Here's one that Mr. S.D. found, which I find incredibly interesting, not so much for what the Diabolically Apocalyptic Research Projects Agency (DARPA), has planned, but rather, for the backhanded admissions and corroborations that it contains. But we'll get to those in a moment. Here's the story:
Here's the premise:
Much like robots, humans depend on internal electricity to function. Our nervous systems pretty much consist of sparks of electricity jumping from one nerve to another to regulate nearly all our vital functions. Our brains are storms of electricity, our hearts pump thanks to electrical impulses and we make sense of the images that come in through our eyes through an electrical process.
And here's what DARPA wants to do:
It makes sense then that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), a unit within the US Department of Defense that focuses on cutting-edge research for military applications, is interested in exploring ways to treat the human body as the electrical system it really is.
DARPA has created an initiative called Electrical Prescriptions, or ElectRx, to investigate how light, sound waves, magnets and outside electrical pulses could help soldiers heal. On Monday, the agency announced that it will be awarding grants to seven different teams involved with mapping and treating the body's electrical systems.
And consider this wonderful and benign application:
"We envision technology that can detect the onset of disease and react automatically to restore health by stimulating peripheral nerves to modulate functions in the brain, spinal cord and internal organs."
Each of the teams chosen by DARPA will be investigating a different way of approaching health and healing.
In other words, DARPA wants to stimulate the brain, to heal the body: mind over matter, or, to put it more bluntly, mind-control medicine. But there's more:
"Ultimately, the program envisions a complete system that can be tested in human clinical trials aimed at conditions such as chronic pain, inflammatory disease, post-traumatic stress and other illnesses that may not be responsive to traditional treatments," DARPA said. (Emphasis added)
Of course, the mind-control-medicine or 'mind-control-pathology-and-therapy" implications are not the only implications here. The wider ones are that DARPA is pondering non-pharmaceutical approaches to medicine at all.
And this brings me to my high octane speculation of the day, for in a backhanded fashion, what DARPA has just done is to acknowledge that the whole field of electro-magnetic medicine, that field pioneered by physicians like Royal Raymond Rife, or Alain Priore, are not fantasies, but realities. Additionally, as Lt. Col. (US Army, Ret.) Tom Bearden pointed out in many papers and detailed publications, such studies were underway, with detailed and specific results that included the electromagnetic ability to construct interferometric patterns of "health and healing' as well as "disease inductioh", in the Soviet Union throughout the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. In addition to genetic therapies, it is even conceivable that such technologies might be electromagnetic "on or off" switches to regulate those genes controlling human aging.
My point here is that the idea of "electro-medicine" is not new at all. It is decades old, and there is a body of research - particularly from Russia - which indicates a measure of success, and perhaps even a great measure of success. Certainly in the case of Dr. Rife's experiments, the claims of cures of cancer were numerous, and that at a time that a diagnosis of any type of cancer was a certain death sentence.
And thus the other point is, that DARPA is DARPA, and it surely knows all this. What's really going on, I suspect, is that the real intention of the DARPA studies is to render the technologies practical for military application, and then, from there, toward the wider civilian population. This is disclosure, in other words, not invention.
See you on the flip side...
