Nanotechnology News – February 2020


Cultocracy Introduction :

Perfect timing .

I wonder what specific areas of Charles Lieber’s research were of interest to the Chinese administration ?

Remote neural entrainment and manipulation can be enhanced with this particular type of nanotechnology , although it is not a necessity .

The fact that the technology has been in the public domain for a while now suggests that it has now been superseded .

Maybe Elon Musk should be arrested as well ?

Although Musk is simply a salesman , recycling deep state tech for the civilian market is a natural progression .

Apparently Charles Lieber has been charged with ‘making materially false, fictitious and fraudulent statements to an agency of the US government’ .

A charge better known as ‘lying’ .

I always thought that ‘lying’ was a prerequisite for all government agency employees and their subordinates ?

Pots calling the pan….

It does make you wonder who they are all actually working for .

Besides themselves of course .


Harvard Chemist Stitched up Arrested

Charles Lieber, one the world’s top nanotechnology experts and the chairman of Harvard University’s chemistry department, was arrested Tuesday morning and charged with lying about payments he’d taken from the Thousand Talents Program, a Chinese effort to lure top research minds.”

“The charges against the chemist, announced by the US Department of Justice, are part of a wide-ranging effort by the US to crack down on what it calls rampant intellectual-property theft by China.”

“According to a charging document written by an FBI agent, Lieber received more than $15 million in US grant funding from the National Institutes of Health and the Department of Defense, among other sources.”

“Researchers are supposed to disclose if they also have foreign funding. But Lieber didn’t do so and then, when confronted, gave “false, fictitious, and fraudulent statements”

“According to the charging document, Lieber, starting in 2011, agreed to help set up a research lab at the Wuhan University of Technology and “make strategic visionary and creative research proposals” so that China could do cutting-edge science.”

“He was well paid for it. Lieber earned a salary when he visited China worth up to $50,000 per month, as well as $150,000 a year in expenses in addition to research funds. “

Lieber was ranked the most cited chemist in the world between 2000 and 2010 and came up with the concept of “neural lace.”

The metallic mesh, which can be injected into the brain, was an inspiration for Elon Musk’s brain-machine interface company, Neuralink.

Dual use research is common in scientific circles , many unwitting researchers are in the dark about the primary motives for their work .

The rest are simply insane .


 

Digging a Deeper Hole

“Scientists at The University of Texas at Austin have harnessed specially engineered symbiotic honey bee gut bacteria to protect the insects from Varroa mites and deformed wing virus, two key honey bee pathogens that represent major causes of colony collapse.”

“The engineered bacteria live as part of the the honeybee gut microbiome, and effectively act as biological factories that produce double stranded RNA (dsRNA) to alter gene expression and trigger immune responses.”

“Researchers could also use the technology as a tool for studying bee genetics. The engineered bacteria can knock down specific bee genes, giving scientists new insights into the bee genome function, and possibly enabling new breeding strategies to produce more robust bee colonies. “

Quantum Computing & Communications

Noisy Neighbours

“A new approach developed by researchers at MIT could provide a significant step forward in quantum error correction.”

“The main issues we now face in developing quantum technologies are that current systems are small and noisy……”

“…….unwanted disturbance of any kind, is especially vexing because many quantum systems are inherently highly sensitive……”

“The quantum system they’re working with consists of carbon nuclei near a particular kind of defect in a diamond crystal called a nitrogen vacancy center. These defects behave like single, isolated electrons, and their presence enables the control of the nearby carbon nuclei.”

“But the team found that the overwhelming majority of the noise affecting these nuclei came from one single source: random fluctuations in the nearby defects themselves.”

“This noise source can be accurately modeled, and suppressing its effects could have a major impact, as other sources of noise are relatively insignificant.”

“If it works as expected, this could make up an important component of future quantum-based technologies including quantum computers , quantum communications systems or highly sensitive sensor systems.”

“The research was supported by the U.S. Army Research Office and the National Science Foundation.”

 

White Graphene

“In a future built on quantum technologies, planes and spaceships could be fueled by the momentum of light. Quantum computers will crunch through complex problems spanning chemistry to cryptography…..”

“But before this future can come to pass, we need bright, on-demand, predictable sources of quantum light. “

“Toward this end, a team of Stanford University in collaboration with labs at Harvard University and the University of Technology Sydney, have been investigating hexagonal boron nitride……”

“Unfortunately, hexagonal boron nitride has a significant downside: It emits light in a rainbow of different hues. “

“By employing a combination of microscopic methods, the scientists were able to trace the material’s colorful emission to specific atomic defects.”

“We needed to know how these defects couple to the environment and if that could be used as a fingerprint to identify and control them…..”

“…..the team envisions strategic placement of quantum emitters, as well as turning their emission on and off for future quantum computers.”

Artificial Intelligence – AI

Sharpen the Pitchforks

According to the paper, past examples of new technology suggest it will take longer than companies predict for workplaces to become fully transformed by AI, and some jobs might not be as easily replaceable as economists believe. This means researchers have more time to gain a deeper understanding of how workplace automation will affect society, in order to have more say in how it unfolds.”

Maybe the reasons our neighborhoods work well is that so many of us are away from them during the day. We might have to rethink all of these things — and that’s what the paper argues we should do…”

“Researchers and policymakers also need to weigh the societal benefits of work, in order to make informed decisions about which jobs are worth saving.”

“We might decide, ‘Maybe AI can do this better than a person, but we don’t care, because we get some value out of it.”

Several copies of this particular paper where handed to the board of several large industrial corporations .

Where they were promptly shredded .

Ethical Murder , Global Racketeering and Destruction

The US Department of Defense (DoD) has formally adopted a set of principles to use artificial intelligence (AI) for military use .”

“In October 2019, the recommendations for use of the technology were provided to Secretary of Defense Dr. Mark T. Esper by the Defense Innovation Board. These recommendations came after 15 months of consultation with leading AI specialists in several industries like the government, academia, commercial, and the public. “

“The move aligns with the DoD’s AI strategy objective directing the country’s military lead in AI ethics and the legal use of AI systems. “

“As the existing framework delivers technology-neutral and enduring foundation for ethical behaviour, the use of AI increases new ethical uncertainties and risks. This is where the new principles will play their role by addressing the new challenges.”

“According to a UK government report issued earlier this month, the government was ‘failing on openness’ with regards to its AI usage, although a specific regulator was not proposed as the answer. “

“The report added that fears over ‘black box AI’, whereby data produces results through unexplainable methods, were largely misplaced.”


Hmmmm……..

It almost sounds like there are those in power who are concerned about the current misuse of AI…….

Or at least the possible potential financial price of misuse……

I wonder why ?


 

Ethical AI – UK

“The UK does not need a specific regulator for artificial intelligence (AI), according to a new government report – yet more clarity needs to be given around usage and ethics in the public sector.”

Public sector organisations are not sufficiently transparent about their use of AI and it is too difficult to find out where machine learning is currently being used in government…..”

It is too early to judge if public sector bodies are successfully upholding accountability.”

“As with any technology that relies on data, garbage in means garbage out. From facial recognition in policing to helping diagnose and treat patients on the NHS….”


UK government “failing on openness”  – Guilty

UK government “Successfully upholding accountability” – Not guilty

Same as it’s ever been .


 

Shock , Horror……..UK Met Commissioner is Establishment Stooge

“The chief commissioner of the Metropolitan Police has dismissed critics of law enforcement using facial recognition systems.”

Met Commissioner Cressida Dick was speaking at the Royal United Services Institute think tank on Monday. Much of Dick’s speech was spent on making the case for British police to use modern technologies to tackle crime.”

Dick accused critics of police facial recognition technology as being “highly inaccurate or highly ill-informed.” “

“Needless to say, this angered said critics who believe Dick is the one who is ill-informed…”

Dick says she welcomes a public debate about facial recognition but attacked organisations such as Big Brother Watch and Liberty who brought the attention to the wider public.

Big Brother Watch tweeted. “Dick would do better to acknowledge and engage with the real, serious concerns….”

Met Police tests of facial recognition technology so far have been nothing short of a complete failure.

“…..police should not be allowed to use tech lawfully and proportionally to catch criminal……Dick argued.”

“An initial trial, at the 2016 Notting Hill Carnival, led to not a single person being identified. A follow-up trial the following year led to no legitimate matches but 35 false positives.”

“Needless to say, this angered said critics who believe Dick is the one who is ill-informed by ignoring an independent report which suggests the technology in question only works in just 19 percent of cases.”

“This report raises significant concerns regarding the human rights law compliance of the trials.”

5G & IoT

Smart Phones make you Dumb

“As smart phones have become a pervasive part of daily life over the last decade or so, they’ve changed the way people socialize and communicate. They’re always around and always within reach, or nearly always.”

“So what happens to people’s brains and bodies when their phones are out of reach, or within reach but not usable?”

“Markowitz and colleagues found that participants without their phones had more difficulty concentrating and more mind wandering compared to those who used their phone. And those who had to resist using their phone had greater perceived concentration abilities than those who sat without their phone.”

“At least having it front of you was psychologically better than not having it all…”

“Markowitz said his study also fits in a framework of trying to understand if technology, or media in general, are mirrors or modifiers of human behavior.

 

5G to the Rescue

“Today, Huawei announced their support for Hubei Mobile and Hubei Unicom to launch 5G base stations in the Wuhan Vulcan Mountain Hospital. As you’ve probably heard by now, the Wuhan Vulcan Mountain Hospital is the building China is trying to build as quickly as possible to fight against the Coronavirus epidemic.

“At present, the three major operators in Hubei have already established and opened a 5G network near the hospital. 5G will help the Vulcan Mountain Hospital achieve ultra-high-speed network connectivity. Ensuring high-speed data access, data collection, remote consultation, remote monitoring and other services.

 

 


 

 

Implants


Cultocracy note :

Window dressing alert…..

Yaaawwwn…..


Shine a Light

Implants that can probe the brain at the individual neuron level are not widely available to researchers.

“Researchers at the University of Arizona, George Washington University and Northwestern University have created an ultra-small, wireless, battery-free device that uses light to record individual neurons so neuroscientists can see how the brain is working.

“The process first involves tinting select neurons with a dye that changes in brightness depending on activity. Then, the device shines a light on the dye, making the neurons’ biochemical processes visible. “

“The device captures the changes using a probe only slightly wider than a human hair, then processes a direct readout of the neuron’s activity and transmits the information wirelessly to researchers.”

“The device can be tiny, and even flexible like a sheet of paper, because it does not need a battery. It harvests energy from external oscillating magnetic fields gathered by a miniature antenna on the device.

“We hope that the technology can make a difference in fighting neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s and cast light on the biological mechanisms, such as pain, addiction and depression.

 

 

Ion Channel Stimulation

“In this paper, a chip-scale device consisting of piezoelectric Aluminum Nitride ultrasonic transducers was engineered to deliver gigahertz (GHz) ultrasonic stimulus to the human neural cells.”

“………an ultrasonic transducer integrated with and controlled by CMOS (Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) electronics can implement closed loop systems that can feedback regulate delivered ultrasonic power, and also communicate to the external electronics through RF or ultrasonic communication links. “

“This paper reports on the direct mechanical effects of GHz ultrasonic stimulation on ion channels, negating possible electrical or thermal effects.”

“This study opens the door to many new possibilities for engineering, treating, and understanding neural tissue.

 

 


 

 

Brain Computer Interface – BCI

Internet Mind Meld

Brain functions are made possible by circuits of spiking neurons…….”

“In this new study, published in the scientific journal Nature Scientific Reports, the scientists created a hybrid neural network where biological and artificial neurons in different parts of the world were able to communicate with each other over the internet……..”

“During the study, researchers cultivated rat neurons in their laboratory, whilst partners created artificial neurons on Silicon microchips. The virtual laboratory was brought together via an elaborate setup controlling nanoelectronic synapses .”

These synaptic devices are known as memristors.”

“We are very excited with this new development. On one side it sets the basis for a novel scenario that was never encountered during natural evolution, where biological and artificial neurons are linked together and communicate across global networks….”

“On the other hand, it brings new prospects to neuroprosthetic technologies, paving the way towards research into replacing dysfunctional parts of the brain with AI chips.

Human Machine Interface – HMI

 

The Human Touch

“In this week’s issue of Applied Physics Reviews scientists report the development of a new tactile-enhancement system based on a highly sensitive sensor.”

“The crack-based sensor used in this device was inspired by a spider’s slit organ…”

This pattern of cracks in the exoskeleton allows the spider to detect small movements. In the same way, the ultrathin crack-based strain sensor, or UCSS, uses cracks formed in a thin layer of electrically conductive silver.

“They attached UCSSs to gloves, either on the fingertips or on the back of the hand, producing a type of electronic skin, or e-skin. Tiny movements, as small as a person’s pulse moving the tip of a finger, could be monitored. “

“These results demonstrate the wide applications of our ultrathin strain sensor in e-skin and human-machine interfaces.”

 

 


 

 

Remote Sensing & Stimulation


Cultocracy note :

Another month , another mad mouse terror attack , just like clockwork .

A man called Tobias Rathjen seemingly went postal and shot up a shisha cafe in Germany on the 20th of February .

The usual narrative hit the ground running with terms such as ‘lone nut’ , ‘conspiracy theorist‘ , ‘islamic terrorist‘ , ‘racist’ and ‘genocide’ .

Buzzwords which were splashed over the related articles in an otherwise eerily subdued press .

Just for good measure , a brand spanking new website also attributed to Tobias Rathjen apparently contained comments on ‘aliens’ and ‘underground bases’ .

For even gooder (sic) measure , many MSM reports also stated that Tobias Rathjen was a ‘Trump supporter’ .

A threadbare narrative to the informed , which is now starting to sound like a ‘conspiracy theory’ in itself .

The general consensus from the mainstream media , particularly the comment sections , was that Tobias Rathjen was a mentally ill schizophrenic .

Less well publicized is the fact that Tobias Rathjen had contacted the authorities in Germany months before the shooting complaining that he was under ‘surveillance’ .

In the letter , Tobias Rathjen asked prosecutors to ‘approach me and communicate with me‘ .

Something , you would think , should have caused the alarm bells to ring out .

Although certain MSM sources make a specific point of refuting the possibility that Tobias Rathjen was on any German authority watch list at all .

Unusual , especially when you realize that by now most state authorities must realize that manufactured terror is real , this is discounting the possibility that internal state factions have themselves been compromised .

Even less well publicized is why the authorities did not investigate the approach by Rathjen , particularly interesting when you consider that Rathjen owned licensed firearms .

A rambling manifesto attributed to Tobias Rathjen suggests that he was deliberately targeted and that he knew he was being targeted .

The question is by whom and what is the agenda ?

Perhaps an answer to this question can be found by the response to the attack by the German authorities who stated that they were looking for ‘other suspects’ .

Good luck with that one .

You can read a copy of the manifesto at the link below .

Artificial Brains

“Despite billions of dollars spent and decades of research, computation in the human brain remains largely a mystery. Meanwhile, we have made great strides in the development of artificial neural networks, which are designed to loosely mimic how brains compute.”

“In a paper published in Nature Neuroscience, my co-authors and I argue that the lessons we have learned from artificial neural networks can guide us down the right path of understanding the brain as a computational system rather than as a collection of indecipherable cells.”

“Given the ability of modern artificial neural networks to solve complex problems, a framework for systems neuroscience guided by machine learning insights may unlock valuable secrets about the human brain.”

 

Big Brain – Big Data

“A big data approach to neuroscience promises to significantly improve our understanding of the relationship between brain activity and performance.”

“To date, there have been relatively few attempts to use a big-data approach within the emerging field of neurotechnology.”

“The Army in particular is interested in how the cognitive state of Soldiers can affect their performance during a mission. If you can understand the brain, you can predict and even enhance cognitive performance.”

“Researchers from the U.S. Army Combat Capabilities Development Command’s Army Research Laboratory teamed with the University of Texas at San Antonio and Intheon Labs to develop a first-of-its-kind mega-analysis of brain imaging data–in this case electroencephalography, or EEG.”

“The vast majority of human neuroscientific studies use a very small number of participants employed in very specific tasks……”

Mega-analysis seeks to address this by aggregating large, heterogeneous datasets to identify universal features that link neural activity, cognitive state and task performance.”

Next-generation neurotechnologies will require a thorough understanding of this relationship in order to mitigate deficits or augment performance…”

Hmmmm……

I wonder if there is a dark and sinister system already in place which can leverage unwitting human targets into a massive mega-analysis which could be used to develop next generation neurotechnologies ?

“This is a baby step toward developing neuromorphic computers, which are computer processors that can simultaneously process and memorize information….”

“To test their device’s ability to see objects through neuromorphic computing, the researchers used it in facial recognition experiments…..”

Computer Generated Life

“All organisms on our planet store the molecular blueprint of life in a DNA code within their genome. “

“The digital revolution in biology, driven by DNA sequencing, enables us to read the genomes of the myriads of microbes and multi-cellular organisms that populate our world.”

“Using this incredible treasure trove of molecular building blocks, bio-engineers learn to read (sequence) and write (using chemical synthesis) long DNA molecules and to breed useful microbes with the help of computers.”

“In his research, Beat Christen, Professor of Experimental Systems Biology and researchers in the Christen Lab, ETH Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland use a digital genome design algorithm in conjunction with large-scale chemical DNA synthesis to physically produce artificial genomes and understand the code of life at the molecular level.

“The research team has physically produced Caulobacter ethensis-2.0, the world’s first fully computer-generated genome.”

“During the AAAS 2020 session, “Synthetic Biology: Digital Design of Living Systems” Christen will discuss possible future applications of synthetic genomes for industrial purposes and health benefits.”

“He will also talk about the need for profound discussions in society about the challenges and purposes for which this technology can be used and, at the same time, about how potential for abuse can be prevented.

Atom Scale Materials

“Every age in the history of human civilisation has a signature material, from the Stone Age, to the Bronze and Iron Ages. We might even call today’s information-driven society the Silicon Age. “

“So if we are about to exhaust the potential of silicon nanomaterials, what will be our next signature material? That’s where “atomaterials” come in. “

“Atomaterials” is short for “atomic materials”, so called because their properties depend on the precise configuration of their atoms. It is a new but rapidly developing field. “

“Using lasers, we can fashion these atomic structures into miniaturised devices with exceptional performance. “

 

DNA Transistors

“A material shaped like a one-dimensional DNA helix might further push the limits on a transistor’s size. The material comes from a rare earth element called tellurium. “

“Over the past few years, transistors have been built as small as a few nanometers in lab settings. The goal is to build transistors the size of atoms.

“Silicon atoms look straight, but these tellurium atoms are like a snake. This is a very original kind of structure…..”

“The wiggles were the atoms strongly bonding to each other in pairs to form DNA-like helical chains……..”

Amazing how many scientists are researching technologies that are in some way or another connected to the human brain .


Graphene Amplifier

“Researchers have created a unique device which will unlock the elusive terahertz wavelengths and make revolutionary new technologies possible. “

Terahertz waves (THz) sit between microwaves and infrared in the light frequency spectrum, but due to their low energy, scientists have been unable to harness their potential. The conundrum is known in scientific circles as the “terahertz gap.”

“A team of physicists has created a new type of optical transistor—a working THz amplifierusing graphene and a high-temperature superconductor.”

“One major application would be as a safe, non-destructive alternative to X-rays.”

“He added that such a device would vastly improve current technology and allow scientists to reveal more about the human brain.”

“The universe is full of terahertz radiation and signals, in fact, all biological organisms both absorb and emit it.”

“I expect that with such an amplifier available, we will be able to discover many mysteries of nature, for example, how chemical reactions and biological processes are going on, or how our brain operates and how we think.”

“We have known for a long time that naval sonar has devastating effects on marine life but just exactly how it leads to sickness and death was a mystery till now.”

“In new research published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society B, they discovered that the sound emitted by sonar is so intense that marine mammals will swim hundreds of miles, dive deep into the abyss or even beach themselves to flee from the sounds that are literally unbearable to them. “

“The stress response, in other words, overrides the diving response, which makes the animals accumulate nitrogen.”

“It’s like an adrenalin shot.”

Poisoned Forever and Ever

“Summary: Exposure to perfluorooctane sulfonate and perfluorooctanoic acid, so-called “forever chemicals,” results in a decline of both dopamine levels and dopamine neurons in roundworms.”

“The human-made chemicals that make our kitchen pans stick-free, our athletic wear water-repellent and firefighting chemicals more efficient do their jobs incredibly well, but it’s at the expense of lingering in the body and environment for what is believed to be forever.”

“Even if production completely stopped, the world will still live with them forever.”

“These chemicals are detectable in the blood of almost every human. They are often found in other species, as well, including polar bear and whale brains….”

“The carbon-fluorine bond is one of the strongest in nature, and it is difficult to break down….”

“These forever chemicals are something that Cannon refers to as a major public health issue as adverse health effects have been shown to affect hormones and other aspects of the endocrine system.”

“And which regions they accumulate within the brain is unknown….”

“This study found that PFOS exposure led to selective decreases of dopamine levels in Northern leopard frogs, a sentinel species.”

Northern leopard frog larvae were used for testing because their brains feature certain chemical bio features that are more similar to those in humans…….”

“The laboratory was caught manipulating GLP toxicity studies by replacing dead animals with living ones, changing tumour findings to “inflammations”, and generally distorting the data to please its clients.”

“It is highly concerning that GLP studies are still considered the golden scientific standard by regulatory authorities who seem to believe that cheating under GLP is impossible.”

The laboratory (LPT) is currently facing criminal charges…..”

“For years, European Member States, EFSA and the Commission have been defending the belief that an industry-funded GLP study is more reliable than a non-industry, non-GLP study.”

“The size of glass used for serving wine can influence the amount of wine drunk, suggests new research from the University of Cambridge, funded by the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR).”

“Alcohol is the fifth largest contributor to early death in high income countries and the seventh world-wide.”

“One proposed way of reducing the amount of alcohol consumed is to reduce the size of wine glasses, though until now the evidence supporting such a move has been inconclusive and often contradictory.”

Conclusions :

“The volume of wine sold in restaurants in England may be greater when 370‐ml glasses are used compared with 300‐ml wine glasses, but may not be in bars.”

“This might be related to restaurants compared with bars selling more wine in bottles and carafes, which require free‐pouring.”

Scouts and Sodomy

Boy Scouts of America files for bankruptcy amid hundreds of sexual abuse lawsuits

“Scoutmasters and other leaders accused of molesting several thousand men in cases stretching back more than 70 years”


Cultocracy note :

The US Scouting movement took a particular turn for the worse when it followed the path of ‘orders and ceromonies‘ .

A familiar pattern amongst many organizations .

A few quotes from Scouts founder Robert Baden-Powell , English establishment member and ex-public school boy :

  1. “Boys can see adventure in a dirty old duck puddle, and if the Scoutmaster is a boys’ man he can see it too.”
  2. “The real way to gain happiness is to give it to others.”
  3. “A fisherman does not bait his hook with food he likes. He uses food the fish likes. So with boys.”
  4. “Scoutmasters need to enter into boys…”

Oh , sorry , I appear to have omitted the word ‘ambitions’ at the end of the last quote .

It appears that they were all ‘a boys man’ .

As usual , the keyword is control .

Introduction

 


Cultocracy note :

The neural revolution is already here .

There is now a race to bastardize , commercialize and commoditize humanity itself .

It is the only thing that is left .


The Neural Revolution Is Here

So far, EEG scanners and implants have very limited functionality, but this technology is developing rapidly. Based on the results of a brain activity scan, it is already possible to recognize basic emotions, some unspoken words, and mental attempts to make physical movements. Scientists have found similarities in how different people’s brains process information. It is now possible to make assumptions about a person’s thoughts based on his or her brain’s neural activity.”

Experts say that for now, there are almost no legal obstacles to prevent companies from trading neural profiles.”

“It is already clear that such technologies will be used not only in the advertising industry. In a recent interview, Edward Snowden explained that technology giants are tools in the hands of even more powerful players: “We see how authoritarianism is growing all over the world, and the reality is that all of them are parts of the same threat. These companies function as weapons in the hands of governments. It’s too easy to say that tech giants are a real threat; in reality, all of them are part of the same threat — the system.” “

“The future we are striving for is a world in which our neural data, which we do not even have access to, can be used against us. For now, our thoughts are the last frontier of the defense in the war for privacy. It is sad, but all previous battles have been unconditionally lost.”

America’s most widely consumed oil causes genetic changes in the brain

“New UC Riverside research shows soybean oil not only leads to obesity and diabetes, but could also affect neurological conditions like autism, Alzheimer’s disease, anxiety, and depression. “

“Used for fast food frying, added to packaged foods, and fed to livestock, soybean oil is by far the most widely produced and consumed edible oil in the U.S.

“The team determined a number of genes in mice fed soybean oil were not functioning correctly. One such gene produces the “love” hormone, oxytocin. In soybean oil-fed mice, levels of oxytocin in the hypothalamus went down.

“If there’s one message I want people to take away, it’s this: reduce consumption of soybean oil….

Epigenetic memories can be passed down through each generation .

Does DNA also hold fragments of episodic memory ?

If so , can episodic memories also be passed down through each generation ?

Logic also dictates that if this is true then there may be a mechanism which could unlock episodic memories stored within DNA .

Perhaps episodic memories can also be introduced or transferred via genetic editing .

Perhaps research into this particular field goes back decades .

Perhaps even further .

Perhaps they are searching for the Holy Grail .


IARPA Knows the Script

DNA Script today announced that the company and its Molecular Encoding Consortium partners have been awarded a multi-phase contract worth up to $23 million from the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity’s (IARPA) Molecular Information Storage (MIST) program. The goal of the project is to develop sequence-controlled polymers as the basis for deployable storage technologies that can eventually scale into the exabyte regime and beyond….”

“The Molecular Encoding Consortium is led by the Laboratory of Dr. Robert Nicol at the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard and includes DNA Script and Professor Donhee Ham’s Research Group at Harvard University.”

“Established in 2002, one of the major intellectual focuses of Donhee Ham’s research group has been on directly interfacing silicon integrated circuits with biological systems for applications in neuroscience, neurotechnology, and biomolecular spectroscopy.”

“This technology is not mature yet and will require extensive development to be ready to use. IARPA has therefore launched the MIST program to fund initiatives that could turn molecular-based data storage into reality.”

” ‘DNA is the ideal way to store information for long periods of time,’ said Dr. Mostafa Ronaghi, Chief Technology Officer of Illumina.”

Quantum Computing & Communications

Quantum Internet

“The Argonne quantum loop consists of a pair of connected 26-mile fiber-optic cables…A total of 52 miles….”

The loop will serve as a testbed for researchers interested in leveraging the principles of quantum physics to send unhackable information across long distances.”

“Researchers at Argonne and UChicago plan to use the testbed to explore science underlying quantum engineering systems and to harness the properties of quantum entanglement….”

Quantum entanglement links two (or more) particles so that they are in a shared state — such that whatever happens to one immediately affects the other, no matter how far they have travelled apart.”

“The loop will enable us to identify and address challenges in operating a quantum network and can be scaled to test and demonstrate communication across even greater distances to help lay the foundation for a quantum internet.”

“They also began to use the loop for a series of experiments, including transmitting signals from photons emitted from ensembles of ions. These ions can be used as a quantum memory for the network. A functional quantum memory, which entails the storage and retrieval of quantum states, is a key technological advance needed for quantum communication and a quantum internet.”

“In addition to the quantum loop, Argonne plans to develop a two-way quantum link network with Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory.”

“The research, which appears this week in Science, examined the electronic and magnetic behavior of a “strange metal” compound of ytterbium, rhodium and silicon as it both neared and passed through a critical transition at the boundary between two well-studied quantum phases.”

With strange metals, there is an unusual connection between electrical resistance and temperature,”

Quantum entanglement is the basis for storage and processing of quantum information……”

“At the same time, quantum criticality is believed to drive high-temperature superconductivity…..”

 

 


Cultocracy note :

In recent decades shadow research agencies have shown increasing interest in collective biological traits and the possible convergence of these traits .

An oft quoted phrase in D.U.M.B facilities across the Western world goes like this :

“Existence, as you know it, is over. We will add your biological and technological distinctiveness to our own. Resistance is futile.”

An oft quoted response in the real world goes like this :

“F**k you….”


The Quantum Collective

“For the first time, physicists have experimentally demonstrated that certain systems with interacting entities can synchronize only if the entities within the system are different from one another.”

“Northwestern’s Adilson Motter, who led the research, explained that identical entities naturally behave identically—until they start interacting.”

When identical entities interact, they often behave differently from each other…..”

“But we identified scenarios in which the entities behave identically again if you make them suitably different from each other.”

“It is interesting that systems need to be asymmetric to exhibit behavioral symmetry…..”

“Motter and his collaborators made the seemingly impossible possible by using three identical electric generators. Each generator oscillated at a frequency of exactly 100 cycles per second. When separated, the identical generators behaved identically.”

When connected to form a triangle, their frequencies diverged—but only until the generators were properly mismatched to have different energy dissipations. At that point, they synchronized again.”

Motter’s team plans to explore the implications of their findings across social, technological and biological systems.”

Election Day 2020: 32 Americans dead, over 200 injured, martial law declared and the election itself is canceled.”

“Yet, this simulation was not a government-organized exercise but was instead orchestrated by a private company with deep ties to foreign and domestic intelligence services…..”

“…….a company that is also funded by investors with clear connections to individuals who would stand to benefit if such a catastrophic election outcome were to become reality.”

“……..none of those reports on the exercise noted that the company that hosted the simulation, called Cybereason, is led by ex-members of Israel’s military intelligence unit 8200, advised by former top and current officials in both Israeli military intelligence and the CIA.”

“In addition, it is funded by and partnered with top U.S. weapons manufacturer and government contractor Lockheed Martin and financial institutions with clear and direct ties to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and White House adviser and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.”

“In the weeks after the Washington area election simulation, Cybereason repeated the same exercise in London, this time with members of the U.K. Intelligence agency GCHQ………”

“…….the NSA and Unit 8200 have collaborated on numerous projects, most infamously on the Stuxnet virus as well as the Duqu malware.”

“Given Cybereason’s deep and enduring ties to Israeli intelligence and its growing connections to the U.S. military and U.S. intelligence through its hiring of top CIA officials and partnership with Lockheed Martin, it’s worth asking if these disturbing election simulations could serve an ulterior purpose and, if so, who would benefit.”

Mega Satellite Constellations

“A new paper suggests that the agency broke U.S. environmental law in its approval of the satellites and that if it were to be sued in court, it would likely lose

A battle for the sky is raging, and the heavens are losing. Upcoming mega constellations of satellites, designed to blanket Earth orbit in spacecraft beaming high-speed Internet around the world, risk filling the firmament with tens of thousands of moving points of light, forever changing our view of the cosmos.”

“A new paper to be published later this year in the Vanderbilt Journal of Entertainment and Technology Law argues that the Federal Communications Commission—the agency responsible for licensing the operation of these constellations in the U.S.—should have considered the impact these satellites would have on the night sky. In ignoring a key piece of federal environmental legislation, the FCC could be sued in a court of law—and lose—potentially halting further launches of mega constellations until a proper review is carried out.”

The Poodle Bites Back

Britain is preparing to defy Washington and allow Huawei to supply 5G equipment, although the US is expected to mount a last-ditch campaign arguing the Chinese technology still poses a serious security risk.”

“The implication that there are few alternative providers is not expected to placate the US, which believes that Britain is compromising security over cost. It feels there is a surveillance risk from using technology that one source said “was funded by the Chinese People’s Liberation Army”.”

Britain’s spy agencies have also long believed that any risk that Huawei technology could be compromised by the Chinese state to undertake surveillance can be contained…..”

“At the beginning of last week, senior US officials flew over to Britain, and argued that it would be “nothing short of madness” to use Huawei because its technology could be compromised by the Chinese government for mass surveillance.”


Cultocracy note :

A moot point really , considering that Western spy agencies now have unfettered access to Chinese 5G tech .

Which was always the plan .

The modern day Silk Road will take many forms .

Globalist syndicates based in the UK have hedged their bets , they want Chinese money to flow through the city and onward to the overseas havens .

Much to the apparent chagrin of some in the US .

This ‘gesture of defiance’ by UK based globalists marks a trade off between US dominated ‘intelligence’ gathering and future trading and financial investment opportunities .

The primary role of ‘intelligence’ gathering has always been financial and economic advantage .

Playing second fiddle in technological terms is far better than not being in the orchestra at all .

It is the Chinese year of the Rat after all .

Artificial Neural Pathways

“Regaining the function of an impaired limb is highly desirable in paralyzed individuals. One possible avenue to achieve this goal is to bridge the interrupted pathway between preserved neural structures and muscles using a brain–computer interface.”

“Bypassing the damaged pathway using brain-controlled functional electrical stimulation (FES) to regain volitional control of the paralysed limb is promising for restoring lost motor function….”

“Brain-controlled FES works as an “artificial” neural pathway by creating a causal relationship between brain activity and an evoked limb movement.”

“We employed an artificial cortico-muscular connection (ACMC) to connect the preserved cortical areas to muscles beyond the damaged site.”

“To regain volitional control of the paralysed hand, an ACMC was used. The ACMC, accomplished using a brain-computer interface, was designed to detect a high-gamma oscillatory activity pattern (80–120 Hz) from a single electrode and convert it in real time to muscle activity…..”

“Among the possible cortical signals available for BMIs, ECoG offers one of the most clinically feasible options, being less-invasive and less technically difficult for electrode implant surgery compared with other recording methods…..”

“To record oscillatory activities in the brain, we chronically implanted a multichannel ECoG array (Unique Medical Corporation, Tokyo, Japan) in the subdural space in two monkeys………”

“The stimulus electrodes were surgically implanted in the arm, wrist, and hand muscles in a total of 15 muscles in the Monkeys….”

“Some radiation therapy patients report seeing flashes of light in front of their eyes during treatment – even when their eyes are closed.”

“What’s happening, according to a new study, is that enough light is being produced inside the eye to cause these visual sensations. It’s what’s known as Cherenkov emissions or Cherenkov radiation, the same effect that causes nuclear reactors to glow blue when they’re underwater.”

“Models have shown that as the radiation beam passes through the vitreous fluid or the clear gel of the eye, light is generated, and the researchers have provided the direct evidence.”

“Although theories regarding direct nerve stimulation, scintillation of the lens, and ultraweak bioluminescent photons cannot be ruled out, it seems clear that Cherenkov light production throughout the eye is quantifiable and significant……”

“In order to sift through the hundreds of thousands of possible orbits and combinations of perturbations, the team used the Blue Waters supercomputer at University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.”

“They winnowed their constellation designs to two models that could orbit for either a 24- or 48-hour period and achieve continuous coverage over 86% and 95% of the globe, respectively.”

“The ability to extinguish conditioned fear memory is critical for adaptive control of fear response….”

Fear extinction is thought to take place when animals form a new memory that suppresses the original fear memory.”

“Here we demonstrate that a fear extinction memory engram is formed and stored in a genetically distinct basolateral amygdala (BLA) neuronal population……”

“They saw that Ppp1r1b cells were more active and Rspo2 cells were less active in mice that experienced fear extinction.”

“Activation of fear extinction engram neurons and natural reward-responsive neurons overlap significantly in the BLA.”

“Furthermore, these two neuronal subsets are mutually interchangeable in driving reward behaviors and fear extinction behaviors.”

Thus, fear extinction memory is a newly formed reward memory.”

Investigating “joy extinction” via these mechanisms might be an interesting research topic.”

Synthetic Biology

Frogbot

“Now a team of scientists has repurposed living cells — scraped from frog embryos — and assembled them into entirely new life-forms. These millimeter-wide “xenobots” can move toward a target, perhaps pick up a payload (like a medicine that needs to be carried to a specific place inside a patient) — and heal themselves after being cut.”

“They’re neither a traditional robot nor a known species of animal. It’s a new class of artifact: a living, programmable organism.”

“The new creatures were designed on a supercomputer at UVM…”

“With months of processing time on the Deep Green supercomputer cluster at UVM’s Vermont Advanced Computing Core, the team — including lead author and doctoral student Sam Kriegman — used an evolutionary algorithm to create thousands of candidate designs for the new life-forms.”

“As the programs ran — driven by basic rules about the biophysics of what single frog skin and cardiac cells can do — the more successful simulated organisms were kept and refined, while failed designs were tossed out.”

“First they gathered stem cells, harvested from the embryos of African frogs, the species Xenopus laevis. (Hence the name “xenobots.”) These were separated into single cells and left to incubate. Then, using tiny forceps and an even tinier electrode, the cells were cut and joined under a microscope into a close approximation of the designs specified by the computer.”

“Assembled into body forms never seen in nature, the cells began to work together.”

“The big question in biology is to understand the algorithms that determine form and function………”

“There’s all of this innate creativity in life….We want to understand that more deeply — and how we can direct and push it toward new forms.”

“To bioengineer heart valves, the team first made a 3-D scaffold shaped like a heart valve, using a special nano-fiber-based biomaterial…….”

“Then they injected the scaffold with living cardiac stem cells……”

“The cells grew and multiplied over a period of 15 days, gradually and partially replacing the scaffold, which slowly degraded.”

“This process is expected to continue inside the body after implantation, until the valve is fully integrated with the patient’s native tissue.”

Magic Mushrooms – Fungal Atmospheric Shrapnel

UCI chemists report that they’ve found nanoscale fragments of fungal cells in the atmosphere. The pieces are extremely small, measuring about 30 nanometers in diameter, and much more abundant than previously thought…….”

“It was unexpected to identify them as fungal fragments. The appearance of large numbers of atmospheric nanoparticles is usually ascribed to reactions of gases in the atmosphere…….”

“He said these lofted bits of fungus are easier to inhale deep into the lungs than intact cells…..”

“This means they may contribute to fungus-related allergic reactions and asthma among susceptible people.”

“The fungal nanoparticle events occurred more frequently during rainy periods, in some cases immediately after a rain event….”

“If rain impaction at the surface directly drove the fungal nanoparticles into the atmosphere, we would expect a simultaneous increase in number over a wider range of sizes. That this did not occur means the fungal nanoparticles were usually released either as a result of atmospheric processing of larger ejected particles or by another process at the land surface.”

“The study also explored how these tiny crumbs of biological matter might aid in the creation of ice clouds, as some such cells have been found to facilitate ice formation in the sky.”

“Large, intact biological cells are extremely rare in the atmosphere, but we’ve identified fungal nanoparticles in orders-of-magnitude higher concentrations, so if some or all of these are good ice nuclei, they could play a role in ice cloud formation…..”

How nanoparticles from the environment enter the brain

A group of scientists from the Russian Academy of Sciences (ICG SB RAS) and the TSU Biological Institute has established a path through which nanoparticles of viruses and organic and inorganic substances from the environment enter the brain.”

“Additionally, the researchers report a simple and inexpensive way to block their entry.”

“They cannot penetrate through the lungs and blood vessels because the blood-brain barrier blocks them from the brain.”

The researchers introduced a solution with nanoparticles into the nasal cavities of laboratory animals and used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to monitor their dispersal through the structures of the brain.”

“Studies have shown that particles appear in the olfactory bulb within three hours. The concentration increases and reaches a maximum after 12 hours in the hippocampus, dentate gyrus and other brain structures; the maximum load is observed after three to four days. The movement corresponds to the trajectory of the nerve connections of the olfactory system.”

“An equally important discovery was the fact that the introduction of some nanoparticles into the noses of rodents corresponded with body temperature quickly decreasing by several degrees. Along the way, the researchers established that an outflow of cerebrospinal fluid occurred.”

It turned out that in the nose, there is a whole cascade of events.”

 

How US sewage plants can remove medicines from wastewater

“The research points to two treatment methods — granular activated carbon and ozonation — as being particularly promising.”

Each technique reduced the concentration of a number of pharmaceuticals, including certain antidepressants and antibiotics, in water by more than 95%, the scientists’ analysis found.”

“The findings are important because any drugs discharged from treatment plants can enter the environment, where they may contribute to phenomena such as antibiotic resistance, or be consumed by wildlife.”

Nanotech fights Sepsis

Sepsis is a potentially life-threatening condition that stems from the body’s immune response against an infection. If there is an acute infection in the body, the immune system releases chemicals to fight the pathogen. However, when it goes out of balance, sepsis occurs and can lead to multiple organ failure.”

“In a normal immune response, macrophages are the first line of defense. They are the first ones in the site of infection that work by engulfing or eating the pathogens or disease-causing microorganisms.”

“……..the researchers used nanotechnology to transform donated healthy immune cells into a drug formulation with greater and more potent power to kill bacteria.”

“The study involved two technologies in finding a treatment for sepsis – using vitamins in formulating lipid nanoparticles and taking advantage of natural cell processes in making a new antibacterial medicine.”

“The nanoparticles are designed to deliver messenger RNA, which are molecules that can translate genetic information into useful proteins.”

“After, the scientists transported the nanoparticles containing the developed messenger RNA into the macrophages they created. “

A pinch of Salt

Sodium chloride nanoparticles (SCNPs)—more commonly known as salt—are toxic to cancer cells and offer the potential for therapies that have fewer negative side effects than current treatments.”

“…….the study found that SCNPs can be used as a Trojan horse to deliver ions into cells and disrupt their internal environment, leading to cell death. SCNPs become salt when they degrade, so they’re not harmful to the body.”

Nanoparticles are the key to delivering SCNPs into cells……..”

“They found that SCNP treatment suppressed tumor growth by 66 percent…….”

Vaccine Venality

“Anyone who has paid the least bit of attention to the doings of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in recent decades knows that accusations of “regulatory dereliction and corporate capture” are no exaggeration.”

The latest FDA critique comes not from the popular press, however, but from three high-powered experts affiliated with Harvard Medical School—who air their appraisal in the prestigious Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA).”

“…..when drug companies started paying cash right up front, for FDA review, the FDA started looking upon the industry as their client, instead of the public and the public health, which should be the client. “

“The overall picture is not of a struggling FDA, but rather of a regulatory process that has evolved over time into a thicket of special programs, flexible review criteria, and generous incentives.”

“As the most vaccinated generation of American children ever has developed historically unprecedented levels of chronic illness, the FDA continues to bestow its regulatory largesse on drugs designed to profitably manage these chronic conditions, including drugs for vaccine-linked conditions…”

“The fact that the public’s health seems to occupy last place on the FDA’s priority list is, in some respects, unsurprising, particularly to those who have followed the agency’s behavior with regard to vaccine approvals and regulation.”

Students Like Booze and Drugs

“Conducted by Harold Bae from OSU’s College of Public Health and Human Sciences and David Kerr from OSU’s College of Liberal Arts….”

Marijuana use among college students has been trending upward for years, but in states that have legalized recreational marijuana, use has jumped even higher.”

“Overall, students in states with legal marijuana were 18% more likely to have used marijuana in the past 30 days than students in states that had not legalized the drug.”

It’s easy to look at the findings and think, ‘Yeah, of course rates would increase,’ Kerr said.”

“Using the same dataset, they found that after legalization, students ages 21 and older showed a greater drop in binge drinking……..”

“Researchers have not yet tested any hypotheses as to why binge drinking fell, but they have some ideas.”

An outside study previously found that illegal marijuana use decreases sharply when people hit 21 – where there is a sharp increase in alcohol use.”

Nanotechnology News – December 2019

Introduction


Cultocracy introduction :

Actually three introductions this week , all related .

News this month tells us that the newly (s)elected UK government are due to create a defence research agency modeled on the infamous DARPA .

Which at first glance may appear to be a step up from being on the payroll of DARPA .

Unfortunately things are never that simple .

This move has been in the pipeline for a while , proving that where the US leads , the UK follows , usually on a lead .

Looks like DSTL have been taken over , or are they simply too tame , or perhaps they have grown a conscience , or perhaps they have rebelled ?

Even worse , a motley collection of Whitehall based establishment degenerates and reprobates are set to head ‘up North’ to the restive badlands and regional areas of the UK .

Ostensibly under the guise of ‘reorganization’ and ‘regeneration’ .

I wonder what has spooked the establishment ?

Lock up your children .


 


Cultocracy note :

Shadow organizations behind the scenes have controlled the ‘high ground’ since the inception of the Strategic Defence Initiative (SDI) back in 1984 .

Once the high ground is captured it must be held .

Fueled by the fabricated fear of nuclear annihilation , a broad array of cutting edge space based technologies have been funded and developed , along with their terrestrial equivalents and the accompanying underground command and control infrastructure .

Deterrence soon spiraled downwards to degeneracy and destruction , the entire system is now available for hire , at the right price of course .

Sinister hidden agendas are currently being trialed , tested and implemented .

Many are only now starting to wake up to the underlying horror of full spectrum dominance .

Recent news suggests that the UK wishes to set up a ‘Space Command’ , as do other countries .

This move has been in the pipeline for a while , proving (yet again) that where the US leads the UK follows , now on a tight lead .

SDI 2.0 is the name of the new (old) game .

Cultocracy note :

What is really behind the race for hypersonic weaponry and hypersonic travel ?


Battlefield Earth

“We can say today we are dominant in space but the trend lines are what you have to look at and they will pass us in the next few years if we do not do something.”

They will win this race and then they will put roadblocks up to space….”

“….because once you get the high ground, that strategic high ground, it’s curtains for anybody trying to get to that high ground behind them.”

“….the United States must be able to bring kinetic power, non-kinetic power, and informational power to the battlefield….”

“But I’ve had the benefit of 33 years of studying and becoming friends with these scientists. This technology can be built today with technology that is not developmental to deliver any human being from any place on planet Earth to any other place in less than an hour.”

Is all this setting the stage for a new space race that will benefit mankind by furthering scientific and technological development, or is it ushering in the conditions for the first great space war?

Genetics

Super Slaves Soldiers

“There are concerns in the scientific community over the threat that rogue or amateur scientists messing with DNA might pose to humanity.”

“In August of this year, the World Health Organisation launched a global registry to track all research on human genome editing.”

“The CERES is currently drawing up recommendations for the European Commission on the ethics of gene editing.”

Char Siu

Pig-primate chimeras have been born live for the first time but died within a week. The two piglets, created by a team in China, looked normal although a small proportion of their cells were derived from cynomolgus monkeys.”

“Hai and his colleagues genetically modified cynomolgus monkey cells growing in culture so they produced a fluorescent protein called GFP. This enabled the researchers to track the cells and their descendents. They then derived embryonic stem cells from the modified cells and injected them into pig embryos five days after fertilisation.”

“In the chimeric piglets, multiple tissues – including in the heart, liver, spleen, lung and skin – partly consisted of monkey cells….”

“The ultimate aim of the work is to grow human organs in animals for transplantation.”

 

Crispy Duck

“Jeremy J. Day, PhD, bet the house on CRISPR technologies capable of manipulating chromatin modifications at specific DNA and histone loci.”

“Day believes that CRISPR editing approaches have the potential to reveal how modulating epigenetic marks at individual chromatin sites can directly impact neuronal function and behavior.”

“…….histone-modifying enzymes have been fused to catalytically inactive Cas9 endonucleases….”

Chromatin modulation in this manner allows for stable, reversible manipulation of epigenetic marks at targeted cis-regulatory elements.”

“Day says that the most straightforward way to use CRISPR for epigenome editing in the nervous system involves distinct types of viral vectors. Lentiviruses or adeno-associated viruses (AAV)….”

“You can target any genome, whether it’s mouse, primate, or human…..”

“These chromatin modification tools also allow for the study of genetic variants…….”

“These CRISPR tools are a major leap towards proving causal interplay between chromatin state and neuronal responses for cognition and behavior…………”

Gutted by Glyphosate

“The primary mechanism of how glyphosate herbicides kill plants is by inhibiting an enzyme called EPSPS, which is part of a biochemical pathway known as the shikimate pathway. “

Humans and animals do not have the shikimate pathway, so industry and regulators have claimed that glyphosate is nontoxic to humans.”

“However, some strains of gut bacteria do have the shikimate pathway…..”

“……..researchers found that both Roundup and glyphosate affected the microbiome at all dose levels tested, causing shifts in bacterial populations.”

“The researchers also saw other changes in the gut metabolome that were indicative of oxidative stress, a type of imbalance that can lead to mutations in DNA, damage to cells and tissues, and diseases such as cancer.”

 


 

Quantum Computing & Communications


Cultocracy note :

Current Western quantum computing technology is limited to military and intelligence research organizations , together with their affiliates , sugar daddies and sponsors .

There is now a race to commercialize the technology , before the Chinese beat them to it .

There also appears to be an attempt to reverse engineer quantum technology to fit in with real world applications .

You can guarantee that the really juicy stuff will be kept behind locked (blast) doors .


Quantum FVEY Intel

Intel Labs this morning is releasing details of its new Horse Ridge cryogenic control chip that it has developed with QuTech, and hopes will pave the way towards commercially viable quantum computers.”

“Intel describes Horse Ridge as a highly integrated, mixed-signal SoC that sits as close as possible near the quantum device. It resides inside the refrigerator and thus had to be designed to operate at cryogenic temperatures of ~4 Kelvin. As a result, the complexity of quantum control engineering can be reduced from hundreds of cables to a single unified package, which Intel claims is a first-of-its-kind achievement.”


Cultocracy note :

Considering that this chip is being developed by intel……..

Perhaps a more appropriate name would be “Trojan Horse Ridge” ?


 

Hybrid Cr…apps

D-Wave Systems has announced a partnership with Japanese industrial giant NEC today to build what they call “hybrid apps and services” that work on a combination of NEC high-performance computers and D-Wave’s quantum systems.”

“Across government, business, and academia, Japanese D-Wave customers have pushed real-world application development forward by tapping into quantum to start solving business-critical problems today,”

Quantum Carbide

“…….scientists with the University of Chicago announced a significant breakthrough: Quantum states can be integrated and controlled in commonly used electronic devices made from silicon carbide.”

“In two papers the group demonstrated they could electrically control quantum states embedded in silicon carbide.”

“The breakthrough could offer a means to more easily design and build quantum electronics—in contrast to using exotic materials scientists usually need to use for quantum experiments, such as superconducting metals, levitated atoms or diamonds.”

“These quantum states in silicon carbide have the added benefit of emitting single particles of light with a wavelength near the telecommunications band.”

“This makes them well suited to long-distance transmission through the same fiber-optic network that already transports 90% of all international data worldwide,” said Awschalom, senior scientist at Argonne National Laboratory….”

“….we found that applying electric fields removes the electrons from the system and makes it much more stable.”

“Such quantum networks would bring about a novel class of technologies allowing for the creation of unhackable communication channels, the teleportation of single electron states and the realization of a quantum internet.”

“applying electric fields” = microwaving

“surprise breakthrough” = decades old technology

A far more sophisticated version of the technology described below underpins the Western FVEY technocratic model of governance .

Extensively used and routinely abused by all ‘intelligence’ agencies and other affiliated research organizations secreted within the Western military industrial complex .

Money and power are the narcotics of choice .

The entire system is also accessible to fringe organizations , oligarchs , or manufactured proxies , for the right price of course .

The synthetic scheme was trialed and rolled out in the domestic FVEY realms and massively extended after the year 2001 .

The ‘War on Terror’ provided an extremely convenient pretext .

As always , the keyword is control .


Mind Reading

“The computer-brain interface that has been developed by Neurobotics and MIPT relies on a combination of electroencephalography (EEG) and artificial neural networks.”

“An artificial neural network is an attempt to simulate the network of neurons that make up a human brain so that the computer will be able to learn things and make decisions in a human-like manner. ANNs are created by programming regular computers to behave as though they are interconnected brain cells.”

“The current solutions for extracting and analyzing observed images from human brain signals use signals picked up via implants from neurons, or functional MRI.”

“By combining machine learning with AI and sophisticated computing, the system that has been developed reconstructs the images that a person undergoing EEG views in real-time.”

AI hits the buffers

“Leaders in artificial intelligence warn that progress is slowing, big challenges remain, and simply throwing more computers at a problem isn’t sustainable.”

“…a system trained to show superhuman performance at one videogame is incapable of playing any other.”

“They need much more data to learn a task than human examples of intelligence…..”

5G & IoT

5G & Skin Cancer

“The non-ionizing 5G RF-EMF can behave like high LET (Linear Energy Transfer) ionizing radiations which have the maximum energy deposition per unit distance.”

“Considering the low penetration and very high energy deposition per unit distance of 5G, this can lead to generation of high levels of free radicals in a short distance which in turn increases the risk of skin cancer.”

“Yakymenko et al. have reported that among 100 peer-reviewed studies regarding the oxidative effects of low-intensity radiofrequency radiation , 93 confirmed that radiofrequency radiation induced oxidative effects in biological systems .”

“Oxidative stress necessarily doesn’t increase the chance of cancer. Although direct damage to DNA can be considered a key event…..”

Terahertz radiation has long been tempting scientists and cell phone companies alike.”

“They used a special electronic component called a resonant tunneling diode.”

“…the scientists synchronized the rapidly received terahertz signals with an internal electronic oscillator in the device, and then separated the data from the carrier wave.”

“This technology can be put to work in a wide range of applications, in addition to next-generation 6G wireless communication.”

“These include spectroscopic sensing, non-destructive inspection, and high-resolution radar….”


Cultocracy note :

Does this mean that future 5G+ technology may also serve as a ‘sensing’ and ‘inspection’ system ?


 


 

Implants


Cultocracy note :

More proof , if it is needed , that previous militarized and covert Western MIC technologies are being commercialized and brought to market , hopefully before the Chinese market their own versions .

Implant technologies have been trialed and tested extensively by Western military and intelligence organizations over previous decades .

It should also go without saying that the financial benefits regarding the abuse of this type of technology far outweigh the potential financial benefits from ‘medical’ usage .

Money is everything in a modern world , at least for some .

Warning : Window dressing ahead .


Artificial Neurons

“Critically the artificial neurons not only behave just like biological neurons but only need one billionth the power of a microprocessor, making them ideally suited for use in medical implants and other bio-electronic devices.”

“Artificial neurons could repair diseased bio-circuits by replicating their healthy function and responding adequately to biological feedback to restore bodily function.”

“This approach offers a route for repairing diseased biocircuits and emulating their function with biomedical implants that can adapt to biofeedback.”

All experiments were performed under Schedule 1 in accordance with the United Kingdom Scientific Procedures (act of 1986).

“…….the team showcases a map to identify which parts of the spinal cord trigger the hip, knees, ankles and toes, and the areas that put movements together. The work has shown that the spinal maps have been remarkably consistent across the animal spectrum, but further work is required before moving to human trials.”

Ultrasound Blows your Mind

“The tiny ultrasound would be implanted during surgery into a window in the skull that does not contain bone.”

“It is used in combination with microscopic gas bubbles injected into the blood at the same time the ultrasound begins.”

“When the bubbles hit the sound waves, these vibrate and mechanically disrupt the blood-brain barrier. The opening is immediate, allowing penetration of the drug molecules.”

“The blood-brain barrier opening is reversible and lasts for several hours after the sonication. The ultrasound emitter remains in the skull for repeated delivery of the drug.”

Ultrasound and Nanoparticles

Optogenetics, a tool for controlling neurons with light, has given neuroscientists the ability to flip brain cells on and off more or less at will, revolutionizing neuroscience.”

“Here, we report a method termed “sono-optogenetics,” which provides minimally invasive optogenetic neuromodulation in the brain without any scalp incision, craniotomy, or brain implant.”

“……..nanoparticles that can act as local light sources in the brain when triggered by brain-penetrant focused ultrasound (FUS) through intact scalp and skull.”

“To address these challenges of optogenetics, we replace direct light illumination with focused ultrasound (FUS), the latter of which affords much deeper penetration in biological tissues including the brain….”

Nanoparticles have recently been demonstrated to enable novel neural modulation interfaces, owing to their unique capability of converting light and magnetic field into electricity and heat for neural stimulation….”

“This work was performed in part at the Stanford Nano Shared Facilities and the Cell Sciences Imaging Facility of Stanford University.”

“Landre plans to install in himself an apparatus that senses the cosmic rays that surround us, unseen. The device that will soon be implanted in his arm converts those rays into musical notes . It converts those notes into the vibrations of a set of metal rods that will one day be implanted with a wireless connection on the surface of his skull.”

Remote Sensing & Stimulation

Quantum Sensing

“It will soon be possible to have perfectly accurate navigation under water, to sense changes in gravity that reveal potential volcanic activity, climate change and earthquakes, to monitor brain activity on the go, and even to see round corners.”

Quantum-enabled imaging will make smaller, portable systems possible. It will even be possible to create systems that can monitor the magnetic fields from patients’ brains as they go about their daily lives.”

Quantum sensing will be disruptive. The question is, who will take advantage?


Cultocracy note :

I think we all know who will be taking advantage .

The Minds Eye

“A Dartmouth study finds that the conscious perception of visual location occurs in the frontal lobes of the brain, rather than in the visual system in the back of the brain.”

“Our study provides clear evidence that the visual system is not representing what we see but is representing the physical world…”

What we see emerges later in the processing hierarchy, in the frontal areas of the brain that are not usually associated with visual processing.”

“Our data firmly support that frontal areas are critical to the emergence of conscious perception….”

 

Quantum Dots

Quantum dots are nanometer-scale with unique chemical and physical properties relative to their structure and composition.”

“The combined biocompatible FeSe QDs and multiphoton imaging can open a new method to realize noninvasive in situ bioimaging within live subjects.”

Laser Ultrasound

MIT engineers have come up with an alternative to conventional ultrasound that doesn’t require contact with the body to see inside a patient.”

“The new laser ultrasound technique leverages an eye- and skin-safe laser system to remotely image the inside of a person.”

“When trained on a patient’s skin, one laser remotely generates sound waves that bounce through the body.”

“A second laser remotely detects the reflected waves, which researchers then translate into an image similar to conventional ultrasound.”

“In recent years, researchers have explored laser-based methods in ultrasound excitation in a field known as photoacoustics. Instead of directly sending sound waves into the body, the idea is to send in light, in the form of a pulsed laser tuned at a particular wavelength, that penetrates the skin and is absorbed by blood vessels.”

“This research was supported in part by the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Biomedical Line Program for the United States Air Force and by the U.S. Army Medical Research and Material Command’s Military Operational Medicine Research Program.”

 


 

Neuroscience


Cultocracy note :

Dream based conditioning is practiced by all FVEY affiliated Western ‘intelligence’ outfits together with their underlings who staff the myriad of affiliated corporate assets .

It offers a silent , synthetic and sophisticated method of trauma based brainwashing .

Primarily used for behavioral modification , memory blurring or consolidation and subliminal programming .

Do you know what you are doing Dave ?


Call the Cavalry

“Recent neuroscientific theories have proposed that emotions experienced in dreams contribute to the resolution of emotional distress and preparation for future affective reactions.”

“……frightening dreams modulated the response of these same regions to threatening stimuli during wakefulness.”

“……higher incidence of fear in their dreams showed reduced emotional arousal and fMRI response to fear‐eliciting stimuli in the insula, amygdala and midcingulate cortex, while awake.”

“We recently reported that specific dream contents—such as faces, places, movement, speech, and thoughts—engage similar cortical networks as during wakefulness……”

REM sleep was found to play a role in emotional memory consolidation , including fear memory consolidation….”

“Indeed, we could also suggest that fear suppression during wakefulness may lead to increased excitability of fear‐related experiences during sleep…..”

Brainstem and Dreaming

Sleep is characterised by rapid transitions between REM (rapid eye movement) and non-REM states, the former being hallmarked by rapid eye movements (EMs), atony of the postural muscles, desynchronized electro-encephalographic (EEG) activity and vivid dreaming.”

“The capability to induce EMs during REM sleep on command affords a powerful tool for the investigation of their functions.”

“Rats were deprived of REM sleep by implementing a modified version of the flower-pot technique….”

“Retrograde tracing was performed using an attenuated rabies virus technique……”

“This research has revealed the crucial involvement of several brainstem areas, located prevalently in the pons .”

Materials

Thermal Imaging Camouflage

“The new coating — engineered from samarium nickel oxide, a unique tunable material — employs a bit of temperature trickery.”

“What makes the material special is its quantum nature – properties that are unexplainable by classical physics.”

“We built a coating that ‘breaks’ the relationship between temperature and thermal radiation in a very particular way”

“Essentially, there is a temperature range within which the power of the thermal radiation emitted by our coating stays the same.”

“….the coating could have applications in heat transfer, camouflage and, as infrared cameras become widely available to consumers, even in clothing to protect people’s personal privacy.”

“The work was supported by the Office of Naval Research, the National Science Foundation, the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and Sandia National Labs.”

 

Biodegradable Adhesive

“The key ingredient is carbon dioxide,” Beharaj explains. About 20 to 40 percent of the biodegradable adhesive, which has the consistency of honey or molasses, is composed of CO2

“Grinstaff and Beharaj estimate that their adhesive will take a year or less to fully break down in the environment, unlike plastic which will pollute landfills for hundreds of years.”

“The naturally derived and biodegradable materials are also completely safe to use on or in the human body…..”

This kind of corrupt behavior is widespread , in fact you could say it is standard practice .


Liars , cheats and thieves

The study, published in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology on Dec. 5, provides the first evidence that the measurements relied upon by regulatory agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are flawed, underestimating exposure levels by as much as 44 times.”

“What it comes down to is that the conclusions federal agencies have come to about how to regulate BPA may have been based on inaccurate measurements.”

Nanoparticles for Heart Health

“The research team developed a nanoparticle, known as a micelle, which attaches itself and lights up calcification to make it easier for smaller blockages that are prone to rupture to be seen during imaging.”

“Chin said the micelles are able to specifically target hydroxyapatite, a unique form of calcium present in arteries and atherosclerotic plaques.”

“The idea behind nanoparticles and nanomedicine is that it can be a carrier like the Amazon carrier system, shuttling drugs right to a specific address or location in the body, and not to places that you don’t want it to go to….”

 

Quantum Dots Deliver Vaccines

“Researchers headed by a team at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) have created a microneedle platform using fluorescent microparticles called quantum dots (QD), which can deliver vaccines and at the same time invisibly encode vaccination history directly in the skin.”

“The quantum dots are composed of nanocrystals, which emit near-infrared (NIR) light that can be detected by a specially equipped smartphone.”

“By selectively loading microparticles into microneedles, the patches deliver a pattern in the skin that is invisible to the naked eye but can be scanned with a smartphone that has the infrared filter removed.”

“In summary, we have demonstrated proof of concept for a platform capable of invisibly recording data in the skin.”

 


 

$cientific $cammer of the month

$tellar $cam

The team, headed by Prof. LIU Jifeng of the National Astronomical Observatory of China of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (NAOC), spotted a stellar black hole with a mass 70 times greater than the Sun. The monster black hole is located 15 thousand light-years from Earth and has been named LB-1 by the researchers. The discovery is reported in the latest issue of Nature.”

The discovery came as a big surprise.”

Black holes of such mass should not even exist in our Galaxy, according to most of the current models of stellar evolution,said Prof. LIU.”

The research team comprised scientists from China, the United States, Spain, Australia, Italy, Poland and the Netherlands.”


Cultocracy note

Oh dear , it appears that the Chinese are now following the lead of their counterparts in NASA .

Anti-Aging – The new Fatbuster

“An American biotech company has launched clinical trials in Colombia to test a new therapy designed to reverse the aging process, and in turn, treat age-related diseases, according to news reports.”

“The pricey trial is being run by Libella Gene Therapeutics, a Kansas-based company whose website proclaims that “the future is here.” “

“In fact, in its own press release, the company boasted, without evidence, that its gene therapy “may be the world’s first cure for Alzheimer’s disease.” The bold claim raises an obvious question: Will the treatment actually work? “

“Short answer: No one really knows

Surviving the Century

gas-mask-numbers


Cultocracy note :

After centuries of gorging at the trough and enriching themselves from mass consumerism , wars and resource pillage the global power players have become increasingly aware that their business model is unsustainable .

There are now only two options available .

Never underestimate the degree of corruption and insanity caused by unrestrained power and greed .


 

The Final Solution

“Still increasing by roughly 80 million people per year, or more than 200,000 per day , the world population must be stabilized—and, ideally, gradually reduced—within a framework that ensures social integrity.”

“There are proven and effective policies that strengthen human rights while lowering fertility rates……”

“These policies make family-planning services available to all people, remove barriers to their access and achieve full gender equity, including primary and secondary education……”

 

Surviving the Century

“……..The rapid pace of AI advancements risks increasing the divide between the richest and poorest.”

Plan B for for CO2 emissions is geoengineering , where we put some kind of dust in the atmosphere……”

AI systems will become more intrusive and invasive……”

“The money earned by robots will clearly generate huge wealth for individuals…..”

“This wealth will have to be evenly distributed amongst the population…..”

“It is at least on the cards that human beings may become malleable through the deployment of genetic enhancement and cybernetics .”

“It is beyond our Earth that cyber and genetic technologies have the most spectacular scope…..”

“Human intelligence may be superceded by electronic intelligence…..”

“The gap between the way things are and the way they could be is much wider than previous generations .”

 

Climate Brain Change

“We will encourage governmental, educational, health, and corporate leaders to use more psychological science in police designs as well as to adopt norms, values, and policy to promote sustainable preventive and corrective behaviors in individuals, groups and communities….”

Eugenics Lite

“Anxious couples are approaching fertility doctors in the US with requests for a hotly debated new genetic test being called “23andMe, but on embryos.” “

“The company says it can use DNA measurements to predict which embryos from an IVF procedure are least likely to end up with any of 11 different common diseases.”

“The DNA test claims to let prospective parents weed out IVF embryos with a high risk of disease or low intelligence.”

“Right off the bat it raises all kind of questions about eugenics…..”

“Nathan Treff believes even fertile couples might begin to undergo IVF just so they can select the best child….”

I do believe this is going to be the future…….

 

Integrated Stress Response (ISR) and Cognition

“The researchers discovered that hippocampal cells in DS mice had activated what’s known as the integrated stress response (ISR)….”

“Though the ISR can be activated by four different enzymes, the scientists found that only one of them, named PKR, was involved in activating the ISR in hippocampal cells in DS.”


Cultocracy note :

When contacted for comment , the scientific team at UC San Francisco stated that they were ‘surprised to be contacted for a surprising comment on very surprising research based on not very surprising former surprising research’ “.

Cultocracy note :

The following articles are all connected .

Behavioral and societal control has now gone into scientific overdrive .

Imagine if you had a little box of chemicals or protein based ‘angel dust’ , which could be used to repress or enhance a particular genetic trait ? Perhaps almost any particular genetic trait ? Perhaps enhance a particular sense ? Perhaps enable rapid tissue healing ? Perhaps enable neural tissue regeneration ?

Perhaps………..

The list is endless .

Inevitably , the tools of mass destruction , control and conditioning have now been turned inwards on the domestic population .

I wonder where the ideology stems from ?


 

Histerone Chaperone

“It’s long been known that the proteins that package DNA require a chaperone.”

“The FACT protein is an essential type of histone chaperone. “

“These guardian proteins escort other proteins during the deconstruction and reconstruction of nucleosomes, or the structural unit responsible for organizing and packaging DNA. “

“This happens during gene transcription (the step where DNA is copied into RNA), DNA replication (where the entire genome is replicated faithfully) and DNA damage repair (which is essential to prevent disease such as cancer).”

 

The X Factor

“The field of epigenetic research has been making huge strides in identifying the mechanisms involved in controlling how genes are expressed.”

“A lot of effort is put into studying the importance of the genetic code documented in cells, but also of the structure of the chromatin supporting it.”

“Over the course of development, epigenetic mechanisms like DNA methylation and histone modifications can be turn genes on and off several times.”

 

Adam and the Ants

“Through early adulthood, exposure to new experiences—like learning to drive a car or memorizing information for an exam—triggers change in the human brain, re-wiring neural pathways to imprint memories and modify behavior.”

“Now researchers have discovered that a protein called CoRest , a neural repressor that is also found in humans, plays a central role in determining the social behavior of ants.”

“researchers in Berger’s lab showed it’s possible to reprogram, or directly alter, the caste-specific behavior in Major workers by injecting them with a single dose of a histone-altering chemical…”

“While the results suggested epigenetically-encoded behavioral malleability in ants, it was unclear how long the “epigenetic window of vulnerability” remained open.”

“In this study, researchers injected the same histone-altering chemInevitably the tools of mass destruction , control and conditioning have now been turned inwards on the domestic population .ical, a histone deacetylase inhibitor called trichostatin A (TSA)…..”

“…….epigenetic control of JH (Juvenile Hormone) levels was responsible for the natural behavioral differences between Major and Minor workers.”

 

Swiss Gene Knife

“I am most interested in small chemical marks attached to the DNA molecule that do not alter the genetic information itself, but influence what happens to the DNA….”

“In other words, these marks have an epigenetic effect.”

“They serve as regulators of genomic regions that are responsible for the activation and deactivation of genes , such as promoters and enhancers.”

“The analysis of histone proteins by chromatin immunoprecipitation (ChIP) in tandem with DNA sequencing then reveals which enhancers are active and which are not.”

“His team hopes the new tool will make the field more accessible as well as accelerate research to help identify the causes of complex human diseases.”


Cultocracy note :

Unfortunately there are some in the scientific community that think the masses are the ‘complex human disease’ .

I wonder who pays their wages ?

AI


Cultocracy note :

Now the Pope has weighed in on the rapid advancement of AI , warning of a ‘regression to a form of barbarism’ .

Which could be construed as the destruction of religion and the rise of a new God , perhaps a less benevolent God , in the form of an artificially intelligent machine .

Although personally I think that most organized religions have already completed the job of internal collapse themselves , with a little helping hand of course .

In a new era of asymmetric psychotronic warfare , religious people of any and every persuasion are seen as easy meat for manipulation and mind control .

There are no boundaries in the modern world .


Technocracy vs Religion

“…the “technocratic paradigm” – that promises uncontrolled and unlimited progress will be imposed and perhaps will even eliminate other factors of development, with great danger for the whole of humanity.”

“……..it is possible, as never before, to circulate tendentious opinions and false data that could poison public debates and even manipulate the opinions of millions of people, to the point of endangering the very institutions that guarantee peaceful civil coexistence.”

 

AI Head Shrinks

“Now, CU Boulder researchers are working to apply machine learning to psychiatry, with a speech-based mobile app that can categorize a patient’s mental health status as well as or better than a human can.”

“In pursuit of an AI version of that blood test, Elvevåg and Foltz teamed up to develop machine learning technology able to detect day-to-day changes in speech that hint at mental health decline.”

“For instance, sentences that don’t follow a logical pattern can be a critical symptom in schizophrenia. Shifts in tone or pace can hint at mania or depression. And memory loss can be a sign of both cognitive and mental health problems.”

“He and his colleagues envision a day when AI system serve as a remote-monitoring system for the severely mentally ill.”


Cultocracy note :

The current militarized FVEY based system for persistent surveillance has been in place for decades and works on the principles described in the above article .

There is constant jostling among the alphabet syndicates for ultimate control .

An uneasy power sharing agreement based on totalitarian and authoritarian goals unites every faction .

It is used extensively on human assets and human guinea pigs , along with a vast array of unfortunates , expendables & experimentees . The vast majority of whom are plucked from the ‘lower’ social classes .

Paradoxically the exact same system is also used to promote the symptoms of severe mental illness in a target .

Or worse .


Artificial Brain can See

“Researchers at Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Tübingen in Germany have built deep artificial neural networks that can accurately predict the neural responses produced by a biological brain to arbitrary visual stimuli.”

“These networks can be thought of as a ‘virtual avatar’ of a population of biological neurons, which can be used to dissect the neural mechanisms of sensation.”

“To test whether the network had indeed learned to predict neural responses to visual images like a living mouse brain would do, we showed the network images it had not seen during learning and saw that it predicted the biological neuronal responses with high accuracy….”


Cultocracy note :

Hmmmmmm…….I wonder if you could reverse the process and introduce an artificially produced neural visual response to the brain ?


 

Facial Repression

“US technology company Microsoft says it is investigating whether the use of facial recognition technology developed by an Israeli startup it funded “complies with its ethics principles,” following reports that Israel uses the company’s facial recognition technology for surveillance on Palestinians.”

AnyVision has come under scrutiny following reports by NBC News and Israeli media that its technology is used to surveil Palestinians who live in the occupied territories.”


Cultocracy note :

Am I missing something here or aren’t all facial recognition systems ultimately used for surveillance , oppression and control ?

As for the omnipresent surveillance of Palestinians , it could be worse , they could be a Palestinian living in the UK .

5G & IoT

Not surprisingly , many commentators suspect that there has been historical manipulation and suppression of the science surrounding non-ionizing radiation .

More and more scientific studies point to the opposite of the official line .

It could make a person wonder what is there to hide ?


Danish Legal Opinion against 5G

“It is the conclusion of this legal opinion that establishing and activating a 5G-network, as it is currently described, would be in contravention of current human and environmental laws enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights, the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, EU regulations, and the Bern- and Bonn-conventions.”

“The reason is the very significant body of scientific documentation available, showing that radiofrequent electromagnetic radiation is harmful and dangerous to the health of humans (particularly children), animals and plants.”

Smart Toilets

Urine contains a virtual liquid history of an individual’s nutritional habits, exercise, medication use, sleep patterns and other lifestyle choices. Urine also contains metabolic links to more than 600 human conditions, including some of the major killers such as cancer, diabetes and kidney disease.”

“The next step: The Coon Research Group is designing a toilet that will incorporate a portable mass spectrometer that can recognize the individual and process samples across a variety of subjects.”

“…..we’re pretty sure we can design a toilet that could sample urine….”

“Coon, who runs the National Center for Quantitative Biology of Complex Systems, says the idea of meta-scale urine testing has intrigued him for some time…..”

“With a type of electrode that can be injected as a liquid and then cure in the body, the researchers have laid the groundwork for a new kind of neural interface system.”

“The researchers unveiled their creation, which they’ve dubbed the ‘injectrode‘ .”

“Today’s neuromodulation treatments rely on surgically implanted devices…”

“You can inject the liquid around the nerve, and it cures in the body to create a wired contact….”

“As part of the NIH grant, the researchers are testing a scheme in which they inject the fluid around the nerve, then extrude a thin insulated string of the material back to just underneath the surface of the skin, where they inject more of the composite material.”

“……we’re essentially just routing our connection to this deep nerve back to the surface of the skin.”

“The transformative electronics consist of a special gallium metal structure sealed within a soft silicone material .”

Gallium is an interesting key material. It is biocompatible, has high rigidity in solid form, and melts at a temperature comparable to the skin’s temperature….”

“This universal electronics platform allowed researchers to demonstrate applications such as a multi-purpose personal electronics , a pressure sensor and a neural probe that softens upon implantation into brain tissue.”

Remote Sensing & Stimulation

Laser Photoacoustic Attack

“We propose a new class of signal injection attacks on microphones based on the photoacoustic effect: converting light to sound using a microphone.”

“We show how an attacker can inject arbitrary audio signals to the target microphone by aiming an amplitude-modulated light at the microphone’s aperture.”

“Light Commands is a vulnerability of MEMS microphones that allows attackers to remotely inject inaudible and invisible commands into voice assistants, such as Google assistant, Amazon Alexa, Facebook Portal, and Apple Siri using light.”

“In our paper we demonstrate this effect, successfully using light to inject malicious commands into several voice controlled devices such as smart speakers, tablets, and phones across large distances and through glass windows. “

“….the range obtained by light-based injection is only limited by the attacker’s power budget, optics, and aiming capabilities.”

 

Terahertz Laser

Terahertz waves have frequencies higher than microwaves and lower than infrared and visible light. Where optical light is blocked by most materials, terahertz waves can pass straight through, similar to microwaves.”

“Now researchers from MIT, Harvard University, and the U.S. Army have built a compact device, the size of a shoebox, that produces a terahertz laser whose frequency they can tune over a wide range.”

“By tuning the terahertz frequency, you can choose how far the waves can travel through air before they are absorbed, from meters to kilometers……..”

“…..which gives precise control over who can ‘hear’ your terahertz communications or ‘see’ your terahertz radar……

“You could fit this in your backpack, or in your vehicle for wireless communication or high-resolution imaging………”

Ghost Imaging

“……ghost imaging has been limited to stationary objects because it takes a long time to project the sequence of light patterns onto the object that is necessary to reconstruct an image. This causes images of a moving object to appear blurry.”

“……researchers from the National University of Defense Technology in China describe how they were able to combine information in the blurry images with details about the object’s location to create high quality images of moving objects with ghost imaging.”

“The ghost imaging technique forms an image by correlating a beam that interacts with the object and a reference beam that does not.”

“The imaging technique works with visible light, x-rays and other parts of the electromagnetic spectrum…”

Neuroscience

Making Memories During Sleep

“……..brief, high-frequency oscillations in the hippocampus—brain waves called sharp wave/ripple complexes—convey information by coupling in synchrony with cortical neurons firing rhythmically in what are called spindle oscillations.”

“Promoting this rhythmic coupling can improve memory consolidation.”

“These unusual waves of rhythmic neural activity are especially active during non-REM (dreamless) sleep…….”

“It is believed that this transfer of information between the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex during sleep links the memory of place with its context.”

Cultocracy note :

Technologies of human enhancement have been developed and deployed over previous decades , they are now used extensively in proxy warfare , social engineering and long term political and societal control operations .

Not to mention racketeering and profiteering on a global scale .

The document described below simply seeks to address the legal and ethical aspects of human experimentation in terms of mass usage in the armed forces .

The document does give an insight into the present state of ‘enhancement technologies’ .

The document also gives an insight into the parallel propaganda war currently waged against those who seek to root out the evil which has infiltrated public office . A war of misinformation and disinformation which has now shifted in emphasis and leans more towards the public acceptance of enhancement technologies .

For some , the document may also go some way to answer the modern day issues of ‘Targeting’ and ‘Gang Stalking’ .

Always and forever based on ‘national security’ .

A point , which the public will have to be constantly reminded of .

I am sure many will now be able to gauge the massive scale of human experimentation involved in the plethora of clandestine research programs which have brought us to the point we are at now .

“Neuro corrective” is now a euphemism for crimes against humanity ,

The abuse of the technology is rampant and is primarily used to prop up the current corrupt and rotten systems .

There are also those that perceive the technology as the next logical step in human evolution .

Others see the technology as the only passport out of our Solar System .

The public will have to be spoon fed their own future reality .

Or should that be force fed ?

A few quotes from the report are below .


Super Slaves Soldiers

“The pace of development in cyborg technologies is expected to accelerate over the next 10-15 years , driven by commercial and medical applications .”

state and non-state adversaries will seek to use the US deployment of enhanced warfighters to undermine US interests and stigmatize the DOD as unethical .”

“Mass media is known for the demonization of cyborgs , from Frankenstein to the Terminator .”

“However fiction can also reflect imaginative applications of these technologies , a better informed public that creates and consumes media related to emerging technologies may help the DoD .”

“In their 2014 study “Our Cyborg Future” Wittes & Chong discuss how the prolific use of cell phones and wearable devices bring technology closer to the human race….”

“…….enhanced humans will likely generate huge amounts of data which makes them uniquely susceptible to targeting and surveillance…..”

“Are an enhanced individual’s capability to monitor , record and communicate conversations and images bound by the same legal frameworks that govern wiretapping and privacy ?”

“Is the misuse of a technology on the part of an employee grounds for deactivation ?”

“Can someone be screened to reveal an enhancement that is NOT visible to a body scanner ?

“From a national security perspective adversaries may piggyback surveillance and tracking technologies….”

“……if command and control are hacked , the human/machine will be compromised .”

“A known challenge of these technologies is that their cognitive and physical effects can not be known a priori .”

“….unforeseen side effects can be expected .”

“The remapping of neural networks due to an implant will be vastly different than the muscular implants used to receive optogenetic stimulation .”

“Enhancement technologies may be intimately integrated within the human body and enable decades of exchange information with the human nervous system .”

“Initial deployment would likely be in small specialized teams that are extensively monitored for years during and after military service.”

“Many of the enhancements and implants discussed in this report will require a significantly deepened understanding of the brain .”

“Would enhanced individuals be “throttled” when returning to normal levels ?”

“Will these enhancements be “reverse dual-used” in the civilian population for performance optimization or as “neuro-corrective” measures for certain types of behaviors ?”

“The possibility of post-enhancement mental health disorders must be monitored for many years .”

“At all stages , ethical considerations must be at the forefront of the DoD approach .”
“Under what circumstances , if any , could a service member be compelled to undergo an enhancement that has been fielded (i.e. no longer in the R&D stage) ?”

“…The very definition of asymmetric warfare will be forever altered .”


Cultocracy note :

“At all stages , ethical considerations must be at the forefront of the DoD approach .”

Had to laugh at that one .

“…..stigmatize the DoD as unethical…..”

Rolling around the floor .

No more Rust

Nanotechnology will play a crucial role in the future management of vessel corrosion and biofouling, according to a new maritime study.”

“New products include nanoadditives such as nano-ZnO, nanoalumina, nanosilica.”

At the molecular or atomic scale, the behavior of matter can be very different from what is observed at a macro scale….”

“Researchers of the Faculty of Science of the University of Malaga (UMA) have designed a low-cost T-shirt that generates electricity from the temperature difference between the human body and the surroundings.”

“In a previous study, we were able to create a Wi-Fi antenna from tomato skin and graphene….”

Graphene Roads

“The G+ supermodifier asphalt is being placed into the superficial layers of the road’s surface and will be compared with the traditional road surface.”

“……the supermodifier graphene surface can withstand colder temperatures and be less likely to harden and crack.”

“Further tests and trials are already being planned for graphene roads in the US and Oman.”

Graphene Fitshi…bit

Optical vital sign monitoring is typically performed through photoplethysmography (PPG), which is a powerful, noninvasive technique that operates by sending light of a certain wavelength into the skin, optically detecting the volume change of blood vessels due to the cardiac cycle.”

“Being transparent and flexible, graphene emerges as a viable material for wearable sensors.”

“In particular, GQD (graphene sensitized with semiconducting quantum dots) photodetectors (PDs) offer key benefits such as broadband wavelength sensitivity (300 to 2000 nm).”

“This paper presents a number of flexible prototypes based on seamless integration of GQD PDs into health-tracking wearables, on a mobile phone screen and near-field communication (NFC) circuitry, to monitor vital health signs and the ultraviolet (UV) skin exposure wirelessly. We will first give an outlook of the prototypes and their real-time operation on human skin.”

 


 

Environment

Toxic Nanoparticles

“In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers have shown that nanoparticles may have a bigger impact on the environment than previously thought.”

Nanoparticles (particles that are just a few hundred atoms in size) are ending up in the environment by the ton, but scientists are still unclear about the long-term effects of these super-small nanoparticles.”

“………a common, non-disease-causing bacteria found in the environment, called Shewanella oneidensis MR-1, developed rapid resistance when repeatedly exposed to nanoparticles used in making lithium ion batteries , the rechargeable batteries used in portable electronics and electric vehicles. “

This research is very important to humans because bacteria are prevalent in our lakes and soil where there is a delicate balance of organisms. Other organisms feed on these microbes and there could be a major effect up the food chain or these resistant bacteria could have other effects we can’t even predict right now.”


Cultocracy note :

Rapid chemical resistance could alter gene expression in an organism , leading to physiological changes , which could ultimately impact cognitive behavior .

Perhaps the future is self driving electric cars after all ?

Plastic nanoparticles make fish go Hyper

“The researchers observed that a certain type of nanoparticles leads to stress reactions in the sugar balance, resulting in hyperactivity in the fish larvae.”

“The researchers looked closely at what happened to plastic nanoparticles in larval zebrafish.”

“They saw that the plastic accumulation first causes a decrease in the glucose level of the larvae. This is followed by a hunger signal to the brain, after which the cortisol level rises.”

“At the same time, extra glucose is produced, causing the blood sugar level to rise.”

“All these changes ultimately result in a change in behaviour. It turned out that the larvae are up to 50 percent more active in a standard behaviour test compared to larvae without nanoplastics.”

“…it can be substantiated that a similar effect also occurs in humans, because we know that plastic nanoparticles are present in every tissue of our body…..”

Toxic Silver & Titanium Nanoparticles

“According to a new study, treated wastewater contains titanium and silver nanoparticles that may have adverse impacts on crustaceans, algae, and cells of fish gills….”

“Pristine nanoparticles also act in a different way when compared to the nanoparticles found in the environment. Nanoparticles in the environment are transformed when they interact and form aggregates with other solids, elements, or particles, thus gaining other physicochemical characteristics.”

“The increased toxicity of the transformed nanomaterials observed in the study indicates that the effects cannot be predicted by assessing the effects of nanomaterials in their pristine form…..”

 

Nature Reduces Air Pollution

“Adding plants and trees to the landscapes near factories and other pollution sources could reduce air pollution by an average of 27 percent, new research suggests.”

“Restoring land cover, where possible, to county-level average canopy cover can further remove pollution of SO2, PM10, PM2.5, and NO2 by an average of 27% through interception of particulate matter and absorption of gaseous pollutants.”

“We find such nature-based solutions to be cheaper than technology……..”

“Swarms of nanoparticles which are 15,000 times smaller than a pinhead may be able to deliver vital drugs to the brain……”

“The brain is the only organ to have its own security system: a tightly packed network of blood vessels and barriers that allow the entry of essential nutrients while blocking other potentially harmful substances.”

“……….liposomes can potentially transport life-saving drugs across the barrier.”

“……liposomes are able to penetrate the brain by being transported across the tightly packed endothelial cells by using pouch-like structures known as caveolae.”

Honest Researchers Beat Glyphosate $hills

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) has formally named Sri Lankan scientists Channa Jayasumana and Sarath Gunatilake the recipients of its 2019 Award for Scientific Freedom and Responsibility.”

“The pair had been named the recipients in February for their work linking glyphosate, the main chemical in the weed killer Roundup, to chronic kidney disease, but the decision was suspended before the award ceremony over concerns raised by other scientists.”

“Jayasumana said at the time he suspected there had been pressure from the agrochemical lobby to undermine their research.”

“He told Mongabay that the lengthy peer review ordered by the AAAS following the suspension had vindicated his and Gunatilake’s work and showed that “science has prevailed.” “

“Gunatilake and Jayasumana received death threats, and twelve scientists who had obtained industry-funded grants filed a research misconduct complaint against Gunatilake.”

Cuban Diplomats – Trauma and Fear


Cultocracy note :

An update to the Cuban diplomat attack story , or as it is now known in deep state circles , “I think we are losing the war………Nobody can hide from the truth……” .

Yet another article proposes yet another theory for ‘Havana Syndrome’ .

On this occasion an article in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine speculates that the diplomats suffered symptoms akin to shell shock and they were in fact showing symptoms of prolonged fear and trauma .

Not too far from the truth .

Although the author of the paper , one Robert Bartholomew , a ‘leading sociologist and an expert in neurodegenerative diseases’ , does authoritatively state the following :

“What is the more likely, that the diplomats were the target of a mysterious new weapon for which there is no concrete evidence, or they were suffering from psychogenic symptoms generated by stress? The evidence overwhelmingly points to the latter.”

“There have been four separate studies of ‘Havana Syndrome’ to date. Each have critical design flaws including the use of inappropriate controls, inflated conclusions, and a lack of evidence for exposure to an energy source or toxin….”

“None adequately test the hypotheses they propose, while promoting exotic explanations that are not supported by the facts….”

Hmmmmm……..

……..Exotic explanations………Not supported by the facts……..

So there we have it , highly trained , psychologically and psychometrically screened Intelligence Analy….. Cuban diplomats are all crazy , delusional lunatics suffering from some form of collective insanity and maladaptive madness .

Which paradoxically may be true .

It appears that all and sundry are willingly jumping on the bandwagon and throwing in their tuppence .

Anybody would think that Bartholomew had a book or two to sell……..

I can’t wait for the next chapter in this ongoing saga .

5 Insane Quotes From Boris Johnson’s Bizarre UN Speech About Tech

“You may keep secrets from your friends, from your parents, your children, your doctor – even your personal trainer – but it takes real effort to conceal your thoughts from Google.”

“AI, what will it mean? Helpful robots washing and caring for an ageing population, or pink-eyed terminators sent back from the future to cull the human race?”

“In the future, voice connectivity will be in every room and almost every object: your mattress will monitor your nightmares; your fridge will beep for more cheese, your front door will sweep wide the moment you approach, like some silent butler.”


Cultocracy note :

Back again to the recent speech UK PM Boris ‘Bizarre’ Johnson delivered at the UN , a few quotes from Boris are below , they suggest that he or at least his team are much more informed than most .

Or maybe team BoJo have been reading this blog .

Or maybe BoJo is simply a cog in The Machine .


BoJo note on 5G & IoT :

“This technology (5G IoT) can be used to keep every citizen under round the clock surveillence…..”

“A giant dark thundercloud waiting to burst…..”

“We are ourselves becoming a resource , click by click , tap by tap…….”

“How can these algorithms be trusted with our lives……..”

“Digital authoritarianism is an emerging reality……”

“Will nanotechnology help us to beat disease or will it leave tiny robots to replicate in the crevice of our souls……”

Genetics


Cultocracy note :

A glimpse into the world of genetic engineering reveals a bull without horns .

I wonder what animals are next ?


Bull without Horns

“In promising news for dairy farmers, researchers have bred what are likely the first offspring from a genome-edited bull. The calves were born without horns, a trait that occurs naturally in cattle but that was given to their father through previous DNA-editing research.”

 

Bacteria produces Hallicinogen

“Scientists have transformed a common bacterial cell into a psychedelic “drug factory” capable of pumping out copious quantities of psilocybin, the chemical famously found in “magic mushrooms,” according to a new study.”

“We are taking the DNA from the mushroom that encodes its ability to make this product and putting it in E. coli,”

“The scientists assert that their results provide compelling evidence that psilocybin could be produced on an industrial scale for use in psychiatric medications.”

 

Glyphosate causes Cancer

New South Wales farmer, Ross Wild, 67, has used Roundup on his mixed farming property in Moama since its introduction in Australia in 1976.”

“Last year, Mr Wild was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and he claims long-term exposure to Roundup’s active ingredient, glyphosate, is to blame.”

 

Hypomania = Death

“A team led by genetics researchers from Harvard Medical School has discovered that a protein named REST helps you live longer by damping down activity in the brain.”

“REST has a reputation as an all-purpose brain protectant. It defends neurons against oxidative stress, an all-of-body inflammatory response triggered by things such as smoking, obesity, and pollution. It can also fend off the amyloid that forms brain plaques in Alzheimer’s.”

“The results were well and truly in – it looks like neural activity really is a regulator of the lifespan.”

 


Cultocracy note :

Regarding brain activity and longevity .

It logically follows that if you required a broad range soft kill method for the deplorables and detestables and the man (or woman) who knows too much then you could simply utilize an untraceable method to crank up the neural activity of a human target .

Perhaps whilst the human target is sleeping or confined in a small space .

Perhaps something similar to a jail cell .


 


 

Quantum Computing & Communications


Cultocracy note :

Quantum supremacy will herald a new phase in the design of nanotechnology materials , materials that are simply too complex to model using traditional computing systems .

At the nano scale quantum effects dominate .

Furthermore , there are those that believe quantum effects are essential for human consciousness , quantum effects which cannot be replicated in traditional computing architecture .

It therefore follows that if you would wish to create a truly intelligent and conscious artificial system then you would require a quantum computer .

Not at all surprising that NASA was involved .


Quantum Supremacy

Quantum processors have thus reached the regime of quantum supremacy. We expect that their computational power will continue to grow at a double-exponential rate……”

“Back in 2015, IARPA, an organization within the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, launched a competition to see which individuals or teams were best at predicting how future geopolitical events would unfold.”

“……….there really are people who are better at predicting the future than others, sometimes to an incredible degree…….”

“Unfortunately, neither IARPA, GJP, nor any other source we came across while researching this topic, gave any clear advice regarding how to better improve one’s precognitive abilities.”

“Do you think you may be one of these especially predictive people? Tell us about the kind of future you foresee for humanity .”

AI – Artificial Intelligence


Cultocracy note :

Large UK based global defence contractors and their affiliated UK intelligence & surveillance organizations are largely subcontracted to the US military corporate complex , which in turn is subcontracted to the global corporate world and city based global financial overlords .

A closed loop of parasitical profiteering and global corruption is thus formed , each organization feeding from the other .

All are ultimately feeding from the wider global taxpaying population .

Heads they win , tails you lose .

Ergo the race for AI requires that UK based contractors have access to as much electronic data as possible .

Your data .

You are now a resource .

Some more than others .


China dominates AI in Europe

“Locked for years in digital alienation, the EU has set a new standard on data protection and privacy, wrestling back some control from Silicon Valley.

“But with the coming of age of AI-based applications, Chinese firms strive in turn for a piece of the colony. “

China is being described, in Western media, as an unstoppable force touched by destiny to ineluctably become the world- supreme A.I. omni-power .”

 


Cultocracy note :

As always , the keyword is control .

The claim that Facebook is introducing end to end encryption is laughable and is intended purely to appease privacy conscious Facebook users and maintain market share .

When FVEY want a backdoor , they get a backdoor .

To further develop militarized AI systems the FVEY securocrats require unrestricted access to all of your electronic data .

There are a number of ongoing experimental programs of subtle societal manipulation and control that will be slowed down significantly in the face of true end to end data encryption .

The ability to action data in near real-time is crucial to the development of these programs .

The public is being softened up , again .

The fact that the UK establishment funds and protects a plethora of terrorist organizations and pedophiles is lost in the message , the time honored implication being that you are a terrorist or pedophile unless you support establishment policy .

It should be noted that the EU has been trying to protect your data .

There are those in Europe who already know what your data is being used for .

France Rolls Out New Facial Recognition Technology

“In a plan that sounds eerily similar to China’s ‘social credit score’ system, Macron and the French Interior Ministry are pushing ahead plans to launch a national facial-recognition program, arguing that it “will make the state more efficient.” “

We’re heading into mass usage of facial recognition. (There’s) little interest in the importance of consent and choice.”

“Opponents of the system say users must choose to participate, or the system will be in violation of Europe’s new data privacy regulations, the GDPR.”

The UK – the home of ‘Big Brother‘ – has reportedly contracted with Singapore to learn more about facial recognition technology and discuss implementing it.”


Cultocracy note :

The UK establishment has a fascination with their former son , Singapore .

Ostensibly a ‘democratic’ system controlled by a single family and their cadre of corrupt cronies , a bit like the UK , but better .

I sometimes imagine Singapore as a potential testing ground for the syndicate .

Well , where safer to stash your ill gotten gains than your own home , well , somebody else’s actually .


 

Predicting Terror

“Data scientist have developed a model that utilizes publicly available data to accurately predict how lethal a terror organization will become in the future based on only its first 10 attacks.”

The U.S. government spends half a trillion dollars annually to research and combat terrorism.”

From 2000 to 2015, 61 new terror groups emerged each year, on average, leading to an 800% increase in global terror attacks, according to data from GTD.”


Cultocracy note :

Hmmmm……..It appears that there has been a massive increase in ‘terror groups’ since the initiation of the ‘War on Terror‘ .

Purely coincidental I’m sure .

5G is currently at the apex of hype and hyperbole and is causing a bit of a ‘buzz’ .

Recent ‘news’ suggests that 5G has the power to boost the moral of your local sports team .

Probably true to a certain extent , but only if the millionaire who owns Intel and Apple shares becomes a future 5G billionaire and buys your local team and injects a large amount of cash .

Companies are queuing up to cash in on the bonanza , hoping that every man and his dog buys the next 5G ‘thing’ , if only because the man or dog next to him has it .

As many commentators have suggested , the global 5G steamroller style rollout could have a far greater detrimental effect on the natural environment than ‘global warming’ .

There are signs of resistance from an increasingly concerned and educated public .

Many commentators are also starting to wonder why the negative social and environmental effects of technologies such as 5G , gene editing , GM crops , nanoparticle pollution etc……Are rarely mentioned in the mainstream media ?

It should be noted that 5G could also be made a scapegoat for militarized systems that are already in place , or should that be ‘already in space’ .

Are you ready for your ‘upgrade’ ?


If the Swiss are worried then we should all be worried

“The protesters, many carrying placards, gathered in front of the Swiss parliament building yesterday in a bid to stop the construction of more 5G-compatible antennae.”

“……….critics in Switzerland argue that the electromagnetic radiation the new system emits poses unprecedented health and environmental risks compared to previous generations of mobile technology.”

“The Swiss Federation of Doctors (FMH) has also argued for a cautious approach to the new technology.”

 

Swiss 5G Rollout

“As soon as the antennas were installed, several residents and entire families in the heart of Geneva reported similar unusual symptoms of loud ringing in the ear, intense headaches, unbearable earaches, insomnia, chest pain, fatigue and not feeling well in the house.”

Are Secret Human Experiments Advancing Brain Chip Tech?

A doctor from Peru claims that recent advancements in brain chip technology could be due to “secret, forced, and illicit human experimentation” by a consortium of transnational tech companies and governments operating outside of the law.”

“A 2016 paper published in the Egyptian Journal of Internal Medicine warned that “secret, forced, and illicit human experimentation” could be happening in Latin America, where poverty stricken masses are routinely recruited for medical trials.”

“A former DoD official warned in 2006 that only the most ruthless nation will win the new arms race for human enhancement.”

“In the book, Ikle warned that only the most ruthless nation would win the arms race for brain chips and human augmentation because advancements in the technology could only come from “intrusive experiments on living human brains.” ”

Thought Control

“Researchers from the Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) and School of Medicine (SOM) have, for the first time, demonstrated simultaneous control of two of the world’s most advanced prosthetic limbs through a brain-machine interface. “

“Dr. Stan Anderson’s team at Johns Hopkins implanted intracortical microelectrode array sensors on both sides of a patient’s brain, in the regions that control movement and touch sensation.”

“These breakthroughs are the latest developments in Revolutionizing Prosthetics (RP), a program launched by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency…..”

“In addition to developing the MPL, program researchers have been exploring the use of neural signals to enable “real time” control of prosthetic and intelligent systems.”

Brain Computer Interface – BCI


Cultocracy note :

In an effort to maintain full spectrum supremacy , the battle for your mind is now public news .

Previous clandestine and frequently horrific research on human guinea pigs is now being played out in the public spotlight in a cynical and sinister new paradigm .

First the wider scientific community must be blinkered , assuaged and appeased that the research is for the benefit of mankind , large research grants and ethical immunity will certainly help ‘oil the wheels’ in this respect .

This will lead to an influx of previously reticent research scientists engaged in the myriad of interlinked disciplines .

Parallel research is also being subcontracted to seemingly private MIC affiliated organizations .

All packaged in a friendly fluffy PR style wrapper .

The ‘War on Terror’ has proved to be extremely convenient on a wide variety of levels .

Military Mind Reading

“……the Next-generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology Program, or N³, a $104 million effort launched this year by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA.”

“While Grover’s team is manipulating electrical and ultrasound signals, other teams use optical or magnetic techniques. If any of these approaches succeed, the results will be transformative.”

Brain-computer interfaces, or BCIs, have been used to help people with quadriplegia regain limited control over their bodies, and to enable veterans who lost limbs in Iraq and Afghanistan….”

“Both invasive and noninvasive techniques for reading from the brain have advanced since then.”

“So too have devices that stimulate the brain with electrical signals to treat conditions such as epilepsy.”

“Meanwhile, at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL), another N³ team is using a completely different approach: near-infrared light. “

“But near-infrared light can travel through bone. Blodgett’s team fires low-powered infrared lasers through the skull and then measures how the light from those lasers is scattered. He hopes this will let them infer what neural activity is taking place.”

“Gaurav Sharma is developing a new type of nanoparticle that can cross the blood-brain barrier.”

“The nanoparticle has a magnetically sensitive core……these nanoparticles are subjected to a magnetic field which then generates a small current…….electric currents can be converted to magnetic fields so the signals can be read.”

“Other N³ teams are using various combinations of light, electric, magnetic, and ultrasound waves to get signals in and out of the brain.”

Pentagon and corporations like Facebook, which are also developing BCIs, are to address the host of ethical, legal, and social questions a noninvasive BCI gives rise to.”

Mind Control – Dream or Nightmare

Mind reading may sound like a sci-fi dream, but it’s Maryam Shanechi’s day job.”

“Now, Shanechi is forging into a new frontier — mind control. She’s on a mission to create brain-machine interfaces that not only eavesdrop on cells, but also stimulate them to alter mood.”

“This mental manipulation may one day offer a better treatment to millions of patients with psychiatric disorders, like anxiety or depression, who don’t respond to existing therapies. “

Shanechi arrived on the neuroscience scene almost by accident.”

“Unlike typical deep-brain stimulation that has to be manually adjusted, these devices would monitor a patient’s symptoms and adjust stimulation automatically.”

What I really enjoy,” she says, “is to see a mathematical concept making its way toward making a difference in people’s lives.”

Cultocracy note :

Predictable news this month from the robotics front implies further automation in the near future with automatons able to carry out many , if not all , human jobs .

Which in turn implies potential future social and societal issues .

“A gardening robot has been developed that can self-navigate and automatically prune roses and trim bushes.”

“The battery powered device is pre-programmed with a rough outline of a garden to aid navigation. Data captured by the robot’s 3-D cameras enable it to perform specific tasks.”

“Prototype robots could be used to maintain communal green spaces, support farmers and help people with mobility issues tend their gardens, researchers say.”

“To investigate further, Roberts’s team used a technique called optogenetics to manipulate neural activity at the connections, or synapses, between NIf and HVC neurons. This involves inserting genes into neurons that allow them to be controlled by light, then using small fibreoptic cables to shine light onto the selected brain area.”

Applying such techniques in humans is a long way off……”

“Scientists at the Plastic Health Summit taking place in Amsterdam are revealing groundbreaking research on micro- and nanoplastics, warning of their potentially deadly effects on human immune cells

“….the University Medical Centre (UMC) Utrecht indicates immune cells that recognise and attack microplastics die quickly as a result of the contact.”

PFAS, or per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, refers to a class of chemicals used abundantly in common household items to make objects water or fire resistant.”

PFASs are commonly detected in foods and food-contact materials (FCMs), including fast food packaging and microwave popcorn bags.”

“It’s unclear at what threshold PFAS begins to take a toll on human health. A number of studies have linked the chemical to cancer, thyroid disorders, hormonal changes, and weight gain.”

“………animal studies have shown PFAS exposure consistently results in damage to liver, kidneys, and the immune system.”

“At many times throughout history, materials and chemicals like asbestos or DDT have not been tested thoroughly and have caused big problems in our environment….”

“This research is very important to humans because bacteria are prevalent in our lakes and soil where there is a delicate balance of organisms. Other organisms feed on these microbes and there could be a major effect up the food chain……”

 

Nanoparticles & Cortisol

“The researchers observed that a certain type of nanoparticles leads to stress reactions in the sugar balance, resulting in hyperactivity in the fish larvae.”

“They saw that the plastic accumulation first causes a decrease in the glucose level of the larvae. This is followed by a hunger signal to the brain, after which the cortisol level rises. At the same time, extra glucose is produced, causing the blood sugar level to rise.”

“But it can be substantiated that a similar effect also occurs in humans, because we know that plastic nanoparticles are present in every tissue of our body……..”

brain-advert-old


Cultocracy introduction :

The title of the following introductory article is self explanatory .

The abuse and misuse of current neurotechnology is widespread .

As always , the keyword is control .


The future of mind control

“……..neurotechnology is on the cusp of a major renaissance.”

The next frontier is really the merging of human cognition with machines,”

“He and Lieber see mesh electronics as the foundation for those machines, a way to design personalized electronic treatment for just about anything related to the brain.”

“Everything manifests in the brain fundamentally. Everything. All your thoughts, your perceptions, any type of disease,”

“Scientists can pinpoint the general areas of the brain where decision-making, learning, and emotions originate, but tracing behaviors to specific neurons is still a challenge.”

“Lieber’s mesh electronics provoke almost no immune response. With close, long-term proximity to the same neurons, the implants can collect robust data on how individual neurons communicate over time or, in the case of neurological disorders, fail to communicate. Eventually, such technology could track how specific neural subtypes talk, too, all of which could lead to a cleaner, more precise map of the brain’s communication network.”

“With higher resolution targets, future electrodes can act with greater precision, eliminating unwanted side effects.”

“In time, they could act like neural substitutes……”

“Such power demands intense ethical scrutiny. For people struggling to combat addiction or obsessive-compulsive disorder, an external pulse regulator could significantly improve their quality of life. But, companies that operate those regulators could access their client’s most personal data–their thoughts. And, if enhanced learning and memory are for sale, who gets to buy a better brain? “One does need to be a little careful about the ethics involved if you’re trying to make a superhuman,” Lieber said.

“Being able to help people is much more important to me at this time.”

Clandestine military research projects have sought to create a disposable army of ‘superhuman‘ assets for decades .

At what point does an experimental human subject cease to be human ?

Perhaps we should look at the decision makers in our respective democracies to find the answer .


China leading controversial genetic research

“If you want to conduct groundbreaking but contentious biological research, go to China.”

“Yet if China is fast becoming the world capital of controversial science, it is not alone in producing it. More babies produced using the “CRISPR” gene-editing technology are now planned by a scientist in Russia, where another researcher is also hoping to conduct the world’s first human head transplant. And Japan has recently lifted its own ban on human-animal hybrids.”

Scientists reveal epigenetic features of the brain

“The brain’s prefrontal cortex, which gives us our ability to solve problems and plan ahead, contains billions of cells.”

“Scientists have known that much of this diversity results from epigenetics…”

“The structure of chromosomes acts as a sort of cellular fingerprint: although different cell types have the same sequence of DNA, they have different chromosome structures to organize that DNA.”

“At the same time, chemical (epigenetic) modifications to DNA itself—such as the addition of methyl groups to a strand of DNA—also control the timing and levels of gene expression. When a methyl group is tacked onto a bit of DNA, a gene is typically blocked from being expressed.”

Synthetic ion channels

DNA-based, self-assembled nanostructures are promising building blocks for new kinds of micro- and nanodevices for biomedical and environmental applications. “

Pickering emulsions (Microcapsules formed by the assembly of colloidal particles at the interface of emulsion droplets) or colloidosomes, also have potential for many biotechnologically useful applications. “

“……a new type of Pickering emulsion with the added functionality of ion channels opens up new routes to designing artificial cells and molecular robots.”

“Such systems could eventually be used to develop artificial neural networks mimicking the way the human brain works. “

 

Magnetically manipulated biological cells

“If scientists could give living cells magnetic properties, they could perhaps manipulate cellular activities with external magnetic fields.”

“Now, researchers reporting in ACS’ Nano Letters have engineered genetically encoded protein crystals that can generate magnetic forces many times stronger than those already reported. “

“To make the new crystals, the researchers fused genes encoding ferritin and Inkabox-PAK4cat and expressed the new protein in human cells……”

Holy Grail #2

“What scientists have come to realise, he told Good Health, is that ‘the driver of most of the diseases that we experience in old age’ is the ageing of the cells.”

“So, if we can target the mechanisms, we may be able to not only cure one disease, but all the different diseases together,’ he says. ‘That’s the goal.”

 


 

Quantum Computing & Communications

Hall Effect to achieve one-way radio transmission

“Researchers have replicated one of the most well-known electromagnetic effects in physics, the Hall Effect, using radio waves (photons) instead of electric current (electrons). “

The Hall Effect, discovered in 1879 by Edwin Hall, occurs because of the interaction between charged particles and electromagnetic fields.”

“Their research could be used to produce new devices that protect sources of radio waves from potentially harmful interference, or that help ensure sensitive quantum mechanical measurements are accurate.”

AI


Cultocracy note :

An article this month from the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is titled ‘The Global Expansion of AI Surveillance’ .

As stated on the tin , the article explores the expansion of AI based surveillance systems , a quote from the article states :

‘The spread of AI surveillance continues unabated . Its use by repressive regimes to engineer crackdowns against targeted populations has already sounded alarm bells.’

Too true .

It should be noted that the article is slightly biased , the word ‘China’ is mentioned 55 times .

As such I have abridged and simplified the report into a much more concise and digestible format :

“It’s the Chinese……The Chinese I tell ya………The bloody Chinese………Huawei and the Chinese……Run for the hills……The Chinese are comin’……… Aaaaarrrgggghhhhhh……”

It should also be noted that some commentators suggest that the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace is an oxymoron .

5G & Internet of Things (IoT)


Cultocracy note :

5G and the IOT are like peas in a pod . A new era of automation is promised with the ability to connect any gadget or gizmo to the internet .

No doubt there is a much darker side to the technology .

All IOT ‘things’ will have to be powered , a future is envisaged where IoT ‘things’ are powered entirely by ambient electromagnetic waves .


 

Indoor solar power

“……the scientists from Linköping University and the Chinese Academy of Sciences said these solar cells are optimised to convert ambient indoor light into electricity. While in low amounts, it should be enough to power millions of IoT products for the home market.”

 

Turning a handheld smartphone into a fluorescence microscope

“Researchers in the U.S. and China have developed a method to transform a smartphone into a fluorescence microscope. The handheld smartphone-fluorescence microscope (HSFM) device allows complex biomedical analyses both rapidly and inexpensively.”

“The low-cost, experimental setup allowed them to observe and count cells, monitor the expression of fluorescently tagged genes and distinguish between normal tissues and tumors.”

 

Drones, Vibrators, and Kids’ Toys Vulnerable to Hacking

“In one scenario, his team showed that it’s possible to hack a children’s toy, called CogniToys Dino. In this case, an attacker can access sensitive information the child has shared with the toy, or even communicate with the child through the toy.”

“In another series of experiments, the researchers explored ways to hack vibrators. Vibrators that can be controlled remotely by apps are growing in popularity, and can be used, for example, between couples in long-distance relationships.”

“………the researchers found unencrypted information that allows a hacker to gain the username and password of a trusted partner—which could allow a hacker to impersonate an intimate partner and control the vibrator remotely.”

 

Nanowire converts microwaves to electricity

“In preparation for the commencement of the true IoT era, energy harvesting technologies, which transform the minute sources of energy in the surrounding environment into electricity, have come under the spotlight in recent years….”

“Equipment used in generating electricity from ambient radio waves consists of a radio wave power generating element, which includes an antenna for collecting radio waves and a rectifying element (diode) that rectifies the radio waves.”

“With this technology, microwaves with a power level of 100 nanowatts (nW) can be converted to electricity.”

Synthetic Telepathy

Neural interfaces that link human brains to computers using artificial intelligence will allow people to read other people’s thoughts, according to leading scientists.”

“A new report by the Royal Society outlines the benefits of such technology but warns that there could be severe risks if it falls into the wrong hands.”

“More futuristic applications are expected to follow, such as brain implants that allow people to virtually taste, smell and see without actually physically experiencing the sensation.”

“The report calls on the (UK) government to launch a national investigation into this emerging field in order to shape the development of the technology.”

Brain-machine interface could help the disabled control a wheelchair

“Combining new classes of nanomembrane electrodes with flexible electronics and a deep learning algorithm could help disabled people wirelessly control an electric wheelchair, interact with a computer or operate a small robotic vehicle without donning a bulky hair-electrode cap or contending with wires.”

“Beyond the sensing requirements, detecting and analyzing steady-state virtually evoked potentials (SSVEP) signals have been challenging because of the low signal amplitude, which is in the range of tens of micro-volts, similar to electrical noise in the body. Researchers also must deal with variation in human brains.”

“This EEG monitoring system has the potential to finally allow scientists to monitor human neural activity in a relatively unobtrusive way as subjects go about their lives,”

Synthetic Biology

Chameleon Skin

“Scientists in the field of photonic crystals have been working for a long time to try to create color-changing smart skins for a range of potential applications, such as camouflage, chemical sensing and anti-counterfeiting tags, “

“Although the particles themselves are colorless, the precise spacing between them allows certain light waves to pass through them while rejecting others. The visible colors produced change depending on factors such as lighting conditions or shifts in the distance between the particles. The iridescence of some butterfly wings and the feathers of peacocks are among many other examples of photonic crystals in nature.”

“To mimic chameleons and create an artificial smart skin, scientists have experimented with embedding photonic crystal arrays into flexible, water-containing polymers, or hydrogels.”

 

3D Printed Miniature Human Heart

“It’s the closest anyone has gotten to producing a fully functioning heart through 3D bioprinting, according to the company.”

“The Company developed a proprietary bioink using a very specific composition of different extracellular matrix compounds that closely replicate the properties of the mammalian heart. Further, it has developed a novel and unique bioprinting algorithm……..”

 

Whole Body Network

“Here, lacings of stretchable optical fibers distributed throughout 3D-printed elastomer frameworks created a cointegrated body, sensing, and communication network. “

“By mimicking the inherent link between sensory and motor signals in animals, which are used not only for action execution but also for action “selection” , we may be able to use OL to simplify controls and electronics and improve the efficiency of robots.”

 


 

Materials

Spider silk to replace plastic

“The researchers created a truly new bio-based material by gluing together wood cellulose fibres and the silk protein found in spider web threads. The result is a very firm and resilient material which could be used in the future as a possible replacement for plastic……”

 

Liquid Antenna to Steer Radio Beams

“Being able to focus the energy of a radio signal towards a given receiver means you can increase the range and efficiency of transmissions. If you know the location of the receiver, and are sure that it’s going to stay put, you can simply use an antenna that is shaped to emit energy mostly in one direction and point it.”

Beam-steering lets you adjust the focus of antenna…It involves adjusting the relative phases of a set of radio waves at the antenna: these waves interfere constructively and destructively, cancelling out in unwanted directions and reinforcing the signal in the direction you want to send it.”

“Different beam patterns, or states, are also possible—for example, you might want a broader beam if you are sending the same signal to multiple receivers in a given direction, or a tighter beam if you are talking to just one.”

“The new antenna’s operating range of 334 MHz to 488 MHz makes it a promising candidate for very-high frequency applications such as IoT and maritime applications”

“In detail, the experimental demonstration involves heterodyne detection, in which two signals are combined, or mixed, using graphene.”

 


 

Graphene

Graphene and THz astronomy

Graphene might be the only known material that remains an excellent conductor of electricity/heat even when having, effectively, no electrons. We have reached a near zero-electron scenario in graphene, also called Dirac point, by assembling electron-accepting molecules on its surface. Our results show that graphene is an exceptionally good material for THz heterodyne detection when doped to the Dirac point

BRAIN Initiative develops new brain mapping tool

“University of California, Irvine, School of Medicine, were awarded a three-year, $4.3 million Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative grant. Working together with a “dream team” of US and Chinese scientists, they will lead the development of a new brain mapping tool for neuroscience research.”

“The development of trans-synaptic viral tracers is an important component of the BRAIN Initiative,”

“……recombinant H129 viral vectors will lead to transformative tools for neuroscience research………..”

“Current versions of genetically modified H129 herpesviruses are limited primarily by high virulence and toxicity. We have a comprehensive plan to reduce the toxicity and also to enhance signal outputs and generate variants carrying different functional payloads. Ultimately, we will be able to create a new set of safe, effective and validated anterograde-directed viral vectors.”
