Ever wonder why our regular incandescent lightbulbs are lasting as long as they used to lately?
Well, it’s because they’re not as good as the new “super light arrays” known as LEDs (Light-Emitting Diode). LEDs emit light rays (790 Terahertz) that are 10,000x faster than the old light bulbs (300 Gigahertz) which use radio waves. Also, according to the TV, they’re better economically and environmentally. We are being moved from WiFi radio waves to— (drumroll please….) LiFi !
LiFi is short for Light Fidelity, a high-speed, bidirectional wireless communications technology that uses light waves from LEDs rather than radio waves.
How does this work?
I’m glad you asked. When an electrical current is applied to an LED light bulb, a constant stream of light is emitted from the bulb which we see as illumination. The current, and therefore the light, can be modulated at extremely high speeds, which is then detected and converted back to the electrical current, thus carrying data. In other words, information can be sent through these LEDs that we have been replacing the old incandescent light bulbs with.
Weird, how they’re all suddenly not as efficient as they used to be. Coincidence?
Why does this matter?
First, let’s talk about the Internet of Things. “The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.” (Thank you, Wikipedia! Fa95)
It’s the sharing of all of our information, particularly from our home appliances—day, what we have/need in our refrigerator—to the Internet of Things, thus letting those in the shadows know how much energy we are using with our appliances. (Btw, it’s not only items that are “Smart” either.)
They want literally everything connected to the IoT, so they can monitor every single thing that you do. As high-tech as all of this seems, it’s actually quite primitive, compared to the LEDs being in our house.
With the ability to send information through LED lights, they can broadcast their frequencies right on top of us. Keep in mind that our brains are receivers to these frequencies, making this a HUGE deal, much larger than a mere breach of our privacy. They can access everything in our homes.
The LED system acts as an instant tracking device, since each light works as a separate IP address, allowing them to track our movement through our own homes. Then, they’re able to broadcast data via light waves into our brains and our devices.
If you already have LED lights in your home, this technology is already accessible to the people in the know. If you don’t believe this, it’s actually been happening for years.
In 2016, it was announced that the government can use out household appliances to spy on us through micro processors embedded in every household appliance. Also, the CIA can intercept and access all of your information because of this.
The same goes with RFID chips used as a security device in wallets, which has been supported by a man with more titles than Michael Jordan, who also call himself a “transhumanist” (even though he also claims to be strongly against the advances of Artificial Intelligence), Mr. Elon Musk. Musk is also a supporter for RFID chips to be implanted BIOLOGICALLY, connected to the nervous system, as well as the Internet.

Yes, these are going to be required in order to live in future society. One won’t even be allowed to buy groceries without it.
Oh, I almost forgot… the other Dark Side of the Light…
A study published in late 2010 in the journal Environmental Science and Technology found that “LEDs contain lead, arsenic and a dozen other potentially dangerous substances. LEDs are touted as the next generation of lighting,” says Oladele Ogunseitan, one of the researchers behind the study and chair of the University of California (UC)-Irvine’s Department of Population Health & Disease Prevention. “But as we try to find better products that do not deplete energy resources or contribute to global warming, we have to be vigilant [about] toxicity hazards….”
Ogunseitan and other UC-Irvine researchers tested several types of LEDs, including those used as Christmas lights, traffic lights, car headlights brake lights.
What did they find?
Some of the worst offenders were low intensity red LEDs, which were found to contain up to eight times the amount of lead, a known neurotoxin, allowed by California state law and which, according to researchers, “exhibit significant cancer potentials due to the high content of high arsenic and lead.” Even the lights with the least amount of lead, such as white, still contain heavy amounts of nickel, another metal that causes allergic reactions with exposure.
The copper found in some LEDs can pose an environmental threat if it accumulates in rivers and lakes. This of course would poison the aquatic life living among them. Since LEDs are currently not considered toxic by law yet, the crews responsible for cleaning up car crashes or broken traffic lights can dispose the material and hazardous waste in regular landfills.
If you believe all this to be just some crazy conspiracy theory, do you remember that the idea of the earth being round and not flat was started as a mere conspiracy theory, as well as the Mafia back in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
