On September 13, a fake terrorist attack at Northeastern University mobilized the FBI and Boston’s anti-terror squad. However, as the investigation concluded, it was all just an invention of Jason Duhaime, one of the directors of the university’s own Media Studio.
The curious thing is that Duhaime, now a former employee of Northeastern, wrote a fake letter (see in full at the end of the text) accusing Mark Zuckerberg of wanting to destroy society by creating a “metaverse” (yes, with “mete”). At the University, Jason was — get this — responsible for mentoring VR students and projects.
Letter from the “author” of the attack was in the Word of the university’s notebook
Early on in the incident, the FBI suspected that the terrorist attack was a setup. First, the suitcase where the “bomb” exploded had no “burn marks, cracks, holes” or any other evidence that it had been blasted — whether strong or weak.
Second, Jason Duhaime, who called 911, claimed his arms were cut by shrapnel after opening the “suitcase bomb”. Duhaime showed the officers minor injuries and bruises, but the long sleeve of your shirt was intact.
Well, there was the author’s letter threatening the laboratory director and the entire Northeastern University Media Studio department. The FBI could “do a CSI”, look for fingerprints on the letter and find the author, right? Not. The solution was much simpler.
One of the FBI experts found the terrorist’s letter in a backup folder on the lab’s Alienware notebook. The file was in .asd format, what is used by Microsoft Word to automatically save files every certain period of time.
This is considered proof that Jason Duhaime wrote the letter and printed it, closing Word afterwards. The lab director believed that the document would be permanently deleted as he did not click the save button. The FBI did not reveal Duhaime’s motivation..
Read the translated letter in full (including the exclamation points) — in bold the “translated” version of the spelling errors.
“To the Director of the Virtual Reality Lab and other MSO Lab Directors [Organização de Estúdio de Mídia da universidade de Northeastern]!!!! We’ve been told that this VR lab is trying to change the way the world is! Trying to put ourselves in a world where we only communicate through headsets and live in a land called METEVERSE! That we have images painted by computers through AI!!!!!! You are trying to change the fabric of people’s ideology! Trying to put us inside a f***** virtual world!!!! You are not the creator!!!!!!!!! You think you are!!!!! We know you are the antichrist sent to this world to change everything!!! We will stop you!!!

We know you have a lot of professors and students who come into the lab and put on headsets to have secret meetings with Mark. We know you are doing eye tracking and taking an artificial pulse from sidborgs. The robots you are building are walking around the campuses of NEU, MIT and Harvard.
