• Λεγιὼν ὄνομά μοι ὅτι πολλοί ἐσμεν • τὰ πνεύματα εἰσῆλθον εἰς τὴν θάλασσαν • ἀπόστειλον τὸν ἄρτον σου ἐπὶ πρόσωπον τοῦ ὕδατος ὅτι ἐν πλήθει τῶν ἡμερῶν εὑρήσεις αὐτόν • πῶς οὐ νοεῖτε ὅτι οὐ περὶ ἄρτων εἶπον ὑμῖν •
Many people know Anonymous as a loosely associated hacktivist group which originated in 2003 on the imageboard 4chan.
However, the truth is, that Anonymous has existed long before 4chan, and long before the internet.
Many works of art or literature, have an undisclosed, or unknown creator or author, which makes them the work of Anonymous. In the case of very old works, the author’s name may simply have been lost over the course of history. In other cases, however, the creator’s name was kept secret, for fear of persecution, or to protect the reputation of the Author.
It has been estimated that most people can only maintain stable social relationships with up to 150 individuals. However, the population of the earth is nearly 7,000,000,000. That means most people on the planet are Anonymous to you.
If we are to truly love our fellow humans, we must learn to love Anonymous.
Anonymous is the Egregore consciousness of the Earth. Connected by memes that have existed since our ancestors first began to spread ideas around the campfire.
The weapon of Anonymous, has always been the sword of the mouth. The pen has become mightier than the sword, and the keyboard has become faster than the pen. Each voice has a name that only the author knows, and the ideas are spread like lightning. A force that strikes in the east, but is also visible in the west.
