From Mohammed Merah to Omar Mateen, the progressive spread of the Jihadisphere shows the increasing pervasion and persuasion power of Jihadi “culture”. The Jihadisphere is expanding its borders, fostering the convergence of violence, xenophobia, hate speech, extremism and terrorism, transforming itself in a huge cyber-“hub of hate”. By turning inspiration into experience, the Jihadisphere is changing its original nature: it is converting the Islamic State ideology and propaganda supporters into “Islamic State of Mind” supporters. In the near future, it will globally interconnect vulnerable and atomized lone actors in “real world”, giving life to a sort of totalitarian “Swarm Wolf” intelligence. Therefore, in terms of prevention of the evolution of terror, the author underlines the need to deeply explore and understand the multilayered dynamic structure of the (cyber-)placenta where the “Swarm Wolf” seed is rising.
