Journal Entry #5 (Paranoia and The Deep Web)

Hey guys, Missy here. I want to talk about something I just found out. Something unbelievably terrifying. Something that you probably won’t think is a big deal but is. Something that will most definently damage your sanity as it has mine.

Let me first say that my typing may not be all that good cause I’m typing this on a phone and I have a headache. Yes, what I found out gave me headache. My head was feeling fine until I learned of this. Now it’s killing me and affecting my typing. Thank god for the spelling suggestions. Secondly, I don’t know if I will be in any danger from knowing what I know. Yes I know I sound like a conspiracy theorist but I wanted to mention that possibily just in case.  I can’t guarantee your safety after reading this. The words “Deep Web” will act like tags to “them” and they will find this journal and they will begin to take an interest in me and quite possibly you. I hope that isn’t true. With that in mind, let’s begin.

There exists in the bowels of the internet a place of horror. This place is honestly truly disgusting and I hope that none of you find yourselves there after this. The place is called The Deep Web. Just typing that name gives me goosebumps. I feel like they’re watching me whenever I type it or say the name aloud.

Let me explain what the Deep Web is. I’m not too well-versed on it but I believe it is a collection of websites that aren’t indexed by search engines such as Google, Yahoo, and Bing. You can only access it with special software. Sounds shady right? Just wait.

It works not unlike Google I think where there’s a search engine and you search something up. I read a story on reddit (don’t you dare laugh at me) about a guy (Who I will refer to as Bob) who ventured there after “an acquaintance” told him about it. His friend gave him the software and something called a “hidden wiki” to help him navigate. I think the wiki was basically a blank page with a bunch of clickable links that, when used with the software, allowed Bob to access the “hidden sites”.

Now, as mentioned before, you need special software to access the DW. I’ve seen a lot of people mention something called “Tor”. I don’t know what the hell that is. Maybe someone could tell me? I’m afraid to look it or anything else pertaining to the DW up.

Now, you’re probably wondering what’s on the Deep Web that’s got me so spooked. Well if you’ve ever heard about it before, then you probably know what it is already. If not, then I’ll tell you.

First of all, the Deep Web is completely uncensored. Everything you see on there will have been captured in it’s raw form. There is no hiding from the Deep Web. If it wants to, it can and will find out about anything and everything about you, your friends, and your family. More on this scary topic in a bit.

Besides private information, the DW also let’s you purchase anything illegal that you can imagine on the black market. Though I wouldn’t advise buying anything mostly because I think it’s a scam so shady people can find you and kill you. Or worse. There’s also of course porn because…well porn. But it’s not normal porn. Bob mentioned a particular site where images of naked women were shown with EVERYTHING about them presented under their respective image. That’s just cruel.

Anyway I think you get the point. The Deep Web is fucked up. Which leads me to what I made this journal about and what I said I’d get to.

Information and privacy. It’s a beautiful gift. But it can also be a dangerous weapon if placed into the wrong hands.

What would you do if that information could be accessed by anyone who had enough time and patience? What if I told you that such a way exists? Well it does. There exists something called STALKER. Basically it allows someone to stalk you. Just by entering your name they get access to your address, accounts, pictures, etc. The worst part is that they can see you. Yes see you. Through your webcam. Or your phone cam. It scares me that with all of our intelligence, we use it for stupid shit like this. Like why do you care about someone so much that you would feel the need to stalk them like that?

There’s stalking someone and then there’s going too far and whoever uses the Deep Web for this sick shit needs to move to the sun permanently. Like now!

Anyway, it’s okay if you don’t believe me. I may be full of shit for believing in this, but I’m still concerned for my family. And my friend I’ve mentioned multiple times, who I’ll call Blume from now on.

Like can you imagine someone watching you and the ones you love through your camera right now? I can. Thus my headache I mentioned earlier. I’m really creeped out.

I hope the Deep Web goes to hell. After all, a place that features a website where you can write fan fiction about pedophilia or view graphic torture of real people and real mutilated bodies cannot remain running. Can it?

There’s no rest for the paranoid, so I gotta go.
