Means of Information War Threaten Democracy and Mankind
(edited by John Allman)
In the report on U.S. military policy by Project for New American Century it is stated: "It is now commonly understood that information and other new technologies ... are creating a dynamic that may threaten America's ability to exercise its dominant military power. Potential rivals, such as China are anxious to exploit those transformational technologies broadly, while adversaries like Iran, Iraq and North Korea are rushing to develop ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons ... the effects of information and other advanced technologies promise to revolutionize the nature of conventional armed forces" (ref. 13, pg. 4 and 11). The military concept of information technologies is, though, kept hidden from the world general public.
In February 2000 the Russian daily Segodnya, in the article "Riders of Psychotronic Apocalypse" (1), informed that in 1996 Russian government's information agency FAPSI warned that the effect of "informational means of war" is comparable to "the effect of use of weapon of mass destruction" and produced a report entitled "Information Weapon as a Threat to National Security of Russia". In reaction the Russian State Duma and consequently Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States addressed the United Nations, OBSE and European Council with a proposal for an international convention banning the development and use of informational weapons. According to the same newspaper Segodnya in March 1998, the matter was discussed with U.N. secretary general Kofi Anan, and included on the agenda of General Assembly of the U.N. Most probably the USA vetoed this proposal and in consequence the ban of informational weapons was not discussed by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
In the Doctrine of Informational Security of the Russian Federation, signed by president Putin in September 2000, among the dangers threatening the informational security of Russian Federation, is listed "the threat to the constitutional rights and freedoms of people and citizens in the sphere of spiritual life... individual, group and societal consciousness" and "illegal use of special means affecting individual, group and societal consciousness." (16). Among the major directions of the international cooperation toward the guaranteeing of the information security is listed "the ban of production, dissemination and use of 'information weapons'."(17).
Segodnya, in the discussed article, described mostly "mysterious information-psychological" means capable not only of harming human health, but also of blocking human free will at the subconscious level, impairing human beings' ability of "political, cultural and other self-identification" and even "causing destruction of indivisible informational and spiritual space of the Russian Federation". According to Russian scientist A. F. Okhatrin, those means are also capable to kill people (2). Underneath the article, Segodnya published a review of weapons affecting human psyche which it obtained from the Russian Department of Defense. Together with ultrasound and microwave weapons, there are listed "psychotronic weapons" which, in addition to having the capability of "transfering information among people", are able to act on communication and electronic systems (1).
In the Space Preservation Bill proposed by Congressman Dennis J. Kucinich in the U.S. House of Representatives in 2001, the following technologies enabling access to human brain, human health impairment or killing of people were named: "land-based, sea-based or space-based systems using radiation, electromagnetic, psychotronic, sonic, laser or other energies directed at individual persons or targeted populations for the purpose of information war, mood managment or mind control of such persons or populations" (4). "Psychotronic weapon" listed in the Dennis J. Kucinich's bill is described as a weapon using "torsion fields" radiation in the book "Psychotronic Weapon and the Security of Russia" (6) by Russian scientist Vladimir Tsygankov and Vladimir Lopatin (a politician, who worked on Committees on Security in Russian Federal Republic, State Duma of the Russian Federation and the Interparliamentary Assembly of the Union of Independent States). Among the possible sources of remote influence on human psyche those two authors list "generators of physical fields" of "known as well as unknown nature" (14). It is well known that both KGB and CIA carried out a large-scale research of psychic phenomena in the 70's of the past century. It is not out of question that their scientists succeded in discovering the physical basis of those phenomena. Among the known physical concepts non-local electron and photon connection can be used to explain telepathy. The ability of sound and light technologies to influence human psyche is exemplified by Psychowalkman industry. The existence of the electromagnetic mind control technology is confirmed in the Conclusion of the Committee on Security of the Russian State Duma  and can be deduced from scientific and military literature.
Nerve impulses in the brain are carried by electrical signals triggered by changes in chemical balance. During the fifties and sixties of the past century, it was proved that human nervous system and behavior can be thoroughly controlled by electric signals imported to the brain by tiny electrodes (41). 100 stimulations of one point in the bull's brain made him 100 times bellow. When a man was asked to straighten his hand the bending of which was stimulated he replied "I think your electricity is stronger then my will." By means of electrical stimulation of the brain the rhythm of breathing and heart beat [this was even stopped for several pulses] was affected as well as the function of the most of the viscera - alike the secretion of the gall bladder. The stimulation of points in the brain where feelings and emotions reside produced decisions. A passive, depressed woman tore up a piece of paper when her center of anger was stimulated: "I did not control myself. I had to get up and tear", she commented. An aggressive woman, with the same point stimulated, got up and smashed against the wall the guitar she was playing until the moment of stimulation. The intensity of feelings could be controlled by turning the knob which controlled the intensity of the electric current. When the pleasure center was stimulated women offered marriage to therapists. Stimulation of a point in a monkey's brain stopped her maternal behavior toward a newborn baby. When the limbic system was stimulated the patients vigilance weakened, they lost capacity to think, often they began to undress or grope and when the stimulation stopped they did not remember it. The signals had to be delivered in specific frequencies to produce repetitive action of neurons. Spanish scientist Jose Delgado became world known when he, with the use of this technology, made a bull attack him by pressing one button on the small black box and stopped the bull few feet away from him by pressing another button.
The idea that electric currents in the brain could be induced by electromagnetic energy is an obvious next step in this path of research. The information inside of the brain is processed digitally; in other words analog perceptions are "translated" and transferred by a number and frequency of nerve impulses, while the intensity of the feeling or perception usually corresponds to the intensity of electrical current. Walter J. Freeman, who had been for years measuring the brain activity in reaction to different stimuli by multitudes of microelectrodes, presented already in 1975 a hypothesis "that a novel external stimulus is broadly transmitted from the primary sensory cortex or thalamus to other parts of the cortex... transmission occurs at some characteristic frequency, and...reception occurs in ... sets tuned to that frequency" (37). In other words, when neurons cooperate in the processing of specific information they synchronize their activity and oscillate in the same frequency. In an experiment by Wolf Singer (20) the differences in brain activity in reaction to two different stimuli, presented to the tested subject at the same time, were represented by two different groups of neurons oscillating in different frequencies. In the modern scientific literature synchronization of frequencies of emitted nerve impulses in different parts of the brain as a principle of brain functioning is generally accepted (19). Electroencephalographers have no doubt that those synchronizations appear on the EEG recordings and are already able to "read" in those frequencies the single letters of a word perceived by the tested subject (21). Theoretically this means that the events in the brain can be produced "synthetically" from the outside when additional energy is pumped into the brain in specific frequencies corresponding to specific brain activities. John Marks, in his book on CIA mind control research, quotes one of the CIA research veterans recalling a colleague's joke: "If you could find the natural radio frequency of a person's sphincter, you could make him run out of the room real fast" (22). Since most of the activity of human brain takes place in frequencies from 1 to 100 Hz and electromagnetic waves of this frequency are hundreds and even thousands of miles long, and, for that matter, could not target human brain, scientists started experimenting with pulsed microwaves. There exist "window" frequencies at which microwaves penetrate deep enough into the brain to produce activity of neurons.
