"Seeing" and "hearing" haven't been equal to "believing" for a long time.
Some people have claimed that Project Blue Beam — a government conspiracy to attempt to instill a New World Order by making the masses believe in a technologically simulated second coming of Christ — was completely made up and has no real basis in reality.
Considering how screwed up what we just typed is, we actually wish those people were right.
Unfortunately, they're wrong.
We came across a Washington Post article written in 1999 entitled, "When Seeing and Hearing Isn't Believing," all about psychological operations, or psyops. When they started talking about projecting holograms of Allah over Iraq, they weren't joking around.
What if the U.S. projected a holographic image of Allah floating over Baghdad urging the Iraqi people and Army to rise up against Saddam, a senior Air Force officer asked in 1990?
According to a military physicist given the task of looking into the hologram idea, the feasibility had been established of projecting large, three-dimensional objects that appeared to float in the air.
They came to the conclusion it would require too much hardware (a one-mile square mirror in space, for one) and too much power to be feasible in during Operation Desert Storm. (Also, it's diabolical and evil.)
So, case closed? Nope.
The Gulf War hologram story might be dismissed were it not the case that washingtonpost.com has learned that a super secret program was established in 1994 to pursue the very technology for PSYOPS application. The "Holographic Projector" is described in a classified Air Force document as a system to "project information power from space … for special operations deception missions."
Who was it that said Project Blue Beam is just a "conspiracy theory" again?
Meanwhile, the article also points out, just jokingly of course, that "War is like a box of chocolates," informing us that the blockbuster Forrest Gump was a great excuse to let people know just how advanced Hollywood's video and audio tricks had gotten by the 90s.
One more cute trick one of the boys at Los Alamos National Laboratory developed had to do with voice cloning.
The technology could take a 10-minute digital clip of anyone's voice and, in near real-time, the speech patterns could be cloned to create a convincing fake of the person… a fake that could be made to say anything they wanted it to and it would sound real.
"Gentlemen! We have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government." So begins a statement being delivered by Gen. Carl W. Steiner, former Commander-in-chief, U.S. Special Operations Command.
At least the voice sounds amazingly like him.
But it is not Steiner. It is the result of voice "morphing" technology developed at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico.
By taking just a 10-minute digital recording of Steiner's voice, scientist George Papcun is able, in near real time, to clone speech patterns and develop an accurate facsimile. Steiner was so impressed, he asked for a copy of the tape.
While the guys in the article appear to be having a good time laughing it up over this, please consider again that this all went down in the 90s. We're talking two decades ago now. Who knows how advanced this technology is today and what other technologies it has been combined with.
Voice-to-skull (otherwise known as V2K) technology is also not new. See patent 4,877,027, published on Halloween 1989, for a "hearing system" wherein "Sound is induced in the head of a person by radiating the head with microwaves in the range of 100 megahertz to 10,000 megahertz that are modulated with a particular waveform."
In recent years, there have been a large number of highly publicized crimes where people were apparently driven mad, making what were touted in the media as outrageous claims they were suddenly hearing, say for example, president Obama's voice in their heads.
Considering that Dr. Joseph C. Sharp completed the first successful test of auditory microwave technology which completely bypasses the ears and beams sound directly into a person's head at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in 1973…
Patents were being assigned for such technologies in the 1980s…
And by the 90s, psyops teams could create convincing clones of anyone's voice with just a 10-minute digital clip of them talking…
