The Snowden Chronicles

The Snowden chronicles recently revealed that mankind has developed the capability to globally monitor connectivity and store without bandwidth constraint the constituent text, voice, video, and GPS coordinates of virtually every transaction; the archived data to be processed by algorithms yet to be imagined. Such is the propensity of mankind for Omniscience, albeit a synthetic Omniscience.
And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:4-5).
However, Omniscience is more than just knowing, 'Scientia Potentia Est' i.e., “knowledge is power”, the ultimate power that comes from knowing the thoughts and intents of the heart of every cyber-connected soul on earth, a power that even the serpent never had until now!
