Brain Brainwashing with Nano Computers.
Brainwashing subjects of studies of the human race this is done searing memory processing areas in the hypothalamus, these dying cells stop producing the electrochemical reactions that cause the individual remember to treat the evidence no sen these agencies noted or visible downloaders in nano voltaic cell bodies imitating duplication process and growth of nerve cells, the time when performing these types of duplication are nano seconds, while trying to remember the individual any event, with nano computers, disconnections occur between different areas of the brain and hypothalamus, treating the subject performing the processes of hearing, speech, sensation, vision, perception does not remember what happens or happened in time which is in courts.
Example 1: When disconnecting the processing centers of vision and connections of nerve cells in the hypothalamus, cauterization or voltaic nano downloads with varying voltages depending on how computers produce nano nano downloads voltaic cells in the optic nerves and different connections between centers, cells, the person could fail to perceive images, synapses that are not performed because the exchange mechanism is disrupted chemical transmitters which let no electrochemical reactions and stimuli from the retina and optic nerves can be sent to different areas in the brain, remembering that even when these areas are not normally would process visual stimuli, process information such as the psyche and the brain to bring information to the sceptres makes recognize the individual images in the hypothalamus and visual processing centers in areas that are explained in the neurology literature.
Various studies have shown that the processing centers atmosphere activities take information but generally the brain processes the information to then be understood.
Example 2: to communicate with the people around us, the hypothalamus and various brain regions electrochemical reactions to produce speech, some agencies treat this process is not carried out, among the techniques they use, find, burns to the processing center stimulus that occurs in the process of speaking, suppose you are going to say the words "I are burning the brain" and a security intelligence agency need not hear or speak these conversations, in fractions of nano second satellites and computers (mainframes), nano computers to transmit signals to explode, searing or irradiating the cells causing them to die.
The areas where discharges occur nano voltaic and make people talk, the conversation product and sensations nervous system is stimulated, then the subject speaks the words, this happens at the speed of light, to say the words (I - are-burned - on ....), the agency cauterized brain areas and hypothalamus, causing a word than such as nerve cells that produce this type of electrochemical downloads do not exist.
Sometime could cauterize any area where electrochemical reactions occur voltaic and nano downloads of specific words, large numbers of dying cells in different areas so the word that the subject thinks or says not to try to talk it produces different interruptions in which other cells or other areas of the brain trying to send downloads voltaic nano as a mechanism for the individual to speak. It also happens that these agencies produce electrochemical discharges and lullabies voltaic cells to grow so that the subject can do the activities that comprise the complexities of communication, vision and hearing.
Example 3: to produce genetic damage and treat the individual does

Youtube and grassroots ‘political’ parody
By Claudio Pires Franco
In his book Convergence Culture, Henry Jenkins defends that the Internet, and especially YouTube, have been used by ‘normal’ individuals to engage in debates around political issues.
This has most often been done in the form of parody, mostly of politicians, but also of civic/political issues. Jenkins thinks that humour plays an important role in engaging ‘normal’ citizens in civic/political debates.
Most people feel distant and alienated from formal politics with politicans adopting formal postures and rhetoric discourses that are far from grassroot level daily lives and conversations – maybe linked to social diffeentiation tactics described by Bourdieu?.
The Internet has allowed consumers and audiences to become producers, mixers and distributors. We use it mostly for fun / entertainment but are using some skills to touch issues in the political arena. And the way we’re doing it is especially through humour, what Jenkins terms ’serious fun’. See this ‘parody video’ posted on YouTube, the Snowman video, about climate change.
Politicans and mass-media broadcasters have often dismissed examples like this as ‘not serious enough’ for politics, but these videos have been watched by millions of people, have raised debate, have triggered chain reactions and further thought and debate about the serious issues they cover.
The Internet is just a medium, but one that opens production and distribution to people with access to it. In ways closer to ‘popular culture’ than politics, it seems that the way political debates / pressure are happening are tending more towards taking popular views into consideration, but only when there are enough numbers of people watching a video or Twittering about CNN’s low coverage of the Iranian elections.
So, is the Internet the answer to political disengagement? Not on its own, but with a dose of fun and humour, maybe more young people who are not engaged in other ways may find it worth having a go at touching civic / political issues – and at least have a laugh while doing it.
