FALSE MEMORIES ARE REAL

Total-Recall-2012-vs-1990-vs-1966

If you read the book ALIEN INTERVIEW, you know that humans on Earth are given amnesia and false memories between each incarnation or lifetime. ALIEN INTERVIEW, edited by Lawrence R. SpencerThanks to modern “science”, we may soon be implanted with MORE FALSE MEMORIES while we are sleeping!  Earth “scientists” have now demonstrated (using laboratory mice) that they can make us all feel “happy” about being imprisoned on Earth.  Remember the films “Total Recall” from 1990 or 2012?  The “science” in these so-called “science fiction” films will soon to become what we call “reality”.  In other words, you may be “happy”, but you won’t know who you are, where you are, when you are, why you are, or what is or isn’t real.

“Researchers at CRNS (click here to see a list of the Global Corporations who fund the research done at The National Center for Scientific Research) in Paris create artificial positive feelings in mouse’s memory for first time during sleep, highlighting possible new treatment for depression. Scientists have succeeded in creating false but happy memories in mice, in the first demonstration of memory manipulation during sleep.

In the study, positive feelings about a particular place were artificially written into the animal’s memory, which caused them to seek out that place in search of a reward when they woke up. The discovery that emotional memory can be readily manipulated has echoes of the the film, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, in which Jim Carey’s character has every recollection about his failed relationship wiped clean using a fictional mind-reading technology.

The scientists say that the findings could pave the way for new treatments that would allow patients to overcome depression or deeply entrenched painful memories. Karim Benchenane, the neuroscientist who led the research at the CNRS in Paris, said: “The idea is to use this as a tool for post-traumatic stress disorder.”

Steve Ramirez, a neuroscientist at Massachusetts Institute of Technology who is also working on memory manipulation, described the research as a “technical tour-de-force”. He said: “It demonstrates a little bit of mastery over how the brain works. “In future it should be possible to dampen the punch of traumatic memories in people.”

In both mice and humans, our environment is physically mapped out in the brain by so-called “place cells”, which light up like coordinates on a grid as we move through space. The scientists picked a particular place cell neuron and observed which location it related to in real-life as the mouse roamed around a large exploration area.

During sleep, mice typically replay these sequences of place cell activity – effectively their memory replaying where they have been during waking hours.  The scientists rigged up the electrodes, such that during sleep, whenever the target place cell became active it triggered the delivery of a reward stimulation in the second electrode.

Although the memory of the place was initially neutral, during its sleep, the mouse learned to associate it with something positive happening.

“When they woke up the mouse went straight to that place as though it was waiting for a reward,” said Benchenane.

The study demonstrates what we subjectively know to be true — that the factual content of our memories and the emotional content are stored in different brain centres and can be changed independently.

However, the authors said they would be cautious about rushing to try and test this in PTSD patients. “It might be extremely dangerous to get a reward for something fearful,” he said.

Ramirez agreed that in future, the findings could have clinical applications. “The big thing technologically is we don’t have a good non-invasive way of manipulating brain activity. One day it should be possible though,” he said.”

MAN AS A MACHINE

EVERY LIVING BEING

From an article published in the RICHMOND TIMES-DISPATCH, February 21, 1915,  By Mr. Nikola Tesla

“EVERY living being is an engine geared to the wheelwork of the universe. Though seemingly affected only by its immediate surroundings, the sphere of external influence extends to infinite distance. There In no constellation or nebula, no sun or planet, in all the depths of limitless space, no passing wanderer of the starry heavens, that does not exercise some control over its destiny. Not in the vague and delusive sense of astrology, but in the rigid and positive meaning of physical science.

More than this can be said. There is no thing endowed with life — from man, who is enslaving the element to the humblest creature in all this world — that does not sway it in turn. Whenever action is born from force, though it be infinitesimal, the cosmic balance is upset and universal motion results.”

MAN AS A MACHINE

Great strides have since been made in the art of anatomy, physiology and all branches of science, and the workings of the man-machine are now perfectly clear. Yet the very fewest among us are able to trace their actions to primary external causes. It is indispensable to the arguments I shall advance to keep In mind the main facts which I have myself established in years of close reasoning and observation and which may be summed up as follows:

1. The human being is a self-propelled automaton entirely under the control of external influences. Willful and predetermined though they appear, his actions are governed not from within, but from without. He is like a float tossed about by the waves of a turbulent sea.

2. There is no memory or retentive faculty based on lasting impression. What we designate as memory is but increased responsiveness to repeated stimuli.

3. It is not true, as Descartes taught, that the brain is an accumulator. There is no permanent record in the brain, there Is no stored sponge to disturbances directly received on the knowledge. Knowledge Is something akin to an echo that needs a disturbance to be called into being.”

CHILDREN REMEMBER WHO THEY ARE: PAST LIFE MURDERS SOLVED

LIVED BEFORE BOOKA 3-year-old boy in the Golan Heights region near the border of Syria and Israel said he was murdered with an axe in his previous life. He showed village elders where the murderer buried his body, and sure enough they found a man’s skeleton there. He also showed the elders where the murder weapon was found, and upon digging, they did indeed found an axe there.

In his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before: Reincarnation Today,” German therapist Trutz Hardo tells this boy’s story, along with other stories of children who seem to remember their past lives with verified accuracy. The boy’s story was witnessed by Dr. Eli Lasch, who is best known for developing the medical system in Gaza as part of an Israeli government operation in the 1960s. Dr. Lasch, who died in 2009, had recounted these astounding events to Hardo.

The boy was of the Druze ethnic group, and in his culture the existence of reincarnation is accepted as fact. His story nonetheless had the power to surprise his community.

He was born with a long, red birthmark on his head. The Druse believe, as some other cultures do, that birthmarks are related to past-life deaths. When the boy was old enough to talk, he told his family he had been killed by a blow to the head with an axe.

It is customary for elders to take a child at the age of 3 to the home of his previous life if he remembers it. The boy knew the village he was from, so they went there. When they arrived in the village, the boy remembered the name he had in his past life.

A village local said the man the boy claimed to be the reincarnation of had gone missing four years earlier. His friends and family thought he may have strayed into hostile territory nearby as sometimes happens.

The boy also remembered the full name of his killer. When he confronted this man, the alleged killer’s face turned white, Lasch told Hardo, but he did not admit to murder. The boy then said he could take the elders to where the body was buried. In that very spot, they found a man’s skeleton with a wound to the head that corresponded to the boy’s birthmark. They also found the axe, the murder weapon.

Faced with this evidence, the murderer admitted to the crime. Dr. Lasch, the only non-Druze, was present through this whole process.

To read more of Hardo’s stories, read his book, “Children Who Have Lived Before.”
