More on synthetic telepathy

238px-Frontotemporal_degenerationAnother news item was published this week (in the U.K.’s Telegraph) about scientists’ recent strides toward synthetic telepathy. Sources now admit that British researchers have learned how to send specific brain signals between 2 different people’s minds — using the internet. Again they’re promoting this as a way to help disabled people. Personally, I find such a claim disingenuous. Just consider this synthetic telepathy research in the context of the following quote by military scientist Dr. Jose Delgado, who in 1974 testified before Congress that:

“We need a program of psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm can be surgically mutilated … Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. … We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain.”

Funded by the U.S. Air Force, the Office of Naval Intelligence, and Yale, Delgado created the Stimoceiver, an electronic brain implant used to control the brain by transmitting electrical signals. He also worked on the “Pandora Project,” which used electronics to cause a soldier to lose control during battle; and on experiments designed to artificially cause schizophrenia in human subjects.

I don’t know about you, but I’m not too thrilled about the prospect of people with this mindset tapping into and possibly manipulating our thoughts.
