FACEBOOK AND THE EEG DICTIONARY

FACEBOOK AND THE EEG DICTIONARY

In my book Microcosm and Medium (available on Lulu print-on-demand books), I recounted the story of Gloria Naylor.  Briefly, Ms.  Naylor told a story of unbelievable harassment, which included hearing conversations in her head, urging her to kill herself. Being a successful authoress, with everything to live for, these conversations disturbed her, and she sought counseling, and was prescribed medications.

But the conversations continued, and neither the counseling nor the drugs seemed to help. over the course of a few weeks, she began to notice something very "odd" about those conversations: they only seemed to occur in certain places in her home. She made this discovery one evening when lying in bed trying to go to sleep. The "conversations" immediately started. She got out of bed, and moved across the room, and the "conversation" immediately stopped, only to resume again after a few minutes in her new location. Again, she moved, and the "conversation" stopped. Naylor came to an astonishing conclusion: she reasoned that someone was using a technology against her, and that it had to be aimed at her. When she moved, she moved out of the "target zone," and hence the conversations would momentarily cease.

Intrigued, Naylor investigated mind manipulation technologies, and made two astonishing discoveries: (1) they not only were possible, but remote methods had been patented that  could literally "beam" into one's brain, hence making her observations that her "conversation" was not a psychological disorder, but that someone was deliberately targeting her; and (2) that they actually had "dictionaries" based on brain waves that could be used to "decode" an individual's thoughts via their brain wave, but that could also project a conversation into an individual, based on modulating specific brainwave templates for specific words onto a carrier wave, such as a microwave.

Naylor's story intrigued me, not only for its fantastic and (some would say) incredible nature, but because the basic concepts behind it were possible. I investigated further and discovered that indeed work on reading brainwave patterns for specific words had been done, and a simple "electroencephalographic dictionary" of brainwave patterns had been compiled for about 2,000 words, in the 1970s. This research I summarized in Microcosm and Medium.

With that context in mind, consider this story shared by E.J.:

Facebook is funding brain experiments to create a device that reads your mind

Pay attention to the implications of these opening statements:

In 2017, Facebook announced that it wanted to create a headband that would let people type at a speed of 100 words per minute, just by thinking.

Now, a little over two years later, the social-media giant is revealing that it has been financing extensive university research on human volunteers.

Today, some of that research was described in a scientific paper from the University of California, San Francisco, where researchers have been developing “speech decoders” able to determine what people are trying to say by analyzing their brain signals.

The research is important because it could help show whether a wearable brain-control device is feasible and because it is an early example of a giant tech company being involved in getting hold of data directly from people’s minds.

To some neuro-ethicists, that means we are going to need some rules, and fast, about how brain data is collected, stored, and used.(Emphasis added)

While the concerns about privacy - especially with a company like Facebook - are legitimate, it's with the implications of that first statement that we are concerned in today's high octane speculation, for a device that would allow people to "type at a speed of 100 words per minute, just by thinking," means two things: (1) it requires the concept of the electroencephalographic dictionary to even make the technology work, and (2) to be able to work with the public implies that that electroencephalographic dictionary has now grown in its vocabulary to much more than a meager 2,000 words. And obviously, as Ms. Naylor experienced, and as the article implies, such a technology could be a two-way door, not only from the individual "typing" thoughts, but also into that individual.

But there's another lesson here, another implication. As noted, this "electroencephalographic dictionary" work began in the 1970s. That, at least, is the publicly available information, though it does not strain reason to assume the research began in secrecy prior to that. But even then, that 1970s research was not "public" in the sense that it was widely known outside the narrow professional group conducting and/or funding that research. So stop and consider: from the 1970s, to this now fully public article and its implications  in 2019, is a period of 49 years, which we can "round up" to a nice even 50 years. In other words, there's been a lag of about half a century between the actual development of a capability that was clearly done in the "black projects world," and its initial appearance as a concept available to the wide public.  And that's not factoring in the possible and in my opinion probable exploration of that capability entirely in secret for any number of  years before its acknowledgement to the professional public.

Half a century.

See you on the flip side...

    For anyone not already aware of Dr. Katherine Horton, she is a very targeted individual & is taking the psychopaths to court!! The “Tin Foil Hat” is no joke!! It actually works & at times she even had to sleep in a bathtub to get protection from the targeting!! She is a scientist who worked at CERN. A very Brave Lady!!

    1. Yeh. Doc’s done interviews with her. She still kinda feels suspect to me. I always have to wonder how the jerks who attack her haven’t just killed her. Then I gotta wonder how she’s been able to make any kinda living since this started. Finally I gotta wonder how she hasn’t gotten shielding down to as fine a science as anyone can given her education.

  2. I did a lot of research on this aspect when I was going to brainwave-regulating courses at The Monroe Institute. There, they would ‘walk’ the brainwaves of each hemisphere of the brain together in frequency until the brain could not identify which ear the sound was coming-through.That would somehow cause signals through the corpus callosum, leading to hemisphere synchronization and deep-meditation states. That was over thirty years ago, so I wonder how advanced the ‘tech’ is, now.

    The above being said, I doubt if FB can pull-out (or inject) anything more than basic moods from a ‘headband’. The headband is basically reading an overall potential, synthesized from thousands/millions of neuron firing. It can tell beta from alpha, theta from delta, and so on. Not words or phrases.

    I would fear more from “Now, a little over two years later, the social-media giant is revealing that it has been financing extensive university research on human volunteers.” This is the public face of a dedicated lab. They have who-knows-what level of complexity and sophistication in their instrumentation. No-expense-spared, lab-grade stuff; not ‘headbands’. Including stuff that can be done with pixel-patterns influencing the brain. And, my end-of-the-twig speculation is that what they find is going directly to the alphabet agencies and other ‘operatives’.

    I do want to branch-out from the “hearing conversations in her head” scenario. Telepathy exists. True telepathy, not machine-assisted ‘telepathy’. And, I have no doubt that P1-P10 individuals (to use B5 ‘Psi Corps’ jargon) exist and are part of an organization with a Manhattan Project level-of-secrecy. And those are humans. It is reputed that ‘other’ species are natively telepathic. So, I would not put all my eggs in the one-basket of machine-assisted ‘telepathy’. (And, that does not even include Higher good/evil non-corporeal entities…)

      Hard to draw a line between private research and so-called public research. Although one is financed by the public and gifted to the connected business; the other is financed by private industry that the public bought into. Either way, the public pays in too many ways to Sunday.

    2. Read this about 6 years ago.

      Alien Mind: The Thought and Behavior of Extraterrestrials Paperback – June 2, 2010
      by George LoBuono

      LoBuono brought up some related ideas. Felt like most of what I learned from him came in the form of cautionary tale. I found his point of view oddly submissive. He seemed to perceive himself as self assured and independent. At least he viewed himself that way much more than I did. Felt like he submitted himself and permitted a lot of abuse of himself. And as always, one must step back and wonder if the guy isn’t hallucinating all this to himself.

      Guess the most pertinent point I had not considered is the what if perspective. We all at some time or another fantasize having this or that power beyond what we think is normal human range of powers. Few of us ever consider what profound changes and responsibilities come with such powers. Or at least it feels like few do. Similar to documentaries I have seen on lottery winners. Something like 99+% are ruined by winning. They’re homeless and broke in a year or two. It’s a tsunami on their lives. The only couple I suspect did well won like $32M decades ago near St Louis. They brought their ticket into declare their winnings 364 days after the win. They had one day left to declare. They brought in a team of lawyers and security. Clearly, they spent 364 days preparing for the transition, formed corporations, everything. Then dissappeared.

      There’s good and bad possibilities in all possibilities.

      BTW, that brain wave syncing to the corpus callosum is an interesting concept. More so today. The little I learned of the metabolic disease that is autistic syndrome screams that it’s the corpus callosum that’s being tortured.

  3. Dr Richard Alan Miller was working on this type of stuff for the military in the 70s. You should interview him. Very colorful character.

  4. Always knew there was a reason I never threw away that “Tin foil hat”. It’s a Faraday cage to keep the demons (or microwaves) out of your head.

  5. Comments below brought up another thought. The article is well worth reading at length. And the female subject is owed a debt from all of us we will probably never be able to pay. Like the first pacemaker recipient to figure out that Medtronic knowingly installed a defective system. She was a Wisconsin nurse who died and was revived and later recognized the symptoms of a defective connection to her pacemaker. Docs fixed it and she lived to file FOIA requests to internal documents at MDT which showed they did a Ford Pinto.

    The number of cases who would figure it out and sue them wasn’t worth the expense of getting their contractor to fix the connection. They went on killing people and profitting. That’s the case that went to the Supremes and they won on the exemption that Bayer is trying to skate away with glyphosate on. The Supremes ruled for MDT since the Nurse was in Wisconsin and MDT is Minnesota based eh?

    Now we have a woman who figured out someone had gotten into her head. This case got to the point where she was having arguments with the op at the other end of the line. Sounded like he got progressively more and more frustrated and obscene. Kinda like all the trolls the government has paid to attack conspiracy theorists. There’s been case after case of govt employees becoming conspiracy theorists as a result of being assigned to surveil and harrass conspiracy theorists. Funny about that empire thing how the low level imperial servant usually gets converted to the indigenous system. Dance with wolves much? Avatar lately? Have you read your Weston Price today?

    Huge hats off to this woman. What a think to prevail with eh? Sure hope she writes a book soon. I want to see her interview of the op that ran her system.

    1. BTW again. I have not danced with a wolf. I have with a coyote though. Read up on predator prey relations and pressure animals. An idea I mostly got from Monty Roberts. Chase a pressure based animal (I think all mammals) and they will run. When safe, they will turn and pursue the pursuer. They’re smart enough to know they need more knowledge.

      So at 2am I chased a coyote who pass by my driveway. Sprint for me, glide for her. After a block, she turned off into bushes. I immediately turned and ran back to my driveway. She came out and followed. I turned and chased her again. Back and forth like this a few times (I was too winded to count) until standing in front of my driveway she walked right up to me with a look like “What. What do you want?” Coulda touched her. Smart enough to scare her off and leave her alone. Seen how many magnitudes of order coyotes are dog than domestic dogs are. Realized then that Monty Roberts was spot on. This is almost certainly how indigenous hunt and hunted and got hold of their first horses.

      This all also brings to mind how this same process is what’s going on with whatever we want to call this entity that the WGOE have called up to contend with us. Call it Illuminati, Jesuits, Vatican, Pilgrim Society, CFR, Deep State, DARPA, Captain Underpants Cult, whatever. These folk are leveraging for a deeper connection to gain greater control and greater leverage over us. This system necessarily works the way all predator prey systems work – with pressure.

      So yeh, I want to get that woman and her operator in a room together and for a long time. I want her to get her pound of flesh and then some. Then I want to hear what the two of them crowdsource once reconciled.

      1. Great comment, ZDB. We had deer doing the same thing. They would startle and run away, but return out of curiosity. One time, I looked up from a deep hole I was digging, and there was a mini-herd standing nearby (around ten feet away) – just watching me with great interest. Good times. I could also get wild turkey groups to gobble with me. If you hit just the right tone/speed, the whole group would join you. God knows what was being ‘said’. but it was fun…

        1. There’s so much more meaning in every sound and body language that we are not getting. We’ve been disneyfied into stupidity.

          John Dudley Is Surrounded By Wolves (from Joe Rogan Experience #783)

          And Rogan is wrong. They can count. They can do whatever math is practical to their life.

          1. We raise free range chickens and throw grain on the ground for them. The wild turkeys are pretty smart as they come by every day. Every year we get a new batch of baby’s to continue the cycle. It’s been my pleasure to watch and learn about the different mom and baby turkey calls when they get separated.
            As for the coyotes, they have been known to trick a dog by playing with it and getting it closer to the pack and attacking it. Plus they kill my chickens. Maybe you have the nicer well behaved city coyote😃

          2. Nah. I just had her on good terms (no friends backing her or me up). Knew those terms would not last so I discontinued relationship (all of 4 minutes of it) before it developed further. Yep, I imagine there are videos on youtube of dogs being baited like that. Just like the kidnap crews at airports and trains stations. Hari Krishna used to use them and disappear college kids. The crazier videos are of fox playing bunnies into lunch.

  6. This allows the folk who claim authority over us to sell the public (their sheeple) on a NEED to redefine boundaries and definitions. There’s a whole list of Minority Report terms that get questioned: lie, truth, intent, memory, desire, trust, faith,………….. This goes into all directions of mind governance, religion, relationships of all kinds. I already trust the tech about as much as I trust lie detectors and fingerprints.

    What a surprise that the same guy who brought us fingerprints for generations of legal oppression (prohibition laws much anyone?) is the same guy who brought us modern day social darwinism and eugenics. Gotta love conspiring lying filthy rich cousins like Darwin and Galton.

    BTW, did anyone else run across an internet trope last night about Bill Gates’ grandpa heading security for the oil field security companies that gunned down wildcat strikers for Rockefellers? Think it was for Brinks the way the Pinkertons did the coal miners in Colorado.

    1. Fabulous posts Zendogbreath. I really liked the coyote story. What an amazing confrontation!

      1. definitely not confrontation. it was a pleasure meeting her. she obviously enjoyed it. i’m a dog kinda guy. pained me much to drive her off. glad i did. bad scenario would have been that it turned into confrontation. worst case scenario, she and i would have bonded.

  7. This has long been a meme of many a science fiction story, novel, movie, television series. Add eleven years to the forty-nine years to round off Ben Rich rule this has been the wet dream of our elites the perfect slave creation control system.

  8. I wonder if metaphor and other analogical thinking could spoof or fool the tech. Could analogues exist to keep the thoughts out of the dictionary.

    Like Darmok & Gilead at Tenegre.

    The mention of meditation above; not a bad idea. Meditation is ceasing to talk to one’s self. I wonder if meditation would yield an empty set of data… probably when they turn on the juice, eh? Think Harrison Bergeron:
    “Gee – I could tell that one was a doozy,” said Hazel.
    “You can say that again,” said George.
    “Gee-” said Hazel, “I could tell that one was a doozy.”

    Shaka, the walls fell.

    [Post as I read]
    I remember Ms. Naylor very well. Immediate recognition w/o having to read further.
    [Cool picture. Facebook reflection in the eye/
    The 21st Century’s ubiquitous social mirror.]

    Again, immediately after reading the headline/
    the trickle down black research treasures are being commercialized to $elected bu$ine$$e$
    [w/CIA connection$]

    Could have used that 100wpm in typing class.
    Now there’s a time travel item to bring back w/you.
    Or, would it work?
    Facebook working on it for over two years w/beaucoup volunteers. Wonder if our glorious & industrious[or is it financialized] pre$$ corp participated?

    Can’t wait to get my speech decorder
    and use it w/my Dick Tracey[oops!, wrong timeline].

    Wearable $19.95.
    Advanced embedded chip?
    Pricele$$!
    [oops! Master card own$ that word; just ask Ralph Nader.]

    The hackers are going to have a field day extravaganza!

    Well, Public Schools are now going to do away w/text & human teachers. Private schools will have special proprietary connection$.

    The thing I$; this technology is now dated. The new stuff is already being prepped for later “dicoverie$, to be gifted to those $selected family bi$ connection$. Got to keep those very expen$$ive, publicaly funded, $ecret$ to be tricled-down, in the exclu$ive financialized capitali$t familie$.

  10. Dear Dr. Farrell,
    Your really taking the funny out of those tin foil hat jokes. 🙂
    Regards, GD

  11. Combine this with 5G, a little holography, and viola, you could put on quite a show. You could no longer believe what you “see” nor what you “think”.

  12. The existence of these technologies is a good reason for us to be trained in meditation so that we do not react to thoughts that are not ours and hopefully know the difference between thoughts that are ours and not ours.

    1. These devices Enki are 2-way. So in theory we could “reprogramme” the programmers by coherent thought….

      1. “The reign in spane falls mainly in the plane” – is that spelling right? Yes, when taking the individual words….

        1. Dana T.,
          I think their moto would be, ” we’ll reign ‘ore your brain to make you insane”….. I like your 2-way thought idea…. give them a big fat RETURN TO SENDER!
