I Christopher Eklund, and I am 42 years old, and I'm American currently teaching English in China. I recently started a thread over at BitCoinTalk.org located here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=288152.0 regarding a way I have discovered with 3 years of serious thought on the subject of compression to compress a file inside of what I would call "Virtual Containers" which are found in Nature.
The encoding process will then spit out a unique "hash" (although it's not a true hash, I'm not using standard any of the standard encryption techniques that you are familiar with) for every file you put through it. This "hash" or what I call "Crypto Key" is the file's unique digital thumbprint, and that key can be used to restore the file from out of Nature, where every possible combination of anything created already exists. What I am saying is this, you can send a Blueray file (say Lord of the Rings 3) at 50GB into this Virtual Container to obtain it's thumbprint. And then once you have the thumbprint code (the unique identifier of that file), anyone in the world can reproduce it by inputting the code into the software program I want to develop and recreate it at will. You would call this 100% lossless data compression sent to a Virtual Cloud server that exists in Nature already. You would think of it as compression, but nothing is actually compressed. The file is analyzed according to a few basic rules (it took me years to discover) to discover its thumbprint, and that is the same as copying it to a parallel universe that exists for everyone introspective of their location. A person on another planet 100 lightyears away could get a small Crypto Code and be watching Lord of the Rings 3 the same day, but no one copied the file TO him. The file was not actually compressed as you think of it as software engineers and coders. It is analyzed, and that pattern of bits it creates assign a Crypto Code which can help recreate that file anywhere in the world without having to carry the actual file on a computer or USB stick, or anything. The code can be memorized in your own head where no one else will even know you are carrying files that way. Imagine how this would help the corporate world from serious theft of their classified documents!!
I have been attacked for suggesting this was even possible, you can read the forum's contents there and see for yourself. But I am not a con artist, I truly believe this is possible and that I know how it is possible, and I would like someone to help me build the working software program so we can show that I have been right all along. In fact, I am here because some of the members did believe me enough to suggest I come here and try to talk with you, who are the most serious about this field of computer science research. Here is the original post, modified for this forum based on what I've learned along the way regarding how *I* should even see this theory. I used to think this was data compression, but what I am starting to see is that it is a file copying technique that places a file inside of a Virtual Container in Nature and by obtaining its thumbprint, one can restore the file from anywhere in the world without even owning the original file. Quite a scary idea, if it can be gotten working according to my suggestions!:
I have made an amazing discovery and spent a year trying to talk everyone I know into helping me with my solution for discovering the fingerprint of any file as it already exists in Nature (in the infinite permeatations of which Nature itself is capable), leaving only a basic Crypto Key that holds the seed which allows a smart software program I'm proposing the ability to re-create the entire file from scratch. Its a truly elegant solution, a truly stunning discovery worth millions of dollars possibly.
I'm just a teacher and don't have a fancy title or famous or powerful friends. I am just your average guy. But I like to solve puzzles, and I believed in myself, and I think that counts for more a lot. Imagine what we could do if you helped me to program this software!: With a software version of my concept, you could take your 50-gig Blueray version of Lord of the Rings 3, compress it down to a 4 Kilobyte file (the size of one nearly-blank text document) and email it to your friend in moments. What's more, imagine that this file, because it no longer contains any data at all, just a string of Crypto Keys (the chunks of data), your file is now 100% unrecognizable, scannable, or readable from any third party inbetween who might intercept your file. It's basically 100% unreadable totally compressed data. This is what I know I have achieved.
Starting in 2009, I began to have day dreams about creating something merely by thinking about it. I was looking around for ideas about something that could be created merely by thought, not a product of any kind, because I don't have those skill sets. After a while, because of my love of hackers, at first I thought I would create a game of some kind. I created an awesome game idea, one which would take all of those useless brain games and put them into an architecture that would make them important for solving a larger over-arching goal of hacking a mainframe. In the course of creating the game (and yes, this game idea would itself be worth millions if you knew everything it entailed), I came across a far more important idea, the idea of being able to compress real-life data in all computer-based files down to absolutely (just short of) nothing.
In 2011, I worked on it the whole year in my head while at my real job, my teaching job. I figured out a way to do it even then, but it was so tedious in trying to explain it to my one hacking buddy who was smart enough to be able to create the program for me that he just gave up listening to me. He wanted to help me, but I had no programming experience and wasn't able to explain the idea. I wasn't about to give up though, so I went back and thought about how to resolve my theory down to a distilled set of rules. I went from like 20 rules ... down to four. This took another year. I actually (whether you believe me or not) had a dream on December 21st, 2012 (the day the world was supposed to end) that showed me how to fix my problem with the theory I currently was working under. It was so easy, it blew my mind. Its so elegant, I believe my solution for copying all data out of a file is something that deserves to win the Nobel Prize. It might be remembered in similar fashion to Einstein or Tesla.
What Do I Want by Telling All of You This?:
I am hoping to find smart individuals who believe me about this, who have the means to start a company with me, a joint venture, of which I myself have no starting capital of any kind. I have always been poor, I come from a poor family, and have no powerful friends or allies. I'm currently trying to get started in Bitcoin mining to make a little money to finally begin forming a savings. My job is very very poor, I work in a foreign country. I'm sort of trapped here by the fact that 1) its the best job I can get with no college degree, and 2) America's unemployement is up to at least 20%, far above what is being reported by the corporate-owned media. It's too risky to return to America and try to find work. I must try to make something of this idea, because it promises to be my one and only shot at escaping my situation in life.
I am willing to share equally all incomes derived from the creation of my idea if you assume the risk. I'm hoping to find an investor who wants to take a gamble, but I am NOT asking for any money. If an investor wants to put together a team after we have had a chance to discuss the concept in full disclosure (after signing NDA's protecting the work), then you will already decided to fund the operation at that time, only AFTER hearing if it will even work.
I'm certain my idea about how to do compression will work, I have hand tested the idea numerous times, and am able to reproduce the original data merely from the Crypto-Code my theory generates. Every file has its own unique code even if there is only one bit (1/7th of a byte) of difference. That one Crypto Code can recreate the entire file, every last bit, out of thin air. It's not magic, its just a clever solution. The Bible says all things are possible for them that believe. Okay, I'm paraphrasing. But yes, I believed I could do it, and now I have it, and I'm desperate to create this and see it work!
Where Could This Idea Lead?
1) Reducing Internet Traffic Worldwide. Speeding up transfers of all datum. Imagine Sony PS4 letting you download an entire game online in mere moments, and then decompressing it to the hard-drive (might take a while to do that part) .... But the internet wouldn't suffer, it would get cleaned up in a massive way.
2) Government Uses
3) Every file sent over the internet is encrypted and totally unreadable as it is enroute (although it could be decompressed and analyzed later) but I have the ability to offer different virtual containers for every file (meaning just by choosing the container from amongst millions of possible ones) your file is encrypted too. The file can only be reconstituted properly if the Crypto Code and the base Virtual Container is known. The Base Virtual Container is the encryption protocol for your file.
4) Every file in existence can be catalogued by its resulting Crypto-Code, making storing a backup of all data online fit on one hard drive. The entire contents of the internet and every computer in the world could fit on one small hard drive in encoded form.
5) New ways to do old things, for example, recording video could be done on the fly straight to Crypto Code, leaving only a 4 kilobyte file for each video on your smart phone. When you get home, you copy the file to your main computer and it decompresses to the original-sized file.
6) Create new ways to store data that require almost no Hard Drive space for companies like Facebook and Youtube (the back ups, not the live files, because the decompression process is way too slow for real-time delivery). How many 4k files will fit on a 1TB hard drive, anyway? Each one of those files could be anywhere from 40 megabytes to 1 TB, by the way, filesize is irrelevant.
.... and just for fun:
7) One day, teleportation projects could benefit from being able to send a small packet of data that contains the entire DNA re-sequencing of the person being teleported. Star Trek could become a reality, because you wouldn't have to send billions of Terrabytes of Data through space, just send the small Crypto-Code packet (maybe 500K), requiring way less energy to transmit the actual data. Almost none, in fact.
There was a TV show episode about this ("Person of Interest") starring that guy from Lost ("Ben" the island leader) where they talked about someone who had done what I am claiming I have done. It was fictional. I was laughing when the TV show aired because I had already basically achieved the idea myself, but it had yet to become efficient enough to not have loopholes that would break the theory and keep it from working. Those have been resolved.
I AM ASKING SOMEONE HERE TO BELIEVE IN ME AND CONTACT ME ABOUT GOING FORWARD WITH A WORKING SOFTWARE FOR THIS!
This is real, and I need your help to complete a working prototype of the software and show the world what's been achieved here.
I welcome all of your comments.
