EM field, behind right ear, suspends morality

This new finding, from MIT, should cause scientists to more closely examine the risks to human health posed by mobile phones and other wireless, personal technologies. — M.B.

MIT neuroscientists believe they have isolated the brain region — just behind the right ear — where moral judgements take place.

And they can suspend someone’s ability to judge right from wrong, simply by generating a magnetic field near the same spot where many of us hold our cellular phones and wireless, Bluetooth, headsets.

The researchers’ findings, announced today:

“In both experiments, the researchers found that when the right TPJ (right temporo-parietal junction) was disrupted, subjects were more likely to judge failed attempts to harm as morally permissible.”

The technique used by the MIT scientists, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), has been described as one that creates “virtual lesions” on the brain.

And although TMS’s long term effects on health are not well understood (similar amounts of electromagnetic radiation have been linked to increased cancer risk), the treatment is becoming increasingly popular for everything from tinnitus to depression.

The US military also hopes to use TMS to keep soldiers fighting, without the need to stop for sleep.

via Moral judgments can be altered.

"Surely that title is a typo"

...I shall read the article to clarify...
...oh, no. Oh..!

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

I hope more people

get to see this.

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

of course...

This deserves a lot more attention than it will likely get

We all like to think we are the masters of our thoughts, but we are not. Clinging to that belief and rejecting the truth of our vulnerability doubles our vulnerability.

We are entranced by the world of matter, but it is the world of energy that we are being attacked from and getting our azzez handed to us. Call it hoodoo, voodoo, mumbo, jumbo if you like because I do not have the scientific equipment to prove it, but I know with every fiber of my being that TRUTH generates the curative energy field.

Truth exists, and it deserves to be cherished.

Thanks P4dub

Me likey.

Wow, great find

very disturbing though. It looks like science is becoming the weapon of evil. Sheesh!
