Timeline for CIA’s interest in the paranormal and human consciousness.
Dr. Cornelius Rhoads – under the auspices of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Investigations – infects human subjects with cancer cells. He later goes on to establish the U.S. Army Biological Warfare facilities in Maryland, Utah, and Panama, and is named to the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission. While there, he begins a series of radiation exposure experiments on American soldiers and civilian hospital patients.
The Tuskegee Syphilis Study begins. 200 black men diagnosed with syphilis are never told of their illness, are denied treatment, and instead are used as human guinea pigs in order to follow the progression and symptoms of the disease. They all subsequently die from syphilis. Their families were never told that they could have been treated.
A Humanist Manifesto is published with 34 prominent signatories at the time.
(A) “A method for Remote Control of Electrical Stimulation of the Nervous System”, a monograph by Drs. E.L. Chaffee and R.U. Light.
(B) Experiments in Distant Influence, a book by Soviet Professor Leonid L. Vasiliev. He also wrote the article “Critical Evaluation of the Hypnogenic Method” concerning the work of Dr. I. F. Tomashevsky on experiments in remote control of the brain.
The Pellagra Incident. After millions of individuals die from Pellagra over a span of 2 decades, the U.S. Public Health Service finally acts to stem the disease. The director of the agency admits it had known for at least 20 years that Pellagra is caused by a niacin deficiency, but failed to act since most of the deaths occurred within poverty-stricken black populations.
400 prisoners in Chicago are infected with malaria in order to study the effects of new and experimental drugs to combat the disease. Nazi doctors later on trial at Nuremberg cite this American study to defend their own actions during the Holocaust.
Chemical Warfare Services begins mustard gas experiments on approximately 4,000 servicemen. The experiments continue until 1945 and made use of Seventh Day Adventists who chose to become human guinea pigs rather than serve on active duty.
In response to Japan’s full-scale germ warfare program, the U.S. begins research on biological weapons at Fort Detrick, MD.
U.S. Navy uses human subjects to test gas masks and clothing. Individuals were locked in a gas chamber and exposed to mustard gas and lewisite.
(A) After World War II, the Allies discovered the Japanese had been developing a “death ray” utilizing very short radio waves focused into a high power beam. Tests were done on animals. The Japanese denied ever testing it on humans. (From the Strategic Bombing Survey, Imperial War Museum, London. Cited with photocopies in “Japanese Death Ray”, by Peter Lewis, Resonance#11, pp 5-9)
(B) Project Paperclip is initiated. The U.S. State Department, Army intelligence, and the CIA recruit Nazi scientists and offer them immunity and secret identities in exchange for work on top-secret government projects in the United States.
(C) “Program F” is implemented by the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). This is the most extensive U.S. study of the health effects of fluoride, which was the key chemical component in atomic bomb production. One of the most toxic chemicals known to man, fluoride causes marked adverse effects to the central nervous system. But much of the information is squelched in the name of “national security” because of fear that lawsuits would undermine full-scale production of atomic bombs.
Patients in VA hospitals are used as guinea pigs for medical experiments. In order to allay suspicions, the order is given to change the word “experiments” to “investigations” or “observations” whenever reporting a medical study performed in one of the Nation’s veteran’s hospitals.
(A) Colonel E.E. Kirkpatrick of the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission issues a secret document (Document 07075001, January 8, 1947) stating that the agency will begin administering intravenous doses of radioactive substances to human subjects.
(B) The CIA begins its study of LSD as a potential weapon for use by American intelligence. Human subjects (both civilian and military) are used with-and-without their knowledge.
(A) The Department of Defense begins plans to detonate nuclear weapons in desert areas and monitor downwind residents for medical problems and mortality rates.
(B) In an experiment to determine how susceptible an American city would be to biological attack, the U.S. Navy sprays a cloud of bacteria from ships over San Francisco. Monitoring devices are situated throughout the city in order to test the extent of infection. Many residents become ill with pneumonia-like symptoms.
(C) The French conducted research on infrasonic weapons (from “The Road From Armageddon”, by Peter Lewis, Resonance#13, pp 9-14).
(D) The newly-formed CIA initiated studies in mind-control programs in 1950 with Project Bluebird (rechristened “Artichoke”) in 1951. To establish a ‘ cover story’ for this research, the CIA funded a propaganda effort designed to convince the World that the Communist Bloc had devised insidious new methods of re-shaping the human will. The CIA’s own efforts could therefore – if exposed – be explained as an attempt to “catch up” with Soviet and Chinese work.
The primary promoter of this ‘line’ was one Edward Hunter, a CIA contract employee operating undercover as a journalist and – later – a prominent member of the John Birch society.
Hunter offered ‘brainwashing’ as the explanation for the numerous confessions signed by American prisoners of war during the Korean War and (generally) UN-recanted upon the prisoners’ repatriation. These confessions alleged that the United States used germ warfare in the Korean conflict – a claim which the American public of the time found impossible to accept.
Many years later, however, investigative reporters discovered that Japan’s germ warfare specialists (who had wreaked incalculable terror on the conquered Chinese during WWII) had been mustered into the American national security apparatus. And the knowledge gleaned from Japan’s horrifying germ warfare experiments probably WAS used in Korea just as the ‘ brainwashed’ soldiers had indicated.
Thus, we now know that the entire brainwashing scare of the 1950s constituted a CIA hoax perpetrated upon the American public.
CIA deputy director Richard Helms admitted as much when in 1963, he told the Warren Commission that “Soviet mind-control research consistently lagged years behind American efforts.”
(A) Alfred Hubbard first tries LSD. An OSS officer in WWII, Hubbard first took LSD in 1951 and proceeded to “turn on” several individuals prominent in LSD research including Dr. Humphrey Osmond, Myron Stolaroff , and Aldous Huxley, earning him the title of “the Johnny Appleseed of LSD” (Lee, Martin and Schlain, Bruce, Acid Dreams, Grove Press, 1985, pg 44).
Circa 1951, Hubbard later did undercover work for several agencies including the FDA and FBI. He reportedly tried (and failed) to “turn on” J. Edgar Hoover. He introduced LSD to many high-ranking intelligence officers. In the early 1950s, he refused an offer to join the CIA (Lee and Schlain, pg 52). In all, it is estimated that Hubbard introduced LSD to over 6,000 individuals. He worked until 1965 at the International Foundation for Advanced Study (mis-identified here, I think, as the International Federation for Advanced Studies) (Fahey, Todd Brendan, The Original Captain Trips”, High Times, November 1991).
Fahey describes Hubbard’s work at SRI differently, placing him with the Alternative Futures Project which sought to “turn on” the World’s political and business leaders. He left SRI in 1974 and died on August 31, 1982 (Fahey).
(B) The Department of Defense begins open air tests using disease-producing bacteria and viruses. Tests last through 1969 and there is concern that people in the surrounding areas have been exposed.
(A) As a child in 1952, Jack Sarfatti claims to have received phone calls from the mechanical voice of a conscious computer aboard a spaceship, recruiting him along with 400 others for some special project. These calls have similarities to the mechanical voice which talked to Andrijah Puharich via his tape recorder. Sarfatti was later associated with Puharich. Puharich first contacts “The Nine” – a group of channeled being via a medium.
(B) During the CIA’s MK-ULTRA mind-control program, John Lilly briefed the intelligence community on his work to map out the brains of animals using implanted electrodes. He abandoned this line of work because he felt it was unethical.
John Lilly studied the effects of sensory deprivation tanks and also briefed the intelligence community with his progress. Lilly refused to let any of his work be classified and ended up leaving the National Institute of Health when he found that he could not work without the interference of the Government.
(C) Project Moonstruck/CIA:
Electronic implants in brain and teeth
Targeting: Long range
Implanted during surgery or surreptitiously during abduction
Frequency range: HF – ELF transceiver implants
Purpose: Tracking, mind & behavior control, conditioning, programming, covert operations
Functional Basis: Electronic Stimulation of the Brain ( E.S.B.)
(A) John C. Lilly – when asked by the director of the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) to brief the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), National Security Agency (NSA), and the various military intelligence services on his work using electrodes to stimulate directly the pleasure and pain centers in the brain – refused.
“Dr. Antione Redmond – using our techniques in Paris – has demonstrated that this method of stimulation on the brain can be applied to the human without help of the neurosurgeon … This means that anybody with the proper apparatus can carry this out covertly with no external signs that electrodes have been used in that person. I feel that if this technique got into the hands of a secret agency, they would have total control over a human being and be able to change his beliefs extremely quickly, leaving little evidence of what they had done.”
(from “Mind Control and the American Government”, by Martin Cannon in Lobster#23, pp 2-10. Cannon quotes Lilly from his book The Scientist, Berkeley, Ronin publishers, 1988, also Bantam Books 1981. Research by Peter Lewis.)
[note: After a statement like that of Dr. Lilly’s, how long do you think it would take the agencies, FBI, CIA, NSA, etc. to contact Dr. Redmond in Paris?]
(B) Project MK-ULTRA/ CIA:
Drugs, electronics and electroshock
Targeting: Short range
Frequencies: VHF HF UHF modulated at ELF
Transmission and Reception: Local production
Purpose: Programming behavior, creation of “cyborg” mentalities
Effects: narcoleptic trance, programming by suggestion
Pseudonym: Project Artichoke
Functional Basis: Electronic Dissolution of Memory, E.D.O.M. (Disinfo???)
When the CIA’s mind-control program was transferred from the Office of Security to the Technical Services Staff (TSS) in 1953, the name changed again to MK-ULTRA.
Later still, in 1962, mind-control research was transferred to the Office of Research and Development; project cryptonyms remain unrevealed. What was studied? Everything including hypnosis, conditioning, sensory deprivation, drugs, religious cults, microwaves, psychosurgery, brain implants, and even ESP. When MK-ULTRA “leaked” to the public during the great CIA investigations of the 1970s, public attention focused most heavily on drug experimentation and the work with ESP.
Mystery still shrouds another area of study – the area which seems to have most interested ORD: psychoelectronics
(C) Martin Cannon, The Controllers: A New Hypothesis of Alien Abduction:
“The MK-ULTRA program was a covert behavior modification program run by the CIA in the early 1950s with the purpose of finding ways to make men more suggestible and involving the use of pain, drugs, and hypnosis on unsuspecting human guinea pigs.
(D) The first person to publicly expose the CIA’s use of “pain-drug-hypnosis” was L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology who wrote in his 1951 book Science of Survival that it had become so extensively employed in espionage work that it was long past the time that people should have become alarmed about it.
“Mr. Hubbard’s statement was found to be true in the 1970s when the CIA’s program became public knowledge after the Freedom of Information Act enabled investigators to document the agency’s inhumane and grotesque experiments on human subjects.
The ensuing outcry over the use of mind-bending drugs – which combined with electric shock caused the deaths or maiming of untold numbers of people – drew comparisons between the CIA and the infamous Nazi doctors and led to Congressional hearings into the intelligence agency.” – firstname.lastname@example.org (probably from the Scientology Guardians Organization).
(E) U.S. military releases clouds of zinc cadmium sulfide gas over Winnipeg, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Fort Wayne, the Monocacy River Valley in Maryland, and Leesburg, Virginia. Their intent is to determine how efficiently they could disperse chemical agents.
(F) Joint Army-Navy-CIA experiments are conducted in which tens-of-thousands of people in New York and San Francisco are exposed to the airborne germs Serratia marcescens and Bacillus glogigii.
(A) (circa) Dr Louis West, friends with Aldous Huxley. It was Huxley who suggested that West combine LSD and hypnosis in his experiments (Lee, Martin, and Schlain, Bruce, Acid Dreams, Grove Press, 1985, pg 48). West was an Air Force Major, chairman of the Psychiatry Department of UCLA, director of the Neuro-Psychiatric Institute, and an expert in hypnosis.
West was a veteran of the CIA’s MK-ULTRA mind-control program and worked on interrogation techniques using hypnosis and LSD. West once killed an elephant by grossly overestimating a dose of LSD (elsewhere, I have heard that the tranquilizers required to calm the animal caused its death). West also studied the returning American POWs from Korea for the effects of brainwashing (Scheflin, Alan and Opton, Edward Jr., The Mind Manipulators, Paddington Press Ltd, 1978, pg 149-50).
(B) Morris K. Jessup published The Case For the UFO.
(C) The CIA – in an experiment to test its ability to infect human populations with biological agents – releases a bacteria withdrawn from the Army’s biological warfare arsenal over Tampa Bay, Fl.
(D) Army Chemical Corps continues LSD research, studying its potential use as a chemical incapacitating agent. More than 1,000 Americans participate in the tests, which continued until 1958.
U.S. military releases mosquitoes infected with Yellow Fever over Savannah, GA and Avon Park, FL. Following each test, Army agents posing as public health officials test victims for effects.
It has now been documented that millions of doses of LSD were produced and disseminated under the aegis of the CIA’s Operation MK-ULTRA. LSD became the drug of choice within the agency itself, and was passed out freely to friends of the family including a substantial number of OSS veterans.
For instance, it was OSS Research and Analysis Branch veteran Gregory Bateson who “turned on” the Beat poet Allen Ginsberg to a U.S. Navy LSD experiment in Palo Alto, California. Not only Ginsberg but also novelist Ken Kesey and the original members of the Grateful Dead rock group opened the doors of perception courtesy of the Navy.
The guru of the ‘psychedelic revolution’ – Timothy Leary – first heard about hallucinogens in 1957 from Life magazine (whose publisher Henry Luce was often given Government acid like many other opinion shapers), and began his career as a CIA contract employee.
At a 1977 “reunion” of acid pioneers, Leary openly admitted, “everything I am, I owe to the foresight of the CIA.” [Michael J. Minnicino, “The New Dark Age, The Frankfurt School, and ‘Political Correctness'”, Fidelio, v1 #1]
(A) Project Argus
Between August and September 1958, the US Navy exploded 3 fission-type nuclear bombs 480 km above the South Atlantic Ocean in the part of the lower Van Allen Belt closest to the Earth’s surface. In addition, 2 hydrogen bombs were detonated 160 km over Johnston Island in the Pacific.
The military called this “the biggest scientific experiment ever undertaken”. It was designed by the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission, under the code name ‘Project Argus’. The purpose appears to be to assess the impact of high-altitude nuclear explosions on radio transmission and radar operations because of the electromagnetic pulse (EMP), and to increase understanding of the geomagnetic field and the behavior of the charged particles in it.
This gigantic experiment created new (inner) magnetic radiation belts encompassing almost the whole Earth and injected sufficient electrons and other energetic particles into the ionosphere to cause worldwide effects. The electrons traveled bac- and-forth along magnetic force lines, causing an artificial “aurora” when striking the atmosphere near the North Pole.
(B) The U.S. Military planned to create a “telecommunications shield” in the ionosphere, reported in 13-20 August 1961, Keesings Historisch Archief (K.H.A.). This shield would be created “in the ionosphere at 3,000 km height by bringing into orbit 350,000 million copper needles, each 2-4 cm long [total weight 16 kg], forming a belt 10 km thick and 40 km wide, the needles spaced about 100 m apart.” This was designed to replace the ionosphere “because telecommunications are impaired by magnetic storms and solar flares.”
The U.S. planned to add to the number of copper needles if the experiment proved to be successful. This plan was strongly opposed by the Intentional Union of Astronomers.
(C) Project Orion/ USAF:
Drugs, hypnosis, and ESB
Targeting: Short range, in person
Frequencies: ELF Modulation
Transmission and Reception: Radar, microwaves, modulated at ELF frequencies
Purpose: Top-security personnel debriefing, programming, insure security and loyalty
[StealthSkater note: Bob Lazar said that he was ordered to take drugs that smelled like “pine” as part of his clearance to the S4 projects. See http://www.stealthskater.com/UFO.htm#Lazar]
(D) While Lilly implies that he left the NIH because of unethical government interference, his Communications Research Institute (founded in the 1958 to study dolphins) was partially funded by the Air Force, NASA, NIHM, the National Science Foundation, and the Navy. He was assisted in this work by Gregory Bateson.
While experimenting with sensory deprivation and LSD and ketamine, Lilly came to believe that he was in psychic contact with the aliens of what he called the “Earth Coincidence Control Office”. The aliens were guiding events in Lilly’s life to lead him to work with dolphins, which were psychic conduits between aliens and humans. The aliens are acting for the survival of organic lifeforms against artificial intelligences called “solid-state lifeforms”.
(E) LSD is tested on 95 volunteers at the Army’s Chemical Warfare Laboratories for its effect on intelligence.
Huxley speeches in London on “Latent Human Potential”. COINTELPRO is kicked off and the games begin.
(A) MK-DELTA. CIA:
Fine-tuned electromagnetic subliminal programming
Targeting: Long Range
Frequencies: VHF HF UHF Modulated at ELF
Transmission and Reception: Television antennae, radio antennae, power lines, mattress spring coils, modulation on 60-Hz wiring.
Purpose: programming behavior and attitudes in general population
Effects: fatigue, mood swings, behavior dysfunction, and social criminality
Pseudonym: “Deep Sleep”, R.H.I.C.
(B) Hal Puthoff – according to author Jim Schnabel (and confirmed by Dr. Puthoff) – served at the NSA in the early 1960s during his tour with the Navy (not the Army as McRae reported) and later stayed on as a civillian. Joined SRI in 1971 as a specialist in laser physics. Served as an officer in the Navy from 1960-63 at Ft. Meade.
(C) Headlines read,
“Khrushchev Says Soviets Will Cut Forces a Third; Sees ‘Fantastic Weapon’ “. (From article of same title, by Max Frankel, New York Times, Jan. 15, 1960, p.1 as cited in “Tesla’s Electromagnetics and Its Soviet Weaponization”, paper by T.E. Bearden.)
(D) The International Foundation for Advanced Study (IFAS) is established. Founded by Myron Stolaroff and Paul Kurtz and located in Menlo Park, California. Studied the effects of LSD and mescaline from 1961 to 1965. (Anderson, Walter Truett, The Upstart Spring, Addison-Wesley Publishing, 1983) The foundation also offered LSD therapy for $500 a session. In late 1961, the foundation released The Psychedelic Experience: A New Concept in Psychotherapy. (Stevens, Jay, Storming Heaven, Atlantic Monthly Press, 1987, pg 177-9)
Also involved with the IFAS were Alfred Hubbard, Vice President Willis Harman, Charles Savage, Robert Mogar, James Fadiman, and Ethel Savage; with Hubbard reportedly supplying the drugs (then legal for research).
(E) The Army Assistant Chief-of-Staff for Intelligence (ACSI) authorizes field testing of LSD in Europe and the Far East. Testing of the European population is code named Project “Third Chance”; testing of the Asian population is code named Project “Derby Hat”.
(A) The Esalen Institute was founded in 1964 by Mike Murphy and Dick Price out of Murphy’s family resort. Murphy and Price had been running seminars at the resort beginning in 1962 with speakers gathered through an expanding network of contacts, beginning with Alan Watts, Aldous Huxley, Gregory Bateson, Gerald Heard, and others. [see Anderson, Walter Truett, The Upstart Spring, Addison-Wesley Publishing, 1983 for an expansive history of Esalen]
While an engineering professor at Stanford University, Harman led a 1962 conference on human potentiality at the Esalen Institute called “The Expanding Vision”. Harman went on later to head IONS with Astronaut Edgar Mitchell.
(B) Project Starfish
On July 9, 1962, the US began a further series of experiments with the ionosphere. From their description:
“one kiloton device at a height of 60 km, and one megaton and one multi-megaton at several hundred kilometers height” (K.H.A., 29 June 1962). These tests seriously disturbed the lower Van Allen Belt, substantially altering its shape and intensity.
“In this experiment, the inner Van Allen Belt will be practically destroyed for a period of time. Particles from the Belt will be transported to the atmosphere. It is anticipated that the Earth’s magnetic field will be disturbed over long distances for several hours, preventing radio communication. The explosion in the inner radiation belt will create an artificial dome of polar light that will be visible from Los Angeles” (K.H.A. May 11, 1962).
“A Fijian Sailor – present at this nuclear explosion – told me that “the whole sky was on fire” and he thought it would be the End of the World. This was the experiment which called forth the strong protest of the Queen’s Astronomer, Sir Martin Ryle in the UK.
“The ionosphere [according to the under-standing at that time] – that part of the atmosphere between 65 and 80 km and 280-320 km height – will be disrupted by mechanical forces caused by the pressure wave following the explosion. At the same time, large quantities of ionizing radiation will be released, further ionizing the gaseous components of the atmosphere at this height. This ionization effect is strengthened by the radiation from the fission products…
“The lower Van Allen Belt, consisting of charged particles that move along the geomagnetic field lines… will similarly be disrupted. As a result of the explosion, this field will be locally destroyed while countless new electrons will be introduced into the lower belt” (K.H.A. 11 May 1962).
“On July 19… NASA announced that as a consequence of the high altitude nuclear test of July 9, a new radiation belt had been formed, stretching from a height of about 400 km to 1600 km; it can be seen as a temporary extension of the lower Van Allen Belt” (K.H.A. August 5,1962).
As explained in the Encyclopedia Britannica:
“… Starfish made a much wider belt [than Project Argus] that extends from low altitude out past L=3 [i.e. three Earth radiuses or about 13,000 km above the surface of the Earth].”
(B) Later in 1962, the USSR undertook similar planetary experiments, creating 3 new radiation belts between 7,000 and 13,000 km above the Earth.
According to the Encyclopedia, the electron fluxes in the lower Van Allen Belt have changed markedly since the 1962 high-altitude nuclear explosions by the US and USSR – never returning to their former state.
According to American scientists, it could take many hundreds of years for the Van Allen Belts to destabilize at their normal levels. (Research done by: Nigel Harle, Borderland Archives, Cortenbachstraat 32, 6136 C.H. Sittard, Netherlands.)
Hal Puthoff worked for 8 years in the Microwave Laboratory at Stanford University till 1971
(A) “A project in the U.S. called Project Pandora … was undertaken in which chimpanzees were exposed to microwave radiation.
The man who was in charge of this project said,
“the potential for exerting a degree of control on human behavior by low level microwave radiation seems to exist” and he urged that the effects of microwaves be studied for “possible weapons applications”.
(From “Electromagnetic Pollution: A Little Known Health Hazard. A new means of control?” by Kim Besley, Great Britain, p 14. Research from Woody Blue.)
In 1965, Koslov – then a physicist at the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) – suggested to Charles Weiss (head of security at the State Department) that a “a sober and systematic program of research” look into the “Moscow Signal”, which was caused by microwave radiation being beamed into the Moscow American Embassy.
This program eventually evolved into Project Pandora, America’s first research program into the possible offensive, anti-personnel use of non-ionizing microwave radiation. (Steneck, Nicholas H., The Microwave Debate, The MIT Press, 1984, pg 94-5)
(B) A “Death Ray” weapon was developed by McFarlane Corporation. Described as a modulated electron gun X-ray nuclear booster, it could be adapted to communications, remote control and guidance systems, EM radiation telemetry, and death ray.
McFarlane claimed NASA stole the patent in 1965. Reported hearings before the House Subcommittee on Department of Defense Appropriations, chaired by Rep. George Mahon (Dem. – Texas). (From “Hearing Voices” by Alex Constantine, Hustler, Jan. 1994, pp 102-104, 113, 120, 134. Research by Harlan Girard.)
(C) The CIA and Department of Defense begin Project MK-SEARCH – a program to develop a capability to manipulate human behavior through the use of mind-altering drugs.
(D) Prisoners at the Holmesburg State Prison in Philadelphia are subjected to dioxin – the highly toxic chemical component of Agent Orange used in Viet Nam. The men are later studied for development of cancer which indicates that Agent Orange had been a suspected carcinogen all along.
(A) CIA initiates Project MK-OFTEN – a program to test the toxicological effects of certain drugs on humans and animals.
(B) U.S. Army dispenses Bacillus subtilis variant niger throughout the New York City subway system. More than a million civilians are exposed when Army scientists drop lightbulbs filled with the bacteria onto ventilation grates.
(C) Cleve Backster is a polygraph specialist who helped develop interrogation techniques for the CIA. As of 1986, he ran a polygraph instruction school and the Backster Research Foundaion in San Diego. In February 1966, Backster recorded what he believes to be emotional reactions in plants with a polygraph machine. Called the “Backster Effect”, the validity of this phenomena is still debated.
CIA and Department of Defense implement Project MK-NAOMI – successor to MK-ULTRA and designed to maintain, stockpile, and test biological and chemical weapons.
(A) Eldon Byrd Published a paper on the telemetry of brain waves in the “Proceedings” of the International Telemetering Conference, 1972. Byrd was a physical scientist at the Naval Surface Weapons Center, White Oaks Laboratory, Silver Springs, Maryland (1968- unknown, at least 1981) Byrd describes his work with Naval Surface Weapons as “predicting what war will be like in the future.”
(B) Dr. Gordon J. F. MacDonald – science advisor to President Lyndon Johnson – wrote, “Perturbation of the environment can produce changes in behavioral patterns.” He was referring to low-frequency EM waves in the ionosphere affecting human brain wave patterns. (From his book, Unless Peace Comes, a Scientific Forecast of New Weapons, cited in “New World Order ELF Psychotronic Tyranny”, a paper by C. B. Baker.)
(C) SPS: Solar Power Satellite Project
In 1968, the U.S. military proposed Solar Powered Satellites in geostationary orbit some 40,000 km above the Earth, which would intercept solar radiation using solar cells on satellites and transmit it via a microwave beam to receiving antennas (called rectennas) on Earth.
The U.S. Congress mandated the Department of Energy and NASA to prepare an Environmental Impact Assessment on this project, to be completed by June 1980 and costing $25 million. This project was designed to construct 60 Solar Powered Satellites over a 30-year period at a cost between $500 and $800 thousand million (in 1968 dollars), providing 100 percent of the US energy needs in the year 2025 at a cost of $3000 per kW.
At that time, the project cost was 2-to-3 times larger than the whole Department of Energy budget and the projected cost of the electricity was well above the cost of most conventional energy sources. The rectenna sites on Earth were expected to take up to 145 square kilometers of land and would preclude habitation by any humans, animals, or even vegetation.
Each Satellite was to be the size of Manhattan Island. [note: Sounds curiously like the HAARP array, yes?]
(D) CIA experiments with the possibility of poisoning drinking water by injecting chemicals into the water supply of the FDA in Washington, DC.
(A) Charles Tart studied electrical engineering at MIT and received a PhD in psychology from the University of North Carolina. He taught humanistic and experimental psychology at the University of California, Davis. Has served as Instructor in Psychiatry at the University of Virginia Medical School, and as Lecturer in Psychology at Stanford University.
His work has dealt with parapsychology, sleep and dreaming, hypnosis, and psychoactive drugs. [Tart, Charles, ed., Altered States of Consciousness, Anchor Books, 1969, inside cover]
(B) Dr. Robert MacMahan of the Department of Defense requests from Congress $10 million to develop – within 5-to-10 years – a synthetic biological agent to which no natural immunity exists.
(A) Zbigniew Brzezinski – President Jimmy Carter’s National Security Director – said in his book Between Two Ages that weather control was a new weapon that would be the key element of strategy. “Technology will make available to leaders of major nations a variety of techniques for conducting secret warfare…”
He also wrote that “Accurately-timed, artificially-excited electronic strokes could lead to a pattern of oscillations that produce relatively high power levels over certain regions of the Earth … One could develop a system that would seriously impair the brain performance of a very large population in selected regions over an extended period.” [Cited in Baker’s “ELF Psychotronic Tyranny” paper.]
(B) Funding for the synthetic biological agent is obtained under H.R. 15090. The project – under the supervision of the CIA – is carried out by the Special Operations Division at Fort Detrick, the Army’s top-secret biological weapons facility. Speculation is raised that molecular biology techniques are used to produce AIDS-like retroviruses.
(C) United States intensifies its development of “ethnic weapons” (Military Review, Nov., 1970), designed to selectively target and eliminate specific ethnic groups who are susceptible due to genetic differences and variations in DNA.
(A) Hal Puthoff joined SRI in 1971 as a specialist in laser physics.
(B) circa 1972- Hubbard was hired by Willis Harman, (then director of the Educational Policy Research Center at SRI to be a special investigative agent) earning $100 a day. Officially he was a security guard although his actual duties included spying on the drug culture which Hubbard – a political conservative – disdained. He stayed at SRI until the late 1970s (Lee and Schlain, pg 198-9).
(C) According to Jack Sarfatti, a “very, very sophisticated and successful covert psychological warfare operation run by the late Brendan O Regan of the Institute of Noetic Sciences and the late Harold Chipman who was the CIA station chief responsible for all mind-control research in the Bay Area in the 70s.”
(A) Bruce Maccabee: Dr. Maccabee has been a Research Physicist at the Naval Surface Weapons Center in Silver Spring, Maryland since 1972. His work has centered on high power lasers, underwater sound, and the Ballistic Missile Defense. He holds a Ph.D. in Physics from the American University in Washington, DC. Dr. Maccabee was a member of the National Investigations Committee on Aerial Phenomena (i.e., UFOs).
(B) In early 1972, psychic Ingo Swann heard of Hal Puthoff’s research proposal through Cleve Backster. ccording to Swann, Backster maintained his intelligence connections, and Backster reported that the CIA was interested in his experiments. Some of Backster’s experiments are documented in “PRIMARY PERCEPTION: Cleve Backster’s astounding mind/plant communication discovery!”, Australian Lateral Thinking Newsletter,1996.
(C) Puthoff is head of the SRI remote-viewing program, 1972-85. After he left, Puthoff was replaced with Ed May, a former Naval Intelligence Officer. (Puthoff, Harold, “CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing Program at Stanford Research Institute”, Journal of Scientific Exploration, Vol. 10, No. 1, Spring 1996)
(D) The Taser – the first electrical shock device developed for use by law enforcement – delivers barbed, dart-shaped electrodes to a subject’s body and 50,000 volt pulses at 2-millionths of an amp over 12-14 seconds time.

(B) “Richard Kennett” is a pseudonym used by author Jim Schnabel in Remote Viewers (Dell, 1997) to describe a CIA scientist who worked with the remote-viewing project. In the photo insert is a picture of Kennett, Pat Price, and Harold Puthoff after a remote-viewing experiment involving a glider.
Elsewhere (example: Puthoff, Harold, “CIA-Initiated Remote Viewing Program at Stanford Research Institute”, Journal of Scientific Exploration, Vol. 10, No. 1, Spring 1996), the man in the photo on the left is identified as Chistopher Green. As there can’t be too many scientists at the CIA with an interest in the paranormal with this name, I feel safe in guessing that the two are the same, although I haven’t absolutely confirmed it. At any rate, here is the information on “Richard Kennett”, all from Remote Viewers.
In Spring 1973, he was an analyst with the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence with a Ph.D. in neurophysiology. “Within a decade, Kennett would be the assistant national intelligence officer for chemical and biological warfare issues”. His work concentrated on evaluating the health of foreign officials, but he also explored the fringes of medicine and psychology. It was under these circumstances that he challenged Hal Puthoff’s research at SRI, although he was not officially controlling the contract. (pg 104-6)
The initial challenge was to view a secret microwave receiving station. [This controversial experiment is dealt with at length here. According to Schnabel’s information, this would make Kennett the “East Coast challenger” from Mind Reach]. Kennett – as well as the team at SRI – were reportedly investigated by the Defense Investigative Service after the viewing. Kennett was also involved with the experiments with Uri Geller. (pg 139).
Kennett was also called in to look at the scientists at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory who began to see “visions” after experimenting with Geller. (pg 166-9) Kennett left the CIA around 1985. (pg 317)
(A) Monroe Institute. Founded and directed by Robert Monroe from 1974 until his death in1995. Had classified contracts with the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) on orders by Gen. Albert Stubblebine. The Institute studied their hemi-synch techniques to see if they could enhance soldiers’ performance and concentration. (Emerson, Steven, Secret Warriors, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1988, pg 103-4)
The primary area of research at the Monroe Institute involves using a binaural beat to cause different psychological effects. A binaural beat is created by using stereo headphones with each speaker emitting a slightly different frequency. The result is a tone at the frequency between the two, which allegedly causes the brain to “entrain” on the frequency (i.e. the brain waves regulate themselves to the same frequency).
The National Research council evaluated the Institute’s claims that the method could be used to improve learning. [National Research Council, Enhancing Human Performance, National Academy of Sciences, 1988, pg 111-4]
“..located near Charlottesville, Virginia. Bob Monroe – author of many books on ‘Out of Body Experiences’ – has long and close ties with the CIA. James Monroe – Bob’s father, if I’m not mistaken – was involved with the Human Ecology Society – a CIA front organization of the late 50s and 60s.
The Monroe Institute has done research on accelerated learning and foreign language learning through the use of altered states of consciousness for the CIA and other government organizations.
Government interest in the more radical research going on at the Institute remains only tantalizing speculation. Official classified document storage boxes have been seen at their mail-order outlet located in Lovingston, VA.” (Porter, Tom, Government Research into ESP & Mind Control, March, 1996)
The Monroe Institute trained the government viewers from Ft. Meade in Out of Body Experiences (OBEs). Courtney Brown also went through this training which involves using the Institute’s Hemisync tapes. These tapes – which work by using a binaural beat to entrain brain waves – caused Brown to feel that he left his body and communicated with aliens. [Brown, Courtney, Cosmic Voyage, Dutton, 1996]
(B) In 1974, Jack Sarfatti is director of a physics program at the Esalen Institute. He’s been funded by Werner Erhard and Jean Lanier (a friend of Laurance Rockefeller). (Sarfatti, Jack, “The Parsifal Effect”, The Destiny Matrix)
Sarfatti met with Puharich, Uri Geller, and Ira Einhorn at Puharich’s Ossining ranch. Einhorn acted as a literary agent for Sarfatti and brought him to Esalen Physics /Consciousness research group. This is where it all started back in 1975. PCRG was co-founded by Jack Sarfatti and Michael Murphy at the Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California in 1974. Financed by Werner Erhard, Jean Lanier, and the late George Koopman, the PCRG nurtured the creation of books like Space-Time and Beyond, The Tao of Physics, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, Cosmic Trigger, and The Roots of Consciousness.
The group included the physicists and authors Fred Alan Wolf, Nick Herbert, and Fritjof Capra, along with Saul Paul Sirag, Henry Dakin, Robert Anton Wilson, Uri Geller, Barbara Honneger, the late Brendan O Regan, George Leonard, Gary Zukav, Ira Einhorn, and artist Lynn Hershmann. Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson along with physicists David Finkelstein, Russell Targ, Karl Pribram, Henry Stapp, Phillipe Eberhard, and Ralph Abraham all came for shorter visits.
The group is now reborn on the World Wide Web 20 years later with both new and old faces. According to George Koopman, the PCRG was the inspiration for the film Ghost.
(A) Saturn V Rocket. Due to a malfunction, the Saturn V rocket burned unusually high in the atmosphere – above 300 km. This burn produced “a large ionospheric hole” (Mendillo, M. et al., Science, p. 187, 343, 1975). The disturbance reduced the total electron content more than 60% over an area 1,000 km in radius and lasted for several hours. It prevented all telecommunications over a large area of the Atlantic Ocean.
The phenomenon was apparently caused by a reaction between the exhaust gases and ionospheric oxygen ions. The reaction emitted a 6300 Å airglow. Between 1975 and 1981, NASA and the U.S. Military began to design ways to test this new phenomena through deliberate experimentation with the ionosphere.
(B) Bruce Maccabee joined MUFON and was appointed State Director for Maryland and a Consultant in Photo Analysis and Laser Physics.
(C) In the 1970s, Mike Murphy became interested in Russian parapsychology and visited the country to meet experimenters in this field. This led to a close connection between Esalen and some Russian officials, who set up an exchange program. Lasting into the 1980s, this exchange was dubbed “hot-tub diplomacy”. John Mack was reportedly involved in this exchange.
In the late 1970s, Esalen became involved with an Englishwoman named Jenny O’Connor, who claimed to be in psychic contact with ‘the Nine’ (probably the same “Nine” that Andriah Puharich claimed to be in contact with). Dick Price and other members of the Esalen staff became increasingly dependent on ‘the Nine’ to the point of listing them as program leaders and members of the Esalen Gestalt Staff in brochures. (Anderson, pg 302)
(D) The virus section of Fort Detrick’s Center for Biological Warfare Research is renamed the Fredrick Cancer Research Facilities and placed under the supervision of the National Cancer Institute (NCI). It is here that a special virus cancer program is initiated by the U.S. Navy, purportedly to develop cancer-causing viruses. It is also here that retrovirologists isolate a virus to which no immunity exists. It is later named HTLV (Human T-cell Leukemia Virus).
“Unpublished analyses of microwave bioeffects literature were disseminated to the U.S. Congress and to other officials arguing the case for remote control of human behavior by radar.” (From the Journal of Microwave Power, 12(4), 1977, p 320. Research by Harlan Girard.)
(A) Around late-1976 to 1977, Dale Graff – then a physicist with the Air Force’s Foreign Technology Division – gave a small contract to the SRI research team. Graff wanted to replicate some Soviet psi experiments done in submarines, as well as test the Soviet hypothesis that psi was transmitted via ELF (Extremely Low Frequency) electromagnetic waves.
These test were conducted in July, 1977 with the help of Stephan Schwartz, a former Navy officer and psychic researcher. Schwartz helped procure a submarine for a July 1977 experiment with SRI. These experiments included some on behalf of Dale Graff of the Air Force. (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, Dell, 1997, pg 207) Research associate with the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory.
(B) Around 1976, Koslov – as the scientific assistant to the secretary of the Navy – was being briefed on various contracts the Navy held, including one for SRI. The section describing the contract at SRI was headed “ELF AND MIND CONTROL” (ELF stands for Extremely-Low Frequency). Reportedly, Koslov was upset by the label and cancelled the contract with SRI. “I don’t believe it’s the function of the military to support parapsychology.” (Wilhelm, John, “Psychic Spying?”, Washington Post 08/07/77, B5)
According to another account, the heading was “Sensing of Remote EM sources (Physiological Correlates)”. According to this account, Koslov thought the project dealt with mind-control and looked into the contract in more detail. He found that it dealt with psychic research which upset him as well, and ordered the contract to be cancelled. (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers, Dell, 1997, pg 206)
Either Wilhelm paraphrased and misinterpreted the section heading on the briefing, or the story was sanitized somewhere along the line before reaching Schnabel’s book. In either case, the Navy continued to fund psychic research (Wilhelm, 1977) and has been one of the biggest funders of research related to electronic mind-control.
(A) Christopher Bird presented a paper on “dowsing” and the psychic ability of plants at the “Mind Over Matter” conference at Penn State University, late January,\ 1977, organized by Ira Einhorn. Other attendees included Andrija Puharich and Thomas Bearden (Levy, pg 189).
(B) Soon afterwards, Einhorn and the “Psychic Mafia” focused their attention on ELF mind-control (Levy, pg 190). He suggests that his murder charge could have been a set-up by the CIA or KGB for his interest in activities by America and Russia in the areas of psychic warfare, Tesla technology, and mind-control (Levy, pg 242). Puharich says that Einhorn’s work wasn’t important enough to elicit such a reaction (Levy, pg 308). The likelihood is that Einhorn – like many of the individuals involved in COINTELPRO – was merely a “useful idiot” who was as manipulated as those he sought to manipulate.
Einhorn led seminars at the Esalen Institute and was involved with the Physics/Consciousness Research Group. He reportedly worked with Congressman Charlie Rose, a large supporter of psychic studies, on classified projects. Senate hearings on Health and Scientific Research confirm that 239 populated areas had been contaminated with biological agents between 1949 and 1969. Some of the areas included San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Key West, Panama City, Minneapolis, and St. Louis.

(B) Hungarians presented a state-of-the-art paper on infrasonic weapons to the United Nations, “Working Paper on Infrasound Weapons”, United Nations CD/575, 14 Aug 1978 (from The Road From Armageddon by Peter Lewis).
(C) SPS Military Implications
Early review of the Solar Powered Satellite project began in around 1978, and I [Rosalie Bertell] was on the review panel. Although this was proposed as an energy program, it had significant military implications. One of the most significant – first pointed out by Michael J. Ozeroff – was the possibility of developing a satellite-borne beam weapon for anti-ballistic missile (ABM) use.
The satellites were to be in geosynchronous orbits with each providing an excellent vantage point from which an entire hemisphere can be surveyed continuously. It was speculated that a high-energy laser beam could function as a thermal weapon to disable or destroy enemy missiles. There was some discussion of electron weapon beams through the use of a laser beam to preheat a path for the following electron beam.
The SPS was also described as a psychological and anti-personnel weapon which could be directed toward an enemy. If the main microwave beam was redirected away from its rectenna toward enemy personnel, it could use an infrared radiation wavelength (invisible) as an anti-personnel weapon. It might also be possible to transmit high enough energy to ignite combustible materials.
Laser beam power relays could be made from the SPS satellite to other satellites or platforms – for example, aircraft – for military purposes. One application might be a laser powered turbofan engine which would receive the laser beam directly in its combustion chamber, producing the required high temperature gas for its cruising operation. This would allow unlimited on-station cruise time. As a psychological weapon, the SPS was capable of causing general panic.
The SPS would be able to transmit power to remote military operations anywhere needed on Earth. The manned platform of the SPS would provide surveillance and early warning capability as well as ELF linkage to submarines. It would also provide the capability of jamming enemy communications. The potential for jamming and creating communications is significant. The SPS was also capable of causing physical changes in the ionosphere.
President Carter approved the SPS project and gave it a go-ahead in spite of the reservation which many reviewers – myself included – expressed. Fortunately, it was so expensive – exceeding the entire Department of Energy budget – that funding was denied by the Congress. I approached the United Nations Committee on Disarmament on this project.
But I was told that as long as the program was called “solar energy” by the United States, it could not be considered a “weapons” project. The same project resurfaced in the US under President Reagan. He moved it to the much larger budget of the Department of Defense and called it “Star Wars”. Since this is more recent history, I will not discuss the debate which raged over this phase of the plan.
By 1978, it was apparent to the U.S. Military that communications in a nuclear hostile environment would not be possible using traditional methods of radio and television technology (Jane’s Military Communications 1978).
By 1982, GTE Sylvania (Needham Heights, Massachusetts) had developed a command&control electronic sub-system for the U.S. Air Force’s Ground-Launched Cruise Missiles (GLCM) that would enable military commanders to monitor and control the missile prior to launch both in hostile and non-hostile environments. The system contains 6 radio subsystems, created with visible light using a dark beam (not visible) and is resistant to the disruptions experienced by radio and television.
Dark beams contribute to the formation of energetic plasma in the atmosphere. This plasma can become visible as smog or fog. Some has a different charge than the Sun’s energy and accumulates in places where the Sun’s energy is absent, like the polar regions in the Winter. When the polar Spring occurs, the Sun appears and repels this plasma, contributing to holes in the ozone layer.
This military system is called Ground Wave Emergency Network (GWEN). (See The SECOMII Communication System, by Wayne Olsen, SAND 78-0391,Sandia Laboratories, Albuquerque, New Mexico, April 1978.)
This innovative emergency radio system was apparently never implemented in Europe and exists only in North America.
(A) In February 1979, Alfred Hubbard attended an LSD reunion party hosted by Dr. Oscar Janiger along with Laura Huxley, Sidney Cohn, John Lilly, Willis Harman, and Timothy Leary among others (Lee and Schlain, 213).
(B) Around 1979, SRI funded a project of Tart’s which screened university students and faculty for psychic ability. (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, Dell, 1997, pg 225-6)
(C) In an article entitled “The Fund for CIA Research, or Who’s Disinforming Who?”, the anonymous authors (the Associated Investigators Group) accuse Bruce Maccabee of working with the CIA, providing them with information, and letting the CIA affect his leadership in FUFOR. According to the article, Maccabee’s main contact with the CIA was through Dr. Christopher Green.
In a written response, Maccabee rebuts that most of his contacts with the CIA have been in the context of his work with the Navy and are unrelated to his UFO research. He says that he did give CIA employees informal lectures at the request of Ron Pandolfi, but that the CIA has never attempted to influence his research.
[A similar rebuttal was written by Aviary guy Dan Smith and Rosemary Ellen Guiley of Fate Magazine, and New Age Land Central – in later years – after similar accusations were made.]
“I never contacted any companies. What I did was tell Jack Acuff – Director of NICAP at the time – that I would like to speak to experts in the field of radar. He, in turn, put me in contact with a scientist – Dr. Gordon MacDonald – at the MITRE corporation. I was invited to discuss the NZ sightings with him and several other scientists at MITRE in McLean, VA.
And I did (and they generally agreed with my conclusions). Then a week-or-so later, I learned that MacDonald had contacted a man at the CIA who contacted me and offered to provide technical consultation if I would provide a briefing to some CIA employees. At first, I was leery of doing anything with the CIA. But I knew they had radar experts, so I stipulated that if they would give me some feedback I’d tell them what I know.
So I briefed them and I received some helpful comments…” [note: When you dance with the Devil, the Devil doesn’t change – the Devil changes YOU!]
“After I discussed the NZ case one employee – Dr. Christopher “Kit” Green (KG) – invited me to visit the CIA again a week-or-so later to have a general UFO discussion with him and a couple of other employees… After that last meeting with KG in the spring of 1979, I didn’t see him again and had no contact with the agency until June, 1984 when I was contacted by Dr. Ronald Pandolfi regarding my Navy work.
He had been tracking developments by the “other side” in that field of research and wanted to know what the U.S. state-of-the-art was.” (Bruce Maccabee’s response to the AIR report)
Formerly with the CIA, Dr. Green’s work involved UFO research.
“Dr. Green attained a Ph.D. in Neurophysiology in 1969 and in1976 received his M.D. (Doctor of Medicine) degree. Green was awarded the CIA’s National Intelligence Medal for his work on a ‘classified project’ from 1979 to 1983 – precisely the years in which Maccabee was meeting with him at CIA headquarters.
Green uses somewhat of a cover story to describe his CIA work, calling himself a ‘Scientific Advisor on the Advisory Board to the Directorate of Intelligence, CIA.'” (The Associated Investigators Group, “The Fund for CIA Research, or Who’s Disinforming Who?”)
Esalen also held seminars in quantum physics, and was the birthplace of the Physics/Consciousness Research Group. Some results of these seminars are documented in Zukav, Gary, The Dancing Wu Li Masters, Morrow Quill, 1979
(A) By the 1980’s, Koslov was working with the Applied Physics Laboratory at Johns Hopkins University, where he continued to study the effects of electromagnetic radiation on humans. He is currently the vice president of the Maryland Microscopical and Scientific Instrument Society.
(B) Dale Graff had continued to task SRI on behalf of the Air Force for the next few years. In 1980, he won a fellowship for “exceptional analyst” within the intelligence community and planned to take 2 years off to conduct research in other laboratories: SRI, a psychokenesis lab at Princeton, a J.B. Rhine affiliated lab in Durham, NC, and a Department of Energy lab where microwave weapons were being studied. His fellowship was revoked by the office of the Air Force Chief of Staff and – with the encouragement of Jack Vorona – he retired from the Air Force and moved to the DIA, where he ran the Advanced Concepts Office.
(C) “Michelle Smith” and Lawrence Pazder published “Michelle Remembers” about Satanic Ritual Abuse memories. She came to therapist Pazder because she was in distress over horrible dreams and a miscarriage.
(A) Orbit Maneuvering System
Part of the plan to build the SPS space platforms was the demand for reusable space shuttles since they could not afford to keep discarding rockets.
In 1981, The NASA Spacelab-3 mission of the Space Shuttle made “a series of passes over a network of 5 ground based observatories” in order to study what happened to the ionosphere when the Shuttle injected gases into it from the Orbit Maneuvering System (OMS). They discovered that they could “induce ionospheric holes” and began to experiment with holes made in the daytime or at night over Millstone, Connecticut and Arecibo, Puerto Rico.
They experimented with the effects of,
“artificially induced ionospheric depletions on very low frequency wave lengths, on equatorial plasma instabilities, and on low frequency radio astronomical observations over Roberval, Quebec, Kwajelein, in the Marshall Islands, and Hobart, Tasmania” (Advanced Space Research, Vo1.8, No. 1, 1988).
(B) Eldon Byrd – who worked for Naval Surface Weapons, Office of Non-Lethal Weapons – was commissioned in 1981 to develop electromagnetic devices for purposes including ‘riot control’, clandestine operations and hostage removal.
“Byrd also wrote of experiments where behavior of animals was controlled by exposure to weak electromagnetic fields. ‘At a certain frequency and power intensity, they could make the animal purr, lay down, and roll over.'” (Keeler, Anna, “Remote Mind Control Technology”)
“Between 1981 and September 1982, the Navy commissioned me to investigate the potential of developing electromagnetic devices that could be used as non-lethal weapons by the Marine Corp for the purpose of ‘riot control’, hostage removal, clandestine operations, and so on.” Eldon Byrd, Naval Surface Weapons Center, Silver Spring MD. (from “Electromagnetic Pollution” by Kim Besly, p 12.)
(C) John Alexander supported the views of Thomas Bearden. Delivered a paper to the 1981 national convention of the US Psychotronic Association
(D) General Albert Stubblebine. Former head of the U.S. Army Intelligence & Security Command (INSCOM) 1981-84, Masters degree in chemical engineering from Columbia. He signed classified contracts with the Monroe Institute (Emerson, Steven, Secret Warriors, G.P. Putnam’s Sons, 1988, pg 103-4). Stubblebine often met with Noriega while he was a U.S. intelligence asset (Emerson, 1988, pg 110-1).
Stubblebine was the former boss of Col. John Alexander, and the two have held numerous “spoon-bending” parties. He is a friend of Lyn Buchanan [according to a representative from PSI TECH, the two are not friends]. Stubblebine is married to ufologist Rima Laibow. (Porter, Tom, Government Research into ESP & Mind Control, March, 1996).
Soon after becoming head of INSCOM, Stubblebine began a program called the “High Performance Task Force” – a series of methods to improve his officers’ performance. These ranged from the neuro-linquistic programming of Tony Robbins to the hemisynch tapes of the Monroe Institute where Stubblebine often sent his officers. (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, Dell, 1997, pg 276)
Following an incident involving an officer having a psychotic episode at the Monroe Institute, Stubblebine resigned in 1984. He was replaced by Major General Harry Soyster (Schnabel, 1997, pg 316), formerly vice-president for ‘Intelligence Systems’ of BDM of McClean, Virginia. As of 1992, Chairman of PSI-TECH.
“Laibow, Stubblebine, and ufologist Victoria Lacas (with [C.B. Scott] Jones in the shadows) toured Europe and the Soviet Union, where they have established a prodigious UFO/Psi network.” (Durant, Robert J., “Will the Real Scott Jones Please Stand Up?”) Stubblebine gave a lecture at the International Symposium on UFO Research – sponsored by the International Association for New Science – in Denver, Colorado (May 22-25, 1992).
This gives a good example of Stubblebine’s coherence (or lack thereof) and paranoia (he often threatened to destroy the tape). Stubblebine claimed that none of the members of the remote-viewing program had prior psychic abilities or interests (but all other sources state that they did).
(E) In the Summer of 1981, Pat Delgado brought to the attention of the national Press the existence of mysterious circular depressions in the fields at Cheesefoot Head, Hampshire.
(F) Budd Hopkins published Missing Time with an afterward by therapist Aphrodite Clamar. Hopkins book was about the in-depth investigation of 19 cases of UFO abduction which he had undertaken in the previous 5 years.
(G) The first cases of AIDS are confirmed in homosexual men in New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, triggering speculation that AIDS may have been introduced via the Hepatitis-B vaccine.
(A) In May 1982, Elisabeth and Russell Targ held a workshop on psychic phenomena for 25 professionals.
This was part of a program with Stanislav Grof, who was studying non-chemical alternatives for altered states of consciousness. The Targs goal was to show that psychic experiences did not require an “altered state”. (Targ, Russell and Harary, Keith, Mind Race, Villard Books, 1984, pg 99). Grof served briefly as the branch chief of the operational unit of Star Gate from around 1982 or 83 until he resigned in summer of 1993.
(B) Electromagnetic weapons for law enforcement use in Great Britain.
A 10-30 Hz strobe light which can produce seizures, giddiness, nausea, and fainting was developed by Charles Bovill of the now defunct British firm Allen International. Addition of sound pulses in the 4.0-7.5 Hz range increases effectiveness as utilized in the Valkyrie – a “frequency” weapon advertised in British Defense Equipment Catalogue until 1983.
The squawk box or “sound curdler” uses 2 loudspeakers of 350-watt output to emit 2 slightly different frequencies which combine in the ear to produce a shrill shrieking noise. The U.S. National Science Foundation report says there is “severe risk of permanent impairment of hearing.” (From Electropollution by Kim Besley, citing the Manchester City Council Police Monitoring Unit document.)
(C) Air Force review of biotechnology.
“Currently available data allow the projection that specially generated radiofrequency radiation (RFR) fields may pose powerful and revolutionary antipersonnel military threats. Electroshock therapy indicates the ability of induced electric current to completely interrupt mental functioning for short periods of time to obtain cognition for longer periods and to restructure emotional response over prolonged intervals.
“… impressed electromagnetic fields can be disruptive to purposeful behavior and may be capable of directing and/or interrogating such behavior. Further, the passage of approximately 100 milliamperes through the myocardium can lead to cardiac standstill and death, again pointing to a speed-of-light weapons effect.
“A rapidly scanning RFR system could provide an effective stun or kill capability over a large area.” (From “Final Report on Biotechnology Research Requirements for Aeronautical Systems Through the Year 2000”. AFOSR-TR-82-0643, Vol 1, and Vol 2, July 30, 1982.)

(B) Nikolai Khokhlov – a Soviet KGB agent who defected to the West in 1976 – interviews recently arrived scientists and reports that “The Soviet mind-control program is run by the KGB with unlimited funds.” (From The Spectator, Feb 5, 1983, reported in “New World Order Psychotronic Tyranny” by C. B. Baker.)
(C) “Center Lane” was the codename for the operational unit of the remote-viewing program, redesignated from Grill Flame in late 1983. Control of the unit shifted from INSCOM’s operation group to the more direct control of Albert Stubblebine. The unit was known as INSCOM Center Lane Project (ICLP). (Schnabel, Jim, Remote Viewers: The Secret History of America’s Psychic Spies, Dell, 1997, pg 280)
In late 1983, 4 more individuals were recruited to Center Lane: Captain Ed Dames, Captain Bill Ray (counterintelligence specialist), Captain Paul Smith, and Charlene Cavanaugh (civilian analyst with INSCOM). These four began a training program – which started at The Monroe Institute – and concluded with personal training with Ingo Swann. (Schnabel, 1997, pg 292-3)
After Gen. Stubblebine’s retirement in 1984, Center Lane was completely without support in the Army. Jack Vorona arranged for the unit to be transferred directly to the DIA’s Scientific and Technical Intelligence Directorate when Army funding ran out in late 1985, at which time it was redesignated Sun Streak. Until that time, the unit was given no official taskings (Schnabel, 1997, pg 319).
Center Lane started when Ingo Swann at SRI came across a breakthrough in his techniques in 1983. He developed a training program and trained 6 military officers (including Ed Dames) over a period of 6 months. After finishing the training in late 1983, the viewers returned and started applying their knowledge.
The unit was renamed ‘Center Lane’ with Dames as the operations and training officer. “Dames took a ‘let’s see what this baby can do’ approach, replacing the unit’s former intelligence collection methodology with the breakthrough technique.” (Dames, Ed, “Ed Dames Sets the Record Straight”) [Keep in mind that Dames is a major disinfo artist.]
“USSR: New Beam Energy Possible?”, possibly associated with early Soviet weather engineering efforts over the U.S. (from “Tesla’s Electromagnetics and Its Soviet Weaponization” by T.E. Bearden.) According to former Reagan aide Barbara Honneger,
“the fundamental reason for the increased interest [in psi research] is initial results coming out of laboratories in the United States and Canada that certain amplitude and frequency combinations of external electromagnetic radiation in the brain-wave frequency range are capable of bypassing the external sensory mechanism of organisms – including humans – and directly stimulating higher-level neuronal structures in the brain.
This electronic stimulation is known to produce mental changes at a distance, including hallucinations in various sensory modalities – particularly auditory.” (McRae, Ronald, Mind Wars, St. Martin’s Press, 1984, pg 136)
The overlap between these 2 fields can be described as:
Some ELF mind-control studies have been discussed under the heading of “psychotronics”. Many – myself included – don’t agree with this label as there is no psychic component in the study of the effects of electromagnetic radiation on the central nervous system.
As in most scientific fields, research that is tangential for one project may be central to another. Navy studies in ELF communications included a portion on possible health effects. When these findings were revealed, the possibility of using ELF as a weapon arose and studies were continued in that direction. However, we can’t say that all of the Navy’s research into ELF radio was a front for mind-control as they have a definite interest in communication with their submarines. The same may be true for remote-viewing studies. Studies at SRI and elsewhere measured and analyzed subject’s brain waves, and also studied the effects of ELF waves as a possible carrier for telepathic information.
Some studies – especially those involving dolphins – tried to use technology to enhance psychic phenomena. Most of this is pure bunk including most of the inventions I’ve seen created by the Russians and the US Psychotronic Association. Some of it resembles telepathy simulated by technology, such as the attempt to carry signals from dolphins to humans via the “Neurophone”. This would seem to fit better under “Mis-identification”.
Remote-viewing – like UFOs – has been postulated by some researchers as being used as a “cover story” for covert mind-control experiments. This plan would convince the victims that the “voices” or sensory data they were unnaturally receiving was due to channeling, telepathy, or remote-viewing. It would also have the “high-weirdness” factor, which would preclude a serious treatment of the subject by the mainstream media. However, I’m hesitant to lump the entire spectrum of government interest in psi in this category.
Both psychic ability and things like non-lethal weapons are considered to be on the “cutting edge” of military theory. This is an alternative explanation as to why individuals like John Alexander and David Morehouse are interested in both fields. The degree to which these crossovers apply to specific cases are dealt with individually, and to this subject as a whole in the conclusions.
(A) Founded by Ed May, the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory was formed at SRI in 1985 and moved with May to SAIC. May and the Cognitive Sciences Laboratory are currently at a “small start-up research place called the Laboratories for Fundamental Research” (e-mail from Ed May, 8/7/96).
Joe McMoneagle is listed as a research associate. Other staff members include S. James, P. Spottiswoode, Earling DeGraff, Nevin D. Lantz, Philip Wasserman, Laura V. Faith, Ellen Messer, and Stephan A. Schwartz.
“I (Dean Radin) took a leave of absence from Bell Labs in 1985 and spent that entire year at SRI International, working with Hal Puthoff and Ed May.
Since then, I spent about half my time in academia (Princeton, Edinburgh, UNLV) and half in industry (Contel Technology Center, GTE Labs). My academic research was exclusively on psi phenomena, and my industrial research included about 20% on psi.
“I’m not in favor of developing or using psi for any military purposes. But unfortunately there are those in the World who would use psi as a weapon if they could.
Thus, I reluctantly suppose that R& D on psi for intelligence and possibly military purposes can be justified for defensive reasons. It would be naive to think that someone, somewhere is not working on this right now.”
(Interview with the RetroPsychoKinesis Project)
(B) Since the early 1970s, Puthoff had been a part-time paid consultant to Bill Church regarding alternative fuel sources. At Puthoff’s urging, Church developed a company (Jupiter Technologies) to research Zero-Point Energy. In the summer of 1985 after giving only 2 weeks notice, Puthoff left SRI to work for Church full time. (Schnabel, Jim, 1997, pg 323)

(D) Innovative Shuttle Experiments
An innovative use of the Space Shuttle to perform space physics experiments in Earth orbit was launched, using the OMS injections of gases to “cause a sudden depletion in the local plasma concentration – the creation of a so-called ionospheric hole”. This artificially-induced plasma depletion can then be used to investigate other space phenomena, such as the growth of the plasma instabilities or the modification of radio propagation paths.
The 47 second OMS burn of July 29, 1985 produced the largest and most long-lived ionospheric hole to date, dumping some 830 kg of exhaust into the ionosphere at sunset. A 6-second, 68-km OMS release above Connecticut in August 1985 produced an airglow which covered over 400,000 square km.
During the 1980s, rocket launches globally numbered about 500-to-600 a year, peaking at 1500 in 1989. There were many more during the Gulf War. The Shuttle is the largest of the solid fuel rockets with twin 45-meter boosters. All solid fuel rockets release large amounts of hydrochloric acid in their exhaust.
Each Shuttle flight injects about 75 tons of ozone-destroying chlorine into the stratosphere. Those launched since 1992 inject even more ozone-destroying chlorine (about 187 tons) into the stratosphere (which contains the ozone layer).

(A) Attorney General’s Conference on Less Than Lethal Weapons
Reviews current weapons available. Most date back to 1972: the Taser; the Nova XR-5000 Stun Gun (can interrupt a pacemaker); the Talon, a glove with an electrical pulse generator; and the Source, a flashlight with electrodes at the base.
These devices are useful only at close range except for the Taser, and are generally restricted to correctional institutions. Photic driving strobe lights tested by one conference delegate on 100 subjects produced discomfort. Closed eyelids do not block the effect. Evidence that ELF produces nausea and disorientation. Suggestion to develop fast-acting electro sleep-inducing EM weapon. Discusses problem of testing weapons on animals and human “volunteers”.

(C) On 02/10/86, Cleve Backster’s lab was visited by National Research Council’s Committee on Techniques for the Enhancement of Human Performance. The NRC was evaluating enhancement and parapsychological studies conducted for the Army. So it is likely that Backster’s research was involved with the Government. (National Research Council, Enhancing Human Performance, National Academy of Sciences, 1988, pg 193-8)
(D) Mighty Oaks
In April 1986 just before the Chernobyl disaster, the U.S. had a failed hydrogen test at the Nevada Test Site called “Mighty Oaks”. This test – conducted far underground – consisted of a hydrogen bomb explosion in one chamber with a leaded steel door to the chamber (2 meters thick) closing within milliseconds of the blast.
The door was to allow only the first radioactive beam to escape into the “control room” in which expensive instrumentation was located. The radiation was to be captured as a weapon beam.
The door failed to close as quickly as planned, causing the radioactive gases and debris to fill the control room and destroying millions of dollars worth of equipment. The experiment was part of a program to develop X-ray and particle beam weapons.
The radioactive releases from Mighty Oaks were vented under a “licensed venting” and were likely responsible for many of the North American nuclear fallout reports in May 1986, which were attributed to the Chernobyl disaster.
(E) According to the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (83:4007-4011), HIV and VISNA are highly similar and share all structural elements except for a small segment which is nearly identical to HTLV.

(B) Desert Storm
According to Defense News, April 13-19, 1992, the US deployed an electromagnetic pulse weapon (EMP) in Desert Storm, designed to mimic the flash of electricity from a nuclear bomb. The Sandia National Laboratory had built a 23,000 square meter laboratory on the Kirkland Air Force Base in 1989 to house the Hermes II electron beam generator capable of producing 20 Trillion Watt pulses lasting 20-to-25 billionths-of-a-second. This X-ray simulator is called a “Particle Beam Fusion Accelerator”. A stream of electrons hitting a metal plate can produce a pulsed X-ray or gamma ray. Hermes II had produced electron beams since 1974. These devices were apparently tested during the Gulf War, although detailed information on them is sparse.
(A) Eldon Byrd told me [Dick Farley] about it [lawsuit w/ Randi] over dinner at C. B. “Scott” Jones home one evening of several we spent together back in ’92 and ’93 there.
“Byrd said that Uri Geller put up $10,000 for his legal costs. Byrd and Geller are good friends, from back in the ’70s…”
“Byrd says he had been “set-up” by postal inspectors – part of some initiative to discredit him because he was too public with his personal interests in “psi,” etc. He’d allegedly had some Navy security clearance issues dog him, which contributed to his early retirement as one of their senior most civilian scientists.”
“When he was still with the Navy, Dr. Byrd was the contract manager for some of the research Michael Persinger did on ‘neuro-impacts’ of various EMFs and ELFs. Something about wave-propagation and influences on submariners if somebody “beeped” them with mind-influencing EMF signals, etc. That kind of thing.” (Farley, Dick, “False Memory Spindrome”)
(B) John Alexander. Last year, Alexander organized a national conference devoted to researching “reports of ritual abuse, Near-Death Experiences, human contacts with extraterrestrial aliens, and other so-called anomalous experiences”, the Albuquerque Journal reported in March 1993.
“The U.S. Army’s Armament Research, Development, and Engineering Center is conducting a one-year study of Acoustic Beam Technology … The command awarded the 1-year study to Scientific Applications and Research Associates of Huntington Beach, CA.

(D) Dan Smith [the Aviary’s physicist “Chicken Little”] was for a while engaged to marry the illustrious Rosemary Ellen Guiley, who numbered Von Ward, Jones, Colin Andrews, and a host of others on her “Center for Crop Circle Studies” advisory panel back in ’92-93. Rosie’s moved ahead (upward?) to the angelic realms, following the market and the money.
But she does have the corner on American expertise on Wicca, and her close relationship with former (now retired) Defense Intelligence Agency (DIA) “weird desk” and senior “applied anomalous” guy Dale Graff … who was from my contacts with Scott Jones’. [Aviary’s Prince Hans Adam- & Laurence Rockefeller-funded retired Naval Intel Cmdr. Cecil B. “Scott” Jones] Affiliated with Sen. Claiborne Pell, with Dale Graff being the latter’s “inside man” at the DIA.
The ” Aquarium Conspiracy” by Dan Smith and Rosemary Ellen Guiley
In the beginning, there was “eschatology” – the branch of theology dealing with the end times. Having spent many years first studying physics and then metaphysics, Dan came to the conclusion that the scientists have been looking at the World upside-down. Mind – not matter – is the foundation for all realities. Moreover, the materialist paradigm was in danger of imminent collapse, being subverted on the inside by its own contradictions and on the outside by the growing body of evidence for the paranormal.
Creating and maintaining a reality is no easy game. It requires a lot of magic and a lot of conscious critters like ourselves who are pretty good at collective self-deception. Fortunately – or perhaps unfortunately – our particular reality game has about reached its natural conclusion, and we are waking up to the fact that mind and matter are not separate. We are undergoing an exciting-but-stressful revolution in our collective consciousness. This revolution – or global spiritual emergency – will bring upheavals and overloads in our global consciousness that will impact the material Earth for better-or-worse, and may quickly get out-of-control. We also will be opening up to other realities that will be impacting us as well.
Our present very tidy sense of ‘reality’ and its boundaries is due to become much more fluid and permeable. Every spiritual tradition takes very seriously its prophesies about the End of the World. But for the first time, we are seeing these prophesies turning into believable predictions of Earth and reality changes. That is how Dan fell from physics into eschatology. [This last remark tells us that Rosemary is the one doing the writing here.]
After experiencing numerous slammed doors among his former scientific colleagues, he decided that the most logical place to find fellow eschatologists would be in various intelligence agencies and among investigators of the paranormal. Dan next addressed how to communicate about the eschaton. Even a small hint that the Government is worried about the End of the World might start a chain reaction of panic, which could possibly serve as a trigger for the eschaton.
On the other hand, people inside the Government might be wanting to set up a kind of civil defense network vis-a-vis the eschaton. And so they would be looking for people on the outside who could much more freely network among the general public.
An important link in the communication chain is what has become known as the “Aviary”. This is the final link next to the public network, and so it must be heavily disguised by its own surrealistic smoke screen. The Aviary functions best by amplifying people’s own misconceptions about the paranormal. It does this by helping to overinflate individual pieces of the puzzle so that particular investigators get pushed further into their own blind alleys. People are encouraged to be so “distracted by the trees that they fail to see the forest”.
This cacophony by people looking for truth in all the strangest places provides an excellent cover for the deadly serious business of clearing the decks and battening down the hatches for the eschaton event. It is like a Manhattan Project going on behind the scenes of alien grays and praying mantises having sex with humans. However, this eschaton conspiracy is being orchestrated by higher powers. And we don’t mean the “Committee of 300”. Very few of the people even near the center of the orchestration have a clear picture of what is coming down. But they do know that something is coming, and that they will have front-row seats. [note: Interesting that Guiley compares the government actions behind the scenes to the Manhattan Project, since that resulted in the most destructive weapon known to historical man up to that time. And now, subconsciously, Ms. Guiley has revealed to us the agenda: Total destruction of the masses of humanity except for those few elite who “help the project” and “sign agreements” to keep secrets – such as herself. “When you dance with the Devil, the Devil doesn’t change – the Devil changes YOU.]
The “Manhattan Project” relative to the eschaton is a global civilian network of people who will serve as a lightning rod for the cosmic energies coming in during the consciousness revolution. They will be looking to channel these energies into expanded realities. Thus, they will provide a degree of protection for those people who can find their places alongside the network.
Outside of the network, there will be greater levels of trauma and confusion. The pieces of the network are already in place. The remaining task is to properly activate and link the pieces into a critical mass of awareness. This last step is now underway. This is how an ‘Aviary’ helps to spawn an ‘Aquarium’, and how ‘birds’ learn to swim. The Aquarium is our business, and we are working to reach people who are ready to be activated in the consciousness revolution.
And here Ms. Guiley has described exactly what the Cassiopeans have described for us and have helped us to uncover – that the Negative Hierarchy has created the New Age Movement, the Human Potential Movement, the “Contactee” and Gray Abduction Phenomenon for the express purpose of locking the planet into total Control – to make it a “headquarters” for the Lords of Darkness.
And as the C’s have said regarding the “Higher Powers” that Ms. Guiley reverentially refers to above:
A: At those levels, there is only one “Master.”
Q: (L) “Those levels”? What ‘levels’?
A: Levels that can hand down orders to bury or suppress. … Those who are at that level have been bought-and-paid for by both giving knowledge of upcoming cataclysmic vents, and promised survival and positions of power after. It is not difficult to realize that there is a body of such types in positions of power already. Power is not only attractive to such types, but they are also the kind most easily corrupted by it.
We also notice that Ms. Guiley has compared the process to that of “birds learning to swim”. In other words, she and Mr. Smith are giving their signature as part of the Scale Gang – the Reptilian Overlords, as opposed to the Avian followers of the All Giving Mother.
According to Dan Smith – who undoubtedly is privy to a wealth of accurate though not widely known UFO information – this data is being released through him due to the grave concern by high government officials about impending metaphysical catastrophe – the eschaton, or the End of the World. What we see, however, is that Dan Smith and Rosemary Ellen Guiley are being used to further the agenda of the World Controllers who do, indeed, suspect the “End of the World”, but have their own plans to survive it at the expense of most of the human population.
It is this agenda that Ms. Guiley is now actively promoting in her writings and columns in Fate Magazine, which has become an organ of COINTELPRO, etc. We do notice that Ms. Guiley – like Whitley Strieber and the rest of the gang who play ball with the Matrix Controllers – have NO TROUBLE whatsoever getting “30 books published” and “hobnobbing” with the CIA.
(A) John Mack:
According to Dick Farley – former aide to C.B. Scott Jones – Laurance Rockefeller funneled “$194,000 to Mack’s Harvard- affiliated Center for Psychology and Social Change via the Washington, D.C. chartered Human Potential Foundation, Inc. in the 1993-1994 period.
Mack’s group then started “PEER” (Program for Exceptional Experience Research) and operated an “alien abductee support group” who – among other functions they served – became fodder for Dr. Mack’s 1994 Abductions.
According to Donna Bassett – who infiltrated Mack’s abductee support group – the Center for Psychology and Social Change (co-founded by Robert Jay Lifton) receives $250,000 a year from Rockefeller. Rockefeller also gave $194,000 to PEER along with various other donations. According to Bassett, Mack claims to have received funding from an ex-CIA source.
(B) Kit Green.
Director of General Motor’s Biomedical Research department. Attended closed meetings with Dr. Igor Smirnov under the auspices of his membership in the National Academy of Sciences panel on 21st Century Army Technologies. (Defense Electronics, 7/93. Reprinted in Flatland). Smirnov gave a series of closed meetings in Northern Virginia – starting on 3/17/93 – to the FBI, CIA, DIA, and ARPA concerning Russian developments with a device that allegedly implanted thoughts in a subject’s mind. The FBI was considering using this device to implant the voice of God in David Koresh’s mind, telling him to surrender.
Other, non-intelligence participants included Dr. Richard Nakamura of the National Institute of Health [note: I think he may now be the director]. This technology was supposedly used by the Russians against civilians in Afghanistan and possibly on the Red Army to prepare them for battle. The American rights to this technology is owned by a Richmond, Virginia company called Psycotechnologies Corp. (Defense Electronics, 7/93. Reprinted in Flatland #11)
(C) February 28, beginning of 51-day siege on the Branch Davidians at Waco Texas which ended in the death of more than 80 people. Until this incident, the electromagnetic weapons had kept a very low profile. But in the documentary video “Waco: The Big Lie Continues”, footage from the British Broadcasting (BBC) shows at least 3 EM weapons used by U.S. Government agents. First, the noise generators used against the Davidians. Second, a powerful strobe light, shown during a nighttime sequence. And the third was the Russian psycho-acoustic weapon considered, but agents deny use of this weapon against the Waco people. FBI agents met with Dr. Igor Smirnov in Arlington, VA to discuss the possibility of using the weapon against the Davidians. (from “A Subliminal Dr. Strangelove”, by Dorinda Elliot and John Barry, Newsweek, Aug 22, 1994).
Janet Reno is also publicly connected to John Alexander (e.g., the recent “Non-Lethal Warfare” conference).
See also: The Man Who Knew Too Much – What really happened at Waco? Carlos Ghigliotti thought he had the answer, and now he’s dead. Was he a victim of conspiracy, or his own obsession? Ghigliotti – an expert in thermal imaging – was retained by the House Government Reform Committee last year to probe allegations that FBI agents – despite their vehement assertions to the contrary – had fired their weapons at members of the Branch Davidian sect, trapping helpless women and children inside the burning compound on April 19, 1993. Last fall, I had quoted him in The Post as saying that infrared surveillance tapes – as well as regular videos made by the Media – contained proof that the FBI fired. “The gunfire … is there, without a doubt.”
In March, he was finalizing his report to Congress. He also had been advising attorneys waging a $100 million wrongful death suit against the Government on behalf of the Davidians and their heirs. “I still have a lot of shocking evidence to show you,” he wrote in a March 28 letter to Michael Caddell, the lead attorney in that case.
When his body was discovered, Ghigliotti’s office got the scrutiny that Vince Foster’s warranted after his suicide. Police sealed the premises and carted off computers and files. Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) – whose committee had retained Ghigliotti – called for “a full and thorough investigation.” The Justice Department’s special counsel on Waco – John C. Danforth – asked a federal court to take control of all evidence from Ghigliotti’s firm.
I’d spent hours in that workshop reviewing tapes on his 8-monitor JVC video console, looking for evidence of Government perfidy in grainy images, debating theories while his beloved cats – Simone and Sipowicz – lolled at our feet. Carlos could be exasperating – brusque, inflexible and short-tempered, a fireplug of a guy who carried himself like a street fighter – but he had a soft side. More than once, he admitted to breaking down in tears while examining Waco evidence. Someone had to speak for the dead, he told me that he believed with all his heart that he had finally uncovered the Truth.
“I’ve solved the case,” he announced during one of his calls in March, urging me to come once again to his lab to review videotapes. “I know exactly what happened.”
But I was busy on other stories and never made it back. Now there was one more mystery to unravel: Was Carlos the final victim of Waco?
The Russian government is offering to share with the United States – in a bilateral Center for Psychotechnologies – the Soviet mind-control technology developed during the 1970s. The work was funded by the Department of Psycho-Correction at the Moscow Medical Academy.
“Acoustic psycho-correction involves the transmission of specific commands via static or white noise bands into the human subconscious …” The Russian experts – among them former KGB General George Kotov – present in a paper a list of software and hardware available for $80,000. (From Opal article, “U.S. Explores Russian Mind Control Technology”.)
(D) High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program, HAARP
The HAARP Program is jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy and is based in Gakona, Alaska. It is designed to “understand, simulate, and control ionospheric processes that might alter the performance of communication and surveillance systems”. The HAARP system intends to beam 3.6 Gigawatts of effective radiated power of hig- frequency radio energy into the ionosphere in order to (warning: all of which follows may be disinformation):
● Generate extremely low frequency (ELF) waves for communicating with submerged submarines
● Conduct geophysical probes to identify and characterize natural ionospheric processes so that techniques can be developed to mitigate or control them
● Generate ionospheric lenses to focus large amounts of high frequency energy, thus providing a means of triggering ionospheric processes that potentially could be exploited for Department of Defense purposes
● Electron acceleration for infrared (IR) and other optical emissions which could be used to control radio wave propagation properties
● Generate geomagnetic field aligned ionization to control the reflection/scattering properties of radio waves
● Use oblique heating to produce effects on radio wave propagation, thus broadening the potential military applications of ionospheric enhancement technology

(A) By controlling the nature of the magnetic fields and causing them to simulate brain patterns, Persinger is able to stimulate strong emotions and hallucinations including the illusion of touch and movement. (Blackmore, Susan, “Alien Abduction: The Inside Story”, New Scientist, 11/19/94, pg 29-31.) Persinger is shown demonstrating this device on the British TV show Horizon entitled “Close Encounters”, written-and-narrated by Susan Blackmore. For their efforts, both Persinger and Blackmore have been accused of being in the Aviary.) Persinger was on the board of advisors for the False Memory Syndrome Foundation. Also an informal advisor to SRI’s remote-viewing program.
(B) As of 1994, Smirnov has worked at Moscow’s Institute of Psycho-Correction using subliminal technology as therapy for drug abusers and others. The Institute has been strapped for cash after the fall of the Soviet Union, but it has refused to accept business from the Russian Mafia. (Elliott, Dorinda and Barry, John, “A Subliminal Dr. Strangelove”, Newsweek, 8/22/94, pg 57) However, Smirnov works with the Human Potential Foundation and John Alexander. [note: I’m not sure how Smirnov’s device is supposed to work.
Later reports claim it would work using inaudible, subliminal suggestions (spliced into phone conversations in the case of David Koresh). The device is definitely supposed to make the subject “hear” voices, as the FBI wanted to use Charlton Heston as the voice of God. This is definitely a different strategy from other subliminal techniques which are designed to produce mere suggestions.]
(C) With a technique called “gene tracking,” Dr. Garth Nicolson at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX discovers that many returning Desert Storm veterans are infected with an altered strain of Mycoplasma incognitos – a microbe commonly used in the production of biological weapons. Incorporated into its molecular structure is 40 percent of the HIV protein coat, indicating that it had been man-made.
(D) Senator John D. Rockefeller (D-WV) issues a report revealing that for at least 50 years, the Department of Defense has used hundreds of thousands of military personnel in human experiments and for intentional exposure to dangerous substances. Materials included mustard and nerve gas, ionizing radiation, psychochemicals, hallucinogens, and drugs used during the Gulf War.
(A) James Randi:
“I told an audience at the annual meeting of the American Physical Society about the hilarious claims that Eldon Byrd made in court concerning important projects he’d been working on as a parapsychologist.
One was a wristwatch that would protect the lucky wearer against the deadly effects of hairdryers and electric razors that bombard the brain with those 60-Hertz electrical waves.
The watch would sense the phase of the offending waves and generate an opposing field to protect the subject….
But by far the best laugh of the trial was generated by Byrd when he proudly announced that as a result of reading and believing the book The Secret Life of Plants, he had a project going to train seaweed so that it could warn naval divers of danger.” (Randi Hotline, 3/27/95 )
(B) SAIC – military contractor, located in California. Click here for their home page. [I couldn’t find anything on remote viewing.] SAIC took over the research aspect of the remote-viewing program from SRI when director Ed May and his Cognitive Sciences Laboratory moved there in 1991.
“SAIC – previously indicted on 10 felony fraud counts by the Justice Department relating to its management of a Superfund toxic cleanup site – has several prominent board members. Admiral Bobby Inman, former NSA Director and Deputy Director of the CIA; Melvin Laird, Richard Nixon’s Defense Secretary; and retired General Max Thurman, Commander of the Panama Invasion. Previous board members include Robert Gates, former CIA Director; William Perry, current  Secretary of Defense; and John Deutch, current  CIA Director.”
SAIC owns Network Solutions, Inc. (NSI), which in September, 1995 took over control of Internet Domain Name registration from the National Science Foundation (“Spooks Spook Net Users”, Paranoia, Issue 12, pg 26).
SAIC is also working with non-lethal weapons, but I haven’t heard any details. (Brandt, Daniel, Mind Control and the Secret State). U.S. Government admits that it had offered Japanese war criminals and scientists – who had performed human medical experiments – salaries and immunity from prosecution in exchange for data on biological warfare research.
(C) Dr. Garth Nicolson uncovers evidence that the biological agents used during the Gulf War had been manufactured in Houston, TX and Boca Raton, FL and tested on prisoners in the Texas Department of Corrections.
(A) NIDS established.
At one point, millionaire Robert Bigelow offered to provide funding to the tune of a million dollars for a cooperative research effort of the “Big Three” of ufology – MUFON (Mutual UFO Network), CUFOS (Center for UFO Studies), and FUFOR (Fund for UFO Research). This effort – sometimes referred to as “the Coalition” – fell apart reportedly when Bigelow tried to control the direction of the group. UFO skeptic Philip Klass reportedly accused John Alexander of causing the break-up, although Alexander denies it.
Maccabee has recently worked with the National Institute for Discovery Sciences (NIDS) and probably worked with-or-near Eldon Byrd, as the two both worked at the Naval Surface Weapons Center at the same time.
(B) Courtney Brown, author of Cosmic Voyage, Dutton, 1996. Brown was trained in remote-viewing by Ed Dames and took courses at the Monroe Institute. Brown’s book details his psychic conversations with aliens and repeats allegations similar to those made by Dames, Ingo Swann, Joe McMoneagle, and others. Among them are:
● Martians live among us and seek our help to return home. They live in South America and under the mountain Santa Fe Baldy.
● Brown psychically contacted Jesus, Guru Dev, and Buddha.
● The idea for the “Star Trek” television series was inspired by aliens to get humanity accustomed to the idea of working with alien races in a Federation.
● Specific plot elements of the “Star Trek: Next Generation” series were suggested to someone on the show via an implanted telepathy device.
Many of Dames’ claims concerning the Martians are presented in Brown’s book. But Brown implies that this is the first time any of this has been revealed to the remote-viewers, even though the sessions took place in 1994. Dames made similar claims as early as 1993 (see Stark, Debby, “Talking to Ed Dames”, NM MUFON News, June/July 1993)
Courtney Brown founded the Farsight Institute in 1995. The Institute teaches a Scientific Remote Viewing course called “Farsight Voyager” which costs around $3,000.00. Here’s the Institute’s home page.
(C) Radin is currently working with Joe McMoneagle in a project involved with remote-viewing future technology. (Compuserve On Line Conversation w/ Joe McMoneagle, 1/4/96)
(D) Edgar Mitchell briefed then CIA director George Bush on the activities and results of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (Mitchell, Edgar, The Way of the Explorer, GP Putnam’s Sons, 1996, pg 91).
(E) Department of Defense admits that Desert Storm soldiers were exposed to chemical agents.
(A) In April, 1997, millionaire Robert Bigelow donated $3.7 million dollars to the University of Nevada to found the Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies, which allows students to take undergraduate courses dealing with parapsychology for college credit. These courses are related – though not formally linked – to Dean Radin’s research at the University’s Consciousness Research Laboratory which Bigelow once funded.
Tart is currently teaching at the University of Las Vegas as part of Robert Bigelow’s Bigelow Chair of Consciousness Studies (Patton, Natalie; “UNLV recruits authority in ESP”, Las Vegas Review-Journal, 7/10/97).
(B) 88 members of Congress sign a letter demanding an investigation into bioweapons use and Gulf War Syndrome.
(A) Michael Persinger:
“My research has not been ‘funded by U.S. interests’. All of the money for our human research for the last 30 years has been from my personal income as a professor. The only funding ($10,000) we ever obtained from the U.S. was from the U.S. Navy – thanks to Eldon Byrd – to evaluate the effects of 0.5-Hz rotating magnetic fields upon the degranulation of mast cells in the rat brain. The effect was small but statistically significant.” (Letter to Wes Thomas, 1/6/99)
(B) 2000 Terminal experiments are being carried out on women, babies, and men of all ages.
