The first successful brainwashing was applied to the Christians.
What they do for religious or political brainwashing is work on the emotions until they reach an abnormal level of anger, fear, excitement, or nervous tension. This results in impaired judgement and increased suggestibility. They intensify this condition until reach catharsis, which makes mental takeover easier. Then they replace the existing mental state with new patterns of thinking and behavior.
That’s what US Marine Corps do – break men down, and then “rebuild” them as marines! Exactly the same a cult does when breaks people down and rebuilds them as happy flower sellers on your local street corner.
In persuasion, the goal is always to access your right brain. The left brain is analytical and rational. The right side is creative and imaginative. Persuader aims to distract your left brain and keep it busy, and make you to shift from beta awareness into alpha. Today’s media-oriented politicians and spellbinders are trained by a whole new breed of specialists using every trick to manipulate you into accepting their messages.
- To distract your left brain, politicians or lawyers generate what’s called a “yes set.” These are statements that will cause listeners to agree.
- Next come the truisms – obvious facts people usually agree on.
- Last comes the suggestion – what the politician wants you to do and, since you have been agreeing all along, you’re likely to accept the suggestion.
- Embedded Commands are used when the speaker makes a gesture with his left hand, which is more apt to access your right brain.
- NLP – are used for the most subtle and powerful manipulation – these techniques are extremely heavily protected. Interestingly, the most attendees of two-week seminars on Neuro-Linguistics are government people.
- Interspersal Technique – is unbelievably slippery – when they say one thing but plant a subconscious impression of something else.
- Vibrato is the tremulous effect imparted in some vocal or instrumental music, and its cycle-per-second range causes people to go into an altered state of consciousness.
At one period of English history, singers whose voices contained pronounced vibrato were not allowed to perform publicly because listeners would go into an altered state and have fantasies, often sexual in nature. Opera or singers like Mario Lanza produce this altered state.
The technological tools for mass manipulation are growing. In one case, 6- to 7-cycle-per-second vibration was being piped into the room behind the air conditioner sound. That vibration generated alpha state of consciousness, which made the audience highly susceptible to suggestions.
