Armies of the Future: AI Bots or “Enhanced” Humans?

In this week’s edition of Mind Hack, Jeff DeRiso discusses an effort by the Army to train their autonomous combat robots to better recognize targets.  He also talks about DARPA’s Targeted Neuroplasticity Training program, and the effort to digitally “upload” skills to the brain.  Also, a sinister-sounding invention by a mysterious inventor, and an approach to treating depression using fMRI feedback.

    • Curious, CueWave, a corporation in name only. 1500 shares listed at a price of $0.00?

      The company name is suggestive of the mind control info you found.

      Mad scientists meet Darpa – they all fall head over heels in love.

  2. You covered a lot of ground in this video, Jeff. As always, topical and provocative.

    I don’t know what kind of scientist gets into bed with the military.

    Loos – according to Ancestry, Hendricus (Henk) Gerardus Loos was born 1925 in Amsterdam. His wife is Jansje. In 1952 he entered NYC from Rotterdam. His destination written in as ‘Calif. Inst. of H Technology’ Pasadena California’. Caltech? Nationality – Netherlands. He arrived Quebec Sep 1954 on the Groote Beer. Dec 1954 he is in Los Angeles applying for naturalization. In the US Public Records Index he is listed as Dr Loos. In 1956 he flew into NYC from Amsterdam with his wife on Royal Dutch Airlines (now KLM).

    If you Google search “Dr H G Loos’ you will find a few entries. Also under ‘Dr Hendric Loos’. “Dr Henry Loos’. Shockingly he is connected to DARPA, which is why he has a low profile.

    Amygdala – NLP (Neurolinguistic programming) is being used on the Amygdala for cases of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The amygdala is deemed a dumb intelligence. ie. the only reality it knows is what you tell it. As far as it’s concerned your thoughts ARE reality. Too many anxious thoughts or intense stress can send the Amygdala into creating its own feeback loop, creating the symptoms of CFS long after the crisis has passed. I guess depression would have a similar aetiology in that context.

    Resonance is considered to be a viable healer. It is suggested by some that it was in use in ancient civilizations. Tesla understood resonance and the properties of the Earth. He discovered something the ancients knew long ago. Well over a hundred years later and we’re still burning fossil fuels and covering up nuclear leaks.

    Do I want to live in a world where everything fixed by a pill is replaced by everything fixed with a machine? No.

    Interesting how the medical profession continues to dismiss the placebo effect. Hello, science world? Large clue hiding in plain sight right in front of you.

    That neuroplasticity headset type tech will definately be used for manipulating people. How did it effect the ability for critical thought?

    I missed the last two episodes (need to watch them), but could you focus on all the ways in which this technology can be used to increase suggestibility and reduce critical thinking, and the ways it can be used to skew emotional response? Imagine if they start using it to get people to enjoy horrible things like watching torture…. they could cause society to accept their ways and perspectives by inducing a sort of happy pavlovian response. I bet that is already happening.

    Also, could you cover that crap I keep reading about subliminals like the Disney movie stuff. Truthstream did a vid on it (which I need to watch) titled “Mass hynosis and trigger words” on May 11.

    It really disturbs me. Sometimes I notice this crap in pop culture, but sometimes I wonder if I am being gaslighted or just over reacting. Discuss how they are using all this crap to steer society please. Because that is the ultimate use of all this stuff. That Gillis Flannigan dude is interesting. I wonder if they started using that crap on him to discredit him by changing his image.
