Last year about mid March, Nick Sioma, 39, of Independence Township was just back from working in Hawaii and staying with his parents when he went outside for a cigarette.
“It was 3 a.m. and I couldn’t sleep,” Sioma remembered. “It was dead quiet, but I could hear a little crackle and see a subtle orange glow. I thought, I know what that is.”
He walked a few houses up Curtis Lane and saw the source – flames were coming from a home’s chimney flue. Sioma sprang into action.
“I called 911 and pounded on the door,” he said.
No one answered, and soon two Oakland County Sheriff’s deputies arrived. They entered the home and checked to make sure no one was there. While they were doing that, Sioma thought someone should do something about a truck parked in the driveway.
“I could hear fire trucks coming and the truck was right next to the house. It would be in the way. The keys were in it so I moved it,” he said. “It worked out. I’m glad no one was hurt.”
Luckily for the homeowners, who are still cleaning up after a fire that could have been much worse, it’s not unusual for Sioma to be up in the middle of the night. The Wi-Fi in his home wakes him up.
“Not just the blue light – I can feel heart palpitations when the Wi-Fi is on,” he said.
Over the summer, he learned about the rapidly expanding transmitter network for the upcoming 5G, fifth generation, telecommunications network.
“I was astounded at all the locations,” he said.
For network developers, 5G offers almost limitless possibilities.
Verizon says 5G will deliver speeds about 20 times faster than what is possible with the current 4G network, with nearly undetectable streaming lag times and data “moving so quickly it could bring about a Fourth Industrial Revolution,” with driverless cars, cloud-connected traffic control, virtual reality, and other applications depending on instant response and data analysis.
The promises of the telecommunication industry seem like something from a Philip K. Dick dystopian novel, Sioma said.
“They promise a utopia where everything talks to everything, but they’ll be able to glean even more minutia,” he said. “Creeping, smiley-faced fascism, where personal responsibility is all automated – it’s getting to that blurry line.”
Health is also an issue. He found more than 180 scientists and doctors from 35 countries signed a petition in 2017 recommending a moratorium on the roll-out of 5G for telecommunication “until potential hazards for human health and the environment have been fully investigated by scientists independent from industry.”
The new network would substantially increase exposure to radio frequency electromagnetic fields, which have been proven to be harmful for humans and the environment, they said.
“I’m concerned with the health of my fellow man,” Sioma said. “The body needs consistency, a stable framework. These constant pulses bombard the body, and with 5G, it will be immensely more.”

His concerns include the effects of spiking radio fields on egg and sperm development, bone loss, cancer, behavioral development , gut lining, brain blood barrier, and autism, and other issues like declining bee pollination, vaccine problems, and peanut allergies, he said.
“I’ve been learning about a lot of things,” he said. “It’s crazy, but legit. People are reluctant to believe there’s something deeper.”
International stories reveal a telcommunications war, with network hacking, sonic weapons being used on diplomats in Cuba, and tensions between China and the U.S., he said.
Sioma bought an EMF, electro magnetic frequency, meter about six months ago to check alternating-current magnetic, AC electric, and radio frequency/microwave fields in the area, and found spikes all over the area, from cell phone towers, smart meters that record and radio electricity and gas usage to DTE, cell phones in people’s pockets, and other sources.
He’s started making videos for Youtube under the name “Nobody Special.” In his first, “5G Rollout, public health experiment. Dangerous? Eyespy ep. 1: Oakland county Mi,” he cruises the Clarkston and Waterford areas noting the locations of new 5G boxes, and their signs warning radio frequency fields may exceed FCC limits for the general public.
“Sometimes we’re too reliant on corporations to provide quality of life,” he said. “Family and community are important. Real reality is important.”
Back in 1859, Sioma learned, the Carrington Event was a coronal mass ejection from the sun, hitting Earth’s magnetosphere and creating one of the largest geomagnetic storms recorded. The event 159 years ago knocked out telegraph lines throughout North America and Europe. Something similar today would devastate the world’s electronics, “blowing us back to the stone age,” he said.
“That would be a good thing,” he said. “It could help us regain our humanity.”

    On the one hand, I’m glad that there is someone out there concerned enough about our collective well-being to raise the issue of the potential adverse health effects of 5G, but on the other, the irony of the lead in to the story of was not lost on me. You know, that part about going out for a cigarette…
