MIT Tin Foil Hat Study Flawed

While MIT students advance the study of the effectiveness to block mind control frequencies through the use of aluminum foil, their conclusions, that tin-foil hats amplify government signals, is deeply flawed.

But first let's examine their premise:
Among a fringe community of paranoids, aluminum helmets serve as the protective measure of choice against invasive radio signals. We investigate the efficacy of three aluminum helmet designs on a sample group of four individuals. Using a $250,000 network analyser, we find that although on average all helmets attenuate invasive radio frequencies in either directions (either emanating from an outside source, or emanating from the cranium of the subject), certain frequencies are in fact greatly amplified. These amplified frequencies coincide with radio bands reserved for government use according to the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). Statistical evidence suggests the use of helmets may in fact enhance the government's invasive abilities. We theorize that the government may in fact have started the helmet craze for this reason.

Photographic evidence from their own test shows that their test helmets, the "Classical", the "Fez," and the "Centurion," all have the dull-side outwards.

While their experiment has shown that:
For all helmets, we noticed a 30 db amplification at 2.6 Ghz and a 20 db amplification at 1.2 Ghz, regardless of the position of the antenna on the cranium. In addition, all helmets exhibited a marked 20 db attenuation at around 1.5 Ghz, with no significant attenuation beyond 10 db anywhere else.

Their conclusion that:
The helmets amplify frequency bands that coincide with those allocated to the US government between 1.2 Ghz and 1.4 Ghz. According to the FCC, These bands are supposedly reserved for ''radio location'' (ie, GPS), and other communications with satellites (see, for example, [3]). The 2.6 Ghz band coincides with mobile phone technology. Though not affiliated by government, these bands are at the hands of multinational corporations.

While highly revelatory it is no way conclusive. Studies at the Dharma Institute have reached similar conclusions when the dull-side is outwards, however:

It can't be stressed enough how important it is to have the shiny side pointing out. This is needed because the shiny side is most reflective to psychotronic radiation, while the dull side can actually, in certain environmental conditions, absorb it. However, as is illustrated in the instructions above, it is also wise to complement this with a layer of foil pointing shiny side in. This will keep your brain waves, which are also reflected by the shiny side, from being picked up by mind-reading equipment. There is a small number of aluminum foil researchers who believe that this may cause an alpha-wave harmonic to build up in the skull resulting in memory loss or pseudo-religious visions, but their findings have never been replicated by the aluminum foil research community at large. Even if their findings are validated, the risk involved is small compared to the potential of mind-intrusion.

While research at the Swan Station has been problematic about the nodal points of magnetism and psychotronic radiation the research from MIT adds a bit to the knowledge base despite functional flaws in the scientific method deployed.

We can not ascertain at this time whether these frequencies originate from covert governmental agencies or supra-national corporations until experiments are thoroughly concluded with the shiny-sided outward helmets.
