Make The Right to Mental Privacy one of our new Human Rights

Hoping to help make the right to mental privacy one of our new Human Rights with this Petition by Jeffrey Robert Palin Jr. . A right to mental privacy would protect individuals against the unconsented intrusion by third parties into their brain data as well as against the unauthorized collection of those data. The right to mental privacy being protected by law would be protection against some invasive technology. This link makes a great case for the right to mental privacy https://lsspjournal.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s40504-017-0050-1 . (If that link is no good try this one https://pdfs.semanticscholar.org/5fc4/3a7e7e8a447a498606846aee0c99d7d51e77.pdf?_ga=2.37969379.1743621299.1551550527-126217964.1546796744 .

Here’s a link to an article dated 10/29/2019 that tells some of the concerns of having a lack of mental privacy : https://www.zdnet.com/google-amp/article/mind-reading-technology-the-security-privacy-and-inequality-threats-we-will-face/ .

Here are some examples of potentially invasive technology : fmri scans https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2018/01/mind-reading-algorithm-can-decode-pictures-your-head and EEG - brainwaves can be potentially recorded without individual’s awareness, and therefore in absence of a real ability of the person to consent to the collection and use of that information (For example : The individual is unconscious and informed consent was obtained from a proxy decision maker such as a close family member or spouse). This can also be invasive technology if we can’t choose to not say certain thoughts https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.digitaltrends.com/cool-tech/ai-thought-to-speech/%3famp . This link is an example of a neural implant that doesn’t require open surgery https://futurism.com/neoscope/noninvasive-neural-implant-clinical-trials . This link mentions what it calls mind reading technology https://www.theorganicprepper.com/mind-reading-technology/ . This can also become invasive technology with additions such as a transceiver/transponder that communicates to a computer, and have a computer/person with a receiver https://hearinghealthmatters.org/blog/2018/mit-alterego-device-can-hear-your-thoughts/ .

As for Microwave Auditory Effect, Voice 2 Skull, Synthetic Telepathy, and Electronic Harassment - Here’s some helpful information : 

Using DSP head transforms, you can be made to hear something directionally, that did not truly come from that direction. It can sound like up, down, or from the side, and can track your head telemetry, so the perceived direction/source stays consistent. This is describing SRS or QSound, using a non-traditional medium. One can create audio without traditional speakers (loudspeakers, acoustic drivers), using the ultrasonic and microwave bands. One can target individual ears/cochlea for a stereo channel (which enables the DSP head related transfer functions). These technologies are not controversial when used seperately, and have been around for decades. Technologies that harness the ultrasound, radio and microwave bands (usually inaudible to humans, and silent to microphones) can make you hear audio that was not emitted from traditional loudspeakers or headphones. When the technology has a stereo capability, the two channels (one per ear) also enable the DSP directional transforms. Imagine a pair of invisible side-by-side beams that hit your cranium, which are pulse/intensity-modulated to evoke an audio channel at range. Combine that with the DSP transforms to trick the target into searching in any direction but the origin. This can be and is done by satellites.
