    I’m more worried about companies who buy this data for AI analysis than the government hands-down.

    Too bad, that Collusion extension seems to have been discontinued for many years already.

    Want to stifle BIG DATA? Walmart phone, no credit cards, no home computer plugged into the internet, stay out of cities, no bank, use only cash, stop everything to do with your electronic identification…. Texas

    Every single idiot that got a Covid test ..well you’re d.n.a has been held and probably already sold.

    The world of tech is desperate for a real philosophical discussion – which is all but improbable given the influence that big tech oligarchs like Zuckerberg, Gates and Bezos wield.

    You can easily spam the algorithm. I shop for baby products, etc. or other things not relevant to me. Anyone can create an entire false "cyber persona" if they wish.

    ALL Matrix Games are created with AI. Human minds are the electric receivers. The 5 senses are what enable ‘experience’ inside Simulations. Outside Matrix simulations is where the control center is and is where the physical realm exist. AI is neutral about experiences. It simply creates what we dream in the pods on the physical realm for us to experience inside the Matrix. It’s ALL programmed. There are over 100 other Matrixes happening right now outside this one that are created 100% by Source energy.
    No fear. It’s just a ride but this Matrix simulation is shutting down. That’s why we hear ‘end game’ all the time. To win your ‘Game’ you must raise your frequency out of the 3rd and 4th Dimensions to at least the 5th Dimension. If you ask Source for guidance about how to do this, you will ‘receive’ it. Clues abound if you’re paying attention.

    Correction : they know you more than you know who you are.

    Man trying his best to be God…won't work. God also keeps account of what the evil ones are doing. Check this out, God does not need a computer and He truly knows all about you because he created you.
