Greg Herzog, a former sub four minute miler and conditioning specialist in New York City has worked
with competitive athletes, as well as individuals from the ages 5-94, and has made studying human
performance his life’s work. This extensive experience led to the development of “QUANTUM
MAPPING®”, a mathematical equation to predict and change behavior, as well as a Quantum Reaction

Edward Joseph Snowden is an American computer specialist, a former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
employee, and former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor who disclosed top secret NSA
documents to several media outlets, initiating the NSA leaks, which reveal operational details of a global
surveillance apparatus run by the NSA and other members of the Five Eyes alliance, along with
numerous commercial and international partners.
The release of classified material was called the most significant leak in US history by Pentagon Papers
leaker Daniel Ellsberg. A series of exposés beginning June 5, 2013 revealed Internet surveillance
programs such as PRISM, XKeyscore and Tempora, as well as the interception of US and European
telephone metadata. The reports were based on documents Snowden leaked to The Guardian and The
Washington Post while employed by NSA contractor Booz Allen Hamilton. By November 2013, The
Guardian had published one percent of the documents, with "the worst yet to come".

According to Snowden and his traveling partner, Sarah Harrison, he was unable to leave the Moscow
airport transit zone with a revoked passport.
He remained there until August 1, when the Russian government granted him a one-year temporary
A subject of controversy, Snowden has been variously called a hero, a whistleblower, a dissident, a
traitor, and a patriot Snowden's "sole motive" for leaking the documents was, in his words, "to inform the
public as to that which is done in their name and that which is done against them." The disclosures have
fueled debates over mass surveillance, government secrecy, and the balance between national security
and information privacy. Seven months after the NSA revelations began, Snowden declared his mission
accomplished, citing the international debate sparked by his leaks. A federal judge in December 2013
ruled that the government had "almost certainly" violated the US Constitution by collecting metadata on
nearly every phone call within or to the United States. Ten days later, a different federal judge ruled the

ultimately be decided by the Supreme Court. In early 2014, numerous media outlets and politicians

We know what people or things look like in human form, on MRI's and brain scans, but what would they
look like if they were represented by color?
Greg Herzog has created a Quantum Reaction Algorithm, using a geometric mathematical equation,
where X number of points represents the makeup of a subject and each degree of expression within the
context of each point is color coded and weighted accordingly.
The colors and meaning of the colors in the Edward Snowden Traitor?! COLOR CODING DNA® painting,
are as follows:
Yellow: Complex & contradictory, Black: Intense, Yellow: Unstable manner, Orange: Arrogance and
Selfishness, Yellow: Short attention span, Bronze: Self-righteous, White: Contempt for authority,
Bronze: Erratic behavior, Blue: Overly emotional, White: Compulsive
The COLOR CODING DNA® painting process is strikingly similar to the way patterns in Nature evolve.
Since its discovery in the 1960's, chaos theory has experienced spectacular success in explaining many of
Nature's processes. A mathematical system can be designed to generate COLOR CODING DNA®
trajectories, where the degree of chaos can be tuned. Many natural chaotic systems form fractals in the
patterns that record the process.
Herzog arrived at his equation in his own personal quest to understand himself, by researching every
possible scientific pathway of human development, Newton, Galileo, Jung and Max Planck. If a subject
was represented by a color or series of colors what would it look like?
Similar to Physicists and Economists or the Myers Briggs model, Herzog has written an algorithm that
uses a branch of physics that utilizes a Quantum theory to describe and predict the properties of a
He analyzes the Quantum data of the individual or subject, and then he follows a mathematical model to
identify and quantify relationships in the data to best understand the true nature of the individual or
subject based on the relationships.
