A directed-energy weapon (DEW) is a ranged weapon that damages its target with highly focused energy, including laser, microwaves and particle beams. The Active Denial System (ADS) is a vehicle-mounted DEW that fires high-intensity microwaves at a target. It is a microwave gun that produces microwaves just like a microwave oven. If microwaves can cook food, they can also cook a person’s flesh. The ADS is designed as a non-lethal weapon, so it uses a frequency with a short wavelength that doesn’t penetrate deeper than the skin. However, longer wavelengths can penetrate walls and are used by cellphone towers and WiFi routers at a low intensity. WiFi routers produce the same frequency of radio waves as microwave ovens (2.4 GHz).
Some people have turned their microwave ovens into microwave guns. This is done by taking out the magnetron and attaching it to a cantenna.
A microwave gun looks just like an antenna, and it is easy to disguise as regular radio equipment. The military could covertly set up microwave guns in civilian areas as part of a defence strategy.
How can you protect yourself from terrorists equipped with microwave guns? Body fat is non-polar and blocks radio waves. Fat people are microwave-resistant. Eating saturated fat from animals is safe, but drink filtered water that has the chlorine removed. Chlorine (bleach) is linked to atherosclerosis. Avoid trans fat (hydrogenated vegetable oil) from processed and fast food.
There are patents for using radio waves to create audible sound by stimulating the cochlea of the inner ear. This allows a voice to be put in someone’s head. Just like Brave New World, this voice could whisper gently to someone while they sleep and use the power of suggestion to influence their behavior. There are theories about certain technologies that can be used for mind control and methods of preventing it.
