July 1996


Today's "Less Than Lethal" concept of "Low Intensity Warfare"
stomps with a crack and a fizzle around the corridors of military
power. The Pentagon's crew-cut communication commandos will tell
you that Non-Lethal Defence weapons won't kill you. Maybe. What
they don't tell you is that their new-age, high-tech,
gizmo-logical armory has been secretly honed to mind-numbing
efficiency. Specifically, it is your mind that has been scheduled
for numbing and, if necessary, erased altogether.

Your future shot of non-lethal Novocain may take the form of an
electromagnetic field that will cocoon your every thought.
Flowing from this invisible field will be an inaudible "command"
message -- a sort of "stealth e-mail" -- that will infiltrate
directly into your unconscious. The whole caboodle has been
lovingly designed to re-programme the way you think -- and even
what you think. Alternatively, at the mere flip of a switch you
might simply be turned off altogether.

The fact is that thought can be controlled -- remotely. There's
no need to attach wires or electrodes. Nowadays, the spooks of
Langley, Fort George C. Meade and elsewhere, can hack straight
into the grey cells of your most precious organ. To many, this
scenario may appear to be the rabid fantasizing of an "X Files"
fruit-cake. Not so. The truth may be out there, but so is the
technology and the will to use it.

Re-Experiencing an "Experience Set"

"New World Vistas" was a major undertaking by the US Air Force
Scientific Advisory Board, to examine future developments in
weapons. Published in 1996, it totalled 14 volumes of studies.
The fifteenth "ancillary" volume contained some hair-raising
insights into the future "coupling" of man and machine. Tucked
away on page 89 is a section dealing with "Biological Process
Control." The author speaks of an "explosion" of knowledge in
the field of neuroscience. He then proceeds to his main point,
"One can envision the development of electromagnetic energy
sources, the output of which can be pulsed, shaped and focused,
that can couple with the human body in a fashion that will allow
one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions
(and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions,
interfere with both short-term and long-term memory, produce an
experience set and delete an experience set."[1] Translating the
words "experience set" from military jargon into plain English,
this simply means your entire life's "memories" can be erased
and a new, fictitious memory implanted.

There is a lot of debate whether these mind-weapons are already
in "low profile" service. Arguably they are. By projecting such
"developments" into the future, the authors of "New Vistas" may
have hitched on to an old trick -- anesthetizing the public to
camouflage present day abilities. In another US Military
publication, a similar futuristic scenario was adopted. Published
by the US Army War College in 1994, "The Revolution in Military
Affairs and Conflict Short of War" contains many references to
mind manipulation. Authors Steven Metz and James Kievit observe,
for example, "Behavior modification is a key component of peace
enforcement."[2] They go on to note that, "The advantage of
[using] directed energy systems is deniability."[3] Savvy
individuals the authors then ask "Against whom is such
deniability aimed?"[4] The answer simply is "deniability must be
aimed at the American people."[5] So much for "open government"
in the brave new world's brave new age.

Setting Buck Rogers to the forefront, the writers proceed to
layout a futuristic scenario set in the year 2010, that utilizes
"perception moulding" and "advanced psychotechnologies" to avoid
irksome public protest. But that is just the beginning. The major
problem they believe is that "traditional American ethics [are] a
major hindrance." And thus, sadly, "old-fashioned notions of
personal privacy and national sovereignty [are to be]
changed."[6] Individual citizens unwilling to go along with the
revolutionary changes are "identified using comprehensive
interagency integrated database." They are then "categorized" and
subjected to "sophisticated computerized personality simulations
used to develop, tailor and focus psychological campaigns for
[against] each."[7]

Other techniques are to be used in association with these new
mind weapons. These include "morphing" -- a present day ability
that distorts TV images and presents them in a wholly believable
way. In other words "computer inventions."[8] If you are one of
those citizens lucky enough not to have their brains
electronically scrambled -- or erased -- it won't really matter.
The electronic media will manipulate the news especially for you,
by presenting convincing near-real-life visual images through
your combined TV set cum Internet interface. In this brave new
revolutionary world, seeing will be believing, even though it is
entirely false. The only real difference between Orwell's bleak
vision of 1984, and the aims of today's military mandarins, is
that you'll be watching your TV set -- it won't be watching you.
Orwell can be forgiven for his oversight. In his day it was
unimaginable that mankind would voluntarily submit itself to

Whilst these new-age Da Vinci's continue to create their speckled
visions of our future, we should be prepared to ask some hard
questions now. Specifically, the major question to pose is whether
this technology is really futuristic, or whether it is present
day? To answer this we need to look at history. As we do this, we
should bear in mind that security classification acts as a brake
on time. What happens in the Pentagon today often takes as many
as twenty years to filter out to the public. Technology is
advancing at such a fantastic rate that it is redundant as soon
as it leaves the drawing board. Computers, for example are
doubling in power, and reducing in size by a half, every eighteen

The Mind-Festering History of Thought Control

As far back as WWII research was being conducted into thought
manipulation. The earliest extant reference -- to my knowledge
-- was contained in the U.S. Strategic Bombing Survey (Pacific
Survey, Military Analysis Division, Volume 63) which reviewed
Japanese WWII research and development efforts on a "Death Ray".
Whilst not reaching the stage of practical application, research
was considered to be sufficiently promising to warrant the
expenditure of 2 million Yen during the years 1940-1945.
Summarizing Japanese efforts at the war's conclusion, allied
scientists believed that a ray apparatus might be developed that
could kill unshielded human beings at a distance of 5 to 10
miles. Studies demonstrated that, for example, automobile engines
could be stopped by tuned waves as early as 1943.[9] Research on
living organisms (mice and ground hogs) showed that waves from 2
meters to 60 centimeters in length caused hemorrhage of lungs,
whereas waves shorter than two meters destroyed brain cells.

Experiments in these areas have a grisly past. Nazi doctors at
Dachau concentration camp conducted involuntary experiments with
hypnosis and narco-hypnosis -- using the drug mescaline -- on
inmates. Additional research was conducted at Auschwitz, using a
range of chemicals including various barbiturates and morphine
derivatives. Many of these experiments proved fatal. Following
the conclusion of the war the U.S. Navy was tasked with obtaining
industrial and scientific secrets that had been developed by the
Third Reich. Following a lengthy report the Navy instigated
Project CHATTER in 1947. Many of the Nazi scientists and medical
doctors who conducted hideous wartime experiments were later
recruited by the U.S. Army and worked out of Heidelberg, Germany.
Later they were secretly relocated to the United States under the
top secret programme "Project PAPERCLIP." Under the leadership
of Dr. Hubertus Strughold, 34 ex-Nazi scientists accepted
"Paperclip" contracts, authorized by the Joint Chiefs of Staff,
and were put to work at Randolph Air Force Base, San Antonio,
Texas. By 1953 the CIA, US Navy and the US Army Chemical Corps
-- mirroring their pet Nazi's methods -- commenced their own
narco-hypnosis experiments on involuntary victims. These included
prisoners, mental patients, foreigners, ethnic minorities and
those classified as sexual deviants.[10] The secrecy surrounding
these experiments was so tight that it lasted almost thirty
years. During the middle 1970's the US public learned, for the
first time, of a series of secret programmes that had been
conducted by the military and intelligence community.[11]
Primarily focusing on narco-hypnosis these covert programmes
were extensive and were assigned project titles: MKULTRA,
MKDELTA, MKNAOMI, MKSEARCH (MK being understood to stand for
Mind Kontrol), BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE and CHATTER. The principal
aim of these and associated programmes was the development of
a reliable "programmable" assassin. Secondary aims were the
development of a method of citizen control.[12]

Particularly relevant was Dr. Jose Delgado's secret work
directed towards the creation of a "psycho-civilized" society
by use of a "stimoceiver."[13] Delgado's work was seminal and
his experiments on human and animals, demonstrated that
electronic stimulation can excite extreme emotions including
rage, lust, fatigue etc. In his paper "Intracerebral Radio
Stimulation and Recording in Completely Free Patients,"
Delgado observed that: "Radio Stimulation on different points
in the amygdala and hippocampus in the four patients produced
a variety of effect, including pleasant sensations, elation,
deep thoughtful concentration, odd feelings, super relaxation
(an essential precursor for deep hypnosis),[14] colored
visions, and other responses." The "colored visions" citation,
probably referred to hallucinations -- an effect that a number
of so called "victims" allude to.[15]

As far back as 1969, Delgado predicted the day would soon
arrive when a computer would be able to establish two-way
radio communication with the brain, an event that first
occurred in 1974. Lawrence Pinneo, a neurophysiologist and
electronic engineer working for Stanford Research Institute
(a leading military contractor), "developed a computer system
capable of reading a person's mind. It correlated brain waves
on an electroencephalograph with specific commands. Twenty
years ago the computer responded with a dot on a TV
screen. Nowadays it could be the input to a stimulator (ESB)
in advanced stages using radio frequencies."[16]

In the event,narco-hypnosis was found to be less than
reliable, although some writers and observers dispute
this.[17] Additional studies conducted by Dr. Ewen Cameron,
and funded by the CIA, were directed towards erasing memory
and imposing new personalities on unwilling patients. Cameron
discovered that electroshock treatment caused amnesia. He set
about a programme that he called "de-patterning" which had the
effect of erasing the memory of selected patients. Further work
revealed that subjects could be transformed into a virtual
blank machine (Tabula Rasa) and then be re-programmed with a
technique which he termed "psychic driving." Such was the
bitter public outrage, once his work was revealed (as a result
of FOIA searches) that Cameron was forced to retire in disgrace.

Of interest too is Dr. John C. Lilly[18] who was asked by the
Director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to
brief the CIA, FBI, NSA and other military intelligence services
on his work using electrodes to stimulate, directly, the pleasure
and pain centers of the brain. According to Lilly he refused.
However, as revealed in his book he continued to do "useful" work
for the national security apparatus. Lilly's work took place in
1953. Another scientists, Eldon Byrd, -- who worked for Naval
Surface Weapons Office -- was commissioned in 1981 to develop
electromagnetic devices for purposes including "riot control,"
clandestine operations and hostage removal.[19]

From 1965 through to 1970, Defense Advanced Projects Research
Agency (DARPA), with up to 70-80% funding provided by the
military, set in motion operation PANDORA. This project was to
study the health and psychological effects of low intensity
microwaves with regard to the so called "Moscow signal" -- an
episode when the US embassy Moscow was bombarded by Soviet
microwaves... Pandora research included (under US Navy funding)
studies demonstrating how to: induce heart seizures, create leaks
in the blood brain barrier, and the production of auditory
hallucinations. Despite attempts to render the Pandora programme
invisible to scrutiny, FOIA filings revealed memoranda of Richard
Cesaro, Director, DARPA, which confirmed that the programme's
initial goal was to "discover whether a carefully controlled
microwave signal could control the mind." Cesaro urged that
these studies be made "for potential weapons applications."[20]

World Opinion is Not Ready for This

Following immense public outcry, Congress forbade further
research and demanded that these projects be terminated across
the board. But as Victor Marchetti, a former CIA agent later
revealed, the programmes merely became more secret and built-in a
high element of "deniability."[21] Despite the fact that many of
these projects revolved around the use of narcotics and
hallucinogens, projects ARTICHOKE, PANDORA and CHATTER clearly
demonstrated that "psychoelectronics" were a high priority.
Indeed, an anonymous informer (humorously known as "Deep Trance")
told author John Marks; that beginning in 1963 mind control
research strongly emphasized electronics.

During 1989, CNN aired a programme on electromagnetic weapons and
showed a US government document that outlined a contingency plan
to use EM weapons against "terrorists." Prior to the show a DoD
medical engineer sourced a story claiming that in the context of
conditioning, microwaves and other modalities had regularly been
used against Palestinians. During 1993 Defense News, the
prestigious US weekly announced that Russian government was
discussing with American counterparts the transfer of technical
information and equipment known as "Acoustic Psycho-correction."
The Russians claimed that this device involves "the transmission
of specific commands via static or white noise bands into the
human subconscious without upsetting other intellectual
functions." Experts said that demonstrations of this equipment
have shown "encouraging" results "after exposure of less than one
minute," and has produced "the ability to alter behavior on
willing and unwilling subjects."

The article goes on to explain that combined "software and
hardware associated with the (sic) psycho-correction programme
could be procured for as little as $80,000 (US). The Russians
went on to observe that "World opinion is not ready for dealing
appropriately with the problems coming from the possibility of
direct access to the human mind." Acoustic psycho-correction
dates back to the mid 1970's and can be used to "suppress riots,
control dissidents, demoralize or disable opposing forces and
enhance the performance of friendly special operations
teams."[22] One US concern in relation to this device, was
aired by Janet Morris of the Global Strategy Council, a
Washington based think tank established by former CIA deputy
director, Ray Cline, who noted that "Ground troops risk
exposure to bone-conducting sound that cannot be offset by
earplugs or other protective gear."

Dr. Ross Adey, in his pioneering work determined that
emotional states and behavior can be remotely influenced merely
by placing a subject in an electromagnetic field. By directing a
carrier frequency to stimulate the brain and using amplitude
modulation to shape the wave to mimic a desired EEG frequency he
was able to impose a 4.5 CPS theta rhythm on his subjects. Drs
Joseph Sharp and Allen Frey experimented with microwaves seeking
to transmit spoken words directly into the audio cortex via a
pulsed-microwave analog of the speaker's sound vibration. Indeed,
Frey's work in this field, dating back to 1960 gave rise to the
so called "Frey effect" which is now more commonly referred to as
"microwave hearing."[23] Within the Pentagon this ability is now
known as "Artificial Telepathy."[24] Adey and others have
compiled an entire library of frequencies and pulsation rates
which can effect the mind and nervous system.

During the siege of Waco, Texas, FBI agents discussed with
Russian counterparts the use of Acoustic psycho-correction on
David Koresh and the Branch Davidians. In the event it is
understood that this contingency did not proceed. However, some
unusual EM weapons were deployed at Waco. BBC World News, and
additional FBI film-footage (in the possession of this writer)
show both the Russian equipment being demonstrated, as well as
previously unseen noise generator and an unusual low frequency
strobe array in use at Waco.

Sleeping Beauty Meets Hidden Agenda

Have weapons of this nature been developed and field tested?
Judged by the number of individuals and groups coming forward
with complaints of harassment the answer, appears, to be yes.
Kim Besley, of the Greenham Common Women's Peace Camp,[25] has
compiled a fairly extensive catalogue of effects that have
resulted from low frequency signals emanating from the US
Greenham Common base, and, apparently, targeted upon the women
protesters. These include: vertigo, retinal bleeding, burnt face
(even at night), nausea, sleep disturbances, palpitations, loss
of concentration, loss of memory, disorientation, severe
headaches, temporary paralysis, faulty speech co-ordination,
irritability and a sense of panic in non-panic situations.
Identical and similar effects have been reported elsewhere and
appear to be fairly common-place amongst so called "victims."
Many of these symptoms have been associated in medical
literature with exposure to microwaves and especially through
low intensity or non-thermal exposures.[26] These have been
reviewed by Dr. Robert Becker, twice nominated for the Nobel
Prize, and specialist in EM effects. His report confirms that
the symptoms mirror those he would expect to see, had
Microwave weapons been deployed.

The Scientific American dated April 1994 carried an article
entitled "Bang! You're Alive" which briefly described some of
the known arsenal of Less-Than-Lethal weapons presently
available. These include Laser Rifles, low frequency
"infrasound" generators powerful enough to trigger nausea or
diarrhea. Steve Aftergood of the Federation of American
Scientists (FAS) noted that Non-Lethal weapons have been
linked to "mind control" devices and that three of the most
prominent advocates of non-lethality share an interest in
psychic phenomena.[27] Current Projects include SLEEPING
BEAUTY, directed towards the battlefield use of mind-altering
electromagnetic weapons. This project is headed by Jack
Verona, a highly placed Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA)

Defense Secretary, William J Perry, issued a memorandum on
Non-lethal Weapons dated 21 July 1994. This was of interest in
that it outlined a tasking priority list for use of these
technologies. Second on the list was "crowd control." Coming in
at a poor fifth was "Disable or destroy weapons or weapon
development/production processes, including suspected weapons of
mass destruction." It is therefore clear that Non-Lethality is
fundamentally seen as anti-personnel rather than anti-material.
In July 1995, Spotlight, a rightist and widely circulated US
newspaper reported that well placed DoD sources have confirmed a
classified Pentagon contract for the development of "high-power
electromagnetic generators that interfere with human brain
waves." The article cited the memorandum of understanding dated
1994 between Attorney General, Janet Reno, and Defense Secretary,
William Perry for transfer of LTL weapons to the law enforcement
sector. A budget of under $50 million has been made available for
funding associated "black" programmes. Dr. Emery Horvath, a
professor of physics at Harvard University has stated in
connection to the generator that interferes with human brain
waves that "These electronic 'skull-zappers' are designed to
invade the mind and short circuit its synapses...in the hands of
government technicians, it may be used to disorient entire
crowds, or to manipulate individuals into self-destructive acts.
It's a terrifying weapon."[28]

In a 1993 US Air Command and Staff College paper entitled
"Non-Lethal Technology and Air Power, authors Maj. Jonathan W.
Klaaren (USAF) and Maj. Ronald S. Mitchell (USAF) outlined
selected NLT weapons. These included "Acoustic"
(pulsed/attenuated high-intensity sound, infrasound (very low
frequency) and Polysound (high volume, distracting) as well as
High-power microwaves (HPM) that possessed the capability of
"deters/incapacitates people." These and other classified weapons
are being passed to domestic law enforcement agencies as shown by
the 1995 ONDCP (Office of National Drug Control Policy)
International Technology Symposium "Counter-Drug Law Enforcement:
Applied Technology for Improved Operational Effectiveness" that
outlined the "Transition of advanced military technologies to the
civil law enforcement environment." There are some observers who
fear that the burgeoning narcotics industry is an ideal "cover"
in which to "transit" Non-Lethal Technologies to domestic
political tasks. Whether this is merely a misplaced "Orwellian"
fear remains to be seen. However, organized crime is so globally
"organized" that experts now believe it is impossible to
eradicate or even effectively combat.[29]

Major Edward Dames, formerly with the Pentagon's Defence
Intelligence Agency until 1992, was a long serving member of the
highly classified operation GRILL-FLAME, a programme that focused
on some of the more bizarre possibilities of intelligence
gathering and remote interrogation. Known as "remote viewers"
GRILL-FLAME personnel possessed a marked psychic ability that was
put to use "penetrating" designated targets and gathering
important intelligence on significant figures. The programme
operated with two teams; one working out of the top secret NSA
facility at Fort George Meade in Maryland, and the other at SRI.
Results are said to have been exemplary. Following the Oliver
North debacle the Secretary of Defense officially terminated
GRILL-FLAME fearing bad publicity were the programme to become
known to the public. The leading members of the project --
including Dames -- immediately relocated to the privately owned
and newly formed Psi-Tech, operating under government contract.
In the course of his work, Dames was (and remains) close to many
the leading figures and proponents Anti-Personnel Electromagnetic
Weapons especially those that operate in the neurological field.
During NBC's "The Other Side" programme, Dames stated that "The
US Government has an electronic device which could implant
thoughts in people." He refused to comment further.[30] The
programme was broadcast during April 1995.

In an age where the threat of global warfare has diminished as a
result of the easing of tension between east and west, it can be
anticipated that some form of introspection will occur in the
developed western nations. Societies that have been
generationally and economically honed for warfare do not, on the
whole, assume "for peace" production with such vigor and
ability. Unable to so readily project the "shadow" outwards on to
another nation, the enemy without soon distills to become the
enemy within?[31] In the United States, for example, there is
a rapidly developing trend of co-operation between the military
and law enforcement agencies in LTL weaponry. Whilst it is clear
that this is driven to some extent by budgetary considerations,
there remain legitimate concerns regarding the longer term effect
on democracy.

The reality of an increasingly (and increasing number of)
impoverished lower class as a result of "swords to shears"
economics, is certain to result in growing civil unrest,
disobedience, strife, inner city turmoil and quite possibly much
worse.[32] Rather that seeking to resolve the underlying causes
of these tensions, it is feared that governments will
increasingly resort to more durable measures to quell domestic
dissent. Western industrial nations are especially prone to these
developments for a variety of reasons. As we have seen in the
years following Vietnam, dead US soldiers engaged in overseas
"adventures" (universally hailed as "peace-keeping" when the West
conducts such operations, but dubbed "criminal" or "terrorist"
when other States engage in similar activities) are no longer
politically acceptable. Paradoxically, death on the streets in a
domestic context -- as a result of growing crime -- is
politically OK. Political careers often rest on tough-anti-crime
sentiments. Despite this, history clearly demonstrates that crime
continues to spiral upwards. For example, the much publicized
capture and death of Pablo Escobar -- Colombia's most notorious
cocaine baron -- was immediately followed by an increase in the
quantity and quality of cocaine shipments to the US. A mite odd
one might conclude?

Less-Than-Lethal Anti-Personnel weapons[33] are seen in some
influential quarters as being the ideal remedy for future
domestic disturbances that clearly result from poverty and
despair.[34] The danger with this is that western democracy may
begin to fail, or suffer such severe set-backs in its
traditional democratic forms that it will become increasingly
repressive and oligarchic.[35] Armed with innovative
technological weapons that do not necessarily kill, but which
render disenfranchised segments of society physically inactive,
emotionally stupefied and incapable of meaningful thought is a
goal of those who favour a "psycho-civilized society." This is
a frightening and all too realistic scenario. Whether by
design or by default such an outcome is nothing short of a

If, like many, you doubt that what has been portrayed above can
or will happen, you are denying the facts and closing your eyes
to history. In the last analysis global planners don't see you as
a unique individual, but only as an "experience set." Worse,
perhaps, than meekly allowing this to happen, you are also paying
for it via the tax take. No wonder the faceless ones are
