Sincere Best Wishes to All Researchers

Sonic Vest Company has much development work ahead, and except for posting new links to relevant resources on Facebook and Twitter, it will not be posting again on this website until after coding the first beta of “Antiphase CM.” Sincere best wishes to all researchers for successful development of your own universal countermeasure software. UPDATE: Effective July 18, 2018, Sonic Vest Company began routine posting only on Twitter.

Note to Researchers: Anthropology + Physics = “Auditory Cloud” Comprehension

Homo sapiens with cranial cavity of similar size to our own have inhabited the earth for nearly 200,000 years. To comprehend the “auditory cloud” it is necessary to study the anthropology of homo sapiens with regard to the ritual use of sound, especially with regard to sound production pertinent to ancient and modern aboriginal, pre-historical, and historical religion, including shamanism. Disdain rooted in hubris for the anthropological and historical record regarding ritual use of sound will dead-end your scientific research.
The “auditory cloud” is a quantum mechanical field of the brain, and any attempt to describe it semantically in the current lexicon of physics falls short. Even Albert Einstein resorted to “spooky action at a distance” to describe semantically the phenomenon known today as quantum entanglement. Perhaps, someday, an individual will labor to describe the “auditory cloud” mathematically. In the meantime, a preliminary semantic definition is all that can be offered.
To understand the “auditory cloud” it is best for the brain to “perceive” it in its benign form by listening to longstanding, polyphonic choral music compositions in a language other than your native language so that the texts (lyrics) are not distractive cognitively. A representative playlist selected from Spotify has been published for your consideration. Spend one hour in a quiet space, and allow the polyphonic sound to “wash over you.”
The phenomenon has been known mostly by many other names in countless languages since the dawn of the human species on Earth; therefore, researching the history of the phenomenon is not simply a matter of searching the literature for the phrase “auditory cloud.” Sadly, modern humans have weaponized an erstwhile, predominately benign phenomenon, and only modern humans in private enterprise will develop a universal countermeasure because governments are drawn to the weapon not the countermeasure.

“Antiphase CM” Countermeasure Development Commences

Sonic Vest Company announces commencement of development of “Antiphase CM,” the world’s first countermeasure for acoustic electromagnetic, including burst, radio frequency/microwave weapons, and sonic electromechanical weapons, including directional parametric weapons integrated into digital home assistant devices.

FBI Response to Sonic Vest Company eFOIA Request (See Post Dated March 4, 2018)

U.S. Department of Justice
Federal Bureau of Investigation
Washington, D.C. 20535

May 22, 2018

Edward J Harvilla, Esquire
Sonic Vest Company
[Address Redacted]

FOIPA Request No. [Redacted]

Subject: OTD Interim Report on Sonic Attacks in Cuba

Dear Mr. Harvilla:

This in response to your Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

The FBI can neither confirm nor deny the existence of records responsive to your request pursuant to FOIA exemptions (b)(1) and (b)(3) [5 U.S.C. 552 (b)(1) and (b)(3)]. The FBI is an intelligence agency as well as a law enforcement agency. In its capacity as an intelligence agency, the FBI compiles records while carrying out its responsibility to investigate threats to national security and gather foreign intelligence.

The nature of your request implicates records the FBI may or may not compile pursuant to its national security and foreign intelligence functions. Accordingly, the FBI cannot confirm or deny the existence of any records about your subject as the mere acknowledgement of such records existence or nonexistence would in and of itself trigger harm to national security interests per Exemption (b)(1) and/or reveal intelligence sources and methods per Exemption (b)(3); 50 U.S.C. 3024(i)(1).

It is unnecessary to adjudicate your request for a fee waiver, as no fees are being assessed.

For your information, Congress excluded three discrete categories of law enforcement and national security records from the requirements of the FOIA. See 5 U.S.C. 552(c) (2006 & Supp. IV (2010). This response is limited to those records that are subject to the requirements of the FOIA. This is a standard notification that is given to all our requesters and should not be taken as an indication that excluded records do, or do not, exist.

[Boilerplate FBI Contact, Appeal, and Dispute Resolution Paragraphs Redacted]

Sincerely yours,
[FBI Signer’s Name Redacted]

“Auditory Cloud” Preliminary Definition

Theoretically, an amalgamation of delocalized resonance electron clouds in an elastic lattice generated by vibratory microtubules in the neuronal cytoskeleton following entrainment of neural oscillations by patterned audible sound. Although initated by Newtonian patterned sound, the “auditory cloud” is a quantum mechanical field of the human brain that could induce transient, auditory, tactile and visual hallucinations either benign or malignant dependent primarily on the timbre of the sonic initiator. It is hypothesized that when initiated solely by patterned electromechanical sound as by a sonic weapon, the “auditory cloud” enters a hyperexcitable state, disrupting steady state electron-phonon dynamics in the lattice with disinclinations and dislocations in lattice topology, resulting macroscopically in neurological impairment by an unknown pathological mechanism.

Statement of Theoretical Causative Factor: Attacks on Cuba Diplomats of United States of America and Canada

Sonic Vest Company, hereby, publicly declares its theory of the causative factor with regard to the injury sustained by Cuba diplomats of the United States of America and Canada. As a matter of physics, the theoretical causative factor is an electromechanically weaponized, brain injurious variant of the natural, sonically-initiated, neurologically impairing phenomenon first mentioned in the historical record at 2 Chronicles 5: 12-14, which for research purposes, Sonic Vest Company dubs “2CHR5” but taxonomically refers to it as “ an auditory cloud.”

Sonic Vest Company, will develop a universal countermeasure against the sonic weapon initiators of the weaponized variant of the “auditory cloud” deployed against the diplomats of the United States of American and Canada that will render such weapons inert and useless in the interest of the preservation of the neurological wellbeing of all the world’s people.

Illegal IMSI Catchers Found In Washington D.C. Could be Used to Launch Telephonic Sonic Attacks Against Attorneys and Elected Officials with Minority Political Parties

On Saturday, March 10, 2018, a neighbor phoned me about the sudden death of a another neighbor, and shortly after I answered my cellphone, strange, high, multi-pitched, industrial, machine-like sounds blared from the handset. I suspect that an IMSI catcher was used to launch a telephonic sonic attack against me in retaliation for my work with Sonic Vest Company, which operates the only global clearinghouse for the collection and dissemination of information to researchers and the public relevant to the sonic attacks on the Cuba diplomats of Canada and the U.S.A. Intermittent tinnitus persists from the telephonic attack.

After reading, the comprehensive, Associated Press article titled “AP News Break: US Suspects cellphone spying devices in DC” it is my concern that the illegal IMSI catchers found in Washington, D.C. were placed by malefactors to launch future telephonic, sonic attacks against attorneys and elected officials with minority political parties. If you objectively consider the timing of the attacks on the Cuba diplomats of the U.S.A., which according to “Federal Times” began in November 2016, motive and opportunity, and the voluminous published information, the inescapable conclusion is that the attacks were launched by malefactors in support of Trump Administration foreign policy.

In addition to concern about the launching of future telephonic sonic attacks with IMSI catchers against attorneys and elected officials in Washington, D.C., I am also concerned that malefactors could launch a future sonic attack by co-opting the public address system in an indoor arena hosting a political conference or convention. Such a sonic attack could potentially permanently, neurologically injure or brain damage thousands of citizens, including many elected members of our nation’s political elite.

In light of the denial by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Scientists described in the April 3, 2018, post on this website, all Americans are “on their own” with regard to protection from sonic attacks until startup ventures like Sonic Vest Company and other private enterprises can develop and distribute effective countermeasures.

Time for Federal Bureau of Investigation Scientists to Get Their Heads Out of Their Butts RE: Injury to Cuba Diplomats of U.S.A.

The Associated Press (AP Online) article dated January 8-9, 2018, titled “ Tillerson tells AP Cuba still risky; FBI doubts sonic attack,” which is cited in Sonic Vest Company’s FOIA Request to the FBI filed February 27, 2018 (see March 4, 2018 post on this website) reads in pertinent part:

“Following months of investigation and four FBI trips to Havana, an interim report from the bureau’s Operational Technology Division says the probe has uncovered no evidence that sound waves could have damaged the Americans’ health, the AP has learned. The report, dated Jan. 4, doesn’t address other theories and says the FBI will keep investigating until it can show there’s been no intentional harm.”

“Shophar (Shofar) — The Scream”

“The Scream’s Effects”

“In January 2012, Physicians for Human Rights – Israel (PHR) filed
a request, in accordance with the Israeli Freedom of Information Law, to receive information from the Israeli military regarding the Scream. This request was filed following complaints from protesters who had been exposed to the Scream. Some of the reported side effects were dizziness, nausea, headaches, ataxia and a general sense of weakness. PHR (Physicians for Human Rights) based its request on two expert opinions, which stated that critical damage might be caused to people who are exposed to some of these devices, but since there are different types of devices it is necessary to verify the type of device used by the military and its characteristics. In addition, PHR (Physicians for Human Rights) wanted to verify whether a comprehensive analysis had been conducted regarding the physical effects that may be experienced by protesters exposed to the Scream – and particularly comparing between singular exposures to repeated exposures – and if so, what the results of such an analysis were.”

“After a three-month extension, on 22 April 2012 the Army Spokesperson’s Unit responded to PHR’s inquiry. The response did not include answers regarding the kind of device or its sound level, but rather only an assurance that the device had passed the required safety tests and that “it is not expected” to cause dizziness or pain in the eardrum or in other areas of the human body, nor is it expected to cause any effects beyond ‘discomfort or a nuisance.'”

“In May 2012 PHR (Physicians for Human Rights) sent another request, noting that the army’s previous response had been unsatisfactory and had not provided answers to the following questions:

A. What kind of sonic weapons are employed by the Israeli army?
B. What is the intensity of the sound, in decibels, and what are its
C. What is the maximum length of time during which a person is exposed to the device during a demonstration (minutes, seconds)?
D. What is the minimum distance required between the device and the
E. What are the operating and safety instruction for using the device?”

“In July 2012, the Israeli Army Spokesperson stated that according to information security bodies, providing answers to PHR’s request may harm the Scream’s operation.”

Additionally, disclosure is in the best interest of public health as can be confirmed by visiting because requester operates a global informational clearinghouse to collect, collate, and publicly publish with consent, any accounts or stories of injury sustained by anyone globally from auditory or sonic phenomena in the interest of the development of defensive countermeasures by medical and engineering researchers.”

Documentation Files: [Redacted]

Non-Individual FOIA Request
Request Information:

“Respectfully request production of the FBI Operational Technology Division, Interim Report, dated January 4, 2018, described in the second paragraph of the January 8, 2018, Associated Press (AP Online) article by Josh Lederman and Matthew Lee titled,’Tillerson tells AP Cuba still risky; FBI doubts sonic attack.’ (article text attached as .docx file)

Respectfully submitted,
Edward J Harvilla, Attorney-at-Law
PA Attorney ID 49425”


Expedite Reason:

“Firstly, the lack of expedited treatment could reasonably be expected to pose a threat to someone’s physical safety because according to the medical literature and popular media, the U.S. Government cannot explain the attack on Cuba diplomats of the United States of America. Nor does the U.S. Government currently have an effective deterrent or defensive countermeasure to similar attacks. Secondly, this FOIA request is made by a person primarily engaged in operating a public information clearinghouse to collect, collate, and publicly publish with consent, any accounts or stories of injury sustained by anyone globally from auditory or sonic phenomena in the interest of the development of defensive countermeasures by medical and
engineering researchers as can be confirmed by reviewing Thirdly, the subject of the request, namely auditory sonic phenomena is of widespread and exceptional media interest, and the information sought involves possible questions about the government’s integrity which affects public confidence as [can be] confirmed by searching the phrase ‘Cuba Diplomats’ on Google and reading the copious news stories questioning the accuracy, depth and management of the investigation of the auditory and sonic phenomena surrounding injury to the Cuba diplomats of the
United States of America.”
