What’s on Your Mind?

Magonia 58, January 1997

It is difficult to deny that something is happening to some of the many people claiming to have been abducted by the Greys; this has lead the more adventurous researchers to seek other possibilities as to what might be behind the phenomenon. Perhaps the most startling, frightening, and in many ways convincing of these is the mind control hypothesis.

This is by no means new, Jacques Vallee and others have been hinting in this direction since the late 1960′s; but in the last few years it has become increasingly evident that the suspicions of researchers such as Vallee, Walter Bowart and Martin Cannon may be disturbingly close to the truth.

Last year [1996] Tomorrow’s World (a BBC science programme) featured a man whose Parkinson’s Disease symptoms could be controlled by pressing a switch on a handset which in turn operated a tiny device implanted into his brain. No more shaking, no more tears. This is the friendly, caring side of the neural implant, but many people believe that dark forces are at work, trying to take over the minds of their targeted subjects via tiny objects inserted into various parts of the body.
These sinister controllers take many forms; some say that it’s the CIA or other shadowy intelligence outfits; others that it’s the secret world government, plotting for world domination; others still that it’s malicious aliens, the Greys, who use implants as tracking devices so that they can abduct their hapless victims anytime, anyplace and operate on them aboard their spacecraft. Sometimes the Greys are working for the government, sometimes the government is working for the Greys, and sometimes the government is working as the Greys, using remote hypnotic devices to trigger off the abduction fantasy as a disguise for what’s really going on.

Ex-soldier Timothy Mcveigh, prime suspect in last year’s Oklahoma City bombing, has recently announced that he has himself been sporting such an implant after being witness to many UFO encounters on his farm. One might expect this to be an elaborate attempt to plea insanity, but knowing the current climate in much of America, I wouldn’t be so sure. But it’s not just “over there”.

In a letter sent to Prime Minister John Major in 1992, Lennart Lindqvist, international secretary for a group dedicated to uncovering illicit mind control operations, wrote: “…we have become aware of several victims in Great Britain; reports received from exploited individuals refer to mental hospitals, police authorities and prisons as among the state institutions involved in the implantation of … electrodes of radio-transmitting crystals in people.”

He goes on to quote a letter from a Mr N’Tumba, a British victim: ” Concerning the brain transmitter in my head, it has benn performing without my knowledge or consent…What’s very outrageous is that I am sharing all my visions, thoughts, images, hearing etc. with people around me as the security services are engaging in a large scale propaganda drive to smear my character, background, behaviour, emotions and motives…I have no privacy at all….” (1).

Lindqvist states that X rays of Mr. N’Tumba’s brain , analysed by a Dr. Lindstrom, noted for his pioneering use of ultrasonics in neurosurgery, clearly show an object implanted into his left nostril as well as others blocking the oxygen flow to his brain.

You might be excused for dismissing Mr N’Tumba as a paranoid schizophrenic were it not for the fact that ordinary, respected people, all across America in all walks of life, are reporting similar things. These are the Abductees, and according to some researchers there are up to two million of them. One of these researchers, Dr. David Jacobs, is an associate professor of history at Temple University in Philadelphia; he writes; "Towards the end of the examination, the aliens either implant a small, round seemingly metallic object in the abductee’s ear, nose, or sinus cavity, or remove such an object. The object is…small, it usually is smooth, or has small spikes sticking out of it, or has holes in it.” (2) Jacobs notes that implants are left near the brain; subjects often wake up with ear or nose bleeds after an abduction and sometimes small objects will drop out when a person blows their nose.
Tense nervous headache? Always run down and irritable? Not feeling yourself? Well maybe that’s because you’re not yourself, rather, you are being controlled from somewhere else by someone else
Another researcher is Pulitzer prize winner and professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School, John Mack M.D. He says; ” I have myself studied a 1/2 to 3/4 inch thin, wiry object that was given to me by one of my clients… Elemental analyses and electronic microscopic photography revealed an interestingly twisted fibre consisting of carbon, silicon, oxygen, no nitrogen and traces of other elements. A nuclear biologist colleague said the specimen was not a naturally occurring biological object, but could be a manufactured fibre of some sort.” (3)

A suspected implant that had embarrassed its subject since his teenage years, was removed from a man’s penis in 1994 and examined by Massachusets Institute of Technology physicist David Pritchard. His conclusion was that the object appeared to be a collection of calcified cotton fibres, presumably gained from wearing starchy, tight underpants, that had somehow become embedded in the head of the penis. Mack, however, is not concerned: “…it would not be difficult for the aliens, in light of all the other seemingly miraculous things of which they appear capable, to adapt a small object to the human body by forming it along the lines of the body’s own chemistry. If that were the case, the analysis would yield nothing unusual.”(4) Dr. Mack’s alien allegations made him the subject of a serious inquiry by the school’s committee, but after 30 meetings it was decided not to sack him, but only to warn him not to let his enthusiasm for a subject overshadow academic principles and standards.

More recently, a November 1995 newspaper article mentions a California surgeon who operated, on video, on two abductees, and removed implants from both of them. One came from the big toe of a woman, the other from the back of a man’s hand; both objects were noticed during X rays for other minor injuries. The objects were seed sized, encased in a thick dark membrane and couldn’t be cut with a scalpel; one was T shaped. Once cut open they were found to contain tiny black pieces of a highly magnetic metal. There was no scarring or inflammation of the skin around the objects in either patient.(5)

Another mystery object was removed from an abductee in Ontario Canada in January of 1995; it came from “in back of her left ear”(6), was 1mm long and dark in colour. Analysed under an electron microscope it was found to contain primarily aluminium, titanium and silicon; which a technician with Pansonic Canada, stated “would be a transducer and can be used to transmit signals”(7).

The dark history of US, UK and USSR experiments into mind control and brain washing since the early ’60′s is well known and there are many books available on the subject.(8) In America projects such as Artichoke, Bluebird, Pandora, Mkdelta, Mksearch and Mkultra explored the erasure of memory, hypnotic resistance to torture, truth serums, post-hypnotic suggestion, rapid induction of hypnosis, electronic stimulation of the brain, non-ionizing radiation, microwave induction of intracerebral “voices,” and a host of even more disturbing technologies.
Mkultra is perhaps the best known of these; giving LSD to unwitting subjects including soldiers, students and mental patients, the CIA hoped to utilise its properties as a truth serum and in mind control . Acid guru Timothy Leary is quoted as saying; ” The entire LSD movement itself was sponsored originally by the CIA, to whom I give great credit. I would not be here today if it had not been for…the CIA psychologists”.(9) All such research was supposed to have stopped in the early ’70′s, but various sources close to the CIA, including Victor Marchetti who spent 14 years in its service, have stated that the work was just pushed even further underground and frequently surfaces in contemporary torture techniques abroad.

Experimentation with Electronic Stimulation of the Brain (ESB) via implants was a central part of this series of programs. Yale psychologist Jose Delgado developed a device in the early 1960′s known as a “stimoceiver”. He demonstrated this dramatically by implanting it into a bull’s brain and goading it electronically whilst standing in the ring. The bull charged him but stopped suddenly moments from impact; Delgado had caused it do so via a remote control! Bryan Robinson, of the Yerkes primate laboratory, has conducted remote ESB research on simians, causing mothers to ignore their offspring, despite the babies’ cries and turning submission into dominance, and vice-versa.
Dr Robert Heath, a neurosurgeon at Tulane University, claimed a world record after implanting 125 electrodes into a subject’s body and brain, and subsequently spent hours stimulating the man’s pleasure centres. Both scientists concluded that ESB could control memory, impulses, feelings, invoke hallucinations, fear and pleasure. Heath, and many of his colleagues, considered ESB a potential “cure” for homosexuality and other “socially troublesome persons”; this could, of course, be you.. Joseph A. Meyer, of the National Security Agency, America’s most secretive defence group, has proposed implanting electronic tags into all those arrested, of any crime, in order to monitor their behaviour at all times. He uses New York’s Harlem district as his model in his proposal.

The implant, then, is no fantasy, but how far have its potential implications been implemented? It has often been reported that the CIA has mastered a technology call RHIC-EDOM. RHIC means “Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Control.” EDOM stands for “Electronic Dissolution of Memory.” Allegedly these techniques can remotely induce hypnotic trance, deliver suggestions to the subject, induce feelings and emotions and erase all memory for both the instruction period and the act which the subject is asked to perform. They might operate using advanced implant technologies but are such implants even necessary?
Many shops use messages transmitted at high frequencies above the hearing threshold to combat shoplifting, some report a success rate of up to 80%. A Dr. Sharp, a Project Pandora researcher for the US army, ran experiments whereby the human brain picked up words that were transmitted via microwaves, thus bypassing the ear. Dr James Lin of Wayne State University discusses the possibilities of using such techniques to aid the deaf, but comments; “the capability of communicating directly with humans by pulsed microwaves is obviously not limited to the field of therapeutic medicine.”(10)

In the early 1970′s science fiction writer Philip K. Dick and spoon-bender Uri Geller (along with his then mentor Andrija Puharich) both reported contact with what appeared to be a non-human machine intelligence orbiting the earth. Dick called it VALIS, Geller called his SPECTRA. Were they both singled out for microwave communication experiments, or both just equally insane? Further computerised contact was described by Dorothy Burdick in her 1982 book Such Things are Known
She relates: “Laser-projected voices tell me, “You are doing what you want to do,” but I am never free of their broadcast stimuli which I can feel, and microwave or ultrasonic frequencies of which I may be totally unaware. I cannot be sure that I am not really in pain due to natural causes. I only feel unaccountable changes in mood such as depression, euphoria or relief.(11)

The alien abductees report a number of things that could be induced via such devices; buzzing and voices, missing time, inexplicable emotions in inappropriate circumstances (e.g. love for an alien that is raping them), loss of self control, telepathic communication and memories of films projected onto screens. Many report the disturbance of electrical objects in their presence, perhaps a side effect of such implant technologies. Could the whole abduction scenario be a carefully manipulated hypnotic cover for experimentation by government or military intelligence services? Certainly many abductees have reported seeing human military personnel during their experiences (one was actually identified as a human doctor), and others have seen helicopters suddenly become UFOs and vice-versa.
Dr. Micheal Persinger, well known for his views that the abduction experience is triggered by exposure of the brain’s temporal lobes to electromagnetic fields, was once employed by the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency to remotely induce vomiting in enemy soldiers, which he did successfully. John Mack has also been linked to Mkultra related projects; there is, undeniably, a close relationship between the military and intelligence agencies and UFO phenomenon, but it seems as far fetched as the idea of the Greys themselves to blame them for everything. Then again, if the aliens are all powerful, as they certainly seem to be, why would they need to use implants at all?
So, confronted with the potential reality of such devices we can only wonder how far their use has actually been taken, and, ultimately, who is in control of them. Or, to put it another way, who might be in control of us?


Just prior to uploading this page [January 1997]I found the following posted on Dan Geib’s excellent UFO Folklore site. The source is researcher Richard Boylan.
“Among documents recently obtained from the White House under the Freedom of Information Act is an interesting piece of correspondence between former Naval Intelligence Commander and Human Potential Foundation director Scott Jones, Ph.D. and White House Presidential Science Advisor John Gibbons, Ph.D. In a February 17, 1994 letter, following up on a February 4 White House meeting between Lawrence Rockefeller, Dr. Jones, and Dr. Gibbons, Scott Jones wrote:

“Whatever Roswell [UFO crash revelation] turns out to be, it is only the opening round. I urge you to take another look at the UFO Matrix of Belief that I provided you last year. My mention of mind-control technology at the February 4 meeting was quite deliberate. Please be careful about this. There are reasons to believe that some governmental group has interwoven research about this [mind-control] technology with alleged UFO phenomena. If that is correct, you can expect to run into early resistance when inquiring about UFOs, not because of the UFO subject, but because that has been used to cloak research and applications of mind-control activity.”

If this proves to be a real document, then perhaps the ideas outlined in this piece may not be so outlandish after all. By now it is probably to late to counter the firmly entrenched beliefs of the ET community, and perhaps this is what “The Controllers” always wanted. I suspect this one will run and run…
