D.A.R.P.A. IS FUNDING AN IMPLANTABLE CHIP FAR MORE ADVANCED THAN "DIGITAL ANGEL"!
For many years, Christians have looked at the development of an implantable device as one of THE signs that the Kingdom of Antichrist is drawing close. When Digital Angel publicly began to promote their human implantable chip, Christians the world over gasped in excitement that an implantable chip was now on the world scene, being promoted for all the medical, financial, and personal benefits it could provide the human host.

When Digital Angel went public on Wall Street, and when they began to get large orders, we all felt that the prophetic time table was moving ever faster forward.

However, behind the scene and very quietly, that superscret DARPA "Anti-terrorist" organization headed by Admiral John Poindexter began to pump significant dollars of research behind a new implantable chip called MMEA, Multiple Micro Electrode Array. This chip is so far ahead of the Digital Angel Veri-Chip product, it took my breath away. Once you fully understand its capability, you will realize its probable full prophetic significance, and will realize that we may have probably been pointed to Digital Angel simply so we would not be aware of MMEA.

We shall present this information in a five-part series, as follows:

Part 1 -- The Science of MMEA and of Brain Machine Interface (BMI)

Part 2 -- DARPA Funding

Part 3 -- Possible Prophecy Implications -- Blending religion with science, spiritual applications already being discussed

Part 4 -- MMEA - Is The Mark of the Beast Just Another "Satanic Insert" So Commonly Used In Covens For Centuries?

Part 5 -- M.M.E.A. - Multiple Micro Electrode Array Implantable Chip: Buying And Selling Is Easier Than You Might Think!

DEFINITION OF TERMS
Always, when discussing a matter that is both complex and ill-understood by the reader, we need to properly identify key terms. There are two key terms we must properly and clearly understand if we are to comprehend the importance of this implantable chip coming upon mankind at this point in history. These two terms are:
* BMI - Brain Machine Interface: Technically, this term defines the project on which scientists are working, or the type of Hardware and Software used to connect the Brain or Nervous system to a computer. Please understand that this chip is designed to work within the nerves and soft tissue of the body in order to gather electrical signals from the body and/or transmit electrical signals received from the outside to the body through the nerves!

Brain Machine Interface is simply the computer software that will send out the signal to the chip; therefore, BMI is the software that will interact with the chip, to control the chip and the person in whom the chip is inserted!

* MMEA, Multiple Micro Electrode Array: Multiple Micro Electrode Array, this is the actual Chip. This chip will be surgically implanted directly into a human nerve or into specific area of the brain. The Chip at the moment is a little smaller than a Tic Tac breath mint. The chip implanted into the pioneer, a Professor Kevin Warwick, had 100 Electrodes; each electrode looks like a small needle and is capable of detecting electric signals traveling through the nervous system and also sending electrical signals to the nervous system, this was all performed via a RF (Radio Frequency) device connected to the MMEA.

As you can see already, this implantable chip is far ahead of anything Digital Angel has on the market; further, MMEA is light-years ahead of the RFID technology which retailers like Wal-Mart are racing into production. As we unfold the science of this chip, you will see that it offers a repressive global government the capability of controlling entire captive populations with a sophisticated software program! You will clearly see how an entire population of the earth might actually fulfill these prophetic verses:

"... the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration." [Revelation 13:3; Parallel Bible, KJV/Amplified Bible Commentary]

"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name." [Rev 13:16-17]

Recording From Biological Tissue
"The essential requirements for a working multiple-microelectrode to record from biological tissue include:
1. A conductor forming the active electrode and the tracks, e.g. indium-tin oxide (ITO), titanium nitride;
2. An electrical insulation layer, e.g. polysiloxane, polyimide, or silicon nitride;
3. The microelectrode must be biocompatible, resistant to a physiological saline environment and sterilisation, and easily maintained in cell culture conditions for many days or weeks."[Neuronal Networks Electrophysiology Laboratory, School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Nottingham Medical School]

Carefully contemplate the basic requirement listed above for an MMEA: "to record from biological tissue"

One of the fundamental goals of the MMEA is to intercept and record electrical impulses from biological tissue. Currently, extensive tests are being carried out on human subjects to discover the exact electrical frequency of a wide variety of human emotions, feelings, and various mechanical actions. Each different emotion and/or feeling has a slightly different radio frequency! Therefore, by intercepting and recording the exact frequency of each emotion and/or feeling from their human test subjects, the exact frequency of each feeling can be identified and then stored into the BMI -- Brain Machine Interface software!

At some future point, a person may be sent a signal from an RF transmitter that will give that person pleasure or pain, with the exact frequency coming from the BMI software! Or, the exact frequency of various mechanical orders the brain is continuously giving the muscles can be recorded and stored in the Brain Machine Interface Software; this type of software capability seems to have great promise for people suffering neural damage that prevents them from walking, for example.

How scientists plan on doing this in theory is very simple. A person's body functions by small amounts of electrical energy sent in patterns that determines what a person wants to do, operating much like the Binary Code of a Personal Computer. The Brain acts a processor, sending electrical signals in proper sequence throughout the nervous system to tell the specific parts of our body what to do. These signals also travel back to our brains to tell us what we Feel, See, Hear and Smell.

If we have a device implanted into a specific area of our nervous system which has the ability to detect these electrical patterns and then transmit to a computer with special software to record and analyze this data, we can, for example, determine what types of electrical patterns make us move our leg up or down. If this data was transferred to a central computer for analyzing and storage then it could be transferred back to the nervous system. This data from one person can even be transmitted to another person, or to many other persons, making them move their leg up or down, or making them feel a great variety of emotions and feelings, and/or do a variety of actions that the controller wants them to do.

Instilling Thoughts In A Person's Brain
NEWS BRIEF: "Defense Department funding brain-machine work", Tuesday, August 5, 2003, BY GARETH COOK, The Boston Globe, reprinted in The Post and Courier, Chareleston.net, Orginial Source

"What most people don't know is that the Department of Defense is already funding a research program with far creepier implications. The $24 million enterprise called Brain Machine Interfaces is developing technology that promises to directly read thoughts from a living brain -- and even instill thoughts as well. The research, some of which is being done at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, is already surprisingly advanced. Monkeys in a laboratory can control the movement of a robotic arm using only their thoughts. And last year scientists in New York announced they could control the skittering motions of a rat by implanting electrodes in its brain, steering it around the lab floor as if it were a radio-controlled toy car."

"It does not take much imagination to see in this the makings of a 'Matrix'-like cyberpunk dystopia: chips that impose false memories, machines that scan for wayward thoughts, cognitively augmented government security forces that impose a ruthless order on a recalcitrant population. It is one thing to propose a tasteless market for gambling on terrorism. It is quite another to set some of the nation's top neuroscientists to work on mind control."

As you can see, this research is getting to be quite advanced. However, we must not lose sight of the original brains behind this technology -- Professor Kevin Warwick -- and how he and his wife are currently conducting very specific research.

Brief Bio of The Professor
The leading scientist in this entire field is Professor Kevin Warwick: "Professor of Cybernetics at the University of Reading, UK where he carries out research in artificial intelligence, control and robotics. Kevin has published over 300 research papers and his latest paperback In the Mind of the Machines gives a warning of a future in which machines are more intelligent than humans ... In 1998 he shocked the international scientific community by having a silicon chip transponder surgically implanted in his left arm. A series of further implant experiments have taken place in which Kevin's nervous system was linked to a computer ... Kevin's new implant experiment called 'Project Cyborg' got underway in March 2002 and is providing exciting results." [ [link to www.kevinwarwick.com]
The In/Out Principle
NEWS BRIEF: "Brain-Machine Interfaces: Current and Future Applications", CHI Labs, , [link to personal.bgsu.edu]
"The purpose of Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) research is to create outputs from or inputs to the brain that are additional to those that occur naturally. There are two possible directions of data flow (data from the brain to outside machinery and data to the brain from outside machinery). In whole, this research suggests that the brain is a much more adaptable organ than it is commonly thought to be."

Did you catch the extremely important phrase? "create outputs from or inputs to the brain that are additional to those that occur naturally".

In computer language, if there is a way out then there is a way in. Kevin Warwick has already started work on this principle in experiments with his wife; there is nothing mysterious here about their manner of exchanging feelings. Basically, what is happening is simply understood; the electrical signals that are detected by the MMEA in one person -- Kevin, for example, touching his arm -- are transferred via RF from the Chips transceiver to a RF receiver. This sends the signal to a remote computer for analysis and storage.

Then, if the command is given, the data can be forwarded to another person -- his wife in this current round of experiments -- who will have the same MMEA Chip with I/O capability and an RF link. This chip will then be told by the RF signal to send the same patterns of electrical signals to the nerve via the electrodes which should in theory reproduce the same action and or feeling that was originally performed and felt by Kevin.

In other words, if Keven touches his arm, his wife should feel a touching sensation in her arm, in the same place and to the same degree that Kevin felt it when he touched his arm. Theoretically, Kevin could touch his arm in London and his wife could feel a touch in her arm in the same place and to the same degree, even if she were in New York City!

Now, if this device will allow that type of activity, then the possibilities are many, if not endless. For example, Kevin has the idea that pain such as the type that comes from headaches have a specific electrical signal; we could manipulate the nervous system to where we would no longer feel headaches. By altering the electric current, we could also sedate people or reduce the affects of stress by recording our emotional feelings on days that we are happy and simply replay them on days we are feeling depressed. This is just the beginning of possibilities that are being discussed.

If there is the possibility of manipulating people's mental and physical feelings and actions, this MMEA tool would have many practical uses by the medical community, by the individual, but most of all, by the government. Imagine having the ability to direct much needed medicines via this technology to a tumor deep in the brain and have these medicines eradicate a once-fatal condition. Scientists at the University of Michigan are working on, this very possibility right now.

But, we must also seriously consider the huge potential for tight control over entire populations! It may be possible to sedate an entire population, or to make them think the same thoughts at the same time! Can you imagine this kind of weapon in the hands of the Illuminati, as they press toward their goal of tightly controlling the whole world?

The Wireless Cloud Experiment
What government wouldn't want the ability to tranquilize a entire city during a Riot, or better yet keep all of its citizens content or happy by continually feeding them prerecorded emotions! Imagine how small Police Forces might become if we could be controlled in this manner. Imagine how thrilled tyrants like Adolf Hitler , Josef Stalin, or Saddam Hussein would have been had they had devices like this, which could control the feelings and emotions of entire populations!
Our government evidently understands the potential of control over entire populations, as evidenced by their recent "Wireless Cloud Experiment"!

NEWS BRIEF: "How can people tap into a wireless 'cloud'?", By Marsha Walton, CNN Sci-Tech, July 31, 2002.

"ATHENS, Georgia (CNN) -- Applications for a wireless "cloud" may not seem obvious at first, but organizers of the high-tech project in Athens, Georgia, say there are many ways in which it can be used. The University of Georgia has joined with local government to create WAG, the Wireless Athens Group. They're building a cloud over several blocks of the downtown area where anyone with the right equipment can have free Internet access. The cloud now covers about three blocks, and it will soon expand to 24.

CNN's Marsha Walton looks into how users can tap into it.

* Sports -- University of Georgia students already have successfully tested some options ... They used wireless technology to provide instant replays on personal digital assistants (PDAs) at a recent college baseball game. for the really devoted (or lazy) fan, students have come up with a prototype for this possibility: Beam your beer and snack order directly to a computer at the concession stand, punch in your seat number, and the food will be delivered. You never have to miss a pitch, a hit, or an argument with the umpire.

* Music -- On any given night in this college town, 40 bands might be taking the stage at local bars and coffee houses. For a student unfamiliar with most of the performers, and unwilling to part with a $3 cover charge for music he or she doesn't like, the wireless "cloud" could provide a chance to sample a song or two from some of these bands.

* Retail -- People walking out of class or an office and in a rush for lunch could pull up a menu from a local restaurant, place an order, even pay online via their PDA. By the time they walked a few blocks to the cafe, their food would be ready to go.

* World market -- A wireless cloud in central or south America could empower people who have little access to telecommunications infrastructure now ... (customers will) be able to communicate at a very cheap rate."

However, this technology has a very dark lining. This same "Wireless Cloud" hovering over a city can also communicate with, and control, MMEA chips implanted in people! Conceivably, RF transmissions from this cloud could cause everyone in whom this chip is implanted to feel euphoria, depression, or any other emotion at the same time, totally at the will of the people controlling the BMI software. If the controllers wanted to sedate the entire population, they could easily do so. If they wanted to implant thoughts in the minds of the people, they conceivably can implant them.

Therefore, when New Age writings say that thoughts will be implanted in people's minds when "The Christ" arises, is this the technology which will produce those implanted thoughts?

Cheap Technology Even Third World Nations Can Deploy
The Reason that wireless transmission is so cheap is that there is very little hardware to install. All the hardware that is needed is a telecom link to a city; this can be done via Satellite or Land Line Links. From this, all you need to install is an RF transmitter and receiver on the tallest building in the City. Anyone with the proper RF equipment would have constant internet access.
Most remote locations in the Third World are all currently running via RF and Satellite uplinks; in most of these areas, existing phone lines are turn-of-the Century Era Pulse. There are no Coin Digital Lines in many of these places, so most people are using RF in some form for internet access and mobile phones for voice communication; it is very doubtful they will ever run land lines again.

In this manner, Third World Nations seem further along in this particular area than people in more advanced nations. RF is becoming popular world-wide, and it won't be much longer before we see it more and more in day-to-day use throughout the entire world.

Future Uses of the Social security Number and RF BMI
Before any person who wants to use this implantable MMEA chip in such a manner that they can communicate via RF over the Internet, each MMEA chip must contain a unique I.P. Address, especially if its intention is data transfer and receiving. The person programming the MMEA chip for an individual would only need to know that person's Social Security number; they could then program this number in as an IP Address; they could even add that person's birthday as a gateway address.
At this juncture, I remembered an understanding given a Methodist minister in 1798 that may have great bearing on this issue of an IP address. Listen:

"In 1798, a Methodist Minister, Adam Clarke, wrote: 'The Mark of the Beast will be an 18-digit number, 6+6+6' (Adam Clarke Unabridged Bible Commentary; as quoted in "The New Money System: When Your Money Fails", by Mary Stewart, Ph.D., 1983, p. 152).

Interestingly, this concept is being implemented by the European Union, planning to use it on every person in the world! Listen:

"In 1977, Dr. Hanrick Eldeman, Chief Analyst for the European Economic Community, announced that he was ready to begin assigning a number to every person in the world; and that he plans to use a three six-digit unit, 18 Numbers." [Ibid.]

Is the ultimate personal IP Address -- implanted in an MMEA chip in every person on earth -- going to be this 18-digit number? In the occult, the number '18' is a hidden "666", because '6+6+6 = 18'. Isn't it interesting that each American citizen is currently given a 9-digit Social Security Number, plus a 9-digit Zip Code? Have Americans already been assigned our '18-digit IP Address"?

Imagine the up-to-date statistics the government would have also at any given time. They would know how many people of a certain age group are alive without even having to go any extra effort. This chip would again make law enforcement a "piece of cake" as officers could know at any time, day or night, where a person was located because of RF Positioning software plugged into the 18-digit IP Address.

The average person would consider all this loss of privacy to be only be a small inconvenience compared to all of the Medical and Personal benefits of the BMI Chips. Because of the inferior education people have received since World War II, the average citizen will not realize that a loss of individual privacy equals the loss of individual freedoms. Since the inherent heart of man is terribly wicked (Jeremiah 17:9), rulers in charge of governments at the time this technology is in place will not take long to begin to scheme how to use this second-by-second knowledge of every citizen's whereabouts as the means by which to enslave them. In fact, rulers in charge when this technology was beginning to be developed will immediately begin to scheme as to how they can manipulate their citizenry to where they can take their freedoms away, and then use this technology to keep them enslaved. To work this plan to perfection, rulers need to make their plans as the technology is maturing, while keeping their citizenry ignorant as to the ultimate role the technology will play in enslaving them. The people will only be told how "beneficial" this new technology will be and how it will enhance their life.

This fact is the reason it is so important that D.A.R.P.A. is heavily funding this MMEA project! D.A.R.P.A. is part of Homeland Security, the agency taking the lead in fomenting fear of the global terrorist threat that is planned to sow the chaos and terror, out of which the order of the New World Order -- Kingdom of Antichrist -- can be established. The fact they are funding MMEA research shows the ultimate end for which this implantable chip is planned! We shall fully cover D.A.R.P.A. funding in Part 2 of this series.

Our Founding Fathers knew that personal privacy was critical to maintaining freedoms; therefore, they placed a high degree of emphasis on privacy in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Today, using the manufactured threat of global terrorism as an excuse, President Bush and Attorney General Ashcroft have demanded, and have received, the most dictatorial authority imaginable, authority which allows government to take away our rights to privacy. Once this new authority is coupled with this new RF technology using the MMEA chip, the absolute, effective repression of an entire people is very possible.

In fact, this is the New World Order Plan!

you have the technological aspects somewhat covered. but --


DARPA and the Vatican. does a bible reader see the connection? there are more questions. where did the King James Bible editors get their inspiration? 325 ad was a very long time ago. if a military industrial complex planned to use a abbreviated and truncated form of a popular and infamous cult/religion to gain supporters and to minimize resistance to their rule in 326: today in 2006 their descendants use DARPA and other "groups" to focus their ANTI-Christian agenda.

what i am saying is that we have been given a less than whole idea of what Christ meant and what Christianity meant...util it could be said that MASS MURDERERS passing themselves off as Chriost's followers are using BOGUS prophecy translation...to ensure that things will fall apart the way that they say it would. i am no atheist. the opposite.

but i have learned not to believe everything that i read. that being said -- implantable chips are scary. rather than change the subject i will say that Psychotronic Technology and Political Ethics would be a worthwhile essay or even a graduate-level thesis statement. the sooner the better, too.

DARPA (The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency),

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technology for use by the military. DARPA was responsible for funding development of many technologies which have had a major impact on the world, including computer networking (starting with the ARPANET, which eventually grew into the Internet), as well as NLS, which was both the first hypertext system, and an important precursor to the contemporary ubiquitous graphical user interface.

Its original name was simply Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), but it was renamed DARPA (for Defense) on March 23, 1972, then back to ARPA on February 22, 1993, and then back to DARPA again on March 11, 1996

DARPA was established in 1958 in response to the Soviet launching of Sputnik in 1957, with the mission of keeping the US's military technology ahead of its enemies. DARPA is independent from other more conventional military R&D and reports directly to senior Department of Defense management. DARPA has around 240 personnel (about 140 technical) directly managing a $3.2 billion budget. These figures are "on average" since DARPA focuses on short-term (two to four-year) projects run by small, purpose-built teams.

DARPA's Mission
From DARPA's own introduction (pdf): "DARPA is a Defense Agency with a unique role within DoD. DARPA is not tied to a specific operational mission: DARPA supplies technological options for the entire Department, and is designed to be the “technological engine” for transforming DoD.

Near-term needs and requirements generally drive the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force to focus on those needs at the expense of major change. Consequently, a large organization like DoD needs a place like DARPA whose only charter is radical innovation.

DARPA looks beyond today’s known needs and requirements. As military historians note, “None of the most important weapons transforming warfare in the 20th century – the airplane, tank, radar, jet engine, helicopter, electronic computer, not even the atomic bomb – owed its initial development to a doctrinal requirement or request of the military.” None of them. And to this list, DARPA would add unmanned systems, Global Positioning System (GPS) and Internet technologies.

DARPA’s approach is to imagine what capabilities a military commander might want in the future and accelerate those capabilities into being through technology demonstrations. These not only provide options to the commander, but also change minds about what is technologically possible today."


[edit] History
[[:Template:Sources see: Manuel Castells The Network Society: A Cross-cultural Perspective Edward Elgar Publishing Limited, Cheltenham UK 2004 for an indepth analysis of DARPA and ARPA.]]

DARPA was created as the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), by Public Law 85-325 and Department of Defense Directive 5105.41, in February 1958. Its creation was directly attributed to the launching of Sputnik and to U.S. realization that the Soviet Union had developed the capacity to rapidly exploit military technology. Additionally, the political and defense communities recognized the need for a high-level Department of Defense organization to formulate and execute R&D projects that would expand the frontiers of technology beyond the immediate and specific requirements of the Military Services and their laboratories. In pursuit of this mission, DARPA has developed and transferred technology programs encompassing a wide range of scientific disciplines which address the full spectrum of national security needs.

From 1958-1965, ARPA's emphasis centered on major national issues, including space, ballistic missile defense, and nuclear test detection. In 1960, all of its civilian space programs were transferred to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the military space programs to the individual Services. This allowed DARPA to concentrate its efforts on the DEFENDER (defense against ballistic missiles), Project Vela (nuclear test detection), and AGILE (counterinsurgency R&D) Programs, and to begin work on computer processing, behavioral sciences, and materials sciences. The DEFENDER and AGILE Programs formed the foundation of DARPA sensor, surveillance, and directed energy R&D, particularly in the study of radars, infrared sensing, and x-ray/gamma ray detection.

In the late 1960s, with the transfer of these mature programs to the Services, ARPA redefined its role and concentrated on a diverse set of relatively small, essentially exploratory research programs. The Agency was renamed the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) in 1972, and in the early 1970s, it emphasized direct energy programs, information processing, and tactical technologies.

In the area of information processing, DARPA made great strides, initially through its support of the development of time-sharing (all modern operating systems are descendants of the Multics system, developed by a cooperation between Bell Labs, General Electric and MIT, which DARPA supported by funding Project MAC at MIT with an initial two-million-dollar grant), and later through the evolution of the ARPANET (a telecommunications network and precursor to the Internet), and research in the artificial intelligence (AI) fields of speech recognition and signal processing. DARPA also funded the development of the Douglas Engelbart's NLS computer system and the Aspen Movie Map, which was probably the first hypermedia system and an important precursor of virtual reality.

The controversial Mansfield Amendment of 1973 expressly limited appropriations for defense research (through ARPA/DARPA) to projects with direct military application. Some contend that the amendment devastated American science, since ARPA/DARPA was a major funding source for basic science projects at the time; the National Science Foundation never took up the slack as expected. But the resulting brain drain is also credited with boosting the development of the fledgling personal computer industry. Many young computer scientists fled from the universities to startups and private research labs like Xerox PARC.

From 1976-1981, DARPA's major thrusts were dominated by air, land, sea, and space technology, such as follow-on forces attack with standoff weapons and associated Command, Control, and Communications; tactical armor and anti-armor programs; infrared sensing for space-based surveillance; high-energy laser technology for space-based missile defense; antisubmarine warfare; advanced cruise missiles; advanced aircraft; and defense applications of advanced computing. These large-scale technological program demonstrations were joined by integrated circuit research, which resulted in submicron electronic technology and electron devices that evolved into the Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) Program and the Congressionally mandated charged particle beam program. Many of the successful programs were transitioned to the Services, such as the foundation technologies in automatic target recognition, space based sensing, propulsion, and materials that were transferred to the Strategic Defense Initiative Organization (SDIO), now known as the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization (BMDO).

During the 1980s, the attention of the Agency was centered on information processing and aircraft-related programs, including the National Aerospace Plane (NASP) or Hypersonic Research Program. The Strategic Computing Program enabled DARPA to exploit advanced processing and networking technologies and to rebuild and strengthen relationships with universities after the Vietnam War. In addition, DARPA began to pursue new concepts for small, lightweight satellites (LIGHTSAT) and directed new programs regarding defense manufacturing, submarine technology, and armor/anti-armor.


[edit] Current organization
DARPA has eight program offices, all of which report to DARPA director Dr. Anthony J. Tether. (Note that as of July 2006 SPO and ATO have been merged into a single Strategic Technology Office (STO) that complements the Tactical Technology Office (TTO) as one of the two "systems" offices.)

The Advanced Technology Office (ATO) researches, demonstrates, and develops high payoff projects in maritime, communications, special operations, command and control, and information assurance and survivability mission areas.
The Defense Sciences Office (DSO) vigorously pursues the most promising technologies within a broad spectrum of the science and engineering research communities and develops those technologies into important, radically new military capabilities.
The Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) focuses on inventing the networking, computing, and software technologies vital to ensuring DOD military superiority.
The Information Exploitation Office (IXO) develops sensor and information system technology and systems with application to battle space awareness, targeting, command and control, and the supporting infrastructure required to address land-based threats in a dynamic, closed-loop process. IXO leverages ongoing DARPA efforts in sensors, sensor exploitation, information management, and command and control, and addresses systemic challenges associated with performing surface target interdiction in environments that require very high combat identification confidence and an associated low likelihood for inadvertent collateral damage.
The Microsystems Technology Office (MTO) mission focuses on the heterogeneous microchip-scale integration of electronics, photonics, and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Their high risk/high payoff technology is aimed at solving the national level problems of protection from biological, chemical and information attack and to provide operational dominance for mobile distributed command and control, combined manned/unmanned warfare, and dynamic, adaptive military planning and execution.
The Special Projects Office (SPO) researches, develops, demonstrates, and transitions technologies focused on addressing present and emerging national challenges. SPO investments range from the development of enabling technologies to the demonstration of large prototype systems. SPO is developing technologies to counter the emerging threat of underground facilities used for purposes ranging from command-and-control, to weapons storage and staging, to the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction. SPO is also developing significantly more cost-effective ways to counter proliferated, inexpensive cruise missiles, UAVs, and other platforms used for weapon delivery, jamming, and surveillance. Has mind control chips to read people's thoughts and follow them around in hyperspace. SPO is investing in novel space technologies across the spectrum of space control applications including rapid access, space situational awareness, counterspace, and persistent tactical grade sensing approaches including extremely large space apertures and structures.
The Tactical Technology Office (TTO) engages in high-risk, high-payoff advanced military research, emphasizing the "system" and "subsystem" approach to the development of aeronautic, space, and land systems as well as embedded processors and control systems.

[edit] ARPA and DARPA in fiction
In the video game series Metal Gear Solid, both ARPA and DARPA are mentioned as part of the plotline, and references how ARPA eventually became DARPA in the future. In these games, DARPA funded and created an experimental battle tank that utilises a bipedal design and is capable of carrying nuclear warheads, alongside a compliment of conventional weaponry including cannons, rocket launchers, a rail gun, and a futuristic laser rifle. This vehicle was named "Metal Gear REX".

DARPA is mentioned in the Matthew Reilly books Temple and Hell Island. In Temple, DARPA plays a role in creating the super thermonuclear missile, the "Supernova". In Hell Island, DARPA is part of the villains testing out a "super trooper" experiment.

DARPA and ARPA are brought into context in episodes of The West Wing. In one, a DARPA employee, Dr. Max Milkman, discusses the difference between the two, and focuses on some of the organization's operations and projects.

In James Rollins' books "Map of Bones" and "Black Order" the main characters are part of a fictional organization called Sigma, a covert branch of DARPA, tasked with safeguarding, acquiring, or neutralizing "technologies vital to U.S. security."

In "The Patriot" Steven Seagal's character was a former DARPA scientist who specialized in biological research.

this topic is not fascinating enough. it is not as
attention grabbing or informative as it could be.


also there's LOADS of bad news. No good news at all. When someone throws "Jeezusism" into a conversation but has NO uplifting good news, I smell the sort of fakes that make people laugh when they are told that Christianity is a peaceful religion. (it started out to be.)

Its original name was simply Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), but it was renamed DARPA (for Defense) on March 23, 1972, then back to ARPA on February 22, 1993, and then back to DARPA again on March 11, 1996

----

that's exciting.

what was happening in March of 1972 in the United States and internationally?

gotta have some good news to go with all the bad. Mark Foley's like -- a NOBODY, a pawn. there are more arrestible Washington types.

Did you catch the extremely important phrase? "create outputs from or inputs to the brain that are additional to those that occur naturally".
 Quoting:


Much more serious that all that is being presented might be the ability to "insert feelings" through interfacing the human brain with a machihe.
Not being able to feel aroused or other special feelings if you are not "interfaced".
How can they make us insensitive not being able to feel aroused or a number of other feelings?
Well does anyone know wtf they are spraying at us every day? or wtf we really eat or drink?
Disensitized human race able to funtcion normaly only with "interfaces".
Deprived from Gods most valuable gifts.

I might appear technophobic but we are so fucked up that nobody should trust noone and for good reasons. Stupid backward race that technology one day will destroy us instead of helping us.
I am really dissapointed now.

One of the most valuable virtues is restraint. We dont have this word in our vocabulary.

What does DARPA stand for?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 167374


Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. They're the professional scientists who design better toys for the U.S. military. Some of the stuff they do is totally crazy like using psychics to try to find Osama, while other things they currently have in testing like flying nanodevices and microwave pain rays actually work and are rather scary. Past projects include the SR-71 and F-117. I searched through their website, and this is all I found:

The whole brain-machine interface thing is actually possible and currently being tested by parallel civilian programs:

I for one am unconvinced this is the mark of the beast, but I am worried that DARPA is playing with this in the same way the microwave pain ray and the robotic tanks worry me. Its just a question of how much do we trust the government to use its new toys properly.

it would agree and then add that it's been that way for a while. more light is being shed than ever on things that have been abominable for decades, generations. more light than ever. one generation's pride is the next generations cause for wanting to vomit on the whole situation -- or rip the White House down brick by brick. that's how people feel about the lengths Gov't is going to deceive the majority of people. all to ensure their rule -- while LAUGHING CRUELLY at those they have deceieved and at any who have the courage to whistle-blow.

Its not DARPA or any goverment, its us.
We are doing it to ourselves the minute we allowed greed in everythink and personal gain above everythink.
Who is crazy enough not to profit from a "stimulant" chip. Who would be "backward" enough not to buy it because it would be the most groundbreaking method of altering our personal but miserable reality?
Everyone is miserable nowadays, poor and rich alike each one for their own reasons. Everybody would have a reason to use one unless... somehow society rejects these methods and decide to use them strictly for scientific or high efficiency requirements purposes like space travel, or medical for ex.

We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile.

Scary does not begin to describe that cat experiment. I'm going to have nightmares...

However, do not conflate technologies. There is the freaky mind-control implant thing, which has to be tapped directly into the brain to do its thing. The arm just isn't a useful pathway (although I suppose you could control the arm with the chip in it...) There is VeriChip and GPS, which have tracking potentials (GPS much, much more practical for this than RFID systems like VeriChip) that are somewhat Orwellian but do not relate to the brain stimulation devices.

Still, I think I would much rather avoid sticking anything that I don't have to under my skin. What happens if you need to go through an MRI?
Rarrgh!

I gotta say the 7 minute video of the animals with the brain implants is frightening in the thought that our own behaviour pattern could be controlled these things.

Makes you think if those nuts who gun people down in schools and shopping malls etc are chipped in this manner, it would go some way to explaining their capability to hurt.

Most people wont understand the dangers of the future.
It is not the goverments its us.
Whatever we allow in our reality to "make it better" painlessly and effortlessly.
Can be a habit worst than drugs, if goes comercial with the right "abilities", the right "arguments" it will affect the right crowd which now effectively are all of us since a feeling that something is missing in our lives is prevallent through society. Something someday will come to "fill" this gap.
A stimulant chip? Slap it on yourself to feel erotic, to feel happy, to feel contempt. We are talking death of real emotions there.
Little interest if someone can assume control of it, either it be a group of men or a machine to destroy us. We will be "dead" before they come and we couldnt even face the reality of being without one let alone expressing our thoughs to the people that will use which could be all of us.
Everytime I remember things I used to argue about in the past but now there is no point because everyone does them, it is the "norm", society became dependant, so there was no going back. There WILL BE no going back, as it happens every time.

We have already been implanted with nano-technology.

Err, what do you think is in the chemtrail "chaff"...?

This magnetic MICRO-particulate after entering the bloodstream via the lungs {causing irritated respiratory response, even mainstream media speaks of the dramatic increase in "asthma" symptoms among the populace}

after entering bloodstream, this particulate has a magnetic affinity for each other,
they cluster together, forming an IMPLANT, that is largely made up of ALUMINUM, which has a natural affinity for BRAIN TISSUE, which is where this nanobot cluster then migrates to, and ouila, there's your Brain implant
damned


We can control what happens in our bodies , certain supplments help in CLEANSING the tissues of the body, as well as regular practice of mind over matter meditative exercise,
use anything and everything to reclaim control of and ASSERT SOVEREIGNTY over your Life !

My sources have told me that Molybdenum 300 mcg daily, will be of great use in removing nano particulate from the body >>>>
