This is probably one of the most honest msm documentaries I have ever seen on this subject. I have studied a bit of psychology at uni (a little
knowledge is a dangerous thing) and have trained in hypnosis. I see the practices outlined in this vid in everyday use all the time. Those who are
using e.g. Skinner's techniques are largely unaware that's what they're doing. (You really see it in schools and in parenting - basically carrot
Once the study of the mind was given a scientific label (psychology/psychiatry) they really set about gaining control over the mind in a very
concerted way. That was the aim of these studies and experiments - medicinal purposes appears to have been an accidental side-effect.
Although the film end on a high note stating that the human mind is just too complex a machine for them to master I cannot concur with that
conclusion. Studying hypnosis, and recent history, have taught me that mass hypnosis/delusion is far easier to achieve than when dealing with the
individual. We all reinforce the ideas to one another - and the desire to (largely) be the same as everyone else, completes the task.
The presenter also takes a dose of psilocybin in an experimental environment in a massive scanner - not exactly the best place for a good trip but a
good trip is exactly what he had. The vid shows psilocybin in a positive light, highlighting its potential medicinal uses. Amazing - this stuff has
been used by humans for thousands of years and only now the scientific community start to play catch up. It may simply be a generation change - but I
think its heading in the right direction.
