Do YOU really control YOUR mind?

in which Brown strangely laughs at NLP(!)


On Darren Brown again…


Just seen one of his “Trick or Treat” programs in which he sent some dude to Morocco, which was actually the most lame bit of the show. The NY bit where some “totally spies” kinda NY blond girl was like totally hanging out with 2 guys, and like most USan young men, were each probably about  Each was probably about 220 lbs, 7 feet tall and all that at only about 14.


Brown asked the “like totally blond” girl to phone not home, but a friend, and Brown was going to predict a word that the person on the end o the line was thinking. Brown predicted tricycle and wrote it down. Eventually the guy said bicycle. The “like totally cool” girl was amazed and having instantly dismissing the thing as a failure, I too was amazed as nanoseconds later I realised that actually to all intense and purposes, Brown’s guess was as good as correct.


I started thinking… Was it a set-up? To which I reasoned No. Some time later – Eureka! It suddenly hit me how it worked. As Brown was talking to the guy on the phone, Brown said things like (I can’t remember exactly but this is close enough)…


a) “Imagine your back in school”

b) “Imagine your writing the word in chalk on a blackboard”

c) “I’m going to ask you THREE things, Imagine these three things in your head going around like cogs, going around and around again”


He mentioned things that were kids-school imagery again as well as (I think) something like “sitting down” The word three was mentioned at least twice, possibly three times.


You can see that his words were carefully selected to draw upon imagery of three connected circular things going around, of childhood and of junior school. Very interestingly he in effect issued an order, telling the man to visualise these things in his head. What else could the guy on the phone choose other than tricycle? Well as it happens the guy chose the word bicycle instead, possibly because he never experienced a tricycle before, but also possibly because of Browns use of the words cogs and therefore imagery of a gear like system was introduced which are far more common on two wheeled bikes.


I didn’t manage to catch at which point Brown told the guy when to think of a word, but I suspect it was AFTER he implanted the bike based imagery in the guys mind. Or he would have had no control over the random thoughts of phone-dude.


You may think “so what” about all this, but I’m writing on the subject simply because it is an excellent and powerful demonstration (along with my other post on Darren Brown) on how it could be that: if we think we are making a free choice, in reality, we might actually be simply regurgitating a choice someone wants us to make, especially if they made a pre-determined decision and made the appropriate effort to influence your apparent “free choice”. Darren Browns mind trick demonstrates this very well and reveals that the work needed to do so is very minimal indeed.


This is of course what propaganda does. Most of which is easy to see, {hint: it’s called the Mainstream Media – MSM} but if you haven’t woken from your slumber, if you’ve never challenged officialdom before, you are likely to be dominated by it.


Please be aware of efforts to manipulate your minds. When massive riches and power are at stake, you can bet your life (and they will frequently bet your life, on their behalf!) that they’ll be after you mind. This is one reason why it is incredibly dangerous for media to be owned by an individual like Rupert Murdock or a small group of people like the board member of Time Warner etc. (see Media and the New World Order by Antireptilian Iration and Loving ‘It’ by Stef, Famous for 15 megapixels). I implore you to be always on the look out for their tricks and to expand your sources of information. Try not to accept everything at face value.

I would just like to say when I briefly came across Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) one thing I particularly remember and that was our instructor (of whom it was said was a UK leader in the field of NLP) said Asians, to which I guess he meant far-East Asians, have a different profile compared to westerners, meaning of course different techniques for mind manipulation would be employed for them as opposed to westerners. Once aware of this, a study of western media and Asian media to specifically look for this should be easily recognisable.

Update: Ultrasound Shown to Exert Remote Control of Brain Circuits, 29-Oct-2008. – source the possibilities are very far ranging. Every scientific discovery has some slime try and use it for nefarious purposes, yet the mainstream corporate media only ever portray the potential (often unrealised) belefits. E.g. “nuclear power offers the potential to power multiple esalination plants so that countries with extensive desertification can become lush gree oasies.”. you get the picture.

P.S. I’ve misspelt Derren Brown’s name throughout this article.

    Coincidentally, I’ve just finished reading the book you used to illustrate the post

    As with his TV shows (especially ‘The Heist’) there are some very interesting ideas and information to be found in the book. However, Brown is a very flawed guide to this subject. By his own account he started his adult life as an evangelical Christian, saw ‘The Light’ and has now transferred that same uncritical and blinkered zeal to Secular Humanism. To read what he has to say about the sacred, selfless and totally objective purity of Western Science and Scientists (especially the Saintly Richard Dawkins) is to read the outpourings of a True Believer.

    Brown’s punchline is that the techniques he employs are used by the kind of religious con-artists he used to passionately believe in.

    Brown rarely, if ever, suggests that those techniques may be used by the Enlightened Forces he now waves a flag for and who put him on tele regularly

    Your post actually makes me want to read his book.

    I guess I have to say that I really do think a lot of the art of suggestion takes place in religion (though I can only really speak for Christianity) but, as Stef has mentioned, it’s not something that’s limited to religion. Indeed perhaps that’s why sport, politics and yes, even science can be likened to religion when you remove the facts and start placing personality, culture and ideals above truth.

    One of the reasons I love my wife is that she’s one of those people who watches people and points things out you never noticed. Since being with her I’ve certainly opened my eyes to much more that is happening around me and aware of words and body language.

    Sadly it seems Solomon was right when he said:

    “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.” Ecclesiastes

    It certainly brings sorrow to look at the world, see the injustice and lies taking place and know that those that realise it are in the minority.

    I am taking time to reply to this as it is now my purpose in life to try and warn other’s of mind control. Without going into the true HORROR experienced before my understanding. I simply assure you the truth is stranger then science fiction and more important the DEVIL RULE’S THIS WORLD.

    As Alex Fear posted, “For with wisdom comes much SORROW, the more KNOWLEDGE, the more GRIEF.” Ecclesiastes

    As one of the hundred’s of thousand’s of other victim’s living in the US, I first became aware in 1999 that without my prior knowlege or consent I was a participant in a “Behaviour Modification Program”. I was being monitored 24/7 and put in situation’s known by the abuser’s as “STREET THEATER”. The real purpose being to either have me change my moral character and belief system or drive me to commit sucide if not to insanity.

    While it took 10 year’s trying to rationalize every conceiveable reason WHY in this world these thing’s could happen????????????
    In 2006 I was finally set free by the TRUTH. I no longer waist my time trying to inform other’s of NWO, advanced technology, loss of human right’s and that so many are unknowingly victim’s of Mind Control and they have no idea of the extent I am even speaking of.

    I thank God for setting me free for this is a battle without God already lost. The paralizing FEAR first experienced by all awakened to reality is but in the end a choice. The choice being who we will serve God or the Devil.

    I am now a Warrior for God and this is a battle for your SOUL. Once you recognize this, God’s word will be your protection. You are also a participant of this “SPIRITUAL WAR” You can spend time educating yourself on advanced technology and the true history of this world. However in the “End it is REVALATION” and has already been foretold.

    God Bless

    Thamks for the replies folks, but I’m dont have time to reply right now. Will do so on monday. Very sorry to hear about your experienced Diana. Would you mind elaborating on them if I think of any Q’s?

    As we know, the limbic brain is easily effected by emotional stimuli, and as a result, those who control the information, and the emotional content contained therein will be able to influence the mass of people. Apart from the Freudian psychology used extensively in the past by the likes of Walter Lippmam and Edward Bernays, We now have technologies developed by General Electric into brainwave activity and mental programming that bring a new spectrum to bear. Behavioural control is a central pillar to those seeking to dominate. An interesting quote from Zbignew Brzezinski spells it out.

    “Society dominated by an elite whose claim to political power would rest on allegedly superior scientific know-how. Unhindered by the restraints of traditional liberal values (founding liberal values like freedom), this elite would not hesitate to achieve its political ends by using the latest modern techniques for influencing public behaviour and keeping society under close surveillance and control.” Zbignew Brzezinski

    This is exactly what is occuring around the world. Its time for people to start moving on this.

    Dear Antireptilian. Glad to hear from you again :)

    Yes. I agree with a lot of that. The amount of mind manipulation is astounding.

    As you know, I believe in God and that the religion of Islam is the best (but not totally exclusive) way dispense that belief. But I’m not going to fall foul of what I often speak out about – and that is; there are those within religion (Islam included) who use it for in some mix of their own financial enrichment, power and/or vanity. However what I would call ‘structured of religion’ {Monty Pythoners supposedly termed it ‘organized religion’} is quite far removed from what I believe worship to entail, and so I consider myself a bit of a loner on the understanding and implementation of religion. I see this amongst the Christain faiths too whereby people take on a more personal ‘relationship’ with God and cast aside the distortions and spins applied to Christianity over the years.

    Maybe I’m kidding myself here but I think my more personalised understanding of God has enabled me to see through the man-made crap and manipulation trying to encapsulate religion and also helps me to see other areas outside the religious cirle, such as UK society in general, of attempts at mental manipulation and control. I don’t calim to be immune from it, I question if anyone can really shrug off all that is shovveled upon us, but I’m happy that I can see through the bigger issues at hand.

    As for Liberalism, perhaps my frequent exposure to American libertarianism that makes me feel this way, but Liberalism also seems ‘institutionalised’ and guilty of mind manipulation too. For example I remember watching an MC of an ACLU talk touching on the homosexual thing, as if acceptance of homosexuality is a precondition of being able to cal onesself a liberal, and if one disagreed with homosexuality, free sex, intoxication and so forth, ‘structuralised liberlals’ would take it upon themselves to start building a rather large bonfire and instigate show trials.

    Once again it seems ‘individual liberalism’ is far removed from official liberalism as ‘Muslim me’ is from many Islamic ridgity or ‘schools of thought’.

    As for time for people to start moving on this, I agree but people let the differences between us hinder progress of the big issues, as you have indicated before in your execellent blog.{wordpress version here).

    I can’t figure Brzezinski out. It seems like he’s sometimes a darling amongst anti-establishmentarians and other times he’s part and parce of the New World Order. I’ve got his grand chessboard e-book on my PC but haven’t read it yet (relying on various summaries and extracts).

    In toyr estimation, have you personally noticed an increase in those for whom the smokescreen has been blown away?

    It’s nice to resume our dialogue
    I agree, political parties and ideologies tend to ringfence a set of standards that identify them. This ringfencing also acts as a restriction that chokes. My question is, how can a person have views that fall into any particular box? Can you , say. support the death sentence for murderers, and at the same time be opposed to abortion? The central theme being the ending of a life.

    The main essence of freedom is activity without constraint. The individual takes on the responsibility of regulation. To be under an edict of another’s manufacture is mental slavery. If people can realise their own potentials instead of attaching themselves to doctrines, they will begin to release themselves from the grip of tyranny that has prevailed for millenia.

    Brzezinski is a slippery character. He seems to play the part of “observer” and “seer”, overlooking events from a distance and predicting the outcomes. I read the Grand Chessboard and felt his analysis is logical, but, his logic is seen from the slant of American interest. What does not concern him is the effect all of the posturing has on the lives of ordinary people who become sucked into the game.

    The veil is being lifted, not just the tories, but all the others too. I wrote to Nick Clegg, asking him to allow the Liberal Lords to abstain from voting, as the LD’S did in the commons over the Lisbon referendum. He replied that they would support ratification in the Lords. In other words, He assisted the No vote to the referendum in both houses. On an interview a week ago, he said that he was in favour of the EU, but tells everyone else that he supports an In or Out referendum. In his words from his reply to me,

    “The Liberal Democrats believe that Britain should have a referendum, not on the narrow question of adopting this new treaty, but on the big question that faces Britain, whether we remain a part of the EU or not.The question of Britain’s place in the European Union has poisoned our national politics for decades. As a nation, we need to lance this boil and decide once and for all if we want to be a part of this European Union or not.

    The Conservative and Labour Parties conspired together to block such a referendum. They wouldn’t even allow the House of Commons to vote on it when ratifying the Lisbon Treaty.

    In light of this, Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords will examine amendments on their merits and within the context of seeing the Bill passed and the Treaty ratified as agreed by the House of Commons.”

    He, and many of the others are working for the same team. There are no party lines in the drive to globalism.

    David Curry struck me as a scumbag due to his constant references to voting by plebecite being the death nell for parlaiment.

    After reading a bit on this book, its true from the quote “For with much wisdom comes much sorrow; the more knowledge, the more grief.” Ecclesiastes, that people do use mind control and darren brown has shown only a fraction of what just a few human minds can do to control the mass of people. In human nature, all of us strive to compete and sometimes some individuals thought of manipulation towards the simple minded folk. so stuff like this happens and im glad that i am self aware of this to avoid problems in the future.

    Hi. Thanks for popping by.
    Well if the prime function of knowledge/wisdom is used for exploitative purposes, then of course it’s bad, and it must be said, that is the overwhelming application of knowledge. The ethics of mind manipulation even on the Derren Brown level. I pity those who as yet haven’t really had the opportunity to be able to become ‘self aware’. Perhaps they need a protector?
