MKULTRA #84, #119 – Projects Bizarre & Pandora

Subproject 84: MKULTRA

Penn University?–Martin Theodore Orne-Relationships-Hypnosis-High Motivation-Hypnotism-Interpersonal-Pentecostal Church-Trance State

Purpose: To Study the nature of the hypnosis process as it may relate to induction of a changed motivational state.

Initiated: 19 August 1960.

2. Purpose of Project: A study of induction of high motivation in individuals by means of the development of specific interpersonal relationships.

3. Progress to Date: Satisfactory.

20 January 1964:

An investigation of Socially induced special states of consciousness under the direction of Dr. [REDACTED].

Orne Obituary, May/June 2000:

Upon coming to Penn in 1964, Professor Orne established and directed the Unit for Experimental Psychiatry, a research laboratory in the School of Medicine that has conducted uninterrupted scientific research for 36 years. … This is amply illustrated in his basic and applied research on the distorting effects of hypnosis on memory…

2. It has long been my opinion that there is a need for a taxonomy of stimulus variables, comparable to those with which we are familiar for personality, to account for factors external to the individual, which affect his performance. People are constrained, pressed, required, etc. to do things because of factors in their environment, perhaps even more than because of the kinds of personalities they are. Furthermore, a stimulus situation is complex, and reflects many subtle variables that are not always uniformly or clearly identified, and where effects may often be overlooked. If we are to be able to study human behavior effectively, we must measure the situations to which people respond as well as the people who respond.

…At present I am thinking in terms of two main divisions: {1} the life space of the individual, and {2} the immediate task situation. …

MEMORANDUM FOR: THE RECORD

SUBJECT : MKULTRA, Subproject 119

1. The purpose of this subproject is to provide funds for a study conducted by [REDACTED] to make a critical review of the literature and scientific developments related to the recording, analysis and interpretation of bio-electric signals from the human organism, and activation of human behavior by remote means. When initiated this study was being done on a consultant basis by [Saul Sells?]. The reason for converting this into a Subproject is to provide more flexibility in the disbursal of funds for various kinds of assistance and equipment needed.

2. As indicated in the attached proposal this study is to provide an annotated bibliography and an interpretive survey of work being done in psychophysiological research and instrumentation. The survey encompasses five main areas:

a. Bioelectric sensors: sources of significant electrical potential and methods of pick-up

b. Recording: amplification, electronic tape and other multi-channel recording.

c. Analysis: autocorrelators, spectrum analyzers, etc. and coordination with automatic data processing equipment.

d. Standardization of data for correlation with biochemical, physiological and behavioral indices.

e. Techniques of activation of the human organism by remote electronic means.

3. In lieu of higher overhead rates, title to any permanent equipment purchased by funds granted the [REDACTED] shall remain with the [REDACTED].

4. The cost of the project will be $6,730, including $2,500 already allotted [REDACTED] as a consulting fee, for one year beginning 1 July 1960. This project will be handled as a grant-in-aid from the [REDACTED] and the handling of funds disbursed will follow the standard practice set up for that organization. Charges should be made against Allotment 1525-1009-1902.

5. [Saul Sells] and others at [Texas Christian University] who may become associated with the project will be completely unwitting of Sponsor.

[REDACTED]

[REDACTED] Project

To make a critical review of literature and scientific developments related to recording, analysis and interpretation of bioelectric signals from the human organism and activation of human behavior by remote means.

As it is visualized, the task should begin with a general survey of research and instrumentation in a number of fields; including neurophysiology, biophysics, anatomy, physiological psychology and neuropsychiatry, as well as electronics, telemetry and communications engineering, At the same time that bibliographic and related activity is initiated, correspondence should be undertaken with all laboratories, companies and agencies working in or carrying out activities related to designated areas of broad survey problem. Visits to laboratories may be undertaken if needed.

The divisions of the problem fall naturally into five main areas: (1) bioelectric sensors: sources of significant electrical potential and methods of pick-up; (2) recording: amplification, electronic tape and other multi-channel recording; (3) analysis: autocorrelators, spectrum analyzers, etc. and coordination with automatic data processing equipment; (4) standardization of data for correlation with biochemical, physiological and behavioral indices; (5) technics [sic] of activation of the human organism by remote electronic means.

Progress has been made and the list of laboratories, investigators and resources in the Bioelectric study is in preparation.

Project Pandora

US response to Soviet use of microwaves on the US embassy in Moscow that began in 1959.

BBC-TV, “Opening Pandora’s Box” transcript, 1984:

Sam Koslov, project director of Pandora

I ran an operation that looked at this. It was called Pandora. (laughs) [unclear] it doesn’t [unclear] that in order to produce an effect that would have any military utility, the amount of power used would be such that you would be in the famous position of Mr. [unclear], who discovered [unclear], as you recall. He had to burn the barn down.

robertobecker
Dr. Robert O. Becker

I believe that there is very little question in that you do produce central nervous system disturbances by microwave exposure. I don’t believe that you could at the present level of technology put someone to sleep instantaneously like that. But one could interfere with decision making capacity. One could do, produce, say, a situation of chronic stress in which your embassy personnel do not operate quite as efficiently as they should. This would obviously lead to the Soviets’ advantage.

  1. be the first to be looking for documentation on the results of this after ten years of forced physical permanent defects and alterations…..and not finding any. find yourself to be the first. very lonley.

    • There are more. Don’t be lonely. Reprogram with all your might. You can be free.
