THE RAPE OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS – -- CAPT AJIT VADAKAYIL
Arnold Swartznegger was given a truth serum in the Hollywood movie “ True Lies “.
All of a sudden it became fashionable to use truth serum to force criminal suspects to tell the truth..
Recently I saw the method of using narcoanalysis (Sodium Pentothal) on the so called killers of a school girl by the name of Aarushi Talwar, on a Indian national TV channel.
Note:- I am a bit of a body language expert. I do NOT see any real embedded grief in her own parents -- whose flesh and blood she is. Where is the catch?
I hasten to say, I found the method of interrogation 100% wrong. I was surprised that no experts objected, during the subsequent days .
These interrogators had no dang idea how the human subconscious works. During narcoanalysis , you must NOT suggest to the patient, like a hypnotist. The patient may own up for a murder he has never done. Hypnosis is a whole different ball game.
No justice was being done to the poor men ( scape goats actually ) being interrogated, who were getting slapped regularly to prevent them from falling asleep.
Subconscious mind responds to stimuli not pressure. A truth serum must not be used to weaken the resolve of the subject and make him more compliant to pressure.
It is a crime to RAPE the subconscious mind , by ignorant misuse of truth serum sodium pentathol .
By injecting a truth serum a subject's delusions, fears and fantasies cannot be distinguished from reality. People would even confess to crimes that they clearly did not commit, perhaps the murder of a non-existent mistress or rape of his neighbour.
Brain is not capable of distinguishing between reality and memory—the same neurons are sparked when we see something as when we merely remember it.
Brain cannot distinguish between an image of experience and one of vivid imagination. You can participate in an orgy or think of an orgy, your wee willie winkie will give the same standing ovation.
This drug, Sodium Pentothal is usually used in medicine as sedatives. It acts as a depressant on the central nervous system and bring on a state of complete relaxation and a feeling of well-being. It just makes you chatty, as inhibitions are lost..
So all that a "truth serum" will do is probably loosen a person's tongue when you're very suggestible during the sedative, or relaxed, stage of anaesthesia. But there's absolutely no guarantee of truth.
The reality is that you stay in this stage for only a very short time - so you have to be continually "topped up" with more drugs. This can involve many injections ( probably half a dozen) over a period of 2 - 8 hours. Sometimes with improper dose , the subject does not increase truth-telling, but merely increases talking; hence, both truth and bull will be revealed in that construct. The patient may lose the inhibition, but may not lose his self-control. . There is no drug that will relax a person's defences so that they will happily and reliably reveal the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
The only 100% reliable way is to falsely give the subject the tendency to believe that he has revealed more than they actually did, and then make him confess the next day , at a time when his system is totally free of this drug— basically a form of trickery.
If you were to drink a glass of water with Sodium Pentothal, it would depress your central nervous system, slow your heart rate and lower your blood pressure. All of the listed above affects are the functions of any commonplace sedative.
When a person is in coma , anastesia, narco serum, shock, seizure or sleeping—the subconscious minds are wide open. Anything that will be said in their presence will be accepted by the spirit which will begin carrying it out.
Any passing comment or trivial statements can have a devastating effect on our subconscious mind because it is not argumentative or analytical. It accepts all statements directly on the face value. Even prayers and beliefs are positive signals which we give to our subconscious mind as something acceptable and true.
The subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real experience and one that you vividly imagine. You can fool it.
It is necessary to understand how the subconscious works. The subconscious mind does not think—it is only a store house of our experience. It has no sense of time. It cannot differentiate between positive and negative input. It cannot tell the difference between real and imagines experience.
The conscious mind can be engaged 100% in talking or deep thinking while the subconscious keeps the car on the road. The conscious and subconscious minds are connected through a filter. So we cant read the contents of our subconscious mind
Conscious = induction+ deduction ( determines what is to be done ). LEFT BRAIN LOBE : Numbers, written language, reasoning, spoken language, scientific skills , RH control
Subconscious = only deduction ( no thinking , draws conclusions, does not care for right or wrong, gives the power to do the job ) RIGHT BRAIN LOBE ( for right handers ): Insight, 3D forms , art, imagination, music, left hand control
Subconscious, mental activities within an individual proceed without his awareness. Dreams and slips of the tongue are concealed examples of unconscious content too threatening to be confronted directly.
When the situation demands we are able to use the subconscious memory to the full extent—but only in relation to the specific problem. The conscious mind has limited memory. The subconscious mind has unlimited memory.
Subconscious mind never sleeps even in a coma. the Subconscious has a tendency to accept what it imagines as real.
Every experience we have ever had is impressed somewhere in the electrochemical cells in our brain. The brain records every thing—every thing senses by our 5 senses—and it is imprinted in the brain cells for ever. Whenever something reactivates those cells we get a mental picture duplicating the original experience.
The central nervous system does not know the difference between visualization and the event. Visualizing you are having sex and doing the real thing has the same effect. The picture in our mind has an impact on every cell in our bodies. Thinking is not an action of the mind , but an action of our entire body. Tell your subconscious what you want repeatedly and it will produce it. You can call this visualization or intention.
The subconscious has a perfect memory. Every thing you have experienced using your 5 senses is part of the permanent memory of the subconscious mind, which never sleeps The subconscious mind acts on old beliefs stored over a lifetime. Many of those beliefs you may have accepted without thinking. Or you may have absorbed them when you were too young to exercise choice.
Hypnosis is state wherein your conscious (thinking) mind becomes bored … it relaxes and stops thinking Persons who can do self hypnosis has discovered the secret of successful living. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.—no one can hypnotise you against your will. There is no loss of consciousness in hypnosis.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, during which the conscious critical mind is relaxed and relatively inactive, and the doorway to the subconscious, inner mind is opened with a person’s permission. A hypnotist talks directly to the subconscious mind, without interference from reasoning . Truth serums are also used in psychiatry to help patients speak more freely during psychoanalysis because they help the patient release many thoughts locked in the subconscious.
The subconscious mind is protective. Hypnotized people will accept suggestions that are acceptable, and reject suggestions that are not acceptable. a person is in Hypnosis, he is not asleep. He or she is very much aware of all that is going on. In actuality, in Hypnosis, one’s senses become heightened and more acute.
Hypnosis is not a truth serum. Subjects in Hypnosis reveal no secrets in the Hypnotic State that they would not reveal (because they want to) in the Waking State. Hypnosis is a cooperative and collaborative relationship. The subject retains full control and responsibility for his or her actions at all times.
The hypnotized subject or patient is NOT asleep. He is relaxed, comfortable, focused, and in a state of daydream type thinking. His analyzing thinking mind (Conscious mind) is turned off and his feeling and intuitive and creative mind (Subconscious) is aware of everything that is going on.
A hypnotized subject cannot be made to do anything he is not willing to do. If a person is not willing to cooperate, he cannot be hypnotized. Hypnosis is NOT about the hypnotist controlling the patient. It is about the patient gaining more control over himself.
By following the "hypnotist's" instructions, you become more suggestible. When you are in this altered state of increased suggestibility, your mental "clutter" is cleared away so that you can pay attention to the hypnotist's suggestions and be open to experiencing new perspectives and solutions to your problem.
Once the Hypnotic State is induced and the doorway to the Subconscious Mind is opened, with your permission, the competent Hypnotist can provide information, in a language and form that the Subconscious can accept, to help you change the behaviors, feelings and thoughts that you want to change. We utilize the fact that the Subconscious Mind has the ability (actually the tendency) to accept what it imagines as real.
Some people can go into hypnosis while riding a stationary bicycle ( repetitive ). , if a hypnotherapist`s suggestion conflicts with a client's value system, the client simply brings him or herself up out of hypnosis; they just "wake up." a person cannot be hypnotized to do anything not in line with their moral and value system.
Olympic teams have Hypnotists to facilitate top performances from its athletes. A hypnotic stage is not mysterious. You actually enter and exit this state of mind many times during a ordinary day. Something triggers this state.
Subconscious mind has a memory of 100 trillion images, all our experiences, emotions and feelings are stored as an image or a sound in a digitised manner . Data that cannot be recalled are retained in the subconscious. A person may be unconscious of ever having been locked in a closet as a child, yet under hypnosis he may recall the experience vividly.
Negative suggestions with growing children gets rooted in their subconscious mind and is reflected later in their behavior.
During hypnosis –our conscious mind goes into a trance and suggestions are given directly to the subconscious mind, which cannot argue but accepts the suggestion at its face value.
We do self hypnosis unknowingly several times an a day while doing our day to day activities. This is how our body learns to relax otherwise we would die of stress at a very early age. Any monotonous sequence of events make it boring for the brain and eventually it starts producing a hormone called Serotin which induces a drowsy state of mind.
On my ship if have seen the POWERS OF VODKA as a truth serum especially in conjunction with suitable music and blue light for the alpha state , that can open pathways to the subconscious.
