Appendix 2: Electrical Technology and Human Evolution
The rhythm of life has evolved at an even tempo for epochs. We live in a matrix of oscillating fields; the tiniest fluctuations in one interlocked field carry over perturbation into others. Many times per second, pulses travel completely around the world between our planet's surface and the ionosphere sending coordinating signals to all organisms. These signals couple us to the global electrostatic field. Named for their discoverer, these Schumann Resonances (SR) provide the orchestrating pulse for life on our planet.
We all march to the cadence of this cosmic drummer -- our planetary heartbeat, which sets the tempo for health and well-being. Damaging this planetary pacemaker could spell doom for life as we know it. In the name of progress and defense, this pacemaker is now threatened, while vast amounts of public money are spent on this exploitation. Even more tax funds are allocated to implement the ill-conceived "Star Wars" missile defense, and the energy beam Project HAARP.
“What is clear is that part of the money voted to Bush’s Star Wars plan will be used for research into space-based lasers,” the Independent reported. “These, we are told, will be used to shoot down the missiles fired in anger by ‘rogue states.’ But they will, inevitably, evolve into weapons aimed at America’s enemies from space. U.S. Space Command doesn’t even bother to hide this fact. The most chilling illustration in Vision 2020 is of such a space-based laser firing a beam of energy at the earth.”
"What the Russians are worried about (as they’re trying to explain in badly translated prose from Moscow’s Interfax News Agency) are U.S. plans to begin large-scale scientific experiments using the Alaska-based HAARP in 2003. Ninety Russian deputies signed the appeal against the HAARP program, charging that the experiments “would create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines and have a negative impact on the mental health of people populating entire regions.” (Fitrakis, 2002)
The ionosphere shields us from deadly radiation from the sun and deep space. Holes are now being routinely punched in this insulating blanket by high-frequency radio waves, and may accidentally tear open the fragile cocoon of human and planetary evolution. Dire consequences could be as devastating as the failure of an individual's pacemaker. First, we will give an overview, then define and describe some terms used here in greater detail deeper in the article.
This environmental rhythm -- the fundamental driving system for all life on our small blue planet -- is jeopardized by human manipulations of the ionosphere, such as project HAARP. It is dangerous to fool with Mother Nature as the results of ozone depletion and other ecological calamities have shown. It might be easy to see that such survival risks don't balance alleged benefits, but targeted research on potential problem areas has been virtually non-existent.
Ample anthropological evidence shows that humans have intuitively synchronized with the planetary resonance throughout human history and back into the mists of time. Tonalities. Mead and Bateson reported a technique transmitted to Balinese children which this culture intuitively employed to harmonize their communities. They discovered that the parents encouraged their children to vibrate parts of their body, harmonizing to the SR cycle. And you can do the same thing; you may already do it unconsciously.
If you sit in a chair and move your foot so that it's resting on the ball of the foot, and you get it at the right angle, your whole leg will start to vibrate. It goes into an oscillation. That oscillation is so close to the SR cycle as to be virtually the same. And that's what Balinese parents encouraged their children to do. It helps them go into trance.
If one looks into a classroom of children, one will notice that the children are never sitting still. Teachers and parents become annoyed, constantly telling them to "Sit still!" They are constantly bouncing their legs; and moving their arms. This may be a natural way in which our body energizes itself. And this may even be the heart and soul of most ceremonial experiences. The body will begin to move, and hands begin to flutter. When one look at the hands of a healer, they are typically fluttering. And if one looks at the older ceremonial practices, where there is less constraint on what they should or should not do, the whole body is usually shaking, fluttering, or in constant motion.
And you'll see this in the Kalahari Bushmen healing dance, where someone is filled with life energy. Every part of their body becomes aroused, hot, and begins shaking. If they grab another person and hug them, that person also begins shaking and may turn and grab someone else. One by one, everyone begins literally vibrate with this pulsing energy. However, by the time it gets to our culture or other contemporary cultures (like Chinese medicine), this phenomena becomes very constrained and expresses through more subtle practice, such as "therapeutic entrainment."
Can anybody intentionally induce this healing/energizing frequency? Yes, certainly. There are all the kinds of little tricks and techniques -- because there is not just one right way. It is a very natural capacity our bodies are intuitively capable of effecting, vibrating with the pulse of life itself. The purpose of this movement is to get outside the limitations and constraints of isolated individual mind and connect with something greater. It has any number of names but this “greater Mind” links us to one another and to nature as a whole. (Keeney, 1997)
C.M. Anderson, M.D. (1998) of Harvard describes a commonly experienced yet little-understood phenomenon he calls the Persistent Oscillatory Sound. Many people notice this internally-generated 'sound,' particularly when ill or dehydrated, as it seems to become "louder." It sounds like an insect hum. Anderson links it, as well as the REM or dream state and Post-traumatic stress syndrome (PTDS) to the normal alpha 10Hz rhythmicity, as cited by I. Miller (2001):
"Anderson speaks of the disturbing effect of lights and sounds, which might result from loss of normal global habituation due to RF destabilization, resulting in fear and/or rage. Again, trauma and drug abuse history is strongly associated with asymmetric hemispheric function. Temporal lobe structures such as the hippocampus and amygdala are particularly sensitive to the effects of child abuse and trauma.
"Anderson conjectures the oscillatory sound could indicate rapid shifting or cycling of attentional resources between the left and right hemispheres, downshifting the normally constant 10 Hz rhythmicity of the olivocerebellar system. This oscillatory auditory effect may function as an auditory driver. The downshift effect may indicate possible flooding of the left hemisphere by material from the uninhibited right which takes over primary conscious focus. This sets the stage, along with phasic fluctuations of the S-Net and uninhibited PGO, for the sudden onset of the SOC state and the waking dream period.
"Anderson alludes to “waking dreams as a healing journey through the fractal hyperspace of emotionally indexed childhood memories.” He asserts that “the basolateral amygdala (BLA) is a critical neural substrate of the waking dream stage as fractal neural bursting in this subcortical cortex-like structure may represent access points in a fractal hyperspace of emotionally indexed memories.”
“The effects of early trauma on the development of the amygdala and other temporal lobe structures may interfere with its normal bilateral function during REM-sleep mediated consolidation of emotionally significant events. The recall of traumatic childhood experiences in adults, due to the immaturity of limbic structures at the time of trauma, may require electrical stimulation or intensive PGO-like activity present during the oneiric state. Habitual disruption of normal sleep processes by stress associated with combat, bereavement, divorce, child abuse, neglect or chronic drug abuse interferes with the natural restorative function of phasic REM processes.”litated through the brain's web of inhibitory and excitatory feedback networks.
Like sound waves, the brain has its own set of vibrations it uses to communicate with itself and the rest of the body; EEG equipment distinguishes these waves by measuring the speed with which neurons fire in cycles per second. At their boundaries these waves can overlap somewhat, merging seamlessly into one another, so different researchers may give slightly different readings for the range of cycles per second. Rate of cycling determines the type of activity, kindling wave after wave over the whole surface of the brain, by igniting more neurons.
BETA waves (14 cycles per second and above) dominate our normal waking state of consciousness when attention is directed towards cognitive tasks and the outside world. Beta waves range between 13-40 Hz. Gamma (above 30 Hz) represents hyperarousal. The Beta wave is associated with peak concentration, heightened alertness and visual acuity. Nobel Prize winner, Sir Francis Crick and other scientists believe that the 40Hz beta frequency may be key to the act of cognition.
ALPHA waves (7-13 cycles per second) are present during dreaming and light meditation when the eyes are closed. As more and more neurons are requited to this frequency, alpha waves cycle globally across the whole cortex. This induces of deep relaxation, but not quite meditation. In Alpha, we begin to access the wealth of creativity that lies just below our conscious awareness. It is the gateway, the entry point that leads into deeper states of consciousness. Alpha is also the home of the window frequency known as the Schumann Resonance, which is the resonant frequency of the earth's electromagnetic field. SR waves propagate with little attenuation around the planet. When we intentionally generate alpha waves and go into resonance with that earthy frequency, we naturally feel better, refreshed, in tune, in synch. It is, in fact, environmental synchronization.
THETA waves (4-7 cycles per second) occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in the deepest state of mediation (body asleep/mind awake). The optimum level for deep thought is this realm of Theta. In Theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on the mindscape, internally originating signals. Theta waves are associated with mystery, an elusive and extraordinary realm we can explore. It is that twilight state which we normally only experience fleetingly as we rise from the depths of delta upon waking, or drifting off to sleep. In theta we are in a waking dream, vivid imagery flashes before the mind's eye and we are receptive to information beyond our normal conscious awareness. Theta has also been identified as the gateway to learning and memory. Theta meditation increases creativity, enhances learning, reduces stress and awakens intuition and other extrasensory perception skills.
DELTA waves range between 0-4 Hz. Delta is associated with deep sleep. In deepest meditation and dreamless sleep, Delta waves are generated. Each of these brainwave frequencies serves an important function. DELTA waves confer a suspension of external existence and provide the most profound feelings of peace. In addition, certain frequencies in the delta range trigger the release of growth hormone beneficial for healing and regeneration. This is why sleep, deep restorative sleep is so essential to the healing process.
WE'VE GOT RHYTHM: HUMAN PSYCHOPHYSIOLOGY
Thes from our bodies are closely interwoven. Our internal rhythms interact with external rhythms, affecting our SR waves probably help regulate our bodies' internal clocks, affecting sleep/dream patterns, arousal patterns, and hormonal secretion.
The rhythms and pulsations of the human brain mirror those of the resonant properties of the terrestrial cavity, which functions as a waveguide. This natural frequency pulsation is not a fixed number, but an average of global readings, much like EEG is an average of brainwave readings. SR actually fluctuates, like brainwaves, due to geographical location, lightning, solar flares, atmospheric ionization and daily cycles.
This bioelectrical domain is geared to thalamocortical generation of rhythmic activity. In neurofeedback, what is being trained is the degree of rhythmicity of the thalamocortical regulatory circuitry. Rhythmicity manages the entire range of activation and arousal in the bio-electrical domain. One role advocated for rhythmic activity is that of time binding, the need for harnessing brain electrical activity which is spatially distributed while maintaining it as a single entity. Brainwaves indicate the arousal dimension, and arousal mediates a number of conditions. Changes in sympathetic and parasympathetic arousal "tunes" the nervous system.
Underarousal leads toward Unipolar or Reactive Depression, Attention Deficit Disorder, chronic pain and insomnia. Overarousal is linked with anxiety disorders, sleep onset problems, nightmares, hypervigilance, impulsive behavior, anger/aggression, agitated depression, chronic nerve pain and spasticity. A combination of under- and overarousal causes anxiety and depression, as well as ADHD. Instabilities in certain rhythms can be correlated with tics, obsessive-compulsive disorder, aggressive behavior, rage, bruxism, panic attacks, bipolar disorder, migraines, narcolepsy, epilepsy, sleep apnea, vertigo, tinnitus, anorexia/bulimia, suicidal ideation and behavior, PMS, multiple chemical sensitivities, diabetes, hypoglycemia, and explosive behavior.
Delta waves are the slowest but highest in amplitude. They are abundant in deep, dreamless sleep, non-REM sleep, trance, and unconsciousness. Theta waves mean 'slow" activity connected often with creativity, intuition, daydreaming or recalling emotions and sensations. Focus is internal in this state between waking and sleep. Under stress it may manifest as distraction, lack of focus. Alpha waves aid relaxation and overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, inner awareness, mind/body integration and learning.
Beta is a 'fast' activity, present when we are alert or even anxious; problem-solving, judgment, decision making, processing information, mental activity, focus. Gamma appears to relate to simultaneously processing information from different brain areas: memory, learning abilities, integrated thoughts, information-rich task processing. Gamma rhythms modulate perception and consciousness, which disappears with anesthesia. Synchronous activity at about 40Hz appears involved in binding sensory inputs into the single, unitary objects we perceive.
The brain responds to inputs at a certain frequency or frequencies. The computer can create wave form patterns or certain frequencies that compare with the mind's neural signals in terms of mind patterns. If people can control their mind patterns, they can enter different states of being (mental relaxation, study, etc.). What happens when the mind is entrained with a sound or vibration that reflects the thought patterns? When the mind responds to certain frequencies and behaves as a resonator, is there a harmonic frequency that the mind vibrates to or can attune to? What does the study of harmonic resonance - sound or vibration have to do with the brain's frequency waves?
Soundwaves are examples of periodicity, of rhythm. Sound is measured in cycles per second (Hertz or Hz). Each cycle of a wave is in reality a single pulse of sound. The average range of hearing for the human ear is somewhere between 16 hz. and 20,000 Hz. We can not hear extremely low frequencies (ELFs), but we can perceive them as rhythmic.
Entrainment is the process of synchronization, where vibrations of one object will cause the vibrations of another object to oscillate at the same rate. External rhythms can have a direct effect on the psychology and physiology of the listener. Slower tempos from 48-70 BPMS have been proven to decrease heart and respiratory rates, thereby altering the predominate brainwave patterns.
Binaural beats are continuous tones of subtlety different frequencies, which are delivered to each ear independently in stereo via headphones. If the left channel's pitch is 100 cycles per second and the right channel's pitch is 108 cycles per second, the difference between the two equals 8 cycles per second. When these sounds are combined they produce a pulsing tone that waxes and wanes in a "wah-wah" rhythm.
Binaural beats are not an external sound; rather they are subsonic frequencies heard within the brain itself. These frequencies are created as both hemispheres work simultaneously to hear sounds that are pitched differed by key mathematical intervals (window frequencies). The brainwaves respond to these oscillating tones by following them (entrainment) and both hemispheres begin to work together. Communication between the two sides of the brain is associated with flashes of creativity, insight and wisdom.
Alpha-wave biofeedback is considered a consciousness self-regulation technique, while alpha-frequency binaural-beat stimulation (frequency-following response) is a passive management technique where cortical potentials entrain to or resonate at the frequency of an external stimulus. Through the self-regulation of specific cortical rhythms, we begin to control those aspects of consciousness associated with that rhythm. When the goal is alpha, either in meditation or biofeedback, it means entraining with the primary Schumann resonance.
Earth's background base frequency, or "heartbeat," (SR) fluctuates and may be rising dramatically. Though it varies among geographical regions, for decades the overall measurement was 7.8 cycles per second. This was once thought to be a constant and so global military communications were developed using this frequency. Recent reports set the rate at over 11 cycles, and climbing. Science doesn't know why, what to make of it, or even if these reports are credible.
Gregg Braden claims to have found data collected by Norwegian and Russian researchers, saying it's not widely reported in the U.S. These authors have been unable to substantiate this. He suggests the only reference to SR to be found in the Seattle Library reference section is tied to the weather. Science acknowledges SR as a sensitive indicator of temperature variations and worldwide weather conditions. Braden believes the fluctuating SR may be a factor in the severe storms, floods, and weather of recent years.
As previously stated, the Earth behaves like an enormous electric circuit. The atmosphere is actually a weak conductor and if there were no sources of charge, its existing electric charge would diffuse away in about 10 minutes. There is a 'cavity' defined by the surface of the Earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere, whose height also fluctuates somewhat. At any moment, the total charge residing in this cavity is reported at 500,000 Coulombs.
There is a vertical current flow between the ground and the ionosphere described in the literature at 1 - 3 x 10^-12 Amperes per square meter. The resistance of the atmosphere is 200 Ohms. The voltage potential is 200,000 Volts. There are about 1000 lightning storms at any given moment worldwide. Each produces 0.5 to 1 Ampere and these collectively account for the measured current flow in the Earth's 'electromagnetic' cavity.
The Schumann Resonances are quasi standing wave electromagnetic waves that exist in this cavity. Like waves on a string, they must be potentiated or excited in order to be observed. They are not caused by internal terrestrial factors, or Earth's crustal movements, or its core which does produce magnetic fields. SR is generated around electrical activity in the atmosphere, particularly emerging from intense lightning activity. While the properties of Earth's electromagnetic cavity remains about the same, these frequencies remain the same. Presumably there is some change due to the solar sunspot cycle as the Earth's ionosphere changes in response to flares and mass ejections during the 11-year cycle of solar activity. High energy charges coming off the sun brush across the upper atmosphere, ionizing gases in the upper atmosphere.
Since the earth's atmosphere carries a charge, a current and a voltage, it is not surprising to find such electromagnetic waves. The resonant properties of this terrestrial cavity were first mathematically predicted by German physicist W. O. Schumann between 1952 and 1957, and subsequently detected by him with Konig in 1954. Much of the research in recent decades has been conducted by the Department of the Navy who use Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) signals for communication with submarines. Of course, little attention is given by defense contractors to issues of psychobiological health and well being. ). The amplitude (i.e. intensity) of the Schumann resonance is no
One of the most crucial questions in science today centers on whether or not the planetary temperature is rising, falling, or remaining unchanged. Recently global warming has been acknowledged by most in the field, and technology is implicated. On one hand, analyses of thermometer measurements of near-surface global (land and sea) air temperatures suggest the planet has been warming in recent decades. But satellite measurements of the planet’s lower atmospheric temperature show little perceptible warming from 1979 to 1998.
Temperature data from weather balloons launched throughout the world reveal variations and trends in global temperatures that correspond to those found in the satellite based measurements. Analysis of pressure thickness measurements from these same balloons also shows no warming in recent decades. It’s no wonder we have such an ongoing "heated debate" about the recent temperature history of the earth! Most lay people know and recognize their local weather is markedly different than past decades.
Scientists have suggested lately that another method may exist to accurately monitor planetary temperature. The idea is simple, though the underlying physics of the processes are complex. The method is based on the well known fact that thunderstorms and lightning strokes in many parts of the world are directly related to lower-atmospheric air temperatures. Higher temperatures produce more lightning strokes, while lower temperatures tend to depress lightning activity.
Lightning discharges occurring anywhere in the world produce electromagnetic pulses that spread away from the source. Much of the energy is quickly degraded, but some of the energy the lightning produces falls in the extremely low-frequency, long-wavelength domain of the electromagnetic spectrum. At these long wavelengths, the energy from a lightning stroke is able to circumnavigate the earth without serious degradation. This low-frequency/long-wavelength energy creates SR signals which can be detected throughout the world.
Understanding SR waves requires a basic appreciation of the vertical structure of the atmosphere. In that upper reaches of the ionosphere, incoming ultraviolet radiation and soft X-rays affect atoms or bonded groups of atoms, causing gains or losses of negatively charged electrons. This interaction creates an environment of positively and negatively charged particles of the high atmosphere that, among other interesting qualities, can readily conduct electricity.
The bulk of our insultating atmosphere lies between two conducting layers of earth's surface and the lower boundary of the ionosphere. This spherically concentric cavity, called the earth-ionosphere cavity, is bounded by those electrically conducting walls. Again, lightning discharges within the cavity produce electromagnetic pulses that spread away from the source in the extremely low-frequency domain, and the conductive walls of the cavity produce some interesting effects for the low-frequency energy.
For example, energy with a frequency near 7.5 Hz (7.5 cycles per second) would have a wavelength of about 40,000 km (recall that wavelength = speed of light / frequency). Because this wavelength equals the circumference of the earth, the energy is able to circumnavigate the earth–ionosphere cavity without serious degradation. The 100 or so lightning bolts occurring each second in the 2,000 concurrent thunderstorms around the world contribute to the energy in the 7.5 Hz portion of the spectrum, which can be measured anywhere on the planet. It is these resonance properties of the global spherical capacitor or resonator that Schumann first predicted over 40 years ago.
In an article published in Science, M.I.T. scientist Earle Williams (1992) constructed a powerful argument that links Schumann resonances to convection and ultimately to widespread tropical and/or global temperature. Williams concluded that a 1°C warming in the tropics should result in a fourfold increase in lightning activity, and he presented empirical data from several locations to support his conclusion. He noted that any measurable parameter nonlinearly related to temperature could be extremely useful in assessing the most subtle changes in global temperature. Others have presented different sensitivities: Price (1993) concluded 1°C warming would increase global lightning activity by 7 percent; Price and Rind (1994) found a 5 percent to 6 percent increase per 1°C sensitivity; while Reeve and Toumi (1998) found the sensitivity to be near 40 percent per 1°C.
Regardless of the exact sensitivity, all scientists conclude that lightning increases for even moderate amounts of warming worldwide. More lightning generates a stronger SR, which may be useful in monitoring planetary temperature. The link between SR and the number of lightning strokes is supported by a mean day–night temperature fluctuation pattern. A diurnal pattern of worldwide lightning exists with three maxima recorded regularly due to the large number of mid- to late-afternoon thunderstorms in land areas of Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia and Australia. Storms typically are first generated in Asia, later they form in Africa, and later each day they congeal in South America. i
A systematic study of SR parameters during high-energy particle precipitation events has also been presented. Protons and electrons with energies above 1 MeV ionize the upper boundary of the Earth-ionosphere cavity, leading to an increase of the resonance frequency and a decrease of the damping of the first Schumann resonance, as derived from measurements at Arrival Heights, Antarctica.
The study used the nine strongest solar proton events of the past Solar Cycle 22 and high-energy electrons emitted periodically from co-rotating interaction regions in the solar wind during 1994-1995. The variation of the SR parameters is in qualitative agreement with current theories of Schumann resonances. The study also shows that high-energy particle precipitation -- solar ejecta -- is not the only relevant source affecting SR parameters. The reported findings constitute a so far little-explored aspect of solar-terrestrial interaction.
TAMPERING WITH THE IONOSPHERE
Clearly, the dangers from conventional EM pollution sources and solar system dynamics are substantial on their own. But the potentials from so-called "ionospheric heaters" are truly frightening, for we have no idea what possibilities can emerge from long-term meddling with the delicate balance of the ionosphere and global temperature, which is also linked to a world-wide oceanic pumping system whose source lies off Greenland.
Tesla technology has been applied in a variety of ways, through the HAARP Project, (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Progam), which might have cavalierly been called, "How to Exploit the Ionosphere for Fun and Profit." Yet this is No Joke! There are smaller systems at Arecibo, Puerto Rico; Fairbanks Alaska; Tromso, Norway, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Apatity, Russia; Kharkov, Ukraine and Dushanbe, Tadzhikstan.
HAARP is the largest of the so-called 'ionospheric heaters'. The ionosphere begins approximately 35 miles above the surface and extends out beyond 500 miles. It contains both positively and negatively charged particles known as ions and electrons naturally created as a result of the action of the sun's radiation (solar winds). The ionosphere is capable of strong interaction with radio waves -- distorting them, totally reflecting or absorbing them. Downward propagating waves can couple into the Earth-ionospheric wave guide.
H. L. Roland, expert in beam and plasma physics at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington D.C. says it is possible to modulate the ambient current flowing in the ionosphere. The auroral electrojet can be manipulated to generate extremely low frequency (ELF) and very low frequency (VLF) radiation. This ionospheric modification technique can provide such waves for probing both the Earth and the ionosphere-magnetosphere. The modification occurs in the lower D-region and can provide information about the ambient conditions in one of the least diagnosed regions of the ionosphere.
HAARP's massive antenna-array (360 72 foot tall antennas, over a thirty-three acre field, acting as one giant array) is managed by the US Air Force and US Navy in Gakona, Alaska (200 miles east of Anchorage). It heats the upper atmosphere with a focused and steerable electromagnetic beam designed to simulate and control ionospheric process. Gigawatts of effective radiated power of high frequency radio energy are pumped into the ionosphere. The transmitter (a particle injection device) can produce a beam anywhere from several miles to several tens of miles in radius, using the 2.5-10 megahertz frequency range, at more than 3 gigawatts of power (3 billion watts) creating plumes of charged particles.
In 1998 input power was raised to 10 gigawatts, transmittable in the the north-south or east-west direction. Reports say in each transmission cycle, HAARP switches from the east-west to the north-south beams and back again, producing a spiraling or "cork-screwing" upward at 0.9Hz.. This is called "circular polarization" of the radio signal. It makes ions in the upper atmosphere move in big circles with a one second lap time.
Optimum lap time is dictated by the plasma density related to the temperature, number of ions and neutral atoms in the ionosphere. This makes the ions, both electrons and protons, into little electromagnets. HAARP also can function as a particle gun. The particles shoot off into space, still spiraling and magnetic, following the earth's magnetic field lines, completing a circuit from pole to pole in one second.
A number of public reasons for this project are given, including ELF communications for submarines, but another host of surveillance and covert military applications are suspected, based on Tesla's original descriptions of the powers of such a massive pulse technology, including mind-control experiments. Detractors have called HAARP a "skybuster" since it effectively slices through the ionosphere like a microwave knife, producing a long tear or incision.
Physicist Daniel Winter, Ph.D. says HAARP high-frequency emissions can couple with longwave (low-frequency, or ELF) pulses the Earth grid uses to distribute information as vibrations to synchronize the dance of life in the biosphere. He terms this geomagnetic action 'Earth's information bloodstream", and claims it is probable that coupling HAARP HF (high-frequency) with natural ELF (extremely low frequency) can cause unplanned, unsuspected side effects.
As the Earth rotates, HAARP slices across geomagnetic flux (a donut-shaped spool of magnetic strings like longitude meridians on maps). HAARP may not 'cut' these strings in the magnetic mantle, but does pulse each thread with harsh, disharmonious high frequencies, whose noisy impulses vibrate geomagnetic flux lines, sensing shuddering vibrations throughout the geomagnetic web. We can only conjecture at this point about its effects on the foundations of human electromagnetic function.
Paul Schaefer, electrical engineer, alleges that radiation excites large numbers of tiny unstable particles, high-velocity particles in the atmosphere and Van Allen Belts and can be the villain in weather disruption as Earth discharges the buildup of heat, relieving stress and tectonic strain through earthquakes and volcanic action.
Ionospheric heaters deliberately create instabilities in the plasma layer of the ionosphere to rev up the the energy level of charged particles. This results also in electronic rain from the sky -- electron precipitation from the magnetosphere. It is caused by man-made very low frequency EM waves. The precipitated particles can produce secondary ionization, emit X-rays, and cause significant perturbation in the lower atmosphere, potentially affecting human brainwaves, and even our evolution, if Hainsworth is correct.
Thus, we see that HAARP can be employed for nefarious weather modification, which can also damage the ozone layer and cause earthquakes. An electronic beam can ionize or de-ionize the atmosphere over a given area, including military targets. Thus, the key to geophysical warfare is the identification of environmental instabilities where adding a small amount of energy can release vastly greater amounts of energy. Hopefully, this system won't soon be tested in any possible confrontation in the Middle East.
Frighteningly, mankind can now tamper with weather manipulation, climate modification, polar ice cap melting or destabilization, ozone depletion techniques, earthquake engineering, ocean wave control and brain wave manipulations using the planet's energy fields, according to geophysics and planetary physics expert Professor Gordon J. F. MacDonald. We must become more aware, as are scientists that global weather is a complex system, including air pressure and thermal systems, but also an electrical system. Because of the so-called 'butterfly effect" described in chaos theory, input of small charges get pumped up into big effects, since HAARP pulses the ionosphere where it is relatively unstable, creating greater turbulence. Complex systems, can suddenly collapse in catastrophic events. Cascades of effects could destroy the biosphere.
It is important to remember that the ionosphere is an active electrical UV shield which protects the biosphere from the constant bombardment of high-energy radiation and particles from space. This conducting plasma, along with the Earth's magnetic field, traps the electrical plasma of space and holds it back from going directly to the earth's surface, says Charles Yost of Dynamic Systems, Leicester, North Carolina. Power line harmonic resonance causes fallout of charged particles from the Van Allen (radiation) belts, and the falling ions cause ice crystals which precipitate rain clouds. HAARP can release a thousandfold-greater amount of energy than the power injected into the ionosphere.
Non-linear effects mean small input with multi-gigawatt pulsing leads to exponentially larger output. A "non-linear reaction" results from a small input of energy entering an environmental instability and producing a vastly increased energy output. Early ionospheric heaters began as ground-based antennae that would focus a cone-shaped beam of energy over a relatively large portion of the ionosphere, to heat it sufficient to get the desired energy gain. When physicist Eastlund reversed the cone of the radio beam, a much smaller spot on the ionosphere was pulsed with radio waves to superheat it. The array of antennae on the ground were all focused on a very specific point. When antennas fire in sequence, they produce a pulsed beam, up to 1,000-fold increase.
Therefore, human activities could cause a significant change in the planet's electrical circuit or electrical field through man-made ionization from radioactive material or HAARP-type skybusters. Solar flares modulate conductivity in the earth's electric field but may be barely detectable meteorologically. Still, their effects on mass communication and electrical grids is known to all. Man-made ionization pumps a much higher level of power to zap atoms and knock electrons off the atoms resulting in charged particles, and could potentially destabilize or 'short-circuit' the Earth, potentially exposing the entire biosphere to hard-core ultraviolet radiation.
We don't know the long-term outcome of Beat Wave Excitation. Ryutov, Cowley (UCLA) and Valeo (Princeton) say, "The simultaneous use of HIPAS and HAARP to heat the same patch of the ionosphere open up a new phenomena for study. Experiments to study this interaction are underway. One way to obtain very large beat wave amplitudes is to trap the beat waves as an eigenmode. We found weakly damped upper hybrid eingenmodes in our initial calculations. We plan to study various low group velocity modes. We have developed a raytracing code to follow both pump and beat waves. We use a numerical algorithm to determine the three wave matching point and use analytic formula to launch pump waves at this point." Are they actually saying that it's nice to fool with mother nature?
The HAARP pulse has two primary components. The pre-heat megawatt pulse is aimed straight upwards from the HAARP facility at the ionosphere, where it interacts with electrons, protons or ionized parts of atoms like oxygen, ozone, or nitrogen. Normally randomly moving particles in the near-vacuum of space become part of the atmosphere. When the pulse hits they become super-excited to 300,000 kilometers per second. Striking the atmosphere, they are ionized. Ions suddenly increase, and hit other atoms creating the "ionospheric heating." In portion A of the pulse, identifier tones are sent at frequencies of 360, 1000, 1700 Hz, In Part B the tones are 650 Hz with harmonics at 1300 Hz. In Part C there is continuous tone signal at 2100 Hz remaining throughout the whole pulse, with a weaker tone around 2500Hz.
International concerns over HAARP and sister projects deploying similar energy beams have continued unabated for over a decade. The most recent developments and proposals are not encouraging:
"The U.S. military's Joint Vision 2020 report shamelessly documents its desire to establish “full spectrum dominance” over the Earth. “U.S. Space Command confirmed that Vision 2020 was its current policy, but a spokesman said it was in the process of being updated,” Britain’s Independent newspaper reported a year ago. The Independent article’s thesis was obvious—the United States is becoming a “rogue” state isolated from its Western European allies.
“What is clear is that part of the money voted to Bush’s Star Wars plan will be used for research into space-based lasers,” the Independent reported. “These, we are told, will be used to shoot down the missiles fired in anger by ‘rogue states.’ But they will, inevitably, evolve into weapons aimed at America’s enemies from space. U.S. Space Command doesn’t even bother to hide this fact. The most chilling illustration in Vision 2020 is of such a space-based laser firing a beam of energy at the earth.”
"Earlier this year, U.S. Representative Dennis Kucinich told Alive that Vision 2020 is already an ongoing military program to experiment with directed energy. On November 9 last year, Carol R. Schuster, director for defense capabilities and management of the General Accounting Office (GAO), briefed the Democratic minority members of the House Armed Services Committee on Joint Vision 2020. Schuster explained, “Joint Vision 2020 also emphasizes the importance of experimentation to identify innovations in warfighting.
"Designated as DOD’s [Department of Defense’s] executive agent for joint warfighting experimentation in 1998, the U.S. Joint Forces Command conducts experiments on new warfighting concepts and operations.” Schuster pointed out, “The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff recognizes that a joint force is key to operational success and envisions an interoperable joint force with technologically advanced warfighting capabilities able to dominate any adversary by 2020.”
"Schuster confirmed Kucinich’s comments in a report detailing that “the Joint Requirements Oversight Council plays a key role” in advancing Vision 2020, and that “U.S. Joint Forces Command conducts experiments on new warfighting concepts and operations.” “In 1998, the U.S. Joint Forces Command began to implement a joint experimentation program to test new warfighting concepts that now support Joint Vision 2020,” Schuster reported.
"The HAARP program is jointly administered by the U.S. Navy and Air Force and is a central part of the Vision 2020 strategy. A February 1990 HAARP Joint Service program plan drafted by the Air Force’s Geophysical Laboratory and the Navy’s Office of Naval Research documents the plan’s military applications: The document indicates that HAARP will be used, among other things, for generating extremely low-frequency waves for submerged submarine communication and possible weather warfare applications, and for attempts to take advantage of natural ionospheric processes by directing energy through the ionosphere and back to Earth. The Russians and some European allies are worried that the U.S. military’s experiments focusing large amounts of high-frequency energy for military purposes could theoretically trigger earthquakes. In April 1992, Defense News reported that the U.S. deployed an electromagnetic pulse weapon during Operation Desert Storm." (Fitrakis, 2002)
COLLATING THE GEOPHYSICAL AND PSYCHOBIOLOGICAL DATA
Great care needs to be taken collating geophysical and psychobiological data, because it is difficult to attribute specific agents to changes in human health and behavior since we all live in a webwork of tremendous complexity. Liasons need to be made with various sources monitoring the important dimensions for whatever reasons, and the data applied to this research direction. people and an especially negative impact on already "unstable" individuals.
Other factors which must be considered include Solar Terrestrial Activity Reports, changes in the geomagnetic field, sunspot activity and coronal holes, solar flux, coronal mass ejections (CMEs) and flares (http://www.dxlc.com/solar/ ). Some of this material has been collated at the 'Earth Monitor Website' by Michael Mandeville (http://www.michaelmandeville.com/earthmonitor/ ), a founding member of O.A.K. (Organization for the Advancement of Knowledge), with one of the authors, Richard Alan Miller. Mandeville's "Oak Tree Memorandum" described effects of sunspot activity throughout 2002-2003. Parameters of influence include human aggression, violence, and wars over the past couple of hundred years, stock market and food production, etc. as well as the weather patterns of the past several years. Sunspot and ejecta activity for this 23rd solar cycle is expected to abate, as of April-May, 2003.
HAARP Project (http://www.haarp.alaska.edu), itself, provides
public records from its fluxgate magnetometer (http://137.229.36/cgi-bin/magnetometer/gak-mag.cgi
). Geomagnetic storminess is usually indicated in oscillatory
variations in the earth's magnetic field. Additional data
concerning the nature and severity of the ionospheric disturbance
can be found through analysis of the three components of the field.
Data from a chain of magnetometers is also available on a regular
IMPLICATIONS AND DIRECTIONS
Further research on these electromagnetic relationships is essential, perhaps even to our psychophysical survival as a species. They affect our minds, the cellular and genetic structure of our bodies, our sleep and dream cycles, our emotions, perhaps even our spirit. Monitoring and collating these effects of atmospheric tampering and their potential influence on the ionosphere and SR, therefore human brainwaves and health, should be continued. We are approaching the end of the current sunspot cycle, and should use an entire 11 year cycle to acquire accurate data results, as Hainsworth suggested.
A team of researchers and physicists, including these authors, is pulling together some relevant data under the auspices of the Journal of Non-Local and Remote Mental Interactions (JNLRMI) at http://www.emergentmind.com edited by physicist Lian Sidorov. A major hypothesis of this group is that em fields outside of the body are crucial for our consciousness. Finnish physicist Matti Pikanen has developed a model of physics, called Topological Geometrodynamics (TGD), highlighting the close relationship of human physiology with SR and other ELF and electromagnetic patterns.
Pitkanen believes that not only global, but interplanetary and interstellar magnetic fields are of great importance for conscious life. His explanations involve magnetic flux tubes, a dipole-like part of a field. A wide range of em waves, in particular microwaves and radiowaves are likely key elements in homeostasis, remote mental interactions between cells and other structures, and sensory representation, as well as in remote mental interactions both within and outside of the body. He explains that the noise level of Earth's magnetic field must be low for anomalous cognition (also called psi or ESP) to occur. Alan Frey suggested similar field notions decades ago, speaking specifically of microwave range inputs.
These em fields are only correlates of consciousness. Still, TGD allows the possibility of assigning someone's field body a topological field quanta identity. Pitkanin also suggests these fields and waves are influential when biological systems perform quantum computation-like processes. His biophysics suggests that neural circuits and molecules are bound by lock and key mechanisms through this process of magnetic circulation (topologically quantized diploar magnetic fields).
Pitkanen even sees Earth's magnetic field as a quantized dipolar magnetic field interaction of knotting, linking, and complex twisting. TGD views the brain and nervous system as a sensory organ for our extended, electromagnetic selves, which have a length scale at least the size of the Earth's diameter. He suggests further that psi phenomena and distant healing may involve transfer of specific electromagnetic frequencies through Planck-length wormholes and join-along boundaries postulated by TGD, which would allow for the near-instant transfer of information.
[T]he magnetic sensory canvas hypothesis provides a mechanism for "sharing qualia" associated with distant points on the geomagnetic sphere - essentially a form of cognitive entanglement between operator and target. One clear advantage of TGD over other models of subtle energy transmission is that the EM fields are not directly carried from sender to target, but are simultaneously generated at the two locations by a vacuum (geometrical) current: hence they remain coherent while bypassing the paradox of non-attenuation with distance. . .the illusion of our locality is perpetuated by the data fed to us by our senses - that is, those perceptions we are habituated to pay attention to. (Sidorov, JNLRMI)
Other research suggests the fundamental interaction of internal and external fields is the right track. Joseph Jacobson (2002) at MIT, found a way to switch cells off and on with radio waves. His team also "unzipped" and manipulated DNA with a radio-frequency pulse. The same approach worked on proteins as well, and proteins orchestrate nearly all cellular chemical processes. Further, physicist Peter Gariaev has proposed a wave-based genome, whose main information channel is the same for both biophotons and radio waves (see www.emergentmind.org).
In 1973, Miller, Webb and Dickson described DNA as a holographic projector (see "Embroyonic Holography"). In other words, genes encode and express themselves via light and radio waves, or acoustical holography (see "Quantum Bioholography", Miller, Miller and Webb, JNLRMI , 2002). Delocalized interference patterns create calibration fields (blueprints) for our bodies' space-time organization. The system works as a biocomputer -- a wave biocomputer. DNA can also function as a gel-like liquid crystal, emitting a weak laser-like light that can be converted into an electro-acoustic signal.
In conclusion, Miller and Miller postulate, along with others that,
1. The organization of all biological systems is established by complex electrodynamic fields. We are fundamentally electromagntic, rather than chemical beings. Wave interaction is a key determinant of biological structure and optimal functioning. Biosystems are sensitive to natural and artificial electromagnetic fields. Perturbations in environmental fields can induce changes in organisms informed by those fields. Field frequencies and amplitudes affect our biodynamic state.
2. ELF frequencies of Schumann's Resonance are intimately linked with those of human brainwaves. Natural or artificially induced changes in SR could affect subtle and perhaps gross brainwave generation. In particular, it could lead to changes in patterns and frequencies of resonance and resulting phenomena such as homeostasis, REM, psi, and healing.
For a decade, Robert Beck researched the brain wave activity of healers from all cultures and religious backgrounds (he enumerates psychics, shamans, dowsers, Christian healers, seers, ESP readers, kahuna, Santeria, wicca practitioners and others). Independent of their belief systems, each exhibited "nearly identical EEG signatures" during their "healing" moments: a 7.8-8Hz brainwave activity, which lasted from one to several seconds and which was "phase and frequency-synchronized with the earth's geoelectric micropulsations - the Schumann resonance". (Sidorov, JNLRMI)
3. Liquid crystals (DNA, brain ventricles, and cellular structures) in the human body may operate as antennae for detecting and decoding such global and local ELF signals. Beal (1996) proposes that liquid crystals (which are an intrinsic part of cell membranes) act as a detector/amplifier/memory storage device for ELF EM patterns in the environment. Proteins, tend to orient themselves in the 10-Hx resonant EMF, so would be extremely sensitive to ELF changes in the 10Hz region. A coherent wave-field may emerge from the body's own liquid crystal (LC) matrix.
The very structure and organization of living tissues is, however, itself regulated by that master molecule, the DNA. The genetic system (consisting, to be more accurate, of an equidirectional translation function which may start equally well with DNA, RNA or protein) reveals itself as a complex, multidimensional code with both local (codon) and global (context), material (nucleotide) and field-like (EM hologram) parameters, all of which are mutually interdependent and at the same time subject to external, environmental influences. (Sidorov, JNLRMI)
4. There is a strong correlation between behavioral disturbances in humans and periods of solar and geomagnetic field turbulence. Conversely, studies show that subjects living in isolation from geomagnetic rhythms over long periods of time developed increasing irregularities and chaotic physiological rhythms - which were dramatically restored after the introduction of a very weak 10Hz electrical field. Early astronauts suffered until SR generators were installed in their spacecrafts.
Geomagnetic anomalies (tectonic strain, earthlights, geomagnetic field perturbations) can induce some forms of anomalous cognition - such as auditory and visual hallucinations, and TLTs (temporal lobe transients or small seizures). Also, one of the effects of meditation is to "quiet the mind" as a method of allowing the "free-run" (or silent thalamic periods) to become entrained by natural geophysical rhythms. This form of tuning or "magnetoreception" is mediated by the pineal gland (30% of its cells are magnetically sensitive) and organic magnetite-containing tissues.
Persinger (1989) points out that deep temporal lobe activity exists in equilibrium with the global geomagnetic condition. When there is a sudden decrease in geomagnetic activity, there appears to be an enhancement of processes that facilitate psi reception, especially telepathy and clairvoyance. Increases in geomagnetic activity may suppress pineal melatonin levels and contribute to reductions of cortical seizure thresholds. Indeed, melatonin is correlated with temporal lobe- related disorders such as depression and seizures. (Krippner)
5. Optimal global ELF (calm night; low sunspot activity; low em pollution) conditions can facilitate anomalous cognitions, including psi such as ESP, remote viewing, and remote healing.
[P]si is always present in space and time, waiting to be accessed by crisis, emotion, or by optimal laboratory stimulus parameters. Geomagnetic activity may affect the detection capacity of the brain for this information, especially the neural pathways that facilitate the consolidation and conscious access to this information. Without this geomagnetic activity, awareness of the psi stimulus might not be as likely and the brain's "latent reserve capacities" would not be utilized. (Krippner)
6. Sidorov (2001) and others have suggested that human intent functions as a variable window of transmission/reception in the exchange of extrasensory information, possibly within the range of ELF electromagnetic frequencies. Brain synchronization with Schumann's Resonance of both sender and receiver facilitates psi, or "therapeutic entrainment," amplifying, re-radiating coherent waveforms derived from the environment, simulating the wave pattern of the environment. Sidorov further hypothesizes,
[B]rainvawes (particularly in the alpha range) can be transmitted along the perineural system (or via Frohlich excitation) to any distal parts of the body, and even to adjacent organisms, via ELF EM waves. These frequencies can be amplified by closely-related Schumann resonance waves, or by feedback mechanisms typical of the body's physiological pathways (akin to immunologic and neuroendocrinologic cascades). In turn, these basic frequencies can re-activate stalled healing processes, enhance growth, accelerate immune responses, and generally "jump-start" functions inherent to the body's tissues, by "rebalancing its energies" (according to Oriental medicine) or (in Beal's terminology) by re-configuring the liquid crystal orientation of cell membrane components and thus triggering specific intracellular responses.
In light of all of the above observations, we are proposing that the Schumann resonance may be the substrate for a radar-type extrasensory perception mechanism common to all living beings: like water bouncing off of rocks and other submerged objects, this non-specific frequency is absorbed and re-radiated in unique interference patterns by all objects it encounters; this interference pattern is a composite of external and internal properties, as the constituent atoms, molecules and their global assembly all re-transmit this energy according to their specific configurations (see Beal on biopolymers). Not only that, but the "sounding" wave can be frequency and pattern (Wallaczek) - modulated by conscious intent in order to yield specific information (interference patterns), which are then decoded by the brain as they return almost instantly on the "back" of the Schumann resonance. Once recaptured, the patterns are then decoded by the brain in a Fourier-type transformation and the information translated into conscious data, much like other sensory processing. Conversely, specific effects may be imprinted as bioinformation and made to exercise a "mysterious action at a distance", once the signal wave reaches the target. That pattern, in turn, may, under the right ("pre-requisite") global conditions, avoid routine dissipation and become instead coupled to the dominating ("state-of-consciousness") standing wave that is picked up and carried by the Schumann resonance.
In a prior, "first-thoughts" essay discussing the presence of Schumann frequencies in the EEG during various healing practices we had proposed that mental intent might function as a variable window of transmission/ reception in the exchange of extrasensory information, which tuned into the Schumann resonance to carry such bio-regulating information to distant targets and acted as a primitive, radar-type sensory interface (Sidorov 2001). However, pursuing this line of thought soon lead to the landmark experiments of Robert Becker - who, it became evident, had not only reached somewhat similar conclusions based on his own body of evidence, but had gone beyond them to suggest that such subtle currents could reach far deeper into our genetic and consciousness control mechanisms.
After nearly eight decades of EEG and other brain imaging studies, it is sobering to realize that we still can't tell with certainty where EEG voltages come from (Becker 1985, pp 88). It is conceivable that Becker's perineural system and/or the LC - liquid crystal matrix of the organism (including, but not limited to, connective tissues, cell membranes and DNA) might act as a full-body array of sensory receptors for Pitkanen's magnetic sensory canvas signals, with specific excitations patterns coding for different types of information.
[T]he body's ubiquitous liquid crystal arrays and their almost infinite configuration possibilities make them a top candidate for the primary sensory receptors parapsychology has been looking for. It is even conceivable that DNA phase-conjugation properties (see Popp and Chang 1998) allow it to function as a multi-mode antenna, altering its function according to surrounding signal fields and possibly acting not just as a regulatory program, but also an element of "extrasensory" perception.
As human beings we have extraordinary potentials we have hardly begun to study much less understand. Creative gifts, intuitions, and talents that are unpredictable or emergent may become stabilized in generations to come. Hopefully, we can learn to understand both our emergence from an essentially electromagnetic environment and facilitate our potential for healing, growth and non-local communication.
A tremendous amount of money has been spent on HAARP and its allied projects (such as the proposed Star Wars missile defense program) without a complementary sum going toward research about potential hazards. The costs in both dollars and ruined lives could be staggering compared to any potential benefits derived from such programs. For epochs, Schumann Resonances have provided the orchestrating pulse for life on the planet -- our planetary heartbeat, which sets the tempo for health and well-being.
Hopefully we will come to appreciate this fully before our technology drives the planet so far from the norm that the trajectory of human evolution is altered forever. Thus, the study of the relationship of our bodies, the electromagnetic environment and interaction with potentially planet-altering technology is more important than ever to understand on the subtlest levels.
