As i posted before these systems generate a metric based on the number of vertices including the star. That metric then generates a natural identity that the system converges back to in the face of any small disturbance.
It obviously looks like resonance but is integral to the whole system and is the natural stable solution available. All multi body systems will exhibit this characteristic.
Please reference my paper in Physics Essays (AIP) june 2010 to understand nth ordered metrics or nth ordered Pythagoreans.
Astronomers discover musical link to survival of newly discovered solar system

Some 2,500 years ago, the ancient Greek thinker Pythagoras pondered the “music of the spheres” – the notion that the orbital periods of celestial objects like the moon and the planets represent a mathematical harmony that is equivalent to a pleasing sound.
Now astronomers at the University of Toronto have gone one step further, showing that the same idea may be the secret behind the survival of a distant solar system that scientists say could be a viable candidate in the search for life beyond Earth.
We have been trained to accept alcohol use. I do not have a problem with that per se but also understand that it takes serious effort to actually adopt a protocol that allows safe usage with no risk of having too much. The best for most is a single glass of wine with a meal.
I already understand that the bad spirit good spirit issue is no figment of our collective imagination. We all are possessors of an information dense spirit body that can exit the body. This item informs us that it can be driven out because it has become unpleasent.
Thus the very real dangers of excessive alcohol conumption.. For most threshold is around several beers. That will vary depending on how much you havebeen abusing.. Pretty soon your spirit drops out as it has no expectation of changing the course.
Alcohol Consumption and Demonic Possession
Although it is mass produced, mass promoted, legal, and ingested by a multitude of people all over the world, most people don’t ever consider or understand the spiritual consequences of drinking alcohol.
Let’s begin by taking a look at the etymology of the word alcohol. Etymology means the root of the word… where it is derived from.
The word “Alcohol” comes from the Arabic “al-kuhl” which means “BODY-EATING SPIRIT”, and gives root origins to the English term for “ghoul”. In Middle Eastern folklore, a “ghoul” is an evil demon thought to eat human bodies, either as stolen corpses or as children.
The words “alembic” and “alcohol”, both metaphors for aqua vitae or “life water” and “spirit”, often refer to a distilled liquid that came from magical explorations in Middle Eastern alchemy.
In the words of writer and health enthusiast, Jason Christoff:
“In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence of an entity. Hence its’ use in extracting essences for essential oils, and the sterilization of medical instruments.
“By consuming alcohol into the body, it in effect extracts the very essence of the soul, allowing the body to be more susceptible to neighboring entities most of which are of low frequencies (why do you think we call certain alcoholic beverages “SPIRITS?”).
“That is why people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol often black out, not remembering what happened. This happens when the good soul (we were sent here with) leaves because the living conditions are too polluted and too traumatic to tolerate.
“The good soul jettisons the body, staying connected to a tether, and a dark entity takes the body for a joy ride around the block, often in a hedonistic and self-serving illogical rampage.
“Our bodies are cars for spirits. If one leaves, another can take the car for a ride. Essentially when someone goes dark after drinking alcohol or polluting themselves in many other ways, their body often becomes possessed by another entity.”
I became aware of this phenomenon years ago when I was given a spiritual vision. In this vision, I was transported as an observer above a popular bar and nightclub. Above the venue where a variety of ghoul-like entities.
Inside the bar were people drinking alcohol, socializing, dancing, and so on. I watched as certain people became very drunk.
I saw their souls, while connected through a thread, exited the body. I understood that the soul was leaving the body because of the great discomfort of being in a body highly intoxicated with alcohol. When the soul exited the body, other non-benevolent entities entered or latched on to their vacant shells.
Once the entities took hold of the body, they used the body to play out all kinds of dark acts, such as violence, low-level sexual encounters, destructive behaviors, rape, and more.
Years later, while reading a book called Man's Eternal Quest, by Paramahansa Yogananda, this spiritual master clearly explained the exact same thing as I was shown in the vision.
I began to look back over my life and remember situations where I saw dark spirits hanging around people who had become very drunk. Let me elaborate a bit when I say I saw these entities… I have had the abilities of clairvoyance (the ability to perceive things beyond the natural range of the senses… which can include:
ESP, extrasensory perception, sixth sense, psychic powers, second sight; telepathy, and more), clairaudience (the ability to perceive sounds or words from outside sources in the spirit world), and the experience of being a spiritual intuitive and empath since childhood.
I have the ability to see energies and spiritual manifestations that most people don’t see. As I looked back over my life I could remember many incidents of encountering non-benevolent spirits in the presence of intoxicated individuals.
I also have had experiences of looking into the eyes of a few people who were surely “possessed” by dark energies that were not their own.
I also remember a psychology course I once took. In part of this course, we studied advertising and the effects on humans. We looked at the advertising for alcohol.
A master teacher of this subject illuminated the fact that most alcohol advertisements are embedded with hidden messages and images – not typically perceivable to the common sight, yet perceived through the subconscious.
Knowing how powerful the subconscious is in our decisión making, feelings, reactions, beliefs, etc., the slick sales teams of alcohol (as well as tobacco and other products) used this sinister technique to trick us into buying their products and joining the societal cult of mental apathy and cultural obedience.
Many of these hidden messages and images were extremely sexual – working to influence some of the basest urges and primal nature of humans.
Let this example bring you to a place of curiosity and questioning. Why have the marketing teams felt the need to trick us and coerce us through subliminal messages to buy products that are harmful to the human body and to our soul?
How many times have you or someone you know, after becoming quite intoxicated with alcohol, behaved in a manner uncommon to them?
Perhaps you experienced the changing of voice, violence, sexual promiscuity, ingesting of harmful substances, destruction to property, conflictual behavior, and other negative expressions.
Consider these experiences and ask yourself – is this the manifestation of light, love, and positivity? Do these occurrences represent a path of consciousness and health?
It is a known by many that ingesting alcohol depresses the nervous system, kills brain cells, is toxic to the liver, weakens the immune system, and has many other harmful effects.
We are taught that long-term alcohol use can lead to unwanted weight gain, diseases of the liver, lowering of intelligence, and negative effects on hormones.
Drinking alcohol while pregnant can lead to birth defects, mental retardation, and deformities in the developing fetus.
Yet still, it is mass promoted and supported by our mainstream culture. Have you ever considered that alcohol is a slick tool of the supporters of the Matrix (global mind control and oppression program) to keep people on a path of disempowerment and sickness?
We have to ask why is alcohol legal throughout most of the world, yet in many countries, and specifically the United States, psychedelics are illegal.
The conscious and safe use of psychedelics or “visionary medicines”are known to assist in mind expansion, to initiate spiritual experiences where people have communed with the divine, healed numerous physical and spiritual ailments, increase intelligence, help to re-pattern the brain in a positive way, assist people in aligning with their soul’s purpose, and have inspired many people to create great works of art and other innovative creations.
It seems that these substances would definitely be banned and discouraged if there truly is an agenda seeking to oppress the human potential and keep us “in the dark” regarding who we are as spiritual beings, our innate potential, and the path to empowerment.
As we strive to heal, awaken, and transform our world – I pray that we wise up to the dirty trick played upon humanity in regards to alcohol. Non-benevolent forces have wanted to keep us oppressed, disempowered, and asleep.
How many of us have seen families broken and lives lost because of alcohol and alcoholism? Do you think it makes us smarter or healthier or overall better people?
It’s time to change things.
Top Psychiatrist: 'Mental Illness is Demonic Possession'
Let’s stand behind replacing the rampant abuse of alcohol with more health enhancing practices and activities – and learn how to live awakened and empowered lives!
Before I close this writing, I want to share a little more about the history of the word alcohol. There have been some people who look into the etymology and discover this explanation –
“alcohol (n.) – 1540s (early 15c. as alcofol), “fine powder produced by sublimation,” from Medieval Latin alcohol “powdered ore of antimony,” from Arabic al-kuhul “kohl,” the fine metallic powder used to darken the eyelids, from kahala “to stain, paint.”
Paracelsus (1493-1541) used the word to refer to a fine powder but also a volatile liquid. By 1670s it was being used in English for “any sublimated substance, the pure spirit of anything,” including liquids.
Sense of “intoxicating ingredient in strong liquor” is first recorded 1753, short for alcohol of wine, which was extended to “the intoxicating element in fermented liquors.” In organic chemistry, the word was extended 1850 to the class of compounds of the same type as this.”
Upon further research, we can find that in ancient Egypt, the eyes of both men and women were lined top and bottom with a thick black powder known as kohl, kajal, or mesdemet.
The outlined eye resembled the almond-shaped eye of the falcon god Horus observed in the Eye of Horus glyph. It was believed that this shape invoked the god´s protection and warded off evil spirits.
Yet if one were to dig deeper, as a true scientist, researcher, or truth seeker does, you will also discover these interesting facts…
Dr. Rachel Hajar, an accomplished modern-day editor, author and medical advisor, while researching an article on alcohol for her online medical journal, found additional meanings in ancient Arabic texts;
Al kol: Genie or spirit that takes on varied shapes or a supernatural creature in Arabic mythology.
Al kol: Any drug or substance that takes away the mind or covers it.”
The word alcohol is also linked to the fixed star in astronomy known as Algol- also known as “the Demon’s head.”
The current Arabic name for alcohol (ethanol) is الغول al-ġawl – properly meaning “spirit” or “demon”.
It is not a coincidence that alcohol has often been referred to as spirits. There is a deep history behind this intoxicating substance. There are layers of information throughout our culture, sometimes we have to look below the surface of things to find the fullness of truth.
I encourage you to deeply consider the information shared here, look at the effects of alcohol in your life, in the lives of the people you know, and in society at large. Make conscious, informed, and health enhancing decisions.
The more people who awaken to truth and seek health and liberation from mind control agendas, the more likely we are to make positive changes and co-create a world we feel good about living in.

What we have is is amazing. It is a reflection of the soul or even the spirit body. My own contemplation have led me to separate soul from spirit and also to understand soul as design, blueprint or master plan which we also strive to tweak by asking the key question 'is this good'.
More rigorously we are addressing the critical sixth operator implied in natural symbolic logic which addresses the validity of the other operators in their action of converting domain to range. We simply ask if the outcome is good or true. All this presages GOD.
That this has ever been written at all is remarkable. That it was written before any of our other texts says much of just how ignorant we have been. So much was lost and so much also not understood at all.
THE SONG OF THE SOUL
" I am the sleeper awakened from slumber. I am the seed of life eternal. I am the everlasting hope of man. I am a shoot of the Spirit Divine. I am the soul".
"I have been since the beginning of time and shall be forever. I am the design interwoven in the warp and weft of creation. I am the indestructible essence of life. I am the freasure chest of man's hopes and aspirations, the storehouse of lost loves and fulfilled dreams".
"Before time I was an unconscious spirit potential united with the Supreme All. Ever since time began I was in the slumbering sea of spirit, waiting to be drawn forth into separate mortal incarnation. Now, though the mortal body enwrapping me fall apart and decay, I remain everlasting and immortal. Through all the ebb and fiow of life, whatever destiny decrees, I remain the everlasting jewel of ages, invisible to mortal eyes and untouchable by mortal hands"
"I am the eternal bride of mortal men, ever awaiting the awakening kiss, the whisper of recognition. O being of fiesh, deny me not; let me not dwell in forgotten solitude, left alone, unwanted and unheeded. Hold me to you as a lover holds the beloved, reach out beyond earthly things and kiss the lips that are yours eternally. Look out beyond the sphere of earthly opposites, out beyond the pettiness of gains and possessions. Grasp and possess me, your own everlasting and responsive soul".
"You will not find me where emotional tempests rage, or while sensual storms bring turmoil and disquiet. First subdue these, for I await beyond, in the quietness of calm waters. I must be sought as a lover seeks the loved one, in solitude, amid quietness and tranquillity, only there will I respond to the awakening kiss of recognition".
"Do not neglect me, O my beloved, or tarnish me; for I come to you as an inestimable treasure. I bring beauty and innocence, gaiety and wholesomeness, decency and consideration, a jewel of potential perfection. Do not drag me down with you into the demon-haunted regions of darkness and terror. I am yours, closer to you than any loved one of Earth. If you spurn me, I go down to a terrible doom in darkness, there to be purged and purified from the corruption of your touch. The best I can then hope for is to be bestowed upon another".
[A spirit can be cleansed of a failed life. What remains is the shell and the pattern. In this manner living corruption is steadily reduced and real progress exists for the mass of souls. - arclein ]
"I am the sublime vehicle awaiting the command to bear your trueself to its destiny of glory. Could anyone be so foolhardy as not to cherish me? Without moving I am swifter than thought, on celestial wings I far outstrip the range of mortal senses. I drink at the fountain of life and feed on the fiiaits of eternal energy".
"What are you, my beloved, but a passing thing fashioned of clay? A handfiil of dust given life by a spark from the everlasting flame. I, myself, am no more than potential. Yet together we are so great that Earth of itself alone cannot contain us, we transcend it to reach out into the spheres of divinity. Take me, awaken me, acknowledge me, cherish me, and I will carry you to realms of glory unimaginable on Earth".
"I am the imprisoned captive longing for return to the freedom of the infinite. Yet, because of my mortal love I feel heartpangs of sorrow for things that pass away. But I know that beyond the pains inseparable from a sojourn in the vale of tears, there shines a glorious rainbow of hope and joy. There is a place of abiding love centred on the infinite; there, if you will but cherish me, we shall not be denied expression".
"I am dravm, by the law of spiritual gravitation, towards union with the Universal Soul and can no more escape return there than the mortal elements of man can escape their return to dust. Man sees glory by the reflected light of glory within him, he knows love by the love within himself The sun is seen by the light of the sun and not by any light within man. Man sees the spirit by the light of the spirit, and not by any light within his mortal self Only by the light of the spirit can the spirit of man be lit".
"I am at peace when awakened to communion with my God. I am joyful when enthroned in consciousness and when endowed with wisdom and vision transcending that of Earth. I delight in communion with the great sphere with which I am akin. I rejoice in union with the Divine Spirit from whence I came. I am your own trueself which should be forever cherished. By listening to my whispers, by letting your thoughts dwell on me and by knowing me, the whole glory of the greater spheres is opened unto you".
"I am that which reads what the eye sees, understands what the ear hears, knows what the hand feels, tastes whatever enters the mouth and smells whatever is borne on the nose. I am the indwelling consciousness which knows and enjoys all the good things of Earth. Those who dwell in the darkness of delusion cannot know me, and to them is lost the greatest glory of life. All conceptions of beauty, love and kindness are due to the consciousness residing in me. When I depart from my earthly abode I will carry with me the knowledge of the senses, as the wind carries perfiime from the flower".
"I am not bom, nor will I ever die. Once awakened to an existence in consciousness I can never become nothingness. I am the everlasting one who dies not when life departs from the body. O call me forth, awaken me from sleep with the kiss bestowing conscious life. Let me not lie unnoticed, vwapped in the heavy mantle of perpetual slumber, dreamless, unknowing".
"I am the indestructible one. Fire cannot bum me, swords cannot maim me or water smother me. When a drum is beaten, the sound it gives forth cannot be grasped or held. As that sound, so am I. When a shell is blown, the note it gives forth cannot be grasped or held. As that note, so am I. When a pipe is played, the music it gives forth carmot be grasped or held. As that music, so am 1. 1 am the immaterial in the material awaiting recognition, but in my own sphere I am the substantial one. There, man-known matter is no more substantial than the dawn mists are here".
"I am the fire of life in all things that breathe, and in union with the breath I consume the nourishing substance within the food which feeds the body. I am the kernel within the seed in the heart of all. 1 am the guardian of memory and the arbiter of wisdom".
'These things are mine and ever with me. They are to me what the bones and muscles are to the mortal body. The waking and sleeping consciousness. The awareness of self. The five powers of feeling and the five of activity. The controlling spirit, which is the sensitive being".
"I am the living consciousness within you, I am the knower. The things seen by the eye and the things smelt by the nose are received by me. The things heard and the things felt are registered by me. I am the inner being causing all decisions to be made, though the tongue report back outside the things that I, the soul and the spirit, hold recorded. Everything done and undertaken, such as the working of the hands and movement of the legs, all are done in accordance with my command".
"When I depart, the body without me is as useless as a worn-out garment which is discarded and cast aside. Do we go together, my beloved, hand in hand as lovers? Do I return home radiant in the pride of blooming consciousness, or, spumed and humiliated, return without sensitivity, memory or knowledge? Do 1 return to be welcomed with joy in the light of glory, or must I shamefully seek refuge in the darkness? I am yours, my beloved, do with me as you will. I am yours everlastingly".

There is in fact a hard solution to all this. It is the ending of anomimity. You will be wlecome to use handles as we all do, but it must be always possible to right click in order to review the individuals profile which needs to be independently authenticated.
That rule also needs to apply to securities tading and many other commercial transactions.
What this does is that it does not stop viewing porn per se but it stops material whosesource cannot be tracked.
The internet has made simple criminalzation an exercise in futility. Yet it can all be reduced to the crime of criminal impersonation in most cases if the system is made such that this becomes the only way to move forward.
Special Ops Veteran Now Fights Scourge of Child Exploitation
The Internet Effect
A Growing Threat
What Parents and Children Need to Know
Apps and the internet make children more vulnerable to online predators
NEW YORK—Kevin Tillman doesn’t consider himself a hero. But to many young girls and boys, he is their champion, an unsung hero in a dark world. His work takes pedophiles and child pornographers off the streets. And he helps save kids from nightmare scenarios.
Tillman is a computer forensics expert working for ICE (Immigrations and Custom Enforcement) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) in New York. He is a 29-year military veteran who retrained as a Human Exploitation and Rescue Operative (HERO) after retiring in 2015. The HERO program gives veterans, especially those who are wounded, a chance to retrain and fight crime in a different way.
Tillman is the first HERO in the New York HSI office, and he brings his special operations experience to his new role.
“It was very humbling to get involved in this and see that there’s this hidden society of people that’s so massive. I was unaware that pedophilia was such a large society,” Tillman said on April 28.
“I mean, who can question [cracking down on] child pornography or human trafficking—those are things most people want to see diminished, or at least depleted.”
A recent successful case involved an individual who visited a website that was being monitored. During a subsequent search at his home, child pornography was found on one of his computer systems. Tillman’s job was to meticulously sort through all of the evidence on the hard drive.
He discovered compromising photos between a young girl and her grandfather, who lived at the home with the father.
“The granddaughter was removed from the home,” Tillman said. “And it appears that the father didn’t know that the grandfather was involved with the child.”
The internet and social media have thrown open the door to exploitation on a whole new level. The days of plonking a child in front of the television to passively watch are gone.
“Now you’re talking about a computer and the internet, you sit them down in front of that, and that’s interactive,” Tillman said.
“If it’s not closely supervised, it’s an insurgency of evil,” he said. And it’s taking the time that people used to spend watching “Three’s Company” or “Howdy Doody,” he said.
Perverts operate in the shadows of the so-called darknet—often using the Tor network, which is an open network on the internet where users can communicate anonymously through “hidden service” websites, according to the FBI.
“Most of these guys don’t have any criminal history, and no one has any idea of what they were doing until we catch them,” said Special Agent Eric Campbell, who investigates violent crimes against children in the FBI’s Phoenix Division, in a statement.
Perpetrators are most often white, middle-aged men, and it’s very common that the victim is known to the perpetrator, said Tillman.
A quick scan through the FBI’s list of most wanted for crimes against children elicits average-sounding names like Gregory Whitehead, Bruce Sawhill, and Roger Parham.
As with rapes and sexual assaults—of which only about 30 percent are reported to police—child exploitation and child pornography are vastly underreported.
New York college student Robert Garneau, 22, was arrested last May, the day before his graduation, in an alleged “sextortion” scheme. He had allegedly chatted to three boys aged between 12 and 16, through the apps Instagram and Kik. According to court records, Garneau pretended to be a young girl and enticed the victims to send him a sexually explicit photo of themselves.
Once Garneau received the compromising photos, he allegedly threatened the victims that if they didn’t send a video of a more explicit sexual activity, he would go to the police with the photos or blast them out to the victims’ Instagram followers.
According to an HSI forensic search of the text messages, one of the victims alluded to suicide if Garneau sent the video out, writing, “Why I’m killing myself” and “Goodbye I’m blaming you.”
An FBI analysis in 2015 of 43 sextortion cases involving child victims revealed at least two victims committed suicide and at least 10 more attempted suicide.
Garneau was charged with three counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, each carrying a minimum sentence of 15 years in prison and a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison.
“Robert Garneau’s alleged crimes are the nightmare of every modern parent,” said Preet Bharara, then-U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. “Using everyday social media websites, Garneau allegedly exploited minors for his own sexual gratification.”
Sextortion is “by far the most significantly growing threat to children,” a 2016 DOJ report stated, and sextortion cases tend to have more victims per offender than all other child sexual exploitation offenses.
“Offenders create and share ‘how-to’ guides that discuss how to groom children to be sexually exploited,” the report stated.
Sextortion offenders typically threaten minors aged 10 to 17, the report said, but increasingly the threat is extending to even younger and more vulnerable victims, as the offender manipulates the victim to abuse younger siblings or friends.
Tillman said parents should not underestimate their child’s knowledge of technology. The first line of defense is for parents to have better control over what their kids are doing online and who they are talking to.
Tillman recommends that parents and children learn how to combat child sexual exploitation through the information on ICE’s iGuardian website. He also educates groups of children about the pitfalls of the internet and messaging apps, and the danger of lurking predators.
“I start off the iGuardian brief by saying, ‘My name is Jessica and I’m 12 years old and have blonde hair,'” said Tillman.
Then he asks the kids, “Do I look 12 and do I have blonde hair?”
“And all the kids go, ‘Nooo!’ and I say, ‘But you don’t know that.'”
Tillman said his fun introduction is to get children to understand that the person on the other side isn’t always who they say they are.
“I tell the students: ‘Never communicate with anybody you haven’t met in person; never give your phone number out to anybody; never enter into a chat or communicate with anybody that you haven’t already met in person.'”
Pedophiles can be crafty and methodical, and Tillman described an example.
“So you have a 12-year-old daughter who plays on a soccer team, and she’s got a Kayak chat Facebook account and she gets a message from another 12-year-old girl, who says, ‘Hey, I play for the opposite team, but I’m new in town and I don’t have any friends. Can we just chat online?'”
They develop a friendship.
Eventually, up to a year after they’ve been chatting, the other “girl” says, “Hey, I was up in the stands and I saw you at your game—you weren’t playing my team, but I came to watch you play. You were wearing number 7, you were wearing a blue shirt, you looked great.”
This person’s watching her. A year later, they want to meet in real life and want to meet at the pizza place. The other “girl” says “her” father is going to be there, and so the daughter’s parent says, “Well, as long as there’s going to be an adult there, I’ll drop you off.”
“That’s how meticulous pedophiles are in grooming,” Tillman said.
Tillman said the cooperation between local law enforcement, HSI, and the FBI is very effective and the agencies share information through the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC). The cooperation extends internationally, especially as so much exploitation happens on the internet, which is essentially cross-border.
If HSI in New York finds a child pornography site and a credit card used on the site traces back to London, the agency calls the HSI attache agent in London, who can then pass the information to Scotland Yard to make an arrest.
Steven Chase, 58, of Florida, was just sentenced for creating a website called “Playpen” in August 2014 on the Tor network, the FBI said in a statement on May 5.
Members used the website to upload and view tens of thousands of postings of young victims, “indexed by age, sex, and the type of sexual activity involved,” the FBI said.
The takedown of Playpen resulted in the arrest of almost 900 suspected pedophiles globally, and almost 300 children were identified or rescued from their abusers, the FBI said.
FBI Special Agent Dan Alfin said the investigation is ongoing.
“It’s the same with any criminal violation: As they get smarter, we adapt, we find them,” he said, in the statement. “It’s a cat-and-mouse game, except it’s not a game. Kids are being abused, and it’s our job to stop that.”
Most child pornography and pedophile cases don’t go to court due to overwhelming evidence, but in the ones that do, Tillman’s work is critical.
The images and videos that Tillman has to ferret out of suspects’ computers are disturbing, and it takes a special person to be able to handle it. Part of special ops training is learning how to compartmentalize, and Tillman said it helps him.
“You can get to the end of the day seeing horrific things that can’t be unseen,” he said. “I may not try to put it out of my head, I just try to focus on what’s next or what’s present.”
Tillman plays the saxophone, does some catering on the side, and leans hard on his faith to help keep balance in his life.
“Every time a new case comes through, it’s [even] more horrifying. I can’t believe it.”
73 percent of teenagers aged 13 to 17 have access to a smartphone, according to a 2015 Pew Research Center study.
46 percent of 10- to 17-year-olds admit to having given out their personal information to someone they did not know, according to a NCMEC survey.
Social networking websites often ask users to post a profile with their age, gender, hobbies, and interests. While these profiles help kids connect and share common interests, individuals who want to victimize kids can use profiles to search for potential victims.
Sextortion and livestreaming of child sexual abuse are evolving threats, according to the Justice Department’s 2016 national strategy on child exploitation. Apps can be used to target, recruit, groom, or coerce children to engage in sexual activity.
