Last year, in October, the congressman Denis J. Kucinich introduced in the American Congress a bill, obliging the American president to get engaged in the negotiations aimed at the ban of space based weapons. In this bill the definition of a weapon system includes: any other unacknowledged or as yet undeveloped means inflicting death or injury on, or damaging or destroying, a person (or the biological life, bodily health, mental health, or physical and economic well-being of a person) through the use of land-based, sea-based, or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser, or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations or the purpose of information war, mood management, or mind control of such persons or populations (12).
As in all legislative acts quoted in
this article the bill counts with sound, light or electromagnetic
stimulation of human brain. Psychotronic weapons remain, at least
for a layman uninformed of secret military research, in the sphere
of science fiction, since so far none of the published scientific
experiments was presented in the way which would allow for its
The beam is formed by a combination of
sound and ultrasound waves which causes that a person targeted by
this beam hears the sound inside of his head. Such a perception
could easily convince the human being that it is mentally ill. The
acts presented in this article suggest that with the development of
technology and knowledge of the functioning of human brain new ways
of manipulation of human mind keep emerging. One of them seems to be
the electromagnetic energy.
In the report by World Health Association on non-ionizing radiation from 1991 we read,
Among the published experiments there are experiments where pulsed microwaves caused the synchronization of isolated neurons with the frequency of pulsing of microwaves - for example a neuron firing at a frequency 0.8 Hz was forced in this way to fire the impulses at a frequency of 1 Hz. As well pulsed microwaves changed the concentration of neurotransmitters in brain (neurotransmitters are a part of the mechanism which causes the firing of neurons in the brain) and reinforced or attenuated the effects of drugs delivered into the brain (1).
The experiment where the main brain
frequencies registered by EEG were synchronized with the frequency
of microwave pulsing (1,2) might explain the function of the Russian
installation Radioson. Microwaves pulsed in the sleep frequency
would cause the synchronization of the brain activity with the sleep
frequency and in this way produce the sleep. Pulsing of microwaves
in frequency predominating in the brain at awaked state could by the
same procedure deny the sleep to a human being.
In a many times replicated experiment microwaves pulsed in an exact frequency caused the efflux of calcium ions from the nerve cells (1,2).
Calcium plays a key role in the firing of neurons and Ross Adey, member of the first scientific team which published this experiment, publicly expressed his conviction that this effect of electromagnetic radiation would interfere with concentration on complex tasks (7). Robert Becker, who had share in the discovery of the effect of pulse-fields at the healing of broken bones, published the excerpts from the report from Walter Reed Army Institute testing program. In the first part "prompt debilitation effects" should have been tested (8).
Were not those effects based on the
experiment by Ross Adey and others with calcium efflux? British
scientist John Evans, working in the same field, wrote that both
Ross Adey and Robert Becker lost their positions and research grants
and called them "free-thinking exiles" (6). In 1975, in the USA, a
military experiment was published where pulsed microwaves produced,
in the brain of a human subject, an audio perception of numbers from
1 to 10 (9). Again the possibility to convince human being that it
is mentally ill is obvious.
The American Air Force 1982 "Final Report On Biotechnology Research Requirements For Aeronautical Systems Through the Year 2000" states:
Several scientists warned that latest advances in neurophysiology could be used for the manipulation of human brain. In June 1995, Michael Persinger, who worked on the American Navy's project of Non-lethal electromagnetic weapons (11), published, in a scientific magazine, an article where he states: the technical capability to influence directly the major portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species without mediation through classical sensory modalities by generating neural information within a physical medium within which all members of the species are immersed is now marginally feasible (12).
In 1998, the French National Bioethics Committee warned that neuroscience is being increasingly recognized as posing potential threat to human rights (13).
In May 1999 the neuroscientists conference, sponsored by the UN, took place in Tokyo. In the declaration we read:
The events at the international political scene, in the last few years, confirm that the concept of remote control of human brain is a matter of negotiations. In January 1999 the European Parliament passed a resolution where it calls for an international convention introducing a global ban on all developments and deployments of weapons which might enable any form of manipulation of human beings. (15)
Already in 1997 nine states of the Union of Independent States addressed OUN, OBSE and the states of the Antiparliamentary Union with the proposal to place at the agenda of the General Assembly of the Organization of United Nations the preparation and conclusion of an international convention On Prevention of Informational Wars and Limitation of Circulation of Informational Weapons (17), (3).
The initiative was originally proposed,
in the Russian State Duma, by Vladimir Lopatin (1). V. Lopatin
worked, from 1990 to 1995, in sequence, in the Committees on Security
of the Russian Federation, Russian State Duma and Antiparliamentary
Assembly of the Commonwealth of Independent States, specializing in
informational security (3).
There we find the explanation of this terminology:
Among many references to this subject we find:
In 2000 V. Lopatin introduced, after two other authors, the third in order bill on the subject of "Informational and Psychological Security of the Russian Federation".
The Russian newspaper Segodnya wrote
about this draft: means of informational-psychological influence are
capable not only to harm the health of a person, but, as well, cause
and quotation of Lopatin's draft follows the blocking of freedom of
will of human being on subliminal level, the loss of ability of
political, cultural and other self-identification of human being,
the manipulation of societal consciousness "and even destruction of
united informational and spiritual space of Russia" (17).
They quote as well the record from the session of the Russian Federation Federal Council where V. Lopatin stated that psychotronic weapon can,
For that matter they propose the preparation of national legislative as well as the norms of international law "aimed at the defense of human psyche against subliminal, destructive, informational effects" (21).
As well they propose the
declassification of all works on this technology and warn that, as a
consequence of the classification, the arms race is speeding up
making the psychotronic war probable. Among the possible sources of
remote influence on human psyche they list the generators of
physical fields" of "known as well as unknown nature" (22).
The unavailability of official documents confirming the existence of this technology may be the reason why the OMEGA report is referencing, with respect to mind control technology, the internet publication of the author of this article (27).
In an identical approach the internet
publication of the directrice of the American human rights and anti
mind control organization (CAHRA), Cheryl Welsh, is referenced by
joint initiative of Quaker United Nations Office, United Nations
Institute for Disarmament Research, and Programme for Strategic and
International Security Studies, with respect to non-lethal weapons
The committee recommended that the addendum be approved.
The addendum to the article 6 of the Russian Federation law On Weapons,
In this way the Russian government made a first step to stand up to its dedication to the ban of mind control technology.
In the Doctrine of Informational Security of the Russian Federation, signed by president Putin in September 2000, among the dangers threatening the informational security of Russian Federation, is listed the threat to the constitutional rights and freedoms of people and citizens in the sphere of spiritual life individual, group and societal consciousness" and "illegal use of special means affecting individual, group and societal consciousness" (31).
Among the major directions of the
international cooperation toward the guaranteeing of the
informational security is listed the ban of production,
dissemination and use of 'informational weapon' " (32). This should
be interpreted as the continuing Russian dedication to the
international ban of the means of remote influencing of the activity
of human brain.
Among the countries with the most advanced military technologies those are the USA which did not present any international initiative demanding the ban of technologies enabling the remote control of human mind. (The original version of the bill by Denis J. Kucinich was changed.)
All the same, according to the study published by STOA, the USA are the major promoter of the use of those arms. Non lethal technology was included into NATO military doctrine due to their effort:
The report published by STOA states:
According to the Russian government
informational agency FAPSI, in the last 15 years, the U.S. expenses
on the development and acquisition of the means of informational war
grew four times and at present time they occupy the first place
among all military programs (17),(3).Though there are other concepts
of informational war than mind control, the unwillingness of the USA
to engage in the negotiations aimed at the ban of the manipulation
of human brains might indicate their intent to use those means in
internal as well as international affairs.
