      if your computer/iphone is your car, then: 1. your battery is your fuel tank. 2. 4g network is 2d highway 3. 5g is a 3d highway like in star wars. 4. a website is the playground or store you visit. 5. the deep websites would be like company buildings, secure power facilities. or military installations 6. the gmail account would be your house or home. 7. your youtube account would be your store or workshop 8. dark web would be like new yorks back alleys. 8. the NSA would be the federal police 9. hackers would be thieves and thugs on the street. the web is a civilization of its own.

      5G's Alternating Electrons force the Organic Molecules in Your Skin Cells.
      To Vibrate "Back and Fourth" up to 300,000,000,000 times a Second.
      And Molecular Friction (Heat) is Generated. But the Dangerous Vibrations can cause DNA Damage.

      They are only explaining the objectives of 5G and not the subjectives of 5G which is all in itself sold to the highest bidder to propagate the truth , oh look it’s just better no harm approach as if we care in place of the problems causes on molecular level of what does the MHZ frequency change effects the human while wanting us to accept change for so little of an return of faster speed , all hell is going to be for cell companies if this isn’t the turn out , people are no longer going to pay for the punishment they get and you do folks , this is corporation and as we pay them they use that money to lobby the politicians thus retaining control by way of your revenue that gave them the money they gave the politicians to harm you!

      Cellphones operate on frequencies. Frequencies affect geometry. Our body's

      atoms are made of geometry (refer to Robert James Moon the physicist).

      You gotta watch the youtube video 'Amazing Resonance Experiment!' to clearly see how frequency affects geometry.

      Even if 5G has trouble penetrating skin, the frequencies will still go

      through our eyes. Birdbox anyone?

      How about through our ears where it will be processed by our brains?

      Has anyone heard that this technology was invented in Israel and that they are not getting this themselves. I was wondering if that is true. Don't you love the controlled media telling us that we need this garbage when not one person in the comments or that I have ever talked to wants it.

      I found out what 5G stands for -


      I would be happy if I could make a voice call to someone else without any issues, but sadly this has still not happened.

      But in the future my fridge can contact my local supermarket and order more stuff I don't need.

      Progress! I love it.

      5g is a very different wavelength that is more like a microwave oven

      5g is so stupid they have to put these towers up every 100 FEET in your neighborhoods and pump the voltage output to even get the wavelength to reach into your homes.

      +ErisDrake Gaming 5G deployment poses more risks for mental and behavioral or psychological issues due to constant social media, information overload and gaming addictions than it would for maximum permissible exposure. Please have your facts straight before assuming that radiated power is twice than 4G - it's actually less and but more frequency bandwidth in the 3 frequency bands: sub-1 GHz, mid-band 10 Ghz, to high-band 24+ GHz

      5G is a much faster version of the average mobile speed of 4G,
      like the man in the video said you could download a 2 hour HD film in 0.001 seconds with 5G while 4G takes 6 minutes.
      The only major problem with this is that the 5G radiowaves are so strong that the chances of you getting cancer are almost doubled depending on where you live.
