Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind — John Milton, (1608-1674)
While all eyes have been on Ukraine and Russia, Charles Lieber, who I refer to as The NanoTech King, has asked for a new trial. Charlie was initially accused of being a spy for the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), but in the end, the courts found that the former Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department was only guilty on six counts related to tax evasion.
“Professor Lieber is not a spy,” declared his attorneys at Mukasey Frenchman LLP. “He did not work in China or perform any unlawful work in China. He should not have been prosecuted. Harvard, NIH, and the DoD benefit from Professor Lieber’s scientific research.”
Indeed, many agencies including the DoD’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), have profited from Lieber’s inventions.
The China Initiative: A Colossal Blunder?
Attorney Frenchman added that Lieber was a “casualty of [a] flawed initiative” and that “this injustice cannot stand.” The reference was to the “China Initiative,” which the Department of Justice (DOJ) launched in 2018 under Trump to combat what officials described as the Chinese government’s campaign to steal US secrets, technology, and cutting-edge research. It was in June of 2018 that the White House Office of Trade and Manufacturing Policy issued a report titled “How China’s Economic Aggression Threatens the Technologies and Intellectual Property of the United States and the World.”
They discovered that “about 80 percent of all economic espionage prosecutions brought by the DOJ allege conduct that would benefit the Chinese state, and there is at least some nexus to China in around 60 percent of all trade secret theft cases.”
Even FBI Director Christopher Wray stated that “the greatest long-term threat to our nation’s information and intellectual property, and to our economic vitality, is the counterintelligence and economic espionage threat from China.”
Lieber and his counsel are denigrating former President Trump and the initiative’s goals: “This prosecution was borne of a political policy implemented by the prior administration; the ‘China Initiative’… is now universally recognized as a colossal blunder.”
A colossal blunder?
For the record, just this past March, a New Jersey man was convicted for his participation in a conspiracy to fraudulently obtain US visas for Chinese government employees. He was also engaged in recruiting US scientists, academics, engineers, and other experts to work in China.

Lieber, who was indeed working with China, was involved in the Thousand Talent Plan, a program launched in 2008 that incentivizes individuals engaged in research and development in the United States to transmit the knowledge and research they gain here to China in exchange for salaries, research funding, lab space, and other incentives. China then uses the American research and expertise it unfairly obtains for its own economic and military gain.
Lieber’s attorneys contend he was targeted and arrested as a result of that “headline-hungry policy” despite a complete absence of proof of economic or intellectual-property espionage or grant fraud towards Lieber.
“Instead, the misguided initiative targeted academic researchers, like Professor Lieber, for failing to disclose their lawful communications with talent programs in China or their legitimate collaboration with academic institutions in China,” added his attorneys.
The NanoTech King was supposed to be sentenced in March 2022, but his attorney pushed the court date and requested a new hearing date of March 31, 2022, to “allow counsel sufficient time for thorough preparation, in light of previously scheduled travel out of the country on March 24, 2022, in connection with family matters.”
Incidentally, this is the second time that 91-year-old Judge Rya W. Zobel has granted Lieber downtime to deal with family matters. The first occurrence allowed Lieber to leave Boston despite the state-wide lockdown that had just been put into place.
Ah, if we could all be so privileged.
Shortly after the submission of Professor Lieber’s “Opening Memorandum of Law,” this year, the Biden DOJ scrapped the entire Trump-China initiative altogether, stating it didn’t embody “the right approach.”
When I looked for a description of the “China Initiative” on the DOJ’s website, it was 404’d. Unbelievable. The government had scrubbed the page a la Ministry of Truth. You can read what it previously stated here.
As of now, Judge Zobel is taking things under advisement. Time will tell if Lieber, who is reported to have “a very advanced form of lymphoma,” gets to walk as a free man.
Brain Implants: From Monkey To Man
Charles Lieber is the mastermind behind 66+ nanotech-related patents, including cyborg heart tissue, and Department of Defense-funded injectable nanoscale wires and/or injectable devices that will be able to connect the body to 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT). It’s also Lieber’s brain implant nanotechnology that paved the way for Elon Musk’s Neuralink/Neurolace.
Last year, in April 2021, Neuralink implanted a chip into the brain of a 9-year-old monkey, Pager, and got him to successfully play the video game Pong by “simply thinking about moving his hands.” The device recorded the monkey’s neuron activity while he interacted with the computer and then fed the data into a “decoder algorithm” to predict Pager’s hand movements in real-time. Eventually, the monkey was able to move the cursor to where he wanted without touching the joystick.
“A monkey is literally playing a video game telepathically using a brain chip!” Musk tweeted excitedly.
The experiment, according to Musk, was a key step in Neuralink’s quest to merge human consciousness with artificial intelligence. Musk, who has just taken a 9.2 percent passive stake in Twitter, has been talking about human trials for two years and continues to do so despite at least 15 Macaque primate deaths on his watch. I call it Musk’s Monkey Massacre.
“…progress will accelerate when we have devices in humans (hard to have nuanced conversations with monkeys),” Musk said. He has even anticipated how to scale, which will involve nonhumans.
“If this is done by neurosurgeons, there’s no way it can scale to a large number of people,” Musk said in an interview. He intends to outsource the delicate labor to artificially intelligent robots. A McKinsey study projects that by 2030, 800 million human jobs will be replaced by robots.
In February 2020, Musk told his fans via Twitter that Neuralink could be experimented “in a human as soon as this year.” Recently, Musk said that Neuralink aims to begin testing brain chips in humans in 2022.
The process is no biggie, according to Musk — simply insert a wireless chip by drilling a small hole in the skull and then insert thin, flexible “threads” of electrodes through brain tissue. Musk states that actual adoption will technically be subject to FDA approvals and other regulatory reviews. Of course. Musk says he’s confident the regulatory agency will approve his Neuralink since standards for implanting the device are higher than what the FDA requires.
Transhumanists will tell you they want to experiment on humans for the sake of repairing diseases with failing neurological functions: “Brain-computer interfaces are being developed to restore movement for people living with paralysis due to injury or disease.”
However, many would argue their true agenda is to figure out how to connect you to the Internet of Things and every other “smart” machine around you. Another goal is to be able to read a person’s mind and enable surveillance under the skin.
Alas, bridging signals between existing neurons is a complicated thing. As Musk puts it, the profound impact of high bandwidth and high precision neural interfaces is underappreciated.
“Replacing faulty/missing neurons with circuits is the right way to think about it,” Musk wrote on Twitter in response to someone asking how a Neuralink device could help restore memory loss or delusion from a stroke.
He stands firm that the Neuralink invention needs to be better than other brain implants. Is it because he has another initiative to meld machine with man? The ultimate goal of transhumanists is to create an inorganic-organic humanoid platform into which human consciousness can be downloaded. After all, the physical body has a limited life span.
In this case, Musk was referring to the “Utah Array,” which according to him, is already in some humans “despite severe drawbacks.” The Utah Array is brought to us by BlackRock, a cabal with more than $10 trillion in assets under management. CEO Larry Fink also happens to sit on the board of the World Economic Forum. The Utah Array chip involves the “human cortex for brain-computer-interfaces.”
“Yeah, it looks like a medieval torture device, but is nonetheless currently used in many human studies! Not hard to be way better,” Musk stated on Twitter in response to the image above.
Brain Chips Of The Transhumanist Kind
Meanwhile, the governments of the Netherlands and the European Union have funded the first pilot study testing the Utah Array. It involves three human subjects to help locked-in patients (patients who are awake and conscious but selectively deafferented, i.e., have no means of producing speech, limb, or facial movements) communicate with a brain implant. The study, slated for completion in June 2022, will gauge whether we can record and decode neural signals obtained directly “from the brain for control over a computer.”
Another company, Synchron, is working in the same space and also has FDA approval. Apparently, two chips implanted against the monkey’s skull send brain signals from the monkey through a 1,024 electrode transmission device, with the signals then decoded and calibrated in order to predict what the monkey wants to do.
Neuroscientists at the University of Pennsylvania affiliated with Nia Therapeutics (Cortera Neurotechnologies) have been implanting “hundreds of human test subjects” with advanced neurological devices based on wirelessly controlled nanotechnology and conducting wide arrays of experiments on them within the DARPA Restoring Active Memory (RAM) project among “other neuroscience-related efforts.”
Finally, I also came across an invasive surgical technique called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) involving the implantation of a neurostimulator in the thalamus. Boston Scientific apparently obtained FDA approval and DBS is now increasingly used as a treatment for essential tremor, Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, and obsessive-compulsive disorder.
You can call these human guinea pigs “Early Adopters.”
But are these experiments consensual and ethical? And are they all FDA approved?
MuckRock, a non-profit collaborative news site, suspects possible unethical or illegal conduct being committed within the scope of UPenn neuroscience-related research projects. Their requests for comment or feedback have garnered no response. (They also list a link titled “Implantable Graphene Nanotechnology Investigational Device Exemption Approval Documents;” however, the page is 404’d and no one from MuckRock has responded to my calls or emails.)
“The high-resolution neurological datasets being gathered via these experiments are being privately distributed to researchers at different institutions, often under the guise of epilepsy or brain-computer interface (BCI) research.”
Following the exposure of Neuralink’s mutilations and cruelty by the nonprofit advocacy group Physicians Committee For Responsible Medicine (PCRM), humans came forward, claiming their brains have been messed with, without their consent. While it’s easy to brush these folks off as “crazy,” is it so hard to believe, knowing about the above-named research efforts? CoronaCon aka the pandemic and its gene therapy jab showed us that under the New World Order, we are considered lab rats.
Not all incidents reported by PCRM or individuals involved Neuralink. Most who have come forward do not necessarily know the entity or company behind their purported brain damage.
“I was the victim of human experimentation without informed consent,” Andy Pearson wrote to PCRM. “These crimes against humanity are being committed by the United States through federal agencies like the NIH, state agencies, and the top universities across the country. I cannot be the only one who is claiming these types of crimes against humanity.”
Mining The Mind: Cognitive Liberty & The NeuroTechnology “Revolution”
“There are no legal protections from having your mind involuntarily read.”
There’s a reason why transhumanists & Luciferian elitists like Yuval Noah Harari and others are telling us that we’re now “hackable animals” and that our days of free will “are over.” A neuro-techno future is underway, and it is reconceptualizing our human rights laws and prompting the need for new ones.
How many are paying attention?
If anything, people have a misguided glee toward the Metaverse during a time when cyber intrusion is at an all-time high. The transhumanists want to trace everything they can and know how you will react, even before you do.
Several multinational companies including Google, Disney, CBS, and Frito-Lay are already using brain imaging for “neuromarketing” to understand consumer behavior and elicit desired responses from customers.
As “neurotechnology improves and becomes commonplace, there is a risk that the technology could be hacked, allowing a third-party to ‘eavesdrop’ on someone’s mind,” writes a 2017 article in Neuroscience News. With advances in neural engineering, brain imaging, and pervasive neurotechnology, the mind might no longer be such an unassailable fortress.
In the future, a brain-computer interface used to control consumer technology could put the user at risk of physical and psychological damage caused by a third-party attack on the technology. We also need to consider ethical and legal concerns over the protection of data generated by these devices.
“The mind is considered to be the last refuge of personal freedom and self-determination, but advances in neural engineering, brain imaging, and neurotechnology put the freedom of the mind at risk,” writes Marcello Ienca, lead author and Ph.D. student at the Institute for Biomedical Ethics at the University of Basel.
The Neuroscience News authors suggest that four new human rights laws could emerge in the near future to protect against exploitation and loss of privacy: “the right to cognitive liberty, the right to mental privacy, the right to mental integrity, and the right to psychological continuity.”
Their proposed laws would give people “the right to refuse coercive and invasive neurotechnology, protect the privacy of data collected by neurotechnology, and protect the physical and psychological aspects of the mind from damage by the misuse of neurotechnology.”
Potential threats that could be prevented by the right to psychological continuity also include new forms of brain-washing. Malicious agents, for example, could use neuromodulation to exert malevolent forms of mind control.
“Science-fiction can teach us a lot about the potential threat of technology. Neurotechnology featured in famous stories has in some cases already become a reality, while others are inching ever closer, or exist as military and commercial prototypes. We need to be prepared to deal with the impact these technologies will have on our personal freedom,” writes Ienca.
