There was a real illuminati organization (the Phoebus cartel) that conspired to fix the life expectancy of the lightbulb in 1924 because advancements in production and technology were clearly leading to a zero-cost, infinite-life bulb, which was projected to destroy the profits and existence of the bulb making companies. This was one of the first stages in developing the current paradigm of global planned obsolescence that we are now all enslaved to (outside of Bitcoin).

Dark energy, dark matter and black holes don't exist, they're the result of dark science in cosmology induced by public subsidies.

tell us about this

I learned this from a French researcher Jean-Pierre Petit who is not supported by the French academy because he goes against the idea of black holes and dark matter by proposing an alternative model which would make all the papers that have been produced for several decades on this subject are obsolete, putting an end to the income that many scientists enjoy for following the mainstream doxa. Despite the lack of support, his model looks both simpler and gives more observational confirmation. It's been +70 years of research in cosmology that leads to nothing, the simple concept of "dark" matter / energy only serves to justify inconsistencies between observed reality and the LambdaCDM model (mainstream) The presentation of the videos and of his site are a bit "artisanal" because he does almost everything himself. If you look carefully on his site, all these papers are public and verifiable (higher math level) Long video on black hole :

Researcher's site with cosmology paper : https://www.jp-petit.org/papers/cosmo/
it's a difficult subject, if cosmology doesn't interest you, it may not be an accessible rabbit hole.

In the GSM (2G phones) protocol there is a parameter a tower can use called CRO (Cell Reselection Offset). It makes the tower more "appealing" to a handset so the handset will connect to it. Used primarily for congestion managememt. Creative minds can imagine ways to use this for other purposes.
Technology is neat.
