Mind Games: New on the Internet: A community of people who believe the government is beaming voices into their minds. They may be crazy, but the Pentagon has pursued a weapon that can do just that.

I wrote a note to the author of this article to see if she were familiar with Jaynes. No reply as of yet, but what she reports strongly reminded me of bicamerality in the modern era. Anyone else?
