Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
The best description of what it is like I have found here: http://www.mindjustice.org/2003_survey.htm
Start from “Reported mind control symptoms and descriptions include”
I will paste snips below for your enjoyment (ones that I personal identify with strongly):
Victims are subjected to various kinds of harassment and torture, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week, for years on end.
Sometimes victims describe seeing the images of projected holograms. Thoughts can be read. Most victims describe a phenomenon they call “street theater.”
Note: for me street theatre only happened at the start to make me convinced everyone knew I was this person like that dumb movie where everyone watches your life. Took me some time to figure out the truth.
Implanted thoughts and visions are common.
Note: this is only happening to me recently, but I find these easy to identify and they only happen when I am in bed at home (in a place easy for them to control my surroundings)
Microwave hearing, known to be an unclassified military capability of creating voices in the head, is regularly reported.
Wrenching of house/building structures cause loud snapping or crackling noises, often heard at precisely the point where a victim is starting to doze off to sleep.
Note: used to stop you getting sleep or wake you up to limit your sleep and the main mode of torment they use on you once you realise what is going on and can somewhat defend your self mentally from the other attacks
Victims regularly report many types of bizarre and harassive remote manipulation of electrical equipment, phone, car, TV, and computers.
Note: I’ve found it takes them around 2 weeks to make a new modified version of any electronics I buy that assist me in trying to prove they are doing this unless I carry them on me 24 hours a day (such as mp3 player to play soft music while i sleep and a second to record any strange noises)
Hard to believe I know. Consider that the technology you see mostly is what is cheap enough to be consumerable... and that the secret state is somewhere from 10 to 25 years ahead of "known" science in these fields...
Everyones voicebox works essentially the same and when thinking words signals are sent to the voicebox that are the same as but not as strong as the sigtnals used to cause speech.
Nasa already have this working for astronauts for speechless communication in space. See here
I think technologies to be able to monitor human thought to be quite scarey and quite useful at the same time. A device that could be placed inside someones throat and self powered somehow may be a deffinate big brother style thing, but it would be great to see this used for good purposes such as monitoring what politicians think when creating laws in parliment.
It just depends on the application.
Update: 01/07 22:03 GMT by KD : The blog author Joe Mullin wrote to point out that the lawsuit was not filed by the inventor, Scott C. Harris, but rather by the shell company Illinois Computer Research, which seems to exist for the purpose of filing lawsuits based on this particular patent.
Once bacteria evolve immunity to a antibiotic mechanism they pass this on to other species of bacteria by swapping plasmids. It was recently suggested that bacteria that infect humans have been passed their immunity from harmless bacteria that live in the soil (sciencemag subscription required), as many of these have already evolved mechanisms of defense against antibiotics and that the release of antibiotics into the environment is one thing contributing to the development of superbugs.
I am not aware of any antibiotics that use this same mechanism and all seem to target various pathways within the bacteria itself (see here for some examples). Is the new product to be trialled soon by Polymedix a new wonder drug or the first step in bacteria evolving immunity to our last layer of defense, our body's natural mechanism for destroying them?"
