MILITARY TO STUDY SYNTHETIC TELEPATHY

You can forget about those cyber-implants if you're worried about the transhumanist singularity. And you can quit worrying about the NSA reading your emails. And stop worrying about being chipped for biometric identification. Courtesy of a regular reader here, Ms. P.H., the latest technological plaything of the DARPAcrats and mad scientists is a little thing called "synthetic telepathy," and this comes to us from no less a source than phys.org:

Scientists to study synthetic telepathy

And as usual, we're being "sold" the technology by the usual method: it will help stroke victims and so on, and best of all, the whole process of reading your thoughts and communicating brain-to-bran is non-invasive:

The research could lead to a communication system that would benefit soldiers on the battlefield and paralysis and stroke patients, according to lead researcher Michael D’Zmura, chair of the UCI Department of Cognitive Sciences.Read more at: http://phys.org/news137863959.html#jCp

" The research could lead to a communication system that would benefit soldiers on the battlefield and paralysis and stroke patients, according to lead researcher Michael D’Zmura, chair of the UCI Department of Cognitive Sciences.

“'Thanks to this generous grant we can work with experts in automatic speech recognition and in brain imaging at other universities to research a brain-computer interface with applications in military, medical and commercial settings,' D’Zmura says.

"The brain-computer interface would use a noninvasive brain imaging technology like electroencephalography to let people communicate thoughts to each other. For example, a soldier would “think” a message to be transmitted and a computer-based speech recognition system would decode the EEG signals. The decoded thoughts, in essence translated brain waves, are transmitted using a system that points in the direction of the intended target."

Now, in a world where the NSA has been "revealed" to be spying on everyone, in a world with cell towers sprouting like weeds, it does not take much imagination to realize that one goal of such a capability would be to make an "imprint" of a given individual's EEGs, to modify their thoughts, read their thoughts.

And since I have raised the prospect of the Tower of Babel Moment of History in previous dialogues, it is conceivable that as the technology progresses, that it might be possible to engineer a general conformity to various memes that elites want to socially engineer.  There are already a variety of US patents for such devices, making the idea of schizophrenia a convenient psychiatric "cover" for the possibility that some people really are hearing others' voices in their heads. Such technologies would not be beyond the desires of the people behind MK-Ultra, Project Artichoke, and other intelligence agency black projects, to seek.

What I find interesting in the article is both its bland, disinterested tone, and the fact that this is being reported now, when, as I say, the patents have been around since the 1980s, if not before. US Patent # 3,951,134 was filed on April 20, 1976, and the title says it all: "Apparatus and Method for Remotely Monitoring and Altering Brain Waves." That was nearly 40 years ago...and with enough (black budget) money and mad scientist DARPAcrats....

See you on the flip side...

  1. I wonder how far down the road they are to artificially controlling astral projection?

    I guess it’s only one step from mind reading.

    Reminds me of Hong Kong movies where masters fought in the astral domain, silly I know but nothing surprises me nowadays.

  2. Shades of the short story The Tissue Culture King by Julian Huxley and that was written in 1925. I read that story in a science fiction short story collection edited and presented by the late Arthur C. Clarke in the late 1960s.

    1. “Фашизм”- fascism- ” в Америке”- in America- ” мире.”- look/see

      if my past rudimentary knowledge of the Russian language and the diciphering of the letters is correct your statement means “look at facism in America”- please correct me if I’m wrong- so please post something new (or correct my translation)- as if we did not yet know this

      1. Wie gehts Larry … Ich hoffe, Sie sind gut …

        Google translates this as
        “Fascism wins in America and around the world.”

        and, sadly, I echo Dr. Farrell’s reply . . .

        1. hey, Margaret, mir geht’s gut except for still two boken joints on my pinky on my right hand (stage accident) and trying to get over a hacking but now slowly subsiding summer cold (but don’t worry- this, too, shall pass :-)-

          but what baffles me me is why Dr. Farrell would bother to comment on something we all are already aware of-

          but: breaking news: just recently/yesterday in the German-speaking Alsatian newspaper was an article about Putin having caught a gigantic Barracuda (complete with photo- huge fish- obviously photo-shopped)- my point being, and we all know how symbols and signs rule the world: could it be that IF Snowden and Strauss-Kahn are really in Russia (still not convinced of that) the Putin adm. is sending a clear but obscure message to an elite that he’s captured a fish with teeth?-

          and beside that the Alsace is topograhphically the center of Europe-

          completely high-octane speculation on my part-

          please continue to stay well- das ist ein Befehl : )

          Larry

    2. Naomi Wolf’s book
      The End of America: Letter of Warning To A Young Patriot
      Addresses the issue of fascism in striking detail.
      The best rendition of what fascism is and how it is taking root.

  3. Quote: “that it might be possible to engineer a general conformity to various memes that elites want to socially engineer.” Given the mass popularity, in the US, of invading Iraq in 2003, I’d posit this has already been done. That many of the comments here blame one party and blinker obvious problems with that stance with received world views about: “elites”, etc is very similar to applied mass psychology+pshychotronics. Instead: imagine an open system, the marionettes casting shadows on the cave walls are having their strings pulled, and the viewers heads are bound by false constraints.

  4. This is one where I think the science isn’t there. Either in the “inked”(mainstream) world
    or the “Black Ops”/beakaway world.

    But in some otherworld(s)?

    1. Or, perhaps, said “chip” has already been engineered, in the form of some DNA
      or [other] instrument long ago.
      And “we” are not “all there”
      in terms of being of free will/thinking?

      1. No, I think “they” are there, both in the mass consciousness and individual–for the latter see Sirhan Sirhan.

        But it’s not necessarily a unified effort and one department doesn’t know what another is working on. (Also for the most part claims of the Montauk folks are a planned distraction, particularly the perfected mind control claims.)

      2. DNA and matter are a subset of reality. That we can’t let go of the idea of these things being “universal” is certainly a blockage on our part, but I’m not sure it was engineered by some being.

      3. very ancient technology…..remember the deciple cutti;ng the ear of the roman…..or moran….and jesus replacing it.

        very very ancinet….its in star wars as well…..anakin the slave had a tracking chip in him when qui quon showed up….with mason jar blinking in tow

        it is in our eustacian tube, or our corrupted dna.

  5. This report is from 2008. How far have they come since then? Re social engineering memes, the captured msm seems a simple and effective medium (I’m already missing the Daily Bell) and the blandness of the report is typical of clinical, dispassionate scientism.

    It seems to me that once telepathic contact had been made via an artificial interface, the mind/brain would be able to establish its own, unaided, reconnection, after having been shown the ‘door’. Weren’t we connected telepathically before we had language?

    Meanwhile the courts are discussing if our thoughts are private and protected and if thought-inferring brain measurements can be introduced as evidence. The medical graphic used is curious: it has German labels. I wonder where it’s from?
