(NaturalNews) Drug researchers are working on a mind-altering chemical that could erase your memories. It's all being pursued under the umbrella of "mental health" with claims that this could help victims of emotional trauma. The idea that you can "heal" a patient by chemically lobotomizing them is, of course, entirely consistent with the core mythology of modern medicine: If something's wrong, you should poison it, burn it, irradiate it or cut it out... and then pronounce the patient "healed!"
In the case of memory-erasing drugs, scientists are reportedly working on a drug that would remove certain proteins from the brain's "fear center." This is based on the ludicrous idea, by the way, that memories are recorded solely by physical proteins in the brain -- an idea that's obviously based on an entirely outmoded mechanistic model of the human mind and brain.
Then again, modern medical science seems to be hopelessly stuck in the Dark Ages, believing that there must be a chemical cure for everything. Hence the ongoing waste of billions of dollars searching for a cancer cure as if it were some sort of acquired infection.
"Erasing a memory and then everything bad built on that is an amazing idea, and I can see all sorts of potential," said Kate Farinholt, executive director of the mental health support and information group NAMI Maryland, in a Baltimore Sun story (http://www.baltimoresun.com/health/...). But even she can see this approach could be fraught with danger: "Completely deleting a memory, assuming it's one memory, is a little scary. How do you remove a memory without removing a whole part of someone's life, and is it best to do that, considering that people grow and learn from their experiences?"
Torturing mammals in the name of "science"In order to pursue this work on a memory-erasing drug, researchers used electroshocks on mice (which are mammals, of course) to "train" them to fear an audible tone. They noticed this electroshock torture resulted in the build-up of proteins in the brain's fear center (amygdala), so now they've leaped to the wild conclusion that proteins = memories and therefore the way to treat fearful memories is to chemically remove the proteins.
This is such sloppy quack science that I can't believe it even got published by a scientific magazine. It's the same sloppy thinking that caused medical doctors to leap to the erroneous conclusion that cholesterol is bad for you. That's one medical myth that has made Big Pharma hundreds of billions of dollars in cholesterol-lowering drugs that harm far more people than they help.

Western scientists, ever stuck in the world of the physical, are easily misled into thinking that mental processes are solely based on proteins and chemicals rather than the far more profound neural network phenomena that really drive the functioning of the mind. Memories are not merely logged in the brain with proteins. If they were, our skulls would be as large as houses, filled with proteins from all the memories of our lives. In reality, memories are holographically recorded throughout the neural network of our brain which also interfaces with the non-physical human mind -- an entity of consciousness that extends beyond the physical realm (and which virtually the entire conventional scientific community has so far failed to acknowledge because they ridiculously believe that they, themselves, are biological automatons who lack consciousness).
More drugs for soldiersRight now, U.S. soldiers are being drugged out of their minds with amphetamines and antidepressants. PTSD is the latest financial windfall for Big Pharma because more trauma means more profits from prescribing more drugs.
Just imagine how these "memory erasing drugs" might be used if they existed. First, they send you off to war, and if you somehow manage to survive that, they erase your memories when you come back home so you can't talk to the press about what really happened.
It's the perfect crime for a police state society: Destroy peoples' memories with the excuse of calling it "mental health treatment."
These drugs could be used on political prisoners, of course. Got someone speaking out against the government? Just arrest them, diagnose them with some mental disorder such as Oppositional Defiance Disorder, then force-feed them drugs that erase their memories.
A few months later, release them back into the world as mind-numbed zombies, where they are sure to go along with the rest of the crowd that's already lining up for vaccines, TSA pat-downs and mind-altering pharmaceuticals.
A memory-erasing drug is the ultimate Big Brother weapon because it could be used to destroy the personality of free-thinking individuals without blatantly killing them in the process.
No wonder pharma researchers are already working on this drug. It could be a powerful weapon in the corporate war on the people of our world -- a war that's already being waged against peoples' bodies and could soon extend to their very memories.
