In light of Obama's announcement of a
$100 million brain-mapping project, which is being promoted as essential
to unlocking the secrets behind degenerative brain conditions and
kick starting job growth, it is worth examining the darker potential.
This mission has actually been around for some
time within the halls of elite think-tanks, and now appears to be coming to
The titles of the modules reflect the areas of examination:
The results from these modules have been published, and clearly illustrate how this panel views the lower public masses in light of their status as the elite arbiters of human destiny.
The dual approach to this investigation must be
kept in mind as the U.S. government is now rolling out the BRAIN initiative
as the next great thing since the human genome project. The ramifications
are potentially even more momentous.
I would submit that objective scientific inquiry is absolutely necessary and that the proper role of science is to disseminate results to the public for open debate, prior to their implementation.
However, think-tanks such as the Royal Society betray, by their own language, subjective biases (and corporate connections) that have no place in true science.
The Royal Society funds over 700 private ventures, which undoubtedly are directed by findings from studies such as Brain Waves.
While their studies might be couched in scientific terminology, there is always a philosophical overlay that indicates a desire to study the sciences specifically for use toward a purpose that a relatively small group sees fit.
Furthermore, given that many developments in neuroscience are already being forced upon the public in a negative manner, the claims of open debate and "welcoming comments from the public" seem disingenuous.
Rather, what we have is a another think-tank blueprint that
is merely stating the current course planned long ago, as well as what is to
be rolled out in the near future under projects like BRAIN.
...and a host of others.
Their thoughts translate to reality on a
less-than-coincidental frequency, so we would do well to listen to what they
have been saying.
The Project (an elite view of the brain)
Slightly odd given that their results are directed toward humans, but this would be consistent with much of elitist statements and writings from,
...and others who literally refer to the masses as a lower form of animal.
(Are we to
assume we're viewed here as bird brains?)
An overview for subsequent modules in,
Their statement of intent reads as follows:
Similar to their discussion of weather
control, this study seeks an all-inclusive approach that spans the full
spectrum of society, begging the same question they asked previously
regarding the implementation of scientific discovery, "Who decides?"
Module 2 - Implications for education and lifelong learning
From the summary:
One group is conspicuously absent from this particular part of the summary: parents. Rather, we are given a small glimpse into the mindset of technocrats and scientific dictators everywhere who have a worldview of central management and social engineering as the solutions for society at large.
In this new world,
it is the state and its scientists who are to hold the key for
humanity's next stage of evolution, not the individual or family unit.
From the summary:
This is nothing less than a justification for the military to become the guinea pig testing ground for what will eventually trickle down to the rest of us.
Everything from drugs,
Here is a video of the Chair of the Royal Society's new project, Professor Rod Flower, who has some interesting things to say about how the military applications are "very, very exciting and potentially very useful for us," as indicated by their study of neuroscience applications.
For me, Brave New World comes to mind.
This video is specifically related to Module 3, but provides a good overview of the general areas of study.
Module 4 - Responsibility and the law
From the summary:
Here we see an indication of the endgame, which we already see being played out in the latest high-tech phase of the War on Terror.
Technologies like FAST are being touted as mobile lie detectors that all people will be scanned by for "malintent" regardless of any presumption of innocence. Scientists will decide the markers, the computer will provide the reading, and a bureau of State agents will make the final threat analysis.
The only function that "law" has under this type of scenario is which prison or rehabilitation center to assign to those marked as trouble by the scientific dictatorship.
We already have seen how the establishment think-tanks dictate their policies regarding "normal behavior."
For example, the list of new "disorders" coming from mainline medical sources are
actually normal human behavior for people of sound mind and, yet,
the global Orwellian initiative to declare everyone mentally ill is
already well underway, as shown by the skyrocketing prescriptions given
across the board to both adults and children.
Add to this the military and legal implications, and
even a bird brain can envision where we might be heading next.
