“Semper Occultus” (“Always Secret”)

From Tavistock to MK Ultra to Postmodern Mind Control

MK Ultra ---
The Ultimate Horror of the Twentieth Century and Beyond!!


A.) Introduction ---MK ULTRA has deep historical taproots. Following WW I, Tavistock Institute and Clinic were established in London. Originally, this was a well-intentioned program to find ways of preventing the mental horrors of WW I. Stress syndrome was then called “shell shock,” but is now termed PTSD. Tavistock involved a high ranking Royal and Sigmund Freud himself. Later, Tavistock commissioned The Tavistock Lectures by Carl Jung on the nature of the deep subconscious mind.

Over the years, the emphasis changed until there was a sinister slant to the research in eugenics, political and cultural engineering by the mid-1930's. There are rumors of an earlier version of Tavistock, which trained Lenin, and later after WWI, Adolph Hitler. By the WW II era, Tavistock was a real MI 6 Agency and its stress-related techniques were well advanced. They knew how to relieve mental, and emotional pain and also amplify it, physically and psychologically. In fact, Tavistock’s recommendations for excessive use of force were used tragically by Winston Churchill in the terrifying fire bombing of Dresden and Hamburg.

When the misguided Deputy Fuhrer, Rudolph Hess (1894-1987), flew to England trying to meet another Royal, he was a privileged third in command, after Goring. Once he was captured, his mind was taken apart by Tavistock. He, of course, survived for many years as the sole joint Allied Prisoner held in Spandau, Berlin. In the 1980's British Intelligence reportedly murdered him. There is some question about who this person really was. He’s a modern day version of “the man in the mask” in the Tower of London!

B.) Post WW II The seed for MK Ultra was transferred to the USA and carried out in a number of secret programs by the CIA. These programs included much more than mind control. This is the most tightly held part of the advanced technology also partly developed by Nazis Germany with a transfer to the USA. Some of these hideous programs were carried out in other countries, for example, the infamous Dr. Cameron in Montreal.

The standard story of MK Ultra can be found on the Web, including the story of LSD. The Flower Children and Hippie revolution was guided by Timothy Leary, and others. The spread of drugs throughout suburbia and the ghetto was aimed at generational debilitation and undermining and discrediting the peace movement. Unabomber, Ted Kaczynski’s mental problems likely resulted from experimental LSD exposure as a young 16 year old "boy genius" at Harvard. It was administered by an infamous LSD advocate.

The biological warfare part of MK Ultra is equally serious following the development of artificial mycoplasma during WW II by the US Military under the guidance of George Merck. There are at least 92 known mycoplasma species. The most common, m.fermentans has the exact gene sequence for part of the Brucella bacteria. It is implicated in Gulf War syndrome and certain heart conditions.

At least part of the increase in a number of neurogenic illnesses worldwide can be attributed to the mycoplasma. Several types of mycoplasma make brain inclusions indistinguishable from Alzheimer's Disease prions. It is believed that Alzheimer, Mad Cow Disease and Jakob Creutzfeld Syndrome are essentially the same disease process. Consider the story of the 1976 Nobel Laureate in Medicine and his role with Kuru Kuru, the famous brain wasting disease reportedly found in New Guinea after WW II.

This was possibly related to the presence of a Unit 731 like group, which used sheep sera to inoculate natives. After his return from a Mad Cow Disease conference in the UK armed FBI Agents arrested him as he arrived at his Frederick, MD area home. The excuse was accusations of child abuse by several of the male children he had adopted over the years during his worldwide research trips. He was tried and left the country to continue his work in Europe.

C.) Advanced Mind Control Technology -- during the 1970's much of MK Ultra was exposed and stopped. However, some of the work continued on! In 1980 the reported CIA's front for the most advanced mind control technology, Mankind Research Unlimited (MRU), was exposed by a D.C. area magazine. This obscure company was operated as both a for profit and non-profit by Dr. Carl Schleicher.


This organization is credited in several books with inventing the cyborg, the terminator. MRU carried out many avenues of important research mostly relating to mind control psychotronics and other exotic topics. He was a past President of the American Dowsing Association, the US Psychotronics Association and was generally the Johnny Appleseed of many psychotronic related projects worldwide.


Schleicher is credited with helping to develop rapid scan prototypes of MRI technology using esoterics like bioluminescence. In addition, he was prominent in helping popularize Super-learning and Lazanov accelerated learning system (ALS). Both techniques were based on Soviet mind control technology. Several books and sites have discussed the more advanced mind control techniques up through the early 1980's when most were brought under strict secrecy control and/or were supposed to be abandoned. But most don't have the inside track into the research programs themselves.


Microwave versions of mind control were carried out by rogue individuals with links to NSA. Some of these techniques have been used on troublesome inmates in Federal Prisons including one who claims to have been implanted using technology supplied by Dr. Carl Schleicher while held illegally in Brazil for major drug charges. In his later years Dr. Schleicher championed many innovative approaches to national problems from AIDS, to Cancer to Drug and Alcohol Abuse using electronic, vibratory and other exotic technologies. Had the US Government  adapted these newer and much more effective approaches the country would be much better off!


He was a real life Dr. Strangelove with only a few chapters of his life publicly known. MRU in its golden years had a number of branches. Physicist Richard Alan Miller headed the Pacific Northwest Laboratory. He and his former wife, Iona Miller, have helped build on this story. Iona Miller is a top expert on many esoteric topics, including control of culture through media, hypnosis and psychedelic research. She specializes in extraordinary human potential.


D.) The Ritalin Generation -- The extensive use of Ritalin and related drugs has caused great damage to the current generation. Why are so many children now diagnosed as ADD, ADHD, oppositional, or attachment disordered? These amphetamine-based drugs also came from the MK Ultra program. Approximately only 25% of the military age population even meets standards for induction in the Armed Forces. Congress has failed to take action. Activists have been intimidated into leaving the country. Another solution that may have offered a convenient way to treat hyperactivity, etc. has backfired in a massive way.


E.) L. Ron Hubbard's Scientology has become a fashionable method of coping with life throughout the world but especially in Hollywood. Many famous stars are important advocates including Tom Cruise. The origins and implications of Dianetics are discussed in relation to its mind control origins. L. Ron Hubbard was a Naval Intelligence Officer based in Silver Spring, MD. Similarly Carl Schleicher was a former Naval Intelligence Officer based in the same city a decade later. An interesting coincidence, if nothing more! But then many intel agencies are based in the area.


F.) Where mind control technology is headed is not well known, but it has gone wireless. Implants are no longer necessary.  Perhaps many of those UFO abductees are actually MK victims. The near future will include Direct Brain/Computer Interface (BCI). We can only assume the real programs are held very tightly by the US Government. The hideous effects, which many of the programs have caused, cannot be over-emphasized. Reportedly, both MIT and The University of Michigan are strongholds for Tavistock influence in the USA.


In the 1960's and 1970's, many Tavistock associated professionals were deployed worldwide. Many carried out anti-American and terrorist associated activities. MK Ultra can certainly be characterized as  terrorism. Just ask the human guinea pigs! Only recently has the Navy released a new policy prohibiting human targeting with EMF weaponry. Several major Federal cases in Michigan, for example, are associated with abuses of this type, including the largest Federal case in Michigan history. The US Government has failed to take action and may be under the control of those associated with Tavistock, et al. (~Charles Stone)

Mankind Research Unlimited (1973-1999)

A District of Columbia corporation called Mankind Research Unlimited (MRU) and the nonprofit foundation MRF, operated a number of classified intelligence, government and Pentagon contracts, specializing in, "problem solving in the areas of intelligence, electronic warfare, sensor technology and applications."

MRU's "capability and experience" is divided into four fields. These include "biophysics -- Biological Effects of Magnetic Fields," "Research in Magneto-fluid Dynamics," "Planetary Electro-Hydro-Dynamics" and "Geo-pathic Efforts on Living Organisms." The latter focuses on the induction of illness by altering the magnetic nature of the geography. MRF focused on therapeutic use of EMF and blood irradiation.

Also under research were "Biocybernetics, Psychodynamic Experiments in Telepathy," "Errors in Human Perception," "Biologically Generated Fields," "Metapsychiatry and the Ultraconscious Mind" (believed to refer to experiments in telepathic mind control), "Behavioural Neuropsychiatry," "Analysis and Measurement of Human Subjective States" and "Human Unconscious Behavioural Patterns."

Employing some old OSS, CIA and military intelligence officers, the company also engaged the services of prominent physicians and psychologists including E. Stanton Maxey, Stanley R. Dean Berthold, Eric Schwarz, Eldon Byrd, plus many more. MRU lists in its Company Capabilities "brain and mind control."  Satellite franchises were incorporated in Texas and California, and there were regional representatives throughout the US.
