The discernible aim of torture as everyone believes--and rightly so--is to destroy the personality of an individual in a way that would render his compliance in future. But to destroy a personality is easier said than done. It requires long sessions of detention and torture. The torturers risk themselves getting exposed. The Human Rights groups are active all around the world. Ultimately the personality may not be destroyed much to the chagrin of the torturers, and an unexpected resilient rebounding may take place. Therefore, with the repertoire of modern knowledge, the strategy may well change in the 21st century. Discreet methods may be employed to selectively destroy areas in brain by high dosage and high frequency ultrasound. It is completely a non-invasive technique that does not leave its fingerprint for painful, later denials of subornation. Nevertheless the personality will change--from rightful aggression to slavish submission. The aim of this article is to put forward the theoretical perspective and cofounded projection of the darker and menacing side of ultrasound technology so that future generation could be saved from sin of omission.
