Behind the Mask: Aliens or Cosmic Jokers?

Behind the Mask: Aliens or Cosmic Jokers?


In the 1970s, when we first became fascinated by the UFO phenomenon, opinion among researchers was divided between two views: the Extraterrestrial Hypothesis (ETH) – UFOs are spacecraft from other worlds; and the ‘Magonian Hypothesis’ (after the 1970 book by the intelligent Ufologists’ hero Jacques Vallée, Passport to Magonia). Pro-Magonians believe something from Earth is behind UFOs, a race of tricksters that surface from time to time as alleged angels, visions of the Virgin, demons, fairies – and now, space-travelling aliens? They’ve just updated their image.

The theory acknowledges the close parallels between alien encounters and experiences with non-human entities that litter the annals of folklore. But it also recognises the often-reported absurdity and pointlessness – the ‘high strangeness’ – which challenge the simplistic notion of UFOs as technological craft crewed by biological entities. It was this Monty Pythonesque quality that led investigator John A. Keel to develop his ‘ultraterrestrial’ hypothesis – the aliens are visitors from another plane of existence – outlined in the 1973 classic UFOs: Operation Trojan Horse.

However, since 1980 this approach has lost ground to the ETH – a pity, as it offers a more complete explanation of the whole phenomenon. Even ETH-ers usually acknowledge a paranormal component in alien contact, most obviously in the mental manipulation of abductees, often at a distance. There’s also the most direct psychic contact, the channelling of alleged extraterrestrial entities.

The ETH has become so dominant partly because the Magonian approach challenges our cherished consensus reality so outrageously, whereas the concept of space ships from other planets doesn’t. Also, high-profile cases such as Roswell, Area 51 and Majestic 12 – all firmly based on the ET interpretation and centred on government conspiracies and cover-ups – came to dominate Ufology in the 1980s. But paradoxically they derive from the very agencies allegedly behind the conspiracy. In fact, trace any famous case back to its source and you will find that one way or another it originated within the military and intelligence community.

(It always amazes us that Ufologists often obey the unwritten rule: never believe anything that anyone in government, the military or the intelligence community tells you – unless it’s that UFOs are real ETs in secret contact with world authorities. Then believe everything they tell you…)

In fact, far from trying to cover up the existence of UFOs, government agencies have actively encouraged belief in them – specifically the ETH. Our own research has convinced us that this ‘Federal Hypothesis’ is the most accurate, and indeed there is a groundswell of similar opinion, as seen in Mark Pilkington’s recent Mirage Men and Lynn’s Mammoth Book of UFOs (2001). It does seem the whole UFO thing has been exploited – maybe even invented – to provide a convenient cover for all sorts of black ops, from testing secret aircraft to psychological warfare experiments. Even this, however, barely scrapes the surface of the sinister goings-on associated with over six decades of UFO research.

Enter the Nine

In the late 1990s we researched a story packed with all the paradoxes and questions just discussed, as detailed in our The Stargate Conspiracy (1999, updated 2000). These events represent either the biggest and most concerted attempt yet at extraterrestrial intervention – or a criminal manipulation of the belief in it. Either way, it’s sensational and terrifying.

The central character is the American Army physician and parapsychologist Andrija Puharich (1918-1995) who experimented with stimulating psychic abilities using hypnosis, psychoactive drugs and electrical devices. He was also obsessed with the possibility of psychic communication with non-human intelligences.

In 1948 – after being discharged from the army on medical grounds – Puharich created the Round Table Foundation in Maine, to carry out ostensibly private experiments with psychics such as Eileen Garrett and Peter Hurkos. The Foundation soon attracted wealthy backers, even including Henry A. Wallace, Vice President of the USA under Franklin D. Roosevelt, who funded Puharich through his Wallace Foundation. Another supporter was Ruth Forbes Young, from the stupendously rich Forbes family, and her husband, the ubiquitous inventor Arthur M. Young, besides Alice Bouverie, heiress to the Astor dynasty.

From research in the 1990s we now know Puharich’s Round Table Foundation was also covertly funded by the US Army. He himself recorded several visits from military top brass, including the head of psychological warfare research. So was it a front for military psi experiments on civilian psychics, with his discharge merely a cover?

Puharich was a passionate advocate of the military use of psi, presenting the paper: ‘An Evaluation of the Possible Usefulness of Extrasensory Perception in Psychological Warfare’ to the Pentagon in November 1952. He was redrafted the very next day…

But before taking up his duties, a seminal event occurred at the Round Table Foundation. Puharich’s team were working with the Indian channeller Dr. D.G. Vinod, who on New Year’s Eve 1952 declared, in trance, “We are Nine Principles and Forces,” going on to channel them. The Nine described themselves as separate entities that function as one – claiming (with typical lack of modesty and lofty disdain for mere mortal grammar): “God is nobody else than we together, the Nine Principles of God. There is no God other than what we are together.” The communications continued for six months until Vinod’s return to India.

Deeper and Darker

In parallel with the Vinod communications, from February 1953 until April 1955, Puharich was stationed at the Army’s Chemical Centre at Edgewood, Maryland – although he often returned to the Round Table Foundation. The exact nature of his duties remains unknown, but Edgewood was the Army’s research facility into both chemical and psychological warfare – and at that time it was involved with a joint project with the CIA’s notorious MK-ULTRA.1 Puharich’s Army career certainly puts a different spin on the debut of the Nine.

In 1956 the extraterrestrial element was spliced to the story. In Mexico, Puharich and Arthur Young encountered Charles and Lillian Laughead, who were working with a young man who claimed to be in psychic contact with aliens. The Laugheads sent Puharich messages from these ETs, containing cross-references to the earlier Vinod communications, apparently revealing that the same cosmic intelligences were contacting different people.

In the 1960s Puharich devoted himself to parapsychological research and the development of patented medical devices. Then, in 1970, Puharich met Uri Geller in Israel, becoming convinced that his spoonbending and other talents were genuine. When he experimentally hypnotised Geller, the young Israeli channelled the entity ‘Spectra’, allegedly a conscious computer aboard a far-distant spaceship. Spectra said ETs had programmed Geller with his powers as a toddler, and effectively anointed him as a new Messiah for coming world changes, stating, “He is the only one for the next fifty years to come.”

When Puharich then asked the somewhat leading question, “Are you of the Nine Principles that once spoke through Dr Vinod?” Spectra unsurprisingly replied, “Yes.” It then confirmed that the Nine were behind UFOs, right from Kenneth Arnold’s seminal 1947 sighting.

‘Oddly Monotonous Miracles’

The hypnosis sessions and Spectra channellings continued, while strange phenomena dogged Puharich and Geller. In what Colin Wilson calls “a confusion of oddly monotonous miracles”2 machine-like voices spoke out of thin air, objects dematerialised and teleported (including Puharich’s dog – and once Geller himself). And several UFOs appeared over Tel Aviv and the Sinai desert.

However, although Geller confirms the paranormality, he distances himself from the channelling. And although Puharich seemed convinced that Spectra and the Nine were real, Geller calls them “a civilisation of clowns”3 – a perfect description of the Ultraterrestrial/Cosmic Joker scenario.

Puharich arranged for Geller to be tested at SRI International, the Californian institute where CIA-backed ‘psychic spying’ research – most famously remote viewing – was being conducted. In fact, during our research for The Stargate Conspiracy Geller told us Puharich was working for the CIA when he visited Israel to evaluate him. Another associate of Puharich’s, the physicist Jack Sarfatti, also confirmed it. Given his background, Puharich would of course have been their ideal head-hunter.

Just as in the first contact with the Nine twenty years before we discover paranormal research secretly backed by military intelligence – which again centres on channelling the Nine… Perfect symmetry – but what does it mean?

Exit the Messiahs

Despite Puharich’s efforts to promote Geller as the Messiah of a new phase in human evolution, he bowed out in 1973, having risen to international superstardom. But the Nine continued to reach Puharich through new channellers. They seemed to forget they once declared Geller “the only one to come for the next fifty years.” First there was a young chef known only as ‘Bobby Horne’ who, hypnotised by Puharich, channelled the extraterrestrial ‘Corean’ – who agreed with Puharich’s suggestion that he/she/it was an emissary of the Nine. Horne was driven to the brink of suicide by the experience.

He was replaced by medium Phyllis Schlemmer who was appointed the Nine’s official ‘transceiver’, a position she maintained for the next twenty years. Her guide ‘Tom’, who she had assumed was the spirit of her grandfather, suddenly announced he was an extraterrestrial and one of the Nine – now the ‘Council of Nine’.

After Geller’s departure, Puharich established a new research facility in New Jersey, ‘Lab Nine’. This became the focus for two related series of events.

First there was the mission of alerting the world to the Council of Nine’s existence and imminent return through mass landings of spaceships in the late 1970s. An important new player was the wealthy English baronet and spiritual seeker, Sir John Whitmore, a former racing driver.

There was a concerted effort to get the Nine’s message to a wider audience, besides enticing influential individuals to hear Schlemmer dispense their cosmic wisdom. They included scientists interested in the interface between quantum physics and consciousness besides members of super-rich families, politicians and writers.

But the biggest name was undoubtedly Gene Roddenberry, creator of Star Trek, who was involved with the Nine in 1974 to ‘75. Clearly hoping to exploit his cult status, Puharich urged him to write a movie screenplay about the Nine, although it was never finished. How far Roddenberry believed in or trusted them is unclear.

Although it’s claimed that Roddenberry’s Lab Nine experiences had some influence over the first Star Trek movie and the Next Generation series a decade later (with its nine central characters), besides the Deep Space Nine spin-off, the series that undoubtedly reveals most about Roddenberry’s attitude to the Nine is his last, Earth: Final Conflict (1997-2002), produced after his death. This is set in the near future where an advanced alien race, the Taelon, arrive on Earth claiming to help mankind, but some humans are suspicious that they’re really bent on conquest…

Roddenberry had turned the discarnate Nine into flesh-and-blood aliens – and the Taelon are ruled by a Synod or Council. Although the plot seemingly reflects his uncertainty about the Nine, since his death in 1991 Phyllis Schlemmer still claims he was unknowingly influenced by the Nine when creating the original Star Trek series.

However, it was in response to a question by Roddenberry that ‘Tom’ finally revealed his – and the Nine’s – real identity. He was none other than Atum, chief god of the ancient Egyptian ‘Great Ennead’, the nine gods and goddesses beloved of the pyramid builders. However, perhaps it should be pointed out that after Vinod’s first contact, Puharich had begun to study the Ennead.

The other project at Lab Nine was more disturbing. Using various techniques including hypnosis, he also got a group of children – the ‘Space Kids’ – to remote view political and military targets such as the Kremlin, and tried to make them channel alien intelligences.

Virtually nothing is known about this project. The only record consists of visitors’ comments, disturbingly noting that some of the kids were clearly traumatised by the experience. As this happened in parallel with the CIA-backed remote viewing programme, it seems a way of involving children without arousing suspicions. After all, which would you be most ok with: sending your kids to a cool camp to become the new Uri Geller – or waving them off into the care of the CIA and military somewhere secret?

In 1978 it all fell apart: Lab Nine mysteriously burned down, and Puharich fled to Mexico, claiming he was being targeted… by the CIA! Perhaps they feared revelations about the Space Kids through a scandal involving his associate Ira Einhorn, who was being investigated for the murder of his former girlfriend Holly Maddux (for which he was subsequently convicted). At the time of her disappearance, Maddux possessed papers relating to the Space Kids research. (Puharich returned to the USA three years later – odd for someone who feared assassination by the CIA – and continued his paranormal research, although apparently playing no further part in the Nine story. He died in 1995.)

Onwards and Downwards

The Council of Nine continues its mission. Schlemmer/Tom’s 1992 book, The Only Planet of Choice, remains a New Age bestseller, and although no longer actively channelling the Nine, she still promotes their message. Given she had been in touch with these ‘ancient gods’ almost daily since 1975, her book of just under 400 pages is clearly somewhat selective.

Then the Nine entered the big time. In 1978 Whitmore introduced Englishwoman Jenny O’Connor to the Esalen Institute, the Californian centre for the alternative scene that attracted famous names from the worlds of art, entertainment, science and even politics. Incredibly, not only did the Nine give seminars at Esalen through her, but from 1979 until at least 1982 they effectively took over the Institute. In Esalen: America and the Religion of No Religion (2007), Jeffrey J. Kripal describes the founder Richard Price’s reliance on O’Connor: “Dick decided to ask Jenny and the Nine to help him make tough administrative decisions, which included firing and hiring individuals.” Esalen staff member and Price’s biographer Eric Erickson describes the Nine as “extraterrestrial hatchet men.”

This period was particularly significant for Esalen. Many of those who attended O’Connor’s seminars became prominent in political circles both in America and the USSR (through the Institute’s Soviet Exchange Program), as Jack Sarfatti wrote (his emphasis):

The fact remains… that a bunch of apparently California New Age flakes into UFOs and psychic phenomena, including myself, had made their way into the highest levels of the American ruling class and the Soviet Union and today run the Gorbachev Foundation.5

It was through O’Connor that the Nine reached Washington, including the circles from which Al Gore – an unashamed fan of the paranormal – was to emerge. It isn’t known how much he was influenced by the Nine, but some of his associates – including his political mentor Senator Claiborne Pell – were certainly interested in their pronouncements. It’s a chilling thought that if Gore had become President, who – or what – would have influenced him?

Joking Apart

The Nine represent the most concerted effort ever to manufacture and sell a system of belief based on extraterrestrial contact. Built up over five decades, it involved persuading prominent politicians and cultural leaders of their reality and impending return, besides attempting to make them known globally through books and movies. This campaign was most successful in the New Age subculture, which is still largely – and unquestioningly – in thrall to the Nine.

The Nine’s communications exhibit all the classic ambiguities and difficulties of alleged alien contact. At the very least they’re ‘anomalous’ – ostensibly extraterrestrial but laced with more traditional paranormality. And behind it all is the shadowy presence of government agencies.

The facts outlined above fit two different scenarios. The first – preferred by the Nine devotees – is that the Nine are genuinely advanced ETs who created the human species and guided its development, and who were worshipped as gods in ancient Egypt. And now humankind has reached a crisis point through its own folly, they are about to return to get us out of the mess and (somewhat contradictorily) to launch humanity into the next evolutionary level.

There are good reasons to doubt this explanation. Analysis of the Nine’s pronouncements reveals too many internal inconsistencies, besides often ridiculous historical and scientific errors. So what about the second scenario? Given Puharich’s sinister background, could the whole thing have been an experiment into the creation and manipulation of channelled contact? It is clear even from his own account that he directed the channelling, often asking leading questions of hypnotised channellers. And there is evidence suggesting that he also used chemical and electronic techniques.

Was it all just an experiment to see how apparent contact with non-human intelligences could be induced, manipulated and exploited? If so, what do we make of the evidence from the late 1970s of the concerted effort to construct a new religion centred on the Nine? Like every cult, however, true power would lie with the ‘priesthood’ led by Puharich and his cohorts.

But even that scenario, it seems to us, fails to cover the facts. There seems little doubt that something genuinely paranormal was happening. The British writer Stuart Holroyd, for example, was persuaded to write a book about the Nine – Prelude to the Landing on Planet Earth (1977) – after experiencing poltergeist-type activity in his house. This is harder to ascribe to CIA manipulation – unless we assume the CIA can induce paranormal events. And, of course, the Nine communications continued even after Puharich’s involvement, through several individuals. They include James J. Hurtak, Puharich’s second-in-command at Lab Nine and Carla Rueckert, a paranormal researcher who collaborated with him. Both produced books of channelled material from the same source – whatever that might have been. Hurtak’s The Keys of Enoch (1977) and Reuckert’s The Ra Material (1984) have both been New Age best sellers.

Puharich wrote, “I do not doubt that discarnate intelligences exist, any more than I doubt that finite carnate intelligences exist.”6 But as someone who made a specific study of the subject, even becoming a kahuna, an initiate of Hawaiian shamanism, he must have known always to be on guard against trickster spirits – what Colin Wilson memorably called (in his introduction to Prelude to the Landing on Planet Earth) the “crooks and conmen of the spirit world.”7  

Perhaps Puharich was indeed directing events, but was experimenting as much on the Nine as he was on their human channels – trying to discover how to sort the wheat from the chaff among discarnate entities. Or maybe even (terrifying thought) to find out if the entities themselves can be manipulated and controlled. But if true, what would it mean for the involvement of the military and intelligence agencies? Are they trying to establish a relationship with such beings?

‘An Awful Lot of Trouble’

If, as the evidence increasingly suggests, the CIA and military are not trying to suppress belief in alien contact but to encourage it, why would they? The assumption of most advocates of the Federal Hypothesis is that those agencies want to use the phenomenon and people’s belief in it as a smokescreen for their own covert purposes. In other words, if the CIA want us to think UFOs exist then the truth is that they don’t. But in our view, there is another even more unsettling reason: they want us to think UFOs are extraterrestrial nuts-and-bolts machines and the aliens are flesh-and-blood in order to divert attention from the reality that the real ‘aliens’ co-exist invisibly with us on the Earth – and are the source of all cases of high strangeness.

Jacques Vallée, one of the first to research the covert manipulation of the UFO scenario by official agencies, concluded: “someone is going to an awful lot of trouble to convince the world that we are threatened by beings from outer space.”8 But how does this fit in with his Magonian hypothesis? Vallée presented his most explicit statement of the big picture in the storyline of his 1996 novel Fastwalker (written with Tracy Tormé): a powerful group of human conspirators know that the UFO phenomenon is created by entities from a parallel world, but they aim to convince world leaders and the global population of the existence of ‘aliens’ – and then position themselves as the world’s go-betweens.

Which is basically our own view of the case of the Council of Nine: they have the stamp of the Ultraterrestrial all over them – clowns, conmen and cosmic jokers – but there is also the pernicious presence of very human agencies lurking in the background. The joke is on all those who follow the Ultraterrestrials, however they choose to manifest themselves or however their human allies choose to present them to us. But, as history has shown, it may be no laughing matter.

10 Ways to Protect Yourself From NLP Mind Control

10 Ways to Protect Yourself From NLP Mind Control

NLP or Neuro-Linguistic Programming is one of the world’s most prevalent methods of mind control, used by everyone from sales callers to politicians to media pundits, and it’s nasty to the core. Here’s ten ways to make sure nobody uses it on you… ever.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) is a method for controlling people’s minds that was invented by Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the 1970s, became popular in the psychoanalytic, occult and New Age worlds in the 1980s, and advertising, marketing and politics in the 1990s and 2000s. It’s become so interwoven with how people are communicated to and marketed at that its use is largely invisible. It’s also somewhat of a pernicious, devilish force in the world—nearly everybody in the business of influencing people has studied at least some of its techniques. Masters of it are notorious for having a Rasputin-like ability to trick people in incredible ways—most of all themselves.

After explaining a bit about what NLP is and where it came from, I’m going to break down 10 ways to inoculate yourself against its use. You’ll likely be spotting it left, right and center in the media with a few tips on what to look for. Full disclosure: During my 20s, I spent years studying New Age, magical and religious systems for changing consciousness. One of them was NLP. I’ve been on both ends of the spectrum: I’ve had people ruthlessly use NLP to attempt to control me, and I’ve also trained in it and even used it in the advertising world. Despite early fascination, by 2008 or so I had largely come to the conclusion that it’s next to useless—a way of manipulating language that greatly overestimates its own effectiveness as a discipline, really doesn’t achieve much in the way of any kind of lasting change, and contains no real core of respect for people or even true understanding of how people work.

After throwing it to the wayside, however, I became convinced that understanding NLP is crucial simply so that people can resist its use. It’s kind of like the whole PUA thing that was popular in the mid-00s—a group of a few techniques that worked for a few unscrupulous people until the public figured out what was going on and rejected it, like the body identifying and rejecting foreign material.

What is NLP, and where did it come from?

“Neuro-linguistic programming” is a marketing term for a “science” that two Californians—Richard Bandler and John Grinder—came up with in the 1970s. Bandler was a stoner student at UC Santa Cruz (just like I later was in the 00s), then a mecca for psychedelics, hippies and radical thinking (now a mecca for Silicon Valley hopefuls). Grinder was at the time an associate professor in linguistics at the university (he had previously served as a Captain in the US Special Forces and in the intelligence community, ahem not that this, you know, is important… aheh…). Together, they worked at modeling the techniques of Fritz Perls (founder of Gestalt therapy), family therapist Virginia Satir and, most importantly, the preternaturally gifted hypnotherapist Milton Erickson. Bandler and Grinder sought to reject much of what they saw as the ineffectiveness of talk therapy and cut straight to the heart of what techniques actually worked to produce behavioral change. Inspired by the computer revolution—Bandler was a computer science major—they also sought to develop a psychological programming language for human beings.

What they came up with was a kind of evolution of hypnotherapy—while classical hypnosis depends on techniques for putting patients into suggestive trances (even to the point of losing consciousness on command), NLP is much less heavy-handed: it’s a technique of layering subtle meaning into spoken or written language so that you can implant suggestions into a person’s unconscious mind without them knowing what you’re doing.

Though mainstream therapists rejected NLP as pseudoscientific nonsense (it has been officially peer reviewed and discredited as an intervention technique—lots more on that here), it nonetheless caught on. It was still the 1970s, and the Human Potential Movement was in full swing—and NLP was the new darling. Immediately building a publishing, speaking and training empire, by 1980 Bandler had made over $800,000 from his creation—he was even being called on to train corporate leaders, the army and the CIA. Self-help gurus like Tony Robbins used NLP techniques to become millionaires in the 1980s (Robbins now has an estimated net worth of $480 million). By the middle of the decade, NLP was such big business that lawsuits and wars had erupted over who had the rights to teach it, or even to use the term “NLP.”

But by that time, Bandler had bigger problems than copyright disputes: he was on trial for the alleged murder of prostitute Corine Christensen in November 1986. The prosecution claimed that Bandler had shot Christensen, 34, point-blank in the face with a .357 Magnum in a drug deal gone bad. According to the press at the time, Bandler had discovered an even better way to get people to like him than NLP—cocaine—and become embroiled in a far darker game, even, than mind control. A much-recommended investigation into the case published by Mother Jones in 1989 opens with these chilling lines:

In the morning Corine Christensen last snorted cocaine, she found herself, straw in hand, looking down the barrel of a .357 Magnum revolver. When the gun exploded, momentarily piercing the autumn stillness, it sent a single bullet on a diagonal path through her left nostril and into her brain.

Christensen slumped over her round oak dining table, bleeding onto its glass top, a loose-leaf notebook, and a slip of yellow memo paper on which she had scrawled, in red ink, DON’T KILL US ALL. Choking, she spit blood onto a wine goblet, a tequila bottle, and the shirt of the man who would be accused of her murder, then slid sideways off the chair and fell on her back. Within minutes she lay still.

As Christensen lay dying, two men left her rented town house in a working-class section of Santa Cruz, California. One was her former boyfriend, James Marino, an admitted cocaine dealer and convicted burglar. The other, Richard Bandler, was known internationally as the cofounder of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), a controversial approach to psychology and communication. About 12 hours later, on the evening of November 3, 1986, Richard Bandler was arrested and charged with the murder.

Bandler’s defense was, simply, that Marino had killed Christensen, not him. Many at the time alleged he used NLP techniques on the stand to escape conviction. Yet Bandler was also alleged to actually use a gun in NLP sessions in order to produce dramatic psychological changes in clients—a technique that was later mirrored by Hollywood in the movie Fight Club, in which Brad Pitt’s character pulls a gun on a gas station attendant and threatens to kill him if he doesn’t pursue his dreams in life. That was, many said, Bandler’s MO.

Whatever the truth of the matter, Bandler was indeed let off, and the story was quickly buried—I’ve never spoken to a student of NLP who’s ever heard of the murder case, I’ll note, and I’ve spoken to a lot. The case hardly impeded the growing popularity of NLP, however, which was now big business, working its way not only into the toolkit of psychotherapists but also into nearly every corner of the political and advertising worlds, having grown far beyond the single personage of Richard Bandler, though he continued (and continues) to command outrageous prices for NLP trainings throughout the world.

Today, the techniques of NLP and Ericksonian-style hypnotic writing can be readily seen in the world of Internet marketing, online get-rich-quick schemes and scams. (For more on this, see the excellent article Scamworld: ‘Get rich quick’ schemes mutate into an online monster by my friend Joseph Flatley, one of the best articles I’ve ever read on the Web.) Their most prominent public usage has likely been by Barack Obama, whose 2008 “Change” campaign was a masterpiece of Ericksonian permissive hypnosis. The celebrity hypnotist and illusionist Derren Brown also demonstrates NLP techniques in his routine.

How exactly does this thing work?

NLP is taught in a pyramid structure, with the more advanced techniques reserved for multi-thousand-dollar seminars. To oversimplify an overcomplicated subject, it more or less works like this: first, the user (or “NLPer,” as NLP people often refer to themselves—and I should note here that the large majority of NLP people, especially those who are primarily therapists, are likely well-meaning) of NLP pays very, very close attention to the person they’re working with. By watching subtle cues like eye movement, skin flush, pupil dilation and nervous tics, a skilled NLP person can quickly determine:

a) What side of the brain a person is predominantly using;

b) What sense (sight, smell, etc.) is most predominant in their brain;

c) How their brain stores and utilizes information (ALL of this can be gleaned from eye movements);

d) When they’re lying or making information up.

After this initial round of information gathering, the “NLPer” begins to slowly and subtly mimic the client, taking on not only their body language but also their speech mannerisms, and will begin speaking with language patterns designed to target the client’s primary sense.

An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.

For instance, a person predominantly focused on sight will be spoken to in language using visual metaphors—”Do you see what I’m saying?” “Look at it this way”—while a person for which hearing is the dominant sense will be spoken to in auditory language—”Hear me out,” “I’m listening to you closely.”

By mirroring body language and linguistic patterns, the NLPer is attempting to achieve one very specific response: rapport. Rapport is the mental and physiological state that a human enters when they let their social guard down, and it is generally achieved when a person comes to the conclusion that the person they’re talking to is just like them. See how that works, broadly? An NLP person essentially carefully fakes the social cues that cause a person to drop their guard and enter a state of openness and suggestibility.

Once rapport is achieved, the NLPer will then begin subtly leading the interaction. Having mirrored the other person, they can now make subtle changes to actually influence the other person’s behavior. Combined with subtle language patterns, leading questions and a whole slew of other techniques, a skilled NLPer can at this point steer the other person wherever they like, as long as the other person isn’t aware of what’s happening and thinks everything is arising organically, or has given consent. That means it’s actually fairly hard to use NLP to get people to act out-of-character, but it can be used for engineering responses within a person’s normal range of behavior—like donating to a cause, making a decision they were putting off, or going home with you for the night if they might have considered it anyway.

From this point, the NLPer will seek to do two things—elicit and anchorEliciting happens when an NLPer uses leading and language to engineer an emotional state—for instance, hunger. Once a state has been elicited, the NLPer can then anchor it with a physical cue—for instance, touching your shoulder. In theory, if done right, the NLPer can then call up the hungry state any time they touch your shoulder in the same way. It’s conditioning, plain and simple.

How can I make sure nobody pulls this horseshit on me?

I’ve had all kinds of people attempt to “NLP” me into submission, including multiple people I’ve worked for over extended periods of time, and even people I’ve been in relationships with. Consequently, I’ve developed a pretty keen immune response to it. I’ve also studied its mechanics very closely, largely to resist the nonsense of said people. Here’s a few key methods I’ve picked up.

1. Be extremely wary of people copying your body language.

If you’re talking to somebody who may be into NLP, and you notice that they’re sitting in exactly the same way as you, or mirroring the way you have your hands, test them by making a few movements and seeing if they do the same thing. Skilled NLPers will be better at masking this than newer ones, but newer ones will always immediately copy the same movement. This is a good time to call people on their shit.

2. Move your eyes in random and unpredictable patterns.

This is freaking hilarious to do to troll NLPers. Especially in the initial stages of rapport induction, an NLP user will be paying incredibly close attention to your eyes. You may think it’s because they’re intensely interested in what you’re saying. They are, but not because they actually care about your thoughts: They’re watching your eye movements to see how you store and access information. In a few minutes, they’ll not only be able to tell when you’re lying or making something up, they’ll also be able to figure out what parts of your brain you’re using when you’re speaking, which can then lead them to be so clued in to what you’re thinking that they almost come across as having some kind of psychic insight into your innermost thoughts. A clever hack for this is just to randomly dart your eyes around—look up to the right, to the left, side to side, down… make it seem natural, but do it randomly and with no pattern. This will drive an NLP person utterly nuts because you’ll be throwing off their calibration.

3. Do not let anybody touch you.

This is pretty obvious and kind of goes without saying in general. But let’s say you’re having a conversation with somebody you know is into NLP, and you find yourself in a heightened emotional state—maybe you start laughing really hard, or get really angry, or something similar—and the person you’re talking to touches you while you’re in that state. They might, for instance, tap you on the shoulder. What just happened? They anchored you so that later, if they want to put you back into the state you were just in, they can (or so the wayward logic of NLP dictates) touch you in the same place. Just be like, oh hell no you did not.

4. Be wary of vague language.

One of the primary techniques that NLP took from Milton Erickson is the use of vague language to induce hypnotic trance. Erickson found that the more vague language is, the more it leads people into trance, because there is less that a person is liable to disagree with or react to. Alternately, more specific language will take a person out of trance. (Note Obama’s use of this specific technique in the “Change” campaign, a word so vague that anybody could read anything into it.)

5. Be wary of permissive language.

“Feel free to relax.” “You’re welcome to test drive this car if you like.” “You can enjoy this as much as you like.” Watch the f*k out for this. This was a major insight of pre-NLP hypnotists like Erickson: the best way to get somebody to do something, including going into a trance, is by allowing them to give you permission to do so. Because of this, skilled hypnotists will NEVER command you outright to do something—i.e. “Go into a trance.” They WILL say things like “Feel free to become as relaxed as you like.”

6. Be wary of gibberish.

Nonsense phrases like “As you release this feeling more and more you will find yourself moving into present alignment with the sound of your success more and more.” This kind of gibberish is the bread and butter of the pacing-and-leading phase of NLP; the hypnotist isn’t actually saying anything, they’re just trying to program your internal emotional states and move you towards where they want you to go. ALWAYS say “Can you be more specific about that” or “Can you explain exactly what you mean?” This does two things: it interrupts this whole technique, and it also forces the conversation into specific language, breaking the trance-inducing use of vague language we discussed in #4.

7. Read between the lines.

NLP people will consistently use language with hidden or layered meanings. For instance “Diet, nutrition and sleep with me are the most important things, don’t you think?” On the surface, if you heard this sentence quickly, it would seem like an obvious statement that you would probably agree with without much thought. Yes, of course diet, nutrition and sleep are important things, sure, and this person’s really into being healthy, that’s great. But what’s the layered-in message? “Diet, nutrition and sleep with me are the most important things, don’t you think?” Yep, and you just unconsciously agreed to it. Skilled NLPers can be incredibly subtle with this.

8. Watch your attention.

Be very careful about zoning out around NLP people—it’s an invitation to leap in with an unconscious cue. Here’s an example: An NLP user who was attempting to get me to write for his blog for free noticed I appeared not to be paying attention and was looking into the distance, and then started using the technique listed in #7 by talking about how he never has to pay for anything because media outlets send him review copies of books and albums for free. “Everything for free,” he began hissing at me. “I get everything. For. Free.” Obvious, no?

9. Don’t agree to anything.

If you find yourself being led to make a quick decision on something, and feel you’re being steered, leave the situation. Wait 24 hours before making any decisions, especially financial ones. Do NOT let yourself get swept up into making an emotional decision in the spur of the moment. Sales people are armed with NLP techniques specifically for engineering impulse buys. Don’t do it. Leave, and use your rational mind.

10. Trust your intuition.

And the foremost and primary rule: If your gut tells you somebody is fucking with you, or you feel uneasy around them, trust it. NLP people almost always seem “off,” dodgy, or like used car salesmen. Flee, or request they show you the respect of not applying NLP techniques when interacting with you.

Hopefully this short guide will be of assistance to you in resisting this annoying and pernicious modern form of black magic. Take it with you on your phone or a printout next time you’re at a used car sales lot, getting signed up for a gym membership, or watching a politician speak on TV. You’ll easily find yourself surprised how you allow yourself to notice more and more NLP techniques… more and more… don’t you think?

Today we all work for #CharlieHebdo

So, should the drawings match the description? Or maybe it would have changed something had he been replaced by an empty space, or a turban, or a question mark? This would have been the most ludicrous of caricatures, and is not how Charlie works. Must we feel morally obliged to respect Muhammed, as his most fervent followers would have us do? No more than we have moral obligation to respect Jesus or Moses. There are some in France who feel that by drawing the Islamic prophet we are pushing the boundaries too far. These are the same people who are indulgent towards Islam. Yet it is an indulgence tinged with contempt as they are convinced that this particular religion is stuck in a time well before the Enlightenment. Because they pander to the most narrow minded Muslims – those who can’t even see how they are being patronised – they lead these men and women on to chase the false hope of one day living in a France where ‘blasphemy’ is made illegal. This book is for neither group. In fact, it is for the countless more reserved individuals out there, who haven’t traded in their sense of humour for the unsmiling grouch of those self-proclaimed guardians of the truth who are ready to take up arms in defence of an unwritten law. After all, is Islam not a religion of the written word? Here’s a challenge: may he who finds the section of text within the Qur’an or the sunnah wherein it is forbidden to draw Muhammad, or anyone for that matter, cast the first stone. It’s not because  Charlie is concerned with abiding by Islamic precepts, but more by dint of combing through the source material, that it turns out that this most unshakeable of taboos within Islam, a religion that relies on the written word as proof of Allah’s teachings, is based on nothing. A taboo that has people protesting in the streets, in the name of which crimes are committed; a taboo which has long seen Charlie relegated to the fires of hell by groups of Shi’ite Muslims. Yet Persian illuminations show a turbaned Muhammad sitting cross-legged as he conveys his teachings…

In France it is still considered subversive to not comply with supposed religious proscription, the same France that not too long ago was at loggerheads with the Catholics. In this book, the atheistic, secular, universalist and antiracist Charlie offers you a French-style reworking of the history of a religion that has taken root in France. Herein lies the story of Muhammad, as told by his faithful followers, because it is important for the layman to know the story of a man who changed the course of History.

The Story of Tania Hossack, an Australian #MKULTRA Subject

The Story of Tania Hossack, an Australian MKULTRA Subject


The following is an e-mail I received from Tania Hossack of Queensland, Australia in 2013.  Based on its contents, I am certain that Tania is the subject of a classified non-consensual mind control program.  The e-mail is presented with her express permission in its original, unedited form, with the following exceptions:

  1. I have added paragraph spacing to improve presentation and readability.
  2. I have added numbered footnotes at key points in the text, to which I refer in my commentary which follows the e-mail.  These are shown bold and in a different color than the original text.
  3. At Tania’s request, I have deleted her last name from the text.   March 13, 2014 update: At Tania’s request, her last name is no longer being withheld.

Below the e-mail and footnotes is a letter that Tania wrote to a psychiatrist to whom she had been involuntarily referred (under Australia’s Mental Health Act) by the hospital where she was admitted.

Tania’s 2013 e-mail to Jeff

(Received October 8, 2013)

In November 2012 I had what I believed contact with spirit world. Seeing the clock at 11:11 twice a day for days on end (1), telepath (2) and many coincidences (3). I had similar experience over Easter 2011, however November 2012 was more intense. It felt like God had chosen me to save the world (4). 

I had visions in which the following day I would be sent a picture of what my vision was on my facebook page from unknown people (5). These pictures showed planetary alignment (6) over Giza pyramids (7), full moon eclipse and the Mayan calendar end date (8). I had never heard of the Mayan calendar previously. These pictures were what I had seen in my visions. 

I was absolutely certain the spirit world and God were contacting me. On 28 November a friend came over and she thought I was having a mental breakdown and called an ambulance. In the ambulance the officer placed what appeared to be beige coloured skin/medical patches on both my forearms (9). In the centre of the patches were metal rods of about 2 inches in height with rounded ends. I wanted to ask the officer what they were for but I was unable to speak. He called out to the driver that my blood pressure was normal. He had not used a blood pressure device to check it though. (10)

Once at the hospital several people who I assumed at the time were doctors and nurses asked me odd questions. I was asked if I had a uterus and if I knew where I had gotten the chemicals from that were in my body. I wasn't given the time to answer or ask questions, they walked away (11). I was given a quartz crystal by the nurse (12). I remember being wide awake and wanting to know what was going on. 

The next thing I knew I was waking up and could not breathe (13). I then saw bits and pieces of my life as though I was seeing it on a large screen before completely waking up (14). A female came over and checked the patches on my forearms, pulled the blanket back over my shoulders and walked away. Two men in dark blue suits came and stood on each side of the doorway about 7 meters from me. One of them kept turning around smiling at me and telling me via telepathy that everything was okay (15). 

I had not been pregnant but I then felt two babies being born, about 5 minutes between each one. It was not painful but I definitely felt the sensation of them coming out. I looked but could not see any babies (16). The lady returned and took the patches off my forearms. 

I don't know how I got from being on a hospital bed to all of a sudden on a higher level of the hospital walking down a corridor with the 2 men in blue suits beside me. I then felt terrified. As soon as I felt this, the 2 men told me via telepathy not to be frightened (17). I was put into a room. It was after 11pm. I had arrived at the hospital about 10am. 

I have about 13 hours of missing time (18). I felt fine in the morning and was about to eat breakfast on a balcony when a friends father who had passed away about 17 years prior came out and greeted me. I felt amazed to see him. He sat down, put his hand over mine and said I had been blowing him kisses all around the world. I shared my breakfast with him. I wanted to ask him so many questions but was unable to (19). 

I was then discharged. I had not been assessed upon admission but I since received discharge papers that report I claimed to be the virgin Mary (20). They diagnosed me with bipolar! (21) I was not assessed! As I was being discharged a nurse gave me an injection in the buttock. She said it was vitamin B (22). My doctor does not believe I have bipolar and she is aware of mind control projects but said its too difficult to prove (23). Several weeks later I discovered the staff at the hospital that dealt with me and the ambulance officers are no longer employed (24). 

I have conducted so much research since my experience in November. I am sure it was mind control. What are those patches they stuck on my forearms? I was going to message you months ago about my experience but felt you would think I was insane. It is constantly on my mind and I'm terrified of what could happen. Surely I'm not the only one they have done this to.  
Thank you, Tania Hossack, 

After responding to Tania’s above message, I received this follow-up e-mail from her the next day (October 9, 2013).

Hi Jeff

Thank you for your reply.

Please feel free to publish my story on your site. You may use my first name and location.

I believe the patches that were put on my forearms are some sort of very advanced medical device that were used to put me to sleep and give me the birthing sensation (25). I feel the patches may have even been used to download my memories as well, as when I was waking up I could see bits and pieces of my life (26). Perhaps they used my memory to ‘create’ my friends father who had passed away many years prior (27). I didn’t know my friends father very well but I certainly knew what he looked like. He had been a freemason (28).

I never knew there was a conspiracy surrounding freemasonary let alone mind control. I guess like the majority of people, you only find out after it happens to you (29).


Jeff’s Footnotes

1. The so-called “11:11 phenomenon” is a combination false-flag / disinformation operation which relies on neurotechnology previously implanted in the brain of the subject. It is so widespread that numerous books have been written and countless websites dedicated to the “phenomenon.” See:

2. The experience of “telepathy” is a signature symptom of MKULTRA neurotechnology subjects.  See:

3. The experience of unusually frequent coincidences is a sign of MKULTRA targeting. See:

4. The experience of feeling “chosen” and/or on a “mission” is another signature sign indicating one is an MKULTRA subject. This experience is widely reported, particularly by subjects in the “alien abduction” themed programs.  See:

new-age-magazine5. MKULTRA neurotechnology enables the operator to send video directly to the mind of the target, bypassing the physical eyes and ears. The mature technology which is in use against mind control subjects is classified; however, primitive versions of the technology are now being discussed in the open scientific literature. See:

6. Planetary alignments and astrology are a common disinformation theme and are often used to divert the attention of MKULTRA victims to “new age” beliefs. See:

7. Giza pyramids are a signature occult/masonic symbol. The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry uses an ancient Egyptian religious theme for its rituals.  The Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is also directly involved in MKULTRA psychiatric operations, according to the research of the late Jim Keith, who appears to have been murdered by medical personnel in a Reno, NV hospital.  See:

8. See Note 6.

9. Patches on forearms probably indicate that Tania was being drugged at this point, particularly in light of the fact that she found herself unable to speak.

10. False statement by ambulance attendant in this context demonstrates complicity.

11. Medical personnel’s question about uterus unexplained but relates to Tanya’s experience of giving birth later in the story. Medical personnel walking away without allowing Tania opportunity to answer question is anomalous. It is unclear what was going on here and this may further evidence that Tania was drugged by this point in the encounter.

12. Crystals feature prominently in “new age” disinformation directed at MKULTRA subjects.  See:

missing-time13. Waking up suddenly when the last recollection is of having been wide awake indicates Tanya was medically rendered unconscious. This is reported with great frequency by MKULTRA subjects both in conventional settings and in “alien/UFO” themed experiences.  In 1981, a book presenting purported “research” on the latter subject was titled Missing Time, alluding to the nearly universal (no pun intended) nature of this experience among mind control subjects.

14. See Note 5.

15. See Note 2.

16. Manipulation of reproductive functions of MKULTRA subjects is commonly reported. See:

    Further, the experience of A) giving birth, and B) having this experience while not necessarily having been previously aware of a pregnancy, are widely reported by MKULTRA subjects in the “UFO/alien” themed programs. See:

17. Another blackout (see Note 13). Another telepathic experience (see Note 2).

18. Another blackout (see Note 13).

19. The experience of meeting a deceased person personally known to the subject has been previously reported by MKULTRA subjects enrolled in “UFO/alien” themed programs.    Tania’s inability to respond indicates she was under external control. See:

20. Discharge papers inconsistent with Tania’s recollections indicates concealment.

21. In order to conceal the existence and deployment of classified mind control neurotechnology, complaints about telepathic experiences have been pre-emptively defined as “first-rank” symptoms of schizophrenia.  Diagnosis of mind control subjects with schizophrenia, bi-polar or other psychotic disorders as a cover story is the standard modus operandi of these operations.  See:

22. Unverifiable injections are commonly reported by subjects of non-consensual human “experimentation.” See:

23. Tania’s doctor is probably correct, in this author’s opinion.

24. Disappearance of hospital and ambulance staff shortly after Tania’s experience strongly evidences an MKULTRA operation.

25. I disagree. I believe these were two distinct aspects of Tania’s experience. Compare with my Note 9 and Note 16.

26. I disagree. Compare with my Note 9 and Note 5.

27. This is entirely possible. MKULTRA “synthetic telepathy” neurotechnology makes your thoughts and memories available to the remote operator. In this case, however, it is unlikely that it would have been necessary to rely on Tania’s memory to “reconstruct” an image or experience of an individual, when actual photos or videos were available. Tania’s experience of meeting her friend’s deceased father may have been an artificially-induced memory / dream. See Note 5 and Note 19. It is also possible that she was in fact caused to meet someone who appeared to be the deceased.

28. In the context of an MKULTRA abduction, the deceased father’s masonic affiliation is a red-flag and highly relevant. See Note 7.

29. Most people don’t know, but (more importantly) they don’t WANT to know. This stuff is too horrible for most people to want to deal with. They just hope that if they ignore it, they will somehow escape being affected. Unfortunately, they are not only wrong, but in many cases they and their loved ones are ALREADY affected without being aware of it. JP

February 2014 Letter from Tania to Psychiatrist

The following is a letter that Tania wrote to a psychiatrist to whom she had been involuntarily been referred (under her government’s Mental Health Act) by the hospital where she was admitted. In it, she elaborates on the story told in the above e-mail. The experiences she recounts occurred on the Sunshine Coast of Queensland.  Tania advises she wants her story made known because there may be others having similar experiences, and warns that “police as well as ambulance officers are […] involved.”

Minor formatting and spelling/grammar check updates were made, which Tania approved before publication. Names of medical staff have been removed at Tania’s request.  Near the end of the letter, Tania cites the work of Dr. Rauni Kilde, a Finnish doctor who speaks publicly about mind control, in order to lend suport to her case. I believe that Kilde is not a reliable source and promotes disinformation (see MC301).

10 February 2014

Dear Dr <Name removed>:

I write the below to you regarding my experiences since my hospitalizations from 28 November 2012 to January 2014, and hope that you will be able to take me seriously.

I have also attached documentation “Microchip Mind Control, Implants & Cybernetics” which I feel could support what has happened to me since 28 Nov 2012.

Several days prior to 28 November I had visions (dreams) in which soon after I was shown pictures of what I had seen in my visions. At this time I was also having telepathy with unknown sources but I had a sense it was with the spirit world. I had had telepathy around Easter of 2011 including seeing the clock at 11:11 twice a day for days on end and many other coincidences. At that time I researched 11:11 and felt comforted by what I read. The telepathy and coincidences stopped as soon as I had read information about seeing 11:11. I felt blessed and left it at that even though I ended up in Nambour Hospital for one night.

In November 2012 the visions I had were of a lunar eclipse, three stars over the Giza pyramids and the date 21 December 2012. I just thought they were odd dreams. Then the telepathy started to increase. I was ‘told’ to look at my Facebook account. I then saw these visions in pictures that had been sent to me on Facebook. I had no idea about the Mayan Calendar, nor was I aware at the time that other ancient civilizations had the same prophecies as the Mayans.

An immediate sense of panic hit me and there was an urgent sense of a timeframe allocated to me to do something that will help save the world. I kept hearing via telepathy, “Don’t panic, pay attention to your breathing, drink some water and have some food”.

I knew I had to research the meaning of the visions. The sense of urgency was so overwhelming but somehow I managed to breath, drink and eat and keep myself together mentally.

I researched lunar eclipses and didn’t find much that seemed to make sense in what I was experiencing. But when I read up on the date 21 December 2012, and 3 stars over Giza pyramids. I thought I would fall in a heap and die. I yelled out to God, “What can I do? Why me? How the heck can I save the world?” I started pinching myself and really hard too as I was hoping it was all just a dream.

I ended up in a trance like state early hours on 28 November. I got various items from my home including an Egyptian cat statue and the ashes of my dog called Zeus (he was called Zeus by his previous owner). I placed all the items outside on the ground. The last item I placed down was a funeral card of a very old friend who had passed away. I put the poppy I received at his funeral over the funeral card.

I then prayed out loud to end the wars, send all troops home and stop poverty. I then felt a sense of relief. I believed I had ‘done my bit’ to help save the world. I yelled out over and over “Woohoo!! We did it”. I had never felt so wonderful in my life.

At that moment a friend dropped in to see me. I was so excited about all that happened and started telling her. Well she called me an ambulance!

I was happy to go off in the ambulance. I had no idea where I was being taken but I felt I wasn’t being taken to hospital. I felt back to normal, the excitement had worn off.

The ambulance officer in the back of the ambulance with me took a sample of blood and then stuck patches on my shoulders. They were medical looking patches but had metal pieces sticking upwards from the center about 2 inches in height with rounded ends. He would not tell me what they were for. He then called out to the driver that my blood pressure was perfect but he had not used a blood pressure device to check it though. He told me he was one of a handful of people that had been assigned to look after me and that my stay in hospital would be short. I felt reassured.

At the hospital I was wide awake and wondering what was going on. A lady came over to me and said they had to move me quickly. I assumed she was a nurse. I remember her pushing the bed I was on and cannot recall feeling sleepy but woke up 10 to 12 hours later. I was not aware of the missing time until several days later.

I remember waking up and not being able to breathe and this repeated numerous times. When I finally woke up I was wondering what year it was and who I was. I felt as though I had been taken back in time and had been playing the part of many people. I also sensed that my memories had been downloaded.

I was in a large room on my own. A male person came in and asked me if I still had a uterus. He walked away before I could answer him. A lady then came in and I asked her what was going on. She said I had a lot of chemicals in my system and handed me a crystal and she walked away. Another male person came into the room. He stood at a nurse’s station in front of a computer and smiled at me. The telepathy happened again, but this time I knew it was coming from this male person. He said I would be okay and that they had no choice but to do this in a hospital as it was the safest place. Two men in blue suits then stood on either side of the doorway to the room. One of them kept turning around at me smiling. I also had some telepathy with him. He was basically reassuring me I would be okay. He looked Egyptian and I felt I had known him. When I asked him if I knew him he said I knew all of them but could not remember.

The male person at the nurse’s station then picked up a phone and was describing me to someone. He was saying they may have to relocate me. He kept smiling at me and reassuring me. He was using the computer during the procedures I mention below.

The lady who had given me the crystal came in and checked the patches on my shoulders and pulled the blanket back over my shoulders and walked away.

I then felt some movement in my reproductive area which made me sit up. I was told to lay back down and keep quiet. I then felt a baby moving from my uterus down and out of me. I felt the pressure and movement of this but it was not at all painful and there was no baby visible. I had not been pregnant. I was told to keep quite again. I wanted to yell out what the heck was going on but was unable to. I was a bit frightened by this experience but felt okay with it as well. They keep reassuring me and then the male person on the phone was telling the other person there was a complication and I had to be moved urgently. I then felt a surge of electricity through my body which seem to give me strength. My back then began to arch by itself and I laid back down. The male person at the nurse’s station then said to the person on the other end of the phone that there were three sections of bowel in the way and to wait a moment. A couple of minutes later I felt another baby coming out, head first like the first one. Then another surge of electricity and my back arching itself.

The male person removed a device from the computer and walked away.

The lady came back in and took the patches off my shoulders and walked away. A male nurse called <Name removed at Tania’s request>(UK accent) approached me and handed me pen and paper and told me to write down four names. I did and he walked away with it.

A different lady then approached me and told me to follow her. I was shown into a small room and she walked to a desk off from the room. She made a telephone call and said she had a female patient that had two small children she wanted to discharge her and that she had no money and that she would give her some money.

The lady then came back to the room and I was taken to a higher level of the hospital. The two men in blue suits were on either side of me. They were not wearing the usual security officers blue uniforms.

I wanted to scream out “What happened to me? What was that all about?” I was in shock and scared at what was going to happen next.

<The male nurse> then met us in another section of the hospital. I was not aware this was a psychiatric ward. Suddenly I was overwhelmed by fear and thought I was going to pass out. Then men in blue suits were saying (telepathy) “Please don’t be scared, it’s all okay”. I could even feel their compassion and love, however that just seem to complicate my fear further.

<The male nurse> showed me to a room. I didn’t want to go in there, I ran down a hallway and hid in a rest room with my back against the door. I eventually came out and was taken to the room by <the male nurse>. I slammed the door shut and ran to a window and punched it but it wouldn’t break. I wanted to jump head first onto the ground below but the glass was too thick to break. The only other time I felt suicidal was when I was on Cymbalta sometime after I was assaulted at work. I developed PTSD as a result of the assault and the nightmares were bad enough but Cymbalta made them much worse and I had many suicidal thoughts and later discovered that Cymbalta has caused many people to commit suicide. My concern is that whatever experiments they are conducting on people in this hospital is a far greater crime.

I woke the following morning (29th Nov 2012) feeling very blessed. I went out into a main area and <the male nurse> told me I had slept very well. He told me I could go across the road and get the best coffee I had ever had. I did that and got some yoghurt too and returned.

I went out on a balcony to have my coffee and yogurt. I had just sat down when a friend’s father that had passed away about 17 years prior came out onto the balcony. He recognised me straight away. I was in absolute awe. It was amazing to see him. I was speechless but managed to tell him it was great to see him. He sat down and put his hand over mine and said that I had been blowing him kisses all around the world. Right at that moment I wondered if reincarnation was real. I hadn’t known him very well but certainly knew what he looked like. He had been a Freemason. I wanted to ask him so many questions but didn’t know where to begin. I went inside and got him a spoon and cup and shared my yoghurt with him. He then said, “I know what they said about you and I also know that was not you”. I don’t know why but somehow that made sense to me. As soon as he said that I felt myself somewhere way back in time being persecuted for something I had not done. I was trying to remember who I was back then but he put his arm around me and said it was all okay. He then said he had to lay down but I would see him again soon.

I then had a conversation with a male person that appeared to be a patient who had come out onto the balcony. He was telling me about some odd things that had happened to him which he believed were from spirit world. For some reason I asked him if he felt Steve Irwin was contacting him. He freaked out a tad when I asked that and tears welled in his eyes. He said he had been mates with Steve since school. My family has known the Irwins most of their lives, especially an older cousin of mine who knows Bob (Steve’s father) very well.

I went back inside and read a book in bed for a while and can’t remember feeling tired but I woke the following morning and was discharged. I must have slept for a very long time as I hadn’t had lunch or dinner. A nurse came and said I needed a vitamin B injection. I didn’t question it.

I got home and then started to research and I’ve been researching ever since. I was hoping my experience was part of our Creators plan but if that was the case I’m sure they would have told me about it. I’m aware a line of females in my family have had psychic abilities but I don’t think that subject is recognised in psychiatry. I’ve had a few unexplained things occur to me but never pursued it as I didn’t understand it.

While researching I discovered Dr Rauni Kilde’s works on YouTube. Dr Kilde, MD Former Chief Medical Officer, Lapland, Finland. Please refer to the attached documentation “Microchip Mind Control, Implants and Cybernertics”. Dr Rauni Kilde’s YouTube documentaries advise that single females are often targeted. I’m a single female and I’m also aware of other single females in hospital having similar experiments conducted on them.

I went back to researching lunar eclipses and discovered that on 28th November 2012 there was a lunar eclipse with the moon being in Gemini (twin birthing experience connection?). Recently I discovered that date was the 333rd day of the year with 33 days remaining. 33 is significant to Freemasonry. My friend’s father had been a Freemason. There’s links to Freemasonry and the pyramids. I saw my friend’s father again in January 2013 when I was with my brother shopping. My brother saw him too but he had not known my friend’s father. I hugged and kissed him. He asked me if I was still a nurse at the hospital. That’s confusing… But then again the whole darn thing is confusing.

I’ve researched mind control, in particular neuro tech mind control. I hate to admit it but I am more inclined to believe this experience of mine was mind control. When I discussed it with my Dr (<Name removed>, Noosaville), she advised me she was aware of mind control programs in the past and wanted to help me make a complaint. I’m reluctant to make a complaint as I know it will fall on ‘deaf ears’ as basically who is going to believe a person with a known psychological injury?

I ended up in hospital again in January 2013, as after my admission in November 2012 I had Community Mental Health conducting home visits. On one occasion two of them (both males) came to my door. I had been resting in bed reading a book. I heard one of them call out “It’s Steve”. I know a couple of Steve’s so I was going to unlock the door and let Steve in and quickly run back to my room and put something more decent on. I was only in a short white night shirt. When I saw two men at my door I felt very intimidated. I asked them to come back in an hour or so. They said if I didn’t let them in now they would get the police. I welcomed them to get the police. I retreated back to my bedroom and began packing a bag thinking I would have to run away as there was no way I was going back to hospital and have further experiments carried out on me.

The Mental Health workers returned with the Police and I am told I have to go to hospital. I was very frustrated and scared. I was (once again) doped up on medications that do not suit me and diagnosed incorrectly.

For some years I had discovered through a family member that a now newly elected Member of Parliament has associations with the Russian Mafia. I know a bit about the Mafia in Australia. My father during his work had involvement with the Italian Mafia in Victoria in the 1970’s. But when you mention that to people in the health system, they think you’re delusional. I don’t associate with members of the Mafia, I just know the history and who controls the largest corporations in Australia and some other countries.

My move into my new property could not go ahead (settlement proceeded whilst I was in hospital). I lost my chances of employment in the new area I was moving to. I also lost my job with Sunshine Coast Council. I had a current medical certificate and my employer called Mental Health saying I was “off with the fairies” (reaction to medication). While I was in hospital they terminated my employment. I had been employed by Council since 2001.

Dr <Name removed (Dr. #1)> refused to contact Dr <Name removed (Dr. #2)> about my condition. <Dr. #1> did not listen to what I wanted to say. No one has listened so that is why I decided to let my sense of humor (which keeps me sane) ‘kick in’ when I was again admitted to hospital in January 2014. I recall telling a hospital staff member that I had flown off my unicorn, etc.

All I had done was toot my car horn and yell out to God “Why can’t we have healthy cigarettes”. The police and ambulance turned up at the same time. My furniture was NOT upside down and nor where my drawers or cupboards open. You can confirm this by contacting <the vet>. The only thing that may have appeared to be out of place was a spilt kitty litter tray and a broken cup as a result of my cat knocking it off the bench.

The ambulance officers that were in attendance advised me they were the same from my experience on 28/11/12. Yet again I was put to sleep, this time in the back of the ambulance and only woke up on arrival at the hospital. However, this time they had not placed medical patches on me to put me to sleep. I tried to go AWOL 6 times? Who wouldn’t after having such horrible experiments conducted on them previously?

During my recent stay in Nambour Hospital I was advised several times by nursing staff that they had organised my house keys to be transported to my vet and/or neighbour. This was NOT the case.

On about 21 January I was taken to my house by two male persons from Community Mental Health Services. Staff at the hospital had given me my house keys from behind the counter. I then knew that they had not given my keys to the vet and/or neighbour. Further, my neighbours had only moved in prior to Christmas and I had not met them yet.

Once I arrived at home I noted my dog and one of my cats were missing. My Galahs water bowls were filthy and he hadn’t any food left. My 17 year old cat was scared and had lost a lot of weight.

Once I was transported to Buderim Hospital I contacted my Vet. I was advised that on the 15th January they received a call from someone stating I was in hospital. They accessed my house with the Police and a Locksmith and organised my dog to go into boarding and my 13 year old cat who is on medication to be looked after at the vets. They assumed my brother would be looking after my Galah and other cat as he had done so when I was in hospital in January 2013. My brother is currently working overseas and was not aware I was in hospital.

My animals suffered greatly and this caused me further stress while in hospital. My 17 year old cat was skin and bones and very weak. I have been able to save her. If my pets had perished as a result of the incompetence of hospital staff I would have contacted the media before now.

I trust I don’t suffer any consequences forwarding you this information. I have also contacted a family friend and provided a copy of this to him, as if in the event I am ‘carted off’ to hospital again this will all come out in mainstream media.

Please contact me by mail acknowledging receipt of this and reassuring me that If I attend the scheduled appointment with you in your officer on 18th February 2014, that I will not be taken to hospital. Please note the letter by <Dr. #2> which I gave copy to Lorraine to forward onto you. I have difficulty driving far from home and I do not wish to have increased anxiety. If I am unable to make the appointment, I will call your office to reschedule. Lorraine is welcome to visit anytime.

Kind regards,

Tania Hossack


#Islamobigots : mind persuasion and the enemy within

“Let us suppose that in a certain city there
lives a group of a given foreign extraction. They are loyal
Americans but still have cultural and sentimental ties to the
old country. A neighborhood doctor, working secretly for a
foreign power, hypnotizes those of his patients who have
ties favorable to his plans. Having done this he would, of
course, remove from them all knowledge of their ever having
been hypnotized.
“Next comes a one-month period of indoctrination under
hypnosis. By various means, including the offer of substantial
rewards and educational processes designed to
strengthen their ancestral loyalties, their cooperation is obtained.”

George Estabrooks, 1940.

Amanda Bynes tweets about father’s abuse and microchip in her brain..Now under involuntary psychiatric hold

The silicon chip inside her head is set to overload

Follow The Money



Amanda Bynes posted a series of tweets about her father sexually abusing her and a microchip inside her brain. She was then taken to a hospital in Los Angeles by Sam Lutfi – Britney Spears’ ex-handler who was around her when she had her infamous meltdown.

In my previous articles about Amanda Bynes, I described how she is a clear product of mind control. The title of these articles pretty much sum her road to mind control hell : “Amanda Bynes: Another Product of Entertainment Industry Mind Control?”, “Amanda Bynes Detained in Involontary Psychiatric Hold”, and “Amanda Bynes Following in the Footsteps of Britney Spears, Placed Under Conservatorship”.

In the past days, Bynes has been displaying erratic behavior that is typical of a MKULTRA meltdown.


On October 10th, Bynes apparently had a meltdown – or a rare moment of clarity – as she posted “the truth”…

1 in 3 American individuals may carry an RFID chip!

Whistleblower told us all about this long ago… No one believed him because the scale of what he was talking about sounded like absurd science fiction…

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) Chips have been used extensively in wildlife ecology and conservation to identify and track individual specimens in a population. It has been unknown, however, how often RFID chips have been implanted in human populations for the tracking and identification of individuals. This study analyzed the prevalence of RFID Chips in 3 geographically discrete populations and found that, on average, 1 in 3 individuals carried an RFID Chip. Interestingly, there was a strong correlation with RFID Chip presence and previous dental work.

Population Midwest (MW) contained 958 individuals from Illinois, Iowa, and Wisconsin. Population Northeast (NE) contained 987 individuals from Maine, Rhode Island, and New Jersey. Population South West (SW) contained 1,010 individuals from Arizona and Nevada. Volunteers were recruited using standard methods and compensated in a manner consistent with industry standards. All test subjects were treated in compliance with institutional codes of ethics and standards…
