Molecular geneticist Dr. Michael Nehls tells Mike Adams: The real war for control of civilization is taking place inside our head
03/06/2024 // Belle Carter // Views

An award-winning German author and world-renowned molecular geneticist made a bombshell revelation that the battlespace for all conflicts worldwide is cognitive – planted in a complex brain structure embedded deep into the temporal lobe called the hippocampus.

The hippocampus has a major role in learning and autobiographical memories. It was called that name because it looks like an anatomical image of a seahorse and the hippocampus is the scientific name of a seahorse.

"That's where the warfare is taking place," said Dr. Michael Nehls, author of "The Indoctrinated Brain," during an interview with founder Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, in a recent episode of the "Health Ranger Report" (HRR).

Adams agreed, citing the wars where governments are constantly pushing out their propaganda and lies.

"There's no real information. All is being pushed through controlled narratives. And through media that's designed to say to you: 'Don't think for yourself. Don't question anything, you're not an authoritative source.' You should trust and believe them no matter what – which means don't think for yourself," the HRR host lamented.

"It's even worse," Nehls said. "A certain level of information is actually coming through. It's about installing, essentially, a new operating system in our brains, which shouldn't be interfered by either previous knowledge or alternative views."

He added that if one would want to modify the brain one needs to control what goes into this brain. Adams quipped that this is where narrative control, censorship of alternative views and "no one can question science" come in. According to the doctor, this happens because the psychological resilience is down. Thus, people have a high likelihood of developing depression.

"It's not depression per se but if we can cope with life events, that's good. And if we don't cope with them, then depression is more likely. So, depression is essentially a clinical marker for a reduction or blocked neurogenesis, almost like a reverse relationship," he further explained.

Neurogenesis is the formation of new neurons from neural stem and progenitor cells which occurs in various brain regions such as the sub-granular zone of dentate gyrus in the hippocampus and the subventricular zone of lateral ventricles.

Elsewhere in the discussion, Adams curiously inquired about why some people who have a very high intelligence quotient (IQ) are also extremely gullible. Nehls answered that IQ is essentially measured by the number of things one can juggle in his short-term memory at the same time. "This takes place, according to modern theory, in the frontal brain. And so we can have a high IQ, even without a hippocampus," he said citing one person who lost his hippocampus via surgery and got 112 IQ test results.

Nehls: Purpose in life prevents hippocampal shrinkage

During the show, Nehls projected a graph of hippocampal growth from the time one is born onward from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, a branch of the National Institutes of Health.

"When you're born, you have about three cubic centimeters in volume, 1.5 each hippocampus. There is a steep growth rate up to adulthood. Then you have a one to two percent growth rate for the rest of your life," he said. In the same table, information from gene bank data showed that out there was a fast hippocampal shrinkage rate for 20,000 British people starting in 2019.

Adams jokingly interjected that this is why nothing in the British military works, "the missiles don't launch and then others don't turn on the aircraft carriers," adding that he would hate to see the hippocampal shrinkage data of Americans. The renowned author agreed and said that it is possible to be seen in every nation because of the modern lifestyle and "it doesn't differ too much from one country to the other."

Nehls added this is only the tip of the iceberg. Another point he raised is that the world has a chronic exhaustion society.

"People are either depleted already when they wake up in the morning. We have depression as the number one disease now. Alzheimer's disease is now number three or number four worldwide as a cause of death and it is a consequence of several decades of suppressed neurogenesis," he further revealed. He then presented another chart, which showed all the areas in life that are responsible for the growth of the hippocampus. It included physical activity, social life, sleep, nutrition and time.

"We need a purpose in life. Without it, we wouldn't memorize new things. We wouldn't explore new things. We wouldn't be waking up in the morning and doing something noble," added Nehls. "We need something that pushes us to a purpose. And when you have a purpose in life, then you'd give food essentially, memorize memories to these new index neurons in this survival."

He also pointed out how social activity is important. Even simple stimulants like looking at a dog's eyes can help raise oxytocin levels in the brain. Oxytocin is the most potent activator of neurogenesis that we know of, meaning "if you shut down social interaction, you reduce the oxytocin serotonin level and the hippocampus will shrink."
