21st Century Combat Magic Resources

Q: What is Combat Magic?  A: Combat Magic is the application of military and martial science to the field of magic

Q: What does Combat Magic work? A: Combat Magic is an entirely new arsenal of tools, designed to introduce subliminal messages or to alter the body's psychological and data-processing capabilities, or to incapacitate hostile enemies. These tools aim to control or alter the psyche, or to attack the various sensory and data-processing systems of the human organism. In both cases, the goal is to confuse or destroy the signals that normally keep the body in equilibrium. It can also involve manipulating information or how the enemy perceives or processes information so that they will be compelled to take actions favorable to one's own side.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Combat Magic focuses on applying military/martial principals and strategies. It is very different from other magical tools such as "hexes", "curses" and "wards" that are vastly more limited in scope and capability. It is based on controlling ones opponents information flow, processing and perception at a subconscious level. Combat Magic is about "influencing" opponents through the use of  subconscious/psychic attacks or to alter the body's psychological and data-processing capabilities. These weapons aim to control or alter the psyche, or to attack the various sensory and data-processing systems of the target with the goal of controlling behavior, perception or incapacitating them. 

Psychic based Influence Operations (Combat Magic) are aimed at achieving specific desired objectives and effects such as changing attitudes, beliefs, or behavior. They have the following characteristics:
•    They are directed toward clear specific targets, whether an individual, groups, a population subgroup, or the mass public  
•    They make use of the most effective combination of information channels that are most likely to reach the targets.  
•    They are mindful of target characteristics, strengths and weaknesses, attitudes and beliefs that affect a targets willingness to be influenced.
•    They are designed to influence targets before they decide or or actually engage in negative behaviors. 
•    They use information based messages whose content, format, cognitive and emotional appeal, and other characteristics will most resonate with the targets conscious & subconscious.

  1.  The Mind Has No Firewall: An entirely new arsenal of weapons, based on devices designed to introduce subliminal messages or to alter the body's psychological and data-processing capabilities, might be used to incapacitate individuals. These weapons aim to control or alter the psyche, or to attack the various sensory and data-processing systems of the human organism. In both cases, the goal is to confuse or destroy the signals that normally keep the body in equilibrium. This article examines energy-based weapons, psychotronic weapons, and other developments designed to alter the ability of the human body to process stimuli.
  2. Human Network Attacks: It is the security of the data processor known as the mind, which unfortunately has no innate firewall to protect it from either deceptive or electromagnetic processes. As a result, the mind of the soldier on the battlefield is potentially the most exploitable and unprotected IW capability our military possesses. Soldiers vulnerability to human network attacks (HNA) should be an area of close attention for scientists in the early years of the new millennium."In the past half century the potential for working on the consciousness, psyche or morale of a person, society or the composition of an armed force has grown dramatically. One of the main reasons is the considerable success achieved by many countries in their systematic research in the areas of psychology, psychotronics, parapsychology, other new psychophysical phenomenon, bioenergy, biology and psy-choenergy in the fields of security and defense.

  4. From Psyops to Neurowar: What Are the Dangers? Current  and  near future technology will make it possible to not only merely influence the enemy’s mind and  behavior,  but  to  actually  control  it. This paper argues  that new  methods of influencing  the  brain  and  the  central  nervous  system  and  thereby mental  capacity,  emotion,  and  thought could  become  central  to  future  military  strategy and  the  conduct  of  war,  conflict,  and  economic  competition.
  5. Influence Operations Resources: Influence operations are focused on affecting the perceptions and behaviors of leaders, groups, or entire populations. Influence operations employ capabilities to affect behaviors, protect operations, communicate commander’s intent, and project accurate information to achieve desired effects across the cognitive domain. These effects should result in differing behavior or a change in the adversary’s decision cycle, which aligns with the commander’s objectives. Different view of IO Resources

•   Military unit 10003, which studies the occult and mysticism, reportedly to understand the recruiting and “brain washing” techniques of these groups
•   Anti-ESP training in the strategic rocket forces, designed to enable missile launchers to establish mental firewalls in case someone from the outside attempts to take over their thoughts
•   Astrologers in the Ministry of Defense, who predict ambushes, plane crashes, and other phenomenon
•   Practice with the “25th frame effect,” which tries to insert a subliminal message into every 25th frame of a movie or computer generated scene
•   Applying electromagnetic impulses to the head of a soldier to adjust his/her psychophysical data
•   Remote viewing and psychotronics 

  1. Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP): Influence and Information Gathering
  1. SAMPLE PSI RESEARCH PUBLICATIONS:  This is a selected list of downloadable peer-reviewed journal articles about psi (psychic) phenomena, most published in the 21st century. There are also some papers of historical interest and other resources.  
  2. Working Psychology Resources:  Working Psychology works with social influence: the modern, scientific study of persuasion, compliance, propaganda, "brainwashing," and the ethics that surround these issues.  Since World War II, social influence has become a vastly expanding field of study devoted to discovering the principles that determine our beliefs, create our attitudes, and move us to action.
  3. NEURINT could be used to (1) enable strategic and/or tactical engagement with, or manipulation of individuals’ or groups’ psychological state(s); (2) provide insights for development of counternarratives that exert maximal effect upon target individuals’ and groups’ neuro-cognitive processes; and/or (3)  develop information and/or cyber-based approaches to influencing content and effect(s) of various forms of messaging used by target individuals and groups (e.g.- social media, etc.).  
  4. White Paper on Bio-Psycho-Social Applications to Cognitive Engagement - Information Operations (IO) doctrine defines the cognitive domain as the component of the information environment (IE) that encompasses the gray matter of those who transmit, receive, and act upon information.  Cognitive engagement entails understanding the individual nodes with the human domain as such and developing appropriate methods for interacting with them. To paraphrase Sir Basil Henry Liddell Hart, targeting the mind of the enemy commander is more important than the bodies of his troop
  5. TUTORIAL: MILITARY MEMETICS: Military Memetics is the application of memes for national security. It is a subset of Neuro-Cognitive Warfare. It can provide a coherent, scientific approach for information operations, psychological warfare, and the general war against terrorists. It can prevent or mitigate irrational conflict, reduce the probability of war or defeat, and increase the probability of peace or victory.
  6. Sensemaking: Understanding complex, ambiguous  environments: Sensemaking is actively working to comprehend the connections among people, places, and events to understand the "big picture". Sensemaking is the "motivated, continuous effort to understand connections (which can be among people, places, and events) in order to anticipate their trajectories and act effectively." It is an activity that depends on extracting environmental cues, interpreting their meaning, and then connecting them in a plausible story.

20th Century Combat Magic

  1. The First Earth Battalion Handbook: The First Earth Battalion was the name proposed by Lieutenant Colonel Jim Channon, a U.S. soldier who had served in Vietnam, for his idea of a new military of supersoldiers to be organized along New Age lines. Channon envisioned that the First Earth Battalion would organize itself informally: uniforms without uniformity, structure without status, and unity powered by diversity, and members would be multicultural, with each race contributing to "rainbow power".[4] He also proposed as a guiding principle that members of the First Earth Battalion seek nondestructive methods of conflict resolution because their first loyalty is to the planet.
  2. "The New Mental Battlefield: Beam Me Up, Spock.": PSYCHOTRONICS may be described as the interaction of mind and matter.Two subdivisions of this field have also been investigated. Mind-altering techniques designed to impact on an opponent are well-advanced.The procedures employed include manipulation of human behavior through use of psychological weapons effecting sight, sound, smell, temperature, electromagnetic energy or sensory deprivation.The other area of experimentation involves parapsychological phenomena known as the out-of-body experience (OOBE), remote viewing, extrasensory perception or bioinformation, depending on the source and technique employed. It has been demonstrated that certain persons appear to have the ability to mentally retrieve data from afar while physically remaining in a secure location.
  3. PSYCHIC WARFARE: EXPLORING THE MIND FRONTIER: Man's greatest potential remains a prisoner of man. Vast untapped mental capabilities create an entirely new battlefield dimension which, if ignored, pose a threat to self and country more serious than nuclear weapons. This threat starts from within. Our fears and cynical attitudes towards psychic capabilities make us our own worst enemies. The Soviets, on the other hand, take psychic research very seriously at all levels, particularly for its military application. Exploring the mind frontier is essential and the key to successful exploration is a greater psychic awareness. The mind is rich in unfathomed resources ripe for exploration, a limitless source of treasures for advancing all mankind, and a serious threat to those who ignore its potential. We must overcome our psychic inhibitions, stop denying the existence of paranormal events, and start trying instead to understand the nature of these phenomena. 
  4. The CIA Star Gate Remote Viewng program; Project Star gate is the collective name for advanced psychic functioning or Remote viewing experiments and programs that were undertaken for over twenty years to create a trainable, repeatable, operational and if at all possible, accurate method of psychic spying or information gathering for the U.S. Military and intelligence agencies (CIA, NSA, DIA).
  5. Psychic Spies, Acid Guinea Pigs, New Age Soldiers: the True Men Who Stare at Goats: More of this Movie is more true than you would believe,” we’re told, just a few minutes into the movie version of The Men Who Stare At Goats, which opens today. But how many of the film’s outlandish military research projects really happened? Turns out there’s plenty of material in the movie which sticks quite close to the truth — though reality is a bit more complicated.
  6. OODA Loop: The phrase OODA loop refers to the decision cycle of observe, orient, decide, and act, developed by military strategist and USAF Colonel John Boyd. Boyd applied the concept to the combat operations process, often at the strategic level in military operations. It is now also often applied to understand commercial operations and learning processes. The approach favors agility over raw power in dealing with human opponents in any endeavor.


Older Combat Magic

  1. The Art of War: The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the 5th century BC. Attributed to the ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Wu, the text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It was placed at the head of China's Seven Military Classics upon the collection's creation in 1080 by Emperor Shenzong of Song, and has long been the most influential strategy text in East Asia. It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond. Can be used to apply magic in a fighting situation.
  2. GO RIN NO SHO: A BOOK OF FIVE RINGS: The Book of Five Rings is a text on kenjutsu and the martial arts in general, written by the swordsman Miyamoto Musashi circa 1645.Musashi establishes a "no-nonsense" theme throughout the text. For instance, he repeatedly remarks that technical flourishes are excessive, and contrasts worrying about such things with the principle that all technique is simply a method of cutting down one's opponent. He also continually makes the point that the understandings expressed in the book are important for combat on any scale, whether a one-on-one duel or a massive battle. Descriptions of principles are often followed by admonitions to "investigate this thoroughly" through practice rather than trying to learn them by merely reading.  Can be used to apply magic in a fighting situation.

Magic for Enhanced Human Performance

  1. PSYCHIC SELF DEFENSE I: Assessing Your Own Vulnerabilities: A Tool for identifying your vulnerability to Psychic Attacks
  2. Boyd’s Real OODA Loop and Fencing: The fencer should seek to manipulate the opponent’s information uptake and not just go through movement and countermovement.  The real goal should be to modify the entropy in the fencing environment to one’s advantage.  This meant that the fencer seeks to ramp up the opponent’s entropy so that it is higher than one’s own.  This was done by adopting an information model of the fencing environment.  In this paradigm the fencers are seen as part of a communication system that involves the transmission and reception of fencing movements.  This allows one to use the idea of entropy.  In information theory entropy is a measure of how much information one needs to resolve the uncertainty in a given message. 
  3. DARPA Improving Warfighter Information Intake Under Stress— Augmented Cognition: One example of this new research is a program now known as the Improving Warfighter Information Intake Under Stress Program. Part of its purposes is to gain battlefield information superiority the enhancement of a single operator’s capabilities such that he or she could carry out the functions of three or more individuals. This belief that information superiority could be achieved by enhancing an operator’s cognitive abilities, Based on the concept of managing cognitive workload through neural and physiological feedback. It’s been long recognized that the information-processing capacity of humans has quickly become a limiting factor in human–computer interactions. This problem has spurred the development of a new scientific discipline called Augmented Cognition (AugCog). Addressing methods for detecting and mitigating limitations of human information processing and designing solutions to enhance exchanging and using information. 
  4. Systema: Principles of the Russian System: When practicing Systema, visualize yourself as a contiguous energy field. In other words, there is no separation of body from mind. Visualize your partner the same way and, as you begin to work, keep this awareness. Don’t contest, don’t try to do, just be moved. If you have truly understood the return energy drills the solutions will come of themselves. If we relax and “listen”, the solution will become apparent and all we have to do is implement it. However, if we already have a technique that we want to use to solve this problem we have limited our ability to perceive the most efficient solution.
  5. FLOW: The Psychology of Optimal Experience: In positive psychology, flow, also known as the zone, is the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. In essence, flow is characterized by complete absorption in what one does. According to Csikszentmihályi, flow is completely focused motivation. It is a single-minded immersion and represents perhaps the ultimate experience in harnessing the emotions in the service of performing and learning. In flow, the emotions are not just contained and channeled, but positive, energized, and aligned with the task at hand. The hallmark of flow is a feeling of spontaneous joy, even rapture, while performing a task, although flow is also described as a deep focus on nothing but the activity – not even oneself or one's emotions.
  6. Using Behavioral Indicators to Help Detect Potential Violent Acts: Our study focused on the science base for using new or nontraditional  technologies and methods to observe behaviors and how the data gathered from doing so might—especially when used with other information—help detect potential violent attacks.
  7. Improving Real-Time ESP by Suppressing the Futures: This document details the discovery that individuals successfully using telepathy to perceive real time targets are simultaneously and unknowingly using precognitive ESP to suppress their perception of future targets. 
  8. Predicting the unpredictable: critical analysis and practical implications of predictive anticipatory activity: A recent meta-analysis of experiments from seven independent laboratories (n = 26) indicates that the human body can apparently detect randomly delivered stimuli occurring 1–10 s in the future (Mossbridge et al., 2012). The key observation in these studies is that human physiology appears to be able to distinguish between unpredictable dichotomous future stimuli, such as emotional vs. neutral images or sound vs. silence. This phenomenon has been called presentiment (as in “feeling the future”). In this paper we call it predictive anticipatory activity (PAA). The phenomenon is “predictive” because it can distinguish between upcoming stimuli; it is “anticipatory” because the physiological changes occur before a future event; and it is an “activity” because it involves changes in the cardiopulmonary, skin, and/or nervous systems. PAA is an unconscious phenomenon that seems to be a time-reversed reflection of the usual physiological response to a stimulus. It appears to resemble precognition (consciously knowing something is going to happen before it does), but PAA specifically refers to unconscious physiological reactions as opposed to conscious premonitions.
