For those who have just arrived on Planet Earth, let me remind you that what we are experiencing since last Sunday evening is the “Pearl Harbor of Global Democracy” according to Hilary Clinton and the “9/11 of American Diplomacy” according to Barak Obama and his advisors. After 400,000 secret documents on the operating methods of the US army in Iraq, Assange has broken the sound barrier since Sunday with 250,000 diplomatic cables that concern 179 countries! Le Monde, Der Spiegel, El País, the Guardian and the New York Times… according to the latter, more than 1,200 journalists are picking their way through roughly half a billion words of extremely contemporary cables, the most recent of which dates from March 2010. For historians who normally have to wait 50 years before getting access to such material, this is a dream come true. In this case the diplomatic cables are not much older than 7 months. Their scope is colossal. Hence the US State Department’s cry of “murder”…

My dear little wolves and she-wolves, in truth, I tell you, Sunday night tens of thousands of writers put an end to their lives … Imagine you were a Sci-Fi or Anticipation writer, director of Sci-Fi – Fantasy Collection at Pocket, Denoël or Rivages.

According to Laurent COURAU, the mythical founder of the Spirale who is postponing his suicide, “Assange and Wikileaks have definitively relegated fiction to beneath reality and we are seeing a veritable incarnation of the cyber-punk imagination right now in this early 21st century”.

As I see it, Julian Assange is the natural son of Lorenz (Edward Norton), he is quite simply the “Black Swan” of the beginning of this century… he is breaking the seals one by one in the agora of the ethers that is Internet.

Last precaution: Julian Assange has placed a small encrypted file entitled Insurance History on the Swedish Server of Pirate Bay (specialist in the illegal download of music and film music). On Twitter, he recommends that his followers download the file and await his instructions…

Pour ceux qui arriveraient sur la planère Terre, je leur rappelle que, ce que nous vivons depuis dimanche soir, est le « Pearl Harbor de la Diplomatie mondiale » cqfd Hillary Clinton et selon Obama et ses conseillers le « 11 septembre de la diplomatie américaine ». Après 400 000 documents confidentiels, relatifs au mode opératoire de l’armée américaine en Irak, il passe le mur du son avec depuis dimanche soir, 250 000 dépêches diplomatiques qui frappent plus de 179 pays ! Le Monde, Der Spiegel, El PAis, the Guardian et New York Times. Selon ce dernier, plus de 1 200 journalistes sont jour et nuit sur une base de données de près d’un demi milliard de mots… sur des dépêches diplomatiques ultra-récentes donts les dernières datent de mars 2010. C’est le rêve de l’historien qui doit normalement patienter jusqu’à 50 ans pour pouvoir accéder à de tels trésors. Ici les dépêches diplomatiques ont à peine plus de 7 mois. Tout y passe. D’où le département d’état américain qui hurle à l’assassin…

Mes p’tits loups, mes p’tites louves, en vérité, je vous le dis, dimanche soir des dizaines de milliers d’écrivains se sont donnés la mort… Imaginez une seconde que vous soyiez écrivain de SF ou d’Anticipation, directeur de Collection SF – Fantasy chez Pocket, Denoël ou Rivages.

Selon Laurent COURAU, fondateur mythique de la Spirale qui repousse son suicide, il déclare : « Assange et Wikileaks relèguent définitivement la fiction loin derrière la réalité et l’on assiste à la véritable incarnation de l’imaginaire cyber-punk dans ce début de XXIème siècle ».

A mes yeux, Julian Assange est le fils naturel de Lorenz (Edward Norton), il est tout simplement le « Cygne Noir » du début de ce siècle, il brise les sceaux un par un dans l’agora des éthers qu’est l’Internet.

Avec la globalisation d’Internet, il faut s’attendre, selon mon vieux maître Paul Virillio à un accident général, un accident jamais vu, aussi étonnant que le temps mondial, ce temps jamais vu. Un accident général qui serait un peu ce qu’Epicure appelait « l’accident des accidents ».

Ce jour fut le 28 novembre 2010 où Internet est devenu l’incarnation de l’information à l’état brut, c’est aussi le jour où les citoyens du village “Glocal” de Mc Lhuan ont eu à leurs dispositions l’histoire en temps réel, apanage jusqu’à présent des puissants. C’est aussi la révélation de la phrase de Mathieu(x26) qui prends son plein sens “car il n’y a rien de caché qui ne doit être découvert ni de secret qui ne doivent être connu” …(page 183 Opus III Abode of Chaos Spirit)

Ultime précaution : Julian Assange a placé sur le serveur suédois de Pirate Bay (spécialisé dans les téléchargements illicites de musique et de films), un petit fichier crypté mystérieux, baptisé »Assurance historique ». Sur Twitter, il recommande à ses partisans de le télécharger et d’attendre les instructions.
