Time Cloak Used to Hide Messages in Laser Light

No kidding...if you've been keeping up, we now have LED light bulbs that can act as wireless information transmitters...and this is considered a common technology.  So get ready for something a little more advanced...


Consider first this article about temporal cloaking – a subject we’ve talked about before on this website – and a recently discovered “solution” to some of its inherent problems:

Time cloak used to hide messages in laser light

In other words, not only have technicians and scientists been able to remove information from the temporal stream, they are now able to recover it, provided they know the right frequency by which to do so:
“Last year, a team at Purdue University in Indiana built a cloak that could transfer hidden data at 1.5 gigabits a second, fast enough to make it theoretically useful for real communication. The only thing was, the message was hidden so well that no one could actually read it. That problem has now been solved.
“‘With this new device, we don’t just limit ourselves to thinking about cloaks as a way of preventing somebody from getting information, but also as a way to enable communication,’ says Joseph Lukens, an electrical engineer at Purdue. ‘One guy sees nothing, the other guy sees everything.’
“Lukens and his colleagues created two different communications channels using lasers tuned to two different frequencies. One is a regular frequency and the other is a time-cloaked channel that remains hidden unless you know it’s there. Photons from each laser traveled along the same fibre, but the intended recipient just needs to tune in to the right channel to reveal the secret information.”
Now for regulars here, I’ve been saying for quite some time that any implicit ability to engineer the fabric of (observable) space-time on the laboratory bench gives a potentially cosmic capability for destruction. But alternatively, it also gives a potential for cosmic re-engineering of reality at the most fundamental level, that of observed information. In effect, what the Purdue experiments imply is two levels of reality: the “matrix” reality of the everyday world you and I live in, and a hidden reality accessible to the “sysadmins” with the requisite keycode or frequency to tap into “temporally veiled information.”
One can easily extrapolate where this might go: information could possibly be temporally cloaked until some time in the future, when it could be unlocked or accessed only at that time…
…like an old-fashioned time lock on a bank vault.
Now imagine, for a moment, this type of technology applied to international and/or domestic financial clearing. Have some “bad paper” on the books that you need to shred? Why not “shred” it in the most effective way possible, via some sort of temporal cloaking, with the information – in this case in the form of trillions or quadrillions of dollars of electronic liquidity – only accessible to those with the right frequency, to be applied at the right time… ?
