Human technology is not always the demonic inferior

If I wasn't developing software to extend my purview of my demonic enemies to as wide as its future users will permit [see TECH | "Demon net" iPhone app prototype; see also DemonNet for iOS Developers], I'd be a full-time computer nerd. This world has gone to such admirable lengths to build products capable of making effective changes to matters of consequence, which is not the case in all worlds (and, hardly less true on this one than any other). In spite of my situation, I'm compelled to fold such products into the solution somehow, to make use of them (and give honor to them), to make sure they don't go unappreciated, and to herald the selfless charity they embody, everywhere. As a user of such products, I like being at least vicariously associated with the people who build them, if in no other way.

It's hard at first to get demons to appreciate a great human product, primarily, because mostly such products are not designed for any problem they have, and they do not accommodate their physiological characteristics to make them useable, besides. To explain, I'll provide a few usability issues demons might encounter with mobile devices:
  • touch screens on mobile devices are great for people, but a demon's touch will short out the screen and phone
  • what the human eye sees as a sharp, brightly lit LCD display is obfuscated by the glare of the unseen portions of the spectrum of light it emits to the demon eye (not always, but in many cases)
Aside from a couple of specifics, a more general issue demons have with human technology is their deceptively primitive appearance. Most demon races are pretty advanced; and, even the less-advanced races are well-travelled and -exposed enough to know the difference.

Who needs an iPhone when you've got wormholes?
The demonic equivalent of nanotechnology, artificial intelligence and working knowledge of quantum physics has enabled some races to build intelligent, mechanical forms of life out of off-the-shelf parts, which, among many things, can move from one point in space to another in the blink of an eye, and which are durable and savvy enough to single-handedly wage war as an unseen enemy against any world less capable (and therefore vulnerable). This fact leads to a disinterest by demons in anything built by humans hands—at least until a human-built product bites them in the ass by surprise.

To a large extent, that's already been the invention of the same imaging sensors that are used by astronomers, and that are built into every digital camera manufactured. The lack of parity with our demonic foes due to our inability to detect cloaked matter was mitigated by the extended visual range afforded by the CMOS sensor, as well as their placement in nearly two billion hands.

This has led to several historical events considered noteworthy of mention by Wikipedia, specifically:
  • The 2004 Indian Ocean earthquake was the first global news event where the majority of the first day news footage was no longer provided by professional news crews, but rather by citizen journalists, using primarily camera phones.
  • On November 17, 2006, during a performance at the Laugh Factory comedy club, comedian Michael Richards was recorded responding to hecklers with racial slurs by a member of the audience using a camera phone. The video was widely circulated in television and internet news broadcasts.
  • On December 30, 2006, the execution of former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was recorded by a video camera phone, and made widely available on the Internet. A guard was arrested a few days later.
  • Camera phone video and photographs taken in the immediate aftermath of the 7 July 2005 London bombings were featured worldwide. CNN executive Jonathan Klein predicts camera phone footage will be increasingly used by news organizations.
  • Camera phone digital images helped to spread the 2009 Iranian election protests.
  • Camera phones recorded the BART Police shooting of Oscar Grant.
To the end of this list, I want to add:
  • In 2017, the DemonNet DAQ system devices was developed and distributed for camera-enabled mobile devices, which was used by nearly all owners of such devices to detect and track cloaked entities worldwide in order to develop defenses against any harmful incursions by same, and to otherwise protect everyone on the planet.
There may be lots of worlds where dreamers dream dreams like that, but I'll bet there's only a few where dreams like that come true, and probably only one where it could come true in due time. I'll bet one more thing, too: that in all of the worlds where demons do to its inhabitants the things it does here, it's not so much a dream as it is a dire necessity.

Case in point: A pregnant mother recently posted to Facebook what even I thought at first was a faked image of her head, half of it transparent. It garnered a lot of interest—more so than my own of my head completely and factually missing, shown below:

Four still frames from a video showing my head removed in one instant, and then replaced in another
It was so popular, in fact, that I think that, eventually, my software will take off once people discover just how common decapitation is (and has been, as evidenced by an image provided by another decapitation victim, which is posted to Demon people fail at attempt to use powers on their own).

If you read the Facebook post, you'll find that I had a lot prepared beforehand to offer someone with concerns such as hers, namely, these videos:
I was also prepared to use her own media to support my conclusions, as evidenced by these edits to her original image:

Two demons (out of many), circled, as seen in her original imageA color- and contrast-enhanced version of the original imageA mirrored copy of the enhanced original
A slice from the mirrored copy and the enhanced original each, joined together at the seams, reveal a grinning face of a green-headed demonThe two halves of a white-faced demon on either side of the green-faced demon (left), joinedThe join inadvertently revealed another demon below the white-faced one; which appears to be dressed in an ornate ceremonial, almost Arab-esque garb
Both of these things helped me weather the surge of responses from everyone else who commented, all of whom tried really hard to ignore me at first—including the original poster—but, by the end, could not help but take notice.
NOTE | Although the inadvertent discovery of the almond-eyed demon at the bottom of the two slices was interesting, even more interesting is the fact that the half of his face lines up perfectly with the half of the demon's face above him. Not sure what to make of that yet.
Once convinced that her problem was the one I claimed it to be, the poster asked: Is there anything I can do to protect myself? My reply was: I'm working on that...

That work, by the way, looked like this today:

This video is a demonstration of the most efficient means (in terms of memory and CPU usage) of generating a live graph view of data as it is stored in a database at a rate of 30 records per second for the DemonNet DAQ system client. It supplements my answer to another developer seeking advice online as to how to do just this very thing, and who had received literally the worst of answers from other developers. The answer was provided in lieu of an answer he already accepted as useful, but which included no information whatsoever as to how to draw a graph, and ill-advised the questioner to maintain a secondary container of data in addition to a primary one. The extra container would have burdened the questioner with unnecessary data management, and the app with excessive memory and power consumption. You can view my answer and see the code that draws the graph on

A real-time graph makes it easy to sift through the mountain of data the app collects to find the specific EMF-interference signature left by a demon's cloak when in proximity to the camera sensor. Presently, that signature is defined only as a change in the readings overall, which can be brought about by any number of sources in addition to a demon's cloak.
NOTE | Changes in readings can also occur with such sources in tandem with a demon's cloak, making the two indistinguishable from each other without further research.
To refine that definition into one that clearly identifies interference from cloaked molecules to the exclusion of (and while in the presence of) any other source, data from multiple DAQ system clients must be collected, combined and analyzed. That's why widespread use is essential, and is why I make the effort and otherwise take notice to the postings such as the one to Facebook.

The vital importance of digital camera imaging sensors
The reason digital camera sensors are uniquely qualified to be a vital part of the solution to the demonic plague can be explained by the primary differences between cloaked and non-cloaked molecules with respect to visibility and their respective interaction with light.

A non-cloaked molecule absorbs almost all of the light that strikes it, absorbing some of its properties, and then emitting its own light from the portion the molecules did not absorb. That explains and defines variances in color, and why we can see things comprised of non-cloaked molecules.

By contrast, non-cloaked molecules absorb very little light, which probably flows right past it due, in part, to the difference in the relative flow of time between cloaked molecules and non-cloaked molecules (it's not just matter that is a factor here, but time, also). The molecules are probably moving too fast and the light too slow to interact in the same way normal light and molecules in normal time do. Although some light is absorbed by cloaked molecules, that light is emitted at a frequency outside the spectrum of human visual range.

More about the app
More information regarding the purpose of the DemonNet DAQ System, and how the data collected by clients will be used for the aforestated purposes, is available on this blog at:

That is what makes cloaked molecules relatively invisible to people, but not the CMOS sensor, which has a visual range that extends well beyond that of humans. That is why they are used by astronomers, who observe phenomena in space that the human eye cannot see—things that are evidenced only by their emissions of gamma rays and X-rays and the like—and that is why they are used to detect cloaked demons (the "interference" that is the evidence of their presence isn't really interference to anyone but the human observer; it's just the camera's rendering of the imprint left on the sensor by the unseen light).

The concept of light being transformed into something vastly different than that which is most commonly seen in nature should not be unfamiliar to anyone. Fluorescence works just like cloaked molecules, in that it is a property some molecules exhibit by absorbing light of one colour and emitting it at a different color (that's not the same as absorbing all colors and only reflecting a subset; fluorescence make a new color).

Fluorescence occurs when a photon of high energy from the UV or blue end of the visible spectrum is absorbed by a molecule, which excites its electrons into a higher-than-normal vibrational state, albeit temporarily. Once the energy that caused the excitation dissipates, the electrons return to their normal state by releasing a photon at a lower energy than the energy of the photon it absorbed. That results in a different color to the light it emits than that of the absorbed light. In scientific research, fluorescence is used as a fingerprint to identify different molecules present in a substance; in cloak detection, the same principles and means will be applied to the equivalent ends.
