When the third season of "Stranger Things" was released in July, this science fiction drama began to hit major websites again. When the peaceful and beautiful life was broken by a monster from another dimension, people discovered that it was actually a failed product of human scientific experiments. So, where did this mysterious organization come from? Does such an organization really exist in real life?
What is Hawkins National Laboratory?
People have been exploring this mystery since the first season What is the origin of the organization, and why can he have such a strong background and backing? On the surface, Hawkins National Laboratory is an extension of the US Department of Energy, which means that it just borrows a real department to cover up This controversial scientific experiment department. But it is not just a false name. The U.S. Department of Energy did fund this experimental project. During the Cold War, the United States desperately needed to find a way that could defeat the Soviet Union in one blow. Way, so this and such a scientific experiment department was created. But this idea was not produced in the 1980s, but began to take shape after World War II. This department brings together the United StatesOutstanding elites in the academic, industrial, and military circles in China are to obtain the best experimental results. However, Hawkins National Laboratory’s experiments are not limited to human energy and space dimensions. Their experiments also involve nuclear physics, biological sciences, national security, neutron science, chemistry, and nuclear proliferation, so the requirements are very high. department. In order to ensure that this controversial experiment can be carried out in secret without being exposed, many heavily armed guards will be arranged to patrol around the national laboratory. That is to say, in the first season, we saw that this laboratory is heavily guarded. Not only is there grid protection on the periphery, there are also guards patrolling inside, and prosecution and surveillance are installed in every corner.
What kind of structure does Hawkins National Laboratory have?
Because Hawkins National Laboratory is A very mysterious organization, only a few high-level people know the existence of this laboratory and the purpose of its existence. Therefore, it must have a complete and strict confidentiality measure. Although the Hawkins National Laboratory is a huge building with at least six floors It is tall and distributed on four wings, but there are still an unknown number of basements, which are used for various experiments. Only the main employees of this building are qualified to stay in this building. In addition to that Outside, serving HuoThe staff of Kings National Laboratory is as many as 30,000, which is why tracking the small protagonists in "Stranger Things" can use the security personnel in the sky and underground. However, most employees are just ordinary members in the vast sea of people during their non-working hours. Even if only 10% of the staff can get salaries from the Haitian National Laboratory, they are very willing to participate in the research of this work, which is really strange. behavior.
What does Martin Brunner do?
At the beginning of the first season, the audience learned that Martin, the head of Hawkins National Laboratory ·Dr. Brunner came to this project directly from the neural control test project, and we can see that he personally participated in the various tests of 11. For decades, the real-life neural control test program has been a stain on the US government. Nerve The control experiment is a secret project run by the CIA from 1953 to 1973. It is also called the CIA Mind Control Project. Although this experiment has been questioned by morals, it is the most concerned experiment of the US government. One of the items.
And this experimental project includes: 1. Enhance perception and awareness to make patients age faster or slower, so The purpose is to make it produce reversible disease symptoms. This experiment will make the subjects less interested and willing to do things. 2. Neural control test items, from making people amnesia or making them unconscious, making soldiers more resistant Torture. One of the famous experiments is to implant brains in dogs, hoping to control their movements through nerves.
Who are the subjects?
From "Stranger Things" "We know that 11 is Terry IveThe daughter of Si. Ms. Ives is one of Dr. Brenner's test subjects. For unknown reasons, her daughter also possesses the same superpowers as hers, even more superpowers than hers. So Brenner and his team kidnapped 11 and raised her in the basement of Hawkins National Laboratory. And 11 also called Martin Brunner his father, this is to fill part of her emotions and to better control her. In addition to those who are born with superpowers, who else will Hawkins National Laboratory include? Such as patients with terminal cancer, drug users, prisoners, sex workers and other marginalized groups. Will be taken into consideration, because these people are marginalized people who are not noticed and cared about, and no one cares even if they disappear.
In 1973, the Watergate Incident was exposed because the CIA’s neural control experiment was exposed and its human rights violations would be The discovery led to the closure of the project and the destruction of all evidence that once existed. However, it is surprising that during the 1973 cleaning, thousands of documents were preserved because they were incorrectly archived in other documents. In the archives. From these limited resources, this inhumane experiment was exposed.
Even so, the Hawkins National Laboratory experiment may not be the real end. If the inhumane experiments of Hawkins Lab are deleted from the neural control test record, how many such labs still exist? What is their purpose? Perhaps this is what "Stranger Things" makes us reflect. There are a lot of interesting stories and massive unexposed pictures. If you like it, please follow me. Love is just one!
