Is Brain to Computer Technology to be the New Terrorist Weapon?

Q. Why have I written this?

A. Because I care about our World and the National and Global Security that is needed to ensure that mankind has a future. I perceive the somewhat ‘strange’ attitude of the United States and U.K Security Organisations such as NATO and the CIA/MI5/6 to the ‘Runaway Effect’ of Brain 2 Computer Technology to be a liability to both National and Global Security. I can find no logical reason to explain their lack of understanding of what will if not controlled become a threat to Global Security other than they have been ordered to ignore its development – which in itself a contravention of their own Statutory Requirements to safeguard National Security.

Runaway Effect. An inbuilt organic exponential growth which accelerates as it extrapolates to the point where it becomes a critical mass whose growth cannot be that of a controlled technology but that of an uncontrollable virus.


Brain to Computer Communication is a fact. It is not Science Fiction. We can no longer consign it to the realm of ‘tin hats’ and ‘fanciful imagination’. Research into deciphering the electrical impulses from the mind began in 1875 by Richard Caton who was a British physician. Canton was crucial in discovering the electrical nature of the brain and laid the groundwork for Hans Berger to discover Alpha wave activity in the human brain.


Hitler and the Nazis also carried out the same research. At the end of WW2 1600 Nazi Scientists involved in weapons and associated research went to America with Operation PaperClip . Some were involved in mind research.


Operation Mk Ultra was the CIA’s Public incursion into Brain to Computer Research. The operation began in the early 1950s, was officially sanctioned in 1953, was reduced in scope in 1964, further curtailed in 1967, and officially halted in 1973.

In July 2017  the U.S.A. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA awarded $65 million to develop the perfect, tiny two-way brain-computer interface. That is of course what we are told. No doubt the reality is that in 1875 Governments and Military learned of the possibility of being able to read and control the mind. It is highly likely that Governments and other interested parties have been investing in Brain 2 Computer Research from as far back as the early 1900’s. DARPA Brain Initiative is contracted out to the Private Sector. What are the safeguards in place to ensure a hostile agency, Country or Group have access?


Q. How far advanced is Brain 2 Computer Technology?

A. Nobody knows and that is why the CIA and other Nation’s Security Services must conduct an urgent audit of its progress. Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to be more dangerous than nuclear weapons. Why? Because it can be used to control nuclear weapons systems.


In the Research Laboratory the Technology may be hardwired. However, in the real world of Technology Criminal Exploitation a Developed B2C Technology could be  transmitted with an implant that was fitted to a U.S.A.F Fighter Pilot when he was asleep, in a hospital on a operating theatre, when he was in a crowd, when he put his clothing on or when his wife could fit it whilst he slept.  The implants are so small that they can barely be seen by the naked eye. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to come to the conclusion that at some point in time the B2C Technology will become organic and children will be born with it. All wired up, ready to be used and controlled.


Recently Elon Musk has invested in NeuraLink to also develop Brain 2 Computer Technology. My concern is that as we have not fully developed the Brain’s Capability all his research will do is prevent the natural development of the mind and increase the security risk of Brain 2 Computer Technology. Once a person is implanted with a connection that connection can then be accessed by anybody including those who may not operate in the best interests of National and Business Security. AI is not capable of original thought and never will be. AI will never be able to produce a new idea. Only the Human Brain has imagination.


The National Security Agency website states ‘Defending our Nation. Securing the Future.’ Really NSA ? Type in the words ‘ Dangers of Computer to Brain Technology’ into the NSA website search engine. What do you get – nothing. No warnings, no discussion not even a mention that somebody in your next business meeting could be ‘connected’ or your next Navy Seals Operation could be Wi-Fi’d to the enemy.


Q. How many People since 1875 to present day (2017) did not and have not survived  Research into Brain 2 Computer Technology?


Q. What has happened to all  those who have been experimented on?


Q. Is it possible to encrypt the information flow from the mind and ensure it is not  accessed by those who are not acting in the best interests of National and/or Global Security?

A. No it is not.


Q. Is Brain 2 Computer Technology a massive research program being undertaken by many Governments all over the World and which has no safeguards?


That is the problem. Our ‘intellectually challenged’ Governments do not appear to understand the ‘nightmare’ of what they developing and spending $millions and $millions on. The nightmare of Brain to Computer Technology is that is able to be used by anybody with a computer and the software for receiving and transmitting information from the Brain – and for many in our morally deficient world everything has a Price and many including ISIS and Al Qaeda as well as Criminals will pay it.


When the Commander of a United States Navy of the Ohio Class fitted with active strategic thermonuclear warheads next goes to the dentist and is put under could somebody insert a computer to brain implant into him? He would never know. Would an Intel Handler at R.A.F Northwood, Pine Gap in Australia, The Pentagon or GCHQ know? Were Intel handlers at any of these Security Installations checked for a developed Computer 2 Brain Technology in the last 24 hours, 48 hours, last week, last month, last year? Ever? Is there a Research Group carrying out Brain 2 Computer Technology Development who has access to Security Facilities?


The Brain 2 Computer Technology cannot and must not be allowed to be developed ad-hoc. Governments must ensure they know who is developing it and where and at what stage the development is at.

Personally I believe it all to be a waste of time and money. It has no benefit to mankind. Its only use is control and intrusion. But regardless of my opinion as to its real benefits to the progress of mankind the Security Implications are not merely an opinion. They are dangerously very real.

Brain 2 Computer Technology transmits visual, audio and mind information in binary form it can be accessed by anybody before it gets to the receiver . A bit like Wi-Fi is hacked into. Who has it fitted. Do you?

Warning: My urgent and immediate advice to those in Government, the Senior Military and the CIA/MI5/6 is to immediately audit and verify all research and all personnel in all fields of the Sciences and Behavioural Research who are or may be involved in Brain 2 Computer Research. This is necessary in order to account for the propagation and development of brain to computer technology. I believe this to be of the highest priority in order to maintain National & Global Security of those Nations with have nuclear and chemical weapons.


This is the summary of concerns listed in Wikipedia of Brain to Computer Interface.

Ethical considerations
Important ethical, legal and societal issues related to brain-computer interfacing are:
Obtaining informed consent from people who have difficulty communicating,
risk/benefit analysis.
Shared responsibility of BCI teams (e.g. how to ensure that responsible group decisions can be made).
The consequences of BCI technology for the quality of life of patients and their families.
Side-effects (e.g. neurofeedback of sensorimotor rhythm training is reported to affect sleep quality).
Personal responsibility and its possible constraints (e.g. who is responsible for erroneous actions with a neuroprosthesis).
Issues concerning personality and personhood and its possible alteration.
Blurring of the division between human and machine..
questions of research ethics that arise when progressing from animal experimentation to application in human subjects.
Selective enhancement and social stratification.


These are my own concerns:

Mind-reading and privacy in Government, Business, Banking and Military.
Mind-control by allowing Terror Groups or Criminal Groups to Control and Direct.
Use of the technology in advanced interrogation techniques by governmental authorities,
Control of all Communication to and from the media.
Memory Loss and the development of only ‘controlled memory’ as the end of Free Thought.
Organic Development by insertion of bio engineered control system to allow complete control of brain electron circuits.
A new form of human physics which transforms mind motor neuron control to manmade body components whilst retaining the human form for structure.
Replacement of key individuals in Government and Military with Human Robot Controlled Humanoids.
The Eventual Replacement of Mankind as ‘Free Thought’ in order to save it from its own destruction by a Power Elite who seek their own Survival and Destiny through Total Control.
Total Power controls absolutely and must control all that is capable of Free Thought if it is to survive.


Summary.

Time and events will prove if my warning was right or wrong. However, can we as People allow a Brain 2 Technology be developed which ‘Creates mankind in the image of whoever controls the Technology’? I describe Brain 2 Computer Technology as a virus. Its rate of development is now exponential, it’s fitting to minds is unrestricted, its potential for control by a Group or Power who do not want democracy is only restricted by the amount they want to pay for its developed use. The danger of Brain to Computer Technology to the future of mankind can be measured in the megatons of TNT per metric ton of nuclear weapons.

What should be our greatest concern is that our Governments and their Security Agencies seem to be unaware of the dangers of a rapidly developing technology which has the real potential to access any mind anywhere at anytime. From the Nuclear Command systems of a submarine with nuclear weapons to the cockpit of a B52 Bomber armed with nuclear weapons Brain 2 Computer Technology has the potential to access every mind everywhere.

Does anybody care?

Is the USA partly responsible for the growth of ISIS?

https://www.quora.com/profile/Desmond-Last

I think we all are. We have all allowed ourselves to ignore the growing disparity between the region of the Middle East and the Western World. We choose to ignore the way in which the West has manipulated the Region for its own benefit.

ISIS was always going to happen under any name and even without ISIS misuse of the ‘Word of God’.

That does not excuse the ISIS brutal killing of innocent people, particularly children.

However, if we want to defeat the root cause of terrorism then we must defeat that which causes it; we must ensure human rights are equal for all.

ISIS have to be defeated. They have chosen a road which will kill anybody who stands in their way.

A lot depends on the Taliban and America. Time will tell.

Songs for Change Desmond Last

These are the lyrics to the songs I have written that one day the United Nations General Assembly, the Security Council and the Torture Committee will hear as part of a testimony to a motion that seeks Justice for cruel and inhumane acts supported and allowed by a Prime Minister(s) and President(s) – Time, the Truth and the Law will decide the Justice.

Dying in Afghanistan

He lay there in the dust and sand

He bloodied red with his once life

An American Marine so far from his home

But with his Nation at his side

Afghanistan now his lasting memorial

And that of so many others too

His comrades they stood in silent salute

Their tears cried out …Why?

Why Mr President are we still dying in Afghanistan?

Mr President how many more Marines have to die

How many more Marines Mr President have to die in Afghanistan

Before there is an end to the war in Afghanistan?

 

In the hills stood a Taliban

His tears of pain for his daughter

For she lay alongside the Marine

Both dead from his IED – an IED that he had layed

In the hills a Taliban stood alone

His tears a flood of pain

 

When President Trump and Taliban

Will there be an end to the war in Afghanistan

When President Trump will the dying in Afghanistan end

When will there be a Peace in Afghanistan


 

Somewhere in Afghanistan

Somewhere in Afghanistan

A Marine from Georgia USA

Did die for his Nation

After almost two decades of war, is Afghanistan better or worse?

HRUK12

This is my answer to the Q on Quora.

With over one million Afghanistan men women and children killed by the conflict which began in 1979 and has never ended it is the unmistakable conclusion that we owe the people of Afghanistan a Peace.

There are no ifs and buts. America, Russia, China and Pakistan have proven themselves chillingly unwilling to provide the forum and the system to ensure that Peace and the fight against terrorism can co-exist.

It is no good ignoring the Taliban. They are part of the history and are part of the future of Afghanistan.

ISIS are not – they are unwanted guest of both the people of Afghanistan and the Taliban. ISIS cannot continue roam the Middle East trying to find a people onto which to force its mistaken culture of God.

If ISIS want an Islamic State they they should form one with the people not against the will of the people.

However, if America does not peruse a dialogue of co-operation with the Taliban then the result will be an ISIS, Taliban and Al Qaeda trifecta of insurgency which could result in a Terrorist Superpower.

Peace in Afghanistan is long overdue for the People who have endured the longest conflict in modern times.

Are they better off? No.

Has President Trump changed the way we think about politics forever?


HRUK12


This is my answer to this Question taken from Quora.

Not yet but there is a mood of change and President Trump is creating it. However,  just because he uses Twitter and does not feel constrained by Political Correctness does not make him a good President.

It is what you are able to achieve for your people that produces a change in Politics. Many Politicians come and go. We sigh with wilted expectation at yet another cheery sound byte at a school or construction site somewhere.

We listen to the spin and the promises and we walk away with resigned acceptance.

We watch the lows of internal corruption and then we witness the inevitable exit of yet another ‘all promise but no deliver’ politician – who never actually met with any of us only their own carefully choreographed supporters.

Then along comes President Trump. I was so enthusiastic about the prospect of change I campaigned for him in marginal key swing states to coincide with Obama and Clinton public meetings. By that I mean I sent out emails supporting President Trump from the United Kingdom where I live. I even wore my President Trump 2016 Campaign Baseball Cap.

Has President Trump made me view politics in a different way? Not yet. But I do say this:

‘I speak with a dim but beating soul of optimism when I say see a light and it doth hath the possibility of a brightness with intent. The people to lead out of a once darkening gloom’.

I used to say that I would not support any Political Party and I still do not. But I do support President Trump’s undoubted enthusiasm for the right of a Nation to choose its own destiny and for its people to make that destiny their fate and promise.

I am beginning to see President Trump’s change to Politics. First the collection of dynamic suport. Then the Strategy – the December USA National Strategy. Then the confirmation of the movement – the State of the Union Speech – I liked that he involved people in the Speech. Then slowly moving into an Economic and Industrial Strategy but all the time communicating to and involving the people.

As President Trump said in the State of the Union Speech it is the People who made America and it is the People who will make America great again.

Yes if President Trump has changed anything it is that I feel I can write to him and my letter will not be thrown in the bin – I have had two replies from the White House.

President Obama, and Prime Ministers May, Turnbull, Cameron, Rudd, Gillard and Abbott have never replied neither has Corbyn.

Are we able to put ideas to President Trump and will he listen and engage? Maybe. Time will tell. But there is a light…………………

Why am I ignored by Theresa May but not by President Trump?

HRACT1

Why is it that when I write to Theresa May I get no response. Even when I wrote about the way my 88 year old Mum was treated in a Care Home – Zero. But when I write to President Trump the White House responds.

 

What military options are there for the US on N. Korea and will they all lead to direct conflict with China as well?

truth

This is my answer to this Q on Quora.

The Military Options may exist on paper but it is fair more likely that they will continue to remain in their role as feasible deterrents rather than positive actions.

Kim Jong Un is not a stupid man. He knows that any conflict with the U.S.A will result in the destruction of his fragile economy. Troops need to eat and they need fuel. Neither will be available once a conflict with the U.S begins.

However, Kim Jong Un has decided to take a shortcut to the membership of the World’s SuperStates and in doing so has to ensure that at some point he sits down with President Trump.

There are over 26 million North Koreans and each one has the potential to buy a product or a service from the U.S.

America’s’ Military has never failed in their duty to the U.S and the World but it is America’s Economy that has made America great. President Trump is well aware that Peace has a Profit and War only a loss.

China has continued to ensure that it sits on the fence – as usual. Nikki Haley the American Ambassador the U.N has been right to remind all the members of the Security Council of their legal and moral responsibility in regard to North Korea. China would never get involved in a conflict with the U.S. They know President Trump would stop all exports to the U.S. They have too much to lose. However, that does not mean that they would not use a display of force should it be required.

What is needed now is for President Trump to publicly show that America is ready to engage North Korea in talks which is no doubt happening with the recent reporting of ‘diplomatic speak’.

Nobody will win in any war with North Korea. The North Koreans will fight to the death. The Pacific region needs stability and it is up to China to broker the talks between North Korea and the United States.

Kim Jong Un is on a deadline. He will not be able to use the nuclear big stick for ever – his economy is unable to support such a large military expenditure. His population needs feeding and though they are loyal they will want more than military parades and anti-America rhetoric to satisfy their growing thirst for knowledge and world involvement.

Whoever sits down with Kim Jong Un will be able to ensure the massive expansion of the North Korean Economy, which will follow any negotiated agreement, is of benefit to both sides of the negotiating table

President Trump has to ensure it will be America who benefit and not Russia or China. It could also be President Trump’s worst nightmare – Iran, who engages with North Korea in negotiations to halt his nuclear weapons expansion.

In an ideal World the U.S. Russia and China would all be involved in talks with North Korea. However, as Aleppo, Syria and Climate Change have illustrated our World Leaders are not the brightest kids on the block.
