Ethics For COINTELPRO Criminals #4

Mind Reading Technologies  

Chapter 2 of Social Exclusion and the Way Out begins with discussion about the relations between mind and body, and then moves on to discussion of the relations between mind and brain based on the latest scientific discoveries (Bonner, 2006). The author refers to a significant contribution to the study of memory by brain science. As a matter of fact, the recent technologies can search a person’s memory by monitoring brain activities. For example, when an experimenter shows an object to a subject, a machine can detect if the object is what his or her brain has seen before. This function is called brain-print, and is planned to be used for the criminal justice field.
    Furthermore, chapter 2 of Social Exclusion and the Way Out dipicts brief history of the rapid advances in neuroscience during the last two decades (Bonner, 2006, p. 21). The author seems to be trying to analyze from neuroscientific perspectives why social exclusion occurs (p.27).  I admire the author’s sinserity to try to use mind-reading technologies for alleviating socially weak people’s sufferings. Nevertheless, not all scientists work with such an altruistic intention – some of the scientists have monopolized the mind-reading technologies for their self-interests.

   Lo and behold, the technology to catch human brainwaves and analyze the thoughts was already developed as early as in 1970’s. The following is the patent document of, so to speak, “mind-reading / mind-control” which was oficially  called “Apparatus and method for remotely monitoring and altering brain waves.”

Inventor: Robert G. Malech
Patent number: 3951134
Filing date: Aug 5, 1974
Issue date: Apr 20, 1976

Abstract: Apparatus for and method of sensing brain waves at a position remote from a subject whereby electromagnetic signals of different frequencies are simultaneously transmitted to the brain of the subject in which the signals interfere with one another to yield a waveform which is modulated by the subject's brain waves. The interference waveform which is representative of the brain wave activity is re-transmitted by the brain to a receiver where it is demodulated and amplified. The demodulated waveform is then displayed for visual viewing and routed to a computer for further processing and analysis…

The major reason why most of us are ignorant to such an innovative technology alredy existing is because the government has kept these technologies secret in order to use them as secret weapons. As is often the case with unclassified weapons, the researchers secretly tested those machines on subjects without having informed consent. Many victims tried to make them public to accuse illegal operations. Concerning the atrocities of secret human experiments of mind-reading machines, we can access abundant information from the victims all over the world on the Internet. However, their claims have been rejected systematically by law enforcement, and they were automatically diagnosed as dillusion of schizophrenia by psychiatrists (Kilde, 1999).
    Suffering from unbearable distress, reportedly some of the victims have committed suicide. One of the non-profitable organizations for electric harassment victims, Technology Hanzai Higai Network, has witnessed more than seven victims who died from suicide over the last four years in Tokyo. According to the representative, Terukatsu Ishibashi (2012), every year over 8,000 people with mental disorders die from suicide in Japan, and many of them are allegedly victims of organized stalking / electric harassment. I heard some people say that this number is not so big compared to the entire population of the country. However, if several thousands of casualities every year was "small," the number of victims in Sep. 11th should be considered as even "smaller."

  Nevertheless, in March, 2011, the Obama administration finally held a public hearing to listen the information from the victims directly. The participants who testimonied the atrocities include a famous psychiatrist, an ex-military person, a mayor candidate, and so on. The name of this committie is “The U.S. Presidential Commission for Bioethical Issues” (2011), and the report on this public hearing is available at the U.S. government’s official website.
