Part 8: The Science of Mind Control
In reference to the Montauk Project I want to show you at least one picture. There are many that were taken at Montauk—all have, of course, been taken after the project was down and collapsed. There’s one particular one, though, that I think is perhaps the symbol of Montauk, and that’s the radar tower. This picture is significant because the radar tower was built in the late 1940s, early 1950s, as part of the early SAGE radar warning system, which was perfected, engineering-wise, at Montauk and then at [UI]. But that was part of the SAGE system, and it has become a symbol of Montauk. Some people say Montauk doesn’t exist; they don’t know what they’re talking about, because the whole physical structure is still there. The underground has been sealed off since.
What are we talking about when we say a Montauk boy? That is an appelation, a term we coined, meaning a young boy—and I do not mean a young adult: it’s actually around the age of puberty, though, of course, this has been ongoing since 1976—who has been run through the program to be literally programmed. The selection is, of course, around the age of puberty, and it’s a nickname we’ve put on them because they’ve been programmed and went through Montauk. Today (2000) it doesn’t mean they all went through Montauk, because there are many other facilities which now are operational to produce the “Montauk boy.”
Let us go back a little bit briefly in terms of history in this century—I’m not talking about ancient history—as to what mind-control is about, and who got involved with the project, and what various little rivulets, if you will, all came together to produce the main stream called mind-control and the Montauk boy.
There were, of course, various psychologists, psychiatrists in the past that have been involved on the periphery of this, and came from Europe, basically, and one of the original people that have been involved with this directly was Dr. Wilhelm Reich. He was a student of Sigmund Freud of Vienna; came to the United States in about 1943 —I’m referring, of course, to Dr. Wilhelm Reich. He took up residence on Long Island, and then in 1946, 1947, he moved up to Rangeley, Maine, and put his main laboratory facility up there.
In 1947 he was offered, and accepted, a contract with the CIA, newly formed, which basically was related to finding a function as to how can a person be de-programmed—this was the way the contract read—how can a person be de-programmed, and also how can you increase the psychic abilities of young people who already exhibit such abilities? Reich signed the contract—it was a five-year-long contract—and about half-way through it he realized that this wasn’t all that the CIA wanted, and they had misrepresented to him, because what they really wanted was a means for programming as well as deprogramming. One is the opposite side of the coin of the other. And yes, they definitely did want to find ways to make psychics more psychic. That, perhaps, was part of the same program; actually, it became separate.
Reich went through about two and a half years of this at Rangeley, and then he decided he wasn’t going to give the CIA the notes which he was generating. So he falsified the records during the last two and a half years, but this was not known to the CIA at that time. In 1952, he says, “I’m not renewing the contract. I’ve done my work, and this is it, and I’m going to do other things on my own after that.” So at that point, the CIA didn’t know—and, of course, the NSA was directly involved in this also—that perhaps the records had been falsified.
To go ahead a bit in time, to the period some time in the 1960s. Preston Nichols, who was a surplus-electronics dealer and was working for a corporation on Long Island, and had a great deal of interest in Wilhelm Reich; and, of course, Reich being dead since 1957, they were slowly breaking up his estate, and breaking up and selling various pieces of his estate, and all of his orgone accumulators and a lot of other hardware. He showed up at various surplus places. Preston had interest in it and used to go see what was available, and occasionally bought something. At one of these meets, after looking this over, he asked the person who was exhibiting and trying to sell the Reich equipment, “Is this all you have?”
He says, “Well, no.” He says, “Really, you need to get in touch with one of the curators and the people who are holding the rest of Reich’s estate.” He said, “He has a home in another location in Vermont that very few people know about. It’s not just Rangeley, Maine.” He said, “He had another home. Call so-and-so and contact him. Go up and see: he may have something you’d be more interested in.” Preston did this, was invited up there and went up. L ooked around and saw much of the same thing, and then asked, “Well, what else do you have?” And this man says, “Well, I’ve got some notebooks.” He says, “Notebooks? I’d like to see them.” So Preston looked at them, and they were all hand-written in Reich’s handwriting—he recognized it from some other documents he’d seen—and realized these might be very important notebooks. So he asked the man, “How much do you want for them?” and he says, “Make an offer.” So Preston did, he bought them, and took them home.
About two months later he gets a call from somebody in the NSA. He says, “I understand that you bought some notebooks of Wilhelm Reich’s.” And he said, “Yes, I bought them: they’re mine.” “Well, we need them.” “Well, they’re legally mine. You can’t have them.” Well, the NSA said, “We need them. We have reason to believe that a good part of the material which was given to us by Reich was in error deliberately—has been falsified. You may have the originals, which we need.” So Preston made a deal with them, which basically said the NSA would give Preston the missing notes that he didn’t have if Preston would give the NSA and CIA copies of what he had. And part of the agreement was that he would never show the complete notebooks to anyone as long as he lived, which he agreed to. So he wound up with the complete notes, and so did the CIA and the NSA, which was what they wanted. That, of course, went on to be used later on as part of the Montauk boy program.
What Reich had basically discovered, and this is an extremely important point, was that there is a point in which you can gain access to the subconscious mind. And as later research showed, there’s more than one subconscious mind: there’s about twelve levels. But you can access it with the conscious mind under one condition, and that is the point of orgasm. I won’t go into any of the details, of course, of what Reich had to do up there to find this out, whether it was [UI] or experimentation. But at that point the two minds join, and you can remove information from the subconscious through the conscious or put information in, and then you can give instructions to the subconscious: “This memory will be held separate from the conscious mind and cannot be accessed without such-and-such code-number, or code-words, or however they wanted to work it.
He found that that was a key element. In other words, Mr.Sigmund Freud was not exactly wrong when he said sex was almost the most important thing in life. Freud became known as something of a sex maniac; he wasn’t. He was trying to point out that it plays a more important part in our life than most people realize. Not particularly or necessarily the sex act, but because of the relationships through the subconscious and conscious minds.
This became an important point, and, of course, there was other work being done in that same time period. I’m sure you’ve heard, or some people have heard, of MK-ULTRA and that whole project involving LSD and other mind-bending chemicals, conducted initially by Dr. Ewen Cameron for the CIA, in which he conducted this program in Canada. The CIA felt it was too hot to handle in the U.S., so they sent him to Canada, and eventually the Canadian government and people found out about it and he was almost thrown out of Canada. But Ewen uncovered the fact that these mind-bending chemicals can be used as part of a programming technique.
There were many ends; many loose pieces had to come together so that all these rivulets provided a main stream whereby there was a base of knowledge which could be used for programming someone. In the process they also found—and this was somewhat later—that the human mind—and Tesla did a lot of the early research on this, I might add—that the human mind can be accessed by electronic means, RF carriers at the proper high frequencies, when they are essentially converted into a scalar wave-form. Scalar, mathematically, is second-order; electromagnetic propagation is first-order; and if you do it in the scalar form, the human mind, the brain, is very receptive to scalar energies. In fact, you can act like a direction-finder to locate the source of the energy. But it will pick this information up, if it’s transmitted in scalar form, as a direct input to the mind—as if you can hear it spoken. Now, this became very important as part of the project for the Montauk boys in the final stages of the programming.
All of these ideas came together, and they tried in the earliest phases, around 1975, 1976, to program these boys in a very physical way. I don’t want to go into gross details, but basically you had make a physical connection between two males. The programmer was a male, and the primary programmer in the early days was my brother, Duncan. He got pulled into this project, as did Preston Nichols. Preston Nichols set up the programming, and he will admit it today openly, so I’m not afraid to say it. But he set up the programming for the Montauk boys program, and the techniques involved in the programming. And Preston had to use Duncan and some others in the earlier phases of the programming.
Now, there are some peculiarities of the human nervous system. I don’t know how many people have seen Gray’s Anatomy, or books like that, which show the whole setup of the nervous system, which does not show, include, of course, the setup of the chakras in the human body—the energy chakras, which are semi-physical. There are eight chakras. Yogis teach seven: they’re in error. There’s eight, the eighth one is the crown chakra over the head. But they’re in opposing pairs of polarity. Number-one chakra, the base, if you call it arbitrarily positive, the second one is negative: positive, negative, positive, negative, and so forth, until you get to the top of the eighth chakra, which will be “negative,” whatever that means. I’m just doing this for the purpose of showing that there’s an opposition of polarity.
Because the first chakra in the male is the sex chakra, it becomes easily manipulable. In the female the whole polarity is reversed. Females could not be used in the techniques used for the Montauk boys—not until very much later. The programming being quite physical, and they pick these victims—and I do have to use the word, victims—around the age of puberty, because at that point males are most amenable to mind manipulation. After the age of about seventeen, people, particularly males, start to get a mindset, and this becomes much more difficult to modify their mind and put in this mindset that they want—rather than one which develops naturally—and bury all kinds of things in the subconscious. So typically they’re all chosen around puberty, because you mainly [UI] up to the age of sixteen, depending on when the person becomes sexually active. Puberty in the South is much earlier than in the North, and, of course, there are all kinds of personal variations.
And a candidate was sought out. Of course, this is one of the things they have to look at: they have to make sure he’s going through the puberty period, and that pubescence has already occurred. They select also on the basis of IQ—at least 100—they wanted somebody of at least a normal IQ. If they’re up in the 200 region, that’s fine: they were useful for other projects, other than the normal ones.
And they all had to go, basically, through the same process, but they also looked at them in terms of genetics. When the program originally started at Montauk, they were all Caucasians: white-skinned, fair-haired, typically blonde-haired, blue-eyed. And in the process of recovering my memories after this was all over in 1983, Phase-1 in 1983, and I started reviewing this and coming up with the information, I said, “Well, this to me smacks like one of the old Nazi projects, the super-race projects.” And in some respects, that was true. But the candidates were chosen on that basis, originally, at least at Montauk.
As I found out some years later, there was a parallel project being run by the NSA directly, in their own way, in a nursing home in Jamaica, Long Island, between 1976 and 1979, when, for some reason, it was terminated. The man who ran this was an NSA man. And many years after this was over I happened to run into him in one of my lecture series in the South, in North Carolina, at a dinner party thrown by the people who had sponsored me for a lecture. And this man was a drinker. Eventually he got drunk enough that night, and says, “Al, there are some things I’ve got to tell you.” And he told me about his involvement with the mind-control programs, the Montauk boys, via the NSA, at this facility in Jamaica. So I asked him some of the same questions I asked those who were over me at that time: “Did they every tell you what they were going to use these kids for?” And he says, “No. They would never gave me any indication.” “Did they ever tell you when they were going to use them?” And he said, “Yes, more or less.” And we agreed that the stated goal at that time, in terms of dates, was to be around 1995,1997, when there would be the primary use of these boys. But he said, “Other than that, I couldn’t get any information out of them.”
And that program was folded. But I said, “Well, were they all Caucasian?” and he says, “No, there were very few Caucasians in my project.” And I said, “What were there in there?” And he said, “We had Jewish kids, we had Orientals, we had all kinds of others—very few whites.” Apparently he was in a program used to find out whether or not you could program other than Caucasian for the same end, which did prove to be true. So that the race was not important. This was apparently a chosen fact by those around the program at Montauk; it was not essential that they be white. That was a very interesting side-piece of information.
Well, this program, as originally set up with very physical programming, caused a lot of problems. One of the other problems that occurred, which was very obvious in a matter of a few years, was that approximately 70 percent of the boys programmed there in the Montauk boys program were programmed as homosexuals. Because it is easy to shift the sexual orientation under those type of programming conditions. Why they wanted 70 percent or so of homosexuals I don’t know. It backfired on them for the simple reason that [when] homosexuals get together, they create enough kundalini energy, usually, that it breaks the program. So they were deprogramming themselves, and that’s not what the government wanted—or those who ran the program.
When I say, government, understand that we all assumed at this point in time that this program was government-sponsored and government-run. We eventually found out it was not. Various elements of the government or departments of the government used the program in terms of the output. They did not run it. They had their overseers of it, and, of course, the intelligence community was in on it.
Along about 1978, 1979, various electronic techniques were developed which would do the same thing. So they dropped this whole physical business, because it had a very low output, and many of them had to be beaten into submission because they didn’t want to go through with the program, and they quite literally beat some of them to death. And let’s say the yield was not what they wanted. So, along came the electronic techniques, using essentially EEG-type equipment. Or, reading the brainwaves, of course, you put pads on the head in various locations to pick up the sensitive energies—very low-level energies, but easily picked up by the amplifiers and the pads. And this was turned around so that it became a machine like an EEG machine, but the pads were put on sensitive points of the body, including the genitalia, and energies were put in instead of taking energy out. The purpose being, by the use of this special program developed and put on floppy disks, it usually took two, they would created the orgastic state by means of this machine, and they could hold it as long as they wanted.
And with that, of course, they could then program either verbally, or by means of Pat Flannigan’s machine, which I showed in a recent lecture. This patent goes back quite a distance. From about 1968 the government seized it because there was a means whereby somebody could talk into a microphone through an amplifier, with oscillators and certain other equipment, fairly simple; put two pads on the body in any location, essentially—you could put it on the wrist, you could put it on the chest or the back; and the person would hear the sound as spoken into the microphone even though he was not getting it through his ears—it was going through the nervous system and winding up in the auditory centers. Flannigan got patents on this; it was one of the first patents of its type. And it didn’t take long for the government to recognize the potentialities, and they seized it under the interest of national security and it took them an eleven-year court fight to get it back. They gave it back and let it be released into the normal stream when they found something better, is what it really comes down to.
But by means of a machine like Flannigan’s, or verbal instruction directly, these kids were programmed as to whatever they wanted while in this state; then, of course, code-words were put in, or numbers, or whatever the keying-technique was they wanted; and this was all closed off: they were told they won’t remember anything, which likened them to hypnosis—you don’t, because the state was similar to hypnosis, but it was not identical. And they would be released and sent back to wherever they came from.
All right: what kind of boys did they use, where did they come from, and what was the implications of all of this in terms of the reservoir of personnel required? Initially the boys were taken almost off the streets of Long Island. Some of them came from rather prominent families. And quite literally were picked up physically, taken to the station, processed and brought back. Well, I pointed out to them before I even became involved with the program—early on they wanted me and I refused to become part of it after witnessing one of the failed programming attempts. They would pick them up off the street, and I told them, I said, “You better be careful about this: some of these kids come from prominent families on Long Island who have a lot of clout, and it wouldn’t be doing the program any good for it to turn up in the Long Island press or the New York Times.
So they started picking them up at greater distances, and finally focused in on homeless kids, street kids, if you will, who had no home, broken from their homes for whatever reason, broken all association, and many of them were down and penniless, broke, didn’t even know where the next meal was going to come from—a serious problem in New York and a lot of other cities. So they started picking these kids up because they were quite literally homeless. When they were done programming them, they would send them back to where they had come from, waiting to be used.
About 1979, with the electronic system fully operational, I went to Jack Pruett, the station master, and said, “Look: we’ve got to change this program. You’re beating these kids to death, they’re being treated very badly, they refuse to become part of it—let’s change this whole thing around. First of all, it can be done electronically now, so that cleans up that part of it. And secondly, instead of beating them into submission, offer them a carrot. Give them something. And he says, “That sounds good, but it’s out of my reach; it’s definitely out of my jurisdiction. You’ll have to go higher up. I went up the line, to the technical director, Dr. Herman C. Untermann [a paperclip Nazi] and others, finally wound up someplace near the top with a man that I recognize today, so I will not use his name, and told them what I proposed. And he says, “I haven’t got time for this; I don’t want to hear about it.” And I says, “Well, maybe the Long Island press or The New York Times would like to hear about it.”
Well, he froze at that point, and says, “Wait in my outer office; I’ve got to make some phone calls.” So I waited. About half an hour, forty minutes later he calls me back in. He says, “You can guarantee that this program will work the way you outline it?” I said, “Yes.” He says, “Go ahead and do it.” I says, “I want it in writing that you have given me permission to do this.” And he wrote up a letter and signed it.
So I went back and they threw out the man that was doing the beatings, and offered essentially this kind of program. They would pick the guys up, they were run through a pre-screening process, and then we’d say to them: “We know most of you are homeless and have no money and can’t even go back to school. If you will join this program voluntarily and become part of it, after it’s over, you will not remember that you have been here and a part of it. But we will do this for you. We will give you a bank account. We will give you money to live on. It will be expected that you will go back to school and finish your schooling”—because most of them hadn’t finished high school, and some of them weren’t even up to high school. “Go back and finish your schooling,” he said. “If you want to go on to college, go right ahead—the money will be there. And if you want to go get a PhD, if you can do it, fine. But when you have finished your education, at whatever level you decide to go to, and get into the main stream of society and working, we will no longer feed your bank account. And you will, of course, not remember any part of this until such time as we decided we need to use you for whatever purpose it may be.” Nothing was explained as to what the purposes were at this point.
This brought 90 percent acceptance, which was a lot better than something like 40 percent. And they went along with it voluntarily. And I told them, I said, “If you don’t want to be part of the program, you’re free to leave. And of course, you won’t remember having been here. A few left; most stayed.
So the program output went up and the numbers went up. At one point, that is, in my early recovery of the Montauk memories, which was 1986, I put two and two together and came up with a number about— “Well, maybe we processed about 10,000 Montauk boys.” That proved to be a gross underestimate, as I found out much later. But one of the questions will be, and is, of course: How did they continue to pull these people in? And in view of the fact that later the numbers went into the millions, how did they get these recruits? Where did they get them from? They took them from all over the U.S. Well, did they pick them up with a car and drive them there, or put them on a plane, or just capture them physically? What did they do? No, they didn’t. Eventually it came down very simply to using the Montauk tunnel. They would go into an area, scan it—perhaps agents would go into an area and scan it to see if there was appropriate material there for the Montauk boys program—they would pick them up by means of a time-tunnel, instantaneously transport them into Montauk, pre-screen them to see if they were part of the program, process them, and ship them back to where they’d come from. And with the capability of not only transportation physically in space, but also of time manipulation, they could pick them up, let’s say, at 12:01 AM some day, they might run them through Montauk and take a week at it, and ship them back at 12:01 plus half a second. They would never remember it ever happened, there would be no indications they had ever been anywheres, none of their friends would ever see that they had been missing, and they did this on a very regular basis for a long period of time.
The program was removed from Montauk itself in about 1980. I was involved in it from 1979 until about 1981, because not all phases were removed from Montauk. And it spread from there to six locations on Long Island, and every major city in the U.S. had a Montauk boys program some time after 1983. (4:20:22)
