I have stated that there is nothing that can hide in the mind control surveillance system, because these operators are using the state of art remote watching technology. Now, I found more information to prove what I have stated is correct. I would show readers such kind of information below:

No Where to Hide
If you want to see the future of surveillance, take a trip into the world of millimetre waves and the video cameras that are sensitive to them. People are stripped of their clothes and become featureless, luminous humanoids. Silhouetted against their bodies and suspended as if by magic, hang coins, buckles, pens and keys. Cars are dark and sinister, although their hot radiator grills are bright. Only the steel in reinforced concrete shows up, so buildings look more like cages of copper pipes and electricity cables than homes and offices. There is little privacy in the world revealed by the millimetre-wave camera. Sitting rooms, bedrooms, bathrooms and lavatories all merge into one open space. People sit in their cages watching warm boxes, others sleep while suspended a few centimetres above the floor.
The images make an apt metaphor for the brave new digital world of electronic surveillance. It is a world where there will be nowhere to hide, nor anywhere to hide anything. There are already devices under development that will see through walls and strip-search suspects from a distance, looking under their clothes and inside their bodies. Individuals may be identified by their unique smells and tracked down, or “recognised” electronically, even before they have had time to complete a crime. And thanks to cheap digital video cameras and powerful new search algorithms, individuals will be tracked by computers. There will be no anonymity even in the once welcoming crowds. Millimetre waves sit in the electromagnetic spectrum between the infrared and microwaves. They are emitted by anything that contains water, especially if it is warm. The human body is an excellent source, and it stands out like a beacon at these frequencies.
“Millimetre waves are incredibly useful,” says Steve Bohrer, an electrical engineer at Millitech, a company in Massachusetts that has spent 10 years developing cameras that can spot them. They pass straight through any nonconducting material-this includes almost all clothing and most types of building material, he says. Metals are poor emitters, while dielectric materials such as plastics, ceramics, plastic explosives and powdered drugs lie somewhere in between. The amount of millimetre wave radiation that any of these materials emits also depends on their temperature.
Like visible and infrared light, millimetre waves can be focused to form an image. “It’s not difficult. All you need is a plastic lens,” explains Bohrer. What is more difficult is detecting this image once it has been formed.
In a conventional video camera, light is turned into an electrical signal by sensors known as charge coupled devices (CCDs). An array of CCDs at the camera’s focal plane generates the electronic signal that creates a picture on a monitor. The more sensors in the array, the finer the camera’s resolution, so an important factor is the size of each CCD and hence the number that can be crammed into the array. Most home video cameras have thousands. But CCDs cannot be used to pick up millimetre waves. Instead radio antennas are needed detect the radiation, and the tiny currents induced in the antennas must be amplified into a clear electronic signal. Such devices tend to be relatively bulky.
The trick that Millitech has pulled off is to develop a way of making antennas only two or three millimetres across and then assembling 256 of them into a two- dimensional array. At a distance of a metre or so the camera can resolve objects a few millimetres across. Like a conventional video camera, the array takes 30 pictures per second. The result is a real-time, moving image of the world in millimetre waves.
Millitech’s two prototype cameras can easily spot concealed metal knives and guns against the bright background of the bearer’s body if the temperature of an object is known, it is also possible to identify the material it is made from, by assessing the brightness of the image. Since most concealed objects and packages are kept close to the body, their temperature can be estimated fairly accurately losing this technique, crystalline substances such as sugar or powdered drugs can be identified clearly, although it is not possible to distinguish between the two.
By 1997, Millitech expects to have a millimetre-wave camera on sale for around $10 000, and a rugged portable version for $80 000.
To complement its camera, Millitech is developing computer software that will scan images produced by the camera and alert a human operator if it spots something suspicious. Fooling the computer will not be easy. “I suppose you could hide a gun inside a hot water bottle filled with water at body temperature.” suggests Bohrer. “But the system would still pick up the rubber bottle.” The only way to beat it will be to hide objects inside the body. The Millitech camera could be a voyeur’s delight. At close range, males and females can be easily distinguished, says Bohrer. The intensity of the millimetre waves that human flesh emits depends on its temperature. A man’s genitals are slightly cooler than the rest of the body so they appear darker. Bohrer says that the computerized scanning system will safeguard people’s privacy by doing away with the need for routine human surveillance.
