The "Current" state of Mind Control

by Hari Heath

Mind control can be many things. Disciplining a child; selling a product through effective advertising; managing public education; imposing a coercive legal system; programming a given population with repetitive media information while excluding or diminishing alternative sources; torturing a prisoner until they confess to a crime they did not commit; or, more positively, engaging in a spiritual or mental practice which puts the mind in a peaceful, harmonious state.

For good or ill, mind control is the act of causing the mind to function according to a desired outcome.

In the history of human governance, almost everything has been tried to bring the will of the people in line with the will of the governing class. Fear or trauma-based conditioning from wars, public executions, to prisons has brought on the consequences of non-compliance. Feudal systems, from the more ancient overlords and serfs, to our current tax-and-regulate schemes, have laid humanity's essential productivity, hearth and home, quite profitably at the feet of the feudal governors. Benevolence, whether promised or actual, is the more placid avenue of control. From medieval breadlines to welfare, tax credits and research grants, the direction of society has been controlled by those who hand out the dole.

Ultimately in this age, the goal of upper echelon government operators is to control the mind and achieve "consent of the governed." Wars are fought to bend the will of the opponent. Eventually, war is terminated by either annihilation or treaty-a formal consent of the survivors.

New technology now offers tools to bend the will and the consequences for humanity are as far-reaching and serious as the use of the atomic bomb. Early research began over a century ago on devices to manipulate the mind. In the last few decades the "current" state of mind control has become well developed and is potentially devastating, considering who the primary holder of this new technology is: the military, the Department of Justice (DOJ) and their minions in the police state.

The recently released book, Controlling the Human Mind: The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance, by Dr. Nick Begich, the co-author of Angels Don't Play This HAARP, gives a telling report on electronic and frequency warfare.

What it reveals is shocking enough, but what is most shocking is what it doesn't reveal. Dr. Begich's book is largely a compilation of excerpts and analyses of two-and- three-decades old military and government documents, patents and similarly aged research reports. This is the unclassified stuff. Much of the current state of government's mind control apparatus is classified and is likely to remain so until well after it has achieved antiquity.

Chemistry and bioenergetics

Dr. Begich's work begins with a simple observation: Much of what we know about human health is chemistry, or the biochemical side of the human equation. Present medicine is focused on drug therapies. The emerging science of bioenergetics-the neural, magnetic and bioelectric component of our organism-has not received the same funding and focus as the more profitable pharmaceutical approach to health.

A relative handful of bioenergetic scientists have diligently applied themselves over the decades and can now produce some amazing results. Much of this new science is based on the recognition that various organs produce or respond to certain resonant frequencies. Detection can be accomplished by determining the body's frequency codes. The application of certain frequencies with specific modulation and pulsation can cause effects in the many bio-circuits of the body. The effects depend on many details that are naturally present in the realm of bioenergetic science, the devices used to achieve those effects and the intent of the device's operator.

Much of bioenergetic science has been focused on understanding the operation of the mind and healing the body. But the discoveries of those in the healing arts have not gone unnoticed by those engaged in the warfare and social control professions. The practical difference between these disparate interests is only a matter frequency choices, delivery systems and intent.

At the core

The level at which these effects begin are described by Dr. Begich: "Within living cells proteins exist that have specific three dimensional physical characteristics and forms. The form of proteins arise out of their unique order of amino acids, electrical charge and polarity. Sequences of amino acids have been found to coil or wind themselves into a helical spiraling shape called an alpha-helix. In electrical terms, coils and helices are inductors, transducers and antennas. These can change shape and act as on/off switches or perform binary functions, which are required for any computer to work whether it is your desktop or the human body functioning as a super computer. These coils and helixes are biological circuits serving the same kinds of functions as inorganic, nonliving electrical circuits...the use of light, sound, microwave, radio, television networks, computer systems or power grids, all of through which a pulse-modulated signal can be introduced, can be used to create a deliberate effect, or a side effect, impacting living organisms in neutral, positive or negative ways."

Brain states

Dr. Begich describes the brain states and their frequencies: "The first, beta waves, (13-35 Hertz, or pulses-per-second) are associated with normal activity. The high end of this range is associated with stress or agitated states, which can impair thinking or reasoning skills. The second group, alpha waves (8-12 Hertz), can indicate relaxation. Alpha frequencies are ideal for learning and focused mental functioning.

"The third, theta waves (4-7 Hertz), indicate mental imagery, access to memories and internal mental focus. This state is often associated with young children, behavioral modification and sleep/dream states.

"The last, ultra slow, delta waves (.5-3 Hertz), are found when a person is in deep sleep. The general rule is that the brain's predominant wave frequency will be lowest, in terms of pulses per second, when relaxed and highest when people are most alert or agitated."

As a simple explanation of the mind alteration process, Dr. Begich offers the following: "External stimulation of the brain by electromagnetic means can cause the brain to be entrained or locked into phase with an external signal generator. Predominant waves can be driven or pushed into new frequency patterns by external stimulation. In other words, the signal driver or impulse driver entrains the brain, overriding the normal frequency codes, and causing changes in the brain waves; which then cause changes in brain chemistry; which then cause changes in brain outputs in the form of thoughts, emotions or physical conditions. As you are driven, so you arrive..."

How far will they go?

Dr. Begich quotes John Alexander, author of Psychic Warrior, who worked at Los Alamos National Laboratory, "There are weapons systems that operate on the power of the mind and whose lethal capacity has already been demonstrated...The psychotronic weapon would be silent, difficult to detect, and would require only a human operator as a power source."

That was a dozen years ago. From a similar era: An "RF weapon currently under development is the high-powered, very low frequency (VLF) modulator. Working in the 20-35 KHz spectrum, the frequency emits from a 1-2 meter antenna dish to form a type of acoustic bullet. The weapon is especially convenient because the power level is easily adjustable. At its low setting, the acoustic bullet causes physical discomfort-enough to deter most approaching threats. Incrementally increasing the power nets an effect of nausea, vomiting and abdominal pains. The highest settings can cause a person's bones to literally explode internally. Aimed at the head, the resonating skull bones have caused persons to hear 'voices'. Researched by the Russian military more extensively than the U. S., the Russians actually offered the use of such a weapon to the FBI in the Branch Davidian standoff to make them think that 'God' was talking to them. Concerned with the unpredictability of what the voices might actually say to the followers, the FBI declined the offer."

The 1987 Report on the Attorney General's Conference on Less Than Lethal Weapons stated, "participants also discussed the use of various wavelengths and forms of administration of electromagnetic energy as a non-lethal weapon. A substantial amount of preliminary research has been conducted in this area...One conference participant noted that scientific knowledge of human physiology is progressing to the point where it may soon be possible to target specific physiologic systems with specific frequencies of electromagnetic radiation to produce much more subtle and fine-tuned effects than those produced by photic driving [using frequency pulsed light]...there is some evidence that sustained, extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation can produce nausea or disorientation."

Dr. Begich revealed, "In November, 1993, about 400 scientists gathered at John Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab to discuss their work in developing non-lethal weapons technologies, including radio frequency radiation (RF), electromagnetic pulse (EMP), ELF fields, lasers and chemicals. The meeting was classified, and no detailed reports were ever publicly released. According to the press statements and the conference agenda (which was released) the programs developing the technologies had made significant advances. Enough advancement had been made to establish a secrecy veil and classify the conference. This conference took the whole program of non-lethal weapons a step forward by bringing the leading experts together for this event. The conference was sponsored by Los Alamos National Laboratory and focused on both military and law enforcement uses for these technologies."

What will we ever know?

How far has the federal government departed from the six articles in the Constitution and its two-dozen or so grants of federal power? Dr. Begich presents some telling details:

"In 2004 the United States government spent $7.2 billion to classify 15.6 million documents, which is almost double the 8.6 million records so classified in 2001. On the other end of the spectrum, in 2004, there were 28.4 million documents declassified down from 100 million in 2001, and the 204 million documents declassified in 1997. In 2006 even more significant information is held and never released while piles of files are classified, further limiting government accountability."

When will we ever know what government has done to us in our lifetimes? What kind of bureaucratic army handles millions of documents a year and how does a government that classifies millions of documents a year "establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty?"

Domestic "policy" for "adversaries?"

"On July 21, 1994, Dr. Christopher Lamb, Director of Policy Planning, issued a draft Department of Defense directive which would establish a policy for non-lethal weapons. The policy was to have taken effect January 1, 1995, and formally connected the military's non-lethal research to civilian law enforcement agencies.

"In interviews with members of the Defense Department, the development of this policy was confirmed. In those February 1995 discussions, it was discovered that these policies were internal and not subject to any public review process. In its current draft form, the policy gives highest priority to development of those technologies most likely to get dual use, i.e. law enforcement and military uses. According to this document, non-lethal weapons are to be used on the government's domestic 'adversaries'. The definition of 'adversary' has been significantly enlarged in the policy:

"The term 'adversary' is used above in its broadest sense, including those who are not declared enemies but who are engaged in activities we wish to stop. This policy does not preclude legally authorized domestic use of the non-lethal weapons by United States military forces in support of law enforcement."

The policy also clarifies that, "it is important that the public understand that just as lethal weapons do not achieve perfect lethality, neither will 'non-lethal' weapons always be capable of precluding fatalities and undesired collateral damage."

Early reports

A 1986 USAF report suggests, "The potential applications of artificial electromagnetic fields are wide ranging and can be used in many military or quasi-military situations... Some of these potential uses include dealing with terrorist groups, crowd control, controlling breaches of security at military installations, and antipersonnel techniques in tactical warfare. In all of these cases the EM systems would be used to produce mild to severe physiological disruption or perceptual distortion or disorientation. In addition, the ability of individuals to function could be degraded to such a point that they would be combat ineffective. Another advantage of electromagnetic systems is that they can provide coverage over large areas with a single system. They are silent and countermeasures to them may be difficult to develop..."

A Southwest Research Institute report stated in 1982 that: "Biotechnology research must consider the significant advances that can be made in electromagnetic radiation weapons and defenses that could be in place by the year 2000... Research is first needed to develop and apply methods for assessing pulsed RFR (radio frequency radiation) effects. Techniques are needed for depositing RFR at selected organ sites. Mathematical models and physical measurement capabilities must be developed to track, real time, RFR energy distributions within these organ sites as a function of physiological processes such as diffusion and blood flow. These studies will require prudent extrapolation of physical and physiological data obtained from laboratory animals to humans in operational environments."

And this was four and a score years ago!

The LIDA machine

In the mid-1960s, the LIDA machine used by the Soviets to interrogate U. S. POWs during the Vietnam War was captured. A powerful technology for its time, it advanced the U.S. government's interest in such devices. The LIDA machine's oscillating electromagnetic signals used a strobe light and auditory signals to entrain the prisoner's brain, putting them in a highly suggestive state where they were more willing to give up information.


Dr. Begich presents a number of research reports and patents which detail methods to: Deliver subliminal signals using very low or very high (inaudible) audio frequencies; reduce pain using pulsed electromagnetic signals; develop hearing with microwave energy; remotely monitor and alter brain waves; pulsed ultrasound to create sensory experiences; and beam focused Hypersonic Sound (HSS) which can directly target individuals up to 500 yards away, disabling them with decibels.

One of the more astounding elements of "progress" that Dr. Begich reports is that, "Researchers said they took a key first step toward creating electronic microchips that use living brain cells. The researchers said they had learned how to place embryonic brain cells in desired spots on silicone or glass chips and then induce the brain cells to grow along the desired path."

Another report, also from the early 1990s, states, "Scientists have succeeded for the first time in establishing a colony of human brain cells that divide and grow in laboratory dishes." This may pave the way to the "possibility that both brain cells and computer hardware could be built in the laboratories creating, perhaps, the first biologically augmented computers."

Who are these people?

Dr. Herman P. Schwan, a Nazi scientist during World War II, was brought into this country under "Operation Paperclip" and put to use at the Biological Warfare Laboratories at Fort Detrick, Maryland. As late as 1995, he was working at the University of Pennsylvania. He was a principle reviewer and primary contributor to the Air Force's Radiofrequency Radiation Dosimetry Handbook from 1986. The handbook compiles five decades of research on mostly electromedical healing devices with the mathematics for calculating the RF radiation dosage effects in animals and humans. Two pages of the 29-page bibliography in the handbook cite Schwan's work. The difference between electromedical healing and warfare is only a matter of frequency and dosimetry.

Mankind Research Unlimited, Inc. (MRU) was a company involved in psychic and mind control research from the 1960s to the 80s. MRU and its affiliates "were researching psychic warfare, bioenergetic fields and the manipulation of energy in order to affect people."

They officially disavowed any connection with the CIA but much of their research, if not connected, was a parallel effort. The over 30 research subject areas for MRU listed by Dr. Begich are largely positive, healthy and enhancing of the human being, but the same information, in the wrong hands, can also be used to devastate and destroy.

Professor Michael Persinger conducted research for over 20 years in Ontario, using magnetic resonance to produce mystical experiences, out-of-body sensations and paranormal phenomena. He also studied the effects of ELF on memory and brain function. His research reveals that, "the brain can be altered with very little power, including that which is released from the natural geomagnetic activity of the Earth or via contemporary communications networks...within a very narrow set of variables, we can stimulate the sense of smell, taste, touch, sight or hearing in a manner that would not permit us to see the difference between the laboratory created experience and using the Earth's natural energy fields a signal could be generated at power levels consistent with the Earth's and would be hidden in the 'noise' created by the many manmade background radiating sources of energy."

A grand scale

The HAARP project in Alaska, which Dr. Begich has previously written about, can be exactly what Dr. Persinger suggested on a very large scale. Dr. Begich reports, "This capability exists today through the use of systems which can stimulate the ionosphere to return a pulsed signal, which at the right frequency, can override normal brain functions...energies used in HAARP were controllable and in some applications would be pulsed in the 1-20 Hertz range."

A chemical/RFR interface

Among the proposed military applications is the idea that biological or chemical agents could be used in conjunction with RFR techniques on targeted groups (see adversary definition above). "The idea expressed here is that depositing small amounts of chemicals in a person's body, in amounts below normal levels where negative effects are known to occur, will ensure they have no perceivable effect until radio frequency radiation (RFR) is introduced. Once introduced, the RFR creates physiological reactions, which are detrimental to the individual host. This would allow individuals who are not exposed to the chemicals to then enter the area of the RFR without harm to their own bodies. When an operator tunes the RFR in just the right way, changes are caused in the energy state of atoms, which cause chemical reactions in the body, which in turn manifest physiological or psychological changes, all based on frequency codes."

Hearing without ears

From hypersonic sound beams where the targeted person reports "voices in their head" from hundreds of yards away, to pulse-modulating microwaves to carry a "voice" directly to the auditory cortex, hearing without ears is not only possible, but patented. Dr. Begich explains, "This area is one of the most important because it points to the ultimate weapons of political control-the ability to place information directly into the human brain, bypassing all normal filtering mechanisms. Electronic telepathy."

In 1961, Dr. Allen Frey wrote, "Our data to date indicates that the human auditory system can respond to electromagnetic energy in at least a portion of the radio frequency spectrum. Further, this response is instantaneous and occurs at low power densities....for example....with power densities 1/60 of the standard maximum safe level for continuous exposure."

By 1962 Dr. Frey reported that, "Using extremely low average power densities of electromagnetic energy, the perception of sounds was induced in normal and deaf humans."

Dr. Begich's chapter "Auditory Effects" reveals this is a well developed area with numerous patents, which have long since expired. Where are we today?


There are useful sides to this area of technology, depending on how it is used. World-class athletes push the envelope of their particular area of endeavor by small percentage points of performance. The exceptional physical abilities of our humanness have, for the most part, already been reached. But it is estimated that most of us will never use more than five per cent of our brain's potential and the exceptionally gifted may use as much as 15 percent. Dr. Begich offers some insight to the practical and moral possibilities:

"If we begin to think about things like a direct download of information into the brain for learning subjects like mathematics and languages these new technologies will be very useful. These kinds of subjects do not require that value judgments or belief systems be applied to the information being retained and learned."

"Using a direct download of information would be a fantastic way to learn certain subjects. Other subjects would not be suggested using these methods because these other study areas are not formula driven. These subjects require value judgments that conform to existing belief systems being applied to reasoning. These new technologies, in some cases, bypass the conscious mind and deliver the information so it is accepted without question by the subconscious and acted upon. This is a very important point when we consider how much value-filled information comes to us in public education systems [including the media]. State controlled curriculums and compulsory education present real problems because these systems design programs that they 'believe' represent the state of knowledge and activity of culture. The question is: 'Who will control the input for our children?' Do we even have the right to use these technologies before we are 'adults' and able to make our own value judgments based on what our conscious minds create? We must each be in total control of our inputs, experiences, and our personal belief systems, free of any interference. This is called liberty."

The positive side

Part Two of Dr. Begich's book discusses "Increasing Our Human Potentials"-the positive uses of this emerging technology. This was the basis of such research until the warfare world commandeered it with massive funding and the "CLASSIFIED" stamp.

Biofeedback, kinesiology, chemical interactions, Schumann's Resonance, electro-acupuncture, light and sound techniques, electro-cranial stimulation, Hemi-sync (r) and the Earthpulse Soundwave TM , are but some of the promising technologies detailed in the latter part of Dr. Begich's book.

Unlike the military/police state's high-powered dish array delivery systems, the healing/enhancement side is very low power-often from 5 to 200 microamperes. And the ways the brain can be affected can be very subtle. Robert Monroe's Hemi-sync uses beat frequencies to entrain the brain. Using stereo headphones, if you apply, for example, 15,000 cycles per second sound waves in one ear and 15,007 in the other ear they cancel within the brain, leaving a beat frequency of 7 Hertz and create an Alpha brain wave state-the ideal state for learning.

The Minneapolis School District set up a charter school for attention deficit disorder children. Using biofeedback apparatus for 30-40 one-hour sessions, the children were able to learn to put themselves into a productive Alpha learning state, eventually without using the apparatus. Most of the children were on Ritalin, which became no longer necessary. Can you see why bioenergetic solutions are not well funded except for warfare? The Pharma-cartel can lose a lot of business when this technology replaces their chemical approach with reusable hardware.

Nothing new

The antiquity of bioenergetic technology was revealed by the "Iceman," discovered in the German/Italian Alps some years back. The "autopsy" on this 5,000-year-old man discovered that he had tattoos that directly correlated with acupuncture points and meridians. Acupuncture is generally considered to have originated with the ancient Chinese. How did it appear 5,000 years ago in the Alps?

Pointer Plus

From 5,000 years ago to today, Pointer Plus is a no needles electro-acupuncture with two functions. First it locates acupuncture points accurately by measuring the differences in the electrical properties of the skin. Then it can be used to send energy into the body to stimulate the point it has located. Dr. Begich explains: "When a point is found the device makes a beeping sound and a flashing light. The more rapid the flash and even the sound, the more balanced is the detected point. By depressing a trigger mechanism, energy is sent into that point. It is perceived very lightly, almost like the dusting of a feather on the surface of the skin. It is a slight pulsating sensation. If it's more than that, the power is too high and it becomes uncomfortable. Once treated, the flashing light appears to be on, rather than flashing and the sound is steady."

Is Dr. Crusher's technology from Star Trek here today?

Earth pulse

Schumann's Resonance, discovered in the 1950s, reveals that the Earth has an oscillation or pulse of 7.83 hertz, an alpha state frequency ideal for human learning and creativity. In our natural and barefoot state we could tune into this frequency just by being here. Now we are often insulated by our footwear and subject to the 60 Hertz waves of the AC electrical power that pulses into the appliances and lighting of our modern world. Is it any wonder that we appear to have so many cognitively comatose but otherwise "functional" humans surrounding us?

Light and sound

Light and sound devices such as the Sirius are not much more than a Walkman with headphones and glasses that you can use to program your brain state for learning or other enhancement. Electro-Cranial devices produce similar results, but require actual contact points and contact gels-slightly messy.

The Hemi-sync uses sound to create the binaural beat which balances the brain hemispheres and induces the desired brain state. There are over 200 versions on CD to affect attention deficit disorders, stress, enhanced learning, meditation, speed learning, hypertension, pain management, out-of-body-experiences and vivid imagery, to name a few.

The Holophon and Earthpulse Soundwave technologies use piezoelectric transducers to create the binaural beat when placed on the head. Rather than using the ears directly, the transducers effect bioenergetic energy transfer directly, or they can be combined with a headset for "full range audio."

Get the book!

Get the book; read it, and stop laughing at all those people with the tin foil hats. Maybe they knew something we just couldn't or wouldn't conceive of at the time. This already lengthy article only begins to detail what Dr. Begich has compiled in Controlling the Human Mind. It is extensively documented with footnotes on nearly every page. Those serious about the subject can launch their inquiries from there.

As Dr. Begich says, "This is the century of the brain, which ultimately is about the mind and consciousness itself. We are opening the gateway to a deeper understanding of the essence of who we are, who we will choose to be and who future generations will become."
