Remote influencing technologies, the new terrorism of the 21st century
Lecture by Lars Drudgaard, Open Mind Conference 2012, September 20-22
The brilliant lecture of Lars Drudgaard at the Open Mind Conference 2012 in Denmark, took the audience through a breathtaking journey through the history of the development of the techniques and technologies used in what ICAACT calls “remote influencing technologies”.
In his presentation he uses images, music and video to illustrate and create an overview of an area of behavior and brain research that is often ignored, not only because of its complexity and dangers, but because of its many innocent victims, that too often have been children.
First he starts out with a brief overview of the milestones of behavioral research; then he moves on to the precursors of the infamous MKULTRA series of programs and their history, capabilities and outcomes. Later he covers how these programs progressed into the 21st century after being exposed. And last, he talks about contemporary research in the areas of Neuroscience, RFID-Implants, BCI’s, Remote Interrogation, and Behavior Modification.
"The long-term Defense implications of finding ways to turn thoughts into acts, if it can be developed, are enourmous: imagine U.S. warfighters that only need use the power of their thoughts to do things at great distances."
- Strategic Plan, Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, February 2003
Behaviorists Pavlov, B.F. Skinner and John Watson were the first to show that human behavior could be controlled and manipulated in the beginning of 1900s. And they were the first to also put a question mark behind the idea that individuals had a free will. They came to the conclusion that human behavior was a result of conditioning and reinforcement shaped by human experience. According to this school of thought, only observable behaviors should be studied. Internal states such as cognitions, emotions and moods are too subjective.
But in the 1950s – when Behaviorism was experiencing its decline in popularity, another science emerged that became fascinated with the human mind with all its subjective internal states – the science of cybernetics and remote influencing technology. It included horrible experiments on humans who lost their lives to science. José Delgado and others showed how animals and humans could be controlled by both implanted electrodes and by external magnetic fields.
According to the book by Dr. Collin Ross, The CIA-doctors: Human Rights Violations By American Psychiatrists (2011, Kindle Edition),
Just as the experiments in the 1950s had a direct correlation to the scientific brain research of that time we can assume that the same is true today. Neuroscience research has today flourished and created worldwide collaboration projects and subprojects with the aim of completely uncovering the mysteries of the human brain. Most projects are sponsored by the defense agencies (like DARPA in the USA). These aren't just about "old fashioned" mind control, but go into areas outside psychology and social sciences. One of these areas is human enhancement. As a result, the transhumanist movement's advocates have in recent years become well respected collaborators.
Here is what philosopher, historian and bioethicist Jonathan Moreno has to say about current neuro-reseach:
