Whistleblower Reveals Military Mind Control Project At Major University
Activist Post
July 28, 2013
What if the government could change people's moral beliefs or stop political dissent through remote control of people's brains?

ED Noor: Make it fun! Suddenly the idea of wearing a tin foil cap is not so bad sounding after all!
Sounds like science fiction, right? Well, a leaked document reveals that the US government, through DARPA research, is very close to accomplishing this.

Activist Post was recently contacted by an anonymous whistleblower who worked on a secret ongoing mind-control project for DARPA. The aim of the program is to remotely disrupt political dissent and extremism by employing "Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation" (TMS) in tandem with sophisticated propaganda based on this technology. TMS stimulates the temporal lobe of the brain with electromagnetic fields.

The program, conducted by The Center for Strategic Communication, is based at Arizona State University. The DARPA funding for this project can be confirmed on the ASU website here. The head of the project, Steve Corman, has worked extensively in the area of strategic communication as it applies to terrorism and "extremism" ~ or what could be called "the war of ideas."

Corman’s latest project Narrating The Exit From Afghanistan and his many presentations make it quite obvious that the mission is to shape the narrative and literally change people's minds. Lest one believe it will be contained to overseas extremists, we should keep in mind that the word extremist is increasingly used domestically. The dissenters of yesterday could easily become the terrorist sympathizers and supporters of political violence tomorrow.
This DARPA research brings about many ethical questions and dilemmas.

Mainly, this research aims to literally induce or disrupt the operation of narratives within the brain.

In other words, this research aims to stop individuals from thinking certain thoughts and make others believe things they normally would not believe.
This research has tremendous interrogation possibilities and could potentially be used to more successfully spread propaganda or stop political upheaval to an unsuspecting public.

This research is being conducted by The Center for Strategic Communication at ASU and is entitled “Toward Narrative Disruptors and Inductors: Mapping the Narrative Comprehension Network and its Persuasive Effects”  A detailed overview of the project can be found in the document below. Highlights include:
In phase 3 of the research, the research group will “selectively alter aspects of narrative structure and brain functions via Transcranial Magnetic Simulation (TMS) to induce or disrupt selected features of narrative processing.” (Page 16, emphasis added)
TMS is a very powerful tool used to impair the brain functioning of individuals. See the videos below for a brief demonstration of the effects of TMS

~ Once the research group determines which parts of the brain are associated with cognitive reasoning and narrative comprehension, they will be attempt to impair those sections in order to “create a fundamental basis for understanding how to disrupt or enhance aspects of narrative structure and/or brain functioning to minimize or maximize persuasive effects on subject proclivity to engage in political violence.” (Page 23) 
~ Once it is determined that disruption of certain portions of the brain can enhance persuasive messaging, individuals can be persuaded to do things they normally would not do and believe things they normally would not believe. This could include something as simple as telling a closely guarded secret, to believing in government propaganda, or even committing a violent act. The group writes on page 26, “once we have produced a narrative comprehension model [i.e., how individuals comprehend stories and persuasive messages], end users [aka the government] will understand how to activate known neural networks (e.g., working memory or attention) and positive behavioural outcome (e.g., nonviolent actions) nodes with strategic communication messages as a means to reduce incidences of political violence in contested populations.” The group will investigate “possibilities for literally disrupting the activity of the NCN [narrative comprehension network] through Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.” (Page 30) [Text added] 

~ The group is so confident that they will be able to induce or disrupt the operations of narratives in the brain, that they say on page 26 that the research “offers the capability to induce or disrupt the operation of narratives in the brain, and develops the capability to induce narrative validity [i.e., the believability of a particular narrative/message], transportation [i.e., the ability to be engaged by a narrative], and integration [i.e., associating a particular narrative with a larger, more culturally specific narrative] with certainty.” [Text added
The group gives the following example of this projects usefulness: “If it is the case that activation in one particular neural network enables people to connect personal narrative to master narratives [i.e., cultural narratives], by disrupting activity in that brain area, we should be able to selectively impair that specific aspect of narrative processing while holding other meaning making processes constant, effectively creating a ‘narrative disruptor.’ Not only would this be an important finding in the science of neural networks and narrative persuasion, but would also have considerably practical and strategic importance.” (Page 40) [Text added]
Essentially, the research aims to literally disrupt how people think and comprehend ideas and messages.
~ Further, and perhaps even more terrifying, on page 40, the group writes, “Mechanical disruptions of narrative processing may be, ultimately, replicated in through targeted strategic communication campaigns that approximate the narrative disruptions induced via magnetic stimulation.” 

So, after figuring out which parts of the brain are activated by particular persuasive messages and propaganda, the government can test out messages that only activate particular portions of the brain and not others, in order to persuade individuals to believe or not believe something. 

Essentially, they are attempting to modify brain functioning without TMS, and only words. One can only imagine the strategies the government could use with this technology. They could make the public believe almost anything that suits their needs. It could literally lead to mass brainwashing.
But what does this mean, practically?
It means that if this research succeeds, the government will be able to modify how one personally thinks. They could strap you in a chair, put a machine to your head, turn off parts of your brain, introduce a persuasive message, and make you believe it.

Further, through extensive research, they may be able to replicate the machine’s brain disrupting functioning simply through carefully crafted and researched persuasive messages and propaganda. They can use brain imaging to determine which portions of the brain are activated when a particular message is presented to an individual, and if the “right” portions are activated, they know the message will circumvent one’s mental reasoning and lead to almost automatic acceptance.
With enough data, the government could spread propaganda through the media that people will almost automatically believe, whether it is true or not.

In terms of interrogation possibilities, Transcranical Magnetic Stimulation can be forced upon individuals to make them believe certain things, say certain things, and perhaps admit to acts they did not actually commit (as the TMS can induce narrative validity), or commit acts they normally would not commit.

The government is literally trying to brainwash the public. This is not science fiction. Technology has made it possible to induce and disrupt cognitive functioning in individuals. In the future, your thoughts may not be your own, but ones that have been implanted into your brain through exceedingly successful and validated propaganda.

Meeting notes indicate concern about how the project will be perceived, particularly the focus on the Christian/Muslim element.

In 2002 The Economist noted that neuroscience would be the future of mind control. Well, now we're evidently here. This area of study has received $100 million in funding via Obama's ten-year BRAIN Project, as well as a $1.3 billion commitment from Europe.
The human brain is seen as the final frontier, and is being explored from every angle conceivable.
The above investments are openly discussed. The same is true for the National Nanotechnology Initiative 2011 Strategic Plan. This 60-page document lays out a projected future "to understand and control matter" for the management of every facet of human life in the areas of environment, health and safety. Twenty-five U.S. Federal agencies are participating. 

Concurrently, there is heavy military funding through agencies such as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). This raises the question of transparency when a "black budget" often justifies total secrecy in the name of national security. 

Advancements in neuroscience are coming at an exponential rate, as each day seems to headline a new breakthrough. For example, it recently has been announced that: 
~ "Neural Dust" is being researched, which could enable remote spying on the human brain. 
~ A new microchip can mimic the brain and imitate the brain's information processing in real time.
These are mainstream announcements
and can no longer be dismissed as conspiracy theory.

For now, there appears to be a lot of parsing of words within the ASU project to stress that this is about "persuasion" not "influence" which can be seen in the meeting notes. It's also repeatedly mentioned that there is not a desire to organically change the brain itself, but to focus on the story being told and how to properly disseminate information ~ propaganda, in other words. 
Finally, there is the troubling note about focusing on the Christian/Muslim narrative as exemplary of the extremism which needs to be reprogrammed.
Given what we know about the other military research into direct mind control, any benign assertions of this project at ASU must be called into question. The fact that members of this group were divided into teams red and blue to construct arguments for and against if word were to get out to "activists" and the public is additionally troubling.

If we combine all of this information with other releases about The Pentagon's work with "narrative networks," reported on by the BBC, it becomes clear that now is the time to discuss ethics, as no one in the scientific and military communities seems eager to bring possible attacks on our free will to the forefront.

Will you take the red pill or the blue pill? We would love to hear your thoughts about what has been revealed. Activist Post would also like to call on all experts in this field of research and/or other whistleblowers to come forward and bring out into the open what is being covered up. This technology could affect us all.

NOTE: An e-mail sent to the program director at ASU requesting comments on this research did not receive a response.

ED Noor: Dane Wigington has done much work on these environmental issues. At the end are posted the links to all of his work previously featured here. This latest article by Dane comes out on the same day my local newspaper ran a headline about the inexplicable decline of old trees as the old beauties begin to yield one by one to the stresses of very heavy daily geoengineering. We are into day 31 of a heat wave. The longest spell of no rain in decades. Oddly, for the past week the chem spraying has been surprisingly light compared to what it usually is.

According to what Dane Wigington claims, chem spraying effects the rays that reach the earth which results in burning the trees, basically frying them just under the surface of the bark where their sap of life runs. So now we have little spraying so that the sun can do its work? From my window I see the tops of the trees and have noticed the change in growth patterns over the years especially last spring when most new deciduous growth was stunted and washed out in colour.

By Dane Wigington
July 30th, 2013

We have known for some time that the UV levels were getting rapidly worse due to the ongoing atmospheric spraying. Anyone that is even slightly awake and aware has noticed that the sun feels incredibly intense on the skin. Most varieties of plant life are showing at least some signs of stress in most areas. In many regions, whole forests are in steep decline. And it’s getting worse by the day.

Although extreme drought and toxic rains (due in large part to the heavy metal fallout from geoengineering) are taking their toll, recent metering of UV levels in Northern California indicate that there is an element in this die off that is far worse than we had realized, an incomprehensibly high level of UV radiation.

With the assistance of a very generous and conscientious individual, purchased top-of-the-line UV metering equipment which was put in the hands of a 40-year environmental metering veteran, with 20 years government experience and 20 years as a private consultant. Our findings are far beyond shocking.

From a recent science study on excessive UV:
We are told UV-B is only a minor component of the total solar radiation; we now know this could not be further from the truth. 

Our recent metering reflects an exponential rise in UVB radiation. Due to its high energy, its potential for causing biological damage to plants, animals, and humans is exceptionally high and even small increases could lead to significant biological damage. There are numerous peer reviewed studies which verify this fact.

According to agencies like WHO, (World Heath Organization) and a long list of other recognized government sources of UV information like NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration), no more than 5% of the total UV reaching the surface of Earth should be UVB. The other 95% should be UVA.

These agencies go on to state that UVC should be ZERO.

What has our testing shown?

UVB ~ the most lethal form of UV radiation ~ has now escalated to almost 70% of the total UV reaching the surface of our planet. At least this is the case in Northern California. (This can only mean that total Ultra-Violate exposure has also escalated sharply, making overall UVB levels worse still.)

In addition, our testing has consistently shown significant levels of UVC which used to be filtered out by the ozone layer, some 100,000 feet up in our atmosphere.

Not any more.

UV is measured in spectral bandwidths. The higher the bandwidth, the more benign the UV; lower bandwidths are more lethal.

Current testing reveals that almost 70% of incoming UV radiation is currently in the UVB and UVC range. (Not 5% or less, as we are being told by all major agencies and their media mouthpieces).

This translates into nearly a 1,400% increase in UVB as a percentage of total UV. If UVA has also gone up due to the same ozone destruction which has driven up the UVB, this would indicate a likelihood that the total UVB and UVC is higher still ~ not just a difference of ratio with the same overall number.

What are the known negative effects of excessive UV exposure to plant life?


In the forests of Northern California, bark is literally being scorched from trees. On many specimens, only a thin strip of bark remains on the shaded side of the tree. Foliage is being scorched with many trees having only a fraction of their normal leaf cover. Many native species of plants are not even sprouting any more. The organisms that do still manage to grow appear miniaturized in some cases.

What are just some of the results of excessive UV exposure to plants?
Can stop sprouting of seeds
Stunts growth
Limb die off
Reduced foliage
DNA damage
Changes nutrient distribution
Effects photosynthesis
Greatly increased mortality
All aquatic life is particularly vulnerable to high UV levels.

Phytoplankton accounts for some 30% of the worlds’ intake of animal protein. Phytoplankton and the microorganisms they consume are killed by excessive UV levels. (Global plankton populations have already been reduced by 40% to 50%. Much of the die off is likely due to increased UV radiation.)

Less plankton = less carbon-dioxide absorption.

Less plankton = less oxygen production. (Atmospheric oxygen content around the globe declining rapidly)

Less plankton = less fish. Period.

Bottom line: A crashing plankton population effects the entire food chain and all life on earth.
Excess UV kills coral reefs. So do waters warmed and made acidic by CO2 fallout. (Reefs are the nurseries of many crucial aquatic species and are in sharp decline around the globe.)

Damaged immune system
DNA damage
Damages sight
Causes various forms of cancer
This is not speculation, it is fact. There is a mountain of science data that confirms the ozone decimating effect of sunlight-reflecting particulates in the upper atmosphere. As geo-engineering climate modeler Ken Caldeira warned after crunching the numbers for Dr. Edward Teller’s aerosol “sunscreen”, the resulting rapid cooling of the stratosphere causes the formation of huge ice clouds that attract and concentrate ozone-destroying chemicals.

In addition, high nitrogen oxide emissions from fleets of aerosol-spreading jet tanker aircraft – and more than 93,000 daily airline flights – directly attack Earth’s protective ozone layer.

Though many of these “science studies” do not admit geo-engineering is already going on, this fact is not hard to confirm for any that do even the slightest investigation.

Numerous references are posted below this article.

The gravity of our collective crisis cannot be overstated. 

Current UV metering makes clear we are now being exposed to dangerously high levels of UV radiation, specifically UVB and UVC.

The metering performed in Northern California, on which this statement is based, was done by a pair of identical state-of-the-art, brand-new, science-grade meters guaranteed to be scientifically calibrated to a range within 4%. As stated earlier in this article, the tech who did this metering is a 40- year veteran in environmental measurement and interpretation.

Here in Northern California, we are already seeing frighteningly visible damage to foliage, trees, and plants. The ramifications of extremely high UV levels to all life forms ~ including us ~ are grave. As the die-off of other species go, and so will we. 

We are in the 6th Great Mass Extinction
~ right here, right now!

If geo-engineering continues unabated, and the ozone layer is completely destroyed, it will be game over for us all.
No ozone layer = no life on Earth. It’s that simple.

Global geo-engineering is tearing apart the entire fabric of life on our planet. 

Geo-engineering is poisoning our air, waters, and soils. 

Geo-engineering is pushing increasingly erratic atmospheric processes resulting from human-propelled climate change past the Chaos threshold into unpredictable, self-reinforcing, cascading events. 

Geo-engineering is disrupting the jet stream and all natural weather patterns, which in turn is fuelling catastrophic climate feedback loops ~ the most dire of which are mass methane hydrate releases from the Arctic tundra and seafloor. 

Geo-engineering is destroying the stratospheric solar radiation shielding, which protects all life on Earth.


Do your own honest investigation and find out.

Global awareness of these lethal programs is rising quickly, but not fast enough. It’s up to all of us to help shine the light on this life-or-death issue.

Every day counts.

From Harvard Magazine
Harvard scientist
The Science paper notes that loss of ice in the Artic threatens to release significant amounts of carbon dioxide and methane from the soils of Siberia and Northern Alaska, potentially accelerating climate change. The researchers also note that an increasingly cited remedy for climate change—geo-engineering the climate by launching sulfate particles directly into the atmosphere in order to reflect sunlight away from Earth—would accelerate the process of ozone loss by increasing the reactive surface area for the conversion of chlorine to free radical form, as was observed after the eruption of Mount Pinatubo in 1991.

From EPA
UVB: a band of ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths from 280-320 nanometers produced by the Sun
UVB is a kind of ultraviolet light from the sun (and sun lamps) that has several harmful effects.
UVB is particularly effective at damaging DNA. It is a cause of melanoma and other types of skin cancer. It has also been linked to damage to some materials, crops, and marine organisms.
The ozone layer protects the Earth against most UVB coming from the sun. It is always important to protect oneself against UVB, even in the absence of ozone depletion, by wearing hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. However, these precautions will become more important as ozone depletion worsens. NASA provides more information on their web site
UVC: a band of ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths shorter than 280 nanometers
UVC is extremely dangerous, but it is completely absorbed by ozone and normal oxygen (O2). NASA provides more information on their web site

A Geo-engineering conference was held in Canberra this week see here. ‘Geo-engineering’ is taking radical steps to dramatically and rapidly cool the planet. One of the ideas being discussed at the conference is to fire sulfa particles into the atmosphere, one professor has spoken out about this:
Professor David Karoly, of the University of Melbourne’s School of Earth Sciences, says another ‘pie in the sky’ solution is to shoot sulphur particles in the atmosphere to shield the earth from the sun.
He says that would destroy the ozone layer.

“Ozone depletion would cause more UV radiation which would cause skin cancers ~ killing people,” he said.

“We know the mechanism for this, because it’s the process that affects the Antarctic ozone hole.”

Mr. Apolcalypse by hadescryushiu

Les Visible
Smoking Mirrors
July 29, 2013

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Less and less occasionally and more and more frequently, seriously, seriously outrageous news items are floating to the surface. Anyone who doubts the actions and presence of Mr. Apocalypse, is living in a dream world. 

Dream worlds are fine for so long as they last, however, they are dream worlds and that should tell you something. It would tell you something, if you were not enmeshed in a dream world (I’m not talking to the regular reader. I'm talking to the people who don't come here, which, no doubt, certifies me as a nut-job, grin).

We've talked for ages here about international, organized pedophile rings. These are recreational and devotional extensions of the Satanism that generates them. These pedophile rings go all the way to the top of the food chain. There is an enormous network of skells and assorted lowlifes, who have acted with impunity for decades.

Mr. Apocalypse is here now and there is no more impunity. Word has come down, from wherever the words originated, that those formerly immune are no longer immune. What we are told about those involved, is merely the tip of the iceberg.

The files and information that Snowden has are much more revealing and incriminating that what we are being led to believe. It is to be presumed that Russia now has these files. 

Mr Apocalypse is dancing on the meringue atop the Doomsday Cake. 

Mr. Apocalypse is lifting skirts with his walking stick. These are metaphorical skirts that have hidden the criminally private parts of the plots of monsters. 

Mr Apocalypse started out slow; a revelation here, a revelation there but ~ that's not all he does. He activates within the minds of the corrupt and compromised, from where he has been watching and waiting, for some long while, waiting for the time that is now, to come around and ~it has. It has.

So, Mr. Apocalypse has come alive, activated in the minds of those he has targeted, to motivate into crazy, over the top, reckless behaviour. Inside their minds, it all seems rational, circumspect, measured. They think they are balanced and aware. To those of us watching, they are loons, howling at a moon that only they can see.

Mr Apocalypse is cranking up the volume, inside the heads of the certifiable. Nobody sane behaves the way they do. Their heads are swollen up like zeppelins. Their egos are bouncing off the roof of the sky. 

They are high on themselves. They're self interest junkies. Some of them got billions of dollars. They want more. 

The degree to which the public is being pushed around, is beyond ridiculous. Is this not madness? Is this not madness? The writing is on the wall. The arrogance and hubris are no longer measureable. These are the same clowns that demanded bailouts for their mismanaged banking system, which was brought to the eve of destruction, by the relentless practice of their unrestrained and uncontrollable greed. 

Those whom the gods would destroy they first drive mad”. That is what is known as non negotiable truth.

Things are happening in these times that have not happened before and they are happening in places where you least expect them. Conversations as strong as Turkish coffee, are taking place in the rooms, where powerful and self important people gather. For them to make a collective statement like this, means that a whole lot of what we are not hearing is getting said, if that makes any sense. It makes perfect sense to me. 

What I am trying to say is that a new and undefinable wind, is blowing through the crypts and sarcophagi, of the long dead and recently departed, who are probably still unaware that they are dead; this ties right in with their being unaware that they were alive when that was operational so, it all works out from cradle to grave, without some being able to tell the difference between them.

You might well ask yourself, those of you with a conscience and faith in a supreme being; you might ask yourself,
“How is it that these people can commit such horrendous crimes and not be affected or... concerned about judgment and payback”?
That is easy to answer. The pending consequences and all of that cosmic retribution syndrome? They laugh at that, just as the archetype waiting for them, at the end of the line, laughs at them in a sort of mirror reflex way .The truth is hidden from them, ironically, very ironically ~ wait for it ~ 'for the purpose of demonstration'; bonus points for me if you laughed when you read that.

'We few, we happy few', members of that small consortium, the human race, which, in a larger sense was lost, not by a nose but by several lengths, we few are apprised of what is actually taking place and we watch with wonder and awe. We are convinced of our inland path and rather miles to the left of 'bemused' about the low jinks of the high rollers.

Why is steam escaping from Bwak! Howdy Doody Obama's head, when Edward Snowden is mentioned to him? 

Why did they go so far as to ground the president of Bolivia's plane? 

Why is Obama, behind the scenes, working contrary to the ambitions of Israel, though no mention of this is made in the media? 

Why is there a mounting, international reaction going on, where Israel is concerned? 

It's all Mr. Apocalypse, folks. 

The hard thing for most people to get their heads around,

is that a good portion of existence is scripted

and the less aware you are,the more scripted it is.
Whenever Evil launches a serious threat against humanity and goes all the way to becoming standard operating procedure, as it is in these times, it looks big. It looks powerful. It can seem overwhelming and something none of us have the power or capacity to do anything about. 

This is all appearances and appearances lie.
Appearances are fundamentally a lie and that is all for a very good reason and it is why people get taken in ~ because they buy into what appearances tell them and then they are rendered into the bondage of their false identification with the unreal.
It's been going on for centuries and many of the elements that make us human are engaged in a conspiracy, against the life-form they are components of. These components are, some of them are; 'vanity', 'ego', 'pride' ~ well, you should know the litany by now and if you don't know the litany, it is because these and other fellow travelers have copped you head and now lie concealed, in the woodwork of personal delusion. 

Some of these people are very smart and... oh so clever. Some of them went to Harvard or Wharton. Some of them are lawyers; doctors, businessmen, scientists, politicians, religious cross dressers, 500 watt entertainers. They run the gamut of the professions. 
You can't tell them anything.
They already know everything.
They are remarkably stupid, for being so smart and clever.
They can explain themselves to you in detail.
They can play complicated games with numbers and move resources around the world, for their personal profit.
They can make war for no other reason than personal profit and get away with it.
The bogus rationalizations and fraudulent excuses, given for their behaviour, are lapped up by the masses who are not so clever by half as they are.
The logic in the shallow brains pans of the masses, computes to exactly what their overlords tell them the sum should be; so many million of this or that, for so many years and then they change it to a lesser or greater amount but it still adds up to the same amount that it was before, they have no problem with that.
If they are told there are weapons of mass destruction and there are no weapons of mass destruction, they still believe there were weapons of mass destruction .'..and neither the truth nor irrefutable facts will alter what they see.
If someone tells them Saddam Hussein was behind the 9/11 attacks and half of the population believes this; the same population that cannot find half of the countries in the world on a map and cannot identify half of the members at the top of their government, well, that is of no consequence, as long as it doesn't come between them and their (sadder) Bud no Weiser beers and racks of pork ribs; the taste of which is indistinguishable to what their own would taste like.

Many of us are mystified, as to how the public can be as dreadfully ignorant ~ as it appears that they are. If you really want to measure the degree of collective stupidity, then you should watch several of these videos. These videos tell the sad tale of human awareness and learning in this day and age. 

In some cases, those being queried are in high school, so they are no great distance from the information they are being questioned on. This information should be fresh in their minds. The proper reaction on all of our parts, in respect of what is revealed here, is properly, shock and awe. “Yes”, we tell ourselves, “I knew they were not all that bright but... I had no idea they were that dumb. It doesn't seem possible. It just doesn't seem possible”.

It appears there is a vast difference between some of us and the rest of us. It seems to me that those of us, so engaged in the pursuit of ever greater awareness, should commit ourselves to a greater intensity with every new day. 

There is nothing back the way we came and there is nothing to be found or learned in the appetites and pursuits of the masses; lest it is your intent to share their fate.'
