Frumentarii - NSA of Ancient Rome

There is nothing new under the sun
Espionage in Ancient Rome
The Romans prided themselves on being a people who won their battles the hard way. Roman writers claimed that their army did not defeat its enemies by trickery or deceit but by superior force of arms, and for the most part they were right. The Roman legions could outstrip almost any opponent in maneuverability and discipline. By relying on sound tactics, strategic methods, and superior logistics, the Roman army made itself the most reliable killing machine in the history of pre-mechanized warfare. It has been estimated that the Romans' standard weapon, the gladius, or Spanish short sword, accounted for more deaths than any other weapon before the invention of firearms.

What need would such a people have for spying or covert action? Were the Romans exactly as they portrayed themselves–too noble and upright to resort to subterfuge? Was it only their enemies who relied on dirty tricks and clandestine operations? Although they wanted others to believe this, the historical record shows that, on the contrary, the Romans used a full range of covert intelligence techniques, as we would expect from any power that aspired to world empire.

I chose Ancient Rome as one example of the synchronistic dance between human Earth inhabitants and what is called "security", government surveillance or spying.

The Watchers
My grandmother was a Christian .. and as a little kid I would listen to her saying: God is watching you... He sees EVERYTHING you do.

I would think... If God is watching and sees everything, why is the world in such a mess?

My grandmother did not know that The Watchers go back to Ancient Babylon, the Annunaki and earlier civilizations on Planet Earth. Bibliotecapleyades - The Watchers

The issue is not what you do...
But what you do with it !!

The following story has been used as evidence of the role of the frumentarii: (Hadrian's) vigilance was not confined to his own household but extended to those of his friends, and by means of his private agents (frumentarios) he even pried into all their secrets, and so skilfully that they were never aware that the Emperor was acquainted with their private lives until he revealed it himself.

In this connection, the insertion of an incident will not be unwelcome, showing that he found out much about his friends. The wife of a certain man wrote to her husband, complaining that he was so preoccupied by pleasures and baths that he would not return home to her, and Hadrian found this out through his private agents. And so, when the husband asked for a furlough, Hadrian reproached him with his fondness for his baths and his pleasures. Whereupon the man exclaimed: "What, did my wife write you just what she wrote to me?" Wikipedia

The UFO community are not blinking an eye at the watcher revelations!!

Since I Was 15 years old and reading John Keel's Operation Trojan Horse / FSR (Flying Saucer Review). Well, at the time we were the most observed community on Earth...

The real issue is not observation .. but FEAR

Power - control - fear (... of a lower vibration).

The state of mind of the "observer" is more important than what is observed... Let me clarify !! Lets say one partner of male/female relationship is watching the other. The states of mind can be: jealousy, desire for blackmail, desire for power & advantage, fear, self-survival or perhaps there is space for compassion ?? Which path does one choose...

The fundamental human question is: compassion or fear?
