Yesterdays article, The Global Economic Opera: Hypnosis
, was the opening volley on a whole series of “triggers” employed by cults which are rampant on the internet. By no means exclusive, but certainly a dominant force, is Scientology, which cleverly plants its agents into the streams of internet “chatter” to create conditions by which the “Church” may gain advantage through constant cycling of repetitve churning of confusion and obfuscation.
The language of that article was VERY deliberate—it was, itself, a TRIGGER pattern designed to expose and thwart the systematic deployment of cognitive dissonance now exploding on the human consciousness scale. The following from L. Ron Hubbard should completely spotlight the curent churning of patterns and memes in a posture of mass hypnotic suggestion.
L. Ron Hubbard Lecture, 20 May 1952 “Decision.”
“A confused person has their conscious mind busy and occupied, and is very much inclined to draw upon unconscious learnings to make sense of things. A confused person is in a trance of their own making – and therefore goes readily into that trance without resistance. Confusion might be created by ambiguous words, complex or endless sentences, pattern interruption or a myriad other techniques to incite transderivational searches, (TDS.) (A psychological example of TDS is in Ericksonian hypnotherapy, where vague suggestions are used that the patient must process intensely to find their own meanings for, thus ensuring that the practitioner does not intrude his own beliefs into the subject’s inner world.)
When employing the confusion technique verbally, steps are taken via verbal wording to overload the subject’s mental abilities. This can be done using a play on words such as “knows, nose, nos.” Furthermore, irrelevancies and nonsequiturs can also be employed to achieve the desired results.”
Hubbard hereby cites Erickson:
“A confused person has their conscious mind busy and occupied, and is very much inclined to draw upon unconscious learnings to make sense of things. A confused person is in a trance of their own making – and therefore goes readily into that trance without resistance. Confusion might be created by ambiguous words, complex or endless sentences, pattern interruption or a myriad of other techniques to incite transderivational searches.”- Milton H. Erickson with respect to using the “Confusion technique” in Ericksonian Hypnosis, circa 1948.
While Hubbard’s techniques, those of Scientology, are deployed in a session to individuals, by no means are these techniques exclusive to Scientology’s internal programming. If one takes the time to analyze the programming which occurs now in mass scale in media, we find the SAME methods being used to steer the collective consciousness.
How many times do you hear the term “Alice In Wonderland” used directly, or indirectly to the subculture dealing with subjects such as “mind control”, UFOs, conspiracy theories, “whistleblowers”…etc.? Now pay closer attention to the interogatory…pay closer attention to HOW these subjects are fused to a suspension of judgement (McLuhan) or even a deliberate confusion to create a state of disassociative behavior.
Now you can better assess the collective electronic environment, and its effects on destabilizing coherent decision-making, assessment, and rational behavior. These devices flow perfectly in a mixed-media electronic environment and are cleverly used by agents to install cognitive dissonance via a state of internalized trance.
The Dark Art of Interrogation
Then there is “Alice in Wonderland.”
The aim of the Alice in Wonderland or confusion technique is to confound the expectations and conditioned reactions of the interrogatee … The confusion technique is designed not only to obliterate the familiar but to replace it with the weird … Sometimes two or more questions are asked simultaneously. Pitch, tone, and volume of the interrogators’ voices are unrelated to the import of the questions. No pattern of questions and answers is permitted to develop, nor do the questions themselves relate logically to each other.
**If this technique is pursued patiently, the manual says, the subject will start to talk “just to stop the flow of babble which assails him.”
So now we see the endless “babbling” so omnipresent all over the web!
