PSYCHOCIVILIZED SOCIETY AND THE C.I.A.
This chapter explores a complex subject - the use of electromagnetic
waves for mind manipulation. The material is translated into simpler
concepts and can be understood without a great deal of technical
background. One of the main goals of the authors has been to make
these concepts understandable to the layperson.
The idea of HAARP as a system for mind manipulation, some will say,
is a big leap from the ionosphere. For low level military planners,
it may well be. However, after a careful review of the possibilities
described in the HAARP contract documents and planning records,
coupled with the array of Air Force materials gathered by the
authors, the possibilities are evident. The HAARP transmitting
system could be used inadvertently or intentionally to alter mental
These next chapters will inform the reader and raise
serious questions regarding what might be hidden behind the HAARP
"I foresee the time when we shall have the means and therefore,
inevitably, the temptation to manipulate the behavior and
intellectual functioning of all people through environmental and
biochemical manipulation of the brain."235
The 1968 New York Times
article quoted Dr. David Krech of UC Berkeley, who predicted a new
technology which in the intervening years has become a reality. The
work in this area has moved far beyond what anyone would think was
possible a few years ago. These developments raise profound
questions which should be dealt with squarely and openly,
considering their far-reaching implications. Moreover, the use of
the ionosphere as an antenna by the United States or any other
country to manipulate in a military self-serving manner, is probably
in violation of international treaties and should be forbidden by
Dr. Jose M. R. Delgado, M.D., has researched the human brain and
published his results in professional papers since 1952. He was
educated in Spain and came to the United States to work at Yale
University in 1950. He became a Professor of Physiology at Yale,
where he continued his research work focusing on the control of the
mind. His early work pioneered our understanding of the human brain
and was summarized through 1969 in a book he wrote, called
Control of the Mind - Toward a Psychocivilized Society.236
This early work was mainly animal
research, and included insertion of electrodes into the brains of
animals. He found that by inducing an electrical current in the
brain of his subject, he could manipulate behavior. Delgado
discovered that he could create a number of effects from sleep to
highly agitated states of consciousness.
His later work was done wirelessly, with
his most advanced efforts developed without electrode implants used
at all. Stated differently, he achieved the brain manipulating
effects at a distance, without any physical contact or devices
attached to the living creature being manipulated.

Jr., Wednesday, April 3,1968, quoting Dr. David Krech, UC Berkeley.

Delgado found that by changing the frequency and waveform on an
experimental subject, he could completely change their thinking and
Dr. Delgado's work set the foundation for many other researchers,
while at the same time opening the possibilities of misuse by the
government. On page 229 of Dr. Delgado's book, he uses a quote from
the UNESCO's Constitution which, in the context of his work and this
book, is foreboding:
"Since war begins in the mind of men, it is in
the minds of men that the defenses of peace must be constructed."237
It is a thought, in the context of Delgado's work, which smacks of
the Orwellian story,
In a book about the Central Intelligence Agency's (CIA) pursuit of
mind control technology, Dr. Delgado's work is also diseussed.238
Dr. Delgado's research was reviewed in 1969 by Dr. Gottlieb, who
worked for the CIA's Office of Research and Development (OR) while
looking for the possible uses of this technology. At that time, the
work was still crude, although the CIA shared Dr. Delgado's vision
for techniques which would allow for a "psychocivilized society".
During this period, a neurosurgeon at Tulane University, Dr. Robert
G. Heath, brought this prospect closer to reality with his work in
electrical stimulation of the brain.
As one author recently put it,
"Like Dr. Delgado, the neurosurgeon concluded that

and pleasure. It could literally manipulate the human will at
The CIA's interest in mind control began with the Korean War, during
which the North Koreans demonstrated skills in the area of mind
control not previously seen in the West. The CIA undertook a
significant research effort into this area which extended to
numerous related fiascos. Some of these were uncovered in subsequent
scandalous revelations which included Canadian citizens being
mentally manipulated without consent, treatment of thousands of
university students and military personnel with LSD, etc.240
To the CIA, Dr. Delgado's "wireless" effects were thought-provoking.
He discovered that animals could be placed within an electromagnetic
field (EMF) and be manipulated without any physical contact.

strength of the Earth's own magnetic fields... yet when the signal is
tuned to precise frequencies, Delgado can do much more than make a
These technologies are increasingly being
recognized by other researchers, and the data base has reached a
level of certainty not understood as little as ten years ago.

Today, a number of tools
for brain entrainment are even being marketed. Very sophisticated
brain biofeedback devices have also been developed which are being
used to teach individuals to alter their own brain activity to more
desirable states. These devices are being used to help people with
various mental dysfunctions, and others reach higher peak
performance mental states. These devices can be likened to mental
gym equipment designed to create individually controlled exercise
programs for the brain, with the outcome being increased mental
It should be kept in mind that John Heckscher, HAARP program
manager, made clear in an interview that the frequencies and
energies used in HAARP were controllable and in some applications
would be pulsed in the 1-20 Hertz range. The ranges of frequency and
energy levels, he also stated, were small, but distinguishable from
the Earth's own pulsations.242
This point was further amplified by Heckscher when he said,
"The ELF/ULF waves to be generated by HAARP
through interaction with the polar electrojet will have power levels
so small compared with me existing background that special
integrating receivers wilt have to be used to detect them."243
The issue is one of controlled coherent signals, which as we stated
above can be one fiftieth the energy level of the Earth's natural
fields and still have profound effects on brain activity. The HAARP
system creates a huge coherent controllable electromagnetic field
which could be compared to a Delgado EMF, except HAARP's doesn't
fill a room, it potentially fills a region the size of a large
western state and, possibly, a hemisphere.
Basically, the HAARP
transmitter in this application will emit energy of the same level
as the Earth's which is 50 times more than was needed in the
wireless experiments of Dr. Delgado. What this means is that if
HAARP is tuned to the right frequency, using just the right wave
forms, mental disruption throughout a region could occur
intentionally or as a side effect of the radio frequency
Another important factor not thoroughly reviewed in the HAARP
documents is cyclotron resonance. The HAARP signal uses this concept
in its radiated energy. The effect of cyclotron resonance is a large
increase in reactions in the ionosphere and in living organisms on
the ground, under certain conditions. Many activities in living
cells involve charged particles, and cyclotron resonance allows for
the transfer of energy to cause ions to move more rapidly.
cyclotron resonance which allows very low strength electromagnetic
fields, together with earth's magnetic field, to produce significant
biological effects. It occurs because the total effect has an impact
on very specific particles when tuned to the right frequency. When
combined with the Earth's normal magnetic fields, it is important to
note, only ELF frequencies (1-100 Hertz, pulses per second) appear
to cause these biological effects,
Cyclotron resonance can be visualized as a particle being spun like
a coiled spring and then screwed right through the cell wall into
the cell. This effect is one of the major considerations in
242 Interview of John Heckscher, HAARP Program Manager, with Jeane
243 Letter to Mr. Arther Grey, Secretary to the
United States Department of Commerce, National
Telecommunications and Information Administration, Interdepartment
Radio Advisory Committee,
Spectrum Planing Committee, Novembers, 1994.
To some degree this explains why non ionizing levels of
radiation produce the effects they do.244
In other words, cyclotron
resonance provides a condition where a significant interaction can
take place, causing chemical reactions or other physiological
responses. The manipulation of energy, when applied to living
systems, can be used for enhancing the potentials of people or for
harming them. It is here where the reactions occur leading to good,
neutral or negative health effects.
The concept of cyclotron resonance was applied to the research
carried out by the U.S. Naval Medical Research Center. They were
able to apply external fields in such a way as to affect the brain
chemistry of rats.245 The same effects can be created in humans. The
Navy research showed that they were able to affect the lithium ion,
occurring naturally in the brain, so as to create the same effect as
if they had treated the animal with a chemical introduction of
lithium (lithium is used as a strong antidepressant).246
another way, you could say that by harmonizing or resonating with
the frequency of naturally-occurring chemicals, you could amplify
their potency in the body of the animal, thereby creating the same
chemical changes as would have occurred with a massive dose of the
chemical being administered.
One military application of this knowledge would be to introduce to
adversaries on the battlefield a minute amount of a chemical
compound in their water supply, air supply or by other means and
then (after they consume the contaminants) transmit the right
frequencies toward them to activate the otherwise benign chemicals.
It would cause debilitating effects. The chemical introductions
would be below generally accepted levels for toxic effects, and yet
toxic effects would occur. This is a way a country could slide
around international agreements regarding chemical warfare. This
technique has not been lost on the military; it is clearly
understood and described in Air Force documents.247, 248
documents offer a clear example of the "electrical medicine"
predicted by Dr. Patrick Flanagan in September, 1962. Unfortunately,
the military's applications are being developed for the wrong
purposes. The research base controlled by the United States
government and others is being withheld from those engaged in human
development and healing an unfortunate situation given the current
state of the world and human health.
A better application of this technology would be to rebalance
peoples' chemistry using a combination of low levels of chemicals
with properly tuned transmitters. This technique is being applied to
healing in Europe and Asia through electro-laser acupuncture
techniques perfected by researchers in those areas. Dr. Reijo Makela
has developed a system of treatment for use in altering body energy
levels in such a way as to induce chemical changes leading to cures
of disorders heretofore considered incurable. Dr. Makela's work
involves treatment of cancer, diabetes and other debilitating
He has lectured throughout Europe and
Asia on the methods he uses and is recognized as a leader in

He has trained a number of technicians in
Europe and operates clinics in Spain and Finland. As a result of his
success with over 12,000 patients in twelve years, more than 600
former patients joined together to form a support organization for
Dr. Makela's research. The idea that a group of patients would come
together for such a purpose is unheard of in the United States.
The HAARP radiated energy pulses, and the wave forms cited in the
contract documents, are within the ranges most cited by research
scientists as those responsible for controlling and manipulating the
mind and body. This is an important factor which the military never
discloses in any of its documents associated with the HAARP project,
most particularly the Environmental Impact Statement.
The effects that Delgado's teams in Spain are studying include
behavior modifying in animals, inhibiting bacterial growth, altering
migratory movements in snails and healing bone fractures in rats.
Electromagnetic fields (EMF) have also produced some effects with
significant negative ramifications, including genetic mutations in
fruit flies and gross deformations in chick embryos.249, 250
this implies is that these low level effects alter the building
blocks of the cells, which then alter the body components; which
then alter the body. This translates into big problems for people
when applied to human physiology. Scientists have known for some
time that high levels of this type of radiation can heat up
(ionizing radiation) the body, but they have assumed that low levels
were not a problem.
However, the current research, including
military research, indicates that this is not the case.
or worse, weak electromagnetic fields are emerging as a potent
biological force - a discovery with staggering implications for
future medicine, science, industry and perhaps even the military...
There is growing concern among experts that EMFs have been - or will
be - deployed as invisible weapons to disrupt brain functioning and
The work of Delgado would not be particularly alarming if it were
"animals exposed to radiation from radio waves
show subtle changes in blood cell count, immunity, the nervous
system, and behavior, according to a 1984 EPA document."252
majority of these observed effects were from exposures which were
within the government approved safety thresholds.
Here is where the Office of Naval Research, our "good neighbors" on
the HAARP project, return to the scene. These are the same people
that insist that the HAARP project is safe and is operating within
the safety levels determined to be safe for humans by the
government. However, United States safety levels are 1000 times LESS
strict than the Soviets, which raises the question of why the United
States standards are so low and what the Soviets observed to
convince them that safety considerations required their higher

The Navy supported an international research effort to duplicate
Delgado's chick embryo experiments by initiating Project Henhouse,
which involved six laboratories. In 1988, the results were reported
in a meeting of the Bioelectromagnetics Society with five of the six

which was paid for with Naval resources showed that low levels of
radiation could cause health problems.
The Navy is aware of all of the global research going on in the area
of non-ionizing (non heat producing) radiations. The Office of Naval
Research has been collecting published scientific reports on the
biological effects of non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation, and
publishing a compiled set of abstracts, since 1974. This set of
abstracts, in digest form, has grown to the point where over a
thousand papers are listed each year.254
These scientific papers
show differing results, and can be selectively used to make any
number of points which might be positive, neutral or negative. The
point made here is that the HAARP folks reduced this huge body of
research to a couple of lines in the Environmental Impact Statement,
which is wholly inadequate, considering the power levels to be
employed with their "ionospheric heater".
The analogy can be made about the old story that a good lawyer can
argue any point from either side and win by selecting the right
citations. It is no different for the HAARP planners. They can
selectively choose the research needed to demonstrate that there are
no ill effects from their radio frequency transmitter and then,
across the country on another project, select the research they want
to show the opposite effect, in order to gain funding for a new
weapon. In the case of HAARP, there are potential negative effects
which are not being disclosed.
A neuroscientist at the Loma Linda, California, Veterans
Administration Hospital, Dr. Ross Adey, has demonstrated that the
brain waves of animals can be manipulated. He has shown that they
can be locked in phase with external pulsating waves, which thereby
affect subtle changes in behavior including enhanced learning. He
has further demonstrated, in work with Dr. Suzanne Bawin, that
fields too weak to trigger a nerve impulse can alter the way calcium
ions bind to cell surfaces, causing an array of chemical reactions
within the cell itself.255
What this means is that the kind of
chemical changes which are needed to cause alterations in thinking
or health can he started by very small amounts of controlled power,
through understood and manipulatable means. This point is extremely
important when contemplating the HAARP technologies.

Adey is also the only U.S. scientist to test a Russian machine which
generates pulsed radio frequencies. Combined with other stimuli, it
has been reported
to induce deep sleep. When interviewed, Adey acknowledged that the
device worked, but refused to comment on the United States
military's use of this technology.256
A lengthy article in the Wall Street Journal discussed the direction
of the military in the development of what they were calling, at the
time, "non-lethal" weapons. The article explored the use of anew
class of weapons which could be used to disrupt communications,
radars and other electronic equipment.
In the article, retired Lt.
General Richard Trefry, a military advisor to President Bush, said,
"They're all real." He then went on to say, "But you're bordering on
classified stuff here."258
The article described a series of new
developments leading to these technologies which did not exist ten
years before. Time schedules for the development of these
technologies had been established in 1982, with the systems expected
to be ready for use in the early to middle 1990's.259
One of the
major contributors to the "nonlethal" effort was John Alexander,
mentioned in Chapter Two, who had written an earlier article for
Military Review magazine about "the new mental battlefield". The
article described the emerging technologies for use in telepathic
weapons and systems which would interfere with the brain's
electrical functioning. This article caught the attention of the
military, who began to research this area.
John Alexander was one of the prime movers in the advanced
development of nonlethal systems, from his office at Los Alamos
National Laboratories. He pursued his interests in obscure science
and parapsychology, connecting with Janet Morris with whom he wrote
a book on mind training techniques.260 In putting the book together,
she recruited Ray Cline, a former deputy director of the CIA, who
opened doors to the White House and Pentagon according to a Wall
Street Journal article.261
The use of the technologies was
apparently known by Alexander to be problematic, because some of the
weapon systems would violate international agreements. Moreover,
individuals began to raise concerns suggesting that the use of
"nonlethals" might cause escalation, rather than control, of
The Pentagon's nonlethal study group concluded that a major effort
should be made to develop these technologies, and suggested that

Military officials objected that such a "new initiative"
announcement might have the effect of spurring other governments and
possible adversaries to develop their own new systems and that it
might cause policy makers to begin "political meddling" into this
militarily promising area. These military objections drove the
program into even more layers of secrecy, and Janet Morris and
Cline were cut out of the inner circle. The policy makers then
decreed that the nonlethal technologies would be referred to in
softer terms as "disabling systems" in the future.263
The new technology race was already on, and it appeared America's
"adversaries" may have already made significant advances in the
development of new weapon systems. The limits for microwaves were
set in the United States 1,000 times higher than the level
considered safe in the former Soviet Union. The reason that the
Soviets set their safety standard as high as they did was because
they detected biological effects at levels ignored by the
The Russians abandoned the thermal model that the U.S.
Military ascribed to when setting American standards in the 1950's
(standards were subsequently adopted by civilian regulators).
The thermal model only acknowledges heating effects as potentially
debilitating, and disregards the lower level radiations which also
have significant effects when interacting with the fields of living
things. The Soviets showed that electromagnetic fields, well within
the U.S. "safety" standards, could disrupt heart rhythms, blood
pressure and metabolism.
In addition, Soviet scientist A.S. Presman
said these fields can produce,
"visual, acoustic, and tactile
sensations in man as well as emotional states in animals, (inducing
everything) from suppressed states similar to narcosis to excited
states reaching epilepsy."266
Presman went on to discuss the
pronounced negative impact on creatures, from the embryonic stage up
to the beginning of sexual maturity.
The idea that genetic
alteration could be caused by low-level electromagnetic fields
causing deformation, death or other debilitating effects was the
problem. The lack of mainstream medical understanding, beyond that
found in leading edge research facilities, was the underlying
barrier to recognizing the risks. What all of this means is that
real damage to living things, including people, is likely being done
by use of transmitters like HAARP.
While on the other hand, if we
gained a better understanding of these non-thermal levels of energy
positive applications could be more widely used.
The Beam Team
From the 1960's through the 1970's, there were news and intelligence
reports of microwave beams being directed at the U.S. Embassy in
Moscow. There are some indications that beaming of the Embassy was
also conducted as late as 1983. This beaming has been the subject of
much speculation over the years.

The government has not released the full story, and for the most
part it remains classified.267, 268
Speculated effects of the radiation include health impairment and
mind manipulation,269 Beginning in 1965, the government tested
embassy personnel for genetic damage which may have been caused by
the microwave beaming. At the same time, they launched operation
Pandora, where monkeys were exposed to the same type of signals in
order to measure the effects
While government representatives have maintained that there were no
ill affects from the microwaves, the results of the embassy
personnel testing and Pandora remain classified.270 Even though the
impact of Russian microwave radiation is unclear, it turns out that
there may very well have been some effect. When Dr. Gottlieb, the
MKULTRA program director for the CIA, testified to the United States
Congress, he said that when President Nixon went to the USSR in 1971
members of his party showed abnormal behavior including crying and
The spy community already knew that the Soviets had
developed microwave beaming technologies which can affect mind,
memory and health. Soviet research had already shown that it was
also possible to create hallucinations and significant perceptual
changes in people.271
The CIA's use of mind altering technologies is not new. Under
MKULTRA, the CIA conducted memory experiments on thousands of
unknowing people across the United States in 180 hospitals, research
centers and prisons. The CIA used LSD and other drugs, brainwashing,
sensory deprivation, hypnosis and many other mind control techniques
until 1976 when the United States Senate investigated these
practices.272, 273, 274
It appears the names of the programs and
their approaches changed but the programs may have continued beyond
Meanwhile the Soviets had moved way ahead of the United States in
their development of mind war technologies. They had perfected a
the Lida which produced an Extremely Low Frequency
(ELF) pulsing field. Lida was used to put prisoners of war into
trance, so that secrets could be extracted from them more readily.
As mentioned earlier, this device was tested by Dr. Ross Adey in the
United States at the Loma Linda VA Hospital.
The Soviets went on to
discover that by slight manipulation - by reversing brain polarity
(by passing very low voltage current through the front of the brain
to me back) - they could induce deep sleep. Mounting evidence also
indicated that they may have perfected "telepathic hypnosis" which
could be deployed from hundreds of miles away from the target

The Soviets took their
technologies a huge jump forward by 1975. It was that year that they
began using seven giant radio transmitters to pulse ELF waves in the
3.26 to 17.54 megaHertz range. These waves were pulsed at 6 and 11
Hertz-key brain wave rhythms - and became known to ham radio
operators as the "woodpecker" signal.
The story, like the HAARP
story, indicated that these were used for communication with
submarines, but many believe that the negative side effects were
intentional.277 These "side effects" have been speculated to have
caused communications interference, power failures, mood alterations
over significant distances, affecting a large percentage of the
population and weather modifications which have had a devastating
effect on food production since the 1970's.278
A brilliant electrophysiologist, Dr. Makela studied physics and
chemistry in 1953-59, followed by a two year study in psychology and
additional studies in electrophysiology. He continued his education
with advanced studies in Western and Chinese medicine and
acupuncture, and has practiced medicine as either a research
scientist or physician for over forty years.
During a 1994 visit with Dr. Makela, Dr. Nick Begich discussed the
HAARP project. The idea that the HAARP system could be used as a
transmitting system for brain entrainment was explored, and it
reminded Dr. Makela of a number of devices with whose features he
was familiar. The idea that HAARP could create various wave forms
across a large segment of the electromagnetic spectrum was of
concern, considering the health risks. This system had the
possibility of being misused, and the risks had not been well
defined. Inadvertently there could also be negative health effects
if the operators were unaware of the consequences of pulsed
electromagnetic radiations in the wave forms they were using - waves
which were being bounced back to the earth from the ionosphere.
In particular, when reviewing the HAARP materials, Dr. Makela was
reminded of a particular device which was marketed for a short time
in Japan. This device was a radio transmitter which carried a pulsed
wave (6-12 Hertz). The pulses were in resonance with the radio
waves, so that the radio waves acted as a carrier wave to create the
desired effect. The device was used to relax or focus attention.
effect was created wirelessly and at a distance.279 It should be
remembered that a United States military representative has already
acknowledged that they intend to use HAARP to transmit pulsed radio
frequency radiation (which we assert, if modulated in just the right
way and with the right wave form, could cause serious negative
health effects on people and animals).
HAARP specifications call for
a very versatile set of parameters280 which can do what has
otherwise only been demonstrated in the laboratory or under other
controlled conditions disrupt minds and create negative health

The United States military
is very familiar with these technologies. Captain Paul Tyler was the
director of the U.S. Navy's Electromagnetic Radiation Project from
1970 through 1977. He was quoted in a February 1985 Omni article
about the effects of electromagnetic radiations.
He concluded that
effects which could be stimulated chemically could also be
"With the right electromagnetic field, for
example, you might be able to produce the same effects as
The ideas first kicked around by the CIA and
early researchers were now being pursued by the military for use in
controlling human behavior - a prospect of profound implications.
Another player in this seemingly-disconnected group was Arthur Guy.
Under contract to the United States Air Force, he helped compile the
Radiofrequency Radiation Dosimetry Handbook. The book is the only
one of its kind that explores a number of areas required for the
development of weapon systems. In that publication, Guy's work from
the University of Washington was described. At the University of
Washington he exposed rats to low levels of electromagnetic
radiation. The effect of these exposures included immunological
stress and increases in the formation of tumors - four times the rate
of unexposed animals. This study produced negative effects at
radiation levels twenty times below the established United States
safety thermal level!282
The research in non-thermal effects is being conducted throughout

equivalent of the American Academy of Sciences - announced their
research results concerning ELF. They concluded that "nonthermal
effects due to EMF exposures can be triggered in living cells under
selected conditions." Reportedly, their research in these areas

This chapter has shown that the state of the technology in the
understanding of human physiology continues to advance at a very
rapid rate. The result has been the discovery of effects not
previously known or well understood. The controversy which still
surrounds these areas is not so much one of "does it or doesn't it
work", but more about widespread ignorance of the impact of energy
fields which surround all life.
Scientists in various fields tend to specialize. Moreover, basic
research is delayed - sometimes for decades - in being integrated into
applied technologies. This occurs largely because old standards die
hard and new breakthroughs in knowledge are slowly applied. New
research takes many years to migrate from the high-tech defense
laboratories to the practicing physician.
In the interim, the
military has free rein to use these new technologies for weapon
systems rather than healing systems.
