The Proteus Project Uncovered

Here is a sample of the messages posted to various (MANY) usenet 
groups. They ALL come from ...Organization: A customer of Pacific 
Bell Internet Services.. under different names and different domains.
They ALL...elude to having found the wonderful thing at a www site.
This is A SCAM to sell you a book or to take your money to sell you 
nothing.  The SCAM has been turned in sent to the appropriate 
authorities in the US for investigation. If science is real it will 
be offered for real. If science is a scam it will be hidden in a 
secret laboratory in a desert where no one can see the thing and if 
you want to know about it you have to write a check. I am doing this 
personally, not representing my company or its licensees, as a point: 

Since it is a personal message: If you sue me you'll have to prove the
machine does what you say it does. I'm willing to put my patent
technology to the same test.  But I would NEVER con people into having
to pay for something YOU say is so wonderful it can only be seen in a
printed book. The page mentioned also claims that drawings must be
seen in print because they have to be viewed from different angles to
get the effect. No one I know was born yesterday.

The following is directly copied from usenet file: (no editing)
anyone may search DejaNews for The Rise Of Proteus and get all 59
messages for their own party jokes.

This site at http://www.interchangelab.com is something you might want
to check out. These people are creating some kind of self-aware
machines or new life form. Pretty cool.

I found a very cool site at http://www.interchangelab.com. They have
this machine that thinks and learns on its own but it's not a
computer. Check it out.

I found this really interesting web site at
http://www.interchangelab.com.  It seems they are creating some sort
of intelligent machine but it's not a computer. It appears to be some
kind of machine life form. Check it out.

I found this cool web site, http://www.interchangelab.com. These
people are doing some pretty far out experiments. I got their research
paper and it blew my mind! They are creating a machine called Proteus.
They have another machine they call the Interchanger. Check it out.

I found this site called the rise of proteus. It's at
http://www.intechangelab.com. On the surface it seems innocent enough
but I found out they are creating a new kind of robot. I read their
research paper and it scared the hell out of me!

I visited the site, http://www.interchangelab.com a few weeks ago and
sent for their theory paper. It blew my mind but it also got me to
wondering about this new form of machine intelligence they call
Proteus. If it is really a new life form,  it may be subject to the
same astrological influences as a human or animal. This should be real
interesting.

You've got to check out this site, http://www.interchangelab.com. It's
entertaining enough as it is but I went ahead and got hold of a hard
copy of their research paper. If this thing they are working on works
out, we're all in for some excitement!
