Is British Petroleum's pipeline story SHMOKE and mirrors?

By       (Page 1 of 1 pages)   No comments
What's the real mystery of the British Petroleum pipeline scandal?

The hidden language revealed by Reverse Speech points to a little known stress test.

Reverse Speech is a covert level of communication that is automatically generated by the brain when we speak. It can be heard when human speech is recorded and played backward. It can be identified by a trained professional and clearly heard by an untrained listener. It operates in unison with forward speech and it is complementary to it. In other words, the content and context of the reversal relates to the forward speech. Speech reversals are communicated and understood at an unconscious level, but can be brought to the surface in a Reverse Speech session. The Reverse Speech process is particularly effective in identifying incongruent statements, that is, outright lies or varying levels of deceit, confusion or feelings of guilt.

An interesting idea surfaced while I was analyzing NBC News Anchor Matt Lauer's televised interview with British Petroleum's President and CEO, Robert Malone. You probably remember, a vital oil pipeline in Alaska had to be shut down for repair. Mr. Lauer was suggesting that proper maintenance had not occurred in order to cut costs. While Mr. Malone artfully dodged Lauer's pointed questions about cost containment, his subconscious let slip an intriguing statement. The forward and reverse text of Malone's statement are as follows.

The corrosion program that we run on the north slope of Alaska is funded to the level that's necessary to prohibit the corrosion again

Made with shmoke, the bigger piece to this, here is the sense

When I first heard this, I thought it said made with smoke, which might indicate the use of faulty materials. However, Reverse Speech requires rigorous protocols, in which every syllable and consonant are accounted for. On listening again the word was clearly shmoke, which I took to be gibberish. Before dragging the sample to the recycle bin, I thought of doing a web search, on the off chance that shmoke was perhaps a middle eastern term.

Surprisingly, SHMOKE is an acronym for "Second-Harmonic Magneto-Optical Kerr Effect", a technique for measuring stress corrosion cracking of oil and gas pipeline steels. It is apparently a fairly new and perhaps less expensive test.

So, could British Petroleum have used a less reliable test, in order to contain costs and preserve profits? To my mind, that is quite possible. I must caution that this speech reversal is taken from a single statement, and I have not conducted a full investigation. But, how does that saying go? Where there's shmoke, there's fire?
