If you are looking for answers as to what is going on in the world today and/or are trying to understand the book of Revelation, you have probably run across some websites of crazy conspiracy theorists with outlandish claims concerning the use of mind control.  I guess you’ll have to add my site to that list now.  This is where my skepticism would always kick in, where I drew the line between what is most likely going on and what are purely paranoid ravings . . . until yesterday.

As farfetched as mind control sounds, (and I can’t believe I’m even believing it is possible myself) I read something yesterday that changed my mind.  Of course, it wasn’t just this, it just happens that this was what finally caused me to believe. ( Certain things just jump out at me.  One was the (blue) Norway Spiral, most likely projected from the nearby ionospheric heater [the equivalent of our HAARP in Alaska].  And there were enough plausible things said regarding  The NASA Blue Beam Project for me not to dismiss the idea completely.)  summary of Blue Beam Project

Yesterday, while skimming the news, I was intrigued by the summary of an article and went on to read it.  What I read was an article detailing research on optogenetics–how the brain turns perceptions into actions (what makes one decide to act on what they sense).

Somewhere, I had read that when voices are being projected into your head, you ‘hear’ them in the front of your head, rather than through your ears.  I’m also pretty sure they said that they could be projected in through your eyes.

This may mean that when Jesus warned us, He was also referring to a specific event that would occur.  (from what I understand, a specific event is planned: ‘Night of the Thousand Stars’ [scroll down to step 4].)

“At that time if anyone says to you ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.  For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect–if that were possible.  See I have told you ahead of time.  So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert.’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms.’ do not believe it.  For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.”

Back to where we were . . . The research is aimed at understanding how different brain circuits work.  In order to understand, it is necessary for the scientists to control a brain circuit, so that they can activate specific neurons and learn what each one does.

The research consists of changing a virus into a package that will implant a certain gene into neurons.  (Viruses invade cells and implant their DNA in them.) In order not to have every neuron activated, part of the package is a ‘promoter’ sequence of proteins that is compatible with the neurons they want to activate.

Now that the package is inserted into the cells (the brain is infected with the virus), and only the chosen neurons will respond, light of the proper wavelength is applied.  (I may refer to the wavelength of light that we perceive as blue, because it was mentioned in the article–but I would presume that many different wavelengths could be used, with viral packages designed to respond to their particular wavelength/color.  The article inferred as much.)

As a note-when testing mice, an optic fiber was threaded into their skull so that the light could be applied to the brain.  Later in the article it is mentioned that they are

“designing a light source that would weigh a fraction of a gram so that animals can walk around freely rather than being tethered to a fibre-optic cable”.

Illustration of the procedure explained above

What stands out to me is that once the neurons in the brain are mapped, it would then be possible to tell them what to do, using blue light, after the brain (neurons) have been infected with the virus that causes them to respond to the blue light.


“Deisseroth and Boyden have discovered or engineered many other opsins that allow neurons to be manipulated in different ways, including neural silencers.”  (emphases mine)

Would I be wrong to interpret ‘neural silencers’ as paralyzers?  Paralyzers of movement?  Maybe paralyzers of thought and perception as well?)

(Did I mention that the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency–DARPA–has awarded Deisseroth, Sabes and Shenoy a 2 year $14.9 million dollar grant for conducting their research? And that Deisseroth & Sabes also received another $1.6 million research grant from the National Institutes of Health?

*Karl Deisseroth:  pioneered the field of optogenetics, beginning in 2005.

*Philip Sabes: neuroscientist, at the Keck Center for Integrative Neuroscience at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

*Krishna Shenoy: a primate electrophysiologist at Stanford University who has been working closely with Deisseroth for two years to explore how neurons in the brain’s motor cortex control arm movements.)

Let me summarize.  It is now possible, to differing extents (in mice, rats and primates) to infect the brain with a virus that has a ‘package’ attached, then use a particular wavelength/color of light to cause the animal to perform (or  not perform?) certain actions–if they are tethered to a fiber optic strand, which will later be replaced by a tiny light source that is attached to (?) or implanted into (?) the animal.

So, when this is applicable to humans (and that is the intent–first mice, then rats and birds, then primates, then humans), the test subjects’ brains will be infected with a specially designed virus and a tiny source of light will be attached to, or implanted in, their head.  Then, the light source can be remotely controlled to cause certain neurons to respond–neurons that cause the body to perform whatever action the researcher wants it to perform . . .

  • Is it not feasible then, that a number of different, specially designed viruses can be used to infect the test subject’s brain, which will each respond to a different color of light, and control different actions?  Yes.  The quote above confirms that.  The ‘opsins’ are genes that respond to certain colors of light, that are implanted into the neuron by the virus.  ‘The package’ refers to an opsin, coupled with a promoter, as explained above.
  • Is it possible to create a tiny light source that is able to deliver light of a multitude of different wavelengths?  I would assume it would be fairly simple to expand from the capability of producing one color to being able to produce many colors.
  • If this light source can be remotely controlled to produce a multitude of colors, is it not possible that a computer could remotely trigger a choreographed sequence of colors that produce a certain sequence of actions?

(I wonder if we would perceive that as a sparkling rainbow of light?)

I keep wanting to think of this tiny light source as a tiny computerized chip that would be applied to the forehead.  I am not saying that to cause people to fear this would be ‘The Mark Of The Beast’–although it certainly could be, and is scary enough already if it can control some of our actions.

I am presenting what might be a plausible reason for people to have something applied to their forehead–aside from being a mark of membership.  When evil forces are ruling the world, and every single one of their followers have their mark applied to their body–is it not likely they would make the most of that opportunity?

I don’t want to mislead anyone.  I don’t know what The Mark will be.  I don’t want anything I say to cause you to form a belief as to what it will (or won’t) be, other than the explanation the Bible gives.

As I stated in a previous post,

My opinion is  ‘not being able to buy or sell without The Mark’  isn’t indicating the purpose of  The Mark, but is telling us what the punishment is for those who are in opposition to satan’s kingdom (as evidenced by their refusing to take the mark of membership)

But I also suspect that The Mark Of The Beast may be more than a mere tattoo–that it has capabilities of some sort, that can be triggered remotely.  It is possible that The Mark will be an integral part of a plan for mind control and remote monitoring of the world’s population.
