Psychotronic weapons: development and application
Psychotronics are commonly referred to as science, which studies the mechanisms of informational connections, the regulation and management of the psyche, physiology and energy of a person. This science is based on the statement that the basis of the development of the human body are various kinds of information processes - planetary, cosmic, cellular, bioplasmic, molecular, vacuum, quantum.
In 1921, a special committee on the effects at a distance on biological objects was created in the structure of the Cheka. And it was the development of this department that formed the basis of psychotropic and psychotronic technologies, which aroused great interest among many Russian scientists: Vernadsky, Pavlov, Dzerzhinsky, Kazhinsky. According to Candidate of Technical Sciences V. Slepukh, D. Looney and Dzerzhinsky's daughter Margarita Taurus were at the origins of the development of methods of brain influence in the USSR. The focus of these techniques was on the use of psychotropic drugs based on synthetic and natural drugs.
One of the most prominent representatives of the academic world who dealt with the problems of influencing the human brain was Bernard Bernardovich Kazhinsky. A very strange thing happened to him in his youth история. When a young scientist lived in the Caucasus, his friend, who became ill with typhoid fever, lived nearby. One night, Kazhinsky heard a ringing sound, like a silver spoon hitting the edge of a glass. At first, he did not attach any importance to this, but when the next day he went to visit a friend, it turned out that he was dead, and this happened at the very time when Kazhinsky heard a silver ring. Moreover, near the bed of the deceased he saw a glass and a silver spoon in it. And since the scientist did not believe in superstition, he decided to understand how he managed to hear this sound at a sufficiently long distance. At this time, he comes up with the idea that the human body is in fact a big radio station. The brain at the same time performs the functions of a transmitter and receiver. When a person thinks, it emits electromagnetic waves that can be received at a distance by another person. Thus, according to the scientist, this is the essence of reading thoughts at a distance. To prove the correctness of his assumptions, Kazhinsky began to study scientific works on the physiology of the nervous system of animals and humans. Kazhinsky based his reasoning on the physics and mechanics of A.Popov (the inventor of the radio), intending with the help of medicine to find in the human body (or, more precisely, in his nervous system) those elements that would perform functions identical to radio receivers and radio transmitters. So, in particular, he was able to imagine that the spiral nerve convolutions are self-induction coils, and Krause cones (nerve bodies) are antenna frames. Moreover, he also claimed that it is possible to find elements in the body that serve as detectors, amplifiers, generators and capacitors.
In the 20-ies, Kazhinsky moved to Moscow and already lectured on biological radio communications. His theory was accepted everywhere with great interest and approval, and a large number of young people always attended the lectures and reports. In 1922, Kazhinsky made a report at the All-Russian Congress of the Association of Naturalists, at the request of which the scientist received permission to work in the laboratory of A.L. Leontovich, who specialized in studying the physiology of nerve tissues.
With the active support of the chairman of the Association of Naturalists A. Modestov, Kazhinsky in the course of his research made sure that the human nervous system is indeed very similar to the radio circuit. Soon, he created a device that could pick up radio waves emitted by the brain, which was called the "electromagnetic microscope." However, the scientist failed to achieve high sensitivity of the device, because there was not enough knowledge in this area.
In the same year, he proposed a scheme for a device that was able to reproduce brain impulses, turning them into a sound signal, and transmit them over long distances. The author called his invention “Brain Radio”. The research results were published in the press. This immediately caused a great resonance in the world - several foreign universities invited Kazhinsky to give lectures. Thus, during the whole year the Soviet scientist traveled to lectures on Europe and America. And in 1924, the Presidium of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR recognized the results of his research as promising, and also allowed practical experiments.
By that time, such hypotheses began to appear abroad. In European countries, from time to time, experiments were conducted aimed at studying the electromagnetic radiation of the human body. So, for example, in Germany, Schumann and Sauerbruck recorded an electromagnetic low-frequency field, which arose with the contraction of human and animal muscles. In Italy, a professor at the University of Milan, a psychiatrist Ferdinando Cazzamali, took over the possibilities and nature of transmitting thoughts at a distance, at whose disposal were expensive and complex instruments. Moreover, under his leadership many radio engineers worked. According to the scientist himself, during the time of the research (1923-1954) he was able to identify the brain waves of a person who was thinking intensely. The length of these waves reached approximately 10-100 meters, and the signal was all the more powerful the stronger the brain was loaded. The Italian spent the researches in specially equipped lead chamber. It was placed mentally ill, whose brains were hypnotized to a high degree of tension. The electromagnetic background inside the room, which gradually increased, was measured by a scientist using a special device that looked like a telephone receiver. According to the scientist, the noise in this device was constantly changing, and when the emotions became more intense, they turned into a whistle and even to a certain degree resembled the sounds of a violin. In the event that the test subjects were in a state of depression, apathy or depression, then the signals were very weak or did not appear at all.
Kazhinsky could not boast of conducting such experiments with the mentally ill, so he could neither confirm nor deny the conclusions of the Italian scientist. At the same time, it should be noted that he took part in equally interesting experiments that confirmed the hypothesis about the possibility of transmitting thoughts at a distance, that is, the theory of “brain radio”. The leader of the experiments was V. Durov, a well-known animal trainer and zoopsychologist, who stood at the head of the “reflex factory” - a zoopsychological laboratory that worked in Moscow in the early 10th century of the last century. Famous psychologists and psychiatrists, in particular V. Bekhterev, were involved in animal experiments. Durov managed to achieve certain results in the field of mental suggestion of complex tasks to animals, which often performed them correctly.
Kazhinsky, taking part in these experiments, published a small brochure in 1923, which was called "Transmission of thoughts". In it, the author claimed that mastering the theory of "brain radio" and solving the essence of telepathy could change a person's life. Later, before his death, in 1962, Kazhinsky wrote her one book, Biological Radio Communication, in which he tried to explain the nature of this phenomenon by analyzing the practice of yogis, the radio communication of insects and animals, memory as a kind of hysteresis, and "line of sight." It should be noted that the views of Kazhinsky on the "rays of sight" are of great interest. The scientist, who was convinced that "everywhere electricity," argued that electrical processes occur within the retina that can be caught by the back of the head. At the same time, a special role was assigned to the epiphysis, the pineal gland, which, according to the scientist, is the rudiment of the third eye. And studies of the structure of the eye allowed him to make the assumption that the eye not only sees, but is also able to emit electromagnetic waves into space, which at a distance can affect people, affecting their behavior, forcing certain actions, causing certain emotions, thoughts and images.
In addition, Kazhinsky described experiments on irritation of the eyes with intermittent, flickering and continuous light, the results of which were noted in the near future by the Chekists, torturing their victims with light.
It is quite obvious that the intelligence services became interested in the inventions of Kazhinsky, in particular, his “brain radio”. In 1928, he was summoned to the GPU; after visiting the scientist in the Lubyanka, no one has ever seen him again. However, research in this direction has not been discontinued. They were engaged in 30-ies by other scientists who did not have such strict moral principles, who even conducted several experiments on prisoners. Later, the invention was classified and sent to a special archive until better times.
At this time, the most significant results in the field of psychotronic technologies and people management achieved in Germany. There, in the 1933 year, one of the most unusual official organizations of the Third Reich - “Anenerbe” was created. The organization was headed by SS Colonel Wolfram von Sievers. At the beginning of 1939, the organization “Anenerbe” was incorporated into the SS along with all societies and institutions. Germany spent enormous amounts of money on research at Anenerbe. The organization had special intelligence groups that were engaged in collecting information on scientific schools around the world in the field of psychotronic technologies in order to create a fundamentally new super-weapon. At the beginning of the 40-s, Germany became the leading scientific center in the world for studying the reserve capabilities of human physiology and psyche. The country was the only in the world Institute of Psychology. In addition, the author of the concept of psychic self-regulation, hypnologist and hypnologist Johann Schulz, worked in Germany.
The basis of its system, formed in 1932 year in auto-training, the purpose of which was to open and use the reserves of the human body, Schulz put the hypothesis of the French scientist Coue. The essence of Coue's hypothesis was the unusual action of words that are repeated many times. In addition, Schulz used the discovery of the American scientist Jacobson on psychophysical specific effects, as well as the Tibetan, Indian and Chinese teachings about unusual mental and physical phenomena, obtained with the help of specially altered states of consciousness. Schultz called his system a “new autohypnosis system” or “autogenic training.” At the end of the Second World War, all the secret development of Germany fell into the hands of the winners - engineering and rocket - to the Americans, psycho-physiological - to the Soviet Union.
Both the USSR and the USA wanted to get absolute control over human consciousness in order to be able to control people regardless of their desire and will. Thus, the idea was formulated before scientists, and they began to implement it. Soviet special services saw in the psychotronic weapons new trump card in political games. A little later, the project to create such psychotronic technologies in the world was called "Non-lethal weapons."
The Americans, meanwhile, were examining archives in which they managed to find certain information about secret Gestapo and NKVD studies on the effect of ultrasound on prisoners, some medical reports and technical documentation. A group of American scientists led by Erwin Cameron, a professor of psychiatry. His career went uphill after meeting in A. Dulles. Dulles wanted to have equipment with which he could influence the human psyche, establish total control over consciousness, control the behavior and physical condition of the enemy. Soon Cameron offered him a project called “Pure Brain”.
It is noteworthy, but in the Soviet Union a similar program was developed, which was called “Radio Son”. The Soviet project was based on Kazhinsky’s “Brain Radio”. In addition to the drawings found in the special archives, the Soviet intelligence was able to recruit one of the scientists from Cameron's laboratory, promising to pay a large card debt.
The equipment developed for the RadioSon project was carried out by a specially created joint division of the Ministry of Health and the KGB.
The laboratory received a very interesting name - PION (that is, psychological research of a special purpose). Among the scientists there were two groups: Pioneers and Pioneers. Some advocated spraying hallucinogens and the spread of psychotropic substances in the rear, others insisted on the need to develop a powerful radiator. As a result, the last word turned out to be for the PIONEERS, who were in favor of the emitter - a kind of modernized version of “brain radio”, which looks very much like a radio transmitter equipped with an antenna.
Tests of new equipment were carried out near Novosibirsk, at a military training ground. During the test, a company of soldiers consisting of an 145 man fell asleep in an instant.
All documentation on the RadioSon project was in 1957 year, as a result of political intrigues, was transferred from the KGB to the archives of the Main Intelligence Agency. And since that time all information on psychotronic weapons has been recognized as secret. In addition, everything was taken to ensure that no one even stuttered about brain weapons. In July, a joint order of the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Health issued 1958, according to which everyone who talks about brain exposure or psychotronic weapons must be isolated in special institutions with compulsory treatment.
As for the American project, it was also not successful. Initially, the experiments were carried out on alcoholics and homeless people. But for more complex experiments, healthy people were needed. This required volunteers. However, the experiment ended with terrible results: more than a dozen perfectly healthy people ended up in mental hospitals after a week of experiments. And a week later, the 8 man died. An investigation began, which resulted in the closure of the Pure Brain project.
With regard to the present period of time, it is considered that the development of psychotronic weapons in the world are not conducted. However, in reality, the situation is completely different. So, for example, a year ago a list of "non-lethal" weapons, developed by the Pentagon, appeared on the Internet. Moreover, this list contains both existing weapons and advanced developments. The list on more than one hundred pages describes in detail all the characteristics of each type of weapon, the possible consequences if it is used. Among the weapons on the list are heat rays, lasers, and sound wave emitters, which are used to control a mob, temporarily paralyze enemy activities and create disruptions in enemy equipment.
The development of a psychotronic weapon in America is carried out by a department specially created at the Pentagon - the Joint Directorate of Nonlethal Weapons, which was established in 1996. The main control task was announced to find ways to achieve victory over the enemy without explosions and firing.
It should be noted that the administration has repeatedly succumbed to sharp criticism for spending huge amounts of money on projects that were never implemented. According to the data published in 2009, none of the 50 projects developed by the management was implemented. However, the organization exists to date and is still well funded ...
