St.Thomas Aquinas Versus IQT Labs & CosmiQ Works ......


Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)  
The darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day. They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go. The devils besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated,They besought Him that He would not expel them out of the country. St Thomas Aquinas

CIA reveals Spacenet 'AI in the sky' that could constantly monitor activity on Earth via high resolution satellites  

It sounds like something out of a sci-fi film - an AI that constantly monitors the Earth, looks for unusual activity. However,  CosmiQ Works, a division of the CIA's venture arm, has revealed SpaceNet, a project with Amazon,  satellite mapping firm DigitalGlobe and chip firm Nvidia to train algorithms to work out what's happening on our planet. The project will create a giant online database of hi-res images that AIs will be able to use to teach themselves - and started with images of Rio during the Olympics. Daily Mail Read More>>>>>>>

Summa Th. I EN Qu.64 a.4
Article: 4 Whether our atmosphere is the demons' place of punishment?

Objection: 

1. It would seem that this atmosphere is not the demons' place of punishment. For a demon is a spiritual nature. But a spiritual nature is not affected by place. Therefore there is no place of punishment for demons.

2. Further, man's sin is not graver than the demons'. But man's place of punishment is hell. Much more, therefore, is it the demons' place of punishment; and consequently not the darksome atmosphere.

3. Further, the demons are punished with the pain of fire. But there is no fire in the darksome atmosphere. Therefore the darksome atmosphere is not the place of punishment for the demons.

On the contrary Augustine says (Gn ad lit. iii, 10), that "the darksome atmosphere is as a prison to the demons until the judgment day."

I answer that The angels in their own nature stand midway between God and men. Now the order of Divine providence so disposes, that it procures the welfare of the inferior orders through the superior. But man's welfare is disposed by Divine providence in two ways: first of all, directly, when a man is brought unto good and withheld from evil; and this is fittingly done through the good angels. In another way, indirectly, as when anyone assailed is exercised by fighting against opposition. It was fitting for this procuring of man's welfare to be brought about through the wicked spirits, lest they should cease to be of service in the natural order. Consequently a twofold place of punishment is due to the demons: one, by reason of their sin, and this is hell; and another, in order that they may tempt men, and thus the darksome atmosphere is their due place of punishment. Now the procuring of men's salvation is prolonged even to the judgment day: consequently, the ministry of the angels and wrestling with demons endure until then. Hence until then the good angels are sent to us here; and the demons are in this dark atmosphere for our trial: although some of them are even now in hell, to torment those whom they have led astray; just as some of the good angels are with the holy souls in heaven. But after the judgment day all the wicked, both men and angels, will be in hell, and the good in heaven.

Reply to Objection:

1. A place is not penal to angel or soul as if affecting the nature by changing it, but as affecting the will by saddening it: because the angel or the soul apprehends that it is in a place not agreeable to its will.

2. One soul is not set over another in the order of nature, as the demons are over men in the order of nature; consequently there is no parallel.

3. Some have maintained that the pain of sense for demons and souls is postponed until the judgment day: and that the beatitude of the saints is likewise postponed until the judgment day. But this is erroneous, and contrary to the teaching of the Apostle (2Co 5,1): "If our earthly house of this habitation be dissolved, we have a house in heaven." Others, again, while not admitting the same of souls, admit it as to demons. But it is better to say that the same judgment is passed upon wicked souls and wicked angels, even as on good souls and good angels.

Consequently, it must be said that, although a heavenly place belongs to the glory of the angels, yet their glory is not lessened by their coming to us, for they consider that place to be their own; in the same way as we say that the bishop's honor is not lessened while he is not actually sitting on his throne. In like manner it must be said, that although the demons are not actually bound within the fire of hell while they are in this dark atmosphere, nevertheless their punishment is none the less; because they know that such confinement is their due. Hence it is said in a gloss upon Jc 3,6: "They carry fire of hell with them wherever they go." Nor is this contrary to what is said (Lc 8,31), "They besought the Lord not to cast them into the abyss"; for they asked for this, deeming it to be a punishment for them to be cast out of a place where they could injure men. Hence it is stated, "They [Vulg. 'He'] besought Him that He would not expel them [Vulg. 'him'] out of the country" (Mc 5,10).

One Year Later Johnny Pulls The Plug Again! ALL Delta FLIGHTS GROUNDED


Remember this from last August?
Computer system outage delays flights out of New York City
NEW YORK – Travelers trying to leave a New York City airport Saturday may face signficant delays due to equipment failure affecting Delta Airlines, authorities said. The computer system that tracks planes is down in D.C., which has air traffic controllers scrambling to reroute flights around that zone near the nation’s capital, according to a Delta spokesman. That is affecting flights leaving LaGuardia Airport and heading south. Shortly before noon, departure delays were at 1 hour and are expected to grow, the spokesman said. An estimated time of restoration was not given. Read More>>>
Then of course it was resolved:
NEW YORK —The Federal Aviation Administration says the computer problem that created massive delays on flights throughout the Northeast has been resolved and that flights are returning to normal. A computer problem at a Virginia air traffic control center led to significant flight delays Saturday at airports in the Washington and New York City areas, the FAA said. Airports with delays included Baltimore-Washington International Airport, where departures were stalled up to two hours as of 1:15 p.m. ET, the FAA said. An unspecified problem emerged in a computer system that processes flight plans at the Washington Air Route Traffic Control Center in Leesburg, Virginia, forcing the FAA to temporarily halt departures for all planes at the D.C.-area’s three major airports, the FAA said.

One Year later this happens to Delta:
Q&A: Delta CEO on outage, efforts to ‘win back’ passengers Airline, passengers disappointed after long period without cancellations 
NEW YORK — Delta Air Lines is spending $150 million this year on technology upgrades, including a better mobile app. But what CEO Ed Bastian never saw coming was a vulnerability to its reservations and operations servers that would cripple his airline for days. A computer outage Monday morning grounded planes around the world, stranding thousands of summertime travelers left in limbo as Delta struggled to sort out the mess, its reputation as an on-time airline severely tarnished. Problems lingered through Thursday, and the Atlanta-based airline had canceled more than 2,100 flights. Thousands of other flights were delayed. Bastian, who took over as CEO in May, told The Associated Press Wednesday that the problem started when an electrical component failed and let to a shutdown of the transformer providing power to the airline’s data center. A small fire was partly to blame. The system moved to backup power but not all of the servers were connected to that source, which caused the cascading problem. Below are the highlights of Bastian’s interview, edited for length and clarity.

Hillary Clinton Possessed By Demons Of The Darksome Atmosphere? Or Blood Clot?

Voices will be heard in the air. Men will beat their heads against walls, call for their death, and on another side death will be their torment. Blood will flow on all sides. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

Is there a danger for violating the 29,050ft boundary established by the Blessed Trinity? I would say yes. One of the punishments for flying above this 29,050ft boundary, is being in near proximity to the habitat of Demons of the Darksome Atmosphere, making it easier for the Demons to possess souls.

Hillary has logged many miles on planes as Secretary of State. Hillary show signs of possession.

Hillary's behavior is similar to the bizarre behavior that Pope Francis exhibits.

LOL! MATTHEW ARCHBOLD Freaks Out Over Newly Found 2,000 Year Old Scroll With Spells And Demons Names All Over It! BUT WILL JUMP ON THE NEXT PLANE FLYING IN THE HABITAT OF DEMONS

"Our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against Principalities and Powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places." Ephesians 6:12
What?
2,000 Year old Demon Scrolls Discovered. Wait, You Didn't Read Them, Did You? 
OK. Archaeologists need to get out to the movies more. So you found a 2,000 year old scroll with spells on it? And it's surrounded by skeletons from thousands of years ago? And you want to build an electricity plant on the site? My goodness man, have you not seen A horror movie? I mean, seriously. The only thing you do with that if fill in the site with cement, walk away slowly, and kidnap the zoning board's family until the board member agrees that nothing will ever ever ever disturb this site again. But I guess as long as you didn't read the spells or mentioned the demon's names on the scroll, we might just get out of this without waking the dead or something equally apocalyptic.What is wrong with you? To sum up once again for clarification, you found a 2,000 year old scroll with spells and demons names all over it. It's surrounded by skeletons and you read it out loud???!!! Does that really sound like the way we should have rolled here? And here I thought politicians would be the end of us. Turns out it was archaeologists all along. More>>>>>>>>
But Matt will jump on the next flight flying over 29,050 ft in the habitat of Demons and think nothing of it..because EVERYONE ELSE is doing it!

LOL!
