  • Injuries Lead Gopher, NFL Star Back To His Passion Reporting Mike Max August 4, 2011 11:17 PM

  • "MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Ben Utecht’s life has been a journey worthy of a book. Or in his case — a song.
    The former Gopher grew up in Hastings and went on to fame and fortune in professional football, until concussions claimed his career and changed his personality.
    Those head injuries lead Ben back to an old passion that now brings him more joy than football.
    He lived the charmed life. He was the hometown boy that went to play for the Gophers. Then, he married his college sweetheart, who happened to be Miss Minnesota. Next, it was on to the NFL, where the undrafted free agent ended up a starter — for the Super Bowl champion Indianapolis Colts.
    He moved on to a big-money contract in Cincinnati and that’s where his life got fuzzy. He took one too many blows to the head and ended up on the sideline.
    "It was a scary time. I remember being in the hospital that night with 1,000 questions," he said.
    His fifth diagnosed concussion ended his career and changed his life. The carry over included not remembering a wedding he attended of one of his friends just two years prior.
    "I was at a old teammate’s house, Matt Anderle, played for the Gophers. I was in Matt’s wedding and I sang a song at his wedding and he began talking about it and I, for the life of me, couldn’t remember being there," he said.
    He’s open about the issues. There was the day in Cincinnati when he did something out of character.
    "I remember at one point my mom being down in Cincinnati, something was said that was you know, something you’d hear every day. And I just snapped. I yelled at my mom. I yelled at my wife," Ben said.
    And it was difficult to predict when those moments would happen.
    "It was a lot of ups and downs because he would feel very differently on some days, might be experiencing different symptoms on one day,” his wife Karyn said.
    But he’s rebounded in a new career. Ben has gotten serious about what used to be a passionate hobby — singing. He plans to go on a national tour this winter and release a Christmas CD.
    "For me, it’s a business that … what keeps me going is that I love it so much,” he said.

    That love is evident to others, as well.
    "It’s so much fun to see him as a musician,” his wife said. “His eyes really light up in a different way.”
    He and Karyn have settled into a new life, one that includes 2-month-old twin daughters and their 2-and-a-half-year-old big sister.
    "He never poured his entire identity into football. He was very much so focused on being a father and a husband and just providing for us in whatever way he best could,” Karyn said.
    He is driven in his music but reminded that his future is built on a foundation he used in football.
    "Our Super Bowl ring has the word ‘faith’ on it, which is the only Super Bowl ring in the history of the NFL to have any kind of spiritual symbolism,” he said.
    And that’s why he believes his future is secure, not because he or they know what tomorrow brings.
    "We’re going to choose to believe that God is in control and that something good is going to come from this,” Karyn said.
    A head injury that helped remind him of exactly who he is.
    "It was the injuries that I faced that brought some of the greatest refinement to me, as a man," Ben said.
    He will be touring nationally starting in November. You can find out more about Utecht’s music by checking out his website. "

    How the Body Works : The Regions of the Brain

    "The brain has three major functional and anatomical parts--the forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain. The forebrain consists of the cerebral hemispheres, thalami, hypothalamus and limbic system. The top inch of the brain stem is the midbrain. The hindbrain includes the cerebellum, the pons and the medulla. Other parts of the brain's anatomy include: the cerebral cortex, a thin layer of nerve cells on the surface of the cerebral hemispheres; the cerebrum, composed of many millions of nerve fibers, is covered by the cerebral cortex; the corpus callosum, a C-shaped collection of fibers, forms a bridge between the left and right hemispheres; the thalamus, which relays and receives messages to and from other areas of the brain; the limbic system, concerned with memory and emotion; the cerebellum, the largest part of the hindbrain and responsible for balance and the fine control of muscle movements; and the hypothalamus, which lies below the third ventricle of the brain, and regulates many of the body's functions and the activity of the pituitary gland"

  • Healthy Foods to Feed Your Brain ,

  • "..From berries to oysters, these 8 brain foods are proven to boost memory, help us think clearly, and contribute to overall good health. ...
    Brain Food #1: Berries
    Getting beneficial anti-oxidative compounds like vitamins C, E, beta-carotene and other nutrients through food may help prevent, or at least curtail, the damage, because they can disarm potentially cell-injuring free radicals circulating throughout the system.
    Research has shown that beneficial chemicals called ellagatannis in raspberries, strawberries and blueberries are also found right in the hippocampus, the brain's memory control center. Talk about a direct hit!...

    Brain Food #2: Cherries
    "...Cherries are nature's own little anti-inflammatory pills. They contain Cox 2 inhibitors similar to those found in pain medications such as Vioxx and Celebrex, but they also contain compounds called polyphenols that keep platelets in the blood from clumping together, so they don't produce undesirable side effects— like heart attacks and strokes—which are risks associated with the manufactured drugs. Isn't Mother Nature clever?...
    Brain Food #3: Apples
    "That old adage about "an apple a day" is right on target. Turns out that apples contain a group of chemicals that could protect the brain from the type of damage that triggers neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. One of those compounds, a flavonoid called quercetin, has been shown to protect the brain from oxidative injury in animal studies. ..
    *see Health-Movement, Neurological Disorders
    Brain Food #4: Curry
    "..It may even prove useful in treating Alzheimer's; one study showed a reduction in beta amyloid deposits, the plaques associated with the disease, in the brains of animals fed curcumin-enhanced food. In another study, elderly people who ate curry often or very often did better on tests of mental performance than those who never or rarely ate curry. ..

    Brain Food #5: Eggs
    "However, that same yolk contains one of the most important nutrients for building better brains: choline.
    Getting adequate amounts of choline, especially early in life—during fetal development and early childhood—may help us learn more readily and also help us retain what we learn. What's more, sufficient choline intake early on may give us the mental building blocks we need to help keep memory intact as we age. ..

    Brain Food #6: Sardines
    "We've all heard that fish is "brain food," and there's good reason for it. Fatty fish like budget-friendly sardines contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are thought to be instrumental in maintaining brain function from early development throughout life. DHA, an omega-3, is present right in the brain, so having those good-for-you omega-3s in your diet is thought to boost brain function.
    In addition, components of fatty acids in fish go straight to the synapses of nerve cells, so they play an important role in how neurons communicate with one another, which may have a positive affect throughout life on learning and memory. ..

    Brain Food #7: Oysters
    "..If your mind wanders or you have memory lapses here and there, you may need more of the minerals zinc and iron in your diet.

  • Mass Mind Control Through Network Television Are Your Thoughts Your Own? By Alex Ansary Outside The Box 12-29-5

  • "....Experiments conducted by researcher Herbert Krugman reveal that when a person watches television, brain activity switches from the left to the right hemisphere. The left hemisphere is the seat of logical thought. Here, information is broken down into its component parts and critically analyzed. The right brain, however, treats incoming data uncritically, processing information in wholes, leading to emotional, rather than logical responses. The shift from left to right brain activity also causes the release of endorphins, the body's own natural opiates--thus, it is possible to become physically addicted to watching television, a hypothesis borne out by numerous studies which have shown that very few people are able to kick the television habit. It's no longer an overstatement to note that the youth today that are raised and taught through network television are intellectually dead by their early teens.
    The dumbing down of humanity is represented by another shift which occurs in the brain when we watch television. Activity in the higher brain regions (such as the neo-cortex) is diminished, while activity in the lower brain regions (such as the limbic system) increases. The latter, commonly referred to as the reptile brain, is associated with more primitive mental functions, such as the "fight or flight" response. The reptile brain is unable to distinguish between reality and the simulated reality of television. To the reptile brain, if it looks real, it is real. Thus, though we know on a conscious level it is "only a film," on a conscious level we do not--the heart beats faster, for instance, while we watch a suspenseful scene. Similarly, we know the commercial is trying to manipulate us, but on an unconscious level the commercial nonetheless succeeds in, say, making us feel inadequate until we buy whatever thing is being advertised--and the effect is all the more powerful because it is unconscious, operating on the deepest level of human response. The reptile brain makes it possible for us to survive as biological beings, but it also leaves us vulnerable to the manipulations of television programmers. This is where the manipulators use our own emotions as strings to control us. The distortions and directions we are being moved to are taking place in the subconscious, often undetected.
    Propaganda techniques were first codified and applied in a scientific manner by journalist Walter Lippman and psychologist Edward Bernays (nephew of Sigmund Freud) early in the 20th century. During World War I, Lippman and Bernays were hired by then United States President, Woodrow Wilson, to participate in the Creel Commission, the mission of which was to sway popular opinion in favor of entering the war, on the side of Britain. Edward Bernays said in his 1928 book Propaganda that, "The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country." ...

  • Junior Seau's death classified as a suicide By Alan Duke and Chelsea J. Carter, CNN updated 7:36 PM EDT, Thu May 3, 2012

  • "Los Angeles (CNN) -- The San Diego County medical examiner's office Thursday classified the death of former NFL linebacker Junior Seau as a suicide, but the finding will probably do little to answer questions swirling since he was found with a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
    Toxicology results and the narrative that could reveal contributing factors in the death could take weeks or longer to complete, said Sarah Gordon of the medical examiner's office.
    Since news broke that Seau was found Wednesday in his Oceanside, California, home with a gunshot wound to the chest, there has been speculation about whether repeated hits to his head over his 20-year pro career could be a contributing factor.
    1994 Chargers team carries dark legacy
    There is no evidence Seau suffered from chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a degenerative disease brought on by multiple concussions, though friends and family have stepped forward to say the legendary linebacker suffered a number of hits to the head during his career.
    As a linebacker, he played "the most havoc-ridden position on the team. He suffered many concussions, so there is a strong sense that it played a role," said Shawn Mitchell, a pastor and Seau family friend.
    Mitchell, who stood next to Seau's grief-stricken mother as she faced a sea of cameras to discuss her son's death, said the family had received calls from researchers asking to study his brain. Wire: Seau was an inspiration in the NFL Tiki Barber on Junior Seau's death Emotional mom: God take me, leave my son
    "Him taking the shot to the chest makes sense that he would want his head examined," he said.
    The medical examiner's office, in a statement Thursday, said it was awaiting the family's decision regarding study of Seau's brain. It said a final autopsy report may take up to 90 days to complete. The autopsy confirmed Seau died

    of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.
    While Mitchell did not identify the researchers making the requests, among the institutions the family could donate Seau's brain to is Boston University's Center for the Study of Traumatic Encephalopathy, the research center that found former Chicago Bears safety Dave Duerson suffered degenerative damage to his brain because of repeated hits.
    Duerson committed suicide, shooting himself in the chest in 2011 and leaving a suicide note that said he wanted his brain studied for possible damage.
    Seau's death follows last month's suicide of former Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling, the lead plantiff in a class-action lawsuit against the NFL over concussion-related injuries. The lawsuit names over 1,000 professional players.
    In both cases, Easterling and Duerson exhibited symptoms of repetitive head trauma: memory lapses, anger and deep depression, according to family and friends. And in both cases, researchers found signs of brain trauma.
    More than 100 former professional football players added their names Thursday to the growing list of people suing the NFL, saying it "repeatedly refuted the connection between concussions and brain injury," according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Atlanta by attorney Mike McGlamry.
    The NFL has repeatedly dismissed the allegations, saying player safety is a priority. "Any allegation that the NFL intentionally sought to mislead players has no merit," it said.
    Seau does not appear to have participated in any of the pending lawsuits against the NFL.
    CNN's chief medical correspondent, Dr. Sanjay Gupta, warned against drawing a conclusion in Seau's case, though he said there were striking similarities between his death and other cases involving football players.
    The only way to determine if Seau suffered CTE is to analyze the brain tissue for "hallmarks of the dementia-like disease," Gupta said.
    "We can't know, unless Junior Seau's" brain is analyzed in this way, whether his death was related to CTE, he said.
    Though Seau had no reported documented history of concussions, Gupta said "the hits don't necessarily result in diagnosed concussion, but the brain is rattled over and over again."
    Seau family friend Joe Gallagher said the former linebacker made a comment recently that appeared to indicate a possible issue.
    "Junior had wanted to donate his brain to science to the study of concussive injuries," he told CNN affiliate KGTV of San Diego.
    Seau was drafted into the NFL in the first round in 1990 out of the University of Southern California. He debuted with the San Diego Chargers, establishing his Hall of Fame potential as a Pro Bowl staple.
    He left San Diego before the 2003 season to join the Miami Dolphins and spent parts of the last four seasons with the New England Patriots before retiring in late 2011. Seau amassed 1,526 tackles, 56.5 sacks and 18 interceptions in his 20-season career.
    Seau's death rocked the Southern California city of San Diego, where he was a member of the 1994 Chargers -- the team's only Super Bowl appearance.
    His reputation as a fierce tackler -- with a heart of gold for his community work -- earned him admiration and a legion of fans.
    Through most of his career he avoided negative publicity that plagued some in the NFL.
    But in October 2010, he made headlines when he was charged with domestic violence after an incident with his girlfriend, and then hours after his arrest he drove off a cliff and crashed on the beach. Investigators later ruled the crash an accident, saying he fell asleep at the wheel.
    On Wednesday, Seau made headlines again. His girlfriend, who had just returned home from a workout, found him in the bedroom of his home with a gun lying next to him, authorities said.
    It is not clear if Seau left a note or an explanation. Funeral arrangements are pending.
    In the hours before his death, Mitchell said he sent text messages to his ex-wife and their three children.
    "They said simply, 'I love you," Mitchell told CNN. "They actually responded back to him with 'Love you too, Dad.'"

  • Super Bowl-winning quarterback Jim McMahon says he wishes he had played baseball .By Maggie Hendricks | Shutdown Corner – 2 hours 51 minutes ago

  • "In my family, the members of the 1985 Super Bowl-winning Chicago Bears team ranked just slightly behind the Father, Son and the Holy Ghost. In fact, as a 6-year-old I was taught the "Super Bowl Shuffle" by a Franciscan nun, so that ranking could be muddled at times. Walter Payton was at the top of the list, but I couldn't help but be crazy about the rebellious, mouthy, "Punky QB known as McMahon."
    The way he would play football made me misunderstand the quarterback's role as a child. Aren't all quarterbacks supposed to jump over the top of the pile? Don't they all take punishing hits then pop back up for more? Why would a quarterback slide for a first down when he could get an extra half-yard by taking the big hit?
    During his career with the Bears, Philadelphia Eagles and other teams, McMahon never started a full season. His tough and sometimes reckless style of play meant he suffered many, many injuries. Now, 16 years after he retired, he is experiencing an injury that can't be fixed by a surgery or therapy.
    At 53, McMahon is in the early stages of dementia. He is part of the group suing the NFL that says they hid the effects of concussions. Though his career resulted in a Super Bowl ring and a Pro Bowl appearance, he still says he would have played baseball if he knew what concussions would do to him.
    "Being injured, if you don't play, you don't get paid. If I was able to walk out on that field, I was gonna play," he said in an interview with Chicago's WFLD-TV at his Arizona home. "Had I known about that stuff early on in my career, I probably would have chosen a different career. I always wanted to be a baseball player anyway."
    McMahon played football while at Brigham Young University, but said he would have stuck with baseball had he received a scholarship for that sport.
    He is a group of more than 2,000 players who need help from the NFL after concussions have filled their retirement with dementia, memory loss, and in some cases, a bitter end. McMahon's teammate, Dave Duerson, committed suicide and asked for his brain to be studied. He was found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the same disease found in other players who have died under tragic circumstances.
    The NFL has made strides in improving how concussions and head injuries are treated. Though problems still exist, like Colt McCoy being sent back in the game last season when he was not healthy, the culture around head traumas is changing.
    But the retired players who sacrificed their bodies to create the exciting game we all know and love today should not be forgotten. When one of them says he wishes he didn't even play the game that won him fame, it's a cry for help that should not go unheeded. "


  • Brain Injury Survivor Finds his Angel and "More God" By Jeremy Reynalds Senior Correspondent for ASSIST News Service

  • "CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS (ANS) -- When Nate Lytle faced a life-or-death struggle after suffering a traumatic brain injury, he touched people's lives without even knowing it.
    On June 3 2007, right after competing in his first surfing contest, Lytle said on his web site that surfing may have become a distraction in hearing from God. As he drove home that night, Lytle made a commitment to God that he wouldn’t surf for a whole year.
    The next day, his web site said, Lytle fell from the top of a ten foot ladder, shattering his skull and leaving him with a severe brain injury. He was not expected to live, and even if he did survive, the doctors said he would never walk, talk, or communicate again. As word spread about Lytle’s condition while in a coma, his surfing buddies urged one another on with the phrase “Pray for Nate.”
    According to a news release, after waking from his coma to a supportive group of family and friends, he made it his goal to inspire and help others get the most out of life, even in the bleakest of moments.
    From his surfing friends urging his recovery through online forums to his church members and nurses passing along prayers in the hallways, Lytle's struggle became a inspiration to everyone he met.
    The news release said he especially inspired the woman who would become his wife, Brianna, who from the moment she heard about Lytle's condition felt a strong connection to him.
    Brianna said in the news release, “I was so excited when I heard he had awakened from his coma. My first thought was that I had to meet him; I had to be able to tell him how he had touched my life. Mind you, this was all so strange to me, knowing that here he was, someone my age, fighting for his life, facing probably the hardest thing he will ever have to go through. On top of that I was his nurse for a short while, and he brought up all these emotions in me and motivated me to want to really find Jesus."
    “Mom, I think she was an a-a-a-a-angel. My a-a-a-angel,” Lytle said in the news release, still struggling with his speech. Although he couldn't remember her name or where she had come from, he knew he had seen someone in his dream-like state with “dark hair, bright eyes, pretty teeth and a warm spirit."
    After he was released, the news release reported, the two were formally introduced at his benefit party. There was an instant connection. Brianna continued to care for Lytle as he recovered, becoming more involved in his life. Lytle not only found a new appreciation for life and his relationship with God, but also someone special with whom he could share his thoughts.
    Lytle’s book “More God: Seeing the Blessings Through the Pain” tells the incredible story of one man's physical, emotional and spiritual journey through his near-death experience. Lytle's insight provides survivors and families with the motivation and encouragement to live life to the fullest. Drawing from his positive view on life and relationship with God, he shows that good can come from the worst situations.
    After spending four years in the U.S. Coast Guard and 13 years in the ministry, Lytle's battle with a traumatic brain injury steered him onto a new path. Reaching out to people as a motivational and inspirational speaker, Lytle continues to share his story with those around him.
    According to the news release, he helps with many surf camps for the disabled, works with local ministry projects, leads support groups at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital, and brings encouragement to those struggling with hardships of their own.
    Named “Survivor of the Year” by the Brain Injury Association Texas Chapter in 2011, Lytle now lives with his wife, Brianna, in Corpus Christi, Texas.

    "Uploaded by CraigBrockie on Jul 8, 2008
    Is your cell phone harming you? What exactly are the health risks from using cellular phones? Watch this video to learn about several research studies that provide evidence linking electromagnetic (EMF) radiation from cell phones with brain damage, cancer, infertility, anxiety, depression and more.
    Dr. George Carlo, a former head of research representing the cell phone industry - turned whistleblower refers the industry's studies and "scientific fraud" and warns people, especially parents of children with cell phones, of the health risks.
    Detection of radiation from cellphones can be done by testing for harmful field pollution with an EMF detector. You can even measure the strength of EMF's with an EMF meter or tester. ELF meters and detectors may also be used in finding harmful ELF's.
    Signs of overexposure to harmful electromagnetic fields can be headaches, dizziness, confusion, heat, fatigue, and many more serious symptoms of disease. Radiation therapy is damaging to cancer cells and it appears cell phones may also cause the cells of your body harm.
    There are many EMF shielding devices on the market today designed to balance, neutralize and shield EMFs for your protection and to help you maintain your health: Biopro cell tabs, Q-Link pendants, SafeSpace,, Q-ray bracelets, Qlink jewelry, Bio Pro products, other technologies from Qlinks, cell phone chips, energetic balancing, and technology from Cory Herter and Wish for Love / Sacred G.
    Balancing your energy with a pendant, chip, or other protective EMF safety product is definitely something to consider to maximize a person's wellbeing.
    We are constantly bombarded by microwaves, radio waves, satellite transmissions, power lines, 60 Hz wiring and lighting, televisions, iPods, digital alarm clocks, dimmer switches, camera phones, blackberry smart phones, wireless internet, WAP, Wi-Fi, and who knows what else.
    Testimonials from people who are sick with autoimmune disorders, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia indicate they are often more sensitive to electricity and harmful EMF pollution. If you get red, sore eyes from working in front of a computer monitor or on your laptop, then you might benefit from one of many EMF shielding accessories.
    Dr. Andrew Weil, Kevin Trudeau and doctors Becker, Gerber, DeVita and many other health experts warn about the safety of energetically disruptive technologies.
    FreeShield technology fits simply in behind your cell phone battery cover and helps neutralize and harmonize harmful EMF radiation. MTV's hit TV show "Rob and Big" featured this technology. Rob Dyrdek nicknamed it SacredG, which stands for sacred geometry.
    We're told there is an energy crisis. We hear about it on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNBC, BBC, CNN and all over tv. We also read about it in magazines and newspapers. However, perhaps there is another energy crisis to be consider- that of electromagnetic pollution. "

    "..Cell phones Cell towers Brain Tumors? Blood Brain Barrier Leakage... To learn more go to "Scientists from Colorado University have shown that frequent mobile users had significantly depressed melatonin - a vital cancer-preventing hormone. An Australian study has linked the phones to a higher rate of brain cancer while a Swedish survey suggested that using a mobile phone for more than 15 minutes could lead to headaches and fatigue."22 The most difficult area of research is the complexity of interactions that are possible. Nevertheless a great deal can be gained by looking at the very specific sources of EMFs in determining both their effects and ways to limit human exposure. "It is difficult to deny that RFR at low intensity can affect the nervous system...
    CIA Project Pandora Radio Remote Brain Manipulation 911InvestigationVids

    "HDTV will be the method. Dr Ross Adey's research at the Brain Research Institute of the University of California, was funded by the CIA. In their Pandora project a catalogue of different brain signals for specific actions, emotions and pathological states of mind were recorded. It was found that when microwaves were used to fire these signals at victims' brains, they experienced the moods, behaviour, and the pathological states, carried by the signals. This meant that by mimicking natural brain frequencies, the human brain could be controlled remotely by use of extremely low frequency broadcast carried by pulse modulated microwave beams (ELF pulse modulated microwave remote mind control technology).

    The TETRA system pulses at 17.6 Hz broadcast at 400 MHz which is essentially the Pandora Project funded by the CIA in the late '60s and early '70s. Dr Ross Adey, the chief researcher on the Pandora Project has released a video to leading UK researchers which proves that not only does the TETRA system cause ELF zombification by massive release of calcium ions in the cerebral cortex and the nervous system, but the activated calcium ions also cause massive hormonal disturbances which lead to frenzied imbalances, emotional and physical states...... Use of the TETRA system by the police will lead to psychotronicaly controlled officers who may be totally controlled in any situation and are very useful for states of economic or social chaos where extreme and violent behaviour is needed without any conscious or moral compunction - so-called police robots.

    In quoting this research I refer to documents listed under Reference 15. So sophisticated is this research, and I refer to Operation Pandora Joint CIA/MI6 Operation since the 1960s, Operation Woodpecker USSR 1976, Operation HAARP still running in USA; they are able to define specific pulse frequencies to cause specific brain malfunctions or illnesses. For instance: 4.5: Illness Caused, 6.6: Depression/Suicide, 11: Manic behaviour/Anger, 25:Blindness if aimed at the head/Heart attack if aimed at the chest. Other consequences of frequencies used but not listed here are hysteria, trauma, lust, murder and cancer, and may all be induced.

    It was inevitable that military/intelligence interests would develop electronic RMCT weapons systems. These weapons fall into a number of classes, the simplest being the use of microwaves at low amplitudes, e.g., 10,000 microwatts per square centimetre, to cause local hot-spots in the victim's body areas that have poor circulation, such as the eyes and gall bladder. The microwaves heat up the tissue, which does not have the blood circulation to carry away the excess heat. The victim feels nothing, but sustains acute and chronic illness in these areas. Intelligence organisations in the West use this technology to disable permanently the 'subversive elements' they cannot scare off.
    When ELF-modulated microwaves are used, they are keyed to distinctive patterns of brainwaves called preparation sets, which exist for every mechanical gesture the body makes. There are also specific excitation potentials which exist for specific emotional states. Intelligence operatives can induce remote conditioning by creating information-processing effects which can cause excitatory reactions, subliminal stress, behavioural arousal, enhanced suggestibility by inhibition of higher functions, and patterned behaviours. It is alleged that this technology is used by the CIA and MI5 to modify the behaviour of 'high-profile subversives'.
    The more advanced electronic RMCT utilises ELF-modulated masers for long-range, penetrative, invasive EM mind-control. Together with Doppler-shifted interrogative RMCT masers, a victim's brain-states can be analysed at a distance-and the 'subversive' can be modified at a distance. Developments on this technique, and the use of low-frequency EM radiation to see through walls, have allowed intelligence agencies in the US to make useful inroads on the path to synthetic telepathy.
    Much of this research has been funded by the CIA which began this work on electronic mind-control with its Pandora project. This research was used to build devices like RHIC-EDOM (Radio Hypnotic Intracerebral Control - Electronic Dissolution of Memory), which is allegedly used for forced induction of hypnotic trance in the abduction of and experimentation upon civilians by US Government agencies."
