so in other words, Scientists have confirmed the validity of the DARPA mind control program 


Call me crazy, but I believe they have been working on this for a long time, and have actually been using it. It may explain the increased number of military classified suicides, PTSD and clinical depression veterans.

Maybe they have taken to playing with our minds to another level.





I think you may be right, but not just military, maybe it is the mark of the beast.

Whats more disturbing is the fact that so many people no this thread are advocating using this on people they dont agree with.....

Proving more and more that you arent actually allowed to have a different opinion in this country, with out people making an enemy out of you, or wanting you silenced.....

Thats the REAL problem in this country, not the opinions themselves.....

Civil Discourse is dead, narcissism and absolutes reign supreme

This isn't turning off, or damaging a brain. People are misinterpreting what is taking place.

Everyone's psyche runs in circuits. We're all wired differently. You put 100 people in a room, expose them to the same stimuli, and the way people's psyche's light up will be different from one to the next. You could perhaps group some into similarities, but with some degree of precision you'd have to agree that we're all firing differently.

Saying this is turning off, or damaging a brain would be like saying calming the prefrontal cortex of people with OCD with neurocognitive feedback is damaging or turning off their brain. That's not happening. You are causing the brain to shift it's activation from one intensity level in a particular brain region under specific conditions to another level of intensity.

That's it.

The only thing you could gather from this is what we already knew... that structure supports function, and flow enables it.

I tried to read the book Cell by Stephen King, but I couldn't, something about it rang true.

Several times on the forum I said it's the cell phones causing problems with peoples minds.

This morning I read three babies had been thrown from apartment windows this month by their mothers,




Cell is an apocalyptic horror novel published by American author Stephen King in 2006. The story follows a New England artist struggling to reunite with his young son after a mysterious signal broadcast over the global cell phone network turns the majority of his fellow humans into mindless vicious animals.

What ends up happening, with prolonged exposure, is the formation of neural pathways in a predictable fashion.

As was mentioned earlier in the thread, as well as by you, this will affect different people differently. But, the margin of difference narrows over time.

What is "telling" is what they are focused on changing, publicly. To the keen mind, there is a possible relation between their focus, and the behaviors of the burgeoning "social justice warrior" demographic. Including using language to manipulate behavior and perception.

In that, perhaps the focus isn't actually specific thought content, but the behavior that is used when people interact socially on any given topic.

There are many liberal Christians, people always seem to forget that the majority of Jews, Hispanics, Muslims, and blacks vote democrat but many are conservative.

One size does not fit all.

I think these are are just the beginning signs of what is in our future. I think with the amount of time that we as a society, are spending with devices vs the amount of time we actually spend interacting with each other, one on one, is slowly and insidiously changing our minds, our bodies and our society.

I have spoken of these signs in many threads, including one of my own. I think we are turning a blind eye and a deaf ear, to one of the things that will change us more than we want to admit. We can see what it is doing to us. Do we dare look at what it is doing to our children.

It is a horrifying thought isn't it?

Yet I know for a fact that even usually smart, and loving parents, not only will not take these deceives from their children, they will fight against it.

Seeing a rise in sexual assault cases ranging from the tweens to the college age child recently, due to indiscriminate use of their smart phones, it shocked me beyond measure, when I suggested that children and teens did not need a smart phone, and that the parents should restrict their internet usage to the home or some other safer environment. I added that if a child absolutely needed a cell phone a plain call and receive phone would work for the purpose. I barely made it out with my head.

You can't put that genie back in the bottle. People are not going to give up their smart devices. That is something they have quite successfully wired our brains to, and I don't see anything less then an EMP, ever coming between the people and their smart phones. I bet even then they will be selling their most cherished possessions, for a charge and a WiFi connection.

And just for the record, I do not have a cell phone. I will admit it has been awkward on occasion; only because people look at you like you have 5 heads, when you tell them you don't own a cell phone. I don't dare tell them the real reason I don't have one. No one believes you can live in the grand USA and not be able to get a cell phone signal. Surprise!

Perhaps, as with so many things, the issue isn't necessarily the tools themselves, but how we use them.

When all of our time is spent battling over ideological moral constructs applied to inanimate objects, there is little time left over to consciously approach the situation and see if there is a more beneficial course of action beyond just acceptance or rejection.

This applies to both those who might abuse technology to control, as well as those who might be manipulated.

You are quite correct, and there can be no action taken, when the manipulated are oblivious to the situation.

So they are unable to consciously approach the situation, and see if there is a more beneficial course of action, beyond just acceptance or rejection.

This is indeed where the real problem lies. For some they don't believe they are affected, perhaps for others, but not for them. For some they see no other way.

You see, it has become a problem of acceptance.

Yep, I had linked this story on a thread a few days ago as it is very similar to toxoplasmosis. Funny if you disable parts of people's brains, they loose common sense


Idiots are rejoicing as they see electronic lobotomies as a good thing!

Then I have to ask, when did they start the process? Commonsense it not very common anymore. In fact it is now quite rare.

What is wrong, it clearly states that they "shut down" parts of the brain responsible for identifying and responding to threats.

Pretty clear.

Kind of a milder version of the shock treatments in "one flew over the cuckoo's nest"

No, that's not what the experiment is doing. There is no "shutting down". There is a lessening of intensity in activation to a particular brain region.

These are not the same.



"As expected, we found that when we experimentally turned down the posterior medial frontal cortex, people were less inclined to reach for comforting religious ideas despite having been reminded of death."


There is no individual alive who has their brain revved up in all brain regions. Our brains run in complex circuits that activate particular brain regions to various degrees depending on the stimuli provided.

This is so much more complex than you're making it out to be. The statements are ignorant.

Read:

www.thedailybeast.com...



When researchers used magnetic energy to shut down the brain’s threat perception, nearly a third of patients were more tolerant to immigrants. More said they didn’t believe in God.

These researchers sought to do the opposite—to temporarily disable one part of the brain (the part that responds to threats) and measure its effect on beliefs and prejudices connected to them.

Testing the effect of shutting down the part of the brain that forms judgments based on threats required first presenting threats. After receiving their respective doses of TMS, participants were asked to respond to questions about their own death. Previous studies have shown the threat of death is capable of directly affecting a person’s belief in religion. Therefore, shutting down the part of the brain that registers this threat—they theorized—would reduce the need to believe in God.

In both cases, their predictions rang true. In the participants whose pMFC was temporarily shut down, 32.8 percent fewer expressed belief in God, angels, or heaven. Some 28.5 percent more displayed a positive response toward the immigrant who was critical of America, compared with the control group.

When we disrupted the brain region that usually helps detect and respond to threats, we saw a less negative, less ideologically motivated reaction to the critical author and his opinions.”
