“Today, everything serves war. There is not one discovery which the military does not study with the aim of applying it to warfare, not one invention which they do not attempt to turn to military use.”
—Nikolai Fyodorov, “Philosophy of the Common Cause, 1891”
In a world of rapidly increasing scientific and technological innovation, much of which is conducted under the auspices of corporate and defense contracts, it is reasonable to believe that types of technologies exist which would appear to be science fiction to the average person. But in fact are quite real. Some of these technologies can affect us in ways that could make someone appear mentally disturbed. Is the fact that certain neurological or physiological conditions could be caused by some variety of exotic corporate or military technology not worth determining? Would disclosure of such technology impact the medical field or improve treatment? If such technologies were treated as “real” by the media or academia in general, what changes and protections could arise from that?
