DARPA Creating New Mind Control Program For ‘Brain-Hacking’

DARPA is further mainstreaming mind control by bringing about ‘upload learning.’ The ‘mad scientist’ group behind the program, Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT), is attempting to alter the way a participant’s neurons connect with one another. According to Future; “The TNT program aims to explore various safe neurostimulation methods for activating […]

DARPA Is Planning to Hack the Human Brain to Let Us “Upload” Skills

The U.S. military’s “mad science” branch — announced their Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program. The TNT program aims to explore various safe neurostimulation methods for activating synaptic plasticity, which is the brain’s ability to alter the connecting points between neurons — a requirement for learning. DARPA hopes that […]
