Angels Don’t Play This HAARP by Dr Nick Begich and Jeane Manning

Angels Don’t Play This HAARP: Advances in Tesla Technology by Dr Nick Begich and Jeane Manning was first published in 1995. The 2nd edition with minor updates was first published in 2002.

Angels Don’t Play This HAARP by Dr Nick Begich and Jeane Manning

The book is about the technology that can and is (most likely) used to alter the Earth’s ionosphere. There are multiple applications.

Although the High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) is not the only program to attempt ionospheric manipulation, the authors use the available information regarding this program to explain the technology and its applications. It is also their intent to call for more supervision on the use of such technology since it is potentially dangerous for the environment as well as for human and animal life.

The main text is under 200 pages, organized into four parts with a total of 29 chapters which are short. At the end is a short glossary, illustrations and some updates.

There is a helpful 4-page timeline at the start which briefly mentions some key activities related to ionospheric experimentation beginning with Tesla’s work in the late-1800s.

The main text begins with some history, including Tesla’s work, before describing the technology associated with HAARP. Since this area of science and engineering is generally not discussed, they are described in general terms and some of it is speculation (which is fine as the authors’ reasoning is sound).

The former is the text’s biggest weakness, that the science is described in merely general terms. This does mostly make it an easier read and it is informative, but is not very concrete. It would be helpful, even if it means having an extra chapter or two, to go through some high school physics followed by some high-level math that elaborates on the general principles of how the technology might work.

In short, by using antenna arrays to focus energy to (a point in) the ionosphere, one can achieve the following. The list is in no particular order.

  • Alter atmospheric conditions and therefore weather patterns, including the possibility of earthquakes.

  • Activity at one location can have an impact on its antipode.

  • Long-range over-the-horizon telecommunication such as, for example, low-frequency transmissions to submarines and detection of vehicles.

  • Long-range over-the-horizon telecommunication that simultaneously disrupts another’s telecommunication.

  • Wireless power transmission to aircraft, thereby potentially keeping them in the air indefinitely.

  • By altering atmospheric conditions, this can disrupt an adversary’s aircraft and deflect incoming missiles, including nukes, hence HAARP’s connection to the “Star Wars” program.

  • Using high-energy microwaves, this can alter the composition of chemicals in the atmosphere. This has potential benefits as it can clean up the atmosphere but obviously can be hazardous as well. It can also disrupt if not destroy aircraft.

  • Energy pulses that destroy electronics can be transmitted (basically an EMP).

  • Energy pulses can also have biological effects, used to damage tissue and the nervous system. It should be noted that low frequencies can impact brainwaves, including the possibility of mind control. In other words, the system has the potential to incapacitate the population in multiple ways. The same can be applied to healing effects.

Initially, there were 12 patents held by Advanced Power Technologies (APTI) that were associated with “Star Wars”. APTI was “the main contractor on the first phase of the HAARP project”. (It should be noted that APTI was later bought out by E-Systems which in turn was later bought out by Raytheon.) Chapter 15 briefly describes the 12 patents. They are listed below.

  • US 4,686,605 “Method and apparatus for altering a region in the earth's atmosphere, ionosphere, and/or magnetosphere”

  • US 5,038,664 “Method for producing a shell of relativistic particles at an altitude above the earth’s surface”

  • US 4,712,155 “Method and apparatus for creating an artificial electron cyclotron heating region of plasma”

  • US 5,068,669 “Power beaming system”

  • US 5,128,374 “Power beaming system with printed circuit radiating elements having resonating cavities”

  • US 5,293,176 “Folded cross grid dipole antenna element”

  • US 5,202,689 “Lightweight focusing reflector for space”

  • US 5,014,834 “Artificial ionospheric mirror composed of a plasma layer which can be tilted”

  • US 4,999,637 “Creation of artificial ionization clouds above the earth”

  • US 4,954,709 “High resolution directional gamma ray detector”

  • US 4,817,495 “Defense system for discriminating between objects in space” (See figures below.)

  • US 4,873,928 “Nuclear-sized explosions without radiation”

Overall, in terms of content, it is a convenient resource that describes in general terms what the technology can do. As mentioned above, the science can be described in more concrete terms but it is not a bad book. Although not difficult to read, the font size can be larger and the book is also clearly self-published, lacking a nice layout.
