The Largest Biological Experiment

The gist of the message is that the use of mobile/cell phones poses such a great risk to our brains and overall well-being, that we should all stop using them immediately, which may well be the case, but such is reliance on these gadgets in everyday life, that getting people to cease using them would be well-nigh impossible. However, you don't even need to have a phone to be prone to the harmful microwave radiation that's emitted into our brains, apparently causing actual physiological damage, as the numerous relay towers and masts that punctuate the skyscape, are also constantly dowsing us with irradiating harm.


I'm actually more interested in the esoteric neurological effects of EM exposure. One of the most original UFO books of the last two decades is "UFOs: Psychic Close Encounters -- The Electromagnetic Indictment" by Albert Budden, who hypothesizes that EM "hotspots" can result in a variety of troubling "paranormal" experiences, including evident "hauntings" and -- you guessed it -- alien abduction. (It's worth remembering that ufologist Jacques Vallee has credited genuine UFOs with emitting microwaves, which may play a similar hallucinogenic role in some close encounters. And debunkers are fond of citing the work of Dr. Michael Persinger, whose experiments with EM fields and human subjects suggest a link between the "sense of presence" associated with altered states of consciousness and seismic stress.)





Given that radiation like that used by cellphones can infringe on human consciousness -- and I think it's very probable it can -- we have to question our role in this emerging electronic ecology. If John Keel is correct, and we share the planet with "ultraterrestrials" who occupy higher realms of an unseen "superspectrum," one wonders if we could be upsetting the superspectral hierarchy by marinating our world in a stew of microwaves.

Conversely, maybe the advent of widespread cell communication is analogous to the role of fungi according to Terence McKenna. Instead of viewing ubiquitous cell towers as intrusive and harmful, maybe we should look at them as totems through which we might communicate with unseen intelligences. (I've always thought it interesting that so many UFO sightings have been witnessed over military installations with advanced radar technology; some alleged UFO occupants have even ventured the idea that radar somehow interferes with the operation of their craft -- one possible explanation for the Roswell incident.)

In any case, there appears to be a link between artificial radiation and "alien" visitors. And since some UFOs possess documented microwave properties, we're left with the possibility that we're only now (inadvertently) acknowledging their arrival. What this means in the long-term is anyone's guess. Maybe, by inundating the skies with our collective voice, we're offering the "ultraterrestrials" a sort of Trojan Horse -- a technological substrate through which they can penetrate our reality with unprecedented ease.

snip "I've always thought it interesting that so many UFO sightings have been witnessed over military installations with advanced radar technology;"

I wonder if there's some parallel here with Heisneberg's Uncertainty Pinciple, which as I understand it, says something like quantum or sub-atomic particles wink in and out of existence, and only appear in our dimension when directly observed by us - could there be some element of ufos appearing on radar screens precisely because they are being 'observed' by the radar - maybe the same applies to photos taken when no object was visible in the sky or background, but subsequently appeared in the developed picture, again merely because it had been unintentionally 'observed', either by the camera, the photographer, or both, while the same may be vaguely similar in human one-on-one live sightings, i.e. bringing ufos/beings into view/existence in this dimesnion, even through subconcious observation, possibly just by looking in the direction of the object is sometimes enough to snap it into visibilty - though I'm not sure how any of this would explain objects or beings disappearing as suddenly as they had appeared.

Not sure if any of that makes sense, so please feel free to delete if deemed appropriate!

Tim--

UFOs really do behave like some liminal quantum phenomenon. I've written a couple essays touching on this angle that I'll probably end up splicing into my "crypto" book in one form or another.

One of the problems with quantum obseravtion is the Wigner paradox: Who observes the observer? At what point is the quantum wave function ultimately collapsed?

Wigner thought "God" might be the answer!

From the original article: In 2002, Gro Harlem Brundtland, then head of the World Health
Organization, told a Norwegian journalist that cell phones were banned from her office in Geneva because she personally becomes ill if a cell phone is brought within about four meters (13 feet) of her.


I personally become (a bit) ill if I even see someone in traffic driving and doing the yadda yadda yadda bit on their handheld device. Only I think my reaction has very little to do with EMR!

I only recently became a cellphone user -- and that's because Sprint gave me a cool phone and free unlimited airtime and downloads. I use it sparingly, and never for more than a few minutes at a time -- although I'm addicted to the MP3 player.
