The mind-altering mechanism is based on a
subliminal carrier technology: the Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (SSSS),
sometimes called "S-quad" or "Squad".
It was developed by Dr Oliver Lowery of
Norcross, Georgia, and is described in
US Patent #5,159,703, "Silent Subliminal
Presentation System", dated October 27, 1992.
The abstract for the patent reads:
"A silent communications system in which
non-aural carriers, in the very low or very high audio-frequency range
or in the adjacent ultrasonic frequency spectrum are amplitude- or
frequency-modulated with the desired intelligence and propagated
acoustically or vibrationally, for inducement into the brain, typically
through the use of loudspeakers, earphones, or piezoelectric
The modulated carriers may be transmitted
directly in real time or may be conveniently recorded and stored on
mechanical, magnetic, or optical media for delayed or repeated
transmission to the listener."
According to literature by Silent Sounds, Inc.,
it is now possible, using supercomputers, to analyze human emotional EEG
patterns and replicate them, then store these "emotion signature clusters"
on another computer and, at will, "silently induce and change the
emotional state in a human being".
Silent Sounds, Inc. states that it is interested only in positive
emotions, but the military is not so limited. That this is a US Department
of Defense project is obvious.
Edward Tilton, President of Silent Sounds, Inc., says this
about S-quad in a letter dated December 13, 1996:
"All schematics, however, have been
classified by the US Government and we are not allowed to reveal the
exact details... ... we make tapes and CDs for the German Government,
even the former Soviet Union countries! All with the permission of the
US State Department, of course... The system was used throughout
Operation Desert Storm (Iraq) quite successfully."
The graphic illustration, "Induced Alpha to
Theta Biofeedback Cluster Movement", which accompanies the literature, is
labeled "#AB 116-394-95 UNCLASSIFIED" and is an output from,
"the world's most versatile and most
sensitive electroencephalograph (EEG) machine".
It has a gain capability of 200,000, as compared
to other EEG machines in use which have gain capability of approximately
50,000. It is software-driven by the "fastest of computers" using a noise-nulling
technology similar to that used by nuclear submarines for detecting small
objects underwater at extreme range.
The purpose of all this high technology is to plot and display a moving
cluster of periodic brainwave signals. The illustration shows an EEG display
from a single individual, taken of left and right hemispheres
Ile readout from the two sides of the
brain appear to be quite different, but in fact are the same (discounting
normal left-right brain variations).
CLONING THE EMOTIONS
By using these computer-enhanced EEGs,
scientists can identify and isolate the brain's low-amplitude "emotion
signature clusters", synthesize them and store them on another computer.
In other words, by studying the subtle
characteristic brainwave patterns that occur when a subject experiences a
particular emotion, scientists have been able to identify the concomitant
brainwave pattern and can now duplicate it.
"These clusters are then placed on the
Silent Sound[TM] carrier frequencies and will silently
trigger the occurrence of the same basic emotion in another human
SYSTEM DELIVERY AND
There is a lot more involved here than a simple
subliminal sound system. There are numerous patented technologies which can
be piggybacked individually or collectively onto a carrier frequency to
elicit all kinds of effects.
There appear to be two methods of delivery with the system.
One is direct microwave induction
into the brain of the subject, limited to short-range operations.
The other, as described above, utilizes
ordinary radio and television carrier frequencies.
Far from necessarily being used as a weapon
against a person, the system does have limitless positive applications.
However, the fact that the sounds are subliminal makes them virtually
undetectable and possibly dangerous to the general public.
In more conventional use, the Silent Sounds Subliminal System (SSSS)
might utilize voice commands, e.g., as an adjunct to security systems.
Beneath the musical broadcast that you hear in stores and shopping malls may
be a hidden message which exhorts against shoplifting. And while voice
commands alone are powerful, when the subliminal presentation system carries
cloned emotional signatures, the result is overwhelming.
Free-market uses for this technology are the common self-help tapes;
positive affirmation, relaxation and meditation tapes; as well as methods to
increase learning capabilities.
In a medical context, these systems can be used to great advantage to treat
psychiatric and psychosomatic problems. As a system for remediating the
profoundly deaf, it is unequalled.
(Promises, promises. This is the most common
positive use touted for this technology over the past 30 years. But the deaf
are still deaf, and the military now has a weapon to use on unsuspecting
people with perfectly normal hearing.)
In fact, the US Government has denied or refused to comment on mind-altering
weapons for years.
Only last year, US News & World Report
ran an article titled "Wonder
Weapons" basically a review of the new so-called 'non-lethal' or
'less-than -lethal' weapons.' Not one word about S-quad, although the
technology had been used six years earlier!
Excerpts from the article read:
"Says Charles Bernard, a former Navy
'I have yet to see one of these ray-gun
things that actually works; and DARPA (Defense Advanced
Research Projects Agency) has come to us every few years to see
if there are ways to incapacitate the central nervous system
remotely,' Dr F. Terry Hambrecht, head of the Neural
Prostheses Program at NIH, told US News, 'but nothing has ever come
of if,' he said. 'That is too science-fiction and far-fetched."'
It may sound "science fiction and far-fetched"
but it is not. However, that is just what the powers-that-be want you to
believe, so as to leave them alone in their relentless pursuit of...what?
The idea behind non-lethal weapons is to incapacitate the enemy without
actually killing them, or, in the case of riot control or hostage
situations, to disable the participants without permanent injury, preferably
without their knowing it. The electromagnetic mind-altering technologies
would all fall into this class of weapons, but since they are all officially
non-existent, who is to decide when and where they will be used?
And why should selected companies in the entertainment industry
reportedly be allowed access to this technology when the very fact of
its existence is denied to the general public?
As recently as last month [February], this stonewall approach of total
denial or silence on the subject still held fast, even toward committees of
the US Congress!
The Joint Economics Committee, chaired by
Jim Saxton (R-NJ), convened on February 25, 1998 for the "Hearing on
Radio Frequency Weapons and Proliferation: Potential Impact on the Economy".
Invited testimony included statements by several
authorities from the military:
Dr Alan Kehs, of the US Army
Laboratories, discussed the overall RF threat.
Mr James O'Bryon, Deputy Director of
Operational Testing and Director of live fire testing for the Office
of Secretary of Defense at the Pentagon, discussed the role of Live
Fire Testing and how it plays a role in testing military equipment
with RF weapons.
Mr David Schriner, Principal Engineer of
Directed Energy Studies with Electronic Warfare Associates and
recently retired as an engineer with a naval weapons testing
facility, talked about the difficulty in building an RF weapon and
about the terrorist threat.
Dr Ira Merritt, Chief of Concepts
Identification and Applications Analysis Division, Advanced
Technology Directorate, Missile Defense and Space Technology Center,
Huntsville, Alabama, discussed the proliferation of RF weapons
primarily from the former Soviet Union.
Although these statements gave information of
technical interest, they are perhaps more important for the information they
did not give: information on the existence of radiofrequency weapons that
directly affect the human brain and nervous system.
This technology did not spring up overnight. It has a long history of
development and denials of development-by the US Government and probably
half of the other governments of the world as well.
We know that the former Soviet Union was actively engaged in this type of
research. In a previous article we reported that during the 1970s the Soviet
KGB developed a Psychotronic Influence System (PIS) that was
used to turn soldiers into programmable 'human weapons'. The system employed
a combination of high-frequency radio-waves and hypnosis. The PIS project
was begun in response to a similar training scheme launched in the US by
President Carter, according to Yuri Malin, former security
adviser to USSR President Gorbachev.

POWER OF THE
Jan Wiesemann has written an apt description of the situation which
now exists in the United States, about the 'forces that be' and how the
situation came about:
"During the Cold War the United States not
only engaged in a relatively open nuclear arms race with the Soviet
Union, but also engaged in a secret race developing unconventional
weapons. As the intelligence agencies (which prior to the Second World
War had merely played a supporting role within the government) continued
to increase their power, so did the funds spent on developing techniques
designed to outsmart each other.
"And as the US intelligence community began to grow, a secret culture
sprang about which enabled the intelligence players to implement the
various developed techniques to cleverly circumvent the democratic
processes and institutions...
"Like many other democracies, the US Government is made up of two basic
parts the elected constituency, i.e., the various governors, judges,
congressmen and the President; and the unelected bureaucracies, as
represented by the numerous federal agencies.
"In a well-balanced and correctly functioning democracy, the elected
part of the government is in charge of its unelected bureaucratic part,
giving the people a real voice in the agenda set by their government.
"While a significant part of the US Government no doubt follows this
democratic principle, a considerable portion of the US Government
operates in complete secrecy and follows its own unaccountable agenda
which, unacknowledged, very often is quite different from the public
Jan goes on to quote one of the United States'
most popular war heroes: Dwight D. Eisenhower, who served as
Supreme Commander of Allied Forces during World War II and was later
elected 34th President of the United States.
farewell address to the nation in 1961, President
"...we have been compelled to create a
permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. Added to this, three
and a half million men and women are directly engaged in the defense
establishment. We annually spend on military security more than the net
income of all United States corporations.
"This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms
industry is new in the American experience. The total
influence-economic, political, even spiritual-is felt in every city,
every state house, every office of the federal government. We recognize
the imperative need for this development. Yet we must not fail to
comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources and livelihood
are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.
"In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of
unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military
-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced
power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this
combination endanger our liberties or our democratic processes."
OVER NEW WEAPONS
United Nations was established in 1945 with the aim of "saving
succeeding generations from the scourge of war".
In 1975 the General Assembly considered a draft
first proposed by the Soviet Union: "Prohibition of the Development and
Manufacture of New Types of Weapons of Mass Destruction and New Systems of

stalled. They gave a long, convoluted reason, but the result was the same.
In an article entitled "Non-Lethal Weapons May Violate Treaties",
the author notes that the Certain Conventional Weapons Convention
covers many of the non-conventional weapons,
"those that utilize infrasound or
electromagnetic energy (including lasers, microwave or radiofrequency
radiation, or visible light pulsed at brainwave frequency) for their
Harlan Girard, Managing Director of the
International Committee Against Offensive Microwave Weapons, told me
he believes the strategy behind the government's recent push for
less-than-lethal weapons is a subterfuge. The ones that are now getting all
the publicity are put up for scrutiny to get the public's approval. The
electromagnetic mind-altering technologies are not mentioned, but would be
brought in later under the umbrella of less-than- lethal weapons.
These weapons were recently transferred from the Department of Defense over
to the Department of Justice. Why? Because there are several international
treaties that specifically limit or exclude weapons of this nature from
being used in international warfare.
In other words, weapons that are barred from use against our country's worst
enemies (notwithstanding the fact that the US did use this weapon against
Iraqi troops!) can now be used against our own citizens by the
local police departments against such groups as peaceful protestors of US
TOWARDS GLOBAL MIND
The secrecy involved in the development of the electromagnetic mind-altering
technology reflects the tremendous power that is inherent in it. To put it
bluntly, whoever controls this technology can control the minds of men-all
There is evidence that the US Government has plans to extend the range of
this technology to envelop all peoples, all countries. This can be
accomplished, is being accomplished, by utilizing the nearly completed
project [15,16] for overseas areas and
the GWEN network now in place in the US.
The US Government denies all this.
Dr Michael Persinger is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience
at Laurentian University, Ontario, Canada.
You have met him before in the pages of
Resonance where we reported on his findings that strong electromagnetic
fields can affect a person's brain.
"Temporal lobe stimulation," he said, "can
evoke the feeling of a presence, disorientation, and perceptual
irregularities. It can activate images stored in the subject's memory,
including nightmares and monsters that are normally suppressed."
Dr Persinger wrote an article a few years ago,
titled "On the Possibility of Directly Accessing Every Human Brain by
Electromagnetic Induction of Fundamental Algorithms".
The abstract reads:
"Contemporary neuroscience suggests the
existence of fundamental algorithms by which all sensory transduction is
translated into an intrinsic, brain-specific code. Direct stimulation of
these codes within the human temporal or limbic cortices by applied
electromagnetic patterns may require energy levels which are within the
range of both geomagnetic activity and contemporary communication
A process which is coupled to the narrow
band of brain temperature could allow all normal human brains to be.
affected by a subharmonic whose frequency range at about 10 Hz would
only vary by 0. 1 Hz."
He concludes the article with this:
"Within the last two decades a potential has
emerged which was improbable, but which is now marginally feasible. This
potential is the technical capability to influence directly the major
portion of the approximately six billion brains of the human species,
without mediation through classical sensory modalities, by generating
neural information within a physical medium within which all members of
the species are immersed.
"The historical emergence of such possibilities, which have ranged from
gunpowder to atomic fission, have resulted in major changes in the
social evolution that occurred inordinately quickly after the
implementation. Reduction of the risk of the inappropriate application
of these technologies requires the continued and open discussion of
their realistic feasibility and implications within the scientific and
It doesn't get any plainer than that.
And we do not have open discussion because the
US Government has totally denied the existence of this technology.
