The only reply to the sound of one hand clapping and the Hossu striking.


And this is not intellectual.

Is to have sufficient evolutionary forgiveness to turn the other cheek.

When they come to the site, many people complain.

They complain about the colours.

They complain about the Font.

They complain about the formatting.

But in reality, they are complaining about the Buddhafield, the pure perfect Spiritual energy emitted by the  site.

But not only that, they are complaining about the origin of the Buddhafield which is Satchidanand, emanating the energy of the lineage of countless enlightened Masters.

This Buddhafield energy is Kundalini.

This Buddhafield energy is Shaktipat.

In reality, the symptoms of Kundalini and Shaktipat vary amongst the people absorbing it.

Some people get hot or cold or vibrations.

Some people get projected onto the astral plane including spiritual visions.

But some people hate this energy.

Some people get ANGRY!!

They hate it because this energy is removing evil energy blockages from the spiritual body.

And the evil energy blockages HATE this energy which is helping to remove those evil energy blockages!!

Because this pure, perfect spiritual energy is attacking the evil energy blockages.

Those evil energy blockages, they say to their donkeys - those human bodies they ride lifetime to lifetime, "Go from this place"

And they go!!

And they make up all sorts of excuses as to why they go.

Very much like the emanation of Kundalini Energy from Spiritual movies like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings.

Every Movie critic in the World just Hates those movies.

They can not explain why they are so successful.

But their evil energy blockages just HATE the pure perfect spiritual energy emanated, radiated,  from those movies.

The evidence that God exists is in the information above.

God put the Buddhafield energy into Satchidanand and the site.

God put the Buddhafield into Spiritual movies like Star Wars and The Lord of the Rings.

The proof is that their evil energy blockages just HATE the pure perfect spiritual energy emanated, radiated, from those movies and the site.

Pure Spiritual Energy leaves tracks.

God leaves tracks.

These items which radiate pure perfect spiritual energy, Kundalini energy, Shaktipat energy, in reality are tests which God provides to separate the wheat from the tares, the wheat from the chaff.

To separate those people who can progress with meditation from those who need a few more lifetimes of condign Karma in order to be ready for Enlightenment.

The Evolution of people is towards goodness.

But some people are not sufficiently good for them to be able to take a genuine path.

People are made up of a Council of Dark Angels and White Angels and they are always voting.

Really, there is no reason to answer and give all of the above spoon feeding.

The essential thing I can tell you is that people are not stupid.

In alignment with Sosan, the Third Zen Patriarch I can say with full knowledge, "They Know!"

And if they say they do not know it is because their dark energy blockages are too great for them at this time.

That in this lifetime they themselves are allowing the Evil Energy Blockages to win because they themselves are complicit with the Evil Energy Blockages and the Dark Forces which control them..

And the whole information about why this World is the way that it is is contained in the sentences above!!

"Because they themselves are complicit with the Evil Energy Blockages and the Dark Forces which control them.."

Their Blockages have already prompted them to make their decision.

They have already made their decision - Like Neo - and by complaining about anything - They are not taking the cookie from the Oracle this time.

Energy Enhancement Student Jaimie used his spiritual vision to see that before Energy Enhancement, he needed five hundred lifetimes more karma in order to graduate from this world.

With the removal of his karma using the Energy Enhancement seven step process he says all those five hundred lifetimes of Karma, all those evil energy blockages, have been removed.

He is almost ready for Enlightenment on one lifetime.

This Lifetime!!

The above is an Open Secret.

There are many paths and the most popular are those which can not work.

And the people know this. And that is why they choose these paths.

Christianity, Buddhism, Zen, Sufism - all the current religions as they currently are are popular because they can not work other than as a foundation for Enlightenment - not Enlightenment itself - for the people who choose them.

But for those who seek the true path, the path which works, the path which will lead them to Enlightenment, Illumination, Integration, Immortality, Atman, - They know that only The One who has successfully walked the path can really bring them to that which they seek.

People are searching all over the planet for a Genuine Master, but me, I have been searching all my life for a Genuine Student.

And it is in their choice of Master that the Evolutionary Heart of the Student is known.

And the answer to those who cannot, do not want to, pay is to work and to help..

To know that if Energy Enhancement is important to them, in time they will acquire the necessary funds.

Remember, Sosan says, "One Complaint, One Energy Blockage, and Heaven and Earth are set Infinitely apart" - Sosan - From "Hsin Hsin Ming: The Book of Nothing" - The Enlightened Mind of Sosan, which can be found by anyone in touch with their Soul, On this site..





The Great Way


Energy Enhancement          Enlightened Texts          Zen          Hsin Hsin Ming: The Book of Nothing









WE WILL BE ENTERING the beautiful world of a Zen Master's no-mind. Sosan is the third Zen Patriarch. Nothing much is known about him -- this is as it should be, because history records only violence. History does not record silence -- it cannot record it. All records are of disturbance. Whenever someone becomes really silent, he disappears from all records, he is no more a part of our madness. So it is as it should be.

Sosan remained a wandering monk his whole life. He never stayed anywhere; he was always passing, going, moving. He was a river; he was not a pond, static. He was a constant movement. That is the meaning of Buddha's wanderers: not only in the outside world but in the inside world also they should be homeless -- because whenever you make a home you become attached to it. They should remain rootless; there is no home for them except this whole universe.

Even when it was recognized that Sosan had become enlightened, he continued his old beggar's way. And nothing was special about him. He was an ordinary man, the man of Tao.

One thing I would like to say, and you have to remember it: Zen is a crossbreeding. And just as more beautiful flowers can come out of crossbreeding, and more beautiful children are born out of crossbreeding, the same has happened with Zen.

Zen is a crossbreeding between Buddha's thought and Lao Tzu's thought. It is a great meeting, the greatest that ever took place. That's why Zen is more beautiful than Buddha's thought and more beautiful than Lao Tzu's thought. It is a tare flowering of the highest peaks and the meeting of those peaks. Zen is neither Buddhist nor Taoist, but it carries both within it.

India is a little too serious about religion -- a long past, a long weight on the mind of India, and religion has become serious. Lao Tzu remained a laughingstock -- Lao Tzu is known as the old fool. He is not serious at all; you cannot find a more non-serious man.

Then Buddha's thought and Lao Tzu's thought met, India and China met, and Zen was born. And this Sosan was just near the original source when Zen was coming out of the womb. He carries the fundamental.

His biography is not relevant at all, because whenever a man becomes enlightened he has no biography. He is no more the form, so when he was born, when he died, are irrelevant facts. That's why in the East we have never bothered about biographies, historical facts. That obsession has never existed here. That obsession has come from the West now; then people become interested more in irrelevant things. When a Sosan is born, what difference does it make -- this year or that? When he dies, how is it important?

Sosan is important, not his entry into this world and the body, not his departure. Arrivals and departures are irrelevant. The only relevance is in the being.

And these are the only words Sosan uttered. Remember, they are not words, because they come out of a mind which has gone beyond words. They are not speculations, they are authentic experiences. Whatsoever he says, he knows.

He is not a man of knowledge, he is a wise man. He has penetrated the mystery, and whatsoever he brings is very significant. It can transform you completely, totally. If you listen to him the very listening can become a transformation, because whatsoever he is saying is the purest gold.

But then it is difficult too, because the distance is very very great between you and him: you are a mind and he is a no-mind. Even if he uses words he is saying something in silence; you, even if you remain silent, go on chattering within.

It happened:

There was a case against Mulla Nasruddin in the court. The court could not prove much. He was charged with polygamy, having many wives. Everybody knew about it, but nobody could prove it.

The lawyer said to Nasruddin, "You remain silent, that's all. If you utter a single word you will be caught. So you simply keep quiet and I will look to the matter."

Mulla Nasruddin remained silent -- deep down boiling, in turmoil, wanted to interrupt many times, but somehow managed and controlled himself. Outwardly looked like a Buddha, inside a madman. The court couldn't find anything against him. The magistrate, even though he knew that this man had many wives in the town, when there was no proof what could he do? So the magistrate had to release him.

He said, "Mulla Nasruddin, you are released. Now you can go home."

Mulla Nasruddin looked puzzled and said, "Er -- Your Honor, which home?" He had many homes because he had many wives in the town.

A single word from you will show the mind inside; a single word and your whole being is exposed. Not even a word is needed; just a gesture and your chattering mind will be there. Even if you are silent, your silence will not reveal anything other than the chattering monkey within.



When a Sosan speaks, he speaks totally on a different plane. He is not interested in speaking; he is not interested in influencing anybody; he is not trying to convince you about some theory or philosophy or ism. No, when he speaks his silence blooms. When he speaks he is saying that which he has come to know and would like to share with you. It is not to convince you, remember -- it is just to share with you. And if you can understand a single word of his, you will feel a tremendous silence being released within you.

Just hearing here... We will be talking about Sosan and his words. If you listen attentively, suddenly you will feel a release of silence within you. These words are atomic, they are full of energy. Whenever a person who has attained says something, the word is a seed and for millions of years the word will remain a seed and will seek a heart.

If you are ready, ready to become the soil, then these words, these tremendously powerful words of Sosan -- they are still alive, they are seeds -- they will enter in your heart if you allow, and you will be totally different through them.

Don't listen to them from the mind, because their meaning is not of the mind; the mind is absolutely impotent to understand them. They don't come from the mind, they cannot be understood by the mind. They come from a no-mind. They can be understood only by a state of no-mind.

So while listening here don't try to interpret. Don't listen to the words but to the gaps between the lines, not to what he says but to what he means -- the significance. Let that significance hover around you like a fragrance. Silently it will enter you; you will become pregnant. But don't interpret. Don't say, "He means this or that," because that interpretation will be yours.

Once it happened:

Mulla Nasruddin was coming back, completely drunk, in the wee hours of the morning. As he was passing by a cemetery he looked at the signboard. On it was written in big letters, capital letters: RING FOR THE CARETAKER -- and that's what he did.

Of course, so early in the morning, the caretaker was disturbed. He came out, staggering, angry, and when he looked at Nasruddin, absolutely drunk, he became even more angry.

He asked, "Why? Why did you ring? Why did you ring for me? What is the matter? What do you want?"

Nasruddin looked at him for one minute, silently, then looked at the signboard and said, "I want to know, why can't you ring that damn bell yourself?"

It was written: RING FOR THE CARETAKER. Now how to interpret it? It depends on you.



Don't interpret -- listen. And when you interpret you can't listen, because the consciousness cannot do two opposite things simultaneously. If you start thinking, listening stops. Just listen as you listen to music -- a different quality of listening because you don't interpret. There is no meaning in the sounds.

This is also music. This Sosan is a musician, not a philosopher. This Sosan is not saying words, he is saying more -- more than the words. They have a significance but they don't have any meaning. They are like musical sounds.

You go and sit near a waterfall. You listen to it, but do you interpret what the waterfall says? It says nothing... still it says. It says much, much that cannot be said.

What do you do near a waterfall? You listen, you become silent and quiet, you absorb. You allow the waterfall to go deeper and deeper within you. Then everything becomes quiet and silent within. You become a temple -- the unknown enters through the waterfall.

What do you do when you listen to the songs of the birds, or wind passing through the trees, or dry leaves being blown by the breeze? What do you do? You simply listen.

This Sosan is not a philosopher, he is not a theologian, he is not a priest. He does not want to sell any idea to you, he is not interested in ideas. He is not there to convince you, he is simply blooming. He is a waterfall, or he is a wind blowing through the trees, or he is just a song of the birds -- no meaning, but much significance. You have to absorb that significance, only then will you be able to understand.

So listen, but don't think. And then it is possible for much to happen within you, because I tell you: this man -- this Sosan about whom nothing much is known -- he was a man of power, a man who has come to know. And when he says something he carries something of the unknown to the world of the known. With him enters the divine, a ray of light into the darkness of your mind.

Before we enter into his words, remember the significance of the words, not the meaning; the music, the melody, not the meaning; the sound of his soundless mind, his heart, not his thinking. You have to listen to his being, the waterfall.

How to listen? Just be silent. Don't bring your mind in. Don't start thinking, "What is he saying?" Just listen without deciding this way or that, without saying whether he is right or wrong, whether you are convinced or not. He does not bother about your conviction, you also need not bother about it. You simply listen and delight. Such persons as Sosan are to be delighted in; they are natural phenomena.

A beautiful rock -- what do you do with it? You delight in it. You touch, you go around it, you feel it, the moss on it. What do you do with clouds moving in the sky? You dance on the earth, you look at them, or you just keep quiet and lie down on the ground and look at them and let them float. And they fill you. Not only the outer sky -- by and by, the more you become silent, they fill your inner sky also. Suddenly you are not there, only clouds are moving, in and out. The division is dropped, the boundary is no more there. You have become the sky and the sky has become you.



Treat Sosan as a natural phenomenon. He is not a man. He is God, he is Tao, he is a Buddha.

Before we try to move into his significance, a few things have to be understood. They will give you a push.

MIND IS A DISEASE. This is a basic truth the East has discovered. The West says mind can become ill, can be healthy. Western psychology depends on this: the mind can be healthy or ill. But the East says mind as such is the disease, it cannot be healthy. No psychiatry will help; at the most you can make it normally ill.

So there are two types of illness with mind: normally ill -- that means you have the same illness as others around you; or abnormally ill -- that means you are something unique. Your disease is not ordinary -- exceptional. Your disease is individual, not of the crowd; that's the only difference. Normally ill or abnormally ill, but mind cannot be healthy. Why?

The East says the very nature of mind is such that it will remain unhealthy. The word 'health' is beautiful. It comes from the same root as the word 'whole'. Health, healing, whole, holy -- they all come from the same root.

The mind cannot be healthy because it can never be whole. Mind is always divided; division is its base. If it cannot be whole, how can it be healthy? And if it cannot be healthy, how can it be holy? All minds are profane. There is nothing like a holy mind. A holy man lives without the mind because he lives without division.

Mind is the disease. And what is the name of that disease? Aristotle is the name, or if you really want to make it look like a disease then you can coin a word: ARISTOTLITIS. Then it looks exactly like a disease. Why is Aristotle the disease? Because Aristotle says, "Either this or that. Choose!" And choice is the function of the mind; mind cannot be choiceless.

Choose and you are in the trap, because whenever you choose you have chosen something against something else. If you are for something, you must be against something; you cannot be only for, you cannot be only against. When the 'for' enters, the 'against' follows as a shadow. When the 'against' is there, the 'for' must be there -- hidden or not hidden.

When you choose, you divide. Then you say, "This is good, that is wrong." And life is a unity. Existence remains undivided, existence remains in a deep unison. It is oneness. If you say, "This is beautiful and that is ugly," mind has entered, because life is both together. And the beautiful becomes ugly, and the ugly goes on becoming beautiful. There is no boundary; no watertight compartments are there. Life goes on flowing from this to that.

Mind has fixed compartments. Fixedness is the nature of mind and fluidity is the nature of life. That's why mind is obsession; it is always fixed, it has a solidness about it. And life is not solid; it is fluid, flexible, goes on moving to the opposite.

Something is alive this moment, next moment is dead. Someone was young this moment, next moment he has become old. The eyes were so beautiful, now they are no more there -- just ruins. The face was so roselike, now nothing is there -- not even a ghost of the past. Beautiful becomes ugly, life becomes death, and death goes on taking new birth.

What to do with life? You cannot choose. If you want to be WITH life, with the whole, you have to be choiceless.

Mind is a choice. Aristotle made it the base of his logic and philosophy. You cannot find a man more distant from Sosan than Aristotle, because Sosan says, "Neither this nor that -- don't choose." Sosan says, "Be choiceless." Sosan says, "Don't make distinctions!" The moment you make a distinction, the moment choice enters, you are already divided, fragmentary; you have become ill, you are not whole.

Remember, if you ask a Christian... who does not really belong to Jesus, who basically belongs to Aristotle. Christianity is more Aristotle-based than Christ-based. Jesus was more like Sosan. He says, "Don't judge. Judge ye not!" He says, "Don't make any choice. Don't say, 'This is good and that is bad!' That is not your concern. Let the whole decide. Don't you be a judge." But Christianity is not really Jesus-oriented. The founders of Christianity were more Aristotelian than Christian.

You cannot make a church out of Sosan or Jesus. How can you make a church if you remain choiceless? A church has to be for something and against something; it has to be for God and against the Devil. And in life God and the Devil are not two, they are one. The Devil is one face and God is another face of the same energy -- they are not two.



Sometimes he comes as a Devil and sometimes he comes as a God. And if you can go deep and look, you will find they are the same. Sometimes he comes as a thief and sometimes he comes as a virtuous man. Sometimes you will find him in respectable quarters and sometimes with those who are not respected but condemned. He MOVES, he is a movement. And no shore is too distant for him to reach, nobody is beyond him -- he moves in everybody.

Jesus makes no distinctions, but Christianity makes distinctions because a religion has to -- a religion has to become a morality. And once a religion becomes a morality it is no more a religion. Religion is the greatest daring possible. It takes the greatest courage to be choiceless, because the mind says, "Choose!" The mind says, "Say something! This is wrong, that is good. This is beautiful, this is ugly. I love this, I hate that." Mind says, "Choose!"

Mind has a temptation to divide. Once you divide, mind is at ease. If you don't divide, if you say, "I'm not going to to say anything. I'm not going to judge," mind feels as if it is on its deathbed.

Aristotle says A is A and cannot be not A -- the opposites cannot meet. Sosan says there are no opposites -- they are already meeting, they have always been meeting. This is one of the most fundamental truths to be realized, that the opposites are not opposites. It is you who say they are opposites, otherwise they are not opposites. Look existentially and you will feel they are the same energy.

You love a person...

One woman came to me and she said, "For ten years I have been married to a person and we never quarreled. And now suddenly, what happened? He has left me."

Now, she thinks that if they never quarreled it shows they were in deep love. This is foolish -- but this is Aristotelian; the woman is absolutely logical.

She said, "For ten years we have been married. We never quarreled, we were never angry at each other." She is saying, "We were in such deep love that we never fought about anything. There was not even a single moment of conflict. And now, what happened? Suddenly he has left me! Has he gone mad? Our love was so deep." She is wrong.

If love is deep then there is bound to be some quarrel. Sometimes you will fight. And the fight is not going to break the love, it enriches it. If love is there, it will be enriched by fighting; if love is not there, then you part, you separate. Ten years is a long time -- even twenty-four hours is too long to be constantly in one state of mind, because mind moves to the opposite.

You love a person; sometimes you feel angry. Really, you feel angry only because you love. Sometimes you hate! Sometimes you would like to sacrifice yourself for your lover, and sometimes you would like to kill the lover. And both are you.

If you never quarreled for ten years, it means there was no love at all. It means it was not a relationship. And you were so afraid that any anger, any conflict, any slight thing could break down the whole thing. You were so afraid you never quarreled. You never believed that the love could go deeper than the quarrel, that the quarrel would be momentary and after the quarrel you would fall into each other's arms more deeply. No, you never trusted that. That's why you managed not to fight. And this is not something to be surprised about, that the man has left. I said, "I am surprised that he remained with you for ten years. Why?"

One man came to me and he said, "Something has gone wrong with my son. I have known him for twenty years -- he was always obedient. Such a good boy you cannot find anywhere. He never disobeyed, he never went against me. And now suddenly he has become a hippie. Now suddenly he doesn't listen. He looks at me as if I am not his father at all. He looks at me as if I am a stranger. And for twenty years he was so obedient. What has happened to my son?"

Nothing has happened. This is what was to be expected, because if a son really loves his father he disobeys also. Whom else should he disobey? If a son really loves his father and trusts him, sometimes he goes away also -- because he knows the relationship is so deep that by disobeying it is not going to be broken. Rather, on the contrary, it will be enriched. The opposite enriches.

Really, the opposite is not opposite. It is just a rhythm, a rhythm of the same; you obey and then you disobey -- it is a rhythm. Otherwise, just going on obeying, obeying, everything becomes monotonous and dead. Monotony is the nature of death, because the opposite is not there.

Life is alive. The opposite is there, a rhythm is there. You move, you come back; you depart, you arrive; you disobey, then you obey also; you love and you hate. This is life, but not logic. Logic says if you love you cannot hate. If you love, how can you be angry? If you love in this way then you love in a monotonous way, the same pitch. But then you will become tense, then it is impossible to relax.

Logic believes in linear phenomena: in one line you move. Life believes in circles: the same line goes up, comes down, becomes a circle.

You must have seen the Chinese circle of YIN and YANG. That is how life is: opposites meeting. That circle of YIN and YANG is half white, half black. In the white there is a black spot, and in the black there is a white spot. The white is moving into the black, and the black is moving into the white -- it is a circle. The woman moving into the man, the man moving into the woman... this is life. And if you observe minutely, you will see it within you.

A man is not a man twenty-four hours a day, cannot be -- sometimes he is a woman. A woman is not a woman twenty-four hours a day -- sometimes she is a man also. They move to the opposite. When a woman is angry she is no more a woman; she becomes more aggressive than any man and she is more dangerous than any man, because her manhood is purer and never used. So whenever she uses it, it has a sharpness no man can compete with. It is just like soil which has not been used for many many years; then you throw the seeds -- and a bumper crop!

A woman sometimes becomes a man, but when she becomes then no man can compete. Then she is very dangerous; then it is better for the man to submit. And that's what all men do -- they become submissive, they surrender. Because immediately the man has to become the woman, otherwise there will be trouble. Two swords in one seat -- there will be trouble. If the woman has become the man, if she has changed the role, immediately the man becomes the woman. Now everything is reestablished. Again the circle is complete.

And whenever a man becomes submissive and surrenders, that surrender has a purity no woman can compete with -- because ordinarily he is never in that posture, in that game. Ordinarily he stands and fights. Ordinarily he is a will, not surrender. But whenever he surrenders it has an innocence that no woman can compete with. Look at a man in love -- he becomes just a small child.

But this is how LIFE moves. And if you understand it then you are not worried at all. Then you know: the lover has departed, he will come back; the beloved is angry she will love. Then you have patience. With Aristotle you cannot have any patience, because if a lover has departed, he has departed on a linear journey -- no coming back, it is not a circle. But in the East we believe in the circle; in the West they believe in the line.

The Western mind is linear, the Eastern mind is circular. So in the East a lover can wait. He knows that the woman who has left him now will come back. She is already on the way, she must be already repenting, she must have already repented, she must be coming; sooner or later she will knock at the door. Just wait... because the opposite is always there.

And whenever a woman comes back after anger, then love again is fresh. Now it is not repetition. The gap of anger destroyed the past. Now she is again a young girl, a virgin girl. Again she falls in love -- everything becomes fresh.

If you understand this, then you are not against anything. You know even anger is beautiful, even a quarrel here and there gives tone to life. And everything helps the richness. Then you accept, then deep in acceptance you are patient, then there is no impatience and no hurry. Then you can wait and pray and hope and dream.

Otherwise, if life is linear, as Aristotle thinks or -- as Western thinking has moved from Aristotle to Bertrand Russell -- as Bertrand Russell thinks, then life has much impatience. Nobody is going to come back; then you are always trembling, afraid, and then you become suppressive. Then you may stay with a woman for ten years or for ten lives, but that staying is with a stranger. You are controlling yourself, she is controlling herself, and there is no meeting. Life is not logic. Logic is just a part -- of course, very clean cut, categorized, compartmentalized, divided -- but life is messy. But what to do? It is so. It is not so compartmentalized, so clear-cut, divided -- it is a chaos. But logic is dead and life is alive, so the question is whether to choose consistency or to choose life.

If you are too much for consistency you will become dead, and deadlier and deadlier, because consistency is possible only if you drop the opposite completely. Then you love and only love and only love and are never angry, never hate, never fight. You obey, only obey -- never disobedience, never rebellion, never going away. But then everything becomes stale, then the relationship becomes poisonous -- then it KILLS.

This Sosan is not for logic, he is for life. Now, try to understand the significance of his words.

Says he:






JUST LIKE CHUANG TZU: "Easy is right." THE GREAT WAY IS NOT DIFFICULT. If it appears difficult, it is you who make it difficult. The Great Way is easy.

How can it be difficult? Even trees follow it, rivers follow it, rocks follow it. How can it be difficult? Even birds fly in it and fish swim in it. How can it be difficult? Man makes it difficult, mind makes it difficult -- and the trick to make any easy thing difficult is to choose, to make a distinction.

Love is easy, hate is easy, but you choose. You say, I will only love, I will not hate." Now everything has become difficult. Now you cannot even love! To breathe in is easy, to breathe out is easy. You choose. You say, "I will only breathe in, I will not breathe out." Now everything has become difficult.

The mind can say, "Why breathe out? Breath is life. Simple arithmetic: go on breathing in, don't breathe out you will become more and more alive. More and more life will be accumulated. You will become a great treasure of life. Breathe in only, don't breathe out because breathing out is death."

Remember, the first thing a child has to do when he is born is to breathe in. And the last thing when a man dies will be to breathe out. Life begins with breathing in and death begins with breathing out. Each moment when you breathe in you are reborn; each moment when you breathe out you are dead, because breath IS life. That's why Hindus have called it PRANA: PRANA means life. Breath IS life.

The simple logic, simple arithmetic, there is not much trouble, you can make it plain: more and more breathe in and don't breathe out, then you will never die. If you breathe out you will have to die. And if you do it too much you will die soon! Arithmetic -- simple, easy... appears easy. So what is a logician supposed to do? A logician will only breathe in, never breathe out.

Love is breathing in, hate is breathing out.

So what to do? Life is easy if you don't decide, because then you know breathing in and breathing out are not two opposites things; they are two parts of one process. And those two parts are organic parts, you cannot divide them. And if you don't breathe out...? The logic is wrong. You will not be alive -- you will be simply, immediately, dead.

Try -- just breathe in and don't breathe out. You will understand, you will become very very tense. The whole being would like to breathe out because this is going to be death. If you choose, you will be in difficulty. If you don't choose, everything is easy. Easy is right.

If man is in difficulty it is because of too many teachers who have poisoned your mind, who have been teaching you: "Choose this! Don't do this, do that!" Their dos and don'ts have killed you. And they look logical. If you go to argue with them they will win the argument. Logic will help them: "Look! It is so simple! Why breathe out if it is death?"

And this has happened, not only with breathing... or even with breathing. There are schools of yoga which say that your life is counted through breath; not in years but in breaths your life is counted -- so breathe slowly. If you take twelve breaths in one minute you will die soon; take six, or three, then you will live long.

Nobody has succeeded, but people go on trying. Breathe slowly. Why? -- because if you breathe slowly the breath will be outgoing less and less, so less death will happen to you, or, the longer you will be able to live. The only thing that will happen will be that your zest for life will be lost. It will not be lengthened, but it may appear long.

It is said that married people live longer than bachelors, so somebody asked Nasruddin, "Is it true, Nasruddin?"

Nasruddin said, "It appears so. A married man does not live long, but it appears that he has been living long." Because when there is much trouble, time seems longer. When there is no trouble, time seems shorter.

These so-called yogis who go on breathing less and less and slow, they slow down the process of life only. They are less alive, that's all. They will not be longer alive -- less alive. They are not living fully; their candle is not burning perfectly. The zest, the enthusiasm, the dance is lost. They drag themselves, that's all.

And this has happened with sex, because with sex people think death enters. And they are right, because sex energy gives birth to life -- so the more sex energy moves out, the more life is moving out. Logical, absolutely Aristotelian, but foolish. And you cannot find greater fools than logicians. It is logical that life-energy comes from sex -- a child is born because of sex, sex IS the source of life -- so keep it in. Don't allow it to go out, otherwise you will be dead. So the whole world has become afraid.

But it is the same, just like keeping the breath in, then the whole being wants to throw it out. So your so-called BRAHMACHARINS, celibates, who try to keep the sex energy in, the semen in, the whole body wants to throw it out. Their whole life becomes sexual -- their mind becomes sexual, they dream of sex, they think of sex. Sex becomes their obsession because they are trying to do something, logical of course, but not true to life. And they don't live long, they die soon.

This is a new finding, a new research: that a man lives longer if he prolongs his love life as much as possible. If a man can make love at eighty years of age he will live longer. Why? Because the more you breathe out, the more you breathe in. So exactly... if you want more life, breathe out more so you create a vacuum inside and more breath comes in. You don't think about breathing in. You simply exhale as much as you can and your whole being will inhale. Love more -- that is breathing out -- and your body will gather energy from the whole cosmos. You create the vacuum and the energy comes.

It is just like this in every process of life. You eat, but then you become a miser, you become constipated. The logic is right: don't breathe out. Constipation is choosing for breathing in and being against breathing out. Almost every civilized person is constipated; you can measure civilization through constipation. The more constipated a country the more civilized, because the more logical. Why breathe out? Just go on breathing in. Food is energy. Why throw it out? You may not be aware but this is the unconscious getting logical and Aristotelian.

But life is a balance between throwing out and inviting in. You are just a passage. Share! Give! and more will be given to you. Be a miser! Don't give! and less will be given to you because you don't need it.

Remember, and watch your life processes. If you are really interested in understanding enlightenment ultimately, remember to give so that more is given to you whatsoever it is. Breathe out, exhale more. That is what sharing means, giving means.

A gift is giving your energies, so more is given to you. But the mind says... it has its own logic, and Sosan calls that logic the disease.


You make it difficult, YOU are difficult. The Great Way is easy...


Don't prefer -- just allow life to move. You don't say to life, "Move this way, go to the north, or go to the south." You don't say -- you simply flow with life. You don't fight against the current, you become one with the current.


The Great Way is easy FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NO PREFERENCES. And you have preferences -- about everything! About everything you bring your mind in. You say, "I like, I don't like. I prefer this, I don't prefer that."


When you have no preferences... when all 'for' and 'against' attitudes are absent, both love and hate are absent, you neither like something nor dislike something, you simply allow everything to happen...



But your mind will say, "You will become an animal if you don't prefer. If you don't choose then what will be the difference between you and a tree7" There will be a difference, a great difference, but not the difference which brings the mind in -- a difference which comes through awareness. The tree is choiceless, unconscious. You will be choiceless, conscious. That is what choiceless awareness means and that is the greatest distinction: you will be aware that you are not choosing.

And this awareness gives such profound peace... you become a Buddha, you become a Sosan, a Chuang Tzu. The tree cannot become a Chuang Tzu. Chuang Tzu is like the tree, and plus. He is like the tree as far as choice is concerned, he is absolutely unlike the tree as far as awareness is concerned. He is fully aware that he is not choosing.


Love and hate both give color to your eyes and then you cannot see clearly. If you love a person, you start seeing things which are not there. No woman is as beautiful as you think when you love her, because you project. You have a dream girl in the mind and that dream girl is projected. Somehow the real girl functions only as a screen.

That's why every love comes to a frustrating point sooner or later, because how can the girl go on playing the screen? She is a real person; she will assert, she will say, "I am not a screen!" How long can she go on fitting in with your projection? Sooner or later you feel they don't fit. In the beginning she yielded, in the beginning you yielded. You were a projection screen for her, she was a projection screen for you.

Mulla Nasruddin's wife was saying to him -- I overheard it -- she was saying, "You don't love me as much as you loved me before, when you were courting me."

Mulla Nasruddin said, "Darling, don't pay much attention to those things -- they were just campaign propaganda. I forget what you said, you forget what I said. Now let us be real."

Nobody can play a screen for you forever because it is uncomfortable. How can somebody adjust to your dream7 He has his own reality, and the reality asserts.

If you love a person, you project things which are not there. If you hate a person, again you project things which are not there. In love the person becomes a god. In hate the person becomes a devil -- and the person is neither god nor devil. The person is simply himself or herself. These devils and gods are projections. If you love, you cannot see clearly. If you hate, you cannot see clearly.

When there is no liking, no disliking, your eyes are clear, you have a clarity. Then you see the other as he is or as she is. And when you have a clarity of consciousness the whole existence reveals its reality to you. That reality is God, that reality is truth.

What does it mean? A man like Sosan will not love? His love will have a totally different quality; it will not be like yours. He will love, but his love will not be a choice. He will love, but his love will not be a projection. He will love, but his love will not be a love for his own dream. He will love the real. That love towards the real is compassion.

He will not project this way or that. He will not see a god in you or a devil. He will simply see you and he will share because he has enough -- and the more you share, the more it grows. He will share his ecstasy with you.

When YOU love, you project. You love, not to give -- you love to take, you love to exploit. When you love a person you start trying to fix the person according to you, according to your ideas. Every husband is doing that, every wife is doing that, every friend. They go on trying to change the other, the real, and the real cannot be changed -- you will only get frustrated.

The real cannot be changed, only your dream will be shattered and then you feel hurt. You don't listen to reality. Nobody is here to fulfill your dream. Everybody is here to fulfill his own destiny, his own reality.

A man like Sosan loves, but his love is not an exploitation. He loves because he has got too much, he is overflowing. He is not creating a dream around anybody. Whosoever comes on his path he shares with. His sharing is unconditional, and he does not expect a thing from you. If love expects then there will be frustration. If love expects then there will be unfulfillment. If love expects there is going to be misery and madness.

"No," says Sosan, "neither love nor hate. You simply look at the reality of the other." This is Buddha's love: to see the reality of the other, to see as the other is, just to see the reality -- not to project, not to dream, not to create an image, not to try to fix the other according to your image.


Mind has to love and hate, and mind has to go continuously fighting between these two. If you don't love and don't hate, you go beyond mind. Where is the mind then? Within you, when choice disappears mind disappears. Even if you say, "I would like to be silent," you will never be silent because you have a preference. This is the problem.

People come to me and they say, "I would LIKE to be silent, I don't want these tensions any more." I feel sorry for them -- sorry because what they are saying is stupid. If you don't want tensions any more you will create new ones, because this not-wanting is going to create a new tension. And if you want silence too much, if you are too much after it, your silence itself will become a tension. You will be more disturbed because of it now.

What is silence? It is a deep understanding -- understanding of the phenomenon that if you prefer, you will be tense. Even if you prefer silence, you will be tense.

Understand, feel it -- whenever you prefer, you become tense; whenever you don't prefer, there is no tension, you are relaxed. And when you are relaxed, your eyes have a clarity; they are not crowded with clouds and dreams. No thoughts move in the mind; you can see through. And when you can see the true, it liberates. Truth liberates.


The smallest distinction, the slightest choice, and you are divided. Then you have a hell and a heaven, and between these two you will be crushed.


Move without opinion. Move naked, with no clothes, with no opinions about truth, because truth abhors all opinions. Drop all your philosophies, theories, doctrines, scriptures! Drop all rubbish! You go silent, unchoosing, your eyes just ready to see what is, not in any way hoping to see some of your wishes fulfilled. Don't carry wishes. It is said the path of hell is completely filled with wishes -- good wishes, hopes, dreams, rainbows, ideals. The path of heaven is absolutely empty.

Drop all the burdens! The higher you want to reach, the less burdened you must be. If you go to the Himalayas you have to unburden yourself completely. Finally, when you reach the Gourishankar, the Everest, you have to drop everything. You have to go completely naked, because the higher you move, the more weightless you are needed to be. And opinions are weights on you. They are not wings, they are like paperweights. Opinionless, without any preference...


Don't be a theist and don't be an atheist if you really want to know what truth is. Don't say, "There is God"; don t say, "There is not," because whatsoever you say will become a deep desire. And whatsoever is there hidden in the desire you will project.

If you want to see God as a Krishna with a flute on his lips, someday you will see him -- not because Krishna is there, only because you had a seed of desire that you projected on the screen of the world. If you want to see Jesus crucified, you will see.

Whatsoever you want will be projected, but it is just a dream world -- you are not coming nearer to the truth. Become seedless within: no opinion, no thought for or against, no philosophy. You simply go to see that which is. You don't carry any mind. You go mindless.


THIS IS THE DISEASE OF THE MIND: what one likes and what one does not like, for and against. Why is the mind divided? Why can't you be one? You would like, you wish to be one, but you go on watering the divisions, the preferences, likes and dislikes.

Just the other day a woman came and she said, "Bless me, I would like your blessings."

But I saw she was troubled, worried, so I asked, "What is the matter?"

She said, "But I am already initiated by another Master."

A struggle -- she wants my blessings but the mind says that I am not her Master. She has another Master, so what to do? I told her to drop both. It will be easier if I say to her, "Drop the old. Choose me." It will be easier! because then the mind can go on functioning, but the trouble will remain the same. The name of the disease will change, but the disease will remain the same. Again, somewhere else, the same doubt will arise, the same wavering.

But if I say, "Drop both"... because that is the only way to reach to a Master, when you don't have any preference this way or that. You simply come empty. You simply come without an opinion. You simply come vacant, receptive. Only then do you come to a Master! There is no other way. And if the Master is going to become the door for the truth, this is going to be so, because this is the preparation, this is the initiation.

A Master is to help you to become opinionless, mindless. If the Master himself becomes your choice then he will be a barrier. Then you have again chosen, again the mind has been used. And the more you use the mind, the more it is strengthened, the stronger it becomes. Don't use it.

Difficult, because you will say, "What will happen to our love? What will happen to our belonging? What will happen to our beliefs? What will happen to our religion, church and the temple?" They are your burdens. Be freed of them, and let them be freed of you. They are keeping you here, rooted, and truth would want you to be liberated. Liberated you reach, with wings you reach, weightless you reach.

Says Sosan:


How to overcome it? Is there any way to overcome it? No, there is no way. One has simply to understand it. One has simply to look at the facility of it. One has just to close one's eyes and look at one's own life -- watch it. And you will feel the truth of Sosan. And when you feel the truth, the disease drops. There is no medicine for it, because if medicine is given to you you will start liking the medicine. Then the disease will be forgotten but the medicine will be liked, and then the medicine becomes a disease.

No, Sosan is not going to give you any medicine, any method. He is not going to suggest to you what to do. He is simply going to insist again and again and again, a thousand and one times, that you understand how you have created this whole mess around you, how you are in such misery. Nobody else has created it; it is your mind's disease of preference, of choosing.

Don't choose. Accept life as it is in its totality. You must look at the total: life and death together, love and hate together, happiness/unhappiness together, agony/ecstasy together. If you look at them together, then what is there to choose? If you see they are one, then from where can choice enter? If you see agony is nothing but ecstasy, ecstasy nothing but agony; if you can see happiness is nothing but unhappiness; love is nothing but hate, hate is nothing but love -- then where to choose? how to choose? Then choice drops.

You are not dropping it. If you drop it, that will become a choice -- this is the paradox. You are not supposed to drop it, because if you drop it that means you have chosen for and against. Now your choice is for totality. You are for totality and against division, but the disease has entered. It is subtle.

You simply understand, and the very understanding becomes dropping. You never drop it. You simply laugh... and you ask for a cup of tea.

Energy Enhancement          Enlightened Texts         Zen          Hsin Hsin Ming: The Book of Nothing



It is necessary to have the aim of being a good person.

How else are we to know when we are not good?

But the attainment and maintenance of Goodness and Illumination depend only on Viveka and Vairagya or as it is normally translated, Discrimination. However, Vairagya as symbolised by the pictures of Manjushri pictured with his Sword of Vairagya gives a much more active technique in the removal of Impurities, Effluent, or as we call it in Energy Enhancement - Energy Blockages.. than mere meditation, or words..



Manjushri Manjusri Sword Vairagya Discrimination


The Pali canon recognizes four levels of Awakening, the first of which is called stream entry. This gains its name from the fact that a person who has attained this level has entered the "stream" flowing inevitably to nibbana. He/she is guaranteed to achieve full Awakening within seven lifetimes at most, and in the interim will not be reborn in any of the lower realms.

This study guide on stream entry is divided into two parts. The first deals with the practices leading to stream entry; the second, with the experience of stream entry and its results.

Buddhist Stream Entry Part 1 Meditational Alignment with a Stream of Energy From Heaven to Earth - The Antahkarana

Buddhist Stream Entry Part 2: Stream entry and After - Meditational Alignment with a Stream of Energy From Heaven to Earth - The Antahkarana

A Stream Enterer is a person who aligns his body and mind with this stream of Energy the Infinity of Chakras above the head where getting your Body and Mind into alignment in Meditation, with the energies from the center of the Universe through an infinity of Chakras above the head  through the body to the center of the Earth Chakra, Kundalini Chakra and below that in Meditation.

You can talk about the effects below of the Quantum Leap of Enlightenment for ten thousand years but without meditating. Without accessing the energies of the Jhanas, the Samadhis of the Chakras above the head. Without purifying all the energy blockage Dark Angels within and outside your body. These talks can only show you how you are not and how all people are not, and how all the world is not enlightened. "After All That" you are ready to start The Energy Enhancement Process.

The practices leading to stream entry are encapsulated in four factors:

Association with people of integrity is a factor for stream-entry. Listening to the true Dhamma is a factor for stream-entry. Appropriate attention is a factor for stream-entry. Practice in accordance with the Dhamma is a factor for stream-entry.

The psychopath and the Buddhist Icchantika


In Energy Enhancement we see that Psychopaths have blockages of the Heart creating a lack of empathy and blockages above the head creating a lack of conscience as the blockage cuts off the intuitional energy from the Soul Chakra or as it is called in buddhism, Dharma - these people have no souls. They are soulless Golems.

Usually these types of energy blockage are Implanted during previous lifetimes and sometimes in this lifetime in certain dark rituals. That is, in previous lifetimes we actually wanted to join the dark side!!

Removing the blockages of the heart and above the head are major steps forward on the path of Energy Enhancement - the Karma Clearing Process.

"In the Mahaparinirvana Sutra the "icchantikas" (i.e., a species of being who can never attain Buddhahood) are deeply evil.  They don't believe that all beings have the Buddha-nature. (They call them, "White Trash" or as Kissinger called them, "Useless Eaters".)  They wish to harm others.  They take pride in their twisted views, and live lives contrary to the Buddhist precepts.  Especially, the icchantikas conceal the evils they have done some of which are grave in nature.  Nor are they capable of repenting their sins.  As far as their spiritual capacity is concerned, they have "no capacity for saddharma" (true Dharma). The Buddha refers to icchantikas as "the incurable ones."  In fact, the Buddha it could be said regards them as the spiritual dead.  In this respect, killing an icchantika is of no karmic consequence according to the Buddha.


"For example, such actions as digging the ground, mowing the grass, felling trees, and cutting up corpses do not call forth karmic returns. Killing an icchantika comes within the same category. No karmic results ensue" (T. vol. 12, p. 460b,11.17–19).


As far as Bodhisattvas are concerned, they still have great compassion for all beings, including even the anti-human like icchantikas.  In this context, the great compassion the Bodhisattvas demonstrates is intended to remove the non-beneficial character of sentient beings which prevents them from actualizing their Buddha-nature.  In fact, a Bodhisattva might even resolve to be reborn in hell, where icchantikas are being tortured, perchance they should repent in which case the Bodhisattva will be there to preach various dharmas to them “so that there may arise in them a moment of good roots”!  As we can see, despite the noble resolve of the Bodhisattvas to even go to hell to save them, icchantikas prove to be tough nuts to crack.  By and large, they are incurable.


Turning our attention to the modern world, it is not difficult to lump the icchantika up with the psychopath who lacks any measure of conscience and empathy—a person whom we might characterize as being “cold and calculating”.  One troubling aspect of a psychopath is that they seem to be quite sane.  But in reality they are anything but sane.  They have an insatiable appetite to be in positions of power in order to control others and psychically harm them.  Virtually, every hierarchical system, every  organisation, every government department, every international corporation, every think tank is riddled with psychopaths.  Probably, the first recorded evidence of psychopathy came at the beginning of the 19th century.


"Pinel (1801) described the case of a young, spoiled adolescent who, in a fit of rage, threw a maid into a pit.  In the subsequent court case, Pinel made the plea that although the young man had no symptoms of a mental disorder, his behavior was so purposeless that he had to be considered insane.  Pinel uses two terms to describe this kind of insanity: manie sans delire and folise raisonante, which could be translated into modern English as "mental disease without symptoms of mental disease" and "sane insanity."  Cleckley (1941) reached the same conclusions: the behavior of psychopaths is so maladaptive that it can only be the manifestation of a hidden insanity” (Thomas A. Widiger, Dimensional models of personality disorders: refining the research agenda for DSM-V).


Today, more and more attention is being given to the dangers of psychopathy where in the world of business and politics, CEOs and political leaders are often discovered to be psychopaths.  A psychopath, in fact, can destroy a business or ruin a nation.  But they can also infect others with their psychopathy leading them to perdition, so to speak.  Being seduced, for example, by a rationalization for a preemptive military strike that will undoubtedly kill thousands of innocent people or the need to suspend civil liberties in the wake of a terrorist attack, is to have fallen under the spell of a psychopath or an “interspecies predator energy blockage” as Dr. Robert Hare, who specializes in the study of psychopathy, defines them.


How the psychopath gains power over those with a conscience is perhaps more disturbing.  One of the most troubling of modern ironies is that those who believe they have a conscience often permit themselves to be undermined and ruled by psychopaths who have no conscience.  This, it could be argued, is the main cause of every form of modern injustice and abuse culminating in the holocaust during the second World War.  


From a Buddhist perspective, those who believe they have a conscience might be slowly and imperceptibly transforming into icchantikas, that is, psychopaths.  They are like someone driving the getaway car for a gangster who, while never actually committing the bank robbery, was nevertheless an important element in the success of the robbery.   The Buddha in the Mahaparinirvana Sutra lays out how the non-icchantika becomes an icchantika. 


“[O]riginally worshipped the three jewels and various gods, but has changed since then, and now worships his own desires [instead].  He loved to give alms in the past but has now become miserly.  He was by nature moderate in his diet, but has now turned gluttonous.  He had an ingrained aversion for evils, but now looks on them with sympathy.  He was born filial and esteemed his parents, but now he has no thought of respect for his father and mother.”


Unlike the time of the Buddha, the modern age has learned diverse ways to turn the average non-icchantika into a committed icchantika/psychopath because psychopaths are in positions of authority—and because they’ve made the system that will insure the dominance of the psychopathic character.  


In spite of this, it has to be kept in mind that a psychopath’s greatest fear is the fear of being found out.  This especially occurs when the psychopath can no longer manipulate the information that insures his dominance; which reveals him to be an interspecies predator energy blockage."


It is interesting that psychopaths are called icchantika, just as in the Bhagavad Gita, Krishna calls these types of people "Demons"




Energy Enhancement Client 6.
Well our client said that she, her sister and brother had been sexually abused by her mother, father and grandfather when they were children. Her brother and sister were heroin drug addicts and had tried to commit suicide. She had been attracted to psychology and psychiatry at university and was now a Senior Psychiatrist in charge of an Institution working with abused children. Her psychiatry had obviously saved her life but not sufficiently and thus she came to Energy Enhancement.

Obviously she had absorbed a lot of trauma and pain which needed to be grounded but interestingly she found when she started the Energy Enhancement Karma Clearing Process an explanation of the reasons as to why she had been given parents like this.

It is good for the ego to admit that in many previous lifetimes we have done bad things. We are all like this, but in this lifetime we have decided we want to do better.

Hitler can be forgiven. The prodigal son is welcomed back onto the path of light. Yet all these bad things we have done we have to learn how to forgive ourselves. Thus the Energy Enhancement Karma Clearing and Forgiveness process.


Only when we have forgiven ourselves, can we learn how to forgive others. We do this by learning how to ground all these negative karmic energies so that we do not have to live through this karma physically. We can remove it energetically using the Energy Enhancement Techniques before it manifests into your life as pain and traumatic experiences.


It says in the Hindu Bible, a conversation between God or Krishna, and Arjuna or the good part of you, in the Baghavad Gita Chapter 16


Persons of demonic or psychopathic nature do not know what to do and what not to do. They neither have purity nor good conduct nor truthfulness. (16.07)
Psychopaths say that the world is unreal, without a substance, without a God, and without an order. The world is caused by lust (or Kaama) alone and nothing else. (16.08)
Adhering to this view these psychopathic lost souls, with small intellect and cruel deeds, are born as enemies for the destruction of the world. (16.09)
Filled with insatiable desires, hypocrisy, pride, and arrogance; holding wrong views due to delusion; psychopaths act with impure motives. (16.10)
Obsessed with great anxiety until death, considering sense gratification as their highest aim, convinced that this (sense pleasure) is everything, (16.11)
Bound by hundreds of ties of desire and enslaved by lust and anger; they strive to obtain wealth by unlawful means for the fulfillment of desires. Psychopaths think: (16.12)
This has been gained by me today, I shall fulfill this desire, this is mine and this wealth also shall be mine in the future; (16.13)
That enemy has been slain by me, and I shall slay others also. I am the Lord. I am the enjoyer. I am successful, a powerful siddha or black magician, and happy; (16.14)
I am rich and born in a noble family. I am the greatest. I shall perform sacrifice, I shall give charity to show off, and I shall rejoice. Thus deluded by ignorance; (16.15)
Bewildered by many fancies; entangled in the net of delusion; addicted to the enjoyment of sensual pleasures; psychopaths fall into a foul hell. (16.16)
Self-conceited, stubborn, filled with pride and intoxication of wealth; they perform Yajna, religious sacrifice, only in name, for show, and not according to scriptural injunction. (16.17)
Clinging to egoism, power, arrogance, lust, and anger; these psychopathic malicious people hate Me (who dwells) in their own body and others' bodies. (16.18)
I hurl these psychopathic haters, cruel, sinful, and mean people of the world, into the wombs of other demons or psychopaths again and again. (16.19)
O Arjuna, entering the wombs of demons or psychopaths birth after birth, the deluded ones sink to the lowest hell without ever attaining Me. (16.20)
Lust, anger, and greed are the three gates of hell leading to the downfall (or bondage) of THE Jeeva personality. Therefore, one must (learn to) give up these three. (16.21)

Look at 16.19 and 20 again.

I hurl these haters, cruel, sinful, and mean people of the world, into the wombs of demons or psychopaths again and again. (16.19)

O Arjuna, entering the wombs of demons or psychopaths birth after birth, the deluded ones sink to the lowest hell without ever attaining Me. (16.20)


And in the Energy Enhancement Karma Clearing Process, without any prompting by me, this is what client 6  said...

Black Magic, Sex and Sado Masochism Couple Tantra heart.1500 years ago she was a beautiful lady healer with long blond hair who was on the path of righteousness. A bad guy saw her and through implanting her with a sexual implant blockage was able to make her fall in love with him. This bad guy turned her onto the dark side of the force and for 10 lifetimes this guy led her into bad paths of black magic, sex and sado-masochism, abusing many different people. Then, as happens to all on the dark side she was defeated (LITERALLY DE-FEETED, her base chakra was broken and implanted by another bad guy) And she entered into 100 lifetimes of sexual abuse, serving as a sex slave and as a spiritual battery for the bad guy who implanted her.

She was learning why she had been given these experiences. Karma, the law of consequences, says we have been given the free will to learn the consequences of taking the wrong path. In reality we are only allowed the freedom of making the right choice. Everything which has a beginning has an end.

And further, with Energy Enhancement, how to totally heal the entire stuation, how to dissolve the negative karmic energies which were throwing her into these hells time and time again. How to remove all the implants which were turning her into a batttery and not allowing her to generate the energy necessary to get her out of this black hole pit she was in. How to cut off all connections with the Dark Side, "seal the door which evil dwells" so that they could not attract her into bad ways again and become independant and free of all negative influences. How to gain infinite positive energy from the side of Light and goodness and purpose and will. She was learning how necessary it is to stay away from evil and to cleave to the good.

If you desire anything on this planet remember, you cannot take anything with you when you die except your evolution. So please evolve through the kindness of those sent to this planet to help you. They are here in every generation, just for you. This is the promise of the Baghavad Gita.

Satchidananda Meditation LionMy teacher, Swami Satchidananda said that when he was young he could touch people and take away their cancer, he could touch people and take away their heart disease yet after three years he noticed that these same people were coming back with the same problems. He realised that unless they changed their minds also, it was not possible to heal them permanently. They had to learn to do it for themselves. So he started a program for yoga and meditation and if the people were good, perhaps a little bit of healing could enter from the side.

Once a Swede came to Swami Satchidananda with a grave abdominal problem. Swami said, come to the Ashram for 6 months and learn Yoga and meditation and practise every day and your problem will be solved. So after 6 months the guy came to swami and said, the problem has not gone away. Swami asked if he had done everything, the yoga, the meditation and had practised every day and the guy said yes. So Swami moved his hand close to the abdomen and made a catching and pulling motion with his right hand as though he was pulling something out of him. He then asked him how he felt and the guy said the pain had gone. It never returned.

Roshi Hogen Daido YamahataI remember Zen Master Hogen when I was with him in The Greek island of Lesbos acting as his general factotem and dogsbody. We lived together in the same house for two weeks and one night I had a dream. I was lying on a stone slab as a dead King.

Hogen came to me and leant over my body from the hips and sucked out my right eye. He cleaned it with his mouth, took it out, polished it playfully and then put it back into his mouth, leaned over me again and spat it back into my eye.

The next day I found out that Hogen had done something very stupid. He had put some strong eucalyptus oil, Olbas Oil, on his finger and put it into his right eye. So, the students cleaned it out with water and he wore an eye patch, like a pirate, for the rest of the time there. It must have been very painful for him yet these things are done for the benefit of the students. Thus the Master from time immemorial has absorbed the Karma of the Students.

I asked Zen Master Hogen what he had done in past lifetimes and he said he had been a Guiness (Karma) maker. Now in this lifetime he was drinking all the Guiness. He was absorbing and transmuting all the karma. And this was the symbolism of his students giving him a can of Guiness every time They met him.

Swami Satchidananda told me that Yoga was the gaining of Psychic Vision and when necessary the blockages of the students are removed.

Energy Enhancement SatchidanandThere are many examples gleaned from many experiences and books from the age of 14 when I started to practise Yoga. From the age of 21 when I started to read spiritual books and train with the National Federation of Spiritual Healers of Great Britain and then later to become a Yoga teacher and teach those with Multiple Sclerosis in my local class and at Ickwell Bury a Yoga Foundation for Health run by Howard Kent near London. I had to stop the class after a while, they all got well.

And last but not least my training and experiences with Zen Master Hogen Daido Yamahata and Swami Satchidananda - two enlightened saints and Siddhas whose whole lives have been devoted towards the benefit of everyone who met them. Swami Satchidananda has now passed on at the age of 89 in 2002 but you can meet Hogen, student of the famous Zen Master Tangen Harada Roshi, in Japan at his Zen Temple on the slopes of Mount Fuji or at his Ashram in Australia.

In Energy Enhancement we teach you how to do it for yourself. We provide a field of positive energy to help the process called the Buddhafield and from time to time, if you need a little help, we give it. But we are merely midwives or guides, and it is you who must walk every step of the way by yourselves and when you have done it you must also know that you have been carried every step by goodness and mercy.

What makes you think that you have done anything? Only the Ego. And yet it is true, with the collaboration of infinity, you have done everything by yourself.



It is inherent in the Purpose of God as exemplified in the Nature of Humanity that Humanity Evolve, become Enlightened.

My point is, that the purpose of breeding human individuals, and, indeed, the very essence of the true purpose for the existence of those persons, is the role of mankind, as distinct from all lower expressions of life, in the creation of the kind of future which can come into being only as the means of creating the purpose for the existence of mankind in this universe.

The expression of that intended mission, is to be read from the evidence of the specific distinction of all persons from all other presently known forms of life. That is to say, that the distinction of mankind is the creative powers of the human individual which exist in no other known species of living creature. This distinction is also expressed by the fact of the efficient immortality inherent in those qualities of
discovered ideas which live on, efficiently uplifting the human potential of society, even long after the author of the discovery is deceased.

The fact of history is, that whereas the other living species reproduce their own biological likeness, the human mind's standard function is the production of discoveries of efficient universal principles, which successively discover and use higher and greater flux densities of energy both physically and Spiritually.

From the energy of fire discovered by Prometheus to the greater and more intense fires of Nuclear Fission and Fusion.

From the Prometheus Fire burning of food within the body to the access to Kundalini Electric Fire which is similar to Fission and the access to the Central Spiritual Sun which is like Solar Fusion.

Principles of the type whose embedded intention is typified Physically by man's leap from Earth to the extended development in nearby space and Spiritually through access through spiritual projection to the chakras outside the body of the Antahkarana. All progress in physical science, spiritual science and in great Classical artistic compositions attests to this fact.

We breed people because their development is a key to the intention of that universe which we inhabit.

So, the human sexual act's ultimate implication is the perpetuation and advancement of an intention whose assigned consequence is the production of new people, whose existence will perpetuate the specific work of the human species, which is the work of qualitative progress of mankind's condition and progress, and, thus, the advancement of the specifically unique creative-mental powers of the human individual's ability to serve a yearning intention consistent with mankind's leap from the bounds of our Earth, to colonize within our Solar System and beyond, to play a part in the giving and receiving of higher and higher levels of spiritual energy which embodies the evolution of the Universe.

It is not the relevant sexual act which is the purpose, but only an essential means. It is an act which is sustained by the commitment of persons to joy in the fulfillment of that embedded intention of our species.

Once that much is stated, a further point of insight should have overtaken us.

The customary depravity which dominated most of the human cultures with which we are familiar from known history, is the tendency for "zero growth" in most European, and also other cultures known to us from the past from Babylon to Ancient China - all ruled by the Dark Side.

This feature of such depraved sorts of cultures, is commonly expressed consciously as the assertion that the universe is entropic or that it cannot evolve, at least implicitly so, and that man has no special powers of creation, but rather must be content to live, as the fabled Olympian Zeus of Aeschylus' drama of Prometheus, or, the notorious Aristotle who forbade God Himself to continue to create, once the initial act of creating a universe were done.

To make this point clearer, take the case of a frankly Satanic belief in "zero technological growth," as illustrated by the image of the Satan-like Olympian Zeus of Aeschylus' Prometheus Bound, who bans the use of "fire" by mankind, in order to ensure mankind's degradation to the likeness of those who are condemned to live as like creatures, created to be vampirised, without actually manifest human souls, who remain committed to do as their fathers and grandfathers before them.

Contrary to what are thus defined as the pro-Satanic devotions of the so-called "environmentalists," the existence of mankind is locked up within the notion of mankind as a species distinguished, in nature, by a creative impulse mustered to fulfilment of future missions for improvement of our existence in our universe.

Whether expressed directly, or by relevant contributions to that ultimate effect, the life of the individual has an inherently implicit mission, to fulfill the mission of development of the universe.

Thus, all types of moral depravity expressed by societies, have their root in the avoidance of the obligation of a creativity which is eternally hostile to a policy of zero growth. It is the acceptance of the practice of that evil which is the worship of the notion of anti-evolutionary perpetual entropy, which is the essential root of evil within societies and their cultures in known history of the world thus far. It is that depravity of such a public policy which engenders evil in the practice of mankind, and thus turns the intention of man's destiny into a force of depravity in such included ways as the sexual abuse of children.

For thousands of years there has been a scientific battle between the reductionist modelers who plagiarise and debase, in order to stifle progress, the work of the original scientists whose aim is human progress and evolution.

The real scientists know that this planet can support more human beings only through advanced science which exponentially increases, through desalination of water the food and industrial capability of humanity and through fusion plasma physics the ability to transmute elements into metallic and elemental commodities necessary to produce technology allowing humanity to live and evolve in plenty and not in poverty and need, on this planet.

The most convenient illustration of this sort of method, modeling without any physical basis, consciously debasing science, is the comparable case of the use of that fraud by Dark Side Agent of the Persian Oligarchy - who poisoned Alexander the Great - Aristotle, and his follower Euclid, in crafting what the great Bernhard Riemann exposed, from the outset of his 1854 habilitation dissertation, as a physically fraudulent tradition in the popular teaching of mathematics. Such was the ancient origin of modern positivism.

Similarly, it was intended to use mere mathematics as an alternative to actual physical science, as used by modern, anti-science, mathematical positivists, which has, in strict truth, no intrinsic competence for defining the principles of physical science, a corrupt notion of physical science which has been elevated to the reputation of science's being considered as merely a matter of mathematics, as has been done by, among others, positivists in the train of Ernst Mach, David Hilbert, and the unspeakably evil Bertrand Russell and his tribe.

The positivists have modeled using mere mathematical and comparable formulas, which contain no actual principle, but only mathematical descriptions, as a substitute for physical science, as the case of Agent Lord Bertrand Russell and his present followers typifies such an intentionally deceitful practice most luridly.

The Banking and Slave Trading Venetian Oligarchy secret agent Paolo Sarpi's fraudulent prank of modeling without any physical basis is the root of all currently leading trans-Atlantic, systemically moral corruption in the matters of science, and social policy more broadly. At its bottom, positivism has been a method of corrupting social control of targeted species of entire societies, such as that first installed in England under King James I.

This installation of King James 1 was recorded in the 2012 movie "Anonymous" by Roland Emmerich about the struggle for the succession after Elizabeth the First. It is also recorded by Stansford Scholar, Webster Griffin Tarpley, in his free book, "Against Oligarchy", about the Secret History of Western Civilisation.

In this 2012 movie, "Anonymous", it is speculated that Shakespeare was the Earl of Oxford, the bastard son of the Queen - he who was the natural selection for King after Good Queen Bess died. The Earl of Oxford was the real Shakespeare who wrote the plays and then broadcast them through his paid minion Shakespeare in order to propagandise against this installation of James The First by advisors to the Queen, Venetian Agents the Cecil Family - the Lord Salisburys whose family has guided England for the last 600 years at least.

The Earl of Oxford/Shakespeare also wrote the, "Merchant of Venice" to propagandise against Banking and Slave Trading Venetian Oligarchy  Usury and, "Othello" to propagandise against the normal Venetian Secret Agent methodologies of reputation ruining and assassination by Venetian Agent Iago. Shakespearean critic A. C. Bradley said that "evil has nowhere else been portrayed with such mastery as in the evil character of Iago." The mystery surrounding Iago’s actual motives which continues to intrigue readers and fuel scholarly debate is solved by the Venetian Link that Iago was meant to represent Venetian Agent, Abbé Antonio S. Conti.

Lord Salisbury at that time had a hunch back and was parodied in Shakespeare's play, "Richard the Third". The Cecil Family was in the pay of the Venetians whose aim was to subtly take over England and who succeeded with the installation of William of Orange in 1730 and the founding of the Venetian Party. The Cecils founded their Foreign Policy think tank of ALL SOULS COLLEGE at Oxford University around 1450 which later metastatised into the Milner Group which plotted the start of World Wars One and Two, then the Royal Institute of International Affairs - RIIA - at Chatham House in London then the Council of Foreign Relations - CFR - and the Bilderburgers.

Webster Griffin Tarpley, in his free book, "Against Oligarchy" states that King James was, ironically, the emblematic, if essentially half-witting figure of an official royal, empiricist theology, a theology of sorts which has administered the corrupting Venetian tradition, derived from their families who descended through the Roman Empire from the Satanic, Moloch driven Babylonian Empire, of those high priests such as the hoaxster Galileo Galilei.

After the swindler Galileo, and his follower, the swindler Descartes, there was a "perfected" succession of expressions of the alleged "principles" underlying imperial theology, a body of evidence supplied by such cases as that of the science-hating, Venetian Oligarchic Agent hoaxster Abbé Antonio S. Conti. In hindsight, this Conti is to be regarded, otherwise, according to rare copies of portraits, as the ugliest face known to contemporaries of his apprentice, Oligarchic Agent Voltaire.

Depraved creatures such as Banking and Slave Trading British Empire/Venetian Oligarchy Agents philosophers and economists John Locke, Adam Smith, paid by Prime Minister and Head of the British East India Company, Lord Shelburne and his head of MI6, the monster Jeremy Bentham, are typical of the kindred human refuse to be listed in the same collection.

The common, a-prioristic commitment of the crude materialists, the Aristoteleans, paid followers of the Satanic Babylonian Secret Agent, Aristotle the Poisoner, Assassinator of Alexander the Great, and the modern mathematical positivists, for example, is that they deny the existence of the universe and of God, demonstrating that fact by the means of substituting actual or merely fancied appearances, such as mere sense-certainties, for the reality of the universe, thus excluding the existence of any actually universal principles.

The discovery of the geometry of Bernhard Riemann, for example, led to the recognition of the systemic nature of the fraud above expressed by any attempted separation of space, time, and matter into separate, fixed dimensions.

That discovery of mathematical genius Bernhard Riemann led to the recognition of a modern physical science premised on the experimentally validated notion of physical chemistry, rather than mere physics, and to the notion of physical space-time developed by the circles of Genius Albert Einstein.

This discovery of mathematical genius Bernhard Riemann laid bare for all to see, centuries of the efforts of Babylonian/Venetian obfuscation of Science whose aim is Austerity of all the people and the Oligarchic, "Principle of Poverty" or Austerity, in order to continue to rule the World.

For example: the notion of Euclidean geometry premised on Aristotelean a-priorism, had always been an anti- scientific hoax, as had been the same hoax represented by such British Empire/Venetian Agent frauds as Newton who plagirised and debased the Integral Calculus of Liebniz, and the post-Leibniz British Empire/Venetian Agent frauds of de Moivre, D'Alembert, Leonhard Euler, Euler's dupe Lagrange, Laplace, and the caught-out plagiarist of a crucial discovery by Niels Abel, Augustin Cauchy.

Truth is what both the implicit and actual positivists, such as the Aristoteleans, the "materialists" generally, and the modern positivists, prohibit.

A materialist's world-view, like that of any Aristotelean or modern positivists, is the denial of a higher purpose for mankind's existence, the process of generation of an achievement of a higher goal than had existed in practice earlier. The effort of the individual for the purpose of achieving that contribution to the universe we experience, is the one and only proof of a true human morality. Essentially, nothing truly an achievement of an individual life lived is accomplished in any different way.

Mathematics without any physical basis, sheer imagination, is the fantasy of Computer modelling of real systems of the world which because the model cannot be accurate, and indeed is designed not to be accurate, as it makes false predictions which are designed to fool and steal from humanity.

The areas of recent fantasy Computer Modeling which have been proven to be intentionally falsified are:

1. The Oligarchic Agents "Global Warming" and "Climate Change" models supported by, "Peer Reviewed" false science has been exposed by the whistleblower exposure of the emails of the Global Warming Scientists where it was confirmed that Global Warming Science was false. Global Warming whose almost achieved aim is to reduce, in a sort of Genocide, the technology of humanity and bring in Austerity so that the world can support less people. Where terawatts of Nuclear Electricity are needed to de-salinate water, grow food in the deserts, and through air conditioning and heating allow humanity to live and work in the tropics as well as in Siberia.

Instead we have the Eugenocidal and Malthusian aim of the elite of Zero Population Growth and a constant world population of 200 Millions - the current population to be reduced by starvation, false flag rent-a-mob terrorism, rent-a-mob politics, thermonuclear war, and laboratory grown weaponised diseases.

2. The Computer Modeling of the intentionally created false science of Economics, whose aim is the stealing of wealth from ordinary humanity, thus stopping their evolution and reducing their level to the forelock tugging "Yes Sir" of the neofeudal serf or slave.

Where the false use of money in the Gambling Casino of wall Street and service industries - calling the money made in these industries as profit, instead of the real profit of the physical production of food and useful technology to enhance the lives and purpose of all humanity.

The false tenets of the "Science of Monetary Economics" and its consequent Modelling in the Computers of every Government in the world - certified by the believed fantasy of peer reviewed professors of Keynsianism and Monetarism, have allowed the intentional corruption of stealing of trillions of dollars from the worlds economies through the clever corrupt trick of Bubbles, which since the South Sea Bubble of 1720 have been a regular yearly event culminating in the recent toxic derivatives housing derivatives bubble of 2006 - 2007.

Some families and individuals in control of the economy, through having the power to remove the Glass-Steagal Act, this time have stolen four trillions of dollars out of the economy through as always, knowing when to invest and when to get out of the mortgage industry, boosted and bubbled by toxic derivatives.

The bubbles are due to continue because nothing has been done to remove the intentionally corrupt banking industry - see the 2012 Libor Scandal, the 2012 Mexican Drug money laundering Scandals of HSBC (Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank was originally set up to launder laudanum - the profits of Opium Shipped into China from British India made possible by the British-Chinese Opium Wars fought to attain the Free Trade ability of the British-Venetian Empire to be the World's biggest drug runners) and 2008 Wells Fargo where profits of trillions of dollars attracted fines of 300 millions of dollars and no jail time. Also through the normal method of bankruptcy as the aim is to continue to steal everything.

It has been stated that Bilderburg Banker Goldman Sachs agent minions like Lagarde, Monti and others now control the policies of all Europe and the USA on the path of Venetian Bankster World Occupation.

The real intention of human existence, as distinct from other living species, is the continuity of progress of man's development and work on behalf of works which partake of a notion akin to "the greater glory of God." It is a glory which depends in large degree, in particular, on men and women who have grown old, but also specially matured in their creative powers. It is the production of the development of the intellectual and Spiritual powers of creativity in the human individual which is the mission which expresses the purpose of the conception of the birth and development of the new human individual.

We call this evolution, "Enlightenment" which for thousands of years has been the most perfect aim of Evolved Humanity achieved through the Buddhafield of the Illuminated Enlightened together with Meditation.










The ancient Greeks distinguished the Destructive (Aidêlon) Fire, associated with Hades in the Center of the Earth (Aidês), from the Creative Fire of the Sun, associated with Hephaistos, the Divine Smith or Craftsman.

In Orphic cosmologies, as in many others, a Divine Craftsman is born from the Cosmic Egg which is an opened out Antahkarana with energies flowing down one side of a column of energy twixt heaven and earth into the center of the earth and up the other side from the Center of the earth into the central Spiritual Sun or is responsible for opening it.

Similarly the Two Masonic Columns, Joachim and Boaz denote the Second Initiation of Energy Enhancement also.

 Similarly, in Indian tradition the Craftsman Kâla is the Sun, the Golden Embryo (Fire), who upholds Earth, Sea and Sky (Earth, Water, Air).

Naturally Hephaistos, the Divine Smith, is closely connected with Creative Fire - the Central Spiritual Sun , and His name is often used as a synonym for Fire. Plato (Cratylus 407c) explains that Hephaistos' name comes from Phaistos, "Lord of Light" (Phaeos Histora)

Eliade (Forge & Crucible) argues that alchemy had its origin in the ancient Craft of the Smith, which combined religion, magic and metallurgy. For example, in the Greek tradition, the Daktuloi (Dactyls), Telkhines (Telchines) and Kabeiroi (Cabiri) are magic-working divine smiths; all come from underground to assist the Great Mother Rhea (associated with Fire"). Of the Daktuloi ("Fingers") it is said that the Right-hand ones - the flow coming down the Antahkarana from the Central Spiritual Sun are smiths and the Left-hand are magicians - the flow coming up the Antahkarana from the Kundalini Chakra (goêtes) - ENERGY CIRCULATION.

This 250,000 years old secret of the magicians comes from Alchemical VITRIOL, - an Acronym of a Latin Guided meditation, in particular the, "Rectificando" R of VITRIOL which says to change the direction of the energy from down from the center of the Universe to Up from the Center of the Earth, thus creating the Chinese Alchemical Supra galactic orbit of Energy Enhancement.

"I am now in the last week of the course and I feel like a totally different person. I have regained myself and have been given from nothing having no psychic vision at all at the start of the energy enhancement course, a clarity of psychic vision that is breathtaking."

"As we practiced on each other with Energy Enhancement Level 4 techniques - Energy Connections and the Mastery of Relationships and How to remove Energy Blockages and Implants from our Students - we came very quickly to realise this. I could literally feel the energy moving inside each chakra as the other person worked within me from several meters away and when I worked on the other person I could see me projecting energy to them and could see where the blockages were within their chakras.

I could force the energy from my centres into their centres and clean their centre bringing the energy full circle back to me. You could tell the state of their chakras by the amount of energy returning to your own centre and this was achieved by mind power only.

Before I came here to learn Energy Enhancement Satchi said he would teach me to do it in this way and I was sceptical about this claim. I could never envision me having psychic vision, but I have now, I can now do astonishingly powerful Reiki sessions on people without going any where near them and distance healing over any distance is a piece of cake, incredible stuff."


"I am totally de-stressed and have expanded in every way. I feel stronger and fitter and much more mentally agile than I have ever felt in my life. The fog and confusion of life has gone and I feel that I have just received the inside information on everything. I am ready for anything and am wide awake. I am full of the most incredible energy imaginable and have Energy Enhancement Reiki that is so powerful it staggers me. I know a thing or two about Reiki and had a very strong Reiki connection before I got here, now I have a connection that is beyond description and I have yet to undergo the second initiation this week and then the masters. I have opted to take this as an extra and for anyone who is interested, I believe this is beyond anything you will ever experienced anywhere."

I am now equipped with life tools and healing tools that one only dreams of and there is nothing out there in the world that will ever faze me again. I am absolutely delighted that I decided to come here, because this experience has changed me, for the good of me and for all those that I will touch when I leave here. I am so excited and can’t wait to start exploring my new found talents"

Ahimsa or Harmlessness - The Greatest Spiritual Law to Remove Negative Karmic Mass and Energy Blockages





THE RAPE OF THE MIND: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing, by Joost A. M. Meerloo, M.D., Instructor in Psychiatry, Columbia University Lecturer in Social Psychology, New School for Social Research, Former Chief, Psychological Department, Netherlands Forces, published in 1956, World Publishing Company. (Out of Print)














Here are some techniques totalitarian regimes use, according to Meerloo 1:

The Strategy of Terror : "There exist several milder forms of mass terror, for instance, THE STRATEGY OF NO POLITICAL
REST." (See FEAR/HYSTERIA: It's "One minute to midnight"

The Purging Rituals : "Cleaning out the higher echelons of government is an old historic habit. The struggle between
fathers and sons, between the older and the younger generation, became ritualized far back in prehistoric times. [...]
In Totalitaria, the killing and purging ritual is part of the mechanism of government, and it serves not only a
symbolic but also a very real function for the dictator. He must eliminate all those he has bypassed and double-crossed
in his ruthless climb to power, lest their resentments and frustrated rage break out, endangering his position or even
his life.

The purge reflects another characteristic of life in Totalitaria. It dramatizes the fiction that the party is always on
the alert to keep itself pure and clean. Psychiatry has demonstrated that the cleanliness compulsion in neurotic
individuals is actually a displaced defense against their own inner rage and hostility."

Wild Accusation and Black Magic : "The more fear there is in a society, the more guilt each individual member of the
society feels, the more need there is for internal scapegoats and external enemies. INTERNAL CONFUSION LOOKS FOR

In Totalitaria, the air is full of gossip, calumny, and rumor. Any accusation, even if it is false, has a greater
influence on the citizenry than subsequent vindication. Bills of particulars, made out of whole cloth are manufactured
against innocents, especially against former leaders, who have been able to develop some personal esteem and loyalty
among their friends and followers. "

Spy Mania : "Projecting blame onto others reinforces each citizen's sense of participation in the totalitarian
community and stills the nagging internal voice demanding that he act as a self-responsible individual. The myth of
external plotting also increases the individual citizen's feeling of dependence and immaturity. Now only his
dictatorial leader can protect him from the evil world outside -- a world which is described to him as a vast zoo,
inhabited by atomic dragons and hydrogen monsters. "

The Strategy of Criminalization: "Flowery catchwords, such as "historical necessity," help the individual to
rationalize immorality and evil into morality and good. We see here the great corruption of civilized standards.
In his strategy of criminalization, the totalitarian dictator destroys the conscience of his followers, just as he has
destroyed his own. "

Verbocracy and Semantic Fog -- Talking the People into Submission : "The multiform use of words in DOUBLE TALK serves
as an attack on our logic, that is, an attack on our understanding of what monolithic dictatorship really is. Hear,
hear the nonsense: "Peace is war and war is peace! Democracy is tyranny and freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength!
Virtue is vice and truth is a lie." So says the Ministry of Truth in George Orwell's grim novel, "1984." [...] Instead
of aiming at true understanding, people listen to thoughtless repetition, which gives them THE DELUSION OF

Logocide : "The trick is to replace a disagreeable image though the substance remains the same. The totalitarians
consequently have to fabric a hate language in order to stir up the mass emotions. " etc, etc


The first part of this book is devoted to various torture techniques used to make man a meek conformist. In addition to actual
political occurrences, attention is called to some ideas born in the laboratory and to the drug techniques that facilitate brainwashing. The last chapter deals with the subtle psychological mechanisms of mental submission.


The purpose of the second part of this book is to show various aspects of political and non-political strategy used to
change the feelings and thoughts of the masses, starting with simple advertising and propaganda, then surveying
psychological warfare and actual cold war, and going on to examine the means used for internal streamlining of man's
thoughts and behavior. Part Two ends with an intricate exmination of how one of the tools of emotional fascination and
attack -- the weapon of fear -- is used and what reactions it arouses in men.


Only blind wishful thinking can permit us to believe that our own society is free from the insidious influences
mentioned in Part One. The fact is that they exist all around us, both on a political and a nonpolitical level and they
become as dangerous to the free way of life as are the aggressive totalitarian governments themselves.

Every culture institutionalizes certain forms of behavior that communicate and encourage certain forms of thinking and
acting, thus molding the character of its citizens. To the degree that the individual is made an object of constant
mental manipulation, to the degree that cultural institutions may tend to weaken intellectual and spiritual strength,
to the degree that knowledge of the mind is used to tame and condition people instead of educating them, to that degree
does the culture itself produce men and women who are predisposed to accept an authoritarian way of life. The man who
has no mind of his own can easily become the pawn of a would-be dictator.

It is often disturbing to see how even intelligent people do not have straight thinking minds of their own. The pattern
of the mind, whether toward conformity and compliance or otherwise, is conditioned rather early in life.

In his important social psychological experiments with students, Asch found out in simple tests that there was a
yielding toward an ERRING MAJORITY opinion in more than a third of his test persons, and 75 percent of subjects
experimented upon agreed with the majority in varying degrees. In many persons the weight of authority is more
important than the quality of the authority.

If we are to learn to protect our mental integrity on all levels, we must examine not only those aspects of
contemporary culture which have to do directly with the struggle for power, but also those developments in our culture
which, by dulling the edge of our mental awareness or by taking advantage of our suggestibility, can lead us into the
mental death -- or boredom -- of totalitarianism. Continual suggestion and slow hypnosis in the wake of mechanical mass
communication promotes uniformity of the mind and may lure the public into the "happy era" of adjustment, integration,
and equalization, in which individual opinion is completely stereotyped.

When I get up in the morning, I turn on my radio to hear the news and the weather forecast. Then comes the pontifical
voice telling me to take aspirin for my headache. I have "headaches" occasionally (so does the world), and my headaches,
like everyone else's, come from the many conflicts that life imposes on me. My radio tells me not to think about either
the conflicts or the headaches. It suggests, instead, that I should retreat into that old magic action of swallowing a
pill. Although I laugh as I listen to this long-distance prescription by a broadcaster who does not know anything about
me or my headaches and though I meditate for a moment on man's servility to the magic of chemistry, my hand has already
begun to reach out for the aspirin bottle. After all, I do have a headache.

It is extremely difficult to escape the mechanically repeated suggestions of everyday life. Even when our critical mind
rejects them, they seduce us into doing what our intellect tells us is stupid.

The mechanization of modern life has already influenced man to become more passive and to adjust himself to ready-made
conformity. No longer does man think in personal values, following more his own conscience and ethical evaluations; he
thinks more and more in the values brought to him by mass media. Headlines in the morning paper give him his temporary
political outlook, the radio blasts suggestions into his ears, television keeps him in continual awe and passive
fixation. Consciously he may protest against these anonymous voices, but nevertheless their suggestions ooze into his

What is perhaps most shocking about these influences is that many of them have developed not out of man's
destructiveness, but out of his hope to improve his world and to make life richer and deeper. The very institutions man
has created to help himself, the very tools he has invented to enhance his life, the very progress he has made toward
mastery of himself and his environment -- all can become weapons of destruction.

The Public-Opinion Engineers

The conviction is steadily growing in our country that an elaborate propaganda campaign for either a political idea or
a deep-freeze can be successful in selling the public any idea or object one wants them to buy, any political figure one
wants them to elect. Recently, some of our election campaigns have been masterminded by the so-called public-opinion
engineers, who have used all the techniques of modern mass communication and all the contemporary knowledge of the
human mind to persuade Americans to vote for the candidate who is paying the public-relation men's salaries. The danger
of such high-pressure advertising is that the man or the party who can pay the most can become, temporarily at least,
the one who can influence the people to buy or to vote for what may not be in their real interest.

The specialists in the art of persuasion and the molding of public sentiment may try to knead man's mental dough with
all the tools of communication available to them: pamphlets, speeches, posters, billboards, radio programs, and T.V.
shows. They may water down the spontaneity and creativity of thoughts and ideas into sterile and streamlined clichés
that direct our thoughts even although we still have the illusion of being original and individual.

What we call the will of the people, or the will of the masses, we only get to know after such collective action is put
on the move, after the will of the people has been expressed either at the polls or in fury and rebellion. This
indicates again how important it is who directs the tools and machines of public opinion.

In the wake of such advertising and engineering of consent, the citizen's trust in his leaders may become shaken and
the populace may gradually grow more and more accustomed to official deceit. Finally, when people no longer have
confidence in any program, any position, and when they are unable to form intelligent judgments any more, they can be
more easily influenced by any demagogue or would-be dictator, whose strength appeals to their confusion and their
growing sense of dissatisfaction. Perhaps the worst aspect of this slick merchandising of ideas is that too often even
those who buy the experts, and even the opinion experts themselves, are unaware of what they are doing. They too are
swayed by the current catchword "management of public opinion," and they cannot judge any more the tools they have

The end never justifies the means; enough steps on this road can lead us gradually to Totalitaria.

At this very moment in our country, an elaborate research into motivation is going on, whose object is to find out why
and what the buyer likes to buy. What makes him tick? The aim is to bypass the resistance barriers of the buying
public. It is part of our paradoxical cultural philosophy to stimulate human needs and to stimulate the wants of the
people. Commercialized psychological understanding wants to sell to the pbulic, to the potential buyer, many more
products than he really wants to buy. In order to do this, rather infantile impulses have to be awakened, such as
sibling rivalry and neighbor envy, the need to have more and more sweets, the glamour of colors, and the need for more
and more luxuries.

The commercial psychologist teaches the seller how to avoid unpleasant associations in his advertising, how to
stimulate, unobtrusively, sex associations, how to make everything look simple and happy and successful and secure! He
teaches the shops how to boost the buyer's ego, how to flatter the customer.

The marketing engineers have discovered that our public wants the suggestion of strength and virility in their product.
A car must have more horse-power in order to balance feelings of inner weakness in the owner. A car must represent
one's social status and reputation, because without such a flag man feels empty. Advertising agencies dream of
"universitas advertensis," the world of glittering sham ideas, the glorification of "munus vult decipi," the
intensification of snob appeal, the expression of vulgar conspicuousness, and all this in order to push more sales into
the greedy mouths of buying babies. In our world of advertising, artificial needs are invented by sedulous sellers and
buyers. Here lies the threat of building up a sham world that can have a dangerous influence on our world of ideas.

This situation emphasizes the neurotic greed of the public, the need to indulge in private fancies at the cost of an
awareness of real values. The public becomes conditioned to meretricious values. Of course, a free public gradually
finds its defenses against slogans, but dishonesty and mistrust slip through the barriers of our consciousness and
leave behind a gnawing feeling of dissatisfaction. After all, advertising symbolizes the art of making people
dissatisfied with what they have. In the meantime it is evident man sustains a continual sneak attack on his better

In our epoch of too many noises and many frustrations, many "free" minds have given up the struggle for decency and
individuality. They surrender to the "Zeitgeist," often without being aware of it. Public opinion molds our critical
thoughts every day. Unknowingly, we may become opinionated robots. The slow coercion of hypocrisy, of traditions in our
culture that have a leveling effect -- these things change us. We crave excitement, hair-raising stories, sensation. We
search for situations that create superficial fear to cover up inner anxieties. We like to escape into the irrational
because we dislike the challenge of self-study and self-thinking. Our leisure time is occupied increasingly by
automatized activities in which we take no part: listening to piped-in words and viewing television sreens. We hurry
along with cars and go to bed with a sleeping pill. This pattern of living in turn may open the way for renewed sneak
attacks on our mind. Our boredom may welcome any seductive suggestion.

Psychological Warfare as a Weapon of Terror

Every human communication can be either a report of straight facts or an attempt to suggest things and situations as
they do not exist. Such distortion and perversion of facts strike at the core of human communication. The verbal battle
against man's concept of truth and against his mind seems to be ceaseless. For example, if I can instill in eventual
future enemies fear and terror and the suggestion of impending defeat, even before they are willing to fight, my battle
is already half won.

The strategy of man to use a frightening mask and a loud voice to utter lies in order to manipulate friend and foe is
as old as mankind. Primitive people used terror-provoking masks, magic fascination, or self-deceit as much as we use
loudly spoken words to convince others or ourselves. They use their magic paints and we our ideologies. Truly, we live
in an age of ads, propaganda, and publicity. But only under dictatorial and totalitarian regimes have such human habit
formations mushroomed into systematic psychologial assault on mankind.

The weapons the dictator uses against his own people, he may use against the outside world as well. For example, the
false confessions that divert the minds of dictator's subjects from their own real problems have still another effect:
they are meant (and sometimes they succeed in their aim) to terrorize the world's public. By strengthening the myth of
the dictator's omnipotence, such confessions weaken man's will to resist him. If a period of peace can be used to
soften up a future enemy, the totalitarian armies may be able in time of war to win a cheap and easy victory.
Totalitarian psychological warfare is directed largely toward this end. It is an effort to propagandize and hypnotize
the world into submission.

As far back as the early nineteenth century, Napoleon organized his Bureau de l'Opinion Publique in order to influence
the thinking of the French people. But it fell to the Germans to develop the manipulation of public opinion into a
huge, wellorganized machine. Their psychological warfare became aggressive strategy in peacetime, the so-called war
between wars. It was as a result of the Nazi attack on European morale and the Nazi war of nerves against their
neighbors that the other nations of the world began to organize their own psychological forces, but it was only in the
second half of the war that they were able to achieve some measure of success. The Germans had a long head start.

Hitler's psychological artillery was composed primarily of the weapon of fear. He had, for example, a network of fifth
columnists whose main job was to sow rumors and suspicions among the citizens of the countries against which he
eventually planned to fight. The people were upset not only by the spy system itself, but by the very rumor of spies.
These fifth columnists spread slogans of defeat and political confusion: "Why should France die for England?" Fear
began to direct people's actions. Instead of facing the real threat of German invasion, instead of preparing for it,
all of Europe shuddered at spy stories, discussed irrelevant problems, argued endlessly about scapegoats and
minorities. Thus Hitler used the rampant, vague fears to becloud the real issues, and by attacking his enemies' will to
fight, weakened them.

Not content with this strategic attack on the will to defend oneself, Hitler tried to paralyze Europe with the threat
of terror, not only the threat of bombing, destruction, and occupation, but also the psychological threat implicit in
his own boast of ruthlessness. The fear of an implacable foe makes man more willing to submit even before he has begun
to fight. Hitler's criminal acts at home -- the concentration camps, the gas chambers, the mass murders, the atmosphere
of terror throughout Germany -- were as useful in the service of his fear-instilling propaganda machinery as they were
a part of his delusions.

There is another important weapon the totalitarians use in their campaign to frighten the world into submission. This
is the weapon of psychological shock. Hitler kept his enemies in a state of constant confusion and diplomatic upheaval.
They never knew what this unpredictable madman was going to do next. Hitler was never logical, beause he knew that that
was what he was expected to be. Logic can be met with logic, while illogic cannot -- it confuses those who think
straight. The Big Lie and monotonously repeated nonsense have more emotional appeal in a cold war than logic and
reason. While the enemy is still searching for a reasonable counter-argument to the first lie, the totalitarians can
assault him with another.

Strategical mental shocks were the instruments the Nazis used when they entered the Rhineland in 1936 and when they
concluded their nonaggression pact with Russia in 1939. Stalin used the same strategy at the time of the Korean
invasion in 1950 (which he directed), as did the Chinese and the North Koreans when they accused the United States of
bacteriological warfare. By acting in this apparently irrational way, the totalitarians throw their logic-minded
enemies into confusion. The enemy feels compelled to deny the propagandistic lies or to explain things as they really
are, and these actions immediately put him in the weaker defensive position. For the galloping lie can never be
overtaken, it can only be overthrown.

The technique of psychological shock has still another effect. It may so confuse the mind of the individual citizen
that he ceases to make his own evaluations and begins to lean passively on the opinions of others. Hitler's destruction
of Warsaw and Rotterdam -- after the armistice in 1940, a complete violation of international law -- immobilized France
and shook the other democratic nations. Being in a paralysis of moral indignation, they became psychologically ill-
equipped to deal with the Nazi horrors.

Just as the technological advances of the modern world have refined and perfected the weapons of physical warfare, so
the advance in man's understanding of the manipulation of public opinion have enabled him to refine and perfect the
weapons of psychological warfare.

The Indoctrination Barrage

The continual intrusion into our minds of the hammering noises of arguments and propaganda can lead to two kinds of
reactions. It may lead to apathy and indifference, the I-don't-care reaction, or to a more intensified desire to study
and to understand. Unfortunately, the first reaction is the more popular one. The flight from study and awareness is
much too common in a world that throws too many confusing pictures to the individual. For the sake of our democracy,
based on freedom and individualism, we have to bring ourselves back to study again and again. Otherwise, we can become
easy victims of a well-planned verbal attack on our minds and consciences.

We cannot be enough aware of the continual coercion of our senses and minds, the continual suggestive attacks which may
pass through the intellectual barriers of insight. Repetition and Pavlovian conditioning exhaust the individual and may
seduce him ultimately to accept a truth he himself initially defied and scorned.

The totalitarians are very ingenious in arousing latent guilt in us by repeating over and over again how criminally the
Western world has acted toward innocent and peaceful people. The totalitarians may attack our identification with our
leaders by ridiculing them, making use of every man's latent critical attitude toward all leaders. Sometimes they use
the strategy of boredom to lull the people to sleep. They would like the entire Western world to fall into a hypnotic
sleep under the illusion of peaceful coexistence. In a more refined strategy, they would like to have us cut all our
ties of loyalty with the past, away from relatives and parents. The more you have forsaken them and their so-called
outmoded concepts, the better you will cooperate with those who want to take mental possession of you. Every political
strategy that aims toward arousing fear and suspicion tends to isolate the insecure individual until he surrenders to
those forces that seem to him stronger than his former friends.

And last but not least, let us not forget that in the battle of arguments those with the best and most forceful
strategy tend to win. The totalitarians organize intensive dialectical training for their subjects lest their doubts
get the better of them. They try to do the same thing to the rest of the world in a less obtrusive way.

We have to learn to encounter the totalitarians' exhausting barrage of words with better training and better
understanding. If we try to escape from these problems of mental defense or deny their complications, the cold war will
gradually be lost to the slow encroachment of words -- and more words.

The Enigma of Coexistence

Is it possible to coexist with a totalitarian system that never ceases to use its psychological artillery? Can a free
democracy be strong enough to tolerate the parasitic intrusion of totalitarianism into its rights and freedoms? History
tells us that many opposing and clashing ideologies have been able to coexist under a common law that assured tolerance
and justice. The church no longer burns its apostates.

Before the opposites of totalitarianism and free democracy can coexist under the umbrella of supervising law and mutual
good will, a great deal more of mutual understanding and tolerance wil have to be built up. The actual cold war and
psychological warfare certainly do not yet help toward this end.

To the totalitarian, the word "coexistence" has a different meaning than it has to us. The totalitarian may use it
merely as a catch-word or an appeaser. The danger is that the concept of peaceful coexistence may become a disguise,
dulling the awareness of inevitable interactions and so profiting the psychologically stronger party. Lenin spoke about
the strategic breathing spell (peredyshka) that has to weaken the enemy. Too enthusiastic a peace movement may mean a
superficial appeasement of problems. Such an appeal has to be studied and restudied, lest it result in a dangerous
letdown of defenses which have to remain mobilized to face a ruthless enemy.

Coexistence may mean a suffocating subordination much like that of prisoners coexisting with their jailers. At its
best, it may imitate the intensive symbiotic or ever-parasitic relationship we can see among animals which need each
other, or as we see it in the infant in its years of dependency upon its mother.

In order to coexist and to cooperate, one must have notions and comparable images of interaction, of a sameness of
ideas, of a belonging-together, of an interdependence of the whole human race, in spite of the existence of racial and
cultural differences. Otherwise the ideology backed by the greater military strength will strangle the weaker one.

Peaceful coexistence presupposes on BOTH sides a high understanding of the problems and complications of simple
coexistence, of mutual agreement and limitations, of the diversity of personalities, and especially of the coexistence
of contrasting and irreconcilable thoughts and feelings in every individual of the innate ambivalence of man. It
demands an understanding of the rights of both the individual and the collectivity. Using coexistence as a catch-word,
we may obscure the problems involved, and we may find that we use the word as a flag that covers gradual surrender to
the stronger strategist.

THE RAPE OF THE MIND: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing, by Joost A. M. Meerloo, M.D., Instructor in Psychiatry, Columbia University Lecturer in Social Psychology, New School for Social Research, Former Chief, Psychological Department, Netherlands Forces, published in 1956, World Publishing Company. (Out of Print)


There actually exists such a thing as a technique of mass brainwashing. This technique can take root in a country if an
inquisitor is strong and shrewd enough. He can make most of us his victims, albeit temporarily.

What in the structure of society has made man so vulnerable to these mass manipulations of the mind? This is a problem
with tremendous implications, just as brainwashing is. In recent years we have grown more and more aware of human
interdependence with all its difficulties and complications.

I am aware of the fact that investigation of the subject of mental coercion and thought control becomes less pleasant
as time goes on. This is so because it may become more of a threat to us here and now, and our concern for China and
Korea must yield to the more immediate needs at our own door. Can totalitarian tendencies take over here, and what
social symptoms may lead to such phenomena? Stern reality confronts us with the universal mental battle between thought
control (and its corollaries) and our standards of decency, personal strength, personal ideas, and a personal
conscience with autonomy and dignity.

Future social scientists will be better able to describe the causes of the advent of totalitarian thinking and acting
in man. We know that after wars and revolutions this mental deterioration more easily finds an opportunity to develop,
helped by special psychopathic personalities who flourish on man's misery and confusion. It is also true that the next
generation spontaneously begins to corect the misdeeds of the previous one because the ruthless system has become too
threatening to them.

My task, however, is to describe some symptoms of the totalitarian process (which implies deterioration of thinking and
acting) as I have observed them in our own epoch, keeping in mind that the system is one of the most violent
distortions of man's consistent mental growth. No brainwashing is possible without totalitarian thinking.

The tragic facts of political experiences in our age make it all too clear that applied psychological technique can
brainwash entire nations and reduce their citizens to a kind of mindless robotism which becomes for them a normal way
of living. Perhaps we can best understand how this frightening thing comes about by examining a mythical country,
which, for the sake of convenience, we shall call Totalitaria.

The Robotization of Man

First, let me utter a word of caution. We must not make the mistake of thinking that there is any one particular nation
that can be completely identified with this hypothetical land. The characteristics to be discussed can come into
existence here. Some of Totalitaria's characteristics were, of course, present in Nazi Germany, and they can today be
found behind the Iron Curtain, but they exist to some extent in other parts of the world as well. Totalitaria is any
country in which political ideas degenerate into senseless formulations made only for propaganda purposes. It is any
country in which a single group -- left or right -- acquires absolute power and becomes omniscient and omnipotent, any
country in which disagreement and differences of opinion are crimes, in which utter conformity is the price of life.

Totalitaria -- the Leviathan state -- is the home of the political system we call, euphemistically, totalitarianism, of
which systematized tyranny is a part. This system does not derive from any honest political philosophy, either
socialist or capitalist. Totalitaria's leaders may mouth ideologies, but these are in fact mainly catch-words used to
justify the regime. If necessary, totalitarianism can change its slogans and its behavior overnight. For
totalitarianism embodies, to me, the quest for total power, the quest of a dictator to rule the world. The words and
concepts of "socialism" and "communism" may serve, like "democracy," as a disguise for the megalomaniac intention of
the tyrant.

Since totalitarianism is essentially the social manifestation of a psychological phenomenon belonging to every
personality, it can best be understood in terms of the human forces that create, foster, and perpetuate it. Man has two
faces; he wants to grow toward maturity and freedom, and yet the primitive child in his unconscious yearns for more
complete protection and irresponsibility. His mature self learns how to cope with the restrictions and frustrations of
daily life, but at the same time, the child in him longs to hit out against them, to beat them down, to destroy them --
whether they be objects or people.

Totalitarianism appeals to this confused infant in all of us; it seems to offer a solution to the problems man's double
yearning creates. Our mythical Totalitaria is a monolithic and absolute state in which doubt, confusion, and conflict
are not permitted to be shown, for the dictator purports to solve all his subjects' problems for them. In addition,
Totalitaria can provide official sanction for the expression of man's most antisocial impulses. The uncivilized child
hidden in us may welcome this liberation from ethical frustration.

On the other hand, our free, mature, social selves cannot be happy in Totalitaria; they revolt against the restriction
of individual impulses.

The psychological roots of totalitarianism are usually irrational, destructive, and primitive, though disguised behind
some ideology, and for this reason there is something fantastic, unbelievable, even nightmarish about the system
itself. There is, of course, a difference in the psychic experience of the elite, who can live out their needs for
power, and the masses, who have to submit; yet the two groups influence each other.

When a dictator's deep neurotic needs for power also satisfy some profound emotional need in the population of his
country, especially in times of misery or after a revolution, he is more easily able to assume the power for which he
longs. If a nation has suffered defeat in war, for example, its citizens feel shame and resentment. Loss of face is not
simply a political abstraction, it is a very real and personal thing to a conquered people. Every man, consciously or
unconsciously, identifies with his native land. If a country suffers from prolonged famine or severe depression, its
citizens become bitter, depressed, and resentful, and will more willingly accept the visions and promises of the
aspiring dictator.

If the complexity of a country's political and economic apparatus makes the individual citizen feel powerless,
confused, and useless, if he has no sense of participation in the forces that govern his daily life, or if he feels
these forces to be so vast and confusing that he can no longer understnad them, he will grasp at the totalitarian
opportunity for belonging, for participation, for a simple formula that explains and rationalizes what is beyond his
comprehension. And when the dictator has taken over finally, he transfers his own abnormal fantasies, his rage and
anger, easily to his subjects. Their resentments feed his; his pseudo-strength encourages them. A mutual fortification
of illusions takes place.

Totalitarianism as a social manifestation is a disease of inter-human relations, and, like any other disease, man can
best resist its corroding effects if, through knowledge and training, he is well immunized against it. If, however, he
is unfortunate enough to catch the totalitarian bug, he has to muster all the positive forces in his mind to defeat it.
The raging internal struggle between the irresponsible child and the mature adult in him continues until one or the
other is finally destroyed completely. As long as a single spark of either remains, the battle goes on. And for as long
as man is alive, the quest for maturity keeps on.

Cultural Predilection for Totalitarianism

In the battle against this dread disease, social factors as well as personal ones play an important role. We can see
this more clearly if we analyze the ways in which the ideals of a culture as a whole affect its citizens' vulnerability
to totalitarianism. The ethics of our own Western civlization are our strongest defenses against the disease, for the
ideal of these ehtics is to produce a breed of men and women who are strongly individualistic and who evaluate
situations primarily in terms of their own consciences.

We aim to develop in our citizens a sense of self-responsibility, a willingness to confront the world as it is, and an
ability to distinguish between right and wrong through their own feelings and thoughts. Such men and women are impelled
to action by their personal moral standards rather than by what some outside group sets up as correct. They are
unwilling to accept group evaluations immediately unless these coincide with their own personal convictions, or unless
they have been able to discuss them in a democratic way. People like this are responsible to their communities because
they are first responsible to themselves. If they disagree, they will form a "loyal minority", using their rights of
convincing other people at appropriate times.

There are other cultures which emphasize attitudes and values that are different from these. The Eastern ideal of man,
as we find it in China and some of the other Oriental countries, is in the first place that one "oneness", of being one
with the family, one with the fatherland, one with the cosmos -- nirvana. The Oriental psyche looks for a direct
esthetic contact with reality through an indefinable empathy and intuition. Eternal truth is behind reality, behind the
veil of Maya. Man is part of the universe; his ideal is passive servility and nonirritability. His ideal of peace lies
in rest and relaxation, in meditation, in being without manual and mental travail. The happiness of the Oriental psyche
lies in the ecstasy of feeling united with the universal cosmos. Ascesis, self-redemption, and poverty are better
realized ideals in Oriental culture than in our Western society.

The classic Oriental culture pattern can best be described as a pattern of participation. In it the individual is
looked upon as an integral part of the group, the family, the caste, the nation. He is not a separate, independent
entity. In this culture, greater conformity to and acceptance of the collective rules are the ideals. An Oriental child
may be trained from infancy into a pattern of submission to authority and to rules of the group. Many primitive
cultures also display this pattern. To a person raised in these cultures, the most acceptable standards, the best
conceivable thoughts and actions, are those sanctioned by the group. The totalitarian world of mass actions and mass
thoughts is far more comprehensible to the members of a participation-patterned and less individual-minded culture than
it is to Western individualists. What is to us unbearable regimentation and authoritarianism may be to them comforting
order and regularity.

An example of an intensified pattern of participation and thought control and mutual spying has been given by the
anthropologist E. P. Dozier. [See the "New York Times", December 11, 1955; and "Science News Letter", December 3,
1955.] The Pueblo Indians of the Rio Grande area believe that wrongdoing or wrong thinking of one man in the tribe
affects all members. He may upset the cosmic balance by ill feeling toward any one of his fellow men. The moral code of
the village is group-centered. The individual who transgresses this jeopardizes the well-being of all. Epidemics, crop
failures, droughts are interpreted as a result of "deviationism" of one member of the group. Village members are
closely watched and spied on in order to discover the culprit or "witch." Gossip and accusations of witchcraft are
rampant, and the Pueblo Indian is constantly searching in his own conscience for harmful thoughts and attitudes. It is
as if we watch the ritual of the purge in the totalitarian state.

Such forms of "creeping collectivism" and participation we may see in every group formation where tolerance for
nonconformism ceases to exist. Wherever dogmatic partisanshp dominates, the mind is coerced. We may even detect such
encroaching tendencies in some scientific circles where there exists an overemphasis on group research, teamwork,
membership cards, and a disdain for individual opinion.

The culture into which a man is born and his own psychological constitution interact to produce his personality in much
the same way as his body and mind interact to produce his behavior. Our culture of individual freedom may offer us a
partial immunity to the disease of totalitarianism, but at the same time our personal immaturities and repressed
savageries can make us vulnerable to it. The participation type of culture may make men more susceptible in general to
totalitarianism, although personal strivings toward maturity and individuality can offer them, too, some measure of
protection against it.

Because of the interaction between these social and personal forces, no culture is completely safe from internal attack
by totalitarianism and from the mental destruction it may create. As I said before, our Totalitaria is a mythical
country, but the brutal truth is that any country can be turned into Totalitaria.

The aims of the rulers of our fictitious country are simply formulated: despotism, the total domination of man and
mankind, and the unity of the entire world under one dictatorial authority. At first glance, this idea of unity can be
most attractive -- the idea, oversimplified, of a brotherhood unity of nations under a central powerful agency. When
the world is one, it would seem, there will be no more war, the tensions that face us will be eliminated, earth will
become a paradise. But the simplified conception of a universal dictatorship is false and reflects the danger inherent
in the totalitarian goal: all men are different, and it is the difference between them that creates the greatness, the
variety, and the creative inspirations of life, as well as the tensions of social intercourse. The totalitarian
conception of equalization can be realized ony in death, when the chemical and physical laws that govern all of us take
over completely. Death is indeed the great equalizer.

In life, all of us are different. Our bodies and minds interact with one another and with the outside world in
different ways. Each man's personality is unique. True, all of us share certain basic human qualities with all the
other members of the human race, but the differences in personality are also so many and so varied that no two men
anywhere in the world or ever in all of human history can be said to be exactly alike. This uniqueness is as true of
the citizen of Totalitaria as it is of anyone else. As a human being, he is not only different from us, he is different
from his compatriots. However, to create man in the totalitarian image through leveling and equalization means to
suppress what is essentially personal and human in him, the uniqueness and the variety, and to create a society of
robots, not men.

The noted social scientist, J. S. Brunner, in his introduction to Bauer's book on Soviet psychology has expressed this
thought in a different way: "Man's image of the nature of man is not only a matter for objective inquiry; it is and has
always been a prime instrument of social and political control. He who molds that image does so with enormous
consequences for the society in which he lives."

Totalitaria fosters the illusion that everyone is part of the government, a voter; no one can be a non-voter or anti-
voter. His inner pros and cons and doubts are not private problems of the individual himself any more; his thoughts
belong to the state, the dictator, the ruling circle, the Party. His inner thoughts have to be controlled. Only those
in power know what really lies behind national policy. The ordinary citizen becomes as dependent and obedient as a
child. In exchange for giving up his individuality, he obtains some special gratifications: the feeling of belonging
and of being protected, the sense of relief over losing his personal boundaries and responsibilities, the ecstasy of
being taken up and absorbed in wild, uncontrolled collective feelings, the safety of being anonymous, of being merely a
cog in the wheel of the all-powerful state.

The despotism of modern Totalitaria is very different from the lush, exotic personal tyrannies of ancient times. It is
an ascetic, cold, mechanical force, aiming at what Hanna Ahrendt calls the "transformation of human nature itself." In
our theoretical country, man has no individual ego any longer, no personality, no self. A leveling system is at work,
and everything above the common level is trampled on and beaten down.

The Totalitarian Leader

The leaders of Totalitaria are the strangest men in the state. These men are, like all other men, unique in their
mental structure, and consequently we cannot make any blanket psychiatric diagnosis of the mental illness which
motivates their behvavior. But we can make some generalizations which will help us toward some understanding of the
totalitarian leader. Obviously, for example, he suffers from an overwhelming need to control other human beings and to
exert unlimited power, and this in itself is a psychological aberration, often rooted in deep-seated feelings of
anxiety, humiliation, and inferiority. The ideologies such men propound are only used as tactical and strategical
devices through which they hope to reach their final goal of complete domination over other men. This domination may
help them compensate for pathological fears and feelings of unworthiness, as we can conclude from the psychological
study of some modern dictators.

Fortunately, we do not have to rely on a purely hypothetical picture of the psychopathology of the totalitarian
dictator. Dr. G. M. Gilbert, who studied some of the leaders of Nazi Germany during the Nuremberg trials, has given us
a useful insight into their twisted minds, useful especially because it reveals to us something about the mutual
interaction between the totalitarian leader and those who want to be led by him.

Hitler's suicide made a clinical investigation of his character structure impossible, but Dr. Gilbert heard many
eyewitness reports of Hitler's behavior from his friends and collaborators, and these present a fantastic picture of
Nazism's prime mover. Hitler was known among his intimates as the carpet-eater, because he often threw himself on the
floor in a kicking and screaming fit like an epileptic rage. From such reports, Dr. Gilbert was able to deduce
something about the roots of the pathological behavior displayed by this morbid "genius."

Hitler's paranoid hostility against the Jew was partly related to his unresolved parental conflicts; the Jews probably
symbolized for him the hated drunken father who mistreated Hitler and his mother when the future Fuhrer was still a
child. Hitler's obssessive thinking, his furious fanaticism, his insistence on maintaining the purity of "Aryan blood,"
and his ultimate mania to destroy himself and the world were obviously the results of a sick psyche.

As early as 1923, nearly ten years before he seized power, Hitler was convinced that he would one day rule the world,
and he spent time designing monuments of victory, eternalizing his glory, to be erected all over the European continent
when the day of victory arrived. This delusional preoccupation continued until the end of his life; in the midst of the
war he created, which led him to defeat and death, Hitler continued revising and improving his architectural plans.

Nazi dictator Number Two, Hermann Goering, who committed suicide to escape the hangman, had a different psychological
structure. His pathologically aggressive drivers were encouraged by the archaic military tradition of the German Junker
class, to which his family belonged. From early childhood he had been compulsively and overtly aggressive. He was an
autocratic and a corrupt cynic, grasping the Nazi-created opportunity to achieve purely personal gain. His contempt for
the "common people" was unbounded; this was a man who had literally no sense of moral values.

Quite different again was Rudolf Hess, the man of passive yet fanatical doglike devotion, living, as it were, by proxy
through the mind of his Fuhrer. His inner mental weakness made it easier for him to live through means of a proxy than
through his own personality, and drove him to become the shadow of a seemingly strong man, from whom he could borrow
strength. The Nazi ideology have this frustrated boy the illusion of blood identification with the glorious German
race. After his wild flight to England, Hess showed obvious psychotic traits; his delusions of persecution, hysterical
attacks, and periods of amnesia are among the well-known clinical symptoms of schizophrenia.

Still another type was Hans Frank, the devil's advocate, the prototype of the overambitious latent homosexual, easily
seduced into political adventure, even when this was in conflict with the remnants of his conscience. For unlike
Goering, Frank was capable of distinguishing between right and wrong.

Dr. Gilbert also tells us something about General Wilhelm Keitel, Hitler's Chief of Staff, who became the submissive,
automatic mouthpiece of the Fuhrer, mixing military honor and personal ambition in the service of his own unimportance.

Of a different quality is the S.S. Colonel, Hoess, the murderer of millions in the concentration camp of Auschwitz. A
pathological character structure is obvious in this case. All his life, Hoess had been a lonely, withdrawn, schizoid
personality, without any conscience, wallowing in his own hostile and destructive fantasies. Alone and bereft of human
attachments, he was intuitively sought out by Himmler for this most savage of all the Nazi jobs. He was a useful
instrument for the committing of the most bestial deeds.

Unfortunately, we have no clear psychiatric picture yet of the Russian dictator Stalin. There have been several reports
that during the last years of his life he had a tremendous persecution phobia and lived in contant terror that he would
become the victim of his own purges.

Psychological analysis of these men shows clearly that a pathological culture -- a mad world -- can be built by certain
impressive psychoneurotic types. The venal political figures need not even comprehend the social and political
consequences of their behavior. They are compelled not by ideological belief, no matter how much they may rationalize
to convince themselves they are, but by the distortions of their own personalities. They are not motivated by their
advertised urge to serve their country or mankind, but rather by an overwhelming need and compulsion to satisfy the
cravings of their own pathological character structures.

The ideologies they spout are not real goals; they are the cynical devices by which these sick men hope to achieve some
personal sense of worth and power. Subtle inner lies seduce them into going from bad to worse. Defensive self-
deception, arrested insight, evasion of emotional identification with others, degradation of empathy -- the mind has
many defense mechanisms with which to blind the conscience.

A clear example of this can be seen in the way the Nazi leaders defended themselves through continuous self-
justification and exculpation when they were brought before the bar at the Nuremberg trials. These murderers were
aggrieved and hurt by the accusations brought against them; they were the very picture of injured innocence.

Any form of leadership, if unchecked by controls, may gradually turn into dictatorship. Being a leader, carrying great
power and responsibility for other people's lives, is a monumental test for the human psyche. The weak leader is the
man who cannot meet it, who simply abdicates his responsibility. The dictator is the man who replaces the existing
standards of justice and morality by more and more private prestige, by more and more power, and eventually isolates
himself more and more from the rest of humanity. His suspicion grows, his isolation grows, and the vicious circle
leading to a paranoid attitude begins to develop.

The dictator is not only a sick man, he is also a cruel opportunist. He sees no value in any other person and feels no
gratitude for any help he may have received. He is suspicious and dishonest and believes that his personal ends justify
any means he may use to achieve them. Peculiarly enough, every tyrant still searches for some self-justification.
Without such a soothing device for his own conscience, he cannot live.

His attitude toward other people is manipulative; to him, they are merely tools for the advancement of his own
interests. He rejects the conception of doubt, of internal contradictions, of man's inborn ambivalence. He denies the
psychological fact that man grows to maturity through groping, through trial and error, through the interplay of
contrasting feelings. Because he will not permit himself to grope, to learn through trial and error, the dictator can
never become a mature person. But whether he acknowledges them or not, he has internal conflicts, he suffers somewhere
from internal confusion. These inner "weaknesses" he tries to repress sternly; if they were to come to the surface,
they might interfere with the achievement of his goals. Yet, in the attacks of rage his weakening strength is evident.

It is because the dictator is afraid, albeit unconsciously, of his own internal contradictions, that he is afraid of
the same internal contradictions of his fellow men. He must purge and purge, terrorize and terrorize in order to still
his own raging inner drives. He must kill every doubter, destroy every person who makes a mistake, imprison everyone
who cannot be proved to be utterly single-minded. In Totalitaria, the latent aggression and savagery in man are
cultivate by the dictator to such a degree that they can explode into mass criminal actions shown by Hitler's
persecution of minorities. Utlimately, the country shows a real pathology, an utter dominance of destructive and self-
destructive tendencies.

The Final Surrender of the Robot Man

What happens to the common man in such a culture? How can we describe the citizen of Totalitaria? Perhaps the simplest
answer to this question lies in the statement that he is reduced to the mechanical precision of an insectlike state. He
cannot develop any warm friendships, loyalties, or allegiances because they may be too dangerous for him. Today's
friend may be, after all, tomorrow's enemy. Living in an atmosphere of constant suspicion -- not only of strangers, but
even of his own family -- he is afraid to express himself lest concentration camp or prison swallow him up.

The citizens of Totalitaria do not really converse with one another. When they speak, they whisper, first looking
furtively over their shoulders for the inevitable spy. Their inner silence is in sharp contrast to the official verbal
bombardment. The citizens of Totalitaria may make noise, and utter polite banalities, or they may repeat slogans to one
another, but they say nothing. Existing literature reveals that leading authors, among them H.G. Wells, Huxley, and
Orwell, grow more and more concerned about the ghastly future of the robotized man, trained as a machine on a standard
of conformity. They translate for us the common fear of a mechanized civilization.

In Totalitaria, the citizen no longer knows the real core of his mind. He no longer feels himself an "I", an ego, a
person. He is only the object of official barrage and mental coercion. Having no personality of his own, he has no
individual conscience, no personal morality, no capacity to think clearly and honestly. He learns by rote, he learns
thousands of indoctrinated facts and inhales dogma and slogans with every breath he draws. He becomes an obedient
pedant, and pedantry makes people into something resembling pots filled with information instead of individuals with
free, growing personalities.

Becoming wiser and freer implies selective forgetting and changes of mind. This we accept, this we leave behind. Alert
adjustment requires a change of patterns, the capacity to be de-conditioned, to undo and unlearn in order to become
ripe for new patterns. The citizen of Totalitaria has no chance for such learning through unlearning, for growth
through individual experience. Official oversimplifications induce the captive audience into acceptance and
indoctrination. Mass ecstasy and mass fanaticism are substituted for quiet individual thought and consideration.

Hitler taught his people to march and to do battle, and at the end they did not know wherefore they marched and
battled. People become herds -- indoctrinated and obsessed herds -- intoxicated first with enthusiasm and happy
expectations, then with terror and panic. the individual personality cannot grow in Totalitaria. The huge mass of
citizens is tamed into personal and political somnambulism.

It may be scientifically questionable to compare experiences gained from individual pathological states with social
phenomena and to analyze the partial collapse of the ego under totalitarianism by analogy with actual cases of madness.
But there is in fact much that is comparable between the strange reactions of the citizens of Totalitaria and their
culture as a whole on the one hand and the reactions of the introverted, sick schizophrenic on the other. Even though
the problem of schizophrenic behavior in individuals and groups is extremely complicated and cannot be fully handled
within the scope of this book, the comparison can be helpful in our search for an understanding of the nature and
effects of totalitarianism.

The Common Retreat from Reality

This excusion into the world of pathology is not a description of a merely coincidental resemblance between a disease
and a political system. It should serve to point up the fact that totalitarian withdrawal behind official
justifications and individual fantasy is something that can occur either in social life or inside the individual mind.
And many scholars believe in a relationship between cultural deterioration and schizophrenic withdrawal.

Let us briefly explain the individual schizophrenic's reaction of complete inner automatization and mental withdrawal
as a personal failure to adjust to a world experienced as insecure and dangerous. Often rather simple emotional
incidents may lead to such schizophrenic retreat -- for instance, the intrusion of schedules and habits forced on the
mind during infancy or a sly hypersensitivity to our overactive and oververbose culture. Many a child is forced into
schizophrenic withdrawal by an overcompulsive parent. Sometimes lack of exteernal contact may drive a man into a state
of utter loneliness and isolation, sometimes his own preference for solitude. A certain tendency to so-called
schizophrenic withdrawal has been proved to be inborn. Yet it an be provoked in everybody.

Whatever the cause, the schizophrenic patient becomes a desocialized being, lost in loneliness. Conscious and
unconscious fantasly life begins to become dominant over alert confrontation of reality. In the end his weird fantasies
become more real for the schizophrenic than the actual world. He hides more and more behind his own iron curtain, in
the imaginary dreamland and retreat he has built for himself. This is his nirvana, in which all his dream wishes are
fulfilled. Inertia and fanaticism alternate. The patient regresses to an infantile, vegetative form of behavior and
rejects everything that society has taught him. In his fantasy, he lives in a world which always obeys his commands. He
is omnipotent. The world turns around according to his divine inclinations.

Reality, requiring as it does, continual and renewed adjustment and verification, becomes a persecutor, attacking his
illusion of divine might. Every disturbing intrusion into his delusional world is encountered by the schizophrenic
either with tremendous aggression or with the formation of secondary delusion to protect the first delusion, or with a
combination of both. The schizophrenic displays tremendous hostility toward the real world and its representatives;
reality robs him both of his delusions of omnipotence and his hallucinatory sense of being utterly protected, as he was
in the womb.

Clinical experience has shown that the disease of schizophrenia often begins with negativism -- a defense against the
influence of others, a continual fight against mental intrusion, against what is felt as the rape of the oversensitive
mind. Gradually, this defensive attitude toward the world becomes a hostile attitude toward everything, not only toward
influences from the outside, but also toward thoughts and feelings from the inside. Finally, the victim becomes
paralyzed by his own hostility and negativisms. He behaves literally as though he were dead. He sits, unmoving, for
hours. He may have to be force-fed, force-dressed. The schizophrenic moves like a puppet on a string, only when someone
compels him to. Clinically, we call this catatonia -- the death attitude.

The Retreat to Automatization

Introverted schizophrenics prefer the automatic routine life of the asylum to life in the outside world, on the
condition that they be allowed to indulge their private fantasies. They surrender utterly in self-defeatism. They never
congregate in groups, they seldom talk with one another; even when they do, they never have any real mutual contact.
Each one lives in his own retreat.

In the totalitarian myth -- think, for instance, of "das Dritte Reich" -- in the psychological folklore of our mythical
state, the vague fantasy of the technically perfected womb, the ideal nirvana, plays a tremendous role. In a world full
of insecurities, a world requiring continual alert adjustment and readjustment, Totalitaria creates the delusion of the
omnipotent, miraculous ideal state -- a state where, in its final form, every material need will be satisfied.
Everything will be regulated, just as it was for the fetus in the womb, the land of bliss and equanimity, just as it is
for the schizophrenic in the mental hospital.

There is no social struggle, no mental struggle; the world moves like clockwork. There is no real interplay between
people, no clash of opinions or beliefs, there is no emotional relationship between these womb-fellows; each exists as
a separate number-bearing entity in the same filing system.

In Totalitaria, there is no faith in fellow men, no "caritas," no love, because real relationships between men do not
exist, just as they do not exist between schizophrenics. There is only faith in and subjection to the feeding system,
and there is in every citizen a tremendous fear of being expelled from that system, a fear of being totally lost,
comparable with the schizophrenic's feeling of rejection and fear of reality. In the midst of spiritual loneliness and
isolation, there is the fear of still greater loneliness, of more painful isolation. Without protective regulations
from the outside, internal hell may break lose. Strong mechanical external order must be used to cover the internal
chaos and approaching breakdown.

We have had experience in postwar years with several refugees from the totalitarian world who broke down when they had
to cope with a world of freedom where personal initiative was required. The fear of freedom brought them to a state of
panic. They no longer had strong enough egos to build and maintain their defenses against the competitive demands of
free democratic reality.

As in schizophrenia, a maneuverable and individual ego cannot exist in Totalitaria. In schizophrenia the ego shrinks as
a result of withdrawal; in Totalitaria, as a result of constant merging in mass feelings. If such a shrunken ego should
grow up, with its own critical attitude, its needs for verification of facts and for understanding, it would then be
beaten down as being treacherous and nonconforming.

Totalitaria requires of its citizens complete subjection to and identification with the leader. It is this leader-
dominance that makes people nearly ego-less, as they are in schizophrenia. This again may result in loss of control of
hostile and destructive drives. Psychologists have seen this time and time again in what we call the concentration-camp
psyche. When the victims first came to the camp -- dedicated to their gradual extermination -- most of them displayed a
complete loss of self, an utter depersonalization, combined with apathy and loss of awareness. The same observations
have been made among our POWs in Korea. Some concentration-camp victims got better immediately after their return to a
normal society; in others, this schizophrenic reaction of lost ego remained and, as we mentioned above, sometimes
developed into a real psychosis.

The Womb State

Totalitarianism is man's escape from the fearful realities of life into the virtual womb of the leader. The
individual's actions are directed from this womb -- from the inner sanctum. The mystic center is in control of
everything; man need no longer assume responsibility for his own life. The order and logic of the prenatal world reign.
There is peace and silence, the peace of utter submission. The members of the womb state do not really communicate;
between them there is silence, the silence of possible betrayal, not the mature silence of reticence and reservedness.

Totalitaria increases the gap between the things one shows and communicates and the things one secretly dreams and
thinks deep within oneself. It develops the artificial split-mindedness of political silence. Whatever little remains
of individual feeling and opinion is kept carefully enclosed. In the schizophrenic world of Totalitaria, there is no
free mutual exchange, no conversation, no exclamation, no release from emotional tension. It is a world of silent
conspirators. Indeed, the atmosphere of suspicion is the big attacker of mental freedom because it makes people cling
together, conspiring against mysterious enemies -- first from outside, then among themselves.

In Totalitaria, each citizen is continually watched. The mythical state molds the individual's conscience. He has
hardly any of his own. His neighbors watch him, his postman, his children, and they all represent the punishing state,
just as he himself must represent the state and watch others. Not betraying them is a crime.

The need to find conspiracies, to discover persecutors and criminals is another schizophrenic manifestation. It is
psychologically related to an infantile need for a feeling of omnipotence. Megalomaniac feelings grow better in an
atmosphere of mysterious secrecy. Secrecy and conspiracy increase the delusion of power. That is why so many people
like to pry into other people's lives and to play the spy.

This feeling of conspiracy also lies behind the pathological struggle with imaginary persecutors, a struggle we find
both in mentally ill individuals and in our mythical Totalitaria. "It is there!" "It is chasing us!" All the inner
fears of losing the nirvanic womb-illusion become rampant. Mysterious ghosts and vultures chase people out of nirvana
and paradise.

In these fantasies, the patriarch, the dictator, the idol, becomes both the universal danger and the omnipotent savior
at the same time. Not even the citizens of Totalitaria really love this cruel giant. Suspicion against the breast that
feeds and the hand that guides and forbids is often found in the fantasy of schizophrenic children, who experience the
nourisher as the enemy, the dominating ogre, bribing the growing mind into submission.

The deep hate the sick individual feels toward the parental figure cannot be expressed directly, and so it is displaced
onto the self or onto scapegoats. Scapegoatism is also part of the totalitarian strategy. As we pointed out before, the
scapegoat temporarily absorbs all the individual's inner fury and rage. Kulaks, Negroes, Jews, Communists, capitalists,
profiteers, and warmongers -- any or all of them can play that role. Perhaps the greatest dangers, to the totalitarian
mind, is the use of intellect and awareness and the "egg-head's" demand for free, verifying thinking. Aberration and
perversion are chosen by the citizens of Totalitaria, as they are by the inhabitants of madhouses, over the tiring,
intellectual control.

In the center of the totalitarian fears and fantasies stands the man-eating god and idol. He is unconquerable. He uses
man's great gift of adjustment to bring him to slavery. Every man's inner core of feelings and thoughts has to belong
to the leader.

Is the citizen of Totalitaria consciously aware of this? Probably not. Modern psychology has taught us how strongly the
mental mechanism of denial of reality works. The eye bypasses external occurrences when the mind does not want them to
happen. Secondary justifications and fantasies are formed to support and explain these denials. In Totalitaria we find
the same despising of reality facts as we do in schizophrenia. How else are we to explain the fact that Hitler was
still moving his armies on paper after they were already defeated?

Totalitarian strategy covers inner chaos and conflict by the strict order of the police state. So does the compulsive
schizophrenic patient, by his inner routine and schedules. These routines and schedules are a defense against painful
occurrences in external reality. This internal robotization may lead to denial of internal realities and internal needs
as well. The citizen of Totalitaria, repressing and rejecting his inner need for freedom, may even experience slavery
as liberation. He may go even one step further -- yearn for an escape from life itself, a delusion that he could become
omnipotent through utter destruction.

The SS soldiers called this the magic action of the "Blutkitt," the tie of bloody crime binding them together and
preparing them for Valhalla. With this magic unification, they could die with courage and equanimity. Anarchic despair
and need for greatness alternated in them as they do in the psychotic patient. In the same way, the citizens of
Totalitaria search for a "heroic" place in history even though the price be doom an annihilation.

Many soldiers -- tired by the rigidities of normal life -- look back at violent moments of their war experiences,
despite the hunger and terror, as the monumental culminating experiences of their lives. There, in the "Bruderbund" of
fighters, they felt happy for the first and only times in their lives.

This all sounds like a bitter comedy, but the fantasy of schizophrenics has taught us how the mind can retreat into
delusion when there is a fear of daily existence. Under these circumstances, fantasy begins to prevail over reality,
and soon assumes a validity which reality never had. The totalitarian mind is like the schizophrenic mind; it has a
contempt for reality. Think for a moment of Lysenko's theory and its denial of the influence of heredity. The
totalitarian mind does not observe and verify its impressions of reality; it dictates to reality how it shall behave,
it compels reality to conform to its fantasies.

The comparison between totalitarianism and psychosis is not incidental. Delusional thinking inevitably creeps into
every form of tyranny and despotism. Unconscious backward forces come into action. Evil powers from the archaic past
return. An automatic compulsion to go on to self-destruction develops, to justify one mistake with a new one; to
enlarge and expand the vicious pathological circle becomes the dominating end of life. The frightened man, burdened by
a culture he does not understand, retreats into the brute's fantasy of limitless power in order to cover up the vacuum
inside himself. This fantasy starts with the leaders and is later taken over by the masses they oppress.

What else can man do when he is caught in that tremendous machine called Totalitaria? Thinking -- and the brain itself
-- has become superfluous, that is, only reserved for the elite. Man has to renounce his uniqueness, his individual
personality, and must surrender to the equalizing and homogenizing patterns of so-called integration and
standardization. This arouses in him that great inner emptiness of the savage child, the emptiness of the robot that
unwittingly years for the great destruction.

In order to investigate the social forces at work undermining the free individual development of man's mind, we have to
look at manifold aspects of political life. As a clinician and polypragmatist, I don't want to bind myself to one
political state or current, but want to describe what can be experienced in social life everywhere. Where human
thinking and human habits are in the process of being remolded, they are under the influence of tremendous political
upheaval. In one country this may happen overnight, in others more slowly. The psychologists' task is to observe and
describe the impact of these processes on the human mind.

When once a nation is under the yoke of totalitarianism, when once its people have succumbed to the oversimplifications
and blandishments of the would-be dictator, how does the leader maintain his power? What techniques does he use to make
his countrymen docile followers of his bloody regime?

Because man's mature self resists totalitarianism, the dictator must work and scheme constantly to keep his subjects in
line and to immobilize their need for individual development, rebellion, and healthy growth. As we examine his
techniques, we will come to a better understanding of totalitarianism and of the interaction between the dictator's
methods and the personalities of his subjects. We need this understanding desperately, for we have to recognize that
the forces in Totalitaria that make humorless robots out of living men can also develop, albeit unwittingly, in the
so-called free, democratic societies.

The Strategy of Terror

The weapon of terror has been used by tyrants from time immemorial to make a meek instrument of man. In Totalitaria,
the use of this weapon is refined to a science which can wipe out all opposition and dissent. The leaders of
Totalitaria rule by ntimidation; they prefer loyalty through fear to loyalty through faith. Fear and terror freeze the
mind and will; they may create a general psychic paralysis. In the panic caused by totalitarian terror, men feel
separated from one another, as by an impassable vacuum, and each man becomes a lonely, frightened soul. Even panicky
hovering together could be suspected of being conspiracy against the state. Separated from any real emotional contact
with his fellow men by his own inner isolation, the citizen of Totalitaria becomes increasingly unable to fight against
its dehumanizing influences.

Totalitaria is constantly on the alert for social sinners, the critics of the system, and accusation of dissent is
equivalent to conviction in the public eye. Insinuation, calumny, and denunciation are staples of the totalitarian
strategy. The entire nation is dedicated to the proposition that every man is a potential enemy of the regime. No one
is excluded from the terror. Any man may be subjected to it no matter how high his rank.

The secret police create awe and panic inside the country, while the army serves to create awe and panic outside. Just
the thought of an outbreak of terror -- of even a possible future terror -- makes men unwilling to express their
opinions and expose themselves. Both the citizens of Totalitaria and those of her neighbors are affected by this
general fear. A clear example of how this fear paralysis operates in reality may be seen in the fact that as far back
as 1948 western Europeans, who felt the shadow of anticipated totalitarian occupation, thought it safer to criticize
and attack their American friends than to find fault with a totalitarian enemy who might sweep in suddenly and without

In Totalitaria, jails and concentration camps by the score are built in order to provoke fear and awe among the
population. They may be called "punishment" or "correction" camps, but this is only a cheap justification for the
truth. In these centers of fear, nobody is really corrected; he is, as it were, expelled from humanity, wasted, killed
-- but not too quickly, lest the terrorizing influence be diminished.

The truth of the matter is that these jails are built not for real criminals, but rather for their terrorizing effect
on the bystanders, the citizens of Totalitaria. Jails represent a permanent menace, a continual threat. They may put an
almost insupportable strain on the empathy and imagination of those citizens who are, temporarily at least, on the
outside of the barbed wire. In addition to the fear of undergoing the same cruel treatment, the fear of abasement,
humiliation, and death, the very concept of the concentration camp rouses every man's deep-seated fear of being himself
expelled from the community, of being alone, a wanderer in the desert, unloved and unwanted.

There exist several milder forms of mass terror, for instance, THE STRATEGY OF NO POLITICAL REST. In Totalitaria man is
always caught by some form of official planning. He is always conscious of control and surveillance, of spying, leering
powers lying in wait to chase him and to punish him. Even leisure time and holidays are occupied by some official
program, some facts to be learned, some political meeting, some parade. Quiet and solitude no longer exist. There is no
time for meditation, for pondering, for reminiscing. The mind is caught in a web of official thinking and planning.
Even the delights of self-chosen silence are forbidden. Every citizen of Totalitaria must join in the singing and the
slogan shouting. And he becomes so caught in the constant activity that he loses the capacity to realize what is
happening to him.

The emphasis on more production by individuals, factories, and agricultural enterprises also can become a weapon of
increased control and terror. The Stakhanovite movement in Russia, urging a constant increase in production norms,
became a threat for many. The workers had to increase the pace of their labor and production, or they would be severely
punished. The emphasis on pace and speed makes man more and more a soulless cog in the totalitarian wheel.

Terror can almost never stop itself; it thrives on compliance and grows in a vacuum. Terror as a tool means a gradual
transfer into terror as a goal -- but terror is actually a self-defeating strategy. Man will ultimately revolt even
under an absolute dictatorship. When men have been reduced to puppethood by Totalitaria, they will finally have become
immune to all threats. The magic spell of terror will finally lose its force. First the citizens of Totalitaria will
become dulled to the terror and will no longer consider even death a danger. Then a few will initiate a final revolt,
for Totalitaria's government by fear and terror fosters internal rebellion, in the few who cannot be broken down. Even
in "gleichgeschaltet" Nazi Germany a resistance movement was active.

The Purging Rituals

Cleaning out the higher echelons of government is an old historic habit. The struggle between fathers and sons, between
the older and the younger generation, became ritualized far back in prehistoric times. Frazer's classic, "The Golden
Bough," has told us a great deal about this. The ancient priest of the heathens acquired his high post by killing his
predecessor. Later in history, the newly proclaimed king offered criminals instead as sacrifices to the gods on the day
of his anointment.

In Totalitaria, the killing and purging ritual is part of the mechanism of government, and it serves not only a
symbolic but also a very real function for the dictator. He must eliminate all those he has bypassed and double-crossed
in his ruthless climb to power, lest their resentments and frustrated rage break out, endangering his position or even
his life.

The purge reflects another characteristic of life in Totalitaria. It dramatizes the fiction that the party is always on
the alert to keep itself pure and clean. Psychiatry has demonstrated that the cleanliness compulsion in neurotic
individuals is actually a displaced defense against their own inner rage and hostility. It plays the same sort of role
in communities, and when it is elevated to the level of an officially sanctioned ritual, it reduces the citizenry to
infancy. It makes the inhabitants of Totalitaria feel like babies -- still struggling to learn their first cleanliness
habits, still listening to their parent's reiterated commands to be clean, be clean, be clean, be good, be good, be
good, be loyal, be loyal, be loyal. The constant repetition of these commands reinforces each citizen's sense of guilt,
of childishness, and of shame.

The totalitarian purge is always accompanied by an elaborate confession ceremonial, in which the accused publicly
repents his sins, much as did the witches of the Middle Ages. This is the general formula: "I confess my doubts. Thanks
to the criticism of the comrades, I have been able to purify my thinking. I bow in humility to the opinion of my
comrades and the Party and am thankful for the opportunity to correct my errors. You enabled me to repudiate my
deviational questions. I acknowledge my debt to the selfless leader and the government of the people."

The strategy of public expression of shame has two effects: it serves, like the purging rituals themselves, to provoke
feelings of childish submissiveness among the people, and, at the same time, it offers each citizen a defense against
his own deep-seated psychological problems and feelings of guilt and unworthiness. Somewhere deep inside him, the
citizen of Totalitaria knows that he has abdicated his maturity and his responsibility; public purgings relieve his
sense of shame. "It is the others who are guilty and dirty, not I," he thinks. "It is they who are constantly plotting
and conniving." But the very things of which he suspects others are also true of himself. He is afraid others will
betray him because he cannot be sure in his own mind that he will not betray them. Thus his inner tensions increase,
and the purge provides a periodic blood offering to his own fear and to the god of threat.

The very fact that this ritual of coercive confession and purge must be repeated again and again indicates that man
develops an inner mental defense against it and that the more it is used, the less effective it becomes as a means of
arousing guilt and terror. Just as the citizen of Totalitaria becomes hardened or dulled to the terror of constant
official intrusion into his private life, so he becomes almost immune to the cries of treason and sabotage.

In the same way, as the purge becomes less effective as a taming tool, the tyrant uses it more frequently to soothe his
own fears. History provides us with many examples of revolutions which eventually drowned in a bloody reign of terror
and purge. Some of the most devoted heroes and leaders of the French Revolution met their death on the guillotine of
the republic they helped to create.

Wild Accusation and Black Magic

Wild accusation and black magic, like all the other taming tools of Totalitaria, are nothing new, but in primitive
civilizations and in prehistoric times the craft of black magic was rather simple. The shaman had merely to destroy or
mutiliate a small statuette of the accused criminal, to point or thrust a special stick at the man himself, or to curse
and berate him with furious words and gestures in order to bring his victim to collapse and death. In his blind
acceptance of the magic ritual, the victim was possessed by fear, and often he gave himself up to the spell and just
died (Malinowski).

This magic slaying of the foe has plural psychological implications. The victim of the magic spell was often looked
upon as the representative of the tribal god, the internalized authority and father. He must be killed because his very
existence aroused guilt and remorse among his people. His death may silence the inner voices in every man which warn
against impending downfall. Sometimes the victim comes from a different tribe than that of his accusers. In this
situation, the stranger is an easier scapegoat, and punishing him serves to still the clash of ambivalent feelings in
the members of the killing tribe. Hate for an outsider checks and deflects the hate and aggression each man feels
toward his own group and toward himself. The more fear there is in a society, the more guilt each individual member of
the society feels, the more need there is for internal scapegoats and external enemies. INTERNAL CONFUSION LOOKS FOR

In Totalitaria, the air is full of gossip, calumny, and rumor. Any accusation, even if it is false, has a greater
influence on the citizenry than subsequent vindication. Bills of particulars, made out of whole cloth are manufactured
against innocents, especially against former leaders, who have been able to develop some personal esteem and loyalty
among their friends and followers. Trumped-up charges made against us always revive unconscious feelings of guilt and
induce us to tremble.

In our analysis of the psychological forces that lead prisoners of war and other political victims to confession and
betrayal, we saw how strongly the sense of hidden guilt and doubt in each man impels him under strain to surrender to
the demands and ideologies of the enemy. This same mechanism is at work constantly among the citizens of Totalitaria.
Accusations against others remind him of his own inner rebellions and hostilities, which he does not dare to bring out
into the open, and so the accused, even when he is innocent, becomes the scapegoat for his private sense of guilt.
Cowardice makes the other citizens of our mythical country turn away from the victim lest they be accused themselves.

The very fact that character assassination is possible reveals the frailty and sensitivity of human sympathy and
empathy. Even in free, democratic societies, political campaigns are often conducted in an atmosphere of extravagant
accusation and even wilder counter accusation. The moment the strategy of wild accusation, with all its disagreeable
noises of vituperation and calumny, begins, we forget the strategic intention behind the words and find ourselves
influenced by the shouting and name calling. "Maybe," we say to ourselves, "there is something in this story." This, of
course, is just what the slanderer wants. In the minds of the politicians the illusion still persists that the end
justifies the means. But campaigns of slander produce paradoxical results because the very fact that an unfounded
accusation has been made weakens the moral sense of both listener and accuser.

Spy Mania

In Totalitaria this vicious circle of vituperation reaches its fullest flowering. Drowned in a reign of suspicion, the
citizen of Totalitaria suffers from a terrible delusion of persecution -- "spy-onoia," the spy mania. He is continually
on the alert, watching his fellow men. His good neighbor may at any moment become a saboteur or a traitor. The citizen
of Totalitaria hardly ever looks for confusion or flaws in his own soul, but projects them onto scapegoats -- until he
himself finally becomes the victim of someone else's spyonoia. Every citizen is constantly trying to search out
everyone else's innermost thoughts. Because one's own hidden thoughts are projected on one's neighbors, thinking in
itself becomes the enemy. This great fear of the inner thoughts of our fellow men is related to a general process of
paranoica re-evaluation of the world as a result of fear and totalitarian thinking. In the denial of human loyalty and
in the constant delusion of treason and sabotage are expressed the whole infantile mythology of Totalitaria and its
repudiation of mature human relationships.

Through interrogation, character assassination, humiliation, mental terror, and demoralization -- such as happens in
individual and collective brainwashing -- man can be so utterly demoralized that he accepts any political system. He is
nothing any more; why should he oppose matters? In Totalitaria there is no open policy, no free discussion, no honest
difference of opinion; there is only intrigue and denunciation, with their frightening action on the masses.

The strategy of wild accusation is used not only against Totalitaria's citizenry, but also against the rest of the
world. Totalitaria needs the images of outside enemies -- imaginary cruel monsters who spread plague and disease -- to
justify its own internal troubles. The remnants of the individual citizen's conscience are calmed and held in check by
a paranoiac attack on the rest of the world. "The enemy is poisoning our food, throwing beetles and bacteria into our
crops." This myth of an imaginary world conspiracy aims at bringing the fearful citizens of Totalitaria into a
concerted defense against nonexistent dangers. It conceals, at the same time, internal failures leading to diminishing
crops and lack of food.

Projecting blame onto others reinforces each citizen's sense of participation in the totalitarian community and stills
the nagging internal voice demanding that he act as a self-responsible individual. The myth of external plotting also
increases the individual citizen's feeling of dependence and immaturity. Now only his dictatorial leader can protect
him from the evil world outside -- a world which is described to him as a vast zoo, inhabited by atomic dragons and
hydrogen monsters.

The Strategy of Criminalization

As we said before, the citizen of Totalitaria may be able to fulfill some of his irrational, instinctual needs in
return for his submission to totalitarian slavery. Hitler Germany taught us the accepted pattern. The citizen (and
party member) is encouraged to betray his friends and parents, something the angry, frustrated baby in him has often
wanted to do. He may live out in action his deeply repressed aggressions and desires for revenge. He no longer has to
suppress or reject some of his own primitive impulses. The system assumes the full burden of his guilt and hands him a
ready-made list of thousands of justifications and exculpations for the release of his sadistic impulses. Flowery
catchwords, such as "historical necessity," help the individual to rationalize immorality and evil into morality and
good. We see here the great corruption of civilized standards.

In his strategy of criminalization, the totalitarian dictator destroys the conscience of his followers, just as he has
destroyed his own. Think of the highly learned and polished Nazi doctors who started their professional life with the
Hippocratic oath, promising to be the helping healer of man, but who later in cold blood inflicted the most horrible
tortures on their concentration-camp victims (Mitscherlich). They slaughter/tortured innocents by the thousands in order to
discover the statistical limits of human endurance. They infected other thousands with disease as guinea pigs because the Fuhrer wanted it so. They had lost their personal standards and ethics completely and justified all their crimes through the
Fuhrer's will. Political catchwords encouraged them to yield their consciences completely to the dictator. The process
of systematic criminalization requires a "deculturation" of the people. As one of Hitler's gangmen said, "When I hear
the word 'civilization,' I prepare my gun." This is done to consistently arouse the instinct of cruelty. People are
told not to believe in intellect and objective truth, but to listen only to the subjective dictates of the Moloch State,
to Hitler, to Mussolini, to Stalin.

Criminalization is conditioning people to rebellion against civilized frustrations. Show them blood and bloody
scapegoats, and a thousand years of acculturation fall away from them. This implies imbuing the people with hysteria,
arousing the masses, homogenizing the emotions. All this tends to awaken the brute Neanderthal psyche in man. Justify
crime with the glamorous doctrine of race superiority, and then you make sure the people will follow you.

Hitler knew very well what he was doing when he turned the German concentration camps over to the unleashed lusts of
his storm troopers. "Let them kill and murder," was the device. "Once they have gone so far with me, they must go on to
the end." The strategy of criminalization is not only directed toward crushing the victims of the totalitarian regime,
but also toward giving the elite hangmen -- the governing gang -- that poisonous feeling of power that drags them
farther and farther away from every human feeling; their victims become people without human identity, merely speaking
masks and ego-less robots. The strategy of criminalization is the systematic organization of the lower passions in man,
in particular in those the dictator must trust as his direct helpers.

Under the pressure of totalitarian thinking, nearly every citizen identifies with the ruling gang, and many must prove
their loyalty by murder and killing, or at least experssing their approval of murder and killing. The boredom of
Totalitaria's automatic patterns of living leads the deluded citizens to welcome the adventure of war and crime and
self-destruction. Each new act of torture and crime makes new bonds of fidelity and unscrupulous obedience, especially
within the leading gang. In the end, driven by crime and guilt, the ruling members have to stick it out together
because the downfall of the system would bring about the downfall of the entire gang, both leaders and followers. The
same thing holds true in the criminal world. Once a man has taken the first step and rejected the laws of society and
joined the criminal gang, he is at war with the outside world and its moral evaluations. From that point on, the gang
can blackmail him and subdue him.

In Totalitaria, the vicious circle of criminalization of the citizenry, the total corruption of the citizenry in all
their work, in all their play, in which the means become ends in themselves, grows into a cynical conspiracy covered
with the cynical flag of decent idealism. The country's leaders use such simple words as "the universal campaign of
peace," and the citizens rejoice and take pride in these words. Only a few among them know what deceptive deeds lie
behind the flowery phrases.

These perversions are also incorporated into a great nationalistic myth -- the Third Reich, the New Empire, the
People's Republic -- and the citizen's desire to do something heroic becomes identified with doing something violent
and criminal. Blood becomes a magic fluid, and shedding someone else's blood becomes a virtuous and life-giving deed.

Unlimited killing, as it is practiced in totalitarian systems, is related to deep, unconscious fears. The weak and
emotionally sick in any society kill out of fear, in order to borrow, in a magic way, their dead victims' strength and
happiness -- as well as, of course, their material possessions. The killing of millions in the Nazi gas ovens was part
of this ancient mythology of murder. Perhaps the members of the master race thought that slaughtering the Jews would
ensure that the Germans would endure pain for as many centuries as had their victims! It is part of an old primitive
myth that through killing one fortifies and prolongs one's own life. Let us not forget that forces of reason and
understanding in man are rather weak. It is difficult to control the fire of explosive drives, once they are lighted.

Totalitarianism must kill, slaughter, make war. Totalitaria preches hatred, and the totalitarian mouthpiece is a
lonely, deluded, tough "superman," calling for hatred and injustice and arousing intensified fanaticism unhampered by
any moral feeling or remorse. His battle cry reinforces the dictator's hold on his subjects, because each citizen, in
and through his guilty deeds, learns to hate his victim, whose very suffering arouses even more the criminal's deeply
buried sense of guilt.

Verbocracy and Semantic Fog -- Talking the People into Submission

After the First World War, we became more conscious of our attitude toward words. This attitude was gradually changing.
Our trust in official catchwords and cliches and in idealistic labels had diminished. We became more and more aware of
the fact that the important questions were what groups and powers stood behind the words, and what their secret
intentions were. But in our easygoing way we often forget to ask this question, and we are all more or less susceptible
to noisy, oft-repeated words.

The formulation of big propagandistic lies and fraudulent catchwords has a very well-defined purpose in Totalitaria,
and words themselves have acquired a special function in the service of power, which we may call verbocracy. The Big
Lie and the phoney slogan at first confuse and then dull the hearers, making them willing to accept every suggested
myth of happiness. The task of the totalitarian propagandist is to build special pictures in the minds of the citizenry
so that finally they will no longer see and hear with their own eyes and ears but will look at the world through the
fog of official catchwords and will develop the automatic responses appropriate to totalitarian mythology.

The multiform use of words in DOUBLE THINK serves as an attack on our logic, that is, an attack on our understanding of
what monolithic dictatorship really is. Hear, hear the nonsense: "Peace is war and war is peace! Democracy is tyranny
and freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength! Virtue is vice and truth is a lie." So says the Ministry of Truth in
George Orwell's grim novel, "1984." And we saw this nightmare fantasy come true when our soldiers who had spent long
years in North Korean prison camps returned home talking of totalitarian China with the deceiving cliché of "the
people's democracy." Pavlovian conditioning to special words forces people into an AUTOMATIC THINKING that is tied to
those words. The words we use influence our behavior in daily life; they determine the thoughts we have.

In Totalitaria, facts are replaced by fantasy and distortion. People are taught systematically and intentionally to lie
(Winokur). History is reconstructed, new myths are built up whose purpose is twofold: to strengthen and flatter the
totalitarian leader, and to confuse the luckless citizens of the country. The whole vocabulary is a dictated set of
slowly hypnotizing slogans. In the semantic fog that permeates the atmosphere, words lose their direct communicative
function. They become merely commanding signs, triggering off reactions of fear and terror. They are battle cries and
Pavlovian signals, and no longer represent free thinking. THE WORD, ONCE CONSIDERED A FIRST TOKEN OF FREE HUMAN
CREATION, IS TRANSFORMED INTO A MECHANICAL TOOL. In Totalitaria, words may have a seductive action, soothing or
charming their hearers, but they are not allowed to have intrinsic meaning. They are conditioners, emotional triggers,
serving to imprint the desired reaction patterns on their hearers.

Man's mental laziness, his resistance to the hard labor of thinking, makes it relatively easy for Totalitaria's
dictator to bring his subjects into acceptance of the Big Lie. At first the citizen may say to himself, "All this is
just nonsense -- pure double talk," but in the very act of trying to shrug it off, he has become subject to the power
of the inherent suggestion. That is the trick of double talk; once a man neglects to analyze and verify it, he becomes
lost in it and can no longer see the difference between rationale and rationalization. In the end, he can no longer
believe anything, and he retreats into sullen dullness. Once the citizen of Totalitaria has accepted the "logic" of his
leaders, he is no longer open to discussion or argument. Alas, in our Western world, we often meet this evasion of
semantic clarity. Let us not forget that the battle for words is part of the ideological cold war in our world.

Something has crept into our mechanized system of communication that has made our modes of thinking deteriorate. People
too casually acquire ideas and concepts. They no longer struggle for a clear understanding. The popularized picture
replaces the battle of the pros and cons of concepts. Instead of aiming at true understanding, people listen to
thoughtless repetition, which gives them THE DELUSION OF UNDERSTANDING.

Communication has an even more infantile, magic character for the citizen of Totalitaria. Words no longer represent
intelligible meanings or ideas. They bind the citizen of Totalitaria to utter dependence on his commander, much as the
infant is bound to the word pictures of his parents.


Byfield points out in his pamphlet on logocide that words are commonly used as instruments of social revolution.
Politicians seeking power must coin new labels and new words with emotional appeal, "while allowing the same old
practices and institutions to continue as before . . . The trick is to replace a disagreeable image though the
substance remains the same. The totalitarians consequently have to fabricate a hate language in order to stir up the
mass emotions. We have all experience how the word 'peace' doesn't mean peace any more, it has become a propagandistic
device to APPEASE the masses and to disguise aggression."

The VERBOCRACY in totalitarian thinking and the official verbosity of demagogues serve to disturb and suffocate the
free minds of citizens. We can say that verbocracy turns them into what psychology calls symbol agnostics, people
capable only of imitation, incapable of inquisitive sense of objectivity and perspective that leads to questioning and
understanding and to the formation of individual ideas and ideals. In other words, the individual citizen becomes a
parrot, repeating ready-made slogans and propaganda catchwords without understanding what they realy mean, or what
forces stand behind them.

This parrotism may give the citizen of Totalitaria a certain infantile emotional pleasure, however. "Heil, heil! --
Duce, Duce!" -- these rhythmic chants afford him the same kind of sound-enjoyment children achieve through babbling,
shrieking, and yelling.

The abuse of the word and the enshrinement of propaganda are more obvious in Totalitaria than in any other part of the
world. But this evil exists all over. We can find all too many examples of it in actual conversation. Many speakers use
verbal showing off to cover an emptiness of thought, to stir up emotions and to create admiration and adoration of what
is essentially empty and valueless. Loud-mouthed phoniness threatens to become the ideal of our time.

The semantic fog in Totalitaria is thickened by the regimentation of information. The citizens of our mythical country
have no access to sources of facts and opinions. They are not free to verify what they hear or read. They are the
victims of their leader's "labelomania" -- their judgments are determined by the official labels everything and
everybody bears.


The urge to attach too much meaning to the label of an object or institution and to look only casually at its intrinsic
value is characteristic of our times and seems to be growing. I call this condition labelomania; it is the exaggerated
respect for the scientific-sounding name -- the label, the school, the degree, the diploma -- with a surprising
disregard for underlying value. All about us we see people chasing after fixed formulas, credits, marks, ranks, and
labels because they believe that if one is to have prestige or recognition these distinguishing marks are necessary. In
order to obtain acceptance, people are prepared to undergo most impractical and stylized training and conditioning --
not to mention expense -- in special schools and institutions which promote certain labels, diplomas, and
sophisiticated facades.

Not long ago a psychiatric colleague worked in a clinic where a different terminology was used, and the ideas of his
former teachers, because they were expressed in terms other than those of the clinic, were criticized and even
vilified. My colleague was a good practical therapist; yet he came to need psychotherapy himself, to counteract the
utter confusion resulting from daily contacts with aggressive adepts of a different terminology, just as much as some
of our soldiers released from the Korean prison camps.

There is something essentially unpleasant in the need to express and judge all opinions and evaluations in accepted
cliches and labels. It implies a devaluation of the work or of the idea involved, and it denies the subtle human
differences between people and the phenomena their words describe. In Totalitaria, man is so anxiety-ridden, so fearful
of any deviation from the prescribed opinions and ways of thinking that he only allows himself to express himself in
the terms his dictators provide. To the citizen of Totalitaria, the acknowledged label becomes more imporant than the
eternal variation that is life.

As words lose their communicative function, they acquire more and more of a frightening, regulatory, and conditioning
function. Official words must be believed and must be obeyed. Dissension and disagreement become both a physical and an
emotional luxury. Vituperation, and the power that lies behind it, is the only sanctioned logic. Facts contrary to the
official line are distorted and suppressed; any form of mental compromise is treason. In Totalitaria, there is no
search for truth, only the enforced acceptance of the totalitarian dogmas and cliches. The most frightening thing of
all is that parallel to the increase in our means of communciation, our mutual understanding has decreased. A Babel-
like confusion has taken hold of political and nonpolitical minds as a result of semantic disorder and too much verbal

The Apostatic Crime in Totalitaria

Totalitaria makes the thinking man a criminal, for in our mythical country the citizen can be punished as much for
wrong thinking as for wrongdoing. Because the watchful eyes of the secret police are everywhere, the critic of the
regime is driven to conspiratorial methods if he wants to have even a safe conversation with those he wants to trust.
What we used to call the "Nazi gesture" was a careful looking around before starting to talk to a friend.

The criminal in Totalitaria can be an accidental scapegoat used for release of official hostility, and there is often
need for a scapegoat. From one day to the next, a citizen can become a hero or a villain, depending on strategic party

Nearly all of the mature ideals of mankind are crimes in Totalitaria. Freedom and independence, compromise and
objectivity -- all of these are treasonable. In Totalitaria there is a new crime, the apostatic crime, which may be
described as the obstinate refusal to admit imputed guilt. On the other hand, the hero in Totalitaria is the converted
sinner, the breast-beating, recanting traitor, the self-denouncing criminal, the informer, and the stool pigeon.

The ordinary, law-abiding citizen of Totalitaria, far from being a hero, is potentially guilty of hundreds of crimes.
He is a criminal if he is stubborn in defense of his own point of view. He is a criminal if he refuses to become
confused. He is a criminal if he does not loudly and vigorously participate in all official acts; reserve, silence, and
ideological withdrawal are treasonable. He is a criminal if he doesn't LOOK happy, for then he is guilty of what the
Nazis called physiognomic insubordination. He can be a criminal by association or disassociation, by scapegoatism, or
by projection, by intention or by anticipation. He is a criminal if he refuses to become an informer. He can be tried
and found guilty by every conceivable "ism" -- cosmopolitanism, provincialism; deviationalism, mechanism; imperialism,
nationalism; pacifism, militarism; objectivism, subjectivism; chavinism, equalitarianism; practicalism, idealism. He is
guilty every time he IS something.

The only safe conduct pass for the citizen of Totalitaria lies in the complete abdication of his mental integrity.

THE RAPE OF THE MIND: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing, by Joost A. M. Meerloo, M.D., Instructor in Psychiatry, Columbia University Lecturer in Social Psychology, New School for Social Research, Former Chief, Psychological Department, Netherlands Forces, published in 1956, World Publishing Company. (Out of Print)


For the Special Marine Corps Court of Inquiry in Washington that had to judge one of the cases of brainwashing, I was
asked, as an expert witness, if I could explain why some of the American officers yielded rather easily to mental
pressure exerted by the enemy.

It was in the days when Congressional investigations in our country were in full swing. In all honesty I had to answer
that sometimes coercive suggestions underlying such investigations could exert conforming pressure on susceptible
minds. People are conditioned by numerous psychological processes in our daily political atmosphere.

Though we have been forewarned of what totalitarian techniques may do to the mind, there is reason to be alarmed by the
possible disruption of values brought about by some of our own troubles.

The totalitarian dictator succeeded in transforming his apparatus of "justice" into an instrument of threat and
domination. Where once a balanced feeling of justice had been recognized as the noblest ideal of civilized man, this
ideal was now scoffed at by cynics -- like Hitler and Goebbels -- and called a synthetic emotion useful only to impress
or appease people. Thus, in the hands of totalitarian inquisitors and judges justice has become a farce, a piece of
propaganda to soothe the people's conscience. Investigative power is misused -- to arouse prejudices and animosities in
those bystanders who have become too confused to distinguish between right and wrong.

The totalitarian has taught us that the courts and the judiciary can be used as tools of thought control. That is why
we have to study how our own institutions, intentionally or unobtrusively, may be used to distort our concepts of
democratic freedom.

The Downfall of Justice

To a psychologist, perhaps the most interesting aspect of the Moscow purge trials between 1936 and 1938 was the deep
sense of moral shock felt by people all over the world, whose trust in the judicial process was shaken to its
foundations by these perversions of justice. Discussions about the trials always concerned themselves less with the
question of guilt or innocence of the accused than with the horrifying travesty of justice the trials presented.
Somewhere deep in the soul of men lies the conviction that a judge is, by definition, a righteous, impartial man, that
an appeal to the courts is the road to truth, that the law stands above corruption, degradation, and perversion. Of
course, we recognize that judges are human beings like ourselves, that they can make mistakes, as the rest of us do,
and we are even willing to accept temporary injustice because we believe that there will be eventual vindication and
that the rule of law and justice will remain triumphant. The moment the judicial process becomes a farce, a show to
intimidate the people, something in man's soul is profoundly affected. When justice is no longer blind, but has her eye
on the main chance, we become frightened and alarmed. To whom shall a man turn if he cannot find justice in the courts?

During the course of psychotherapy, one of my patients was called to jury duty. The experience disturbed him deeply,
for apparently the prosecutor in this case was more interested in getting a conviction than in finding out the truth.
Although the jury had the last word, and, by its verdict, condemned the prosecutor's strategy, our juror was greatly
upset. "What happens," he asked me, "in other cases? Suppose the jurors cannot see through the lawyer's sophisms?
Suppose they are taken in by his constant suggestion and insistence?"

Indeed, any trial can be used as a weapon of intimidation; it can, in a subtle way, intimidate the jurors, the
witnesses, the entire public. In Totalitaria, some higher courts exist only to carry out this function of intimidation;
their purpose is to prove to their own citizens and to the world at large that there is a punishing and threatening
force controlling the government and that this force can use the judiciary for its own purposes.

An apparent objective official investigation may become a weapon of political control simply through the suggestions
that inevitably accompany it. The man who is under investigation is almost automatically stigmatized and blamed because
our suspicions are thrust on him. The very fact that he is under scrutiny makes him suspect. Thus, even the so-called
"democratic power to investigate" may become the power to destroy. We must beware of this danger! Already the approving
or disapproving way of interrogation changes man's thinking about facts.

Any judicial action, whether legal or investigative, which receives widespread publicity, exerts some mental pressure
on the entire public. It is not only the participants in the action who have a stake in its eventual outcome, the
citizens as a whole may well become emotionally involved in the proceedings. Any official investigation can be either a
mere show of power or an act of truth. As a show of power, by a totalitarian government or by an unscrupulous
demagogue, it can have frightening consequences. The German Reichstag fire case, the Moscow purge trials, and the court
actions against our P.O.W.s in China are prime examples of "legal" action which served to consolidate the political
power of ruthless men and had for their object confusion of a helpless citizenry. An additional intention was to shock
the public opinion of the world.

If we look at legal inquiry from the point of view of each of its participants, we will see even more clearly the
dangers we must guard against.

The Demagogue as Prosecutor and Hypnotist

Recent happenings in our own country indicate clearly that the methods used to satisfy a question for power show a
universal pattern. The ancient magic masks used to frighten the people may have been replaced by an overconfident show
of physical strength by a "hero" artificially shaped as an object of admiration and identification for infantile minds,
but the loud noises of propaganda are still with us, magnified a thousandfold by the radio and television, and serving
to intimidate and hypnotize our less alert contemporaries. A worldwide audience, watching and listening to the
demagogue playing all his different roles -- the righteous accuser, the martyred victim, the voice of conscience -- is
temporarily thrown into a semifrightend, trancelike state of exhausted inattentiveness through the monotonous
repetition of threats, accusations, and cliches.

The demagogue, like the totalitarian dictator, knows well how to lay a mental spell on the people, how to create a kind
of mass suggestion and mass hypnosis. There is no intrinsic difference between individual and mass hypnosis. In
hypnosis -- the most intensified form of suggestion -- the individual becomes temporarily automatized, both physically
and mentally. Such a clinical state of utter mental submission can be brought about quite easily in children and in
primitive people, but it can be created in civilized adults, too. Some of the American P.O.W.s in Korean prison camps
were reduced to precisely this condition.

The more the individual feels himself to be part of the group, the more easily can he become the victim of mass
suggestion. This is why primitive communities, which have a high degree of social integration and identification, are
so sensitive to suggestions. Sorcerers and magicians can often keep an entire tribe under their spell.

Most crowds are rather easy to influence and hypnotize because common longings and yearnings increase the
suggestibility of each member of the group. Each person has a tendency to identify with the rest of the group and with
the leader as well, and this makes it easy for the leader to hold the people in his grip. As Hitler said in "Mein
Kampf," the leader can count on increasing submissiveness from the masses.

Sudden fright, fear, and terror were the old-fashioned methods used to induce hypnosis, and they are still used by
dictators and demagogues. Threats, unexpected accusations, even long speeches and boredom, as well as television and
radio may overwhelm the mind and reduce it to a hypnotic state.

Another easy technique is to work with specially suggestive words, repeating them monotonously. Arouse self-pity! Tell
the people that they have been "betrayed" and that their leaders have deserted them. From time to time, the demagogue
has to add a few jokes. People like to laugh. They also like to be horrified, and the macabre, especially, attracts
them. Tell them gory tales and let them huddle together in sensational tension. They will probably develop an enormous
awe for the man who frightens them and will be willing to give him the chance to lead them out of their emotional
terror. In the yearning to be freed from one fear, they may be willing to surrender completely to another.

The Demagogue as Prosecutor and Hypnotist

Radio and television have enhanced the hypnotizing power of sounds, images, and words. Most Americans remember very
clearly that frightening day in 1938 when Orson Welles's broadcast of the invasion from Mars sent hundreds of people
scurrying for shelter, running from their homes like panicky animals trying to escape a forest fire. The Welles
broadcast is one of the clearest examples of the enormous hypnosuggestive power of the various means of mass
communication, and the tremendous impact that authoritatively broadcast nonsense can have on intelligent, normal

It is not only the suggestive power of these media that gives them their hypnotizing effect. Our technical means of
communication make of the people one huge participating mass. Even when I am alone with my radio, I am technically
united with the huge mass of other listeners. I see them in my mind, I unconsciouly identify with them, and while I am
listening I am one with them. Yet I have no direct emotional contact with them. It is partly for this reason that radio
and television tend to take away active affectionate relationships between men and to destroy the capacity for personal
thought, evaluation, and reflection. They catch the mind directly, giving people no time for calm, dialectical
conversation with their own minds, with their friends, or with their books. The voices from the ether don't permit the
freedom-arousing mutuality of free conversation and discussion, and thus provoke greater passive acceptance -- as in

Many people are hypnophiles, anxious to daydream and day-sleep throughout their lives; these people easily fall prey to
mass suggestion. The lengthy oration or the boring sermon either weakens the listeners and makes them more ripe for the
mass spell, or makes them more resentful and rebellious. Long speeches are a staple of totalitarian indoctrination
because finally the boredom breaks through our defenses. We give in. Hitler used this technique of mass hypnosis
through monotony to enormous advantage. He spoke endlessly and included long, dull recitals of statistics in his

The din of constant verbal intimidation of the public is a recognized tool of totalitarian strategy. The demagogue uses
this suggestive technique, too, as well as the more tricky maneuver of attacking opponents who are usually considered
to be beyond suspicion. This maneuver is often combined with a renewed appeal to self-pity. "Fourteen years of disgrace
and shame," was the slogan Hitler used to slander the very creative period between the Armistice in 1918 and the year
he seized the helm. "Twenty years of treason," a slogan used in our country not too long ago, sounds suspiciously like
it, and is all too familiar to anyone who watched Hitler's rise and fall.

The stab-in-the-back myth reduces everyone who is taken in by it to the level of suspicious childhood. This
inflammatory oratory aims toward arousing chaotic and aggressive responses in others. The demagogue doesn't mind
temporary verbal attacks on himself -- even slander can delight him -- because these attacks keep him in the headlines
and in the public eye and may help increase people's fear of him. Better to be hated and feared than forgotten! The
demagogue grows fat on prolonged and confused discussion of his behavior; it serves to paralyze the people's minds and
to obscure completely the real issues behind his red herrings. If this continues long enough, people become fed up,
they give in, they want to sleep, they are willing to let the big "hero" take over. And the sequel can be
totalitarianism. As a matter of fact, Nazism and Fascism both gambled on the fear of Communisim as a means of seizing
power for themselves. What we have recently experienced in this country is frighteningly similar to the first phase of
the deliberate totalitarian attack on the mind by slogans and suspicions. Violent, raucous noise provokes violent
emotional reactions and destroys mental control. When the demagogue starts to rant and rave, his outbursts tend to be
interpreted by the general public as proof of his sincerity and dedication. But for the most part such declarations are
proof of just the opposite and are merely part of the demagogue's power-seeking energy.

There is in existence a totalitarian "Document of Terror" which discusses in detail the use of well-planned, repeated
successive WAVES OF TERROR to bring the people into submission. Each wave of terrorizing cold war creates its effect
more easily -- after a breathing spell -- than the one that preceded it because people are still disturbed by their
previous experience. Morale becomes lower and lower, and the psychological effect of each new propaganda campaign
becomes stronger; it reaches a public already softened up. Every dissenter becomes more and more frightened that he may
be found out. Gradually people are no longer willing to participate in any sort of political discussion or to express
their opinions. Inwardly they have already surrendered to the terrorizing dictatorial forces.

We must learn to treat the demagogue and aspirant dictator in our midst just as we should treat our external enemies in
a cold war -- with the weapon of ridicule. The demagogue himself is almost incapable of humor of any sort, and if we
treat him with humor, he will begin to collapse. Humor is, after all, related to a sense of perspective. If we can see
how things should be, we can see how askew they can get, and we can recognize distortion when we are confronted with
it. Put the demagogue's statements in perspective, and you will see how utterly distorted they are. How can we possibly
take them seriously or answer them seriously? We have important business to attend to -- matters of life and death both
for ourselves as individuals and for our nation as a whole. The demagogue relies for his effectiveness on the fact that
people will take seriously the fantastic accusations he makes; will discuss the phony issues he raises as if they had
reality, or will be thrown into such a state of panic by his accusations and charges that they will simply abdicate
their right to think and verify for themselves.

The fact is that the demagogue is not appealing to what is rational and mature in man; he is appealing to what is most
irrational and most immature. To attempt to answer his ravings with logic is to attempt the impossible. First of all,
by so doing we accept his battling premises, and we find ourselves trapped in an argument on terms he has chosen. It is
always easier to defeat an enemy on your own ground, and by choosing your own terms. In addition, the demagogue either
is, or pretends to be, incapable of the kind of logic that makes discussion and clarification possible. He is a master
at changing the subject. It is worse than criminal for us to get ourselves involved in endless, pointless, and
inevitably vituperative arguments with men who are less concerned with truth, social good, and real problems than they
are with gaining unlimited attention and power for themselves.

In their defense against psychological attacks on their freedom, the people need humor and good sense first. Consistent
approval or silent acceptance of any terror-provoking strategy will result only in the downfall of our democratic
system. Confusion undermines confidence. In a country like ours, where it is up to the voting public to discern the
truth, a universal knowledge of the methods used by the demagogue to deceive or to lull the public is absolutely

The Trial as an Instrument of Intimidation

Man's suggestibility can be a severe liability to him and to his democratic freedom in still another important respect.
Even when there is no deliberate attempt to manipulate public opinion, the uncontrolled discussion of legal actions,
such as political or criminal trials, in newspaper headlines and in partisan columns helps to create a collective
emotional atmosphere. This makes it difficult for those directly involved to maintain their much-needed objectivity and
to render a verdict according to facts rather than suggestions and subjective experiences.

In addition, any judicial process which receives widespread publicity exerts mental pressure on the public at large.
Thus, not only the participants but the entire citizenry can become emotionally involved in the proceedings. Any trial
can be either an act of power or an act of truth. An apparently objective examination may become a weapon of control
simply by the action of the suggestions that inevitably accompany it. As an act of power by a totalitarian government,
the trial can have frightening consequences. The Moscow purge trials and the German Reichstag fire case are prime

We do not, of course, have such horrifying travesties on justice in this country, but our tendency to turn legal
actions into a field day for the newspapers, the radio, and television weakens our capacity to arrive at justice and
truth. It would be better if we postponed discussion of the merits of any legal case until after the verdict was in.

As we have already seen, any man can be harassed into a confession. The cruel process of menticide is not the only way
to arrive at this goal; a man can be held guilty merely by accusation, especially when he is too weak to oppose the
impact of collective ire and public opinion.

In circumstances of abnormal fear and prejudice, men feel the need for a scapegoat more strongly than at other times.
Consequently, people can be easily duped by false accusations which satisfy their need to have someone to blame.
Victims of lynch mobs in our own country have been thus sacrificed to mass passion and so have some so-called traitors
and collaborators. In public opinion, the trial itself becomes the verdict of "guilty."

The Congressional Investigation

Let me first state that I firmly believe that the right of the Congress to investigate and to propose legislation on
the basis of such investigation is one of the most important of our democratic safeguards. But like any other human
institution, the Congressional right to investigate can be abused and misused. The power to investigate may become the
power to destroy -- not only the man under attack, but also the mental integrity of those who, in one way or another,
are witnesses to the investigation. In a subtle way, the current wave of Congressional investigations may have a
coercive effect on our citizenry. Some dictatorial personalities are obsessed with a morbid need to investigate, and
Congressional investigations are made to order for them. Everybody who does not agree with them, who does not bow low
and submit, is suspect, and is subjected to a flow of vilification and vituperation. The tendency on the part of the
public is to disbelieve everything that the demagogue's opponents say and to swallow uncritically the statements made
by those who either surrender to his browbeating or go along with it because they believe in the aims he pretends to
stand for.

PSYCHOLOGICALLY, IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THAT THE SIMPLE FACT OF BEING INTERVIEWED AND INVESTIGATED HAS A COERCIVE INFLUENCE. As soon as a man is under cross-examination, he may become paralyzed by the procedure and find
himself confessing to deeds he never did. In a country where the urge to investigate spreads, suspicion and insecurity
grow. Everybody becomes infected with the feelings of the omnipotence of the inquisitor. Wire tapping, for instance,
has the same power; it is grasping the secrets of others.

In psychological circles a good deal of attention is now being given to the impact of interviews and interrogations on
people. The psychological interviewer himself must be aware of the various interpersonal processes involved in this
kind of communication; if he is not, he will not be able to find out where the truth lies. Instead he will get answers
which are implicit in his own questions, answers which may have little relation to the real truth. This does not happen
only in cases where both the interviewer and the man he is interviewing show bad faith. It can happen despite their
best intentions. For everybody brings to an interview the sum total of all his earlier interpersonal relationships. In
the initial verbal "trial and error," during what we could call the smelling-out period, each party mobilizes himself
to find out what the other party expects and where his weaknesses are and, at the same time, tries to hide his own
weaknesses and emphasize his own strengths. The man in the street who is suddenly interviewed tends to give the answer
he thinks his questioner expects.

Every conversation, every verbal relationship repeats, at least to some degree, the pattern of the early verbal
relationships between the child and its parents. To a man or woman under investigation, the interrogator becomes the
parent, good or bad, an object of suspicion or of submission. Since the interrogator himself is often unaware of this
unconscious process, the result can be a confusing battle of unconscious or half-conscious tendencies, in which the
spoken words are often merely a cover for suspicion-laden conversation between deeper layers of both personalities.

All people who are systematically interrogated, whether in a court, during a Congressional inquiry, or even when
applying for a job or having a medical examination, feel themselves exposed. This very fact in itself provokes peculiar
defensive mental attitudes. These attitudes may be useful and protective, but at times they may be harmful to the
individual. When a man is looking for a job, for example, he may become overeager, and in his zeal to "make a good
impression" to "put his best foot forward," he may make a bad impression and arouse suspicion. For it is not only what
we say but the way we say it that can indicate our honesty and poise. Nervous sounds, gestures, pauses, moments of
silence or stuttering may give us away. Aggressive zeal may seduce us into saying too much. Inhibition may prevent us
from saying enough.

The defendant in a court action or in an inquiry is defensive not only about the accusations leveled against him or the
questions he has to answer, he is even more defensive about his own unconscious guilt and about his doubts about his
own capabilities. Many of my colleagues in medicine and psychiatry who have been called as expert witnesses in legal
actions have told me that the very moment they were under cross-examination, they felt themselves on trial and nearly
convicted. Cross- examination seemed to them often less a way of getting at the truth than a form of emotional
coercion, which did a great disservice to both the facts and the truth. This is the reason that every kind of
investigative power can so easily become a coercive power. Making witnesses and defendants suffer from acute stage
fright can be a nasty weapon of totalitarianism.

Because psychologists and psychiatrist appreciate these facts, there is now a strong tendency in these circles to use
what we might call a passive technique in interviewing. When the interviewer's questions are not directed toward any
specific answer, the man being questioned will be encouraged to answer on his own initiative, out of his own desire to
communicate. The neutral question, "What did you do afterwards?" provokes a freer and more honest response than the
question "Did you go home after that?"

The Witness and His Subjective Testimony

We have seen in recent years a long parade of recanting Communists, who have testified freely and openly about their
pasts. Currently, we have still another kind of parade: the recanting recanters. How are we to know the truth from
falsehood in all this morass of conflicting testimony? How are we to prevent ourselves from becoming confused by the
contradictory testimony of men and women whose words can influence the course of our nation's actions? How are we to
learn to evaluate what they say? Psychologically, how reliable is their testimony, whether friendly or unfriendly?

In general, we can say that those who are most vituperative in their statements are usually the least reliable. Many of
them are men and women who in the past adopted a totalitarian ideology out of their own deep sense of inner insecurity.
Later there came the moment when they felt that their chosen ideology had failed them. Though it had held their minds
relentlessly imprisoned for a long time, at that point they were able to throw off the system completely. This they did
through a process of inner rearrangement of old observations and convictions. However, what they shed was merely a
particular set of rigid ideological rules. Most of them did not shed, along with these rules, their hidden hatreds and
early insecurity. They may have given up the political ideology which offered them defenses and justifications, but
they retained their resentments.

It is extremely common to find such people seeking immediate sanctuary in some other strictly organized institution.
Because they now see things in a different light, old facts and concepts acquire a different significance. Yet, all the
while, the ever-present urge toward self-justification and self-exculpation, which operates in all men and which in
these cases motivated the former allegiance to Communism, is at work. Now they must prove their guiltlessness and their
loyalty to their newly adopted ideas. Their emotions, now in new garb, are still directed toward the goal of self-

In the eyes of the convert, the fresh outlook -- this new arrangement of inner demands and of ways of satisfying them
-- is just as logical and rational as were his former set of expectations and satisfactions. Now he rediscovers several
experiences long since past. His former friends become his enemies; some of them are seen as conspirators, whether they
were or not. He himself is unable to distinguish between truth and fantasy, between fact and subjective demand.
Consequently, a complete distortion of perceptions and memories may take place. He may misquote his own memories, and
this process is for the most part one of which the convert himself is not aware. I remember vividly one example of such
behavior during the Second World War. A former Nazi became a courageous member of the anti-Nazi underground. He sought
to rectify his past behavior not only by fighting the Nazis, but also by spreading all kinds of anxiety-provoking
rumors about his former friends. By making them appear more cruel, he thought he could show himself more loyal.

Similarly, the denials and misstatements that may be made by the convert before the courts or the Congressional
committees are often not so much conscious falsehoods as they are products of the new inner arrangements. Every
accusation about the convert's past may be twisted by him into a new tool for use in the process of self-justification.
Only a few such men have the moral courage to admit that they have made real mistakes in the past. The distance between
a white lie and selective forgetting and repressing is often very short. I discovered this for myself while carrying on
investigations of resistance members who had been in Nazi hands. I found that it was almost impossible to obtain
objective information from them about what they had revealed to the enemy after torture. Reporting upon their enforced
betrayal, they immediately colored their stories by white lies and secondary distortions. Depending on their guilt
feelings, they either accused themselves too much or found no flaw at all in their behavior.

The Right to Be Silent

Out of the action of Congressional investigating committees has recently come a serious legal attack on the right to be
silent when the giving of information clashes with the conscience of the one on the stand. This attack can become a
serious invasion of human privacy and reserve. Undermining the value of the personality and of private conscience is as
dangerous to the preservation of democracy as is the threat of totalitarian aggression.

We have to realize that it is often difficult for witnesses to make a choice between contempt of Congess and contempt
of human qualitites. Administrators may conceivably discover a few alleged "traitors" by compelling witnesses to betray
their former friends, but at the same time they compel people to betray friendships. Friendship is one of our most
precious human possessions. Any government or agency that, under the guise of "contempt of Congress," can force
confessions, and information can also force the betrayal of former loyalties. Is this not comparable with what the
coercive totalitarians do? And at what cost?

We obtain a pseudo-purge resulting from weakness of character and anxiety in the victim. In addition we violate one of
democracy's basic tenets -- respect for the strength of man's character. We have always believed that it is better to
let ten guilty men go free than to hang one innocent -- in direct opposition to the totalitarian concept that it is
better to hang ten innocent men than to let one guilty man go free. We may punish the guilty with this strategy of
compelling a man to speak when his conscience urges him to be silent, but just as surely we break down the innocent by
destroying their conscience. Supreme Court Justices Douglas and Black in their dissenting opinion about the
constitutionality of the Immunity Act of 1954 [See "The New York Times," March 27, 1956] emphasize the right to be
silent as a Constitutional right given by the Fifth Amendment -- a safeguard of personal conscience and personal
dignity and freedom of expression as well. It is beyond the power of Congress to compel anyone to confess his crimes
even when immunity is assured.

The individual's need NOT to betray his former allegiances -- even when he has made a mistake in political judgment at
an age of less understanding -- is morally just as important as the need to help the state locate subversives. Let us
not forget that betrayal of the community is rooted in self-betrayal. By forcing a man to betray his inner feelings and
himself, we actually make it easier for him to betray the larger community at some future date. If the law forces
people to betray their inner moral feelings of friendship, even if these feelings are based on juvenile loyalties, then
that very law undermines the integrity of the person, and coercion and menticide begin. The conscience of the
individual plays an enormous role in the choice between loyal opposition and passive conformity. The law has to protect
the individual also against the violation of his personal moral standards; otherwise, human conscience will lose in the
battle between individual conscience and legal power. Moral evaluation starts with the individual and not with the

Mental Blackmail

The concept of brainwashing has already led to some legal implications, and these have led to new facets of imagined
crime. Because the reports about Communist brainwashing of the prisoners of war in Korea and China were published
widely in newspapers, they aroused anxieties among lay people. As mentioned in Chapter Three, several schizophrenics
and borderline patients seized upon this rather new concept of brainwashing, using it as an explanation for a peculiar
kind of delusion that beset them -- the delusion of being influenced. Some of these persons had, as it were, the
feeling that their minds had been laid open, as if from the outside, through radio waves or some other mystic
communication, thoughts were being directed.

During recent years, I received several letters from such patients complaining about their feelings of continual
brainwashing. The new concept of political mental coercion fitted into their system of delusions. Several lawyers
consulted me for information about clients who wanted to sue their imaginary brainwashers.

The same concept, used above to account for pathological suspicions, could be used maliciously to accuse and sue
anybody who professionally gave advice to people or tried to influence them. At this very moment (fall, 1955) several
court procedures are going on wherein the defendants are being sued for the crime of brainwashing by a third party.
They are accused of having advised, in their professional capacity, somebody to do something against the plaintiff's
interests. The shyster lawyer is now able to attack subtle human relationshpis and turn them into a corrupt matter.
This is the age-old evil of using empathy not for sympathy but for antipathy and attack. In so doing, the accuser may
misuse a man's hesitation to bring these human relationshps into the open; the accuser also makes use of the strange
situation in the United States that even the innocent winner of a court procedure has to pay the cost of his legal
help. Practically, this means that in a difficult judicial question, he has to pay at least thirty thousand dollars
before he can reach the Supreme Court -- if it is a Supreme Court case -- and appeal to the highest form of justice in
our country.

Because of this new angle, which has developed during the past few years, of the brainwashing situation, the
psychiatric profession has been made more vulnerable to unreasonable attack. In one case, a third party felt hurt by a
psychological treatment that made the patient more independent in an unpleasant commercial situation in which he had
formerly been rather submissive. In another case, the doctor was sued because he was able to free his patient from a
submissive love affair and an ambiguous promise of marriage. In a third case, the patient during treatment changed from
a commerical agency that had treated him badly. In all those cases, the disappointed party could bring suit on the
basis of so-called brainwashing, and malicious influence. In several cases of this form of blackmail, an expensive
settlement was made out of court because the court procedure would have become far more costly.

The practicing psychiatrist who is attacked in this way experiences not only financial pressure imposed on him by the
dissatsified party and a malicious lawyer, but in several states the court does not even recognize his professional
oath of secrecy. The Hippocratic oath says:

Whatever, in connection with my professional practice, or not in connection with it, I may see or hear in the lives of
men which ought not to be spoken abroad, I will not divulge, as reckoning that all such should be kept secret.

Some courts hold that the only physical investigation and treatment are valid as medical treatment not to be divulged;
personal conversation -- the quintessence of psychiatric treatment -- is not looked upon as a medical action. Hiding
behind professional secrecy is regarded as contempt of court. An additional difficulty is that this accusation of
malpractice by a third party -- not by the patient himself -- is not covered by the usual malpractice insurance.

The importance of such perfidious attack on psychological relationships -- however rare the number of cases may be at
this moment -- is that it opens the road for many other forms of mental blackmail. It means that subtle personal
relationships can be attacked and prosecuted in court, merely because a third party feels excluded or neglected or
financially damamged. I cannot sue my broker because he gave me wrong financial advice, but I can sue a psychological
counselor for malpractice because he "brainwashed" my client.

What new possibilities for mental blackmail and sly accusation are open! Gradually we can make punishable wrong
intention and anticipation, nonconformist advice and guidance, and, in the end, simple honest human influence and
originality -- things that are already considered criminal in totalitarian countries.

The word "blackmail" was originally used in the border warfare between England and Scotland. Blackmail was the
agreement made by freebooters not to plunder or molest the farmer -- in exchange for money or cattle. The word comes
from the Middle English "maille" meaning speech or rent or tax.

The French equivalent "chantage" brings us even nearer to the concept of mental coercion. It means forcing the other
fellow "to sing," to confess things against his will by means of threatening physical punishment or threatening to
reveal a secret. It is, in the last analysis, mental coercion.

We may call mental blackmail the growing tendency to overstep human reserve and dignity. It is the tendency to misuse
the intimate knowledge of what is going on in the crevices of the soul, to injure and embarrass one's fellow man.
of dirt and sensation in order to embarrass a victim we see very often carried on by the yellow press. It is not only
playing up indecency, but at the same time it undermines human judgment and opinion. And by its sensationalism is
precludes and prejudices justice in the courts.

What a weak baby accomplishes with its tears and pouting can be done by the whining, querulous accuser with his
fantasies about malicious influence and brainwashing. The suicidal patient may exert the same kind of pressure.

I am convinced that in the future the Supreme Court has to make rules which will control these new forms of indictment;
yet the core of the problem is the growing suspicion within man in our era of transition. We blackmail men's minds with
too many security measures, with secret files; we blackmail with gossip, with subtle pressures within political
pressure groups, with lobbies within lobbies, and even by withholding our friendship.

The Judge and the Jury

What about the people who are called upon to sift truth from falsehood, to arrive at just and impartial verdicts? The
judge and the jury are themselves influenced and affected by the external facts and inner needs that lie behind the
behavior of the other principals in the case. Yet they are supposed to rise above their background, their personal
needs and desires and to render a verdict strictly on the evidence, unswayed by any prejudice or subjective desires.
And let us bear in mind that it is not only those officially connected with a case who make a decision about it, it is
everyone who knows about it. You and I, the public, are judge and jury too.

Judge and jury face the difficult task of finding and asking on the basis of the facts alone, and yet even in them,
under the influence of strong group emotions, an emotional rearrangement of remembered facts may take place.

Judge and jurors are affected by the collective emotional atmosphere surrounding controversial issues, and it is
difficult for them to maintain their much-needed objectivity. The average juror already submits to the popular
emotional demand before the trial is started, as several trials about racial persecution proved.

Lately two authorities on law attacked the system of trial by jury, one because of its delaying action on the process
of justice (Peck) and the other because he considered it an outmoded means of administering justice (Newman). Trial by
jury is a relic of the thirteenth century intended to replace the magic trial by ordeal -- the gods and coincidence
decided the guilt -- and to replace the trial by battle -- physical skill and power decided which of two parties was
guilty. The trial by a jury of peers, by all those who knew the accused and the circumstances of the alleged crime,
served its puspose in rather simple organized communities for a long time. But in our compliated society, where people
know less about each other and where a thousandfold communications intrude the mind, things have changed. "The average
juror is swayed by the emotion and prejudice of his heredity and background training." (Newman) Our juries are not
always able to follow the intricacies of pros and cons, of interpretation of facts. In addition, many a trial lawyer
knows how to fascinate a jury, how to catch their minds and influence their judgment. Beyond this, the selection of
jurors delays more and more the process of justice.

As a simple example of how individual, personal, and social conditioning can affect a juror's current reactions, let us
look at the inner confusion usually caused by the word "traitor." Here we have an emotionally loaded trigger-word. If
somebody is accused of being a traitor or a subversive, on the basis of undeniable facts, any attempt at a scientific,
psychological explanation of this person's behavior is already considered a treacherous intellectualism. The consensus
is that the traitor should be punished; he belongs to the scum of society, better let him die. Even the lawyer who
defends him before the court may be accused of collaboration in treason.

All of us know many other trigger words which immediately provoke confusion in our objective perception and judgment
because they touch unsolved, unconscious feelings. Words like "Communist" and "homosexual," for instance, can become
confusing trigger words which bring a reservoir of dark feelings into action. Demagogues like to use such words in
order to stir up mass feelings, which they cannot control but which they believe are very suitable for the strategy of
the moment. This can become, however, like playing with dynamite. Any one of us may be swayed by allusive cliches such
as "Where there's smoke, there's fire" or "Once a thief, always a thief." I once saw this most interestingly in a hot
debate where someone had once been scolded for being a "dirty monogamist." As soon as the accusation was made, public
opinion turned against him.

Even a judge can be swayed by his own emotional difficulties, especially by slanted testimony of witnesses who may be
attempting to mislead. In Great Britain the courts are more aware of the effect of a prejudicial attitude on the part
of jurors. There the trial process is extensively protected, mostly through prevention of pretrial discussion and
deliberation, regardless of the unpopularity of the accused.

Televised Interrogation

An open official interrogation affects those who watch it -- and the fact that they are affected may influence its
outcome. Various crime hearings in this country, for instance, were brought before the people by means of television.
Citizens sitting comfortably at home far from the scene could see how defense lawyers maneuvered facts or instructed
their clients (among whom were well-known crime bosses) so that they would appear in a favorable light. Even though
their actions may have been transparent tricks with the appearance of a fixed wrestling match, the result was that some
of the not-so-jovial-looking victims of the criminals were made ridiculous, while the criminals, calm, assured, self-
possessed, seemed more admirable. The victims often couldn't stand being in the limelight; it made them feel ill at
east and embarrassed. The criminals, on the other hand, either denied every accusation in tones of righteous
indignation or made confessions which degenerated into hysterical quests for pity. The magic effect of all the
anonymous onlookers -- because the witness or defendant imagined their approval or disapproval -- influenced the
outcome of the hearings. All of us who watched them brought our own subjective expectations to bear on these hearings.

Television makes a mass trial of such a hearing, and unwittingly not justice but the variable feelings of the public
become part of the courtroom atmosphere. Every piece of evidence in such a hearing is colored by rumor and emotion, and
the shocked onlookers are left with feelings of suspicion and deep misgivings that the hearing has not really gotten
down to the condemning facts.

The Quest for Detachment

Man's feeling for justice has very subtle implications. As soon as "Justitia" flirts with powerful friends or becomes
completely submissive, people feel insecure and their anxiety increases. But man's feeling for justice needs more than
mere security for its satisfaction and gratification. The sense of justice is an inner attitude aiming at the
realization of ideal rules of law that can inspire the community and raise it to a higher moral level. It requires not
merely that minimum of decent behavior that is enforced by law, but more than that a maximum of personal initiative and
mutual fair play. It asks for personal and social justice, for mutual limitation of demands in the service of the
mutuality of relations between men, and between men and their government. Any ideal feeling of justice requires
sacrifice and implies self-limitation. Emotionalism is its enemy. This ideal of justice is not only valid for
individuals but should also rule communities and countries. Only in such an atmosphere of free mutual sacrifice of
power on behalf of growing justice can democracy grow.

Can people learn to see objectively and in a manner detached from their personal feelings? Yes, they can. Preconceived
ways of seeing and witnessing can be changed. Many people realize the damage men do to themselves and others when they
submit to collective passion and prejudice. These people then learn through astute investigation and observation how to
be less prejudiced, how to see events with constant readaptation of mind and eye and with a search for reality.

Prisoners in concentration camps or P.O.W. camps are so constantly bombarded with rumors and suggestions, their
observations are so distorted by their necessary self-defenses, that they are hardly able to give an objective report
regarding the actions of their fellows. The mass attitude of the day directs their opinions. The fellow who has become
a scapegoat, whose function it is to alleviate for his fellow prisoners their common anger, will never be able to
neutralize all later reports about him, simply becasue the number of so-called objective witnesses is against him. It
is very difficult to separate the rumors from the facts and to neutralize ingrown mental toenails. There is in man an
instinctual need to take sides with the majority, to conform to the opinion of the strong. This need is rooted in a
biological urge for safety. That is why a strong feeling of participation grew among soldiers in a P.O.W. camp. The
result was complete unconscious falsification of what happened. The individual observation got lost in the strong
impact of mass opinion.

In the future age of psychology, when insight into man's behavior is more generally understood and applied, we will be
more aware of the importance of dependable witnesses. Every report and every piece of testimony pro or con will be
examined and weighed in the light of its psychological and historical background. The citizen of the future will laugh
as he looks back at the time once lost during trials because obvious facts on one side were not brought out to
challegne equally obvious facts on the opposing side. These future citizens will understand that we only revealed our
mutual hostilities and feelings of fear and insecurity by our behavior, feelings which moved us compulsively and subtly
to make subjective rearrangements of our memories and impressions. He will point out that objective thinking was in its
infancy in those days.

The Process of Purification


The process of Your evolution as well as that of the world and all the people in it is that of Purification.


We are a higherarchy of Functions mixed with Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass and these Functions which are composed of ordered Colonies of Angels are what underly the Physical Body, The Emotional Body, the Mental Body.


And also these Angel Colonies form the Spiritual Bodies which exist above the Crown Chakra and the center of the Universe.


It is the dense energy of Evil Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass which separate, wall off, stripe through and disorder these talent functions within themselves and which cause these functions to act with an evil egotistical interest separated from the energy of God in the Center of the Universe.


It is the dense energy of Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass which forms the ego which separates, walls off,  these talent functions from the energy of God in the Center of the Universe and from each other.


Thus the many histories of Dissociative Identity Disorder and Multiple Personality Disorder as many personalities can exist in One Mind as the various sub – personalities, separate minds, become walled off within the one mind by the evil Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass.


MPD and DID are the problems caused by and associated with the Organ Kundabuffer (Kundabuffer is an Energy Blockage which walls off one part of the Body or Emotions or Mind from another part), as Gurdjieff said, which cause all the problems of Humanity in this world.


Thus Gurdjieff said, “The guy who says he will get up at Four in the Morning is not the same Guy who throws the alarm clock out of the window!”


This reality is what powers the dark Side, “Divide and Conquer” said the Romans.


As one human being becomes infected with Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass so he becomes more and more evil like a Orc as defined by the Lord of the Rings. He becomes less intelligent, loses the ability to do anything and all his talents become desire filled, grasping, selfish, egotistical, psychopathic.


Because this separative nature of the ego which destroys Love the Will. Because Love and a functioning Will can only be ONE!


Thus the weapons of the dark side, Drugs, Sex, Violence and Rock and Roll which all cause separation, which all destroy Love and which all destroy the Will.


Talents have been formed as functions in every human being over many lifetimes these Talent Personalities become refined and really good at their job.


In the Unenlightened these Talents are contaminated by desire, grasping… The Selfish, Competitive EGO.


Sub – Personalities like the Star, the Poor Me and the Violator, are used to vampirise attention and energy in everyone around them. With Energy Enhancement these Star, the Poor Me and Violator Sub – Personalities become purified such that they are used intentionally for a good purpose.


For example charities use the Poor Me by using a photograph of starving people in order to excite compassion in people looking at the picture, so as to awaken the hearts of the people looking at the picture, in order gain the funds to help the starving people.


Then there is the egotistical connector Sub - Personality


Then there is the egotistical business Sub – Personality striped with Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass. We can characterize the Bad Business Sub – Personality as like Shylock in the Merchant of Venice..


Shakespeare actually wrote this play, “The Merchant of Venice” to excite compassion in the Hearts of the audience viewing the play for the Fall of Shylock. Even this Golem who destroys his own life and the life of his family through his evil actions deserves pity.


And I pity the egotistical Business Sub – Personality.. Filled with hate. A Miser who makes money his God to the detriment of all other functions. The egotistical Business Sub – Personality does what it does, mechanically with no thought for anything else. Only to hoard money. “Look at me!! I’ve got a Million Pounds!”


Enlightenment comes from Purification through..


  1. Alignment with the Energies of the Soul in Energy Enhancement Level 1 Initiation 4 and also in Energy Enhancement Level 1 Initiation 6 which intensifies the alignment of Initiation 4. As we absorb the energies of the Soul so we Supercharge the Physical, Emotional and Mental Bodies and throw out the Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass. The feeling of correct alignment is amazing – well loved by every student for its beneficial effects on every part of the Bodymind and for its Purificative effects.
  2. The Elimination of Energy Blockages which necessarily involves the Grounding of the Negative Energies of Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass.
  3. The Resurrection of the Purified Blockage Core into the Purified Angel Matrices, like pure Angel Crystal Functionality which exist in chakras above the head without any Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass without any pain. Total peace and purity. It is the true forgiveness of every bad thing we have every done or ever will do. This augmentation of Chakra Functionality and size, the ability to channel higher quantities and qualities of energy, creates the growing functionality of a larger Psychic Body. As Gurdjieff said, “The Coating of the Higher Being Body proper to a real Human Being”, of the many Enlightenment Initiations... Enlightenment, Guru or Master, World Teacher.. These Purified Blockage Cores come originally from the pre-enlightened person own body but later from their own Guru or Master’s Group and later still from World Transmission, World Transformation of every Soul on this planet.


Normally the Egotistical Business personality only wants money and so allies and aligns only with the impure and the corrupt in some shape or form. As they see the corruption they slowly change their practises higher and higher.


Until that time it is “Business as usual” based on contracts given by local and national government, based on laws created by National Government. For example trillions of Dollars each year are spent on..


  1. Research and development of new armaments, warplanes, satellites, Submarines, Warships, Ballistic Missiles, highly enriched Uranium, Fusion Bombs, created by private companies in the “Military Industrial Complex”.
  2. Armaments – Explosive Materiel, Napalm etc. created by private companies used in the useless Wars of Vietnam and Iraq whose only purpose was to create profits for the “Military Industrial Complex” as termed and warned about by President Eisenhower in 1960.
  3. War, the standing Army of those who, “ Make the sacrifice” and once the sacrifice is made are then forgotten about and cheated out of their pensions over, for example, “Gulf War Syndrome”. Used to keep totalitarian dictators in power so that Natural Resources – Petroleum, Metals, Uranium, Diamonds, can be corruptly and cheaply bought and to create future terrorists who are the cause of the necessity for totalitarian dictators and the slave repression of a Totalitarian Society. “You can fool most of the people most of the time, and this is enough in any democracy where you need a maximum of 51% of the vote” and probably less of the vote, because people who understand this information and are disgusted by the corruption of politicians, of the fact that all politicians have to take the Ring, to prove that they are corrupt and are trustworthy enough to, “Stay Bought” before being chosen in advance, so that there is no free choice of people to vote for, will never vote again.
  4. Petroleum – The creation of the Scarcity of Energy Business – Scare means Fear – so as to bump up the prices. One hour of sunlight shining on this planet is sufficient to power all industry, all homes on this planet, for 100 years. The Abundance of the energy of God above our heads is Infinite.
  5. Pharmaceuticals. A. Legal – prescribed by Doctors who are not taught by Pharma-bought, Chair Endowed, University Professors to treat with pharma-less 4000 year old Acupuncture or highly effective Homeopathy. And B. Illegal which only make money because they are kept illegal as in, “Prohibition” Massive trillion dollar Illegal profits are only possible with, “Prohibition”. It is possible for doctors to prescribe these “illegal” drugs freely to registered addicts as was done in Britain in the 1960’s which totally stops profits for Organised Crime. Such are the profits from legal and illegal drugs that most politicians who take briefs from lobbyists to vote for and speak out for the “Medical Industrial Complex” and “Prohibition” are feeding from the same Company Trough.


Inside every Human Being is the Egotistical Business Sub-Personality filled with Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass  who over many lifetimes has become an expert in money business.


There are psychological tests available to Psychologists which test the amount of Corruption, Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass, or the Propensity for Psychopathy, in any human being.


It is not easy to cheat on these tests which can be given to children, every year, to test that they are being cured of psychological problems by Energy Enhancement techniques.


Children have recorded examinations every year for all subjects. Why not test for psychopathy? Parents can independently test their children to help their future development. They can cure all problems before adulthood with Energy Enhancement techniques. Enlightened countries can do it, mandate it, by decree.


These tests and the records from childhood should become mandatorily transparent for any proposed politician or CEO or Professor in any country in the world, which will totally solve the corruption of the Egotistical Psychopathic Business Sub-Personality filled with Trauma – Formed Negative Karmic Mass.

"I am now in the last week of the course and I feel like a totally different person. I have regained myself and have been given from nothing having no psychic vision at all at the start of the energy enhancement course, a clarity of psychic vision that is breathtaking."

"As we practiced on each other we came very quickly to realise this. I could literally feel the energy moving inside each chakra as the other person worked within me from several meters away and when I worked on the other person I could see me projecting energy to them and could see where the blockages were within their chakras.

I could force the energy from my centres into their centres and clean their centre bringing the energy full circle back to me. You could tell the state of their chakras by the amount of energy returning to your own centre and this was achieved by mind power only.

Before I came here Satchi said he would teach me to do it in this way and I was sceptical about this claim. I could never envision me having psychic vision, but I have now, I can now do astonishingly powerful Reiki sessions on people without going any where near them and distance healing over any distance is a piece of cake, incredible stuff."


"I am totally de-stressed and have expanded in every way. I feel stronger and fitter and much more mentally agile than I have ever felt in my life. The fog and confusion of life has gone and I feel that I have just received the inside information on everything. I am ready for anything and am wide awake. I am full of the most incredible energy imaginable and have Energy Enhancement Reiki that is so powerful it staggers me. I know a thing or two about Reiki and had a very strong Reiki connection before I got here, now I have a connection that is beyond description and I have yet to undergo the second initiation this week and then the masters. I have opted to take this as an extra and for anyone who is interested, I believe this is beyond anything you will ever experienced anywhere."

I am now equipped with life tools and healing tools that one only dreams of and there is nothing out there in the world that will ever faze me again. I am absolutely delighted that I decided to come here, because this experience has changed me, for the good of me and for all those that I will touch when I leave here. I am so excited and can’t wait to start exploring my new found talents"
