Nobody talks about controlling EMP - you wouldn't really call it EMP if it were controlled - if it were used and directed in minimal, pinpoint amounts, to switch individual transistors on a computer chip on or off.

What about using complicated frequency pattern in maser form, that would be set to simply reflect a second maser beam that actually carried the working frequencies that would lift data right off your hard drive from a distance... no matter the angle that your hard drive was facing with regard to the people who were stealing your data.

A lot of things that we consider as part of the realm of science fiction, are in common use today. Consider that Ayn Rand, Robert Heinlein, and even E. E. (Doc) Smith (the all-time top sci-fi writer regarding electromagnetic and other frequencies) never really considered cellphones that worked through a network of cell towers like we have today.

The point is, if there happened to be a billionaire out there, one who didn't have to worry all the time about keeping his funds coming, in because he actually had the funds "in-hand" so to speak, and if he was a bit of an eccentric in the direction of an electronics/mathematics/radio geek, having some of Tesla's genius, he just might use his abilities and funds to do things way beyond what this article talks about. He might be tapping NSA data just like the NSA is tapping our data. He might be on our side rather than the side of world domination and control.

If you want to see some of the things that are probably being done completely behind the scenes, read the E. E. (Doc) Smith books, "Skylark Three" ( Three-h.html ), or "Skylark of Valeron" ( of Valeron-h.html ). If you are interested in reading the series as a whole, start with "The Skylark of Space" ( Skylark Of Space-h.html ).

Consider that this stuff was being thought about way back in the 1940s and before. What is really being done behind the scenes right now? Perhaps we secretly have some friends of freedom that we don't know about who are limiting the things that U.S. Government and the governments of the world can do!
