Deep Web and Dark Web Overview

Deep Web Browsing Series by Mutahar

Who is Mutahar?

Mutahar Anas, or simply Mutahar, is a YouTuber behind the channel SomeOrdinaryGamers. Having over 3.74 million subscribers, Mutahar is famous for his “Deep Web Browsing” series, where he goes through passages and dark corners in the Internet. He has set up a trigger warning at the beginning of every episode since their content widely consists of adult material and really disturbing themes.

The Allure of the Deep Web

Mutahar’s series caters to men’s growing curiosity about the deep web. The glamour lies in its being forbidden—something that, when out of bounds or wrapped in secrecy, arouses human curiosity by its mere self. For so many people, Mutahar’s videos provide a means to experience such forbidden realms vicariously, without the risks involved.

The Flabbergasting Discovery

A Walk Through Dark Web Sites

In a 2016 episode of his series, Mutahar started off at what he called a “standard hitman website.” Unsettling as that was, it wasn’t particularly surprising, either, to anyone who has watched more than a few of his series. He followed that up with a gambling page titled “Crime City,” which was a slot machine game of sorts.

Annotation: see “Mankind’s Habit”

The real shock came when Mutahar stumbled upon a site known as “Mankind’s Habit.” It contained numerous Deep Web videos and images. Curious, he began playing one video labeled “The peaceful sounds are lovely.” What followed was anything but peaceful.

The Horrific Video

The video opened with the sound of a crying baby, which was overrun with more ominous audio. Mutahar clearly started to sputter, gag, and cough. He would later say that it was snuff porn—a fetishistic genre of pornographic film notorious for scenes of actual murders, real or staged, for the purposes of entertainment.

The Reaction and Aftermath

Gathering his wits about him, Mutahar confesses that the content was well beyond what he was expecting. The video had to be heavily censored by him, with the disturbing footage blurred but remaining audio intact. In a post-video discussion, Mutahar regrets it and encourages his viewers to exercise extreme caution over the videos. He said he cross-referenced the content online, suspecting it linked to a series of Japanese ‘fake snuff films.

  • Commenter 2: “I for one am thankful for Mutahar being ‘obligated’ to blur the gore on the videos, because I certainly can live without seeing brutal things from real life occurrences.
  • Commenter 3: “The minute I heard that baby crying, my heart dropped.”

Ethical Considerations

The incident also raised an outcry over the moral considerations resulting from exploring and sharing content on the deep web. While he gives warnings and censors explicit material, the real act of seeking it raises questions about the morals involved and their possible psychological effects on both the creator and the viewers.

Dangers in Exploring the Deep Web

Psychological Effects

The dark web could even reach the hearts of people psychologically. The exposure to graphic and disturbing content might result in traumatic mental shock, anxiety, and other forms of mental illnesses. The reaction of Mutahar showed clearly that such content had the potential to affect anybody, even a person quite familiar with deep web exploration.

Legal Risks

This can also raise some legal risks when one accesses specific parts of the deep web. It is not illegal to surf, but it is when a user accesses or takes part in illegal activities that it becomes so. Governments are always patrolling the dark web, and hence any illegal transaction or participation puts one at risk of arrest and prosecution.

Ethical Concerns

In its curiosity and entertainment, it runs the risk of probably encouraging or normalizing harmful behaviors by content creators in exposure to dark corners explored and put into the limelight. One has to balance curiosity and entertainment combined with a responsible approach to potentially damaging content.

Conclusion

Although deep web harbors many benign even beneficial sites, the dark web is one of the centers for illicit and most horrifying activities. The experience thus, therefore, presents us with a cautionary tale of the ethical considerations involved and the awareness of the psychological and legal risks associated.

It warns of a time when people will want to explore the black side of the internet, leaving it only in the hands of experts who are prepared to handle the fallout that may arise.

Although the forbidden can hold high interest in the end, there are some personal and legal probable costs that should be considered by any individual planning to plunge into the dark depths of the deep web.
