I J’ve just been reading about the refutation of the materialists’ theory that mind is a function of the brain. While these writers search for the facts to refute this theory, they all seem to overlook two things. 1. Memory is a function of all our cells. I believe that Biocentrism has the right idea. All the cells in the body are affected by what happens to the body that forms memories, on a holographic basis. Therefore if you lose a part of your body you don’t lose any memories because the whole of memory is available in each cell.
2. In the case of transplants of major organs, there is in some cases a transfer of some aspects of the donor’s personality to the recipient. This has been investigated in a few cases with the recipient having no knowledge of the donor, yet he suddenly takes up bike riding for no apparent reason except that it is subsequently found to have been a passion of the donor. The reason for the association of the parts of the brain with the functions is that like a TV receiver, certain parts translate certain identifiable things and the service technician can identify the faulty parts from the lack or modification of the functions. That does not mean that the signal has been modified, just that the part of the translation is malfunctioning.
There is ample confirmation of this transfer. I believe that the reason it is not noted more often is that the a strength of the transfer depends on the size of the transplant.
The Planarian worm also regenerates new body parts. If you cut it into three, head, body, and tail, it will regenerate a full worm from each part and each new worm will have the same memories as the original!.
The most shocking spurious Conspiracy Theory Video ever is this video that gets you to think about things you might not have thought about otherwise! Things like what? See it for yourself, and maybe you too will begin to see things the way they really are. There has never been a video like it this before. The World you thought you knew is about to become the World you thought you knew! Your life will forever change.
I just finished Greg's book "Don't Worry There Probably Is...." I didn't join in the furore with the "Skeptics" and others as I now regard "Skeptics" as a class of humanity who are lower than low. They try to prevent others from reading what they want and seem to have no ethics whatsoever, using anything that comes to hand to bludgeon the reader into ignoreing the opinions of others.
I no longer live in the US, but remember the unbelievable propaganda they serve up in the media and TV. I recently renewed my acquaintance with a retired teacher from the US, and just in passing referred to 9/11 as an inside job. He was very impolite and accused me of being an "Islamist!" Since he has been here (in Sicily) for a few months, I have not dared to reopen the discussion. Who am I to disillusion him? I excused it by reasoning that being a teacher of young people in the USA these days means that you have to toe the party line to retain your job till retirement, which he has now safely attained. I think the attitude of the locals here, the many expats that we have these days, will seep through his automatic defences.
I didn't start this entry to discuss that, it just came up! What I wanted to discuss was my view on Greg's book. I found it enlightening as it gathers together all the evidence in one place, where it is easily readable. It is a very convincing read, even allowing for the fact that I am a very convinceable submissive person. I still look for fact, and distrust statistics when they are a million to one.
I have been living with my partner for over twelve years now and find that we have developed a form of communication which is telepathic in that we both seem to think of the same thing at the same time. It happens with trivial things and with big things where we might be at odds considering our totally unrelated backgrounds. This all contributes to my theories on the "field" which I envisage as something like gravity which has been observed to be faster than light judging by the movement of the sun.
Excellent book that deftly unravels the most tangled web of our time. Bo
Cognitive Infiltration: An Obama Appointee's Plan to Undermine the 9/11 Conspiracy Theory
"Griffin's meritorious effort to raise public awareness and understanding
Former Chicago and Harvard law professor Cass Sunstein, who in 2009 was appointed by President Barack Obama to direct an important executive branch office, had in 2008 co-authored an article containing a plan for the government to prevent the spread of anti-government "conspiracy theories." Arguing that such theories are believed only by groups suffering from "informational isolation," he advocated the use of anonymous government agents to engage in "cognitive infiltration" of these groups in order to introduce "cognitive diversity," with the aim of breaking them up.
Noting that Sunstein's proposal has evoked condemnations from across the political spectrum--not least because it, being similar to the FBI's COINTELPRO of the 1960s, would be illegal--David Ray Griffin focuses on the fact that Sunstein's primary target is the conspiracy theory advocated by the 9/11 Truth Movement. Examining Sunstein's charge that this theory is both "harmful" and "demonstrably false," Griffin uses both satire and overwhelming evidence to show that this twofold charge applies instead to what Sunstein calls "the true conspiracy theory" about 9/11-namely, the "theory that Al-Qaeda was responsible for 9/11."
"In the United States today, the phrase `conspiracy theory' functions as a sort of giant cudgel, used to scare us out of talking openly about a broad (and ever-growing) range of scandals that the powerful cannot afford to let the people comprehend. In this new book, David Ray Griffin takes devastating aim at that repressive tactic, exposing it for what it really is. All those who cherish democracy, and intellectual freedom, owe it to themselves to read this brave analysis---and owe its author their sincerest thanks." --- Mark Crispin Miller, Professor of Culture and Communication, New York University.

Deconstruction of a Fascist Proposal to Destroy the 9/11 Truth Movement
By Dennis P. McMahon on November 29, 2010Format: Paperback Amazon Verified Purchase David Ray Griffin's "Cognitive Infiltration" is a devastating deconstruction of Cass R. Sunstein's shocking and dangerous proposal to have the U.S. government illegally infiltrate and destroy the 9/11 Truth Movement. Sunstein--a Harvard Law Graduate, President Obama's choice to head the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, and once described by Elena Kagan (now a Supreme Court Justice) as "the preeminent scholar of our time"--is unmasked by Griffin and shown to be a fascist automaton, eager to openly do the bidding of the enforcers of the official 9/11 myth that is used to justify the government's perpetual wars in the Middle East, and the ongoing suppression of civil liberties at home. Especially horrifying is that Sunstein is now in a position to help implement the very unconstitutional policies he so eagerly espoused. "Cognitive Infiltration" provides an intelligent and measured response to the twisted madness of Sunstein, who as a result of offering his frightening proposal, has revealed himself to be unworthy of holding public office.
In an analysis of the ten theses that form the basis of the Obama appointee's proposal to eradicate 9/11 Truth, Griffin distinguishes between two levels of meaning in Sunstein's essay: the exoteric (surface) and the esoteric (hidden). The esoteric interpretations portray Sunstein in such a favorable light that readers may wonder if Griffin is being serious in his praise or not. The answer is provided in the Conclusion of "Cognitive Infiltration."
Early on in "Cognitive Infiltration," to counter Sunstein's thesis that conspiracy theories in the U.S. are usually both unjustified and false, Griffin provides excellent summaries of no less than seventeen so-called "conspiracy theories" involving the U.S. government that in time proved to be true, including: numerous U.S. overthrows of legitimate governments around the world (Iran, Guatemala, Indonesia, Chile, Panama, Haiti, etc.); the manufactured Gulf of Tonkin incident (which Lyndon Johnson used as a pretext for escalating the Vietnam War); the FBI's illegal counter-intelligence program (COINTELPRO) which targeted Martin Luther King and the anti-Vietnam War Movement (and which seems to have served as a model for Sunstein's plan to target the 9/11 Truth Movement); Operation Mockingbird, involving CIA infiltration and (ongoing) control of the U.S. "free press;" and the "Deadly Lie at Ground Zero (2001)" initiated by the Bush-Cheney White House which ordered the EPA to tell the public that the air around NYC's World Trade Center following the 9/11 attacks was safe to breathe, even though test results indicated that the air was highly toxic. Trusting their government, 40,000 rescue and clean-up workers dutifully returned to work, unaware of the lies and the danger. As Griffin documents, 60-70% of these Ground Zero workers have come down with various debilitating illnesses, including cancer, and many have already died.
While analyzing Sunstein's primary claim--that those who hold to any unofficial 9/11 conspiracy theory do so because they suffer from `informational isolation' and a `crippled epistemology'--Griffin exposes the absurdity of Sunstein's theory by focusing on the intellectual leadership of the 9/11 Truth Movement, and their impressive credentials. In so doing, Griffin effectively demonstrates that it is Sunstein who is informationally isolated and possessed by a crippled epistemology, as a result of not having done his 9/11 homework.
Similarly, Griffin shows that Sunstein's charge that the 9/11 Truth Movement's evidence is weak or nonexistent would be more appropriately leveled at proponents of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory. In refuting this Sunstein allegation, Griffin includes a masterful overview of the existing evidence which proves, beyond any reasonable doubt, that the government has lied about what really happened on 9/11.
In a draft of his essay published on the internet, Sunstein, an old friend of Obama, let slip that the government enlisted the editors of Popular Mechanics to serve as the government's `independent experts' on 9/11, Griffin reports. Thus, Sunstein's "proposal" may have sprung from an inner-circle knowledge that the 9/11 Truth Movement is already being cognitively infiltrated (which would come as no surprise to many 9/11 Truthers who suspect that there already are trolls, provocateurs, and "limited hangouts" on the internet). In this light, Sunstein's essay can be seen more as a clandestine attempt to legitimize the government's cognitive infiltration that is already taking place.
Whatever the motivations for Sunstein's fascist proposal, the number of 9/11 Truth converts continues to grow, Griffin notes. If the call for illegal infiltration of the 9/11 Truth Movement is the best plan that can be devised by this "pre-eminent legal scholar," Griffin asks, tongue in cheek, might it not be time for the defenders of the official 9/11 conspiracy theory "to throw in the towel?" Synchronistically, just prior to this writing, two mainstream media personalities--Geraldo Rivera and Judge Andrew Napolitano, both on Fox no less--have begun challenging the government's official conspiracy theory, while admitting that the 9/11 Truth Movement could be right in saying that 9/11 was an inside job.
Time will tell how much 9/11 Truth will be allowed to enter the mainstream, and where exactly that will lead. Whatever the extent and direction, Sunstein will have unwittingly contributed to the effort by writing an essay that "has provided such an excellent foil for [Griffin's] laying out of the current nature of the 9/11 Truth Movement, along with the extent and quality of its evidence," as the literary leader of the 9/11 Truth Movement acknowledges at the end of "Cognitive Infiltration," a truly brilliant work

Before The Fall of the Berlin Wall the East Germans were using Advanced Subluminal Advertising TechniquesPosted by Alienated at 05:35, 24 Dec 2013
This recently discovered video provides us with a rare glimpse into the advanced subluminal advertising techniques used by the DDR ( GDR ). At first it seems like any other Warsaw Pact TV advert from the mid-80s, but when one analyses it more carefully one begins to see how NLP, and Super-Luminal Mind-control techniques were used with great effect. Before this vintage TV ad was discovered it was always assumed that the Socialist Block were way behind the West in terms of Mass Mind Control. But now we have proof that the very opposite is true. And also; for the very first time we get to see who was the General Director of Stasi Style. Prior to this; it was always assumed that the real Director was not a Peter Sellers look-alike, but rather a Cheech Marin look-alike. The TV ad was among thousands of reels of film found in the secret Film Archives of the Stasi.
Not sure if alien-octopus hybrid or Cthulhu. The owner of my local pharmacy, where I found these, has a thing for the Sci-Fi I guess.
Whatever you celebrate, have a good one :)
Thank you to all who make TDG possible for another great year!
