This is a very peculiar story for a number of reasons, for I am one of those people who suspect that there has been quite a bit of psychological operations and social engineering experiments being run precisely to see how people remember things. This article was shared with me by Ms. P.H., and I provide it as background for my thoughts:

How Scientists are Learning to Shape our Memory

Now I have covered this topic before on this website, and in a variety of books  - Babylon's BankstersGenes Giants Monsters and Men, and so on - I have talked about mind-manipulation technologies, and the awesome portent that they represent. Let's begin by making a few "accept for the sake of argument" assumptions:

  1. There is a connection between the mind and the physical medium (please note I said mind and not brain)';
  2. It may thus be possible to manipulate the physical medium via the mind and its perceptions and observations;
  3. There is a connection between the mind and the brain;
  4. It is possible to manipulate perceptions of the mind via various soft techniques and hard technologies; thus,
  5. It is possible to manipulate the physical medium via brain-mind manipulation technologies.

Now that's a nice, euphemistic way of saying that it might be possible to manipulate reality itself by manipulating perception and memory, an almost Leary-like enterprise. But could one do this on an enormous scale?  Note the crucial paragraph here:

"Researchers have known for decades that memories are unreliable. They’re particularly adjustable when actively recalled because at that point they’re pulled out of a stable molecular state. Last spring, scientists published a study performed at the University of Washington in which adult volunteers completed a survey about their eating and drinking habits before age 16. A week later, they were given personalized analyses of their answers that stated—falsely—that they had gotten sick from rum or vodka as a teen. One in five not only didn’t notice the lie, but also recalled false memories about it and rated that beverage as less desirable than they had before. Studies like these point to possible treatments for mental health problems. Both PTSD and addiction disorders hinge on memories that can trigger problematic behaviors, such as crippling fear caused by loud noises or cravings brought about by the sight of drug paraphernalia.(Emphasis added)

Now imagine planting a lie not only in an individual brain, and thereby into the mind, of a person, but into several. Suppose, for example, in a few major localities we planted a news story about such and such a famous person dying, when in fact, they had not.  Some people, who had seen the story, would remember it, whereas others who had not, would not. In today's electronic information milieu, it would be easy to do, and as an experiment, it is diabolical, for some electronic media would be reporting the contrary fact, that so-and-so had not died, and then the original "planted" story could be appropriately buried. The function of this would be to provide an almost flawless way of gauging the effect of certain types of stories on a population, tracking them and the story through the internet, and so on.

Ask around... I'll bet there is someone in your circle of friends or acquaintances who remembers some major event very differently than you, or that remembers events that didn't even happen, and that there's a major media source at the core of his or her memory.

See you on the flip side...

    Great thread.

    I found the ‘deaths’ of Milosevic, Saddam and Gadaffi particularly interesting, one died mysteriously behind closed doors, one hung after a trial and one brutalized by mob justice, all under vague and hazy circumstances. Theater? I wouldn’t be surprised if all three were in some cafe in Patagonia.

      Interestingly, listening to David Irving ranting on about Adolphin there is one glaring omission that he tap dances around and that is the secret society element of the criminal empire.
      It was funny watching the godfather, when Mike is about to kill the cop and the drug dealer, the guy that hands him the gun slips in under his breath, they let Hitler go too far, and every 5 or so years the families have to go at it too clear up the bad blood.

    This topic is more about meme than mind. It’s the story/lie often repeated a la Joseph Goebbels.
    ‘Twas a bit confusing at first because of the apparent need to distinguish between mind and brain but in the end the discussion still seems to land on the brain, it’s suggestibility, and the trickery and propaganda to which we are exposed compliments of the clandestine B S artists their minions and tools.

    BTW, does anyone here at GDS have a clear understanding of what constitutes “mind”?

    • Ramura on December 16, 2013 at 3:55 pm

      Back to creating mass mind events….I keep coming back to something David Wilcock explained well in one of his books (the first one a couple of years ago)…about some science where they demonstrated that DNA continues to be “entangled” with the original host for quite some time (at least 30 days), reflecting the emotional/informational content of the original human! I thought of all the places I had “shed” DNA, and how going to sacred sites and physically performing ritual might be connected with that.

      Link that up with mass events (even something like the death of Michael Jackson, which was a global mega-ritual, for sure, or the BIGGIE (the 9/11 mega-event) and the mind starts to think of some WILD dots…

    • Ramura on December 16, 2013 at 3:56 pm

      As to what constitutes mind….all I know is that in my definition it is indishtinguishable from the medium, except that we give it a name. The nameless cannot be named, I suppose…

    • RAJM on December 17, 2013 at 1:24 pm

      I believe a combination of Sheldrake, Penrose and McKenna comes close.
      DrJF connects Jungian ‘Mind’ with the hermetic axiom ‘as above, so below’.
      Once we accept that mind is at once a local and non local phenomena I think we begin to glimpse the truth.

      • RAJM on December 17, 2013 at 1:33 pm

        Ok I’ll just say it. We are the metaphor. We are the materia prima. We are God and God is us, indivisible. Mind is what enables the whole and at the same time is the tool by which we are tricked into accepting duality.
        Are we engineered, edited to forget, edited to be less than what we are designed to be? perhaps. Telomere’s coding for cell aptosis is enough evidence.

        • Robert Barricklow on December 17, 2013 at 4:54 pm

          Thanks to all who chimed in on the what is mind question.

          RAJM regardless of whether the collective three names you cited comes close, I can’t find fault with the figurative company you keep.

          A dominant presence of cerebral theta waves paired to an uncompromised pineal gland puts one in a favorable position to widen the bandwidth of mind which, crudely summarized, is a field of unlimited, non local potential. Like Penrose said, it cannot be algorithmically defined. While the brain can be sultified in any number of ways, mind which stems from the source cannot be corrupted.

          Pity the you-only-live-oncers for whom the non corporal self doesn’t exist.

          • RAJM on December 18, 2013 at 5:54 am

            A good Question TS and as others have said, seems to be where some of DR.JF’s work is leading. Fascinating personally that we have come to this juncture within the context of his work. Exciting times.

  7. Jon on December 16, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    One quick, clear example of an energetic connection with the human system is EFT – Emotional Freedom Technique. Based on ancient principles of the energy meridians and acupuncture points, one can erase highly charged emotional responses to events, memories, or images (real or imagined).

    I have used and verified myself that this works, and can even influence “physical” events such as pain and food cravings, as well as major phobias.

    It can be extremely effective, and is very easily learned.

    The Soviets also did considerable research into this area, and shared some of their work in physical conditioning which showed that the body responds just as strongly to vividly imagined as to “real” events. Athletes who rigorously visualized a training regimen would get just as much benefit as those who simply did the physical movements.

    The experiences and research around people with Multiple Personality Disorder and those under hypnosis clearly show that physical reality (at least the physical body) can be physically altered in real time by mental states.

    Memory and perception are deeply connected.

    I also think that articles like this represent the elite doing what the Soviets used to do – release a tidbit of information about a certain area of research, then sit back and measure the response and reaction of the public and other researchers to see how much they know or can figure out.

    In light of the NSA spying “scandal” and the deeper aspects of social infomration mining, I suspect it is far more involved in everyday life than we might imagine.

    Hey Joseph, you have GOT to check out this video if you have not already:

    Watch the whole thing. Eventually they go back in time and revisit vaccinations . . .

    Also, it has been my opinion that TV (and movies) have been doing what you suggest for decades. It is a physical AND MENTAL synchronization of millions of people watching the same TV program AT THE SAME TIME. I suggest that the message, hidden or overt, of the program may not even the primary concern. Millions of people mentally focused on the same “target” at the same time: how much you want to bet that someone has a way to “tap into” those millions of focused minds (to do what, who knows)?

    • bdw000 on December 16, 2013 at 10:33 am

      And I have often wondered if mass media is not intentionally used to manipulate physical reality. How many billions of people now “believe” that mman-made global warming is real? Wouldn’t it be a shame if something like global warming could actually be caused by billions of human minds thinking it is real? There are many other examples most here could think of.

      I do not claim knowledge here, just some “high octane speculation.”

      • bdw000 on December 16, 2013 at 10:38 am

        And MASS media is the key.

        In ancient, even not-so-ancient, times, there was not a way to synchronize millions, or even billions, of human minds, getting them all on the same page, at the same time, so to speak. Religion is, of course, the one exception, though it seems to me that religion was not used for specific “targets,” just a generalized dumbing-down and mental enslavement of the population.

        With today’s mass media, however, it’s almost a “dial-in-whatever-idea-you-want” into the media situation, and instantly, millions, if not billions, of minds are focused on that idea.

        • Patricia on December 16, 2013 at 12:23 pm

          What if religion was used for specific targets?

          The Voice of God Weapon Returns

          “At a government workshop some time ago I head (sic) someone describe a new tool that was described as the “voice of Allah.” This was said to be a device that would operate at a distance and would deliver a message that only a single person could hear. The story was that it was tested in a conflict situation in Iraq and pointed at one insurgent in a group, who whipped around looking in all directions, and began a heated conversation with his compatriots, who did not hear the message. At the time I greeted this story with some skepticism.

          Is there any basis to this technology? Well, Holosonic Research Labs and American Technology Corporation both have versions of directed sound, which can allow a single person to hear a message that others around don’t hear. DARPA appears to be working on its own sonic projector. Intriguingly, Strategy Page reports that troops are using the Long Range Acoustic Device as a modified Voice of God weapon:

          It appears that some of the troops in Iraq are using “spoken” (as opposed to “screeching”) LRAD to mess with enemy fighters. Islamic terrorists tend to be superstitious and, of course, very religious. LRAD can put the “word of God” into their heads. If God, in the form of a voice that only you can hear, tells you to surrender, or run away, what are you gonna do?”

          Is the Voice of God/Allah Weapon real? Could this technology have been used by the U.S. military? Please watch this short video of weeping Iraqi soldiers surrendering during the Gulf War in 1991, then decide.

          • bdw000 on December 17, 2013 at 3:20 pm

            Seems feasible enough.

            It seems to me though that I read years ago (no way to verify) that the us govt has a way to “speak into someone’s head” using electromagnetic (“radio”? “microwave”?) waves of some sort. I’ve never heard of using sound waves to communicate into someone’s head.

        • Margaret on December 17, 2013 at 1:04 am

          Maybe this is how the world will hear the voice of Maitreya, the world teacher that Benjamin Creme has claimed for 30+ years will appear simultaneously to everyone around the world and communicate with them telepathically in their native language … maybe a demonstration of the so-far fictional Project Blue Beam broadcasting via satellite?
          But this is more real and possibly more immediate: talking windows on commuter trains that transmit ads through passenger’s skulls into their inner ear, but only when they lean their head against the window.
          Another means would be by BioAPI interface, enabled by manipulable ‘neural dust’ or nano fibers embedded in the body (via chemtrails or other means). Tailor the message for the desired behaviour. Scary!

        • amunaor on December 19, 2013 at 3:28 pm

          A very polished Mass Media at that!

          Just consider the iterated layers of experienced polish that has been applied since 1948 when Frank Wisner Sr. first ripped the strategy from Nazi Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels play book, when Wisner and Dulles began bombarding Amerkanski ears with Party favorites, causing Frank to boast: “the operation was like a mighty Wurlitzer … I can play any tune I want on it and America will follow along.”

          At this very same time, not only was Wisner’s Wurlitzer permeating the airwaves with “Public Programming”, but Edward Bernays – Freud’s nephew – the man that painted the repulsive term ‘Propaganda’ with the acceptable euphemism of ‘Public Relations’ put those very same tool into the hands of Wall Street, with public airwaves as the funnel by which to dispense the shopping dictates from Madison Avenue.

          And today, Hollywood as Homeland tools of NSA/CIA/FBI, by which to bend the mind into conformity.

          These are the Magicians of Sound and Vision, and they know precisely what buttons to push.

    “In other words, we could be living inside a giant 3D projection of what is actually a two-dimensional space, similar to an IMAX movie theater screen or a painting. Or one could simply imagine the experience of looking at a three-dimensional object from various angles and seeing it change shape according to the point of observation.”

      Just an opinion:

      But I do not accept all the “dimensional” talk of mathematicians and physicists.

      There is no evidence whatsoever of a “two-dimensional” space. The only thing we know, is the world we live in. It is NOT a “three-dimensional” space, it is ‘just space.” All representations of “two-dimensional’ space are THREE-dimensional objects. A piece of paper, for instance, is a THREE-dimensional object. It is simply IMPOSSIBLE to represent in any visual way, a TWO-dimensional space. Everything you use is by definition THREE-dimensional.

      When someone can actually point over there to a “two-dimensional” space, then I’ll accept it. Until then, I’m not buying it.

      • amunaor on December 19, 2013 at 10:38 am


        A circle or a square, drawn on a sheet of paper are two dimensional representations, which in fact are only icons of three dimensional objects: a sphere and a box.

        Similarly, hyper-dimensionally speaking, we, and the 3D world around us, are only shadow events of a higher dimensional order.

  13. Ramura on December 16, 2013 at 8:39 am

    Well, well, well. We finally get around to THE point, do we not? That “the mind,” (group mind, especially, but we’ll get to that in a moment) affects the “prima materia,” the physical medium. Hence the legitimate concern about social engineering, programming and mind control techniques.

    I’ll skip the example given in comments above (people only partially reported dead — and confirm that I, too, have had this experience MANY times and have noticed it) and go right to the bottom line implication — ACTIVE programming toward a given end (Transhumanism, anybody? — And that’s for starters, I fear…)

    I had to back away from looking too closely at what the music video industry is doing these days with it’s ritual ceremony (blood, gore, masonic/illuminati imagery, and the ubiquitous Uber-message of selling oneself to the devil and then becoming a mind-controlled slave…it seems like ALL of the performances repeat that theme, over and over and over.

    I had seen that (videos actively putting out some kind of “shaping” coherent agenda) and was just watching it. But now add Dr. Farrell’s interest beginning to show it’s head (I suspect he has 3 future books already outlined on this topic) in this area and my “way out on a limb dot connector” jumps to “engineerable and weaponizable?” Just what kind of a future DO the “shapers” have in mind for humanity?

    And, using a question I had submitted prior to his latest Member Vidchat, Dr. Farrell beautifully revealed in December 13 vidchat how the way I framed the question itself demonstrated the western cultural bias….in other words, the eastern group would never even have that question! It truly does help to have someone hold a mirror to our cultural mindset. But to have that same person be able to identify when in culture-forming religious history exactly when and how, and by whom, that particular thought-form went through a split that is still with us was AWESOME! Thank you, Dr. Farrell! Your comments really highlighted for me that which I already knew but threw a good spotlight on it: we are ALREADY swimming in a cultural fiction/belief system that even those of us who try to be aware of it find we cannot ALWAYS be aware of it unless we have the history. Thank goodness that Dr. Farrell is here to do the heavy lifting on THAT one! Whew!

    Looking forward to more from JPF on this topic. Thanks, Doc…

    Okay, this is how the 2003 invasion of Iraq was sold.

    And even today, ten years later, false memories of the reasons for that invasion are being planted in the mainstream press.

    The value+usefulness of gold is being sold in a similar fashion–today in late 2013.

    SSRI based anti-depressants have been sold as universally useful in a similar vein.

    The “physics connection” throws further light on older practices such a hypnotism or, in a more sinister way, on those experiments typified by MK Ultra that found such (unconfessed) consensus as a way of “handling” types of behaviour frowned upon by so-called authority… But on a more positive note, it could be posited that the more people become aware of the powers of the mind – as highlighted by ancient traditions and recent scientific “rediscoveries” – the more they may be equipped to perceive the tell-tale signs of activity by power-seeking minorities…

    … 6. The mind manipulates reality as well. Your thoughts are elctromagnetic impulses that do not stay inside your braincase but affect the universe around you. Your intentions will alter probabilities in the future to your favor:

    This is the biggest open secret and the “threat” freaks them out the most. If this were common knowledge, their reign would be over. And this is why there is such poisoning of our air, water and food, and why media “programming” is based on fear, violence and division. Above all, you can’t know that the effect is cumulative (as any adept of any Eastern spiritual practices would tell you in a second).

        • Jerseylass on December 16, 2013 at 8:59 am

          Yes, how appropriate this article – Mandela has died again. I believed he had died back in the 90’s. I “remember” the reports of his passing and wondering who would take his place… but not really being all that interested in South Africa or Mandela, I didn’t do any more digging. But there is also the fact that I never came across much else about him over the years so there was no reason for me to think otherwise. Or I should say whatever little was subsequently said about him never led me to believe he was alive. So I was quite surprised about 5 years ago to learn not only was he alive but that others had the same experience I did in believing he had died…even more so – some reported watching his funeral on TV – back in the 90’s.
