You may never have heard of Darren Brown, the amazing British illusionist who accomplished his tricks through an extraordinary gift for neuro-linguistic programming, nor, indeed, may you have heard of neuro-linguistic programming. But the idea is, I suspect, rather self-evident from the terminology used to describe it: programming the mind through the clever manipulation of words and concepts, to effect/affect a change in the neurophysiological pathways of a target's brain itself.

Well, now DARPA, the Defense Advance Projects Research Agency is in on the act, so is reporting:

DARPA looking to master propaganda via \'Narrative Networks\'

We're first informed that on first glance such a project seems silly, after all, the article reassuringly coos, governments have been seeking ways to brainwash people for centuries, without much success, a statement that I find somewhat ridiculous on the face of it. Haven't the writers at heard of Adolf Hitler, or Reich Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels? It would seem that, through a combination of carefully calculated terror, social programs, and relentless mass media propaganda, that this was a relatively successful case of brainwashing an entire nation - or at least enough of it to get the rest of the population "on board."

But after issuing its reassuring clucks and chirps, informs us that new technologies - the ability to scan brains and record transformations in the neurophysiology as certain messages are received - is now advanced enough to record minor transformations. This too, should give one pause.

For those of us old enough to remember, it was not so long ago that a sweating Richard Helms was sitting in front of the committee of Idaho US Senator Frank Church, fumbling for words on the CIA's notorious mind-control project, MK-Ultra, an outgrowth of an even earlier project at mind control, Artichoke, which in turn appears to have been a postwar American continuation of the Nazi efforts to study the parameters of mind control during World War Two.

Back to Helms and his sweating brow... as the Church committee was wound down, we were assured by Helms and others that MK-Ultra was not successful and that the project was simply closed down (or that it just petered out, depending on which version of the story one reads).

This is the real significance of the article at, for it would appear that the project was never wound down, it simply became practical enough, with the advance of technology, to move to the offices of DARPA in Arlington, Virginia. To be sure, DARPA has given us a lot of goofy projects (remember that one about trying to build a halfnium isomer bomb?)... but they also gave us the internet. And that should give you pause. It does me.

    The 1960s British TV series “The Prisoner” staring Patrick McGoohan was filled with mind control gadgets, and mind control techniques.
    For those of you who have watched the entire series, it is obvious that the whole world is now “The Village”, and like a dystopian macacbre Disneyland divided into theme parks of control.

    It is my firm belief that our particular version of human history, if the mult-universe theory is true, is deader than dead, a failure, a colossal flop, that we blew it pals, and there is no hope left.
    Where we made the fatal historical turn is debatable, but that we are on a rollercoaster ride to absolute oblivion is not.

    In another historical timeline we may have done better, but in this timeline we really crapped all over ourselves bigtime.
    Berman’s new book, “Why America Failed” is soon to be on sale, but when is the book “Why Did the Human Race Fail” going to be published.

    OK, speaking of the social engineering theme, there’s this tidbit:

    Amazing how another miraculous thing has appeared as of late: Osama gets killed, Qaddafi gets killed, the troops will be home for Xmas, and now we really *did* have the $6.6 billion in the bank. Must’ve fallen between the couch cushions. Whew, glad that’s handled. What’s the over/under on further miracles?

    —Dr. Joseph Farrell

    Paradoxical, isn’t it? How we distrust and dish DARPA, and yet DARPA is the reason we’re able to be here. Did DARPA anticipate ‘narratives’ like the one we’re engaged in? My guess is…’yes & know’. But if I were them, I’d wonder where this kind of narrative is going, wouldn’t you? Or what to do with it… like how to politicize or weaponize it? That’s there job, isn’t it? What’s my job on the internet? Just to read? To be entertained? To know & learn how to know? So many narratives on Ix, my dears…new narratives.

    How Primitive !!!

    GREED gave us the internet, at least for the public.

    These [whatever THEY are] can smell & see money

    There would be, and has been, LOTS of money ($$$$$$)

    Minor transformation —Gives pause – Even the basic language used is sneaky or deceptive!

    Is any TRANSFORMATION Minor?

    It’s difficult to change, especially habits one doesn’t really want to change (especially BAD HABITS!) I balk every step of the way.

    A TRANSFORMATION == into what?

    Heaven Sake — We’re programed enough in our daily lives. NOW we ask for more of it. My wife uses NLP everyday? She claims it helps her deal or cope with the physical pain of her infermities. It makes me kind of nervous because who knows what ‘compartments’ IN THE BRAIN are being built and what are the secret code words, ETC, ETC,

    The worst thing about it is ; Brainwashing doesn’t even have to be happening at the moment. IF YOU THINK IT DOES, JUST AS GOOD.

    I don’t know if this is true but I heard some of the best hypnotists shake hands with you the minute you come to their office for treatment. They then are supposed to do ‘SOMETHING’ with one of their fingers during the hand greeting which momentarily(micro-second) throws the other person body OFF GUARD.

    It all gets me WONDERING?

  6. Antoine on October 25, 2011 at 1:30 am

    If you brainwash a maniac into a sensible person, is it ok?

    • paul degagne on October 25, 2011 at 2:41 am

      No Antoine,

      It doesn’t work! My WIFE tried it on me, ha, ha!

      On the OTHER HAND

      Since being married to her I discarded some bad habits!

      She’s not a BORN-AGAIN Christian but she sometimes tries to save me from myself.


      Who wants to play a LOUSY HARP and float on WHITE COTTON CANDY ALL DAY?

      • Antoine on October 25, 2011 at 3:08 am


        But seriously, if Science gives us the means to brainwash people, does religion gives us its blessings to brainwash the maniacs?

        I mean, lobotomy was pretty much stopped because coming out of Zombies movies the doctors realized that oops! maybe its a bit harsh.

        But proper brainwashing, from the spin of the article, seems to infer changes in habits and beliefs.

        So if I asked Religion (TM), is it okay to brainwash the maniacs into sensible people, what would they say?


        • paul degagne on October 25, 2011 at 4:38 am

          Good Points! Thank you.

          You know this as well as I do:

          Who gets to decide NEVER mind who gets stuck with the “dirty work” of having to carry out such a devious or questionable (sic) ETHICAL procedure?

          AND BLESSED IS THE FRUIT OF THY WOMB JESUS – ever heard of that prayer or praise?

          IF Mary’s womb is blessed then what is HITLER’S, OR STALIN’S or come to think of it MAYBE even your MOTHER’S WOMB?


          On another and another and another — CREEPS AT THIS PETTY PACE FROM DAY TO DAY SHAKESPEARIAN NOTE — I liked THat MOVIE. Ken Kesley wrote some funny stuff. I like that maniac actor but not this = (gossip columns said he once smashed somebody’s front windshield in a FIT of road rage — I don’t know how true this is, could be slander?)

          I like the look on his face coming down the stairs with a baseball bat in THE SHINNING for it was the kind of macbre humor (and good acting) that gets to jaded-me. (of course I never dare mention this reference to my dear Mrs. CLAUS opps I mean CAUSE she might try to CORRECT me as well!)

          • paul degagne on October 25, 2011 at 6:55 am

            DARPA narrative networks — CODE WORDS THAT TRIGGER certain actions/feelings as like not only Manchurian Candidates but us dummy-Consumers as well.

            I am trying to understand SEMIOTICS by playing catch-up but the way its taught I’ll probably never learn anything along that path. Physics forget it -never happen for I am too far behind. Mythology, maybe for I studied psychology for a few decades.

            I meant to write MRS> CLAWS instead of Santa Claus’s wife. I cant pull it off. I am as subtle as that proverbial BULL> Or maybe I did — put the thought of CLAWS in a subliminal way but I am not that intentionally dishonest. My super-ego or Conscience steps in an tells me to KNOCK that stuff off!

            But, I think what all this NLP DARPA Narrative Network is all about? If you know what is happening – the malice or malicious aim goes POOF -up in the air but if we don’t…..?

            There is this french writer I think called Malarme (spelt wrong) I have yet to read who used his writings like a song/sound as well as for the written meaning of it alone. I read where he’s almost impossible to translate into English.

            I like to learn more about written lines as music or oral sound? Especially it’s hypnotic effects.

            This idea of ‘Resonance’ is very intriguing.

    • HAL838 on October 25, 2011 at 12:44 pm

      No because only the very bad want control over others.

      Besides that crap is soon going into the (where else?)

    As Captain Kurtz said, “The horror…the horror…”
    The symbolism of the ritual killing of JFK and the events of 9-11 are permanently
    ingrained into both our Conscious and Subconscious Mind(s)…
    When the Slave Human Race gets off its’ collective knees, who is the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain?
    Have the Annunaki died off, or is it a battle of our “Human” Nature vs. our Power-hungry forefathers that manipulated our genetic evolution, and the Blue blood descendants that claim their Sovereignty over the bewildered masses?

    • HAL838 on October 26, 2011 at 6:34 am

      Nothing is permanent, Terry.
      Only change.

      If things are cyclic, they are still never quite the same.

      time is a measure of change.

      I’ve never heard a better definition.

    “The Heist” by Darren Brown is indeed very revealing and troubling. It’s on YouTube.

    I have been reading Wayne Madsen for a long time now. I’ve listened to his live broadcasts from Libya. I think he knows what he is talking about. He has been doing investigative journalism for a long time.

  10. Ridge on October 24, 2011 at 7:05 pm

    Dr Farrell,
    Why do you always use Nazis as examples of mind control? The Communists still make the Nazis look like hopeless amateurs.

    Communists convinced their people to kill 5 times more victims than the Nazis, (so far) and have never been charged with Genocide. They get away with it every time they do it.

    Communists can march down the street in any Western country in their thousands and there will not be a peep of protest.

    Nutzis at best, can muster five or six people to march and they will be outnumbered by hundreds, even thousands of jeering protestors.

    Former Communists and Marxists can run for office and WIN in any Western country. They can even be Presidents and Prime Ministers. If anyone associates with Nutzis, their future in politics is permanently kaput.

    Leftists control all University Departments and the media and all are vehemently anti-White. No one is allowed to speak in defense of the rights of White people to continued existence anywhere, except on the Internet while it remains free.

    TBH I find your focus on Nutzis controlling the world quite fantastic. It flies in the face of objective reality:

    Massive immigration and forced integration is Demanded of all White countries and only White countries. Everyone is forced by law to integrate until White people disappear. No vote or discussion is allowed on this issue or has ever been allowed. It is GeNOcide.

    Come on, does the global elimination of White people, really sound like Nutzi policy? How do Nutzis benefit by their people’s elimination?

    I’m not advocating in defense of Nutzis, who in their right mind would? What I am asking for is a bit of balance.

    • Citizen Quasar on October 24, 2011 at 7:42 pm

      With an apology; I just couldn’t resist:

    • paraschtick on October 27, 2011 at 8:01 pm

      I agree with you wholeheartedly, Ridge. I too am a bit perplexed by it all as well. The objective reality is that most major financial institutions like the Fed, the IMF etc are run by a group of people from within the same “community”, and as far as I know they could not be more unlike Nazis if they wanted to be. Of course they probably are psychotic, and “nazis” with a small “n” but then again there are a lot of people like that in the world.

      But I still see no evidence at all for the Nazis being the all powerful mastermind behind terrible world events. I see the CIA, Mossad etc … I see the odd fanatic of all creeds and colours … but not a single goose-stepping Nazi … at all. I do find it most peculiar.

      For instance, I know that neo-nazi groups in Europe, and probably the US have been co-opted by certain groups that have meant that they now align themselves with Israel and zionism. I mean … talk about cognitive dissonance!!! I mean neo-nazis … Israel … neo-nazis … Jews … umm … come on now 😀 … and some people think that Nazis are at the heart of things. It makes no sense to me at all.

      Although the argument could be put that they are just being “used” … but that of course is patronising and assumes that the people running these groups would get into bed with another group that is fanatical about wiping out people of their type. Again, it makes no sense.

      Its also said that a lot of the Communists and Bolsheviks were from the same group. Not Nazis at all. And although I have no truck with the Nazis, like you, there has been a sort of filtering out of what the Communists and Bolsheviks created and/or wiped out … the Nazis have become THE evil that ends all evil, and shuts down any dissent. It is the same with so called “anti-semiticism”. You criticise Jewish people/power/Israel … whatever, and you are immediately tarred as being anti-semitic. Its a strange knee jerk reaction that is drilled into us from birth.

      And I also agree with you that the “white man” has suffered. You see the foolish people in tv commercials, dramas, films or whatever, and they do seem to be the “white man”. Or maybe I’m being hypersensitive to these things as I get older … but I still have a nagging suspicion that I am not.

      And of course being a white middle class person, one is not allowed to talk about such things lest you are again tarred with “white nationalist” or “neo-nazi” or whatever. People just assume that you are anti-everyone-else when you want to stick up for the “race” that you are accidentally born into.

      We live in strange and complicated times, and evoking the Nazis to me strays far too away from what is actually happening in the world.

      Now … the pyramids … now that is another thing entirely 😀

      [watch this space folks, if the research I am doing is correct, and the numbers never lie, prepare to have your mind blown tee hee … ]

      Best wishes

      H Price, paraschtick

      ps I may be in touch with you, Dr Farrell, soon. Not entirely sure when though since I still have to collate what I have come across. But I think you may be quite surprised. Sneak preview: I have not only found certain dimensions of planetary bodies in the dimensions of the Great Pyramid. But I can also get to Planck’s Constant using a similar and fairly simple method along with the Platonic number (64**2) … which may partly corroborate the Giza Death Star hypothesis. To say that what I have found blows my mind is a fair understatement …

    This same PhysOrg article was featured on the ‘Infowars Nightly News’ this evening (October 24, 2011).

  12. naomi on October 24, 2011 at 4:41 pm

    I have just finished listening to a report by Wayne Madsen, an investigative journalist who has recently been in Libya and has contacts there telling him that Gaddiffi was murdered while traveling in an motorcade flying white flags of surrender.

    The United States has flagrently violated a 2,000 year old tradition of honoring a white flag in surrender. Then we have the cackling HIllary Clinton, reveling in “We came, We saw, He died” ha, aha. This is what the Global elite are, look at them. This is what is in store for the world. Look at the rape that is going to be Africa.

  13. Robert Barricklow on October 24, 2011 at 11:34 am

    It’s Bad now. All one has to do is look at the job they did on Libya.
    Even ‘Hypocrisy Now’ is spewing out propaganda on Libya.
    They are now in the process of implementing ways to put propaganda on steroids.

  14. Hermes on October 24, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Dr Farrell, it would behoove you to point out to their own demonstrated mind control since they are clearly stating rhetoric (lack of mind control progress) when last I checked it took some serious mind hacks to cooerce a few thousand people make a few million people go missing (read about the trlals at Nuremberg and what was not allowed, I agree these people went missing, I disagree on how – no autopsies? No gas residues found in the chambers claimed?). I believe nothing…

  15. Citizen Quasar on October 24, 2011 at 5:49 am

    “After all, governments (and other entities) have been trying to figure out how to brainwash people for thousands of years with very little to show for their efforts.”

    Always check your premises. This premise is totally false, a lie if you will. Brainwashing has been going on for millennia.

    Try this quote from Edward Bernays on for size:

    “The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.”

    There has been a lot of experimentation involving the reading of electrical activity in human brains by functional magnetic resonance imaging. It has been reported that certain thoughts and mental actions can not only be read by an external observer but also can be accurately predicted based on empirical data measured by fMRIs.

    It stands to reason, given the electrical nature of the brain, that a device can operate in reverse thus implanting thoughts and mental actions into a human brain. While initial devices required skull caps of a sort, more advanced devices can implant thoughts, emotions, moods, into a human brain from a distance by electromagnetic field manipulation.

    That this has already been done and perfected is implicit in the fact that an electrogravitic(?) molecular disrupter weapon demolished the WTCs on 9/11/01. Such electromagnetic/electrogravitic energy manipulation of human brains at a distance only requires a reduction of energy and machinery by several orders of magnitude.

    One can only imagine how many peoples’ heads were blown off or “dustified” in the testing and perfecting of such devices.

    In my opinion, the article in PhysOrg is a propaganda piece.
