Getting a patent on an idea gives one intellectual property rights over that idea, barring anyone else from using it and claiming it as their own. There are millions of patents for millions of ideas so nobody thinks to really search through them for anything odd, however, the government has patented ideas for technology so otherworldly that it makes anything from Star Trek (1) look barbaric. The public knows that the government has a history of trying to perfect mind control techniques, most notably, the MK-Ultra initiative (2) in the sixties. Though most people believe the government’s interest in mind control stopped at MK-Ultra, government patents tell a different story.
Though the government has patented many technologies that could be used in unthinkable ways against the people, we are only going to discuss the ones most shocking. Patent US6091994A describes “a method and apparatus for manipulating the nervous system by imparting subliminal pulsative cooling to the subject’s skin”. The patent describes how if certain frequencies (½ Hz, 2.4Hz) are pulsated subliminally to a subject (or group of subjects), the specific tone of the frequency changes the mental state of the subject. The ½ Hz resonance causes relaxation, sleepiness, a knot in the stomach, and sexual arousal depending on the precision of the frequency. The 2.4 Hz resonance causes certain cortical (cerebral cortex) activity to slow down. So the idea proposed states that frequencies can be subliminally transmitted to people that can lower brain function or force a mental state upon a person regardless of their choosing to feel that way. Theoretically, the government could air the 2.4Hz frequency during a program that the whole country watches (like the Super-bowl (3) for example) and lower the prefrontal cortex activity of the whole country at once. Even worse, the government could create a propaganda video including frequencies that literally change the minds of the people watching.
Expanding on this idea is Patent US6506148B2 which discusses how the 1/2Hz and 2.4Hz frequencies can be embedded within programs to manipulate the nervous system of anyone nearby. The first patent discussed wouldn’t have huge implications for the government’s concentration on mind control if it weren’t for this patent. By discussing how these frequencies can be overlayed subliminally over programming shows that the idea of broadcasting these frequencies subliminally over programming isn’t out of the realm of possibility. Patent US5159703A discusses a separate technology for creating information embedded frequencies that can be broadcasted over loudspeakers, transferring the embedded information via frequency into the mind of the listener. These patents, along with many more not mentioned, unveils the abuses of technology that could easily be used to manipulate the minds and the nervous systems of the unsuspecting population in favor of government agenda.
Along with altering the human nervous system and thoughts, there have also been patents on technology to remotely detect people’s emotional states. Patent US5507291A discusses how a technology called waveform energy can be transmitted to a subject, and the subject will unknowingly send waveform energy back to the transmitter after receiving it, which reveals the emotional state of the person. Though this technology is stated as being useful for criminal investigations or analyzing interview answers of the subject being interviewed, this technology takes away any sense of privacy if utilized in the right way. No longer will people be able to conceal their beliefs if their emotional state can be determined instantly via frequencies. Another government patent discussing very similar ideas is Patent US3951134A, which also discusses the remote decoding of emotional states using waveform frequencies.
Americans hide behind locked doors and private property fences with a whole armory beside them ready to battle tyranny, but they never would have guessed that their government could be using technology to remotely alter their nervous system and behavior. The next uprising of the people won’t be deflated with riot gear and rubber bullets, rather frequencies that dull the minds of the masses into submission. Anyone against the system will never go unknown because the technology exists to remotely view anyone’s emotional state. Just being in the room with technology could mean a possible compromise to the nervous system via frequency. The scary implications of government patents need to be addressed by the general public, especially considering there aren’t any laws in place protecting the people from being subject to these technologies. The discussion about this issue is little to none, yet it could be the force that turns all the power of the people over into the hands of the government. In the future, where technology and media become an unavoidable part of life (and it’s already getting there) then who’s to stop the government to broadcast these frequencies on a country-wide scale to create a nation of always complacent minds? I urge whoever’s reading to look through the sources for yourself and really consider the different possibilities of these technologies.
1.Star Trek- 60’s sci-fi television show that showcased technology that the people of the time thought would be the technology of the future
2. Mk-Ultra is a documented military mind-control experiment where the CIA was found to be drugging people with hallucinogens and torturing them to find a way to break down the human psyche. Mk-Ultra was considered a ridiculous conspiracy until the CIA declassified it.
3. Super-bowl- Final football game of the season where the winning team gets rings. It would act as a perfect medium for a mass subliminal broadcast because nearly ⅓ of the American population watches every year
