Today Nick Redfern posted an item of interest involving MJ-12 and the so-called Majestic Documents. Nick discovered a de-classified document on the Department of Defense’s website that dealt with Project Pandora, a CIA-funded effort that, as Nick notes, focused (in part) on how microwaves can affect the mind and nervous-system. In short, Project Pandora was related to remote mind control. As one source explains:1
From 1965 to 1970, a study dubbed Project Pandora was undertaken to determine the health and psychological effects of low intensity microwaves, the so-called “Moscow signal” registered at the American Embassy in Moscow. Initially, there was confusion over whether the signal was an attempt to activate bugging devices or for some other purpose. There was suspicion that the microwave irradiation was being used as a mind control system. CIA agents asked scientists involved in microwave research whether microwaves beamed at humans from a distance could affect the brain and alter behavior.
Another source summarizes Pandora use of this technology this way (emphasis mine):
This meant that by mimicking natural brain frequencies, the human brain could be controlled remotely by use of extremely low frequency broadcast carried by pulse modulated microwave beams (ELF pulse modulated microwave remote mind control technology.
Nick’s wording isn’t completely clear to me regarding what he wrote next — the real reason I’m blogging this. Either this document was part of a file that runs almost 500 pages, or the document itself runs that length (seems like the former). In any event, on page 449 Nick discovered that it (file or document) contains a copy of the “MJ12/Eisenhower Briefing Document.” This document is one of the more notorious of the Majestic Document cache, and specifically deals with the events in Roswell in 1947. (For those who have read my novel The Facade, this document features in the story). Nick thought the presence of the document “weird” and raised the obvious question: What is a copy of this document doing in a file/document about Project Pandora — which dealt with remote mind control?
Good question indeed. I’ve been thinking about it off-and-on all day; hence this post.
The question took my mind back to the well-documented relationship between the government, UFOs and psychological warfare. Since some of Nick’s work has contributed to the discussion on how technology inherited from Nazi Germany via Operation: Paperclip appears to have been behind the Roswell incident, my thoughts also drifted in that direction. Another question therefore surfaced: did the Nazi military-industrial complex experiment and/or develop microwave technology? If so, that at least creates a context for some of what Pandora was up to and the UFO incidents behind the Majestic documents. In other words, the Nazi Paperclip techno-geeks that became embedded in the U.S. military industrial complex would have had their hands in both pies, and both UFOs and remote mind control are both demonstrable parts of covert psychological warfare programs run in the U.S. in the Cold War era.
Turns out this suspicion has some coherence, or at least all the data points have legitimacy. And yes, there are connections to the Luftwaffe and Thuringia.
In Henry Stevens’ 2007 book, Hitler’s Suppressed and Still-Secret Weapons, Science and Technology, Chapter 34 (” ‘Y’ Communication Facilities”) reads as follows (emphasis mine; online source):
There have always been rumors that the Germans developed special ELF wave communications devices by which a U-boat drug a one-mile antenna so that worldwide communications were possible. A further rumor goes that this same system was used, not only for communication, but for recharging the U-boat’s batteries via some long distance Tesla-type of technology. In this rumor the mile-long antenna receives electrical energy propagated directly through the earth by a mysterious generator somewhere in Germany. I have even heard it said by a knowledgeable person that Dr. W.O. Schumann was involved in this work. I cannot confirm nor deny these rumors, but I can relate the existence of another rumored secret communication system.
There are hints that the Germans developed a super-secret, high-tech, long distance communication system. This system was said to be new and totally independent of other German communication systems. Thomas Mehner and Edgar Mayer as well as other researchers have investigated a whole series of huge underground installations in and around the Jonas Valley in Thuringia. One of these facilities, code-named “Burg” is generally thought to have, as at least one of its ultimate aims, the function of a huge communications switch-board connecting the Reich together. Keeping this in mind, Mr. Mehner obtained an American intelligence document describing such a communications network (PW Intelligence Bulletin No. 2/32, January 30, 1945, USAF Archives, Alabama, microfilm roll A 5370, Nr. 519.6501-2).
This document is based on the interrogation of a German prisoner of war. In summary, he said that there were six facilities in Germany fitted with the “Y” communication system. They were built between 1943 and 1944. These were for communications purposes of a special kind and supported the Luftwaffe. Using this document and a living informant, Mr. Mehner and Mr. Mayer add that the firm Siemens was the contractor involved in building this top-secret, stand-alone network. Such a network was closely associated with the work going on at the facility named “Burg”.
The reason this is being mentioned is that another American document has come to light using the FOIA and search-words involving “Y” and “communications”2. This document also uses the information gathered from a prisoner of war. In this case the PW was a graduate engineer of the Technische Hochschule, Dresden where he majored in electrical engineering. In 1938 the subject came to work for Siemens & Halske where he did coil research. From September of 1942 to July of 1943 he worked with a Dr. Heinrich in an ultra-short wave laboratory. They developed a 10-channel decimeter set with the codename of “Reiher”. Actually, the entire facility was employed in all aspects of the construction of this system from the ultra-short wave technology itself to the relays, amplifiers, transformers, condensers, transmitters and antennae. One of the production plants was specifically designated “Y Werk”. The Reiher system itself was intended for use in Russia, which gives an idea of its intended range. Technical specifications of the system are given in the report.
Of huge interest is the fact that this system was separate from existing systems, secret, long-range, and destined for high-value, secret underground installations such as “Burg”. We will return to Burg later, with other rumors.
The U-boat reference in the first paragraph is of interest in light of Joseph Farrell’s research into the “Coler coil” in his book Reich of the Black Sun (pp. 245ff.).
With a Paperclip common denominator, maybe Nick’s find isn’t so weird after all.
