Thought I'd do my own research in to mobile phone masts and how they work, and here us a very interesting description:


A mast is a freestanding structure which supports antennas at a height where they can transmit and receive radio waves . When you make a call, your mobile phone transmits a signal to the nearest base station, the signal is then transmitted through mobile and fixed line networks to connect to the person receiving the call.
(uk.ask.com...)

So they use radio waves? Have radio waves ever (allegedly) been used in mind control experiments?

This all mind blowing.
I've never heard of it before this post.
Also, I'm surprised that some of their bebo accounts are still up and running as well.

Interesting subject this one. I was in the UK when the suicides took place and I found it really strange as there were multiple successful suicides in the same town in a short period of time. Initially I thought that the people who died were probably members of a suicide cult or/and had completed rituals that they shouldn't have and went insane.

I asked a friend who lives near Bridgend (Porthcawl) about the suicides and he told me that he knew one of the girls who committed suicide there and that there was no suicide cult or pact as far as he can tell. He said that Bridgend is an extremely boring town with loads of drugs going round and high unemployment. It might as well have been a chain of suicides that was sparked by one person killing themself and then their closest friends following after their friend's loss was too much to handle.

If you mix the bad weather with drugs like heroin, crack and coc aine then alcohol, unemployment, boredom, relationship breakup, family problems, debts and no meaningful entertainment it's not impossible to happen.

The whole subject is so bizarre that one would need to actually visit the place and conduct a thorough investigation if a conclusive answer will ever be made possible.

I live about 12 miles from Bridgend. When this first started it seemed like a sad case of suicide had occured. Then every few days another suicide, then another, then another and it went on and on and on. Incredible really. Everyone here was talking about it. The news was on it like fire yet the police had the audacity to release a statement saying the suicides werent connected lol! Some of the deceased were relatives or close friends of one another so one or two you could say were done in moments of sheer grief. Perhaps very drunk or out of it on drugs. But not all of them. Its just too strange. It came to a stop and has been quiet ever since. But without doubt this is a very strange series of events that deffo seem to have some unanswered questions. First ive heard of the voices telling them to do it. But some force was behind this. There were just way to many suicedes. RIP to all.

The data showed that when the cell phone was transmitting, the power of a characteristic brain-wave pattern called alpha waves in the person's brain was boosted significantly. The increased alpha wave activity was greatest in brain tissue directly beneath to the cell phone, strengthening the case that the phone was responsible for the observed effect.


Also!

n the summer of 1953, Dr José Rodriguez Delgado stepped into the ring for the very first time in his life and confronted a charging 1,000-pound bull. Suddenly, as the horned animal lunged towards him aggressively, the bull stopped its charge and turned aside. But what really happened? Dr Delgado used a radio signal to activate an electrode implanted deep in the bull's brain, pressed a button on the transmitter and the animal obediently turned to the right and trotted away.

Sorry for the late reply. Indeed the probable cause of these tragic events is probably a straightforward but still interesting one as it is a large number of people in one town.

My opinion is that with the credit crunch in full bite, some people have just had enough.
I hope that this worrying trend does not continue though.

I don't think anything specific was happening in Bridgend, apart perhaps from the "knock on" effect of one suicide potentially sparking others.

In fact, although Wales in general used to have a higher suicide rate than other areas of the UK, that trend has decreased in recent years. I think the major factor in Bridgend was the media reporting of the suicides in the area, whereas there were just as many suicides happening elsewhere, they just weren't being reported.

Here's a link from the Office of National Statistics showing that suicide rates in Wales are consistent with other areas in the UK

That said though, all suicides are tragic, particularly when young people are involved, and I personally have had experience of this and know how devastating it is to those who are left bereft and wondering why?

I am pretty sure I had seen an thread on here a long long time ago about about the "100th monkey"

www.wowzone.com...

The principle is basically that a number of monkeys were taught a skill and after a certain number of the population had learned it, it became instinct to new monkeys.

I personally am very sensitive to moods of others, to the point that I cannot be around those that are excessively angry or sad without starting to experience the same feelings myself. Of course this comes in so handy when I am around joyful people.

Anyway it seems plausible to me that a combination of energy manipulation from a very strong personality and collective consciousness could have come into play... if you are looking for a paranormal explanation

I was just doing a little digging prompted by a recent thread made about a humming noise being heard worldwide and that some have commited suicide over it. I came across some information about The mosquito device that emits certain frequencies that repel teenagers...interestingly invented and tested in south wales....

Who knows what effects this thing could have!

Having lived in the region for several years, I have often wondered if there is some kind of ancient imprint on the land- perhaps laid down in centuries past. The Valleys have a particularly morose feel to them that seems to extend to the coast in some places.

Anyway, I was perusing the net at the mythology of the area and came across this website;

www.mythicalwales.co.uk...

I was looking, in particular about the nearby village of Merthyr Mawr where the murderous keeper of the 'New Inn' dispatched travellers in graves of two or three bodies. Could this have left an imprint? Perhaps this energy was being revisited in the suicides of the town?

There is also mention of a nearby village that disappeared called 'Treganlaw' (translates as the town of a hundred hands). It is thought it was swallowed by sand dunes, but this name adds a more sinister slant to the story/ myth!

I haven't been following much in regards to the paranormal for a few years. So this was an interesting read. I wonder if any of them have been playing around with "things that shouldn't be played with"? I'm thinking seances and the likes. Never know what you bring to the table, could be anything.

And as they say, negative energy in people can bring unwanted guests that are drawn to that energy. Maybe something is lurking around causing people to end it?

If you've ever been to Bridgend you'd know why this happened.
There's also a small village in Staffordshire that supposedly has a spooky suicide / death rate.

I agree. Hopelessness is a reason why many people commit suicide. Depression is the other. These 2 are most often combined. Younger people are very impulsive and do not tend to think things out nor have consequential thinking. Sometimes younger people do not realize how permanent suicide is. If you have some of them that have been exposed to suicide, they are more likely to follow the behavior out of sadness and despair.

Depression is also genetic. If you have drug use, unemployment and the other negative factors you mentioned in your post, then it is not surprising that this has occurred. It is however extremely sad.

I heard about this at the time but i did not know it was so widespread. aparantly the police have told the media to stop repoting it to stop copycats.
Between 2007 and 2011 there have been 79 suicides in the town nearly all from hanging thats a huge figure for a small town

79 is a huge number for a small town of 40,000 max.

When i heard of this string of suicides my first instinct told me it would be (as is the reputation of the town) because it is a terrible place for young people to grow up with drugs, alcohol abuse and unemployment, mix that together with the terrible depressing music that stems from the town: Bullet for My Valentine, Funeral for a Friend, Lostprophets all started out and have strong connections with Bridgend and probably why whenever my best mate at the time listened to them I felt a bit depressed.

But when i think about it, my town is rather the same as Bridgend just a bit larger, Ex coal mining town, not alot going on and the best music to come out of it is Pop Idols Sam Nixon and the band Saxon. ahaha

No not many really, i can think of a few recently like the 15 year old that killed himself after his mother died and a man who hung himself from a railway bridge in the woods in the next village to mine over depression, he must have been very lonely because no one had reported him missing and was found weeks after he did himself in...

So from experience of a town like Bridgend, yes Barnsley, you're correct good sir, there was definitely a knock on effect or something.
