Sofia began researching complex subject matter as a result of 9/11. She has since interrogated atmospheric-related projects, and from this has drawn a compelling hypothesis suggesting the presence of a synthetic biology agenda pervading the everyday terrains we inhabit. Her “From Chemtrails to Pseudo-Life” lectures (Part 1 and Part 2) examine this theory from synthetic biology to radiation biology–the territory of our current addiction to wireless technology.

When an entire civilization or way of life is to be significantly altered the tried-and-true method of “repeating a lie until it becomes truth” needs to be done over a period of many years and in a multitude of varying ways to take hold and change the very assumptions and beliefs of a people.
This process is especially vital for reaching a given society’s more elite demographic—the opinion leaders who perceive themselves as “smarter than the average bear” and thus impervious to simple appeals and indoctrination.
Beginning in the late 1960s Operation Gladio and its corollary maneuvers proceeded throughout Europe, spanning over two decades.
