Yes, you read the title correctly: DARPA, the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency, wants to put the equivalent of an airliner's black box into the brains of soldiers, and, for those following it, it has all the hallmarks of yet another one of those transhumanist memes - the merger of man and machine and the alchemical creation of "mineral man" - that my co-author Dr. Scott deHart and i wrote about in Transhumanism: A Grimoire of Alchemical Agendas.

Pentagon Wants to Fit Soldiers with a Little Black Box Brain Implant

Now you'll note that all of this is being sold as "something good", as a means of tracking "trauma" and being able to reverse it:

"Black box recorders are a common feature in aircraft. They sit there keeping track of everything that is happening. Then, if something goes wrong the information can be reviewed to piece together exactly what happened and form a view of the events that may otherwise have been lost.

"Now the Pentagon is attempting to develop a similar system for use in humans, and in particular soldiers who have suffered brain damage. If they could be fitted with a black box in their brain, then it may be possible to trigger memories surrounding a traumatic event and overcome memory loss quickly and easily.

But the real implications and thereby, I suspect, the hidden agenda, is evident from these statements:

"It’s common to see memory loss in someone suffering brain damage, but they can also forget their personal details and skills, such as remembering their own name, who their family is, and even how to drive. As well as stimulating the brain to recover recent memories, it is hoped the implant would be able to recall common information and therefore help them remember who they are."

In other words, a DARPA wants a technology that can:

  1. Stimulate the brain to recover memories, which implies an ability to
  2. Stimulate the brain to implant or forget memories,
  3. Recall "common information," which implies an ability to
  4. download that information,
  5. Continually spy on an individual via the most intimate form imaginable, via the individual's brain itself, all of which implies the ability
  6. Modify and influence said individual's behavior itself and
  7. to modify an individual's efficiency or performance. After all, of one can stimulate the brain, one could influence an individual's need for rest and sleep. A soldier requiring 50% less sleep or rest is an automatic force multiplier, to use the military jargon.

Watch for it folks: all this will be sold as something good... but in this instance, there's little I find either good or comforting about it.

See you on the flip side...

    The real high tech now is not digital or black boxes or any of that old fashioned technology – it is self enhancement of the brain as wave carrier, transmitter, and manifester, and this is done entirely by way of mental direction – no wires or helmets required. No DARPA required. No internet required. No Big Brother or Elites or any of those dinosaurs have anything at all to do with the cutting edge any more.

      “Nothing was your own except the few cubic centimeters inside your skull” – George Orwell

      And then along comes a darpa little black box
      to be placed inside those few cubic centimeters.

    I bet the creation of the internet at DARPA was also discussed in a similar paranoid fashion here?

    “It will be the creation of SKYNET”
    “It will be used to spy on everyone nonstop”

    Well, yes, maybe. But is there anyone here that would get rid of the internet? Does the fact that a technology can be used for nefarious purposes mean it has no beneficial application and should be Verboten?

    You people need to open the blinds, let in some sunlight. Get out more, there is an actual living world out there that is not controlled by “the elites” and where some fun can actually still be had you know.

    • Robert Barricklow on February 27, 2014 at 9:21 am

      I guess most of the world doesn’t live on $2 a day or less?

    • LibTechBanshee on February 27, 2014 at 10:45 am

      I’m guessing you don’t keep up on current events.

      SKYNET’s inception will be ‘married’ with Google’s powerplay in acquiring a laundry list of robotics companies, including DARPA.

      We’ll let you know when Google gets tired of all the complaints about monopolizing proprietary technologies and is forced to eject/launch it’s most favorite subsidiary.

      We’ll probably call their launched “stepchild” Weyland Industries….soze all the people busy having fun can connect the dots quicker.

      • Robert Barricklow on February 27, 2014 at 11:57 am

        Your right in your guess. I’m not; and actually appreciate free spirits like yourself, whose awareness is way above mine. I’m running as fast as I can just to try a stay “in-place” so-to-speak.
        Having just listened to the latest guns and butter(Feb 26) http://kpfa.org/archive/show/34
        I’m getting feedback that aligns with my point-of-view/which is worrisome to me, in the sense that, every time I thought I finally was close to right, along comes a knock-out dose of “reality” that tells me/it’s deeper than I ever imagined.
        So LibTechBanshee, I appreciate your “clueing me in”,
        as I try to just to keep pace.

        (And I haven’t had too much fun
        since I lost my 69 389 Goat.)

        • LibTechBanshee on February 27, 2014 at 12:28 pm


          Thanks for the response and the link.

          I don’t consider myself at the forefront of the “in the know” crowd, but rather more like many of the recently aware/awake (thirst for knowledge) and with a pulse for humanity. I’m sure that I come across as a bit too cocky for my own good…but in the end, my intentions are honorable. Since I only found Dr. Farrell’s work a few days ago and am on #15 in the podcast series….I have a lot of catching up to do. Hopefully I will learn a lot here and not get ‘Runn Oft’ too soon.

          BTW, glad to hear you had a bit of fun. I sold a couple cars after military service to scrape up the cash for a ’64 Goat and was too slow to secure the deal. (never had…or lost)

          • Robert Barricklow on February 27, 2014 at 12:47 pm

            Like many things,
            there’s the good news and the bad news.

            Bad news,
            no 69 goat.

            Good news,
            no more getting into goat trouble –
            that comes with the goat territory.

      • Robert Barricklow on February 27, 2014 at 12:12 pm

        Having said that, just for fun…

        • Robert Barricklow on February 27, 2014 at 12:15 pm

          Looks my computer skills aren’t keeping pace.
          Its yesterday’s, Feb 26th, Speedbump comic.

    They’ve already put it where the sun don’t shine.

    Like Butch Cassidy said to Sundance,
    “Who are these guys?”!

  4. chris on February 26, 2014 at 6:29 pm

    I don’t think ET is going to like this at all.
    No wait, General Electric has already done this where i work. Yup, points 2,5 and 6 for sure. they really need to works on point 7 a lot!

    Just watch the Daily Show from last night with Michio Kaku.


    • DanaThomas on February 27, 2014 at 1:24 am

      After 13 min. of ads etc., Kaku talks about downloadable memories (for “therapeutic” purposes)…

      • Lost on February 27, 2014 at 3:25 pm

        No, he talks about uploading/inputting memories into rats. (Not humans yet.)

        Don’t know how to avoid the ads. I can’t find a direct link to only the interview.

        Irony, reprogramed brains and altered identities+abilities are things that the Montauk Project types have been claiming happened to them for years.

        • Lost on February 28, 2014 at 7:45 am


          So I checked my DVR, and uploading memories to mice (not rats) is pretty much the first thing that Michio Kaku talks about on the show.

          And uploading memories is certainly a way of changing identities.

    Heinrich Himmler would have love this. His wet dream perfect super Schutzstaffe ready to do their duties without any thought of the consequences of their acts. Who really won The Great War Part 2 have the NAZI’S just move the corporate headquarters to the USA. By the way I can’t access this website from my igHome page but I can from GOOGLE page.

  7. terminally skeptical on February 26, 2014 at 9:03 am


    First the above and now this below. Come on guys, you’re getting really demanding! Don’t you know I’m busy too? It’s starting to feel as if I’m in a bad relationship.

    Soldiers with black box brains? Is that a brainy idea, are those boxes reliable? I seem to recall that both TWA 800 and the 9/11 birds came with hard to find boxes during recovery. Rumor (alright so maybe it was my turn to ignite the gossip this time) is that they were all first seen in the basement of the Pentagon and then reunited with their crash sites in an act of sentimental conciliation.

    But they do come in handy at times. To wit:


    True fact: At Schiphol airport before the major renovation they had a cafeteria called The Brainbox. Was the NWO trying to tell us something?

  8. sagat1 on February 26, 2014 at 8:52 am

    This reminds me of the early 90’s film Universal Soldier where a secret army division create an elite fighter genetically altered into a programmable killing machine.

  9. LibTechBanshee on February 26, 2014 at 8:38 am

    I wonder if anybody has bothered with asking the ‘Skynet’ what exactly their agenda is going forward….and if they will be taking their newly acquired technologies on a little boat ride aboard any of the barges within their flotilla?

  10. Frankie Calcutta on February 26, 2014 at 6:58 am

    Taking computer games to the next level? How many empathy dulled gamers would pay to have the experience of remote controlling a combat soldier, or, just going along for the grisly war adventure? Sounds like a quick money maker for DARPA and the Breakaways.

      Too many.
