Many people are shocked to discover that this comes from such a reputable source as Sonoma State University.
In light of the recent allegations that DC Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis was being targeted with exotic neurological weapons based on EM technology I reached out to the paper's author Professor Peter Phillips. For some strange reason he doesn't seem to be too interested in speaking with me.
Back in early 2013 the Department of Defense attempted to codify DARPA's mind control programs by co-opting Yale University via a $1,800,000 grant. The DoD tried to use Orwellian doublespeak by rebranding mind control as “Advanced Interrogation”. You’ll no doubt recall how the Bush Administration euphemistically referred to torture as “Enhanced Interrogation”. Fortunately, the student body and alumni of Yale shot the plan down by exposing that it is in actuality a “perversion of medicine”.
Mind-controlled robotic suit to debut at World Cup 2014
Shortly before 5pm local time on 12 June at Arena Corinthians in São Paulo, a young paraplegic Brazilian will stand up from a wheelchair, walk over to midfield, and take the first kick of the 2014 World Cup.
For those hoping for miracles at football's greatest tournament, the scene may be the closest they get to witnessing one. For Miguel Nicolelis, a neuroengineer based at Duke University in North Carolina, the moment demands faith of another kind. As hundreds of millions tune in for the opening match, they will see the first public demonstration of technology he claims will turn wheelchairs into museum pieces.
The technology in question is a mind-controlled robotic exoskeleton. The complex and conspicuous robotic suit, built from lightweight alloys and powered by hydraulics, has a simple enough function. When a paraplegic person straps themselves in, the machine does the job that their leg muscles no longer can.
The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has announced plans for a cutting-edge technology-based research program to develop a tiny, implanted chip in the skull to treat psychiatric disorders such as anxiety, PTSD and major depression.
Optogenetics, a technology that allows scientists to control brain activity
by shining light on neurons, relies on light-sensitive proteins that can
suppress or stimulate electrical signals within cells. This technique requires a
light source to be implanted in the brain, where it can reach the cells to be
MIT engineers have now developed the first light-sensitive molecule that
enables neurons to be silenced noninvasively, using a light source outside the
skull. This makes it possible to do long-term studies without an implanted light
source. The protein, known as Jaws, also allows a larger volume of tissue to be
influenced at once.
"Dr. Michio Kaku returns to Big Think studios to discuss his latest book, The Future of the Mind. Here he explains the remarkable advances in brain imaging."
I'm reading this book now and highly recommend it.
