An expose on the intelligence agencies and their experiments with
Remote Mind Control


One series of CIA experiments searching for a method to induce amnesia found that pulsed microwaves could be used to over stimulate the production of acetycoline in the brain, a neurotransmitter associated with the storage of memory. This process is known as EDOM or Electronic Dissolution of Memory. Whilst a person is subjected to the signal they literally cannot store any memories, and are left instead with a period of amnesia or "missing time." They can even be influenced to have amnesia about their amnesia. According to the book, The Mind Manipulators, by Alan W. Scheflin and Edward M. Opton Jr, published in 1978, "The E.D.O.M. alters time senses by emitting radiowaves and ultra-sonic signal tones, which in turn act upon memory storage chemicals in the brain." It has been claimed that his process is used to "wipe" specific memories from the minds' individual's who have been exposed to highly classified information and are leaving the employ of government agencies who deal with sensitive information.

This particular technique leaves me wondering about so-called "missing time" events associated with alleged alien abductions. We have developed the technology to induce amnesiac periods in our own laboratories, and don't need alien intruders to help us explain how they can be induced.


The brain implant operations, now so commonly blamed on alien abductors, have been occurring on our planet for a long time at the hands of the human species. Doctors in Sweden have been placing brain transmitters in the heads of anaesthetised patients without their consent or knowledge for over thirty years. There is evidence that the Sodersjukhuest, Karolinska, Nacka, and Sundsvall Hospitals have implanted brain transmitters without the permission or knowledge of their patients for several decades. Swedish authorities deny the existence of brain transmitters and advise complainees that they risk admittance to mental institutions if they continue to talk about implanted devices.

In 1985, however, when a letter drafted by representatives of various Swedish human rights groups, and legal and technical professionals, was sent to the country's Attorney General, he referred it to the District Attorney, Mr. Overaklagaren, who determined that such activity would not be considered a crime (Overaklagaren, "ADII, 76-85).

A 1968 textbook entitled Bio-Medical Telemetry (written by Dr Stuart Mackay, formerly of the University of California, Berkeley), that was used by the Swedish Defence Research Institution's educational unit, reported, "Among the many telemetry instruments being used today, are miniature radio transmitters that can be swallowed, carried externally, or surgically implanted in man or animal. They permit the simultaneous study of behaviour and physiological functioning. The scope of observations is too broad to more than hint at a few examples. The possibilities are limited only by the imagination of the investigator."

Dr Jose Delgado, a pioneer of electronic brain stimulation (ESB) who was funded through front organisations by the U.S. Office of Naval Research and the CIA, stated in his book Physical Control of the Mind (published in 1969), that "brain transmitters is transmitted by way of radio frequencies."

"One of the possibilities with brain transmitters is to influence people so that they conform with the political system. Autonomic and somatic functions, individual and social behaviour, emotional and mental reactions may be invoked, maintained, modified, or inhibited, both in animals and in man, by stimulation of specific cerebral structures. Physical control of many brain functions is a demonstrated fact. It is even possible to follow intentions, the development of thought and visual experiences."

Early implants were about half the size of a cigarette filter but newer versions can be adapted to liquid crystals, injected directly into the bloodstream to lodge inside the brain. Two-way radio communication with brain transmitters has been possible since the 1950s, including voice messages and 'returned thought.'


The weapons that Harlan Girard says are being used in covert mind control operations include a transmitter which broadcasts at the frequency of the human nervous system, which he claims is manufactured by Loral Electro-Optical Systems in Pasadena, California. Loral, a major defence contractor, had previously conducted research on directed energy weapons for Lt Gen. Leonard Peroots of the US Air Force, who was searching for a weapon to implant messages into the minds of the enemy and to urge his own troops on to superhuman deeds of valour. The device employs electromagnetic radiation (EMR) of gigahertz frequency, pulsed at extremely low frequencies (ELF). It is used to torture people both physically and mentally, from a distance. Weapons of this type are thought to have been used against the British women protesting the presence of American cruise missiles at Greenham Common Air Base during the seventies. This weapon can be used to induce total sensory deprivation by broadcasting signals into the auditory nerve at such high power that it blocks the victim's ability to 'hear' themselves think. This device has taken the concept of the old phrase, 'its so noisy in here, I can't hear myself think' and turned it into a powerful weapon of terror.

The processes employed by such ELF technologies are described in various U.S. Defence Department publications, including one entitled The Electromagnetic Spectrum in Low-Intensity Conflict by Capt. Paul E. Tyler, Medical Command, United States Navy, which is included in a collection entitled, Low-Intensity Conflict and Modern Technology, edited by Lt Col. David J. Dean, United States Air Force. The paper was delivered in 1984 and the collection published in 1986, by Air University Press, Maxwell Air Force Base, Alabama.

Another pulsed microwave device can deliver audible signals directly to an individual whilst they remain undetectable to anyone else. The technology is very simple and can be built using an ordinary police radar gun. The microwave beam generated by the device is modulated at audio frequencies and can broadcast voices directly into the brain. In his book, The Body Electric, Nobel Prize nominee Robert Becker describes a series of experiments conducted in the early 1960s by Allen Frey, where this phenomena was first demonstrated, as well as later experiments conducted in 1973 at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research by Dr Joseph C. Sharp, who personally underwent tests in which he proved he could "hear and understand spoken words delivered to him in an echo-free isolation chamber via a pulsed-microwave audiogram (an analog of the words sound vibrations) beamed into his brain."

Becker then goes on to state, "Such a device has obvious applications in covert operations designed to drive a target crazy with "voices" or deliver undetectable instructions to a programmed assassin." A 1978 book entitled Microwave Auditory Effects and Applications, by James C. Lin, Ph.D., explained how audible voices can be broadcast directly into the brain. This technology could be used to make the deaf hear, but instead, it has been turned against the public.

Allen Frey also reported that he could speed up, slow down, or stop isolated frogs' hearts by synchronising the pulse rate of a microwave beam with the beat of the heart itself. "According to Robert Becker, similar results have been obtained using live frogs, indicating that it's technically feasible to produce heart attacks with a ray designed to penetrate the human chest." I should mention that Becker does not participate in such research as far as I know. I believe that he is interested in the more humane aspects of electro-magnetic research, and is fairly critical of military and intelligence applications of this type of research.

It has been demonstrated that focussed Ultra High Frequency (UHF) electromagnetic energy beams can be used to induce "considerable agitation and muscular activity" or "induce muscular weakness and lethargy." Microwaves can also be used to burn human skin, enhance the effects of drugs, bacteria and poisons, or affect the functioning of the entire brain. These effects were all studied at length by the CIA. On 21 September 1977, in testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research, Dr. Sidney Gottlieb (who directed the MKULTRA program) was forced to discuss aspects of the CIA's search to find "techniques of activation of the human organism by remote electronic means."

In a Reagan administration sponsored top-secret research project code-named Operation Black Beauty, Dr. Michael Persinger, and American-born Physiologist who runs the Environmental Psycho-Physiology Laboratory at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, was asked to develop a weapon that could be used to swiftly dampen crowd aggression. He developed an electromagnetic device that employed time-varying fields of low intensity pulsed in the ELF range, at frequencies between 1 and 10 hertz. Apparently a person standing in the field of this particular device will find a specific area in their brain flooded with histamines, resulting in uncontrollable fits of vomiting. Is this the sort of 'activation' we can look forward to?


Harlan Girard is no stranger to mind control. He claims that he himself has been targeted since 1983, after a series of incidents brought him to the attention of some less than pleasant, but very powerful people. It al began when he made a couple of negative comments about Reagan's "brand of Republicanism" to a former Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii who approached him in 1976 (while working in Australia) to raise funds for Reagan's long-term election campaign. He also voiced his disapproval at the prospect of any former Director of Central Intelligence becoming President, in response to a question from the former Governor on how he would feel about George Bush (whom he knew little about at the time) taking over the top spot in the White House.

When Girard later applied for a position as Commissioner to the South Pacific, a trade position that falls under White House jurisdiction, the Office of the President requested information concerning his background. In his reply Girard mentioned his earlier contact with Reagan's Hawaiian friend, having forgotten his earlier remarks and thinking the contact would be in his favour. James Baker, who was responsible for selecting the successful applicant, called the former Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii, and as a result, his earlier remarks to the Governor came to Baker's notice. He later found out that the Governor, like Baker, was a close personal friend of Reagan. Girard concludes that his telephone was tapped and his mail routinely opened (beginning around March 1983) once Baker decided he wasn't supporting the 'right' team. Around this time he claims that he was profiled by either George Bush's National Security Planning Group, or one of the pro-active counter-terrorist organisations being run by Oliver North from the basement of the White House.

In 1983, Oliver North, whom Reagan was known to refer to as "my favourite marine", was the National Security Council's liaison with FEMA, The Federal Emergency Management Agency, and already extremely right-wing organisation responsible for coordinating government agencies in times of national emergency or civil unrest, as well as planning for 'continuity of government'. North spent his time with FEMA conducting covert actions, and drafting plans for the overthrow of the US Constitution. It is believed that he also created a division of the agency that was given the task of 'neutralising' White House enemies. The code word for this program is DAKOTA.

The following undated memo, prepared by the Los Alamos National Laboratory, entitled 'Concepts for Assisting the Federal Emergency Management Agency in its Various Missions', outlines proposed research "to investigate microwave radiation effects on mammalian organisms" giving further credence to Girard's claims.

Girard believes the reason he became a target for mind control is that his 'profile' was thought to be similar to that of John Hinkley Jr, the man who attempted to assassinate Reagan in March, 1981. He too came from a privileged home and, like Girard, was estranged from his father. It would seem obvious that Hinkley disliked Reagan's politics, although there are a number of theories that suggest that the purpose of the assassination attempt on Reagan was to hand Bush the presidency earlier than was finally the case. After the attempt failed, Reagan all but handed over his presidential powers anyway. He really was just an actor playing the role of a president.

Girard was living in Los Angeles, not too far from Reagan's ranch in Santa Barbara, at the time he was profiled, adding (he believes) to speculation regarding his threat potential. Although this was sheer coincidence, it may have not been assessed that way, for it was around this time that his mind control "treatment" began. An outline of just how simplistic White House evaluations of potential threats to the President were after the attempt on Reagan's life, is mentioned by Bob Woodward in his book, Veil: The Secret Wars of the CIA. He comments that reports on threats to the President that operations people and analysts didn't believe were serious "and generally amounted to nothing more than two guys in a bar saying they would like to shoot Reagan" would have DCI William Casey ordering, "I want a team on it."

In 1989, the Federal Bureau of Investigation refused Mr. Girard access to his own file on the grounds that "it is exempt from mandatory release on the basis of 5 USC. 522 (b) (1)". This section of the United States Code is applicable to documents "to be kept secret in the interest of national defence or foreign policy". Girard has never held a security clearance nor applied for a job which required one, although he did work for the US Air Force from which he received an honourable discharge in 1963. What then might the FBI be hiding?

Girard says that he has been exposed to much highly classified and extremely sensitive information while his 'handlers' have tried to 'talk' him into committing murder, or at least suicide. Some inexperienced 'controllers' even come 'on-line' and talk to him (directly to his brain) relatively normally before beginning their continuous tirade of abuse, and some have even told him that they are practising on him before being sent on more important missions.


According to Harlan Girard, the equipment has also been used to influence politics in a much more direct fashion. He believes that Michael Dukakis, the Democrat presidential candidate running against George Bush in the 1988 US election, was targeted with microwave technology in order to impede his public speaking performance once the opinion polls showed he posed a threat to Bush's election prospects. He also claims that the equipment was used against Kitty Dukakis and drover her to the brink of suicide. In the glitzy Disneyland world of US politics, a presidential candidate with problems such as these to deal with obviously stands to lose the race to the White House. Girard's words when describing this scenario to me was, "Even if the Kennedy assassination and Watergate weren't coups, the 1988 election certainly was". It is likely that all three were coups, in effect, and may even have been conducted by the same de facto government. The first two are the subject of many a good book, and many more a theory.


Is Harlan Girard's personal claim of being a victim of mind control, and electromagnetic torture, so outrageous in light of the fact that this type of experimentation has taken place? He says the biggest flaw in the efficacy of the treatment that he has been subjected to, lies in the original 'simplistic' assessment of his personality, stating, "I am not homicidal, or suicidal. The CIA may murder me, but I will never become anybody's Automaton." No doubt many individuals would not have the same capacity to resist, or strength of resolve.

As for the question of why he has been allowed to live; in the days when he first realised that the White House (or FEMA) were trying to 'neutralise' him, he began keeping a diary which includes the number plates of numerous vehicles associated with his treatment which can be traced back directly to the White House. He has circulated a number of copies of this diary for his own protection. He also says that besides this is the even more horrifying possibility that the process of torture is itself gratifying to the individuals who conduct it, and for that reason they would rather keep working on him than get rid of him. He has been led to believe, and does believe, that daily reports are prepared on the progress of the torture of human beings with ELF weaponry, and that these reports are made available to twisted sympathisers within the government as a reward for their patronage to agencies such as the CIA.

Girard says that attempts have also been made on his life with ordinary weapons, however. He told me that if I were unable to contact him in the future I should speak with his lawyers, as they were fully aware of his situation, and would know if he were still in one piece.


If Harlan Girard's claims were the only ones of this nature, we may safely feel reason to doubt them, but they are not. Many individuals, some with high public profiles, believe that they are the subjects of mind control operations, but they generally keep a low profile with regard to the subject for fear that it will destroy their credibility, or worse. Others, who due to the anti-social behaviour that brings their cases to the public's attention, are written off as liars or nuts. For example, on Saturday 17 March 1984, The San Francisco Chronicle ran a story entitled "Incident near White House: Gunman's bizarre claims", in which a supposedly typical 'lone nut' would-be-assassin, who was arrested near the White House, claimed to have been implanted with a tracking/telemetry device in the form of a crystalline implant that 'works like a crystal radio'. He believed that commands inducing him to commit murder were being sent to him via this device. How many individuals who are unfamiliar with the capabilities of mind control, or the fact that it is even possible would believe such a claim?

A similar report turned up in The Miami Herald on Monday 24 May 1984 in an article entitled, "Drug pilot says he's caught in a CIA plot". The self-confessed former CIA-employed drug and arms running pilot, James Petit, claimed to be a victim of mind control, had been fitted with a crystalline implant, and that he knew of a CIA operation codenamed Operation Crystal Ball which was a plot to take over the world using mind control. A follow-up article in the same paper on 9 June 1984, stated that x-ray surgery had failed to find the implant.

However, another article on Petit, published in The National Examiner on 30 April 1985, stated that radiologists had detected a foreign object behind his left ear which they concluded "had no reason for being there". The article included an x-ray photograph of the unidentified 'thing'. Petit claimed that the device was implanted while he was being treated at the Burn Centre at the US Army Institute of Surgical Research in San Antonio, Texas, in April 1982, after his plane crashed in the Columbian jungle. Doctors from the hospital confirmed that he was treated there until 2 July 1982. He believed that the CIA were going to use him "in a program to assassinate someone".

Petit stated, "It would be a good idea to check Sirhan Sirhan, the man who shot Robert Kennedy to see if he has implants. James Earl Ray (who killed Martin Luther King) and John Hinkley (who shot President Reagan) should be checked too." Petit's lawyers confirmed that he worked for the CIA, and this was also substantiated by another attorney who was representing a co-defendant in a federal drug case. Petit claims the whole incident was part of a bizarre CIA program called Operation Crystal Ball designed to take over the world's judicial and political systems through mind control by the year 2000. He even claimed to have found top secret documents containing details of the program in a garbage bin in Key West, Florida, about twenty years earlier.


In her book, Such Things are Known, author Dorothy Burdick (an alias, in order to protect her reputation as a professor at Foothill College in Santa Clara, California) outlines her personal experience as an involuntary subject of mind control. She claims to have been used as a target in 'thought reading' and 'voice broadcasting' experiments being conducted by the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). Using a Cray supercomputer running a complex pattern-recognition program, the agency was able to read Dorothy's brainwave patterns and insert thoughts into her head quicker than her own brain could process them. She states that these foreign thoughts literally "cross the mind".

Apparently, when you speak, the nerves controlling the vocal chords, mouth and tongue are activated in proportion to the various directions and tensions each muscle is directed to move. These patterns occur whether or not the words are actually spoken aloud. The process of thought requires that you 'talk' to yourself in order for your mind to function consciously. This is called 'sub-vocal thought'. Just try thinking without 'speaking to yourself' if you don't believe it. The brain-wave patterns produced in this neurological process can apparently be read using some form of remote surveillance device and can reveal an individual's every thought.

The Los Angeles Times ran an article on 20 August 1992 entitled, "Cameras record images of thought" which states, "Scientists have been able to directly view human thought processes, tracing the complex patterns of electrical and chemical reactions to small clusters of brain cells. The researchers used a comparatively simple camera that records subtle differences in reflected light too small to be seen with the naked eye that flicker over the surface of the brain as thoughts occur. They said the technique will provide a much more precise way of mapping various thought processes and physical activities to specific parts of the brain." William H. Theodore, a neurologist at the National Institute of Neurological Diseases and Stroke commented, "It's a very interesting technique. The advantage is that it records very rapid changes in brain functions. I think it might enable surgeons to better map out speech regions."

This technique is now public knowledge, so would it really be at all surprising if DARPA, which has spent billions of dollars developing parallel-processing supercomputers, and on brainwave pattern-recognition research (purportedly for use in advanced fighter aircraft), had discovered how to apply this technology to more sinister operations? After all, this agency's entire mandate is to develop more effective weapons with which to arm the American defence and intelligence industries.


Combinations of electromagnetic radiation and hypnosis have also been the subject of intensive research. In 1974, researcher J. F. Shapitz said of one of his research proposals, "In this investigation it will be shown that the spoken word of the hypnotist may also be conveyed by modulated electromagnetic energy directly into the subconscious parts of the human brain i.e., without employing any technical devices for receiving or transcoding the messages and without the person exposed to such influence having a chance to control the information input consciously. It may be expected that they rationalise their behaviour and consider it to be undertaken out of their own free will." (emphasis added.)

Anybody investigating so-called 'channelling' phenomena would be wise to take this area of research into consideration. It is interesting to note the fact that the number of people who consider themselves 'channellers' has escalated rapidly since this type of research was conducted. It is uncanny how similar their messages are, regardless of which 'entity' they claim to be the source of their 'divine guidance'. I would suggest that any individual considering the content of "channelled" information should be discerning and critically evaluate whether the message they are "receiving" or considering is empowering (in a non-selfish sense) or would serve to invoke thought patterns beneficial to the New World Order.

The Sydney Morning Herald published an item on 21 March 1983, which adds weight to this hypothesis The article stated that a paper entitled, "The Soviet's are Invading the Human Mind" had been submitted to the newspaper's foreign editor by Dr. Nassim Abd El-Aziz Neweigy, Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Agriculture, Moshtohor Tukh-Kalubia, Egypt. It is worth quoting the article at length, even though its grammar is a little odd.

"The Soviets have manufactured the advanced computers, or even imported them, and fed them with the minute psychical particulars based on their studies about the anatomy and biology of the human body, and the studies about the anatomy, chemistry and electricity of the human brain. These computers were fed, as well, with the different languages and their meanings. The dialects of people have been fed from the nature through satellites. The Soviets started to feed the computers with objective programs".

"It seems that the Soviets recoursed to suicidal method with the human society by allocating an electronic ray on every mind for many persons in different societies. Such rays are fed from the memory of computers which stored a lot of data about the human being and the languages. These rays interlace and interweave with the natural thinking to form diffused artificial thought. Through such ferocious anti-humanitarian means, the extremist groups are fabricated, the troubles and bloody disturbances are instigated by advanced tele-means via satellites, in many countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and Latin America." Emphasis added.)

The editor of the column in which the article was printed even stated, "We think it makes points too important to ignore." I think that is a conservative way of putting it. One disturbing possibility, given all the information we have at hand, is that the individuals involved in this potential mega mind-control operation could themselves be programmed, and not even be aware that they are conducting such an operation.


In the December, 1980, edition of the US Army Journal, Military Review, an article by Lt Col. John B. Alexander entitled, "The New Mental Battlefield: Beam Me Up Spock", provided further insight into the technical capabilities now at the disposal of the controllers. He writes, "Several examples will demonstrate areas in which progress has been made The transference of energy from one organism to another The ability to heal or cause disease can be transmitted over a distance, thus inducing illness or death for no apparent cause Telepathic behaviour modification, which includes the ability to induce hypnotic states up to distances in excess of 1,000 kilometres, has been reported. The use of telepathic hypnosis also holds great potential. This capability could allow agents to be deeply planted with no conscious knowledge of their programming. In movie terms, the Manchurian Candidate lives and does not even require a phone call. Other mind-to-mind thought induction techniques are being considered. If perfected, this capability could allow the direct transference of thought via telepathy from one mind, or group of minds, to a selected target audience. The unique factor is that the recipient will not be aware that thoughts have been implanted from an external source. He or she will believe that thoughts are original." (Emphasis added.)

If it is possible to feed 'artificial thoughts' into the morphogenetic field via satellite, then mind control of the entire planet is possible. An individual's only resistance would be to constantly question the motivation behind their thoughts, and not act upon thoughts that they consider to be outside the boundaries of their own 'ethical and moral' boundaries. Once again, it is wise to consider how television, advertising, and various forms of social pressure are constantly being used to manipulate those boundaries.


Mind control technology is a reality. Some techniques are being used covertly on particular individuals, while others are used openly on the entire planet. Just go and switch your television on. There's the most effective one of all!

And while we shake our heads in disbelief at the horrors that are fed to us on the nightly news (or is that hourly?), don't forget those old principles, feedback, reinforcement, conditioning, whilst lamenting "Why do people do those horrible tings to each other?" It may be reasonable to consider that 'those people' may be getting more than a little help from our Big Brothers. After all, unless the Old World Order is made out to be, or turned into, the worst Order there could be, why else would we want a new one?

I will leave you with one final quote to consider. It was made by Zbigniew Brzezinski, former National Security Adviser to Jimmy Carter, in his book The Technotronic Society, which is almost a biblical text for advocates of the New World Order. Brzezinski founded the infamous trilateral Commission played a leading role in George Bush's 1988 election campaign as an adviser on foreign policy (seems unusual for a former Democrat National Security Adviser, doesn't it?), and is a tireless all-round promoter of the One-World Government/New World Order philosophy.

"In the technotronic society the trend would seem to be towards the aggregation of the individual support of uncoordinated citizens, easily within the reach of magnetic and attractive personalities effectively exploiting the latest communication techniques to manipulate emotions and control reason."


As Lt. Col. Alexander said in the summary of his Military Review article, "The information presented here will be considered by some to be ridiculous since it does not conform to their view of reality, but some people still believe the world is flat."
