The Mobius Strip – Non-orientable
“We do not question or judge; we do not change our focus or approach; we deliver”.
I am often asked; “Why did we name our company ‘Mobius’?”
The answer to the question is not so much Why? – as it is What is ‘Mobius’?
Mathematically, the Möbius strip or Möbius band, also spelled Mobius or Moebius, is a surface with only one side and only one boundary. The Möbius strip has the mathematical property of being non-orientable. It can be realised as a ruled surface.
There are several linked aspects concerning the Mobius Strip to our approach to security operations, whether they be Protective or Surveillance in nature.
The first being that we are not orientable. On a non-orientable surface, there’s no way to consistently define the notions of ‘right’ and ‘left’ and anything that is slid around a non-orientable surface will come back to its starting point as a mirror image. It sounds mathematically complex but in real terms, the association to security services approach being, that we are solely focused on the operational objective. We do not question or judge; we do not change our focus or approach, we deliver – and with absolute integrity.
The second and probably more influential aspect is that with every operation there is the deliverance of measures to either protect or to gain intelligence, both of which have their adversaries. The Mobius Strip denotes the fact that within our approach, we have both sides covered – we use our experience, our insight and our unique government level methodology to ensure that operationally, we are thoroughly diligent.
“If you take a strip of paper, twist it and wrap it halfway around and connect the ends together it would form a sort of circle; – ‘The Mobius Strip’.
It has no front or back and only has one side – so if I ran my finger all the way around I get back to the other side.”
From the film ‘Möbius’, a 2013 Russian-French film about FSB and CIA covert operations, written and directed by Éric Rochant, and starring Jean Dujardin and Cécile de France
