Electrosensitivity / Revista CS

Below is a copy of some of my correspondence with Revista CS (www.icesi.edu.co/revistas/index.php/revista_cs) regarding the potential publication of Coping with Asymmetric Tragedies under Imperfect Information – Electrosensitivity and the Ubiquitous EMF Exposure with its current statement of copyright. No response has so far been received to my email dated September 7, 2017. Received emails which are not included below have included a statement which appears to attempt to prohibit disclosure of the contents to anyone else expect the intended recipient of the email – apparently thus also aiming to prevent, for instance, assessment of the extent to which “scientific” or “academic” standards may or may not have been observed during the submission and potential review and publication processes.

The paper has so far been submitted to an actual or alleged essay competition where no response was received to inquiries on the status of the submission or results of the actual or alleged essay competition, a journal which appeared to discontinue its operations after accepting the paper for publication in its “next issue” but before the issue was actually published and another journal which waited until the issue to which the paper was submitted was published before giving trivial – if not clearly inappropriate – feedback which one might well have expected to have been sent relatively soon after the first reading of the paper by the editors/reviewers to allow any potential revised and accepted paper to be published in the issue to which it was submitted.

The paper states, among other things, the following:

“The asymmetric nature of the resulting personal tragedies stems largely from the incapacity of the current exposure limits – designed to prevent excessive heating of homogeneous matter only – to protect living organisms from non-thermal, non-linear health effects. Contrary to a common belief, the existence of such effects is not denied by the relevant authorities, but merely regarded as an unsuitable basis for setting exposure limits (Hyland, 2001: 21).”

“active research on how to produce ‘death by heart seizure or by neurological pathologies resulting from breaching of the blood-brain barrier’ in animals and ‘metabolic disorders’ or ‘sounds and possibly even words which appear to be originating intracranially’ in humans through the use of EMFs has been reported at least since the 1970s (Hyland, 2001: 16)”

“any person suffering from any EMF-induced symptom could be classified as electrosensitive according to the common but inaccurate view that EMFs do not have non-thermal effects”

“[according to the Nuremberg Code] No experiment should also be conducted ‘where there is an a priori reason to believe that death or disabling injury will occur’ (ibid.), with the possible exception of cases where the experimenters themselves also serve as subjects.”

“A refusal by any politician, company executive, researcher or regulatory bureaucrat with significant interests in the wireless communication industry to submit to the most harmful forms of experimentation would effectively amount to rejecting the notion that the same standards of decency that the Nazi doctors should have adhered to in order to avoid their conviction in Nuremberg also apply to the specific individual in question.” (footnotes omitted)

In other words, the world may well be a ubiquitous war zone where criminal, totalitarian, authoritarian, fascist, terrorist, conspiratorial, cartelist and/or cultist alleged or self-declared “authorities” or “corporations” may have been implementing a de facto genocide and worse for decades behind alleged “trade” or “national security” related secrecy. From the perspective of the EMF exposure standards, anything and everything – including but not limited to deliberately implementing “death by heart seizure or by neurological pathologies resulting from breaching of the blood-brain barrier”, “metabolic disorders”, “sounds and possibly even words which appear to be originating intracranially” or any other types of physiological damage or control which might be partly implemented through EMFs such as mind-reading, -modeling, -influencing or -control or remote torture for all forms of life and/or environments where it is technically feasible to do so – is permitted as long as the power levels involved would not heat homogeneous matter – dead or alive – more than the specified amount. (With potentially every significant power-wielder in the world co-opted and/or aware of the possibility of being assassinated through allegedly “natural causes” by, for instance, EMFs, it may not be entirely clear how any potential deliberate violations of even the existing clearly inadequate or inappropriate EMF exposure standards could be prevented. Once essentially the entire world has been weaponized or converted into a war zone through, for instance, satellites, terrestrial wireless “communication” and potentially assassination systems and/or EMF weapons specifically designed for such purposes, it may be clearly unreasonable to assume that any potential torture or assassinations which, for the sake of the argument, might be deliberately implemented through EMF-induced tissue heating in excess of the prevailing “safety” standards despite the potential availability of effective means of torture and/or assassination within the prevailing EMF “safety” standards could necessarily always be prevented, measured, proven or successfully prosecuted under some of the prevailing “legal” hypocrisies or fictions.)

The assumption that the world would still be in an “experimentation” phase regarding many potential applications of EMFs in inflicting, for instance, pain, injuries, death or external mind or bodily control potentially at relatively low power levels is potentially clearly incorrect. From the perspective of one of the potential precedents under some of the prevailing “legal” hypocrisies or fictions – the Nuremberg Code – the suggested, desired or allegedly “legal” course of action might well involve deliberately exposing all significant power-wielders – if not everyone who has the requisite personal autonomy and capacity to demand unconditional respect for bodily integrity and an end to non-consensual manmade EMF exposure which violates such bodily integrity but fails to do so – to the most harmful effects of low-power EMFs – such as death. Such deliberate exposure might continue until it might be widely acknowledged that no further “experimentation” might be needed to prove the potential lethality of EMFs at relatively low power levels and the actual EMF exposure standards were adjusted and the existing essentially military hardware in buildings, rooftops, the space and elsewhere eliminated accordingly. In case some significant power-wielders – or individuals who have the requisite personal autonomy and capacity to demand unconditional respect for bodily integrity and an end to non-consensual manmade EMF exposure which violates such bodily integrity but fail to do so – are unwilling to subject themselves to death by relatively low-power EMFs as a part of alleged “experimentation”, what has been taking place worldwide at least for decades might thus be acknowledged as a willingly and knowingly implemented genocide and worse and everyone who had not made reasonable – if not their best – efforts to inform the public about such an ongoing genocide and worse and to stop it might thus be executed as potentially one of the closest feasible approximations to legality (see Beyond Legality) rather than as a part of alleged “experiments”.

On which side in such a potential genocidal war against humanness might any potential “journals”, “editors” or “academics” arranging actual or alleged essay competitions who do not either publish relevant material or protest against the effective closure of their publication outlets or their own effective dismissals from editorial positions be?

If electrosensitivity is defined as any symptom or effect induced by EMFs falling within the prevailing “safety” standards (or any EMF-induced symptom or effect in case ubiquitous observance of the prevailing “safety” standards is assumed rather than comprehensively enforced), is it not obvious that every human being is electrosensitive by definition simply by virtue of belonging to a biological species which might react to certain types of EMFs in certain ways even below the prevailing “safety” standards? If so, do not any potential surveys on self-reported electrosensitivity simply measure, for instance, one’s level of knowledge and willingness and ability to express such knowledge in surveys rather than the underlying biological realities?

Irrespective of the technological means through which singularity or “trans-/posthuman” technologies enabling, for instance, mind-reading, -modeling, -influencing or -control might be non-consensually implemented, does the entire humanity or world not become a potential weapon which could to some extent be externally controlled to expose whistleblowers, dissidents or non-nihilists to “environmental” violence which might result in their marginalization or death through allegedly “naturally” occurring causes?

Dear L. Fernando Baron,

The paper has been submitted to an essay competition on “Facing Tragedies” organized by The Center for Ethics and Poverty Research, University of Salzburg in October 2007 and accepted for publication in Dictum. In the case of the essay competition, I did not receive responses to my subsequent emails after submitting the paper. I have not received a confirmation on whether the competition ever actually took place. In the case of Dictum, the paper was accepted for publication in their “next issue”, but the issue itself never appears to have been published. Once again, I did not receive responses to my subsequent emails after receiving a confirmation that the paper has been accepted for publication in the next issue of Dictum. The journal appears to have been discontinued before the paper was published.

According to your email, “we are asking you an updated version of your paper. Otherwise we are not able to publish it in a future number of the journal, because the call you are mentioning in your mail was already published.” Which course of action would you regard as a (more serious) potential violation of substantive “scientific” or “academic” standards: adding a paper to your website after a specific “call” or issue has been published or deliberately preventing the publication of a paper which “the general editor as well as the special issue editors” found “compelling” in the issue to which it was submitted? Is the former not simply an administrative matter and potentially well justified from a “scientific” or “academic” perspective? There are, after all, journals which publish papers continuously as soon as they have passed the review process. It could also be argued that the burden of proof for showing the alleged necessity of preventing access to “scientific” or “academic” information or knowledge for any period of time after it has passed the review process is on the side of those who might advocate such restrictions on mere administrative or policy grounds. On the other hand, is the latter course of action that you appear to be advocating not a potentially serious violation of substantive “scientific” or “academic” standards – among other things, preventing openly acknowledged access by a significant part of the intended audience to “scientific” or “academic” material which nonetheless may already have an unacknowledged or under-acknowledged impact on “science” through those individuals who do have access to the material in question prior to its publication?

Would Revista CS thus be willing to publish the paper on your website immediately in its current form and with its current statement of copyright?

Kind regards,
Tero Auvinen

Dear Editors,

The paper was submitted to “the special issue on ‘Journalism, media, and agendas’” which was to “be published ends august, 2017. If your proposal gets a positive review by the peers, then will be included on this issue.” Issue “No 22, Mayo-Agosto (2017): Periodismos, medios y agendas” was indeed published in late August 2017. As the change of the general editor of Revista CS did not prevent the publication of the special issue to which the paper was submitted, it hardly justifies not submitting the results of the review process to the author in time to allow making any potential changes before the publication of the special issue to which the paper was submitted.

If the submitted version of the article is “compelling”, why would it need “new bibliography”? According to Revista CS, should more recent material be cited just because it was published more recently regardless of its merits? If yes, why? Would it not, among other things, increase the alleged impact factors of recent publications beyond what they would deserve based on their substantive merits and crowd out potentially higher quality older publications?

Is the “new bibliography” a mere suggestion or a de facto requirement without which the paper could not be published – preferably in the issue to which it was submitted?

Kind regards,
Tero Auvinen

Dear Editors,

The http://www.icesi.edu.co/revistas/index.php/revista_cs/author/submission/2405 website has stated “Asignación en espera” as the current status of the submission at least since early June 2017. What does this mean in practice?

Kind regards,
Tero Auvinen
