Human Experiments

This page focuses on

  1. development of technology related to electronic harassment
  2. the history of past human experimentation (mostly in the U.S.)

We see them chronologically so that we can understand the background of electronic harassment. It can be said that we are trying to understand the crime from perpetrators’ point of view.

-In 1864, Maxwell formulated the theory of electromagnetic irradiation, [1]“bringing together for the first time electricity, magnetism, and light as different manifestations of the same phenomenon.”

-In 1888, Helz conducted an experiment which proved the existence of electronic magnetic waves.
-In 1930s, “radar” started to be used to detect planes  
-In 1897 the existence of electrons was verified in an experiment. In the same year the first wireless communication was successfully carried out.
-In 1904 the diode vacuum tube was invented; the start of electronics which deal with the current of electrons as a signal.
-World War 1(1914~1918)
-In 1930S radar started to be put into use as a method to locate planes.

    During World War 1(1914-1918), tanks, planes, submarines were used in full-scale. Chemical weapons such as chlorine and mustard gas was also used although the use of them was banned. It can be said that technological development became crucial for the victory in a war though it wasn’t new to modern wars.

1940s (Justifying human experiments for the victory in WW2)

-In 1940, microwave radar with a magnetron was developed by the U.K. and was used for the purpose of air defense against German air strikes. 
-During and around WW2(1939-1945)numbers of unethical human experiments were carried out nominally for national security.

Human experiments by Japan’s military
-Unit 731: This is a unit in the Japanese military operating in Japanese puppet state of Manchukuo in China, in charge of epidemic prevention and water purification. However, They were also engaged in production of biological weapons, carrying out numerous un-ethical human experiments.
      Not only Unit 731 but other institutions also carried out unethical human experiments in this war time in Japan.
      After the end of WW2, scientists in the unit submitted the results of the experiments to U.S. and were acquitted for their war crimes.

        Although effective treatment using penicillin was established in late 1940s, they didn’t apply the treatment to the subjects so that they could continue gaining data. Public Health Bureau kept neglecting criticism about their unethical practice, and the case was publicized by a media, which called for public criticism and ended the research in 1970s. The incident led to the realization of National Research Act in 1974.

Guatemala syphilis experiments were human experiments led by the U.S. National Institutes of Health in Guatemala from 1946 to 1948 to investigate the effectiveness of penicillin.
Doctors infected soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases, without the informed consent of the subjects. The experiment resulted in at least 83 deaths.

A lot other non-consensual human experiments were conducted during this period, which sometimes sacrificed people in weak positions such as those mentally ill, soldiers, children etc. Such brutal conducts could be justified as contribution to science and the country.

 During the World War 2, illegal human experiments using prisoners and their own citizens were carried out in various countries. Such unethical conducts funded by governments continued after the war. 
The goals of human experiments are:
1. development of treatments and cures
2  other medical and scientific research.
3. weapon research
    Experiments for weapon development were not limited in laboratories, and field experiments for actual use of the weapons were required to collect data. This includes the drop of atomic bombs. 
(2)The priority is put on development in science and technology and national security rather than on people’s lives and ethics. There were no human rights, and even the exposure of unethical human experiments, chances were the scientists who conducted the experiments were not prosecuted under the criminal law.
(3)Though unethical human experiments carried out by scientists in losing countries such as Germany and Japan were supposed to be judged in a military trial, researchers who submitted their data to the U.S. military were exempted from the prosecutions or even gained a new position to continue their research. The U.S. conducted their research not only inside the country but also allied countries and developing countries.
(4)In this period, major military institutes such as OSS(1942) in charge of intelligence and psychological warfare and its successor CIA(1947), AFSA (later renamed to NSA), Los Alamos National Lab(founded to develop atomic bombs), Walter Reed army Institute of Research(1953) were established.

1950s (Justification for Cold War. Begging of Mind Control Research)
The beginning of mind control research. 
     After the Korean War, it was reported that among those who returned from the war those who had been in prisons of Chinese forces turned to believe in communism, which evoked the interest of the U.S. military in brainwashing and psychological wareare. 

Project ARTICHOKE(1951-1953)

Project ARTICHOKE (also referred to as Operation ARTICHOKE) was a Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) project that researched interrogation methods. Preceded by Project BLUEBIRD, ARTICHOKE officially arose on August 20, 1951 and was operated by the CIA’s Office of Scientific Intelligence. The primary goal of Project ARTICHOKE was to determine whether a person could be involuntarily made to perform an act of attempted assassination.

Project MKUltra(1953-1973)
        From 1953, CIA’s mind control research project MK ultra started. It contained more than 150 subprojects carried out in various facilities including hospitals, research institutes and prisons. Chemical substances such as LSD, sensory deprivation, hypnosis and other methods without chemical substance(sound, flashing light etc.)were used in pursuit of effective mind control methods.  By the 1970s when the project was exposed in a senate committee, the related documents were intentionally destroyed ,and only very limited documents which survived didn’t show clear evidence of mind control research by electromagnetic waves, but various interesting traces which related to today’s electronic harassment phenomenon can be seen in the projects .  

Human radiation experiments
       It turned out that numbers of human radiation experiments were carried out between from 1940s to 1970s by the U.S. federal government agencies. The investigation was first started in 1993 by an article on Albuquerque Tribune which featured plutonium injection to 18 citizens from 1945 to 1947 without their consent. Later, other media followed similar cases and finally President Clinton had to form Advisory committee on Human Radiation Experiments. The report by the committee said those experiments included:

-feeding radioactive material to mentally disabled children
-enlisting doctors to administer radioactive iron to impoverished pregnant women
-exposing U.S. soldiers and prisoners to high levels of radiation
-irradiating the testicles of prisoners, which caused severe birth defects
-exhuming bodies from graveyards to test them for radiation (without the consent of the families of the deceased)

    Meanwhile, U.S. congress Government Accountability Office announced about federal government-funded human experimentation during Cold War in 1994 in congress. “At least 500,000 people were used as subjects in Cold War era irradiation, biological and chemical experiments sponsored by the federal government a congressional agency said Wednesday”*

You can learn that human non-consensual experiments are not judged by criminal law.

1960s (Discovery and development of electromagnetic weapons)

Microwave auditory effect 
      It was already reported during WW2 that they heard sound of radar. In 1961, a biophysicist Allan Frey released his experiment result that says micro pulse waves emitted at distance of several inches to some hundred feet caused ”buzzes, clicks, chirps and knocking sound.” The peak intensity affects the volume of the sound and it was below 80mW/cm2 at 1.245GHz with average electric density is 0.4mW to 2mW/cm2.

Moscow Signal- low intensity beaming
From the 1960’s through the 1970’s, there were news and intelligence reports of microwave beam being directed at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow. There are some indications that beaming of the Embassy was also conducted as late as 1983.

Project Pandora(1965-1970)
       In response to the measurement of microwaves whose intensity of 5mw/cm2 was too small to cause thermal effect, the U.S. government started Pandora Project, whose purpose was to research bioeffects of low intensity microwaves. The project was carried out in Fort Detrick, a military institution, instead of a University so that it would be kept secret, and during the project, the government kept hiding the fact of radiation from those irradiated in the Moscow embassy, and “The government did finally inform embassy personnel in the 1970s about the microwave irradiation.”*

The details and the result of the project have not publicized but from the article in FOREIGN POLICY above, you can learn some part of the project such as an experiment of irradiating monkeys with microwaves to measure their responses.

Project MK Search 
      CIA-funded MK-ultra was officially ended in 1964, but the head of the  project Sidney Gottlieb continued the project to 1972 under the new name of project MK Search

Dr. Jose Delgado and stimoceiver   
      A Spanish medical doctor who migrated to the U.S. and had a position Yale University released his research result, “Physical Control of the Mind: Toward a Psycho  civilized Society” in 1969. Dr. Delgado’s mainly research concern was his own device called ‘stimoceiver’ which controls  brainwaves by communicating with electrodes buried in animal brains including those of humans. 

<quotation >
“Stimulation of different points in the amygdala and hippocampus in the four patients produced a variety of effects, including pleasant sensations, elation, deep, thoughtful concentration, odd feelings, super relaxation, colored visions, and other responses.” 

“These specific physical reactions, such as the movement of a limb or the clenching of a fist, were achieved when Rodríguez Delgado stimulated the motor cortex. A human whose implants were stimulated to produce a reaction were unable to resist the reaction and so one patient said “I guess, doctor, that your electricity is stronger than my will”.

<quotation ends: (Wikipedia: José Manuel Rodríguez Delgado)>
     Dr. Delgado moved to Spain in 1970s and continued his research, and in 1980s he stated that he achieved brain manipulation without using electrodes or any physical contact to the brain. “Dr Delgado was able to create these effects using only a radio signal sent  to the brain remotely, using energy concentrations of less than 1/50th of what the Earth naturally produces.”*(Nick Begich ”Controlling the Human Mind: The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance.” Chapter 3 New Initiatives)

Declaration of Helsinki
      Declaration of Helsinki is a set of ethical principles about human experimentation. It was first adopted in 1964, and has been revised repeatedly until now.

1970s(concealment of non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves/revelation of mind control research
Formulation of safety standard of electromagnetic wave irradiation
     There are three types of known biological effects of electromagnetic waves:
(1)electric shock: stimulation by touching electric current or induction
(2)thermal effect: rise in body temperature by absorption of electromagnetic wave energy 
     Those two are well known and based on them.
(3)non-thermal effects: there isn’t agreed mechanism of this in academic world, but even low intensity irradiation is said to cause various effects in nervous system, reproductive system and other systems
        The safety standard for electromagnetic wave irradiation of 10mW/cm2 was formulated in 1966 by ANSI and IEEE under the influence of the military.  This figure was based on thermal effect gained in animal experiments.
       On the other hand, Soviet Union, which had much deeper understanding of non-thermal effects adopted far stricter safety standard. However, in fact the U.S. military was also thought to understand non-thermal effects of low intensity electromagnetic waves, and thus non-thermal effects were thought to be ignored for the military use and the protection of the industry. 

Concealing non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic wave
      A U.S. orthopedist Robert O. is a researcher of bioeffects of electromagnetic wave and wrote a few great books. In reference to this cover up of non-thermal bioeffects, he wrote in his book “Cross Current”:
     The military organism was designed on the 10mW standard and, once in place, it had to be defended against possibility of non-thermal bio-effects. The recognition and validation of these effects would mean the collapse of the total organism and the death of C3I. My work on electrical control systems and the bio-effects of electromagnetic fields involved me in this controversy early in the 1970s. It quickly became apparent to me that evidence for non-thermal effects was viewed as a threat to national security. Safety was not a consideration, because the military mind-set of the time held that despite that lack of actual hostilities, we were in a state of war with the Soviet Union. It was believed that our ability to prevail in that conflict required the virtually unlimited use of electromagnetic energy for all four facets of the C3I doctrine.
           This view led to the policy of denying any non-thermal effects from any electromagnetic usage, whether military or civilian. To accomplish this policy objective, several specific actions were taken, as follows.
         Control over the scientific establishment was maintained by allocation research funds in such a way as to ensure that only “approved” projects- that is, projects that would not challenge the thermal-effects standard-would be undertaken.

     In short, electronic warfare in full scale started in Vietnam War , and the military didn’t want to get the capacity of their use of electromagnetic wave limited for the health protection. So they suppressed arguing electromagnetic wave non-thermal bioeffects.

Weaponization of electromagnetic wave
      The U.S. military learned from preceding communist block countries the weaponization of this non-thermal effect of electromagnetic wave. Dr. Becker in his another book “Body Electric” wrote about a FOIA release from the Defense Intelligence Agency in 1976:
The pages released merely recount Allen Frey’s discoveries without mentioning his name, implying instead that only the Reds would be so dastardly as to investigate such things for use as weapons.

Have a look at Allan Frey and his successors research  
(1)Ongoing microwave auditory effect research
In 1975, an article by neuropsychologist Don Justesen discussing irradiation effects on human perceptions referred to an experiment by Joseph C. Sharp and Mark Grove at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research during which Sharp and Grove reportedly were able to recognize nine out of ten words transmitted by “voice modulated microwaves”.
<quotation ends> Microwave auditory effect, Wikipedia, retrieved from

      Since further research for longer message delivery would require more energy than 10mW/cm2 which was the limitation of the intensity according to the health standard, it wasn’t carried out.

(2)Controlling heart rate
      After learning a Soviet Union research of microwave influencing heartbeat, Allan Frey succeeded in disordering heartbeat of the flog by radiating microwaves. Further research conducted later revealed the results of experiments for synchronization with heartbeat differed depending on frequency, intensity and the part of the heart radiated.

(3)The effect on Blood brain barrier  
      Blood brain barrier(BBB) is part of the brain which allows exchange of substances between blood and liquid in brain cells but prevents poisonous substance getting into the brain.
       What Dr. Frey and his team found was irradiation of 0.2mW/cm2 of microwave on the brain of a rat enabled more substances go through BBB to reach the brain. Later research found that intensity, frequency and waveform affects the result of the experiment.   

Controlling by brainwave entrainment with low intensity electromagnetic fields and long distance massive attack 
       In July in 1976, people worldwide received new signals, which changed repeatedly from about 3MHz to 18MHz and therefore were called ‘woodpecker.’ The frequencies were shortwaves, which could be reflected on ionosphere, and they were modulated with 10Hz ELF pulse wave. They were emitted from Ukraine and could cover tens of kilometers of area. The energy received was very small, about tens of nanotesla.
       Dr. Puharich and Robert C. Beck researched this and carried out an experiment where they made weak signals between 10 and 100 nanoteslas and 2 to 10 Hz monitored the targets’ brain waves with electroencephalograph(EEG) and oscilloscope. What they learned is “What they observed in a controlled test was that 30% of the test subjects showed brain wave entrainment by the ELF signals with 50% showing psychophysiological reactions characteristic of specific ELF frequencies”[1](Nick Begich ”Controlling the Human Mind: The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance.” Chapter 3 New Initiatives, 2006)
        A human brain has tendency to follow outer frequency (brain entrainment). Several Hz to tens Hz of extremely low frequencies greatly influence human brains. Frequencies which cause specific effects such as “6 Hz – headache”,”7.8 and 8Hz – αwave and sense of happiness” have been researched and found out one by one. These can be used for both good use such as causing relaxation and negative use just by switching frequencies.  
      Meanwhile, Soviet Union used during Vietnam War period LIDA, a machine for interrogation using brain entrainment caused by light and audio signals(Brain entrainment can be caused by not only pulsed electromagnetic waves but also other channels such as visual and auditory ones).Ross Adey, who investigated research on this devise and also a member in Pandora project, made research to control brain waves by radiation of pulsed waves ,and in his research in 1974, he showed “fields too weak to trigger a nerve impulise can alter the way calcium inons bind to cell surfaces, causing an array of chemical reactions within the cell itself.(Nick Begich ”Controlling the Human Mind The Technologies of Political Control or Tools for Peak Performance.” Chapter 3)  

   So, not only ionized radiation which has power to change molecules directly but also non-ionized radiation also can cause chemical changes in cells by affecting electromagnetic activities in nerve system . Some mention exchange of chemicals between synapses is caused by small electric charge. Other research show aside from signal passed over synapses, organisms have other types of communication channels where electric currents or magnetic field are used. Cyclotron resonance appeared later as one of the explanations of such non-thermal effects of bioeffect of electromagnetic waves. (>1980)
       Moreover, it is thought feasible that pulse waves like “woodpecker” generated by strong antenna array can affect people in distant and wide areas. This is why HAARP (starting to be operated in 1993) and similar types of large phased array antennas around the world might be used for mind control purpose.

A patent for electronic mind control
        A U.S. patent granted in 1976 is about sending multiple microwaves to the target’s head and receiving reflected frequencies which are modulated by the target’s brain waves so as to read the target’s thoughts. The patent also says by using gained brain wave information, arbitrary brain waves are made to be emitted back to the target to control the target. It can be said this is the very technology of electronic mind control.

Bioethics and clinical research policy in the United States
       After criticism on human experimentation(e.g. “Ethics and Clinical Research” by Beecher and the exposure of Tuskegee syphilis experiment), National Research Act was established in 1974. All the research institutions funded by the federal government had to set “Institutional Review Board(IRB)”where they had to assess and approve all research projects before they applied for financial support by Department of Health and Human Services.
         In 1980s, this issue was passed to President’s Commission for the Study of Ethical Problems in Medicine and Biomedical and Behavioral Research and “common rule” was adopted by federal departments. Any research funded by those federal departments have to meet the same standard including informed consent to gain approval of IRB. The breach of the rule leads to the end of funding
to the research in the institution. FDA also set the same type of rule.
       However, what’s the actual validity of such system?  Some point out the lack of mechanism to check if scientists actually comply with those rules,  especially when it comes to military related research, much of which is classified.

Exposure of MK-ultra and COINTELPRO 
        In 1975 Church Committee in the Senate exposed misconducts of FBI military intelligence agency such CIA and NSA including CIA-funded mind control project MK-ultra. However, prior to the committee, in 1973 Richard Helms, Director of Central Intelligence at the time ordered to destroy all the related documents to the project.
        They’ve kept avoiding accountability and disclosing information about related research institutions and scientists under the name of national security.
        Mind control experiments were also conducted outside the U.S. ,and at McGill University in Canada, Donald Ewen Cameron, who served as President of American Psychiatric Association(1952–1953),the publisher of DSM, whose first volume published in 1952, and president of Canadian Psychiatric Association (1958–1959) and World Psychiatric Association (1961–1966) conducted non-consensual mind human experiments where he used so-called “psychic drive”, the method using chemical substances and sensory deprivation to weaken the subjects’ will and had them hear recorded words hundreds of thousands of times. The same technique was used by a religious cult Aleph, which released Sarin in subway trains in Tokyo to kill and injure hundreds of people in 1995. Cameron died in 1967, and the victims who filed class action in 1980s for compensation learned their experiments were funded by not only CIA but also Canadian government, which paid 100,000 dollar for each for settlement.
      CIA dealt with victims by using unofficial measures such as out of court settlement in exchange for nondisclosure agreement, and the efforts by victims and their families still continue until now.

        Church committee also revealed and criticized covert operations by FBI called COINTELPRO. COINTELPRO (syllabic abbreviation derived from COunter INTELligence PROgram) (1956–1971) was a series of covert and, at times, illegal projects conducted by the United States Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) aimed at surveilling, infiltrating, discrediting, and disrupting American political organizations.
        They targeted civil rights movement, black power movement, environmental movement etc. The methods used such as illegal surveillance using biased informants, infiltrating , discrediting and disrupting a targeted organization, psychological warfare using false information, undermining public opinion by creating skillfully edited misinformation are all seen in so called “gangstalking” or ”organized stalking “ which today’s electronic harassment victims also experience as enforcement or cover up of the remote torture.
>COINTELPRO (Mar. 29, 2020, 15:22 UTC). In Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved from )

        Project MKultra ended but none of the scientists engaged in the huge project got criminal penalty. A few cases where compensation are paid, it was tax and those scientists lost nothing personally, and instead they must have gained research results. They were able to hide for the national security, which people accepted. If the those researchers who got no penalty hoped to keep their research and experiments which was “necessary for national security,” more confidential methods than administration of chemical substances and electrical shock inside a mental hospital which leave traces and records would have been preferred. In this point, we can see a strong incentive to combine mind control research and that of non-thermal bioeffect of electromagnetic wave

1980s(the beginning of electronic harassment age)

       In 1970s, people came to think there were no non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves, mind control research including MK-ultra ended, and all human experiments funded by the federal government would be carried out with consent of the subjects under the control of Office for Protection from Research Risks. Meanwhile, a type of phenomenon started to appear in society that they were attacked by someone with some directed energy weaponry probably using microwaves.  For example, according to a survey by Technological Crime Victims Network[1], a Japanese electronic harassment victim organization, there was a significant rise in the number of people who started to recognize their victimization in 1980. 
[1]The survey of covert and overt harassments:1600 victims in Japan, Technological Crime Victims Network, p.9:

Further refinement of microwave weapon: 1986 
     Have a look at a description in “Cross Current” about a report on microwave weapon by Walter Reed Army in this period. Dr. Becker wrote:
A recent report derived from the testing program of the Microwave Research Department at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research states, “Microwave energy in the range of 1 to 5 GHz, a militarily important range, penetrates all organ systems of the body and thus puts all organ systems at risk.” Effects on the central nervous system are considered very important. The testing program, begun in 1986, is divided into four part:
(1)prompt debilitation effects;
(2)prompt stimulation through auditory effects;
(3)work interference / stoppage effects; and
(4)effects on stimulus-controlled behavior…
      The report goes on to state, “Microwave pulses appear to couple to the central nervous system and produce stimulation similar to electrical stimulation unrelated to heat”. It appears that HPM is capable of altering behavior in the same fashion as Delgado’s electrical stimulation.
<quotation ends: Robert Becker “Cross Currents. The Promise of Electromedicine, the Perils of Electropollution, p.304-305>(* the line arraignment for itemization is by the webmaster)

      Becker also mentions a 1982 review on biotechnology by air force, which says the potential military use of ELF such as cloud controlling and anti-personnel techniques.

Cyclotron resonance 
        In the experiments of non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves, malfunction of Blood-brain barrier and the efflux of calcium ions from brain tissue succeeded only in limited “window” of frequency and intensity. In 1980, Blackman found that even when the other properties in the laboratory were the same, the result of experiments changed depending on the difference of earth magnetism. Earth magnetism is magnetic fields the  Earth has, with its north pole located in a place in Southern Hemisphere and its south pole in Northern hemisphere, that’s why the needle of a compass points to the north pole. which The magnetic fields range from 24,000 to 66,000 nano tesla. The near to the pole, the stronger the magnetic field. The result of the experiments led to the idea of cyclotron resonance.
        A charged particle moves in a circular path in a uniform magnetic field perpendicular to the direction of the magnetic field, and the frequency of circular motion is called cyclotron frequency, which is calculated by electric charge, magnetic flux density, and the mass. Cyclotron resonance is a phenomenon that  a charged particle resonantly absorbs electromagnetic waves with the same frequency of its cyclotron frequency and increases its orbital radius.
        Ions such as hydrogen ions and natrium ions have their cyclotron resonance frequency calculated by the electric charge and the mass. This explains why low intensity non-ionized irradiation such as microwaves can cause chemical and physiological changes, and the effects are caused in the window frequency, and also earth magnetism has influence on it.
        In the “Controlling the Human Mind, in reference to military research on the application of cyclotron resonance, Dr. Begich wrote:
The concept of cyclotron resonance was applied to the research carried out by the U.S. Naval Medical Research Center. The experimenters were able to apply external fields in sch a was as to affect the brain  chemistry of rats. The same effects can be created in humans. The Navy research showed that they were able to affect the lithium ion, occurring naturally in the brain, so as to create the same effect as if they had treated the animal with a chemical introduction of lithium(lithium is used as a strong antidepressant). Stated another way, you could say that by harmonizing or resonating with the frequency codes of naturally occurring chemicals, you could amplify their potency in the body of the animal, thereby creating the same chemical changes as would have occurred with a massive dose of the chemical being administered.

Capability of electromagnetic attack network
         Considering ion cyclotron resonance enables low-intensity electromagnetic waves to cause change in organisms, it could be thought possible that properly adjusted weak electromagnetic waves interfere with earth magnetism to influence people staying in a certain area. Robert Becker found this danger in the military program called ‘Ground Wave Emergency Network‘ and pointed out in his Cross Current.
         Ground Wave Emergency Network is a network of radio towers which in case of emergency where all communication was damaged by electromagnetic pulse created by atomic bombs of Soviet Union were supposed to be used to deliver a command to a plane to fight back with nuclear weapons with 150 -175 kHz groundwaves (not reflecting on ionosphere). The radio towers were built in 1980s, but only 58 out of originally planned 240 across the U.S., and they are called GWEN Towers.  
        Becker warned that those antennas to be placed every 200 miles could emit frequencies which make the earth magnetism in that certain area special. Since such radio towers could cover across the U.S., Becker doubted if the military could hold the demand for the potential use of them. 
        In addition, , when strong phased array antenna like HAARP is used, the same effect might be made across countries or continents. inter-continental as you saw in the section of “Woodpecker.”
        By the way, those GWEN Towers are pointed out as one of the methods being used to attack  today’s electronic harassment victims in the following documentary program. A victim since 1980s also appeared on it. Please find it on the internet.

As for electromagnetic aspect of the circumstance surrounding us now, for example we use ‘cell phones’, which means mobile phones available by moving in combination of cell-like areas form one to another, each of which is covered by an antenna. Since NTT started the commercial mobile phone network(1G) in 1979, the wireless telecommunication and internet system have been spreading until today, we live in seamless arrays of antennas which can be used for electronic harassment and which cover the whole countries, always carrying with you a device with another antenna in your cellphone.

        The biography of John J. Williams, whose books are mentioned on the page TECHNOLOGY, and who runs “Lone Star Consulting Inc.” which provides countermeasure devices against electronic harassment, is that he served for Navy but later worked for a medical facility for addicts and learned mind control methods there, according to one of his books. He wrote in his book “Under Attack! about field experiments of electromagnetic weapons that, ”And the U.S. Government is also known to be behind field experimentation of EMF weapons…”*
         In the same book, his also explains the involvement of DOD and CIA in such field experiments, the same type of research by other countries such as Japan and USSR and China, and collaboration of countries for such research.

1990s (The practical use of electromagnetic weapons)
says silent-sound weapons with subliminal messages were used in the Gulf War. Controlling the Human Mind also has the reference on ‘Silent Subliminal.’
The use of these new techniques went well beyond the injection of fear and may have involved more powerful signal generators, which caused the other symptoms that the world observed including head pain, bleeding from the nose, disorientation and nausea – all possible with so-called nonlethal weapons.

Covert operations by secret services including electronic harassment
      Carl Clark said from 1980 to 2003 he contracted with CIA and other secret services for various infiltrating operations. In the interview by a German magazine, raum & zeit he said he was engaged in types of operations that victims of ‘gangstalking’ complain about including break in, and also testified that in another department in the same operation, there was the division in charge of microwave weapons:
Carl Clark: I worked freelance from 1980 to 2003 for various secret services. I worked for the American Central Intelligence Agency(CIA) up to 19997. I then worked for the Israeli Secret Services. Mossad and for the Anti-Defamation League(ADL), a US organization against discrimination and defamation of Jews. I was also employed by MI5, a subgroup of the British Secrete Services. I later moved to the Police Secret Services as well as to the secret services of an investigation laboratory. I was deployed in European operations in Paris, Zurich, Berlin, Dusseldorf, Munich, Madrid, Lyon, Bilbao and Moscow…
Armin Gross: What exactly did you do?
Carl Clark: I spied on people for long periods, eavesdropped on their conversations. I also had orders to confuse or deceive them. I would therefore secretly force my way into their homes, remove some things and just move others around. I would then delete data from their computer…
Armin Gross: What type of individuals were you instructed to target?
Carl Clark: People who were politically relevant. Likewise, people who opposed or acted against the interests of large companies such as the pharmaceuticals. Some belonged to criminal gangs, but there were two or three target that had nothing on them at all as far as I could make out…

Armin Gross: Did you also use such weapons?
Carl Clark: No, I was responsible for surveillance. Colleagues from special departments did this. However, I was at times on site when these weapons were deployed…
Carl Clark: (omitted) For example three radar devices would sometimes be positioned in the vicinity of the target. The radar emits electromagnetic waves, some of which pick up the target and the result is then evaluated. My friends who work in the special department could then follow the target all day on their computers… <quotation ends:Secret Surveillance and Electromagnetic Torture by the Secret Services’ raum&zeit, retrieved from>

       U.S. patent No.5,507,291 granted in 1996“Method and an Associated Apparatus for Remotely Determining Information as to Person’s Emotional State,” the abstract says:
In a method for remotely determining information relating to a person’s emotional state, an waveform energy having a predetermined frequency and a predetermined intensity is generated and wirelessly transmitted towards a remotely located subject. Waveform energy emitted from the subject is detected and automatically analyzed to derive information relating to the individual’s emotional state. Physiological or physical parameters of blood pressure, pulse rate, pupil size, respiration rate and perspiration level are measured and compared with reference values to provide information utilizable in evaluating interviewee’s responses or possibly criminal intent in security sensitive areas…

Transcranial magnetic stimulation(TSM) and electronic mind control
        There is a medical method ,which started to be actively used in 1990, called Transcranial magnetic stimulation, where you generate magnetic field with a strong electromagnet put near the patient’s head. The magnetic force generate electric currents in the brain, which stimulate neurons, and by the repetitions that(fTSM) you try to cure neurological symptoms such as headache or tinnitus and mental disorders such as depression and hallucination.

        On the other hand, Michael Persinger, a professor of psychology at Laurentian University, conducted experiments where he used TMS and helmets with electromagnets to stimulate the subjects ‘brains, so that they could experience supernatural phenomenon(God helmet). He also tried to scientifically explain supernatural phenomenon  by showing the relation between parapsychological experiences such as UFO and earthquakes(change in geomagnetic field).
        Alefu, a former Japanese cult which released deadly sarin in subway trains in Tokyo in 1995, made use of not only use of“psychic drive” for mind control purpose but also rough “God helmets” on which electric current can be run. Meanwhile, some of today’s electronic harassment victims have reported that they were given fake parapsychological experiences such as sent visions and voices and the voices sometimes had a typical talk script that says the attackers were aliens.”

      John J. Williams, who runs a company providing countermeasure devices against electronic harassment wrote in a manual, Free Mind Control and Electronic Attack Tutorial:
 If you had asked us before about 1995 who was attacking people using mind control devices and electronic attack devices, we would have told you that it was very likely a U.S. military or intelligence agency. However, today, there is an almost endless number of possibilities…   
<quotation ends:John J. Williams“ Free Mind Control and Electronic Attack Tutorial”, Lone Star Consult Inc. >
      As possibilities he mentions companies and criminal organizations to individuals, pointing out the spread of such technology in the world especially after the terrorists attacks in the U.S. in 2001. He also emphasizes his company doesn’t sell devices to harm people.
         So, it can be said that nowadays relatively simple devices for electronic harassment can be obtained and used by various organizations. You will be able to modify a microwave oven to a weapon for thousands dollars or less. However, whoever is doing the criminal action, as long as your government keeps hiding such crime and technology and ignoring the victims, all the crimes done with energy weapons will not be penalized, which is the important point.

2000s to present (Justification for war on terrorism, spread of electromagnetic weapons)
-From 1998, the number of people who complained about electronic harassment increased significantly.
-A company gained a contract with U.S. navy for producing a weapon called MEDUSA, which sends sound on pulsed microwaves to incapacitate targets.

A lecture at WestPoint (U.S. military academy)by James 
Giordano, a neuroscientist of Georgetown University in 2018. He discussed the development of technologies in U.S. and other countries which affect human nerves to attack enemies or enhance allied soldiers’ performance, many of which seem technologies allegedly used in electronic harassment.  However, what is not discussed in his lecture is “who they use as human experiment subjects to develop such technology.” They definitely need data taken not only in laboratories but also in field experiments to develop effective EM weapons.

>Dr. James Giordano: The Brain is the Battlefield of the Future

        Only limited topics are dealt with on this page, but as technology advances, the goals of human experiments with electronic harassment will vary from research for electronic mind control and bio effects of electromagnetic wave irradiation for a long term, to BMI, remote sensing technology, telemetric for various bioinformation, accumulation of brain wave and similar brain information patterns, more accurate remote reading of people’s minds, and more positive medical application of electromagnetic frequencies for medical purposes as and ability enhancement. The needs for human experimentation with electromagnetic waves seems rapidly increasing. Therefore, it is not strange at all that scientists have a pretext of national security and public interest for justification of non-consensual human experimentation, saying “If we fall behind them, it will become national security crisis, “or ”In the war on terrorism where anyone can be a terrorist but we must prevent them from using bio weapons and chemical weapons, it is necessary to remotely obtain what all the people think and influence them without letting know them we do,”

(1)During World War 2 and the adjacent periods, non-consensual, non-ethical human experiments were performed in some countries and they were continued during the following Cold War.

(2)The purposes of human experimentation are medical research, other scientific research and research for weapon development. Besides, from around World War 2 period, effective interrogation and mind control methods emerged as another concern. 

(3)It seems that even after the exposure of military or government-funded non-consensual human experiments, scientist who conducted the experiments were not convicted of criminal penalty. The government seems able to reject to  disclose detailed information under the pretext of “national security.” People also seems to have accepted those scientists being outside their legal system.

(4)Human experiments have been carried out in the countries or in allied countries or in developing countries. Governments sometimes cooperate to abuse their own citizens. Since the U.S. government is not liable for actions it carries out in another country, foreign victims of human experiments cannot sue the U.S. government.

(5)In 1970s, various non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves were getting clear from experiences, but U.S. and allied countries decided to hide them for military and industrial interest, and only thermal effects officially came to be believed existing.

(6)In 1970s, Church Committee and the similar committees dealt with abuse of power by military agencies and FBI, and Project MK ultra was closed (but scientists involved weren’t accused of under  criminal law). The rise of consciousness of human rights and the establishment of protection of subjects of human experimentation might make quite appealing the use of non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic wave for the purpose of mind control. They are adjustable in various ways, and has potentials to attack distant and wide areas. Irradiating electromagnetic waves with lower intensity than the health standard might not be illegal in the first place. They also had a good cause of competing with  communist countries technology developments. Scientists who hadn’t been penalized might seek for more subtle ways to continue their human experiments by the use of subcontractors and segmentation of the projects instead of just giving up.

(7)Patents, military reports and other documents show development of electromagnetic weapons in 1970s and 1980s. However, such secret development would require human secret human experimentation.

(8)At the same time, those who complained they were attacked by electromagnetic weapons appeared and increased (They already existed at least in 1970s although the number would be limited). We understand that weapon development does not finish only inside a laboratory but field experiments, or in other words actual use are necessary in order to collect practical data. Especially when you had to use non-thermal bioeffects of EMW which were not fully understood and which could be used for various ways such as brain entrainment and cyclotron resonance, with a lot of obstacles such as walls and other electromagnetic fields in the environments, and for the purpose of mind controlling, which had very social phenomenon, you had to target real people living in a real social scene to obtain effective data.  

(9)In 1990s, it seems that development of directed energy weapons as well as brain research gained momentum and the number of cases of electronic harassment also significantly increased. So, it can be thought that the technology spread and various countries got involved in developing electromagnetic weapons. In the U.S., especially after terrorist attacks in 2001, the budget for homeland security increased and  people accepted more surveillance, which would be easier environment to carry out covert remote human experiments.  

(10)Now, there are not only medical research and mind control but numerous reasons for cover human experiments such as development of remote individual recognition system, remote sensing of various bioinformation, BMI etc. On the other hand we have more cases of electronic harassment. 

*The following movie of an interview with Barrie Trower, a former MI5 employee and a microwave expert, is recommended to be watched as summery of this page, so that you can deepen what you have learned so far.

Movie 1(White TV)  
(*1 We are not so sure if the environmental electromagnetic wave is such devastating as   described in the interview. *2 The mentioned case of Voice to Skull technology application in order to repel shoplifters might possibly be the case with subliminal message as far as the webmaster knows.)
Movie2: (ICAACT)

        According to all the information and discussion seen above, it can be said that a substantial number of field experiments of electromagnetic weapons as well as the cases of their actual use will be being carried out now. At the same time, we have lots of people who complains they are targeted by such weapons. Their symptoms vary, most of which can be caused by non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves, and cases are also reported which show the attacks are caused by electromagnetic waves, such as reduction of the symptoms by shielding and measurement of strong electric fields. Many of the covert operations and experiments can be thought of government-funded, some by companies and criminal organizations. Even an individual with proper knowledge and resource may be able to  utilize the technology to some extent. The complaints will include all such cases.

       On the other hand, if non-thermal bioeffects of electromagnetic waves have been kept secret in many countries and if such various research involve military and government related organizations, then authorities will never deal with complaints about electronic harassment, which is what has happened.

       Unethical covert human experiments might be done by scientists for a “justifiable” cause on their side such as “to develop technology necessary for national security “or ”for the development of medicine and science“, with proper governmental funding originating from your tax. Just as “a mistake” in airstriking, which is definitely killing , never brings a criminal charge to them, or unconstitutional violation of privacy under international surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden still has been accepted for the sake of national security, those human experiments subjects who are deprived of basic human rights might be thought of as unavoidable sacrifice for the national security and technological development. Maybe sadism and sexual tastes sometimes reported by victims will be just subtle errors in the experiments or part of mind control program.

(1)There is plenty of circumstance evidence which suggests human experiments and crime by electromagnetic waves are ongoing. Whatever entity inflicts the harm, it is almost impossible to solve the problem unless the government decides to do so. Proving their individual crime case in court is quite difficult for most citizens with limited funding and other resources such as proper knowledge, human connection and mental strength, which leads the idea that the problem should also be addressed by cooperated social activities aiming to change the governments’ decision.

(2)The history tells us military, governments and other public sectors have basic a strategy to deny allegation of illegal human experiments until they can. It will be also almost impossible for a subordinate to change the decision made by someone in the highest rank in a bureaucratic organization. So it is necessary to address people and institutions outside the government such as politicians, civil activists journalist etc.

(3)Perpetrators might have legal logic and system which enables them to carry out the crime and hide it from general public. Above all the core of their strategies is to recognize those complaining about electronic harassment as schizophrenic.

So what we can do is:

  1. for victims of the crime to learn ways to objectively and effectively explain their own situations, especially by giving as much information as possible which tells their case is physical and intentional attack,
  2. to learn to explain about the technology used in the crime
  3. to try to collect as much physical and scientific data as possible
  4. and by using all above to thoroughly keep appealing to the general public

     I wish this page and the website to be of any help for 1 to 4 .

       The goal of this page is to understand the background of electronic harassment by over-viewing the history of both the development of related technology and past non-consensual human experiments, and therefore comprehensive technology allegedly used in this crime are not fully argued here. For instance, the use of sound waves is one of the major methods for electronic harassment, which is omitted here. Likewise Technology for telemetry, remotely getting information of the target is also crucial for this crime, and seemingly involves implant, radar, and various brain-imaging technology, which are not dealt with on the page. The page mainly focuses on technology to attack targets. In addition, the goal of our activism is to find countermeasure against attacks by using not only electromagnetic waves but also any technology civilians cannot easily deal with ,including bio and chemical weapons. Hopefully we can argue about them on another page.
