Where this is heading:
Since we know snooping covers all data and all people who use data (meaning everybody), nothing is too trivial to be spied on and collected and stored and analyzed for suspicious content.
The technology may or not currently exist to collect every datum under the sun, but that’s the goal, and the program is rapidly advancing.
At some point, a new crossroad will be reached. There will be outsiders who communicate in ways that exceed the parameters of the State’s algorithms.
Which is to say, what these people transmit and receive will be picked up and stored, but what it means will be a puzzle.
Why? Because they will be working with new languages whose terms move beyond, for example, the acceptable and known spectrum of human emotions.
Such emotions would be referred to through metaphor or through symbols that can’t be translated down into ordinary languages.
At that point, the spying agencies will decide their limited algorithms should do more than interpret meaning: their formulas should govern and dictate what kind of communication is permissible.
To put it another way, people should communicate what can be analyzed by machines, and should refrain from touching on and inventing what the machines can’t assess.
Surveillance becomes the arbiter and shaper of public and private interactions.
“Speak only in ways that allow us to decide whether you are a threat.”
Those who break that rule will automatically fall under suspicion and be labeled. And investigated. An attempt will be made to reeducate them.
Into less intelligence and imagination.
Everything I’m describing in this piece is already, on some level, happening, although not all of it officially by fiat.
The Surveillance State is a sophisticated version of peer pressure, in which the peers turn out to be agents. Propaganda operatives invent a need for spying on populations, and their media allies refuse to expose this fact.
As the future unfolds, it will become obvious that the true purpose of snooping is to place a ceiling on what can be experienced.
Looked at from afar, whole populations will resemble prisoners shackled to grossly limited conceptions of themselves.
But there is a counter-trend. Even now, the natives are restless. Freed from old constrictions of organized religion and its mythologies, some people are recognizing they have the ability to exceed, step around, and move through the so-called laws of physics, into psychic territories that float beyond the space-time continuum.
Without laboriously citing examples (and even confirming studies), I would liken this breakout to the discovery that one can listen to music that has been labeled “dissonant” (outside the approved spectrum of harmony) and, in it, find new meanings and emotions and unreducible seas of life.
