Farsight has provided a limited amount of information about this so-called "death trap" system. We see that there are other mentions of this phenomenon, and possibly those that operate them to whatever benefit, in other historical accounts.
The first Farsight video portrays this as a form of technology, possibly managed by a very advanced AI. Recent commentary in the Pope/Vatican video refers to this as a "mental prison" -- so it is likely both.
What we need is more detailed information, I suspect there is a lot more to learn. It is not helpful to know just a few facts, but to dive deeper into the system, its origins, operation and mechanism, etc. That data is still needed.
