Remote Viewing and Scientology

A download of material I have explained to people in private chat and posted bits of over the years, but never posted in total:

In Ingo Swann’s biography, at least in a version that was once on the web, he said
“I never considered myself a scientologist” He went on to explain that at that time they were trying anything and everything, including scientology, in an effort to catch up with the Russians..(note)

In 2008 I pulled a 2″ stack of papers from the National Archives, that were titled Stanford RV Protocols. I examined the documents carefully, and was unable to find anything even remotely scientological…nothing, zilch… Yes I was surprised.. but not as surprised as I might be had I not read a great deal about hypnosis.

It turned out that psychic events are routinely associated with hypnosis and induced trance states . One study, sorry I forgot the name, at a University, they attempted to hypnotize a person at a distance. The researchers noted strange effects , such as, on one occasion, instead of hypnotizing the intended target who was in an office at the end of the same hallway from the hypnotist, they found that they had hypnotized  a secretary in an adjacent office in line from where they were sitting.

I now believe that because scientology routines are create a suggestible hypnotic state, that Psi events might manifgst. However, this is not because of scientology, but because they are associated with hypnotism…and manifested in spite of scientology.

I also believe that there existed a plan,  to intentionally make scientology be perceived as a  useful tool for remote viewing, as a motive to insert covert intelligence gathering agents (those whose loyalties were controlled by scientology)  into foreign countries RV programs and perhaps to boobytrap those programs to be less effective, because it was the hypnosis not the scientology that “worked”, and in scientology, it is also the hypnosis that “works”.

In the book “Psychic Warrior” by an ex military RV guy, named David Morehouse, (Note2) he describes the protocols used at Ft Meade’s RV program, located across the Baltimore Washington Parkway from the NSA. His description of ‘cool down tapes” and more led me to conclude that he was using taped meditation protocols created by the same man that first coined the phrase “Out of Body Experience”, as “OBE:, Mr Robert Monroe. Robert Monroe founded the Monroe Institute in Faber Virginia outside of Charlottesville.  Monroe’s technology of binaural beats, emulates Tibetan meditation methods.  Meditation done while seated between two of those temple bells. The bells are tuned a few cycles per second different in frequency. When you site between the bells, and whack them both, you get the binuaral beat difference which apparently stimulates the same beat in brain wave frequencies. (Note3)  His technique provides what the Tibetan monks were seeking, when they would travel hundreds of miles from monastery to monastery to meditate in front of different sets of bells.. Using Monroe’s tapes one may do this without leaving your home!(Note 4)

Monroe’s tapes create trance. The more advanced tapes create the deepest trances. However, unlike conventional scientology, Robert Monroe was not a psychopath trying to steal your wallet like Hubbard. Which is why Hubbard, called the subconscious by both of the terms: Reactive Mind AND the Bank, because it made getting money out of your Bank account, easy. (note 5)

Robert Monroe uses some light suggestions and conditioning to make the experience safe, (yes Alice, there are things that go bump in the night) and most importantly, to return complete control of your trance, of your own sub-conscious to you and to you only. (note6)

Arnie Lerma

Note1: In Ingo’s published book, not the bio that I read online years ago,  he described a meeting with a deep state figure who asked him to RV a location on the moon. That man asked Ingo whether he had read Mastery, by George Leonard (Verbal and thinking Aikido) see http://www.lermanet.com/books/lermanet-library.htm

Note2: Morehouse recounts being gaslighted, targeted to an extent and beyond, that of being targeted by scientology. Some of what I endured is outlined HERE.
Morehouse felt forced to move overseas to escape it, thus, I believe his story has more veracity because he was targeted so vigorously.

Note3: See Secrets of the E-Meter

Note4: See Monroe Institute 

Note5: See Covert Methods used in Scientology

Note6:  I was introduced to Robert Monroe’s work by an ex-scientologist that I knew when I was a teen ager in the 1960’s  and was first fooled by Hubbard’s persuasion and covert hypnotic methods, as he was at the time. A gentle giant of a man named Joe Harrington. It was Joe that first posted the XENU story of OTIII and the rest of the OT Levels to the internet, anonymously using anonymous remailers. It was also Joe Harrington that mailed me the court record that got me sued in 1995 in Federal Court by scientology.  These tidbits are from his deathbed confession to his wife Brigitta, also an ex-scientologist,  who relayed them to me. I have probably done a couple thousand hours of Monroe’s hemi-sync and found it extremely useful for relaxation during the madness of the lawsuit, and the decades of strangeness that ensued after myself and two others refused a 9-12 million dollar offer from scientology in exchange for silence and sealing the documents of the cases..    Some ex-members, like Joe Harrington mentioned above, have found Monroe’s materials useful for recovery. The most important factor of meditation to recovery is described in this Quora answer.

“The New Word” by Allen Upward – Scientology (c) 1908

“In 1938 I codified certain axioms and phenomena into what I called ‘Scientology.’  said L Ron Hubbard in  the pre-1978 Red “Tech” Volumes on page 3.


1908-scientology

“This is not science, but only scientology. It is language. It is the magic lullabye in which the shapes of things melt and reshape themselves forever”

“And unhappily, Scientology is often mistaken for science as theology is for worship”

“We distinguished between science and scientology”

First use of the word 'Scientology' in Print Anywhere!

The New Word
by Allen Upward

(corresponding memeber of the Parnassus Philological Society, Athens)

1908 London - Second Edition (First Edition was published 
anonymously - this listed edition was the first one published under Allen Upward's name)

320 pages

Aside from being a very fascinating book in its own rite, 
this book contains the first coining of the word 'Scientology' 
in print.  Allen Upward was quite the wordsmith and if 
you read him you will see that he is always creatively 
coining words to fit his meaning.  That L. Ron Hubbard 
used the word 'Scientology' for his practical religious 
philosophy in 1952 is what really makes this book 
interesting.  L. Ron Hubbard was always coining a word 
or two himself to make his work easier to understand.  
 There are three usages of 
'Scientology' in this book and they occur on pages 139, 149 & 156.

Contents:

   1. The Riddle
   2. Psychology: The Personal Equation
   3. Etymology: The Castle in the Air
   4. Lexicography: The Play upon words
   5. Metaphysics: The house of cards
   6. Altruism: The Face in the looking-glass
   7. Materialism: the shape
   8. Physics: the knot
   9. Dynamics: the demon in the stone
  10. Chemistry: the man in the crumb
  11. Mathematics: the conjuring trick
  12. Logic: the cipher
  13. Ontology: the end
  14. Metastrophe: the magic crystal
  15. Biology: the elf
  16. Theology: the painted window
  17. Exegetics: the forbidden fruit
  18. Pathology: the pyramid
  19. Astrology: the eclipse
  20. Ethics: the book of etiquette
  21. The Heir
Please see picture - this is my only copy of this rare 1908  
second edition from England 
- I have never run across another copy of this edition.

================

The first use of the word scientology, as used in 1908, is to have the meaning of pseudo-science.

If you believe in Hubbard, here is one more proof that man never had an original idea in his life.

On Dec 5th 1995, in RTC vs Lerma, scientology lost it’s trade secret claims in US Federal Court.  I wish we had this book back then. The good thing is that those coming after we early warriors, now have it.

Perhaps it is time to learn the definition of fraud from Black’s Law Dictionary:

Fraud: An intentional perversion of the truth for the purpose of inducing another in reliance upon it to part with some valuable thing or to surrender a legal right; a false representation of a matter of fact, whether by words ot conduct, by false or misleading allegations, or by concealment of that which should have been disclosed, which deceives and is intended to deceive another so that he shall act upon it to his legal inquiry; anything calculated to deceive, whether by a single act or combination, or by suppression of truth, or suggestion of what is false, whether it be by direct falsehood or innuendo, by speech or silence, word of mouth, or look or gesture; fraud comprises all acts, omissions, and concealments involving a branch of legal or equitable duty and resulting in damage to another.

Sidebar: In his book Complicity: Ethics and Law for a Collective Age, Christopher Kutz suggests that marginally effective participants in a collective harm are accountable for the victim’s suffering, “not because of the individual differences they make, but because their intentional participation in a collective endeavour directly links them to the consequences of that endeavour.”

 

Authority Hypnosis

“The best place to hide something is in plain sight” a CIA Maxim

AUTHORITY HYPNOSIS

This describes one of Hubbard’s most used methods of hypnotic suggestion. A method that clinicians avoid because it’s use creates dependency upon the operator. Authority suggestion is WHY Hubbard had an “LRH Comm” Network to protect his “image”..

He was protecting his “authority” as the “operator” of your trace.

From a 1918 (c) “Suggestion and AutoSuggestion” by William Atkinson.

AUTHORITY SUGGESTION

Suggestions are accepted by persons when given by one or more of three general methods. These methods, you will remember, are:

(1) Suggestion by impression, as by authoritative statements, etc;

(2) Suggestion by inducing the idea in the mind, by insinuation, hint, and other indirect means; and

(3) Suggestion along the lines of association of outward objects, etc, which act both by impressing and inducing the idea in the receptive mind of the person so suggested to.

The suggestions may be considered as being caused by suggestion reaching the individual along several different lines, or channels. For convenience we may divide these channels of suggestion into five classes, viz:

I. The Suggestion of Authority;
II. The Suggestion of Association;
III. The Suggestion of Habit;
IV. The Suggestion of Repetition;
V. The Suggestion of Imitation.

Extracted from: (c) 1918 William Atkinson, “Suggestion and Autosuggestion”
==============


Hubbard’s 2nd most used method was Ad-Hominem, known as demonization… the rarity of discussion of these two by those who have nothing of substance of their own, like Hubbard, is because they have so much to gain by using them.They “work” so well at controlling thinking. Those that use them to deceive would then be revealing themselves..

From The Anderson Report: “Because of the serious risk of harm to the patient, it is only in rare and exceptional circumstances that authoritative hypnosis is resorted to in medical practice.”

“Contrary to general belief, it has been my experience that the more intelligent the subject, the easier it is to induce hypnosis. It is not a sign of a weak character to go quickly into a hypnotic state. Hypnosis is not a struggle or battle of the wills, but a matter of co-operation between two people. Children under three, morons and completely insane people—those, in fact, who cannot consciously co-operate with the hypnotist—are not hypnotisable at all”  Ralph Slater, stage hypnotist, played Carnegie Hall from his book, which you can download HERE. (100 meg image pdf of his 1950 booklet on hypnotism)

===============

Common Core –  After examining a students “common core” textbooks, I had no choice but to assume that the  real intent of common core is to create students who no longer trust themselves.  If you lose trust in your ability to reason you tend to seek out “authority” to consult. I have noted this conditioned dependence upon authority in the recent escapees from Scientology. Not so much in the old timers who were in when Hubbard ran the fraud, but  under the Miscavige regime.

One old friend began relying upon academics, another ex, not a friend, upon published science.  If either of these sources had it  all right we would not have the problem of mind control to deal with in the first place.  And we would not have war. The lesson both miss is than money and politics affects both spheres.  The book “Political Ponerology” reveals this fact.

The ultimate “Authority self hypnosis” for some  people is their concept of “god”. This idea is a self re-enforcing, with positive feedback, auto-self-hypnotic-suggestion machine. You imagine an omnipotent being then repeatedly feed this infinitely powerful and knowing, mental construct what you wish to have exist. Actually it is quite a clever idea for focusing one’s intention.
Too bad this secret to why “it works’ is not explained to people at the same time.
Another secret is revealed here: Some advice from Confucious

Historical Perspective:

“The” problem  is described by ponerology.  Ponerology is the study of psychopathy in group, corporate, and institutional settings.

The very short thumbnail description is that history is written by the victors. But this does not restart thinking as well as  a deeper view of this, which is that “facts”, history,  as well as psychological insights and science, that aid or support and empower the ruling class,  the king, tend to get published. In history it will be those academics, philosophers, psychologists, whose writings make exploitation acceptable,  get tenure. Ideas that aid in control are supported, this includes the editorializing of the Bible at the conference of Nicea.

whose insights tend to support and empower the peasants, as in you and I… get demonized. They are called revolutionaries. They get labeled, dehumanized, ostracized,  and their writings are burned first, hidden from view becoming harder to find, Orwellian style.

Consider this: “The Vatican Secret Archives have been estimated to contain 85 kilometres (53 mi) of shelving”

What Orwell describes in 1984 AND Animal Farm, has been going on since the beginning of time…

“the destroyed works are irreplaceable and their burning constitutes a severe loss to cultural heritage. Examples include the burning of books and burying of scholars under China’s Qin Dynasty (213-210 BC), the obliteration of the Library of Baghdad (1258), the destruction of Aztec codices by Itzcoatl (1430s), the burning of Maya codices on the order of bishop Diego de Landa (1562).” Wiki

There are many other ways, rather than burning books, to control knowledge. These are part of the subject called ponerology.

ponerology.com

One example: The inspirer  for the 1st America Revolution, Thomas Paine, was thoroughly demonized in the decades that followed. At one point effigies of Tom Paine were burned at the stake around the time of the Whiskey Rebellion and the war of 1812.

Thomas Paine, in 1766 lived on the north side of London, and read John Wilkes’ screeds published in his “The North Briton”

It was issue# number 45 of the North Briton that introduced the concept that

A man is a sovereign unto himself and might only be ruled by his own consent.

The KING being THE sovereign, imprisoned him in the tower of london..and sued for libel. The peasants, the townsfolk of London, marched for three days by pitchfork and at night by torchlight, growing more and more unruly as well as intoxicated…until after three days and nights of this. the King released to keep order. John Wilkes fled to France under protection of the French Ambassador.

John Wilkes is why there is a town in Pennsylvania called Wilkesbarre,

The PROOF of my assertion that the problem is one of ponerology, is this question:

Why are these FACTS not widely known by every man?

The answer backs up my assertion of ponerology, which is that such ideas interfere with the ability of the ruling class to manage those whom they believe they own.

David Miscavige & the King of the Gypsies

When dealing with elaborate frauds, context is everything. Those new to my screeds should google Arnie Lerma +xenu and read for a while to provide context. At minimum you need to have read these two articles one in the Washington Post, the other NY Newsday  for this blog entry to have proper context.  Christmas Day article 1994 LINK,  and the August Raid LINK

southpark-volcano

It was winter 1996/1997, I’d had a lot of publicity from RTC vs Lerma, the Federal case that authenticated “XENU” as the real deal…

A gentlemen called and said he was a journalist from Canada and just happened to be in town and wanted to meet with me, after he had read about my efforts in the newspaper and wanted to speak to me. I said “fine” as I was most curious and I enjoy meeting and talking with intelligent and/or extraordinary character, and as I had met with dozens of journalists by now and we agreed to meet at a Gin Mill on the west side of 19th street NW between M Street and K Street in the club district south of Dupont Circle.

I walked in and saw a fellow sitting alone at a table for two, and he looked up, saw me and waved me over.

The King of the Gypsies”

He introduced himself, saying his name was Ian Hancock, this Ian Hancock.

He introduced himself and said he was considered by some to be “The King of the Gypsies” He told me that President Bill Clinton had made him an honorary ambassador to the United Nations for the Romani in America, and had given him a nice plaque to hang on the wall. At the time I thought this was rather impressive, as if to convey that his words had a certain authority.  I had previously met with party leaders of Germany’s Parliament including Rennate Rennabach ans Ursurla Caberta at the Freidrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation to advise them on how to best deal with the Scientology problem, tried my hand at lobbying on Capitol Hill for the anti-scientology cause, and being born and raised in Washington DC met my share of VIPs. My electronics business had serviced the needs of Wonderman, and the Crown Prince of Iran, so perhaps I was not quite as impressed with this gentleman’s authority as others might have been,..  anyway, back to this strange tale.

Mr Ian Hancock then told me a story:

The Death of John McMaster

He said was in the U.K. and had interviewed a once famous celebrity $cientologist named John McMaster* .  Jon McMaster was a dapper and eloquent charismatic speaker in the Scientology movement in the 1960’s.

Mr Hancock said that he interviewed John McMaster in a “Manchester flop house” shortly before he passed away.  He claimed that Mr McMaster told him that when he was St Hill Manor, that Hubbard would taunt him about  being gay, and on one occassion when Hubbard knocked on his door, Hubbard was standing the naked, wearing stockings and a garter belt, and pranced around the room after he came in. Quite a story, I was somewhat awed.

After describing details in this incident in lurid detail  he then described the death bed scene:

“John McMaster lay in his bed dying, his room was filled with dead flowers.”

Then,  Mr Hancock  said that it would better if I criticized L. Ron Hubbard instead of David Miscavige.(see note3)  As the conversation continued he restated the general idea that it would be better to be critical of “Ron” instead of “Miscavige”.  After each restatement he would pause, and I noted he seemed to be watching me intently, and he would say:

“BECAUSE DEAD MEN CAN’T SUE”

11not_scared_of_you18

The implication was unmistakable: I can’t be sued by Hubbard for saying he was a rat-bastard because he is dead, but I could be sued by David Miscavige.

It was apparent to me that he was chatting me up on behalf of David Miscavige(see note2).. leaning on me to not criticize Mr Miscavige, and instead criticize Mr. Hubbard. And using some kind of persuasion techniques to accomplish this. At the time of this meeting I had not yet begun my research into covert methods of persuasion(Note2), all I knew was that this was a strange meeting.

Why was “The King of the Gypsies” being a water boy for David Miscavige?

And.. just how deep does this particular rabbit hole go??

_________________________________________________________


Note:  Hubbard was the Founder of scientology and David Miscavige used despicable means to take complete control of the scientology corporate structure after Hubbard’s death in 1986. Here is ONE example Hubbard appointed a gal to be the Director of CST, for LIFE. CST is the corporate structure that owns the copyrights and licenses them to the local scientology organizations for a commission fee on their income. Scientologists will note that the copyright notice in their books says “Copyright held by RTC”  held.. not Owned.. CST OWNS them. CST is the big kahuna of the Scientology empire of lies.

This gal had lifetime dream. Her dream job was to manage a horse farm in New Zealand. Well wouldn’t you know,  David Miscavige knew about this girls dream, and arranged everything. To the gal it was a serendipitous opportunity, perhaps a gift from God, when a man she had chanced to cross paths with said that he needed a manager for his beautiful horse farm in New Zealand. The girl then did what any normal person would do, she jumped at this opportunity. Giving up her appointment from L Ron Hubbard himself, as The Director for LIFE of CST.

With the Hubbard appointed-for-life director out of the way, David Miscavige was free to move in… Source: Ex Scientology Office of Special Affairs lawyer Joseph Vannier’s book “Arrows in the Dark”

Consider the efforts taken to demonize him, and implication of the details above…
see image halfway down this page LINK

Note2: Those who have read my other pages may recognize that The King of the Gypsies was trying to hypnotize me…giving me a direct suggestion, to not criticize David Miscavige.

He combined story telling, with AUTHORITATIVE SUGGESTION, HEAVY EMOTIONAL CONTENT, REPETITION,  DIRECT SUGGESTION, – the Shock and Awe method

The name of the METHOD I believe might have been leaked by George Bush..as he likely had been shown the method, then said it on TV, It is called Shock and Awe.

Then you tell him an enormous TRUTH… such as, there is a breakaway ‘civilization’ and the US has a colony on Mars and those black triangles are US, using anti gravity. Then you show him some pictures… Staff lists… etc..

-or- the world is going to end in 180 days… or three buildings were destroyed in Manhattan by terrorists….

At this point thinking has been stopped, he is in shock and awe!

When thinking stops the door to the subconscious is left unguarded..

Then you tell him the suggestion you want him to believe to be true.

“Anything said to a hypnotized subject is true for them” said the father of weaponized hypnosis, Dr. George Estabrooks in 1943

===

Incidentally, this was also one of the techniques Hubbard used for OT level III… Xenu and the Wall of Fire…

Note3:  When David Miscavige was first in the CMO, Commodores Messenger Organization, he was young, short, and had and still has asthma. He would lean against the railing, cupping his hands to hide his use of an inhaler. At that time Suzette Hubbard was the CMO boss, and she gave him the nickname “The Asthmatic Dwarf” which is what was referred to with derision behind his back.  The phrase is (c) Suzette Hubbard.

It has been noted that before his rise to power, that David Miscavige appeared to have some sort of influence with Hubbard, the bottom of this page just might explain why. LINK

Thank you for reading all the way to the end, in this tl:dr age, it is encouraging. There is an enormous amount of data that must be read and thoroughly digested to grasp the enormity of the fraud called Scientology, as well as the implications. please send this link to recovering scientologists both as a chuckle and insight into just how far the Asthmatic Dwarf’s Empire will go to get what they want, and make your dreams come true.

Introduction to hypnosis as a weapon

“Truth would quickly cease to be stranger than fiction,
once we got as used to it.”
–H.L. Mencken.

Take a person of note, imagine that the events of their life are displayed in a montage.
Then imagine a magnifying glass held in a hand. The hand moves the magnifying glass from life incident to life incident, from selected detail to detail.
If the magnifying glass only shows you what the person is like, after they stubbed their toe or stepped on a nail, or were purposely goaded into anger, then you might think that person were a nasty fellow.
If the magnifying glass only displays moments when the person looked good and attractive, this too would affect your judgment of that person’s worth.
This is how the media controls your perceptions of others..

Now Google “The CIA The Mighty Wurlitzer”

That is the hand. 

(In the case of critics of Scientology, their intelligence branch called “OSA” and their minions would be the hand.)


Another overview for those unfamiliar with my material
MIND CONTROL THEORIES IN MASS MEDIA   LINK

Case example:  Alledged Russian meddling in US Election

NBC News aired a clip as “news” but OMITTED some hard truths they did not want the American Public to see. Here is the full clip:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=471&v=qWGPwm-D_Qw

This caper reminds me of an operative, Ms G,  who convinced a friend (whose memory is not quite as good as it once was and in fact this operative was my inspiration for research in this sordid subject called covert persuasion) named Jessie Prince who then told Nancy Many, a very old friend I worked with while in the cult,  that this writer was involved in sit-down settlement meetings regarding Lawrence Wollersheim with scientology’s cia called OSA. This one false allegation cost me the friendship of that very old friend.. whom I love dearly, who then distrusted me after hearing this  emotionally charged “story”,  thinking there just might be something to it.   When Mr Prince was questioned about this by my wife he claimed he did not recall who told him, then claimed that he had a document to support it and then claimed he would look for it and then, in the end,  said he could not find it.

Nor could he find the courage to apologize for the damage done.  But I understand why there is no apology, having learned that the father of weaponized suggestion for OSS, Dr George Estabrooks stated in 1943 that “Everything said to a hypnotized subject is true for them”

Perspective is Everything

The late Theosophist, British Annie Besant (1847-1933) has this to say about the dangers of hypnosis as regards its use, particularly in the West:

“The use of … hypnotism is surrounded by danger. The publicity which attends on all scientific discoveries in the West has scattered broadcast knowledge which places within the reach of the criminally-disposed powers of the most terrible character, which may be used for the most damnable purposes. No good man or woman will use these powers, if he finds that he possesses them, save when he utilizes them purely for human service, without personal end in view, and when he is very sure that he is not by their means usurping control over the will and the actions of another human being. Unhappily the use of these forces is as open to the bad as to the good, and they may be, and are being, used to most nefarious ends.” —Annie Besant, “The Seven Principles of Man” (c. 1899), page 77-78. (Thanks to Fred Haseney for finding this one)

The following is an introduction done as a series of comments on THIS site on the 10th of October. Each time I try to explain this material, I get a little better at it…bear with me.


“From 80 to 90% of the population can be hypnotized to varying degrees…At least 5% (10,000,000) of the U.S. population is extraordinarily hypnotizable, so easily hypnotizable that they are in a constant state of exaggerated suggestibility, even when awake and going about their normal daily routine. They are at the total mercy of all forms of influences and can easily be persuaded to do things and afterward have no idea why they did them…”
Dr. Tobias H. Brocher, Director, Center for Applied Behavioral Sciences, Menninger Foundation, Topeka, KS. 1952

“Contrary to general belief, it has been my experience that the more intelligent the subject, the easier it is to induce hypnosis” Ralph Slater, 1950 Stage Hypnotist, played Carnegie Hall

The old hypnotists express this observation above, claiming this was because intelligent people are able to control their minds better.  This gives hope  to those who have been told they are not so bright because, perhaps all they need to do is to learn to control their thinking better. The word that comes to my mind being ‘discipline’.

Now, if anyone doubts that the public at large can almost all be controlled, compare what most believe the Vietnam War was about with what I have found the truth to be:

Vietnam’s George Washington

Ho Chi Minh was a baker at an upscale NY hotel who worked his way through US university. He loved the USA. During WWII, he and the Vietnamese were provided weapons by the allies. They fought against the Japanese in WWII. On Armistice day, Ho was driving a US Jeep, with American Flags on the corner, with a loudspeaker playing the Star Spangled Banner as he drove all over Hanoi
,

When the Allies “gave” Vietnam “French Indochine” back to the French colonizers, it broke his heart. Unable to get weapons and replacement parts for his US made weapons now used for a battle of Liberation from French Colonialism, he had no other choice, so he turned to the Chinese..


In the May 1959 edition of the Journal of the Atomic Scientists, Dr Robbert Oppenhiemer remarked that the advances in the field of psychology to control what a man believes to be true made the challenges faced by the atomic scientists seem trivial.

Dr. Oppenhiemer used the word trivial

Observe that Americans have not successfully stopped the US Military Industrial War Machine since Vietnam because of the effectiveness of these methods.

The father of American Psychological Warfare,  was psychologist and hypnotist Dr George Estabrooks. He worked for OSS in 1943 (OSS later became the CIA / DIA ) He stated in 1943 that “Anything said to a hypnotized subject is true for them” He also noted that these covert methods of hypnosis and suggestion would only continue to be effective until their targets become familiar with the methods being used upon them.

If a man, immersed in a society where these methods are in play were to learn just one of these METHODS, then to a degree the truth would become a bit more easily visible.

Here is ONE Method. Most are familiar with Goebbels “Big Lie”, and several restatements remarking upon the effectiveness of the Big Lie, but never before in my 60 years have I encountered an explanation such as this one that explains how and why the Big Lie “works” its magic.

The Reverse Blockade

“Reverse Blockade: emphatically insisting upon something which is the opposite of the truth blocks the average person’s mind from perceiving the truth. In accordance with the dictates of healthy common sense, he starts searching for meaning in the “golden mean” between truth and its opposite, winding up with some satisfactory counterfeit. People who think like this do not realize that this effect is precisely the intent of the person who subjects them to this method. ” page 104, Political Ponerology by Andrew M. Lobaczewski
More about this here: https://arnielerma.wordpress.com/2015/10/07/the-master-manipulator/

————

Another METHOD:

When thinking is induced to stop by any means, the door to your subconscious is left unguarded, and anything stated to you during this time is to some degree hypnotic, acting as a direct suggestion to the subconscious.

This was and is what George Bush was referring to as “Shock and Awe”, and is the METHOD, combined with the BIG LIE above, that was used to do 911.

I have learned these strange lessons by a tortuous path, through being hypnotized into joining a cult, scientology, and then spending decades trying to learn how the trick was done. However the lessons gained apply to how we might end conflict in general.

“War is the greatest injustice. We are not fighting the culprits. Those who pay, who incite, who use the media to make people turn against each other – this is who we should fight against.” – Alexey Mozgovoy, commander of the “Ghost” brigade, killed May 23, 2015

You can read the first half of George Estabrook’s 1943 book “HYPNOTISM” here for free (at my expense, I thought it important enough to spend my time and money to web this) :

Various METHODS that I have isolated are described on my blog pages.

Thank you for your important contribution to our understanding of mind control techniques.

Anyone with a passing interest in psychology is/should be aware that it can work for both good and evil and many early mass experiments were conducted

Yes, you are correct, In the 50’s my family doctor in Washington DC, who made house calls, wore a tweed jacket and bow tie. The AMA (American Medical Society) told doctors to wear a white lab coat, because it gave them more authority.Authority hypnosis works well for good however clinical practitioners of hypnosis are warned NOT to use it because it creates psychological dependency.

This feature is, of course, exploited.

I believe that these (and other) methods, which I learned deconstructing a cult which uses them to induce a normal human being to end up believing all sorts of silly things including about an evil alien warlord named XENU and that your body is infested with space cooties are the same METHODS being used to create terrorists. Only the shore story and stage setting are different.

Of course the use of CAPTAGON helps a great deal also. Anything that damages the areas of the brain associated with conscience or violent reaction would be helpful if you wanted to create terrorists. Incidentally, the area of the brain just above and behind your ear, is where the violence response lives…. and cell telephones irradiate this area.

His statement frames the problem of war in a manner giving perspective to life itself and reminded me of a quote I crafted and reposted to try to help Americans think past the emotional keys being played upon the “The Mighty Wurlitzer” of controlled and choreographed media and false flags.

“Those who think own us,
keep us at each other’s throats,
to prevent our uniting at theirs.”

False flags in America go back to the US Civil War, when the head of the notorious KKK  actually dissolved the organization, after Yankee infiltrators choregraphed the ugly atrocities that were then successfully used to enrage the northerners to support the US Civil War in 1860. And this was all done for THE PROFIT.

Democracy is a stage setting for fascists, when what the public believe true is controlled by a handful of oligarchs behind closed doors.

And we are running out time.

@ Arnie

bummer, lost my post, continuing…

… during the first decades of TV transmission in Yankland hidden subliminal messages were presented in normal programming glorifying the USA and its government. Don’t know whether it is still practised, but I guess there are nowadays more efficient means to produce identical results.

In my studies on the subject in late 1970s I came across the most blatant use of TV broadcasts for mass indoctrination: to convince the Samoans to agree to become an administrative territory of the US. A referendum had been conducted, apparently supervised by the UN, and they rejected any association with the US. No problem; very soon the islanders saw TV come to them and receivers freely given away. After an adequate time for the message to sink in another referendum was held and, surprise surprise, the Samoans saw how democracy works and voted yes.

If you follow my links you would have come to the article from which I quote Dr Robert Oppenhiemer. That article is about those subliminal advertisements.

The Ethics of Tachistocopy” in the May 1959 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists..

The man who wrote it is an interesting character:

“This was for many psychologists, a most sobering observation. The possibility of controlling human behavior becomes a more terrifying prospect than the control of nuclear reactions”

And note who this gentlemen represents:

Arthur (Art) J. Bachrach (born March 20, 1923 – December 19, 2011) was an American psychologist and administrator, who was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychology at Arizona State University, and Director of the Environmental Stress Program and Chair of Psychophysiology at the Naval Medical Research Institute at the Naval Medical Center in Bethesda.

Good thing Milton Erickson never got together with Estabrooks! Then we would all be in trouble. Dr Erickson could put a member in the audience under a deep trance without looking at them or mentioning them, just after the person asked a question. Some people are ethical and some are not.

Arnie Lerma on October 11, 2016 · at 5:44 pm UTC

Well, perhaps as troubling, in the book “The Letters of Milton Erickson” is correspondence between Dr Erickson and Dr Stanley Milgram!

In those letters they refer to that work we did for the government.

This should concern you as much or more than what you posited!

George Estabrooks ghost wrote a little novel in 1947, supposedly a fiction work, titled “Death in the Mind” It was about the creation of spies using hypnosis. My gut feeling after putting this one down (in almost a cold sweat) was this ‘fiction’ work was Dr Estabrook’s effort to relieve a guilty conscience for the work he did for OSS. I believe it was his effort to warn us. Some of these supposed crazed lone gunmen shooters come to mind…

Another mind blowing factoid… ALL the old hypnotists remark in their own words that intelligent people make the best hypnotic subjects. They nearly all also mention that they believed this was due to the fact that intelligent people were able to control their minds better.

=====

Another METHOD, is repetition, however, like the big lie above, everyone knows that repetition works but no one explains WHY repetition works. What you will find out also manifests in crowds. I find this view elegant and simple compared to Le Bon’s work “The Crowd” . LINK to The secret of repetition

Additional reference materials and entire books can be found HERE

Dr Joost Meerloo’s book Rape of the Mind, as well as Delusion and Mass Delusion can be found HERE.

In 1997, in a FOIA lawsuit, the CIA Interrogation Manual was declassified. Having spent considerable time scanning and webbing ,Dr Meerloo’s “Rape of the Mind” ten years prior, I was stunned to find Rape of the Mind listed in a footnote in the KUBARK Interrogation Manual. (Kubark is a word substitution cipher for the CIA, one of many)

The footnote read… that interrogators would benefit by getting know their own minds better. And there it was! Joost Meerloo’s Rape of the Mind! A book written by a Swedish Psychiatrist and M.D. who was detained in Holland during the Nazi occupation and released during a jail break through the efforts of the French Resistance’!. The book is what he learned during the NAZI occupation. The psychology of totalism.

Another METHOD is revealed on page 45 of that manual, called The Confusion Technique, I have two pages about that method HERE but the Kubark version is easier to understand.

Yes. Did they do the experiment to expose the sorry condition of the US people and mind control or to explore it further for use by the state? The thought occurred to me yesterday when I read the original post.
It reminded me of bizarre events like Laura Bush saying her favorite ‘book’ [sic] was The Legend of the Grand Inquisitor. I immediately thought: Did she take the side of the silent Christ or of the Grand Inquisitor? (Dostoyevsky foresaw the coming birth of the foul Leo Strauss and others like him).
This post of yours has helped me confirm my hunch about Laura’s choice.

Thank you.
1) I wish someone had explained this to me a half century ago.
(Would I have listened?)

2) I wish someone would explain this better. The problem I have encountered that several times I have sat down and explained all of this to a person. It tends to destabilize them. It is better parceled out by the shot glass instead of a shower. Too much washes way false belief systems, and the stability they provide a spirit, a spirit that is a finger of god. Maybe a comic book for kids? Something like that. And I have more.

Re Milgram

I did not go in that direction, as Milgram’s material scares the poop out of those capable of understanding it, and he explains it better than I ever could, and with authority. I wanted to know how a certain operative destroyed my best friend, millionaire Robert Minton, and why an innocent simple man, named Shawn Lonsdale, who was trying to give his life meaning, ended up supposedly committing suicide.

I_Hate_Co$

Arnie,

This is brilliant, and thank you so much sharing. I just recently re-joined this community, although I was never really IN it before because I stayed on the edges of Co$ the last 5 years just hoping my ex-wife would wake up one day and for the sake of our son, we could leave this nightmare behind. Sadly, it hasn’t happened, but everyone here has been extremely helpful and encouraging and my hope is that with our persistent efforts to keep people coming forward, within 5 years I just might have a chance of giving my son a family again. It’s a pipe dream, but it keeps me going.

Your website gave me the courage to recently get back a sum of money from the Co$ by doing what I had to to get it, rather than being afraid of a fair game retaliation

Thanks for everything you’ve done. Your efforts do not go unnoticed and I sincerely appreciate your sacrifices.

Hi Arnie,

Arnie Lerma, this is compelling research. Thanks for bringing forward this awareness of Erickson and the NLP connection. It is astonishing to remember the number of intelligent people taken in by this simple technique. I can see the connection in my personal experience; only the words and labels for each ‘grade’ were different, giving people some distraction to focus upon while the underlying hypnotic control did its damage. One technique, learned and applied consistently. Hans Hansen

Thanks Arnie. Yours was one of the first websites I visited when I finally left. I had a memory of forwarding a postcard with the word “lermanet” on it to OSA when I was on post. I figured that was as good a place as any to start.

When I first saw these stages I thought maybe not everyone goes through ALL the stages. I could see getting through a few of them. But before long, I found myself experiencing each of them and ALL of them.

It all sure looks different from the outside………….

I made it all the way to OTVIII with nothing to show for it~~I wanted the abilities gained that were on the grade chart in the 70’s!!!

Dear Mr Lerma, I am the person Tory Magoo referred to in her video a few days ago and would like to sincerely thank you for the lermanet site and feel that without it I might never have realized that Dianetics and Scientology are false fraudulent subjects and an insidious extreme form of coercive persuasion, after 25 years in the cult with your help (by providing your site) I have been able to come out of it and perceive the practices as hypnotic mind control and realized that I (unknowingly) was in a terrorist cult that has numerous brutal , inhuman crimes and abuses against its members and critics. I would love to get to talk to you both to thank you and share some info on some of the damaging, and I believe not yet generally exposed, details of how the con works.

CONVERSATIONS WITH ARNIE…

I have been fortunate enough to have had the opportunity to have several long conversations ( online) with Arnie Lerma . I have read quite a bit on Lermanet.com and seen him on videos as well . I will never try to have 100% agreement with ANYONE ever again after leaving Scientology and learning that individuality should not submit TOTALLY to authority absolutely EVER .

I do agree with Arnie on a great many things and respect his beliefs and privacy regarding such . I think we are in a very small group (that I hope to expand by education) – that hold certain ideas about the nature of and effects caused by Scientology indoctrination .

I know he is very probably the smartest person ( in overall intelligence ) and most well educated about Scientology as both to the history ( including tactics ) and technology ( as to the true nature and harm it causes ) that I have EVER got to know .

I have met a few bright people and- no offense to anybody else – he blows away all the rest – by a lot .

I know some might think this is just because we follow a similar group of theories about the technology (and Hub) and Arnie has helped me countless times and was instrumental in my exit-counseling BUT even seeing all that – I still can not deny that what I see is what I see.

He is just that bright . I used to play chess and could see three moves ahead and could CRUSH guys who can not see more than one or two and they would give up after losing ten times in a row and I could not find anybody else to play and had to give it up .

Arnie is WAY past me in this capacity IN REAL LIFE .

THAT has been , in my opinion , a major factor in his surviving this long as an enemy of Scientology .

Sometimes I get more out of twenty minutes with Arnie than I would from reading a couple books .

And I mean books that are good and contribute in a positive way to my work .

I strongly suggest that if you EVER get a chance to talk with him you take advantage and ask about anything that you need good info on .

He knows about a lot in and out of Scientology so do not limit yourself .

I hope this does not bring you an unwanted deluge Arnie – sorry .

I want everybody to take advantage of what in my opinion is one of the critics greatest and even under-appreciated assets .

Obviously your mileage may vary . We are both not to everyone’s liking .
