There's something fishy about the blurs on this image...
See how they all have sorta the same shape? They all consist of two blobs, somewhat triangularly shaped perhaps, but none of them seem to be the exact same (though that could be a result of their surroundings influencing the blurring process, or the fact that they were perhaps blurred by hand).
Given their similarity, perhaps they indicate a recurring element (such as Nexus terminals, though they seem too frequent for that in particular). Perhaps E.A.A. (or whoever did the blurring) first placed two blobs onto the text before blurring, creating this effect? Or perhaps they erased the middle of the text before blurring.
Playing with the image in Photoshop reveals what look like characters (D/B and I/T) in the blurs on the top right (it's more obvious when you can see the effect over a range of settings, but here's an image where they're as prominent as I could get them):
So... I think I'm going for the 'there was text but someone erased a line through it, then blurred it' theory.
