Dr. Charles Morgan speaks to cadets and faculty at West Point about a range of topics, including psychology, neurobiology, and the science of humans at war. Dr. Morgan’s neurobiological and forensic research has established him as an international expert in post-traumatic stress disorder, eyewitness memory, and human performance under conditions of high stress.
The event was organized and hosted by the Modern War Institute at West Point.
Biohacking. Putting motherboards into people, rfid chips. Enhanced night vision. Biohacking community out of control. 2013: adding the possibility for rats to detect infared light.
24:33: Adding an device to get more functions to the human brain. Ability to see through walls, detect heartbeats. Can also be used to intercect signals.
25:44: Transferring knowledge/control from one human to another human/animal. Usages: Covertly or via drones. Humans can control other animals, e.g. cockroaches or rats. Even swarms of animals, tech already here. No need for surgeon, only need to wear a cap.
27:46: Gene Slicing – the new atom bomb. 2010: Creation of life in a cell. Combined with CRISPR.
28:37: Vaccines: “if we can design a cell to go into your body” “you can engineer ANYTHING, a unique thing that would only kill one person in the whole world”. Modified DNA injected. The future of medicine. With CRISPR they can basically make whatever they want.
32:02: DREADS – Remotely controlled cells, that can alter thoughts and actions.
34:37: Timed release of information on demand.
35:04: DNA Steganography/encryption. (Steganography is the practice of concealing a file, message, image, or video within another object). Hiding information in DNA: Records, photos. Hiding movies within bacteria. A race is on in this technology.
38:02: Memory modification: Erasing/deleting memories completely and/or modifying/changing the memory. This happens by programming a cell to go to the hippocampus. They can for ex. delete a memory of you meeting someone by release PKMzeta in the hippocampus(?) after you’ve meet them.
40:50: Hypermemory: Enhancing memory with a nasal spray. Creating a “videocamera-memory” in humans, especially helpful for security and intelligence operations.
42:46: Memory. Transferring memory from one brain to another. Memory is also stored in the body. Light can activate hippocampus, creating false memories.
48:58: You can change anyones behaviour by changing everyones memories/past. This has tremendous defensive/offensive capabilities. No longer having to persuade people, just alter peoples memories. Using false memories to control people, which is not possible to detect. “Particularly effective”. Chemical implanting of memories should come out in within the year 2020.
52:37: Training and sampling of knowledge of people while they are sleeping. Scanning people’s brains for information while the person was sleeping. Future: Brain2brain linking. Linking someones brain to anothers while they are sleeping – probably within 2023. Next step: a HIVE brain, over many brains.
