Hello, New Normal. Hello, Behavioral Modification
The antidote to this is spiritual strength.
Remember the old “crazy conspiracy theory” about using electromagnetic fields for behavioral modification? In truth, it’s never been much of a theory as the military in the Soviet Union and in the U.S. have been playing with both electromagnetic fields and behavioral modification for decades—while social engineering has been a longstanding hobby of the Rockefellers and similar rich eugenicists—but now, due to a total collapse of collective cognitive coherence and an intentional dilution of courtesy and social standards, overt and covert behavioral modification is “in” and “good for us.”
(Also remember how I said that political correctness and medical coercion were two sides of the same approach? Well, keep reading.)
My own journey toward thinking about electromagnetic fields started accidentally. As I was learning about audio engineering some years ago, I got very curious about the physical impact of audio on the body. I felt certain things, I had peasant theories—but I really didn’t know anything, and I craved to understand. So I bought a book by called “Body Electric” by Robert O. Becker. It ended up being a relatively technical book, first published in 1985, by an old school American orthopedic surgeon who, due to his interest in bone healing, was researching electromagnetic fields and their impact on biological life. Half of the book was about cutting salamanders. None the less, I super nerded out on it since it was very interesting.
For example, I learned that the best way to get an electromagnetic signal into the body was by pulsating it, as opposed to a continuous stream, which confirmed some of my observations about audio. I also learned that in his own career, he had encountered both the military people desiring to use his research for their usual purpose of “mind control”—and the annoying sales people dying to create lucrative “cure all” products based on his research—before he was even done with testing or willing to talk to them. I also learned that, according to Becker, interfering with electromagnetic fields without care was an exceptionally unintelligent idea because it messed with the finest cellular machinery.
Our bodies are mostly water. A lot of communication on the micro level happens via electromagnetic signals. Our life and health depend on the integrity of that communication. Over millions of years of our existence, we have evolved in a particular way, and our bodies work the best when there is no artificial electromagnetic invasion imposed on our bodies. The invasion distracts our cells from their normal, healthy, happy operation. It confuses them. Our cells have a hard time doing their job well when foreign electromagnetic fields “yell” at them all the time. And yes, our bodies are extremely adaptable and resilient. And yes, we can sustain a lot and heal. But at some point, the entire thing just breaks, and it’s not good because this is how people get all sorts of unnecessary and avoidable maladies.
Anyway, his work got me interested in the topic, and since then my eyes have been open to the subject of electromagnetic fields and their use by various entities.
(Before I go into the really creepy and recent stuff, here is a link to many studies on the impact of “ordinary” electromagnetic interference on human health (see also this). And yes, it’s been known for years, and of course the “telecommunications industry” has been working hard to keep that information extremely unfashionable and crazy-sounding. The industry behavior has been very much along the lines of what happened with Teflon, tobacco, asbestos, sugar vs. fat. etc.)
Anyway, fast-forward to today, and we are in a peculiar environment. You know how over the past few years, and especially in the past year and four months, it became acceptable and even a sign of goodness to scream at people and demand changes in their thoughts and behavior (to the tune of whoever pays for the sophisticated marketing), with the moral fervor of a religious cult? It all started with plain political correctness, then went on to medial opinions and choices—and if we don’t push back, it will likely get more sinister, impacting every aspect of our lives—from health to money to dietary choices (meat eater = climate denier = worse than a grandma killer?) to associations to opinions—all managed through a digital ID with interactive capabilities. (The proverbial “heath passport” is a just a foot in the door and really has nothing to do with the miraculous fact that in 2020, for the first time in history, all governments in the world decided to deeply care about the health of their citizens.)
So now, we are in a situation where on the one hand, there is a push for the collective acceptance of the idea that micromanaging and commandeering western citizens’ behavior and what used to be their sovereign personal choices, for “public good,” is normal and desirable—and on the other hand, the technologies that can be used for granular and massive social engineering—several decades in the works—are seemingly mature and ready to be officially rolled out on a grand scale. Well, and three, our rulers have lost all shame, with our blessings. (An important thing to note here is that living in a “nudging panopticon” mode is not going to be very pleasant. It’s not going to be just something happening on the background, not interfering with our actual lives. It’s going to be extremely invasive… just wait for climate lockdowns, endless boosters, forced dietary restrictions, and so on.)
We have been not so gently ushered to a place where the “Old Normal” standards of human interaction are out of the window, where families are split over arguments about masks and vaccines and race and gender, where our expectations for privacy or personal choices—and, eventually, possibly, property rights, if Klaus gets his way—are below the sea level, and where any “public good” narrative du jour is considered an increasingly good reason to squash our basic human rights. In other words, it’s all the things that the conspiracy theorists have been warning about for a while—but now that our bodies and brains have adjusted somewhat, it feels more tolerable—for the moment, until they squeeze us more.
So. What about electromagnetic fields and behavioral modification?
First, a philosophical statement. I think it would be fair to say that, based on the history of human corruption, if there is a technology that can be used to influence citizen behavior for the benefit of corporate or state powers, it will likely be at the very least attempted—and that is regardless of the potential of any technology to save poor orphans or nobly treat rare diseases. It’s just that corruption tends to take over no matter what.
What’s the antidote to the upcoming (or ongoing) attempt at covert behavioral modification? I think the antidote is the same as it’s always been. It’s spiritual strength, the desire to understand the truth and do what’s right. It’s good relationships. It’s courage and love. Evil maniacs might be yelling propaganda or beaming electromagnetic frequencies at our brains, and it may be unpleasant—but we are here on this planet for a reason, and we have what it takes to walk our paths straight up. We cannot be defeated if we don’t agree to it. We have love. I am convinced of that. Love melts their stupid electromagnetic beams.
And now, without further ado, please check out some of the completely official and non-conspiratorial articles and studies on using electromagnetic fields—usually, I kid you not, in combination with some kind of nanoparticles and genetically modified organisms—to control animal and human behavior. For every article listed below, please click on the image to go to the source and dig as deep as you want.
[To get an idea about the context in which this kind of research exists, please take a look at my earlier article about CreepTech. It has hours or video about the most disgusting and cynical applications of advanced technologies.]
“The results provide evidence that relatively abstract personal and social attitudes are susceptible to targeted neuromodulation, opening the way for researchers to not only describe the biological mechanisms undergirding high-level attitudes and beliefs, but also to establish causality via experimental intervention.”
“When heated, these nanoparticles made by Gang Bao’s lab at Rice can activate select genetically modified insect brain cells. Using different amplitude and field strength of magnetic fields we’ve shown that we can quickly turn on and off specific behaviors in fruit flies using a remotely applied magnetic field. In the future, and in conjunction with the US FDA, we hope to use similar technologies to remotely activate specific neurons in the visual cortex of humans to help restore sight to people that suffer from blindness.”
“Using an electromagnetic field, and targeting the ventromedial hypothalamus, researchers were able to remotely turn feeding behavior on and off in mice.”
I recommend poking around that one. That entire section of their website has seemingly been deleted (I am linking to an archived version). There are many interesting resources on animal and human behavioral modification.
“This tool is best suited for observational research where subjects can be observed without their awareness, which adds to the authenticity of findings. It is easy to use and gives data that can well be statistically analyzed.”
“In one final experiment, the researchers injected Magneto into the striatum of freely behaving mice, a deep brain structure containing dopamine-producing neurons that are involved in reward and motivation, and then placed the animals into an apparatus split into magnetised a non-magnetised sections. Mice expressing Magneto spent far more time in the magnetised areas than mice that did not, because activation of the protein caused the striatal neurons expressing it to release dopamine, so that the mice found being in those areas rewarding. This shows that Magneto can remotely control the firing of neurons deep within the brain, and also control complex behaviours.
“Steve Ramirez, a 24-year-old doctoral student at the time, placed the mouse in a small metal box with a black plastic floor. Instead of curiously sniffing around, though, the animal instantly froze in terror, recalling the experience of receiving a foot shock in that same box. It was a textbook fear response, and if anything, the mouse’s posture was more rigid than Ramirez had expected. Its memory of the trauma must have been quite vivid. Which was amazing, because the memory was bogus: The mouse had never received an electric shock in that box. Rather, it was reacting to a false memory that Ramirez and his MIT colleague Xu Liu had planted in its brain.”
Oh and this. The notorious and crazy proposition to introduce morality pills, or, better yet, covertly add moralizing substances to the water supply.
The list of goes on, and on, and on. We are in a very strange place right now, and it is extremely important to remember love.
