Law Enforcement Complicity in Electronic Torture & Mind Control in America
(editor’s note: This is the first part of a six part essay by Nicholas Kirkland which overviews the means and methods employed by governments and some powerful organizations, to psychotronically harass and torture innocent people; and the complicity of law enforcement in that endeavor. This essay is one of the more thorough and cogent explanations that I’ve read to date that reveiws all aspects of psychotronic assault and its impact upon the victim. There is an urgent need for science professionals of decency and morality to step up to the plate and not only assist victims of psychotronic torture to unmask this activity, but to help discover countermeasures to thwart and countervene these assaults. There is no greater “crime against humanity” than psychotronic torture and harassment. It must be stopped and its perpetrators brought to justice. – Ken Adachi, Educate-Yourself.org)
In recent years, scientists have learned how to locate by remote, focus on, and lock into a person’s brain to manipulate that person’s thoughts and thus his actions. Mind control assaults now loom as one of the main challenges of the 21st century. The targeted person often never discovers that he has become a mind control victim, and he ends up hurting others, taking his own life, or simply becoming another “Alzheimer” statistic. This paper discusses some of the elements of what I call Electronic Stalking and Mind Control (ESMC).
While writing this paper, the people who monitor me electronically and continually interfere with my computer and emails and tap my phones, often entered my PC to make changes in the narrative to discourage me and try to make me look crazy. Keeping the paper intact and ensuring accuracy has been a constant battle. Even now, after finishing the paper, when I go back to add a salient point, I often find that a portion has been altered or deleted. Powerful forces do not want papers such as this one written and disseminated.
Fortunately, the internet brings together targeted individuals (TIs) of electronic torture and mind control from all conceivable backgrounds. Race and ethnicity, color, gender, religion, politics, philosophical views, and all other human characteristics and thought, fade and become one as targets suffer from the same evil. This paper is written principally for those victims.
Some readers may find this paper objectionable when I talk about who initiated my ESMC and who probably continues to manage it by proxy. Nevertheless, I hope that the reader can get past those objections and read the entire content. Targeted individuals (TIs) will readily identify with what I talk about in this paper. Those who are not TIs, but who are intellectually curious about electronic and mind control assault, will learn much about a sick attack upon tens of thousands of targets that also indirectly affects everybody in lives of those targeted individuals.
The human resources and the enormous cost required to carry out electronic stalking and mind control, re-enforced in many cases by gang stalking, almost certainly limit its use to governments. Only governments can mobilize the enormous outlay of funds and successfully camouflage the use of those funds. Only governments have the sophisticated equipment and computers required for electronic abuse and mind control. Only governments can train in secrecy the cadre of handlers who administer the electronic assault and mind control activities, using deception and psychology. Even mega corporations and businesses would not be able to carry out electronic assault and mind control in secrecy unless they did so under cover of government work and with government protection. Several countries, including the United States of America, have experimented with directed energy weaponry and mind control for many years.
I was first targeted for surveillance by the Israelis in a South American country no later than 1978. Let me back up to explain. I was working for the U.S. Government in South America when the 1973 Arab-Israeli War broke out. An historian by academic training, I started looking into the causes of the war and realized that Israel was not the poor beleaguered nation that U.S. media portrayed but instead pursued internal and foreign policies that caused most of the Middle East problems. Shortly after my “enlightenment,” pro-Israeli Americans with whom I worked started testing my views. Their attempts to intimidate me had the opposite affect. Instead of remaining quiet, I became more vocal in expressing my beliefs.
Only recently have I remembered an incident in that country that may have portended the current electronic torture and mind control. In about 1976 or 1977, for several evenings while in my bedroom before retiring I was struck suddenly with a sense of overwhelming gloom that tended toward panic. It dissipated during the night, and the following day I felt normal. In retrospect, I believe that either my mind may have already been “hooked” and unknown persons manipulating my mind or I was being targeted by some remote-operated electromagnetic force. (More on that later.)
Five years later I was assigned to a different South American country. One of the national employees who worked in my section was a Jewish woman who had worked with the Israeli Consulate before that office closed, and then she began working with the U.S. representation in that country. One day when I had a problem with a molar, I asked that person to recommend a dentist. She referred me to a German Jewish “dentist,” who supposedly did a root canal on that tooth. After retirement, in the 1990’s, I went to an American dentist with problems with the same molar on which the South American dentist had supposedly performed the root canal. The local dentist found in the tooth a tiny cylindrical pin-like object. At the time, I thought little of it. However, now in retrospect, that little object had to be a tiny “bug.” The South American dentist also wanted to place a filling in-between my two front teeth, claiming that there was decay between the teeth. He obviously intended to implant an incredibly tiny camera in that location. Thirty years later those two teeth remain perfectly sound.
I liked the employee who recommended the dentist, and at the time I had no reason at all to doubt that she was just a nice, friendly national employee who happened to be Jewish and who happened to find work with the U.S. Government. When other employees reported to me that she got to the office early in the morning to go through the papers in my desk, I dismissed those charges as simply tales manufactured out of jealousy. After I left the country for another assignment, that employee lost her job. Although I had given her excellent performance evaluations, she told others that I caused her to be fired. In actuality, I did not find out that she had been dismissed until much later. In hind sight, I believe that her guilt convinced her that I had found out about her duplicity. Apparently that employee did not stop working with the Israelis when she took the job with the U.S. Government.
In the 1970’s, Israeli Nazi hunters were still active in South America. The “dentist” probably worked with them, and the employee in my office may have also cooperated in the hunt. One of the contractors who worked with the American Government and who alternated between Argentina and the country in which I was assigned was known to be associated with that group. The U.S. Government, in fact, cooperated with and probably even funded the Nazi hunters. The “Nazis” probably included anybody who opposed Israel and its pro-Israel factions.
The minuscule device implanted by the dentist in South America in the late 1970’s may have had only limited capability. It was undoubtedly used to listen to my conversations as well as perhaps to track my movements. Since that time, however, much more sophisticated, high-tech, intelligence-gathering and mind control equipment and software have been developed, tried, and put into operation.
Over the years, I continued to speak out against Israel’s foreign policy and our support for it. In the 1970’s, I defended the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) when it was still considered a renegade group, and in 1984 I became a member of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee at a time when Americans were being led by the U.S. media down the anti-Moslem path. I never occupied an important decision-making position in the government; yet, to the Israelis, an enemy is an enemy, regardless of his rank. I articulate my thoughts, and my friends respect my opinions. Thus, I am a threat.
In 1985, I was reassigned to an African post. Several years later, on the eve of the Gulf War, when it looked like President George Bush (the elder) was going to attack Saddam Hussein, I objected to that action. Taking advantage of a process known as the “dissent channel,” in which American government employees abroad may express opposition to U.S. foreign policy, I sent several cables to the Secretary of State stating my opposition to the war and pointedly charging that the principal reason for the U.S. attacking Hussein was not to assist Kuwait but to fight a proxy war for Israel to maintain Israeli hegemony in the Middle East. However, the media had already pumped up the American public to support the so-called Gulf War. I was among only a handful of thoughtful Americans who opposed that war, and I am quite sure that my opposition became duly noted by U.S. pro-Israel factions as well as the Israelis.
My cables criticizing both the U.S. and Israel for their Middle East policies may have triggered much more advanced electronic surveillance. My hind-sight observations tell me that probably in the early 1990’s pro-Israel elements within the FBI took over my surveillance from the original perpetrators when I retired and returned to the United States, probably on the pretended grounds that I was a subversive and a suspected terrorist. Their mind control assault on me probably began in the early-1990’s and increased in intensity over the last ten to fifteen years.
When I retired in 1991, I continued to speak out against Israel in conversations with friends and in letters to editors of newspapers. I knew that elements in U.S. intelligence loyal to Israel had placed me on their “watch” list and that they were following my activities. After retiring, I continued to travel abroad occasionally, usually to Central America, where I owned property. Once when I returned to the Houston international airport from one of the trips, a rookie immigration official processed my entry. A veteran officer stood nearby. When the rookie scanned my passport and viewed his monitor, he looked perplexed. He turned to the older officer and pointed to something on his monitor that he obviously did not understand. The veteran officer took a quick look and said, “ADOD” (Advise Department of Defense).
My computer has been hacked and my phone tapped for years. A recent accidental discovery strongly suggests that the hackers and phone tappers are Federal agents or foreign agents working with the permission of U.S. intelligence. Here is what happened. One day I entered my email Sent File to copy a paragraph that I had written to a correspondent about the tiny device having been implanted in a molar while living in South America in 1978. I cut and pasted that paragraph and re-sent it. Because my computer is monitored and my emails sometimes deleted or changed, I went back to the Sent box to see if the message had actually gone out. When I opened the sent message, I was astonished to see three words encased in blue-lined rectangular boxes: “ISRAEL”, “MIDDLE EAST”, and “SOUTH AMERICA”.
As a former government employee, let me explain why those three areas were highlighted. Intelligence organizations in every country divide their offices into geographical areas, including Israel, Middle East, and South America. Copies of my email went to those three offices in some intelligence agency in some country. Every U.S. law intelligence agency, including the Department of State and other agencies, has personnel sections that deal with regional affairs. Whoever monitors my email spotted my references to Israel, the Middle East, and South America and marked that email for copies to be sent to those regional affairs offices. I suspect that copies not only went to U.S. intelligence agencies but also to the Mossad.
The secret monitors never imagined that I would go back into a previously sent letter to cut and paste. Finding the highlighted words was a total accident, but a very fortunate one for me, for it told me that somebody monitors my email correspondence and that he is not looking for kiddy porn, drug, and money laundering rings but for material dealing with political views. After passage of the so-called Patriot Act, anybody working with the FBI can justify monitoring a citizen’s email and tapping his phones without getting judicial approval.
Later, to make their flub-up appear to be a computer glitch or a common internet action, the same monitors encircled other words on several other letters; however, when they saw that I had not fallen for that deception, they quit doing it. In view of the fraternal cooperation between the FBI/CIA and the Mossad, the monitor of my emails could be an agent of the latter. What I do not know is the location of the person who monitors my computer, as computers can be hacked from anywhere in the world, including Monroe, Louisiana, where I live, New York City, or Tel Aviv.
Freedom of expression in the United States seemingly comes at a price. Although I have never belonged to the Ku Klux Klan, the Aryan Brotherhood, the Survivalists or any other radical organization, I have openly and consistently condemned Israel. As an American, I thought that I had the right to do so. Apparently I was wrong. One can publicly criticize England, France, Mexico, or any other country in the world – except Israel.
That point is supported by Israeli spokeswoman Tzipora Menache, who was reported in a February 1, 2009 article as saying, “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we (the Israelis) control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House… We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can’t criticize Israel.“ But I do.
Having always considered myself a fervently patriotic citizen, I smolder at being made a surveillance target and now a target of electronic torture and mind control because of my personal and political views, especially my foreign personal and political views. If communication with radical and terrorist groups is the only object of my surveillance, that surveillance would have concluded years ago that I am not a domestic terrorist or a threat to the United States of America. That suggests that I am perceived by either pro-Israel U.S. intelligence or Israeli intelligence as a threat to Israel and thus the reason for my surveillance. The aim of Israel and its pro-Israel American accomplices is to stifle any opposition at all in the United States – and worldwide – to Israel, and American intelligence appears only too ready to lend assistance toward that objective.
This paper is not about Israel; nevertheless, I feel compelled to make several observations about Israel, as Americans will never see anything critical of Israel in the controlled mainline U.S. media:
- Israel often “creates” its enemies to justify its agenda, knowing full well that the United States will back it. Despite the media hype, the facts show that Israel has made no genuine effort to make peace with its neighbors. On the contrary, through its actions it has ensured continued Arab and Moslem hostility.
- Israel purposefully engenders the belief that it is surrounded by hostile forces, as it unites the Western world in its support and opens pocketbooks on its behalf. Indeed, the U.S. provides no-strings budget support for Israel that far exceeds the entire budgets of most developing countries.
- American politicians and the press tout Israel as one of the United States’ staunchest allies; yet, Israel employs spies in the United States. Several spies for Israel have been caught in the last few years and incarcerated only later to be quietly pardoned by the president or otherwise quietly released later by our government to Israel.
- Israel uses its pro-Israel supporters in the United States, not all Jews by any means, to promote its plans for Middle East domination using American resources. We have already fought two proxy wars for Israel and intervened in Somalia, Sudan, Libya, Yemen, Lebanon, and other Middle Eastern and African countries in support of Israel’s foreign policy. In addition, we lost scores of American soldiers when Islamic bombers blew up barracks in two Arab countries (Lebanon and Saudi Arabia) and blew a hole in the U.S.S. Cole near Yemen because of our unswerving support for Israel.
- Israel is one of the biggest exporters of small arms and assault weapons, many of which end up in the hands of gang members on American streets and along the Mexican border.
A very large number of presidential political appointees are ardently pro-Israel, and they even use their diplomatic positions to back Israel’s agenda. The American ambassador in an African country in which I served, who happened to be Jewish, told newly assigned employees point blank in an initial briefing that a part of our duty would be to support Israel. I could hardly believe my ears. His remark was clearly intended for me. Knowing my political views, he may have been baiting me to openly protest his orders and thus give him reason to send me back to the United States.
That Israel views any anti-Zionist views as dangerous and attempts to silence those views is obvious. That pro-Israel organizations in the U.S. perform unlawful acts to advance Israel’s agenda is indisputable. That Israel and its U.S. backers have reason to want me and others silenced is readily evident. They are masters, however, in using misinformation and developing schemes to get others to perform their dirty work while they sit and watch several layers removed from the action.
Although it is now obvious that I had been targeted since the late 1970’s, or perhaps earlier, I did not discover it until December 7, 2005, when my assailants, or handlers, started bombarding me with electrical-like jolts, strong vibrations, and other physical torture. The first vibrations were so strong that I could hardly stand on my feet. I gradually learned that the physical electronic effects, although annoying and painful, were simply used to “soften” or “sensitize” or “pre-condition” me for the real objective – mind control. I later learned that victims are normally targeted for years before they finally realize it. Some targets suffer physical attacks for years and visit doctors frequently without realizing that their symptoms are not natural.
Four days after the electronic attack, the handlers, began “talking” to me subliminally through my brain. Of course, only I could hear their talking. At the time that the ESMC hurled me into reality, I was sixty-eight years old and in exceptional physical and mental health. Although I was initially startled by the “voice-to-brain” communication, I knew full well that I was not schizophrenic. As an historian and former government employee, I understand the value of documentation. Thus, on the very day that the electronic effects first pounded me, I started recording a detailed journal in which I recount my experiences and my thoughts concerning that topic. The journal today comprises six volumes and about a thousand pages of single spaced typescript.
I do not yet know how the perpetrators of the electronic and mind control assault “hooked” my brain by remote. I have had many inoculations, much dental work, and several minor medical procedures performed over the years in various locations. However, as the reader will later see, whatever method was used, it had been employed in my case by the early 1990’s and probably long before, perhaps even dating back to the 1970’s.
Targets and Non-Targets
Shortly after starting my journal, I began researching the topic and communicating with many other victims. Almost invariably those victims, like I, had ignored signs of electronic stalking and did not realize for a very long time that they had been targeted. That is one of the techniques that the stalkers use. The electronic torture and mind control activities are “progressive.” Electronic and mind control stalkers begin very slowly and gradually increase the intensity of the electronic and mind control effects until finally they are too obvious for targets to ignore. Although many of the effects are similar, they do vary from target to target. Many of the targets, for example, do not hear the voices. Nevertheless, they are there.
Through my subsequent research and communications with victims, I learned that stalkers may target any person regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, social and economic status, religion, or age. Most of them are just plain law-abiding citizens who mind their own business. ESMC is not peculiar to only the United States. People in countries all over the world are reporting electronic and neurological assaults. However, this paper deals with only that which occurs in the United States.
Strangely and perhaps suspiciously, some Americans appear exempt from electronic harassment and mind control:
- Congress persons and high ranking U.S. Government officials, including ambassadors. Lower ranking employees and ex-employees of government, however, are often targeted, especially “whistleblowers” and those discontented with the status quo. Postal workers very often become targets, which very well may explain the shooting sprees and rampages of some of those employees.
- High ranking state-level officials.
- The clergy, although members of Fundamentalist Protestant and Roman Catholic churches often become targets. Some of those victims complain that their churches may be involved in their harassment.
- Law enforcement officers. Although I have heard obliquely of police officers being electronically assaulted, I have never actually corresponded with or read a complaint by a law enforcement target. The exclusion also applies to prison authorities, U.S. marshals, Border Patrol, DEA, the entire U.S. intelligence community, including the Secret Service, sheriffs, and sheriff’s deputies.
- CEOs and very successful businesspersons.
- High ranking military officials. Enlisted personnel are often targets; however, I have never seen any material about officer-level personnel having been targeted.
- The medical community.
- The wealthy. I have never read anything about a millionaire having been victimized by ESMC. Most of the targets are middle-class workers, small business owners, retirees, and sometimes financially- and socially-marginal persons.
- Judges and lawyers. The perpetrators know that judges and lawyers possess credibility and also know the laws and would thus be able to leverage law enforcement into action.
- Persons with expertise in radio and electronics, who could perhaps eventually figure out what device is being used and how.
There are two logical and plausible reasons why most of those particular people are not targeted:
- They are a part of the conspiracy, either directly or indirectly, and thus protected.
- The perpetrators know that those targeted groups would possess the intellectual credibility and the power to command investigations of their attacks.
Theories of Methods Used in ESMC
It is indisputable that electronic and mind control assault operates by remote. That means that some object makes contact with the human body over a distance through the air. Thus, whatever method is used must operate along some type of frequency. Almost anything today can be controlled by remote using particular radio frequencies: satellites; rocket ships; less sophisticated free flying machines like military spy drones; garage doors, and indeed almost any other motorized equipment. To allow those frequencies to contact it, the human body must carry in or on it some object, substance, or characteristic that will attract those frequencies. Evidence of that is seen in a target’s being lasered while in the presence of others. In my case, certain voice inflections and tones of narrators on TV also cause jolts in my body; those sounds could only come from electromagnetic waves.
Satellites now possess amazing capabilities, all performed by remote, and they may very well be utilized in electronic assaults and mind control. In a 2001 article called Shocking Menace of Satellite Surveillance, John Fleming wrote about the use of satellites in ESMC assault. Discussing the realities of satellite-driven ESMC, Fleming said: “The victim’s movements will be known, his conversations heard, his thoughts picked clean, and his whole life subjected to bogus moralizing, should his tormentor diabolically use the information gained. A sadist could harass his target with sound bites, or audio messages, directly broadcast into his room; with physical assault with a laser; with subliminal audio messages that disturb his sleep or manipulate persons around him into saying something that emotionally distresses him…” The GPS (Global Positioning Satellite) almost certainly figures somehow in the electronic assault and mind control activities. At any rate, that a victim can be targeted regardless of his location and movement argues that a satellite must be involved.
(war is crime note: For a ‘real life’ example of how it may work, read Terraform Delta, a sci-fi novel by W.C. Vetsch (chapter “Phase III”).)
This paper does not explore in depth the methods used to zero in on a person’s mind. There are many schools of thought on that subject. Here are some of them.
One popular theory states that victims are implanted with microchips. Scores of patents dealing with microchips in the human body have indeed been filed, many of which, in the wrong hands, could be utilized for electronic abuse. I have read of only one person who supposedly located microchips in his body, had them surgically removed, and then had them identified. My efforts to contact that individual failed. In my opinion, his claims have not been authenticated. We know, however, that many forms of microchips have been developed for the human body, most of them capable of being controlled by remote.
Another theory believes that voices can be recorded, transferred to a computer, and the computer then used to lock onto that person’s brain. Experiments show that that can indeed be done. However, for a computer to connect with the brain requires some type of catalyst. One day when the handlers were vibrating me mercilessly, I tensed my throat, and the vibrations stopped. That caused me to remember an incident that occurred when I served in Africa in the 1980’s. One day while working in my office, the secretary from the embassy political section, the office that serves as a front for our CIA agents, called me to ask some question that anyone could have answered. I hardly knew the caller; thus, I instantly realized that the real purpose of her call was to record my voice. However, I believed that it was probably for security purposes in case of kidnap or being held hostage at some point. That our intelligence community was recording voices in the 1980’s makes me believe that there may be some validity to the theory that perpetrators of ESMC may be able to “hook” our brains by zeroing in on our voices. Voices give off distinct vibrations that are as peculiar to a person as his fingerprints and DNA.
Concerning DNA, some evidence also suggests that targets’ minds can be “hooked” if the handlers know the targets’ DNA. If that is true, targets would not necessarily have to have a microchip or other object or substance in his body to be hooked. There may be some remote device that with the aid of the GPS will locate a person and “hook” him using his DNA. If DNA can be utilized, society is in deep trouble, for obtaining DNA samples of people is a very simple matter. Even touching a glass or a can will leave useable traces of DNA.
Still another theory talks about small devices (nano-microchips) made so small that they can fit between molecules of water and other liquids and be injected into the body in shots and inoculations. Patents taken out by scientists describe that very procedure. Other theories include wiring in the ear that connects with the brain, pins that penetrate the skull, and some type of substance ingested into the body through normal food and drink.
There is also evidence that even human breath or breathing somehow figures in electronic torture and mind control. Yet, we do not know whether it has any connection with “hooking” a target’s brain. I tend to believe that the breath, or perhaps the movement caused by breathing, enables or aids the handlers’ device, for I much later found out that when I hold my breath for a few seconds, the vibrations temporarily cease.
In addition, MRI (Magnetic Resonant Imaging) machines have been successfully combined with computers and used by remote along radio frequencies to move digits and limbs, detect emotions, and “detect lying, racism, and even identify which image a person is looking at, suggesting [that] one could visualize scenes from a person’s dreams or memory” (Hospital Soup.com, June 10, 2008). The uses of a device such as that are endless if used on the brain’s wave lengths or frequencies.
Similarly, neurotransmitters can be used by remote to communicate with brain cells through electrical impulses. That device can tap into the brain’s functions that cause body movement, thought, feelings (emotions), and communication. It could probably also influence the thalamus, or the inner part of the brain, which regulates body temperature and controls urges such as eating, sleeping, and sexual behavior.
Laser guns may play a role in ESMC. A CNN news program on February 23, 2009, told that 148 incidents of lasers aimed at airplanes had been reported since the beginning of the year. In the last incident, the laser was green in color and about the size of a pencil. If a laser beam can be focused to such a fine point over several miles of distance, imagine what it could do when trained on an individual or an object over a period of time.
Mounting evidence suggests that a substance or an object can also be introduced sexually into a target’s body to “hook” his or her brain. Several of my correspondents mention that their ESMC began after having had an intimate relationship with somebody. Those relationships may have been set-ups. Spies and undercover agents often use sex to entrap individuals. Some such object or substance could possibly be introduced into targets vaginally, orally, or anally through sexual contact.
All that said, pick a theory. In truth, we do not yet actually know how high-tech assailants capture a victim’s mind; neither do we know what instruments are used in the process. Both are highly guarded secrets shrouded in deception. In fact, there may be several methods of “hooking” the target.
Once the brain is “hooked,” it is controlled by remote using a device connected to a computer. That computer has an amazing range of capabilities. We shall later see some of those capabilities and the effects they have on the human body and mind. Whatever the device and method that may be for “hooking” the brains of the targets, I suspect that when we discover the truth – and we will – the system will probably turn out to be far less sophisticated that we imagined, perhaps a laser gun used with the GPS along a certain frequency or something similar.
Whatever the device may turn out to be, most of the symptoms in my case occur on the head, which leads me to believe that if there is an object in my body, it is probably located in that region. Here are some of the effects on my head: tinnitus (ringing in the ears); tops of ears oozing a colorless fluid; sensation of bubbles popping in mouth; salivating from the mouth at any time; pin pricks on the eyes and a loss of vision; the top of the nose coating over with a thick crust; tingling on the skin (as a result a brown spot has appeared on the right outside nostril and a sore-type depression, on the right side of my chin); clicking on my head and in my left ear; frequent, long-lasting, pin-like prick on the back of my neck; the sensation of flies crawling on my face; a psoriasis-like area on my cheek near the left eye; a very sharp sensation on or in several teeth (as if a dentist drill had hit a nerve); a heavy pounding, throbbing in the back of my head; an unnaturally intense itching in the corners of my eyes and on my eyelids; pin-like pricks in the depths of my ears that cause me to shudder violently; air that pushes my lips out as if I were snoring through my mouth; scratching of the throat, which causes either sneezing or coughing; a tingling inside my nostril that induces sneezing; blockage in my esophagus that makes it difficult to swallow; constant itching inside my nostrils that makes you want to “pick your nose;” and of course the voices that occur in my brain or ears. (More about symptoms later.)
