An apt quote indeed.
I'm surprised that this thread essentially has been responded to with that of nonchalance....I think that, though the voracity of the document could
be argued as valid in the context of a business setting (OTS), it could very well be a relevant source of information. The grammatical and spelling
errors tend to discredit the source, but how many of us have composed a post that we wished to be taken seriously, only to re-read later and discover
our own errors...I have many a time and know the sinking feeling I get that corresponds with realizing that the 'edit' option has long since
I googled the address listed at the top of the page and found several interesting quotes and bits of information that tend to support this
The uninformed may think this sounds like science fiction but in the May 17, 1965 issue of the NEW YORK TIMES, Dr. Delgado had reportedly successfully
connected electronic implants to the motor nervous system of a bull and could stop the charging bull in its tracks by radio control. In another report
Dr. Delgado had surgically implanted a cat with an electronic implant which could transmit everything the cat was seeing and hearing to a nearby TV
monitor. Who would ever suspect the cat was a "surveillance bug"?
The above occurance was reported in the New York Times
. Now, there is much issue to be taken with the bias of media, especially rags such as
the New York Times. But bias usually presents itself in how
a story is presented...not the factual components of a story. It should also be
noted that Dr. Delgado is on record as believing that, paraphrased, people should not be in charge of their own minds.
Ronald Kane, Vice President of CUBIC Corp., a major manufacturer of implantable chips, while remarking on the chips profitability, has said, "If we
had our way, we'd implant a chip behind everyone's ear in the maternity ward".
I'm curious about this quote. I kind of wonder if CUBIC Corp. still exists; I'll do some hunting. But we now have two companies involved with the
R & D and production of these chips. As references go up and more people seem to be involved, the probability for a fallacious story fall.
I submit that there is enough information in the document to research further the voracity of said document. Rather than react to the information via
opinion, why not take some of the snippets and attempt to find suupporting data? For Example...
Universal side effects in all 8 test subjects revealed that when implant was set to 116 MHz all subjects became lethargic and slept an average of
18-22 hours per day.
Could this be a true statement? There has to be another case study that will help us to determine whether or not this is true. Again, I will attempt
to locate supporting data by which to offer an implicit proof.
Each subject had no knowledge of the implant for the test period and each implant was retrieved under the guise of medical treatment.
This quote disturbs me if true. An extraction of a neural implant may result in some type of brain damage, as even in two months, the brain will have
started to repair itself and ultimately incorporate the implant. I would think that this would not be the case....

And I wouldn't be surprised if there are devices which can be outside-controlled rather than operating by feedback loops (althought the latter
approach makes a lot more sense).
Could you please distinguish the difference between 'outside-controlled' and 'feedback loop'. I don't quite understand...
I'm going to see what else is out there on the net. There are avenues to pursue regarding this document and I would be interested in learning more.
After all, this could be the wave of the future....
Edit to include...
They still exist; this is their current news:
Cubic Wins $50.3 Million Contract to Provide Embedded Air Combat Training System for the Joint Strike Fighter.
An interesting quote, though not substantial for our context:
For more than four decades, Cubic has provided world-class radio communications, surveillance and direction-finding systems to intelligence/military
I'm going to wade through some more stuff...
