The more we find out about how the human mind works through today’s highly advanced technological research, the more power brokers and manipulators learn to control human beings. And what scares me the most is that the medium for takeover is has been in place for decades.
Tests by researcher Herbert Krugman showed that, while viewers were watching TV, right-brain activity outnumbered left-brain activity by a ratio of two to one. Put more simply, the viewers were in an altered state…in trance more often than not. They were getting their Beta-endorphin “fix.” To measure attention spans, psycho-physiologist Thomas Mulholland of the Veterans Hospital in Bedford, Massachusetts, attached young viewers to an EEG machine that was wired to shut the TV set off whenever the children’s brains produced a majority of alpha waves. Although the children were told to concentrate, only a few could keep the set on for more than 30 seconds! Most viewers are already hypnotized to varying degrees.
To deepen the trance is easy. The commercials or suggestions presented following this alpha-inducing broadcast are much more likely to be accepted by the viewer. The high percentage of the viewing audience that has somnambulistic-depth ability could very well accept the suggestions as commands–as long as those commands did not ask the viewer to do something contrary to his morals, religion, or self-preservation. By the age of 16, children have spent around 10,000 to 15,000 hours watching television and playing video games – that is more time than they spend in school! Last time I checked the average home has the TV set on for six hours and 44 minutes per day– three times the average rate of increase during the 1970s.
It obviously isn’t getting better…we are rapidly moving into an alpha-level world–very possibly the Orwellian world of “1984”–placid, glassy-eyed, and responding obediently to instructions. A research project by Jacob Jacoby, a Purdue University psychologist, found that of 2,700 people tested, 90 percent misunderstood even such simple viewing fare as commercials.
Only minutes after watching, the typical viewer missed 23 to 36 percent of the questions about what he or she had seen. Of course they did–they were going in and out of trance! If you go into a deep trance, you must be instructed to remember–otherwise you automatically forget. If you think that technological mind control techniques are a joke, read the following articles and decide for yourself if we have been “entranced.”
In the article, Reading Your Mind – And Injecting Smart Thoughts By Douglas Pasternak U.S. News & World Report, January 3/January 10, 2000, pp. 67, 68. The plan was laid out 15 years ago!
Buck Rogers, meet John Norseen. Like the comic-strip hero, a 20th century man stuck in the 25th century, Norseen feels he’s not quite in the right time. His brain-research ideas are simply too futuristic. And he admits his current obsession seems to have been lifted from a Rogers saga. The Lockheed Martin neuroengineer hopes to turn the “electrohypnomentalophone,” a mind-reading machine invented by one of Buck’s buddies, from science fiction into science fact. Norseen’s interest in the brain stems from a Soviet book he read in the mid-1980s, claiming that research on the mind would revolutionize the military and society at large. The former Navy pilot coined the term “BioFusion” to cover his plans to map and manipulate gray matter, leading (he hopes) to advances in medicine, national security, and entertainment.
He does not do the research but sees himself as the integrator of discoveries that will make BioFusion a reality. BioFusion would be able to convert thoughts into computer commands, predicts Norseen, by deciphering the brain’s electrical activity. Electromagnetic pulses would trigger the release of the brain’s own neurotransmitters to fight off disease, enhance learning, or alter the mind’s visual images, creating what Norseen has dubbed “synthetic reality.”The key is finding “brain prints.” “Think of your hand touching a mirror,” explains Norseen. “It leaves a fingerprint.” BioFusion would reveal the fingerprints of the brain by using mathematical models. “Just like you can find one person in a million through fingerprints,” he says, “you can find one thought in a million.”
It sounds crazy, but Uncle Sam is listening. The National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the Army’s National Ground Intelligence Center have all awarded small basic research contracts to Norseen, who works for Lockheed Martin’s Intelligent Systems Division. Norseen is waiting to hear if the second stage of these contracts – portions of them classified – comes through. Norseen’s theories are grounded in current science. Mapping human brain functions is now routine. By viewing a brain scan recorded by a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machine, scientists can tell what the person was doing at the time of the recording – say, reading or writing. Emotions from love to hate can be recognized from the brain’s electrical activity.
Thought police: So could the murderous thoughts of a terrorist, asserts Norseen, who wrote his thesis at the Naval War College on applying neuroscience research to antiterrorism. He has submitted a research-and-development plan to the Pentagon, at its request, to identify a terrorist’s mental profile. A miniaturized brain-mapping device inside an airport metal detector would screen passengers’ brain patterns against a dictionary of brain prints. Norseen predicted profiling by brain print wiould be in place by 2005.
