About this product
- DescriptionPeter Fisher's Odyssey: Marine Mammal Warfare This is a story of marine mammal warfare involving the development and deployment of dolphins and whales as open ocean weaponry platforms created and utilized by the CIA for separate, but interrelated, missions against China, Cuba, and Russia. These marine mammal platforms are capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction into any of the world's harbors or open ocean locales. The story's significance lies in its scientific secrecy and political intrigue relative to the self-proclaimed omnipotence of those who control the development and operational use of such weaponry. The CIA's dolphin and whale weaponry bears a significant relationship to their development and deployment of drones; they are the drone's underwater counterpart. Peter's story transports its reader into the unique underwater Atlantis of dolphins and whales (70% of the earth's surface) as the opposing marine mammal weapon systems of the CIA and the Chinese attempt to resolve political differences and confusions by killing one ather. The story unfurls around the CIA's determination that the Chinese are developing Pilot Whales for use in anti-submarine warfare, and to also make the techlogy available (capable of delivering weapons of mass destruction) to Islamic extremists so they, and t China, will become America's prime adversary. This would leave China to be the mediator, benefactor, and the moving force in reconciling the world's priorities and their assumption of world leadership. The CIA's strategy is to stop the Chinese development of marine mammal weaponry dead in its tracks. This causes Hamilton (an Assistant Director of the CIA) to send a CIA armada of biological weaponry to confront and battle the Chinese systems in the Yellow Sea of China. The CIA's development of its marine mammal weaponry, the Operant conditioning (training) of their animals, and the technical capacities implicit to their remote control over long open ocean transits, has implications that go beyond the obvious. The capacities of the CIA's animals are compared to the achievements of the Pavlovian conditioning of the Chinese whales. Therefore, the battle that takes place in the primordial womb of Mother Ocean between the American and Chinese marine mammal systems becomes a battle to the death between opposing theories of behavior and political philosophy. The significance of this showdown lies in which theory prevails and why? Peter Fisher's Odyssey is presented as a carefully drawn parallel to Melville's Moby Dick. Peter, like Ishmael, the only survivor to step forth from the whaling ship Pequod, also becomes a lone survivor. However, Peter, unlike Ishmael, is t just a passive observer and crewmember of the Pequod, but of the marine mammal control vessel, Rachel, and he, rather than being a passive observer, is Ahab's (the CIA's) unwitting alter ego. The story is symbolic of the madness of Ahab, while the implicit evilness of the Great White Whale becomes the inherent failure of civilization and theology. Peter's story, as told, is fiction, but the use and development of such systems by the CIA is real and may have even greater humanistic, scientific, and philosophic significance, for truth is invariably stranger than fiction. Certainly, the reader's understanding of the Ocean People (dolphins and whales), will, by the advent of Hamilton's Grand Armada, have obtained an appreciation of the biological and scientific significance of these extraordinary animals - an understanding that will both surprise and challenge key beliefs, following a read which will have been as fascinating as it is politically and psychologically enlightening.
- Author BiographyMichael Greenwood was born September 10, 1932 in Weeting Norfolk, England. He immigrated to the United States in 1951. He was immediately drafted and spent four years in the United States Air Force - his last duty station was the Pentagon. Upon his discharge from the Service, he attended the Universities of Maryland and Connecticut, where he graduated with a Master of Science Degree in Physiological Experimental Psychology. His lifelong scientific interest has dealt with learning theory and brain function. Upon leaving the University of Connecticut, he joined North American Aviation in Columbus, Ohio where he worked in their Advanced Engineering Division on special equipment concepts for the U2 highflying spy aircraft. He was then recruited from North American by the Department of the Navy as a Civilian Scientist where he became involved in their renowned saturation diving and ocean floor habitation experiments, focused on ocean floor habitation to depths of 1400 feet to facilitate scientific, industrial and military interests involving man living on the ocean floor of the continental shelves of all of the world's land masses. While working for the Department of the Navy, he returned to the University of Connecticut and matriculated for his Ph.D. He also became significantly involved in (1) inshore warfare; (2) fluid breathing; (3) saturation diving; (4) the rescue and recovery of nuclear submarines lost in deep water; and (5) the separate development by the Navy of marine mammals as biological weapon platforms. He was put on loan by the Department of the Navy to the CIA to assist in the development of their dolphin weapon systems, wherein their dolphin and whales became and remain as the underwater precursors of the CIA's present-day pilotless drones (the CIA and the Navy's work with marine mammals were entirely separate and duplicitous) . After a very successful career as a government scientist, he left the Department of the Navy and focused on the concepts that have always guided his thinking, mainly a clear and humanistic definition of what the real scientific priorities of this country are, or should be, if America is to prevail as the world's leader. Towards this end, upon leaving the government, he became a college teacher, lecturer, and writer and continued as a notable scientist heading significant research groups and corporate enterprises. His ongoing work involves the Pangaea Technology which he currently anticipates taking to China.
