new into our reality – the injection that we developed to break our current reality problem or core conflict. A future reality tree let’s us test the future outcome using known cause and effect to check that what we want is what we will get. "

"http://www.dbrmfg.co.nz/Thinking%20Process%20FRT.htm"

"At its simplest, a future reality tree might be thought of as a current reality with all the undesirable effects (UDE’s) changed to desirable effects (DE’s)"

File me under the category of "UDE Creator".

"The presence of the new idea or ideas as injections will change reality from undesirable outcomes of the present to desirable outcomes of the future. Maybe we need several different injections to achieve this.

The future reality tree is the tool of choice in gaining understanding and agreement that the solution we have decided upon will account for all of the undesirable effects that we currently experience and built into out current reality tree."

Please tell me that I am Dreaming this stuff up.

The more that I think about the concept of the OODA Loop, the more I realize that this is an excellent framework for understanding the psychopath.

For example, the psychopath deceives others through the careful control of a target persons' Observe and Orient part of the loop. Hence, the target person is convinced that they Observe one set of behavior and values within the psychopath, but infact these Observations are inaccurate, therefore, the target persons Orientation is inaccurate, and thus the target persons' Decisions and Actions are based upon inaccuracies and therefore may not be in the target persons' best interest.

So, what is happening now is that the behavior of the psychopath - this deception of the Observation and Orientation part of the OODA Loop - is being extended to a macro-social level. Society is therefore being built upon psychopathic values and behaviors, with all Observations being leveraged to deceived the target population, who then use this deception to Orient themselves from which they base internal Decisions and Actions.

If one can't see through the initial deception of our Observations, then society descends hopelessly into a weird sort of psychopathic co-dependency.

I find it's really a great way to explain so much of what is going on in society.

This is my understanding of all of this. Please criticize it if I am wrong:


In order to understand what is going on today, first read the Set of Main Articles from Knowledge Driven Revolution

Then read Between Two Ages by Zbigniew Brzezinski and The Technological Society by Jaques Ellul.

Then watch "Das Netz":



Then read "Revolution in Military Affairs from 1991 up to the present": http://popularsymbolism.com/mitaphane/rma-en.pdf

Oddly, many RMA Concepts are present in modern video games, like "Metal Gear Solid 2". Please see the following analysis: http://popularsymbolism.wordpress.com/2010/08/03/metal-gear-solid-2-sons-of-liberty-information-control/

Then, read the military document Joint Vision 2020, which lays out the agenda of Full Spectrum Dominance: http://www.scribd.com/doc/33264319/Joint-Vision-2020

Then, read Control Warfare: Inside the OODA Loop: http://www.scribd.com/doc/33264282/Control-Warfare-Inside-the-OODA-Loop





Which discusses the OODA loop, one of the battlefields on which the RMA operates (this is discussed in NetCentricTruther’s RMA document). OODA stands for Observe-Orient-Decide-Act. The traditional usage of the term refers to the military exercising their OODA loop in a manner more efficient than the enemy. Another usage of the term (such as in Control Warfare) refers to anticipating the enemy’s (our) actions based on knowledge of the environment from which they (we) absorb inputs, and knowledge of their (our) genetic, cultural, and informational makeup, from which decisions and actions can be inferred.

Here is a military PR video that breaks this down, giving us the context that the goal is for the military’s OODA loop to be quicker and more efficient than the enemy’s, integrating Sensors (O), situational awareness (O), dynamic command and control (D), and effects delivery (A):



What Military PR omits, however, is that in the context of Full Spectrum Dominance, all battlefields must be completely controlled. Therefore, all inputs informing the OODA loop of the enemy must be manufactured and not leave the acceptable domain of information. Therefore, alternative media, even though it is superior to mainstream media, is immediately suspect, since it would be instantly marginalized if it were not approved. Thus, we can say that much of the alternative media is designed to create a controlled anti-thesis to this system, leading to a new synthesis that leaves the fundamentals of this Global Beehive undisturbed. Indeed, the military anticipated this antithesis, calling it the “Eagle Movement” in their future history.

In other words, it is insufficient to form your opinions based on the opposite of the mainstream since neither the thesis nor the anti-thesis address the prime realities of this system. This brings to mind a theoretical psychology professor of mine who told me that Neitzche called a person who formed their beliefs based on the mainstream a "stupid person #1" or a "first kind of stupid person", and called a person who formed their values based on the opposite of mainstream values a "stupid person #2" or a "second kind of stupid person". I have no idea if Neitzche used those terms or not, but it illustrates the point beautifully.

Also, there are dialectics in "opposition" forces as well. The following example will elucidate this further.

Let’s look at this in terms of economic paradigms. Two of the most prominent attacks on the current system, libertarian (Austrian) and socialist (Marxist), are actually systems of control in disguise. The Marxist paradigm completely ignores the problem of central banking and fails to realize that we are under a banker parasitic and corporate socialist, and not a capitalist, system. Instead, it proposes central planners and political technocrats to introduce a new kind of tyranny. The Austrian paradigm re-instantiates feudalism by giving power to those who control the gold supply (the Rothschilds), who can expand and contract it as they wish, so as to have the world’s economies at their mercy.

The Socialist paradigm is obviously an elite project. As Carroll Quigley, Bill Clinton's mentor, said, "the power these energetic left wingers exercised was never their own ... but was ultimately the power of the international financial coterie. ... a congressional committee, following backward to their source the threads which led from admitted Communists like Whittaker Chambers, through Alger Hiss, and the Carnegie Endowment to Thomas Lamont and the Morgan Bank, fell into the whole complicated network of the interlocking tax-exempt foundations. The Eighty-third Congress in July 1953 set up a Special Committee to Investigate Tax-Exempt Foundations with Representative B. Carroll Reece, of Tennessee, as chairman. It soon became clear that people of immense wealth would be unhappy if the investigation went too far and that the "most respected" newspapers in the country, closely allied with these men of wealth, would not get excited enough about any revelations to make the publicity worth while, in terms of votes or campaign
contributions. An interesting report showing the Left-wing associations of the interlocking nexus of tax-exempt foundations was issued in 1954 rather quietly. Four years later, the Reece committee's general counsel, René A. Wormser, wrote a shocked,
but not shocking, book on the subject called Foundations: Their Power and Influence."

I also recommend listening to an interview with Norman Dodd, lead investigator for the Reece Commission, which is available here.

(auxiliary information can be found in World Revolution, Wall St. and the Bolshevik Revolution, and Red Symphony).

As for the Austrian Paradigm, the following quote will suffice:

"Many readers may be surprised to learn the extent to which the Graduate Institute and then Mises himself in the years immediately after he came to United States were kept afloat financially through generous grants from the Rockefeller Foundation. In fact, for the first years of Mises’s life in the United States, before his appointment as a visiting professor in the Graduate School of Business Administration at New York University (NYU) in 1945, he was almost totally dependent on annual research grants from the Rockefeller Foundation.”: http://www.independent.org/publications/tir/article.asp?a=692

In order to understand this process further, let me bring your attention to the “Peace” Symbol:



It’s obvious in light of the above what we are dealing with here. The “Peace” Symbol represents a contrived dialectic, synthesizing within a controlled boundary. The vertical line in the middle represents the intended direction which was to be created by placing thesis and antithesis against each other. It is important to realize that for this to be effective, nether thesis nor antithesis should address prime realities, thus the assertion that the circle represents the controlled boundary beyond which discussion must not reach.

In light of that, consider the following symbol from “G” Edward Griffin’s “Freedom Force International”, bastion of the libertarian (Austrian) right:



and consider the following image from City Lights Bookstore, bastion of the Socialist (Marxist) left:



Now, I'm not implying that Griffin and the owners of City lights intended for this symbol to indicate some sort of malevolent inside joke. Maybe they did, maybe they didn't. That is ultimately irrelevant, however, since their messages are just more vectors in the dialectic matrix.

Remember that full spectrum dominance means dominance over all colors, whether they by libertarian, left, right, socialist, ... whatever is in the pubic consciousness. That which hurts elitist dominance structures is marginalized and distorted (see Mason Gaffney’s work on Georgism entitled The Corruption of Economics).

In addition, the Orient aspect must be controlled, so that the enemy (us) will not be able to summon our resources to properly escape domination. This disorientation has been accomplished via the chemical dumbing down discussed previously. It has been accomplished by the extreme violations of bodily/genetic integrity caused by GMO foods, by psychotronic warfare, by aerosol spraying, by DU, and so on. This has been accomplished in education by the replacement of the classic Trivium and Quadrivium methods, which developed intellectual agency, with outcome based education, which created intellectual dependency, making the population subject to externally manufactured Information Operations and other such processes.

Those who somehow manage to escape the control over O-O will be recognized as outliers via “sense and respond” systems in the sensor/information/engagement grid informing the Elite’s OODA loop, which utilizes Network Centric Warfare. They may be disoriented via informational/chemical/biological attack, or they may be eliminated entirely.

So, to recap, the above definition shows that in the system at present and coming into view, the Elite executes their OODA loop more efficiently than the rest of the population, and the Action that they take is to try and dominate the O-O aspects of OUR OODA loop. Those immune to this action will be dealt with in the ways discussed in the above paragraph.

This is how they have achieved, and will achieve total control. The New World Order that is coming into view is going to be far more terrible than 1984, if we allow it to happen.

Bad as that sounds, this post is fortunately incredibly good news. Here’s why: We can be as speculative as we want about systems of control throughout history, but with what I have described, the military laid out the entire police state for us. No speculation is necessary. When you combine all the information I have given, you have the elite completely admitting, "We are committing treason. We are waging war against you. We are seeking to achieve complete control". In speaking of information warfare, those items constitute our hydrogen bomb, since they fully explain the police state. By publicizing this information, we will show people the science of how they have been controlled. With this laid out, if it ever became a part of the public consciousness, such a massive wave of revulsion would ensue and people would reject this contrived system. Then, hopefully, we might be able to construct a more humanitarian society.
