Regarding Mental Reprogramming
Ways It Is Being Achieved
It is now more important than ever for the faithful
to understand the many ways their minds are being reprogrammed because
your immediate future
depends on the identification and avoidance of
certain reprogramming situations.
Please understand - it is YOUR immediate future -
not OURS. Ours depends precisely on sounding the alerts that God Wills
and providing the remedies and consolation necessary.
In this document we will explain the reprogramming methods used by the
forces of evil in preparation for the manifestation of the False Christ
(1) which will
follow the period of the AntiChrist (2).
Through the Grace of God we came across the transcript of a talk
delivered by Richard Sutphen, a noted Hypnotist and prolific author of
New Age topics, at the World Congress of Professional Hypnotists
Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. The talk centers on the methods used
to mentally reprogram - brainwash - the masses.
A WARNING: This
document may cause spiritual and/or psychological
discomfort to some as the reader understands the extent to which the
minds of the masses are being manipulated. Proceed only if your Faith
is well grounded on solid rock and not on sand. [Matthew

Mr. Richard Sutphen stated:
I've been interviewed about the subject on
many local and regional radio and TV talk shows, large-scale mass
communication appears to be blocked, since it could result in suspicion
or investigation of the very media presenting it or the sponsors that
support the media. Some government agencies do not want this
information generally known. Nor do the Born-Again Christian movement,
cults, and many human-potential trainings.
From this point on, he zeroed in on Christians and Conversions while
revealing priceless information on mind manipulation for a variety of
agendas. Mr. Sutphen continues...
I will relate only exposes the surface of
the problem. I don't know
how the misuse of these techniques can be
stopped. I don't think it is possible to legislate against that
often cannot be detected; and if those who legislate are using these
techniques, there is little hope of affecting laws to govern usage. I
do know that the first step to initiate change is to generate interest.
In this case, that will probably only result from an underground effort.
about this subject, I am
talking about my
own business. I know it, and I know how effective it can be. I produce
hypnosis and subliminal tapes and, in some of my seminars, I use
conversion tactics to
assist participants to become independent and
self-sufficient. But, anytime I use these techniques, I point out that
I am using them, and those attending have a choice to participate or
not. They also know what the desired result of participation will be.
Mr. Sutphen's Presentation
[highlights by The M+G+R
As he lays down the framework of his presentation, he uses the typical
religious cult brainwash techniques that we have spoken about so much.
to begin, I want to state the most basic of all
facts about brainwashing: Those who have been brainwashed will usually
passionately defend their manipulators, claiming they have simply been
"shown the light" . . . or have been transformed in miraculous ways.
Of course, there is much truth in that statement - such manifestation
is typically observed in cults (3),
religious fanaticism (4)
mainstream of established Churches, and psychologically induced
Psychologically induced "Conversions" are hard to identify by most
individuals, and easiest to identify by those who have undergone a true
Spiritual Conversion. The explanation of the differences and means of
detection are beyond the scope of this particular document. We have
brought this difference to light to explain some of Mr. Sutphen's
statements since it seems that he (erroneously) believes that all
Conversions are psychologically induced.
Mr. Sutphen continues...
CONVERSION is a "nice" word for
BRAINWASHING . . . and any study of brainwashing has to begin with a
study of Christian revivalism in eighteenth century America.
Apparently, Jonathan Edwards accidentally discovered the techniques
during a religious crusade in 1735 in Northampton, Massachusetts. By
inducing guilt and acute apprehension and by increasing the tension,
the "sinners" attending his revival meetings would break down and

authority figure creates the brain phase to wipe the brain-slate clean,
his subjects are wide open. New input, in the form of suggestion, can
be substituted for their previous ideas...
Finney was another
who used the same techniques four years later in mass religious
conversions in New York. The
techniques are still being used today by
Christian revivalists, cults, human-potential trainings, some business
rallies, and the United States Armed Services . . . to name just
Let me point
out here that I don't think
revivalist preachers realize or know they are using brainwashing
techniques. Edwards simply stumbled upon a technique that really
As the reader may see, Mr. Sutphen is not attacking religion. He is
exposing induced conversions. An attitude which stems from his lack of
knowledge of true Spiritual
Professional Brainwashing Techniques
The Three Brain Phases
According to Mr. Sutphen's professional expertise...
have to look to Pavlov, the Russian scientist,
for a technical explanation. In the early 1900s, his work with animals
opened the door to further investigations with humans. After the
revolution in Russia, Lenin was quick to see the potential of applying
Pavlov's research to his own ends.
... The way to
achieve conversion are
varied, but the usual first step in religious or political brainwashing
is to work on the emotions of an individual or group until they reach
an abnormal level of anger, fear, excitement, or nervous tension.
progressive result of this mental
to impair judgment and increase suggestibility. The more this condition
can be maintained or intensified, the more it compounds. Once... the
first brain phase is reached, the complete mental takeover becomes
easier. Existing mental
programming can be replaced with new patterns
of thinking and behavior.
weapons to modify
normal brain functions are (severe) fasting (5), radical or high
diets, (severe) physical (6) discomforts,
regulation of breathing,
mantra chanting in meditation (7), the
(orchestrated) disclosure of
awesome mysteries, special lighting and sound effects, programed
response to incense, or intoxicating drugs.
results can be obtained in
psychiatric treatment by electric shock treatments and even by
purposely lowering a person's blood sugar level with insulin injections.
Before I talk
about exactly how some
techniques are applied, I want to point out that hypnosis and
conversion tactics are two
distinctly different things -- and that
conversion techniques are far more powerful. However, the two are often
mixed . . . with powerful results.
Unfortunately, Mr. Sutphen cannot see that there are three distinctly
different "things", with the most powerful being the Spiritual
Conversion. "Most powerful" because when that occurs the
tapped into the Power of God and the conversion is real.
you'd like to see a revivalist preacher at work,
there are probably several in your city. Go to the church or tent early
and sit in the rear, about three-quarters of the way back. Most likely
repetitive music will be played while the people come in for the
service. A repetitive beat, ideally ranging from 45 to 72 beats per
minute (a rhythm close to the beat of the human heart), is very
hypnotic and can generate an eyes-open altered state of consciousness
in a very high percentage of people. And, once you are in an alpha
state, you are at least 25
times as suggestible as you would be in full
Watch the people waiting for the
service to begin.
Many will exhibit external signs of trance -- body relaxation and
slightly dilated eyes. Often, they begin swaying back and forth with
their hands in the air while sitting in their chairs. Next, the
assistant pastor will probably come out. He usually speaks with a
pretty good "voice roll."
"voice roll" is a patterned, paced style used by
hypnotists when inducing a trance. It is also used by many lawyers,
several of whom are highly trained hypnotists, when they desire to
entrench a point firmly in the minds of the jurors. A voice roll can
sound as if the speaker were talking to the beat of a metronome or it
may sound as though he were emphasizing every word in a monotonous,
patterned style. The words will usually be delivered at the rate of 45
to 60 beats per minute, maximizing the hypnotic effect.
(induced) Conversion Techniques
Now the assistant pastor begins the
process. He induces an altered state of consciousness and/or begins to
generate the excitement and the expectations of the audience.... And
the result is the audience's attention span is now totally focused upon
the communication while the environment becomes more exciting or tense.
Right about this time, when an
mass-induced alpha mental state has been achieved, they will usually
pass the collection plate or basket. In the background, a
45-beat-per-minute voice roll from the assistant preacher might exhort,
"Give to God . . . Give to God . . . Give to God . . ." And the
audience does give....
Next, the fire-and-brimstone preacher
will come out.
He induces fear and increases the tension by talking about "the devil,"
"going to hell," or the forthcoming Armageddon....
The techniques and staging will vary
from church to

sophisticated, and professionals are assuring that they become even
more effective.... Powerful sound and the proper use of lighting are of
primary importance in inducing an altered state of consciousness --

participants are fully aware of the process and what they can expect as
a result of their participation.
and human-potential organizations are always
looking for new converts. To attain them, they must also create a
brain-phase. And they often need to do it within a short space of
time -- a weekend, or maybe even a day. The following are the six
techniques used to generate the conversion.
The meeting or training takes place in an area
where participants are cut off from the outside world. This may be any
place: a private home, a remote or rural setting...
[B] In human-potential trainings, the
will give a lengthy talk about the importance of "keeping agreements"
in life... The participants vow to themselves and their trainer that
they will keep their agreements. Anyone who does not will be
intimidated into agreement or forced to leave.
[C] The next step is to agree to
thus assuring a high percentage of conversions for the organizations.
They will USUALLY have to agree not to take drugs, smoke, and sometimes
not to eat . . . The real reason for the agreements is to alter
internal chemistry, which generates anxiety and hopefully causes at
least a slight malfunction of the nervous system, which in turn
increases the conversion potential.
[D] Before the gathering is complete,
will be used to ensure that the new converts go out and find new
participants. They are intimidated into agreeing to do so before they
leave. ... The new converts are zealots. In fact, the inside term for
merchandising the largest and most successful human-potential training
is, "sell it by zealot!"
At least a million people are
graduates and a good
percentage have been left with a mental activation button that assures
their future loyalty and assistance if the guru figure or organization
calls. Think about the potential political (or religious) implications
of hundreds of thousands of zealots programed to campaign for their
wary of an organization of this type that offers
follow-up sessions after the seminar. Follow-up sessions might be
weekly meetings or inexpensive seminars given on a regular basis which
the organization will attempt to talk you into taking -- or any
scheduled event used to maintain control. As the early Christian
revivalists found, long-term control is dependent upon a good follow-up
Let's look at the
second tip-off that
indicates conversion tactics are being used. A schedule is maintained
that causes physical and mental fatigue. This is primarily accomplished
by long hours in which the participants are given no opportunity for
relaxation or reflection.
Techniques used to
increase the tension in
the room or environment.
Uncertainty. I could
spend hours relating
various techniques to increase tension and generate uncertainty.
Basically, the participants are concerned about being "put on the spot"
or encountered by the trainers, guilt feelings are played upon,... So
you can imagine the fear and tension this situation generates within
the participants... They literally go into an alpha state, which
automatically makes them many times as suggestible as they normally
The fifth clue that
conversion tactics are
being used is the introduction of jargon -- new terms that have meaning
only to the "insiders" who participate.
Sixth: The final tip-off is
that there is no humor
in the communications . . . at least until the participants are
converted. Then, merry-making and humor are highly desirable as symbols
of the new joy the participants have supposedly "found."
Mr. Sutphen does not deny that good may result
from participation in such gatherings. It can and does when the
audience is fully aware of the ultimate purpose of such gathering.
it helping an audience of sales personnel to become better
salespersons; helping public speakers becoming better speakers;
assisting battered wives on how to break the battering cycle;
alcoholics stop drinking; etc.
Mr. Sutphen has, over the years, conducted professional seminars to
teach people to be hypnotists, trainers, and counselors. Many of those
who conduct trainings and rallies come to Mr. Sutphen and say, "I'm
here because I know that what I'm doing works, but I don't know why."
After showing them how and
why, many have gotten out of the business or
have decided to approach it differently or in a much more loving and
supportive manner. And that, is good!
Mr. Sutphen adds...
Cult gatherings or
human-potential trainings are an
ideal environment to observe first-hand what is technically called the
"Stockholm Syndrome." This is a situation in which those who are
intimidated, controlled, or made to suffer, begin to love, admire, and
even sometimes sexually desire their controllers or captors.
But let me
inject a word of warning here: If you
think you can attend such gatherings and not be affected, you are
probably wrong. ... The only hope of attending such gatherings without
being affected is to... allow no positive or negative emotions to
surface. Few people are capable of such detachment.
Before I go
on, let's go back to the six tip-offs to
conversion. I want to mention the United States Government and military
boot camp. The Marine Corps talks about breaking men down before
"rebuilding" them as new men -- as marines! Well, that is exactly what
they do, the same way a cult breaks its people down and rebuilds them
as happy flower sellers on your local street corner...
the Decognition Process
breaking down an individual]
Once the initial
conversion is effected, cults,
armed services, and similar groups cannot have cynicism among their
members. Members must respond to commands and do as they are told,
otherwise they are dangerous
to the organizational control. This is
normally accomplished in a three step Decognition Process.
Step One is ALERTNESS
REDUCTION: The controllers
cause the nervous system to malfunction, making it difficult to
distinguish between fantasy and reality.
Step Two is PROGRAMED
CONFUSION: You are mentally
assaulted while your alertness is being reduced as in Step One. ...
During this phase of decognition, reality and illusion often merge and
perverted logic is likely to be accepted.
Step Three is THOUGHT
STOPPING: Techniques are used
to cause the mind to go "flat."... It is important to be aware that
when members or participants are instructed to use "thought-stopping"
techniques, they are told that they will benefit by so doing: they will
become "better soldiers" or "find enlightenment."
of the Masses
Mass Movements will
usually have a charismatic
leader. The followers want to convert others to their way of living or
impose a new way of life -- if
necessary, by legislating laws forcing
others to their view... This means enforcement by guns or
for that is the bottom line in law enforcement.
hatred, an enemy, is essential to the
success of a mass movement. ... "True Believers" [which The M+G+R
Foundation defines as fanatics] are mentally
unbalanced or insecure
people, or those without hope or friends. People don't look for allies
when they love, but they do when they hate or become obsessed with a
cause. And those who desire a new life and a new order feel the old
ways must be eliminated before the new order can be built.
hidden suggestions that only your
subconscious perceives. They can be audio, hidden behind music, or
visual, airbrushed into a picture, flashed on a screen so fast that you
don't consciously see them, or cleverly incorporated into a picture or
subliminal reprogramming tapes offer
verbal suggestions recorded at a low volume. ...but this is not quite
satisfactory... My [Mr.
attorney obtained copies of the
patents which I gave to some talented Hollywood sound engineers, asking
them to create a new technique. ...using this technique, there is no
way to ...detect the subliminals. In other words, although the
suggestions are being heard by the subconscious mind, they cannot be
monitored with even the most sophisticated equipment.
If we were
able to come up with this technique as
easily as we did, I can only imagine how sophisticated the technology
has become, with unlimited government or advertising funding....
The big question about subliminals is: do they work? Mr. Sutphen's
professional experience guarantees you that they do. Mr. Sutphen
A 1984 article in
the technical newsletter,
"Brain-Mind Bulletin," states that as much as 99 percent of our
cognitive activity may be "non-conscious," according to the director of
the Laboratory for Cognitive Psychophysiology at the University of
have personally experienced sitting in a Los
Angeles auditorium with over ten thousand people who were gathered to
listen to a current charismatic figure. Twenty minutes after entering
the auditorium, I became aware that I was going in and out of an
altered state. Those accompanying me experienced the same thing... By
careful observation, what appeared to be spontaneous demonstrations
were, in fact, artful manipulations. The only way I could figure that
the eyes-open trance had been induced was that a 6- to 7-cycle-per-
second vibration was being piped into the room behind the air
conditioner sound. That particular vibration generates alpha, which
would render the audience highly susceptible. Ten to 25 percent of the
population is capable of a somnambulistic level of altered states of
consciousness; for these
people, the suggestions of the speaker, if
non-threatening, could potentially be accepted as "commands".
let's carry this awareness a little farther.
There are also inaudible ELFs (extra-low frequency waves). These are
electromagnetic in nature. One of the primary uses of ELFs is to
communicate with our submarines. Dr. Andrija Puharich, a highly
respected researcher, in an attempt to warn U.S. officials about
Russian use of ELFs, set up an experiment. Volunteers were wired so
their brain waves could be measured on an EEG. They were sealed in a
metal room that could not be penetrated by a normal signal.
Puharich then beamed ELF waves at the volunteers.
ELFs go right through the earth and, of course, right through metal
walls. Those inside couldn't know if the signal was or was not being
sent. And Puharich watched the reactions on the technical equipment: 30
percent of those inside the room were taken over by the ELF signal in
six to ten seconds.
Waves below 6 cycles per second caused the subjects
to become very emotionally upset, and even disrupted bodily functions.
At 8.2 cycles, they felt very high... an elevated feeling, as though
they had been in masterful meditation, learned over a period of years.
Eleven to 11.3 cycles induced waves of depressed agitation leading to

get his invention back. (We are leaving out the details of this very

prepared for the manifestation of the False Christ which immediately
