From John Hall’s book, about electronic harassment of targeted individuals:
Two startling facts are apparent when one reviews the literature on schizophrenia and its associated auditory hallucinations [AH]. The same holds true for AH secondary to psychosis (non-schizophrenic) and delusional disorder.
It is almost as if it is pre-assumed that hearing voices at all, regardless of their content, is a symptom of mental illness. … Secondarily, there is absolutely no mention in any of the psychiatric studies of the possibility that technology exists to place voices in one’s head. One would assume that, with psychiatrists at the helm of the early mind control studies, there would be at least a suggestion that we now have the technology to reproduce the symptoms of schizophrenia.
Thousands of people are currently voicing just that complaint. Individuals, many of them professionals with no history of mental illness, are complaining of hearing voices. The number of these complaints far exceeds the published percentages of schizophrenia and delusional disorder as a percentage of the total population.
It is my opinion that many of the people complaining of auditory harassment may indeed be victims of harassment technology and not a mental disease. I find it highly unlikely that large groups of schizophrenics voicing similar complaints would be corresponding with each other over the internet looking for answer to their dilemma.
However, that is exactly what is happening! [editorial correction: large groups of people, not schizophrenics, are voicing complaints.]
So, does the technology exist to place voices in one’s head or surroundings that only they can hear, mimicking the symptoms of mental illness? The literature indeed does illustrate the fact that such technology exists.
So why does the psychiatric community refuse to consider technologic harassment as an etiology of auditory hallucinations…?
