Comments on Remote Control For Humans
NTT's prototype of a consumer version of a galvanic vestibular stimulation machine really works. (Read the complete story)

"Cool! I was about to say this was junk science until I read the report's account"

"I guess NTT is copying the work of Dr José Manuel Rodriguez who pioneered this type of "mind control" gadget n 1965. The scarey part is how the Doctor believed it should be used. I wonder where the Japanese are going with this... "really"... Here's the mad Dr's words to US Congress on Feb. 24, 1974: "The individual may think that the most important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has great appeal. We must electronically control the brain. Someday armies and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain." The Dr. is now conducting US banned experiments at the Univ. of Madrid (Spain). "

"Try Stephen Donaldsons Gap Cylce and zone implants for a rather nasty use of remote control."

"Controlling movement? What's next, controlling thought? I say just don't go there..."

"In the natural world there are parasites that take control of their victims and cause them to do things they normally wouldn't do, such as making a snail crawl to the top of a blade of grass so it can get eaten by a bird or sheep and spread the parasite. As far as I know, humans don't get controlled by parasites in real life - at least not overtly. "

"Don't be too sure of your control over your own actions; take a look at this article on Toxoplasma Gondii Parasite Mind Control , which infects about half of the human beings on earth.

I wrote an article on those snails a couple of years ago; here's the video. See the article Parasitic Worms Create 'Zombie' Snails.
