I’ve seen THE BODY ELECTRIC. Have you?

I’ve been rereading a favorite book and want to share a passage with all you Sheepeaters. The book was published in 1985 and was written by Robert O. Becker, MD and Gary Seldon. It’s title? “THE BODY ELECTRIC: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life”.

I strongly recommend anyone interested in unlocking the mysteries of modern life gets their hands on a copy and reads at least the Introduction, Ch. 13, 14, 15, and the Postscript. The following excerpt is from Ch. 13 appropriately titled “Maxwell’s Silver Hammer”. Bang, bang, bitches… and bear in mind that this book was published all the way back in 1985.

“The human species has changed its electromagnetic background more than any other aspect of the environment. For example, the density of radio waves is now (1985) 100 million to 200 million times the natural level reaching us from the sun. Nor is there any end in sight…In a sense, the entire population of the world is willy-nilly the subject of a giant experiment. Electropollution has been the subject of heated public debate, and unpublicized misgivings for decades before that. Unfortunately, the question of risk has been asked too late. Daily exposure of nearly everyone is a fait accompli…

Subliminal activation of the stress response is one of the most important effects that EMFs and noninizing radiation have upon life but it’s far from the only one. These unfamiliar energies produce changes in nearly every bodily function so far studied… The most disturbing data come from work on the systems that integrate other bodily functions — the central nervous, cardiovascular, endocrine, and growth control systems… Several studies on both sides of the Iron Curtain have found that rats are generally less active and less exploratory of their environment after being dosed with microwaves, although some frequencies induce restlessness. In contrast, ELF magnetic or electric fields almost always produce hyperactivity and disturbed sleep patterns in rats… pulses for changing calcium flow in intact nervous systems do exist that interfere with concentration on complex tasks, disrupt sleep patterns, and change brain function in other ways that can’t be predicted yet.

This research points toward “confusion beam” weaponry, so effective windows may already have been found, but they haven’t been reported in the open literature…One more link in the bioclock-interference-and-stress response has come from the 1980 work at the Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory in Richland, Washington. Working with rats, researchers there found that a weak 60-hertz electric field (only 3.9 volts per centimeter) canceled the normal nightly rise in production of the pineal gland hormone melatonin, the main hormonal mediator of bio-cycles… Such disruption would trigger the generalized stress response. In addition, the wrong timing signals would likely throw off the mitotic cycle time of every cell, interfering with growth processes throughout the body…the most important result is a decrease in the body’s ability to fight infection and cancer…

The admittedly sketchy evidence to date suggests that our electropollution is presenting us, and perhaps all animals, with a double challenge: weaker immune systems and stronger diseases. We shouldn’t be surprised, then, by the onslaught of ‘new’ ailments, beginning about 1950 and accelerating toward the future.

“INVISIBLE WARFARE: The Soviets have led the way in learning about the risks of electropollution, and as we’ve seen they’ve apparently been the first to harness those dangers for malicious intent. However, the spectrum of potential weapons extends far beyond the limits of the Moscow signal, and Americans have been actively exploring some of them for many years.

Most or all EMR weapons can be scaled up or down for use against individuals or whole crowds and armies… In addition to the methods of damaging or killing people with EMR, there are several ways of controlling their behavior…

Even instincts and emotions can be changed: In one test a mother giving continuous care to her baby suddenly pushed the infant away whenever the signal was given. Approach-avoidance conditioning can be achieved for any action simply by stimulating the pleasure and pain centers in an animal’s or person’s limbic system…

Eventual monitoring of evoked potentials from the EEG, combined with radio-frequency and microwave broadcasts designed to produce specific thoughts and moods such as compliance and complacency, promises a method if mind control that poses immense danger to all societies — tyranny without terror. Scientists involved in EEG research all say the ability is still years away, but for all we could sense of it, it could be happening right now. Conspiracy theories aside, the hypnotic familiarity of TV and radio, combined with the biological effects of their broadcast beams, may already constitute a similar force for mass standardization, whether by design or not… The potential dangers of televised lethargy are no yawning matter.  It’s well known that the relaxed attention to any mildly involved stimulus, such as a movie or TV program, produces a hypnoid state, in which the mind becomes especially receptive to suggestion…

The Central Intelligence Agency funded research on electromagnetic mind control at least as early as 1960, when the notorious MKULTRA program, mostly concerned with hypnosis and psychedelic drugs, included money for adapting biolectric sensing methods (at that time primarily the EEG) to surveillance and interrogation, as well as for finding ‘techniques of activation of the human organism  by remote electronic means.’ In testimony before the Senate Subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research on September 21, 1977, MKULTRA director Dr. Sidney Gottlieb recalled: ‘There was a running interest in what effects people’s standing in the field of radio energy have, and it could easily have been that somewhere in the many projects someone was trying to see if you could hypnotize somebody easier if he was standing in a radio beam.’

How many of the EMR weapon possibilities have actually been developed and/or used?  Those not privy to classified information have no way of knowing.  There are plenty of rumors.  Boris Spassky claimed he’d lost the world chess championship to Bobby Fischer because he was being bombarded with confusion rays.  I recall hearing about one secret American experiment in which a scientist was supposedly set up with invitations to three conferences to give the same presentation each time.  The first one went fine, but at the last two he was irradiated with ELF waves, reportedly to induce Adey’s calcium efflux, and he became confused and ineffective…

Considering the relentless pace of arms development, we would have to be very naive to assume that the United States has no electromagnetic arsenal…. Both [the Russians and Americans] may be embarking on hostilities whose consequences for the whole biosphere no one can yet forsee.  Even if the Soviets have begun an electromagnetic war and we’re totally unprepared to fight back, I doubt that a simple buildup and retaliation are the best course for our own survival.

The extent of the danger can be dramatized best by considering one last potential weapon.  Around 1900, Nikola Tesla theorized that ELF and VLF radiation could enter the magnetosphere, the magnetic field in space around the earth, and change its structure.  He has recently been proven right… Satellite measurements have proven that artificial energies from power lines are amplified high above the earth, a phenomenon known as power-line harmonic resonance (PLHR).  Radio and microwave energy also resonates in the magnetosphere.  This amplified energy interacts with the particles of the Van Allen belts, producing heat, light, X rays, and, most important, a “fallout” of charged particles that serve as nuclei for raindrops.  Recent work with sounding rockets has matched specific areas of such ion precipitation with the energy of specific radio stations, and established that the sifting down of charged particles generally occurs east of the EMR source, following the general eastward drift of weather patterns.

In 1983, measurements from the Ariel 3 and 4 weather satellites showed that the enormous amount of PLHR over North America had created a permanent duct from the magnetosphere down into the upper air, resulting in a continuous release of ions and energy over the whole continent.  In presenting this data at the March 1983 Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility in Zurich, K. Bullough reminded the audience that thunderstorms have been 25 percent more frequent over North America between 1930 and 1975 than they were from 1900 to 1930, and suggested that the increased energy levels in the upper atmosphere were responsible.

Since the mid-1970s there has been a dramatic increase in flooding, drought, and attendant hardships due to inconsistent, anomalous weather patterns.  It appears likely that these have been caused in part by electropollution and perhaps enhanced, whether deliberately or not, by the Soviet woodpecker signal.  It now seems feasible to induce catastrophic climate change over a target country, and even without such weather warfare, continued expansion of the electrical power system threatens the viability of all life on earth.

Three dangers overshadow all others.  The first has been conclusively proven: ELF electromagnetic fields, vibrating at about 30 to 100 hertz, even if they’re weaker than the earth’s field, interfere with the cues that keep our biological cycles properly timed; chronic stress and impaired disease resistance result. Second,the available evidence strongly suggests that regulation of cellular growth processes is impaired by electropollution, increasing cancer rates and producing serious reproductive problems.  Electromagnetic weapons constitute a third class of hazards culminating in climate manipulation from a sorcerer’s-apprentice level of ignorance.

Everyone worried about nuclear weapons as the most serious threat to our survival.  Their danger is indeed immediate and overwhelming.  In the long run, however, I believe the ultimate weapon is manipulation of our electromagnetic environment, because it’s imperceptibly subtle and strikes at the core of life itself.  We’re dealing here with the most important scientific discovery ever — the nature of life.  Even if we survive the chemical and atomic threats to our existence, there’s a strong possibility that increasing electropollution could set in motion irreversible changes leading to our extinction before we’re even aware of them.”

WHEW!  That’s a mouthful.  There you go, folks.  Act like you know.  One Love.  Peace

One thought on “I’ve seen THE BODY ELECTRIC. Have you?”

  1. Howdy Max, Another interesting topic as navigate through this time-line. Thanks for your work. I will continue to teach what I know while exploring and questioning what I may not understand, all while acting (believing) like I know. Take care buddy and keep looking up. Chris
