From Psychotronic Warfare to Biotronic Materials (excerpts)

Vladimir Muzhesky

Synthetic Plane of Immanence

Whether electronically or materially mediated, psychotronic complexes interact with their spatial background environment and not with their generating concept. The concept itself is rerendered into a spatially invaginated structure intended to reflect and replicate elements of abstract defense. It is a multipolar semiotic system that goes beyond the tripolar systems of Lotman, more reminiscent of strange attractors: it defines multi dimensional landscapes of bioinformational trajectories instead of describing cultural codes. In general, instead of being encrypted in bioinformational activity, culture, with its codes being hacked vertically and horizontally through mental manipulation which disperses personal and collective memory, replicates and counterfeits reflections and intentions and even meaningful positions, then mutates into a new dimension where meaningful and nervous spatialities are fused to form a twisted conglomerate of neuro-space: a virtual plane of immanence for the economy of abstract defense.

It would not be fair to say that cyberspace was out there first. It always was and forever will be a model which claimed new dimensions. Once we speak about modes of existence in this dimension we cannot avoid a correlation with biological informational networks: hence a cyberspatial dummy will never be actualized as in the neomythology of sci-fi literature, but neurolized, as happened with the defense technology in the ex-SU.

Psychotronic generators are units which, by definition, refer to the activity of the human nervous system as much as they are intended to modify the sequences of individual and collective behavior on the informational level. They are materialized discursive formulas of the closure of revolution and resistance as one-dimensional social events. Biotronic revolution has more at stake: it becomes possible for the means of production to be simulated in terms of abstract representations by means of synthetic bio electronic technologies. In this context, the upcoming biospheric shock acquires a different marker: Global Recombination. The environment of Gaia becomes neurolized: the new multipolar mental-technological complexes are being translated from neurospace into the ecosphere and replicated in the environment of the Earth. If it sounds unreal, pick up a cognitive psychology reader and look at the way cognitive maps emerge and function. The search for life in outer space becomes a ridiculous venture: biotronic life complexes send their traces ahead. It is not difficult to see that our civilization finally forms itself into a spatially active system. Its undefined reality (homonified and hypertranscribed in the process of neurosimulation) recollapses: it cannot be given a meaning because it is a se mantic warp which changes every thread of our meaning-matter universe.

In accordance with the opposing expert groupís interpretation, millions o f rubles of the Soviet state budget were spent producing multiple copies of nonexistent field generator dummies. Some saw in it a brilliant money laundering operation, some criminal unprofessionalism. Amidst hot debates , experts had to reach the compromised definition of psychotronic warfare pragmatism. Functionally, psychotronics was subdivided on psychologica l and enio- or bioinformational warfare. Both of them are relatively close to each other because they are based on related studies and share many research objectives. Thus, it was agreed to understand the term, psychotronic warfare, as military exploitation of bioinformational technologies and its technological reinforcement complexes.

Migrating under varying ideological pressures, pioneers of psychotronics had to switch from one scientific field to another collecting integral expertise, usually in three to four scientific disciplines. Psychotronic re search, therefore, was interdisciplinary by definition.

What the State Defense Committee expected psychotronics to become was slightly more pragmatic: a principally innovative weaponry based on the high velocity psychoinformational programming generator complexes.

As a related weapon system, ray weaponry was defined as the system of weapons based on the powerful sources of electromagnetic, acoustic, laser, and other types of energy generators. The first devices were quite simple: the emission was used to destroy this or that system in the human body. The ensuing development produced more sophisticated results: the ray of energy was modulated in accordance with certain biosystem parameters which impose irreversible transformative regimes on the system. For example, t he generation of ultrasound frequencies which resonate with the oscillation patterns of inner organs, cause acute pain and can result in lethal in juries.

In the beginning of 1992, a group of scientists from the Rostov Medical Institute and the Biotechnology Research Institute, directly associated with psychotronic programs, put forward a petition demanding the elimination of the use and production of psychotronic generators. These institution s had at least a decade of experience of research in the sphere of the alteration of biological tissue resistance under the conditions of co-axis influence of electromagnetic and high frequency radiation. In practice, t he application of their research, which made them shut down any further investigation, was the possibility of the remote manipulatory access to the structuring level of the environments of human organisms.

One of the main principles of psychotronic technology is the correlation of human biological activity and the activity of a technological complex. As elements of the economy of abstract defense, psychotronic generators are characterized with the spatialization of concepts in the context of t he synthetic neurosimulation of space. Thus, the space of references becomes the space of replication, forming the hyperreal complex of neurospatial material by binding the atoms of human perception and processing with atoms of technological data development.

Many sources name Kiev as one of the centers of psychotronic research. It was one location of a few state funded and independent research groups. Stahovsky-Beridze, one of the independent research leaders, devoted his research to the creation of a technological basis for the support and development of human interactions with weak ecological planetary environments 2E To the same extent that this man was a genius, his son was an unlucky salesman: after the death of his father in 1982, at the age of fifty-two , which it was claimed had been caused by the extensive use of his machines, Stahovsky-Beridze jr. was desperately trying to sell his fatherís revelations. In one of those attempts he visited my Kiev apartment. He had a video tape with him where the medical advantages of his fatherís generators were documented. When I switched on the video, he excused himself and rushed out of the room. As he explained later, according to his fatherís notes, electronic TV tubes negatively influenced the human body which was previously affected by his generator.

The marketing problem of Stahovsky-Beridze jr. made me first think about the enormous gap between what we call economic production and what it recently has become in light of bioinformational technology. His fatherís explanatory notes were something between an electronic scheme, absurd poetry, and transcendental comic strips. It was far beyond the limits of the rational discursive resources with which a conventional economy operates. It was negatively economically abstract. I let Beridze jr. go without comments: anyway, his plan was desperate.

However, the generator itself was approbated by several medical institutions and proved to facilitate the treatment of cancer. Another research center investigated the effect of the Beridze-Stachovsky generator on growing seeds: positive results were detected.

Beridze-Stachovsky investigated the absorption of the energy emitted by his generators on the proton level. Through the method of nuclear magnetic resonance, he detected a change in the level of energy of the affected h ydrogen nuclei. One of the participants of the research group volunteered to test this generator on herself. After several trials, she woke up in the night from excruciating pain. She described feeling as if every particle of her body was falling apart, as if every cell would turn inside out 2E She made it till morning. The effect was not studied further.

Another center for psychotronic research was The Institute of Material Research in Kiev. Within its experimental framework, there were programs of melted metal structural modification with the use of field emission. The center was working with the theory of spin fields (the same fields which were crossed out of existence by the opponents of psychotronics). Accor ding to this theory, all organic and inorganic objects acquire spin fields: the fields of rotation. As these fields are very weak in nature, they are usually neglected in the analysis of physical systems. However, it is possible to reinforce spin fields, by distorting the plane geometry of a physical vacuum with a certain form. In this case, spin fields can be registered with physical, chemical, and biological indicators. Spin fields resemble gravitational fields in their properties. For example, spin fields, cannot be screened practically. They can expand on substantial distances with a phenomenally small level of decay. It is considered that generators based on these fields can affect biological systems on the cellular -molecular level. In accordance with the institutional report, their test generator had a 40 cm active range. This was the main thesis that the director of the institute used in his defense against the accusation of being a part of the "inhuman psychotronic warfare escalation." However, by the time of his interview (around 1992) the materials affected by this gen erator were already going through final testing programs. The research group claimed that data already available let them foresee clinical applica tions of these materials for purposes of stimulation or sedation.

In conversations with independent researchers (who claimed to design defense generators which could neutralize natural and artificial field emission sources), many of them shared the opinion that there exists at least a dozen research groups which develop psychotronic equipment. Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tomsk, and Novosibirsk, among others, were named as active research locations.

In the course of its history, psychotronic warfare went through the follo wing three stages: launched as research in the psychological transformati on of "human system - socio/biological environment interaction," it very soon included the studies of technological reinforcement of psychophysiological transformation factors and concluded in the complex of bioinformational technology. A priori focused on neurological and perceptual modulation, bioinformational technology finds its roots in the very irrational soil of human thinking. Thus, the subject of psychotronics became a conceptual bridge which joined the first studies of paranoid reaction to the suggestion of electromagnetic devices with the technological research itself. Once Vernadsky introduced the notion of the noosphere as the higher transformative structure in relation to the biological substance of the earth, many started to look for the transmitters of hyperinformation. The abstract economy of neurosimulation began in the 20s, when there started to appear clinical cases with patients declaring that their bodies were destroyed by electromagnetic devices controlled by secret organizations. As one of the patients hospitalized in the early 20s describes it, "behind my ceiling there was a device installed which made me soak in electricity. "

In the 90s, electromagnetic paranoia was substituted with the pathological fear of bioinformational control. As one of the patients claimed, her head, heart, and dreams "were remotely controlled from the Men and Device Control Center (MDCC)." She was sure that her behavior and speech were completely controlled by transmissions which she received, directly, throug her brain. "Their shift lasts about six hours. When they start, my teeth shake... I canít describe everything. Sacharov [one of the most famous dissidents V.M.] was also killed by the MDCC."

If we compare both cases, it becomes clear that electromagnetic suggestion plays a stronger role in the first case, while the second possesses a wider functional and referential frame of informational control. If we can evaluated the irrational input of technology, then it could be formulated as spatialization, as opposed to conceptualization of discourses, with the waves and transmissions acquiring a more meaningful position and shifting more to the center of the paranoid attention field, which becomes the center of the technoparanoid domains of mentality.

Finally, as an illustration, we can refer to an interview of Kalugin, ex- Major General of the KGB. He was asked if the concept of psychotronic war fare was familiar to him. Kaluginís answer (possibly due to his recent dismissal), the first in the history of the mass mediaís reaction to the psychotronic issue, was positive. He also mentioned that he personally knew researchers who had developed a behavioral manipulation technology based on this principle.

As we see, the economy of abstract defense interpenetrated many layers of Soviet society before this geopolitical monster perished. It came a long way from the microparadigm of singular vulnerability of the human system in the mid 20s to the macrolevel of antiepistemology and multipolarity of the 90s. The foundations of the micro paradigm, I guess, we can find in Kazamalliís Theory of Cerebroradiation Reflex, that he discovered in 1912. In accordance with the Italian research theory, during intensive psychosensoric activity, the human brain emits electromagnetic radiation, which can be measured and calibrated. For Kazamalli, this reflex was evolutionarily pragmatic, as it established the correlation between the human brain and ether. Marconi, a Nobel Prize winner and one of the founders of radio was involved in this research as a consultant.

As to the macrolevel, we can refer to Kaznachejevís research (although it occured seventy years later) in the quantum interaction of cellular levels of biological structures and the research of the interaction between complex 1/F noise systems and its operators.

Among the founders of the psychotronic technologies in Russia were Margar ita Telce (daughter of Dzerzhinsky, then the Director of the State Defense Committee) and professor Deluni. The main emphasis was made on the psychotropic effect on the basis of natural and synthetic drugs. But even back then it was detected that the speed of the human system transformation is substantially accelerated if the subject is simultaneously affected by high frequency electro magnetic radiation. According to the testimonies of Soviet political ex-prisoners, high frequency EMR emitters were used in the Vladivostok and Lefortskaya prisons, and the Orlov and Serbsky psychiatric clinics between 1989-90.

On January 31st 1973, in one military unit, an experiment was made which, if it were as widely known as CIA psychotropic research on soldiers, could have had an even stronger public resonance: it probably violated more than a dozen human rights conventions. The complex which was tested was Radiodream. The objective of the experiment was to investigate the influence of modulated electromagnetic radiation on a human system. The first testing program was arranged on the personnel of the 71582 military unit in Novosi birsk. The results were considered positive. In accordance with the researchers calculations, the Radiodream generator could be effectively used in the 100 square kilometer city, with all the inhabitants being affected by deep dream induction.

In the same way that after the multiple experiments with psychotropic compounds on civilians, as described in declassified CIA archives, many psychedelics were reutilized on an alternative community basis, Soviet experiments with psychotronic generators formed the technical and intellectual basis for a number of autonomous biotronic communities to sprout. One of these groups was formed by Faidish. It functioned on the basis of a psychoenergetic resonator, which Faidish describes as, "a kind of crystal structure composed of the lines of electromagnetic fields." Based on principles of dissipation, these generators formed a locus of approximately a seven square meter active range. Not a very big territory compared to that on which biotronic viruses can be deployed using todayís electromagnetic environment of the net.

Another model of Faidishís community was based on a He-Ne laser dissipative structure. In his theoretical research, Faidish connects the concept of the neoarchetype with the concept of the strange attractor, which makes the dissipative effect possible. Thus, all concrete semantics are being erased from the realm of the biotronic mentality. This is the first step towards mental justification of overcoming the thermodynamic gap between neuro and technoprocessing: the chains of the senses are equalized in level, no concepts in biotronic mentality are possible unless they are const ructed of the particles of neurospace, which implies that there can be no inner/outer (not even a simulation) border for a human system. This is where postmodern hyperreality ends without being actualized: it is censored out, neurolized. The community which performs the function of the censor in neurospace is more of an immune organ than a communal structure. The abstract economy of defense becomes revitalized with the immunity principle where people and technological complexes play the role of informa tional filters. In accordance with Kaznachejev, a leading Soviet expert in bioinformational technologies, psychotronic warfare can be defined as a military use of psychotronic technologies including their means, methods, techniques, and generators. It is also possible to define bioinformational or eniowarfare as related branches of military development. On the other hand, an essential definition of the subject of both is very ambiguous, which research experts usually explain as a symptom of the young age of the discipline. Regardless of their pragmatic infantile unpredictability, the results of psychotronic technological developments were introduced into mass production and military use because of their suggestive power. The result was not a jump to another coil of the military economic race, but the formation , on a material level, of a certain plane of bioinformational immanence. Basically, a net of objects and, eventually, a space was formed which was not always directly connected to brain activity, but possessed an ultraconceptual status: it was designed and modified to structure individual and collective mentality. It enabled the modulation of the selforganizing processes of the inner environments of a biological system, which had no points of reference in any legal systems in history. With its own instruments of control at the end of its existence, Soviet society, as a sociopolitical entity, was selfcensored out into the ultraconceptual storage of bioinformation. It was the point when biotronic hiatus coincided with social death.

Accidental Terrorism

Establishing a connection between a technological complex of a generator and the complex of a biological system, psychotronics, as a particular case of the abstract economy, makes a neuroturn in mentality, reinforcing negative mental feedback loops: so many discursive explanations of this phenomenon have already been found: existential vacuum, unpredictable turn, unification of discursive dimensions. All these theories reflect the fact that under the influence of a growing neurodimension, the mentality renders itself as an unnecessary appendix of the fusion of bio and technosystems, which forms a technocerebrum informational warp.

Another expert, Kholodilov, suggested that many researchers focus on the technological device and neglect the role of the human operator. He considered that the effect of the psychotronic generators is based on the interaction with a neurological system of the operator. The most important part of the psychotronic complex, as he continues, is a trained operator. A human system programs the psychotronic complex, and in accordance with i ts program, the same complex can be used for a variety of purposes. Kholodilovís point of view is shared by Schepilov, a member of the research team of the Eniotechnology Center in Moscow. In his view, psychotronic generators are technological systems based on the emission of weak wave-type processes which interfere with neural and nervous activities. The role of the operator is to detect, calibrate, direct, and maintain this interfer ence. Schepilov recalls accidents when the operators, as a result of a generator misuse, would fall into psychosis. According to him, numerous generators, which are currently available for military purposes, were specif ically designed to harmfully affect respiratory, cardiovascular, and neurosystems.

In the end, sets of spin generators were produced and the basic elements for a synthetic plane of immanence were created. However, with the collapse of the Soviet Union, economic mechanisms which fed this abstract enterprise were destroyed. The funding was terminated on the very verge of creating a general technology of social manipulation. The researchers that lost their jobs in classified institutions launched independent centers and started to adjust their inventions to a free market economy: a friend of mine with reliable sources told me recently that one of the most well known Moscow bankers was killed via his telephone by an electromagnetic im pulse. It may, of course, be a rumor.

By association with the research in psychotropic compounds and techniques , the 50s are usually considered to be an historical borderline, when the infrastructure of underground science was finally crystallized. Since then, it has become quite a network that has adopted a great deal of contemporary psychotronic innovations. That is why a number of experts believe we should expect the appearance of unknown means of crime, both chemical and physical. Kaznachejev, for example, pinpoints the possibility that knowledge of the informational traumas of the biosphere can be misused by terrorist organizations.

As terrorism is always a transgression of locality, it always exists between two countries, two places, it needs a confrontation to be alive. The net is more than a favorable environment for any kind of abuse because it transgresses locality by definition. However, the most probable form of digital abuse, the accidental, implies that if regarded as active transformative factors, spontaneous or intentional (it is impossible to find out post factum), biotronic formations can create both positive and negative feedback loops within the environment of a global computer network. The establishment of a priori disintegrated agent, place, and means of action , leads to neuro-simulating accidental terrorism, which is now globally possible with the unification of local computer net standards. The process of electronic impersonization puts biotronic complexes into the role of real agents of actions and meanings. The theory of catastrophes seems to acquire another subject here.

In general, the elimination of maternal biotronic environments positions abstract economy constructs as parasites towards any other environment in which human and technological systems are correlated in perceptual and intellectual activity. Hypothetically, it can become a metavirus, a form of organism which parasite on hyperenvironments, only reprocessing the very matter which emerges between human perception and its reflected simulation in electronic space. Among the potential affected zones there can be mass media, communication system, remote control machinery, and informational networks. All of them have already a syndrome of reflected neuralization: for example, the growing exploitation of the 3D effect can be interpreted in this context as the neurolization of originally perceptually based media; computers simulate a trivial model of space by mirroring neural functions and letting the brain render its functional reflection and correlate its spatial processing along with it. There is always a parallel processing involved in neurolization, imaginary chains fighting for real spatial status. Forced into synergy via virtual parallel processing, the human brain can rely only on abstract representations which posses no immanent spatial reference, but refer to the ultraconceptual planes of human thinking, the operational dispositions of neurospace.

In the ex-Soviet Union today, psychotronic complexes produced independently often barely resemble their functional prototypes. For many it became a neofetish of the information age, the objects of power which can be the sparkles of neoreligion, or the viruses of the first neuroepidemy. The fusion of psychotronic and drug markets, which is happening now in Russia, results in a bioinformational and field narcotic movement. Generators penetrate society, appearing in offices, stadiums, TV broadcasts, etc.. There is only one explanation for it: a dead society acquires biotronic status, the new form of social flesh.

Society is no longer the mode of production, it is the mode of remote correlation of human systems, which includes bioinformational processing and related phenomena. It is obvious now that bioecological and bioinformational catastrophes can not be predicted without this type of knowledge. In this framework, nanotechnology research, which eliminates the thermodynamical barrier between a synoptical molecule and a computer chip, seems to be a reflection of the mirror type of bioinformational organization.

Vladimier Mushesky will soon publish a book on Russian Pychotronic Warefare at Autonomedia Press, New York
