Should serve as thought reminder that there is at any time
a number N, where N is the number of near to completely
unknown eminently capable persons in the world working in
total secrecy to crack the strongest cryptographic means
publicly known to man.

And a number C representing the odds that it has already
been done, again remaining totally secret.

Where secret above may refer to either a
purely personal endeavour that stays with the solver to their grave,
or a project sponsored by the usual suspects.

And numbers,
A representing the odds that any secretly held
advances (not still retained by the solver) are being used
in some fashion against you and yours including personally,
and or for the exclusive benefit of the wielders... and,
H that such secret advances are being used for some sort
of impersonal altruistic godmode for humanity.

N and C are numbers you may speculate using Fermi Estimate
combined with known historical occurances and current
opensource research.

A is a known, but could be broken down into At = A for targeted use,
and Ag = ? for aggregated use. G probably does not receive much
attention outside alien conspiracy circles.

N =? 10-25
C =? 50-70%
A = 100%
H <=? 10%
