This is why I love this site, I find stuff like this. This is the sort of stuff i'm interested in. I'm in school studying to be a veterinarian, and it's cool, if you could say, that they found how to do it. However, there will be consequences...everything is so easily deployed nowadays, I just hope they're very careful where they stick that syringe.

Zombies aren't aggressive. They're just hungry. And slow but persistent.

BTW, rabies has sort of the same effect. Doesn't it? But that is pretty wild about the photosensitivity.

Thanks for the thread


This idea of 'controlling' or 'regulating' a soldiers emotions is something that has cropped up in government and military documentation on a few occasions, usually as a throw away line or a caveat of the type of technology that is to come. One such mention comes from the now well publicised document 'Rebuilding America's Defenses - Strategy, Forces and Resources For a New Century', which many see as the blueprint of the PNAC Plan for U.S. Global Hegemony.

So, what does the document have to say on the topic of this thread? Well, on page 74 of this document (pdf), page 61 or 62 of the original (I think), under the chapter title of 'Transforming U.S. Conventional Forces' it says:


Consider just the potential changes that might effect the infantryman. Future soldiers may operate in encapsulated, climate-controlled, powered fighting suits, laced with sensors, and boasting chameleon-like 'active' camouflage. 'Skin-patch' pharmaceuticals help regulate fears, focus concentration and enhance endurance and strength. A display mounted on a soldier’s helmet permits a comprehensive view of the battlefield – in effect to look around corners and over hills – and allows the soldier to access the entire combat information and intelligence system while filtering incoming data to prevent overload. Individual weapons are more lethal, and a soldier’s ability to call for highly precise and reliable indirect fires – not only from Army systems but those of other services – allows each individual to have great influence over huge spaces. Under the 'Land Warrior' program, some Army experts envision a 'squad' of seven soldiers able to dominate an area the size of the Gettysburg battlefield – where, in 1863, some 165,000 men fought.


Of course, like with most of the plans they have, fancy, non-threatening terminology needs to be used in order to sell the idea to those in positions of power (with little knowledge of the subject) and us, the unsuspecting public. With this in mind let me introduce you to a term you might may be hearing a lot of in the future: Tactical Pharmacology. Sounds very 'la-di-da', doesn't it? This particular term was used by The British Medical Association in a report entitled, "The Use of Drugs As Weapons." While the BMA where concerned at the potential of such development they did recognise that governments are "demonstrating considerable interest in the possibility of using drugs as weapons." As a writer for the New York Times points out:


We could also see troops going into action with chemically-heightened aggression, as well as resistance to fear, pain and fatigue. It is not science fiction to suggest that we might see military pharmacology that can remove feelings of guilt or post-traumatic stress. The economic temptation is strong: five times more soldiers suffer mental than physical wounds in war.

New York Times


As with most things it will be tested on the military first.

War is Hell.

it depends who's zombies we are talking about. 28 days later zombies are fast and angry AND hungry.

something like this was done on a human once, except it was electrodes implanted into the aggression part of the brain instead of a virus. it was done to a schizophrenic patient. they found that running a current through the pleasure center allowed the patients to function regularly in society, and running one through the aggression center made them want to kill everyone.

pretty unethical..the second part at least. it was an older study.

Nice.

A few weeks ago i was reading an article called:"Reality Check: The CDC Tells Us Which Movie Pandemics Are Possible" and the 28 days later virus was "Pure fantasy" to them.Not because the "rage virus" doesn't exist,but because there isn't any virus with such a short incubation period.


The Disease: The Rage virus infects people instantly, turning them into zombie-like creatures in less than 30 seconds.
The Diagnosis: Pure Fantasy. "There are no pathogens that would have such a short incubation period of a matter of seconds before a person is visibly sick and potentially dying from the infection."


www.nextmovie.com...

I didn't make any conspiracy connection at the time,but now with this thread,my paranoia is on red alert.

Thanks Saturn for the info.

If you ask me, this more or less resembles the film "I Am Legend" with Will Smith.

I mean, they weren't really zombies, more like very aggressive mutated people, who reacted badly to light. Although, from memory, I believe the light killed them, but still a similar aspect.

Also, they were mutated because of a Cancer cure that was a variant of the Measles virus, which then mutated into what was seen on screen.

Guess you agreed with my post right above yours. 'Twas the first movie that popped into my mind as well.

They are so f crazy! how could they make this?
if it spread world wide. it would all but end human life.
oh! that's what they wont!

it would be the best way to take out an enemies country.
drop it on china with a short life. 29 days.
and let they kill them selves off.

as for using it on soldiers. they would kill each other.
and make mistakes.
you need to make them un’aggressive.
so they are cold killers.

I hope some one lets the good one out.
Please!!!
let it stop the fighting and hate.

Well isn't that interesting? I wonder what they would do with such a bio-terror; make enemy soldiers calm and docile?

OR

Hurl it into a populations water supply and laugh knowing the enemy will tear itself apart from the inside out.

And to think they could control it with a bit of light... And by "they" I don't really mean any group in particular
but just the thought that it can be CONTROLLED is what makes it the scariest reality to me. Imagine just sitting on your couch watching T.V. with your family and then suddenly jump up and start to get immediate violent urges to kill any living thing within your line of vision. So you turn to your family with a crazed look on your face and start beating them to death with the Tivo remote due to incontrollable impulses hammering into your brain via certain light sequencing being transmitted to you through the T.V.

Sorry for the grim picture I painted, it would probably never happen anyway but to think that people are smart enough to do it just flat out sucks.
boo mad scientists.

Wouldn't it be funny if in the next 20 or so years we start to see zombies films based on a true story?

I called it now...

All very interesting. Research synthia and Dr. Craig J. Venter. Venter has recieved millions of dollars in funding from private companies to create a fully synthetic life form completely immune to antibiotics in mammalian cell cultures. Stuff taken from a science fiction movie, except it's REAL and it EXISTS. Read about it. You won't like what you discover.

Regarding the rat rage virus or whatever... that is Horrifying!

I feel that it's rather unintelligent to even manufacture this kind of virus/pathogen/parasite. I know we need to research it to learn how it affects organisms and how it can be reversed or lessened, but what do virus's do?

They are, in fact, able to mutate and evolve. They can transfer to different species rather easily. It would take a couple generations of that virus to be able to spread it's species list, but it still can be done

There is already mad cow disease out there, that we can be infected with through eating infected meat. Think of if someone hybridized rabies and mad cow disease. Then there is a virus that would basically take control of our bodies and mind. We would be unable to think, effectively killing our memory. Leaving us with nothing but our current needs. No more wants, just needs. And in this state, needs would be surviving. Water and food are natural instincts to stay alive.

Honestly, I think it's what we Humans need. A major depopulation. Sure, we would have to rebuild, but if we went out like that, all the dead bodies would eventually decompose and be a form of fertilizer (maybe, I'm not sure about how humans decompose). If most of the world died from a zombie like virus, I would think that information would still be there. There probably wouldn't be wireless and wired access to information, meaning we would have to travel to gain information back.

I don't think it's out of our reach and drive, as Humans, to start over and rebuild our world.

A world based on preservation and survival, and balance between all humans would be LOADS better than the SH#T we live in now.
Sure there would be those people who are still greedy, let natural selection take place. Let those genes that provoke those negative thoughts be taken out of the gene pool naturally.
