FOI The Swedish Defense Research Institution summary of their public records of brain technology 2011
FOIs Department for MSI conducts research and development of methods for valuing and developing the relationship between man, machine and system. Maximum use in system during all life cycle requires taking into account their needs, possibilities and constraints in the development of technology, system and methods.
FOI develops systems with emphasis on the interaction between people and technology. The goal is that systems be designed so that human cognitive potential, i.e. the ability to perceive, understand, and sorting information, can be utilized for maximum system effect. Key activities are human information retrieval, information management, situation awareness, operational performance, training and education.
Our work is focused on the interaction between humans and technology and the requirements of tasks. We develop and integrate behavioral and psycho-physical knowledge about human behavior in complex and stressful environments. In addition to studies in the operating environment, we perform various simulations for our customers. We have unique tools for the valuation of human behavior and performance as well as methods for the characterization and modeling of human behavior. Our experience and knowledge of man in military systems enable unique contributions to the development of civil systems.
THE MANAGEMENT OF HSI, HUMAN-SYSTEM INTERACTION
Central to our work is that decision makers can benefit from relevant information. Through our research on human-system interaction (MSI) and the management methodology issues, we can determine what the needs are and how they should be met. Often, information fusion is an important detail for the final decision support. The knowledge we create can also support the safety of society in terms of prevention and operational management.
Our biggest customer is the Armed Forces. FOI supports and participates in the development of new management systems by studying and examining management methodology.
Decision-makers need decision alternatives that provide flexibility and added value in a short term perspective. FOIâs Department for Defence Analysis produces data and create methods, tools and working methods that make for good decisions.
Clients are primarily in total defense authorities where operations research groups directly involved in various studies and planning jobs. The department also conducts research and investigative projects for business and for those of the scientific community.
The management of HSI, Human-System Interaction
Humans and Technology
Rapid technological development is making increasing demands on peopleâs ability to act and function together with advanced systems. FOI conducts extensive research on human interaction, physiological conditions and limitations.
Humans are a natural component of most modern systems. FOIâs breadth of research in this area provides an overview of the solutions required to get functional systems. Based on human functioning and capacity FOI conducts research in the HSI (human-system interaction), physiology, traumatology and emergency medical care.
Operations in the defense research often involves large physical burden on people at risk of serious injury.
Nanotechnology opportunities and limitations
Nanotechnology has recently become a term that shows up in everything from medicines and pans to military intelligence systems. Nano is a prefix meaning one billionth, and comes from the Greek word nano, meaning dwarf. A nanometer is one millionth of a millimeter.
FOI conducted research on nanotechnology, even before the concept became so hot that it is today âŠ The knowledge we have built up by the applied defense research can now through FOI training courses may also be other players to share.
(Own additions: National Board of Health Director-General wrote to one of us that they have no responsibility for nanotechnology related to the brain and the research project as the governmentâs directives are designed today.)
At the department of information systems, we put people first and develop smart solutions ranging from data collection through advanced sensors into innovative presentation system. It provides smart solutions that increase the userâs ability to form an understanding of the position to be able to make better decisions.
Our research spans the entire chain from sensors to decision support. Sensors or arrays of sensors can provide early warning, monitoring events, helping to control the actions and map the extent of the injury. Our research in IT security, communications and electronic warfare are studying how information from the sensors to safely reach the decision maker. There will ensure ago FOI research in data fusion, systems and human-system interaction that the user can understand and translate that information into effective decisions.

MAN vs MACHINE
Politically planned violations of human rights goes on in all EU-nations, directed to increase state power and reduce human influence. In Sweden, the FOI (Swedish Defense Research Institution) has for decades been developing remote control systems for our neurological functions, via bio-chips injected at health care. In FOI:s annual report, they describe the project as monitoring and changing the cognitive functions of people throughout their life span, i.e. thoughts, perception and common sense.
Sweden’s most dangerous criminal organization. The FOI ruins both democracy and human rights by connecting the human brain to supercomputers.
The EU-Commission’s Ethical Council chaired by the Swedish Professor Goran HermerĂ©n, in 2005 delivered a 30-page document in protest to the EU-Commission. They declared that this technology was a threat to both democracy and human autonomy in all EU-nations:
âBrain-computer interface, or direct brain control:the technologies involved are communication technologies: they take information from the brain and externalize it…Freedom of researchers may conflict with the obligation to safeguard the health of research subjects…the freedom to use implants in ones body, might collide with potential negative social effectsâŠHow far can such implants be a threat to human autonomy when they are implanted in our brains?…How far should we be subject to the control of such devices by other people using these devices?…The use of implants in order to have a remote control over the will of people should be strictly prohibited…To what extent will this technology be misused by the military?â
FOI Director Jan-Olof Lind,cheif of the institution founded on the raping of humans. He should be held legally responsible for crimes against human rights.
This planned population project, does not only remove human rights, but transforms us via behavioral manipulation with invasive brain technology. FOI wrote in its program: âWe have unique tools and methodologies for the modeling of human behavior…The goal is to design systems able to exploit human cognitive potential (i.e. the ability to perceive, understand and organize information) throughout the course of a personâs life timeâŠRegardless that the consequences of this for people are strong physical burden to bear, it includes as well a risk of serious injuryâ.
The systems function via two-way radio communication, implants and supercomputers. The EU-board wrote: âHow far should we let implants get âunder our skinsâ?…Indeed, individuals are dispossessed of their own bodies and thereby of their own autonomy. The body ends up being under othersâ control. Individuals are being modified, via various electronic devices, under skin chips and smart tags, to such an extent that they are increasingly turned into networked individuals…Does a human being cease to be such a âbeingâ in cases where some parts of his or her body â particularly the brain â are substituted and/or supplemented by implants?â
Prime Minister Fredrik Reinfeldt has accepted the use of humans in experimental reserach and behavioral manipulation. He has also supported FOIÂŽs declaration of abuse of humans in the name of science.
This is a cause of both madness, and anti-social trends in our societies. The brain project has been developed in secrecy for decades; the mentally ill have been put to sleep and implanted with electrodes in their brains and hospitals are injecting brain chips into unwitting patients on a large scale.
Another view of the military conquest of the brain. The Department of Defense has taken over the Karolinska InstituteÂŽs neuroscience, and FOI-managers direct the operations. A similar relationship exists for other parts of Karolinska Institute, which is controll
The threat to human rights, freedom and a civilized society could not be more serious or totalitarian. It does not only place a person behind an iron curtain, but create a brain barrier for oneâs own thoughts and personality. The project utilizes many forms of research; biological experiments, neuroscience, social engineering, personality modification etc. This is a techno-political agenda for the future that goes a step further than any traditional dictatorships ever has done. It intends to transform us into biological machinery and exploited guinea pigs. 40 years ago, the Swedish state report Choosing Future by Alva Myrdal quoted that people would have small chances of protecting their rights, regarding to the behavior technology. Said quote is from the official state report,SOU 1972:59:
âResearch into brain function and behavior is designed primarily to clarify the nature and extent of the changes that can be achieved with the different methods and thus provide information on new opportunities to alleviate human suffering, and new risks of control and modification of behavior against peoples will.â
Several leading professors have suggested that antisocial trends have been spread through these military brain systems. TheEU-Ethical Council asked what danger the military constituted. In fact, they are the central factor in the game of the human brain. Fredrik Reinfeldt had even before he became Prime Minister, made up his mind to stand for the FOIâs abuse. He did the same 2007, after forming the new government; he reaffirmed his opinion concerning this matter.
I, Eric R Naeslund has written this paper and formed the accuse. Also supported a network including journalists, organizations and brain activists in a joint project to bring the issue to media attention and everybodyÂŽs knowledge.
For the last 40 years and without practically any media attention, there has been an ongoing debate within the state regarding the brain technology. A former Director General of Data Inspection, Stina Wahlstrom, took up the subject in relation to human rights in the annual book 1989-1990. She wrote:âObviously, research must include the same ethical values that are generally the basis of law in our societyâŠIt is necessary to limit the research and this restriction is needed in a democratic society… Peopleâs integrity has been violated which often means, unwittingly or unwillingly being forced to participate in a research project. Legislation for such coercion does not belong in a democratic society.âIt was written 20 years ago, yet it has been developed as far that the 12 members of the European Ethical Council stated: “âŠwhen these implants are within our own brains.”This is a threat intended to include all of us in experimental research and behavioral manipulation.
A Prime Minister who accepts the secret brain project, has also launched a battle against peopleâs fundamental freedom and human rights. In Fredrik Reinfeldtâs state, it is important to repeat terms like âjusticeâ and âthe open societyâ as indoctrinated concepts, to hide the reality of building even higher walls of coercion and censorships, than any previous despot has done. Metaphorical impenetrable barbed wire fences that are â to replace freedom with control – being steadily created in more peopleâs brains, to replace freedom, with control. The Stateâs ravaging has FOI as its spearhead. Several times they declare, not only to accept destruction of humans, but also that certain research is actually based on causing harm, suffering and trauma in people. FOIâs takeover of key components of the Karolinska Institute has facilitated the professors and researchersâ projects. A neuro-professor stated in a speech, they couldnât avoid creating diseases and death amongst those they misused. A scary reality that is not uncommon.
In order to describe the subject from an international perspective, New York Times have had the courage to challenge the U.S. government’s covert brain project. Accusing the Pentagon and the CIA of perpetrating the same systems of persecution as the Defence Departments within the EU, they published three political editorials, 50 articles and demanded better knowledge and a public debate. The first editorial was published in 1967 under the heading Push Button People. They warned of the possibility of enslaving the brain and wrote that it was likely; some nations had plans to suppress its citizens by brain technology. The second came in 1970 under the newly formed term Brain Wave. They indicated that we had to update the word âbrain washingâ to âbrain wavingâ, and assumed that Orwell’s 1984had expired and a new and worse danger was at hand. That every newborn child’s first experience of life would be neuro surgery, to be implanted with a transmitter and for their lifetime get emotions and reasons controlled by the state. The third editorial was published in August 1977 after that the New York Times during the summer published 30 revealing articles on the CIA’s brain projects. Under the heading Control CIA Not Behavior they stated that no one knows how many were injured or killed, and they demanded legal action against those involved and financial compensation for victims.
It’s a bigger nightmare here and now, since the experimental program has developed into a permanent state operation. Senator John Glenn spent his final three years in the Senate (1994-1997) trying to regulate the abuses. In his closing speech in January 1997 he called the question for one of the most important of our time. Here we stand at one of mankind’s crucial crossroads in relation to individual freedom – vs. unlimited state power to reduce man to Governmental components. Who wants to live his life with chips and manipulated perceptions? None of course! The EU Council wrote that they wanted to give people the power against the introduction of systems to reduce freedom and autonomy. This topic, more so than any other issue, is reshaping the future, the human brain and life. It must obviously come up for debate in both parliament and the media. We all have a responsibility to contribute; journalists, social activists and of course those parliamentary members whom are opposed to brain chips, behavior control, human experimentation and undemocratic ideas, must of course make themselves heard too.

Technology a blessing or a curse
To those it may concern
During the past year I have the Vicar of Solna parish regularly talked with Magnus Olsson. His information was amazing and scary and not entirely easy to relate to for me that is not scientifically trained, and technically adept.
His information about ICT implants for monitoring of inaccessible parts of the body.
There are great opportunities but also great dangers.
Many ethical issues have been discussed several years ago at the EU level by The European Group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies under the direction of Professor George HermerĂ©n.
The group’s hope was that these dangers would be discussed in the EU countries.
So, in all cases not in our country, Sweden.
Here are some of the areas highlighted by the group:
- ICT implants can not be removed easily
- ICT implants may influence, evaluate and modify mental function
- ICT implants may be through a network’s capacity is being abused in various ways for all kinds of surveillance and manipulation, such as for children and handicapped persons.
- ICT implants may affect the nervous system and in particular the brain and in the wrong hands lasts a threat to individual autonomy and dignity and autonomy.
Sweden is a world leader in this field and has no laws regarding how technology should be managed and conducted research. This in itself is serious and a threat not only to individuals but can also be a threat to our democracy.
Magnus, the victim of an implant against his will and that the technology for several years has been tested and that this has affected his health and life.
He has found several people with similar experiences. Then I judge Magnus as a credible person and understand that it is technically quite feasible to test so I would
In this way, try to relaunch a public conversation about technology and ethics.
My hope is in the first place that Magnus will be heard and helped, in the alternative that
The debate comes in again and that we have the legislation and regulation on both research and the use of ICT implants in our country and in Europe.

Teknik till vĂ€lsignelse eller fĂ¶rbannelse
Till den som det berĂ¶r
Under det senaste Ă„ret har jag som kyrkoherde i Solna fĂ¶rsamling regelbundet samtalat med Magnus Olsson. Hans uppgifter var hĂ€pnadsvĂ€ckande och skrĂ€mmande och inte helt lĂ€tta att ta till sig fĂ¶r mig som inte Ă€r naturvetenskapligt skolad, eller sĂ€rskilt tekniskt intresserad.
Hans uppgifter handlar om ICT-implantat fĂ¶r Ă¶vervakning av otillgĂ€ngliga delar i kroppen.
HĂ€r finns fantastiska mĂ¶jligheter, men ocksĂ„ stora faror.
MĂ„nga etiska aspekter har diskuterats fĂ¶r flera Ă„r sedan pĂ„ EU-nivĂ„ av The European group on Ethics in Science and New Technologies under ledning av Professor GĂ¶ran HermerĂ©n.
Gruppens Ă¶nskan var att dessa faror skulle diskuteras i EU:s lĂ€nder.
SĂ„ har i alla fall inte skett i vĂ„rt land Sverige.
HĂ€r fĂ¶ljer exempel pĂ„ omrĂ„den som uppmĂ€rksammades av gruppen:
- ICT-inplantat kan inte avlĂ€gsnas lĂ€tt
- ICT-inplantat kan influera, utvĂ€rdera och fĂ¶rĂ€ndra psykiska funktioner
- ICT-inplantat kan genom ett nĂ€tverks kapacitet missbrukas pĂ„ flera sĂ€tt fĂ¶r alla sorter av Ă¶vervakning och manipulation, t ex fĂ¶r barn och handikappade personer.
- ICT-inplantat kan pĂ„verka nervsystemet och i synnerhet hjĂ€rnan och dĂ€rmed i fel hĂ€nder varar ett hot mot individens autonomi och vĂ€rdighet och sjĂ€lvbestĂ€mmande.
Sverige Ă€r vĂ€rldsledande pĂ„ detta omrĂ„de och saknar lagstiftning kring hur tekniken ska hanteras och forskningen bedrivas. Detta Ă€r i sig allvarligt och ett hot inte bara mot enskilda mĂ€nniskor utan kan ocksĂ„ vara ett hot mot vĂ„r demokrati.
Magnus, har blivit utsatt fĂ¶r ett inplantat mot sin vilja och att tekniken under flera Ă„r har testats och att detta har pĂ„verkat hans hĂ€lsa och liv.
Han har hittat flera personer med liknande upplevelser. DĂ„ jag bedĂ¶mer Magnus som en trovĂ€rdig person och har fĂ¶rstĂ„tt att det tekniskt Ă€r fullt mĂ¶jligt att genomfĂ¶ra test sĂ„ vill jag
PĂ„ detta sĂ€tt fĂ¶rsĂ¶ka fĂ„ i gĂ„ng ett offentligt samtal kring tekniken och etiken.
Min fĂ¶rhoppning Ă€r i fĂ¶rsta hand att Magnus ska bli lyssnad pĂ„ och hjĂ€lpt, i andra hand att
Debatten kommer i gĂ„ng och att vi fĂ„r en lagstiftning och reglering kring bĂ„de forskningen och anvĂ€ndningen av ICT-inplantat i vĂ„rt land och i Europa.

Samsung thinks up mind-reading brain implant
Company files patent application for an implantable medical device that can transmit information. Think of it as a secure Wi-Fi router for yor bodey.
Samsung’s brain implant comes with security to fend off zombie surgeons, and hopefully non-zombie hackers, too.
Samsung has applied for a patent on an implantable medical device that can communicate physiological/pathological information with an “external device.”
At last, an app to tell us when we’re stressed, drunk, or asleep (states that typically occur in that order, at least for me).
Samsung envisions much more than just a pacemaker you connect to. The application includes a number of possible scenarios with sci-fi implications such as a brain implant to keep track of brainwaves (but certainly not embed subliminal messages about the superior quality of Samsung devices) and fingertip implants for motion detection.
There’s even mention of using the brain implant to directly control the system. Cutting through the patent-speak, Samsung is talking about an implant system capable of being controlled through thought.
Also fascinating is the apparent acknowledgment of the scary Orwell-meets-The Matrix potential of such a technology with the inclusion of a security engine in the device that could send alerts to the user whenever someone else is attempting to access the system.
So that scary pre-singularity moment could appear sooner than we thought: the day we have to decide if a chip in the head that could tell us about the stroke we’re about to have is worth the risk of a becoming the target of a brain hack. Suddenly, regular doctor’s check-ups aren’t sounding so bad anymore.
