DOWNLOADING AND REPAIRING BRAIN FUNCTION

Earlier this week I mentioned a DARPA project to create a vast cyber-warfare "matrix" capable of modelling human behavior, and I noted the participation of the famous Johns Hopkins University, well-known as a premier medical science institute of learning, in the project. Well, scientists are now a step closer to mapping brain functions and being able to actually repair neural functionality, and even to "download" this functionality, using an adaptation of Magnetic Resonance Imaging technology:

Download Knowledge Directly to Your Brain, Matrix-Style

Like all technologies, this comes as a double-edged sword.

On the "dark side" of course it augurs the possibility that an individual's or even a target population's neural functions could be specifically targeted and modified or erased. One could, so to speak, envision a technologically-induced state of "stroke" or dementia, of either a temporary or permanent nature. Rest assured, if you and I can think of it, the proverbial "they" probably already have and have probably already been busily researching it. After all, recall from my post about the DARPA project earlier in the week that two aerospace companies known to be involved up to their stock dividends in black projects research, Lockheed-Martin and Northrup Grumman, were involved in the DARPA project.  Similarly, one could imagine the theoretical possibility that technologies could be developed - and probably already are - that allow a primitive degree of mind-reading. And with that possibility comes the Minority Report idea of a department of "pre-crime," where one could be held criminally responsible for "bad thoughts," which would, of course, make us all criminals, since we all have them at one time or another in our lives.

On the "good side" of the idea however, comes the possibility of the technological repair of damaged neural functioning, and one can imagine the boon to sufferers of stroke, dementia, Alzheimers, or even in the rare case of survivors of brain aneurisms, a repair of lost brain functioning and even the recovery of "lost" memories.

Like it or not, we are entering the New Age; technologies and the sciences underpinning them are opening up possibilities for humanity for almost limitless good and boundless evil, and it is incumbent that these developments be known and debated freely by as many people as possible, for we can ill afford to have the same elites that have been responsible for the criminal looting and and plundering of the world to determine the outlines of this debate for us, for we already know to which of the two sides they are inclined.

  1. It’s 12 degrees outside! I have to go out in the DEEP FREEZE in a short while which isn’t making me feel very good.

    Neither is this —-our ancestors were CANABILS theories! (if that was so I wouldn’t be here posting on this site. NO, ABSOLUTELY NOT! Humans survived because they really, really, really CO-OPERATED and watched out for one another. I just read yesterday one crazy sounding theory that said why we are so distracted in for example TV-land is because the facts say we are in the process of becoming EXTINCT. So it is better or more kinder to dance on the titanic than face the FUTURE/END. Do we tell CHILDREN they are going to die from some horrible disease in a couple of years and are going to suffer so much it’s UNIMAGINABLE?

    NO, OF COURSE WE DON’T. WE ARE MUCH MORE HUMANE THAN THAT OR ARE WE?)

    Put another way,

    Hypothetically lets say there are only 20 known cases of where humans practiced canabalism but there are 20 MILLION CASES which say they don’t. Which do you believe? WOULD YOU GO ON TRYING TO prove humans are canabils? ANOTHER way to say it is — there are 5 guys in the next town who have 27 automatic rifles stored in their cellar and are up to NO GOOD at the same time there are THOUSANDS of people Operating a stash of 10 thousand NUCLEAR BOMBS but don’t be afraid of them. They wont hurt you? Their intentions are PURE.

    I believe the occupiers should be CAMPED OUT in the DOORWAYS of our EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES.

    For the POISON isn’t injected from BANKS OR THE ECONOMY AT ALL! it is injected into OUR CHILDREN’S MINDS!

    We INTELLECTUALS SUFFER a weird occupational hazard where we constantly search for the tiniest bit of data in the MOST COMPLEX WAY to prove TRIVIA.

    Some EXPLANATIONS ARE SO SIMPLE EVEN a child could understand AND THAT IS THE WAY NATURE INTENDS IT. (don’t pay heed to NATURE and you get a big SURPRISE! No, not really —EXPECT IT?)

    The reason nobody can find the MISSING LINK is because there is NO MISSING LINK! (that is used to KEEP US IN THE DARK just like elementary schools were created for. TO KEEP US IN THE DARK)

    I think we should be looking into the DEVELOPMENTAL-MIND OF the CHILD FOR THE ANSWER!

    CHILDREN ARE JUST LIKE ANIMALS — THEY ARE SMARTER THAN ADULTS. THEY CANT GO AGAINST THEIR INSTINCTS without the SOUL MURDER that is FORCED ON THEM called EDUCATION.

    FEYERABEND IS CORRECT WHEN HE SAYS TITLED ONE OF HIS BOOKS = THE TYRANNY OF SCIENCE!

    1. I really shouldn’t be revealing where my BUTTONS are on the INTERNET. (besides, who really gives a shit. The one;s that do are the one’s I am only interested in?)

      It’s not a very BRIGHT thing to do but realistical my Wattage or LIGHT BULB IS ABOUT 60watts, ha, ha!

      I don’t HANG ON COAT-TAILS, I LISTEN TO WHAT THEY ARE SAYING. In fact I am more likely to KICK COATTAILS in the A$$ when they start acting like their wattage is 60 too, ha, ha!)

  2. HOW TO THINK LIKE A NEADERTAL = PURE BALONY!!!!!!

    It’s hard to believe I once would have gave that article in the NEW YORK TIMES much credibility/thought.

    The implication is ALLY OOPS were more like dumb beasts compared to US.

    THE REAL HIDDEN/subliminal MESSAGE IN THIS phony NEWS-ARTICLE IS THIS >>>>>>>GEE, aren’t we so advanced NOW.

    He even tries to slant his SIC hypothesis ( but more like a blow -job or even better a SNOW-JOB so THE PUBLIC thinks these researchers are really discovering or accomplishing SOMETHING TO JUSTIFY —ANY— salary! )

    I will only DECONSTRUCT a couple of points in the article.

    1.) Even if they did practice the concept of LOVING THY NEIGHBOR SO MUCH THAT THEY ATE THEM it was probably because they were STARVING. (I got as much proof for this hypothesis as the authors do theirs?)

    We could go on to assume it was due to lack of any available food. (SO THEY KILLED ONLY TO EAT JUST LIKE MOST ANIMALS. WOW — THAT IS SUCH A BAD THING ISN’T IT? We are the ones who are LUCKY because iIF ANIMALS KILLED for reasons other than FOOD (JUST LIKE PEOPLE) then the world would be like an ALFRED HITCHCOCK MOVIE.

    They don’t joke and called PHDs ===== PILED-A-MILE-HIGH-DEGREES for nothing!

    SUCH BIRDBRAINS — my apologies to our feathered-friends, it’s just an expression.

    2.) He tantalizes us when he says 1 to 4% of our genes come from CAVEMEN (ha, ha!) No – he says NON-AFRICANs.

    i guess the hidden implication of this is = I guess that AFRICANS haven’t caught up yet with their paler skin relatives. ( DECOLONIZE THIS SAME-OLD, SAME-OLD ORGANIC FERTILIZER RIGHT THIS INSTANT!!!!! )

    Enough of this:

    I think it was FARRELL SPECULATING about how 95% JUNK DNA or the Y-chromosone material COULD-BE of ALIEN DESCENT? (or was it DAVID ICKE who mentioned that LINE I CANT REMEMBER?)

    That line of reasonable -speculation or FANTASIZING could take me places which DO LEAD to some kind of ACCURACY/CLARITY OF THE VERY ANCIENT PAST!

    NOT LIKE THE SHIRLEY TEMPLE LA-LA LANDS this article wants us to believe. (kind of reminds me of that movie AIRPLANE = where some one says SURELY YOU DON’T BELIEVE… and the comedian says, STOP CALLING ME SHIRLEY. THAT’S NOT MY NAME. Well II say to the authors of this article and the NEW YORK TIMES that gives it print-space —-STOP THIS BULLSHIT NOW, this instant! (but they wont for that isn’t where they get their orders from — ABOVE not from BELOW!)

  3. Physiologically, the ‘upside’ and the ‘downside’ don’t have
    a whole bunch to do with each other, Joseph.

  4. Robert Barricklow

    “Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull.
    It was a bright cold day in April, and the clocks were striking thirteen.”

    – George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four

    1. ROBERT,

      I wouldn’t swear on the bible I still have those ‘FEW CUBIC CENTIMETERS’ but then again my mother always taught us not to swear, ha, ha! (much that is)

      I must still have something up there for I stumble unto paragraphs (not my OWN – of course that I can appreciate and they say appreciation is SOMETHING. ( the ability to recognize or cognate )

      Screw the false modesty. I am going to share it with anyone so interested.

      It comes from an author named WOLFGANG ISER and the title of the book is ‘PROSPECTING; from reader response to literary anthropology. (I lost the page and chapter number but it was I know it was the last chapter titled, I think, TOWARD A LITERARY ANTHROPOLOGY. (somewhere around pg. 265 if I recall correctly?)

      It goes as follows,:

      FICTIONS ARE INVENTIONS enabling humankind to extend itself –
      a state of affairs which can be studied from various angles. If we
      ask about the point of these inventions, we are confronted with the
      different uses to which they have been put and have to distinguish
      between the many fictions that pervade our everyday life and the
      fictionality of literature. Clearly they are not the same, but take on
      different forms according to their function, thereby implicitly re-
      vealing the different needs that they satisfy. The link between fiction
      and function is not, of course, a new discovery. It has always been
      in the forefront whenever attempts have been made to purge fiction
      of the taint of deception. As deception is generally for a specific
      purpose, even this negative charge is evidence that fiction is defined
      according to use. The latter will determine whether judgement is
      positive or negative, but whichever is the case, it is clear that in-
      tention governs function and therefore form.

      ————————-

      combine this with this next paragraph two pages later

      and it gets quite interesting.

      _________________________________

      The next paragraph:

      It has always been assumed that fiction can produce realities.
      For Vaihinger this was an incontrovertible truth, which led to his
      formulating the law of “shift of ideas.”(8) Ideas, he assumed, pass
      through a transformation of their inherent potential. At first they
      are realities, because they are taken for the thing itself, though they
      were originally only devised in order to explain the thing. Once this
      latter fact is accepted, they change into hypotheses, but still with
      the insinuation that there is a certain reality that corresponds to
      them. Finally, these hypotheses reveal themselves to be fictions
      that — precisely because there is nothing that corresponds to them —
      condition the construction of realities. In ‘truth’, however, all realities
      for Vaihinger are just such fictions, even if their operational success
      makes them appear to be reality and may therefore prevent us
      from realizing that they are fictitious. Wherever and whenever re –
      alities are produced, there are fictions involved.

      (end)

      The nature of Farrell’s subject material calls for this kind of scrutiny.

      BUT WE CAN STILL KIDD AROUND in the SPACE OF THOSE FEW CUBIC CENTER -METERS! (isn’t the idea of micro-physics to EXPOSE galaxies on droplets of dew hanging from a blade of grass. OK I admit that is too cliche-like. Maybe I should say there is a lot more ROOM in our 1984 HEADS, ha, ha)

      1. I do have some TROUBLE with that word ‘INTENTION’ in the first paragraph?

        But then again, I need to take heed of some wise sober advice —- IF IT WORKS DON’T FIX IT!

  5. And if the technologies Bearden talks about have indeed been developed to the degree he claims, then this research is about 30-40 years behind the curve, which is about right for public disclosure of black project technology.

    Again, I am reminded of the Firesign Theater’s comedy line: “a power so great it can only be used for Good or Evil…”

    Joss Whedon’s short-lived series “Dollhouse” was a pretty good exploration of this concept, including some of the good aspects – such as being able to suddenly learn anything you need, or saving your personality in case your body is killed. Interestingly enough, the concept of mind control was also a cornerstone of Firefly, his other short-lived series. Perhaps he was treading too close to someone’s home turf with those two shows…

    Both shows also dealt with “collateral damage” from such programs – which could explain some of the societal strangeness we see today.

    Interestingly enough, the concept of preserving and transplanting consciousness from one body to another is a remarkable analog for reincarnation (which is not milk from dead cows – sorry – old joke).

    We already have a real Cyberdyne corporation. If someone forms one called Blue Sun or The Dollhouse, we should really get concerned…

    1. There’s a better way for that, too.

      When I learned how to ‘read’ in school,
      I forgot how to read the way I was reading
      before school at age 3 & 4, that I can remember.

      Plus my father got POed because I
      could not ‘read’ every single word.
      AND
      even though I was willing to tell him what
      the book was about that I happened to be ‘reading,’
      I couldn’t borrow any more books
      or hide under the covers.

  6. Perhaps this was behind the push for digital TV and other media? What better way to access and control the minds of millions, leading to an ever increasing “zombification” of Amerika and the world….

    1. DIGITAL
      is COMPLETELY BAD
      for your health, for so many reasons
      it is a whole book
      AND I have several…………….
      plus personal esperience !

  7. The potential for GOOD IS FANTASTIC but do you really think that is the primary purpose given the tract record of these people with their WEAPON MANIA?

    I remember the state of Missouri telling its poorer citizens it will no longer fund or pay for organ transplants. (this was around 1985, things may have changed for I haven’t kept up) It’s not really a death sentence. It’s just a DEMAND that they move to some OTHER PLACE or STATE that does pay.

    Ok, we can fix your BRAIN if you give us 1,400,000 dollars tomorrow afternoon Otherwise – remand a drooling, dribbling idiot! TOUGH SHIT!

  8. So, now we don’t need FEMA camps to “house” the troublemakers interfering with the implimentation of the NWO paradise. All that is needed is to download our brain functionality run it through a cyber sifting device and return the sanitized version to our cranium. Wow, ain’t sicience great!
