PSYCHOBABBLE

The word “psychology” means, literally:  Psyche (The Spirit or Soul) + -ology  (the study of).  However, the so-called “science” of psychiatry is nothing whatsoever to do with Spirits or Souls.  Instead it is a mind control operation funded primarily by governments, as developed, originally, by Nazi medical doctors working to exterminate the “undesirables” of human populations.

Here is a wonderful article about the current “thinking” and “innovation” of the “Priests of Modern Mental Science”.  The Lords of Government Mind Control are working VERY hard to invent more new ways to confuse, befuddle and submerge our Immortal Spiritual Selves in a morass of mind-control double-speak, total bullshit, psychiatric chemicals and outright fantasy they pass off on the human population as “scientific fact”.  These are the very beings that George Orwell warned us about in the book 1984.  And, the very same “prison guards” described in the military transcripts published in the book Alien Interview.

These maniacs are behind every single school yard shooting massacre, every war, and every covert operation being run by every secret service activity on planet Earth.   This report illustrates the mind-boggling nonsense of the “science of psychobabble”.  Beware and avoid.

“What Are They Doing?  My Visit to a Psychology Conference

(Reposted from Neatorama) Article by Alice Shirrell Kaswell, AIR Staff, Interpretive Illustrations by Marian Parry

“In April [1998], it was my privilege to attend the joint convention of the Western Psychological Association and the Rocky Mountain Psychological Association (WRMPA). The four-day event took place at the Albuquerque Convention Center, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Wandering from room to room, I found many surprising and delightful things.

Terror
For me, the highlight of the convention was a lecture—a prestigious “invited presentation”—by Jeff Greenberg of the University of Arizona. The topic was “Managing the Terror of Being Human: Theory and Research”. The man knows his subject cold, as you can see from this description he wrote in the convention guidebook:

Biography
My terror began in the Bronx in 1954. It was amplified by my undergraduate experience at Penn and my graduate training at SMU and the University of Kansas. It has continued to grow over my 15 years at the University of Arizona.

Ignore the Face
I also enjoyed a lecture by Joseph J. Campos of the University of California at Berkeley. Campos raised the question, “Does the Face Really ‘Express’ Emotions?” His answer was a ringing No, “except under very special conditions.”

Fluid Meaning
I accidentally touched off a minor incident the day after Georgia Tech professor Randy Engle gave a presentation on the topic “Working Memory Capacity, Controlled Attention and General Fluid Intelligence”. I asked nine experienced psychology professors to define the phrase “general fluid intelligence”. None of them could, although one did opine that “the lecturer probably knows what it means.”

Poster Sessions: Smells, Oils, a Princess, and Hair
Although there were many stimulating lectures, the most exciting action was in the poster sessions. In case you’ve never been to a poster session, I should explain the general idea. Dozens of student teams, and the occasional professor, each hung up a poster describingv their recent projects. In each session, you can stroll the aisles and see anywhere from 20 to 50 or more posters.

The first poster session, held on Thursday at 9:00 a.m., celebrated the general themes “Human Learning, Memory, and Cognition.” I was especially roused by three special posters: “Effects of Pleasant Ambient Odor on Memory Recall;” “Flash-bulb Memories for the Death of Princess Diana;” and “Essential Oils’ Effects on Memory.”

An 11:00 a.m. poster session concerned “Applied Psychology.” One poster discoursed on “The Effects of Odor and Stress on Mood.” Another, more abstruse, was entitled “Perceived Age of Teenage Females: Effect of Complexion, Makeup, Hairstyle, and Apparel.” I found it provocative.

A 1:00 p.m. poster session delved into “Social Issues”, and featured a gem of a poster called “The Influence of Male Facial Hair on Perceptions of Age.” It, too, must be described as provocative.

vBoredom
The convention was a multi-ring circus, with more simultaneous wonders than any one person could take in. Also at 1:00, but down the hall from the poster session, Mary B. Harris and Keith Zvoch of the University of New Mexico presented their paper on “Boredom and Boredom Proneness in College Students.” Some members of the audience found it stimulating.

More Smells, Parking, and Arousal
Friday morning was lovely in Albuquerque, with pink and blue skies, comfy temperatures, and psychologists in every nook and cranny. The 10:00 poster session was all about “Brain Function and Sensory Process.” There was an impressively worded poster entitled “Anterior EEG Asymmetry and Odor Hedonics: Gender Effects”. Not far away, an anxious crowd perused a poster called “Human Foraging Strategies: Outcomes for Campus Parking.” A knot of students pored intently over a poster called “Arousal, Sleep, and Time Perspective in University Students.” Sadly, only a few of them even glanced at the poster with the most intriguing title: “Can a Rat Who Has Never Known Water Know Thirst?”

Smiles Different Similarities, Photos
A noontime poster session on “Social-Personality Psychology” contained two special treats: “How Smiling and Pupil Dilation Affect Perceived Personality” and “Stereotype Reduction Through Similarity Differences.”

The noon hour also featured another prestigious “invited presentation” in the main ballroom. Roger S. Ulrich of Texas A&M University described his research on patients in surgical recovery rooms. As the patients emerge from their anesthetic haze, Ulrich shows them big color photographs of the great outdoors. If I understood him correctly, Ulrich said that this “improves health outcomes,” and that therefore his is actively marketing his services to hospitals and clinics.

At 1:20 in the same ballroom, the editor of the Annals of Improbable Research delivered another of the convention’s “invited presentations.” The topic was “Improbable Research and the Ig Nobel Prizes.” Curiously this was the only session in four days in which I saw people laughing. It began at 1:20 rather than 1:00 on the dot because the previous lecturer, Roger S. Ulrich, wouldn’t stop talking about how hospitals should buy his nature photos.

Punching, Dolls, and Car Characters
The Friday 1:00 poster session treated us to research on the following topics: “Boxer and Spectators: Perceptions and Characteristics of Pugilism”; “Body Satisfaction in Relation to Media Exposure, Self-Monitoring, and Barbie Doll Ownership”; “Effects of Descriptive Norms and Self-Awareness on Littering”; and my favorite of the day, “Car Color: An Indicator of Driver Personality.”

Sex, Sex, Paranoia, Hostility, and Sex
The Saturday early morning poster session delved further into the theme of “Social-Personality Psychology”. I saw a variety of interesting posters: “Situational Capture of Cardiovascular Arousal During an Erotic Episode”; “Machiavellian Differences on the Erotometer”; “Paranoia: Differences in Social Desirability”; and “Hostile Automatic Thoughts: A Validity Study.” Oh—and I shouldn’t forget to mention a crowd favorite: “Hair Stylists; Therapeutic Characteristics and Their Clients’ Levels of Self-Disclosure.” All in all, this session was a most interesting way to begin a Saturday.

And the 10:00 session was, if anything, even better. Its overall topic, “Stress and Coping”, was highlighted by two posters. The first, entitled “Sleep Quality and Anxiety Affect Distress Scores Measured During Finals”, was of special interest to students. The other, “Health Effects of the Interruption of an Emotional Writing Paradigm”, was of special interest to anyone who wanted to know what an Emotional Writing Paradigm is.

The noontime poster session dealt with “Education Psychology.” Three posters stood out from the bunch: “Introductory Psychology Activities Using Van Gogh as a Case Study”; “Predictors of Academic Procrastination in College Students”; and the dryly written yet riveting “Ethical Issues Involving Graduate Teaching Assistants.” A senior professor of my acquaintance saw me contemplating the “Ethical Issues” poster, and stage whispered “They should have called it ‘Can We Sleep Together?'”

Simulating Boredom
Saturday afternoon, Carl. N. Perlotto, M. Lyn Hoefer, and N. Clayton Silver of the University of Nevada at Las Vegas presented their paper “The Ludic Love Style: Difference in Sexual Boredom”. My courage failed me, so I did not attend their session.

I did manage to drop in, later, on the final poster session of the day, and so was able to learn about “Age-Related Differences in the Attentional Blink.”

Odor Ordinance, Ungrateful Dread, and Exeunt
Sunday, the final day of the convention, was a whirl of brunches and business card swapping. I caught Cheryl L. Asmus and Paul Bell’s 9:00 a.m. talk on “Post-Implementation of an Odor Ordinance,” and then zipped through the convention’s final poster session. It was there that I encountered the inspirational “Depressed Individuals Show No Gratitude.”

At that point I had to rush off to the hotel, grab my bags, and cab it to the airport, tired, laden with notes and trinkets, but grateful for the chance to have seen so many remarkable “psychological wonders”.

THE RAT BRAIN / MIND RESEARCH RESULTS

CAUTION: SOME IMAGES MAY BE DISTURBING TO ADULTS

The following images are based on a series of “scientifical” studies about the inner working of the human mind.

This series of photographs were made as part of a very expensive study of laboratory rats.  As “everyone” knows, the brain of a rat is a perfect duplicate of the human brain.  Since the brain and the behaviour of a rat can be manipulated with wires, these studies furnish conclusive PROOF — once and for all — that THE BRAIN = THE MIND.  Therefore, if rats can be rewired, so can people.

Everything you will ever need to know about the brain, and therefore the mind, is contained in the following images:

ELECTRIC SHOCK: HOW OBEDIENCE WORKS

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Mind Control – Stanley Milgram’s Experiment

In the aftermath of the Nazi Holocaust the world was shocked that normal citizens could be ordered to carryout heinous crimes.

Stanley Milgram developed experiments to test people’s obedience to authority and determine how far regular people would go in inflicting pain on others simply because some authority told them to.

The experiment consisted of two people on Milgram’s team, an Experimenter and an Assistant.   The Experimenter represented the authoritative figure and the Assistant was secretly assigned to represented the citizen subject.

A newspaper advert for a Psychology Experiment offering $4.50 per hour Recruited willing participants who became the Teacher representing ‘government’ workers under officials.

On arriving the Experimenter explains to the Recruit that they will be testing the effect of punishment on learning ability.  

The Assistant and Recruit draw lots to determine who will be the “Teacher” and who will be the “Student”.  The lots were rigged so as to ensure that the Recruit always became the Teacher.

The Assistant Student is then strapped into an electric chair connected to a switch marked with increasing shock voltages controlled by the Teacher.  The switch started with 15Volts and increased in 15 Volt increments all the way to 450 Volts.  The switch is also rated with labels starting from “slight shock” to “danger: severe shock” and the final two switches are labeled “XXX”.

The Teacher then reads two-world pairs from a list and the Student has to repeat the two word pair.  If the Student answers correctly the Teacher moves on to the next two-word pair in the list.  If the Student gets the answer wrong, the Teacher administers a shock to the Student starting at 15V and increasing the shock 15V for each incorrect answer.

The Student is actually part of the test team and acts as though being shocked.

Astonishingly every Recruit shocked the Student up to the 300 Volt switch.
65% of the Recruits shocked the Student to the maximum 450 Volts.

Milgram also conducted several follow-up experiments. In one experiment the Recruited “Teacher” was required to hold the hand of the Student when shocking the Student at any level above 150V.  32% of the Recruits held the hand of the Student when administering shocks in excess of 400V.  Other experiments revealed that Recruited Teachers were less obedient to Experimenters instructions to shock the Student when the Experimenter communicated with the Recruited Teacher remotely via telephone.

The experiments have been replicated by may other researchers around the world from 1961 to 1985 revealing the same astonishing obedience of Recruits to inflict pain on Students just because they are told to by someone claiming ‘authority’.

What is also interesting from Milgram’s research is that some “Teacher” Recruits would question the Experiment as to who was responsible for any harm to the Student.  When the Experimenter told the Recruit they accepted full responsibility, the Recruits, often despite being extremely uncomfortable continued to shock the Student.

“I observed a mature and initially poised businessman enter the laboratory smiling and confident.   Within 20 minuets he was reduced to a twitching, stuttering wreck, who was rapidly approaching nervous collapse.  He constantly pulled on his ear lobe, and twisted his hands. At one point he pushed his fist into his forehead and muttered ‘Oh God, lets stop it’.  And yet he continued to respond to every word of the Experimenter, and obeyed to the end.” – Milgram

The Big Question is whether recruits under some sort of authority are not guilty when they commit crime when their authority tells them to.  Milgram’s experiments were inspired by the Eichmann Trials.  Eichmann was a high ranking Nazi official largely responsible for setting up concentration camps and exterminating millions of Jews.  When he was caught in South America many years after the war and brought to trial in Israel, Eichmann’s primary defense was that his authorities told him to do it and that he was just following orders.  Eichmann with his calm, cool and collected posture on the stand during trial shocked the world.  Here was what appeared to be a reasonable man calmly saying that he slaughtered millions of people in the most horrific way because he was a good respectable official simply obeying the orders and wishes of his authorities.  Eichmann was properly found guilty and executed.  (See also Bushes and Bush Bolt Hole).

Clearly a key to this behavior, as reflected by the Recruits who asked who accepted responsibility for hurting the Student, is accountability.  Clearly authorities are accountable, despite the fact that they are seldom held accountable.  Those carrying out the crime for the authorities are also obviously accountable.  However, unless their is a clear and obvious understanding in society and law that if you commit a crime, no matter who tells you, you are responsible, their is little to prevent criminals running amuck in our government.

Results from Milgram’s experiment would be interesting if the Recruit “Teacher” was told that they would be held fully responsible for any injury suffered by the Student. At what voltage level would the Recruit stop shocking his subject?

Biblical Law which is defined in Leviticus and Deuteronomy, perhaps reflects a severity intended to bring the realization of responsibility and accountability to everyone.  Judge law, or “Case Law” as it is more commonly referred to, while obviously void it is however currently the de-facto law in U.S. Courts, is creating exactly the opposite problem.  See 11th Amendment which eliminates Judicial Power and how the U.S. Judiciary is absurdly claiming that the 11th Amendment grants government officials “sovereign immunity” when in fact the 11th Amendment and the very construct of the Constitution states just the opposite.  Criminals are often not held accountable by U.S. courts because they claim something in their past made them do it..

THE “NEW AGE” OF (the law of) “ANIMAL MAGNETISM”

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

Atkinson-Thought-VibrationYou’ve heard about the “law of attraction” and “the secret”?  Maybe what you DON’T know is that these recent books and films are modern day rip-offs and watered-down spin offs from earlier books written about these subject of “animal magnetism” and the “science of being”.

The most prolific writer and proponent of so-called “NEW AGE” literature in the United States was WILLIAM WALKER ATKINSON (December 5, 1862 – November 22, 1932), including the book “LAW OF ATTRACTION” published in 1906.  He wrote more than 100 books on the subject of the “NEW THOUGHT” movement.  Where did Atkinson get his ideas?  Who influenced him?  Here are article from Wikipedia that trace the origins and influences of the “NEW AGE MOVEMENT”.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Walker_Atkinson

Atkinson learned about “animal magnetism” from Phineas Quimby: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phineas_Quimby

Phineas Quimby learned about it from Armand Marie Jacques de Chastenet, Marquis of Puységur. He was a contemporary of Benjamin Franklin, who also was appointed to a committee in France to study the subject of “animal magnetism“. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Armand-Marie-Jacques_de_Chastenet,_Marquis_of_Puys%C3%A9gur

Armand learned about it from the study of “animal magnatism” or “mesmerism” or “hypnosis” from a German scientist named Franz Mesmerhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Mesmer (who was a friend of Wolgang Mozart)

Frans Mesmer  (May 23, 1734 – March 5, 1815) was a German physician with an interest in astronomy, who theorised that there was a natural energetic transference that occurred between all animated and inanimate objects that he called animal magnetism, sometimes later referred to as mesmerism. The theory attracted a wide following between about 1780 and 1850, and continued to have some influence until the end of the century.[2] In 1843 the Scottish physician James Braid proposed the term hypnosis for a technique derived from animal magnetism; today this is the usual meaning of mesmerismThe “science” of “animal magnetism” described in this article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal_magnetism 

In 1766 he published a doctoral dissertation with the Latin title De planetarum influxu in corpus humanum (On the Influence of the Planets on the Human Body), which discussed the influence of the Moon and the planets on the human body and on disease.

The “New Age” was also heavily influenced by the mystic and occult teachings by a member of the European Royalty.

EUGENE FERSEN New AgeBaron Eugene Fersen, ‘The Teacher of The Teachers,’ launched in his time the greatest ‘Human Potential Movement’ that would later become the inspiration for what he called, the ‘New Age.’

Baron Eugene Fersen was born November 18th, 1873 in Saint Petersburg, Russia.  He began teaching by the early 1890’s and went to the great beyond on April 24th, 1956.  He was the eldest son of a Grand Duchess of Russia/Poland. His mother knew before his birth that he was to be a guiding light for the people of this World; she called him Svetozar, meaning The Lightbearer.

The Baron’s mother saw to it that her son had the proper teachers and education that would assist and support the Absolute Eternal Aspects of his Soul so as to fulfill his divine destiny.  Eugene’s uncle was Count Leo Tolstoy, the writer famously known for his renowned literary works War and Peace and Anna Karenina. Tolstoy was one of Mohandas Gandhi’s greatest influences and friend.

Baron Fersen came to the United States for his second lecture tour in 1904 to share his already popularized teachings and lessons known as the Science Of Being.  From the late 1800s, Eugene’s teachings taught or influenced many of the great thinkers, writers, inventors and leaders of the 19th and 20th centuries.  Here are a few of the highly influential people he taught:

Charles Francis Haanel (May 22, 1866 – November 27, 1949) (The Master Key System)

Elizabeth Towne  (Author of The Life Power and How to Use it is shown in the opening sequence of the 2006 movie The Secret. The film presents many of the ideas that she promoted, along with those of Wallace Wattles and William Walker Atkinson.)

Wallace D. Wattles (1860–1911) (The Science Of Getting Rich and The Science Of Being Well)

Edgar Cayce (March 18, 1877 – January 3, 1945) was an American mysticwho possessed the ability to answer questions on subjects as varied as healing, reincarnation, wars, Atlantis and future events while in a trance. Cayce founded a nonprofit organization, the Association for Research and Enlightenment.

Annie Besant (Translator of the Bhagavad Gita, Theosophist, and Leader of Woman’s Rights)

Charles Sherlock Fillmore (August 22, 1854 – July 5, 1948) founded Unity, a church within the New Thought movement, with his wife, Myrtle Page Fillmore, in 1889. He became known as an American mystic for his contributions to spiritualist interpretations of Biblicalscripture.

Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910),better known by his pen name Mark Twain, was an American author and humorist. He wrote The Adventures of Tom Sawyer (1876) and its sequel, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (1885),the latter often called “the Great American Novel.”

William Walker Atkinson (December 5, 1862 – November 22, 1932) wrote more than 100 groundbreaking “self-help” books in the last 30 years of his life.  Hewas one of the three Initiates of the *Kybalion: Hermetic Philosophy is a 1908 book claiming to be the essence of the teachings of Hermes Trismegistus, published under the pseudonym of “The Three Initiates”.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kybalion

Nikola Tesla  (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, and futurist best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system, and MANY other of the most important inventions of the 19th and 20th Century. Most important is his invention of a source of Free Electrical Energy, which has been brutally suppressed by the oil industry and banking interests for 100 years.

Manly P. Hall  (March 18, 1901 – August 29, 1990) Canadian-born author and mystic. He is best known for his 1928 work The Secret Teachings of All Ages.

Rudolph Steiner  (25/27 February 1861– 30 March 1925) was an Austrian philosopher, social reformer,architect, and esotericist.  Steiner published philosophical works including The Philosophy of Freedom. At the beginning of the twentieth century, he founded a spiritual movement, Anthroposophy, other influences include Goethean science and Rosicrucianism.   see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rudolf_Steiner
