The daily news repeats episodes of bizarre shootings, with “lone nuts” killed outright or consigned to the psych ward for their zombie-like behavior. Political thrillers like The Manchurian Candidate give us a glimpse into the dark world of brainwashed assassins, programmed to shoot on command. Less known is the long, true history of military and intelligence research and experimentation into such techniques.
Computer programmer Joe Norton, the protagonist of PsyBot, is given a scope rifle and elusive instructions for a mission in what appears to be a dream. Progressively his grip on sanity slips, under the influence of his monitor screen, virtual reality hardware, big-screen TV, and a local float tank. As the mechanism of control is not immediately obvious, like most of us he is slow to pin blame on a hidden agenda.
While the premise of this psychological thriller—a human infected by a virus-like computer program—may seem far-fetched at first, the context of ongoing research and news-breaking evidence makes it alarmingly plausible. Most recently in the news, the cases of murder suspects Rohini(e) Bisesar (charged in a Toronto stabbing), Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis, and Vince Li, who beheaded a passenger on a Greyhound bus, are linked to possible use of covert mind-control technologies.
Particularly pertinent to the mechanism of infection in PsyBot is a passage describing U.S. patent number 5,159,703: “It is therefore possible to manipulate the nervous system of a subject by pulsing images displayed on a nearby computer monitor or TV set. For the latter, the image pulsing may be imbedded in the program material, or it may be overlaid by modulating a video stream.” By happy (or unhappy) coincidence, the above patent was approved in 1992—the very year in which this novel takes place.
The new appendix to PsyBot outlines known research in neuro-experimentation spanning decades. That material is reproduced below with live links to follow for further reading.
First, take note that the VR technology is trending high right now with the recent acquistion of Oculus by Facebook for $2 billion. In 2014, CEO Mark Zuckerberg confidently declared that VR would be “the next major computing platform.”

Selected excerpts from Bisesar case study
Rohini Bisesar: Psychiatric Illness, or Long-Term Covert Neuro-Experimentation and a “Manchurian Candidate”? – by writer/researcher Ramola D. at The EveryDay Concerned Citizen
(With information reported in the Toronto Sun, National Post, Toronto Life, City News, and other media)
Synthetic Telepathy: “also known as Voice to Skull or Voice of God or Microwave Hearing technology, where voice signals are modulated onto microwaves and transmitted into the back of a person’s head, inducing within his or her brain the clear auditory sensation of externally-produced voices, in a phenomenon of hearing voices inside one’s head, which psychiatrists may unknowingly or knowingly mis-diagnose as a symptom of schizophrenia.”
“Dr. Robert Duncan has come forward to describe DOD/CIA projects in cybernetic mind-control, weaponized neuropsychology, and bio-communication controls, which include the integrated use of Artificial Intelligence, biophysics, and behavioral science in the creation of remote-control Electronic Brain Links, cerebral cortex cloning, Mind Hiving, Neural Linguistic Programming. and more. Dr. Barrie Trower has spoken extensively of microwave radiation weaponry that has been developed by the UK Navy, for whom he has worked…. the prime objective seems to be absolute control of the human mind, and absolute control of populations, even as other, Globalist and eugenicist objectives also play out. Microchips may not be needed for remote mind hacking. ‘In a direct mind-hack, spoofing is done with synthetic telepathy, a bio-communications technology. Sounds and voices can be forced into a target’s perception.’ [Duncan] discusses various techniques shared with his research group by whistleblowers, including brain entrainment of frequencies, recurring hypnotic states induced in an individual’s brain by radio control–Radio Hypnotic Inter-Cerebral Control/Electronic Dissolution of Memory–RHIC/EDOM, hypnotically entrained ‘forced speech,’ and programming ‘to perform certain actions or maintain certain attitudes by radio signal.’”
“Neuroscientists outside the military/Intelligence world, from academia and clinical practice, have started to speak openly about the remote accessing of people’s brains, of Neural Imaging wherein everything a person sees, whether physically or electronically, off a screen, can be picked up remotely (as EMF/low frequency radio waves) and reproduced/re-translated into image format via the intermediate use of a computer program functioning as an Electronic Brain Link.”
“Similarly, technologies exist to pick up and record thoughts, ideas, memories—all issuing forth as extremely low frequency (and long wavelength) radiation, in the range of 0.5 to 30 Hertz—even the “voice in your head/your inner voice” can be read now, as pre-vocalized thought. Applications in Neurocrime and Predictive Policing—reading your mind to find out if you are a likely criminal or plotting a criminal act—very much in Minority Report style—are currently being studied, discussed at conferences, and discoursed about in Neuroscience programs. This Youtube playlist [referenced in appendix] collects many related videos, including the Davos 2016 videos, on current-day neuroethics and neuroscience.”
“[Navy Yard shooter] Aaron Alexis had in fact complained of ELF [Extremely Low Frequency] radiation attacks and had inscribed on his rifle the words ‘My ELF Weapon.’”

Dr. Greenbaum and the Manchurian Candidates
The 6-part documentary Evidence of Revision contains information on Oswald, Ruby, DeMohrenschildt, Sirhan, Ray, mind control, among other topics. Recommended as an introduction to the topics in question and as a means of putting our current political situation into the context it needs.
The information on Oswald comes primarily from The Perfect Assassin: Lee Harvey Oswald, The CIA and Mind Control by Jerry Leonard. Other sources on mind control, including the other ‘lone nuts’ mentioned, include: John Marks’ The Search for the Manchurian Candidate, Walter Bowart’s Operation Mind Control, Colin Ross’s The CIA Doctors, Dave McGowan’s Programmed to Kill. See also wanttoknow.info, which contains a brief summary of the 18,000+ pages of declassified documents relating to mind control.
