“In the entire history of man, no one has ever been brainwashed and realized, or believed, that he had been brainwashed.”
– from “The Battle For Your” by Dick Sutphen
If you feel any TV, YouTube, or other show program became so irresistible to you that you have to come every day and watch it, – you are hooked up and brainwashed already.
Any study of brainwashing has to begin with a study of Christian revivalism in eighteenth century America. Apparently, Jonathan Edwards accidentally discovered the techniques during a religious crusade in 1735 in Northampton, Massachusetts. By inducing guilt (“You’re a sinner! You’re destined for hell!”) and by causing acute apprehension and by increasing the tension, the “sinners” attending his revival meetings would break down and completely submit.
Technically, what Edwards was doing was creating conditions that wipe the brain slate clean so that the mind accepts new programming. Then new input, in the form of suggestion, can be substituted for their previous ideas.
The techniques are still being used today by Christian revivalists, cults, human-potential trainings, some business rallies, and the United States Armed services…to name just a few.
And the more sophisticated our knowledge and technology become, the more effective the conversion. This is one of the major reasons for the increasing rise in Christian fundamentalism, especially the televised variety.
Here’s what they tell you straight in your face: Hulu commercial.
The more we find out about how human beings work through today’s highly advanced technological research, the more we learn to control human beings. And what probably scares the most is that the medium for takeover is already in place. The TV or a computer with YouTube videos in your living room and bedroom is doing a lot more than just entertaining you.
When you go into an altered state, you transfer into right brain, which results in the internal release of the body’s own opiates: enkephalins and Beta-endorphins, chemically almost identical to opium. In other words, it feels good…and you want to come back for more.
Recent tests by researcher Herbert Krugman showed that, while viewers were watching TV, right-brain activity outnumbered left-brain activity by a ratio of two to one. Put more simply, the viewers were in an altered state…in trance more often than not. They were getting their Beta-endorphin “fix.”
To measure attention spans, psychophysiologist Thomas Mulholland of the Veterans Hospital in Bedford, Massachusetts, attached young viewers to an EEG machine that was wired to shut the TV set off whenever the children’s brains produced a majority of alpha waves. Although the children were told to concentrate, only a few could keep the set on for more than 30 seconds!
Most viewers are already hypnotized. To deepen the trance is easy. One simple way is to place a blank, black frame every 32 frames in the film that is being projected. This creates a 45-beat-per-minute pulsation perceived only by the subconscious mind–the ideal pace to generate deep hypnosis.
The commercials or suggestions presented following this alpha-inducing broadcast are much more likely to be accepted by the viewer. Although the goal isn’t about just immediate sale – it’s about complete mind control over the masses. The high percentage of the viewing audience that has somnambulistic-depth ability could very well accept the suggestions as commands–as long as those commands did not ask the viewer to do something contrary to his morals, religion, or self-preservation.
The medium for takeover is here. By the age of 16, children have spent 10,000 to 15,000 hours watching television–that is more time than they spend n school! In the average home, the TV set is on for six hours and 44 minutes per day–an increase of nine minutes from last year and three times the average rate of increase during the 1970s.
It obviously isn’t getting better…we are rapidly moving into an alpha-level world–very possibly the Orwellian world of “1984”–placid, glassy-eyed, and responding obediently to instructions.
A research project by Jacob Jacoby, a Purdue University psychologist, found that of 2,700 people tested, 90 percent misunderstood even such simple viewing fare as commercials and “Barnaby Jones.” Only minutes after watching, the typical viewer missed 23 to 36 percent of the questions about what he or she had seen. Of course they did–they were going in and out of trance! If you go into a deep trance, you must be instructed to remember–otherwise you automatically forget.
In closing… we have just touched the tip of the iceberg.
When you start to combine
- subliminal messages behind the music,
- subliminal visuals projected on the screen,
- hypnotically produced visual effects,
- sustained musical beats at a trance-inducing pace . . .
you have extremely effective brainwashing.
Every hour that you spend watching the TV set you become more conditioned.
And, in case you thought there was a law against any of these things, guess again. There isn’t! There are a lot of powerful people who obviously prefer things exactly the way they are. Maybe they have plans for something else?

Once you realize you’re hooked up with TV, shows, or other video or audio programs, – take a break!
Quietude is good for a man. After you disconnect and go into yourself, soon you will get rid of glasses which showed you everything in a distorted light, then you’ll recognize your own vision of things and will be surprised you couldn’t see that before. – said L. Tolstoy
