Mind Control is ongoing. The biggest mind control device in our lives is still the television.
Television or tv tells us what to buy and how we feel when we make the prescribed purchase.
If we buy a certain car, we will be sexy. Drink a certain beer and get the girls. You get the idea?
It conjures emotional reactions to created situations. The very worse thing is does, is deprives us of our own thoughts and imagination.
Getting back to the 'old' MKUltra experiments, which in my mind, never went away.
Really, why would they? What government in the world, particularly a world government , which by it's nature would have to be more tyrannical then anything regional, would not love a mind controlled compliant populace. TV has already got you part way there. But drugs can take you the rest of the way. In the 60's the drug that it was hoped would bring about the mass mind controlled population was LSD.
Guess what, it is back......
Scientists are taking a new look at hallucinogens, which became taboo among regulators after enthusiasts like Timothy Leary promoted them in the 1960s with the slogan “Turn on, tune in, drop out.” Now, using rigorous protocols and safeguards,(they had safeguards and protocols previously) scientists have won permission to study once again the drugs’ potential for treating mental problems and illuminating the nature of consciousness.
Scientists are especially intrigued by the similarities between hallucinogenic experiences and the life-changing revelations reported throughout history by religious mystics and those who meditate. These similarities have been identified in neural imaging studies conducted by Swiss researchers and in experiments led by Roland Griffiths, a professor of behavioral biology at Johns Hopkins.
Life changing revelations? Illuminating the nature of consciousness?
That all sounds good, right? And quite possibly it could be? Except, where there is good, there is bad.
Because reactions to hallucinogens can vary so much depending on the setting, experimenters and review boards have developed guidelines to set up a comfortable environment with expert monitors in the room to deal with adverse reactions. They have established standard protocols so that the drugs’ effects can be gauged more accurately, and they have also directly observed the drugs’ effects by scanning the brains of people under the influence of hallucinogens.
Control the setting, control the experimenters, control and guide the experience.
And a positive experience can be made a negative experience.
The monitors sometimes had to console people through periods of anxietyWhat if during periods of anxiety, 'monitors' did not console?
What if they cajoled? Coerced? Suggested? Anything and everything, what would the results be?
