Note & Op-ed | Ramola D | May 29, 2023
Posted today at the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists is an interview with an alarming title with a science journalist and writer, Sally Adee, editor at New Scientist and author of We Are Electric Inside the 200-Year Hunt for Our Body’s Bioelectric Code, and What the Future Holds, reviewing her experience with tDCS, Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, a military brain technology from DARPA revealing uses both putatively therapeutic and other. Also reviewed are a few other technologies including brain decoding or mind reading using something called the Utah Array, and xeno bots, which seem to be living beings from stem cells, therefore these latter not technologies but beings used in bioelectricity or tDCS research–rather immense subjects to further explore.
Most puzzling though is the tone and allusive way in which this major information is presented, as if presuming consent for some very dark technologies (some of which most people unlawfully targeted have been reporting for years now as profoundly invasive and abusive), some yet to be fully exposed–including, seemingly, some such as synthetic telepathy, brain stimulation to amplify learning which seems to be using neural network mapping, and other such: Q&A: How DARPA hacked a science writer’s brain and turned her into a sharpshooter | Sara Goudarzi | May 29, 2023
Like much that is being published these days and apparently over the years in certain forums, both in print and in podcasts, there is a lot of just such seemingly artfully artless presenting of neurotechnology information ongoing, it seems, when the issues, unspoken and unremarked, are huge, with massive implications for all human neuro, cognitive, individual and collective freedom.
“Hacking Brains”: Is Language Being Opened Up Now in Mainstream Space to Gain Consent by Stealth?
Most fundamentally, this article is not about a science writer turned into a sharpshooter, but about a well-published one who in 2007 voluntarily submitted to Trans Cranial Direct Current Stimulation for a story. It is about her seeking a “flow state” through what appears to be either a video game or Virtual Reality or a metaverse scenario, never exactly presented as such. Showing up for her “simulation” (or perhaps just Stimulation) in a traumatized, sleep-deprived jetlagged state, she is then subjected to a series of training exercises for “first-person shooter games” rushing through her repeat exercises with progressive success, not noticing how time flies–essentially getting to some modicum of a flow state at some speed: is this supersoldier training, is this Artificial Intelligence simulations playing out, is this Supercomputing AI and over stimulation of neurons via Syn Tel–TAMI (Thought Amplification and MIND Interface), MIND, SATAN on steroids, is this brain heterodyning or similar? Read (the whole interview/Q and A amalgam) closely and some clues emerge. Yes to all above it seems especially if you understand what trauma-based mind control is all about, what neural circuit mapping in cognitive processing is all about and how this relates to the kind of basic IP theft which brain/EEG heterodyning, cloning or harvesting essentially is. There are connections here to the harvesting of flow states from experts in every field–which actually implies neuro experimentation, generative AI and nested learning algorithms which, if you keep digging into deep learning, machine learning history will bring up links to experimentation on primates from Delgado to Neuralink, on people needing prosthetic limbs, on those held hostage in mental asylums, prisons, nursing homes–vulnerable populations needing protection from all yet inexplicably used historically in non-consensual medical research projects.
There are clues here as well to neuro influence technology, synthetic telepathy, neuro cognitive weaponry, inner voice takeover, narrative disruption protocols, frequency codes for negative thoughts and emotions being piped in, and connections with brain-on-a-chip tech, digital twinning/cloning, BCI (brain computer interface) networks and neurostimulators–a whole history of questionable research leading to these moments of revelation of unethical technology transfer or once-weaponry repurposed as beneficial tech, which numerous military and intelligence and private corporations inclusive of DARPA have been studying for years.
“They kept putting me through these training exercises and I kept failing and being really overwhelmed. Everything was happening all at once—the fake people were running at me, and I didn’t know what order to dispatch them in. It was incredibly frustrating, and I had this entire script of self-recrimination running through my head the entire time. It was just vicious. Then I started just having really negative thoughts. I was thinking this is all garbage, my whole job is garbage—just catastrophizing.
Then the tech came in and switched the current on, and it was like somebody had put noise cancelling headphones on me. I couldn’t hear any of that [negative thoughts] anymore. I did the training again and thought this is completely fine; I know exactly what I’m doing; what’s all the fuss? I was actually really enjoying it. After three minutes, the tech came in (normally, the runs were taking about 20 minutes to get through), and I had dispatched all the bad guys and was waiting the next wave, and said, “it’s done.” I was really surprised—actually, really annoyed—because I was thinking so now, I get it right for the first time and you stop it early. I said, “but I’ve only been here for a couple of minutes.” She said “no,” and I looked at the clock and was shocked to find that 20 minutes had passed. The researcher [in charge] said it was a common response that time starts to fly quite quickly.”–https://thebulletin.org/2023/05/qa-how-darpa-hacked-a-science-writers-brain-and-turned-her-into-a-sharpshooter/
Interestingly it seems it is actually sharpshooting training in the simulation she participated in, and not mass-shooter transformation as some may say the title implies, while the entire article seems to be written in a somewhat obfuscating way, the harms of even “noise cancelling headphone” sensations achieved by electrical current on a human brain lost.
“Zapping Brains into the Zone”
An article by Adee in 2012 helps further elaborate her experience only thinly presented today and the “flow state” she pursued–one well known to artists, dancers, writers, musicians, tennis players, sportsmen and sportswomen of every kind, but again, in itself another area of questionable brain research, which has been reported earlier by psychologist Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg21328501-600-zap-your-brain-into-the-zone-fast-track-to-pure-focus/
Human Rights and Lack of Neuro Privacy
Ultimately this is all about much more than what is only very slightly pointed to here–this is about grave and profound harm, issued inhumanely, with reverberating repercussions for Americans, the American military, and indeed the entire world. This isn’t written about though, here. The language in the title, while previously surfaced in mainstream space in the slightest of ways, is still startling enough to draw attention, to mislead, and to premise consent, which no-one with an ethical bone in their body would ever give if they ever knew what “neuro hacking” and “bio hacking” actually means — subjects covered incessantly by whistleblower scientists and journalists here, including at the two recent DEW/Neurotech conferences in 2021 and 2022 as well as numerous panels and podcasts here and at other sites online.
In this space what is powerfully reassuring is that there are indeed highly ethical servicemen and women in the US and other militaries worldwide who have come forward to address the human rights issues involved here, to whom we in this country indeed owe much gratitude on this Memorial Day 2023.
Significantly however, this article by an associate editor Sara Gordazi at the Bulletin points to several neurotechnologies and areas of bioelectronics which have now come to be variously applied it appears in fields of amplifying learning, in assisting with sports training, in stroke recovery, in relearning tasks when injured (subjects sometimes covered at my podcasts and articles), but 21st-and-20th-century public disclosure of which from military sources like DARPA needs further to be catalogued and highlighted for public awareness.
This linked article from 2017 in a neurophysiology journal reveals the use of tDCS in studies, not fully described, for numerous neurological conditions or named yet questionable conditions like Parkinson’s, dementia, Alzheimer’s: Evidence-based guidelines on the therapeutic use of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS).
As with other neurotechnologies described by whistleblowers and DOD scientists in lectures and journals over the past few years and presented today as therapeutic under various “emerging technologies” and community research headings, it is never clear how ethically these were developed and how ethically they are being used.
Those who have been unlawfully targeted today and for several decades now, in the US and worldwide, have long been subjected to numerous exotic technologies without consent and have long sought attention to be drawn to their absolutely incomprehensible plight, while we see at the very same time numerous technologies being introduced in our midst, in hospitals, in research settings, in criminal justice settings as therapeutic, or interventional, or deterrent, or emerging, or innovative. These must be questioned from a human rights point of view.
Especially disturbing is the tone of presumed or premised consent underlying examination, however slight, of any and all neurotechnology, both here and in much coverage online today which every intelligent observer must rise up to question. When did neurotechnology become a thing? How many of us are willing to submit to brain monitoring and brain surveillance and brain research on our own thinking processes and thoughts? These are subjects we need to keep researching and writing and speaking about–as well as directly addressing with those building them.
Also questionable is the presented narrative of tDCS being used as a therapy not merely to treat depression but to beat back “inner voices” or negative thoughts, an old one much in line with the historic linking of inner voices or “hearing voices” to so-called schizophrenia or schizoid disorders–instead of recognizing the disclosures today of synthetic telepathy, V2K, projected sounds, ultrasound invasion of the brain and other human-effect electromagnetic, bioelectronic, and neuro hacking technologies known today to specialized audiences.
Much to explore and address further, at a later date.
