Mind Invasive Technology of CIA and NSA Illuminati

We have failed to comprehend that the result of the technology that
originated in the years of the arms race between the Soviet Union and
the West, has resulted in using satellite technology not only for
surveillance and communication systems but also to lock on to human
beings, manipulating brain frequencies by directing laser beams,
neural-particle beams, electro-magnetic radiation, sonar waves,
radiofrequency radiation (RFR), soliton waves, torsion fields and by
use of these or other energy fields which form the areas of study for
astro-physics. Since the operations are characterised by secrecy, it
seems inevitable that the methods that we do know about, that is, the
exploitation of the ionosphere, our natural shield, are already
outdated as we begin to grasp the implications of their use.
[Excerpt]

For those of us who were trained in a psychoanalytical approach to the
patient which was characterised as patient centred, and which
acknowledged that the effort to understand the world of the other
person entailed an awareness that the treatment was essentially one of
mutuality and trust, the American Psychiatry Association’s Diagnostic
Criteria for Schizotypal personality was always a cause for alarm. The
Third Edition (1987) of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental
Disorders (DSM) required that there be at least four of the
characteristics set out for a diagnosis of schizophrenia, and an
approved selection of four could be: magical thinking, telepathy or
sixth sense; limited social contact; odd speech; and over-sensitivity
to criticism. By 1994, the required number of qualifying
characteristics were reduced to two or more, including, say,
hallucinations and negative symptoms such as affective flattening,
or disorganised or incoherent speech or only one if the delusions
were bizarre or the hallucination consisted of a voice keeping up a
running commentary on the person’s behaviour or thoughts. The next
edition of the DSM is not due until the year 2010.

In place of a process of a labelling which brought alienation and
often detention, sectioning, and mind altering anti-psychotic
medication, many psychoanalysts and psychotherapists felt that even in
severe cases of schizoid withdrawal we were not necessarily wasting
our time in attempting to restore health by the difficult work of
unravelling experiences in order to make sense of an illness. In this
way, psychoanalysis has been, in its most radical form, a critic of a
society, which failed to exercise imaginative empathy when passing
judgement on people. The work of Harry Stack Sullivan, Frieda
Fromm-Reichmann, Harold Searles or R.D. Laing, all trained as
psychiatrists and all of them rebels against the standard procedures
provided a way of working with people very different from the
psychiatric model, which seemed to encourage a society to repress its
sickness by making a clearly split off group the carriers of it. A
psychiatrist in a mental hospital once joked to me, with some truth,
when I commented on the number of carrier bags carried by many of the
medicated patients around the hospital grounds, that they assessed the
progress of the patient in terms of the reduction of the number of
carrier bags. It is too often difficult to believe, however, when
hearing the history of a life, that the “schizophrenic” was not
suffering the effects of having been made, consciously and
unconsciously, the carefully concealed carrier of the ills of the
family.

For someone who felt his mind was going to pieces, to be put into the
stressful situation of the psychiatric examination, even when the
psychiatrist acquitted himself with kindness, the situation of the
assessment procedure itself, can be an effective way to drive someone
crazy, or more crazy. (Laing, 1985, p 17). But if the accounting of
bizarre experiences more or less guaranteed you a new label or a trip
to the psychiatric ward, there is even more reason for a new group of
people to be outraged about how their symptoms are being diagnosed. A
doubly cruel sentence is being imposed on people who are the victims
of the most appalling abuse by scientific-military experiments, and a
totally uncomprehending society is indifferent to their evidence. For
the development of a new class of weaponry now has the capability of
entering the brain and mind and body of another person by
technological means.

Harnessing neuroscience to military capability, this technology is the
result of decades of research and experimentation, most particularly
in the Soviet Union and the United States. (Welsh, 1997, 2000) We have
failed to comprehend that the result of the technology that originated
in the years of the arms race between the Soviet Union and the West,
has resulted in using satellite technology not only for surveillance
and communication systems but also to lock on to human beings,
manipulating brain frequencies by directing laser beams,
neural-particle beams, electro-magnetic radiation, sonar waves,
radiofrequency radiation (RFR), soliton waves, torsion fields and by
use of these or other energy fields which form the areas of study for
astro-physics. Since the operations are characterised by secrecy, it
seems inevitable that the methods that we do know about, that is, the
exploitation of the ionosphere, our natural shield, are already
outdated as we begin to grasp the implications of their use. The
patents deriving from Bernard J. Eastlund’s work provide the ability
to put unprecedented amounts of power in the Earth’s atmosphere at
strategic locations and to maintain the power injection level,
particularly if random pulsing is employed, in a manner far more
precise and better controlled than accomplished by the prior art, the
detonation of nuclear devices at various yields and various altitudes.
(ref High Frequency Active Auroral Research Project, HAARP).

Some patents, now owned by Raytheon, describe how to make nuclear
sized explosions without radiation and describe power beam systems,
electromagnetic pulses and over-the-horizon detection systems. A more
disturbing use is the system developed for manipulating and disturbing
the human mental process using pulsed radio frequency radiation (RFR),
and their use as a device for causing negative effects on human health
and thinking. The victim, the innocent civilian target is locked on
to, and unable to evade the menace by moving around. The beam is
administered from space. The Haarp facility as military technology
could be used to broadcast global mind-control, as a system for
manipulating and disturbing the human mental process using pulsed
radio frequency (RFR). The super-powerful radio waves are beamed to
the ionosphere, heating those areas, thereby lifting them. The
electromagnetic waves bounce back to the earth and penetrate human
tissue.

Dr Igor Smirnov, of the Institute of Psycho-Correction in Moscow,
says: It is easily conceivable that some Russian “Satan,” or let’s
say Iranian or any other “Satan”, as long as he owns the appropriate
means and finances, can inject himself into every conceivable computer
network, into every conceivable radio or television broadcast, with
relative technological ease, even without disconnecting cables and
intercept the radio waves in the ether and modulate every conceivable
suggestion into it. This is why such technology is rightfully
feared. (German TV documentary, 1998).

If we were concerned before about diagnostic criteria being imposed
according to the classification of recognizable symptoms, we have
reason now to submit them to even harsher scrutiny. The development
over the last decades since the Cold War arms race has included as a
major strategic category, psycho-electronic weaponry, the ultimate aim
of which is to enter the brain and mind. Unannounced, undebated and
largely unacknowledged by scientists or by the governments who employ
the technology to enter and control minds from a distance has been
unleashed upon us. The only witnesses who are speaking about this
terrible technology with its appalling implications for the future,
are the victims themselves and those who are given the task of
diagnosing mental illness are attempting to silence them by
classifying their evidence and accounts as the symptoms of
schizophrenia, while the dispensers of psychic mutilation and
programmed pain continue with their work, aided and unopposed.

If it was always crucial, under the threat of psychiatric sectioning,
to carefully screen out any sign of confused speech, negativity,
coldness, suspicion, bizarre thoughts, sixth sense, telepathy,
premonitions, but above all the sense that others can feel my
feelings, and that someone seemed to be keeping up a running
commentary on your thoughts and behaviour, then reporting these to a
psychiatrist, or anyone else for that matter who was not of a mind to
believe that such things as mind-control could exist, would be the end
of your claim to sanity and probably your freedom. For one of the
salient characteristics of mind-control is the running commentary,
which replicates so exactly, and surely not without design, the
symptoms of schizophrenia. Part of the effort is to remind the victim
that they are constantly under control or surveillance. Programmes
vary, but common forms of reminders are electronic prods and nudges,
body noises, twinges and cramps to all parts of the body, increasing
heart beats, applying pressures to internal organs all with a
personally codified system of comments on thoughts and events,
designed to create stress, panic and desperation. This is mind control
at its most benign. There is reason to fear the use of beamed energy
to deliver lethal assaults on humans, including cardiac arrest, and
bleeding in the brain.

It is the government system of secrecy, which has facilitated this
appalling prospect. There have been warning voices. the government
secrecy system as a whole is among the most poisonous legacies of the
Cold War the Cold War secrecy (which) also mandate(s) Active
Deception a security manual for special access programs authorizing
contractors to employ cover stories to disguise their activities. The
only condition is that cover stories must be believable. (Aftergood &
Rosenberg, 1994; Bulletin of Atomic Scientist). Paranoia has been
aided and abetted by government intelligence agencies.

In the United Kingdom the fortifications against any disturbing
glimmer of awareness of such actual or potential outrages against
human rights and social and political abuses seem to be cast in
concrete. Complete with crenellations, ramparts and parapets, the
stronghold of nescience reigns supreme. To borrow Her Majesty the
Queen’s recent observation: “There are forces at work of which we are
not aware.” One cannot say that there is no British Intelligence on
the matter, as it is quite unfeasible that the existence of the
technology is not classified information. Indeed it is a widely held
belief that the women protesting against the presence of cruise
missiles at Greenham Common were victims of electro-magnetic radiation
at gigahertz frequency by directed energy weapons, and that their
symptoms, including cancer, were consistent with such radiation
effects as reported by Dr Robert Becker who has been a constantly
warning voice against the perils of electro-magnetic radiation. The
work of Allen Frey suggests that we should consider radiation effects
as a grave hazard producing increased permeability of the blood-brain
barrier, and weakening crucial defenses of the central nervous system
against toxins. (Becker, 1985, p. 286). Dr Becker has written about
nuclear magnetic resonance as a familiar tool in medecine known as
magnetic resonance imaging or MRI. Calcium efflux is the result of
cyclotronic resonance which latter can be explained thus: If a
charged particle or ion is exposed to a steady magnetic field in
space, it will begin to go into a circular or orbital, motion at right
angles to the applied magnetic field.The speed with which it orbits
will be determined by the ratio between the charge and the mass of the
particle and by the strength of the magnetic field. (Becker,
1990,p.235) The implications of this for wide scale aggression by
using a combination of radar based energy and the use of nuclear
resonating are beyond the scope of the writer, but appear to be worth
the very serious consideration of physicists in assessing how they
might be used against human beings.

Amongst medical circles, however, it has so far not been possible for
the writer to find a neuroscientist, neurologist or a psychiatrist,
nor for that matter, a general medical practitioner, who acknowledges
even the potential for technological manipulation of the nervous
system as a problem requiring their professional interest. There has
been exactly this response from some of England’s most eminent
practitioners of the legal profession, not surprisingly, because the
information about such technology is not made available to them. They
would refer anyone attempting to communicate mind- harassment as a
psychiatric problem, ignoring the crime that is being committed.

The aim here is not to attempt a comprehensive history and development
of the technology of mind control. These very considerable tasks
which have to be done under circumstances of the most extreme
difficulty have been addressed with clarity and courage by others,
who live with constant harm and threats, not least of all contemptuous
labelling. Their work can be readily accessed on the internet
references given at the end of this paper. For a well-researched
outline of the historical development of electro-magnetic technology
the reader should refer to the timeline of dates and electromagnetic
weapon development by Cheryl Welsh, president of Citizens against
Human Rights Abuse. (Welsh 1997; 2001). There are at least one and a
half thousand people worldwide who state they are being targeted.
Mojmir Babacek, now domiciled in his native Czech Republic, after
eight years of residence in the United States in the eighties, has
made a painstakingly meticulous review of the technology, and
continues his research. (Babacek 1998, 2002)

We are concerned here with reinforcing in the strongest possible
terms:

i) The need for such abuses to human rights and the threats to
democracy to be called to consciousness, and without further delay.

ii) To analyse the reasons why people might defend themselves from
becoming conscious of the existence of such threats.

iii) To address the urgent need for intelligence, imagination, and
information not to mention compassion in dealing with the
victims of persecution from this technology, and

iv) To alert a sleeping society, to the imminent threats to their
freedom from the threat from fascist and covert operations who have in
all probability gained control of potentially lethal weaponry of the
type we are describing.

It is necessary to emphasise that at present there is not even the
means for victims to gain medical attention for the effects of
radiation from this targeting. Denied the respect of credulity of
being used as human guinea pigs, driven to suicide by the breakdown of
their lives, they are treated as insane at best regarded as “sad
cases”. Since the presence of a permanent “other” in one’s mind and
body is by definition an act of the most intolerable cruelty, people
who are forced to bear it but who refuse to be broken by it, have no
other option than to turn themselves into activists, their lives
consumed by the battle against such atrocities, their energies
directed to alerting and informing the public of things they don”t
want to hear or understand about evil forces at work in their society.
It is necessary, at this point, to briefly outline a few one might
say the precious few attempts by public servants to verify the
existence and dangers inherent in this field:

? In January 1998, an annual public meeting of the French National
Bioethics Committee was held in Paris. Its chairman, Jean-Pierre
Changeux, a neuroscientist at the Institut Pasteur in Paris, told the
meeting that advances in cerebral imaging make the scope for invasion
of privacy immense. Although the equipment needed is still highly
specialized, it will become commonplace and capable of being used at a
distance. That will open the way for abuses such as invasion of
personal liberty, control of behaviour and brainwashing. These are far
from being science-fiction concerns and constitute a serious risk to
society. (Nature. Vol 391, 1998.

In January 1999, the European Parliament passed a resolution where
it calls for an international convention introducing a global ban on
all development and deployment of weapons which might enable any form
of manipulation of human beings. It is our conviction that this ban
can not be implemented without the global pressure of the informed
general public on the governments. Our major objective is to get
across to the general public the real threat which these weapons
represent for human rights and democracy and to apply pressure on the
governments and parliaments around the world to enact legislature
which would prohibit the use of these devices to both government and
private organisations as well as individuals. (Plenary
sessions/Europarliament, 1999)

In October 2001, Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich introduced a bill
to the House of Representatives which, it was hoped would be extremely
important in the fight to expose and stop psycho-electronic mind
control experimentation on involuntary, non-consensual citizens. The
Bill was referred to the Committee on Science, and in addition to the
Committee on Armed Services and International Relations. In the
original bill a ban was sought on “exotic weapons” including
electronic, psychotronic or information weapons, chemtrails, particle
beams, plasmas, electromagnetic radiation, extremely low frequency
(ELF) or ultra low frequency (ULF) energy radiation, or mind control
technologies. Despite the inclusion of a prohibition of the basing of
weapons in space, and the use of weapons to destroy objects or damage
objects in space, there is no mention in the revised bill of any of
the aforementioned mind-invasive weaponry, nor of the use of satellite
or radar or other energy based technology for deploying or developing
technology designed for deployment against the minds of human beings.
(Space Preservation Act, 2002)

In reviewing the development of the art of mind-invasive technology
there are a few outstanding achievements to note:

In 1969 Dr Jose Delgado, a Yale psychologist, published a book:
“Physical Control of the Mind: Towards a Psychocivilized Society”. In
essence, he displayed in practical demonstrations how, by means of
electrical stimulation of the brain which had been mapped out in its
relations between different points and activities, functions and
sensations, by means of electrical stimulation, how the rhythm of
breathing and heartbeat could be changed, as well as the function of
most of the viscera, and gall bladder secretion. Frowning, opening and
closing of eyes and mouth, chewing, yawning, sleep, dizziness,
epileptic seizures in healthy persons were induced. The intensity of
feelings could be controlled by turning the knob, which controlled the
intensity of the electric current. He states at the end of his book
the hope that the new power will remain limited to scientists or some
charitable elite for the benefit of a “psychocivilized society.”

In the 1980’s the neuromagnetometer was developed which functions as
an antenna and could monitor the patterns emerging from the brain. (In
the seventies the scientists had discovered that electromagnetic
pulses enabled the brain to be stimulated through the skull and other
tissues, so there was no more need to implant electrodes in the
brain). The antenna, combined with the computer, could localize the
points in the brain where the brain events occur. The whole product is
called the magnetoencephalograph.

In January 2000 the Lockheed Martin neuroengineer Dr John D. Norseen,
was quoted (US News and World Report, 2000) as hoping to turn the
electrohypnomentalaphone, a mind reading machine, into science fact.
Dr Norseen, a former Navy pilot, claims his interest in the brain
stemmed from reading a Soviet book in the 1980’s claiming that
research on the mind would revolutionize the military and society at
large. By a process of deciphering the brain’s electrical activity,
electromagnetic pulsations would trigger the release of the brain’s
own transmitters to fight off disease, enhance learning, or alter the
mind’s visual images, creating a “synthetic reality”. By this process
of BioFusion, (Lockheed Martin, 2000) information is placed in a
database, and a composite model of the brain is created. By viewing a
brain scan recorded by (functional) magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)
machine, scientists can tell what the person was doing at the time of
recording say reading or writing, or recognise emotions from love to
hate. If this research pans out, says Norseen, you can begin to
manipulate what someone is thinking even before they know it. But
Norseen says he is “agnostic” on the moral ramifications, that he’s
not a mad scientist just a dedicated one. The ethics “don’t concern
me,” he says, “but they should concern someone else.”

The next big thing looks like being something which we might refer to
as a neurocomputer but it need not resemble a laptop it may be
reducible to whatever size is convenient for use, such as a small
mobile phone. Arising from a break-through and exploitation of
PSI-phenomena, it may be modelled on the nervous-psychic activity of
the brain that is, as an unbalanced, unstable system of
neurotransmitters and interacting neurones, the work having been
derived from the creation of a copy of a living brain accessed by
chance, and ESP and worked on by design.

On receiving a communication from the writer on the feasibility of a
machine being on the horizon which, based on the project of collecting
electromagnetic waves emanating from the brain and transmitting them
into another brain that would read a person’s thoughts, or using the
same procedure in order to impose somebody else’s thoughts on another
brain and in this way direct his actions there was an unequivocal
answer from IBM at executive level that there was no existing
technology to create such a computer in the foreseeable future. This
is at some variance with the locating of a patent numbered 03951134 on
the Internet pages of IBM Intellectual Property Network for a device,
described in the patent, as capable of picking up at a distance the
brain waves of a person, process them by computer and emit correcting
waves which will change the original brain waves. Similar letters
addressed to each of the four top executives of Apple Inc., in four
individual letters marked for their personal attention, produced
absolutely no response. This included the ex- Vice President of the
United States, Mr Al Gore, newly elected to the Board of Directors of
Apple.

Enough people have been sufficiently concerned by the reports of
victims of mind control abuse to organise The Geneva Forum, in 2002,
held as a joint initiative of the Quaker United Nations Office,
Geneva; the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research; the
International Committee of the Red cross, and the Human Rights Watch
(USA), and Citizens against Human Rights Abuses (CAHRA); and the
Programme for Strategic and International Security Studies, which was
represented by the Professor and Senior Lecturer from the Department
of Peace Studies at the University of Bradford.

In England, on May 25, 1995, the Guardian newspaper in the U.K.
carried an article based on a report by Nic Lewer, the peace
researcher from Bradford University, which listed “more than 30
different lines of research into “new age weapons”” some of the
research sounds even less rational. There are, according to Lewer,
plans for “pulsed microwave beams” to destroy enemy electronics, and
separate plans for very-low-frequency sound beams to induce vomiting,
bowel spasm, epileptic seizures and also crumble masonry.” Further,
the article states, “There are plans for “mind control” with the use
of “psycho-correction messages” transmitted by subliminal audio and
visual stimuli. There is also a plan for “psychotronic weapons”
apparently the projection of consciousness to other locations and
another to use holographic projection to disseminate propaganda and
misinformation. (Welsh, Timeline). Apart from this notable exception
it is difficult to locate any public statement of the problem in the
United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, the problem of credulity does not necessarily cease
with frequent mention, as in the United States, in spite of the number
of reported cases, there is still not sufficient public will to make
strenuous protest against what is not only already happening, but
against what will develop if left unchecked. It appears that the
administration believes that it is necessary and justifiable, in the
interests of national security, to make experimental human sacrifices,
to have regrettable casualties, for there to be collateral damage, to
suffer losses in place of strife or war. This is, of course, totally
incompatible with any claims to be a democratic nation which respects
the values of human life and democracy, and such an administration
which tutors its servants in the ways of such barbaric tortures must
be completely condemned as uncivilised and hypocritical.

Disbelief as a Defence Mechanism

In the face of widespread disbelief about mind-control, it seems worth
analysing the basis of the mechanisms employed to maintain disbelief:

i) In the sixties, Soviet dissidents received a significant measure of
sympathy and indignant protest from western democracies on account of
their treatment, most notedly the abuse of psychiatric methods of
torture to which they were subjected. It is noteworthy that we seem to
be able to access credulity, express feelings of indignant support
when we can identify with victims, who share and support our own value
system, and who, in this particular historical case, reinforced our
own values, since they were protesting against a political system
which also threatened us at that time. Psychologically, it is equally
important to observe that support from a safe distance, and the
benefits to the psyche of attacking a split-off “bad father”, the
soviet authorities in this case, presents no threat to one’s internal
system; indeed it relieves internal pressures. On the other hand,
recognizing and denouncing a similar offence makes very much greater
psychic demands of us when it brings us into conflict with our own
environment, our own security, our own reality. The defence against
disillusion serves to suppress paranoia that our father figure, the
president, the prime minister, our governments might not be what
they would like to be seen to be.

ii) The need to deposit destructive envy and bad feelings elsewhere,
on account of the inability of the ego to acknowledge ownership of
them reinforces the usefulness of persons or groups, which will
serve to contain those, disowned, projected feelings which arouse
paranoid anxieties. The concepts of mind-invasion strike at the very
heart of paranoid anxiety, causing considerable efforts to dislodge
them from the psyche. The unconscious identification of madness with
dirt or excrement is an important aspect of anal aggression,
triggering projective identification as a defence.

iii) To lay oneself open to believing that a person is undergoing the
experience of being invaded mentally and physically by an unseen
manipulator requires very great efforts in the self to manage dread.

iv) The defence against the unknown finds expression in the split
between theory and practice; between the scientist as innovator and
the society who can make the moral decisions about his inventions;
between fact and science fiction, the latter of which can present
preposterous challenges to the imagination without undue threat,
because it serves to reinforce a separation from the real.

v) Identification with the aggressor. Sadistic fantasies, unconscious
and conscious, being transferred on to the aggressor and identified
with, aid the repression of fear of passivity, or a dread of
punishment. This mechanism acts to deny credulity to the victim who
represents weakness. This is a common feature of satanic sects.

vi) The liberal humanist tradition which denies the worst destructive
capacities of man in the effort to sustain the belief in the great
continuity of cultural and scientific tradition; the fear, in one’s
own past development, of not being “ongoing”, can produce the psychic
effect of reversal into the opposite to shield against aggressive
feelings. This becomes then the exaggerated celebration of the “new”
as the affirmation of human genius which will ultimately be for the
good of mankind, and which opposes warning voices about scientific
advances as being pessimistic, unenlightened, unprogressive and
Luddite. Strict adherence to this liberal position can act as
overcompensation for a fear of envious spoiling of good possessions,
i.e. cultural and intellectual goods.

vii) Denial by displacement is also employed to ignore the harmful
aspects of technology. What may be harmful for the freedom and good of
society can be masked and concealed by the distribution of new and
entertaining novelties. The technology, which puts a camera down your
gut for medical purposes, is also used to limit your freedom by
surveillance. The purveyors of innovative technology come up with all
sorts of new gadgets, which divert, entertain and feed the acquisitive
needs of insatiable shoppers, and bolster the economy. The theme of
“Everything’s up to date in Kansas City” only takes on a downside when
individual experience exploding breast implants, say takes the
gilt off the gingerbread. Out of every innovation for evil (i.e.
designed for harming and destroying) some “good” (i.e. public
diversion or entertainment) can be promoted for profit or
crowd-pleasing.

viii) Nasa is sending a spacecraft to Mars, or so we are told. They
plan to trundle across the Martian surface searching for signs of
water and life. We do not hear dissenting voices about its
feasibility.

Why is it that, when a person accounts that their mind is being
disrupted and they are being persecuted by an unseen method of
invasive technology, that we cannot bring ourselves to believe them?
Could it be that the horror involved in the empathic identification
required brings the shutters down? Conversely, the shared experience
of the blasting of objects into space brings with it the possibilities
of shared potency or the relief that resonates in the unconscious of
a massive projection or evacuation a shared experience which is
blessed in the name of man’s scientific genius.

ix) The desire “not to be taken in”, not to be taken for a fool,
provides one of the most powerful and common defence mechanism against
credulity.

Power, Paranoia and Unhealthy Governments

The ability to be the bearer and container of great power without
succumbing to the pressures of latent narcissistic psychoses is an
important matter too little considered. The effect of holding power
and the expectation and the need to be seen as capable of sustaining
it, if not exercising it, encourages omnipotence of thought. In the
wake of this, a narcissistic overevaluation of the subject’s own
mental processes may set in. In the effort to hold himself together as
the possessor, container and executor of power, he (or indeed, she)
may also, undergo a process of splitting which allows him, along with
others, to bear enthralled witness of himself in this illustrious
role. This may mean that the seat of authority is vacated, at least at
times. The splitting process between the experiencing ego and the
perceiving ego allows the powerful leader to alternate his perception
of himself inside and outside, sometimes beside, himself. With the
reinforcement of himself from others as his own narcissistic object,
reality testing is constrained. In this last respect, he has much in
common with the other powerful figure of the age, the movie star. or
by those, in Freud’s words, who are “ruined by success.”

In a world, which is facing increasing disillusion about the gulf
between the public platforms on which governments are elected, and the
contingencies and pragmatics of retaining defence strategies and
economic investments, the role of military and intelligence
departments, with their respective tools of domination and covert
infiltration, is increasingly alarming. Unaccountable to the public,
protected from exposure and prosecution by their immunity, licensed to
lie as well as to kill, it is in the hands of these agents that very
grave threats to human rights and freedom lies. Empowered to carry out
aggression through classified weapon experimentation which is
undetectable, these men and women are also open to corruption from
lucrative offers of financial reward from powerful and sinister groups
who can utilize their skills, privileged knowledge and expertise for
frankly criminal and fascist purposes.

Our information about the psychological profiles of those who are
employed to practice surveillance on others is limited, but it is not
difficult to imagine the effects on the personality that would ensue
with the persistent practice of such an occupation, so constantly
exposed to the perversions. One gains little snatches of insight here
and there. In his book on CIA mind control research (Marks, 1988),
John Marks quotes a CIA colleague’s joke (always revealing for
personality characteristics): “If you could find the natural radio
frequency of a person’s sphincter, you could make him run out of the
room real fast.” (One wonders if the same amusement is derived from
the ability to apply, say infra-sound above 130 decibels, which is
said to cause stoppage of the heart, according to one victim/activist
from his readings of a report for the Russian Parliament.)

Left to themselves, these servants of the state may well feel exempt
from the process of moral self-scrutiny, but the work must be
dehumanising for the predator as well as the prey. It is probably true
that the need to control their agents in the field was an incentive to
develop the methods in use today. It is also an effectively
brutalising training for persecuting others. Meanwhile the object, the
prey, in a bid for not only for survival but also in a desperate
effort to warn his or her fellows about what is going on, attempts to
turn himself into a quantum physicist, a political researcher, a legal
sleuth, an activist, a neurologist, a psychologist, a physiologist
his own doctor, since he cannot know what effects this freakish
treatment might have on his body, let alone his mind. There are always
new methods to try out which might prove useful in the search to find
ways of disabling and destroying opponents, air injected into brains
and lungs, lasers to strike down or blind, particle beams, sonar
waves, or whatever combination of energies to direct, or destabilise
or control.

Science and Scepticism

Scientists can be bought, not just by governments, but also by
sinister and secret societies. Universities can be funded by
governments to develop technology for unacceptably inhumane uses. The
same people who deliver the weapons perhaps respected scientists and
academics may cite the acceptable side of scientific discoveries,
which have been developed by experimenting on unacknowledged,
unfortunate people. In a cleaned up form, they are then possibly
celebrated as a break-through in the understanding of the natural laws
of the universe. It is not implausible that having delivered the
technical means for destruction, the innovator and thinker goes on,
wearing a different hat, to receive his (or her) Nobel Prize. There

In the power struggle, much lies at stake in being the first to gain
control of ultimate mind-reading and mind-controlling technology. Like
the nuclear bomb, common ownership would seem by any sane calculations

to be the first to possess the latest ultimate means of mass
destruction. The most desirable form is one that can be directed at
