Mind Control in the 21st Century


by Jethro Valdez

Conspiracy Theory?   “Mind control” is a topic commonly perceived as “conspiracy theory” or “X-Files” fare. That is, it is seen as possibly not “real,” and certainly not something about which one should be “overly” concerned.

This attitude at least partially arises from the widespread belief or assumption that the human brain is so complicated—(“the most complex entity in the universe” is a common formulation)—that it has not, and perhaps cannot, be comprehended in any depth.

One writer, for example, describes the brain as of “perhaps infinite” complexity, while another, David Brooks of the New York Times, writes that it is “probably impossible” that “a map of brain activity” could reveal mental states such as emotions and desires.

Similarly, Andrew Sullivan, blogger and former editor of The New Republic, opines that neuroscience is still in its “infancy,” and that we have only begun “scratching the surface” of the human brain, and links to a New Yorker piece in support of that position.

And the cover story for the October 2004 issue of Discovery Magazine entitled “The Myth Of Mind Control” advises the reader that while mind control is a “familiar science-fiction” staple, there is little reason for real concern, because actually deciphering the “neural code” would be akin to figuring out other “great scientific mysteries” such as the “origin of the universe and of life on Earth,” and is therefore hardly likely.

According to the article, as the brain is “the most significant mystery in science” and quite possibly “the hardest to solve,” mind control remains at worst a distant concern.

The underlying idea seems to be that sophisticated mind control is unlikely without understanding the brain; and we do not understand the brain.


Understanding the “Neural Code”

Of course, one might question the notion that a full understanding of the “neural code” is a prerequisite for mind control since it is not always necessary to know how something works for it to be effective. Nonetheless, the assumption that the brain is so complex that little progress has been made in “solving” it is itself incorrect.

As neuroscientist Michael Persinger has said, the “great mythology” of the brain is that it is “beyond our understanding; no it’s not.”

In fact, according to inventor and “futurist” Ray Kurzweil, “very detailed mathematical models of several dozen regions of the human brain and how they work….” had already been developed over a decade ago.

[the_ad id="497740"]

Kurzweil also said at that time that science is “further along in understanding the principles of operation of the human brain than most people realize….” While the brain may be complicated, “it’s not that complicated (emphasis added).”


Similarly, an Air Force report from 1995, in a section entitled “Biological Process Control,” predicts that before 2050 “… [w]e will have achieved a clear understanding of how the human brain works, how it really controls the various functions of the body, and how it can be manipulated…:”

One can envision the development of electromagnetic energy sources … that can couple with the human body in a fashion that will allow one to prevent voluntary muscular movements, control emotions (and thus actions), produce sleep, transmit suggestions, interfere with … memory, produce an experience set, and delete an experience set.

As disturbing as such “predictions” may be, is it possible that technologies to prevent (or perhaps even impel) muscular movement, control emotions, transmit suggestions, delete memories, create false memories, and so on, have already been developed?

Certainly, even a cursory review of the “open literature” reveals that various sophisticated mind control technologies already exist.

Indeed, it is rather shocking to realize how advanced mind control technology was, even several decades ago.

For example, there is the 1974 invention of Robert G. Malech for which a patent was granted in 1976 and assigned to defense contractor Dorne & Margolin, Inc.—for a method of “remotely monitoring and altering brain waves.”

Moreover, experiments conducted over thirty years ago at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI) showed that basic mind reading from EEG readouts was possible, revealing the existence of “a non-symbolic language” of “brain-wave patterns” which could be deciphered and translated.

Indeed, by the late 1960s ‘remote control’ of the human brain—accomplished without the implantation of electrodes—was well on its way to being realized.”

A means of stimulating a brain “by creating an electrical field completely outside the head” was developed,> and it was discovered that electric pulses could stimulate the brain using far less energy than previously “thought … effectual in the old implanting technique.”

Not surprisingly, with such developments arose legitimate fears of a future world where “human robots” would perform the bidding of the “military.”

And one source quotes a 1970s Pentagon agency report as saying that it will likely be possible in “several years” to induce sounds and words directly into the brain (bypassing the ears), as well as to use “combinations of frequencies and other signal characteristics to produce other neurological effects….,

The report notes that the Soviets had observed “various changes in body chemistry” and “functioning” of the brain from the exposure of the brain to various frequencies.

Also mentioned are studies at MIT showing that “magnetic brain waves can be picked up … and amplified as if the brain were a radio transmitter,” no implants or electrodes required.

Finally, an article from 1981 describes how “microwave generators” placed in appropriate locations and transmitting at low energy would create “interference patterns” out of the interaction with brainwaves (brain electricity).

These interference patterns “could then be built up by computer into a three-dimensional moving picture of mental processes”—in other words, a remote “thought scanner” (and tracking device) could be developed.

Recent “Advances”

Subjected to outside influences
Subjected to outside influences

In light of these past developments, it is perhaps rather surprising to read modern articles describing supposedly recent innovations in “mind reading” and mind control technology – in which it is sometimes claimed, for example, that scanners, electrodes and proximity to the subject is required to read and “control” minds.

Such claims reflect an apparent failure of the science of “mind control” to progress as one might have expected considering the presumed interest, as well as the spectacular rate of advancement of science and technology in general in recent decades.

Of course, it would not be all that surprising if mind control technology has advanced considerably, but that research has been carried out in secret for reasons of “national security.”

CIA affiliated scientists have certainly conducted much research which they have been prohibited from sharing with their peers,and inventions that implicate “national security” are routinely suppressed under Pentagon secrecy orders.

Also, it might seem desirable to hide research programs which sometimes “require” relaxation of ethical standards, such as that of informed consent.

That said, even ignoring the likely existence of a “secret science” of mind control, recent public advancements are quite troubling in their own right.

Some examples:

"New connections" are being made all the time.
“New connections” are being made all the time.

1) In 2004, 25,000 rat neurons on a glass dish learned to fly an F-22 jet fighter simulator.

After scientists placed the neurons on the dish, the neurons quickly began “to reconnect themselves, forming a living neural network—a brain.”

The lead scientist added that “one day,” though of course a “long way off,” disembodied brains might actually be used to fly drones, though the current experiment was merely to enhance knowledge of how the brain works, and possibly provide “clues to brain dysfunction.”

2) In August 2013, researchers revealed that “miniature” human brains had been grown in the laboratory.

As is typical, any negative implications or reasons for worry were minimized, while possible “therapeutic” uses were highlighted. Thus, the breakthrough was hailed as a great opportunity to understand “developmental defects.” Though the writer does mention “the spectre of what the future might hold,” the reader is reassured that the research is “primitive territory”—though one researcher did comment on the “undesirability” of growing larger laboratory brains.

3) On July 1, 2013, a magazine reported a claim by neuroscientist Sergio Canavero that it was now feasible to transplant the head of one human to the body of another and reattach the spinal cord.

4) Scientists have reconstructed random images viewed by subjects, from fMRI brain scans, in research that “hints” that “one day” scientists might be able to “access dreams, memories and imagery….”

5) The brains of two rats have been linked, such that one, located in North Carolina, responded “telepathically” to the thoughts of the other, located in Brazil.

The second rat’s brain processed signals from the first rat’s brain, delivered over the internet, as if they were its own. The scientist speculated about the “future possibility” of a “biological computer, in which numerous brains are connected….”

6) A brain-to-brain interface has been created, allowing humans to move a rat’s tail just by thinking about it.

Readers are told that while it is not yet possible to “communicate brain to brain with our fellow humans … we may be on our way to … controlling” other species. But, since it is “still very early days” the writer “hope(s)” that any ethical concerns can be “iron(ed) out.” Of note, the study used focused ultrasound to deliver impulses to the rat’s brain.

7) Continuing the ultrasound “theme”: Focused pulses of low intensity low frequency ultrasound, transmitted non-invasively through the skull to the human brain, have been shown capable of producing, not only pain, but also sound, as well as evoking “sensory stimuli.”

Accordingly, a lab with a “close working relationship” with DARPA, the Department of Defense, and U.S. Intelligence communities, has been looking into using pulsed ultrasound to encode “sensory data onto the cortex”; in other words, producing hallucinations through the remote and direct stimulation of brain circuits.

Possibilities are the ability to “remotely control brain activity” and the “creation of artificial memories.” Even Sony has gotten in on the act, patenting a device for using ultrasound to produce hallucinations—again described as “transmitting sensory data directly into the human brain.”

Most troublingly, one source recently alleged that the NSA is using this ultrasound technology to target individuals through their smartphones.

8) A researcher was able to make a fellow researcher in a different office move his finger just by thinking about it, in the “first” demonstration of a human brain-to-brain interface.

9) A low cost means of tracking people, even through walls, has been developed. While in the past individuals could be tracked anywhere by the “military” using radar technology, this technology might enable entities with fewer resources to track people as well.

How much live nano testing has gone on?

10) Scientists have remote controlled a worm by implanting magnetic nanoparticles into it, and then exposing the animal to a “radiofrequency magnetic field” which stimulated its neurons. The scientists suggest that their research could lead to “innovative cancer treatments” and “improved diabetes therapies,” as well as

11)  Americans can now be spied on in their homes through their internet-connected appliances, according to (former) CIA Director David Petraeus.

Petraeus made his statements at about the same time a huge microchip company, ARM, unveiled new processors which will connect home appliances such as refrigerators, washers and driers to the internet.

12)  LED lights have been ostensibly pushed for their efficiency over traditional bulbs. However, LED lights are also semiconductors capable of inducing “biological and behavior effects.”

“Breakaway” Science?

While the aforementioned public developments are quite concerning, the reality is they may not actually represent the true state of the art in “mind control” technology.

It would not be that surprising, after all, for a domain with national security implications to at some point in its development branch off onto separate “tracks,” one public and the other “hidden.”

If such a bifurcation were to occur, advancements made in secret would not necessarily be incorporated into the public sphere. Eventually perhaps, innovations and breakthroughs would result in the development of an essentially new, covert science.

An example of a domain in which this bifurcation process seems to have occurred is aviation. In the public sphere, the most advanced aircraft might well be the F-22 fighter jet, or perhaps the F-35. However, if insider testimony is credited, these aircraft seem almost primitive in comparison with flying machines developed in secret.

Perhaps the most compelling statements in this regard come from Ben Rich, former Director of Lockheed-Martin’s Advanced Development Projects, or “Skunk Works,” a Lockheed division notable for its super high-tech, top secret projects, among them the U2 spy plane and the SR-71 Blackbird.

As Joseph P. Farrell’s reports in his book Saucers, Swastikas, and Psyops, Rich made a number of peculiar and provocative comments at the end of his career, and following his retirement on December 31, 1990 (prior to his death five years later), comments strongly hinting at “the development of … an off-the-books physics and technology….”

For example, on September 7, 1988, in a presentation to the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics in Atlanta, Georgia, Rich lamented that he was prohibited from discussing Skunkwork’s current projects, but he did say that they “call for technologies once only dreamed of by science fiction writers.”

In ensuing years, Rich elaborated slightly. For instance, while speaking to the UCLA School of Engineering Alumni Association in 1993, Rich said that “an error in the equations” had been discovered and corrected, making it possible “to travel to the stars.”

He added, however, that “these technologies are so locked up in black programs, that it would take an act of God to ever get them out to benefit humanity.”

Ben Rich - Who saw it it...lived it all.
Ben Rich – Who saw it it…lived it all.

Farrell goes on to relay a statement from an unnamed Lockheed retired engineer who was quoted in a magazine article in 1988 as saying that “we have things flying in the Nevada desert that would make George Lucas drool.”

In the same article an Air Force officer involved in the development of the SR-71 said “[w]e are testing vehicles that defy description.

To compare them conceptually to the SR-71 would be like comparing Leonardo da Vinci’s parachute design to the space shuttle.” And a retired Colonel chimed in: “We have things that are so far beyond the comprehension of the average aviation authority as to be really alien to our way of thinking.”

Consider then for a moment the possibility that within the classified world, in 1993, a technology, to quote Ben Rich, “to take ET back home” had already been developed.The implications are enormous, not to mention rather frightening. One wonders where the technology must be in 2014, more than twenty years later.

And if the aforementioned statements are true, and this seems plausible (why would these individuals lie, or even exaggerate, especially to Engineering Associations and Aeronautics institutes), what might this imply about the current state of the art in domains other than aviation, such as neuroscience, which has itself been the subject of intense “weaponization” efforts.

Indeed, what does such a vast discrepancy between what people believe and what is actually true suggest about the nature of our perceived reality in general?



  1. There is so much in the slinging of ideas and ‘stirring the soup’ with scientific developments. It is a good subject to discuss. . It engenders fear and confusion and a lot of thinking. But, for those who have chosen to train and use the mind it is a simple thing.

    I’ve found There are two classic ways to discover truth 1) intellectually via the analyzer is one approach, and 2) spiritually via your ‘knowingness’.

    Thinking: That is the first lie. Being is a much more powerful place. When one reads articles of this type it helps to have an understanding of scientific studies and the manipulation of false data that can occur. The level of propaganda that is involved. It also helps to understand, how desperate the opposition is to get you to believe their ‘truth’.(propaganda).

    Your truth starts with believing in oneself. It is what meditation can be used for: clearing the mind and entering ones awareness. From a sense of self, comes ones power or as Tyron pointed out one’s ability to detect ‘truth’.

    If one approaches these things from this center it is pretty easy to determine what floats or not. You just know. (The key to explaining my views on this might require a two part explanation). It is very possible to know another’s thoughts, read their past and their future, telepath with thoughts, and do all manner of psychic abilities with practice and training. Many can do this. I believe all people can learn to do this. It is natural to us.

    • 2) Passion to learn is a strong motivator . It comes from being in contact with what in science might be called ‘the field’ (however it is much more alive involved than that). Reductionistic science really has limited answers. Learning awareness for the spirit is simple. Too simple for most. Learning to protect oneself is also a pretty simple process as one grows in skills. The crucial point is to be aware there are those psychotic spirits so fractured they will do anything to control others paths and energy. They have been stuck running that game over and over for thousands of years. Your growth of your awareness is what protects and moves you past that. Technology is just a ‘tool’. Sometimes a very enticing tool, but it pales compared to the imagination of the human spirit.

      All they say about frequency is true. But you are Sons and Daughters of God( of which one you can chose) and the little international folks are no match if you awaken. Your power is unlimited, but you have to awaken to your gifts. People have been in a slumber on the planet, hypnotized by spirits that have hidden your truth . . . but you can wake up .

    • franktalk, Thank you for your innate wisdom! People truly need inspiration during these chaotic, troubled times. Bless you for sharing…

  2. I want to make my former critique more specific, because this topic of mind control is too important for all of us and it’s too simple to fall just into another trap as: “There so many ways to control your mind now, you just can’t even imagine”.

    Everyone has states this, has to proove it, otherwise it’s just scare mongering and that’s bad for the mind.

    These techniques go back in history to the assasins, the chuch and especially their super intelligent jesuits, they trained it in the middle ages. Then came Mengele and his cohorts. He never did it for scientific purposes, he did it simply because he was part of a greater community of “mad men”. And you could and can find them in all elitists circles, they dream of total control, also via methods of high technology mind control. Barry Trower, whom I admire for his courageness to speek out and PROOVE what he says, gives us enough thoughts to think about.

    But watch his films, read his papers, he never will simply speek of “control” here. The large PR industries always boast about their successes. This is – to a large degree – simplky a big lie and it”s provable and they know it. People are totally sick of their methods and stupidity.

    Let’s better talk about real useful efforts in exploring our brain and try to focus on human science not mad dogs or frankensteins who simply pose to do scientific work. They “want” to control, so they boast they “can” control minds.

  3. I would rather be concentrated on the much more effective ways to permanently muggle peoples minds by permanent psychological warefare, the many techniques to dumb them down in early ages, to systematically lie to them on really any major subject – may it be religious, scientific or social/political.

    My personal hierarchy of effective mind control techniques goes like this:

    1. religions and magical world views (FEAR OF DEATH is the center);
    2. bringing up affections/dependencies of any kind (not only drugs but also making people dependent
    on others thought – group thinking);
    3. Making people only looking at the outside and wanting something to have and at the same time let
    them forget everything inside. This leads to an empty culture of more, more, more… and the totally
    mindlessness and emptyness makes them feel unhappy at the same time. Now, you can “work”
    with them, “buy” them solutions in papers, with drugs, by doctors…
    4. A totally controlled and homogenously lying media complex, which prohibits them to think for
    themselves. After some times they even don’t trust their own eyes (see chemtrials).

  4. As with so many other articles and papers, the author leaves the reader with a somewhat disturbed mind. What I do not question at all is the totally disturbed mindset of most of those frankensteins, which pose as scientists or engineers and work on hidden projects in hidden places for hidden men and hidden agendas, what a wonderful world of “Edward Teller” types they are.

    After all, the ability to disturb minds by electromagnetic waves has in no way anything to do with controlling the mind, this is pure bullshit. Too many people believe that pure force (directly or through some techniques) can control a person. As the body has the ability to heal itself, all outside manipulations of the mind – including the long known and really disturbing techniques to split up a personality – all tend to be time limited, so they have to repeat it over and over.

    The fundamental premisse in all of this is a very limited perception of nature itself, and it seems to be rampant in so many laboratories and minds of really disturbed scientists. Every time science tries to reduce complex things to a simple model they got it wrong and all this is simply another example.

    • Having worked for a lifetime in assisting people to heal their personal woundedness, I so agree re the ability to heal oneself from the INSIDE. Personal sovereignty is a choice as is the desire to heal oneself. With all of the much needed revelations exposing the “dark side” in VT as well as other alternative media, it’s very important that no one despair. There are solutions as well as support for overcoming the heaviness of these exposes. A great challenge today is being informed while keeping one’s internal balance & fortitude. Is it possible for VT to have contributors who focus on solutions in this regard?

    • The greatest resistance to the cabal, TPB, dark side, etc. is a strong mind/body/spirit. Seeing fear for what it is, a method of control, is the beginning of awakening. WE THE PEOPLE have much more going for us when we let go of the blinders & consciously retrieve our personal sovereignty. this may include letting go of our own distortions, projections, ignorance, etc. then we are unstoppable in what we can achieve!

    • Thanks Steve, for your reply.

      What I tried to say is not, that such methods are capable of disturbing peoples minds, but that they are not able to control peoples mind. We have to be very careful in the definition and the use of words here.

      Scientists are very good in boasting up their alleged findings, mostly to get more money. This problem does not arise in those hidden projects, they have lots of money from also hidden channels, but mostly all of them claim to be god – and that’s their greatest fault and it will be in the future.

      For instance, Edward Teller, never in his life was able to do any constructive work. All he did was to play god and invent one muerous weapon after the other. He was not a scientist in the real sense of the word, he was more of a mad man. The former chief of the american phychoterapist society was simply a criminal who was never charged for his horrific crimes and mind and body tortures, he ordered as integral part of those mind control “experiments”.

      Their ongoing scientific fault and their ongoing criminal aims makes them worthless for the real part of mankind as well as for the real scientist community (parallels to the intelligence community are done here on purpose).

  5. They must use this in a different way because if they were to hear about a terror plot they would be happy because it saved them the money for a false flag 🙂

  6. Sounds great but I haven’t seen one brain injured vet benefit from any of this so called great stuff. When you see dozens of severly brain injured young men and they spend their lives with no improvement then I guess all this great stuff is being used for other purposes.
    I know for sure that waves can be transmitted as when the Russians affected workers in a US embassy. Many are familiar with Tesla, with Harrp, and yet nothing has come out for the severly impaired.

    It is not just the traumatically injured vets – look at all the stroke victims.

  7. M.k. Ultra….catcher in the rye….Montauk project? I don’t know….Dreamland……Mindwar…psychological warfare…..temple of set…..Michael Aquino…..magnetic fields……particle accelerators…..cover stories…..tv. productions presented as reality

    • Stewart Swerdlow, a former “victim” of the Montauk Project, after going through his own healing journey, now teaches workshops re Self-Empowerment & clearing one’s “mind control” as well as strengthening oneself through meditation, deep intuition & the language of hyperspace.

  8. As for LED Street Lighting I always wondered how our poor cities can afford changing the old light bulb street lightning to LEDs lights now, when every nation is in a financial crisis.

    They can be really expensive. For example, 3 years ago, a tail light for a VW Golf cost 350 Euro.

  9. And the “lost” technology Dr. Farrell writes about in his books, and especially his book “Grid of the Gods”, is NOT LOST but exists in Washington D.C. Washington D.C. is NOT a Capital! Washington D.C. is a technology; the geometric template for the synthesis of mind with matter! Carl Jung meets Wolfgang Pauli, The Wizard of Oz/ Psychology meets Alice and Wonderland/physics. Three dimensional thought expressed on a two dimensional plane [ geometry of Washington D.C.].

  10. I have been warning my friends for years now that their stupid ass smartphones can be turned into a psychotronic weapon. My antiquated flip phone is most of the time, without battery in the house. As for the Internet of things, not in my house. The wireless router gets disconnected everyday, I shut if off and yank it out of the socket. The microwave too. Cable box I don’t have. And if I have to disconnect every appliance in the house, no problem.
