Before you dismiss someone as paranoid or delusional, we urge you to remember that laws are not passed for things that do not exist. We've entered into a dangerous age when people can harm people without ever coming into contact with them, and without being seen. And to date, the perpetrators have been able to rely on disbelief and lack of public education to keep this technology a secret. Today we believe that this was what Edward Snowden wanted us to know but the media did not report it.

New non-invasive sensor can detect brainwaves remotely

New non-invasive sensor can detect brainwaves
Scientists have developed a remarkable sensor that can record brainwaves
without the need for electrodes to be inserted into the brain or even for them
to be placed on the scalp.
electroencephalograms (EEGs) monitor electrical activity in the brain with
electrodes placed either on the scalp (involving hair removal and skin
abrasion) or inserted directly into the brain with needles. Now a non-invasive
form of EEG has been devised by Professor Terry Clark and his colleagues in the
Centre for Physical Electronics at the University of Sussex.
Instead of measuring
charge flow through an electrode (with attendant distortions, in the case of
scalp electrodes) the new system measures electric fields remotely, an
advance made possible by new developments in sensor technology. Professor Clark
says: "It's a new age as far as sensing the electrical dynamics of the
body is concerned."
researchers believe their new sensor will instigate major advances in the
collection and display of electrical information from the brain, especially
in the study of drowsiness and the human-machine interface.
possibilities for the future are boundless," says Professor Clark.
"The advantages offered by these sensors compared with the currently used
contact electrodes may act to stimulate new developments in multichannel EEG
monitoring and in real-time electrical imaging of the brain."
up brain signals non-invasively, we could find ourselves controlling machinery
with our thoughts alone: a marriage of mind and machine."
The same group of scientists has already
made remote-sensing ECG units as well, which can detect heartbeats with no
connections at all.
