Microchips In Our Brains

Mind Control Technology – How Far As It Gone?

By James Donahue

Scientists have been delving into the brains of both animals and humans for nearly half a century with thoughts of implanting "chips" designed to repair mental illness, deafness, the effects of stroke, dementia and even Alzheimer’s. And they have had some interesting success.

A recent article in the Journal of Neural Engineering tells of how researchers at the University of Southern California and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center have successfully developed a brain chip that appears to improve memory and decision-making in monkeys. The chip also seems to repair brain damage, or at least help the brain by-pass damaged cells and find new pathways to restore memory and cognizance.

Cochlear implants introduced in the 1980s have actually helped deaf people to "hear" via the telephone.

Yale University neuroscientist Jose Delgado, who has spent a career researching the science of brain control, has successfully used radio-equipped electrodes or "stimoceivers" implanted in the brain to alter the behavior of cats and monkeys and even induce sensations of euphoria, sexual arousal, sleepiness and rage in humans. In 1964 he used this technology to publically control a raging bull in a Spanish bullring.

But Delgado, whose work also received financial support from the military, had what many might conceive as a dark motive behind his research. In his book, Physical Control of the Mind: Toward a Psychyocivilized Society, published in 1969, he promoted the use of brain-stimulation to curb violent aggression and other social behaviors.

Delgado gave the following testimony before Congress in 1974: "We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated.

"The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain."

Has that day arrived? Can this explain the almost irrational behavior occurring among so many people packed in this overcrowded and polluted world? Why can’t we collectively work to improve our environment and our political leadership? Why must we be constantly at war with other nations for no logical reason? Have billions of people been secretly implanted with microchips that are electronically controlling their thoughts and behavior? And if this is so, who or what organization is working behind to curtain to push the buttons?

The Finnish journal Spekula published a report in 1999 by Dr. Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde that warned that scientists not only had developed the technology, but were using it in the United States and Sweden, without the knowledge of the people.

"In the 50’s and 60’s, electrical implants were inserted into the brains of animals and humans, especially in the U.S., during research into behavior modification and brain and body functioning. Mind control methods were used in attempt to change human behavior and attitudes. Influencing brain functions became an important goal of military and intelligence services," the story said.

It went on to say: "Thirty years ago brain implants showed up in X-rays the size of one centimeter. Subsequent implants shrunk to the size of a grain of rice. They were made of silicon, later still of gallium arsenide. Today they are small enough to be inserted into the neck or back, and also intravenously in different parts of the body using surgical operations, with or without the consent of the subject. It is now almost impossible to detect or remove them.

"It is technically possible for every newborn to be injected with a micro-chip, which could then function to identify the person for the rest of his or her life. Such plans are secretly being discussed in the U. S. without any public airing of the privacy issues involved," the Spekula story stated.

This story was published in 1999, just over 13 years ago. How far have military and government "leaders" allowed this weapon against human freedom of thought and action to go since that date?

The military classifies mind control technology among its non-lethal weapons. Any person who becomes classified as a threat to national security can be targeted. And with micro-chips now shrunken to extremes via the new science of nanotechnology, who can say that such chips are not injected into our systems when we get winter flu vaccinations, when hospitalized and submit to surgical or even get hooked up to the ever-present bag of fluids flowing into our veins?

All children in the United States are required to receive a series of vaccinations against basic life-threatening diseases before they are allowed to enter school.

It would not take long for the entire population to be secretly implanted with these sinister chips that serve to keep society under the thumb of any agency that seeks to control it.

While scientific journals insist that the human brain has been found to be too complex to control by a simple electronic impulse shot into an implanted chip, the Delgado experiments with animals and his testimony before Congress as early as 1974 suggest that the technology may even then have been perfected.

Conspiracy buffs might perceive this as the biggest threat to humanity and the most sinister plot to enslave the human race ever devised.
