DN Claim: “In 2001 I was told that quantum-like computers were specifically designed and smuggled into the country which had the capability of accessing the internal dimensions of the body in order to spiritually kill and torture me. Apparently principles of plasma and 5th dimensional physics were misused. Afterwards these computers were sold to major institutions such as Carnegie  Mellon and John Hopkins University. This may be an example of one such computer. I am suggesting that the perpetrators who misused these computers, and others abusing me at this time, be used as subjects for any new experimentation that is to take place.” (May 11th 2009 blog post at 11:25pm, text added in modified entry).

Reality: There are no independently verifiable sources for Napolis’ claims, her depiction of  quantum computers and plasma/fifth dimensional physics, nor any involvement by Carnegie Mellon or John Hopkins University. The Apple Macintosh SE/30 is mentioned here in an homage to Don Norman‘s influence on product design and user experience. The Mac SE/30 is not a quantum computer (despite the Hypercard software as an early hypermedia system) nor is it powered by plasma/fifth dimensional physics. This suggests either Napolis is joking, careless with references, or is unfamiliar with the technological capabilities of mid-1980s desktop computers. If the latter is true, then her dystopian beliefs in computer problems, quantum computers, plasma/fifth dimensional physics, and inner eye-lid nanotechnology may also not be credible.
