Conditions for Mind Control
http://lgattruth.wordpress.com/2006/11/17/conditions-for-mind-control/

IN ORDER TO INFLUENCE OR BRAINWASH PEOPLE, THE FOLLOWING METHODS WORK BEST:
•Isolate them in new surroundings apart from old friends or reference-points
•Provide them with instant acceptance from a seemingly loving group
•Keep them away from competing or critical ideas
•Provide an authority figure that everyone seems to acknowledge as having some special skill or awareness
•Provide a philosophy that seems logical and appears to answer all or the most important questions in life
•Structure all or most activities so that there is little time for privacy or independent action or thought
•Provide a sense of "us" versus "them"
•Promise instant or imminent solutions to deep or long-term problems
•And employ covert or disguised hypnotic techniques

"Damage to posterior parietal areas induced unusually fast changes of a stable personality dimension related to transcendental self-referential awareness. Thus, dysfunctional parietal neural activity may underpin altered spiritual and religious attitudes and behaviors."

This provides valuable insights into the neurological causes of human religious and "spiritual" phenomena.

All brain functions, including outputs such as religion and "spirituality," are physically caused by neuronal functions or dysfunctions.

The studies of the brain (neuroscience) and the studies of the mind (psychology) would explain quite a bit of why people got hook on religious nonsense.

The case mentioned.

"無穿內褲犯案現任平安福音堂傳道人吳漢超在港鐵月台先以肚腩頂少女手肘,入車廂後復以勃起的陽具磨擦少女大腿在東區裁判法院被裁定一項非禮罪名成立。傳道人被揭發案發時無穿內褲,此舉異於常人,亦令少女更易看見他下體勃起。" (18 March 2011)

Derren Brown

In reply to this post by Alex
In last session, we have watched the British mentalist Derren Brown's amazing demonstration of mind-reading and his ability to tell whether a person is telling a lie by split-second minute clues in facial expressions, posture, and/or voice.


In a subsequent email, Yvonne suggested trying this:

I Used to Be in a Cult and Here's What It Did to My Brain

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/diane-benscoter/extremist-brain_b_3998314.html

"If we hope to prevent extremist terrorism we have to begin with understanding the mental condition of extremist leaders. We also need to understand the mental condition of those most vulnerable to extremist tactics. Finally, we need to understand manipulation, the vehicle that connects the extremist leader and it's victims."
