How Mental Manipulation "WORKS"

Covert Hypnosis Index



Introduction: A Prophetic Warning from Dr Robert Oppenhiemer from the Journal of the Atomic Scientists from a presentation to the American Psychological Association in 1955! He compares the threats posed by the 'ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY' of psychological manipulation being developed at that time as trivializing the threat posed by atomic warfare..- describing both scientology and the state of American's society at this time, whose covert controllers appear to have crafted and used the scientology 'front' as a 'proof of concept' for global thought manipulation.

"In the last ten years physicists have been extraordinarily noisy about the immense powers, largely through their efforts, but through other efforts as well have come into the possession of man, powers notably and strikingly for very large scale and dreadful destruction. We have spoken of our responsibilities and our obligations to society in terms that sound very provincial, because the psychologist can hardly do anything without realizing that for him the acquisition of knowledge opens up the most terrifying prospects of controlling what people do and how they feel. This is true for all of you who are engaged in practice, and as the corpus of psychology gains in certitude and subtlety and skill. I can see that the physicists pleas that what he discovers be used with humanity and be used wisely will seem trivial compared to those pleas which you will have to make and for which you will be responsible."

Is this the "ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY" alluded to by Scientology's lawyer Earle C Cooley in RTC versus Lerma? LINK

"It is extremely difficult to escape the mechanically repeated suggestions of everyday life. Even when our critical mind rejects them, they seduce us into doing what our intellect tells us is stupid." "The mechanization of modern life has already influenced man to become more passive and to adjust himself to ready-made conformity. No longer does man think in personal values, following more his own conscience and ethical evaluations; he thinks more and more in the values brought to him by mass media." Dr. Joost Meerloo Techniques of Mass Submission from Rape of the Mind

"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.

"Auditing is a simple, thoroughly designed means, of concentrating the mind to the state of a controlled trance. The aim and result is progressively to enforce loyalty to and identification with Scientology to the detriment of one's natural awareness of divergent ways of thinking and outside cultural influences. Love and allegiance are more and more given exclusively to Scientology and L. Ron Hubbard." Dr. John Gordon Clark, Doctor of Medicine of Harvard Medical School
