CONTROL WITH SILENT SOUNDS
AND SUPER COMPUTERS
The mind-altering mechanism is based on a subliminal carrier technology:
the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS), sometimes called "S-quad"
or "Squad". It was developed by Dr Oliver Lowery of Norcross, Georgia,
and is described in US Patent #5,159,703, "Silent Subliminal Presentation
System", dated October 27, 1992. The abstract for the patent reads:
"A silent communications system in which nonaural carriers, in
the very low or very high audio-frequency range or in the adjacent
ultrasonic frequency spectrum are amplitude- or frequency-modulated
with the desired intelligence and propagated acoustically or vibrationally,
for inducement into the brain, typically through the use of loudspeakers,
earphones, or piezoelectric transducers. The modulated carriers
may be transmitted directly in real time or may be conveniently
recorded and stored on mechanical, magnetic, or optical media for
delayed or repeated transmission to the listener."
According to literature by Silent Sounds, Inc., it is now possible,
using supercomputers, to analyse human emotional EEG patterns and
replicate them, then store these "emotion signature clusters" on
another computer and, at will, "silently induce and change the emotional
state in a human being".
Silent Sounds, Inc. states that it is interested only in positive
emotions, but the military is not so limited. That this is a US
Department of Defense project is obvious.
Edward Tilton, President of Silent Sounds, Inc., says this about
S-quad in a letter dated December 13, 1996:
"All schematics, however, have been classified by the US Government
and we are not allowed to reveal the exact details... ... we make
tapes and CDs for the German Government, even the former Soviet
Union countries! All with the permission of the US State Department,
of course... The system was used throughout Operation Desert Storm
(Iraq) quite successfully."
The graphic illustration, "Induced Alpha to Theta Biofeedback
Cluster Movement", which accompanies the literature, is labelled
#AB 116-394-95 UNCLASSIFIED" and is an output from "the world's
most versatile and most sensitive electroencephalograph (EEG) machine".
It has a gain capability of 200,000, as compared to other EEG machines
in use which have gain capability of approximately 50,000. It is
software-driven by the "fastest of computers" using a noisenulling
technology similar to that used by nuclear submarines for detecting
small objects underwater at extreme range.
The purpose of all this high technology is to plot and display
a moving cluster of periodic brainwave signals. The illustration
shows an EEG display from a single individual, taken of left and
right hemispheres simultaneously. Ile readout from the two sides
of the brain appear to be quite different, but in fact are the same
(discounting normal leftright brain variations).
CLONING THE EMOTIONS
By using these computer-enhanced EEGs, scientists can identify
and isolate the brain's low-amplitude "emotion signature clusters",
synthesise them and store them on another computer. In other words,
by studying the subtle characteristic brainwave patterns that occur
when a subject experiences a particular emotion, scientists have
been able to identify the concomitant brainwave pattern and can
now duplicate it. "These clusters are then placed on the Silent
Sound® carrier frequencies and will silently trigger the occurrence
of the same basic emotion in another human being!"
SYSTEM DELIVERY AND APPLICATIONS
There is a lot more involved here than a simple subliminal sound
system. There are numerous patented technologies which can be piggybacked
individually or collectively onto a carrier frequency to elicit
all kinds of effects.
There appear to be two methods of delivery with the system. One
is direct microwave induction into the brain of the subject, limited
to short-range operations. The other, as described above, utilises
ordinary radio and television carrier frequencies.
Far from necessarily being used as a weapon against a person,
the system does have limitless positive applications. However, the
fact that the sounds are subliminal makes them virtually undetectable
and possibly dangerous to the general public.
In more conventional use, the Silent Sounds Subliminal System
might utilise voice commands, e.g., as an adjunct to security systems.
Beneath the musical broadcast that you hear in stores and shopping
malls may be a hidden message which exhorts against shoplifting.
And while voice commands alone are powerful, when the subliminal
presentation system carries cloned emotional signatures, the result
Free-market uses for this technology are the common self-help
tapes; positive affirmation, relaxation and meditation tapes; as
well as methods to increase learning capabilities.
In a medical context, these systems can be used to great advantage
to treat psychiatric and psychosomatic problems. As a system for
remediating the profoundly deaf, it is unequalled. (Promises, promises.
This is the most common positive use touted for this technology
over the past 30 years. But the deaf are still deaf, and the military
now has a weapon to use on unsuspecting people with perfectly normal
In fact, the US Government has denied or refused to comment on
mindaltering weapons for years. Only last year, US News & World
Report ran an article titled "Wonder Weapons", basically a review
of the new so-called 'non-lethal' or 'less-than -lethal' weapons.'
Not one word about S-quad, although the technology had been used
six years earlier!
Excerpts from the article read:
"Says Charles Bernard, a former Navy weapons-research director:
'I have yet to see one of these ray-gun things that actually works."
"DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) has come to
us every few years to see if there are ways to incapacitate the
central nervous system remotely,' Dr F. Terry Hambrecht, head of
the Neural Prostheses Program at NIH, told US News, 'but nothing
has ever come of if,' he said. 'That is too science-fiction and
It may sound "science fiction and far-fetched" but it is not.
However, that is just what the powers-that-be want you to believe,
so as to leave them alone in their relentless pursuit of... what?
The idea behind non-lethal weapons is to incapacitate the enemy
without actually killing them, or, in the case of riot control or
hostage situations, to disable the participants without permanent
injury, preferably without their knowing it. The electromagnetic
mind-altering technologies would all fall into this class of weapons,
but since they are all officially non-existent, who is to decide
when and where they will be used?
And why should selected companies in the entertainment industry
reportedly be allowed access to this technology when the very fact
of its existence is denied to the general public?
As recently as last month [February], this stonewall approach
of total denial or silence on the subject still held fast, even
toward committees of the US Congress!
The Joint Economics Committee, chaired by Jim Saxton (R-NJ), convened
on February 25, 1998 for the "Hearing on Radio Frequency Weapons
and Proliferation: Potential Impact on the Economy". Invited testimony
included statements by several authorities from the military:
Dr Alan Kehs, of the US Army Laboratories, discussed the overall
Mr James O'Bryon, Deputy Director of Operational Testing and
Director of live fire testing for the Office of Secretary of Defense
at the Pentagon, discussed the role of Live Fire Testing and how
it plays a role in testing military equipment with RF weapons.
Mr David Schriner, Principal Engineer of Directed Energy Studies
with Electronic Warfare Associates and recently retired as an
engineer with a naval weapons testing facility, talked about the
difficulty in building an RF weapon and about the terrorist threat.
Dr Ira Merritt, Chief of Concepts Identification and Applications
Analysis Division, Advanced Technology Directorate, Missile Defense
and Space Technology Center, Huntsville, Alabama, discussed the
proliferation of RF weapons primarily from the former Soviet Union.
Although these statements gave information of technical interest,
they are perhaps more important for the information they did not
give: information on the existence of radiofrequency weapons that
directly affect the human brain and nervous system.
This technology did not spring up overnight. It has a long history
of development and denials of development-by the US Government and
probably half of the other governments of the world as well.
We know that the former Soviet Union was actively engaged in this
type of research. In a previous article we reported that during
the 1970s the Soviet KGB developed a Psychotronic Influence System
(PIS) that was used to turn soldiers into programmable 'human weapons'.
The system employed a combination of highfrequency radiowaves and
hypnosis. The PIS project was begun in response to a similar training
scheme launched in the US by President Carter, according to Yuri
Malin, former security adviser to USSR President Gorbachev.
In my Electromagnetic Weapons Timeline I covered a period of 60
years of interest and development in EM weaponsormation gathered
from the many articles and news clippings sent in by readers of
Resonance. In my article on synthetic telepathy I traced the development
of the 'voice in your head' technology dating back to 1961, all
my references coming from the open scientific literature.
POWER OF THE MILITARY-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX
Jan Wiesemann has written an apt description of the situation
which now exists in the United States, about the 'forces that be'
and how the situation came about:
"During the Cold War the United States not only engaged in a relatively
open nuclear arms race with the Soviet Union, but also engaged in
a secret race developing unconventional weapons. As the intelligence
agencies (which prior to the Second World War had merely played
a supporting role within the government) continued to increase their
power, so did the funds spent on developing techniques designed
to outsmart each other.
"And as the US intelligence community began to grow, a secret
culture sprang about which enabled the intelligence players to implement
the various developed techniques to cleverly circumvent the democratic
processes and institutions...
"Like many other democracies, the US Government is made up of
two basic parts the elected constituency, i.e., the various governors,
judges, congressmen and the President; and the unelected bureaucracies,
as represented by the numerous federal agencies.
"In a well-balanced and correctly functioning democracy, the elected
part of the government is in charge of its unelected bureaucratic
part, giving the people a real voice in the agenda set by their
"While a significant part of the US Government no doubt follows
this democratic principle, a considerable portion of the US Government
operates in complete secrecy and follows its own unaccountable agenda
which, unacknowledged, very often is quite different from the public
Jan goes on to quote one of the United States' most popular war
heroes: Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served as Supreme Commander of
Allied Forces during World War II and was later elected 34th President
of the United States. In his farewell address to the nation in 1961,
President Eisenhower said:
"...we have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry
of vast proportions. Added to this, three and a half million men
and women are directly engaged in the defence establishment. We
annually spend on military security more than the net income of
all United States corporations.
"This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large
arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence-economic,
political, even spiritual-is felt in every city, every state house,
every office of the federal government. We recognise the imperative
need for this development. Yet we must not fail to comprehend its
grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood are all involved;
so is the very structure of our society.
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition
of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military
-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced
power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this
combination endanger our liberties or our democratic processes."
INTERNATIONAL CONCERNS OVER NEW WEAPONS
The United Nations was established in 1945 with the aim of "saving
succeeding generations from the scourge of war". In 1975 the General
Assembly considered a draft first proposed by the Soviet Union:
"Prohibition of the Development and Manufacture of New Types of
Weapons of Mass Destruction and New Systems of Such Weapons".
In 1979 the Soviet Union added a list of some types of potential
weapons of mass destruction:
1) Radiological weapons (using radioactive materials) which could
produce harmful effects similar to those of a nuclear explosion;
2) Particle beam weapons, based on charged or neutral particles,
to affect biological targets;
3) Infrasonic acoustic radiation weapons;
4) Electromagnetic weapons operating at certain radio-frequency
radiations which could have injurious effects on human organs.
In response, the US and other Western nations stalled. They gave
a long, convoluted reason, but the result was the same.
In an article entitled "Non-Lethal Weapons May Violate Treaties",
the author notes that the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention
covers many of the non-conventional weapons; "those that utilize
infrasound or electromagnetic energy (including lasers, microwave
or radiofrequency radiation, or visible light pulsed at brainwave
frequency) for their effects."
Harlan Girard, Managing Director of the International Committee
Against Offensive Microwave Weapons, told me he believes the strategy
behind the government's recent push for less-than-lethal weapons
is a subterfuge. The ones that are now getting all the publicity
are put up for scrutiny to get the public's approval. The electromagnetic
mind-altering technologies are not mentioned, but would be brought
in later under the umbrella of less-than- lethal weapons.
These weapons were recently transferred from the Department of
Defense over to the Department of Justice. Why? Because there are
several international treaties that specifically limit or exclude
weapons of this nature from being used in international warfare.
In other words, weapons that are barred from use against our country's
worst enemies (not withstanding the fact that the US did use this
weapon against Iraqi troops!) can now be used against our own citizens
by the local police departments against such groups as peaceful
protestors of US nuclear policies.
TOWARDS GLOBAL MIND CONTROL
The secrecy involved in the development of the electromagnetic
mind-altering technology reflects the tremendous power that is inherent
in it. To put it bluntly, whoever controls this technology can control
the minds of men-all men.
There is evidence that the US Government has plans to extend the
range of this technology to envelop all peoples, all countries.
This can be accomplished, is being accomplished, by utilising the
nearly completed HAARP Project for overseas areas and the GWEN network
now in place in the US. The US Government denies all this.
Dr Michael Persinger is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience
at Laurentian University, Ontario, Canada. You have met him before
in the pages of Resonance where we reported on his findings that
strong electromagnetic fields can affect a person's brain.
"Temporal lobe stimulation," he said, "can evoke the feeling of
a presence, disorientation, and perceptual irregularities. It can
activate images stored in the subject's memory, including nightmares
and monsters that are normally suppressed."
Dr Persinger wrote an article a few years ago, titled "On the
Possibility of Directly Accessing Every Human Brain by Electromagnetic
Induction of Fundamental Algorithms". The abstract reads:
"Contemporary neuroscience suggests the existence of fundamental
algorithms by which all sensory transduction is translated into
an intrinsic, brain-specific code. Direct stimulation of these codes
within the human temporal or limbic cortices by applied electromagnetic
patterns may require energy levels which are within the range of
both geomagnetic activity and contemporary communication networks.
A process which is coupled to the narrow band of brain temperature
could allow all normal human brains to be. affected by a subharmonic
whose frequency range at about 10 Hz would only vary by 0. 1 Hz."
He concludes the article with this:
"Within the last two decades a potential has emerged which was
improbable, but which is now marginally feasible. This potential
is the technical capability to influence directly the major portion
of the approximately six billion brains of the human species, without
mediation through classical sensory modalities, by generating neural
information within a physical medium within which all members of
the species are immersed.
"The historical emergence of such possibilities, which have ranged
from gunpowder to atomic fission, have resulted in major changes
in the social evolution that occurred inordinately quickly after
the implementation. Reduction of the risk of the inappropriate application
of these technologies requires the continued and open discussion
of their realistic feasibility and implications within the scientific
and public domain."
It doesn't get any plainer than that. And we do not have open
discussion because the US Government has totally denied the existence
of this technology.
I would like to give special thanks to: Jan Wiesemann for sending
the Silent Sounds® statement and patents which were the keystone
of this article; Mike Coyle, whose computer search turned up many
more related patents; Harlan Girard, who has provided numerous official
government documents; and to the many who have provided newsclippings
and articles, moral and financial support to Resonance, without
which we'd have ceased publication long ago.
