In May 1982, Elisabeth and Russell Targ held a workshop on psychic phenomena for twenty-five professionals. This was part of a program with Stanislav Grof, who was studying non-chemical alternatives for altered states of consciousness. The Targs’ goal was to show that psychic experiences did not require an altered state. (Targ, Russell and Harary, Keith, Mind Race, Villard Books, 1984, pg 99)
Grof served briefly as the branch chief of the operational unit of Star Gate from around 1982 or 83 until he resigned in summer of 1993
Electromagnetic weapons for law enforcement use in Great Britain: A 10-30 Hz strobe light which can produce seizures, giddiness, nausea, and fainting was developed by Charles Bovill of the now defunct British firm, Allen International. Addition of sound pulses in the 4.0 – 7.5 Hz range increases effectiveness, as utilized in the Valkyrie, a “frequency” weapon advertised in British Defense Equipment Catalogue until 1983. The squawk box or sound curdler uses two loudspeakers of 350 watt output to emit two slightly different frequencies which combine in the ear to produce a shrill shrieking noise. The U.S. National Science Foundation report says there is “severe risk of permanent impairment of hearing.” (From“Electropollution” by Kim Besley, citing the Manchester City Council Police Monitoring Unit document.)
Air Force review of biotechnology:
“Currently available data allow the projection that specially generated radiofrequency radiation (RFR) fields may pose powerful and revolutionary antipersonnel military threats.Electroshock therapy indicates the ability of induced electric current to completely interrupt mental functioning for short periods of time, to obtain cognition for longer periods and to restructure emotional response over prolonged intervals.
“… impressed electromagnetic fields can be disruptive to purposeful behavior and may be capable of directing and/or interrogating such behavior. Further, the passage of approximately 100 milliamperes through the myocardium can lead to cardiac standstill and death, again pointing to a speed-of-light weapons effect.
“A rapidly scanning RFR system could provide an effective stun or kill capability over a large area.” (From Final Report on Biotechnology Research Requirements for Aeronautical Systems Through the Year 2000. AFOSR-TR-82-0643, vol 1, and vol 2, 30 July 1982.)
