Default Psychotronic Weapons

A very interesting read which may answer some questions about current events in the US.

Mr Serdyukov said: ‘The development of weaponry based on new physics principles – direct-energy weapons, geophysical weapons, wave-energy weapons, genetic weapons, psychotronic weapons, and so on – is part of the state arms procurement programme for 2011-2020.’

Mind Games


Mind Games, you'll recall, is the story that most intellectuals considered the Defense Department's warning to whistleblowers. Speak out about wrongdoing and you'll start hearing voices in your head until you're either labeled schizophrenic or commit suicide. That appears to be what Russia is going to use their psychotronic weapon for in the primary phases of testing. Of course, some people are already claiming that such a weapon is being used against them as described in this petition.

Mind-Controlled Artificial Limbs Fusing Man and Machine Coming Next Year

Mind-Controlled Artificial Limbs Fusing Man and Machine Coming Next Year | Wired Science | Wired.com

Quote:
A postdoctoral student has developed a technique for implanting thought-controlled robotic arms and their electrodes directly to the bones and nerves of amputees, a move which he is calling “the future of artificial limbs”. The first volunteers will receive their new limbs early in 2013.

Default Amputee with bionic leg climbs 103 floors of Chicago skyscraper

The Washington Post's written story may be gone but they still have a video up.

Voltages were applied by an electrode directly to the surface of my brain during surgery to locate my motor strip (a "no-go" area), which in turn caused different parts of my body to move. I was under anesthesia at the time.

I don't see why it can not work the other way around.

In order to "feel" his legs move, the next step will be finding a way to stimulate the primary sensory cortex, which should be much easier than reading signals from the (adjacent) motor cortex. In fact, this has probably already been done.

This is getting ridiculous, The Washington Post can keep an obscure story up from 2007 but they keep pulling information about a startling scientific accomplishment that just happened. I don't say this very often but WTF!

The neurological advancements are coming in fast and thick now...

Two rats, thousands of miles apart, cooperate telepathically via brain implant

Quote:
Electrical signals from a "leader" rat’s brain were collected, encoded and then zapped into the "follower" rat’s cortex in the form of an electrical signal. The follower rat then pressed one of two levers based on a light visible only to the leader rat. The Duke University experiment is the first time two animals have collaborated through such an artificial link, and shows that the mammal brain can be trained to act on electrical signals from another animal.

Obama unveils brain mapping project

Now that FBI director Robert S. Mueller is finally going to step down I may be more at liberty to discuss what I know about the present state of psychotronic technologies. Let's just say this science is FAR more advanced than anyone without an open mind would believe is possible.
