be dismissed a priori.
It is difficult to estimate just how many Americans are being

surveillance. However, the capability of a satellite for multiple-target
monitoring is even harder to estimate than the number of satellites;
may be connected to the number of transponders on each satellite,
transponder being a key device for both receiving and transmitting
information. A society in the grips of the National Security
necessarily kept in the dark about such things. Obviously,
one satellite can monitor simultaneously 40 or 80 human targets,
the number of possible victims of satellite surveillance would
doubled or quadrupled.
A sampling of the literature provides insight into this fiendish
space-age technology. One satellite firm reports that "one

According to one investigator, there is a way around this
obstacle: "Unlike sensors that passively observe visible-light

surveillance, certainly its most stunning, is mind-reading.
As early as 1981, G. Harry Stine (in his book Confrontation

by means of
deciphering the outputs of electroencephalographs (EEGs).
Early work in
this area was reported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects
(DARPA) in 1978. EEG's are now known to be crude sensors of

pleasure." Though not yet applied to sex, the Neurophone--or
precisely, a Neurophone-like-instrument--has been adapted
for use by
satellites and can alter behavior in the manner of subliminal
"broadcasting," but works on a different principle.
After converting sound into electrical impulses, the Neurophone
transmits radio waves into the skin, where they proceed to
bypassing the ears and the usual cranial auditory nerve and
brain to recognize a neurological pattern as though it were
communication, though often on a subconscious level. A person
with this device "hears" by a very different route.

There are various other satellite powers, such as manipulating
electronic instruments and appliances like alarms, electronic
and clocks, a television, radio, smoke detector and the electrical
system of an automobile. For example, the digital alarm on
a watch, tiny

satellite lasers include the free-electron laser, the x-ray

Along with mind-reading, one of the most bizarre uses of
a satellite is
to physically assault someone. An electronic satellite beam--using
less energy than needed to blast nuclear missiles in flight--

locked onto a
human target, with the victim being unable to evade the menace

actually murder someone this way has not yet been worked out,
