Concrete evidence that electronic mind control was an object of
study at SRI was exposed by the Washington Post on August 7,

"When the Navy awarded a contract to the Institute, the
scientific assistant to the Secretary of the Navy, Dr. Sam
Koslov, received a routine briefing on various research projects,
including SRI's. As the briefer flashed his chart onto the
screen and began to speak, Koslov stormily interrupted, 'What
the hell is that about?' Among the glowing words on the
projected chart, the section describing SRI's work was labeled,

ELF and Mind Control.

ELF stands for extremely [low] frequency electromagnetic waves,
from the very slow brain frequencies up to about 100 cycles per
second.... But the Mind Control label really upset Koslov. He
ordered the SRI investigations for the Navy stopped, and canceled
another $35,000 in Navy funds slated for more remote viewing

Contrary to Koslov's order to kill the research, the Navy quietly
continued to fork out $100,000 for a two-year project directed by
a BIONICS specialist.

Mind control is not a humanitarian pastime: the project was
military, and if SRI was indeed a source of covert EMR brain
experimentation, test subjects from the community at large were
subjected to torture plied with the same thorough disregard for
human rights as the radiation tests conducted at the height of
the Cold War.

The treatment subjects have received at the hands of their own
government would be considered atrocities if practiced in

Mind control was also used in domestic covert operations designed
to further the CIA's heady geopolitical ambitions, and during the
Vietnam War period SRI was a hive of covert political subterfuge.
The Symbionese Liberation Army, like the People's Temple, was a
creation of the CIA. The SLA had at its core a clique of black
ex-convicts from Vacaville Prison. Donald DeFreeze, otherwise
known as Cinque, led the SLA. He was formerly an informant for
the LAPDs Criminal Conspiracy Section and the director of
Vacaville's Black Cultural Association (BCA), a covert mind
control unit with funding from the CIA channeled through SRI. The
Menlo Park behavior modification specialists experimented with
psychoactive drugs administered to members of the BCA. Black
prisoners were programmed to murder selected black leaders once
on the outside.

The CIA/SRI zombie killer hit list included Oakland school
superintendent Dr. Marcus Foster, and Panthers Huey Newton and
Bobby Seale, among others. DeFreeze stated that at Vacaville in
1971-72, he was the subject of a CIA mind control experiment. He
described his incarceration on the prisons third floor, where he
was corralled by CIA agents who drugged him and said he would
become the leader of a radical movement and kidnap a wealthy
person. After his escape from Vacaville (an exit door was left
unlocked for him), that's exactly what he did.

EM mind control machines were championed at Stanford University
by Dr. Karl Pribram, director of the Neuropsychology Research
Laboratory: "I certainly could educate a child by putting an
electrode in the lateral hypothalmus and then selecting the
situations at which I stimulate it. In this was I can grossly
change his behavior." Psychology Today feted Pribram as "The
Magellan of Brain Science." He obtained his B.S. and M.D. degrees
at the University of Chicago, and at Stanford University studied
how the brain processes and stores sensory imagery. He is
credited with discovering that mental imaging bears a close
resemblance to hologram projection (the basis for transmitting
images to the craniums of test subjects under the misnomer
"remote viewing?").

The Institute is bonded incestuously to corporate sponsors.
Former SRI Chairman E. Hornsby Wasson, for example, was a
director of several major companies, including Standard Oil of
California, and he went on to become chairman of the Chamber of
Commerce and CEO of Pacific Telephone & Telegraph and Bell
Telephone of Nevada.

The SRI/SAIC psi experiments were supervised at Langley by John
McMahon, second in command under William Casey, succeeding Bobby
Ray Inman, the SAIC director. McMahon has, according to Philip
Agee, the CIA whistle-blowing exile, an affinity for
technological exotics for CIA covert actions. He was recruited by
the Agency after his graduation from Holy Cross College (the alma
mater of CIA contractees Edward Bennett Williams, attorney, and
Robert Maheu, hit man). He is a former director of the Technical
Services Division, deputy director for Operations, and in 1982
McMahon was appointed deputy director of Central Intelligence. He
left the Agency six years later to take the position of president
of the Lockheed Missiles and Space Systems Group. In 1994, he
moved on to Draper Laboratories. He is a director of the Defense
Enterprise Fund and an adviser to congressional committees.

Many of the SRI empaths were mustered from L. Ron Hubbard's
Church of Scientology. Harold Puthoff, the Institute's senior
researcher, was a leading Scientologist. Two remote viewers from
SRI have also held rank in the Church: Ingo Swann, a Class VII
Operating Thetan, a founder of the Scientology Center in Los
Angeles, and the late Pat Price. Puthoff and Targ's lab assistant
was a Scientologist married to a minister of the church. When
Swann joined SRI, he stated openly, "fourteen Clears participated
in the experiments, more than I would suspect." At the time he
denied CIA involvement, but now acknowledges, "it was rather
common knowledge all along who the sponsor was, although in
documents the identity of the Agency was concealed behind the
sobriquet of an east-coast scientist."

The Agency's interest was quite extensive. A number of agents of
the CIA came themselves ultimately to SRI to act as subjects in
remote viewing experiments, as did some members of Congress.

"If you recall," astronaut Edgar Mitchell, another participant in
the experiments, informed radio disinformation broker Art Bell on
April 30, 1996, "back in the early '70s, I did work at SRI with
Harold Puthoff and Russell Targ and Uri Geller, and I was invited
to brief the CIA on our results. George Bush was head of the CIA
at that time. Subsequently, a great deal of psychic work was done
by CIA, and very successfully because the Soviets were doing it
at that time as well -- very successfully."

Mitchell spins a cocoon of mystical yarns as outrageously
far-fetched as any of his SRI cronies. He claims to have traced
the brain's center of ESP to native creativity, a "relationship
that exists in nature, it's responsible for our
inner-experience.... It involves the zero-point field, quantum
physics, mystical experience, parapsychological functioning...."
The ubiquitous "aliens," he insists, are at the heart of the
federal UFO cover-up, visitors from a civilization "a few
million, or even a few billion years older than we are." His book
The Way of the Explorer is chock-a-block with the astronaut's
rambling Shamanic cover stories, supposedly the culmination of 25
years of research on intelligent life in the universe and the

The Agency was purportedly so taken with the SRI experiments that
the bankroll for "human augmentation" research swelled. Millions
of dollars were thrown at "Grill Flame" under (DIA) and Navy
auspices. The projects at SRI were augmented by a parapsychology
team at Fort Meade in Maryland under INSCOM and the NSA. Military
intelligence personnel were recruited, including Major Ed Dames,
the Psi-Tech founder, occultist and communer with "demons."
General Stubblebine ran the project and broadened it to include
tarot and the channeling of spirits. By this time, Puthoff and
Swann left the Church of Scientology to join a spin-off religious

The DIA inherited "Grill Flame." A reporter for the BBC
(requesting anonymity) offers a glimpse of the Army's remote
viewing project at Fort Meade, and declares he was given The
Official Line, i.e., "we were about to be used for
disinformation. As soon as I started asking hard questions, the
project was taken away from us and [given] to a far more docile
broadcaster." The British correspondent learned that medical
oversight for the psi experiments was provided by Dr. Louis
Jolyon West, then a professor of psychiatry at UCLA, one of the
most notorious CIA mind-control specialists in the country. Apart
from monitoring the health of the subjects, according to SRI
spokesmen, Dr. West conducted his own experimental studies of the
phenomenology of dissociative states," or multiple personalities,
at the Institute. Colin Ross, a specialist in dissociative
disorders, confirms that Dr. West's work for the CIA centered on
the biology or personality of dissociative states.

In "Pseudo-Identity and the Treatment of Personality Change in
Victims of Captivity and Cults" (1994), Dr. Louis "Jolly" West
examines the creation of "changelings," or dissociative
personalities that enable the subject of mind-control
conditioning to adapt to trauma. "Prolonged environmental
stress," UCLA's own ranking CIA mind-control specialist observed
(in a drastic departure from the public stance of the False
Memory Syndrome Foundation, an organization he formerly directed
as a advisory board member, on multiplicity), "or life
situations profoundly different from the usual, can disrupt
the normally integrative functions of personality. Individuals
subjected to such forces may adapt through dissociation by
generating an altered persona, or pseudo-identity."

Patricia Hearst (examined by Dr. West for trial) hosted an
alternate personality named "Pearl," he offers, a manifestation
more distinct and individuated than "Tania." The newspaper
heiress was subjected to a regimen of "persuasive coercion" (a
personal form of harassment by an organized group, any form of
intimidation short of violence) and trauma-based programmimg of a
sort developed by CIA specialists (like Dr. West) -- "violently
abducted by members of the [CIA-mustered] Symbionese Liberation
Army in February of 1974, brutalized, raped, tortured, and forced
to participate in illegal acts beginning with the bank robbery
for which she was later (in our view wrongly) convicted. The
traumatic kidnapping and subsequent 2 months of torture produced
in her a state of emotional regression and fearful compliance
with the demands and expectations of her captors. This was
quickly followed by the coerced transformation of Patty into
Tania and subsequently (less well known to the public) into
Pearl, after additional trauma over a period of many months
(Hearst & Moscow, 1988; The Trial of Patty Hearst, 1976). Tania
was merely a role coerced on pain of death; it was Pearl who
later represented the pseudo-identity which was found on
psychiatric examination by one of us (West) shortly after
Hearst's arrest by the FBI. Chronic symptoms of PTSD were also
prominent in this case."

Many victims of the CIA-anchored experimentation have been left
with multiple personalities induced at a young age, and it is
certain that the CIA can trigger induced multiple personalities
electronically from a remote source to commit any act on cue, the
ultimate Manchurian Candidate. Under Dr. West's tutelage at UCLA,
parapsychology experiments of another sort were conducted by
Kirlian aura researcher Thelma Moss, a writer for television and
a human guinea-pig herself in LSD experiments conducted in 1957.
Three years later, as a UCLA psychology student, she designed
protocols for her own LSD experiments under the supervision of
Dr. Oscar Janiger.

The CIA, of course, could not be far away. Dr. Janiger's supplier
of the drug was the legendary Captain Al Hubbard, the Johnny
Appleseed of LSD. "Nothing of substance has been written about Al
Hubbard," Janiger once said, "and probably nothing ever should."

Hubbard, a convicted rum-runner, had a knack for electronic
communications. He was recruited by the OSS by agents of Allen
Dulles and surely reported to the CIA thereafter. Hubbard, an
arch-arch-conservative, joined SRI at the urging of Willis
Harman, director of the Institute's Educational Policy Research
Center, ostensibly as a security guard. Harman, an LSD
experimenter himself, admits, "Al never did anything resembling
security work." Hubbard was employed on the Alternative Futures
Project, a corporate strategy program. Al had a grandiose idea,
one co-worker recalls, that "if he could give the psychedelic
experience to the major executives of the Fortune 500 companies,
he could change the whole of society." Hubbard was a major
supplier to university's sponsoring experimentation, and flooded
the youth subculture he despised with LSD in the 1960s. The
massive drug-dealing operation at least as large as the
government's, and had Harmon's was full support. Al Hubbard's
contract at SRI was canceled in 1974.

Among the labs closed in 1966 with the criminalization of LSD
was Dr. Janiger's.

His protege, Thelma Moss, continued to pursue experimentation
with the hallucinogen as a psychotherapeutic tool, later as an
ESP trigger and for experiments in "behavior modification." Her
increasingly bizarre interests led her to Kirlian photography,
and she set up a lab at the Neuropsychiatric Institute under Dr.

At least one volunteer in Moss' experiments alleges to have been
led down a blind alley to lifelong torture. D.S. (requesting
anonymity) appeared on Moss' doorstep in 1978. After the
experiments, she was overwhelmed by back-to-back psychic
experiences. Not true ones, she realized, but precognitive dreams
that had to be fed to me. (Biotelemetric subjects routinely
complain that their dreams are commandeered.) For 15 years she
walked through a barrage of EM novelty effects. The psychic
episodes gradually gave way to torture, including severe head
pains and endless hours of persuasive coercion, the art of
psychological paralysis honed by the CIA in the prison system.

In 1994 she began to receive non-stop audio transmissions that
still torment her, cybernetic voices registering on her brain's
primary frequency allocation, her mental channel.

Another indication that military biotechnology, cyber-psi, was
focal in Stargate research was the Agency's choice of The
American Institutes of Research (AIR) in Washington, D.C. to
evaluate the validity of remote viewing. AIR could be counted on
to keep the (mind control) secrets. In the 1970s, the Army's
Office of the Inspector General released declassified files
disclosing a series of CIA-DoD behavior modification experiments
conducted in prisons, mental hospitals and campuses from 1950
through 1971. The documents identified 44 laboratories enriched
with public tax funds for secret, inhumane brain research. The
first on the list was AIR. SRI also received funding. An in-house
study ensured CIA personnel would not be dragged in from the
cold. Some of the aims of the research:

Inducing toxic psychosis, terminal cancer, stress, sleep,
headaches and chemical lobotomies.

Developing foods that taste normal but stimulate fear and

The concoction of drugs to facilitate the brainwashing of

Using LSD-25 and electrodes in the brain to pinpoint pain

A number of SRI spinoffs have taken remote viewing into the
private sector. A brochure for the Farsight Institute states
flatly that technology is used, and promotes the alien diversion:
The Farsight Institute (TFI) was founded by Courtney Brown,
Ph.D., in 1995, evolving from a research program he conducted in
the early 1990s, described in his book Cosmic Voyage: A
Scientific Discovery of Extraterrestrials Visiting Earth (Dutton
1996). "Dr. Brown's investigations began with his training in a
remote viewing technology that had previously been used by the
U.S. military during highly classified operations in the 1980s
and '90s," according to his sales literature. "Historically, the
principal breakthroughs with this technology were made at
Stanford Research Institute in the 1970s and 1980s by the gifted
artist and natural psychic, Ingo Swann. The vision of The
Farsight Institute is to promote the continued research and
development of the most modern and effective forms of this
continually evolving technology." Other remote viewing gurus from
the SRI program have sprung up like poison mushrooms around the
country, ranting obliquely on the paranormal and scapegoating

The rhetoric is a serious development in intelligence cult
programming for mass consumption. The populace is subjected to
the same crazed systems used to indoctrinate recruits of the mind
control cults.

Psi-Tech founder Ed Dames claimed on Art Bell's syndicated radio
program that his company can comb "the collective unconscious"
for answers to such mysteries as the origins of the AIDS virus.
By scanning the "Global Mind," Dames claims, "we perceived
massive global weather changes that preclude growing crops, a
tremendous problem with epidemics and pandemics in Third World
countries because it appears the ozone problem is increasing the
mutation rate. Were perceiving a bovine AIDS that kills a lot of
babies. The future gets grimmer after that."

Parapsychology, E.T.s and the "End Times" are not just for the
cults anymore. The intelligence community wants the you to
believe ... believe ...

... the Cold War-style propagandists. Current mind control
disinformation has its foundations in anti-Communist propaganda.
Lt. Col Thomas Beardon, an Army Reservist, was made to order in
magazines published by the "Committee to Restore the
Constitution" and other ultra-conservative organizations. Beardon
had a loyal following. He made a career of writing about emergent
Soviet EM mind-control technology, but somehow it rarely seemed
to cross his mind that the U.S. might be pursuing the same
initiative. Beardon warned that the Soviets were developing
weapons that generate "time-reversed (TR) electromagnetic waves,"
and were capable of launching a "TR Blitzkrieg War" of awful
proportions. He warned grimly that the black-hearted Communists
had their hands on "time-reversal" weapons that could "take
Europe." A single flying Soviet "TR wave weapon," he claimed, was
capable of knocking out all British and American radars. It could
"kill personnel wholesale."
