The US Army is Funding Research That Will Allow Soldiers to Communicate Telekinetically

The US Army spends billions every year maintaining their reputation, and this year is no different. Action has been taken to fund research in neuroscience to eventually find a way for soldiers to communicate telekinetically!

It seems every year that the US pours more money into outlandish weaponry, and this year is not any different! The US Army has put millions into neuroscience research to understand brain signal patterns.

So, you’ve probably read this title and thought this article was a prank. Well, I’m here to inform you that what you’re reading, is the truth. The US Army, seemingly one of the most powerful armies in the world, has put money towards neuroscience research.

This doesn’t seem completely odd off the cuff. However, the US Army has officially stated that they are hoping to understand different brain signals, with the intention of using this information to allow silent communication via thoughts.

Ultimately, we’re discussing a future where soldiers, “could silently talk via a computer in the field”, as discussed by Hamid Krim, a program manager for the Army Research Office.

The US Army Research Office has officially put $6.25 million dollars (USD) into funding for this project. Although pennies for the United States, the project has several high profile universities. To name a few in the US, this prestigious list includes researchers at USC, UCLA, and UC Berkeley. There are also several UK Universities involved, such as Oxford, Essex, and Imperial College.

Let’s Get Down to Business

So, where does one start in researching how to differentiate and separate brain signals? According to C4RISNET, researchers started by monitoring “…the brain signals from a monkey reaching for a ball over and over again”. This helped them recognise and separate brain signals successfully.

Afterwards, researchers decided a new goal: they want to identify brain signals outside of motion signals.

Ultimately, Krim states “[this] is the original intent mainly: to have the computer actually being in a full duplex communication mode with the brain.”

It is almost overwhelming to think of the possibilities mechanical telekinesis can have for the future. But, I guess this is one of those things that we’ll have to wait and see!
