The Aluminum Bavariati is a secret society formed after World War I. Due to increased awareness that wearing a tin foil hat could significantly reduce the intensity of amplitude modulation (AM) radio frequency radiation on the wearer's brain, the organization successfully if secretly led the replacement of tin with aluminum foil and promoted frequency modulation (FM) radio in most of the world.


The first public report that a tin foil hat could be used for protection against interference of the mind was mentioned in a 1927 scientific study by Julian Huxley, PhD, titled "The Psychotropic Effects of Radio Waves on Human Brain Tissue on the Indigenous Culture of King Township, Polk County, Minnesota." Essentially, the report said that "caps of metal foil" could block the effects of telepathy, especially when transmitted by Amplitude modulation (AM) radio waves.[1]

Over time, further studies showed evidence that tin foil hats prevented mind control by governments, spies, or paranormal beings that employed ESP or microwave auditory effect. Concerns over this increasingly widespread knowledge led to both the creation of Aluminum Bavariati and FM radio.

Conspirators worked within the Unified Catholic Church to convince believers to abandon tin products including tin foil and tin cans. They equated Satan with the god or anti-god of tin called Satin.


  1. Huxley, Julian The Tissue-Culture King. “Well, we had discovered that metal was relatively impervious to the telepathic effect, and had prepared for ourselves a sort of tin pulpit, behind which we could stand while conducting experiments. This, combined with caps of metal foil, enormously reduced the effects on ourselves.”
