Time for Tin Foil Hats?

09/09/2021 8:06 AM

The Havana Syndrome cause is still not officially recognized as hostile action by adversaries,but preliminary indications are it is caused by microwave bursts.

Should our foreign delegates wear tine foil hats,or perhaps a metal mesh lined cap to test the theory?

Seems to be a simple way to tell if it is microwaves causing the effects or not.

Put on the shielding head cover when the "sound" is heard and test the effect.

You would think microwaves would be easy to detect at high levels. Maybe there is a specific frequency to which the brain is particularly susceptible at low levels. I would think they would have done a lot of tests by now, and we would know if they had found anything.

One would think so,but a lot of this technology is classified..we may be doing the same thing elsewhere in the world.

They have known about this technology for many years,and the Russians have done research on the harmonic frequencies of the skull,and electromagnetic brain waves.

The link I posted has a lot of info on this.Check it out.

Microwaves and be tuned to any frequency.

A microwave oven is tuned to the frequency of H2O,and there is surely a frequency for gray matter,as well as the water within it.

Focused sound beams could possible be used in the same manner,and the technology for focusing is much more advanced for military than for available civilian use.

I wonder if any research has been done on using a ultrasonic carrier which is modulated by an audible frequency,similar to AM radio?

Perhaps the skull would oscillate at the audible frequency but not the carrier?

This might create a sound in the brain of indeterminate direction or source.

Ultrasonic sound can be focused more sharply than the audible frequency.

Ultrasound has been used to heat and destroy tissue and in surgery.

Agreed, it could be ultrasonics, modulating an ultrasonic carrier, which then gets demodulated by a non-linear response inside the body or some other object.

I've read about museum displays where the audio (Audio Spotlight) is beamed and can only be heard at that point.

I would go with lead lined hat....

just to be sure....

Microwaves are easily blocked, so I'm not thinking this is the cause...

How thick?How heavy?

I have read somewhere that Graphene can have RF shielding properties.

This would be very light by comparison to lead.

They use a lead gel in radiation protective hats, they are not that heavy...

This hat employs .05 mm of lead and weighs 3.78 lbs....

....maybe employ a fencing mask design...

Maybe a welding helmet design with lead glass window....

Or maybe they really are as dumb as DS and only know how to put snouts in trough.

On the other hand maybe the trough contents are getting too hot to handle?

I remember there was a lot of experimentation back in the mid 60s with infrasound messing with people, but that seems to have gone quiet or all the experimenters crippled themselves.

They use focused ultrasound on some cargo ships to repel pirates,so the technology is still being used,and researched.

It seems plausible that drone neutralization exercises could have been taking place in the area and reflection of microwave bursts were reflected off naturally occurring atmospheric inversion layers...The weak signals would indicate that the source was far away...This sort of top secret naval operations would not be generally known....

Re: Time for Tin Foil Hats?

I am sure that almost everyone has heard a high-pitched sound that last a few seconds,then stops.

I am not talking about tinnitus,this is an entirely different sound.

Very loud,very high frequency,near 20 khz, (Which is now beyond my hearing ability,but I remember when I could hear 20khz.)

So what causes it?

Or am I the only one hearing these sounds?

It is well known that the brain emits em signals at low levels,so what would happen if em pulses of the same frequency and wave form,but higher power, were beamed into a human skull?

What if it was possible to scan it upon a whole country,line by line,like a TV raster?

Could it cause an interruption or distortion of brain function in a whole population?

It sounds like a good solution.

I would however have a knowledgeable person determine if the foil or mesh hat would become a resonator and possible concentrate the microwave energy within the shield. Bad image that one...

It would have to get through the shield first,so the primary focus should be on effective

shielding.

It might require full head coverage to prevent front entry.

The brain, and the whole body for that matter has an electro-chemical nature.

Interfere with either one and there will be problems.

Could a heart attack be triggered remotely by jamming the electrical signals of the heart?

Scary,but possible,I think.

Our military experimented with communicating with solders on the battlefield using microwaves, literally voices in your head.

Documents are available on the web, I looked this up several years ago.

Remember google gives you what it wants first and what it thinks you want after.

Microwaves are absorbed by water molecules, they vibrate at the microwave frequency and any modulation on that frequency. Audio has been sent to people in testing and was 'heard' accurately by recipients. I expect that the sizzling noise reported by victims is noise generated by poor power supply regulation. Your tabletop microwave runs a magnetron tube from a poorly regulated 60 or 50 Hz source, I am sure that the last person that killed themselves using one heard a load hum.

Tin foil? Nope! My Mu metal hat works fine. S.M.
