PostSubject: Manipulating the Mind of Man   Wed May 02, 2007 5:05 pm

Excerpted from: Subtle Bodies - Manipulating the Mind of Man
by Philip Gardiner
of Gardiner's World

In 1970, Dr Robin Baker of Manchester University, England, experimented on people to discover whether this was the case. Blindfolded volunteers were taken from their homes, disorientated, and then asked to point the way home. A majority – above the accepted mathematical probability – pointed correctly. When, in later tests, bars of magnets and brass were attached to the volunteers’ heads, only the ones wearing brass could point their way home. The magnet had affected their ability to ‘see’ the way.

A Czech physicist, Zaboj V. Harvalik, found people could actually detect changes in the magnetic field as small as 1/1,000,000,000 of a gauss. A typical child’s magnet is 1,000 gauss. If, in our ancient past, we actually did have a conscious connection to this directional compass within us, would it be possible to get it back?

Maybe we have actually tried to retrieve the ideal. In alchemy, the idea of the spirit of the world or Anima Mundi claims there is a worldwide spirit, which gives us information, including our whereabouts and way home. Relate this to the idea that one of the truths behind alchemy is the Kundalini ‘enlightenment experience,’ which is in turn related to electromagnetic energy, and then we can begin to see what the ancients were really talking about. The Anima Mundi is indeed electromagnetism.

Many para-scientists have discovered electromagnetic effects emanating from ancient standing stones. The Dragon Project, specifically set up to monitor energies from such structures, states that all stone circles in England and Wales occur within a mile of surface faults, which are known to cause certain electromagnetic effects. When these energy lines cross Ley lines and other ancient energy centers, many strange phenomena occur. A large cross-section of scientists and para-scientists have reported that peculiar effects upon humans can occur due to the radiation produced. These effects include dreams and psychic abilities, lights and noises. All of these occur more frequently at times of greater importance such as the Solstice. And this is important – the effects on the mind are heightened by solar activity – the great sun god in the sky aids our enlightenment process! No wonder that ancient man hoped to attain godhead and worshipped the sun god as the highest of deities – his navigational and therefore survival nature and his internal "shining" were all related beautifully to the one vast orb in the sky.

Our connection with the Earth’s electromagnetism can also be seen in the ancient practice of dowsing. Today we use dowsing to discover underground fissures, water, artifacts and minerals. The dowser uses rods or a weighted pendulum and walks across an area. The rod or pendulum then moves accordingly at the precise spot. Dowsers say that the instruments are incidental and react only to the vibrations, waves or electrical magnetism, which is being picked up by their bodies.

Scientists have shown that some people are sensitive to 1/1,000,000,000 of a gauss of magnetism; therefore there is a strong possibility that dowsing is a practical and measurable skill. This would explain how the ancients could plot Ley Lines and understand Dragon Paths or Feng Shui.

When working in conjunction with a German dowser, the Czech physicist, Zaboj V. Harvalik, suggested that the adrenal gland was the organ used to detect the magnetism. He reached this conclusion because positive results increased when the dowser drank more water. This theory seems unlikely now – unless it is in some way linked with the pineal organ. In later experiments, aluminum foil was wound around the head of the dowser and this blocked the signal. Strangely, so did a block of foil placed on the dowser’s forehead in the area of the pineal gland. This is the same location as a pigeon’s magnetite. Another strange and telling piece of evidence comes when we find that solar flares can upset the dowser’s abilities – thus showing that mankind could theoretically actually physically measure the holy serpentine energy of the sun. Much of this energy is now understood to be picked up by the pineal organ.

The pineal organ is one of the outgrowths of the pineal apparatus. In aquatic and gill-breathing creatures, it can form a photosensitive eye-like structure, which is involved in the diurnal rhythm of color change. In ancient reptiles, and still in the Tuatura lizard of New Zealand, it formed a separate eye on top of the head – a third eye. It persists in higher vertebrates and may function as an endocrine gland – internally secreting into the blood and affecting distant parts of the body. In humans, this organ is buried deep within the brain, located in the Limbic system, which helps us to learn and has emotional capabilities. The pineal gland exerts some chemical reactions, which are not fully understood. Autopsies on mediums and spiritually inclined people have revealed larger pineal glands that contain a clear fluid called seratonin, which in turn makes melatonin.

Seratonin, when depleted by amphetamines, causes mild psychedelic effects, which is why the drug ‘Ecstasy’ is so popular. The administration of melatonin can help prevent jet lag and SAD. Strangely, it is also thought to influence our rhythms of activity. Some believe it is sensitive to the rhythms and cycles of nature and is responsible for transferring that information to us. The pineal gland is associated with color recognition, and reptiles can even change the color of this ‘third eye.’ It is also associated with measuring the length of the day and keeping track of the seasons.

PostSubject: Manipulation, Recognizing Misdirection and Societal Pressure   Sun May 13, 2007 9:08 pm

Red Bluff Daily News

Even very smart people can be fooled, this was the message given to students, parents and teachers at Monday's Red Ribbon Week Kick-off held at the State Theatre.

Robert Fellows, motivational speaker and professional illusionist was the keynote speaker. Fellows is a Harvard graduate with a master's degree in theology and is well known for his message which promotes self-responsibility.

"No one wants to be trapped in jail," said Fellows. "But what is much more dangerous is being trapped in our minds."

He punctuated his remarks with illusions which kept the audience laughing and scratching their heads. He did tricks with rings and even escaped from a straitjacket. Fellows broke the number one magician rule by explaining how some of it was done. However, he did this with a purpose, to show just how manipulation can be used as mind control to get people to do harmful things.

"A lot of good people who have been taught all the right things make really bad decisions," said Fellows. "It's a natural human trait to want someone to lift the burden of making decisions for them."

This is why peer pressure is so powerful.

"Some very smart people can be manipulated," said Fellows. "We need to take responsibility for our own actions."

Fellows used the example of a sign that read "Keep off the the grass." He noted that most people when they read it, are used to the message, these are bright people who don't spend time studying the sign because they understand the meaning of it, they neglect to read the second "the" and read the message as they think it should be.

In another example, he asked a volunteer to pick one of three cards. When she picked a card, he turned it over to show printed on the back, "I knew you would pick this card."

As the audience watched in amazement, he asked the volunteer what would happen if she picked another card and he then asked her to do so. After selecting another card, he had her look on the back of the envelope the cards came from exposing a similar message. When she picked the third card, he asked her to open the envelope where she found a third message saying, that he knew she would pick the card.

"The audience member really does have free choice," said Fellows. "But I can make it look as though I knew what she would choose depending on the next step I take."

In his book "Easily Fooled: New Insights and Techniques for Resisting Manipulation," Fellows gives a list of common personality traits that make people easily vulnerable to manipulation.

He lists such items as stress, transition, dependency, unassertiveness, gullibility, the desire to want simple answers to complex questions, an idealistic view of things, disillusionment, unfulfilled desire for spirituality, and traumatic experiences.

To sum it up, he said basically, "That is anyone."

Fellows told the audience that one of the reasons people do drugs or make any kind of bad decision, even if they know the right decision is that they put authority in other people. Most people want to be right and be accepted.

"This is what peer pressure is all about," said Fellows. "Manipulation is mind control."

This is a message that Fellows has written in his book and taken as far as the White House. This week he's been visiting schools in Tehama County as part of Red Ribbon Week sponsored by the Tehama County Department of Education's prevention project.

Fellows stressed that a bad attitude can and will hold a person back from success.

"Whatever you think is holding you back, you can overcome it," said Fellows. "You can break free."

In his book, he offers 10 steps to critical thinking.

* Recognize social conditioning. Fellows warns to resist mind control, the ways that groups and certain social situations can manipulate people.
* Remember you can say no. Sometimes we agree with people to just be polite. The problem is that each time we do that we are practicing going along with people.
* Recognize faulty dilemmas. Fellows recommends adding "none of the above" to multiple choices before making a decision.
* Sleep on it. Recognize pressure to decide quickly and don't act under stress.
* Look for the hidden agenda. Fellows advises to look at what is really being said. What is not being said. To whom and why.
* Recognize logical fallacies. Fellows warns of arguments which mix invalid unrelated facts to prove a point. For instance, saying "I'm sure both agree the sky is blue," then the next thing said is, "So it must also be true that..."
* Know what a group or belief a person represents. Fellows notes in his book that many unethical groups change their names and use fronts to fit the situation.
* Recognize flattery. Fellows writes that these are emotional buttons that can get easy results.
* Ask questions. Fellows suggests to challenge claims of authority. Does a person's training, education or background make them an authority on the subject. Is she outside the field.
* Retain self-esteem. Fellows adds that people shouldn't be afraid to be different then everyone around them.

Fellows concludes in his book that the world really is a wonderful place.

"We need to trust people and expect that they will treat us fairly," he writes. "We need to be vulnerable to have relationships that work." He adds that trust, wonder, and innocence are the keys to being fully human.

He said he hopes that those who listen to his message and read his book will be inspired, motivated and entertained to reach beyond established patterns and think outside the box.

In his case it just means escaping from the box, locked in a straitjacket to get his message across.
