McAfee ties to QUORUM SENSING - the REAL REASON behind his demise?
McAfee ties to Quorum Sensing - the real reason behind his demise?

I have been asked to start a new thread on this topic. While I can't copy/paste everything from this other website over - due rules here; I think it's a good idea to use this information to dig deeper here at GLP.

Some info to get you started before you read the complete links:

John McAfee, founder of McAfee Anti Virus and would-be hallucinogenic bath salts manufacturer, has fled Belize for sanctuary in Guatemala. The Belize authorities consider McAfee a person of interest in the killing of American expatriate Gregory Faull. McAfee claims it's all part of a government conspiracy, and that the powers that be in Belize want to kill him; in response, Belize prime minister Dean Barrow described McAfee as "bonkers".

Since our piece ran on last week, several readers have come forward with additional information that sheds light on the change in McAfee's behavior. In July of 2010, shortly before Allison Adonizio pulled the plug on their quorum-sensing project and fled the country, McAfee began posting on a drug-focused Russian-hosted message board called Bluelight about his attempts to purify the psychoactive compounds colloquially known as "bath salts."
[link to getthetruthout.icyboards.net]

ok - so he went off the rails shortly after this project got the plug pulled. I thought I better look up what that was. Guess what the first webpage that came up when I searched on Quorum Sensing Project? Craig Venter's JCVI! Hmmm....

What is Quorum Sensing?
Quorum sensing is a system of stimulus and response correlated to population density. Many species of bacteria use quorum sensing to coordinate gene expression according to the density of their local population. In similar fashion, some social insects use quorum sensing to determine where to nest. In addition to its function in biological systems, quorum sensing has several useful applications for computing and robotics.
Quorum sensing can function as a decision-making process in any decentralized system, as long as individual components have: (a) a means of assessing the number of other components they interact with and (b) a standard response once a threshold number of components is detected.
[link to en.wikipedia.org]

Some of the examples of bacteria used for quorum testing in the wiki are:

Vibrio fischeri
Escherichia coli
Salmonella enterica
Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Acinetobacter sp.
Aeromonas sp.
Yersinia enterocolitica

McAfee's Quorum Sensing website - now taken down; but still accessible via wayback machine if you are quick:

McAfee was rubbing shoulders with some very interesting research. Did he piss someone off? Was he trying to stop an agenda? Why did he think the Belize govt was after him? Was he just nuts on Bath Salts? Seems an easy story to slap him with - considering the hype on Bath Salts in the media.

Interesting article that McAfee tweeted about from his QuorumeX Twitter account:

Quorum Sensing and Its Application to Computer Programming


This article is going to throw another idea into the pot about computer based algorithms with an idea borrowed from Microbiology titled "Quorum Sensing". Nature has been in the business of survival and evolution for billions of years, so it should come as no surprise to most that artificial intelligence and computer based design have been borrowed from studying the human mind. Now what do microbes have to do with how computer based trading is performed. A short-course in Microbiology will be required, but it will quickly be tied into how trading software is "sensing" its environment and how the common investor can use this knowledge to derail these trading patterns.

read the wikipedia on Quorum Sensing, Here is an excerpt from it related to bees, which have dies out by 95% in recent years:

Honey bees

Honey bees (Apis mellifera) also use quorum sensing to make decisions about new nest sites. Large colonies reproduce through a process called budding, in which the queen leaves the hive with a portion of the workers to form a new nest elsewhere. After leaving the nest, the workers form a swarm that hangs from a branch or overhanging structure. This swarm persists during the decision-making phase until a new nest site is chosen.

Interesting we have a recent phenomena connected to this dude who it seems may have been Breitbarted. Was it because of his possible cyber-security knowledge, or perhaps to research about this. Probably just a heart attack due to stress of his situation, but this is GLP and i have an imagination, that needs exercise. I come here to walk my brain



BUT if im not mistaken, this Quorum Senesing, is verbatim describing beehive abandonment syndrome, or whatever it's called. i forget exactly

Sorry you lost me when you called him a 'would be bath salt manufacturer...'

He put up some stupid post at bluelight and all of a sudden he's a bath-salt manufacturer?

The guy is worth hundreds of millions, and believe me, in that part of the world you CAN legally produce most of the Cathinone 'bath salts' anyway....I'm pretty sure even MDPV was LEGAL at the time of the accusation in Belize.

So this is all a load of fairytales.

I believe the guy, the government wanted a payout, he refused, they set him up and smeared him instead

As far as his Quorum Sensing research, he mentioned it on fat bullhorn guy's radio show, but it didn't seem like it was the REASON they wanted the payoff....they pretty much just demanded money from him from ALL of his businesses.

This is very simple. He started down the road of MDPV and other substances. He didn't have enough selfcontrol and the drug made him super paranoid. His obsession with being persecuted by shadowy government agencies that wanted him in prison or dead attracted those very circumstances into his life. You get what you focus on. One needs to be very careful when experimenting with the mind.

I think that personal psychology and how it reverberates in a local gossipy society, for good or bad, is Quorum Sensing too.

Re: McAfee ties to QUORUM SENSING - the REAL REASON behind his demise?
Mr McAfee, who lived in a $1.5 million beachside villa on the island of Ambergris Caye off the Belize coast, has repeatedly denied shooting dead his neighbour.

Officials say the poisoning of four of Mr McAfee's dogs may be linked to the murder of Faull, who lived down the beach.

Mr McAfee's creation of a jungle laboratory, supposedly to research natural antibiotics, and acquisition of numerous guns to protect himself led to suspicions about his activities and a raid by the Belizean Gang Suppression Unit (GSU) in April of this year.

"They claimed I had a big meth lab on my property – that's the most absurd thing," he told the Guardian. "The GSU has abused hundreds of people in this country abominably. I'm just one of those people and they've abused me far less than they've abused others."

CNN also reports that McAfee lived with a group of young women who are his lovers, and that although he has not been seen since he left his home after Mr Faull's murder on November 14 he is regularly in touch.

Belize thinks he's a tweeker...
