Back in the mid-1980’s there was a fascinating book written by Ronald M. McRae entitled Mind War, (St. Martin’s Press, N.Y., 1984) which discussed and chronicled the alleged development of psychotronic weapons, that is, weapons that use electronics to access and utilize paranormal forces to attack one’s enemies. If anything within this book is real, then warfare as we currently know it may soon become obsolete. Given that this book is now almost thirty years old and no such advanced psychotronics weapons have been deployed (as far as we know), strongly suggests that the validity of such claims are more science fiction or fantasy than reality.
However, the incredible nature of these potential miraculous weapons need to be known, therefore, I feel obligated to discuss them here. First up is a “Psychic Neuron Disruptor” (and no, it’s not Klingon!), a sort of electronic paranoia inducer that interferes with the synaptic connections of our brain’s nerve cells to induce temporary states of confusion, disorientation, memory impairment, loss of concentration and severe paranoia utilizing a combination of ultra-low-frequency (ULF) and radio-frequency (RF) radiation. This device might be similar to what was once known as “Oregon Woodpecker” signals that had similar effects from an undetermined, but theorized Soviet source.
Next up is the list is a device called “Lida-4” (Soviet in design) that could more accurately be referred to as “radio sleep”, which can put large groups or populations of individuals to sleep at-a-distance without their consent through the controlled application of ULF & RF radiation. Don’t we already have this? I think it’s called television, specifically paranormal reality shows or political debates?
Next up is the “Multispectral Image Analyzer”, a device which denudes or “cures” weapons of their potency from a distance, especially nuclear weapon systems. Interestingly, in the real world this might be referred to as “lack of funding”. However, if this system is even partially real, then we’re wasting billions of dollars on maintaining our nuclear stockpiles.
You’re going to love this next one; “Photonic Barrier Modulator”, which is basically an electronic amplifier and focusing device for psychotronic forces. By inserting a photograph of the desired target (object or person), the target can be disabled or destroyed at-a-distance. Allegedly, this device would be excellent for transmitting illnesses and/or death via biological disorders of new varieties. This particular weapon sounds very similar to the way radionics was supposed to work many years ago. If this device exists, why do we need any form of conventional weapons whatsoever?
The next device is a real mouthful both literally and figuratively. It’s a “Hyperspace Nuclear Howitzer” in which a thermonuclear detonation is triggered within a specially controlled environment which then transmits all of it’s effects (light, thermal pulse, blast, EMP and radiation) to an unlimited number of distant sites without warning, once its receivers have been previously planted at these locations. With this type of weapon, no missile, rocket or aircraft delivery system is required. Well, if this is true, then the entire world should immediately scrap it’s nuclear arsenals as their obsolete and worthless.
The second to the last device is known as “SADDOR”, short for a “SAtellite Deployed DOwsing Rod” that could make all the mobile and submarine launched ICBMs obsolete even before their deployed. A really gifted psychic from any country (although presumably from the old Soviet Union) would be telepathically linked to SADDOR and could then pinpoint the exact location of any weapon system or person anywhere on earth. Given the problems we’ve had in the middle east finding and catching almost anyone, this is sure bet not to exist.
I’ve saved the best for the last as it’s so way over the top. It’s the “Anti-Missile Time Warp”, which is the ultimate anti-ballistic missile system, wherein fields of energy are transmitted up from the earth to intercept ICBM MIRVs in their mid-course busing or terminal course phase and literally send them backwards in time to say the Jurassic period where they would explode harmlessly, except of course for the dinosaurs. Yeah right?
Hey, maybe this is what really killed off the dinosaurs as opposed to a meteoric major impact in the Yucatan peninsula some 65 million years ago? Don’t bet on it. My god, who actually thinks this stuff up? Where’s Gene Roddenberry when we need him? Pushing up daisies with the dinosaurs, unfortunately. After reading all this, you’re probably scratching your head going “Come on, get real”, which was exactly the reaction I had when first reading this book back in 1984.
The author had pretty impressive credentials, so I was and am curious as to his sources at the time. Needless to say, there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that any of these weapons were successfully developed and deployed. But it does give one reason to think that such incredible, science-fiction oriented devices were even conceived of. Actually, I’d be far more concerned by the HAARP system up in Alaska, as such could theoretically be a precursor to such psychtronics weapons.
