Those so-called "sonic" attacks on American and Canadian diplomatic personnel in Cuba are back in the news again, and this time, medical technicians are finding evidence of actual physical brain damage. (This is a story many people sent various versions of, so a thank you to all of you following up on it):

Cuba mystery: U.S. doctors find brain abnormalities in victims

Now, there are a number of intriguing things here, both as to the type of physical alteration occurring, and what is now being said about the "weapon" behind it. Here are the paragraphs I'm concentrating on, toward the beginning of the article:

Doctors treating the United States Embassy victims of suspected attacks in Cuba have discovered brain abnormalities as they search for clues to explain hearing, vision, balance and memory damage, The Associated Press has learned.

It's the most specific finding to date about physical damage, showing that whatever it was that harmed the Americans, it led to perceptible changes in their brains. The finding is also one of several factors fuelling growing skepticism that some kind of sonic weapon was involved, as originally suspected.

Medical testing has revealed the embassy workers developed changes to the white matter tracts that let different parts of the brain communicate, several U.S. officials said, describing a growing consensus held by university and government physicians researching the attacks. White matter acts like information highways between brain cells.

Loud, mysterious sounds followed by hearing loss and ear-ringing had led investigators to suspect "sonic attacks." But officials are now carefully avoiding that term. The sounds may have been the byproduct of something else that caused damage, said three U.S. officials briefed on the investigation. They weren't authorized to discuss it publicly and demanded anonymity. (Emphasis added)

The article also notes the strong localization of the effect:

U.S. officials told the AP that investigators have now determined:

  • The most frequently reported sound patients heard was a high-pitched chirp or grating metal. Fewer recalled a low-pitched noise, like a hum.
  • Some were asleep and awakened by the sound, even as others sleeping in the same bed or room heard nothing.
  • Vibrations sometimes accompanied the sound. Victims told investigators these felt similar to the rapid flutter of air when windows of a car are partially rolled down.
  • Those worst off knew right away something was affecting their bodies. Some developed visual symptoms within 24 hours, including trouble focusing on a computer screen. (emphasis added)

And finally, the brain alterations detected most resemble concussion:

Studies have found both concussions and white matter damage in Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans who survived explosions yet had no other physical damage. But those injuries were attributed mostly to shock waves from explosions. No Havana patients reported explosions or blows to the head.

Now, regular readers of this website will recall that when this story first broke I did not think this was a "sonic weapon" per se, but rather, that the strong localized effects were the result of interferometry, very possibly of microwaves. When two or more waves intersect over a location, this intersection establishes an interference pattern, a beat frequency or a new wave of its own, which is present only in the area of intersected waves. This "beat frequency" could induce sensations in the audio-processing regions of the brain which would be "heard" by an individual in that region of interference, and depending on the resulting mixture of waves, be heard as a high chirping sound or a metal-grating-on metal sound. There is no mystery here, especially if one is familiar with the various patents utilizing precisely this phenomenon for mind manipulation and remote "voice of God in the head" technologies, for such interference patterns themselves can be made to modulate information - like voices - in the head.

What is thus intriguing about the article is that now "experts" are denying it was a sonic weapon; in other words, reading between the lines a bit, they have probably concluded that the phenomenon is some sort of manifestation of these principles. So why not acknowledge it?

It's possibly because the technology has resulted in actual physical modification of the brain remotely - no injections, no nano-bots, no vaccines (sorry, I couldn't resist), no exploding projectiles and resulting shock waves. What results are symptoms similar to concussion, and thus, one has a "remote induction of concussion" technology in play.

Why is that significant? Well, again, when this story first broke, I pointed to the work of U.S. Army Lt. Col. Tom Bearden (ret.), and to his studies of "electromagnetic medicine" that was undertaken in the Soviet Union. There, to make a very long and complicated story very short, Soviet scientists were able to "read" the electromagnetic signatures of healthy and diseases cell cultures, and then to reproduce both by means of such techniques remotely. (For those interested in this fascinating story, see Bearden's review of this research in his book Gravitobiology.) For years, American diplomatic personnel in Russia were subjected to a microwave bombardment and personnel there had higher-than-usual occurrences of various cancers.

Which brings us back to the article, and to Secretary of State Tillerson's remarks about the phenomenon:

The Cubans have urged the U.S. to release information about what it has found. FBI investigators have spent months comparing cases to pinpoint what factors overlap.

Tillerson says the U.S. has shared some information but that he's put two restrictions in place.

He says they won't share information that violates individuals' privacy or reveals their medical conditions. And he says he won't release information that helps the perpetrator determine how effective the attacks were.

Tillerson says he understands the Cubans don't like the actions the U.S. has taken in response. But he says the United States doesn't like having its diplomats come under attack.

(Emphasis added)

So in other words, it is now official, these incidents are being acknowledged as attacks. But there's more:

"What we've said to the Cubans is: Small island. You've got a sophisticated intelligence apparatus. You probably know who's doing it. You can stop it," Tillerson said. "It's as simple as that."

In other words, the USA is saying that the sources for such interfered waves probably originate on the island itself, and in close enough proximity to the places where these attacks occurred so as to allow very precise targeting.

Once again, however, I take issue with the conclusions the USA is drawing: Cuba may or may not be behind the phenomenon. After all, the techniques did originate in Soviet research and the connection between the countries is well-known. So that possibility, pace Tillerson, cannot be ruled out. But the trouble is, anyone with access to the technique and technologies - which by now have probably been greatly "miniaturized" - and who has access to the island could be behind the attacks. In this country, there are growing stories of similar incidents, and oftentimes, these incidents are indicative of non-state actors utilizing it for their own ends. The problem of motivation enters the picture, for while Cuba may and probably does have access to the technology, its motivation for souring relationships with the USA remain unclear. If anything, it would seem that the island nation would not want to endanger or jeopardize the fragile and just recently reestablished relations by such a stunt, leaving the question of who would, especially using a technique with clear though not very well-known ties to the former Soviet Union.

It's that "who" which remains a mystery here, but if I were the U.S. State Department, I would be considering all possibilities, including that of rogue factions within our own security structures, and that of extra-territorial actors with agendas of their own.

See you on the flip side...

    When one mention sound waves I picture those ancient alien’s moving stones in building. No doubt “they” used these sound waves for a myriad of purposes.
    Wave technologies are advanced; especially when waves enter/touch upon the quantum realm of dimensions. These mind/sound control connections must somehow interact w/in that border between the physical and the metaphysical?
    Sounds like these wannabe Gods are playing w/fires in California; sounding-out in Cuba – as if they wannabe heard/seen.

    Blame on the Cuban Bossa Nova?

    The simple fact that the Establishment is refusing to be straightforward about the cause indicates that the ‘source’ is exotic. I would place interferometry effects under plain-vanilla, whereas radionics is exotic to most. (I have dabbled in radionics, so I know it is real.) Radionics opens-up a whole can of worms for the Establishment, considering that a form of it is probably being used on human populations…

    Motivation is also interesting. Cubans (die-hard, communist old-guard aside) would like sanctions removed. Americans (die-hard, anti-communist old-guard aside) would like sanctions removed. No ‘intent’ there. Russians are probably neutral, especially on exposing ‘sensitive’ technology to public view.

    I would go with some group intent on ramping-up tension between the US and Russia. (Cuba is just the patsy.) Just the old divide-and-conquer ploy in new shoes…

    I doubt they are releasing even a significant portion of what they know. They may be continuing to offer a watered-down version of the story in order to keep secret just how much they know about the weapon used.

    If someone has weaponized some form of radionics/Hieronymous technology, then distance is not a factor. They could even be using that kind of technology as a targeting mechanism – just need a picture of the person or location.

    Bearden also discusses quantum-based weapons, which do not have restrictions of distance, either.

    I get the distinct feeling someone is making the same mistake that trashed the Atlantean civilization. Some people never learn . . . .

    On another note, did you see the article in RT about the group scanning the “anomalous visitor” asteroid for signs of alien technology?

    • sagat1 on December 13, 2017 at 9:38 am

      Yes – the cigar shaped object that’s a mile long, strangely dense and has hurtled into our solar system from nowhere. What raised my suspicion meter was that the stories in the MSM have tried to give the story credence by having Prof Hawking pipe up about the incident. Apparently scientists led by none other than ‘Stephen Hawking’ are using scanners to discover if it’s been sent by an alien civilisation. Of course this suggestion of it being articifical has similarities to the strange ‘moon’ of Mars, Phobos.

      I’m in the camp that the real Hawking’s no longer with us, and whenever they want the public at large to buy in to a particular theory they have the imposter backing it. The question then is why? Are we entering a new phase in their long term plans to seed the masses with the idea that not all asteroids are simply lumps of space rock and that some may well be articicial in origin and a threat to humanity. Perhaps this meme will be built upon in the coming years in order to take us into the ‘asteroid threat stage’ that Wernher von Braun was alleged to have confessed.

    USA’s clandestine apparatus has been cooking European brains for decades with this kind of technology. Local collaboration with corrupt officials makes Europe a playground for experiments.

    We know USA’s heavily fortified embassies as the source of all evil, using local civilians as lab rats in technology testing. Unfortunately, most Europeans are suffering from Stockholm syndrome.

    Americans are generally unaware of, what a USA boot print in European face looks like. Now they know. USA is the victim of its own tactics. Who is behind is anyone’s guess. Many have axe to grind.

    It’s interesting that after DECADES of reports like this from lots of people, duly dismissed as “nut cases”, the FBI and State Dept. are (apparently) suddenly mobilising to investigate.
