Notice any uptick in "A future solar flare could wipe out the entire internet" stories lately? I've seen them from multiple publications and even some of those informative youtube channels have put out videos on the subject. Is this setting the cover for a global coordinated take down of the internet? Will it coincide with the implementation of a global government? What better way to stop the spread of info than to get rid of internet communications...

This would actually be a good thing since a large portion of the bread and circus would disappear and signal to everyone the boogaloo has started. I'm sick of the pussy-footing around. People are too comfortable. It would have to happen within a month or two to be the trigger though, since most who have taken the clot shot will probably die this flu season. Also, food prices are skyrocketing and the dollar is collapsing.

I think--just like when you leave FB/IG/social media in general--you realize your life is actually better without it.

It would be an adjustment for a few days to a week...then we're realize how much it's been a negative influence in our lives

Depends on the size and intensity. The big version would end Electricity, and end the factories that make the replacement parts. That would be quite an adjustment, and would definitely solve our overpopulation problem.

I would be fine with no internet, I would read a book more, no more TV since we are internet based, be outside more and I reckon much healthier.

No chance in hell they would get rid of the Internet, it is the backbone of their operation ever since Google was ordained as the supreme gateway for all information. They will instead use law and crony capitalism to stamp out all uncontrolled areas of the Internet.

You can ignore newspapers and TV these days easily. It's a lot more expensive and slower and tougher to be offline entirely these days.

If it does go down it will not be permanent.

Online propaganda is their best weapon OP.

it's run by the military they can shut it down at any moment by simply blockading all packets going to the top 95% of the internet (FAANG sites)

YOu see they dn't have to block US. They have to block FAANG sites and that will be the effective end of the internet.. Think about if you can't get to your bank. No buying/selling. SO they could block the top 90% of banks with just a one page list of websites to block. bank of america, wellsfargo. they could block the fortune 500 comapnies...they could block themselves!

They could block the electronic clearing house and all ECH transactions would stop. Thats the end of commerce online

block amazon and block the shippers comminication to ecommerce sites...that's it

of course your computer will still work, and your ethernet card and your connection to ISP but then these domains not resolving....it's over...it's allgone

The Bible says the earth will be destroyed by fire. Take away the magnetic field (which has significantly weakened in the last 10 years) and throw in some solar flares and everything on the surface dies.

It's more than just holy texts. There's hard evidence we're in serious trouble in the next few decades. It's the science of catastrophism. Watch this.

Well, considering this has been a known problem ever since DARPA started developing Internet, it's one helluva long PsyOp.

If you watch the Suspicious0bservers YT channel you will also know that it is not just a probability, it's a higher and higher likelihood as we continue with our current trajectory of weakening earth magnetosphere and reduced overall solar activity and changing of earth's magnetic poles.

It is technically impossible. Iternet is mostly fiber optics absolutely redundant to the solar frares and datacenters inside steel closets in concrete bulding with steel reinforcements. No solar flare could "wipe" "all internet". Especially taking in mind that solar flare influences on only sunny half of planet.

So only government could "wipe out internet". And it should be done in every country.

However, turning off the internet will ruin all that dumb coronahoax social distancing, surveillance systems build for coronahoax tracking, will made databases with covidpass unavailable, etc. I.e. wiping internet it also wipe out nearly everything they build using coronahoax as excuse. I doubt they will do it.

In Russia, during lockdowns, internet provider employees suddenly become higher caste, without any lockdown restrictions. Ministry of communication issued a special order with carte blanche for them to keep internet working at any cost.

So, only authorities could "wipe internet out", but they inevitable wipe out all coronahoax shit along with internet. :)

It's absolutely possible. It's a matter of scale.

Watch this.

It is impossible, because to shut down internet you need to shut down every IX in the world, not only Google, Facebook and Amazon in US.

To break the shielding of every single IX you need so much energy, that nobody will left on the Earth to be able to tell is internet is down or not. Even if somebody survive, the question of internet will be the least important thing they will care of.

And it definitely could not be solar flare. If solar flare could break your IX or datacenter, this just means that you, or your managers just stole a lot of money.

When the electric goes your internet goes.on the plus side you may die in the riots before you starve.

CrazyRussian 1 point ago +1 / -0

Do you ever see any datacenter or IX? Even simple internet provider node usually have not only UPS for half a day, but also a diesel-generators.

So, internet will still work for some time even if all power plants will be off-line. However nobody will care about internet in case of planetary blackout.

you are thinking about this all wrong

imagine if you have a misconfigured DNS

Can you use the internet? NO the answer is no

If the websites don't resolve then the internet is effectively useless.

All the electronics can still work and ethernet and syn/ack and all that still work; but if DNS does not work then it doesn't work

YOu cannot in this age, access websites using a direct ip address unless you have small boutique sites (read: not important) that specifically make their site liek this exactly to mitigate this scenario (ice age farmer, corbett report, etc)

Other big sites use DDOS protection and load balancers so they are not accessible by IP address

You are completely wrong. You need DNS just to quickly find IP address of, say, google or facebook. You don't need DNS for tox, torrents, zeronet and nearly everything else. WWW is only part of internet. And not the best one. And even for WWW you could use local DNS cache, a mirror of root DNS servers, or even a necessary records in your /etc/hosts

YOu cannot in this age, access websites using a direct ip address

Could not understand where you find a problem. In any case you connect to the IP address, not to the name. Domain name is sent in headers of HTTP request over the established connection. You could form request by yourself, or just add a line with IP and domain name of interest to /etc/hosts. That's all.

Other big sites use DDOS protection and load balancers so they are not accessible by IP address

They are perfectly accessible by IP address, just because it is the only way to access them.

this is precisely why they have Distributed name resolution such as IPFS...interplanetary file system so that you can have blockchain based, dns less, distributed websites

This has come up repeatedly since the early days of using satellites to deliver news feeds to the early ISPs.

If someone was going to conspire to damage the internet while maintaining control you could use a worm as an excuse and just say it's causing BGP flaps or attacking the root DNS servers. Both have happened and have taken down internet routing and DNS. Solar flares would be too hard to control and a lot of high end equipment or the buildings there in can protect against large scale emf already. There's too much redundancy and already prepared ISPs that this would be corrected in a moderate amount of time.

Source - I used to work on ISPs and have had the solar flare conversation, people are mildly prepared already and aware of it.

ghost_of_aswartz 1 point ago +1 / -0

Yes.

Planning for it.

That will be the blackout signal that will be the do or die moment for any alleged 'white hats' to deploy their critical countermeasures, because if they don't then the future is over for free people, and no one will come for us, and that we will be given a signal after the 'internet' comes back (or doesn't) that its time to reclaim our freedom or die trying or just come to accept the great reset.

sorry for the dooming

Is this setting the cover for a global coordinated take down of the internet?

Not necessarily. if you're familiar with the 12000 year Earth Catastrophe Cycle, the current state of earth's polar drift, and our sun going into the maunder maximum, there is some cause for concern.

The latest forecast says that solar maximum—when the number of sunspots peaks and our star is at its most active—will occur between November 2024 and March 2026, but most likely around July 2025.

This is happening while our magnetic field defenses will be the weakest in a long time. Have you noticed that even the mainstream news last year began grudgingly admitting that polar flips are associated with great extinctions?

The ECC (2030 - 2050) doesn't necessarily mean mile high tsunamis of ocean slosh sweeping across the continents, but it's too early to predict exactly what will happen. We have seen CMEs emitted from our sun that would end electricity and electronics on earth. So far our field has protected us, and we've been lucky.

Even aside from the ECC, one direct hit by a good sized CME would put everyone back into producing all their own food needs, or dying. No trucks or vehicles. No deliveries. No food stores. No tractors either. Farming would be done with animals pulling the plow.

*Steam engines might still work, as long as they had no electronics added.

iv thought about this before. might try and build a faraday cage for the hell of it. ( protects electronic devices from EMP attacks). Iv seen some people push that bullshit disclosure moment where they say there's a fake alien invasion coming. some think they might fake a small asteroid impact and just nuke somewhere. it is interesting to note that even though these are wildly different theory's the general idea is the same. and thats this is far from over

im not to knowledgeable on the subject but I believe it depends on how well you built it. cage is actually a bad way to describe it I should have said box.

It's not just electromagnetic fields we need to worry about. It's plasma discharges, xrays, gamma rays, half of the earth catching on fire, volcanos, tsunamis, and massive earthquakes.

If there is an internet apocalypse, then it's from hackers from China or Russia destroying the electric grid (GridEx, remember that?) and it WILL be done in the middle of unprecedented chaos all over the US.

And by Chaos, I meant BLM/Antifa killer rampages which causes most city centers to become death beds.
