K.B. and M.W. spotted this story, and it turns out there's more information coming out now about the brain damage/modification that the victims of those strange noises in the American embassy in Havana suffered:

US Embassy Staff in Cuba Show Unusual Brain Changes After Alleged 'Sonic Attacks'

What's interesting about this article is not only what it says, but what it does not say. In the "what it does say" department, we have this:

More than two years after several dozen U.S. embassy workers in Cuba reported experiencing bizarre sensory symptoms, including loud noises and unusual vibrations, exactly what happened to them remains a mystery.

Now, a new study adds to the intrigue.

The study, which used advanced brain-imaging technologies, revealed distinct differences in the brains of embassy workers who were potentially exposed to the bizarre phenomena, compared with healthy people who were not exposed.

In particular, the researchers found differences in a brain area known as the cerebellum, which is responsible for coordination of movements, such as those involved in walking and balance, according to the study, published today (July 23) in the journal JAMA. [27 Oddest Medical Case Reports]

This finding is notable given that a number of the embassy workers show abnormalities in balance and coordination of eye movements, said study co-author Dr. Randel Swanson, an assistant professor of physical medicine and rehabilitation at the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine.

So, the affected areas were (1) the cerebellum and (2) balance and coordination. But then there are some extremely intriguing, and separated, remarks later in the article:

In late 2016, some U.S. embassy workers serving in Havana reported hearing sudden, loud noises or feeling vibrations or movement in the air around them, Live Science previously reported. These experiences were followed by a variety of neurological symptoms, including dizziness, balance problems and difficulty with concentration and memory.


The brain images showed that, compared with healthy people, the U.S. embassy workers had lower volumes of white matter — long nerve fibers that allow areas of the brain to communicate, the study found.

In addition, compared with healthy people, U.S. embassy workers showed differences in brain tissue volume and tissue integrity in their cerebellum.

The particular pattern of brain differences seen in the study is unlike that of any other brain disease or condition seen in previously published research, the authors said.(Emphasis added)

So we have (1) the affected areas of the brain of US embassy personnel in Havana were the cerebellum, which affects balance and coordination, (2) they experienced difficulty with concentration and memory, (3) they have lower volumes of brain tissue and "integrity", and (4) a diminishment of nerve fibers. The last point (4) intrigues me because during my recent get-together with some  members of this website, one of those members is doing rather intriguing research in neuro-physiology, coordinating it with the logical and metaphysical work of the philosopher Charles Saunders Peirce, and one of the things he mentioned (and I'm vastly over-simplifying what was a very long discussion) was that they had discovered a kind of back-channel or feedback mechanism in neural pathways that allowed the mind to "check its work", a kind of "neural" version of phase conjugation, to draw an analogy. They are real and special physiological features, so to speak, and directly related to things like concentration. And some interference with them appears to be operating in what the embassy personnel experienced, which would imply a rather up-to-date neural physiological basis of whatever technologies produced the phenomenon to begin with.

Bear that in mind as we now turn to a portion of the article that I cannot help but speculate is perhaps a bit of deliberate misdirection:

In 2018, the same group of researchers at UPenn published a study that documented neurological symptoms of 21 of the Havana U.S. embassy workers. That study found that many of those individuals had symptoms similar to those seen in people with concussions or mild traumatic brain injury, although in the Havana cases, there was no evidence of blunt head trauma, the authors said. At that time, the researchers also noted that it was unclear how exposure to sounds — even a sonic weapon — could have caused such symptoms. [Mind-Controlled Cats?! 6 Incredible Spy Technologies That Are Real] (Emphasis added)

My speculation here is on two tracks, the first being that the pushing of the "sonic weapon" meme in respect to the curious Cuban embassy attacks may be a bit of misdirection, since most studies of remote mind manipulation technologies concentrate on the use of frequencies in the radio-microwave end of the spectrum, and not on those frequencies within the human hearing range. Indeed, when I've blogged before about the embassy attacks, I've point out that some of these same symptoms can be, and have been, induced by means of multi-wave mixing in the radio-microwave range, establishing beat frequences within a particular region that might be audible, and that might induce the trauma reported. Anyone who has done even a passing search into such technologies will encounter them all over the place, and I wrote about a few of them in my book Microcosm and Medium. I thus cannot help but entertain the speculation that these public releases about the embassy attacks are perhaps a bit of deliberate misdirection and obfuscation to keep people focused away from such technologies. This remains my preferred view for the moment.

But the second track takes me back to my friend's research and some of its rather astonishing implications, and to the possibility that a completely sonic method - i.e., one not reliant upon multiwave mixing and interferometry in the radio-microwave range - might indeed be at work. It is possible - after the early 1960s and 1970s research of Gavreau in France (incidentally, in some very black research projects in DeGaulle's France at the time) to contemplate infrasonic means and methods, through a similar process of sonic interferometry, that could induce such effects. In Microcosm and Medium I briefly reviewed Soviet era research into the neurological effects of various sounds, and types of music, on neural pathways, even to the extent that some styles of music improved the ability to remember and concentrate (and yes, it was that 18th century stuff), and some types positively inhibited it (and need I say what it is?) So let's extend the speculation some more: in Microcosm and Medium I also pointed out that some very early mind manipulation research was devoted to the creation of what I called "electroencephalographic dictionaries", i.e., the ability to remotely read brain waves of specific  words, and by reverse process, to project those templates on modulated microwaves into an individual (or group's) brains, producing a kind of interior conversation. That, of course, was done with microwaves, but what if one could create similar 'electroencephalographic dictionaries" via the sounds that are produced by specific words (and for those who know about the phenomenon of the harmonic series, all it takes, to over simplify, is stepping tones down several octaves in order to do so). Similarly, by projecting or modulating those tones, one could create a similar effect, perhaps, as with the microwave methods of doing so. If so, then by the same token, one could create the sonic templates to affect specific areas of the brain with specific types of traumas that due to their sonic nature would be like blunt force trauma effects, without any signs of blunt force. And that in turn would indicate a great deal of progress in mind manipulation technologies and a sophistication that is quite frightening.

There is, of course, a flaw in this speculation, namely, that the victims (to my knowledge) do not report hearing "words" or "music" or anything else but a kind of metallic grinding noise.

At least, as far as we've been told.

See you on the flip side...

    Not one to add a flash point to your “high octane speculations,” but suspect you know something of this cerebellum manipulated induced movement behaviour already, as a certain few made it known early on about certain dark experimentation that went black in the sixties and seventies.

    For instance, take one gizmo-gadget that is radio frequency (RF) controlled / combination RF controller, implant it into an otherwise fully grown and large horned ferocious bull’s brain about the brain, you-know-where, rile up that bull to charging the cape, flip the switch, and suddenly watch that charging bull begin turning in circles until that switch is turned off. . . . . Or this one, take one Rhesus Monkey, implant similar device into brain, allow the monkey to become very hungry, give the monkey one formula bottle to sustain it, the monkey begins hungrily feeding, flip the switch on, the monkey suddenly loses interest in feeding, becomes limp dropping the formula bottle and simply appears dazed with little eye movement or skeletal muscle motion to pick up the bottle formula it eyes and hungerly yearns.

    Those were early behaviour modification trials carried out, documented, and recorded on the bulky early video cassettes of the time. Those were broad spectrum frequencies used then – Imagine how and what [Precision] articulated frequencies would be able to focus onto and into as these modulated and directed frequencies accompanied the usual radio frequencies through walls of many construction materials with intent and purpose of modifying studied behavioral subjects based on previously collected profiles and arranged environmental conditions. Very dark stuff indeed! Likely the reason why over the air television frequencies were modified during you-know-when not to long ago. Note the behavioral changes since over one decade. Ask yourself, “How easily are optical frequencies modified and manipulated per device?” Potential for very dark stuff en masse, indeed. Who are they who call these “Mind Games?”

      Not speaking as a big Trumpster…but had wondered while watching the utter flipping out of the Trump haters… are they doing some tech manipulation on the minds of these people? Are signals sent out through the MSM channels that they feed on? Those of us that feed on alternative news free lancers and avoid the “official” channels stand totally bewildered at what can only be labeled as nothing less than a psychosis, like all that has gone wrong in the lives of these people is funneled through the hatred of Trump. So, yeah, I wondered… are they screwing with these poor people’s heads? And you can be apolitical to be amazed at this phenomenon.

        Been thinking along that line awhile. Feels like guided demagoguery. Like Tommy Robinson coopting English Nationalists. One might notice while he says and does racist stuff, he never says anything that might expose globalist banksters.

    Remember reading and watching years ago dolphins driving prey with their sonar. This is what I can find on today’s yt algo’s.
    www youtube com/watch?v=-xm9PjKdf00
    The advanced hunting strategy of a dolphin – The Wonder of Animals: Episode 9 – BBC Four

    My thoughts go more to the fact that sonar is for much more than echolocation (or viewing 3 dimensionally).

    Now combine that phenomena with possibilities surrounding heterodyned waves.

    I am going to go with a non-technological ‘end of the twig’ argument on these cases:
    They have to do with interference by other entities (seen or unseen).

    From the original article:
    “In late 2016, some U.S. embassy workers serving in Havana reported hearing sudden, loud noises or feeling vibrations or movement in the air around them, Live Science previously reported. These experiences were followed by a variety of neurological symptoms, including dizziness, balance problems, and difficulty with concentration and memory.”

    I had originally attributed these ‘symptoms’ with working-within an embassy and being subjected to who-knows-what electronic emissions from embassy equipment. “Blowback” as it were…

    With the excellent summation of the symptoms, I made an intuitive connection: These are the exact same ‘symptoms’ reported by those who have been interfered-with in psychic and spiritual encounters. I mean exact . These symptoms have been reported down through the ages, well before any fancy gadgetry existed. So, unless Anunnaki descendants were using ancient, remnant technology on these folks, these ‘encounters’ could be non-technological.

    They can be broken down into two distinct groups:

    First, basically a psychic attack by a live human. The noted symptoms are very similar to those reported by a large number of ‘victims’ of such attacks. Since modern humans are woefully untrained in deflecting/returning such attacks, those embassy workers were easy pickings…

    Second, the calling-in of ‘outside help’ in attacking your target. Use whatever jargon your culture has adopted in labeling this ‘help’. Cuba is interesting, as several beyond-physical traditions reside there.

    As far as the physical changes in the brains, I would look to the ‘healing’ tradition within the psychic/spiritual world. One English psychic (Manning?) was good enough to reverse physical bone decay due to cancer in a client. The guy’s jaw literally grew back. With that in mind, think of what you could do if your intent was to harm…

    A yes Cuba the perfect scapegoat for covering up our master’s evil plans they use to oppress us.

    Hard to believe the offending frequencies were not intercepted at an embassy.

    First thoughts before reading whole blog:
    writers who support the narrative!;
    cure worse than the disease?

    Found the symptoms particularly worrisome as those were my symptoms when the U.S. Army gave me pills to induce muscular disorders[back in 1970-1].
    The plus side of the experience: I never took and/or considered taking ANY more of their cures. They cause the problems then arrange the solutions. Where have we heard B4?
    Fibers? Chemtrails.

    Real world interference…
    Back later.

      While out-and-about I happened across this August’s Atlantic propaganda piece entitled/Your Brain On Smog[Mexico City]. According to the status-quo narrator/… pollution triggers dementia… degenerating neurons, twisted protein fibers, plague deposits-telltale signs used to diagnose Alzheimer’s in humans.[no mention of Chemtrails and/or nanoparticles].

      The brain images showed…
      What happened after the U.S. officials added some exotic-extra touches[never let a so-called Cuban Crisis go to waste].

      Compared to U.S. commodities… er, U.S. normal citizens; government employees showed a different brain[my reading/mission accomplished].

      No doubt the sound technology is being explored in many venues, including mind manipulation.
      The grey matter in your skulls is the current target area for complete full-spectrum-dominance objectives.

    Possibly a bit of proof of concept testing prior to the rollout of 5G? Certainly wouldn’t be the first time the government used segments of its, or other nations, population/military personnel for experimentation. Done in Cuba for that plausible deniability/redirection of blame. Saturating a nation with transmitters would be one way of subduing a population using such methods. The fact that 5G will not be allowed in a certain small ME nation makes me wonder…

    • Robert Barricklow on July 26, 2019 at 1:58 pm

      Fits like a velvet glove holding a 5G hammer.

    A brain scanner, capable of reading minds, would be of interest to the keyhole people, listening at the door.

    American embassies are generally perceived, as Roman fortifications, behind bulletproof glass, posing as diplomacy.

    Whoever is reading pea brains of Skull and Bones, will only find Pompy’s word of wisdom: cheating, stealing, lying.
