    Interesting thought concerning psychological warfare.

    I know they use heavy metal type music to intimidate... why not use laser light "shows" in conjunction with that to cause utter panic.

    In an already heightened sense of fear the opposition might actually be terrorized.


    The light shows could play on the unconscious.... symbols perhaps or simple images focused on their religious ideals; perhaps even one that unconsciously makes them feel inferior sexually.... = )

    i think that they don't use heavy metal to intimidaye, but to keep guerillas awake. if they can't find the guerillas, they'll make them sleep deprived until they make a stupid move and expose themselves

    but we don't know all that happens in military interagations so they might do something like that already not that a light show of one image would be boring after awhile or an image that would distreses them would also work

    Why not use the laser light show for the same purpose as the heavy metal music?

    Oh yeah and I forgot to mention, use satellites at different angles so that their is a cross section of the lasers... i assume that if you cross two lasers you get a point which is intensified, anyways it would be really interesting to display these images in the sky and freak the hell out of the bad guys. They wouldn't understand the reality of it mostly.

    or beam flashes of light that have contrasted images in it, but the flashes are so fast and at irregular intervals that they can not really see the image; the unconscious interprets it. Ya know. Of course finding the the right algorithm is important too.

    So, you're thinking kind of like the subliminal message advertising that used to be implanted in some early movies? Just because it's illegal to advertise products that way doesn't mean it's illegal to use it in war.

    We could create an innocuous looking light show that looks like just a bunch of pretty shapes floating around, but every so often you flash a specific image that's totally out of place with all of the others, but only one frame, and so fast that the conscious mind doesn't register it?

    Basically we could subliminally advertise the notion of "surrender", and all of a sudden the bad guys just have an unexplainable urge to put away their guns. Or... better yet... convince them to want to start smoking, then leave them some cigarettes. Let them know there's a place they can go to get more, if they ever run out.

    Well at least you challenged me........ no of course not, it is merely to throw the dynamics of their abilities off.... COME ON DUDE it is about having the upper hand right, so... throw their concentrations off... make it so that when they attack they are less likely to be accurate with their aiming... etc. Sort of like throwing of the probabilities of their atomic systems. = )

    And also a reset button in existence would be nice, well there is no button... so I guess you have to recreate that big bang theory they talk about... = ) Oh how of course, well it may not be exceptionally hard all you have to do is recreate the entire force exerted on a point in space, and that force is probably an exponential number in relation to ??? the force of my theories concerning the expansion of our universe... which surprisingly is not all together related to a certain dimensionally relative vacuum in space. More or less the dimensions of energy itself. Well, oh and also the force that is required probably has to be accurate, so gauging our relative energy state as a universe in relation to the actual structure of existence... well that may be tricky.

    I do not think the aliens will like us that much

    During the Waco hostage incident, bright lights, in conjunction with loud music were used to irritate and wear down those inside the compound. This is one instance where light can be utilized in psychological warfare. A laser light show however, confuses me. Why are lasers scary, particularly when their express purpose is to intimidate? I can't imagine a military convoy rolling down the street at night with a laser disco ball on the roof. It's a bit silly.

    Please explain this. I'm not all that bright, but I don't see how this relates to the current topic. Frankly, it's nonsensical.

    Wow. I didn't initially believe you, so I looked it up, and it turned out you were totally right. No advantage to be gained there. I'm going to go ahead and post the link in case anybody else wants a reference.

    Laser in sky a research project

    That intense green light shooting into space from the University of B.C. on clear nights isn't a signal to aliens to land at Wreck Beach or some malevolent party intent on blinding the cockpit crew of a jumbo jet using Vancouver International Airport.

    BY THE VANCOUVER SUNAPRIL 17, 2008


    That intense green light shooting into space from the University of B.C. on clear nights isn't a signal to aliens to land at Wreck Beach or some malevolent party intent on blinding the cockpit crew of a jumbo jet using Vancouver International Airport.

    A Vancouver Sun reader had called on Tuesday after seeing the green light, concerned that it posed a threat to aircraft.

    But Transport Canada communications adviser Jillian Glover said Wednesday it was nothing to be alarmed over. "It's a laser operated by the Centre for Atmospheric Research Experiments at UBC," said Glover.

    "The centre has a permit to use the laser from Transport Canada, as it meets all safety regulations."

    Not all incidents involving lasers near airports fit this category.

    Since 2005, Transport Canada has compiled 33 reports of pilots whose cockpits were penetrated by lasers from the ground while they were approaching or leaving Canadian airports.

    Four of those incidents occurred in B.C.

    Since 2000, there have been 10 reports of lasers being aimed at aircraft or the control tower at Vancouver International Airport.

    Glover said the sale of lasers capable of beaming light thousands of feet in the air and compromising aircraft safety has been regulated.

    "There are different classes of lasers. Class One lasers can be bought in stores, but high-powered lasers used for scientific research or laser shows or military purposes are restricted and require a permit to purchase and operate," she said.

    Transport Canada has been regulating the use of lasers and bright lights since 2000.

    Incidents of lasers being seen by cockpit crews are reported to the police for investigation, she said.

    "Obviously the concern is that the laser will distract the crew and cause potential problems, especially when an aircraft is trying to land," she said.

    There have been incidents in which pilots claimed to have suffered eye damage after being hit by laser beams. In 1997, two military helicopter pilots gathering intelligence about a Russian merchant ship in Juan De Fuca Strait reported seeing a flash of bright light coming from the ship, and both suffered eye damage.

    The latest incident involving lasers in B.C. occurred March 25 when three controllers at Vancouver International Airport's South Tower were hit by a green laser directed at the tower from Richmond's Terra Nova area. The controllers' sight was affected for 25 minutes and the incident was reported to the RCMP. yoga retreat
