Gadit, "Terrorism and Mental Health"

Terrorism and Mental Health: The issue of psychological fragility

Amin A. Muhammad Gadit  ( Discipline of Psychiatry, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL A1B 3V6 Canada. )

...There are reports of a new and dreadful invention of weapons of violence that are called Bio-electromagnetic Weapons. According to the description by an Institute of Science in Society, these weapons operate at the speed of light, can kill, torture and enslave without making physical appearance. It further adds that voices and visions, daydreams and nightmares are the most astonishing manifestations of this weapon system, it is also capable of crippling the human subject by limiting his/her normal range of movement, causing acute pain the equivalent of major organ failure or even death and interferes with normal functions of human senses. It can cause difficulty with breathing and induce seizures besides damage to the tissues and organs.

Through this form of terrorism, it is possible to persuade subjects that their mind is being read; their intellectual property is being plundered and can even motivate suicide or murder.
Pulsed Energy Projectiles (PEPs) are another form of weaponry that is used to paralyze a victim with pain. According to Peter Philips, a scientist from USA, circumstances may soon arrive in which anti-war or human right protestors suddenly feel a burning sensation akin to touching a hot skillet over their entire body. Simultaneously they may hear terrifying nauseating screaming, which while not produced externally, fills their brains with overwhelming disruption. This new invention is dreadful addition to the armamentarium of weapons of abuse and torture. Manifestations of the effects of these occult weapons can mimic mental ill health and add further to the misery of the victims.

The potential threat from use of biological warfare agents is more devastating as they are not detectable before the attack and can lead the possible victims to a state of constant vigilance and anxiety.

米Massachusetts Institute of Technology(MIT)は、同大学の研究者が、無線LAN(Wi-Fi)の電波を用いて動く人間を検知するシステム「Wi-Vi(Wi-Fi Vision)」を開発したと発表した。コンクリートの壁の向こう側にいる人の動きを知ることができる。近い将来、安価な対人レーダーとしてさまざまな用途に利用できるようになる可能性が出てきた。


 MITによれば、既に米Microsoft Researchの研究者がこの点に注目しているという。既存のKinectなどで用いられているジェスチャー入力機能は、赤外線を用いており、利用者が機器の正面にいなかったり障害物があったりすると利用できなくなる。Wi-Fiの電波でジェスチャー入力が実現すれば、ジェスチャー入力の用途の幅が広がるのだという。

What is Gaslighting?

Gaslighting is a form of manipulation that seeks to sow seeds of doubt in a targeted individual or members of a group, hoping to make targets question their own memory, perception, and sanity. Using persistent denial, misdirection, contradiction, and lying, it attempts to destabilize the target and delegitimize the target's belief.

ガスライティング(英: gaslighting)は心理的虐待の一種であり、被害者にわざと誤った情報を提示し、被害者が自身の記憶、知覚、正気を疑うよう仕向ける手法。例としては、嫌がらせの事実を加害者側が否定してみせるという単純なものから、被害者を当惑させるために奇妙なハプニングを起こして見せるといったものまである。

Gaslighting may be experienced by victims of school bullying [ガスライティングを学校のイジメ被害者が受けることもある]– when combined with other psychological and physical methods, the result can lead to long-lasting psychological disorders and even progress into illnesses such as depression or avoidant personality disorder [その結果、鬱や対人恐怖症など精神疾患に至る可能性がある].

Sociopaths and narcissists frequently use gaslighting tactics. Sociopaths consistently transgress social mores, break laws, and exploit others, but typically also are convincing liars, sometimes charming ones, who consistently deny wrongdoing. Thus, some who have been victimized by sociopaths may doubt their own perceptions.

Instances may range from the denial by an abuser that previous abusive incidents ever occurred up to the staging of bizarre events by the abuser with the intention of disorienting the victim. The term owes its origin to a 1938 play Gas Light and its 1944 film adaptation. The term has been used in clinical and research literature, as well as in political commentary.

Gage, "How to Control Someone Else's Arm With Your Brain"

「あなたの脳波で他人の腕を操る」 TED実験ショー
"Greg Gage is on a mission to make brain science accessible to all. In this fun, kind of creepy demo, the neuroscientist and TED Senior Fellow uses a simple, inexpensive DIY kit to take away the free will of an audience member. It's not a parlor trick; it actually works. You have to see it to believe it."

中沢 アングロサクソンって、犯罪にかけては天才的でしょう。犯罪者が、自分の犯罪はたしかに世間には表沙汰にならないようにする。なぜ表沙汰にならないようにするかというと、自分がこれからも大好きな悪を犯すのに、障害物となるような、よそからちゃちゃを入れてもらいたくないんでしょう。だから隠れてやるけれども、それでいざ見つかった時には、「私はたしかに人殺しが好きなんです」って。切り裂きジャックとか、ああいうセンスがあるんです。賢治の「[毒もみのすきな]署長さん」は、今のイギリスやアメリカの連続猟奇殺人魔とかああいう人たちの心理に通じている、強烈な悪を堂々と主張するところが、これは日本人ばなれしていると思います。
