ELEVEN: Unclassified Science:
ELEVEN: Unclassified Science: The Military financed all scientific research into development of directed energy weapons. After decades of work real progress was on the horizon and much of the research became classified, or once a breakthrough of some kind was made, the public program was shut down and restarted elsewhere in conditions of absolute secrecy. The published scientific papers that concerned potential weapons and even bioelectric medicine were reduced to a trickle, but occasional information about their existence continued to emerge. The work of Allen Sharp, Joseph Sharp, Allen Frey, Delgado, Ross Adey, J.F. Schapitz, Andre Puharich, Herman Schwann, James Lin, Bill Van Bise, Eldon Byrd, Robert Becker, James Lilly, Igor Smirnov and many others present sufficient evidence of these weapons existence. The earliest work on the effects of electromagnetics on humans was done by Nikola Tesla. Drs Chaffee and Light in 1934 published ―A Method For Remote Control of Electrical Stimulation of the Nervous System. The same year Soviet scientist Vasilev wrote ―Critical Evaluation of the Hypogenic Method‖. The experiments showed, ―At a distance...mental suggestion to go to sleep was complied with within a minute. The background to the development of anti-personnel electromagnetic weapons can be traced to the early-middle 1940's and possibly earlier. The earliest extant reference was contained in the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (Pacific Survey, Military Analysis Division, Volume 63) reviewed Japanese research and development efforts on a "Death Ray." While not reaching the stage of practical application, research was considered sufficiently promising to warrant the expenditure of 2 million Yen during the years 1940- 1945. Summarizing the Japanese efforts, allied scientists concluded that a ray apparatus might be developed that could kill unshielded human beings at a distance of 5 to 10 miles. Studies demonstrated that, for example, automobile engines could be stopped by tuned waves as early as 1943. It is therefore reasonable to suppose that this technique has been available for a great many years. Research on living organisms (mice and ground hogs) revealed that waves from 2 meters to 60 centimeters in length caused hemorrhage of lungs, whereas waves shorter than two meters destroyed brain cells. Andre Puharich studied the effects of radio waves on animals at Northwestern University in the late 1940‘s, later founded a laboratory he called the ―Round Table Foundation of Electro biology‖. His associate in the organization was Warren S. McCulloch of Bellevue, an early advocate of electronic brain implants, chair of conferences sponsored by the Josiah Macy Jr. Foundation. Puharich was later employed at the Army‘s Chemical and Biological Warfare Center at Fort Detrick, Maryland, researching the effects of LSD for the CIA in 1954. He perfected the radio tooth implant, ―a small little relay and receiver and transmitter‖. Puharich also worked at the Permanente Research Foundation and was funded by Sandoz Chemical Works. (Kieth pg 176) Dr. Allan Frey, a biophysicist at G.E.‘s Advanced Electronics Center, Cornell Univ. (and a contractor for the office of Naval Research) discovered in 1958 that the auditory system responds to EM energy in a portion of the RF spectrum at low power densities...well below that necessary for biological damage.‖ ―The human auditory system and a table radio may be one order of magnitude apart in sensitivity to RF energy.‖ Frey proposed ―stimulating the nervous system without the damage caused by electrodes.‖ He wrote two papers, ―Microwave Auditory Effect and Applications‖ and ―Human Auditory Response to Modulated Electromagnetic Energy‖. Frey‘s work had obvious implications for covert operations. He synchronized pulsed microwaves with the myocardial rhythm of a frog‘s heart, the heart stopped beating. Frey had perfected the induction of heart seizures by beamed electromagnetics. He microwaved cats and found that stimulation of the hypothalamus had a powerful effect on emotions. Frey ...found that human subjects exposed to 1310MHz and 2982 MHz microwaves at average power densities of 0.4 to 2mW/cm2 perceived auditory sounds...The peak power densities were on the order of 200 to 300 mW/cm2 and the pulse repetition frequencies varied from 200 to 400 Hz...Frey referred to this auditory phenomenon as the RF (radio frequency) sound. The sensation occurred instantaneously at average incident power densities well below that necessary for known biological damage and appeared to originate from within or near the back of the head. Frey was reluctant to experiment on humans but others, particularly Paperclip scientist were not. Dr. Ross Adey worked at UCLA, rigged the brains of lab animals to transmit to a radio receiver, which shot signals back to a device that sparked any behavior desired by the researcher. Adey had worked closely with émigré Nazi technicians after WWII. Adey determined that emotional states and behavior can be remotely influenced merely by placing a subject in an electromagnetic field. By directing a carrier frequency to stimulate the brain and using amplitude modulation to shape the wave to mimic a desired EEG frequency, he was able to impose a 4.5 CPS theta rhythm on his subjects. Drs. Joseph Sharp and Allen Frey experimented with microwaves seeking to transmit spoken words directly into the audio cortex via a pulsed-microwave analog of the speaker's sound vibration. Indeed, Frey's work in this field, dating back to 1960, gave rise to the so called "Frey effect" which is now more commonly referred to as "microwave hearing." Within the Pentagon this ability is now known as "Artificial Telepathy." Adey and others have compiled an entire library of frequencies and pulsation rates which can affect the mind and nervous system. (Guyatt) Dr Herman Schwann is hailed as the father of bioelectric medicine, out of his research came the 10 milliwatt safety standard set in the 1950‘s. Schwann worked at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute of biophysics in Germany, became a Paperclip scientist after the war and taught bioengineering at the Univ. of Pennsylvania. Schwann was heavily funded, mostly by the DOD. Schwann was lionized at the University of Pennsylvania as a great humanitarian, his portrait still hangs in a place of honor. Schwann was a German scientist who came to the US under a military recruitment program after the war. He has worked at the University of Pennsylvania on numerous government contracts and set the first health and safety standards for electromagnetic radiation, adopted by the US government. In Physical Properties of Biological Matter: Some History, Principles, and Applications by Herman P. Schwann, 1982. "...Rajewsky and I had published a paper on the conductivity of erythrocytes, reporting, for the first time, dielectric measurements on biological materials extending up to 1,000 MHz. ...I mention all of these things to indicate the decisive role that the Navy and NIH played. Navy support has been available to me, in one form or another, ever since 1947, and NIH support since 1952." The book continues, "While a young physics student, financial problems forced me to interrupt my studies until I found employment as an electronics technician at the Oswalt Institute for Physics in Medicine, now the Max Planck Institute for Biophysics...cell membranes are not likely to be affected directly by microwaves since fields of interest can only apply potentials across the membranes that are vanishingly small in comparison with potentials needed to yield significant membrane responses. And significant responses of biopolymers require field strength levels very much higher than those causing undue heating." Schwann has worked extensively in the biomedical engineering field. He has claimed up to the 1990s that the non-thermal effects of electromagnetic radiation have not been proven. Schwan's March 22, 2000 email response to the issue of classified electromagnetic, neurological weapons stated. "I am not aware of military antipersonnel weapons using electromagnetic (EM) radiation. There was a lot of talk about it some years ago. I believe the potential for such weaponry is small since EM radiation field strength decreases inversely with the distance square in the "distant" field. (Cheryl Welsh) Dr. J.F. Schapitz was funded by the DOD, proposing in 1974 the use of radio broadcasting in conjunction with hypnotic control. He wrote, ―the spoken word of the hypnotist may be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain-i.e., without employing any technical devices for the receiving and transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the input consciously...‖ ―The second experiment was the implanting of hypnotic suggestions for simple acts, like leaving the lab to buy some particular item, which were to be triggered by a suggested time, spoken word, or sight. Subjects were to be interviewed later. It may be expected that they rationalize their behavior and consider it to be undertaken out of their own free will.‖ The results of Schapitz‘ experimentation have never been released to the public. (Kieth pg 181) Eldon Byrd, a specialist in medical bioengineering, worked for the Marine Corps 1980-83 at the Armed Forces Radiobiology Research Institute of Bethesda, Maryland. Byrd experimented on small animals and himself to see if electromagnetic waves could be used to influence or entrain the brain activity of living organisms. Byrd said, ―We could put animals into a stupor by hitting them with these frequencies. We got chick brains in vitro to dump 80% of the natural opioids in their brains. The effect was non- lethal and reversible. You could disable a person temporarily, it would have been like a stun gun, we would have had a weapon in one year.‖ Byrd reported having his work taken away from him and the project going black, numerous other researchers in electromagnetics report having their work taken away from them at the precise point when they begin to get successful results. (Kieth pg 183) Dr. Dietrich Beischer exposed 7,000 naval crew men to dangerous levels of microwave energy, claiming the exposure limits could be ―obtained no other way‖ given the ̳exquisitely complex and dynamic nature of the human organism.‖ Dr Beischer disappeared or died in 1977, like scores of other scientists engaged in research on microwave weapons. Nobel laureate Robert O. Becker received a phone call from Beischer ―He blurted out, I‘m at a pay phone, I can‘t talk long, they are watching me. I can‘t go to the meeting or ever communicate with you again. I‘m sorry, you‘ve been a good friend. Goodbye.‖ Soon after I called his office at Pensacola and was told, ―I‘m sorry, there is no one here by that name.‖ Just as in the movies, a guy who had done important research there for decades just disappeared.‖ According to author Ford Rowan, Richard Helm‘s dream of biocommunication was achieved by the CIA in the late sixties. Microwaves penetrated the skull, the miniaturized receiver linked the brain to a remote computer. Brain waves were deciphered, recorded, and beamed to another person...two- way mental communication. (Kieth pg 180) At the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, Dr. Joseph C. Sharp, himself, was the subject of an experiment in which pulsed microwave audiograms, or the microwave analog of the sound vibrations of spoken words, were delivered to his brain in such a way that he was able to understand the words that were spoken. Military and undercover uses of such a device might include driving a subject crazy with inner voices in order to discredit him, or conveying undetectable instructions to a programmed assassin. In his autobiography, The Scientist, John C. Lilly records a conversation he had with the director of the National Institute of Mental Health--in 1953. The director asked Lilly to brief the CIA, FBI, NSA, and the various military intelligence services on his work using electrodes to stimulate directly the pleasure and pain centers in the brain. Lilly refused, noting, in his reply: "Dr. Antoine Remond, using our techniques in Paris, has demonstrated that this method of stimulation of the brain can be applied to the human without the help of the neurosurgeon; he is doing it in his office in Paris without neurosurgical supervision. This means that anybody with the proper apparatus can carry this out on a person covertly, with no external signs that the electrodes have been used on that person. I feel that if this technique got into the hands of a secret agency, they would have total control over a human being and be able to change his beliefs extremely quickly, leaving little evidence of what they had done."(Cannon, Martin, The Controllers, 1980) Dr. James Lin of Wayne State University wrote a book entitled Microwave Auditory Effects & Applications, in which he states "The capability of communicating directly with humans by pulsed microwaves is obviously not limited to the field of therapeutic medicine." EM mind control machines were championed at Stanford University by Dr. Karl Pribram, director of the Neuropsychology Research Laboratory: "I certainly could educate a child by putting an electrode in the lateral hypothalamus and then selecting the situations at which I stimulate it. In this way I can grossly change his behavior." Psychology Today celebrated Pribram as "The Magellan of Brain Science." He obtained his B.S. and M.D. degrees at the University of Chicago, and at Stanford University studied how the brain processes and stores sensory imagery. He is credited with discovering that mental imaging bears a close resemblance to hologram projection (the basis for transmitting images to the craniums of test subjects under the misnomer "remote viewing?"). (Constantine) Dr. Michael Persinger, a psychologist and neuro-scientist, ―did research on the effects of electromagnetic radiation on the brain for a Pentagon weapons project‖. He has worked in the field for 40 years and has been funded by the Navy and reportedly the NSA as well. Persinger perfected a means to make experimental subjects feel they have been abducted by aliens or had an encounter with angels or God through the use of a modified motorcycle helmet equipped with solenoids to send electromagnetic pulses through the frontal lobes of their brains. ―Human experience of God can be generated by a process that has nothing to do with whether God exists or not.‖ Persinger published, ―On the Possibility of Directly Accessing Every Human Brain by Electromagnetic Induction of Fundamental Algorithms.‖ (1995) ―A process which is coupled to the narrow band of brain temperature could allow all normal human brains to be affected by a sub harmonic whose frequency range at 10 Hz would only vary by 0.1 Hz.‖ ―Random variations, of noise within the matrices could potentially differentiate between individual brains.‖ In other words individuals could be identified by the specific characteristics of their brain output. ―Identification of these sequences could also allow direct access to the most complex neurocognitive processes associated with the self, human consciousness and the aggregate of experimental representations (episodic memory) that define the individual within the brain.‖ In other words, a person‘s memory, consciousness, and sense of self can be fully accessed and modified by electromagnetic means...essentially a person‘s personality can be completely shaped by electromagnetic means much like the research of Dr. Ewen Cameron sought to do with more primitive means. Persinger says brain processes can be ―circumvented by direct induction of this information within the brain...the basic premise is that synthetic duplication of the neuroelectrical correlates generated by sensors to an actual stimulus should produce identical experiences without the presence of that stimulus.‖ He is saying that virtually any mental state can be artificially injected into a human brain...from an exterior source. The most frightening thing is that the means for doing this already exist in a fully operational form on a worldwide basis. ―The power levels for these amplitudes are similar to those associated with the signals (generated globally by radio and communication systems)... Within the last two decades a potential has emerged which was improbable but which is now marginally feasible. This potential is the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species...by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed.‖ Persinger‘s message, minus the jargon, is that the entire human race can be mind controlled through the use of television and radio networks.
