Whilst reading the recently released book 1 of 26 by Zack William Thomas Jameson, I was struck by the possibility that much of it comes across as potentially factual, however, it is being dressed up in fictional framework.
Could this be possible? Could there be a new way to secrete potentially sensitive information into the public domain via such a channel? Would there be any merit in this activity and most importantly would anyone take note?
Perhaps the best way to assess what could be a new phenomena in information disclosure, would be to have a look at how recent whistle blowers have fared; and the answer is not too well.
Julian Assange is still effectively a prisoner in the Ecuadorian embassy in London and cannot leave due to charges levelled at him by the Swedish government.
Edward Snowden is currently living in Russia and cannot return to the USA for fear of prosecution and Chelsea Manning is only free due to the generosity of Barack Obama.
All have suffered as a consequence of their activities as whistle blowers and this must surely have an impact on any other would-be whistle blowers before they begin the process of information disclosure.
But what if the sensitive information being posted into the public domain was disguised as part of a fictional account, designed to protect the whistleblower whilst at the same time alert the public to any potential wrongdoing or long debated conspiracy?
Given what has happened in recent times, using fiction as a mechanism to place sensitive information into the public domain seems an entirely sensible way forward for any would-be whistle blower.
Before I go any further I have to confess an interest in the subject matter.
Over the years 1 of 26 in its many guises has fascinated me. Whether that be the initial reports by Mark Collins into the M6 and Paris Paranormal Crashes or the video that was ‘leaked’ online in 2011, there has always been an interest in the story; so much so I released my own book, Fact or Fiction, which debated the authenticity of the whole thing.
I’ve always had an open mind as to whether the thing was fact or fiction, as Nick Pope put it, it could have easily been dreamt up by one man and a keyboard.
So what makes this different?
Well firstly, the book is about 160,000 words and mirrors the original reports that were published all those years ago.
Secondly, rather than contradict anything that went before, the book reads like a mass disclosure of information and attempts to show a clear connection between what happened on the M6 in the UK and in Paris, France.
This n itself is not a revelation, there were always suggestions that the two incidents were linked through their similarities; bright lights, passengers in vehicles either allegedly disappearing or changing appearance, and the thin veil of the authorities closing in to nullify any rumours. This is classic conspiracy territory and opens up a wide reach of opportunities to expand on the original reports.
So how do we get from what looks like fiction to what could be potentially something factual?
Perhaps the lack of any solid evidence is in fact the vital clue to suggest that there is more to this than meets the eye. Timing was also an essential element.
The book was released on March 15th 2018.
A few days later the stories and covert investigations into Cambridge Analytica and their data mining processes were blown wide open.
But how does this have any relevance to 1 of 26?
To establish this I had to read the book and drill down to the detail. What I found was a sequence that went into great detail about data mining. It is set in the future but the sequence has the two main protagonists, Kallyuke and Steve Garner debating the validity of stealing data to rebuild knowledge; coincidence? Maybe, but then the book takes a sinister turn talking about how firewalls were penetrated and how those who post information in public are at risk of such activities.
Remember, this came out days before the whole saga of Cambridge Analytica blew up into the public domain.
I then moved onto a sequence that discussed the existence of a DNA Gun; let me explain.
This weapon supposedly tracks its victim via their DNA, it literally fires a bullet with its intended victims name on it.
So again, I ask myself about the relevance to today’s world?
Firstly imagine the power a nation would have if such a weapon did actually exist or was in development? Then I looked to the recent breakthroughs in medical science and how a persons DNA could hold the key to early detection and cure.
Of course I’m not doubting the validity of such research but at every turn it seems that the creation of a DNA database from birth is key to this breakthrough having any chance of success.
So I then tied this back to the DNA gun and how it operates; a close range weapon that is capable, according to the book, of tracking and then disabling an intended target based on their DNA; that’s quite a powerful weapon.
There are many other examples, such as the alleged existence of a protocol to deal with anyone caught up some form of time travel and preventing them from saying anything about the existence of the ability by discrediting them; where have we heard that one before?
Again, I’m not saying that time travel is possible, but I am saying that the mere existence of a protocol to discredit any witnesses caught up such an experiment does somewhat suggest the authorities are prepared to deal with the fallout.
Now, if we widen that reach, it could apply to any witnesses caught up in any military or scientific experiment. We’ve all read the accounts of people who have given a witness testimony to the existence of many alleged events that have been discredited by the authorities only to later reveal they were telling the truth.
So where does that leave the creators of 1 of 26? Very much in the clear.
They exist only online and the information available that confirms their existence is scant and leads nowhere.
So far anything they have said in public appears to be very controlled and almost written from a script; the use of the phrase blurring the lines being perhaps a hint of what I am suggesting and the only hint from the writer who goes by the name Zack William Thomas Jameson.
So if we go back to the original point, how does this all connect?
Well so far there have been no arrests and no suggestion of a whistleblower in sight.
Is this, then, the perfect route to disclose sensitive information? Intertwining a series of disclosures into a book that appears to be fictional could be the perfect way to avoid arousing the suspicions of the authorities yet still get the information into the public domain.
And then there is the 1 of 26 code, referred to in the book and currently on a Twitter feed, untouched since January 2012.
According to some experts I have contacted the code is unbreakable, a very typical homemade code that doesn’t follow the usual algorithms or protocols set down when building a code.
There has been no promotion of the book aside from the odd post on Twitter by a man who goes by the name Larry Hobson and the web site is currently a restricted site which appears to serve no purpose; perhaps it will be used at a later date.
So there we have it, 1 of 26 could still be a work of total fiction and have no relevance to what I’ve said here, but given the time and effort that has gone into the book and all the online materials I still think there may be more to it.
Thanks for reading.
