Scientists Warn Future Drugs Will Be Designed To Control The Human Mind


www.naturalnews.com

It may sound like something out of a science fiction plot, but Oxford researchers say that modern conventional medicine is gradually developing ways to change the moral states of humans through pharmaceutical drugs, and thus control the way people think and act in various life situations. These new drugs will literally have the ability to disrupt an individual's personal morality, and instead reprogram that person to believe and do whatever the drug designer has created that drug to do

This news is straight out of A Brave New World, and 1984.

Mind control is already a very dangerous side effect of
many drugs available now.

Also interesting to note the survey at the end of the second source indicates the majority of people still reject this "advancment in medicine"



A pill to enhance moral behaviour; a treatment for racist thoughts; a therapy to increase your empathy for people in other countries - these may sound like the stuff of science fiction but, with medicine moving closer to altering our moral state, society should be preparing for the consequences...

But this is nothing new at all... In fact, it's the very reason possession of '___' is considered sedition and a treasonable offense... specifically because it has the ability to modify the future mindstate of the subject... regardless of the validity and/or benefit or harm of this change in mind the fact that large amounts of voters can become quickly different in their opinions presented a huge problem for those who operate out of fear.


Indeed, I can't think of a mind altering drug who's use doesn't also change one's moral compass, whether this be something like prozac, paxil, or other more illegal substances like marijuana or coc aine... let alone alcohol!

Good. Maybe if they give me a drug that controls my mind and makes me incapable of reasoning for myself it wont bother me so much that I am living in an idiocracy.

Because right now, it kinda sucks.

Fascinating , in a scary kind of way. Glad you sighted another source besides naturalnews, you know how they fare around here.

I guess in pursuit of constant profits, big pharma is taking a new turn to medicate some of our negative psychological attributes. What are the side effects? Hopefully they are not like those from Ambien

The first thing that came to mind when I saw treats racism, empathy and anger was....so does cannabis.
Also, so does love, but I guess there is either not enough of that around to counter all of the negative exposure we get these days from life, the media, work, etc....

Hugs and some attention can work wonders, but that does not reach everyone. So maybe on the more seriously demented/deranged, these may stand to benefit, but I can see these things "catching on," and becoming popular, along the same lines as cosmetic surgery, as an effort to modify oneself.

I can just see the new bombardment of advertisements, playing to our vulnerability, saying "tell your doctor....."
Maybe I am too cynical when it comes to this stuff and perhaps it will be used make a difference in severe cases, but I just think it's another profitable band-aid for issues, as opposed to examinging why people are like this, and the source for their ills.
I am curious too as to what the new ingredients involved are, something new or something old?

Peace,
spec

Who knows...

Maybe Flouride has unintended side affects...or should I say intended?

I also wonder to what length some drugs are used even after these unintended side affects are...
so they can experiment with the recipie....

Interesting, it seems this idea is making the rounds in a few publications lately.

Just found this one...

Mood Manipulation is not Mind Control

blogs.discovermagazine.com...

Seems everyone is attempting to put a spin on it...one way or another.


The field is in its infancy, but "it's very far from being science fiction", said Dr Guy Kahane, deputy director of the Oxford Centre for Neuroethics and a Wellcome Trust biomedical ethics award winner.

"Science has ignored the question of moral improvement so far, but it is now becoming a big debate," he said. "There is already a growing body of research you can describe in these terms. Studies show that certain drugs affect the ways people respond to moral dilemmas by increasing their sense of empathy, group affiliation and by reducing aggression."

Researchers have become very interested in developing biomedical technologies capable of intervening in the biological processes that affect moral behaviour and moral thinking, according to Dr Tom Douglas, a Wellcome Trust research fellow at Oxford University's Uehiro Centre. "It is a very hot area of scientific study right now."

Complete control cannot be achieved by medicine/chemicals alone, the name and meaning of an authority can't be transferred to the mind that way. Looking further into the future no doubt technology will emerge which will involve computers connected to the brain in order to create a perfect state of being.

Right now technology is still new to people, many have grown up without them. But overtime people will become more and more accustomed as technology becomes more and more advanced and abundant, those seeing dangers in technology will be ridiculed and made fun of. The benefits of a global network of interconnected brains is beyond our current imagination. Just the idea of being able to program the brain directly instead of oldfashioned, slow and timeconsuming, dull, expensive learning defeats all ethical arguments against. Besides a lifetime of drugs for the entire population is expensive, why not just alter the brain's chemistry directly by use of technological implants. Step after that is regulation of the body's defenses against any disease (just download a vaccin), alterations like hair or eyecolor, until people can completely interact with computers, ultimately leading to extending the natural lifespan and eradicating all disease. Unless ofcourse some a***le comes along, seizes the machines to make people do his bidding ofcourse, hey you know what let a woman do it for a change like the Borg queen, the mother of all mothers who would 'take care' for the entire human family.

Just wondering, have you seen this yet?


The death of Owsley Augustus Stanley III, high priest of psychedelia, prompts an interesting question: did anyone learn anything about reality from '___'? Unlike most other drugs, the psychedelics were meant to bring us closer to the real world, and not just to blot it out. But as we approach the half-centenary of the summer of love this claim looks rather threadbare. The acid casualty, mumbling and droning about spirituality, is a much more typical reminder of the period than anyone genuinely kinder and wiser as a result.

And yet ... among the kind and decent people who took these drugs, it's hard to find anyone who did not feel that they learned something important as a result. So, was it all a delusion, or was it a glimpse – however inadequate – of something real and standing beyond our everyday lives?

Great post, and you bring up a really important aspect of this "advancment" and "enhancment".

I wonder how much of this technology is being developed in conjunction with transhumanism?

As you mentioned, it could all work together.

As I sit here, I realize I imagine they are already doing it somewhere.

In a lab, in white coats, all sterile and creepy like.

And work with neuromarketing, for full out behavior manipulation and mind control. More population control than transhumanism but part of the package is "each according to his station."



Excellent find! S&F&

'Would I be able to select my drug designer? I would like to try some of Sasha Shulgin's exx formula. Too bad Bear was just killed in Australia a month or so ago. I would like some of his purple mind expanders, to go...

I wonder how many people that have eaten '___' a half-dozen times or more consider Bush or Reagan to be the best presidents ever?? If the answer is what I suspect I think we may have hit on something here.

Pihkal.

Last time I checked they already have drugs out there meant to alter/control certain aspects of your mind. I can recall zoloft and adderal being quite "altering". Not exactly New news to this guy XD

Its how these commercials let people "self diagnose" with these asinine "symptoms."

-Do you sometimes feel sad?

-After working all day and dealing with screaming kids, do you sometimes feel drained?

I can see it happening. Doctors hand these pills out like pez and with each prescription, you know they're getting a kickback.

please do not put Cannabis in the same category. It is thanks to that plant that I have the knowledge and the health that I have today.

Here is something for you to read up on.

www.marijuanalibrary.org...

That being said, I do not recommend the use of any anti depressive pills. I hated how it made me feel when I was on them. I felt imprisoned inside my own mind and i felt very anxious, as if my mind was under attack, i felt as if I was fighting for my will. I was unable to think for myself, i stared blankly forward as if I was a zombie. I was only on them for a week, my mother who didnt know anything about the effects of the pills kept trying to give it to me as instructed by the doctors.

I pretended to swallow the pill, and hide it under my pillow and later flush it down the toilet. I will never take such pills again, they would have to kill me before shoving one of those things down my throat again.

For those who have already taken those pills, knows how hard it is to be able to think freely through em.

on contrary to cannabis, it does alter your mind yes, but in a good way, according to the article, our brains have thc receptors already inside our brains. The plant is like the missing key to activating those receptors. It does multiply all your senses to a higher state. not a lower state compared to what the legal drugs does.

Why people let those drugs be used as a "depression treatment" is beyond me. I feel sorry for the people locked up in mental institutes who are forced these drugs on a daily basis.
The movie Disturbing behavior is not far from the truth.

Yes, throw that into the mix as well, and also thinking of all of the new meds they are designing with
chips in them. GAH! I cant even wrap my brain around it.


EmSense CEO Keith Winter says the firm strives to measure “emotion and consumer engagement in all forms of marketing stimuli, spanning advertising, packaging, creative concepts and the shopper experience.” The in-home approach offers the advantages of a more natural setting, lower costs, and larger sample sizes. The firm claims to have more than 2,000 households enrolled in the home neuro panel, and plans to expand that to 25,000 by the end of 2011.

Man has always taken drugs since the cave, all cultures show it especially in their art.

There is a difference though here, when someone uses a drug for a transcendental experience or to chill, its their private choice.

The potential is terrifying, people could be turned into assassins, commit suicide. I imagine the army has difficulty recruiting today. These drugs could change that nicely by making people change their moral views on today's corrupt wars.

These drugs could influence our free will and literally enslave us. Imagine added to the water in schools etc it doesn't bear thinking about where we are going in the world today..

It's the 'ol been there, done that. We have been being controlled for some time with chems.
It's a matter of perspective. You will not find a stronger drug than whats in our bodies already. It's a matter of plus and minus, blocking contact and increasing contact. getting at what's in there to scramble it up and pour it in a mold. Even our most powerful instincts, hunger, love, hate, breathing can be altered.
