The Long and Winding Road
Recently Nexus reported on the Central Intelligence Agency's secret 25 year multi-million dollar mind control program, MKULTRA, and its numerous sub-projects, which included research into every conceivable technique to control the human mind. Tests were conducted on unwitting and poorly informed citizens, prison inmates, and servicemen, using psycho-active drugs, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), psychosurgery, deep sleep therapy, biological agents (i.e. chemical weapons), "harassment substances", brain concussion, stress, electronic brain stimulation (ESB), electronic brain implants, electromagnetic radio frequency energy, and many other techniques. They were applied to subjects in any combination that showed promise for influencing or controlling human behaviour. No stone was left unturned.
It cannot be over-emphasised, the results of mind control experimentation, which has been conducted by a number of so-called "civilised" nations, have led to a new breed of weapons, and those weapons are in use today. They are the weapons of the New world Order and are specifically designed to rob individuals, and even entire nations, of their capacity for freedom of thought.
Basic Techniques for Control
The human brain has often been compared to a computer. Information is fed in, processed, integrated, and a response is then formulated and acted upon. Mind controllers manipulate information in the same manner as a computer programmer manipulates information.
First you control the source, quality and quantity of information fed into the processor, in our case, the brain. Then you control the manner in which the information is processed, in this case, by manipulating states of human consciousness. Induction of states of heightened suggestibility is the most common form of manipulation. Television is an effective and broad reaching device used for this purpose. (The CIA is currently setting up its own 'television channel' which will have the capacity to broadcast from airborne transmitters with sufficient power to interrupt any country's regular broadcasts, and which will no doubt be used for Psychological Warfare). You then monitor your target's response to the "program" and reinforce messages necessary to obtain the desired result. This takes the form of positive or negative feedback. In any other language, this would be known as conditioning.
The mind control weapons of tomorrow are here today. There are devices designed to introduce thoughts into the human mind, devices designed to directly manipulate states of consciousness, (i.e. the mind's processing capability), and devices designed to read the brain wave patterns, or thought, from a distance.
The Secrets of Life
In January 1991 the University of Arizona hosted a conference entitled the 'NATO Advance Research Workshop on Coherent and Emergent Phenomena in Biomolecular Systems'. The conference revealed some fascinating, but frightening, developments in the world of biomolecular systems, a field which encompasses a wide range of disciplines ranging from biomolecular chemistry, nanotechnology, psychoneuroimmunology, to bio-molecular engineering, and a number of other areas related to the study of human consciousness. The organiser and host of the conference, Dr Stuart Hameroff, of the University's College of Medicine, Dept of Anaesthesiology, stated, "The goals of the conference were aimed at understanding the basic mechanisms of life and consciousness." He claimed that NATO were merely the sponsor for the event and that their participation was limited to having a few representatives attending the conference and taking notes.
Hameroff believes that the seat of consciousness may be located in "computer-like cytoskeletal polymers within living cells." Phrased more simply; an individual's consciousness may be located within microscopic structures found inside the nuclei of individual brain cells. These structures appear to communicate via "coherent nanosecond excitations", that is, some form of ultra-short wavelength energy coupling. Hameroff goes on to say, "An idea expressed relevant to life 'Beyond 2000' was that brain cytoskeletal proteins could be prepared in an artificial environment which may be capable of containing cognitive functions.."
"An individual may then be able to transfer his or her consciousness to an artificial environment when their body approached expiration. Obviously this raises many philosophical and sociological implications." [Emphasis added].
If we can even begin to conceive of a technique to remove and store human consciousness in an artificial environment (and possibly transfer to another body?) capable of storing cognitive functions, then nobody should be surprised that control of the mind is possible.
The Technology of Control
One paper that was delivered at the conference stood out for its different attitude toward the developments under discussion. It was in effect a protest, and a chilling warning to the attending scientists about the potential abuses of their research findings. The subject of the paper: Mind Control.
Delivered by private researcher Harlan E. Girard, the paper was entitled "Effects of Gigahertz Radiation on the Human Nervous System: Recent Developments in the Technology of Political Control." It outlines how microwave energy can be, and is being, used to influence and control human behaviour.
In a letter regarding Girard's presentation, Stuart Hameroff states that these "alleged" techniques "utilised nano-second (or faster giga-hertz, microwave, etc.) vibrations, and thus were consistent with the conference theme of consciousness being related to coherent nanosecond excitations in the cyt0-skeleton." The paper itself, however, is far less interesting as science than it is terrifying, if an accurate report on the operational capability of agencies who might be employing such devious and evil technology.
Girard opens the paper by stating, "The United States has developed communications equipment which can make the blind see, the deaf hear and the lame walk. It can relieve the terminally ill of all pain, without the use of any drugs. A man might retain the use of all his faculties up until the day of his death.
This communications equipment depends on a new way of looking at the human brain and neuromuscular system, and gigahertz radiation pulsed at ultra-low frequencies. Some of this equipment is now operational within the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It will never be used to make the blind see and the deaf hear and the lame walk because it is central to the domestic political agenda and foreign policy of James A. Baker and George Herbert Walker Bush.
Domestically the new communications equipment is being used to torture and murder persons who match profiles imagined to be able to screen a given population for terrorists, to torture and murder, to torture and murder citizens who belong to organisations which promote peace and development in Central America, to torture and murder citizens who belong to organisations opposed to the deployment and use of nuclear weapons, and to create a race of slaves called Automatons, or what is popularly called the Manchurian Candidate.
Overseas experimentation is taking place on hostages held by the United States in Canada, Great Britain, Australia, Germany, Finland and France. In addition there has been a long series of bizarre suicides among British computer scientists, all of whom had some connection to the United States Navy.
Considering how recklessly, wantonly and indiscriminately America's new weapons have been used, physicians attending the dead and dying should consider the patient's known political views and associations before making a diagnosis or conducting an autopsy."
Consider the following horrific incidents in the light of what you have just read:
July 1984: Julian Knight, aged 19, no previous criminal record, kills seven people and wounds another 46 in the "Hoddle St. Massacre" in Melbourne. He was carrying 2 rifles and a 12-gauge shotgun. The gunman was arrested by police.
December 1987: Frank Vitkovic, aged 22, no previous criminal record, kills eight people at the Melbourne General Post Office in Queen St., Melbourne. He then jumps 11 stories to his death.
May 1988: Lurie Dann, criminal record unknown, kills one child and wounds five others in a school yard in Winnekta, Illinois. She then commits suicide.
September 1989: Joseph Wesbecker, criminal record unknown, kills eight former co-workers and wounds twelve in the Standard Gravure Building in Luisville, Kentucky. He then commits suicide by turning the gun on himself.
April 1990: Rodney J. Dale, panel-beater aged 27, no previous criminal record, kills one person and wounds 7, firing off a total of 40 rounds on the Gold Coast, Queensland. he was carrying two rifles and was wounded by police.
August 1991: Wade Frankum, aged 33, unemployed, no previous criminal record, kills seven in Strathfield Plaza, Sydney, with a semi-automatic SKK rifle. He then commits suicide by shooting himself in the head. His last words, "I'm sorry."
September 1991: George Henard, aged 35, no previous criminal record, drives his truck through the front window of Luby's Cafetaria in Kileen, Texas. He then kills 23 people, and wounds another 20, in a 10 minute shooting spree with a Glock 9mm semi-automatic pistol. He then commits suicide by shooting himself.
November 1991: Santiago Lopez, aged 42, Mexican, no previous criminal record, is arrested at the United Nations Building in New York carrying a revolver and 100 rounds of ammunition. His intent was to kill.
November 1991: Bradley A. Cooke, chef, aged 32, no previous criminal record, kills one person and wounds another at Airlie Beach, Queensland. Armed with a SKS assault rifle, he then commits suicide by shooting himself.
November 1991: Gang Lu, a Graduate Student with no previous criminal record, kills five people in Iowa City, USA. Armed with a .38 revolver, Lu also commits suicide by shooting himself.
November 1991: Thomas McIlvane, aged 31. Postal worker with no previous criminal record, kills 7 people and wounds seven in Royal Oak, USA. He attempts suicide and is then arrested.
There have been numerous similar incidents in recent years, including at least two multiple-victim massacres in New Zealand, and a recent massacre in South Africa by a gunman. The incident was apparently totally unrelated to any form of racial violence that plagues the country.
So are these individuals really "lone nuts" as the authorities and mainstream media would have us believe? If not, might they have under the influence of some form of mind control?
The Psychology of Terror
Would any government, corporation or psychiatrist wilfully promote such horror today, you ask? the answer is quite obviously YES. Governments agencies, and the corporations that work with them towards the New World Order, are prepared to promote anything that will help them to achieve their objective of total social control. History has demonstrated that to us repeatedly, loudly and clearly. As for the question of why; for one thing, if you terrify the public and make them fear for their safety, they will allow you to implement draconian law enforcement practices, disarm them, and keep extensive records on them, and they only have to tell you that it is in all in order to "protect you", of course. And secondly, it promotes the decay of the current form of democratic political system and leads societies to search for alternatives to current political methodology. Of course the alternative has already been planned. It is called "New World Order", and it won't have your safety or interests at heart. As George Bush would say, "read my lips".
Fear has always been used by powerful elites to control and subjugate the masses. The old maxim "divide and conquer" is being played out to limit in every corner of the planet to ensure that everybody is frightened for their personal safety, and scared or suspicious of those around them. This too, is mind control.
The Unholy Alliance
One of the most common factors amongst people who have committed these types of crimes is that they were being treated with prescription tranquillisers or anti-depressants during the period immediately prior to committing the crime. John Hinkley, Jr, the gunman who attempted to shoot President Ronald Reagan in 1981, had ingested several tablets of Valium only two hours before the assassination attempt. Frank Vitrovik (listed previous page) had been prescribed an anti anxiety agent called Ativan. According to the Mims Drug Compendium, one of the side effects of Ativan is "rage".
Is this planned Mind Control at work? Far fetched you say? Or does it possibly strike you as more than coincidence that George Bush, after stepping aside as Director of Central Intelligence in 1977, was made director of the Eli Lilly Pharmaceutical Company by the father and family of current US Vice-president Dan Quayle, who owned the controlling interest in the company. The Bush family have also been major shareholders in other pharmaceutical companies, including Abbott, Bristol and Pfizer (whom they are thought to still hold shares in).
It is uncanny how often perpetrators of violent crimes have been prescribed tranquillisers or anti-depressants, such as Valium, Librium, Xanax, Halcion or Prozac, before having committed any offences. Other supposed "anti-psychotic" drugs, such as Haloperidol, have shown strong links to the manifestation of violence. Lawsuits have been brought against major pharmaceutical companies in a number of countries for this very reason and there is an enormous amount of evidence to support the argument that these drugs cause violent behaviour and are not an effective treatment for it.
Eli Lilly are the manufacturers of the controversial anti-depressant Prozac 20, which was being taken by over two million Americans by 1989. The prescription information on Prozac states that the drug can generate "hostility, psychosis, hallucinations, and akathisia", a bizarre side effect that induces patients to commit extreme acts of violence. It sounds like a very strange thing to prescribe a drug that can generate these side effects to a patient who is suffering from depression. Two lawsuits had been brought against Eli Lilly by 1990 in which the side effects of Prozac were thought to have been contributing factors (multiple murder suicide cases).
The author of 'The Encyclopaedia of Modern Murder', published in 1983, observed that senseless and violent crime has only become a major problem in the last three decades. In the introduction to the book, he writes, "We call a crime motiveless if it seems to do no one any good. Before 1960 such crimes were rare, and the few that occurred belong to the end of the decade." Would it be unreasonable to suggest that modern pharmaceuticals and ineffectual psychiatric practices may have some connection to this rise in senseless crime?
Many researchers believe that a large number of individuals in the mental health field are promoting such incidents, and are working hand in hand with pharmaceutical companies and governments to bring a New World Order in which societies are controlled with pharmaceuticals, or should that be chemical weapons?
Consider this quote from psychologist James V. Mc Connell, which was published in a 1970 issue of Psychology Today. "The day has come hen we can combine sensory deprivation with drugs, hypnosis, and astute manipulation of reward and punishment, to gain almost absolute control over an individual's behaviour. It should then be possible to achieve a very rapid and highly effective type of brainwashing that would allow us to make dramatic changes in a person's behaviour and personality... We should reshape society so that we all would be trained from birth to want to do what society wants us to do. We have the techniques to do it... no-one owns his own personality you acquired , and there's no reason to believe you should have the right to refuse to acquire a new personality if your old one is anti-social."
It is worth noting at this point that Dr Ewan Cameron, who conducted extensive mind-control research under the MKULTRA program for the CIA at the Allan Memorial Institute of McGill University, in Montreal, Canada, was at various times President of the American Psychiatric Association, and the World Association of Psychiatrists. Cameron's research (which was covered extensively in the Jan/Feb and March/April issues of Nexus) formed the basis of Dr. Harry Bailey's infamous "Deep Sleep Therapy", which was conducted between 1963 and 1979 at the Chelmsford private hospital in Sydney, and led to the deaths of over 20 patients. Cameron's research followed in the footsteps of English psychiatrist William Sargant, whom he considered to be Britain's leading expert on communist methods of eliciting confessions.
The Devils Devil
Manipulation through psychiatry has long played a pivotal role in helping achieve the New World Order's plan for world domination assisted by mind control. Harlan Girard, alleges that it is Dr Louis Jolyon ("Jolly") West, Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California at Los Angeles, and director of its Neuropsychiatric Institute, who co-ordinates the United States
government's covert mind control program. Girard is not the first, or only, person to make this claim.
West, who conducted extensive research on Korean "Brainwashing" of American POW's, ran a CIA funded LSD research program in the early 60's whilst at the University of Oklahoma. During this period he earned the dubious honour of being the only man ever to administer LSD to an elephant, an incident which took place at the Oklahoma State City Zoo. The elephant subsequently died. he participated in the 1965 International Congress on Hallucinogenic Drugs, which was run by CIA funded psychiatrists. During this congress, it was proposed that Ministers of Religion be "trained" whilst under the influence of LSD. West is also a renowned anti-religionist, and has made large amounts of money testifying against religions in US courts.
His greatest period of public infamy began on January 11th, 1973, when he announced during his annual "State of the Sate" speech, the formation of a multidisciplinary Centre for the Study and Reduction of Violence. Reagan stated, "This centre will explore all types of violent behaviour, what causes it, how it may be detected, prevented, controlled, and treated." The director of the centre was to be none other than Dr Louis Jolyon West. The plans for the proposed centre were intentionally vague, and jealously guarded, in public at least. Eventually photocopied details leaked out which outlined the centre's proposed programs, which included genetic, biochemical , and neurophysiological studies of violent individuals, including prisoners and "hyperkinetic children", experiments in "the pharmacology of violence-producing and violence-inhibiting drugs"; studies of "life-threatening behaviour during the menstrual cycle"; studies on "hormonal aspects of passivity and aggressiveness in boys"; surveys "to discover and compare norms of violence among various ethnic groups"; and most ominously, the development of tests "that might permit the detection of violence pre-disposing brain disorders prior to the occurrence of a violent episode." The implementation of the plans was to have included "large scale screening" to detect "violence predisposing brain disorders."
West was also keen to try out the "Schwitzgebel Machine", which involved "implanting tiny electrodes within the brain", connecting them to radio transceivers, and manipulating individuals by remote control. Modified missile tracking devices were to be used to monitor the subjects whereabouts. Governor Reagan was keen to implement West's proposals, but met with resistance on a number of fronts. Pressure to veto the proposal increased when the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Constitutional Rights, Senator Frank Ervin commissioned a study of federal involvement in a number of new mind manipulation technologies. When Ervin acquired a letter penned by West, (dated January 22, 1973), to Californian State Director of Health, suggesting that the military may be prepared to turn over a Nike-missile base, located in the Santa Monica Hills, for use as a research facility, considerable suspicion was aroused.
Promoters of the Violence Research Centre could only offer lame explanations regarding the proposed purpose of the facility to the Californian Senate. Not only that, West had never fully defined what constituted "undesirable behaviour", or why it was necessary to work inside a "securely fenced" missile silo. Eventually, the entire proposal came under attack and was quietly dropped. Or was it merely driven underground?
Governor Reagan's support for the concept of behaviour control programs (read: mind control) was not deterred by this incident, and it is almost a certainty that life was breathed into many covert mind control projects of this type once he was elected president. There is every reason to suspect Dr Louis Jolyon West as being a leader in the field of mind control. He's been perfecting his mind control techniques on human subjects for a long time. A CIA memorandum entitled "Interrogation Techniques", dated January 14th, 1953, includes the following passage:
"If the services of Major Louis J. West, USAF (MC), a trained hypnotist, can be obtained, and another man well grounded in conventional psychological interrogation and polygraph techniques, and the services of Lt. Col [deleted], a well-balanced interrogation research centre could be established in an especially selected location."
The CIA proposed that: "This laboratory will include a special chamber, in which all physiologically significant aspects of the environment can be controlled. This chamber will contain, among other things, a broad-spectrum polygraph for simultaneous recordings of a variety of physiological reactions of the individual being studied. In this setting various hypnotic, pharmacologic, and sensory-environmental variables will be manipulated in a controlled fashion and quantitative continuous recordings of the reactions of the experimental subjects will be made."
Aldous Huxley, author of the novel, Brave New World, referred to West in his writing on several occasions. In 1957 he wrote that West has been doing research with hypnosis and mescaline. Later, in 1961 he reported that West had informed him he was now experimenting with sensory deprivation and had some of the best equipped facilities available. Knowledge derived from these monstrous projects, as well as many thousands of others, is being applied to mind control operations today.
Unidentified Flying Mind Control
It is worth noting that one of Louis Jolyon West's proteges, Barry Taff, co-wrote an article for UFO magazine suggesting aliens were responsible for this type of activity. Taff worked at the UCLA Neuropsychiatric Institute, and according to Los Angeles based researcher Martin Cannon, has consulted for a large number of government agencies, including the National Institute of Mental Health, Rand Corporation, The Atomic Energy Commission and the CIA The article was entitled Paranormal Phenomena and UFOs, and appeared in UFO, Vol 2 No 4.
Cannon has documented a long list of parallels between supposed Alien Abduction Phenomena and documented mind control experimentation, in a thoroughly researched and impeccably referenced 60-page (approx) paper entitled, The Controllers: A New Hypothesis of Alien Abductions. A condensed version of this paper was published in the October 1990 edition of the MUFON UFO Journal. It left me questioning the entire basis of the UFO phenomena. Might it be the largest mind control project ever? I suggest you examine the evidence carefully before you disregard the possibility.
Incidentally, UFO magazine editor, Vicki Cooper, is the niece of Grant Cooper, who was Sirhan Sirhan's attorney after he allegedly assassinated Robert Kennedy. Theodore Charach's film The Second Gun includes an interview with Sirhan's mother in which she curses her son's attorneys. There is much evidence that Sirhan Sirhan was a victim of mind control.
Did I do that?
Dr Leonard Diamond, director for the defence at the trial of Sirhan Sirhan, was extremely surprised when he first placed Sirhan under hypnosis. He noted that the ease with which he entered a deep hypnotic state clearly suggested he had been hypnotised before. Diamond questioned Sirhan, whilst in the hypnotic state, and asked him to write down the answers to his questions, and noted, "Sirhan would act like a robot and keep on repeating a word or a phrase until I stopped him." He showed Sirhan a sample page from his own diary, asking, "Is this crazy writing?", "YES, YES, YES" wrote Sirhan "Are you crazy" asked Diamond. "NO NO" Sirham replied. "Well, why are you writing crazy?" Diamond asked. "PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE" came the reply. "Practice for what?" Diamond questioned. "MIND CONTROL MIND CONTROL MIND CONTROL" is what Sirhan wrote.
Sirhan was given a psychological stress evaluation test by a US intelligence officer, seven years after Kennedy's assassination. he has since been quoted as saying, "Everything in the PSE charts tells me that someone else was involved in the assassination and that Sirhan was programmed through hypnosis to kill R.F.K."
British lawyer Fenton Bressler believes that Mark David Chapman, who won international notoriety for shooting John Lennon on December 8, 1980, was also a programmed assassin. In his book Who Killed John Lennon? Bressler argues the case very convincingly. He contends that Chapman came into contact with the CIA whilst working for the YMCA, an organisation which is reported to have acted as a front for the CIA in many foreign countries. Chapman chose to do work for the YMCA in Beirut, of all places, a city rumoured to be the site of a CIA training camp for assassins. Witnesses to the shooting stated that Chapman assumed something akin to a "combat" position just before pulling the trigger, and the first reaction of the arresting detective, Arthur O'Connor, was that Chapman appeared to be "dazed" and "looked as if he could have been programmed."
