You are fooling yourself if you think that it is just coincidence that Pokemon Go was released just one day before the Referendum on Thailand's new constitution. It is obvious that something secretive and sinister is happening.
Think what has occurred in the last month:
Aug 2: Plans to track all foreigners' mobile phones with special SIM cards
Aug 6: Pokemon Go released one day before referendum
Aug 9: A Pokemon caught at Government house
Aug 9: Pokemon Go banned from Government buildings etc.
Aug 10: Regulators threaten to ban Pokemon Go completely
What most people do not realize is that the Pokemon Go Application only makes Pokemon visible. The Pokemon themselves were already there. In fact they have been living amongst us for a long time, but nobody knew.
Everybody should see the CBS TV series “BrainDead” set in Washington. Alien insects crawl into peoples ears, eat half their brain and “take over” the other half. Congressmen, aids, Government officials, policemen, academics and journalists are all effected, but nobody notices. Ask yourself, if the same thing happened in Thailand, would anybody notice?
“BrainDead” is close to the truth but not exact. Its not insects but Pokemon that are making the attack. Remember Pokemon are incorporeal, so they have no problem getting into your brain.
But if you still need convincing, just watch a teenage geek staring at Pokemon Go on his phone, wondering about like a somnambulist, trying to find a rare Pokemon. Isn't it obvious that he has lost half his brain?
The real story from Khaosod:
Telecommunications regulators threatened to ban Pokemon Go if developers refuse to restrict the areas where it is played.
Acknowledging it was unsure it had the legal authority, the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission, or NBTC, on Wednesday said it would ban the game if its San Francisco-based developer does not respond to their request to limit areas where Pokemon appear.
“If they do not proceed, we might have to do what the prime minister wants, which is banning the game,” said Takorn Tantasith. “Russia and Iran also banned it.”
After being widely misrepresented in the media as the force behind bringing Pokemon Go to Thailand, telecommunications conglomerate True Corp was summoned by the commission Tuesday and asked to deliver its message to game developer Niantic. Takorn said he’d also like to know if Niantic could limit it to certain hours.
True clarified they weren’t involved with the game and only hold a license for the characters. The Pokemon cartoon has appeared on its TrueVisions satellite service. Nevertheless, the company said it would do what it could.
On Wednesday, the secretary general announced True had drafted a letter to Niantic which would be submitted to the American developer on Thursday after his office reviewed it.
Takorn, a top regulatory official, admitted he would need to go back to study the law on who held the power to ban the mobile game.
Asked why he was so alarmed by the game, Takorn acknowledged it wasn’t the first of its type.
“But nothing ever made people walk around in a governmental or religious place,” he said.
As the fad becomes a burning obsession and public places fill with players of the augmented-reality game, what is understandably a generational misunderstanding seems exacerbated by a poor understanding of what the game is and how it works.
Takorn’s statements reflected an improved understanding of the game since Monday, when he believed it was operated out of Tokyo by Nintendo. Still, while Iran announced a ban which has been ignored by Niantic, Russia has only threatened to do so.
The locations where the game are played were established several years ago by players of Niantic’s previous augmented-reality game Ingress, which lacked the power of a popular franchise to take off.
Those locations, many of which are landmarks or public buildings, were essentially recycled when Pokemon Go went live on Saturday.
Authorities want four types of areas removed:
But they’ve only been in extremely sensitive locations so far, such as the Hiroshima Peace Memorial in Japan and the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C.
