MK Ultra is a code name of the CIA’s mind control project with human experiments, which had been conducted until 1970s when it was leaked to the public. The majority of related papers were disposed, but some of them were remained to public later on.
The sub-project 119 was one of them, which was about a control over the human body by the electromagnetic wave. The detail was not clear, but there was a memo about a direction of the project written on 17 August 1960. There were focal points for the experiment as below,
- Bioelectric sensors: sources of significant electrical potential and methods of pick-up
- Recording: amplification, electronic tape and other multi-channel recording.
- Analysis: autocorrelators, spectrum analyzers, etc. and coordination with automatic data processing equipment.
- Standardization of data for correlation with biochemical, physiological and behavioral indices.
- Techniques of activation of the human organism by remote electronic means.
The current electromagnetic wave technology is actually not an extension of these focal points, which means the current device is irrelevant to MK Ultra, even though they shared the same direction to manipulate the human being.
The CIA would had targeted to control the body, rather than the brain control. Any body parts are controlled by the electric signal from the brain and the sub-project 119 targeted to access its electric signal. This researcher itemized technological directions and analytical frameworks for that purpose.
However, these were not projected to the current electromagnetic wave technology, as the current focuses on a control over the brain and brainwave and does not concern the electric signal running through the spine. There is a technology to connect a device to the neural system, which is not necessarily related to the wireless control.
This analysis implies that the current technology is not a descendant of MK Ultra, nor this sub-project 119 was not successful as it does not make sense from the modern technology point of view. Furthermore, this is not a research targeting an EEG at all. There was no other memo leftover for this and we cannot tell how this research progressed, but it should be futile and its budget should be cut sooner rather than later.
There was no other project similar to the sub-project 119. The majority of MK Ultra’s evidence was disposed in 1973, but if the electromagnetic wave were successful until then, there should have been more traces than this 119 paper. That implies the electromagnetic manipulation was highly likely established after 1970s.
