Information warfare will dominate 21st century conflict. Although information warfare is not unique to the Information Age, the exponential growth in information technologies during the past few decades has engendered heretofore unheard of opportunities for information exploitation. Properly conceived information warfare operations can be inexpensive, highly effective, and executed by almost anyone anywhere. Achieving information dominance over an adversary will decide conflicts long before resort to more violent forms of warfare is necessary.

Information Warfare and its Importance. Information warfare is not new, but the rapid technological advances in information systems has vastly increased the value of information in warfare, thereby intensifying Air Force interest in it. Senior Air Force leadership has focused significant intellectual resources on this topic.

While boring from within, the FBI and police also attack dissident movements from the outside. They openly mount propaganda campaigns through public addresses, news releases, books, pamphlets, magazine articles, radio, and television. They also use covert deception and manipulation.

" Since we are engaged in Revolutionary War in Cyberspace, it would behoove us who are actively participating to have a delineation of strategy, tactics, and operations of guerilla warfare eidetic to this medium. Our Guerilla Warfare Operating Area, (GWOA), is the internet, with its peculiar strategic advantages and vulnerabilities."

explaining cyberwar and information-related factors in military history. "The information revolution and related organizational innovations are altering the nature of conflict and the kinds of military structures, doctrines, and strategies that will be needed. This study introduces two concepts for thinking about these issues: "cyberwar" and "netwar.""

Humanity has always invested heavily in any scheme that offers escape from the body. And why not? Material reality is such a mess. Some of the earliest "religious" artefacts, such as Neanderthal ochre burials, already suggest a belief in immortality. All modern (i.e. postpaleolithic) religions contain the "Gnostic trace" of distrust or even outright hostility to the body and the "created" world. Contemporary "primitive" tribes and even peasant-pagans have a concept of immortality and of going-outside-the-body (ec-stasy) without necessarily exhibiting any excessive body-hatred. The Gnostic Trace accumulates very gradually (like, mercury poisoning) till eventually it turns pathological. Gnostic dualism exemplifies the extreme position of this disgust by shifting all value from body to "spirit". This idea characterizes what we call civilization.
