Rosalind Brodsky, of the Institute of Militronics and Advanced Time Interventionality (IMATI), has been researching new military-occult technologies for psychological warfare by examining techniques developed since the 16th Century by various martial and esoteric organisations. Much of the information that Brodsky is interested in is clandestine, and her primary work consists of teasing out links between military agencies and occult societies; the inference being that these two groups overlap in their experiments in parapsychology.

Brodsky gathers information, highlights connections and reveals extended webs of coincidence. For example, Polishborn film producer Samuel Goldwyn features prominently. He was the 'G' in MGM, although he was never actually involved in the conglomerate, a fact interpreted as cover for the independent sound studio that he maintained. Advanced sound technologies from the 1940s, like Fantasound, which was developed for the film Fantasia, have been seen as experiments in mass suggestion. Fantasia itself features the demon, Chernabog, created by animator Vladimir Tytla and based upon Crnobog, the Black God of an ancient Slavic pagan belief system (after whom the ill-fated Ukrainian town of Chernobyl was named). The Chernabog sequence of Fantasia included Night on Bald Mountain by the Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky, which was inspired by Walpurgisnacht, a Halloween-like pagan festival where dark spirits gather on Mount Triglaf in Ukraine, and on Brocken peak in Germany, which some hold to be Mussorgsky's true Bald Mountain. Brocken peak is the site of countless radio transmitters, spy stations and the world's first TV tower, which broadcast the Berlin Olympics, and was seized from the Nazis by US armed forces. The US army closed down its last remote-viewing programme, Stargate, in 1995, one year after a sci-fi film of the same name--featuring this military secret--was produced by MGM ... and so Brodsky's research goes on, flowing like a stream of consciousness through a multitude of obscure references.

The bulk of Brodsky's research manifests itself through three sets of drawings. The first consists of diagrams elaborating such connections as those outlined above. The second was produced using a crystal ball to divine scenes remote in either time or space. The third is made up of graphite drawings documenting elements of her research. Brodsky described how she used these last illustrations in an experiment: an electric charge was passed through the conductive graphite layer in the drawings and the frequencies produced were collected and then converted into a range of psychic brainwave signal clusters by inverse electroencephalographic equipment to be broadcast at non-audible frequencies and hence influence the thoughts of unwitting subjects. Brodsky states that 'the results of the HEXEN 2039 project are utilised by the British MoD in the development and delivery of a range of non-lethal weapons between 2040 and 2045'. Brodsky believes she is a time traveller.
