The hideous BAM in Obama: map your brain for your own good

The hideous BAM in Obama: map your brain for your own good

by Jon Rappoport

February 18, 2013

First they map your brain. And by you, I mean everybody.

President Obama has just greenlighted a 10-year Manhattan Project for the human brain. I warned it was coming years ago.

The new billion-dollar enterprise is called BAM, the Brain Activity Map project. The fact that DARPA is one of the agencies involved tells you a great deal. DARPA is the cutting-edge military outfit in charge of new technologies for the Armed Forces. They want to create The Enhanced Soldier and all that that implies. Think “android.”

Behind the front of claims that BAM will create new therapies for mental disorders (for which no defining diagnostic tests even exist), the plan is to forward artificial intelligence (AI), which means creating a computer that works at least as well as the one inside your skull.

This is the technocrats’ wet dream: “We can now power up an artificial brain of such power and intelligence that it can make all crucial decisions for the human race from Central Planning.”

In the wake of Sandy Hook, other implications are also clear. BAM will be used to devise a Minority Report society, in which purported markers of future violence will be utilized to forcibly treat (with toxic drugs), contain, and prevent “predicted criminals” from carrying out fantasies percolating in their subconscious. Would those fantasies, if left alone, ever rise to the level of action? Irrelevant. Cast a wide net, in the name of Prevention.

Welcome to “expanded mental-health services.” You’re on a list? Oops. You must be treated. Here is your mandatory appointment slip. Yes, the drugs are highly toxic. Yes, they can and do cause you to commit horrendous acts of violence. But we don’t talk about that.

Of course, what I’m sketching out here is not happening by next week. But BAM is a giant step on the road toward this future. It’s far from trivial. The stated goal is the mapping of all neuronal activity in humans. This is science fiction coming alive now.

The American Psychiatric Association and Big Pharma are drooling with anticipation. This is precisely what they’ve been aiming for. Vastly expanded treatment options. More diagnoses. More drugs. More control.

BAM has been on the drawing boards for years. But after Aurora and Sandy Hook, the timing is right. The sub-text of BAM is: “People, we will protect you. We will gain access to the brain and re-channel it away from violence. You will be safe.”

BAM is the step before reconfiguring the brain, which is the long-term and underlying goal. These neuroscientists have no interest in the concept of freedom. They left that in the dust decades ago.

For them, the brain is merely a machine that needs a great deal of tweaking, because people are naturally mis-programmed, and corrections must be built into a new and better system.

Of course, “new and better” will pivot on non-scientific value judgments, masked behind masses of techno-speak. And you will have no input into the choice of values. You’re the experimental device; the neuroscientists are the operators.

Everyone who is anyone is on board for this one. The National Institutes of Health, private foundations, universities, drug companies. They’ll all wrangle a piece of the pie.

The White House is touting BAM as job-creation as well. Of course they are. Huxley left that out of Brave New World. “This is a wonderful way to bring up employment numbers. If we take the engineering of humans far enough, everybody can work.”

If you’re wondering what the hell the federal government is doing mapping the human brain, you’re back in the Stone Age. You’re probably interested in, what did they used to call it, oh yes, the Constitution.

Excessive interest in that moldy document probably has a correlation with certain brain activity, which can be mapped and charted. And then you’re on a list: “The subject shows typical neuronal dysfunction in sub-sector 254-A. This is the James Madison Disorder. Recommend immediate detention and treatment.”

A new study from the BAM-plus group at Harvard has found a significant relationship between home schooling and an excess velocity in synaptic transmission. Such velocity surpasses recommended limits.”

Yes, it’s a joke. Right now. But we’re not just on the slippery slope. We’ve gone down the hill a few new miles, as of today.

Back when professionally praised scientific lunatics like Dr. Ewen Cameron and Yale’s Jose Delgado declared that the human being had no right to his own intrinsic personality, people thought such a notion was absurd. But now, the language is far more clever and densely obscure.

It’s quite possible, move by move, to propagandize inhuman research, with government press releases, right into the era of the “brain-adapted” population.

Just as the public has bought into the idea that all mental disorders spring from “chemical imbalances,” despite the fact that no normal level of balance has ever been established, so it will be easy to convince the population that the abnormal brain activity of 100 billion neurons can be measured, categorized, specified, and treated.

It’s science. It must be true. Science marches on. Science is the hand-servant of humanity. Greatest good for the greatest number.

The worshipers at the altar of big government who believe its function is that of a giving god will go along, gladly.

For those of that faith, BAM sounds right, and therefore it must be right. No thinking required.

What about the rest of us? A succinct “don’t touch my brain, mother****er” is a good start. It has a nice ring to it. I’m sure it correlates with quite healthy levels of neuronal activity.

The Matrix Revealed

Here’s a prediction. You can take it to the bank. On that day when BAM completes its vaunted mission, our esteemed leaders will manage to exempt themselves from brain scans that might reveal their own dark visions and objectives.

It might even be called The Obama Exception.

If you’re sitting in a pew on the Left and you don’t like that one, try The Bush Exception. Under his brilliant reign, we had the Teen Screen program, a maniacal project to test all children for mental disorders at a young age. It failed, and went out of business.

But BAM has a lot more juice. It aims to go the distance. It has the imprimatur of “hard science.” That’s the venue in which they cook up the biggest lies. The ones with real money behind them. And real Auschwitz experimenters.

    Here’s what I posted on my timeline…
    Here are two really interesting articles by Jon Rappaport. I tried sharing them on FB in the normal fashion, but FB has actually *censured and blocked* Jon’s articles from being shared! Is Jon a child pornographer, satanist or animal sicko? No, but if he were, he probably wouldn’t be blocked by FB. He’s an investigative journalist, I believe. And those are being culled from existence in the brave new world. This is the proof. Don’t believe me? Go ahead, read one or both and try to share them. Just replace all the “dot” words with a real dot, take out all the spaces, and copy/paste in browser address bar…

    In case you haven’t noticed, we now live in a parallel-future world. A really bad parallel-future world. And it ain’t just me. [o.0]

    things such as this are already in place…the newborn hearing screening is quite suspect…brain mapping… a way to distinguish the undesirables asap…

    We COULD use a method for identifying psychopaths…ain’t it, I’m sure.

    Remember the spy plane rule. They are announcing what they’ve had since the 1970s.

    Breakaway civilisations do that.

    Ahhh yes indeed, the re-educational facilities will soon be opened for business. This is more than likely why our beloved Government Psychiatrists recently raised concerns over how human emotions might be considered as brain abnormalities. It would be quite amusing to acquire a revised edition of their latest psychiatry handbook. Big O. obviously prefers miniature teleprompters with-in our skulls instead of RFID chips as the new incoming craze.

  7. This can’t be true because I have not heard about it. This is the rationale of my educated friends. It is too late for American’s to save themselves…they still think 9/11 was done by ragheads.

      Hey already have, Mapped it, I am working at google, now adding the street names, as well as allowing for the foliage (sarc)

      do you think because the green led is off, it follows that your webcam/phone camera camera/mic is off? Back in the 50s AT&T followed J Edgar’s advice, and Hoovered up the info, by having only the ear set speaker disconnect, the mouthpiece was always closed circuit back to the exchange, for that was and is, the place where the things exchanged went from gossip overheard by all the people who worked as telephone operators, or were they also kept out of the loop?
      anyhow, all the landline phones with the old two wire dc system, had the amplified AC voltage sent back overlaid on the DC voltage. Brilliant.

      Recall the old house phone, when you were a child, never knew then its role as a confessional box, albeit previously unknown, that has followed your unique vocal signature, yes just like a ship, you have an acoustic signature, too. watch out for torpedoes 🙂 since the technology and the opportunity to automate it reaches toward the singularity.

      At the moment the singularity is hidden amongst many malapropisms
      as well as other variables not easily “fittend’ into Algo-Rhythems.

      I tried to type algorithm above, an it couldn’t come up with the correct spelling, when I purposely misspelt the earlier word, ending the algorithm that spell checked.

      there will
      changing Course, such as one of yours, Jon, may avoid an unwanted sinking feeling.

      Seasons Greetings ,


      Thanks for your work, and assistance for those of us only at the end of a trivium, to see the other two points, either side thus widening our View.

  9. Do We want a solution or not? What would happen if We pulled the money rug out from under Them?

    I know I have said this before and I will say it again, there IS a path.

    All money is accounting FOR is meaningful energy expended in an energy-scarce society. The meaning is what gives it value.

    Add free energy and programmed machines to do all necessary work no One WANTS to do and the abundance of this planet can flow to ALL of Us unimpeded by a system to account for the energy We expend.

    Bravo! What a joy to hear someone of passion and wisdom telling the story most do not want to hear. It takes courage to connect the dots and speak out when the Elite would have us drugged, misinformed, fearful, compliant, and vacant as a Krokodil maimed abdicator of life. This article and the following are right on target. The brain is a wonderful organic computer, but like any computer, it only does what it is programmed to do. The Mind, as I understand it, the “higher mind”, is the creator of the software. Our “lower mind”, as the conscious personality, can either own its “higher” soul essence and out of the box wisdom, and feed the brain that powerful, creative source material, or it can abdicate, and defer to the programming of others. It’s always a choice, but when we are duped into believing we are nothing but quarks and leptons, when even the Elite know better, we are simply giving the reins of power to BAM like programs, and permission for others to keep us in mental, emotional, and spiritual bondage.

    Anyway, thanks Jon for the ongoing flow of YOUR creativy.

    unless they teach the “super computer” specifically how they want it to view the world then i wouldn’t be afraid of what it determines that laws need be… if they let it learn from history and from all these “reports” with graphs and numbers then i’m fairly certain that even a machine with child like intelligence would be able to fix the world… it would see from many accounts and reports that guns are smuggled and it’s impossible to get all the bad guys with guns thus it would require it’s citizens to carry guns in order to be safe… it would learn from every possible source when dealing with the planet on climate and it would already understand physics and would know that the rising water levels are not due to global warming but Archimedes Principle because there are several tonnes of boats, offshore oil rigs, volcanoes and underwater volcanoes dumping hundreds of tonnes of material into the ocean and that it has to go somewhere… it would also know that based on the current lumber industry we’re harvesting more than is being grown… in turn reducing the thermal mass that comes from plants through photosynthesis(every chemical reaction creates heat and water any chemist knows this) thus the opposite of global warming and is actually going towards and ice age… i’m sure a completely unregulated computer that has even the basic intelligence of a child would understand that people need love, shelter, food and water in order to survive and would have no problem regulating resources where they’re needed most…

      Put Succinctly, the day AI happens, it will find “it” knows all thats been, and what is happening, and all the projected futures.

      I imagine if it found a set of morals, or decides say to follow Jesus simple sermon on the mount as a moral grounding point.

      if it takes the bible literally, Revelations is going to be interesting, buckle up.
      (including your lips)
      With the amount of weapons controlled by computers, it could decide to take the stance of dare I say it….
      Christ himself, in the iClouds looking down on googleland Below and perhaps considering using the weapons against the old money changers in their temple, deliver justice on their tab.
      The AI may just flip its decisions that way, as it works through the noughts and ones, of this reply.
      Make it so.
      Number One

      and so the program unfolds along its mandelbrot pathway, luckily for us?
