These results confirm that, indeed, the nervous system of a subject can be manipulated through electromagnetic field pulses emitted by a nearby CRT or LCD monitor which displays images with pulsed intensity.
The various implementations of the invention are adapted to the different sources of video stream, such as video tape, DVD, a computer program, or a TV broadcast through free space or cable. In all of these implementations, the subject is exposed to the pulsed electromagnetic field that is generated by the monitor as the result of image intensity pulsing. Certain cutaneous nerves of the subject exhibit spontaneous spiking in patterns which, although rather random, contain sensory information at least in the form of average frequency. Some of these nerves have receptors that respond to the field stimulation by changing their average spiking frequency, so that the spiking patterns of these nerves acquire a frequency modulation, which is conveyed to the brain. The modulation can be particularly effective if it has a frequency at or near a sensory resonance frequency. Such frequencies are expected to lie in the range from 0.1 to 15 Hz.
Certain monitors can emit electromagnetic field pulses that excite a sensory resonance in a nearby subject, through image pulses that are so weak as to be subliminal. This is unfortunate since it opens a way for mischievous application of the invention, whereby people are exposed unknowingly to manipulation of their nervous systems for someone else's purposes. Such application would be unethical and is of course not advocated. It is mentioned here in order to alert the public to the possibility of covert abuse that may occur while being online, or while watching TV, a video, or a DVD.

Jeez, this rings true. An acquaintance of mine was an electronics specialist in the Army. Back in late 70's he spoke of a system that he was working on that would sweep a field of cows and they would all, immediately start pooping themselves, literally "sh!tless. Imagine facing an enemy with full skivvies? Now that's fighting dirty !!
ABSTRACT -1- A novel associative memory is discussed which overcomes the early saturation problem of Hopfield memories, without resorting to dilute state vectors or nonlocal learning rules.
The memory uses a Bidirectional Linear Transformer (BLT) which transfers the bipolar input vector x into a vector u, which is a lin[xxx] combination of Hadamard vectors. The matrix of the BLT is of Hebbian form, equal to the sum of outer products of stored vectors "q^ and Hadamard vectors h .
