Pentagon Researching Human Fear Chemicals

Well I guess this was inevitable. After remote viewing, the "gay bomb," and chipped soldier/bots, Pentagon research into the chemical compounds (pheremones) that humans release when in fear seems inevitable.

Here is the article, from

Some important excerpts:

Some have suggested that the human alarm pheromone could lead to chemical fear-sensors. The project Integrated System for Emotional State Recognition for the Enhancement of Human Performance and Detection of Criminal Intent (do they call it ISESREHPDCI for short?) specifically mentions the possibility of monitoring pheromone levels:

"Such systems could be used to assess fitness for duty, integrated into closed loop systems regulating user vigilance and workload, or used to detect the sinister intent of individuals and prompt pre-emptive interdictions. These systems could unobtrusively monitor individuals within military operational environments or crowded civilian settings by relying on passive detection."


But what about offensive use? Pheromones are effective in minute quantities, so a wide area can be blanketed with just a few liters. Given sufficient concentration, would everyone exposed start suffering from an unidentifiable dread? The contagious aspect means that those affected would start churning out fear pheromone as well.

For more information about pheremones, which are powerful chemical compounds released by animals to regulate intra-species interaction--from moths finding mates to the well-known effect of women in college dorms regularizing their menstrual cycles, see this Wiki article.

What we need is a Xanax spray. Nobody would want to fight. Just listen to music and eat.

Reminds me of Batman Begins
Such an awesome film. Using fear to create chaos on the streets? To inforce a Police State?
Could be used in many ways!
