“God’s Jury” and the Modern Inquisitorial Process of Creating Modern Service Security Surveillance Systems with Right Wing Dark Money 

Edward Sorel’s illustration from the cover of “God’s Jury” by Cullen Murphy

A few years back, well maybe more than just a few years back, my dad was still alive. I was greeted at the lunch meat counter at my local Ewing Shop Rite by an old acquaintance. Will call him “Joe.” He was a former acquaintance from a former lifetime.

But in order for you to understand the whole picture of my story, I need to explain a few things. The time period this “meeting” occurred in was a few years after a sexual assault I reported to my local prosecutor’s office. I was sexually assaulted by a person I was familiar with and with whom I trusted. Following the tragic and sudden death of a close relative, I relapsed into drug use again after 5 years of sobriety. After this sudden death, I had begun to work out a lot to ward off the anxiety I felt about not being accepted by my family. As a result, I lost a lot of weight. One night, while out with one of my “friends,” my “friend” kept encouraging me to use again. I resisted attempts several times and, then, at the last moment, before leaving the bar, I gave in. This was the point of a trajectory.

When women are sexually assaulted while actively using drugs or alcohol as part of their lifestyle choice, they are usually recommended to a rehabilitation center. A few years after my sexual assault, I was forced into treatment. I then made a conscious decision to never use street drugs again and to distance myself as far as I could from the people I had previous associations with. That was in 2006. Although I would still imbibe alcohol a few times a week, I had come to a point in which I could actively imagine a better lifestyle for myself, free from my former associations.

Then, one day at the lunch meat counter, “Joe” tried to strike up a conversation with me. He asked me about a former boyfriend I had dated while I was between the ages of 19 and 20 years old. Let’s call him “Dean.” I was very cold and stand-offish to “Joe” because he had instructed “Dean” to push my head into a couch chair and hold it there one day while “Dean” and I were in the middle of an argument. Because of Joe’s guidance, Dean physically assaulted me. Because of this I always viewed “Joe” as a predator and most likely a psychopath. Who encourages a guy to physically assault a woman? Aren’t men supposed to respect a lady? I don’t believe anything that comes out of this man’s mouth. Joe was also with a woman at the lunch meat counter who had light reddish-blonde hair, and I believe light-colored eyes although my memory is a little faulty. Joe kept referencing this woman with glances for guidance from here. Joe apologized to me and said he truly didn’t have any memory of those specific events. He said he was “sorry” and asked if “I would forgive him?” I looked at him like he was a plague of locus come to destroy my crops. I said, “No.” I couldn’t care less if he could not remember those events from that day or not, and I told him in no uncertain terms, to basically, “FUCK OFF!” I told him I had been so far removed from my former lifestyle I used to entertain in my early adulthood that I didn’t want to know any of those people anymore. Recovery is about avoiding people, places, and things and also because I believed that probably half of my former associations were either psychopaths or sociopaths. People who had been ill-informed about the purpose of life, just like myself. The lifestyle I had led, active in the drug culture and bar scene, no longer plagued me simply because I actively chose recovery and now preferred a healthy lifestyle. I told him I was healthy and a practicing vegan and exercising daily. He then told me that he had “cancer” and was “dying” and “would I please forgive him.” This is the classic ploy of psychopath/sociopath. A “feel sorry for me” game card pulled from the trickster’s bag of tricks. They feign some type of “struggle” and try to win you to their side through sympathy. I’ve seen it a million times.

I believe Joe’s occupation is as a day contractor, although I’m not certain of this. But, in any event, why would I grant a liar forgiveness? I could feel the aversion toward Joe and Dean reverberate in every part of my body. I had allowed myself to be manipulated by men who were rotten and no good for me. Joe had asked if “I wanted to see Dean again.” I thought to myself, “What the fuck do you think?” I replied, “No.”

Honestly, I might have never come to this point in my recovery unless I had been raped which ended the trajectory events, a trajectory that started with my relapse in 2003. A distasteful and bitter pill to swallow; it truly was a revelation that unveiled itself before my eyes. It had somehow pulled all those dark puzzle pieces together to show me that what I had been doing was seriously wrong, even though I secretly knew this deep down inside of me. Such are the lies we tell ourselves. I believed that “my drug use was okay” because “everybody I knew was doing it.” I had even heard of some professional doctors who did it. And besides, these people were my “friends.” Certainly, a friend wouldn’t victimize me. Would they?

Of all the Creepypasta, this story could make one of the best urban legends although it is far from being a myth. The story where the girl who believes it’s okay to get drunk or use street drugs because everyone, she is with, is also doing it. And so, she must somehow be “safe” is far more common than you think. The myth that “surely these people would “respect” me because we commonly identify with one other” is never a certainty. In fact, when considering the nature of man, it is mostly not true. How could a bunch of people that don’t know how to respect themselves be informed about how to respect others? So, my cold and stand-offish stance towards Joe was a psychic defense elicited by a predator who had presented himself to me. I was trying to stay safe.

Shortly after this, my electronic and psychotronic targeting and torture began. I became known as a Targeted Individual. How does this play into the possible reasons for my targeting? Honestly, I don’t know, simply because there are so many other events to consider in my timeline as well.

The most important point I want to make regarding my electronic targeting, psychotronic torture, and group (gang) stalking is this. Over the platform Quora.com, when I discussed my experiences as a Targeted Individual. I was greeted with a response from a man, presumably white, who informed me “it’s because you can’t imagine something better for yourself.” What the fuck? Really? That’s the reason!? The reason I deserve to be tortured and punished!? This means the reason for my targeting is rooted in difference. It is rooted in the difference of identity. It is rooted in the things that divide us and not join us together. The targeting implies that I am not favored because I don’t belong to the right “social grouping.” This is an age-old phenomenon that has gone by many names throughout human history. Most noted for these horrors, based in difference of identity, were the Jewish and Christian holy wars from the Bible (Pagels, 1995), witch trials (Hill, 2002) and other religious inquisitions as well as the many genocides that have taken place over the ages (Santner, 1990). We could look to more modern events like what happened in Charlottesville Virginia. Where on August 11–12, 2017 a Unite the Right Rally took place. Many far-right supporters of white supremacy actively protested including the groups alt-right, neo-Confederates, neo-fascists, white nationalists, neo-Nazis, Klansmen, and various right-wing militias. As a result, conflict, and fights broke out when counter-protestors supporting the proposed removal of the statue of General Robert E. Lee from Charlottesville’s former Lee Park. Later a counter-protestor was killed by rally participants who purposefully and willfully drove his car into the crowd (Berreby, 2018, pp.48–49). It is far more than a science of race. It is a science of psychoanalysisobject relations, and identity. The “feverish pitch” that ensues after the realization of a collective narcissistic wound suffered, has marked historical events like the end of World War I and the events that spoked the Charlottesville race riots. Facts tying events of white supremacy and a crisis of white masculinity, to a prior time in American presidential history, when a black Senator from Illinois took the oval office which was immediately followed by a fascist leader.

“In a review of Cullen Murphy’s book, Edward Peters writes, “Murphy ponders ‘what . . . any inquisition really is: a set of disciplinary practices targeting specific groups, codified in law, organized systematically, enforced by surveillance, exemplified by severity, sustained over time, backed by institutional power, and justified by a vision of the one true path. Considered that way, the Inquisition is more accurately viewed not as a relic, but as a harbinger.’ In this sense then, Jane Mayer, author of “Dark Money” writes, ‘Cullen Murphy finds the ‘inquisitorial impulse’ alive, and only too well, in our [modern] world.’”

Subnote: My original studies began with an investigation into religious philosophy as I was educated in a Roman Catholic school system for 13 years. Later I would take up Bible study in my young adult life, between the ages of 23–25. As a result of my early education, I was influenced to pursue readings in religious philosophy as conflict is often rooted in differences of religious identity (Capp, 2009).

The Riddle of Group (Gang) Stalking and Uncovering Some of its “Secret Peculiarities”: A forensic analysis of one individual case study

This post provides a bit more in terms of a forensic analysis of feminine infantile narcissism and object love and its consequential resulting psychopathologies and healthy object selection in the development of normal self-esteem. But more importantly, address the question I left hanging at the bottom of my last post which is:

“How does Freud’s riddle of femininity and the “secret peculiarities” of feminine psychopathology fit into the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults? HINT: knowing age is a determinant to violence even petty passive-aggressive violence

In my previous post, I wrote about some of the “secret peculiarities” of female psychopathologies and some of these characteristics being rooted in immature feminine growth and development. Freud noted there were distinctly evidenced specific traits attributed to femininity such as high degrees of narcissism and a more important desire for them to be loved than to love and this affected their object selection. Otto Kernberg, a psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry known for his psychoanalytic theories on borderline personality organization and narcissistic pathology, believed normal infantile narcissism in the development of the role the self plays in one’s life is dependent on two things. First, the affirmation of others, and second, the acquisition of desirable and appealing objects which later develops into normal healthy self-esteem. These object selections, as an example, maybe a young girl’s desire for sports/weight training (development for acquiring a metaphorical phallus through competitive competition) or a young girl’s desire for fashion design. Faulty developmental influences can contribute to feminine psychopathologies and persistent egocentricity which contributes to her repetition drive in assaulting others. As an example of such faulty developmental object choices, we might observe a young girl’s desire to become a gang member, part of an organized criminal group where she will receive affirmations regarding her “value to the group”, where worth is determined by the level of violence one is capable of carrying out and/or the selection of drugs and alcohol as substances with which to deal and distribute. This abnormal choice in object selection is often witnessed in cases of parental neglect, abuse, and poverty. Theories central to the analysis of such feminine psychopathologies are primarily Freudian as well as belonging to other ego developmental theories pertinent to psychology like Otto Kernberg and Heinz Kohut and Kleinian object relation theory as well as other object relations perspectives such Donald Winnicott, Robert Fairbain, and John Bowlby.

Since attachments are never fixed as the human psyche is malleable through natural aging and development, the possibility to become unhinged from the arrival at a fixed and normal state as a result of academic work-study and mourning life losses, is always a lurking possibility for all of us, and to which the psychopath knows very well as do psychoanalysts and psychiatrists. We know this because of the pioneering work that has been done and which is central to integrating postwar ego psychology. That is to say, the effects of trauma on the patient and the role trauma plays in undoing otherwise normal healthy growth, healthy attachment, and development. The developmental psychology of the self and the object self in relation to other objects in the environment, under normal conditions, should remain fixed and stable. Under abnormal conditions, a normal stable self can be unraveled and fall into patterns of violence and addiction. This is what postwar psychoanalytic has taught us and to which I believe the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking is being deployed.

I had posited a question at the end of my previous writing, Freud’s Riddle of Femininity and Some of the “Secret Peculiarities” of Female Psychopathologies,

“How does Freud’s riddle of femininity and the “secret peculiarities” of feminine psychopathology fit into the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted physical assaults? HINT: knowing age is a determinant to violence even petty passive-aggressive violence

We know from reading Shakespeare’s rather comical play, The Taming of the Shrew, the ever-present human desire to control others, especially the opposite Object sex, is an ever-present revolving theme throughout human history. And we know the importance from reading Goethe, the meaning in asking “Is man tempered enough to tame his thirst for power and glory?” This has been an age-old preponderance stretching as far back as classical antiquity wondered about by the fathers of philosophy. And we can surmise society will continue to be an ever-present danger from the psychopath operating in the appearance of a savior welding an electronic weapon with which to “cure the mind” for the purpose of grooming and “tailoring” human subjects’ behavior to their own will.

In my independent studies of psychoanalysis, I have uncovered two areas in psychology specific to detrimental outcomes resulting from side effects from Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assaults and psychotronic torture. First, unhinging a person’s Internal Locus of Control through repetitive shocks to the human body/mind (trauma). I have included a post link in the resource section below. And secondly, unhinging fixed object attachments through trauma. That is reversing Kernberg’s requirements for the healthy development of self-esteem and the anti-thesis goes like this: First, the disaffirmation of other through punitive punishments (electronic targeted physical assaults and psychotronic torture) and second, the relinquishing of healthy desirable, and appealing object choices and the encouragements in unhealthy object choices with which to develop unhealthy self-esteem and deteriorating sense of self. Such is the change in lifestyle spoken about in the narrative of the phenomenology of Group (Gang) Stalking and often a consequence and side effect to trauma (Sheridan, L; James, D.; & Roth, J., 2020).

Heinz Kohut wrote in 1966 the following:

“Although in theoretical discussions it will usually not be disputed that narcissism, the libidinal investment of the self, is per se neither pathological nor obnoxious, there exists an understandable tendency to look at it with a negatively toned evaluation as soon as the field of theory is left. Where such a prejudice exists, it is undoubtedly based on a comparison between narcissism and object love, and is justified by the assertion that it is the more primitive and the less adaptive of the two forms of libido distribution.” Heinz Kohut, (1966)

In this quote, Kohut is saying that when individuals witness a healthy libidinal interest in the investment of the self, there is usually a tendency to look negatively at it in toned evaluation as soon as we walk away from the study of psychoanalytic theory. In this light, let’s compare the libidinal investment of the self as taking care of their body through healthy diet and exercise (aerobics/weight lifting) as “primitive” and “less adaptive” in terms of “civilized living.” And here, we often hear such people called “lunks”, “jug heads”, or “meatheads”. Of course, referring to their lack of intelligence or aptitude a belief that contributes to the myth-making and hatred against aesthetic physical bodies. Whereas, if the libidinal investment of the self is made in terms of rigorous course work in academics and the development of social bonding within academic groups and where there is less concentration on physical work activity but more mental work in pursuit of higher intelligence (IQ) and a“civilized lifestyle” there seems to be more of an understanding because most people do not have the time nor the resources to dedicate their lives to creating the “perfect body.” When one was in high school, most people witnessed this as “the jock” versus “the nerd” wars. This says something about the juvenile level of narcissism involved in my experiences specifically related to Group (Gang) Stalking with electronic targeted assault and psychotronic torture; and Heinz Kohut says this prejudice regarding libidinal investments of the self exists, undoubtedly, as the result in one’s comparison between their own self narcissistic interests and object love choices against the backdrop of another’s narcissistic interests and object love choices. (And we wonder about the high degrees of narcissism found among Facebook users?) That is to say, that the libidinal investment of one’s own narcissism is in terms of their own peculiar object love selections which are then cast into the shadows of wondering doubt in their own psyche when placed next to others’ narcissistic interests and object love choice. As a result, the resulting insecurities and feelings of inferiority displace original feelings of a secure self, and this results in a display of negative toned evaluation of the Object other. Simply ask yourself what do you value and what are you intimidated by when placed up against other objects in your relational world? Do you value having the best-looking aesthetic physique (hard body), house, car or do you value having the best-looking brain (aptitude of intelligence — IQ)? In the case of Facebook users, when individuals preview other individual’s social media timeline may ask, “What is my worth?” “Do I, in fact, “measure up.” This is something we all do; doctors, lawyers, bus drivers, stay-at-home mothers, teachers, etc. However, those with faulty and abnormal self-esteem may react with aggressive recourse in attacking others. This has been my experience using Facebook and social media when one’s achievements are displayed in one’s timeline for all to see, it will inevitably affect someone who does not possess those same experiences. And someone who has not received adequate admiration and affirmations in their early childhood development may react with violence or passive-aggressive violence.

Here we can bring into the discussion Judith Butler’s writing The Force of Nonviolence: An ethico-political bind. Butler distills the problem down to a basic question of utility. The distillates materialize as one pre-emptive question and it is “What groups matter and what groups do not? Who are the valued individuals and who are nonvaluable and disposable? This simple question will, at times, seem to cloud even some of the best minds in psychoanalysis because it is as Jaques Lacan had written in 1978 in The Seminar of Jacques Lacan Book II“The images of man’s body is the principle of every unity he perceives in objects . . . all the objects of his world are always structured around the wondering shadows of his own ego.” And it was Freud who said, “The body is first and foremost a bodily ego (Freud, 1923).” This is true for both females and males alike. Although the attributes to a masculine shape differ from the attributes of a feminine shape, they are both important and valued shapes by the corresponding subjects with regard to their “peculiar” and valued characteristics.

In Bodies that Matter: On the discursive limits of “sex”, Judith Butler provides us with an original reformulation of the materiality of bodies, examining how the power of heterosexual hegemony forms the “matter” of bodies, sex, and gender and this holds true, at least as far as my personal experience with Group (Gang) Stalking, electronic targeted physical assault, and psychotronic torture. That is to say, there seems to be a very real heterosexual hegemony (ego and libidinal interest) with regard to certain cases of Group (Gang-Related) Stalking. Upon further analysis, we discover that bodies can move beyond the boundaries of their physical attributes and characteristics as in the quote “A man is more than just a man.” And for that matter, “A woman is more than just a woman.” Thereby placing the Objects outside of their realm of just another “sexualized body” with which to use and exploit. And what follows the negative toned evaluation of Other, oftentimes, ends up as acts of humiliation of Other rooted in the comparison of one’s own libidinal investment of one’s own narcissism in terms of one’s own peculiar object love selections against the backdrop of Other.

In a paper written in 2015 entitled, Ainsworth Strange Situation Procedure: The Origin of an Instrument, about Mary Ainsworth’s development of the instrument known as “The Strange Situation” in which childhood attachment was evaluated, the paper quotes; “So powerful is this technique in evoking behavioral changes that it is likely to be used with increasing frequency in studies of mother-infant interactions (Ainsworth & Bell, 1970).” In like view, we might also say something similar regarding the “instruments” (electronic devices) used in the phenomenon of Group (Gang) Stalking. We could then compare these instruments of group (gang) related stalking and classify them as weapons and/or counterphobic mechanical objects and consider the theories of Donald Winnicott in which the child’s use of counterphobic inanimate objects exist to help defend and protect the child from resulting fears surrounding separation anxiety felt from perceived feelings of abandonment in the child. This sets up a possible forensic analysis as a perpetrator with a possible borderline personality disorder.

The Proximate Cause and Effect of Outcomes Known as Distal Effect and How This May Help Explain Electronic Targeted Assaults

Image for post
An image of a diagram that describes the distal effects of pollution at the community level.

This story was originally published on May 11, 2019 over www.ProclivitiesPrincipleWisdom.wordpress.com which I am the administrator and to which it has since been updated.

Distal Effects — A proximate cause is an event that is closest to, or immediately responsible for causing, some observed result. This exists in contrast to a higher-level ultimate cause (or distal cause) which is usually thought of as the “real” reason something occurred.

In most crimes, we work backward from the outcome to those responsible. Money is missing from the till, and we look for the thief. Control often is literally hidden “behind closed doors.” In addition, as emphasized, coercive control as it pertains to domestic violence can also be difficult to detect because its means and effects merge with behaviors widely associated with women’s and children’s devalued status in personal life — being deferential, thrifty, thin, and unnoticed. Also, coercive control’s means and effects can merge with behaviors of the dominant cultural environment, giving meaning to “class.” For example, just like being too thrifty or thin is associated with some lower-class women’s behaviors, so too can being overweight, unemployed, sedentary, and dependent. These traits can be associated with “genetic inheritance” but they can also be the by-product of clandestine, invisible abuses that go unnoticed in the public eye.

The use of electromagnetic frequency against a subject/victim, a target for grooming behavior, can be very difficult to detect and uncover as well. First, electromagnetic frequency waves are invisible. Second, the onset of agitation or lethargy in a subject/victim may be observed but the reason for its occurrence misdiagnosed and attributed to something else entirely thereby allowing the unseen root cause to continue in the environment of the subject/victim. This obstruction, this ambiguity in the viewing details by those witnessing behaviors, can and will completely obliterate any truth to the proximate cause and effect thereby thwarting uncovering the real reason and meaning behind the abuse and render any meaning given to its proximate cause or distal effect invalid.

The strategic analysis assumes that our behavioral repertoires in these and other nontrivial facets of everyday life are relatively consistent, have identifiable temporal and spatial dimensions, and are unintelligible apart from the matrix of power in which they arise, the norms to which they respond, the relative benefits and sanctions they elicit in specific social and historical contexts, and the general consequences they effect. The proximate means and motives by which these strategies are implemented are a function of individual personalities, preferences, and situational variables as well as of their perceived efficacy, and the tactics selected tend to be spatially diffuse and highly individualized. Moreover, the pattern that makes these behaviors strategic is recognizable largely in retrospect. What marks behaviors as strategic is their collective reality, aggregate consequence, and the extent to which the link that joins this reality to its consequences is mediated by structural dimensions of the economy, polity, and civil life.

The subset of collective behaviors that encompasses how men and women constitute themselves as such, how they “do masculinity” and how they “do femininity” in a particular epoch at the range of sites where gender takes on its social meaning, including school, work, family, and intimate relationships. The substantive benefits/losses persons derive or experience from enacting these gender strategies constitute their “materiality.”

Thus, the “materiality of coercive control” refers to the tangible and symbolic visible results that men take advantage of, and to which are accrued from dominating and exploiting, not just their female partners, but those they come to gain power and control over. The substantive deprivations women and children suffer can be observed, but difficult to clearly define. Similar to the invisible electronic targeted assaults now happening to various individuals within the United States, this “materiality” can be defined as the benefits and losses that constitute what feminists have historically defined as the gender politic of a dominant male patriarchy. When the dominant gender enacts power over the subordinates, seldom does anyone consider electromagnetic frequency torture. This can mark the silencing imposed on individuality and the silencing of their sexuality as a part of their personhood and an ambiguous by-product of depravations inflicted as the result of this “materiality” in a dominant male politic. In the concept of materiality, its convention within the aspect of “auditing” within accounting practice relates to the importance or significance of an amount, the validity of a transaction, or discrepancy thereof. The objective of a financial audit is to enable the auditor to express an opinion as to whether or not the financial statements were prepared, in all material respects, to the conformity of a financial reporting framework such as in Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP).

“What marks control is not who decides, but who decides who will decide; who decides what, whether, and how delegated decisions are monitored; and the consequences of making ‘mistakes.’”

Evan Stark, Coercive Control

Similarly, the use of electromagnetic frequency signals to arbitrarily stimulate or sedate the human mind or attack the body of victims seek to perform a similar audit, albeit an audit related to behavior or forced acceptance of another person’s opinion and/or domain.

Men set out to realize their individual purpose in the world, most do not seek out to become controllers. Establishing mastery over another independent adult in personal life is complex and difficult work for which there are no guide books, not even for “dummies.” If it is recognized at all, the fact of domination in personal life is usually perceived only indirectly through signs of assertion, command, dependence, and subordination within relationships. We see a controlling or a demanding husband or relative or servile or timid wife, but not the lines of power that join the power of control to its command. These are subtle elements that have contributed to invisible empires, invisible empires that have flourished throughout history in terrorizing fashion over minority groups. The Free Masons and the Ku Klux Klan are just two clubs that conducted their activities in secret and these invisible secret societies have gone on to re-organize and re-shape the social order.

The Reason Behind Gang Stalking and the Targeted Individual: One Person’s Account and How Shame Plays into Its Obscurity and Confusion

Image for post
Image: Dart that made a “bullseye” hit and a dartboard is a favorite game played by many.

The most intense electronic targeting began after I was involved in a hit and run accident while driving under the influence of alcohol and opiates. This event may have rendered me a target (a test subject) by researchers at the hospital I was sent to. A local hospital is known for its advances in treating brain trauma, and the trauma of war can cause brain damage in the form of mental illnesses like PTSD. Are these rogue attacks the result of state interest surrounding in “curing” me of my “disease?” The proclivity of the human race, especially in a police surveillance state, tends to ascribe negative traits to individuals who possess individual differences and has always been an obstacle in achieving peaceful human relationships. Another aspect to this targeting was an intimate relationship I had with a close friend of mine that wasn’t sexual in any way but rather turned rouge friendship. I, my close friend, and her husband were all using drugs and alcohol, and when her husband turned on me and forced sex, which ended in sexual assault, my friendship dissolved. This may have been the point of inception for my targeting, but this would make my targeted experience a criminal conspiracy, not by the federal government, but by the people who were involved in the drug deal and sexual assault, as I believe there exists more than just one lone operator. They may call me “narc” but it’s not because I’m a narcissist. In fact, the person who raped me is far more likely to be part of the paranoid-schizoid personality constellation.

When I describe these events, it makes me feel shameful, and I suspect this is the reason why people ascribe their targeting to rogue government conspiracies involving mind control, or NSA and CIA service security surveillance utilizing advanced technology that can “read minds” and transmit auditory voices into human skulls. It’s easier to ascribe this occurrence to government intrusion, and clandestine secret military operations because it allows the targeted individual to elude the responsibility that, they themselves, may have acquired a psychopathic personality within their orbit because of their past behavior, and these personalities are interested in destroying them because of psychic arousal for primal scene fantasies. My own shady past association may be the reason for my targeting. Targeted individuals may be having difficulty facing their truth which is, they themselves are/were abusing substances and/or the people responsible for abusing them are people who have always been part of their friendships and family arrangements. It’s simply this, that the psychopathic personality didn’t reveal his true identity to them until he had their victim exactly where they wanted their victim. That is, in a powerless and subjugated position. This is what psychopaths do. They wait, patiently, until the time is ripe for the yielding. Still, this does not give the perpetrator the right to get away with the harm they are inflicting on society.

I have not used illicit chemical substances since October 3, 2006. I no longer associate with my former “close friends” and have made the necessary adjustments to my lifestyle choices. However, this did not stop a psychopath from stalking me online and hacking a variety of my on-line accounts like Facebook, my e-mail server, and my WordPress blog. It didn’t stop them from inflicting pain and suffering into my world, utilizing electronic stimulation, attempting to stimulate and sedate me through clandestine, rogue orchestrations utilizing a wirelessly controlled implantable device like some type of sex toy that delivers stimulation to my genitals and anal regions and sedation through a neural radio frequency link. Nor did it stop them from targeting me both outside and inside of my residence during necessary activities like cutting the grass, aerobics and weight lifting (workouts beneficial for health), and cleaning my home.

Although I refuse to believe that this phenomenon is part of some clandestine secret military operations utilizing some form of abbreviated code name, I can’t deny my past history. But this past history shouldn’t be used like former “promiscuity laws” were used to exonerate men accused of acts involving brutal forms of rape because of “the victim’s past history with physical and/or sexual abuse in childhood.” This history isn’t meant to be used as an excuse to give some deranged lunatic a “defense” to continue his behavior and illude the responsibility he owes to the federal and state government and to the victims themselves!

Maid to Order: The Commercial Fetishism of High Technologies in the Era of the Electronically Targeted Individual

gps-phone-web
The new age of computer technology and wireless devices has given rise to issues surrounding cyber-surveillance (illegal security-service surveillance) and has been associated with crimes like cyberstalking, sextortion, murder, cyber misbehavior, and terrorizing intimate partners with newly developed 21st-century technologies, and to which encompass the United States “National Security Cyber Investigation” in the 21st century and beyond (The United States Attorney’s Bulletin, 2016; Department of Justice Journal of Federal Law and Practice, 2019).

Just like Madonna’s erotic photo album “Sex” is filled with the theatrical paraphernalia of BDSM: boots, chains, leather, whips, masks, costumes, and scripts, so too, is there a potential for newly advancing technologies that seek to subjugate Objects (victims) using an electromagnetic tether and electronic devices to control the victim. These high technologies provide an avenue for the sexual pervert to carry out a form of BDSM in fantasy. To warn of the ominous dangers inherent in these new advancing “service-security surveillance” technologies, technologies that are at play as part of the phenomenon otherwise known as the electronically targeted individual, become grossly understated (Douglas, Harris & Dragiewicz, 2019). Like BDSM, these new advancing technologies target, harass, assault, and torture victims and it runs the risk of unleashing a truly insidious dark side found within human nature itself. A power unleashed on an unsuspecting greater public with even more horror. Its uses are of particular danger to women, children, and anyone lacking power. People belonging to minority groups who lacking education, wealth, and connections of power to defend against it. For the most part, it has been women who run the risk of being raped, but children are also in danger at the hands of pedophiles. Homosexuals and transgender men and women are also targets of violence. A new tide has been unleashed in the era of the 21st century, and it is one that may bring with it a murderous and disastrous undoing.

Harnessing control of the human body utilizing radiological devices (electronic devices that respond to frequency) against the will of the human target is one of the most insidious and clandestine attempts of absolute power rooted in the paranoid-schizoid personality position. Its attempt to humiliate and dehumanize, usurping power away from human Objects (victims) is on par with the murderous machinery of the Holocaust and the inhumane experiments that followed in its aftermath performed by Nazi doctors (see Jacobs, 2007). Its actions are rooted in psychotic fantasies of the primal scene and because of its cloak of invisibility, a concept of crisis has developed. How are we to adequately describe these invisible violations if we can’t accurately explain what they are?

In the theatre of BDSM, patriarchy’s traditional theme is offered. The theme that manhood is synonymous with mastery, and submission is bound to female fate (see Neidecken, 2016; Knafo & Feiner, 1996; Knafo & Feiner, 2006). In the theatre of BDSM, a dominant’s foot may be presented as bound and a leash straps him or her to the neck of their submissive. This bondage fetish performs identity in theatre performance and displays for an audience that power is intertwined with independence. Scenes of bondage are often stapled with scenes of abandonment and separation. For if it were to display unity, there would be no need for the props it utilizes; chains, whips, handcuffs, blindfolds, leather leashes, straps, and wooden paddles (Madonna, 1992). Sex as high theatre and in the world of BDSM, high theatre parades images of servile obedience in the conventional modes of power. BDSM is situated within primal scene symbolism and it borrows its power from the everyday scenes of the cultural economies it is found in. Money, prisons, dungeons, bathrooms, and the houses of elite empires. In reality, it is nothing more than psychopathologies of the flesh. According to Richard von Krafft-Ebing, “Sadism was an aberrant and atavistic manifestation of the “innate desire to humiliate, hurt, wound, or even destroy others in order thereby to create sexual pleasure in one’s self (McClintock, 2013).” In the intercourse of the sexes, sexuality affords both men and women, not only the power but the greater pleasure in “winning over,” and “conquering.” It was Krafft-Ebing’s opinion that while men tend toward aggressive postures, women derive pleasure from innate coyness and, with her victory over attracting the gaze of her male aggressor, affords her intense gratification and satisfaction (McClintock, 2013). Especially when it runs against other females in competition for sex (Sarteschi, 2017). For the most part, men and women utilize violence in two very different ways. Similar to Krafft-Ebing’s opinion, statistical records record that the percentages of violence and favors male aggression (Fox & Fridel, 2017; Hudak, Corry, Schwimmer & Rupp, 2020). Whereas women tend toward more passive-aggressive modes of aggression, utilizing more hidden and clandestine alternatives (e.g., deception, pathological lying, and high impression management).

It is my opinion, I have an adult child harassing me, utilizing power over me with the use of electronic devices that respond to electromagnetic frequency signals (radio waves). A personality void of empathy and the capacity to feel any real concern for the welfare of others. He plays with me like a toy, a remote-control human toy. And in my opinion, it is one of the grandest criminal conspiracies rooted in organized crime I have ever come to know. This phenomenon possesses such a threat to the national security of the United States of America, that I fear for everyone’s safety in defense against it because it has harnessed the power to inflict even greater harm on American citizens walking freely within our country’s borders by usurping free will and acting as that person’s individual sovereign. It is bigger than just gang stalking. It has the power to control people like cattle. Like Hitler did with the Jews, it corrals people like livestock and groups them together as something “other.” And where ever there is absolute power, absolute virtue never follows. We know this from past history. Tyrants are little children who have never learned how to navigate loss and separation and mature into proper adult development (see Yardley, 2004). In a paper entitled “Dark Triad, Tramps, and Thieves” the authors write:

“Despite the obvious importance of individual differences in understanding offending behavior (e.g., Miller & Lynam, 2001; Wilcox, Sullivan, Jones, & van Gelder, 2014)there has been relatively little research exploring the relationships between personality and petty thefts in non-incarcerated adults (Lyons, & Jonason, 2015).”

This means there is a clinical lack of understanding regarding sadism’s relationship to personality within the population of non-incarcerated adults. That is to say, there is a tremendous lacuna in the research literature with regard to the prevalence of sadistic traits and their connection to personality in the world of non-incarcerated adults today, and how these individual-specific sadistic traits contribute to the invisible crime of electronic targeting. Because Lyons and Jonason’s research was based on the information provided by the self-reported crime that went unnoticed, it reveals to us the higher prevalence of sadism within adult non-incarcerated populations. This data is usually obtained by researchers utilizing the information provided by prison institutions who have access to the base of clinical evidence for incarcerated populations (see Lyons & Jonason, 2015; Buckels, Jones, & Paulhus, 2013; Johnson, Plouffe, & Saklofske, 2019; Krick, Tresp, Vatter, Ludwig, Wihlenda, & Rettenberger, 2016; Nitschke, Mokros, Osterheider, & Marshall, 2013).

Primal scene experiences and fantasies are viewed as a blueprint for internalized object relationships. The concept of the primal scene dramatically depicts a blending of past and present, fantasy and reality in the child’s relationships (see Niedecken, 2016; Knafo & Feiner, 1996; Knafo & Feiner, 2006). So, his use of objects in identificatory ways reveals to the onlooker his unanalyzed unconscious connection which speaks of a “human absence,” an empty and impoverished childhood. Because his behavior demonstrates a great absence in his ability to “connect” with the Object interpersonally, he uses a theatre stage with inanimate props and human subjects. In order for the perpetrator to establish his “connection” with one of his victims, he must utilize a prop that serves as an intermediary position, an electronic device. A device that functions as a counter-phobic object to ward of anxieties induced by this Object (Fabozzi, 2016; Gaddini, 2003; Galligan, 1994; Chatterji, 2009; Hull, 2004); electronic technology in the form of a handheld toy. Once he creates this “connection” he establishes a remote, from a distance, approach to establishing a relationship with the human target and thereby “wins” his “possession” based on unequal advantage (Winnicott, 1971). The stage of sexual commerce of BDSM is the transformation of power (Chescheir & Schulz, 2004),and this transformation is also witnessed in domestic violence and terrorism. This technology is no different than rape (Conaghan, 2019) or the coercive control used by the abuser in intimate partner relationships (Stark, 2007). It demonstrates a deeply troubled mind in terms of object relations, and I am going to theorize this troubling behavior may be the product of avoidant or ambivalent attachment in childhood (Wallin, 2007). Children who suffer from avoidant attachment possess the greatest potential for inflicting harm. As a result of avoidant attachment, persistent parental abandonment, and neglect force the child to play independently by himself with his toy props. These children appear very well behaved to onlookers because they don’t cry once their parental objects have left the room. And because of this persistent parental abandonment and neglect, the child may have trouble establishing relationships in adulthood. This troubling behavior may also be due to a learning disability like autism. It may also be the result of “payback” for some perceived wrong and the human Object (victim) has now become part of the “bad breast” in the paranoid splitting of the mother. The paranoid-schizoid personality suffers from the psychic splitting of the mother into two parts; the good breast and the bad breast (see Jacobs, 2007). It is also termed the ambivalent breast which makes up ambivalent attachment. Either way, whatever is at the root of this troublesome behavior it MUST be stopped!!!

If we can’t say what electronic targeting and electronic torture “is”, how can we defend against it as a criminal act?

Image for post

A Concept in Crisis

Misleading truths that obscure the real nature of electronic targeting, electronic harassment, electronic assaults, and electronic torture compound the misunderstandings surrounding the phenomenon. In an academic paper entitled The Essence of Rape by Joanne Conaghan published in the Oxford Journal of Legal Studies (2019) states,

“…if perceptions of rape vary so extensively, how can it properly signify a shared understanding around which public debate may be conducted (Conaghan, 2019)?”

Likewise, this same problem exists with the phenomenon of electronically targeted individuals. These individuals claim government interference, police misconduct, police stalking and harassment, gang stalking by other citizens, and that they are being used as a part of “government secret operations in clandestine experiments of mind control.” One website has suggested the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual’s most accurate description is “security-service stalking.” (Karlstrom, 2018) “Security-service stalking” is called “cyberstalking” by the FBI. (United States Attorney’s Bulletins & Journal of Federal Law Practices, May 2016).

I am going to try and weave an understanding between professional moral misconduct and the electronically targeted individual. Last night I watched a 20/20 documentary about the tragic death of Anna Nicole Smith (e.g., Viki Lynn Hogan) who was pronounced dead from a drug overdose and an abscess that infected her body at the site of an injection given to her by her personal psychiatrist, Dr. Khristine Eroshevich. The doctor who gave her the injection and wrote her the 10 prescription drugs Anna Nicole had in her system at the time of death eluded a prison sentence (Ceasar, 2015). She had all charges dropped and only one count, a misdemeanor, for writing a prescription drug, not in the name of the person it was intended. Since the law recognizes and guides how the structure of consent is established, was it perceived that Anna Nicole contributed to her own death because she had the money to pay an immoral doctor the necessary cash required for acquiring those needed prescriptions? Similarly, in cases of rape, the courts look at how “consent” was structured for the activity. Since the making of consent is not unfettered but not vested with one source; it is a dialectic between ordinary people and the law, and the social reality that orders relationships within a prescribed legal category. The law is not so much concerned with a person freely giving consent to engage in an activity, as much as it is with the social and moral value of the activity to which the person is consenting. If this is true then why was, psychiatrist Khristine Eroshevich, responsible for medical misconduct and the manslaughter death of Anna Nicole Smith, acquitted on practically all the charges (Associated Press, 2010)? It’s because consent isn’t enough to guarantee that a person’s behavior is moral. Yet we live in a world that evaluates a person behavior by looking at their accumulated wealth, their credit score, their bank accounts, how timely they pay their bills and taxes, level of education, along with security background checks, and none of those things provide any indication that the person actually possesses an ounce of morality. In the final court decision in the trial, People v. Samuels (1967), a case involving BDSM, the court wrote:

“It is a matter of common knowledge that a normal person in full possession of his or her mental faculties does not freely and seriously consent to the use upon his or her self of force likely to produce great bodily harm. Those persons that do freely consent to such force and bodily injury no doubt require the enforcement of the very [criminal] laws that were enacted to protect them and other humans (Weinberg, 2016).”

One might make the argument that Anna Nicole Smith was perhaps not of her right sound mind and body and that Dr. Eroshevich’s professional opinions were being influenced by the money and fame Anna Nicole Smith offered. The promise of lucrative cash payments and high profile, luxurious lifestyle in exchange for prescription drugs and doctor services, and how the subtle nuances of coercive control played back and forth in this scenario. But shouldn’t have Dr. Eroshevich’s professional training make her more responsible for the wrong done? Now, let’s make the leap from this sensationalized tragic case of a beauty queen to the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual. Supply “On Demand.” [This pun was purposely intended to make my case because we now live in an age where wireless frequency (wi-fi) is made available on demand.] The addicted are a vulnerable population within our communities and, as such, require more protection under the law from those wishing to do them bodily harm. It’s not likely the addicted “freely” choose (for their actions may be unconscious to them) to impose “the force” (the long-term side effects of drug and alcohol use) against their bodies, but rather they are responding to unanalyzed and unconscious past trauma(s). Behavior resulting from a subjugating process, and “a psychic life of power” instilled in them from early childhood. If one is to undo the damage of a brain “hard-wired” for behavior then it would take a pretty strong force to influence and try and “change” its path. The new advances in medicine manipulating human consciousness utilize radio frequency and artificial electronic stimulation.

To say that, “Money is the God that rules all fools” is a gross understatement. To make the leap from the manslaughter charge Dr. Eroshevich should have been given to the phenomenon of the targeted individual isn’t too difficult. When we make the leap from the case of Anna Nicole Smith to the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual we may see a very similar picture of moral misconduct, coercive control, and the taking of hostages which are all found in the phenomenon now known as electronic targeting, electronic assault, electronic harassment, electronic bodily torture which may be part of a hidden subculture possessing the disposable income, a large financial base of economic support, and the hidden network connections to ensure its continued operations.

Supply “On Demand” in Sadistic Enjoyments. If the outrage of sex play involving bondage and discipline is its insight into consensual sadomasochism as higher theater, then, we could also say, the phenomenon of the electronically tortured and assaulted target individuals also plays into this “higher theatre.” A theatre that involves cruelty as high entertainment. How can we make the phenomenon of the electronically targeted individual’s connection to “higher theatre and higher entertainment?” Is it through the connection of “On-Demand Services,” providers supplying us with the connection to tap into its security-service stalking nature? To argue that in acts of sadism the “dominant” has power and the “slave” has not is to read theater for reality, and it is to read the theatre of WAR. And here we arrive at the unveiling in the nature of some individuals’ primal scene fantasies which act out in bloody murderous aggression against their fellow man (Neidecken, 2016). How does this tie into BDSM and the electronically targeted, assaulted, harassed, and tortured individual? It ties in through man’s proclivity to demonize groups and the very human enjoyment derived from dehumanizing, degrading, and destroying, and stealing from those same groups. It is as Michael Foucault said,

“Sadomasochism, as Foucault puts it, “is not a name given to a practice as old as [Love]; it is a massive cultural fact which appeared precisely at the end of the eighteenth century, and which constitutes one of the greatest conversions of Western imagination: unreason transformed into delirium of the heart.” The sadism in bondage and discipline “plays the world backwards.” It plays it backward because it nudges us ever closer to our Neolithic ancestors and the savage beatings that made up humanity as a whole.

From Domestic Violence to Coercive Control. At the core of security-service stalking is coercive control and,

“the core of coercive control theory is the analogy to other capture crimes like hostage-taking and kidnapping, a comparison that illustrates its “generality.” The singular advantage of the analogy is that it links, not just women [and their children] to the large discourse of rights and liberties we apply to citizen-victims, including human rights discourse, implicitly undermining a major rationale that limits justice intervention in what are “deemed just family matters.” By using gender-neutral language of power and control to frame abuse, the hostage analogy also supports an approach woman have repeatedly used to gain legal rights men already possess, such as the right to vote or sit on juries. Called “formal equality,” courts or legislators are asked to imagine the wrong involved if men were denied these rights solely because of their sex, to attribute the observed lack of parity to discrimination, and then to level the playing field so that women are treated identically to men. From this vantage point, the right of abuse victims to “equal protection” reflects the resemblance of abuse to assault and other harms from which men and strangers are already protected. The analogy also supports the belief that battered women are “hostages at home,” suggesting abuse is a political crime like terrorism (Stark, 2007).”

Utilizing this understanding of domestic violence and the nature of coercive control used to carry out such violence, we can come to an understanding of “security-service stalking” and its analogy to hostage-taking and kidnapping. Acts the obstruct the exercise of a person’s full civil liberties. In short, imprisonment within the confines of an electromagnetic cage that tethers the human body electronically to a controller.

The Primal Scene and Symbol Formation: Why war and the electronically targeted individual

Image for post
Children playing war-games

The following writing considers the theory of Dietmut Niedecken and her psychoanalytic work exploring the primal scene and symbol formation.

Interpreting the Psychic Material

Alfred Lorenzer thinks that the traumatic experience consists of an “intolerable situation” that is available in phantasy being realized (1965, p. 693). If we consider what is being suggested is an “intolerable situation” represented in the fabric of the psyche that is generally dissolved in the fabric and only brought to bear when it is activated by a traumatic irruption, we can then make a connection with its connection to psychosis.

In considering potentially traumatic influences in early childhood, the primal scene was in focus in early psychoanalytic writings. The child is subjected to such an experience, to excitations that are overwhelming and therefore may have a traumatic impact. Freud thought the traumatic event of the primal scene was due to the child’s witnessing the parents’ act of intercourse. But some psychoanalysts believe the “primal scene” isn’t so much connected to witnessing the parents’ act of sexual intercourse as much as it is connected to how the parents treat one another in response to each other’s needs (e.g., in a loving and respectful way or in violent altercation and aggression). When aggressive arguments and physical fights are witnessed by the child, the child may experience traumatic side effects to the excitations that create cortical arousal and these excitations may be overwhelming for the child to process, and as a result, the child may have a hard time processing the event. This is most certainly connected with dissociative states and this becomes the difference between knowing and not knowing the trauma. Melanie Klein takes early phantasy formations as the “combined parent figure” and this combined parent figure is a particularly anxiety-inducing, fusional-destructive representation from the early stages of the Oedipus complex. The primal scene phantasy comes into being on the basis of projections of fear of abandonment, envy, and hatred that the child feels with regard to the parents’ sexual relationship from which he is excluded. Laplanche (2004) considered the primal scene the product of both the result of an event and a phantasy as the child works out the enigmatic message proceeding from the adults. In addition, according to Laplanche the phantasy is not arbitrary but an outcome of the child’s cultural environment which makes available to him for the translation of the enigmatic message of the primal scene some “general cultural . . . narrative schemata” (2004, P.908) These serve the binding and symbolization of the traumatizing enigmatic messages.

Many psychoanalysts have asked the question, “Why war?” And the answer to that question is, “War is how some children work out the enigmatic message of the primal scene (Mitzlaff and Niedecken, 2013, p. 87).” We see these enigmatic messages being played out all the time in child’s play when children will come together and play war-games. A very common game played when I was little was “Cops and Robbers.” In the war-games played by young children (mostly boys), one can observe the obvious encoding of the actions that make up the primal scene into male-sexual and female-sexual stereotypes, and the war scene itself is made up of the props and objects the child recognizes from television and computer games. As part of the primal scene symbolization what is acted out in the child’s game of war is a phallic-aggressive attack. Thus, the enigmatic message of the primal scene is in play here. In the journal paper The Primal Scene and Symbol Formation, Deitmut Niedecken writes:

“We can postulate that the children playing war have already developed a primal scene phantasy in which they assume the place of witnesses of excited events taking place between the parents. In playing, they are concerned now with further translating for themselves the enigmatic message of the primal scene. They are falling back on the metaphor of the war game, which operates as a cultural “translation aid (Laplanche, 2004, p. 908)”

Thus, there is a structure-forming aspect of the primal scene phantasy. Britton develops a concept called “The missing link” which positions a third person within the triangular space of the primal scene. This triangular space is bound by three persons of the Oedipal situation and all their potential relationships. This structure-forming space includes the possibility of being a participant in a relationship and observed by a third person as well as being an observer of a relationship between two people (Britton, 1989, p. 85).

Niedecken has shown when a child works out the exclusion from the primal scene the possibility of the “I think” position is made available and the protagonists of the primal scene are represented in grammar as “subject” and “object” and the relationship between them is governed by the predicate “Father-Subject has a Mother-Object.” I believe her German translates into a possessive form, as in “Father-Subject possess a Mama-Object.” That is, the father possesses the mother and the child is excluded from the sexual relationship.

If we consider it in this way, the development of verbal-discursive thinking is underpinned by an extremely violent, in fact, murderous phantasy and it is not surprising that children convey a perpetrator-victim relationship in their play. In this context, it is easily understood how the instrumentally dissecting external view proceeds from discursive language and allows a sadistic control over what is thought. This sadistic control and extremely violent and murderous discursive thinking underlie the machinery used during the Holocaust and can provide the reason for the sweeping tide of our planet’s self-destruction (Horkheimer and Adorno, 1973).

It is at this point in the paper Niedecken presents the possibility that exclusion from the primal scene may not be the only way a child interprets and experiences the primal scene. There is another possible way the child works through the experience as an inclusive member of the trio. She offers an example in music theory in which “two human voices can sing a love duet while an instrumental part accompanies it and adopts its own position towards it that is heard not as excluded by as belonging; in a fugue, two voices can join each other in a stretto, while a counterpoint is interwoven in it so that the three parts combine to produce an interwoven whole. Such forms of experience suggest to Niedecken that the primal scene experience must also be conceivable as a terzet, and she began to wonder where she could find such a form of the “primal scene as terzet (Niedecken, 2016).”

Niedecken offered two clinical examples of how children may experience the primal scene not as excluded but as included. She writes,

“In being together sexually, the parents do not have to exclude the child from their phantasies; instead, she can latently appear in them as its extremely welcome product, perhaps also as an oedipally desired participant; and the child can experience with them the excitation of the scene herself until the moment when she makes her own entrance and makes herself heard — as a counterpoint that is woven into the stretto of the fugue theme (Niedecken, 2016).”

It is important to note that this inclusion is in no way perverted, but rather demonstrates the healthy love between the two parents and towards the offspring him/herself. That is, the inclusion of a child in the primal scene is based on healthy reciprocity within the relationship, a relationship filled with respect, love, and caring that is consistently and actively demonstrated throughout.

With regard to the material that can be interpreted and analyzed in the phenomenon of electronic target assaults in the experience of the targeted individual, we can read its terzetto. We can read the unconscious unanalyzed fantasy of a child’s exclusion from the primal scene and the Father-Subject’s phallic aggressive attacks against his Oedipal Objects. In object relations theory we interpret the aggressor’s message as the phallic and potent father figure commanding and ordering his subjects/objects of his relational world.

It is my opinion, there is a tremendous lack of understanding in the research literature with regard to the prevalence of sadism in the world of non-incarcerated adults today, and how individual-specific sadistic traits contribute to the invisible crime of electronic targeting. It is also my opinion this phenomenon belongs to a subculture. A subculture interested in the “theatre of cruelty” in acting out a fantasy of control. It also utilizes the world of hi-tech electronic commercial fetishism (consumer hi-tech products) and biological implants that tethered together Objects with electronic devices, devices that act as counter-phobic objects warding off anxiety from these fear-inducing “threats.” Its action is bound to working out the enigmatic message from the child’s exclusion of the primal scene and it demonstrates the sadomasochism associated with other acts of BDSM.

Modern-Day Medicine and the New Era of “Electronic Slavery” in America

Image for post

Modern American medicine was built on the backs of black slaves. This is a true statement, and there are countless other examples we can draw on in the recorded annals of human history to support this fact, not just the horrific experiments carried out on the Jews by the Germans during World War II. I’m not going to list them all here. If you are interested in a quick read regarding the presence of unethical, inhumane experimentation found in the human archive you can read When Doctors Kill: Who, Why, and How by Joshua A. Perper and Stephen J. Cina published in 2010. It offers a good glimpse into the prevalence of human sadism and the dehumanization of various minority groups within the field of experimental medicine.

“I am God, your Physician” (Ex. 15:26). The prophets also acknowledge God as a Healer and Jeremiah stated: “Heal us, and we will be healed” (from the blessing for healing, Jeremiah 17:14). Throughout the Torah, God is imbued with great healing powers. It is no wonder that it is written, “The Lord giveth, the Lord taketh away” when it comes to health, wealth, and life itself.” (1)

This quote, which was included in Perper’s and Cina’s book, is very interesting because the Bible provided guidance to man on many levels. This guidance came down to him in the form of laws and codes and the very book that governed the reader’s behavior also gave the reader instructions on how to carry out war and genocides, carry out acts of torture and cruelty, how the service of a prostitute was made acceptable and how they were to be paid (by the giving of a goat), bizarre ways of killing children, and how to sell your daughters into slavery and when to stone those daughters to death.

To begin my discussion, we should ask why it is we have all of the current advanced modern technology that we do today? And the answer to this question is, of course, because of the art of war. All of the advanced current modern technology we have today has been developed to make us even more proficient at carrying out acts of war against our enemies. Even the use of neuromodulation therapies can be used on soldiers suffering the traumatic side-effects of war. But like all good things, these very technologies can be used against us in malign and Machiavellian ways. Many of those who claim they are being electronically targeted in some way include antidotal stories recounting their experiences. Antidotal stories are the least creditable source of scientific facts because they lack scientific proof. When trying to make a point that supports an argument claiming electronic targeting you need to provide scientific evidence that supports your claim. When a person claims they are being electronically targeted void of any supporting evidence, people often get labeled a “nut job” or a “conspiracy theorist.” And even still, when the scientific proof is available, you need to tap into the realm of philosophy to untangle the convoluted twisted story of “silence” (e.g., clandestine technologies) and its relationship to abuse.

With the advent of advancing modern technology, we witness within the field of medicine an ever-increasing dependency on new technologies that operate utilizing radiofrequency. We find on the DARPA’s website (Department of Advancing Research Projects Agency) the announcement regarding their new N3 (Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology) program. (2) Various uses of neuromodulation have exploded in the field of medicine over the past years. Although DARPA’s program is geared toward developing “wearable” headgear that delivers electronic stimulus to certain regions of the brain, researchers may have moved into the advancing direction of biologically implantable that utilize wireless signals that do not have to be worn as “gear”, but instead remain permanently in place within the body receiving wireless signals from a broadcasting source. I know there are implantable devices like VNS (Vagus Nerve Stimulator) which, planted in the upper shoulder of the human body, delivers and regulates neuromodulation of electronic stimulus from the vagus nerve to the brain in people suffering from Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy. These biological implants come with a remote-control device the person uses to modulate settings of stimulation. It is also important to note these devices are surgically implanted. They are not surgically non-invasive. (3)(4) Other devices that have been coined “experimental” have been observed in surgically implanted microchips in teeth during dental surgery. (5)

PROGRAMMING AND GROOMING IN COVERT IMPLANTATION

The federal government through the CIA has had a long history of wanting a piece of your mind or at least a stake in knowing how to control the mind. As a result, there have been various programs geared toward controlling states of human consciousness:

“Between 1955 and 1960, the CIA conducted a mind control and brainwashing program with the code name “MKULTRA” using psychoactive drugs such as LSD and mescaline at 80 institutions on hundreds of test subjects. MKULTRA was started on the order of CIA director Allen Dulles on April 13, 1953, largely in response to alleged Soviet, Chinese, and North Korean use of mind-control techniques on U.S. prisoners of war in Korea. The CIA wanted to use similar methods on their own captives and possibly to manipulate foreign leaders with such techniques. The project was run by the Office of Scientific Intelligence under the direction of Dr. Sydney Gottlieb, a psychiatrist, and chemist. Prior to MKULTRA, a number of secret US governmental studies had been conducted to study mind control, interrogation, behavior modification, and related topics including Project CHATTER in 1947, and Project BLUEBIRD and Project ARTICHOKE in 1951. Because most MKULTRA records were deliberately destroyed in 1973 by order of then CIA Director Richard Helms, it is difficult if not impossible to have a complete understanding of the more than 150 individually funded research sub-projects sponsored by MKULTRA and related CIA programs. The Agency invested millions of dollars into studies probing dozens of methods of influencing and controlling the mind by chemical, biological and radiological means (Radio Frequency or RF).”(1)

One of the latest methods and systems for altering states of human consciousness has come to us through a new creation by James Gall. (6) On June 23, 1992, the United States of America has granted a patent for altering the states of human consciousness which involves the simultaneous application of multiple stimuli, preferable sounds, having differing frequencies and wave forms. This technology researches the correlation between electroencephalographic wave rhythms exhibited by the human brain in various states of consciousness. For example, when the human brain is in a relaxed state with eyes closed there is a pulse frequency between the range of 7–14 Hz. When a person is aroused and anxious the rhythms exhibit a pulse frequency in the range of 14–28 Hz, and when a person is sleeping the rhythms fall to within 1.75 to 3.5 Hz range. The latest in cutting edge technology utilizes frequency wave stimulation that targets certain regions of the body and the brain through “wearable” gear that have been utilized by scientists studying psychiatric illness, brain damage (brain trauma), and paraplegics who have had their spinal cords damaged or severed resulting in paralysis. (7) However, with regard to the latest advances in wireless communication and new technologies that are surgically implanted in the human body, devices that can regulate states of consciousness, the possibility of controlling human behavior even further presents to researchers even new possibilities in controlling human behavior.

Experiments of this nature are of personal interest with regard to controlling someone’s “sexual arousal” because women have been the targets for violence; sexual assaults and rapes and have been the human cargo for human traffickers interested in selling young girls and women into the sex trade. In addition, how are men to get their wives “in the mood” when we know many couples experience “sexless” marriages after many years of marriage.

MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

Before the advent of modern technology, men used alcohol or clandestinely slipped a drug into a woman’s drink to try and control them. Today, it has been my experience, women are being manipulated by those close to them (past associates, friends, acquaintances, pastoral counselors, family, intimate partners) through biological implants that may be used for obtaining sexual favors from them or controlling other aspects of their behavior. How is one to explain the female experience of waking up in the morning with severe vaginal soreness? The kind of soreness that comes from a long session of sexual intercourse. Women are being raped in their “sleep,” while in their homes, using a form of advancing technology against them that allows the perpetrator to easily slip in and out of their bedrooms, obtain sexual relations without resistance and without the possibility of any physical altercation. Since new technologies offer the potential to alter states of human consciousness and induce sleep utilizing frequency (Hz) stimulation, how is this happening in America?

THE NEXT-GENERATION OF NONSURGICAL NEUROTECHNOLOGY (N3)

If you visit DARPA’s website that discusses their N3 program (Next-Generation Nonsurgical Neurotechnology), it reads:

“DARPA has awarded funding to six organizations to support the Next-Generation Nonsurgical neurotechnology (N3) program, first announced in March 2018. Battelle Memorial Institute, Carnegie Mellon University, John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Rice University, and Teledyne Scientific are leading multidisciplinary teams to develop high-resolution, bidirectional brain-machine interfaces for use by able-bodied service members. These wearable interfaces could ultimately enable diverse national security applications such as control of active cyber defense systems and swarms of unmanned aerial vehicles, or teaming with computer systems to multitask during complex missions.” (2)

If these research projects are part of research programs in play at major universities throughout the US, and historically many experimental research projects have been funded by the federal government, then this means all these newly created technology will soon be, if not already, marketed to certain groups of people like medical doctors and others in the field of clinical medicine, or to those with advanced degrees in mathematics and physics, undergraduate students interesting in expanding new technologies with regard to its future possible uses. Promoting these new technologies over websites is part of a web-based campaign known as conspicuous consumption. Who has the purchasing power to buy into such experimental technology? Is it just the federal government? The everyday human? Medicine and the field of health care? Obviously, these new technologies have found their way into the hands of modern doctors as well as in the hands of everyday humans. The Mayo Clinic, the number one top-rated hospital in the United States features some of the latest therapies utilizing biological implants that respond to electromagnetic frequency. (8) Since medicines increasing dependence on technology is rapidly growing, utilizing brain-machine interfaces to help “cure” fatigue sounds like a good idea. But as I have experienced the effects of “brain-electromagnetic stimulation interface” to try and coercively control me into therapy sounds like the Machiavellian deception that it is. A way of manipulating the test subject into a certain location/area. Corralling humans like cattle similar to how farmers control their livestock. Yet, as I have experienced it, this form of electronic targeting has worked in exactly this way. And although there were no explicit words spoken to me during this time while being corralled, we can understand the language that is being expressed. In reading Philosophy of the Maternal Body: Reading silence, we can come to an understanding of the dialectic through the lens of philosophy. The dialectic that is being used when an invisible force latches onto your body and you suddenly come under the control of an unknown assailant can be read as, “Do my will.”

So, who else could be interested in utilizing forms of this technology? How about state policing authorities interested in new models of “communication” in aspects of “social control”? Coercive control is used all the time by those in power ruling over their subjects, especially the police. This technology is part of a market economy whose consumers are those interested in utilizing the latest in 21st-century advances of “Invisible Technology”. I’m led back to the same question, who has the purchasing power to buy into such advancing technology in the interest of “ social control” in utilizing this technology for their group’s benefit? Psychiatric hospitals trying to help “cure” the mentally ill? Obviously, this is one aspect of its use. How about the various state governments interested in imposing new forms of “social control” in curbing “deviance” through new cutting-edge surveillance technologies? Surveillance technologies that might help to ensure bringing “peace” to its communities. Who has access with regard to the purchasing power of these new technologies? People in positions of power within local police administrations who make purchasing decisions on what new technologies offer the latest in cutting-edge surveillance power? How about people within the news media interested in new ways of “communicating” with the public? Am I being targeted by my neighbor, the state government, or the federal government, or someone else interested in controlling my vagina and the “service” it might provide men?

There are various forms of devices that run on an electromagnetic frequency that can be used as part of a surveillance state. All the latest technologies; cell phones, laptops, tablets, wireless telephones, ALEXA, global positioning systems, tracking devices in automobile navigation systems utilizing satellites. The creation of many of these technologies has been funded by the US military through the federal government under military contracts. The internet was developed by the federal government for the purpose of gathering a larger knowledge base in support of the space race and its NASA projects.

DARK TRIAD TRAITS, MACHIAVELLIAN DECEPTION, AND THE PRESENCE OF EVERYDAY SADISM

To say, “There exists levels of subclinical sadism in the everyday populations of the world” is a gross understatement. In a 2016 research study, researchers concluded they found higher levels of Dark Triad personality traits in students pursuing business degrees. (9) In a 2013 study, researchers found that sadistic personality traits were a predictor for a test subject’s preference for killing bugs, and in a second study found sadistic personality traits predicted the preference for harming innocent victims. (10) In another research study in 2015, researchers concluded that people who admitted having stolen something in their lifetime were higher on primary and secondary psychopathy, Machiavellianism, and dysfunctional impulsivity than those who had not stolen something. In addition to this finding, secondary psychopathy predicted stealing from a wider range of targets than primary psychopathy, narcissism, and Machiavellianism. The researchers also discussed how their findings might relate to how psychopathy may be part of an adaptive suite of traits that enable a “cheater” strategy. (11)

I would like to reiterate my previous question,

“Women are being raped in their “sleep,” while in their homes, using a form of advancing technology against them that allows the perpetrator to easily slip in and out of their bedrooms, obtain sexual relations without resistance and without the possibility of any physical altercation. Since new technologies offer the potential to alter states of human consciousness and induce sleep utilizing frequency (Hz) stimulation, how is this happening in America?”

“Despite the obvious importance of individual differences in understanding offending behavior (e.g., Miller & Lynam, 2001; Wilcos, Sullivan, Jones, & van Gelder, 2014), there has been relatively little research exploring the relationships between personality and petty thefts in non-incarcerated adults (Lyons, & Jonason, 2015).” (11) I’d like to expand on this quote by comparing how sexual assault and rape may be considered a form of “petty theft”. In researching the attitudes and behaviors of some individuals found within the court system, there is oftentimes experienced by the victim a proclivity by others toward “victim-blaming” when they encounter certain police officers and court administrators. (12) These experiences are often compounded by the fact women often blame themselves for their sexual assault or rape believing they themselves were responsible for it or that the behavior of the male was somehow justified and expected. In a high school sexual assault case that involved the rape of one 16-year-old female by two football players, other students displayed behavior that reflected victim-blaming toward the 16-year-old victim and downplayed the behavior of the two football players. (13) Through the power of social media, researchers were able to positively identify the prevalence of legitimizing rape myths and subverting myths through social media coverage. Myths that excused the behaviors of these two male teenage assailants because they were “good boys” and pinned responsibility on the rape victim herself. As a result of these widely held beliefs, many acts of sexual assault go under-reported. Speaking from my own personal experiences, I have been sexually assaulted many times throughout my life but only once did I ever have the courage to report it. This should be a statement of the type of treatment female victims are expected to endure after reporting sexual assault. Beginning with how women, as a whole, have been taught to expect “no respect” or receive “no fairness under the law” we can come to an understanding of why and how electronic torture is a new phenomenon in the 21st century of “invisible technologies.” Further proof of the covert “grooming” of victims by forcing them to accept the assaults received. If I represent one female, how many more are out there just like me?

It’s interesting to note the first time the term “targeted individual” was googled, was in 2004. (17) The same year Facebook launched. Facebook launched in February 2004.

Now, bring into this discussion of “electronic targeting” and the “targeted individual” suffering a form of abusive “electronic slavery” and “electronic torture” we can begin to unravel the mystery of the phenomenon by citing the prevalence of everyday sadism within non-incarcerated adult populations in various psychoanalytic papers found in the reference section (9)(10)(11), rape myths and subverting beliefs towards others (12)(13), and how these myths and beliefs contribute to the dehumanization of certain ethnic groups and minority groups. New creative technologies that can promote, through self-promoting business strategies, that may actually target and dehumanize certain minority groups by stripping them of their civil rights and denying them their unique human identities (14). Throughout history, we see periodic manifestations of group violence that dehumanize certain groups based on individual differences; ethnic, race, and gender. (15)(16) The electronically targeted individual is no different from other phenomena of historical dehumanization like the institution of slavery.

Exploring layers of trauma that have been transmitted socially, politically, spatially, and intergenerationally

When I was growing up my father tried to encourage me to do things like eat the fat and grizzle off my steak because it “puts hair on your chest” my sister would obey. I never did. As far as females would go, who would want hair on their chest. But my sister would comply. She gobbled it up happily. They said it tasted like butter. He would also encourage aggression like a crowd would cheer for an opponent in a fight. Being who my father was, male aggression was admired and he encouraged it in us, but I was less aggressive than my sister. My sister would sup up the reward and admiration bestowed for it and after observing, experiencing, and then acting out aggressive behavior my family’s cultural ethos was slowly distilled. I was depressed in childhood, withdrawn, quiet. I retreated into myself. I now understand the phrase “abuse-related incapacity” because I had become self-withdrawn.

Now I am 52, soon to be 53, and I find myself in a toxic relationship with my twin sister, my mother, and my sister’s boyfriend. After allowing me to live here in my mother’s house with my 86-year-old mother, I was told that I have to take care of her. I have no income or spousal support. So, my sister had agreed to let us use the American Express card for groceries and necessities. But then I am made sick for using it! They are using electronic targeting against me for accepting their help. Yet, I’m still expected to care for my mother and attend to her needs while being abused with electromagnetic frequency. So, who is using this technology on us? Who is causing us pain? We are being watched and I don’t think my family is the only one involved in my stalking. They shoulder some of the blame, they shoulder some of the responsibility for the abuse that is perpetrated against me but there are other men out there that may be working with them. I don’t know?

Being in a relationship with my sister is like being in a funhouse where there are constantly shifting floors and walls. You never know where you stand because at any moment a wall can shift and you find yourself in another room. The rules change arbitrarily. I was told I had to act as a servant to my mother while periodically being abused by the three of them. I was told I could live here, take care of my mother, help her with breakfast, bathing and washing, cleaning and cooking, grocery shopping, and lawn care. And as a token of appreciation, I would get $5.00 a day for a little alcohol. Not a healthy habit, I know. Then someone started harming me with electromagnetic frequency and it forced me to cope using alcohol every day. If I could have drunk more, I would have and that is something that was a major change from my previous behavior. Of course, I would drink before all this started happening but it was never hard alcohol. It was maybe 3 to 4 beers of my favorite beer or 3 to 4 glasses of my favorite wine 3 times weekly. After studying psychoanalysis, I am in a better position to understand the mechanizations that have contributed to, not only my own pathology but to other family members’ pathology.

Then my sister and her boyfriend came to my house when my son was in the 9th grade and they took him out of the house because I couldn’t provide adequate space for him. They are abusive people but because they had wealth, a large home, fine cars they were perceived as being “upstanding citizens.” The kind of people the federal government would want to hire because they pay their bills, own homes, have cars, own credit lines, and pay their taxes. But wealth is not an indication of moral standing. Abusive people produce underachievers and instill a sense of defeat and failure because they DON’T ENCOURAGE, THEY DON’T SUPPORT, AND THEY CERTAINLY LACK ANY REAL CONCERN OR EMPATHY FOR ANOTHER’S WELL BEING. And although my sister and her boyfriend can help provide my son assistance, I feel he may not be in a safe place. Because she tells me all the time, “He’s just like you!” And I’m her little tool, her little plaything she gets to manipulate and exploit because she can. They tell people, “I’ll help you.” That’s what she told my mother and me and then, the floor and walls shifted, they get angry and act out against us because we are their “sycophants” for needing their help. They don’t know how or maybe don’t want to help people figure out a plan to be self-sufficient, they want you to be dependent on them, or on alcohol, so they can manipulate you. It’s the game psychopaths play.

I have been abused, sexually, physically, and emotionally and while this is all going on, they want to “fix” me while I am being abused. Is this not the very abuse that is perpetuating the previous abuses in the first place? I have been raped several times in my life and somehow it has just been perceived as “it’s what men sometimes do.” On this particular night, they were experimenting with electromagnetic frequency and sleep to sedate me. I know they were experimenting on me because I started to dream vividly. I fell asleep one night while my son was staying overnight at my sister’s and I woke up in the morning with vaginal soreness. I had not been drinking the night before because this was at a time, I didn’t drink every day. I was much thinner and younger then and one might say I represented as a symbol for “aesthetic sexual beauty.” I am certain I had been violated the night before but because I was unconscious, I don’t remember anything that happened. This has happened to me before with men I would date, but never in my own home. Women can be used as vehicles and/or “lent out” for sex and payment. I’m fairly certain this happened on one occasion with a particular guy I was living with at the time but what happened in my home that night? Was I “lent out” for payment?

There are a group of people at Shop-Rite. When I arrive in the store, at first, I don’t feel anything, but then five minutes after I arrive, I feel electromagnetic frequency turned on. Is it someone working at the store turning on the frequency or is someone following me? It also gets turned on when I sit down at my lap-top, and this I feel has something to do with what I have chosen to study; psychoanalysis, object relations theory, and abnormal psychology. I’ve noticed a direct correlation between the electromagnetic frequency I’ve been experiencing and my wireless router. The implants, I have two, that are located in my body seem to respond to electromagnetic fields; cellular broadcasting signals. These signals cast a signal and make me feel tired so I don’t want to move around. As a result, I lay down in bed and have become sedentary like my 86-year-old mother.

Google Earth not only records street and road information but also records the IP address of wireless routers. This is done so that when Google interacts with people, they can associate an IP address to a location. I’m fairly certain the implant in my lower abdomen acquires wireless signals but I don’t know how because you need a password to access services. The other implant in my head, I don’t know if it acquires wireless signals or if it is turned in to a certain frequency like a two-way radio that transmits audio.

Despotism creates an atmosphere for revolution. It is like John F. Kennedy said, “Those who make a peaceful revolution impossible make a violent revolution inevitable.” Through the repeated denial of rights, usurpations of power, and acts of dehumanization by those in power cause the manifestations of hate speech and the development of political ideologies that are the foundation of violent revolutions. There is a reason why a small number of battered women kill their abusers. It has happened at various times to despotic tyrants in human history.

I’m screaming at my family because that is what they do to me. They come into my home and act aggressively towards me like an abusive intimate partner. Issuing aggressive demands, “Give me $500.00.” When I say, “No. I can’t give you $500.00, I can give $300.00.” They respond with even more aggression, “No. I want $500.00.” If this goes on long enough it causes me to start acting like them through arousal and transference a screaming match ensues. It is as we have exactly witnessed with Donald Trump and his hate speech and rhetoric. It caused arousal and transference of the symbolic relationship and they acted with aggression as they moved into the Capitol building.
