The unconscious mind responds to openings, opportunities, metaphors, symbols, and contradictions.
NLP boasts it can get get rid of phobias in ten minutes, but that psychiatric pros can't do any of this, see Bandler below (you can watch Tony Robbins for this if you keep your feet wet). But first compare the NLP derived from Erikson to Erikson himself to see what a one note Johnny proof text NLP is.
The unconscious and the manipulation of the Unconscious for good or bad is the biggest subject we contend with in our humanity. That Bandler and Grinder took Erikson's thought and art and boiled it down to something the CIA and presidents could use every day to control minds and turn into mass investment for dollars is another of the contradictions of the unconscious. You might say it is entirely appropriate that the unconscious be mass marketed, but I don't know how a betrayal of truth for profit lives with itself. A touchdown for truth they will claim. It happens in the darker corners of Esalen.
If you take the notion that the unconscious should not be influenced you put all the self help gurus from the tarot to Tony Robbins out of work. The untainted unworked imagination, the unhypnotized mind would out itself in those conditions. What inexactly the unconscious is must then be left to Joyce. The Psycho profession in its hurry to supply therapy because people are afflicted has no time for the pristine rolling waters of the sea. Yea the whales and the sharks must die if Bandler has a Neptune dominant. Neptune dominants, the sea and all that in them is, work out to deception, the major deception of the Neptune War. Sanctification of the unconscious and its cleansing is at odds with its exploitation and manipulation. You will be able to take classes in the cleansing, for there is an instructor. Erikson is important because he founded the cottage industry of NLP and funded the whole CIA nat'l intelligence mind control networks, lacking a good publicist however he profited nothing for providing the means that enslaved the race. Of course if not him who?
The way I came to examine these matters began from a prayer to understand what it means to be human that uttered itself when I asked to be shown. That day, reading Browart, and seeing his affection for NLP, I took a view toward further acquaintance. But NLP was superficial on youtube tapes. The two main practiques, Bandler and Grinder, said they had come to Phoenix in the early days to visit and would drive back to LA puzzling the profoundities they'd been exposed to. In Phoenix! I backtracked then and found they meant their continual visits with Erikson, from which they derived their ideas. Being that Erikson was in the neighborhood, as it turned out, literally across the street in a manner of speaking, which is one way of describing the technique of work in recent years that others have called unconscious, I began to explore Erikson. I took a trip to Phoenix. The day I went to the Erikson Foundation however it was in early stages of demolition. In the parking lot at the back were old fence, beams from the porch, dry wall, brick. The sign was still on the front. Not knowing what I was seeing, unless you take it that a person's real estate speaks symbolically of him as a person, I went to the Erikson Bldg. It was after hours. Signs everywhere proclaimed my picture taken. It was more like a fortress. The next day I went to their Thrift store and to the Erikson Museum, Milton's old home. Phoenix is a little tawdry in May. People with lined faces from alcohol and drug abuse are the only ones left in majority. But I looked in the faces of the staff in their pictures and heard their video tapes and the frightening heart fire of the eyes and continual beaming lips. The classes are not low class though, about 200 a day to learn to manipulate the unconscious. From what I could see of it from these signs on that day the unconscious was in the same disrepair as the Foundation. That next day I went back for pics. but the sign was down by then except the letters left a shadow. The agent said they couldn't sell it so it was being redone for rental. The new bldg had been open less than a year.
Why all this reminded me of a disastrous side trip to Luckenbach once taken from a dream may be only because the night before my return for pics I dreamed I buried my old hash pipe in three pieces while I was in a private high school somewhere. On the way in to class I was late. I drove the pipe stem into the ground with my foot. Hopefully this will not grow a vision of Coleridge. The bowl I stamped down too. The mouthpiece threw. Jerry Jeff Walker, Luckenbach, Willie Nelson, the hash, the lined faces, the cheerful lips. I vomited by the side of the road. The night before that I'd had that dream. That's why we went to Luckenbach at all. The place was filled with guitars, but the vomit was profound.
As said, the day before the Phoenix trip I had asked to know what it meant to be human. Who doesn't like neuro linguistics? Psycho linguistics? Winifred Lehman? I had studied with Edgar Polemé, Cairns, Lehman and Harms who studied with Chomsky. I read Whorf! In surveying the possibilities the founders of NLP had come to Phoenix and marveled how to piece together on their return to LA the unconscious of Dr. Milton. So what is the nature of the human? The unconscious is a mix from this. Training Hege came out that day I prayed, and then, unbeknownst, the next day came The Banquet of God.
Memory, Overwriting, Language
In the same space comes the continuing work of memory that says we remember only the previous memory of the event, not the event itself. So all these echoes and remixes coming down the ages, personal and historical, of what once occurred in childhood and beyond. Write it down was told to them all, and since they did there is a record of a much earlier take than can be had at the present. Hundreds of memories built upon each other, but not only so, for consider that the endorphins released in first trials of cocaine, heroin et al are no longer released in the addict. The attraction then is not the high but the memory of the high encoded in the social situation, the friends, situations, associations that preceded the fix, the event, which thereafter cause it. These palimpsests happen to people when they hear or see a message. It is thought "certain messages" or images cause a change in the brain to accommodate new ideas. The government wants to know who is vulnerable to its new messaging, to overwrite the original message with their own.
Overwriting Hard Drive
Ovewriting also concerns programing. The application from programming is not metaphor. At issue in programming is whether overwritten under data can be recovered, or reverse engineered with another kind of overwriting that eliminates the prime entirely, or modifies it to some interest. This bending in word choice, syntax and phonetics in overwriting, subtexting, embedding is exactly what writers do. Call it palimpsest, but DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) more or less invented hypertext and graphic interface. Its solicitations want to hire writers to figure out how “narratives,” oral stories, speeches, propaganda, books, can interdict, supplant and counter with “better” messages ideas Defense deems useless. Guns? Grants are offered toward this end. Too late to sign up Philip K. Dick, but presumably his Ubik is a text they would preempt. Overwriting has to do with human receptivity. It combines the techniques of passive hypnotism of Milton Erickson (link explores The Denver Speech in this way) with aural and visual confusion, a "rectagon" or a picture uniting numerous rectangular principles of photo optic representation, wither fractals, to induce a receptive state (that's why the absolute first principle of covert hypnotism is Rapport!) produce alpha brain waves to open the onlooker for programming to allow the overwrite. Is that Dickean or what? That's why we call it The Severed Head.
When the genome is corrupted language is next, if not first. DARPA uses control minds, manipulates emotions by phone--image, phoneme, syntax and rhetoric, or wants to, aided by the notion that grammar can be built statistically by AI: “computational methods to automatically acquire models of human languages. Examples include large–scale systems for language understanding, information extraction, and machine translation, as well as computational linguistics projects, such as the reconstruction of ancient languages. One of his best–known results was to show that human grammars can be learned by statistical methods.” Dan Klein, Online Artificial Intelligence. The effort at predictability, scientific method if you will, smacks of Faulkner generated on demand, or whoever you like, but not of course those who do not yet exist. How do we know the purpose of science is not to prevent any new existence in the interest of control of the experiment and predictability? Cannot prove a negative.
"(PhysOrg.com) -- Sometimes you just don’t know whether to laugh, cry or be alarmed when hearing about what the boys in secretive back rooms are doing in the name of anti-terrorism, or homeland security, or whatever else they wish to call it. This time it seems, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the semi-secret agency charged with coming up with new and cool ways to protect the citizens of the United States from foreign bad guys, wants to hire someone to figure out how vulnerable some people are to “narratives” (oral stories, speeches, propaganda, books, etc. that cause people to think) and then, supplant such messages with “better” messages to head off the path that for such people might lead them to becoming a terrorist.
Called the “Narrative Networks” project, DARPA has released a solicitation for research proposals by those that have both the know-how and the technology to implement such a program, which is divided into two parts. The first part would involve analyzing what happens to people when they hear or see a message. It’s thought that certain messages or images actually cause a change in the brain to accommodate the new ideas.
The second part of the study, quite naturally, would involve developing a means for taking advantage of what is learned in the first part. Or, in other words, to come up with a way to find out who is vulnerable to messaging, and then to blast them with a message that would overwrite any undesirable brain changes that occurred as the result of that person being subjected to “bad” messages, so that they would behave themselves.
At first blush, such a program would appear to be scary as all get out; after all, if our government gets its hands on technology that could reprogram people who have come to feel things the government doesn’t like, it seems like a really good way to control them, including its own population. On second thought though, as reality starts to kick in, it appears that while some research in this area might bear some fruit, it’s highly doubtful that any such program would meet with much success. After all, governments (and other entities) have been trying to figure out how to brainwash people for thousands of years with very little to show for their efforts.
On the other hand, the folks at DARPA seem to think that new advances in technology might have changed the game a little bit. New types of brain scans can, for example, can actually show a brain being changed due to a received message. And new highly sophisticated electronic sensing devices are able to pick up even the slightest nuances in facial expressions. If the two technologies could be brought together, the thinking goes, perhaps people could be scanned without their knowledge and found to be either vulnerable to messaging or already changed in some way by messaging from a suspect source. In such case, they could be targeted for specialized messaging that has been shown through research to be effective in overriding what has occurred in their unknowing noggins.
Each phase is supposed to go for 18 months though there doesn’t appear to be any component of the project that calls for publicly publishing results found or describing product deliveries after completion.
