Did Japan try to develop an "ultimate weapon" in response to the August, 1998 overflight of a North Korean Taepo-Dong ballistic missile? According to a CIA document leaked to the press today, the answer is yes. The document, entitled "Theopotential Technology Development In Japan: An Intelligence Retrospective", details the clandestine effort of the Japanese military to develop a weapon of "godlike" power in response to the DPRK missile launch. The secret weapons program, named Saishu Heiki ("Ultimate Weapon Development Project", or UWDP), was initiated in May of 2000 by "elements at the highest levels of Japan's military, industrial, and intelligence hierarchies". Its apparent goal was developing a weapon of theopotential ("godlike") power -- a weapon so potent that its deployment would render pointless any and all weapons development by any other nation or combination of nations for all time.

According to the heavily-redacted CIA report, the UWDP delivered its initial program for development of the theopotential weapon to unidentified authorities in Tokyo on 25 December 2001. The program identified a theoretical approach to the weapon's design and a contained a draft proposal for its development. Although the details of the weapon's basic principles have been deleted from the CIA report, the proposed weapon system was apparently based upon a "well-supported" phenomenon "common to all cultures", although it remains unclear what a cultural phenomenon could have to do with a weapon of mass destruction. The CIA report also refers to the weapon cryptically as an "ontological bomb", although the meaning of the term is left unexplained. (Ontology is a term coined by the Greek philosopher Aristotle to refer to the philosophical study of the nature of being, existence, and reality.) According to the CIA documents, the authorities approved the UWDP's proposal and initiated a crash development program known as PON CHISE, or Operation WINDHOUSE, to develop the weapon itself.

The truly alarming section of the document details the response of the United States and its NATO allies to their discovery of WINDHOUSE. Although the report again omits crucial details, such as the exact means by which the WINDHOUSE project was discovered to exist, it does outline in chilling detail a series of actions conducted at the highest levels of the Alliance as a result of that discovery. Citing the "almost-unimaginable risks" associated with the development of a theopotential weapon, the CIA documents tell of an emergency meeting in Mons, Belgium in January 2002 between U.S. military commanders, those of the NATO allies, and "representatives" of eleven other non-NATO states, along with eight unidentified non-state organizations. (One copy of the CIA report lists the Holy See as having been one of these.) In this and subsequent meetings, the Allies and their associates formulated diplomatic and military plans of action intended to forestall further Japanese activity on WINDHOUSE. In early February, these parties signed a secret "Treaty on the Research and Development of Ontological Technologies" known as the SUMUS Treaty; soon afterward, Treaty operations were transferred from Mons to an unidentified "Special Facility" deemed most likely to survive in the event of a "catastrophe" -- likewise unidentified.

In its final, heavily blacked-out paragraphs, the leaked document hints at the fantastic nature and apocalyptic power of the proposed theopotential weapon. The weapon's operating principle is said to be somehow "philosophical" in nature, involving the power to "rewrite the 'source code' of the universe" and "disrupt the ontological 'is-ness'" of its target. A possibly-human "implantee" is mentioned, one with an ability to manifest both conventional and nuclear weapons "out of thin air". The report's final words tell blackly of a "subsummation of ego" and "two young volunteers" but does not reveal what these phrases might mean in the context of the project

Officials at the CIA, the Pentagon, NATO, and the Japan Ministry of Defense have each denied any knowledge of an Ultimate Weapon Development Program, PON CHISE, WINDHOUSE, or any research into theopotential or ontological weapons. The documents, which were provided anonymously to an Associated Press reporter in Sapporo, Japan in late 2009, have not yet been authenticated by any government authority.

My guess is Saikano.

Nicely done.
